TOP: Rev. Willie B. Jones and
Dilsey Brown were crowned
the King and Queen of the
2010 Black Heritage Festi-
val. Rev. Jones has been in
LaBelle for 51 years since
1959. He said the Lord led
him here. "He had a job for
me," Mr. Jones said, "to help
others and be a blessing."
Ms. Brown came to LaBelle
in 1944 to be near her family.
Also honored at Saturday's
festival were the communi-
ty's high school and college
2010 graduates. Mayor Paul
Puletti recalled when the city
dump was located within a
few feet of the pavillion at
what is now Kid Jones Park -
now a beautiful meeting area
for the community.
BELOW: A new dance group
called Judah's Peace per-
formed at the 20th Annual
Black History Festival. Three
dancers, Patricia Deas, Ju-
lisa Mobley and Sharonda
Gregory, pantomimed to
Gospel music. The soul-
touching performance drew
raves from the audience.
The group earned second
place in competition at this
year's Brown Sugar Festival
in Clewiston.


Register for Special Needs Shelter


In the event of a hurricane
or other catastrophe, the Hen-
dry County Emergency Manage-
ment departments will attempt
to provide special sheltering and
transportation for those who
have chronic medical conditions
requiring special needs.
Special needs shelters are


truly identified as facilities of
last refuge for those persons in
the community with health and
medical conditions. The Hendry
County Special Needs Shelter
(West Glades Schools) is defined
as a structure that has auxiliary
power and is capable of provid-
ing a safer refuge for individuals,


and their caregivers, who require
health oversight.
Considering that the county's
medical resources are limited,
it is strongly suggested that you
pursue primary evacuation plans
with family, friends, neighbors,

The City of LaBelle is awaiting

At the city's May meeting, Ap-

that funding for the new water
treatment plant is coming together.

Fatality


on CR 833
Authorities are withholding the
name of an Immokalee farm work-
er who died in an accident May 15
on a Hendry County road.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, the worker was driving
a farm picker pulling a trailer north-
bound on CR 833, north of CR 846.
The vehicle's right rear tire began
losing tread, causing the vehicle
to travel out of control. The ve-
hicle went across the southbound
lane and onto the paved apron.
The driver attempted to correct by
steering to the right, but the vehicle
began to rotate clockwise and trav-
eled northeasterly across both the

church organizations, etc.
Speak with your physician and family
about your transportation and sheltering
needs. Have your physician execute the
necessary pre-admission procedures well in
advance of a known, pending disaster such
as a hurricane. Again, talk to your family,
friends and neighbors about providing you
with evacuation transportation. If you live in
a mobile home park or an area with an es-


tablished homeowners association, inquire
about your association's disaster plan.
Also, if you have special needs that do
not require medical sheltering, speak with
your minister, affiliate religious association
or civic organization to see what types of
evacuation sponsorship programs are avail-
able. Please keep in mind that pets are not
allowed in the shelter, so make arrange-
ments for their well being in advance.
Should you need to attend the West
Glades Schools PSN Shelter, you are re-
quired to register prior to shelter entry, and
you are required to bring a caregiver with
you into the shelter.
Registration forms for Hendry County


residents can be obtained from the Hendry
County Health Department and the Hendry
County Emergency Management Office.
Once your registration is received and re-
viewed, you will receive notification as to
whether you qualify for the Special Needs
Shelter. Should it be determined that your
needs do not warrant a Special Needs Shel-
ter, you will be notified of other shelters
available in your area in which you can seek
refuge.
For more information, or if you would
like to have a registration form mailed to
you, please contact the Hendry County
Emergency Management office at (863)-

the roadway where the front of the vehicle
struck a guardrail. The vehicle overturned
onto its right side and came to a rest on
the east shoulder of CR 833. The driver was
ejected during the crash.
The crash occurred at about 6:15 p.m.

trol of the site.
The city has the deep injection well and
construction permits in hand and several
more are in process.
The design of the new RO plant is almost
90 percent complete. Mayor Puletti said the
city needs to apply to Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection as a potential funding
source.
The city will hold a public meeting to
present the plan when all is ready.
Improvements on the city's existing wa-
ter plant are on schedule. The new nano
filtration system should be complete in Oc-
tober.

Ordinance issue?
Mayor Puletti raised the issue of whether
the city can control a situation at several
liquor-serving establishments in town. He
said van loads of scantily-clad women are
being bussed up from Miami-Dade to sell
dances to the customers.
The mayor asked the city attorney to
look into ordinances on the books to see if
the practice can be halted.

