Nature Park right-of-way questioned


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Riverbend Estates residents
continue to stand firm in their
efforts to keep from sharing the
access road to their community
with a proposed 176-acre pas-
sive recreational park. The park
is planned by the City of LaBelle
for the north side of the Caloo-
sahatchee River. The city entered
a 25-year lease agreement with
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) for the
property on April 30, 1991, with
five year renewables. Last year
the city received an extension


to get a park plan together for
the property, which is in Glades
County.
The proposed park would en-
hance visioning plans for the en-
tire downtown area of LaBelle,
just across the river. The two
could blend together for regional
effect.
Many Riverbend residents say
they are not opposed to the park,
but are adamant that their access
road may not legally be used by
anyone else except themselves
and SFWMD, which has the ease-
ment beneath the pavement.
SFWMD's right-of-way does not


translate to access for others to
the park site, they say.
In fact, they point out that,
after Hurricane Wilma, residents
had to pay to clear out their own
debris because no other en-
tity could use the private access
*road.
Residents' concerns came
to the fore at the park advisory
board's regular meeting on
March 20 when the board voted
to accept a survey requested by
the City of LaBelle commission-
ers. The survey, by Aim Engi-
neering, states that the right-of-
way extends along the current

Ribbon cut in Port LaBelle


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
It was a long time coming
but Port LaBelle Utilities cel-
ebrated the opening of its new
state-of-the-art water.plant on
Monday, March 24, with tours
and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Planning for the new system,
which began limited operation
late last July, started in 1999.
Now the new membrane soft-
ening *system has completely
taken over from the old lime
softening plant.
The original plant was built
in 1972 as part of General De-
velopment's Port LaBelle proj-
ect.
The new plant can deliver
900,000 gallons of drinking wa-
ter per day and may be convert-
ed to produce up to 1.8 million
gallons per day, just with the
addition of compact treatment
modules. PLUS provides water
to some 3,600 customers at this
time.


There many things to cele-
brate that day. Besides the offi-
cial opening of the plant, PLUS
was also celebrating the com-
pletion of water lines to Banyan
Village, which will open up that
entire section to development.
When Hendry County agreed
to operate PLUS in the mid-
1990s, it also entered a con-
tractual agreement to provide
service to Banyan Village on
the east side of Port LaBelle.
In recent years, property own-
ers in Banyan Village fought to
have those lines installed.
The ceremonies also includ-
ed recognition of the 11-year
term of advisory board mem-
ber Harold Reecer. Mr. Reecer,
who served as chairman, be-
gan his tenure when Hendry
County took over the utility af-
.ter General Development and
then Atlantic Gulf Communities
went bankrupt. At that time,
the county stepped in to oper-
ate the utility.
The new $5,974,998 plant


was funded with a $3,689,000
loan and $2,285,998 grant from.
the Department of Agriculture,
Rural Utilities Program in Wash-
ington, D.C.
The plant was designed by
Craig Smith and built by Encore
Construction Company under
the supervision of the Fort My-
ers office of Tetra Tech.
PLUS Director Roger Greer
said the plant currently gets
its water from the Sandstone
Aquifer. When more capac-
ity is required, PLUS may
need to change to another
water source. Mr. Greer said
he would prefer to stay in the
Sandstone Aquifer because it
provides higher quality water. If
they must change sources, they
could end up with brackish wa-
ter, which Would force PLUS to
go to a deep injection system to
dispose of the brine left from
treatment. That, he said, would
be much more expensive.


Nasgrass event kicks off Friday


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Vroom vroom! They're
loud; they're fast; they're fun -
they're Nasgrass lawnmower
races and they're right here in
LaBelle.
The Hendry-LaBelle Mow-
erSports Park is the place to be
this Friday for a lawnmower
three race series with national
appeal. The US Lawn Mower
Racer Association (USLMRA)
will put on the special event.
Friday, April 4, at 8 p.m.
the North American Society of
Grass Racers and Sod Slingers
(NASGRASS) will present the
STA-BIL Nasgrass Southern


