Crime Scene Supervisor Donna Mansell handles latent prints scene investigation. She currently has an intern from Florida Gulf Coast University.

Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantDispatcher Sherry Hand was on duty during the recent open house for the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce's new facility in Port LaBelle. She and her fellow dispatchers have implemented the new 800 MegaHZ radio system. Colleague Maranda Steed said she enjoys the job because she likes to work under pressure and help people. New facility extends law enforcement presence by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle On January 23 the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce opened the doors of its new Port LaBelle facility to the public. The facility, the old CHL real estate headquarters, w as purchased by the Port LaBelle Community Development District (PLBCDD) with monies from an escrow account Port LaBelle residents paid into from 1983-89. The facility came available w hen the real estate market declined and cost just $575,000. Former County Administrator Lester Baird, now director of PLBCDD, was on hand to celebrate the achievement he was such a big part of. Commissioner Janet Taylor said the facility is an asset to community the county has looked forward to for years. Commissioner Tris Chapman celebrated the opening as a collaboration between the county, PLBCDD and sheriff’s of ce. He also commented that Commissioner Darrell Harris, also present, was a great supporter of the SO and emergency services. Dispatch moved in to its new space with card tables before receiving of ce equipment donated by the Lee County Sheriff’s Of ce. Communications Supervisor Margie Phipps started at HCSO in 2000 as a dispatcher. She said there are a total of 12 dispatch positions. Young, but with varied experience, Kevin Drummond has announced his campaign to run for Hendry County Supervisor of Elections as a Republican. Born and raised in LaBelle and a graduate of LaBelle High School, Mr. Drummond studied criminal justice at Florida A&M (FAMU) and worked for the Capitol Police in Tallahassee when Jeb Bush was governor. The Capitol Police is a division of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Kevin also has a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Florida Gulf Coast (FGCU). He has worked in motor carrier compliance with Florida Department of Transportation and currently is assigned to compliance investigations with the Florida Highway Patrol. He is assigned to the Southern Region and is based in Palm Beach County, overseeing fatal crash investigation, and general investigations from Orlando to Key West. He has done numerous outreach events and served as public information of cer as well as serving as an instructor at Palm Beach Academy at Palm Beach State College. After laying such a foundation he’s ready to come home. “I grew up in Hendry County and enjoy it here,” he said. He also feels the need to use his experience for the community’s good.

After all, you can’t complain if you don’t vote, he explained. Our freedoms are sacred and “Voting is where it starts,” he believes. As Supervisor of Elections, he would make voter education and rights a priority, he noted. Mr. Drummond feels the elections of ce is similar to law enforcement because it is covered mostly by state statutes. “There are very few gray areas in the Supervisor of Elections position,” he commented, “State laws dictate what has to be done. Although he said he feels the Supervisor of Elections Of ce has been run well, with the retirement of longtime Supervisor of Elections Lucretia Strickland, he feels it needs a “fresh look, a new coat of paint.” He said he wants to make voting hassle free “Our youth need to know how important it is to vote,” he said, adding he fears many have forgotten. He said he’s strong on voter education and on making sure voters understand their rights. He said he will make a special effort to connect with Spanish voters and unregistered voters. He will be resigning from FHP later in the year to take up full time campaigning for ofce. Meanwhile he is speaking to as many people as he can one on one and using his Web site and Facebook to get his message across. When not working, he said he enjoys boating, cycling, tennis and motorcycling. If elected, Mr. Drummond said that, at the end of four years, Hendry County residents should expect improved voter education and an increase in voter registration. For Kevin Drummond, that is huge. It used to be that people were proud to vote. He wants to rekindle that spirit. With his background in law enforcement, he also wants to uphold the integrity and fairness of the election system and for the people of Hendry County to let their voice be heard through voting.

If the power is down longer than 35-40 minutes, a propane generator will take over so work can continue. All systems are redundant, according to IT Director Ryan Purdy, who has been at the SO one year. He previously was lead engineer for infrastructure with Chico’s. Criminal Investigations secretary Brenda W hite said the new facility, which includes CID, Road Patrol and dispatch, improves communication between CID and Road Patrol. Robin McLain 911 Coordinator got the grant to the move radios from the downtown of ce and to update the system to the mandated 800 Megahertz.

