come you to Sabal Palm RV Park in Palmdale.

A world away, just down the road


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
It's a long way from the
high-pbwered world of an in-
dustrial contractor deadng ithi
refineries and power plants to
running an RV park in Palm-
dale, but perhaps not as long
as you think.
Frank DeMartino and his
wife, Donna, have bridged that
gap. The new owners of Sabal
Palm RV Park (formerly Hendry
Sabal Palm RV) bought the park
three months ago. They had
the good fortune to up end up
here, coming from New Jersey
looking for a semi-retirement
activity.
Frank said they looked at
several parks in the general
area, but knew at once that
Sabal Palm was the one for
them. Driving into the place for
the first time, he said they "fell
in love" with the picturesque
pond area.
The park is open all year and
has 12 full time residents and
15 seasonal ones; trailers for
rent and a 30-40 site shady tent
section plus 20 acres zoned for
RVs.
Each site is equipped with
30 and 50 amp electric service
and water; most have septic.
When you stay at Sabal
Palm you will, of course, have


access to the clubhouse with a
brand new commercial grade
kitchen: Campers will enjoy
poker night, covered dish night,
karaol:e and bing:' \\ith their
"neighbors." The clubhouse is
also available for receptions of
up to 80 people.
Next to the clubhouse is the
stage area, During the season,
about December to March, the
DeMartinos will have Blue grass
events and in March a big Blue
Grass festival.
Look for the camp store to
open soon, offering staples
and convenience items like fire
wood.
Campers have access to
.four washers and driers and
the camp has an upgraded
bathhouse.
Naturally, Sabal Palm pro-
vides shuffleboard, basketball,
horseshoes for its patrons and
look for a pool coming soon.
Everything you need to just
kick back revel in the joys natu-
ral Florida.
For those times when you're
ready for a little recreation out-
side of the camp, check out
nearby Lake Histopoka, Ga-
torama and Brighton Casino.
Maybe you'd like to head over
to Fisheating Creek to explore
in a canoe or take a guided tour
or up to Mossy Cove another


camp owned by Frank and
Donna's son, Tony arid his fian-
ce Jayme. Or you can just relax
and dip your hook into one of
Sabal Palm's l kes.
Campers can even bring
their horse. Sabal Palm has
20 acres for horses and also
has four horses of their own.
No worries about Fido Sabal
Palm has a dog park for their,
enjoyment, too!
Park managers Jim and June
Sellers are also available to help
campers with any needs they
may have. Kenny, Phil, Matt
keep the place tidy and neat.
With its relaxing, natural at-
mosphere,. Sabal Palm caters
to all sorts of groups including
birdwatchers, and single camp-
ers as well.
Not convinced yet? Check
this out they're offering a 20
percent discount for campers
till the end of November and
free tent camping for Boy Scout
outings for next six months.
You can look up Sabal Palm
RV Park jn Passport America or
check out their Web site at sa-
balpalmrv.com.
Sabal Palm RV Park is locat-
ed at 1947 Main Ave. in Palm-
dale.
It's a great vacation spot for
Snowbirds and offers a great
little getaway for locals.


Make your neighborhood safer


Community Emergency Re-
sponse Team (CERT) training
promotes a. partnership be-
tween emergency services and
the community.
The goal is to train members
of neighborhoods, community
organizations, or workplaces
in basic response skills, CERT
members are then integrated
into the emergency response
for their area or neighborhood.
If a disaster overwhelmed
or delays the community's
professional response, CERT
members can assist others by
applying the basic response
and organizational skills that
they learned during this train-
ing. These skills could help you


save lives following a disaster
until help arrives. CERT skills
can also apply to daily emer-
gencies. Previous emergency
experience is not required for
participation.
Three weeks of training are
being offered. The first week is
August 19 21 from 6 p.m. to
9 p.m. Week two is August 26
- 28 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with
a Final Drill on August 30 from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendance on
all days is required for certifica-
tion.
CERT training will teach par-
ticipants to:
1. Describe the function of
CERT and their roles in imme-
diate response.


2. Take steps to prepare
themselves for disaster.
3. Identify and reduce poten-
tial fire hazards in their homes
and workplaces.
4. Work as a team to apply
basic fire suppression strate-
gies, resources and safety mea-
sures.
5. Apply techniques for
opening airways, controlling
bleeding and treating shock.
6. Conduct triage under sim-
ulated conditions.
7. Select and set up a treat-
ment area.
8. Identify planning and size-
up requirements for potential

way for





Walgreens


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
What will the LaBelle of the
future look like?
The city commissioners, sit-
ting first as the Local Planning
Agency (LPA) then as the city
commission, met in a special
session July 31 to continue the
process of honing that vision.
As the LPA, the city com-
missioners first heard details
of two proposed ordinances,
then as the city commission
unanimously passed those or-
dinances.
City Planner Shellie John-
son presented the ordinance
that would allow.Walgreens to
build a store at the site of the
LaBelle Trade Center, the north-
west corner of SR 80 and Main
Street, diagonally across SR 80
from the Courthouse. The pro-
posed store has stirred interest
among the commissioners and
many residents, who see it as a
major step forward in attracting
quality businesses and improv-


ing the downtown area. The
city is anxious to use the store
as a gateway to its proposed
downtown walking district.
If it all falls into place, the
store would be a maximum of
15,000 square feet and built in
the Old Florida style. A drive-
thru would be located on the
west side of the building, with
access from the north. Plans
would include the city vacating
part of Yeomans Ave. while re-
taining a utility easement there.
The site would lead into the
Veterans Park proposed across
the street on the northeast cor-
ner of SR 80 and Main Street.
Additional improvements
may be necessary to mitigate
vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
Mayor Paul Puletti ex-
pressed his pleasure in the fact
that Walgreens was endorsing
LaBelle's downtown area as a
"viable place to do business."
The other commissioners

County stepping


up its mosquito


spraying


In an effort to reduce the
mosquito population, Hendry
County announced on August 1
that aerial spraying for mosqui-
toes will begin Tuesday, August
5, in the community of Pioneer.
monitoring the mosquito pop-
ulation in Pioneer has revealed
an explosion in the mosquito
population due to the recent
rains. This year the population
is in excess of 30,000 mosqui-
toes per trap night. In 2006 af-
ter Tropical Storm Ernesto the
traps were in excess of 20,000
mosquitoes per trap night. In
2007 due to draught weather
conditions those numbers
dropped to less than 50 mos-
quitoes.


Clarke Mosquito Control,
the nation's largest mosquito
control provider, will admin-
ister the aerial application.
Clarke will continue to monitor
all other communities trap data
closely and provide aerial relief
if the trap numbers warrant.
In addition to this aerial ap-
plication, Clarke is overseeing
and implementing an integrat-
ed mosquito control program
that provides surveillance of
the mosquito population, lar-
val control and adult mosquito
control utilizing increased truck
spraying.

LPA recommendation to do so.
The commissioners hope to
add flexibility to residents and
businesses in specific areas of
town that have some smaller lot
sizes. They are also hoping it will
spur some good redevelopment

ited commercial while enhanc-

A large crowd sized up candi-
dates for county offices at the July
17 LaBelle Rotary and Kiwanis
Meet the Candidates Night at the
LaBelle Civic Center.
Sheriff's candidates were spot-
lighted earlier. Here are highlights
of remarks by the candidates for
other races.

