Partnership takes


on youth
On Wednesday, April 21, the
Youth Task Force, a teen preg-
nancy prevention coalition,
hosted a Community Partnership
Forum. An esteemed panel of 16
community leaders from county
and city Government, judicial,
education, local business, faith
based, law enforcement, pub-
lic and private health and social
Service sectors tackled the topic
of "Partnering to Strengthen Our
Community."
The main focus of the fo-


issues
rum was to educate community
members on services and part-
nering opportunities in Hendry
County with regard to youth and
the community as a whole.
The forum also served as a ve-
hicle to help form and foster con-
nections which would build a
stronger community for the next
generation. Panelists gave their
perspective on the current status
of community partnerships, what

Purple town
Members of the MASH Relay for Life team took the idea of
painting the town purple to heart as they not only decorated
Country Peddler Antiques Shop with purple, but also many of
the light poles down Bridge and Main Streets and even the
Courthouse. The community was also treated to wide purple
ribbons decorating the columns in front of city hall. All the
purple was to bring attention to the big Relay for Life event
May 1-2 at LaBelle High School. The all night extravaganza
offers food, entertainment and games. Teams walk all night
around the LHS track to raise money for the fight against can-
cer. Pictured in the purple-festooned surrey are: Lois Girvan,

Group provides extras


for foster kids' wishes


by Patty Brant

Caloosa Belle
Foster children often feel like
they're in limbo. Taken out of their
homes until the law feels the en-
vironment is safe for them, these
children face emotional and psy-
chological trials daily. In the care
of a loving foster family, they may
be safe but they may still have a
difficult time adjusting to a world

they have no control over.
In addition to the emotional
and psychological problems they
face, these kids have come to live
with strangers with almost noth-
ing of their own in hand. Foster
families may have a lot of love and
support to offer, but the financial
strain of another child to care for
cannot be overlooked.

April 26. Event organizer Sgt. Bruce Slade said he hopes
to make this an annual event for the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office. He will be running in the five-mile main event
at the Wide World of Sports in Orlando May 15, the final
leg of a statewide event that began April 1 in Tallahassee.
From Hendry County, the torch was taken up by Glades
County law enforcement and then by Highlands County.
The local run began at LaBelle High School and ended at
the sheriff's office.

Chamber mining for gold


The Greater LaBelle Chamber of Com-
merce is having a party and you're invited.
Monday, May 17, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. the
chamber is hosting a special fundraiser.
It's a gold party! Just bring your old,
unwanted gold, silver or platinum pieces
and take home cash. Is your jewelry box
crowded with outdated jewelry and bro-
ken, mismatched pieces? Would you like
to finally get rid of that necklace from your
old boyfriend you haven't worn since high
school?
A professional from Guardian Metals
will be on hand to make you an offer and
purchase your precious metals. No pres-
sure to sell. They're not looking for your
heirlooms just pieces you no longer have
any use for or desire to keep. That includes
silver flatware.

Continued From Page 1

Foster parents for five years, Richard and
Laurie Carley have cared for some 15 fos-
ter children, so they understand the issues
involved.
Seeing the needs firsthand, Laurie got
an idea of how to help foster families cope
with these added financial burdens for edu-
cational tools and necessities.
The result is a new organization called
Foster Children Wishes, Inc., which accepts
donations of good used items for resale at
Laurie's shop on Bridge Street North. Lo-
cated in the Maple Corner Shopping Center,
her shop is crammed with donations from
individuals and groups. Laurie then resells
them and the proceeds go toward buying
necessities for foster children. Foster parents
come to her for their needs and she tries to
help them out, usually by providing a gift
card for that item.
Laurie is gathering support from people
throughout the area. Matt Gierden at Ash-
Britt Environmental in Fort Myers recently
donated a check and a new boys bike for a
foster child and the girls from Hair Doctor's,
right next door to Foster Children Wishes,
Inc., offer free haircuts to foster children.
As the owner of Emergency Planning
and Consulting, a trainer in first aid, Laurie
has many contacts in the area, including the
staff at Hendry County Emergency Manage-
ment, who are big supporters.
Rita Dellatore, owner of Kid City Early
Learning Academy and a former therapist
who worked with children through the De-
partment of Children & Families, said that
foster children are affected in many ways by
their situation. They don't understand that it


