Thursday, January 30, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 5 Shelters provide w armthby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Although Southwest Florida is one of the most comfortable spots in the entire country during the w inter months, even here the ravages of the cold are felt from time to time. After two years of planning, Hendry County’s new Cold Weather Emergency Shelter system has nally been established. There is one shelter located on either side of the county. In LaBelle, the shelter is at the United W ay House, 133 N. Bridge Street. Clewiston does not yet have a permanent location for its shelter, but relocates as circumstances require from the Clewiston Youth Center, 110 Osceola Avenue in Clewiston; the Health Department and the Beardsley Room. These shelters are opened w hen temperatures are expected to hit or fall below 40 degrees F; if they hit or fall below 45 degrees F and there is precipitation; or when the wind chill factor is expected to be at or below 35 degrees F. When the shelters are needed, doors open at 6 p.m. and remain open until 7 a.m. the following day. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Port LaBelle Inn will not house a drug rehab program. An overwhelming negative reaction by residents resulted in unanimous denial by the county commissioners of the special exception request by St. Matthews House at their January 28 meeting. The audience lled the commission chambers and spilled out into the hallway where speakers and chairs had been set up to accommodate the crowd. A court reporter too k down the quasi judicial proceedings, recording statements of attorneys fo r both sides, along with numerous other speakers. Arguments centered around the de nition o f “leisure” activities. Attorney Neil Montgomery presented St. Matthews House’s arguments, which cited use of the facility as a church. She felt use as a rehab facility with a restaurant and Christian conference/retreat componen t were justi ed uses for th e BOCC turns down rehab request 2014 School Related Employees acknowledgedby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It may take a village to raise a child, but it also takes one to run a school. On January 23, the Hendry County School Board took the time to acknowledge some of the “villagers” whose service is critical to schools, if not always recognized. Speaking of all of the individual school nominees, Superintendent of Schools Paul Puletti, congratulated the entire group on their selection for the honor and because, as he told them, “You keep it real.” Chosen from 14 honorees, one from each school or department in the district, the School Related Employee of the Year for 2014 is Margie Puletti. Ms. Puletti has worked for the school district for some 31 years. She is LaBelle Elementary School’s ESE paraprofessional and, coincidentally, Mr. Puletti’s sister-in-law. She is challenged to assist teachers, supervise students and must take appropriate training including CPI training and Autism training. She said she loves helping the students achieve their needs. Larry Worth of Human Resources called the group “The Best of the Best.” He also pointed out that it’s tough selecting just one winner. Each individual school winner has been recommended by their peers and then selected by a committee. Individual school awards went to: Curtis Kitchen, LaBelle Transportation, is a ex driver. His responsibilities include the safety of children every day.

property. Intervener attorney, representing the Birchwood Parkway Community, Inc. Matt Uhle, argued that a rehab program is not a “leisure” program and that drug rehabilitation would be the facility’s primary use not a use consistent with the county’s Land Use Plan, he said, because the purpose would not t in with the recreational and commercial character of the property. Other experts added their views and the county’s Associate Planner Sarah Catala put forth that group’s conclusion the special exception should be denied. The recommendation was based on the LPA’s decision that a substance abuse recovery facility for men, which included a conference center, did not meet the requirements set forth by the county’s Land Development Code. Van Ellison, President and CEO of St. Matthews House, compared the Port LaBelle cite to its Naples facility, located in a downtown area. The Port LaBelle site would include a business component catering and thrift shop, he said, adding that several jobs would be created for locals. However, opponents argued that an y jobs created would mainly be for those in the rehab program. They were concerned about losing the inn, often called a major hub for future development. Econominc Development Director Gregg Gillman promised to work, with St. Matthews House to nd an alternative site.

