Haunted house this
weekend
The City of LaBelle Relay for
Life Team is holding a haunted
house on Friday, Oct 24, and
Saturday, October 25 from 7-10
p.m. and Sunday, October 26,
from 7-9 p.m. at the LaBelle
Civic Center (just behind City
Hall).
There is a $5 donation with
all proceeds going to the Amer-
ican Cancer Society.

Come to Kiwanis
Halloween
Bring all your ghouls and
goblins to the first ever Hallow-
een "Trunk or Treat" on Octo-
ber 31 at 6 p.m. in the parking
lot of the Kiwanis Thrift Store.
"Trunk or Treat" is a modified
version of the real thing. Sev-
eral of the local churches have
been having them the past few
years.
It is a safe way for children
to trick or treat for candy and
not worry about the typical
dangers associated with this
event.
Kiwanis is asking all Kiwan-
ians and citizens of LaBelle to
join them on Friday, October
31, at the Kiwanis Thrift Store
parking lot. Everyone is asked
to bring their vehicle around
5:15 p.m. and park trunks fac-
ing out and decorated to your
liking.
Then when the children ar-
rive they will go from "trunk to
trunk" instead of door to door.
Every trunk will have candy;
some may even have games
and prizes.
Again the event will begin
around 6 p.m. and last ap-
proximately an hour. This will
be a lot of fun and a great op-
portunity to interact with the
children in our community.

VFW Halloween fun
VFW 10100 is having a Hal-
loween Party for kis Oct. 31
with hot dogs and coke, apple
bobbin', trail walk and more
fun for kids up to seven years
old.
Kids must have partners
for the hayride! Time:5-7 p.m.
Come to post home on SR 29S
next to the rodeo grounds.
Halloween carnival
cancelled
This year's LES HALLOW-
EEN CARNIVAL that was
scheduled for October 25, 2008
has been cancelled this year.
We realize many children
look forward to this event,
however we are not able to
provide the carnival this year.

The community came to-

of its treasured members at the
annual Greater LaBelle Cham-

were honored: Steve Williams

Steve makes the most of his big
heart and big talents.
"What makes him deserving
of consideration for the Man of

he went beyond the mandate
of the (DAV) slogan (Veterans

Sub-office




still on hold


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The ongoing controversy
over what to do with the old
Clewiston Sub-Office on E. El
Paso just won't go away. At
their Oct. 14 meeting in Pioneer
Plantation, the commission de-
.,cided to keep it on hold for a
few weeks longer.
Previously the board had de-
cided, at different times, to raze
the building, renovate it or pass
it on to the Hendry County Fair
Board. The fair board recently
said it Would pay for demoli-
tion.
However, Commissioner
Darrell Harris said it was a "bad
time" for the county to give
away land and wanted to table
the donation till January after
the new commission board has
been seated.
LaBelle resident Earnie
Redish has put forth an offer
to purchase the building for
$100,000 and allow the county
to use the building for a period
of three years rent free. He cal-
culated the savings to the coun-
ty, which is currently renting
space at the old K-Mart center
in Clewiston, at $503,000. After
three years, the rent would be'
to the county's satisfaction if it
wanted to continue to occupy
the building.
LaBelle contractor Wayne
Wilkins stepped up With a pro-


posal to renovate the building
for $140,000.
Commissioner Kevin Mc-
Carthy agreed that, if it can be
brought up to code for that kind
of money he would agree with
it. According to the law, renova-
tions cannot be done on a struc-
ture if the destruction exceeds
50 percent of the building. He
is looking for more information
for a December commission
meeting and is seeking a guar-
anteed maximum contract.
Commissioner-elect Kar-
son lTrner from District 5 also
disagreed with the giveaway
saying it is "not prudent at this
time."

OHV
A proposed Off Highway
Vehicle Park in Pioneer Planta-
tion has roused a firestorm of
controversy, with Pioneer resi-
dents banding together against
the proposal. A large group
attended the Oct. 14 meeting,
thinking the subject would be
brought up. However, discus-
sion was pushed back to an
Oct. 24 public meeting in Pio-
neer. The meeting will begin at
6:30 p.m. at the Pioneer Civic
Center.
Commissioner Harris told
the group that any such park
is two-three years away and

A spokesperson for the Pio-

Commissioner McCarthy said
the park is a concept intended

hasano tbe able to begin construc-

The board approved returning
two of the impact fees, denying

ment of impact fees for a period
of one year. Commissioner Bo

The board approved changing

Two Boynton Beach women
lost their lives on a Hendy Coun-
ty roadway last week.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, 30-year-old Jan-
thina Vanessa Tommie and 19-
year-old Bobbie Copeland were
the victims of the mishap.
Ms. Tommie was driving a
2007 Toyota northbound on SR
833 approximately 3.5 miles
north of Pine Cone Lane at 7:39
p.m. on Saturday, October 18,
when, for unknown reasons the


vehicle traveled onto the east
grass shoulder.
Ms. Tommie overcorrected
and re-entered the northbound
lane. She continued northwest
across the southbound lane,
onto the west grass shoulder to-
ward a canal.
The vehicle entered the canal
and overturned onto its roof,
coming to a final stop acing east
and on its roof. Both women
were .submerged. Neither was
wearing a seatbelt.

