The Florida Department of Education, Commissioner Eric Smith, Superintendent Rick Murphy along with the Hendry County School Board and its employees, would like to congratulate Nisbet Enterprises. Nisbet Enterprises was awarded the 2011 Hendry County Business Award at the 24th Annual Commissioner’s Business Recognition A wards Dinner in Tampa. Nisbet Enterprises includes two McDonald’s Restaurants in Hendry County one in LaBelle and Clewiston. Nisbet Enterprises is one of the District’s most involved and longserving business partners. The Nisbet Family has consistently reached out to our schools to provide support as well as encouragement. Involvement has included student awards, assistance with fund raisers, recognition of our teachers and support of our Teacher of The Year Program. Yearly they sponsor School-Nights fund raising for each of our schools. Teachers and staff work side-by-side with the McDonalds’ employees on these nights in a fun, familyoriented event which showcases Nisbet Enterprises support of the Hendry County School District. According to Superintendent of Schools Rick Murphy, business involvement in education has played a critical role in supporting education throughout Florida and Hendry Nisbet Enterprises earns business award LEASE A NEW 2011 F150 XLT SUPER CAB FOR ONLY $299 PER MONTH.*36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $3196 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

Last Friday morning, the other shoe fell. The store closed early Thursday night, just after 8 p.m. A sign in the door said simply that the store was closed for renov ations. Employees were told to come in Friday morning. Those who get standard paychecks would receive them; direct deposited paychecks would be in the employees’ accounts. The handful of employees who had remained on the job gathered in the parking lot in front of the store Friday morning, waiting for their checks and for any information on the future of the store. Their efforts were futile. They found the doors locked and perishables being removed from the shelves. No one got their money. Saturday morning, was the same no checks. By Monday, employees were still waiting. Assistant Manager Phillip Styles has been working at U-Save for ve years. He described the past several months at the store. Orders were not coming in, he said, or there were small deliveries. Regular dealers had discontinued doing business there. Out-ofdate merchandise remained on shelves. Deli orders were down, as were customers, over last year. One employee said the closing was “sad.” She said employees felt they were part of a team and had even been told, “Let’s work as a family.” “We tried to hang in,” she said. On a brief excursion to the parking lot to speak to one employee, the store manager said he wasn’t authorized to answer questions. In answer to the question who was, he simply mumbled, “Nobody.” Employees related stories of dif culty See U-Save — Page 2 See Award — Page 2 Submitted photo/ Rick MurphyPictured from left: Commissioner Eric Smith, Superintendent Rick Murphy, Amanda and Steve Nisbet Jr. representing the Nisbet Family and its employees.

U-Save employees were paid bi-weekly. One customer who showed up Friday morning as usual was 90-year-old Charles McDonough, who came by every morning for coffee and a donut. Another customer came to purchase Caribbean food. They both expressed their sadness at the closing of the store, but also at the loss of contact with U-Save employees. A third shopper, Carmen Murray, said she shopped there every day for 13 years. The people there made her laugh, she said. Over the years, customers said they had become friends with U-Save employees sentiments that echoed what the employees had already described. After six years with U-Save, another employee said she only missed one day, and often lled in for other workers when asked to. Her biggest complaint Friday morning was that, "Nobody will come up with a straight answer." A number of employees had been with U-Save for decades. One worked there for 20 years. Another had been employed at U-Save since 1969. She described many changes at the store in recent months including employees' hours being cut. Still, she said she would come back to work if she had the chance, as most of the workers in the parking lot said. One woman summed up the feelings of most of the employees. "All we're asking for is to get paid," she said, "and for them to be honest with us." Many employees described their dedication to the store and willingness to work with management over the past dif cult year, saying they'd come in early and stay late when asked. One worker even came back to work early from surgery. U-Save had been purchased last September by S&O Holdings, Oqab Abuoqab, president. At that time, management blithely stated it would remain "Business as usual" for the store that had served LaBelle for 87 years, at that time. The U-Save store in Clewiston also closed Monday morning. S&O also owns the Trading Post Plaza, Fiesta store on SR 29 and Bravo food stores in Fort Myers and Tampa. Calls to S&O were not returned. The last of the U-Save employees will all be going their own way. Phillip Styles, 23, had hoped to continue to work at U-Save, go to college to learn computer networking. Seeing the way things were going, he enlisted in the Navy and is waiting to head off to boot camp. "I feel bad," he said, "we were like family." Another employee will be working at a friend's restaurant, another will go back to driving a taxi. Several will be forced to go on unemployment. S&O leased the U-Save building from B&B Holdings, which opened the store as B&B Supermarket in 1923. A spokesman for B&B said the closing came very suddenly and they had no other information as to what they would do with the building. Monday U-Save's digital sign on the corner of SR 80 and Bridget was still advertising specials on chicken, even as shelves were being stripped of merchandise inside the store and employees waited for they paychecks and wrestled with what comes next for them.