Shoot Out. Admission is $5 for
adult spectators, children under
12 are free. The action begins at
8 p.m. Proceeds benefit Healthy
Start Southwest Florida to help
premature and low birth weight
babies in Hendry County. Fans
can get a superticket for $10
that includes a pit pass.
The Mowersports Park is
located at 1155 Pratt Blvd.
across from the health depart-
ment. Gates open at 6 p.m.
The concession proceeds also
go to Healthy Start Southwest
Florida.
Don't forget to bring your
lawnchairs to enjoy this first-ev-
er national event. Remember,


it's a family affair!
According to Sid Whiteside,
Nasgrass president and FLA
treasurer, lawnmower racing
has a big future in LaBelle,
with what has been called the
premier Nasgrass course in the
country.
The county has leased the
old BMX park to Nasgrass and
two big races have already
been run there Jan. 6 and on
Swamp Cabbage Saturday, Feb.
23. Mr. Whiteside said he is
committed to making LaBelle
the home base for Nasgrass in
Florida and home of the nation-

Riverbend Estates access road
from SR 29 to the development's
gate.
At the City of LaBelle's March
meeting, Aim Engineering con-
sultant David Whidden reported
that his company surveyed for a
right-of-way to the site and con-
cluded that the existing road to
Riverbend Estates is the official
right-of-way to the property. He
said the right-of-way is free of
conflict.
LaBelle Mayor Paul Puletti is
equally adamant that the survey
shows the right-of-way may be
used to access the park site.


Advisory board member from
Glades County Buddy Strickland
urged that no serious work be
done on the site until the ease:
ment issue is resolved even
though both the City of LaBelle
and the park advisory board have
already accepted the survey. .
Residents have a copy of a
final judgment signed by 20th
Circuit Judge James R. Adams

Man charged




with murder


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The victim of a vicious attack
Saturday, March 22, was pro-
nounced dead at Lee Memorial
Hospital at 8:13 p.m. Wednes-
day, March 26. Charges against
the man authorities believe is
.responsible for the attack have
now escalated to First Degree
Murder Premeditated.
According to Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff's reports, 23-year-old
Luis Orocko had argued with
Jose Antonio Villareal, the'
owner of Car Care Mechanic
Shop, located at 260 N. Bridge
Street, over the cost of repairs
to'Orocko's 1994 brown Ford
Crown Victoria.
Reports indicate that Orocko
remained at the repair shop


after everyone else had left.
Orocko was arrested March 23
after deputies searching for his
vehicle found him driving east
on CR 78. He was stopped and
transported to the HCSO where
he was questioned and origi-
nally arrested for attempted
murder.
The 75-year-old victim had
been found sitting in a plastic
lawn chair at his place of busi-
ness, bleeding from the head.
He was alive but unresponsive.
The bay doors to his shop were
open as well as a smaller door
to the office.
EMS transported Mr. Villa-
real to Lee Memorial Hospital
where he remained in critical
condition until his death.

