Employee of the Year

By Patty Brant a r
Caloosa Belle
On Jan.31 the Hendry C6un-
ty School District took time out
to recognize a group of people
whose support is vital to the
business of education. Non-
instructional personnel eligible
for this award make up about
40 percent of the school dis-
trict's employees. The jobs they
do range from being the "face"
of each school first presented
to the public to the mechanics
who are responsible not only
for keeping the buses running
but for the safety of each child
who rides them. No matter
what the job, this dedicated
group of employees makes*
sure all the support systems for ,
teachers, administrators and ,
ultimately the students are
"go." Assistant Superintendent Hendry County School District Employee of the Year for
of Schools Scott Cooper drew 2008 Pat McGill received her award from Assistant Super-
intendent of Schools Scott Cooper at the Jan. 31 award

Cyclist dies




in crash


A bicyclist died after being
struck by a car on Saturday,
Feb. 2, in LaBelle. He was the
first traffic fatality in Hendry
County for 2008.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, Roberto
Estrada, age unknown, was rid-
ing a Roadmaster bicycle east-
bound on Bryan Avenue ahead
of a 1993 Ford sedan driven by
Rosa Carlene Whidden, age 61,
of LaBelle at 10:51 a.m. Feb.
2. The report indicates that
Ms. Whidden crossed into the
westbound lane of Bryan Ave-
nue when suddenly Mr. Estrada


also entered the westbound
lane ahead of her vehicle.
The right front of Ms. Whid-
den's vehicle struck the rear
wheel of the bicycle in the
westbound lane. Impact from
the collision propelled the bi-
cycle and Mr. Estrada onto the
right side of Ms. Whidden's
windshield. Ms. Whidden was
not injured in the mishap.
Mr. Estrada was transported
to Lee Memorial Hospital in
stable/critical condition, but
passed away there at 4:25 p.m.
that afternoon.


Bluegrass



comes to SCF


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
This year's top entertain-
ers for the Swamp Cabbage
Festival will be the Steep Can-
on Rangers. Look for them to
display their unique brand of
bluegrass music at the gazebo
Saturday after the parade.
The Steep Canyon 'Rang-
ers have carved out a special
spot in the world of bluegrass
music, creating a sound that
looks forward and backwards
at the same time. First formed
in the stairwells and kitchens
of Chapel Hill, NC,, the Rang-
ers arrive from varied musical
backgrounds. On stage and in


.the studio, Woody Platt (gui-
tar, lead vocals), Mike Guggino
(mandolin, vocals), Charles
Humphrey (upright bass),
Nicky Sanders (fiddle) and
Graham Sharp (banjo, vocals)
have perfected their ensemble
approach using fierce dynam-
ics and seamless' harmonies.
The Rangers base their sound
around a stunning catalogue
of original songs, drawing on
the sounds of early bluegrass,
honky tonk and blues.
In 2006 the International
Bluegrass Music Association
voted Steep Canyon Rangers
the Emerging Artist of the Year.

Festival

The past year also saw the title
track "One Dime at a Time" rise
to #1 on Bluegrass Unlimited's
National Bluegrass Survey. In
2006, the Grand Ole Opry wel-
comed the Rangers for a debut
performance. They rang in 2008
on the former Grand Ole Opry
stage at the Ryman Auditorium
with the Del McCoury Band, as
well as guests Jon Fishman
(Phish), Drew Emmitt and Vince
Herman (Leftover Salmon), and
songwriter and producer Ronnie
Bowman. On the heels of their re-
cent success comes a new release
"Lovin' Pretty Women" produced
by bluegrass heavyweight Ron-
nie Bowman and engineered by
guitarist Wyatt Rice, affirming the
band's arrival at the highest circle
of acoustic music.

