LPA acts on South LaBelle Village


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
After five years, action has
commenced on preparations
for what is known as the South
LaBelle Community. The South
LaBelle Village is the first proj-
ect being considered in the over
5,000-acre annexation that effec-
tively tripled the size of the City
of LaBelle several years ago. This
action governs a 1,018-acre area
adjacent to SR 80.
At their June 16 Local Plan-
ning Agency (LPA) meeting at


city hall, the city commission-
ers (sitting as the LPA) reviewed
three pieces to the puzzle: the
South LaBelle Village Large
Scale Comprehensive Plan
Amendment, the Development
of Regional Impact (DRI) and
,the Planned Unit Development
(PLID) applications. Together,
these three pieces will lay the
groundwork that will open the
first section of the Paul annexa-
tion for development. The ordi-
nances were approved by the
LaBelle Local Planning Agency
and recommended for approval


at the July 10 regular commis-
sion meeting.
In August 2005 a comprehen-
sive plan amendment was ad-
opted for this section. Build out
of the entire South LaBelle Com-
munity will stretch over decades.
This current process focuses on
a small area on the north side of
the property, adjacent to SR 80.
City Planner Shellie Johnson
said she believes this DRI is the
largest to be considered in Hen-
dry County since Port LaBelle
in the early 1970s. She pointed
out that since that time, many


changes have been made to the
process and that no one should
expect "another Port LaBelle."
A DRI is required by the Florida
Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) when a development
will have a substantial impact
on the surrounding area. DCA
encourages balanced, sustain-
able communities and requires
infrastructure and sufficient road
capacity to be in place before a
new community is built.
On May 15 the Regional Plan-
ning Council recommended
conditional approval of the DRI if


it is deemed consistent with the
city's comprehensive plan by the
city's Local Planning Agency.
The second part of the puzzle,
the Planned Unit Development
(PUD) is more technical. It is the
city's review of the project set-
ting special conditions, etc.
The Large Scale Comprehen-
sive Plan Amendment covers an
area in the South LaBelle Village
known as the Urban Reserve,
which has been swapped with
the South Florida Water Manage-

City accepts




park plan


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
That night the city accepted
the park management plan
it charged the park advisory
board to complete. Chairman
Craig Bartoshuk presented the
plan to the commissioners,
who will review it and format/
edit it before submitting it to
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD).
The City of LaBelle has leased
the site, on the north side of the
Caloosahatchee River in Glades
County, from SFWMD.
Mr. Bartoshuk told the board
several of the advisory board
members wished to remain in-
volved in planning the park, an
idea Mayor Puletti welcomed.


There are many issues yet to
be resolved, including a num-
ber of objections by Riverbend
Estates residents, whose neigh-
borhood is adjacent to the site
and whose access road may
be used to get'to the proposed
park.
Much remains unknown,
including funding sources, the
fate of several sensitive species
residents say may be found
there and security issues.
According to Mr. Bartoshuk,
"The work is just beginning."
He also suggested the LaBelle
commissioners meet with
Glades and Hendry County
representatives since they must
both be involved in the plans.

Residents came out to the
LaBelle Civic Center June 17 to
get a first-hand look at possible
alternative routes the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) is considering for the
four-laning of SR 29 from Cow-
boy Way north to US 27.
Three options are on the
table: moving the state road to
a corridor east of town; a cor-
ridor west of town; or continu-
ing on its present route through
LaBelle.
Residents were asked to
look at the options, consider
the ramifications of each and


provide their comments.
The three alternate routes
were selected by a process
called Land Suitability Map-
ping, which takes into account
the various natural, physical.
and socio-cultural features in
the project study area.
It is part of the FDOT's Proj-
ect Development and Environ-
ment (PD&E) study, gathering
pertinent engineering and en-
vironmental information on the
project.
The PD&E process is expect-
ed to take some 30 months. No
funds have yet been allocated
for design, right-of-way or con-
struction.
Final approval is expected


early in 2010.
Comments may still be sub-
mitted online at www.sr291a-
belle.com
None of the possible routes
has a clear path; all have nu-
merous obstructions to con-
struction such as development,
the presence of endangered
species, archaeological sites.
Perhaps the biggest impedi-
ment of all is: where to place
the bridge and what type would
be best.
Once the preferred routes)
are selected by FDOT for con-
sideration, they will be pre-
sented at another public work-
shop scheduled in the Spring of
2009.


