The theme of this years SCF was seen all over even at the Rotary's Armadillo Races
where young Amy Higginbotham jumped right in and helped. The proceeds from the
annual races went to several different causes like schalorships, the Nature Park, the
new Veteran's Park and Polo Projects, just to name a few.

Special to the Caloosa Belle
If you missed this year's
Swamp Cabbage Queen and
Princess Pageant, you can start
kicking yourself now! The ten
young ladies who competed
this year kept those in atten-
dance thoroughly entertained,
enthralled and captivated.
From their speeches and cos-
tumes about their family's heri-
tages, talent presentation, eve
ning gown and new onstage
interviews the entertainment
produced by the contestants
wowed everyone in the audi-
ence. The opening dance num-
ber to Alan Jackson's "Good
Time" was a most spectacular


way to start the 2009 Swamp

Ashley even got Phil Pelletier
into the act when she drug
him up to dance with the con-
testants. Phil was a great sport
and danced along and had ev-
eryone entertained.
This year's Swamp Cabbage
Queen Daphne Glisson is the
daughter of Kenny and Lori Glis-
son and a 2008 Graduate of La-
Belle High School. She attends
Southeastern University where
she is a Junior working on her
bachelors degrees in Religion
and Psychology. Daphne also
stole the show as she took the
most talented trophy with her
awesome tumbling and dance


routine to a medley including
"The Way You Make Me Feel"
. Kaylynn "KK" Cash was cho-
sen as first runner up and also
earned the top interview and
photogenic awards. She sang
"That's Who I Am" for her tal-
ent honoring her grandmother
Donna Chapman with her own
version of the song. The sec-
ond-runner up was Callie Bur
ley who was so graceful as she
performed American Sign Lan
guage to Mandy Moore's "Only

Three die in



shooting


Deputies: Man may
have shot 2 women
and then himself

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
LABELLE -- A Friday shot-
ting in LaBelle left three people
dead in what investigators are
calling a double shooting and
suicide.
The incident left all three
involved dead: 44 year-old Gil
berto Fernandez. 32-year-old
Madai Rodriguez and 26-year-
old Maria Perez.
Investigators want to know
why a normally reserved, quiet
LaBelle man would -- based on
what they know so far -- shoot
two women and then himself.
In a press release prepared
by the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office, Lt. Susan Harrelle re-
ported officers responding to a
possible shots fired call at 963
Citrus Ave., shortly after 8 p.m.
on Feb. 20.
Deputies found three per-
sons inside the mobile home
with gunshot wounds. Emer-
gency Response workers deter
mined two of them were dead,
while a third was in serious
condition.
Maria Perez, was still alive
when she was airlifted to Lee
Memorial Hospital for treat-
ment of her injuries. Accord-


ing to the sheriff's office, a few
days later, Maria died.
Both women were report-
edly from Lehigh Acres.
Law enforcement officials
have released very little infor-
mation regarding the case.
"There's nothing else I can
say, except that at this time we
are waiting for autopsy results,"
said Lt. Harrelle.
A routine check of the sus-
pect's criminal record with
sheriff's office revealed only a
single arrest in 2000 for driving
under the influence of alcohol,
Lt. Harrelle reported.
Meanwhile, Gilberto Fer-
nandez's neighbors expressed
shock.
On Monday, the home was
vacant, with little sign of the
man's wife or his son, neigh-
bors said. The door to the
porch was locked, and an A&E
repair van, a car and a small
pick up truck were parked in
the driveway.
"All I know is that they were
very quiet," said a next-door
neighbor in Spanish. "It was all
a surprise." The ten-year resi-
dent of the neighborhood said
the family moved in shortly
after she did, but were always
a tranquil family. They kept to
themselves, she said.

