FHP searches for hit, run driver


Two die on county roads


Two Hendry County residents
died on local highways this past
week, one a pedestrian in La-
Belle, the other a motorist in
Clewiston.
Authorities are seeking infor-
mation in the hit and run death
of 47-year-old Mirian Lopez.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Ms. Lopez was
walking south in the westbound
lane on Cowboy Way (CR 80A)
just west of Lillian Street at about
10:30 p.m.


She entered the eastbound
lane, in the path of a red Ford
Explorer or Expedition which
struck the pedestrian with its
right front.
The victim was transported
to Lee Memorial Hospital where
she was later pronounced dead.
Authorities say the Ford left
the scene before the trooper ar-
rived.
The vehicle is described as a
Ford Explorer or Expedition with
brown or grey trim on the bot


tom and dark tinted windows.
Anyone with information re-
garding this hit and run is asked
to contact the Florida Highway
Patrol at 1-239-938-1800. Cpl.
Williams is the traffic homicide
investigator.
Just after midnight on Mon-
day, Feb. 9, a second traffic fatal
ity occurred, this time on US 27
east of CR 835.
FHP reports that all five occu-
pants in a 2003 Ford SUV were
ejected after the SUV and a 2009


four-door Toyota sideswiped
each other.
The driver of the SUV 32-
year-old Roeri Marrero, was pro
nounced dead at the hospital.
His passengers: Carmen
Vazquez, 43, Lynette Concep-
cion, 11, and Yonel Concepcion,
18, suffered serious injuries and
were transported to Delray Re-
gional Hospital. Five-year-old
Carlos Marrero also suffered seri-
ous injuries and was transported
to St. Mary's Hospital.


No one in the vehicle had
been wearing a seatbelt.
Driver Dipankar Biswas, 34,
and passenger Pampa Biswas,
28, both of India, were the occu-
pants of the Toyota.
They sustained minor injuries
and were treated at Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center.
Trooper S. Rongish was the
crash investigator and Cpl. J.
Benton is the homicide investi-
gator.


Home grown beauty
LaBelle's very own Miss Ashley Pittman was crowned
Miss Hendry County for 2009 at the Hendry County Fair
Friday, Feb. 6, in Clewiston. A senior at LaBelle High
School, the new Miss Hendry County is the daughter of
Ray and Maggie Pittman.


Freeze costs



farmers money


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Hendry County's signifi-
cant agricultural community is
already planning to rebound
from Mother Nature's latest
stumbling block two bouts
of freezing temperatures in the
past several weeks.
According to University of
Florida Cooperative Extension
Agronomist and Sugar Cane
expert Les Baucum, most veg-
etable fields that survived the
first blast of freezing tempera-


tures also made it through the
second one although some did
not.
"Most of the damage was
done during the earlier freeze,"
he pointed out. He said some
small watermelons that were
covered made it through okay.
A lot of watermelons are still in
the ground and some tomatoes
were saved, he said. He pre-
dicts farmers will be replanting
as soon as they are able. They
will need to get more crops in

Kiwanians have a huge mess to clean up after the thrift
store on Bridge Street was gutted in a suspicious blaze
Sunday night. The group is taking donations at the store,
looking forward to reopening the much-needed shop.


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Law enforcement and emer-
gency personnel rallied in their
unanimous support of the fam-
ily of Sgt. Michael Lee Home as
they laid him to rest Wednes-
day, Feb. 4, at Fort Denaud
Cemetery. It was a solemn and
impressive full law enforce-
ment funeral, Sgt. Home's fam-
ily, including his two young
daughters.
Sheriff Steve Whidden ac
companied the fallen officer's
daughters through what had
to be the most difficult time of
their young lives.
The huge display of solidarity
began outside the LaBelle Civic
Center with row upon row of
Hendry County officers stand-
ing in honor of their comrade
and his family. A piper from the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office Pipes & Drum Corps sol-
emnly piped the family to their
seats before Rev. L.W. Howard


began the service. He assured
the officer's family and friends
that they must grieve but that
"joy cometh in the morning."
He said it is a time for the fam-
ily to come together, including
Sgt. Home's larger law enforce
ment family.
"There is power in the fam-
ily," he told them.
Rev. Howard told the
mourners that Sgt. Home was
a model cop, a mentor and
leader he had gotten to know
while in the line of duty, provid-
ing strength and assistance to
the people of Hendry County.
Sgt. Home got a promotion
from the Lord, he told them,
and a furlow from "battle
zone."
Sheriff Steve Whidden re-
membered his friend and fel-
low officer as possessing an
"extraordinary character" with
a big heart and appetite for life
whose untimely passing "left
the world a little out of bal-


