After considering numerous options
from four different companies, the commis-
sioners opted to continue its affiliation with
Waste Services, the county's current waste
collection vendor. The decision came at the
June 22 commission meeting in LaBelle.
With a local office at 1378 SR 29N, Waste
Services was the board's choice. Deferring
to a request from the Felda community, the
board stipulated that the south area should
continue to be serviced by Choice, managed
by Lee and Linda Collins.
The current franchise with Waste Services
and Collins Disposal will expire on Sept. 30.
With the county partnering with Lee

DARE to have fun
LaBelle Elementary School fifth grader
Gabriel Fernandez, 12, is a member
of this year's DARE graduating class.
His artwork was chosen as the basis
for the design of the new DARE truck,
which was donated to HCSO by the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
This year, almost 600 fifth graders
countywide learned about the dan-
gers of drugs through the ten-week
DARE program. Sgt. Barbara Brown
and Deputy Ty Marshal, with Deputies
James "Woody" Clark and Kristi Her-
rera and the HCSO Explorers, threw
the traditional graduation party at LES
on June 3.


The annual American Legion Post 130 of LaBelle Flag Day Retirement Ceremony
took place Monday, June 14th. During the year, flags that had been 'retired' were
brought to the American Legion. Continue to bring flags to the American Legion for
the next Flag Day Ceremony which will be June 14, 2011. Bob Schall and Boy Scout
Tanner from Troop 9, gave a last Salute before the ceremony began. The flags were
placed on a bunk bed frame for their retirement.

Helms Road

Extension: earn

tax credits

The Governor's Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Development ap-
proved the application by the Hendry
County Board of County Commissioners
for the Helms Road Extension Project to
participate in the Community Contribu-
tion Tax Credit Program.
This allows businesses that make con-
tributions to this project eligible to apply
for a tax credit of up to 50 percent of the
value of their contribution against their
Florida Corporate Income Tax or against
their Sales and Use Tax (if the business is
registered with the Florida Department of
Revenue to collect and remit sales tax).
This also allows insurers, who make
contributions to the project, eligible to
apply for a tax credit up to 50 percent
of the value of their contribution against
their Florida Insurance Premium Tax.
Other sponsored projects in Hendry
County include the State Road 80 Widen-
ing Project, the Hendry LaBelle Commu-
nity Civic Park (Soccer Park), the LaBelle
Heritage Museum, the Clewiston Muse-
um, the Harlem Community Civic Park,
the Harlem Library, the LaBelle Regional
Sports Park Complex (Forrey Park) and
Edison State College.

the chamber by July 1.
There is limited space, so make your
plans now. There is no fee for vendors to set
up.
The chamber is also seeking donations
of any amount to help pay for kids' activities
that day. The fun continues till 8 p.m., lead-
ing up to the fireworks.
The chamber will be selling barbecue

full force.
That would mean the county could
move a single stream pick up (combining
all paper fibers and containers together)
to match Lee County. Last month com-
missioners opted to piggy back with Lee
County's waste facility rather than construct
its own facilities. Yard trash pick up will re-
main once monthly.
In addition, automated services will be
available in Hookers Point, Port LaBelle and
Harlem, as was recommended for those ar-
eas.

Zimmerly leaving
The commissioners heartily wished Ron
Zimmerly well in his new endeavors. Mr.
Zimmerly will end his employment as Di-
rector of Grants and Special Projects with
the county on June 30 to accept a position


as finance director for the City of LaBelle.
He also plans to run for county commis-
sioner in District 4, currently held by Kevin
McCarthy.

Flavored tobacco products-What you need to know


Tobacco companies have long denied
they are targeting youth with their flavored
tobacco products, but in fact a recent poll
by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
found that one in five youth between the
ages of 12 and 17 had seen flavored tobacco
products or ads, while only one in 10 adults
reported having seen them.
When the FDA was given the authority on
June 22, 2009, to regulate tobacco products,
their first act of business was banning the
distribution and sales of flavored cigarettes.
This was a profound first step in protecting

Florida's youth against Big Tobacco's pat-
tern of targeting youth with their flavored
tobacco products and advertisements.
However, flavored tobacco still comes in
a variety of products such as cigars, cigaril-
los and smokeless with flavors like vanilla,
orange, chocolate, cherry, coffee and other
kinds of flavors that make tobacco products
especially appealing to kids, and can lead to
tobacco addiction.
These products have an alluring appeal
and are often referred to as a gateway for
children and young adults to become regu-
lar tobacco users. According to the FDA,
young tobacco users choose flavored prod-
ucts because they "taste better" and are per-
ceived "safer."
Another way Big Tobacco is targeting
youth is through product packaging. Fla-