Reduction forces
tough decisions

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A discus-
sion on the subject of a lease
renewal assumed much larger
dimensions when the conver-
sation shifted to the state of the
county, and the financial chal-
lenges it faces in the next year.
Along with dealing with the
issue of where to locate several
important offices, the county
is also tackling the possibility
that there may be a reduction
in some services, and even of
staff should the financial cli-
mate continue the way it has in
recent months.
At the onset, commissioners


considered renewing the leases
of several offices at the Clewis-
ton Towne Center (formerly the
K-Mart Plaza) in Clewiston. The
plaza has housed the sheriff's
office, clerk, tax collector, prop-
erty appraiser and the supervi-
sor of elections, but is up for
renewal.
The clerk and the property
appraiser have given commit-
ments to the county attorney to
move out of their offices at the
plaza and into a satellite office
on El Paso. It is expected that
the supervisor of elections will
do the same.
With three out of the five
leaving, the county attorney
said the landlord decided to
increase rent for the sheriff's
office, and has asked the tax

contestants Amalya Mitchell and
Mariel Dunham also did equally
well and their talents were spec-
tacular. Mariel not only sang but
danced and twirled baton to "Al-
exander's Rag Time Band" and
Amalya performed an original
flag and ribbon routine to Chris
Brow's "Fallen Angel".
The newly crowned Swamp
Cabbage Princess Olivia Luckey
won not only the title but also
the talent trophy and also the top
interview award. Her rendition of

audience from beginning to end.

Dual second runners up this year
were Alexas Caputo and Brett

a hip hop dance to "Movin" and
had the audience grooving" to the

Black belt Alexas shocked the au-
dience when she not only broke
through several boards with her
tiny hands but also demolished a
brick as well. Tony Tolar and Al-

viding a public restroom -- which
would be an additional charge for
the county.
Commissioners did not appre-
ciate the terms.
"With all of the rental spaces
that are available in Clewiston,
you would certainly expect that
we would be able to get some
leases that are favorable," argued
Commissioner Tris Chapman. "I
think we draw a line in the sand
here."
The discussion brought back
the issue of rehabilitating the
Clewiston sub-office and moving
a number of the constitutional of-
ficers to that location.
"Does anybody not notice the
irony here?" asked Commissioner
Karson Turner. "We're renting
and spending $169,000 a year
and we have an 8,750 square foot
structure, ready to be refurbished,
and we're not gonna do anything
with it?"
Commissioner Turner said the
county's money is better spent on
addressing the code issues at the
sub-office. He expressed frustra
tion with how that project has sat
stagnant.

Jorge Cruz, another of the sus-

"Mostly, he was very reserved,"

all the leases could alleviate some
financial burden the county is un-
der, the commissioner said.
"We're broke," said Commis-
sioner Turner, who pledged on
"Educating the public on the east
side that this is the reality of the
times that we're in. We're going
to have to even lose some more
services. We know we haven't
had court on the east side of the
county for three years now. We
may not ever get court back on
the east side of the county.
"It's gonna get way worse be-
fore it gets better," Commissioner
Turner said.
Commissioner Chapman
agreed.
"We've got some difficult deci-
sions to make in our budgeting
process and we're right around
the corner," said Commissioner
Chapman. "Some of those tough
decisions could require some per-
sonnel adjustments. I'm reluctant
to sign up for a one-year lease at
a facility where we're not at all
sure what our headcount is going
to be. We have some tough times
coming up here."

ed the attorney to negotiate bet-

OLD TIMERS DINNER: On Thursday, Feb. 20, my husband and
myself were "first timers" at the "Old Timers Dinner" sponsored by the
Heritage Museum held at the Civic Center. What a wonderful evening
it was! Since everyone stays so busy these days it was a great way
to reconnect with friends, classmates and neighbors. The food was
great and plentiful, yummy desserts too! Be sure to put this event on
your calendar next year! This includes members of the SCF committee
and elected officials that was not in attendance. Museum members,
thanks for your hard work and an enjoyable evening!

