New EOC: State of the Art


Hendry ready for emergency
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
In 2005, after Hurricane
Wilma crashed through Hendry
County, then Gov. Jeb Bush vis-
ited the local Emergency Opera-
tions Center (EOC), located in
the sheriff's office conference
room. Seeing the accommoda-
tions first hand, Gov. Bush re-
ferred to the site as a "garage,"
promising funding from the state
for a new EOC.
That funding fell through,
but the county finally had its

ing all the bells and whistles. Of
course, these bells and whistles
are all necessary parts of the one
facility in the county designed to
be home to those whose job it is
to pull the pieces back together o
in a major catastrophe.
The $4.8 million state-of-the-
art facility was paid for through
grant funding. The county kicked
in enough to cover fixtures inside
the building.
The new EOC has three small
training rooms that can be used
individually or combined into
one large space. Training areas
have monitors all around so ev-
eryone can have a good view of
electronic visual aids.

Meeting at the new Emergency
Operations Center, the Hendry
County Board of County Commis-
sioners gave the go-ahead for Alico
to develop a very unique and im-
portant sand deposit on its prop-
erty off Keri Road.
In what was his last presenta-
tion before the Hendry County

sition as city manager in another

Commissioner Harris announces bid for re-election


Darrell Harris has announced that he will
seek re-election as Hendry County Commis-
sioner for District #2. Mr. Harris has been
commissioner for District #2 for the past 10
years. Mr. Harris' wife, Glenda, was born in
LaBelle and has recently retired from teach-

Category 5 hurricane.
There is power back up for all commu-
nications except administration home of
day-to-day operations of Emergency Man-
agement, Public Safety and E911. This area
uses a regular computer back up system -
adequate until the generator kicks on.
The building is complete with restrooms
and even two showers, a kitchen with mi-
crowave and refrigerators. The facility has
its own reverse osmosis system for drinking
water. During full activation, training areas
may used as sleeping accommodations.
The communications tower is visible for
a long way. A Valmont 200 monopole, it is
the largest pole made. Its foundation is the
deepest in the state 81 feet and has a di-
ameter of ten feet.
The Situation Room is the hub of com-
munications and Incident Command,
where everything is centered during an
emergency. It can accommodate 34 work
stations. It has a huge screen plus smaller
computer monitors around the walls for
video conferencing.
At the sheriff's office, general staff op-
erations, planning, logistics and many more
- were all crammed into one small area.
Penned up for several days during incidents,
there were no sleeping accommodations.
The new EOC has ample space for all.
Outside, there are hook ups for up to
four communications vehicles from out of
the county, along with water and phone.
Media hook ups are available in the front.
There is also a staging area where supplies
may be brought in by helicopter.
The EOC is home to permanent office
space for Randy Bengston and Donna Akin
of Emergency Medical Services as well as
for Emergency Management Director Lupe
Taylor and staff Kelly Dyess and Amy How-
ard. E911 Coordinator Robin McLain's of-
fice is also on site.
As proud of their new facility as emer-
gency personnel are, they are fully aware
that, as Mr. Bengston put it, "If not for South
Florida Water Management District we
wouldn't have anything."
SFWMD made the site of just under ten
acres available for the EOC, large enough to
"do the job properly."
The facility holds the promise of addi-
tional uses in the future. Grant stipulations
state that it may only be used for EOC pur-
poses for 28 years. However, at some point
in the future, IT could build on-site and a
central dispatch for all emergency services
could have its own building on the site with
a walkway to the main facility. In the future,
the site could accommodate three sheriff's
office frequencies, five or six EMS/fire dis-
tricts and two Lee County frequencies.
Even local ham radio operators Radio

and his radio skills as a radioman during
WWII under Admiral Halsey's command,
stationed at Manus Island relay station in
the British Admiralty Islands. Walter Wie-
land of LaBelle is vice-president and a vet-
eran of the Korean War. Norman Dillman of
LaBelle rounds out the core group.
Jim and Walter are both old Navy men
and long time ham radio operators. During
an emergency they perform valuable back
up communications for a wide area from
Arcadia to Naples and Clewiston to Collier
County.
When the EOC's high frequency radio
is set up, they can provide communica-
tions around the world. If repeaters and cell
phones are out of commission, then these
high frequency radios come into play.

