Relay for Life: Fun with a purpose


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Contests like this one one contestant got whipped cream in the face while his partner
tossed Cocoa Puffs, trying to make as many as possible stick to the gooey mess, were
part of the fun Saturday, March 21, at LaBelle's Relay for Life. The annual event raises
money for cancer research and help for patients.

changes


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The world seems to be get
ting more complicated all the
time. Since 9/11, Americans
have been making many ad
justments as the world situa
tion hits closer to home.
It is the job of Homeland
Security to make our lives safer,
but that often requires added
layers of documentation.
Getting or renewing a Flor
ida driver's licens ise is one of
those everyday activities that is
becoming more complicated.
Sally Brown has been the su
pervisor at the Driver's License
Division in LaBelle for 21 years.
She understands that these
new rules are not popular, but
it is the law -which is designed
to help keep us all safer.
Now a proof of your resi
dential address and of your
social security number is re
quired when you appear at the
Division of Motor Vehicles for a
license. This includes many dif
ferent documents and is quite
easy to do. Proof of residential
address includes one of the fol
lowing:
1. Deed, mortgage, monthly
mortgage statement, mortgage
payment booklet or residential
rental/lease agreement
2. Florida voter registration
card
3. Florida vehicle registra


tion or title
4. Florida boat registra-
tion or title (if living on a boat/
houseboat)
5. A statement from a par
ent, step-parent, or legal guard
ian of an applicant. The parent
or guardian must reside at the
same residence address, ac-
company the applicant and
present "proof of residence ad-
dress."
6. A utility hook up or work
order dated within 60 days of
the application.
7. Automobile Payment
Booklet.
8. Selective Service Card.
9. Medical or health card
with address listed.
10. Current homeowner's
insurance policy or bill.
11. Current automobile in-
surance policy or bill.
12. Educational institution
transcript forms for the current
school year.
13. Unexpired professional
license issued by a government
agency in the U.S.
14. W-2 form or 1099 form.
15. Form DS2019, Certificate
of Eligibility for Exchange Visi-
tor (J-l) status.
16. A letter from a homeless
shelter, transitional service pro-
vider, or a half-way house veri-
fying that the customer resides
at the shelter address.

The traditional Survivor Walk brought out large numbers of folks who have fought the
good fight against cancer. Caregivers also take part in the lap.

Former Hendry County teacher Shelley Brown, right, and her 90-year-old mother, Stella
Bauer, attended the Relay for Life Saturday, March 21, Their stories were similar to
many at the annual affair. Shelley went through skin cancer and her mother survived
both skin cancer and breast cancer. Shelley's 39-year-old son died five years ago from
a fast growing cancer that spread from his spine to his brain in just 16 days.





Veteran memorial taking shape


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Folks are eagerly awaiting
the new veterans memorial be-
ing built in LaBelle, especially
since real progress is now vis
ible every day as people drive
down SR 80 past the Court-
house.
A pile of over 6,000 bricks
was delivered March 9, fol-
lowed quickly by machines lev-
eling the ground. Then a crew
actually laid pavers into the pat-
tern that will lead around the
central monument.
The original pavers will
eventually be replaced, one by
one, with memorial bricks in-
scribed with the names of vet-


erans. The first three are being
donated by the American Le
gion, inscribed with the names
of LaBelle servicemen Nicholas
Cutinha, who earned the Con-
gressional Medal of Honor in
Viet Nam and is buried in Fort
Denaud Cemetery, Marine Staff
Sgt. Chris Strickland, who was
killed last year in Afghanistan
and Army Chief Warrant Officer
Robert Hammett, who died last
year in Iraq.
A combination of natural
serenity and patriotic art, the
memorial is taking shape right
before everyone's eyes.
Memorials will be placed
around the site's core for each
of America's 20th Century con
flicts from World War I to Af-


ghanistan and Iraq.
The American flag will be
joined by flags from the State of
Florida, VFW, American Legion
and DAV.
The memorial will include
several benches, donated by
the LaBelle Rotary Club, where
people can sit and reflect, as
well as trees donated by the
Masonic Lodge. Survey work
was donated by HL Bennett
and the City of LaBelle donated
the site.
Organizers still need grass
and a well for the site and are
hoping someone will step up
with those donations in honor

