Thursday, December 1, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 48 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Tourism could be one of the best things that can happen to Hendry County. It is th e responsibility of the Tourism Developmen t Council (TDC) to introduce the world to Hendry County’s attractions. From shing on Lake Okeechobee to ag tours, and from the Swamp Cabbage Festival to incredibl e birding opportunities, Hendry County has unique offerings. Pulling in the money these and other activities can generate is the speci c responsibility of the TDC. Recently, Lee McMichael resigned as director of the TDC, leaving Economic Development Council Executiv e Director Gregg Gillman and his board to cover for his loss. The EDC is continuall y looking for ways to increase the tax bas e and provide jobs. However, tourism is speci cally the province of the TDC; its mission is to market Hendry County’s unique characteristics where they will do the most good throughout the country and even the world. Now the EDC is reaching out to both th e LaBelle and Clewiston Chambers of Commerce, seeking the most workable solution to keep the TDC work on track. On Nov. 22 members of the EDC and TDC, as well as the LaBelle and Clewiston Chambers of Commerce, met in a workshop to do just that. Commissioner Karson Turner moderated the workshop. Clewiston members present included Mayor Rick Miller, Commissioner Mali Gardner, City Manager Steve McKown, Mary Ann Martin, Terry Garrels and Clewiston Chamber members. From the LaBelle Chamber of Commerc e President Maureen Jordan, Executive Secretary Sara Townsend and Bryan Beer wer e Hendry seeking tourism Great trees make the holiday!Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantThey may not be from the North Pole, but the Christmas trees Lawrence O’Ferrell delivers to LaBelle every year have brought traditional holiday cheer to local residents for the past 30 years. He began the tradition when he started on the LaBelle Fire Department 1966-68, cutting trees in Alva. That humble beginning developed into some 30 years of traveling to North Carolina to bring back the cream of trees for local celebrations. Frazier rs, Blue Spruce, Douglas rs and more have graced LaBelle homes and businesses, thanks to Lawrence and his family. This year his group unloaded 141 trees at Formerly Yours and another 200 for the Kiwanis Club. Why go to so much effort to bring back trees? “I’ve always loved Christmas trees,” is the simple explanation Lawrence offers. AT RIGHT: Lawrence O’Ferrell gets lots of help unloading this year’s load of Christmas trees, including friends and family after another whirlwind trip to the North Carolina mountains for the best of the crop. Break out the Christmas carols, the egg nog, the decorations! Friday, Dec. 2, Santa returns to LaBelle! Start out the evening with the annual Christmas Parade sponsored by the City of LaBelle. Line up is 4:30 p.m. in the U-Save parking lot. Bring your group, your bike, stroller, oat or just walk from the parking lot down Main Street to Barron Park. Make sure to get all glitzed up for the occasion! Now, to Santa. He’s bringing his special treat from the North Pole snow! So, kids, nd a pair of gloves and a jacket. Jack Frost will most certainly be nipping at your nose at least while you’re climbing all over the snow pile at Barron Park! In the park you’ll also enjoy games and booths. Mom and Dad, bring your camera. Santa just loves to have his picture taken with all those good little boys and girls! Unfortunately, this year there will be a charge for the shing booth and bounce house only. Tickets can be purchased at the park. Just $1 for three tickets! Come hungry ‘cause the chamber will be offering a yummy pulled pork sandwich with chips and drink for $5.Light Up LaBelleTime for the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce’s annual Light Up LaBelle contest. Show us your colors! Nothing brings out the sparkle of Christmas like lots of bright lights twinkling in the dark especially when their combined with Winter Wonderland decorations. There are two categories: residential and business, with two place winners in each category. Pick up an application at the chamber. Judging will be Dec. 20. Santa Claus is coming to town . Friday!

