-TRIM notices come out August 22


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
On August 22, the Hendry
County Property Appraiser's Of-
fice will mail out some 37,000
TRIM notice of proposed taxes.
This year the TRIM notices
'have a new look they're larger
and easier to read but the impor-
tant difference is that they reflect
changes dictated by Amendment
1 voted into law last January.
Using the preliminary mill-
age rate of 8.9 mills set by the
Hendry County Commissioners,
the Property Appraiser's. office


has calculated ad valorem taxes
for each resident and business
owner in the county, The TRIM
will provide the first inkling for
Hendry County residents of what
they can expect on their ultimate
property tax bill for 2008.
These preliminary numbers
may come as a surprise to some
residents. Much hype surround-
ed the passage of Amendment 1
last January, which was meant
to provide a break on property
taxes.
Amendment I has further
complicated an already complex
system of calculating ad valorem


taxes based on the interaction of
property values, various exemp-
tions and millage rates.
Hendry County has a total of
6,650 homesteaded properties.
* Of these, 4,430 (with an assessed
value of over $50,000) will see a
benefit from Amendment 1.
The second $25,000 of the
Homestead Exemption which
came from Amendment 1 does
not apply to the school board
taxes and kicks in at the $50,000-
$75,000 assessed value level. So,
if you're home's assessed value
is below $50,000, you will not
see any benefit from that portion


Business: Expanding the role of citrus

lieves his new process will revolutionize the food industry.


Process promises health benefits


By Patty Brant

What's made from citrus
peel, is high in antioxidants,
low in carbohydrates, gluten
free and has scientists scratch-
ing their heads?
Well, it's creator calls it Cit-
ruSmart and is manufacturing
Sit right here in LaBelle. Robert
Jones and his team can hardly
contain their excitement they
are convinced this discovery
will create a revolution in the
food and health industries.
Good nutrition isn't just a
hot topic it's quite literally a
matter of life and death. It cer-
tainly plays a large role in the
quality of life. Eating habits
have eroded in recent decades,
with fast food often serving as a
substitute for wholesome natu-
ral meals.
So when a breakthrough in
nutrition comes along, every-
one from scientists to mothers
can appreciate the ramifica-


tions.
Robert has been chasing
such a breakthrough for the
last 30 years. He believes he's
finally got the key that can pro-
vide better nutrition and "build
his business at the same time.
To put the icing on the cake,
his breakthrough is based on
a "throwaway" item citrus
peel.
President of the Alarma Cor-
poration, Robert is an engineer
by training. Alarma Corp. has
leased 10,000 square feet at Du-
da's processing plant on SR 29S
and has put in a $5 million plant
since just last August. Alarma is
leasing the space from Duda
for the next five years.
Dubbed CitruSmart, his
products are made from
the "waste" after the fruit is
squeezed. Alarma uses the
peel, pulp and seeds every-
thing but the juice itself. Alarma
Corp. has submitted his unique
process for a process patent,


First ever Cowboy Fall

Football Camp a success


This past week the LaBelle
High School Football Coach-
ing Staff put on a Fall Football,
Camp that was a big hit! The
camp was for high school-
aged students interested in the
game of football. The camp-
ers arrived for check-in on
Wednesday, August 6, and set
up residence in the gym at La-
Belle High School. At midnight
August the 7th the lights on the
game field were turned on and
the campers participated in
midnight practice, signifying
the upcoming start of football
season.
While at the camp, players


participated in numerous drills
as well as speed and strength
testing. There were also some
very interesting speakers who
came to talk to the players
about some of the difficult
challenges and decisions that
await them in life. Mr. John
Chandley, of LaBelle, 'spoke
to the players about drug and
alcohol abuse and how it af-
fected his life, and how he beat
the addiction. L.W. Howard,
the first ever quarterback for
the Cowboys, spoke on the last
day of the camp about attitude

which should come through in
18 months to two years.
The orange part of the peel
(called the flavedo or zest) ren-
ders citrus oil. The white part
of the peel and the rest of the
orange are ground to various
-degrees, from coarse to fine.
The seeds can be sold to Japan
where they are frozen or dried
for medications. Robert says
that's just the beginning. Alar-
ma is developing more prod-
ucts and markets now.