Get your eyes examined. 2 Caloosa Belle January 30, 2014If no one comes to the shelter by 9 p.m. the shelter is closed for the night and no one may enter. Everyone must be out by 7 a.m. for the start of the business day. No ID is required to stay in one of these shelters. People just need to sign in. The American Red Cross, in cooperation w ith Hendry County Emergency Management and local volunteers, staff the shelters. Along with Red Cross staf ng, the Salvation Army provides blankets. The shelters also provide hot drinks, snacks and hygiene kits to those who stay. The program has been two years in the planning, however, several big issues remain. One of the biggest problems is reaching those in need, when they need the shelter. Flyers in English and Spanish are posted but can only reach a small number of people. Openings are posted on public websites and Facebook pages, but many of those affected by the cold have no access to the internet. So a good communication process is needed. Transportation to the shelters is another v ery big problem. As they patrol, sheriff’s deputies have been instructed to contact homeless people w ho may need to use the shelter and prov ide a ride there if they need one. Sheriff’s deputies and Clewiston Police Of cers also provide security for the shelters. Lack of communication and transportation are seen as the reasons why the Hendry County cold shelters have gone virtually unused to this point. Thus far, the cold shelters have been opened ve times this year. Only two people have taken advantage of the shelter, both in Clewiston. No one has checked in to the LaBelle cold shelter at all. Members of the Emergency Cold Shelter Committee feel it is the community’s responsibility to reach out to those in need, so the shelters are open to anyone who needs a warm place to stay, including those without adequate heat in their homes. Emergency cold Shelter Committee Emergency Management, Red Cross, United Way, United Way 211, Salvation Army, Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce as well as the Cities of LaBelle and Clewiston. According to the 2010 Census, there are some 900 homeless people in Hendry County and the poverty rate at 29.67 percent. That means there must be many people who have need of shelter when the temperatures dip into the freezing zone. The problem is connecting with them to provide the information that can keep them warm and safe during freezing nights.

It is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It is a unique event that offers communities an opportunity to participate in the ght against cancer. The LaBelle Relay will be overnight for 13 hours, from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday, 13th. Teams of 10 to 15 people camp out at the local high school football stadium and take turns walking, jogging, or running around a track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. There is lots of entertainment, games and contests all night while each team has different foods to sell for the fundraising event.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. The date for this year’s Relay for Life printed several weeks ago was incorrect. This year the event will be held April 12 (not April 26). Events begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 7 a.m. the 13th.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News After being stopped because the rear w indow of his pickup truck was covered w ith a piece of plywood, a 63-year-old man w as later jailed on a felony drug charge. Franklin Lee Whidden, Eighth Ave., LaBelle, was arrested Sunday, Jan. 26, on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Whidden is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on an $8,000 bond. An arrest report by Deputy Leland Schoonmaker, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO), stated he stopped W hidden around 2:18 a.m. in the 600 block of S.R. 70 E. The man was stopped because the rear window of his 2000 Chevrolet pickup was reportedly a piece of plywood instead of glass. After stopping the man Deputy Schoonmaker asked for, and received, permission to search the truck. According to the report the deputy then found a glass pipe that appeared to be burnt on one end. The deputy also found two ashlight end caps that each contained a suspicious substance, continued the report. That substance, as well as the glass pipe, was eld tested and those tests allegedly indicated a positive result for the presence of meth. The deputy’s report does not indicate the weight