County


plans to


recycle

By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Countywide recycling may
be in the near future. At its April
28 meeting, the Board of County
Commissioners asked County
Attorney Mark Lapp to revisit the
solid waste franchise ordinance,
which has not been looked at in
29 years. The Solid Waste Advi
sory Committee is recommend
ing pick up changes including
one day a week for household
waste, one day for recycling and
one day for yard waste.
Commissioner Tris Chapman
asked staff to check on how re-
cycling projects are doing in Port
LaBelle, Felda and Riverbend
and asked for feedback from
constituents on the issue.
County Administrator Judi
Kennington-Korf said Port La-
Belle had an "overwhelming"
response from the beginning
and has one of the highest re-
sponses in the state. She added
that the county first educated
the community before begin-
ning the project. She said Riv-
erbend's project has also been
successful. The City of LaBelle is
also about to launch a recycling
program. Ms. Kennington-Korf
suggested Terri Cross attend the
next meeting to provide more
information.

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Butterflies symbolized beauty and freedom as victims of
violent crimes observed the second annual Victims Rights
Week on May 1 at Barron Park. The small event took place at
a tiny garden tucked away on the Barron Park House prop-
erty, a small victory for those who have been victimized by
others. Martin Stark, head of the State Attorney Office for
Hendry-Glades, made a few brief remarks before the butter-
fly release. City employee David Perkins is taking personal
charge of caring for the small garden.

Is your


home


firewise?
Become a partner in fire protec-
tion. The simple truth is that our fire
departments don't have enough re-
sources to protect every home in
the county or city.
Much of what is known about
protecting homes from wildland
fire is based on the research of the
U. S. Forest Fire Lab in Missoula,
Montana. They have found that
most homes lost to fire is due to
ignition of the two most vulnerable
parts of your home:
1. The roof and eaves
2. The area immediately sur-
rounding your home or structure.
Home ignitions usually occur
over relatively short distances-tens
of yards, not hundreds of feet from
little things associated with either:
> Fire brands (wind blown
embers) landing on and around
the structure
> Flames from slow-moving,
low-intensity surface fire contacting
flammable portions of the struc-
ture.
This means the homeowner can
play a significant role in reducing
home losses from wildfires by re-
ducing fuels and through landscap-
ing in the "home ignition zone," an
area that extends outward from the
home 100-200 feet in all directions.
The most critical area is a zone of
"defensible space" within 30 feet of
the structure.
Inside your "defensible space"

free of fear and worry. She could run and
play without a care. She could sleep sound-
ly in her own bed and was a regular on the
A-B honor roll.
It only took one afternoon for her young
life to change dramatically.
Cassie's father was in the house taking
a nap. A diabetic who had his leg amputat
ed, he had recently been released from the
hospital. Her mother was cutting the grass
and a friend was picking up debris from the
yard.
Cassie was playing in a "fort" in a little
copse in the trees on their property. Un-
known to any of the family, another pair of
eyes was watching uncaring, opportunistic
eyes.
Her mom saw Cassie come out of the
trees and could see something was wrong.
She thought the child had gotten into ants.
As Cassie headed for the house, her mom
followed. What she found out when she
talked to the child made her sick at heart
and very angry.
A 5'10" tall, 200 pound friend of a neigh-
bor had paid the child a visit in the "fort,"
asking her if she wanted to "play a game."
Little Cassie didn't want to play his "game,"
but that made no difference.
Inside the house she told her mother
what happened although, being just eight,
she wasn't sure exactly what it was she
only knew it was very bad. Her mother
called the sheriff's office and investigators
went over the crime scene. The Children's
Advocate examined her. Two days after the
attack, the man was arrested.
During her attack, Cassie held her Game-
boy the whole time, focusing on it, keeping
her mind occupied and clinging to the only
weapon she had. She thought the man had
a knife because, she said, "men do." She
was determined to pummel him with her
Gameboy if he tried to kill her. She may not

