A chance encounter
While recently visiting family in Maryland, Brenda Barnes and her hus-
band, Mike, decided to take the Metro down to Washington, D.C. There
were hundreds of folks near the World War II memorial when she spotted
Colin Powell! She inched her way through the crowd, shook hands and
got a photo. Colin Powell apparently went there "unannounced" to shake
hands and thank the wonderful veterans that served our country. There
were hundreds of veterans at the site. Many were taken there by the Honor
Flight Network. Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created
solely to honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices. They transport
our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top
priority is given to the senior veterans World War II survivors, along with
those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Of all of the wars in recent
memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as
a nation and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one
thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our
thanks to these brave men and women is running out. Thanks to all who
have served our great country!

milla e down

Caloosa Belle
National news placing Hendry County as the 11th
most economically challenged county in the United
States may be shocking, but residents have long been
aware that our local economy is in trouble.
Hendry County's Director of the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget Jennifer Davis said the county is try-
ing to hold the line on taxes and has set the tentative
millage rate at 6.5 mills.
The commission's final vote on the millage rate will
take place at the Courthouse Tuesday, Sept. 28. The
meeting begins at 5:30 p.m.
See Millage Page 3

It's official. City water customers will see a 15 per-
cent increase in their October water bill.
The proceeds will go toward repaying a $10 million
RUS loan for the new reverse osmosis water treatment
plant currently being designed for the city. Construc-
tion should begin next year.
Ultimately, a total of some 95 percent in utility rate
increases are to be spread over three years, virtually

doubling customers' current bills.
Mayor Puletti explained that the city does
not operate its utilities as money makers,
but simply to pay for themselves.
Commissioner Dave Lyons noted that, if
the city gets more water customers it could
moderate those increases in the future.

City holds millage rate
LaBelle residents and businesses will
continue to pay three mills in city taxes this


up to take part in the Bike Fest, with a total
of 40 anticipated. Some community groups
will also have space at the event.
Vendor booths will be available for local
residents for $75; $100 for outside vendors.
Organizers are planning for four bands to
play. The winner of a Battle of the Bands
will have free entry into the Fort Myers Bike
Nite band competition.

keep the same rate as they have for the past
several years.
The proposed budget for 2010-11 was

The Legion Riders Bike Fest was ap-
proved unanimously by the commissioners.
It will take place at Barron Park Saturday,

that the park will be left in "pristine" con-
dition. All beer sales and consumption will
be limited to the tennis court area, with one

any beer outside of the approved area.
Thus far, 16 local vendors have signed


passed which allowed the hospital to utilize
one of its 2.9 mills in ad valorem taxes to
fund a new emergency room in Clewiston
and $2 million worth of improvements to
the LaBelle Convenient Care Center. Tout-
ing the need for the electorate to pass the
referendum, at the time the HRMC admin-
istration promised no new taxes. The ref-
erendum did pass, thanks to a Clewiston
majority.
However, when TRIM notices came out
in mid-August with the proposed taxes, they
included additional millage for HRMC.
HRMC Interim Chief Financial Officer
William Stoltzfus and Chief Executive Of-
ficer Lynn Beasley held the meeting in La-
Belle with other board members.
Mr. Stoltzfus told the small audience
that the hospital is projecting a "thin, lean
budget" for the coming year. Still, they an-
ticipate growth and project a three percent
increase in services.
The proposed budget includes a price
adjustment of five percent for all patients.
He explained that the hospital has sever-
al new employees including two physicians;
2.5 positions were mandated for electronic
health records and there are two adminis-
trative positions.
The board pointed out that HRMC has a
new pediatrician, ear, nose throat clinic and
anticipates a wound clinic all of which are
expected to add 12 percent to the hospital's
bottom line.
Last week construction began on the
new Emergency Room in Clewiston.
Like all government entities in the coun-
ty, HRMC is staring at a 14 percent decrease
in taxable values in Hendry County.
LaBelle resident Trish Arnold was at the
meeting. She recalled the hospital's cam-
paign to fund the new ER, which promised
no new taxes to build it and demanded the
board explain why they want a millage in-
crease.
Board member Miller Couse said that
during the last three months it has become
clear that all health care revenue is down.
He said the board had planned for an 8-10
percent decrease in ad valorem taxes, but
was taken unawares by the reality of the
14 percent drop. There has also been a
decrease in patients in all phases of health
care, he pointed out.
He said there are "no good options, and


