Tough times for big cats
By Patty Brant
The year 2009 has been a
tough one thus far for Florida
Panthers in Southwest Florida. As
of Memorial Day, a total of nine
have been killed locally. Most
were struck by vehicles.
Marc Criffield, who has been
working on the Fish and Wildlife
Commission's Florida Panther
Research project for almost two
years, said there are an estimated
100 Florida panthers south of the
In the 2008 calendar year, the
FWC panther team documented
the deaths of a total of 22 free
ranging panthers, including two
newborn kittens. Of those, 10
were road kills and three died as
the result of intraspecies aggres
sion (fighting between two terri-
torial cats). The cause of death for
the other nine cats is unknown.
Thirteen of the dead cats were
male, nine female.
Mr. Criffield said it looks like
the number of panther deaths
may surpass last year's. Howev-
er, he added that panther deaths
seem to come in clusters, possi-
bly related to the seasonal move
ment of the big cats. There may
not be any more mortalities for
According to the Conser-
vancy of Southwest Florida Web
site, "intraspecific aggression"
is a common cause of death for
Florida panthers. The Web site
states that, since 1981 when ra-

On Thursday June 11, 2009 Hen-
dry County Authorities participated
in a coordinated statewide law en-
forcement effort, Operation Eagle
Claw, aimed at dismantling suspect-
ed hydroponic marijuana grow lab-
oratories throughout the State of
Florida. According to the United
States Attorney's Office, South
Florida HIDTA (High Intensity
Drug Trafficking Area) along with
the United State Attorney for the
Southern District of Florida, Miami-
Dade Police Department and Mi-
ami-Dade State Attorney created a
coalition of federal, state and local
law enforcement agencies in 67
Florida counties and select counties
in Georgia to target hydroponic
grow houses. State and National
agencies such as the FBI, ICE and
ATF were present at Command
posts stationed throughout Florida
and available to law enforcement
personnel dealing within their speci-
Hendry County Sheriff's Of-
fice served three separate search
warrants, confiscating approxi-
mately 320 pounds of marijuana,
178 plants, two firearms, and two
physical arrests with additional ar-
rests anticipated. The street value

of the confiscated marijuana is estimated
at approximately $1,344,000. All three loca-
tions were completely dismantled.
Statewide, Operation Eagle Claw snagged
6,828 marijuana plants, 45 firearms, and the
arrests of 142 people working at 120 grow
houses. Jeffrey Sloman, acting U.S. attorney
for the Southern District of Florida, said the
seized plants have an estimated street value
of $30.7 million.
The residential marijuana grow houses
can pose risk to their neighbors. Individuals
living in these conditions place themselves
and others in severe danger including physi-
cal injury from explosions, toxic fumes, en
vironmental hazards, electrocution, and en
danger the safety of children. This year while
tracking the residential grow houses officers
included the number of homes where chil-
dren were present; statistics show that out
of the 120 homes searched and dismantled,
15 of the homes had children present; some
resided in rooms adjacent to the area where
marijuana is being grown.
"Residential marijuana grow house oper-
ations often lead to an increase in violence,
crime and hazardous conditions to the sur
rounding neighborhoods," acting U.S. Attor
ney Jeffrey Sloman said in a release. Vio-
lent crimes, including burglaries and home
invasions are often a result of the residential
marijuana grow house.
Hendry County deputies searched the
residence of 6049 Acorn, in Port LaBelle.
They confiscated 65 marijuana plants from
the indoor marijuana grow house.
Next the home at 5005 Pike Lane in La-
Belle was searched and 58 plants were con
fiscated, netting 172.8 pounds of marijuana.
Deputies arrested 59 year old Roberto Sierra,
and 45 year old Rosa Suarez Vazquez both
parties were charged with Producing Mari
juana, Trafficking Marijuana in excess of 25
Ibs. or 300 plants or more, and Possession
and/or use of Narcotic Equipment, bond
was set at $76,000.00 each. Both Sierra and
Suarez were released on June 12, 2009.
A building located at 6115 Cuba Trail, La-
Belle, a rural agricultural orange grove prop-
erty near the east end of Sears Road was also
the subject of a search warrant. Investiga-
tors discovered a sophisticated indoor mari-
juana cultivation lab nestled deep within the
orange grove, 56 plants and approximately
93 pounds of marijuana were seized from
the facility. Investigators also seized two ri-
fles from the residence believed to be linked
to the marijuana grow and under the control
of Jaime N. Perle of LaBelle.
It is worth noting that these are still ongo-
ing investigations and additional arrests are
Sheriff Whidden stated, "It has been my
intention to hit them where it hurts, in the
wallet. We are not only going after the small
time dealers, we're going after large scale
distributors as well."
Since January 2009, Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office has dismantled seven residences
and arrested seven different individuals.

