A 45-year-old man is in custody
after allegedly shooting at one
woman and holding law enforce-
ment officers at bay for about
seven-and-a-half hours, from 8:30
p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 till 4 a.m. Fri-
day. Before the incident was over
Hendry County officers were
joined by the Collier County Sher-
iff's Tactical Team and Glades

Who needs American Idol
when there's the Miss Swamp
Cabbage Pageant?
This year the audience got a
double dose of talent: The
2007 Swamp Cabbage
Pageant both queen and
princess categories, were filled
with energy, excitement,
grace, class, elegance, poise
and loads of talent.
The pageant began with an
entertaining opening dance
number to "I Need a Hero"
from the movie Shrek 2, per-
formed by all the contestants
dressed up in patriotic outfits
of their choice.
The theme this year was
"Celebrating American
Heroes." Dressed as their own
American Hero, each contest-
ant came on stage and recited
a speech about her hero of
choice. The heroes ranged
from Christa Macauliff to Saca-
gawea and included Rosa
Louise Parks, Daniel Boone, a
military man, Amelia Earhart,
astronaut Dr. Sally Ride, Base-
ball legend Joe DiMaggio,
Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney
and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


8:22 p.m. Feb. 8 concerning a
domestic incident at 4575 SR 29S.
It indicated that Joseph William
"Cowboy" Castelucci, who was
reportedly intoxicated, was barri-
caded and armed inside his resi-
dence. Shots had been fired.
Upon arrival deputies spoke
with Debra Hernandez, 18, who
lives at the residence with her
mother, Tami Jackson and uncle,
Samuel David Gray. Castelucci, her
mother's boyfriend, also resides
there. She said that, after an argu-
ment between her mother and


Castelucci, she and her mother
were standing on the porch when
a Hispanic man walked up and
asked for "Cowboy." Seeing the
man approach the women,
Castelucci became irate, according
to Ms. Hernandez. He kicked Ms.
Jackson in the face several times
while wearing cowboy boots. She
believed her mother was uncon-
scious.
Ms. Hernandez said she then
saw Castelucci with a long bar-
reled gun, which he pointed at
her while she was in the yard.


She ducked behind a vehicle, lay-
ing flat on the ground, and heard
a shot which she believed was
directed at her. She then saw
Castelucci point the gun at her
uncle. She said she tried to go to
her mother, but heard three
more shots and ran around the
other side of the residence.
Castelucci went back inside with
his gun and the sheriff's deputies
arrived.
Ms. Hernandez provided a
sworn taped statement of the
incident and Castelucci was


arrested and charged with one
count of aggravated assault. Ms.
Jackson did not wish to press
charges, however, since they all
lived together Castelucci was
charged with one count of bat-
tery domestic violence.
According to Sheriff Lee,
Castelucci had been arrested pre-
viously for trespassing and resist-
ing arrest without violence.
Castelucci is being held in
Hendry County Jail under
$20,000 bond.

The incredibly talented
Queen and Princess from last
year, Maria Dolores Pridgin
and Miss Mallory Noelle Allen,
respectively, kept the audience
entertained. There wasn't a
dry eye in the house when last
year's Princess, 15 year dance
student, Mallory Allen, per-
formed a very emotional lyri-
cal jazz dance to Martina
McBride's "My Daughter's
Eyes," which she dedicated to
her mother. Maria Pridgen


kept the audience entertained
with her
trumpet/singing/dancing jazz
performance.
During the five-minute
intermission the ska/reggae
band Engine 46 entertained
the audience, receiving a
demand for an encore as their
reward.

LaBelle City Commissioners
are considering providing secu-
rity for the Kid Jones Park in the
Ford/Sunset Park neighbor-
hood. They were approached
by Nora Fagin on behalf of the
Ford/Sunset Park Community
Association at their Feb. 8 meet-
ing, requesting an attendant for
the park. The centerpiece of that
neighborhood, which is used for
numerous community and pri-
vate events, is scheduled for
$250,000 in renovations includ-
ing a restroom and covered bas-
ketball courts.
Ms. Fagin told the commis-
sioners that the park is often
abused, saying they need an


"accountable" attendant to live
on the premises and act as a
caretaker. This person would do
minor upkeep and deter misuse
of the park
Commissioner Puletti said he
visited the park late one night
and agreed the park is a gather-
ing place where "bad things"
happen and "anything goes right
now." Some of those gathering
there are not local residents, he
pointed out. He said the sheriff's
office is patrolling, but that only
scatters the loiterers for a short
time.
City Attorney Owen Luckey
will draft a proposed contract
for a caretaker who would be
vendor.