We appreciate the continued support of the Nisbet Family and all of our business partners throughout Hendry County which inspires student success."

3 Caloosa Belle October 13, 2011 As Americans we enjoy many privileges and rights. We have the right to free speech, the right of free press, the right to worship at the church of our own choosing, the right to be free from illegal search and seizure and many others. However, along with these privileges and rights come responsibilities and obligations. One of those obligations is jury service. Jury trials have been in existence for many decades in our country. A citizen has the constitutional right to be tried by a jury of their peers and it is a right that the courts take very seriously. Imagine, if you will, that y ou or a loved one is attempting to exercise y our constitutional right to a trial and after anticipating your long-awaited day in court, y ou are told to come back another day because not enough jurors showed up to hold y our trial. Unfortunately, a vast majority of the citizens throughout this state and here in Hendry County don’t take their jury duty obligation very seriously. Recently in Hendry County the number of responsible citizens who honor their juror summons has fallen to below 5 percent. The number of jurors needed to respond in order to conduct a county court criminal trial is about 20. The number for a circuit court matter is approximately 30. With the current turnouts the clerk is forced to summons between 400 and 600 persons in order to have enough jurors to conduct one trial! The clerk currently sends out 2,000 summonses for each week that a court is holding trials. The postage alone is burdensome and tax dollars are wasted. We realize that jury duty can be burdensome, inconvenient, intimidating, timeconsuming, costly and sometimes boring. It can also be interesting, exciting, educational and stimulating. But the bottom line is: it is a responsibility shared by all Hendry County citizens. We know that, at times, there are legitimate reasons for missing your turn when called for jury duty. We recognize that a few individuals are not suitable for jury service because of, for example, medical issues. Sometimes legitimate con icts render jury service dif cult on the scheduled court dates. The court tries to accommodate those occasions by deferring individuals to a more convenient time but most folks are simply ignoring this important legal obligation. You might be interested to know that the vast majority of county court cases are completed in one day and most circuit court cases don’t last more than two–three days. The frustration level in the courts throughout the state is climbing. There are punishments available to the court under the law for failing to honor a jury summons. We hesitate to take those steps and would rather appeal to your sense of responsibility and obligation. Honoring your juror summons is simply the right thing to do. John E. Duryea, Circuit Judge James D. Sloan, County Judge Barbara S. Butler, Clerk of Court Jury duty, right and privilege Keep it cool!Each week Computer Corner will offer tips and tricks to help keep your computer healthy and working well. If you’ve got questions, please send them to computercorner@cprtools.net.Of all the things anyone can do to help maintain a computer’s health, keeping it cool should be at the top of the list. Computers, like all electronic devices, generate heat and they have mechanisms to allow this heat to be dispersed in order to keep the expensive components like the central processing unit (CPU) as cool as possible. Most systems have heat sinks with little heat dispersing ns like a car’s radiator to help get the heat away from the CPU. Some have fans mounted *on* the CPU heat sink. It is important to keep this particular component from overheating it could very well burn up if we don’t pay attention to the temperature. Most of us keep our desktop computers in places where the fans pull dust and dirt into the case. Dust and dirt can “cake” onto heat sinks and fans, causing excessive heat build-up and potentially expensive hardware failures. Be sure to keep your computer as physically clean as you can, inside and out. If you’re at all nervous about opening your computer case, don’t. Find a reputable technician and have them do it for you. Your computer health is worth it!

