One of the busiest ladies in
town was recognized Monday
evening with the LaBelle Cham-

Year Award.
Teri Lazar can be found where
ever there is civic work to be
done, equally at home with dirt
on her hands helping enrich the
acting or even directing one of
the Firehouse Cultural Center's
popular plays. Not content to sit
on the sidelines, Teri is not just
a member of many organize

Caloosa Belle
Once again Hendry County
may have an opportunity to benefit
from Florida Power & Light plans
to expand. At the Sept. 22 meeting,
FPL Project Development Manager
Kathy Salvador explained the com-
pany's plans to seek an easement
option in Hendry County. The ease
ment would be part of a renewable
energy (solar photovoltaic) plant
planned for southwestern Glades
County. An abandoned railroad
right-of way owned by Hendry
County is the preferred corridor
for the plant's double circuit 230kV
transmission line. The corridor is
about 7.3 miles long, starting at
Goodno to the north and ending at
FPLs existing transmission lines to
the south.
The commissioners gave County
Attorney Mark Lapp the go-ahead
to work with FPL on an agreement
for use of the easement. Among the
benefits FPL promises to Hendry
County are: payment of fair market
value for the easement; continued
use of the easement by the county
for such things as trails, agriculture
and roads; 1,000 new construction
jobs for two years beginning as
soon as 2010; economic benefits
from an influx of those workers;
development of other commercial
or industrial facilities to enhance
economic opportunities; and at-
traction of other businesses.
Ms. Salvador said landowners
adjacent to the corridor have been
notified of FPL's intentions.

Courthouse Square
Once again the commission is enter-
taining the idea of purchasing one or both
sections of the Courthouse Square facility
from the Royal family. The county has been
renting the building at Lee and Broward for
The building behind it remains unoccu-
pied. Previously, the county and the Royal
family could not agree on a purchase price.

ings as well as just on the one county staff

From the audience, Emily Ankeney sug-
gested the county get a free comparative
market analysis from a local real estate
company rather than pay for another ap-
praisal at this time.

Public hearings
Owners Grace and Ashley George have
applied for a small scale comprehensive
plan amendment and a rezone for a 4.29-
acre facility on SR 29S north of B Road.
They were asking the board to change its
designation from General Commercial and
Residential/High Density Mobile Home to a
Planned Unit Development (PUD). Admin-
istrative Services Director Vincent Cautero
told the board that both an amendment and
rezone were necessary to allow expansion
of its use as a recycling/salvage yard.
With the only issue raised by neighbors
- that of noise has been alleviated by re-
placement of an old crusher, the requests
were approved 4-0. Commissioner Tris
Chapman was not present at the meeting. and another very success
ful and popular Christmas in the Park. The
event draws hordes of kids to enjoy all the
free activities set up by local organizations,
especially the huge piles of snow. The cham-
ber's Fourth of July event is a fundraiser for
the Christmas bash.
He also noted that the chamber has been
fortunate in its ability to provide scholarships
to local students. This year Hobbs Crockett
earned the college scholarship. This year 22
students took advantage of the chamber's
vocational scholarship, which helps pay for
books and supplies.
Unfortunately, with the passing of bene-
factor Tully Dunlap, the vocational schol-
arship is now in jeopardy. The chamber is
looking for a new sponsor for this important
Edison College Charlotte Campus Presi-
dent Dr. Patricia Land is also overseeing the
Hendry-Glades Campus here in LaBelle.
Dr. Land recounted the highlights of her
career, emphasizing that she is grateful for
her current assignment in LaBelle. Here,
she said, she is able to reconnect with the
community that got her career in education
started. Dr. Land came to Clewiston as a
first-year teacher. In those years she lived in
Port LaBelle.

In other business
Commission Chair Janet Taylor told the
audience that the hospital authority is seek
ing support for a voter referendum to in-
crease its millage rate.
Embarq's John McGowan explained
to the board that Embarq and CenturyTel
have merged and the new company is be-
ing called CenturyLink. He told the board
the company is planning a build-out of
fiber optic lines from Clewiston to Big Cy-
press Reservation and Immokalee. The ef
fort will provide redundancy and eliminate
problems like two lengthy disconnects to
Clewiston last year.
The next regular meeting of the County
Commission will be Tuesday, Oct. 13, at Pio-
neer Plantation Community Center.

