EC earns national membership


Edison College has been
accepted as a member of the
prestigious Association of Ameri-
can Colleges and Universities
[AAC&U].
Membership in the national
organization testifies .to a col-
lege's or university's emphasis
on student learning and its com-
mitment to provide the advan-
tages of a liberal education to all
students, regardless of academic
specialization or intended career.
"AAC&U has long: been
known for collaborative pursuit
of shared scholarly values," said
Kenneth P. Walker, Edison Col-


lege's District President.
"Edison's academic rigor is
grounded in an exemplary faculty
committed to innovative teaching
strategies, collaborative learning
and scholastic excellence.
"We look forward to partici-
pating in the dynaWic projects
and alliances offered through this
organization, and sharing Edi-
son's successes to benefit other
institutions."
Established as a junior col-
lege in 1961, Edison College has
evolved into a multi-campus bac-
calaureate degree-granting edu-
cational system with approval for


six bachelor's degree programs:
Public Safety Management, El-
ementary Education, Secondary
Education-Mathematics, Second-
ary Education-Biology, Supervi-
sion and Management and Nurs-
ing.
Edison College serves over
17,000 credit students annually
through campuses in Lee, Char-
lotte and Collier counties, a cen-
ter serving Hendry/Glades coun-
ties and through Edison Online.
Students represent nearly 80
countries around the world.

Two sign college contracts


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Two more of LaBelle High
School's fine athletes have
signed contracts to play for
colleges. Julian Keen and Rey
Hernandez are the newest Cow-
boys to sign up to move on to
the collegiate level.
Rey Hernandez, #33 and
kicker for the Cowboys, signed
his letter first at the joint cer-
emony May 2. As is traditional,
a table was set up in the school
library with Cowboy colors and
the newhonorees' photographs.
Teachers, family, classmates and
well wishers crowded around to
share the excitement..

in Atlanta, Ga., from April 17-20
where they more than made
the trip worthwhile. Both came
back with trophies - a first place
Superior Rating for the Jazz
Band and a first place Excellent
Rating for the Concert Band.
The feat earned LMS the Grand
Champion trophy.
Twenty-eight band students,
. from sixth through eighth
grade, made the trip and com-
peted against nine other bands.
There were a total of three
middle school bands and seven

sity Eagles in Missouri. Julian is
headed for Independence Com-
munity College Pirates in Inde-
pendence, Kansas.
.As always, Cowboy Head
Football Coach Ron Dunbar was
enthusiastic about his young
men. Rey was good, he said, but
knew he had room to improve.
So he worked harder.
"LaBelle High School has
been blessed with kickers over
the years," he continued, "and
Rey has the potential to be one
of the best."
He was committed to going
on to school, Mr. Dunbar said,
and willing to work hard to get
there. He worked to get videos

rary Joy, and a medley called

This is LMS Band Director

Julian Keen, #44 linebacker
for the Cowboys, was also cel-
ebrating his 18th birthday that
day. He is headed to Indepen-
dence Community College in
Kansas. Mr. Dunbar noted Ju-

efforts to get where he wanted

tion, Edison College will soon be
part of Florida's new state college
system.
The regional state college
pilot study includes nine institu-
tions and is slated to commence
July 1, 2008.
Edison College will retain
its primary mission of meeting
community needs through post-
secondary associate and certifi-
cate programs.
At the same time the college
will be expanding baccalaureate
programs that address regional
economic development needs.
Open-door policies will also


be preserved, and Edison will
continue to reach out to under-
served populations including
those requiring remedial educa-
tion.
The planned result will be
more Florida students complet-
ing four year degrees, and at a
significant savings to students
and taxpayers.
The excellent transfer per-
formance of Edison College
graduates matriculating to state
universities is testament to the
College's reputation for quality,

