by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Seven former directors of the bank are facing action in US Middle Florida District Court in connection with their duties at Florida Community Bank (FCB) before it went into receivership in 2010. The plaintiff in the action is the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. According to Federal Court documents, the 2010 closing of FCB resulted in a $349.1 million loss to the Deposit Insurance Fund. FDIC is seeking $62 million in damages, mainly on losses from six acquisition and development loans (ADC), one commercial real estate loan (CRE) and one personal loan. Court documents state that CRE loans are “inherently risky” as they are “made to developers, builders and speculators, who may have several concurrent projects making their incomes subject to uctuations in real estate values.” ADC loans are a type of CRE loan in which loan “proceeds are used to acquire commercial real property and/or develop it . .” The charges are leveled at former President, CEO and former director of the bank, Stephen Price, as well as “outside” directors Beauford Davidson, Patrick Langford, Jon R. Olliff, DDS, James O’Quinn, Bernard Rasmussen and Daniel Rosbough. The court charges that FCB’s collapse was caused by “grossly negligent loan underwriting and loan administration, resulting in excessive and dangerous concentrations” of six acquisition and development loans as well as a commercial real estate loan.

Complaint led against former bank directors Wilcoxson running for Clerk Tom Corbitt Larry Wilcoxson, 33, is referred to by many as a future and rising star in the Republican Party. His brillance and tenacity have been compared to our Floridian Statesmen Marco Rubio and Allen West. He has a keen ability to identify problems and is not hesitant in seeking appropriate solutions. He was raised in a fatherless family by a single mother of four who instilled Christ and a strong work ethic in him at an early age. He worked the watermelon elds and packing houses during summer and school recess to help pay the bills and ease the work load for his mother. Larry did this while excelling in the classroom and in football and basketball. Prior to leaving for college Larry was awarded the Presidential Pin by former President Bill Clinton. His work ethic and education helped con rm in him values and responsibilities and that the concept of a “free lunch” is a myth. Someone always pays it is just a question of who, when, where and how much! Upon completion of high school at 17, Larry left for college. He turned down several scholarships to attend Florida State. As an 18-year-old young man, Larry had to make a tough decision as to chase a dream or raise his son. Larry chose the latter. He enrolled at the community college, worked numerLarry Wilcoxson See Directors — Page 2 See Clerk — Page 2 My name is Tom Corbitt. I’m a Republican running for Hendry County Tax Collector.

