traffic fatality


One Hendry County Sheriff's
Office spokesperson called it the
worst crash she'd ever seen. It oc-
curred Jan. 7 at about 5:30 a.m. on
US 27 (SR 25) about 1.6 miles west
of CR 720.
HCSO Lt. Susan Harrelle said it
occurred after a semi driver pulled
his rig over to tend to a faulty tire
and the driver of a second semi
pulled over to assist.


According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, a 2001 International
tractor trailer, driven by 45-year-old
Eduardo Fraga of Miami, was un-
lawfully stopped in the roadway oc-
cupying the northbound lane of US
27. A 1997 Freightliner tractor trail-
er, driven by 38-year-old Isai Perez
of Miami, was unlawfully stopped

Eagle rescued by wildlife officers
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The bald eagle is one of the
proud symbols of this country It
has also been one of this area's
most endangered residents. In
2008, the bald eagle was re-
moved from the state's imper-
iled species list. According to
the Florida Wildlife Commission
(WFC), there were only 88 ac-
tive bald eagle nests in Florida in
1973. By 2007, that number rose
to over 1,100 active nests.
The bald eagle continues to
be protected by the federal Bald
and Golden Eagle Protection Act,
the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and
a state bald eagle rule.
The bird survives in some of
Southwest Florida's most inac-
cessible places. Last month, two
young wildlife officers rescued
one of these impressive birds in Su mtte poto

the Picayune Strand in Collier County. With-
out their intervention, the proud bird would
surely have seen its demise.
Anthony "Tony" Curella, who has been
a wildlife officer for two years, spends most
of his time in the Okaloacootchee Slough in
Hendry County, but on Dec. 9 he and Mike
Murmahan, a seven-year wildlife veteran
and OK Slough park ranger, were out on a
four-wheeler in the Picayune Strand. They
were cruising for timber, taking inventory
to document trees for harvest in a periodic
tree survey.
Both are wildland firefighters, certified to
fight all wildland fires throughout the US.
It was about 2:30 p.m. when the pair
spotted a mature male bald eagle jump up
on a fence post. It could only fly 3-4 feet.
It was obvious that something was wrong
with this impressive bird, so Mike, who
Tony said has had considerable experience
with large birds, decided to chase it down.
It took about a half mile of running to
catch up to the disabled bird before they
could snare him in one of their blaze orange
vests. He was missing his flight feathers.
Tony believes the bird lost them in a fight or
possibly while scrambling with a possible
meal in the palmettos.
The men were way back in the burned-
out area of Picayune Strand, miles from as-
sistance.
They hopped on their four-wheeler and
drove over an hour through the woods to
their truck, then another hour or so to the
Conservancy of South Florida in Naples,
where the bird could be cared for. It was be-
tween 5-6 p.m. when they could finally turn
the bird over to staff at the Conservancy.
Tony said that the injured bird was sur-
prisingly cooperative on the drive out of its
home territory with two humans.
On the four-wheeler trip, Tony drove
while Mike sat behind him, holding the
bird, still wrapped in the vest so he could
be somewhat managed, At any time the
eagle could have gored Tony's back and it
was obviously unnerved every time they hit
a bump, but they made the trek with no real
problems.
In the truck the bird seemed to calm
down he apparently liked the air condi-
tioning, but still clamped its 1.5 inch talons
into Mike's leg. Fortunately, Mike was wear-
ing a jacket, two pair of pants and snake

directly in front of the International.
A 1998 Peterbuilt tractor trailer, driven by
Colin Griffiths, 44, of Ocala, was traveling
northbound on US 27 in the outside lane. He
was unable to stop or take evasive action.
The front of Mr. Griffiths' Peterbuilt collided
with the left rear of the International, then
into the rear of the Peterbuilt.
Mr. Griffiths was pronounced dead on the
scene and Mr. Fraga was transported to Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center with serious
injuries. Mr. Perez was uninjured.
Mr. Fraga and Mr. Perez were charged
with unlawfully stopping in the roadway.

trying to collect it.