Waste services
Waste Services Inc., (WSI) is seeking to
extend its contract with the city early. The
contract doesn't expire till 2013. The com-
pany would like to get the contracts with the
city and the county in line with each other.
The county is putting out Requests for Pro-
posals at this time.
The WSI representative recommended a
semi-automated service. He said a fully au-
tomated service would not be able to serve
many areas of the county outside the cities,
so it would not be cost effective.
He said the curbside operation has been
quite successful and that the company will
continue to work with the city for commu-
nity recycling.
Mayor Paul Puletti said he would not be
in favor of going to one-day a week pick up
as a cost-saving measure.


The company will provide new uniform
tubs for commercial use and residential
tubs with the city logo. The tubs have a ten-
year warranty.
The company and the city will still need
a plan to pay for bulk and horticulture pick
up.
Mayor Puletti suggested the board work-
shop a plan over the summer to be ready by
October 1.
Although the city and county both set up
licensing procedures for taxi services sev-
eral years ago, the problem of unlicensed
cabs has resurfaced.
Lt. Marian Bryant HCSO said she will co-
ordinate talks with the city and sheriff's of-
fice on how to deal with the issue. It would
also be helpful to include the county since
cab fares are often transported between the
city and county.
David Whidden of Aim Engineering re-
ported that the Martin Luther King Blvd.
project is progressing. He said the contrac-
tor is beginning to remove the sidewalk and
asphalt and is planning the correction of
utilities placement along the roadway.
Jaycee-Lions Blvd. improvements are
also going nicely.

a time of remembrance on Saturday May

country.
The Memorial Service will be held at

Gun Range to honor Hendry County Depu-
ties that have lost their lives in the line of
duty; followed by a show of appreciation
for those that carry on to serve their com-

Green belt confusion
I moved to LaBelle a few years ago and
had never heard of a green belt. I was told
they were protected, and it was illegal for


someone to drive across it by LaBelle's finest
men and women in uniform. It just so hap-
pened that I crossed over one with my ve-
hicle to get to the road. It didn't matter what
my reason was for doing it, the law is the
law. Funny thing is, there are no signs any-
where warning anyone about keeping off
the grass! I'd like to warn others about the
possible tickets they can receive for doing
what I did. I'm all for protecting them. Not
sure why they are in the first place? Maybe
someone should right an article and educate
those moving to this area. This way no one's
toes are stepped on!


World No Tobacco Day May 31


World No Tobacco Day is celebrated
around the world every year on May 31 to
inform the public on the dangers of using
tobacco, the marketing practices of tobacco
companies, and steps that the World Health
Organization is taking to combat the tobac-
co epidemic.
For decades, tobacco companies have
glamorized their products to attract women
through placement in motion pictures, mu-
sic tours and catchy advertisements in wom-
en's magazines. Even the product packaging
has been altered to appeal to women by cre-
ating slimmer and designer-inspired cases.
This year's theme, "gender and tobacco
with an emphasis on marketing to women,"
focuses on how tobacco companies are tar-
geting women through their marketing and
product design.
The Students Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) Chapters from local schools will
conduct World No Tobacco Day events
throughout the Memorial Day weekend. As
a local theme for this year, the SWAT youth
and the County Tobacco-Free Partnership
will use "Enjoying a Tobacco-Free Holiday".
The SWAT youth and Partnership members
will be encouraging residents to participate
in Memorial Day events that are Tobacco-


Free. Throughout the Memorial Day week-
end you will find SWAT youth and Tobacco-
Free Partnership members conducting street
marketing events, gathering vital informa-
tion about tobacco-free policy from citizens
and encouraging tobacco users to utilize the
local Tobacco Cessation services.
According to the Centers for Disease
Control, an estimated 18.1% of adult U.S.
women are current cigarette smokers and
approximately 178,000 women are killed
annually from smoking.
Tobacco Free Florida is a statewide effort
to educate the public about the dangers of
all tobacco use and to help those who use
tobacco to "Be Free" and break the cycle of
addiction. The campaign has reached mil-
lions of Floridians through its advertising,
online social media, grassroots initiatives,
educational outreach and public relations
efforts.
For more information, please visit www.
tobaccofreeflorida.com. If you would like to
participate in the local community events or
have your business host an event you may
contact Valarie James at 674-4041. For more

