At this 150th Memorial Day celebration, community members and veterans of con icts from as far back as World War II bowed their heads to “honor the dead and heal the living” and prayed that our local soldiers will be spared in the current con icts and that those at rest will do so in honor and peace. American Legion Post 130, supported by VFW 10100, DAV Chapter 144 and their auxiliaries, put on the ceremony along with a community lunch afterward. Korean War vet Millard Wagnon, left, and WWII vet George Briede honor their comrades. Two proud but very young Americans, Charlie, 9, and Parker, 7, attended the Memorial Day services at Fort Denaud Cemetery with their dad, Jon Hammett. Young Charlie said they were there to “celebrate” his namesake their uncle, CWO Robert Charles Hammett Jr. CWO Hammett graduated from LaBelle High School in 1987 and was killed in Iraq in June 24, 2008. He died in a bomb blast as he and other Americans walked into a meeting to help the Iraqi people claim their country and their freedom.A Son’s TributeThirteen-year-old LaBelle Middle School student Pedro Nieves, a member of the Sons of the Legion Squadron 130, played Taps at the Memorial Day ceremony at Fort Denaud Cemetery Monday morning. He was there with his grandparents, Pedro and Maria Nieves, in honor of young Pedro’s mother their daughter, Ivalisse Nieves. After the Fort Denaud ceremony, young Pedro played the haunting melody once again, at the LaBelle Veterans Memorial Park, where his mother has a memorial brick. The young man plays trumpet with the LMS band and has always wanted to honor his mother in this way. She died when Pedro was only three days old and is buried in the National Cemetery in Puerto Rico, under the service of her father, who served in the US Army 1970-72 in Viet Nam. Pedro, who wants to be a lawyer some day, also played on the football eld with the Broncos. Pedro learned Taps on his own, in hopes that one day he can play at his mother’s grave.

Yeomans Ave. LaBelle 863-675-2015www.spectaculareye.com 3 Caloosa Belle May 30, 2013 WASHINGTON The U.S. Small Business A dministration (SBA) is announcing today the SBA Veteran Pledge Initiative, a commitment by its top national, regional and community lenders to collectively increase their lending activity to veterans by ve percent per year for the next ve years. Often times, veterans face challenges in raising capital or have trouble receiving a conventional loan. With the support of SBA's top 20 national lending partners, and approximately 100 additional regional and community lending partners across the United States, SBA expects to assist an additional 2,000 veterans obtain loans to start or expand small businesses by increasing lending by $475 million over the next ve years. This equals a ve percent increase above historic veteran lending activity by the SBA. The initiative also complements SBA's existing partnership with the National Association of Development Companies (NADCO) V etLoan Advantage strategic initiative that offers small business nancing discounts and training to veterans who own businesses or are interested in small business ownership. "Our service men and women have made incalculable contributions and sacri ces for our country, and supporting them as they pursue their dreams to start or grow their own business is one of SBA's highest priorities," SBA Administrator Karen Mills said. "Through this partnership with national lending partners and regional and community lenders across the U.S., we stand ready to serve veteran entrepreneurs with loanguarantees, entrepreneurial training, and resources that are critical tools to help them start businesses, drive the local economy and create jobs for themselves and their communities. Veterans make up a large number of successful small business owners. Nine percent of small businesses are veteranowned. These 2.45 million veteran-owned businesses employ more than 5 million individuals. In the private sector workforce, veterans are more likely than those with no active-duty military experience to be self-employed. "According to the Florida Department of Veteran Affairs, more than 1.6 million veterans live and work here," said SBA South Florida District Director Francisco "Pancho' Marrero. "In scal year 2012, the South Florida District approved 31 Patriot Express loans for $2,597,300. With 18 Patriot Express loans approved for $2,089,400 this scal year, we are well on our way to exceeding last year's performance. This is a sign that veteran entrepreneurs are taking advantage of SBA resources to start and grow their own businesses and to create jobs." Administrator Mills is announcing the Initiative today at Ft. Bragg, NC, together with representatives of the SBA lending community from across the country, the U.S. Army and transitioning service members who have chosen to participate in SBA's Operation Boots to Business (B2B) Program, an initiative to train veterans and transitioning service members in business entrepreneurship.