Dyess unveils his


sheriff's campaign


Democrat Fred Dyess, Jr. has
some very clear ideas on how
he would run the sheriff's of-
fice if he is elected. He said he
would begin with bolstering the
employees' morale.
Overall, he feels there should
be a strong involvement with
youth by the sheriff's office.
A product of Hendry County
schools, he said as sheriff he
would try to "restabilize" its re-
lationship with youth. That will
not happen just through School
Resource Officers (SROs), he
said. Patrol officers need to go
into schools and participate in
youth athletics as volunteers
and coaches. He feels the aver-
age deputy needs to become fa-
miliar with local kids - and kids
need to become familiar with
the deputies. He said the sher-
iff's office needs to partner with
the school system to develop re-
lationships that will benefit kids


and solve issues. He sees youth
gangs.as a problem gathering
strength - it's
only a matter
of time un-
til it erupts.
"We have to
listen to or
youth," he
said, "they
know the
score."Fred
T h e
county is DyessJr
currently suffering one of worst
drug problems it's ever seen, he
believes, with cocaine on the
streets and in the schools. To
take on the challenge of drugs,
he said he would work closely
with other jurisdictions, reestab-
lishing partnerships with Palm
Beach, Lee and Collier counties,
relying on their resources to fill

Pelletier runs for


Property Appraiser


Phillip Pelletier is a Democrat-
ic candidate for Hendry County
Property Appraiser. He moved
to LaBelle in 1973 and worked
in the construction industry for
about 13 years before going to
work for the Hendry County
Property Appraiser. He was there
for six years before transferring
to the newly formed Hendry-
LaBelle Recreation Department
as Director, Secretary and Chief
Financial Officer. He prepares an
annual budget, manages person-
nel and acts as general contractor
on all new projects and project
manager for new parks and facil-


ities built through grant funding
thereby remaining knowledge-
able in the
area of cur-
rent costs.

He also said he would have inves-
tigators dedicated to solving drug
crimes.
Mr. Dyess said HCSO mist
consistently be involved in all ar-
eas of the county, reaching out to
serve the outying areas like Mon-
tura, Felda, LeDeca and Pioneer
that are beginning to boom. He
believes a central policing district
+- should be created within the next
five years.That would ease the
workload on both the east and
west districts, as well as lessen the
'time and gas needed to respond
to outlying areas.
Mr. Dyess is a proponent of
community awareness and said
he would provide free training for
the community to partner with
law enforcement. The curriculum
would include information like
what to look for in gang signs and
drug use and programs in schools

commercial and agricultural areas.
Part of.his job was justifying the
tax roll values to the Department
of Revenue during periodic stud-
ies and preparing the annual sales
ratio analysis for the level of as-
sessment. Another important part
of his job was meeting and help-
ing the public understand apprais-
als, taxing authorities, exemptions
and the resulting tax bill.
Phill's attitude is that the
elected Property Appraiser and
all employees are public servants.
The office belongs to the taxpay-
ers. They should be treated with
respect and given the assistance
needed. With Phill's leadership,
he said this can and will happen.
His campaign philosophy and
his plan for running the Property
Appraiser's office center around
unity - unity within the county;
,unity within county government.
He feels that members of all com-
munities within the county should

for parents and teachers.
Community policing is not just
a watchword, but an important
component in good law enforce-
ment, Mr. Dyess feels. He said offi-
cers should get out of their vehicles,
shoot a few hoops with kids, talk
to people - find out what they're
needs are. That's the best kind of
partnership any law enforcement
agency can have, he said.
As part of a proactive ap-
proach to law enforcement as
opposed reactive, he believes it is
essential to get information into
the community and critical to in-
crease law enforcement's role in
schools. That's where you'll stop
a lot of crime, he said, adding that
a strong, cooperative law enforce-'
ment presence in the schools will
help build law abiding citizens
both now and in the future.
Mr. Dyess came from family
with a strong law enforcement
background. His grandfather,
Earl Dyess, Sr., served as Hendry
County Sheriff from 1960-1980.
His uncle, Sermon Dyess, also
served as sheriff. Acknowledging

feel equally important and fairly
treated, and that each and every
county governmental agency
should strive to work together for
the good of the whole county. He
feels the job cannot be completed
properly by the elected Appraiser
working strictly 8:00 to 5:00.
Whether through his job or on
his own time, Phill is active with lo-
cal and state government agencies
as well as civic and non-profit or-
ganizations including but not lim-
ited to all the sports organizations,
Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, Ameri-
can Cancer Society's Relay for Life,

