Farmers trying to rebound

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Area farmers and growers are still reel-
ing from Mother Nature's latest challenge.
According to County Agent Gene McAvoy
of the University of Florida's Cooperative
Extension Service, freezing conditions have
socked over $100 million in damages to agri-
cultural interests in the five-county area.
His best guestimate is that Hendry Coun-
ty's share is probably 40 percent of that, but
it could be higher.
Vegetables were hardest hit. Mr. McAvoy
said fields were completely devastated, ex-
cept for very young transplants, 6-8" tall, that
were covered with dirt to ward off the cold.
Cucumbers, eggplant, squash and peppers
were devastated, with a few cold resistant
crops like cabbages managing okay.
Of course, farmers are replanting. Veg-

Community rededicated to MLK journey
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
There was a strong message of hope, the sig-
nificance of community, tradition and the future as
marchers gathered at Kid Jones Park after their an-
nual march celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
Monday, Jan. 18.
Pastor Alonzo McKenzie encouraged everyone
to do what they can as a community to help in the
aftermath of the deadly earthquake in Haiti last J.-
week. He asked them to be generous in donating r/" 1]i -
for the victims and asked the crowd to, "Make Mar- tr
tin Luther King's dreams live outside of this day." I "
He told them to look beyond the past to the future "',',
and pull the circle of community together again.
Sheriff Steve Whidden added his voice, saying
eyewitnesses to Dr. King's time should pass along
their memories to the younger generation.
Mayor of the City of LaBelle Paul Puletti clarified Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant

the message of one of the day's signs. He
noted that Rosa Parks sat so that Dr. King
could walk so that Obama could run.
The message follows the time line of
Rosa Park's refusal to give up her seat on a
city bus in Birmingham, Al., which led to Dr.
King's nonviolent efforts for equality which,
some four decades later paved the way for
Barack Obama's election to the highest po-
sition in the country arguably the world.
He also reminded everyone of the many
people who have never stopped working to-
ward the goal of equality. Next year, he told
them, they will be marching on a new three-
lane road. The city just opened bids for the
long-awaited MLK renovation project, in-
cluding a new sidewalk and curb.
The most important thing young people
can do to make a difference in their world,
he told them, is to register to vote when they
turn 18.
Andre Jones told the crowd that Dr. King

for the farmer, Mr. McAvoy said. Normally,
plantings would be staggered so harvests
come in at different times. With everybody
planting at the same time, more bad news
for the farmer could be down the road, like
flooding the market.
Citrus did the best through the freeze, he
said. There was some frozen fruit, but it will
take longer for the harvest story to play out
than for the veggies.
Fruit that could be harvested quickly is
okay, but the longer it stays on the tree, the
more damage the fruit sustains. There is
also the danger of twig damage that could
affect next year's crop.
Sugar cane took a hard hit. Most of it
froze. The longer it stays unharvested the
lower the sugar content, he pointed out.
Like citrus, the sooner it's harvested, the
better the result, but the mills can't handle
it all at once.
Mr. McAvoy said newly planted cane will
regrow but a normal 12-month growing pe-
riod will be reduced to just 9-10 months -
resulting in lower sugar content and lower
tonnage next year.
Nurseries sustained some damage to
palm trees and the like. He said it's hard

to get handle on this side of the market, he
said, but it could affect bottom line later.
This freeze was just the latest in a series
of problems local farmers and growers have
had to contend with recently.
In the past few years they have been
hit by a hurricane, tropical storm and last
year's freeze and some of the small grow-
ers may not make it financially. One area
grower lost $1 million overnight and one in
Hendry County is already up for auction, Mr.
McAvoy said.
He predicted some of the bigger growers
with multiple locations fared better and will
withstand this.
He noted that agriculture has been a
bright spot in the economy, "but this could
knock some of that shine off."


Continuing tough times for farmers may
bode very badly for the entire country. Mr.
McAvoy said the US is very close to depend-
ing on foreign food. The volume of imports
is quickly creeping up on exports, he said,
adding that the quality and safety of food
imports is not as good as homegrown.
He noted that, although produce in the
market is required to be labled as to the
country of origin, that doesn't always hap-
pen because there is little enforcement at
either the state or federal level.
Consumers need to complain to their
store manager or Department of Agriculture
if their produce has not been labeled. He
said he feels consumers want to buy Ameri-
can, but they need to be active in helping to
ensure its quality.

