Hendry County can begin the
process of building a new Emer-
gency Operations Center (EOC)
in earnest now. With the award
of $1,453,310 (up to $901,512 in
General Revenue Funds and up
to $551,798 in Hazard Mitigation
Grant Program funds) plus
$2,030,336 budgeted from the
county's CDBG Disaster Recov-
ery Initiative, there is now some
$3,483,646 to work with.
The EOC is the central com-
mand post for official activities
during a declared emergency. For
years designated personnel from
essential services, including
fire/rescue, law enforcement,
water, communications and oth-
ers, worked out of cramped
quarters in the sheriff's office
conference room when activated
for an emergency.
A site has yet to be chosen,
but the "most ideal," according
to Hendry County Director of
Grants and Special Projects Ron
Zimmerly, is owned by the
school board in Port LaBelle.
Negotiations are underway
between the county and school
board for that site.
This site is considered best
because is already has close
proximity to water and sewer

The front will be sheathed in

On the second floor will be

5,200+ acre site was annexed
into the city several years ago.
The development will include

Mr. Zimmerly said the county
does not have a design as yet, but
a working group is visiting EOC's
in Highlands County, Cape Coral,
Lee and Palm Beach counties to
gather information and ideas.
Although there is no design,
the building is conceived as
about 6,450 square feet with a
total cost of $3.34 million, revised
from the original figure of $3.8

SAO welcomes volunteers
By Kristin Hunter
Have you ever thought of
working for a State Attorney's
office? Interested in criminal jus-
tice, or just want to volunteer?
Well, here's your chance. The
Twentieth Judicial Circuit State
Attorney's Office serving Char-
lotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry
and Lee counties is in need of
some .good volunteers to help
out with all of their many
demanding needs. These needs
include things such as helping to
find witnesses, filing paperwork,
assisting a victim's advocate in
court, answering the phone or
just helping with whatever
needs to be done. All volunteers
must be at least 16 years of age,
work a minimum of eight hours
per week, have a background
check, be fingerprinted, sign a
confidentiality sheet and take a
drug test. Because the State
Attorney's Office in LaBelle is so
small, it is a great way to get
loads of exposure into how the
law works. You will work with
people in all departments of a
State Attorney's Office such as
Felonies, Victim Advocates, Sup-
port Staff and Investigation/Wit-
ness Coordination. You could
receive training in areas such as
the Traumas of Law Enforce-
ment. The State Attorney's
Office receives cases from law
enforcement arrests or through
a judicial warrant and then
builds enough hard evidence to
prosecute. Cases include misde-
meanors, juvenile cases and
felonies and more specifically
domestic violence, drug arrests,
or sexual assault/battery cases
and more. The State Attorney's
Office works directly with law
enforcement agencies to let
them know what they will need
to have a successful prosecu-
Norie Haas has been a volun-
teer at the State Attorney's office
since June 2006. Before that, she
was an RN in the operating
room trauma department for 30
plus years. She was at Lee
Memorial Hospital most recent-
ly. She had been working part
time in the trauma department
since her children were born
and just decided that it was time
to retire from that type of job. At
Christmastime she decided to

ing this by-product it will hope-
fully create cheaper gasoline and
in turn, be a sustainable
resource that will not deplete
overtime like the limited
resource of oil. The idea right
now is to put the ethanol into
gas to make it more efficient.
Some race cars already run
on 100 percent ethanol so it is
possible to do.
According to Mr. Alexander,
the US currently imports 65 per-
cent of its fuel so this will help
eliminate the need to rely on
other countries for so much oil.
This will not only be better for
the environment, but will also
boost LaBelle's economy by cre-
ating jobs. The ethanol plant will
require some one hundred
employees. It will be interesting
to see how this exciting project
pans out for not only the com-
munity of LaBelle, but the US in

