Certificate sale tomorrow


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Bidders have been going on
line since May 13 to gather infor-
mation on parcels for the Hendry
County Tax Certificate Sale, which
takes place tomorrow, May 28.
There are some 5,972 par-
cels in the sale, for a total of
$5,330,030.81 in taxes owed. Bid-
ders may still register on line up
to the beginning of each batch
sale. They may also put up depos-
its and do research until the sale
opens.
Parcels will go up for bid in
eight batches of 665 parcels each.
During the first hour of the sale,
the first batch will go up for bids.
During that time anyone still wish-
ing to place a bid may do so or
tweak their bid on those parcels.
At the end of the hour, bidding


will close on those first parcels.
After that, each hour the next
batch will go up for bids until the
sale ends at 5 p.m.
Sales will go to the lowest bid-
der. If there is more than one bid-
der at the same percentage rate,
the computer will chose the win-
ner randomly. If there are multi-
ple bids at different percentages,
the lowest bidder will get it at the
next lowest percentage rate from
the next higher bidder.
Hendry County Tax Collector
Peggy Hampton said last year
was the first time the sale went
on line and it was a great success.
The county gets the money more
quickly and it is easy for bidders.
The sale is put on by a company
called Real Auction.

Unemployed? Build yourself a life and a career


by Clifford Avery
Unemployment is at about 17 percent in
the county that I pastor in, and is likely to
climb higher. Nationally it's at approximately
10 percent. The unemployed have an iden-
tity crisis, many are defined by the job they
held. And many have something they don't
realize that the rest of the working popula-
tion does not have. Time.
The wonderful gift of unemployment
Time can be wasted in either play or
depression, or time can be invested in ad-
ditional training or retraining. And, time can
be used to volunteer in the many service or
church organizations. Not only does the or-
ganization receive much needed help, but
the person continues to use the skills they
have, and in the process acquire new skills
and are often given the opportunity to net-
work with others that could open up pos-
sibilities of full or part time employment.
Companies are trying to survive these
times by conserving vital resources and
keep profits up by laying off employees to
cut back on operating expenses. These
newly unemployed can't buy the goods and
services that drive our economy and compa-
nies that produce them again cut back and
lay off workers, and the cycle continues.
We have witnessed this in the auto indus-
try. When money dried up to make loans, the
auto industry in turn had an excess of cars
that were not being bought. They slowed


down the production line and cancelled or-
ders from subcontractors who make all the
off-site parts to assemble the cars. Then they
started laying off workers as did the sub con-
tractors. All these unemployed people could
no longer afford to buy cars or, for that mat-
ter, much of anything else.
For years you have been hoping for some
time to go to the kids' game, help out at the
church, go back to school, visit friends and
the list goes on. But because of your em-
ployment schedule there just hasn't been
time. Well, now that you're in this place, it's
the perfect time. I'm not suggesting that you
quit looking for a job, but there are only so
many hours in a day that are fruitful in your
job search. The rest of the time you need to
get on with your life. It is time to start doing
the things that you would be doing if you did
have the time before.
If you don't get on with your life, you are
bound to get depressed, discouraged and
worry. I often hear "now that I've lost my
job, what am I good for?" The answers will
amaze you. You are the answer to both the
prayers and the hopes of multiple organiza-
tions in your community. Be it the Salvation
Army, your local church, a Goodwill store,
the school system, local theater group. All
these organizations and many more need
your time the very time you are using to
worry.
Last year 61 million people volunteered in

Sports for all
My daughter and son played sports at
LHS. There was no problem with my son,
but in softball with my older daughter, it


was almost to the point of embarrassing.
I thought after a few years things would
change but they have not. There is still so
much favoritism it's disgusting. They play
who they want to. My daughter is graduat-
ing but for all of you coming up, be warned.
If you're not in the clique you might as well
give up. It's still a good ole boys town. They
need an independent recruiter to show them
where the players need to play, then maybe
they'll be as good as Bishop Verot. I'm glad
my daughter decided not to play. Maybe this
ad will help you all out. God bless you all.


Letters to the Editor


Hush-hush deals?
According to the Caloosa Belle (5-13-10),
during their last meeting, our County Com-
missioner voted to partially fund a consul-
tant" for a very hush-hush project to the
tune of $12,500. The EDC will provide the
other half. Supposedly this double secret
project, if successful, will generate millions
for our county along with untold number of
jobs.
Excuse my enthusiasm, but when did
our elected officials get the authority to start
funding secrective projects with public mon-
ies? Why have public meetings at all?

