Ryders recognized for volunteerism


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Service to others. For some
those are just words, but for
others, like Frank and Caro-
lina Ryder of Muse, those three
words are a standard to live by.
For 15 years Frank has dedi-
cated countless hours to the
Red Cross, sharing the skills he
learned as an Army cook with
victims of all types of disasters.
Frank has served Red Cross
meals to thousands of victims
from New York to Mississippi.
His first experience as a Red
Cross volunteer was during an
ice storm in upstate New York.
He was back in New York and
was asked to help out at a lo-


cal high school-turned-shelter
where restless victims were
beginning to cause some
problems. He showed up in
uniform and he didn't have to
say a word. The problems just
stopped.
Since then he's made volun-
teering a special part of his life.
Frank and Carolina each
were recognized for their ser-
vice April 91 at the annual Lee
County Red Cross Awards and
Recognition Dinner. Frank
earned a gold President's Vol-
unteer Service Award; Caro-
lina a silver. Although he was
one of the honorees, Frank just
couldn't stay out of the kitch-
en. This former Army cook


prepared three turkeys for the
event. In fact, Frank spends his
volunteer time in the kitchen,
serving up welcome meals for
victims.
"It's what i do," he says sim-
ply.
Recently, the two of them
attended new classes in psy-
chological first aid learning
how to deal with people in cri-
sis and disaster assessment -
learning to judge the toll of an
emergency on property and
people.
They also trained in a new
water purification course,
learning to use a machine that

Herrera and Investigator Daley
joined the group. For approxi-
mately 50 minutes they talked to
the man, eventually convincing
him to place the knives on a table
near the doorway.
As Cpl. Davis and Deputy El-
ver approached Lopez, he began
pounding his arms and face on
the hood of a nearby vehicle.
Deputy Elver then used his taser
to incapacitate Lopez and re-
strain him in handcuffs. Lopez
was treated for minor injuries
and transported to the Hendry
County Jail.
Inside the residence, officers


found a large amount.of blood
on the floor near the kitchen
table and a trail of blood from
the mother's bedroom. In the
bedroom they found what they
believe to be a large blood stain
on the comforter and floor, along
with miscellaneous clothing on
the floor.
In Lopez' bedroom, they
found a small steak knife on the
floor near the bed and what ap-
peared to be a broken scissor
blade wrapped in black tape with
about two inches of the blade
showing and blood on the blade.
All were taken into evidence.


Teasley celebrates


'homecoming'


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
American Legion Auxiliary
Unit 130 celebrated the home-
coming of Florida Department
President Linda Teasley last Sat-
urday evening. Linda has been
a member of Unit 130 for 23
years and was inaugurated to
the top auxiliary state post last
July.
Coming to the end of her
term, Linda's homecoming
was a celebration of her service
at the state's top level.
Building on the many offic-
es she held at Unit 130, District
13, state and national levels,
she has taken her experience
with her as president, visiting
each of Florida's 17 American
Legion districts, adding to that
experience and knowledge as
she went.


She said visiting VA hospitals
throughout the state has prob-
ably been the most rewarding
part of the past year. Each VA
hospital is served by an auxilia-
ry representative which passed
along to Linda the needs of that
specific facility.
She said she visited as many
veterans at the Tampa VA and
other hospitals as she could.
The veterans are so apprecia-
tive, she said, of the visits. The
ability to respond to the veter-
ans' needs is a very good feel-
ing. Linda said calling cards
have been a very big item for
many of the vets who cannot
afford to call home. The cards
make it possible for them to
stay connected to loved ones,
hearing familiar voices that can
do more good than any medi-

County rejects


sub-station bids


By Stankeisha Burchell

CLEWISTON -- This week's.
county commission meeting's
hot topic was,. again, the fu-
ture of the Clewiston sub-office
on El Paso Avenue, which has
been vacant since Hurricane
Wilma in 2005.
Despite 11 bids for the de-
molition of the sub-office build-
ing two months ago, the board
voted to reject the bids and de-
cide later what to do with the
building.
Commissioner Kevin McCa-


rthy defends this decision to a.
fiery constituent.
"Your answer is to go in, ig-
nore the laws of Florida and put
$50,000 into that building and
remodel it which we can't do
because we cant get a permit,"
McCarthy said.
"If I didn't have professional
opinions from [licensed indi-
viduals] ... I would agree that
we could go in a remodel that
building."
As the member of the audi-
ence disagreed, cutting him off,

