Mayor Puletti commented that applying impact fees on new development would have a chilling effect on business at this critical economic time. The board asked that the moratorium be continued at 100 percent for another year, beginning in January. The county is seeking input from both cities before making its decision.Tobacco productsStudents from Clewiston High School made a presentation to the board in support of a resolution discouraging local businesses from selling candy- avored tobacco products. They told the commissioners that tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death and disability in the US and pointed out that candy avored tobacco products are targeted directly at minors. The commission unanimously approved the resolution. One Clewiston tobacco shop owner spoke against the resolution, saying it would be detrimental to his business and others. He said he is very careful about not selling tobacco products to minors or allowing them in his shop. Mayor Paul Puletti explained that the resolution is not intended to stop anyone from Impact fees discussedSee Snow — Page 2 See Impact — Page 2 Relay — Page 2

Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events and 18 hours in length. Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and ght back. Celebrate The Survivors Lap Relay starts w ith a Survivors Lap an inspirational time w hen survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the v ictories we've achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are creating a world w ith more birthdays like those of each indiv idual on the track. A Caretakers Lap follows the Survivors Lap. Remember The Luminaria Ceremony After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags lled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. Fight Back Fight Back Through Fundraising Last, there is a chance to ght back against cancer through fundraising. In addition to what the fundraising teams do before the Relay, there are endless fundraising opportunities available onsite. From food, face painters, crafts and more, Relay teams will have plenty of ways for participants and visitors to support the ght against cancer. Relay For Life of LaBelle will be held on March 31 and April 1 at LaBelle High School's track. No matter where you are, there's a place for you at Relay and you can make a difference today by signing up to start your own team or by simply making a donation. Thanks to Relay participants, we are creating a world with more birthdays a world w here cancer can't claim another year of anyone's life.

The board passed the resolution 5-0.Landscaping ordinanceA new landscaping ordinance is proving to be more dif cult than originally expected, with more unanswered questions popping up at the November meeting. Staff will continue to wrestle with exactly how rules should be applied to landowners and the board will take up the question again next month. The mayor explained that the board wants to "get it right" before the ordinance is passed. Besides improving the aesthetic appearance of the city and promoting preservation of natural resources, the ordinance will establish a Tree Board to oversee landscaping matters and make recommendations.In other businessA new ordinance designating the quality and responsibilities of bidders was read for the rst time. It will come up for approval next month. It is intended to establish procedures and a protest process for bids. Finance Director Ron Zimmerly reported that the old A frame on Bridge Street is being leased to United Way, Salvation Army and several county of ces. He told the board that the 176-acre park on the north side of the Caloosahatchee River is not eligible for a South Florida Water Management District recreational trail grant. SFWMD would require the city to have a 99year site control lease in order to be eligible. The city has a 25-year lease on the property, however other grant sources may be a pp roached. on their Christmas wishes. Watch for games and a bounce house in v arious locations throughout the park. Santa is hoping you'll understand, but even his wallet's a bit thin this year, so there w ill be a small charge for the shing booth and for the bounce house $1 for three tickets. But the snow pile is still free! Kids, don't foreget to bring your jacket and gloves so you can enjoy this time honored Christmas treat! Santa could still use a few elves to help reimburse Mother Nature for the snow that gives LaBelle kids so much pleasre. Call the chamber at 675-0125 if you'd like to help out.

