Time off for county workers


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
As part of the county's belt tightening moves,
many county employees will be required to take
a furlough Dec. 20, 21 and 22, Each Constitutional
officer will make the decision for their own de-
partment about which positions will take leave
during those days.
Commissioners approved the move at the Nov.
9 meeting in Pioneer Plantation. They discussed
the cost saving plan during budget workshops
earlier this year. That time off will count against
their sick time. The move is also expected to gar-
ner savings in transportation costs. For employees,
the plan offers more leisure time for the holidays.
County Administrator Judi Kenninngton-Korf
said the Constitutional officers are mainly in sup-
port of the plan. The chief judge will be consulted

Legislative Priorities
The four-laning of SR 80 continues to be Hen-
dry County's top legislative priority. The commis-
sion is seeking $5.3 million for right-of-way acqui-
sition from Birchwood Parkway to Dalton Lane.
Eventually, the highway is to be four-laned the
entire way from LaBelle to US 27.
Another $3 million is sought to extend Helms
Road from SR 29 west to SR 80. The construction
will alleviate traffic on Cowboy Way and allow for
construction of a new Edison State College cam-
pus at the intersection of SR 80 and Helms Road.
The county is also looking toward receiv-
ing federal and state appropriations and grants

In Peace and War
Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
At VFW 10100 Veterans Day ceremonies, George
Albert Sr., US Army WWII, reflects at the wreath
placed by auxiliary members honoring those lost
in service to America. A Boston native, Mr. Albert
lives in Ortona. He was stationed at Fort Jack-
son, SC, in 1943 where German POWs acciden-
tally dropped a 55-gallon drum on him, causing
permanent leg damage. Mr. Albert moved on to
a very interesting career, including serving as an
aide to Sen. JF Kennedy in 1960. On the day his
son was born, he drove 100 miles to get to the
senator in time for duty after the birth. Mr. Albert
was commander of the Irwin W. Adams Post 36 in
Boston and is the Great and Elder of the post.
Vivian Carlough said she thinks about a lot of
people she knew some still here, some gone.
Her husband spent a year in a German POW camp
during WW II until he was part of a prisoner ex-
change. She said she got through it by just keep-
ing the faith and going on. After his release he
came home, but was redeployed. Ms. Carlough
has been a LaBelle resident for 20 years. "Boots"
David is a Korean War veteran who lost his best
friend there in 1953. After losing so much, he still
says, "I'd do it all over again." He believes that

Pulling weeds,

sowing hope
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The Good Neighbors continue to live up
to their name. Recently, the group's desig-
nated handyman, known only as Dave, paid
a visit to John and Jean Gery. The couple has
been struggling with making ends meet and
getting some of the more strenuous things
done around the house.
At 88, John has done many things, in-
cluding defending this country during World
War II. Since then he has faced and beaten
cancer four times.
John and Jean are both Pentecostal min-
isters.
Jean had a prison ministry at Hendry
County before she got sick. Awhile back she
had heart surgery to replace a faulty valve.
Feeling much better, she wants to get back
to it as soon as she can.
John worked with an evangelist and also
found ministering in the jail rewarding. Both
have done door-to-door witnessing to lead
people to Jesus.
John loves to garden. He said it keeps

him busy and gives him a reason to get up
in the morning. He is justifiably proud of the
roses, bougainvillea, lilies and papaya that
dot their yard. He said his favorite are the
hibiscus because he loves the bright colors.
Last winter, a lot of their precious plants
froze, but many came back. Time was,
when John could just get out there and re-
plant.
Nowadays, he doesn't have the stamina
he used to. He can't stay out in the heat so
long any more. John started his garden a
while back, but health issues held up his
progress and it got out of hand. He just
could not keep up with the flowers and veg-
etables and, of course, the weeds.
So the Good Neighbor group stepped
in and sent Handyman Dave, along with a
helper, over ready hands that laid down
stones under the gutters to keep the soil
from washing away and then started pulling
up weeds.
Of course, John was right there pulling
weeds too as long as he was able, with Jean
carefully monitoring the heat and making
sure he didn't stay out too long.
John hadn't made up his mind exactly
what he was going to plant yet, but he fig-


