Holiday fun: Santa arrives!


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Good ol' Santa and Mrs. Claus. In spite of the demands on their time as Christmas
draws nearer, they still managed to spend the evening with LaBelle's children at the an-
nual Christmas in the Park event. It was Friday, Dec. 5, and all through the park, every
creature was stirring and, oh, what a lark! Here they are with little Leah Greene the
smile on her face says it all!


County:



Delay USSC



contract


Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Hendry County commis-
sions vented their agitation
with-Gov. Crist and what they
perceive to be his lack of fol-
low-through in not coming up
with an economic plan to help
the area transition through the
loss of its largest employer.
The deal sealing South Flori-
da Water Management District's
purchase of United States Sug-
ar Corporation is expected to
be signed Dec. 15, despite the
lack of any sign of the promised
economic plan.
At their Dec. 9 meeting in
LaBelle, Hendry County com-
missioners voted to contribute
$10,000 to an effort to delay the
contract vote.
In making the motion, Com-
missioner Kevin McCarthy said
he did not believe SFWMD
would sell any of the USSC land-
it buys back to farming interests
and decried the Governor's ap-
parent lack of concern for Hen-
dry County's sagging employ-
ment picture a picture that
stands to become even more,


critical with the sale. He said
the sale will have the largest im-
pact on the county of anything
on the next 20 years.

Impact fees
The commissioners voted to
extend its suspension of impact
fees though the end of Febru-
ary.
The board originally sus-
pended the fees, designed to
make .development pay for it-
self, last January in response to
the serious decline in building
during this economic down-
turn.
Commissioner McCarthy
also said the board should get
input from both LaBelle and
Clewiston as well as the school
board in deciding how to pro-,
ceed.

Sheriff said goodbye
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said fare-
well to the board, saying he
would be leaving the Sheriff's
Office in good shape. Upset

Kulpa disputes



election result


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Even the Grinch loves Christmas in LaBellel The annual Christmas parade, sponsored
by the City of. LaBelle and Heartland Construction, had folks lined up all down Main
Street as the ever-expanding parade made its way down to Barron Park where the en-
tire community came to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season.


Kristina Kulpa, Hendry
County Property Appraiser,
*announced the filing of her
election contest complaint
disputing the outcome of her
re-election bid conducted on
Tuesday, November 4, 2008.
Following the certification of
the results on November 14th,
Ms. Kulpa, on Monday, Novem-
ber 24th, filed her lawsuit with
the Circuit Court as required by
state law. Ms. Kulpa stated:
"If the election was not so
close, I would accept the final
results. However, because the
margin of victory was only five
votes and at least one criminal
complaint has been filed with
the Hendry County Sheriff's
office alleging gross irregulari-
ties in the voting, the people
of Hendry County deserve to
know whether this was a fair
and honest election."
Ms. Kulpa added:


"The integrity of Hendry
County elections must be main-
tained. Nothing is more impor-
tant than insuring that the will
of the voters is followed. Once
that is determined, I will abide
by it, win lose or draw."
With just five votes sepa-
rating her from her opponent,
Democrat Phillip Pelletier, Ms.
Kulpa demanded a recount af-
ter the Nov. 4 election. Mr. Pel-
letier had garnered 5,255 votes
to Ms. Kulpa's 5,250.
However, with some dif-
ferences in the count, the end
result was the same a separa-
tion of five votes with Mr. Pel-
letier winning.
After the recount, Ms. Kulpa
stated that she intends to pur-
sue any avenue she may find
saying, "I am not relinquishing
my job," she said, "I still have
the office. I do not feel defeat-
ed."

With contract in the wings, farmers look to state


By Nina G. Wills
INI Florida
As the deadline for finalizing
the contract between the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict and U.S. Sugar quickly ap-
proaches, area farmers are asking
the district to avoid the uninten-
tional consequences of this deal
which may hurt their businesses.
"The people we represent
should not be the unintended
consequence of a lofty envi-
ronmental goal executed by a
bad business deal," said George
Wedgworth, president and CEO
of Sugar Growers' Cooperative,
in a letter to the district on Dec.
2 asking the governing board re-
consider the deal.
Local farmers have stressed
that they are not questioning U.S.
Sugar's prerogative to sell 180,000
acres of its land to the district, but
are challenging the land lease
rates of $50 an acre which they
believe are unreasonably low and
will eliminate competition in the
sugar cane industry.
"There is no justifiable urgen-
cy that requires you to rush this
matter. There is nothing to be lost
and much to be gained by includ-
ing everyone in this discussion,"
Wedgworth wrote.
There has been no formal
response by the SFWMD to the
Sugar Cooperative's concerns ac-
cording to Barbara Miedema, vice
president of public affairs & com-
munications.
"I think they (the district) got
the message loud and clear,"
said Miedema, referring. to the
outpouring of public comments
against the deal at the governing
board's meeting Dec. 2.
Wedgworth and other farm-
ers are supportive of restoring
the Everglades and point to their
active role in preserving the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area- 800,000
acres of muck lands south of Lake


