Thursday, October 6, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 40 See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Twenty-six-year-old Christy Williams of LaBelle admitted to Hendry County deputies that she stabbed her boyfriend the night of Sept. 29 and has been charged with willful premeditated homicide. The victim, 31-year-old Donald Ash Harris, had been stabbed once in the left chest. According to sheriff’s reports, deputies responded to a hysterical 911 call placed at 10:45 p.m. by Ms. Williams at 3609 SR 29S, trailer 1. In it she reportedly said she had stabbed her boyfriend and he wasn’t breathing. She also said it was an accident. Sgt. William Grif n reported that he arrived at the scene about 11:40 p.m. and met Deputy C. McClelland and Sgt. G. Elver there. EMS personnel had already been there and left. The report indicates that the victim was lying face up inside a screen door, and at the base of steps leading into the single wide trailer. He had one horizontal stab wound in the left chest about a half inch wide. The victim was wearing gray sweat pants, a blue T-shirt with brown work-type boots and dark socks. There was a small amount of blood spatter on the concrete by the body. Inside the trailer, there was a knife with a black handle and serrated edge on a table by the TV. It was about eight inches long with red liquid adhering to it. The three adults were inside the trailer were each interviewed by of cers. Melissa Barrett, 45, Lloyd Crig, 62, and Joseph Coe eld, 71. Of cers were told that the victim was drunk, loud and aggressive; that he and Ms. Williams had had previous altercations. Reportedly, none of them heard or saw what happened that night. Ms. Williams told of cers that he had her pinned on the bed and when she got free she went to the table and picked up the knife Mr. Harris had left there earlier. He had been using it to try to remove a wooden lock from the door. She told of cers she took the knife to scare him away and protect herself. She grabbed the knife, turned toward him as he approached and lunged forward. She also told them he had been arrested twice previously for domestic violence. Deputies investigate stabbing death by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Today, Thursday, Oct. 6, Florida Department of Transportation staff will hold a workshop from 4:306:30 p.m. at LaBelle Civic Center seeking public input into planning access management for the upcoming four-laning of SR 80. The workship includes the next portion of SR 80 to be four-laned west of LaBelle from Birchwood Parkway to Dalton Lane. The department is currently in the process of designing the project and placing access points and median openings for side streets and so on. The PD&E was done in 2005. Now it’s time to take a harder look at the particulars of that section of highway and staff wants to hear the community’s thoughts about where access points will be most appropriate. Proposed locations for access points include: Birchwood Parkway full median Cedarwood Parkway full median Give input on SR 80 accessSee Access — Page 2 Caloosa Belle/ Dale ConyersPeek-A-Boo!You know it’s fall when the temperature nally gets a little more comfortable and the big ol’ pumpkins come out! Debbie Tolar enjoyed her excursion around the First Baptist Church’s Pumpkin Patch. All are invited to the big grand opening Oct. 8 from 10-6, but it’s open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m. Come on out for the family fun even hayrides! (Hmm is that a little frost on that pumpkin?) by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their September 27 meeting, the Hendr y County Board of County Commissioners decided to stop chasing the FEMA “rabbit hole” funding to replace the sub-of ce in Clewiston. Since 2005, when Hurricane Wilma made the old sub-of ce unusable, the county has rented space at the old K-Mart Plaza on US 27 to house county of cials on the eastern side o f the county. The board is taking up a health department offer to share its facility at 1100 S. Olympia in Clewiston.East County of cesA small committee toured the building and is coming up with a plan to partition the facility in half to accommodate both the count y of ces and the health department. The committee feels there should be enough space for all the county of ces except the sheriff’s of ce. The sheriff’s of ce is expected to relocate to the old health department at 100 E. El Paso in Clewiston. East county of ces to moveSee Move — Page 2

