ONE NIGHT ONLYNovember 15 • 4 to 9 pm at Langford Ford 851 South Main Street LaBelle 863-675-1686 F or details go to www.randomactso usion.com/ nalact Thursday, November 15, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 46 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The world is a big and scary place, but it’s also a warm and beautiful one. Everyone gets some of both in their life but, overall, what you get out if life depends on how you choose to look at it. People with disabilities have more than their share of “the bad stuff,” but often their attitude makes them an inspiration to others. Recently 21 adults with disabilities made the most of a four-day camp experience. Held at the Riverside Retreat on CR 78, the event was the rst of its kind in this area put on by the Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund and coordinated by Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. The fund was established in 2005 in Texas by Jerry and Sharon Miller in honor of their two sons, Robert and Benjamin, who battled their disabilities daily. Sadly, Robert passed away in 2006. These camps are the Millers’ way of keeping the legacy of the brothers alive. The rst camp took place in Texas in 2007 following a back yard event at the Millers’ home. The idea was to raise money to provide a new experience for adults like their two developmentally challenged sons, with rare opportunities to share social events. Benjamin had been living in an assisted living situation with several friends. When that accommodation ended. Jerry and Sharon decided to do something they had long planned to they moved to Florida. She said its dif cult for special people like Robert and Ben to have the social experiences others do because of the isolation that hems them in. School and other social experiences are not abundant for the disabled and they hoped these camps would ful ll a need for disabled adults. “It gives disabled adults an opportunity to connect with each other,” Sharon said. Program brings smiles to special campers Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantBenjamin beams at his mother, Sharon Miller, after practicing his talent for the Halloween bash at Trailways Camp. Folks in LaBelle have become used to ringing in the holiday season with the festive Captain Hendry Dinner. Originally begun by Janice Groves as a fundraiser for the Education Center of Southwest Florida, Inc., the event has always been dedicated to education. Now, with the disbanding of the ECSWF, the Hendry County Economic Development Council is seeking to “re purpose” the event to help fund its Education Task Force. EDC Executive Director Gregg Gillman is challenging the business community to become part of the solution to Hendry’s educational needs. The event is intended to include the entire community in the effort to support the education system. Leadership Hendry County alumni are already volunteering as readers for the Voluntary Pre-K program. The task force is dedicated to nding both traditional and nontraditional ways to recruit and retain good teachers.

There was no shortage of fun activities at camp, including crafts, swimming, a hayride, a camp re, horseback riding with the Special Equestrians, shing and even a Halloween bash with a DJ. A talent show turned the spotlight on each camper in turn with a yen to sing, dance or recite poetry, Naturally, there were award and each camper took home a special Goodwill T-shirt loaded with autographs of the friends they met that week. In Texas Ben lived for ten years in a group home sponsored by a faith-based group. Now Ben has his own place again, with a helper, just down from his parents'. He is now 37 years old and has managed to negotiate through several tragedies including Robert's death, as well as that of his grandfather. Sharon said Ben inspires them every day. Sharon and Jerry are quick to point out that their life's work has bene ted from many well wishers. For instance, their church at Sanibel supports their fund with 18 volunteers as an outreach activity. The fund is always accepting donations, which can be made online at www.trailwayscamps.org. Sharon said in planning the camp they wanted a diverse group, both male and female. They interviewed the families of prospective campers to select the best candidates for the camp. Watching the campers as they take on new experiences, their pride and pleasure showing through their big smiles, she observed with satisfaction, "This is a joy." The menu for the dinner includes brisket and chicken by Cracker Cookin' and Caterin'.

Dr. Lasheba Travis recently received con rmation that her research on teen pregnancy prevention has been published through ProQuest, a research-based publishing company that connects people to reliable information. Dr. Travis's research is entitled "Teen Pregnancy Prevention in a Rural County," which focused on the frequency of attendance in religious services in African American males ages 13 through 16 to determine if it was correlated to their behavior, behavioral intent and decision-making toward abstinence. Her research found a correlation between the frequency of attending religious services and the behavior and decision-making toward abstinence, but there was no correlation with behavior intent. To recognize her accomplishments, coworkers from the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments honored her with a tea/luncheon at the First Baptist Church in LaBelle. Attendees from Hendry, Glades and Lee counties showed their support and showered her with cards and gifts. Dr. Travis said, "I have many things to be grateful for. Firstly, I give God all the praise. Next, I am especially indebted to the Hendry County Recreation Board and Ramiro Rodriguez; Reverend Dwayne Brown, pastor of Mt Calvary Church in Clewiston, and Diane Brown and Valerie Nelson for their support and assistance in the accomplishment of my research. Lastly, I am grateful to my co-workers for honoring and celebrating my achievements." 4 Caloosa Belle November 15, 2012 To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

