Former jail administrator's plea bargain denied


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Former Hendry County Jail Administrator
Susan English appeared before Circuit Court
Judge Christine Greidner on Thursday, Sept.
16. The former Hendry County Jail Admin-
istrator had wanted to plead no contest to
charges of grand theft and official conduct.
The 53-year-old former law enforcement
officer was arrested on a warrant August 18,
2009, on charges of grand theft (grand larce-
ny, a first degree felony) and official miscon-
duct (making a false statement by a public
servant, a third degree felony).
A plea agreement would have allowed
her to spend 23.7 months in the Department
of Corrections. She would also be sentenced


to 20 years probation, which could be ter-
minated after two years if restitution was
made. Assistant State Attorney Dean Plattner
told the judge the
state wanted Ms. .........
English to pay res-
titution at a rate
of a minimum of
$500 per month. ..
He also said he
hoped it would be
paid back sooner
than that sched-
ule would allow
and that none of
the lost monies
have been repaid Susan English
as yet.


However, Judge Greidner rejected the
plea agreement citing the "level of the of-
fense."
Ms. English's attorney, Amira Fox, also
sought to delay sentencing until after the
holidays. This request was also denied. She
filed a motion to suppress all statements Ms.
English had made to the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement and other state agen-
cies.
The judge is considering the motion to
suppress and has scheduled a court date to
consider it at 9:30 a.m. September 28.
Judge Greidner set a pretrial date of Oct.
14. If both parties are ready to go to trial at
that time, a court date could be set for late
October or early December.
Ms. English was arrested August 18,


2009, and charged with grand larceny (a
first degree felony) and official misconduct
(making a false statement by a public ser-
vant, a third degree felony). She was freed
after posting a $25,000 bond.
Ms. English has been accused of extract-
ing $120,343.35 from Hendry County jail
prisoners' canteen money.
At the time of her arrest, Sheriff Steve
Whidden said he became concerned when
an audit conducted shortly after he took
office in January 2009 revealed cancelled
checks from the jail financial account (also
known as the canteen account) had been
made out to cash and signed by Ms. Eng-
lish.

City budget


approved

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle City Commissioners gathered
Sept. 20 for the final approval of their
2010-11 budget.
In just a few minutes the $24,002,512
budget became official, along with the
3.0 mill ad valorem millage rate. That rate
provides a 13.4 percent decrease in prop-
erty taxes for the city.
In addition to the city's ad valorem
taxes, city dwellers will pay a total of
$716,025 in various special district assess-
ments and $840,431 in intergovernmental
revenue.
In addition to other sources, the bud-
get includes some $15 million in grant/
loan funding for the new water treatment
plant.
The board also approved submission
of grant applications for Phase Two of the
Regional Sports Park on Forrey Road and
the proposed water park at Barron Park.
Both applications are for $200,000 and re-
quire no matching funds.

Continued From Page 1
On the environmental front, a number
of area activists were on hand for the can-
didate's arrival.
Ed Hanlon Professor. Soil and Water Sci-
ence Southwest Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences IFAS has a deep and abiding
interest and a wealth of knowledge par-
ticularly where the ecosystem and agricul-
ture intersect.
In fact, he is a main contributor to a new
program known as the Hendry County Sus-
tainable Biofuels Center, along with John
Capece and others. The project incorporates
both best practices farming and educational
components, the idea being to "grow" our
own environmentally sensitive employees
and grow our own environmentally friendly,
renewable energy sources.
Rae Ann Wessel is the Natural Resource
Policy Director for the Sanibel-Captiva Con-
servation Foundation. For Ms. Wessel, the


emphasis is on funding sources to imple-
ment good environmental practices.
"It's important that the Governor keep
the money for conservation up front in the
budget." Everglades Restoration and Florida
Forever need to be in the budget to stay, she
said.
Ms. Sink told her audience that, as gov-
ernor, she would rely on her background as
the child of a farm family. Her education in
family finance began early at age 11, when
she was writing business checks and keep-
ing the farm books for her family,
With vision, Florida has an opportunity
to become a leader in biofuel crops and
create a diversified economy, she said, and
promised a balance between the economy
and the environment.
While Ms. Sink was here, Sheriff Steve
Whidden had a one-on-one meeting with
the candidate. He said they talked about the
economic situation as it affects law enforce-
ment.
"In 1995," he said, "HCSO had 9,500 calls
for service. In 2010, there have been 26,000
calls for service thus far, which are being
handled on "basically the same budget with
no end in sight."

