Thursday, July 14, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 28 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It will take about another two years but, if all goes well, LaBelle will again have a golf course, a much-prized amenity for residents and an important draw for all avid golfers. On July 6 members of the city commission and Hendry-LaBelle Rec Board met w ith Tom Fazio, renowned golf course designer and builder of Tom Fazio II Designs. County Commissioner and HendryLaBelle Rec Board member Darrell Harris, City Commissioner and Rec Board member Dave Lyons, City Commissioner Hilda Zimmerly and Mayor and Rec Board member Paul Puletti, along with Superintendent of Public Works Mike Boyle and Finance Director Ron Zimmerly got into an important preliminary discussion about the feasibility of a city-owned golf course. County Commissioner Tris Chapman and School Board member Pat Langford round out the rec board. They were not present for the meeting. Mr. Fazio toured the possible site at the LaBelle Sports Complex under construction on Forrey Road. He told the informal group he thought that frontage along SR 80 would provide “good window advertising.” He added that Forrey Road would present a very nice club house entrance area. At this time, the city is simply on a factnding mission, using Mr. Fazio’s expertise to feel its way to a reasonable decision on the practicality of such a project. Mr. Fazio was impressed with the area’s “phenominal” oaks and highly recommended saving as many as possible. He said he prefers to build courses with a more “natural” feel. Among his preliminary recommendations were to create lakes and use the ll to add interesting features to the course. The ll could be used for building contours and elevations that make a course both challenging and aesthetically pleasing. He recommended a large lake, but also said oaks should be disturbed only minimally to put it in. Typically, he told the group, he hires local workers when he builds a course, but said the contractor could be asked to hire locally even if he does not design the course himself. He told the group that they need a design before a price can be set for the work. He added that earth moving and tree location are the major costs for this type of project. The 220-acre site includes the 55-acre Sports Complex under construction, leaving about 170 acres for a golf course more than enough for a full sized 18-hole course. The county leases some 18 acres of the property, increasing the opportunities to qualify for grant moneys. The discussion to this point only concerns the city’s portion, but the plan is to approach the county on the project. The proposal will be going to the rec board for its approval. County Commissioner and Rec Board member Darrell Harris felt the county would go along with the plan since it would not have any nancial commitment. There are many factors that will affect the success of a golf course, including operational costs like mowing. Mr. Fazio told the group that he wants to make sure this is successful, telling them, “I won’t do it if I don’t think it will be.” He pointed out the need for a good business plan and made a rough overview of costs. He said he was very conservative, concentrating on the worst case scenario, City continues pursuit of golf course plan by Pat Dobbins Recently, a report was released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute which ranks the health of the people in Florida’s 67 counties. The report provides the same breakdown for all 50 states. The study provides a snapshot of how healthy people are considered in one county by comparing their overall health to people in other counties within their state. The 2010 County Health Rankings report looks at a number of factors that can in uence a person’s overall health, which can include health behaviors, quality of neighborhoods, access to physical and recreational activities, education, income, employment, teen births, crime-rates, smoking, drinking, premature death, air quality, access to healthy foods, community safety and many others. This report shows that a lot of factors can be correlated with one another. The rankings can be used by public-health, healthcare providers and community leaders to measure the health of their county to see ho w well they are doing and where improvements may be needed. The data used in the report includes surve y data calculated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, data from the U.S. Census, Hendry health rankings compare poorly newszap.comFree SpeechFree AdsSee Page 4 for information about how to contact the newspaper Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantTom Fazio II, in striped shirt, pours over maps of the city’s ef uent disposal site with LaBelle Superintendent of Public Works Mike Boyle, Finance Director Ron Zimmerly, County Commissioner and Rec Board member Darrell Harris, City Commissioner and Rec Board member Dave Lyons, City Commissioner Hilda Zimmerly and Mayor Paul Puletti.