Property Appraiser
In the Property Appraiser's
race, only those candidates with
challengers in the Primary were
asked questions. All candidates
made opening and closing state-
ments.
Democrat Mary Harn cited her
experience and training including
24 in the Property Appraiser's Of-
fice where she did appraisals in
all categories, in real estate and in
GIS training. She also said she is
very knowledgable about Hendry
County.
She feels the biggest challenge
for the Property Appraiser is to
get a fair lax role out on time es-
pecially while values are decreas-
ing. She is a certified Florida Eval-
uator and 24 years at the Property
4- Appraser's Qffiq,,,as. a. ue ,n,
Democrat Lewell Hughes said-
he would consider being Prop-
erty Appraiser as a way to "give
back" to the community. He cited
experience on the Clewiston City
Commission and 27 years deal-
ing with USSC's land issues.
'He agreed that getting the
tax roles out on time is the big
challenge particularly with the
real estate market in decline. He
said the office needs to get a core
sample of sales for the mid-range
appraisals.
His qualifications include
years as USSC's tax representa-
tive, 27 years in appraisal review.
He said he has insight from the
private sector that would be of


value in office. He said there is
flexibility in establishing values
and that he would negotiate with
the Department of Revenue on lo-
cal value questions.
Mr. Hughes pointed out that
the private sector, especially small
business, is very important and
that he has a broad background

also noted that modular homes
are considered "site-built" and
reasonably comparable in cost
to mobile homes.
Mayor Puletti noted that im-
proving Martin Luther King Blvd.

next year. The city is also looking
at possibly implementing some
mobile home park zoning.

Downtown Walking
District
The Downtown LaBelle Com-
mittee's presentation on revitaliz-
ing the city's core included some
background and revealed it con-
census that SR 29 realignment
should continue to route the


highway, along with the bridge,
through the City of LaBelle.
The other possibilities mov-
ing the highway and bridge east
or west of the city would divert
traffic and devastate businesses
located inside the city, the com-
. mittee reasoned.
Keeping downtown LaBelle
family friendly, alluring and safe
while building on its historic am-
biance enhanced by the river are
priorities. Constraints include un-
certainty about the SR 29 realign-
ment.
The city is faced with some
serious dilemmas, including how
to deal with heavy traffic, speed
and noise, sidewalk repairs, sav-
ing the oak canopy and making


the most of the waterfront.
A Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA) would be one way
to set up a public/private partner-
ship to fund redevelopment.
Suggestions are to: appoint a
committee; get professional mar-
keting assistance and a city logo;
direct construction to under-uti-
lized areas; post signs and kiosks
at sites of interest; establish a pi-
lot streetscape project; highlight
gateways to the community;
improve the dock area; schedule
community gatherings; establish
a city consensus on Florida De-
partment of Transportation's re-
aligning of SR 29 and the bridge;
and link the downtown area with
other local areas of interest.


CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!

I am Phillip Pelletier and I have been a Hendry
County resident for 35 years. I have constantly
served the community those years by volunteering
my time and leadership. To learn more about me,
please visit my website, www.pelletier4pa.com.

My current position as Director Secretary and
Chief Financial Officer of Hendry-LaBelle
Recreation Board proves that I can manage the
office of Property Appraiser. I manage personnel,
including hiring, firing, discipline and rewards. I
prepare and manage the limited budget of the
Board by serving as general contractor for all
new projects and project manager for new parks and facilities built through local
and grant funding. The finances are audited by the State every year and no internal
exceptions have been made.

I have six years experience and education in the Property Appraiser's office as
commercial, agricultural and residential Appraiser. As Administrative Assistant, I
trained personnel in all appraisal areas. I earned the designation of Certified
Florida Evaluator from the Florida Department of Revenue, by successfully
completing the necessary courses with the International Association of Assessing
Officers.

The values of your homes and businesses should not be based on sales alone. My
extensive construction background will be utilized in determining accurate building
values and training the field appraisers to recognize the same attributes. You
know as well as I do that a new roof does not constitute a new home. A 20-year
old home with a new roof still has 20-year old cabinets, plumbing, wiring and 20
years of depreciation.

I will not value your property based on speculative sales. I will not "chase sales'.'t
Values will be set by my office, not the Department of Revenue. The tax roll
must be certified and approved by the DOR based on the Property Appraiser's
valuation. I have proven that I can defend the tax roll values to the DOR by
explaining our local situations.

I believe that members of all our communities within the county should feel
equally important and fairly treated, and that each and every county governmental
agency should strive to work together for the good of the whole county. I can
help make these things happen with God's Grace and Your Vote.

Witches Brew I-I


By Pudge Lehman

When you have to measure
solid shortening, always line the
cup with plastic wrap. Lift it out
to add to your recipe and then
discard.
Before you begin to paint, line
the paint tray with aluminum foil.
Done? Throw it away with a lot
less clean-up.
When traveling, be sure to
pack a night-light. Plug near the
bathroom to see your way when
it's dark.
Use your shredder to shred
newspaper and junk mail to use
for packing material when mail-
ing stuff. It's free!
A quick way to freshen your
garbage disposal is to put orange
or lemon peels down it once in
awhile.
How about freezing them
when you are through peeling
the fruit which may not be on the
same week you want to deodor-
ize the disposal?
In my little catalog which has
a lot of old stuff we used to buy
back in the stone age, you peo-
ple know who you are, there is
a shaving brush with a cup and


shaving soap.
Way back then when my
grampa used to shave that way.
Remember the razor strop, it
probably was a $5 item. Well,
hold onto your disposable razors.
The price today is, are you sit-
ting down, $60.00!! To be sure you
understood, that's sixty dollars...
That was also back in the days
when important decisions were
decided by saying "eeny-meeny-
miney-moe".
Truth that the English language
is hard: Since there is no time like
the present, he thought it was
time to present the present. or -
The dump was so full that it
had to refuse more refuse.


Letters to the Editor


"LUCK of the DRAW?"
Having left the area on June 25
and after 1800 miles of road travel
and not returning until July 23, I
have had to do a lot of reading
and listening to try and catchup
with the Sugar deal.
People, closer to the events
have left me with the feeling
that there must have been some
"show & tell" between the prin-
ciples in Tallahassee and Clewis-
ton leading to the block buster, or
should I say "sweet" deal?
By nature I'm an optimist and
work hard at staying positive in
our ever changing politically, liti-
gated, controlled, environment of
today.
So, it is with a measure of re-
serve that I wait for the real "ele-
phant" in the room to be exposed,
before finalizing any opinion.
In the meantime, maybe this
story will in some way possibly
serve to provide a standard of
comparison, in real time.
It seems that many years ago a
farmer had the misfortune of ow-
ing a large sum of money to the
local grain elevator owner who
was ready to bankrupt the farmer
for the past due sums.
When the farmer pleaded for


more time the elevator operator
said he would forgive the debt if
the farmer's son would marry his
ugly aged, single daughter.
Knowing that the son would
never voluntarily marry his
daughter, the elevator owner pro-
posed a deal. He said he would
forego the farmer's debt if his son
would marry the daughter, and
they could let chance decide the
matter.
He would put a black pebble
and a white pebble into an empty
bag.
Then the son would have to
pick one pebble from the bag.
If he picked the black pebble,
the son would have to marry the
daughter and the father's debt
would be forgiven.
If he picked the white peb-
ble the son need not marry the
daughter and the debt would still
be forgiven, but if he refused to
pick a pebble, the father would
be thrown in jail.
They were standing on a peb-
ble -strewn path in the farmer's
yard. So as they are talking the
elevator owner swiftly swept up
two pebbles from the path into
the bag, but the sharp-eyed son
saw that he had picked up only
black pebbles and put them into


the bag.
The owner then asked the son
to pick a pebble from the bag.
Now, here is where I have to
stop and update the story for a
moment to insert Sugar as the
elevator operator and Sugar em-
ployees as the farmer's son.
So, with that in mind, if you
were the son and Sugar had given
you this choice, what would you
do? /
With no intent of Monday
morning quarterbacking what did
or did not happen in real time, in
the Sugar deal, and continuing to
try and sort out, fact from fiction,
I can only tell you, knowing that
the owner had cheated, what the
son saw as his options and what
he actually did under the circum-
stances.
The son, after careful analysis
saw three available options: The
son could refuse to take a pebble
and send his father to jail.
He could expose the owner as
to having put just 2 black pebbles
in the bag,. and declare a mis-
deal.
Or, the son could pick a black
pebble and sacrifice himself in
order to save his father from the
debt and imprisonment.
After all this consideration the


son went ahead and put his hand
into the bag and in the process
of withdrawing a stone managed
to carelessly let the pebble drop
onto the pebble-strewn path,
where it immediately became
lost among the other pebbles.
Completely embarrassed the
son apologized and offered that if
they looked into the bag the re-
maining pebble would tell them
which one he had chosen.
Now faced with the fact that if
the bag had actually contained a
white and a black pebble, there
is no way the owner can dispute
that the dropped pebble had to
be white.
Without any corroborabative
data to apply, after the fact, as
to how the Sugar Deal actually
came down, I am left with only
the knowledge that, like the black
pebble and the white pebble,
"raw" sugar is dark colored and
"pure" sugar is white.
"Luck" of the "Draw??" You
tell me!
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville

By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church,
LaBelle
Have you ever been around
grouchy, negative, unthankful
people?
Who hasn't?
I don't know
about you, but
I am at a place
in my life where
unappreciative, .
unthankful peo- sa
ple annoy me
more than ever! Dr. Les
The complainer Morgan
has a cantan-
kerous spirit about them that
seems to spray a petulant order.
It is true... the constant moaning
repels any sense of joy,.gracious-
ness or reason to express thanks.
Before I get in a "stinky" mood
myself about, what those who
have a negative attitude, let me
hasten to say what I am thankful
for. Now I know we are a long
way from November and Thanks-
giving. However, aren't you al-
ways appreciative of those who
are positive and seem to enjoy the
simple things about them? I know
I sure do. So, why not review my
list of what I am choosing to be
thankful for... right in the middle
of summer!
I will give thanks to the Lord,


for he is good; his love endures
forever...for the Father and His
inescapable presence...for Jesus
and His amazing grace...for the
Holy Spirit, my companion and
guide.
I will give thanks in all things...
for God works in all things...and
God works for the good of those
who love him and who are called
according to his purpose...there
are no coincidences; only divine
opportunities..
I will give thanks for all things;
for things pleasant and for things
painful. In pleasant times I expe-
rience the heights of happiness;
in painful times I learn to lean on
Him.
I will give thanks for the over-
looked blessings of life...the ser-
endipitous grace...the kind word...
the encouraging letter...the daily
provisions I tend to take for grant-
ed...the opportunity to work and
to be productive...the common
routines of every ordinary day.
I will give thanks for my fam-
ily...my wife who is my constant
companion...for children who
add more to life than they will
ever know...my parents for their
examples of hard work and doing
a job to be proud of.
I will give thanks for my
friends...those who care enough
to tell me the truth...those who


love enough to make sure I have
everything I need...those who be-
lieve in me through the ups and
downs.
I will give thanks for the hassles
of life...a demanding schedule...
traffic jams...daily stresses...per-
sonal responsibilities...meaning-
less tasks...inspiring challenges...
interruptions...cell phones that
make me ubiquitous...all these
remind me of the sacred privilege
of being alive.
I will give thanks for the
church...the household of faith...
my spiritual family which sur-
rounds me with favor and love...
the source of God's grace...the
body of Christ which enables me
to share my gifts...the sanctuary
of grace which calls me upward
and onward in my spiritual walk.
I will give thanks for the Bible...,
the enduring Word ofGod...alamp
unto my feet and a light unto my
path...a sure word in a an age of
confusion...a timely word in sea-
sons of pain...a reassuring word
in the prison of fear...a healing
word for the wounds of the soul.
I will give thanks for Ameri-
ca...for the cost of freedom...the
promise of opportunity...the cour-
age of patriotism...the sacrifice of
warriors...the glory of the Consti-
tution...and a government of the
people, by the people and for the


people.
I will give thanks for this day...
for it is the gift of God...it is the
only day I have...it is a day filled
with endless opportunities and
bright promises...and I shall get
everything I can from it and give
everything I have to it.
I will give thanks to the Lord,
for he is good; His love endures
forever.
Here's a summer challenge for
you... Why not 'make your own
list of what you are thankful for
and send it to me at either Caloo-
sa Baptist Church, PO Box 1516,
LaBelle, FL 33975, or email it to
me at drlkml@yahoo.com. I get
mail at both places.
By the way..: I am thankful for
the mail people, too! Those bills
they bring me each month cause
me to rejoice that I am not in jail,
the hospital or in some cold, damp
cave hoping the coyotes don't
come in the middle of the night to
play "King of the Cavern." I would
probably lose and I wouldn't be
thankful for that! (smile)
Dr. Les Morgan is pastor at
Caloosa Baptist Church, located
a quick 200 yards behind famous
Flora & Ella's in LaBelle on High-
way 80.

Witches Brew
By Pudge Lehman

When you have to measure
solid shortening, always line the
cup with plastic wrap. Lift it out
to add to your recipe and then
discard.
Before you begin to paint, line
the paint tray with aluminum foil.
Done? Throw it away with a lot
less clean-up.
When traveling, be sure to
pack a night-light. Plug near the
bathroom to see your way when
it's dark.
Use your shredder to shred
newspaper and junk mail to use
for packing material when mail-
ing stuff. It's free!
A quick way to freshen your
garbage disposal is to put orange
or lemon peels down it once in
awhile.
How about freezing them
when you are through peeling
the fruit which may not be on the
same week you want to deodor-
ize the disposal?
In my little catalog which has
a lot of old stuff we used to buy
back in the stone age, you peo-
ple know who you are, there is
a shaving brush with a cup and


shaving soap.
Way back then when my
grampa used to shave that way.
Remember the razor strop, it
probably was a $5 item. Well,
hold onto your disposable razors.
The price today is, are you sit-
ting down, $60.00!! To be sure you
understood, that's sixty dollars...
That was also back in the days
when important decisions were
decided by saying "eeny-meeny-
miney-moe".
Truth that the English language
is hard: Since there is no time like
the present, he thought it was
time to present the present. or -
The dump was so full that it
had to refuse more refuse.


Letters to the Editor


"LUCK of the DRAW?"
Having left the area on June 25
and after 1800 miles of road travel
and not returning until July 23, I
have had to do a lot of reading
and listening to try and catchup
with the Sugar deal.
People, closer to the events
have left me with the feeling
that there must have been some
"show & tell" between the prin-
ciples in Tallahassee and Clewis-
ton leading to the block buster, or
should I say "sweet" deal?
By nature I'm an optimist and
work hard at staying positive in
our ever changing politically, liti-
gated, controlled, environment of
today.
So, it is with a measure of re-
serve that I wait for the real "ele-
phant" in the room to be exposed,
before finalizing any opinion.
In the meantime, maybe this
story will in some way possibly
serve to provide a standard of
comparison, in real time.
It seems that many years ago a
farmer had the misfortune of ow-
ing a large sum of money to the
local grain elevator owner who
was ready to bankrupt the farmer
for the past due sums.
When the farmer pleaded for


more time the elevator operator
said he would forgive the debt if
the farmer's son would marry his
ugly aged, single daughter.
Knowing that the son would
never voluntarily marry his
daughter, the elevator owner pro-
posed a deal. He said he would
forego the farmer's debt if his son
would marry the daughter, and
they could let chance decide the
matter.
He would put a black pebble
and a white pebble into an empty
bag.
Then the son would have to
pick one pebble from the bag.
If he picked the black pebble,
the son would have to marry the
daughter and the father's debt
would be forgiven.
If he picked the white peb-
ble the son need not marry the
daughter and the debt would still
be forgiven, but if he refused to
pick a pebble, the father would
be thrown in jail.
They were standing on a peb-
ble -strewn path in the farmer's
yard. So as they are talking the
elevator owner swiftly swept up
two pebbles from the path into
the bag, but the sharp-eyed son
saw that he had picked up only
black pebbles and put them into


