That’s the message Gregg Gillman and the Hendry County Economic Developmen t Council want to get out. After just six months as executive director, Mr. Gillman has his feet good and we t and is priming his board to expand its scop e of service. “I’m excited by the leadership I see coming out of my board,” Mr. Gillman said.

University of Florida Cooperative Extension Director and Regional Vegetable Agent IV Gene McAvoy said the damage was spotty, due to “micro climates” throughout the area in which there were some very localized freezing temperatures. In fact, some areas in the western county saw subfreezing temperatures for six to eight hours, as low as 24-26 degrees. He said some corn and beans, as well as older tomatoes and peppers, were lost. Devil’s Garden saw no freezing temperatures at all. Pockets of sugar cane sustained damage and will have to be harvested quickly Citrus seems to have fared well as growers pumped water to protect the trees. Mr. McAvoy said there was some foliage damage on some trees, but it’s hard to say what the impact might be. More southern areas were spared a lot of crop damage. In fact, Mr. McAvoy said Immokalee was actually warmer than Palmdale, with about a six degree difference. Still, some Immokalee farmers lost older tomatoes and avoided additional damage by keeping their crops warm with running water. Some taller crops suffered frost damage as the warmth from the water did not reach the tops. Pasture grass turned brown from the frost, increasing feed costs for cattlemen. Depending on the length of time before it greens back up, it could mean the difference between pro t and loss from some operations. Freeze: No comparison to 2011 Submitted photo/ Gene McAvoyLast week’s spotty freeze caused some damage to area crops, but farmers were spared the destruction of 2011. At left: a tomato eld in Felda shows the effects of subfreezing temperatures. Right: Eggplant in Felda look pretty bedraggled after being subjected to freezing temperatures last week.

Arsenic and Old Lace on stage by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Motorists have certainly noticed Florida Department of Transportation signs on the east side of LaBelle announcing construction on the other side of the city limits. FDOT spokeswoman Debbie Tower said construction is a safety measure being added to two-lane roads throughout the state. Crews are adding audible-vibratory pavement markings to the sides of the road. The white lines on either edge of the road are bring restriped and small disks called "cookies" are being laid down which create a humming sound and cause a vibration for v ehicles that pass over them. Together they create an audible and vibratory warning that y our vehicle is straying too close to the edge of the road. Ms. Tower said work will be done at night and will cause traf c to be channeled onto one lane where crews are working. The project, which runs from Birchwood to CR 833 Lane, should be completed by the end of next week. The four-laning of SR 80 from Birchwood to Dalton Lane is expected to be bid out in early summer, with construction possibly beginning in the fall. That stretch of the highway is still being designed. Preliminary work has begun on the new interchange at US 27-SR 80 but nothing that would interfere with traf c for some time. That major project should be completed in 2013. Expect nighttime lane closings on SR 80 The LaBelle High School Reunion will be held March 10 at the Dallas Townsend Ag Building on Pratt Blvd. Anyone who attended LHS any time up through the 50s is welcome to come.

