by Juan LopezIndependent Newspapers On September 17, members of the Florida House and Senate listened to comments and concerns from the lake community in regard to redistricting plans. Senator Don Gaetz (R) and Rep. Denis Baxley (R) chaired the early morning session at the Hendry County Health Department auditorium. A crowd slowly trickled in as the meeting began. A number of maps with proposed redraws of the districts lined a wall. As of that morning, 51 complete and partial redraws were submitted, with more were promised. The purpose for the redistricting is to equalize as much as possible district populations so everyone has a fair chance to vote and candidates have a fair chance when running. Florida’s population numbers have risen, increasing the number of representatives the state has in U.S. House from 25 to 27. How those two seats will be distributed and who will vote for them is another topic of the hearings. Representatives heard from leaders and activists from as far as Highlands County on a wide range of concerns. A common vein shared by all speakers called for the counties of Highlands, Glades, Hendry and other lakearea communities to stay together. Ashley Tripp, of the Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance, proposed that the district be redrawn to include all the communities that surround Lake Okeechobee into one district. In her words, “It’s about the commonalties that these communities share that need to be considered,” she said. “Commonality” was the catch-phrase for the entire meeting as city of cials from Okeechobee, the mayor of LaBelle Paul Pauletti, Hendry County Commissioner Janet Taylor, Glades County Commissioner Donna Storter-Long, Clewiston Utilities Director Kevin McCarthy and others agreed that the center area of Florida shares the same values and beliefs. Those values wouldn’t be understood by the coastal and metropolitan areas, they said. Robert Rease, of the Glades Area Ministerial Association, summed it up best that morning, “When everything is redrawn, we ask that this area has own voice and one vote,” he said. “The common interests of this region are best kept together.” Three speakers from the Charlotte County League of Women Voters protested that the timeline for the process of redistricting was too slow. They said candidates would have little to no time to le their declaration to run because the state would approve the districts some time before June 8, the candidate deadline. They said that it was far too little time and unfair to any challenger BUY A 2011 F150 4X4 LARIAT SUPER CREW, GET UP TO $7500 OFF MSRP, AND PAY NO DEALER FEE.stk # 11t194 MSRP $49,414 Dealer Discount $4500 Ford Retail Customer Cash $2000 Ford Credit Retail Bonus Cash* $1000 = $41914*With approved credit through Ford Credit.

Thursday, September 8, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 36 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Taxpayers are looking hard a t their TRIM notices and their wallets, these days. The basic information for all taxing districts can be found on th e TRIM notices, which were sent ou t several weeks ago. It includes th e current 2010-11 rates and tentativ e rates for 2011-12. Hendry County Board of Count y Commissioners are considering increasing their millage rate to 7.2894 mills. The current rate is 6.5 mills. The Hendry County Hospital Authority is also looking at increasing its millage from the current 2.9 mills to 3.901 mills. The current rate includes 2.47 mills in operating expenses and .42 in debt service. The proposed 3.901 millage rat e would include 3.261 mills for operating costs and .64 mills for debt. If the hospital authority raises its millage to 3.9 mills, it will still remain within the one-mill increas e limit approved in the special election. HRMC CEO Lynn Beasley reminds everyone that in a special election in 2010 voters approved a plan that allows the hospital to repay debt service for the new emergency room in Clewiston and th e Convenient Care Center in LaBell e with up to one additional mill in Hospital looks at millage increase Independent News/ Juan Antonio LopezFlorida Senator Joe Negron (R) reassured those in attendance that their concerns had been heard and would be thoroughly considered when the committees begin redistricting. newszap.comFree SpeechFree AdsSee Page 4 for information about how to contact the newspaper Community shares redistricting ideas by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Ten years ago this week the w orld changed and all Americans changed with it. What have Hendry Countians taken from the brazen terrorist attacks on this country on Sept. 11, 2001? On September 11, 2001, Hendry County had a new Emergency Management Director, Hahn McClure. A ccording to the September 12, 2001, issue of the Caloosa Belle, all local public safety agencies were on “heightened awareness.” Local folks were looking for tangible ways to help and to cope with their sense of loss. A regular blood drive that happened to be scheduled for that w eek provided a way to do that. Over 100 participants crammed to A merican Legion to give blood. There were too many to be accommodated that day, so another date was scheduled for later in the month. Kara Nobles was a 17-year-old LaBelle High School student at the time and went to give blood.