In the 2011 County Health Rankings, Hendry and Glades Counties ranked low on overall health factors (Hendry-61 out of 67 and Glades-57 out of 67) Hendry and Glades counties also ranked low on overall health outcomes (Hendry-39 out of 67 and Glades-58 out of 67) The rankings also indicate that Hendry County is at-risk for poor health when it comes to social and economic factors that affect health, such as poverty rates and unemployment, where Hendry County ranked the worst (last place at 67th). Hendry County has the highest unemployment rate in the state. The overall state ranking shows that Collier County ranked the healthiest and Union County (a northern rural county) ranked the worst in the state. The rankings help us identify factors that are making it dif cult for residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle and understand how we compare to other counties in the state. With this knowledge, we can take steps to improve the health of our residents. The rankings give us information we can use to work with community leaders to take action so we can implement programs and policy changes that improve health. We know from the rankings that Hendr y and Glades counties need to do more to improve the overall health of our communities. Improvements are needed in the following areas: Access to healthcare, screenings for diabetes, reduction of tobacco use and increases in the number of sidewalks or recreational areas so people have more opportunities for physical activity. We haven’t even begun to see the impacts of the recession on our health outcome, but we are certainly experiencing them on the front lines of public health. Everyone in our community has a stake in being healthy. We need non-traditional partners, like the business community and organizations of faith, to take an active role. Working together, we can make Hendr y and Glades counties healthier places to live, learn, work and play.

Mr. Fazio said he started with the family business of building golf courses in the 1980s, then eventually moved out on his own. He said he is very “hands on” since he is the only employee in his company. He said he just nished a course in New J ersey for Donald Trump and has completed Florida courses in Vero Beach and Miami. He is presently building one in South Korea. In LaBelle, he recommended tapping into a family country club atmosphere that w ill include the adjacent Sports Complex, w hich will eventually include ball elds and other sports opportunities. Answering commissioner Hilda Zimmerly’s question on construction time, Mr. Fazio said generally he likes to time the opening of a new course for October to take advantage of seasonal visitors. It normally takes about two years to build one, with the longest time spent on securing permitting. Mr. Fazio said he would return later with a preliminary plan. One point in the city’s favor, Commissioner Dave Lyons said, is that the land is already there. Even so, Mr. Fazio noted that the numbers have to make sense for the total package for the venture to be a success. Finance Director Ron Zimmerly explained that the city is already working toward a uniform assessment rate for the course that will include commercial taxpayers. Currently all city residents pay $75 per y ear as a recreation assessment. The assessment is being considered because the city does not want to tie itself to golf course revenue to pay off any debt serv ice. He feels the city is very close to having a facility that will turn a pro t, and the city can always retire an assessment. The very preliminary and conservative cost estimate for the Sports Complex, which is bein g develo p ed b y the Rec Board and the county, is $2 million, with a golf course coming in at some $4 million. With the rec board stretched to the limit, Mr. Zimmerly said a successful golf course could generate money. Mayor Paul Puletti said they could apply pro ts from the course to the debt service and reiterated that the city can decrease the assessment if the course is pro table. Mr. Fazio recommended going for an undersized clubhouse with outbuildings like a pavilion to accommodate over ow and also designing it backwards to be most ef cient in design. Even though there are no wetland issues connected with this property, it was felt that securing a water permit from SWFWMD seen as the most dif cult part of the process will take at least six months. The city would like to see a course open in October 2013. Mayor Puletti said he’s spoken with Clewiston people who said they’d come to laBelle to play golf because, although they can play at Clewiston’s course, they cannot enjoy a meal there if they are not members. Some marketing would need to be done but, according to Mr. Fazio, “If you build a quality course, they’ll nd it.” Golf Continued From Page 1 Health Rankings Continued From Page 1 Your community directory is a click away! newszap.com Free Speech Free Ads