attention to the process of choos-
ing the Employee of the Year, say-
ing it's a unique and painstaking
process with input from through-
out the school system.
Director of Human Resourc-
es Steve Stinnett opened the
luncheon event at the Dallas
Townsend Ag Center in LaBelle.
School board members Sally
Berg and Pat Langford presented
the individual school or depart-
ment awards. Assistant Superin-
tendent of Schools Scott Cooper
presented the Employee of the
Year Award, which went to Pat
McGill, a 30-year employee of
Hendry County School District.
She has spent all that time in
elementary schools LaBelle
Elementary, LaBelle Intermedi-
ate School, Country Oaks and
now Upthegrove Elementary. Pat
started working for the school
district in 1978 as an aide for the
basic program with now Super-
intendent of Schools Tom Conner
at LaBelle Elementary School. In
August 1982 she was appointed
to clerk/typist at LES. During that
school year, LES was divided into
two schools and Pat moved to
what was then called LaBelle In-
termediate School with Principal
Mike Gasz. She remained there
when LIS became Country Oaks
Elementary first under Mr. Gasz
then Principal Mike Gann.
In. 2003-04 Edward Upthe-
grove Elementary School opened
and she transferred there with
Mr. Gann and currently works
with Principal Larry Luckey. Ev-
eryone walking into the office
at UES knows Pat she's always
been there to greet everyone, Mr.
Cooper said, adding that since
1978, she has trained three prin-
cipals. Mr. Luckey said his move
to UES was the easiest transition
he's ever made, due in large part
to Pat McGill's assistance and
support. She wears of lots of
hats and has lots of energy, he
said, both needed at the county's
smallest school.
"I love working with the
school system," an emotional Pat
said, "it's a privilege to work with
everybody."
Individually, awards went to:
Elizabeth Williams LaBelle
High School guidance registrar;
Kathleen Gilbertson La-
Belle Middle School para profes-
sional;
Kim Kemp Country Oaks El-

Members of VFW 10100 had a grand time separating customers at the lounge from a
little extra money recently but the show was worth every penny to the customers! Four
members served as bartenders for a night wearing outlandish costumes -- including a kilt.
Customers ponied up a little extra for the show and the post matched their donations for a
total of $1,000. It was all Canteen Manager Robin Thompson's idea, and it worked beauti-
fully. Good fun for a good cause helping to build a new Veterans Park across from the
Courthouse. Pictured from left: American Legion Post 130 Commander Bill Davis, VFW

24-HOUR PET EMERGENCIES: Our best friend died on Dec. 25
at 2:30 p.m. She was a 7-year-old hound, and had a personality that
was unlike any other dog we have ever had. We have had quite a few
and still do. It did not have to happen. The reason she died was simply
that we could not find a vet. Calls were made and the response was
"we can make her comfortable." She needed a surgeon. LaBelle is
growing and has a large population of "snowbirds" who, I'm sure,
would have a problem as we did finding help in Fort Myers. Why is
there only after hours emergency services for large animals? If a horse
is in trouble an answering service relays a message to a vet who calls
back and comes to you. We need an emergency vet somewhere in La-
Belle where you can call and meet a vet on holidays, after 5 p.m. This
is a must and important with all the pets here that may die without
fast treatment not a two hour drive to Fort Myers. Anyway, in loving
memory of Freckles...

TARP YOUR TRASH: People of Ortona, are you aware that the law
requires all yard waste to be tarped before it is hauled to the dump? I
think this also applies to trash. I for one am sick of seeing yard waste
and papers fly out of your trucks.

Letters to the Editor


The Blame Game
A few weeks back I saw an
anonymous quotation that I think
summarily helps in attempting to
make any sense of the Primary
election process that is now en-
tering it's second decade, or is
it just the ninth year of the first?
Oh well, regardless, the quota-
tion went like this. "Experience is
a wonderful thing: it enables you
to recognize a mistake every time
you repeat it."
As the beauty pageant posing
as an electoral process contin-
ues to snake it's way across the
continent and our consciences,
I was wondering how many of
us would accept some nameless
delegate choosing the name of
their child? What about a name-
less delegate picking the house,
car, or wife that they were going
to spend the rest of their life in or
with? If, as it is with me, you take
exception to these issues of per-
sonal privilege being delegated to
strangers, then how do you feel
about unknown delegates choos-
ing your next president?
It seems to me after a quick re-
view of the past seven years that
it actually does make a difference
who becomes president. The
complete domination of partisan
politics and loyalty has become
so dominant that party members,
in conjunction with the media,
will defend the indefensible, ra-
tionalize the irrational and honor
the dishonorable.
Corruption, at all levels, has
become blatant, public policy.
Well on its way to it's own demise
in order to enrich special interest
groups, short and long term fi-
nancial interests, while earmarks
routinely continue to point the
way to the "bridge to nowhere."
Much has been made of the
purported lies of the current ad-
ministration, fueling the irrecon-
cilable partisan politics in place
of non-partisan compromise in
making a mockery of the Con-
gressional conduction of the
country's needs.
Much has been said about
how the previous administration
produced a balanced budget and
a surplus, but only a casual review
of the supporting facts does not
support this as factual. Not when
the fact that if Social Security and
the development of the unsus-
tainable, illegitimate technology
bubble had been included in the
"Voodoo" budgetary accounting
process and procedures.
Prior administrations have had
multiple opportunities to give
more than lip service and superfi-
cial pandering to special interests
in formulating and implementing
a valid energy policy. Adding in-
sult to injury, they caved in to the
Hollywood envirocrats and al-
lowed the nuclear power option
to be removed from any positive
conclusion.
In all of our past discretion-
ary approaches to managing
major issues impacting health,
safety, security and education, a
consensus has always ultimately
been reached which if not totally
acceptable allowed the process
to move forward. Never before,
until now, has scientific programs
not been funded and promoted,
as superstition, hatred and funda-
mentalism have been embraced
and supported. Concurrently this
has led to a diminishing pursuit of
enlightenment within the scope
of feasibility.
There is no point in assigning
blame unless your only purpose


