Part-time residents win concession


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Part-time residents, spear-
headed by Aqua Isles, left the
March 13 city commission meet-
ing pleased after winning billing
concessions from the city for
part-time residents during the
time they are not living in La-
Belle.
The issue has been discussed
at the last several board meetings
and has been in the background
since the city raised utility rates
last year. It was the first time the
city raised its utility rates in al-
most 20 years.


Mayor Paul Puletti agreed
with winter residents' argument
that they were unfairly subsidiz-
ing permanent residents' utility
bills. However, he was struggling
with how to set up a system that
would be fair to all keeping
down permanent residents' bills
and yet bringing in the revenue
required for the city to meet its
responsibilities. LaBelle is in
the process of building a badly
needed $25 million, 2,5 million
gallon per day reverse osmosis
water plant. ,
- Aqua Isles residents have re-
peadedly stated that they are not
opposed to paying a disconnect/


reconnect fee to cover availabil-
ity of service during the time
they're gone.
With the board's decision,
part-time residents will no lon-
ger get a sewer bill during the
months their water is discon-
nected. Reconnection will trigger
commencement of regular bill-
ing. They will continue to receive
a basic, fixed demand water bill.
The exemption will affect
some 260 households. The city
has some 1,850 total utility cus-
tomers; 1,590 of those are con-
sidered permanent residents.
Discussion continued on
ways to relieve the burden of

include reducing garbage pick

A recycling program is also
on the table. A representative of

vendor, was on hand to answer
questions at the meeting and
said the company is amenable
to discussion on all topics.
Road solicitation
The city is drafting an or-
dinance regulating collecting
money for charities/organiza-


tions on the highway. Many or-
ganizations including children's
groups have taken to stationing
members at busy intersections
to sell goods or seek donations
for charity.
Linda McVey, vice chairman
of the LaBelle Bicycle/Pedestrian
Committee, brought the matter
of safety to the board's attention.

ings; had already done some
research and found that such

At about 3 a.m. Easter Sun-
day, March 22, deputies an-
swered a call reference a severe
beating or possible shooting.
The victim had already been
admitted to Lee Memorial Hos-
pital in Fort Myers, where he
was listed in critical condition.
Inv. K.M. Bennett and Fer-
nando Herrera responded to
Lee Memorial where the victim
had been identified as 75-year-
old Jose Antonio Villarreal. The
officers were advised that he
had suffered severe head trau-
ma which could be fatal.
Earlier that night deputies
were called to the area of For-

deputies were directed to the
Car Care Mechanic Shop at 260
N. Bridge Street, just west of
Forrey's parking lot. According
to the sheriff's report, the bay
doors were open as well as a
smaller door to the office. There
they found shop owner Jose
Antonio Villareal, 75, sitting in a
green plastic lawn chair, bleed-

else, she said she'd have to see
the needs and survey the office.
Ms. Harn said she loves Hen-

she's done her homework for the
public and always wanted to do
this. "The time is just right," she
added.
"It's the same job as when I
was there," she said, "but they

As property appraiser she said
she would have to look at all val-

City promises MLK improvements


*By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Residents Nora Ned and Ray
-Field Johnson appeared at the La-
Belle City Commission's March 13
.meeting, asking the city,to take
care of Martin Luther King Blvd.
Using words like "awful, dan-
'gerous, horrific" Ms. Ned described
the condition of one of LaBelle's
*main arterial roads. MLK is a city
'road, she pointed out, used by
many residents not just neighbor-
hood traffic. Many drivers contrib-
ute to the condition of MLK, she
said, which should be brought up
-to proper use and safety levels by
the city. In addition to the condition
of the road itself, she pointed to the
lack of drainage and sidewalks as
important deviations from .appro-
priate and safe standards.
Superintendent of Public Works
Michael Boyle said major repair
work is about to begin on Bridge
Street and MLK is the next big road
project on the city's agenda. He
said the problem with the drain-
age is that there isn't much "fall" to
move the water away. He said he
will ask South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) to work
on the problem. The entire city


needs a drainage plan, but there is
no money at this time to do that,
Mr. Boyle said.
MLK is a one-mile road that will
require base work and a box culvert
along with curbing and sidewalks
to bring it up to proper standards.
Mr. Boyle said it will probably be
about a $1 million project.
Ms. Ned reminded the board
that she has brought these issues
to their attention numerous times
over the years. F/S Park residents
have been more than patient, she
said, She brought the road prob-
lems up at a Community Traffic
Safety Team meeting and was told
by Florida Department of Trans-
portation that not enough fatalities
have occurred on MLK for FDOT to
become involved.
Mayor Puletti asked Mr. Boyle if
impact fees when and if the city
starts to receive them could be
used to repair MLK. (The Hendry
County Commission voted Feb. 12
to suspend all impact fee collection
for one year, due to a slowdown in
growth. Impact fees are to be rein-
stated Jan. 8, 2009.) Mr. Boyle said
impact fees may only be used for
projects that increase the capacity
of a road.
The city's plan to set up a se-


curity station near Fordson Park is
progressing slowly. The Sheriff's
Office has the lease contract but
has not returned it t the city as yet.
Mayor Puletti said the sheriff plans
to get a FEMA trailer to set up on
the property to use as a substation
and a deputy will be quartered at
the old Sims home.
Residents have been concerned
for some time about activity at the
park, especially late at night.
The mayor also said he wants
to ask the Recreation Board about.
putting a security light up outside
the Singleton Center.
A number of ordinances were
read for the first time at the March
13 meeting. They are:
Allowable uses in business and
industrial areas; street lighting,
alcoholic beverages; the LaBelle
name clarification; and Goodwill
Industries comprehensive plan.
These will come up for discussion
at the April meeting.
Mayor Puletti suggested trying
to curb traffic congestion around
the post office by making Washing-
ton Ave. a one way street in front
of the post office. The suggestion
will be studied.

