Considering life after sugar

By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The unexpected sale of
187,000 acres of agricultural land
owned by United States Sugar
Corporation to South Florida Wa-
ter Management District (SFW-
MD) has caught Hendry County
citizens by surprise Count'y and
city lawmakers, administrators,
business people and residents'
of all walks of life are struggling
to understand the huge sale and
what it will mean for individuals
and for the county as a whole.

Tuesday morning a group of
"stakeholders" came together at
LaBelle City Hall to discuss just
what the ramifications may be.
As the initial shock begins
to wear off, people are seeking
Information and brainstorming
about building the future.
Southern Gardens executive
Tris Chapman told the audience
that some 25 million citrus trees
grow in the county - one million
of these in the purchase area.
Add to that the fact that Southern
Gardens is the most efficient cit-
rus processing plant in the world,

and the logical conclusion is that
citrus will remain an important
part of this county's economy.
He did say this "revolution-
ary development" will mean an
ownership change for Southern
Gardens, adding that the impact
of the sale is still "way down the
road." He considered the Talis-
man sale in Palm Beach Counts
in the late '90s. That property is
still producing sugar cane.
The key to the county's future
has always been development,
but the sale of USSC to the state
has produced a new urgency

into the mix that was reflected at
the meeting.
County Administrator Wayne
O'Neal said the area needs "real
time" information not rumors
to base its plans on. He said the
county will receive PILT pay-
ments from the state in perpetu-
ity or until the population reaches
150,000. Payment-in-Lieu-of-Tax-
es helps take some of the sting
out of losing tax revenues from
land taken off the tax roll.
'The City of Clewiston has
been landlocked by USSC agri-
cultural lands, but this sale could

mean that the city will be able to
Paul Pass of the Bonita Bay
Group said the sale has brought
up some questions concerning
his company's plans for putting
in developments in Clewiston,
but that those plans will still
move forward. He characterized
this as a "once in a lifetime op-
portunity" for Clewiston to trans-
form itself outside of the corpo-
rate town mold.

Deal: Shock

waves set in

By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The announcement of
United States Sugar Corpora-
tion's sale of all its facilities and
187,000 acres of agricultural
land to South Florida Water
Management has sent shock
waves through the community
from east to west.
Environmentalists are, by
and large, hailing the deal as
the last piece of the puzzle re-
establishing the direct flow of
water from the central part of
the state into the Everglades.
At the same time, folks just
trying to make a living and local
governments trying to meet de-
mands on them are scurrying to
find out just what the deal will
mean for them. Hit hard by an

already lagging economy, the
deal looms large in local gov-
ernments' budget concerns.
Hendry County Administra-
tor Wayne O'Neal said no one
is sure how the deal will affect
the county's budget. However,
he said USSC will continue to
pay property taxes as long as
it owns the land. After that, the
state will pay Hendry County
Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILT)
in perpetuity or until the popula-
tion reaches 150,000. Currently,
Hendry County's population is
around 40,000.
At a special joint meeting
July 1, commissioners from
Hendry County and the cities of
LaBelle and Clewiston met with
representatives of the South

station, while containing no hard
and fast information, presents
some interesting possibilities.
One possibility is that lands
and buildings in the City of
Clewiston may be sold to a third
party in the agricultural business,
including Southern Gardens and
the refinery. Most of the land
to be used in the restoration is
located in a stretch of land south-
east of Clewiston overlapping
into Palm Beach County.
There are concerns from the
general public that SFWMD had
pumped money into training
programs to build up a work-
force for Everglades Restoration
reservoir construction projects
which have been put on hold,
but SFWMD personnel say the
reservoirs are still on the radar.
Other possibilities include:
1. A large impact analysis
funded by water management
that will cover local govern-
ments, schools and businesses.
It will more than likely be on a
larger scale than the study the
county will do.
2. Rural Economic Develop-
ment Initiative agencies are al-
ready in the process of identify-
ing programs that will be able to

4. A committee may work on
issues ensuring job opportunities
through workforce development
and the colleges.
5. Meetings, probably starting
in August, are to be held to in-
form the public on progress.
6. A visioning process should
be started. While the county did
one two years ago, much of that
vision will not apply now. How-
ever, it may be used as a begin-
ning point.

of being involved from now on.