closely with the cities and county
to plan for the law enforcement
challenges of growth.
Mr. Nelson said that, if elected,
he would provide a five-year strate-
gic plan to the commission outlin-
ing issues impacting the commu-
nity and actions to meet them.
Mr. Nelson began his career in
law enforcement as an auxiliary
deputy in Collier County. In 1981
he was hired full-time, becoming a
shift supervisor two years later. He
began coordinating and conduct-
ing Neighborhood Watch meet-
ings for the district lieutenant and
received formal training from the
Florida Attorney General's Office in
crime prevention techniques.
In 1986 he became a full time
Crime Prevention Deputy main-
taining and developing new
neighborhood watch groups. He
also brought residential and com-
mercial security surveys to the
residents of Collier County as a free
public service, designed and mar-
keted the S.A.F.E.R. (Secure Ac-
tion for Every Resident) program
in with the Naples Area Board of
Realtors and the Collier County
Builders and Contractors Associa-
tion. As supervisor of the Collier
County Sheriff's Explorer Program,
the group took first place in state
and national competitions.
In 1989 Mr. Nelson became lieu-
tenant in command of the Golden
Gate District to address the increas-
ing burglary problem. Golden
Gate, a district of over two hundred
square miles and a population of
over 45 thousand, is primarily es-
tate-type homes, with acreage, of
a working class residency. Golden
Gate District had experienced dou-
ble-digit increases in daytime bur-
glaries requiring innovative patrol
techniques. Mr. Nelson implement-
ed a program using the sheriff's
civilian Community Service Depu-
ties (CSD's) as a patrol function.
They drove marked pickup trucks
equipped with radios and noted
all tag numbers of vehicles driving
in the areas they patrolled, radio-
ing in any suspicious vehicles. The
CSD's were directly responsible for
several captures. Deputy sheriffs,
directed .to patrol neighborhoods
as a priority rather than highways,
supplemented this program. Mr.
Nelson's first year resulted in a 4
percent reduction in burglaries.
During his tenure in Golden
Gate, Nelson was nominated for
the "Outstanding Golden Gate Citi-
zen" award and was presented a'
-- plaque by Senator Fred Dudley for
aggressive and progressive appli-
cation of the newly instituted Do-
mestic Violence statutes.
In 1993 Mr. Nelson was trans-
ferred into the Fugitive Warrants
Bureau to address the increasing
number of active warrants remain-
ing on file. He directed members
of the FWB to re-enter all active
warrants into the Florida Crime
Information Center (FCIC) which
led to the service of Collier County
Sheriff's warrants nationwide.
In 1999 he became Chief Bailiff
at the Collier County Courthouse,
supervising over 30 full and part
time bailiffs. He assisted with the
design and implementation of a
state-of-the-art security system in
the courthouse, trained bailiffs
and courthouse security guards.
He developed a 60-member emer-
gency response team that could be
deployed in and around the court-
house in a matter of minutes.
In 2001 he became'Field Super-
visor to lead the four Field Lieuten-
ants in supervising the entire coun-
ty after normal business hours,
having the authority of the Sheriff
after hours. He was responsible
for all operations to include, road
patrol, corrections, communica-
tions and criminal investigations.
In 2002, Mr. Nelson redesigned
the Sheriff's district boundaries in
preparation for a new district to be
opened in the eastern Golden Gate

Continuing Quality Surgical Services Close to Home, HRMC Recruits Additional Surgeon.

.4-,0e6a
'i^&Jr^^^HK-9MbBED M.D. SSIWGESNERALSURGEON^^^^^^^


Surgeries are booming at Hendry Regional Medical Center, so much that the
hospital has recruited a second surgeon, Dr. Darayes Mobed, who
immediately formed a team with Dr. Leonard Carroll, the existing surgeon at
HRMC. Dr. Mobed began using his scalpel 'at Hendry Regional on March
14th. In the midst of the increased surgical volume, he and Dr. Carroll will
complement each other with their wealth of knowledge and combined
surgical skills.


Dr. Mobed is originally from the southern Asian country of Pakistan. He attended high school in
Scarsdale, New York as an exchange student. Following high school, Dr. Mobed returned to Karachi,
Pakistan, where he trained to become a surgeon. After five years of studies, Dr. Mobed moved to
Miami Beach, Florida and completed his surgical internship at Mt. Sinai Medical Center. He then
finished his four-year residency program at New York University Hospital. Dr. Mobed has been
practicing surgery for the past 30 years at Orange Regional Medical Center in Goshen, New York.


After Dr. Mobed's many years of education and extensive surgical experience in New York, he decided
to leave the state in pursuit of a warmer climate, looking specifically at south Florida. During their
initial visit to Clewiston and LaBelle, he and his wife, Goher, fell in love with Hendry County, and have
since purchased a home in Clewiston. 'They have also been involved in many community activities.


Dr. Mobed provides an array of surgical procedures. He performs laparoscopic removal of the gall
bladder-and appendix, plus hernia repairs, vasectomies and tubal ligations. He also does
circumcisions, hemorrhoid surgeries and many gynecological procedures such as ovarian cysts,
hysterectomies and others. In addition, Dr. Mobed performs vascular catheter access for dialysis
surgery, a surgical procedure that requires a special catheter to be inserted into the vein before
kidney dialysis. He also does various types of breast surgeries, including sentinel lymph-node
biopsy, a procedure that removes lymph-node tissue for the detection of cancer cells.

