Election 2008: Washington bound?
~'Iki~~~L '' "" ::A.. 'a l


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
LaBelle High School students attended the Republican Party of Hendry County's annu-
al Lincoln Reagan Dinner Saturday, Sept. 27, at the LaBelle Civic Center. The students
were all FBLA members and were learning first hand about the political process. Pic-
tured from left: sophomore Lucas Talada, Griselda Santiago, US Congressional District
16 candidate Tom Rooney, C'leena Birch, Mike Reed and Brytnie Jasiak.


Rooney speaks to conservatives


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Hendry County citizens have
a lot to think about this election
year from hotly contested local
races to the most far-reaching
positions in the country. At ev-
ery level, these decisions will
guide our future.
Tom Rooney, Republican
candidate for US Congressional
District 16, brought his cam-
paign to LaBelle at the annual
Lincoln-Reagan Dinner Sept.
27.
He is a 37-year-old former
US Army Captain and JAG pros-
ecutor, who grew up in Palm
Beach County and considers
himself "lucky for this oppor-
tunity."
He said he is a strict Consti-
tutionalist and taught Consti-
tutional law at West Point. He
said he believes in the Found-
ing Fathers' precept that the
most power should be kept. at
the local level.
An inflated federal govern-
ment, he said, hurts locals.
Mr. Rooney served as As-
sistant Attorney General under
Governor Crist and as a crimi-
nal prosecutor for the Office of
the Attorney General.
He is currently in private
practice with the Stuart firm
of Kramer, Sopko and Leven-
stein, PA. He and his wife, Tara,
are the parents of three small
boys.
Mr. Rooneyt is the CEO of a
shelter for abused children in
Palm Beach County 50 kids any
given night.
Here's how Mr. Rooney sees
some of the top questions of
the day:


Energy
Energy independence is
an absolute necessity for this
country. He is a proponent of
offshore drilling but feels that
Florida should get revenue
sharing from that drilling. He
said that Florida should get a
cut of the profits off the top, like
Louisiana.
We are obligated to prepare
the world for our children, he
believes, and that means mak-
ing this country energy self
sufficient. He believes nuclear
power should be a big part of
that self sufficiency as should
wind and solar power as well
as natural gas. He also believes
that his country has the ability
to figure out any storage prob-
lem that using alternate fuels
might entail.

Environment
We have an obligation to be
good stewards of the land, he
said. Water quality issues, par-
ticularly the health of Florida
rivers like the Caloosahatchee,
is essential.

Economy
With the US and world
economies in a continuing
downturn, Mr. Rooney is very
cautious about any plan to
make things better and is philo-
sophically opposed to buy outs.
However, he has three test
questions for any possible solu-
tion to the current overwhelm-
ing situation: Will it expand the
scope of government?; Will it
protect the taxpayer?; and Will
it reward bad actors?


In the future, the govern-
ment must safeguard its pledge
to lower taxes and do away
with wasteful earmarks, keep-
ing more money in taxpayers'
pockets.
"Spending is out of control,"
he pointed out, "that's why
people feel disenfranchised by
Washington." He looks to the
good economic times of JFK
and Reagan, with low taxes
and low spending, as models.

Across the aisle
If elected, he said he would
"absolutely" be able to work
with Democrats. He said he ab-
hors partisan bickering, point-
ing out that our representatives
must get past it in order to get
to real solutions. He said he
worked for Republican Con-
nie Mack some years ago and
noted that Congressman Mack
had a great relationship with
Democratic Sen. Graham.

Terrorism
American freedom and lib-
erty are based on our safety, Mr.
Rooney said, which terrorism
directly threatens. It is a com-
plex problem but the standard
should be: What is in our na-
tional best interest? Will an ac-
tion make the US safer?
He believes that, since 9/11,
America has improved is capac-
ity to identify the next emerging
threat, but that diligence is key
to facing down this challenge.
Leadership is needed in
Washington, DC, he notes, and
to Mr. Rooney that also means

Christ Central: Eye on its future


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Christ Central Pastor Shan-
non Craft has some very big
dreams.
The church opened qui-
etly in LaBelle in October 2006,
with about five people meeting
in a home. Soon the little group
outgrew that intimate setting
and they leased the old Fussell
Steel Building on Main Street.
With 210-250 people com-
ing every Sunday to services,
Christ Central now has two
services every Sunday and will
begin having services at the La-
Belle High School Auditorium.
As of Oct. 5 there will be one
service every Sunday at 10:30


a.m., with the approval of the
Hendry County School Board.
With 470 seats Shannon be-
lieves the auditorium will suf-
fice for a while.
Shannon and Christ Central
continue to work toward his
dream. That's why the church
has bought five acres at Cow-
boy Way and Collingswood. It's
where they plan to build their
ultimate church complex.
In the meantime, the church
members are forming the
building blocks that will come
together at the new site. The
Christ Central Academy sign
is already up on the old Long
Branch on Main Street. The
church is leasing the longtime


bar to use as a Christian school.
Ultimately, Shannon said they
plan K-12 and even a Christian
college.
The idea for the academy
runs parallel to Christ Central's
focus to minister to the less for-
tunate; to make a Christian life-
style as accessible as possible
to all. Christ Central welcomes
everyone the down-and-out,
the addict, the prostitute; those
shunned by society; those who,
for whatever reason, do not
feel comfortable at a more tra-
ditional church.
The first phase of Christ Cen-
tral's complex will be a sanc-

Glades crash


Authorities are investigating
a fatal crash at SR 29N and SR
78 in Glades County. The crash,
which claimed six lives, took
place at about 6:33 a.m. Mon-
day, Sept. 29.
According to the Florida
Highway Patiol, the collision
involved a 1993 Chevrolet van
and a sand truck coming from
the Ortona Sand Co. The truck
was westbound on SR78 and
struck the van, which was
headed north on SR 29.
Authorities say 66-year-old


Ewing Saunders ran a stop sign
in his tractor-trailer hauling
sand and plowed into the van
driven by Jose Martin Saavedra,
35, of Immokalee. Everyone in
the van perished; two had been
wearing seatbelts, according
to a Fort Myers News-Press ac-
count. FHP and the Medical Ex-
aminer continue to try to iden-
tify all the victims.
Mr. Saunders was transport-
ed to Lee Memorial Hospital in
critical conditional.