we are not proud of where we are today."
Ms. Arnold warned that we can all expect
the economy to get worse next year and
said she was "shocked" when she saw the
hospital wants to up its ad valorem taxes.
Board member and LaBelle resident
Steve Nisbet said the hospital has unexpect-
edly lost money the last three months, espe-
cially in Medicare payments.
Mr. Beasley said this is a transition year
but they expect improvement in the bottom
line once the new facility is built. They can
receive no Medicare support during con-
struction, he said. He also said that hospital
administration is proud of the budgetary
turnaround the hospital made from a few
years ago, adding they "don't want to go
back there."
The board said that actually, with the de-
crease in taxable value, the proposed mill-
age would not technically be an increase.
However, Ms. Arnold pointed out that the
average person will see any additional mill-
age as an increase in their taxes and warned,
"This will push you back."
LaBelle resident Richard Yoraschek
pointed out that the $2 million additions
to the Convenient Care Center in LaBelle is
not nearly enough for the west side of the
county.
Mr. Beasley explained that plans are be-
ing considered for more primary services in
LaBelle including CT, MRI and portable ul-
trasound for a better, faster turnaround time
and more convenience for western County
patients as well as more primary care, a
broader range of specialty services and full
time physician for LaBelle.
Mr. Beasley said the hospital had been
expanding its services until the economy
went down and people stopped getting
all but emergency services. He pinned his
hopes for economic salvation for the hos-
pital on a larger population, including more
baby boomers.
In explaining why HRMC is important to
LaBelle, Mr. Beasley said that as the third
largest employer in Hendry County, HRMC
has a positive economic effect of $18 mil-
110n per year for the county and provides
350 jobs.
However, as a rural county hospital re-
quired to accept many uninsured patients,
HRMC needs public support and added that
"referendum voters agreed" last Spring.


Statistics show that the LaBelle clinic
serves 700-800 patients per month after be-
ing open two years. Most patients in LaBelle
pay. The Clewiston clinic serves 900-1,000
per month, but many are uninsured or can-
not pay.
Mr. Nisbet felt that staying at 2.9 mills
would be difficult. However, with 60 per-
cent of the folks in LaBelle against the ref-
erendum last March, he would "not vote for
more than 2.9 mills."
He said the board needs to find a way to
make more cuts.
The board will have its final vote on set-
ting the millage Sept. 21 in Clewiston.

However, if your taxable value is lower than

Although keeping the Inillage rate at 6.5
would technically be a decrease in taxes

This year county departments were
asked to base their budget requests on
three scenarios: decrease their operations

lessons and "getting ev-
erything in sync recently v
I read a story written by a 1
young single woman nmd
Ellen Petrakis. Les Morgan
Iwas impressed with
her decisions and though she had to keep
renewing her choices, Ellen learned life-
lessons that proved to be invaluable to her.
I am grateful she wrote of her experiences.
Though it is somewhat personal in nature '


the lessons are transferrable to anyone at
anytime. Here is her story...
"I was about 14 years old, just starting
high school, when I made the decision to
save myself for marriage. Having grown up
in church I knew that it was the night thing to
do. I felt very strongly about waiting for my
husband and even though all of my friends
felt differently they always respected my de-
cision. Even my guy friends respected how I
felt, however they always tried to get me to
change my mind.
'As the years went by, I watched as my
friends dated guys, slept with them and
then broke up. I remember listening to my
friend Pam as she enied her eyes out when
she found out she was diagnosed with HPY
an incurable STD she got from a guy she
hardly knew. I begged my best friend not
to go through with her abortion when she
got pregnant but she refused my help. I re-
member looking into my friend Rebecca's