2 Caloosa Belle September 8, 2011and her classmates had watched the horror unfold on the television screen at school and said “it took a while for everything to sink in.” She feared that her generation would be the one called on to military service, if it came to that and told the Caloosa Belle that w e cannot control others but “I feel like we can control what we do. I just can’t sit and do nothing.” Steve Worley was Sheriff of Hendry County when the Twin Towers came down, the Pentagon was attacked and heroic passengers prevented United Airlines Flight 93 from succeeding against its target, probably the Capitol or the White House. He was having breakfast at Flora & Ella’s Restaurant, when he was called in to the Sheriff’s Of ce. He said he knew something very unusual was happening when he walked in and all his staff was crowded around the TV. He remembers watching as the second plane hit the South Tower. He knew then that extremists were responsible for the attacks. In the next few days, he said Florida Department of Law Enforcement asked him to locate all businesses in Hendry County owned by foreign nationals, especially Middle Easterners. He was also to collect information about businesses that incurred extra risk from large amounts of fuel or explosives. This would include sugar packaged for shipping. The list was provided to FDLE. Mr. Worley said he sent a personal letter to local foreigners, asking them to let him know if they knew or heard anything about possible threats or if they received any threats to their business or family. He said the only problem he ever heard about was from a store in Port LaBelle w here foreign nationals were working, making in ammatory comments. He sent a deputy to settle things down and that was the end of it. Also in the following weeks of the attacks, two of his neighbors were arrested as they returned from Mexico to Texas. Authorities questioned their papers and they were held several weeks before being released. The former sheriff remembers the feelings of concern and anger people shared, They felt let down by their government and w ere afraid more attacks were coming. He also remembers that Americans soon started to come together, “rally ‘round the ag.” In that respect, he said it was a good point for Americans because it inspired us all to unite behind the ag and the President. In another incident shortly after the attacks, Mr. Worley was called to Clewiston about 2 a.m. Deputies had arrested two men from Tajikistan in Clewiston. They had left a book in the library with bank accounts and addresses linked to the Russian Ma a. One man had a check for $1 million. Both were in the US on student visas, but were obviously not students. They had come directly from Miami to Clewiston. “These were serious bad guys,” he said. A n FBI agent was there too, but Customs would not come to pick them up. So, Mr. Worley called Customs and told them, “I want them out of my county!” The answer was still no, they would not pick them up. So, Mr. Worley politely told them he would contact the local state representative and together they would start to call everyone in Washington, DC they could. It was the middle of the night but he promised them, “I will push some buttons!” Customs agents arrived in several hours. After interviewing them, the agents agreed that these were indeed very “bad guys” and took them directly to a federal magistrate. Local law enforcement changed as Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce became part of a statewide task force to share information and, for the rst time, local law enforcement was allowed to take part in Immigration and Customs Enforcement. These days, Mr. Worley said, people don’t take things for granted any more. They are more aware of surroundings; more aware of the Middle East just pay more attention as a whole, he said. The county did a lot of soul searching for an operations plan. Now Director of Public Safety, Randy Bengston was EMS director on September 11, 2001. He said he was with his second in command, Donna Aiken, when he was told. Like the rest of America, he was glued to the TV at the of ce. He remembers not being too concerned when the rst plane hit. After all, during WWII a B25 accidentally hit the Empire State Building. But when the second plane hit, the whole thing became “surreal.” The next day all the members of a re ghter class were dumbfounded, especially when other re ghters were on screen. Nobody could stay away from the TV. “Afterwards, I just remember seeing a lot more ags. I put some on my vehicle and kept one up at home for a long time,” he said. Little by little information came in about pilots having trained at Belle Glade and Immokalee. As time went on people became more vigilant, more concerned about Middle Easterners. They started to look at other people differently. Then Homeland Security was initiated and Hendry County became part of District 6. Randy recalls hearing statistics: before September 11 employers were most concerned about employee theft. Afterward, terrorism was at the top of their fears. Now, it’s switching back. Peple forget. But he says he worries more about those in emergency services now. “It’s changed my life. Every day I tell my family I love them. I never leave the house mad. Every day is special. Things happen so rapidly.” He added that he’s more aware of prejudice and how quickly it can rear up. He also feels travel restrictions have become way too restrictive and that political correctness is out of hand. The Caloosa Belle also interview Viet Nam veteran John Davis, who was one of those who gave blood after September 11. He served with the 101st Airborne. He told the Caloosa Belle he was angry about the attacks. “Why should we put up with this? We fought and died to get what we have here.” Like so many Americans, he was also concerned that his son might have to take up arms in this new ght. That fear, as we all know, has come to fruition, with the US ghting two wars in the Middle East. Some local lives were touched directl y by those terrorist attacks. Sgt. Maj. Larry Strickland USA, son-in-la w of longtime LaBelle resident Johnny Doub, died in the Pentagon, just weeks from retirement after serving in the Army for 30 years. His wife Debra Louise Townsend Strickland was still serving as a Sgt. Major at the time. Marine Staff Sgt. Thomas Millican, son of LaBelle residents Jeanine and Pastor Ben Millican New Testament Baptist Church, was a food specialist, chef for the Secretar y of Defense at the Pentagon. He was working just one or two corridors away from where the airliner crashed into the building. It took nine hours before the Millicans knew he was all right. Billy Mehaffey returned from Ground Zero tired and sick at heart from a stint searching for bodies with the US Search and Rescue of Florida. He arrived there Sept. 17, one of two communication specialists bumped to rescue specialist on site, working 12-hour shifts. With so many others, he sifted through pulverized concrete, steel rebar and girders at the World Trade Center ruins. Returning, he was very distressed and could onl y describe the surrealism of the scene as his most vivid memory. On September 11, LaBelle will pause to remember, along with all Americans, what was lost that day as well as what has been regenerated from the ashes that covered New York City that day. A renewed pride in being Americans. RecalledContinued From Page 1

