Altercation leads to homicide
By Patty Brant
An altercation Tuesday, April
15, left one man dead and an-
other arrested for homicide.
According to the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office report,
the situation began when Jo-
seph Conley, Jr., 19, went to 690
N. Nile Street to feed and care for
his girlfriend's horse.
At the residence, Mr. Conley
ran into an acquaintance, 22-
year-old Michael Crain, who he
believed had previously attempt-
ed to damage his relationship
with his girlfriend.
The report states that Mr.
Crain admitted to Mr. Conley
that he had done so. At that
point, Mr. Conley reportedly
struck the victim in the left face,
upper jaw area.
The victim fell to the ground
backward and hit the gravel
road hard, leaving him un-
conscious and with difficulty
The report further states that
another individual at the scene
held the victim's head while Mr.
Conley got some water in an at-
tempt to revive Mr. Crain.
At that point, the owner or-
dered Mr. Conley off the prop-
Mr. Conley reportedly called
the owner several times after
that inquiring about the victim's
At 10:15 a.m. the following
day, Wednesday, April 16, the
victim was pronounced dead
by staff at Lee Memorial Hospi-
tal. He had previously been de-
termined to be brain dead and
had been on life support.
The Medical Examiner's of-
fice determined that Mr. Crain
had suffered cranial trauma
and multiple skull fractures
consistent with falling and hit-
ting his head. He also had brain
swelling and bruising on the left
side of his jaw. No other notable
injuries were discovered.
This is the second homicide

Villareal's mechanic shop, Car

The statistics will stop you
cold. They should.
In 2007,. there was a do-
mestic violence victim every
nine seconds in the US over
four million cases and those
are just the ones that were re-
ported. In LaBelle 103 domestic
violence cases were reported
last year 43 thus far in 2008.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee presented
these statistics to a small group
of victims of crimes and people
dedicated to helping them. The
occasion was a local recogni-
tion of Crime Victims Rights
Week. The group first gathered
at Barron Park for a few words
from those who work daily with
victims, then moved across Lee
Street to the Barron Park House
to dedicate a butterfly garden.

South LaBelle hearing in May
By Patty Brant
City commissioners are
expecting a lot of interest in a
public hearing coming up on
South LaBelle Village, the first
section of the Paul property
annex to come up for develop-
ment. At their April 10 meet-
ing, commissioners considered
moving the public hearing to
the civic center for a Local Plan-
ning Agency hearing in May.
The public hearing is expected
to be in July.
Street vending changes
Another hot button issue,
allowing some special excep-
tions to the prohibition on
street vending in the city, was
narrowly approved, 3-2, at the
April 10 meeting. Mayor Paul

Dave Lyons voted against the

ing in his territory or going out

Naturally, Arthur took the op-
portunity he was offered, and fi-
nally found a wise old witch and
posed the question. She said she
would answer it on one condi-
tion. She wanted King Arthur to
give her Sir Lancelot in marriage.
Loyal knight that he was,
Lancelot agreed to marry the old
hag to save his king. After the
wedding, the witch gave King Ar-
thur the answer to the question:
What do women really want?
Control over their own lives.
That night in the wedding
chamber the old hag appeared
to Lancelot as a beautiful wom-
an and offered him a choice: he
could have her in that form dur-
ing the day when she would be
expected to tend to social duties
or at night, only for him.
After considering the dilem-
ma, Lancelot made his choice: It
was her life, he told her, and she
should make her own decision.
Lancelot had proven his true
worth to her by allowing her to
choose her own destiny. The
wise witch chose to remain in
her beautiful form all the time.
Vicky Coley, another SAO
victim's advocate, trained every-
one's attention to the Clothesline
Project. She explained the sym-
bolism of the project- a visual
display of violence and its con-
sequences. Imbuing T-shirts with
their pain is part of the healing
process for victims, she said.
After the speeches and the
recognition, everyone moved
over to the Barron House where
a new butterfly garden was dedi-
cated as a peaceful place for
victims and survivors to go. It's
a living memorial to the victims
- both those who survived their
ordeal and those who did not.