ance."
He said Sgt. Home imparted
a sense of security to the citi-
zens as a symbol of peace and
service and carried himself with
a professional but compassion-
ate bearing. After the service,
the procession wound its way
slowly to Fort Denaud Cem-
etery, passing under a huge
American flag set up over SR
80 where firefighters stood at
attention as the family and the
hearse passed through.
The Home family sat quietly
by the graveside as their loved
one's law enforcement family
brought its ceremony of solemn
respect to a close with a 21-gun
salute, Taps and a flyover. It
ended with the traditional last
call. A dispatcher radioed his
call number, HCSO 123, three
times before noting his nega-
tive response and advising him
to rest in peace.

Arson suspected in fires


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle Kiwanis Club mem-
bers will be even busier than
usual for the next month or so.
They figure it will take that long
to clean up the mess.
Late Sunday night, Feb. 8,
the Kiwanis Thrift Store was
gutted by a fire that appears to
have been deliberately set.
The fire marshal and the
Hendry County Sheriff's Of-
fice are investigating the inci-
dent and no definitive cause
has been identified yet, but lo-
cal firefighters confirmed that
the fire was actually kindled
at three different points in the
building.


The building sustained ma-
jor fire damage and smoke
damage throughout, but there
seems to be no serious struc
tural damage. Firefighters had
to break through a glass front
door to gain entrance.
Thrift store manager Dawn
Jefferies said the group will set
up a POD on the premises so
they can continue to accept
donations. That way, once the
clean up is done, the store can
pick up where it left off.
Without the Kiwanis Thirft
Store, many local people have
lost access to good, clean in-
expensive items critical to
their well being, especially in
this time of serious economic


stress.
In addition, the Kiwanis
Club itself has been dealt a
blow. The proceeds from the
thrift store are used to fund
the club's many community-
oriented activities.
At the same time firefight-
ers were battling the thrift store
blaze, another fire was called
in this one a vehicle on fire
at the Country Peddlar antique
shop at Bridge Street and Fort
Thompson Ave. The vehicle
was located outside, under the
carport area.
The inside of the vehicle
was destroyed, but firefight

Sgt. Horne passed away un
expectedly on Jan. 27 as he was
on his way home, coming off
his regular night shift. He was
a veteran of the Marine Corps
and had been with the sheriff's
office for ten years. He was 45
years old.
The last time HCSO lost one
if its own on duty was Brian

He noted that, when it costs
$12,000 per acre to plant toma-
toes, your investment is substan-
tial.
Although late last week the
full extent of the damages were
not known, he said he felt com-
fortable in saying the loss is in the
millions of dollars between both
of the freezes.
The loss includes the plants
in the ground and replacement

It is unclear at this time if the
two incidents were related.


will come back, Mr. Baucum
said.
Gulf Citrus Association Execu
tive Director Ron Hamil said cit-
rus actually took a bigger hit from
the first freeze a couple weeks
ago when temperatures stayed
low for a longer time. Some of
the younger trees and some of
the existing crop, especially in
Collier, Hendry and Glades' low
lying areas were hit pretty hard.
Most of the early and mid-
season crops have already been
harvested with Valencias most
vulnerable. He said no estimates
are available yet on losses but he
believes that, overall, the citrus
industry has come out of it pretty
well.
According to the county's fig
ures, Hendry County has some
79,726 acres in citrus, 70,000
acres in sugarcane and 20,000 in
vegetables.
Mr. Baucum commented,
"The optimist in me would like
to say we're through with the
cold. We've had a February full
moon and the old farmers like to
say that's the last best chance for
a freeze." But he added, "that's
not to say we can't have another
one."

Man charged in kidnapping


A LaBelle woman is safe and
a man incarcerated in Hendry
County Jail, charged Kidnapping
False Imprisonment, Damage
Proper-Criminal Mischief, Petit
Larceny and Battery.
The incident leading to the ar-
rest unfolded this way:
On January 31, at approxi-
mately 2:07 a.m., Deputy Na-
than Kirk of the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office conducted a traf
fic stop on a white Dodge Mini
van with a Delaware temporary
tag. He had witnessed the ve-
hicle traveling at a high rate of


speed through a red traffic light
at Bridge Street and SR 80.
After pulling the van over,
Deputy Kirk reported that 25-
year-old Armando Hernandez
exited the vehicle. A Hispanic
female also exited the vehicle
and ran to the deputy, upset and
crying.
He learned through the assis-
tance of a translator that Olivia
Aburto-Espina had been calling
for a taxi from the parking lot at
Latinos, when the white Dodge
mini van approached her and
Hernandez allegedly grabbed


her and pulled her into the van.
She told officers she tried to es
cape Hernandez but he was able
to force her into the van pushing
her down onto the floor board
and punching her in the back
of the head. Ms. Aburto-Espino
stated she remained there until
the vehicle had been stopped by
law enforcement.
Armando Hernandez was
then taken into custody and is
currently being held on $152,000
bond.