chaps on his legs. Still, the talons left two
puncture wounds in his leg before the men
could manage to disengage them.
Employees at the Conservancy of South-
west Florida agreed that this impressive bird
would probably have died from dehydration
or starvation if the two wildlife officers had
not intervened. Conservancy employees are
caring for the eagle and expect to be able to
return it to the wild soon.
Tony also helped rescue a red tail hawk
in November, also in the 1,800-acre burned
out area of the Picayune. Burned out areas
of the woods present good feeding grounds
for predator birds, Tony said. The hawk had
apparently ingested poison or a mouse or
rat that had eaten poison. When they found
the bird he was weak and crouched down
with his beak open. He was also taken to
the Conservancy for care.
A 2005 graduate of LaBelle High School,
Tony said he loves the woods and grew up
on a lease his parents had off Keri the area
he normally works now still riding four
wheelers, airboats and buggies.
Tony also said he and wildlife officer
Brandon Jones found and wrestled down

A plan that could create another city in
Hendry County found favor with the board.
Also located in the southwestern section of
the county, the Rodina Community Overlay
was a new concept for Hendry County on

"Give Obama a break?"
People are scared they are not racist.
They don't care about the color of a brother
or sister's skin. They care about our country
turning away from what has made and kept
us a great and blessed nation. They have
watched President Obama, Pelosi, Reid,
Dodd, Geitner and on and on pass laws


that are turning our nation away from God.
These people led by the President who be-
lieve abortion is ok at any point during the
pregnancy when Psalm 139 clearly states
that God has a plan for us all even before we
are born. They ok same sex marriage when
they have the power to stop it and choose
not to even though God calls it an abomina-
tion through the Apostle Paul in the book of
Romans. They say it is ok to take from the
working people and give to those who can
work but will not even try simply because
they weigh votes over responsibilities. Read
the Bible and take it for what it is, the Truth,
and maybe you will understand. Believe me
it is real differences, it is not racist.


Letter to the Editor


Happy New Year recipe
I promised my bride of 60 years that I
would make a concerted effort to accentu-
ate the positive and try to minimize the neg-
ative in this, the second decade of the 21st
Century.
For a starter I have made an all encom-
passing resolution that reads like this:
I will take all twelve whole months and
clean them thoroughly of all bitterness,
hate, and jealousy by making them as fresh
and clean as possible.
I will cut each month into twenty-eight,
thirty, or thirty-one different parts without
doing the parts all in one batch, but one at
a time.
The preparation must be done one day at
a time by analyzing the details and events as
they evolve, and then properly mixing in the
proper ingredients of choice and relativity.
Properly assessed as to priority and need,
one part of faith, one part of patience, one
part of courage, and one part of work.
Add to each day, one part of hope, faith-
fulness, generosity, sacrifice, and kindness
by blending in one part prayer, one part
meditation, and one good deed.
Season the whole batch with a dash of
good spirits, a sprinkle of fun, a pinch of
play, and a cupfull of good humor.
Pour all of this into a vessel of love, while
cooking thoroughly over radiant joy, gar-
nished with a smile.
Serve it up with openess, unselishness,

cheerfulness, and complete confidence,
and, now we will see how it works in the
coming months.
For those of you who read me regularly,
you are entitled to know what miracle has
wrought this planned transformation, and
it is simply being with family over the holi-
days, particularly the grandkids. I remember
on Christmas eve we decided on a theme of
"What is LOVE?," and I especially remember
at least one greatgrandaughter, age 4 say-
ing love to her was, "When her puppy licks
her face even after you've left him alone all
day."
An 8 year old granddaughter said that love
to her was"When my grandmother got ar-
thritis,
and she couldn't bend over and trim her
toenails anymore, her grandfather does it for
her all the time, even though his hands got
arthritis now too." That's love to her. Not to
be outdone one of our 6 year old grandsons
piped up with "Love is when Mom sees Dad
on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross",
and my favorite was from our 10 year old
who said "Love is like a little old woman and
a little old man who are still friends even af-
ter the get to know each other so well."
It is on that uplifting note that I ask
your indulgence and assistance as, to the
best of my ability, I try to "practice" what I
"preach."

