2011 has started on a very bad note in La-
Belle, with Hendry County investigating two
deaths.
Saturday evening, December 31, at ap-
proximately 7:31 p.m., Hendry County depu-
ties responded to the area of Orange Ave.
and Lillian Street attempting to locate a man
who had been reported shot. Deputies found
23-year-old Nathan Francis lying on the side
of the roadway. Minutes later EMS personnel


responded to the scene and, while transport-
ing the victim for medical treatment, he suc-
cumbed to his injuries.
The motive for the shooting is currently un-
der investigation, being conducted by Hendry
County Sheriff's Office.
Just a few days earlier, authorities were
called to investigate a woman's death.

Canoeist following dream


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Fifty-two year-old Jerry Bell, a former steel
fabricator, may be crazy. Or he may just be one
of the sanest people you might ever meet.
You see, Jerry left his job in Indiana to em-
bark on a momentous canoe trip that will take
him throughout the eastern part of the country.
In 2001 Jerry first headed out in a rubber


raft. He and his buddies acquired the raft by
collecting thousands of coupons from cigarette
packages.
He said his wife had left him and he was fed
up with the working grind. "So I decided it was
my time." He gave everything away so he could
do what he really wanted to do head off on a

Local veterans, and all who appreciate
their many sacrifices, can finally enjoy the
centerpiece of the new Veterans Park, a
massive monument depicting members of
each military branch. A POW/MIA insignia
is on the back of the monument. Located in
the heart of town, directly across from the
Courthouse, the park is a symbol of the debt
owed to all who have done their part to pro-
tect this country.
Saturday, Jan. 8, at 11 a.m. a ceremony
will mark the placement of this important
addition to LaBelle. Speakers will include
Joe Thomas, president of the LaBelle Heri-
tage Museum, as well as the commander of

Trip

canoe trip, all alone.
Jerry said his favorite part of his journey
was the slow, clean flow of the Ohio River
at its confluence with the Mississippi, sur-
rounded by the magnificent colors of fall.
There he said he "married" the river, throw-
ing his wedding ring into its depths saying,
"With this ring I thee wed..."
Along the Mississippi, a tree branch tore
a hole in the inflatable raft and he patched
it with duct tape till he made it to town. Un-
daunted, he ended up in Memphis where
he connected with two journalists who con-
vinced him to let them make a video docu-
mentary of his journey. The resulting video,
called "Nobody," has earned Best Docu-
mentary and the Kodak Tennessee Film-
makers Awards at the Indie Memphis Film
Festival and was selected for the prestigious
Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in
Durham, North Carolina. You can get a pre-
view of this amazing video at Nobodythet-
railer.com
Jerry also helped work on a video about
bole weevils and one on the music of Mem-
phis.
He ended up back home, leaving his
dream, but only for a while. The dream did
not leave him. He managed to buy a regular
canoe and continued on his relentless jour-
ney.
A trip like his takes a lot of characteris-
tics: gumption, persistence, a sense of ad-
venture, but perhaps most of all being okay
with yourself.
Jerry understood all that from the get-
go. But, he chucked a world that he felt had

passed him by to find his own type of peace.
He tried again August 7, 2009.
Friends were anxious to come along, but
none lasted more than a week or so. Fine
with him.
Along the way he's worked building
horse carriages, and learned to blacksmith,
inching his way along this country's me-
andering rivers through sunshine and rain,
wind and calm; pitching his tent by night or
just sleeping in his canoe.
Jerry's 14-foot canoe carries everything
he needs a tent, a few clothes, some cook-
ing gear, food and water. No watch, no ra-
dio, no computer, no TV no calendar. Just
Jerry and the natural world all around him.
He navigates only by the sun and stars,
These days it can be hard to find places
to pitch a tent for the night, especially in
Florida where most of the shoreline has
been developed, Jerry said.
He said he doesn't carry fishing gear -
he'd have to buy expensive out-of-state li-
censes in every state he comes to; and he
doesn't want any trouble with the law. So
he buys stores whenever he gets to town
and has been fortunate that local fishermen
and hunters have taken a liking to him and
provided him with fish and meat from time
to time.
Jerry spent several days over Christmas
in the LaBelle area, resting up for the next
phase of his trip and enjoying the little
town. A local couple even brought him a
nice Christmas dinner.
Like most of the places Jerry's visited,
"Everybody's been gold," he said. Except
for someone stealing his canoe in New Or-
leans, he's had no hassles.
Following the rivers has helped Jerry
heal his body as well as his soul. he said he
has regained his impaired senses of smell
and hearing, lost from years of noise and