of the purported methamphetamine. Deputy Schoonmaker stated he also issued Whidden a warning citation for the covered up back window. Sexagenarian allegedly caught with meth in Okee Pioneer Plantation residents are being asked to report any suspicious activities that could relate to a series of brush res. Last w eek re ghters fought several brush res in that community, which they suspect had been deliberately set. On January 22, PPVFD was called to put out a total of six res. The original call came in about 3:30 p.m. with two separate res in the area of Marco Avenue. Those res were followed quickly by four more, off Tampa A venue and Union. A total of about 23 acres were burned. Units from LaBelle, Clewiston, Montura and the Division of Forestry joined Pioneer re ghters in ghting the res. Fire ghters left the area about 10 p.m. The following evening, January 23, another re charred approximately 23 more acres. This re was at 23/24 Streets north of Lakeview Avenue. PPVFD Chief Raymond Timms said no structures were involved. The Division of Forestry is investigating. Pioneer deals with res On January 31, members of the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce and Homeland Security Investigation Division set up a controlled delivery of some 12 kilos of fake cocaine attached to real cocaine. The fake cocaine w as marked for identi cation later. The lawmen waited in the Winn-Dixie parking lot for a short time until Jose Luis Martinez, 30, pulled up in a van driven by W ilfredo Jimenez, 31. Wilfred Rivera Torres, 45, was the front passenger and Luis Steven Medina Diaz, 20, was the rear passenger. Kirsken Bezaves Hernandez, 37, was also in the van. The group all went to LaBelle Airport w here they gathered in a hangar. Bezaves and Torres stayed outside with the van. After being shown the cocaine, the others went outside, returning with a shoe box and fanny pack lled with money. At a speci c code word mentioned by the Response Team, all of the men were apprehended without incident. A total of $54,000 was found in the show box and pack, with another $1,440 in cash on Jimenez’ person. Inside the vehicle a Smith and Wesson model 6906 rearm, under the driver’s seat, was discovered and con scated. It was found to be stolen from Orange County, FL. Bezares, who said he was asleep in the back of the van, was released.

This weekend the Super Bowl – the biggest sporting event in America will take place. Imagine we are TV sportscasters on the sidelines of a football game to give the play-by-play. The team nearest us have their heads bowed in prayer, with the coach in the center. Suddenly they give a great cheer, and the coach trots out onto the eld by himself. The players go sit on the bench. Scene #1: “What’s going on?” we ask a 250 pound guard. “What’s the coach doing out there? “Oh, he’s going to play today.” “All by himself?” “Sure, why not? He’s had a lot more experience and training than the rest of us. W e’ve got a lot of rookies on this team, and w e might make mistakes. Anyway, they pay the coach well. We’re all here to cheer and support him—and look at the huge crowd that’s come to watch him play!” Bewildered, we watch as the opposing team kicks off. The coach catches the ball. He valiantly charges up the eld, but is buried under eleven opposing tacklers. He’s carried off half-conscious. Sound ridiculous? Isn’t that what we do at church? The members expect the minister to do the preaching, praying, witnessing, and visiting because he’s paid to do that and he’s better trained. Think with me. According to Ephesians 4:11, 12, Christ has given the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers “to prepare God’s people for w orks of service.” God gives leaders to the church, not to do all the work, but to help all of God’s people to do it! Lay people are not there simply to pay pastors. Rather, pastors, evangelists, and teachers are to equip the laity to be ministers! Your pastor is meant to be a kind of playing coach. His main function is to help you as a Christian discover your spiritual gifts, develop them, and use them to build up the Body of Christ. Scene #2: The team sees everyone has to play, so they’re take the eld and huddle. They huddle...and huddle...and huddle. The referee calls a penalty for delay of game, moving the ball back ve yards. Still the team huddles again. The referee calls another penalty and the ball is eventually moved back to their own goal line. “Hey coach!” shouts the quarterback. “This is the greatest huddle I’ve ever been in. What