The board transferred $595,000 from the disaster fund to purchase the old Alico headquarters on Main Street. This will save some $300,000 per year the county has been spending to lease of ces at the Courthouse Square.New radio systemThe county will use money from its ne and forfeiture fund, MSBU and general fund to pay $287,549 for a new 800 MHz radio system required by the state for emergency transmissions. First comes a $29,000 down payment, but the board also plans to apply for grants and appropriations.East Rec DistrictThe City of Clewiston asked the county to share costs of the East Hendry County Rec District. Clewiston Mayor Rick Miller told the commissioners that the rec district facilities are mainly used by county residents and asked for a $50,000 county contribution to the district's bottom line. The request was approved, however, commissioners also want the district to " x" its nances by next year. The district is considering using the Western Rec District as a model for its restructuring. A workshop has been scheduled to discuss the possibilities Nov. 8 at 4 p.m. at Clewiston City Hall. The next regular meeting will be held at the Pioneer Community Center Tuesday, Oct. 11, 5 p.m.In other business:Commissioner Janet Taylor of District 1 announced she is taking a leave of absence until her throat mends. She continues to struggle with her voice for the past six months after an operation. She said she will come back for a major issue, if necessary. A special exception was granted to put in a horticulture recycling site at 7261 SR 80W. The facility was authorized by Florid a Department of Environmental Protection in 2008, however the county never approved it. Owner Matt Miller said former County Planning Director Lynne Rodriguez told him the operation was permissible in 2005. However, no records could be found from an y meeting. The owner will have to complete an application for the special exception and site improvement plan as well as pay advertising costs. Inwood Road SW directional Cowboy Way full median Gulf Groves directional Double Eagle Sod Farm full median Ranch Access Road (gated) directional Dalton Lane SW eastbound left turn only Full median means anyone approaching that intersection will be able to go straight or make any legal turn there. Directional means east and west bound traf c on SR 80 may make left turns at that point. Traf c approaching SR 80 from side streets may only make right onto SR 80. V ehicles may not cross SR 80 on that side street and go straight to the other side. U turns may be executed at either full median or directional access points. It is unclear when construction will commence, but it should take about a year to complete once begun. FDOT hopes to see property owners and any interested members of the community at this meeting. Letters have been sent to property owners concerning this meeting. There will be no formal presentation at this meeting, just an open house providing one-on-one information from FDOT staff. Dalton Lane will be the terminus of this section of the four-laning project. The next section will be from Dalton Lane to Indian Hills. FDOT spokesperson Debbie Tower reminds everyone that four-laning will increase the capacity of SR 80, but safety concerns will require that access be somewhat limited. The key is to balance safety with ef cient movement, she said. Tickets are on sale now for the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet Oct. 17. The event will be held at the LaBelle Civic Center at 6:30 p.m. Hendry County Economic Development Council Director Gregg Gillman will be the speaker for the evening.

Please help out with this very popular community effort to provide a special treat for LaBelle's kids. Piles of that wintertime favorite snow is the big draw for kids and gives many parents a chance to watch their kids relive the kind of winter fun they had as children. It's a great time for everyone with or without White Christmas memories. However, even Santa's getting a little strapped in this economy and, unlike up North, snow in Southwest Florida is mighty expensive. If you can manage to make a donation for the snow this year, please call Sara at the chamber, 675-0125. Join the chamber for its annual banquet The SCF Committee chose a theme and poster for the 2012 festival at its Monday night meeting. "Swamp Cabbage Festival Spanning Time" is the theme. The poster, submitted by Dale Conyers and Patty Brant, features the LaBelle Bridge over the waters of the Caloosahatchee. Float builders, start your engines! Serious planning time has begun. The next step for the committee is to choose the Pioneer Family and Grand Marshal. Candidates for the Pioneer Family should have supported the LaBelle community for 60-70 years. The Grand Marshal is an individual who has made great contributions to the community. The next SCF meeting will be Monday, Nov. 7, at 6:30 p.m. at city hall. All are welcome.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept.20, 2011)--The United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades has announced that 17 agencies in Lee, Hendry and Glades counties will receive $361,342 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs. The United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades manages the program and coordinates the distribution of the funds. A local board is charged with allocating the funds appropriated by Congress to expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in highneed areas. The local board determines how the funds awarded to this area are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local human serv ice agencies in the area. Some of the local agencies have already received their funds. Cliff Smith, President of the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades stated, “The emergency food and shelter funds are being put to work where they are needed the most, and the administrative costs of getting the funds to agencies that actually provide emergency food and shelter is only 2 percent of the total received. “These funds come to us at a time when the number of local citizens needing services has substantially increased because of high unemployment and serious economic problems in our community. The funds will help feed hungry people, ll food pantries and provide shelter to the men, women, and children who are hurting the most,” Smith continued. The agencies that have received, or will receive assistance include the following: ACT (Abuse Counseling & Treatment) $3,996; Amigos Center $4,662; Bonita Springs Assistance $13,321; CCMI (Community Cooperative Ministries) $33,304; Cape Coral Caring Center $11,989; F.I.S.H. of Pine Island $4,662; F.I.S.H. of Sanibel $8,692; Harry Chapin Food Bank $128,480.