Madison, Wisconsin, set the

of Amendment 1.
According to Property Ap-
praiser's Office, 2,213 (those
with an assessed value of under
$50,000) will not see a benefit
from Amendment 1.
Hendry County will have
2,500 homesteaded properties
that will see a tax increase. On
95 percent of these properties,
the market value went down
over the past year, however, their
assessed value increased.
Keep in mind that assessed
values always increase some-
what when improvements have
been made to the property or go


down if improvements are re-
moved (a garage is demolished
or pool removed).
The Property Appraiser's Of-
fice does a physical review of all
properties every five years, and
gleans appropriate information
from building/demolitiont per-
mits.

peel with no added chemicals,
all in food grade stainless steel
equipment.
Alarma is developing a vari-
ety of products from citrus peel
and an array of applications for
them. Starting with the "flour" -
actually the fiber milled into vari-
ous degrees of coarseness Rob-
ert said CitruSmart's dry mass is
amazing the experts. It has some
83 percent fiber content.
The fiber can be added com-
mercially to snacks. Robert said
he is on the verge of signing con-
tracts with huge conglomerates
like General Mills, Ralston, Post
and Campbells, which are inter-
ested in using CitruSmart as an
additive to sauces, cereals, snack
foods and the like.
It can be used in "veggie"
food ingredients and one major
supermarket chain is looking at
it as an additive to veggie burgers
and crab meat.
The coarse ground peel can
even be used to clean up envi-
ronmental spills and do. it bet-
ter than products on the market
now, Robert asserts.
With the cost of other fibers
increasing and high interest in
health concerns, Robert is aware
that timing has a big influence
on the success of his process.
He said the University of Alas-
ka Fairbanks found that his non-
oil citrus peel attracts heavy met-
als at a very high rate making it
perfect for waste water remedia-
tion. After that, the entire mass
can simply be burned.
Up till now, processed citrus
peel has been used mostly as a
cattle feed supplement. Current
peel processing yields terpene
emissions, harmful volatile or-
ganic compounds as confirmed
by the EPA.
Another result of Robert's
process is pectin pomace, used
as a gelling agent. At this time,
Robert said all of this substance
is imported because the old pro-
cess is so polluting. CitruSmart is
also a natural preservative that
can extend product shelf life and
possibly eliminate the need to

"Skeeler" Johnson requested

tion rates, but was denied by
the board. He reasoned that the
fire department needed a bigger
cushion in its contingencies fund.,
However, the board felt it could
extend the break to taxpayers for
another year.
Mayor Paul Puletti said that, in
case of emergency, the city can
borrow from the general fund..
Next year the board may con-
sider looking at increasing the
fire budget, probably back to the
scale of two years ago. Commis-
sioner Dave Lyons was assured
that the department has three

vided for in this year's and next
year's budgets.


use BHA or BHT.
Just recently, the company's
in-house food nutritionist con-
firmed that their Alarma Cit-
ruSmart" has a major shelf life
extension on 5, 7 and 9 grain
bread products; up to and con-
firmed .five times that of control
samples.
According to Robert, "We're
just finding out how 'smart' Cit-
ruSmart citrus peel fiber flour
is!" His process makes a food
grade citrus oil marketable for
flavoring, cleaners, fragrances
and aroma therapy.
The sugar and debittered
sugar from peel has a market
in Latin America where it can
be added to the native orange
juice.
A special TASTE evaporator
has been converted to process
the sugar emulsion without us-
ing waste heat.
Sugars derived from citrus
were previously tainted with
quick lime and so were restrict-
ed to non-human use. With Rob-
ert's process, it can be used in
drinks and in the juice industry.
Both the ethanol and spirit dis-
tilling industries are markets for
bittersweet.sugar.
The good news keeps com-
ing. It looks like CitruSmart's
"citrus peel sugar concentrate" is


gaining significant interest from
a major soft drink company as
well. Testing of this concentrate
is in its second phase.
Even the seeds are used in
Europe to produce medications.
Henry Heisler, plant manager
of Duda's facility on SR 29, said
CitruSmart is leasing the old feed
mill operation space that hasn't
been used for about three years
when it became no longer feasi-
ble to operate. They used to haul
their citrus waste out to their
cows, but feel this is a better use
of the product.
Mr. Heisler said Duda runs
about 50 truck loads per day dur-
ing the season at the plant. Each
truck hauls some 35,000 pounds
of fruit. That's CitruSmart's raw
material.
Alarma General Manager Vic-
tor Shough met Robert six years
ago and quickly became a be-
liever. "This is the next best thing
for citrus," he said, "It's the way
the citrus .industry will go."
In fact, Robert said his process
has actually made citrus peel
more valuable than the juice,
with all its nutritional, fiber and
medicinal uses. The uses seem
to grow each week, he adds.
Just back from the Interna-
tional Food Technologies Show
in New Orleans, Robert is even


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
CitruSmart's new processes manufacture products like fiber
"flour" of varying degrees of coarseness, dried seeds and
oils all of which owner Robert Jones is finding more and
more uses for.


Millage set
The board moved to set next
year's millage at 3 again, even
though city's valuation has de-
creased, feeling "it' still Works'."
The .possibility of Walgreens
opening a store on the site of the
LaBelle Trade Center could be
a huge benefit if it happens, ac-
cording to Mayor Puletti.
The board hopes to begin its
budget review earlier next year.

