Veterans Day: About honor, sacrifice


by Tony Alvarez
American LegionsPost 130 Commander
Since the Revolution, an unbroken chain of
Americans have served well and faithfully in
the military. Even today, brave young men and
women are still answering that call to duty and
honor. Veterans Day stands apart, a day desig-
nated to remember and honor all those who
have served. In times of war, the message of
Veterans Day comes across even more pow-
erfully. This story is about a young man who
lived in LaBelle for a time over 40 years ago.
Like so many Americans, he joined those who
answered his country's call. Nicholas Cutinha
never came back from the jungles of Viet Nam
- but he made it possible for others to come
home.
It is no secret here in LaBelle, that Ameri-
can Legion Post 130 is the proud caretaker
of U.S. Army Specialist Fourth Class Nicholas
Cutinha's Medal of Honor. On March 2, 1968,
in the Republic of Vietnam near Gia Dinh,
Nicholas was killed in action while serving as
a machine gunner with Company C 4th Battal-
ion, 9th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Divi-
sion. Two years later on April 7, 1970, President
Richard M. Nixon presented his family with
the Medal of Honor. This information is very
well documented in the Citation delivered by
President Nixon. As stated by a well-known
news commentator Paul Harvey, "here is the
rest of the story."
The Cutinha family as expected took the
news of Nicholas' death very hard and as a

result decided to allow Post 130 the honor of
caring for Nicholas' Medals. For many years
the Post displayed the Medal at Veterans
events and during the Medal of Honor Cer-
emony, however the Medal; was not on per-
manent display due to U.S. Army regulations


on how the Medal was to be displayed and the
level of protection needed to publicly display

Mobile mammography coming


Community Briefs


Southwest FL-Radiology Regional Center
is pleased to announce digital mobile mam-
mography to Southwest Florida in their con-
tinued commitment to battle breast cancer.
The mission of the Mobile Mammo pro-
gram is to provide easily accessible breast
screening, for women that are asymptomat-
ic and are in need of their annual mammo-
gram. The unit will be stationed at LaBelle
Chamber of Commerce Nov. 16, from 10
a.m.- 2 p.m.
Cost of the mammogram is $150, but the
Radiology Regional Center also works with
Lucy's Angels to provide mammograms for
women in Hendry and Glades under 50 who

money so that Nicholas' Medal could be dis-
played permanently and in accordance with
U.S. Army regulations.
The Medal had to be encased in a locked
alarmed showcase cabinet constructed of
bulletproof/shatterproof glass and could not
be moved.
On November 22, 2008, Post 130 unveiled
the Medal of Honor Display Case in the Post
Hall, in addition Post 130 members along
with DAV, VFW and dignitaries from Hendry
County presented Honors at the gravesite of
Nicholas Cutinha at the Fort Denaud Cem-
etery.
The story continues: The Post was unfor-
tunately unable to contact any of the Cutinha
Family, but we did contact some of Nicholas'
former Company C members. This started a
chain reaction that developed into an over-
whelming surprise.
I received an email from a Dan McKin-
ney from Effingham, IL who stated that he
would be visiting family in Southwest Flor-
ida and would like to visit the Post and see
Nicholas' Medal of Honor. Dan served with
Nicholas and was wounded in action on the
fatal day on which Nicholas made the ulti-
mate sacrifice.
Dan also wanted to see if he could meet
anyone from Nicholas' family so he could
personally pay his respects. We informed
him that we were unable to contact any of
the Cutinha family but that many Post mem-
bers were looking forward to his visit. So, on
February 25th 2010 Dan McKinney arrived at
Post 130 along with his brothers, also Vet-
erans.
While we were engrossed in conversa-
tion a gentlemen walked in, out of the blue,
and also asked to see the Medal of Honor
Display Case.
When he introduced himself to us we
were floored; for some reason Roy Cutinha,
Nicholas' brother and only living relative
decided to visit the Post. It was a moment
of pure emotion for us at Post 130 and Dan
McKinney, who has long waited 42 years to
pay his respects in person to the family of
U.S. Army Specialist Fourth Class Nicholas
Cutinha, Medal of Honor Recipient. God
does work in mysterious ways.
Nicholas' Medal of Honor is on perma-
nent display at American Legion Post 130
Hall and is open to the public.
God Bless America and especially the
men and women that defend her.

