Home again!
Little Binky, a six-year-old chihuahua, is back home with her family at last after six months of
quarantine. Last summer Binky was attacked by a rabid fox, the same fox that a short time
later attacked two boys. One of the boys, age 15, was bitten on the leg July 27 on Captain
Hendry Drive and underwent treatment. Two deputies later killed the fox. Binky was at-
tacked in the family garage and the fox was chased away by Kristin Pack. The little dog was
treated by a veterinarian and fitted with a cast on both hind legs before being transferred to
LaBelle Animal Control. Pictured enjoying their reunion with Binky are, from left: Nikki, age
9, Randi, age 7, and Rylee age 3. They are the children of Ray and Kristin Pack.


Fatalities


on CR 835
Two more passengers were
killed on Hendry County roads this
past week, bringing the total for
2010 to three. Troopers say alcohol
was a factor in the latest fatalities,
which occurred Jan. 23 about 12:43
a.m. on CR 835 north of Hookers
Point Road.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol the vehicle, a 2007
Chevrolet SUV, was traveling north
on CR 835 just north of Hookers
Point Road when it went in a north-
westerly direction onto the grass
shoulder. At that point it appeared
the driver attempted to correct the
vehicle's path. Evidence led inves-
tigators to believe the driver then
over-corrected and went in a north-
easterly direction, crossing both
lanes of CR 835. The SUV over-
turned several times and came to a
final rest on the east shoulder of the
road. All occupants were ejected.
Angie Cypress, 35 of Big Cypress
Reservation, and 19-year-old John-
ny Everette of Clewiston both died
at the scene.
Demetrae Pearson, 27, of
Clewiston suffered minor injuries.

Most of the complaints about its water will
go away once improvements are made to the
old water plant. That's what Mayor Paul Puletti
told those at the Jan. 14 county commission
meeting. A new $1.9 million nanofiltration
system will be going in soon, upgrading the
city's existing water treatment plant. Contracts
are ready and permits in place and the unit
is expected to be ready in about six months.
Eighty-five percent of the cost will be covered


Although some color may persist from time

take care of the problem, Mayor Puletti said
adding, "Good things will be happening with

Old Timers Dinner Feb. 25

The LaBelle Heritage Museum will sponsor the Annual Old Timers Dinner for the
14th year at the LaBelle Civic Center on Thursday, Feb. 25, as its community project for
the LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Festival. Cassie Williams of Cracker Cookin' & Caterin' will
serve a good ole country meal of barbecued chicken with sauce on the side, pulled pork,
scalloped potatoes, mixed collard, turnip & mustard greens, cole slaw, roll and butter,
choice of two desserts, and Cassie's own famous swamp cabbage fritters.
The cost is $15 per person. Tickets are available at the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce
on Highway 80 East and from LaBelle Heritage Museum members. The deadline is Mon-
day, Feb. 22, to give Cassie and her crew time to purchase and prepare the meal. Doors
will open at 5 o'clock to allow plenty of time to visit with those special friends seen only
at the Old Timers Dinner. Serving will start at 6 o'clock.
Zenna and Mike Gatch will provide musical entertainment and may even ask every-
one to join in a community sing of old familiar songs. Museum President Joe Thomas is
Master of Ceremonies and will conduct the search for the person who lived in LaBelle
the longest time ago. This event honors our old timers but is not limited just to LaBelle
old timers. Everyone who loves LaBelle, enjoys LaBelle hospitality, and good ole cracker
cooking is welcome.

Steadman cake auction planned


The male celebrity cake auction will take
place on Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Hendry
County Fairgrounds at 6:30 p.m. Please
come out to raise money for the Pro Stead-
man Scholarship Fund, in honor of Mrs. Pro
Steadman. "Pro" was the mother of five
4-H'ers, a leader for ten years, and very ac-
tive in the 4-H program. She believed in the
4-H organization and seeing it reach its full
potential. She was diagnosed with ALS (Lou
Gehrig's disease) in May of 1988. Through-
out her struggle with the disease, she main-
tained her interest and involvement in youth
programs as much as she could. She died

in December of 1992, but still lives on in the
hearts of the many that she influenced.
Mrs. Yvonne Swindle, Current President
of the Hendry County Fair Association, came
up with the idea of starting an annual men's
cake auction at the County Fair to raise mon-
ey to award two 4-H members with schol-
arships in honor of Pro. The idea involved
many local male "celebrities" and required
them to bake a cake to be auctioned at the
Fair. The idea really took off and now pro-
vides two college scholarships each year to
4-H'ers.

