Norovirus is commonly called the “stomach u.” (Even though it’s not related to any u viruses) Noroviruses are found in the stool or vomit of infected people. Norovirus is highly contagious and may cause vomiting and diarrhea and stomach cramps. A nyone can be infected with noroviruses and get sick. Also, you can get Norovirus illness more than once during your life. Symptoms usually start within 24 to 48 hours and most people begin to feel better within one or two days and have no long-term health effects. NOTE--People with Norovirus illness are contagious from the moment they begin feeling sick until at least 3 days after they recover. But, some people may be contagious for even longer. There is no vaccine to prevent Norovirus infection. Also, there is no drug to treat people who get sick from the virus. Antibiotics w ill not help if you have Norovirus illness. This is because antibiotics ght against bacteria, not viruses. Norovirus can spread quickly from person to person in crowded, closed places. People can become infected with the virus in several ways including:  Touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus, and then placing their hands in their mouth.  Eating food or drinking liquids that have been contaminated with the virus (usually from the food handler not washing their hands properly)  Eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated with Norovirus (someone gets stool or vomit on their hands, and then touches food or drink).  Having direct contact with another person who is infected and showing symptoms (caring for someone who is infected, sharing food or eating utensils with someone who is infected) Noroviruses are the most common cause of gastroenteritis in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year more than 20 million cases of acute gastroenteritis are caused by noroviruses. That means about 1 in every 15 Americans will get Norovirus illness each year. Norovirus is also estimated to cause over 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths each year in the United States. The best way to reduce your chance of getting Norovirus is by following some simple tips:  Wash hands frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, before eating and prior to preparing food.  Carefully wash fruits and vegetables, and cook foods completely before eating them.  Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness by using bleach-based household cleaners.  Immediately remove and wash clothing or linens that may be contaminated with the virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap).  Flush or discard any vomit and/or stool in the toilet and make sure the surrounding area is kept clean. People who have symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea should not prepare or handle food until they are completely free of symptoms and for at least three days after all symptoms are gone. Any foods that may have been contaminated by an ill person should be thrown away. For additional information, you can visit http://www.cdc.gov/ Features/Norovirus/ or talk with your healthcare provider. W hat is Norovirus?

The Power of Belongingby Matt KindermannI read a fancy statistic last week arguing that we are now entering such a technological era in employment where 50 percent of candidates are now referred by current employees through their own vast social networks. If you are an employer, job seeker, trades contractor or career professional, here are some tips on how to tap into the hidden job market and hidden candidate pool. First, read the trade journals. Access to these “information mines” can be aquired for free by building a prole on LinkedIn or other professional social media site. There is a specialty trade group for nearly any occupation that you can join for free, gaining access to insider information on trends, new discoveries or technical applications, and possible job openings, all the while expanding your social network and digital footprint. To increase your attractiveness as a candidate, you should contribute to these groups by sharing information. Second, go to the library where you can peruse the business sections of local newspapers, as well as business related magazines such as Gulfshore Business, Business Observer, Gulfcoast Business Review and Florida Trends. These periodicals will tell you what businesses are expanding and who the movers and shakers are in the business community. Also, get on Facebook and “Like” those businesses or professionals you would consider working for or hiring; or, “Follow” them on Twitter. Most businesses and professionals have Facebook and Twitter pro les where they update news and insider information. Third, be active in a local trade group. Money spent job advertising and job seeking can be saved by targeting an existing network of like-minded people. Visit the Horizon Council website, a regional economic development organization that functions as a public-private non-pro t, at www.fortmyersregionalpartnership.com. This website has links where tech companies can join the SWFL Regional Technology Partnership, builders can join the SW Regional Manufacturers Association, HVAC contractors can join the SWFL Air Conditioning Contractors Association, as well as a host of others. Next week we will focus on the possibilities gained by attending a networking event at one of these groups where employers and professionals congregate and socialize outside of the of ce and in a relaxed atmosphere, exchanging ideas, business cards, and even resumes. Career Corner Matt Kindermann Last week Caloosa Baptist hosted the Dental Bus owned by the Florida Baptist Convention. From Monday through Friday it was parked in front of what is formerly Flora & Ella’s restaurant, now owned by the church, and called the Grace Building. A total of 103 people were given free dental care, including extractions, lling, and cleaning. “We heard stories of people who came in for help because they had actually pulled their own teeth”, said Pastor Les Morgan. “They