Greenleaf gets Golden Apple


Megan Greenleaf is original-
ly from the San Francisco Bay
area, from a small town
named Piedmont. Megan grad-
uated from the University of
California, Berkeley, with a
bachelor's degree in Political
Science. Upon graduation, she
and her husband Mel Green-
leaf moved to LaBelle where
Mel got a job as a beekeeper.
She said, "I think having
children before I started teach-
ing helped me understand
how children learn." When I
started teaching, my oldest
daughter Kelle was nine, Juli
was seven and Alysen was
four. She was also pregnant
with her youngest daughter,
Suzi.
Mrs. Greenleaf has been a
teacher for a total of 19 years,
becoming a teacher at age 34.


Previously she worked at a
bank, stayed home with her
children, was a substitute
teacher and did bookkeeping
for her husband's beekeeping
company.
Before becoming a teacher,
she remembers fondly, "I
began my career in education
as a paraprofessional with
some of the greats, namely Jan
Gann, Annie Ruth Howard and
Mrs. Guthrie." At the time she
was a Girl Scout leader. That
was when then teachers Jan
Gann and Sue (Mundy) Scha-
effer, encouraged her to
become a teacher.
Mrs. Greenleaf taught
Kindergarten, second grade,
fourth grade, high school, third
grade, was a reading resource
teacher and a reading coach.
She likes third grade the best,


"Because they're at a great
stage: They have a love of
learning, and yet they're
becoming individual learners
and the curriculum is great!
They're at that point where
they still like school. They're in
awe of learning and have a
refreshing attitude. I get to see
those 'ah-ha moments' every
day in somebody."
Mrs. Greenleaf is involved in
Teaching After School, Cur-
riculum Mapping Committee,
Accelerated Reader Commit-
tee and Teachers as Profes-
sional Education Readers
(Taper) Group.
Her most memorable
accomplishment in teaching is
when she started a book give
away program for Accelerated

Reader at two schools in which
children are rewarded for
reaching their reading goals by
receiving a book to take home.
For some children, she says,
this may be one of the few
books they have to call their
own.
Mrs. Greenleaf received her
Masters in reading from FGCU
in 2004.
iHer students are very excited
that she is the Golden Apple
Teacher of the Year. In his Letter
to Santa, one of her students
wrote that for Christmas he
wanted her to be teacher of the
year for the district, regional
and state levels.
Her advice to new teachers
would be, "Don't be easily dis-
couraged by paperwork and
routines. If you invest the time
in the job it's very rewarding.
But it takes time: It takes about
3-5 years for teaching to
become profitable, but I would
never do anything different."
Her favorite thing about
teaching is the enthusiasm that
children bring. The look in their
eyes when they finally get a
concept is priceless. Her least
favorite thing is all the paper-
work to keep track of.
When asked how teaching
has changed over the years she
says, "Our expectations for chil-
dren are much higher than they
used to be. What used to be
first grade curriculum is now
taught to Kindergarteners."
Mrs. Greenleaf hopes to con-
tinue her education by getting
her Masters as an Education
Specialist or her Doctorate
degree in Education.
Teaching runs in the Green-
leaf family. Her husband, Mel,
has been teaching for 12 years.
He currently teaches Biology at
LHS; eldest daughter Kelle has
been teaching for about three
years and currently teaches
Band, French and Algebra at
LHS; Juli her second daughter
has been teaching about one
year and currently teaches ESE
at UES; Alysen, her third daugh-
ter is attending the University of
Florida for a major in Public
Health and a minor in Educa-
tion and youngest daughter
Suzi is a senior at LHS. Suzi will
soon be attending USF Honors
College where she will major in
American History and minor in

described herself as blessed,

went into full detail as to why.

