City sails through first rate hike hearing TRIM


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The first public hearing on in-
creasing water rates to pay for a
new state of the art water treat-
ment plant, held at the regular city
commission meeting August 12,
went quite well for the city.
Mrs. Contreras explained that
she is all for the new plant, but is
upset that customers will have to
pay for something before they get
any benefits from it.
As a long time restaurant owner
in LaBelle, she has major concerns
about the quality of city water in
previous years, saying it is hard on
ice machines and not pleasant for
patrons. Jennifer Grieb agreed.
As a landromat owner, she said
she has to put up signs warning
patrons that the water may dis-
color their clothing.
Mayor Puletti explained that if
the city waited to increase water
rates until after the new plant is on
line, rates would go up 95 percent
immediately.
The board is trying to minimize
the sticker shock to customers by


spreading the increase over sever-
al years. The plan is to begin with
a 15 percent increase in October
and continue to phase in the in-
creases over the following years.
There will be one more public


hearing on the rate increase at the place, LaBelle's water rates will be
next regular commission meeting, among the highest in the area, but
Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. in city residents will have the water qual-
hall. ity they want.
Mayor Puletti acknowledged
that after the rate increases are in See Rate Page 2

own boss . master of your own
ship . managing your life and
time in your own way. Sounds like
the way to go, doesn't it?
And it is, for lots of folks but it's
not for everybody.
There are basic skills to be
learned and mastered, basic at-
titudes and responsibilities to ac-
cept, and sacrifices to be made in
order to live that dream.
Wouldn't it be great if there was
somewhere you could go to find
out if you have what it takes to run
your own successful business be-
fore you take that big step?
A special information meeting


August 16 at the Firehouse Cultural
Center in LaBelle gave folks an op-
portunity to learn about a new pro-
gram Goodwill has partnered with
the Southwest Florida Community
Foundation, SCORE and ACCION
USA to provide. This course gave
people a peek into what entrepre-
neurship really takes.
First and foremost, Goodwill In-
dustries is known for offering ser-
vices to folks with disabilities.
SWFL MicroEnterprise stretch-
es that mission to include people
who might not otherwise fit the
traditional sense of that descrip-
tion. The program is targeting the


unemployed, underemployed and
those with no credit. Even a crimi-
nal history will not disqualify you
for this opportunity.
A "microenterprise" is a busi-
ness with up to five employees.
Director of MicroEnterprise El-
liott Rittenhouse said this program
is different from all others. It will
accept aspiring entrepreneurs, but
also those who may have already
started a new business and recog-
nize they need more management
skills.
If you already have a small
business, you must demonstrate
your commitment to that business


- show what you have done, and
have equity in your business.
The emphasis is on trying to
help businesses succeed by mak-
ing sure their proprietors have the
necessary management skills.
The MicroEnterprise program
sets out 12 modules in ten weeks
and includes feasibility and busi-
ness plans.
After ten weeks, if the candidate
continues to meet expectations,
the next step is to polish up their
business plan and work on a credit
application to ACCION USA for

The city recently was awarded $15.1 mil-
lion $5 million in grant monies from USDA
to build the new reverse osmosis plant. The
city will be on the hook for some $836,000
annual repayment for the loan for 38 years.
The proposed 15 percent rate increase
would bring the average residential user's
monthly fixed demand rate up from $14.71
to $16.92. Commodity charges would add
another $2.71 to the current $12.38 per 1,000
gallons used.
If a resident would like to get an idea of
what their new bill might be, they can call
Kathy at city hall at 675-2872.
Superintendent of Public Works Michael
Boyle said the city's interim measure, a new
nanofiltration unit fitted to the old water
plant, is coming on line shortly.
A performance test will be conducted
August 30 or early September. At that time,
the city's water should be up to par.
However, he warned that hard water has
allowed scale to build up in pipes over the
years and the new soft water will erode that
scale, so issues may come up from time to
time in specific areas until the correct bal-
ance is reached.
Mr. Boyle also said that, even after the
system is on line sporadic problems could
arise due to lime deposits breaking away
from pipes, but they will be temporary.
Anyone who experiences such an issue
should call the city immediately to have their
lines flushed.