"opened the way for our kids to dream." He
added that "people will help you when you
try to help yourself. Kids need to know it's
not a dead end it's a big world." As Rosa
Parks refused to give up her seat, he said
the community needs to refuse to give up
its kids to drugs and all the bad influences
around them.
August Ross' message came directly
from historical events when a young boy
from Chicago was beaten to death in Mis-
sissippi. She said Emmett Teal's mother
thought that what was happening in the
South at the time was not her concern since
she didn't live there.
After the tragedy of her son, she realized
that those events did affect her. Such condi-
tions affect everyone, Ms. Ross said, "all the
world concerns us."

Sheriff initiates COPS: Community Policing Program


Sheriff Steve Whidden Policing (COP)
Program which follows the national guide-
lines for addressing crime concerns in local
communities. The award of a U. S. Depart-
ment of Justice 4 Year Grant allowed him to
hire four additional deputies, which in turn,
allowed him to reassign four experienced
deputies to the newly created program re-
ferred to as COPs. The Hendry County Com-
mission agreed to fund the fourth year as a
grant stipulation.
The sheriff has identified seven areas of
the county experiencing crimes unique to
their locations. These have been prioritized
according to the severity of the crimes. The
COPs deputies are developing community
contacts and starting a dialogue with resi-
dents to identify issues and work together to
address them. They will develop a working
rapport with city and county agencies, such
as code enforcement, the health depart-
ment, county courts and probation, etc. to
help the residents eliminate conditions that
facilitate criminal behavior. An emphasis will
be placed on Crime Prevention techniques
and Neighborhood Crime Watch, with the
assistance of Sgt. Barbara Brown, a certified
Crime Prevention Practitioner. After school
programs and activities within communi-
ties will be evaluated and enhanced where
practical, to offer the youth alternatives. The
four deputies will work a flexible schedule
uniformed, or not, as the activity dictates.
During January the COPs deputies will
be hosted by the Collier County Sheriff in a
shadowing program for two weeks with his
COPs deputies. They will learn what ideas
have worked and which ones failed. The


Lee County Sheriff has made the same offer
which will be accepted in the near future.
Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden
stated, "This is an example of my commit-
ment to the citizens of Hendry County to
build better relationships with all agencies,
.e ,-' -* ,


both within Hendry County and adjoin-
ing counties and government agencies. It
was my promise to you to implement new
ideas and programs that would help in mak-
ing Hendry County a safer place to live and
visit."

Watch for seam
I just wanted to let everyone know about
a horrible scam going around. I was con-
tacted by a young women who said she was
from a company called score boards and
they were preparing the t-shirts for the mid-
dle school football team and our business
was chosen to be advertised on the back. It
was a great advertising opportunity. I was a


bit hesitant at first as it was a lot of money
($299) but she lowered the price to only
$256 if I paid right then and there. When I
finally gave in and gave her the payment info
she hung up on me! There was no call back
number, nothing! I should have known! I
started to investigate and realized I had been
scammed. I called the schools and they had
never heard of the company name. I imme-
diately went to the bank and stopped the
check. A few days later in my bank records I
see they had tried to cash the check. It came
in under the name Universal Adcom. When
I Googled it, no surprise. The first thing that
pops up scam, scam, scam!!! We realized
they scammed my father months earlier out
of $500 with a magnet scam which seems
to be their main scam. I don't want any oth-
er business owners to fall for this horrible
scam.

Taps
I can remember the first time I heard the
haunting strains of that lonesome bugle as it
played Taps over the freshly dug grave of my
Grandfather, Charles Hughie Long during
World War Two, in Mount Hope cemetery in
Logansport, Indiana.
Grandpa Charlie had served in the First
World War which had been advertised as
the "War to end all Wars", but someone ap-
parently didn't get the memo, and the rest is
history, even to this day, as the Nations sons
and daughters face the potential for Taps
echoing over their graves, to be.
Remembering my Grandfather's burial,
but not really knowing the origination of
Taps, I discovered that it originated in 1862
at Harrison's Landing in Virginia during a
skirmish between Union and Confederate
forces. It seems that a Union Captain upon
hearing a wounded soldiers moans decided
to rescue him and, at great risk, was able to
drag him to safety, only to discover that the
soldier was a Confederate and was dead.
To be absolutely sure, he lit a lantern and
found himself looking into the dead eyes of
his own son. The boy had been studying
music in the South when the war broke out,
and without his father's knowledge had en-
listed in the Confederate Army. Heartbroken
the father asked for permission to give his
son a full military funeral. Due to his son
being a Confederate, his request was only
partially granted and he was granted permis-
sion to have one musician to play a series
of musical notes that had been found in his


