TALLAHASSEE – For the start of the 2013 A tlantic Hurricane Season on June 1, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) urges all Floridians to “Know Your Zone.” Knowing your evacuation, storm surge, and ood zone is an important step to ensuring you and your family are prepared for a hurricane. “Knowing your evacuation zone, and how storm surge or ooding may affect you is an important part of preparing for hurricane season,” said FDEM Director Bryan W Koon. “When you plan for and mitigate these hazards, you can lessen the impact a storm may have on you and your family.” Evacuation zones are designated by local emergency management agencies, and give guidance on when certain areas should or are required to evacuate prior to a hurricane making landfall. It is important that residents of coastal counties know their evacuation zone, as well as the route they should take should they need to evacuate. Storm surge zones and ood zones show of cials and residents how certain amounts of storm surge or ood waters may affect coastal or low-lying areas. Storm surge is extreme coastal ooding that can penetrate several miles inland. Storm surge and ooding are two of the most dangerous impacts of a tropical system and all Floridians should be prepared for possible effects to themselves and their communities. Floridians can nd their local evacuation, storm surge and ood maps on the public mapping page of oridadisaster.org. Maps are also available via the Division’s geospatial mapping tool, GATOR, at oridadisaster. org/GATOR. The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1–November 30.

Have you ever heard these words coming out of your mouth: “I am stressed out”? Maybe that is a phrase that is voiced often by you or others who share the space under the same roof. If you were to list one main cause of stress in your life, what would it be? Perhaps there are multiple causes of anxiety in your life right now, each one jockeying for the rst place position of pressure. A recent survey states there are the ve main sources of stress among Americans today: (1) Money: According to the American Psychological Association’s most recent annual Stress in America survey, 75% of those surveyed said money was a signi cant source of stress in their lives. (2) Work: The APA reports that a third of workers in the U.S. selfidentify that they are living with extreme stress. Half of workers also note that stress has an unpleasant effect on their personal lives and careers. (3) Relationships: con ict and communication breakdown. (4) Health issues and (5) Change: major life changes are very stressful especially the death of a loved one, marriage, moving, changing jobs and so forth. Etymologically, the word “stress” comes from the Latin word strangaria meaning to bind tight or to constrict. Stress, then, can be de ned as a state of mental, emotional and physical tension. Stress can come from external circumstances or internal attitudes. However, no matter if tension is in a person’s life because of external or internal issues, the strain is real and can be consuming. What do you do when you feel stressed? Do you internalize it? Do you vent on others? Do you feel overwhelmed? Do you procrastinate? These are all ineffective ways of dealing with stress. Stress can be dangerous and drive people to do desperate things if they don’t know how to handle it. It is interesting to note that when God created the human body He designed it to experience stress and react to it appropriately. For example, stress can be positive, keeping us alert and ready to avoid danger. Yet, stress can become negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between these challenges. As a result, an individual becomes overworked and stress-related tension builds. Stress that continues without relief can lead to distress -a negative reaction. Distress can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases. Stress also becomes harmful when people use alcohol, tobacco, or drugs to try and relieve their stress. Unfortunately, instead of relieving the anxiety and returning the body to a relaxed state, these substances tend to keep the body in a stressed state and cause more problems. So, what are we to do? Who or what can usher in some relief? Writers of various Bible passages not only show that they experienced various levels of tension in their personal lives, but also disclosed that, as fellow human beings, they found a sense of stability amidst the inner turmoil. The hope they reveal from the struggles in their day is equally tting for our day. Here are some examples of Bible passages that, if applied to one’s life, will be assuring, and calming. 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been full y understood. 