Sheriff's Office looking forward to move


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Since 1987 the Hendry County Sheriff's Of-
fice has been housed in its present location
on Bridge Street. However, final details on an
interlocal agreement that will move most of
the sheriff's personnel from the Bridge Street
facility are pending. The office will relocate to
a 6,000 square foot building located on 2.15


acres at 9045 SE Raintree Blvd., southeast of
LaBelle Middle School. Formerly a CHL real es-
tate office, it was built in 2006. With the steep
decline in construction, CHL no longer needs
the office space and offered it to the CDD.
An interlocal agreement between the coun-
ty and Port LaBelle CDD is being finetuned
by County Attorney Mark Lapp to finalize the
transaction.
PLCDD Executive Director Lester Baird said

200 years


of living
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Living to be 100 years of age is surely a rar-
ity, but having two centenarians residing at the
same facility has got to be something special
Two residents of Oakbrook of LaBelle
turned 100 this past week, within just a day of
each other. Yet another resident turned 100 last
September.
Faye Warren was born July 10, 1910, and
Sybil Bennett is one day her junior born July
11, 1910.

City gets breathing room on rate hike


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Water rates will have to increase dramati-
cally to build the new state-of-the-art water
treatment plant, but city water customers have
gained a little breathing room. Last month city
commissioners made the difficult decision to
increase water rates incrementally over the
next three years. However, the city now finds it
has five or six years to get to that level instead
of just three.


At this time, LaBelle residential water cus-
tomers' base payment is about $26.11. That
figure will have to be raised to $51 per month
in order to cover monthly payments to Rural
Utilities Service (RUS). Commissioners decid-
ed that these incremental increases should not
exceed 15 percent.
A motion made by Commissioner Dave
Lyons and seconded by Commissioner Greg
Bone, will allow the city to advertise for pub-
lic hearings in August and September on these


new increases, which would begin with the
October billing.
The new plant will cost $15.3 million. RUS
will provide $5 million in grants and a $10.1
million low interest loan to build the plant,
which will correct LaBelle's ongoing water
color issues and provide capacity for modest
growth.
RUS requires that the net income collected

Years
Continued From Page 1
Mrs. Warren came to Oakbrook from
Alva where she lived with her step-daughter
and her husband. Elaine and Duane Mansell
of Alva cared for Mrs. Warren for about ten
years. A very young-looking centenarian,
Mrs. Warren is not capable of very much
communication, but most certainly has a
lifetime of great stories in her.
Married three times, she had one son,
who died very young and has three neph-
ews all across the country, in addition to the
Mansells.
Raised on a dairy farm in Nebraska with
two brothers, her mother died when she
was young.
Mrs. Warren was always in good health,
Elaine said, until just after Christmas last
year. A bout with pneumonia sent her to
the hospital, then to Oakbrook for addi-
tional care.
Mrs. Warren had married Elaine's father
in 1968. She is a quiet woman, Elaine com-
mented, so they don't know very much
about her step-mother. Still they have found
some intriguing pieces of her past. They
found an MGM studio pass among her be-
longings, along with stacks of notes from
major stars including Spencer Tracy and a
photo of Mrs. Warren dressed in a cigarette
girl outfit. Did she do walk ons or have a few
bit parts? The only information they could
get from Mrs. Warren about her job at the
studio was that she and her coworkers "Did


whatever they told us to do."
Apparently, she had an adventurous
streak she never lost. At the age of 95 she
went on a four-wheeler ride with Duane.
The other half of this birthday duo, is
talkative and sharp as a tack. Mrs. Bennett
- Dr. Bennett has been at Oakbrook for
about a year. This grand Southern lady was
born in Jasper, Fl., near Live Oak, she came
from a long line of doctors. She can count
seven of them in her family, including her
father, who became a doctor in 1900.
Mrs. Bennett attended Florida Southern
Women's College, now Florida State Uni-
versity, and took her first medical classes at
Chapel Hill in North Carolina before going
on to the University of Maryland where she
graduated with her MD in 1942. She doesn't
remember when she retired, but recalls that
after years of seeing to her patients, she had
time to enjoy favorite activities like sewing
and the garden club.
She started her medical training in 1938
and, in all her years of medical school, said
she was one of just four women. "I wish
more women would go to medical school,"
Mrs. Bennett commented.
"I'm not sure if I decided to become a
doctor, or if my family decided for me," she
muses. Although as a small child she recalls
"picking up daddy's medical bag and walk-
ing around with it," declaring "I'm a doc-
tor."
She married Dr. Van Boring Bennett;
but said she made sure she got her MD be-
fore her marriage. She wanted her maiden
name when she got the "MD" so her par-
ents would get credit for putting her through
medical school.
Of course, the war was on at that time