Mobile Mammo provides state of the art
full field digital mammography which will
be analyzed by computer-aided detection,
and read by our local, board-certified radi-
ologists, including fellowship-trained wom-
en's imagers.
This team of dedicated radiologists and
registered technologists, along with qual-
ity imaging, has earned Radiology Regional
Center the distinction of a Breast Center of
Excellence by the American College of Ra-
diology.
Now, the same exceptional service avail-
able in our centers is made convenient for
communities, businesses, and events.
According to estimates from the Ameri-
can Cancer Society, one in eight women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer. More im-
portantly, with early detection, the survival
rate for an early diagnosed breast cancer at
five years is better than 97 percent.
Mammography is one aspect of breast
health, in addition to monthly self-exam and
annual physician exam. The ability to walk-
in or schedule ahead for minutes of preven-
tative healthcare puts the patient first in a
fast-paced world.

Ft. Denaud Patrol plans
Neighborhood Watch
Neighborhood has seen an increase in
crime in recent years. Examples include
recent home invasions, theft and vandal-
ism. Many residents have expressed interest
in a sustainable, long term, relevant neigh-
borhood watch/patrol network for the Ft.
Denaud area. In order to have strength in
numbers, they are attempting to organize a
block watch network for the entire Ft. De-
naud area.
Anyone interested is encouraged to at-
tend the next meeting on Wednesday, Nov.
17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office conference room.
Please come to the meeting to learn,
share and find out how you can help bring
safety back to your neighborhood.

Decorate for Boat Parade
What's this? You don't think Christmas
Boat Parades are your 'cup of tea'? Well, if
it's just because you really aren't sure how
to go about HOW to decorate your boat, we
have just the thing!
How.com was kind enough to post how-
to directions on decorating your boat to the
full extent and to the benefit of our beautiful
animals!!!
Decorating plan for your boat. Decide if
there is enough room for a Christmas tree;
make sure it doesn't block the captain's view
so he can safely navigate. Decide if you can


use plug in Christmas lights or if you need
battery operated lights. Decide on the type
of decorations you want to use. For instance,
it may be a themed Christmas boat parade
requiring special decorations. Keep in mind
that the decorations need to be visible from
the shore. Small decorations are difficult to
see.
2. Buy only decorations and Christmas
lights that are rated for outdoor use. If you
are using battery-operated lights, make
sure you have plenty of batteries on hand.
Be sure to check each string of lights before
you hang them. Remember that both sides
of the boat will be seen if you are making a
circle during the Christmas boat parade. The
Christmas tree or Santa Claus on a sleigh
should be placed high on the boat and in
the center, where it can be seen from both
sides.
3. Use rope lights whenever possible on
your boat. Rope lights are easier to string
and won't get caught on netting or small
items. Use bright colored or white lights be-
cause the lights will be the background for
the rest of your decorations. People watch-
ing the boat parade are usually far away and
can only see decorations that are brightly lit.
4. Decorate with two or three color com-
binations only. If you use too many colors,
the whole boat will become a blur to the
spectators because of the reflection on the
water. Place a few more strings of lights
to outline the shape of your boat, and the
whole decorating scheme will become clear
to those viewing the Christmas boat parade.

Thanks for participating!

No hoodies
Hoodies are an unnecessary classroom
distraction. School rules at LMS states hood-
ed jacket, sweaters and coats are prohibited.
This rule was instated because administra-
tion found that these items have become a
distraction in the classroom. Students flip up
the hoods of others as they walk by. Other
students use their hoodies to hide them-
selves by keeping the hoods up. Still others
use these as a pillow to try to sleep on during
class. Companies that make these hoodies
have even made hoodies that zip all the way
up, covering the student's entire face! Par-
ents and family members can help their stu-
dents by purchasing jackets that are school
appropriate. This will allow students, teach-
ers and administration to focus on providing
the best possible education for all students.
LMS is always accepting donations of jackets
and collared shirts for students in need.

