The LaBelle High School Class of 2009 Valedicto-
rian Hobbs Crockett said he reached that milestone
by challenging himself to succeed. With a GPA of
4.66, he is going to be attending College of William
and Mary in Virginia next fall. He is undecided about
his major. Hobbs is thankful for his family especial
ly his dad, mom, brother and friends for their love
and continuous support and looks forward to a life-
time of new challenges and opportunities. A quote
from Theodore Roosevelt that has inspired Hobbs:
"Far better is to dare mighty things, to win glorious
triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to
rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor
suffer much because they live in the gray twilight
that knows neither victory nor defeat."
"Always aim high. Don't settle for less and allow
yourself to be great," that's LHS 2009 Salutatorian
Chelsey Ramos' advice. Chelsey is graduating with
a GPA of 4.64 she has succeeded by working hard,
having the support from her family and friends and
striving to "be the best she can be." Chelsey will be
attending the University of Notre Dame in Indiana
where she will major in psychology. Helping others
is her main goal.
Graduation is 8 p.m. Friday, May 29, at the foot-
ball field.

An elderly woman was taken
into protective custody May 19
after sheriff's personnel say they
found her living conditions deplor-
able. The 82-year-old woman, who
suffers from several ailments, was
in the care of her daughter, Penny
Sue Barrow Noel, age 59, and her
grandson, Gregory Paul Swan, age
22, who is also Ms. Noel's neph-
ew.
Deputy Larry Preece was the
first to arrive at 100 N. Cypress Ave.
after receiving a call for help. Upon
arrival, deputies found the victim
yelling through her bathroom win-
dow, saying she was locked in her
home alone. After speaking with
the woman's daughter they were
allowed entry.
According to sheriff's reports,
the home was "cluttered and dis-
gusting to the point it was no lon-
ger a healthy environment..."
The report states that animal
excrement and urine was through
out the house in large quanti-
ties, on the walls, tracked into the
carpet and onto linoleum. Geese
and ducks were kept in a glassed
atrium area, surrounded by the rest
of the house. Rats walked openly
through the area.
Reports state the victim's room
was littered with clothing and the
toilet had dried excrement on the
seat, outside the bowl and on the
floor. There were dirty dishes and
uneaten food on the kitchen coun-
ters. Garbage littered the floors
and the victim was wearing soiled

Planning process in Pioneer


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The mid-county community of Pioneer
Plantation is the latest area to apply the
communal concept to planning its future.
Members came together May 11 at a Pioneer
Plantation Homeowners Association meet-
ing to kick off that process.
Hendry County Planner Vince Cautero
first explained that planning a community's
future is a two-step process: first address
ing land use, then more specific zoning is
sues. Mr. Cautero brought color coded maps
showing Pioneer's current land uses, pro-
viding a base for long range planning.
Surrounded mainly by agriculture, the
community has some commercial areas
on SR 80 and also inside the "heart" of the
subdivision, the rural residential area several
miles south of the highway. The community
includes a recreational area for the commu-
nity park and center.
Mr. Cautero said that zoning is a tool for
a community to decide how and where it
should grow. At this time, A-2, general agri-
culture, with a density of 1 unit per 5 acres,
surrounds Pioneer Plantation. Rural Resi-
dential zoning, which includes most of what
is regarded as the Pioneer community, has
a density of one unit per two acres. In addi
tion, the community has about four pieces
of commercially zoned lots at this time.
The community of Felda on SR 29S, is
about two years into its planning process.
Mr. Cautero said residents there are opposed
to commercial anywhere in their communi-
ty outside of 500 feet on either side of SR 20.
They also have approved barbed wire fences
and are working on a theme for commercial
architecture within the Felda community.
They are also opposed to "clustering," in
which developments may exceed density
requirements in specific places as long as
they don't exceed the overall limits for that
parcel.
They also learned that they can create a
special category for Pioneer's needs, if they
choose.
The placement of commercial zoning is a
big issue for this rural community.
The evening ended with an exercise in
"dotmocracy." The audience made sugges-
tions of what is most important to them,
which were posted on sheets of paper


On The Price

of Freedom

By Father Dennis O'Brien,
UNITED States Marine Corps
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who
has given us freedom of the press,
It is the soldier, not the poet who has
given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier not the campus orga-
nizer who has given us the freedom to
demonstrate.
It is the soldier who salutes the flag,
the soldier who serves beneath the flag,
the soldier whose coffin is draped by the
flag, and it's the soldier who allows the
protester to burn the flag.