and her husband went into the Army from
Boston. He served in the South Pacific.
At 100 she remains a central figure in her
family and is the main source of the family
history.
She learned to drive on a Model T. She
remembers going on calls out of town with
all the patients' family, dogs, cats etc. out-
side waiting for news. She said she misses
the contact she had with her patients and
their families in Jasper she knew so many
of her patients or at least who they were.
Mrs. Bennett recalls going out to Cali-
fornia by train to see her then-fiance. She
boarded the LOP&G Live Oak, Perry and
Gulf known locally as the "Loping Go-
pher." It was quite a trip for a "country girl,"
across the whole country all alone.
About the only regret Mrs. Bennett said
she has is having to burn old records. She
said that, by law, they had to burn records
not called for after a certain time. She wish-
es some of those records could be accessed
now. Like those documenting how she
helped her father treat a black man suffer-
ing with very serious burns on his back. He
was far out in the woods in North Florida.
There was no hospital, so she and her father
set up a make shift "hospital" in the woods
where they performed a "pinch graft" op-
eration, taking skin from the man's legs to
use on his back.
Mrs. Bennett's niece, Martha Joe Gross,
lives in Immokalee. She is the one who
brought her to Oakbrook when she left Jas-
per,
This past weekend Ms. Bennett headed
off to Valdosta, where she still has a house,
to visit with family from all over. She had
another family reunion the previous week-

on water bills be sufficient to cover payments
on its loan. The city will have 38 years, with a
3.2 interest rate, to repay the loan.

Taxable value down
In his first appearance before the board
as city Finance Director, Ron Zimmerly re-
layed the bad news that the city's certified
taxable value has decreased again this year.
Last year it declined 8.5 percent and this year
it's down a whopping 17 percent, he told the
board. The city's certified taxable value now
stands at $201 million, which will translate
into a $131,000 reduction in incoming tax-
es.
Mayor Paul Puletti suggested the city can
hold the line on the budget by holding all
road crews to a strict 40-hour week. He said
that, through June 21, overtime cost the city
$106,000. Staggering shifts could help en-
sure emergencies will be covered.
Public hearings on the budget will be
held Sept. 9 and Sept. 17. Mr. Zimmerly told
the board the county's certified taxable val-
ue also declined some 14-15 percent.

Mosquito-borne illness advisory


Local August primary


candidate list short


There has been increased activity of
mosquito-borne illnesses in areas of Glades
County. Several horses have tested positive
for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus.
Talk to your veterinarian about vaccinating
your horses to help protect them. The risk of
transmission to humans has increased.
The Glades County Health Department
will continue surveillance. Preventative
measures:
Wear long sleeves and long pants
when weather permits.
Have secure, intact screens on win-
dows and doors to keep mosquitoes out.
Protect yourself and your family from
mosquitoes by using the 5 D's:
Dusk and Dawn -That's when mos-
quitoes are out and looking for the next
bite! Avoid being outdoors just before the
sun comes up and just before the sun goes
down.
Dress -Try to wear light clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET -Use insect repellents containing
DEET, but talk to your healthcare provider
before you use this product on children.
Drainage -Get rid of any standing wa-
ter where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
Eliminate breeding sites.
Getting rid of mosquito breeding sites:
Clean out the gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds so water can drain.
Turn over/remove empty pots, buckets.
Pick up all beverage containers and
cups after use.