Sheriff’s Of ce Annual Toy Drive by Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News Two Muse men were charged with dealing in stolen property and operating a chop shop and held on $50,000 bond at the Glades County Jail after an undercover operation inv olving Glades and Hendry County Deputies November 13. Clayton Wilson, 27, and Ralph Lyons, 33, w ere arrested at a location on Tom Coker Road in Muse after deputies claimed they found parts from two stolen vehicles on the property. The arrest report from Detective Michael Pepitone stated the owners of a stolen vehicle in Hendry County noticed the parts from the 1985 Chevrolet were being sold on Craigslist and alerted law enforcement in Hendry County Later an undercover of cer from the Glades Sheriff went to the location and worked out a deal with Wilson to purchase the truck bed for $350, the report added. Detective Pepitone said a controlled phone call was made to the second suspect, Mr. Lyons, to inquire about a second vehicle that had been located on the property. He was told to come to the location because they needed his assistance in lifting the parts. When deputies checked the vehicle identi cation number they learned the pickup had been stolen in Lee County. An undercover of cer met with Mr. Lyons and was allegedly able to purchase several parts from the 1985 Chevrolet for $500. A lleged chop shop busted in Glades County Tallahassee, Fla. As part of the American Conservative Union's rst-ever rating for the Florida Legislature, State Representative Denise Grimsley was today honored by ACU Chairman Al Cardenas as a 2011 "Defender of Liberty" for championing issues important to conservatives. "I am grateful for the recognition the American Conservative Union has offered on behalf of a pro-family, smaller-government agenda for America," said Representative Grimsley. "We're doing our part in Florida to hold the line on taxes and government growth, and proud to have partners like ACU in the effort." "On behalf of the American Conservative Union, I am pleased to present our 2011 State Legislative Ratings for members of the Florida Legislature," said Chairman Cardenas. "Just as we hold every member of Congress accountable for his or her voting record on the most important issues facing our nation, the ACU will ensure voters in Florida have access to the latest information on their state representatives' conservative credentials." The "Defender of Liberty" award recognizes a perfect 100 percent score on ACU's ratings for the Florida State legislature. Additionally, it re ects outstanding support o f conservative principles on a wide range o f issues during the 2011 session. Founded in 1964, ACU represents the views of Americans who are concerned with economic growth through lower taxes and reduced government spending and the issues of liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values and national security. The ACU Ratings of Congress have been the de nitive guide for decades on where Members of Congress stand on conservative issues. Published by the ACUF, it provides the public and the news media a yearly score for each Member of the United States House and Senate. Grimsley recognized as a 2011 ‘Defender of Liberty’ Worldwide 33.3 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. Another 25 million have already died from this disease.

Independent is owned by a unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the community. Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in Independents mission of journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the communitys deliberation of public issues.We Pledgeƒ€To operate this newspaper as a public trust €To help our community become a better place to live and work, through our dedication to conscientious journalism. €To provide the information citizens need to make their own intelligent decisions about public issues. €To report the news with honesty, accuracy, purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compassion. €To use our opinion pages to facilitate community debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions. €To disclose our own conflicts of interest or potential conflicts to our readers. €To correct our errors and to give each correction the prominence it deserves. €To provide a right to reply to those we write about. €To treat people with courtesy, respect and compassion. by Les MorganHenry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.” Do you remember how you pledged to make 2011 a different year than any previous time? How is that commitment looking for you as 2011 is nearing the end? The reality is that you, like most others, have not done as well as you had wished. Perhaps discouragement has set in because you are feeling 2011 has been more of a defeat instead of what you hoped would be an amazing feat. Now is not the time to give up. To the contrary, may I suggest you turn what you may have as regrets and turn those disappointments into God’s appointments? There is a great sense of joy and accomplishment that comes when we nish something we start. Finishing is an important principle in the Bible. After seven days, “God nished the work of creation” (Gen 2:7). Jesus prayed, “Father, I have glori ed you on earth, by nishing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:4). From the cross, He shouted the victory, “It is nished.” God promises to nish the work of grace He started in us when we were born again (Phil 1:6). Paul completed the ministry God gave him and wrote from prison: “I have fought a good ght, I have nished the course, and I have kept the faith” (2 Tim 4:7). Fight through discouragement and setback, and resolve to nish what you have started. As great as our promises are to each other, how much greater are the promises of God. A promise is a declaration to do something; a legal contract; a binding oath; and the basis on which we expect something. The writer of Hebrews says, “We do not want you to become lazy (disinterested; slack; sluggish; literally “no push” in the original language of the New Testament) but to imitate (literally, to mimic) those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.” (Heb 6:12). Faith means to believe God’s promises and personalize them for your life. Faith is the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ with absolute trust in His wisdom, power and goodness. The word “faith” is used 31 times in the book of Hebrews. Faith pleases God, and He promises to reward us when we earnestl y seek Him. (Heb 11:6). The term “patience” comes from the word makro meaning long, a great distance and thumos meaning emotion, passion or anger. It is used of God’s attitude toward us in Romans 2:4 where we learn that God’s kindness leads us to repentance. Patience literally means “long-burning” like a slow burning fuse. When we go through setbacks, disappointment and delays to the promises o f God, we continue to trust him rather than lash out in anger, impatience or doubt. Patience is the attitude that never gives up. It stands rm to the end even in the face of dif culty. The word “promise” is used in Hebrews 14 times in only 13 verses. God’s word is lled with promises that we can possess for our lives through faith and patience. So, don’t stop short of the promise! “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Gal 6:9). This Thanksgiving, be grateful for your faith that has carried through this year and God’s patience because He is still working in you!Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located 200 years behind A Country Place restaurant on Highway 80. Be grateful for your faith and God’s patience Five Year Visionby Matt KindermannOne of the most popular questions employers like to ask during an interview is about where the candidate envisions themselves in 5 years. This question carries a heavy weight because the way a candidate answers it will say a lot about their character and motivations. The following paragraphs explain the key things to remember when answering the 5 Year question. As a candidate, always respond that you plan to still be working for the company. If the job that you’re interviewing for has promotion potential, state that you see yourself in the next highest position. However, don’t just say you see yourself to in the next highest position but, know what the title of that position is and use it in your response. If the job is a non-promotional position, like a mechanic or a waitress, state that in 5 years you will be an expert in your eld. Follow up by giving speci c examples such as “In 5 years I will have received my Master Mechanic certi cation,” or “In 5 years I’ll be an expert at wine pairings and French cuisine.” Make sure your desired expertise is one that will bene t the company because having a mechanic who desires to get a college degree in information technology is not bene cial to the shop. If you’re stuck on thinking of things to specialize in, or you’re future job is as a generalist such as a clerk or secretary, say that you are furthering your education and hope to graduate and be working for the company in a more professional position in 5 years. Be speci c by saying “I plan to graduate with a degree in Finance and continue contributing to this company’s success as a Finance Of cer.” Another great way to answer this question, without committing to going back to school, is to say that you see yourself being of greater value to the company by learning conversational Spanish to better assist customers, or something similar. When asked what kind of salary you expect to be receiving in 5 years, state simply “a fair market wage.” To see what the fair market wage is for your occupation or the occupations of others, visit www.careeronestop.org and click on Salary & Bene ts. Next, under Wage and Salaries, select By Location and choose your State and select Continue. Finally, nd and check the box next to the occupation closest to yours, select Continue and choose your nearest metropolitan area. Be aware, the Cape Coral/Ft Myers metropolitan area is not available for some occupations. However, those occupations that are listed return the wage rate reported directly from the U.S. Department of Labor and are very accurate. If you’re a business and need assistance in determining a salary range for your open jobs, contact an Employment Specialist nearest you by visiting www.sw works.org and click on Locations Matt Kindermann Dr. Les Morgan Pioneer Park repairsDear Commissioner Harris, We would like to thank you for your prompt action which resulted in the remediation of safety and maintenance issues at the Pioneer Plantation Park.