Relay for Life Yard Sale
Thank you to all the Curves
members who donated goods for
the Relay for Life Yard Sale held
at Curves of LaBelle on Saturday,
Feb. 7, it was a resounding suc-
cess. Thank you also to those
folks who bought items.
The Curves Exercise Divas
Team could not have done this
without the support of our com-
munity and our members. We
raised over $800 for the American
Cancer Society to use in their ef-
forts to find a cure and provide


patient services to people touched
by cancer in our community. But
we are not done yet, the Relay
Event is not until March 21, 2009
and we will continue to work to-
wards raising money to fund the
programs and services the Ameri-
can Cancer Society provides to
people with cancer. None of this
would be possible without the
enthusiasm, commitment and tal-
ent of generous Relay participants
and patrons. Go Relay!

IN Lilli Iir l a Lit l rlsIUIuII reI-view


By The Rev Alan
Kelmereit
Church of the Good Shepherd
Here it is, almost the begin-
ning of March. Two months have
passed, nearly, and perhaps this
is a good time for a little review.
Do you remember, at the begin
ning of January, I wrote about the
possibility of making New Year's
resolutions along the lines of
character improvement? Integrity,
honesty, that sort of stuff. What's
thatyou're saying? You don't want
to be reminded of resolutions al-
ready forgotten and abandoned. I
understand, but here we go any-
way.
First, you're not the only per-
son who has ever broken a reso
lution. In fact, New Year's resolu-
tions are better known for being
broken than kept. Think how
many jokes you've heard about


breaking resolu-
tions. This may
not be the very
best company to
be in, but there
is certainly lots
of it.
One of the
very nice things
Fr. Alan about broken
Kelmereit resolutions is
that they can
be patched up and started over.
So, you blew a month or two.
That's really not such a big deal.
The months that count are the
months coming, the ones that are
available for you to work on keep-
ing your resolutions.
While you're at it, fixing up all
those lost resolutions, why not
make a few new ones? I wrote in
January of resolutions regarding
how you treat other people. This
would be a great time to think up


Redeeming the day...


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
When was the last time you
had a tough day? Last month?
Last week? Yesterday? Maybe to-
day?
Well here is some good news
... we all have them. Rich. Poor.
Well-groomed. Not-so well
groomed. Chief. Baker. Candle
stick maker. No exceptions.
The bad news is thi ... we all
have them!
Here's how you can tell when
it's going to be a rotten day:
You wake up face down on the
pavement. You call Suicide Pre-
vention and they put you on hold.
You see a "60 Minutes" news
team waiting in your office. Your
birthday cake collapses from the
weight of the candles. You turn
on the news and they're show-
ing emergency routes out of the
city. Your twin sister forgot your
birthday. Your car horn goes off
accidentally and remains stuck
as you follow a group of Hell's
Angels on the freeway. Your boss
tells you not to bother to take off
your coat. The bird singing out-
side your window is a buzzard.
You wake up and your braces
are locked together. You call your
answering service and they tell


Les
Morgan


you it's none of
your business.
Your income tax
check bounces.
You put both
contact lenses
in the same eye.
Your wife says,
"Good morning,
Bill", and your
name is George.
So what do


we do? Since we all have tough
days, even rotten days, what is
the formula for getting through
the malaise?
First, it is essential to watch
out for selfishness. On the rotten
days, we tend to operate from a,
"No one is looking out-for me so
I'd better do it" mentality.
You may have heard the story
of two friends who met for dinner
in a restaurant. Each requested
filet of sole, and after a few min-
utes the waiter came back with
their order. Two pieces of fish, a
large and a small, were on the
same platter. One of the men pro-
ceeded to serve his friend. Plac-
ing the small piece on a plate, he
handed it across the table. "Well,
you certainly do have nerve!" ex-
claimed his friend.
"What's troubling you?" asked
the other. "Look what you've