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 3 Caloosa Belle July 14, 2011 by Pat DobbinsWith temperatures rising as we roll into the summer, the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments would like to urge people to take steps to prevent heatrelated illnesses, such as heat stress, exhaustion and stroke. Warning signs of heat exhaustion can vary, but may include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomiting, fainting, moist and cool skin, fast and weak pulse and fast and shallow breathing. If you suspect heat exhaustion, cooling measures that may be effective can include drinking cool, non-alcoholic beverages as directed by a healthcare provider; resting in an airconditioned environment; and taking a cool shower, bath or sponge bath. If left untreated, heat exhaustion may progress to heat stroke, which occurs when the body becomes unable to control its temperature. Immediately seek medical attention if you have any of these symptoms: hot, dry skin or profuse sweating; throbbing headache; confusion/dizziness; hallucinations; chills; high body temperature; or slurred speech. Here are some tips to help prevent heatrelated illnesses: Drink plenty of uids that do not contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar. Don't wait until you are thirsty. Limit outside activity to morning and evening hours. Be cautious and stay out of the sun when exercising between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Children, seniors and persons with health problems should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors. Dress for summer by wearing lightweight, light-colored and loose- tting clothing to re ect heat and sun. Wear wide-brimmed hats to shade the sun. Protect your eyes and skin by wearing sunglasses and sunscreen. Use sunscreens with SPF 15 or higher that protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen should be applied every two to four hours, liberally enough that it forms a lm when initially applied. Don't leave children or pets in an unattended vehicle. The temperature can reach 135 degrees in less than ten minutes. For information regarding heat related illnesses, please visit http://emergency.cdc. gov/disasters/extremeheat/index.asp. Think about heat safety in the summertime Patricia Dobbins With students out of school and parents at work, the summer months provide a prime opportunity for teens to be unmonitored. These tips can help parents set the community-wide tone that underage drinking is unsafe, unhealthy and unacceptable. Set Summertime Rules: Make clear your rules regarding unsupervised time spent w ith friends, as well as your expectations surrounding drinking, smoking and other risky behaviors. Supervise: This can be challenging for parents of high school students; however, be physically present when you can. And w hen you can't, try asking a neighbor to randomly check in. Monitor: Know with whom and where y our child is at all times. Randomly call and text your teen to check in, and don't be afraid to check up on your child by calling another parent. Engage: Provide some structure to your teens summer by helping him/her nd a summer job or engaging him/her in a supervised activity (sports, camps, classes, etc.). Team Up: Get to know the parents of your teen's friends. Speak with them to ensure you have a uni ed and consistent nouse stance. Stay Involved: Show your teen you care by taking time to do something fun and interactive this summer (head to the movies, volunteer together, take a bike ride, etc.). Communicate: Regardless of season, it is always a good time to talk to your teen about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Open (or maintain) the lines of communication and be your child's trusted source of information.

I believed it was a special privilege to be the only child in my class who wore glasses. A s a seven year old, little did I know glasses were an impairment and not a adv antage. In college I purchased contacts. It felt like I no longer was required to wear a helmet! Now, at 54, I have to wear contacts and sometimes I need to also use “readers” or the print is fuzzy. Neither is preferred, but both are essential if I want my vision crisp and clear. While glasses and contacts are essential there is another visual impairment that, unfortunately, impacts far more people. It blocks one’s clear view of what is very observable by others. However, this limitation of sight is not detectable from an examination of one’s iris or pupil because it is an internal perception. The trouble is called, “Short-sightedness.” Have you ever met someone who was severely short-sighted? History is well-documented with statements by people who suffered from an inadequate vision towards the future. Here are some examples: “Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.” --Popular Mechanics, forecasting the march of science, 1949. “I think there is a world market for maybe ve computers.” --Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943. “But what ... is it good for?” --Engineer at the Advanced Computing Systems Division of IBM, 1968, commenting on the microchip. “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” --Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977. “This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” --Western Union internal memo, 1876. “The wireless music box has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular?” --David Sarnoff’s associates in response to his urgings for investment in the radio in the 1920s. “The concept is