Dr. Mobed has stated that his ultimate goal is to use surgery as a
means of improving the overall health of his patients, while minimizing
pain on their road to recovery. He encourages the residents of Hendry
County to stay close to home for their surgical needs and allow him,

Witch's Brew

If you find it difficult to change
your dog's rabies tag with the "s"
hook, then put the tag on a cir-
cular key ring. You can change
the tag just like a key. These days
most of us pay by credit cards,
debit cards or automatic bill pay-
ing so it seems foolish to carry
a check book. Just keep a few
checks in your wallet for when
the need arises.
Take all your credit cards and
put them on a photo copier. Then
write the number you have to call
to cancel them If they are ever
stolen or lost you have all the info
ready. Keep this information in a
safe place.
To let small children and el-
derly people hold onto a glass
easier just wrap a couple of rub-
ber bands around it for traction.
The Chamber of Commerce
is getting ready for it's annual
$10,000 give-a-way dinner and


the theme is Pirates of the Carib-
bean. I almost have all of the parts
for my Captain Jack Sparrow cos-
tume. Even the beard. Just hope it
doesn't itch. I am getting a perm
this week so
naturally my hair is kind of
"ratty" looking.
My friend Randy has been on

him that it is illegal to harass the

to quiet him...But then what are

Letters to the Editor


Cow Politics
How strongly do you believe
in coincidences? It was just a few
weeks back that we were all in-
formed that one of our county
commissioners was resigning
from the county board due to the
press of other issues involving his
church and his cattle business.
Well, would you believe that a
few days later I received an article
in which a person went to great
lengths to explain political sys-
tems by way of comparisons with
cow ownerships.
Well, to say the least, my' first
reaction was that this would have
to be a real stretch of the imagina-
tion, but I went ahead and read it
anyway.
And strangely enough it made
sense in a convoluted way, if you
don't take it too seriously.
Here is how the author arrived
at the conclusions that politics
can be explained as relevant to
cow ownership and manage-
ment, by comparing it to different
political systems.
SOCIALISM: You have two
cows. You keep one and give one
to your neighbor.
COMMUNISM: You have two
cows. The government takes
them both and provides you with
milk.
FASCISM: You have two cows.


The government takes them and
sells you the milk.
BUREAUCRACY: You have
two cows. The government takes
them both, shoots one, milks the
other, pays you for the milk, and
, then pours it down the drain.
CAPITALISM: You have two
cows. You sell one and buy a
bull.
CORPORATE: You have two
cows. You sell one, force the
other to produce the milk of four
cows, then act surprised when it
drops dead.
DEMOCRACY: You have two
cows. The government taxes you
to the point that you must sell
them both in order to pay the
taxes to support a man in a for-
eign country who has only one
cow which was a gift from your
government.
After reading this, and at the
risk of sounding intelligent, which
obviously would destroy any
semblance of my limited integrity,
I suddenly had an epiphany.
Until then, I had always be-
lieved that the "BULL" associated
with politics was an acquired be-
havioral character anomaly, not
a known congenital fallacy, to-
tally proportionate to the political
purveyor's length of exposure to
the political process, and the re-
sultant proximity and association


with the inherent "BULL."
As is so often the case, if you
live long enough, there will most
often be something in your expe-
rience that allows for comparison.
In my case it was a statement that
I remember my Father saying on
the topic of politics.
As I remember it he said, "Do-
ing the job right the first time gets
the job done, but doing it wrong,
over and over, provides job secu-
rity."
So, on that note, at the risk of
milking this subject dry, let's see
what, if anything, we are to make
out of the current herd of bovine
ballot contenders stampede,
called the campaign, to the White
House.
It occurs to me that someone
less diplomatically inclined than
me might be saying that the en-
tire herd has morphed into, as
in Obama's case, a "BARACKA-
BRAHMAN. In Clinton's case, a
"HILLARY-HEREFORD", and in
McCain's case, an "ANGUS-Mc-
CAIN", thereby proving, once and
now, -that when it comes to "real
change" it's all in the "BULL" of
your choice.
And just when you thought it
couldn't get worse, I'll close by
saying if you're betting on who
comes out on top, put your mon-
ey on the biggest "BULLCHIP-