Benefit to help twin Quarter Horse


The folks at Sweet Cypress
Ranch are offering a day of
fun to help them with a good
cause.
Five-month-old filly Grace is
growing into a fine horse now,
but the prognosis for the twin
foal was anything but encour-
aging when she came into this
world.
Born January 31 to King Leo
Sue, Grace is the elder sibling in
an unusual twin birth. Equine
twin births are very risky, with
a possibility of a good outcome
just about one in 10,000 for the
survival of both.
Grace's brother, Will, was
born in perfect condition, but
Grace came out with wind-


swept legs - a condition in
which both legs are bent in the
same direction.
Since her birth, Grace's
treatment has included casts,
an operation, a glue-on shoe
for additional support and leg
w ips At five months of age,
she is now looking forward to
normal activity.
Since her birth, many peo-
ple have heard about her needs
and have stepped forward to
help out. Owners Jo Carns and
Al Curry breed Quarter Horses
and are putting on this event to
help with Grace's medical ex-
penses. They are inviting other
horse owners to saddle up and
ride in their equine poker run


Sunday, June 29, beginning at
3 p.m.
You must have your own
horse to participate in this
unique event.
Enjoy up to four hands of
Five Card Stud and a great sev-
en-mile ride around the area
of the ranch. The poker run
includes five stops: begin at the
ranch, water your horses at the
windmill, then on to "Danny's"
where ice cream and lemon-
ade will be available, then to
the crossroads and back to
the ranch, picking up a card at
each stop.
Kids under 18 will need pa-

When you first meet Rick
Hornsby, it becomes abun-
dantly clear that he is a profes-
sional law enforcement officer
through and through. He greets
you with a warm and friendly
smile and a firm handshake.
Rick speaks with the dialect of
a southern gentleman, which
permeated his being while
growing up in Hendry County.
However, don't let the never
ending "yes sir or yes ma'am"
be construed as a sign of weak-
ness or lack of control.


Immedi-
ately upon
meeting Rick,
you will no-
tice he is in to-
tal control of
himself and is
a "take charge -
person." This
is a direct re-
sult of playing
and excelling
in sports throughout his life,
proudly serving as a leader in

Mr. Bartoshuk asked the
board to note the assistance and
recommendations of the Division
of Forestry in identifying which
trees to keep at the site, plan op-
tions and burning guidelines.
Mayor Puletti was pleased for
the advisory board to continue
work on the park, especially the
Riverbend Estate members. He
added that no infringement on
Riverbend was ever intended.
Advisory board member
Margaret England reminded the
commissioners that they are still
on a time line to get the plan to
SFWMD by October.
The board unanimously ac-
cepted the plan for formatting
and editing.
Fire Chief Malcolm Johnson
reported that the area is still dry
and that he plans to keep burn
ban in place for another month.


He said two more firefight-
ers have been accepted on the
department, for a total of 19. He
said they are also very pleased
with two new brush trucks.

of poker.
If you don't want to participate
in the poker run or ride, you can
come out anyway and just enjoy
the day. Meet Will and Grace and
have fun with raffles, great food
and some lively music.
The ranch is located at 275 Kir-
by Thompson Road. Call 863-675-
6751 or 239-470-1061 to register

ment District. It is no longer nec-
essary to refer to the area as an
Urban Reserve.
The PUD application is for
2,500 residential units, 220,000
square feet of retail uses, 50,000
square feet of office uses, 50,000
square feet of quasi-public uses
as well as civic and recreational
uses.
Setting out specific construc-
tion and use criteria, the PUD in-
cludes a minimum of 273 acres of
open space. Plans call for multi-
family, single family, commercial
mixed use and retail areas in tra-