in the Caloosa Belle to be a volun-

According to Sheriff Ronnie
Lee, on Feb. 25, Hendry County
Sheriff's Deputies Donald Davis
and Christian Buchhofeer,
observed a 1996 Plymouth Cara-
van parked at the Prime Time Shell
Station on State Road 80 in LaBelle.
Since all lights were off, and the sta-
tion was not open for business, the
deputies inquired at to why the
vehicle was parked there. Deputies
observed several items in the back
of the van and, after further investi-
gation, determined the items to
have been stolen.
Two trucks parked at 400 5th
Avenue in LaBelle and a truck
parked at the LaBelle Motel had
been burglarized and the items in
the van were the items stolen out
of these trucks. Deputies recov-
ered a Echo Chain Saw, 5 gallon
can of gasoline, Rotating Laser,
four 12 pack of soda drinks, two
cases of bottled water, and a bag
of charcoal. Marshall Edwin Seitz,
age 34, of LaBelle, was arrested
and charged with three counts of
Burglary of a Conveyance and
three counts of Larceny. Bond
was set at $55,500.

secondary education; he attended
the Smithville All Age Primary
School where he grew up and
eagerly grasped the concepts
taught in the academics, especially
John grew up with former
Thelma Lee Gayle in Smithville
and was smitten by her. This
attraction sustained them into
marriage and through the birth of
five children; Fitz, Avis, Louisa,
John Clive and Howard, on to the
celebration of their 50th wedding
anniversary in November 2005.
The early part of these years
saw John as a well liked, conscien-
tious, hard working fireman with
the Jamaica Fire Brigade for 14
years, after which he resigned in
order to bring his family to the
United States. He first came over
after being given the opportunity
by his uncle, Leonard McClymont,
he then later immigrated to the
United States in 1970 with Thelma
and the first four children and land-
ed in New York. He then relocated
to LaBelle in 1975 with Thelma
and his youngest child, Howard,
enjoying the warmer weather and
the more relaxed pace.
Here in LaBelle, he established
himself as a business owner with
the restaurant Shady Oaks on
Highway 80; he was a pioneer in
his own right as being the first
Jamaican to have a business in
LaBelle. He did not stop there, he
then continued on by building and
operating McLymont's Fina Station
simultaneously right next to it. He
also owned a multi-business cen-
ter on Hwy 29, bought and sold
numerous acres of property with
the previous Port LaBelle land
development corporation, General
Development along with privately
buying and selling parcels of land.
He is survived by his loving wife
Thelma, his five children-Fitz, Avis,
Louisa, Clive and Howard, 15

In Memory of Everett "Jay" Anderson
We lost our beloved Jay on February 21, 2007. He was only 38 years old, but
left this life due to a heart attack. When the phone call came in the wee hours
of the morning I could not believe what I was being told. This was something
that happened to other people, not our family, we were all in shock.
Jay had so many friends. It seems that there were no strangers in his life. He
wore a smile. Nothing seemed to get him down and he was always ready to
lend a helping hand. Jay was a hard working man and took pride in all that he
did. When he was in high school he worked at Burger King. Jay went to work
every morning before school and then again in the afternoon or evening. He
was no slacker. Jay went all the way through school, first grade through twelfth
and never missed a day.
Jay lived in North Carolina for several years. We really missed him while he
was gone. It was wonderful when he decided to move back "home". He has
an eleven year old daughter, Tiffany, who still lives there. He met his present
wife Cher and they have a beautiful little boy D.J. Jay's time with Cher was cut
short, but they were so happy together, I am very grateful that he had that
time with her and D.J.
Jay's sister, Lynn Music, said that she has learned through the actions of her
brother, that adversities in life are to best overcome if they are used as build-
ing blocks for good character instead of road blocks for failure. We are all
proud of Jay's many accomplishments.
I'd like to thank everyone who attended Jay's service, spoke kind words,
sent cards and flowers, phoned or offered their support. You are truly angels
in our time of need.