dio-tagging was initiated, 44 percent of dead
panthers were killed in fights with another
panther. As territorial animals, males require
some 200 square miles to roam, while fe-
males are content with a minimum of 75
This requirement for large territories
is the reason why the state is requiring so
much land be set aside for Florida panther
Experts say that corridors must be pro-
vided for panthers since development has
created physical boundaries prohibiting
their movement from one conservation area
The Florida panther has been on the En-
dangered Species list since 1967. Carcasses
of dead panthers are necropsied and the hide
and skeleton archived at the Florida Muse-
um of Natural History. During the necropsy,
researchers gather information about how
the cat died and the general health of the
population, Mr. Criffield said.
For instance, he explained that in the ear-
ly '90s, many panthers were found to have
holes between their heart chambers. With
just about 30-50 of the big cats in Southwest
Florida at that time, in-breeding caused the
numbers of animals with this defect to in
crease alarmingly. Female cats were brought
in from Texas to increase the gene pool and
the number of cats showing the heart defect
The panther team sends carcasses and
skeletons to the Florida Museum of Natural
History for storage so future generations will
have access to information on these big cats
and possibly improve diagnostic capabilities

Two charged with child neglect
Sheriff's Office handles
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Hendry County Sheriff's Office was
busy with several child neglect cases recent-
ly. Two women were arrested on charges
that they were neglectful of their children.
S.O.: Suspect leaves five-year-old, 22-
month-old home alone
When his five-year-old daughter told
him she was being left alone at her house
for hours at a time with her 22-month-old
brother, the father was shocked.
Later, as he drove to the home of the
child's mother and honked the horn, the
man was surprised to see the two children
inside the home with no adult to supervise
Deputies responding to the call on June
11 at a residence on Evans Road describe the
child walking around the home with no one
except the complainant inside. She showed
deputies to the bedroom, where her sibling
was sleeping on the bed.
According to the girl, her mother leaves
the home for work everyday at around 3
p.m., and the children are normally left on
their own for about two hours, according to
the report. At that time, either the mother,
or the second suspect -- who is the infant's
father -- returns.
The deputies described the home as be-
ing mostly clean, save for a few dead cock-
roaches near the front door, and a "sharp
steak knife on the kitchen table that was
According to the report, both children ap-
peared to be clean, and there was plenty of
food in the refrigerator.
Still, the father of the girl did not feel ei-
ther of the children should have been left
Additionally, the landlord told deputies
she had already warned the suspect not
to leave the children alone, threatening to
make her move out if she did. According to
her, on one occasion the children walked
into a neighbor's house while they were left
When their mother arrived at the scene,
she reportedly told deputies she had been
called in to work, but had notified her mother
and didn't know her mother never showed
up for the children. She said she had never
left the children alone.
The suspect's mother told deputies that
she did receive a phone call, but she "was
shopping and could not go get the kids," ac-
cording to the report.
Based on the information, deputies said
the children were left on their own at 3 p.m.,
while the call was not made to their grand-
mother until 4 p.m. The deputy himself re-
ported being on the scene with the children
for more than an hour.
Nancy Arzola, 24, was arrested on charg-
es of child abuse. She was transported to the
Hendry County Jail.
S.O.: Suspect allowed marijuana to be
smoked inside car, with minor daughter
In a separate incident, deputies also
arrested Erika Lynn Cothern, 21, who is
charged with allowing individuals to smoke
marijuana inside her car, with her two-year-
old daughter present.
A deputy noticing a parked car near a
closed business on Fraser Avenue on June
8 approached to find the scent of marijuana
coming from inside the car, according to the
There were three other people inside the
Deputies searching the car found a metal
grinder/smoker that is commonly used to
grind down and smoke marijuana, along
with three clear bags with what appeared to
be marijuana substance and Xanax pills.
The suspect said the drugs did not belong
to her, and the occupants of the vehicle gave
statements about their ownership.
One of the passengers, Buck Thomas
Imhoff, 19, was arrested and charged with
drug possession. Cothern, the child's moth-
er, was charged with child neglect for failure
to "care for her daughter."
They were transported to the Hendry
County Jail for booking.