Independent Newspapers,
publishers of the Caloosa Belle,
has announced plans to con-
vert the size of its six commu-
nity newspapers from the tra-
ditional broadsheet format to a
new "compact" format.
Readers will see the change
in format beginning with next
week's editions.
The biggest change, said
Tom Byrd, the company's vice
president of operations, will be
in the size of the page.
"The width of the page re-
mains relatively the same, but
the height of the page will be
reduced from 22 inches to 12
inches," said Mr. Byrd.
The new format is meant to
appeal to readers and advertis-
ers, in addition to being more
efficient and environmentally
responsible. "We're confident
readers will find the new mod-


ular format convenient to read
and much more attractive,"
said Mr. Byrd.
"Advertisers will immediate-
ly notice that their ads stand out
more and they will see greater
impact from their ads in this
new format," added Mr. Byrd.
The compact size also pro
vides more opportunity for
more color throughout the
newspaper. Each newspaper's
commitment to local news re-
mains the same.
"We will continue to be the
No. 1 source for local news in
each of the communities we
serve," stated Mr. Byrd. "We're
confident our new-and-im-
proved newspapers, along with
our existing online community
sites, allow us to be the leader
in local news."

Prayer luncheon
Andy Bratcher, right, of Christ Central set the mood for
the Mayor's Prayer Lunch March 16, with soulful music of
praise. The event brought Christians of all denominations
out to hear of a very special medical mission project called
Faith and Deeds Ministries. It is the first mission group
sending missionaries from Jamaica. Dr. Coril Warmington
and Marian Stewart shared their vision and experiences
from their mission in Liberia with LaBelle residents. Above:

In addition, driver's licenses
need only be renewed every eight
years now, not six years as was
previously required.

land Hwy., the office is open Mon-

The board also voted to re-
name Ohio Street in honor of
E.G. Thomas, the city's first black
commissioner. An event will be
planned for April 25.
There was also discussion
on honoring Selma Daniels, a
pioneer educator in LaBelle who


built and ran a school for black
children. Ms. Daniels taught in the
'30s and '40s in Ford-Sunset Park
at the Daniels School. The build-
ing, located on Manatee Ave., was
used as a community building
after desegregation in the 1970s,
but is considered in too poor
condition to be renovated. Still,
resident Dorothy Johnson hoped
something could be done to save
the building and also to memori-
alize Ms. Daniels for future gen
erations. The board also voted to
pave James Singleton Place.

Wanted: sincere, affected
workers in need of assistance.
It's no secret that the economy
is unravelling the area's traditional
industries, mainly agriculture.
Layoffs are hitting local people
hard. Losses in agriculture jobs
and fear for the future undercuts
the already weak job market lo-
cally. There is a bright spot, how-
ever. The Agency for Workforce
Innovations has a program for
dislocated workers for qualified
clients.
Tim Nevarez is the supervisor
of the Career and Service Centers
of Southwest Florida Immokalee
and Clewiston offices.
Employment training is what
these centers do. Naturally, there
are eligibility criteria for programs.
Participants must:
be terminated/laid off or noti-
fied of layoff;
be eligible for or have exhaust-
ed unemployment compensation
benefits or
have worked long enough to
establish an attachment to the La-
bor market; and
unlikely to return to his/her
previous occupation or job.
Also, included are those laid
off due to:
plant closures or substantial
layoffs at a plant or facility;
are employed at a facility at
which the employer has made a
general announcement that it will
close within 180 days.
Orientation workshops are
held every Tuesday, 11:30 a.m. at
the Immokalee One Stop Center,
750 South Fifth Street; 239-658-
3311.
Sessions are also held every
Monday and Wednesday at the
Clewiston Center, at 10 a.m., 215
South Francisco Street. 983-6138.
The Immokalee center has 2.5
counselors and there are four at
the Clewiston center.

sions as a first step.
Mr. Nevarez said training pro-
grams and on the job training are
available to assist both the em-
ployee and employer.
The program can also help
workers earn certificates neces-
sary to gain employment, contin
ue employment or be promoted
in their current job.
The local area covers Immoka-
lee, LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore
Haven. Folks in LaBelle and
Moore Haven are welcome to use
either the Clewiston or Immoka