PER."
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville
SLaBelle

Whom to vote for
I'm a Pennsylvania raised retir-
ee who sometimes wears a Dixie
headband, so imagine my reac-
tion when Barack Obama didn't
condemn the Rev. Wright for his
famous sermon.
I went online and watched the
entire 36 minute "A more perfect
Union" speech on You tube. What
I heard was an honest explana-
tion why he won't turn his back
on his old friend, Rev Wright.
It challenged my white per-
spective on black and white is-
sues but didn't insult my intel-
ligence. I couldn't find anything
phony or biased.
We have three candidates for
President. Two are white like me
and say what they think I want to
hear. The other guy is black and
tells the truth even though I don't
always agree with him.
I'll be voting in two weeks by
absentee ballot for the Pennsyl-
vania primary. So whom should I
vote for? I'll look forward to any
advice in the Caloosa Belle Letters
to the Editor.

Financial FOCUS


Will presidential election affect the financial climate?


As you are no doubt aware,
2008 is a presidential election
year. As a citizen, you may well
have a great deal of interest in the
election. But how about as an in-
vestor? How does an election year
affect the investment climate?
And again from the perspective
of an investor does it matter who
wins?
To begin with, let's examine
how the stock market reacted in
the past to the selection of a pres-
ident. The Dow Jones Industrial
Average rose in nine of the past
11 presidential election years,
with an average gain of slightly
more than nine percent. So it's
clear that, for the most part, the
market has done pretty well when
America goes to the polls.
Does the election or re-elec-
tion of a president just make us
more optimistic, leading us to
invest more heavily and thereby
drive up the markets? Probably
not. In reality, many factors such
as corporate profits, geopoliti-


cal concerns, interest rates and
inflation drive stock prices. And
this is true in all years, whether
an election is held or not. Conse-
quently, stock returns from past
presidential election years, while
impressive, cannot serve as a reli-
able predictor of what the market
might do in 2008.
Now, let's turn to the next
question: As an investor, how will
the outcome of the election affect
you? There's not really a simple
answer. In the past, the stock
market has performed well and
performed poorly -under both
Democrats and Republicans. Of
course, candidates of both parties
will have different priorities and
try to enact different economic
agendas, and these priorities may
have some impact although one
that's notoriously hard to predict
- on different market sectors. In
short, no one can accurately fore-
cast the effect of this November's
election on the financial markets,
and that won't change even after


the nominees are known.
Instead of pondering the
"what-ifs" involved in a presiden-
tial election, you're much better
off following some tried-and-true
investment strategies. Here are a
few to consider:
Keep on investing. World
events may be good or bad, and
the stock market may be up or
down but no matter what hap-
pens, the most successful inves-
tors stay in the market. Look for
quality investments and hold them
until either your needs change, or
the investments themselves un-
dergo some type of transforma-
tion.
Know your risk tolerance. If
you're losing sleep at night over
your investments, you're prob-
ably taking on more risk than
the amount with which you are
comfortable. At the same time, if
your investments are putting you
to sleep, they may be too conser-
vative, which could mean they're
not providing the growth neces-


sary to help you meet your goals.
Strive for a balance that fits your
investment personality.
Think long-term. If you're
constantly adjusting your invest-
ment mix in response to short-
term events, you'll probably rack
up big commissions and you
almost certainly won't make the
necessary progress toward your
important objectives, such as a
comfortable retirement. So, train
yourself to ignore daily or weekly
or monthly price fluctuations and
keep your eyes on the far horizon.
If you've chosen the right invest-
ments, they should be designed to
help you work towards your goals
in exchange for your patience.
This November, don't forget to
vote. But before and after Election
Day, cast your ballot for solid in-
vestment technique.