have been able to stop him, but she was
sure going to do whatever she could in her
own defense.
Even when her attacker was in jail, Cass
ie had no peace. He sent word with a neigh-
bor that he would get out of jail and "take
care of her." Cassie felt better when she was
shown that the jail was a secure place her
attacker couldn't not get out of.
Still, she was wracked with nightmares,
walked in her sleep and even pulled her hair
out by the handfuls. She began sleeping
with her mother, afraid her attacker would
get out of jail and kill her family. Unable
to sleep at night, Cassie would fall asleep
in class it was the only place she felt safe
enough to fall asleep.
After 16 months the case finally came
to trial. He was found guilty and sentenced
to 35 years in the Department of Correc-
tions and given credit for 532 days served.
He was also designated a sexual predator
and forbidden to contact the victim or her
family. After release, he must submit to GPS
monitoring. On March 4 he filed an appeal.
Ten years old by then, Cassie was told she
didn't have to go to the trial, but she wanted
to. This man had taken her innocence, her
peace. At one point her father had suffered
a heart attack and fell out of his wheelchair,
causing other injuries, because he felt he
was unable to protect his daughter. Her
mother cried all the time. Even her younger

Trim lower branches up to 10 feet on
tall trees, remove vines from the trees, and
keep shrubbery away from the pine trees so
that a fire on the ground cannot climb up
these fuel ladders to the tree tops.
Keep combustible items like wood
piles, compost piles, gas grills, gas cans and
propane tanks at least 30 feet away from
your house. Clear away dead vegetation,
pine needles and branches.
Use mowed grass, gravel walkways
and mulched plantings near your home.
Although mulch helps retain soil moisture,
it must be kept moist or it becomes a fuel

brother felt he had let her down.
The night before the trial she cried a
lot and had butterflies in her stomach.
She couldn't sleep. In the courtroom she
watched as he smirked at the judge with
his legs crossed, but she stood her ground,
even taking the stand, armed with her
stuffed care bear and stuffed deer dressed
like a ballerina with a hat and veil. Looking
directly at her attacker, she bravely told her
story for the jury.
This amazing little girl conquered it all.
Now she's even working with another vic
tim a 13-year-old girl suffering from the
same sexual abuse Cassie received.
Debbie (again not her real name) has yet
to face the legal challenges Cassie did. As
one who has and still deals with the leg-
acy of a sexual attack, Cassie counsels Deb-
bie to be strong; to take up her own defense
and not to let anything get in her way. It's
okay to cry, Cassie tells her, but be strong.
"You didn't do anything wrong."
"My Mom made me strong," Cassie said,
but she still feels like men are watching her.
She stays real close to her mother. These
days in school she only gets A's on "easy
stuff." Her brother's grades have dropped
too. He knows somebody hurt his sister and
he wasn't able to stop it.
What was an attack on one little girl, is
still affecting an entire family.
In March Cassie wore a skirt again for the

green landscape within 30 feet of your struc-
tures? The important thing is that action
must be taken before a wildfire threatens.
Lean -small amounts of flammable
vegetation
Clean no accumulations of dead veg-
etation
Green -plants are healthy and green;
lawn is well irrigated.
Walk around outside your home and
look carefully at the land near your home.
The type, size and density of the plants
determine wildfire risk. Some places may
have characteristics of more than one cat-
egory. Use the following criteria to assess
your risk:
You are at Low Risk if you see...
Bare ground, improved pasture or
widely spaced grass clumps or plants
Moist forest, mostly leafy trees or
mostly large trees
A few plants growing low to the
ground
Oak leaves or other broad leaves cov-

