By Patty Brant
Look around. The view in the
City of LaBelle has changed con-
siderably in the past 20 years. A
drive down SR 80 had dense oak
and undergrowth along most of
the east side of town. The old one-
room chamber of commerce
building was replaced with a lovely
little building that compliments the
Courthouse; the old gas stations at
SR 80 and Bridge Street and across
from the Courthouse are gone and
the sites cleaned up environmen-
tally. The new Olde Cypress Bank


building and Nationwide insur-
ance building have taken their
places and there's talk of a veterans
memorial on the small park area at
SR 80 and Main St. Just across
Main Street, the beloved old Trad-
ing Post is long gone, replaced by a
strip mall. LaBelle now has a full
array of fast food restaurants and
real estate offices are popping up
like mushrooms.
Devils Garden Road is now
Cowboy Way and has opened up
to commercial establishments
and government buildings.


LaBelle got a new health depart-
ment (moved from the A frame on
Bridge Street). Winn-Dixie moved
from Lee Street to SR 29 and Cow-
boy Way, a Save A Lot is in the
Winn-Dixie's old place and the U-
Save changed directions altogeth-
er- rotating 90 degrees from facing
Bridge Street to the east to facing
SR 80 on the south.
Shelly Johnson was hired as
the city's planner last September.
She has 14 years experience, with
Barroco and Associates. Her job is
to check proposed plans for com-


SCF: It's all about fun


pliance with all city regulations
and the comp plan and to make
sure developers have functional
site plans with no public safety or
traffic circulation issues.
The comprehensive plan is a
long range planning policy to
guide development of the city
which meets the community's
vision of its future. She said
LaBelle has a good plan that heeds
the message from the community
- to preserve the small town
charm LaBelle has always been
noted for, but accommodate


more development with services
and an expanding economy.
The horizon promises lots
more development to come. Wal-
Mart has dibs on property just
west of LaBelle. Many "in the
know" feel that Wal-Mart will be
the trigger that really opens the
flood gates to commercial devel-
opment. Wal-Mart is not a done
deal, and may take several more
years before it comes in.
So, what's happening in the
meantime?
Next week: inside the city limits.


FPL anxiety



surfaces


By Patty Brant
There was some grumbling
in the county commission
chambers Tuesday evening
when discussion was limited
during a one-hour workshop
on Florida Power & Light's pro-
posed Glades Power Plant. The
workshop took place right
before the 5 p.m. regular com-
mission meeting. Plans for the
controversial coal burning
power plant would include two
connection sites in Hendry
County a proposed site in
northern Hendry and an exist-
ing site at the southern end of
the county.
One of the transmission line
routes follows CR 835. Several
Big Cyp.ress Reservation resi-
dents spoke including Rhonda
Roff. Ms. Roff had concerns
about how much electromag-
netic activity children on school
buses would be exposed to


Not a squeamish bone in eight-year-old Emily Higgonbotham! Nope, she puckered right

organization uses funds from the popular race to support its causes. Emily helps catch
the little critters, too, for the SCF event. She is the daughter of Andy and Krista Higgin-
botham. See more SCR photos on Pages 6 and 7.

Youth excel at steer show


By Sonja Crawford
The PeeWee Calf Show and
Market Steer Show, sponsored
by Triangle Chemical Compa-
ny, was held on Tuesday, Feb.,
13, at the LaBelle Rodeo
Grounds. The show consisted
of fifteen pee wee calf
exhibitors and fifteen 4-H
members exhibiting their
steers ranging from 1090
pounds to 1365 pounds.
Mr. Larry Barthle of San
Antonio, Florida, was the offi-
cial judge for the evening. The
steers were judged on
muscling, correctness of fin-
ish, balance, capacity, size, as
well as carcass desirability.
Pee Wee exhibitors Cutter
Cochran, Wyatt Corbitt, Ethan