In other business:
Gateway signs will be pro-
duced in bronze and white.
"Welcome to LaBelle" will be
moved outside the city logo bor-
der to make it larger. Bids will be
going out for the signs.
The regular city commission
meeting for August. has been
moved to Thursday, August 21,
since four of the commissioners
will be at the League of Cities


meeting in Tampa. Meetings be-
gin at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
The City of LaBelle will con-
tribute to a special counsel be-
ing hired to guide, local interests
through the United States Sugar
Corp. sale.
The City of Clewiston is con-
tributing some 30 percent of the
$25,000 plus expenses to hire the
counsel; the county is also shar-
ing in the cost. Commissioners
approved footing ten percent or
up to $4,000 for the effort.


Correction

A story in the August 7 issue
covering the July 17 candidate's
forum misstated the number of
teachers in the Hendry County
School District. There are approx-
imately 500 teachers working in
the district. We regret the error.


more excited about his process-
es after seeing the interest shown
by potential customers there.
Robert said this facility will
create jobs. He expects it to be in
full swing this fall and is getting
orders lined up. The plant will
operate 24 hours, five-six days a
week this fall and he looks for-
ward to being able to expand.
He is sure his new processes will
provide new vigor to the citrus
industry.
For the past 13 years Robert
has concentrated his efforts on
his process, but the dream be-
gan with a concept that occurred
to him some 32 years ago while
he was working for Birds Eye Di-


vision of General Foods.
It gradually evolved from a
garage project to the current $5


million facility. Robert and his
colleagues are sure it's just the
beginning.

Mistrial in Muse murder case


by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- August 5
was the first day of a murder trial
whereby a jury was chosen, fol-
lowed the next day by initial testi-
mony August 6.
The trial was held in the court
room on the second floor of the
Glades County courthouse. Jessy
Castelucci, 26, was the defendant
charged with second degree mur-
der with a firearm. He was alleged
to have killed a Lee County man,
Davrorijon Bakeev, whose buried
remains were located on August
20, 2007 at a rural residence in
Muse.
The deceased had been re-
ported missing on November
23, 2002. Davronjon Bakeev, 29,
was from Uzbekistan and mar-
ried to a United States citizen. It is
unclear if Davronjon Bakeev was
in the country on a student visa;
worker visa or as an immigrant.
According to officials, it was be-
lieved that Mr. Bakeev-went to see
his estranged wife, their children
and his sister-in-law in Muse. He
was allegedly attacked, and shot
by Jessy Castelucci. Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) special agents believe that
the deceased's wife, Hadassah
Bakeev, may have arranged for
Mr. Castelucci to kill Mr. Bakeev in
exchange for a car.
On August 7, prosecuting at-
torneys, Dennis Wallace and Dan
Cavanaugh, brought forth several
witnesses, expert witnesses and
evidence materials. FDLE crime
lab analyst, Karen Cooper, "su-


pervised the excavation of the
remains from the Muse property.
During the trial she was given
evidence to examine and identify.
She commented on a plastic bag
she had previously examined at
the gravesite.
"It appears to be a bag collect-
ed from around the skull of the
victim," Ms. Cooper said.
One of the experts was Dr.
Heather Walsh-Haney, Florida
Gulf Coast University forensic an-
thropologist. Her duties are to as-
sist medical examiners and deter-
mine the biological profile of the
remains, such as ancestry, height,
and sex. Ms. Walsh-Haney fourld
a trauma to the third vertebrae of
the neck caused by a projectile.
A portion of flooring, central
air duct-work and insulation from
the residence were presented as
the source of where a bullet came
to rest after being fired. The bul-
let, duct tape, a plastic bag and a
shell casing were also submitted
as evidence. However, forensic
investigation experts were unable
to match. the bullet to the shell
casing; and were unable to match
the bullet or shell casing to fire-
arms found at the residence. La-
tent fingerprints were not found,
either. According to experts this
may be due to disintegration of
the items upon discharge, or' to
the length of time the items were
buried in soil.
The mother-in-law of the de-
ceased, Betty Farabee, was intro-
duced as a witness. Under oath,
Ms. Farabee recalled how she and
the children were quickly ushered
on a trip to Tampa in 2002. This


would be around the time of the
incident. She recalled fragments
of the trip and pieces of conversa-
tions held while they were away.
Following her testimony, de-
fense attorney, Richard Sullivan
asked Judge Jack Lundy to de-
clare a mistrial for he believed
Ms. Farabee repeated a state-
ment already deemed inadmis-
sible. Judge Lundy mentioned he
would require some time to think
about the request; however, he
would allow the trial to continue
until he came to a decision.
Joseph Forpones, an inmate
from the Glades County jail, was
introduced as the next witness.
Mr. Forpones testified that, one
night during their incarceration
together, Jessy Castelucci had
confided to him about his involve-
ment in the murder. This testi-
mony Was challenged by Richard
Sullivan, who commented Jessy
Castelucci had previously com-
plained that Joseph Forpones had
read Castelucci's discovery docu-
ments. These documents are the
collection of research done by
attorneys and law enforcement
officials; and they contain vital
and personal information about
the defendant and the alleged in-
cident.
A recess was called, and short-
ly after the court resumed, Judge
Lundy granted a motion for mis-
trial.
"There will be another trial,
but it is not scheduled yet," said
Mr. Sullivan.