County can




handle sale,




inland port


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Former state representative
and former Hendry County
commissioner Joe Spratt told
the board that he felt the county
could suspend its contract with
a Tallahassee attorney with
Holland and Knight, who is on
contract to represent Hendry
County's interests in the South
Florida Water Management
District's proposed purchase of
United States Sugar Corp. and
also the proposed inland port.
Mr. Spratt and Commission-
er Kevin McCarthy both attend
most of the USSC related meet-
ings and Mr. Sp'ratt said he's not
convinced it's a "done deal."
Finding the $1.75 billion to
purchase the property much
of which the state will have to
find another buyer for is pretty
"shaky," he said.
He also said the county
needs to fight for the proposed
inland port, adding that he feels
Hendry County has the best site
for what promises to be a huge
economic boon to whichever
community lands it.
In the end the board voted
unanimously to suspend Mr.
Curt Kiser's contract, which
may be reactivated at any time
by approval of both parties. Mr.
Spratt said he believes the work
can be handled at the staff lev-
el.

Sub-office


Commissioner McCarthy
reported on the Clewiston sub-
office, which has been vacant
since Hurricane Wilma. The
county now has an architect
and a floor plan and is getting
cost estimates as well as look-
ing at a couple buildings for
possible purchase. Meanwhile,
the county is still renting space +
to conduct its business as it
continues to make plans

EOC
Hendry County has been
approved for a $177,707 grant
under the COPS Technology
Program. The money will be
used for communications
equipment for the new Emer-
gency Operations Center to be
built west of LaBelle, just off SR
80 at Congen Drive.
The county is waiting for ap-
proval from the Department of
Interior to go forward with the
project. According to Director
of Grants and Special Projects
Ron Zimmerly, the Department
of Interior must sign off on the
project because Dol money
was used in the original pur-
chase of the site from the Berry
family.
Once ground has been bro-
ken, Matthews Construction
Company has promised it will
be completed in eight months.
The total cost should be about
$4.7 million.

Pioneer Off Highway
Park
The Pioneer Off Highway Ve-
hicle (OHV) Park is going for-
ward. Hendry County received
some $590,000 in Recreational
Trails grant money to develop
the park. However, those funds
may not be used for some ame-
nities, such as parking, an ADA
approved restroom and picnic
area. So, the county is seeking
$200,000 in grant monies from
Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP) to
help with those purposes. No
match is required for this grant.

academy to the new site. Even-
tually, the original sanctuary will
be used for youth services. When
the church grows to match Shan-
non's vision, the complex will in-
clude Christian-based businesses
operating in a Godly atmosphere.
He's looking forward to a con-
gregation of 2,000 members and
a drug rehab center. He's looking
forward to offering classes that
will help people learn to deal
with all aspects of their lives in
a Christian-based way, from fi-
nance to marriage.
Shannon said he was saved
ten years ago from a life of drugs
and robbing a life in the streets.
He said he was miserable but,
coming from a church-oriented
family with many preachers go-
ing back generations, he knew
God was the answer. He turned
his life around and became a
preacher, serving as youth pas-
tor at Freedom Fellowship and
several other churches including
Kingdom Center which he began
on his own before being led to
open Christ Central.
The biggest challenge to his
dream is the lack of money, but
Shannon said God is the pro-
vider. If he gives you the vision,
he will provide what you need to
fulfill it.
Services at Christ Central have
a decidedly contemporary flavor.
Shannon said he preaches the

In his words, "Duty and honor

In recent years, he said the US

Christ Central is not for every-
body, Shannon concedes. Servic-
es are geared to reach members
at their level. The message is the
same as at any other Christian
church, just the method is differ-
ent. At Christ Central it's "casual
dress, serious faith," Shannon
explains.
Christ Central is starting up

out LaBelle and surrounding ar-

Mark Morris


Fort Myers, Fla. (September 8,
2008) Mark Morris, President of
Commerce Bank of Southwest
Florida has been named Cam-
paign Chair for the 2008-2009
United Way Campaign.
As volunteer Campaign Chair,
Morris will oversee the efforts of
more than 1,500 volunteers work-
ing to meet this year's $8,018,000
fundraising goal.
Morris said, "I am extremely
honored to be asked to lead the
2008-2009 United Way Cam-
paign.
This community is facing eco-
nomic challenges, but I know we


can meet the $8 million goal or
exceed it. Morris, a Fort Myers na-
tive went on to say, "This is a very
giving and involved community,
and the strong volunteer spirit will
carry us through."
"If Michael Phelps can win 8
gold Olympic medals, I see no
reason our community can't raise
$8 million," he added.
Last year in our community,
more than 300,000 people's lives
were touched by United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades 156
partner programs and initiatives.
These services are fueled by an
annual campaign that raised more


than $7.6 million in 2007-2008.
Since the inception of United
Way in 1957, over $80 million has
been raised in our community.
All money raised in the United
Way campaign stays in our com-
munity to help support the local
human service network.
United Way partner agencies
and initiatives like Alvin A Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center,
Children's Advocacy Center, Big
brothers Big Sisters, LARC and
United Way 211 serve a diverse
range of needs in our community
such as nurturing children and
youth, strengthening families,


meeting critical needs such as
helping the elderly and disabled
live independently, and empow-
ering communities by bringing
health and human services to
neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds for
human service organizations in
our community, the United Way
promotes partnerships and col-


laborations among agencies and
initiatives, helping them to work
together focusing on issues and
solutions that continue to im-
prove lives.

Are you prepared for a fire emergency?


By Mike Smidt
According to the Home Safety
Council's State of Home Safety
in America"' Report, fires and
burns are the third leading cause
of unintentional home injury and
related deaths. More than 4,000
Americans die each year in fires
and approximately 20,000 are in-
jured. Oct. 5-11, 2008 is Fire Pre-
vention Week a great time to be
sure you and those around you
know how to stay safe from fire.
In any circumstance, prepara-
tion can save you from becoming
a statistic. These tips can increase
prevention and save lives, no mat-
ter where you are.
1. Install Smoke Alarms: The
most important step in keeping
your home or office safe from
fire is to make sure you have a
working smoke detector. Install
smoke detectors on every level
of your home or office and test
them monthly. It is also vital to
replace batteries yearly. Smoke
alarms lose their sensitivity over
time, so you must also remember
to replace home alarms every 10
years.
2. Have an Emergency Plan:
At home, plan escape routes with
your family. Make sure everyone
is aware of all exits in each room.
Also, decide on a safe meet-