evaluation. A new business may qualify for
up to $30,000 in loans. If your business is
already operating and has done well for at
least six months, it could be eligible for up
to $50,000 in loans.
Of course, it's not quite that simple.
The prospective business owner must
convince the committee that he or she can
implement ideas into a practical business
format your ideas, plan and knowledge
must pass muster with experienced and
successful business people in order to re-
ceive a loan.
Prospective participants must be able to
articulate their plan, submit a formal appli-
cation and be interviewed by the program
committee. They are also required to have
at least an eighth grade education in English
and Math.
Mr. Rittenhouse said MicroEnterprise
continues to look for partners and/or corpo-
rate donations to fund the program. Eventu-
ally, he hopes it will become self support-
ing.
The program is funded for a three-year
span initially.
During that time Mr. Rittenhouse hopes
to have 300 graduates. If all goes well, the
multiplier effect, he said, could provide


Hi L WiPTh1 IAAIPIif


some 1,000 more jobs for this area.
Participants will have a facilitator and
coach mentors.
The curriculum includes break out
groups with mentors experienced in small
business. Ideally, Mr. Rittenhouse said,
these coach/mentors will remain sounding
boards for the new entrepreneurs in the fu-
ture.
Classes are currently being held at the
SWF Entrepreneur Center in Fort Myers,
3903 MLK Blvd., past the flea market. The
class has 14 students half men, half wom-
en; half minorities.
Participants are from 24-73 years of age.
Hendry County will host the class this fall.
Hendry County Economic Development
Council Executive Director Roger Harri-
son has become a certified facilitator for
the classes, coaches and mentors are still
needed.
"It's a good program that helps not only
with a business plan but includes the feasi-
bility in our community," Roger said, adding
that it's especially important that local folks
don't have to travel to Lee or Collier coun-
ties for this training.
In LaBelle, the program is scheduled to
begin Sept. 25. It will run through Novem-
ber on Thursday evenings at Edison State
College LaBelle campus. Clewiston classes
have yet to be announced.

Search warrants net five charged with drug offenses


Members of the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office served three search warrants in the
past week that resulted in the confiscation
of narcotics, weapons and U.S. Currency.
On August 3, 2010, Hendry County Dep-
uties conducted a search warrant at the
residence of 4025 East Sunflower Circle in
LaBelle. Located during the search were
several items of drug paraphernalia and
drug packaging material and cocaine. As
result Carlos Ruben Fuster was arrested on
charges of Possession of Cocaine with Intent
to Sell, Possession of Marijuana with Intent
to Sell, and Possession of Drug Parapherna-


Similar names cause confusion
David Bruce Abney Sr. has been getting some strong and undeserved feedback,
caused by an unusual set of circumstances. In our August 12 edition, the Caloosa Belle
printed the arrest of David Shawn Abney, 49. He was charged with possession of co-
caine. Unfortunately, the Hendry County Veterans Service Officer has the same first and
last name and some readers have confused the two men. Please be advised that our
Veterans Service Officer has not been arrested for any such offense. He is serving our
veterans with honor.

GLADES COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 2
Noah F. Sodrel: Our community is very important to me and I would like the oppor
tunity to serve you as your county commissioner. I look forward to a positive growth
in our county that will create jobs and not destroy our environment. I believe that
with the way our economy is, that we should not raise taxes but look for alternatives
within the agencies that can help us through our local and state government. We
should not increase the financial burden on our neighbors and friends by increasing
property taxes or with special taxing districts. I believe my experience from being a
business man will help me serve as your commissioner. If elected, I can not prom
ise that the solutions to the problems facing the county will be easy to find, but I can promise that
every citizen of Glades County will have a voice in their local government. I have the experience
and determination necessary to do the job and if you elect me, it will be my privilege to serve each
and every one of you.
Donna Storter Long: You are the reason I seek RE-election to continue as YOUR advo
cate in county government. I diligently protect your right to information concerning
actions considered and taken by the Commission and resulting effects on property
rights and taxes. My mamzelle@strato.net email "agenda notes" sent after BoCC
meetings provide instant transparency and promote accountability. Honesty, dedica
tion and accountability are ethical principles I bring to Glades County government.
Having developed good relationships within county departments, I welcome your
inquiries for assistance in county-related issues. We cannot resolve all problems, but
be sure, I listen courteously and patiently to your concerns and always research the
matter and promptly respond. As the economic downturn has changed your income/outgo, Glades
County faces greater challenges for fiscal stewardship. We balanced our budget with fewer funds,
minimizing service reductions by maximizing frugal efficiency. We have not raised the millage rate,
and with lower assessments this year, your taxes should be lower. We, like you, will "tighten our
belts" and weather the economic storm. Please vote for me to continue serving you. YOUR money,
environment and children's future are at stake.