If you can't make it to the chamber office
during the party, just get your items there
in advance. They'll call you from the party
and give you a quote over the phone.
Gold nuggets, coins, jewelry, dental
gold all are acceptable.
You can get rid of unwanted or unusable
pieces (their condition doesn't matter) and
put cash in your pocket. Where are you go-
ing to get a better deal than that?
While you're at the gold party on May
17, take advantage of pizza takeout. Pre-
view some of Little Caesars pizza, along
with a delicious salad and iced tea for just
$4. Proceeds will go to help your Chamber
of Commerce.

isn't their fault they can't be with their par-
ents. They can carry a lot of baggage and
have real problems with self esteem, she
said.
A new bike or toy stuff that the other
kids have can make a big difference in their
world. As someone who worked within the
system for 17 years, she said kids suffer so-
cially and emotionally when they lose the
only security they've ever known.
Rita said Laurie is trying to do a good
thing, especially since it's for our own com-
munity children. Foster children in the in-
land counties don't have the same resourc-
es available to them as those on the coast,
Rita notes, adding that it's been a frustration
for years.
Laurie is the President of Foster Children
Wishes, Inc., and her husband, Richard, is
Vice President. Jessica Chadwick is one of
the group's loyal supporters. She's been in
LaBelle all her life and feels this is a good
group. "There are a lot of foster kids who
don't have permanent homes. They need
educational tools any help you can give
them would be wonderful," she said.
Laurie is also beginning a list of people
who would like to volunteer in any capac-
ity.
The organization has big dreams for
area foster children. They'd like to provide
holiday baskets for them and initial place-
ment gift cards (for things like diapers and
clothing). Eventually they hope to provide
a college scholarship, a biannual luncheon
for foster children and even camping or fish-
ing tips.
Foster Children Wishes, Inc., is working
hard to live up to their motto: "Make A Dif-
ference With Change & Take Part In Building
Their Future." You can find out more about
the group at its Web site: www.fosterchil-
drenwishesinc.com or call 863-674-0600 or

they felt was missing and how they felt com-
munity partnerships could improve from the
viewpoint of the sector they represented.
The overall evaluation of the event was
positive. Attendees said they learned about
many services that exist in the community.
County Commissioner Janet Taylor men-
tioned the positive outcome of partnership
in obtaining the Clewiston facility of the
Hendry County Health Department.
Judge James Sloan touched on the im-
portance of parental involvement, while First
Baptist youth pastor Preston Long talked on
the importance of positive mentors.
The Hendry County Economic Develop-
ment Director, Roger Harrison, emphasized
the need for all sectors in both cities and the
county to work together in order to provide
the infrastructure, a good education system
and housing which will attract new business-
es and families to our area to work and play,
therefore bolstering the local economy.
Martha Pierce, with Riverside Retreat,
welcomed the opportunity to partner more
with local organizations and community
businesses.
She called the Retreat "a great secret"
because the 150-acre camp is located right
outside of the Hendry County line, yet not
many local people utilize it.
And Lisa Sands, Director of the Salvation
Army in LaBelle, encouraged the community
to consider the need for a homeless shelter.
Lasheba Travis, Chair of the Youth Task
Force, said, "I am elated at the response of
our community in addressing the impor-
tance of partnerships."
There were 75 community members in
attendance. Through this event, we have
identified partnerships that work well, and
also some gaps.
Attendees expressed an interest in con-
tinuing this dialogue in order to strategize
on potential solutions.
The Youth Task Force and its partners will
be discussing where we go from here to fol-
low up on this successful forum.
If you are interested in being part of this
process, please attend the next Youth Task
Force meeting on Friday, May 7, from 10-11
a.m. at the Hendry County Health Depart-
ment in LaBelle.

