Caos el eray2,21


One hundred years old; one


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle resident Vera Durrand is about to
join a very unique club. Not many people
have witnessed 100 years of life, but Vera is
about to become a card carrying member.
On Feb. 28, 1911, Vera was born in Wis-
consin and grew up on a dairy farm. Vera
always knew she wanted to be a teacher.
When her two brothers and two sisters
wanted to play school she was happy to play
along as long as she could be the teacher.
She and her mother had to milk the cows
when the men were in the fields.
At the tender age of four her aunt decided
to take Vera to school with her and the little
girl was thrilled. They had to walk about a
mile to get there, but little Vera recalls she
was just "glad to be so important."
Because she started school so young,
she graduated from High school at age 15,
attended teacher college in Eau Claire and
then Superior, becoming a teacher she was
just 17.
She still smiles that she paid her brother
back for loaning her college money with her
second pay check. She started her career
teaching in a one room school house called
Moose Ear School in Chetek, Wisc.
Her childhood dream was all she hoped
it would be. She always loved teaching she
knew it was important. The only part of the
job she didn't like was doling out discipline
- which always seemed to be directed at the
boys in her class.
"I still had to sit them in the corner," she


recalls.
She recently received cards from former
students after a newspaper article about her
ran in her hometown newspaper. She re-
tired from teaching after 35 years.
Vera first met Ray Durrand the man who
was to become her husband at a commu-
nity dance, visiting from Minnesota. His sis-
ter lived in Wisconsin and friend of Vera's. "I
knew he was coming and I wanted to meet
him!" she recalls. They courted and she
made every effort to win her beau's heart.
An avid baseball player, Vera went to all his
games and let him think she enjoyed it.
Eventually, the two married.
Ray was manger of the Ford dealership
Stone Lake Motor Co. When he retired they
moved to Arizona for a while, then moved
to Fort Lauderdale where he parents had a
winter home.
Their son worked in Fort Myers and now
lives in Jacksonville. Their daughter Berdella,
also a teacher, lives in Estero.
Vera and Ray eventually moved to Alva,
then to LaBelle where they were members
of the Community Harvest Worship Center.
A spry, petite woman, Vera did not slow
down. After retiring she took up oil painting.
The walls of her home and her daughter's
are lined with landscapes and still lifes.
Old habits die hard teaching was in
her blood and Vera taught art in Arizona
for a time. She'd still be painting, but for the
macular degeneration that has dimmed her
sight.
Smiling brightly, Vera said she hasn't


terrific lady
missed anything in her life, but does wish
she was able to see better. She said she
doesn't yearn for Wisconsin but misses the
seasons. especially the incredible fall colors.
Vera said she just look life as it came
and would advise youngsters to get all the
schooling they can because it's very impor-
tant these days.
For the past four years Donna Griffis has
been Vera's companion. They spend their
days in Bible study, talking and laughing.
Vera -is enjoying several parties in her
honor this month. How did she manage to
stay in the world this long?
"Stay away from doctors," she says with
a smile, "and laugh!"


At 100, Verna Durrand still stops to
smell the roses.

Grand Marshal Charles Humphries stands for community


Courtesy, Service, Protection. This is the
motto of the Florida Highway Patrol, an
organization that Charles Humphries, this
year's Swamp Cabbage Parade Grand Mar-
shal, served faithfully for 30 years.
"I have enjoyed living and working with
the homespun, cracker-type people who
live in LaBelle. I always found that anytime
anyone needed something, we all pulled to-
gether to help. This is a quaint little town,"
Charles said.
Mr. Humphries' dedication to LaBelle
began on Oct. 1, 1953, with his assignment
here one day after he graduated from the
Patrol Academy, but his life story started on
Aug. 31, 1930, with his birth in Broussard,
LA, the son of Willie and Carrie Humphries.
From there, the young family moved to
Blackman, FL, before settling in Pahokee.
His father became the assistant chief of the
Pahokee Police Department.
Charles is a 1948 graduate of Pahokee
High School. After graduation, he worked
for the family-owned Mackey Produce Com-
pany before being drafted in 1951 to serve in
the Korean War. He was injured in combat,
and received the Purple Heart, the Combat
Infantry Badge, and the United Nations' cita-
tion with a Bronze Star.
After his discharge, he returned to Paho-
kee where he worked at the police depart-
ment until his acceptance in the Patrol Acad-
emy in August 1953. Charles was assigned to
LaBelle on Oct. 1 of that same year, and he
has been a part of our history since then.
In 1956, he married LaBelle native Martha