On the Job Trainingby Matt KindermannOne of the many employer services we offer is On the Job Training (OJT). OJT can be a valuable means to hire a new employee in terms of initial salary or starting wage. Essentially, we can pay up to 50 percent of the salary for a new hire while the employee is trained to a satisfactory level of pro ciency for the position. I'll illustrate the process by example in which ABC Inc. is a ctitious company looking to hire a new employee, and ctitious candidate Steve needs a job. ABC Inc. has an opening for a Warehouse Manager, which requires the candidate to be pro cient in QuickBooks. Steve really wants to work at ABC and is otherwise quali ed, but he doesn't have a clue about QuickBooks. ABC is open to the possibility of OJT and we introduce Steve to the Hiring Manager, who is impressed by Steve's other quali cations. A short and tailored contract is written in which ABC hires Steve for a period of up to six months. During that time, Steve works as the Warehouse Manager while he receives additional training from ABC on how to use QuickBooks, and Southwest Florida Works pays up to half of Steve's entire salary for a 40-hour work week. At the end of the contract period, ABC takes over 100 percent of Steve's salary and is employing a quali ed person that has received custom training by the company. To start an OJT, you must have a job opening listed on Employ Florida Marketplace (EFM), have a Federal Employee Identi cation Number, and be current on relevant taxes and licenses. Employee candidates can be referred by both the employer and the SWFL Works staff. OJT candidates will be pre-screened for WIA eligibility before they can be considered for OJT. However, all hiring decisions are ultimately made by the employer, so you'll not be pressured into accepting a candidate you don't want. The OJT contracts are individualized for each employer and employee so you'll have input for the expectations and outcome. OJT is open to most occupations, both hourly and salary positions, and can see increased paid salary percentages for small businesses. There is funding available for this program right now, so if you're considering hiring, call me to post your job on EFM. To initiate an OJT with one of your company's openings, call me at 863-6751412 or e-mail me at mkindermann@sw works.org. I will send you the information I need to post the job and when an OJT candidate is identi ed, I can arrange for a Certi ed Workforce Professional to meet you at your place of business to help you through the process. by Les MorganA few weeks ago, a good friend of mine and member of my church, Bob Eltzroth, read the following to a Bible Study class that I attend on Sunday morning. It was very well received by all who heard it. Knowing the World Series would be coming soon, I asked for a copy so that I could post it in my article in the Caloosa Belle. I trust you enjoy it as the members of our class and I did. I also hope your team wins so long as you are pulling for the Lord's team smile! Freddy and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game. The Lord's team was playing Satan's team. The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. They continued to watch as a batter named "Love" stepped up to the plate. Love swung at the rst pitch and hit a single, because "Love never fails." The next batter was named "Faith," who also got a single because Faith works with Love. The next batter up was named "Godly Wisdom." Satan wound up and threw the rst pitch. Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one! Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan throws. The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Freddy and told him He was now going to bring in His star player. Up to the plate stepped "Grace." Freddy said, "He sure doesn't look like much!" Satan's whole team relaxed when the y saw Grace. Thinking he has won the game, Satan wound up and red his rst pitch. To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen! But Satan was not worried; his center elder let very few get by. He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him in the head and sent him crashing on the ground; the roaring crowd went wild as the ball continued over the fence for a HOME RUN! The Lord's team won! The Lord then asked Freddy if he kne w why Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom could get on base but couldn't win the game. Freddy answered that he didn't know why. The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game, you would think you had done it yourself. Love, Faith and Godly Wisdom will get you one base, but only My grace can get you home! For by Grace are you saved, it is a gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast Ephesians 2:8-9. For the Lord is a sun and a shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly Psalm 84;11 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Philippians 4:13Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church located 200 yards behind A Country Place Restaurant on Highway 80 in LaBelle. He is con dent the Lord's team will win, hands down! The Lord’s baseball game Bring your baby to school?Apparently, there is a ten-year tradition at LaBelle High School called Bring Your Baby to School Day. During school hours, teen mothers are allowed to bring their infants, toddlers and strollers for a "Shower" the school puts on for them. This is supposed to take place during their rst period class, however, high schools students I spoke with claimed the babies didn't leave till after third period. Ditraction! Baby blankets are donated to the babies and other items. Cute, huh? No! The law requires that every student, pregnant or not, get an education. I'm all for educating these teen mothers and donating items, but why are we throwing them a party for the whole school to see? Why can't this party of donated items occur after school hours or on a Saturday? What kind of messages are we sending to the rest of our youth? The pressures of abstinence and pop culture are tough enough, our schools do not need to promote it. I spoke to several high school students who felt it wasn't fair. Their response, "What can we do about it?" I wonder how many of our school board members are aware and condone this practice.Thrift store disappointingI am a local and one of many who would like to know what happened to our thrift store. There doesn't seem to be a sense of organization or merchandise I want. It seems someone has lost interest. Speak Out Matthew Kindermann Les Morgan C a r e e r C o r n e r Career Corner FundraiserI, Angela Esquivel, and the Billy Hanes Family would like to thank the many businesses that donated and supported our fundraiser, and a big thanks to Patty at the Caloosa Belle, Steve and Steven Maldonado and Alexis Esquivel, Lisa Herrera and Sherri Hanes for their help in the serving of the food. The bene t was a great success and w e look forward to seeing many more of y ou at the upcoming bene t on October 14. Angela Esquivel Thank You