CERT training promotes a
partnering effort between emer-
gency services and the people
they serve. The goal is for emer-
gency personnel to train mem-
bers of neighborhoods, commu-
nity organizations or workplaces
in basic response skills. CERT
members are then integrated
into the emergency response for
their area.
If a disaster overwhelms or
delays the community's profes-
sional response, CERT members
can assist others by applying the
basic response and organiza-
tional skills they learned during
training. These skills can help
save and sustain lives follow-
ing a disaster until help arrives.
CERT skills also apply to daily
emergencies. Previous emer-

Ask your candidate?
Q: What is your position on A_ '.
taxes? _ f
A: I DO NOT believe we can tax
and spend our way into financial
prosperity. I DO NOT believe
growing a bigger county govern-
ment will stimulate business growth or a larger tax
base. I do believe in smaller, more efficient govern-
ment. Here is the real question: Should this same
philosophy apply whether we are in a recession or
in times a economic prosperity? My answer is
"YES". Even when the economy is growing, we
should still manage our county government in an
extremely conservative manner, always remember-
ing we are spending your money!

Don't lose your Homestead

The Hon. Kristina Kulpa, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser
wants everyone to remember
that if you relinquished your
Florida Homesteaded property in
2007 and are applying for or have
already applied for homestead in
2008 you may be eligible for the
new "portability exemption."
The same applies to your prop-
erty relinquished in 2008 and you
are now pre-filing for 2009 on a
new homestead.
If you qualify for portability it
will allow you to carry your cap
(Save Our Homes) with you to
your new Florida property.
If you are upsizing, meaning
the market value of your new
homestead property is greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty you will be able to carry your
"Save Our Homes" benefit forward
up to $500,000.
If you are downsizing, mean-
ing the market value of the new

homestead property is less than
the old homestead property you
will carry the SOH benefit forward
based on a percentage of old to
new homestead up to $500,000.
You can go to our website
www.hendrypa.org and down-
load the information for what you
need to bring with you to pre-file
for 2009 homestead plus an appli-
cation for portability.
If you have relinquished your
Florida homesteaded home in
2007 or 2008 but have not yet
purchased another home you can
also download a "Request For Re-
moval of Tax Exemption".
If you have additional ques-
tions please call our office and my
staff will be able to assist you. In
LaBelle call 863-675-5270 and in

Letters to the Editor

Put impetus on road
To whom it may concern:
For the past four years, I have
owned and operated a business
located in downtown LaBelle,
Florida. Over the last year, along
with the rest of the country, the
economy in LaBelle has taken a
big downturn.
Extremely high gas prices, an
over-built real estate market and a
massive mortgage meltdown has
left a lot of LaBelle businesses in
financial trouble. Construction
rollbacks, mainly due to the ma-
jor developers putting their proj-
ects on the back burner, results in
high unemployment. Even major
agri-businesses are feeling the
On Tuesday, June 17th, at 5:30
p.m, in the LaBelle Civic Center,
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation along with the Fed-
eral Highway Administration and
Glades and Hendry Counties are
hosting a workshop. This work-
shop is to get public input on
some local highway construction
projects (improvements of SR 29,
etc.). I am in complete support
of this workshop and wish it suc-
As a long time Florida busi-
nessman, who in the early nine-
ties, was contracted by the Down-
town Development Authority, in
West Palm Beach, to assist in the
revitalization of this old Florida
city. I have some suggestions.
In the past, when govern-
ment stepped in to boost local
economies, they used highway
construction projects along with

other government building proj-
ects. LaBelle could use this type
of stimulus. The improvement
project on SR 80 and 29 plus
other planned highway projects
should be put on a fast track.
I strongly believe that an al-
ready planned highway construc-
tion project (the four leaning of SR
80 from LaBelle to SR 27) would
be a good long term and short
term solution to our present eco-
nomic problems for some of the
following reasons:
SR 80 from LaBelle to SR 27,
is two lane and extremely dan-
gerous to drive especially at night
or in inclement weather and fog.
Our locals residents are used to it,
but its not a comfortable drive for
tourist, visitors and out of town
business people and workers
who may be interested in doing
business in the La Belle area.
Travelers from the west coast,
heading east on SR 80, run into
a bottleneck at LaBelle. Lee and
Hendry counties along with FDOT
have done a great job in widening
SR 80 from Ft Myers to LaBelle,
but what happened to the rest
of the project. SR 80 should be a
major east west corridor connect-
ing major metropolitan areas on
the east and west coast. LaBelle
could take financial advantage of
its location.
In the short term the SR 80
widening from La Belle to SR 27
could create much needed em-
ployment and a much faster ac-
cess to Clewiston and other east-
ern cities.
Agri-business would be helped
by providing better and safer exit
routes for its farm products and

Hopefully, our government
agencies will take my suggestions
into consideration.