around the room. Each person present was
given three color coded dots to "vote" for
their individual priorities.
Issues posted included: additional in-
gress/egress to and from the community,
better drainage, lighting, public safety, clear-
ing out abandoned buildings, illegal dump-
ing, controlling ATVs, tennis courts, animal
control, code enforcement, converting the
old landfill to nature park and enforcement
of house number regulations.
Mr. Cautero promised to help shepherd
the community through the on-going pro-
cess.
In other business, Pioneer residents ex
pressed displeasure when they heard about
a prospective housing development north of
Pioneer. Developer Dean Daniels appeared
to explain his plans to build 60-80 medium
to upper price residences on 170 acres just
north of Pioneer. Access would be on Hen-
dry Isles Blvd., just about a half mile south
of SR 80, the only access point to the com-
munity.
Mr. Daniels said he would build one
home at a time, taking about 10-15 years to
build out. First, he needs county approval
for a mining operation to remove fill and to
make 30-35' deep lakes for the subdivision.
Tommy Perry of Johnson Engineering ac-
companied Mr. Daniels, and said PUD zon-
ing is required in order to sell the dirt from
the mining operation. The developer would
have to apply to the county and SFWMD for
permits and promised that the operation
would require no blasting.
He also promised to keep down dust
through buffers and setbacks and would be
responsible, along with the county, for fixing
any road damage his trucks caused. He esti-
mated needing some 90 trucks per day 180
trips to remove the fill.
He also promised to work with the
school board to make bus stops in the vicin
ity safer and to limit hours of operation. Still,
residents were unimpressed with his plans,
worried about pollution from dust, traffic
congestion and possible accidents blocking
access to the community. They were ada-
mant that there must be some benefit to the
community for them to approve the plan.
A couple planning to breed parrots on
ten acres at 770 Riviera got a better recep-
tion. The couple owns an indoor aviary in
Miami and purchased the Pioneer property
in November to establish an outdoor facility.
They're planning a 15x100' main cage with
inside partitions. They stressed that they are
not bird importers but sell to local outlets.

New trailer, program to improve bicycling fun and safety for everyone


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
When you're a kid, not much compares
to the fun and freedom of riding your bike
down the road with the wind blowing
through your hair. It's the first taste of self re-
liance for many kids, opening up the world
a little bit at a time.
It's a great time of life, but the key to keep-
ing it that way is safety. Thanks to the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT), the


county has a new training tool designed to
maximize bicycle safety.
The county has received a 20 foot Safe
Route to School Bicycle Rodeo Trailer,
through the efforts of the Traffic Safety
Team. Part of a statewide effort, the trailer
is crammed with 30 bicycles and training
equipment to put on bike rodeos at most any
suitable location throughout the county.
Parked at the sheriff's office, the trailer
can be hauled by Sgt. Barbara Brown and
set up at community events like Earth Day or

walking through the feces and urine. A cat
litter box was overflowing.
The birds were kept in a cage in which
dried feces and feathers were several inches
deep. The duck and geese had little ventila-

also walking in their own excrement.
The animals are being cared for at the

the animals were in fair physical condition,
but "their living conditions were unaccept-
able."
Noel and Swan were arrested May 19
for neglect of an elderly disabled adult with
no great harm and for causing cruel death
or suffering to animals. Both have been re-
leased on $15,000 bond.

Letter to the Editor


Honor Memorial Day
I cannot begin to tell you how very dis
appointed i was in the latest edition of the
newspaper. There was no mention of any
Memorial Day activities scheduled for this
weekend. Also, no mention of what Memo-
rial Day stands for this weekend.
From General John Logan's Memo-
rial Day Order No. 11 Headquarters, Grand
Army of the Republic, Washington, D.C. May
5, 1868, Article No. 2 states:
"It is the purpose of the Commander-In-
Chief to inaugurate this observance with
the hope it will be kept up from year to year
while a survivor of the war remains to honor
the memory of his departed comrades.
He earnestly desires the public press
to call attention to the order, and lend it's
friendly aid in brining it to the notice ofcom-
rades in all parts of t he country in time for
simultaneous comp,iance therewith."
I sit here a very sad and disappointed pa
triotic American that those who made the
ultimatae sacrifice have been forgotten by
many.