ured peppers, onions and carrots would be
a good start.
In any case, the Gerys got their garden in
again this year and they're looking forward
to getting back to their ministry.
The Gerys have been struggling, but re-
main strong in their faith in God. Jean said,
"He is good to us. We're trying to get the
mortgage down, but we "squeeze by." We
do everything together," she added.
The Good Neighbors choose someone in
the community a good solid resident who
has worked hard and been an example of
good living that needs a little help.
The group's contact person gets in touch
with their chosen handyman, known only
as "David," and gives him the information
on the neighbor of the month.
David receives a cashiers check from the
group for his work and is under strict orders
not to accept tips or gratuities of any kind.
There is no number to call; you can't sign
up for the Good Neighbors' help.
The Good Neighbors are an anonymous
group dedicated to helping out those who
live good lives and are in need of a little
help.

"Handyman Dave" gives a big hand to John Gery, weeding and preparing a plot
for his beloved garden. The Good Neighbors seek out deserving residents for
whom to provide "random acts of kindness."

History, drama, the vote

The LaBelle Heritage Museum will have
a special presentation of Laurie Nienhaus
appearing as women's rights activist Al-
ice Paul in "Mr. President, How Long Must
Women Wait for Liberty?" Friday, Dec. 3, at
the LaBelle Firehouse Cultural Center, 241
N. Bridge Street, at 7 p.m. A $6 a person
charge will help defray expenses.
Alice Paul and her National Women's
Party picketed the White House and orga-
nized hunger strikes. This presentation is
an amusing and dramatic look at the tactics
and strategies of the daring and charismatic
woman who organized the non-violent civil
disobedience in our country. Celebrate the
90th Anniversary of the Adoption of the 19th
Amendment, which gave women the vote.

Drug facts: Kids and dangerous games


Though having a slightly under par turn-
out, the Drug Free Hendry County Coalition
and Tobacco-Free Partnership Town Hall
meeting still generated ideas and informed
those who attended the meeting on Nov. 10
at the LaBelle High School auditorium and
Nov. 11 at Clewiston High School audito-
rium.
Coalition and Partnership organizers
reached out to the schools by sending out
notifications to every parent that has a
school aged child in Hendry County and by
distributing flyers and posters to other com-
munity agencies.
The Town Halls were a two-part session
with the adults receiving a presentation fol-
lowed with a question and answer period
where youth and adults could ask questions
to a local panel of experts.
Special guest speaker Marc Fomby, CEO
of FTC Prevention Services, provided the
adult and youth presentations. He also gave
two presentations at Clewiston High School
and three presentations at LaBelle Middle
School.
His last trip to the area was two years ago
and he was invited back by Valarie James,
Tobacco Prevention Specialist for Hendry
County.

Arrests

LaBelle
Mario Caballero, 31, was arrested Nov.
13 and charged with battery on an officer,
firefighter, EMT, etc., and resisting an officer
with violence. D. White was arresting offi-
cer.
Clewiston
Robert Portello, 25, was arrested Nov. 12
and charged with possession of marijuana
with intent to sell, manufacture, deliver,
etc. schedule I and possession of narcotics
equipment. CPD Officer Pilon was arresting
officer.
Eric Omar Esparza, 18, was arrested
Nov. 11 and charged with possession of co-
caine and possession of marijuana under 20
grams. CPD Officer M. Thomas was arrest-
ing officer.
Moleana Maria Mora, 35, was arrested
Nov. 10 and charged with driving with a sus-
pended license revoked habitual. SPD Of-
ficer D. Davis was arresting officer.