Raye Humphries. They have two children,
Cindy Crittenden and Heidi Lederer. Charles
left LaBelle in 1962 when he was transferred
to Stuart. Martha Raye stayed in LaBelle to
work in the family's cattle business and kept
the two children here, but they all moved to
Lake Placid in 1963.
The Humphries family returned to La-
Belle in September 1970, when Charles
transferred to Fort Myers to become supervi-
sor of Motor Vehicle Inspection Stations in
nine counties. His responsibilities included
supervision of six troopers. His career with
the patrol ended with his retirement on Sept.
30, 1983. His final FHP assignment was the
supervision of nine troopers in five coun-
ties.
Charles worked for years after his retire-
ment, and those other jobs included head
of agriculture safety and security for Alico,
holding a similar position with Nobles Farms
in Immokalee, and head of security at Hen-
dry County Bank.
For Charles, service to the community
means more than pursuing a career. Mr.
Humphries has long been a volunteer in the
LaBelle school system volunteering after
his own children graduated.
Charles often drove the bus for the high
school band, and'if he wasn't driving the bus
he accompanied the band in his patrol car.
Along with the late Alton Ireland, he spent
many years cooking for the LHS band's
Swamp Cabbage Festival fundraiser that
was traditionally held on Swamp Cabbage
Sunday. Even now, Charles can be found


working at various LaBelle High School ath-
letic and other events whether cooking on
the grill or collecting tickets.
Charles has been involved in the Swamp
Cabbage Festival since its inception. He
has cooked, provided security, helped set-
up booths, run errands, and contributed
his time and talents wherever they may be
needed.
Charles is responsible
for getting his old Pahokee
friend, Mel Tillis, to perform
at the festival several times in
the late '60s and early '70s.
Those still rate as the top
money-making entertain-
ment events ever sponsored
by the Swamp Cabbage Fes-
tival Committee.
More so than anything
else is his devotion to and
practice of his faith.
Charles is a devout mem-
ber of the First Baptist Church
of LaBelle, where he has
served numerous times as
a deacon. His service to the
church also includes serving
on many finance, building,
and search committees.
Family life and maintain-
ing close family ties is also
important to this year's
Grand Marshal. He is the 2011 SCF Gr
proud grandfather (affec- a visit with hi
tionately called Dadaw by from Pahokee


his grandchildren) of Nathan Kyle Willis and
Chloe Patrice Lederer.
Courtesy, Service, Protection. That is the
Florida Highway Patrol motto. Add to that
the words Selfless, Caring, Dedicated, and
Faithful. Then, you start understanding why
Charles Humphries is this year's Swamp
Cabbage Festival Parade Grand Marshal.

DOT relents



on turn lane
Good news from DOT
The following letter is a response from
Department of Transportation District 1 Sec-
retary Stan Cann, acquiescing to a request
to replace the turning lane at SR 80 and Col-
lingswood that was removed in the current
construction project.

Dear Mr. Zimmerly:
I am writing in response to your email
requesting the department to replace the
eastbound right turn lane at the intersec-
tion of SR 80 and Collingswood Blvd. You,
were concerned about safety at the in-
tersection because of the absence of the
right turn lane. Be assured safety along
the state highway system is the top prior-
ity of the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation (FDOT).
The current design for the widening of
SR 80 from a two lane undivided to four
lane divided roadway did not include the
right turn lane. The review performed
during the design process considered
the number of turning vehicles currently
making a right turn at the intersection did
not meet the threshold for installation of
a right turn lane.
I asked my staff to review the location
again and determine if we can accom-
modate your request. Our review found
that there is potential for traffic growth at
the intersection and the location will ben-
efit from an exclusive right turn lane. As
such, we will install the eastbound right
turn lane at the intersection. I have asked
my staff to start the design process to add
the right turn lane.
The current widening project is sched-
uled to be complete in the next two
weeks. As such, we will have to issue
a new contract to install the turn lane. I
anticipate the design to be completed in
the next four weeks and a contractor to
be working at the location in three to four
months. If you have any questions, please
do not hesitate to contact me or Mr. Ed-
ward J. Gonzalez, P.E., Director of Trans-
portation Operations at (863) 519-2202.
Sincerely,
Stanley M. Cann, PE.

Transportation


If the Devil were to write his "Beatitudes"...


by Les Morgan
If the devil were to write his "beatitudes"
perhaps they would read something like
this....
Blessed are those who
are too tired, too busy, too
distracted to spend an hour -. .-'
once a week with their fel-
low Christians in church. .. '
They are my best workers .
Blessed are those Chris-
tians who wait to be asked
and expect to be thanked. I
sure can use them... more
than they will ever know! Dr. Les
Blessed are the "touchy." Morgan


With a little bit of luck, they may even stop
going to church. They are my missionaries.
Blessed are those who are very religious,
but, man do they ever get on everyone's
nerves. Those people... well, they are mine
forever! (HA!)
Blessed are the troublemakers. That is
the reason I refer to them as "My Sweet Chil-
dren." And, do I ever support them.
Blessed are those who have no time to
pray. Pardon the play on words, but, hon-
estly... they are prey to me.
Blessed are the gossips. I always can
use some extra secret agents, and they are
beyond being well-qualified for that driving
force.


Blessed are those who are critical of
church leadership. They shall inherit a very
special place with me in my final fate.
Blessed are the complainers. I gladly feed
them all of the "ammo" they need. And, just
for the record, I'm all ears for them.
Finally, friends, blessed are you when you
read this. And,'instead of making an appro-
priate response, and coming clean before
God, you think it is all about other people
and not about you. Let's see, now... how do
they say? Oh yeah Gotcha!
*Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa
Baptist Church in LaBelle, located 200 yards
behind Flora & Ella's on Highway 80.