Cox, Blake Crawford, Brent
Hicks, Taylor McGill, Paul Mor-
rison, Lane Murray, Jordyn
Perkins, Marshall Platt, Adam
Reinbott, Zachary Tanner,
Kinzie Tindall, Windall Tindall,
and Carl Willis had fun exhibit-
ing their calves as well as
answering the judges ques-
tions.
Cody I-ollingsworth cap-
tured Grand Champion with
his 1,288 pound steer. Cody is
a member of the A-I Steer 4-H
Club. Receiving the Reserve
Champion award was Kyle
Davidson who is also a menm-
ber of the A-I Steer 4-H Club.
Kyle's steer weighed in at
1,153 pounds. Cody and Kyle
received the Grand and
Reserved Champion Hendry


County Bred Steer Plaque,
respectively. Both calves were
purchased from A. Duda &
Sons of LaBelle. In order to
achieve the honor of receiving
the Hendry County Bred Grand
and Reserve Champion Steer,
the steer had to be born in
Hendry County or from a pro-
ducer who is a member of the
Hendry County Cattlemens
Association.
After the placing of the
steers came the Showmanship
category. Showmanship is
judged on the ability to exhibit
an animal to its best advan-
tage, as well as the overall care
and training of the animal. The
exhibitors are judged on con-

and the possibility of it causing
certain types of cancer. She
provided the commissioners
with reports on the status of
pertinent regulations on elec-

FP&L representatives
responded that, to date, there is
no proof that electromagnet-
ism causes health problems,
but that the proposed corridor
would not include the road
right-of-way.
Steven Brown from the Con-
servancy sited a Jan. 30 Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-

Program



may ease jail



overcrowding


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
Hoping to relieve the
expense of housing inmates at
the county jail, Judge Sloan's
proposal to implement a pro-
bationary program has drawn
criticism from at least one per-
son who thinks it's a step in the
wrong direction.
Kirk Jameson, who spoke
out about the issue during the
Feb. 13 Hendry County Board
of Commissioners meeting,
said the plan has several faults
that could keep it from working
how it should.
At the heart of the issue,
Judge Sloan said, is the sky-
rocketing expense of keeping
an inmate incarcerated. With


each inmate costing the county
an estimated $18,200 per year,
the judge said a program to
closely monitor the would-be
inmates could help the county
realize savings.
The judge is proposing an
intensive supervisory program
that would release inmates
until their trial date.
The program would be
funded partly by fees charged
to the inmates, the rest paid for
by taxes.
Judge Sloan said not all
inmates would be eligible for
release he is continuing to set
the parameters for who would
and would not qualify for
release and even then, the

concerns about plans to use sur-

S added that a resolution of support
for the project from Hendry
County would be "premature."
Later, at the regular commis-
' sion meeting, the board agreed
that the proposed lines meet the
county's general zoning ordi-
nances although there are several
issues with airport criteria. Those
issues can be addressed later. The
county was required to submit the
paperwork by March 12. It does
not bind the county to approving
:j the power company's plan.

intensive system of case manage-
ment would carefully monitor all
inmates on release.
"Those defendants will have to
be in constant contact with case
management personnel," the
judge said in a telephone inter-
view last week.
But Judge Sloan understands
that the program would not solve
the problem, but help to alleviate
some of the burden of the prison
system. The county stands to save
more than $500,000 if the pro-
gram is adopted by county com-
missioners, the judge said.
Some, however, don't think
releasing inmates is a viable solu-
tion.
Mr. Jameson argued that the
local prison is more directly
affected by the backlog of cases
that are the result of not having
enough judges and state attor-
neys to handle the proceedings.
Judge Sloan, meanwhile,
agrees.
"I totally agree with Mr. Jame-
son that we don't have enough
judges and state attorneys," said
the judge, "but that is not up to
me to decide."
Regarding having inmates pay
for the services of the proposed
program, Mr. Jameson who
potentially stands to lose some of
his bail bondsman business to
inmates opting for the judge's
proposal doesn't see that hap-
pening.
"Most of the time, the defen-
dant can't even afford the bond,"

appearance will assist the
exhibitor in being successful.

manship buckle was Erin Zim-
merly with Miranda Steed in
second place receiving a trophy.
Kyle Franco took first place in
the Junior Showmanship divi-


