Thursday, June 27, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No. 26 City gears up for July 16 electionThe City of LaBelle will conduct its nonpartisan election July 16 to seat a Tax Collector-Commissioner. Incumbent Greg Bone is being challenged by political newcomer Brent Stevens. Early voting will begin on July 6 and continue to July 13, Saturday through Saturday, at the LaBelle Elections Of ce, 25 E. Hickpochee Ave. 9 a.m-5 p.m. A bsentee Ballots are available to be mailed to voters. Absentee Ballots will be available after July 10 for pickup. Anyone unable to vote their ballot without assistance beChallenger for the Tax Collector-Commissioner seat on the city commission, Brent Stevens has a vested interest in the City of LaBelle. Born and raised in LaBelle, he and his wife have established their family here. This 2005 LHS graduate earned his AA from ESC in 2008 and is currently working on a bachelors degree in public safety administration. He hopes to teach history ultimately. He has worked at several community-oriented jobs including doing IT for the Hendry County Clerk's Of ce, Hendry County EMT and has been with the LaBelle Fire Department for ve years. Currently he is a lieutenant. He also has own business, Peace of Mind, which installs surveillance video cameras for residences and businesses. This young man has been watching city government and feels the board has not been dealing with the problems residents face, often providing only a temporary solution. The answer to LaBelle's problems, he said, lies on what has always been one if its biggest strengths neighbors relying on neighbors. He feels strongly that, by working together, residents can solve problems and make life better for everyone. Volunteerism is the salve that doesn't cost anything but a little time. Practicing what he preaches, Mr. Stevens is a long time volunteer in LaBelle youth sports from LaBelle High School football and basketball, to Junior Pro basketball, Little League and Pop Warner. He volunteers for today's kids because, he said, "They did it for me." It's a tradition he wants to help LaBelle regain. From a seat on the board of commissioners, he hopes to challenge people to come out and help.

2 Caloosa Belle June 27, 2013 Both the people and the city need to be proactive, he said, when it comes to making life better for everyone. A simple drive through town will expose many of the issues he feels the commission should take on. His challenge to the people and the city government is to take the initiative. He w ants to inspire everyone to come out and help; to help through volunteering. It is incumbent upon everyone to do w hat you preach to make the town better, he said. Mr. Stevens said that LaBelle has lost its most cherished traditions from supporting its football team to supporting the Swamp Cabbage Festival. Those traditions are what made LaBelle special, he feels, and the town needs to revive them before they are lost forever. “Money does not control everything,” he said. “If you want someone to be involved, bring them in. Let them see what’s happening; what their tax money is paying for” The candidate has some de nite ideas. He feels the city should not be involved in building a golf course. A big proponent of programs for the youth, he said that’s w here the city needs to focus. He wants to see amenities like a small water park that everyone can come to enjoy. He also sees it as an opportunity to create jobs by attracting concessions. He also feels that, when residents ask questions, they deserve answers. He is also a big proponent of speed bumps to curb speeding through neighborhoods. People can be proactive, and very successful, in small ways. He also wants to make better use of other tools the city already has like code enforcement, planning and zoning. The city needs to set one-year and veyear goals; to attract more business to keep people in town. He said there’s a gap between baby boomers and young people. His generation needs to learn from the older people, but it will take the younger people with new ideas to take things to the next step. Communication is key in the entire effort to improve life in LaBelle. He puts it this way: “Inform, inform, inform . If we don’t work together as a community,” he said, “We will become Cain and Abel.” As a new commissioner, he said he would immediately have city employees relate their own job descriptions, as they see them, to help him understand their job. He would also ask them to anonymously write down their own problems and those they see in the city. The point would be to get an insight into the employees, how they see themselves as part of the entire city structure. It would be a starting place to improve relations with employees and to join together to improve things for everyone. He said he would ride with each employee to nd out what their job is, hear their issues. He wants to teach supervisors to work with employees not “over” them, to increase productivity. He said that jobs are not necessarily being done wrong, but could be done easier, faster, better. He sees the entire process as a morale booster for employees, residents and the city as whole. He also wants to set goals for employees, such as employee of month awards to build pride and ownership in individual workers. He fees that such measures would help decrease stress at work which decrease stress at home. His wife, Stacy, is a rst grade teacher at UES. The couple has a two-year-old daughter, Abigail. Although it’s true that each commissioner is only one of ve, each has the power to make a difference. For their part, residents need to speak up and “roll up their sleeves.” The entire community needs to be responsive. In short, Mr. Stevens’ vision is to see residents and city employees alike take responsibility for their town. He wants people to realize that, for every action there is a consequence, good or bad and feels that the time is right and that it will take new person on the board to “shake things up.” Candidate From Page 1 cause of blindness, loss of limb or illiteracy, should please contact the Supervisor of Elections.