Tobacco free campaign ignites statewide


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has
,launched a $17 million statewide
,social marketing and public rela-

features cutting edge interactive
platforms, community events,
educational outreach and brand-
ed programs. Partnerships with
renowned brands are expanding
the vast reach and impact of this
vital campaign to combat the per-
vasive problem of tobacco use in
'the Sunshine State; where each
year, more than 28,000 Floridians
die from smoking.
Targeting the Florida market
with particular emphasis on the
11-17 age group, adults 18-24,
small businesses, chronic disease
sufferers, pregnant women, low-
income households and parents,
the campaign will touch millions
statewide. "Tobacco Free Florida
promotes healthy habits among
Florida's youth, emphasizes that
smoking cessation is the single
most important step that smokers
can take to enhance the length


and quality of their lives, and edu-
cates the entire population about
the dangers of cigarettes, smoke-
less tobacco and secondhand
smoke," states Florida Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte Ros,
M.D., M.P.H.
The comprehensive media
campaign features compelling
print, billboard, broadcast and on-
line advertising. The initial series
of ads educates consumers on
tobacco cessation, the dangers of
smokeless tobacco and smoking
during pregnancy, and encour-
ages businesses to comply with
the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act.
More than 200,000 television and
radio spots will air in every major
market in Florida, and online geo-
targeted impressions will exceed
400 million.
The first campaign ad, target-
ing adult smokers, depicts a child
playing catch by himself as a cau-
tionary voiceover warns of smok-
ing's annual death toll 31,000
children are left fatherless.2

viewers statewide. The commer-
cial was also featured on YouTube
and amassed more than 270,000
views online. Print and television
coverage of the commercial's
launch extended into nine major
markets Miami, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg,
Tallahassee, Fort Myers/Naples,
Gainesville, West Palm Beach and
Panama City. The commercial
continues to receive significant
airtime, running during prime-
time shows such as "American
Idol."
The Tobacco Free Florida web-
site,www.tobaccofreeflorida.com
is a comprehensive resource for
both smokers and non-smokers
including cessation tools, tobacco
statistics and a calendar of state-
wide events that campaign teams
will visit. In addition, the site fea-.
tures all the interactive compo-
nents of the campaign, free music
downloads from Florida bands
and broadcast commercials.
Given that 90% of smokers
begin before the age of 18, and
87% of teenagers are online, the
campaign reaches this key demo-
graphic by using non-traditional
marketing methods and taking
advantage of the tremendous
popularity of online interactive
technologies like YouTube.3,4
The campaign has partnered with
YouTube to sponsor the YouCare
video contest where entrants
share why they don't smoke.
The contest allows users to vote
for their favorite submission and
the top 50 videos will be shown
on the first ever statewide On-
Demand channel devoted exclu-
sively to the campaign, reaching
more than 2 million subscribers
to Comcast and Bright House
Networks Digital Cable. Judges
will pick the grand prize winner
who will receive an Apple iMac
computer and an iPod touch.
Quitline (1-877-U-CAN NOW)
offers free nicotine replace-
ment therapies such as nicotine
patches, gum and lozenges and
provides confidential telephone
counseling to cigarette or chew-
ing tobacco users. For the first
time, Quitline will leverage web-
based communication strategies
to increase the use of this cessa-
tion tool. The Tobacco Free Flor-
ida website provides technology
for smokers to enter their phone

Letters to the Editor


To the Editor:
As chairperson of MDA's Sham-
rocks Against Dystrophy, I want to
take a moment to thank business-
es and patrons in the LaBelle area
for their generous participation in
our 2008 campaign. I'm delighted
to say that this year's fundraising
efforts were a great success.
Those little green and gold
Shamrock mobiles sold by local
businesses help support MDA's
vital programs of research, health
care services and public educa-
tion right here in LaBelle and
across the country.
On behalf of all the individuals
and families coping with muscle-
wasting diseases, I send a big
warm "thank you" to La Belle
residents you've certainly put a
smile in these Irish eyes!
Sincerely,
Maureen McGovern