She said she struggled at first. With a
traditional education background, in those

Dr. Land also recognized LaBelle's own
Dr. Randall Parrish, chairman of the EC
Board of Directors.
She told the audience she was head-
ing to Washington, D.C., the following day
to look for additional funding for EC and
closed by telling the audience that LaBelle
should be proud to say now that "we are a

Beautiful center arrangements, made by
Corrine Palmer, Cheryl Hicks and Carolyn

killed on

CR 835

A woman was killed Oct. 4 on CR 835
about two miles north of Dooley Road, af-
ter being struck by a 2005 Mack semi. The
incident occurred about 4:47 a.m.
According to the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, the semi tractor was towing an empty
flatbed trailer northbound on CR 835. The
driver, Miguel Cruz, 58 of Naples, was ap-
proaching what he believed to be a dead
animal lying on the inside portion of the
northbound lane.
At the last moment, he realized that it
was a person, lying shirtless and motion
less on the roadway and attempted to
steer away. However, the vehicle's rear
tires and trailer struck the victim.
Mr. Cruz stopped the vehicle north of
the area of collision.
The victim was pronounced dead by
Hendry County EMS at 4:55 a.m. The vic-
tim's name is being withheld pending no-
tification of next of kin.
FHP is continuing the investigation.

Mind you they have not even won a game
YET! As for the JV team, they have won two
games so far. Last night there was a great
game against Evangelical. I just hope soon
your paper will start acknowledging the
JV team. They are working just as hard or
maybe even harder than the Varsity team. I
am just a parent of a student on the JV team

I feel this is more important to discuss

Girl Scouts go homeless

Many citizens think the homelessness is-
sue has been exaggerated, and it is some-
thing that doesn't need to be worried about.
Girl Scout Troop 566 is here to say, other-
wise. It's time to take action.
You may see one or two homeless peo
ple on the streets, but the problem is much
more serious than that. There are many in
our community with no home. The home
less in our community live in a variety of
ways, ranging from a simple home-made
roof over their heads, to no covering at all.
Some survive on just a change of clothes
and a blanket. Most of the homeless live in a
park, the woods or in their cars.
Questions may be asked about what the
situations are like for the homeless. Imagine
only having the clothes on your back and
maybe a blanket to carry around; nothing
else, no food, no showers or air condition-
ing. These are just some of the things that
they have to go through and we should be

aware of the devastating challenges.
In this current economic crisis, more and
more people are losing their homes. If this
happened to you, wouldn't you want your
community to help?
Girl Scout Troop 566 wants to help the
homeless. On Saturday, October 10, Troop
566 will be at U Save collecting supplies for
the homeless. You can also stop by the park-
ing lot near Veteran's Park, where the scouts
will be camping under homeless conditions
and donate needed items for the homeless.
Supplies will be distributed through local
agencies that serve our area's homeless.
Items of concern are canned foods, blan-
kets and hygiene products like shampoo,
razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes and soap.
Any items that you think could be of use to
someone without a home.
Thank you for supporting our service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28, 2009 -Checks
for up to $3,000 soon will be available to
students who have applied for Veterans Af
fairs educational benefits and who have not
yet received their government payment. The
checks will be distributed to eligible stu
dents at VA regional benefits offices across
the country starting Oct. 2, VA Secretary Eric
K. Shinseki announced Sept. 25. "Students
should be focusing on their studies, not wor
trying about financial difficulties," Shinseki
said. "Education creates life-expanding op
portunities for our veterans."
Starting Oct. 2, students can go to one of
VA's 57 regional benefit offices with photo
identification, a course schedule and an
eligibility certificate to request advance pay
ment of their housing and book allowance.
Because some students don't live near one
of those offices, officials said, VA expects to
send representatives to schools with large
veteran-student bodies to work with veter-
an service groups in helping students with
transportation needs.
A list of VA regional offices is available
"I'm asking our people to get out their
road maps and determine how we can

reach the largest number of college students
who can't reach us," said Patrick Dunne,
VAs undersecretary for benefits. "Not every
one has a car. Not everyone can walk to a
VA benefits office."
Although VA officials said they don't
know how many students will request
emergency funds, about 25,000 claims are
pending that may result in payments to stu-
dents. The funds VA will give to students
now are advance payments of the earned
benefits for housing and books, and will be
deducted from future education payments.
VA officials said students should know that
after this special payment, they can expect
to receive education payments on the nor-
mal schedule: the beginning of the month
following the period for which they are re-
"This is an extraordinary action we're
taking," Shinseki said. "But it's necessary,
because we recognize the hardships some
of our veterans face." More than 27,500
students already have received benefits for
housing or books under the new Post 9/11
GI Bill, or their schools have received their
tuition payments, officials said. (From a De-
partment of Veterans Affairs news release.)

Program for elders with depression

Lehigh Regional Medical Center Inspira-
tions is an outpatient counseling program
designed for older adults. It has recently ex-
panded services to LaBelle area residents.
It is an intensive outpatient program
geared toward older patients showing symp-
toms of sadness/depression, excessive wor-
ry or anxiety, inability to cope with stress,
loneliness, crying spells, low self esteem,
suspiciousness, mood swings, loss of energy
or interests, etc. The process begins with a
psychiatric assessment/screening. Once it is
determined that the program is appropriate
for the individual, the client will be assigned
to group sessions.