great guys! We have the best fellowship...and some of these guys really know the play book. Some have memorized over a hundred plays and can analyze them precisely. We learn so much in this huddle.” “But why don’t you get up on the line and play?” “Why? We just want bigger and better huddles! We might get hurt. No one gets hurt in a huddle.” Churches are in big trouble if they become a “holy huddle” gathered Sunday after Sunday, singing, praising, enjoying each other—but never setting out on the line to do what they learn. The church is supposed to be Christ’s body—his hands, his feet, his voice—by which he carries out his plans in the world. God intends that “through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known” (Eph 3:10.) The church is to be God’s light in a dark, corrupt society. The Christian life was never meant to be lived only in church for a few hours on Sunday. It’s meant to be lived in the public arena—on the ring line at school, the of ce, and the neighborhood. Sure, we need worship, training and fellowship with other Christians—like a team needs a huddle. But it’s what happens after the huddle that the game is all about. Scene #3: the team breaks out of the huddle. But instead of lining up against the opponent, they break into groups, arguing with each other. They start shoving, and two of them actually get into a ght. “What’s wrong now?” we ask as one of them walks off the eld in disgust. “Those clowns can’t agree on anything,” he says. “Two are arguing over the color of the uniforms. Two more are quarreling about kneeling in the huddle. Others are arguing about calling it ‘personal’ football verses ‘social’ football. They can’t agree if the team is important. Some of the white players say the blacks should go play on their own eld, and some of the black guys don’t like the music the band is playing. Some others are ghting over whether women being allowed to play. And I’m quitting because I can pass a lot better than that guy, and they won’t let me quarterback.” The Game Plan says Christ “is our peace...His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace...to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility” (Ephesians 2:14-16). Can the non-churched see peace in our church relationships? Within the Body of Christ there is plenty of room for diversity of gifts, but underlying that diversity is unity. “Be completely humble and gentle. Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit... one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all...” (Ephesians 4:2-6). Isn’t it time to show our oneness in truth and love to a watching world? So the rst half ends. The team goes to the locker room defeated and demoralized. However, they emerge a different team. Now they’re playing together. They huddle, slap each other on the back, and take the line. They’re off the ball with split-second timing, with no hesitation. Each player fullls his assignment, and soon they score a touchdown, and another, and another. Result: they wo Afterwards in the locker room the players are exhausted, cut and bruised, but happy. “What happened at halftime to change this team?” we ask, the coach. “We were sitting here beaten,” he says, “and suddenly a kind of presence seemed to come over us. I started talking to the players, pointing out my mistakes, and theirs, and they started talking. Everyone was honest. Nobody blamed the others. We took a good look at ourselves. Then someone recalled that the Great Coach, the one who invented the game, also wrote the Master Game Plan. Wouldn’t it make sense to see what he said?” We remembered how he literally gave himself to get the game started and to teach that rst team everything he knew. So we got out the original Game Plan and read about basics such as each player knowing his place and dedicating himself to it, about pulling together, being willing to sacri ce, knowing the aim of the game, and using the proper equipment he designed. “Well, we were quiet. It felt as if the Great Coach was with us, as if somehow his Spirit got inside us. Suddenly, we were up! Motivated! Ready to go! We can’t take the credit. It goes to Him!”Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80.