is to try and legitimize that any
one person can be held totally
responsible. By the same point
of reasoning, no one person can
possibly be expected to single-
handedly restore the badly deteri-
orating fabric of our society. How-
ever, we do through the electoral
process, with all it's symbolism of
national sentiment, have the op-
portunity to begin the restoration
process.
Through our choice of Presi-
dent and Congressional leaders,
we send a message to the world
and each other. That message
can and must involve sending a
clear message of our unity and
whether we are rejecting a form
of governance or embracing it,
and whether we are restoring
the values that this country was
founded upon, or drifting even
farther away from them.
Like Popeye, "We am what we
am," and we deserve to make the
wise choices ourselves and stand
responsible for them. Under the
current system our elections are
determined on whether senior
citizens were transported to meet-
ings and served snacks in some
Iowa basement, and groups of
college kids were encouraged to
cut their vacations short in New
Hampshire. Conversely, elections
must not depend on partisan
bickering, provincial whims, and
even the state of the weather. Sim-
ply put, there cannot be anything,
or anyone, except ourselves; to
blame for our type of government
that evolves, except ourselves. At
the risk of being redundant, the
current convoluted Primary pro-
cess and it's exorbitant costs pos-
sibly lends credibility to that old
proverb, that "The only reason to
keep banging your head against
the wall, is, that it feels so good
when you stop."
Our system of free elections
provide our one and only oppor-
tunity to stand tall and proud in
declaring who we are and what
we stand for, today, tomorrow and
forever. In doing this we can rein-
state our position of leadership of
the free world and whether they
need to be fearful or hopeful as to
your continuing existence.
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville
LaBelle

Take back the
American dream
Elections are coming up soon.
Everyone needs to sit down and
think about what our country
needs then study the candidates
running for election. The color of
a person's skin, their gender or
their political party should not be
a factor. We need to elect some-
one who is going to take on the
challenge of bringing our country
out of the economic problems
that we now have.
We have sat around and let
our good jobs be sent overseas.
Corporations should realize that
people have to have jobs in order
to make money to buy the cor-
poration's products. NAFTA was
a giant mistake. Politicians today
realize this and are trying to figure
out how to correct this problem.
Large corporations are rul-
ing over our country. We already
have the knowledge to construct
a car that has the potential to get
50+ miles to the gallon of gas.
We also have the knowledge to
build solar energy plants. If we
covered 8 percent of the deserts
in the. United States with solar


paneled generators we could pro-
vide enough electricity for most of
the United States.
We have the knowledge to
make a substitute fuel for gas
engines from grain, sugarcane
and even orange peels. The large
oil companies, however, do not
want to hear this.
Our politicians let insurance
companies force us to buy a lia-
bility policy for every car we own.
Why? You can only drive one car
at a time. All our medical people
have to buy insurance to practice
because the lawyers are telling
,them to sue the doctors if they are
not happy with their results. This
makes us pay more for our visits.
Politicians are cutting our law
enforcement budgets, firelighter
budgets and education budgets.
Services to feed the poor and
educate our youth are being at-
tacked. The American dream was
to come to America and get a job
to buy a home and support a fam-
ily. Now both parents must work
to survive.
We need to support those
who will work on getting our
jobs back in the U.S. Every per-
son should be able to get a job
that will pay for their necessities
of life. We need to get dedicated
teachers better pay. Our firemen
and law enforcement officers risk
their lived daily and they want to
cut their pay. We need to see ev-
ery child gets proper medical care
even if their parents can't pay for
it. We need to get affordable med-
ical care for everyone regardless
of their income or age.
We need to vote for those who
support these ideas, not only in
the national elections but also
in our local elections. We need
to hold those e elect to their
word. We have been told enough
lies. Now we need some positive
progress in solving our national
and local problems.
We need the money people
to start thinking about helping
America get back on its feet and
forget about mega gross' profits
for its shareholders.
We need to see who supports
our candidates. Big corporations
are going to back those who
will vote their way. If we study
the candidates and hold them to
what they promise then maybe
things will start to change for the
better.
Many people are afraid to
walk outside at night. Good hard
working families cannot afford a
home. Medical costs are out of
sight. Crime is way out of control.
Parents cannot find time to attend
school functions and keep up their
household duties. It is way past
time for change. I don't have the
answers. I'm just a citified coun-
try boy with a lot of questions.
We can travel in space but can't
figure out how to make our coun-
try work. The American dream is
still possible. We just need to de-
mand that our government take
action to make this possible. Vote
and vote wisely. This is the only
way to make change happen. If
you don't vote you have no right
to complain