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 3 Caloosa Belle September 8, 2011the district’s tax bill. Taxpayers allowed the district to use ad valorem taxes to repay the debt. Mr. Beasley said a few concerns have been raised about the plan to increase the millage rate, but put forth several reasons for the proposed increase. First, he said, since 2007 property values have declined some 40 percent so general revenue is down by over $3 million per year. A t the same time costs have increased. Also, people have lost jobs and insurance, while charity cases/bad debts alw ays an issue in this area are rising. He said these debts are up $5.5 million; that is $13 million for 2011. That de cit for 2012 is projected to be $14 million. The hospital authority’s LaBelle public hearing on its budget is set for Monday, Sept. 12, 5:30 p.m. at the Convenient Care Center. According to Mr. Beasley, the hospital authority did not increase its millage last year, resulting in the expected loss for this year. He added that the authority’s millage came down from 3.1 in 2007 to 2.9 in 2011. With the county’s gross taxable value down some 40 percent, insurance coverage down and demand for charity services up, he said the increase in millage is “absolutely necessary.” The average home in Hendry County is valued at $66,000. Based on an increase of one mill, that equals a $66 increase for the average homeowner to support indigent care. Hendry Regional Medical Center is a public hospital in a special district established by the Legislature. Emergency cases cannot be turned away. By federal and state law, any emergency must be stabilized rst before ability to pay can even be discussed, Mr. Beasly said.Construction projectConstruction on the LaBelle Convenient Care addition continues. Mr. Beasley said he is excited that the roof on the new addition is now complete. The new facility is to be open in October. Renovation on the existing section is set to begin Sept. 28, with a completion date in November. Part of the old building will be closed for these renovations, with some services moving to the new building. The area for specialty care will be temporarily closed. Renovation of the rehab area is alread y complete. In addition, CT and MRI services will expand along with lab services in LaBelle. Cardiology will be available in LaBelle with Dr. Esther Levin starting off at the Convenient Care Center one day every other week, then moving to one day a week as demand dictates. Services at the Convenient Care Center include general surgery. In November services will expand to include an ear, nose and throat specialist.