Ready for Swamp Cabbage?
Things sure are moving fast. It's time for
Swamp Cabbage already.
Looking forward to that but not to the


crowds. I hear Bobby Bare is coming to the
park been a long time since we had a big
name like that!

Homegrown
Man, that cold snap really did the grow-
ers in. Now I guess we can all look forward
to higher prices at the grocery store.
Looks like we should all get back to
growing our own!
Can't blame the farmers, they have to
make a living but the rest of us have been in
this leaky boat for a long time too.


Letter to the Editor


Re: Page 7 Caloosa Belle
"New Crop disaster program begins"!
What the hell, I read the article twice and
still don't understand it. This is what hap-
pens when lawyers and the government get
involved in anything.
I got confused between the SURE pro-
gram and the NAP coverage as well as the
FSA and the Secretarial Disaster Designation.
And now farmers are labeled as Producers.
Then of course we have the added label,
"Socially Disadvantaged Farmers."
I guess they're the one's that all the rest
of the farmers/producers that know what
they're doing as well as the taxpayers have
to pay for. Leave it to the government to give
away taxpayers' money to the Socially Dis-
advantaged!
This is the crew that we want running our
health care, auto industry and banks! OMG.
I'm no farmer, however, I have done a little
producing in my time, I really think that if the
government let our farmers grow and sell
like we used to do, and quit buying and im-
porting 50% of our produce, citrus and other
worldly goods, maybe the farmers wouldn't
need, SURE, FAP, Farm/Crop Insurance, Risk
Management Purchase Requirements, as
well as having the government and attorneys


sticking their nose in the farmer's business.
This is a government that is trillions of
dollars in debt, and they're going to tell
normal folks how to do it properly and cor-
rect? Once the politicians and lawyers are
through, it has cost millions and millions of
unnecessary taxpayers' money. It will pro-
duce hundreds of thousands of pages of lan-
guage that only an attorney can figure out,
and then they have hundreds of bureaucrats
running the show, and these people have
never farmed or worked a hands on job in
their life. Only in America!
Here's another issue that should be ad-
dressed by our give away government. Our
government through, D.O.L., and other of-
ficial agencies, have put a heavy burden on
our farmers/producers, however the other
countries that import citrus, produce and
many other items, have no restrictions on
how they grow, produce manufacture these
same products, as well as labor for $5.00 a
day. It won't be long before we (USA) will
be a third world country. Wonder who will
come to our aid then?
God Bless America, someone needs to.

how would you call
In 2005, in the Rome Masters tennis
tournament, American player Andy Rod-
dick held a 5-3 lead. He was at match point
(that means he needed one point to win the
whole match) when his opponent, Fernan-
do Verdasco hit what appeared to be a fault.
The line judge called
the ball out, but Rod-
dick quickly said, "no, it
was in." Instead of let-
ting the judge's bad call
stand and taking the win,
Roddick pointed out the
error. Verdasco then ral-
lied and won the match.
Because of his integrity, Fr. Alan
Roddick, who was the Kelmereit
number one seed in the
tournament, lost the match and his chance
to win the tournament. Asked about his re-
sponse to the bad call by a reporter, Roddick
replied, "It was nothing extraordinary. The
umpire would have seen the same thing
if he came down to look." Andy Roddick,
it seems, values his integrity and peace of
mind more than a tennis trophy.
What would you have done? No, seri-
ously, what would you have done if you
were in Roddick's place. Or a better ques-
tion, perhaps, what do you do when you're
in a similar situation? We all find ourselves in
spots like that now and then, times when we
notice a mistake that will benefit us, but cost
someone else. Perhaps it was small, you re-
ceived too much change from a cashier, or a
waiter forgot to include an item on your din-
ner bill. Or perhaps it was greater. What did
you do the last time it happened to you? The
answer will provide you with a clue about
how highly or how slightly you value your
integrity and your reputation.
A failure of integrity doesn't have to be
noticed too often for your reputation to be
damaged, sometimes irreparably. And if you
are a person who claims to follow Jesus,
it is not only your reputation that suffers,
but the reputation of all believers and the
church. There are people around, outside
the church, whose negative feelings about
the church and Christians are quickly rein-
forced when they see us slip or fail. They're
quick to observe, again, that "the church is
full of hypocrites" (Ok, they're right on this
one, but we can at least take comfort in be-
ing forgiven hypocrites). We can't escape
or ignore the reality, that once we claim to