Residents are urged to trim vegetation and remove yard waste before a storm threatens. Doing so can prevent branches and other yard waste from becoming dangerous projectiles during a hurricane. Many rural residents do not have access to county or commercial solid waste collection services for yard waste. Accordingly, rural residents have two options: (1) Self-hauling yard waste to neighborhood trash and recycling centers, or (2) Burning yard waste. Burning yard waste can be a cost-effective alternative to hauling debris away. Burning small amounts of yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service of cials to see if there are any restrictions in your area. Many people are not aware of Florida's outdoor burning regulations. Familiarize yourself with the burning regulations in your area. If you plan to burn, here a few tips to keep in mind: Never leave a re unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave. Keep a shovel and water hose handy. Do not burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent. Yard waste to be burned must be generated on the premises of the burn site. Fires must not cause smoke, soot, odors, visible emissions, heat, ame, radiation, or other conditions to the degree that they become a nuisance or safety hazard. Fires that become a nuisance or hazard must be extinguished immediately. Fires must be started after 9:00 a.m. and be out by one hour before sunset. Fires must be contained to an 8-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from your house, 50 feet from a paved public road and 150 feet from occupied buildings. If your re escapes you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. Wild res can occur year-round in Florida.

A rrest Reports Recently Hendry County residents have reported a postcard that states the recipient is eligible to receive $100.00 in gift savings only good at Wal-Mart or Target. These postcards are appearing in mailboxes around the county. Sadly, this is the gift (card) that keeps on givingright into the scammer's pockets. Postcards are being dropped into the mailboxes of residents in Hendry County telling them they are trying to reach them with exciting news about an unclaimed reward. They ask the recipient to call them at a toll free number to claim their gift card. The sender lists a claim number at the bottom of the card. Once you call the number listed, you are urged to provide a "Visa or MasterCard number to cover a processing fee of $6.95 for activation and shipping to your mailing address". This is a new twist on a familiar scam involving gift cards that used e-mail and text messaging in the past. Now it appears scammers are speci cally targeting seniors who may not be as integrated and active with texting and email communication. "Be suspicious of any contest or sweepstakes that asks for an upfront fee," said Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden. "Legitimate sweepstakes companies will not ask you to pay handling fees, taxes or other charges." Winning is free; a gift is something given willingly to someone without payment. Wal-Mart and Target have no connection with reward and gift savings sweepstakes and do not partner with agencies that encourage consumers to spend money on "sponsor offers" in the belief that they will eventually receive a high value gift card. However, after ful lling the "sponsor offers" the consumer may never even receive the gift card. Protect yourself: Do not provide personal information to claim "prizes" or sign up for "free trial". Never give your credit card number, social security number or bank account information to pay for fees, taxes, or shipping costs for anything that you may have won' or are getting for free'. A true sweepstakes will not make a winner pay fees. Beware of gift card scam Prepare now for hurricane season, burn yard waste

What does your church do for people? Have you ever thought about that? Churches probably do more than you’ve thought. It’s easy for us to forget how incredibly helpful the local church is in shaping and bene ting people’s lives. Let me encourage y ou about this for the next ve minutes. Without blinking, I thought of eight great, valuable favors people regularly receive at our church and churches like ours: 1. A church introduces people to the Wonderful Lord Jesus. People come to Christ in local churches in far greater numbers than anywhere else. Knowing Jesus is an eternity changer. Peace, forgiveness, purpose, hope and heaven come from Him. Put those on one end of a scale and nancial peace on the other and the tilt toward Jesus is overwhelming. 2. A church teaches people to read Scripture. Learning to read the Bible is like learning another language. The most important one! Scripture is God’s native tongue. Without it, we know only what God says through natural revelation such as owers, plants, the cycles of seasons, planets, etc… Without having a Bible would be like visiting Mexico with ve phrases of Spanish. Earth’s experiences are immeasurably richer when y ou know what God is saying to you. 3. A church teaches people to pray. Reading the Bible lets you listen to God. Praying lets you talk to Him. Most people say they would rather have direct access to God’s ears for whatever was troubling them than a healthy bank statement. 