Deputies investigate stabbing


In the early morning hours of
February 8, 2009, deputies were
called to respond to the area
of 585 N. Cabbage Palm Street,
Clewiston, regarding a stabbing
that had just taken place.
Upon the arrival of deputies,
18-year-old Damon Leon Pewo
was found sitting on the arm of
the couch inside the residence
holding a large stainless steel
knife in his hand.
He was ordered by deputies to
release the weapon and he com-


plied.
Pewo's mother, Angela Tiger,
stated that she and 39-year-old
victim, Gary Don Warden had
been sleeping in their room when
she was awakened by the sudden
jolting of the bed.
She turned to find her son
Pewo on top of Warden. She was
able to remove Pewo from the
bedroom and keep him out until
law enforcement arrived.
Once Pewo had been re
strained, deputies went to check


on Warden where he was found
unresponsive lying on the bed.
Medical personnel arrived on
scene and after all resuscitative ef
forts to revive the victim had been
exhausted he was pronounced
dead.
Investigators are still trying to
determine the motive for the kill
ing. Pewo was then arrested and
charged with Homicide -Wilful
Kill.


Goodwill opens Clewiston donation center


Clewiston- Most folks around
Hendry County know Clewiston
Town Center as a place and shop.
Goodwill Industries of Southwest
Florida is hoping that people grow
to think of Clewiston Town Center
as a place to donate, as well. As of
Friday, Feb. 13, Goodwill will have
a new Attended Donation Center
(ADC) at the popular shopping
center.
The new ADC will provide
nearby residents with a more
convenient donation option on
the weekends. It will be open and
staffed with an attendant Fri.-Sun.
from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Goodwill's
existing store at 112 E. Sugarland
Highway will also continue to
accept donations during regular
store hours.
Goodwill continues to accept
donations at both its Clewiston
and LaBelle stores.... the new
ADC is just another option to
make donating on the weekends
a little bit easier.
Customers with large items
to donate (furniture and appli-
ances) are asked to make those
donations at the Clewiston store
on Sugarland Highway, which is
large enough to accommodate
large donations.

County plans for future


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The board decided it was not
interested in purchasing the Da-
vis property west of Courthouse,
including the old Long Branch,
Don's Steakhouse and a storage
building. The board felt the Mc-
Cormick property south of the
Courthouse would be more use-
ful.
Commissioner Kevin McCa-
rthy noted that, at some point in
the future when the jail is moved,
the county will get use of the jail
site back, so there will be room
to expand. He also didn't like the
idea of taking prime commercial
property off the tax rolls.
Commissioner Tris Chapman
called for a breakdown of finances
for each department so the com-
missioners can better understand
how their funds are used.
Public hearings
The old Evercane refinery
property was rezoned from agri-
culture/heavy industry to Planned
Unit Development. The 240 acres
at 3013 CR 835 is to become the
site of an industrial and commer-
cial park.
-The board unanimously ap
proved an ordinance prohibiting
agriculture in areas zoned resi-
dential.
The commissioners approved
a resolution adopting the uniform
method of collecting non-ad va-
lorem special assessments for
Banyan Village water lines.
Property at 4795 and 4825
SR 80W was rezoned from resi-
dential/medium density mobile
home to Planned Unit Develop-
ment. It is to become a mixed-use
development.
The commissioners opened
the way for GreenTree South,


the agricultural worker housing
development on SR 29S, to ex-
pand by an additional 78 afford-
able housing units. The addition
will be on the south side of the
existing development. The 26
acre property was rezoned from
general agriculture to residential/
multifamily.

In other business:
The board passed an amend-
ment to its Capital Improvement
Element adopting a five-year fi-
nancially feasible schedule.
The board passed a resolu-
tion that will eventually provide
for use of the uniform method
of collecting ad valorem special
assessments for Banyan Village
water lines. The resolution will
allow assessments to be placed
on the annual tax bill. The assess-
ments are expected to begin Oct.
1,2009.
-Board members voted to ter
minate the hangar lease with He-
liplane Aircraft Corp. Internation-
al with a $50,000 buyout. Part of
that will be held for the resolution
of a third party damage claim.
The next regular county com-
mission meeting will be at the
Clewiston City Hall, 5 p.m. Tues-
day, Feb. 10.