poor air quality working in mills. He said
it only took a few weeks for his senses to
come back strong,
Jerry left LaBelle several days after
Christmas, heading to the Intracoastal, then
the Hudson River, Erie Canal, Lake Erie and
finally the Maumee River, which will take
him within a few miles of home.
After that, he said maybe he'll follow
Lewis and Clark's famous expedition's
route along the Missouri River.
Jerry said the best part of his journey
so far has been visiting historic old towns
along the country's rivers.
He's seen so many incredible sights, up
close you'd think it would be hard for him
to remember it all, but a conversation with
Jerry says otherwise. He immediately picks
out his meandering through the wetlands
along the Mississippi River, and outrunning
the fallout from the Horizon oil spill. He's
still awestruck, knowing he's probably the
last person to see the pristine area as it was
before the disaster.
After so long wandering alone, you'd
think he'd have his fill of it and would be
anxious to get back to the "real world." And
he does enjoy spending some time with lo-
cal people. But it's short lived. Before long
he's ready to restock his canoe, pick up his
paddle and head back out into his beloved
natural home. After a year and a half, he still
wants to see it all.
He's watched dolphins and pelicans rev-
el in their freedom, knowing he was doing
the very same thing. He's still anxious to see
what's around the bend.
The only time he was uneasy about be-
ing on the water alone was once when cau-
tion finally overcame the awe of watching a
shark circle under his canoe.
He's learned a lot from his travels. He
said he wouldn't recommend going by


canoe from Baton Rouge to the mouth of
the Mississippi. It's all industrialized and not
safe for small craft.
It's hard to find a place to make camp
along Florida's shores too "civilized." He
prefers areas where he can go three to five
days before seeing another town. He can
walk and explore those areas, and find the
healing nature he's always looking for.
Jerry said he can paddle about 2 m.p.h.
- up to 20 miles per day; but sometimes he
only manages a couple miles, depending
on the weather.
Jerry likes to keep a low profile, starting
out about an hour after sunrise as a rule,
although that varies according to weather
conditions. He said he's never been run off
the land where he's made camp and never
stays too long the river is calling.
To would-be adventurers, Jerry says, "Do
it. Don't think about it, just do it.
"People always think 'I can do that.' I did
it. I'm glad the world left me."

Numerous freezes hit vegetable farmers hard


by Patty Brant Caloosa Belle
and Jose Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Once again Mother Nature has not been
kind to area farmers. In December three
freezing nights have severely affected the
area, especially in Hendry County.
University of Florida Cooperative Exten-
sion Director and Regional Vegetable Agent
IV Gene McAvoy said farmers have lost 100
percent of their corn and bean crops and
about 70 percent of their tomatoes, eggplant
and peppers.
Preliminary figures for the Southwest
Florida area include only the period right af-
ter Dec. 14. Mr. McAvoy estimates the area
has lost about 25 percent of its annual out-
put. The area would normally have a $1.5
billion profit at that point. Of the $197 mil-
lion, $145 million was a direct loss to farm-
ers. Farmworkers lost some $30 million in
wages. The balance comes from support
industries such as trucking.
In addition, farmers sustained an addi-
tional $250-$300 million loss from the Janu-
ary and February 2010 freezes.
This is the third crop year Hendry farmers
have sustained significant loss due to freeze,
he added.
At least two local farmers went out of
business in 2010 due to last winter's freeze,
several others are at risk.
Even replanting is risky. If the weather co-
operates and another crop comes to fruition,
it will all come in at the same time resulting
in a glut in the market.
The overall economy compounds the
problem. It's tougher than ever to get a loan
from the banks and, with land values greatly
decreased, farmers cannot borrow as much
as they could in previous years. They're al-
ready at their limit.
Farmers may be discouraged, but Mr.
McAvoy said farmers are optimists by nature
- or they would be in this business.
Farmers need a couple good years of
good weather, coupled with problems in


