ber. Mr. Perry received 335 votes while
challengers Laura G. Smith got 123 and

HENDRY COUNTY -The nonprofit Lake
Okeechobee Regional Initiative (LORI) is
assisting Hendry County's efforts to boost
tourism by contributing to the salary for a
marketing and public relations director for
the Hendry County Tourist Development
Council (TDC) and Economic Development
Council (EDC).
With a down economy, the county is
looking for innovative ways to market its rich
outdoor resources and attract visitors who
can help the local economy. Hendry County
has a vast untapped market in eco-tourism
and agri-tourism and hopes to greatly ex-
pand its number of fishing and birding visi-
tors each year.
LORI, a program of the nonprofit Collins
Center for Public Policy Inc., is working to
build economies and communities along
the southern rim of Lake Okeechobee. Phil


Bacon, the Collins Center vice president in
charge of the LORI initiative, said this posi-
tion is critical to Hendry County reaching its
potential as a tourist destination.
"This position is extremely important as
a catalyst for bringing the region into focus
as a tourist destination," Bacon said. "This
person will help us brand the region."
With the eastern portion of the county
situated on scenic Lake Okeechobee, and
the north central and western portions bor-
dering the Caloosahatchee River, the county
is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Lake
Okeechobee is visited by 6 million people a
year, and 14 million residents live within a
two-hour drive of the county.
The marketing and public relations direc-
tor will work to attract a larger percentage
of these visitors and residents for overnight
visits and events. In addition, the director


will capitalize on the connection between
tourism and economic development.
"You just can't deny the connection
between tourism and economic develop-
ment," said Roger Harrison, president and
CEO of the Hendry County EDC. "Tourists
bring money to our community bolstering
jobs in the hospitality and retail industry. A
tourist's dollar is turned over up to six times
in the local economy with little to no strain
on public services."
Additionally, Harrison said, it's a great way
to market Hendry County for new business.
"People see what we've got going here, and
want to turn their visit into a lifetime stay.
This commitment from LORI shows that
we're on the right track. Everyone is excited
about the immediate potential this change
will bring."

Troupe offers praise through dance, arts


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
Three young LaBelle women, members
of a Christian praise group called Judah
Praize, take that exhortation very seriously.
Patricia Deas is the heart and soul behind
the group. Her pastor, Alonzo McKenzie of
New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, in-
spired the group when he asked members
of his church to think about how they use
their talents for the Lord. It made Patricia
wonder what she could share.
Dance, she knew, was her gift. Patri-
cia doesn't remember a time when dance
wasn't a big part of her life. Growing up in
New York City, her uncle was a professional
dancer. She recalls her awe as she watched
him on stage in a troupe performing an Af-
rican Boot Dance. Her mother was also al-
ways dancing, though not professionally.
Patricia herself studied tap, ballet and
modern dance as a child in NYC at the Mary
Bruce Dance Studio, beginning at five years
of age. She then attended the Jose Feliciano


Junior High School for the Performing Arts,
but admits she did little with her gifts after
that.
This would be her way of sharing a

dance troupe that praised her Lord.
Julisa Mobley and Sharoddra Gregory
make up the other two-thirds of Judah
Praize. They dance and also raise their voic-
es in song. Patricia is the group coordina-
tor, dance choreographer and CEO of her
company called Heaven Bound Entertain-
ment LLC an extension of her vision which
coordinates Christian entertainers with ven-
ues for their talents throughout Southwest
Florida.
Mydajah Williams is Chief Operations
Officer and manager of the company.
Heaven Bound Entertainment isn't about
making money, Patricia cautions, it's about
sharing God's word in a very special way.
When the End of the Year Youth Revival
came up at church, she got the idea for the
dance troupe. At that time they were do-
ing mime using masks, as they did at the
LaBelle Black Heritage Festival. They have
since given up the masks in favor of face
paint. Patricia calls it "Expression Dance,"
since it allows the audience to see their
faces and expressions.
Patricia said that Judah Praize was
"blessed" to perform at the LaBelle Black
Heritage Festival in May. They also took
second place at the Clewiston Brown Sugar
Festival.
Patricia calls it their gift their "anoint-
ing" and believes they have been so suc-
cessful because it flows through them to the
audience.
You can see their performance at City
Community Church in Fort Myers, which
took a first place. To to on You Tube and

Patricia was interviewed Saturday, Au-
gust 7, 11-1 on Gospel Jam Radio Show
89.5 FM www.praisefm.com.

of Lake Okeechobee, a project expected to
help the economies of communities across
the entire region. LORI has also:
Helped develop a Web site and video as
part of a marketing plan to boost tourism.
Saved a bus line that ferries workers be-
tween Clewiston and Belle Glade.
Begun plans to build a community gar-
den in one of the poorest sections of Belle
Glade.