Check tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
Replace water in birdbaths or other pet/
animal feeding dishes at least once a week.
At least once a week, change the water
in plant trays or hanging plants.
Remove plant growth or obstructions
in drainage ditches that may prevent the
flow of water.
From the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC):
EEE is caused by a virus spread by in-
fected mosquitoes. It is transmitted through
the bite of an infected mosquito, not directly
from person to person. It takes 4 to 10 days
after the bite of an infected mosquito to de-
velop symptoms of EEE.
Severe cases can begin with the sudden
onset of headache, high fever, chills and
vomiting. The illness may then progress into
disorientation, seizures and coma. Approxi-
mately a third of patients who develop EEE
die, and many survivors have mild to severe
brain damage.
There is no vaccine or preventive drug or
specific treatment for EEE. Antibiotics are
not effective. Severe illnesses are treated by
supportive therapy like hospitalization, re-
spiratory support and IV fluids. Consult your
healthcare provider for proper diagnosis.

Cracking down on illegal
immigration
Should individuals be charged with a
state misdemeanor crime for not carrying
registration documents required by federal
law?
According to Senate Bill 1070, found at
www.azleg.gov, the Arizona State Legislature
website, one of the following is required to
avoid being arrested for a misdemeanor.
(a) a valid Arizona driver license;
(b) a valid Arizona non-operating identi-
fication license;
(c) a valid tribal enrollment card or other
tribal identification; or
(d) any valid federal, state, or local gov-
ernment-issued identification, if the issuer
requires proof of legal presence hi the Unit-
ed States as a condition of issuance.
Under SB 1070, police may arrest an in-
dividual if there is probable cause that the
individual is a foreigner not in possession of
required registration documents.
What counts as reasonable suspicion
that an individual is undocumented? Should
an individual be arrested based merely on
suspicion?
A week after the new immigration law
passed on April 23, Governor Brewer signed


House Bill 2162, which specifies that "pros-
ecutors would not investigate complaints
based on race, color or national origin."
Before this law was amended, was Arizo-
na planning on investigating based on race,
color or national origin? Why wasn't this in
the original form of the law?
Will this amendment truly stop officers
from identifying people by race and looking
for minor infractions as an excuse to inves-
tigate them?
Will this law really help discourage illegal
immigration?
Before falling back on our traditional fail-
safe of racial profiling, we should attack the
root of the illegal immigration problem, the
businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
Businesses hire illegal immigrants for
cheap labor. Businesses hire illegal immi-
grants to exploit workers that are not pro-
tected by our constitution.
To cut down significantly on illegal immi-
gration, we need to crack down significantly
on businesses who hire illegal immigrants.
These individuals come to work in the US
because businesses practically invite them.
Undocumented workers can get imme-
diate employment to support themselves,
and their families, while dodging red tape
and long waiting lines.Does this justify one's
illegal immigration? No. This only explains
their motivation and the temptation to work
without documentation or with false docu-
mentation.
After the crack down, who will work the
fields for below poverty rates?
Who will spend the day working the field,
without any American rights, instead of go-
ing to college or vocational school?
Who will take low pay and not demand
for higher pay or rights under the constitu-

Ticks They can be in



your back yard


by Pat Dobbins
It's summertime! Gardening, camping,
hiking or just playing outdoors -These are
all great summer activities, but don't forget
about the "creepy-crawly" ticks that may be
in the same environment.
There are several things
you can do to help prevent
tick bites and reduce your
risk of tick-borne disease.
After being in wooded
areas, grassy areas, or even
after a summer picnic, you
should check your scalp
and hair, behind the ears, Patricia
the neck and under the Dobbins
arms.
Usually ticks try to find a nice warm spot
to hide and latch onto to your skin, but some-
times they can choose the strangest places,
so check your whole body thoroughly.
Some ticks are small enough to crawl
into shoes or through socks, so when you
are hiking or taking a stroll through wooded
areas, tuck your pants legs into your socks
so that they cannot crawl up the inside of
your pants.
Also, it's a good idea to wear light-colored
clothing, because it will help you spot any
ticks that may be crawling around looking
for a place to bite! Before you go into your
home, check your clothing and your pets for
ticks. Ticks may be carried into the house
on clothing and pets and any ticks that are
found should be removed immediately.