Sights, sounds of old Mexico


An erroneous statement was
made in the April 24 edition of
the Caloosa Belle, in the story
about the Victims Rights Week
ceremonies at Barron Park and
compounded in last week's cor-
rection.
Chief Prosecutor for the State
Attorney's Office for Hendry/
Glades Dan Cavanaugh was er-
roneously reported as stating
victimized children are often
"inadvertently betrayed by the
very system . . ." Actually, Mr.


that his uncle's term ended badly,
he said he won't walk away from
family. Mr. Dyess said he' contin-
ues to be asked if his uncle would
be involved in his administration
and his answer is no - he would
be the one making the decisions.
"My father (who served on
the school board) and grandfa-
ther were the biggest influences
in my life," he said. "I remember
the agency my grandfather built
up. He was always at the SO," he
recalls and notes, "the population
always got service."
Recognizing that today's econ-
omy presents a real challenge to
government agencies, he believes
that service can still be provided.
He points to his strong business
background, saying he knows
how to make the hard decisions
and walk the line between fiscal
responsibility and providing ser-
vices to the taxpayers.
He also said he believes in
communication - the "top" needs
to listen to the "bottom," and take
that information into account in
their decisions.

his wife, Amanda, and grandson,
Nicholas (age 2) are living in Ken-
tucky. Their daughter, Kerensa and
her husband, David Clark, and
granddaughter, Tayler (age 5) are
here in LaBelle. Phill was honored
as the 2008 Swamp Cabbage Fes-
tival Parade Grand Marshal, voted
1996 Citizen of the Year by the
Greater LaBelle Chamber of Com-
merce and has received numerous
awards and thank you's over the
years.
Phill said he has listened to a lot
of people selling their homes and
moving out of the county in the
last few years due to their high ap-
praisals and taxes. They also were
upset about being treated with dis-
respect. As your full time Property
Appraiser, Phill said he will strive
to appraise Hendry County proper-
ties based on actual values and not
on inflated speculation. He said he
will defend those values against the
Department of Revenue and not
hide behind anyone and that the
attitude of the office will change.
That change, he believes, begins
at the top.

Cavanaugh's statement referred
to child abuse in the home. He
said kids are betrayed by the

the abuse.
In addition, information in
the paragraph relating to "real

ed and stated by Sheriff Ronnie
Lee, not Mr. Cavanaugh.
We regret the errors and
apologize for any inconvenience
they may have caused.


Mr. Dyess is a believer in re-
cruiting locally, saying they will be
the most dedicated officers and
believes none of the other can-
didates can match his education
and experience.
He has studied both civil and
criminal law and went through
the sheriff's auxiliary training to
see how officers handle calls. He
believes in less administration at
the top level. In his administra-
tion, all the top officers would
be expected to multi-task, allow-
ing more personnel to cover the
streets. Those in his administra-
tion would need to be qualified in
multiple areas - no "desk jockeys"
in his department.

Wildfire burning in Lake Okeechobee


Firefighters began trying to
contain two wildfires on Lake
Okeechobee last weekend. -One
was at Myakka Cut and one at
'Grassy Island. The two fires were
separated by a canal and within
2-3 miles of each other. Agencies
;involved include Glades County
PFire/Rescue, South FL Water Man-
agement District and Florida Divi-
,sion of Forestry.
S"The potential growth of these
,wildfires is up to 6,000 acres,"
,said Melissa Yunas, Wildfire Miti-
gation Specialist from the FL Di-
vision of Forestry on Monday,
VIlay 6. "The two wildfires slowly
.grew over night to 4,000 acres.
They are 5 1/2 miles long; the two
,wildfires are burning from the rim
,of the lake well into the interior.
'Firefighting crews are still patrol-