,ditional neighborhoods.
The Bonita Bay Group is tak-
ing a proactive approach, con-
tributing the same amount for
workforce housing and trans-
portation improvement funds as
it does in large coastal counties.
It may be seen as seed money to
start a housing program to help
workforce to purchase homes or
with SHIP money to rehab older
!homes.
This money will be paid in
three installments of $105,000.
Mayor Paul Puletti said the
city doesn't want development
Ito draw residents out of the city,
leaving the core vacant. These
funds will help build and preserve
housing for "essential workers"
like teachers, firefighters, law en-


forcement and EMTs.
Bonita Bay is also continuing
to pay impact fees (which have
temporarily suspended by the
county) for up front improve-
ments along SR 29.
The company intends to part-
ner with DOT to complete inter-
section work to improve traffic
flow between Helms Road and
Cowboy Way,
This project would put $6.4
million toward these improve-
ments but would not be enough
to do all the intersections and
four lane that section of road
Staff'd recommendation for
approval will be taken up at the
city's next commission meeting
beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday,
July 10, at city hall.

the U.S. Marine Corps and the
training from the many leader-
ship roles Rick has assumed dur-
ing his twenty-one year law en-
forcement career.
Rick looks like the stereotypi-
cal cop from his short and me-
ticulously trimmed Marine Corps
haircut to the muscular frame
that he has developed from his
continued belief that a fit body
promotes maximum mental and
physical fitness.
To better understand what led
Rick Hornsby on this journey to-
ward becoming your Sheriff, you
must first understand his heri-
tage. Forty-three years ago, Rick
Hornsby was born in Hendry
County, the son of Richard and
Maria Hornsby. Rick attended
public schools and graduated
from Clewiston High School.
Rick and his wife, Lisa, continue
to reside in Hendry County.
On February 12, 2008, Rick
Hornsby, a lifelong resident of
Hendry County and a Profession-
al Certified Law Enforcement Of-
ficer of twenty-one years, proud-
ly announced his candidacy for
Sheriff of Hendry County.
Rick's law enforcement ca-
reer began in 1987. After having
worked as a Corrections Officer
at Glades Correctional Institution,
he realized his life-long ambition
when he became a Deputy Sher-
iff with the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Dept. Rick left the Hendry
County Sheriff's Department and
began working with the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Depart-
ment where he is still employed,
but has taken a leave of absence
in'order to run for Sheriff of Hen-
dry County. When asked why he
wants to be the Sheriff of Hendry
County, Rick replied, "It is and
always has been my dream to re-
turn to the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office. It is my goal to bring
my 21 years of training, experi-
ence and education to the place
where my career first began. I
will provide the highest degree
of safety and protection to my
friends, family and all the citizens'
in the community."
When asked how Rick would
provide a higher quality of ser-
vice and protection, he stated:
"As your candidate for Sheriff,
I bring to the citizens of Hendry
County a vastly diverse level of
expertise that no other candi-
date for Sheriff possesses. Having
worked for one of the most pro-
gressive and highly respected law
enforcement agencies in the Unit-
ed States, I have attended a mul-
titude of advanced law enforce-
ment schools and hold instructor
certificates in many areas. I am a
business owner in Hendry Coun-
ty, which has afforded me the
opportunity to develop a strong
business acumen as it relates to
budgets, accounting and admin-
istrative leadership.
"In each and every commu-
nity in Hendry County that I visit,
all the citizens have stressed the
need for more deputies to patrol
our neighborhoods and business
districts. We all know that we will
never have the kind of resources
of our neighboring counties and
will never have their enormous
budgets, but we must maximize
our own resources to get the


best law enforcement possible
within our working capital. This
means that we must promptly
implement measures of elimi-
nating wasted man-power and
resources. We can immediately
increase the amount of deputies
we have by reallocating our ex-
isting resources. I will reallocate
our current manpower, by taking
away the desks that a few of the
current employees possess and
exchange them for patrol cars.
"It's easy for a Sheriff to blame
county commissioners or past
administrations for the lack of
funds, training or equipment.
However, I believe it's time to
quit worrying about blame and
start making some changes that
will correct the problems and
protect our community. I know
this can be done, but we must
act quickly before it's too late.
"When elected Sheriff, I will
implement Community Policing;
I won't just talk about it, I'll get it
done. I know from first hand ex-
perience that it works. This move
will allow us to have deputies
permanently assigned to specific
areas of the county. The territo-
ries will be patrolled regularly so
they will know the residents and
what's going on in the commu-
nity.
"This familiarity fosters a bet-
ter relationship between the
citizens and your Sheriff's De-
partment, and more importantly
will create more accountability
for our deputies. By permanently
assigning deputies to areas like
Felda, Ladeka, Pioneer, Mon-
tura, Harlem and other vital ar-
eas of Hendry County, we will
significantly reduce crime by
implementing proactive law en-
forcement, rather than reactive
law enforcement. Furthermore,
we will stress the importance
of crime prevention instead of
crime documentation. Also, I will
work together with our schools
implementing new programs to
assist in keeping them drug and
crime free.
"When I become your Sheriff,
I will build better working rela-