Dear Editor:
During an election year when
access to health care is the sec-
ond most important domestic is-
sue cited by Americans, incredibly
Sen. Mel Martinez voted against
legislation that would ensure sta-
bility in the Medicare program for
Florida's elderly and disabled pa-
That vote means that, as of
July 1, physicians who care for
Medicare patients saw their pay-
ment slashed by 10.6 percent.
Without Congressional action to
rectify the situation, Medicare will
cut an additional 5 percent from
physician pay in 2009, according
to a June 30, announcement by
Centers for Medicare and Medic-
aid, the federal agency that over-
sees Medicare.
The impact of these cuts threat-
ens elderly and disabled patients'
access to health care because it
further drives family physicians
toward financial insolvency at
a time we're already struggling
with a shortage of primary care

In December, the Medicare
Payment Advisory Commission
reported that three out of 10
Medicare patients had trouble
finding a new primary care phy-
sician. In March, the Medical
Group Management Association
reported that nearly 24 percent of
all physicians had begun limiting
or not accepting new Medicare
patients; 46 percent would limit
or stop accepting new Medicare
patients with implementation of
the 10.6 percent pay cut that just
took effect.
Since 2001, family physicians
have worked tirelessly on behalf
of Medicare patients, even as
Medicare compensation for their
services stagnated and they strug-
gled with 20 percent inflation in
costs to keep their offices open.
No small business - as most fam-
ily physician practices are - can
sustain that kind of loss and re-
main open to care for people.
Sen. Martinez must return to
Washington and support Medi-
care payment levels that enable
family physicians to keep their
doors open.
The Senator must vote yes on
limiting debate and yes on pas-
sage of the Medicare bill, H.R.
6331. Without such a vote, we're
all at risk of losing our health
care. An insurance card has no
value unless there's a doctor in
the house.

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, July 10, 2008 5

Pistol Pete's caters to

hunters, gun enthusiasts

Outdoorsmen, you don't have
to travel to Fort Myers for supplies
any more.
If fact, that's exactly the reason
Tim Weathington and his wife,.
Winn, opened their new gun
shop, Pistol Pete's. After a trek to
Fort Myers to get powder to reload
bullets, Tim ended up paying $25
for a substitute powder, plus gas
and two hours on the road. That's
when he decided to open his own
gun shop in LaBelle.
Pistol Pete's opened officially
May 3 after they got their Federal
firearms license. The response
has already been very encourag-
ing, Tim and Winn say.
They hope you'll come in
and check out their new store.
They have rifles and hand guns,
ammo, black powder, reloading
and archery supplies. They deal
in custom handguns and even
antique/collectors guns. Buy, sell,
trade. They also do gun repair
and cleaning.
Come in for Dixie Outfitter
and Buck Wear T-shirts; gloves
and ball caps available with more
camo clothing to come.
Personal defense items like
pepper spray, stun guns and even
tazers are available. (Note: Any-
one buying a tazer is required to
take an on-line course before they
can use it.)
Layaway and gift cards avail-
Special orders are no problem.

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Tim and Winn Weathington show off some of their rifle dis-
play at their new gun shop, Pistol Pete's, with their son, six-
year-old Zachary.

Just come in and ask.
Although most of their cus-
tomers have been proficient with
guns, they also cater to those who
are not. For instance, Tim has
plans to set up personal defense
classes later with an NRA certified
This is the first business venture
for Tim and Winn. Tim worked in
a gun shop previously and has
been a hunter and outdoorsman
all his life, so he has a lifetime of
expertise to put into the business.
Winn spent 17 years in banking.
The store is very much a fam-
ily affair, with the couple's older

children, TJ and Nick, helping to
run the store. Both are familiar
with guns and outdoor needs.
Daughter Brittney is a whizz at
the cash register and even six-
year-old Zachary helps out with
stocking shelves.
Eventually, they expect to ex-
pand into archery and fishing
Look for a grand opening in
the coming weeks.
Pistol Pete's, 417 SR 80W, is
open Tuesday-Friday from noon
till 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10
a.m. -7 p.m. and also by appoint-
ment. Call 612-4868.