Fort MyersGoodwill Industries of Southwest Florida has signed closing papers to purchase a 126,000 square foot facility in Fort Myers. The building, located at 5100 Tice Street, is four times larger than the agency’s existing headquarters in North Fort Myers. “Our agency has experienced exponential growth over the last ve years,” explains Tom Feurig, President/CEO of Goodwill. “North Fort Myers has been our home since 1966, and we plan to maintain a presence in North Fort Myers. We’ve made the most of the 30,000 square feet we have here, and we’ve just run out of opportunities to expand in our existing space.” Since 2007, Goodwill has experienced a 300 percent increase in the number of clients it serves through its mission services. That year, the agency assisted 7,200 Southwest Floridians with disabilities and other disadvantages. By the close of 2012, Goodwill estimates that 29,000 clients will have come to the agency seeking opportunities to become more independent. That increase in mission services has also sparked growth within the organization itself. Over the last ve years, Goodwill’s Southwest Florida workforce has increased in size from 425 to 650 employees. A number of Goodwill employees have been asked to work from home or temporary locations to accommodate the organization’s rapid growth. The current agency headquarters is home to Goodwill’s administrative staff, operations plant, e-commerce department, Secure Shred facilities and a Job-Link center. However, the new Fort Myers facility will be more than just an administrative and resource center. The larger location will provide the agency with the opportunity to expand its services even further, with room to accommodate the Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy charter school, a clearance/outlet store and a training center to provide opportunities for people with disabilities. “It’s exciting to know we’re going to be expanding our services in East Fort Myers,” adds Feurig. “We hope to contribute to the growth and revitalization of the greater Tice area.” Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. provides programs and services to help people with disabilities and other disadvantages overcome their barriers to employment and independence. For more information about Goodwill and its services, please visit the agency’s website at www.goodwillsw .org New headquarters in future for Goodwill THANK YOUI would like to thank all the voters, residents and friends of Hendry County for their continued support and friendship during this election. I will continue to work hard for the citizens of Hendry County and my of“ce is here to serve you. I would also like to thank my staff for their continuos hard work.

The Prayer Breakfast was not intended to endorse any particular religion but rather to highlight the importance of faith, values, and integrity as important components of our daily lives. The event had many wonderful speakers, which included short messages from several Pastors and community members. In addition to great speakers, wonderful music and song was provided by Hannah Czoski and Carolyn Ford. The delicious breakfast was prepared by Cassie’s Cracker Cookin’& Caterin’. The beliefs in religion, faith and spiritual values have been important part of our community. Regardless of religious af liation, faith is an important component of our everyday lives. It is the basis for our values and it in uences our interactions with those around us (Our family, friends, and our community).

Come out to Alva Middle School on December 13 and enjoy an evening full of events! by Mel Greenleaf Homecoming Week 2012 at LaBelle High School was once again a very enjoyable experience. This annual event began on October 22 and concluded on October 27. There was a lot of school spirit on display and students seemed to enjoy all of the activities. Each day of the week had a different theme and students dressed up to t that theme. Monday was Sport’s Day with Brenah McVey and Abby Arnold voted best dressed. Tuesday was Decade Day with the Andrea Lutkenhaus and the Viking Boys (Alton Burton, Ronnie Burton and Nick Weigsheid) being judged best dressed. Shelby O’Bannon (Snow White) and Daulton Miken (gladiator) were best dressed on Wednesday, Character Day. Thursday was Geeks and Freaks Day and best dressed were Major Williams and Shelba Kelly. Best dressed for Friday’s Spirit Day were Jesten Clark and Mariel Juarez. During each day of Homecoming Week, there were trivia contests. Several teachers challenged students to guess answers to questions and earn points for their respective classes. The school-wide contest was “What a Character.” Students were asked to guess the favorite cartoon characters of various LHS staff members. During the day on Wednesday, the Boys Volley Ball games took place. In the rst set of games, the Seniors crushed the Juniors. In the second set of games, the Sophomores beat the Freshmen. Then the Sophomores called out the Seniors and a winner take all game was played. In spite of their enthusiasm, the Sophomores were no match for the Seniors. The Seniors easily cruised to victory and earned the title as the 2012 Boys Volley Ball champion. At night, the girls took the eld for the PowderPuff competition. In the rst game, the Sophomores shut out the Freshmen 19–0. In the second game, the Seniors also put up a goose egg on the Juniors as the Seniors won easily 22–0. In the championship game, the Seniors scored rst and held on to beat the Sophomores for the 2012 LHS PowderPuff championship. For the rst time ever, the women staff members at LaBelle High School challenged the PowderPuff champion to a game. This was a very close battle with the Seniors winning this rst ever “Faculty Challenge” game. At 4 p.m. on Friday, the annual Homecoming Parade took place. This great traditional parade traveled down Main Street from the U-Save parking lot to Barron Park. At Barron Park, everyone gathered for a short Pep Rally to show their support for the Cowboy football team. Each of the four classes at LHS created their own oats for the parade with the Senior Class being judged the best and the Junior class entry coming in second. When the points were calculated for the coveted Spirit Trophy, it was the Senior class that dominated all of the other classes, winning the Spirit Trophy by more than 1,000 points. On Saturday night the annual Homecoming Dance was held and our theme this year was “Light Up the Night.”. Members of Student Government transformed the cafeteri a into a luminescent wonderland. A festively lit tunnel directed guests into the beautifully decorated arena. Students enjoyed music, food and drinks until midnight. Dancers even donned glow light glasses and glow bracelets to add to the mood. The faculty, staff and students of LaBelle High School want to thank all of the wonderful people who helped make Homecoming 2012 such a success. We want to especiall y thank the City of LaBelle and the Hendr y County Sheriff’s for their assistance. A very special “Thank You” goes to Mr. Pat Langford for his generous loan of eight great Langford Ford vehicles which transported the 2012 Homecoming Court members in the parade.

