Neighborly help making a comeback

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
It used to be neighborhoods were
close. Neighbors helped each other out in
lean times and in good times whenever a
little something extra was needed. In days
gone by, neighbors just naturally provided
a little safety net for each other.
This kind of neighbor may not be as
scarce as they seem these days.
A group of local residents have come
up with the idea of a Good Neighbor
Award. With a mixture of faiths and back-
grounds, these folks just decided that they
could reach out to one local resident once
a month and provide them with a help-
ing hand. The group is adamant that all
members remain anonymous if anyone
knows who they are, they would not be
able to carry on this unique community
So, how does this work?
Members of the group choose some-
one in the community that needs a little
help. The recipient can be anybody who
just needs a little help or a little pick-me-
up. These will be good, hardworking peo-
ple who don't ask for anything. The award
might be cleaning up their yard, fixing a
cabinet or a good house cleaning. Jobs
are limited to four hours in one day.
The group's contact person gets in
touch with their chosen handyman,
known only as "David," and gives him
the information on the neighbor of the
The contact person will try to get in
touch with a family or friend of the recipi-
ent in advance, so they can be aware that
David will be coming and just what he'll
be doing there.

how to contact the newspaper.

David receives a cashiers check from
the group for his work and is under strict
orders not to accept tips or gratuities of
any kind.
The group has a sign that they would
like to place in the recipient's yard for the
month, but it's up to the homeowner if

they want the sign or not.
The Good Neighbor Award is just a
"random act of kindness," intended only
to give a little boost where needed and to
remind people how important it is to be
aware of and responsive to other people's

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
If the Good Neighbor Award members have their way, "David" will be knock-
ing on some deserving LaBelle resident's door once a month and providing
a helping handiman hand. The program will be conducted anonymously -
recipients will not know who sent this "Handiman with a Hammer.

U-Save sold;

business as

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Since 1923 the U-Save (originally B&B Super-
market) has been a focal point for folks around
LaBelle. The Bevers family established grocery
stores throughout the area.
The U-Save chain has been sold, including
the stores in Clewiston, Belle Glade, Okeecho-
bee, Tampa and Fort Myers. The Moore Haven
store, which encompasses a gas station, was
not included the original sale. However, accord-
ing to David Portlock, representative for buyer
Oquab Abuoqab, discussions on acquiring the
Moore Haven location continued several weeks
after the original sale and should be finalized in
a few days.

City budget

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle City Commissioners held a public
budget workshop August 31. Staff is still trying
to plug in hard numbers in several categories.
New on the job, Finance Director Ron Zimmerly
told the board that, with ad valorum numbers
within five percent of last year, the outlook is not
quite so grim for the city. Last year, he said the
city collected $1.39 million in ad valorum taxes;
this year that figure should be $1.32 million.
He said the local option tax numbers are up 6
percent, but utilities taxes are flat. Licenses and
permit numbers are lower.
The city budget will take a big hit from inter-

Pack 9 now recruiting boys to join in Cub Scout excitement

Pack 9 of LaBelle, FL, will be holding re-
cruitment nights over the next two weeks.
Thursday, September 9, we will be recruit-
ing at Upthegrove Elementary School from
6pm-7:30pm. Tuesday, September 14, we
will be recruiting at LaBelle Elementary
School from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday Septem-
ber 16th we will be recruiting at Country
Oaks Elementary School from 6-7:30 p.m.
Not only are we recruiting Cub Scouts, we
are also recruiting parents to help run this
year's program. If you need more informa-
tion about the Cub Scouting Program please
contact Steven Nisbet Jr. at 863-885-1537.
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America
has helped younger boys through the Cub
Scouting program. It is a year-round family

program designed for boys who are in the
first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and
10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and orga-
nizations work together to achieve the pur-
poses of Cub Scouting. The ten purposes of
Cub Scouting are:
1. Character Development, 2. Spiritual
Growth, 3. Good Citizenship, 4. Sportsman-
ship and Fitness, 5. Family Understanding,
6. Respectful Relationships, 7. Personal
Achievement, 8. Friendly Service, 9. Fun and
Adventure, 10.Preparation for Boy Scout.
Recognition is important to young boys.
The Cub Scout advancement plan provides
fun for the boys, gives them a sense of per-
sonal achievement as they earn badges,
and strengthens family understanding as