Witches Brew


by Pudge Lehman
The holidays are over, Chris and Paul's
wedding was beautiful and all is well with the
world. If you have a bread maker, instead of
mixing up the ingredients every time, make
several mixes by combining all the dry in-
gredients well and put them in sealed plastic
bags. When ready to make bread just add
the wet stuff. My mother used to make cake
mixes that way before they came in a box.
During our recent freezing weather the TV
kept advising people to check on their pets,
plants and the elderly......... Did ANY of my
precious children check on me?... I could
have been a very large popsicle. That's OK
when they get elderly I won't check on them
either.

son's pants pocket. He chose a bugler for
the ceremony and the haunting melody, we
now know as Taps, used at military funerals
was born.
I didn't know that there are also words to
the song Taps, and they bear repeating:
"Day is done---Gone the sun---From the
lakes---From the sky---All is well---Safely rest-
--God is nigh.
Fading light---Dims the sight---And a star-
--Gems the sky---Gleaming bright---From
afar---
Drawing nigh---
Thanks and praise--For our days---Neath
the sun---Neath the stars---Neath the sky---As
we go---This we know ----------- God is nigh."
In a perfect world there would be no
need for a "Taps", but as history continues
to remind us, as long as men satisfy their
lust for power and avarice through other
people's sacrifice, we can only try to draw
solace from our continuing belief in "God
being nigh."

United Way for


emergencies

The United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades has announced that Lee, Hendry and
Glades Counties will receive funds to supple-
ment emergency food and shelter programs
in the area. Lee County will receive $506,586,
Hendry County $36,509, and Glades County
$6,557.
The selection was made by a national
board that is chaired by the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency and consists of
representatives from The Salvation Army,
American Red Cross, United Jewish Com-
munities, Catholic Charities USA, National
Council of the Churches of Christ USA, and
the United Way of America.
A local board is charged with distribut-
ing the funds appropriated by Congress to
expand the capacity of food and shelter pro-
grams in high-need areas. The local Board
determines how the funds awarded to this
area are to be distributed among the emer-
gency food and shelter programs run by lo-
cal human service agencies in the area.
Under the terms of the grant from the
national board, local agencies chosen to
receive funds must be the following: be pri-
vate voluntary non-profits or units of govern-
ment; have an accounting system; practice
nondiscrimination; have demonstrated the
capability to deliver emergency food and/
or shelter programs, and if they are private
voluntary organizations, they must have a
voluntary board. Qualifying agencies and
organizations are urged to apply.
Public or private voluntary agencies inter-
ested in applying for these Emergency Food
and Shelter Program funds should contact
the United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades,
7275 Concourse Drive, Fort Myers, FL 33908
or call 239-433-2000 to request an applica-
tion. The deadline for applications to be re-
ceived is February 5, 2010.
Cliff Smith, President of the United Way
of Lee, Hendry, and Glades added, "The
emergency food and shelter funds are be-
ing put to work where they are needed the
most, and the administrative costs of getting
the funds to the agencies who actually pro-
vide emergency food and shelter is only 2%
of the total. That is extraordinarily low and
speaks to the efficiency of the program."

New crop disaster program begins


WASHINGTON, Dec. 24, 2009 Agricul-
ture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that
USDA has implemented the new Supple-
mental Revenue Assistance Payments pro-
gram (SURE) in accordance with the 2008
Farm Bill. Vilsack also encouraged produc-
ers to visit their USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) county to participate in the program
if they suffered crop production losses dur-
ing the 2008 crop year. "This program is an
important component of the farm safety net
and will provide financial assistance to pro-
ducers who have suffered crop losses due to
natural disasters," said Vilsack. "Producers
will receive payments beginning in January,
in time to help them with planning for next
year's crop."
SURE provides crop disaster assistance
payments to eligible producers on farms
that have incurred crop production or crop
quality losses. The program takes into con-
sideration crop losses on all crops grown by
a producer nationwide. SURE provides as-
sistance in an amount equal to 60 percent
of the difference between the SURE farm
guarantee and total farm revenue. The farm
guarantee is based on the amount of crop
insurance and Non-insured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program (NAP) coverage on the
farm. Total farm revenue takes into account
the actual value of production on the farm
as well as insurance indemnities and certain
farm program payments.
To be eligible for SURE, producers must
have suffered at least a 10 percent produc-
tion loss on a crop of economic significance.
In addition, producers must meet the risk
management purchase requirement by ei-
ther obtaining a policy or plan of insurance,
under the Federal Crop Insurance Act or
NAP coverage, for all economically signifi-
cant crops. For 2008 crops, producers had
the opportunity to obtain a waiver of the risk
management purchase requirement through
a buy-in provision. Producers considered so-
cially disadvantaged, a beginning farmer or
rancher, or a limited resource farmer may be
eligible for SURE without a policy or plan of
insurance or NAP coverage.
A producer must have a farming inter-
est physically located in a county that was
declared a primary disaster county or con-