by Pat Dobbins
As summer break comes to a close and
children return to school,
parents should make
sure preventative health
measures are included
on their child's back-to-
school checklist.
Success in school
starts with keeping stu-
dents healthy and safe.
Parents should take their Patricia
children to their health- Dobbins
care provider for their an-
nual well-child check-up and to make sure
all vaccinations and medical records are in
order. Healthy eating, adequate physical
activity and good sleep patterns are also
instrumental to success in school.
Parents should speak with their children
about safely traveling to and from school.
This includes planning safe routes, remind-
ing them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing
the street only at designated crosswalks
and showing them how to properly wear a
bicycle helmet if they are biking to school.
Many students spend recess or physical
education time outside. Parents should put
sunscreen on their children in the morn-


ing, or send it to the school office so they
can apply it before playing outdoors to be
protected from sun exposure. It is recom-
mended to use a sunscreen that protects
against both UVA and UVB rays and has a
sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or high-
er.
No child in Florida should have to be
without health care. Insurance improves
children's access to the medications and
treatment they need to control childhood
illnesses and decrease absences from
school.
The state of Florida offers KidCare, a
health insurance program for children
from birth through age 18. Children can
be eligible even if one or both parents are
working. Children covered by Florida Kid-
Care are eligible for comprehensive health
care, including sports physical, doctor
visits, check-ups, immunizations, surgery,
prescriptions, vision and hearing screen-
ings, mental health care, dental check-ups
and hospital stays. Students with access to
these and other preventative health care
services are likely to be healthier and per-
form better in school. For more informa-
tion about KidCare, visit www.FloridaKid-
Care.org or call 1-888-540-5437.

that, for one reason or another, weren't
made very clearly:
"Do not sit in chair without being fully


comings to be seriously considered as a
means of communication. The device is in-
herently of no value to us."
-Western Union internal memo, 1876.
"The wireless music box has no imagin-
able commercial value. Who would pay for
a message sent to nobody in particular?"
--David Sarnoff's associates in response
to his urgings for investment in the radio in
the 1920s.
"The concept is interesting and well-
formed, but in order to earn better than a
'C,' the idea must be feasible." --A Yale Uni-
versity management professor in response
to Fred Smith's paper proposing reliable
overnight delivery service. (Smith went on
to found Federal Express Corp.)
"Who the heck wants to hear actors talk?"
--H.M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927.
"I'm just glad it'll be Clark Gable who's
falling on his face and not Gary Cooper."
--Gary Cooper on his decision not to take the
leading role in "Gone With The Wind."
"A cookie store is a bad idea. Besides, the
market research reports say America likes
crispy cookies, not soft and chewy cookies
like you make."
--Response to Debbi Fields' idea of start-
ing Mrs. Fields' Cookies.
"We don't like their sound, and guitar
music is on the way out."
--Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beat-
les, 1962.
"Heavier-than-air flying machines are im-
possible."
--Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society,
1895.
"If I had thought about it, I wouldn't have
done the experiment. The literature was full
of examples that said you can't do this."
--Spencer Silver, on the work that led to
the unique adhesives for 3-M "Post-It" Note-
pads.
"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey,
we've got this amazing thing, even built with
some of your parts, and what do you think
about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We
just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come
work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then
we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said,
'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got
through college yet.'"
--Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve
Jobs on attempts to get Atari and H-P inter-
ested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal
computer.

Quota permits no longer mailed


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) wants to make
hunters aware that beginning this year,
quota permits for general gun, archery,
muzzleloading gun, family, youth, airboat
and track will not be mailed out to success-
ful applicants as they have been in the past.
Instead, the FWC is allowing hunters, who
are awarded permits in the random draw-
ings, to print the quota permits by going to
www.fl.wildlifelicense.com and choosing
"Limited Entry/Quota then Pickup/Pay for
Awarded Permit." For instructions on how
to do this, go to MyFWC.com/Hunting and


click "Limited Entry Hunts," then "How to
Print Your Limited Entry Hunt Permit Direct-
ly from the Website."
Hunters not having access to the Internet
or a printer can pick up their quota permits
at license agents or county tax collectors' of-
fices. But, be prepared to give to the clerk,
the 4-digit hunt number of the hunt you
were awarded. Hunt numbers are listed on
the quota worksheets. To check drawing
results and permit availability, hunters may
again go to MyFWC.com/Hunting and click
"Limited Entry Hunts."