eyes as she lay on a hospital bed recover-
ing from her suicide attempt. She tried to
kill herself because her boyfriend whom she
gave her virginity to had broken up with her
for another girl. It confirmed to me that I had
made the night decision.
"These guys didn't really care for these
girls, mostly they just used them. It became
"known" that I was a virgin and wasn't one
of those girls. I kind of liked that. It made
me different from everyone else. And when
people would ask me why, I would be able
to tell them about my relationship with God
and how he wants us to wait until marriage
and how I wanted to do that for him. I would
tell myself, "until a guy is willing to get up in
front of my family, his family and God and
promise to love me forever, he didn't de-
serve me. It was that simple."
"My mom always told me that I would be
the one the guys would remember, not the
ten other girls he slept with. He would re-
member me because I wouldn't sleep with
him. And I can tell you today that my mother
was right. Years later when I run into old
boyfriends or even just my guy friends they
would always say, "There was something
different about you -you weren't like the
other girls." They may not have known it at
the time but in a way they respected me and
realized later on why.
"Well, high school came and went. I had
boyfriends, some waited and respected my
decision and some didn't. College came and
went, more boyfriends some waited, some
didn't. When I turned 25, I realized I had
dated all these guys and not one was worthy,
not one was the one that God had for me. I
was so thankful that even though I may have
wasted some time and went through a lot of
heartache, I was faithful to God and did not
give away my virginity. I was still waiting to
give that gift to my husband. I promised God
I would stop dating and just wait. Wait for
the one he had for me.
'About a year and half went by and I was
still waiting. Now I was starting to get wor-
ried. Here I am a 26 year old virgin. Did I real-
ly wait all these years and now I'm still wait-
ing? My patience was running out...I had
read so many books on how to be single -I
just couldn't read one more book. I would
joke around with God and say when is he
going to walk through those church doors? I
can t wait anymore.
"It was Sunday July 11, 2004 when this


gorgeous guy comes walking through the
church doors. As soon as I saw him I fell in
love. The moment we met I just knew that
he was the one. God had promised me that
he would confirm it to me and he did. The
very first time we hung out it was amazing.
All the questions, all the doubts they just
went away. I looked at this man in the eyes
and I could say, "I waited for you. You're the
one." And to know that God was in it, that
he had planned for this day to happen was
incredible.
"I can tell you it is so amazing to give this
gift to your husband. You loved him so much
before you even knew him to save yourself
just for him. We were married on July 7th
almost exactly 2 years after we met, in the
Bahamas.
"I have a prayer I would like to share with
you. It is a prayer that helped me through
my waiting times. When I met my husband,
I showed him this prayer. He was so hon-
ored to see how much I loved him and how
I prayed for him before we even met one an-
other. I hope you guys make this your prayer
tonight. Here it is. "Lord God, your Word
declares that if I delight myself in you-if I
enjoy and seek your pleasure above mine-
you'll give me the desires of my heart (Psalm
37:4). Desiring a husband is neither evil nor
selfish because marriage is honorable (He-
brews 13:4). At the beginning of creation,
you proclaimed, "It is not good that man
should be alone" and then you created Eve
to be a suitable partner for Adam (Genesis
2:18). In the name of Jesus, I ask that you
would protect the husband-a suitable part-
ner-you have chosen for me."
It is interesting to note she doesn't men-
tion even one regret in her choice to wait
until marriage. Nor does she feel deprived of
anything. A story like Ellen's is probably not
something one will hear on television today.
In fact, a person like Ellen would probably
be portrayed as a Bible-thumping, wild-eyed,
bigoted, fanatic-terrorist with a "holier-than-
thou" attitude. Yet, what she communicates
in her own words is just the opposite. She is
a normal, intelligent, educated, red-blooded
American young woman who chose to hon-
or God's word.
The result -no regrets. Only rejoicing.
Lesson learned. Call your next case.