His Word Proclaimed is a ve-day event taking place the week of October 17-21, at Barron Park by the river bridge where believers in LaBelle gather together. Various persons take turns throughout the day reading the Word of God in 30-minute increments, beginning in Genesis all the w ay through the Bible to Revelation. This is done continuously from 5:30 a.m.-10 p.m. during the week. On Friday evening, around 7 p.m., everyone comes together for a special time of praise, worship and celebration, as the nal words of the Revelation are read, knowing that there are hundreds of others doing the same thing throughout the world. The spirit of this event is not just of reading, but of proclamation into the heavenlies declaring the truth of God's Word. Time is getting close. We are coordinating this event at Life Ministries Church, but several local churches are participating. You can sign up for one or more 3O-minute slots; for one particular day, some days or every day of the week. We will need your name and a telephone number, where we can reach and remind you of your turn to proclaim scripture. We will keep the master list, and will be recruiting readers to insure that there are no two persons assigned for the same 30-minute slot during the week. Please call the church at 863-675-8855 or visit us during the week from 9-12 in the mornings at 725 West Hwy. 80. Otherwise call and leave a message and we will call you back to schedule you in.

The coaching staff and evaluation teams for the events were comprised of college coaches, scouts and former MLB players including 13-year MLB veteran Luis Alicea and former All-Star Walt Weiss. The USSSA Varsity National Team will compete in the USSSA Gold Medal Games next summer. For additional information on ABR and the USSSA All-American Games, please visit www.amateurbaseballreport.com or call 708-675-1500. Garcia named to USSSA National Team by Jordan OdafferThe LaBelle Cowboys started off fast and nished furiously as they shut out the Grif ns and posted their highest point total of the season. The Cowboys scored on their rst drive when Tyler O’Ferrell connected with Devante Ray on a screen pass for 32 yards in the rst quarter. O’Ferrell then hooked up with Lenel Jones for the two-point conversion and an 8-0 lead. During the second quarter the Cowboys moved the ball up and down the eld, but fumbled away possession in Gateway territory twice. However, in a two minute span O’Ferrell connected with Jonathan Rodriguez for a TD, David Antunez kicked an extra point, Antunez then recovered an onside kick, and O’Ferrell connected with Rodriguez for another TD. The Cowboys scored their last two touchdowns in the fourth quarter as senior David Antunez ashed his big play potential on a long touchdown pass from O’Ferrell and after a bad punt snap when Antunez picked up the ball and ran around the left edge for a 50-yard touchdown. The offense appeared to gel as they are becoming more familiar with each other and with offensive coordinator Maurice McClain’s scheme. The passing attack was led by O’Ferrell’s four TD passes, but the ground game put an exclamation point on the evening as both Danny Robinson and Ellis Johnson rushed for more than a hundred yards. The offensive line did a better job with pass protection and the offense appeared to take steps in the right direction on Thursday night. Defensively the Cowboys played very aggressive and posted the rst shutout for LaBelle since November 11, 2007. Under the tutelage of defensive coordinator Kenneth Strong the Cowboy defense has grown by leaps and bounds this year. Friday night’s starting defense was as follows: David Andrade (JR), Caleb Rimes (SO), Victor Mendez (SO), Devante Ray (JR), Pablo Jaramillo (SR), Luis Hernandez (JR), Phillip Stansly (JR), Ellis Johnson (JR), Delindio Watson (SR), Lenel Jones (SR) and William Podubynskyj (JR). Also making a big contribution to the defense was Sophomore Danny Robinson.This week’s game:The Cowboys host district opponent Booker High School (Sarasota) at home this Friday. Kickoff is schedule for 7:30 p.m. and it promises to be an exciting game. The Cowboys and the Tornadoes both notched their rst district wins last week and are looking to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Tornadoes are led by their outstanding senior receiver Ricky Jones Jr. (4 TD’s in the last 2 games) and stellar junior running back Mike Jones. (286 yards rushing last week) The Tornado defense looks tough at times, but has been susceptible to the run in the last two games. In district play the Tornadoes have averaged scoring 29.5 points and given up 25.5 points. Make no mistake about it, this team is better than their record, They have played a very tough out of district schedule and were more than ready to start district play.