first time since a stranger turned her world
upside down. Cassie is finally conquering
her fears. "He's out of my life now. I learned
how to ride (my bike). He's not going to
ruin my life."
She spoke at the sentencing of her at-
tacker even though she was afraid they
wouldn't believe her, She had something
she wanted to say:
"I want you to know how I feel and how
my family and I have suffered because of
you and what you did to me!
"I'm afraid every day; afraid to trust my
friends; afraid of all men (but not my dad
and my brother); afraid to go anywhere
without my parents; afraid to sleep by
myself; afraid to wear skirts, dresses and
shorts; afraid of my dreams because I have
nightmares so bad I pulled my hair out.
Mama had to comb my hair back to hide
my bald places. Afraid you would get out of
jail and kill me and my family, afraid to play
in my fort or my yard. Everyone tells me I'm
brave but I don't feel brave. I feel afraid, but
Mama says I'm brave, that I'm protecting
other little girls from you. That makes me
happy that you won't hurt or scare another
little girl. I'm proud of bringing you to jus-
tice, I hope you never get out and I hope I
never see you again. My Mama cries all the
time and my daddy had a heart attack. And
that's all I've got to say to you. You are a re-
ally, really REALLY bad man!"

Week three:

Hurricane supply list


Persons at home who need constant oxy-
gen, are bedridden or require total care by
a caregiver are among those who already
should have registered with Hendry County
officials for the Persons with Special Needs
evacuation center. It may be too late to call
for help when the hurricane is bearing down
on us or there is some other natural disaster.
A safe location with generated electrical abil
ity must be identified in advance, and appro
priate transportation arrangements made.
Hendry County Emergency Management
actively conducts the "Persons with Special
Needs" Committee meetings throughout the
year. This committee is made up from all the
health care businesses and agencies in Hen-
dry County. The PSN Committee encourages
residents who have special medical needs to
pre-register with the County, so in the event
of a hurricane or other catastrophe, arrange-
ments for sheltering and transportation can
be carried out quickly.
Persons with Special Needs or their care
givers should call the following agency as
soon as possible to request Hendry Coun
ty's PSN registration form. You can obtain


USSC lawsuit dismissed


CLEWISTON April 28, 2009 U.S.
Sugar Corporation announced today that a
federal judge has dismissed all of the plain-
tiffs' claims in 12 of the 13 counts in a law-
suit against the company, its executives and
board of directors and dismissed all of the
claims of 5 of the 6 plaintiffs in the sole re-
maining count.
"This ruling is a significant victory for U.S.
Sugar," said Judy Sanchez, director of corpo-
rate communications.
Among other key rulings, the Court dis-
missed without prejudice claims challeng-
ing the valuation of US Sugar Stock held by
its Employee Stock Ownership Plan.
The Court ruled that participants have to
bring their claims to the Company's ESOP
Plan Committee for a decision in the first in
stance.
The Court ruled that participants could
not file a lawsuit until they exhaust their ad-
ministrative remedies.
"The Plan is designed to ensure that par-


ticipants receive fair market value for any mi
nority shares they sell back to the Company
on retirement," said Sanchez.

Sidewalks welcome
Great for everyone

I am very excited about the new side
walks going in out on Cowboy Way. The
crews have been working hard and they
look great!
I wonder how far they will extend and
what the plans are for further sidewalk con-


struction out that way.
I won't hold my breath on this one- but it
would be great if somehow this could help
children walk to the schools. I know I will
be riding my bike out that way to work once
they are complete.
Also- the construction out on 80 east is
moving right along. It has been amazing to
see the progress each day. The landscape
has certainly changed out that way.

Route
It's my understanding that the sidewalk
will connect to the existing sidewalk that
ends at the health department and goes out
to the middle school.
After this one they should be headed to
Felda if the Caloosa Belle had it right last
week for a stretch down 29 from CR830 A
to Church Rd.