February is American Heart Month


by Pat Dobbins
According to the Centers for Disease
Control & Prevention (CDC), heart disease
is the leading cause of
death in the United States. J
About every 25 seconds, an
American will have a coro-
nary event and about one
every minute will die from
one.
Heart disease is the # 1I
cause of death in Hendry
County and the #2 cause
of death for Glades County. Patricia
Here are a few tips to Dobbins
help you to become "heart healthy"
Eat a healthy diet. Choosing healthier
meal and snack options can help you avoid
heart disease and its complications. Be sure
to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Eating foods low in saturated fat and cho-
lesterol and high in fiber can help prevent
high blood cholesterol. Limiting salt or so-
dium in your diet can also lower your blood
pressure.
-Maintain a healthy weight. Being over-
weight or obese can increase your risk for
heart disease. To determine whether your
weight is in a healthy range, healthcare pro-
viders often calculate a number called the
body mass index (BMI). Sometimes your
waist and hip measurements are used to
measure your excess body fat.
Exercise regularly. Physical activity can


help you maintain a healthy weight and
lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.
It is suggested that adults should engage in
moderate-intensity exercise for at least 30
minutes each day.
Don't smoke. Cigarette smoking greatly
increases your risk for heart disease. So,
if you don't smoke, don't start. If you do
smoke, quitting will lower your risk for heart
disease. Talk to your healthcare provider
about ways you can quit smoking.
Limit alcohol use. Avoid drinking too
much alcohol, which can cause high blood
pressure.
Prevent or Treat Your Medical Conditions:
If you have high cholesterol, high blood pres-
sure, or diabetes, there are steps you can
take to lower your risk for heart disease.
Have your cholesterol checked. Your
health care provider should test your cho-
lesterol levels at least once every five years.
Talk with your healthcare provider about
this simple blood test.
Monitor your blood pressure. High
blood pressure has no symptoms, so be sure
to have it checked on a regular basis.
Manage your diabetes. If you have
diabetes, closely monitor your blood sugar
levels. Talk with your health care provider
about treatment options.
Take your medicine. If you're taking
medication to treat high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, or diabetes, follow your
healthcare provider's instructions carefully.


Always ask questions if you don't under-
stand something.
Talk with your health care provider. You
and your healthcare provider can work to-
gether to prevent or treat the medical condi-
tions that lead to heart disease. Discuss your
treatment plan regularly and bring a list of
questions to your appointments.
Know your signs and symptoms. Some
heart attacks are sudden and intense, how-
ever, most heart attacks start slowly and you
may only feel mild pain or discomfort. Many
people aren't sure what's wrong and wait
too long before getting help. Here are signs
that can mean a heart attack is happening:
Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks
involve discomfort in the center of the chest
that lasts more than a few minutes, or that
goes away and comes back. It can feel like
uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, full-
ness, or pain.
Discomfort in other areas of the upper
body. Symptoms can include pain or dis-
comfort in one or both arms, the back, neck,
jaw, or stomach.
Shortness of breath. May occur with or
without chest discomfort.
Other signs. These may include break-
ing out in a cold sweat, nausea, or lighthead-
edness.
A healthy diet and lifestyle are the best
weapons you have to fight heart disease.

SWAMP CABBAGE is an old-time Florida
cracker favorite vegetable obtained from the
heart of the cabbage palm (S. palmetto), which
is the official state tree of Florida. The plant is
known by such other names as palmetto palm,
sabal palm, and swamp cabbage tree.
The cabbage palm grows wild all over the
state in such abundance that it is not cultivat-
ed for harvest as a vegetable. Cabbage palms
grow as individual plants scattered across the
horizon, or thickly clustered together in ham-
mocks.
Although the swamp cabbage tree grows
wild, it is protected from indiscriminate cut-
ting by its designation as Florida's state tree.

Attempted theft goes wrong


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
A LaBelle man was arrested and charged
after an apparent attempt to siphon gas from
a couple's vehicle on Apache Ave. failed. Ac-
cording to sheriff's reports, Derek Ely Ven-
able, 28, was charged with first degree arson
dwelling people present, burglary unoccu-
pied conveyance unarmed and petit theft
second degree first offense.
Deputies and fire personnel were called
to 1160 Apache Ave. about 12:45 a.m. Feb.
21 and found a 2010 GMC Sport Utility ve-
hicle on fire under the residents' carport.
Reports indicate that Deputy David White
initially tried to contain the fire, which was
also damaging the side of the home, with a
garden hose found at the scene. He turned
firefighting duties over to LaBelle firefighters
at their arrival.
A second vehicle, a 1990 Dodge truck
was also at the scene, undamaged, but had
been ransacked. Deputies also found a gas
cap, gas can, yellow ice scraper, piece of a
garden hose and a set of Chevrolet car keys.


A burnt pair of white tennis shoes were un-
der the carport.
Sgt. Kirk found a 2007 Chevy sedan at
1250 Shawnee Ave. that matched the keys
found at the scene. At that residence, depu-
ties were told that Venable had been there
asking for gas money but been turned away.
Venable reportedly left and when he re-
turned had burns on his face and arms. He
was picked up by an unknown person and
left. At Venable's residence, deputies found
him in the shower. He told officers he had
burned himself earlier at a barn fire on his
property. At the sheriff's annex, Venables
was evaluated by EMS personnel and treated
for his burns.
During an interview, Venable said his
brother was trying to syphon the gas and
that he was five-seven feet away. He said
when his brother was screwing the gas cap
on he lit a lighter to see what was going on
and the fumes caught fire. He also told of-
ficers his brother had fled to an unknown
address in Immokalee.