Mr. Nevarez said they look at

on fatal crash


Tuesday morning Florida
Highway Patrol were investigat-
ing a fatal accident in Hendry
County on CR 845 and CR 833
near Ocean Boy Farms. It was a
single vehicle rollover crash in-
volving a green 1998 Nissan van.
One person was pronounced
deceased on scene and three
people were flown to area hos-
pitals.
The driver, described as a His-
panic male, wearing blue jeans
and a grey shirt was observed
walking from the crash scene.
FHP is trying to contact Rodolfo
Nunez- Velasco, age 19, as a per
son of interest in this case. If you
have any information regarding
this crash or the location of Mr.
Velasco please contact the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol at 239-938
1800 or *FHP.
According to the FHP report,


Mr. Nunez-Velasco was driv-
ing the Nissan southbound on
CR 835 and drifted off the road
onto the westbound shoulder.
He overcorrected and entered
back onto the road, traveling
across both lanes of CR 835.
The vehcicle entered the east-
bound shoulder and struck a
large utility pole with its left rear,
overturning. The vehicle came
to a final rest on its roof facing
northwest.
Manuel Gomez Santis, 26,
was pronounced dead at the
scene. Three other passengers
suffered serious injuries. Marceli-
na Gonzalez, 21 and Rayna Gon-
zalez, 18, were both transported
to Lee Memorial Hospital. Abe-
lito Moralas, 22, was transported
to St. Mary's Hospital.
All the victims are from

your deadline for filing your Per-

The return was mailed to all busi-

WASHINGTON, March 17,
2009 The recently approved

producers to become eligible for

they did not previously obtain oth-

Low enough to hear from indoors too. My guess is that they are flying
into Ft. Myers. So much for our quiet community. Does anyone know
if this will keep up or is this temporary?

Poison: Danger for all ages


By Pat Dobbins
Most people think about chil-
dren when it comes to poison
dangers and poison prevention,
but many adults put themselves
at risk of poisoning every day.
Accidental poisoning and
overdoses have been increasing
and experts think that it's the in-

prescription
crease usei tii

pain killers,
sedatives, psy-
cho-therapeu-
tic drugs and
other narcot

caused this in-
crease. Patricia
Adults need Dobbins
to take their
medications responsibly! Be sure
to read the warning labels, and
ask your doctor or pharmacist if
you have any questions.
There are so many medica-
tions that can be dangerous if
they are mixed with alcohol, oth-
er medications and even certain
foods. Be sure to tell your doctor
about any medications that you
are taking, including any vitamins
or over the counter medications.
If you or your child is required
to take any liquid medications,
please use the proper measuring
tool, don't "guess"! A teaspoon
from your silverware drawer is
different than a regular measured
teaspoon.


You don't want to accidentally
give your child too much medica-
tion do you? Parents should make
sure that all medications are out
of reach not only for younger kids,
but for teenagers as well.
Some teenagers have over-
dosed on medications that were
easily accessible in their parent's
medicine cabinets! All medicines
should be kept in their original
containers with the proper label-
ing and you should never share
your medications!
If you ever have any questions
about poison prevention or infor-
mation on a possible poisoning,
you can call the Florida Poison
Information Center Network
(FPICN).
They provide emergency ser-
vices 24 hours a day, seven days a
week (1-800-222-1222). The calls
are routed to one of three nation-
ally accredited poison centers in
Tampa, Jacksonville or Miami,
where trained staff can help an-
swer your questions and manage
poisoning emergencies.

homeless
How often do you stop to think
about the Homeless in our com-
munity? Unfortunately, not many
of us do. The face of homeless-
ness is often unrecognized. Hen-
dry and Glades counties home-
less problem is not as prevalent
as it may be in large metropolitan
areas. Yet, many families are af-
fected by homelessness in our
community everyday. They are
forced to live in over crowded,
unsafe, homes not suitable for
habitation "doubled up' with oth-
er families just to have a place to
call "home."
To help raise awareness in
Hendry and Glades counties, we
are hosting an event "Breakfast
with the Easter Bunny". This is a
family friendly event to benefit the
Hendry Glades Homeless Coali-
tion. Saturday April 11, 8 a.m.-10
a.m. at Barron Park in the City of
LaBelle.
To be successful, this event
not only depends on volunteers
but also sponsorship from area
businesses and organizations. We
would like to invite you to be part
of this exciting event by becom-
ing a sponsor. We have a number
of sponsorship opportunities with
numerous benefits, including rec
ognition in all printed materials as
well as acknowledgment the day
of the event.
All the profits from the break-
fast will go directly to the HGHC
to support programs of aware-
ness, education, advocacy and
family assistance. For more infor-
mation all are invited to contact
me at 863.675.5297. Your Support
of the Hendry Glades Homeless
Coalition is greatly appreciated.
Your contribution of $25 will
be used to cover the cost of: spon-
sorship of a family of four, paper
goods cups, plates, napkins, bev
erages, food, filled Easter baskets.