On August 14 at New Bethel Missionary
Baptist Church, Heaven Bound Entertain-
ment put on its first ever Back 2 School Gos-
pel Youth Jam. Mistress of Ceremony was
Lashay Ross. Local entertainers included
Jonathan Lopez (The Psalmist) of Christ
Central, a Gospel rapper, and incredible
dancer Esophia Higgins.
Patricia came to LaBelle in 1993 and
graduated in the Class of 1994. It was pure
culture shock, she recalls, but says she has
learned to love it here.
Her son, Dorian Deas, graduated from
LHS in 2008, and is currently at Webber
College studying sports management and
playing football.
A medical assistant in Bonita Springs by
day, Patricia is also a part time paramedical
- an independent contractor for a life insur-
ance company.
As the mother of a college student and
caretaker for her elderly grandmother, you
might wonder how Patricia manages to do
so much in a day.
"Everything I do is a passion," Patricia
said, "So I never slow down or get tired of it.
I work for my family," Patricia said, "and am
blessed to do what God told me to do."
Thus far, her entertainment endeavor
has indeed been blessed as well. She said
she is completely booked for August and is
looking forward to continuing after that.
"I thank God for these young ladies My-
dajah, Julisa and Sharoddra. They were re-
ceptive of the vision and show dedication to
it," Patricia commented.
Julisa sang in school chorus. She gradu-
ated from LHS in 2009 and is at ECC study-
ing business management. She hopes to
own a restaurant, beauty salon and clothing


store. Julisa is still awed by what happened
at the SWF Best Gospel Showcase. "The
Spirit came over us and the audience," she
said. "It's not about our dancing." It's about
that special connection with the Lord.
Julisa said singing is her strongest point.
She can sing any day, but dance takes prac-
tice more time and added, "I'll do this as
long as God wants me to."
Sharoddra Gregory also feels she's stron-
ger in singing. "I like to minister to people's
hearts and come together as one," she said,
"we talk with the audience after a perfor-
mance and it's inspiring. We work with God
to get closer." Sharoddra is also a 2009 LHS
graduate and a student at ECC. She is work-
ing toward a degree in physical therapy.
Patricia would like to get Julisa and Shar-
oddrah recorded on a demo CD and gather
a variety of artists to send throughout the


area and spread God's word. In the end,
though, she said, "It's what God wants that
counts."
She plans to keep her troupe strictly as a
ministry for God. She doesn't want money
to be the base of her troupe. It was never
about money, she said. They do accept do-
nations from those who feel led to provide
them, however, to help defray travel ex-
penses.
Other entertainment groups are wel-
come in Heaven Bound. Patricia said she
would like to add musicians and songwrit-
ers, but she sees no more additions to the
trio.
Patricia has a special feeling about Ju-
lisa, Sharoddrah and Judah Praize and its
ministry. "Anybody can do the steps," she
said, "but the anointing flows through us to
the audience and gets everyone involved."

HCSO: Back to School means taking steps to keep kids safe


"Summer vacation is over and it's time
to start thinking about getting back to the
books. With the 2010-2011 school year
about to begin, I and members of the Hen-
dry County Sheriff's Office are concerned
about the safety of your children," said Hen-
dry County Sheriff Steve Whidden.
For children
Kids, take the time to read these tips and
see how safety smart you are.
Work out a safe route to school with your
parents. Choose the quickest way with the
fewest street crossings and include intersec-
tions with crossing guards. Stay away from
parks, vacant lots, fields and other places


where there aren't many people around.
Walk to and from school with a friend,
neighbor, brother or sister.
Be sure you know your home phone
number and address, the numbers of your
parents at work and of another trusted adult
and also be sure how to use 911 for emer-
gencies.
Never talk to or accept rides or gifts from
people you don't know.
If you bike or skateboard to school, wear
a helmet. And, don't forget to lock up your
bike wherever you leave it.
If you're home alone after school, check
in with a parent or neighbor as soon as you