Little Miss LaBelle
Once again ABWA's Little Miss LaBelle pageant brought out
some of the cutest little girls around. The Caloosahatchee
Charter Chapter puts on the pageant every year to raise
funds for its scholarship program. On April 12, Arianna Her-
nandez, seated, was named Little Miss LaBelle. Cassidy Wil-
lis, standing left, was first runner-up and Taylor Harvey was
second runner-up.

will take most any kind of water
and turn it into potable water. It
is capable of turning out 400-600
gallons per day and has been
used by our troops in Iraq. The
class was put on by the Southern
Baptists.
In all his years of service to the
Red Cross, Frank said his tough-
est assignment was at Ground
Zero where he worked for the
maximum 21 days.
" The most grueling was dur-
ing the aftermath of Hurricane
Katrina when he served meals
in Mississippi for a marathon 52
days over twice the normal max-
imum deployment. He also spent
20 days in service after Hurricane
Wilma at the Germaine Audito-
rium (previously called Teco Are-
na). After Hurricane Charlie he
recalls working 72 hours straight
without sleep until additional vol-
unteers came to help out. He said
they started out with some 5,000
people to serve and only one 12-
cup coffee pot. Then they finally


got a 42-cup pot, then another.
Carolina has been a Red Cross
volunteer for seven years. Two
years ago she survived her own
fight with cancer and did not let it
stop her. She said the hardest part
of helping in disaster situations is
having to stay on your feet for
such long stretches of time.
Both Frank and Carolina re-
cently took the 24-hour Hendry
County Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT) training
geared toward citizens' immedi-
ate reactions to neighborhood
situations during local emergen-
cy situations.
The couple is heading back to
New York for the summer where
Frank will be teaching other Red
Cross volunteers to use a new
cook trailer and to drill with
5,000-10,000 other volunteers in
Manhattan.
Reaching out to others in
times of stress seems to come
naturally to Frank and Carolina
Ryder and it's something he fully
intends to continue to do. In his
words, "I'll keep doing this just as
long as I can."

cine.
Serving coffee and donuts at
state veterans' nursing homes
was a similarly rewarding experi-
ence.
Perhaps her favorite event of
the past year was the Christmas
party in Jacksonville for military
kids. Some 2,000 attended the
party complete with games, food,
prizes and of course, Santa.
Fbr Linda, visiting All Chil-
dren's Hospital in St. Petersburg
was especially rewarding. The
hospital was founded by Ameri-
can Legion Post 14. Early in her
presidency Linda decided to
make the addition of a lactation
room at the hospital her special
project. She is proud to say that
she has managed to make that
project a reality over the past
year. On May 23 she will present
a check for over $10,000 to build
the room, thanks to the tremen-
dous response from auxiliary
members all over Florida who


worked hard.
Next month Linda will have
the honor of escorting the na-
tional auxiliary president on a
whirlwind tour.
In July Linda will attend the
convention in Phoenix, AZ, to
complete her year in office.
Linda will hold the position of
National Executive Committee-
woman for the Southeast Area,
which will require her to be a
liaison between the state and na-
tional auxiliary and to report on
local needs from all the Southern
states. She will also be voting on
national issues as a member of
the Florida delegation.
The pace was grueling at
times, Linda said of her presi-
dency, especially in January and
February. Still, she made sure
she was home in LaBelle for the
Swamp Cabbage Festival.
Besides being "treated like a
queen" everywhere she went,
Linda said she thoroughly en-
joyed the non-stop work as Flor-
ida Department President. It's
a once in a lifetime opportunity
that will enrich her life and her
continued service to the Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary.