Is there a Bible in your home? Maybe more than one? How about ve? More than that? Interested to learn of the American people's interest in the Bible? Check this out more than 13 million people viewed the premiere of the History Channel's miniseries, "The Bible." This TV production had double the amount of viewers as any program on NBC for February. The nal episode was seen by 11.7 million viewers, accelerating the History Channel to the top cable netw ork for March. The critics were more than stumped! They overwhelmingly predicted a dismal failure for the series. It seems producers, writers and movie makers in the mainstream media have lost touch with anything even resembling godliness in our society. The networks lack of support supportive of biblical principles, morals or values is glaringly apparent. It's true that our morals are substandard to what was the social norm a few decades ago. According to a recent Barna research report, 77 perent of Americans say the values and morals of America are declining. Why? A key answer, given by 32 percent of those surveyed, was "because of an absence of Bible reading." In Barna poll, 46% believe the Bible has little impact on American youth, and 56 percent believe the Bible has little impact on American society. However, 89% own at least one Bible! Even 59% of the people who "have no faith or are atheists" own a Bible. Sixty-one percent of adults "say they wish they read the Bible more" (down from 67 percent in 2011). The tremendous response of the public to the miniseries and the Barna research provide some hope. While the Bible does not hold the place of respect and honor it once did in our society, a large number of Americans are still interested in the bestselling book in history. The Bible miniseries on TV contains inaccuracies and omissions. But something that touches this many people can open the door for conversations that Christians might otherwise never have, especially since 27 percent of non-Christian adults tuned in to at least part of the series. This opportunity could open the door for discussing the Bible, leading to a conversation about Christ, the main person in Scripture. People need direction and meaning. God can give it to them through His Word. We are people of the Book. When we are given opportunities like a television program that attracts the attention and curiosity of so many, we must respond with great love and share the truth of God with people who are interested. Our opinions will not work. It is the Truth, written and incarnated, that sets people free from the bondage of sin and unbelief. One media critic wrote of the miniseries, "People are hungry for something like this." It may be that more people than we can imagine are open to hearing God's truth. Things may not be as bleak as they could be, and opportunities may be better than we realize. Today in our land we are still at liberty to read the Bible, or not, according to our own free-will. We are permitted to make movies concerning this most-popular book in all the world. It is at our own digression whether or not we pay our money to attention those movies. All of these civil liberties are a great privilege and are freedoms. At the front end of this article I asked i f you have a Bible. If, per chance you do not own one, call me, Les Morgan at our church of ce 863-675-HOPE and we will get one to you, free of charge, with no strings attached.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Do you have a Bible? American morals declining WASHINGTONA new report out today from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reveals that children younger than age 5 represent more than 75 percent of all pool and spa submersion deaths and 78 percent of pool and spa submersion injuries in the United States involving children younger than 15 years of age. Government data also show that AfricanAmerican and Hispanic children between the ages of 5 and 14 are at a higher risk of drowning. "Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children between the ages of 1 and 4 and minority children drown in pools at an alarming rate," said CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. "The lives of countless children can be saved this summer. Take simple safety steps todayteach all children to swim, put a fence around all pools, and always watch children in and around the water." CPSC's Pool Safely campaign is focusing its attention on populations most at risk of drowning: Children between the ages of 1 and 3 represented 67 percent of reported fatalities and 64 percent of injuries. African-American children between the ages of 5 and 19 are six times more likely to drown in pools than white and Hispanic children that age, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Data from USA Swimming indicate that 70 percent of African-American children and 62 percent of Hispanic children cannot swim, making them more likely to drown. The new CPSC Pool or Spa Submersions: Estimated Injuries and Reported Fatalities, 2013 Report shows annual averages of: 390 pool or spa-related drownings for children younger than 15 with 76 percent (296) of the victims being younger than 5; 5,100 pool or spa-related emergency department-treated submersion injuries for children younger than 15 with 78 percent (4,000) of the injured being younger than 5. CPSC Chairman Tenenbaum presented the annual Submersion and Entrapment reports for 2013 at an event today at the William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center in Washington, D.C.'s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Chairman Tenenbaum was joined by U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.