tionships with county commis-
:sioners and town officials. Un-
,derstanding that we must work
together in order to achieve a
common goal, I look forward to
working closely with the fine of-.
ficers of the Clewiston Police De-
partment. Together we can bet-
ter serve the citizens of the City
of Clewiston and Hendry County
,at large.
"I understand the importance
lof training and educating our
Deputies. David Allen Bloom said
it best when he stated, "Educa-
Ition is the movement from dark-
ness to light," and it's time for us
Ito turn the lights on in Hendry
County. The fine working men
,and women of the Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office deserve to be
'exposed to the highest levels of
education and training.
"This will ensure superior
protection for our citizens and
give deputies the absolute best
opportunity of returning home
safely to their loved ones at the
lend of the day. I will provide this


training within the Sheriff's Of-
fice on a regular basis at no ad-
ditional cost to the tax payers.
"I promise the citizens of
Hendry County that I will have
an open door policy, I will lis-
ten diligently to the community
to identify their problems, I will
take ownership of those prob-
lems and will continuously work
to find solutions.
"In summation, I proudly
served my country as a mem-
ber of the United States Marine
Corps and it is my military train-
ing combined with my 21 years
in law enforcement that has
taught me the importance of be-
ing a true leader. I will lead from
the front because I have walked
in the footsteps of the deputies I
will supervise. I will completely
understand their needs and the
needs of their families.
"I will work diligently to pro-
vide for these needs and do ev-
erything possible to ensure that
they protect the citizens of Hen-
dry County.

Understanding



your anger


By Pastor Les Morgan
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
What ticks you off? Ever think
about that? Of course you have.
If a pollster were to ask you
what makes
S .' you mad,
-: you probably
would pres-
. ent a list rather
quickly. You list
may include
p: high gas pric-
es, slow driv-
ers, irrational
Dr. Les conversations,
Morgan whining, be-
ing lied about,
your character being defamed
or kids that talk back to their par-
ents or are disrespectful to adults.
Perhaps you are agitated by "red
tape" in a building process, pro-
fessionals who don't like it or un-
ending busy signals when you re-
ally need to speak with someone
on the phone.
The bottom line is this - if you
have lived past the first two hours
of life, you have been angry. We
all have experienced this emo-
tion.
There are different things that
can, "light our fuse." Sometimes
one's "fuse" is a "slow burn" and
other times people have an "in-
stant ignition." However, no mat-
ter how anger is experienced, it is
essential that anger be managed.
If a person fails to get a grip on
that emotion, the results can be
deadly.
So how do we handle our an-
ger?
The first and foremost step
in managing anger is to under-
stand why we get angry. Anger
often leaves us baffled by our
own feelings and behavior. Anger
sometimes creates a feeling of
being out of control of one's own
thoughts, feelings and actions.
All anger is not the same. There
are four hidden motivators that lie
beneath the surface, causing an-
gry feelings to stir and sometimes
erupt like a volcano.
Known Anger: Both the an-