sation Services please contact Angelica Pena

Rabies exposure is not just



from animal bites


by Pat Dobbins
Some wild animals can be very cute and
if an animal is sick or injured, your first in-
stinct might be to try to help it. Please avoid
contact with any wild or stray animals to
protect you and your family from the risk of
rabies exposure.
In our area, raccoons,
bats and foxes are the ani-
mals most frequently diag-
nosed with rabies. Other
animals that are at high
risk for rabies can include
skunks, fox, otters, bobcats
and let's not forget the stray
or unvaccinated cats, dogs Patricia
and ferrets. Each year Hen- Dobbins
dry and Glades Counties
receives several reports of rabid animals.
"Rabies is a potentially fatal disease. It
is important not to handle wild animals, be
aware of unusual acting animals and keep
pets vaccinated against rabies," said Brian
Prowant, Environmental Health Director of
the Hendry & Glades Counties Health De-
partments.
You can get exposed to rabies in several
ways, not just from an animal bite. Rabies
is transmitted through exposure to the sa-
liva and nervous tissue from a rabid animal
through a bite, scratch or contact with mu-
cous membranes such as the eyes, nose or
mouth. Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments work with Animal Control in
the cities of LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore
Haven in responding to incidents of ani-
mal bites. They also test animals for rabies
through the Department of Health state
laboratory and quarantine animals as neces-
sary. Hendry and Glades County Health De-
partments also provides rabies vaccinations
to victims of animal bites, which is the only


known effective treatment for rabies preven-
tion in humans. The following are steps you
can take to protect yourself and your loved
ones against rabies:
Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for
all pets.
Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce
the number of unwanted pets that may not
be properly cared for or regularly vaccinat-
ed.
Do not handle, feed or unintentionally
attract wild animals with open garbage cans
or litter.
Teach children never to handle unfa-
miliar animals, wild or domestic, even if
they appear friendly and never adopt wild
animals or bring them into your home.
Prevent bats from entering living quar-
ters or occupied spaces in homes, churches,
schools and other similar areas, where they
might come in contact with people and
pets.
Call your local animal control agency to
remove any stray animals from your neigh-
borhood.
Unusual acting animals should be re-
ported to Animal Control for handling. Any-
one who is bitten or scratched by wild ani-
mals or strays should report the incident to
their health care provider, as well as Animal
Control and the local health department.
Please contact the Hendry or Glades County
Health Departments: LaBelle (863) 674-4047
ext.152, Clewiston (863) 983-1408, Moore
Haven (863) 946-6022.
Keep pets under direct supervision so
they do not come in contact with wild ani-
mals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal,
seek veterinary assistance immediately and
contact Animal Control: City of LaBelle
(863) 674-338, City of Clewiston (863) 983-
1457, Moore Haven (863) 946-6000.

Theater at COE
Through the dedication of students
and staff at COE, enough funds were
raised through candy bar sales to
bring the Atlantic Coast Theater per-
formers to the school for a rendition
of Kenneth Grahame's charming story,
The Reluctant Dragon. In this tale Sir
George is hired to slay a ferocious
dragon who lives close to the village,
but the dragon is more interested in
reciting Shakespeare than fighting.
Together, they learn a valuable lesson
of friendship. Students in grades K-5
were invited to watch the performance
at no cost to them.

CenturyLink offers telephone assistance to

individuals living on Tribal Lands
CenturyLink is energizing its efforts to inform residents of two assistance programs that provide
discounts on initial telephone installation and basic monthly telephone service to qualifying low-
income consumers. Link-Up helps these consumers pay the initial costs of getting telephone
service. Lifeline provides certain discounts on monthly service for qualified subscribers.

Lifeline and Link-Up are available to qualifying consumers in every U.S. state (territory and
commonwealth). Qualifications for participation vary by state. States with their own programs
have their own criteria. In states that rely solely on the federal program, the subscriber must par-
ticipate in one of the following programs: Medicaid, food stamps, Supplemental Security
Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance or the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance
Program (LIHEAP), Head Start, the National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program,
Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or if the Household annual gross income is at
or below 135% of the federal poverty level.
The amount of the discounts also varies by state. Link-Up helps qualified low-income con-
sumers to connect to the telephone network. This federal program offsets 1/2 of the initial hook-
up fee, up to $30, for qualified households.

Residents of American Indian and Alaskan Native tribal lands may qualify for an additional $25
of enhanced Lifeline support monthly and up to $70 of expanded Link-Up support beyond cur-
rent levels. An individual living on tribal lands may also qualify for Lifeline and Link-Up dis-
counts if he or she participates in one of the above programs or one of the following federal pro-
grams: Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance or Tribally-Administered Temporary
Assistance to Needy Families.