us act, especially when we think no one is
watching.
Some time ago I offered some thoughts
on new year's resolutions. How are you
doing with yours? Whatever your answer,
it's not too late to make another, and really
significant, resolution. How about resolving
to keep a constant check on your integrity,
especially on the small things, and more es-
pecially when no one else is around to see.
What we do and how we behave in private
is a far better indicator of our true character
than what we do in public. It's really worth
doing something about.

Witch's Brew
by Pudge Lehman
To create extra working space when
cooking pull out a drawer and lay a cookie
sheet over it and close drawer until it fits
tight.
I have a ton of cook-
books I never use. I N I
guess you have to ac-
tually cook to use the
recipes ... Anyway, go
through them and pick
out any recipe that you
may actually use or like,
copy them on a copier and donate to a good
cause. Any leftover whole wheat bread or
buns can be put in a plastic freezer bag.
One day when your not busy take them out,
dry out in the oven, grate and put back in
the freezer healthier than regular bread
crumbs. Why is there a b in crumbs?
This little tidbit came from Mel Karau a
few months ago. In the old days a big tub
was filled for baths. The man of the house
was first followed by all other males in the
house. Next the woman, children and finally
the baby. By then the water was so dirty you
could lose somebody in it. Hence the sayin'
"Don't throw the baby out with the bath wa-
ter!" The only good thing about Alzheim-
ers... you get to meet new people every day;

bet soup.

Remembering a comrade
One year ago Jan. 27, members of the Hendry County Sheriff's Office and the
community lost a caring son, brother, father, friend and comrade when Sgt. Mi-
chael Home passed away. Born March 9,1963, Sgt. Home passed away on his
way home after his regular night shift. His fellow officers continue to honor his
memory as they carry on the work they shared.

HCSO gets donation of tracking K9


Sheriff Steve Whidden would like to in-
troduce its newest member of the Sheriff's
Office K9, "Lucky". Lucky is an 11-month
old black and tan Walker Hound mix that
has been trained solely on tracking humans.
Lucky was trained and donated to Sheriff
Whidden by LaBelle resident David White.
Sheriff Whidden had expressed to Mr. White
approximately one year ago, that a tracking
specific dog would help save lives by locat-
ing missing children, Alzheimer's patients,
victims of crimes and criminals themselves.
Mr. White took this expression from the


Sheriff to heart and began to train Lucky on
tracking people at an early age. Although
Mr. White has no formal experience in this
area he is very familiar with training dogs
in other areas. Sheriff Whidden stated that
he is very impressed with Lucky's abilities,
especially for being so young. Lucky started
his formal training with the Sheriff's office
last week and has been successful on every
training track. Sheriff Whidden stated that he
is very grateful to Mr. White for his time and
effort put into Lucky and is excited to put
Lucky to work saving lives.


New sheriff's citizen


academy planned

Sheriff Steve Whidden will soon begin a second Sheriff's Citizen's Academy and is
accepting applications at this time.
The response and involvement with current students has been great! This class will
soon be graduating approximately 30 students in February and we are excited about the
response that we have received from those involved.
The Sheriff's Academy is a 14-week program with each session lasting about two
hours long. This instruction provides its participants with the latest trends and proce-
dures in law enforcement as well as the duties and responsibilities of the various depart-
ments. The participants will spend a day at the firing range learning firearm safety and
firing weapons as well.
The Citizen's Academy is great for anyone over the age of 18 and it's free. All partici-
pants must have a background free of felony and violent misdemeanor convictions. If
you are interested and wish to learn more about the field of law enforcement in general
and about the Hendry County Sheriff's Office please let us know.
Sheriff Whidden and his staff are excited about this program and would encourage
those interested in attending the next Sheriff's Citizens Academy to stop in and pick up
an application, fill it out, and indicate whether you prefer a daytime or nighttime acad-
emy. Dates for the upcoming academy will be announced at a later time. We will contact
each applicant with additional information. If you have any questions or want to learn
more about the Sheriff's Citizens Academy call Lt. Susan Harrelle at 863-674-5604.