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
The other day I had the WD40
can in my hand, just walking
around, when I had to turn a light
on with a hanging chain.
Now this chain has been hard
to. pull since I moved in.,I've bro-
ken the chain twice and worried
about it breaking off way up in
it's innards. Well, a light bulb
went off in my brain, granted it
was dim, sort of like a night light
which is about 7 watts, BUT still
a bulb. I sprayed the chain where
it comes out of the fixture and it
was like a miracle. I immediately
went around like a a crazy wom-
an and sprayed all the chains in
the house. Then I started on the
windows.
When working on a ladder,
Pudgie's law says, you WILL drop
a tool in the first two minutes. To
keep them from falling off. the
ladder shelf just get a household
basket, the plastic ones with all
the slits on the sides, and attach
it with a bungee cord: Put all your
working junk in it.
For a quick paint touch-up job,


attach a piece of sponge or clean
carpet scrap to a clothes pin. If
necessary I will describe a clothes
pin in detail to you young whip-,
per-snappers.
When you get new carpet
it would be wise to save some
scraps. They make good furniture
movers when you put them under
th legs, carpet side down.
Linda Reecer reminded me of
some more reasons that the Eng-
lish language is so difficult: Upon
seeing the tear in the painting I
shed a tear ... OR ... When shot at
the dove dove into the bushes.

Letters to the Editor


To the Mayor and City
Commissioners,
It's budget time again and tough
decisions will have to be made.
I would like to encourage you to
consider funding for the Passive
Recreational Park. We already have
a permit from the Army Corp. to
work on the river bank and I'm
confident when SFWMD receives
the Management Plan it will be ap-
proved.
I've expressed my concerns to
the Mayor that with the US Sugar
deal the SFWMD is looking at all
properties that they could surplus
to pay for the deal. I would hate to
lose the opportunity that has been
presented itself to the City by not
positively showing our intentions
to developed the park.
Respectfully,
Craig Bartoshuk
Chairman of the Board
Passive Recreational Park

Feed the Need
August 2008
Dear Community Patrons,
Compelled by God's vision,
Freedom Fellowship Ministries
has established Freedom Counsel-
ing and Services Center. A refuge
where solid-faith based counseling
and special needs services such as,
food pantry and emergency provi-
sions can be made available to the
community.
Feed the Need Food Pantry is a
501(c)3 faith-based ministry, pro-
viding both emergency and short-
term food for people in need. Feed
the Need Food Pantry is a service
provided for individuals, couples,
and families regardless of race,
creed, gender, or socioeconomic
status. You do not need to be a
member of a church to receive ser-
vices. This food pantry promises to
provide food to all those in need ac-
cording to the guidelines set forth
by God for this ministry. Families
in need of our services are referred
to us from agencies, churches, and
other sources.
We have a team of staffers that
will glean which is a biblical initia-
tive. Those gleaners in this ministry
will be responsible for locating busi-
ness' that have an over abundance
of food and are willing to donate to
feed the hungry in our community.
Perishable and Nonperishable food
items will be available through this
food service. FCSC Feed the Need
Food pantry, does receive dona-
tions of money and/or food from
individuals as well as any other or-
ganization under Freedom Fellow-
ship Ministries 501 (c)3. One hun-
dred percent of all funds received
for the food pantry will be used to
purchase food. Please note, there
will be an application process for
all of those needing assistance.
All emergency cases will be based
upon and determined according to
the emergency at hand and Feed
the Needs resources at hand. These
things will be determined upon in-
terview and evaluation.
Feed the Need Food Pantry
wants to embrace people with the
compassion of Christ, giving hope
and healing for a changed life,
helping them find their way to God
and His perfect will for their lives.
By embrace we mean to wel-
come, to encircle out arms
By people we mean those with
severely limited resources