Need answers
HORSESHOE ACRES ROADS: We as taxpayers and concerned resi-
dents that live in Horseshoe Acres in Glades county would like some
answers on why we cannot get anything done on our roads out here
after several complaints. These roads and right of ways are suppose to
county maintained but they have pot holes, sides of roads are all fall-
ing apart, along with the entrance to Horseshoe. A few years back they
put down tar and gravel but it's all coming up and in a lot of places is
down to the original dirt that was there to begin with.
Also, the little green carts go all up and down Hwy. 80 on both the
Hendry and Glades sides and pick up all the trash before the mowers
get there. Why can't they do the same here as -sorry to say- people
throw trash out in here like anywhere else and the mowers just mow
over top of everything and makes it look worse then to begin with.
We would like some answers on this matter. Thank You, Horseshoe
Acres Residents.

Unhappy with medical 'treatment'
WANTED: Family Doctor
Requirements: Must be able to schedule and KEEP appointments.
Must accept Blue Cross & Blue Shield PPO. Must accept timely cash
payments for any and all co-pays. Must be able to see me in a timely
manner during NORMAL HOURS.
If you are like so many of the doctors I have TRIED to see in this
town, you likely will not be accepted for the position. It is time that the
medical providers understand, that this is a buyers market. WE THE
PATIENTS ARE YOUR EMPLOYER. I am choosing to go elsewhere with
my insurance and money spent on health care in the City of LaBelle.

School layoffs
CUT BIG SALARIES: I have not wanted to get involved with these
horrendous layoffs across Hendry County Schools, but after reading
Mr. Langford's rendition of the truth I feel I must speak. There are
higher salaries that should be cut. There is a teacher who makes more
than four aids put together, and this teacher doesn't even teach the
academics. No cut happening here. Salaries should be made public
in this public school system. For instance, what is the salary of our
superintendent? Lee County's super makes over $150,000. Of course,
the big cats have contracts. Again, the poor lose out. Actually, I agree
with other letter that stated that it's the kids who lose out the most.
We have government waste everywhere. I hope our governor enjoyed
that trip to Europe on us. And we know our board members and con-
gress people aren't hurting any. But like you said sir, God knows where
our hearts really are.
Why don't we examine waste, real waste of our tax money? I don't
think that expensive textbooks will teach and guide our kids. If that
were the case then we all could be homeschooled. No, it's the tutors
that really give the one on one kids need. It's the aids. I see it every day.
Now, they won't be here, at least not enough of them to really make
a difference. Sorry kids. But here, here's a new textbook you can't
understand because it's above your reading level. But, hey, at $100 a
shot, you ought to get smarter just carrying it in your backpack. But
hurry please because we need some people with brains to get us out
of this mess.