Rules for yard waste pick up
The proposed pick up rules for rural resi-
dential yard waste are an absolute joke. We
live on 5 plus acres with numerous plant,
trees and acres of grass, which require con-
stant up keep. We have always cut branches
to the required length and piled other yard
waste for easy pick up. Now we have to bag
all such items or tie them in bunches not to
exceed 44 pounds?
A do they want to supply the bags?; B -
Don't forget a weight scale; and C- Replace
the garbage cans that are destroyed on a reg-
ular basis? Are we going to get a reduction in
our yearly fee for the reduction in service to
us and the increase in costs to us?
Did the county commissioners have any
idea whatsoever of the costs they have cre-
ated for those of us who are truly living in
what is R/R, such as Case Road, Evans road
and other outlying areas?
These are roads that were changed from
Ag to R/R2 without notice to a lot of the old
timers that have lived there for many, many
vears.

CDC: Teen drivers at risk in motor crashes


by Pat Dobbins
Getting a driver license is probably the
most eagerly awaited event in the life of
most teenagers, but it's usually the most
dreaded event for their parents. After all,
while a driver license is a badge of freedom,
it brings with it tremendous risk: Car crashes
are the leading cause of death for teens.
In spite of the safety advances of the last
few decades -- seatbelts, airbags, improved
crash standards -- teen driver death rates re-
main unacceptably high. According to the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), motor vehicle crashes are the lead-
ing cause of death for U.S. teens. It's hard
to believe, but on average, eight teens ages
16-19 die every day from motor vehicle inju-
ries. In 2009, over 3,000 teens in the United
States aged 15 19 were killed and more than


350,000 were treated in emergency depart-
ments for injuries as a result of motor ve-
hicle crashes.
Young drivers increasingly die in groups.
Young drivers are more prone to driver dis-
tractions, reducing their
ability to react quickly and
correctly to trouble. Along
with carrying several pas-
sengers, other dangers
include texting, talking
on the phone, drinking,
speeding and playing loud
music. The risk of motor
vehicle crashes is higher Patricia
among 16- to 19-year-olds Dobbins
than among any other age
group.
According to a recent study from theoCDC,


Letter to the Editor


Put up or shut up
Well, we had a change of power in our
Congress. Now the Republicans control, so
let's see if there is any change in what hap-
pens. Both parties like to blame the other for
nothing getting accomplished.
I think the votes showed our elected offi-
cials that we are tired of nothing being done
to better life in the USA.
I would like to have heard the President
comment on getting jobs back for our auto
and steel industries. No president can fix in
four years what our Congress has messed
up for 20 years.
We import beef, grain, fruit, steel and
many other items from foreign countries.
They then sell their products cheaper than
our own USA-made products
Farmers and grove owners struggle to
stay competitive because of concessions our
Congress has given the foreign market.
If we want to get our jobs back in the
USA, we have to make it non-profitable for
our big business people to make products
overseas and ship them back to the US for
sale. The North American Trade Agreement
killed industry and farming in the US.
Our farmers got paid not to grow grain
because we import it. That don't make sense
to me. Let them grow what they can give
them a fair price for it sell it overseas.
Beef and fruit growers face the same
problems with overseas products being sold

in the US. The Congress lets the fruit and
beef be imported at costs our own people
can't compete with.
As for illegal workers in the US goes, un-
til our own people will work their jobs, we
need them. Make it possible for them to be
in the US legally let them pay taxes, Make
Mexico pay for any illegals sent back.
The real problem is the Mexican govern-
ment. Stop imports and aid to Mexico until
their government shows an effort to provide
jobs for its own people. Remove the drug
cartel any way necessary. Drone aircraft
could spray the drug fields and kill all the
plants without any danger to any one. I see
no reason Mexico would object to that.
As far as foreign aid our country needs
help as bad as anyone. If we want to see
America back to where we were in the '60s
and '70s, we need to focus on jobs (good
jobs) for Americans in the USA. I was al-
ways told to take care of your own before
you worry about anything else. That seems
reasonable to me. But then I'm just a old citi-
fied country boy.
It's time we forget about Democratic and
Republican parties and who gets credit for
fixing our problems. We need one party for
the people.
That's all I have to say for now.

among teen drivers, those at especially high
risk for motor vehicle crashes are:
Males: In 2006, the motor vehicle death
rate for male drivers and passengers ages 15-
19 was almost two times that of their female
counterparts.
Teens driving with teen passengers:
The presence of teen passengers increases
the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers.
This risk increases with the number of teen
passengers.
Compared with other age groups, teens
have the lowest rate of seat belt use. In 2005,
10 percent of high school students reported
they rarely or never wear seat belts when
riding with someone else.
Male high school students (12.5 per-
cent) were more likely than female students
(7.8 percent) to rarely or never wear seat
belts.
Compared with other age groups, teens
have the lowest rate of seat belt use.
African-American students (12 per-
cent) and Hispanic students (13 percent)
were more likely than white students (10.1
percent) to rarely or never wear seat belts.
In a national survey conducted in 2007,
nearly three out of ten teens reported that,
within the previous month, they had ridden
with a driver who had been drinking alco-
hol. One in ten reported having driven after
drinking alcohol within the same one-month
period.