Attention Glades
County residents
Some of you have recently
received notice from the County
that your physical street address
has changed, and you were con-
cerned over the costs of changing


titles and registrations to reflect
the new address.
I just spoke with Mrs. Keen at
the office of Glades County Tax
Collector Gail Jones (863) 946-
6035 and she informed me that
you are NOT required to get the
address changed on your title to
your vehicles) or boat(s). She
did suggest that if your title is still
being held by a lien holder, you
should notify them of your new
mailing address so the title can be
mailed to you when you pay it off.
(Your payment coupon may even
include the form for that.)
But if you have the title in your
possession, you do NOT need to
get it reissued with ybur new ad-
dress.
If you want to change the REG-
ISTRATION (not the title) to your
vehicle or boat BEFORE it's time
to renew it/purchase decal, you
can do that for $2.50 at the tax
collector's office. Mrs. Jones still
has her office open in Buckhead
on Wednesday.
But if you want to wait to
change your address until you get
the renewal sticker and registra-
tion, you can wait.
But please remember, it is
necessary to notify the Division
of Motor Vehicles of the address
change for your driver's license
and you can get the form and cost
information online by clicking:
http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/
forms/address_change.html
And one of the MOST IMPOR-
TANT offices you need to notify is
the Glades County Supervisor of
Elections. Mrs. Whiddon is avail-
able at (863) 946-6005 for instruc-
tions on how you can do that,
or you can email her requesting
information at hollywhiddon@
embarqmail.com.
She does require your signa-
ture on a form, it cannot be a
copy, and it must be original. Or
you can go to: http://election.
dos.state.fl.us/regtovote/webap-
pform.pdf and fill out the form
on-line then print it out and sign
it to-send by regular .mail to Mrs.
Whiddon.
Of course an address change
comes with some inconvenience
-- you need to get the packet of
forms from the post office to send
to folks that you want to have your
new address. Check this address
to access the USPS website that
has answers to Frequently Asked
Questions about address chang-
ing and mail being forwarded to
the new address.
Also, when you ,mail back in
payments such as credit cards or
utility companies, you can mark
on the remittance form to change
your address, or put a note to that
effect in the envelope.
The change is necessary to
eliminate duplication of numbers
and street names, but the main
purpose is so that when-you dial
911 from your home phone, your
accurate address will be displayed
and available with GPS mapping
for emergency services. You cer-
tainly want an ambulance or law
enforcement officer to be able
to find you quickly in an emer-
gency.
The county has been work-
ing on this project for several
years and Mrs. Terry Helfinstine
has done an outstanding job.
Her email address is glades911 @
gladescofl.net if you have any
more questions.
You can reach any of the afore-
mentioned Glades County offices
toll free at. (877) 445-2337

The problem of missing parts


Have you ever received a gift,
or bought an item only to discov-
er some pieces are missing? Per-
haps that has happened to you
when you were
assembling your
child's present
on Christmas
Eve. You know
the setting -- fi-
nally all the kids: 1
are asleep. You .
begin to put to-
gether bicycles, Dr. Les
swing sets, and Morgan
prop up "Baby-
Blow-Her-Nose" under the tree.
As the clock announces it is 1:30
a.m. you discover the bike which
was packaged in another country
far, far away did not come with
a front tire, the swing set does
not include chains, and face on
"Baby-Blow-Her-Nose" doesn't
have a nose!
Aren't you glad some things in
life come fully assembled pack-
aged?
Need some examples? Ire-
aneus, a second century church
leader, said, "The glory of God is
a human being who is fully alive."
Here's another: Jesus said, "I
have come that they might have
life and have it more abundantly."
(John 10:10).
At times there can appear to
be a misunderstanding about the
Christian life. We can think of our