Clarifying county
business
To the editor:
I feel compelled to write this
letter to the people of Hendry
County to clarify some misrepre
sentations that have been made
by another paper about the Coun-
ty. This is the same paper that
would rather insult people than
report the facts. This will be the
first of several letters that will dis-
cuss different issue: in the County
and the manner they are being
addressed. The first one is the
Clewiston Sub-office. In 1998 the
Board decided to plan on moving
out of the old sub-office because
it was too small, 8,750 sq. ft. That
fact has not changed.
The Board purchased 9 acres
on Olympia and with grants built
the first half of the project the
Health Department. In 2005 Hur-
ricane Wilma flooded the sub-
office and destroyed the double
wide trailer, 1,400 sq. ft, the Sher-
iff had been using. We currently
have leased 8,000 sq ft at the
Clewiston Town Center. We own
two other buildings: the Exten-
sion Office on the highway, 1,400
sq. ft., and the Satellite office on
Central 3,200 sq. ft. We have a to-
tal of 14,750 sq. ft.
Two different structural en-
gineers have reported that the
sub-office building has significant
structural issues and estimate
over $165,000 just to repair the
structure which does not include
flood protection, a new roof,
mold removal, electrical, plumb-
ing, air conditioning, drywall or
flooring.
The County would spend over


ing that is too small for our exist-
ing needs and does not allow for
future expansion.
My proposal is now and al-
ways has been to build one func-
tional building that meets today's
building codes using the insur-
ance money from the old building
and the proceeds from selling the
other two buildings so that all of
the County offices are under one
roof with room for future expan-
sion.
This would leave us with some
debt but it will save the County
from maintaining three different
buildings, save the taxpayers by
being able to have one stop for
County services and provide a
building that the Sheriff's Office
can stay in during storms instead
of leaving for Labelle. In my opin
ion this is using taxpayer money
wisely while planning for the fu-
ture.
Sincerely,
Kevin McCarthy

What happened to
immigration reform?
Many Southwestern Florida
growers overlook the use of un-
documented labor to tend and
harvest their crops because the
southwestern Florida agricultural
industry would collapse without
it.
Meanwhile, the traffic in illegal
farm labor creates a homeland
security risk as well as a conduit
for illegal substances. Disman-
tling the human smuggling busi-
ness along our southern border is
vital to America's best interest.
It's impossible to eliminate
a profitable illegal activity when
people need or want the services
or goods provided. If legislation
was enacted that allowed suf


Florida growers' needs, the hu-
man smuggling networks would
regress. Homeland security
would be enhanced at a relatively
low cost and the growing Mexi-
can based drug connections with
Southwestern Florida agricultural
communities would be easier to
control.
American lawmakers are nei-
ther dumb nor lazy, but realistic
legislation hasn't been passed nor
has current legislation been strict
ly enforced. What's the problem?
I asked a local farmer who ad
mitted he couldn't stay in business
without undocumented farm la-
bor. He has to overlook the law to
obtain that labor. He feels that im-
migration laws meeting the needs
of Florida growers will allow him
to create a more stable source of
reliable seasonal workers.
I asked what he thinks is pre-
venting reform to allow growers
to operate within the law? My
farmer friend blamed the big la-
bor unions for preventing legisla-
tive reform. Many people around
here agree with him.
In fact, unions would benefit
by legislation allowing farmers to
have access to adequate legal im-
ported labor because an undocu-
mented worker cannot belong to
a union. It's against the law, and
that law is strictly enforced. If
unions have a problem with un-
documented workers, it would be
in the construction industry, not
the farming industry.
My farmer friend can best min-
imize his seasonal labor costs by
allowing things to stay as they are,
but at what cost to himself? His
life is controlled by the whims of
politicians who force him to over-
look the law in order to maintain
his livelihood. My farmer friend is
just as much a hostage as are his
undocumented workers.

