The last order of business for
the city commissioners at their Oct.
8 meeting could be one of their
most important for some time. The
board voted to look for a lobbyist
to represent LaBelle in Tallahassee,
The lobbyist would pave the way
for the city any time it seeks fund-
ing for specific projects like the new
water plant. Commissioner Dave
Lyons agreed that this point person
would set up appointments, and
generally get LaBelle projects "in
the door" for the board.
The position is only for one year,
but Mayor Paul Puletti noted that
it could continue for two or three
years. The board built a $45,000
salary into the new budget
The commissioners voted to
seek Requests For Proposals to fill
a lobbyist position. Mayor Puletti
said he believes hiring a lobbyist
could be "money well spent."
Commissioner Lyons moved to
approve a lobbyist position. It was
seconded by Commissioner Bob
Miller and passed, 5-0.
Joseph A. Beavers, Jr. of U-Save
appeared before the city commis-
sioners Oct. 8 to help straighten
out what he called "miscommu
nications" with regard to the city's
new Veterans Park. He said these
miscommunications and unclear
border lines got U-Save and the
City of LaBelle off to a bad start

when the city requested permission to use
a small strip of land on the north side of
the park owned by U-Save. The issue had
escalated to a cease and desist order from
U-Save and a threat of seeking eminent
domain proceedings by the city. Mr. Bea-
vers said the strip would cost the city about
$99,000 a sum he said U-Save would rather
the city not have to spend. He said U-Save
has always tried to be a good neighbor and
offered the city a perpetual easement for the

Passive recreation park
Margaret England appeared seeking in-
formation on the 176-acre park on the north
side of the river. She wanted to know how
the city's plans for security have progressed;
is it possible for volunteers to begin work on
the property like exotic plant removal; and
does the city consider the Department of
Forestry a partner in park development.
Mayor Puletti told her that the city has
agreed to maintain the gate as part of its
security plans and will keep it where it is.
Hendry County and Glades County sheriff's
offices are to collaborate on patrolling. The
park will close at 6 p.m.
He also said that only South Florida Wa-
ter Management may do any work on the
property at this time, others may work on
the easement only He added that the city
plans to use Forestry and SFWMD resources
to develop the park.
Engineer LarryBennett received the city's
approval to reroute an easement behind the
old Fussell building that used to service the
Vermont Owens Stadium. The rerouting will
accommodate Pollywog Creek Commons,
an affordable family housing complex.
Representative said they expect to break
ground on the project about Dec. 1 with a
10-12 month construction period. The first
two phases will provide two buildings with
a total of 62 apartments. A third phase may
be dedicated to housing for senior citizens.
The city will be responsible for fixing
Jaycee-Lions Drive. The mayor said he will
seek assistance from the school board,
which uses that road for school traffic.
Applied Technology and Management
Grant Misterly told the board that stimulus
money is being used to upgrade the existing
water plant. Currently they are modifying
the drawings now. The city will be accept-
ing bids on a nanofilter system. A contract
for the job should be ready for a vote at the
November meeting, with construction be
ginning at the end of the year.
They are continuing to seek federal fund-
ing for the new water treatment plant. The
pilot site has been running for one month.
Water quality data comes in to the manufac-
turer so the specific design for the final plant
can be developed.
Mr. Misterly showed a sample of the
raw water from the pilot site and said it is
slightly yellow with a sulphur smell, but is

Woman killed on CR 835
A Clewiston woman was killed Oct. 4

ey Road, after being struck by a 2005 Mack
semi. The incident occurred about 4:47
According to the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, the semi tractor was towing and
empty flatbed trailer northbound on CR
835. The driver, Miguel Cruz, 58 of Naples,

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.

