River center of area well being


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
In many ways the Caloosa-
hatchee River is an environmen-
tal and economic center of this
area. It is that aspect of the river
that Congressman Tim Mahoney,
Democrat representing District
16, was focusing on during
Riverwatch's Caloosahatchee
Riverboat Cruise Feb. 23. Along
with numerous experts in envi-
ronmental fields, the Congress-
man discussed water and energy
issues including the WRDA Bill,
the Farm Bill and the future of


bio-energy in Florida.
Coming up with clean renew-
able sources of energy and find-
ing ways to improve the local
economy can go hand in hand
for many who deal in agriculture
as well as the environment.
The river cruise was an op-
portunity to continue a discus-
sion on bringing the agricultural
and environmental communities
together to forward growth in
those areas. Best Management
Practices (BMPs) sets of regu-
lations for agribusiness that pro-
mote practices that achieve wa-


ter quality and quantity benefits
- were also discussed.
Organizers brought numer-
ous environmental groups as
well as those representing the
largest economic force in the
area agriculture together in
the overview, which included a
history of the river presented by
Rae Ann Wessel of the Saniitel.
Captiva Conservation Fcunda-
tion. Ms. Wessel explained how
the river, originally only 5-6 feet
deep, meandered through the
area with 300-400 bends, filter-
ing run off from the n'nhi -\fer


Rediscovering our past


Caloosa Belle/Patty Bran
This stretch of riverbank may one day be part of a proposed 176-acre nature park, dedi
cated to recreating Old Florida's landscape for residents and visitors.

By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Archaeologist Dr. Bob Carr's
words the park may have a lot
of archaeological merit were
welcome indeed to the adviso-
ry board trying to get a handle
on the many issues facing de-
velopment of a 176-acre parcel
on the river. Situated in Glades
County along the north side of
the Caloosahatchee River, the


park is leased to the City of La-
Belle by the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District. The
city hopes to recreate the site
into a regional nature park.
Dr. Carr came up from Mi-
ami Feb. 20 to report on just
what he is learning about the
site.
He explained he believes
there would be much ben-
efit in exploring the site. At


this time, he is- impl', seeking
information. The spoil depos
ited along the river from previ
ous dredging may have helped
perserve anything that may bi
there such as an Indian buri
al mound. Longtime Glade.

multiple dredgings, the river was
channelized. Combined with the
straightening of the Kissimmee
River and upper chain of lakes,
this created a flushing effect of
nutrient-laden water out to the
Gulf of Mexico. This, in turn, has
created environmental repercus-
sions in the estuary.
The Caloosahatchee is now
25 feet deep, a quarter mile
wide, with high spoil banks and
only 38 oxbows. Flow can now
drain from north to south faster
than the system's capacity to
treat it naturally. For that reason,


the new thinking is to echo the
past, she said, and renew the
north-south system as much as
possible.
For his part, Congressman
Mahoney explained that he has
learned that in Congress nobody
gets his way all the time House
members are forced to collabo-
rate, forming a balance.
Florida's economy is experi-
encing a weak recession and for
the the first time, more people
are leaving Florida than com-
ing, the congressman said. The

2 Caloosa Belle, Thursday, March 6, 2008


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
US Congressman Tim Mahoney speaks with Philip Stansly
of IFAS during a cruise on the Caloosahatchee River Feb. 23
which included some 40 of the area's environmental and ag-
ricultural experts. Discussion centered around the interaction
of the environment and the economy.


River
Continued From Page 1
question is: How to improve the
economy for all and foster growth
while still preserving our histori-
cal, cultural and environmental
values.
Congressman Mahoney is a
leader in promoting research and
investment in cellulosic ethanol
in the Farm Bill. He ranks biofuel
production very highly, stating
that there is no national security
without energy security diversity
from fossil fuels and food safety.
As one of the biggest biomass
producers, Florida is a natural for
new opportunities in the field of
biofuels.
Congressman Mahoney is pre-
dicting some 10,000 new jobs in
the bio energy industry coming to
the southern part of the state and
wants to keep these opportunities
local. Fifteen years from now, he
believes areas that are economi-
cally depressed could be some of
the weathiest.
The government is success-
fully filtering run off into the Ever-
glades through Stormwater Treat-


ment Areas (STAs). John Capece,
Director of the Calooshatchee
River Citizens Association (River-
watch), has suggested the gov-
ernment turn over such "green
industries" to the private sector,
creating a lucrative business with
a positive effect on the economy.
Water storage is another possible
"green industry" opportunity for
the area, he believes.
The congressman said the
federal government will have to
be pushed to help fund some of
these projects, however, because
President Bush's administration
has prioritized building Iraq's in-'
frastructure and bolstering Home-
land Security.
The congressman also said
he is looking at the original Ev-
erglades Restoration legislation
to see what exactly was agreed
upon. The legislation was billed
as a cost split between the state of
Florida and federal government;
however, the federal government
has not contributed to Everglades
Restoration as yet.
Congressman Mahoney said
this is a historic time of new eco-
nomic challenges and global
competition:

Clewiston sub-office
Commissioner Harris said he
looked at the sub-office in Clew-
iston recently and contractors are
estimating $100,000-$200,000 to
renovate it much less that the
cost of new construction. The
county has been renting space
at the old K-Mart since Hurricane
Wilma devastated portions of
Clewiston. He said the county
needs to get out of renting of-
fice space "even if we put up a
tent" for county business.
Commissioner Maddox ad-
dressed the drainage issue with
the facility, saying there are op-
tions including floor height and
swale work. The board declined
to make any decisions on the fa-
cility until all the Clewiston com-
missioners were present. Both
Commissioners Kevin McCarthy
and Bo Pelham were absent
from the meeting.
Courthouse Square
Mr. Lapp also reported he
has reached a dead end in pur-
suing the county's proposed
purchase of Courthouse Square,
on Lee Street east of the jail. The
county is leasing offices located
there from Royal's. The county
considered the owner's first ap-
praisal of $6.6 million too high
and countered with its own ap-
praisal of $4.3 million. Royal's
new appraisal -- $6.2 million is
only slightly lower than its origi-
nal one.
Ag uses on
residential parcels
The board took up discussion
on revising its code governing
agriculture uses in residential
districts. Currently, agricultural
uses may continue on property

district; agricultural uses on any
parcel of at least five acres may
be recommended within three
years after discontinuance; and
new agricultural uses may be
initiated on non-agriculturally
zoned parcels at least five acres
in size with a special permit. Staff
wants to initiate a process to re-
view agriculture special permit
requests.
LaBelle resident Mel Karau
cautioned the commissioners
about speculators who may use
the system for their own ben-
efit. Commissioner Bill Maddox
moved to give County Attorney
Mark Lapp permission to pre-
pare an ordinance for special
permitting, which was seconded
by Commissioner Darrell Harris.
The motion passed, but there will
be a hearing on the proposed or-
dinance later.
Airport hangars
Staff concluded that, as per
insurance coverage, the county
is entitled to "like-for-like" re-
construction of hurricane dam-
aged hangars at LaBelle Airport
and Airglades Airport. Staff con-
cluded that insulation had only
been installed in older hangars;
therefore it could be included in
Hammer Construction's repairs
only to those hangars. Ventila-
tion should be replaced because
it was previously installed. Light-
ing will-be identical to what was
there before the damage. Staff
will replace lighting in one han-
gar in which Hammer used only
similar fixtures.\ Roll up doors on
end units were improperly placed
originally, so the county must ac-
cept like replacement, Mr. Lapp
said.
Commissioner Maddox noted
that there is a long waiting list for
hangars in LaBelle. If the county
can add fnore hangars it could be
a source of revenue. County En-
gineer Sharne Parker said permis-
sion has been applied for from
Florida Department of Transpor-

station for one more hangar at Air-
glades at this time. South Florida
Water Management District per-
mitting is required for additional
hangars, he pointed out, saying
he will look into the possibility of
adding more hangars.

Ocean Boy
The county is still seeking sat-
isfaction from Ocean Boy, which
leased a facility at Airglades for
shrimp distribution. Most dam-
age left by the company when
it moved out of the building has
been repaired, but the county at-
torney told the board that there,
is a disagreement with Ocean
Boy on the extent of roof repairs
and missing walk-in freezer and
cooler units. Mr. Lapp said he will
continue negotiating with Ocean
Boy.