Two charged

with poaching
An early morning traffic stop Thursday
by Glades County Sheriff's Office depu-
ties led to the arrest of two men on charg-
es of alligator poaching. When deputies
stopped a pickup on Hwy. 78 near Moore
Haven, they discovered 36 dead alligators
piled on top of each other and a bag con-
taining 19 live alligator hatchings. Only
one of the alligators was legally tagged.
At that point, deputies called officers with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to investigate.
FWC investigators charged Joel M.
Green of Fort Myers, 47, and Donald T.
Strenth, 22, of Moore Haven with 54 fel-
ony counts each on illegal possession of
American alligators. Both are being held
at the Glades County Jail with no bond.
The alligators were taken to a licensed
processor, and the hides will be retained
for evidence. The live hatchlings were
returned to the wild. It is unclear where
the alligators came from or what the men
were doing with them.
"We hope this case sends a strong
message to any would-be poachers,"
said FWC investigator Capt. Jeff Ardelean.
"We will find you and hold you account-
able for wildlife law violations." American
alligators are protected under state law. It
is unlawful to kill, injure, capture or pos-
sess, or to attempt to kill, injure, capture
or possess an American alligator without
authorization from the FWC.

Grimsley named House Appropriations chair


TALLAHASSEE House Speaker-des-
ignate Dean Cannon (R-Winter Park) has
named the first two chairs of his incoming
administration, selecting Representative De-
nise Grimsley (R-Lake Placid) as House Ap-
propriations Chair and Representative Gary
Aubuchon (R-Cape Coral) as House Rules
Chair. "Appropriations and Rules are two
areas that require an early start," said Speak-
er-designate Cannon. "We must develop
strategies and options now to prepare for
the Fiscal Year 2011-12 State budget. Simi-
larly, we must identify updates and improve-
ments to the House Rules now to prepare
for their adoption during the November Or-
ganization Session."
"I have chosen Representatives Grims-
ley and Aubuchon for these roles because
of their exceptional talents, their unequaled
work ethics, and their track records of tak-
ing on difficult challenges without seeking
credit or political gain," continued Speaker-
designate Cannon. "Representatives Grims-
ley and Aubuchon are well-known among


our colleagues for their ability to master
complex public policy, for their skill in navi-
gating major bills through the legislative
process and for their willingness to work in
an open and bi-partisan manner. They have
earned these leadership positions because
they have spent their legislative careers do-
ing exceptional work and exemplifying ser-
vant-leadership."
House Appropriations
The House Appropriations Chair leads
the process of crafting the State budget in
the House. "I have asked Representative
Grimsley to conduct a thorough review of
the State budget to ensure that we are direct-
ing our limited resources to our most criti-
cal needs," said Speaker-designate Cannon.
"I have also asked her to continue the steps
taken by the House to improve the clarity of
the budget process."
"I am grateful for this responsibility and
the confidence that Speaker-designate Can-
non has shown in me," said Rep. Grims-
ley. "The conventional wisdom is that our

Thank You
I would like to take the time to give a very
special thank you to Oakbrook of LaBelle.
Oakbrook was the caregiver of my father. JR
Roberts for the last four months of his life.
He passed Aug. 3 of this year.
My father was diagnosed with dementia/
Alzheimers. The office staff Mr. Wayne, An-
dera. Kevin, Keri, Kathy and Kal who helped
me with everything I needed. Oakbrook's
staff went above and beyond to take care
of him and answer any questions that I had.
They explained the different symptoms and
the reasons for my fathers daily change in
behavior.
All the RNs/CNSs were wonderful: Annie,
the head nurse, Anna Thompson, Cheryl
McGee, Mary Jane, Renee, Jennifer, Violet.
All, no matter what shift they worked, would
always keep me informed of how he was
doing during the times I could not be with
him, so that I wouldn't worry and wonder
how he was doing.
Thank you again, Oakbrook, for all you
did to help make my father's last days as
comfortable and pleasant as possible and
for keeping me totally informed.