governmental figures, which are down 46
The city budget for 2009-10 was $6.6
million (the city took in an additional $14.9
million in Enterprise water/sewer monies).
However, Mr. Zimmerly told the board he
feels the previous budget was somewhat
"inflated" and this is a more realistic figure.
The mayor said he believes the city
should carry reserve funding adequate to
cover one year in ad valorum taxes. Previ-
ously, he said the city was holding too much
in reserve.
With no plans for large purchases, he felt
there is no need to hold so much in reserve.
The only big project in the works is the new
water treatment plant, which is already pro-
vided for through $15 million in USDA grant/
Gas tax money and road money will still
be available for projects as necessary, Mayor
Puletti pointed out.
The board agreed that the city will be
limited in what it will be able to do this year.
Mr. Zimmerly felt the budget will be fine if
the city is careful and holds the line on over-
time as much as possible.
Mayor Puletti told the board that county
staff now seems to be suggesting that the
city provide water for developments outside
its boundaries. That is an exact reverse from
previous discussions. Several years ago, as it
anticipated unprecedented growth, the city

was grappling with the particulars of what
kind and size of new waterplant would
make sense.
The city discussed providing water ser-
vice to customers some distance outside its
boundaries. At that time, the county was op-
posed to LaBelle extending its service area
outside the city limits.
Recalling how the city took the heat for
thinking about "overextending" its service
area, Mayor Puletti commented, "We're not
going back there."
Current economic circumstances have
forced the city to downsize its original plan
for the new plant and to rethink its entire
budget to tighten its belt. At this point, the
City of LaBelle is opposed to anything that
would cost LaBelle money. The board felt
that providing some water service outside of
LaBelle may make sense if the development
is close in and the county pays for lines to
be installed. However, everything hinges on
whether or not it makes fiscal sense for the
Mayor Puletti wondered if the county
knows it can establish Municipal Service
Benefits Units (special taxing districts in
which residents basically tax themselves for
services) as well as the city can.
The board will have another workshop
tonight, Thursday, Sept. 9, beginning at 6
p.m. with the final public workshop begin-
ning at 6 p.m. Sept. 20.

adult family members work with boys on
advancement projects.
Tiger Cub The Tiger Cub program is for
boys entering first grade (or age 7) boys and
their adult partners.
There are five Tiger Cub achievement ar-
eas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult
partner, completes 15 requirements within
these areas to earn the Tiger Cub Badge.
These requirements consist of an exciting
series of indoor and outdoor activities just
right for a boy in the first grade.
Wolf The Wolf program is for boys who
have completed first grade (or are age 8).
To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass
twelve achievements involving simple phys-
ical and mental skills.
Bear The Bear rank is for boys who
have completed second grade (or are age
9). There are 24 Bear achievements in four
categories. The Cub Scout must complete
12 of these to earn the Bear badge. These
requirements are somewhat more difficult

The U-Save stores will be adding more
ethnic departments to compliment local
needs, Mr. Portlock said, with each store re-

customers should look for extra displays of

selling more items in bulk or quantity and
taking advantage of savings which they will
pass on to the customer.
Customers will see the same faces be-
hind the counters and check out stands and

Webelos This program is for boys who
have completed third grade (or are age 10).
A boy may begin working on the Webelos
badge as soon as he joins a Webelos den.
This is the first step in his transition from
the Webelos den to the Boy Scout troop.
As he completes the requirements found
in the Webelos Scout
Book, he will work on ac-
tivity badges, attend meet-
ings led by adults, and
become familiar with the

CLEARWATER, Fla. Driver fatigue leads
to more than 1,500 fatalities each year in the
United States. That fact is more than a statis-
tic to Ronshay Dugans' family. It is a reality.
A driver who fell asleep at the wheel of a ce-
ment truck led to the death of the eight-year-
old girl two years ago in Tallahassee, Fla. To
bring attention to the public safety issue at a
critical time when millions of motorists are
about to embark upon long weekend road
trips for the Labor Day holiday, the Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
and the Department of Transportation co-
hosted an event recently in conjunction with
the hospitals of Morton Plant Mease, law en-
forcement representatives and safety advo-
cates to announce Florida's Drowsy Driving
Prevention Week on Sept. 5- 1.
State Rep. Alan Williams, District 8, spon-
sored the legislation that created the Ron-
shay Dugans Act during the 2010 Legislative
Session. The Act designates the first week
of September as Drowsy Driving Prevention