His goal is to keep the awareness level
up of all the dangers of alcohol, drugs and
smoking.
"I'm happy to be back in the area with
new topics of discussion," said Marc Fomby.
"I love doing what I do; no matter the size of
the crowd."
His topic for the evening was targeted at
informing parents of the dangerous games
children play and how they can lead to ac-
cidental death of children.
This session was strictly for adults as
most of the topics discussed were explicit in
nature.
Some of the topics discussed were
code words for drugs and other addictive
substances, issues of a sexual nature and
the very real child victims of the "Choking
Game."
The "Choking Game" is a deadly game
where children will intentionally choke
themselves until they achieve a euphoric
high due to the lack of oxygen.
Another use of the game is when one
child will choke another on a dare to see
who chickens out first.
The dangers of this game are quite obvi-
ous because one can pass out while still hav-
ing pressure around the throat; which can
lead to accidental strangulation.
Many children have done this to them-
selves and have accidentally strangled them-
selves.
When they are found by their parents, it
is mistaken for a suicide.


Other guests in attendance for the Town
Hall meeting were the doctors Haitham and
Ayman Khaki, Hendry County Sheriff Steve
Whidden, Hendry County Circuit Judge
Hon. James Sloan and Detective Curtis Clay
(Clewiston PD).
They gave valuable insight the Q and A
session into the dangers of the over-availabil-
ity of pain medication in the state of Florida.
Sheriff Whidden gave vital information
on what they have seen in Hendry County
with the introduction of the new pain man-
agement clinics, K2 and other drug use.
Judge Sloan explained about what he
sees in drug court and how he processes
repeat offenders and Det. Clay provided in-
formation on what he sees in the Clewiston
area.
Most of these clinics are run by certified
doctors that see 60-70 patients per day on a
cash-only basis.
Often times, there is no patient screen-
ing and a prescription for pain medication is
given without any follow-up.
Both the doctors Khaki and Mary Prouty,
of the Hendry/Glades County Health Depart-
ment, reiterated the fact there need to be
regulations made and enforced regarding
pain management centers.
Another disturbing fact brought up in the
discussions was that there are more DEA
agents in Florida than any other state.


National

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 (capil-
laries) that nourish the retina, the tissue
at the back of your eye that captures light
and relays 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
retinopathy is small. At Family Eye care,
we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to pre-
vent the development of ocular and med-
ical complications of diabetes. Please call
our office at (863) 675-0761 for more in-
formation or to set-up and appointment.

Letter to the Editor


Case management/pretrial
release issues
I understand that much misinformation
is being circulated regarding the case man-
agement/pretrial release programs. I do not
intend to address anyone's opinions regard-
ing these programs because they are simply
that, opinions. Rather I will deal with the
facts.
Fact: These programs are NOT funded
with tax revenues. They are funded with
court costs collected from criminal defen-
dants. As permitted by Florida Statutes an
extra $65 was added to court costs so that
criminal defendants would be bearing the
burden of funding improvements to the
court system.
Fact: By law, these funds can only be
used for the following four designated uses:
1. Funding teen court programs (which
we have and are funding)
2. Providing a law library (The Clerk of
Court provides internet access to the public
for legal research)
3. Funding a legal aid program (which we
do not have in Hendry County and could not
afford given the current revenue limitations)
4. Funding innovations to the court sys-


The money cannot be used for any other
purposes. It cannot be used to repair streets,
buy sheriff's department cars, install street
lighting or any other purpose other than
those outlined above. If it is not used for
those purposes, it sits unused.
Fact: Every dollar that is saved through
these programs is a tax dollar saved. If the
sheriff does not have to house an inmate,
whether through pretrial release or because
the time between arrest and trial is short-
ened, he saves money from his budget.
Those are tax dollars. If the state attorney
can reduce the number of times they have
to appear in court or can bring a case to
trial in less time, they save money because
their budgets are funded through tax dollars.
Ironically, none of the dollars saved comes
back to the court directly but rather are real-
ized by other agencies.
Fact: NO ONE is being paid a salary of
$60,000. The salary being paid to the indi-
vidual hired in this position is $36,264. That
is the same starting salary which is paid to
the other case managers in the 20th Circuit.
I trust this information helps the public to
understand financing of these programs.
Sincerely,
James D. Sloan
County Judge