Agriculture appraiser explains the process


Karen Robinson recently cel-
ebrated ten years with the Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser.
The 1983 graduate of Clewiston
High School started working just
two days a week at the Clewiston
office in July 1997. In 15 months
she transferred the LaBelle office
and was working full time. She
hoped to acquire more experi-
ence and become an appraiser
with a special interest in the agri-
culture department.
She became a Certified Florida
Evaluator in January 2006 and is
eager to explain her complicated
job. Every year, all lands in the
county are assessed as either ag-
ricultural or non-agricultural.
Hendry County encompasses
some 535,000 acres in agricul-
ture. Karen visits as many as pos-
sible each year, looking for signs
that could change the valuation of
the property: new or demolished
buildings, abandoned grove -
anything different from the previ-
ous year. She also flies over the
county to check out more inac-
cessible parcels.
In Florida, land is classified as
ag and valued for tax purposes
according to their use, -which
must be commercial in nature.
That is, the purpose of the:opera-
tion must clearly be to produce
a financial profit. The operation
must be of adequate size to con-
stitute, beyond a doubt, the char-
acteristics of a profit-making ven-
ture. Leased land, which meets
the same criteria, may be classi-
fied.agricultural. Agricultural Clas-
sifications are NOT transferable.
New owners of agricultural lands
must reapply in order to receive
an agricultural classification.
All properties are assessed an-
nually as of January 1. In order to
file for an ag classification your
venture must be up and running
as of this time or a "good faith"
effort made. Starting for the 2009
Tax year the Property Appraiser
can pre-file your application, with
the deadline remaining as March
I to ensure your operation is a
"bona fide agricultural purpose."
An agriculture classification is
based oi the type of use, NOT the
sale of the land. For example a 10-


Steve Whidden
2100 Scott Road
LaBelle, Florida 33935


acre parcel classified as improved
pasture in the south end of the
county and 10-acre improved
pasture on the river are assessed
at the same value.
Ag land is assessed using the
income approach. That is, in-
come and expense information
is gathered through surveys sent
and from other sources. Assess-
ments are made on a five-year av-
erage of all components. (There
are three approaches to valua-
tion: cost, comparison of scale,
and income.)
The changes in the economy


have made agriculture classifi-
cation more of a benefit to the
taxpayer. Karen said there are
many misconceptions of agricul-
ture classification. One inquiry
is "my neighbor has agriculture
classification but he doesn't have
any cows." Her answer is: if cows
were on this property any time
during the year it is still qualified.
Hendry County Property Ap-
praiser Kristina A. Kulpa, said,,
"Karen is an exceptional em-
ployee, who is dedicated to this
office and her position as our
Agricultural Appraiser. She has a

Devon Land, Chief Deputy
Hendry County Office of Sheriff
October 9th, 2008


Dear Mr. Whidden,

In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by, you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has cometo
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisehients strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you to discontinue the use of this letter.

Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your City of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter from any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.

A OPINION Caloosa Belle, Thursday, October 23, 2008


Speak Out
Have a comment, opinion or question about a public issue?
Post it anytime at the LaBelle public forum at newszap.com.
It is a hometown site, so visit the page as often as you would
like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by sending an
e-mail to cbnews@newszap.com. Comments will be published
in the newspaper as space permits.

HCSO QUESTIONS: We will not see any solutions in the HCSO
budget unless we take steps immediately. Driving through LeHigh
Acres recently I saw a patrol car from HCSO parked at a home. How
many other officers take their patrol cars from HCSO to other outly-
ing counties? Who is keeping track of them? What is the cost to the
taxpayers in fuel, maintenance and insurance? Other counties charge
their officers a certain amount for them to take their vehicles home.
Also, the HCSO continues to hire confidential informants for their
drug busts. At what cost and risk?

NOT A LOCAL MEMBER: Received a flyer from Kristina Kulpa
stating she is a member of the American Business Women's Associa-
tion. She is not an active member of the local chapter so I assume she
is a national member. She needs to clarify where her membership is.
She does not attend meetings or help with fund raising projects that
the local chapter does.


Faith in the Marketplace


By Fr. Alan Kelmereit
Church of the Good Shepherd
We live in a time when many
people assert that faith, any faith,
has no place in the public arena.
They would ban any public display
that is related to a particular faith.
There is constant pressure to force
prayer out of our educational sys-
tem and all other public venues.
Yet the great majority of Ameri-
cans assert that they are people
of faith. What's happening? Are
they right that
faith should
be limited to l
people's pri-
vate times and
private places?
Or is there a
rightful place
in the public
sector and in Fr. Alan
our communi- Kelmereit
ties?
I'm Alan Kelmereit, pastor of
Church of the Good Shepherd in
Port LaBelle, one block south of Rt.
80 on Collingswood'Pkwy. I believe
that faith does have an important
place in public life, and so what
I write here will not be unbiased.
If you agree or disagree with any-
thing I say, or if you'd like to see me
address a particular issue, please
email me at FaithMarketplace@
embarqmail.com. I'll try to answer
as many emails as I can (no guar-
antees) and address some of the
most interesting in this column.
Faith & the Ballot Box
-- It almost seems we've been
listening to and watching election
campaign speeches and read-
ing campaign mail forever. We've
heard all sorts of claims and prom-
ises, most of which have the staying
power of New Year's resolutions.
One notable feature of this cam-
paign is that it has become proper,
if not essential, for the candidates
to talk about their faith. It seems
they've discovered that people of
faith vote. At the same time, there
have been questions and criticisms
about the practice of appealing to
people using faith as a common
ground. How often have you heard
people say that there should be no
connection between the faith of
public leaders and the decisions
they make. Unless memory fails
me, just ten years ago, during an
impeachment trial, many people
proclaimed that a political leader's
character and morality were unim-
portant as long as they got the job
done.
The greatest problem with the
idea of keeping faith out of the
public arena is that it is impossible.
We need to do some defining and
explanation here. Faith is usually