voice" to ensure that all issues are addressed
at the commission level. Mr. Harris said he
has served his neighbors, his friends, and all
of Hendry County not only on a professional
level, but at a personal level as well.
Mr. Harris believes he has worked to
bring a conservative business approach to
the county and a working relationship with

citizens of Hendry County. Mr. Harris has
worked hard to serve Hendry County with
courage, integrity, and to vote for what he

Sand
Continued From Page 1
sand deposit has been found there that is
only the third such deposit in the country.
The other two are in the West. An Alico rep-
resentative further explained that it is a rare
grain of sand that helps oil wells and natu-
ral gas deposit production flow. This will be
important for the entire country, he said.
Alico would prefer to transport the sand
by railroad if the company can get the very
difficult approval required to extend the
nearest line at SR 29/27. The sand will be
destined for the Northeast. If they do not get
rail approval, Dr. Woodruff said Alico would
be using the largest trucks available.
The operation is to be strictly low impact
- no blasting, no dewatering and an electric
dredge would result in less noise pollution.
With no residences near, the company is
seeking special hours of operation Mon-
day-Saturday 7-7; Sunday 7-noon, 365 days
except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and
New Years. The operation would only pro-


vide some 15 jobs locally.
On the plus side for the county, increased
fuel use by trucks would result in additional
gas tax collected by the county.
A number of environmentalists attended
the meeting to voice concerns about the
project, which will be set in wetlands and
panther habitat. Theywere concerned about
the site's proximity to the OK Slough.
Public comment centered around wild-
life disruption. It was pointed out that Hen-
dry County has much to gain from ecotour-
ism opportunities afforded by areas like
the OK Slough. They were also concerned
about the extra wear and tear on roads
from large trucks.
Julianne Thomas from the Conservancy
said her group would like to see mitigation
plans before the county approves anything.
She noted that Keri Road is very dangerous
for panthers and asked that no extended
hours be granted as dawn and dusk are the
most active times for panthers.
Ellen Peterson of Save Our Creeks was
instrumental in setting aside 19,000 acres of
Fisheating Creek for a major tourist attrac-
tion. Speaking against allowing Alico to de-


velop the sand deposit, she said the slough
is unusually beautiful and accused Alico of
"taking from the county."
Audubon's Pete Quasius added that the
OK Slough is "gorgeous" land and one of
the best managed areas around. He felt ap-
proval would be premature; time was need-
ed to identify the impacts of the sand mine.
Margaret England asked that the traffic
try to avoid CR 832.
Dr. Woodruff said they could try to use
internal roads. Their goal is to be as envi-
ronmentally compatible as possible, adding
that Alico has created preserves and that
this mining operation will be a long time,
very public process.
Commissioner Tris Chapman abstained
from voting due to his employment by Unit-
ed States Sugar, which owns the Florida Ex-
press RR. However, he did comment on the


importance of such finds for the country as
a whole. "This is a tough one," he said, add-
ing that oil and natural gas reserves are lim-
ited in the US, as well as this type of sand.
He pointed out that natural gas is preferable
to other fuels and he cares about a self-sus-
taining United States.
Commissioner Darrell Harris countered
the environmentalists by saying that the
state has already taken 35-40 percent of
Hendry County land off the tax rolls and, if
the governor's USSC deal goes through, it
will be 50 percent.
Commissioner Turner said that Alico had
virtually founded Hendry County and moved
to allow the district boundary change from
General Agriculture to PUD for the 866 acres
in question. Commissioner Harris seconded
it and it passed, 3-0. Commissioner Kevin
McCarthy was not present at the meeting.

Parents, Be the Host with the Most...