Witches Brew

by Pudge Lehman
Pour 1/2 cup baking soda and one cup
vinegar into a bowl and put all the faucet
strainers and detachable shower heads you
can round up into it. Let sit for an hour and
rinse. If you can't remove a shower head,
put the solution in a strong plastic bag and
tie it; put the small faucet strainers in, too.
To get meatballs to cook more evenly, pat
the mixture out in a big square and cut, like
brownies, into equal squares. Roll each into
a ball; or leave them in squares.
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to the
bathwater to invigorate and restore the
skin's germ-killing natural acidity.
Serve messy sandwich fillings to children
in pita bread halves.
I love working at the polls on election
day. I get to harass Homer Brewer all day,
and Scott McQueen entertains us with his
super Elvis impression.
My hairdresser, Regina Richardson,
(Please don't judge her, she does the best
she can with what I bring her) says she will
have to work three days after she's dead to
pay her taxes. We all feel that way sweetie...

Hendry sentinel chickens West Nile positive


HENDRY COUNTY-This is to advise that
there has been increased mosquito-borne
disease activity in areas of Hendry County.
Five sentinel chickens in the LaBelle area
have tested positive for West Nile virus. The
risk of transmission to humans has been in-
creased.
The Hendry County Health Department
reminds residents and visitors to avoid be-
ing bitten by mosquitoes that may cause en-
cephalitis disease.
The Hendry County Health Department
will continue with surveillance and encour-
age everyone to take basic precautions to
help limit exposure by following the depart-
ment of health recommendations.
To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you
should remember to practice the "5 D's":
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being outdoors
when mosquitoes are seeking blood.
Dress -Wear clothing that covers most
of your skin.
DEET -When the potential exists for
exposure to mosquitoes, repellents con-
taining up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide) are recommended. Other


effective mosquito repellents include picari-
din, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535.
Some repellents are not suitable for chil-
dren.
Drainage -Check around your home to
rid the area of standing water, where mos-
quitoes lay eggs.
To protect your horses from mosquitoes,
you should.
Consult with your veterinarian on get-
ting your horses vaccinated for EEE and
WNV
Elimination of breeding sites is one of the
keys to prevention.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breeding
Sites
Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty plastic
pots.
Pick up all beverage containers and
cups.
Check tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
Pump out bilges on boats.


Replace water in birdbaths and pet or
other animal feeding dishes at least once a
week.
Change water in plant trays, including
hanging plants, at least once a week.
Remove vegetation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that prevent the flow of
water.
The Florida Department of Health
(FDOH) continues to conduct statewide
surveillance for mosquito borne illnesses,
including West Nile virus infections, Eastern
equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis,
malaria, and dengue.
Please report dead birds via the web site
http://myfwc.com/bird/.

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

September is Prostate Cancer Aware-

According to the
Centers for Disease

of 2010 and approximately 2,590 of them
will die from the disease. Also note that the
death-rate from prostate cancer for African-
American men is nearly three times higher
than for white men.
Because prostate cancer can be cured
if caught early, men who have any of these
risk factors should talk with their healthcare
provider about screening.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments encourages all men to be
aware of the risk factors associated with
developing prostate cancer and to take an
active role in their health. Factors that may
increase the risk of developing prostate can-
cer include:
Age -As a man ages, his risk of
prostate cancer increases. (The average age
of patients at the time of diagnosis is 65)
Family history of prostate cancer
-A man's risk is higher if family members
have had prostate cancer (father, brother or
son)
Race -African-American men have
a nearly 60 percent greater risk of develop-
ing prostate cancer than white men and are

Homeowners warned about Church Briefs


destructive lightning


As insurers and homeowners keep a
close watch on the Atlantic Basin for hur-
ricane activity this summer, the Institute for
Business & Home Safety (IBHS) cautions
people across the nation not to underes-
timate the destructive and deadly force of
thunderstorms and lightning, which occur
far more often and directly affect more of
the U.S. than hurricanes.
According to the National Weather Ser-
vice, every thunderstorm produces light-
ning. On average, 300 people are injured
and 80 people are killed each year in the U.S.
by lightning.
Thunderstorms are a dangerous weath-
er event and their destructive capabilities
should not be taken lightly. Property losses
related to lightning strikes exceed $1 billion
annually, according to insurance industry
data.
For lightning protection, a whole-house/
building surge protector is the best starting
point for reducing the risk of damage. It is
important to make sure that it is either a sec-
ondary surge arrestor tested to IEEE C62.11
or a transient voltage suppressor that has


