MLK celebrates commitment
By Patty Brant
As always, the annual Martin
Luther King, Jr. march began
with a prayer Monday morning
as marchers prepared to walk
from Cowboy Way down Mar-
tin Luther King Boulevard, ulti-
mately ending up at Ford Park.
Men, women and children from:
in and outside of the Ford/Sunset
Park community had a beautiful
day for the march which both
commemorated the beginning
of the civil rights movement and
displayed commitment to its con-
"We can't let it end at 'I have a
dream'," Rev. McKenzie told the
crowd assembled under the pavil-
lion at Ford Park after the march.
He added that this generation,
and generations to come, must
take the dream forward, continu-,
ing on the way paved by so many
sacrifices. He explained that this
generation has experienced part
of the dream in increased op-
portunities and equality that now
is often taken for granted. "We
can't let it end," he said, "We
must take his legacy to another
level: It's a different fight today."
LaBelle Mayor Paul Puletti
noted that it was fortunate Dr.
King was a "man of God, a man
of peace" -- a role model for all
who come after him. The story
"could have much harsher, much
meaner,"' if it had not been for
Dr. King's commitment to non-
violence. He told the group how
important it is that each person
stand up against the things they
feel are not right in their com-
munity. He also pointed out that
changes have come about in the
past 40 years. For one thing, more
Ford/Sunset Park students are
graduating from high school that
previously. However, as mayor he
.knows that they need jobs and
homes so they can be productive
in society. Things have gotten bet-
ter, he said, "but they're "still not
right." He encouraged everyone
18 and over to register to vote.
For march organizer Nora
Ned it's about respect. She told
the group we must each learn to
respect ourselves before we can
respect others, then choose to
make a better way and "right will
Sheriff Ronnie Lee talked
about the scourge of crack co-
caine, saying that, if it had been
around during his time, Dr. King
would have fought hard against
it. He asked the community's
help in eliminating it.
Scott Cooper, assistant super-
intendent of schools and a candi-
date for superintendent, remind-
ed everyone that Dr. King's words
-- courage, freedom, equality --
are not just words they are ideas
and that we must all "keep our
eyes on the prize."
Andre Jones holds a newspaper featuring a reproduction
.of a photo of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a large group
of supporters taken in Atlanta in 1965. With him are Nora

ed, you can expect a tree to visibly
decline for about a year before
it begins to really show greening
signs. The tree will probably live for
at least another two-three years till
it eventually dies. Growers need to
control the insect through constant
reinocculation, he said, adding that
young trees more susceptible to
Asian citrus psyllid.
IFAS will provide the service free
to growers for one year. As those in
the industry get better trained in
citrus greening, they won't need
the lab as much, Dr. Rouse pointed
out, but it will still be available to
confirm an infestation and to do
all-important research. The Lake
Alfred facility and DPI will be in-
valuable in verifying data.
Growers and home citrus own-
ers as well should spray their trees
well for insects. It is hoped that
keeping the psyllids in check will
go a long way toward holding
down the disease.
There are. two employees at
the Immokalee site dedicated to
the lab: Diana Schultz, a molecular
geneticist, is the greening lab man-
ager and Orlinda Santiago is the
technician. To process a sample
Ms. Santiago said they need to ex-
tract DNA from a leaf sample and
place it in a machine called a Real
Time Polymerase Chain Reaction
(PCR) machine. This machine al-
lows the technician to actually view
'the iifcrease in DNA as it is ampli-
fied by the machine, so they can
watch the progress as it develops.
The Immokalee lab can process 96
samples at once. With employee
constraints, the lab should be able
to run about 500 samples per week

In response to Ms. Kulpa, the
elected Property Appraiser and
her comments regarding the
Legislature's idea to diminish the
inequity between what taxpayers
are paying on homesteaded and
non-homesteaded properties. Let
us define just exactly what we are
What is homestead property?
As defined by Section 6, Article
VII, Florida State Constitution. It
is...every person who has the le-
gal...title to real estate and main-
tains the permanent resident of
the owner... (it) shall be exempt
from taxation thereon, except as-
sessments for special benefits, (c)
to total of twenty-five thousand
dollars of assessed value and the
exemption for all other levies may
be increased up to an amount not
exceeding ten thousand dollars of
the assessed value...if the owner
(is) 65 or is totally and permanent-
ly disabled... (d)... (special assess-
ments) twenty-five thousand dol-
lars with respect to assessments
for 1982 and each year thereafter...
(The last sentence is considered
obsolete language and these are
your current Constitution Rights)
refer to second homes, private
rented homes, commercial estab-
lishments, and large housing de-
velopments. Now the Legislature
wants to pass on special tax treat-
ment to this larger business, rather
than by an economic tax exemp-
tion by vote of the people, but as a
Constitutional right for 10 years.
As to the idea of diminishing
the inequity and creating unifor-
mity among taxpayers, this sim-
ply means a lowering of the costs
of special assessments for larger
businesses and housing develop-
ments and increasing the costs of
special assessments for the com-
This nation is built on inequity
and nonconformity, yet, all have
inalienable rights. Yes! There is a
difference among income, status,
position and wealth. Now, the
Legislature wants to pass down
to the small businessman and the
homeowner a larger share of the
cost of special assessments for
new developments. To increase
the burden of the common man
(there is more of them) in order
to increase the profits of large cor-
porations. Since when did this re-
public become a country for pref-
erential special interest groups
at the .cost of the common man?
Why give lawmakers the right to
take from the poor and give to the
rich? (Your vote is your voice.)
Remember just who was on
the Property Tax Reform Commit-
tee. Only four members out of 15
were elected representatives (2
from the House and 2 from the
Senate). Whose interests did the
rest of the Committee represent?