Education. After graduating she
hopes to work in a museum or
become a teacher.
So, not only has Mrs. Green-
leaf taught others students, but
has raised teachers of her own
that will continue teaching in
the future.
Laura Chambliss
Laura Chambliss has taught
eighth grade math at LMS for 25
years. She is involved in the Fel-
lowship of Christian Students, a
Lead Teacher, Peer Teacher and
Math Department Head. Her
most memorable accomplish-
ment in teaching was when she
had a young man in her Inten-
sive Math class a few years ago.
He had scored a 1 on the Math
section of his 7th grade FCAT
and his mother, who happened
to be a former student of hers,
requested that she be his math
teacher. The two of them
worked diligently to get his
math skills up to grade level in
class. Their efforts, paired with
the Math Lab, paid off. He
scored a 3 on the FCAT Math
section. She was blessed by the
faith of this young man's moth-
er, who put her son's math edu-
cation in her hands, and doubly
blessed to see that her faith in
Mrs. Chambliss ability to teach
her son was validated.
Heidi Dana
Heidi Dana has been a
teacher for 19 years. She has
taught at Alva Elementary and


movie Pearl Harbor. Elesa Zim-
merly kept the audience clap-
ping with her upbeat song
"Think" by Aretha Franklin.
Courtney Bancroft kept the audi-
ence tapping their toes with her
clogging rendition of "Old Time
Rock-N-Roll." Princess Callie
Burley kept the audience's
attention with the signing of
Mandy Moore's "Only Hope."
Daphne Glisson was full of ener-
gy with her fast paced Gymnas-
tics/Dance routine to "The Way
You Make Me Feel."
Now on to the queen contest-
ants: Decked out in full disco
gear, Valerie Cantu took the
audience back to the '70s with
her John Travolta look-alike
dance to "You Gotta Dance" by
the Bee Gees. MaHali Keel kept
the audience intrigued with her

Country Oaks Elementary,
where she is currently a third
grade teacher. She is involved in
the Writing Committee, DIBELS
Testing, United Streaming Team
Member, Turning Point Grant
and the Cowadunga Fundrais-
ing Committee. Her most mem-
orable accomplishment in
teaching is watching her stu-
dents achieve and overcome
their learning difficulties to suc-
ceed in life.
Brenda Milligan
Brenda Milligan has been a
teacher for 24 years. She taught
at Bayou Lafourche Academy
High School, Portsmouth Ele-

ness Committee, Participant in

ments is when academically

doing so.

gan did a unique karate/dance

"Hurt."
Miss.Higgins is the very first


a fourth grade teacher. She is Co-
Chairman of the School Advisory
Council, a Lead Teacher, part of
the Curriculum Committee, New
Teacher Induction Team and
helps with Project Graduation.
She said, "The nature of teach-
ing is such that you rarely see in
the short term the effects you
have on your students in the
long term. Every student I have
taught has affected me in the
long term. It has either been in
the validation of doing some-
thing "right" that worked, or in
the realization that my best
efforts may not have been
enough for that particular child.
It is those realizations that cause
me to continually seek perfec-
tion in my teaching through pro-
fessional growth. This is one rea-
son I sought National Board
Certification a few years ago.
This very. rigorous process
required deep reflection into my
teaching style and content.
Receiving National Board Certifi-
cation has been my most memo-
rable accomplishment in my
career."

nominated were: Terry Craw-
ford, a fifth grade teacher at

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, February 15, 2007


Family mourns loss of boy


A family has been left to
grieve the loss of their nine-year-
old boy after a pile of dirt col-
lapsed on him as he was playing
alone. William Henry Brogdon
died at his home Jan. 28.
According to the sheriff's
report, the boy was last seen
alive about 1:50 p.m. Jan. 28
when he was looking for some-
one to play with him. About 4
p.m. the family began looking
for the boy around their proper-
ty on North River Road when


they noticed part of a dirt
mound had collapsed. The
mound was approximately 15-
feet high and about 30 inches of
it had collapsed. The boy's jack-
et and shoes were sitting on top
of a small boat next to the dirt
mound. Several toy cars were
also nearby. The family began
digging with shovels and soon
asked a neighbor to bring in a
backhoe to assist. After several
passes, the boy's body was dis-
covered.


The father pulled the boy out
of the ground and ran into the
house where emergency per-
sonnel were called.
Lt. Joe Lee and Capt. Joe
Johnson helped investigate the
incident. The medical examiner
stated that the boy died of
asphyxiation.
William was the son of Holly
Ann Brogdon and William Lee
Brogdon Sr. He was a second
grader at LaBelle Elementary
School where he was well liked
as an all around "good kid."