Firefighters work to put out a car fire authorities believe erupted as someone
tried to siphon gas out of this GMC Sport Utility'vehicle. They also worked to
minimize the damage, to the victims' home. Deputies made one arrest in the
incident.

Mission trip fund raiser
This summer the Youth and Adults of
First Baptist Church of LaBelle will be go-
ing to Managua, Nicaragua, where there are
approximately 15,000 children between the
ages of 7 and 14 living on the streets who
have been forced to forego their childhood
and prematurely enter the adult reality of
hardship and suffering.
Many of these children live in and around
Managua's sprawling public markets, where
it is easy to scavenge food.
A few work shining shoes, cleaning
windshields or selling anything from candy
to their bodies, but most beg or steal to
survive. We need you to join us in bringing
hope to these Nicaraguan children.
On Saturday, and Sunday, Feb. 26 and
27, we will have swamp cabbage parking
on our church ball field and we are asking
for a $5 donation.

this mission project. If you would like to

The Eugene Rennolds Family set deep roots in LaBelle


Since the Rennolds family came to this
country in the early 1700s, it has established
a long history in the ministry, farming and
business among other pursuits.
Edwin Hansford Rennolds and Margaret
Cox Rennolds were the parents of Eugene
Rennolds, the patriarch-of the 2011 SCF Pio-
neer Family, who pioneered in Florida.
His father, Edwin, was a Baptist preacher
whose ancestors had been immigrants-from
England who came to this land, settling near


Tappanhannock, Virginia. Edwin was born
in Locust Grove, Virginia, in 1839, the son of
Robert and Jane Hansford Rennolds.
Edwin taught school from 1859 to 1861
at which time he took over his father's farm.
Tennessee was the last southern state to
secede from the Union and join the newly
formed Confederate States of America in
June 1861; at this time, Edwin joined the
Confederate Army and was assigned to 5th
Tennessee Infantry. After the Civil War, he re-
turned to his father's farm and married Mar-
garet C. Cox on January 11, 1866. They had
seven children. Rennolds received a Baptist
preacher's license in 1869 and continued
to preach throughout his life. The family
moved to Florida in 1882 and moved several
more times within Florida. Edwin Hansford
Rennolds died in Jacksonville on November
17, 1912.
Eugene was the oldest of seven children.
When he was 16 he moved with his parents
and siblings to Wildwood, Florida. His father
later served as chaplain for the Florida State
Senate for several terms at the turn of the
century.
Eugene Meshach Rennolds was born
April 2, 1867, in the community of Puryear
near Paris, Tennessee. His parents were
Eugene was usually called Gene by friends
and family. Formally, he was known as E.
M. Rennolds.
Typical of many Florida pioneers Eugene
had a number of vocations. He was at vari-
ous times a carpenter, citrus grower, sawyer,
surveyor, blacksmith, postmaster and boat
operator.
As a young man Eugene worked around
Lake Istapoga. Later he owned an orange
grove at Gulf Hammock, Florida. In the win-
ter of 1894/95 he lost the grove to a severe


freeze; After the freeze Eugene moved fur-
ther south to Tampa where he worked as
a carpenter. Later he moved to Fort Myers
were he continued in carpentry.
In 1897 Eugene married Ellen Cook. Their
only child, Wiley Worth Rennolds, was born
in July of 1899.
Eugene purchased a 160-acre homestead
across the river from the Hands and opened
a sawmill business. Later he purchased sev-
eral adjoining pieces of land. This increased
the size of his holdings considerably. The
area became known as Hansford, after his
father's middle and grandmother's maiden
names. Hansford was located where River-
side Retreat on State Road 78 (formerly the
Methodist Youth Camp) is now. Eugene also
grew citrus and kept bees in Hansford. At
one time he had over a hundred hives.
Ellen died while returning from a trip to
Sanibel to visit her sister. She was sitting
on the upper deck of a riverboat holding
her baby when a hunter boarded the boat.
The hunter accidently fired his gun while
unloading it on the lower deck. The bullet
went through the upper deck striking Ellen
in the hip. Within an hour she had died of
blood loss.
Wiley Worth Rennolds, Eugene's oldest
son, died when he was about twelve years
old. He drowned in the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er behind their home in Hansford.
On April 11, 1904, Eugene married Eliza
Catherine Hand. Better known as "Dolly,"-
she was born May 27, 1888 in Frink, Florida.
Her parents were Zachery Taylor Hand and
Ann Eliza Livingston Hand. The Hands lived
in Fort Denaud on the south side of the Ca-
loosahatchee River. Together Eugene and
Eliza started raising a new family that even-
tually numbered: Edwin Taylor, 1905; Berah,
1907; Earl Eugene, 1910; Cora Catherine,
1912; Paul Meschach, 1914; Leon Oscar,
1916; and Woodrow Wilson, 1918. It is in-
teresting to note that all seven Rennolds chil-
dren were named after their father's broth-
ers and sisters.
Eugene Meschach Rennolds served as a
county commissioner for the eastern part of
Lee County before it became Hendry County
in 1923. He died on a trip to Gulf Hammock,
Florida in 1932 with his widow surviving
him until 1988 when she died at the age of
100 years.
Eugene often moved his sawmill to where
there was available timber. Sometimes the
family also moved to these temporary loca-
tions. However, he and Eliza always consid-
ered Hansford to be their home during their
children's youth.
Eugene was a trustee of a one-room
school at Hansford that he was instrumental
in building. The school operated from 1914
until 1921. Eugene was always concerned
about educating children. He also served as
Hansford's postmaster from 1915 until 1919
when the post office was closed. In 1919 Eu-
gene was elected as a county commissioner
for Lee County. Hansford, Fort Denaud and
LaBelle were part of Lee County until Hen-
dry County was created in 1923.
Eugene "Gene" Rennolds died on Octo-
ber 2, 1932, while on a business trip to Cedar
Key. His pioneering legacy is the founding of
Hansford and the furthering of Fort Denaud's
interests.