tiguous county by the Agriculture Secretary
under a Secretarial Disaster Designation. Re-
gardless of a Secretarial Disaster Designation,
individual producers may also be eligible for
SURE if the actual production on the farm is
less than 50 percent of the normal produc-
tion on the farm due to a natural disaster. For
SURE, a farm is defined as all crops in which
a producer had an interest nationwide.
For more information on the new SURE
program, please visit your local FSA county
office or http://www.fsa.usda.gov.

Caloosa Baptist invites special


guest for Cracker Day event


This Sunday, Jan. 24, Caloosa Baptist
will begin holding "Florida Cracker Day" as
a reminder of the rich heritage that is part
of Southwest Florida, especially in Hendry
County. To kick-off this first of what is hoped
to be an annual event, Judge William "Bud"
Hallman III will be coming to Caloosa Bap-
tist.
Judge Hallman is no stranger to this
area. He was raised in a cattle-ranching fam-
ily whose ancestors were among the early
pioneers to Florida in the 1830s. A direct de-
scendent of the Robert's family in the Felda-
Immokalee area, he grew up riding horses,
working cows and wanting to be a cowboy.
Ranching ran in his family; his great-grand-
father once owned 10,000 head of cattle and
45,000 acres. However, his life took various
turns he would have never dreamed pos-
sible.
Judge Hallman eventually went to law
school and later was appointed as a Judge
by former Governor Jeb Bush to fill a vacant
seat in the 5th Circuit, overseeing cases in
Citrus, Sumter and Hernando counties. A
year later, he won uncontested in the judi-
cial elections, assuming his current Sumter
County-based seat.
Today the 56-year-old judge, even while
enmeshed in a completely new career, still
loves being a cowboy.
Though he retired at age 40 from the
rodeo, and was focused on his law career,
that "itch" to cowboy never went away. Last

year, he made his comeback, following a
visit to a friend's local steer wrestling school,
he began to compete again in events around
Ocala and all over the state. This past Labor
Day weekend, he made his fifth trip to the
Dodge Southeastern Circuit Finals Rodeo in
Davie, winning the steer wrestling event. In
April, he's headed to the National Circuit Fi-
nals in Pocatello, Idaho, where the winner's
purse can reach $100,000.
Hallman stated, "I never really thought
about being a judge. I feel that God blessed
me with the position."
As a competitor, the Judge is required to
stay in top physical shape for steer wrestling,
a timed event that involves dismounting a
horse, and wrestling a 400-to-500-pound
steer to the ground by twisting its head to
the side. His fastest time ever is 3.2 seconds.
Physical injury is not an unknown issue as
a cowboy. He has broken his leg three times,
tore a pectoral muscle, bruised his ribs, even
had his two front teeth knocked out. To keep
in shape, he runs and lifts weights.
Hallman, who is married and has two
daughters. He and his family have 50 head
of cattle and five horses.
The public is invited to come hear Judge
Hallman at Caloosa Baptist this Sunday at
10:30 a.m. The church is located 200 yards
behind Flora & Ella's on Highway 80 in La-
Belle.

of efforts to prevent and reduce substance
abuse among youth, and also to address
the issues within our community which
increase the risk of substance abuse while
promoting factors that minimize the risk of
substance abuse in youth, and over time,
among adults.
To achieve its goals, the coalition plans to
educate coalition members and parents on
how to support positive social norms con-
cerning alcohol and drug use in our com-
munity. The coalition will also work with
local law enforcement and the Division of
Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco (ABT) to
limit youth access to alcohol and tobacco
through compliance checks at local retail-
ers.
Since forming in October of 2008, the
coalition has collected real time local data
on the past 30 day use of alcohol, tobacco
and marijuana. The survey given to Hendry
County middle and high school students,
not only measures perception of use among
peers, it measures parental approval and