1 Corinthians 16:13 Be watchful, stand rm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed every day. For this slight momentary af iction is preparing for us an eternal weight o f glory beyond all comparison, because we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be in dread of them: for it is the LORD your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.” Ephesians 3:17-21… that Christ ma y dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you ma y be lled with all the fullness of God. No w to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen. Isaiah 40:31 but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. To keep your stress down you need to lift you Bible up… and read it! Trust God with every situation you face. Do what you can do and leave the rest to God! God promises us, “I will keep him (or her) in perfect peace whose mind is xed on me because he trusts in me” (Is. 26:3-4). Are you trusting or stressing? If we can trust God with our eternal salvation we can trust him with our temporary situation.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80 across the street from City Hall. Keep your stress level down, lift your Bible up… and read it! This storm season, homes and businesses in LaBelle are expected to bene t from upgrades to the local electric system. Florida Power & Light Company has started work on strengthening local power lines and equipment so they better withstand intense storms and improve everyday reliability.2013 Work in LaBelleFPL’s local improvements this year focus on reinforcing a main power line serving the local 911 center, water and sewage treatment plants and additional county and municipal resources in LaBelle, including Hendry County Fire-EMS. The upgrades will make the system stronger against powerful winds and help the area return to normal more quickly following storms. The strengthening project started in January and is expected to be completed in June. Other local improvements in and near LaBelle in 2013 include clearing vegetation from 100 miles of power lines. “Although FPL delivered its best reliability on record in 2012, we’re always working to make it even better,” said Charlotte Miller, FPL external affairs manager. “We’re upgrading our systems across Florida that serve critical local facilities – hospitals, police and re stations and others – as well as major thoroughfares and commercial areas. Upgrading the power lines and equipment serving these community resources in LaBelle will improve reliability and help us restore service faster following major storms.” A Long-Term CommitmentThe 2013 projects are the latest in a series of improvements FPL has made in and near LaBelle since the last major hurricane season in 2005. Since then, FPL has:  Inspected all existing utility poles (13,130), restoring or replacing those that no longer met the company’s standards for strength.  Cleared 1,050 miles of power lines of trees and vegetation – a major cause of power ickers and outages.  Inspected 10 main power lines using an advanced infrared camera to evaluate lines and equipment – and help us address issues before they cause outages. Since 2006, FPL has invested more than $1 billion across its 35-county service area – in addition to its other ongoing system maintenance and improvement work – to make the electric grid stronger.

FIND YOUR NEW HOME HERE Buying a House is an exciting time for most people. A fresh start in a new home brings with it a lot of hope and promise for the future. Consider these tips as you embark on your venture: 1. Connect with a Quali“ ed Tour GuideŽ. Purchasing a home is a lot of work Eliminate a lot of stress, by working with a professional real estate agent to orchestrate showings, inspections, appraisals, contracts, a d negotiations. Talk to people that you trust and get recommendations, “ nd an agent with the right chemistry. 2. Get Preapproved With A Lender. Without a preapproval letter you are nothing more than a dream buyer; and no seller will negotiate the best deal with a dream buyer. Plus, knowing how much you will be able to borrow from the lender will help you stay realistic when it comes to the purchase price. 3. Know the Difference Between Your Needs and Wants. We all like to dream about our perfect home, but for most of us, our dreams dont usually equal reality. Your budget will dictate to a large extent how much of your dream you will be able to reach, so prioritize a homes features by their level of importance. 4. Dont Look at Too Many Homes. Many home buyers “ nd themselves feeling overwhelmed and confused after a long day of touring homes. Be reasonable when scheduling showings, to many homes in a short period of time and everything will run together in your mind. 5. Get an Inspection! Unless you are a home inspector or building contractor by trade, your skills will only get you so far, so hire an impartial professional inspector. A good inspector will run test to determine the status of many systems, and will identify problems and recommend repairs. Inspections cost up-front but can save you thousands in the long run. Now is the time to buy a new home, interest rates are low and home prices are only going to go up from here. Stop by Southern Heritage for a list of the available inventory.