competitors like Mexico, to pull out of this
hole.
Farmers have done as much as they can
in the face of this disastrous weather, Mr.
McAvoy said. They've covered and watered
all they can. Diversification, setting up farms
in several different locations like the larger
corporations have done, spreads out the
risk, but it's hard for small individual farmers
to do this.
Some 90 percent of Hendry County pro-
duce is sold in the northeast, from Chicago
to Georgia.
Citrus
He added that it's harder to get a handle
on citrus losses. Usually the cold doesn't kill
the tree and the fruit may be saved if it's pro-
cessed within a week. Waiting several weeks
causes the fruit to deteriorate. It will dry out,
sour and spoil. However, mills are only de-
signed to run from late October through
June, and have a limited capacity, so it's not
possible to process all the fruit, even if it's
harvested.
Sugar cane
"It's cumulative. We had a lot of damages
last week and had some more last night...
It is significant," said Mr. McAvoy.
The agent reported lows of around 26
degrees in the latest freeze, with the possi-
bility of colder pockets at individual groves
and farms. A total of nine hours of below-
freezing temperatures were recorded south
of Lake Okeechobee.
"If you look around, it's not green any-
more. The fields of green are now fields of
yellow," said Barbara Miedema, with the
Sugar Cane Growers Co-op in Belle Glade.
Ms. Miedema reported an energized shift
toward harvesting as much of the damaged
cane as possible, but noted that the refin-
ery's capacity to process the product limits
that directive.
"We're going out earlier in the morning,
and working later in the evening to grind a
little bit more cane," said Ms. Miedema.
Farmers are hoping that temperatures will


stay cooler, since a return to hot and humid
temperatures would devastate the product.
Cooler temperatures would "refrigerate" the
product long enough for companies to har-
vest the damaged plant. The window of time
is between 30 to 40 days to harvest damaged
sugarcane. At U.S. Sugar in Clewiston, man-
agers are still busy estimating what their
losses will be.
"We've now had three separate pro-
longed freeze events and so most of the cane
we have had widespread frost and frozen
stalk," reported Judy Sanchez, U.S. Sugar's
director of corporate communications.
"We have to harvest that sugarcane just
like we would if it was 100 percent healthy,"
she said, explaining that the company will

Investigators are waiting on an autopsy
and toxicology tests to determine how 44-
year-old Pearl Lee Smith died. Her body
was found in an abandoned house at 821
W Seminole Ave. on Dec. 26. Deputies re-
sponded at about 8 a.m. that day and EMS
attempted to revive the victim without suc-
cess. Ms. Smith was pronounced deceased.
Anyone with any information regarding
either of these cases is encouraged to con-

"produce less sugar this year than we had
estimated."
The very nature of the event -as well as
weather impacts around the world will en-
sure that sugar prices will go up, tempering
the losses for the companies.
One other looming question affecting the
sugarcane operations is whether the seed
stock is sufficient to carry over into next
year's crop.

Port LaBelle CDD, BWCD clarification, Part II


The following is the second part of a response of
Mr. Han Mouthaan to two editorials that ran in
the Hendry-Glades Sunday News. He is attempt-
ing to clarify issues dealing with the Port LaBelle
Community Development District and Barron
Water District.
The BWCD is a Chapter 298 of the Florida
Statutes, independent, multi county taxing
Special District. It was created by the "Or-
der Granting Petition for the formation of a
Water Management District" on May 8, 1975,
etc. etc.
The charter ends at midnight on Septem-
ber 30, 2020 unless its existence is extended
by the State Legislation. It operates under
the "Plan of Water Management".
It consists of 32,000 acres of land, ap-
proximately 50 square miles. Urban land is
mowed 7 times per year, irrigation land 4
times per year and drainage land 2 times per
year, 3 times if needed.
Its charter and the legal description of its
boundaries and the Plan of Water Manage-
ment can be viewed by the public at the
BWCD office during regular business hours.
The BWCD is governed by a 3-person board,
it:
Maintains 3 drainage canals and numer-
ous swales (ditches) in the District to man-
age the flow of surface water.
Widens and/or dredges canals when and
where needed.
Controls vegetation in canals, on canal
banks and in and along all swales.
Mows all canal banks, swales and access
ways to said canals.
Maintains required water levels in canals