interesting and wellformed, but in order to earn better than a ‘C,’ the idea must be feasible.” --A Yale University management professor in response to Fred Smith’s paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service. (Smith went on to found Federal Express) “Who the heck wants to hear actors talk?” --H.M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927. “I’m just glad it’ll be Clark Gable who’s falling on his face and not Gary Cooper.” --Gary Cooper on his decision not to take the leading role in “Gone With The Wind.” “A cookie store is a bad idea. Besides, the market research reports say America likes crispy cookies, not soft and chewy cookies like you make.” --Response to Debbi Fields’ idea of starting Mrs. Fields’ Cookies. “We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.” --Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, 1962. “Heavier-than-air ying machines are impossible.” --Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895. “If I had thought about it, I wouldn’t have done the experiment. The literature was full of examples that said you can’t do this.” --Spencer Silver, on the work that led to the unique adhesives for 3-M “Post-It” Notepads. Are you known for being short-sighted? If so, let me encourage you to review a fe w passages from Scripture. “For with God nothing will be impossible” Lk 1:37. “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know” – Jer. 33:3. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Phil 4:13. Believe God for the best. He has no shortsightedness at all!Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist located 200 yards behind A Country Place restaurant in LaBelle on Highway 80. Take care, watch out for short-sightedness Older Workers Part 1by Matt KindermannThere are generally four groups of people in the workforce today: Matures are those people born prior to 1945; Baby Boomers are those born between 1946 and 1964; Gen-X’ers are those born between 1965 and 1980; and the Millenials are those born between 1981 and 2000. Right now in this moment in time, those who are age 55+ are the fastest growing age group in the workforce. Statistically, by 2014, Baby Boomers and Matures will make up fully one fth of the total workforce in the U.S. What does this mean for employers? Families today are reproducing at a lower average rate than the Matures did, and there are less young workers entering the labor market than there has ever been in the past. Labor is a resource, and educated, young labor is a scarce resource right now. As a ratio to new jobs being created, there are fewer entry-level workers leaving college, which means that companies that rely on fresh faces in the of ce every year now have to compete with other companies for a shrinking labor pool. On the other hand, more adults are going back to school in hopes that they can compete for these jobs. However, newly educated adults typically scoff at the entry level salaries that younger workers have traditionally accepted. The seemingly untapped labor resource in today’s labor market is the 55+ crowd. Before any employer’s reading this dismiss the idea that the 55+ group is not an option for employment, hear me out. I have heard many reasons for not hiring within this age group; they don’t know anything about computers, they always have doctor’s appointments, they don’t want to work the hours I need, they don’t present themselves well, their education is out of date, etc. Usually, these complaints are based on bias and can be countered with a sound knowledge of available employer training resources and a clearly communicated job requirements posting. In fact, sociologists have argued that Boomers are more suitable for sales, customer service and other types of communication intense careers because they grew up without modern technology and are more successful at face to face communication. With programs such as On-The-Job Training (OJT), Southwest Florida Works takes an otherwise quali ed candidate and sponsors a portion of their training. The end result of programs like OJT is that an employer gets a quali ed, trained employee that they want at a fraction of the cost of training. Chances are, you’re going to have to train a younger employee about using proper grammar and punctuation anyway (oops, another stereotype!); and really, if all you need is someone to do basic data entry and print reports, do they realistically need to be masters of Of ce Suite in order to apply? If you have an opening that requires certain hours, be sure to state that in your job description, it will cut down on the number of applications you receive and save time. If you’re exible, also state that in the job description, you’ll be surprised at the quality of applicants you get! Have you considered hiring two part-timers instead of one younger full-timer for that 50 hour a week job that pays $9 an hour? Splitting the work week might lead to less turnover and allow the part-timers to attend appointments during business hours, making your place of business less stressful and a better place to work. If you think that your business is already an exceptional employer, I encourage you to seek Employer of Choice accreditation at www.employerofchoice.com.