Tater tots and
Forget-me-nots
As I wind my way through an-
other day of negativity, I feel like
a mosquito in a nudist colony.
I know what to do, but I don't
know where to start!
The negativity would seem to,


stem from, and be substantiated
as society, as whole, would seem
to slowly being extinquished due
to unparalled apathy, indifference
and undernourishment. Having
been metastasized into an all en-
compassing, lethargic reaction to
the seemingly endless cascade of
world wide chaos and instabil-
ity. Highlighted by the pandering,
political process at all levels of so
called government, through exist-
ing leaders and wanna-bes.
But, as a committee of one, I
refuse to accept this as our hard
won heritage and with this ar-
ticle, attempt to lighten the nega-
tive mood forced upon us by the
24/7/365 attempt by the media to
control our destiny and lives. With
all the negativity emanating from
the political processes incessantly
forcing itself into our lives, I am
proposing we take a "vegetative"
approach. Inasmuch as we are an
agricultural based county, after
close analysis and observation of
the current "crop" of elected offi-
cials and those running for office,
I decided that the "vegetative"
state of the union might best al-
low for a meaningful of harvest of
the available "crop." -
Try as I may, I couldn't sepa-
rate the wheat from the chaff in


assigning any one personss,
elected or seeking office, into any
one specific category of the ','veg-
etative" domain. So I will leave
that to your fertile, discerning
judgements as to who ydu feel
best fits what category. Or as my
Father was prone to say, "When
you have Mushroom Manage-
ment, be prepared to be kept in
the dark and fed a lot of crap!"
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, never seem motivated to
participate and are just content
to watch, take action, make deci-
sions, or do the work. They are
what I call: SPECTATORS.
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, don't do anything to
help, but go to great extremes
to find fault and question the re-
sults of others efforts and results.
They are what I call: COMMEN-
TATERS.
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, are very bossy and insist
on telling everyone What and
how to do things without ever lift-
ing a finger or actually doing any
of the work. They are what I call:
DICTATERS.
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, are always quick to go to
great lengths to cause problems
by insisting that everyone has


to agree with only their point of
view. They are what I call: AGI-
TATERS.
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, always insist that they
are willing, and will help, but
somehow always find ways just.
not to get around to actually help-
ing. They are what I call: HESI-
TATERS.
Some people, once in the of-
fice/job, go to great extremes to
put up false fronts and pretend
to be someone entirely different
from who they really are. They
are what I call: IMITATERS.
Then there are those people,
once in the office/job, who do
what they say they will do and go
the extra mile to help other people
by lending a helping hand. They
are what I call: SWEETATERS.
Certainly there are many other
occupations in which the "veg-
etative" state can be found in full
bloom, but, pertinently speaking,
I am reminded of what Will Rog-
ers is credited with saying, many,
many, years ago. "If at first you
don't succeed, try politics!"
Respectfully,
T.W. Bill Neville
LaBelle


By Pastor Les Morgan
Caloosa Baptist Church,
LaBelle
The. noted missionary C.T.
Studd asked, "Why are gamblers
for gold so many and gamblers
for God so few?"
While it is a risk, it is possible
to accomplish great things for
God. It begins with possessing a
vision, a dream, a zeal.
A "vision" is the ability to see.
the opportunities ahead and the
willingness to take a step of faith
to see the vision turn to reality. It
is courage and fortitude to press
on until the vision is fulfilled.
Vision requires the risk of faith.
This is different from the "leap
of faith." The risk of faith works
within the promises of God which
assure us of success.
The Bible talks about prophets
who had various encounters with
the Lord, Many had visions so
clearly, they pursued those revela-
tions until they became a reality.
The prophet Ezekiel experi-
enced "visions of God" (Ezekiel
1:1). today I believe people need
"visions for God."


I do not believe God needs
something presented to Him that
He has never thought about. God
has never learned anything! He
knows it all!
However, consider how one
life set towards a passion that is
much larger than itself can make
a difference. It would require a
God-shaped plan of action to be
realized.
Review your life for a moment
- we have received so much from
God. Most enjoy good health, a
home, ample food and clothing,
friends, safety, and a free coun-
try to become anything we wish.
All of these are grace gifts from
above.
In considering these gifts from
the Almighty, wouldn't it be rea-
sonable that we express humble
gratitude by do something for
God?
Of course! So, let me ask you,
what are you doing for God with
your life and'resources? : '.
There arel many ways to make
a contribution to others in God's
name. Maybe deep within you is
a desire to pursue a teaching or
medical career.


Go for it! Possibly you passion-
ately would like to help unwed
mothers or women who have
been abused.
Have at it! Or, perhaps there
is a dream inside your soul that
longs to assist the elderly.
Find a way to make it happen!
God has put that within you, and
He will 'direct you.
Solomon reminds us, "Where
there is no vision, there the peo-
ple perish" (Proverbs 29:18).
Jesus turned the world upside
down with his vision. He stated
boldly "The kingdom of heaven
is near!" (Matthew 4:17). Multi-
tudes followed Christ because
they shared his vision.
You may have never thought
about what contribution you can
make to others in Christ's name.
If not, ask God for a vision for
your life -- a vision so great it in-
spires others to yield their best to
God as a "Thank you, God" gift.
This 'is not written to make
anyone feel pressured to be great,
or to be consumed with solving
all the problems of the world by
tomorrow afternoon. That won't
happen.


However, I do hope to stir
some readers to dare to move out
in the name of God and make a
difference in someone's life, in
this community and even in the
world.
Pursuing a God-sized dream
means something different for
everyone.
So, rise to your level of great-
ness.
Life is not a competition with
others. Only seek what God
would have you to do and to ful-
fill for Him, and then do it out of
gratitude for all He has given you!
"May the God of peace...equip
you with everything you need for
doing his will, and may he work
in us what is pleasing to him,
through Jesus Christ (Hebrews
V'3:20, 21).