itive portion is devoted to educational/lead-
ership workshops addressing the interest of
Florida's youth including animal science,
individual and family resources, plant sci-
ence, environmental education, citizenship
and leadership, communication arts as well
as science and technology. In the competi-
tive portion first place senior District win-
ners compete against other county District
winners in events, such as fashion revue,
demonstrations/illustrated talks, and public
speaking. County 4-H Judging teams par-
ticipate with other teams across the state in
various judging contests. Interviews for State
Recognition and Scholarships are also con-
ducted during this event.

na Davis, Zena Gatch, Kelsie Hansen, Jaydee
Hull, Wolfgang Lynn, Andy McAvoy, Destiny
Murphy, Harry Plamondon, Mavis Plamon-
don, Matthew Ruch, Cody Suchomski, Sara
Sutterfield, Anthony Timmons and Ashley
White. Ashley, Brianna, Destiny, Jaydee, Kel-
sie, Mavis and Sara were contestants in the

division with Jaydee modeling her short set
in the Informal/School Wear category. Mavis
modeled her khaki coveralls accented with
a camouflage long sleeve shirt in the Active
Sports Wear category. Jaydee and Mavis
captured first place in their respective cat-
egories. Ashley, Brianna, Destiny, Kelsie and
Sara participated in the selection division.
Destiny and Brianna both modeled their gar-
ments in the Dress for Work category. Des-
tiny modeled scrubs accented with a stetho-
scope and clipboard. Brianna dressed as a
horse trainer in her cowgirl attire with chaps.
Destiny was awarded second place. Ashley
selected jeans and a colorful shirt to model
in the School/Informal Wear category. Kelsie
modeled in the Active Sports Wear category
with her shirt and short set ready for a day
on the water, either the beach or the lake.
Kelsie achieved first place in her category.
Sara modeled an elegant knee length dress
in the Special Occasion category. Anthony,
Andy and Harry participated as a team Hor-
ticulture Judging, taking third place. Cody,
Wolfgang and Zena sang "Hallelujah" in the
Share-the-Fun division placing fifth. Cody
and Wolfgang also played the guitar. Mat-
thew took first place with his demonstration
titled "The Power of the Pitch" in the Con-
sumer Education and Money Management

Drunk driving,


over the limit,


under arrest

The problem of impaired-driving is a seri-
ous one. While America witnessed a decline
in the number of impaired-driving fatalities
from 2007-2008, the numbers are still too
high. That's why Hendry County Sheriff's
Office announces it will be joining law en-
forcement agencies throughout the country
in support of an intensive crackdown on im-
paired driving this August 20-September 6,
Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest.
In 2008 alone, nearly 12,000 people died
in crashes in which a driver or motorcycle
rider was at or above the legal limit, accord-
ing to the latest statistics from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The
age group with the highest percentage of
alcohol impaired drivers in fatal crashes is
young people age 21-24.
"All too often, innocent, law-abiding
people suffer the tragic consequences and
the loss of loved ones. We're intensifying en-
forcement during the crackdown. We'll be
especially vigilant during high-risk nighttime
hours when impaired drivers are most likely
to be on our roads," said Hendry County
Sheriff Steve Whidden.
In every State as well as the District of
Columbia it is illegal to drive with a blood
alcohol concentrations (BAC) of .08. Ap-
proximately 10,000 law enforcement agen-
cies will participate in this year's mid-August
through Labor Day crackdown.
Violators often face jail time, loss of their
driver licenses, or being sentenced to use ig-
nition interlocks. Other financial hits include
increased insurance rates, attorney fees,
court costs, lost time at work, and the poten-
tial loss of job or job prospects.
"Driving drunk is simply not worth the
consequences. So don't take the chance.
Remember, if you are over the limit, you're
under arrest," said Sheriff Whidden.

Witches Brew


by Pudge Lehman
Remove sticky price tags and stickers from glass
by spraying with WD 40.
To make more room on your plate for syrup
or eggs just pour your pancake batter in an oval shape
instead of round. Fits better on a square griddle too.
If your crock pot is hard to clean, line it with an oven bag be-
fore putting in the ingredients. When cooking a roast in the crock
pot put a half can of cola and some dry onion soup mix in. Very
tender.
Have a small family? Bake a two layer cake and cool and freeze
one layer. Cut the other in half and frost and stack as you would for
a frosted two layer cake.
