Hospital


vote


March 9
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
INI Florida
In a little less than one month,
Hendry County voters will decide
whether or not to allow Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center to go ahead
with a $14 million expansion a
new emergency room at the facil-
ity's Clewiston hospital. Some $2
million of the project is expected to
be invested into strengthening the
center's presence in LaBelle.
It is the lone item on the March
9 ballot.
Hospital administrators say they
must spend money in order to
make money. Rather than continue
funneling a part of their earnings to
the costly upkeep of an aging facil-
ity, the center must invest in its fu-
ture, maintains Lynn Beasley, Hen-
dry Regional's interim CEO.
How does it expect to keep
its assessed ad valorem tax at 2.9
mills? Much of that is currently
used for general operations, and to
offset the indigent care. The board
is asking residents to approve use
of up to one mill of that tax toward
securing the funding to pay for the
construction of a revamped emer-
gency room.
A state constitutional amend-
ment requires voter approval on
public projects taking longer than
a year to realize.
Mr. Beasley has not wavered
from a pledge not to raise taxes,
but it depends on many factors.
Plain economics are at the center
of the board's reasoning: With
newer facilities, and a push toward

attracting more physicians and services to
the area, the hospital's financial situation
can only improve.
Almost immediately after construction is
completed, the board hopes to realize a sav-
ings in the overall operation of the facility.
Administrators are hoping to attract doc-
tors to provide the services that county resi-
dents currently must travel elsewhere to re-
ceive. In LaBelle, the board hopes to recruit
an ear, nose and throat doctor, and others
to complement the 730 patients administra-
tors say are treated monthly in LaBelle.
Administrators are also pushing to pro-
vide better diagnostic services in the west-
ern portion of the county, including imaging
and laboratory areas.
"People think the hospital is dead bro-
ken," said Glenda Wilson, Hendry Regional
Medical Center Foundation executive direc-
tor. "We have been profitable. The LaBelle
center was paid for with cash and nothing is
owed on the building."
Voting 'no' on March 9, then, would be
disheartening, Mr. Beasley said.

Arrests

LaBelle
Angela Marie Warren, 34, was arrested
Feb. 10 and charged with possession of a
controlled substance without a prescription,
possession of marijuana under 20 grams
and possession/use of drug equipment. Sgt.
Elver was arresting officer.
Devon Sharrod Kennedy, 23, was arrest-
ed Feb. 10 and charged with VOP: felony or
community control. B. Weaver was arresting
officer.
Alan Cardona, 14, was arrested Feb. 8
and charged with burglary of an unoccu-
pied structure unarmed and larceny grand
theft $300-$5,000. Sgt. Olvera was arresting
officer.

Clewiston
Oketto D. Adams, 28, was arrested Feb.
8 and charged with a nonmoving traffic vio-
lation driving with a suspended license first
offense, possession of marijuana with intent
to sell, manufacture, deliver Schedule I and
fraud-impersonate give false ID to law en-
forcement. J. Poole was arresting officer.


"We think it would affect them (resi-
dents) in a negative way for several rea-
sons," he said. "It would delay us being
able to bring new facilities, technology, new
physicians to the community to better meet
their needs." He said the emergency room
has seen steady growth and the facilities
are simply inadequate to care for the 1,000
patients on average the facility treats. "We
have three exam rooms with very limited
privacy. We can do a better job," the CEO
said.
The emergency room was built in 1951,
with no major renovations since. "We've
patched, painted and cleaned," added Ms.
Wilson.
Clewiston resident Jeff Barwick said he
sympathizes with the contingency in La-
Belle which for many years must have felt
left out as taxpayers.
Watching their money go to the hospital
in Clewiston has been a tough proposition
for them, but at least now it seems there are
efforts to address the imbalance.
As one of the three largest employers in
the area, the hospital has a large stake coun-
ty wide as a major driver of economic sta-
bility. Mr. Barwick is fearful of not support-
ing efforts to allow the hospital to continue
serving its need in the community.
"You find me a community the size of
Clewiston that loses a hospital, the effect is
devastating," said Mr. Barwick. If successful,
ground breaking is expected to occur soon
after the vote, with completion within 18 to
24 months. The foundation will host refer-
endum education sessions at the Clewiston
Museum on Feb. 23 and March 2 at 5:30
p.m. For information, contact Glenda Wil-
son, 863-983-2735.

Real service
I over heard something Sunday from a
couple at the table next to me that warmed
my heart. It seems that someone in the Prop-
erty Appraisers office has a heart. Every time
I have been there in the past the workers


tried very hard not to look at me and almost
ignored me in their effort not to help me.
They have never been customer friendly.
I heard about a widow going to get her
tax status changed a couple weeks ago and
the property appraiser employee not only
helped her, but walked with her to the clerks
office to get a copy of the death certificate
needed to change tax status. The recent wid-
ow was crying and the employee helped her
change her status to widow and gave her a
hug before she left. Now that is worth a lot
in this day and time. That employee needs
to be promoted and give classes in customer
service skills to everyone else in the apprais-
er office.