ing place outside of your home
and have the family practice this
plan twice a year. Most offices
have escape routes planned and
diagramed for employees and cli-
ents. Be familiar with all exits in
your building.
3. Invest in a Fire Extinguisher:
It is good to have a few working
fire extinguishers in your home
and office, located in the kitchen,
garage, near the fireplace and
throughout the workplace. You
should learn how to use the fire
extinguisher by taking a fire safety
course, because during an emer-
gency there is no time to read di-
rections.
4. Prevent Kitchen Fires: Most
fires start when food is left un-
attended on the stove or in the
oven. Keep the cooking area
clean to prevent grease build up.
Remember to never cook with
loose sleeves that can ignite eas-
ily, and never throw water on a
grease fire.
5. Operate Space Heaters Safe-
ly: Heating equipment is respon-
sible for a large share of fires in
homes. Extra precautions should
be taken with alternate heat
sources such as wood stoves or
electric space heaters. Do not use
electric space heaters in the bath-
room or around other wet areas
and never dry or store objects on


top of a heater.
6. Smoking Safely: Cigarettes
are the number one cause of fatal
house fires in the United States.
Never smoke in bed and empty
ashtrays into a fire-safe contain-
er before leaving the house or
sleeping. And, if you do choose
to smoke, play it safe and smoke
outside.
7. Take Alarms Seriously: Your
business should provide you with
a fire prevention program that
includes regular fire-drills and up-
-to-date floor plans.
You should never take a fire
alarm lightly. It is your duty to get
out of the building safely.
8. Inspect Your Space: You
want to make sure that all rooms
are free of fire hazards. Do not
overload electrical outlets or tan-
gle extension cords. Any frayed or
broken wires should be replaced.
Do not route extension cords un-
der carpets or doors.
Cords can short-circuit, over-
heat and ignite under rugs and
may become pinched or broken
in doors. Also, make sure that
your windows and doors open
properly in case you would need
to quickly escape.
9. Install Residential Sprinklers:


While most businesses have had
automatic sprinkler systems in-
stalled in their buildings for years,
many homeowners are now pur-
chasing them. Sprinkler systems
give extra assurance to families
as well as offer lower insurance
costs.
10. Stop, Drop and Roll: This is
the most simple and effective fire
safety tip to extinguish a fire on
your body.
Stop where you are. Drop to
the ground and cover your eyes.
Roll over and over until the fire
goes out
Many deaths and injuries
will be prevented if we all take
the time to ensure the safety of
our homes and businesses. Be
knowledgeable on fire safety and
fire hazards and educate those
around you.

CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!
Dear Friends,
I would like to thank the Board of County
Commissioners for holding the 2008 county
millage rate at 6.5 at last week's meeting to .
give some tax relief to our taxpayers. Our
Property Appraiser was at that meeting urg-
ing the commissioners to reduce the tax rate.
My question is, where was she when we
needed answers last year? The citizens of
Hendry County attended a commission meet-' ,
ing last year looking for answers. She was pV'..
invited to explain and defend the property val- 9"'
ues. There was no representation from her or
her office. Then again, it wasn't an election year with opposition.
I'd like to thank you again for supporting me in the Primary Election. I
look forward to meeting and making new friends while campaigning before
the General Election. I have received a lot of phone calls and e-mails and
I was happy to respond and explain to your satisfaction.
Thank you and God Bless,
Your Friend,
Phillip Pelletier

KULPA HOLDS HER OWN: Kristina Kulpa emerged Tuesday
night as a champion leader for Hendry County property owners when
she dared to stand before a less than amiable Board of County Com-
missioners to tell them not to raise our tax millage.
There were jeers from a few "Courthouse know-it-alls" and wise-
cracks from a couple of the Commissioners but her nerve, her lady-
like demeanor, her leadership skills, and her empathy for us struggling
homeowners held fast.
What is right is what she presented to the Board and what her own
office represents.
This year's 6.5 millage will provide sufficient funding for Hendry
County to move forward if Board members simply begin looking for
and enacting money saving innovations.
Raising the thermostats one degree, limiting vehicle usage to nec-
essary travel in and out of the County, eliminating redundant tasks
between departments are good places to begin.
Undoubtedly there are dozens more to be found when Commis-
sioners begin thinking innovatively rather than reacting to and fighting
change.
Thank you, Kristina Kulpa, you indeed are a rare rose among elect-
ed officials and a credit to your County, your gender, and your chosen
profession.


Thank You

Letters to the Editor


Hendry County Taxing
Authorities:
In these trying economic times
it is the responsibility of all gov-
ernment to step up, plan ahead
and make the hard choices that
will ultimately benefit the people.
As your Property Appraiser
I have stepped up by reducing
my budget, cutting back on staff,
renegotiating maintenance con-
tracts, reevaluating policies angl
procedures to eliminate redun-
dancies and improve efficiency.
I have also significantly reduced
administrative fees charged to
Special Districts.
My office is in the final phase of
eliminating paper in many of our
processes, which will increase ac-
curacy, reduce cost and provide
for quick restoration in the event
of a disaster and again increasing
efficiency.
Because of our resourceful-
ness we have been successful in
continuing to use our outdated
Computer Assisted Mass Ap-
praisal system to produce a timely
property tax roll in the face of un-
precedented changes in property
tax laws.
This action has saved the
county an estimated $500,000
plus yearly maintenance fees,
which is the current price for a
new (CAMA) system.
Many counties with systems
similar to ours were unable to
timely submit their property tax
rolls and were forced to delay
the process of TRIM and budget
hearings for this year which could
result in delayed revenue collec-
tion.
We have developed a strategic
plan to deal with the new chal-
lenges that we will face in the
future, such as fluctuations in
the real estate market, new laws,
voter approved amendments, the
potential sale of U.S. Sugar and
any unknown challenges still to
come.
By planning ahead, my office
will be proactive rather than reac-
tive.
With continuous planning


and hard work we will be able to
maintain services for our custom-
ers and produce a timely certifi-
ably property tax roll in the face of
the hard economic times ahead.
I have reduced my budget, cut
staff and if needed, I will reduce
it further.
I will step up, plan ahead,
make the hard choices and I ask
you to do the same.
Sincerely,
Kristina A. Kulpa
Hendry County
Property Appraiser