TALLAHASSEE Governor
Charlie Crist and Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) Secretary Michael W.
Sole launched a new system for
e-mail notification of permit ap-
plications for the public.
The Permitting Application
Subscription Service, or PASS, al-
lows the public to receive e-mail
alerts when permit applications
11 are submitted to DEP.
The announcement, made
during Sunshine Week, observed
March 16-22, 2008, furthers the
state's commitment to open gov-
ernment and quality of life.
"Services like PASS- are just
one more way'we are working
to create a more open, transpar-
ent government for the people of
Florida," said Governor Charlie
Crist.
"Our goal is to increase access.
to government for all Floridians
and I am glad DEP is improving
services for residents, business
owners, and professionals in the
field."
PASS allows any interested
party to access information about


environmental permit applica-
tions received by the agency in
any area of Florida.
Users provide an e-mail ad-
dress and identify locations of
interest as well as activities of
interest, and then will receive e-
mail notification with more infor-
mation when permit applications
are received at DEP that match
the specifications chosen by the
member of the public.
Subscribers will receive an
e-mail identifying application in-
formation such as project ID, lo-
cation name and ID, and permit
application number as well as
contact information for the ap-
propriate permitting office.
"While many industries and
individuals are already familiar
with our regulatory permitting
system at DEP, this new notifica-
tion service will be enormously
useful to all businesses, citizens,
and professionals," said DEP Sec-
retary Sole.
"This innovation will require a
new step in review by our teams
involved, and I am grateful to
them for building and maintain-


ing this new public service that
supports open government at its
best."
As part of DEP Secretary Sole's
efforts to improve customer ser-
vice, PASS offers a number of
choices to allow users to person-
alize their subscriptions.
PASS allows subscribers to cre-
ate and modify multiple profiles
for the same e-mail address, and
provides several ways tospecify
geographical area of interest.
For example, users can select
all activities inside chosen coun-
ties, within a specified distance
of an address such as a home, or
within ,a specified distance from
a given point on the map such as
vacant land.
In addition, subscribers can
request electronic notification for
11 different permit groups rep-
resenting 125 different types of
permits that DEP facilitates under
state regulatory law.
Earlier this year, DEP launched
an online survey to collect public
input and identify areas of im-
provement within the agency.
The survey is available on the


main page of the department's
Web site, www.dep.state.fl.us,
and a link to the survey is includ-
ed in all external e-mails from all
agency staff.
DEP Secretary Mike Sole also
appointed an ombudsman for the
agency last year, who oversees
DEP's Office of Public Services.
Last year, to support Gover-
nor Crist's open-government ef-
forts and the Open Government
Bill of Rights, a DEP team cre-
ated an "open government" Web
page to provide instant access to
the answers for frequently asked
questions with tailored contact
information.
For more information on the
Office of Public Services or to re-
quest public records, visit http://
www.dep.state.fl.us/secretary/
ps/default.htm.
To access PASS, visit http://
pass.dep.state.fl.us. For more in-
formation about DEP, visit www.
dep.state.fl.us.
To schedule a demonstration
of this new service, please con-
tact DEP at (850) 245-2112.


Keep pharmaceuticals out of our water


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and Florida
Department of Health (DOH) are
reminding Floridians to properly
dispose of unwanted medica-
tions. Disposing with household
trash r
ather than flushing down the
toilet or a drain helps reduce the
amount of pharmaceutical trac-
es in Florida's water bodies and
drinking water.
"Proper disposal of unwanted
medications helps protect Flori-
da's residents and visitors as well
as our natural resources," said'
DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"Florida's. drinking water
utilities have an exemplary track
record in delivering safe, afford-
able, high-quality, drinking wa-
ter.
"We will continue to work
with the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency and U.S. Geo-
logical Survey to study emerg-
ing chemicals and develop new
criteria so that we can continue


to ensure safe water for genera-
tions to come."
Many medications contain
compounds, also known as mi-
croconstituents, that are used
to enhance our quality of life by
protecting human health, en-
hancing consumer goods and
optimizing agricultural produc-
tion.
Microconstituents may be
found in very low concentrations
in surface water, ground water,
domestic wastewater, industrial
wastewater, agricultural runoff,
reclaimed water and other wa-
ters.
"While the issue of pharma-
ceuticals and personal care.prod-
ucts in water is not new, current
media coverage on the topic
may prompt concern among
consumers," said State Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte Ros,
MD, MPH.
"So far, these chemicals have
been found at extremely low
concentrations and current re-
search has not demonstrated an


impact on human health at the
trace levels at which they have
been found."
The amount of microconstitu-
ents can be reduced by properly
disposing of unwanted medica-
tions.
While flushing them down
the toilet or a drain prevents im-
mediate accidental ingestion,
it can impact our environment
because many wastewater treat-
ment systems, including septic
tanks, are not designed to re-
move many of these medica-
tions.
To properly dispose of un-
wanted household medications:
*Keep the medicines in the
original container. This will help
identify the contents if they are
accidentally ingested.
*Mark out your name and
prescription number for safety.
*For pills, add water or soda
to start dissolving them. For liq-
uids, add something inedible like
cat litter, dirt or cayenne pepper.
Close the lid and secure with


duct or packing tape
*Place the bottles) inside an
opaque container like a coffee
can or plastic laundry bottle.
*Tape that container closed.
*Hide the container in the
trash. Do not put in the recycle
bin.
Disposal of unwanted medi-
cations from commercial facili-
ties such as pharmacies, medical
facilities and veterinary opera-
tions are subject to different reg-
ulations than those that apply
to medications from household
uses.
Those commercial facilities
should contact DEP's Division
of Waste Management for guid-
ance.
For more information on the
proper disposal of unwanted
medications, visit http://www.
dep.state.fl.us/waste/categories/
medications/default.htm.