The September 29 event w as the second joint meeting for the Hendry and Glades Counties Democratic Executive Committees. Joe Thomas, Chair of the Hendry County Democrats, said that the two county political groups would continue to rotate their monthly meetings between LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore Haven. Explaining why the combined meetings, Thomas said, “Hendry and Glades County Democrats have a lot in common. We share many issues and organizing challenges. A nd it’s just a lot more fun to get together as a larger group in a more social setting. It encourages more people to come out and meet one another.” State party leaders Dee Dee Smith and Dave Dew attended to represent Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith. Smith emphasized the need for Democrats to work enthusiastically to elect their candidates in the hard-fought political arena that is the American two-party system. But she reminded the group that both parties are citizens working for a better nation and there is no place for hostility between fellow Americans. Dew urged Hendry and Glades County Democrats to take a more active role by attending the Democratic Party state convention scheduled for October 28-30 at the Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World. The rst night of the convention features a dinner with Vice President Biden as the keynote speaker. Those wanting to participate in Democratic Party events and projects are invited to contact Ellen Hawk Geake at 863-983-2922, info@GladesDemocrats.com or Joe Thomas at 863-612-0413, info@HendryDemocrats.com.

Farmworkers Programby Matt KindermannThe Florida Department of Education Farmworker Jobs and Education Program (FJEP) is designed to pay for vocational education and training for seasonal and migrant farm workers and their family members. Funding is provided by the Department of Labor and is used to pay for tuition, books, fees, required materials and other costs associated with attendance at programs sponsored by non-pro t agencies, local governments, school districts, technical centers and colleges. To be eligible for the program you must be a US Citizen or a Registered Alien and have received wages from farm work within the last two years. Visa holders are not eligible. To be screened for services, you should make an appointment to see the LaBelle area Facilitator, Maribel Perez at 863-6129863. Maribel is bilingual and available in LaBelle on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by appointment. Applicants should bring their identi cation, along with proof of eligibility such as pay stubs, W-2s, 1099s or employment veri cation letters. Family members must also provide the same veri cations as there are family income guidelines for eligibility. Maribel currently has 45 people receiving services in Hendry County that are enrolled in programs such as culinary arts, LPN, business management, early childhood development and heavy equipment maintenance. If you are a farm worker, or a family member of a farm worker, and are interested in pursuing vocational training or GED completion, make an appointment today. The seasonal and migrant community makes up about 3,000 to 4,000 local workers annually. Including their family members, this community could account for up to 23 percent of the entire County population. Most people in this community live below the poverty line and some depend on social assistance. Imagine the positive economic impact on the region if even a small portion of this community were helped towards economic self-suf ciency, better pay and a stable employment future. If you know of someone who could bene t from this program, please pass the word.