and grass islands within the lake
are burning and causing a smoke
nuisance," Yunas said. The main
concern is smoke. US 27 & Coun-
ty Road 720 are not shut down
but smoke advisory signs are
posted. Smoke may create condi,
tions where visibility on roadways
is seriously impaired. Under these
conditions drivers need to: turn
on low-beam headlights, slow
down and be prepared to leave
the roadway if conditions con-
tinue to deteriorate.
The counties that border Lake
Okeechobee have experienced
residual smoke and they will con-
tinue to experience smoke till the
winds shift. Winds are out of the
North East bringing the smoke to
the east coast. The projected fore-
cast for tonight is for the winds
to shift to the East/South East.
Therefore, the West Coast and
Okeechobee County'will be ex-


perience smoke within the week.
Health concerns may be reported
due to smoke.
The cause of these two' wild-
fires is incendiary. The Florida
Division of Forestry is asking any-
one who knows about any infor-
mation pertaining to these fires


or see anyone acting suspiciously
before, during or after a fire has
started, please call the toll free
Arson Alert Hotline (1-800-342-
5869).You may be eligible for up
to a $5,000 reward for informa-
tion leading to the conviction of a
woods arsonist.

Firefighters are working to contain two wildfires that began

Speak Out
Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and

Who's next?: I would have thought after the accident on
29N with the sand truck against little red car and the death
of two adults and one unborn baby, truckers would beware.
WRONG!
Thursday morning on 78 E we were driven off the road by
a white sand truck passing a dump truck. The road is straight,
no fog, he saw us. I should have called Ortona sand pit and
gotten info.
It's bad enough to see truck drivers on cell phones. We
could have been the next.

Financial Focus


Putting

You may not be familiar with
its formal name - the Economic
Stimulus Act of 2008 - but you're
almost certainly aware of its key
outcome: a tax rebate. Now
comes the big question: What
should you do with it?
If you spend it, you will do
your part to help stimulate the
economy. But by investing the re-
bate, you could help speed your
progress toward your long-term
financial goals, such as a comfort-
able retirement.
Before we look at investment
possibilities, let's quickly go over
the "nuts and bolts" of the plan:
* How much? You can receive
up to $600, if you're filing as an in-
dividual, or $1,200, if you're filing
a joint return. Plus, you can get an
additional $300 for each qualifying
child. However, the size of your
rebate will be reduced by $50 for
every $1,000 you earn above ad-


your tax rebate to work


justed gross income (AGI) limits
($75,000 for singles and $150,000
for married couples).
* When? The IRS will be-
gin mailing Stimulus Act rebate
checks in May. If you've selected
the "direct deposit" option for
receiving your 2007 income tax
refund, your Stimulus Act rebate
will be placed in the same ac-
count that you've chosen for your
refund.
Investment Choices
Here are a few possibilities for
investing your rebate:
* Traditional or Roth IRA -
Suppose that you are a joint filer
and did receive the full $1,200
rebate. If you put that $1,200 in
an investment that earned a hy-
pothetical 7 percent return, and
that investment were placed in
a traditional or Roth IRA, the
Money would grow to more than
$9,000 in 30 years. (This figure


does hot include fees; commis-
sions or expenses, all of which
would reduce your investment
returns.) Keep in mind that tra-
ditional IRA withdrawals are tax-
able, whereas a Roth IRAs earn-
ings have the potential to grow
tax free, provided you don't begin
taking withdrawals until you're at
least 59-1/2 and you've had your
account for at least five years.)
All investments within these ac-
counts do fluctuate in price, so it
is possible to have more, less or
the same amount when you sell
your investments.
* Section 529 savings plan -
In a Section 529 college savings
plan, you put money in a specific
mix of investments. Section 529
plans are tax deductible in some
states for residents who partici-
pate in their own state's plan. All
withdrawalfwill be free from fed-
eral income taxes if the money


is used for a qualified college or
graduate school expense of your
child or grandchild. (Withdrawals
for other reasons may be subject
to federal, state and penalty taxes.
Also, Section 529 distributions will
appear as income on the child's
tax return, which could affect fi-
nancial aid calculations.)
* Emergency fund - It's a good
idea to put six to 12 months' worth
of living expenses in a liquid ac-
count for use as an "emergency
fund." Without such a fund, you
might be forced to liquidate some
of your long-term investments to
pay for things such as a costly car
repair or an unexpected medical
bill.