by Les MorganWelcome to 2012. As we are 12 days into this new year how are things looking for y ou? Are you more hopeful that 2012 will hold more assurance than you had in 2011? Most everyone likes to be positive and anticipate brighter days. An optimistic point of view serves to grant hope of overcoming obstacles and potential roadblocks. But let’s be honest, can we? Perhaps deep within you and me there are points w hen being positive is not an easy position to maintain. It’s as if we would like to enlist as a counselor to God because it seems He needs some “enlightening.” It is at points like these that trust and hope in God’s awareness seems to wane. Ever been there? Apparently, Samantha Reed has been. Below is a copy of a piece she put together. The honesty is genuine and her words seem to have been mined from our inner questions. Enjoy. Then Job replied to the Lord: ‘I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.’ ...My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.” Job 42:1-2, 5 Sometimes I don’t fully trust God has prepared good things. For me, for family, for friends, for others? This past year was riddled with home foreclosures, loss of businesses, empty cupboards and gas tanks for those I love. They’ve faced suicide attempts, drug overdoses, passing of loved ones. Family and friends alike have endured marital affairs, children sentenced to jail, a second year of unemployment, cars breaking down, churches falling apart and the list goes on. I’m not sure He can redeem the pain, recover what’s lost, heal all that’s broken. Can He truly t the pieces of this past year into a hopeful future? Right now, circumstances suggest otherwise. And if I rely on what circumstances currently imply, I’m apt to believe the answer is no, the Lord is not able. But circumstances tell tales that are prone to change in a moment. And the truth of the matter is: God never changes. His power to give a future and hope never change. His Word never changes. So when life weaves stories of doubt and hopelessness in God’s authority over circumstances, I reread accounts of His faithfulness and redemption. I refer back to the Truth... All the while Job’s family, home, crops and health demolished...God was preparing to give him double of what was killed, stolen, lost and damaged. The time Joseph was a slave and prisoner...God was planning for him to be second in command over Egypt. When Ruth was a homeless, barren widow...God was creating a home in Boaz’s heart for her to be a wife, and mother, and great, great, great-grandmother to His Son. As Lazarus was bound in grave clothes... God was forming the breath that’d give him new life. The moment David laid down in adultery...God was laying the groundwork for him to rise up in repentance. Every time Saul cruci ed Christians...God saw Paul preaching the cruci ed Christ. With each strike that Sarah beat Hagar with...God saw Sarah beating her jealousy, pride and doubt with the birth of Isaac. When Esther was an orphaned girl shaking in fear for her life...God made a way for His daughter to shake a kingdom and save His people. As Rahab welcomed men into the shelter of her bed...God saw her sheltering the spies on her roof. When Peter lost faith and denied Christ... God saw him bringing many to faith as he proclaimed Christ. As Moses killed an Egyptian with his hands... God saw him chiseling the Ten Commandments with those same hands. At the time Mary saw Jesus die...God saw Jesus resurrected and seated on His heavenly throne! No matter what the dire, dreary circumstances, God turned each into a hopeful future. Our key verse assures us, none of His plans can be thwarted. Despite what is happening in life, these stories of redemption and hope speak the truth. God can and will reverse, restore, revive and renew. He sees beyond the present troubles and is sparking a re to light up the future with hope. As we begin this New Year, let’s be on the lookout for His plans to come to pass. And trust Him that He can take any circumstance and use it for our good and His glory. Dear Lord, I’m so grateful You not onl y see my future, but You’ve planned it. Than k You for Your faithfulness last year. And for recording these stories of lives You turned dreary pasts into hopeful futures. I ask that You do the same for my circumstances this New Year please. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle located 200 yards off Highway 80 across from the UPS Store. A s we enter the New Year, is God on the scene?

Thank You Les Morgan C a r e e r C o r n e r Career CornerCollege Accreditationby Matt KindermannMy philosophy on education is twofold: rst, you’re never too old to go back to school; second, any education is better than no education. With that in mind, many adults who choose to go back to school face the commonly confused status of accreditation. The most important thing to know when talking about accreditation is that the Federal Department of Education (DOE) does NOT accredit colleges and universities. The DOE only grants accrediting authority to selected national and regional accreditation boards that are non-governmental. So, you can believe that there are few hard and fast rules concerning accreditation and that there are sometimes signi cant differences between one accreditation and another. Schools are accredited either nationally or regionally. The differences between national and regional accreditation typically, but not always, follow some basic guidelines. Regionally accredited institutions are mostly non-pro t and academically oriented to award college degrees in Arts or Sciences. Nationally accredited institutions are mostly for-pro t, vocationally oriented and award certi cates, diplomas and some college degrees in Applied Sciences. There are six regional and six national accrediting agencies in the U.S. and these accrediting agencies can award an accreditation in one of three ways; institutional, specialized and programmatic. An institutional accreditation is awarded to the entire school and usually covers all the programs offered by the institution. A specialized accreditation is awarded to a portion of the school, such as an institution’s College of Science but not the same institution’s College of Arts. A programmatic accreditation is awarded to a single program offered by the institution, such as a Licensed Practical Nursing program. There are over 100 programmatic accreditations, so some schools that are not institutionally accredited may still offer accredited programs. A full list of accredited institutions and programs can be found at http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/. Accreditation simply means that a body of educators agreed that a particular school, program or concentration meets their de nition of quality. These de nitions are uid and my advice is if you are not planning on ever pursuing an undergraduate degree (BA or BS), or graduate degree (MA or MS), don’t sweat the accreditation. However, if you think you might one day want to get an advanced degree, you should look towards regionally accredited programs. Some nationally accredited courses may not transfer to regionally accredited programs. Ultimately, it is up to the transferring institution to accept your transfer credit and they don’t have to.