They proposed nalizing redistricting by January 2012. Sen. Gaetz recommended that they speak with one of his advisors regarding an updated timeline. Hendry County Commissioner Karson Turner commented at the end of the meeting that he was happy that many people w ere heard by the representatives. “It was very productive and I appreciate everyone that could come out to this meeting and have their opinions and concerns v oiced to those who are willing to listen,” the commissioner said. Florida Senator Joe Negron, who chaired the remainder of the session after Sen. Gaetz had to leave, was very pleased that people made it to the meeting and strongly voiced their concerns. “I took more than 50 pages worth of notes from this meeting,” he said. “I have heard a lot of concern regarding Hendry County could be split when the districts are redrawn and staying part of the Central Florida area.” He added that he will take all these considerations with him into the committees where the districts will be redrawn. He hoped that the process will be done by J anuary 2012 when the legislature returns to session. “I know that this area is the real Florida,” he said. “I will do all I can to make sure that this area is represented as it deserves to be.”

by Les Morgan Do you remember where you were when y ou rst heard the news we were under attack on September 11, 2001? It is one of those days that are etched into the minds of all A mericans who were old enough to comprehend w hat was happening. For me, 9/11 is like the day J ohn Kennedy was shot. I remember exactly where I was. I was on the playground at school. I was in rst grade. Do you remember how A mericans gathered to pray on the days following 9/11? It did not matter what denomination, or background or even if someone was not a "church person." What mattered was we were calling out to God for help, comfort, peace and wisdom. Do you remember how Billy Graham rose to the occasion once again in the National Cathedral? While there were other clergymen on the platform, all eyes and ears were on this man who had served our nation so well and with such integrity for decades. Things have changed, however. This Sunday will mark the 10th anniversary of that God-awful day. And, amazingly, the mayor of New York is not permitting any prayer to be offered on the public platform. Nor will he permit the reading of Holy Scripture on that day from the same. In fact, no one will be allowed to do any religious service at all beyond the reading of poems. Perhaps the most stunning of all people in New York City are nding this acceptable. The very city where most of the lives lost that day is collectively gathering to remember the fallen but keeping God at bay. It is intolerable to beseech God Almighty as before, but it is politically incorrect to speak against a Mosque being requested to be built virtually next door to where the Twin Towers stood. This is why we need to pray for America again. We have lost our foundation and our inner fortitude. Louis H. Evans said, "Man is never so tall as when he kneels before God-never so great as when he humbles himself before God. And the man who kneels to God can stand up to anything". In a similar tone, Phillip Brooks stated, "Prayer is not conquering God's reluctance, but taking hold of God's willingness." And Philip Melanchthon, the great assist to Martin Luther during the reformation remarked, "The great tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer." Praying for America must begin with an understanding of where her freedom comes from. Exodus 33:13 "Now if I have indeed found favor in Your sight, please teach me Your ways, and I will know You and nd favor in Your sight. Now consider that this nation is Your people." Even a cursory review of America's history will clearly af rm her freedom comes from the Lord. Her founding documents are laced with Biblical quotes and references. Praying for America must begin with the recognition that there are enemies that will destroy her and sin is an enemy that will destroy America. Proverbs 14:34 states, "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people." Founder of the Methodist church, John Wesley, boldly preached, "God does nothing but in answer to prayer." So we must pray for our America. Praying for America must begin with a total commitment of ourselves to certain things: 1. Matthew 6:9-13 "Therefore, you should pray like this: Our Father in heaven, Your name be honored as holy. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. (For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.") 2. The Will of God being done in our own lives. Galatians 5:13 "For you are called to freedom, brothers; only don't use this freedom as an opportunity for the esh, but serve one another through love." 1 Timothy 2:1-4 "First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." A clergyman from New York, during a call on President Lincoln at the White House said: "I have not come to ask any favors of you, Mr. President; I have only come to say that the loyal people of the North are sustaining you and will continue to do so. We are giving you all that we have, the lives of our sons as well as our con dence and our prayers. You must know that no boy's father or mother ever kneels in prayer these days without asking God to give you strength and wisdom." His eyes brimming with tears, Mr. Lincoln replied: "But for those prayers, I should have faltered and perhaps failed long ago. Tell every father and mother you know to keep on praying, and I will keep on ghting, for I know God is on our side." As the clergyman started to leave the room, Mr. Lincoln held him by the hands and said: "I suppose I may consider this as sort 4 Caloosa Belle September 8, 2011Serving LaBelle Since 1922To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