Church, located 200 yards behind Flora & Ella's

Any person, young or old, can have high
cholesterol. Many people never get tested,
but it's very important for you to learn how
to prevent high choles-
terol and know what your
cholesterol levels mean.
High cholesterol can put
you at risk for heart dis-
ease. According to the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC),
about one of every six
adult Americans has high Patricia
blood cholesterol. Sep- Dobbins
tember is recognized as
"National Cholesterol Education Month."
Now, is a good time to get your blood cho-
lesterol checked and take necessary steps
to lower it if it's too high. It's also a good
time to learn about how food and lifestyle
choices can help you reach personal cho-
lesterol goals. Millions of American adults
have total cholesterol levels above what's
considered to be healthy levels, which can
put them at high risk for heart disease.
You can't really tell that you have high
cholesterol. High cholesterol doesn't have
any symptoms so many people don't know


that their cholesterol levels are too high.
It's important to get your cholesterol levels
checked regularly. Your healthcare provid-
er can do a simple blood test to check your
cholesterol. People who are overweight or
obese and those who have a family history
of high cholesterol or heart disease are at
especially high risk of developing high cho-
lesterol. High cholesterol can sometimes
be controlled through lifestyle changes. For
others, healthcare providers may prescribe
medications to treat high cholesterol, but
changes in diet and exercise must also be
made. Some of the things you can do are
listed below.
*Try to eat more fresh fruits and veg-

Caloosa Belle


by Patty Brnat
Caloosa Belle
A healthy lifestyle that's what many people are looking for
these days but it's tough. Work, family and other commitments
leave little time for exercise. For the past six years Curves has
been a central location for women of all ages who want to
trim down, shape up and get healthy. As of August 1 long time
LaBelle resident Terrie Pearce took possession of the LaBelle
Curves franchise. As the previous owners were moving and
ready to close the doors, Terrie who has been a faithful cli-
ent at Curves since it opened didn't want to lose her work
out place. She didn't want her friends to lose it either. So, she
decided to buy it.
Since then the facility has undergone a few changes most-
ly cosmetic. Tanya Podubynskyj has been Curves manager
since it opened. For Tanya, the best part has been making and
keeping so many lovely new friends. That means virtually ev-
ery lady who joins Curves! "I love my ladies!" she said.
Belinda Carmona has been a client since January and has
been working there almost as long. She said she likes the
ladies who are members and the closeness they share. "Ev-
ery lady has a story," Belinda said, "reasons for coming to
Curves." Some have medical issues that exercise helps them
with; some just come for the social aspect. "They all inspire
me," Belinda said.
By the way, Belinda is bilingual and very helpful to the


Spanish speaking clients. Terrie's daughters, Jamie Bartley
and Tracy Barraza, will also be taking a more active role at
Curves.
Terrie is thrilled with her staff. "Belinda and Tanya are very
highly valued, especially since this is all new to me." Terrie's
background is in real estate and PCT/EMT (trauma). "Own-
ing Curves has been very challenging." Terrie said, "There is
so much to learn about the franchise, its policies and proce-
dures."
Terrie herself said she didn't join so much to lose weight as
to improve her overall health and stay fit. Lots of women join
for different reasons and Curves can fill the bill for all of them,
Terrie said.
In addition to state-of-the-art workout stations, Curves
members benefit from health tips of the week and to keep
everything interesting there are puzzles and bingo. New
members begin a health history, with weight and measure-
ments taken for a baseline for comparison each month and a
printout of your progress. Not sure if you're ready to work out?
Come in for a free week trial.
Kathleen Cianfrani is a dedicated Curves member. After five
bypasses and stent placements she said, "Curves has been like
a miracle for me." She has lost weight, gained strength and
energy and to top it off met a lot of great gals.
Curves is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 7-7; Tues-
day and Thursday 7-6. Look for Saturdays hours in the fall.