the bag.
The owner then asked the son
to pick a pebble from the bag.
Now, here is where I have to
stop and update the story for a
moment to insert Sugar as the
elevator operator and Sugar em-
ployees as the farmer's son.
So, with that in mind, if you
were the son and Sugar had given
you this choice, what would you
do? /
With no intent of Monday
morning quarterbacking what did
or did not happen in real time, in
the Sugar deal, and continuing to
try and sort out, fact from fiction,
I can only tell you, knowing that
the owner had cheated, what the
son saw as his options and what
he actually did under the circum-
stances.
The son, after careful analysis
saw three available options: The
son could refuse to take a pebble
and send his father to jail.
He could expose the owner as
to having put just 2 black pebbles
in the bag, and declare a mis-
deal.
Or, the son could pick a black
pebble and sacrifice himself in
order to save his father from the
debt and imprisonment.
After all this consideration the


son went ahead and put his hand
into the bag and in the process
of withdrawing a stone managed
to carelessly let the pebble drop
onto the pebble-strewn path,
where it immediately became
lost among the other pebbles.
Completely embarrassed the
son apologized and offered that if
they looked into the bag the re-
maining pebble would tell them
which one he had chosen.
Now faced with the fact that if
the bag had actually contained a
white and a black pebble, there
is no way the owner can dispute
that the dropped pebble had to
be white.
Without any corroborabative
data to apply, after the fact, as
to how the Sugar Deal actually
came down, I am left with only
the knowledge that, like the black
pebble and the white pebble,
"raw" sugar is dark colored and
"pure" sugar is white.
"Luck" of the "Draw??" You

are no coincidences; only divine
opportunities..
I will give thanks for all things;
for things pleasant and for things
painful. In pleasant times I expe-
rience the heights of happiness;
in painful times I learn to lean on
Him.
I will give thanks for the over-
looked blessings of life...the ser-
endipitous grace...the kind word...
the encouraging letter...the daily
provisions I tend to take for grant-
ed...the opportunity to work and
to be productive...the common
routines of every ordinary day.
I will give thanks for my fam-
ily...my wife who is my constant
companion...for children who
add more to life than they will
ever know...my parents for their
examples of hard work and doing
a job to be proud of.
I will give thanks for my
friends...those who care enough
to tell me the truth...those who


love enough to make sure I have
everything I need...those who be-
lieve in me through the ups and
downs.
I will give thanks for the hassles
of life...a demanding schedule...
traffic jams...daily stresses...per-
sonal responsibilities...meaning-
less tasks...inspiring challenges...
interruptions...cell phones that
make me ubiquitous...all these
remind me of the sacred privilege
of being alive.
I will give thanks for the
church...the household of faith...
my spiritual family which sur-
rounds me with favor and love...
the source of God's grace...the
body of Christ which enables me
to share my gifts...the sanctuary
of grace which calls me upward
and onward in my spiritual walk.
I will give thanks for the Bible...
the enduring Word of God...a lamp
unto my feet and a light unto my
path...a sure word in a an age of
confusion...a timely word in sea-
sons of pain...a reassuring word
in the prison of fear...a healing
word for the wounds of the soul.
I will give thanks for Ameri-
ca...for the cost of freedom...the
promise of opportunity...the cour-
age of patriotism...the sacrifice of
warriors...the glory of the Consti-
tution...and a government of the
people, by the people and for the


people.
I will give thanks for this day...
for it is the gift of God...it is the
only day I have...it is a day filled
with endless opportunities and
bright promises...and I shall get
everything I can from it and give
everything I have to it.
I will give thanks to the Lord,
for he is good; His love endures
forever.
Here's a summer challenge for
you... Why not 'make yoLur own
list of what you are thankful for
and send it to me at either Caloo-
sa Baptist Church, PO Box 1516,
LaBelle, FL 33975, or email it to
me at drlkml@yahoo.com. I get
mail at both places.
By the way..: I am thankful for
the mail people, too! Those bills
they bring me each month cause
me to rejoice that I am not in jail,
the hospital or in some cold, damp
cave hoping the coyotes don't
come in the middle of the night to
play "King of the Cavern." I would
probably lose and I wouldn't be
thankful for that! (smile)
Dr. Les Morgan is pastor at
Caloosa Baptist Church, located
a quick 200 yards behind famous
Flora & Ella's in LaBelle on High-
way 80.

residential energy leaks


TALLAHASSEE-Florida's
Public Service Commission (PSC)
promotes energy conservation
programs, and PSC Commission-
er Lisa Polak Edgar is taking her
own advice. Commissioner Edgar
partnered with her electric utility,
Talquin Electric Cooperative, Inc.
(Talquin), in a home energy us-
age analysis and is encouraging
other customers to contact their
utility companies to do the same.
"Each one of us is responsible
for conserving energy. We can
reduce our electric bills while
preserving energy supplies,"
said PSC Commissioner Edgar.
"Talquin's energy analysis has
identified ways for my family to
improve our personal energy
consumption, and I plan to act on
their suggestions."
Each analysis is tailored to the
specific home and uses a thermal
imaging camera to locate air intru-
sion, temperature anomalies, and
duct leakage. Other tools used
include a photographic, non-con-
tact camera; smoke gun; digital
meter; and data loggers that mea-
sure temperature, humidity, dew
point, air leaks, and much more.


Insulation that has deteriorated or
formed gaps is also identified, as
.are insulation levels, building in-
tegrity, and peripheral consump-
tion from pumps and pools.
"Talquin is providing this ser-
vice to about 40 members per
month," stated Dan Ard, Talquin's
Energy Services Specialist. "It's
our goal to educate and assist our
members in reducing energy con-
sumption. Most people do not re-
alize how much energy they actu-
ally use and are often amazed at
the small changes that can make
a big difference in their electricity
bill. Members have been pleas-
antly surprised that this valuable
service is provided to them at no
additional charge. Response has
been so positive that I am usu-
ally scheduling appointments
one month in advance." Findings
from the energy analysis will be
compiled into a report and sent to
Commissioner Edgar. Performed
free for Talquin members, the
analysis helps customers man-
age the rising cost of energy and
improve their household energy
efficiency.

Fort Myers, FL-G. Steve Atkins,
Ph.D. has been named Edison
College's District Vice President

FGCU funds scholarship

for study in Scotland


FORT MYERS, FL Florida
Gulf Coast University recently
partnered with the St. Andrews
Society of SW Florida, Inc. in
Naples to establish a scholarship
for FGCU students to study in
Scotland for a minimum of one
semester during the fall, spring
or summer in 2008-09 academic
year.
Initial ideas for this scholar-
ship were generated several
years ago by a few members
of the St. Andrews Society who
wished to expose a young per-
son to life in Scotland and to
learn about its history and cul-
ture. This past year St. Andrews
Society president Don McGee
worked with FGCU International
Services director Elaine Hozdik
to develop the scholarship.
"Student interest in study
abroad has increased nation-
ally and we see this trend at
FGCU as well," said Hozdik.
"Study abroad complements
and broadens the educational
experience on our campus and
provides students with a global
perspective that is valuable to
the student and to future em-
ployers. We are grateful to the
St. Andrews Society for their
partnership in providing this op-


portunity to our students who
otherwise might not be able to
pursue this educational goal. It
will also help to promote knowl-
edge and understanding of the
rich Scottish heritage and his-
tory."
Deserving students will be
selected by FGCU International
Services. The criteria for eligibili-
ty of the scholarship include stu-
dents in good academic stand-
ing with a grade point average
of 2.8 minimum, and preferably
residents of Collier County. In
addition, students will be asked
to write a personal essay as part
of the application process, and
top candidates may be inter-
viewed by St. Andrews Society
board members.
"This is an exciting oppor-
tunity for both FGCU students
and St. Andrews Society," said
McGee. "We hope to support at
least one student up to $5,000
in this next year. FGCU Interna-
tional Services will be assisting
students to select and apply for
appropriate study programs in
Scotland, and to apply for our
scholarship."
For more information, con-
tact Hozdik at (239) 590-7925.