McCarthy says farewell


It is with mixed emotions that I leave
with these final comments. Gladness that I
will have more time to spend with my fam-
ily. Comfort that we have a great staff and
Commission looking out for our County;
and sadness to not have the sometimes daily
interaction with the people here tonight.
I would like to thank the Citizens of Hen-
dry County for allowing me to serve them
for the last 8 years. Although we get paid
$30,000 per year to do this job I can assure
you that the hourly rate is not very good. The
reason I have put my heart, my time and my
effort into this is to make Hendry County a
better place to live; and I am convinced that
all of the Commissioners sitting here today
and my replacement Al Perry have the same
goal.
I also believe that we have made great
progress in spite of the Great Recession and
the decline of our main industry, Agriculture,
due to Federal Government policies that are
beyond our control. We are poor but debt
free. We have the highest unemployment
rate in the state and we are the 6th most dis-
tressed County in the Country; but we have
been planning and working and building
infrastructure so that we can grow, and we
have been setting policies in place that will
insure that when we do grow it will be a bet-
ter place for our residents.
Most of my goals when I got on the Com-
mission are not complete; but all are under
way. Three women, Francis, Jeanne and
Wilma and Hurricane Crist have changed
our priorities and had a lasting impact on
our County.
We have gotten DOT to start the 4 laning
of SR80 and most importantly construction
will begin within 2 years on the intersec-
tion of 27 and 80, which will eliminate the
most dangerous intersection not only in our
County but in the five County area; and the
4 laning will continue creating jobs in our
County.
Edison has opened its own campus in
LaBelle and is expanding, which bring ad-
ditional jobs, training and job opportunities
to Hendry County.
Hendry Regional is expanding in Clewis-
ton and LaBelle to provide better health care
to our residents, which also provides jobs
and makes us more attractive to business.
We have continued to develop Airglades
Airport, the single greatest opportunity for
sustained growth and new jobs in Hen-

Our Purpose...
The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a unique
trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of
journalistic service to the citizens of the community.
Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive
on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax
surpluses are reinvested in Independent's mission of jour-
nalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the
community's deliberation of public issues.


dry County today, and are working hard to
bring a large cargo facility to that airport. We
continue to work to bring business into the
County with our support of the EDC and the
expertise of an excellent CEO, Roger Harri-
son.
We began a strategic planning process to
give the Commission and staff an opportu-
nity to reach consensus and set a path for
the County over the next several years.
We have a dedicated staff who works ex-
tremely hard looking out for the best inter-
ests of the County. I need to especially thank
Judi, Mark, Shane and Jennifer, who spend
countless hours early in the morning and
late at night working on our behalf.
I use "we" because nothing happens in-
dividually on the Commission it takes con-
sensus and a majority and I am proud of the
efforts this Commission has made on behalf
of the Citizens of Hendry County.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention my
greatest fan; the Sunday Inquirer. It is my
hope that some day we learn about journal-
ism and that writing the news should always
be about the truth, the facts and should not
be about half truths, outright lies and insults
in order to sell a paper.
For at least the next two years until my
son graduates high school my nights and
weekends that are freed up will be spent
with my family. It is my utmost hope that we
continue working on making Hendry Coun-
ty the kind of place my kids can and want to
come back to, to work and live.
Thank you again for the privilege of rep-
resenting you on the Commission.

LaBelle High School 2010 Homecoming revisited


Homecoming Week 2010 at LaBelle High
School was one of the best in recent mem-
ory. This annual event took place from Nov.
1-6. There was a lot of school spirit evident,
students seemed to enjoy all of the activities
and excellent participation by a significantly
large number of students in all of the activi-
ties.
Each day of the week had a different
theme and students dressed up to fit that
theme. Monday was Pajama Day with Caleb
Rimes and Allie Loux voted best dressed.
Tuesday was History Day with the Mafia
Boys (Lucas Talada, Elias Carmona, Cole
Anderson, Thomas Cotrell and Daniel Her-
nandez) and the GoGo girls (Emily Leon,
Elizabeth Burns and Brittany Ballard) judged
best dressed. Kendall Wetherford and Teo
Verhoeven were best dressed on Wednes-
day, Sport's Day. Thursday was Mis-Matched
Day and best dressed were Sabrina Jones
and Kabrel Pino. Best dressed for Friday
were Ana Hernandez and Morgan Walker.
During each day of Homecoming Week,
there were trivia contests. "Who Let the
Dogs Out" featured pictures of dogs that
belonged to various staff members at LHS.