Arrest made in 2007 home invasion


Hendry County investigators have made
an arrest in a 2007 home invasion case.
Enrique Salas, 24, was arrested August 19
and charged on a warrant with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon no intent to
kill, battery touch or strike, burglary of a
dwelling, structure or conveyance armed,
larceny theft $300-$5,000 and robbery with
a firearm.
According to sheriff's reports, Manuel
Refugio-Martin Salgado, then 39, closed
the Azteca bar in January 2007, loaded up
several other employees in a van and drove
south on SR 29 to his home. A white car
he believed to be a sheriff's unit followed.
However, at the residence the car pulled up
and two or three men got out, yelling and
carrying at least three guns. One was a sil-
ver-colored handgun and two were black.
They appeared to the victims to be .22 or .25
caliber semi automatics.
Mr. Salgado ran inside and hid in the
kitchen, hearing someone enter the home


and yell "Where's the man with the money?"
He said he heard a shot come from one of
the bedrooms. He remained hidden till the
intruders began kicking other victims who
were on the living room floor, and threaten-
ing to shoot one if they didn't get the money.
Then Mr. Salgado yelled out that the money
was in the van and they could take it.
One of the intruders dragged Mr. Salgado
out of the house to the van where he was
hit in the left eye with a gun. He retrieved
about $3,600 from the van but then the in-
truders demanded money from the bar from
Saturday night too. When Mr. Salgado told
them he had already given it to the owner,
the men pushed Mr. Salgado back into the
house and left.
Mr. Salgado and several other victims
identified Salas from a photo line up. Offi-
cers found a unspent .22 caliber bullet in a
bedroom and the victims later turned in a
shell casing the found in the bedroom.


Sobriety checkpoint planned


DUI sobriety checkpoint is scheduled
in Hendry County for the weekend of Au-
gust 28. This operation will take place in
an undisclosed location in Hendry County.
Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden
stated, "In our continued effort to protect
the citizens and visitors in Hendry County
we are committed to getting impaired driv-
ers off our roadways. Additionally, we are
in support of education efforts such as the
national 'Drunk Driving. Over the Limit.


Under Arrest' campaign."
This checkpoint emphasis is placed on
the following: 1. Remove impaired drivers
from the roadway; 2. Heighten awareness;
3. Educate the public on the dangers of
drunk driving
Various community partnerships, in-
cluding planned DUI sobriety checkpoints,
are established with the goal of education
and information for the public on traffic
safety issues.

Dear Editor,
Let me address the concerns about the
media specialist and teacher positions. My
commitment is to the needs of all schools,
students and all of our dedicated employees.
I represent the entire county and will strive to
provide the resources needed based on the
funding we receive. The media centers are a
valuable part of our schools. The Principal
will have a person with expertise taking care
of the students needs and the library will be
open.
I recently recommended to the School
Board the purchase of a new media system
to be used in all schools. This system was
purchased and will be installed in all schools
soon. We also have added online E-Books
that students can read at school and home


Townsend plans program

on ranching history
Dallas B. Townsend, Hendry County
Extension Director and Extension Agent
IV for many years, will kick off the LaBelle
Heritage Museum's 2010 -2011 program
year on Thursday, Sept. 2, when he pres-
ents a talk on the History of Ranching in
Southwest Florida at the museum's 7 p.m.
meeting in the Commission Chambers of
LaBelle City Hall at 481 West Hickpochee
Avenue (State Road 80).
Townsend, a member of the Felda
pioneer Asa Barton Townsend family,
graduated from LaBelle High School and
received both his B.S. and M.S. from the
University of Florida College of Agriculture
and Life Sciences. He is so well regarded
by his peers that the Dallas B. Townsend
Agricultural Center, housing the Hendry
County Extension offices and the Hendry
and Glades County SWCD offices, was
named in his honor.
The Dallas Townsend Term Professor-
ship at the University of Florida College of
Agriculture and Life Sciences was estab-
lished in 2005 by his friends and former
colleagues in honor of his dedication and
commitment to the field of agriculture.
The public is welcome to attend all
LaBelle Heritage Museum Program Meet-
ings. A short business meeting will take
place after the refreshment break follow-
ing Dallas Townsend's interesting presen-
tation.