BAD FOR BUSINESS: I went up a local thrift store on Friday. I wanted
to buy a bed that was being set up but it didn't have a sticker on it yet. An
employee said it wouldn't be for sale until Tuesday morning, so I told
them I would come back on Tuesday. On Tuesday morning and the bed
already had a "Sold" ticket on it as of Saturday when the store isn't even
open. If they didn't want to sell the bed to me they should have told me.
There were two other people waiting to buy it too who had been told the
OLD TIMER'S DINNER: I have been going to the Old Timers dinner
with my mother and father-in-law for quite some time. This was a nice
place that the old timers could go. They like to reminisce and catch up on
important events in their lives. I'm very upset with the young lady that
stood up to scold them like children. You could have gotten your point
across with just a few kind words not a lengthy lecture or reprimand. This
was the sour moment of the evening. I feel very bad for all the old timers
that had to sit through that. You deserve the utmost respect. I'm also upset
with the meal. Who came up with that concoction and where did all the
money go? My family and I will no longer support this event and if I hurt
any one's feelings, just think of the feelings that you hurt.
CONCERNED OLD TIMER: In reference to the Old Timers Dinner:
Who was the young woman who got up and why did she think she had
the authority to get up and interrupt the speaker to reprimand the Old
Timers attending and socializing? She spoke of being rude-well she needs
to look in a mirror! As a life long resident of LaBelle I was embarrassed,
and for the people attending for their first time, what a shock! My family
and I will not be attending next year! A little note about the food my per-
sonal opinion only local caterer's should be used. Traditions are being
broken by people not knowing and understanding the actual history and
Old Timers of this community.

Make weight loss easier
By Mary Ruth Prouty
An idea to help painlessly with
weight loss meet yourself half-
You can lose weight and still eat
your favorite foods! Just decrease
your portion sizes by half.
For example, if you are used to
eating a whole deli or sub sand-
wich at lunch, just eat half and sup-
plement your meal with raw veg-
gies on the side and finish of with
some fresh fruit. Then wait to see if
you're still hungry. If you pause
after eating the first half and allow
yourself a few minutes to feel sati-
ated, you just may find you're too
full to eat the other half anyway.

More than 10 billion dollars
per year is spent on food and bev-

3 billion is spent annually on

Let's try it 'Plain and Thank You
Simple' in Hendry
In this hectic age of high tech-
nology, it's not too hard to believe
that one of the most basic prem-
ises of human behavior has been
lost in the shuffle. Other than
vague references on an individual
case basis, how often do you
hear the Ten Commandments
being mentioned, let alone dis-

(7) No Killing.
(8) Watch your mouth.
(9) Don't take what isn't

your buddy's stuff.
Now that's what I call "Plain

If there is to be a lesson

tors and Congressmen cited ille-
gals, hurricane recovery and wild
animal assaults in the Everglades
as issues of priority.

who loves Florida feels is a
decent interval for Congress to
act on these issues, he has come

thank the Swamp Cabbage Com-

the Pioneer Family of 2007. It was

be served fried gator tail, Swamp

Bread. Thanks to The LaBelle Her-

made all this possible. It was great
visiting with old friends and meet-

ment to the Doubs was that one
sister, Carmella Doub Magton, was
unable to come from New Mexico.
The Saturday morning break-
fast was delicious, thanks to the
City of LaBelle and caterer Peggy
Hampton. We had a chance to
meet county and city officials, and
the Swamp Cabbage Queen,
Esophia, before leaving the City
Hall for the parade that began at
the Catholic Church.
Rosa's granddaughter, Melissa
Nash Andrews, from West Palm
Beach, furnished the float for the
family to ride in the parade. Thanks
to the LaBelle Chrysler, Plymouth
Dodge, for the use of two convert-
ibles that transported the overflow
from the float.
It was thrilling to see all the peo-
ple lined up on both sides of the
road along the route to the Barron
Park, and to seek out friends.
After the parade, thanks to the
Swamp Cabbage Committee, a
luncheon was furnished for the
family at the Park by the gazebo.
This gave us a chance to visit and
celebrate together. Thanks for the
Pioneer Family plaque, and to
everyone who helped with all the
activities we participated in. It was
a wonderful experience for the
entire family, bringing the young
and the old together. We will cher-