HCSO solves multiple burglaries


During the past few weeks the
Big V Restaurant, Taxi Lobo,
Caloosa Belle office, Jackson River
Furniture Store and the LaBelle
Counseling Center have all been
burglarized. According to Sheriff
Ronnie Lee, both the Road Patrol
and Criminal Investigations Divi-
sion have worked long hours
towards solving these crimes.
On Wednesday, Feb. 7, these
efforts paid off. Two men were
arrested and booked into the coun-
ty jail charged with committing the
burglaries,

Letter to the Editor


A Promise Kept
Last December I wrote a letter
to the editor because I was
among the many Floridians
whose home insurance had not
been renewed. I had for several
years been covered by Vanguard
for $1,800. Now the only policy
available to me was through Citi-
zen's Property Insurance Corpo-
ration .The cost just under $8,000.
I was outraged and said so pub-
licly. I felt the problem was
caused by the legislators so I con-
tacted many of them. The only
one to answer me was our repre-
sentative Grimsley. She promised
she would work in the January
special session to alleviate the
insurance debacle.
Representative Grimsley has
an office in Labelle and has office
hours usually announced in the
Caloosa Belle. A few weeks ago I
met with her, brought her all the
insurance correspondence I had
accumulated and asked her what


if anything had the spe

in my situation. We t

papers and promised
she could do. I must ad

or the health of the citizens in
South Florida, or cause irrepara-
ble damage to the Everglades
National Park and the Caloosa-
hatchee estuaries.
"Coal is the hands down dirti-
est method by which to generate


electrical power. Hand waving
promises by FP&L and the
watered down EPA aside, this
proposed Glades County coal
plant will pollute in many, many
ways," said Dr. William Louda,
Associate Scientist and Environ-
mental Chemistry Professor,
Florida Atlantic University. "This
pollution will not be just a local
occurrence but it will spread in
the air and the water throughout
South Florida and is contraindi-
cated in light of the national 10
Billion+ dollar effort to rejuve-
nate the Everglades and associ-
ated watersheds," he said.
The purpose of this organiza-
tion is to oppose the construc-
tion of any new coal fired power
plant in Glades County, or any-
where in the state of Florida, due
to the serious consequences to
public health, global warming
and climate change and over
concern for the deterioration of
this region's pristine natural her-
itage.
SING members also agree
there are alternative and cleaner
forms of energy that should be
used in place of a coal fired


power plant. This power plant,
being called the Glades Power
Park, is currently under review
by the Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
SING's President, Rhonda
Roff, an environmental scientist,
founded the group in December,
2006 and the membership has
grown in numbers as people
begin to understand the issue
"Our beloved Everglades ecosys-
tem and the health of its irihabiti-
tants are at risk from the pollu-
tion FP&L's proposal would
cause if constructed. In a state in
which all of the coastal, and
most of the interior fish are on
the "do not eat" list due to mer-
cury contamination, even the
cleanest coal-fired power plant
near Lake Okeechobee, its "Liq-
uid Heart", is unthinkable.."
The proposal; is expected to
take up to 18 months of review
and if approved FP&L will com-
mence construction on 5,000
acres of land in 2010. Despite
projections of economic devel-
opment for a county that is con-
sidered one of the poorest in the
State, the members of SING are
convinced the environmental


damage is not a trade off that
anyone can afford. The Glades
County commission met for
months with FPL representatives
and without public hearings,
and changed the permitted uses
under the agriculture zoning
designation to allow for a power
plant.
The group is planning to
stage rallies and circulate peti-
tions as well as testify at hear-
ings. SING has developed educa-
tional materials to disseminate
to the media, to citizens and to
elected officials about the fallacy
of supporting this proposal.
SING's Vice-President Steve
Hein stated," With the danger-
ous emissions coming from a
giant pulverized coal plant, the
environmental injustice to the
poor and disenfranchised resi-
dents of Moore Haven, Florida,
may only be matched by the
water and air quality degrada-
tion of an entire region".
Any individuals who wish to
obtain more information about
this proposed plant and support
the goals of SING are invited to
contact SING at www.saveit-
nowglades.org.