must have been in an awful amount of pain and our heart went out to them. So, we connected with Florida Baptist Convention Dental Bus and made arrangements for it to be in LaBelle. What a great blessing that was to so many people” Many volunteers from Caloosa Baptist helped organize the dental ministry. Those requesting assistance were interviewed two weeks prior to the bus came to LaBelle to make sure they were quali ed to receive the treatment. Approximately 20 percent were Latinos and 80 percent were Caucasians. Caloosa Baptist people lled many positions that needed so proper dental care could be provided throughout the week. The needs included completing paperwork, speaking with the people as they arrived, child care while parents were with the dentist, dental assistants, meals for the volunteers throughout the week, and of course, dentists. “We are so grateful for those medical professionals who donated their time throughout the week” Morgan said. “Dr. Sherrie Watkins from LaBelle and Dr. Bryant King from Ft. Myers both gave up a morning from their regular practice to help people. Also Dr. Al Warren, who was here all week from Stewart, came and stayed all ve days. He is always with the bus and oversees all efforts in that regard.” Heritage School out of Ft, Myers also made arrangements from some of their students to come as dental assistants throughout the week. Their help was greatly appreciated. Along with meeting the dental needs of people Caloosa Baptist also helped with spiritual needs of those from the community. As people came in for their appointments, a member from the church had prayer with them before going to see the dentist. Because several people from Caloosa Baptist are bilingual, both English speaking and Spanish speaking persons were spoken with. “It was an exciting week to see so man y of our people engaged in ministry activities”, Pastor Morgan stated. “We were able to share the gospel with everyone on them. It was a thrill to see 37 people respond to Christ and pray to receive Him as Savior. To share with so many and have those results was worth all the hard work that the wee k required of our people. We are in the people business. When we saw a need, we wanted to meet it with the Lord’s help. He gets all the Glory!” The dental bus came equipped with two dental of ces, one at each end of the bus, and an X-Ray machine to help detect the situation of each person. Because Caloos a Baptist is part of the Florida Baptist Convention the church was able to secure the use of the bus. “We have been asked if we will be providing this free dental care again for those in our area”, said Morgan. “Our answer is a resounding, YES! There were folks who wept and thanked us over and over again for providing assistance to them. What a jo y was ours to bless others and come alongside some needy individuals. It is our hope to make this an annual event and we are working with the FBC in locking in a date for 2014.”Caloosa Baptist is located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80 in LaBelle. Service times are 9:15 and 10:45 Sunday mornings an d 6:00 Sunday evening. Mid-week service is at 6:30 Wednesday evening.

6 Caloosa Belle February 7, 2013 by Sarah LappIt’s safe to say that the Varsity Cowboy soccer team is on re. Maybe it’s the thrill of being the rst team in school history to win a District title and advance to the Regional Finals. Maybe it’s the drive to ght for their late travel coach Pedro Ramirez and late LHS Senior and diehard Cowboys fan Ryan Hellard. Maybe it’s magic. “I have no idea what’s happening here. They keep pulling through at the very end. Everybody knows their job on the eld, I guess that’s why. I’m just along for the magical ride,” Head Coach Jeffrey Frost said of his golden boys. LHS hosted the Region 2A-3 semi nal game on Saturday, February 2. With a pulsing crowd of over 1,000, the Cowboys defeated the Bishop Verot Vikings 5-4 on penalty kicks. For 100 minutes the score remained tied at 0-0. During the rst half Senior Marco Telon w as violently tripped and seemingly sprained his knee. After a few minutes of recovery, Telon came back on the eld as aggressive as ever on defense. Senior goalie Omar Lora had 4 saves on the Vikings, owning his goal. The second half brought four more saves by Lora. Despite an ankle injury to Senior Ramiro Morales, the Cowboy defense held off all initiative by the Vikings. Junior David Marroquin took two dynamite shots, but both were blocked by Verot’s goalie. With the score still 0-0 at the conclusion of 80 minutes, both teams revamped for overtime. Senior Luis Hernandez gave his boys a motivational pep talk that made even the reporters get emotional. “We have ran so many miles for this. We beat Immokalee, Clewiston, Lake Placid and even Verot last week! No one has gone where we are. We’re District champs baby. Look out at all those people! We can’t stop now! Let’s do this baby! Let’s win this!” Hernandez said. Overtime turned into double overtime as both teams struggled to make it past two extraordinary goalies. Lora had another two saves and Freshmen Enrique Jimenez took a great shot. After a scoreless overtime, it was time for penalty kicks. Senior Carlos Suarez, Senior Luis Luna, Freshmen Enrique Jimenez, Junior Omar Pena, and Junior Pedro Torres nailed all of theirs with ease. By the time of the 10th shot, the score was 5-4. Verot’s Vieceli stepped up to the goal, hoping to tie the score. The crowd was hushed as the ball went soaring. Goalie Lora pounced to his left, de ecting the ball with one hand, causing the ball to bounce off the goal post. Lora fell to his knees in disbelief as a rambunctious Cowboy team piled on top of their heroic goalie. After a surreal moment, Lora stopped for a few interviews, including one for The News Press. “I had to stop one for Ryan. It was the last one and I had to do it. That was the only thing I was thinking. I had to do it for Ryan,” Lora said of his game winning save. A school rst. A coach’s baf ed joy. A team fueled by two angels.