SWFAS breaks ground on new detox center


Southwest Florida Addiction
Services (SWFAS) officially broke
ground Thursday for the first new
detoxification center to be built in
Lee County in more than 50 years.
The new 40-bed Detoxification
and Outpatient Treatment Center
will sit on a four-acre site on Ev-
ans Avenue adjacent to Southwest
Florida Regional Medical Center
that was donated by the City of
Fort Myers under a long-term land
lease.
Among those who participated
.in the ground-breaking were Lee
County Commission Chairman
Ray Judah, Fort Myers Mayor Jim
Humphrey, Lee Memorial Health
System President Jim Nathan,
and Southwest Florida Commu-
nity Foundation Chairman Donna
Kaye as well as The Kleist Family
Foundation and Jim and Donna
Sublett.
Each of the participants made
large financial contributions to the
capital campaign to build the new
center, which will replace the ex-
isting smaller Detoxification Cen-
ter on Cleveland Avenue that is
housed in a converted motel built

"We are very grateful to the
many supporters who have dem-
onstrated again and again their
commitment to helping us help
others. Now we need to redouble
our efforts to raise funds to reduce
our long term debt," Lewis said.
About $6 million has been
raised for the $9.5 million project,


with room-naming opportunities
still available. Lewis said interim
financing has been arranged to
enable SWFAS to move forward
with construction while fund-rais-
ing continues.
"There would be nothing bet-
ter than to reduce or eliminate our
long-term debt for this facility so
that we have more money avail-


able to help individuals in need,"
Lewis said.
Officials say the new center,
when completed in about one
year, will respond to "a crisis in
substance abuse services in South-
west Florida."
"There isn't a day that passes
that we aren't forced to turn away
people in need of immediate de-
toxification because there are no
beds available," Lewis said. "It is
a quiet tragedy that occurs every
day."
SWFAS is the most comprehen-
sive substance abuse treatment
and prevention program in South-
west Florida, serving 6,000 people
per year from ages 9 to 90. SWFAS
offers outpatient and residential
programs for both adults and
youngsters from seven locations
in Lee County. Fees are charged
on a sliding scale, based on fam-
ily income. In many cases, private:
insurance is accepted. SWFAS is a
United Way agency.

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the
4-H/FFA Market Swine Show was
held. The show consisted of 4-H
and FFA members exhibiting their
market swine ranging from 230
pounds to 310 pounds.
The official judge of the eve-
ning was Mr. Don Strickland of
Sarasota. The hogs were judged
on muscling, trimness, length of
body, spring to the rib, design,
productive type, correctness of
finish, and expected carcass desir-
ability.
The Grand Champion Swine
was shown by Raisin Pork Pride
4-H Club member Yvette Clinard.
Yvette's hog weighed 298 pounds.
Tyler Peacock of the Clewiston
FFA Chapter exhibited the Reserve
Champion Hog weighing in at 262
pounds.
After the placing of the swine
came the Showmanship category.
The official showmanship judge
of the evening was Mrs. Karen
Andrle of Sarasota. Showmanship
is judged on the ability to exhibit
an animal to'its.beSt advantages,
well as the overall care and train-
ing of the animal. The exhibitors
are judged on control, presenta-
tion to the judge, awareness of
the judge, and knowledge of the


species. Planning, practicing, and
neat appearance will assist the ex-
hibitor in being successful.
In the Junior.Swine Showman-
ship division, Raisin Pork Pride 4-
H Club members took both first
and second place. Clayton McGee

Letters to the Editor


Don't mess with
Swamp Cabbage
I have lived in the LaBelle area
most of my life and I would like
to give my take on this year's fes-
tivities. When I went away to col-
lege and my time in the military,
I may not have always made it
back for Christmas, but I always
tried to make it back home for the
Swamp Cabbage Festival.
This year was one of the best.
The weather was great, we didn't
run out of swamp cabbage fritters
too soon and the gator tail was
good as always. The car show
may be a relatively new addition,
but the oldies music with the old-
ies cars was a hit. There were two
Cobras in the show. That is the
dream car of all men and also of
my wife. The rodeo and the lawn
mower races made the day a busy
one and anyone who went away
bored or hungry didn't need to be
here in the first place. The City of
LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Com-
mittee did well and deserves a
hand this year.
I have some observations that
many have talked about but not
publicly, as I will now. These
are not negatives, but observa-
tions that may help make it big-
ger and better. We need to open
the festivities to a larger section
of the city. The park is just too
small an area. I think having the
side streets closed in the section
from Lee Street to Main Street
from 80 to the bridge and spread
the vendors out along these side
streets would be a better idea
for the future. Hwy. 80 would be
able to stay open except for the
parade and the flow of foot traf-
fic under the bridge would help
relieve travel jams. It would save
the bottle necking at the park
and give more vendors a chance
to show their wares and the city,
would make more money.
The Old Timer's Dinner start-
ed out as a few of the pioneer