Electronic cigarettes:tobacco product or drug delivery device?Electronic cigarettes are products designed to deliver nicotine to a user in the form of a vapor.Typically,they are composed of a rechargeable, battery-operated heating element,a replaceable cartridge that may contain nicotine,and an atomizer that,when heated,converts the contents of the cartridge into a vapor.This vapor can then be inhaled by the user.These products are often made to look like such products as cigarettes,cigars,and pipes.They are also sometimes made to look like everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks,for people who wish to use the product without others noticing. Under the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (FSPTCA),products containing nicotine derived from tobacco but making no therapeutic claims must be regulated as "tobacco products". However,if such product claims to have therapeutic benefits,it must pass a "safe and effective" standard,used in drug approvals,and be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness. When the FDA conducted limited laboratory studies of certain samples, FDA found significant quality issues that indicate that quality control processes used to manufacture these products are substandard or non-existent.The FDA found that cartridges labeled as containing no nicotine contained nicotine and that three different electroniccigarette cartridges with the same label emitted a markedly different amount of nicotine with each puff.Experts have also raised concerns that the marketing of products such as e-cigarettes can increase nicotine addiction among young people and may lead kids to try other tobacco products.Visit FDA's Electronic Cigarettes webpage for additional information. So what resources are available to a person who is ready to quit tobacco use? There are seven FDA-approved tobacco cessation aids,including nicotine patches,nicotine gum,nicotine lozenges, nicotine inhaler,nicotine nasal spray,Varenicline,and Bupropion SR.While aids alone increase the success quit rate compared to using no aids,a combination of counseling and aids has proven more effective.For help quitting tobacco use,contact the tobacco cessation department at Hendry Regional Medical Center at 863-902-3019.You may also call 1800-QUIT-NOW from anywhere in the state of Florida or visit www.quitnow.net/forida.

Direct Repair Collision Center has been open in LaBelle for almost one year. At a time when many businesses are struggling, owner Jeff Campbell is booking in vehicles left and right. Direct Repair is one of the newer members of the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce and so Jeff hasn’t had too much time to get involved with the group, but he does feel being a chamber member is important. Jeff has spent some 40 years making battered vehicles look new again, but it isn’t just about body work for Jeff. It’s all about doing the job right and satisfying the customer. In addition to professional body work, Direct Repair Collision has added by three major insurance companies for their clients’ convenience. It is also a center for Hertz rental cars. Jeff joined the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce very quickly after opening his shop because, as he commented, he was anxious to become part of the community. “We don’t just want do business here,” he said. His goal is to be an active, supportive member of the community. He is happy to receive the chamber’s newsletter every month because it keeps him and his business apprised of what other businesses are doing in the community. As a body shop, Direct Repair does a lot of business with other businesses in LaBelle. He said he also appreciates the chamber’s educational efforts. Manager Karina Santana said that after an extremely slow August, business really picked up in September. Jeff has spent some 40 years making battered vehicles look new again and renovated the steel building at 300 Cowboy Way. For Jeff, it’s all about doing the job right and satisfying the customer. If the owner isn’t completely satis ed with the job he did, they should not hesitate to bring it back. His or her concerns will be addressed. “I strive to make the customer happy,” he said. In fact, his business was #1 in the Customer Service Index in 2005 and in 2004, he had a 98.88 percent satisfaction rate. The LaBelle Chamber of Commerce is proud to have strong business members like Direct Repair Collision Center that not onl y provide professional and ethical service, but are committed to building a better community.