Car crashes are the leading
cause of death for teens.


In 2008, nearly three out of every four
teen drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes
after drinking and driving were not wearing
a seat belt.
In 2008, half of teen deaths from mo-
tor vehicle crashes occurred between 3 p.m.
and midnight and 56 percent occurred on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Don't be afraid to talk to your teen about
safe driving. Allow them to take Driver's
Education if it's offered at their high school.
Ask your vehicle insurance company about
programs available to teach teens about safe
driving tips. Most of all, remember that what
you do affects your teen! They learn some
of their driving habits from watching what
you do. Help to teach them to be safe and
responsible drivers.


We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust

live and work, through our dedication to consci-
entious journalism.

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Caring young
man
Ten-year-old Brent Hicks
is a fourth grader at West
Glades School and the son
of Wayne and Tammy Hicks.
Like most young boys he
loves football is a left guard
for the LaBelle Longhorns
Mitey Mites. He has no idea
what he wants to do when he
grows up, but he knows what
he wants to do now. Brent
has taken it upon himself to
have a car wash to benefit
cancer patients. His grand-
mother, Dot Crosby, died of
cancer a couple years ago.
Brent just remembers that
she was "real sick." He also
knows that the disease even
strikes kids. So it was his
idea to have a car wash he
says he likes to wash cars
anyway. Look for this caring
and industrious young man
at U-Save Saturday, Nov,
13, beginning at 10 a.m. He
said he'll go on as long as
somebody wants their car
washed. He has not set an
amount just donate what-
ever you can.

"We'll use some of the money to take the
kids out to dinner before the District Cham-
pionship," said Jef Frost, head varsity coach
for the girls and boys teams. "They have
worked very hard this year and deserve a re-
ward. I want to thank all of our sponsors and
volunteers in the LaBelle community who
donated refreshments, door prizes, time or
money toward this event."
Ashley Golemme was the first overall fe-
male finisher with a time of 21:52. In the
female 11-14 age division, Esmeralda Ro-
driguez was first (23:11), Tess Frost second

Cowboy pride survives


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle may have lost the game Nov.
5 against Island Coast, but Cowboy pride
survived loud and proud. Although they
suffered a 48-10 defeat, Cowboy Head
Coach Hal Bennett was impressed with his
team's performance against Island Coast
"Obviously, it wasn't the turn out we
wanted," he noted, "but it's been a long
time since we faced a team with that kind
of talent. Island Coast has five Division 1 re-
cruits and a running back who is one of the
best I've ever seen. But our kids continued
to battle. the score could have been 60-10,"
he said, adding that Island Coast beat oth-
ers by an average of 55 points.
Coach Bennett pointed proudly to nu-
merous "small victories" in the game. For
instance, the Cowboys scored the most
points on their opponents of any team in
the district this year. He said that LaBelle
and Dunbar were the only teams in the Dis-
trict to score on them.
"I'm impressed," he said, "our boys did
not back down ... They started out a little
timid at first, but got some good defensive
hits." He had particular praise for his spe-
cial teams. Their hard work led to LaBelle's
points. They made opportunities to score
-and the fans got to see their Cowboys
play hard for four quarters.
"The kids knew they faced a superior
team. Last year Island Coast beat LaBelle
57-0 because we didn't try," he said. This
year a second quarter kick off return
earned a TD.
Special Teams Player of the Week:
David Antunez turned in a 82-yard kick off
return for a touchdown. It was his third kick