Terrifying experience
I wish to share a terrifying experience in
hopes that everyone else can benefit.
Tuesday, May 18, 4 p.m. I was sitting at
the red light at Cowboy Way and Hwy. 80.
When the light turned green I proceeded
across the two eastbound lanes, the me-
dium, the turning lane and locked up my
brakes in the westbound lane to avoid a
concrete pumping truck that ran the red
light on Hwy 80. Somehow it only took off
my plastic bumper.
I can't explain this but it is a dangerous
intersection even with the light.
For all of you who travel that way regular-
ly please consider that a fraction of a second
more and I would probably not be typing
this. With the bridge in downtown LaBelle
closing for periods of time this summer I
would like to encourage everyone to be es-

Foster Care Month
National Foster Care Month (May) is an
opportunity for me to thank the countless
unrecognized heroes who do so very much
for this area's abused and neglected chil-
dren.
As Regional Director of the Guardian ad
Litem Program (whose sole mission is to
advocate for the best interests of abused and
neglected children whose cases are involved
with the courts), I see people putting forth
extraordinary efforts to benefit children on
a daily basis.
Time and again, I've witnessed situa-
tions wherein the odds for success were
quite poor. Effective foster parents provide
our most vulnerable children with the basic
necessities of life. They provide time and
comfort and gentle guidance under awful
circumstances. They improve lives and en-
hance communities, and for doing so they
deserve much recognition.
On behalf of the 1,218 local children rep-
resented by the Guardian ad Litem Program
and over 500 volunteers, I thank you.

Women's Health Month


by Pat Dobbins
Did you know that May is recognized as
Women's Health Month? When women are
fulfilling the role of caregiver to children,
spouses and parents, they often forget to
take care of themselves.
Here are some key facts
and information regarding
women's health.

Heart Disease
Heart disease is respon-
sible for about 29 percent
of deaths in women, ac- Patrici
cording to the CDC. Dobbins
There are far too many
women dying of heart disease in their 60s,
when no one expects to die because that's
too young in this country. There are also
women who are really ill for many years
with heart disease which can include be-
ing out of breath or not being able to walk
up one flight of stairs. Although more men
die of heart disease than women, females
tend to be under-diagnosed, often to the
point that it's too late to help them once the
condition is discovered. Women can reduce
their risk of heart disease by modifying their
lifestyles to include well-balanced diets and
exercise.
The American Heart Association lists risk
factors for heart disease as:
SIncreasing age
Smoking
SHigh blood cholesterol
SHigh blood pressure
Physical inactivity
Obesity and overweight
Diabetes

Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common can-
cer in women. It is second to lung cancer
as the leading cause of death for women.
Experts say the fear of breast cancer can
sometimes be exaggerated, stopping wom-
en from going to their doctors for screening,
or pushing women to make rash decisions
about mastectomy, when it may it may not
be necessary.
The American Cancer Society lists the fol-
lowing as risk factors for breast cancer:
Increasing age
SGenes. Nearly 5-10 percent of breast can-

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.


cer is linked to mutations in certain genes
Family history of the disease
Personal history of the disease
Race. White women have a slightly
greater risk of getting breast cancer com-
pared with African-American women. Yet
African-Americans have a greater chance of
dying from this disease.
Early onset of menstruation (before age
12) or menopause after age 55
Not having children
Too much alcohol
Poor diet
Obesity
Stephen F. Sener, MD, president of the
American Cancer Society, recommends
controlling your weight, exercising, quit-
ting smoking and talking to your doctor
about your risk and appropriate screening
for breast cancer. He also says to keep risk
factors in perspective. "Just because your
mother didn't have breast cancer, it does not
mean you are immune to this problem," says
Sener. At the same time, it's also important
to note that some women who have one or
more risk factors never get breast cancer.

Osteoporosis
Hunched backs, back pain and frailty
used to be things older women had to ac-
cept before doctors knew anything more
about osteoporosis. Now, there are steps
women and girls can take to avoid such
problems. Osteoporosis threatens 44 million
Americans, of which 68 percent are women,
reports the National Osteoporosis Founda-
tion.
Osteoporosis is largely preventable. The
behaviors that women develop in their child-
hood, in their adolescence, and in their early
adult years really play a significant role in the
development of the disease. That's because
bodies build up most of bone mass until age
30. Then new bone stops forming and the
focus is then on maintenance of old bone.
It is never too late to keep bones strong and
avoid fractures. Your body will do what it
can to repair bone damage, but you have
to provide the tools for it, such as adequate
calcium consumption and weight-bearing
physical activity. Talk to your doctor about
your possible risk of osteoporosis, and what
you can do to prevent problems.