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle When the Cowboys take the eld next fall, it will be under a new head football coach. Christopher Siner is no stranger to this area and he has faced off against the Cowboys many times. During his own high school days he wore the uniform of a Mariner Triton and graduated from there in 1994. He headed off to Florida State Unversity. In spite of his love of football, he was just too small for their football program. After graduating from FSU in 1999 with a degree in physical education, he went to work at Pinecrest Elementary in Immokalee as a PE teacher. That's where he met his wife Naomi, a speech pathologist, She is now at Immokalee's Eden Park Elementary. The couple and their two boys still live there. Like many young men, Coach Siner counts his own dad among his top in uences. His dad coached Pop Warner in Chris' hometown of Cape Coral for years. He spent ten years on the legendary John Weber's coaching staff at IHS. He said he was attracted to Immokalee because it was close to home. Chris was the freshman coach at IHS for two years, coached wide receivers and defensive backs and eventually became offensive coordinator for the Indians. He was part of the Indians team that brough the 2004 state championship home. He spent the last three years coaching at his alma mater, Mariner, before coming to LaBelle. Taking over at the very end of the year May 1 was his rst day Coach Siner is already excited about the interest LaBelle athletes have drawn from college coaches. Coach Siner can speak about the Cowboys with the eye of a former adversary. He said the LHS football program has always elded teams that were very prepared. He was impressed with LaBelle's coaches and players. He noted that LHS seems to have big, strong players but often falls short on speed. The talent differs from year to year on any team, he said, but the staff must nd ways to balance the scales. Playing teams like Immokalee and Clewiston are good mearsuring sticks of where the team is, but Coach Siner is more concerned about district games, in order to meet the primary goal making it into the playoffs. Coach Siner wants to build his team to "play physical, play hard, play smart." He said any coaching staff has two jobs: to put kids in the best possible position on the eld, but also off the eld. Football can help young men learn to deal with stress off eld and it's also important for these players to be active off the eld, to mold them into prductive citizens who understand team work and can deal with adversity. Looking at the program with a fresh eye, Coach Siner feels it's been in good hands with Jordan Odaffer. The foundation has been laid. He also thinks highly of LaBelle's past performances two very good runs under Ron Dunbar and his staff, who brought consistency to the program to build a winner. This summer will be important in building the Cowboy team. Players will work hard in the weight room and at football camps, especially at Ave Maria. Coach Siners hopes to take his players to as many places as possible. He wants to build their experience so area coaches know them. Fundraisers, like the recent watermelon sale, are very important to the program so the team can attend these camps. He wants athletes with a commitment to LaBelle, to football and to being good citizens. He looks forward to building a team the community will be proud of. Coach Siner said he is very happy to be at LaBelle High school. "My goal has always been (coaching in) a small town. This is what I always wanted to do, where I always wanted to do it."

Bridge Street LaBelle, FL 33935 (863) 675-0224 9 Caloosa Belle June 6, 2013 Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSpecial lives memorializedAmerican Legion Post 130 once again placed memorial bricks at the Veterans Memorial Park, Saturday, May 18. The bricks pay mute homage to American vetarans with local ties, many of whom shouldered more than their fair share of the burden of freedom. This time the veterans laid down a brick for Greg Sorensen, Legionnaire and Past Direct of the Legion Riders. In memory of his “big heart,” good friend Patti Nixon represented the Sorensen family, which is in Minnesota. Former Post 130 Commander Tony Alvarez commented that remembering those who are gone is a “pure and thankless” task, but one considered an honor by the American Legion. The family of Harriet Banks placed a brick in her memory at the Veterans Memorial Park Saturday, May 18. Ms. Banks was originaly from New York and from 1942-43 was a real life “Rosie the Riverter” at Bell Aircraft, supporting the war effort. She had been a strong member of the American Legion Auxiliary and DAV Auxiliary. Her daughter, Gloria Kirkland, witnessed the event along with her ten-year-old grandson, Spencer (Harriet’s greatgrandson). Ms. Kirkland said of her mother, “Her blessings were her children all children.” To all who knew her, Anne Neely was a little powerhouse with a big heart and boundless energy. Her friends remembered their “loving and giving” friend May 18 by placing a brick in her honor at the LaBelle Veterans Park. “The Lunch Bunch” from LaBelle Middle School recalled Anne’s service to the children of LaBelle during her years as a paraprofessional with the school district and to her fellow district employees through HESPA.