Students were challenged to match the dogs
with their owners. "Who's Watching Me"
showcased eyes of various staff members
with students guessing who was watching
them. There were also classroom trivia con-
tests each day.
Thursday evening featured the Boy's Vol-
leyball games with the Sophomores trounc-
ing the Freshman and the Seniors ousting the
Juniors. In playoff action, it was the Seniors
sneaking past the Sophomores to win the
2010 LHS Homecoming VolleyBall Cham-
pionship. This is the fourth year that Boy's
Volleyball has become part of the Home-
coming Week activities and it is becoming
more popular each year. However, the Girl's
PowderPuff football game has been a part
of Homecoming Week for a very long time
and is still the featured event of the night. In
PowderPuff action, the Sophomores pound-
ed the Freshman and the Juniors toppled the
Seniors. The weather cooperated for most
of the evening until the skies opened up in
the Championship game. In the Kansas tie-
breaker format, the Sophomores scored an
apparent touchdown, only to be called back
on a penalty. Taking over on downs the Ju-


niors went the wrong way due to a strong
Sophomore defense and the game ended in
a tie.
Friday's activities concluded the week
of theme days with the annual Spirit Day.
Lots of students showed their LaBelle High
School spirit by dressing up in red and white.
There were lots of cowboy hats and faces
painted in the school colors. Karaoke music
was featured during all lunches. The Home-
coming Dance DJ set up his sound system,
microphone and teleprompter, so students
could sing their favorite songs. Music and
singing filled the cafeteria for 1.5 hours, with
even a few LHS staff members joining in the
singing.
At 4 p.m. on Friday, the annual Home-
coming Parade was held. This great tra-
ditional parade travels down Main Street
from the U-Save parking lot to Barron Park.
Each of the four classes at LHS created their
own floats with the Sophomore Class being
judged the best and the Junior class entry
coming in second. When the points were
calculated for the coveted Spirit Trophy, it
was the Senior class once again showing the
most spirit during Homecoming Week.
On Saturday night the annual Homecom-
ing Dance was held and our theme this year
was "Under the Sea." Members of Student
Government and the Freshman class trans-
formed the cafeteria into a water wonder-
land. A great tunnel into the ocean greeted
the guests with lots of underwater creations
and even a cardboard ship. Dancers enjoyed


the music, food and soft drinks until mid-
night. Based upon the fact that most guests
stayed until midnight, the dance was a great
success.
The faculty, staff and students of LaBelle
High School want to thank all of the won-
derful people who helped make Homecom-
ing 2010 such a success. Special thanks go
to Mr. Pat Langford for his generous loan of
nine great Langford Ford vehicles driven in
the parade. Also we want to thank the U-
Save Corporation and Mr. David Childs for
their generous donation of 56 cases of wa-
ter to keep our dances hydrated during the
Homecoming Dance.

Cowboys end season L _


by Patty Brnat
Caloosa Belle
The Cowboys ended their season on a
sour note with a 31-11 loss on the football
field to Riverdale Nov. 12. Head Coach Hal
Bennett said his team actually played better
than the score indicates. He said the team
held their own early with a 10-3 score at half
time against a play off team.
"We played hard," he said, adding that
the offense did quite well, rushing for 291
yards as a team 266 of those yards came
from Chris Garcia. Chris also had an 85- yard
touchdown run. "He ran hard all night. It
was tough to stop him," coach said.
However, the defense could not stop Riv-
erdale.
Special teams was a bright spot, includ-
ing David Antunez' 35-yard field goal, good
kick offs and kick off returns for good field
position.
Offensive Player of the Week Chris
Garcia.
Defensive Players of the Week David
Antunez and Ellis Johnson. Both turned in
good open-field tackles, Coach Bennett said,
and ran guys down several times. "I was im-
pressed with their hussle," he added. David
had a fumble recovery and Ellis got an in-
terception.