Josh was a 2000 graduate of LHS. During his high school years, Josh played on the Baseball and Basketball teams. It is no surprise that some of his fondest memories of his time with the Cowboys were the teammates he had and the time they spent together. He credits his coaches for helping him be successful in sports. He also recalls the tremendous support they gave him growing up during those high school years. Remembering some of the many friends he made completes the wonderful feelings he has for the years he was a student at LHS. After obtaining his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College of Chiropractic, Josh returned home and for the past three years has opened and operated Parrish Family Chiropractic. Josh attends church in Fort Myers, is a member of the Rotary Club of LaBelle and is the LHS football team Physician. Josh and his wife, Selena, are expecting their rst child in January. Josh’s personality, dedication, professional skills and personal commitments to community would have made him a very welcome member of any town in America. We are so very glad that he decided to bring those talents back home to LaBelle where it all started. Thanks Josh, and congratulations for being our 2012 LaBelle High School Honored Alumni.

Since the old U-Save in Moore Haven closed in October 2011, Moore Haven residents have had no choice but to drive 16 miles or more each way to the closest supermarket. This has placed a real hardship on those who do not have transportation. Earlier this year, Joe Sweet, who owns Harvest House Grocery on U.S. 441 S.E. in Okeechobee, decided to invest in Moore Hav en. “We could have gone anywhere around the lake,” said Mr. Sweet. “There were a lot of stores available. But the need was here. “We want an opportunity to grow, to be a service to the public, to make a difference in the community,” he said, “We would like to see the community grow. We would like to be a part of that.” Mr. Sweet and his wife, Lisa, have made a big investment in the store. Just cleaning the place up cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The store employs 32 people. Mr. Sweet said he was overwhelmed by the response to their rst “help wanted” ad. In an eight-hour period, over 200 people applied to work. “We interviewed them all,” he said. “We w anted to give everybody an opportunity.” He said some people who applied drove over from Clewiston and Okeechobee. “There are just not enough jobs to go around,” he said. Work on the building started in July. The clean up was a big job. They had to tear down some of the walls and chip out and replace some of the oors. They did a lot of scraping, bleaching and disinfecting before they could even think about painting. Those who have visited the building in recent weeks frequently commented, “It smells clean in here.” The spacious store now offers fresh produce, meat, dairy foods and a wide variety of canned and boxed goods. Mr. Sweet said they tried to consider the population when allocating space for various products. For example, the store’s spice aisle has 1,500 different seasonings. “This is more of a cooking community,” said Mr. Sweet. “If they want to make something, I want them to nd all of the ingredients here.” The store carries IGA brands as well as other popular brands. For example, in the ice cream department customers can choose from IGA ice cream, Blue Bunny or Breyers. He said they will probably make some changes after the store opens if there is customer demand for something they didn’t initially offer. “We picked as much variety as possible,” he said. Mr. Sweet is proudest of the section of the store he calls his “dollar department.” The dollar department has more than 1,000 items for $1 each. The wide range of products for $1 includes items such as toothpaste, shampoo, plastic goods, trash bags, canned chili, seasonings, jelly, cereal, batteries and instant coffee. “This is not something you usually see in a supermarket, but I think there is a need for it in this community,” he explained. IGA stands for the Independent Grocers Alliance. IGA was founded in 1926, bringing together independent grocers across the United States to ensure that the trusted, family-owned local grocery store remained strong in the face of growing chain competition. The IGA motto is “Hometown Proud.” For more information online, go to www. iga.com. New grocery store opens in Moore Haven Submitted photo/ Bill WarrenStill kings of the skyFour military helicopters refueled at LaBelle Airport last Thursday on their way from Hampton, outside of Atlanta, GA, to an air show in Homestead Nov. 3-4. There were two AH1 Cobra Attack helicopters and two Vietnam Era Huey Helicopters, plus a small plane that was called “Birddog.” All are privately owned and operated by mostly retired military pilots who go from air show to air show displaying them.