Free H1N1-flu vaccines



are still available


By Pat Dobbins
Happy New Year and welcome to 2010!
Now that the New Year has begun and as
we are heading back to
work and school settings,
it is more important than
ever to think about get-
ting the H 1N 1-Flu vaccine.
Jan. 10-16, 2010 is Nation-
al Influenza Vaccination
Week (NIVW), and now
is the perfect time to un-
derstand the importance Patricia
of being vaccinated. Dobbins
You may hear on the Dobbins
news that cases of HINI Flu have been de-
creasing, but please think about getting an
H1N1 vaccination for you and your family
members. "Please do not be complacent
about protecting yourself and your families
from H1N1 infection" said Pat Dobbins, Ad-
ministrator for the Hendry and Glades Coun-
ty Health Departments. "This virus continues
to cause serious illness and deaths."
Flu experts warn that we should prepare
for a possible third wave of HIN1-Flu. There
is ample supply of the vaccine and the Cen-
ter for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
has announced that the vaccine is now open
to everyone (all ages). Most people 6 months
and older can get the vaccine. Be sure to let
your health care provider know if you or
your child has an allergy to eggs, any other
allergies, or any medical conditions.
Please remember that the seasonal flu
vaccine will not protect you from the H1N
Flu. The 2009 HIN 1-Flu Vaccine is made the
same way as seasonal flu vaccines. Millions
of seasonal flu vaccines have been given
safely and millions of people have all ready
safely received the HIN1-Flu Vaccine. For
those who may be hesitant to receive the
vaccine by injection, healthy people from
ages 2 years to 49 years have the option to
choose a nasal spray form of the vaccine.
Also keep in mind that children aged 9 years
and under will need a second dose 30 days
after receiving the first dose to ensure the
vaccine will be more effective for them.
The following schedule has been set up
in the communities of Hendry and Glades so
that you may bring in your family members

Edison College Coppers for the Hungry collection a success


Students at the Hendry/Glades Center
of Edison State College collected "Coppers
for the Hungry" to benefit the Harry Chapin
Foodbank. Students, faculty and staff col-
lected pennies to go toward the hungry in
LaBelle, Moore Haven and Clewiston.
Langford Ford willingly agreed to partner
with the College to by matching penny for
penny the total collected.
"We are very pleased that our students
are engaged in community service," said
Dr. Bob Jones, Dean of the Hendry/Glades
Center. "We thank the Langford Ford family
for the generous match that will allow us to
touch even more lives in our community."
The total contribution to Harry Chapin
is $304. The food bank has a buying pow-
ering power of $6 for each $1 contributed.
That means the equivalent of $1,800 worth
of food now available to the hungry of our
communities.
"Along with Edison State College and the
Harry Chapin Foodbank it is a very special
honor for Langford Ford to join in this effort
to help those in need in our community,"
said Pat Langford. "For in the book of Prov-
erbs Chapter 14 verse 21 it says 'He who
despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he
who is kind to the needy'." It is our hope
that our business as well as others here in
LaBelle can continue to partner with Edison
State College in these types of efforts for
many years to come. "
Edison State College is Southwest Flori-
da's largest, most established, most acces-


sible and most affordable school of higher in 5 counties with campuses in Lee, Collier Glades. Many classes are available online at
education serving more than 18,000 students and Charlotte, and a center serving Hendry/ www.edison.edu.