The expected wildfires...Where


As far back as November, local
residents were being advised that
this could be one of the worst
wildfire seasons ever.
At that time, the local Division
of Forestry area of Lee, Collier
and Hendry County was already
experiencing dryness readings as
high as those seen in April and
May.
With more dry weather fore-
cast, things could only be expect-
ed to get worse much worse.


But the worst did not material-
ize. Instead, we received a dose
of morning dew and fog, higher
than usual relative humidity and
.much more rain that expected.
Even a cold front that included a
killing frost through the area did
not make a difference.
. Wildfire activity has been be-
low normal.
"Typically, the Division will re-
spond to an average of 51 wild-
fires during the first three months


of the year," said Gerry Lacavera,
Wildfire Mitigation Specialist with
the Division. "So far, we have only
had 35 wildfires and all but six
were less than ten acres in size."
"Keep in mind," continued Mr.
LaCavera, "that people, not light-
ning, start wildfires this time of
year. I think a large part of wildfire
starts being lower than expected
is that people are listening to our
messages and are being much
more careful.

Training Center, was preceded

New book helps protect computer users


LaBELLE-The Ultimate
Guide to Internet Safety by Vic-
toria Roddel, owner and opera-
tor of the Cyber Criminals Most
Wanted website at http://www.
ccmostwanted.com since 1999,
highlights the parallels and over-
laps between real world crime
and internet crime.
Cybercrime prevention
should be as natural to every
internet user as crossing a street
safely.
Each internet user is respon-
sible for personal safety as they
are in the real world.
To maintain safety, each ilf-
ternet user,'lawmaker and law
enforcer should have a basic
understanding of how safety
can be compromised in regards
to family, money, identity and
electronic possessions.
This book explains how na-
tional policies and laws should
not only be blind to the tool
'used to plan and commit the


crime but should be formulated
to fairly balance the privacy, re-
spect, responsibilities, rights and
safety of every internet user.
Can we tell if we are: Trust-
ing someone who is not who
they say they are?
Willingly giving personal in-
formation to an imposter? com-
promising privacy?
Stealing when downloading?
Unintentionally boasting that
our electronic, identity and pos-
sessions are available for the
taking?
Besides explaining topics re-
lated to internet safety, The Ul-
timate Guide to Internet Safety
presents possible compromis-
ing safety situations with sug-
gestions for prevention.

County encourages young people to 'Kick Butts'


HENDRY-Young people from
Hendry County are joining thou-
sands of kids across the country
who are taking part in Kick Butts
Day (KBD). As part of the KBD
celebration, LaBelle and Clewis-
ton High School students are edu-
cating their peers on the number
of lives lost due to tobacco use
and exposure.
Throughout the year, youth
advocates take part in a variety
of activities to protect kids from
tobacco, including working with
elected officials to develop poli-
cies that reduce youth tobacco
use and exposure to secondhand
smoke and educating their peers


about tobacco companies' de-
ceptive marketing practices.
On April 2, elementary, middle
and high school students across
the country are organizing KBD
events to fight youth tobacco use.
Young people will participate in a
variety of KBD activities such as
surveying tobacco advertising in
their communities; urging local
officials to support anti-tobacco
ordinances; and tossing caps,
hats, jackets and other items car-
rying tobacco brand names into
dumpsters. In 2007, thousands
of kids carried out nearly 2,000
events. We expect this number to
increase in 2008.


"Kids are a powerful part of
the solution to reducing youth
tobacco use," said Matthew L.
Myers, president of the Campaign
for Tobacco-Free Kids, which co-
ordinates KBD. "For Kick Butts
Day 2008, kids are sending two
important messages: they want
the tobacco industry to stop tar-
geting them with advertising and
they want elected leaders at all
levels to do more to protect them
from tobacco."
Tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of death in the
United States, killing more than
400,000 people every year. Every
day, more than 4,000 kids try their


first cigarettes; another 1,000 kids
become addicted smokers.
The Washington, D.C.-based
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids
is one of the largest non-govern-
mental education and advocacy
initiatives ever undertaken to
decrease youth tobacco use in
the United States. The Campaign
strives to build a healthier future
for our children by reducing to-
bacco use and exposure to sec-
ondhand smoke.
For more information contact,
Valarie James at 863-674-4056 ext

site at www.kickbuttsday.org.