May celebrates Women's Health Month


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) joins
health professionals and citizens
statewide in celebrating women's
health.- Throughout the month,
special programs will be dedicat-
ed to increasing awareness about
women's health issues across the
lifespan and encouraging women
to make healthy decisions.
"This month we celebrate the
extraordinary progress in wom-
en's health research, practice and
programs," State Surgeon Gen-
eral Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said. "The Department
recognizes the need for "continu-
ous efforts to improve the health
of women in Florida. By taking
simple steps such as having regu-
lar check-ups and recommended
screenings, maintaining good
nutrition and exercising, women
can empower themselves and
improve their health regardless of
age."


"Women's Health Month is a
great time for women to focus on
their health and to explore ways
to incorporate healthy habits into
their daily routines. Each healthy
act may positively impact a wom-
an's health for years to come
and create a legacy of health for
the generations that follow," said
DOH Assistant Deputy Secretary
for Health and State Women's
Health Officer Tamara Yang Dem-
ko, J.D.
In celebration of Women's
Health Month, DOH will host
the 2008 Governor's Conference
on Women's Health, May 27-28,
2008, at Buena Vista Palace in Or-
lando, Florida. This conference
will provide an ed
ucational forum for Florida's
women and women's health
stakeholders to discuss issues af-
fecting women across the state
and also identify solutions that
will help improve the overall


health status of women in Flori-
da. To learn more about the Con-
ference, visit www.doh.state.fl.us/
womenshealth/2008Conf/index.
html.
In addition, DOH will host and
recognize other community ac-
tivities during Women's- Health
Month, including National Wom-
en's Check-Up Day, health fairs,
and physical fitness events. Dur-
ing National Women's Chec
k-Up Day on May 12, DOH will
encourage women of all ages to
be proactive with their personal
health and schedule preventative
exams and screenings. Through
regular screenings, many diseas-
es and other health conditions
can be detected early. This focus
on prevention can be extended to
other aspects of women's heath
including routine exercise and
eating a healthy diet.
DOH understands that wom-
en's health encompasses a broad


range of issues, including physi-
cal, social and economic con-
cerns across the lifespan. Child-
care, work and family demands,
caring for ailing parents, economy,
ic security, and aging can impact
a woman's health.
DOH strives to empower
women and communities with
the tools to recognize the diverse
public health needs of women
and to promote a better under-
standing of the many facets of
women's health.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. For more information

Check-Up Day, visit the DOI-

American Stroke Month: Learn the signs:


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
joins the American Stroke As-
sociation in recognizing May as
American Stroke Month. The
Stroke Collaborative, a joint ven-
ture of the American Academy of
Neurology, the American College
of Emergency Physicians, and the
American Stroke Association, has
developed a new campaign called
"Give Me 5: Walk, Talk, Reach,
See, Feel" to raise awareness
about the warning signs of stroke
and the importance of getting to
the emergency room fast.
"This educational campaign
coincides with alarming new
research released in February
2008 that shows a tripling in the


rate of strokes among middle-
aged women," said Betsy Wood,
BSN, MPH, Chief of the Bureau of
Chronic Disease Prevention and
Health Promotion.
Research shows that the pub-
lic remains unaware of stroke
warning signs and the need for
immediate medical attention
(even if the symptoms go away).
Stroke symptoms include sudden
difficulty walking, talking, reach-
ing and seeing, as well as sudden
and severe headache.
It is especially important for
women to know the warning
signs, because they account for al-
most 70 percent of stroke deaths.
The important message of the
"Give Me 5" campaign is early


identification of stroke symptoms
and early intervention by doctors
in the emergency room. Early rec-
ognition of stroke symptoms can
mean life and death.
Saving someone's life- or even
one's own - may be as simple as
remembering "Give Me 5." With
stroke, every minute counts.
"Give Me 5" offers a quick
stroke check using five short
words:
Walk - Is their balance off?
Talk - Is their speech slurred
or face droopy?
Reach - Is one side weak or
numb?
See - Is their vision all or partly
lost?
Feel - Is their headache se-


vere?
For more information about
the "Give Me 5" campaign, call

strokeassociation.org. To learn

ease and Stroke Prevention Pro-

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, May 8, 2008 i



Upthegrove Elementary students love their 'Miss Phyllis'