By Kristina Kulpa
Hendry County Property
For the past four weeks I have
been explaining the various parts
of Amendment One that you will
be voting on Jan. 29.
This week I will address Non-
Homestead Property Assessment
Cap. The first part will show the
Amendment as it will appear on
,the ballot, after, that I; will have a
couple of examples to help you
understand what this Cap will do
for you if passed.
The non-homestead property
assessment cap limits the assess-
ment increases for specified non
homestead real property to 10
percent each year. Property will be
assessed at just value following an
improvement, as defined by gen-
eral law, and may be assessed at
just value following a change of
ownership or control if provided
by general law. This limitation does
not apply to school district taxes.
This limitation is repealed effective
January 1, 2019, unless renewed
by a vote of the electors in the gen-
eral election held in, 2018.
Further, this revision:
Repeals obsolete language on
the homestead exemption when it
was less than $25,000 and did not
apply uniformly to property taxes
levied by all local governments.
Provides for homestead ex-
emptions to be repealed if a fu-
ture constitutional amendment
provides for assessment of home-
steads "at less than just value"
rather than as currently provided
"at a specified percentage" of just
value '' +''' '' ' ri :)=
Schedules the changes to'
take effect upon approval by the
electors and operate retroactively
to Jan. 1, 2008, if approved in a
special election held on Jan. 29,
2008, or to take effect Jan. 1, 2009,
if approved in the general election
held in November of 2008. The
limitation on annual assessment
increases for specified real prop-
erty shall first apply to the 2009 tax
roll if this revision is approved in
a special election held on January
29, 2008, or shall first apply to the
2010 tax roll if this revision is ap-
proved in the general election held
in November of 2008.
If passed the following is how
the Amendment will apply to you.
of your p
of 17.5 m
will be $
ing up in your area. Streetlights,
city water, sewer, treed medians
and bike paths all cost you, the
property owner, increased taxes
via special assessments. This uni-
formity will cost you more and
the larger property owner less,
Why would people take ad-
vantage of the disadvantaged? Big
business uses lobbyists to speak
and influence our lawmakers.
Why? Is it because the voices of
the people are silent? Our law-
makers need you and your input.
Our soldiers fight and die daily.
Strengthen the home front. If you
don't understand just what is hap-
pening with Amendment One,
then, Vote No. Besides, the law-
makers are working on a flat tax
that may repeal any homestead
exemption. So keep your eyes
open and stand ready!
Copies of the Executive Order
and legislation passed is available
to the general public at the office
of the Caloosa Belle.

of the story
I think it was my Grandfather
who said "If you don't stand for
something, you will fall for ev-
erything." Knowing, as 1 do, the
circumstances of his life, having
emigrated from Ireland at the
heart of the potato famine, with-
out any connections to America,
other than hope and a belief in
God, I will always remember 'his
I have often wondered what
his outlook on life would be in to-
day's partisan, so often mislead-
ing world. As it so often seems
to me, just when I thought there
was no one who cares enough, to
stand up and be heard, along that
person comes. In this case it turns
out that person is none other than
Mr. Harvey of longstanding
fame for his radio show has adroit-
ly summed up life's challenges and
invoked God's will through prayer
as a remedial resolution. It goes
like this: "Heavenly Father, we
come before you today to ask your
forgiveness and to seek your direc-
tion and guidance. We know Your
Word says, "Woe to those who call
evil g6od," but that is exactly what
we have done. We have lost our
spiritual equilibrium and reversed
our values. We have exploited the
poor and called it the lottery. We
have rewarded laziness and called
it welfare. We have killed our
unborn and called it choice. We
have shot abortionists .and called
it justifiable. We have neglected to
discipline our children and called it
building esteem. We have abused
power and called it politics. We
have coveted our neighbor's pos-
sessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with pro-
fanity and pornography and called
it freedom of expression. We have
ridiculed the time-honored val-
ues of our forefathers and called
it enlightenment. Search us, oh
God, and know our hearts today;
cleanse us from every sin and set
us free!" Amen
Featured on his syndicated
radio program under his trade-
mark caption, "The rest of the
story," that program drew the
largest response of any of his
programs over the past 50 years.
Overwhelmed with the response
he issued a statement, "That with
the Lord's help may this prayer
sweep over the nation and whole-
heartedly become our desire, so
that we again can be called "One
nation under God."