Mr. Jameson said. "What makes
the judge think they can afford
this service?"
Due to the nature of the
inmates having to wait to find out
whether the judge will let them
take advantage of the program,
most inmates will most likely still
post bond before he ever sees
them, the judge said. Instead, the
program may end up helping
people who don't have the means
to post bond "but don't need to
be sitting in jail, taking the space
of a more dangerous individual,"
the judge said.
Judge Sloan said he took two
days working closely with staff to
pore over detailed information
regarding the number of inmates
in jail for first-, second- and third-
degree felonies, and misde-
meanors, in an effort to find a
long-term solution to the issue.
Mr. Jameson finds fault in that.
"All the time he spent working
on this program, he could have
been spending it adjudicating
court cases and saving the county
money," Mr. Jameson told com-
missioners.
County Attorney Mark Lapp,
currently serving as interim coun-
ty administrator, is expected to
meet with Judge Sloan to discuss
the issue. The proposal is expect-
ed to be brought back to county
commissioners for final consider-
ation at a future meeting.
In any event, the judge said he
simply wanted to help.
"This is something I did to help
the county and Sheriff Depart-
ment to solve the problem,"
Judge Sloan said. "This will not
affect my job whether the board

not. I simply wanted to help since

Letters to the Editor


Miss LHS band?
For those of you who won
dered why the musicians o
LaBelle High School were not oi
stage Saturday during th'
Swamp Cabbage Festival, at
explanation might be in order.
As the music director a
LaBelle Middle School, I provide
ed the Swamp Cabbage Festiva
with two bands for the parade
and a stage show in the par]
every year for eighteen years
After two years of retirement,
returned to LaBelle to teacl
music at the High School, am
have started a guitar program
with 45 players, a jazz band an
a choir.
In January we wer'
approached by the Swamp Cab
bage Festival to perform on th
stage. We ordered outfits, music
and equipment and were
preparing a show. Two week
before the festival I contacted
them to inquire as to our time
slot, and was told that there was
n't time to include the LHS music
cians. When pressured, the:
offered a 15 minute slot, whicl
we declined. 15 minutes ii
which to set up, perform an
tear down wouldn't have left us
time to perform a single song.
The musicians -of LaBelli
High School are dedicated, tal
ented, enthusiastic young mei
and women. I can only hope tha
you will get a chance to hea
them someday.
Sincerely,
Dr. Jeff Moor

Take hard look
at coal burning plant
February 26, 2007
Dear Editor:
The permitting process an'
activities behind FP&L's prc
posed coal fired Glades Powe
Park needs to see the light of da
and involve the citizens c
Glades and Hendry counties
Too much has been done in th
shadows. We need to ask som
pointed questions of the Glade
Co. Board of Commissioner
and not simply request, bu
demand answers. We om:
Donna Storter from any implica
tion since she did not join th
Glades Board until after plans fc
the power plant were underway
So, here you are Mssrs. Jones
Beck, Echols and Giesler:
Why did you and the local
planning agency amend the lan
development regulation to grar
the permitted use of a power


plant on land designated agricul-
tural? Why did you do this with
Sno public hearing?
f Why were FP&L's represen-
n tatives allowed to meet secretly
e and privately with individual
" board members while all this
was going on? Did any of you
it remotely consider that your
- actions on a matter of this mag-
I1 nitude might take on the appear-
e ance of impropriety?
k We were in attendance at
3. the informational board meeting
I in Moore Haven on the 20th.
h This was hardly an unbiased
d presentation. The experts on air
n emissions, water use and eco-
dlogical impact are all employed
by Older Associates, the com-
e pany that is facilitating FP&L's
- permitting process. The toxicol-
e ogist is under contract with
, FP&L. The presenter who
e praised the technological virtues
s of the coal plant also made the
d same pitch to the St. Lucie Co.
e commissioners last year. They
3- didn't buy it and unanimously
'- turned down FP&L's request. Do
Y you ever wonder why? Did you
h ever ask? You did not. Mr. Jones'
n terse reply to their letter to you
d urging caution in this matter sug-
s gested they mind their own busi-
ness. Even Henry Fishkind's eco-
e nomic analysis raised more
- questions than it answered. But
n then questions had to be pre-
at submitted And further questions
r on sometimes ambiguous
answers were not permitted.
In short, gentlemen, we feel
e that you are, for whatever rea-
son, prematurely rushing to
bring this potentially hazardous
coal plant to Glades Co. It's time
to step back, be prudent and
convene a panel of knowledge-
able people to carefully analyze
d this with all the impartiality that
)- good science has to offer. It is
;r important that they not be in the
y employ of or beholden to FP&L
)f in any way. Your taking FP&L's
;. "word for it" would be akin to
e chickens consulting only with
e the fox concerning henhouse
s security and forgoing a second
s opinion. The ecological, health
it and economic impact to our
it counties and to the Everglades
i- will be huge and, we are willing
e to bet, negative. Consideration
)r of an undertaking of this magni-
y. tude deserves and requires your
s, caution and informed objectivi-
ty. Your constituencies deserve
al no less.
d Sincerely,
it Bruce & Michelle Steinfeldt