some resolutions about how you
treat yourself. There's a great list
of possibilities in regard to liv-
ing a healthier lifestyle. But, I'm
thinking more of your treatment
of your inner self. When you look
at yourself in the mirror, are you
really content with who you are,
inside?
Why not resolve to take the
next 40 days, Lent (remember
that?), to do some serious self
examination? Are you the kind
of person you want to be? When
others offend you, do you have a
forgiving spirit, or are you more
inclined to work on getting even?
Revenge isn't as satisfying as it
seems, and the people I've known
who always wanted to get even
for something were not happy
people. What about the way you
treat other people? I've known
many people who treat their
friends and other people who are


like themselves very nicely, but
who treat those who are different
with disdain, or even hostility. Is
there need for a resolution in that
part of your life?
The Golden Rule, treat others
as you would like to be treated, is
golden for a reason. It can dras
tically improve your life. It's not
as easy as it may sound, but it is
definitely worth the effort. People
will respond to you much more
positively. And there's another
great benefit: you will feel better
about who you are and what you
are doing in this world.

Even when it is rotten


done," he answered. "You've giv-
en me the little piece and kept the
big one for yourself."
"How would you have done
it?" the man asked. His friend re-
plied, "If I were serving, I would
have given you the big piece."
"Well," replied the man, "I've
got it, haven't I?"
Second, when the brutal days
seem to be coming more than
the relief times, be aware that
self-defeat can slip in. The result
is always destructive.
Back in the early 1930s, C.D.
"Bigboy" Blalock of Louisiana
State University-a six-foot-six
inch giant of a boxer -was taking
on a stocky fellow from Missis-
sippi State. In the second round,
Bigboy let lose a roundhouse.
The Mississippi man stepped in,
and his head caught Bigboy's
arm inside the elbow. With the
opponent's head acting as a lever,
Bigboy's arm whipped around in
almost full circle, connecting with
haymaker force on Bigboy's own
chin. He staggered, grabbed the
rope, walked almost all the way
around the ring, and then fell flat
for the count -- the only prizefight-
er who ever knocked himself out
with a right to his own jaw.
Third, walk in proper self-
esteem. If we believe we are


destroyed, and defeated, that is
exactly how we will operate our
lives. However, the opposite is
also true. If we stand firm in the
fact that God has made us, and
we are of value to Him, the differ-
ence will be astonishing.
At the Pan American Games,
Greg Louganis was asked how
he coped with the stress of in-
ternational diving competition.
He replied that he climbs to the
board, takes a deep breath, and
thinks, "Even if I blow this dive,
my mother will still love me."
Then he goes for excellence. At
the beginning of each day, how
good it would be for each of us
to take a deep breath, say, "Even
if I blow this dive, my mother will
still love me", and then, assured
of grace, go into the day seeking
a perfect 10!
What is true of a mother's
love is even more pronounced
in the Father's love your Father
in heaven. He is greater, stronger,
and is able to redeem us through
any day including the rotten
days. Look to Him!

Guest Commentary


Walking: The long and short of better health


By Patricia Dobbins,
RN.,/H.S.A.
Administrator, Hendry/Glades
County Health Dept.
Some people may wonder if
it's better to walk a long distance
at a slow pace or a short distance
at a fast pace. Well, studies have
shown that no matter the distance
or the pace, "hoofing it" adds so
many health benefits. So, it's bet-
ter to walk some, than nothing at
all! To burn the most calories how-
ever, (from every minute that you


are squeezing
out of you busy
schedule) you
should walk
very briskly.
Speedy walking
can help your
heart and lungs
to become
Patricia stronger. A new
Dobbins study by the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) found that brisk
walking on a regular basis can
also lengthen the lives of people


who have diabetes. Some people
may also wonder if walking in the
morning is better than walking
at night. Well, a calorie burned,
is a calorie burned, whether it's
morning or night. The important
thing is to choose a time that fits
best with your schedule so that
you are more likely to stick with
it. No matter how young or how
old you are, walking is one of the
easiest things we can do for our
bodies. Grab a friend, your chil-
dren or your pet and "hit the pave-
ment." Turn it into an adventure,


and you'll have some fun while
becoming healthier. Walking can
help build and maintain healthy
bones, muscles and joints, and
reduce the risk of coronary heart
disease, high blood pressure, and
diabetes. It can also help reduce
symptoms of anxiety and de
pression and help to control the
swelling and pain from arthritis.
Walking can also help to control
weight, build lean muscle and re-
duce fat. So, get out there and get
moving!