Were you invited?
Tuesday night the County
Commissioners finally heard the
voices of the tax payers in La-
Belle. The millage rate was reset
to 6.5. Seems they had a little
spare change tucked away for a
rainy day.
I believe it was 7 million or so
in hurricane funds saved since
pre-FEMA times. I wonder how
much interest has been garnered
and whose bank is holding' that
little pot of money?
If this whole episode has
shown us all anything it has
shown us that the commissioners
and administration needs a seri-
ous change of attitude.
Somewhere they have lost
sight of the fact that the tax pay-
ers, you and I, are footing the bill.
Prior to the budget hearing a
county employee asked the com-
missioners for $2,500 for a bar-
becue for folks who were being
invited on a tour regarding the
proposed storage site for shipping
containers in the southeast of the
county.
Without a question, without
even a moment's hesitation the
request was granted.
Think about this folks $2,500
for lunch.
My taxes run about $1,250 a
year. That lunch, in essence, is
being funded by two years of my
* tax dollars. Two years, mind you,
of my being very careful of how I
spend my fixed income so that I
can pay my taxes
The county has, without the


blink of an eye, blown two years
worth of my money on a LUNCH!
No questions asked.
How about asking how many
people are being invited? 200,
100, 50, 25?
Do the math folks that's a lot
of money for a lot of ribs. And
who is catering this lunch? And
where is this going to be held?
And what benefit is the county
going to derive from this?
1 guess the commissioners
don't need to ask because I am
pretty certain most of them will
be there to chow down.
The churches and social ser-
vices in LaBelle are struggling to
keep up with the taxpayers who
are now coming with utility cut
off notices, foreclosure notices,
taxpayers reduced to asking for
a bag of food for the first time in
their lives.
Some are being turned away
as funds dry up. An extra $2,500
would mean a lot to these folks,
but our tax dollars are being used
for lunch. How's that for a poor
attitude. By the way were you in-
vited to the barbecue?
Rita Dunne

Republican for Steve
Whidden for Sheriff
I've lived in LaBelle for over
eight years and during that time
I have seen LaBelle grow signifi-
cantly. Unfortunately, so has the
crime rate.
I have witnessed domestic
violence, shootings, robberies
and especially the drug industry
steadily rise. I have also seen a
steady rise in gang activity in our
town.
Most of this crime increase
has been on Sheriff Ronnie Lee's
watch. Granted, there have been
several grow houses shut down
which is good, but most of them
have been in the central county
area.
With all this focus on grow
houses I have not heard nor seen
a lot done with the other narcot-
ics that plague our city.
There are areas of LaBelle


where crack and cocaine drug
dealers fight over who can get
to your car the fastest. In fact it is
worse now than I have ever seen
it but I never hear of any drug
busts in these areas. My question
is why? Under Sheriff Worley's ad-
ministration, there were four big
drug busts a year in these areas
keeping it under control. All this
was led by former Hendry County
Investigator and DBA Agent Steve
Whidden. I will say one thing
about Mr. Lee; he is one heck of
a campaigner. I don't know about
other people but I have a severe
case of Ronnie Leeitis. In the last
four years you can't open the Ca-
loosa Belle without seeing a pic-
ture of guess who.
I feel that the deputies who are
actually doing the work are being
berated.
You will never see them in the
paper. Mr. Lee, the days of the
hero riding in on his horse are
over.
The Sheriff's Office is not a one
man show. I personally think that
it is time for you to get off your
horse and go do your job.
Steve Whidden has been a
deputy, Clewiston Police officer
and a DBA Agent who has trav-
eled to many foreign countries
bringing down drug cartels.
Where have you been, Ron-
nie Lee? Five years as a Clewiston
Police Officer and the rest of your
career as a State Attorney Inves-
tigator.
For those of you who don't
know what they do, they merely
assist the attorney's with taking
statements and bring the victims
to court.
During this election, I am put-
ting party line politics aside. In this
election I am voting for the best
man for the job, Steve Whidden,
who in my opinion is far more
qualified for the job. I am asking
my fellow Republicans to also put
aside party politics and vote for
Steve Whidden.
This is our town and our coun-
ty. It's time for the citizens to stand
up and take back what is ours.
Respectfully,
Ron Hendershot


Performance evaluations tell a story


The longer the political cam-
paign marathon continues to clog
up all of our lives, the more judge-
mental I become about the quali-
fications and performances of
any and all levels of government.
I have a brother-in-law in Indiana
who has a favorite expression he
invariably uses upon completion
of any handy man or other per-
sonal activity.
Upon completion he always
says, "Not bad for government
work." It was with that statement
ringing in my ears that I eagerly
accepted a report generated by
a Federal Government agency
reporting on actual quotes taken
from government employee per-
formance evaluations.
1. "Since my last report, this
employee has reached rock-bot-
tom and is still digging."
2. "1 would restrict this em-
ployee-from breeding."
3. "This employee is really not
so much of a has-been, but more
like a definite won't be."
4. "Works well when constant-
ly supervised and cornered like a
rat in a trap."
5. "When she opens her
mouth, it seems that it is only to
change feet."


6. "This employee has delu-
sions of adequacy."
7. "He sets low personal stan-
dards and then consistently fails
to achieve them.
8. "This employee is depriving
a village somewhere of an idiot."
9. "This employee should go
far, and the sooner he starts, the
better."
10. "He's got a full 6-pack, but
lacks that plastic thingy, to pull it
all together."
11. "A gross ignoramus---144
times worse than an ordinary ig-
noramus.".
12. "He doesn't have ulcers,
but is a carrier and the local dis-
tributor."
13. "He's been around the glue
pot too long."
14. "He would argue with a
signpost and lose."
15. "He brightens up a whole
room just by leaving it."
16. "If and when his IQ ever
hits 50, he should sell."
17. "If you see two people talk-
ing and one looks bored, he's the
one talking."
18. "He has a photographic
memory, but forgets to take the
lens cap off."
19. "A prime candidate for nat-


ural de-selection."
20. "Donated his brain to sci-
ence before he learned how to'
use it."
21. "The gates are down, the
gate lights are flashing, but the
train is not in sight,"
22. "He has two brain cells,
one is lost and the other is out
looking for it."
23. "If he were any more stu-
pid, he'd have to be watered at
least twice a week."
24. "If you give him a penny
for his thoughts, expect to get
change back."
25. "If you stand close enough
to him, you can hear the ocean."
26. "It is hard to believe he beat
out 1,000,000 other sperm."
27. "He's one neuron short of
a synapse."
S28. Some people drink from
the fountain of knowledge, but he
only sipped and gargled."
29. "If he were twins, he'd be
twice as stupid."
30. "The wheel is turning, but
the hamster is deceased." Wow!
And this is what the evaluations
of those remaining on the public
payroll consist of?
I hesitate to wonder what if
anything constitutes terms for