Okeecholjee.
"We understand that in order
to continue farming in this eco-
logically sensitive region we must
be stewards of the land and'envi-
ronment," Wedgworth said.
The Everglades Agricultural
Area Protection Division was es-


tablished in 1989 and is a taxing
body that charges agricultural
landowners an annual tax of $5
an acre to fund research in envi-
ronmental issues. In recent years,
the EPD has collaborated with
the SFWMD to improve the water
quality by reducing phosphorous


levels. Since its inception, the EPD
has raised $27 million.
Ed Hamilton, chair of the EPD,
said that the EPD has remained
neutral concerning the SFWMD's
deal with U.S. Sugar. "I'm in no
way, shape, or form supporting
either."


Mr. Hamilton is also the chief
operating officer of Duda Ranch-.
es in Belle Glade which grows
almost 25,000 acres of sugar
cane annually. Duda Ranches
transports its cane to U.S. Sugar's
mill in Clewiston to be processed.
Due to a conflict of interest, Duda
Ranches has also remained neu-
tral. He did note that the pending
deal has not interrupted Duda
Ranches' business or transactions
with U.S. Sugar.
Hamilton stressed that area


farmers are not arguing U.S. Sug-
ar's right to sale their land, but are
simply concerned with the poten-
tial consequences of the deal.
"If the transaction goes
through, it will have an enor-
mous impact on the communi-
ties around the lake, and the ag-
riculture business in the state of
Florida," Hamilton said.
U.S. Sugar's board of directors
approved the contract on Dec. 8
and is awaiting the decision from
the SFWMD expected Dec. 15.

Aqua Isles residents oppose sale


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Aqua Isles Mobile Home Park
and. its residents have been sol-
id supporters of many LaBelle
projects over the years. Now, it
seems, the park could cease to
exist if plans by a developer from
Arizona work out.
+ The park was established for
senior citizens and has been char-
acterized by quiet but active resi-
dents and well-kept residences.
The new owner, Morgan Sham-
rock Aqua Isles LLC, is based in
Paradise Valley, AZ, which buys
and sells mobile home parks.
The company purchased the park
about one-and-a-half years ago.
The sale of the park is open to
Aqua Isles residents all they have
to do is get enough residents to-
gether with the money.
Aqua Isles Homeowners As-
sociation President Don Craig
said the original asking price
was too high, but then the com-

with "rumors" regarding his dis-
position of department vehicles,
he said he has dedicated his life to
law enforcement and it's a shame
to go out "with a slam-bam" like
I received."

Board reorganization
It was time for the board's an-
nual reorganization. Janet Taylor
was selected as chair and Darrell
Harris as vice chair. Other com-
missioners received various board
positions.

New director
The board welcomed long
time health department employee
Pat Dobbins in her new position
as Director of the Hendry-Glades
Health Department.

Palm Tran
The board decided to continue
to contribute to the Palm Tran
public transportation which runs
from the Clewiston area to Palm
Beach County. Several residents
asked the commissioners not to
derail the transportation, citing
the dire need of many residents
without other options to go to
work, school and doctor's ap-
pointments.
The board will designate
$60,000 this year for the purpose,
but will also ask Palm Beach
County to look for ways to trim
the expense.

Sub office
More structural damage has
been found in the old Sheriff's
Suboffice, which"was severely
damaged in Hurricane Wilma.
The discovery could add 25 per-
cent to any bids.


pany agreed on $16 million the
amount the property was ap-
praised at. It is still a huge amount
for senior citizens to raise.
According to Mr. Craig, the ma-
jority of residents would prefer to
be able to purchase the park and
run it themselves. Aqua Isles has
a total of 224 mobile home lots
and o160 RV lots. Thereare about
75 year round residents.
To get a sale started, a down


T.I


payment would require 40 per-
cent of all residents to participate.
If enough residents would partici-
pate a commitment was due Dec.
5 a down payment the residents
did not have.
If a sale is successful, each
resident would be a shareholder
in the park. Mr. Craig feels their
. age may, work against some of
the resident's ability or desire to
become shareholders in the park.


He is also aware that the current
economy has many people leery
of making a big financial commit-
ment of any kind.
Even if the residents cannot
come up with the funding to pur-
chase the park, Mr. Craig feels it
will be a while before another
buyer will be found.
"Residents like living here," Mr
Craig said, "The economy is the
biggest thing."