As a Board, their failure to act prudently and independently resulted in their approval of high-risk loans based on grossly de cient underwriting and questionable appraisal.” In its complaint, the FDIC refers to an October 2008 “Order to Cease and Desist the ongoing unsafe and unsound banking practices” and alleges that the defendants authorized seven major loans resulting in at least $56.7 million in losses to the bank and that Mr. Price authorized a personal loan resulting in a nearly $6 million loss. That loan was approved solely by Mr. Price to Jerry Williams, Jr., in 2007 for $5,925,000. According to the complaint, the loan exceeded Mr. Price’s authority as president, which was limited to $5 million. The defendants are not to comment on the case, however, counsel to the former directors, Mary C. Gill of Alston & Bird LLP, said, “These gentlemen were proud to serve as directors of Florida Community Bank, which was a part of this community for many years. They fully satis ed their responsibilities to the bank and, at all times, acted in the best interest of the bank. The complaint led by the FDIC is without merit and we will ask the court to dismiss it.” married Antoinette Schroeter of Kiel, Germany. Sadly, Antoinette passed away shortly before I retired. We have two children Michele Surdam and Thomas II. Michele lives w ith her husband Jim and my four grandsons in Virginia. Thomas is a civilian working for the US Army in Europe and he and his w ife Angela make their home in Belgium. In J une 2005 I returned to my Florida roots and settled in LaBelle where I met Linda Clark, herself a widow, and chased her until she caught me. We were married in 2011 and live in North LaBelle. During my early career as an enlisted man, I was an aircraft mechanic and ight engineer with assignments in Germany, Greece and Thailand. Following my tour in South East Asia I was accepted into the USAF Airmen’s Education and Commissioning Program and graduated from FSU in August 1973. I received my commission as a 2LT in December 1973. Over the course of the next 30 years, I w orked in numerous organizations with w ide-ranging and diverse missions, from small-specialized units to large complex units as well as large national and international headquarters. I have been responsible for developing, implementing and overseeing numerous multi-million dollar budgets and the expansion and improvement of major military communities. I served three tours as a Commander, the last as a Support Group Commander responsible for over 5,000 military personnel and their families and a $175 Million dollar annual budget. I served two tours in the Pentagon, one on the USAF Headquarters staff working defense initiatives with our NATO allies, the other on the Joint Staff w orking Middle East issues and counter drug initiatives in the Caribbean and Central and South America. I served two tours at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium as the senior U.S. National Expert on Air Defense and Airspace Control and Management and a third tour in Brussels, as the Program Manager for a Multi-National project to de ne an airborne ground surveillance system for NATO. Over my entire USAF career, (13 years as an enlisted man and 30 years as an ofcer), one thing I have found, regardless of the size or complexity of the organization, is that there is always room to improve how we do business. As you peel back the layers of state or local statutes, regulations, directives and procedures, be it in large complex military organizations or the local county Tax Collector’s of ce, you will nd requirements and procedural steps that add no value to achieving the end objective. Simply put they are there because they are there or because of the old, “That’s the way we’ve always done it.” I believe a new set of eyes can see things often times missed by those who have been in of ce for a long period of time. As your tax collector, I want to use my leadership, management skills and experience to “peel back” the layers and root out and eliminate those nonvalue added steps. I know from experience there are always ways to streamline operations and save money while maintaining the highest level of customer service. Through my service, I want to “Make it better Make it Happen – Make it Last” for our community. I believe in and live by the core values of Personal Integrity, Service Before Self and Excellence in All That We Do. Since returning home to Florida I have become actively involved in the community. I’m the Vice Chairman of the Local Planning Agency. I attend Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church. I’m a member of the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce and a founding member/ senior partner in Corbitt-Clark Consulting, LLC. I am a founding member and past president of the South Central Florida Car Club as well as a life time member of the Air Force Association and a member of American Legion Post 01, Paris France. I actively support local businesses and organizations such as the Hendry County Hospital, the American Legion Post 130’s LaBelle Veterans Park, United Way, Salvation Army and the Quarterback Club. Together we can “Make It Better – Make It Happen –Make it Last” for Hendry County. Thank you, Tom Corbitt. ous jobs and raised his son. His determination and hard work was noticed by classmate Edgerrin James, who was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. Larry was hired by Mr. James to function as his his P.A. during his tenure with the Colts. Larry managed numerous multi-million dollar accounts, real estate, worked with city & state of cials, negotiated contracts and worked with other non-pro t organizations throughout the country. While working for Mr. James, Larry completed his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Education & Criminology in the top 5 percent of his class earning Magna Cum Laude status. Larry did not stop there as he continued to further his education by completing his Master’s of Science degree in Divinity & Family Counseling. While in Indiana, Larry’s faith in Christ was tested when he was falsely arrested. He was exonerated and charges were dropped. His perseverance and patient demeanor through his turmoil gained the apologies, blessings and acknowledgements of Republican Governor Mitch Daniels and Democratic Congressman Andre Carson who also attended his college graduation. Larry pursued a law degree in Civil Liberties. Returning back home to Immokalee, Larry entered the political arena working on Rick Scott’s Gubernatorial Campaign. He also ran against a strong incumbent for the State House of Representatives in 2010. Although not successful in his bid, he remained active and deeply involved in local, state and federal politics. Larry’s experience includes: Campaign Director Herman Cain Presidential campaign Served on Collier County Affordable Housing Board Collier County Sheriff Minorit y Task Force Founder of Sgt. Linda Pierre Foundation and Scholarship (to honor vets) One of the Founders of the Golden Gate Estates Youth Non-Violent Movement One of the Founders of the Collier County Young Republican Club Larry sums up his run for the Hendr y County Clerk of Courts like this: “We need a real taxpayer watch dog.