with needed water for their operations.
Installed, operates and maintains 11
pumping stations, 5 weirs and several cul-

The operation of pumping stations and
weirs is a day and night activity which be-
comes very critical during severe weather
conditions.
Purchases/leases and maintains all equip-
ment necessary to perform all of the above
functions and services.
Purchases and (legally and safely) stores
all of the necessary chemicals and fluids to
perform all of said functions and services in
conjunction with the PLCDD.
Contracts service providers for services
that cannot be performed in house.
The above functions and services would
not be performed if the BWCD were to be
phased out.
The 2 counties it operates in would have
to be willing to assume the responsibility of
managing surface water levels acceptable to
the residents and large land owners in the
District who are dependent on controlled
water levels.
The large land owners (ranchers and
grove owners) have a monetary investment
in pumping stations and other surface wa-
ter level controlling equipment currently in-
stalled.
It is not very likely that Glades and Hen-
dry Counties would be willing to assume the
responsibility of the required surface water
control.

The current board of the BWCD is com-
prised of Mark Colbert (Chair Person), Danny
Sutton (Vice Chair Person) and Ricke Kress
(Treasurer).
Board Members are elected by the prop-
erty owners in the District. Candidates are
nominated by representatives of the land
owners and are installed for a 3-year term at
the Annual Landowners Meeting in January
of each year.
They receive no monetary compensation
for their services. Every year 1 of the board
positions is up for election. After the Janu-
ary meeting the Board meets as needed at
the district office. All meetings are advertised


in the local newspapers and are open to the
public.
The Board appoints a General Manager,
an attorney, an engineer and an auditor.
The services of an Administrative Assis-
tant are contracted with the PLCDD through
an annually renewable inter-local agree-
ment.
The office staff divides its time, as needed,
between PLCDD and BWCD related work
activities so as to avoid maintaining a sepa-
rate, full office staff for each District. The two
Districts, as explained above, are bound by
an inter-local agreement.
Both Districts are managed and operated
with high efficiency and are responsive to
citizen concerns.
The Districts' property, canals, swales
and right-of-ways are carefully groomed and
maintained in an excellent manner.


Goals, Not Resolutions


By Pat Dobbins
Are you one of those people who always
make a New Year's resolution? Many people
make a New Year's reso-
lution to lose weight or to
quit smoking. This year, try
something new...call the
changes that you want to
make in your life, "goals"
not "resolutions." Believe
in yourself and believe you
can achieve your health
and fitness goals in 2011! Patricia
By setting goals, you im- Dobbins
mediately get your creative
juices flowing which can make you excited
about achieving your goals. If you want to
see immediate results, start by setting small

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.


articles per month.
Add fruits and vegetables to each din-
ner/meal plan.
Set your weight loss goals in 10 pound
increments.
Get involved in your community...try
volunteering.
Once you figure out what your health
and fitness goals are, write them down and
review them often.
Keep in mind that you will probably get
off track at least once. You may start off with
a "bang" and get into a routine and then all
of a sudden something happens that knocks
you off your track.
You might get sick, have to travel unex-
pectedly or you might even get a little lazy (it
happens to the best of us).
Don't give up! Lots of things in life can
slow down your progress, but the key is to
prepare yourself in advance for times when
you get sidetracked. Just keep telling your-
self, that it's okay to get off track, and then
get back up, brush yourself off, and move
forward toward your goals.