Chubby babies are cute, but are they healthy?


By Patricia Dobbins,
RN.,/H.SA.
Administrator, Hendry/Glades
County Health Dept.
Obesity (being overweight)
has become a major public health
concern for all ages. Believe it or
not, the problems actually start
while you are a baby. People may
say, "Oh what a cute chubby lit-
tle baby," but did you know that
overweight babies usually grow
up to be overweight adults? Obe-
sity has been linked to diabetes,
heart disease and some cancers.


It may be sur-
prising, but even
six month old
babies can show
evidence of dia-
betes and high
cholesterol. It's
so easy to stick a
bottle in a crying
Patricia baby's mouth,
Dobbins but sometimes
it may not be hunger that's caus-
ing the crying and you are just
training your baby to eat some-
thing when they are upset. Babies
usually eat every three hours or


so, and they can even recognize
when they are full, so don't try to
force your little one to, "finish the
bottle" if they don't seem to want
to continue eating.
Babies can develop a "sweet
tooth" at an early age. Once
your baby is big enough to eat
baby foods, start them on some
healthy vegetable types, because
once the sweet stuff touches their
lips, you'll be forever trying to get
them to eat their peas and green
beans! Once you start giving them
100 percent fruit juice, give them
no more than 6 ounces a day. Fruit


juices have lots of extra sugar and
extra sugar means extra calories.
So, if someone tells you that
you have a "cute chubby baby,"
you may want to talk to your
healthcare provider to make sure
that you are not over feeding your
baby. Healthy babies can grow
into healthy adults.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!

Consumers urged to take proper tax deductions


TALLAHASSEE-With the April
15, income tax filing deadline just
around the corner, people are
likely gathering their tax docu-
ments and scheduling an appoint-
ment with their tax professional
to have their tax return complet-
ed. As consumers prepare for this
process, the Florida Association
of Mortgage Brokers (FAMB) en-
courages everyone to make sure
they take all mortgage-related
deductions they are entitled to for
their principal residence, such as
interest paid on a current mort-
gage.
"This is a good opportunity
for consumers to maximize the
amount of money they receive
back from the state and federal
government as well as minimize
the amount they have to pay," said
Valerie Saunders, President of the
FAMB. "The FAMB encourages
consumers to talk with their tax


professional about how to take
advantage of these deductions as
tax laws can be confusing."
Additionally, the FAMB recom-
mends that consumers consider
the following tax tips:
If you have refinanced or
sold your home within calendar
year 2008, bring your settlement
statement to your tax professional
to make sure you are taking all
of the deductions possible. You
can also deduct points on closing
costs for the year the home was
purchased.
Private Mortgage Insurance
(PMI) is tax deductible for con-
sumers whose personal adjusted
gross income is $100,000 or less
per year. Speak with your tax pro-
fessional to see if you qualify for
this deduction.
Real estate taxes that you
paid and property taxes are de-
ductible.