The pedalin’ preacher pedaled his bicycle 168 miles from LaBelle, to Mt. Dora to deliver a check to Mt. Dora Christian Home and Bible School. Steve Hildebrand, minister of Central Church of Christ in LaBelle, challenged his congregation to raise at least $5,000 for the yearly children’s home can drive, and committed to ride his bicycle the 168 miles to deliver the check if they met that goal. On Sunday, January 20, all donations were totaled and the goal was more than exceeded, with total contributions of $9,500. Preacher Steve left LaBelle on Thursday morning, January 24, and pedaled 98 miles, spending the night in Lake Wales, then traveled the remaining 68 miles and arrived at Mt. Dora Christian Home and Bible School around 11:15 a.m. on Friday the 25th, where he received a warm welcome by children and staff from the school. Twenty-three members of the LaBelle congregation met him in Mt. Dora, spent time touring the facility and shared in the monthly chicken dinner that evening. Following the dinner, Preacher Steve and Thomas Gaskins presented the check for $9,500 to Dr. James Moore, President, Chuck Shepherd, Director of Social Services, and Tim Deen, Director of Development for Mt. Dora Christian Home and Bible School. Central Church of Christ in LaBelle is a small congregation of approximately 50 members, and has been a supporter of the Mt.

The United Way of Hendry & Glades and its 34 partner agencies operating in Hendry and Glades counties are helping local residents every day. Three United Way Houses in LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore Haven serve as central locations where residents can access many services with one visit. For people who work long hours, have to use friends to assist with transportation, or w ho may not even have money for gas, this is extremely important. LaBelle United Way House Manager Arlene Bettencourt said of the houses, “The United Way House is considered a ‘safe place’ to many people in our community. We had one woman who could not speak English come to us in tears, beaten about the face and torso and burned on her chest. Bilingual persons with our partner agencies were able to interpret for us. Rescue was called along with the police. She was hospitalized and came back to us for help with obtaining clothing.” Many people in the community donate food, clothing and other items that the house makes available to those in need. “We have an egg man. A generous soul who lives in our area with his 200 chickens, delivers to us twice a week to give free eggs to clients. We also have a disabled man who drives his specially equipped car to pick up bread and sweets every Wednesday from Winn-Dixie to be distributed to the community from the house,” said Arlene Bettencourt. Once a month, every month of the year, Harry Chapin Food Bank, The Salvation Army and the United Way have a food distribution in the park in LaBelle and feed from 140 to 220 families. Thirty-two United Way Partner Agencies providing services to Hendry and Glades residents from the United Way Houses or from their own of ces include: The Salvation Army, Goodwill, Alvin A. Dubin Alzheimer’s Resource Center, Catholic Charities, Harry Chapin Food Bank Early Learning Coalition, Hendry-Glades Behavioral Health Center and many more. Residents who need human service assistance should call the United Way 211 program by dialing 2-1-1 or (800) 887-9234. florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 12 Caloosa Belle February 7, 2013 It is Girls State selection time again.