"Irony" makes its return to Hendry County


Having survived the horrors of
September 11, 2001, "IRONY,"
despite continuing rumors to the
contrary, is alive and flourishing.
In fact, the year 2006 far exceeded
any year on record, other than
1941, in "IRONIC occurrences,
after the debacle of Pearl Harbor
and the start of World War II.
For anyone doubting the
veracity of "IRONY'S" return, you
have only to recall all the pettifog-
gery, obfuscation, half-truths and
double dealing foisted off on all
citizens by every level of govern-
ment in the past year.
"IRONY," as such, has been a
favorite subterfuge of govern-
mental officials, at all levels, going
back to medieval times to dis-
guise the fact that "IRONY" is
more fun than the truth because it
is more fun than the truth. It is
government's weapon against
hopelessness, as a tool that trans-
fers power to the powerless as it
seems to give a feeling of belong-


t's your worrl
Get InvolvedU

ing to a club. A club where every-
one's smarter than everyone else,
and the whole world seems to be
pretty dumb. Like that old saying,
"Misery loves company."
The dictionary describes
"IRONY" as, "The using of words
to mean the opposite of their liter-
al meaning." So in today's dog-
eat-dog cultural climate, "IRONY"
is said with "tongue in cheek." It's
sarcastic humor with an exagger-
ated message arousing hope and
promising disaster if challenged.
Reducing their lies to the jocu-
lar tone sets us all up for the fact
that we are being lied to, but
knowingly as a lie in a joking
manner, with the implied mes-
sage that if we don't get it, how
stupid we are if we take the situa-


tion seriously. In other words,
"Trust me. Regardless of the facts,
I know what's best for you."
Nothing threatens the estab-
lishment like the truth. You need
only to listen to the discordant
tones emanating from Washing-
ton, D. C., placing the responsibil-
ity for personal behavior on the
citizens, not on their elected lead-
ers. So instead of ushering in, as
promised, an age of sincerity and
cooperation, joining together to
believe in and promote a better
world, we're besieged with vin-
dictive charges and counter
charges across the aisles.
To be brutally frank, most peo-
ple consciously or unconsciously,
don't like honesty. They find it
boring, listless and to a greater or
lesser degree, prefer the smug,
condescending approach, since
its got some safety built into it,
laugh at it, and everybody then
assumes you knew it was all a


joke anyway.
"IRONY" cuts across age
groups, but is most accepted and
prevalent in the younger genera-
tions, as they have known it to be
a defining issue their entire lives.
In a way, "IRONY" is a method of
humor that deflates a cliche or a
specific way of thinking by show-
ing you are taking life too serious-
ly. That's why politicians and the
media love it. It's one of the most
subtly applicable ways of making
us see the world for what it is, a
myriad, almost mythical mixture
of truths and half-truths,
enshrined in a vacillating hope
that all men are created equal,
and are fundamentally honest,
trying to do the right thing.
IRONICALLY," that's exactly
why I continue to write these arti-
cles.
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville (Hendry
County Citizen & Taxpayer)


Save children from 'nature deficit' disorder


Marti Daltry, President
Caloosahatchee River Citizens
Association/Riverwatch
Pick up a newspaper or maga-
zine today and you will probably
see yet another article about obe-
sity in children. This generation of
kids not only suffers from over-
weight but has problems with
mental health issues such as
depression, low self-esteem,
attention deficit disorder and anx-
iety. Health experts like psycholo-
gists and pediatricians offer many
methods of treatment but there is
one treatment that is easy and
free with no side effects. That
treatment is Nature.
Numerous studies have been
conducted on the effect of Nature
on children and adults. According
to writer Lisa Roberts with the
McClatchy News Service, spend-


ing time outdoors with nature
can soothe the mind, increase
creativity and bolster self-esteem.
The effects of "green," whether it
is a view of a patch of grass and
trees or just spending some time
out of doors, result in less vio-
lence, a calmer mind and greater
self-esteem. Walking outdoors is
excellent exercise, too.
Richard Louv's book, Last
Child in the Woods: Saving Our
Children from Nature-Deficit Dis-
order, provides further documen-
tation on the benefits of Nature
for our offspring. Without the
experience of nature first-hand, a
phenomenon called nature-defi-
cient disorder occurs Whereby
the human disconnect from ones
natural surroundings may result
in physical and emotional illness,
depression and crime.