"Ronshay's family shares the story of
their tragic loss so that others don't have to
experience the same," said Representative
Williams, "Drowsy driving decreases aware-
ness, slows reaction time and impairs judg-
ment. The catastrophic losses that can occur

The National Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration estimates that each year driver
fatigue results in 100,000 police-reported
crashes, 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and
$12.5 billion in monetary losses. However,
the full impact that sleepy drivers have is
unknown because crashes caused by driver
fatigue are under-reported as they often rely
on a driver to self-report.
So whose eyelids are most at-risk of drop-
ping anchor while at the wheel? According
to NHTSA, drivers in the following three
groups pose the highest risk of falling asleep

sembly. Sgt. B Brown was arresting officer.
Gilbert Martinez, 25, was arrested August

31 and charged with possession of a weapon
or ammunition by a convicted felon, posses-
sion of cocaine, possession of a controlled
substance without a prescription and smug-
gling contraband into a detention facility. G.

Young people (ages 16 to 29), espe-
cially males.
Shift workers whose sleep is disrupted
by working at night or working long or ir-
regular hours.
People with untreated sleep apnea syn-
drome and narcolepsy.
Regardless of a driver's vocation, age,
sex, health condition or other characteris-
tics, any driver can become overconfident
and fall victim to drowsy driving. Measures
that drivers can take to stay alert behind the
steering wheel are:
Catch some Z's. A good night's sleep
goes a long way to prevent drowsy driving.
Bring a buddy. By having another driver
on board, you have someone to share the
driving responsibilities and help keep one
another alert.
Take a break. Stopping to get out and
stretch your legs every few hours or even
to catch a quick nap will help you recharge
your battery.
Drive sober. Alcohol and driving never
mix. Also, heed prescription medication
labels and any warnings that say they may
make you drowsy.
Fatigue and drowsiness can impair your
ability to safely operate a motor vehicle,
which not only puts you and your passen-
gers in danger, but also it places everyone
else on the road with you at-risk. Florida
launches its campaign You Snooze, You
Lose. Don't Drive Drowsy today to encour-
age drivers to take proactive steps to avoid
driving drowsy. For more information about
drowsy driving and the campaign, visit www.

What every parent should know about sports injuries

by Pat Dobbins
It's back to school and back to school
means that kids may participate in sports.
There are social and physical benefits for
your child when they participate in sports
however, it could also have a downside
which is the risk of sports-related injuries.
According to a report by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over
1.5 million children under 15 are treated an-
nually in emergency departments for sports-
related injuries.
Sports injuries can range from minor
scrapes and bruises to sprains, strains and
Stress fractures and tendinitis can occur
from overuse of muscles and tendons. Some
of these injuries don't always show up on
x rays, but they do cause pain and discom-
Other sports-related injuries can include
heat-related illnesses such as dehydration,
heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Thank You

The American Legion Riders, Post 130,
Kiwanis and the American Legion Auxil-
iary Unit 130 sent two local girls to Girls
These local organizations from our
hometown of LaBelle donated money
towards sending two LHS girls to the UF
campus in Tallahassee for more than a
week of intense, but fun, lessons in Flori-
da government.
This is a great opportunity for the girls
selected and it is an honor to be chosen.
The Girls State program is run by the
American Legion Auxiliary and is a valu-
able lesson in how our state government
is run.
Each year the girls come back with a
new respect for the way things are done
in Florida. We send the girls, all expenses
paid which takes a lot of money.
We are thankful for our local organiza-
tions who help us with this endeavor.
The LHS participants this year were
Laura Reed and Alexia Arellano. Thank
you so much for your help.

Heat-related injuries are a particular
problem for children because they sweat
less than adults and require a higher core
body temperature to trigger sweating.
Injury prevention is the key:
Enroll your child in organized sports
through schools, community clubs, and rec-
reation areas that are properly maintained.
Coaches should be trained in first aid and
CPR, and should have a plan for responding
to emergencies.
Coaches should be well trained to pre-
vent, recognize, and provide immediate care
for athletic injuries and should enforce rules
on equipment use.
Make sure your child has, and con-
sistently uses, proper gear for a particular
sport. This may reduce the chances of being
Warm-ups and cool-downs should be
part of your child's routine before and after
sporting activities.
Warm-up exercises, such as stretching
can help minimize the chance of muscle
strain during sports.
Warm-up exercises make the body's tis-
sues warmer and more flexible. Cool down
exercises loosen muscles that have tight-
ened during exercise.
Make sure your child has access to wa-
ter or a sports drink while playing. Encour-
age them to drink frequently and stay prop-
erly hydrated.
Remember to include sunscreen and a
hat (when possible) to reduce the chance of
Treatment for sports-related injuries will
vary by injury.
But if your child suffers a sprain, strain, or