NEED TO LOOK HARDER FOR SOLUTIONS: I do not doubt that
your vote, which helped approve the dismissal of 50 to 71 school
board employees, was the hardest vote you ever made. I'm glad to
hear that you believe them to be "good, honest, hard working citi-
zens." Thank you very much for your prayers.
You make an excellent point with the first verse of the second chap-
ter of Hebrews; the verse teaches that we ought to believe the Truth
and not drift away. The issue isn't whether or not HE will provide for
those in need. Instead, the issue is whether or not WE will provide for
those in need. What are WE willing to do for those in need?
Deuteronomy 15:7-11
If there be among you a poor man of one of THY brethren within
any of THY gates in THY land which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt NOT harden thine heart, nor SHUT thine hand from thy
poor brother: But thou shalt OPEN THINE HAND WIDE unto him,
and shalt surely LEND HIM SUFFICIENT FOR HIS NEED, that which
HE WANTETH.
Our faith in God and His people needs to stay strong, no matter if
the economy is good or bad. We could be the richest or poorest nation
on Earth, that's irrelevant. Though I also hope our economy strength-
ens soon, it can crash, as it has already done.
I agree that "[this economy will turn and we can put our people
back to work] if we work together in this community and if we stay
focused on what God would have us to do and the way He would
have us do it."
Like you, I believe that our economy will grow strong, IF we count
the cost APPROPRIATELY.
Luke 14:28
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first,
and counteth the cost whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Is the Hendry School Board distributing their funds fairly among
their employees? Should those who make more money take a de
crease in pay to help supply our teachers being cut? Are we truly help
ing our economy if we're cutting other teacher's incomes?
You brought up "judging others and looking at a speck in the eye
of others..." We shouldn't point fingers aimlessly. Fingers NEED to be
pointed to those in power who CAN CHANGE our circumstances.
John 7:24
Judge not according to the appearance, but JUDGE THE RIGH
TEOUS JUDGMENT.
We need to judge the right way to solve the "$5,000,000 short fall."
WE need to judge when WE really "know all the circumstances in
volved." The Word doesn't teach us NOT to judge; the Word teaches
us HOW to judge the right way, His way.
Matthew 7:3-5
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but
considerest not the beam
that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out
of thine eye; and,
behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou HYPOCRITE, FIRST CAST OUT the beam out of THINE own
eye; and THEN
shalt thou SEE CLEARLY to CAST OUT the mote out of thy brother's
eye.
Are WE being hypocrites by cutting off teacher incomes to support
our economy and schools? WE need to see clearly, first. WE need to
know all the facts and expand our financial options fully. WE need to
cast out the dismissal of teachers.
Teachers, aides, and paraprofessionals are already barely making
anything as it is. How much worse is it to cut "good, honest, hard
working" teachers off completely? Is that what God would have US
do? Is that the way He would have US do it?
Ps 41:1-3
Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him
in time of trouble.
The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be
blessed upon the earth:
and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou
wilt make all his bed in his sickness.


Letters to the Editor


School district
Dear Editor;
We are writing this letter joint-
ly to share our concern about the
future of Hendry County's chil-
dren. As you and the commu
nity well know, Hendry County
School District is laying off more
than 50 people who work di
rectly with students. This was a
heart wrenching decision that the
school board and superintendent
made; they fully realize not only
the impact on the children's lives,
but on the fragile economic state
of this county too.
These people have dedicated
themselves to helping students
achieve academic success and
better futures for themselves.
Not only will the instruction and
individual support be gone from
these children's lives, but also the
personal relationships that have
formed. Our young people at all
ages are vulnerable; they are feel-
ing the stress and strain of the
economic uncertainty in their per-
sonal lives. Now that uncertainty
has entered their classrooms.
Hendry County's children should
spend their school hours learn-
ing new skills, developing per-
sonal goals, forming friendships
and having fun. They should not
have to wonder who will be there
for them in the future. For many
young people today, school is the
most stable, consistent thing in
their lives; that stability has been
ruptured.
Economics and financial
problems are considered adult
problems, but the problems are
being thrust onto our children
by the harsh decisions that have
to be made. We adults are sup-
posed to protect and fight for our
young people, our future. Educa-
tors alone cannot do this, parents
alone cannot do this; it must be
the entire community lifting its
united voice to tell our elected of-
ficials at both state and national
level to protect our children. Tell
them to protect our children by
protecting their educations, by
protecting the stability of their
classrooms.
The Governor has made the


comment that he has not seen
the protestors fighting the cuts to
education. The educators are pro-
testing, but they are doing what
they do best first-educating chil-
dren. Please help us in this fight to
protect our children.
Sincerely,
Debbie Steelman
President, Hendry Educa-
tional Support Personnel As-
sociation
Tina R. Noel
President, Hendry County
Education Association

Tax stilumus
Regarding the $825 billion
stimulus bill, have no fear, Obama
will check it line for line and make
sure there is no pork, but what I
see is a bill that should be called
"Pork and Payback." Unions, trial
lawyers, Hollywood, abortionists,
environmentalists, etc.
Our failing automobile indus-
try is already under attack facing
stricter regulations and the voters
have now put the party respon-
sible for this mess in charge to fix
it.
I remember the Democrats
saying all who wish to own a
home have the right to do so,
regardless of their qualifications.
This has led to the debacle we're
in now, Fanny May, Freddy Mack,
banks, insurers, mortgage bro-
kers, housing industry and jobs
have all went south and "heads
should roll." The Republicans
took no stand for fear of being
called racists.
Cal Roemer