dismissal, and can best leave it
to Will Rogers to possibly help us
understand. Will Rogers, a favor-
ite political humorist of my Dad
and millions of other people over
70 years ago, he loved to satiri-
cally address Congress and politi-
cians short comings.
He is credited with saying
"That if you ever injected truth
into politics, there would be no
politics." He observed that "I
don't make jokes.
I just watch the government
and report the facts", and "There
is no trick to being a humorist
when you have the whole gov-
ernment working for you."
When it came to elections, he
said 70 years ago, "Elections are a
good deal like marriages.
There's no accounting for any-
one's taste. Every time we see a
bridegroom, we wonder why she
ever picked him, and its the same
with public officials."
So I have to give my brother-in-
law credit for his intuitive analysis
when he says, "Not too bad for
Government Work."
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville


Your heart: What'cha got hidden in there?


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
Do you remember as a kid
having a favorite place to hide
when the kids in your neighbor-
hood played "Hide'n'Seek?"
If you were like me, I was
pretty confident that my favorite
hiding places were as secure as
Ft. Knox.
I would have put "big money"
on the fact that no one would ever
think to look for me in that place.
I remember thinking if the
"bad guys" who escaped from
jail ever came "here", the FBI
wouldn't be able to locate them
and the bloody hounds would
probably just go barking right on
past and lose the scent.
Or, do you remember where,
as a kid, you hid your "treasures?"
You know what I'm talking about,
don't you?
Valuables like notes from
school, books of matches, knives,
a little money ($.58 in case you
needed a bus ticket to run away),
and maybe a picture of two of
someone you had a crush on. Re-
member those?
The reality remains what we
did as kids, we still have a ten-
dency to do as adults we hide
things.
We all have "secrets" and no
one has to teach us how to "play
our cards close to the vest."
David recognized this inclina-


tion when he wrote in his person-
al diary what we today refer to as
Psalms 119:11.
There he wrote, "Thy word
have I hidden in my heart that I
might not sin against Thee." This
is a great challenge to us for sev-
eral reasons.
First, it calls people to take ac-
tion. Your teacher, accountability
group, coach, spouse, deacon,
pastor no one can do that for
you. It is a personal effort.
We can hide lots of things in
our heart talks, opinions, ideas,
fantasies, lewd songs, trashy
jokes... the list is endless.
Here, however, the call is clear
- tuck God's word in your heart!
Second, notice where the
words of the Bible are to be hid -
in the heart.
Obviously, this refers to that
place in our soul where we are
what we are when no one is look-
ing.
So, wha'cha got hidden in
there? Good thoughts? Genuine
concern for others?

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
My friend Ron Costa gave me
a new hint book to read. Thank
the Lord for friends. On second
thought maybe he just thinks I re-
ally need a lot of help.
Everything seems to come in
a disposable container lately. Is
it any wonder our landfills are...
filled?
Before you toss them in the
trash, take a good look at them
and see if they will serve as clutter
busters.
Can you use them in your junk
drawer? Will they hold crayons,
puzzle pieces, sewing or craft
supplies, beads or small toys?
When you get your ice cream
home from the store it's usually
the right consistency to scoop.
Go ahead and make, if you have
freezer space, several single serv-
ings in your small, clean, saved
containers. Put back in the freez-


tion dinner last night. I am always
amazed at what that organization
gives back to our community. All
who shop in the store are also giv-
ing back.
Without the money that the
store takes in we would not be
able to do all we do.
The outgoing president Nikki
Yeager Roser, who did the plant-
ings in front of the store, was
given a huge bunch of gardening
stuff to insure that she will always
be the chief gardener. How subtle
was that?
Thought fer the day: This
comes from Karan Roach...Gar-
den Rule: When weeding, the
best way to make sure you are
removing a weed and not a valu-
able plant is to pull on it. If it
comes out of the ground easily, it


I attended the Kiwanis installa- is a valuable plant.

'I


In the investment world, these
are no ordinary times. Consider
the following:
On Sept. 15, The Dow Jones
Industrial Average fell more than
500 points the biggest point
drop since the September 2001
terrorist attacks. Following this
decline, the market was down
about 23 percent from its all-time
high last October.
Facing big losses, two big
names on Wall Street- Merrill
Lynch and Lehman Brothers -
took drastic steps to rescue their
respective businesses, with Mer-
rill Lynch selling itself to Bank of
America and Lehman Brothers
filing for bankruptcy protection.
The U.S. government has
bailed out investment bank Bear
Stearns, mortgage finance giants
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and
American International Group
(AIG).
What's behind this slew of
bad news? Several factors are
involved, but a key culprit is the
subprime mortgage crisis, which


resulted in enormous losses suf-
fered by financial institutions.
Of course, we've seen large
market declines before, but
what's happened to these major
players in the investment world
is something new for most of us.
And yet, you shouldn't confuse
the problems of certain financial
services providers with the vi-
ability of our financial markets as
a whole. We still have the most
powerful and resilient economy
in recorded history, and invest-
ment opportunities still abound.
Nonetheless, as an individual
investor, you'll find it hard to ig-
nore the recent market turmoil.
How should you respond to this
level of volatility?
Basically, you have these
weapons at your disposal:
Patience It's usually not
a good idea to let short-term
market movements dictate your
long-term investment strategy. If
the current market decline led
you to take a "time out" from
investing, you might feel better

for a few weeks or months, but
you wouldn't be helping yourself
achieve your long term finan-
cial objectives. In the past, the
market has fallen sharply after a
variety of events wars, assassi-
nations, terrorist attacks, natural
disasters, corporate scandals and
so on only to regain its footing
and move on to new highs. And
since the biggest gains can occur
in the early stages of a market
turnaround, you could miss out
on the possibility for consider-
able growth if you're sitting on
the investment sidelines.
-Diversification If a mar-
ket downturn primarily affects
just one type of asset, such as
domestic stocks, and your port-
folio is dominated by that asset,
you could take a big hit. But if
you broaden your holdings to
include international stocks,
bonds, Treasury securities, cer-
tificates of deposit (CDs) and
other investments, you can po-
tentially reduce the effects of
market volatility. (K~eep in mind


that diversification, by itself, can-
not guarantee a profit or protect
against a loss.)
-Quality During market
downturns, even quality stocks
can lose value. But these same
stocks have the potential to re-
cover when the market turns
around. Look for good, solid
companies whose products are
competitive and whose manage-
ment has enunciated a strategy
for future growth.
The last few months have
been difficult ones for inves-
tors, and we may still have some
rough roads ahead. But by show-
ing patience, diversifying your.
holdings and buying quality in- +
vestments, you can continue to
make progress toward your long-
term goals in markets that are
good, bad or indifferent.