We sometimes ask ourselves
why.....perhaps this will help...I1
guess our Creator saw his image
in her...and she has been set


free.
Malachi 3:3 says: 'He will sit
as a refiner and purifier of silver.'
This verse puzzled some women
so in a Bible study and they won-
dered what this statement meant
about the character and Nature of
God. One of the women offered
to find out the process of refining
silver and get back to the group
at their next Bible Study. That
week, the woman called a silver-
smith and made an appointment
to watch him at work. She didn't
mention anything about the rea-
son for her interest beyond her
curiosity about the process of re-
fining Silver.
As she watched the silver-
smith, he held a piece of silver
over the fire and let it heat up. He
explained that in refining silver,
one needed to hold the silver in
the middle of the fire where the
flames were hottest as to burn
away all the impurities.
The woman thought about
God holding us in such a hot spot;
then she thought again about the
verse that says: 'He sits as a refin-
er and purifier of silver.'
She asked the silversmith if it
was true that he had to sit there in
front of the fire the whole time.
The man answered that yes,
he not only had to sit there hold-
ing the silver, but he had to keep
his eyes on the silver the entire
time it was in the fire. If the silver
was left a moment too long in the
flames, it would be destroyed.
The woman was silent for a
moment. Then she asked the
silversmith, 'How do you know
when the silver is fully refined?'
He smiled at her and an-
swered,
'Oh, that's easy -- when I see
my image in it.'

FGCU MPA program

approved for accreditation


FORT MYERS, FL The Master's
of Public Administration (MPA) at
Florida Gulf Coast University was
recently approved for accredita-
tion by the National Association
of Schools of Public Affairs and
Administration (NASPAA) for a
period of seven years, the maxi-
mum allowed under the NASPAA
guidelines.
The MPA program at FGCU is
one of a few online programs in
the nation to receive accredita-
tion. The program began in the
fall of 1997 and has since graduat-
ed over 100 students. It currently
has 65 students, many of whom
work full-time for state and local
governments or non-profit or-
ganizations. The majority of the
students are from the Southwest
Florida. region, but because of
the online nature of the program,
many work in other areas within
the state.
There is a great demand for
professional public sector man-
agers in the region and the MPA
program at FGCU is dedicated to

Partnership

works to feed

the hungry
GAINESVILLE-Florida Farm
Bureau's Young Farmers & Ranch-
ers (YF&R) program has teamed
up with America's Second Har-
vest, the largest charitable relief
organization in the U.S., to help
feed America. Young Farmers and
Ranchers across the nation have
been working in partnership with
Second Harvest since 2002 to
keep feeding the hungry.
Young Farmers and Ranch-
ers Farm Bureau members be-
tween the ages of 18 and 35 are
donating food and other items to
local food banks affiliated with
America's Second Harvest. They
also donate money and time.
"Each food bank depends
heavily on individuals and groups
to help in the fight against hun-
ger," said Rachel Kudelko, Florida
Farm Bureau's Young Farmer and
Rancher coordinator. "Time do-
nated at the local food bank goes
a long way toward helping men,
women and children get the food
they desperately need."
Donations by county YF&R
groups will be calculated at the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation
Annual meeting Oct. 8-10, at the
Orlando Peabody Hotel and priz-
es will be awarded to each of the
county Farm Bureaus that donate
the most food, the most money
and the most volunteer hours, re-
spectively.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization. More informa-

at other Florida programs that
are accredited and ensures that
our students have the skills that
are necessary to compete in the
ever changing landscape that is
government and non-profit ad-

Local 4-H members attend



Florida 4-H Congress


By Sonja Crawford
More than 300 4-H youth ages
14-18 were able to get a taste of
college life by participating in the
2008 Florida 4-H Congress held
at the University of Florida on
July 21 July 25. This fabulous
week enabled many 4-H mem-
bers to learn and share with oth-
er 4-H'ers across Florida.
Congress is divided into com-
petitive and non-competitive
sessions. The non-competitive
portion is devoted to educa-
tional/leadership workshops ad-
dressing the interest of Florida's
youth including animal science,
individual and family resources,
plant science, environmental
education, citizenship and lead-
ership, communication arts as
well as science and technol-
ogy. The competitive portion of
Congress is where the first place
senior District winners compete
against other county District win-
ners in a variety of events, such
as fashion revue, demonstra-
tions/illustrated talks, and public
speaking. County 4-H Judging
teams participate with other
teams across the state in various
judging contests.
Furthermore, interviews for
State Recognition and Scholar-
ships are also conducted during
this event.

Wage increase could


hurt struggling economy


WASHINGTON-As the United
States approaches yet another
increase in the federal minimum
wage rate on Thursday, July 24,
the Employment Policies Institute
(EPI) released new preliminary
data showing the relationship be-
tween minimum wage increases
and unemployment. The study,
which is being published this
fall and is authored by profes-
sors Joseph Sabia (University of
Georgia) and Richard Burkhauser
(Cornell University), analyzed the
effects of the 2005-06 increase in
New York State's minimum wage
and found that the employment
decline among vulnerable groups
like teenagers and adults without
a high school diploma was sub-
stantial.
The study found that for every
10 percent increase in the mini-
mum wage, employment among
16-29 year olds without a high
school degree decreased between
6 and 14 percent.
This study buttresses scores
of other recent research papers.
A study from the University of
California at Irvine found that for
every 10 percent increase in the
minimum wage, employment for
high school dropouts and young
black adults and teenagers falls by
8.5 percent. Research from Duke
University found that minimum
wage increases cause low-skilled
employees to lose their jobs to
more skilled applicants-often
second and third earners from
wealthier families who wouldn't
have taken a job paying the previ-
ous wage.


The job loss is a result of the
burden government places on
small businesses by consistently
increasing labor costs with auto-
pilot wage hikes regardless of
economic conditions. For a busi-
ness with 20 entry-level employ-
ees in states at the current fed-
eral minimum wage, Thursday's
$0.70 hike will increase labor
costs by approximately $30,000
in the next year. Businesses with
small profit margins would need
to sell hundreds of thousands of
dollars in additional goods or ser-
vices to recoup those increased
costs, a virtual impossibility in this
stagnant economy.
"Decades of economic re-
search clearly demonstrate that
minimum wage hikes result in
job loss for the most vulnerable
members of the economy," said
Rick Berman, Executive Direc-
tor of the Employment Policies
Institute. "The unintended con-
sequences of Thursday's hike
is pricing low-skilled working
Americans out of the job market
and increasing unemployment
among those groups that need
help the most."
"When you put increased la-
bor costs on autopilot, while con-
sumer demand is shrinking and
commodity costs are rising, you
create a recipe for job loss among
the least employable workers."
The Employment Policies In-
stitute is a nonprofit research or-
ganization dedicated to studying
public policy issues surrounding
entry-level employment.

TALLAHASSEE-Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission (PSC)
Chairman Matthew M. Carter II
and Florida Telecommunications
Relay, Inc. (FTRI) Executive Di-
rector James Forstall teamed up
to recognize the 18th anniversary
of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) by showing Florida res-
idents with hearing loss how to
connect with 911, family, friends,
and businesses.
Specialized telephone equip-
ment offered through FTRI pro-
vides critical access to basic tele-
communications services for deaf,
hard of hearing, deaf/blind, and
speech disabled citizens through-
out the state. Overseen by the
PSC, FTRI is a statewide nonprofit
organization established in 1991,
as a result of the Americans with