I shoulda, I coulda
One of the many hazards of
putting your thoughts out into the
arena of public opinion is being
able to handle the resultant criti-
cisms that inevitably result. Since
no one likes to be criticized, I
learned a long time ago that no
matter the intent of criticism,
there truly is no such thing as
"constructive" criticism, regard-
less of the matter, being subjected
to the criticism. Take the current
furor raging over what has been


advertised as a "Economic Stimu-
lus Plan"(Supplemental), when it
is nothing but a "Spending Plan."
Suffering from public approval
ratings in the single digits and be-
ing referred to, in some circles as
the House of I11 Repute, the House
of Representatives, after hear
ing Obama's Chief of Staff state,
"Never let a crisis go to waste",
rushed into session and rubber-
stamped out the Supplemental
Plan. After so many years of frus
tration in getting their spending
plans approved and being the mi-
nority party in the Congress, with
the election of Obama, all those
pent-up frustrations flew out of
the House of Representatives like
a "Pelosi Pig" in "season." Now,
in the light of day, with due dili-
gence and consideration, the U.S.
Senate has the bill and we will
see what the future holds for the
debtors, sometime referred to as
the "wage earning taxpayers."
Following all the euphoria that
accompanied and dictated the
election of Obama, the national
media, now finds themselves like
a "paper tiger", all snarl and no
teeth. With no "Bush" to bash,
they are left with only their candi-
date to feed upon. Somewhere in
history it is written, "That as you
vote, so shall you reap." So with
a candidate, "So cool that even a
Chicago snowflake wouldn't melt
in his mouth" now in full control
of the executive office and both
houses of Congress, the media
finds themselves in a position
to "either fish or cut bait." As if
the state of the economy wasn't
enough of a problem, Obama
today, had to take responsibility
for having two of his top cabinet
picks withdraw, and ended up
saying, "I shoulda, I coulda--------."
Kinda like what the Arizona Car-
dinals have been saying since last
Sunday night's loss in the Super
Bowl. With the Congress continu
ing to ignore the stated "will" of
the people and attending to our
"needs," I am convinced that not
only "don't they get it", but they
have chosen not to accept the dif
ference between sympathy and
empathy. I learned a long time
ago that you can confuse the use


of sympathy where empathy is
really what should be used. Sev-
eral years ago, one of my advis-
ers explained it to me one day by
telling me a story about his being
on a Caribbean cruise. It occurred
one beautiful early morning as he
was taking a brisk walk on deck
when he spotted a man in obvi-
ous distress, violently sea-sick,
heaving over the rail. He said you
could be sympathetic and walk
on by, feeling sorry for the man,
but if you stopped and joined him
at the rail, that was being empa-
thetic. In today's world, to make
it even worse, whens the last
time you felt, even sincere, factual
sympathy coming from the White
House or Congress, let alone em-
pathy? Right or wrong. subject to
criticism, I am convinced that un-
til our elected representatives cor-
rect their Myopia-tic visions, and
come down off of their "power
perches", and join us at the rail,
to satisfy their constituents, bet-
ter known as "wage earning tax
payers" needs, they will legislate
us into total Government control
of all businesses and services
through, first Nationalization and
then Socialism. Hopefully I'm not
going to be guilty of violating my
"I Shoulda------Coulda" message,
So here is, in real time, what I see
happening if we don't get a "true"
Supplemental Bill passed. It oc
curs to me that Cuba is a good
example of where we could be if
we keep heading towards think
ing that the government can pro-
vide for our every need. So let's
get it clear in our heads, "WHAT
and WHO is the government?"
Just what does the government
produce, plant, and harvest and
sell to earn the money that they
so freely give to those who "Coul-
da-----"Shoulda"----, but do not
produce and contribute to the
productivity of the country. Don't
ever forget where the money
comes from! The "wage earning
taxpayers." So beware! If every
one is in the same Government
wagon, there will be no one left
to pull it.

Faith in the Marketplace


Anger is a cancer which spreads throughout a person's life


By Fr. Alan Kelmereit
When I grew up, my aunt and
uncle had a strange pair of neigh-
bors. Theywere a married couple,
up in years. Now, I was eight or
nine at the time, so "up in years"
may have been the sixties or so. I
have since learned better! In any
case, this couple had apparently
had a stormy marriage, with fre
quent fights. They had come to
an understanding, however: they
would simply never speak to each
other again. They each had their
own half of the house, indeed,
they had painted a line on the floor
to eliminate trespassing. I don't
know how they managed to carry
on daily life inside the house, but
if my aunt or uncle were outside,
the received frequent requests to,
"Please tell my wife...this or that"
or "Please tell my husband...that
or the other thing." Socially and
economically divorce was not an