gry person and those around him
are aware of his anger.
Masked Anger: The angry
person is in touch with his anger
but hides it.
Denied Anger: The angry
person is unaware of his anger,
while others around' him are
-aware of it.
Unknown Anger: The anger
is so deeply hidden, denied and
repressed that neither the person
nor others are aware of it.
As was mentioned earlier,
there are many causes of anger.
However, most of them fall under
one of these six categories: re-
bellion toward God, immaturity,
jealousy over others, stress and
pressure, substance abuse, and
unfinished business -- the most
common form being resentment.
Let's take to heart the admoni-
tion given in the Bible concerning
anger. The Apostle James chal-
lenges us concerning anger with
these words: "Everyone should
be quick to listen, slow to speak
and slow to become angry, for
man's anger does not bring about
the righteous life God desires"
(James 1:19-20). Paul writes in
Ephesians 4:26, "Be angry and
do not sin: do not let the sun go
down on your wrath." Solomon
likewise admonishes us with
this passage: "He who is slow
to wrath has great understand-
ing, but he who is impulsive ex-
alts folly." (Proverbs 14:29) On
the mountainside one day, Jesus
said, "First be reconciled to your
brother, and then come and offer
your gift." (Matthew 5:24)
Need some resolution to an
anger issue? Perhaps it would be
valuable to talk with a counselor,
a mentor or your pastor concern-
ing what is causing your spirit to
be so unsettled. Also, you can be
assured of this - the Lord Jesus
understands what is happening
with you. Talk with Him. He'll an-
swer you, that's a promise.
Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of
Caloosa Baptist Church located
20 yards behind Flora & Ella's in
famous LaBelle.

Letters to the Editor


Thomas Jefferson said, "In a
Republican nation, whose citi-
zens are to be led by reason and
persuasion and not by force, the
art of reasoning becomes of the
first importance."
So I am neither impressed nor
encouraged by the current state
of this republic. It seems that we,
as a society, have completely dis-
regarded the value of what Jeffer-
son had been speaking of.


It says something of our times
when double speak, the art of say-
ing something without meaning
anything, is used often by politi-
cians giving speeches to the pub-
lic; when the foundation of all so-
ciety rests on the balance of who
can and cannot marry who; when
all it takes to get a bit of legislation
passed, even if it flies in the face
of our Constitution, is to put the
word "patriot" in it; when all it


takes to be labeled "unpatriotic"
is to not wear a flag pin or have a
flag bumper sticker; when we so
value the idea that all human be-
ings are equal, and each has the
rights to life, liberty, and the pur-
suit of happiness, but those rights
only apply to human beings who
also happen to be American, it re-
ally says something.
But maybe I'm being too
harsh, I usually am. After all, al-


most five hundred years ago
Rene Descartes noticed nearly
the same thing when he wrote,
"Good sense is of all things in the
world the most equally distribut-
ed, for everybody thinks himself
so abundantly provided with it
that even those most difficult to
please in all other matters do not
commonly desire more of it than
they already possess."
Brandon Holt


Politics: When rhetoric becomes remorse


Once upon a time in that great,
make believe land of political
campaigns and rhetorical under-
pinnings, comes that moment
when truth takes command.
Caught up in the spin that consti-
tutes political correctness passing
for the truth, one of the aspiring
candidates for President of Amer-
ica, had a "NIKE" moment, put-
ting his foot into his mouth, ala
"SWOOSH."
The "gaff" was, in part, con-
cerning and implicating gun own-
ers in a less than responsible and
complimentary way.
With no attempt at compro-
mising any of the participants in
this little shootout at the "OB Cor-
ral," as a gun owner I thought you
might interested in the following:
There are over 700,000 Physicians
in the USA. Accidental deaths
caused by Physicians is 120,000,
which is equivalent to 0.171 per-


cent, as reported by the U.S. Dept.
of Health & Human Services.
The number of gun owners
in the U.S. is 80,000,000 (80 mil-
lion), with the number of acci-
dental gun deaths posted, in all
age groups pegged at 1,500, per
year.
This is equivalent to a per-
centage of accidental deaths of
.000188, per gun owner, per year
according to records on file at the
FBI.
So what do these figures re-
veal? On a comparative basis,
it says that doctors are approxi-
mately 9,000 times more apt to
have an accidental death happen
than a gun owner.
With this in mind, without
disparaging our fine doctors and
their many herculean efforts to
save lives, guns aren't involved in
as many deaths as doctors, and
keep in mind, not everyone has a


gun, but surely, almost everyone
has at least one doctor.
Thereby lies the predicament.
Alarming as this study might
seem, we can neither afford to
"ban" them nor not consult them.
I understand that a similar study
was initiated on lawyers, but the
results have been withheld for
fear that the shock would cause
such panic that even more people
would have to seek medical at-
tention.