families having a covered dish
get together. The museum should
not have taken this over. Let the
museum have another fund raiser
some other time and let the old
timers have back their time to-
gether, with their covered dishes
like before. This year's event was
one of the most boring and the
food was skimpy portions and
they ran out of food. Last year
the excitement by a girl's opinion
was at least interesting and got
people talking. For $18, I would
have gladly paid for homemade
covered dishes from some of the
cooks in LaBelle, but not chicken
at the Old Timers Dinner.
The only other problems we
had were the Fair and the Red
Cross Benefit. Both should know
that the Sugar Festival and the
Swamp Cabbage Festivals are La-
Belle and Clewiston's once a year
party times. To schedule things in
that time is not only inconsider-
ate of them, but will cost them
more than the lack of participants
in their functions. They can do
theirs any time except those two
weekends and people will sup-
port them. If you mess with our
Sugar Festival and Swamp Cab-
bage Festival weekends, people
will remember it for a long time
and not fondly.
Thanks for your time.

The "WORD" is out
Albert Einstein is credited with
saying that "there are two ways
to live your life: One is as though
nothing is a miracle. The other is
as if everything is a miracle."
Whichever may be your choice
of lifestyle, I think the miracle
of birth can and does stand up
to any challenge as to its miracle
qualities. Anyone who has been
blessed enough to produce a child
and witness it's maturing, can and
should testify to its miracle classi-
fication in an unabashed way. I


remember when, once I got used
to the idea that my parents were
expecting a child when they got
me, I accepted the challenge of
proving to them that I was not a
lost "labor of love."
Born in the throes of the
Great Depression, my childhood
memories are not of being poor,
which we were, but rather that
everyone we knew was just like
us. Whatever and however they
managed through this period, I
was only to learn about and truly
appreciate only after I became a
parent. Whatever material things
we might have lacked they made
up for by providing an abun-
dance of love and commitment
that have to this day been a sta-
bilizing force in any successes or
accomplishments I might have
accomplished.
Many of you have commented
on my proclivity for using words
of, in some cases, exceptionally
extended in longitudinal structure
and substance. Well, or as Presi-
dent Reagan would say, "WELL!!,
now that you have expressed
what I consider a valid issue, I
would like to take a few minutes
to discuss, what, after some re-
view I believe my word "longev-
ity" might stem from.
One of my Daughters in Law
put it all in perspective one day
when after listening to one of my
lengthy responses to a short ques-
tion stated the following. "Bill,
you are the kind of person, who
if asked the time of day, would tell
them how to build a clock." She
is still one of my. favorites, and
from that day forward, I had, for
the first time a better understand-
ing of what makes me "tick."
Getting back to "lengthy
words," I did some research and
found out that there is a company
whose only destiny in life is to de-
fine and name any and all known
or discovered phobias, and "word
length" is one of them.
They have named it "Hip-
popotomonstroesquipedalio-


phobia", which is defined as "A
persistent, abnormal, and unwar-
ranted fear of long words." For a
fee, the research company has
a program whereby they assure
you that properly supervised and
implemented, cures in the range
of 85 to 90 percent have been
achieved.
Once I had discovered that
the "lengthy word" phobia had
been identified, I set about look-
ing for other phobias that seem to
abound in increasing preponder-
ance in today's hectic lifestyles
and endeavors, and here are a
few for your edification and en-
joyment.
There seems to be a phobiatic
aura attached to the confusion
and controversy being put forth
as meaningful "change" by the
politicians trampling the truth on
their way to the "Golden Arches"
of the political "Holy Grail", the
Presidency. Phobias that apply
are:
Fear of politicians is: po-
liticophobia. Fear of clowns is:
coulrophobia. Fear of words is:
verbophobia. Fear of work is :
ergophobia. Fear of writing is:
graphophobia, and fear of law-
yers is: litsuphobia. These few
that I have listed are exclusively
my best analysis of what the cur-
rent, continuing political process
has driven people to detach them-
selves from the electoral process.
Choosing to not vote as they sink
deeper into complete phobiatic
shock.
These listed phobias are just
a few of the thousands that exist
in the phobia littered landscape of
our lives, and I am sure that future
historians will duly note their pro-
liferation and the resultant conse-
quences of such a phobia driven
society, as we collectively struggle
to establish our God given "Birth
rights" or "Wrongs!"