2009 breeding season good year for wading birds


The 2009 breeding season was excep-
tionally good for wading birds in South Flor-
ida, with a most noteworthy improvement
for the federally endangered wood stork,
according to a South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) report.
"Wading birds are among the most useful
indicators of overall environmental health,"
said SFWMD Executive Director Carol Ann
Wehle. "Collection and study of wading bird
data and trends is one of our best tools to
track improvements in South Florida's envi-
ronment, wildlife and resources."
The estimated total number of wading
bird nests in South Florida was 77,505 in
2009, which eclipses the number of nests
during the previous banner year (2002) by
some 8,000 nests and represents the largest
nesting effort since the 1940s.
Increases in nesting efforts occurred for
most wading bird species and especially for
the endangered wood stork, a species whose
nesting numbers have raised concern in re-
cent years. Approximately 6,452 wood stork
nests were recorded in 2009, representing a
203-percent increase over the average of the
past decade and a 1,776-percent increase
over last year.
In 2009, the majority of wading birds in
South Florida continued to use the Water
Conservation Areas for breeding. Scientists
noted that a large proportion of birds nested
in areas used by the historic colonies in Ev-
erglades National Park 15,432 nests -
representing the largest nesting effort in the

Obituaries

Lawrence Paul Crebs, 86
LABELLE Lawrence Paul Crebs, age 86, of
LaBelle, passed away Jan. 8, 2010, in LaBelle.
He was born May 20, 1923, in Harrison, Ark.,
son of the late Joseph and the late Myrtle Crebs.
He served during World War II in the Army Air
Corps. Lawrence was a belly gunner on a B-17
and flew on over fifty missions. He worked for
many years as an accountant, employed by Hir-
am Walker & Sons Inc., Peoria, Ill.
Survivors include one son, Donald Ray Crebs
and wife Marie of LaBelle; daughter, Mary Ca-
bage of Cross City; and grandchildren, Carissa
Crebs, Travis Cabage and John Cabage. He was
preceded in death by his wife of fifty-two years,
Anna Crebs.

park since 1941.
Scientists also found that wading birds
appear to be increasing nesting activity on
the recently restored section of the Kissim-
mee River floodplain. This year, 1,574 nests
were recorded, which is considerably great-
er than the 6 nests recorded last year and
greatly surpasses the previous high count in
2006 of 637 nests.
The exceptional wading bird nesting
events as observed in 2009 may be a result
of extensive drought conditions in recent
years. The theory, known as the "Predator
Release Hypothesis," suggests that drought
reduces predatory fish densities, allowing
crayfish and small fish populations -which
serve as food for wading birds to increase
in size and abundance.
A key goal of the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan (CERP) is to restore
hydrologic conditions, which will contribute
to re-establishing aquatic prey densities and
concentrations across the Everglades land-
scape. This, in turn, will more permanently
support the return of large, successful wad-
ing bird nesting colonies to the Southern
Everglades.
The latest wading bird report contained
several additional highlights, including:
This was the largest nesting effort record-
ed in South Florida since the 1940s.
The season represents an 83-percent in-
crease over the average of the last nine sea-
sons.
Wading birds produced the fourth-highest

Tips from the Drug


Free Coalition


Conversations get derailed sometimes. It
happens to everyone. Just remember that
most parents feel like they're at a loss for
how to talk with teenagers.
Here are a few tips for putting things back
on track:
Remember how moody you were as a
teen? And how frustrating it was trying to ex-
press yourself? Your teen is in that boat now.
So when he has an outburst, cut him some
slack. It's normal.
Don't worry about getting it all right the
first time.
In fact, if you're struggling with a really
hard subject, tackle it in a series of small
talks instead of one big one. You may have
better luck making your point.
Don't be afraid to admit that you made a
mistake and apologize for it. Reminding our
teenagers that we're human doesn't have to
damage our authority.
Learn how to recognize typical teen be-
havior. It can help you keep your emotions
under control and save you from falling into
the same traps over and over.
Typical teen behavior can trigger a lot of
emotion in parents. By learning to spot that
behavior and manage our own impulses,
we avoid giving our teens control. Plus, we
communicate better because our messages
aren't clouded by emotion.
What happens when your teen mouths
off? Does your heart race? Do your cheeks
burn? Does your neck get stiff? These are the
warnings signs of a gut reaction.
As soon as you feel the cues, take a deep
breath (or three) or take a break to cool
down. Before you do, though, set a time
when you'll both come back and continue
talking.
Parents- when it comes to your Teens
and alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or any other


harmful substance or behavior-- be clear, be
firm, be consistent- BE THE WALL1!