Letters to the Editor


RE: Big Brothers Watching
You
I was unaware that dogs had legal rights.
A few months ago we obtained a small dog
(I said never a dog in my house) so the wife
gets this little poodle and brings it home.
She says we have to feed it special doggie
food. I said really, when I was a kid we just
fed our dog table scraps.
So as master of the house I fed this little
doggie chicken, hot dogs and a couple cook
ies over a few weeks. Then one night we
came home and the doggie was sick (nearly
dead).
I told the wife you better get that doggie
to a vet. It was a weekend and the vets were
gone. I went to bed, so the wife and her sis-
ter ended up in Ft. Myers at the all day/night
animal hospital.
Well $600 later the girls and that doggie
returned home at 1 a.m.
Well, I was in the doggie house for
awhile. The wife brought home a brochure
for doggie insurance, I said yeah, right, they
don't have insurance for doggies.
I was wrong again, second time in my
life. The next day I got on line, signed up for
doggie insurance at ASPCA Pet Insurance. I
had to give them the doggy's name, weight,
color, sex, age all that important stuff.

Then I paid with my WaMu credit card
at 27.9 percent interest rate. I put the wife's
name down as the owner and care person
of the doggie.
We waited the 2-3 weeks to get all our
information and ID card in the mail. So I de
cided to call 1-800 Doggie Ins. and see what
the hold up was since it had been over 3
weeks.
This is where it gets good. The opera-
tor asked for my last name, doggy's name,
address, all that top secret information, ac-
count number and I provide it all.
She says what can I help you with? I ask
one question about when the insurance
card and paper work was coming to us, and
was told that they could't give out any infor-
mation about tins policy because I wasn't
shown as a doggie owner.
They said is your wife around she can au
thorize this transaction, I kinda understand
the doctor patient confidentiality thing, but
I'm sure my doggie doesn't care if I check
on her welfare.
I'm sure Big Brother is watching.
Sad but true,
George D. Bostick Jr,

doggies table food.

Pruning and Growing


By Fr. Alan Kelmereit
When we first moved into our home five
years ago, I decided that, for the first time
in my life, I would spend
time gardening. In Penn
sylvania, the flowers I
liked all had to be re-
planted every year, and I
am a perennial gardener,
not annual. Most of what
would survive the winter
there were plants that a
few decades earlier were
regarded as weeds, now Fr. Alan
cultivated for their hardi- Kelmereit
ness.
One of the first things I realized here was
that most plants, if left on their own, would
overrun the surrounding landscape fairly
quickly. "Pruning" became the newest word
in my vocabulary. I read books, checked
the internet, and learned all I could about
proper pruning to encourage growth. Then I
set out into the backyard, clippers, saw, ma-
chete, ready to prune everything into amaz-
ing growth. My wife shuddered seeing me
armed for pruning she shuddered for the
welfare of the garden.
Over these five years I've learned a lot
about pruning, mostly that less is more. I've
never really gotten the hang of finding pre-
cisely the right place to cut. Amazingly, the
garden survived my education, and actually
looks pretty good. It's recovering from this
winter's frosts with minimal help from me. I
think the greatest lesson I've learned is that
this is Florida everything grows back!
Many times in the garden, trying to de-
cide where and how to do some pruning,
I've been reminded of what Jesus said about
God pruning us to improve us, to "make
(us) bear more fruit." I've never heard one
of my plants scream when pruned, although
I think some of them would have if they
could. For us, pruning is sometimes easy
and sometimes difficult. Sometimes we lose
activities and even people that we thought
we really liked, only to find out that life is
vastly better without them. Sometimes we
are guided into new ways of living, new
jobs, new social scenes which make life far
better. I look back over my own life, and the
times and ways when God has done some

Our Purpose...
The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a unique
trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of
journalistic service to the citizens of the community.
Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive
on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax
surpluses are reinvested in Independent's mission of jour-
nalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First

community's deliberation of public issues.