Submitted by the Drug Free
Hendry Coalition
As a parent, you would never host a
party with alcohol for teens, but do you
know how to keep them from sneaking it
in the front door? With prom and gradu-
ation right around the corner, it's a good
time to brush up on your chaperone and
teen party hosting skills-- Be The Wall!
Utilize a location that has clear entranc-
es and exits, such as your home or a com-
munity center. If there are multiple exits,
block off the ones you do not want used
or use other chaperones to block the exits.
Work with your teen to decide on a
guest list ahead of time. Set a limit to the
number of people who may attend and
make a contingency plan for politely turn-
ing away party-crashers. It may be helpful
to use the phrase 'by invitation only' on the
invitations and by the entrance.
On the invitation, clearly state the be-
ginning and ending time, what to bring,
and what NOT to bring.
Ask teens to leave purses or backpacks
locked in their cars or at the front door. Dis-
courage teens from going back and forth
from your home to their car.
Lock up any alcohol in your home be-
fore the party. Ask adults who may be at-
tending the party to leave their alcohol at
home for the event.
Provide plenty to keep them enter-
tained. Utilize the television, swimming
pool, video games, karaoke machine, etc.
Remember, different things may entertain
different teens.
Provide plenty of space for them to just
'hang out' comfortably where you can see
them but not 'hover' over them.
Utilize single-serve cans instead of dis-
posable cups. DO NOT use a punch bowl
or pitchers.
Monitor behavior by circulating around
the home and interacting with teens. If you
are suspicious of any particular person,
don't single them out. Work with your teen
ahead of time to agree upon a course of
action should such a situation arise.
Never let a teen that you believe to be
impaired leave your home.
Events such as Prom and Graduation
provide a unique opportunity for parents
and other adults to communicate to teens
their expectations and rules pertaining to

alcohol use. On a recent Student Social
Norms Survey, Hendry teens rate parents as
their #1 source for believable information!
By talking often and honestly about alco-
hol, you have the ability to influence your
child's decisions about underage drinking.
Teens who talk to their parents about alco-
hol regularly are less likely to drink.
The 2009 Student Social Norms sur-
vey also reports that Hendry County teens
are choosing to reject alcohol as part of
growing up. With a continued community
response to underage drinking, Hendry
County will keep empowering its teens to
make the right decisions when it comes to
alcohol and other drugs. A special thanks
to Hendry County parents-your commu-
nication with the teens is clearly working,
keep it up! Be Clear. Be Firm. Be Consis-
tent. Be the Wall between your teens and
alcohol.
FLORIDA HOUSE PARTY LAW says "No
person having control of any residence shall
allow an open house party to take placed
at said residence if any alcoholic beverage
or drug is possessed or consumed at said
residence by any minor where the person
knows that an alcoholic beverage or drug
is in the possession of or being consumed
by a minor at said residence and where
the person fails to take reasonable steps to
prevent the possession or consumption of
the alcoholic beverage or drug. Any person
who violates any of the provisions is guilty
of a misdemeanor of the second degree."
In other words, the adult who hosts the
party stands to lose the most. Your party.

Mom, you're the best!


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
Mother's Day is a fine a day. It is appropri-
ate to set a day aside to the one who set her
individuality aside out of love for her own.
Perhaps that is why
Abraham Lincoln said, "All
that I am or ever hope to be,
I owe to my angel Mother."
Isn't that impressive? One
of the most respected
men in all of American his-
tory makes a claim that his
mom impacted him more
than any other person on
earth. Way to go, Mrs. Lin- Dr. Les
coin! Morgan
Honore' de Balzac made
the flowing remark that most of us would
have to agree with: "The heart of a mother is
a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will
always find forgiveness." Would you give
Balzac the nod on that? I believe I would
have to salute him.
The father of our country, George Wash-
ington, mentioned the inroads his mother
made into his life with this statement: "My
mother was the most beautiful woman I
ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I at-
tribute all my success in life to the moral, in-
tellectual and physical education I received
from her." I believe we would all be in order
to say, "Thank you, Mrs. Washington. Job
well done, Ma'am!"
Anne Morrow Lindbergh made a fitting
statement concerning all the mother's in the
world. See if you can add an "Amen" to this
acknowledgment: "By and large, mothers
and housewives are the only workers who
do not have regular time off. They are the
great vacation-less class."
This Sunday is Mother's Day. Perhaps
you are wondering what you should do for
her this year. Flowers are always nice, as are
cards, poems, and nice meal at a restaurant.
One thing is for sure -she deserves your
recognition. I believe it was "Mr. Author Un-
known" who wrote, "The most important
thing a father can do for his children is to
love their mother."
As a pastor I am always looking for fresh
material for sermons, talks or teaching mo-
ments that I am responsible for presenting.
Today I found one such piece of material
which I felt was a dandy. Perhaps you are not
a mom and you have never thought about