According to sheriff's reports, while at Azteca V the victim offered Silvestre Trejo Perez $30 to give her a ride to a friend's home. He accepted and drove her west on Cowboy Way to 920 Cowboy Way behind a medical plaza where he allegedly tried to make her take her clothes off. She refused and she said he then drove east on Cowboy Way. He refused to let her out of the truck and she said she opened the passenger door, but he did not slow down. Instead he continued to drive to Helms Road where she said he threatened her by saying she'd "regret this." He drove down green belts till they got between Forrey and Collingswood where she said she managed to jump out and call 911. The report states that he chased her and tackled her on the pavement where he pulled her hair, kicked her and slammed her head into the pavement. When she screamed and said the cops were coming, he drove awa y in a dark colored four-door truck. The truck was found at Harvard S. and Birchwood Circle. The victim identi ed Perez as her attacker. A .22 Marlin ri e was found under the truck's back seat. Perez was arrested and charged with simple assault with intent/threat to do violence, battery causing bodily harm and kidnappingfalse imprisonment of an adult. Man charged with kidnapping J. Guadalupe Cuellar-Aranda of LaBelle was released from Lee Memorial Hospital on April 13, the day following his crash on Joel Blvd. near Tuckahoe Road in LeHigh Acres. Since the crash, Mr. Cuellar-Aranda has also satisfactorily proven that he does have insurance. The family wishes to express its thanks to LaBelle residents for their concern and prayers and said they are glad to have him home. Released from hospital by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The City of LaBelle is thinking ahead, trying to make sure zoning is in order should a hotel or motel become interested in building here. At their April 12 meeting, city commissioners made plans in the form of a proposed ordinance that will designate certain areas for large facilities of that type. As the Local Planning Agency, the commissioners listened to a proposal by City Planner Shellie Johnson that would set hotel/motel standards and general locations. She explained that the intent is to allow this type of develop where it is compatible in scale and placement. She laid out ve points to govern site location and size: The project site shall be located in the Outlying Mixed Use Future Land Use category; The hotel/motel shall be part of a larger mixed-use development consisting of a minimum of eight acres; The project site shall be located within walking distance (maximum of 1/4 mile) o f typical hotel patron services such as restaurants, convenience stores and gas stations; The parcel proposed for development shall front on but shall not involve direct access to a major arterial roadway; Water and sewer availability and connection shall be required. Two areas on the northwest corner of the city meet all these criteria; two other areas, one in the northwest section and one on the south side of SR 80W meet the criteri a except for being more than 1/4 mile from patron services. The old Barron property on the east side of town is already zoned PUD and is approved for a hotel at this time, and the curve at SR 80 is also already zoned appropriately. The commissioners approved the plan as the LPA and recommended approval to the board. The issue is set for nal approval at the city's May 10 meeting. City limits hotel sites

Homeowners need helpIs there any way to bring attention to the disregard of private homeowners on the little lake that sits on Hwy 80 and Cedarwood Pkwy in LaBelle? We purchased our home last year because it sits on the little lake, we have a patch of greenbelt between our home and the lake but we take care of the mowing and upkeep because it is right at our back yard (as do the other home owners out here on the lake). The problem is (even though there are not supposed to be vehicles or atvs on the green belt, there are. We are constantly running people off from behind our home who are ying around on atvs and parking their vehicles behind our properties. We tell them this is not allowed on this side of the lake because of private property owners and the fact that they are driving vehicles and atvs on the green belt (sometimes rutting up the ground and often littering) we have picked up trash, bottles and had to put up with people coming through our yard or even being around our home. Yesterday, on Easter, I called the Hendry county sheriff of ce because there were two families (all set up with bbq grill and loads of kids making a day camp for fun on the little lake. The kids were all swimming in the lake with rafts and yelling and carrying on... The lake has signs for NO SWIMMING, NO BOATS. But this is disregarded often. Not to mention we have had big gators in the lake that have been aggressive and the gator trappers had to be called. People just do not care about home owners privacy out here or the fact that vehicles are not allowed on the green belt. We need more signs ALL around the lake (we would be more than happy to pay for signs to keep people off of (at least the homeowners side of the lake and they could sh on the public side (by the highway). We are on Grove Ct. which is the lake property homes and lots privately owned, we often sit out on our lani and have meals or coffee and often see folks throwing trash down when shing (right now there is trash (a big trash bag) by the tree across the lake from yesterdays families along with loose trash (which will blow into the lake, across to our yards and we will get to clean it up. We do not want people in our yards around our homes. We have personally had a break in just before getting moved completely in and so we are very concerned for our property. There have been people who smoke and just throw down cigarettes and with the re season, we could lose our home and our neighbors as well. We just would like to have some boundaries and signs for the private home and lot owners on Grove Ct. to keep the public and traf c from behind out properties and signs on the highway side stating perhaps nes for littering and more signs to keep vehicles off the green belt completly (except for county vehicles which mow). I am going to start taking photos of all the trash and vehicles that are often destroying the beauty that we enjoy and all should take pride in. Thank you, Deonna HamptonSuper talent, super girlsI would like to especially thank the outstanding visiting talent from the LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Pageant that added so much to our recent Harvest Festival Pageant in Immokalee. The 2012 Swamp Cabbage Princess, Abby Lynn Arnold, entertained everyone with a lively clog to "Hammertime."The reigning Miss Swamp Cabbage, Mallory Allen, performed a beautiful lyrical ballet to "I Was Here" by Kristen Chenoweth. And i f that was not enough, the 2012 Swamp Cabbage talent winner wowed the crowd with her jazz rendition on the saxophone of OMG by Usher. Besides being so talented, all of these ladies are wonderful role models and a credit to their community. I congratulate their parents for raising such ne young women and I thank LaBelle, the Swamp Cabbage Pageant, and Jerri Lynn Merritt, for sharing them with us. Joanne Loukonen Harvest Festival Pageant Directo r ImmokaleeSuperintendent questionA few weeks ago I wrote a letter to the editor concerning the election of our Superintendant of Schools. At that time I questioned the validity o f electing a person to that position as opposed to searching for and hiring the most quali ed individual. I asked for a logical answer, if there is one, to that question. I ask again for a public answer, possibly in the Caloosa Belle, from the Board of Education or someone in the school administration. My personal opinion is that the position of Superintendant of Schools is far too important to be left up to the whims of a popularity contest.