DON'T LET PAIN INTERFERE WITH LIFE!!!!LaBelle Chiropractic ClinicKyle Studley D.C.Over 30 years in LaBelle € Neck & Back Pain € X-rays € Neurologist on staff 45 Bryan Ave.€ LaBelle, Fl 33935(863) 675-3427Family Eye Care sells electronic focusing prescription glassesFamily Eye Care has always been an innovator in offering the newest technology in eye care to the residents of LaBelle and surrounding areas. They are very proud to announce that they now have available Pixel Optics' revolutionary emPower! eyeglasses, the world's first electronic focusing prescription eyewear. They are the first and currently the only vision care practitioners in Hendry County to offer this new technology. The eyeglasses feature composite lenses with a thin transparent LCD-like layer, microchips, micro-machine accelerometers and miniature rechargeable batteries. With all this they have the same weight, feel and look of your everyday high fashion eyewear designs. The eyewear cost about $1,350 for a complete pair, which includes the frame, lenses, coatings, and all electronic components including a charger. "We are happy to offer our patients this cutting edge vision correction option. Bifocals or the reading power in progressive lenses often interfere with daily activity. Walking up and down steps is a perfect example. Being able to turn the reading power off to reduce it is a real breakthrough," says Drs' Parrish and Youmans. The microchip, micro-accelerometers, and miniature batteries are hidden discreetly in the temples of the frames. The transparent liquid crystal layer in each lens is able to electronically change and activate the near focus zone of the lens only when needed without making a sound or change in the appearance of the lens. Just touch the frame to adjust your view, or set it to do it automatically. emPower! offers instant, automatic vision correction for all ranges of sight, less distortion and wider fields of view compared to a traditional progressive lens. This gives you unprecedented control over you vision! Wearers can choose to operate the eyeglasses in three different modes: manual on, automatic and manual off. emPower! is shock resistant and waterproof. One charge of the battery allows operation for two to three days of use. Stop by the optical at Family Eye Care and let Tom, Natalie or Tracy give you a no obligation demonstration. No appointment necessary. Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:30-5:00, except Thursday 7:30-7:00. We also have hours on some Saturdays. 7 Caloosa Belle January 12, 2012 Community Briefs

Sports Shorts by Wrestling Coach Armando A yalaLaBelle High School Wrestling had an impressive performance by senior wrestlers at the Island Coast Duals Saturday, Jan. 7. Senior Octavio Vasquez, 145 pound class had a solid performance wrestling to a 40 perfect record for the tournament. Team Captain Wolfgang Lynn 138 pound class fought his way to a 41 record for the tournament. His only loss came from Dunbar's Young, who placed fourth in the State Series for 2011. A stand out performance by senior Delendio Watson led to a perfect 50 record for the tournament defeating Island Coasts Hessler at the 152 pound class in the nal match of the tournament. Hessler, a State projected placer, was stunned and overcome by Delendio's aggressiveness and determination to assure a victory. All Coach Ayala could say was "Wow!" Watson's victory over Hessler was the match of the tournament, going in we felt positive but when two State level wrestlers step on the mat it can go either way. Delendio did it the Cowboy Way and stunned the crowd of local Island Coast supporters. Come out to the LaBelle Middle School gym Friday, Jan. 13, at 5 p.m. and support the LHS Wrestling Team as they take on Oasis Charter School and SWFL Christian Academy. This is the only home match for the team and it is also Senior Night. LHS wrestling: True grit