gov/features/stopticks/)
For added protection, you can also use
an insect repellent with DEET, but please al-
ways follow product instructions!
Repellents containing 20 percent or more
DEET can be applied to the skin and can pro-

vide some protection for several hours. Talk
to your healthcare provider before applying
any insect repellents on young children.
Some of the more common diseases that
you can get from a tick bite include: Lyme
disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and
Tularemia.
Typically, Lyme disease is marked by a red
bump at the site of the tick bite, surrounded
by an expanding, bulls-eye patterned rash.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever symptoms
include red dots on the ankles and wrists.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever can be trans-
mitted by the American dog tick, while Lyme
disease can be carried by the black-legged
tick.
Remove an attached tick as soon as you
notice it. Watch for signs of illness such as
rash or fever, and see a health care provider
if these develop.
Remember that it can take up to 30 days
before you have symptoms of a tick related
disease. Your risk of acquiring a tick-borne
illness depends on many factors, including
where you live, what type of tick bit you and
how long the tick was attached. If you be-
come ill after a tick bite, see your health care
provider.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC), in Florida, there
were 554 cases of Lyme disease reported
from 1999 through 2008, which is an aver-
age 55 cases per year. Of these, 30 percent
were acquired in Florida while 70 percent
were acquired while the person was travel-
ing in another state or country.
Please keep this in mind as you go on
your summer vacations to other parts of the
country. The number of cases usually occurs
during the summer months and peak in July,
though cases are typically reported in Florida
year-round.

Remember our veterans .


at July 24 ceremony


by Ray 'Bouncer' Leventhal
When: 24 July 2010
Where: 9 a.m. Veteran's Memorial Park
11 a.m. American Legion Post 130
For the third consecutive year, the City
of LaBelle, its citizens and those of the sur-
rounding areas will come together to cel-
ebrate that which sets the United States of
America apart from most other nations:
Freedom.
It is with great sadness that the commu-
nity of LaBelle remembers the passing of
two of its sons within a week's time of each
other. In June 2008 SSGT Chris Strickland
and CWO Robert Hammett were killed in
the line of duty. Both were graduates of La
Belle High School. Both left families behind.
Both are true American Heroes.
It was in their honor that the Fallen He-
roes Benefit began. Commemorative bricks
for these heroes were among the first three
placed in the park.
The third was in honor of a local Medal
of Honor recipient, Spc4 Nicholas Cutinha.
American Legion Post 130 is the proud cus-
todian of this medal, which is on display at
their Post.
While the monetary beneficiary of the
Fallen Heroes Benefit is LaBelle's beautiful
but not-yet-complete Veteran's Memorial
Park, the spirit of freedom is the rallying call
- the price of freedom is the mantra.
LaBelle continues to show its true colors
and without a doubt they are the Red, White
and Blue of our American Flag.
This community regularly sets aside any

remember the price paid for the freedoms
we now enjoy.
As has been said many times about those
who wear the uniform of our armed forces,
they have written a check payable to the citi-
zens of the United States of America for the
amount up to, and including, their lives.
For this, we citizens stand humbled; we
are thankful and should be reminded regu-

ily changing the disinfection process for
the City's potable (drinking water) water
supply. From Monday, July 19, through
Wednesday August 4, The City will disin-
fect the water with free chlorine rather than
combined chlorine/ammonia (chloram-
ines). This conversion to chlorine (which is
a stronger disinfectant) from chloramines

lows The City of LaBelle to perform a water
distribution system purge as recommend
by the Department of Environmental Pro-
tection for water utilities using chloramines
as their primary disinfectant. It will start at

Customers on kidney dialysis who use
a proportioning machine to prepare di-
alysis at home are advised to contact their
equipment supplier or physician and take
any appropriate steps to accommodate the

the proper filtering devices if needed.

aquatic species are advised to contact the
local pet store to ensure proper pretreat-
ment of the water before adding or chang-
ing the water in the tank to avoid any prob-
lems associated with chlorine.
Customers are asked to call City Hall
863-675-2872 with any questions concern-
ing this change in disinfectants.