Lowell Teal's Promise to Poppy, good read


by Barbara Oehlbeck
A prolific and gifted native Flor-
ida writer is Lowell Teal, whose
fourth book in his "Bath Pond"
series has just been released.
The story revolves around a
flowing theme of hard work, ethi-
cal behavior, integrity, family val-
ues and unfailing stick-to-it-ness.
"Promise to Poppy's" main
character is Derek Davidson,
the hilarious musician who en-
tertains and inspires page after
page. Derek's musical status as
an entertainer is such that media
follows along to report his antics
and successes providing head-
lines like "Texas Rodeo Revival"
and "Entertainer Stuns Clergy."
Lowell Teal writes: Life's great-
est tragedy usually comes when
it's too late to prepare for what

8 Caloosa Belle, Thursday, March 27, 2008


As our society grows more so-
phisticated about the aging pro-
cess and the needs of those both
receiving and providing care to
the elderly, the days of the invis-
ible caregiver are rapidly coming
to an end. No longer do caregiv-
ers have to be isolated and alone,
neither seen nor heard.
Suddenly, seemingly out of no-
where, there are 55 million care-
givers in our nation and that num-
ber is growing on a daily basis.
The art of caregiving comes
from the heart. Yet, one still has to
be familiar with the elements that
comprise loving care---- both for
oneself and for the one to whom
you provide the care. There is so
much to understand arid so many
things,-to learn. Therefore, in an
effort to better educate people
regarding their caregiver roles,
a cooperative effort to provide
services for caregivers was es-
tablished in November, 2001. Lee
Memorial Health System, Hope
Hospice, The Alvin A. Dubin Al-
zheimer's Resource Center, The
Parish Nurse Program, and the
Area Agencies on Aging in South-
west Florida, felt compelled to
become involved. The ability to
collaborate between these differ-
ent agencies to create a team ap-
+ proach is what makes the CARE
Program unique.
The Caregiver Assistance and
Regional Education Program,
the "CARE" Program, is part of
the National Family Caregiver
Support Program (NFCSP). The
CARE Program is designed to
deliver Outreach, Education and
Pre-Admission Emergency Re-
spite Counseling to Southwest
Florida. The seven counties in
Southwest Florida, also known
as Public Service Area 8 (PSA
8), serve as home to more.than
402,400 persons over the age
of 60. This age group makes up
approximately 33 percent of PSA
8's total population. The CARE
Program provides services for
caregivers in Lee, Charlotte, Sara-
sota, Desoto, Collier, Hendry and
Glades counties. This program is
designed to provide caregiving
individuals and family members
free comprehensive education.
This program will enable caregiv-
ers to provide enhanced care for
their loved ones while allowing
the caregiver to better maintain
his or her emotional and physical
well being.
The overall objectives of the
CARE Program are:
To begin linking to a support
group which will help assure con-
tinuity of care and provide oppor-
tunities for support and sharing
among peers.
To decrease the stress of con-

fundraising

dinner

The community is invited to a
barbecue to benefit Community
Rebuilding Ecumenical Work-
force (CREW), helping rural Hen-
dry and Glades counties recover
from Hurricane Wilma and pre-
pare for future disasters. At the
dinner the group will also be rec-
ognizing their biggest funders for
2007.
The fundraiser will be held
on Saturday, April 26, from 4-8
p.m. at the First United Method-
ist Church, located at 310 W. Os-
ceola Ave., Clewiston, FI 33440.
Please RSVP by: 04/23/08 at (863)
983-2390
In addition to coming to the
event, they are also looking for
donations for the silent auction to
be held during the fundraiser, as
well as for deserts for the desert
auction.


flicting demands brought about
by the change in responsibilities,
which often accompanies the pri-
mary caregiving role.
To increase knowledge and
understanding of the aging pro-
cess which can be used to better
understand and meet the chal-
lenges and concerns of aging.
To understand the relation-
ship between chronic illness and
behavior changes and to develop

with challenging behaviors.
To increase knowledge of
medications and their proper use
and develop more effective doc-
tor/patient communication and
prevention of additional health
problems.
To acquire training in per-
sonal care skills that will provide
more qualified care to loved ones
and allow more confidence and
less frustration to primary care-
givers.
*To build positive communi-
cation skills that can be used to


meet caregiving challenges.
*To acquire additional com-
munication skills which can be
used to facilitate positive .family
communication.

coping strategies for dealing with
stress of conflicts between these
demands.
-- To enhance decision-making
skills for present and future care
planning.

formal and informal support
groups and resources available in
the community.

Documentary helps cut energy bills


Program
La Oficina del Alguacil y la
Oficina del Abogado del Estado
-estin coordinando un program
para muchachos que tiene el
prop6sito de gastar menos ti-
empo en papelerfa, tiempo en la
corte y asi los Oficiales le pueden
dar a los muchachos un descanso
cuando estos lo necesiten.
El program del Condado de
Hendry llamado Citaci6n Civil esta
basado en un concept de "jus-
ticia restauradora" que trata de
restaurar el sufrimiento y la p6r-
dida de las vfctimas ensefiando a
los ofendedores que ellos pueden
ser personas fitiles despues de re-
formarse por el crime que han
cometido.
Hendry es el 61ltimo Condado
en el Circuito Judicial 20 que va a
seguir el program de Citaciones
Civiles para Muchachos, El Con-
dado Glades no quiso participar.
En este program un estudi-
ante que ha estado involucrado
en una ofensa en la escuela se la
da citaci6n civil en vez de arrest,