Job Site Jibeby Matt KindermannHave you ever applied for a job online only to have some college you have never heard of start calling you offering to nance some education? If so, you are a victim of what I call the "Job Site Jibe." Most commercial job search Web sites make their money by not only selling space on their Web site to employers posting help wanted ads, but also to advertisement companies. Job seekers are a prime audience which marketers target for higher education and other vocational or training services. Commercial job search Web sites popular with jobseekers can command a larger price for advertisement space. Some commercial job sites capitalize on advertising sales by requiring you to register an account with them before applying for a job. Registering allows the Web site to use your personal information, like e-mail address, phone number, gender and birthday, to sell to the advertisers who then call you repeatedly and ood your e-mail inbox full of garbage. By clicking the mandatory box that reads "I agree with the terms of service" before sending an application, you may be agreeing to release your information to advertisers. However, do not be scared of using the internet to apply for jobs as there are as many reputable Web sites as there are unscrupulous. For instance, registering on private government Web sites such as www. usajobs.gov and www.employ orida.com are safe because your information is not sold to advertisers and you will not receive solicitations. Also, most private companies that have a "Careers" or "Employment" link on their homepage are safe to register on because they are unlikely to sell your information to competitors and are bound to stricter human resources rules than commercial sites. I encourage you to use the internet to conduct your search for jobs, but do it smartly. Use the government Web sites and private job boards. If you are on a site and you see an advertisement for a college or merchandise, be wary of where you click. Sometimes you will click on "Apply" and the next screen will look like an application but in fact be a "Special Offer" to request information on a school. Find the small, ne print button labeled "Skip This Offer," or something similar, to get to the actual application. When in doubt, always try to nd the job you are looking at on the parent company's own Web site under their Careers or Employment link. Some companies will only use commercial job search sites to post their jobs and that's alright as long you are aware of the Job Site Jibe. by Pat Dobbins "A Healthy Smile is Always in Style!" By Pat Dobbins February is National Children's Dental Health Month, and the Glades & Hendry County Health Departments would like to give you some tips to help give your child a healthy smile which can last a lifetime. The keys to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums include a balanced diet, limited snacks, daily brushing and ossing, and regular dental checkups. "A Healthy Smile Is Always in Style!" is the theme for this month's nationwide celebration. Dental services are available at the Glades County Health Department. Dr. Colombo and his staff would be happy to take care of all of your dental needs! Please call 863-946-0707 to make an appointment for you or your children. In honor of National Children's Dental Health Month, please take a look at these helpful dental health tips: Nutrition and Tooth Development For strong, decay-resistant teeth, children need protein, vitamins and minerals (especially calcium, phosphorus and proper levels of uoride). Nutrition and Tooth Decay Foods or liquids containing sugars and starches encourage the production of plaque, which produces acids that attack tooth enamel. If you regularly have sugary or starchy foods or liquids, the result may be tooth decay and possibly tooth loss. Nutrition Habits and Healthy Teeth Chec k food labels for sugar content. Eat foods that contain sugars with your meals, and avoid between-meal snacks. Try to avoid sugarcontaining cough drops, hard candy and breath-mints that stay in the mouth a long time and increase the likelihood of decay. Research indicates that certain foods such as cheese, peanuts, or sugar-free gum ma y be "tooth friendly." Eating these foods with or after foods that contain carbohydrates may help counter the effects of the acids. Sip All Day, Get Decay Be sure to avoid sipping soda or sugary drinks all day. It's not only the sugar; it's the acid that makes sod a and juice sipping double trouble! Babies and Bottles Baby teeth are very important for chewing, speaking and appearance. One serious form of children's tooth decay is baby bottle tooth decay. This condition is caused by frequent and prolonged exposure of an infant's teeth to liquids containing sugar, such as milk (including breast milk), formula, fruit juice and other sweetened drinks. If you must give your baby a bottle as a comforter at naptime or bedtime, make sure it contains only water. Sealing out Decay As your child's permanent teeth arrive, talk to your dentist about having dental sealants applied to protect teeth from decay. A dental sealant is a clear material applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where decay most often occurs. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting teeth from bacteria and the acid that attacks enamel. Accidents Can Happen! Ask your dentist for advice on the proper mouth-guard for your child, whether he or she is playing a contact sport like football or just having fun skating or riding a bike. Active children require proper mouth protection to prevent injuries to the face, tongue and lips. These injuries may include broken or knocked out teeth and even jaw fractures. If an accident does happen, be sure to call your dentist as soon as possible. Your mouth is the gateway to the body, so the state of your teeth and gums affects your overall health. By following these steps to a better smile, you'll be taking important strides for the rest of your body, too!

Let me repeat that, two Hendry County teams! Not Bishop Verot or even Sarasota Cardinal Mooney, who had each won all previous Championships. This was Clewiston and LaBelle’s year, each having been dispatched the previous two. The game had all the feeling of a heavy weight title ght. The bleachers were packed by fans of both teams as the incounty rivals battled for the ultimate prize, Clewiston (14-4-2) in only its fth year of soccer and LaBelle (14-2-2) in its rst District Championship game. Both teams battled ercely through the rst 40 minutes only to end tied 1-1. LaBelle would score rst in the second half but, Clewiston would soon answer with a goal of its own to tie the game at 2-2. Both teams traded shots and squandered opportunities in the remaining minutes to end regulation tied 2-2. Since this was the play-offs, a clear winner had to be crowned. On to the rst ten minute “Sudden Death Overtime” period, in which both teams were nervous and cautious not to make that one big mistake that would give the other team the victory. After another period without a result, both players and fans were exhausted and left wondering if this game would ever end. The second ten minute “Sudden Death Overtime” period would yield the same results, with the game still tied 2-2. An end was in sight as both teams would now select ve players each to shoot penalty kicks versus the opponents goalie. All ve players never got a chance to shoot as LaBelle blinked rst missing its rst and fourth shot, while Clewiston did not falter. The Tigers would win the game 3-2. Although Clewiston won the game to gain their rst Boys Soccer District Championship, a proud LaBelle Cowboy team marched off the eld holding their runnerup trophy in the air for all to see. There were no losers Friday night, only winners. Both fans and players witnessed something very special, a game of games that represented the best of both schools and a championship for Hendry County.