Sheriff
Continued From Page 1
erty to build an annex for the sheriff's office.
However, this building will provide more
space than the original property would have
allowed. Funding from a special assess-
ment of Port LaBelle residents in trust for a
sheriff's office annex covered the $575,000
expense. The facility will fulfill Port LaBelle
CDD's commitment to provide police ser-
vices to its residents.
County Administrator Judi Kennington
Korf said she believes the timing was right
and the agreement is a good effort. Accord-
ing to the agreement, the building may only
be used for law enforcement purposes.
She added that the agreement will allow
Port LaBelle CDD to fulfill its obligation to its
residents and will benefit the sheriff's office
by effectively doubling its available space.
Overcrowding has been an issue at the cur-
rent facility for some time.
The agreement will take that parcel off
the tax roles. In 2009, CHL paid $13,909.42
in taxes on that property. However, Ms.
Kennington Korf said she feels this is only a
slight negative effect and it's still a win-win
situation.
According to Chief Deputy Kevin Nelson,
the building will require very little renova-
tion to accommodate the sheriff's office. It
has two conference rooms and office spac-
es. The biggest renovation will be sealing
the lobby off from the core of the building.


Most sheriff's office functions will be lo-
cated at the Port LaBelle site. Only adminis-
tration, the jail and dispatch will remain at
the Bridge Street location.
Road Patrol, Narcotics, Investigations,
Internal Affairs, Victims Advocate, Crime
Scene Investigation and training will all be
relocated to the Port LaBelle annex.
Chief Deputy Kevin Nelson said the sher-
iff's standard $3,500 budget for annual re-
pairs should be adequate for the facility. He
welcomes the moving, saying that space is
at a premium in the current office. The Fi-
nance Department has even been used to
house two uniformed officers.
The new property is about double what
Port LaBelle had originally set aside for the
sheriff's office, so there is plenty of space to
expand as necessary.
The county will reclaim the old A frame
on Bridge Street that has been home to
Criminal Investigations and other sheriff's
office departments. No decision has been
made on what it will do with that property.
According to the county's new Grants Di-
rector Janet Papinaw, the county may apply
to FEMA for grant funding to build a new
Clewiston Sub-Office. The county commis-
sioners are to vote on an architectural ser-
vices proposal July 27.
If the application is approved, Hendry
County would be eligible to receive 90 per-
cent of the project cost, including demoli-
tion, engineering, design, permits, construc-
tion and reimbursement for rent paid at the
county office in Clewiston after the insur-
ance stopped.

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 humidity for another four
months or you can say there are only 13
weeks left until cool weather arrives. I prefer
the latter because next week, there will be
only 15 weeks left," he explains.

The staff enjoyed their four-day stay at
the beautiful Sheraton Sand Key Resort and
brought back first-hand information about
the legislature and updated FFCC rules, in-
surance and liability, VPK in family child
care, contracts and policies and more.
The purpose of a conference like this is
to learn and share this information with the
community.
Mary Ann Marroquin said, "It was an
honor to have received a scholarship in the
FCCERS Rating Scale because not only does
the staff and center know that we are doing
a job with the children's care, but it lets the
community know as well, and we as provid-
ers can keep our children in our own com-
munity safe and healthy, while parents go to
work because they grow up to be educated
and important for our community."
She has enjoyed being a home provider
for almost 16 years and enjoyed all the chil-
dren that have been in her care about 179
in all. Some of them are now in high school
and many of them have maintained a place
on the A or B honor roll year after year. "This
makes me feel good, to have made a differ-
ence in the children's life at a very young
age," she said.
There are only 36 home cares accredited
in the whole state of Florida, according to the
Department of Children & Families. "I wish
that more centers and home day cares could
get accredited so that together we could
show off the difference to the community in
providing a more safe/healthy environment
for our children."