However, since then ideas about restructuring the TDC have surfaced, so the boards decided to revisit that vote. Commissioner Turner laid out four options for the members: 1. Sharing the tourism duties between both chambers, which would do all the marketing for the entire county; 2. Hire a separate TDC director or consultant, who would report to the EDC board. The base salary would come from revenues generated by the bed tax; 3, Give the EDC the contract to do the county’s marketing; 4. Lastly, the county could dispense with major marketing or hiring, continue to collect the bed tax and use it only as requests for grants come in. The county would market itself passively, along with the chambers. The entire system would be revisited at a future time. Members of the LaBelle Chamber, which received late noti cation of the workshop, as well as others in the group requested additional time to explore the options outlined. LaBelle Chamber President Maureen Jordan explained that her group was there to support the good job both chambers have been doing in the county. She also believes that, with a countywide plan, both chambers can rise to the challenge without having to hire a new TDC director. Mary Ann Martin pointed out the differences she sees between chambers of commerce and the TDC. The TDC, she said, has no real of ce or of ce hours an employee is free to go out and market Hendry County whenever and wherever a possibility exists. She felt that the county needs to employ more marketing tactics. One school of thought was that the best plan would be to use Clewiston Chamber Executive Director Jillian Sparks’ marketing experience to ll the county’s tourism marketing needs. Others felt a combination of using both chambers’ resources would be preferable. EDC board member Emily Bates explained that it took over a year to work out a good structure for the EDC. The restructuring of the TDC is an equal challenge and it will take time to “get it right.” In the meantime, the Big O Birding Festival, which is scheduled for March, needs someone to take the reins. LaBelle Chamber Secretary Sara Townsend volunteered to take on the responsibility of elding calls and taking registrations, which are already being requested.

A True AmericanHow Would You Describe a True American? Myself, I see a lot of people that claim to be real Americans. To me the color of neither a person’s skin nor their ancestral tree have much to do with it. Of course, this old citi ed country boy has some different ideas on true Americans. To me a true American gets a lump in their throat every time they hear the Star Spangled Banner played. If they see someone in need or are asked for help by the less fortunate, if they can’t help they will offer to help the person nd help. They give up their free time to coach T-ball or softball or volunteer in other sports our kids love to play. They get involved in their community because they care about our kids’ future. Our young True Americans volunteer for our armed services. They want to protect our country and help the people suffering abuse in foreign countries. Anyone who will stand up to help make our country a better place to live without expecting to be paid to do so is a True American. Regardless of your income or nationality you can be a true American if you want to. Our nation was conceived under God with honesty and justice for all. Our politicians are trying to take God out of our country. No country can survive without God’s Blessings. See what happened to the cities in the Bible who chose to turn God away. Our trust in our government is faltering. Our big business people are shipping our jobs overseas. The government talks about getting jobs back but neither party gets it done. Maybe big business or Unions or just plain workers need to set down and see what a fair pro t is and what a fair wage is and get this country back to be where the American Dream is possible. We the people will be responsible for this country’s down fall. If we stand by and do nothing, let our elected of cials know the party thing is over. We want results. But then I’m just an old citi ed country boy. Ed Kuntz, LaBelle Letter to the Editor 2012 Minimum Wageby Matt KindermannOn January 1, 2012, Florida’s minimum wage will increase to $7.67 per hour for non-tipped positions and to $4.65 per hour for tipped position. The minimum wage is a contentious subject and is often misunderstood. It certainly is used regularly as a political tool on both sides of the fence. Some argue that paying a minimum wage arti cially raises prices on domestic production and makes American produced goods less competitive in the world market, negatively effecting economic growth. Others argue that the minimum wage protects America’s most vulnerable workers from the unfair wage practices that are prominent in countries that rely on cheap labor, have low living standards, and high rates of poverty, infant mortality, disease and illiteracy. No matter your personal opinion, Florida’s minimum wage law was established in a 2004 law approved by a majority of voters. The minimum wage rate is re-calculated each year based off the Consumer Price Index (CPI) as tracked by the U.S. Department of Labor. The CPI is commonly referred to as the average price of a “basket of goods,” but some people in the media refer to the CPI as the “Big Mac Index.” Essentially, the Labor Department takes the prices of an array of goods bought and sold in the U.S. and gures out the average price of the whole lot. They do this each month to see if in ation is on the rise by an increase in average price, or if consumer con dence is on the decline by the decrease in average price which could signal lower demand for goods. To explain more simply, we will use the Big Mac example to explain how minimum wage increases. If the average Big Mac rises in price this year, then the Labor Department gures that it would be harder for working class people to afford a Big Mac. They will then increase the minimum wage next year by only so much that an average worker can still afford a Big Mac on top of all the other expenses they normally have. The object of this policy is to keep people out of poverty, avoid the exploitation of unskilled labor and provide a base salary so people can buy more stuff to help grow the economy. The downside is that employers cannot negotiate a cheaper domestic labor source, which is a competitive disadvantage in a global economy. It is my hope that this issue was presented in an unbiased fashion, was understandable, and that someone learned something. Any employer or employee can request further assistance on minimum wage by contacting an Employment Specialist nearest you by visiting www.sw works.org and clicking on “Locations.” Employers are encouraged to download the 2012 Minimum Wage Notice, which is required by law to be posted in the workplace, at www.dol.gov/whd/regs/ compliance/posters/ sa.htm.

