Thursday, August 11, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89. 32 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Under a consent order from FDIC since June 16, the First Bank of Clewiston, with branches in Clewiston, LaBelle and Riverdale, is working toward bringing its loan process back into balance. According to First Bank Chairman and CEO Miller Couse, for customers, this will mean business as usual. There are no restrictions on loans or deposits. In fact, First Bank is still looking for residential and commercial loans to make, he said. According to Mr. Couse, bank staff has been working on First Bank’s problems for about a year and a half. The consent order merely formalizes the process. In an interview on Monday, Mr. Couse and First Bank President Carey Soud said half the banks in Florida are under consent orders at this time due to the economic climate. They said no management or personnel changes are expected during this process. Mr. Soud hoped to halt some public perception that FDIC had closed First Bank a perception he said is “absolutely not true.” First Bank expects to be in full compliance with the consent order by the end of the year. However, FDIC monitoring will continue for approximately another year. Mr. Miller said there are some 20 items listed in the consent order, about half concern policies and procedures that have already been recti ed. The FDIC is requiring First Bank to raise and maintain its capital to at least 8 percent of its total assets. Currently at 7.3 percent, First Bank’s directors expect to reach the 8 percent mark by the end of December. According to information from First Bank, the FDIC considers a bank with capital above 5 percent to be “well capitalized.” It will not close a bank unless its capital slips under 3 percent. Both men state that First Bank was pro table in July and expect it to remain so through December. The bank did lose money in 2010. The consent order requires First Bank to decrease its classi ed loans (those that are in foreclosure, are signi cantly past due or loans on First Bank ‘turning corner’ newszap.comFree SpeechFree AdsSee Page 4 for information about how to contact the newspaper See Bank — Page 2 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their August 4 meeting, LaBelle city commissioners set the tentative millage rate at the rollback rate of 3.3810 for the TRIM notice, which will come out in a couple weeks. The TRIM notice is sent out by the Property Appraiser’s Of ce and itemizes tentative tax bills for the year. For a number of years the city commission has held the line at 3 mills, however, the continuing decrease in the city’s property values could force the increase. The rollback rate, which is the rate necessary to bring in the same amount of taxes as the previous year, will balance the city’s budget. However, Mayor Paul Puletti expressed concern over local residents who continue to struggle in this economy, and noted that the nal millage may still be changed at a public hearing next month. The next budget workshop is set for 7 p.m. August 18. The city commissioners are expecting to raise the assessment rates for recreation by $25 to raise funds for a proposed city golf course. At this time, residents pay $75 per year in recreation assessments. The new assessment would also include commercial properties. The course is to be located adjacent to the Sports ComCity irts with increasing millage Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantFour of Mayor Paul Puletti’s former students took part in his swearing in ceremony August 4.

The nal rate will not be set until next month. The rollback rate, the millage necessary to acrue the same amount of tax monies as the previous year, is 6.8197. However, property values decreased another 4.5 percent since last year, a continuing trend. In 2006-07 property taxes raised about $17 million; in 2010 it was down to about $13 million. If the county stayed at 6.5 mills, only about $11 million would be raised in property taxes. Overall, taxes have decreased some $5.3 million from 2007-2011. TRIM notices are due out at the end of the month. The rst budget public hearing will be in Clewiston Sept. 13, 5:30 p.m. The nal hearing will be in LaBelle Sept. 27 at 5:30 p.m. Tentative millage rate upSee City — Page 2

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Since Alico moved its headquarters to Fort Myers, the county has been considering buying its former of ces on South Main Street to alleviate the need for more county of ce space. County Administrator Judi Kennington-Korf said the county could set up an internal loan, borrowing money from the emergency fund and repaying it over the next ve years. No decision has been reached on the possible purchase. Don Schrotenboer, President of Alico Land Development, appeared before the board, explaining that the company was not turning its back on Hendry County by moving the "corporate ag" out. He said some 81 percent of Alico's property is in Hendry County, which translates into about 48 percent of its gross revenue. Half of Alico's operational staff lives in Hendry County. He said Hendry County has been historically important to Alico and will continue to be to its future. Hendry County is the recipient o f considerable taxes from Alico and the company remains involved and committed to the Hendry County Economic Development Council and to its support of LaBelle High School scholarships and United Way. The move was a business decision, he said, and explained that the company's shareholders expect a higher return on their investment and agriculture is not providing the same kind of returns it once did. Alico is moving away from agriculture but added, "We could not be more proud to be in Hendry County." County considers Alico of ce SHEWMAKERANIMALHOSPITAL1095 N.