Glades Power Park


Discussion: I just finished
reading about some people that
are opposed to the Glades Coun-
ty Power Park that has been pro-
posed by FP&L. I do not want to
defend FP&L but I would like to
make some comments.
First I would like to say that
any "forward looking" statement
made by FP&L is only valid on the
date that the statement was
made. That is taken from their
published disclaimer on the web
site that talks about the Glades
Power Park. That is their own
words. That tells me that you can
not believe any thing they say.
That means they are only interest-
ed in their stockholders and their
customers. That means to me
that they do not care about the
communities they impact, or at
least they do not care as much
about them.
Second I would like to put a lit-
tle perspective on the mercury
problem. I again do not wish to
defend mercury. It is bad. It has a
bad track record and a bad repu-
tation. It is dangerous and haz-
ardous when not handled prop-
erly. I have been involved in a
limited way with mercury since I
have been working. That is or
was over forty years. When I first
started working back in the
1960's 1 was in a research labora-
tory with a highly respected inter-
national chemical company. One
of the projects I was involved
with was trying to find a substi-
tute for the mercurial com-
pounds that the coatings industry
uses for mold, mildew and can
stability. Consequently I learned
very early on about the hazards of
mercury. I am also one of the
people that said I would continue
to use mercury until a satisfactory
replacement was found. It took
another fifteen years or so but
replacements were discovered.
Until the early 1990's every
paint company in the entire Unit-
ed States used mercury. To give
you an idea of just how much
mercury was used, here are
some numbers and examples.
You can do the math, if you are at
all interested. The average paint
company put about a pound of
mercury into every one hundred
gallons of paint that they pro-
duced. Some companies, espe-
cially in the Sun Belt states, used
up to three pounds of mercury in
every one hundred gallons of
paint because of the mildew
problems in the Sun Belt. Florida
had an even bigger problem so
additional preservative was sold
at the cash register so the con-
sumer could add an additional
dose for added protection. That
amount in some cases equaled a
probable nine pounds per one
hundred gallon total. That is a
conservative number. A small to
medium sized paint company
producing about 500,000 gallons
of paint a year used about 5,000
pounds of mercury in a year. That
compound was about 60% mer-
cury. It was a phenyl, methyl or
ethyl oleate or acetate compound
of mercury. It was one of the
more water dispersible com-
pounds of mercury. It had to have
some solubility in water because
it had to "leach out" in order to be
effective in controlling mildew.
Back in the 1970's there were
over one million gallons of paint
sold in Lee County every year.
(Do the math). In the Orlando
area there were about ten to
eleven million gallons of paint
sold in a year. (Do the math).
Chalking and mildew were the
major problems in Florida in the
1970's. Every year you would go
and pressure wash your house to
remove the mildew. In Orlando,
where did all that run off go? Was
it into the storm drains and into
the river and finally into the Big 0?
Look at a map and you tell me. I
wonder where all that mercury
went?
The coatings industry had a
partner in crime. It was called the
agricultural industry. The exact
same compounds were used to
prevent the black mold and fun-
gus on citrus. The cattlemen dug
"dipping pits" to run the cattle
into with the same compounds to
control the pests on the cattle.
Those uses for mercury were dis-
continued in the early 1990's.
Until that time coal burning was a
minor contributor of mercury to
the environment. In fact the coal
industry has over the years dwin-
dled in use. When I was a kid
every home had a coal stove or
heater. There were steam engines
instead of electric and diesel
engines. Cleaner coal and lower
sulfur coal is being utilized.