addresses workforce reductions Thank You


which provides the same book for all stu-
dents thereby eliminating out of stock prob-
lems. This will increase reading selections
and opportunities for all students to read
more both in English and Spanish.
Teacher positions have been advertised
and are filled either by new applicants or
school transfers. The district has been moni-
toring enrollment which is projected based
on last year's students counts. That does not
guarantee us these students will return this
year. We are projecting a continued decline
in enrollment which has happened since
2004 with a total loss of 300 students since
2004. Declining enrollment also means de-
creased revenue from the State and Federal
Government.
When you have less students and money
that means you have to make reductions in
the workforce. The School District has lost
more than five million dollars in general fund
revenue since the 2007-2008 school year
alone. That doesn't include Federal dollars
lost and increased costs from non-funded
mandates imposed by the State and Federal
Government. The District has consolidated
and reduced jobs in all areas of the School
District including our county office adminis-
tration in efforts to address reduced funding.
This has changed the way we operate and
we must continue to make adjustments.
Florida's economy has continued to de-
cline which means parents loose their jobs in
the private and retail job markets. That also
forces people to move where they can find
jobs and has been a contributing factor to the
student enrollment decline for our School Dis-
trict and the other 66 counties in the State of
Florida. Local and State property values have
continued to decline producing less revenue
for the State and local School Districts.
Retail sales and other tax collections have
continued to decline since 2008 which is an-
other part of the funding for all State and
Government entities. The State of Florida
economists and others predict the econ-
omy not to turn around for a minimum of
3-4 years. The U.S. Government stimulus
funding has helped stimulate some stabil-
ity in the economy and this year the funding
goes away which creates a funding cliff for
all school Districts and the State of Florida.
The State of Florida's Leadership team has
predicted an 8 billion dollar shortfall which
means more reduced funding to all School
Districts and other programs.
The State of Florida has reduced our

funding for the last 3 years because of the
economy and Federal funding. We have all
voiced our concerns to our Legislators to
make funding for School Districts a priority
in their budgeting process. Unfortunately the
Legislature has no choice except to continue
cutbacks with less funding. The BP oil spill
has already cost the State and merchants
millions of dollars in lost revenue. Locally
the closing of the bridge on 29 in LaBelle has
had a drastic affect on local merchants.
The class size amendment passed in 2002
has cost the State of Florida over 18.5 billion
dollars thus far and school districts have
not been adequately funded to meet the re-
quirements of the amendment. The School
District is closely monitoring enrollment and
has a plan to meet class size which is avail-
able on our Web site. The District's estimat-
ed cost will exceed 1 million dollars without
additional funding. The process requires
monitoring enrollment, scheduling and a
lot of hard work by our staff at the school
and District level. We will make adjustments
as needed and staff our schools the best we
can with the resources available. The District
has continued to reduce administrative and
other positions to survive the downturns.
This year we have reorganized the entire
District in an effort to reduce costs which
also increased work loads on our District
administrative and School staffs. Our em-
ployees have worked together to maximize
efforts and will continue to provide the best
service for our students' education with the
resources provided to our District.
This economy has been a moving target
which requires constant adjustments and
tough decisions by myself, our Leadership
team and the School Board.
It has also challenged us to be creative
and utilize many grant opportunities for ad-
ditional funding. We have been in the worst
recession since the great depression and
economists are predicting a double dip re-
cession which may last longer than original-
ly forecasted. We must hope and pray things
get better for all of us while remembering
those that are in worse circumstances than
some of us.
In summary I appreciate the concern
about the media specialist and other posi-
tions. We will continue to make adjustments
as the economy improves.
Sincerely,
Richard A. Rick Murphy
Superintendent of Schools