Thank you, Troop 9 Thank You Career Interests Part 2 of 3by Matt KindermannLast week we looked at creating an Interest Inventory to identify potential employment opportunities based on your interests, as well as using the career interest assessment at www.mynextmove.org. This week we will offer more tools you can use to help identify that "dream job." Remember, when taking any personality or career interest assessments; pick the answer that honestly relates to your interests or skill level. The federal Department of Labor manages a Web site at www.careerinfonet.org which is a goldmine of reliable information for job seekers and employers. Every Human Resources professional should be at least familiar with the location of this Web site. Inside the yellow colored "Career Tools" box is a link for "Skills Pro ler" where you can check the bubble "Start Your Skills Pro le" and select "Continue." The skills pro le will rst ask you to select from a list of skills that you already possess. After you have marked your skills, select continue and you will be asked to rate your pro ciency level in each skill from low to high. This might be a little subjective as the system does not provide examples to rate yourself against. For truly objective answers, ask someone who is familiar with your abilities to verify your answers. Choose to continue and the computer will provide a list of suggested career's with links to investigate more about each one. This assessment is free and will take a person with average reading and computer abilities about 15 minutes to complete, but you could potentially spend hours further investigating each suggested career. I took the assessment and the computer matched my interests with only one career; "Chief Executive." I could brag, but the ne print did state that I only had a 49 percent match with a dismal 11 of the necessary 24 traits for the position. I guess I'll stick to my day job! The strength of this assessment tool is in the comprehensive description of each career which can be ltered to provide localized information on projected growth and wage rates, as well as the level of training and experience required for each job.

Dogbrain is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. “Dogbrain” will be staged as a theatre in the round and features Nick, who gets into hot water when he invents a non-existent creature, called Dogbrain to blame for his bad behavior. When Dogbrain materializes (visible only to Nick), he wreaks havoc on his family. But, nally tired of being bad, Nick conjures up his “goody” side. The show stars LaBelle Middle School Students Emily Schwarz, Neydel Rego, Corbyn Kohutek, Estafania Hernandez, Anthon y Gooster, Hannah Andrews, Alondra Reyna, Deedra Shackford, Charlie Lynn and a special appearance by Weecho! The show could not go on without the stage help and understudies who are Briseida Aguilar, Emma Bridwell, Brittany Morrison and Kylie Soliz.

Obituaries Church Briefs CPR Tools, Inc., your local computer repair, Data Recovery and Data Security Company is pledging to donate a portion of every commercial sale during the month of May to LaBelle High School. The company, in a show of support for the school, will contribute 10 percent of all May 2012 sales to the high school. John and Sue Benkert own CPR Tools and they feel strongly about the role of schools in preparing our youth for life in the "real world." John said, "I believe that education should be our number one priority as an individual and a business, teachers should be given the tools to prepare students to lead us in the future." Sue summed it up best with her comment, "What better way to support our local community than through those who educate and prepare our children with skills they'll use the rest of their lives?" Principal Lucinda Kelly commented, "LHS is very pleased to be supported by this generous community effort from CPR Tools. Our students are a great investment and this is a wonderful way to help provide extra programs and incentives for them. This type of innovative giving is unprecedented!" This effort, which is part of CPR Tools "Cultivate, Prepare & Realize" program will occur annually and is designed to help our schools bridge the nancial gap between funding and the cost of providing a quality education for our youth. Another part of the program has CPR Tools employees volunteer their time to talk to students in the classroom about such topics as resume writing, interviewing and more. For the entire month of May when someone purchases any service or product CPR Tools will donate 10 pecent of that purchase to the high school. CPR Tools is not only the world leader in data recovery, the company will also perform data erasure services that meet all government laws and standards including HIPAA, HiTECH, GLBA and others.