Scrubbers are being incorporat-
ed. The amount of mercury con-
tributed to the environment from
coal is lower than it has ever
been. I am not defending coal. I
am not defending FP&L. I am

putting things into perspective.
FP&L says they will be contribut-
ing only 200 pounds of mercury
to the environment in a year.
Since that statement is a "forward
looking" statement you know
what you can do with it. Put it
where the sun don't shine. That is
all it is worth. If in fact it is only
200 pounds per year, that amount
is minuscule compared to what


the coatings and the agricultural
industries contributed. And that
was the Best Available Technolo-
gy (BAT) in those days. And it was
legal.
In reality that new C&D landfill
that has been permitted to open
in Glades County is a much more
serious mercury hazard than the
FP&L Power Park. It will be taking
around fifteen hundred tons of
C&D trash every day. What is
C&D? It is construction and dem-
olition. How many new homes
are being taken down and put
into the land fill? I would guess
not too many. How many old
buildings are being taken down
and how many buildings are
being renovated that are more
than ten or fifteen years old? I
would guess a whole lot. The
average house takes about thirty
five gallons of paint to cover
inside and out. If only one coat of
paint was applied to each of
these buildings that are being
torn down or renovated a very
conservative amount of about
one pound of mercury is going
into the landfill for each house. If
only one house per day is put into
the landfill that is about 500 to
1000 pounds of mercury every
year into that landfill. And that is
the more water soluble mercury
compounds. That is not counting
the drywall mud that typically
used three times the amount of
mercury as the paint did. That is
not counting the electric switches
that have mercury in them. That
is not counting the other sources
of mercury. That is only one
house per day. How much mer-
cury is really going into that land-
fill? On the other hand Who
cares? No one did at the time it
was permitted. But Glades Coun-
ty is going to get a whopping sixty
thousand dollars a year for allow-
ing it to happen and a couple
other people are going to make a
ton of money. And Lee County
residents thank Glades County for
taking their trash.
Some of my complaints are
the fact that I have been told by
the environmentalists that the
Chinese cars are more fuel-effi-
cient than the U. S. cars. Well if
that is so show me one. They are
not allowed in the U. S. because
they do not meet the air quality
standards. Besides that if they are
as cheap as every other piece of
crap that China makes they beak
down and do not work half as
good as something made in the
United States. China produced
more cars in 2005 than the United
States produced.
I read where someone just
saved one hundred dollars per
month on the electric bill by con-
serving. Does that mean if we. all
save one hundred dollars that we
do not need more electricity or
power plants to be built in Flori-
da? Or does that just mean that
We can sacrifice so that more
immigrants can migrate into
Florida so that we need more
power any how? I venture to say
that there are a lot of homes in
Glades County that will not have
to pay an electric bill or FP&L will
pay those that do not use one
hundred dollars worth of electric-
ity in a month. For some one to
be able to save one hundred dol-
lars a month they must be living
high on the hog as compared to
the average Glades County resi-
dent. When I see an environmen-
talist disconnecting the power
lines going to their homes, riding
bicycles and walking and using
other sources for power I will lis-
ten a little closer to them. It is
after all the environmentalists
that have forced all the regula-
tions on industry so that now
China makes everything that we
used to make. It is after all the
regulations that have forced our
economy off shore to countries
that do not have regulations.
How many more people do they
,wish it put out of a job? Saving
one hundred dollars a month on
electricity sounds like they are
alive and well.
There are two sides on this
problem and I do not have a
problem with either way our
county commissioners go on this
one. I do not think FP&L is think-
ing about the residents of Glades
County. I think that FP&L should
make some iron clad commit-
ments to the Glades County resi-
dents that do not shrink and dis-
appear over time. I think that
Glades County should get a per-
centage from any power pro-
duced now and in the future that
is not a sliding or variable scale. I
think new really new technolo-