Faith in the Marketplace: It's a Paradox


What is a paradox? It's a state-
ment that appears to be contra-
dictory, but may very well be
true. Ok, I know that, but what is
a paradox? If I
tell you that I
know nothing,
that is a para-
dox, a contra-
dictory state-
ment. If I know
that I know
nothing, then
I know some-
thing. But if Fr. Alan
the something Kelmereit
that I know
is that I know nothing..... My
philosophy professor would be
proud of me right now! No, not
because I know that I know noth-
ing, but because I presented the
paradox. Some other time we'll
discuss whether I really know
nothing or not. Sgt. Schultz was
always so certain when he said "I
know nothing!"


Jesus offered us a great para-
dox: "Those who love their life in
this world will lose it. Those who
care nothing for their life in this
world will keep it for eternity.l"
Here's another look at the state-
ment, "The one who loves his life
is ruining it, and the one who dis-
regards his life in this world will
keep it for eternal life.2" How's
that for a paradox? If you're do-
ing well in life, you're losing it!
Sounds screwy, but there it is
nonetheless.
A few weeks ago I spoke
about this being the season of
Lent, a season that is traditionally
associated with introspection and
self examination. Perhaps, this
would be a good time to consider
this "paradox of the day." The key
to understanding this statement
is knowing what you put first in
your life. Aha, the light comes
on. It's all about priorities. I once
worked for a man who replied to
a bunch of us griping about not


having enough time by saying,
"Think about the person, living or
dead, who accomplished more
in life than anyone else. You have
exactly the same amount of time
that they had. It's not about time,
it's all about priorities." Now, I
ask you, how can you argue with
that?
The message in the statement
is that if we value the things of this
world above all else, those things
will constitute all that we have, or
ever will have, in life. Reminds
of the old saw, "I've never seen a
U-Haul on the back of a hearse."
On the other hand, said Jesus, if
we value, and set a high priority,
on caring for other people, do-
ing good, and loving others, we
are well on the way to keeping
our lives. But wait, what we do
is not all there is to it. Where we
place our loyalty is the major part
of keeping our lives. What Jesus
had in mind was that we should
place our trust, our loyalty, our


faith with him. That's the whole
thing loving God and loving oth-
ers.
This is the season to contem-
plate where we put our priori-
ties. If you come first on your list,
there's trouble on the horizon. If
you don't believe it, think back
over your life. I have never had
one single person tell me that
they have built a great life by do-
ing everything their own way. In
fact, they usually end up telling
me about all the things they wish
they had done differently. There's
a better way, Jesus' way.
Paradox, based on this article
and the scripture for Sunday,
John 3:14-21, will be the theme
of discussion at Good Shepherd,
Saturday, 5:30 p.m.

Sweet deception:Youth in the crosshairs again


Targeting the youth of America
is nothing new for the tobacco
industry. Despite industry deni-
als, we know Big Tobacco has
targeted youth through the use of
cartoon characters, sports spon-
sorships, sexy models and aggres-
sive advertising campaigns.
Though much of the industry's
strategy to hook young people
revolves around advertising and
promotional activities, new prod
uct development plays a huge role
in the recruitment of new tobacco
users. One of the most significant
developments in recent years has
been the explosion in flavored to-
bacco products.

The unaddressed
threat
At virtually every corner con-
venience store and local beverage
stores such as Patson's and Hari's,
a wide array of flavored cigars,
cigarillos, blunt wraps and spit
tobacco products can be found.
Offerings include a cornucopia of
fruity candy flavors such as grape,
peach, apple, watermelon, pine-
apple and strawberry, alcohol fla-
vors like apple martini, rum and
wine, and traditional kid favorites
like chocolate, vanilla, and honey.
Some of these stores even sell
the hookahs or water pipes that
are becoming increasing popular
with college youth and are fre-
quently used with exotic flavored
tobaccos.
Flavor is an integral part of the
spit tobacco industry's graduation
strategy. They use lower nicotine
products in familiar, kid-friendly
flavors as starter products for
youth. Youth in internet chat sites
are anticipating spit tobaccos with
new flavors like watermelon.
If you search for "watermelon
Skoal," you will find hits on MyS-
pace, YouTubea and other sites.
The talk is all excitement over the


possibility of a new flavor coming
out. "I am just a freshman in H.S.
and I have been dipping since the
end of 8th grade."
A US Smokeless Tobacco Com-
pany (UST) document, discussing
Hawken, one of the first sweet,
low-nicotine brands, noted that
"these products have reached
kids four to five years earlier than
we have contacted them in the
past." (January 21, 1980 confi-
dential document from UST.)
Flavor is also playing a role in
new products that are being pro-
moted by the industry. Most of the
emerging trends in tobacco incor-
porate the use of flavors.
The new Camel and Marlboro
snus products being marketed by
Reynolds American and Phillip
Morris come in flavors like mint
and spice.