Parents of the groom are WEDDING 7 Caloosa Belle January 30, 2014 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It was LHS senior Rachel Reinbott’s turn to make a commitment to the next step in her future by signing a letter of intent to play for South Florida State College. The ceremony took place in the LHS library January 22 with her family, friends and coaches all proudly watching. The LHS Volleyball Coach Lori Perkins was rst to share her recollections and insights into Rachel. Ms. Perkins noted that Rachel made volleyball varsity as a freshman, starting as an outside hitter. She also enumerated her milestones in softball including earning the Coaches Award as a junior and All Star captain as a senior. She played a major role in defeating Bishop Verot and called Rachel a “ten percenter” one who works harder than all of the other 90 percent. Rachel is a hard worker with determination and guts, who leaves a legacy in volleyball with the Cowgirls and never lost her sense of having fun as she played. Her traveling team coach Clint Raulerson told the group that Rachel had taught him patience since she was nine years old, noting that she would outwork everyone else on the practice eld even then. He called her one of the “elite” out elders in Southwest Florida. She can hit, run, dive and gives it all she’s got as well as being a great person and teammate, Ms. Perkins continued. Cowgirl Softball Coach Raymond Marroquin said Rachel has a great character, softball team leader and player of the year One of the best we ever had.” South Florida State Softball Head Coach Carlos Falla expressed admiration for Rachel and for the overall character of the athletes his school has recruited from LHS. That character, as well as their athletic ability, keeps SFC coming back for LaBelle’s students, he said. He added that Rachel is going to the next level with the Panthers and will need to work hard, learning to adjust to her ne w surroundings, new team and higher level o f play. “LHS has a good program and good kids,” Coach Falla said, adding that many o f them also come from good families always important to a foundation of a student’s character on and off the eld of play. Reinbott signs to play for SFS Last week the Cowboys played at Gateway and posted a nice win away from home. The Cowboys were led in rebounding by two guards Bookie Mitchell and Mike Lopez each with 6. E Gonzalez, a forward, also had 6 rebounds. Mike Lopez also had 5 steals and 10 points. The Cowboys were hot from 3 point land making 10 out of 22. Grant Gillman hit 4 and Mike Lopez had 2. Grant Gillman led the team in scoring with 20 while Jordan Lopez had 14 and also contributed 3 assists. Senior Manny Taylor came off the bench to hit all 3 of his eld goal attempts to nish with 6 points. Also last week Clewiston came to town and the Cowboys won a close game against their neighboring town. Clewiston came in wanting to avenge a 4 point loss in Clewiston to the Cowboys a few weeks ago and they certainly made it known from the beginning. The Tigers jumped out to a 14-4 lead in the 1st quarter but the Cowboys got it together and took the lead by 7 at halftime. The Cowboys pushed the lead up a bit more but the Tigers came back and made it close in the last quarter and a half for an exciting nish. Jordan Lopez led the team on defense with 6 steals while Mike Lopez led in rebounding with 5 and 3 other Cowboys chipped in with 4 rebounds each, E Gonzalez, E Ingebrigtsen and G Gillman. Grant Gillman scored 19 points and Jordan and Elias nished with 9 and 8 respectively. The Cowboys lost to SW Florida Christian in their gym where the host team shot the 3 pointers very well. The Cowboys lost by 11 to bring their 6 game winning streak to an end. The Cowboys were down by 7 at the end of the rst quarter and 14 at halftime and never really recovered although a few times they cut the lead to single digits in the second half. While the Cowboys have enjoyed some hot 3 point shooting of their own in past games, in this game it was SWFL Christian who gave us some of own medicine. Overall the Cowboys shot only 22 % from 3 point land but were cold in general only shooting 42% from inside the arc. Senior Elias had 4 assists and J Lopez tallied 5. G Gillman led in rebounding with 4 and M Lopez had 3 steals. E Gonzalez and J Lopez were the only two hot from the eld scoring 14 and 12 respectively. G Gillman chipped in with 13. Senior and Captain Mark Sloan was ill for the Clewiston game and did not play and was still recovering a bit in the SWFL Christian game. Schedule nal week of regular season 1-30 Home against Gateway 7:30 p.m. 1-31 Home against Evangelical Christian (SENIOR NIGHT) 6 p.m. Cowboys win 2 and lose 1 heading into nal week, record 18-4 Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSeated from left: Mom Lisa Reinbott, Rachel, Dad Michael Reinbott.