the pain. These examples from the Clothesline Project were

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
THE CITY OF LABELLE WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM HAS A LEVEL OF
TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES WHICH EXCEEDS STANDARDS
The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water to inactivate
possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far outweigh it's risks. However,
when used in the treatment of drinking water, some disinfectants combine with organic and inor-
ganic matter present in the water to form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBP'S). A num-
ber of DBP's such as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5's) may be a health
concern at certain levels of exposure.
The Department has reviewed the laboratory analyses results for the quarterly samples for Total
Trihalomethanes(TTHMs)collected on March 6, January 30, 2008,December 13,September
26,sept5, Aug 8, and July 11,2007,indicates that the City of LaBelle water system has once again
generated a Maximum Contaminate Level (MCL) violation for TTHMs, since the running annual
average MCL for TTHMs was (mathmaticly) violated, after only three consecutive quarters of mon-
itoring. Specifically, the average TTHM concentrations for the samples collected during the third
(243.13ug/L), and forth(34.44ug/L) calender quarters of 2007 and the first quarter of
2008,(47.3ug/L). Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida Administrative Code (FAC), identifies the MCL for
TTHMs as 80ug/L.
Therefore, the Department has determined that this system has generated a MCL violation for
TTHM's. Table 3 of Rule 72-550, Florida Administrative code (FA.C.), identifies the MCL as 80ug\L
Some people who drink water-containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maximum Contaminant
Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with their liver,kidneys,or central nervous
system, and may have an increased risk of cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of disinfect ion
byproducts such as TTHM's and HAA5s, and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of chlidbear-
ing age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Until the problem is corrected, any customer
who are concerned about their expose to TTHM's/HAA5 may wish to use alternative sources of
water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treated by an appropriate home
water treatment device. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for reducing TTHM's in drinking
water certifies these.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
On November 15, 2007, the City of LaBelle water system submitted a letter to the Department
which identified the cause of the high TTHM concentrations in the samples collected on
9/5/07,8/8/07, and 7/11/07, as being due to the polyorthophosphate dosing system not operating
properly, this cause the ammonia injector to become clogged. When the ammonia injector
becomes clogged, the proper chlorine to ammonia ratio is not maintained, and this resulted in
elevated TTHM's in the finished water. The water system replaced the polyorthophosphate dosing
pump, and has ordered a spare pump to be kept on hand, and is now keeping track of how
much polyorthophosphate is used to insure the chlorine/ammonia ratio.

Top medical help
We, here in LaBelle, are very
fortunate to have our new Hendry
Regional Convenient Care Center
which is located in the Belmont
Woods building at 450 S. Main St.
I recently had need for an
emergency walk-in care clinic.
My husband took me to the Care
Center where Susanne Bengston,
ARNP-C immediately ordered an
EKG. The test showed that I was
in Atrial Fibrillation with a pulse
rate of 131. Ms. Bengston told
me that I must go to the hospital
immediately by ambulance and
called the EMS, within five min-
utes they arrived and I was on my
way to S. W Regional Hospital in
Ft. Myers. Rachel Stewart was the
paramedic on duty that rode with
me in the ambulance. I had ex-
cellent care on the trip with oxy-
gen being administered, another
EKG taken and an I. V. inserted,
all within a few minutes. I am so
thankful for Ms. Bengston and her
staff at the Clinic, as well as the
well trained paramedics.

The annual Chamber of Com-

success. The food was outstand-
ing. Thanks to all who made it
happen. HOWEVER... I was made
up as Captain Jack Sparrow and
many, many, people remarked
how good I looked...
Being on the slow side it took
a while to realize just what that
meant. Maybe...Randy is right
about my hair... Anyway, Phill Pel-

Use your calendar at work to
jot down things to do the next day.
It's easy to forget stuff overnight
and especially after a weekend.
My personal memory is one and
a half minutes now, and getting

Before you stop work for the
day, see how many loose ends
you can tie up. File the clutter,
straighten what you can straighten
and even line up some stuff you'll
need in the morning to start your
In all my nearly 73 years I've
never gotten the habit of deciding
what fashionable thing to put on
in the morning.
As y'all have probably suspect-
ed, I get dressed, make-up and all
in less than seven and a half min-
utes, which probably explains the
stares I get.
So my advice is: decide as
much as you can the night before.