Venta de La Azucarera
Clewiston: Una cosa estuvo
cierta en una reunion de emer-
gencia que hubo el jueves pasado
en el Auditorio Boy y es que los
residents de las ciudades locales
sienten que no tienen voz ni voto
con el future de la economic de
la cual ellos dependent para so-
brevivir. La Compafifa de Azicar
vendi6 parte de sus terrenos in-
cluyendo el Molino al Estado para
restaurar el ecosistema del agua
en los pantanos.
Los lideres varias veces pre-
guntaron por tener voz y voto
mas fuertes en las discusiones
de la venta de la azucarera en el
Estado de La Florida ya que ellos
estin preocupados y Ilenos de in-
certidumbre sobre el future de la
economia del Condado Hendry al
perder al financiador mas grande
que es La Azucarera.
A la reunion asistieron repre-
sentantes de Clewiston, LaBelle,
Hendry y La Directora Ejecutiva
del Distrito Manejador del Agua
del Sur de Florida Carol Wehel.
"Nosotros no nos oponemos a la
venta de la compafifa, lo que nos
preocupa es la que va a pasar con
la economia del Condado Hen-
dry" dijo Kevin McCarthy comi-
sionado de Hendry.
La sefiora Wehel asegur6 a la
audiencia que el Distrito no tiene
planes de quitar la producci6n
del Molino de azicar." "La oferta
que nos hicieron fue o les ven-
demos todo o nada (por la tierra)
nosotros no necesitamos toda la
tierra, estimamos que el Distrito
puede usar 120.000 acres de los
187.000 que La Compafifa queria
De acuerdo con ella la espe-
ranza del Distrito es que otras
compafiia compren las plants
procesadoras, ella piensa que el
area continuard operando sus re-
cursos de agriculture. Los efectos
de la compra y restauraci6n del
proyecto de restaurar los pan-
tanos van a ocurrir dentro de
unos 10 o 15 afios cuando la con-
strucci6n, disefio y plans est6n
listos. "Los 1.7000 trabajos que
la azucarera tiene ahora no van
a desaparecer porque el Distrito
estA muy consciente del impact
que esto causarfa". "Siempre fu-
eron nuestras intenciones en las
negociaciones de mantener el
Molino, no lo vamos a cerrar pero
tampoco podemos mantenerlo
Carl Berner, comerciante
local dijo a los oficiales en la
reuni6n:"La noticia de la venta
de la azucarera para mi es como
que si me hubieran Ilamado para
decirme que mis padres habian
muerto." "No tenemos ninguna
garantia de que el Molino va a
continuar trabajando.
Los oficiales estuvieron de
acuerdo en reunirse con los li-
deres otra vez en dos semanas.
"Tengan coraz6n, trabajen con
nosotros ya que nosotos estare-
mos trabajando con ustedes" dijo
Charles Dauray quien es miem-
bro del consejo del gobierno lo-
cal con jurisdicci6n en los Distri-
tos: Lee, Collier, Hendryy Carlota.

On Tuesday evening, May 21, 14
LMS CROP (College Reach-Out Pro-
gram) members traveled from LMS
to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre
in Fort Myers for the annual CROP
Middle Schools Awards Ceremony.
Each member also brought a guest,
which included some family mem-
bers, friends and fellow classmates,
together with CROP Advisor Connie
Carter and LMS Teacher Craig Me-
This event was to celebrate the
successful year of the twelve middle
school CROP groups in Lee, Collier and
Hendry Counties, and was hosted by
FGCU's Office of Outreach Programs.
This FGCU office provides assistance
and support to underrepresented stu-
dents, and facilitates their participa-
tion and success in post-secondary
education. We are proud that both
Dr. Sally Berg, Hendry County School
Board and Mr. Thomas Conner, Su-
perintendent of Hendry County Pub-
lic Schools, serve as members of the
CROP Advisory Committee for FGCU.
Dr. Berg also works tirelessly as Com-
munity Liaison for College Reach-Out
Program and PSEP/Scholars Club for
FGCU, and was instrumental in bring-
ing the College Reach-Out Program
to Hendry County this year. Mr. Con-
ner has also provided strong support
for the new CROP groups in Hendry

County this year, including being a
sponsor for this 2007-2008 Annual
Recognition Awards Ceremony. Mr.
Conner states "The goals of CROP
and Scholars Club coincide well with
the mission of our schools which is to
provide quality educational opportu-
nities which maximize our students'
academic growth and achievement."
After arriving at Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre, everyone was treated
to a lovely buffet dinner before the
evening's program began. Support-
ers (including Mr. Conner) were rec-
ognized, program highlights of the
year were announced, and the school
principals were also recognized. The
LaBelle students were delighted that
their Assistant Principal Mr. Marcus
Jenkins was there on behalf of Prin-
cipal Gary White to represent LMS.
The keynote address, delivered by Ms.
Cheryl Seals-Gonzalez, Director of
Equity and Compliance at FGCU, was
rousing and inspirational, and then
the Awards Ceremory began.
The first awards given were to
Most Improved CROP Students, those
children who had worked hard to im-
prove either grades or overall attitude.
The LMS students who were honored
with this award were seventh grad-
ers Nurielis Vasquez and Brandon
Bahamundi. The second category of
awards was Most Outstanding CROP