Mrs. Phyllis MacKenzie began
her volunteering adventure by
joining the Foster Grandparent
and Senior Companion Program
of Southwest Florida. For her first
and now only assignment, she
was sent to Edward A. Upthe-
grove Elementary School to begin
her volunteer service. As part of
the program, she was directed
-to volunteer for one hour each
:week, but that's not what hap-
'pened...
Immediately, Miss Phyllis (as
she is affectionately known by
'both the staff and students) began
,volunteering six hours per day
-every day. She uses most of her
:time working with Mrs. Nelson's
.kindergarten children. However,
"when another teacher is in need
-of help, Miss Phyllis is always pre-
pared to jump right in and assist!
She arrives sharply dressed
every morning at 8 a.m., and
she stays until 2 p.m. She spends
most of her time working one-on-
one with children, but in a pinch


she'll cut, sort and staple papers,
too. She's a secretary, a painter,
a gardener, a cleaner, a mentor
and a friend. She instructs, re-
views, glues, cuts, pastes, sorts,
smiles, hugs and reads. You name
it - there's not much Miss Phyllis
can't do! Furthermore, Miss Phyl-
lis' faithfulness to the students is
never waning, and her very pres-
ence and caring nature serves
to stimulate the students' minds
and promote positive behavior.
Some of the children even call her
"Grandma."
How did Mrs. Nelson become
so lucky as to acquire such an
awesome volunteer? Here is
the story. On the first day of this
school year, Ms. Phyllis walked
into the already frantic office. She
inquired with Receptionist/Secre-
tary Mrs. McGill about volunteer-
ing. Being so busy, Mrs. McGill
blurted out, "Could anyone use
some help this morning?" Mrs.
Rivas, another kindergarten
teacher, was walking by and re-

room. She came in and said,
"I'm Phyllis MacKenzie. How
can I help?" Mrs. Nelson put her


to work checking backpacks and
orienting students in the room.
It's been a wonderful relationship
ever since.
The children adore Miss Phyl-
lis, and Miss Phyllis adores the
children. She once told Mrs. Nel-
son that volunteering at. UES has
given her back her life. On several
occasions when Principal Luckey
and district administrators have
publicly thanked her, Miss Phyllis
promptly replied, "Thank you for
this opportunity to be part of the
children's lives." And now -- con-
cerned about how she will spend
her time this summer, she has
already made arrangements to
volunteer for a pre-kindergarten
summer program. Mrs. Nelson
and her students all feel the same:
They hope that she continues to
enjoy every moment spent here
with her second family and can't
wait to have her back next year!

8 Caloosa Belle, Thursday, May 8, 2008


Jeannie Lynch chosen Las Noticas en Espanol


bus route manager


School bus drivers in LaBelle
gathered recently at a luncheon
welcoming long-time driver Jean-
nie Lynch as the new Route Man-
ager and Coordinator. Ms. Lynch
began her career with Hendry
County School Transportation in
1978 and has previously served as
a driver, driver trainer/route man-
ager.
The group also acknowledged
several drivers who received cer-
tificates from the Excellence in
Safety Train the Trainer program:
Virginia White, John C. Smith
and Sara Pipkins. There are five
lead drivers in LaBelle: Denise
Brookins, Debbie Livingston, Vir-
ginia White, John C. Smith and
Sara Pipkins. Debbie Livingston is
theCDL trainer in LaBelle, while
Joyce Williams handles that duty
in Clewiston.
On the LaBelle side, there are
29 full time drivers and three sub-
stitutes who handle a total of 28
runs every school day.
There are 68 buses on the
roads'daily, 28 in LaBelle, along
with two vans that transport spe-
cial needs students to Fort Myers
every day from LaBelle.
Annually, LaBelle bus drivers
drive about 500,000 miles in regu-
lar routes and about 63,000 miles
n extracurricular activities such as
football, basketball, baseball and
school field trips. The buses aver-