"Shock and Awe" legislative actions, even
"Feudalism" can't help but result in "Futil-
eism." And if that isn't enough to "French"
your fries, just follow the "Feuds" going on
in Congress, in the name of "governing."
In the "Obamanation," "change" con-
tinues to be the "Pipers" one-note, operatic
solo. Like the little boy who swallowed some
coins, and was hospitalized, the economy,
having been fed millions of coins, has seen
"No Change Passed Yet." No "change" yet, if
you don't happen to be one of the millons
of people who have lost their jobs and, for
the first times in their lives, having to go on
unemployment to try and survive.
It has been a real learning experience to
witness how obsessed the general public
and media continue to be with Obama. In
my humble opinion, it's like the obsession
that goes with watching a train wreck, until
you discover that you will be taxed to replace
the train and get it back in operation. That's
why I continue to "assess", rather than "ob
sess" over this "one-note" phenomenon.
With his nationalization of the financial
institutions, and automotive industries, he
has signaled the real "change" he intends to
implement across all the existing business
communities, and that "change" is to "priva-
tize the profits and socialize the losses."
To "change" is to grow, is to progress, not
to regress and to distress!

The Air We Breathe


By Jeni Dyess
Most of us are familiar with second hand
smoke; the combination of smoke coming
off the lit end of a cigarette or cigar and what
a smoker exhales that you see and smell in
the air. Have you ever stood in a check out
line and known there was a smoker nearby,
even though no one was smoking in the
room? Have you walked into a room that
had the unmistakable smell of stale tobacco
smoke lingering, even while a fan was mov-
ing the air? This is what researchers are now
calling third-hand smoke. It is the toxins left
behind even after a cigarette or cigar is put
out.
Tobacco smoke contains gases and small
particles that deposit on every surface they
come in contact with, including the smok
er's hair and clothing. These particles get
into building surfaces such as walls, carpet,
curtains and ventilation systems and vehicle
surfaces such as upholstery and A/C sys-
tems. Second and third hand smoke pose
serious health risks to our kids and our pets,
especially those who live in homes or ride
in cars with smokers. Children face a higher
risk than adults of the negative effects of
both second and third-hand smoke because
their body is still developing physically and
their breathing rate is faster than that of an
adult. A child's breathing rate ranges be-
tween 20-60 breaths per minute up until
age 5, with newborns breathing as much as
60 breaths per minute, compared to adults
who breathe 14-18 times per minute. When
the air is tainted with tobacco smoke young,
developing lungs take in a much higher con
centration of toxins than older lungs do.
Babies, young children and the pets we
have in our homes depend on us to provide
them with a healthy environment to grow
up and live in. They have less control over
their surroundings, and can't always move
to another room because the air is smoky or
the floor contaminated with the toxic resi
due of tobacco smoke. Parents, one of the
best things you can do to keep your children,
yourselves, and everyone else in your family
healthy is to make your home and vehicles
smoke free!
Asthma, lung infections and ear infec-
tions are more common in children who are
around smokers. Studies have also shown
significant health threats to dogs, cats and
birds through higher rates of cancer associ
ated with breathing tobacco smoke. Some

of these may become life threatening, oth
ers seem like small problems but add up
quickly when you consider the expenses
doctor visits, vet bills, medicines, lost school
time and lost work time for the parent who
takes the child or pet to the doctor. In the
U.S. about 35 percent of our children live
in homes where family members or visitors
smoked on a regular basis. Most of us spend
more time at home than we do anywhere
else. Americans also spend lots of time in
their cars, where hazardous levels of smoke
can build up quickly. This can be especially
harmful to children and pets.

Witches Brew


By Pudge Lehman
When baking a cake use Mountain Dew,
Ginger Ale, seltzer water or the cheaper
brands of light colored soda makes it extra
moist.
If you insist on slicing strawberries, use
an egg slicer. Quick and easy. I just pop
them into the ol' pie hole.
When you need to blot grease from
cooked ground beef or sausage use the
heel of your loaf of bread. No one seems to
want that slice. For better browning of meat
and chicken always pat it dry with a paper
towel.
We all should wash the tops of cans...
all cans...before opening but who washes
bananas? I do since reading an article that
reminds us how they are handled. Roaches,
when the rotten ones leak. Ship rats, etc.
I saw a T-shirt that I just must have....
Spread across the front were the words, "No
one ever suspects the short ones!"