Berah Rennolds first married Lewis F.
Sibley and then Clyde Lamb. Cora Catherine
married Claude Prine and then Robert Roy-
er, member of another LaBelle area pioneer
family, who was associated with LaBelle
Motor ComDanv for manv vears. Cora and


Edwin Taylor, the oldest son and born in
Hansford, married Mattie Lee Dana. Their
children were Mildred, who married Raul
Bohac, Edwina, who married Albert Barlow,

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN AT THE

BONITA SPRINGS ROADSHOW YESTERDAY!


By Jason Delong
STAFF WRITER

Yesterday at the Bonita Springs Lodge, hun-
dreds lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold
and jewelry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The
free event is in Bonita Springs all week, buying
gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I
spoke with yesterday said, "It's unbelievable, I
brought in some old coins that had been in a little
cigar box for years and some old herringbone neck-
laces-in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check
for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry box and
dresser for at least 20 years." Another gentleman
brought in an old Fender guitar his father had
bought years ago. The man said, "Dad had less
than fifty bucks in that guitar." The Roadshow expert
that assisted him made a few phone :all:. and a
veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the gui-
"IT'S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME
OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE
CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD
HERRINGBONE NECKLACES-IN LESS
THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A
CHECK FOR $700."
tar for $5.,700.00. The seller c.:.-ir ', "I got an-
other $150.00 for a broken necklace and an old
class ring. It's not every day that someone comes to
town bringing six -h.:.,.:anid dollars with your name
on it."


Gold and silver pour into yesterday's Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years.


If you go to the Roadshow, you can cash-in
your items for competitive prices. Roadshow
representatives will be available to assess and
purchase your items at the Bonita Springs
Lodge, this week through Saturday, in
Bonita Springs.
Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters
Roadshow commented, "Lots of people have items
that they know are valuable but just don't know
where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords, guitars,
pocket watches or just about anything old is valu-
able to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay
big money for those items that they are looking for."
This week's Roadshow is the best place to get
connected with those collectors. The process is free
and anyone can bring items down to the event. If
the Rogdshow experts find items that their collectors
are interested in, :.f-ie: will be made to purchase


them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show
end up selling one or more items at the event.
Antiques and c..ll:ibl-:. are not the only items
the Roadshow is buying. "Gold and silver markets
are soaring," says Archie Davis, a Roadshow repre-
sentative. "Broken jewelry and gold and silver coins
add up very quickly. I just finished working with a
gentleman that had an old class ring, two bracelets
and a handful of silver dollars. His check was for
over $650.00. I would say that there were well
over 100 people in here yesterday that sold their
scrap gold."
The Roadshow continues today :aiii iing at 9am.
The event is free and no appointment is needed.

Cowboys' basketball ends


2010-2011 season


LaBelle Cowboys' Basketball finished
the season 11-15 after a disappointing loss
to Bishop Verot High School last week. The
Cowboys started off the play-offs by defeat-
ing the Gateway Griffins, 69-16. Braxton Ford
led all scorers with 23 points and added to
his assist total with 4.
Ian Kelley and Derrick Bass had 11 points
and 8 rebounds to nail down a good inside
presence. Tyler O'Ferrell had a big night on
the boards with 15. Tyler had 11 of his 15
boards in the first quarter. The Cowboys
then dropped the semi-finals -to Bishop
Verot, 67-38. The Cowboys trailed by only 5
at half when leading scorer and assist man
Braxton Ford rolled his ankle.
The Cowboys played their best defensive
half of the season, but were slowed by the in-
jury of their point guard. Ian Kelley turned in
a good performance on the boards and had
12 blocks in his last three games. Ty O'Ferrell


turned in a solid 11 point and 4 steals for the
Cowboys while Derrick Bass had 8 points,
seven rebounds and two blocks.
Coach Kelley would like to thank all
coaches, parents, fans and players for their
efforts this season in making the year a suc-
cess and would really like to recognize the
J.V this year on-the level of their over all
improvement. The J.V team had only two
Sophomores but still finished over 500. J.V