age about 3,200 miles per day in
LaBelle, 6,400 county wide.
County wide, Hendry's buses
have an exceptional safety record
with no reportable accidents for
at least the last two years. A re-
portable accident is one with any
injury or damage in excess of
$1.000.
Hendry County bus drivers tra-
verse some of the most difficult
routes in the area, transporting
4,300 students per day county-
wide.
Assistant Superintendent of
Schools R. Scott Cooper attend-
ed the welcome luncheon for
Ms. Lynch. He commented that
Hendry bus drivers cover a lot of
roads, lot of miles. "Our buses run
on a lot of secondary roads, more
than many communities. They're
not easy routes. There are chal-
lenges for drives on both sides of
the county. In the LaBelle area, A,
B and C Roads offer special chal-
lenges as well as routes north of
the bridge and the Alva route."
Hendry's bus drivers provide
two training classes during the
year - one in the summer for vol-
unteers and coaches and an eight
hour training for regular route
drivers.

The Children's Network of
Southwest Florida, LLC, wel-
comes Sheriff Ronnie Lee of Hen-
dry County to the Board of Direc-
tors.
Sheriff Lee offers an extensive
36 years experience with local,
regional, state and national ,law
enforcement along with over 20
years active and reserve military
service. Lee is a native of Hendry
County and is married with two
sons. With his knowledge of the
local needs of the community and
his experience in law enforce-
ment, he is a vital asset to the
Children's Network.
"I wholeheartedly believe
that I chose a career as a public
servant to create a better tomor-
row for all of our children. I have
dedicated my professional life to
keeping our neighborhoods safe
and crime free so that families can
grow and live in peace. I believe
that together, as a community, we
can accomplish great things by
promoting healthy, stable and sol-
id relationships for our children,


thereby investing in our future,"
stated Sheriff Ronnie Lee.
The Children's Network of
Southwest Florida was created,
in April 2003 as the lead agency
contracted by the Department of
Children and Families to handle
child welfare in Southwest Florida
(Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry
and Glades counties). Since that
time, a system of care was de-
signed for children and families in
this five-county region.
The Children's Network of
Southwest Florida serves as an
administrative service organi-
zation that builds a network of
case management organizations
and specialty providers with the
capacity to provide a continu-
um of services for children and
families. The Children's Network
is currently responsible for al-
most 1,900 children involved in
the child welfare system across
Southwest Florida.

Notice for Early Public Review of a Proposal to Support Activity in
the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All Interested Agencies. Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that Hendry County has submitted an application for a Commu-
nity Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under the Disaster Recovery Initiahve
program identified as the 07DB-A10 and 08DB-A08 grants to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs. The funding is provided by the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and will be used for the following eligible
activities:
Construction of approximately 10.000 square foot building that will be utilized as
an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for Hendry County and infrastructure to
support the EO facility Proposed infrastructure improvements include roadway
water and sewer facilities The EOC site is located approximately 5 miles west of
the City of LaBelle at 3888 Congen Road in unincorporated Hendry County.
This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4) of Executive Order 11988 for Floodplain
Management, and by Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11990 for the Protection of
Wetlands, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for
the HUD action that is within and/or affects a floodplain or wetland.
Construction will be undertaken in the 100 year floodplain and/or wetlands. Hendry
County is interested in alternatives and public perceptions of possible adverse im-
pacts that could result from the project as well as potential mitigation measures.
It is planned that the construction of the EOC facility and the roadway improve-
ments and water and sewer improvements will occur within the floodplain area.
The project will be located on a 10 acre parcel, approximately 5 miles west of the
City of LaBelle, at 3888 Congen Road. The subject site is currently vacant, unde-
veloped agricultural land The County intends to construct a 10,000 square foot
EOC facility and the infrastructure required to support the facility (i.e.,roadway,
water and sewer improvements). The County does not currently have a separate
Emergency Operations Center facility and this has been deemed as an "urgent
need" by the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners.
This notice with a request for comment was mailed to the Regional'Office of the
Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, and U S. Army Corps of Engineers. Additional information maybe
obtained by contacting: Ron Zimmery, Hendry County Grants and Special Pro-
jects Director at 863-675-5264.