County
Continued From Page 1
McCarthy continued.
"I don't think we ought to take
that money and throw it into a
building that isn't worth it. We
should take that money and put
it a building that is going to meet
current building codes and is go-
ing to do what we need for the
residents of Hendry County."
The constituent argued that
the architect the county used is
not a sufficient architect.
k Carl Berner of Berner Oil said
the county needs to "think outside
the box and use the resources that
we already have." He said, "Let's
be representative to the citizens of
Florida with their tax dollars."
Berner believes that everyone
should "re-think how we spend
money" and pay for only what is
absolutely necessary.
McCarthy replied, "I can't do


anything without a permit."
"I don't care what they [the
county] do with it, as long as they
use it," proclaims Lisa Pickron
of the Hendry County Fair Board
Committee.
Pickron says if they are going
to usehe building for the sub-
office, "fine, but we would like
to be considered if the building
is going to be sold or otherwise."
"They really don't have
enough room to accommodate
everyone anyway, not even to
park. The sub-offices have been
run out of that out of date build-
ing for 42 years now, its time to
upgrade. Give the residents on
the eastern side of the county a
decent place to go and take care
of their county business."
Pickron and other Fair Board
members contend that they do
not want to be bad neighbors,
they just want the county to do
what's right.

Chamber auction
Last Saturday night at the an-
nual Chamber of Commerce Din-
ner and give-away was an awe-
some night.
It was attended by a huge
crowd who ate, drank and min-
gled with friends, family mem-
bers and co-workers. By far the
night was a huge success!
I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to thank all the numerous
generous contributors to our si-
lent auction.
We had .75 items for people
to bid on, the most we have had
since we started the auction.
If you did not attend you missed
really wonderful items such as a
cedar children's playhouse, tools,
paintings, books, electronics, gift
certificates of all kinds, a bistro
table and chairs, a John Deere
bicycle, a chest freezer, jewelry,
designer purses; an outdoor fire
pit, baskets filled with. all kinds
of different items and there was
even a lawn fountain bubbling
with water right there!
None of this would have been
possible without the support of
our contributors and of all the
members of the chamber silent
auction committee and thbse oth-
ers who worked so hard to make
the evening a success.
This community is wonderful
in it's generosity in supporting the
Chamber so I applaud each and
every one of you!
Thanks again to all and see
you next year at the dinner!
Maureen Jordan

Letters to the Editor


Riverbend concerns

April 5, 2008
To the Caloosa Belle:
A problem with reporters in
general, and print reporters in
particular, is that they read some-
thing, or hear something and then
try to explain what they don't un-
derstand.
A case in. point is the lead ar-
ticle in the April 2 edition of the
Caloosa Belle regarding access on
Riverbend Drive to the proposed
Eco Park. If one were to read that
article without knowing any of the
facts, one would be led to believe
that the only reason Riverbend
residents are resisting access' is
because we don't want anyone
else on our road.
It is true that there is a debate
about how far the City's easement
extends into Riverbend Drive, and
even though the Park Commit-
tee accepted Aim Engineering's


brief assessment of the easement,
that assessment is now being re-
viewed by the City Attorney to de-
termine it's accuracy, (A fact not
pointed out in the Caloosa Belle).
The reason Riverbend resi-
dents are raising concerns have
to do with maintenance, legal
liability, and fire .danger. As own-
ers of the permanent easement
along Riverbend Drive, Riverbend
residents have a legal liability for
accidents that happen along that
road. We also pay for mainte-
nance, repairs and repaving when
necessary. What we have asked
the Park Committee and the City
of LaBelle is: How are we going
to be protected from additional li-
ability and increased maintenance
requirements when additional
traffic is generated by opening the
road as a park access, and having,
construction vehicles coming in
and out to develop the park.
There is also a real concern
about fire danger. This 176-acre


parcel of land is overgrown with
dead trees and other debris that
has not been cleared for years. A
carelessly dropped cigarette could
cause a real threat to our homes.
(Unlike the Indian Mound Park
in Ortona, which is mowed). We
want some assurance that this is-
sue will be addressed.
The information above has
already been sent to the City of
LaBelle, the Park Committee and
the Caloosa Belle in other letters.
The paragraph on page 5 that
states "residents point out that
open access would require ap-
proval by 100 percent of River-
bend residents" is not an accurate
reflection of what was said.
.A few years ago, Sunshine
Land Development sued River-
bend Estates to gain access to
their property which is adjacent
to Riverbend Drive. Before agree-
ing to the settlement between
Sunshine and Riverbend, South
Florida Water Management RE-