Victim's story: Life goes on, but changed
By Patty Brant
Crime Victims Rights Week
is intended to focus attention on
the shattered lives crime leaves
One recent crime victim was
anxious to share her story with
others. As well as part of the heal-
ing process, she has a message
for everyone. Anyone can become
a victim of a crime at any time.
There is no warning; no second
chance; no "do over." She hopes
to raise other people's awareness
by telling her story.
"Nancy" (not her real name)
and her husband had just finished
a quick burger and were waiting
for a parking space outside a lo-
cal business when they were ac-
costed by an irate man they did
He punched "Nancy". first;
then her husband. When it was
over, "Nancy" had suffered a split
lip and jaw injury. Her husband
suffered fractured bones in his
"Nancy" has lived in LaBelle
for 20 years. She said she loves
the quiet atmosphere, but it fears
may have seduced into being
complacent when it comes to
safety. Her experience has taught
her her that she needs to be more
aware of other people, of what is
going on around her.
The attack came on a perfectly
normal Saturday night. It was
about 6 p.m. still daylight. A for-
mer LMS student and LHS gradu-
ate, Nancy said she never felt
scared in LaBelle before. "This
town has been great to me," she
shares, "but now I feel the need
to be watchful."
"Nancy" and her husband
have three children. Fortunately,
they were not with them when
the attack occurred.

Immunize infants now
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
acknowledges April 19-26 as Na-
tional Infant Immunization Week,
an annual campaign highlighting
the importance of providing, ap-
propriate immunizations to ev-
ery child by age two. This year's
theme is, "Love Them, Protect
Them, Immunize Them."
"National Infant Immuniza-
tion Week provides a valuable
opportunity for our community
to tell people the importance of
vaccinating all children," Charles
Alexander, DOH Bureau Chief of
Immunization, said. "Vaccination
is one of the most important ways
a parent can protect a child's
Additionally, the National Im-
munization for Polio Prevention
in Infants and Toddlers or "NIPP
IT" Campaign is being highlight-
ed promoting immunization of,
all children against polio at two
months of age, four months of
age, six months of age, and a
booster at four years of age. The
NIPP IT theme is, "Don't wait to
In 2007, Florida's immuniza-
tion coverage level for children
aged two was 83.2 percent. The
state's goal is 90 percent immuni-
zation coverage levels by 2010 for
each of the vaccines administered
to two-year-old children.
Babies need many immuniza-
tions before two years of age to
protect against serious childhood
diseases. The Center for Disease
Control offers the following tips
for parents and caregivers:
Take babies to a doctor
or clinic for shots. Immuniza-
tions start at birth and continue
throughout the first two years of
a child's life.
At each visit, discuss immu-
nizations with a doctor or health
care provider. Ask if the baby is
up-to-date on shots.
Keep the immunization re-
cord in a safe place and bring it to
every doctor's visit.
Ask the doctor when to re-
turn for the baby's next shots.
Make an appointment, and write
Seeing his parents after the at-
tack, the five year old wanted to
know if she'd been shot. Nancy
had to calm her children's fears
and explain, as best as anybody
can, why somebody would do
such a thing.
"Nancy" often works in larg-
er areas like Miami, where she
is used to being aware of her
surroundings. Until the attack,
though, she never thought she
would have to adopt that attitude
Things are different now. Nan-
cy said she won't stay out after 6
p.m. She jumps when a stranger
approaches, and has to fight off
the impulse to fend off a perfectly
innocent stranger going about his
business. She carries mace with
her when she goes out.
The family is very involved in
their church and Nancy said it has
changed their lives for the better.
She said she hopes her attack-
er will change his life, change his

"The long-term answer is to

Racers rave about
mower sports park
The first ever USLMRA Stabil
National Lawnmower Racing
Series triple header event had a
rainy start on Friday night April, 4,
the Hendry-LaBelle Mower Sports
Park handled the rains great, and
allowed the event to start after a
one-hour delay. Over 40 USLMRA
racers competing on 46 mowers
in seven National Championship
points classes from across Florida
and six other states.
Racers made the trek from
Alabama, Georgia, North Caro-
lina, Maryland and Wisconsin to
LaBelle in spite of high gas prices.
This, along with the weather, kept
the expected 80 + racer count low
but the competition was fierce.
All of the out-of-state rac-
ers were impressed with the
area and the racing facility. This
event marked several firsts for
lawnmower racing: the first ever
USLMRA Stabil National Lawn-
mower Racing Series triple head-
er event, the first USLMRA event
hosted by the first Affiliated Club
in the country, and the first event
for the Junior Production class to
compete for National Champion-
ship points. The J/P class is for
10-15-year-olds on identically pre-
NAS6RASS wants to thank the
following for their support that
made this historic event possible:
The Hendry-LaBelle Recreation
Board, Hendry County BOCC,
Hendry County Tourism, Hendry
County EMS, Caloosa Belle and
Immokalee Bulletin newspapers,

dry-LaBelle Mower Sports Park. Sid Whiteside, president of
NASGRASS, Inc., presented the check at the Mower Sports
Park. Healthy Start receives proceeds from the races' admis-
sions and concession. Mr. Navedo expressed appreciation
for the funds, especially in this time of serious budget cuts.