Amendment, the bridge and old times

In Barren Park, on Wednes-
days at 7 p.m., members of the
community gather together, seek-
ing other concerned citizens who
value this community. Husband
and wife team, Will and Brenda
brought their friend, a father-son
team bridged the generational
gap in expressing common inter-
ests in the community and Bren-
da welcomed the group and set
the stage for discussion.
First on board was the pro-
posed property amendment.
One gentleman felt that Brenda's
comments missed the mark and
were beyond the comprehension
of most people. "You lost me!"
he said. Brenda said the "words
themselves" are unimportant.
"The key is to get the people
thinking. Politics is sacred to each
citizen," she said. "People have to
decide for themselves. My job is
to give people the facts. The rest
is up to them. This is not just tax
reform. This is,, a revision to the

When I was in Bible College
studying for ministry, I would go
to Vermont in the summer to work
for my brother. He owns a bakery
in the Green Mountain state and
in the early years of his business,
it was expanding rapidly. I deliv-
ered his bread and hard rolls all
over New England, through every
little town and back road street
imaginable. This, of course, was
in the days prior to the map quest,
or GPS navigational systems being
invented. Back then, if you were
lost, or uncertain exactly where
on God's green Earth you were,
you just had to try to figure it out.
Many an afternoon I was lost as a
goose in a Nor'easter.

Discussion turned to a past
era, before rural mail delivery,
when people met at the post of-
fice, and discussed community
issues together, as they waited for
the Post Master to pick up their
mail. Here, the community voiced
their concerns. Citizens also came
together at political rallies, and at-
tended, free of charge, political
picnics, and people came and
met their candidates. Today,. we
have $100 to $500 (ot more) plate
dinners, and the common man is
left out. Lobbyists and special in-
terest groups have stepped in and
over the people.
Age has wisdom and the
question rose, who took care of
the children before Children and
Families came along? Before poli-
tics merged with welfare, the lo-
cal churches reached out to help
the hungry, the homeless and the
children. I believe 'the churches
are still required to feed the poor.
A question surfaced, "Are there
any food banks in town, besides
the Salvation Army?"
Member of the community,
you are invited to share your is-
sues and concerns. Perhaps, there
are people who can help you.
Speakers Corner is here for you,
to network with other members
of the community, to revive the
spirit of community, to give you
a forum to find answers for your
particular situation. Before anoth-
er 9-11 hits, come together; get to
know your neighbors and your
community. There is strength in

Get help at the cancer resource center
By Patty Brant
The American Cancer Society's
new resource center at the United
Way House, 117 Fort Thompson
Ave., has a stock of items for the
recovering cancer patient. Operat-
ed in conjunction with the "Look
Good, Feel Better" program, the
center has the ability to help add a
little zip to a cancer patient's life at
a time when things may look their
A few splashes of color for a
woman suffering the effects of
chemotherapy can mean a lot.
Hair loss is a particular problem
for most women. Just the right hat,
colorful scarf or wig (any color you
prefer -- keep your natural look or
go a little wild!) can bring a little
more focus to a life torn apart by
pain and insecurity. They also have
special bras and prosthetics along
with foot warmers and tote bags
- all free for cancer patients.
The Look Good, Feel Better
program at the center can help lift
sagging spirits. LaBelle cosmetolo-
gist Sissy Pack teaches the ladies
how to use makeup to their best
advantage. Each patient receives a

source Center located at the United Way House.
free makeup package from Estee
Lauder or Clinique so they can

Reach for Recovery volun-
teer Carol Shelton is a survivor of
breast cancer herself so she know
first hand how important these
simple things can be. She can
reach out to other breast cancer
patients offer a shoulder to cry
on or fill in the blanks with impor-
tant information. She's prepared
to be a sympathetic, knowledge-
able friend when a woman needs
one the most, but she's afraid
some cancer patients are missing
out. These programs are here for
people to use.
"I know what it's like, feeling
like nobody cares," Ms. Shelton
said. "There are a lot of women
who don't have their mother or
sister or a friend to go with them to
treatments or just to be with them
-- not so much to talk to them but
to listen to them."
A volunteer with a heart like
Carol Shelton's blossomed when
she heard a comment like this re-
cent one from a patient: "Do you
know what one phone call has
done for me?"
She's hoping patients will keep
her busy -- ring her phone off the
wall! No question is silly, she said,
and if you need a ride to the re-
source center -- just holler! Believe
it or not, it'll be a good time.
She also wants patients to
know that they should call her be-
fore they have surgery. That's the
roughest part when anxiety and
depression can really take a toll,