Building wrestlers
Bushi-Kan Dojo celebrates 20th Cowboy Youth Wrestling Club is offering
one year club membership for $30. Partici


The Bushi-Kan Dojo of SW Florida is cel-
ebrating its 20th year in LaBelle, with excit-
ing events planned all year.
Originally founded by Joe Bass, Kyoshi
and Jan Bass, Renshi (6th dan), at the local
YMCA, under the Bedingfields.
Now called the LaBelle Program Center,
the classes are still going strong, teaching
martial arts skills and life lessons to students
of all ages.
According to Ms. Bass, "LaBelle is not a
big town, and offering activities to the com-
munity for all ages is something I feel is
important. I've always enjoyed the young
people here, and have had the pleasure of
starting them at young ages, and seeing them
return with children of their own. The great-
est reward has been watching them grow
into responsible, self confident adults."
Ms. Bass and Tim Haffner, Sensei (4th
dan), (Bushi-Kan's Aikido instructor) re-
turned recently from a trip to Japan where
both trained at the Aikikai, world aikido
headquarters in Tokyo, and at the Misasagi
Kai headquarters in Osaka.
"The opportunity to meet the head fam-
ily of the art that you have dedicated years
of training, study and sharing all aspects
with others, really gives you the feeling that
each of us play an important part in helping
people all over the world become better in-
dividuals. Traditional martial arts teaches so
much more than just combat skills."
Some of the events so far this year have
included a Martial Arts tournament in Cape
Coral, a first time for many that competed.
Students also attended a sparring seminar at
the Cape Coral Karate Academy, and a ka-


rate camp during their spring break.
They also experienced a taste of Japan
when the school took a day trip to the Japa-
nese Gardens for the big annual celebration
of the Hasume Fair, (First Day of Spring).
The fair had various performances, in
cluding several martial arts demonstrations,
various fun events, Japanese food and items
to buy.
This is an annual event the dojo attends
each year to learn about the culture and his-
tory of Japan.
Special classes given by master instruc-
tors have been offered at the Bushi-Kan
throughout the year.
Ninjutsu, iaido-kendo and aikido have
been some of the forms the students have
been able to receive experience first hand.
More of these are scheduled in June.
"We have been fortunate to have some
of the best instructors in the country come
to LaBelle and share their knowledge," Ms.
Bass said.
New this year, more women have been
attending classes. A special all women's
class is being scheduled at this time.
If interested, please call the LaBelle Pro-
gram Center or Ms. Bass at 239 410-0616.
Jenny Milligan, one of the dojo's assistant
instructors, has returned from college for
the summer.
She has offered to teach a cardio class
and is a perfect example of a toned body.
There are a few available openings to
join the dojo at this time and prices are al-
ways reasonable.
If interested, please contact Jan Bass at
239 410-0616.

and when he walked out of the McD's with his food in hand, he got mobbed!
But he was very cool, very down to earth and gave a few more minutes for au-
tographs and pictures. What a cool guy he is! That's McD's manager Priscilla
Williamson Hicks with the hip hop star who was apparently in the area for tour
dates in Cape Coral and West Palm Beach.

Beef'O'Brady's receives award


The Hendry County School Board re-
cently honored Beef'O'Brady's of Clewiston
as 2009 Business of the Year. Owner Kersten
Maxson is thankful for the county's recogni-
tion and gives the credit to a very hard work-
ing team behind the scenes. "Our staff of
cooks and servers really cares about serving
our community and they put forth very spe-
cial efforts to coordinate with school events
and activities," said Maxson.
Since the family restaurant first opened in
March of 2007, Beef'O'Brady's has been ac-
tively involved in numerous educational pro-
motions for Hendry schools. Some of their
ongoing partnerships include their participa-
tion in the CHS Gold Card Program and the
CMS Literacy Initiatives Program. For both
programs, Beef's has traditionally hosted
Tuesday night fund-raisers in the restaurant
allowing customers to support local schools.
Also, as a partner in education, O'Brady's
provides complimentary Certificates of Merit
for every school teacher who wishes to use
them as classroom awards.
"It is a pleasure to coordinate with cre-
ative educators who challenge their students
to do their best by offering good rewards
and incentives," says Maxson, a former ac
complished educator. Last year, Eastside
and Westside Elementary school celebrated
high achievement on their FCAT Tests with a
luncheon at Beef's.
Beef's promotes education in the res
taurant, in the classroom and out in the
community. Providing food donations and
volunteer food service is a treat for Beef's
staff. Employees are eager to sign up for

sica Maxson at the Barron House in
LaBelle at the United Way Dinner and
Silent Auction. As part of their ongo-
ing partnerships, Beef 'O'Brady's had
a wonderful time participating in the
community fund-raiser!

all outdoor events such as the Clewiston
Christian School Skeet Shoot and the Tiger
Booster Golf Tournament. "We are so fortu-
nate to have a pro-community team that en-
joys doing their job and beyond that," says
Maxson whose team also received the 2007
Business.
Maxson further adds, "we try to steer
clear of hiring people who are content with
doing the least amount possible. It takes
dynamic teamwork to serve a community."
Beef'O'Brady's shall expand and duplicate
supportive educational efforts in LaBelle,
which is the future site of the Maxson's next
restaurant's franchise.