A first-time homebuyer's
tax credit is available until Dec.
1, 2009 for new home owners
who qualify. "Green" additions
to your home, such as energy-ef-
ficient appliances, are tax deduc-
ible according to the new eco-
nomic stimulus package signed
by President Obama.
If you have recently refi-
nanced, make sure to take appro-
priate credit for interest paid to
your previous lender.
If you are using part of your
home for a business office, bring
the total square footage of your
home and the square footage you
are using for the office, as well as
your expenses including insur-
ance so that you can discuss with
your tax professional the best
treatment for taxes.
If you have made home im-
provements, keep your receipts.
Even though they might not be


tax deductible they can be used
to reduce your taxable gain when
you eventually sell your home.
If you have to make perma
nent improvements to your home
because of a medical condition
(prescribed in writing by your
doctor), such as installing air-
conditioning or handicap ramps,
these expenses may be partially
deductible.
If you have moved more
than 50 miles away, you can de-
duct the cost of moving yourself,
household goods and vehicles to
your new home.
Use the 1098 interest form
for the mortgage interest paid on
an annual basis.

find a mortgage broker in your
area, visit the consumer informa-
tion page on the FAMB web site at

Mary M. Dunlap
LABELLE Mary M. Dunlap,
passed away Saturday, Feb. 14,
2009.
She was born in Delaware and
moved to Miami in 1921, with her
mother and father, Anne R. and
John C. Miller, two sisters and three
brothers.
A graduate of Miami High School,
she worked for the First National
Bank of Miami, which evolved into
Southeast Bank, and for Southern
Bell Telephone Company During
World War II, she was a civilian em-
ployee of the U.S. Signal Corps.
It was during her tenure at the First
National Bank that she met Tully F.
Dunlap. They were married in the


Coral Gables Methodist Church on
July 30,1939.
They met during the Great Depres-
sion when salaries were low and
times were tough. "I joined the bank
in 1935 and was earning $50.00 a
month," Dunlap recalled. "Mary
came to work in 1937 at $60.00 a
month. We got engaged in 1938 and
were married in 1939".
In his first banking job, Tully was a
"runner", a "messenger, odd jobs
man" and Mary was a stenographer.
Some of their experiences would
raise eyebrows of today's bank em
ployees. "Before we could marry,"
Dunlap said, "we had to get permis-
sion from the bank president, Ed-
ward C. Romfh. A bank employee
could not borrow money without
first getting the approval of Mr.
Romfh."
Over time, Tully Dunlap's banking
career flourished. He headed three
small banks in the Miami area,
merged them into the state-wide
Sun Banks, and became chairman
of that banks holding company be-
fore moving into other top posts
with banking institutions on the
Florida west coast.
In retirement, Mary and Tully set
tied in LaBelle, where Mary was ac-
tive in the Chamber of Commerce
and the American Legion Auxiliary.
They also owned a condominium in
Coral Gables and maintained close
ties with friends and business inter-
ests in the Miami area.
Throughout her life, Mary was ac-
tive in a wide variety of community
and church organizations. She was a
Girl Scout leader, a volunteer worker
at hospitals in Coral Gables and
Winter Park, and a member of the
Riviera Country Club and the Centu
ry Club in Coral Gables.
In addition to her husband, she is
survived by a son, Robert F. Dunlap,
a Miami attorney; a daughter, Mary
D. Peacock, a school teacher in Win-
ter Haven; son-in-law, Lawrence
Peacock, a school teacher in Winter
Haven; and four grandchildren, Rob-
ert Tully Dunlap, Lauren Mary Dun-
lap, Jake Franklin Peacock, and
Jennifer Elizabeth Peacock.
Her husband said, "When I re-
turned from service in World War II,
I asked Mary to quit her job, to stay
home and be a full-time wife and
later a full-time mother. She did that
and did it well. Mary was a kind,
considerate, generous and gracious
lady, a devoted wife, a loving mother
and a proud grandmother. She has
been my motivation and inspira-
tion."
Services will be 10:30 a.m. Satur-
day, Feb. 28, 2009 at the Carlson Me-
morial United Methodist Church,
310 Campbell Street, LaBelle.
Private burial service will be at
Woodlawn Mausoleum (North).
In lieu of flowers, donations may
be made to Carlson Memorial Unit-
ed Methodist Church, 310 Campbell
Street, LaBelle, FL 33935.