CENTRAL COUNTY WATER CONTROL DISTRICT 402234 CN 11/10,17,24/2011 Public Notice 14 Caloosa Belle November 24, 2011 READING A NEWSPAPER...makes you a more informed and interesting person. No wonder readers are more successful! Community Briefs Archery and ri e deer season is upon us and it's time to think about :tree safety." Come sunrise somewhere in the woods of this great nation, hunters will be seeking to bag a Boone & Crocket' trophy deer and many avid hunters will be perched on tree stands. You would think common sense would tell us we should use a full-body safety harness while hunting from a small metal stand attached to a tree. Unfortunately many thin k they have the ability to defy gravity and will never fall from their tree stand. In our neighboring state of Alabama during the 2010-2011 hunting season, ve Alabama hunters died in tree stand and elevated platform accidents. Four of those hunters were not wearing a full-body safety harness and the fth hunter had a safety harness, but it was not attached to a tree. Most tree stand-related deaths could be prevented if hunters would remember to always use a safety harness. Hunters should make sure they are attached to the tree from the time their feet leave the ground until they get back down. Many falls occur when hunters are climbing or descending a tree. Hunters should inspect their stand each time it is used to ensure the mounting straps and hardware are in good repair. Hopefull y the welds, bolts and screws have not rusted through. Hopefully your nylon straps have not dry rotted or Rocky the Flying Squirrel' hasn't been chewing on them. Having a tree stand break beneath you while you are 15-30 feet up a tree is a good way to spoil your hunt. If you are not wearing a full-body safety harness and attached to a tree, you could die when your tree stand falls. Even if you survive a fall from a tree stand, you could suffer serious injuries, including paralysis. If you hunt from a tree stand, don't thin k it's just the other hunter who will fall. Chances are sooner or later you will fall or have a close call. Remember, your full-body harness should be approved by the Tree Stand Manufacturers Association and replacement is recommended every ve years. Have a great season, I hope to see your name in the Boone & Crocket' record book. Hunting season is here –--It’s time to think of ‘tree safety’

According to Major Louden, more families are in need and 150 more Christmas dinners will be required to feed them this year than last year. This continues to be “a struggle for food,” he told the audience. In 2010 the Salvation Army gave out over 1,600 gifts and 329 food baskets. This year, even more are needed. The Red Kettle goal this year for is $600,000 for Lee, Hendry and Glades. Further evidence: In 2009 40 percent of applications for Salvation Army assistance were from new applicants; this year 60 percent are new.