Former band students Obituaries


mourn Ellen Morgan


Ellen Morgan holds a special place in the
hearts of many former LaBelle music stu-
dents. Her death in Sebring Jan. 19 has sad-
dened them all.
Ms. Morgan served as band director
at both LaBelle Middle and LaBelle High
Schools, retiring in 1986. Twenty-three years
later, she was still in touch with many of her
"babies," as she called them.
Perhaps the best tribute to her comes
from her former students themselves:
We will never forget Miss Morgan. She
was the coolest teacher ever. (Rex Albritton,
class of 1975)
Miss Morgan was very instrumental in my
life. I am glad I knew this wonderful woman
(Stacey Owens, class of 1975)
Miss Morgan inspired musicians, all of
them. (Gari-Jo Harrison, class of 1977)
Miss Morgan was more than a band di-
rector, she was a life coach. She really cared
about your life. She listened and gave good
advice. (Sandra Taylor, class of 1975)
Miss Morgan was a wonderful teacher
who will never be forgotten by those lucky
enough to play under her direction. (Brandi
Stefano, class of 1985)
Over the years, Jeff and I have talked
about our time in "The Band" and the times
we spent with Miss Morgan. We wouldn't
trade them for the world. Even band mem-
bers from different Morgan eras share simi-
lar stories and memories of her. The bonds

we forged as bandmates have long outlasted
those we shared with classmates. (Vivian
Bennett, LHS graduate)
What wonderful memories of sitting in
Ellen's office! She took an interest in each
and every student. (Jenni Jones, former LHS
chorus teacher)
Miss Morgan was the most just teacher
I had. She made sure she had all sides of
a story before making a decision whether
for discipline or a change in the marching
routine. She shared her knowledge, but
more than that she shared herself with us.
We were allowed more information about
her life perspective with each passing year.
As seniors, she poured out as much as she
could to keep us from making poor life de-
cisions. She counseled us from her swivel
chair in the band room office. She encour-
aged us to stretch, to try things that seemed
impossible. She was tough as nails with a
heart as big as the sky. She loved kids and
animals and justice. Ellen Morgan lived her
life to prove that a woman could be suc-
cessful in a man's world as a band director.
She was right. She was absolutely the most
successful band director in the history of La-
Belle High School.
(Cindy Miller, class of 1975)

Salvation Army: Helps care



for Haiti quake victims


The Fort Myers Salvation Army office re-
ceives daily updates on the relief efforts in
place to help rebuild Haiti after the devestat-
ing earthquake. Just yesterday, The Salvation
Army, an international organization, gave a
five-day supply of food to nearly 7,000 peo-
ple. Hundred of others, including infants at
an orphanage, received medical care from
Salvation Army doctors who are responding
to the earthquake. In the U.S., more person-
nel and supplies are being sent to the coun-
try to join the 700 Salvation Army workers
who are permanently stationed in Haiti.
The Salvation Army has had a presence
in Haiti since 1950 and operates schools,
clinics, a hospital, feeding programs, chil-
dren's homes and church-related activities
through some 60 Corps community centers
across Haiti.
In times of disaster, monetary donations
and prayers are the two most critical needs
as supplies and personnel are mobilized. 100
percent of all disaster donations go directly
towards relief efforts. Funds are used for im-
mediate response services as The Salvation
Army works collaborativly with fellow ser-
vice agencies to provide food, medical care
and shelter to those in need. The Army also
incorporates a long-term response to help
people rebuild their homes and lives.
The Lee County Salvation Army has
its canteen (mobile kitchen) and crew on
standby, ready to deploy to either Miami In-