Twenty Southwest Floridians with special needs made lifelong friends during the second session of Trailways Camp in LaBelle. Trailways camp is a partnership between Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida and The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund. “Our vision when we created the Robert V and Benjamin G. Miller Fund was to honor our sons by developing camp experiences that turn life into living for adults with disabilities,” says Sharon Miller, of the Robert V & Benjamin G. Miller Fund. “Our relationship with Goodwill has begun to make this happen. We love working with the Goodw ill team and we are lled to the brim with peace and satisfaction when we see the joy and hear the laughter of our campers.” The session, which ran from May 6 through May 9, included shing, camp re roasts, a visit by Special Equestrians, swimming, a talent show, a luau, and more. The camp was held at the Riverside Retreat Center in LaBelle. “Many of our campers had never own a kite, held a shing rod, danced on stage, or won an award in their lives,” says Jesi Cason, camp counselor and skills trainer at Goodwill. “At camp, everyone got a chance to create unforgettable experiences and make lifelong friendships with people who understand what it is like to have a disability.” The Trailways Camp mission is to remove the social isolation often felt by people with disabilities by providing opportunities for fun, friends and support. Through outdoor activities, group exercises, crafts, and more, campers have the opportunity to develop recreational skills and build relationships. “An act as simple as sitting down for a meal with friends, or roasting marshmallows over a camp re can, and has, changed lives for people who otherwise would not have the opportunity,” explains Cason. “The campers will always remember the feeling of accomplishment and acceptance they experienced when they lead a group of campers in song, or challenged their friends to an epic water noodle ght!” Trailways Camp will host another session October 7 through 11, 2013. For more information regarding Trailways Camp visit www. goodwillsw .org/trailwayscamp/ or contact Todd Ryan at (239)995-2106 ext. 2285. About The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund Sharon and Jerry Miller started a Donor Advised Fund in Central Texas after their son Robert passed away in late 2005 from complications stemming from a rare neonatal disorder. Robert and his brother Ben both enjoyed camp experiences as children and young adults in Michigan. More and more the Miller’s observed the social isolation and barriers to relationships that developed as children with special needs passed through school experiences, became adults, and their families aged. The Millers reside in West Rocks in Sanibel. They have funded and led development of camps for adults with special needs since 2007. In 2011 they established The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund at the SW Florida Community Foundation, and created an Advisory Group that has led local design and development of Trailways Camps. More information about the Fund and the SW Florida Community Foundation, a second key partner which administers the Fund, can be obtained by contacting Sarah Owen, Executive Director, at (239)274-5900. About Goodwill Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. helps people with disabilities and disadvantages overcome their barriers to employment and independence in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry, and Glades Counties. In 2012, more than 30,000 Southwest Floridians received assistance from Goodwill, ranging from Job-Link services to disabilityaccessible housing, the Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy charter school for students with developmental disabilities, career guidance and mentoring programs for teens, and the SWFL MicroEnterprise project, a small business education program.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 29, 2013) – To help educate the public on ways to prevent falls, health care experts with Lee County Injur y Prevention Coalition’s Step WiseLee program and Lee Memorial Trauma Services are hosting a free program on Wednesday, June 12, at 10:30 a.m. at the Barron Library, 461 Main St. in LaBelle, Fla. The presentation will focus on steps for preventing falls. Topics to be covered include:  Ways to improve balance and gait to prevent falls  How medications and side effects can lead to falls  How vision problems can contribute to falls  Steps to increase exercise and reduce fall risk  Information on “Moving for Better Balance Classes”  Blood pressure and risk of falls  How to reduce risks around the home “Falls are both unintentional and preventable,” says Mark Tesoro, Injury Prevention Educator/Analyst for Trauma Services at Lee Memorial Health System. “Through education, risk assessment and free health care screenings, we continue to raise awareness of preventive measures that can keep seniors safe.” Often the result of a hazard or a precipitating medical event, falls can result in hip fractures, head trauma or even death. From tripping over a computer cord to stumbling down stairs, falls can happen in young children, healthy adults and even athletes. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), falls occur more often in senior adults and are the leading cause of injury deaths in persons over 65 years o f age. However, falls are not a normal, natural part of aging. Studies show that a combination of interventions can signi cantly reduce falls in the older adult population. Experts recommend the following key steps to reduce the risk o f falls:  Begin a regular exercise program  Make your home safer by clearing walkways and hallways  Have your vision checked  Have your health provider review your medications The “Step WiseLee” initiative began in Sept. 2009 to unite local health care agencies, residents, family and friends to collaborate in preventing falls and fall-related injuries and deaths in Lee County. For a more detailed checklist on how you can help prevent falls and fall-related injuries and deaths, visit www.stepwiselee.com. About The Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition: The Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition has been working to prevent injuries in Lee County since 1995 under the auspices of the Lee County Health Department.