Important questions for your life
I've tried and tried; I'm tired
I might as well go public with this as it
has been publicized everywhere in Hendry
County. I'm the guardian of a young man
that, for some reason everyone treats him
as not human. When the allegations were
just a complaint, and no charges had been
filed, the Hendry County school stated they
did not want him at the school. He is a very
smart young man. He is in the 11 th grade
and makes good grades. But I guess I'm just
crazy enough to believe that he would not
be victimized or stereotyped as the average
everyday convicted felon (aka young black
man). He's not an angel, he makes mis
takes, he's not perfect, but he is human and
he's somebody's child.
I've been led to believe that everyone is
responsible to raise their own children. But I
choose to believe that we all could be help-
ful to each other and not just who we want
to help. I've seen young men and young la
dies with available mothers and fathers get
more help than those who have no fathers
and perhaps never will. If someone says
why speak out now, I would answer by say
ing, "I've been trying for years to not only
get help for him, but other young males who
may encounter some of the same circum-
stances that he is going through. This young
man's life has practically been ruined.
I'm not throwing a "pity party" or any-
thing like that, I'm just out of ways of trying
to get the "Help our young men" message
out. So, I'm just putting it out there and to
possibly ask what if it were your child, friend
or relative and I'm sure you or someone
you know have encountered similar occur-
rences. Some people choose to be secretive,
ignore the situation or consider it status quo.
I do not want to be of the mind set as just
listed above. A winner never quits, right?
I would just like to say, look out for your
"young men" as well as "young ladies." They
too need help in growing up. And by chance
if you don't see eye-to-eye with or dislike
the parent/guardian don't take it out on the
child. If possible, find away if you can to try
and help the child. This is not about us, it's
about doing what's right! I'm not sure what
the outcome will be in this case, but I've
always taught this young man to pray, hold
your head up, respect all adults (even if they
don't like you). I've always taught him to do
what's right. Again, I'm just crazy enough to
believe that right will always prevail!
Names are not important, People are!
By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
A friend once asked Isidor I. Rabi, a Nobel
prize winner in science,
how he became a sci
dentist. Rabi replied that
every day after school
his mother would talk
to him about his school
She wasn't so much
interested in what he
had learned that day,
but she always in
quired, "Did you ask a Les Morgan
good question today?"
"Asking good questions," Rabi said,
"made me become a scientist."
Considering the recent list recipients of
the Nobel Peace Prize you may not have
many aspirations to be associated with that
However, it is a worthwhile idea to inter
face with questions that stimulate thinking,
and conversation with others.
I have been thinking through several
questions lately. The dialogue has been
worthwhile and lead to interaction which
would not have occurred had the questions
not been talked through.
Below is a list of questions that you
would benefit from discussing with a friend,
your spouse, or some people you converse
Working through these questions would
be a good conversation starter at the dinner
table with your family. Enjoy the conversa-
tion and get ready to learn!
1. If you didn't have to worry about mak-
ing a living what would you most like to do
for the rest of your life?
2. What is your earliest memory?
3. If you could live in any other time, past,
present, future, what would it be and why?
4. What motivates you most to go to
work each day: money or personal satisfac-
tion? If money were not an issue, would you
still keep your job?
5. If you knew that tomorrow would be
the last full day of your life, how would you
spend the day?
6. What is your most important goal in
life right now? Will your life change in some
way if that goal is reached? If so, how?
7. If the people who know you best were
asked, would they say you tend to be mostly
predictable or unpredictable? Why? Which
of these traits do you most value in a friend?
Do you tend to follow a set routine or do you
often do the same things differently?
8. What social situations tend to make
you most flustered and nervous? Why?
9. For $10,000 would you be willing to
stand up spontaneously and sing The Star
Spangled Banner at the top of your lungs in
the middle of a church service?
10. What are three things you would like
to accomplish in the next year?
11. If you were to move to a poor, primi-
tive country, what three things would you
most miss from your current life?
12. What is the biggest lie you've ever
told? Why? What were the consequences,
13. What three things do you believe
without any doubts?
14. What is one of the books (other than
the Bible) that has had the greatest influence
on your life? Why?
15. If God would grant you any one re-
quest, what would it be?
16. "Activity that does not result in prog-
ress toward a goal is a waste of time." Do
you agree? Is it ever OK to waste time?
17. What would you say are your 5 great-
est strengths? Weaknesses?
18. Under what circumstances do you
feel most lonely? Least lonely? Why?
19. What do you look forward to most
about growing old? Least?
20. What traits do you think are most im-
portant to instill in your children? Why?
21. If you could relive any part of your life,
what would it be and why?
22. Have either of your parents either told
you they were sorry or asked your forgive-
ness for something? How did it make you
23. What is the most difficult choice
you've had to make in your life up to this
point? Why? What factors helped you make
24. Do you believe God has only one per
fect mate for everyone?
25. A football coach once said, "We learn
almost nothing in victory, but we learn much
in defeat." Do you agree or disagree. In your
life, have you learned most from failures or
26. What would you most like people
to remember you for after you die? What
would you like written on your tombstone?
27. What is the most dangerous thing
you'd like to try doing? What keeps you
from doing it?
28. What are the biggest questions you
have about your relationship with God?
29. What are the five things you are most
thankful for in your life right now?
30. Would you say that the focus of your
life right now is more on the development of
relationships or on the accomplishment of
goals and objectives?
What would you like to change about
this focus, if anything?
31. During WWII German theologian
Dietrich Bonhoeffer participated in a con-
spiracy to assassinate Hitler.
Although the conspiracy failed and he
was executed for making the effort, do you
think Bonhoeffer was right in his attempts
to kill Hitler?
If you had been Bonhoeffer, would you
have participated in this murder conspiracy?
Why or why not?
32. What was the greatest peer pressure
you felt as a teen? What is the greatest peer
pressure you feel as an adult? How are you
33. As a child, when you got caught doing
something wrong, which of the following
were you most likely to do? Blame someone
else? Deny that you did it? Run and hide?
Take full responsibility and accept the con
sequences? What are you most likely to do
now as an adult?
34. Do you think people would be sur-
prised about your thought life? How often
would you be embarrassed if others knew
exactly what was on your mind?
Do you think your thought life is better or
worse than most of the people in your circle
of friends? Why?