QUIRED that all property owners
in Riverbend agreed to the ease-
ment being granted "so as not to
place an undue burden on the ex-
isting easement"
We are now only asking if 100
percent of owners were required
for that approval, how is this new
proposed use of the road any dif-
ferent?
But, our real concerns get
brushed aside and your paper
chooses to print a biased version
of the situation, which affects the
views of your readers because
they haven't been given the full
story.
If your reporter wanted to
write a responsible piece about
this issue, she could have taken
the time to speak with someone
from Riverbend who knows what
the true issues are.
Sincerely,
James L. Rigsby


Guest Commentary


People, barns share the aging process


Having been born in the Mid-
west in farm country, surrounded
by verdant agricultural fields and
the associated articles necessary
for farming, I was always fasci-
nated by the barns. Initially it was
the attraction they have for kids
frolicking in the stalls, grain bins
and most of all the hay lofts.
Fascinated that is until I was
old enough to have to help with
bringing in the straw and hay
bales for storage in those lofts.
That was when I discovered that
playing in the hay was not fun
when you were on the lifting end
.of those 80 lb. bales in 90 degree
temperatures, with matching hu-
midities.
Many years later as I revisited
some of what had been operating
farms and their barns was I to dis-
cover how much the barns and I
have in common. Common, that
is, when I could see how much
we resemble the barns in the ag-
ing process.
It came full circle when I de-


cided to remodel a family room in
our city home and my wife had an
early American decor in mind. It
was then that I decided to do the
walls and ceiling in old, authentic
barn wood siding and beams.
So in one of our trips back to
our birthplaces in the country, I
sought out several places where
deserted, old barns were still
standing to see if I could purchase
the siding and beams.
It was at one of these barn
sites that the owner gave me an
insight about barns that really hit
home for me.
After I had told him of my plans
for the wood, he asked me if I had
ever thought of the old barns as
to being like the aging process of
humans. When I said no, he went
on to explain the similarities in a
truly beautiful, meaningful way.
He cited the fact that like ag-
ing humans the old barns were
sure handsome in their days,
withstanding winter snows, ice,
cold, howling winds and summer


sun. With the paints fading into a
silvery gray, developing a leaning
posture and looking a little worn
and tired, old barns were a lot
like us. Only with humans it's the
inside where the beauty grows
within us.
SSure the exterior is going sil-
very gray and the leaning is more
evident, like when the barn wood
is losing it's sap. The Lord knows
what He's doing. The years pass,
He's busy, using the bad weather
of our lives, the dry spells, and the
stormy seasons to do a job of sea-
soning and beautifying our souls
that nothing or no one else can
possibly do.
While this old barn gets torn
down to beautify your house in
contemplation of being there
long after you have to take on
whatever chores the good Lord
has for you in that great farm in
the sky.
All of this in concert with be-
coming more beautiful as a result
of all the seasoning we've been


through, here on earth, and just
maybe adding some more beauty
to our Lord's house if we are for-
tunate enough to join Him.
Knowing that these old barn's
beauty transcends the human
barrier, may there be peace
within you today and forever,
and may God trust that you are
exactly where you are meant to
be. Thanking God that friends
and family will still love you even
though you show signs of weath-
ering.
With these inspirational words
still ringing in my ears, the pur-
chase was made and the wood
from that venerable old barn,
with no painting or alteration,
was added to our family room
where it remains today as a fitting
memorial to the weathering pro-
cess, we call "AGING."
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville
LaBelle

Witches Brew


By Pudge Lehman
There is a rule that someone
who obviously doesn't clutter
must have made up: "If some-
thing new comes in something
old had to go."
Well, I will ignore that rule
completely and come up with a
better idea. If an item has a lot of
sentimental value but is no lon-
ger useful then take a picture of it
and put it in the family album and
then toss it.
The picture will bring back
just as many memories as the real
thing. Another clutter buster is to
put in a box anything you don't
wear or use. Seal the box and
put it out of sight for a year. If no-
body has broken the seal in that


J
amount of time, donate it to the
Kiwanis store.
I wish I had thought of that the
last time I took a bunch of kitch-
en stuff. I had three pitchers and
now there is none!? I haven't had
frozen orange juice or crystal light
since. Guess I'll mosey on down
to Kiwanis and buy one back......

Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (tg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water sys-
tems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in
conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
The Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system in 2004. These assessments were conducted to provide information about
any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells (or surface water intakes). Potential sources of contamination identified include underground petroleum storage
tanks, dry cleaning facilities and wastewater treatment plants. The risk is high. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection
Program website at www.deo.state.fl.us/swappn.

(82)TTHMs [Total Thihalomethanes]. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver,
kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. In July 2007 we replaced a failed poly phosphate pump to insure delivery of ammonia used
to create chloramines as mandated by DEP. The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges,
oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can
also come from gas stations, urban stormwatcr runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to
drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regu-
lations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be
expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791. Some people may
be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons
who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These peo-
ple should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen thd risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and'
other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
In February 2007 We failed to collect the routine bacteriological samples and the microbiological quality of the water was unknown. The bacteriological sampling was collected March
and the results were in compliance. This monitoring violation was settled through a Consent Order with the Department of Environmental Protection.

Ford Motor Company awards $7,500 to LaBelle High School


LABELLE, Fla., April 11, 2008 -
LaBelle High School was awarded
$7,500 this week by Ford Motor
Company and Langford Ford. The
money was awarded in addition
to more than $1,500 raised at their
Cruise 4 UR School test drive event


in December. Cruise 4 UR School is
a national Ford program designed
to raise money for local schools-
during a day-long test-drive chal-
lenge, Ford Motor Company and
local Ford dealerships donate $20

special incentive, Ford awards an
extra donation to the high school
that generates the most vehicle
sales in conjunction with their test
drive event. LaBelle High School,
who partnered with Langford Ford
in December, placed second in the
nationwide challenge. A $7,500
check will be awarded to LaBelle
High School on Monday, April 14.
"We have always been an avid
supporter of local education, and
we are excited that Ford is con-
tributing $7,500 to LaBelle High
School athletic programs," said
Paul Langford, General Manager
of Langford Ford. "Cruise 4 UR
School was a great success for
both our dealership and LaBelle
High School."
LaBelle High School will use
the additional money to purchase
track equipment and fund new
construction on its softball dug-
outs. Since county funding does
not include provisions for athletic
programs, the money will go to-
ward much needed updates for
athletic equipment and facilities.
"Langford Ford has always
been a strong supporter of LaBelle
High School and our athletic pro-
grams, and we were proud to part-
ner with them for this fundraiser",
said Coach David Kelley of LaBelle


High School. "We appreciate Ford's
generosity and look forward to im-
proving LaBelle's athletic program
with this additional funding."
Since December, high schools
throughout the U.S. have part-
nered with local Ford dealerships
to host Cruise 4 UR School events,
resulting in more than $64,000 in
donations from Ford.

The Department's helpline and
county extension offices receive
frequent calls from people who
know about the dangers of AHB,
but are confused about what they
are supposed to do if they see a
nest of bees. They should never

A list of licensed pest control op-
erators by county is available at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/
plantinsp/ahb.html.
To prevent stinging incidents,
the public is urged to follow these
important guidelines:
If allergic to bees, always
have a bee sting kit available.
These require a prescription from
your physician.
-- Eliminate potential AHB
nesting sites. Check walls and
eaves of structures. Plug or
screen holes.
Stay alert for bees. Look for
bees in work areas before using
power equipment such as weed
eaters, lawnmowers and chain-
saws, as noise excites AHB.
-- If bees chase you, run away
and get inside a car or building.
-- Hire a licensed pest control
professional with experience and
training in honey bee removal to
remove the bees and the comb.
Do not attempt to remove it your-
.self.
-- Never use "wasp and hornet
spray" on honey bees. Honey
bees are not on the label of most
of these products. They do kill
honey bees, but they also cause
the release of alarm pheromone
that stimulates the rest of the col-
ony to attack.
-- Seek medical attention if
needed.