FCB promotes bike safety; training set for May 15


LaBelle -May is Bicycle Safety Month and
Florida Community Bank would like to know
that the children in our community are as
safe as they can be when riding their bikes.
As kids get out of school for the summer, one
of the most popular activities for kids is rid-
ing their bicycles. Florida Community Bank

Department, the Hendry County Sheriff's
Department, the Community Traffic Safety
Team and the Department of Transportation

During the month of May, Florida Com-
munity Bank will have a display in the lobby
featuring bike safety material. You will also
be able to register your child to win a free
bicycle. Come to Florida Community Bank
any time during the month of May and speak
to a Customer Service Representative about

automatically get registered to win a child's
bicycle. No account activation necessary.

Letter to the Editor


Community Christian School
Dear Friends:
For more than 20 years I had the honor of
serving and teaching your precious children
at Community Christian School. What a joy
to see them grow physically, spiritually and
academically. We give God the glory for all
we were able to accomplish. It's my prayer
that you won't forget all the good years we
had together at C.C.S. I watched God do
miracles in providing the land and building
so our children would have a place where
they were educated and loved in a Christian
environment. There were individuals who
sacrificed because they believed in Christian


education.
Community Christian School board
members were an important part of that
group. I served with the majority of the
board members for more than 20 years and
I never missed a board meeting. I worked
with them, prayed with them, and also
grieved with them when we had so little
and yet so much.
We stood on faith for the Lord to provide
and He never failed-I'm sure we did at
times, but not intentionally. I also remem-
ber the parents who worked so hard to help
us. Know that God will not forget your la-
bor of love. God bless you! I believe we will
see great things from our students. I rejoice

Time for Relay
LaBelle Mayor Paul Puletti signed a proclamation recently in recognition of La-
Belle's Relay for Life event May 1-2 as Event Chair Tara Sherrod looks on. The
all night event will take place at the LaBelle High School football field. It raises
funds for research and for local services to cancer patients. In addition, it fo-
cuses the community's attention on a prolific killer that strikes indiscriminately.
The entire community is invited to come out and enjoy the food, entertainment
and events. It's not just about a cure it's also about prevention.

when I hear some are becoming teachers,
missionaries and doctors. But most impor-
tantly, I pray they will make Christ an integral
part of whatever vocation they choose
whether housewife, farmer, carpenter, etc.
I wish I could ease your hurt over the
school closing. Only God can help and heal.
I do want to say in closing that the board
members never received compensation for
all the years they served. Instead, they put


money into the school because they believed
in the work. They also are men of integrity
and love the Lord. My previous position as
principal allowed me to be aware of how
the school's income was spent and allocat-
ed. I wish it was possible to sit with each of
you to acquaint you with the history of the
school. I know you would understand. God
bless. I love you in Christ,
Mrs. Dean


Solve childhood obesity


More and more, you hear stories on the
news about our overweight children. A per-
son's weight sure can be a touchy subject,
especially during the teenage years of build-
ing self esteem.
If a parent is concerned
about the weight of their
young child or their teen-
ager, how do they find the
right words to help them
and not hurt them? Recent-
ly, Pat Dobbins, Adminis-
trator for the Hendry and
Glades County Health De-
partments had a discussion
with Nancy Witham, MD Patricia
in Ft. Myers, about child- Dobbins
hood obesity and they both
agreed that the best way to talk to your child
may be found by first looking at the way you
talk to yourself and the actions you take.
"Kids get subtle messages when they
hear parents talk about their own weight,"
Dr. Witham says. "Hearing a parent say, 'I
look fat,' without seeing simultaneous posi-
tive and effective changes can build negative
emotions and poor self-esteem. Children
don't see how to take active steps to make
healthy changes, they just hear the criti-
cism."
Childhood obesity has been a hot topic
for a few years, but most recently there is
a national focus on healthy eating, as First
Lady Michelle Obama begins a national
campaign against childhood obesity. The
focus for this campaign is healthy choices
and not about appearances. Pat Dobbins
agrees by saying, "We have to educate our
communities to focus on what our weight
says about our health, our eating habits, and
our activity levels."
We live in a convenient fast-paced world.

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.