CONDUCT UNBECOMING ...: How pathetic our local Republican
leaders have turned out to be! Kristina Kulpa refusing to admit defeat,
and willing to cost one of the poorest counties in Florida thousands
of dollars for a recount election, because she lost by 5 votes. When
you loose by 1 vote you still loose, sorry Ms. Kulpa, a poor looser is
really pathetic! Let's not forget our great sheriff, who would take his
car to Georgia and sell it, just to keep the new Sheriff from being able
to use it, and this bought with the tax payers money! No other word'
but PATHETIC! Thank God the people of Hendry County and the US
have finally woken up!

DOESN'T ADD UP: Hendry County unemployment is around 15%
and yet we need guest workers, plus United Way Agencies helped
about 40% of the people in Hendry and Glades counties.
Where are these people when jobs go to guest workers?

S.WATER WOES: In. response to a previous "Speak Out" entry, my
family and I agree with the problems we are having with our LaBelle
city water. The dishes in our dishwasher don't get clean anymore. In-
stead, they come out with a white film that has to be removed before
we can use our glasses and dishes. Of course, we all know that we
cannot drink the water from the tap, but one wonders how safe it is
to even bathe, wash clothes, or wash our dishes. It is Very disturbing
when the health of our family could be at stake just from the use of
our city water. Really, when you think about it, why do we have to pay
for our water service? Even our dog refuses to drink it, We use bottle
water for the pets, too. But how much water gets in the mouths of
babies and small children when we bathe them? How much residue
are our family members consuming? It is possible that we are all con-
taminated every day, and we are paying for it to boot?
(The City of LaBelle's water meets EPA safety standards. Only
abnormal color is an issue.)

Thank you

Elementary would like to express
their gratitude to the LaBelle Ki-

a check for $250 so some of the
students would be able to go to
the Boradway Dinner Theatre.
This money will provide a buf-

Letters to the Editor


To whomever is
responsible:
I'm curious as to who is footing
the bill for the new, lighted,
concrete "Hendry County" sign
that has recently appeared west
on Highway 80.
I understand that these signs
are to be built at all entrances to
the county, so I'd like to know if
this is "my tax dollars at work."
Thank you,
Julie Jeffords

Election or Subjection
They say that "misery loves
company," so I guess that's why
I have chosen to share some


thoughts that are capturing my
"misery." Just like everyone I
talked to on my recent trip back
to the mid- west, I keep waiting
on someone to possibly explain
how the Presidential election re-
ally came about.
Like the blind sow that rooted,
long and hard enough, I finally
came up with some answers. It
turns out that a professor at Hem-
line University School of Law, in
St. Paul, Minn., Joseph Olson,
also had similar concerns and did
some research. He came up with
facts that I feel were significantly
important in understanding how
the votes were really cast, and
what message they might convey.


The number of states won by:
Democrats-- 20; Republicans--
30. Square miles of land won by:
Democrats-- 580,000: Republi-
cans-- 2,427,000. Population of
counties won by: Democrats-- 127
million;.Republicans-- 143 million.
Murder rate per 100,000 residents
in counties won by: Democrats--
13.2; Republicans: 2.1. Professor
Olson surmises that extrapolation
of this data reveals: "In aggregate,
a map of the territory Republi-
cans won was mostly owned
by taxpaying citizens. Democrat
territory mostly encompassed
those persons living in rented or
government-owned tenements
and living off of various forms


of government welfare." Olson
believes the United States is now
somewhere between the "com-
placency and apathy" phase of
renowned Professor Tyler's defi-
nition of democracy, "wherein
some forty percent of the nation's
population have already reached
the socialistic governmental de-
pendency phase" of existence,
not substance.
WOW!'I guess we really are
in for the promised "change and
hope" that propelled the candi-
date who promised a "handout"
while the rest of us have to put
our "hands up."
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville

out of you mouth? Are you really
tired of it all???
Good! When you're really tired
of the way it is, you may be ready
to get serious about ho Christmas
can be. Let me tell you about Ad-
vent. It's from a Latin word that
means "coming." It's a season of
the year that is celebrated in some
churches, but not all. Sometimes
churches get caught up in fast
tempo of the season as well. Ad-
vent is a quieter season, a time for
people to be quite intentional in
thinking about Jesus' birth and
abut his return. It's a time for
people of moderate or no faith
also, a time to reflect on how life
is going. Is it really the way I'd like