New Christian school ready Church Briefs


to open doors in September


International Christian Academy "ICA",
a new Christian private-school, K-12th, re-
ceived their business license on August 20,
2010. At this time, they are ready to open
school. Director, Mrs. Tracy Co, along with
her advisory team, felt that it would be in the
best interest of the students and parents to
open after Labor Day, on Sept. 7. This allows
students to receive their scholarship letters
and ICA to be able to accept those scholar-
ships.
ICA will be a 21st century technology
school. Each student will be assigned a lap-
top computer. In addition to core subjects,
students will take a foreign language, three
times a week. PE, art, music, piano lessons,
liturgical dance and sign language, will be
taught as well.
Tracy Co praises International Christian
Fellowship of LaBelle for sponsoring this op-
portunity for the community and their chil-
dren.
ICA's tuition is the lowest around. There-
fore, if a student qualifies for the Tax-Credit


scholarship or the McKay scholarship, it will
pay 100 percent of the tuition and books.
Tax-Credit scholarships are sponsored by
private corporations and are based on the
income of the household.
If a student attended a public school last
year and they were eligible to receive re-
duced or free lunch, that student is probably
eligible to receive a tax-credit scholarship.
The McKay scholarship is a different schol-
arship from the tax-credit scholarship. A
student may be eligible to receive this schol-
arship if they take speech, or have special
learning needs or have an IEP (individual-
ized educational plan) written on them. Ad-
ditionally, these scholarships offered, save
the tax-payers money. Parents may apply for
scholarships at www.stepupforstudents or
on the Florida Department of Educational
Web site. Registration is still opened for In-
ternational Christian Academy. For more in-
formation, contact Tracy Co at 863-675-1112
or 863-675-4227.

4 Story Time, representatives from the Hendry County Health
Department and the Hendry County Sheriff's Department put
on a Bike Safety Rodeo. Each child was fitted for their own

new helmets, a bag of goodies, an ice cream snack and a
smile on their face. A big thank you to everyone who helped
with story time by presenting a lesson or providing materials
and snacks for our program. It was a huge success with over
730 children participating throughout the summer. Stop by
the library to see the BIG ice cream cone that was built by
adding one scoop of ice cream for each child that attended a
Summer Story Time. The 'paper' ice cream cone goes all the

Coach Bennett wonders: Is this the Year of the Cowboy?


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The LaBelle Cowboys have a very excit-
ing message for football fans this year. Look
out here come the Cowboys!
Head Coach Hal Bennett is hoping that
this could be the Year of the Cowboys. He
said he sees a lot of things coming together
this year. A bigger offensive line, a "Gramat-
ica caliber" kicker and a stronger, more co-
hesive team all point to better things for the
Cowboys this year.
Coach Bennett is already proud of his of-
fensive line. Last year only one player was
over 200 pounds; this year only one is under
200 pounds in line with today's standards,
he said. He mentions senior center Josey
Scannell at 6'3" 285 pounds and junior Ian
Kelley 6'5" 220 pounds. Since he came back
to LHS as a coach in 2004, Coach Bennett
said their size goes in waves peaks and val-
leys. For whatever reason their size is on the
upswing again, making them more competi-
tive against bigger opponents.
Coach said he's had a good turnout in the
weight room over summer, and that is sure
to benefit the team.
The team as a lot of returnees and a solid
core of leaders, Coach Bennett said. Seniors
David Miller (running back and defensive
back), Alejandro Moreno (offensive and de-
fensive lineman) and Chris Garcia (running
back and defensive back) are the team cap-

fore the race. Tickets may be purchased

my Hill, Jesse Brown, John Wilson, Tra-
vis Drapal and many others. Come early.

p.m. For more information call 863-673-

tains this year.
Coach is also looking for big things from
seniors Will Thomas (wide receiver and de-
fensive back) and Michael Pittman (running
back and defensive back).
Fans can get a good look at the Cow-
boys at the Kick Off Classic in Immokalee
Friday, August 27. "It will be a good test of
what we've been working on," coach said.
"Immokalee is always loaded with athletes
but they also still have a new coach."
Clewiston and Bishop Verot are always
on the Cowboys' mind. Tough opponents
and perennial Cowboy rivals, Verot has a lot
of returning players this year- Coach Bennett
calls them "impressive." He's not as familiar
with the Clewiston Tigers this year, but said
they have lost a lot of linemen. He notes that
"We battled them tough last year." It was a
game that included a wild, explosive fourth
quarter.
The Junior Varsity Cowboys have played
extremely well against the Tigers.
Kicker David Antunez has returned to La-
Belle after a year elsewhere. Coach Bennett
said David is a "Gramatica caliber" kicker
with a strong leg. He said he knows where to
place the ball and is good at position kicks.
In fact, David pulled off two 70-yard practice
kicks recently.
Taylor Jordan is back for the Cowboys.
The QB missed most of last year with con-
cussion issues, but coach said he looks
good. He's running offense, throwing the
ball well and looks 100 percent. Taylor has
made big strides, coach said, he's improved
his attitude and leadership skills as well.
"With him, we have a chance to turn
some heads offensively," according to Coach
Bennett
Transfer from Leonard High School in
Ruskin, junior Pablo Jaramillo is a corner-
back. Coach said he stepped right in, was