Parents and students busily crossed items
off their back-to-school checklists, but many
may have missed an important task -a visit
to the eye doctor for a comprehensive eye
exam. An American Optometric Association
survey, 81 percent of K-12 teachers believe
vision and learning are interdependent.
"Students don't often complain about
seeing the board clearly until their grades
are effected," said Dr. Randall T. Parrish, Jr.
of Family Eye Care. "A comprehensive eye
exam can detect problems like astigmatism,
eye coordination and moderate amounts of
farsightedness, all of which are conditions
that can prohibit optimal learning."
Below is a list of essential visual testing.
*Visual acuity is measured at several dis-
tances.
*Focusing is an important skill that is
tested.
*Visual alignment and ocular motility are
evaluated. Ideally, the muscles that aim each
eye converge so that both eyes are aimed at
the same object, refining depth perception.
*Binocular fusion (eye teaming) skills
are assessed. These skills are critical to co-


ordinate and align the eyes so the brain can
fuse the pictures into a single image.
*Testing preschoolers' color vision is
important. A large part of early educational
involves the use of color identification.
*Overall eye health is determined by ex-
amining the structures of the eye.
Studies have indicated that some children
with undetected vision problems have been
misdiagnosed with attention deficit disorder
(ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity dis-
order (ADHA). An AOA survey revealed that
64 percent of teachers witnessed a direct
improvement in a child's academic perfor-
mance and/or classroom behavior after an
eye or vision problem was diagnosed and
treated. If your child is experiencing any of
the following, contact your optometrist for
a comprehensive eye exam to eliminate the
possibility of a vision problem: Loses place
while reading; Avoids close work; Tends to
rub eyes; Has headaches; Turns or tilts head;
Makes frequent reversals when reading or
writing; Uses finger to maintain place when
reading; Omits or confuses small words
when reading; Consistently performs below


potential; Struggles to complete homework;
Squints while reading or watching televi-
sion; Has behavioral problems; Holds read-
ing material closer than normal
Early detection and treatment are vital in
correcting vision problems and helping chil-
dren see clearly. Drs. Parrish and Youmans
recommend that a child's first eye assess-
ment be performed at six months of age.
Their first comprehensive eye exam should
be performed at age three, before a child en-
ters school, and then annually. In between
exams, parents and teachers should watch
for the more prevalent signs that a student's
vision may be impaired.
If you do not have an optometrist includ-
ed in your list of health care providers you
visit regularly, Drs. Parrish and Youmans at
Family Eye Care do accept new patients and
most insurance plans.
Family Eye Care has 11 staff including Dr.
Randall T. Parrish, Jr. Doctor of Optometry
and Dr. L. Lamar Youmans, Doctor of Op-
tometry. Family Eye Care has a full service
Optical Center to provide eyewear including
sunglasses. Located at 100 N. Main Street,

nounce the recent grant award for Father-
hood Classes and Topic Support Groups.
The grant was awarded by the Circle of Par-

the Best Families. "There were only two re-
cipients for this grant in the state of Florida,
so it's an honor that we were chosen," said
Pat Dobbins, Administrator for the Hendry

The classes teach fathers many hands-on
skills and baby-basics, which include hold-
ing the baby, diaper changing, burping a
baby, comforting a baby when they are up-
set, as well as many other things that dads
may face when their bundle of joy arrives.
The main goal of the class is to give fathers
more confidence in their role of caring for
their baby. Momns and dads should be equal
partners in caring for their baby.
The Healthy Families Program has three

son, Ken Carrion and Darryl Summersett.
Classes will be offered soon, so if you are