Mr. Couse explained that a lot of the bank's old customers continue repaying their loans even though they're struggling nancially. As a state chartered bank, First Bank is covered by dual regulators both the FDIC and the Florida Of ce of Finance Regulation. Although FDIC bank ratings are not public, there are public services that rate banks from 0-5 stars ( ve being the best). Mr. Couse said that First Bank is currently at two stars meaning it is ranked below its peer group. These ratings are based on capital and earnings and are updated quarterly. None of this will affect the day-to-day operation of the bank, Mr. Soud reiterated. Both men pointed to the real estate decline as the main reason for the consent order. They said that the value of the bank's collateral is down by about 50 percent, re ecting the general downturn in real estate. Mr. Couse described it this way: capital to sustain loans is like "gas in the tank" to run the process. When the loan/loss reserve is low, it puts the process at risk. Banks are required to keep what is called an Allowance for Loans and Leases (ALLL) reserves for loans the bank does not expect to be able to recover. If the ALLL funds are reduced, the bank must replenish them through income or moving capital to the ALLL account. At this time, First Bank has $3.7 million in loan reserves (2.13 percent of its total loans) to cover troubled loans. Mr. Soud said previously First Bank held just 1.25 percent in its ALLL. Today, it has almost double that gure. First Bank currently has $173 million in loans. Mr. Couse and Mr. Soud agreed that, for the last 1.5 years, 80-85 percent of its loans have been tied to real estate in some wa y agricultural or commercial. Single famil y loans have not been a problem although some residents have been struggling. It is the bank's commercial loans that have contributed to the problem. Businesses have failed and both ag and commercial loans have been secured b y real estate or supporting businesses like construction and developers. Mr. Couse noted that this area has been fortunate to have a strong ag economy for the last two years. First Bank's ag loans have been highly diversi ed in vegetables, citrus, cattle and sugar cane, he added. The main issue, he said, has been the failure to collect loans, which led to a decrease in capital below acceptable levels. In recent years, First Bank expanded into Lee County, which also accounts for some of the losses. First Bank of Clewiston of cers are concerned that the consent order is misunderstood by residents that it is synonymous with closing. First Bank has not failed or been taken over. The bank expects to wor k through the agreed terms in the next 1-2 years. According to The Long Recovery in the South, from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta 2010 Annual Report, "Smaller banks face abundant challenges. But communit y banking has history on its side." plex currently being built on Forrey Road. A vote by the county commission, which also is committed to seeking grant funding for the Sports Complex, paved the way for the city's August 4 action. The board passed resolutions continuing the city's current uniform assessment rates for police, re protection and street lighting for next year The board felt the current rates will be adequate.In other business:Two resolutions, one on the South LaBelle Village and one initiating a new tree landscaping resolution protecting oaks, at the September 8 meeting. That meeting w ill begin at 6 p.m. with the Local Planning Agency. Work to complete the city's wharf project will be delayed by several months due to miscommunications within the Corps of Engineers, Finance Director Ron Zimmerly reported. Mayor Paul Puletti clari ed a recent report that the city spent $500,000 in reserve funds in July. He found that the money actually was used for the nano ltration water system and paving of MLK. In actuality, he said the city's reserve funding had been higher than necessary. He said there is no problem with the city's reserve funding and that the spending was in line with what had been done previously.