Special Teams Player of the Week
Long snapper Ian Kelly struggled for the last
three weeks, coach said, but all his snaps
were good that night.
Practice Player of the Week senior of-
fensive lineman Josey Scannell has been suf-
fering with injuries all year, but never backed
down from practice. "He never missed a
beat," coach said.
"We're not happy with where we are,"
coach said recalling the season. "We should
have had at least four wins. Early injuries
killed us." Losing eight starters took a toll on
the kids they didn't come around after that,
he said. "But late in the season we started to
get after it, to do the right things. Since Gate-
way Charter our boys scratched and clawed,
battled some good teams. I feel we did some
things to Island Coast no other team could
do."
He added that the Cowboys have got to
get better and learn to overcome adversity.
They also need to reduce injuries.
"The last two years injuries have been
key in our lack of success," he pointed out.
He said the team needs to spend more time
in the weight room. Not only will it make
them stronger and bigger, but it also pro-
tect against injuries. "That's huge," he com-
mented, "If we can't be bigger and faster, we
can control being stronger."

boys. The Cowgirls will host Evangelical Chris-
tian School on Tuesday and will face Clewis-
ton High School on Wednesday.


Despite having a very young and small
team last year, the LaBelle High School girls
varsity basketball squad nearly finished with a
.500 record (9-10).
"We considered it a really successful sea-
son because we weren't very big and we had
a lot of young kids," said second-year coach
Kevin Lutkenhaus, who coached the LaBelle
High School varsity boys team from 1987 to
1995. "We lost three seniors, including Ada
Johnson and Kaylin Cash, but the other girls
are back for this season and it's a nice group
of kids. We have the potential to be pretty
solid."
Six players projected to see plenty of action
in 2010-11 are sophomore forward-center Car-
oline Cottrell, junior forward-center Markedra
Brown, senior forward-center Sabrina Jones,
sophomore guard-forward Andrea Lutken-
haus, sophomore guard-forward Mariah Mo-
lina and senior guard-forward Briana Ramos.
"We'll have a lot of motion in our offense
and we'll play a lot of man defense. Our depth
will help us because of all the running we're
going to do. It's going to show when we play


The LaBelle High School boys cross
country team is headed to the state finals in
Dade City on Nov. 20, thanks to a surprising
fifth-place finish Saturday in the Class 2A Re-
gional, The top six teams from each of the
four regions advance to state.
The Cowboys' performance marked the
first time in 12 years that the LaBelle boys
team has advanced to the state finals.
The Cowboys were led by an inspired
Caleb Baker, who was not picked to be in
the top 15 runners. He just edged out team-
mate Gabriel Baron at the finish line for sec-
ond place overall. Both runners recorded
times of 16:34, a personal best for Baker.
They were followed by Erick Medina (35th,
18:08), Carlos (Peg) Santillan (44th, 18:26)
and Carlos Suarez (47th, 18:31). David Miller
(52nd, 18:39) and Val Alsina (67th, 19:08)
helped eliminate other competition.
After finishing fourth at the district finals
the previous weekend, the Cowboys were
picked to finish no higher than eighth at the
regional level.
"We were not expected to do as well at
regionals because we placed fourth in our


district, and the Tampa District had just as
many strong teams coming down," said
LaBelle coach Jef Frost. "I really spent a lot
of time getting our guys mentally focused.
Physically, I knew they were ready and just
needed to be mentally prepared. This race
was not for the weak minded.
"I had three points of emphasis. One,
no one would be expecting us because we
were in the rear view mirror. Other teams
would be only focusing on the teams in front
of them. Two, at districts, I told the kids to go
out easy and not get caught up in running
too fast too early and get burned out before
the end of the race. I had inadvertently set
them up to run faster at regionals because
each one of them said they could run faster
after the race. There, we were going to try
and keep up with Immokalee and if we did,
they would help pull us through to the state
finals."
Estero finished first, followed by three
Tampa teams, then LaBelle and Immokalee.
Cypress Lake, the district runner-up from the
previous week, did not qualify as a team.