used to describe adherence to a
particular set of religious beliefs.
It is used of the adherence of all
religions. The correct definition of
faith, however, it is that it is adher-
ence to a particular set of ideas,
religious or otherwise. So, what
other faiths are there? Many peo-
ple regard themselves as atheists,
people who believe that there is
no God. Many others describe.
themselves as agnostics, people
who are not certain if there is a
God. Still more place absolute
confidence in science, with all its
theories and assumptions as well
as facts. In short, I contend that
every person'has a faith of'some
sort, something they believe in for
reasons of their own.
Next, we need to recognize that
we all have world view, the we see
and interpret what goes on around
us in the world. It may be a very
intentional, carefully thought out
world view, or it may be complete-
ly unintentional, bits and pieces of
belief absorbed here and there. For
example, I heard a radio commen-
tator the other day making the case
that organized religion is the cause
of all conflict in the world. It was a
really bad case, but clearly his hos-
tility to organized religion, his faith,
his religious world view, influenced
him to see only evil in the practice
of religion. Our world views are
largely formed by our faith, be it re-
ligious or not. Consequently then,
that faith influences all of the deci-
sions we make. It doesn't matter
whether it's a president deciding to
go to war, a CEO deciding to pro-
vide for himself without regard to
employees, or a soldier sacrificing
his or her life to save the lives of
comrades. All of these actions arise
from the individual's faith,,that set
of ideas and beliefs, positive or
negative, that forms the basis of re-
sponse to events and people in our
immediate world.
All this being so, which I believe
it is, it is especially important for
us now, as we prepare to vote, to
pay very close attention to the faith
of the people we elect. We need
to pay attention to their character
and morality. These are the only
reliable guides we have to how
these people will perform in office.
Yes, we have promises and policy
statements. What we don't have
is anyway of knowing what cir-
cumstances will be a few months
from now, much less two or three
years from now. It is only through
what we discern of the candidates'
faith and character that will help us
judge how they will respond to un-
foreseen issues, and whether their
responses will be for the good of
this nation.

Letters to the Editor


Chapman supporter
I'm supporting Tris Chapman
for county commission because
we need someone who has a
fresh but experienced voice.
Tris earned my respect when
I learned that he worked his way
through college while raising a
young family and then worked
his way up the ladder in the citrus
business; starting out sweeping
floors. I respect that he earned
a place on the Florida Citrus
Commission and was appointed
by Gov. Jeb Bush not once but
twice!
Tris has been very active in
our community in LaBelle and
throughout Hendry County. He is
a citrus industry veteran, has just
been elected by his peers as Presi-
dent of the Florida Citius Proces-
sor's Association; he volunteers
for Hendry County United Way,
Relay for Life, LHS Quarterback
Club, and he helps children attend
summer camps and recreational
opportunities through generous
contributions to local organiza-
tions. The people who know Tris
best continue to trust him and his
leadership regardless whether it is
in the citrus business, local phil-
anthropic activities or just people
who need a helping hand.
Tris' conservative leadership
will help keep taxes low and cre-
ate jobs for Hendry County resi-
dents.
We are at a crossroad in Hen-
dry County and we need some-
one who has the leadership and
respect of local, state and national
figures to help with the transition
we face. We need Tris Chapman


on the county commission.

Appreciates sheriff
THANK YOU, Sheriff Ronnie
Lee and staff for your hard work
and help after the storm we had
in August that left Fort Denaud
Acres, flooded. That rainy Friday
afternoon we were in our yards
and wading in waters that just
kept coming. You and many other
deputies and assistants were go-
ing house to house asking who
needed sand bags or any other
help. You( assistants brought
Sthe sand bags and placed them
where they were needed. You
and your staff were a blessing
that afternoon and it has not been
forgotten'. We also told you of a
residence that had water coming
in and you immediately radioed
another deputy to let them know
the address of that family in need.
When you were leaving you told
us that the weather wasn't look-
ing good for the evening and if we
felt we needed more sand bags
or anything else to call for assis-
tance. We were fortunate that the
rains did let up later that evening.
We just wanted you to know
how much you are appreciated
each and every day for your dedi-
cation to the residents of Hendry
County and to let the public know
also.