Our Purpose...
The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a unique
trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of
journalistic service to the citizens of the community.
Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive
on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax
surpluses are reinvested in Independent's mission of jour-
nalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the
community's deliberation of public issues.


many youth are unaware of these danger-
ous consequences. Many
believe that "smokeless"
means harmless, but in
fact, it contains 28 can-
cer-causing agents that
could lead to oral cancer
and gum disease.
According to the Cen-
ter for Disease Control,
oral cancer is the sixth- Patricia
leading cancer in males Dobbins
and one of the most difficult types of cancer
to diagnose, treat and cure.
You can take the plunge in 2010 and
commit to quit smokeless tobacco. Join the
Great American Spit Out on Feb. 18 and say
goodbye to smokeless tobacco once and
for all. The Hendry County Tobacco Pre-
vention program in collaboration with the
Everglades Area Health Education Centers
and Hendry Regional Convenient Care Cen-
ter will be hosting a tobacco cessation class
starting March 3-April 7, 2010.
The six week class is free and you may
qualify to receive free Nicotine Replacement
Therapy in the form of patches, gum or loz-
enges. If you have any questions or if you
would like to register for the class please
contact Valarie James or Nora Duley-Mal-
donado at 674-4041 ext 128.
Recently, Tobacco Free Florida launched
a new website dedicated to smokeless to-
bacco.
This site, www.SmokelessKills.com, is
designed to expose the dangers of smoke-
less tobacco with hard-hitting statistics and
graphic images.

bacco dependency is an addiction and pro-
vides tobacco users with tools for empow
erment, which are necessary for long-term
success.

Diana Pendrey, Dorinda Williams Campos, and Deona Campos have your flower
and gift collection ready.


Family Florist at your service


by Dale S. Conyers
Caloosa Belle
"It's all about family," Dorinda Williams
Campos said, speaking of why she named
her new business LaBelle Family Florist. "Not
only the members of my family who work
here but also because of LaBelle, which is
such a family friendly town."
Dorinda is the fourth generation to live on
the family land in Ortona and no stranger to
the business world. She and her husband,
Sal, traded and sold antiques, and traveling
as far away as Texas to trade and sell.
Her daughter, Deona, had been working
as the secretary for her son Nathan's com-
pany, Campos Construction, and decided
to start a knick knack shop called the Sassy
Southern Belle in the same building. Itwasn't
long before the construction company was
relegated to a back room and Deona filled
the shop with terrific gift selections.
Soon Dorinda and Deona decided to con-
vert the Sassy Southern Belle into LaBelle
Family Florist. "We drove about town look-
ing at other buildings and that's when we re-
alized there wasn't another pink building in
town," Dorinda said of their hot pink shop at
450 Hickpochee Ave., across from city hall.
"Wait until you see our delivery van, it's just
as distinctive," she added.
Floral stylist Diana Pendrey soon joined
Dorinda and Deona. Diana, a fourth genera-
tion Floridian, is also a cousin. She was born
and raised on Sears Road. "I started work-
ing five years ago for Mrs. Joanne (Craft) at
LaBelle Florist," Diana said. "I was happy to
come here and work for family. We're all
about customer service because without
them we wouldn't have a business," she
added.
"When you're walking around the store
if you see anything you like and would like
to have it worked into an arrangement we'll
do our best to make that happen for you,"
Deona said.


If you're looking for something other
than flowers they can design a gift basket for
you; or maybe a unique knick knack would
do the trick. "I'm right where I need to be
at this point in my life and working with the
best staff anyone could want, my family,"
Dorinda concluded.


IT'S ABOUT RESPECT
IT'S ABOUT DIGNITY
IT'S ABOUT LOVE


We understand.
At Hope, we know
each day is a gift.

We provide
exceptional care
everyday -
wherever it's
needed.

Republican Women
Federated Republican Women's Club, Hendry-Glades had its inaugural meeting
in LaBelle on Wednesday, Feb. 10. Fittingly, the Florida Federated Republican
Women's Club was born at the Clewiston Inn in December 1949, with its very
first official meeting in January 1950 in Sebring. Guest speaker Ana Gomez-Mal-
lada, First Vice-President of the FFRW, provided background for the ladies and
helped them get off to a good start. The Hendry-Glades group will jump right
in to organization activities, including a booth at this month's Swamp Cabbage
Festival, a FRWC White Elephant Sale on March 27 and a booth at the Sugar
Festival in Clewiston. The mission of the group is to help lead the party and get
Republican candidates elected to office. The group must hold six meetings per
year. The next will April 21 at Don's Steakhouse. The meeting begins at noon
with social time at 11:45 a.m. Call Marianne at 675-7703 for more information.