Belle, Florida 33975-2340 on or before May 28, 2008. Please direct all com-
ments to Mr. Zimmerly's attention.

Variety SI

By Patty Brant
,Caloosa Belle
, If you like variety, you'll want
to stop by Randant's Variety Store,
located in Jennings Hardware at
Bridge Street and Fort Thompson
Ave.
Gayle Randant and her hus-
band Dave came to LaBelle two
years ago to be with their son and
grandchildren.
Dave is retired and Gayle is
working for the health depart-
ment. She worked at a cable
office in North Carolina before
coming here. She and Dave were
also heavily involved in the rodeo
association there for many years.
Coming to LaBelle, she said
she saw a lack of variety-type
stores. She just happens to be
very knowledgeable about lots of
things and has an eye for knick-
knacks and useful items of all de-
scriptions.
She is especially fond of South-.
western decor and has a section
devoted to that genre. Pictures
and statuettes, even boot beads.
Like End of the Trail items? Gay-
le's got 'em.
Craft pieces, collectible dolls
(antique and otherwise) - how
about a Coca Cola codler that can
hold 135 cans? There's lots more
where all these items came from.
The store opened Monday,
,April 28, with - what else? - a vari-
ety of items, but Gayle is anxious
to hear from folks around town.
What would you like to see in her
store? What type of things interest
local folks? She said she doesn't
want to compete with other
stores in town - she's interested in
finding a niche all her own.
She has some items on con-
signment and a number of things

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Gayle Randant holds a ce-
ramic cactus - just one of the
many items you can find at
the Randant's Variety Store
now open inside Jennings
Hardward

they brought with them from
North Carolina - unique items like
a brand new Polaris trailer, made
to be pulled behind a jet ski. Pack
your cooler,-extra gas and other
necessities - then you're good for
a whole day of fun on the river.
During the day Dave handles
the store, but when things are
slow you're as likely to find him
and Larry Woosley pickin' their
guitars as stocking shelves. Both
play at the Bull Pit Ministries.
Check out the neat stuff at
Randant's Variety Store Monday
through Friday from 8-6 and Sat-

COES celebrates Earth Day
In 1962, Senator Gaylord Nelson put the environment
into the limelight when he expressed his concern for our
planet. President John F. Kennedy then began a five-day,
eleven-state conservation tour to educate the public. In
1969, Senator Nelson decided to have a special day to
teach everyone about the things that needed changing in
our environment. Earth Day has been celebrated on April
22 since 1970 and has spread all over the world. COES
recently celebrated Earth Day and students were educat-
ed in ways in which they can help the environment. Kin-
dergarten students took a field trip to the Calusa Nature
Center in Ft. Myers'where students learned about native
plants and animals. Grades one, two and three took field
trips to the LaBelle Nature Park where students took a na-
ture walk, observed native snakes and owls and learned
about the water cycle. A recycling program has begun for
plastic and paper in every classroom. Pictured above is
fourth grade teacher Paul Aho who, with help from some
students, planted a palm tree donated by Tris Chapman.

Yeomans


completes


training

Navy Seaman Recruit Alisa
R. Yeomans, niece of Shelma A.
Gaskin of LaBelle, Fla;, recently
completed U.S. Navy basic train-
ing at Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Yeomans completed a va-.
riety of training which included
- classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs, first
aid, firefighting, water safety and
survival and shipboard and air-
craft safety. An emphasis was also
placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations." This ex-'
ercise gives recruits the skills and
confidence they need to succeed
in the fleet.
"'Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior at-
tributes of sacrifice, dedication,
teamwork and endurance in each
recruit through the practical ap-
plication of basic Navy skills and
the core values of honor, courage
and commitment.
Its distinctly "Navy" flavor was
designed to take into account
what it means to be a Sailor.