welcomed into the team and is already "one
of the guys." Coach said Pablo has a great
work ethic and attitude, and adds depth to
the team. "A coach couldn't ask for anything
more," he said.
Sophomore Derrick Bass (QB, defensive
back) and Chris Jasiak (offensive and de-
fensive lineman) are expected to contribute
quite a bit to the team.
The Cowboys have made a list of goals
for the year, including winning Districts a
major goal for a team that only won one
district game last season. District opponents
include Lake Placid, Dunbar, Gateway Char-
ter, CHS and Island Coast. Coach Bennett
expects Island Coast will be the toughest
game of the season for the Cowboys. District
champions last year, Island Coast graduated
only six team members. "They're a power-
house," coach said, "but beatable."
Other goals include "protecting their
house" winning all their home games; and
being the most physical team on the field.
Coach Bennett sees a lot of improvement
in that last goal. At the Fellowship of Chris-
tian Athletes Camp at Ave Maria this sum-
mer the LaBelle boys held their own against
big squads like North Fort Myers and Golden
Gate.
"What's different about this group is that
they're not afraid to mix it up with anyone,"
coach said, adding, "They all get along and
work together."
This is the most cohesive year he's had as
head coach, he explained, adding that LHS
has some top notch facilities and the team
just keeps working.
The Cowboys have added two new
coaches. Doug Russell is youth pastor at
Caloosa Baptist Church, a great worker and
good with the team, Coach Bennett com-
mented. He's volunteering with the JV of-
fensive and defensive line.


Jason Bond, former head coach at Moore
Haven, has also joined the team. Teaching
English and Social Studies at LHS, Coach
Bond came over the summer, bringing a lot
of experience from Jupiter, Moore Haven
and Ocala Vanguard. Coach Bond is the team
offensive coordinator, the wide receiver and
QB coach and passing game coordinator.
Due to Coach Bond's efforts, Coach Bennett
is looking forward to a passing game that's
"way more dynamic than before."
Coach Bennett is pleased that all other
coaching staff is returning, along with their
great knowledge and experience with kids.
All in all, Coach Bennett anticipates quite
a year for the Cowboys. In fact, he said, "This
is the year to turn some heads."
The team is also doing some fundraising
to buy an updated program that will make
it much faster for Coach Bennett to put to-
gether video highlights used to attract the at-
tention of college scouts to LaBelle players.

Homemade heaven from the oven now in LaBelle


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Who can resist the welcoming smell of
cinnamon? That's the aroma that greets
you as you open the door of Suzie's Sweet
Smiles. Tucked inside of Flower Power, 340
N. Bridge Street, this brand new bakery has
treats to tempt any taste.
Owner Suzie Conner managed her fa-
ther's restaurant, the Golden Coral in Lake
Placid, and grew up in the business. Still, she
had never baked anything from scratch till
three years ago. The results were way over
the top. Family and friends urged her to use
that innate talent and open her own bakery.
She had a bakery booth at Shell Point for a
while, but she is putting her whole heart into
her new place in LaBelle.
She started by offering cookie cards to
Robbie Munson at her Flower Power Flower
Shop. These 4-6 inch cookies are artfully