Responding to the
flavor craze
As citizens concerned about
the influences on our youth, what
can we do to deal with the grow-
ing flavored tobacco trend? In
Florida, some counties are cur-
rently pursuing local ordinances
which prohibit the sale of flavored
tobacco products.
Florida has developed an
action plan and tools to assist
groups interested in implement-
ing this strategy in their own com-
munities. The materials include a
draft ordinance, retail store sur-
vey, talking points, power point
presentations, hand outs and
much more.
This past October, Drug Free
Coalitions were developed in
Hendry and Glades Counties
through the Tobacco Prevention
Program to address Alcohol, To
bacco and other drugs affecting
our community's youth.
Community Coalitions are
comprised of parents, teachers,


law enforcement, businesses, re-
ligious leaders, health providers
and other leaders who mobilize
at the local level to positively af-
fect their community.
By connecting multiple sectors
of the community in a compre-
hensive approach, it is possible
to achieve real outcomes in sub-
stance abuse and violence reduc-
tion.
The coalition held a retreat in
February to develop their mission
statement and formulate a steer-
ing committee to move forward.
Mission:
The Drug Free Hendry County
Coalition is dedicated to empow-
ering youth, and over time adults,


to reject harmful substances by
increasing education, motivation,
collaboration, and awareness to
create a safe and healthy com-
munity.
If you are interested in becom
ing involved, please attend the
next Coalition meeting on Mon-
day, April 20th at the Clewiston
High School Auditorium begin-
ning at 5:30 pm.

ty Health Department's Tobacco

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
When you replace the toilet
paper roll, before you put it on
the spindle, put a few drops of
scented oil or perfume on the
cardboard and it will scent the
air.
I used to say that the Lord
would not take me until some-
body else in the house learned
to replace the toilet paper AND
fill the empty ice cube trays. I'm
still here...
Should your dinner boil over
in the oven just sprinkle salt on
the spill and wipe up when cool.
White distilled vinegar acts as an
antibiotic.
My latest "toe procedure"
called for simple directions.
Soak in a solution of 1/3 cup of
white vinegar to each quart of
water.
My garlic cloves will start to
sprout before I can use them
up. Take a toothpick and stick it
through the center and hang it
over a small container.
I used a small empty pill
bottle. You would not believe


the roots that start to grow over-
night. The sprouts will grow
about an inch a day once they
get started. Snip the sprouts to
use in cooking.
I finally put mine in a pot (by
that time I had four) and put on
the window sill.
One of my BFF's sent me a
list of perks of getting old. Here
are a few:
No one expects you to run---
-anywhere;
There is nothing left to learn
the hard way; and
Things you buy now won't
wear out.

LABELLE, FL (March 19,2009)
-The goal for the United Way of
Hendry & Glades 2008-2009 Cam-
paign is $194,000, and early re-
sults show the campaign is short
of the goal. Current contributions
total $168,000, or about 85% of
the goal.
"I would like to thank the gen-
erous organizations and individu-
als who have already contributed
to the campaign," said Michael
Talaga, United Way Campaign
Chair and Senior Vice-President,
Human Resources and Informa-
tion Technology for Alico, Inc.
"But we are short of our goal at
a time when our 34 local United
Way partner agencies need ev
ery dollar. We want to be sure
that the residents of Hendry and
Glades Counties receive the ser-
vices they need when so many
people are in great need."
Julie Osterhout, chair of the
"Giving Rocks" event to take
place April 18th in LaBelle, add-
ed, "Giving Rocks is our big fund-
raising event for the United Way
campaign in Hendry and Glades
Counties. The event is a very im-
portant part of helping us reach
the $194,000 goal." She added,
"This year the event should be
better than ever. We will have
a fun auction, raffle, antique car
show as well as entertainment
and excellent food. It will be at
the Barron House in LaBelle."
For more information about at-
tending the event, or to become
a sponsor or volunteer, please
contact either Julie Osterhout or
Arlene Bettencourt at (863) 675-
8383.