A place where there’s something for all your friends and family, from the young ones to the older ones? That’s what the folks at Top Draw want too. Top Draw may be new in town, but it’s backed up by many years of experience in serving great food and exciting atmosphere. Top Draw manages to offer family-oriented fun with a sports bar feel. And it’s got class. If you’re into Sinatra and the Rat Pack, old Hollywood (think legends like Red Buttons, Bob Hope, Marilyn Monroe), Top Draw is the place for you. If a sports bar is your “thing” with tons of big screen TVs (a total of 20 TVs: ten 51” and ten 20”) and great sports memorabilia, Top Draw is the place for you. If you just love a nice place where you can take your family to enjoy good food at a good price, Top Draw is the place for you. Owner Nancy Kelly knows exactly how to make your outing memorable, whether is a nice lunch with family or a big evening out w ith friends. Nancy is a trouper from way back. As the owner of the world famous Top Draw club of the ‘70s in Miami Beach (formerly Dino’s owned by Dean Martin’s son), she counted numerous Hollywood legends and sports stars as her personal friends and spent many great hours in her club. The club was a top notch hot spot during the Disco craze. Her late husband “Dougie” also had a background in the restaurant/entertainment business. He was maitre ‘d at the famous Copa Cabana in New York and at Miami’s Fountainbleu in their glory days. LaBelle’s Top Draw can seat 750. You can also enjoy your time there al fresco, on the patio where the party continues. Nancy said she’s proud of her employees at Top Draw saying, “They’re a good bunch of people, like a family.” She and manager Matt Moots have very carefully chosen and trained their employees to ensure a great experience for their customers. From Miami Beach, Nancy moved to Naples where she began a ranch with exotic animals. At one point she hoped to have a petting zoo for kids, but health issues took precedence. She moved to Alva where she found a whole new area open to her special brand of entertainment. She saw LaBelle as an obvious location to use her talents to create a great eating and entertainment destination for locals and visitors. Manager Matt Moots has 20 years experience in managing golf courses, restaurants and night clubs and spends a lot of time traveling to keep up with his numerous business commitments. In fact, at age 24, Matt had his own successful night club. Nancy has cast her fortunes here with a signi cant investment in Hendry County. She said she is committed to serving good food at a good price and to doing her part for economic development. She is looking forward to making Top Draw the place to eat and have fun in LaBelle and the surrounding area. At Top Draw you will nd a choice, family oriented dinner menu with price sensitive daily specials. The restaurant is proud of its steak, sh, chicken, Philly cheese steak and very popular wings. Nancy and Matt have worked to bring the best to LaBelle. For instance, Chet Rogus is an FGCU graduate and chef from the ESPN Las Vegas franchise. Nancy herself looks forward to enjoying some great fun with the customers. Watch for some great entertainment that caters to all kinds of people, including bands for different generations. Remember, Top Draw specializes in accommodating parties of all sizes. Top Draw is working hard to build a reputation for good food and quality service. It’s open Sunday-Wednesday11 a.m.-midnight; and Thursday-Saturday 11-2 a.m. The restaurant is located at 870 SR 80W.

Saturday, January 14 may have been rather chilly, but that didn’t keep families from enjoying the annual Kiwanis Kid’s Day! The bounce houses kept kids active, the food kept everyone’s hunger satis ed, Mary the Clown greeted kids with balloons and candy and the Kiwanis Thrift Store provided enough stuffed animals so that every child had a chance to take one home! There seemed to be hundreds of kids and families spread throughout the park enjoying the free activities. This year, there was a hula hoop contest, a scavenger hunt and a relay race. To the delight of the children, Smokey the Bear, McGruff the Crime Dog and the Crash Dummies made an appearance in the park! One of the popular attractions for parents was the Masonic Lodge #379 Free Child ID Program. The Florida Masonic “Child ID Program” provides free identication kits for children. The kit included a digital photo of the child, digital nger prints and a full description of the child which is all placed on a CD for easy access. A huge thank you to the Masonic Lodge #379 for bringing this free program to our community! Each year the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle sponsors a funlled day for children and their families, but the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle really appreciates the support of the many local businesses, community agencies, partners and volunteers that came out to help make the event such a success. Raf e tickets were sold for only 50-cents a ticket for the chance to win a boy’s or girl’s bicycle (donated by Ace Hardware), a tricycle (donated by Cecil Akin of Akin Davis Funeral Home) and a movie night gift basket donated by RCMA. There are just too many people to thank individually, but the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle would like to extend a huge thank-you to everyone that participated and helped to support this event. A very special thank you goes out to the Key Club members! These wonderful young men and women (our future Kiwanians and leaders) worked really hard from beginning to end! Be on the lookout for another funlled day from the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle toward the end of the year. Please remember that Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis Kids Day: Cold, but fun!