faith only in terms of eternal life
in heaven. But eternal life starts
much earlier. It begins the mo-
ment we know Christ as Lord.
Paul wrote, saying, "As for you,
you were dead in your transgres-
sions and sins ... God made us
alive with Christ" (Eph 2:1, 4-5).
That means we can experi-
ence the fullness of God's bless-
ings in every area of life. Paul em-
phasizes this: "May God himself,
the God of peace, sanctify you
through and through. May your
whole spirit, soul and body be
kept blameless at the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ. The one
who calls you is faithful and he
will do it" (1 Thess 5:23-24 em-
phasis mine.)
Those words are important:
Peace, which means wholeness,
harmony, soundness. Sanctify,
means to set apart for God's
holy purposes. "Inner-personal
balance" is what is connected
to thought behind the phrase
through and through.
God's work of grace is happen-
ing in us. The Holy Spirit works
to bring all of life under Christ's
Lordship. The word "salvation"
(Rom 1:16) includes much more
than having ours sins forgiven
and being promised heaven,
as wonderful as that is. It also
means to set free and to make
whole. It includes assurance of
escape from judgment. Jesus did


not simply come into the world
to save us from hell; He came 'to
make us whole and to save us for
an abundant life -- spirit, mind
and body. He came to restore hu-
manity to the image of God. That
was completed what Christ died,
rose from the grave and returned
to Heaven.
It was that completed transac-
tion that assures us there are no
missing parts, or partial packag-
ing. He is the very definition of
life (Col 3:4.)


That may be just enough to
make you want to do a wheelie
on the back tire of a bicycle down
Highway 80!
Well, maybe not.
But it can give you great as-
surance. And that is a fully as-
sembled gift!

Caloosa Belle

Thank you, Miss Ida
The Woman's Club was packed Sunday, Feb. 3, with Ida Kirby's many friends and
family members as they came to wish her a happy 90th birthday. The gifts, however,
were from Miss Ida to all her well wishers. For decades she has been the unofficial
photographer of LaBelle's many social occasions and she has stored those pho-
tographs for years, giving them to friends and community members regularly. She
used this special occasion to share so many more of those photos with the com-
munity. Baskets of photos were placed at tables throughout the clubhouse for folks
to browse through and take the ones they wanted. So, Miss Ida, here's a picture for
you. Surrounding the birthday girl are, from left, her great-granddaughter Amanda,
13, her grandson Kevin (Amanda's father) from LeHigh Acres, Martha Jayne Gourley
(Ida's daughter), Miss Ida and her son Wayne Lofton from Alabama. Her son Jimmy
Vee could not attend the event.

when a former student began
borrowing books from, her over
a period of weeks, bringing one
back and borrowing another. Ms.
McVay finally learned the the stu-
dent was reading the books to her
younger siblings, ages 2 and 4, so
they would be able to read better

Ms. Mayo first asked him to read
to her which he did success-
fully. She was so impressed, she
asked his kindergarten teacher if

Barbara Scott gets a big hug from Veterans Service Officer
Millard Wagnon. The Nurse Manager for Veteran's Clinics
in Fort Myers, Naples, Port Charlotte and Sebring, Barba-
ra is retiring March 31, after 22 years of service. Millard
noted that she had been a good friend and advocate for
veterans through the years. She "solved every problem"
that came up, he said, and will be greatly missed since she
took a personal interest in the veterans under her care and
even visited many in civilian hospitals. As nurse manager,
she started out supervising eight nurses and now has 60
under her wing. "It's been a wonderful job," she said, "I
love my. vets and will miss them!" but added it's time for
her to move on, spending more time with her husband,
three children and four grandchildren. Barbara was sur-
prised with the acknowledgement at the American Legion
pork chop dinner Jan. 16. She was there with VA Clinic
Voluntary Service Specialist Jeannie Fisler.