So once again, we would like to
thank you all for honoring the
Doub family, and especially Fletch-
er and Susana Doub, who moved
to LaBelle in 1924. They would
have been so proud.
The Doub Family
A few weeks ago, someone
dropped off and abandoned two
medium sized dogs on Hidden
Hammock Drive in Fort Denaud.
One was black and one was light
colored, probably a pit-bull mix.
Both appeared properly nourished.
After a couple of days, one of our
neighbors took the dogs to the
Caloosa Humane Society in
LaBelle. Roughly six weeks ago,
another writer told of dogs being
abandoned in Muse. This is a dis-
gusting situation, and it has hap-
pened before in our neighbor-
hood. Anyone who wishes to get
rid of their pets can take them to
the Humane Society, and they will
accept them, and then make every
effort to adopt them out. Only low-
class heartless people will mistreat
their pets by abandonment, possi-
bly allowing them to starve to
death. If anyone reading this
knows who dropped off these
dogs, please call me (I am in the
phone book), or the Sheriff's
office, or the Humane Society, and
report to us who did this. We will
cooperate to prosecute them to the
full extent of the law. Do you have
any neighbors who just had two of
their dogs disappear? Our commu-
nity needs to come together to stop
these people. If they will abuse
their pets, they will abuse their chil-
Help Healthy Families
make a difference
loannis Gountas, BA, M.S.
Information Officer Hendry Coun-
ty Health Department
LABELLE- The Florida Legisla-
ture made a wise decision to invest
in Healthy Families Florida in 1998.
Healthy Families Florida is the only
program in Florida proven to pre-
vent child abuse before it ever
begins. The nationally creden-
tialed, community-based, volun-
tary home visiting program begins
providing services during pregnan-
cy or at the birth of a child.
In Hendry and Glades counties,
Healthy Families is sponsored by
Hendry & Glades Counties Health
Departments and annually serves
210 families and their children.
Each year in 53 of Florida's 67
counties, Healthy Families provides
services to 13, 000 high-risk fami-
lies, while sparing 21,000 children
from injury, emotional and psycho-
logical trauma, developmental
delay or even worse.
An independent five-year evalu-
ation showed that Healthy Families
Florida's participants.have 20 per-
cent less child abuse and neglect
than all families in their target serv-
ice area in spite of the fact that the
participants are at significantly
higher risk for abuse and neglect.
Evidence-based outcomes show
that Healthy Families Florida also
improves the health of mothers
and their children, increases par-
ent-child interaction, and improves
family self-sufficiency. Research
has shown investing in proven pre-
vention programs like Healthy Fam-
ilies will avoid costs associated with
abuse, such as the need for out of
home care, special education, teen
pregnancy, school dropouts, juve-
nile delinquency, and substance
The Legislature has continued
to fund Healthy Families, but the
program has gone four years with-
out any increase to address the
escalating costs of providing these
important services. If the program
does not receive a funding increase
this year, the quality of services pro-
vided, and thus the outstanding
results achieved in our community
and throughout Florida will be
severely compromised. Parenting
is a demanding job and parents
and caregivers deserve our sup-
port. Healthy Families has proven
evidence-based outcomes and is
making a real difference. Families
in Hendry and Glades counties
need the Florida Legislature to
invest additional funds so Healthy
Families can continue the great
work of preventing child abuse and

The bridge always seems to be up to let boat traffic
through which causes hundreds of people to be delayed.
One leisurely boater shouldn't cause 100 working people
to be late. How can this issue be fixed?
Dr. Hal Haering said, "There
are a few different options:
#1 to fill the river back in
with rock and limestone and
bring it back to it's natural
level of six inches to three
Feet. That would cut out
some of the boat traffic, #2
to move the bridge and
divert it to Nobles Rd. into
Glades County so that it
gets around Hwy. 78 and

simple. Have specific times
Kristin Hunter/Caloosa Bellethat boats can go through.
Have it posted in big numbers on the pilings and ring a
loud bell when it is time for boats to go through. It has
been proven effective in Ft. Lauderdale with the Las Olas
Bridge by opening it every half hour on the weekends and
maybe on the hour or forty-five minute mark during the
week. 90 percent of the boat traffic is leisure anyway so if
they have to wait they can wait for a little while."
Julie Reinard said, "It should
be changed to a span bridge.
That is the only way we won't
have to worry about the
bridge being raised. Having
to worry about the bridge
being up causes such a
domino effect; my clients are
late sometimes because the
bridge is up and if they are
late it puts me behind so