First Baptist building for the future
On Sunday, September 14, 2008 approximately 100 people attended a ground breaking ceremony at the First Baptist Church of LaBelle. In the planning stages for the last three years, the
church is about to begin construction of a 8,800 square foot education building to replace the existing old motel-style facility built in 1955. The project is expected to cost $1.95 million. In
this photo on the left, some of the children of the First Baptist Church show their enthusiasm for their new education space by picking up shovels and helping to get things started. The
building will house a nursery, preschool rooms, children's classrooms and young adult rooms. Right: Pastor Frank Deerey, Jr., Deacons, Trustees, members of the First Baptist Church
and representatives from Cogun Construction Inc. were also in attendance.


Local church promotes Ave Maria breaks ground on fifth dorm


teen group booklet


AVE MARIA, Fla. (Septem-
ber 16, 2008) A new 'mega-
dorm' will soon emerge from the
ground at Ave Maria University
(AMU). The school is set to hold
a ceremonial ground breaking for
its fifth dormitory at noon today,
commencing construction on
what will be AMU's largest stu-
dent dormitory to date, housing
552 students.
The dorm will also have space
for two residence directors and
four priests.
Construction is expected to
last through July of next year, and
the building should be move-in
ready for students prior to classes
beginning in August 2009.
AMU Chancellor, Thomas S.
Monaghan, cites the construction
of this dorm as both a milestone
and necessity for the university's
inntini dorn th


each year over the last five years,
and this dorm will allow us the
necessary rooms to keep up
with our ongoing enrollment de-
mands," Monaghan said.
"The new 'mega-dorm' will
allow us to continue to recruit
and accept new students without
constantly having to worry about
whether or not we are going to
have room for them and it also
enables us to keep the men's and
women's dorms separate. We
have a lot of great facilities avail-
able on campus, but we knew we
had to be sure there was ample
dorm capacity, thus the decision
to go with a larger or Megaa'
dorm," Monaghan added
Each wing of the dorm will
have two-bedroom units, con-
nected by a bathroom facility
between them. Rooms will be
Cnuinnprd with wireless internet


service, high-efficiency plumbing
and lighting and state of the art
heating and cooling.
Amenities in the dorm will
include a large meeting space,
laundry facilities, computer labs,
meeting rooms, sitting areas and
elevators. A chapel for the resi-
dents is also planned to be locat-
ed on the top floor in the center of
the building.
Anticipating future growth of
the university, the ground floor
will remain open at its center to
allow passage of the east-west
walkway through the building.
Upper levels will feature open-air
breezeways at the center above
the walkway, which will not only
emphasize a sense of connection
and transparency through the
building, but also create a point
of visual relief and a casual gath-


ering area for residents.
The building is being con-
structed by Haskell, one of the
country's leading integrated de-
sign-build firms practicing in the
general building and civil infra-
structure markets. The building's
exterior design is consistent with
the entire campus, done in the
Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie House
style, characteristics include long
horizontal lines, copper roofs and
wide overhangs.

A group of people got together
at LaBelle Assembly of God so
they could express their apprecia-
tion for participating in the publi-
cation and distribution of LaBelle
Assembly of God's youth groups
anti-drug booklet titled The Par-
ents and Students Guide "Drug
Proofing Our Youth." The teen-
agers of the church recognizing
the dangers of drug addiction re-
searched articles for this booklet
and then asked the community
business people and individu-
als to sponsor the booklet. Don
Davis of Don's stakehouse and
Big V Restaurant, Katie Bryce of
Avon, Julie Wilkins representing
Heartland Building and LaBelle
Planning are just a few of the
sponsors that were able to show
up to meet those that created and
those that will be distributing the
booklet like: Mayra Eglely inspec-
tor Sheriff office, Hendry County
Sheriff Ronnie Lee.
The booklet is free to the
public and can be picked up at a
greater LaBelle Chamber of Com-
merce, Baron library and many
local doctors offices.
Sunday evening at LaBelle
Assembly of God the teenagers
meet together to design com-
munity help projects, so far they
have created this anti-drug book-
let, had a yard sale to sponsor the
arts and are presently working on
a movie dealing with elementary
and middle school peer pressure:
anger, drinking, smoking, honesty,
pornography, each of these topic
and more will be videotaped us-
ing drama music puppetry to por-
tray how every day young people


can overcome these obstacles or
learn to deal with them. Naturally
all teens are well to attend and
share their talents.
Right now the youth of the
church are negotiating with the
Disabled Veterans Post 130 com-
mander Steve Williams concern-
ing the publication of a Spanish
edition of his anti-drug book. The
idea for the Spanish edition is the
brainchild of commander Steve
Williams. The teens are more
than a little excited about the
prospect of having this booklet in
Spanish as well as English.
If you would like a copy of
this booklet you can call 863-675-
0900.

CLEWISTON CITY CHARTER REFERENDUM
The Clewiston City Charter was enacted by Special Laws of
Florida in 1925 and was last amended in 1947. The Charter is
outdated and/or superseded by the General Laws of Florida.
The Commission has concluded the adoption of a new Charter
is in the best interests of the citizens of Clewiston.
Shall the City Commission repeal the existing Charter dated
1947 and enact a new City Charter for the City of Clewiston?
Ciudad de Clewiston Referendum Carta Constitucional
La Carta Constitucional de la Ciudad de Clewiston fue promul-
gada por leyes especiales del Estado de la Florida en 1925 y
modificada por ultima vez en 1947. Dicha Carta ha quedado
obsoleta y es sustituida en muchos casos por leyes generals
del Estado de La Florida. La Comision ha concluido que crear y
aprobar una nueva Carta Constitutiva es en el mejor interest de
los residents de la Ciudad de Clewiston.
Consider usted que la Comision de La Ciudad debe revocar la
actual Carta Constitutiva enmendada en 1947 y promulgar una
nueva carta constitutiva ?