By compassion we mean to
love and touch others, as Christ
loved us
By hope we mean providing
encouragement and resources for
a new start
By healing we mean being re-
stored in body, mind, and spirit
through a personal relationship
with Jesus Christ
By. changed life we mean going
in a new direction and to realize
our God-given purpose
By way we mean having the op-
portunity to live a productive life for
Jesus Christ
According to the National Law
Center on Homelessness and Pov-
erty approximately 3-5 million
people nationally, 1.35 million chil-
dren, are likely to experience pov-
erty in a given year. This disturbing
figure represents more than the
population of the city of Chicago
(2,900,000). These statistics di-
rectly impact all of us in the United
States. As Freedom Counseling and
Services Center steps out to help
and further God's Kingdom, we be-
lieve that He will bless and multiply
not only our needs, but the needs
of others. Philippines 4:19, states,
"And my God shall supply all your
needs according to His riches in
glory by Jesus Christ." We are en-
deavoring through the power of Je-
sus Christ to teach a biblical fact...
We were all created to be free!
Should you decide to offer your
resources to help with, this en-
deavor, please know that God will
surely bless your desire and willing-
ness to help those that are less for-
tunate. In Luke 6:38, it states, "Give,
and it shall be given to you: good
measure, pressed down, shaken
together, and running over it will
be put into your bosom. For with
the same measure that you use, it
will be measured back to you."

"Boxing" Lessons
With increasing frequency, like
constantly, have you noticed how
all the politicians, regardless of
party, at all levels, are talking down,
not at us?
Objective communication has
become totally subjective with
unanimous decisions to deter-
mine, without dialogue, What
is best for everyone. Through a
process of manipulated political
moves such as gerrymandering,
controlled grant authorizations and
social engineering they propose to
remodel us all into what they deem
an acceptable, subjective, citizen
population. Through a systematic
erosion of moral erosion tactics
they have subjugated the family
structure, and all related socially re-
sponsive. issues into a nanny state,
wherein all facets of self-sufficiency
have been neutered. Neutered to
the extent that candidates for the
highest office in the USA have tak-
en on the roles of "saviors" in: this
the 21st century of our Lord.
It's time to start taking "boxing
lessons" and strike back. By "box-
ing lessons" I mean, "think outside
of the box." Although it doesn't
apply to elected officials, common
'folks, like us, still use common
sense and logic to make our deci-
sions and solve problems. That
would be all good and proper if it
were a level playing field, but it's
not, so we have to start "thinking


outside the box" of common sense
and logic, without giving up on it.
Some will be saying, if they even
read this article, "OK big mouth!
Put your money where your mouth
is!" But unlike the politicians, who
put our money where their mouth
is, and at the risk of exposing my-
self in public, I'll take a shot at it.
Keeping in mind that we didn't
get in the current budgetary crisis
over night, and there is not just
one single act that can undo all the
bloated, procrastinated inactions,
for starters, I'll propose that we fo-
cus on just one basic process as a
base corrective action. That action
is to consolidate staff service func-
tions and facilities thereby elimi-
nating the bureaucratic duplicity of
functions that exist as a result of the
serendipitous, economics bubbles
of the past three years. Consolidat-
ing singularly individual common
functions into one major functional
operating group, can and' will ad-
dress the costs and inefficiencies
forced on the individuals duplicity
of functions in the name of produc-
tivity. All levels of the bureaucratic
process, posing as government ser-
vices, could and can benefit from
consolidation, so when the next
"panic, economic or whatever hap-
pens, eons will not be required to
quickly, and economically address
the issues with remedial actions,
not words.
An example currently on the na-
tional level, is the so-called "Energy
Crisis." At the state level, the real
estate taxes and insurance fiascos
continue to circle looking for vic-
tims.
Last, and always on the "dirty"
end of the stick, are the county and
city pinatas, just waiting for total
impact. Many years ago I was in-
terviewing for a job and the inter-
view required that I answer what
they called an "Ethical Dilemma"
question. The question was, "You
are driving down the road on a
wild stormy night, when you pass a
bus stop and you see three people
waiting for a bus. One is an old lady
who looks as if she is about to die.
The other is an old friend who once
saved your life, and the third is a
knockout blonde female that you
know is the perfect partner you've
been dreaming about." The ques-
tion then becomes, "Which one
would you choose to offer a ride to,
knowing that you have only room
for one passenger?"
This is where "Ethical Dilemma"
comes into play. You could pick up,
the old lady because she is going
to die, and. thereby you save her
first? Or should you take your old
friend because he once saved your
life, and this would be the perfect
chance to repay him? What about
that perfect mate? If you don't do
something now, you may never be
able to find that perfect mate again.
To make a long story reasonably
short, I chose the old lady, and out
of 200 applicants, only one came
up with the winning answer,'and it
wasn't me.
The chosen applicant's winning
answer was, "I would give- the car
keys to my old friend and let him
take the old lady to the hospital. I
would then stay behind and wait
for the bus with the partner of my
dreams."
So what's the point of the story
of my losing job application story?
Many times we can gain more if
we are able to give up our con-


ventional, common sense and
logic, and "think outside the box."
Particularly when we know that
politicians gave up that sense of
common sense and logic as soon
they got the office, and need only
to satisfy the ruling forces of special
interests and the lobbying cornuco-
pia colossuses.
So if we are to end up with that
"partner of our dreams" without
giving up our principles, we need
to step into the ring and get serious
about putting those "Boxing Les-
sons" to work.
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville

Keep Kathy Smith
Public Defender.
I am writing in support of Kathy
Smith, for the position of Public
Defender for the 20th Judicial Cir-
cuit. Kathy has been an integral
part of the Public Defender's office
for eighteen.years, thirteen in a se-
nior management position, while
still handling a full load of her own
cases. Kathy Smith has devoted her
entire career to the Public Defend-
er's office because she believes in
the necessity for a high quality, car-
ing Public Defenders office.
Kathy Smith implemented two
very important programs during
her tenure, DRUG COURT and
MENTAL HEALTH COURT. DRUG
COURT gives drug addicts an op-
portunity to get help for their addic-
tions, rather than languish in jail,
filling critical jail space. Smith's
similar program, MENTAL HEALTH
COURT has done the same for
mentally ill people who, since the
closing of G. Pierce Wood Mental
Hospital, would otherwise remain
in our jail system. Since the incep-
tion of both programs by Kathy
Smith, thousands of mentally ill
people and drug,addicts have been
helped. These programs are fully
supported by all five county. Sheriffs
and State Attorney Steve Russell.
Because of her stellar experi-
ence quotient and her accomplish-
ments in the office, Kathy Smith
was picked by Governor Crist to
fill the 20th Judicial Circuit Public
Defender position after the passing
of Public Defender Robert Jacobs
earlier this year. Smith has the
endorsement of retired Public De-
fender Douglas Midgley and retired
State Attorney Joe D'Alessandro.
Kathy's primary opponent in the
Republican primary, Brian Boyle
was rejected by the Governor's of-
fice to be the Public Defender for
professional and personal reasons.
Boyle who has only 2 years expe-
rience as an assistant Public De-
fender, has said that DRUG COURT
and MENTAL HEALTH COURT are
a complete waste of time. Anyone
who does not support these much
needed programs for our commu-
nity does not deserve our vote.
I agree with Governor Crist,
Kathy Smith is the best candidate
for the office.

A short course in human relationships


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
Recently, I read about how
several years
ago a new breed -I
of horses was
tested in Can-
ada. Research-
ers found that
one horse could
pull an eight-ton
load. When they I
teamed twoI
horses together Les
they anticipated Morgan
that the horses would pull 16 or
18 tons. To their surprise, they
pulled a 30-ton load. This is the
principle of synergism. Synergism
-states that two or more objects
working together can produce
a greater effect than the objects


working independently of each
other. And what is true for horses
is even truer with humans. When
we work with others, much more
is accomplished than if we do the
"Lone Ranger" gig.
Spiritually, the Holy Spirit
works in our relationships creat-
ing a spiritual synergism, referred
to in Scripture as the principle of
unity. Paul says, "Make every ef-
fort to keep the unity of the Spirit
through the bond of peace" (Eph
4:3). While it may be tough to do
in some situations, our best effort
to work with others yields a far
greater result.
Accomplishing your goals
in life depends on your ability
to work with others. The word
"unity" means a state of oneness,
agreement and coherence; the
combination of separate parts


into a connected whole; and dif-
ferent people working together
for a common purpose.
Jesus, who certainly under-
stood relationships better than'
any who ever walked God's green
earth, underscored the principle
of synergism in prayer: "Again I
tell you, that if.any two of you on
earth agree about anything you
ask for it will be done for you by
my Father in heaven. For where
two or three come together in
my name, there I am with them"
(Matt 18:19- 20).
Here is a short course in hu-
man relationships that I believe
will be beneficial.
6 most important words in the
English language: "I admit I made
a mistake"
5 most important words: "You
did a good job."


4 most important words:
"What is your opinion?"
3 most important words: "If
you please" (or "I love you", take
your pick!)
2 most important words:
"Thank you."
1 most important word: "We"
Least important word: "I"
Come on it's time to junk
this "Lone Ranger" stuff. After all,
even he had Tonto!
Get connected with others and
discover God's amazing power of
spiritual synergism. Need an idea
on how to get started? Try attend-
ing the church of your choice this
weekend!