Father's Day A glimpse of one whom this day honors
By Barbara Oehlbeck
For 99 years, the third Sunday in June, this
year the 21st, has been designated to honor
and commemorate father and fatherhood. It
was in 1910 that Mrs. John Bruce Dodd of
Spokane, Washington, originated the obser
vance of Father's Day. Sometime later, the
custom spread throughout the United States
and Canada. Still later, in 1936, a national
Father's Day Committee was formed with
headquarters in New York City. Each year
the Father of the Year is elected by the com
mittee. A few notable chosen fathers include
Douglas MacArthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
and Harry S. Truman... Colin Powell, and, of
course, yours and mine...
Yet, what about those not so "notable",
that is, as the world designates "notables"?
Most of their names will never be known
or their accomplishments. But their influ-
ence in the lives of their children and their
children's children, could change the ways
of the world considerably. Any history book
will tell of the lives and accomplishments of
many of these fathers.
One life of one of those fathers no history
book will mention, is my own father of five.
After his death, among his cherished souve-
nirs, in an old, worn box simply labeled "to
keep", the following letter was found, un-
dated. It is from one of his children.
This is a love letter.
Since leaving the nest years ago, I've writ-
ten you about a lot of love in a lot of letters
concerning a lot of things.
Well, this one doesn't concern anything
except more love and admiration, profound
respect and thankfulness for you...not just
because you happen to be my father, but be-
cause of the person you happen to be.
This is not being written because of my
own personal experience with you but be-
cause of the countless daily deeds, endless
hours of work and untold worry you put in,
in order that we, your children, could have a
safe, warm home, good food and shoes, and
even pretty flowers and big trees to grow up
under. (And now that I know about "fighting
the tigers" of the world, I believe you and
Mama must have had the world's strongest
"dollar-stretcher" to do what you did with
the few dollars you had!)
The longer I live the more I hear from oth-
ers about your true goodness. Perhaps most
of all, you lived and demonstrated a faith
and a belief that was big enough and strong