I&L.iA e- F S,. A


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Welcome to Jonesez, pictured from left: Kris Krause, Luis Acosta, Nekia Jones, Vickie and Andre Jones and their son "A.J."


Jonesez: Ribs and chicken


For many in the restaurant business, the
family is the beginning. For Andre and Vickie
Jones, the restaurant business is a continua-
tion of family.
The couple opened their restaurant Jon-
sez last August. It's their first, located at 199
Broward Ave. (the former location of Baha-
ma Bob's). At Jonsez, the accent is on family
style cooking. A natural cook, Vickie uses all
her own recipes. She doesn't measure ingre-
dients she dumps and dashes her way to
Jonesez popular side dishes. All ingredients
are hand cut and mixed, just the way she
does at home for her family. Vickie learned
her kitchen skills from her grandmother and
mother, growing up in a home where there
was always plenty of food and everyone
who stopped by was welcome.
She said her specialty is her green beans,
but the same love and feel for good food
goes into all her dishes. Her sister-in-law,
Nekia Jones, takes care of the desserts and
breads.
Vickie said the idea for a barbecue place
began with home cookouts lots of them.
The Jones family came to LaBelle from
Pompano Beach in 2005 where their first
commercial cooking venture was a conces-
sion at Pop Warner football games.
In 1996 Andre opened Andre's Moving
and Delivery Service, serving both residen-
tial and commercial customers. The busi-
ness now operates on both the East and
West Coast.
Vickie previously owned Style City Salon
- the only ethnic hair salon in LaBelle. It was
a diverse salon that did it all.
Vickie and Andre began cooking at the
flea market on Saturdays, but their booth
at last years' Swamp Cabbage Festival con-
vinced them a restaurant would work here.
So, they opened Jonsez on "faith no
money," Andre said.
Andre does all the grilling.
Andre, Vickie, Nekia and Kris Krause are
full timers at Jonesez. Students Andre Jr.
(A.J.) the couple's son, and Luis Acosta are
part timers.


Like all restaurants, Vickie said running
Jonesez is time consuming. Balancing their
dedication to service and quality at the res-
taurant with their dedication to family (the
couple has three sons) and church poses
its problems, but they're happy with their
choice.
Again, Andre learned to cook from family
experience family members are always the
worst critics, he points out, adding "You've
got no choice but to get better!"
He finally perfected his grilling technique
and concocted his own special blend of
seasonings that complement the meat just
right.
Many customers tell him it's the best bar-
becue they've ever had. Andre's not sure
about that, but he does know for sure that
they keep coming back.
Andre said he started grilling when Mike
McDonald of Bullpit Ministries made him
his first grill. Mike worked on Andre's work
trucks and knew Andre needed a grill. He
just showed up with it one day and that's
when Andre got serious about his grilling.
He uses charcoal and wood only that adds
to the meat's flavor, he said. He never grills
with gas and doesn't like smoking his meat,
either.
Andre said his ribs and pulled pork seem
to be the most popular. He roasts his ribs
over charcoal and watches them "like in-
fants." He said he will not serve anything if
it's not perfect so you can always expect
good quality as well as good service at Jo-
nesez.
"If you have quality and good service,"
he said. "The money will come." He said he
thanks each customer for their business and
adds, "If you're not satisfied, let us know."
Although Jonesez is a small, eat outside
or take out place, Andre said his customer re-
views say the food "packs a mean punch."
He feels he and Vickie are "blessed" with
the business as it is, but says he'd like to
"step up the game:" with a barbecue pit in-
side, if the Lord is willing. "I'd like the aroma
to smell up the whole neighborhood!" he


n done right
said, but added "If God doesn't bless it, it
won't go anywhere."
You can call Jonesez for takeout at 675-
6262. They're open Tuesday and Thursday
11-6, Wednesday 11-5, Friday and Saturday
11-8; but they're closed Sunday and Mon-
day.