Guest Commentary


The dangers of an eternal disconnect


By Pastor Les Morgan
Caloosa Baptist Church,
LaBelle
If you have a cell phone (and
who doesn't?) you have experi-
enced the frustrations of getting
disconnected from an impor-
tant call. I have, and it is enough
to make me want to throw the
phone out the window!
For me, the situation is usu-
ally something like this... just as
some vital information is being
given, the reception level drops
to zero. I am unaware that my
phone has shit down, so I keep
asking the person to please speak
up, all to no avail. A disconnect
has occurred. To resume that con-
versation another connection has
to happen.
What is true for cell phones is
also true for people. When we are
disconnected from God person-
ally there is a failure to obtain and


secure life's true purpose. While
there are many ways to get dis-
connected from God, the results
are always the same frustration,
a sense of beirg alone and unset-
tledness within.
The English historian Thomas
Macauley warned the American
people decades ago that our
Constitution ran the risk of being
"all sail and no anchor." In other
words, the lofty ideals of the Con-
stitution would only have merit as
they remained anchored to moral
absolutes. George Washington
remarked, "It is impossible to
rightly govern the world without
God and the Bible."
As opposed to being firmly
anchored to the truth of God, we
as a society are being blown back
and forth by the winds of secu-
lar ideologies which threaten to
shipwreck our hearts, homes and
nation. This is why Alan Bloom,
professor of Philosophy at Uni-


versity of Chicago, has indicted
the American educational system
for failing to teach moral truth
to its students. In his best-selling
book, The Closing of the Ameri-
can Mind, he points out that our
educators utilize a new language
of "value relativism" which pre-
vents us from "teaching with any
conviction about good and evil."
He goes on to say that our univer-
sities offer "disconnected disci-
plines" without a focus on devel-
oping the whole person. Hence,
students obtain degrees, but are
"unfurnished persons" lacking
the moral base needed for sound
judgment.
The family has forsaken its
once-held, position as the seat of
religious and moral teaching. The
eternal conflict of good and evil
has now been replaced with the
language, "I'm okay, you're okay."
Instead of paying for our choices,
Bloom tells us that "America to-


day has no-fault automobile ac-
cidents, no-fault divorces, and is
moving with the aid of modern
philosophy toward no-fault choic-
es." As a result, most Americans
are dissatisfied with the moral
tenor of the times.
According to the Princeton
Research Center, 64- percent of
Americans are dissatisfied with
ethics and morals. Seventy-three
percent are dissatisfied with the
level of honesty and standards.
Eighty-three percent are dissatis-
fied with care for the poor and
needy.
In times of moral confusion,
we hold to' the moral absolutes
found in God's word (read Psalm
19: 7-11). Let us resolve anew
to keep our faith and values an-
chored firmly to the unchanging
word of God.
Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of
Caloosa Baptist Church located
200 yards behind Flora & Ella's.


Hospice promotes National Healthcare Decisions Day


-"(Fort Myers, Fla.) Hope
Hospice and Community Ser-
vices, along with a number of
other healthcare organizations
across the country, is leading an
effort to highlight the importance
of advance healthcare decision-
making an effort that has cul-
minated in the formal designa-
tion of April 16,,2008 as National
Healthcare Decisions Day.
Throughout southwest Flori-
da, more and more families are
talking about the importance of
end-of-life care and the need to
plan for it.
Pastors, Counselors, lawyers,
physicians and others all report
that these are crucial to the well
being of the entire family.
Hope Hospice and Communi-
ty Services provides information
and tools for people to talk com-
fortably about their end-of-life
wishes with family, friends and
healthcare providers.
According to Hope President
and CEO Samira K. Beckwith, Ad-
vance Directives are simple forms
that are records of your choices,


goals and instructions for your
future medical care in the event
you become unable to speak for
yourself.
"This is much more than sim-
ply getting your records in order,"
she added.
"This is one of the greatest
gifts that a person can give to
their family. Dying is inevitable,
but leaving your family with dif-
ficult, heartbreaking decisions
is not. Planning ahead will save
them from a heavy burden and
will give them peace of mind
when they need it most."
Hope's Advance Directives
materials can be found at www.
hopehospice.org.