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.

About two feet of beautiful, glossy black hair will go to help a child with cancer
enjoy life a little more, thanks to the generous gift of 15-year-old Santa Marga-
rita Maldonado. For her part, Santa Margarita wasn't too unhappy to shed the
extra weight of the hair, which she said used to take her an hour and a half to
wash. Santa Margarita is looking forward to her new chin-length hairdo. She
also said she hopes her donation will "help some kids feel good." Santa Mar-

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.

from Georgi

STATESBORO, GA (05/21/2010)(read-
Media)-- More than 20,000 people packed
into Georgia Southern University's Paulson
Stadium on May 8 to honor a record num-
ber of graduates at Spring Commencement.
Approximately 2,400 graduates participated
in the ceremony. New Georgia Southern
President Brooks Keel, who took office in
January, served as the speaker at the event.
'This is the largest graduating class we have
ever had, and one of the best classes we
have ever had. I believe this is a sign of what
the future holds for Georgia Southern," he
said. 'I don't know who is more excited, me
or the graduates. This is my first graduation
and I have been looking forward to this since
day one." Along with the 'traditional' gradu-
ates, Georgia Southern recognized 153 fully
and 63 partially online graduates, the most
ever for the University. An addition to Spring
Commencement this year was recognition
of the University's newly commissioned
ROTC cadets. Another highlight came at the
end of the ceremony as Freedom, the bald
eagle that flies at Georgia Southern home
football games, made his second flight at
graduation. Keel provided graduates with
memorable advice saying, 'Never, ever for-
get that you are an eagle. Your colors are
true blue and white and this will always be
your house."

Corps discusses lake releases, state of the lake


by Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers, Inc.
"When it comes to it, at the end of the
day, I'm the guy that's responsible and ac-
countable for what's happening to the lake,
period. If you need to put a face to it, this is
the ugly mug right here. It's me."
Inside of the Clewiston City Hall cham-
bers, Colonel Alfred Pantano, a top official
at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, stood
and spoke like a man with a large weight on
his shoulders.
"It makes me sick. It makes me sick to
know what we're doing," he said. "I'm here
to face you all, and confront it, and be hon-
est with it."
More so than most government officials,
Colonel Pantano, walking into Monday
night's Clewiston city meeting in full mili-
tary garb, thin black-rimmed glasses and a
shaved head, spoke without reservation.
He is at the top of a long chain of supervi-
sors, managers, representatives, engineers,
contractors and sub-contractors who are
focused on ensuring the safety of residents
living, and property located, near Lake
Okeechobee, the second largest freshwater
lake in the continental United States.
The occasion for his visit, and that of oth-
er senior officials who also find themselves
working week in and week out on the resto-
ration of the 143-mile dike -- they lined the
east wall of the chamber almost completely
on Monday -- was a message that the lake is
far too high now -- fully two feet higher than
a regulation schedule would have it, and
four feet higher than last year's dry season --
and that releases to the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie canals are necessary.
"We're in May and we haven't even hit
the wet season yet," he warned.
The concept is a simple one: When lake
levels rise, so do the chances that a failure
or a breach can occur at some point along
the levee system. The fear is, should such a


breach occur, and water levels be sufficient-
ly high when it would, many lives, especially
those of residents living in the south and
southeast sections of the lake, would be in
danger.
The simple
answer to mini-
mize this possi-
bility is to drain
water from the
lake. This be-
comes a com-
plicated propo-
sition, especially
for Colonel Pan-
tano, because
Colonel Alfred what occurs
Pantano when he does
this is that estu-
aries being fed the water, at capacities of up
to 4,000 cubic feet per second, are harmed.
Ecosystems absorbing the impact of this
very unnatural event compromises the ani-
mals living in those estuaries, and threatens
to undo the very work the colonel's team is
tasked with carrying out.
"Our focus as a district, more so than any
district in the corps, is ecosystem restora-
tion," he said. "I want you to know up front,
it pains us, it really does, it pains us to put
this water into those estuaries. It's absolute-
ly damaging and destroying the estuaries.
That's a fact."
But the fact is that the lives of people out-
weigh the lives of those animals, he seemed
to say. The chorus of criticism from people
living on either coast in vehement opposi-
tion of the releases into their waterways is
an unfortunate circumstance.
"As much as I love the environment, and
as much as I care about the ecosystem ... I
can't do anything to jeopardize human life,"
he said. "That's not gonna happen. You have
my commitment that that's not gonna hap-
pen."