DAV opens


information


center
The Disabled American Veterans Chap-
ter 144 has opened an information center
at the community market. Members have
constructed a platform with three bulletin
boards, which will display information of
interest to the public.
The first board is titled 'Veterans Informa-
tion." This board displays the names, phone
numbers and meeting times of the DAV 144,
VFW 10100 and the American Legion Post
130. The three organizations will be provid-
ing information such as changes in VA policy
or benefits.
The next board, titled "Around Town,"
will give non-profit organizations a place to
advertise up coming events, meals, special
programs, etc.
The third board is for general informa-
tion. People wishing to place a ad for lost
and found, looking for work, looking for
someone or need someone for yard work
or housekeeping, should write the info on
a 3X5 card. Farms and groves needing work-
ers are encouraged to call the DAV office
and they will place the ad for them. Others
may bring the ad to the market on Saturday
morning or mail it to DAV 144, PO. Box 2459
LaBelle 33975. For more information you
can contact DAV 144 at 863 612-0300.

Building up your business


- try networking


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Good business people are always look-
ing for ways to improve their effectiveness,
regardless of the state of the economy. How-
ever, during times like these when it's so
difficult just to keep your head above water
- even the most secure businesses must dig
deep to remain successful.
Joy Rocco, founder of the Lee-Collier Net-
working Group, believes success is all about
building relationships.
To that end, she founded the Lee-Collier
Networking Group.
She began the networking group in Na-
ples a year ago and was asked by the Greater
Eastern Collier County Chamber of Com-
merce to set up meetings in Immokalee.
Lunch meetings are held in Immokalee
the third Thursday 11:30 a.m. in the commu-
nity room at iTECH. Cost is $17. Please RSVP
to joyfortmyers8@aol.com
Meetings are also held in Naples, Bonita
Springs and there is a new one coming to
Estero, which will be after hours at the Holi-
day Inn across from Gulf Coast.
Joy's philosophy is that you should be
able to enjoy your business and increase it
at the same time. If you don't, she believes,
there's something wrong. She believes that
if you network properly, everyone you come
into contact with will become a sales person
for you. It's word of mouth taken to the next
level.
She writes two newsletters per month for


the networking group and has three lunch
meetings. Joy also e-mails an At Your Ser-
vice catalog every month to 5,000 individu-
als and businesses.
It's about learning to manage your own
business by networking any time you're
away from home. Tap into your creativity to
make things better and make more money,
she said.
The networking group has a Web site
which provides pages for members, busi-
ness spotlights, special events and so on.
You can find it at: www.leecolliernet.com.
Joy is a busy lady. Writing as McKenna
Davis, she is also an author, with the mystery
Chocolate Days Margarita Nights to her cred-
it and she helps her husband with his busi-
ness, Strike Zone Umpire Training School.
Bobbi Jo Cusimano, of Speedy Electric, is
a true believer in networking and agrees that
getting back to customer service, including
sales and marketing, is the way for every
business to prosper.
One of her successful techniques is to
send out thank you, birthday and anniver-
sary cards and small gifts from her business
to regular customers. You can set up names
in advance to keep everything orderly. It's a
different and inexpensive way to tell clients
they're appreciated on a regular basis.
Bobbi said that after being laid off, she
was forced to think what she wanted to do.
It occurred to her that many times people
are afraid before they even start a venture a
sure path to defeat.


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Joy Rocco, right, presents important opportunities for business men and wom-
en to network at her Lee-Collier Networking Group meetings. She is pictured
with Bobbi Jo Cusimano, who helps plan speakers for the meetings.


Networking is something you can always
do, inside or outside of your office.
Bobbi is convinced of the effectiveness of
the networking group, saying, "I love this
group and want to see you grow."
She encourages people not to be discour-
aged. If the numbers say there is 10 percent
unemployment that means there's 90 per-
cent employment so go get it! Think posi-
tive, she said, and you'll start a domino ef-


fect. She adds that networking has allowed
her to meet so many nice people and ex-
pand her world.
Joy and Bobbi are both interested in shar-
ing their business ideas and expertise with
others. They offer ideas to not only expand
your business, but to learn to enjoy it more.
It's a business plan for 21st Century, based
on an old fashioned sense of purpose cou-
pled with a unique personal touch.