Meanwhile the politician that
stuck his "NIKE" into his larynxial
void is "SWOOSHING" on down
that yellow brick road trying not
to step on any more land mine,
and pledging not to "shoot" from
the hip anymore, in public.
Is this a great country, or what!
Where the "BULL" and the "ANG-
LEOPES" inter-breed, while trying
to stay out of the "line" of fire.
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville

Rep. Grimsley's contribution to education recognized


On June 10, Heartland Educa-
tional Consortium (HEC) Board
of Directors during their Eleventh
Annual Leadership Conference
recognized the outstanding contri-
bution to education of Represen-
tative Denise Grimsley. On behalf
of the Board (Superintendents),
Dr. Pat Cooper, Superintendent
of Okeechobee Schools and Vice-
Chairperson of the HEC Board
presented her with the award.
HEC serves DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Highlands and
Okeechobee school districts
Rep. Grimsley has attended
several meetings of the Heartland
Educational Consortium Board of
Directors to confer with the Su-
perintendents about issues facing
the small and rural districts of the
Heartland. She even arranged for
Rep. Seth McKeel who is an edu-
cation subcommittee member
from Lakeland to visit with the
Board. During the session, Rep.
Grimsley is known to frequently


contact local Superintendents to
seek information on a specific
piece of legislation being con-
sidered by the House. She rec-
ognizes the need for a specialist
in the field to provide advice on
the impact of legislation and she
makes the effort to obtain the Su-
perintendent's ideas.
Rep. Grimsley was instrumen-
tal in the most recent session
working with Sen. J.D. Alexander
to renew an appropriation for
Heartland to provide resources
for working with small rural high
schools. The Consortium will
facilitate the school's efforts to
implement student achievement
legislation in the high school. The
local high school principals define
the utilization for these funds.
The Board also recognized
the support of education by Sen.
President Ken Pruitt (S-28). Sena-
tor Pruitt represents Okeechobee
but has demonstrated his support
of Florida education.

Man Builds Record-Size Tree House After

Using Thera-Gesic�
BEXAR COUNTY- Tom W. applied Thera-Gesic" on
his aching knee, then built a monster 1650 sq. ft. tree
house on his friend's ranch while his friend was
on vacation. When asked why he built the tree
house, especially knowing his friend had no kids,
he painlessly replied: "None of
your dang business!"

S Go painlessly with Thera-Gesic"



Ask your candidate
Q: :As commissioner what would , , .
be your relationship with the city .
of LaBelle? . *,,
A:: Let me make one thing clear, l,'.
the residents of the city of LaBelle *
are also county residents and tax �..H.
payers. Just because they live in..
the city, does not exclude them from county represen-
tation. I don't believe there should be competition
between the county and city government. The county
should do everything possible to help the city thrive
and meet its goals. I see enormous potential in work-
ing together to better serve everyone's tax dollars. The
jointly funded LaBelle Fire Department is a shining
example of a win-win for our tax payers. There is
much more work that can be done to help ALL the tax-
payers. As your county commissioner, I would do
everything in my power to create a solid city/county
relationship.

RCMA centers receive


By Gloria Gonzalez
RCMA
LaBELLE, FL - June 19, 2008 -
Two RCMA centers in LaBelle - the
Mira Verde Child Development
Center and LaBelle Child Devel-
opment Center - have recently re-
ceived national accreditation for
excellence in the care of young
children. The centers ae among
four in Hendry County operated
by the Redlands Christian Migrant
Association, which provides child
care and early education for near-
ly 8,000 children of migrant farm
workers and rural, low-income
families in 21 Florida counties.
The awards, from the National
Accreditation Commission for
Early Care and Education Pro-
grams, confirm that licensing
standards have been exceeded;
that Mira Verde and LaBelle staff
have benefited from professional
development; and that the chil-
dren have a nurturing environ-
ment conducive to their growth
and development.
The Mira Verde Child Develop-
ment Center is under the direc-
tion of center coordinator Lupe
Stroud. The center provides child
care and after-school programs
for over 60 children. The center
is open this summer, serving chil-
dren 2-11 years old.
The LaBelle Child Develop-
ment Center is under the direc-
tion of center coordinator Petrona
Lopez. The center provides child