We Pledge...
* To operate this newspaper as a public trust
* To help our community become a better place to
live and work, through our dedication to consci-
entious journalism.
* To provide the information citizens need to make
their own intelligent decisions about public
issues.
* To report the news with honesty, accuracy, pur-
poseful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearless-
ness and compassion.
* To use our opinion pages to facilitate community
debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions.
* To disclose our own conflicts of interest or poten-
tial conflicts to our readers.
* To correct our errors and to give each correction
the prominence it deserves.
* To provide a right to reply to those we write
about.
* To treat people with courtesy, respect and
compassion.

Lost animals remembered at

rainbow bridge memorial Pet Fest


The Rainbow Bridge is a mythical place
where our loving pets go after their death
to wait to be reunited with their owners.
For the last three years, the LaBelle
Woman's Club has had a rainbow bridge
memorial at the annual Pet Fest, where the
public can put the names of their pets that
have gone there to wait for them. There is
a donation requested. As is with all profit
made from the event, these donations are
used to help our many rescue groups.
This year organizers have had a beauti-


ful, matted and framed print of the rainbow
bridge that has been illustrated by Terry
Flannery, donated for a raffle basket.
This is always held at the end of the
day's events. The date this year is Janu-
ary 22 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Woman's Club
members are looking forward to seeing
you there. Vendors still have time to secure
a spot.
For more information call Sharyn at
675-6081.

Harrison was trying to put some basic infra-
structure into place to make Hendry County
more business friendly. Hendry County EDC
applied for a USDA grant to set up small
business incubators in LaBelle and Clewis-
ton, called "Enterprise Hendry."

July 15
Living to be 100 years of age is surely a
rarity, but having two centenarians residing
at the same facility has got to be something
special. Two residents of Oakbrook of La-
Belle turned 100 this past week, within just a
day of each other.
Faye Warren was born July 10, 1910, and
Sybil Bennett is one day her junior.

July 22
Olde Cypress Bank was taken over by
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's
Office of Thrift Supervision, and was trans-


ferred over to CenterState. It was the second
bank to fail in Hendry County in 2010.
LaBelle residents were struggling with
the problems caused by the closing of the
LaBelle Bridge for repairs. The bridge shut
down July 5 and would be closed until Au-
gust 8.

July 29
Each of the three HCSO K-9s received
a bullet proof vest to help protect them in
dangerous situations. The HCSO K-9s are
the sixth, seventh and eighth dogs receiving
vests through the group. The 110-member
organization covers the entire 20th Circuit.

August 3
The saga of the Sheriff's Clewiston Sub-
office continued. At their July 27 meeting,
county commissioners accepted the low
bid of $10,000 to demolish the old building.
Damaged by Hurricane Wilma in 2005, the
building had been vacant ever since.

August 12
On August 6 funding for a new 1.5 million
gallons per day (gpd) plant were officially
secured from USDA Rural Development,
sealed with the presentation of a ceremonial
check for $15,310,430.

August 19
The board was trying to minimize the
sticker shock to customers by spreading an
increase in water rates over several years.
The plan was to begin with a 15 percent in-
crease in October and continue to phase in
the increases over the following years.


There would be one more public hearing
on the rate increase at the next regular com-
mission meeting,

August 26
International Christian Academy "ICA",
a new Christian private-school, K-12th, re-
ceived its business license on August 20. It
was to open after Labor Day, on Sept. 7.

September 2
Congressman Tom Rooney, District 16,
stopped in LaBelle and Clewiston as he
was making his way to the annual citrus
banquet in Fort Myers. He met with mayors
Mali Gardner and Paul Puletti in Clewiston
first, and then with Economic Development
Director Roger Harrison and county officials
in LaBelle.
The Congressman and Mr. Harrison con-
versed over highly confidential plans for
Airglades Airport and discussed Southeast
Renewables, a renewable fuel plant cur-
rently being permitted for the area south of
Clewiston on Evercane Road.
Hendry County commissioners approved
an amendment to the One-Cent Small Coun-
ty Surtax ordinance, which had been ear-
marked for local government infrastructure
including roads, bridges, government build-
ings, etc. As per discussions during bud-
get workshops, Commissioners approved
changing the ordinance to allow use of these
funds for operating expenses as well.