Advance Directives
have several
components,
including:

SA health care power of attor-
ney or surrogate that allows you
to name a person you trust to


make your health care decisions if
you cannot make them yourself.
A living will a statement
about your desires to have or
not to have your life prolonged
by extraordinary measures if you
have a terminal or incurable ill-
ness or if you are in a vegetative
state.
A declaration of an anatomi-
cal gift, allowing you to make a
gift by will, organ donor card or
other document.
A booklet with materials
similar to Hope's Advance Di-
rectives, known as Five Wishes,
is available from the Aging with
Dignity organization in Tallahas-
see, at- www.agingwithdignity.
org.
"At Hope, our role is not to
make decisions for patients or
families, nor sit in judgment of
their choices," Beckwith said.
"Our desire is to inform and
,encourage everyone, to take
time to think seriously about his
or her values, choices and goals
regarding the end of life.
It's about love, and giving


each person the opportunity to
live until they die.
National Healthcare Deci-
sions Day is a good time to begin
having those conversations with
people you care about."
Hope Hospice and Communi-
ty Services is a not-for-profit, 501
(c)(3)-status community-based
health care agency, providing a
variety of services to all people
with complex needs related to
transitions, loss and end of life.
Hope is accredited by the
Community Health Accreditation
Program'(CHAP), the national
leader in improving the quality of
care in the home care industry,
and is a recipient of the nationally
acclaimed Circle of Life Award for
excellence and innovation in pa-
tient care. Licensed by the State
of Florida since 1984.

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, April 3, 2008


Park
Continued From Page 1
right-of-way from SR 29 to what
is now Riverbend's access gate.
The judgment further states that
"its spoil property may be used in
the future as a public park, nev-
ertheless a route along the river's
edge would interfere less with
any future use of said spoil area
than would a route more or less
through the middle of the Defen-
dants' [SFWMD] property."
Riverbend Estates resident Bil-
ly Marchal agreed the park could
be good for everyone but that it
needs to be done properly. He
questioned the way the survey
was done, saying it was a curso-
ry survey to simply reinforce the
city's view.
In addition, residents pointed
out that open access via the exist-
ing road would require approval
by 100 percent of Riverbend resi-


dents something they believe
would be impossible for park
proponents to deliver.
Other points
Removing spoil from the prop-
erty is another issue close to the
Riverbend residents. The spoil,
some 10-12 feet deep, may be
preserving an Indian mound and
perhaps an old Cracker house
-both of great interest to archae-
ologists and Florida historians.
They feel some development of
the site could greatly enhance
the Old Florida experience that
is rapidly disappearing from the
landscape.
Larry Luckey, Glades County
Property Appraiser and mem-
ber of the park advisory board,
agreed with member Margaret
England that the site could be an
outstanding archaeological find.
Board member Dr. Elkowitz
assured nervous Riverbend resi-
dents that no one plans to strip


the entire 1.1 mile spoil strip. He
said they would only explore it
for the archaeological sites, The
spoil may be used for trails, but
would not be taken off the prop-
erty.
Mayor Puletti assured the Riv-
erbend residents that there are
guidelines as to what the park
could look like and how it could


be utilized.
Mr. Luckey explained that few
Indian mounds are left south of
the river, but four or five may
still be found on the north side.
A mound would add interest and
an educational element to the
park, he noted, and compared
the proposed plan to the Indian
Mound Park in Ortona. The In-


dian Mound Park is open daily
with many visitors each year
and has never had any kind of
security problem, he told those
concerned about vandalism and
other possible illegal activity,
Some residents questioned
how the city could commit to
taking care of the access road
when it has a number of streets


inside the city that are not being
kept up.
Communication with Glades
County Building and Zoning
show that no action is required
by Glades County to allow the
site to be used as a park. The site
is classified as agricultural, which
allows for some recreational ac-
tivities.

history-making weekend and
welcome lawnmower racers
from across the country," said
Sid Whiteside, "The STA-BIL Se-
ries has become so popular that
Florida can now support three
national races in one weekend.
Plus, with the rising price of gas,
this makes the trip a good value
for our snow bird racers from up
North."
This weekend the Junior Pre-
pared Class, a new class on the

Murder
Continued From Page 1
Mr. Villareal .had suffered se-
vere wounds to the right eye,
forehead and upper right side of
the skull. The initial report states
that at least one of the wounds
seemed to be indicative of a se-
vere blow.
An autopsy performed March
27 showed the victim died as the
result of severe blunt force trauma
to the head, consistent with being
struck repeatedly with a round
metal bar or similar instrument.