mothering as the author of the "Before I Was
a Mom" does in the following. Maybe you
are a mom and as you read this you will feel
like saying, "Finally someone gets it!"
Whatever your status is, let me share
the following with you. You will be blessed
and will want to whisper a special "Thanks
Mom". I know I did.
Before I was a Mom
Before I was a Mom I slept as late as I
wanted and never worried about how late I
got into bed. I brushed my hair and my teeth
everyday.
Before I was a Mom I cleaned my house
each day. I never tripped over toys or forgot
words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether
or not my plants were poisonous. I never
thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom I had never been
puked on Pooped on Spit on Chewed
on, or Peed on. I had complete control of my
mind and My thoughts. I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom I never held down
a screaming child so that doctors could do
tests...or give shots. I never looked into teary
eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy
over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours
at night watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom I never held a sleep-
ing baby just because I didn't want to put
it down. I never felt my heart break into a
million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could
affect my life so much. I never knew that I
could love someone so much. I never knew
I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom I didn't know the
feeling of having my heart outside my body. I
didn't know how special it could feel to feed
a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond be-
tween a mother and her child. I didn't know
that something so small could make me feel
so important.
Before I was a Mom I had never gotten
up in the middle of the night every 10 min-
utes to make sure all was okay. I had never
known The warmth, The joy, The love, The
heartache, The wonderment or the satisfac-
tion of being a Mom. I didn't know I was
capable of feeling so much before I was a
Mom.
Thanks Mom. I love you. You're the best!
Happy Mother's Day.

Gulfshore Dental Associates are

anchored in LaBelle


If going to the dentist makes you ner-
vous, Gulfshore Dental Associates can turn
it into an enjoyable experience. It's the doc-
tors and staff that make it so.
Many LaBelle folks know the practice as
Riverdale Dental Associates. However, Drs.
Dean Mourselas and Nirav Patel purchased
the LaBelle practice last February and are
in the process of making it into a totally dif-
ferent experience. They want to make sure
their patients are at ease. Their goal is to
transform their practice from being part of
a corporate office to the comfort of a private
practice.
Located in beautiful new office space
at 813 Hickpochee Ave. just east of town,
Gulfshore Dental Associates, their goal is
to provide a family atmosphere that can
help lower stress for everyone. They can
be more personable, more involved in the
community. They're planning to participate
again in Relay for Life next year, have a pres-
ence at the Swamp Cabbage Festival, pro-
vide educational information in schools and
take part in health fairs.
With complete control of the practice,
they are free to spend more time with
their patients and with the community as a
whole.
Both Doctors Patel and Mourselas provide
services including cleaning, oral surgery and
implants. They are proud to provide com-
prehensive dental care including most spe-
cialty procedures. Referrals to other doctors

Hendry Regional Medical Center chooses new CEO


By Glenda Wilson
At their monthly meeting on April 26, the
Hendry Regional Medical Center board of
trustees officially named Lynn W Beasley as
the hospital's new Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Beasley has been serving as interim
hospital CEO since December of this past
year.
He was highly instrumental in the re-
cent passage of the special hospital elec-
tion, whereby voter approval was needed
to move forward with the construction of
a new emergency department in Clewiston


and expanded services and facilities in La-
Belle.
QHR (Quorum Health Resources) initially
conducted a national search for this position
and worked closely with Hendry Regional
to identify the right candidate for the hos-
pital and the community. Board Chair, Vic-
tor Blandford, was happy with the board's
unanimous decision, and said, "Lynn Bea-
sley brings a wealth of hospital experience
to our organization, and he is committed to
making physician, patient and employee sat-
isfaction a high priority."