Discuss it at the Speakers Corner


By Brenda Goodwin
On Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 7 pm,
Speakers Corner addressed some of
the new issues, now that Amend-
ment I had passed. John asked,
"Now what?" The News Press ad-
dressed the issue, stating that the
regulatory laws had to be put into
place. In fact, the law was already
passed on November 11, 2007. The
Director of the Department of Rev-
enue, under emergency rule, is to be
responsible for creating the addition-
al forms and tax roll assessments of
both the SAVE OUR HOMES exemp-
tions and the other exemptions and
non residential tax rolls. They are ex-
'panding from business tax into the
regulation of this new amendment.
(This law is available to be viewed as
the Caloosa Belle office, or you may
visit www.myflorida.gov. Look for
the bill 2D.)
Why? The Bankruptcy Act of 2005
allows credit card and other loan
companies to report to the IRS any
personal unpaid debts over $600.
These can now be added to your in-
come tax return as taxable income.
Become familiar with the Fair Debt
Collection Practice Act; and, if you
get an old debt added as income, re-
spond as requested, to the IRS, and
write, within 30 days, for debt valida-


tion from the original collector. The
company must send you a copy of
the original contract, with your sig-
nature, to be valid. One local lady
did have this happen to her. She was
able to have that removed from her
income. So, it works!
Just be aware of your rights. Ev-
erything is governed by the laws of
the land, from traffic to debt collec-
tion to changes in our Constitution.
Freedom has its cost. Lives have
been lost. And, this is still the greatest
country in the world. The internet is
a great way to become familiar with
the law and your rights. The United
States of America does not have a
debtor's prison, but with the IRS,
. the Department of Revenue, and the
new regulations for property taxes
being interlocked, it is easier to put
a lien on your property for unpaid
taxes. Stand ready and learn your
rights, and fight back, with the writ-
ten word, quoting the law.
Environmental interests, care of
our water and our green belts stirred
comments about Monsanto, the seed
company, who produces genetically
altered seeds. No longer can farmers
save and use the seeds for next year's
planting. The new seeds are sterile
and bear no fruit. Will commented,
"Our silos are empty. At one time, we
stored enough food to feed our na-


tion. A trucker's strike is all it takes to
keep food off the grocery shelf. Food
banks in our local churches can
pull a community through in tough
times.
A community is a group of people
from every walk of life. As members
of the community, it is time to pull
together and put a support system in
place, before a crisis arises. Church-
es, stretch into the community, find
a need and fill it. Build a network
of concerned citizens who become
lines of help. All it takes is a flat tire,
and you're late for work. Or a sick
child, with no back up babysitter,
and you miss a day of work. Network
now, before there is a problem. Get
to know your neighbor, but be safe.
Meet on common ground. Seniors!
What is your need? A leaky pipe?. A
lawn need mowing? Cleaning ser-
vices? Just some one to drop in and
care? Youth groups at churches can
help teens gain valuable experience.
Teens can provide a variety of care
giving services, from babysitting to
lawn work to calling seniors on the
phone. Speakers Corners invites you
to take care.of the business of living
by networking to build your own
personal support group of people
who dare to care. See you Thursday
at 7 p.m.

Budget supports workforce, early learning


Nature's beauty
Barbara Mahson of Whisper Creek took this intriguing
photo of a huge spider web at the park on Jan. 14. The
web was actually spun between the carport overhang and
the post. Amazing how strong something so fragile look-
ing can be.