September 9
A group of local residents have come up
with the idea of a Good Neighbor Award.
With a mixture of faiths and backgrounds,
these folks just decided that they could reach
out to one local resident once a month and
provide them with a helping hand. The
group is adamant that all members remain
anonymous if anyone knows who they
are, they would not be able to carry on this
unique community outreach.

September 16
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.

September 23
Jobs and the environment were on Flor-
ida Chief Financial Officer and Democratic
gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink's mind as
she made a quick stop in Hendry-Glades last
Saturday.
The Democratic candidate for Governor


stopped at the Port LaBelle Inn.

September 30
Circuit Judge Christine Grieder made it
very clear that, if former Hendry County Jail
administrator Susan English was convicted
of grand theft and official misconduct, she
should face a minimum of 48 months in the
Department of Corrections. The judge rea-
soned that a jail administrator is in a position
of trust over funds to be used for the benefit
of inmates in the Hendry County Jail, which
would call for a stiffer sentence than the
defense and prosecution had earlier agreed
on.

October 7
The county's 2010-11 millage rate would
remain at 6.5 mills, which included a 14 per-
cent decrease in total taxes and represents a
$1,962,955 loss in ad valorem taxes.
The funding was made up using part of
the one cent sales tax revenue, $337,716
from the disaster relief fund and a reduction
in the base health insurance plan. Commis-
sioners said money borrowed from the di-
saster relief fund previously has been paid
back.
The county's total budget stood at
$11,699,674.

October 14
Hendry-Glades was looking at the pro-
duction of biofuels, which held the prom-
ise of good jobs and a better economy. The
concept had been studied by local experts
for quite some time and plans were taking
shape.
University of Florida Professor, Soil and
Water Science of the IFAS Center Edward
Hanlon, and John Capece, PhD and Con-
sulting Engineer Southern Datastream, were
collaborating on the Hendry-Glades biofuel
project. Structured around education, this
project was intended to put Hendry-Glades
"in the game,"

October 21
The son of LaBelle pioneers, the late Rob-
ert Everette Burchard Sr., and Flora Margaret
(Forrey) Burchard, Ernest Easton Burchard
was being mourned after a lifetime of com-
munity service. Throughout his life, Easton
had continued the legacy of service his fam-
ily began.

October 28
The LaBelle Relay for Life event was offi-
cially rolling, after the kick off Saturday, Oct.
23, at the LaBelle Sports Park.
Committees were meeting, teams were
being formed and folks all around LaBelle
were getting excited about this annual rally
against cancer.

Friends of the Library kick off


Barron Library is currently looking for in-
dividuals who are interested in participating
in the new Friends of the Library group. In
these tough economic times, which have af-
fected library funding, it is becoming neces-
sary for volunteers to help in various aspects
of the operation of the library. If you don't
know what a 'friends group' does, maybe
these ideas will help.
Fund Raising -organize, promote and
implement fund raisers to help replace funds
no longer available.
Housekeeping and Maintenance -clean-
ing and general upkeep.
Phone Calls -keeping up with the collec-
tion of overdue materials.
Reading Shelves -making sure each


book is in its proper place on the shelf.
Computer Experts -many government
forms/applications are required to be filled
out on-line, by individuals who know noth-
ing about using a computer.
Guest Services -locating materials and/
or checking out materials for patrons.
Book Processing -each book goes
through a processing procedure before it
can be entered into library circulation.
There will be a kick-off luncheon, Janu-
ary 18 at noon for the new Friends of the
Library. For complete luncheon details, or
if you have further questions, contact Karen
Hildebrand, Library Director, at 863-675-
0833.

Historic lunar eclipse over LaBelle
Local photographer Anthony Narehood captured this photo of the first total
lunar eclipse during the winter solstice in 372 years. The red glow is due to
sunlight refracting through the Earth's atmosphere onto the Moon creating a
sunset all around the Earth from the Moon's perspective.