He w as content and at peace with his God and family as his soul shed these mortal bonds and ew to new heavenly heights. Marvin was born Sept. 2, 1941, in Toledo, Ohio. He leaves behind his loving wife, Faith Scripter, and son, Matthew Scripter. He had been a resident of Muse, Fla., since 1991. Marvin dreamed of being a pilot from the time he was a young child and made his dream a reality as a young man when he passed his private pilot’s examination. He ew across the U.S. in his early 20’s. While transporting a plane to Belize in the 1960’s, he was asked to scout for Mayan ruins in the jungles by treasure hunters and made an emergency landing on a beach and w as fed by a local tribe until he could be rescued. He transitioned to piloting helicopters and discovered he had a remarkable talent for precision ying. Crop-dusting jobs led him from Ohio to Minnesota, before he settled into a migrant lifestyle as his business served farmers in upstate NY and south Florida. He started his own crop-dusting business in the 1970’s that survived crop freezes, helicopter crashes, unreliable employees, and farmer debt defaults. His reputation for honesty, an uncompromising work ethic, customer service, and unmatched skill in applying agro-chemicals to corn, oranges, avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and potatoes made him highly respected by everyone he worked for. Marvin was an avid hunter and sherman. He hunted moose in Canada, bears in MI, hogs in FL, squirrels in OH, and deer in NY, but probably enjoyed the thrill of hunting with dogs for bears, hogs, and raccoons most of all. Fishing was a life-long passion that transitioned into a way to spend time with his son, Matthew. They shed for tarpon, snook, and seatrout in Pine Island Sound, bass and crappie in Lake Okeechobee, and even made a trip to SE Alaska to sh for salmon and halibut. Marvin even dared to explore abandoned coal mines in Nev ada and paraglide off a Peruvian mountainside. Marvin’s business and personal successes w ere rooted in his godly character. During his 20 years in LaBelle, he attended the LaBelle Church of God, but had been a faithful follower of Jesus Christ since childhood. His family appreciates his devotion to them and to his God immensely. He will be dearly missed. The viewing will be held at the LaBelle Church of God in LaBelle, on Friday July 15, 2011, from 5 to 8 p.m. Funeral services will be held at the same location on Saturday, July 16, 2011, at 10 a.m.Barbara Lois Fulp, 75LABELLE — Barbara Lois Fulp, 75, went home to her Lord on Tuesday, July 5, 2011, at 8:51 p.m., surrounded by the love of her family and friends. Barbara was only 11 days away from her 76th birthday, ending a remarkable life. Barbara was born in Winston-Salem, N.C., on July 16, 1935, to John and Lola Wright. She married Charles Allen Fulp of Winston-Salem, N.C., on March 13, 1955. Her husband had a career with the US Army and together they lived and traveled around the world. Barbara raised her family in Alexandria, Va., and upon her husbands retirement, they relocated to LaBelle, for the remainder of her life. Barbara loved reading and teaching God’s word. She taught many Bible classes and led numerous Bible studies. She loved playing the piano and listening to Christian music. She was a faithful member and volunteer in her church. Barbara was a prayer warrior and spent many hours praying for others. Barbara was a loving wife and dedicated mother to both of her sons and her daughter-in-law. She also had many other “sons” and “daughters” in the Lord. She was a true and loyal friend to many people around the world. Barbara is survived by her husband of 56 years, Charles Allen Fulp; her son, Keith Allen Fulp of Winston-Salem, N.C.; her son, Steven Charles Fulp and daughter-in-law Camilla Fulp of Lindale, Texas; her grandsons, Cameron David Fulp and Christian Steven Fulp of Lindale, Texas; her God-daughter, Elizabeth Witt Samess and husband Daniel Samess; her sister, Mary Mickey and husband Ted Mickey of Winston-Salem, N.C.; her brother-in-law, W. Melvin Fulp; and sister-in-law, Betty Fulp. A memorial service was held on July 11, 2011 at Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church in LaBelle. The family hosted a private grave-side service at Fort Denaud Cemetery in LaBelle. Online condolences can be made to her family at www.@akin-davis.com. In lieu of owers, donations may be made to “Fellowship of Prairie Creek” where her son Steven Fulp is the senior pastor.

Did you know that an alligator can run faster than a horse, well, at least for a short time, or that an alligator has three eye lids? Did you know that a gator grows one foot a year? How about the fact that the largest collection of alligators and crocodiles are housed at Gatorama in Palmdale? Young and old alike enjoyed the presentation at Barron Library by Patty Register from Gatorama. The children listened with anticipation as Miss Patty read Alley Lou, A Spooky Swamp Tale by C.E. Walz. The excitement mounted as she pulled her own Alley Lou, a three-year-old gator, out of its carrier. After a very informative lesson about gators, each child was given the opportunity to hold the gator. Almost all of the 89 children either held or at least touched it. The children were sent home with their very own gator, a hand puppet they made while waiting their turn to hold the real thing. A big thank you to Patty Register and Gatorama for such a fun event. Don’t forget to take the opportunity to hold a gator egg as it hatches, during the Alligator Egg Hatching Festival 2011, August 21st–31st, at Gatorama. The schedule for the rest of the summer program follows: July 19 – “Pan Traps” Study of Insects, University of Florida Research July 26 – Drug & Tobacco Prevention, Hendry County Health Dept. Aug. 2 – How Bees Make Honey, Curtis Honey Store Aug. 9 – Making Ice Cream and Other 4-H Projects, Kathy Singleton Aug. 16 – What I did This Summer, Brenda Goodwin & Local Writers Aug. 20 – Child ID Program, Free Masons Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss any of these fun events. Keep your kids reading and learning throughout the summer. 9 Caloosa Belle July 14, 2011 Submitted photo/ Karen HildebrandPatty Register of Gatorama gets a kick out of showing one of her reptile friends to a new two-legged one at Barron Library recently.