Rainfall less than


half of normal


WEST PALM BEACH -- Me-
teorologists at the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) report that rainfall for No-
vember, December and January
averaged 2.95 inches District-wide
-- only 43 percent of the historical
average, or a relative deficit of 3.95
inches for the November-January
period. It marks the eighth driest
start to the South Florida dry sea-
son since rainfall recordkeeping
began in 1932. South Florida's
dry season begins in November
and ends with the start of the wet
season, typically in May..
All of the -SFWMD's major
basins experienced substantially
below average rainfall during this
period. The highest rainfall total
(relative to historical averages)
occurred in the District's East Ca-
loosahatchee Basin, where 3.84
inches of rain was recorded -- 60
percent of the basin's historical
average. The lowest rainfall totals
were in the District's Western Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area Basin
and Water Conservation Area 3,
each receiving less than 1.70 inch-
es of rain, or 27 percent of their
respective historical averages, for
. the three-month period .
SDistrict-wide rainfall for both
January 2008 and December
2007 averaged 57 percent of the
historical average for the respec-
tive months, while November
2007 rainfall was only 20 percent
of that month's historical aver-
age. Rainfall patterns continued
to favor southeastern residential
areas, where storage options for
water supply are limited and tidal
discharges are often required to
prevent flooding.
Most notably, localized rain
over eastern Palm Beach and
Broward counties on Jan. 22-23
required coastal discharges for
flood protection in highly popu-
lated areas where much of the
rain could not be captured. Nev-
ertheless, through activation of
the newly installed S-155A pump-
ing structure, water managers
successfully saved more than 400
acre-feet (130 million gallons) of
water per day during the subse-
quent week. The additional wa-
ter, which would otherwise have
been lost to tide at the S-155 spill-
way, helped meet allocations in
the Everglades Agricultural Area
for several days, so that water
releases from Lake Okeechobee
were not needed.
"In the Lower East Coast, lo-
calized rain events can raise ca-
nal levels and make it appear as
though water supplies are nor-
mal," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"These immediate supplies are
not 'enough to meet the dry sea-
son demands of the area's five
million residents and need to be
replenished by backup supplies
that this year may not be avail-
able. Responsible water manage-
ment involves operating on the
assumption that we will not have
backup supplies this year."
Current Water Levels
Surface water and groundwa-
ter levels across most of the Dis-
trict remain unseasonably low
and continue to decline due to
below average dry season rain-
fall. Water levels in the District's
two largest water bodies, Water
Conservation Area 3 and Lake
Okeechobee, remain lower today
than this time last year.
At 10.05 feet above sea
level Tuesday morning, Lake
Okeechobee remains more than
four feet below its historical aver-
age -- and nearly a foot below pre-
vious historic lows for this time
of year. Water levels in the lake
have been setting new record
daily lows for more than eight
months. Lake Okeechobee is the
source of water for 500,000 acres
of farmland in the Everglades Ag-


ricultural Area and serves as a pri-
mary backup supply to more than
five million South Floridians.
Due to safety hazards caused
by low water levels, the S-65E
navigation lock, which regulates
boat traffic between the Kissim-
mee River and Lake Okeechobee,
will be closed to navigation until
water levels in the lake return to
safe operating levels.
Groundwater levels in Lee,
Collier and other west coast
counties remain 2-to-4 feet lower
today than this time last year, with
many monitoring wells already
inside the lowest 10 percent of
their historic water elevations. Re-
cord low elevations for this time
of year have been recorded at one
monitoring well at Estero in Lee
County.
Groundwater levels in the Up-
per and Lower Kissimmee Basins
also remain below normal for this
time of year, despite favorable re-
cent rains in the Upper Kissim-
mee Basin.
"A dry start to the dry season
is not unusual, and even with
some stresses on our water re-
sources, it is not hydrologically
unmanageable. This year, how-
ever, we entered the dry season
with regional water supplies at
critical new lows, and aggressive
water conservation is necessary
to stretch and protect our water
resources," added Carol Ann We-
hle, executive director of the SF-
WMD. "March and April rainfall
will be the key to how our sup-
plies hold up."
Water restrictions
in effect
An extreme District-wide wa-
ter shortage order issued by the
SFWMD instituted a one-day-
a-week watering schedule for
residential landscape irrigation
beginning Tuesday, Jan. 15. Land-
scape irrigation accounts for up
to half of all household water
consumption in Florida. Over the
winter months, far less water is
lost to evaporation than during
the warmer spring and summer
months, and natural plant growth
is ,minimal so they require less fre-
quent watering.
Enforcement, including issu-
ance of civil fines and notices of
violation,, is now under way. For
information on watering days
and times, as well as restrictions
on specific use classes, visit www.
sfwmd.gov/conserve.
For additional information on
the water shortage, irrigation re-
strictions or water conservation,
call the SFWMD's toll-free Water
Conservation Hotline at 1-800-662-
8876 or contact a regional SFWMD
service center. Helpful water con-
servation tips also are available at
www.savewaterfl.com.


TALLAHASSEE -- Governor
Charlie Crist and Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp have unveiled
their budget priorities for Fiscal
Year 2008-09, which will contin-
ue to support the development
of world class talent in Florida
through early learning programs
and workforce services.
"The Governor is truly com-
mitted to ensuring Florida's con-
tinued success in the global mar-
ketplace, as evidenced by today's
budget recommendations," said
Monesia T. Brown, Director of
the Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion. "With this investment in our
state's early learning and work-
force initiatives, we will make
great strides in the development
of world-class talent, which is vi-
tal to Florida's economy."
'The Governor's budget for Fis-
cal Year 2008-09 includes:
Ensuring educational suc-
cess of Florida's children by
providing successful early
learning programs: Flori-.
da's groundbreaking Voluntary