decorated on one side; the other is covered
with a personal message, just like a greet-
ing card, printed on edible icing sheets. They
come ready-made with messages to suit dif-
ferent occasions and may also be custom
ordered. Suzie also offers cookie bouquets
on sticks in a pot or bouquets in a box great
for shipping.
All her delightful goodies are made fresh
daily. Open just about two weeks, she said
her incredible cinnamon rolls and gourmet
cupcakes seem to be her customers' favor-
ites so far. These innovative gourmet cup-
cakes are the right portion sizes all filled
with luscious fresh fruit fillings and topped
with her own butter cream frosting.
Only the best ingredients are good enough
for Suzie's creations. She proudly says, "I'm
all about quality." She's also all about keep-
ing things local, and buys her honey from
Curtis Honey House.
In addition to the classic cupcake flavors
you'll want to try out her specialties like tira-
misu (divine coffee and mascarpone cheese
flavored dessert) peach melba, Death by
Chocolate or banana split.
By the way, if you're on a diet you don't
have to stay away. Suzie's unique innovative
style has produced some terrific recipes for
you. Try her Morning Glory Muffins: whole
wheat flour, oats, carrots, raisins, cranber-
ries, apples, and honey make this a very
big seller.
She will also sweeten with sugar substi-
tutes, if you let her know in advance, and
has gluten-free products by special order.
She also plans to make breads: French,
honey wheat, sour dough and multi-grain.
This October or November Suzie hopes
to offer her customers a small bistro pro-
viding tasty and classic lunches deli sand-


wiches made with her own roasted meats,
homemade pasta salads and soups. With
a little rearranging they can put in a couple
small tables and stools at the counter for a
nice intimate atmosphere.
Suzie said she never gets tired of her bak-
ery. "This is what I love to do." Of course,
it helps that people get excited about her
food. She said it keeps her motivated. Su-
zie's Sweet Smiles will be a family affair with
her two sons, DJ, 11, and Eric, 15, helping
out on Saturdays.
Naturally, you can order special occasion
cakes and delicious pies from Suzie. To find
out more about this tasty new LaBelle busi-
ness, check out Suzie's Web site sending-


sweetsmiles.com or catch her on Facebook
at Sending Sweet Smiles. Become a fan of
her FB page and get a chance to win a cook-
ie bouquet of your choice, since she periodi-
cally does drawings to thank her "fans."
Suzie's Sweet Smiles is located at 340
N. Bridge Street. Call 675-7040. She is open
Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Friday and
Saturday 6:30 a.m.-noon.

gredient imagination.

from the event will go toward finishing the
new Veterans Memorial Park.
Commissioners cited safety concerns in
denying approval for a one-night haunted
house on a vacant lot by the fire station on
Oct. 31. Congestion including many young
trick or treaters in that area worried the
board. They suggested the project be pre-
sented to the Rec Board for approval to use
the Nature Park, which they felt would be
more suited to the purpose.
The board will have a budget workshop
Tuesday, August 31, at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.

Local agritourism
At the Florida Small Farms Alternative En-
terprise Conference in Kissimmee on July 31
and August 1 over 700 farming professionals
and others involved in agriculture statewide
discussed aspects to improve agricultural
operations. Martha Pierce, director of River-
side Retreat outside of LaBelle, and Michael
Weston, Senior Forester with the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry, spoke in a break-out ses-
sion about agritourism.
Agritourism is a rising alternative revenue
generation opportunity and awareness op-
portunity for a growing number of farms
of all sizes as people look to connect with
natural settings and farming. Typically, agri-
tourism has focused on birding tours, site
visits to view agricultural operations, and
camping.
Opportunities for revenue on sites of all
sizes include: horse camping; forest maze
navigation; "how-to" sessions that relate
back to the areas in cities and suburbs that
people live in such as vegetable growing
or tree planting; leadership and corporate
event hosting for challenge courses and
challenges; campfire events; and, wagon
rides. Martha Pierce presented on the many
opportunities at Riverside Retreat just out-
side of LaBelle, along with challenges and
opportunities.
Michael Weston discussed educating stu-
dents in forests and existing farm operations,
along with methods to bring agritourism
onto a property that minimizes disruptions
to existing farming operations while taking
advantage of existing conditions on the site.


Originally founded in 1923, Florida Community Bank has a history that is matched by no other financial institution
in the area. With over 150 years of combined service our team has served the LaBelle community for the last

Welcome to the world
Baby gators continue to be welcomed into the world at Gatorama this weekend by some gentle if inexperienced
hands. Young folks like six-year-old Damien Gonneville of Sebring all the way up to 92-year-old Lela Camp of Pioneer
Plantation (being assisted by volunteer Ann Starke) were thrilled last Saturday as the tiny reptiles peeked out of their
shells for the first time and crawled into their hands. The Alligator Hatching Festival continues through August 31.
Gatorama is located at 6180 US 27, Palmdale. For information call 863-675-0623 or visit www.Gatorama.com. At right,
Gatorama owner Allen Register explains just how to play midwife to a tiny alligator.