ternational Airport or Homestead Air Force
Base to assist with the repatriation of Ameri-
can citizens from earthquake torn Haiti. The
canteen and crew's task will be to support
services such as feeding operations (meals,
snacks, hydration, etc.) and providing basic
supplies for those Americans coming back
home with just the clothes on their back.
The local crew of three have extensive can-
teen training and are ready to be of help.
"We are blessed and humbled by the op-
portunity to serve and proud of the crew that
will be going over to help at Miami Interna-
tional Airport or Homestead Air Force Base,"
said Major Ann Penhale, Corps Officer. "Our
prayers go with the canteen crew in hopes
that they will be of comfort to those return-
ing back to America," added Penhale. Fel-
low Corps Officers, Major Art Penhale was
deployed to Ft. Lauderdale on Jan. 17, and
is working with a team of Salvation Army
personnel on establishing logistics for the
returning Americans.
Donors may contribute $10 via their
phone bill by text messaging the word "HAI-
TI" to 52000, and confirming the donation
with the word "YES." Donors can also give
via www.SalvationArmyUSA.org, 1-800-SAL-
ARMY and through the mail at: The Salva-
tion Army, 10291 McGregor Blvd, Fort Myers,
FL 33919. To date, more than $4.79 million
has been donated to The Salvation Army's
relief efforts in Haiti.

Log Cabin: Bring the family m0l


When the Log Cabin closed several years
ago, many residents felt the loss. Skeet and
Sarah's Log Cabin had been "the" place for
barbecue.
The long awaited reopening of the "Cab-
in" has sparked a renewal of dedicated pa-
trons and recruited others as fans.
The Schofield family has taken over the
barbecue reins from Skeet and Sarah. The
family moved from the Keys 12 years ago
where they had The World Famous Honest
John's Restaurant.
Glen and Cathy welcome patrons' return
for "great American barbecue," but their
son, John, is the owner and puts the tang
in the Cabin's barbecue. John says cooking
and grilling have always been his passion -
and great salads! chimes in sister Kathleen
Crews, who fills out the family and fills in at
the restaurant.
The family says they're happy and amazed
by the response of so many people in La-
Belle at the reopening of the restaurant.
Cathy takes a long view of their responsi-
bility. She wants to help keep LaBelle healthy
with good food but that's just the beginning.
"We should all live, work, eat and shop in
LaBelle," she said. "If we can keep more of
our dollars here in LaBelle, we can all ben-
efit from better paychecks."
Although they honor the Cabin's repu-
tation, the Schofields also see the need for
updating. Watch for a new look inside. They
are asking folks to e-mail or drop by with
photos of old times in LaBelle SCF, fun at
the mud hole etc. They promise that all pho-
tos will be returned. (Cathy reminds you not
to bring in anything you wouldn't want your
mama to see!)
The Schofields recognize that times are
tough. They are providing jobs for 20 em-
ployees, most of which weren't working be-
fore the Cabin opened, Cathy said. She add-
ed that, with the job market the way is its,
they never even advertised for help. People
just approached them daily.
Part of the Cabin family, employees are
genuinely happy to see their customers and
friends and make sure customers always
feel appreciated at the Cabin.
People come in daily for their genuine
slow smoked barbecue, owner John Scho-
field said. "It has great flavor and is fresh
every day," he said, adding that their barbe-
cue is always smoked- but you can have the
sauce on the side if you like.
Not just a barbecue place, the Cabin's
country specials feature fresh vegetables
from Immokalee and taste amazing, John
smiles. He adds that the salads are fresh
and beautiful, using the original homemade
ranch dressing from Skeet and Sara just like
the cole slaw.
John commented, "I grew up in the Keys
with fresh seafood and offer fish and shrimp
here at the Cabin. I hand dip and lightly fry
the fish and shrimp."
For the Schofields and their patrons, part
of the Cabin's appeal is the homelike atmo-
sphere. Almost every day someone shares a
"Log Cabin memory," like the fellow who
proposed to his wife. He even showed them
where he stood for the big event.
In the kitchen, Billy Haynes, Skeet and
Sarah's grandson, helps continue the family