H.E.S.PA. drive successful


The Hendry Educational Sup-
port Personnel held its first ever
Back to School event August 3
at U-Save. For those of you that
are not familiar with our asso-
ciation, H.E.S.P.A. members are
behind the scene employees of
our school system. They are the
people that drive your children
safely to school, make sure your
child has a nutritious meal, ban-
dage their scrapes or something'
as simple as a kind word to make
your child feel special.
With the difficult financial
times we are facing H.E.S.P.A.
members wanted to do some-
thing for the children in our com-
munity. We have held fundraisers
throughout the year and received
donations from local businesses.
The results of our hard work ex-
ceeded our expectations by dis-
tributing 700 school supply bags
in three hours. Free hair cuts were
a hit from trims to Mohawks. Sis-
sy Pack a local hairdresser, along
with Amanda Steelman (Concep-
tion) formally of LaBelle, and
co-worker Bonnie traveled from
Orlando to cut hair.
The backpack prize packages
valued at $80 each were won
by Michele Salazar (Disney Prin-
cess), a third grader at C.O.E.,
and Angie Vargas (Disney Cars), a
third grader at L.E.S.
We also gave away 460 items
of new clothing or shoes to ele-
mentary level students. Tris Chap-
man donated 300 backpacks and
distributed them with the help of
his wife, Donna. We would like
to thank our local businesses that
made this event possible and ask
you to support those that give
back to our community: Altman
Fencing, Barron Library, Crystal
Clear Fountains, D.O.T. (Gloria
Seay), Family Eye Care, First Bank
of Clewiston, Hendry County
Maintenance, Kid Care (Sue Re-
ese), O'Ferrell's Florist, Olde Cy-


press Bank, Partin Plants (Jack
Partin), Payroll Solutions, Save
A Lot, Seacoast National Bank,
State Farm Ins., Richard Sullivan
PA, U-Save and Winn Dixie.
Residents in our community
that also opened their hearts and
wallets to make this event a suc-
cess are Tony Barnes, Scott Coo-
per, Tommy/Beveriy Greenwood,
Cheryl Hicks, Chris Livingston,
Ronnie/Jeannie Lynch, Corrine
Palmer, Sue Pipkins and the Steel-
man family. Scott McQueen did
a wonderful job with his artistic
ability making our signs for this
event. We would like to send a
special Thank You to David Childs.
He is the manager of U-Save. He
went above and beyond to make
sure that we had everything we
needed for this event to suc-
ceed. Last but not least we need
to thank all H.E.S.P.A. members,
Hendry County Employees and
local residents that volunteered
their Sunday to help prepare your
child for school: Nikki Baker, Ken

school office for the time sched-
ule. Breakfast is the most impor-
tant meal and needs to be a part
of your child's educational day.

ment occur when breakfast is

levels of "asanas" or postures and
"pranayama," a rhythmic control
of the breath, to improve body
alignment, build strength and
quiet the restless mind in order
to focus on the attainment of this
goal. lyengar yoga is a researched
yoga discipline developed over 70
years ago by BKS lyengar that is
firmly based on individual devel-
opment and practice.

lege's football program from the
ground up. He followed a busi-
ness model, managed a small
budget and overcame obstacles
to establish Huntington's pro-
gram. It was a lot of responsibil-
ity for a young man, but Mr. Turn-
er says he's always been "ahead
of the curve." In fact, he said he
was the youngest offensive coor-
dinator in college football at the
age of 25.
All this, he feels, leads him to
his bid for commission seat Dis-

needs to take a hard look at the

diture from A to Z, making sure
all capital improvements are jus-
tified. Resist snap judgements, he

hard as possible, especially with
costs increasing.
Mr. Turner feels his strongest
points are his ability to grasp dif-
ficult concepts in new ways and
his "relentless" personality.
He feels Hendry County has
a lot of resources that have not
been capitalized on. For instance,
located in the central part of the
state, Hendry County is a perfect
location to help distribution cen-
ters cut travel costs.
It is the perfect "jumping off"
place for large companies to ser-
vice large markets and Hendry
County should be courting them,
he said.
Another 21st Century oppor-
tunity for Hendry County is green
energy.
Although cloud cover is often
cited as a reason Florida is not a
good candidate for solar energy
generation, Mr. Turner points out
that Germany, which has much
cloudier skies, is Europe's top so-
lar energy producer. Solar energy
would be a natural for Hendry
County and a boon to its work
force, he believes.
He said Airglades Industrial
Park outside of Clewiston may
have a future if Hendry County
aggressively seeks good tenants.
He said, thus far, the county has
done a sub-par job of monitoring
clients there.

AN ORDINANCE OF HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA

SPECIFICALLY ADOPTING A PUBLIC EDUCATION

Janet B. Taylor, Chair
Hendry County Board of County Commissioners


Only two businesses have
leased there and neither panned
out.
He believes the county should
not put a lot of effort into a proj-
ect that is not working. He does
believe that there are businesses
that would like to come and they
should be courted.
Taxpayers have a right to a
solid return on the taxes they pay
and this county needs to take a
good look at the services it pro-
vides, especially with its minute
tax base, Mr. Turner said.
Mr. Turner would like to see
better rapport between the coun-
ty, both cities and the school
board.
If elected, in four years he said
the real effects of the US Sugar
sale will be better known and


the county should be charting a
course for the future and that of
its residents.
Federal and state grants and
rapport are increasingly neces-
sary especially for small county
success.
Mr. Turner wants Hendry
County to "actively, aggressive-
ly" seek those relationships. He
questions why SR 80 four-laning
is still not complete since Florida
knows this is a legitimate need.
Mr. Turner wants the county
to follow a different mindset that
in the past. He wants to see to
help- the entire county pull to-
gether.
He believes in one Hendry
County although commission-
ers are elected by district. Each
should have the best interests of