Disabilities Act, to administer the
Specialized Telecommunications
Equipment Distribution Program.
"Ensuring that disabled individu-
als are not discriminated against,
the Americans with Disabilities
Act guarantees telecommunica-
tions access for the hearing im-
paired and speech disabled,' said
Chairman Carter. "In Florida, the
PSC is charged with implement-
ing this directive. Telephone ac-
cess provided through Florida's
Relay Service (FRS) offers peace
of mind for people with hearing
loss and their families."
Florida ranks second nation-
wide in population percentage;
with hearing loss, 'affecting nearly
three million citizens. More than
3.8 million calls were handled
last fiscal year by FRS, according


to the PSC's 2007 annual report
on the Status of the Telecommu-
nications Access System. The re-
port also stated that 18,937 new.
deaf, hard of hearing, deaf/blind,
and speech disabled individuals
were served throughout the state;
and 41,337 pieces of specialized
telecommunications equipment
were distributed.
"I sincerely believe that Florida
residents' telephone needs are
being met with the special tele-
phone that is available through
the FTRI program and the Florida
Relay Service. Our mission is to
provide a special telephone and
.services to each Floridian with a
.hearing loss or speech disability to
allow them access to the telecom-
munications system. FTRI enjoys
a successful working relationship


with tne PSC as well as numerous
organizations throughout Florida.
Working together, we make a
positive difference in someone's
life by "Connecting People to
People," said Mr. Forstall.
FRS gives users the freedom
and opportunity to make both
personal and business calls.
How does the FRS system
work? A resident uses a Telecom-
munications Device for the Deaf
(TTY or TDD), which includes a
keyboard and screen, to type a
message to a specially trained
communications assistance op-
erator, who then voices the mes-
sage to the receiving party. The
reverse, process then cormpletes
the message to the person with
hearing loss.
The equipment and ring signal-


ing devices are loaned to all quali-
fied permanent Florida residents
at no charge for as long as nec-
essary. For information on how
to obtain the specialized equip-
ment, call FTRI at 1-800-222-3448
(Voice) or 1-888-447-5620 (TIY)
or visit www.ftri.org.
' The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner. The PSC ex-
ercises regulatory authority over
utilities in the areas of rate base/
economic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and the moni-
toring' of safety, reliability, and
service.

PSC approves FPL mid-year fuel adjustment


JUNO BEACH Friday, August
1 marked the first day of rate in-
creases for Florida Power and
Light customers. Dramatic in-
creases in world oil and natural
gas prices made it necessary for
the company to file a mid-year
fuel correction as required by the
Public Service Commission.
FP&L plans to-recover 50 per-
cent of the additional $746 mil-
lion in fuel costs between August
and December of 2008 and the
remaining 50 percent over the
12 months of 2009. A 1,000 kilo-
watt-hour monthly residential bill
would increase beginning in Au-
gust 2008 by $8.14, from $102.63
to $110.77, or about 8 percent.
Based on current market prices
for fuel, a 1,000 kilowatt-hour
monthly residential bill in 2009
would increase to approximately
$122, or about 10 percent. This
2009 rate is a projection and may
vary depending on factors such
as the volatility of world fuel mar-
kets, hurricane events and other
bill impacts.
Under Florida law, FPL is not
permitted to earn a profit on
fuel and customers only pay for
the fuel needed to produce the
electricity they consume. When
fuel prices go up, the additional
costs are passed through to cus-
tomers, and when fuel prices go
down, the savings are also passed
through to customers.
In its mid-year fuel correction.
filing, FP&L reported that the cost
of natural gas has jumped from
$8.17 per million BTU in July
2007 (which formed the basis of
FPL's 2008 fuel filing) to $10.75
per million BTU in May 2008,
a 32 percent increase. Fuel oil,
which powers 8 percent of FPL's
electricity generation, went up for
the same period from $57.81 per
barrel in July of 2007 to $89.02
per barrel in May of 2008, a 54
percent increase. The cost of
fuel has continued to go up since
the company filed its petition in
early June, and at this point FPL
is projecting an additional $300
million under-recovery at the end
of 2008. This projection may vary
depending on factors such as the
volatility of world fuel markets,
hurricane events, and other bill
impacts.
FPLs fleet is fuel efficient and
continues to improve
FPL has taken numerous steps
to mitigate the impact of fuel
,_.osts.by improving the efficiency
of its existing plants and building
new generation facilities with low
or no fuel costs:
SFPL's fossil fuel power plant
fleet is the most fuel efficient
among large-scale utilities na-
tionwide. The company has im-
proved fleet fuel efficiency by 10
percent in the past five years and
by 18 percent since 1990. As a
fossil power plant increases in ef-
ficiency, it can generate the same
megawatt hour of electricity with
less fuel, thus saving money for
FPL customers and producing
fewer greenhouse gases.


FPL 'has proposed to mod-
ernize its power plants at Rivi-
era Beach and Cape Canaveral,
a move that will save customers
roughly $450 million in fuel and
other savings over the life of the
project. The new units will be
considerably more efficient than
the existing facilities, using 33
percent less fuel to produce the
same amount of power.
FPL is upgrading its exist-
ing nuclear facilities to produce
an additional 400 megawatts of
power, which is the equivalent of
a medium-sized fossil fuel plant.
Fuel costs for nuclear plants are
dramatically lower than for fossil-
fuel generation, costing roughly
half a cent per kilowatt hour com-
pared to 7 cents for natural gas
and 10 cents for fuel oil.
FPL has proposed to build
three solar energy centers in Flor-
ida with a capacity of 110 mega-
watts. The fuel used to power
these sites will be free.
FPL offers programs to
help customers
FPL offers many programs
and tips to its customers to help
them manage their monthly elec-
tric bills. (Information is available
on FPULs website at www.fpl.
com). For example, customers
can sign up for Budget Billing,
which allows them to smooth out
the amount of their monthly bill
over the course of the year. In ad-
dition,
Home Energy Surveys. A
personalized analysis of home
energy usage, along with a report
providing energy-saving tips and
recommendations.
On Call. A program that
automatically turns off major ap-
pliances when electricity demand
is at its highest. Customers can
save up to 8 a month. .%,
A/C Buying Program. Be-
cause air conditioning alone can
amount to more than half of total
energy consumption in the sum-
mer months, FPL offers custom-
ers an incentive to install high-
efficiency heating and cooling
systems for homes.
Duct System Test and Repair.
For a nominal fee, FPL will in-
spect a home's cooling and heat-
ing ducts for costly leaks and even
help pay to have them repaired.
Photovoltaic Systems. FPL
is committed to helping environ-
mentally conscious customers
offset some of their electricity
costs by providing the means; to
interconnect their small photovol-
taic systems to FPL's power grid.
Energy Savings Toolkit. Cus-
tomers can learn about common
causes for high bills and solutions
to help control energy usage and
lower their bills.
Building Envelope Program:
FPL will pay incentives to reduce
the cost of installing new insula-
tion on homes built before 1982
and to install a roof that reflects
the sun's rays.
BuildSmart. FPL certifies
new construction homes save
up to 30 percent on energy bills

Don't lose Homestead
The Hon. Kristina Kulpa, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser
wants everyone to remember
that if you relinquished your
Florida Homesteaded property in
2007 and are applying for or have
already applied for homestead
in 2008 you may be eligible for
the new "portability exemption."
The same applies to your prop-
erty relinquished in 2008 and you
are now pre-filing for 2009 on a
new homestead.
If you qualify for portability it
will allow you to carry your cap
(Save Our Homes) with you to
your new Florida property.
If you are upsizing, meaning
the market value of your new
homestead property is greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty you will be able to carry
your "Save Our Homes" benefit
forward up to $500,000.


If you are downsizing, mean-
ing the market value of the new
homestead property is less than
the old homestead property you
will carry the SOH benefit for-
ward based on a percentage
of old to new homestead up to
$500,000.
You can go to our website
www.hendrypa.org and down-
load the information for what
you need to bring with you to
pre-file for 2009 homestead plus
an application for portability.
If you have relinquished your
Florida homesteaded home in
2007 or 2008 but have not yet
purchased another home you
can also download a "Request
For Removal of Tax Exemption".
If you have additional ques-
tions please call our office and
my staff will be able to assist you.
In LaBelle call 863-675-5270 and
in Clewison 863-983-3178.

Pre-file agriculture
classification
The Hon. Kristina A. Kulpa,
Hendry County Property Apprais-
er, announces that her office is
now taking pre-files for 2009 for
the Agriculture Classification.
Do You Have a Commercial
Ag Business? Have you recently
made ANY changes to this busi-
ness/land? If you answered yes
then here are a few things you
MUST remember.
Agricultural Classifications
are not transferable.
New owners of agricultural
lands must apply in order to re-
ceive an agricultural classifica-
tion
If the status of the land
changes in any way, it is the re-
sponsibility of the taxpayer to no-
tify our office.
Please note, new guidelines
were adopted for the 2007 tax
year. If you have any questions


or concerns regarding Agricul-
tural Classification please feel
free to contact Karen Robinson,
our Agriculture Specialist, at 863-
675-5270 or visit our web site at
www.hendryprop.org.