been tested to UL 1449, 2nd Edition. A num-
ber of power companies have programs to
provide and install the whole-building surge
protection.
However, for best results, the protection
should extend beyond the whole-building
surge protection. IBHS strongly recom-
mends the following:
Install additional protection for impor-
tant or expensive electronic equipment. This
should include localized surge protection
for power cords to the equipment and any
telephone and cable/satellite TV lines con-
necting to the equipment. These devices are
available at most home improvement and
electronics stores.
Have a licensed electrician or competent
home/building inspector review the power,
telephone, electrical and cable/satellite TV
connections to your building. Have them
check to make sure that you have adequate
grounding of the power line connection and
your power distribution panel. All of the util-
ities should enter the structure within 10 feet
of the electrical service entrance ground wire
and be bonded to that grounding point.

Vickie's Lunch Box, real food at great prices


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Cooking is a special joy for Vickie Cock-
ram, fifth generation LaBelle resident. She's
found herself in the kitchen for the past 15
years, cooking at various restaurants in town
and even for the cowboys at Alico Ranch
(and you know how cowboys love their
food!).
Vickie realized a longtime dream on Au-
gust 25, when she opened Vickie's Lunch
Box her very own restaurant.
Vickie, along with her sister, Tiffany Fu-
tch, and Pam Smith, open for breakfast at
5:30 a.m. and don't close till 8 p.m.
Hungry early risers are making their
breakfast sandwiches very popular, Vickie
said. You can also get pancakes, sausage
gravy and biscuits, French toast, omelets or
a breakfast soft taco.
It's all take out call a few minutes in ad-
vance and it'll be ready when you drive up
to the window.
If you'd rather, you can also eat al fresco
at one of the tables outside Vickie's Lunch
Box.
Vickie said she likes the kitchen because
you always have to be ready for the unex-
pected be prepared for the rush. It's all
about planning and organizing, she said.
So far, Vickie's Lunch Box best sellers are
the steak house (prime rib, mushrooms and
onion with cheese) and philly cheese (sliced
steak or chicken with provolone, peppers
and onion) sandwiches, served on a hoagie
roll. All their subs come with one side.
Their regular sandwiches come with a
side and on your choice of bread (white,
wheat, rye, hoagie roll, Texas toast, ham-
burger bun or croissant roll).
They also offer soup and will have a larg-
er variety in the winter.

munity to its Fish Fry every first Friday of the

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

GOP headquarters open
The Republican Party Of Hendry County
Headquarters Office at 200 Main Street will

Saturday each week until further notice.
Please call 863-675-4924 or stop by the of-
fice if you have any questions concerning
candidates, early or absentee voting, voter
registration or election dates.


Vickie is proud of the fact that they serve
all "real food" not the fast food, processed
kind. She said they cook their own turkey
and roast beef as well as chicken for chicken
salad. They also hand cut their French fries.
Even in tough times like these, Vickie
feels she can make it because her prices
are so good. In fact, she said she's even had
several complaints that prices were too low.
She said they can keep prices down because
of their low overhead.


Her cooking philosophy is "Try to keep
everything as real as possible," and her cus-
tomers seem to appreciate it. Vickie said she
learned to cook from mom, grandma and at
all the places she's worked.
Vickie's grandparents are Buddy and Car-
oline Messer; her mother is Connie Perkins.
Her children are Sheldon, 11, Kallie, 9, and
baby John, 16 months.
Vickie's Lunch Box is readywhen you are.