TALLAHASSEE Volunteer
counselors with the Florida De-
partlment of Elder Affairs' SHINE
Program are now available to
help guide more than 16,400
Florida Medicare beneficiaries in
23 counties who were impacted
by yesterday's termination of the
federal government's Medicare
Advantage contract with MD
Medicare Choice. The federal
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid
Services terminated the contract
after the state Office of Insurance
Regulation obtained a court order
placing the plan into receiver-
ship.
Following the contract termi-
nation, the affected Medicare ben-
eficiaries were enrolled in a Hu-
mana plan offering similar health
care and prescription drug bene-
fits. However, affected Floridians
have until January 31, 2009, to
choose alternate coverage if they
wish. SHINE counselors are avail-
able to provide objective informa-
tion to help affected beneficiaries
make that decision.

them so much. But my fe-
male dog is Increasing
growing jealous and getting
violent with them. I'm
afraid to leave them alone
and always have to separ-
ate them. They are both
very rare colors. One is 9
months the other is 6
months. I'm only asking for
what I paid for them. They
must slay together! New
owner MUST agree to vet
check and reference check.
I will keep them as long as
it takes to find someone
who will keep them inside
as they are accustomed
and love them dearly. They
adore children and cannot
live without cuddles and
hugs. Super affectionate
and gentle. They have to
be fixed as I will not sell
them to a breeder! $400.

Water releases continue from Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District will continue
with pulsed water releases from
Lake Okeechobee to the Caloo-
sahatchee River and the St. Lucie
Canal beginning Tuesday, Sep-
tember 30. The planned release
is necessary to slow the expected
rise in the lake levels with project-
ed rainfall in the near future and
two months left in the hurricane
season. I
A release to the St. Lucie Ca-
nal and Caloosahatchee River will


be for a period of 1 2 days. The
goal is to achieve an average flow
over the 1 2-day period not to ex-
ceed 2,200 cubic feet per second
(cfs) and 1,000 cfs to the Caloosa-
hatchee and St. Lucie Estuary, re-
spectively. The target flows to the
Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Es-
tuary will be measured at the W.P.
Franklin Lock and Dam and the
St. Lucie Lock and Dam. If there is
rainfall in the Caloosahatchee Ba-
sin and the measured flow in the
river at the lock and dam equals
or exceeds the amount of the


scheduled release, then no water
will be released from the lake.
Today, the lake level is 14.95
feetNGVD and is at the upper end
of the preferred operational level
of 1 2.5 to 1 5.5 feet. The lake has
been hovering at the 1 5 foot level
since the beginning of the first
of two pulsed releases on Sept,
4, On Sept, 4 the lake level was
14.68 feet. It is expected that with
the near term forecast, the lake
will rise and the upcoming releas-
es will slow the amount of rise.
Pulse releases are designed


to mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estu-
aries via the St. Lucie Canal to the
east and the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er to the west. The goal is to strike
a balance between the health of
the lake's littoral zone and the
health of the estuaries.
Water level data and flows for
Lake Okeechobee and the Cen-
tral and Southern Florida Project

Edison's Video Productions wins at 29th Telly Award


FORT MYERS-Edison State
College and Main Sail Video Pro-
ductions, Inc. captured a bronze
statuette for outstanding achieve-
ment in the 29th Telly Awards
competition for the College's
"Genius" television campaign.
The award was announced at the
recent Edison State College Board
of Trustees meeting.
The four commercials feature
a ghostly image of Thomas Edi-
son visiting each of the College's
campuses, observing students
and surroundings with pleasure
and amazement. Each 30-second


segment ends with Mr. Edison
taking a hand at today's technol-
ogy--rocking to a tune on an iPod,
pointing an iPhone web browser
to the College website, taking
notes in class using a laptop, and
inserting a heart catheter into a
mannequin in the cardiovascular
lab. The final voiceover says "At
Edison State College, we believe
there's a little bit of genius in ev-
erybody."
"We are proud of the Thorm-
as Alva Edison connection and
legacy," said Kenneth Walker,
Edison State College President.


"This campaign builds on the val-
ues and characteristics shared by
the man and the college-hard
work, determination, innovation,
and belief in one person's ability
to impact the world in a positive
way."
Telly is the premier award hon-
oring outstanding local, regional,
and cable TV commercials and
programs, and video and film
productions.
Judges are top advertising and
production professionals, and
past Telly Winners. There are over
14,000 entries each year.


Edison State College is accred-
ited by the Commission on Col-
leges of the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools to award
baccalaureate degrees, associ-
ate degrees and certificates. Over
17,000 credit seeking students are
served annually through full ser-
vice campuses in Punta Gorda,
Fort Myers, and Naples, outreach
centers in LaBelle and Clewiston
and through Edison Online. Ad-
ditional information may be ob-
tained through the college web-
site, www.edison.edu.


Mold: Unwelcome parting gift from Tropical Storm Fay


GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- You can't
tell a storm's spit by its punch, the
old maxim goes. Florida is used
to stronger weather systems thao
August's tropical storm Fay, but
its seven-day deluge made it the
fourth wettest storm to ever hit
the state.
One month later, most of
the flooding has receded, but
an expert from the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences warns that
new problems could be rising in
the form of toxic molds and mil-
dews.
"Moisture is the No. 1 thing
that molds need to grow, and this
storm certainly gave us plenty of
that," said James Kimbrough, a
mycologist in UF's department of
plant pathology.
Tropical storm Fay dropped as
much as 26 inches on some parts
of the state, the most rain deliv-
ered to the state in a single blow
in nearly a decade, according to
Dennis Decker of the National
Weather Service office in Mel-
bourne, Fla.