On August 27-29 27 Hendry and Glades
County Youth attended the SWAT (Students
Working Against Tobacco) Leadership Re-
treat at Riverside Retreat in LaBelle.
The youth were from Moore Haven
Junior/Senior High School, West Glades
School, Clewiston High School and LaBelle
High School. The focus of the weekend was
building leadership, public speaking and
policy making skills.
On Friday, the youth arrived at the retreat
and were welcomed by Jim Atkinson; also
known as "Mr. H.A.P.P.Y." He runs a moti-


national speaking company called H.A.P.P.Y.
Productions.
He energized the group and worked on
developing their interpersonal and leader-
ship skills. During the weekend he taught
them games with a purpose. For example,
he was able to teach the youth ab out respect
and professionalism when addressing oth-
ers.
One of his rules for the weekend was to
answer and address people with "yes sir,
thanks for calling on me and my name is..."
He provided an energetic positive atmo-


sphere for the training, and the kids loved it.
In addition, on the first night Civic Com-
munications, a training group out of Talla-
hassee gave a presentation on Candy Fla-
vored Tobacco and trained the youth on
policy developlment.dta de
Te youth earne ta in or er to give a
presentation they have to learn the facts, do
their homework and present with passion
and clarity.
we turdda morning ads theebig tst of the
ing to prepare a policy presentation on candy
flavored tobacco for a local panel of leaders
in our community. The panel consisted of
three Glades County representatives: Com-
missioner Butch Jones, Commissioner Don-
na Storter-Long and school board member
Jeri Wilson.
Representing Hendry County were Mayor
Paul Puletti, School Board Member Rever-
end Dwayne Brown and Sheriff Steve Whid-
den. This provided a great opportunity for
the youth to gain experience presenting to
decision makers in their communities and
get feedback on those presentations.
The feedback that was given was ex-
tremely beneficial as it provided insight into
what the youth would face in trying to get
a policy passed by a county commission,
school board or city council.
The SWAT youth are working with their
community Tobacco-Free Partnerships on is-
sues like banning the sale of candy flavored


tobacco, a model comprehensive tobacco
free policy for all K-12 schools, tobacco free
parks and smoke free multi-unit housing.
The rest of the day Saturday was spent
with more presentation training by Mr.
H.A.P.P.Y., fun and games outdoors, which
included some pool time and a nature walk
around the Riverside Retreat acreage.
To wrap the day up the youth worked on
their calendar of club activities for the year.
They began planning for several tobacco and
drug observances like Red Ribbon Week in
Octob er when youth and adults pledge to be
drug free, and the Great American Smoke
Out in November, which is an observance
to raise awareness about tobacco use.
Overall, the event was a great success!
The youth are energized for a new school
year with some great activities planned and
new policy and leadership skills to help them
work on different policy issues.

SWAT youth of Hendry County please con-
tact Valarie James the Tobacco Prevention

things from this ambitious and creative

The Cowboys are smarting over last Fri-
day night's 27-25 loss to Evangelical Chris-
tian School in overtime.
Coach Hal Bennett said his team had
three very good quarters, but felt they got a
little complacent at the end and "gave it to
them."
At one time the Cowboys had a 19-6 lead
on the out-of-towners, but 13 unanswered
points came back to haunt them.
Coach said his boys played hard, but
weather conditions kept them from practic-
ing as much last week as they should have.
This week they're working on game prep-
aration how to handle it when things go
wrong on the field. Mental preparation is the
hardest, he said.
The intensity of the game is difficult to
emulate in practice, so the coaches are in-
creasing the intensity and tempo this week.
One of the most exciting moments for
the LaBelle team and fans was a 99-yard
kickoff return TD by David Antunez in the
second quarter, right after ECS scored. It


