Thursday, October 10, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No. 41 by Melissa BeltzThe Clewiston News “Mark, is this going to throw a wrench -” began Chairman Karson Turner at the Board of County Commissioners’ (BOCC) regular meeting on Oct. 8, regarding budget concerns for the East County Recreation agreement. Commissioners, under the guidance of County Attorney Mark Lapp, were hashing out a revised agreement with the city of Clewiston on East Hendry County Recreation. The BOCC, now one member short after former Commissioner Al Perry resigned on Sept. 24, discussed how exactly to vote on newly formed revisions to the interlocal agreement. Attorney Lapp explained that budgetary changes may need to be discussed, because the effective date of Oct. 1 was no longer feasible after East County Rec’s Advisory Board made changes to the agreement on Sept. 24. According to Attorney Lapp, the effective date would now be Nov. 1, meaning the budget would be operating under an 11-month year, as opposed to a normal 12-month year. Commissioner Janet Taylor made the motion to reduce the county’s allocated budget of $125,000 by one-twelfth, which expenses would be incurred by the city of Clewiston. Chairman Turner stepped in, suggesting that this sort of budgetary nit-picking could start the barely-offEast Rec budget tweaked On Tuesday, October 1, the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle held an Installation Banquet to install new of cers and board members for the coming year.

Military Ball comingthe-ground agreement off on the wrong foot w ith the city. Attorney Lapp offered a suggestion to reduce the budget only by the actual amount of money the county would spend on East County Rec services for the month of October -for example, the amount it would cost to employ someone to manage the gym in Harlem -instead of reducing the budget by a set percentage. Chairman Turner called this exercise in economy a “great practice,” because it will help ensure the county knows exactly what it is spending in East County Rec services. Commissioners voted 4-0 in favor of Commissioner Taylor’s revised motion to reduce the East County Rec budget for the year.. CountyContinued From Page 1

Isn’t it funny how we can recognized the voice of someone, though we have never met that individual face to face? For example, I never met Elvis Presley, nor have I ever been an fan of “the King” but I sure know his voice when I hear it on the radio. The same is true for Lucille Ball, Ed Sullivan, or James Taylor. I recognize the tambour of those voices for one reason I have listened to them in the past. I remember once visiting a home of a family who attended my church. As the adults were talking we could hear the sounds of children playing in and around the pool at the community center where the family lived among several other condo buildings. Being kids, they were screaming, playing, and splashing in the pool. There was music playing, the lifeguard whistles were blowing and all seemed normal for the setting we were in. Just then, in the midst of the conversation, the wife and mother of the children abruptly “shooshed” everyone. Her husband, with a stunned look on his faced, turned and said, “What are you doing?” She “shooshed” him and asked, “Did you hear that?” “Hear what?” he said. “Listen!”, she insisted, while making hand signals that demanded everyone in the room to get quite. A moment or two later, she relaxed with a look on her face that gave an “all clear” signal. Amazingly, over all of the noise, that young mom had heard their youngest daughter screaming. As she listened to it, she then said, “OK, everything’s alright. That’s a happy scream.” If you are a parent, you have had that experience, haven’t you? Over all of the other voices, music, whistles, horns, or whatever, you not only recognized your child’s voice but you are able to identify what type of scream it was. Why? How? Because every day you talk with them and in the process you have learned the sound of their voices. What is true with that mom is also true with the Master. It takes time to understand the Lord’s voice. Every day communication and spending time saying to God, “speak to me,” enables us to discern His ways. This is what Jesus was referring to when He said in John 10:27, “My sheep hear M y voice, and I know them, and they follo w Me.” In Psalms 28:6, David wrote of the Lord, “Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplications! Later, in Psalms 31:22, he said, “For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the voice o f my supplications when I cried out to You.” It is good to trust the Lord. He knows your struggles, your disappointments, your heartache, and frustrations. He also knows your voice! Call on Him. He will hear you.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Why it’s so important spending time in prayer. The only way you will be able to hear the voice of God is if you spend time together.