is easy to remember: "R.I.C.E" but please

Good food has always been a gathering
point for family and friends. It just makes ev-
erything better.
Nuttin' Fancy Cafe is just what the name
implies and a lot more. It's not fancy, but it's
all delicious.

Winn Weathington are serving up some
great deli sandwiches and homemade
fixin's. Mom Judy Batton holds tight to her --'" ;
secret recipes and works her magic on the
potato salad and soups.
The Nuttin' Fancy Cafe opened for busi-
ness Monday, August 23, and has been go-
ing strong ever since. Winn said their carry
out business was so overwhelming in just '.
the first few days that they already had to re-
vamp their system to accommodate it. ".
Deli sandwiches are at the center of the -
menu. All Boar's Head meats and cheeses,
sliced thin and piled with vegetables and
shredded lettuce, make lunch there a treat.

New services offered at Lehigh

Regional Medical Center

Lehigh Regional Medical Center is offer-
ing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT),
Bariatric and Advanced Laparoscopic Sur-
geries to the residents of Hendry, Lee and
Collier Counties.
HBOT, a new service of The Wound Care
Institute, aids in the course of therapy for pa-
tients that present with problem wounds. It
allows the healthcare professional to provide
treatment in a pressurized environment, so
the patient can breathe 100 percent oxygen.
This raises the tissue oxygen levels 10 to 13
times their normal level, therefore healing
the wound at a faster rate. The Wound Care
Center currently has a healing rate of about
99 percent of their patients.
Treatments using the Hyperbaric Cham-
ber typically last two hours, five days a week.
"There is an air hose inside the chamber that
a patient can adjust so they are comfortable,
along with a television above the chamber
so they have something to watch while re-
ceiving the treatment," said Wil Killmer,
board certified Hyperbaric Technologist.
Lehigh Regional Medical Center Surgery
Department currently has two providers, Dr.
Martin Barrios and Dr. Peter Denk, who spe-
cialize in minimally invasive surgeries (Sin-
gle Port Surgery) and in bariatric surgery, to
include the gastric band (LAP-BAND) and
the incisionless weight-loss surgeries ROSE
and POSE.
Dr. Barrios and Dr. Denk are advanced
minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeons
with an extensive experience in Bariatric
and Single Port Surgeries.
Single Port Surgery, Dr. Barrios explains,
is an advanced minimally invasive approach
in which the surgeon operates almost exclu-
sively through a single entry point, typically
the patients' belly button. All of the instru-
ments necessary for the surgery are used
through this single incision. According to
Dr. Barrios, the person experiences less pain
since it is a considerably small incision and
there are fewer complications, so patients

can return faster to full activity. On top of
that, there's a cosmetic advantage since the
scar is minimal, making it much more aes-
thetically pleasing.
LAP-BAND, ROSE and POSE are relatively
new weight-loss procedures that are also
minimally invasive and with faster recovery
Lap-Band has been performed at Lehigh
Regional Medical Center since October 2009.
This weight loss approach is used for weight
loss and weight maintenance in severely
obese people, reducing the amount of food
one's stomach can hold.
"ROSE procedure is designed for patients
gaining weight after a previous gastric by-
pass," Dr. Dens says. "It uses a special en-
doscope through the mouth to reshape the
pouch and stoma of patients so they can
continue to lose weight properly. The proce-
dure is done as an out-patient and patients
typically have no abdominal pain because
there are no incisions."
POSE is designed to help obese patients
as a first-time, non-invasive surgical proce-
dure for weight loss. "It has shown great ear-
ly promise so far in studies with weight-loss
similar or better to laparoscopic weight-loss
procedures," adds Dr. Denk. With the addi-
tion of Dr. Denk, Lehigh Regional Medical
Center is one of only two centers in the US
currently offering POSE.
"We are very pleased to bring new
state-of-the-art technology and top quality
surgeons to our patients," stated Lehigh Re-
gional Medical Center CEO, Chris Rakunas.
"These new improved methodologies allow
us to treat the patients looking at them as a
whole, caring for them in a holistic way," he