the entire county at heart, add-
ing: "Our entire county first and
foremost." As the commissioner
from the largest, most centrally
located district, Mr. Turner be-
lieves he would be in a unique
position to bring the entire coun-
ty together.
"I see the dissension at com-
mission meetings," he said, "I
could be the swing vote account-
able to the central, east and west
districts."
He sees "easy fixes" for some
county problems, such as better
management of MSBU funds to
allow for routine maintenance in
roads and drainage infrastructure
in Pioneer Plantation;
Better coordination with the
school board to prepare a good
workforce;


Making sure local contractors
receive notification of county
contracts being let for bids.
He feels his best quality is his
ability to inspire an dwork for a
common goal.
He believes he's a motivator
able to engender believe in a
concept. He said he seeks infor-
mation, does his research and is
able to make decisions based on
the good of the whole.
He feels it's time for a new era.
"The old generation did a great
job of creating this county. It's
time to take care of that legacy."
Communication is the key to
understanding all the residents,
he said, and face-to-face interac-
tion with voters from Hooker's
Point to Felda will translate into
better government for all.

By Chip Wilson
Statewide Disability Coordinator
For many years, Florida has
been infamous for the, number of
hurricanes which have impacted
the state. While this is true, our
population is also affected by oth-
er types of disasters. Several years
ago, wildfires were rampant and
thousands of acres of .land were
burned, dozens of houses were
lost, and many lives were changed
forever. Just over a year ago, tor-
nadoes were responsible for over
a dozen deaths in the central part
of the state. These events under-
score the need to have a good,
comprehensive preparedness
plan especially for people with
disabilities.
Disaster preparedness for
people with disabilities can pres-
ent unique problems due to each
person's disability. Some people
are dependent on external oxy-
gen supplies, some are depen-
dent on electricity for ventilators
or to keep medication at a con-
stant cool temperature, and some
require a consistent ambient tem-
perature. There are many other
factors ranging from mobility
device dependency to communi-
cation requirements. With this in
r mind, it is important that people
with disabilities, their families,
caregivers, and advocates are in-
cluded and participate in all phas-
es of disaster preparedness.


Disaster preparedness is truly
a'team effort. Each of Florida's 67
counties has an Emergency Op-
eration Center which is staffed by
professionals in disaster prepared-
ness. Emergency management
professionals are encouraged to
reach out to the community and
include people with disabilities in
pre-event, during-event and post-
event planning. Also, individuals
with disabilities and disability-
related organizations are encour-
aged to contact their Emergency
Operations Center and offer to as-
sist in creating and testing the pre-
paredness plans which may be
affecting their lives. However, it is
advised that the public with dis-
abilities not wait for an invitation
to join the EOC but be proactive
and approach their emergency
management group and volun-
teer to assist in any way possible.
At an individual level, a fam-
ily plan can be built using the re-
sources found at www.floridadi-
saster.org. Select "Get a Family.
Plan" and follow the directions
from there. Completing the plan
requires about 10 to 15 minutes
and will help you develop a com-
prehensive plan for you and your
family.
If you have questions or need
further information, call me at the
Division of Emergency Manage-
ment at 850-413-9892.

j A Message from SheriffRonnie Lee;
DearFriends,

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 1 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.

Port LaBelle begins pilot Briefs


curbside recycle program


The county is beginning a
curbside recycling program with
a pilot program in Port LaBelle.
Funding is coming from residents'
tax bills. The bins are being pro-
vided through a grant. Eventually,
the program is expected to be ex-
panded throughout the rest of the
county.
Initially, two (2) green bins
with an instruction flyer (in Eng-
lish and Spanish) will-be dropped-
off to Port LaBelle residents in late
August.
The first pickup will be
Wednesday, Sept. 3, and every
Wednesday thereafter until fur-
ther notice. Participation will de-
termine the program's continua-
tion. WSI will be picking up the
bins.
One container will be for paper
products (newspaper, junk mail,
magazines, telephone books and
cardboard). Not accepted; Styro-


foam and envelopes with plastic
windows.
The other bin will be for oth-
er recyclables. Remove lids on
glass, plastic and cans (jelly jars,
milk jugs, food and soda cans).
If your plastic containers display
the "running arrow" signs, they
can be placed in the bins. Please
rinse the containers. Not accept-
ed: Bulk glass and plastic grocery
bags.
Contact the Special Districts/
Recycling office at 863-675-5252.

Recycling bins moved
The containers previously lo-
cated at the Sheriff' parking lot
have been relocated to the old
driver's license .parking lot on
Cowboy Way. Residents are re-
quested to continue to place their
recyclables in these containers as
usual.