enough to hold all of us up...not just when
we were small and growing, but in all the
years since we've all flown from yours and
Mama's nest. You see, we knew we were
safe and secure. It seems strange to think
of it now, yet I even remember some little
insignificant "uglies" at times in school, but
I always I knew everything would be alright
when I'd reach home! This is how all your
There's never a day that you aren't with
me...with us... in the garden, driving, cook-
ing, writing, or trying to figure out how to
make something or repair whatever quits
working. I expect you'd be surprised to
know how often Captain speaks of you...
always with great love and admiration.
I think so many times of waiting for you
to come home from the factory. I'd walk out
to the corner of Starling and Spring Streets
and sit on Mrs. Price's corner stone. I can
hear Mama now, "Don't you dare get off that
rock 'til your Daddy comes!" That stone was
a very rough seat. I think you said I was 6
or 7 then. And, when you were a little late,
I'd bite my lip until it hurt...you see, I was
"afraid" but didn't want you to know it.
I remember, too, going to the factory
to see you. This, of course, was after the
growing-up years, and those special Sun-
day mornings when we'd go to the farm
early, like six o'clock, to have breakfast with
Grandpa and Grandma. Don't we have a lot
of fine times to remember!
I find myself feeling sad for those who
don't have a fraction of the wonderfulness
that we have to remember. But it's far more
than just remembering. It's trying to live like
you, Daddy, you...fair and faithful, honest
and generous (maybe to a fault), truly all
giving, and always, always trying.
Thank you for believing and caring for
me, for your inexhaustible patience and all
the marvelous things you taught me, and for
your unending prayers.
Countless times I think of the things you
made from almost nothing, a little of this
and even less of that. Yet, whatever it was,
worked! And oh, the house that you re-
paired and kept in good condition through
all the years: plumbing, that happy old wood
range that was like a member of the family...
the roof, windows, that old car, my little red
wagon, and on and on. I laughed and cried
at the same time when I found out, years
later, that the reason you made us a unicycle
was not because it was different or a novelty,
but because you only had one wheel, and
Glenn W. Harding with his 1/25 scale
locomotive 2-4-2 Engine.
one wheel a bicycle does not make!
And the train that was also a member
of the family. Big enough to ride on the.flat
car, 16 inches between rails, locomotive and
tender 16 feet long, 37 inches to the top of
the cab, all built to scale, and you made it
from cast iron and rolled steel! One time I
recall overhearing that you started to build
the model when I was on the way. Naturally,
I would be a boy! But when I didn't turn
out to be a son you went right on building
the model anyway. Maybe you had a notion
that your two sons would come along a little
later. And they did.
Your extraordinary talent and ability in so
many areas has been my inspiration all my
life, as well as your day to-day, year-to year
stick-to-it-ness. I cherish every drop that I
hope rubbed off on me.
The other day, our close friend, Diana,
said, "I wish I could have known your father.
I know I would have loved him, and I know,
too, that you had in him what I never had...
really, never even knew about until I came
to know him through you and his letters to
Daddy, no letter, no words can ever ad-
equately say how much we both love you.
Yet somehow, we wanted to try to say it
again on Father's Day, and to tell you too,
how ever-thankful that out of all the world,
you are "our" father.
Although my father died in 1994, yet, he
truly remains in all our lives.
This letter was send to him the year be-
fore he passed away.

Inequietude, a worried or restless state
of mind. That's what 150 plus days in the
Obamanation has accomplished for me, and
a majority of the Obamanation subjects.
He has incessantly referenced his fiscal
policies as having their substance rooted in
how Franklin Roosevelt brought the econo
my back after the Depression, even coining
the phrase of having stimulus funds avail-
able for "shovel ready" projects.
Maybe so, but just in case you're interest-
ed, way before Roosevelt and Obama, his-
tory provides documentation that over five
thousand years ago, Moses said to the chil-
dren of Israel, "Pick up your shovels, mount
your asses and camels, and I will lead you to
the Promised Land."
Nearly eighty years ago President
Roosevelt said, Pick up your shovels, give up
your assets and light up a Camel, this is the
Now Obama is going to subsidize your
shovel, tax your assets. raise the price of
Camels, and nationalize the Promised
As you can tell, this "inquietude" is really
bugging me, particularly when I try to ratio-
nalize one of my Dad's favorite sayings, Faith
is not knowing what the future holds, but
knowing who holds your future."
One of the most troubling issues, to
date, has been the Federalizing of Chrysler
and GM, followed, recently by the newly
proposed Federal CAFE fuel efficiency stan-
dards. Now, far be it for me to trivialize the
magnitude of this latest "Houdini" act in
public, but I just ran across some startling
statistics in Golf Digest, involving alcohol as
an alternative fuel.
The study, conducted over a 3 year period
found that the average golfer walks about
900 miles a year. In the 900 miles, the av-
erage golfer consumes on average, a mini-
mum of 22 gallons of alcohol.
That means that with no "bailouts," no
environmental studies, and no "green" sub-
sidies and no other "stimulants", on average,
golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.
As a golfer. that makes me proud, kin-
da like a "hybrid", and unless the "New"
Chrysler and the "New-New" GM can mas-
ter the "long-drive", with a minimum of
"strokes", to "get out' of the "hole," they
might just as well make golf carts. Their va-
cated plant sites would provide more than
adequate golf course sites across the na