"Your house may not get
washed away," Kimbrough said.
"But moisture could sneak into
place you-'fft see. or don't typi-
cally look. Those are the places
most mold and mildew is best at
growing."
A well-known mold and mil-
dew expert, Kimbrough receives
daily requests to identify molds
and mildews associated with
the recent rains. Sometimes the
moisture damage is obvious,
such as one recent case where
mushrooms were growing out of
a living room floor.
However, black mold often
grows prolifically on the inside of
walls before it becomes visible.
Loose drywall tape, light wall
stains or even the appearance of
unusual amounts of dust on duct
vents could be the earliest signs of
a massive spread of mold.
Black mold can result in what
physicians have dubbed "sick
building syndrome." It includes
syrrptoms such as scratchy
throats, watery eyes, rashes and
breathing problems. It can even


result in chronic fatigue, pneu-
monia and symptoms resembling
irritable bowel syndrome. ,
"Of co:t e-- the. b,:is tactic is
not to get sick before you notice
the problem," Kimbrough said.
Warped wood, black growth on
bathroom tiles, cracked or peel-
ing paint, a roof leak or constant
condensation on pipes, windows
or walls are all warning signs.
Air conditioning units can
make problems worse. If controls
are malfunctioning or poorly set,
they can rapidly cool surfaces in
the home, which then form con-
densation that promotes mold
growth.
Kimbrough also suggests us-
ing high-quality air conditioning
filters and changing them regu-
larly.
"This keeps the mold spores
from circulating around the build-
ing," he said. "They don't get a
chance to spread around and
grow other places-and they
don't get a chance to land in your
lungs."
Excessive buildup on air-condi-


tioning filters is also a prime sign
that mold problems may be in the
works. Vinyl wallpaper and floor
coverings should also be watched
closely for signs of mold.
"Mold is something that hu-
mans live with, especially in Flor-
ida," Kimbrough said. "And so it's
fine to expect a little mold and
mildew here and there that can
be cleaned away. But big growths
can cause big problems.
"It's like dealing with cock-
roaches. Just spraying one that
you happen to see is fine, but it
could mean that there are hun-
dreds you don't see."
Floridians who suspect they
have a systemic mold or mildew
problem should contact their lo-
cal extension agent. Contact in-
formation can be found at http://

Out of sight, out of mind if
you're like most men, that pretty
much sums up your relationship
with your prostate. Ignoring your
prostate isn't a good idea, espe-
cially if you're 50 or older. This
small gland can cause big prob-
lems in men as they get older -
most notably, cancer.
Other than skin cancer, pros-
tate cancer is the most common
type of cancer found in American
men. In fact, one out of every six
men will develop prostate cancer
during his lifetime, reports the
American Cancer Society (ACS).
That's why you need to learn
about prostate cancer and why
you need to pay attention to your
prostate.
Risk Factors It's not known
what exactly causes prostate
cancer, but there are certain risk
factors that can increase your
chances of getting the disease.
The greatest risk factor associated
with prostate cancer is age. Your
chance of getting the disease in-
creases quickly after your reach
the age of 50 about two out
of every three cases of prostate
cancer are found in men over 65,
according to the ACS. You rhay
also be more likely to get prostate
cancer if you have a family history
of the disease, if you're African
American, or if you have a diet
high in red met or high-fat dairy
products. There is nothing you
can do about some risk factors
such as family history and race,
but you can help protect yourself
from other risks by practicing a


healthy lifestyle.
Screenings The ACS recom-
mends that you talk to your doc-
tor about the benefits and risks
of prostate cancer screening
when you reach the age of 50.
If you have high risk factors for
the disease, you should discuss
testing at age 45. If you decide to
be screened for prostate cancer,
there are two tests your doctor
may recommend:
1). a digital rectal exam (DRE)
in which a doctor inserts a gloved
finger into your rectum to check
the prostate for hard or lumpy ar-
eas and
2). a prostate-specific antigen
(PSA) test, in which a sample of
your blood is checked to deter-
mine your PSA level. DRE and PSA
tests can both detect problems
with your prostate. Neither test,
however, can determine whether
an abnormality is cancer. You
may have to undergo a biopsy to
rule out cancer.
Symptoms Prostate cancer
doesn't always cause symptoms.
When it does, they may include:
difficulty urinating or having the
need to urinate often (especially
at night), difficulty having an erec-
tion, blood in your urine or semen
or frequent pain in your lower
back, hips or upper thighs.
To find out more about your
prostate, visit one of the doctors
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter. You can also go to the hospital
website to locate a physician by
accessing www.hendryregional.

This Sheriff's campaign is about one thing, QUALIFICATIONS. Who is
and who is not QUALIFIED to be your Sheriff and lead the Sheriff's Office
during what is the most challenging economic times in decades while con-
tinuing to protect the citizens of Hendry County.

I am proud to have served over 37 years in Florida Law Enforcement. This
service has been at all levels including Chief of Police and almost 8 years as
your Sheriff. I prepared myself for a career in law enforcement by earning
a 4 year Bachelors Degree in Criminology from Florida State University.

My opponent, a former police officer has 8 Years & 10 months experience
in Florida Law Enforcement. Of critical importance he has NO experience
in law enforcement supervision, management, administrative or budgetary
processes. Each of these principles are vital to the successful operation of the
Sheriff's Office.

Hendry County needs the PROVEN law enforcement and administrative
abilities of Sheriff Ronnie Lee.

Your vote for Ronnie Lee is critical for the safety and security of you and all
citizens of Hendry County, as well as for sound business management of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office.

School Board presented him with a plaque in recognition of
his dedication. The occasion was attended by an entourage
of Charlie's former employees who came to wish him well.
Board member Dwayne Brown told the employees that Char-
lie "always fought for you 100 percent." Charlie himself told
them that he appreciates their hard work and that his time
with them "has been special to me. I have a lot of good mem-
ories." Charlie is pictured with board member Sally Berg as
she presented him with his plaque.

Goodwill gets "Greener" with


new reus

Southwest Florida- According
to the Environmental Protection
Agency, over 380 million plastic
bags are used in the United States
every year. Goodwill Industries of
Southwest Florida (www.good-
willswfl.org) locations are now
doing their part to reduce landfill
waste and pollution.
Starting October 1, 2008, all
23 Goodwill Retail and Donation
centers in Lee, Charlotte, Collier,
Hendry and Glades counties will
sell reusable shopping bags for
$0.97-and shoppers will get a
bonus when bringing their bags
back to the store on subsequent
shopping trips.
In order to encourage custom-
ers to reuse their bags, Goodwill
is offering an additional 5 percent
discount to customers who reuse
their bags on a Goodwill shop-
ping trip before January 1, 2009.
S The 5 percent discount will
apply to a customer's entire
purchase, and can be used with
other discounts and sale pur-
chases.
Goodwill's reusable bags
measure 13"x8"x13" and carry
the equivalent of three to four
average-size grocery bags. In ad-
dition, the eco-friendly shopping
bags are made of strong and
durable polypropylene, which
is non-toxic, non-corrosive, and
non-allergenic.
By selling reusable shopping
bags, Goodwill hopes to keep
even less material out of land-
fills-and even put a dent in our
demand for oil. Traditional plastic
shopping bags are made of eth-