pruning with me. In every case I am the bet-
ter for it. My prayer now is that he will do the
pruning early, as soon as it is needed.
Our personal quality of life, however is
not the core reason for the pruning; it is so
that we can bear more fruit. "Bearing fruit,"
biblically, means to know God through Je-
sus, to live in a relationship with the living
Jesus, and to share our knowledge of and
relationship with him with other people.
Living a fruitful life is to live a life that is filled
with peace, satisfaction and joy. If your life
seems to you to be pointless, purposeless,
without satisfaction, fruitless and frustrating,
there is hope and help. You have a standing
personal invitation from Jesus to be trans-
formed into a new person. If you want help
to accept the invitation, talk to a Christian
friend, a pastor, or even show up in church.
The rest of your life is far too precious a thing
to waste!

ticle and the scripture, John 15.1-8, will be

Caloosa Baptist to host



Rev. Billy Graham


Caloosa Baptist is pleased to have Rev.
Billy Graham, a native of Fort Worth, Texas,
to preach on Sunday morning and evening,
May 17. The services will be at 10:30 a.m.
and 6 p.m. All are invited.
Billy is committed to the ministry of evan-
gelism, missions and teaching. His commit
ment to that calling is an amplification of
a Biblical principal found in 2 Corinthians
12:9. It reads, "My grace is sufficient for thee;
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly, therefore, will I rather glory in
my infirmities, that the power of Christ may
rest upon me." Simply put, the verse explains
that the weaker we are, the greater our need
for God; and thus, the more of His power we
can experience.
In Billy's case, that weakness began at
birth. He was diagnosed as having Muscular
Dystrophy, in which he would be confined
to a wheelchair, with a life expectancy of
only 8 years. He was also destined to a life
of legal blindness. But the absence of eyes
that see and legs that walk were not enough
to keep Billy Graham from becoming what
he believes a Sovereign God had designed
for him.
Billy feels his life really began at the age
of 28. Though an active church member,
because of Billy's physical handicaps, dis-
couragement and depression were his con
stant companions. No matter what he tried,
nothing in this life could fill the sense of
emptiness and isolation that so consumed
his every thought. Finally in desperation,
Billy cried out to God for the peace that he
longed to find. Accepting God's gift of eter
nal life through faith in Jesus Christ brought
to Billy a joy and purpose to life that all of
the attractions and distractions of this world
could not give.
Billy has sensed God's hand upon his life
leading him to a ministry of teaching, preach
ing and singing the unchangeable truths of
the Word of God to an ever changing world.
For Billy realizes that though heaven and
earth may pass away, God's Word will abide
forever.
Billy as been as Associate Pastor, a
member of a contemporary Christian mu-
sic group, a daily speaker for the Practical
Christian Living radio broadcast, Chaplain

Heartworm


disease: Part II

My last column attempted to provide
a brief overview of Heartworm disease in
dogs and cats citing similarities and differ-
ences in the response of these pets to this
parasite. With dogs the severity of the prob-
lem is usually number driven, worm burden
being key. Cats, on the other hand, have few
worms, but when symptoms occur, they can
be severe and life-threatening. OK, you've
just been handed a diagnosis of Heartworm
infection that not only indicates the pres-
ence of the parasite but also the relative
worm load. Now what? Your veterinarian
will be able to provide you with information
and advice to help with your decision. Do
nothing rash. There are likely a number of
ways to successfully address the problem at
hand. In the case of your cat, the respiratory
symptoms need to be dealt with. Assuming
success there, an ivermectin type monthly
control medication would be appropriate to
keep new Heartworms from reaching matu-
rity. To my knowledge, treatment to kill the
adult worms is not yet a safe option. Remain
vigilant for the return of respiratory distress.
You have more options where your dog
is concerned. Again, rely on your vet's expe-
rience. As with your cat, address any respi-
ratory distress and then start an ivermectin
type preventative. These are safe in the face
of a Heartworm infection, even with the
presence of microfilaria (the "Heartworm
babies") in the bloodstream. Once your dog
is stable, you can decide how to proceed.
Not all dogs have to be treated! Old and de-
bilitated dogs probably should not be. Adult
Heartworms have a normal lifespan of 2-5
years, shorter when exposed to an ivermec-


tin preventa
tive It comes
down to this:
Is it better to
kill the adult
Heartworms
all at once
(or in stages
in the case of
heavy infes
tation) or let
them die off
by natural at-
trition? There are pros and cons to either ap-
proach and these decisions should be made
on a case by case basis. If you decide on
treatment, remember that confined rest with
short leash walks only for up to a month is
key to preventing complications from dead
Heartworms. Talk to your vet. Next: The
ounce of prevention.
Remember: If you scratch a dog you'll
find.....a permanent job.