feel.
The number of people who worked here
as teenagers is amazing, Cathy said. It's like
a family surrounded with shared food, fun
and happy times memories.
Cathy is sure that family can include folks
just passing through on Hickpoochee. All
they have to do is get them to slow down
and eat there.
"When the do, they always promise to
stop in again," she said. The Schofields are
planning to put in a Western scene by the
highway to catch their eye.
The folks at the Cabin are proud of their
smoked turkey ("we do it whole!") as well
as their smoked beef, tender tasty pork
and lightly battered, hand dipped fish and
shrimp.
For lots of folks you just can't beat home-
made soup. The Cabin offers chicken noo-
dle, vegetable beef, clam chowder, cream of
potato and cream of broccoli always made
fresh with no preservatives. John recalls
when it was so cold a few weekends ago at
the rodeo.
"Our soup saved us," he said, 'Anyone
that was there will tell you the same thing.
Our soup is delicious, fresh every day. May-
be for the next cold snap I'll throw up a
sign reading "Soup Shack" 'cause it's that
good!"
The folks at the Cabin pride themselves
on great, fresh food, fast, friendly service in
a super clean restaurant. "The Cabin is the
cleanest place you can find," they promise.
Even their water comes through a special
reverse osmosis system.
Not a barbecue fanatic? The Cabin also
offers great diner fare like chicken and
dumplings and meatloaf. Need a quick take
out meal? Don't forget their drive thru. With
a new speaker system going in, Glen said it
will be even faster ready 15 minutes from
call in.
Enjoy eat-in or take out from 10:30 a.m.
till 9 p.m. seven days a week. Watch for their
grand opening in February.

daily specials and news. You can also check

Arewarding experience is being planned

pace and swap stories with people of all
ages who share your enthusiasm to walk,
hike, bicycle, canoe or kayak in the great
outdoors.
Following this "social" walk, we will
gather at the Glades County Historical Soci-

C&P Service expands list of Navy ships that operated in Vietnam


In its January 2010 Bulletin, C&P Service
published a greatly expanded list of Navy
ships which it acknowledges operated on
the inland waterways of Vietnam. In addi-
tion to the USS Ingersoll (DD 652) (previous-
ly shown in M21-1MR), it lists 11 other deep
water ships which plied the bays and rivers
of Vietnam during the periods shown.
Even more interesting, VA now acknowl-
edges that certain types or classes of ships
(e.g., Swift Boats; LST's) either operated full
time in the inland waterways of Vietnam or
frequently enough when sent to Vietnam to
receive blanket recognition.
With this latter category, VA states that if
a veteran can be placed on the ship during
its tour in Vietnamese waters, it concedes
that the veteran is eligible for the herbicide
presumptions.
For the named ships, it is still necessary
to show that the veteran was a member of
the crew during the ships "tour" in Vietnam-
ese waters. Personnel records should show
"from-to" dates for assignment to the ship.
For ships without specific dates in Viet-
nam, VA will still have to identify when the
ship was there.
Often, this can be done by reviewing
the ships history found on the internet. You
should obtain the most authoritative evi-
dence possible and submit it to VA to sup-
port the veterans claim. VA may accept it
without additional verification.
Compensation and Pension (C&P) Ser-
vice has initiated a program to collect data
on Vietnam naval operations for the pur-
pose of providing regional offices with infor-
mation to assist with development in Haas
related disability claims based on herbicide
exposure from Navy Veterans.
To date, we have received verification
from various sources showing that a num-
ber of offshore "blue water" naval vessels


conducted operations on the inland "brown
water" rivers and delta areas of Vietnam. We
have also identified certain vessel types that
operated primarily or exclusively on the in-
land waterways.
The ships and dates of inland waterway
service are listed below. If a Veteran's ser-
vice aboard one of these ships can be con-
firmed through military records during the
time frames specified, then exposure to
herbicide agents can be presumed without
further development.