it over with your family. Have a
plan!
Prepared Remember to
take enough medications with
you. Don't put prescribed medi-
cations in your suitcase. You don't
want your suitcase to get lost with
your medications inside! Keep all
medications in their original con-
tainers and put them your per-
sonal bag that stays with you at all
times. Take your doctor's phone
number with you as well as your
pharmacy's phone number just in
case you need medications while
you are away. No one wants to be
sick during a vacation, but try to
think about what you would do if
you or a loved one should get sick


it, or does it fall short? If you're
not a hard-core, evangelistic athe-
ist, perhaps this Advent (it started
on November 30) might be a time
for you to drop out of the rat race
temporarily and think about how
faith in Jesus might improve yous
'life. If you're bold, you might
even try going to church to see
what it's all about.
At the very least, a few quiet
hours out of all the rush and hur-
ry will help you get some much
needed rest this season. No one
is going to change your life for
you. No one will step in to make
Christmas the way it used to be or
the wayyou'd like it to be. No one
will force you to try anything I've
suggested. You need to decide.

Importance of reading labels of today's pharmaceuticals


By Peter Pitts
These days, getting the entire
family around the same table is a
rarity. That's why the holiday sea-
son is a perfect time to sit down
with loved ones and talk about
the many issues that too often go
ignored. One issue that's worthy
of discussion? The importance of
reading drug labels.
Americans today have access
to more cutting-edge pharma-
ceuticals than ever before. But
medicines carry risks. Failing to.
pay attention to a drug's label --
by taking more than the recom-
mended dosage or mixing with
the wrong medicines -- can lead
to serious side effects.
Right now, only the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) has
the authority to approve drug la-
bels. This helps consumers by en-
suring that labels in all 50 states
contain the same warnings about
potential side effects and instruc-
tions for safe usage.
That may soon change. The
Supreme Court is about to de-
cide a landmark case about drug
labels. The question before the
Court is whether expert scientists
at the FDA or local juries should
have the final say regarding


what's written on a prescription
drug's warning label.
It all goes back to Diana Levine,
a Vermont woman who went to
a clinic because of a migraine.
In the course of her treatment,
a doctor's aide administered the
anti-nausea drug Phenergan.
Tragically, the drug was improp-
erly injected despite an explicit
warning label. Levine ended up
losing her arm.
Levine sued the physician,
the assistant, and the clinic. Each
settled. But she also sued Wyeth,
the company that produces Phen-
ergan. A Vermont jury ruled that
even though Phenergan's label
had been approved by the FDA,
Wyeth should have prohibited the
method of administration used in
Levine's treatment.
This put Wyeth in a pickle.
By Vermont law, the company
was now obligated to prohibit a
particular method of drug deliv-
ery. Satisfying this requirement,
though, would put the company
at odds with the FDA.
If the Court rules against Wy-
eth, drugs could be required to
have different labels in each state.
And labels might end up reading
like complex legal disclaimers.


Regardless of what the Su-
preme Court decides, this case
should remind all of us about the
importance of carefully reading
and following the instructions
on drug labels. There's no better


time than the holidays to make
sure your loved ones are doing
just that.
Peter Pitts is President of the Center for
Medicine In the Public Interest and a
former fDA Associate Commissioner.


Witches Brew


By Pudge Lehman
The week started with a bang
(literally) I shut my trunk lid, in
the dark, and hit myself in the
forehead nearly knocking myself
out... Got into the car and went
to the Swamp Cabbage meeting.
As I sat there my forehead started
to swell and by the time I went
home I had a good sized goose
egg. Realizing there were no fro-
zen veggies to use as an ice pack
i settled on a one pound chub of
Jimmy Dean sausage. I still have
the goose egg and three days
later my eye turned black. Some
days it's not even worth chewing
through the restraints.
To keep groceries from sliding
all over your truck bed use keep
some milk crates back there and
two spring loaded shower curtain
rods from side to side to keep the
crates from sliding.


J
To remove oil stains from your
driveway pour cola on it, wait a
few and rinse.
There are some weird things
out there for people with way to
much money to spend. A 5-inch
plastic, yodeling pickle, a tee shirt
that says "I like cats I just can't eat
a whole one by myself" and one
that says "I'm soooooooo not lis-
tening."

Writing for fun and learning
The faculty at Country Oaks Elementary has taken writing
to the stage in an effort to help their students prepare for
Florida Writes in February. Throughout the year the fourth
grade teachers and COES administrators have performed
various writing plays written by Melissa Forney. These plays
are spin-offs of favorite television shows like: Who Wants to
be a Gazillionaire?, American Writing Idol, Mission: Possible
and Detail Court. The students have gotten to sing and dance
too in an effort to make the writing process meaningful and
fun.