care for more than 40 children
from 6 weeks-5 years old. The
center is closed for the summer
but will reopen in August.
In all, RCMA serves over 400
children in Hendry.
RCMA was founded in Miami-
Dade's Redlands farming area in
1965 by Mennonite Church vol-
unteers to provide a safe, nurtur-
ing place for migrant workers to
leave their children while they
harvested the crops. From three
original centers in the Homestead/
Florida City area, RCMA has since
expanded into 20 other Florida
counties to become Florida's larg-
est nonprofit child-care provider.
More than half of RCMA's 70-plus
childcare centers are nationally
accredited.
Children enrolled in RCMA's
preschools and child develop-
ment centers receive essential
building blocks for their growth
and education, including develop-
ment of social, motor and literacy
skills, age-appropriate play and
good-health practices. Children
at RCMA's Mira Verde and LaBelle
centers speak Spanish at home -
their parents work in farming and
plant nurseries - so English lan-
guage learning is a priority.
RCMA is funded by local, state
and federal grants, as well as the
generosity of businesses, indi-
viduals, the United Way and other
organizations. For more informa-
tion, see www.rcma.org.

Lake wildfires 'dead out'


Glades County-The last wild-
fire inside Lake Okeechobee is
controlled or "dead out." Myakka
Cut Wildfire inside Lake Okeecho-
bee is controlled at 38,000 acres.
The wildfire was first reported 2
miles inside the lake on May 2, at
10:20 a.m. Myakka Cut Wildfire
was controlled on Monday, June
23, at 10 a.m.
The Florida Division of Forestry
~Sould like to thank the following
agencies for their tireless efforts in
actively fighting and continuous


monitoring this wildfire: Glades
County Fire/Rescue, South FL Wa-
ter Management District, US Army
Corps of Engineers, Clewiston
Fire Rescue, Florida Department
of Agriculture, FL Department of
Transportation, Florida Highway
Patrol and Glades County Sheriff.
Without everyone's collabora-
tion and cooperation this wildfire
could have been more of a threat
to the communities that border
the lake.

LHS summer football camp a first


This past week, 3rd

School's first ever Summer
Football Camp. There were
42 athletes in attendance that
were divided into an older
group (8th through 11th grad-
ers) and a younger group (3rd
through 7th graders). These
athletes took part in four days
of training put on by mem-
bers of the Cowboy Football
coaching staff, and some for-
mer players.
The activities included
chalk talk and watching film,
as well as agility drills, basic
offensive and defensive fun-
damentals and special teams.
The athletes even got time
in their 40-yard dash and the
pro-agility shuttle drill, much
like they would at a college
combine.
The athletes also compet-

of football. This allowed the
athletes to put their skills they
learned in the classroom and
in practice to the test. The last
day of the camp was conclud-
ed with a 4-on-4 tournament.
After the 4-on-4 tourna-
ment was finished Head


Football Coach Hal Bennett
presented the camp T-shirt
and MVP awards. The MVP
for the younger group was
Jake Martinez. Jake showed
exceptional knowledge of the
game as well as attentiveness
in drills and good hustle on
the field.
The MVP for the older
group is an up-coming junior
for the LaBelle Cowboys, Ro-
berto Deras. Deras, an offen-
sive tackle and defensive end
for the Cowboys, also showed
tremendous hustle and work
ethic during the camp.
Coach Bennett would like
to send a special thanks to

Once the chicken was

State announces proposed purchase of USSC


CLEWISTON - June 24, 2008
- The proposal announced by
Governor Crist is the right thing for
the State of Florida and appears
to be at a fair price for our share-
holders. It will preserve 187,000
acres of land (292 square miles or
three times the size of the city of
Orlando) located in environmen-
tally strategic areas that will help
resolve restoration issues for Lake
Okeechobee, the Caloosahatchee
and St. Lucie estuaries and the
Everglades. Sufficient land also
will be available for critical wa-
ter storage and treatment. This
acquisition should allow remain-
ing Everglades Agricultural Area
farmers and the Everglades to be
sustainable.
Even as the Governor has an-
nounced the District's planned
acquisition of the assets of U.S.
Sugar, we remain proud of our
farming history in South Florida.
The majority of our stockhold-
ers have held this investment for
many decades and many of our