was his second in two weeks. In fact, Coach
Bennett called David "our most dangerous
weapon."
Chris Garcia also gets credit for an 11-
yard TD run.
Offensive Player of the Week Taylor Jor-
dan. Taylor threw for a TD a 34-yard pass to
senior receiver William Thomas. Taylor also
tried for a ten-yard TD in overtime. Taylor
had 74 yards rushing and 95 in passing for
the game.
Defensive Player of the Week David An-
tunez received that honor for a key intercep-
tion that stopped an ECS drive and returned
momentum to the Cowboys.
David also earned the Special Teams
Player for the Week for his 99-yard return.
Senior James Hester is also a Special Teams
Player of the Week. His perfect snaps set up
for extra points and points in miserable field
conditions.
Practice Player of the Week Paul Smith.
Coach called him a hard worker and said the
team needs more like him.
This Friday the Cowboys take on Bishop
Verot at home. Game time 7:30 p.m.

As the 2010-11 school year begins, stu-
dents entering ninth grade in Hendry County
Public Schools, along with all other entering
ninth graders across the state of Florida,
face revised high school graduation require-
ments. Legislators enacted new revisions to
Florida Public Schools' general high school
graduation requirements during the 2010
Legislative Session. These new revisions are
found in Senate Bill 4.
In addition to current general graduation
requirements, changes affecting entering
ninth graders are phased in following the
timeline below.

The 127 Corridor Sale was a success this year

September 16, 2010

Shopping A necessity? An event? A
sport?
There are lots of jokes about wornen
and shopping but, look out! Shopping isn't
just for the ladies! Especially when you're
talking about the 127 Corridor Sale aka the
World's Largest Yardsale. Headquarters for
this annual shop-fest that runs from Gads-
den, Alabama, to Hudson, Michigan, are at
the Fentress County Chamber of Cornrerce
in Jamestown, Tenn, on the beautiful Cun-
berland Plateau. Frorn start to finish it's 675
miles of incredible ...stuff!
Just ask Patty Ellison and Judy Reinbott
of LaBelle. Partners in Miss Patty's Formerly
Yours Consignment Boutique and Furnish-
ings, they go every year on a quest to find the


perfect iterns for the shop.
Tired but satisfied, they returned to La-
Belle with their treasures a few short weeks
ago. "You've got to be a real survivor to get
through it," Patty said.
This year Patty and Judy met Mose and
Carol Shelton, also LaBelle residents, who
sell up there every year.
Naturally, Patty and Judy are going back
next year and they're hoping sorne other lo-
cal ladies would like to join then. If you go,
be prepared for a whirlwind of hard core yard
saling, Patty said, but for the true believer, this
four-day weekend in early August is worth it.
There's always something new, something
to really distinguish each visit. For instance,
they found the absolute best fried pies up in
Tennessee. Of course, they could be found in
lots of places up there, everyone told then


they had to go to the top of the mountain.
There "granny" picks her own apples, makes
her own crust and deep fries her pies, all with
the help of her son and daughter-in-law. They
were as far back in the woods as they could
go and "granny" and her family fit every ste-
reotype of "hillbillies" you ever heard but
those amazing pies lived up to their reputa-
tion.
Folks making the 127 Corridor Yard Sale
trek are friendly. They love to share their finds,
special places and information with others
along the route, according to Patty.
Back from their adventure, the ladies have
decided to expand Miss Patty's to include
CR's Doghouse a place where Patty's hus-


band and buddies can buy, sell and trade guy
stuff do their own wheeling and dealing
while their ladies search for treasures in the
store.
Miss Patty's Formerly Yours Consignment
Boutique and Furnishings is located at 180 S.
Main St. Open Monday, Friday and Saturday
10 a.In.-4 p.In.; Sunday 10 a.In.-2 p.m. 674-
5773.
Next year's 127 Corridor Yard Sale will be
Aug. 4-7. The sale always starts on the first
Thursday in August and runs through the fol-
lowing Sunday. Ladies who might be interest-
ed in joining a group to go next year should
call Miss Patty's the first step on next year's
adventure.