sew every year while in LaBelle, have taken
on the project as well. In past years, they have
made tons of clothing, protective wheelchair
padding and walker bags for residents at
Oakbrook Nursing Home as community proj-
ects. They have made hundreds of Christmas
stockings and pillowcases for our soldiers.
The Aqua Isles Quilters and Sewers meet
Tuesday from 10 a.m. till noon. They bring
their .own sewing machines, ideas and skill
levels to the sewing table, sharing experience,
knowledge and fun in the process.
They get patterns on line and send the fin-
ished dresses to Nancy Snow in Beaver Dam,
Wisc,, where they are collected and sent off
to Africa. There these dresses go to girls in
desperate need of clothing to wear to school.
Without these dresses they are not able to get
the education that can shape their lives and
communities for the better.
Muriel Galloway of Ontario, Canada, leads
the sewing group. She has been wintering in
Aqua Isles for eight years. Friend Janice Bradt-
miller of Indiana has been coming here for
four years. Most of the ladies in the group have
been sewing since they were young girls.

Look out, Broadway!


Look no further for quality entertainment for the entire family. Experience
Broadway, and be moved right here in LaBelle. The Firehouse Cultural Cen-
ter celebrates its 17th year with the 2011 Broadway Musical Review. Join in
the experience with beloved musical numbers ranging from the 1950s to today.
Show times are March 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20. Shows begin 7 p.m. Friday
and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Call the ticket hotline at 863-673-3066 to
reserve tickets at $12 before the show or $14 at the door. All cast members are
volunteers yet this does not phase their level of dedication and commitment to
their craft. All proceeds go directly to providing quality entertainment for future
shows by seasoned professionals such as Martha Pierce and Linda Reecer.
Both these women have one thing in common a love and zest for music from an
early age. Linda started piano lessons at six years old, despite financial stress.
Her family did whatever they could to -ensure her musical talents. She was a
nurse for 33 years and says the music helped ease the stress of her job. Martha
started piano lessons at five years old, thanks to the help of her talented grand-
mother. She is a Texas native and came to manage Riverside Retreat Methodist
camp 11 years ago. She moved to LaBelle and fell in love with the area as so
many have. For this upcoming production rehearsals have been taking place
since early January. Director Nick Fidanza is a perfectionist, and all who have
worked with him have the utmost respect and appreciation for him. From left:
Linda Reecer, Martha Pierce and Jack Neitzke rehearse for their performance.

and Edwin Taylor, Jr., who married Mary
Lee Barlow. Ed Rennolds ran the local Cities
Service Oil Company bulk plant for many
years until his death in 1962.
Earl Eugene first married Lola Stewart
and then Lucy Bowen. Earl and Lola had
two sons: Harold Eugene Rennolds, who
married Zelda Martin, and Leland Ferris
Rennolds, who married Brenda Bledsoe.
Paul Meschach, the third son and also
born in Hansford, married Ethel Cook, and
they became the parents of Doris Ruth,
who first married Robert Sherman Hansen
and then Perry Cutshall, Larry, who mar-
ried Margaret Holt; Paula Ann, who marred
Donald Brown, and Catherine Lena, who
married Archie Morrison and then Robert
Howard and Jeff Miller after Robert's death.
Paul was affiliated with Yeoman's Standard
Oil for many years and Eliza was left a wid-


ow with five children at home. Nonethe-
less, she persevered raising her children to
be dependable and self-sufficient. Eliza was
small of stature, but big of heart. She loved
children and music. She was instrumental
in keeping the Rennolds family intact.
Eliza "Dolly" Rennolds died on March 13,
1984. Her legacy is perseverance in the face
of hardship and adversity, a true pioneer
quality. She was cremated and her ashes
were spread by plane over Hansford where
all of her children were born.
Eugene and Eliza's children remained in
South Florida.
Leon Oscar married Eunice Wilberta
(Bert) Pearce. They had one son, Wilbur
Leon Rennolds, who married Wendy Gay
Palmer. Edwin, Paul, Cora and Leon made
LaBelle their home. Earl moved to Moore
Haven. Wilson and Berah lived in North Fort
Myers.
All of the seven children are now dead,
but their grandchildren, great-grandchil-
dren, and great-great-grandchildren remain.
LaBelle will forever be home to the descen-
dants of Eugene and Eliza Rennolds.

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Rick Pope, Jr. and Armando Cavares III are ready to serve you.

A barbershop just for men


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Men this is for you. A good, old fash-
ioned barber shop. No frills, no fancy stuff,
just guys enjoying the simple pleasure of a
good hair cut and some good guy talk.
If you feel the need for a little guy-type
pampering, try a hot shave by Rick Pope, Jr.
or Armando Cavares III.
These partners just opened LaBelle Bar-
ber Shop at 419 S. Main Street, and are look-
ing forward to bringing back a traditional
barbershop experience. Before barbering,
Rick did odd jobs off and on, and was in
construction. He said he's been cutting hair
since he was a kid and he and his buddies
couldn't get anybody to do surfer cuts for
them. So they started cutting each other's
hair.
Armando got into barbering "back-
wards." He took his girlfriend to sing up at
cosmetology school and ended up register-
ing himself on a whim.
LaBelle Barber Shop 94 cuts their first
week, Rick and Armando said proudly.
The shop has a kids' section so you can
bring the little ones along and they'll have
plenty to keep them occupied while you
take care of your needs.
Rick and Armando are open Monday-Fri-
day 8-7; Saturday 8-5. Tuesday are always

Daisy with her new son Dancer.