Children's book


promotes patriotism


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
American history is a connection each of
us has to every other American, regardless
of when they may have reached our shores.
That may be why teaching American
history to young children is so important
to Lindsay Wendt and her husband, Jeff.
Together they have published a book that
brings our collective family history to life for
the youngest Americans.
Brightly colored illustrations, done by
Lindsay, compliment the narrative her hus-
band penned.
The Wendts live in Pittsford, Michigan.
Lindsay's mother, Patti Nixon, and grand-
mother, Joann Woosley, are longtime resi-
dents of LaBelle.
At this time, George and Marty's Awe-
some Adventures is a three-part series of
books, beginning with America's Amazing
Birth. In this initial story, three children spend
the summer with Grandpa, who happens to
be a pilot. Unbeknownst to the children, his
plane turns out to be a time machine.
They travel through time and actually
witness the great events of the Revolution:
events leading up to the Declaration of In-
dependence, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Re-


vere's ride, the events of Concord and the
actual signing of the Declaration.
It's great fun and great learning for kids
ages 5-11.
Lindsay said they tried to make it amus-
ing and historically accurate. They hope to
increase children's excitement in their own
national history.
The second installment in the series is
The Constitution, followed by The Bill of
Rights.
The couple has no solid plans for later
books for the series, but they're seeking
ideas from readers.
She said they have sold quite a few copies
already and the book just came out in late
July. They hope their books will be learn-
ing tools for parents and homeschoolers,
sparking discussion about today's headlines
and reminding us all of what we should be
proud of.
Self published through Dog Ear, George
and Marty's Amazing Adventures can be
purchased at on line bookstores, You can
order by ISBN 978-160844-631-5. Visit their
Web site at libertysseedlings.com.
Ultimately, the Wendts hope their books
teach children about pride in their country,
self reliance and personal responsibility.

Decorate for Boat Parade
1. Make a decorating plan for your boat.
Decide if there is enough room for a Christ-
mas tree; make sure it doesn't block the cap-
tain'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.
Keep in mind that the decorations need to
be visible from the shore.
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.
4. Decorate with two or three color com-
binations only.

Caloosa Belle neighborhood park possible.
Located behind the Muse Fire Depart-

Colorful playground equipment, tables,
benches and pavilions invite residents to
take a little time to enjoy life.
Muse Community Association President
Jimmy Cianfrani and his wife Diane, Secre-
tary and Chairman of the Park and Build-
ing Committee, hosted the luncheon at the
Muse Community Center. Diane provided
the enticing luncheon of pasta, broccoli sal-
ad, chicken salad, fruit salad and sherbet.
Glades County donated 90 percent of the
land, according to President Cianfrani, as
well as playground equipment, dirt, fencing
and cement. Grant money helped the play-
ground equipment and garbage cans. The


play area is covered with mulch for safety.
Muse resident Harris Friedman donated
cash to make the park a reality and the MCA
has spearheaded the plans with the county.
Late last year dirt and playground equip-
ment first arrived, beginning the transforma-
tion of an open field into a haven for giggles
and philosophizing.
A volleyball court and fitness course for
adults have been added to the playground
equipment for toddlers and bigger kids.
With four pavilions and grills the park is a
welcoming place for families and friends.
There is also room to expand, possibly with
basketball and tennis courts.

efforts on behalf of their neighbors in making the Muse Community Park a real-

The Muse Community Park is a fun and healthy place for kids and adults to
enjoy with pavilions, grills and a fitness walk as well as this great playground
equipment. Little ones can expend lots of energy here!