April is Community Banking Month


Washington, D.C. (April,
2008)-The Independent Com-
munity Bankers of America
(ICBA) and First Bank as part of
the annual celebration of Com-
munity Banking Month in April
- are leading a chorus of commu-
nity banks nationwide asserting
that community banks are vital
to the nation and its economic
health.
"The local community banker
understands community needs
and can make quick decisions
regarding funding for housing,
job creation, small businesses
and other local economic needs.
As locally owned and operated
institutions, community banks
are integral to their communities
and engage in community rein-
vestment and community devel-
opment on a daily basis. One of
our primary missions is to ensure
our local communities are vibrant
and thriving," said Cynthia L.
Blankenship, ICBA chairman and
vice chairman and chief operat-
ing officer of Bank of the West,
Irving, Texas. "The nearly 5,000
community bank members of
ICBA offer a wide variety of prod-


ucts and services from standard
savings and checking accounts to
online banking and remote check
deposit to help their customers
manage and grow their money."
"We're close to our customers
and we're close to our communi-
ties," said Miller Couse, President
of First Bank. "ICBA Community
Banking Month is just one way
First Bank shows our apprecia-
tion for our customers."
Each year, thousands of com-
munity banks participate in the
annual ICBA Community Banking
Month. Whether they host special
events with local charities, offer
programs to boost financial litera-
cy, serve their customers refresh-
ments or offer free car washes
at the local drive-through, com-
munity banks ensure that their
customers and their communities
are the center of attention.
Community banks offer impor-
tant-savings products and services
to help their, customers fulfill their
financial goals. One advantage of
saving at a community bank is
that because they are local, they
want to build lasting relationships
with their customers so they work


hard to deliver superior customer
service. A house down payment,
retirement, college, adoption
expenses, vacation, emergency
funds to name a few are all
goals families and individuals
may, have that require savings
and are great reasons to start a
savings nest egg at a community
bank now.
Finally, Blankenship called
attention to the important rela-
tionship between community
banks and small businesses. "We
understand the needs of small
business owners because com-
munity banks are also small busi-
nesses," said Blankenship. "Com-
munity banks are a vital to small
business, providing funding for
their expansion and innovation.
In our changing economy, small
businesses will continue be the
engine for new- job creation and
economic growth."

BAs Community Banking Month

Bank's website at www.firstl-

Maestro arrestado
Un maestro de la Escuela Me-
diana de LaBelle fue arrestado por
molestar a un nifio de 12 afios de
manera lujuriosa y lasciviosa.
Derrick Richard Sepp de
32 afios ha sido maestro de
matemiticas en la Escuela Me-
diana de LaBelle desde el 13 de
agosto del 2007. El fue contratado
por el Distrito Escolar Administra-
tivo de Hendry por un period de
un afio escolar.
De acuerdo con un informed de
la Policia de Lake Wales, el nifio
molestado conoci6 al maestro en
un.sitio de la computatora que se
llama My Espacio (Myspace) el
senior Sepp estaba usando el sitio
que se usa "Para Conocer Gente."
Los investigadores dijeron que el
nifio y el maestro arreglaron una
cita para mirarse en el Cinema
Regal que esta en las Tiendas
P6blicas de Lake Wales. El mae-


stro que se identific6 a si mismo
como "Eric" sabia que el niflo
tenia 12 ailos. Ellos se reunieron
en el teatro y se reconocieron uno
al otro por la ropa que Ilevaban.
Adentro del teatro el senior Sepp
acarici6 al nifio y despues cada
uno se fue por su lado.
Despuds de contactar la policia
el niflo y sus padres arreglaron
otra cita con "Eric" en el mismo
teatro. Cuando Sepp lleg6 y quiso

sentado en una banca afuera del
teatro, fue arrestado y puesto en

Sin embargo, todavia Sepp no
ha sido acusado porque la inves-

Escolar R. Scott Cooper, dijo que

was placed in an appropriate
place along the main roads com-

concerns remained foremost.
He said Superintendent of Public


Works Michael Boyle helped him
find locations for the final two
signs.
The new signs are intended to

acquaint newcomers with some
of the city's religious and organi-
zational offerings.