If you grew up in Florida, or have been living in here very long, you have encountered that on a routine basis. I recall being in a store once w here someone was talking to another person so loudly, I could hear what w as being said four aisles over. Amazingly, the person with whom that man w as speaking was standing right beside him. Just listen as your neighbor shouts into the phone so loudly you can hear the conversation perfectly sitting in your house some fty paces away. More than likely it is because your neighbor is speaking to someone who isn't wearing their hearing aid (or perhaps it has dead batteries!) What is true of those hard of hearing can also be true of those who have another hardened area within them. I am speaking of a hard heart. Have you ever know anyone w ho had one of those? In 1829, a Philadelphia man named George Wilson robbed the U.S. mails, killing someone in the process. Wilson was arrested, brought to trial, found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged. Some friends interv ened in his behalf and were nally able to obtain a pardon for him from President Andrew Jackson. But, when he was informed of this, George Wilson refused to accept the pardon! The sheriff was unwilling to enact the sentence for how could he hang a pardoned man? An appeal was sent to President Jackson. The perplexed President turned to the United States Supreme Court to decide the case. Chief Justice Marshall ruled that a pardon is a piece of paper, the v alue of which depends on its acceptance by the person implicated. It is hardly to be supposed that a person under the sentence of death would refuse to accept a pardon, but if it is refused, it is then not a pardon. George W ilson must be hanged. So George Wilson w as executed, although his pardon lay on the sheriff's desk. Unbelievable, isn't it? The man was absolutely at liberty to be released as a free person, but, instead chose to not only to be incarcerated, but to die. As stunning as that is to read there is another reality found equally dif cult to comprehend. I am speaking of those who have a hard heart. They refuse to have their inner self softened and reject the gift of grace by refusing the pardon they are offered. According to the Scripture, the love of God makes forgiveness available to any who would humble themselves and ask for mercy. In some ways those with a harden heart are like me when I was a little boy. I came running into the house after playing outside. My mother stopped me and asked what was on my right hand. I replied, "Oh, nothin' just a little mud." My mom then asked if I was planning on getting it off my hand. I thought for a moment and said, "Sure, Mom. I'll just wipe it off with my other hand." There was only one problem with the plan, one dirty hand plus one clean hand equals two dirty hands. Make sense? Many people are like that. I was. They see the evil and wrongs in their life and think they can make themselves clean by bringing the good in their life to bear on the problem. But it doesn't work that way. We all need a way to be made morally and spiritually clean, and we will never succeed in doing it ourselves. The only solution is to be found in the blood of Jesus Christ, which, as 1 John 1:7 says, cleanses us from all sins. Yet, there are those who will debate that Biblical truth and refuse to adhere to this teaching. Such questioning reminds me of a story I read about some time ago. This leading manufacturing company developed a new cake mix that required only water to be added. Tests were run, surveys were made, and the cake mix was found to be of superior quality to the other mixes available. It tasted good, it was easy to use, and it made a moist, tender cake. The company spent large sums of money on an advertising campaign and then released the cake mix to the general market. But few people bought the new mix. The company leaders were shocked for they believed their product was superior to anything else on the shelf. Uncertain as to what the misstep was, the company spent more money on a survey to nd out why the cake mix didn't sell. Based on the results of the data received, the company recalled the mix, made one slight adjustment and released the "revised" cake mix. Here was the problem the " rst" new cake mix required that one add only water. The communication from the general public indicated disbelief that a cake would be worth eating by adding only water a cake had to have at least one egg! So, the cake mix company revised their instructions by saying "just add water and one egg. Results: it outsold any another competitor ve to one! You see, the rst cake mix was just too simple to be believable. People would not accept it. The reality to clear God's truth about release from sin stands on its own. There is nothing to add to what the Bible says about this essential need in everyone's life. Don't be hard of hearing regarding this spiritual truth. Nor is it advisable to be hardhearted. The Bible says forgiveness is ours by grace not by us gaining enough points with God to merit His favor. Exoneration is a gift for the asking. A gift is not earned it is given by one person to another as an expression of love and appreciation. So how's your inner hearing? Is the Lord af rming this to be so within you? Can you sense Him wanting to soften any crusty, dry, cracked, brittle and parched areas in a harden heart? Ask in faith. He will do it by His kindness.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church located 200 yards behind A Country Place restaurant on Highway 80 in LaBelle. The church phone number is 675-HOPE. Be open; Don’t harden your hearing or your heart Finding a Job by Matt KindermannGetting that new job was most likely hard work and required determination and dedication. Now that you're facing your rst day, let's talk about how to keep that job you just got. The rst thing to remember when reporting to work, no matter if it's an of ce or a truck is that your workspace is not your home. Your desk or truck is not really yours. The bookshelf, wall, phone, fax, copier and bathroom are also not yours. Your time from punch in to punch out, is de nitely not yours. Do keep some tasteful pictures of your family around but your space should not look like a pre-school room. Limit your personal phone calls, and not just to 5 minutes or less per call, also limit the number of calls you take during the day. If you have to have a cell phone due to children or other worries, turn it to vibrate. Be cognizant though, if your phone is buzzing every 10 minutes, that's clearly not an emergency and your creating distractions which is going to cause you to stick out. Don't stick out, t in. If your co-workers wear khaki pants and buttoned shirts, wear that. Leave your Mr. T starter-set at home because if your jewelry is constantly jingling, it's another distraction. If you have excessively long nails, beards or hair, get rid of it or hide it. Smile a lot, at all your new co-workers, even those who give you the creeps. Keep your perfume or cologne to a minimum, your co-workers should not be able to nd you in a crowd by following your scent. Don't slump in your chair and don't complain about anything to anyone except your boss, and then only do it in private. Listen more than you speak. When you do speak, make sure you're also not chewing gum at the same time. Be on time for everything If you're going to be late for anything, call someone well in advance. Don't forward any e-mails using the company e-mail, no matter how funn y or cute they are. If you get a cute forwarded e-mail, even from your boss, delete it. Follow the chain of command. Don't "supervisor shop" for the answer your looking for by going to several different managers after the rst one said no. Remember what happened when your dad found out you went to mom after he said no? If you have any questions about how to polish your image, I may be able to help, or at least tell you where you need to go. You may reach me at 863-675-1412 or e-mail me at mkindermann@sw works.org.