Grass Run welcomes Dancer


by Barbara Oehlbeck
We had watched and waited for months
but could see nothing indicating that Daisy's
birthing time was nigh. She galloped around
the inside of the pasture fence as if she were
practicing for a race!
Yesterday upon returning to the house,
I grabbed the donkey book looking for any
sort of clue that might indicate when the
grand event might take place. There was
nothing definitive except the one line that
read: the gestation period for donkeys, is 12
months, which I already knew from read-
ing the book the first time! Of course, all I
could do was make a wild guess as to when
Daisy's pregnancy began so I had no idea
when it would end.
Just as twilight settled in over the land, I
made a running dash to the north pasture
again just to see if I'd missed anything. Ap-
parently Daisy had persuaded Danny to walk
with her, so there they were, walking side
by side, on the far west side of the pasture.
Well, the scene didn't look very promising
so I retraced my steps to the house where
Josie was waiting at the porch steps.
The year was fast slipping away, the days
becoming shorter and the sun making its
appearance though the bare limbs of the cy-
press later and later each morning. My daily
trek to the north pasture revealed no change
in Daisy as far as I could see. She simply
looked as if she'd swallowed two giant bal-
loons with one side being considerably larg-
er than the other. To myself I thought: Oh,
oh, surely this means twins!
So my trips to the pasture became more
and more frequent. This last day of the old
year presented our world with the most stun-
ning display of grandiose sunset colors we'd
ever seen ... stretching completely across the
vast western sky.
The day had been bright and beautiful all
afternoon and I didn't want to see it end.
Apparently Danny felt the same way
when all of a sudden he kicked his hind lees


as high as Daisy's back and let out a series of
honks and brays that echoed loud and clear
from the big swamp all the way across the
north pasture to the road.

I Publi Notic


was not a creature which was a real surprise
because usually when the nights are soft
and warm, which was the case last night, all
the cattle usually huddle under the biggest
oak and don't stir until broad daylight. But
there was no sign of a donkey!
Nevertheless, reluctant to turn back to
garden chores, I kept standing there watch-
ing and waiting.
And then, in only a few minutes, from
the northeast corner at the edge of the cow
pond.
Danny was standing on top of the left-
over fill from the pond, yelling the longest
brays I'd ever heard. He hardly took a breath
between his raucous arpeggios, which aren't
exactly musical but there is a certain sound
of happiness in his braying voice. He didn't
miss a beat.
I kept watching and listening to him and
wondering if perhaps he was trying to tell
me something which I think now was pure-
ly the case!
I kept looking back and forth from Danny
to the surrounding pasture and to the island
of palmettos growing along the east side of
that big pile of fill where Danny was per-
forming.
All of a sudden a group of those palmetto
fronds began waving backing and forth in
a frenzy as if a sudden wind had descend-
ed from somewhere. But that was not the
case.
In seconds, a pointy white nose and
two very long, velvety ears rose above the
fronds followed by a graceful leap of four
long, skinny legs that simply jumped and
hopped back and forth, round and round,
up and down on the green pasture. Those
ears were deep chocolate brown except for
a straight line of white from the base to the
sharp tip at the end. Those four pure white
"feet", did not stop while its mother, Daisy,
simply stood off to the side watching every
move her baby made. Unlike the other ba-
bies, not once did this one seek its mother's
spigots!
As I kept watching this beautiful little
caramel-colored new born, I was trying to
think of a suitable name but somehow my
brain was devoid of name inspiration. So I
gave up and headed back to the garden. As
I kept racking my thoughts trying to think of
a fittin' name, I stopped, looked back to the
pasture and there was the baby still going
through the same dancing antics.
That's when inspiration struck! Dancer!
This little creature's name had to be "Danc-
er."
After all, it did not just wander into this
world, it came in at full speed dancing! And
then I thought, the name "Dancer" would fit
boy or girl. As usual, it's all but impossible
to tell whether a new born donkey baby is
a boy or girl.
When I returned to the pasture a couple
hours later, "Dancer" was still dancing, but
every few minutes it went to its mother for
donkey nourishment, yet its feet were still
dancing.
I couldn't help but think that of all the
New Year's gifts which had come our way
the very best was Daisy's gift of "Dancer".
Of course, twins would have been twice as
good at which time I had to remind me that
this is a brand new year and just maybe it'll
be the year for twins at Grassy Run.

Hendry/Glades Health Department discusses HPV


By Pat Dobbins
Recently, the Health Department has re-
ceived several calls requesting that an article
be written about HPV What is Genital HPV
Infection? Genital human papillomavirus
(also called HPV) is the most common sex-
ually transmitted infection. There are more
than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital
areas of both males and females. Most peo-
ple who become infected with HPV don't
even know they have it.

HPV is different
than herpes or HIV
There are HPV tests on the market that
are only used to help screen for cervical
cancer. (Some HPV types can cause cervical
cancer) There is no general test for men or
women to check one's overall "HPV status."
Most of the time, HPV can go away on its
own, without causing any health problems.
A person can have HPV even if years have
passed since he or she had sexual contact
with an infected person. Most infected per-
sons'do not realize they are infected or that
they are passing the virus on to a sex partner.
But there is no way to know which people
who get HPV will go on to develop cancer or
other health problems.