Students took part in the Million Minute Marathon and read 12,235 minutes on Monday to send in to the state in hopes of exceeding 33 million minutes read statewide last year. Daily clues were given from the current FRA and Sunshine State books with students from all classes racing to the teacher on the playground in hopes of being the rst class to correctly name the title. On Friday, Pat Dobbins, Administrator/Health Of cer, Florida Dept. of Health in Hendry and Glades County, presented a comic book lesson to third and fourth graders about Iron Man and the Habit Heroes. This introduced students to a new way of thinking about healthy living by encouraging students to make a plan to hydrate, stay active, and snack on power foods. All students were given a copy of the comic book, as well as the Habit Hero bracelets, to remind them about healthy habits. It was a fun week and West Glades School achieved the state objective of promoting the enjoyment of reading to our students. W GS celebrates literacy week

by Dale ConyersCaloosa Belle “It’s has been decades with a lot of work by a lot of people to get this building done,” Hugo Geistman, president of the Ortona Community Association (OCA) stated in his opening remarks at the dedication of the new community building on Tuesday, January 14. In total there were seven past presidents of the association present. The idea for the center originated with the rst president of the association Kathy Pate and each of the six presidents since her have done what they could to get this center going. The concept for the building goes back to the 1980s when the re department building w as built in Ortona. The land was donated by Vance Storter and as long as it stayed a re department they could use that piece of property. In the same year the Community A ction Group of Ortona was formed and they were given half the re department building. In 1992 the Ortona Community Association was formed, and Kathy Pate was the rst president. The association started w ith nine members. “In those times they worked to get this building going but there was always a reason for it not to be done,” Hugo said. In 2005 the Glades County Commissioners, with the urging of Alvin Ward, set aside $100,000 for the Ortona Community Building contingent on state funding. With this in place the OCA president continued to go to the state with the support of the Glades County Commission to get the state matching funds but was continuously dropped from the governors budget. “It was a very frustrating time and it was like the OCA was getting nowhere with the building. I got a good lesson in patience,” Hugo said. The association started holding spaghetti dinners as a fundraiser to help fund projects for the youth of the community. The county commissioners started coming to the fundraisers and saw the need for a new building when the association asked for help air conditioning the re house to improve the library housed there. At their rst spaghetti dinner in the new building a record 200 people were served. The Ortona Library was started by Sam James and Anita Martinec and has grown to become one of the main libraries in Glades County. In 2011 the Glades County Commission approved the building of a new community center for the OCA and construction of the $190,000 project was completed in late December 2013. “It was not just the county commissioners who did this for Ortona. This money eventually did come from the one cent sales tax, which means that anybody who bought anything in Glades County helped pay for it,” Donna Storter-Long, Glades County Commission Chairperson said. Glades County has a seven percent sales tax. Six percent of that goes to the state and the one percent is Glades County’s to use. In the September 2006 primary, the electorate chose by refendum to continue collecting the sales tax based on these limited uses: (language was on the ballot) 1. Construction and improvement of county of ce space and maintenance facilities; 2. Construction and improvement of road system, drainage and public works in the county; 3. Construction and improvement of community centers and recreational facilities; 4. Purchase of land or improvements to land related to public facilities. Two volunteers were recognized for all the work they did in helping with the construction of the new community center and play ground. Sheldon Barroquillo, helped clear the lot the building is on and was instrumental in designing and building the playground that’s on site for the children o f the area. Paul Sturtevant told Hugo where the lot was and helped clear it too. “There’s just so many wonderful things about this community and I’m so glad its m y home,” Commissioner Long said.

Area veterans, Freemasons, friends and family members are invited to the LaBelle Masonic Lodge on Jaycee-Lions Drive in LaBelle for a commemorative memorial service for the four Chaplains of World War II who died in the sinking of the troop ship Dorchester. The service will begin at 2 p.m., Sunday, February 2, and will be followed by a social gathering. The four Chaplains—a Methodist, a Dutch Reform Pastor, a Catholic Priest, and a Jewish Rabbi—all perished along with nearly 700 other young Americans who were aboard the ship. As the ship entered Northern Atlantic waters it was torpedoed and sank within 30 minutes. The Methodist Pastor, Rev. George Fox, was also a Freemason. Nick Fidanza, Worshipful Master of the LaBelle Masonic Lodge, said the Lodge is coordinating the service with the Not-ForPro t Chapel of the Four Chaplains located at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. Donations for the Chapel and its on-going mission, will be accepted. The service occurs on the 71st anniversary of the tragedy. “These are American heros we don’t ever want to forget,” Fidanza said. “These men didn’t carry rearms or actually engage in the battles, but the young men who did often depended greatly on their strength and courage. The Four Chaplains epitomize that verse in the Bible found in the Book of John, Chapter 15, verse 13.” War heros being honored by Masons Bingo is back!Bingo is back at Our Lady Queen of Heaven at 7 p.m..