Obituaries


Harold William Bischel, 61
LABELLE -Harold William Bischel, age 61,
of LaBelle, passed away May 12, 2010, in Lehigh
Acres.
He was born Aug. 11, 1948, in Tampa, the son
of the late Helmuth and the late Norma Jean
(Hollon) Bischel. He was a resident of LaBelle
since 1964. Harold served in the Marine Corps in
Vietnam and was a recipient of the Purple
Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietna-
mese Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Cam-
paign Medal w/Bronze Star and Rifle Expert
Badge. He worked for many years as a Certified
Cadastralist with Okeechobee, Glades and
Hendry County Property Appraisers offices. He
was the Hendry County GIS Director since 2007.
Harold was a member of the Church of God-La-
Belle.
Survivors include his wife, Anita (Pflum) Bi-
schel; sons, William Jacob Bischel (Nancy) and
Jason Scott Bischel, both of LaBelle; brother,
Helmuth Bischel (Betty) of Pensacola; sister, Lil-
lian Elizabeth Bischel of Tampa; and grandson,
Jacob William Bischel.
He was preceded in death by his brothers,
Charles, Kenneth, and Ralph Bischel.


Funeral services were held Saturday, May 15,
2010, 10 a.m. at Church Of God-LaBelle with
Rev. Cliff Gobble officiating. Interment followed
in Fort Denaud Cemetery, LaBelle.
Arrangements by Akin-Davis Funeral Home -
LaBelle.


Though never mentioning the state's plan
to acquire U.S. Sugar lands directly, the colo-
nel said the alternative of directing the water
south isn't feasible yet, though he hopes that
it will be.
So now, all he can do is engage in pre-
dictive analysis to determine just how much
water must be released -- the Corps only has
the ability to release water six times slower
than rainy or stormy events are able to pour
it into the lake so pre-planning is essential.
According to him, heavy rain events, a
storm or a hurricane, has the potential of in-
troducing up to four full feet of water to the
lake, an "adrenaline" rush of liquid.
The analysis also considers the require-
ment of the lake's own ecosystem and why
the Corps could never keep the lake level at
a very low measure, either.
"If we get it right, we're a hero because
it retains the water you want and it protects
the people," he said. "If we get it wrong,
then we got people's lives and property at
stake. You have a plan to get it right, but you
might not get it right."
The colonel also discussed the work


around the dike as coming along steadily.
The area which is now being worked on is
called Reach 1, which focuses on the Paho-
kee/Belle Glade/South Bay area. It has been
identified as having the highest chances of
failure.
The first measure, although the colonel
stressed that this was simply one measure
among several, includes installing a cutoff
wall into the dike 70 to 80 feet deep to "re-
duce the permeability of the structure."
This has been worked on for the last few
years and work around the entire dike is not
expected to be finished until past 2020.
He is cognizant of the power of the lake.
"I refer to it as the sleeping giant," he
said. "I remember the first time I went out
on Lake Okeechobee. It was a beautiful sun-
ny day when we arrived. Before I knew it, I
closed my eyes and opened them again and
the rain was coming in horizontal, the winds
peaked back up to 50, 60 miles an hour. I
looked out at the horizon at the water and
I saw the whitecaps and I thought for a sec-
ond, 'this is the inland Atlantic I'm looking
at here'."

Prom time
The annual LaBelle High School Junior-Senior Prom was held Saturday, May
15, at the Riverbend Motorcoach Resort on Highway 80 in LaBelle. Over 230
guests and chaperones attended this formal affair. The theme of this year's
prom was "Midnight Masquerade." Large masks greeted guests as they ar-
rived and masks were available for guests to use during the evening. The
keepsake for each guest was a small aluminum tin in the shape of a mask.
The catered dinner featured Italian food with chicken parmesan, lasagna, a
beautiful salad bar and luscious chocolate fountain for dessert. Guests were
photographed by the river as the sun went down and in a beautiful white ga-
zebo near the river. A horse-drawn carriage chauffeured guests for a short
ride around the park. Inside the guests danced and enjoyed the music until
midnight. At approximately 10 p.m. the King and Queen were crowned. The
2010 Prom King was Adrian Pena and the Queen was Olivia Luckey. From
the feedback received by the administration at LaBelle High School, a safe
and magical time was had by all. The guests and chaperones would like to
thank Riverbend Motorcoach Resort for hosting the 2010 LHS Junior-Senior
Prom. The facilities were beautiful, the accommodations were superb and
the staff who helped did a fantastic job. We are fortunate in LaBelle to have
such excellent neighbors and a wonderful place for such an event.