Daphne Fleming said, "It
shouldn't be opened after
lunch. It's not fair to work-
ers who need to get back to
work on time. People can
plan better if it's open on
the hour or the half hour.
Somebody's going to be
inconvenienced but it
should be the vacationing
boaters, not the townspeo-
ple who are working and
pay for the bridge anyway. I
really hope something is
done because I feel bad for
the people that have to wait all the time."
Kerry English said, "The
hours of operation need to
be changed. It should be
closed from 3-6 p.m. for
rush hour traffic, instead of
2-4 p.m. in the afternoon. I
try to avoid it at all costs.
Those boaters don't have
anything better to do so it
won't hurt them to wait."
Jenny Sabella said, "With-
out going through the
expense and trouble of
building another bridge, the
bridge should simply be on
S t a more strict schedule for
fp,.6 a recreational boaters. (Of
course, emergency and
water management boats
would be allowed at all
times.) It would be great if it
opened twice a day; once in
the morning at 10 a.m. and
once in the afternoon at 1
p.m. that way it doesn't interfere with either the school
buses or rush hour traffic. And then it could be open all
night long from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. If everyone knows what time
the bridge is going up they can avoid getting stuck."

it, and stick a few sheets of paper
inside. When you are waiting in

you can fill that dead time. Also
you can address and get ready to
mail any cards that should go
out that month and put them
with your bills to be paid. I am

A review: Mama: Root, Hog, or Die -
By Sara Williams
Mama delivers the neighbor's
baby while the dead drunk doctor
snoozes in his chair. Mama feeds
the hobos off the train who know
she'll never turn them away.
Mama leaps on a tractor and
drives it aside to save a town's
prize daffodil garden. She rescues
stray cats and children alike.
Mama's the picture of benevo-
lence to all and sundry in Barbara
Oehlbeck's tales of her mother,
Mama, Root, Hog, or Die, a won-
derful book comprised of a series
of winning essays about
Oehlbeck's own country upbring-
ing in the hills of Virginia and
In those golden days of yore,
jars of homemade preserves lined
the cellar floor to ceiling, the
chickens were hand-raised and
plucked fresh for the table. A
child's allowance was the prince-
ly sum of a penny a week. At one
point Youngest Daughter is in the
attic with Mama as they delve
through a chest full of bits of
cloth, buttons, and thread, which
one day will become a handmade
"Mama, we're rich!" cries Bar-
bara, aka, "Youngest Daughter."
"Well, if you think we're rich, I
guess we are," Mama replies.
Mama's pithy country wisdom
leaves the reader yearning for
what's been lost in our culture,
the sense that there's nothing so
valuable as the quilt handmade
from scraps of Youngest Daugh-
ter's dresses; a life hewn from
store-bought goods is not nearly
so fulfilling as the one hewn from
Mama's one of those Blue
Ridge Mountain ladies of the first
order, capable of handling a chain
saw as easily as a sewing
machine. She could man a band
saw or whittle a plug to fix a bro-
ken water pipe, but it's Mama's
drive and curiosity that set her
Mama's a natural when it
comes to plants and gardening,
but when a strange pear tree
shows up in her yard, she writes
the Department of Agriculture to
find out what it is. She signs off on
her query: "Ever'body calls me
Mama in these parts." Back
comes the official letter,
addressed to "Dear Mama," and
yes indeed the pear tree is a rare
Mama feeds and encourages a
starving neighbor boy and then
follows up with a visit to his
teacher to see whether he can
catch up in school. The teacher
remarks that Mama hasn't both-
ered to ask about her own two
sons. Mama's own boys are near
the top of their class, the teacher
says to which Mama replies,
"Well, they just better pass or
they'll be eatin' standing up' for a
To her own four children,
Mama's something else, a fierce
presence who demands obedi-
ence. Mostly Mama cows her irre-
pressible Youngest Daughter with
her tart tongue and stern lectures.
Mama wearies of Youngest
Daughter's need to pepper her
with questions. All she wants is
for the child to keep quiet and
observe; fortunately for Youngest
Daughter, her grandmother
indulges her questions and by
offering questions of her own,
encourages the child to prune
and shape her intellect. Mama,
however, perpetually withholds
the approval the child desires.
Youngest Daughter's chatty
ways win her a birth on the local
radio station, but even this does-
n't impress Mama. It's not until
she brings home a doctor hus-
band does Mama offer a crumb of,
back-handed praise: "Well, you
finally done something' worth-
Youngest Daughter never quite
catches on to what Little Brother
knows from the get-go. There are
ways to outsmart Mama. When
he's caught red-spooned in the
cellar eating Mama's preserves
straight from the jar, Mama orders
him to present himself before her
with a green willow switch.
When Little Brother appears in
the doorway dragging a limb so
big it gets caught in the door,
Mama has to leave the room to
hide her suppressed smile.
"Mama is a fascinating book
that grabs your heart, mind and
soul and never lets go," says the
dean of Florida writers, Patrick
Smith, author of A Land Remem-
bered. I couldn't agree more. I've
been aware of Mama from its ear-
liest drafts, when Oehlbeck
rushed to set down a book that
spilled into her consciousness
and demanded to be written.
As I browsed again through
the beautifully produced, sepia-
toned volume that has the
weighty presence of one family's
photo album, I realize how right
Patrick Smith is. Mama's antics
have stuck in my own conscious-
ness, coming back to me at odd
moments, sometimes like a burr
stuck in the throat, and at other
times with the sweet fragrance of
the roses that Mama brought to