Christ the King received an organ donation from Mrs. Nerma Lloyd, who
wanted to give her husband's organ to a church. The congregation of Christ
the King are very pleased to be the lucky recipients. The church decided
to give its old organ to Grandma's Grove, since a number of members live
there. Pictured are Pat and Glenn Klopfenstein, Bill and Shirley Brown, Glenn

Swine Flu: Update for


Hendry and Glades counties


Currently there are five confirmed cases
of Swine Flu (H IN 1) in Florida. Two of those
cases are in Lee County. There is no vac-
cine available right now to protect against
swine flu, but there is antiviral medication
available to treat any confirmed cases. A toll
free information line has been established to
address an increasing number of calls from
the public requesting Swine Flu informa-
tion. The number is: 1-800-342-3557 and it is
open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments are working closely with
School Administration, Emergency Manage
ment, Health Care Providers, and the com-
munity to ensure that the communication
of information and updates are issued in
a timely manner. The current strategy is to
educate the public on how to protect your-
self and what to do if you are sick. For your
protection, please do the following:
Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or otherwise appear ill.
Wash hands frequently with soap &
water to lessen the spread of any respiratory
illnesses.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tis-
sue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the
tissue in the trash after you use it.
If you get sick with influenza, it is rec-


ommended that you stay home from work
or school and limit contact with others to
keep from infecting them.
The symptoms of swine flu in people are
very similar to the symptoms of regular sea
sonal flu and include:
-Fever (over 100 degrees F), cough, sore
throat, body aches, headache, chills, fa-
tigue.
Some people have reported diarrhea and
vomiting associated with swine flu.
If you experience any of the above symp-
toms, please call your health care provider
first and discuss whether you need to be
seen in their office, emergency department
or stay home. People with respiratory illness
should stay home from work or school to
avoid spreading infections, including influ-
enza, to others in the community. People
with influenza virus infection should be
considered potentially contagious as long as
they are symptomatic and possible for up to
7 days following illness onset. Germs can be
spread when a person touches something
that is contaminated with germs and then
touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
If you have any questions, please contact
your healthcare provider.

DAV honors members


Disabled American Veterans Chapter 144
Commander Steve Williams surprised the
membership when he handed out awards
to members at the annual appreciation din-
ner.Receiving awards for their dedication
to the DAV and the community were, John
Schall, Robert Schall and Millard Wagnon.
Joe Oliver received a special award for his
dedication to the DAV community market.
Joe arrives at the market every Saturday
morning at 4:30. He keeps order until the
commander arrives with the golf cart at 6:00.
Then he's off, putting up signs and banners
and then makes the coffee while the com-
mander parks the vendors. Joe also takes
over as market director when Commander
Williams is absent. Joe and Steve are at the
market until after 2:00 p.m.
All the members receiving awards work
at the market, collecting funds, traffic con
trol and security patrol.
Ron Costa received an award for his help
with the market parking lot. Commander
Williams commented that the awards were
long over due, saying we get so busy doing
for others that we forget to honor the people
who make what we do possible.


DAV van drivers Bruce Boyle, Donald
Lownds, Ken Dale and Greg Sorensen re-
ceived awards for their dedication to the
Hendry County Veterans transport program.
Commander Williams stated that at times it
takes the patience of a saint, a mother's in-
tuition and a bartender's ear to complete the
round trip to the VA clinics.