No Palin fan
Can you imagine a "hockey"
mom (or dad) as being an acting
President of the United States, or
in a worse case scenario, as be-
ing President of the United States?
This can easily come to pass.
Is someone with experience as
governor of the least populated
state in the union VP material?
Someone whose life experience
is living in an isolated state? A per-
son who even brags about such
things? A person whose proximity
to Siberia was suppose to give her
international political experience?
Is this suppose to be humorous?
Such an occurrence is not far
fetched. On 9-11, President Bush
was in the air on Air Force 1 for
a period of time for safety rea-
sons. Vice President Cheney act-
ed in command at the sheltered
command area under the White
House. Remember when Reagan
was shot and unconscious for a
period of time, thus leaving the
vice president in charge? Presi-
dent Kennedy was shot and killed
while in office, leaving Lyndon B.
Johnson as president. Many other
historical instances abound.
If such a situation were to oc-
cur, this would leave the most
inexperienced vice president
in U.S. history to be in charge,
should McCain become the next
president. And this is considered
by many to be a plus for McCain.
Obama's experience is suppose
to be lacking but compared to
him, she is a rank amateur.
Ms. Palin was on Saturday
Night Live to demonstrate her
sense of humor, not that.she was


very funny. Both McCain and Pa-
lin must have a sense of humor
though if she is considered a bo-
nus to senator McCain as a run-
ning mate for president.'And say-
ing that she is a maverick is about
the same thing as saying she is
different due to her inexperience
and she doesn't know any better.
Having Sarah Palin in charge
of the U.S. during a moment of
crisis, or otherwise, gives me a
chill. How is having been mayor
' of a small town to contribute as
acting president of the U.S.? Be-
sides, her personal experience as
a mother isn't that sterling either.
This scenario is like having a
person who knows how to fly a
cessna and having her pilot a 747.
It would be extremely irrespon-
sible to say the least.
My point is that someone hav-
ing little experience and being
basically naive oj political abil-
ity should not be vice president
of my country, much less act-
ing president 'r president of my
country.
The tone of this letter is very
mild compared to Palin's state-
ments about Obama. Is it sup-
pose to be a plus when she
makes scalding remarks about
Senator Obama? I consider some
of the things she has said about
Obama to be outright slanderous.
Definitely not a good thing for a
vice presidential candidate in my
opinion, very immature.

Pioneer residents argue against OHV park


First, we would like to say that
we are not categorically opposed
to having an ORV Park here in
Hendry County. We congratulate
the county on its ingenuity and
aggressiveness in responding to
the necessity to expand our avail-
able resources for recreation for
the general public. We also ap-
preciate the concept of creative
use of the closed dumpsite. We
applaud the vision for additional
revenue, which could be created
for the county and by extension its
local businesses. But having said
this we do have some very real
concerns. Fortunately, we do also
reside within this residential com-
munity of Pioneer Plantation and
because of this, as a concerned
homeowners and residents, we
feel it behooves us to speak out
and address these concerns. I
am speaking to you today as a
spokesperson for a large number
of the members of our commu-
nity about these concerns. .
Our twelve objections are as
follows:
Issue One: Never, at any
time, were the residents of Pio-
neer consulted as to whether or
not we would appreciate having
this park in the first place. No
public forum was offered, only
one poorly advertised discussion
panel, no community interaction
to apprise the local populace of
the intent of our county govern-
ment to foist-the.park upon us.
The Park itself was a proverbial
"Done Deal" when we read about
it in a local paper and the funding
had already been obtained. To
that point, we wonder why was
it not reported to the Clewiston
News, since our community is a
part of Clewiston and only report-
ed to the Caloosa-Belle, which is
predominantly a LaBelle newspa-
per.
Issue Two: The increase of
crime this venue will bring into
our residential community. We
are investigating the increase of
crime directly related to these
types of parks, which have exist-
ed in other communities in South
Florida. One of our members has
been investigating these issues
and the information gleaned by
a cursory round of phone calls is
frightening. The following crimes
related to these venues were
gathered by phone calls from Mr.
Bosley to various law enforce-
ment departments in the areas
surrounding sites similar to this
proposed park. These charges
include DUI, Assault and Battery,
Theft, Child Molestation, rape and
lesser crimes such as Drunk and
Disorderly. Resisting Arrest and
so on. We intend to supply more
detailed documentation at a later
venue as the paperwork is ob-
tained from the various munici-
palities in question.
Issue Three: The EPA has this
dump referenced on their web-
site as being scheduled for toxic
clean up in the year 2010. There
are obviously issues involved
here including toxic waste clean
up which need to be addressed
before we expose the general
public to such dangers. There
is a restriction on well drilling in
certain areas within the dumpsite
itself due to these toxic issues.
Not to mention the fact that there
are EPA designated wetlands
included within the confines of
this dumpsite, which restricts the
pumping of water in these desig-