4. A church teaches people to serve. Jesus said he came not to be served, but to serve. So to teach people to approach others with a humble attitude and meet needs when possible is a Christ-like pattern to follow. We also teach people about spiritual gifts, and the rewards available in heaven to those who faithfully use their gifts to further God’s cause. Though it’s counter intuitive, service reaps invaluable bene ts in the character of the servant. That’s quite a favor! 5. A church teaches people to share their faith. Note: this is not to be confused with teaching people how to be obnoxious, insensitive and overbearing. However, it is extremely helpful to know someone who can pray for you, listen to you and assist you with questions about the true meaning of life, death, and facing God when you leave this world. Not only does evangelism introduce others to Jesus, in Philemon 6, Paul points out that our understanding of God’s goodness is expanded when we share our faith. It’s a perspective changer that’s priceless. 6. A church teaches people to give. Giving opens people to otherwise unattainable spiritual and material blessings. It breaks the hold of greed and it opens the oodgates of heaven. Imagine how shallow your life would be if you didn’t know how to give? 7. A church welcomes people into an extended family. Good churches are like good families. They have older aunts and uncles who wrap their arms around the hurting and counsel those in need. Small group members become brothers and sisters. Peers provide friendship, support and love. Whether a person is married or single, a church family is like a home for the holidays. What price tag would you put on that? 8. A church builds values into their children. Fifty-two weekends a year, while adults are learning about Scripture, prayer, service and giving, their children are learning lessons about faith and honesty and courage. As a dad, it is awesome to know that somebody helped me raise great children. The church does this like no other institution in the world. Indeed, churches are gifts to their communities. What’s true here is true in all 4.8 million churches in the world. Most of us have just never thought much about it. When we do, we sometimes take those favors for granted. A healthy local church is an immeasurable gift to its community! If yours offers hal f these bene ts, praise God for it! If you’ll take three minutes, I’ll bet you can come up with a better list than I did. When you do, thank God for your church! So, do you have a home church? Who is your pastor who loves after you, cares for and prays for you? Discouraging church leaders is one of Satan’s most frequent gambits. If it has been a while since you thanked your pastor, give him a call or send a card today. You may be surprised to learn how deep of an impact your kindness will be felt.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. 4 Caloosa Belle June 27, 2013 To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

If you produce sugar or think a domestic sugar industry is important, here’s some terrible news: America is sitting on a mountain of cheap sugar right now. Through a loophole in NAFTA, Mexico has ooded America with subsidized sugar, sending our surplus stocks to an all-time high of 2 million tons. For context, that is enough unneeded sugar to give every man, woman and child in the United States 14 pounds of sugar on top of what they are already consuming. With so much excess, it’s not surprising that sugar prices are nearing lows not seen since Ronald Reagan sat in the Oval Of ce. Unfortunately for grocery shoppers, this hasn’t translated to cheaper food, just bigger pro ts for food manufacturers. And unfortunately for farmers, there’s no end in sight to Mexico’s subsidize-and-dump approach. The Mexican government owns and controls about 20 percent of Mexico’s sugar industry, which is about 1 million tons of sugar a year. Coincidently, Mexico is now shipping more than 1 million tons to the United States every year even if it means intentionally shorting its own market. As a result of Mexico’s policies, sugar prices are a lot higher in Mexico, but Americans are having a hard time breaking into that market. In fact, my company has been unsuccessful in repeated attempts to sell sugar south of the border over the past few months. It is a case study in the one-sided nature of sugar trading around the world, and right now this inequity is threatening 142,000 U.S. sugar jobs and our nation’s ability to grow an essential ingredient here at home. Whether it’s government ownership in Mexico or Brazilians using three decades of subsidization to gain control of 50 percent of global exports, the sugar market is far too distorted. So how can we address this distortion and help a free market