HPV is passed on
through genital contact,
most often during vaginal
and anal sex. HPV may also
be passed on during oral
sex. HPV can be passed
on between straight and
same-sex partners-even
when the infected partner


has no signs or symptoms.
There are several ways that people can
lower their chances of getting HPV. HPV vac-
cines ("shots") are available for males and
females to protect against the types of HPV
that most commonly cause health prob-
lems. For those who choose to be sexually
active, condoms may lower the risk of HPV
infection. To be most effective, they should


be used with every sex act, from start to fin-
ish. People can also lower their chances of
getting HPV by being in a faithful relation-
ship with one partner; limiting their number
of sex partners; and choosing a partner who
has had no or few prior sex partners.
Always talk to your healthcare provider to
get more information about health options
available to you and about the HPV vaccine.

Picayune Stand marks milestone

in Everglades Restoration


JACKSONVILLE, FLA. Federal and state
leaders were among the speakers at the
ground breaking celebration for the Pica-
yune Strand Restoration Project Feb. 18.
Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Interior;
U.S. Rep. David Rivera; Terrence C. "Rock"
Salt, principal deputy assistant secretary
of the Army for civil works; and Eric Buer-
mann, chair of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD), were among
approximately eight speakers. The event
featured an optional bus tour of the project
site following the ceremony.
The Picayune Strand Restoration Project
is a collaborative effort of local, state and
federal governments, and will restore an
area that is considered an. ecological jewel
of southwest Florida.
The 55,000-acre project site was once
slated to be a housing development. In the
1960s and early 1970s, 279 miles of roads
and 48 miles of canals were built. The hous-
ing development failed. But these roads and
four large canals have over-drained the area,
resulting in the reduction of aquifer recharge,
greatly increased freshwater point source
discharges to the receiving estuaries to the
south, invasion by upland vegetation, loss of
ecological connectivity and associated habi-
tat, and increased frequency of forest fires.
In 1974, Collier County commissioned the
first study to determine how to reverse the
impacts of the failed housing development.
In 1985, the state of Florida began purchas-
ing the lots to allow for the area's restora-
tion. Congress authorized the Picayune
Strand Restoration Project in 2007 as part
of the Comprehensive Everglades Restora-
tion Plan (CERP). The South Florida Water
Management District expedited construction
by filling in and plugging seven miles of the
Prairie Canal and completing approximately
25 percent of the road removal.
In January 2010, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, Jacksonville District broke ground
on the first of three federal construction con-
tracts. The initial $53 million Merritt Canal
Pump Station Project will build a pump sta-
tion, remove 95 miles of roads and install
55 plugs in the Merritt Canal. This project is
well under way today.


On Feb. 18, the Corps of Engineers, SFW-
MD and other partners broke ground on the
second major federal construction contract.
The $79 million Faka Union Canal Pump
Station Project will build a pump station,
remove more roadway, and continue the ca-
nal plugging. The third federal construction
contract will be awarded for the Miller Canal
Pump Station in the future. When complet-
ed, the project will feature three major pump
stations, removal of 260 miles of roads and
filling in of 42 miles of canals.
"With the start of construction on the
Faka Union Canal Pump Station, our federal
partners at the Corps are further building on
the significant restoration progress that has
already been made at the Picayune Strand,"
said SFWMD Governing-Board Chair Eric
Buermann. "This project provides an excel-
lent example of the benefits that can be real-
ized for south Florida's ecosystem through
the cooperative efforts of the District, the
state of Florida and the Corps."
"This project marks a major milestone
in Everglades restoration," said Col. Al Pan-
tano, commander of the Jacksonville District
of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. "The
Picayune Strand Restoration Project is the
first Comprehensive Everglades Restoration
Plan project under construction and Faka
Union is the largest of the three federal con-
struction contracts," added Pantano, who is
also speaking at the event.
When complete, the Picayune Strand
Restoration Project will restore natural wa-
ter flows over an 85-square-mile area. The
project will improve the area's hydrology,
allow for the return of more balanced plant
communities, increase aquifer recharge, and
send fresh water in a more natural manner
to the coastal estuaries.
The project is also critical to the survival
of the endangered Florida panther. There
are an estimated 100 to 160 adults left in
the wild, with the only breeding population
living in southwest Florida. The project will
restore valuable panther habitat. It will also
connect many public parks, refuges and pre-
serves, to allow an uninterrupted wilderness
corridor for the panther essential as the
panther requires a large territory.


Gates of safety?

The Caloosa Humane So-
ciety is in the midst of a
complete renovation and
restructuring. One of the
first major safety issues
they want to address is the
safety of the animals. These
rusty kennel gates create
a hazard, being patched
together piece meal to
try to secure the animals.
The society hopes to raise
enough money to replace
the double gates on each
of its 26 kennels at a cost
of $400 per gate. A plaque
acknowledging the gener-
osity of the individual or
business donor will be af-
fixed to each replacement
gate.
Below: Ceilings are also in
bad shape, attracting mold
and mildew. If you want to
help, you can call the Ca-
loosa Humane Society at