"We were thrilled to receive the phone call inviting us to be recipients of the funds," said Executive Director Alex DeStefano, "but w ere blown away to be asked to participate in the tournament and then be presented the check by the drivers." The tournament consisted of Golf, Deep Sea Fishing and Bass Fishing tournaments. W ith the Bass Fishing tournament departing from Clewiston, Caloosa Humane Society w as chosen as the local animal welfare organization to receive the donation.

This team, which shows some experience and youth, is setting out to have a good season, which is highlighted by good team chemistry. The schedule this year does present some challenges, but this group has worked hard to improve and is setting its sights on some highlights. Leading the way for the Cowgirls is Senior Kiah Tippett, Juniors Andrea Lutkenhaus, Paige Taylor, Mariah Molina, Caroline Cottrell, Sophomores Valerie Beltran and Jasmyn Armour. The team also is happy to have good quality 9th graders on the team, speci cally Victoria Bass, Olivia Mollina and Lorena Cruz. Managers are Yanely Ramirez and Gil Jimenez. Andrea has also been highlighted by the Fort Myers News-Press as one of the top ve players in the area, as she brings scoring, rebounding and assists to this team. She is currently averaging 18 points per game and 8.2 rebounds. Junior Paige Taylor leads the team with 8.7 boards a game. Our captain leadership of Andrea, Kiah and Mariah are showing the other girls what it takes to be a good team. Come out and follow the Cowgirls this season.

Cowgirl basketball off to great season start by Jordan OdafferCowboy Seniors David Antunez and Delendio Watson were selected to represent the Palm Beach County team in the 18th installment of the Palm Beach County Treasure Coast All Star game. They will be playing alongside seniors from Clewiston, Glades Day, Glades Central, Pahokee and Dwyer amongst others. The game is on January 14 at Leonard High School in Greenacres, Florida. David Antunez was selected as a utility player since he is able to play offense, defense and most notably special teams. He has really grown as a kicker through the last two seasons under the guidance of former Cowboy Rey Hernandez. Key stats: Antunez led the Cowboys in scoring this year and tied the mark for the longest eld goal in school history with a 52yard placement against Clewiston. Delendio Watson was selected as a defensive back. Watson completed his rst season playing football and grew exponentially as a player under defensive coordinator/defensive backs coach Kenneth Strong, also in his rst year with the Cowboys. Key stats: Watson was second on the team in tackles and blocked six kicks this season. Cowboys on Treasure Coast All Star team The LaBelle High School Boys' Basketball Team picked up a couple victories during a two-game home stand last week. Monday, the Cowboys outlasted St. John Neumann 57-38 for their rst victory of the season. Minus a few players due to the holidays, the Cowboys managed some good team defense. "Neumann is always a combative game defensively. We made some pretty good adjustments and they did not." Coach Kelley said. Senior point guard Braxton Ford was the answer for the Cowboys' scoring 38 points and handing out 5 assists and 2 blocked shots. Junior Andrew Jean-Baptist scored 13 points and got the Cowboys' rst quarter assault started with a slam dunk. The Cowboys scored 26 points in the rst quarter and never looked back. On Tuesday the Cowboys went up against the Lake Placid Dragons with a 6525 decision. LaBelle's win was the rst over the Dragons in three years. Lake Placid is rebuilding after losing its whole starting ve from last year. LaBelle played four Seniors, ve Juniors and one Sophomore. Braxton Ford led all scorers with 18 points and Devante Ray grabbed 8 points and 10 rebounds. The Cowboys would like to invite everyone to come out when Bishop Verot comes to town Thursday @7:30 PM and then again on Friday when two of the leading scores in Southwest Florida will face of f in SW FLorida Christians' Colten Catto and our own Braxton Ford.

I’m still stuffed. Next time y ou need to drill a hole in metal put a small piece of masking tape on the spot and mark where you need to drill. My drill bit always slips before I get the hole started. To loosen a rusty screw, put either v inegar or hydrogen peroxide on it and leave for awhile. Sometimes stored sweaters get a stored smell. Put them in the dryer on uff or air, no heat, with several dryer sheets. Putting nail polish on a run in your panty hose is so not cool! The latest trick is to rub the run with a glue stick. Granddaughter Jessi’s baby is stalling. I nally gured it out. They say a baby in the womb can hear w hat’s going on outside. He has heard family and friends talking and declared “I’m not going out there! Those people are to weird!” W itches Brew