The Cowboy offense drew praise from
Coach Hal Bennett after last Friday night's
tussle with Cardinal
Mooney. Although
it ended with the
Cowboys down,

Cowboys are ca-
pable of putting points on the board, Coach
Bennett said.
Coaches rotated quarterbacks Taylor
Jordan and Derek Bass in the second half, a
strategy Coach Bennett said he believes they
will continue. It helped keep Mooney play-
ers off balance, he said.
Taylor passed for 109 yards, had 44 yards
rushing, threw one TD and ran for two TDs
against Mooney.
Another bright spot in the Cowboys'
night was senior wide receiver Will Thomas,
who made four catches for 127 yards receiv-
ing and caught one TD pass.

At the tender age of two, little Kaylah,
was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, also
known as Juvenile diabetes. There is no
cure for type 1 diabetes and for a child it
can be life altering.
There is no vacation or time off for dia-
betes and Kaylah must be monitored 24
hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Kaylah, is now 7 years old and every day
she must endure the pain of this destruc-
tive disease.
Her body can no longer produce the
insulin that she needs for her to have a nor-
mal life. She endures an average of three
shots of insulin a day, and an average of
eight finger pokes a day just to monitor her
blood glucose levels.
Kaylah has been going through this for
five years. That's over 20,000 needle pokes!
Imagine how many pokes that will be by
the time Kaylah turns 18. Type 1 Juvenile
diabetes is a life long disease and we must
find a cure. Insulin injections are not the

Glades County residents receive help at GCHD

Fort Myers, Fla. (August 10, 2010) -The
Glades County Health Department, Harry
Chapin Food Bank, The Salvation Army,
United Way and other human service agen-
cies participated in a food distribution and
health and human services event on Fri-
day, July 30, at the Glades County Health
Department in Moore Haven. Similar "Free
Food Fridays" have been held in Alva, Cape
Coral, Pine Island, Fort Myers Beach, Harlem
Heights and Lehigh Acres.
Harry Chapin Food Bank and The Salva-
tion Army provided food to those in need.
The Glades County Health Department

United Way 211 provided assistance with the
Food Stamp Program and information and
referrals to human service agencies for ad-
ditional assistance.
158 families and a total of 605 persons
from the Glades area were assisted. In ad-
dition to the need for food, the top requests
for help from those attending were medical
and employment services.
Cliff Smith, President of the United Way

of Lee, Hendry and Glades said, "This area
has been greatly affected by the current eco-
nomic climate. We are pleased to have mo-
bilized this coalition of service providers to
reach these residents in need.
Arlene Bettencourt, United Way of Hen-
dry and Glades Manager said, "People have
told me how much they appreciate the food
and agency information. One person said
'Dear God do we ever need this!' Another
said 'We are blessed.' One man even came
here in his motorized wheelchair."
The local network of thirty-four United
Way partner agencies and programs serve
the citizens of Hendry and Glades Counties.
A few of the agencies include: The Salvation
Army, the Children's Advocacy Center, Child
Care of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families
and many others. This network serves a di-
verse range of needs nurturing children and
youth, strengthening families, meeting criti-
cal needs such as helping the elderly and dis-
abled live independently, and empowering
communities by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods. The network of

United Way agencies helped over 21,000
people in Hendry and Glades Counties last
In addition to raising funds for human
service organizations in our community, the
United Way promotes partnerships and col-

laborations among agencies, helping them
to work together focusing on issues and so-
lutions that continue to improve lives. The
United Way of Hendry and Glades office is
located in the LaBelle United Way House,
117 Fort Thompson Avenue, LaBelle.

Fairies, pixies
Could it be? Are there fairies in LaBelle? Brennah McVey took this photo at
an undisclosed location in LaBelle. According to Wikipedia, a fairy ring is a
naturally occurring ring or arc of mushrooms. The rings may grow to over 33
ft. in diameter, and they become stable over time as the fungus grows and
seeks food underground. If these manifestations are visible a fairy fungus
mycelium is likely present in the ring or arc underneath. Fairy rings also
occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways
into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. A fairy ring ap-
pears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without a trace in
less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he
may be able to capture it. No word on whether Brennah captured an elf.