In most families, both parents work and be-
cause restaurants and fast-foods are so con-
venient, they end up being the choices for
breakfast or dinner.
Unfortunately, all of this convenience
makes it easy for us to make unhealthy
choices.
Small changes can make a big differ-
ence. Cutting out, or limiting sugary drinks
is a great first step. Also, by eating a healthy
breakfast, you can jump start your day and
boost your performance for the remainder
of your busy schedule.
Talk to your teens; let them go shop-
ping with you. See if you can come up with
healthy food choices.
Dr. Witham urges parents to make sus-
tained changes to the whole family's diet
and food-shopping practices when trying to
help an overweight teen.
The most successful weight loss she
has seen in her teenage patients has been
a result of parents practicing eating healthy
for themselves and the whole family. Dr.
Witham goes on to say, "Telling your teen
to stop eating so much while continuing to
have risky, high calorie foods in the home is
a terrible double message to a teen, and will
likely fail. With kids, it's less about the abso-
lute numbers and more about trends,"
Dr. Witham stresses, "Early signs of devel-
oping obesity can be seen before the second
birthday. Parents, please discuss this with
your pediatrician." Making small changes
over time can positively affect the health of
your family.

We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust
* To help our community become a better place to
live and work, through our dedication to consci-
entious journalism.
* To provide the information citizens need to make
their own intelligent decisions about public
issues.
* To report the news with honesty, accuracy, pur-
poseful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearless-
ness and compassion.
* To use our opinion pages to facilitate community
debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions.
* To disclose our own conflicts of interest or poten-
tial conflicts to our readers.
* To correct our errors and to give each correction
the prominence it deserves.
* To provide a right to reply to those we write
about.
* To treat people with courtesy, respect and
compassion.

ed Way of Hendry & Glades held its annual
Giving Rocks event at RiverBend Motorcoach
Resort on April 17. Over 225 people attend-
ed, rocking the night away to good music
and raising $12,858 for the United Way and
United Way partner agencies in Hendry and
Glades Counties.
The event was sponsored by Alico, Inc.,
Johnson Prewitt & Associates, Family Eye
Care, CenturyLink, Ace Homecare and the
Kiwanis Club of LaBelle. Phil Pelletier, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser, acted as the
Master of Ceremonies. The LaBelle High
School Jazz Band performed for the audi-
ence while everyone enjoyed dinner. The
event was highlighted by a silent auction
which included items such as gift certificates


to local restaurants and hotels, and gift bas-
kets of food and fine wine.
The event committee was chaired by
Julie Osterhout who was very pleased with
the turn-out at the fundraiser. "I would like
to thank the generous organizations and in-
dividuals who have contributed to the suc-
cess of Giving Rocks. Giving Rocks is our
big fundraising event every year, and it is a
very important part of helping us reach the
$197,000 goal for our United Way," said Ju-
lie Osterhout. She added, "Giving Rocks sup-
ports not only the United Way of Hendry and
Glades, but over 30 non-profit United Way
agency partners. Our friends and neighbors
who are in need will benefit from the money
raised at the event."
The local network of 34 Inited Wav


partner agencies and programs will receive
funds from the 2009-2010 United Way of
Hendry & Glades fundraising campaign.
These agencies include: The Salvation Army,
the Children's Advocacy Center, Child Care
of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families and
many others. This network serves a diverse
range of needs nurturing children and youth,
strengthening families, meeting critical needs
such as helping the elderly and disabled live
independently, and empowering communi-
ties by bringing health and human services
to neighborhoods. The network of United
Way agencies helped over 21,000 people in


Hendry and Glades Counties last year.
Extensive volunteer involvement allows
the United Way to keep fundraising costs
extremely low, and community volunteers
evaluate agency performance and thor-
oughly study agency budgets and programs.
All money raised through the United Way of
Hendry and Glades Counties campaign re-
mains in the Hendry and Glades.
The United Way promotes partnerships
and collaborations among agencies. The
United Way of Hendry and Glades offices are
located in the LaBelle United Way House,
117 Fort Thompson Avenue, LaBelle.