Individuals living in a CenturyLink service area should call 800-201-4099 or
visit www.centurylink.com/lifeline to inquire about eligibility.

Caloosa Baptist honors


community
In an effort to say, "Thank You!" and "You
Are Appreciated!" to four groups of County
workers, Caloosa Baptist hosted a special
service for various service personnel groups
this past weekend. More than 200 people
attended the service, with members of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Department, EMT,
Fire Department, Florida Highway Patrol,
and Animal Control being recognized, re-
ceiving a gift and being prayed for.
"It was a great day for our church and
for our community workers," said, Dr. Les
Morgan, pastor of Caloosa Baptist. "We are
so thankful for all of the hard work our ser-
vice personnel do. Each of these men and
women are professionals in their various
fields. Without these folks, our lives would
be completely different."
On Saturday, May 15, students from the
youth group washed squad cars for the
Sheriff's Department. Doug Russell, Youth
Pastor, led the teens in this effort. "It is im-
portant that our students learn to be givers,"
said Russell. "Our church is meeting needs
and our purpose statement is, 'Be Disciples
and Make Disciples.' Part of that is setting
the example for our young men and women
to follow being a citizen that wants to be a
contributor."
Later, when Doug was asked how the


personnel
students responded to the idea of wash-
ing squad cars in the hot sun on the morn-
ing prior to prom that night, he said with a
smile, "Like the leaders that they are! We
challenged them and they participated. They
are great kids!"
Dr. Morgan reported that the congrega-
tion greatly expressed appreciation towards
those who were special guests in the morn-
ing service.
"I called the various departments forward
in the service, and as they were assembled
in the front of the church, our folks stood to
their feet and gave a standing ovation. No
one told them to do that they just did it! We
had prayer for the workers and their fami-
lies. We asked God's blessing and protection
over each department and there were plenty
of "Amens" as we prayed. It was a proud day
for us as a community and we will make this
an annual event."
Each department brought various vehi-
cles including squad cars, ambulances, fire
trucks and trucks used by animal control.
The children were shown how each depart-
ment uses the equipment, and were given
opportunity to ask questions of the sheriff,
fire chief, EMT leadership and animal con-
trol people. Following the service there was
a meal provided by the church people.

Be part of LaBelle Sports Network


Launched earlier this year the LaBelle
Sports Network is the Caloosa Belle's free
Web site devoted to youth, recreation and
leisure sports.
Local coaches can display information
regarding their teams results, photographs,
rosters, statistics, game reports -on the or-
ganization'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.
Under the Community Share Program,
20 cents from every dollar coming from lo-
cal 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.
Each participating organization will re-
ceive 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 advertiser's remaining 10 percent of the
Community Share monthly pool.
Contact Renee Hawley at rhawley@com-
munitysportsdesk.com or call 1-888-853-

The National Ethnic Coalition of Orga-
nizations Foundation has named Samira
K. Beckwith, President and CEO of Hope
HealthCare Services, as a recipient of the
2010 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. The medal
is presented to distinguished Americans who
"represent the very essence of the American
way of life, having greatly contributed to our
national identity while preserving the dis-
tinct values and heritage of their ancestors,"
according to the Foundation.
As a young child, Samira Kanaan im-
migrated with her family to the United
States from Lebanon, seeking the American
Dream. From her professional beginnings as
a social worker, she has become a promi-
nent leader in health care on the local, state
and national levels.
The Foundation points out that the El-
lis Island Medals of Honor have been aptly
named, "for the island is a symbol of diver-
sity of our nation's people -a people whose
genius, culture, artistry and thought have
joined to form a single mosaic of many cul-
tures and ancestral backgrounds."
The Ellis Island Medal of Honor ranks
among the nation's most prestigious awards.
The US Senate and House of Representa-
tives have officially recognized the honor,
and each year the recipients are listed in the
Congressional Record.
Previous Medal of Honor recipients in-
clude: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis; Rosa
Parks; John Glenn; Muhammad Ali; Lee
Iacocca; Donald Trump; Frank Sinatra; Bar-
bara Walters; and six former US Presidents.
"My cultural heritage is an incredibly
beautiful gift from my Mother and Father,"
Beckwith said. "Coming to America, my par-
ents sought a higher quality of life. Growing
up, I was richly rewarded by their sacrifices.
I cherished their ideals. My desire to help
others live a life of quality is the foundation
of my career in health care. I am humbled
by this accomplishment and recognition;
my parents would be very proud."
Beckwith was nominated by Fred Pezesh-
kan, a previous medal recipient. Pezeshkan
is CEO of Kraft Construction Company and a
member of Hope's Board of Directors.
The medal was presented during a cer-
emony on Ellis Island in New York, the his-
toric gateway for millions of people from