and Sarah Lapp third (31:27).
In the female 20-29 division, Irene Garza
was first (23:06), while in the female 30-39
division, Amanda Howard was first (27:16),
Tanya Podubynskyj second (33:26) and Hei-
di Ingram third (34:43). In the female 40-49
division, Anastacia Moreno was first (24:43),
Michelle Bennett second (27:33) and Judy
Lapp third (28:35). In the female 50-59 divi-
sion, Mary Lee Baker was first (42:14).
Cesar Mateo was the first overall male
finisher (20:51). In the male 11-14 division,
Esteban Plaza was first (24:15) and John
Walker second (33:06). In the male 15-19
division, Reyes Aguilar was first (22:08) and
Chris Timms second (30:28). In the male
30-39 division, William Podubynsyj was first
(31:28), while in the male 40-49 division,
Jason Walker was first (33:42). In the male
50-59 division, Manuel Moreno was first
(23:52), Gary Flint second (26:38) and Andy
Higginbotham third (38:26).

By placing fourth in the District meet,
the LaBelle High School boys cross-coun-

off return this season for a TD a school
record in a single season. The whole kick
off return unit is the best special team the
Cowboys have had in a long time, Coach
Bennett said. They chalked up another 32-
yard kick off return to set up good field po-
sition, he added.
Offensive Player of the Week: Der-
rick Bass, Every week he gets noticeably
better, coach said. He faced four All Divi-
sion receivers and did not lose his compo-
sure, forcing Island Coast to make tough
throws. He hung in there and led his team
in adversity.
Defensive Player of the Week: Chris
Garcia normally does not start on defense,
but the coaches brought the senior strong
safety in for extra speed. He did a lot of good
things helped get the ball, had six tackles,
one forced fumble for a good return; put
their quarterback under pressures, forcing
him to throw early and incomplete passes.
Practice Player of the Week: Fresh-
man Jonathan Rodriguez' motor never
quits, coach said, and he tries to make the
first team better. "He's going to be a good
football player in the future," coach added,
praising his work ethic. "He goes wide
open," Coach Bennett said.
The Cowboys' last game of the season
is away this Friday, against the perennial
powerhouse, Riverdale. This year River-
dale is struggling, Coach Bennett said. At
the Fellowship of Christian Athletes foot-
ball camp in Ave Maria this past summer
the Cowboys dominated North Fort Myers,
he said, noting that NFM beat Riverdale this
year.
"We can go after them," coach said,
"we see this game as a potential victory."

dents began October 25. Open registration

"For the first time, our campus will offer
courses from two of the baccalaureate pro-
grams," said Kristen Zimmerman, Associate
Dean, Baccalaureate Programs. "Having
these courses available better serves the in-
creasing demand we have from our students
who wish to earn a bachelor degree."
Courses offered will be for the Bachelor
of Applied Science in Supervision and Man-


agement and for the Bachelor of Science in
Elementary Education. Students interested
in a teacher certification or additional edu-
cational degrees can also benefit from these
courses.
Registration is available online at www.
edison.edu or in person at the Collier County
campus by January 7, 2011, in order to avoid
late registration fees. Additional information

November is Diabetes Month


Diabetes affects your body from head
to toes. This includes your eyes. The most
common and most serious eye complica-
tions of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy,
which may result in poor vision or blind-
ness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for
damage to the tiny blood vessels (capillar-
ies) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the
back of your eye that captures light and re-
lays information to your brain. These blood
vessels are often affected by the high blood
sugar levels associated with diabetes.
Nearly half of people with known dia-
betes have some degree of diabetic retin-
opathy. The longer you have diabetes, the


more likely it is you'll develop diabetic
retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild
vision problems. But, the condition can
worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But,
with early detection and treatment, the risk
of sever vision loss from diabetic retinopa-
thy is small. At Family Eye care, we provide
dilated eye examinations to thoroughly as-
sess ocular health to prevent the develop-
ment of ocular and medical complications
of diabetes. Please call our office at (863)
675-0761 for more information or to set-up
and appointment.

too long in the pan it won't fall out. Put it
on a very low heat stove burner for a few
minutes or blast the pan bottom with a hair

boil-overs. Pour salt on the icky stuff and
continue baking. This will cut the smoke
and subsequent clean-up greatly. Later it will
scrape off easily.
If you are having a crowd for Thanksgiv-
ing think about cooking two small turkeys
instead of one huge one.
Latest favorite quote: If you can't be a
good example-then you'll have to be a hor-
rible warning.