option, so they
lived each day
in their self im
posed prison of
silence, persis-
tently refusing to
forgive each oth
er for whatever
offense began
Fr. Alan the stalemate.
Kelmereit This story
might seem
funny or silly at first reading, but
it really isn't. It is an overwhelm-
ingly sad story of two people
whose immense unhappiness
regularly spilled over into their
neighbors lives. Over the years
I've met many other people who
lived lives of unhappiness, not to
that extreme, but unhappy none
theless, because they refused to
forgive real or imaginary hurts.
I've seen families divided, friends
lost, people isolated because they
preferred to nurse their anger


rather than let it go. I do not know
one single person whose life was
made better by holding onto an
ger, and I do not know a single
person who ever regretted having
forgiven someone else.
There is a limitless supply of
reasons people produce for re
fusing to forgive, often claiming
that they "can't," as if some out-
side force was in control of their
minds and emotions. That kind of
persistent anger is a cancer which
spreads throughout a person's
life, destroying as it goes. The sad
thing is that there is a readily avail-
able cure forgive. It may seem
difficult at first, but as with many
difficult things it gets easier with
practice. Skeptical? Try it. Call to
mind someone who has offended
or hurt you in some way. Remem-
ber the offense if you still can.
Then say, "I will no longer let an-
ger over this offense have control
in my life. I forgive (name) and


put this out of my mind forever."
Don't be surprised when the
memory pops back up, but each
time it does, remind yourself that
you have forgiven, put it away,
and that it is no longer a part of
your life. It will go away, and you
will feel relief.
If you want to know more
about forgiving, Carlson Memo-
rial United Methodist Church is
hosting the "Forgive to Live" com-
munity workshop on Saturday,
March 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Call the church office at 863-
675-0656 for information and res-
ervations. Think what might hap-
pen in LaBelle if we all began to
forgive each other!

By Brenda Barnes
Why is it that bacteria all seem
to have strange names? You may
wonder where these names come
from. Legionnaires' Disease is
caused by a type of bacteria called
Legionella. It's a type of pneumo
nia (lung infection). The name
originated in 1976 when a group
of people in Philadelphia went
to an American Legion conven-
tion at hotel and within a couple
of days over 200 people became
sick. The bacteria was traced to
the hotel's cooling towers for the
air conditioning system. The pre-
viously unknown bacteria was
identified and named Legionella
because of the Legion members
who had gotten sick, so it is now
known as Legionnaires' disease.
Even though Legionella bacteria
are found naturally in the environ-
ment, the bacteria usually grows
in warm waters like the water in
a hot tub, a whirlpool spa, part of
certain air conditioning systems,
hot water tanks, large plumb
ing systems and cooling towers.
People get Legionnaires' disease
when they breathe in the vapors
or mists that have been con
taminated with the bacteria. So
when you're on vacation some
where, before dipping your toes
into the hot tub or spa, check it
closely and make sure it's clean!
Don't be afraid to ask hotel staff
how often the unit is cleaned or
how they disinfect their system.


One thing to re
member is that
this bacteria is
not spread from
one person to
another. Symp-
toms are similar
to other types of
pneumonia, so
Brenda it may be hard to
Barnes diagnose at first.
Symptoms can
include high fever, chills, cough,
muscle aches and headaches and
usually start from 2 to 14 days af-
ter being exposed. Some healthy
people never show any symp-
toms at all and their body takes
care of itself. Some people are at
higher risk of getting sick from the
bacteria. These are usually older
people (over 65), smokers, peo-
ple with chronic lung diseases, or
people with weak immune sys-
tems. Most cases can be treated
with antibiotics, but your health
care provider would need to com-
plete some testing to diagnose
your symptoms before a treat-
ment plan can be determined.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!