It is also h oped that their stories will serve as beac ons for those still plotting their course in l ife, especially the young people.by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Never quit. That’s the advice from Jesse Cuello, a LaBelle man who has made his own way in the world, and done a pretty fair job of it. He is now retired but still keeps his skills sharp. There were times in Jesse’s life when he thought he might not make it. His job slipped away, but he couldn’t bring himself to accept unemployment. “You’ve got to hustle,” he says, “You’ve got to work at it.” You just put your mind to it and do what y ou have to in order to survive. “Don’t get discouraged,” he counsels, “enjoy staying active and involved.” The will to survive through hard work and to survive according to your own code of ethics goes back a long way in Jesse’s family. The name Cuello actually came from the Portuguese “Cuelho” which was changed to better relate to the Spanish speaking population of Mexico, where the family rst settled. Jesse’s family history in this country began with some very disturbing events: In the early 1900s in Mexico his grandfather had a thriving maguey cactus business (the maguey cactus is used to make tequila) but he was robbed by a so called “general” of the Mexican Revolution of all his men, equipment and animals. At about the same time, his son (Jesse’s uncle Rafael) ran against the party in power that sanctioned the robbery and won the ofce of “mayor” of their small town. These bandits, on election night, accosted J esse’s uncle, tied him up and dragged him behind a horse around the village square till his body disintegrated. That’s when Jesse’s father, Anastacio, decided he had to run for it, but he was caught at the border trying to cross the Rio Grande at Del Rio, Texas. He was jailed in Acuna, Mexico, on the Mexican side of the border and would most likely have been hanged. However, times were crazy along the border and it wasn’t unusual for exiled Mexican citizens in the US to cross the river and liberate such “criminals” from the Mexican jails. That’s exactly what happened to Jesse’s dad. (Years later the raiding party leader became J esse’s grandfather, Pedro Romo) It was a horrendous initiation into a new life, but one that Anastacio and his family were forever grateful for. He adopted his new country, took it to his heart and made sure his children grew up to appreciate all that it offered. He and Jesse’s mother both became US citizens in the ‘40s. Jesse’s dad started working in the US as a dishwasher at a hotel. His industriousness and honesty attracted the attention of the hotel owner’s grandson, who managed a clothing business. His new employer took Anastacio under his win and he was soon working in the men’s department, selling better men’s wear. Over the years he developed the work habit that would allow him to raise his family proudly and honesty and inspire his son. Anastacio made his way in the world with only a little basic education, but he loved to read all in Spanish. Still he learned English, a point of pride with him. It was important that he and his family truly become American, that they live up to the responsibilities as well as take advantage of the opportunities their new land provided. Although making just $50 per week Anastacio managed to buy a house for his wife and four children. Jesse recalls the family had no radio or indoor plumbing, but his parents “knew how to make things work, they found a way.” His mother’s intuition and frugality stretched every dollar to amazing lengths. Not only did they buy a house directly across from the church, they even helped put their eldest daughter, Eva, through Dominican College, and become a registered nurse. He remembers his dad as being direct, strong and trying to teach Jesse “what we’re here for” that is, how a person should conduct himself. For Anastacio, it was always all about God and country. Anastacio and Gabriela (who died in 2010 at the age of 106 raised their family through their own hard work and frugality. Jesse remembers his mother using her God given talent to make all manner of useful household items with old crates and other cast off items. Anastacio even became a Boy Scout Master of Troop 65 into the early ‘40s. Jesse was in born Del Rio, Texas, two miles from the Mexican border and attended a junior seminary for his high school years. Ill prepared for the academic rigors there, he still managed to learn how to study and when he left he attended the University of Texas for a year, to study petroleum engineering. He had to drop out when he ran out of money and worked in a department store to save up, but Uncle Sam called his name and he was drafted into the Army. Although he became an expert ri eman, he was sent to Fort Sam Houston to serve in the medical corps. His rst assignment was to Fort Sheridan, outside of Chicago. That’s where he became seriously interested in a passion that still burns drawing just doodling on a napkin at a pizza parlor. One day, his drawings caught the attention of a waitress who set him up with a gig there. Jesse would draw things for the patrons which attracted customers. Jesse got free pizza and beer and kept the money he made from his drawings. It was a great chance to perfect his drawing and make a little money, but he was soon stationed in Hawaii okay, he really asked to be transferred to Hawaii because of a girl he met who was teaching school there, but that’s a dead end. He was eventually discharged in 1957. After the Army he want back to Houston, to his old job in retail. Over the years, he moved on to the life insurance business, where he worked for 19 years, then got into restaurant supply. He started in sales rst, but his artistic talent, coupled with the mechanical drawing classes he took at college, soon opened up new possibilities for him. His boss noticed his ability to design kitchens and gave him an opportunity in layout and design. In 1989, the recession forced Jesse out of Houston and to Miami which he did not like at all so when he heard about a place called Fort Myers, he had to check it out. Liking what he saw, he immediately decided to move there, still working in the restaurant supply business. However, the recession wasn’t done with Jesse and several of his Fort Myers employers went under. That’s when he took to selling produce as a means of survival. Jesse just couldn’t bring himself to accept unemployment. He was bright, able-bodied and his parents had taught him to make his own way a lesson he’s afraid has been lost on many today. He discovered what would be his new home, LaBelle, through the restaurant business and became a self-employed sales contractor in the restaurant supply business. Jesse sees a common mistake in a lot of young people starting out. “When you start out ‘knowing it all’ you’re doomed to fail,” he said. “I’m grateful to have had strong parents that taught me right from wrong” a major bene t that he fears many youngsters do not enjoy today. Over the years, He has learned lessons he hopes are not lost on young people today. In addition to being a part of this area’s thriving business community, he has raised ve daughters (all of whom have done well), he has been active in his church and in community service through the Red Cross Disaster Action Team and Republican Party. No matter what your background, he said, “We can all do right.” Being a success doesn’t just mean making money. It means being happy, and ful lling all your talents. Besides drawing and painting, he also loves singing (a talent he uses to enhance his life and at the Firehouse Community Theatre) and working outdoors. Thoroughly American, Jesse has not forgotten his roots. Like many American families, they came to this country in dif cult circumstances, worked hard, raised their children to be good, honest people who are proud to use their talents not only to support themselves and their families, but to underpin their communities. Jesse still looks to his family for his inspiration. Today, Jesse carries a copy of the Constitution in his pocket, so he call always remember the basics of what this countr y means. He said he believes in this country, but every generation must earn their place themselves.