Bennett: Cowboys must


play up to potential


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Over the past several weeks, Coach Hal
Bennett said his Cowboys have not played
up to their potential. Their challenge, he
said, is to find that team that played in the
Spring game, coming from behind to beat
Palmetto Ridge,
The coaching team felt optimistic after
the first half of last Friday night's 43-7 loss
against Bishop Verot. Coach Bennett said if
they came out with a good score from the
kick off, they'd be back in the game.
"I don't know what happened," Coach
Bennett said. "Mistakes were made against
a good football team. We did a lot of posi-
tive things defensively," he said. The Cow-
boys kept the Verot team from making big
plays against them and they forced several
turnovers. In fact, he added, "we had them
almost shocked. We had their offense out
of their comfort zone."
He added that there were issues with
the defensive back field, but the Cowboys
kept the Vikings from making the big runs
and long passes.
Offensively, the Cowboys struggled. Da-
vid Miller's 80-yard touchdown run was the
longest of his career. David Antunez kicked


the extra point against Verot, but then the
LaBelle team faltered and couldn't put it all
together.
This week the defense will be trying a
few new things against Lake Placid. Coach
Bennett believes he has the right combina-
tion of guys on defense, but the team is a
little "beat up," with players injured.
Offensively, they'll be working a little
harder on the little things and putting to-
gether drives. "We've got to keep pushing,
keep striving," he said.
Offensive Player of the Week is David
Miller with 77 yards rushing and 30 yards
receiving (two catches).
Defensive Player of the Week Alejandro
Moreno turned in six solo tackles and one
assisted tackle, one sack and two quarter-
back hurries.
Special Teams Player of the Week Chris
Garcia averaged 38.6 yards per punt.
Practice Player of the Week, senior Ray-
mond Johnson, never complains, coach
said, and is always ready to give it every-
thing he's got.
This Friday LaBelle will take on Lake
Placid at home in its first district game of
the season. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
The JV teams plays Clewiston away on
Thursday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.

a number of less experienced sixth and sev-
enth graders on her "B" team (JV).
"We have a very optimistic team that is
hopeful and is expecting an undefeated sea-
son," said Culliver-Thomas, a 1987 graduate
of LaBelle High School who attended Palm
Beach Community College on a softball
scholarship. "We're not only a team, but
a multi-cultural family that plays and prays
together."
Cullier-Thomas' assistant coach is Lisa
Dobbins, a 1995 LaBelle High School grad
who played prep volleyball and is in her first
year of coaching the sport.


Blood Drive
There were 33 participants in the Sept. 9 community blood drive. Among
them was Donna Meister, who has been a donor for six years. Why does she
do it? She saves three lives with just one donation.

If the remainder of the LaBelle Middle
School football team's 2010 season is go-
ing to be anything like its opener Sept. 16,
fans had better get used to sitting on the
edge of their seats.
The Broncos came from behind to de-
feat Evangelical Christian School 42-34 in
overtime. Playing both running back and
quarterback, Jose Lopez scored five touch-
downs and fullback Ryan Drapal added a
rushing TD.
Standouts on defense included corner-
back Jesse Pequeno, defensive end Steven
Miller and middle guard Alan Varela.
"It was a very exciting game," said Rod-
ney Dayton, in his second year as head
coach and third year overall with the team.
"The kids did a great job of coming back
after we got burned by a couple of long
pass plays, and assistant coach Scott An-
derson called a great game."
Dayton said that all team members
contributed to the victory. They are Justin
Alderman, Daulton Alexander, A.J. Ayala,


LMS Broncos ride hard over ECS


Alejandro Betancourt, Nick Browning,
Glenn Burton, Sergio Bustamante, Jesus
Cavazos, Toby Clements and Garrett Cok-
er. Others are Narciso Flores, Homer Gar-
cia, Jr., Erick Hernandez, Felix Hernandez,
Blaine Howell, Dalton Hyser, Danny Keller,
Austin Mansfield, Baylen McCormick, Tyler
Music, Alec Olvera, Michael Pepitone, Jack
Rivas, Hector Rodriguez, Steve Storey, Tra-
vis Sullivan and Alfred Williams.
Dayton said that because there are not
many middle schools in the immediate
area, scheduling games can be a chal-
lenge.
"We call quite a few schools to try to
schedule as many games as possible," said
Dayton, who played middle school football
in Gainesville and high school football in
Los Angeles.
The Broncos run a basic I-formation on
offense and line up defensively with five
linemen and three linebackers.
LaBelle will continue its six-game sea-
son Sept. 23 against Moore Haven.

LES starts

another year

day night with their annual spaghetti

joyed before visiting with teachers
in their classrooms. Success of this
event is due to the hard work of teach-
ers and staff of LES and the dedicated
members of the Rotary sharing their
time and resources. LaBelle Elemen-