take hold? Some have suggested sending U.S. sugar farmers subsidy checks to level the playing eld. Sugar, which is currently the only major commodity not to receive subsidy checks, has politely declined these handouts. Others have advocated letting subsidized sugar overrun America and becoming dependent on foreign suppliers. Considering the food security implications with foreign food dependence, this unilateral disarmament idea has gained little traction. Sugar producers are pushing for a freemarket approach known within the industry as the zero-for-zero strategy. Under this concept the U.S. sugar industry has offered to give up its government policies as soon as foreign subsidies can be eradicated. This isn’t the rst time the zero-for-zero approach has been brought up. Sugar producers urged the elimination of all global subsidies and border protections 30 years ago when market manipulation was rst becoming prominent. The industry knew then, and knows today, it can thrive in a free market where the best businesspeople, not the most subsidized win. The question is, will the idea gain traction this time around at home and abroad? If not, Americans better get used to depending on Mexico and other bad actors around the world.

Be aware of construction vehicles entering and leaving the work zone and to use caution driving in this area. Project completion is estimated at end of year 2013. Three years ago this month, Kim Hamilton and Dr. Deborah Misotti sat at a booth at Forrey's Grill, here in LaBelle having lunch and discussing a vision they had for the y outh of Hendry and Glades County. They drew up a list of creative thoughts, visions and a plan for the future of the youth of Hendry and Glades Counties. Thus the group, now known as Youth Leadership Hendry Glades, came into existence. The true beginning of the organization fell to Kim Hamilton with the full backing of then State Representative Denise Grimsley, (now State Senator Grimsley) and Roger Harrison, then Economic Development Council Director. State Representative Matt Hudson has continued this support. Kim arranged the help of the 4 H, contact with the high schools and the basic logistics of the dif culties of bringing three and later four high schools of students together for a day each month. She planned around all of the school scheduled events, holidays, athletic practices and games, tests, eld trips and such to nd the perfect scheduled day for the classes to meet over the years. Kim's w ide acquaintance of the people of our area w as a valuable asset. The days for the students were planned with care, yet as with all things, occasionally life would enter into a situation and a ninety degree turn had to be made in scheduling, venue or speakers. This is where Dr. Misotti was able to ll in the gaps, with her network of friends and add some unique educational twists to the day. Dr. Misotti, as founder and Director of The Talkin' Monkeys Sanctuary, a Service Learning Center for colleges and universities around the world, was able to pull from her wealth of education and experience to ll in the blanks or show correlations of current issues to the pertinence in the student's daily lives. She stressed networking most importantly and strove to bring each of the speakers, elected of cials, CEOs and adults to a common bonding thread"The ability to give back the opportunities each have received during their lifetime to help others and how the variety of experiences broadens one's world." Sharing experience, knowledge and desires has always been a critical part of the philosophy behind the Youth Leadership experience. Kim and Dr. Misotti used this method to deepen the experiences by asking the fellow facilitators from 4-H, Sonja Crawford, Liz Shaw and Dr. John Huysmann of Glades County Schools to become involved in the agenda planning for the days. This brought a wealth of information and experience to the table. During the rst year, other surrounding counties were copying this experience rich plan for the youth of their counties. Kim was called upon to consult with other counties to help to develop youth leaderships in their areas. Dr. Misotti had become a published author and is lecturing around the world. The horizons broadened not only for the students, but for the founders of the program as well. The third class of youth leadership members from our area schools graduated along with the adult leadership class this past week at the lovely clubhouse of the Glades Resort. One of their Pioneer Youth Leadership graduates and now a sophomore at USF, Cynthia Rosario was a guest speaker. She spoke to the new graduates about her experience in the program, its life changing ability and the camaraderie which she still has with its founders. Cynthia encouraged the new graduates to maintain the relationship with their mentors because she had found it helpful and bene cial in her future. There were prizes for several students. Points earned through the program for asking questions, following the rules, innovative practices, altruism