vored tobacco products tend to resemble
candy packaging with bright colors and
bold graphics. In a study done by the FDA,
52 percent of youth smokers between the
ages of 13 and 18 who had heard of flavored
cigarettes reported interest in trying them,
and nearly 60 percent thought that flavored
cigarettes would taste better than regular
cigarettes.
Hendry County Tobacco-Free Partner-
ship, in collaboration with local Students
Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) chapters,
will be working toward a voluntary ban on
flavored tobacco product sales in Hendry
County.
The Student Social Norms Survey, which
is taken by Hendry County 7th-12th grades
during the fall, show that 84 percent of our
youth are not using cigarettes however; the


perception is that all youth are smoking.
Research has shown that flavored tobacco
products appeal to kids, disguise the bad
taste of tobacco, is just as addictive as reg-
ular tobacco products, and have the same
harmful health effects as regular tobacco
products. For more information on how you
can help keep a dangerous product out of
the hands of Hendry County youth please
contact Valarie James at (863) 673-4041 or
attend a monthly Tobacco-Free Partnership
meeting.

Another panther found dead
The remains of a six-year-old radio collared male panther (FP144) were collected
on June 21 on the Big Cypress National Preserve Addition Lands north of 175 in Collier
County. The cause of death was intraspecific aggression.
The carcass is currently being stored at the Florda Wildlife Commission Naples Field
Office and will be sent to the FWC Wildlife Research Lab in Gainesville for necropsy.
The remains will be archived at the FL Museum of Natural History. This is the 12th
panther mortality for 2010, the third resulting from intraspecific aggression.
The last panther to be found dead in the area was a 12-14 month old male panther
discovered Memorial Day morning, May 31, on the shoulder of CR 833, approximately
0.4 miles north of the intersection with CR 832. This is the ninth panther road mortality
of 2010.

of the discussions currently taking place.
Thanks for participating!
FEMA, substation mess
Apparently Raoul Battaler and the BOCC
officials aren't up to speed on how FEMA
works. I have attended numerous meet-
ings for the past 6-8 months on FEMA storm
preparedness management as well as other
topics.
To start with, FEMA doesn't go around
looking up cities and counties that have
problems from storm damaged buildings.
That's not how the government works. There
are no guarantees of much of anything from
our government except taxes. In his story,
Mr. Battallier seems to think that FEMA only
gave out invitations for this $980,000. Well,
that's how it works. We should all be glad
this new FEMA person, Lee Licata, is more
than willing to help.
What difference does it make if the prior
FEMA guy was fired or was a job loss due
to the economic cut back? Maybe if some-
one from the BOCC or staff had been at the
FEMA, FDOT meetings this all would have
been cleared up years ago.
The government entity must file forms
and follow FEMA procedures if they want
assistance. The city or county with the loss
has to do most of the leg work. You can't
sit back and hope that someone else will do
your work. Maybe that's why they've been
having all these classes.
I can tell you one thing. No one is go-
ing to get a FEMA official to a citizen bash-
ing and answer questions as to why FEMA
didn't make any offer plain, loud and clear
back when it counted. This might get a little
embarrassing for those who didn't do their
job and follow up with FEMA back in 2005.
Like my Dad used to say: Failing to prepare is
preparing to fail. I'm just saying someone in
county government didn't do their job and
finger pointing now isn't constructive.

Listening is essential for life


By Les Morgan, pastor
Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle
A man in North Carolina bought a new
car with a voice-warning system. ... At first
he was amused to hear the soft female voice
gently remind him that his seat belt wasn't
fastened. ... Edwin affec-
tionately called this voice
the "little woman."
He soon discovered
his little woman was pro-
grammed to warn him 7
about his gasoline. "Your -
fuel level is low," she said
one time in her sweet
voice.
Edwin nodded his Dr. Les
head and thanked her. Morgan
He figured he still had
enough to go another 50 miles, so he kept
on driving. But a few minutes later, her voice
interrupted again with the same warning.
And so it went over and over. Although
he knew it was the same recording, Edwin
thought her voice sounded harsher each
time. Finally, he stopped his car and crawled
under the dashboard.
After a quick search, he found the appro-
priate wires and gave them a good yank. So
much for the little woman!
He was still smiling to himself a few miles
later when his car began sputtering and
coughing. He ran out of gas!
Somewhere inside the dashboard, Edwin
was sure he could hear the little woman
laughing. People like Edwin learn before
long that the little voice inside, although ig-
nored or even disconnected, often tells them
exactly what they need to know.
Have you heard that little voice inside of