lo cual significa que algunos deli-
tos deben ser juzgados como ca-
sos civiles no como delitos crimi-
nales. Al muchacho se le dan 50
horas de servicio comunitario
para reparar el dafio causado y si
lo hace exitosamente la mucha-
cha o el muchacho no serb ar-
restado ni tendri que seguir el
process a traves del sistema judi-
cial, sin embargo existen limits,
por ejemplo, si el muchacho no
sigui6 los procedimientos de la
Citaci6n Civil, entonces sera ar-
restado, se le pone en el expedi-
ente y si mas adelante esta peso-
nas quisera ser maestro, policia o
enlistarse en el military, va a tener
problems porque ya est& fichado
en el sistema judicial.
Para saber si el estudiante es
eligible para el program estos
son los delitos que pueden ir a cit-
aci6n civil: pleitos, asalto, golpes,
desorden, travesura criminal,
conduct desordenada, interrup-
ci6n de las classes y otras conduc-
tas pero si el estudiante ha estado
usando drogas, tabaco o alcohol


no va a ser eligible para la cit-
aci6n. Una vez que el estudiante
admite su delito inmediatamente
los padres son contactados por el
Official encargado que en Hendry
es Ty Marshall. El dijo: "Este es
un buen program que le ayuda
much a los muchachos que no
habian estado en problems an-
tes y se les da una oportunidad
antes de que vayan a la corte".
"Es una herramienta excelente
para nosotros".

Arrest
Durante el 13 y 14 de marzo
los Oficiales de Narc6ticos desm-
antelaron cuatro casas que se es-
taban usando para cultivar y pro-
cesar marijuana con el prop6sito
de venderla. Como resultado de
la orden de rastreo las siguientes
personas fueron arrestadas: David
J. McCarty de 28 afios quien pag6
una fianza de $45.500 y ya sali6
de la cArcel, Enrique Jimenez de
56 afios, Camilo Gonzalez de 32 y
Mario.Morejon.


LaBelle A new documentary
film designed to help consumers
cut their energy bills and improve
the quality of the environment
is touring the United States this
spring as many Americans face
record-high heating & air condi-
tioning bills. The public is invited
to view Kilowatt Ours: A Plan to
Re-Energize America during a
special screening at Carlson Me-
morial United Methodist Church.
This acclaimed film advocates en-
ergy conservation methods and
clean, renewable power sources
available as alternatives to the
high costs of energy. Come to
Carlson Memorial United Meth-
odist Church, 310 Campbell St,
LaBelle, Sunday, April 6, at 6 p.m.
Admission is free but donations
will be accepted.
Kilowatt Ours is the story of
filmmaker and conservationist
Jeff Barrie's journey across the
U.S. to document our energy-re-
lated problems and present prac-


tical, cost-saving solutions for con-
sumers. Widespread problems
revealed in Kilowatt Ours include
mountaintop removal, air pollu-
tion, global warming, childhood
asthma and mercury contamina-
tion. The film illustrates practical
solutions that help homeowners
save more than $600 per year on
energy bills while helping the en-
vironment and protecting human
health.
"I hope this film sparks an
energy conservation movement
across America, while boosting
demand for clean renewable
power sources," says filmmaker
Jeff Barrie, who will lead a dis-
cussion following the screening.
"Many people are unaware that
we're still burning coal to gen-
erate most of our electricity in
.America, creating serious conse-
quences to the environment and
human health. The need for con-
servation is urgent," says Barrie.
According to the Department


of Energy, the average American
home consumes more than 900
kilowatt-hours of electricity each
month. More than 50% of our na-
tion's electricity is generated in
coal-fired power plants, amount-
ing to nearly 6 tons of coal burned
to generate electricity for the typi-
cal American home each year.
By using products marked with
EPA's Energy Star label, purchas-
ing power generated from renew-
able resources, more effectively
insulating our homes and utiliz-
ing natural energy sources like
sunlight, wind and geothermal
power, consumers can reduce
the impact of their energy usage,
while saving money.

dia Resources" page at Kilowat-
tOurs.org. DVDs are available for

Hendry family planning annual 2 I


reunion for Saturday, March 29


by Barbara Oehlbeck

It's been said and with good
reason that the Hendrys are
spread over Florida like dew over
Dixie!
If there's even a drop of Hendry
blood in your family you've prob-
ably been to an annual Hendry
Family Reunion an event that's
been going on for over a third of a
century, that is 36 years.
Probably the most notable
Hendry was Captain Francis As-
bury Hendry for whom the coun-
ty of Hendry is named and there
are other numerous namesakes,
more or less, locally and through-
out Florida.
For many years the mid-spring
Hendry Reunion was held at the
home place farm of Jody and
Lloyd Hendry in Buckingham on
the Orange River. Then it was
moved to the landmark Hendry
House itself in LaBelle alongside
the Caloosahatchee. And now
this year it's to be held in a new
location, the Riverside Commu-
nity Center at 3061 East Riverside
Drive, Fort Myers, two blocks
north of Palm Beach Boulevard
on March 29 beginning at 11 a.m.
There will be a covered dish din-
ner at noon so those attending
are asked to bring their favorite
dish to share with the group,
vegetables, meat, salad, desert or
anything in between.
Over the years many people
have asked how and when the
Hendry Family Reunion got start-
ed. The Hendry family has always
had reunions in one way or an-
other just as most families have.
Having arrived in Florida in the
early 1850s, within a generation
or two the Hendry family married
into many other pioneer Florida
families. In those days is was not
uncommon for families to have a
dozen or more children. From the
surviving stories that have been
passed down Ve know that these
early Hendry families enjoyed get-
ting together.
The Hendry reunion of today
grew out of the desire to join to-