Coach Raymond Marroquin recalled all the hard work Kindall Tindall and Courtney Bancroft have put into their softball careers. “I’m proud of them,” he said before they each signed letters of intent to play for their respective college teams. “This is what it’s all about.” He gave their parents due recognition for helping them develop character. He noted that they taught their daughters well. Referring to the success the young women are now enjoying, he added, “It did not come easy to them.” Kindall is the daughter of Mark and Lynnette Tindall. Coach Marroquin noted that the years of practice, honing skills, facing defeats and celebrating victories have made them all a family and, as in any family, memories stand out. He recalled trying to clear and ready a playing eld using a Bobcat a piece of equipment he was unfamiliar with. Seeing him struggle, Kindall jumped up and took over, saying, “I can do that!” And she got it done in short order. Coach Clint Raulerson watched Kindall as she came up through the old Dixie Softball League and recalled that initially her elding technique was a bit “abnormal,” with one hand always in the air. He remembered tying her hands together with a rope during practice till she nally conformed to a more standard technique. The second baseman signed to play for the St. Petersburg Titans that night. She will be studying nursing. Her mother said that Kindall didn’t always want this didn’t care about the next level but when the Cowgirls won the District Championship, something clicked. She’s excited about continuing her softball career and says that softball will always be a part of her life. Coach Marroquin said that Courtney “kept me straight” and reminded him of things he had to do. He said that, before this past season started, Courtney came to him with this promise. “This is my senior year. I’ve got something to prove to everybody and to myself. I refuse to be second to anybody.” Coach Marroquin said Courtney is a leader “they’re both leaders” and very vocal. He told them that nobody can take away their successes. Courtney is headed to Ave Maria University. That was one of two tryouts she and Kindall went to with Coach Marroquin, she said. The Ave Maria coach told them there was 92 percent chance the school would want both the young women. Courtney plans to major in biology and possibly go into pre-physical therapy. She even gets to keep #13! Courtney’s parents are Lisa and Ken Tracy of LaBelle and Gary Bancroft of Naples. Her grandparents are Ganina and Bubb a Urqhart of Immokalee. Courtney’s mom said her daughter has the drive for success. She credits Coach Marroquin with seeing something in Courtney that she didn’t see in herself a capable young woman with talent and a great wor k ethic. Courtney herself said she was worried about letting the coaches down, now she believes in herself. In a few short weeks these young ladies will wear the uniform of a Titan and a Gyrene, but Courtney quickly pointed out, “Once a Cowgirl, always a Cowgirl!” Two Cowgirls move to next level in life, softball Submitted photo/ Tricia BoonePet of the WeekPlease come by Caloosa Humane Society and visit with Sandy, she is a Catahoula Leopard and is about two years old.

Plan for Peace, Love & Paws Gala Did you know that the honey bee's wings stroke about 200 beats per second and that they communicate with each other by dancing? Did you know that the average worker bee produces about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in a lifetime and that it takes one ounce of honey to fuel a bee's ight around the world? Did you know that only worker bees sting, they die after they sting and they only sting when they feel threatened? Miss Renee, from the Curtis Honey Company shared these and many more fun facts about bees in her presentation at Barron Library on Tuesday, August 2. She stressed to the children how important bees are in the production of food in our own area, and that without bees to pollinate fruits and vegetables, many species would cease to exist. Following a very informative presentation, which included Miss Renee wearing her protective hood for working with bees, the children were able to watch honey bees hard at work in their hive. They were also treated to a taste of fresh honey and invited to visit the honey store here in LaBelle to sample many varieties of honey and honey products. Each family was given a full color poster of the many different varieties of bees. A big thank you to Renee and the Curtis Honey Company for taking time to participate in the library program this summer.

Gov. Jennifer Carroll said at a news conference Tuesday. “We hope that retailers and restaurants that offer discounts to military veterans will accept the license with the ‘V’ on it as proof that someone is a veteran.” Here’s what veterans must do when they go to replace or renew their credential:  Bring your DD-214, which shows your honorable discharge from active duty.  Pay a one-time $1 fee, in addition to the replacement or renewal fee.  Visit www.GatherGoGet.com to ensure you have all the other documents required.