-23); Suzy DeFrancis, Red Cross Chief Public Affairs Of cer, and Katey Taylor, mother of entrapment victim, Abbey Taylor. Jesus Aguirre, Director of the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, welcomed the group to the popular neighborhood pool. "As we head into summer and families across the country are getting ready to take their kids to the pool, we must remind everyone how important it is to keep a careful watch on our children as they swim and ensure that their pools and spas have proper safety equipment," said Rep. Wasserman Schultz. "Working together, we can improve the safety of all pools and spas b y increasing the use of layers of protection and promoting uninterrupted supervision to prevent child drowning and entrapment. With government programs like the CPSC's Pool Safely, people can learn simple steps to take to save lives." "Learning how to swim saves lives," said Suzy DeFrancis, Chief Public Affairs Of cer for the American Red Cross. "The American Red Cross encourages all families to enroll in Learn-to-Swim programs by contacting your local pool." Families can learn about Red Cross programs and nd water safet y tips by going to redcross.org. New data from CPSC's 2013 Submersion Report compile information on reported pool or spa-related drownings between 2008 and 2010 and estimated pool or spa-related injuries from 2010 through 2012 for children younger than 15. The estimated averages for the three-year periods represented show: Residential locations dominated incidents involving victims younger than 5 years of age; 85 percent of the fatalities occurred at residential pools or spas. About 50 percent of the injuries and 73 percent of the fatalities involving children younger than 15 years occurred at a residence. Of the reported pool fatalities for children younger than age 15, about 60 percent (231) occurred in in-ground pools; 15 percent (59) in above-ground pools, and nearl y 10 percent (37) in portable pools. There were no reported entrapment fatalities for 2012. The last recorded fatalit y of a child due to suction entrapment was in 2007. CPSC received seven reports of entrapment injury incidents during 2012. For the complete reports see: Pool and Spa Submersions 2013 and Circulation/Suction Entrapments 2013. The years for reported injury and fatality statistics differ due to a lag in fatality reporting. Teach children to swim, fence all pools

Volunteers work at VA clinics in Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte, including volunteer drivers representing Hendry, DeSoto, Collier, Charlotte and Highlands counties. Over 100 volunteers were recognized for their unsel sh devotion with different formal awards based on their hourly contributions. The majority of volunteers are veterans themselves who assist staff in seeing record numbers of veterans every year. Volunteers are critical in helping deliver quality care to veteran patients. This year, Millard Wagnon was presented with a certi cate signed by the director in recognition of 17 years of service for a total of 6,663 hours a tremendous amount of years of transporting veteran patients from Hendry County to their appointments at the Fort Myers VA Clinic for the American Legion. According to Jean Fisler, Voluntary Service Specialist, “the VA Volunteer Program has certainly bene ted over the years, along with our patients, with Millard’s continued assistance. His support of our Program, and the Kiwanis, has supplemented activities such as our Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon and Volunteer Holiday party. This year, he even sponsored our entertainment the Calendar Girls. This is noteworthy since these ladies speci cally entertain for donations to help support their charity Paws for Patriots in which active duty soldiers and retired servicemen and women receive service dogs. Without such donations from individuals and organizations, we would not be able to successfully have these activities.” In addition to Millard Wagnon, two other Hendry County volunteers were recognized for their efforts. Don Lownds, Van Coordinator, had 3,600 hours and Ron Costa had 500 hours. The Department of Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service VAVS Program, one of the largest volunteer programs in the Federal government, has provided 66 years of service to America’s veterans seeking care in VA healthcare facilities. In 2012, the combined total of volunteer time and donations exceeded $353 million. The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System’s Volunteer Program is the largest in VISN 8 serving Southwest Florida providing more than 189,000 hours of service across the healthcare system Hendry veterans service volunteers honored Submitted photo Bob Costa, transportation coordinator Don Lownds and Millard Wagnon.