Students, specifically members who
had excellent attendance at meetings
and organized and/or participated in
most (if not all) CROP activities at their
school. From LaBelle Middle, these
two students worked hard to earn this
award: seventh grader Josue Gonza-
lez and eighth grader, Christy Green.
Following the individual awards it
was time for school awards, and the
LMS group was thrilled when it was
announced they received the Most
Outstanding New CROP Program for
2007-2008! All the members received
pendants and the school received a
beautiful silver platter, which will be
proudly displayed in the new LMS Ad-
ministration Building.
Closing remarks wrapped up the
evening and everyone climbed on
the bus for the trip back to LaBelle.
The community support for this LMS
group was evident even when they
arrived back at LMS about 9:30 p.m.,
as the Hendry County Sheriff's Office
provided a deputy on site to insure
that everyone would be safe while
waiting for rides,home. It was a long
but exhilarating evening, a fabulous
culmination to a great first year for
the CROP members at LaBelle Middle
School. Students came home with
many ideas on how to make the 2008-
2009 LMS College Reach-Out Program
even better!

Ave Maria

AVE MARIA, Fla. - (June 19,
2008) - The American Academy
for Liberal Education (AALE), a
national accreditor of liberal arts
colleges, located in Washington,
DC, granted accreditation to Ave
Maria University (AMU), thus
rendering AMU a fully accredited
institution of higher education
that offers quality baccalaureate
degree programs in the liberal
arts and sciences. The announce-
ment was made by AMU Chan-
cellor, Thomas S. Monaghan.
"This is a significant day for the
University as we receive accredi-
tation from AALE," Monaghan
said. "This affirmation of our
strong commitment to providing
our students with a rigorous and
well rounded liberal arts educa-
tion is another step in our growth
as a university. I am grateful to
our faculty, staff and administra-
tion for their diligence exhibited
throughout the accreditation pro-
As an AALE accredited institu-
tion, AMU is recognized as having
institutional integrity and a strong
commitment to liberal education.
Membership certifies that the
university meets or exceeds the
Academy's independently estab-
lished Education Standards which
require students to complete de-
manding core studies in the arts,
sciences, and humanities taught
by senior as well as junior faculty.
AALE's Education Standards
provide stakeholders in higher
education, including parents and
prospective students, with a clear
means for identifying' curricula
with a focused, well-articulated
core of languages, history, math-
ematics, science, literature, phi-
losophy, and other elements of a
liberal education.
"We are very proud of the edu-
cation that we offer at Ave Maria
University, and we are pleased
that the AALE has recognized the
hard work and dedication that
has gone into developing this
strong academic program," said
Ave Maria University President,
Nicholas J. Healy. "An Ave Ma-
ria degree has always stood for
outstanding quality of Catholic
liberal arts education. Our gradu-
ates are prepared to be among
the intellectual leaders of the 21st
"I am personally grateful to
the AALE for its efforts and due
diligence," Healy continued. "Ave
Maria is committed to building
a university that will earn a con-
tinued reputation for excellent
teaching, cutting-edge research,
and joyful fidelity to the Magiste-
rium of the Catholic Church."
AMU has a well-rounded
liberal arts education program
offering majors in Biology, Clas-
sics & Early Christian Literature,
Economics, History, Literature,
Mathematics, Philosophy, Politics,
Sacred Music and Theology.

Except for a short downpour,
Mother Nature smiled on La-
Belle's Fourth of July festivities
in Barron Park. The gullywasher
washed away the chalk markings
for the cupcake walk but didn't
dampen any spirits. When it was
all over, the games went on as
planned. In the meantime, folks
just watched the water fall as
they ate under the protection of
the pavilion.
The small but enthusiastic
raft race went as scheduled at
5 p.m. with The Little Dinghy

Belle Kiwanis Club, matched up
against the Florida Community
Bank entry, $$ Double Dollars.
Matt Soud and Roy Campbell co-
captained the Little Dinghy and
Becky Connell was captain for
the five-member crew of the $$

the Little Dinghy out-gunned
with two paddlers on board and

Then kids had a ball hula

their mouths as fast as possible,
putting their all into the jelly bean
spitting contest and the clothing
relay race. Folks from Christ Cen-

moving with lots of games.

from LaBelle who died in service