gether for camaraderie and to
share and celebrate our heritage.
In an article on the reunion in an
edition of Lee Living magazine in
1991 Lloyd Hendry told of the re-
union's beginning: "I had a very
gregarious, outgoing aunt who
came to our family Easter par-
ties. She hunted Easter eggs and
played games with the children,
told family stories to young and
old alike. Fact is...she was the life
of those parties! Her name was
Isabel Hendry Kelley. Well, at one
of those parties, we were all vis-
iting, having a good time, when
suddenly Aunt Isabel said, "Why
don't we have a family reunion?"
Although she died before the
first reunion was held the seed
was planted which resulted in
the first reunion and covered dish
dinner being held at the Hendry
farm on June 4, 1972.
Since that time the reunion
has been held each year on the
Saturday after.Easter.
At the reunion we award a
prize to the youngest and oldest
attendee, and those who traveled
the furthest to attend. We also
recognize all out of town guests
and any first time attendees.
One accomplishment the fam-
ily can be especially proud of is
the F.A. Hendry Memorial Schol-
arship Fund, a tax deductible fund
at Edison College. The fund was
established in 1984 from the sale
of land to the city once owned
by Captain F. A. Hendry that was
still in his name. The fund started
with $61,800 and has grown to
over $400.000 through donations
and investments. Only the inter-
est is used for scholarships, so the
fund will be a perpetual tribute to
Capt. F. A. Hendry, who during his
lifetime, donated land for schools
and churches.
The Hendrys and their kin are
spread all over these southern
Florida counties and beyond. Fact
is, attendees have come from all
over the U. S. to be a part of the
biggest reunion in the state of
Florida.
If there's any doubt about the
numbers of Hendrys in this part


of the world, simply look in any
phone book or mention the name
of Hendry to some of your neigh-
bors.
One notable Hendry is Smiley
Hendry who has lived all his life
in Glades County. And there are
those who say that probably most
of that life has been lived one way
or another in and around Fisheat-
ing Creek at Palmdale.
Smiley has been called, with
respect and admiration, the "Na-
tive Historian of the Creek" which
is known as the most beautiful
waterway in the Sunshine State.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
Rest the eyes
Blink forcefully
Use a humidifier
Instill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATION SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure on the back of
the things.
The back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keep the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity.
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line.
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discoinfort and may rob productivity Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively.

Child hospitalized


Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
A 1 1/2-year-old boy was trans-
ported to the LaBelle EMS station
March 22, then airlifted first to Lee
Memorial Hospital, then to Jack-
son Memorial Hospital suffering
from burns on his lower back.
The child apparently fell into a
campfire while camping with his
family at Okalooacoochee Slough
State Forest.
According to the sheriff's re-
port, Cpl. Olvera was dispatched
to the intersection of CR 832 and


SR 29 at about 1:30 p.m. to assist
medics who were treating the
child. Jonathan Buck, for burns.
The report states that the child
had been pulling a wagon about
six-to-eight feet away from the
fire while his father was barbecu-
ing. The father turned away from
his son for just a few seconds be-
fore the child began screaming.
Jeryl Buck grabbed his son while
his wife called for emergency
personnel. They then drove to
the intersection of CR 832 and SR
29 where they met medics Pam


Minor injuries reported


Four people were transported
to area hospitals after a collision
at CR 78 and Cemetery Road Fri-
day, March 21, at about 6:57 p.m.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, A 2002 Ford pick up
truck, driven by 16-year-old Catri-
na Flowers of Port Charlotte, was
westbound on CR 78, while a 1993
GMC UT, driven by 25-year-old
Heriberto Herrera of LaBelle, was
eastbound on CR 78. Ms. Flowers
failed to yield to oncoming east-
bound traffic on CR 78 and began
to make a left turn onto south-


bound Cemetery Road. The front
of her vehicle collided with the
right front of the Herrera vehicle
at the intersection. Ms. Flowers,
who suffered minor injuries, and
her passenger, Miranda Davis, 26,
of LaBelle, who sustained serious
injuries, were transported to Le-
High Regional Medical Center.
Mr. Herrera and his passenger,
Jose Herrera, 27, who both suf-
fered minor injuries, were trans-
ported to Hendry Regional Medi-
cal Center.

Easter fun
Saturday, March 22, 2008 a GREAT day for an Easter Egg Hunt for the first ever Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt with over 1,000
eggs hidden by the West Glades Middle School Builder's Club for the 150+/- children who participated. Thanks to the
Builder's Club, the LaBelle High School Key Club and the Kiwanian members, the event was a fun beginning. To begin the
event, Pastor Zimmerman offered a prayer of thankfulness and blessed everyone involved. Prizes were given to children
according to what they discovered in their eggs. The Easter Bunny visit added that special touch for more pictures with
the children.