Church Briefs


Mr. Beasley has earned distinguished
board certification in healthcare manage-
ment as a Fellow of the American College of
Healthcare Executives. He holds a Bachelor
of Science Degree in Business Administra-
tion and a Masters in Economics.
Prior to this position, Mr. Beasley was the
CEO of Newberry County Memorial Hos-
pital in Newberry, South Carolina. He and
his wife, Barbara, have two adult children.
Barbara is still living in Prosperity, South
Carolina, but will soon join her husband in
Clewiston, where they are looking forward
to enjoying the Florida sun and furthering
their interaction within the community.

Cowboys hope heartbreaking district loss builds character


LABELLE, Fla. (CSD) They say that what-
ever doesn't kill you will make you stronger.
The LaBelle High School varsity baseball
team suffered a heartbreaking district loss
on April 28 that kept it from advancing to the
regionals, and Coach Ron Dunbar hopes it
will serve as motivation for next season.
"It will be a great game to grow from,"
said Dunbar, whose team led Island Coast
7-4 heading into the bottom of the seventh
inning, but couldn't hold on and fell 8-7.
"We only had three senior starters this sea-


son, so we'll be coming back next year with
a lot of guys who will remember that game
and hopefully grow from it."
The Cowboys posted a 13-9 record in
the recently completed 2010 season. They
were 12-4 at one point after out-scoring op-
ponents 41-4 during a three-game stretch. In
Dunbar's 11 seasons at the school, LaBelle
has qualified for the playoffs five times. The
2000 team won the district title and advanced
to the regional finals, while the 2009 squad
lost in the regionals to Naples, which went


on to capture the state championship.
For the 2010 season, senior second base-
man and pitcher Angel Alvarez batted .544
with 27 runs and 22 RBI; junior third base-
man and pitcher Josh McCardel hit .455 with
22 runs and 10 doubles; freshman first base-
man and pitcher Austin Garcia hit .403 with
27 runs, four homers and 21 RBI; and senior
shortstop Frankie Self batted .393 with 24
hits.
"Because we had two freshmen, three
sophomores and one junior starting for us
this season, it's exciting for our future," said
Dunbar, a former catcher who graduated
from LaBelle High School and played base-
ball for Minot State College in North Dakota
on a scholarship.
Dunbar's players will stay in shape for
the 2011 season practices begin in Janu-
ary and games in February by participating
in a mandatory conditioning program that's
held twice a week during the summer. Some
of the players will also compete for a sum-
mer travel team.
Dunbar said that while one of his top
goals is winning ball games, he is also very
high on instilling core values into his play-
ers.


"I always tell the kids that they need to
have their priorities in life right," said Dun-
bar, whose junior varsity coach is Jeff Bur-
ton. "God is first, family is second, education
is third and athletics is fourth. It's when you
start getting those priorities in the wrong or-
der that you have problems.
"I'm very picky about sportsmanship.
I've benched or suspended kids for sports-
manship issues in the past and I'll do it again
if necessary. I teach these kids to show class
regardless of whether they are winning or
losing."

Witches Brew


by Pudge Lehman
Once again our little town has lost a beloved resident. Jim Lon-
genecker passed away last week. He leaves a hole in our hearts and
a beautiful family that loved him.
If you forget to check your pasta and it overcooks, quickly drain
it and put it in cold or ice water. Drain and reheat in tomato sauce.
The acid will perk it up further.
To reheat rolls or tortillas, wash your hands and dry on a paper


towel. Place the item in the damp paper towel
and zap in the micro for a few seconds.
Sayin's: The heaviest thing to carry is a
grudge ... or ... The ten commandments are
not multiple choice ... or ... of all the things
you wear, your expression is the most impor-
tant. And lastly, some days you are the bug
and some days you are the windshield.

At right: Survivors of all types of cancer, all ages and circumstances, walked
the traditional first lap of the May 1-2 Relay for Life at the LaBelle High School
football field. It is an annual testimony to their spirit and to the spirit that drives
the Relay for Life.

Too much fun! Not! Contestants stuffed their partners' mouths with ice cream
for a cool but messy Relay for Life event.

for bragging rights to who could get the most people aboard.