nated areas.
Issue Four: There are issues'
of Liability for the community, the
county and the individuals who
will facilitate this venue. Who
will police the activities within
the park and restrict the ATVs etc.
from leaving the facility and using
our gravel roads and empty lots
as extensions of the facility itself,
i.e. fencing and containment?
Who will inspect the equipment
being used for safety and verify
that the equipment allowed to be
used within this area will be prop-
erly maintained? Ill maintained
equipment, out-dated equipment
and poor usage of any equipment
could lead to the igniting of fires
within this community, which is
notoriously drought ridden and
excessively dry even during the
wet seasons. In the year 2007, a
horrendously frightening wildfire
was suspected of being the result
of ATV traffic. It was a very close
call for those of us who live on
Panama Avenue.
Issue Five: The increased
traffic in our keyhole community.
The means of egress to and from
this community have never been
addressed. We have only one road
to travel in and out of our commu-
nity. This in itself is an illegal issue
by State Law in itself. Thfs addi-
tional traffic will not only be cars
and trucks, but also travel trailers,
ATV trailers, Dirt Bikes, ORVs and'
their campers. Our own county
engineer has deemed the main
road, Hendry Isle 'Blvd., "a sub
standard road", and it is our only
method of coming and going for
this entire community. There are
not adequate shoulders, and the
state of the road itself, at present,
prior to construction, is not ade-
quate to support the heavy equip-
ment required to build this park.
A member of the roads dept. for
Hendry County, has informed us
that the demand for maintenance
for this area's ditches and shoul-
ders far exceeds their capabilities
to respond now. Their services
are being rendered in a reactive
manner, rather than in a regulated
or scheduled manner. Then there
is the issue of heavily increased
traffic along the twisting winding
residential road. Should there be
an inevitable accident, we hom-
eowners will be locked in or out
of our own community.
Issue Six: Our Fire Dept. and
EMT facilities are all on a volun-
teer basis. They have informed us
that they do not feel their resourc-
es are adequate to deal with the
increased services that will inevi-
tably be required of them., They
also are very concerned about the
possibility of an accident on Hen-
dry Isles Blvd. creating a blockage
and restricting their performance.
Issue Seven: Additional
MSBU funds will be required to
maintain the gravel roads adjoin-
ing the public access areas of this
park. Since these funds have been
inadequate to provide more than
three sub-standard paved roads,
which even now are in a state of
constant disrepair, for our com-
munity over a period of more
than thirty years, how can we af-
ford this? Currently, we can only
get our gravel roads even quasi-
graded on a limited basis and
then only when we complain too
stringently. The maintenance of
our ditches is laughable, partially
due to the current ATV traffic,
which insists on cutting through


and into land owned, but not
maintained by absentee owners.
and partially due to the uninten-
tional lack of maintenance by our
county due to over extended re-
sources.
Issue Eight: We do not ap-
preciate the damage done to our
roads and shoulders by those
ATVs and ORVs currently being
ridden in my neighborhood. We
are angry that we have to pay,
with our MSBU taxes, for the re-
pairs required on a repetitive ba-
sis. It goes without saying that this
park will aggravate those prob-
lems and exacerbate the necessi-
ty for additional repairs and bring
increased ORV traffic causing the
necessity. Having said this, what
security measures will keep these
people inside of the park? Where
will the overflow vehicles go
when they are refused access?
Issue Nine: Will they be sta-
tioning a sheriff's deputy in Pio-
neer, particularly on weekends, to
control the additional problems
Sposed by this park? We currently
have an influx of "weekend war-
riors" who travel from Miami and
Ft. Lauderdale with trailer loads of
these ORV practically every week-
end and they abuse our roads
now.- They tailgate party and gen-
erally commit any violation of the
law they cannot get away with in
their own home communities.
They seem to feel they are above
the Law, as do most of the absen-
tee owners here. Would it not be
feasible to assume we should an-
ticipate further abuse when this
park opens?
Issue Ten: This community
is rampant with absentee owners
and their lack of maintenance of.
their properties is obvious and ig-
nored. The code violations within
this community are rampant and
none of these issues have been
addressed at any point by this
county government. Is this the
face of Hendry County we want to
represent us to the outside world? I
My understanding of this project is
to stimulate interest and tourism
in this.county. Why then are we,
the residents of Pioneer, to sud-
denly become the poster children
for the county, when we can not
even receive the services we pay
for now, such as adequate code
enforcement, adequate main-
tenance of our roads, adequate
mowing of the sides of the roads,
adequate mosquito spraying, ad-


equate lighting for our children at
bus stops, adequate maintenance
of our drainage ditches and the
list goes on. *
Issue Eleven: How will this
park directly impact our resi-
dential property values? Where
is the research of other residen-
tial communities, which have
been directly impacted by these
types of parks? What has it done
to the property values of other
residential communities, which
have been subjected to one of
these parks? Perhaps, this project
should be relocated to a more ru-
ral area of the county where hom-
eowners are less affected in these
many negative ways.
Issue Twelve: It has been
brought to our attention that there
is a matching amount the county
must come up with for this grant
in the amount of $148,000.00
over a period of three years. We
feel this money would be better
spent by the county on giving
us a Sheriff's'deputy out here to
man the unmanned sub-station
currently housed in our Pioneer
Plantation Fire Department over
the next three years.
We demand resolution of
these issues from our county gov-
ernment. We want to know how
our community will be improved
and hence benefit from this park.
We are citizens, taxpayers, voters
and residents of Hendry County
and as such we have the right to
expect fair treatment by this com-
mission and its subsidiary govern-
mental branches. The final and
most important issue is this:
The citizens and residents of
Pioneer Plantation, as members
of the Pioneer Homeowners As-
sociation, DO NOT.WANT THIS
PUBLIC PARK in our residential
community.
Thank you,
Respectfully Submitted,
Deborah D. Misotti, Ph.D.