The chamber raf e concluded at the July 4 activities. Submitted photos/ Mary RisleyA Moment in HistoryLaBelle residents Corky and Mary Risley witnessed the nal launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis Friday, July 8. The couple left for Titusville at 4:30 a.m. The weather kept the launch touch and go through the morning. As they got closer to Titusville they took back roads to the Miracle Mall, paid $5. for parking and walked across the street to a vacant grassy lot on the river right across from the launch pad. Cloud cover was still pretty bad with a sprinkle now and then. People shared stories of past launches they had seen while checking out each other's cameras as they waited for any word on what was going on. At 11 a.m. those with radios turned them up full blast. Mary said she was amazed at how many people were there. Once the countdown began pride, tears, and fear bubbled up in the crowd as they helped with the countdown. The rumble of Atlantis as it arched into the clouds reminded them that they, along with thousands of people, were watching part of history. Community Briefs

Did you know that smoking damages your lungs? Every cigarette you smoke damages your breathing,according to the Centers for Disease Control.New research shows that poisons in tobacco smoke harm your body from the moment they enter your mouth.They attack the inner tissue on the way to your lungs. Your body is telling you not to smoke. The first time you smoke,your lungs may feel like they are burning. You may cough violently.That's your body telling you it's being poisoned. Tiny,brush-like cilia line your airways.They sweep out mucus and dirt so your lungs stay clear.Over time,smoking damages and destroys these brushes.You get "smokers' cough" because your body makes more mucus and the cilia can no longer clear your lungs. Other damage is happening,too. When you quit smoking,you will cough and wheeze less.You will cough up less mucus.After a few smoke-free months,you will breathe easier. Tobacco smoke scars your lungs. Your lungs should be elastic like a balloon.They expand when you breathe in and compress when you breathe out.The poisons in tobacco smoke inflame the delicate lining of your lungs.Years of smoking can damage your lungs so much that they no longer stretch and exchange air. Smoking causes lung disease. Smoking causes chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,or COPD. There is no cure.People with COPD slowly die from lack of air. COPD includes the diseases emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Emphysema causes the walls between the air sacs in your lungs to lose their ability to stretch and shrink back.The air sacs become weaker and wider.Air gets trapped in your lungs.You have trouble breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide.If you keep smoking,normal breathing may become harder as emphysema develops.With emphysema,lung tissue is destroyed,making it very hard to get enough oxygen. •Chronic bronchitis is the swelling of the lining of your bronchial tubes.When this happens,you have less air flow to and from your lungs.You cough up heavy mucus with chronic bronchitis. Pneumonia and respiratory problems are far more common in smokers. For people with asthma,even breathing someone else's smoke can trigger a severe attack.Your airways become inflamed and tight.It's hard to breathe. ….What it means to YOU If you quit smoking,you will breathe better.You will cough less than people who continue to smoke.You'll be surprised how much easier it is to be active.If you are ready to quit,we are ready to help.*Information taken from the U.S.Department of Health and Human Services.A Report of the Surgeon General: How Tobacco Smoke Causes Disease:What It Means to You.Cle wiston Where: Hendry Regional Medical Center 524 W Sagamore Ave Clewiston,FL 33440 Start Date: Tuesday,July 19,2011 Six Sessions Tuesdays 5:30 6:30 P.M.LaBelle Where:Hendry Regional Convenient Care Center450 South Main St LaBelle,FL 33935 Start Date: Wed.,July 20,2011 Six Sessions Wednesdays 5:30 6:30 P.M.Two Locations To Choose From.... 16 Caloosa Belle July 14, 2011