It’s time to pray for America again Using ‘other people’s money’This letter is in objection to the proposed tax increase to pay for' the west county recreation addition. To begin, I do not know who authorized such project, certainly not I. In fact, I am quite weary of being taxed to provide others a free ride. I am resentful of the mone y that I am able to scrape together being spent on the level of government that we alread y have. In a recession, we ought to cut spending, not increase it. But more importantly than my individual cost, I philosophically oppose it. A man who may or may not ever use such facilities has no moral obligation to subsidize a famil y that uses it that never sees a tax bill. One would hope, in a local government, not to see the all-out communism rampant in the federal' government. I wish I was aware of the project before its conception. It never ought to have seen ground breaking. We ought to look at the boondoggle that is Cape Coral government for that. There you have a city that made decisions from an elitist leadership position to massively increase city government projects and services. They are in an extremely poor scal position now that "Other People's Money" (OPM) has dried up. And now the fewer populace that does have money are being targeted to pay an ever-increasing bill for those who cannot'. However our case is strategically, if not nancially, worse than Cape Coral. Cape Coral is the victim of poor foresight by their leaders-they began these projects in an economic boom and never expected the free dollars to run out. Hendr y County is acting less wise than that; it wants to begin this new phase at an extreme low, when money is already tight, and the OPM tap is not gushing as it once was. In closing, as far as I am aware western Hendry County already has a number o f public parks. In fact, they are not fully utilized now. To my knowledge, LaBelle does not even have a church softball league, while we are not lacking softball elds. It's best left to the market to decide the need for new facilities, certainly not an elite few at the head of the city and county government to impose it, without the funds to back it. This is bad precedent, to simply add a new colLetter to the Editor September 6, 2011 My family and I would like to thank eve ryone for his or her outpouring of support d uring the recent lost of our home.

Documentary at Edison On Sunday, September 11, 2011, an A merican ag should be displayed outside e very home, apartment, of ce, and store in t he United States. Every individual should m ake it their duty to display an American ag on this tenth anniversary of one our c ountry’s worst tragedies to honor those w ho lost their lives on 9/11, their families, f riends and loved ones who continue to e ndure the pain, and those who today are ghting at home and abroad to preserve our c herished freedoms. In the days, weeks and months following 9 /11, our country was bathed in American ags as citizens mourned the incredible losse s and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against t errorism. Sadly, those ags have all but disa ppeared. Our patriotism pulled us through s ome tough times and it shouldn’t take ano ther attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our A merican ag is the fabric of our country a nd together we can prevail over terrorism o f all kinds. (1) Take a moment to think back to how y ou felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments g uide you. (2) Fly an American ag of any size on 9 /11. Honestly, Americans should y the ag y ear-round, but if you don’t, then at least m ake it a priority on this day. Thank you for your participation. God B less You and God Bless America. Get your ag ready

"Out in our country," replied Lincoln, "when a parson makes a pastoral call, it was always the custom for the folks to ask him to lead in prayer, and I should like to ask you to pray with me today.

In one split second every person in our nation became one. As we stopped and watched or listened to the events of that September morning unfold, we saw these everyday people the remen, police and EMS personal go into the buildings and never come out. Why? They knew the danger. Why did they go in. Because that’s what they do, and they do it sel essly. They never thought twice. They knew that their friends, neighbors and complete strangers needed them and they were there for them. As the days have now turned into years we will never forget. Join us Saturday night, September 10, at The Hendry County Motorsports Park as we pay tribute to those who gave there lives sel essly on 9/11/2001.

Dr. Drew Kreegel will offer complimentary skin cancer screenings on September 15, and October 6 and 20, at the Kreegel Aesthetic Surgery Center, 16410 Health Park Drive, Suite 200 in Fort Myers. The outdoor lifestyle that brings people to the Sunshine State also means greater exposure to the sun –the primary cause of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common form o f cancer in the United States, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all cancers diagnosed. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 2-million cases of non-melanom a skin cancer are found each year. In 2010, nearly 70,000 people were diagnosed with Melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer. As with all cancers, early detection is the key to successful treatment. “We know that all skin cancers are highl y curable if detected early,” Dr. Kreegel said. “The ve-year survival rate for a patient diagnosed with melanoma is 91 percent. If the cancer is detected while still in a localized stage, that rate jumps to 98 percent,” Kreegel added. “We want to ensure that we are catching the disease in its earliest stages.” To see if you are at risk or for more information about scheduling an appointment for a screening, please call (239) 343-9777.