A OPINION













Caloosa Belle, Thursday, October 23, 2008 o


Public tours ECSWF site


Since 1999, the Education
Center of Southwest Florida, Inc.,
has been striving to fulfill its goal
to bring quality post-high school
education to this area.
Housed on Missouri St. for a
number of years, in 2002 the cen-
ter was the recipient of land to
build a future facility on SR 29S.
Eventually, ECSWF will be part of
an educational complex located
on the Paul property just south of
Helms Road.
Currently residing in tempo-
rary structures just off SR 29S, the
center partnered with the Greater
LaBelle Chamber of Commerce
Oct. 16 for an after hours card
exchange and social. Attendees
got a quick tour of the temporary
classrooms. The spacious com-
puter room is located in a trailer
along with the administrative of-
fice. It was donated to the school
by Glades County. The Classroom
On Wheels (COW) can accom-
modate classroom training for

Construction de La
Carcel
Un reducido nimero de resi-
dentes atendi6 a la visit de la
carcel el 7 de octubre. La Mayor
Susan English dijo que van a
comenzar con #2.2 millones para
la future expansion que proveera
96 camas. Las 12 celdas modu-
lares de concrete se construiran en
el lado sur de la misma propiedad.
Para tender el total de prisioneros
se necesitarAn dos oficiales mas. La
sefiora Susan dijo que el costo de
cada comida por prisionero es de
$1.59 y el costo de un dia de carcel
es de $39.50 diaries.
El problema mas grande de la
crcel del Condado Hendy es la
sobrepoblaci6n, por ejemplo una
noche hubiero 246 prisioneros
pero la carcel solo tiene capacidad
para 193. English quien es la su-
pervisora de este proyecto piensa
que cuando el proyecto de agran-
dar la carcel se termine seguira la
construcci6n de otro sal6n para
los juicios y la contrataci6n de otro
juez el pr6ximo aflo. El Capitan
S Andy Lewis de La Divisi6n Civil dijo
que su departamento esta a cargo
de 6rdenes de registro, multas
civiles y expedients de ofendedores
sexuales. Todos los casos se han
doblado lo que signifaca que ahora
tienen trabajo double, la mayoria de
estos casos son de Port LaBelle.
Hasta ahora alli hay 4.500 6rdenes
de registry activas en Hendry. Di-
visi6n Civil atiende unos 12.000
documents legales por afio. El
patrullero de caminos Capitan Joe
Johnson es el responsible de La
Division de Justicia que incluye
seis investigadores tres de ellos en
LaBelle y tres en Clewiston. Este
departamento atiende narc6ticos,
poligrafia, escenas de crime, evi-
dencias y drogas.
En Recursos Humanos Susie
Hicks dijo su departamento man-
tiene los expedients y entrenamien-
tos de los empleados al dia, partici-
pa en las entrevistas con el consejo
administrative y es reponsable de
los salaries.
La Director de Finanzas Cheryl
Hicks dijo que debido a los recortes
de presupuesto que hay ahora to-
dos los departamentos estan obli-
gados a reducir los gastos. Con un
presupuesto de #10 millones La
Oficina de La Policia lo tiene que
repartir en tres secciones: La Ley
de Enforzamiento, Crcel y Sistema
Judicial.El 67% del presupuesto se
va para La Ley de Enforzamiento
que incluye administraci6n, expe-
dientes, patrulleros de caminos,
guards de trdfico escolares, ofi-
ciales civiles, recursos humans y
tiles.
Algunos programs usan don-
aciones para alargar el presu-
puesto. Desde el afio 2005 se han
recibido $548.000 en donaciones.
La sefiora Hicks dijo que debido
a la economic actual van a ser nec-
esarios various recortes, el presu-
puesto de este afio quedard igual.
Los recortes no se han terminado
sin embargo, nadie esta seguro de
lo que nos espera mas adelante.
Temporada de Baloncesto
Se necesitan entrenadores, asis-
tentes de entrenadores, Arbitros y
otros ayudantes para la temporada
de baloncesto juvenile.
Las divisions para nifios y
muchachos son de kinder a segun-
do grado, de tercero a quinto y de
quinto hasta octavo grado. Las divi-
sions para nifias y muchachas son
de kinder a segundo y de tercero a
octavo afio.

'Halloween' en
el Kiwanis


Traigan los nifios al Club de Ki-
wanis en LaBelle, al primer "Trunk
or Treat" annual de Halloween, a las
6pm 31 de octubre, 2008. "Trunk
or Treat", es una version modifica-
da de la fiesta regular. Varias de las
Iglesias locales lo han celebrado en
afios pasados. Es una manera segu-
ra para que los nifios participen del
"trick or treat" en su bfsqueda de
dulces, y evitar los peligr tpicos
asociados con esta celebraci6n.
Kiwanis le pide a todos sus mi-
embros y a los ciudadanos de La-
Belle para que se unan a ellos el vi-
ernes 31 de octubre del 2008, en el
parqueo del "Kiwanis Thrift Store."
Se le pide a todos los participants
que traiga su vehiculo alrededor de
las 5:15 p.m. y los estacionen con
el maletero abierto, virado hacia.
fuera, y decorado a su gusto. Al Ile-
gar los niios, iran de auto en auto
en vez de ir de puerta en puerta.
En cada maletero habra dulces;
algunos quizAs tengan juegos y
premios.
Nuevamente, el event comen-
zarA a las 6pm y durara aproxi-
madamente una hora. Sera muy
divertido y una gran oportunidad
para relacionarse con los nifios de
la comunidad.