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 journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the communitys deliberation of public issues.We Pledgeƒ€To operate this newspaper as a public trust €To help our community become a better place to live and work, through our dedication to conscientious journalism. €To provide the information citizens need to make their own intelligent decisions about public issues. €To report the news with honesty, accuracy, purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness 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 potential 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. Bring lawmaking back to citizensMaybe it's not the number of laws that get passed or the parties that are responsible for passing them, that is important. Maybe lawmaking should be brought back to the citizens as opposed to having socalled "representatives" doing the bidding of special interests of themselves or of a few others. When the recreation board convened recently, the audiences of both locations (LaBelle and Clewiston) were in unanimous agreement that the proposed tax increase w ould have more of a negative impact upon the citizens of Hendry County than the imagined bene ts. But both boards decided that the people's interests and desires were not as wise as their own. It's understandable that if I were receiving money or favors from such a program I might be tempted to sport that same special w isdom that the board members exhibited. But that would mean that I would have to ignore all those who represented the unemployed, poor or just fed-up. Just maybe, we could pass a law that w ould buy hearing aids for all the board members and binoculars that would allow them to see past their own noses and gure out that these meetings are attended by citizens who need responsive representatives and not governmental bullies. There are enough bullies in the world already. We don't need them in government in such a position to threaten us by taking our homes if we don't or can't give them the gold they have such a fever for. Now, they have increased the property tax, when other counties' commissioners under similar circumstances have listened to their citizens and decided that this just might be a bad time to do so. Maybe we should also buy a tv set or a newspaper subscription for the commissioners so they can keep up with the rest of the world. Aren't they able to realize that if the other counties who have less unemployment than we do, have given their citizens a break, maybe our commissioners who have the most unemployed in the entire state can do likewise? Please help out a county commissioner by sending them a hearing aid, binoculars, paper subscription or tv (I think we might be pressing our luck if we sent them a book on "Logic"). And if that fails, maybe we can help them out at election time, if you get my drift. Darrell Bai r Letter to the Editor C a r e e r C o r n e r Career Corner Matthew Kindermann by Pat DobbinsYou may start seeing more of the pink ribbons around town to help with the education about breast cancer and its prevention. October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A ccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 190,000 new cases of breast cancer were reported nationwide in 2006 and more than 41,000 women died from the disease. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among adult women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death among women. It is estimated that one of every eight adult women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. The growth becomes uncontrollable without treatment, ultimately resulting in the formation of a tumor. A tumor can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Additionally, a cancer growth can also be considered "noninvasive," which means that it is con ned to the infected area or "invasive," which means that it has spread to surrounding breast tissue. This can determine the severity of disease upon detection. Breast cancer can be preventable with early detection. It is recommended that all women from the ages 50-74 should have a mammogram every two years, and women between the ages of 40-50 years should talk with their health care provider about when to start screening. It may be necessary for you to have earlier screening or more frequent screening if you have a family history of breast cancer. Breast cancer risk is linked to age, ethnicity and family history of disease. The risk of cancer increases with age. Research has shown that although white women are more likely to get breast cancer, African American women are the most likely to die of it. Minority women are most likely to have advanced breast cancer when the cancer is rst discovered. Studies have shown that women of other ethnic backgrounds such as Asian, Hispanic and Native American have a lower risk of developing and dying from breast cancer than white women and African American women. Please get to know your family health history. If a close family member (such as your mother, father, grandmother, sister or aunt) has had breast cancer, the risk for other family members getting breast cancer may be higher. If you think you may be at increased risk, talk to your health care provider. It ma y be decided that you should be tested earlier or more frequently than the standard recommendations. For more information about breast cancer or to nd out how to get a free or low-cost mammogram, go to www.cdc.gov/cancer / breast or call the CDC at 1-800-CDC-INFO. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month did you have a mammogram? Patricia Dobbins

The strategic planning meeting was facilitated by Gregg Gillman, Hendry County Economic Development director. Directors con rmed their commitment to keep the Education Center operating and build the campus on Helms Road. At the facilitator’s direction the board was encouraged to enhance the existing resources and focus on the ECSWF’s mission and vision. The board reviewed those businesses and agencies and continues to build those partnerships. The rst step identi ed by the board was the need to improve public relations and market the school’s mission to the community over the next two months. The Captain Hendry Dinner, scheduled for the evening of December 1, 2011, is the main fundraiser for the ed center and provides funding for day to day operations. Local support for that event is of paramount importance.

by Steve HeinLHS Assistant Coach Cross Country It always fascinates spectators to see the mass of humanity being launched as the gun res at a cross country meet. Envision if you can; the eld awash in multi-color splendor as each school proudly displays their uniform colors, as runners charge out from the starting line. It is an unbelievable burst of color and a feast for the eyes as a herd of runners rumble by. This is cross country racing. Here at LHS we have two great coaches. In fact, last year's varsity boys' team went to the Florida State Cross Country Championship under the tutelage of Head Coach Jef Frost. That's huge LaBelle, huge, for a small school of this size to go all the way. Coach Frost is now in his 17th year of coaching and teaching at LaBelle High School. The girls team is led by Coach Jenny McClain, who herself is a tremendous runner, as one of the varsity boy runners claimed "she is a beast to run with." Coach McClain runs right alongside the varsity boys on all their long run days. This year has shown a tremendous increase with the girls' team participation. In fact, it is up over 200 percent as the running bug has hit the girls hard. Girls went from six runners in 2010 to 20 in 2011. Coach McClain believes that the "increase in team numbers could be attributed to the team going to the state championship last year." The truth is Coach Frost has carefully created a culture of distance running at LHS. "It is a pleasure to coach all the great kids we have this year. It makes my fall season," relays Frost. Cross country training involves a lot more than just running. Weight training, stretching, plyometrics, with core/abdominal workouts (that use a small medicine ball) are all included in Coach Frost's weekly workout regimen. Bring in the "form running," speed workouts, running the bleachers and charging up sandhills, you begin to get the picture of what cross country training is all about! Temporary soreness can be a distinct by-product from a Frost workout. New this year is also the early morning runs for the boys twice a week. Remember, by the end of cross country season the boys' varsity will have logged almost four hundred miles. On Thursday, Sept. 21, LHS won the cross country meet at Lake Placid High School. Hats off to senior Ashley Golemme and Junior Erick Medina as our top nishers. Then again on October 1 Erick Medina nished rst overall in the meet at Mariner High School with a time of 16:46. With much of the season to come things are going to get harder yet, said Coach Frost. One highlight of the year will be LaBelle running in the Walt Disney World Invitational this month, where the competition will prove to be extremely tough with teams from around the country participating. If you would like to experience the thrill of cross country for yourself, the 17th annual Caloosa Chase 5k Run will be held on Saturday, October 22, at 8 a.m. This is an "open" race for anyone from the community. Runners are known to come all the way from Ft. Myers to run this event. This is a fund raiser for the cross country team here at the high school and all registered runners will receive a beautiful tee-shirt! For more information, please call the high school at 674-4120 or stop by for a registration form. So lace up, bring the kids to run (or watch!). If history is any indicator, the Caloosa Chase 5k often signals one of the very rst cool mornings of the year. Let's hear it for great running weather yet to come. $10$3$10 WITH THIS COUPONSUMMER SPECIALS!We do computerized wheel alignments € We now sell tires!Randys Garage, Inc.€ 863-675-1032737 S.