The area of a count is not a circle, but the boundaries of a county. The idea is to have a contiguous interlocking set of non-overlapping counts across North A merica. Volunteers will be using various modes of travel including cars, boats and bicycles or w ill be on foot during their search for birds. The following teams, who will be meeting at 7 a.m., need additional counters, compilers and photographers: Lake Okeechobee, LaBelle, STA5, Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest, Lakeport Area and South Hendry (833/835). Contact Margaret England for copy of the report form or to volunteer to help a team or count from your home for an hour or more on September 17. Most of the teams will be surveying wetland areas where they will identify birds by sight or sound. Reports of Owls, Woodpeckers and Scrub-Jays found in other habitats are needed in order to get a more accurate snapshot of the birds in inland Florida. During the 2010 NAMC teams did not observe Florida Scrub-Jays. The Florida Scrub-Jay is identi ed as a legally protected Threatened Species by the United State Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It is Florida's only endemic bird species (occurring nowhere else). They prefer living in Florida's scrub oak and scrubby Flatwoods habitat with nutrient-poor soil w here trees are 3-10 feet tall. Each family w ill maintain a permanent territory ranging from ve to 50 acres, but the average range is about 25 acres. This large songbird has a blue gray head, w ings and tail with a pale gray-brown back and underparts. Juveniles who are less than about ve months old will have a dusky brown head and neck, but the rest of the body will be like the adult. It often makes a harsh and scratch call with the female making a dry rattling sound. They eat a variety of acorns, seeds, peanuts, insects, tree frogs, turtles, snakes, lizards and young mice. Occasionally they have been observed robbing other birds of their eggs or nestlings. Acorns from a variety of oaks are buried by the Scrub Jays in the fall to be eaten in the winter or spring. They are one of the few cooperative breeding birds in North America with families ranging in size from two to eight birds. The young will remain in their parent's habitat for several years where they help rear the young, act as sentries who watch for predators and defend the territory against other Florida Scrub-Jay groups. If you would like to volunteer for the September 17 NAMC or join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for the October 15 STA5 bird trip, send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5birding@embarqmail.com with your name and contact information including an emergency cell number for the trip day, the date you want to go, and the number in your party. You may also leave this information at (863) 674-0695 or (863) 517-0202. Bring water, snacks, and lunch. For a schedule of STA5 trips through December 2012 visit the HGAS website at: www. hendrygladesaudubon.org Bird Count September 17 CenturyLink is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to offer a $100,000 "Double Your Impact" grant to fund classroom projects in public schools in our service areas. Any public school teacher within the CenturyLink service areas can go online to DonorsChoose.org to request support for classroom materials and projects. Any project request up to $500 submitted by a teacher at a public school located within a CenturyLink area is eligible. CenturyLink's "Double Your Impact" Grant provides half the cost of a project when the rst half is raised through donors. As an example, after donors contribute $250 toward a $500 project, CenturyLink will fund the remaining balance of the project. The company will contribute $100,000 total toward eligible projects. Teachers should visit www.DonorsChoose.org to submit their project requests. For the best chance to receive funding, project requests should be submitted by September 12, 2011.

In addition, supporting K-12 education is one of CenturyLink's primary philanthropic focus areas. CenturyLink and Donorschoose partner for students Save yourself a hassle. Make sure you place your horticultural waste properly at roadside for disposal. When code enforcement sees an illegal horticultural waste pile, they rst talk to the residents to get compliance. However, a $140 citation can be written for noncompliance. The case goes to county court and the resident could end up with a $500 ne. This can be contested. The rst approach is public outreach. Here's how to do it: Branches, leaves and grass clippings must be placed at roadside in cans or bags. Make sure to cut branches down to no more than 4' long and 4" in diameter. Bundles, bags and other containers shall not exceed 40 pounds. Horticultural pick up is on Wednesdays only do not set it out with your regular garbage. Remember, you can always compost or dispose of your yard waste in a regulated burn, if you prefer. Throw yard waste away properly