A local network of thirty-four
agencies and programs will re-
ceive funds from the 2008 2009
United Way of Hendry & Glades
fundraising campaign. These
agencies include: The Salvation
Army, the Children's Advocacy
Center, Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Healthy Families and
many others. This network serves
a diverse range of needs nurtur
ing children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly
and disabled live independently,
and empowering communities
by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods. The
network of United Way agencies
helped over 21,000 people in
Hendry and Glades Counties last
year.
Extensive volunteer involve-
ment allows the United Way to
keep fundraising costs extremely
low, and community volunteers
evaluate agency performance
and thoroughly study agency
budgets and programs to make
sure United Way dollars are spent
efficiently and with impact. All
money raised through the United
Way of Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties campaign remains in the
Hendry and Glades area aiding
members of the community who
really need the help.
In addition to raising funds
for human service organizations
in our community, the United
Way promotes partnerships and
collaborations among agencies,
helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions
that continue to improve lives.

five children, June Coffey (Kelly),
Rose Mason, Buddy Raulerson
(Gwen), Wayne Raulerson (Eileen),
all of LaBelle, and Marie Hays
(Randy) of Wauchula.
As a young man, Hardy made his
living as a working cowboy for local
cattle ranchers, including his uncles,
Joe, Ben, and Bob Thomas. As his
family grew along with the financial
demands, he ventured into other
lines of work.
At the age of 13 he learned to play
the fiddle, which to this day he is still
known for, just as his father and

grandfather had done before him.
When he was just a teenager, a trav-
eling music show from the WSM
Grand Ole Opry in Nashville came to
town. They were told of Hardy's tal-
ent on the fiddle and they went to
his home to hear him play, but he
wasn't home. The fiddle remained
his passion for the rest of his life.
Hardy was first and foremost a
family man, devoted to his wife and
children. He loved his friends and
was a walking encyclopedia of the
pioneer families in the Immokalee
area. In 1995, he moved to LaBelle


where he lived the rest of his life.
He will be sorely missed by all who
knew him.
He is survived by his wife and five
children; 12 grandchildren; and 12
great-grandchildren. Hendry County
Sheriff, Steve Whidden is one of his
grandsons. He is also survived by
one sister and two brothers, Daphne
Shellabarger of Immokalee, Howell
Raulerson, and Ralph Raulerson
both of Mt. Vernon, Ga.
Burial was at the Mount Zion
Primitive Baptist Church cemetery in
Felda.

'Quilting From the



Heart' rewarded


By Brenda Barnes
Glades County -Quilting from
the heart. That's what Phyllis Ash
er and Jean Brew do every day in
Glades County. Phyllis and Jean
hand sew small quilts and donate
them to the Glades County Health
Department for the new or ex-
pecting moms and their soon to
be bundles of joy.
Phyllis and Jean have been
sewing for most of their lives
and when they were asked "why
they do it?" they humbly replied,
"because we love to sew and we
know there are families in Glades
County that could use the quilts."
They never requested nor ex-
pected any kind of reward or rec-
ognition for their donated time,
talents and efforts, they just "quilt
from the heart." But Pat Dob-
bins, Administrator for the Glades
and Hendry County Health De-
partments and Greta Gallo, the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment Healthy Start Family Support
Worker, decided that these ladies
needed to know how much they
are appreciated.
Ms. Gallo helps to distribute
the donated quilts through the
Glades County Healthy Start Pro
gram. Ms. Dobbins personally
thanked Phyllis and Jean by pre-
senting them with a certificate of
appreciation that stated "Together
We Care."
Ms. Dobbins stated, "It's ladies
like Phyllis and Jean that make
me proud to work with the caring
communities of Glades County."
Phyllis Asher and her husband
have lived in Glades County for
over 11 years. They have been
married for 55 years and they are
members of the Baptist Church in
Lakeport.
They are originally from Indi-
ana and when Phyllis was asked
how she chose Glades County for
her home, she stated "I suppose