New beginnings for an old church
Full Gospel Tabernacle on Thigpen Road was founded by Brother and Sister
Clark in the 1970s. Brother Clark was the pastor until he went to meet the Lord.
Sister Clark continued to pastor at the little church until Pastor Jerome Sears
came in 1984. Pastor Sears was there for about one year. New pastors came
and went for several years with Sister Clark assisting. Around 2002, Pastor Myer
arrived at Full Gospel Tabernacle and remained for about six years. When he
left, the church closed its doors for about three or four months when Pastor M.
A. Mott decided it was time to get this church going again. In November 2008,
Full Gospel Tabernacle was re-opened for full church services again. Everyone
is invited to attend church services on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and
on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. The church is located at 1058 Thigpen Rd., between

Injuries hurt Cowboys
by Patty Brant
Cowboy Head Football Coach Hal Ben-

what it takes. Last Friday's disappointing
loss to Dunbar was just another bump in the
"We played well at times," he said, "but
we let them out of the gate early and injuries
He felt the Cowboys managed to confuse
the Dunbar team and kept their star tailback
out of the end zone quite a bit.
However, the loss of senior RB/LB Dale

One high point of the game was QB Jor-

with a 62-yard touchdown, 30-yard run and a
total of 85 yards rushing for the game. How-
ever, he lost some on sacks when the team
couldn't block Dunbar. Coach Bennett said,
"I'm very impressed with this young man.
He did a good job managing the game.
Friday, the Cowboys head for Lemon Bay
for a completely different type of match up.
"Lemon Bay plays a smash mouth, right
at ya kind of football. They have big backs
and a good defensive line, but they are beat
able and the kids know it. If we can put it all
together we can get our first victory," coach
said. He added that the two teams usually
play each other tough. Last year the Cow-

the Oct. 8 game "wasn't one of their best"

down by Patrick Graham, followed by Tyler
O'Ferrell's hit to Devante Ray for the two-
point conversion. They would be the only
bright spots in the game for the Cowboys,
and it was too little too late. Still, it showed
that a Cowboy never gives up.

Volunteer for Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc. is
seeking volunteers to help complete short
20-minute phone interviews of applicants,
who want to become volunteers for the or-
ganization. Phone interviews can be made
any time and place that is convenient for the
interviewer. Some training is required and
will be provided by the organization.
It is preferred that the potential volunteer
interviewer have a background in either hu
man resources, social work, education, child
and family services or law enforcement. For
more information, please contact Amanda
Jacob, director of volunteer management, at
239-561-1800 ext. 406 or at amandaj@gsgcf.
For those that do not know "Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedi-
cated to changing the world one child and one community at a time." Kiwanis
is the place for you if you believe children are the future; you take pride in your
community; you want to reach out to those in need and you enjoy meeting new
people. Three ladies recently felt that they believed in what Kiwanis stands for
so they have joined the local club. Pictured from left: Audrey Kinchen with Flor-
ida Community Bank Immokalee; Brenda Barnes with Hendry County Health
Dept. and Shirley Losch with Early Learning Coalition of SW FL, Director. Any-
one interested in learning more about Kiwanis can attend their meeting every
Tuesday at 7 a.m. at Flora & Ella's Restaurant. For additional information please
contact Dawn at the Kiwanis Thrift Store 863-675-4043.

Hendry County citizens are invited to
participate in the citizens' academy for a
behind-the-scenes look at what the men
and women of the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office do. Participants will spend about two

ment as well as the duties and responsibili
ties of the various departments. They will
also spend one day at a firing range learning
how to handle firearms. Members will tour
the various sheriff's buildings and ride in an
agency vehicle with a road patrol deputy
and most of all, develop confidence in their
ability to make themselves and their prop-
erty less attractive to criminals.
Citizens Academy graduates may be

programs that will be offered by HCSO.
You must be over 18 years of age, with a