you? What has it been saying lately? Have
you been complying to its warnings and in-
sight, or just ignoring its intuition?
Chances are high that God has been
speaking to you through that "little inner
voice."
"What would God want from me?", you
may ask. "After all, there are billions of peo-
ple in the world. Why would He care about
me."
The answer is clearly given in the Bible
-Because the Father has always longed to
have an ever deepening relationship with
you as a person,
He has been urging you to listen as He
is talking with you spirit to spirit. He wants
to be the focal point of your life so you will
reach your maximum potential.
Perhaps an illustration from the life of
Whistler, the great American artist, will be
helpful.
When Whistler was at the height of his
artistic career, a wealthy patron purchased
one of his pictures on the condition that the
artist would accompany him home and help
select a spot to hang the picture.
Once at his mansion, the man held up
the picture first here and then there, each
time asking, "How about this?"
Finally Whistler said, "You are going
about this all wrong. What you must do is
remove all the furnishings from the room,
hang the picture where it will be best dis-
played, and then arrange the furniture in re-
lationship to the picture."
Sound familiar?
While many wouldn't mind adding God
to the furnishings of their lives, that isn't
what God would have.
What He wants is to be placed as the

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

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.


focal point of our existence, and only then
may we arrange the miscellaneous para-
phernalia of our lives.
This is why Jesus was so adamant and
passionate in Matthew 6:33 when He stated,
"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else,
and live righteously, and he will give you ev-
erything you need."
A businessman well known for his ruth-
lessness once announced to writer Mark
Twain. "Before I die I mean to make a pil-
grimage to the Holy Land. I will climb Mount
Sinai and read the 10 Commandments aloud
at the top."
"I have a better idea," replied Twain. "You
could stay in Boston and keep them."
Make sense?
God doesn't require us to go to an ex-
treme "out-of-character" position to hear
from Him. He simply wants to be invited
into your life to talk with you, enhance you,
forgive you, heal your brokenness and dis-
close His truth to you. Jesus said it clearly,
"Whom the Son of Man sets free is free in-
deed." (John 8:34)
And when you really get to thinking about
it . listening to God sure beats walking
down the road alone sweating like a mule
when you could be riding.
Listen to God. He is not a liar!

Church in LaBelle, located 200 yards behind

Register for SBDC program


FGCU's Small Business Development
Center (SBDC) is offering a new program to
enhance the skills of potential and existing
small business owners. Business 2day/Inde-
pendence 2morrow provides participants
a detailed profile of what it takes to write a
business plan, the "blue print" needed for
successful small businesses.
If you are thinking of starting a small busi-
ness or want to improve the options in your
existing business this program may be what
you need.
Financing is a big part to help get the
small business started and a business plan is
necessary when you visit a bank, broker or
other source of financial assistance.
In that business plan you will need a


profile of your business, your product, your
experience, financial projections of what it
takes to operate that business, and a com-
prehensive executive summary. You will
learn how to incorporate this information
into your plan.
The program begins Monday, July 12,
2010 at Edison State College in LaBelle.
Classes run from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM every
Monday through September 14.
Cost is $100 and you will receive mate-
rial, business plan software, and certificate
of completion for your hard work.

DAV tracks cool weather
Want to know when cool weather will ar-
rive? Look on the bulletin board at the DAV
Community Market on Saturday mornings.
For years, DAV Commander Steve Williams
has responded to complaints about the hot
weather by telling people how many weeks
were left before it arrives. This year he placed
a tracking chart on the bulletin board. First
thing Saturday morning, he crosses off one
more week. "That's how you approach the
subject," says Steve. "You can complain
that we have to deal with this heat and hu-
midity for another four months or you can
say there are only 16 weeks left until cool
weather arrives. I prefer the latter because
next week, there will be only 15 weeks left,"
he explains.

Donate old cars
Now that summer is here people may be
thinking of donating their old cars as pat of a
clean up. The Boys and Girls Clubs would be
happy to take your old cars. People donat-
ing to the clubs will not only get rid of the
unwanted car, but will be contributing to the
clubs. Boys and Girls Clubs really work with
kids in most communities and offer a safer
place. If you wish to donate a car, call 800-
246-0493. Donations are tax deductible

Richard Harvey
Junior Midgets (ages 11-13), coached
by Rudy Campbell
Senior Midgets (ages 12-15), coached
by Ron Howard.

tion to place larger kids on older teams and
smaller kids on younger teams. Registration
is held at the Winn-Dixie grocery store in La-
Belle on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Remembered: Dr. Oehlbeck, a


When the Consumer's Research Council
of America chose Dr. Luther W Oehlbeck
(husband of author Barbara Oehlbeck) as
one of America's Top Physicians, he said it
came as a total surprise.
Following serving in the Pacific theatre of
World War II, he was faced with deciding in
which direction to take his life. He said, "I'd
thought a lot about medicine, and photogra-
phy and to some extent law. My father gave
me a camera when I was nine years old and
took me with him to Florida. He was a gifted
photographer in black and white and was
often compared to Ansel Adams. I had done
some photography in the Navy on my own,
in other words, it was not an official assign-
ment from the Navy. Then, when I got home