It is one of the largest inde-

TALLAHASSEE-Represen-
tatives from Florida's banking
industry met with Gov. Charlie
Crist at the Governors Mansion
recently to convey important
news: Florida's banks are the saf-
est place for citizens to keep their
money. And, furthermore, 'banks
are ready to lend.
Especially in these turbulent
economic times, its important to
know that an FDIC insured bank
is the best place to have your
money, said Alex Sanchez, Presi-
dent and CEO of the Florida Bank-
ers Association (FBA).
In the 75 years since the FDIC
was established, not a dime-not
even a penny-of an insured de-
posit has been lost.
Recent changes now allow for
customers to have $250,000 of
insurance, which can be crafted
to allow for even more coverage
depending upon the number and
structure of accounts.
One of the messages that the
FBA and bankers shared with the
Governor is that Florida's banks
are strong, have money to lend
and are open for business.
We discussed the states eco-
nomic status and gave Gov. Crist
an update on the lending industry
in Florida, said Sanchez. Recent

Bi


headlines would lead you to be-
lieve that money for mortgages
has dried up.
The truth is, banks have mon-
ey to lend homeowners for new
purchases and to refinance exist-
ing mortgages as well as money
to lend small businesses that need
access to capital.
Additionally, members of the
FBA wanted to reinforce mes-
sages that bankers want to keep
people in their homes and only
use foreclosure as a last resort.
Anyone behind in their pay-
ments of their mortgage should
contact his or her banker imme-
diately.
Bankers are working with their
customers and want to avoid
foreclosure if at all possible, said
Sanchez. Call your lenders. They
understand when there are chal-
lenges to overcome and will work
with you to find the best solu-
tions.

closes Loop

Road
The portion of Loop Road
south of the Gator Hook
Strand site and west of the
Loop Road Education Center
will be closed to vehicle traffic.
This closure does not apply to
landowners and their guests.
The closure is warranted due
to water over topping the road-
bed creating the potential for
unsafe driving conditions. This
portion of the road is gravel,
and the combination of water
over the roadway, and vehicle
traffic has washed away road
materials.
The paved portion west of
the Preserve boundary and
east of the Loop Road Educa-
tion Center remains under a
travelers advisory.
If travel along the road is
necessary, the use of a high
clearance vehicle is strongly
suggested. The National Park
Service strongly discourages
travel along this section of the
roadway for all but local resi-
dents and their guests.

Christ presents video

LaBelle, is showing a video series
entitled The Silencing of God, on
Sunday evenings now through
November 2.
Learn what the Founding Fa-
thers of our nation stood for and
the Christian principles they be-
lieved in.
The moral and spiritual under-
pinnings of American civilization
are collapsing. Did our Founding


Fathers...
-Advocate "separation of
church and state"?
Reject expressions of Chris-
tianity in government and public
school?
Intend for federal institutions
to be religiously neutral?
SApprove of same-sex mar-
riage?
These questions and more
will be answered. Original docu-
ments, speeches, books and their
wording will be examined to re-
veal our Founding Father's intent
in founding this nation.
Our history textbooks of the
last 50 years are not telling us the
truth. Come and hear it for your-
selves and then stay for the great
food and fellowship that follows.
Central Church of Christ is
located at 60 Hendry Street, in
LaBelle, and Sunday evening ser-
vices begin at 6 p.m.

Food Service Program dedicated to kids


personally and understood their
needs.
Charlie himself always had a
strong appreciation for his em-
ployees. In spite of the hard work
and low salary, Charlie said, "they
always put the kids first."
Recently retired, Charlie is
looking back on his days with
those folks and wants everyone
to see what he does their total
dedication to their job and the
children they serve.
That dedication can be judged
by its results. In 2007, Hendry
County School Food Service pro-
gram was recognized by W.J.

We all remember the lunch-
room ladies from school. For the
most part they kept behind the
scenes, but are a part of every
student's school years even if we
didn't notice them very much or

the program to Jamie Sealey, but
still knows a lot about the lunch-

South Florida's Dry Season on the Horizon


West Palm Beach, FL- With the official
start of Florida's dry season about a month
away, conservation remains critical to protect
the water supply for the 16-county South Flor-
ida Water Management District (SFWMD).
District meteorologists predict there is a
good chance the amount of rain that does fall
during the dry season-beginning November
1-will be below average. The reason is El
Nifio is not expected to develop. El Niflo is an
oscillation of the ocean-atmosphere system in
the tropical Pacific that tends to increase the
amount of rainfall for Florida.
Conservation is a key hedge against weath-
er extremes and an estimated six million new
Florida residents by 2025.
The State of theSystem
Since June 1, District-wide rainfall averaged
35.18 inches during the first four months of
the wet season. September's rainfall average
was 5.56 inches, about one-and-a-half inches
below the historical average for the month.
Water- conditions are now above average
throughout the District, including in the three
Water Conservation Areas and several Storm-
water Treatment Areas. Most lakes in the Up-
per Kissimmee Chain of Lakes are at or near
regulation schedule. Lake Istokpoga's water
level is slightly above its regulation schedule.
With a water level of 14.96 NGVD today,
Lake Okeechobee is at the upper end of its
preferred.operational water level of 12.5 feet
NGVD to 15.5 feet NGVD. The U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers continues to make pulse
water releases from Lake Okeechobee. For
details, visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Region embarks on branding, marketing campaign