gy should be used and not just
new to FP&L technology should
they be successful in building a
new plant and that is anywhere
they build a new plant. The envi-
ronmentalists have some good
ideas but I want to see them prac-
tice what they preach in other
countries as well as ours. They
have cost us too much so far. Get
them to bring back out manufac-
turing base and I will listen a little
better. These are just a few of my
opinions and comments.
Respectfully,
Fran Koebert, Retired, Taxpayer,
Voter, U. S. Citizen thatcan read,

Thank You


Phillip's Road crew
To the volunteer road crew
working on Phillip's Road this
past Saturday, February 17th! You
are greatly appreciated! Much
progress was made in smoothing
the rough spots, and clearing
brush away from the roadway. As
all can see there's much more to
be done, and it's our goal to get
the road back into condition so
that the school bus will be
allowed to run as it did in the
past. That goal includes resur-
facing the entire road, if we can
gather the support to accomplish
this.
Our next road committee
meeting is tentatively scheduled
for Saturday, March 17, 6:30 p.m.
on Buddy Prophet's porch. All res-
idents are welcome and all sup-
port is appreciated. Please come
out and help us improve our road.
If you are interested, please call:


Buddy Prophet at 863-675-8809;
Linda or Dana Smith at 863-612-
0033; or Tanya or Jimmy Fussell at
863-674-0917.
Thanks again.

What would you change about Swamp Cabbage? Do you
have any suggestions on where to relocate the park fes-
tivities because of congestion?

S Jim Sabella said, "I don't
think it needs to be moved
anywhere. It's a festival so
it's going to be crowded. I
don't think LaBelle has any
S"' other area that would be as
j "'1.j scenic, historical or as mem-
S" orable as the park. Although
it might be nice to disperse
some of the festivities to
.. ; other areas and spread them
out throughout LaBelle so
it's not quite so crowded."


Anquiette Goree said, "They
should make the parade more
interesting such as putting
more work into the floats and
making the band more lively.
There should be more activi-
ties at the park like a
dance/step team and more
games for the little kids to
play like a truck race."


Dorothy Johnson said, "I
would relocate the park fes-
tivities to the area beside
LES (the recreation land)
because I would like to see
Swamp Cabbage expand
and get larger for the fami-
lies because there's not
enough space downtown.
We are really boxed in at the
park. We really need a lot
more room. That way the
armadillo races would have
more room and everyone
could enjoy the festivities a little better. I would add more
activities for the kids such as potato sack races, a base-
ball tournament, bounce houses, a talent show and picnic
tables for families to sit down and enjoy everything."

Eddie Nieves said, "I would
move the festivities to the
rodeo grounds where there
is more space. I would also
add a better variety of -
music such as rock n roll ., -
instead of just having coun-
try music. I love the food
but I would add a couple
more booths so the lines
are shorter. Maybe three or
four booths with gator tail."


Amber Bryant said, "We
need better parking. I would
change the location so it's
not so congested in the
middle of town. We also
need more vendors so the
lines are shorter."

This really cool rocket bike was probably the hit of the Full
Throttle Bike Show Sunday. Terry Short of Fort Myers, of
Vongraph Zepplein, built futuristic bike for an upcoming
movie called Akira Bike Wars, which is due to start pro-
duction in California by Paramount and Sony in a couple
weeks. Built on an old Honda chassis with "machine
guns," rocket pads, oxygen and nitrous systems and lots
of other movieland extras, it took him 13 months to com-
plete. Terry has been doing this type of work for 40 years,
manufacturing some 35 props for movies out of all kinds
of scrap. This bike is destined to be blown up in the real
action/animation thriller but that's okay, Terry says, "as
long as they send the check."


The overall female winner was Lindsey Ulrich, age 28, from
Lehigh Acres (who also won last year) with a time of 18:25.