$1,000 Ford/FFA Scholarship

awarded to local youth


INDIANAPOLIS Two 2010 graduates of
Moore Haven High School, McKenzie Green
and Kendra Murphy, have been awarded a
$1,000 scholarship by Langford Ford, Inc.
and Ford Motor Company. Green plans to
study Agricultural Business Management at
Indian River Community College.
Murphy, whose parents are Donald Mur-
phy and Kayleen Murphy of Moore Haven,
plans to study Optometry at Florida Gulf
Coast University.
The Built Ford Tough Trucks FFA Scholar-
ship Program is designed to recognize FFA
Members' talents and accomplishments
while encouraging their future academic
achievements.
The scholarship is one of 457 scholar-
ships awarded by Ford Division, Ford Motor
Company Fund and the Ford Dealers to FFA
members who are high school seniors plan-
ning to attend college in the fall of 2010, as
well as current collegiate students. This pro-
gram is a part of Ford's overall commitment
to the National FFA Foundation.
Additionally, 5 $ 1,000 national scholar-
ships are being awarded on behalf of Ford
Motor Company. Ford Truck sponsors these
five scholarships as a special project of the
National FFA Foundation.
Ford has supported the National FFA
Foundation since the first F-Series truck was


introduced in 1948, and has sponsored the
Built Ford Tough collegiate scholarship pro-
gram since 1997. To date, the program has
awarded more than $6,056,000 in scholar-
ships to more than 6,056 FFA members
throughout the country. Ford knows the
value of hard work, and believes that hard
work should be rewarded. Educating aspir-
ing young people to become the leaders of
tomorrow is just another way of ensuring a
successful future.
The National FFA Organization, formerly
known as the Future Farmers of America, is
a national youth organization of 506,199 stu-
dent members all preparing for leadership
and careers in the science, business and
technology of agriculture as part of 7,429
local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto
Rico and the Virgin Islands. The National
FFA Organization changed to its present
name in 1988, in recognition of the growth
and diversity of agriculture and agricultural
education. The FFA mission is to make a
positive difference in the lives of students by
developing their potential for premier lead-
ership, personal growth and career success
through agricultural education. Visit www.
ffa.org for more information.

Bike fun, bike safety
On Saturday, May 15, Florida Community Bank held its first Bike Safety Day in
conjunction with the Hendry County Health Department, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office and the Florida Department of Transportation. Kids received
free helmets, reflective back packs, blinking lights and other safety material.
First, Bianca Ross from the Hendry County Health Dept. fit the kids prop-
erly with free helmets. After completing the safety course, set up by Barbara
Brown of the HCSO, the kids enjoyed lemonade and popcorn compliments of
Florida Community Bank. Mary the Clown gave out stickers and candy and
rode her bike on the safety course with the kids. The event was a great suc-
cess and FCB hopes our kids will be much safer this Summer on their bikes.
Florida Community Bank is still raffling off a child's bicycle on May 28. Stop
by anytime at 155 N. Bridge Street to register. Above: Bianca Ross from the
Health Dept. fits Daniel DiPofi with a cool helmet.

ready to exceed them," said franchise owner

ity products, great value and convenience
are our top priorities."
Overall, the HOT-N-READY pizza is a
great value, high quality, and very conve-
nient for our customers, according to Addis.
"Our goal is to serve our customers with a
piping hot pizza within 30 seconds or less.
No need to call ahead."
Little Caesars is well known for its great
value, quick service, quality ingredients, and
tremendous appeal to families. "We look

Being recognized for superior quality and
other service accolades, Addis just received
a global award titled "Pizza Pride" during
the Little Caesar international convention
this month.
"Pizza Pride represents being an ambas-
sador of the brand, operational excellence,
quality and service," Addis explains. "It's a
great achievement and we are all very proud


of this recognition."
Addis has also received top honors with
Little Caesars with receipt of the "outstand-
ing new franchise of the year" in 2008.
Giving back to the communities in which
Little Caesars does business has been part
of the Little Caesars business philosophy
since shortly after the franchise began in
1959. The new Little Caesars franchise own-
ers are no strangers in the Southwest Florida
community and have supported the United
Christian Ministries International and the
Salvation Army most recently with the Little
Caesars Love Truck providing more than 850
free meals.