Marroquin's Learning Center has earned
a four-day all expense paid scholarship to
attend the 18th annual Florida Family Child
Care Home Association (FFCCHA) confer-
ence in Clearwater Beach for the Center staff.
Along with the staff, Christina Marroquin,
employee at Kids City Day Care, attended
this conference June 24-27. The scholarship
was awarded through a passing score on
the Family Child Care Environmental Rating
Scale FCCERS). The scale became known to
all centers and providers in February 2009.
The leadership of the Early Learning
Coalition of Southwest Florida decided to
upgrade the way monitoring was done at
the school readiness facilities by using the
Environmental Rating Scale. The scales,
which are statistically valid and reliable, are
good objective indicators of early learning
environments, with a rating scale of 1-7 (1
= inadequate and 7- excellent). The stan-
dards included: facility accreditation, proper
sanitary/procedures use, safety and health,
cultural sensitivity, positive staff, children in-
teraction, well trained staff, varied toys, well
planned activities, child ratio, good record
keeping. All centers, accredited or not, were
monitored. All facilities suffer when there
are negative stories about child care facili-
ties and equally all gain when the stories are
positive. Through the use of the Environ-
mental Rating Scales, facilities will increas-
ingly become safe, healthy and rich learning
environments. Out of all the home centers
in Southwest, there are only 13 that made a
passing score. Hendry County had only two:
Marroquins and Karen Thompson; Collier
County had one and Lee County ten; there
were none in Glades. Out of those 13, there
were only six granted a conference scholar-
ship.

Horse owners urged to get animals vaccinated due to EEE


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is urging horse owners to get their
animals vaccinated following an upsurge in
the number of Eastern Equine Encephalitis
cases. So far this year 16 confirmed cases
of EEE in horses seven on June 23, from
counties scattered throughout the state.
"Most of the cases have been in the cen-
tral and north central part of the state which
is normal," Bronson said. "But we are also
seeing increased EEE and West Nile Virus
activity in sentinel chickens in the southern
part of the state, including Martin County
which has not had EEE detected in 30 years.
In addition, there has been a confirmed
case of EEE in a horse in both Collier and
Okeechobee counties."
EEE is a viral disease that affects the cen-
tral nervous system and is transmitted to



Vote by



mail

Has an Election Day ever slipped up on
you? Did you ever have a family problem
or something at work that kept you from
getting to the polls before they closed at 7
o'clock? Are you usually in too much of a
hurry when you go downtown to take ad-
vantage of Early Voting in person at the Elec-
tions Office in either LaBelle or Clewiston?
Signing up for Vote By Mail can be the so-
lution to problems that may have kept you
from voting in the past.
Hendry County Democratic Chairman
Joe Thomas said, "Vote By Mail is really
the old absentee ballot made easy. Voters
no longer have to swear they will be out
of the county or sick in bed in order to get
an absentee ballot. All the voter has to do
is request a ballot from the Elections Office
no later than six days before the election."
Thomas added that Hendry County Super-
visor of Elections Lucretia Perkins says the
request can be for just the current election
or for every election through the next Gen-
eral Election.
Hendry County voters can check their
current registration status online. Thomas
said the w eb link is hili 1. 1 -i ii ... I. -
tions.myflorida.com/. This website can also
take the voter to another site to request an
early ballot. Voters can also check their sta-
tus in person by going to the Elections Of-
fice at either the Courthouse in LaBelle or
the Clewiston Satellite Elections Office at
100 East El Paso Avenue with photo identifi-
cation and proof of residence address.
Pick up your telephone if you don't have
a computer or have trouble getting to the
Elections Offices during normal business
hours.
Then, call 863-675-5230 if you live in La-
Belle or 863-983-1592 if you live in Clewis-
ton; the Elections Office will take your in-
formation over the phone and make certain
your ballot is mailed to you in plenty of time
for it to be returned by 7 o'clock on Election
Day.

Little man in

the corn?
Did you know that American
-a Indian legend says that a little
man lives inside each kernel
of popcorn? When you heat up
his house, he gets so mad he
blows up and that is why pop-
corn pops! Did you know that
you can sprout corn kernels in
a shallow pan on a wet piece of
paper towel covered with plas-
tic wrap?
The kids that attended "Story
Time" at Barron Library this
past week learned these facts
and more. To complete the
theme of Popcorn and Apples,
they also listened to a story
about an apple orchard and
harvest. Following the story
they went outside to prepare
their corn kernels for sprouting
and to complete a craft project,
which turned into an apple or-
chard poster.
Don't miss next week's lesson
about Wild Animals. Patrick
Gallagher will be presenting
the lesson and craft project
Tuesday, July 20, at 10:30 a.m.

history
This bare cypress out-

was likely a combina-

quarters for domestic

There is an antique wa-

what was once a bath-
room there.