High water levels in the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor, Holey Land and Rotenberger wildlife management areas (WMAs) continue to stress area wildlife as they seek refuge on tree islands and levees. The long duration of this high-water event adds further stress, resulting in a prolonged recovery period for the impacted animals. For this reason, both the general gunw alk and general gun-vehicle seasons are canceled for this year. The archery and muzzleloading gun seasons have already been canceled as a result of this continued highw ater event. An earlier executive order, issued because of the high water, remains in effect. This order prohibits vehicle, airboat, all-terrain v ehicle and other public access to the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor, Holey Land and Rotenberger WMAs. These three areas are in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Access to Conservation Area 2A from the L-35B levee north to the east-west airboat trail is still permitted.

The team’s record is 4 and 6 with two more matches remaining. They have been working hard on their game and recently competed in the Crutch eld Tournament in Sebring. There were over 40 teams at the tournament and it is one of the few where they play 18 holes which mirrors district. This gives the boys a taste of what it will be like on October 14 at Port Charlotte when they compete in the district tournament. They have also been working to hold on to the Hendry/Glades Title they have for the past two years. Senior and Captain Mark Sloan will lead the team with Chandler McCormick, Austin Holt, Baylen McCormick, Matthew Reyna, Julian Jaramillo and Sergio Flores completing the roster. The team would like to thank the Veranda and Paul Martin for allowing them to play there and have a special time playing golf. They also want to thank their families, teachers and administration for allowing them to compete in these tournaments because without their support none of this would be possible. A special Thank you to the Sloans and McCormicks for driving the team to the matches. They also want to express their appreciation to The Glades Golf Course for allowing them to practice and have their matches at the facility, the rec board and Pastor Howard for establishing a driving range to also practice on. As you can see it takes a community to have a golf team and they want to make sure you know they appreciate the donations that keep this team going.