It’s hard to know just how long the Curtis Honey Co. has been a part of the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce, but George P. Curtis came to LaBelle from North Carolina in 1954. He brought with him a love of the bee business, strong work ethic and an appreciation for community ties. Perhaps that’s w hy he was such a strong supporter of the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce. Renee Curtis Pratt is the fourth generation of her family in the bee business. She and her husband, Dwayne, raised their children in the business and now their grandchildren are becoming familiar with it, too. George’s father, Oscar, raised gladiolus owers in North Carolina, as well as his bees but George’s passion was decidedly on the bee side. As for Renee’s father, Harold, she simply says, “He just loved bees.” The Curtises were in the commercial queen bee breeding business until 1982. Before that they supplied queens to beekeepers all over the world, till diseases and pests rocked the bee industry. The Curtises lost 50 percent of their bees but managed to hold on and remain a vital part of LaBelle’s business community. The industry’s problems continue to the present day, as beekeepers deal with the phenomenon of colony collapse. The Curtis Honey Co. sells only locally grown honey. A lot of customers drive for many miles to purchase their homegrown honeys from the honey house, especially with recent information about its health bene ts including antioxidents and vitamins. Renee said that honey made from local owers often helps relieve certain allergies by supporting your immune system. She adds that their honey is “raw,” never “cooked.” Honey is also good for relieving arthritis because it helps the body get rid of toxins and it can be used on burns and cuts. Germs cannot live in honey, so it can help heal wounds. Building a strong family and business wasn’t enough for George. He became a member and a board member of the LaBelle chamber. According to Renee, he was always ready to support anything local and that has become a family tradition for the Curtis Honey Co. Maybe it was their Christian roots that inspired the strong support of their neighbors, but the concept ts right in with the chamber’s mission to help business thrive and create a better community. Renee believes that small businesses try to help out their neighbors more so than big corporations. “They’re just more generous,” she said, and she should know. Curtis Honey Co. continues to support many local community causes from the schools to athletics. The Curtis Honey Co. stands as an example of the type of solid hometown business that has helped LaBelle thrive. Part of that ethic is its longtime membership and support of the community through the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce.

Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSusan Mercedes has her eyes tested by Dr. Allison LeBlanc. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle A new eye doctor has opened up shop in LaBelle. Dr. Allison LeBlanc, Doctor of Optometry, has been taking care of patients’ eyes for ten years. She recently opened Spectacular Eyecare and is providing her professional services for the whole family. A Delaware native, she is a graduate of the University of Florida, and earned her OD degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Dr. LeBlanc said she was attracted to optometry at a very early age. She has worn glasses or contacts since she was ten years old and said her own optometrist made a strong impression on her. She knew when she was in high school that she wanted to be able to help people preserve their gift of sight. She said she enjoys helping people and interacting with the lives of different people. In fact, that’s the reason she came to LaBelle. Dr. Allison came here from LeHigh and previous to that worked in West Palm Beach. W orking in a place like LaBelle provides a nice change in her profession. She did not like working in what she calls “corporate” optometry, with a large scale “assembly line” mentality. She had a number of LaBelle patients in her LeHigh practice and they encouraged her to move her practice here. She said she doesn’t do this for the money, she wants to go where she’s needed. Practicing her profession rewards her with the ability to give people more con dence by seeing properly. In addition to standard eye exams, Dr. LeBlanc offers glaucoma screening Sarah Bond works with Dr. LeBlanc as a licensed optician. Her job is to edge lenses, t and sell frames and assist people with contact lens tting. She also orders the lenses and tints them in house, according to order. She said there is three-four day wait for glasses. Sarah is also glad to be in LaBelle. She said she has also been in her eld for about ten years and learned much of her pleasant of ce demeanor from working with previous bosses. Sarah said she also nds it exciting to help people with their eye care needs. Both women are anxious to introduce the LaBelle community to “Spectacular service at a spectacular price” which just happens to be their motto. Spectacular Eyecare is open Mondays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Tuesday through Friday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday by appointment only. They are located at 70 Yeomans Ave. Call 675-2015 or check them out at spectaculareyecare.com. 13 Caloosa Belle October 13, 2011 ‘Spectacular Eyecare’ has opened in town Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSarah Bond helps Susan Mercedes p ick out the p erfect p air of g lasses With a theme like Spanning Time, oat builders can let their imaginations take off for the 2012 Swamp Cabbage Festival parade.

Well now they have opened a new restaurant, the L a Margarita Tex-Mex, on Cowboy Way down the road from where they graduated high school. Our retired school group ate breakfast there last week. It was excellent. I had a bean and chorizo taco. When I eat beans just don’t get behind me... To take a soothing bath and keep a ring from forming throw a big handful of baking soda in the water. Brush your teeth with baking soda to remove coffee and tea stains, Works on your coffee cups too. Don’t throw away used dryer sheets. Use to dust with. When cold weather nally gets here keep a dryer sheet in your pocketbook for when static cling happens. Just rub it on your hair or clothes to stop it. Witches Brew