Expansion completed

Riverside Retreat is pleased to announce the completion of two
projects that will enhance guest experiences for years to come. The
Lockmiller Program Center is a 5'000 sq. foot facility with a 150-seat
auditorium and five classrooms. Each classroom is equipped with
a computer ready flatscreen. The auditorium has a state of the art
AV system ready for speakers, praise teams and more. Perhaps the
best feature of the facility is the outside. Situated parallel to the Ca-
loosahatchee, the covered porch is complete with rocking chairs for
guests to enjoy the river breeze and watch the boats go by. From the
comfort of the air conditioned auditorium, guests have a 300 degree
view of river and camp.
Their second project enhances the first one. The entire 1/2 mile
river edge of Riverside Retreat has been sloped, sodded and seeded.
30 native trees, including 16 live oaks and 25 cypress, have been
planted along the bank. Generations of guests will be able to walk
the river and enjoy the shade.
Riverside Retreat is a non-profit camping facility with a variety of
buildings able to house groups from 10 to 150. They have tent sites,
bunkhouses, large group lodges and RV space. Church groups, fam-
ily reunions, karate groups, school groups and so much more uti
lize the facility. Guests from all over the United States have visited,
enjoying the nature trails, biking, kayaking, low ropes course and
other activities offered by staff. Located on County Road 78 between
Alva and LaBelle, it is a convenient drive from all around Southwest
Florida.

The team will be leaving for New Orleans

day nights: one May 27 at 6:00 p.m. and one
June 3 at 6:00 p.m. If you would like to help
raise funds for this trip you may attend ei-
ther dinner, eat-in or take out. Just call the
church at 675-2171 by the Monday before to
make a reservation.
If you would like to make a contribution
to the mission trip you may by sponsoring
a team member for $300.00, or by sending
in a donation to the church at PO Box 369,
LaBelle, FL 33935. Make sure to mark your
check "New Orleans". If you would like to
help the mission team but cannot contribute
financially, we are asking for prayers for the
team.
The First Baptist Church of LaBelle is lo-
cated at 330 North Main Street, LaBelle, FL.
We have services every Sunday at 11 AM and
6 PM and every Wednesday at 7 PM. Any one
is welcome.

New Veterans Park nears completion


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The new Veterans Park across from the
Courthouse seems to change almost daily.
In recent weeks the brick pavers have been
laid. These will eventually honor individual
veterans as people have their loved ones'
names, military branch and dates of service
inscribed on them.
Most recently concrete sidewalks have
been laid. Again donations have played a
big part in making it happen. LaBelle's Di-
versified Concrete and Fort Myers Eagle
Ready Mix each donated half the concrete
poured so far. Benches have been donated
by the LaBelle Rotary Club so folks can sit
in the little park while enjoying the beautiful


weather and reminiscing about their loved
one. Electric and water service are also com-
ing along.
Look forward to a beautiful tile eagle to
be the centerpiece of the park, donated by
Fort Myers Harley-Davidson. Oaks and sil-
ver palmettoes have already been added to
beautify the spot, courtesy of the Masonic
Lodge.
A combination of natural serenity and pa-
triotic art, memorials will be placed around
the site's core for each of America's 20th
Century conflicts from World War I to Af-
ghanistan and Iraq.
The American flag, along with the flags of
the State of Florida, VFW, American Legion
and DAV will occupy a place of honor.


Also, VFW 10100 is planning a fundraiser
July 25 in honor of LaBelle sons Army Chief
Warrant Officer Robert Hammett Jr., lost in
Iraq last June 24, and Marine Staff Sergeant
Chris Strickland, who died in Afghanistan
the following day. The first bricks to be laid
at the new memorial will be in their honor,
as well as Nicholas Cutinha who earned the
Medal of Honor in Viet Nam. Cutinha is bur-
ied at Fort Denaud Cemetery.
Memorial bricks may be purchased for
$100 each. If you would like to purchase one
in honor of your special veteran, please call
Bill Davis at 675-8300.