Preffle now for 2009
Property Appraiser Kristina
Kulpa would like to remind you
that you can pre-file for your
2009 tax exemptions now. You
do not have to wait until Janu-
ary 2, 2009, to file. If you file early
you can avoid the rush, the wait-
ing in line and perhaps even for-
getting to file and missing out on
the exemption.
Office hours are 8:30 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Monday through Fri-
day. Please stop by during those
hours and put your filing for tax
exemptions behind you.
If you have any questions on
pre-filing for 2009 you can call the
LaBelle office at 863-675-5270 or
Clewiston at 863-983-3178.

Ask your candidate?
Q: What can the voters in your
district do to bring about the
changes needed to Hendry
County?
A: Regardless of where I go or
who I talk to the message is
clear "We need to return to con-
servative government." The first step to results is
action. If you are not satisfied with the decisions
being made on your behalf, you can do something
about it-Vote! Do not wait to vote in November.
Early voting starts this coming Tuesday, August
12th. I urge all Republicans to come out and make
a difference. I'm ready to represent you on behalf
of our district and county. Voting in this month's
primary is crucial. Please join me in "7ak1ingq a ne
ioctiown!"-it's time.

Redsnook catch and release Sports Shorts


charity tournament sign ups


NAPLES, FL July 31, 2008 -
The Conservancy of Southwest
Florida announces the second
year for the 2008 RedSnook Catch
and Release Charity Tournament.
This International Game Fish As-
sociation certified tournament
will be held October 3 through 5.
Teams, individuals and junior an-
glers under age 16 can participate.
Heatherwood Construction is the
2008 presenting sponsor. Other
participating sponsors include
M&l Bank, Naples Harbour Yacht
Club, Comcast, ESPN-AM Radio,
Naples Yacht Club and Florida
Fishing Weekly.
Roland Martin, legendary an-
gler and television host of the
"Fishing with Roland Martin
Show," will again host the three-
day tournament, a benefit to
raise funds for the Conservancy
of Southwest Florida water qual-
ity programs. The kick-off party
and auction is Friday, October 3 at
the Naples Harbour Yacht Club.
Anglers will launch from Naples,
Goodland and Chokoloskee Sat-
urday, October 4 and Sunday, Oc-
tober 5. The awards ceremony is


Sunday evening, October 5.
To register, contact Meghan
Clancy at (239) 403-4200. Reg-
istrations will be accepted until
September 22, 2008.
"Due to popular demand, a fly
fishing division has been added to
this year's tournament," accord-
ing to Andy Hill, Conservancy
Board member and tournament
chair. "We've also added a junior
angler division and encourage all
women anglers to compete."
"Last year," said Andrew McEl-
waine, Conservancy of South-
west Florida CEO and president,
"the tournament raised over
$40,000 for our water quality
and water protection programs."
McElwaine continued, "This year,
thanks to the great vision set by
former tournament chairs Jim Lo-
zelle and Gil LaCroix, and Andy's
energy this year, I have no doubt
we can exceed that amount."
Andy Hill stated, "Having Ro-
land Martin as our honorary chair
and spokesperson is a big win for
us. Roland has been kind enough
to donate his time and truly un-
derstands that great fishing relies


on great water. Since many Con-
servancy efforts focus on protect-
ing our waterways, this is a win-
win for competitive anglers and
the Conservancy."
Jim Lozelle has been in charge
of planning this year's auction and
is optimistic that the auction will
be better than ever. "Through the
generosity of businesses and indi-
viduals in the area, we are excited
about receiving unique, one-of-a-
kind auction items. Though the
items are too numerous to men-
tion, some of them include a one
week vacation in a 10,000 square
foot private home in Manzanilla,
Mexico, complete with full staff
and a Rio Negro Lodge Adven-
ture in Brazil." The October 3
Kick off party and auction is open
to the public on October 3 at the
Naples Harbour Yacht Club. "We
encourage all in the angling com-
munity, and throughout Naples,
to come to this exciting party and
fundraiser," summarized Lozelle.

the tournament, go to www.

servancy.

Help monitor for chronic wasting disease
fiti f-.,e df tr d^r to., inC C d anada (Saskatch-


Dy uony Young.
FWC
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) is looking to hunters this
coming season to help it monitor
the state's deer herd for chronic
wasting disease, or CWD, as it's
more commonly called.
CWD belongs to a group of
diseases known as transmissible
spongiform encephalopathies.
Scientists still have much to learn
about CWD, which appears to oc-
cur only in the deer family but is
believed to be caused by an ab-
normal protein called a prion.
The fatal CWD attacks the
brains of infected cervids (mule
deer, white-tailed deer, moose
and elk), causing them to be-
come emaciated, display abnor-
mal behavior and lose control of
bodily functions.
Warning signs of CWD that
hunters can be on the lookout for
include deer that are extremely
thin or appear sick, or those ex-
hibiting odd behavior such as
excessive salivating or urinating,
staggering, walking in circles,
standing with a wide stance, head
tremors or deer found dead from
unknown causes.
Transmission of CWD occurs
by direct contact with bodily fluids
(feces, urine, saliva) or through
contact with a contaminated en-
vironment. In this second sce-
nario, the prion stays within the
environment, and it may remain


iniecious Jor years.
The good news is, there's no
evidence that CWD can be trans-
mitted to humans or livestock,
and it's not yet been found in
Florida or any other southeastern
state. But, it's going to take the
help of all hunters and the FWC
to keep it that way.
Currently, the only practical
method for diagnosing CWD is
through analysis of brain-stemn
tissue or lymph nodes from dead
deer. Therefore, Florida's more
than 240,000 hunters can play an
extremely important role in CWD
surveillance by helping FWC biol-
ogists collect samples from their
harvested deer.
The goal of the FWC is to col-
lect these samples throughout
Florida, and it's asking private
landowners and hunting clubs to
please participate in this surveil-
lance. Since 2002, the FWC has
tested more than 3,400 hunter-
killed and road-killed deer.
If you'd like to help, please
contact your nearest FWC region-
al office or call the toll-free CWD
Hotline at 1-866-CWD-WATCH
(293-9282) for further informa-
tion and to coordinate collection
and pick-up of deer samples.
To date, CWD has been found
in mule deer, white-tailed deer,
moose and elk in Colorado, Illi-
nois, Wyoming, Nebraska, South
Dakota, Wisconsin, Oklahoma,
Kansas, Montana, Minnesota,
New Mexico, New York, West Vir-
ginia and Utah. It also has been

ewan and Alberta) and in South
Korea.
The primary objective of CWD
management is to prevent it from
entering our state, so Florida has
adopted laws regulating the trans-
port of harvested and live deer
into Florida.
It's illegal for hunters to bring
into Florida whole carcasses of
any harvested cervid from any of
these affected states or countries.
From these areas, hunters can
bring back only de-boned meat
and finished taxidermy mounts,
hides, skulls, antlers and teeth,
as long as all soft tissue has been
removed.
Should a CWD outbreak oc-
cur in Florida, the keys to effective
management will be detecting it
early and taking swift action to
limit its spread. Because of this,
the FWC has a CWD action team,
made up of veterinarians, biolo-
gists, law enforcement officers
and media folks, in place and
ready to formulate a response
plan and develop protocols with
other government agencies.
This season, if you come across
or harvest a deer that appears sick
or emaciated, or one that has died
from unknown causes, don't han-
dle it. Instead, contact the FWC,
24-7 on its toll-free hotline at
1-866-CWD-WATCH. It's impor-
tant to call as soon as possible,
because any testing must be done
within 48 hours of a deer's death
to produce reliable results.

in appraisal.
Phill Pelletier (Dem) pointed
to his background in construction
and also with the Property Ap-
praiser's Office.
For him, the challenge for the
office is to work with office per-
sonnel training and cross training
and to serve the public.
He said he has taken courses-
toe be a Certified Florida Evalua-
tor and that people could depend
on him to stand up to the Depart-
ment of Revenue for them.
Mr. Pelletier said he would
oversee the office and help bring
unity to government. He said
he could work with developers,
growers and the county commis-
sion.
Incumbent Kristina Kulpa
(Rep) has 15 years in office, and
is a state certified general real es-
tate appraiser.
She feels hers is the most im-
portant job in the county because
all their budgets are based on the
work her office does.
As the only Republican run-
ning for this office, and therefore
not on the Primary ballot, she did
not field the questions as the oth-
er candidates did.
Ms. Kulpa pointed to 16 years
of "fair, equitable tax roles" done
on time. She said she does not
create value, just records it and
that she does negotiate with the
Department of Revenue.
She said there is 14 percent
decrease in value for 2008 and
the budget will be short again this
year.
She said implementation of
Amendment 1 is the major chal-
lenge coming up and that conti-
nuity is needed during times of
change.