For the health and well-being
of both you and your family, take
a walk outdoors. Following this
year's Swamp Cabbage theme,
"It Started With a Seed," the
LaBelle Nature Park is offering
free nature walks on Saturday,
Feb. 24, and Sunday, Feb. 25,
from 1-5: p.m. Park brochures
will be available with a map of
the trails and information about
the plants and wildlife that thrive
in the park. Master Florida Natu-
ralist, Margaret England, will be
on hand to answer your ques-
tions. The LaBelle Nature Park is
located at the corner of Frasier
and Hardee, one block north of
the Log Cabin Restaurant.
The LaBelle Nature Park is
comprised of nine acres of land
adjacent to the Captain Hendry
house on the banks of the


Caloosahatchee River. The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict leases the property to the City
of LaBelle. The Hendry-LaBelle
Recreation Department manages
the park. Various community and
environmental groups such as
the LaBelle Rotary Club, the Boy
Scouts, Coalition for Eco-Recre-
ation and the Caloosahatchee
River Citizens Association/River-
watch have worked together to
maintain the Nature Park trails
and remove non-native plants.
For more information, please
check out the LaBelle Nature
Park website, www.labellena-
turepark.org.
Come join us Feb. 24 and 25
for the afternoon and get re-
acquainted with Nature at its
best.
It will do your mind and body
good!


Global warming a major health concern


By Rebekah Berard, MD
This weekend I rented a horror
movie one that scared the living
daylights out of me and left me
sleepless in my bed. No, it wasn't
a movie about zombies or serial
killers, but something much more
sinister global warming. I know,
it sounds silly, but the anxiety and
dread that I felt after watching the
Al Gore movie "An Inconvenient
Truth," was real, and I was left
convinced that our world, and
therefore our health, is in serious
danger if we don't start making
changes today.
So, what is global warming,
and why did this movie scare me
so much? First, a little science:
Carbon dioxide and other gases
warm the surface of the planet
naturally by trapping solar heat in
the atmosphere. This is a good
thing because it keeps our planet


habitable. However, by burning
fossil fuels such as coal, gas and
oil and clearing forests we have
dramatically increased the
amount of carbon dioxide in the
Earth's atmosphere and tempera-
tures are rising.
The vast majority of scientists
agree that global warming is real,
it's already happening and that it is
the result of our human activities
and not a natural occurrence. The
evidence is overwhelming and
undeniable. We're already seeing
changes. Glaciers are melting,
plants and animals are being
forced from their habitat, and the
number of severe storms and
droughts is increasing.
If the warming continues, we
can expect catastrophic conse-
quences: Deaths from global
warming will double in just 25
years to 300,000 people a year,


global sea levels could rice by
more than 20 feet with the loss of
shelf ice in Greenland and Antarc-,
tica, devastating coastal-areas
such as Florida. During the movie,
a map of Florida was a depiction
of what would happen if sea levels
rise even as far inland as
Immokalee and Clewiston would
be completely flooded.
But there is good news!
According to the movie, there is
no doubt we can solve this prob-
lem, and we have a moral obliga-
tion to do so to protect this world
for our children and grandchil-
dren. First, small changes to our
daily routine can add up to big dif-
ferences in helping to stop global
warming. Buy a fuel-efficient car
with a higher mile-per-gallon ratio
or even a hybrid car. Buy energy-
efficient appliances. Drive less
and walk more. Use a thermostat


on your house that turns the air
conditioning off when you are not
home -1 made this simple change
at my house and shaved $100 per
month off of my electric bill a few
months ago. Conserve electricity
at home and work, and recycle
whenever possible.
For more information, rent the
movie "An Inconvenient Truth." I
got it from NetFlix, but it is avail-
able anywhere that movies are
rented. I urge teachers to show
their classes, and families to
watch it together. Becoming
aware of the problem is the first
step to finding a solution. Contact
your local, state, and federal repre-
sentatives and urge them to
reduce greenhouse gases and find
alternate sources of energy before
it is too late. You can also go to cli-
matecrisis.net for more informa-
tion on how to make a difference.

Hendry Regional Medical
Center has announced that it has
acquired a new X-Ray system
that will help the Radiologist per-
form both radiography and fluo-
roscopy procedures. The Preci-
sion" 500D, with its digital
fluoroscopic capabilities, was
acquired from GE Healthcare
and will enable the Radiologist
at Hendry Regional to confident-
ly diagnose conditions in the
chest, spine, bone, digestive
tract, uterus and bladder.
The new system is a replace-
ment for the unit that was dam-
aged during Hurricane Wilma.
"Although the systems are
similar, the newer technology
produces a superior, quality
image and should help us to get
through a patient's exam much
more quickly than before," said
Ed Chiarelli, Imaging Services
Director at HRMC. "From broken
bones to digestive conditions,
we can address each patient's
situation with speed, ease and
confidence. The Precision 500D,
with its digital acquisition of
images, allows our physicians to
easily perform a broad array of
general X-Ray procedures as
well as the more advanced fluo-
roscopy procedures," explains
Ed Chiarelli.
X-Ray is the most established
and commonly used form of
medical imaging. It is a fast and
easy way for a physician to view
and assess broken bones, and it
can also be used to help physi-
cians diagnose and monitor the
progression of degenerative dis-
eases. Regaining fluoroscopic
capability will once again enable
the physician study flow or
motion in patients, when neces-
sary. If your doctor has pre-