SOUTHWEST FLORIDA, FL., October 8,
2008 The Southwest Florida Economic De-
velopment Partners, a volunteer initiative of
the. economic development executives work-
ing on regional branding and marketing op-
portunities for Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota,
Glades and Hendry counties, has selected the
creative marketing firm of Chisano Marketing
Group to develop its new regional branding
and marketing campaign.
"We are excited about the many opportu-
nities to regionally brand and market econom-
ic diversification in Southwest Florida," said
Tammie Nemecek, President of the Economic
Development Council of Collier County. "Chi-
sano Marketing Group will be instrumental in
our efforts to create an image, for Southwest
Florida as a place to relocate and/or grow
your business, particularly those companies
providing high-wage, value-added jobs."
Chisano Marketing Group is a full-service
marketing firm with offices in Orlando, Tampa
and Dayton, Ohio. The firm was chosen from
a pool of agencies reviewed by the Southwest
Florida Economic Development Partners to
provide a wide scope of services aimed at
raising the regional appeal of Southwest Flor-
ida as a destination for businesses.
"The hiring of a creative marketing firm is
an important first step toward accomplishing
our goal of developing a regional identity and
brand for Southwest Florida," said Jim Moore,
Interim Director for the Lee County Office of
Economic Development. "This is trulythe first


time that such a regional initiative has taken
place in this part of the state." :
Don Root, Director of the Economic Devel-
opment Office of Charlotte County, noted the
initiative could encourage more businesses
to expand here and bring in more grants to
spur economic development. "This gives us
an opportunity to work collectively and lever-
age our regional assets and lead the state of
Florida into a new era of job creation."
Effective October 6, 2008, Chisano Market-
ing Group will work to understand the vari-
ous communities in the region along with the
unique assets and infrastructure and coalesce
an image that effectively demonstrates the re-
gional ability to attract and grow the targeted
business clusters that will produce high-wage
jobs and diversify the region's economy.
"The communities throughout our region
are quite diverse. But this regional partner-
ship provides us with a valuable opportunity
to work together toward the common goal of
supporting economic development in South-
west Florida," said Ron Zimmerly, Economic
Development Manager for the Hendry County
Economic Development Council, Inc.
Tracy Whirls, Executive Director of the
Glades County Economic Development
Council, commented, "We are very pleased
to be part of this new and exciting initiative.
The economic development leaders in the six
counties of our region are working toward the
shared objective of improving the economic
environment throughout Southwest Florida."


Chisano Marketing Group will begin by fa-
cilitating a meeting with representatives from
the various economic development organiza-
tion's throughout the region and select a group
of other stakeholders. Information from the
meeting will then be used to create a written
communications and marketing plan that will
include a timeline and detailed budget to im-
plement at a future date the following items
or others as deemed appropriate:
Regional identity and brand develop'
ment, to include new logo and motto. This
will also include incorporating logo-identity
into the design of letterhead, envelopes, Web
site and other outreach material. -
Creation of initial marketing collateral.
Newsletter, brochure and flyer tem-
plates.
Web-ready logo artwork.
Development of a detailed communi-
cations plan and budget to inform regional
stakeholders and target industry businesses
within and outside the region. The plan will
include a menu of choices from which the
stakeholders can choose.
"Southwest Florida has so many unique as-
sets that businesses desire in choosing exactly
where to locate and whether to expand," said
Kathy Baylis, President of the Economic De-
velopment Corporation of Sarasota County.
"This initiative will help promote these assets
to more businesses and allow them to under-
stand what this region has to offer."

Earlier Steve Whidden responded by stating:
" requested that I be removed from the Taskforce due to the fact that
there were literally no drug activity on the street and could not justify my
resources being assigned to the them any longer. I requested that
the DEA transfer me back to active duties'in the City, as this was a
waste of resources at that time."

Quoting the minutes from the official transcript as written in the notes
in the Regular Commission Meeting on August 15th, 2005 by the City
Clerk:

"PRESENTATION Police Department'
"Mayor Chamness read a letter written by Police Chief Don Gutshall to
the Clewiston Police Departments Narcotics Enforcement Unit, that '
said in part, "I have served more than 15 years at a command level and
more than 23 years total in law enforcement......... have never seen
or been associated with a group of people so dedicated to the com-
munity they serve.... .the Narcotics Enforcement Unit has managed to
virtually shut down and seal off the operations of local illegal drug oper-
ations in a span of eight months..

The Commission commended the police officers, which included Matt
Duncan, Chad Pelham, Kelly Taylor, Max Van D'Huynslager, Don
Weathers, Steve Whidden, and Assistant Chief Kristine Peterson. The
audience joined the commission in applauding their outstanding
efforts."

I sincerely hope that this now sets the record straight. As many citi-
zens have already contacted me and expressed their support, I would
appreciate your vote as your next Sheriff of Hendry Countyl