Dr. Luther W. Oehlbeck


I met up with a full-time photographer in my
home town.
"However, right away I learned that he
was just eking out a living with what he was
doing which caused problems in his family,
and so right away I quit thinking about pho-
tography as a career. However, my interest
in photography has never diminished." And
so the question arose: how did you decide
on pathology?
"Well, my father was a doctor, a radiolo-
gist, and so I'd been in a medical family all
my life, therefore the subject was not foreign
to me. I had always been fascinated with a
challenge, doing things on my own and the
more I thought about the area of il, ,I, ,_..,
the more challenging it became to me.
"Yet, I enrolled in the University of Miami
with the goal of becoming a teacher, but
soon learned that the classes were so mun-
dane and held so little challenge that after
the first year I couldn't get to the University
of North Carolina fast enough. I'd always ad-
mired how the university was run and some
of those who were graduates. Thus in due
time, having earned an A. B. in Zoology I en-
tered the UNC Medical School at Chapel Hill
for my first two years of medical study, then
transferred to the University of Virginia Medi-
cal School in 1953 where I graduated."
Dr. Oehlbeck went on to say that he in-
terned at North Carolina Memorial Hospital
in 1954, became a resident in pathology in
1955 and a resident in pathology at Moses
H. Cone Hospital in Greensboro, North Car-


top physician
olina, 1956-1957, under the late Herbert Z.
Lund, former surgical pathologist of Cleve-
land Clinic.
Dr. Oehlbeck is a past president of
Caldwell Memorial Hospital Medical Staff,
the Caldwell County Medical Society and the
North Carolina Society of Pathologists. He
was also a member of the joint commission
of North Carolina Blue Cross-Blue Shield,
and a board member emeritus of the Col-
lege of American Pathologists.
He was instrumental in introducing
the then-new technique of the Pap Smear
throughout North Carolina. Dr. Oehlbeck
had a combined hospital and private pathol-
ogy practice, The Laboratory of Anatomic
and Clinical Pathology, which is still in op-
eration in Lenoir, North Carolina.
In 1972, Major Donald Dr. McNeill, U. S.
Army Medical Corps, joined Dr. Oehlbeck as
a Full Associate and Lab Director following
Dr. Oehlbeck's full retirement in 1984. Sev-
eral of the employees have been with the
laboratory for 30 years or more.
Since moving to Glades County in the late
1980s, Dr. Oehlbeck served on the Glades
County Planning Commission, formerly
known as the Glades County Zoning Com-
mission and the Glades County Board of Ad-
justments.
Dr. Oehlbeck died May 31st at his home
in Muse, following the Memorial Day Memo-
rial Service at Ortona.

West Glades School fifth grader Bryana
Campbell won a $100 Savings Bond and a
pizza party for the fifth grade- not to men-
tion the coolest prize having her very own
drawing chosen as the official sign for the
new Muse Community Park.
MCA President Jimmy Cianfrani and MCA
Secretary and Chairman of the Park and
Building Committee, Diane Cianfrani, took
the time to host the pizza party May 27 in the
WGS cafeteria.
The new park is located behind the Muse
Fire Department, 720 Loblolly Bay Road, and
is about three acres. There is already about
$70,000 worth of playground equipment out
there, including tables, benches and play
structures.


Glades County donated 90 percent of the
land, according to President Cianfrani, as
well as playground equipment, dirt, fencing
and cement. Grant money helped purchase
tables, benches and garbage cans. The play
area is covered with mulch for safety. Resi-
dent Harris Friedman has donated a consid-
erable amount of cash and the Muse Com-
munity Association continues to raise funds
for the park.
MCA began the project about a year-and-
a-half ago and hopes to expand the park to
include a tennis court and baseball diamond.
The park is not officially open as yet.
WGS art teacher Bonnie Marchal said 40-
50 art students participated in the project.
In addition to Bryana's first place drawing,
Kassie Squires earned second place and
Evalena Sabella took third.

Ahoy, kids!
Over 80 children attended the first weekly "Summer Story Time" at Barron
Library on Tuesday, the 15th of June. John Held, area boater, kept their at-
tention as he taught them about boats and sailing. He showed them boats
he built just for this class, and then took them outside to a child's swimming
pool so they could see, with the use of an electric fan, how wind fills the sail
to carry a boat across the water. Each child was given a diagram of the differ-
ent parts of the boat and a coloring sheet. The next program is Tuesday, June
29, at 10:30 a.m., featuring Ms. Ellen Ferguson, her horse Reno, and Farrier,
Jason Queen. The farrier will be demonstrating how to trim horse hooves.