Clerk of Courts
With just two candidates for
Clerk, Democratic incumbent
Barbara Butler challenged by
Republican Jennifer Davis, these
candidates go straight to the No-
vember ballot. They only made
opening and closing statements.
Up first, Ms. Davis said the
Clerk is the record keeper for the
county and the courts. She began
working at the Clerk's Office in
1999.
As Chief Finance Officer for
; Hendry County, she said she
knows more about the county's
finances than anyone else.
+i She facilitated the commis-
sioners' ability to decrease the
millage from ten mills to the cur-
rent 6.5 mills over the past several
years. She said it has been her job
to "educate" the commissioners
about where the money is.
When Amendment 1 begins
to be felt, the taxable value will
decrease again, she said.
Ms. Davis noted that the Clerk
is the custodian of your records
and asked that she be allowed, to
take on that responsibility.
Incumbent Barbara Butler has
served as Clerk for 7.5 years.
She said her job includes han-
dling court transactions, records
and Internet Technology putting
the commissioners' agenda on
line.
Ms. Butler said she has always
had an open door policy.

County Commission
District 3
Only Republican candidates in
this race were asked questions,
since the winner of that group
will face NPA Don Davis in No-
vember.
Republican Tris Chapman
cited his strong work ethic along
with two terms on the citrus com-
mission and many other boards
where he said he learned to ask
the tough questions and make
the tough decisions.
In answer to the question how
important is District 3 to the west-
ern side of the county?
Mr. Chapman replied "ab-
solutely critical" since so many
BOCC votes go 3-2 (three Clewis-
ton area votes to two LaBelle area
votes).
He felt the proposed expan-
sion of Airglades Industrial Park
outside of Clewiston is taking
a lot of money and will require
even more.
He is concerned about keep-
ing the spending down. Holding
down taxes in these difficult eco-
nomic times is the biggest chal-
lenge in his estimation.
Mr. Chapman told the audi-
ence that they need to hold offi-
cials accountable in these difficult


economic times.
He said we have to hold our
own against the big coastal coun-
ties. Elections, he said, are about
the future.
LaBelle businessman Don
Davis (NPA) served as a Hendry
County commissioner.
He said the commission's job
is to run the people's business
- and a lot of bad choices have
been made in recent years that af-
fect everyone's pocketbook.
He argued that the county's
single district voting system is at
fault.


If all county voters cast ballots
for each district's commissioner,
he said representation would im-
prove because the commission-
ers would be more accountable.
He explained that commis-
sioners would still run from their
district, but would be voted on
countywide and would get the
county "back on track."
Republican Ray Pittman, a
state certified contractor and
businessman, said he is a fiscal
conservative.
As a commissioner he would
look for the "win-win" situations.
In light of the proposed USSC
sale, he said the county will have
to take a different direction than
ever before.
He agreed the commission
has a lot of 3-2 votes and said a
commissioner is needed who
can identify with both sides of the
county and fight for change in a
positive way.
With regard to the Airglades
expansion, he is in favor of going
slower and not running utilities
to empty lots hoping to attract in-
dustries.
The county is not in the real
estate business, he asserted. As a
pilot, he noted that general avia-
tion airports are not money mak-
ers.
He said the district and coun-
ty's biggest challenge is the de-
cline of the tax role and budget
cuts.
He said we need to look at the
2002-03 budgets and make some
hard choices.
He noted that the USSC sale
will affect the western side of the
county differently than the east.
Mr. Pittman said the county
needs to be concerned about its
children, schools and recreation
- these are the things that will at-
tract people and business to the
area.
Democrat Ramon Rodriguez
said that, if elected, he would re-
tire from his job at Embarq and
devote himself to being a full-time
commissioner.
He said he would work for
consensus to move forward. He
would look for replacements for
the businesses the county is los-
ing.

County Commission
District 5
Only Karson Turner (Dem) at-
tended the candidate forum. He
used his time to introduce himself


and explain his background.
A Clewiston graduate, he
coached college football and is
now a local businessman.
He urged caution on subjects
like the Airglades expansion.
Incumbent Bo Pelham, also
a Democrat, was not available
for the forum. This race will go
straight to the November ballot.

Superintendent of
Schools
Democrat Scott Cooper noted
the advances and the challenges
of today's schools.
Hendry County schools re-
cently received an overall B grade
in school FCATs for the first time
and urged a good mix of voca-
tional and academic classes.
He noted his background
in community affairs as well as
school affairs.
He has been a teacher, admin-
istrator and has experience on
both sides of labor relations. He
said he is the only candidate with
33 years of proven service to the
students.
During the question portion
of the program, Mr. Cooper said
he feels FCAT is a a valid tool but
has been used by the state for
the wrong purposes sometimes.
Grading schools on a single test is
wrong, he said.
He said he would prioritize
budget needs to maximize educa-
tion at the classroom level.
To keep quality teachers, he
said he would aggressively mar-
ket Hendry County to attract the
best and brightest.
He said he would have a con-
servative fiscal program, having
routinely saved the district mon-
ey.
He said the Golden Apple is a
great teacher reward.
He said the district has 1,000
teachers, 7,000 students and asked
the audience who they want to
be responsible for a multi-million
dollar budget.
Republican Robert Egley also
noted his extensive background
in education as an administrator,
including the current Principal of
Clewiston High School.
All his experience has led him
to seek'this position, he said.
Mr. Egley said Hendry schools
do not have enough courses for
students who are high achiev-
ers, or enough support for low
achievers.
He feels the district needs to

& A Message from Sheriff Ronnie Lee:
Dear Friends,

In November 2004, the good people of Hendry County voted to make me their Sheriff again. They put their faith in me
to make Hendry County a safer, more wholesome community where they can live, work, play and raise their families.
I have worked very hard during this time to build and maintain good, working relationships with local, state and
federal law enforcement agencies so that we could benefit from their expertise. I created and continue to promote, an
"open door" policy, inviting the public to talk to me about what is important to them. In 2004 I vowed, if elected, to
make certain changes dealing with drugs, chops shop, prostitution, jail and the safety of our children. I have worked
diligently to accomplish those changes, exceeding expectations. But my work, is not done. I need to continue the
progress that we have started and I need your help and your vote.

My strong educational background, 20 years of active and reserve military service and more than 37 years of law
enforcement experience at local, state and federal levels, have given me the solid foundation on which I have built
tremendous experience that I bring to this position. Soon I will have been your Sheriff for almost 8 years, I have the
experience and the know-how to serve you. No other candidate has these qualifications or experience. No other
candidate knows what Hendry County wants, expects and deserves from their Sheriff.

I know what you want in your Sheriff...you have told me and I have listened. I know it takes more than one person to
be successful; it takes many people who are willing to give time and commitment to their community. I have dedicated
my life and I am ready to continue the commitment. Please support your Sheriff by voting and Re-Electing me
to continue the job.