Sheriff Stuart Whiddon of the
Glades County Sheriff's Office has
authorized the release of the fol-
lowing information.
On February 20, at approxi-
mately 11:30 a.m., a patrol deputy
was conducting security checks
within the Port Labelle area of
Glades County which is located on
the southern edge of Glades
County along SR80. While the
deputy was conducting his
checks, he located a residence at
4880 Warm Court to which, the
deputy noticed a strong odor of
marijuana coming from within
the residence.
The deputy made contact with
the Criminal Investigations Divi-
sion and relayed his findings. The
Criminal Investigations Division
began their investigation which
led to obtaining a search warrant
for the residence at 4880 Warm
Court. Upon serving the search
warrant at the residence, two sub-
jects were located inside along
with 9 grown marijuana plants
and approximately 50 pounds of


already processed marijuana.
Both subjects were arrested at the
residence and were identified as
Mercedes Alpiza Cabrera, age 38
and Gilberto Henandez Lopez,
age 36. Both subjects were
charged with cultivation of mari-
juana and trafficking of marijuana.
While the Detectives were
working on the marijuana grow
house at 4880 Warm Court, they
located a second possible mari-
juana grow house within the
same area at 16880 Saturn Circle.
Upon searching the residence,
detectives located 65 marijuana
plants growing inside. The resi-
dence was occupied by Osualdo
Jorge, age 45. He too was also
arrested and charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana and possession
of marijuana.
All three subjects were trans-
ported to the Glades County Jail. If
you have any questions concern-
ing these two cases please con-
tact, Detective Sergeant Steve Har-
ris of the Glades County Sheriffs
Office.

On Wednesday, Feb. 14, the 4-
H/FFA Market Swine Show was
sponsored by Diamond R Fertiliz-
er. The Swine Ultrasound Screen-
ing was sponsored by Commis-
sioner W. T. Bill Maddox. The
show consisted of 82 swine
exhibitors.
The official judge of the
evening was Mr. Don Strickland
of Sarasota. The hogs were
judged on muscling, trimness,
length of body, spring to the rib,
design, productive type, correct-
ness of finish and expected car-
cass desirability.

H Club member Jacy Sealey.
Jacy's hog weighed 294 pounds.

unteer leader is Doreen Backes.

its best advantage, as well as the
overall care and training of the
animal. The exhibitors are
judged on control, presentation

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
Hang on to those large, clear-
plastic jars from animal crackers,
pretzels and other snacks-the kind
you buy in warehouse stores.
They make good storage for small
toys, doll accessories and Legos.
To keep track of stuff on your
pantry shelf group foods by color.
All green foods in one place, all
red in another, etc. It may seem to
make no sense to have cherries
and ketchup on the same shelf
but it's a no-brainer to think red.
Keep all plastic container lids ver-


tically in a
shoe box.
The bowls
will usually
nest inside
each other
neatly. While
you're at it take a permanent
marker and number all bowls and
lids that match with the same
number. Throw all others out.
The margarine and cool whip
tubs you save for others to take
stuff home can be put in a plastic
bag and stored in the garage or
shed.


Tennis, Anyone?

With the growing interest in The clinics will be held in
tennis in Western Hendry County, LaBelle. If you are interested in
a beginning tennis clinic for adult participating in these clinics,
ladies and a clinic for kids are in please contact Sarah Catala at
the works. 673-0697 or 674-1104.