The Greyhounds stirred things up in their rst at-bat with two homers. The Cowgirls answered with three runs of their own: scores by Michelle Gielow and Cory Taylor in the third inning and the winning run by Jesse Whitman, who was brought in on steals by Ashley Cruz. It was Cowgirls 3-2. The much needed afternoon rain of last Thursday reeked havoc on the LaBelle High School softball eld. With the upcoming division playoff in a few hours, coaches, players, parents and others came together and repaired the damages so the game with the Clewiston Tigers began. Ahe bottom of the third inning with LaBelle leading 1-0 with the bases loaded and one out, the game was called because of rain. At 11 a.m. on Friday, the game was resumed. LaBelle was at bat with one out and the bases loaded. Abbie O'Ferrell and Rachael Reinbott both got hits and brought in two runs to make the score 3-0. In the bottom of the 4th, Andrea Lutkenhaus scored another run when Gennifer Raulerson hit a double to bring the score to 4-0 in favor of LaBelle. Even though the Cowgirls kept hitting throughout the last three innings, they were unable to score any more runs. The pitching of Gennifer Raulerson and the Cowgirls' defense kept the Clewiston Tigers from scoring. Loaded down with chairs, umbrellas and other paraphanelia, LaBelle fans headed to Bishop Verot for the nal division game at 7 p.m., but the rain escaped this part of Fort Myers. From the start the Cowgirls' defense showed Bishop Verot that they would have to earn every run. Their rst player up to bat hit a y ball toward left eld and Rachael Reinbott ran and dove toward the ball. With her arm outstretched, she caught the ball just before both the ball and her body hit the ground. The crowd went wild because of the amazing catch. But Bishop Verot came back and hit a single and a double to the fence that brought in a run. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Bishop Verot hit a ball between left and center eld almost to the fence. Once again here comes Rachel Reinbott who stretched and made another awesome catch to help shut down Bishop Verot's inning. In the bottom of the 5th inning, Bishop Verot's rst three batters hit singles, but only one slipped through the Cowgirl defense. The fourth batter hit a double off the fence which scored another run before being put out on 3rd base. Now the score was 2-0 in Bishop Verot's favor. The top of the 6th was the Cowgirls best offensive inning. Michelle Gielow hit a stand-up double and then stole 3rd base. Cory Taylor hit another stand-up double which brought Michelle in. Andrea Lutkenhaus hit a single and brought Cory in home which tied the score 2-2. In the bottom of the 6th, Bishop Verot had 6 hits and brought in 4 runs. In the 7th, the Cowgirls were unable to overcome the odds and lost to Bishop Verot 6-2. Powerful Cowgirls bow to Vero in division play Submitted photoThe LaBelle High School Cowgirls Softball team played their hearts out this season.

Antiques, books, toys, shing gear, kitchen items, handbags, furniture evening gowns, pictures and paintings. From the sublime to the quirky, Miss Patty’s has an impressive eclectic collection that’s worth perusing. Patty has been in the consignment business for over ten years.

Her vendors include individuals of all ages and walks of life, and even businesses that are taking advantage of the opportunity to showcase their specialties another venue to reach potential customers. Winn Weathington was one of Miss Patty’s original vendors. Her little corner of the shop is crowded with an amazing variety of items. Winn said she’s found that people are v ery happy with the selection and the display at Miss Patty’s. “It’s not a yard sale,” she said, “and customers really like the variety.” V endors have a better “audience” for their w ares, she added.

Early April, a series of suspicious wild res threatened the community of Moore Haven and the Florida Forest Service needs your help in the investigation. "We urge residents and business owners in the area to be vigilant of any suspicious activities and report them to authorities," said Senior Ranger Danny Callahan. If you have any information about the cause of these res, please call 1-800-342-5869 or call your local Florida Forest Service. There is a reward up to $5,000 leading to the arrest. Tips to preventing suspicious wild re activity near your home and business: 1. Keep your porch and garage lights on at night. 2. Call 911 if you witness a developing emergency situation. 3. Make your home Firewise, call your local Florida Forest Service for more information or go to www. oridaforestservice.com. Make sure your home can survive a wild re. Remove anything that will burn from y our roof and gutters such as pine needles, leaves, small twigs and palm fronds. Be sure there is nothing ammable against the sides of your home. Use plants that are not highly ammable around your home. Keep the area within 30 feet of your home picked up, mowed, and watered within the guidelines of local water management. Rainfall wild re activity has reduced the drought Index to 514 (scale of 0-wet to 800drought). The recent cold front introduced high winds and low relative humidity, aiding the reduction of fuel moisture in the vegetation.