next day we
thought we saw three little ones
huddled together in a crotch of
the big oak nearest the carport
but couldn't be sure it was the
same little family. Yet, after watch-
ing for a short time, here comes
mama and papa. One positioned
himself or herself on one side of
the three and the other on the
opposite side. Thie was the big
test! He and she began pushing
Sthe little ones out of that crotch,
all three at one time. They made
an effort to fly, sorta flutter-flying
at least breaking the fall to the
ground. But almost at the same
time mama and papa were there
pushing and poking at all three
of them, trying to "make" them
climb up the bark of the oak tree.
They tried, each one, and to a cer-
tain degree were successful but
then he or she would push him or
her off and the effort to fly takes
place again! Up and down, up
and down yet little by little they
were clawing their way higher
and higher on the oak trunk un-
til finally they reached the crotch
from which they'd been evicted
only a few minutes ago. Well,
needless to think they'd get to rest
a little, they simply got pushed off
again and by this time it was plain
to see that the flying lessons were
paying off. They flew more or less
to the ground, then flew up and
down from the tree trunk again
The following day we kept
looking for that little trio of bird-
lings, but it was not to be... not a
sign of them anywhere. Obvious-
ly, mama and papa's flying les-
sons had been learned and their
little first pupils were off exploring
the big wide world of the woods.

SFWMD revises watering restrictions
West Palm Beach, FL Modi-
fications to the South Florida
Water Management District's
(SFWMD) emergency water re-
strictions will become effective
Friday, April 18, when most of
the agency's 16-county region
transitions from one-day-week
residential landscape irrigation
restrictions to up to two-day-a-
The, District's nine-member
Governing Board last week
adopted a "Modified Phase II
Severe Water Shortage Order"
based on improved regional wa-
ter resource conditions. Under
the District's emergency author-
ity, decisions to implement and
modify water shortage restric-
tions are resource-based.
The District implemented
region-wide in January for the
first time in the agency's history,
based on extreme water short-
age conditions and a continued
rainfall deficit of close to 25 inch-
es. SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann said
last week, "It's important to note
that we are not lifting emergen-
cy restrictions. Our decision to
modify the restrictions is based.
on the improved conditions of
our water resources."
Although the revised land-
scape irrigation restrictions go
into effect April 18, the SFWMD
is, encouraging local govern-
ments to refrain from enforce-
ment until Thursday, May 1. The
goal is to provide residents with
sufficient time to become aware
of the changes and adjust timers
or other components of their res-
idential irrigation systems. The
modified mandatory restrictions
apply to all water from tradition-
al sources, including water from
public utilities, private wells, ca-
nals, ponds and lakes.
Highlights of the Modified
Phase II Water Shortage Order
Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
ateas of Lee, Martin and Palm
Beach counties, including the
City of West Palm Beach, are lim-
ited to a two-day-per-week land-
scape irrigation schedule with
two "watering windows":
Odd street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesday and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursday and Sundays from. 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off. Ad-
ditional watering days and times
are allocated for the establish-
ment of new lawns and land-
No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco-
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
Landscape irrigation using
100-percent reclaimed water is
allowed any day except Friday,
from 12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or
from 4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Golf courses must reduce
their allocated water use by 30
Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other
water management districts, the
SFWMD has coordinated with
these agencies to simplify imple-
mentation and enforcement:
Residents of Orange and Os-
ceola counties should adhere to
any water restrictions set by the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
Residents of Polk, Charlotte
and Highlands counties should
adhere to the water restrictions.
set by the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District.
One-Day-Week Watering Re-
mains in Effect in Areas of Con-
Due to continued local con-
cerns about water resource
availability, one-day-a week wa-
tering remains in place for the
cities of Dania Beach, Hallandale
Beach, Lake Worth and Lantana
and portions of unincorporated
Lee County, including the Lehigh
Acres and Gateway areas. One-
day-a week landscape irrigation
remains in place for residents and
businesses in the Lake Okeecho-
bee Service Area, which includes
portions of Glades, Hendry,
Okeechobee and western Martin
and Palm Beach counties.

Various stations were set up in