Thirty-six-year-old Billy Hanes was diagnosed with a brain tumor last Memorial Day weekend. Billy is well known from his longtime job at Log Cabin but has not been able to work since last January. His doctors have suggested that he go to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville for further testing. He has some underlying issues that may have nothing to do with the brain tumor. Since there are numerous possibilities, they feel it would be in his best interest to go to a specialty hospital to determine the problem. Once they determine the problem then a local doctor would probably be able to treat him. His mom, Sherry, has relocated back to LaBelle to assist with his care. Any donations to assist with this upcoming trip would be greatly appreciated. He has no insurance. Donations can be made at: Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union in Sherry Hanes’ account or send to: P.O. Box 1454 LaBelle, FL 33975. The family also asks for your prayers and cards of encouragement. Where is Billy Hanes? by Pudge LehmanI know a lot of old time iron frying pan users will be rolling in their graves but, yes you can wash that iron skillet with dish detergent. Dry it well with a paper towel, put back on the stove on medium heat with a few drops of oil, wipe around with a paper towel and heat a few minutes. Only do this with a well seasoned pan. Usually hot water is all you need but some messes require actually using soap. Grease spots on clothing? Dab some cornstarch on and leave a while, then wash. This works on carpet also. Work the cornstarch into the carpet and leave on overnight then vacuum in the morning. This method works for mud and other stains as well. If you have some old shoulder pads lying around put them on the ends of a few hangers. You can sew them in place or use rubber bands and they will keep your clothing from getting “hanger bumps” on the shoulders. Something to think about: You never learn to swear until you learn to drive! OR Where do senior citizens look for fashionable glasses? Their foreheads of course. OR Why do have to “put your two cents in” but it’s only “a penny for your thoughts?” Where does the extra penny go? Witches Brew Longtime former LaBelle resident Greg Sutton, a re ghter in Titusville, is appealing to his old friends to help him in the ght against childhood cancer. On March 17, Greg will be having his head shaved to stand in solidarity with kids ghting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to nd cures. This is Greg’s second year as a “shavee” and he is also his team captain of participants at Titusville Fire Department. To help, call (888) 899-BALD (2253) or go to http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants / GregSutton and click on donate to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Join ght against childhood cancer

A tractor trailer from Swift Transportation did a masterful impression of Santa's sleigh after it rolled over on US 27 near Moore Haven carrying a load of produce and meat to a Walmart Distribution warehouse.

Air travel has gone from the marvel of short hops in propeller driven machines to space travel. Even young children are pro cient with computers that were unpredictable just a few years ago. Tina Elliott turns 100 years old on January 13. Her life spans a time that has seen more technological advancement than in all the previous years of human experience. Just one life, lived well and it's as important as all those other things. Tina was born in south Georgia. Her father was an accountant. Tina had two brothers and two sisters. She graduated from Okeechobee High School where she was a basketball star. She could have gone to Stetson on a basketball scholarship but her teachers felt she would be at a disadvantage academically so she passed it up. Not that she ever minded that. Tina met her future husband while she was working in a drug store. The relationship just clicked and after just ten dates they were married. Her husband, Jess, knew immediately she was the one for him and never had a problem letting the world know that "she belongs to me." She liked that. They married in 1931, embarking on a long and ful lling life together. Tina and Jess loved to dance, especially fast dance, she said, and even won a Charleston contest once. She used the $25 she won to buy Christmas presents for her family. Jess took a job as broker for a group of farmers in Pahokee, the Everglades Grower Co-op, where he became a general manager. Through the war years the co-op had many government contracts and later contracted to send fresh vegetables to the North. Jess worked there for 38 years. Tina was very content to be a wife and mother, with a husband who adored her and three boys that "weren't any trouble." Tina said she grew up as "Daddy's girl" and accounts for her satisfying life because she was always able to "go with the ow." She doesn't recall any particularly dif cult times. "I enjoyed it all," she said. As a young woman she spent her time raising children, keeping house, and doing all those "mom things" like taking on a Girl Scout troop and coaching basketball. She taught Sunday School at Pahokee First United Methodist Church and organized the Pahokee Garden Club. And loved playing bridge, but eventually had to give it up when her eyesight gave out on her. When she moved to LaBelle from Pahokee in 1991, Tina kept active by volunteering at Barron Library and was chairman of the Friends of the Library. These days she loves to go for rides with her caretaker Marie Kohl in her golf cart, taking in the sights and waving to people. She still goes to Promises bible study at Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church on Wednesdays. The two women get a long great. Both Marie and Tina are spunky, stubborn (although Tina denies that part) and have a great personality. Marie said Tina has a very supportive group of friends who help keep her involved in the community. Tina's son, Charles, also lives with them. Tina's friends at Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church had planned an open house for Tina and of course, she received guests at her home. At 100, Tina Elliott still enjoys life Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantTina Elliott, 100 years young V FW newsVFW Post 10100 will serve Salisbury Steak lunch with mashed potatoes and corn, Thursday, Jan. 12, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; $6.