pre-kindergarten program has
surpassed last year's total enroll-
ment in the first six months of
this school year. Governor Crist
is proposing funding to continue
the Voluntary Pre-kindergarten
program, which has already pre-
pared more than 200,000 children
for kindergarten in the first twd
years. Governor Crist also recom-
mends restoring budget authority
of $47.9 million to continue Flor-
ida's School Readiness program,
funding quality education for
eligible children in need of early
learning services.
Governor Crist recommends
three million of additional fund-
ing for the development of the
Early Learning Information Sys-
tem (ELIS), a Web-based system
for storing and accessing infor-
mation about early learning pro-
grams. The system will provide
child care providers and parents
with program and outcome infor-
mation that will be meaningful to
the delivery of quality educational
services for Florida's youngest


children.
Keeping Florida's work-
force competitive; two mil-
lion to upgrade skills: Gover-
nor Crist recommends additional
funding for the Quick Response
Training Program, which pro-
vides grant funding for custom-
ized training for new or expand-
ing businesses. Through this
employer-driven program, Florida
is able to effectively retain and at-
tract businesses creating new
high-quality jobs.
Governor Crist recommends
two million of continued funding
for the Banner Centers program.
This program focuses on creating
and providing up-to-date training
for workers in industries that are
critical to sustaining and growing
Florida's diverse economy. Most
centers are based at Florida com-
munity colleges or universities.
They engage educational institu-
tions, businesses and workforce
and economic development part-
ners, among others, to provide a


focal point for industry-specific
skills training. In addition, the
Banner Centers serve as clearing-
houses for companies in need of
training, create relevant and rigor-
ous new curricula for entry-level
and advanced workers who need
to upgrade their skills, and ensure
training and education meet in-
dustry standards.
Strengthening Florida's
military families; $700,000 to
continue workforce services
to military families: Under-
standing the importance of assist-
ing those who serve our country
and their families, Governor Crist
recommends continued funding
for the Military Family Employ-
ment Advocacy Program. This
program provides workforce ser-
vices such as employment coun-
seling, job search and placement
assistance, information on educa-
tional and training programs and
referral to supportive services to
military spouses and families.

Men's Group presented Judy Litt, President of Lucy's Angels

Angels sighted



in LaBelle


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Led by LaBelle's favorite clown,
Mary Bartoshuk, families, moms
and daughters, kids on bikes, tiny
ones in strollers even a man in a
golf cart about 100 walkers filled
the streets of LaBelle Saturday,
Jan. 26. Lucy's Angels were out
en force.
The group's mission is to make
a difference for young women
and men in Hendry and Glades
counties who need a mammo-
gram but cannot afford one. They
do what they do in memory of
Lucy Perez, who lost her battle
with breast cancer in 2000 at just
42 years of age.
The walkers made their way
from Barron Park to the Capt.
Hendry House and back to the
park again for more fun with ven-
dors and food. Carol and Mose
Shelton acted as MCs for the
event. HCSO Sgt. Barbara Brown
brought the Explorers and put on
puppet shows for the kids. Mc-
Gruff the Crime Dog also made
an appearance.
A young lady named Kayla
sang for the audience and the
Christian Men's Group from Carl-
son Memorial United Methodist
Church presented a $500 check to
Judy Litt, Lucy's Angels President,
along with the other board mem-
bers. Members of Lucy's Angels


were thrilled that the day's events
raised just over $5,300, which will
provide about 80 mammograms
for residents of Hendry and
Glades counties.
To be eligible for assistance
through Lucy's Angels, you must
be 50 years of age or under, live
in Hendry-Glades and not be able
to afford a mammogram. Other
programs Project Detect, Med-
icaid and the health department
- serve those over 50.
Members of Lucy's Angels
would liketo to thank everyone
who walked, all the vendors who
participated and all the people
who joined them in th'e park. The
community really pulled together
and made this event a huge suc-
cess. Lucy's Angels are most
grateful to the following spon-
sors for their help in making the
first Bosom Buddies Walkathon
a great success: Christian Men's
Group, Florida Community Bank,
Southern Excavating, Shewmak-
er Animal Hospital, Doc's Feed,
Rene's Lawn Care for providing
water, McDonald's for providing
ice, and the LaBelle Chamber of
Commerce. Thank you to all who
sponsored walkers, including J&J
Pharmacy, LaBelle Carpet & Tile
Outlet, Higginbotham & Soud, the
LaBelle Rotary Club, GR Harvest-
ing, 5 As Harvesting and LaBelle
Dodge and a final thank you to
the volunteers of Lucy's Angels.