Farm fresh fruit



stand reopens


ouomiinea pnoto
Former fruit stand owner Jim Barnett left and friend Con-
drad Gentry in front of the stand. Former employee Jes-
sie Montelongo has reopened the stand, located on SR 29
north of the river.


For years folks enjoyed buy-
ing produce from Jim Barnett.
His fruit stand on the -north
side of the river attracted locals,
snowbirds and residents from as
far away as Naples. Mr. Barnett
opened his popular stand on
Hwy. 29 in 1960.
Before 1-75 existed, people
had to travel SR 29 north. When
he had the stand, Mr. Barnett
used to tell his employee, Jesus
"Jessie" Montelongo, that some-
times traffic was bumper-to-
bumper. A lot of people would
stop on their way south, or their
way back up north.
In 1999 Mr. Barnett sold his
house and moved to Clearwa-
ter.
Mr. Montelongo, the new
owner of the stand, wants to
keep that tradition going and re-
opened the stand Friday, March
21. He worked for Mr. Bennett
since 1995-99 and his cousin
Tiburso helped with picking of
fruit and maintenance of the


house and lawn since 1988.
Jessie said vacationers from
all over the United States and
Canada still ask for Mr. Barnett
when they come through.
Jessie is taking what he
learned over the years and is
putting it back into the business.
He still wants to remember Mr.
Barnett, his friend of so many
years and reminisce with his old
customers about the man and
the business.
"I learned a lot from him. He
would tell me: 'Jessie, you have
to get up early to pick fresh fruit
every morning. People like fresh
fruit vine ripe produce.' I would
like to continue what I learned
from him and continue his work
of supplying LaBelle and its
tourists and winter vacationers
with farm fresh citrus and veg-
etables."
The stand, located at 1272
Hwy. 29,is open seven days a
week, from 9 a.m. till dark.

In Opal's Million Dollar Duck, summer stock actors Queenie

right, try to do the owner of a junque shop out of what they
think is a valuable painting. The owner, Opal (Barbara Bran-

This weekend will be the last per-
formance of John Patrick's com-
edy Opal's Million Dollar Duck
- and the last performance of the

Firehouse favorite Barbara
Brandenburg brings down the
house as Opal, the owner of a
junque shop. The fun begins
when summer stock actors Mi-
chelle Brunetto as Queenie and
David R. Johnson as Desmond
try every trick in the book to do
Opal out of a picture of a dead
mallard duck and an apple they
believe to be a painting by an old
master missing from a museum.
Another Firehouse regular, Linda


Reecer, helps keep the fun rolling
as Rosie.
Jim Bishop is the director and
Barb Miller the producer of this
year's final offering.
Production dates are April 3,
4, 5, 6, 2 with show times 7 p.m.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
and Sunday Matinee 2 p.m. Tick-
ets are $12 with reservation; $14

mail slot located at the ticket win-
dow for depositing reservation
checks for your convenience.

ervations for the final production

Delicious, good for the soul
What's better than winning a huge chocolate Easter bas-
ket? Sharing it with all your friends, of course. Property
Appraiser Kristina Kulpa did just that after she won this
incredible masterpiece in chocolate from Norman Love
Confections. Courthouse employees were invited up to
the Property Appraiser's Office to sample the delicate
treat last Friday. Courthouse security officer Hunt Nelms,
pictured with Ms. Kulpa, served as go-between in purchas-
ing the winning ticket. All proceeds from the ticket sales
went to the Ronald McDonald House, one of Ms. Kulpa's
favorite charities.

From the heart

Salvation Army Week, supporting the organization's work
in LaBelle, to March 1-8 from the busy month of Decem-
ber. Pictured accepting the residents' heartfelt contribu-
tion is Salvation Army Service Coordinator Debbie Lav-
ender, center. With her are Grandma's Grove Association
for Salvation Army Treasurer Gerie Kuykendall, left, and