A minute of health
Sunday is Father's Day. This is the day we
honor fathers, much as we honored mothers
in May. It is also a day we use to encourage
fathers to focus on being
good fathers, not an easy
task in today's culture.
Kids face pressures and
temptations on a daily ba-
sis today that I simply don't
remember from growing
up many years ago. More
than ever, they need a clear
example of what it means FR Alan
to be an adult. And they Kelmereit
need to know that they are
loved and protected as well.
In our economic environment, with both
parents working, it is all to easy to work
hard and simply look for some down time
at home. Yet that home time is the most im-
portant time for a father, whether married or
single, to spend time with the kids, to help
them with the issues that concern them on
a daily basis.
Once again, I'll tell you, doing this has ab-
solutely nothing to do with how much time
is available. It is entirely a matter of priorities.
Fathers, you need to decide, quite intention-
ally, where your children fall on your list of
priorities. That, in turn, will determine how
much time you will spend with them.
The Bible is very clear that one of the
principal responsibilities of parents is to
raise their children well. From a spiritual per-
spective, that responsibility includes raising
them to know God, something you cannot
do if you do not know God yourself. In this
arena especially, there is lots of help avail-
able. There are any number of churches in
this area which are equipped and prepared
to help you to know God yourself, and to
raise your children to know God. If you don't
think this is important, check the stats on the
relationship of faith to troubled behavior. Fa-

thers, you need all the help you can get to
carry out one of the most important func-
tions you serve in society -raising good chil-
dren and churches are ready to help you
to do that well.
And grandfathers, your direct responsibil-
ity for the raising of your children have end-
ed (yes, I know it never completely ends!)
but you are in a unique to help your sons be
good fathers. You can encourage them, you
can be there to help with the kids as need
ed, and you can set an example of what it
means to be a good father. Even if you, like
me, would do some things differently from
your first time around as a father, that does
not mean you cannot set an example now.
Sit down with your sons and let them know
you did not do everything right, but that you
want to help them to do better. That will go
a long way in being a good grandfather. (Do-
ing this with your daughters is a good idea,
too, but this is a Father's Day article, after
Fathers, you have a great God-given op-
portunity to influence your kids for their
good. There is help available, and I know
you need as much as you can get take your
kids to church. And I pray that God will bless
each one of you.

Quit for your family's sake
By Valarie L. James
Hendry County Health Dept.
Approximately one in five people in the U.S. still smoke, despite its well-known and
highly publicized negative health effects, including cancer and heart disease. It harms
nearly every organ of the body. Each year, almost half a million Americans die from this
addiction. Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits for you and your loved
ones. There are many effective strategies out there to help someone quit smoking, but most
smokers don't use them. Proven interventions, such as assistance from a health-care pro-
vider, medications, and counseling, can increase a smoker's chance for success. Quitting
smoking is not easy, but it is worth the effort. For more information on how to Quit using
tobacco please call 674-4041 ext 128/143 or our FREE statewide Quit Line at 1-877-822-6669
(1-877-U CAN NOW).

LaBelle Cubs Win Tournament of
The LaBelle Cubs Junior baseball team won the Annual Tournament of Cham-
pions this past week for boys ages 13-15. The Cubs came into the tourna-
ment on a roll, winning The Annual Top Team Cassic a few week earlier. The
tournament was made up of the top local teams from Lehigh, San Carlos,
Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, Immokalee, and Alva. The Cubs did a
great job starting out the tournament with a 9-2 win over the San Carlos Red
Sox. The next opponent for the Cubs was Immokalee Indians, and the Cubs
won 9-4, keeping the Cubs in the winners bracket. The next opponent for
the Cubs was the host team Lehigh, and at game time, the Lehigh Yankees
team couldn't field enough players, so the Cubs moved on and waited to
see who they would play in the semi-finals. The San Carlos Red Sox played
their way out of the loser's bracket to face the Cubs in the semi-final game
with the Cubs only having to win the game to seal the championship, as
the Cubs had handed the Red Sox a loss at the begining of the tournament.
The championship game was a tough one as the Red Sox didn't want to go
away easily. The Cubs won the game 5-4 in the last inning, with a great come
from behind victory. The Cubs teamed showed determination, character, and
great sportsmanship in bringing another title home home to LaBelle. The
Cubs finished the year with a fantastic record of 25-1. Great Job Cubs!! The
team members are Brandon Miners, Tyler O'Ferrell, Tyler Owens, Sean Mun-
son, Cesareo Leos, Kip Stansley, Nick Wegscheid, Roger Alexander, Dakota
Powers and Brice Johnson.