that's where God wanted me."
Phyllis has been an active volun-
teer for most of her life.
In Indiana, she serviced the A
schools as a "Gray Lady," which
provided first aid to school chil-
dren. She was a Girl Scout Leader
for over 15 years and most recent
ly has volunteered for Hope Hos-
pice and nursing homes in the
surrounding areas, not to men-
tion the lovely quilts that she sews
and donates! Phyllis says that she
loves to sew and probably sews
from 8 to 10 hours per day!
Jean Brew and her husband L
have been coming to Glades Lo
County to live for the winter
months for over 5 years. They
have been married for 43 years
and are members of the Method-
ist Church. They are from Wis-
consin, but love coming to Glades
County every year from January
to March.
Jean has also been an active
volunteer. She volunteers at the
Elementary School in Moore Ha-
ven helping children from kinder-
garten through second grade with
their reading. Back in Wisconsin,
Jean was a Home Economics
teacher and is a member of the
Kiwanis's Club.
Jean says that she also loves to
sew and she loves trying out new
quilt patterns. Phyllis and Jean
wanted to make sure that some
other folks were recognized as
well. They wanted to thank the
following people for their help
with the quilting project: Sharon,
Betty, Elaine, Janis, Becky, Irene,
Jill, Phyllis, Bea & Alana.
The Glades County Health De-
partment and the Communities
of Glades County sure appreciate
these ladies and that they "quilt
from the heart"!

fore they head back to their Northern residences as a way of
giving to the community.

LMS students proudly show off their awards.


LaBelle Middle School students shine


After months of research, ex
perimentation, class presenta-
tions, and an outstanding school
science fair, LaBelle Middle School
students walked away from the
52nd annual Thomas Alva Edison
Kiwanis Science and Engineering
Fair in Fort Myers, with awards to-
taling in the thousands of dollars.
Juan Arrieta, Myaa Barnhart,
Derek Bass, Glenn Burton, Gio-
vana Maldonado, Tabitha Parker,
Jessica Smith, Timothy Smith,
and Gory Taylor represented the
LMS science department and
their teachers, Mr. Dave Blake,
Mrs. Marty Dayton and Mrs. Carol
Grigsby, very well as they were
honored with numerous ribbons,
trophies, awards, and prizes.
With 456 students represent-
ing 54 schools from Charlotte,
Glades, Hendry, and Lee coun-
ties our students found they faced
grueling questions from as many
as twelve different judges over a
period of about five hours as they
vied for top spots at the awards
ceremony.


Myaa Barnhart and Glenn Bur
ton, both 6th graders, received
Honorable Mention awards with
projects entitled "Salt Water De-
salination" and "Lima Beans:
What Color Light Makes Them
Grow Best?" respectively. In addi-
tion, Myaa also received a Special
Award recognition along with a
$50 gift certificate from Barns and
Nobles Bookstore.
Taking third place was three
8th graders with projects in the
categories of Behavioral and So
cial Science, Chemistry, and En
ergy and Transportation. These
trophies and certificates went to
Gigi Maldonado with a project en-
titled "Which Gender is Smarter
in Science?", Jessica Smith with
"To Glow or Not to Glow", and
Cory Taylor whose project carried
the title "Can Local Algae Make
Biofuel?"
With a project in Biochemistry
entitled "How do Liquids Affect
Microbes Such As Yeast? Derek
Bass, also an 8th grader, took sec
ond place.


Taking first place, at the Edison
Kiwanis Science Fair in the Behav-
ioral and Social Science division,
was Tabitha Parker, with a project
sporting the title "Are You Smarter
Than An 8th Grader?" and yes
you guessed it, Tabitha is an 8th
grader at LMS.
In addition to the first place
trophy Tabitha was selected for a
Grand Award, which included the
following prizes: a Nomination for
"Discovery Young Scientists Chal-
lenge" a program that includes a
three day/two night trip to New
York City and a chance to win
$50,000 in cash, a one-year mem-
bership for Tabitha and her family
to the Imaginarium in Fort Myers
and finally, upon graduation, a
one-year full academic scholar-
ship to Edison State College.
Thanks to the dedication and
perseverance of outstanding
teachers and students alike La-
Belle Broncos shone brightly in

Project H.O.PE.
Sometimes when a disaster
is over and you are just begin-
ning to get back on your feet, you
discover you still do not have the
ability to repair or rebuild your
home without some help. After

been able to repair or rebuild
but things are just not the same.
Anxiety or just feeling the blues is
common. Talking really helps...
getting connected with available
resources really helps!!
Project H.O.PE. is a FEMA
funded program managed by the
State of Florida. Project H.O.P.E.
outreach workers are in your
community. If you would like to
talk with one of the team mem-
bers, please contact Diego at 239-
200-7454. They are here to help
and would love to hear how you
are doing!