College to add three Bachelor's programs


FORT MYERS -- Edison Col-
lege District President Kenneth
P. Walker announced that the
Florida Board of Education has
approved the College's request
. to offer three new Bachelor's de-
grees: Bachelor of Science (BS)
degrees in Nursing and Elemen-
tary Education and a Bachelor of
Applied Science (BAS) in Supervi-
sion and Management.
"Edison College's successful
experience to date at the bacca-


laureate level prepares us well for
expansion in these areas of need,"
said Mr. Walker. "We are delight-
ed with the decision of the State
Board, and anxious to contrib-
ute to the pool of well-prepared
teachers, nurses with bachelor's
degrees, and highly-prepared
managers for Southwest Florida's
business community."
The College plans to stagger
program implementation begin-
ning with Elementary Education


and Supervision and Manage-
ment in early 2009. The Bachelor
of Science in Nursing will follow
in August 2009. Currently, Edison
is preparing to roll out two other
bachelor's degree programs, sec-
ondary mathematics education
and secondary biology educa-
tion. Upper division classes in the
secondary education programs
will be initially offered at the Lee
campus beginning August 2008.
Class schedules for both full-time


and part-time students are be-
ing developed, including evening
classes to accommodate teaching
assistants and paraprofessionals
working within the field of edu-
cation and desiring to become a
secondary education teacher.

elor's degree programs, contact

CHRIST CEnTRPA,







Congratulations
To Pastor Shannon Craft and the Church formerly

Christ Central was founded in Lake City, Florida in
April of 1998. The founding pastor is Pastor Lonnie
Johns. Christ Central is a non-denominational min-
istry with a vision of reaching the world with the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church is active in World

sionary stations. The church has also launched sev-
eral "Daughter Churches" to carry the vision to
other cities and states. There are now daughter

Christ Central is an exciting, growing, progressive
"Church on the Move." A church that is "Making a

Today Show films wing suit jump


Jeb Carliss plans first wing
suit jump without parachute

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY -- Hendry County re-
ceived a little national attention earlier this
week as the Today Show filmed on location
a man's practice wing suit jump.
Cameras rolled and Today Show corre-
spondents in New York City expressed ner-
vousness over the prospect of Jeb Carliss
jumping without the aid of a parachute just
outside of Clewiston, at the skydiving busi-
ness operated by Rick and Lisa Hornsby.
Looking frightfully similar to a 6-foot fly-
ing squirrel as he glided in the air, Mr. Carliss
smiled when he landed.
He was one jump closer to realizing his
goal.
His Tuesday morning, Feb. 26 attempt was
only a practice run, to be sure. The jumper
opened his parachute before touching down
and tried as best as he could afterward to ex-
plain why someone would be willing to take
the risk of jumping without one.
After he had taken off his wing suit, Mr.
Carliss explained that the idea to jump with-
out a parachute came to him rather naturally.
During previous wing suit jumps, he would
wonder what would keep him from injuring
himself if the rate of fall slowed to somewhere
around 36 miles per hour.
Why not, he thought? Perhaps, because
the horizontal speed still hovers well over 100
miles per hour, of course.
Still, there was something about the act of
gliding gracefully down to the earth that ap-
pealed to him, and Mr. Carliss didn't abandon
the idea.
The work began in earnest when a spon-
sor offered him $1 million for the attempt.
Since then the jumping pioneer has been
hard at work, completing many practice
jumps throughout the past few years and
working on finding better wing suits.


The hard work has paid off and, according
to him, the team is reaching a point where the
wing suit jumps can actually be considered
fairly safe.
It's too soon to start a wing suit jumping
business, though. Many months of practice
are required, and even then, there is no mea-
sure of safety.
Mr. Carliss maintains that he is no Evil
Knievel, and will only jump when he is sure
that the process has been perfected.
"I've broken bones before, it's not fun," he
said.
There will always be risks with wing suit
jumping, and even Jeff Nebelkopf, who de-
signs the suits for a living, doesn't encourage
it.
"I think it's possible," Mr. Nebelkopf said
about the idea. "I try to sway people against
it."
Mr. Nebelkopf works closely with a cloth-
ing company to design new versions of the
wing suits, and has helped to advance the
technological improvements of the nylon-
based suit. Even so, he's not entirely sure that
a person should attempt the jump.
"If you can gett of your car at 120 miles
per hour on your chest, and then fall off from
a two-story building and survive," you might
survive an un-assisted wing suit jump, he
said.
There is no definite date set for the jump,
and plans hinge on the jumper securing the
financing to build a unique landing structure
to accommodate the jump.
All of the planning doesn't soothe the
fears of Mr. Carliss' parents, who offered
their son $1 million not to jump. They worry
that despite all his work something might go
wrong.
But Mr. Carliss remains steadfast.
"My life is about experiences," the pro-
spective wing suit jumper said. "You have to
take amazing risks to have amazing experi-
ences."