Division 93 during their entire Vietnam tour

Apply now for EPA environmental

community grants


(ATLANTA Jan. 7, 2010) The U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency is making $2
million available in 2010 to reduce pollution
at the local level through the Community
Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE)
program.
CARE is a community-based program that
works with county and local governments,
tribes, non-profit organizations and univer-
sities to help the public understand and re-
duce toxic risks from numerous sources.
EPA will award CARE cooperative agree-
ments in two levels. Level I awards range
from $75,000 to $100,000 and will help
establish community-based partnerships
to develop local environmental priorities.
Level II awards, ranging from $150,000 to
$300,000 each, will support communities
that have established broad-based partner-
ships, have identified the priority toxic risks
in the community, and are prepared to mea-
sure results, implement risk-reduction activi-
ties and become self-sustaining.
In 2009, EPA's CARE program distributed
$2 million to nine communities.


Examples of projects that received grants
include addressing waste and storm water
issues in Kennett, Mo.; reducing air and wa-
ter pollution in Holyoke, Mass.; addressing
water pollution from coal slurry in Wheel-
ing, WVa.; reducing radon and other indoor
air pollutants in Pueblo, Colo.; and tackling
the problem of hazardous waste materials
and open dumping in Toksook Bay, Alaska.
Since 2005, the grants have reached 68
communities in 34 states and territories. A
recent evaluation by the National Academy
of Public Administration (NAPA) recognized
the CARE program as a solid tested frame-
work for engaging communities and other
stakeholders.
Applications for the CARE grants are due
March 9, 2010.
EPA will conduct three Webcasts to an-
swer questions from prospective applicants
about the application process on Feb. 2, 23,
and 26 from 1-3 p.m.

Cowgirls bow to Vikings Sport Shorts


The LaBelle Cowgirls lost focus in dropping a thriller to Bishop

The 15-3 Vikings, a superior team in Southwest Florida, is led by
Senior Kaitlyn Payne, who scored 21 points.
The leading scorer for LaBelle was junior Brianna Ramos with
5 points, followed by Kaylin Cash's 4 points. Jozetta Wilson led in
rebounding with 8 boards.
The Cowgirls were to follow up on Jan. 21 against the Immoka-
lee Indians.

GoodWill's 13th project Palmetto Ranch expands


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
It was a proud moment for members
of the Palmetto Ranch community as two
events combined into a special day.
GoodWill's Tom Furig gathered the Pal-
metto Ranch community together to cel-
ebrate the official ribbon cutting for the facil-
ity, GoodWill's thirteenth project in the area.
The housing project provides necessary
amenities in one- and two-bedroom apart-
ments for the disabled.
He told the crowd that GoodWill will
invest in what the community wants and
needs. As proof, the group moved just a few
yards away to break ground for phase II, an
additional fourteen apartments.
Along with Mr. Furig, Jean Devereaux of
the HUD Board, which governs housing for
the disabled, Goodwill representatives ex-
pressed their gratitude to the City of LaBelle
and Hendry County for facilitating the con-
struction process.
Nora Fagin of Ford and Sunset Park spoke
for Rayfield Johnson, F/S P Community As-
sociation President. F/S P is located adjacent
to the new Palmetto Ranch community. She
said the residents are good neighbors and
that they appreciate Palmetto Ranch Man-
ager Morgan Puletti, who manages Palmetto
Ranch through the non-profit company, the
Columbia Property Group.
Referring to Ms. Puletti, Ms. Fagan said,
"She's definitely one of the right people."
Several Palmetto Ranch residents had
glowing words about the facility and their


new homes. Dorothy Whaley has an apart-
ment there as well as her daughter, Shareka
Gasper. Ms. Whaley said she has lived in
some terrible places but was blessed when
she asked God for a home. Her answer was
Palmetto Ranch.
Mary Brown also spoke, saying she's
happy here and glad that "God sent me back
here."
On behalf of the Goodwill team, Mr. Furig
told the residents "You do as much for us as
you might think we do for you."
The little group then moved to the ground
breaking for phase two at the adjacent lot.
With phase one of its disabled housing
complex complete and phase 2 now under
construction, GoodWill continues making
plans for LaBelle. A Goodwill superstore is
planned for construction just north of Pal-
metto Ranch on SR 80 in 2011. It will be like
the new store in Clewiston.
According to Mr. Furig, Goodwill's goal
is to develop further services including the
store and career development as well as
continue its mission of individual support
for the disabled.
Goodwill is also planning a $1.8 million
14-unit housing duplex for Clewiston across
US 27 from the old K-Mart like the one in La-