Clay Timpner is a laid back,
small town, somewhat shy guy.
He doesn't like his picture taken,
and is not cocky as one might
assume. It was even difficult to
get a picture of him looking at
the camera. Drafted in the fourth
round of his junior year of col-
lege, he plays baseball for the
Fresno Grizzlies, a triple A minor
league team of the San Francisco
Giants. One would never know
from talking to him that he is
often in the presence of some
living legends such as Willie
Mayes, Ken Griffy Jr. and Barry
Bonds.
When asked how it was to be
in the presence of so many
greats he said that at first he was
really intimidated and in awe,
but now he's a little more
relaxed and realizes they're just
one of the guys doing their job,
although he never forgets how
lucky he is to be there playing
with them.
Clay is only 23-years-old and
has played baseball for 19 years,
since he was four years old.
. He has accomplished a lot in
his few years. He is in a league
with guys who are thirty and
have families.
His ultimate goal like many
other minor leaguers trying to
make it is to play in the big
leagues of course, for at least ten
years and he might just do it too.
With an impressive stat list, the
likelihood that he'll make it is
quite a possibility. He is an out-
fielder but is a very strong batter
as well.
His baseball hero list consists
of outfield players such as Ken
Griffey Jr. and Kenny Lofton.
He says that his strongest
attribute is playing the game
hard-the way it's supposed to be
played and that his strongest
asset to the team is defense such
as diving for catches.
He says that he plans on play-
ing as long as he can stay
healthy and his body will let
him.
After he is done with baseball
he says that he'll probably finish
up his degree in Liberal Studies
and either open a business of
some kind or pursue a career in
teaching.
He said the best thing about
playing baseball for a living is
doing what he's always
dreamed of. He said the worst
thing about it is traveling and
going to small towns and staying
in bad hotels and the long bus
rides. In one season they play
142 regular season games so it is
quite intensive so there isn't
much time to relax.
In the off season, Clay is
home from September-February
so while he's home he helps out
the LHS Baseball team while get-
ting in his off-season workout.
Clay was drafted his junior
year of college and wasn't going
to turn it down, so he never got
to finish his degree. He figured
he could always finish his
degree, but he wouldn't always
have the chance to play major
league baseball.
Wise beyond his years, Clay
said that although playing base-
ball is his job, he has .learned


that it is a game and he needs to
enjoy it while it lasts. While Clay
is a non-roster invitee, which
means he is not on the 40 man
roster, he hopes to continue
playing in the triple A league or
possibly go to the majors this
year.
Clay is like a lot of guys his
age. In his off time he likes to do
outdoor stuff such as fishing and
to the beach. He also likes to
travel and just relax.
When asked who his men-
tors are he said that he looks up
to his older brother Marcus
because he feels that he some-
what paved the way for him. He
said that he watched Marcus
work hard and knew that if he
worked hard it would eventually
pay off and be rewarding.
Clay goes to Spring Training
in Scottsdale, AZ. Feb. 19
through the beginning of April.
Clay said that he just goes out
and tries to have fun. He said his
parents never pushed him to
play baseball but they always
supported him and told him if he
was going to do it, he needed to
give 100 percent and that he has.

Brought to you by

Here's a first in college basketball and
probably any other sport as well. On the
same day in December of 2006, the two
coaching sons of one legendary coach I
faced off against the two coaching sons
of another. John Thompson Jr. (son of
John Sr.) led his Georgetown squad
against the Oral Roberts team coached
by Scott Sutton (son of Eddie).
Georgetown won 73-58. Later in the
evening, the Suttons got even, as
Oklahoma State coach Sean Sutton -
Eddie's other son guided his Cowboys
to a 75-56 victory over the Ball State
squad coached by Ronny Thompson -
John's other son.

Wayne Gretzky, Dominik Hasek and
Phil Esposito are three legends of hock-
ey. But journeyman Yanic Perreault? In
one respect, yes. Entering the 2006-07
season; these four are the only players in
NHL history to lead the league in a key
statistical category for at least six con- I
secutive seasons. the first three are fair-I
ly easy to identify: Gretzky in points, I
Esposito in goals, Hasek in. save per- I
centage among goalies. But what about I
Perreault? Any guesses? The veteran I
center led the NHL in face offs won for
six straight seasons from 2000-011
through 2005-06.
* *
Now here's a man who had faith in
his son's athletic ability. In the mid-
1990s, an English father named Garry
Nichols placed a bet of 150 pounds
(about $230) that his son, Ricky, would
become a professional soccer player.
Sure enough, in 2006 Ricky was signed
by West Bromwich Albion. If Ricky
plays for a title two years in a row and is
selected for the national team before his

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog."
Most citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe
their public officials at work, or to determine how well public insti-
tutions are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs"
than "watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog"
role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a
courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your
editor.