EDC plans its


goals for future


Hendry County Economic
Development Council
(HCEDC) will hold a strategic
planning session on Friday,
March 2, from noon to 3:30
pm at the Port LaBelle Inn in
LaBelle.
The purpose of the meet-
ing is to review and update
the current strategic plan.
Since 1997 HCEDC has
worked to meet the goals set
for its purpose: to promote
economic development with-
in Hendry County; to coordi-
nate business development
activities; to promote,
encourage, and coordinate
education and vocational

LHS has award-winning

performance at mock

trial competition


Students at LaBelle High
School who signed up entered
the Florida Law Related Educa-
tion Association Inc. high
school mock trial competition
for the first time. It is a
statewide competition that is
an actual enactment of a civil
case. L.H.S. students participat-
ed in the Lee County competi-
tion January 30, 31 and Febru-
ary 1, at the Lee County Justice
Center and the Middle District
Federal Courthouse.
In the first round they com-
peted against various Lee
County teams. They finished in
the middle third of the teams in


competition but won the pres-
tigious Professionalism Award.
The Professionalism Award is
given to the team that demon-
strated the highest level of
ethics and professional court-
room decorum throughout the
competition.
LaBelle High School will be
competing, against the top
teams from Charlotte, Lee and
Collier counties in the Twenti-
eth Judicial Circuit Competi-
tion on February 15 and 16, in
effort to advance to the State
finals March 29 through March
31, in Orlando.

ID theft, you can protect yourself


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum has
issued a consumer alert follow-
ing the recent theft of data involv-
ing customers' information from
numerous Florida stores. Con-
sumers who may have used
credit cards at TJ Maxx, Mar-
shalls, AJ Wright or HomeGoods
stores between May 2003 and
December 2006 should closely
monitor their financial state-
ments and credit reports, McCol-


lum cautioned.
TJX Companies, Inc., the par-
ent company of TJ Maxx, Mar-
shalls, HomeGoods and A.J.
Wright stores, recently reported
that its computer systems were
hacked late last year and cus-
tomer data had been stolen.
Company officials said the
hackers broke into a system that

tomers throughout the United
States and possibly elsewhere. If
you believe you are a victim of
identity theft, report this to the
police and then request that the
national credit bureaus place a
fraud alert on your credit report.
Notify banks and creditors
involved of questionable charges


or accounts. Keep records of all
telephone calls and follow up in
writing with credit bureaus,
banks and creditors. Victims may
call the Attorney General's Fraud
Hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-

visit the Attorney General's web-
site at http://myfloridalegal.com.

Benevolent gift
LaBelle Community Christian School deeply appreciates
Pastor Alma Baez and the Church of God: Rock of Salva-
tion for its generous gift. They have given the school the
liberty to use this money where it is mostly needed. Prin-
cipal Sammy Co said, "Our school receives no govern-
mental funding and solely relies on the tuitions and dona-
tions from private, business, and church donors. Our new
elementary building this year has generated additional
expenses to the school. It was a needed blessing that
came at the right time." For more information concerning
the school or if you would like to make a donation to the
school, please call 863-675-3277.