Interest in LSN continues to grow


Interest in the LaBelle Sports Network
(LSN) continues to grow. With the local
youth baseball and softball seasons kick offs,
LSN is excited to announce a Community
Share Program in which leagues can earn
money simply by submitting their results to
our Web site.
"We really want to give back to the
leagues, coaches and teams that are con-
tributing content to the LaBelle Sports Net-
work," said Patty Brant, Editor of the Caloo-
sa Belle.
Launched earlier this year LSN is the Ca-
loosa Belle's free Web site devoted to youth,
recreation and leisure sports. The site pro-
vides local coaches with the opportunity to
display information regarding their teams
results, photographs, rosters, statistics, game
reports -on the organization's LSN league
and team page for public viewing.
The information is also delivered to the
Caloosa Belle's Sports Department for pos-
sible future inclusion in our pages.
Now, LSN wants to reward the coaches,
leagues and organizations that use the site.
Under the Community Share Program, 20
cents from every dollar coming from local
LSN Web site advertising will be shared with
the participating organizations of LSN.
Points will be earned each time an orga-
nization submits results to LSN. At month's
end, the points earned will be tallied and
each participating organization or league
will receive its share of the revenue, to be
distributed on a quarterly basis.
This is not a "winner take all" system.
Each participating organization will receive
some share. In addition, if you refer a local


business that becomes a sponsor, 10 percent
of that advertiser's monthly fee goes directly
to your organization. And, your group will
continue to earn points toward that advertis-
er's remaining 10 percent of the Community
Share monthly pool.
Organizations interested in joining LSN
should contact Renee Hawley at rhawley@
communitysportsdesk.com or call 1-888-
853-7904, ext. 226. LSN can be accessed


by visiting www.newszap.com, clicking on
your community tab, highlighting "Sports"
on the upper right part of the page and click-
ing on "LaBelle Sports Network."
The community share sponsors that
we would like to thank for LSN include
Forrey Grill. Langford Ford, New Hori-
zons, Nisbet Enterprises, Randy's Ga-
rage and U-Save Supermarket.

Florida Community Bank celebrated Earth Day on April 22 by growing plants
from seed and sharing them with their customers throughout the day. FCB also
displayed Earth-friendly tips in the lobby, as well as collected recycled goods
throughout the month. The roles were reversed on Curt Sinclair of Exotic Hibis-
cus, Inc., who usually presents the employees with an exotic hibiscus bloom,
when Margie Lopez presented him with an FCB-grown plant in celebration of
Earth Day.

Extension Office staff gave students a lot to think about for Earth Day: Where
does your food come from? Sonja Crawford explained that many of the things
we all take for granted are the by-products of agriculture. The students also got
to check out some goats as part of their day.

HMRC advances with technology


by Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center's imag-
ing/radiology department can now operate
with a near film-less process thanks to the
recent purchase of a PACS computer system.
PACS (Picture Archive Communication Sys-
tem) is a network of computers that store,
share and display digital x-rays.
After the patient's x-ray/imaging proce-
dure is performed, the images are immedi-
ately available for viewing, much like a digi-
tal camera, via the secure PACS computer
network. A radiologist reviews the images
on a computer screen and dictates a report
for the patient's healthcare provider.
PACS also eliminates the need to manu-
ally file, retrieve or transport film jackets. It
has the ability to deliver timely and efficient
access to images, interpretations and other
related data. PACS breaks down the physical
and time barriers associated with traditional
film-based image retrieval, distribution and
display. In addition, it removes all the costs
associated with film processing and releases
valuable space currently used for storage.
Access to patients' digital images is
strictly controlled. Anyone wanting to look


at patients' digital x-rays or scans must be
involved in their care. What they will be able
to see depends upon their role. For example,
physicians will be able to look at a patient's
digital images because they are clinical care
providers, whereas receptionists might not
be able to view clinical information.
Ed Chiarelli, the Director of Imaging Ser-
vices at Hendry Regional explains, "A patient
can show up at our facility with a fractured
vertebrae the physicians here might be un-
sure whether they want to put the patient
in a helicopter and fly him to the coast for
neurosurgery. Now they can call the facility
and ask the doctors there to take a look at
the patient's images, since they are instantly
available via PACS. (The facility would need
access and authorization to access the PAC
system.) Our hospital physicians can even
call a specialist at home, and this doctor can
log in from a home system, using the web
viewer, to look at the images and help make
a judgment call. Without a shared imaging
environment, this would be impossible."
Hendry Regional Medical Center contin-
ues to strive for quality through modern,
patient-centered healthcare.