Summer reading list encourages exploration
List gives readers the
opportunity to learn about
many of FLs treasures
TALLAHASSEE-In celebration of World
Environment Day, the Florida Department
of Education (DOE) and the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection (DEP)
has announced a recommended summer
reading list that promotes the beauty and
adventure found in many of Florida's natu
ral wonders. Selections in the list provide a
focus on Florida's State Parks but also offer
information about other unique ecological
"Students can continue their learning in
fun ways by reading about and exploring
our State Parks during the summer months,"
said Education Commissioner Dr. Eric J.
Smith. "I encourage families to take the time
to celebrate Florida's rich and diverse back-
drop through literacy; not only this summer,
but throughout the year."
In addition to the summer reading list,
DEP's recently launched Rediscover Florida
- 100 Ways in 100 Days campaign encour-
ages families to enhance their Florida "dis-
covery" experience. The Rediscover Florida
effort aims to increase awareness of all the
activities Florida's public lands offer from
the traditional (hiking, biking, and camp
ing) to the unique (festivals, historic reen-
actments and museums). Visitors to the
Rediscover Florida Web site can explore an
interactive list of 100 activities and track how
many of the activities they can complete.
"Summer is the perfect time for stu-
dents to expand their literary horizons and
Grammies Family Home Daycare issued diplomas to the following gradu-
ates of 2009. Graduates are: Dyanna Ward, Anthony Echevarria, and Trinity
Thielen. Awards given out were: Most Improved: Dyanne; Most Inquisitive:
Anthony; and Most Likely to Succeed: Trinity. Also pictured is "Grammie"
become engaged in protecting the environ-
ment by reading about the outdoors," said
DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole. "By promot-
ing literature focused on Florida's diverse
natural resources, we hope to harness stu-
dents' interest in environmental stewardship
and academic success."
Research indicates that children who do
not continue to read during the summer
months risk losing progress made during the
school year. To help families get started on
their summer learning and exploring experi-
ence, the summer reading list offers selec
tions such as:
Read Henry the Impatient Heron by
Donna Love and visit Anastasia State Park in

Healing Waters Family Life Center plans to hold their first service on Sunday,
July 5 in the "Old Welcome Center" at the Oxbow.
Healing Waters is moving
By Dale Conyers
After two years of calling Community
Christian School home, Healing Waters
Family Life Center will be moving to the "Old
Welcome Center" at the Oxbow. They will
be in the center and have their first service
in the new building at 10:00a.m. on July 5th.
"We had been planning this move before
the school was sold to Edison," Rita Dunne,
an elder of the church said.
Healing Waters was formed as a church
in 2007 with Jay Goforth as Pastor. Over the
years they have grown both as a church and
as a force of good in the community. But
members were finding their community
involvement was being hampered because
their meeting place was actually a school -it
was impossible for them to have activities at
the school while classes were in session or
any children on the campus.
On Monday mornings from 8 to 10 a.m.
members of the church help serve breakfast
to the needy at the United Way house on Ft.
Thompson Ave. "We don't ask for names, if
you're hungryyou're hungry, it doesn't' mat-
ter what your status is," Rita said.
They also work with the United Way to
help hand out food for the needy through
the Harry Chapin Food Bank out of Ft. My-
ers. Food is delivered to the United Way and
members of the church take it to the needy
in the community who are unable to get out
on their own.
Healing Waters is also helping the home-
less in the area. The church has been talk-
ing to county officials about opening the
Recreation Center in LaBelle as a shelter for
the homeless during those long cold win-
ter nights. They will have to send a church
member in for training in shelter manage-
ment. Once this is done Healing Waters will
take over and manage the shelter when it is
needed. The local Red Cross has agreed to
provide all the cots necessary for the home-
less who use the shelter.
"We always welcome and encourage
people to come out and help us, so if you're
interested in working for the good of the
community, we'd be happy to have you help
and not try to recruit you," Dunne said.
It's was this type of commitment to the
community and their inability to do more
at the Community Christian School that
prompted Healing Waters to make the move
to the "Old Welcome Center".

can't afford NOTto advertise.
Studies show that maintaining or
increasing your advertising
expenditures during a recession
could increase your business both