There are three 45-minute sessions per
day, up to five days per week. The therapist
will decide the level of help needed. Sessions
are divided into three parts: processing/shar
ing under a licensed master level therapist;
a focus group discussing a specific topic; a
fun group with exercise, trivia, games and
Clients have the benefit of small groups,
a psychiatric assessment, nutritionally bal-
anced noon meals and individualized fam-
ily/caregiver meetings. Transportation is
provided as needed. The program accepts
Medicare and Medicaid. Call 239-368-2713

Witch's Brew

By Pudge Lehman
My friend Flo McGarrah is a good fish-
erperson. Her hint pertains to catfish. If
yourself while
skinning a cat-
fish just rub
the boo-boo
with the skin. If
you're going to
bake potatoes
go ahead and
bake a lot.
You can use
them all week.
Make it extra

easy by putting them in a muffin pan to
bake. You take them all in and out together.
To make instant potatoes taste more like
home made add a tablespoon of mayon-
naise to them right before serving.
Some people swear by sour cream, also.
While browsing through a catalog I spot-
ted a few tee shirts I must have or just die!
Number one: When I want your opinion, I'll
remove the duct tape....or, I think I might be
losing my mind. I don't know if I found a
rope or lost my horse, or, Inside every older
person is a younger person wondering what
the heck happened.

Dr. Nickolay Revtov to speak at Caloosa Baptist

Once an avowed atheist, communist and
Marxist, Dr. Nickolay Revtov has become a
changed man. Born and raised in the former
USSR, Revtov grew up passionate about
communism and its intent to overcome
the globe. He was the lead man of a team
of some of the world's medalists, endeavor-
ing to develop superior weapons and artil-
lery. Once committed to helping China with
its military defense programs, Dr. Revtov is
now a changed man. Once he embraced
communism, he now affirms Christianity.
Nickolay lives in Kiev, Ukraine, and
serves with Evangelism Explosion as Vice
President for Eurasia, a territory that spans
twelve zones.
Dr. Les Morgan, pastor of Caloosa Baptist
in LaBelle, and personal friend of Revtov, is
very excited about him coming to speak at
the church. "Nickolay has a testimony that
is nothing short of an act of God. When you
consider the environment in which he grew
up, his life's experiences and now his efforts
toward world evangelism in amazing. You
must hear this man speak," said Morgan.

Let designer turn nightmare

renovation into joy

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Designing is the art of combining abstract
concepts with concrete materials. In apply-
ing design techniques to home and com-
mercial space, the designer aims to meld
those two elements, along with the owner's
personal taste and budget, into unique and
beautiful living or working environments.
LaBelle resident Diann Gibson is one
of those talented people who can look at
a room and just "see" its possibilities. Her
company, EWI Design Services, is based on
putting those talents to work for her clients.
She and her husband recently moved to La-
Belle from California to be closer to family.
For some 30 years, Diann has wielded her
I ,, I, 1 ,I d,, I I I I 1. .II 1
Diann interweaves her professional skills
with her art to create dream projects, both
residential and commercial, devoted to the
owners' taste.
Diann has studied Arts, Graphic Arts and
Textile Design at the University of Hawaii,
the Art of Ikebana at the Ikebana Socity of
Boston and sculpting under Peter Abate,
world renowned sculptor at the Decordava
Museum in Boston.
She has an impressive list of successful
projects. She even received an acknowledg-
ment from former First Lady Nancy Reagan
on a silk flower arrangement she displayed
at The White House. The list includes proj-

ects like interior and furniture design of Con-
gressman Tip O'Neal's private Boston office,
along with historic buildings, multi-million
dollar corporate offices, condominium
models, country clubs, bed and breakfasts
and luxury homes.
Diann throws herself into whatever proj-
ect she is doing, be it corporate offices for an
international company or your home sweet
home. Give her a color pallet and a feel for
your personal taste and she can guide you
hI k -. 1i r u irIs .....i..... d- ..

she is expert at taking what can be a very
painful experience and making it enjoyable.
That's because she takes the stress out of it
for the client.
Let her deal with the architects and the
contractors. She will not only absorb the
pressure; she will make sure you get exactly
what you want no unpleasant surprises.
For Diann, her biggest accomplishment is
helping people make their homes personal
getaways. That, she said, can be a daunting
task one that requires professional guid-
ance. You may not think you can afford an
interior designer, but in Diann's words, "You
can't afford not to have one."
At the very least, Diann said the average
person should have a consultant when at-
tempting to build or renovate their business,
home or just a room. Listen to what the con-
sultant has to say, she counsels, tape it, write
it down don't try to commit it to memory.
You will be glad you did.