Don't miss 'Southern Fried Murder'


You won't believe your ears at
the Firehouse Players' new offer-
ing, Southern Fried Murder by
Billy St. John. When the Copote
family answers its matriarch's
invitation to a dinner party to find
out just how the old dowager
plans to disperse her millions
after her demise, things start pop-
ping.
Meet the Copote clan an
eccentric blend of old southern
gentility (Magnolia Davis Copote
played by Joe Thomas), her high
living son (Louisiana "Uncle Lou"
also played by Joe Thomas),
spiteful cousin Nolie (played by
Linda Reecer), swamp stompers
(brother and sister duo Stump
and Will Slattery played by Axl
Jones and Martha Taylor), a New


York theater socialite (Maggie St.
Lawrence played by Brittany
Marie), a somewhat disoriented
cousin (Magnolia Woods played
by Nancy McGlassen), the old
lady's sleazy lawyer (Ben Parker,
aka Bob Butts) and a stalwart of
the local law (A.J. Watkins played
by newcomer to the Firehouse,
Wayne Switzer).
Things go topsy turvy when
the grand lady turns up slumped
over on a kitchen cart with a piece
of her own cane rudely stuck in
her back. Nevertheless, the family
happily continues its hunt for her
$100,000 prize and a copy of her
will.
You won't want to miss this
one, directed by Barb Miller.
Southern Fried Murder will con-


tinue this weekend Thursday, Feb.
15, Friday, Feb. 16, and Saturday,
Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. and Sunday,
Feb. 18, at 2 p.m.
Will Cousin Will have a real
thought? Will he know it if he does?
Will the old lady's dodgy lawyer
keep his hands to himself? Will
Sheriff Watkins find out he's
smarter than his handcuffs? Will
Cousin Magnolia succumb to a par-
ticularly nasty attack of the vapors?
And who did do in the old lady?
Find out at the Firehouse Cul-
tural Center, 241 N. Bridge Street,
to find out and to see if you can
solve the crime. Cost is $10 with
reservations and $12 without.
Visa and MasterCard accepted.
For reservations call (863) 675-
2066.

TRIM SOME FAT OFF YOUR MONTHLY BILLS


Perhaps the biggest area where most homeowners would pre-
fer to trim some fat off their monthly bills is with their home-
owner's insurance. While such a thought might seem like false
hope, according to the Insurance Information Institute, there
are a variety of ways homeowners can lessen the blow of their
monthly insurance bill.
Raise your deductible. Raising your deductible is perhaps
the quickest way to lessen your monthly insurance expense.
Deductibles are the amount you have to pay toward a loss
before your insurance company begins to pay. A $500
deductible, the recommended minimum, means you would
have to pay $500 toward damages to your home, and your insur-
ance company would then pay the rest, if those damages were
covered under your policy. A homeowner who chooses to raise
his deductible from $500 to $1,000, however, might save up to
25 percent on his monthly insurance costs.
Make your home more disaster-resistant. Regardless of
where you live, your home is susceptible to some type of disas-
ter. Perhaps your region is prone to earthquakes, tornadoes or
even hailstorms or hurricanes. These days it seems nowhere is
safe from natural disasters. Therefore, making your home more

disaster-resistant is another possible way of cutting your home-
owners insurance costs. Adding storm shutters and roof rein-
forcements might enable you to save you some money. Doing
some inside remodeling with newer appliances can also reduce
the risk of fire or water damage to your home, which should
lead to lower monthly insurance costs.
Install or upgrade a home-security system. While the initial
costs of installing or upgrading a home-security system might
seem costly, some insurance companies make it more than
worth your while, slashing your premiums by as much as 20
percent if certain systems are installed. Typically, an insurance
company will you give you the biggest discount if you install a
fire or burglar alarm system that immediately notifies local
police, fire officials or even a company with a monitoring sys-
tem. The best way to determine if such systems are worth the
investment is to speak with your insurance provider first and
ask about which systems garner the biggest discounts.
Keep a good credit rating. This is sound advice even for peo-
ple who aren't homeowners but would like to be someday.
Though it hasn't come without controversy, many insurance
companies are now looking at credit ratings when determining

prices for homeowners' insurance policies. Having and main-
taining a strong credit history is entirely under your control
and can save you money in the long run.
Combine your policies. In most instances, insurance
providers will charge less if you select them as your homeown-
er and auto insurance provider. Savings can reach as high as 15
percent and make for an easier time when it comes to paying
the monthly bills as well. However, do your research. While
combining coverages usually works in a homeowner's favor,
that's not always the case. Find out how much coverage will cost
using the same company as opposed to two, and choose the less
costly of the two options.
Stay with the same company. Insurance companies typically
reward their longtime customers with strong payment histories
by offering them lower rates. More often than not, this works on
a tier system, where customers who have been with a provider
for X amount of years will get a certain percentage discount.
That percentage typically rises with each period spent with the
company. However, keep an eye on rates from other companies
just to make sure you're getting the best rate possible.