The team was led by Nick Wegscheid's 49, Mark Sloan and Ronnie Burton each shot 50 and the scoring was rounded out w ith Ander Hernandez's 53. Alton Burton and Jerrod Miller also posted a 62 and 63, respectively. The team beat Ahfachkee 235, Clewiston 240 and Moore Haven 252. This will become an annual event and the team hopes to hold on to the title for a while. The golf team is now 8-4 and working to get better. This year we have 12 players forming one of the biggest teams ever. Team Members are: Varsity: Nick Wegscheid, Alton Burton, Mark Sloan, Ander Hernandez, Ronnie Burton and Jarred Miller. Junior Varsity: Jessie Imhoff, Brandon Herrero, Jonathon Pfriender, Jerry Schauer, Christian Gause and Zach Alaimo. Photographer: Kailane Hernandez.

The golf team would like to take this time to thank the management and owners of The Glades Resort and Scotty Farquharson for their continued support of our golf program. The players would also like to thank their teachers for their understanding and cooperation with the class time they have missed. LHS Boys golf team wins championship event Submitted photo The LaBelle Boys Golf Team won the inaugural Hendry/Glades County Championship at Clewiston Country Club. A ‘tip of the hat’ to the LHS cross country team The LaBelle Cowboys fell to district foe Dunbar 34-13 this past Friday. While playing tough for most of the game the Cowboys made too many mistakes and allowed too many big plays. The Tigers were fueled by an 84-yard scoring pass on the rst play of the game and they continued to attack the Cowboys through the air en route to their win. The Cowboys struggled with errant punt snaps and one blocked punt that gave Dunbar great eld position. Some highlights for the Cowboys were David Antunez's season long eld goal (42 yards) and kick return (90 yards).

About the Conservancy of Southwest Florida: The Conservancy of Southwest Florida began in 1964 when community leaders came together to defeat a proposed "Road to Nowhere" and spearheaded the acquisition and protection of Rookery Bay. The Conservancy is a not-for-pro t grassroots organization focused on the critical environmental issues of the Southwest Florida region --water, land and wildlife. This is accomplished through the combined efforts of environmental education, science and research, policy and advocacy and wildlife rehabilitation. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic treats more than 2,400 injured, sick and orphaned animals each year and releases about half back into their native habitats. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida and Nature Center is located in Naples, Florida at 1450 Merrihue Drive, off Goodlette-Frank Road at 14th Avenue North. For information about the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, call 239-262-0304 or www.conservancy.org. Nature Center to open early by Pudge LehmanThe holidays are fast approaching.

It never produces any candy corn bushes but every year I bravely tr y Y'all know I was born on Halloween and my rst tooth looked identically like a candy corn. I truly love them. To light candles deep in a jar use a piece of uncooked spaghetti or for a birthday cake with a lot of candles, let's say 76 or so, do the same. Otherwise you use up a whole book of matches. To give gravy a nice deep color use leftover coffee instead of water. W itches Brew