ning Consultant for the Hendry

Pandillas
Hubo un tiroteo en Clewiston
el viernes pasado. Las sefiales
de actividades de pandillas son
evidentes en la comunidad. El
desacuerdo entre los pandilleros
ha estado causando dafios a los
residentes que nada tienen que
ver con el conflicto.
En las calles y los edificios se
nota los mensajes que las pandil
las escriben, con su presencia los
grupos de criminales no tiene otra
cosa mejor que hacer que marcar
su territorio.
El Sargento Justin Spence de
La Policia de Clewiston no se
extrafia de esto. El fue uno de
los oficiales que respondi6 a la
lamada del tiroteo ocurrido en
Twin Lakes, Clewiston. El dijo:
"Nosotros tenemos un problema
grande con las pandillas en esta
area"."Es un problema violento
que estA destruyendo la juven-
tud". "Nosotros estamos mirando
mas actividades de reclutamiento
y organizaci6n pandillera, estos
individuos son una organizaci6n
corrupta que se ecuentran afu
era para demostrar que ellos son
violentos y capaces de cometer
actos criminales".
El Sargento Spence es el di-
rector de Fuerza de Censurar las
pandillas, con un consejo admin
istrativo que se ha encargado de
separar grupos pandilleros en los
Condados Carlota, Mantee y Lee.
El grupo tuvo su primera reuni6n
al principio del mes para iden-
tificar las areas especificas que
seran las mas vigiladas durante lo
pr6ximos meses para decidir las
acciones que se tomaran.
Los individuos involucrados en
actividades criminales serin en-
carcelados pero se le va a pedir
a las escuelas mas cooperaci6n
para identificar los miembros de
pandillas. El comisionado Turner
dijo: "Yo he oido a algunos adul-
tos de nuestra comunidad decir:
"La juventud no tiene ningOn en-
tretenimiento aquf". Pero eso no
es cierto tenemos futbol america-
no, pista para corer, futbol y mu-
chos programas para los mucha-
chos. Turner dijo que entre mas
gente se involucre con las activi-
dades de los muchachos sera mas
facil recuperar a aquellos que han
perdido el buen camino.
De acuerdo con el Sargento
Spencer es bien dificil erradicar el
problema de las pandillas porque
es como hereditario por gen-
eraciones por ejemplo cuando
el abuelo ha sido pandillero tam-
bidn lo es el hijo y el nieto. Una de


las medidas que se piensan tomar
es poner un toque de queda lo
que significa que los muchachos
menores de 18 afios no pueden
andar en la calle despu6s de las
10-11 de la noche. "Con la asis-
tencia de la comunidad yo siento
que
podemos recuperarla de nue-
vo". "Yo pienso que tenemos un
problema de pandillas en el con-
dado Hendry".

Bronco girls undefeated again! Sports Shorts


The LaBelle Middle School
Broncos basketball team has
done something that has not hap-
pened before, back to back unde-
feated basketball teams.
This team, consisting of 6 re-
turners from last year, once again,
worked hard to accomplish this
feat. It was a memorable season
with close games against Clewis
ton and St. Ann's of Naples, which


proved strong character and per-
sistence existed on the squad.
Returning to do this "back to
back" was Michelle Gielow, Jesse
Whitman, Whitley Byrd, Andrea
Lutkenhaus, Abbie O'Ferrell and
Kayla Keller. Of this team, ten of
the players are 8th graders, and
will move to the high school,
where they can carry their skills
and team play to the next level.


The team, coached again by
Kevin Lutkenhaus, and assisted
by Bonnie Feickert, played well
together, and was a joy to be
with. Thanks to all of our spon-
sors this year who helped with
halftime contests including Gulf-
coast Products Incorporated and
McDonald's of LaBelle.

our 140 pounder, did just that by
pinning the competition to the
mat in short order. Sam Linde-
berg of Estero went down in just
.29 seconds putting DJ into the
finals for 1st and 2nd against Jor
dan Williams of South Ft Myers.
For 45 min, DJ prepared himself
for the upcoming bout.
DJ scored two quick take-
downs in the first 2:00 minute pe
riod making the score DJ 4 -Wil-
liams 1. To start the second period
Williams elected to start from
the neutral position (standing)
which proved to seal his fate, 10
seconds into the 2nd period DJ's
double leg take down took Wil-
liams straight to his back where
the referee blew the whistle slap-
ping the mat signifying fall by pin,
making DJ the District Champion
in his weight class.
Wrestlers who placeed in the
top four and earned the right to
advance to the Regional Tourna-
ment are 119 lb. weight class Pe-
dro Deras 4th place, 152 lb. Chris
Timms 3rd place, 145 lb. Timmy
Fromm 4th place, 160 lb. Kane
Owens 3rd place, 171 lb. Sha-
mus Samerdyke 4th place, 189
lb. Armando Ayala 4th place, and
heavy weight division Sammy En-
riquez 4th place.
CoachAyala said, "We brought
12 wrestlers to the district meet
and we are taking eight of them
on to regionals next week where
the competition gets tougher, I
hope to take three or four to the
State level tournament. That is not
an easy task, there are over 100
schools in the Class A Wrestling,
which means you have to be in
the top 16 just to step on the mat
a the State Championship Tourna
ment in Lakeland Feb 20-21. The
boys wrestled and looked sharper
this week, maybe it was the new
hooded warm-ups. Thanks to
Mark Henderson with Everglades
Farm Equipment's sponsorship
they looked like and performed
as a team finishing with 105 team
points."