LaBelle, FL (Grassroots Newswire) Feb-
ruary 9, 2010 -Curves of LaBelle is en-
couraging women in the area to show their
philanthropic strength by participating in
the annual Curves Food Drive. And, even
though donating food to families in need is
its own reward, the club is offering compel-
ling incentives for both existing and poten-
tial members who participate.
From March 1-31, Curves of LaBelle will
collect non-perishable items and monetary
donations for food banks in the local area.
The goal, according to Dian Johnston of
Curves of LaBelle, is for the community to
come together to help families in need. "At
the core of our business is the message that
women are stronger when they rally togeth-
er, and that is the point we hope to bring
home with our food drive," said Johnston.
"We want to show our community just how
powerful the generosity of our members
can be."
According to Johnston, members who
donate a bag of groceries or make a mini-
mum donation of $30 during the month of
March will receive a reusable Curves gro-
cery freezer bag for free. Non-members
who do likewise between March 8-20 can
join Curves for free. Curves will waive the
cost to join.
Johnston says that as part of this effort,
Curves of LaBelle will be participating in a
company-wide contest for the most food


drive donations collected by Curves loca-
tions across the nation. Winners will receive
one of several cash prizes to be donated to
their local food bank. Each year, Curves loca-
tions collectively donate millions of pounds
of food to feed the hungry.
"We hope women in the LaBelle area
will come together and participate in this ini-
tiative," added Johnston. "Even if you're not
thinking about joining a gym, you can still
drop off your donations. There are so many
families -right here in our own community
who need our help."

Local 4-H'ers excel at State Fair


by Matthew Ruch
The 2010 Florida Fair, held Feb. 4th-15th,
was indeed a, "Super Fun, Super Fair!", as its
league of Superhero hosts promised! Sever-
al of our county's youth, from the "Pioneer
Sewing Club", had the opportunity to partic-
ipate in the fair's 4-H fashion show, and did
a "super" job! After a year filled with diligent
work on their projects the youth, under the
tutelage of Pat Bosley, were rewarded for
their perseverance with each taking home a,
first, second, or third, place ribbon, within
their category!
The 4-H members did a great job and
their garments look wonderful! Thank you
to all who helped to make this year's fash-
ion show a success: Kate Smith, 2010 4-H
fashion host; Kaley Mires, Diana Converse,
and Loveda Perry, 2010 4-H fashion show
judges; and the many parents, group lead-
ers, and other adults, without whom's sup-
port the 4-H program, on any level, could
not function.
In addition to the 4-H fashion show, many
4-H members from throughout the state par-
ticipated in public speaking, dramatic inter-
pretations, dance performances, musical
showcases, and the 4-H-FFA livestock show,
including rabbits, chickens, ducks, turkeys,
cattle, horses, and other animals.
Representing District 12, which is com-
prised of Hendry, Lee, Charlotte, and Col-
lier counties' 4-H programs, were Korina
Chilcoat in public speaking and musical
showcase, and Tyler Collins in dance.
Also present were Florida 4-H officers,

South Florida Water Management District
Notice of Agency Action
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD or District) gives
notice of its Agency Action for the conbnuabon of Water Use Permli
26-00377-W for Diversion and Impoundment secondary use and for agricul-
tural irrigation use serving 2845.79 acres of sugar cane using a seep
age/furrow irrigation system. Withdrawals are from the Hendry Hilliard
Canal via two existing facilities. The project is known as Dunwoody Dover-
spike Annex with an annual allocation of 4656 million gallons and a tota
maximum monthly allocabon of 610.38 million gallons. The permit is subject
to 20 Llmibng Conditions. The Project is located in Hendry County in Sec-
tions 1-3, 26, 34-35 Township 43 South Range 32 East; located south ol
Old US Hwy 27 and just west of Flaghole Road. The use is reasonable-
beneficial, will not interfere with any presently existing legal use of water
and is consistent with the public interest. The permit was issued January
25, 2010 to U S Sugar Corporation and SBG Farms Inc. c/o US Sugar Corpo
ration at 111 Ponce De Leon Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
The above Permit and Staff Report, including limiting conditions to pro
vide reasonable assurances that the projects meet SFWMD statutes and
rules can be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Vegullla, Deputy Clerk, during
normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ex-
cept legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or
by telephone at (561) 686-8800 extension 6739.
The District's agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sec
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ing a pebtion. The procedures for petitoning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Distric's permit
ing decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The pebtion must
contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the
Office of the Clerk at the SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road
West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Pursuant to Rule 28-106.104 Fla. Admin. Code
any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00 a.m. on the
next regular business day. Filings by e-mail will not be accepted. A copy ol
the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days
of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, whichever
first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsecton 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad
dress indicated above at the time of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the District=s acbon is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
min. Code, including:
(1)Identification of the action being contested, including the permit num-
ber, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD idenbfi
cation number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner and pet-
tioner's representative, if any.
(3)An explanabon of how the petitoner's substantial interests will be af-
fected by the agency determination.
(4)A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5)A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate.
(6)A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitoner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
uire reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.
8 If disputed issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in-
cude an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules
or statutes.
(9) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the
action the petitioner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed action.
A petiton that does not dispute the material facts on which the District's
acton is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise
shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule
28-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a pebtion means
that the District's final action may be different from the position taken by iI
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla
Stats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The
SFWMD is not proposing mediabon for this agency action under Secbon