employees' families have worked
on our farms and in our sugar fac-
tories for generations.
Although many of the details of
the proposal need to be worked
out, we expect to operate our
businesses for at least a six-year
transition period. This will enable
us to fulfill our long-term existing
business obligations. During this
transition period, BMO Capital
Markets Corporation will act as
financial advisor to U.S. Sugar.
This transition will also allow our
employees and the communities
around the lake to move in a new
direction with new economic and
lifestyle opportunities. In addi-
tion, it will give the government
agencies time to plan the use of
this land.
This is a bittersweet moment
for a company that has been
farming this land for more than
four generations. However, we
believe the causedi
good and U.S. Sugar is proud
to be part of this historic opportu-


nity with Governor Crist to make
extraordinary progress in Ever-
glades restoration and restore
much of the natural footprint of
South Florida.
Mahoney comments
(Clewiston, FL) - Following the
announcement that the State
of Florida and South Florida
Water Management District have
reached a $1.7 billion deal to
buy 187,000 acres of U.S. Sugar
Corp.'s lands, Congressman Tim
Mahoney issued this statement:
"The State of Florida's deci-
sion to have South Florida Water
Management purchase 187,000
acres of land owned by U.S.
Sugar Corp. holds the promise of
taking a major step towards Ev-
erglades restoration. Converting
this farmland into filter marshes
will mean a greater and cleaner
flow of water into the Everglades,
lessening the need to use the Ca-
loosahatchee and St Lucie Riv-


ers as runoff. It will improve our
estuaries and help our coastal
communities. Today's decision
provides an important comple-
ment to Congress' recent passage
of the Water Resources Develop-
ment Act (WRDA), which has fi-
nally positioned the Federal Gov-
ernment to live up to its promise
to help fund Everglades restora-
tion. Furthermore, Everglades
restoration is critical for South
Florida's economic development
as it will provide fresh water for
our region.
Since coming to Congress,
one of my top priorities has been
to create jobs with a future for ru-
ral Florida around Lake Okeecho-
bee. While all Floridians applaud
this bold move to restore the Ev-
erglades, we must recognize our
responsibility to the tens of thou-
sands of people of Hendry, Palm
Beach and Glades Counties. A
comprehensive economic devel-
opment plan must be developed
immediately to ensure that these

Can you be rude while using
email? Of all Internet activities,
email in the most popular. Nearly
88 percent of Internet users in the
U.S. use email. So if you are using
email for your correspondence, it
pays to be courteous.
For example, if you write the
message in your email in ALL
CAPITAL LETTERS, your recipi-

them. But don't default to all low-

It is important to be concise.
State your main point in the first
paragraph. Spell out your words
and use proper grammar and
punctuation.
Also, never put anything in an
email that you would not put on
a postcard. It is very public and
not secure and any recipient can
forward your message to anyone
else. Don't put your social security

Pioneer 4-H'ers craft quilts at camp


' Pioneer 4-H Quilt Summer
camp was held June 9-13. A total
of 19 attended during the week.
This year the 4-H'ers helped
with the "Linus Project," Project
named after the adorable security
blanket-toting character from the
Peanuts comic strip.
/ Project Linus is a 100 percent
volunteer non-profit organiza-
tion with a two-fold mission.
Fjrst is to provide a sense of se-
curity, warmth, comfort and love
to children who are seriously ill,


traumatized or otherwise in need
through the gifts of new, hand-
made blankets and afghans, lov-
ingly created by volunteer ""blan-
keteers."
Second is to provide a reward-
ing and fun service opportunity
for interested individuals and
groups of local communities, for
the benefit of children.
The 4-H'ers enjoy designing
their own quilt and coordinat-
ing colors and patterns together.
Each quilt was a unique one of a


kind, from Dora the Explorer, Star
Wars, dinosaurs, kitty cats, Poke-
mon, flowers and hearts, Noah's
Ark, cowboys and Tinkerbell.
Each one was a work of art.
After the quilts were finished
Helen Hunter, the Chapter Coor-
dinator for Fort Myers was pre-
sented with 17 quilts. Ms. Hunter
presented each one of the kids
with an official Linus Project
patch that they can proudly dis-
play on a jacket or shirt.
After completing their Linus


quilt everyone made another
quilt for themselves to take home.
The quilt camp was taught by 4-H
Program Assistants Tricia Gonza-
lez and Liz Shaw, County Agent
Sonja Crawford, Kim Batton and
4-H leader Pat Bosley.