I SPORTS FANS! I
I Brought to you by
I When sports fans talk about records
I that will never be broken, the accom-
Iplishments of one athlete are rarely con-
I sidered but certainly worthy: the college I
I basketball scoring records of "Pistol' I
I Pete Maravich. During his career at LSU I
I in the late 1960s. Maravich averaged an I
I astonishing 44.2 points per game and I
I finished with 3,667 total two marks I

I was coached in college by his father, I

I might have heard of NFL Hall of Fame
I player and coach Mike Ditka.
I Can you name the only NASCAR
Driver to qualify for the Chase for the
INextel Cup in his rookie season? The
answer is racing prodigy Denny Hamli.
In his amazing rookie season of 2006,
the Virginia-born, baby-faced Hamlin
won two races, earned three poles, had
eight top-five finishes and 20 top-10 hin
ishes to qualify for the Chase, in which
he finished third with 6,407 points, just
68 behind '06 Cup winner Jimmic
Johnson. Along the way, Hamlin pock-
eted almost $4.4 million in winnings.
A spot in the Gulf Cup final was at
stake when the soccer team from Saudi
Arabia squared off against the squad
from United Arab Emirates in January
of 2007. With the game scoreless at the
Send of regulation and being played in
injury time, UAE striker Ismael Matar
connected to give his team a 1-0 victory.

acerca del asunto durante la

13 de febrero dijo que el plan
tenfa algunas fallas que no
servirlan muy bien. El juez pien-

barato imponer un program de
gente vigilada que est6 afuera de
la carcel. Cada prisionero genera
un gasto de $18,200 por afio. La
propuesta del juez es mantener
a los prisioneros vigilados hasta
el dfa del juicio. Por supuesto
que esto no podria funcionar
con prisioneros peligrosos. Sin
embargo el program no solu-
cionarfa el problema pero le
ahorrarfa $50.000 al Condado.
Algunos piensan que dejar libres
a los prisioneros no es la mejor

Debido a la naturaleza del

tomar ventajas del program a la