and other positive practices resulted in one student, Keyron Reid, receiving a Samsung Notebook as high point winner! South Florida Works has given a $500 scholarship each year and this year was no exception. The students were requested to submit essays on their experiences in Youth Leadership and an independent group reviewed them and voted to award the scholarship to Monica Llossas. The surprise of the evening was the addition of one scholarship awarded by an anonymous group of women who had approached Ms. Hamilton after the youth graduation last year and requested an opportunity to give their own scholarship of $250 to the second place essayist this year. This award went to Keyron Reid. It is now evident this young man is a force to be reckoned with as Keyron also took home the LaBelle Rotary Award and Scholarship S4TL, Students 4 Tomorrows Leaders! The evening was bittersweet for both Kim and Dr. Misotti. This was their last class as facilitators. The two have tendered their resignations citing new horizons and more plans for the future of Hendry County. The y have turned this program over to the Economic Development Council, intact as a successful and well respected program. #1 OFFICE LOCATION in LABELLEPut your name on the building/or sign on Main Street • Adjacent to McDonald • Across from Courthouse Wi-Fi• Ground Floor • Private Entrance & Bath • Parking and Windows GaloreDetails at www.88mainstreet.com 863-673-5071 Owner 3,300* Feet • Will Divide 1,800* Feet • 700* Feet •800* Feet YOUR NAME HERECommunity Bulletins8 8SOUTH MAIN F O R ENT FOR E N T BUY ONE COMPLETE PAIR GET 50% OFF A SECOND PAIRFree eye exam with purchase of designer frame (min of $100) & lensesSpectacular EyecareDr. Allison R.

The story may have given some viewers the false impression that all people with disabilities working for Goodwill earn less than the Federal minimum wage while its executives are personally pro ting. This could not be further from the truth. Allow me to assure you that Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida does not hold the Minimum Wage certi cate. All of our 700+ employees earn over the Florida state minimum wage of $7.79 per hour. In fact, for the last several months, our organization has been conducting an extensive wage and salary survey to ensure that our employees in every position, including our leadership team, are earning a wage competitive with people in similar jobs across the region. Hundreds of our employees will see pay increases in the coming months as a result of this study. While it is true that some Goodwill organizations are among the 3,400 employers nationwide that use the wage certi cate, every Goodwill agency makes decisions about services and employment policies based on the community's needs, available resources and its organizational capabilities. The services and employment opportunities we provide at Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida don't fall in line with the use of the certi cate. Our Goodwill agency serves Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties with programs and services that provide opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages to become more independent. These programs include ADA-approved barrier-free housing; the Goodwill L.I.F.E.

Summer is just getting started and the temperatures are climbing, so with concerns about children in hot vehicles, the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle joined the Kiwanis Clubs of Florida, Division 19 in sponsoring a program called “Not Even for a Minute: NEVER Leave Children Unattended in a Car!” Over the y ears, there have been heartbreaking stories about children that have died from heat stroke while trapped in a vehicle. These cases happen when kids are left unattended in a hot car. Sometimes because the driver forgot the child was there, or when kids get into unlocked cars without an adult knowing it happened. Within minutes, the child can be in danger. Did you know that a child’s body heats up three to ve times faster than an adult’s? It’s true; it only takes a few short minutes before a child can become dangerously overheated. Many people may not realize that in just 10 minutes, a car’s temperature can increase by 19 degrees, and continues to rise as each minute goes by. Studies have shown that leaving the windows cracked open in a car doesn’t help to slow the heating process nor does it decrease the highest temperature reached inside in the vehicle. Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, even with the window slightly open. Think about it…the sun shining through the car’s windows can make the car work like an oven! Routine schedules and distractions have caused people to mistakenly leave children behind in cars. To help prevent this, place your lunch box, cell phone, purse, briefcase, gym bag or whatever you normally take into your workplace or home from the car, in the back seat or on the oor in front of a child in a car seat. This may help you to remember the child when you open the rear door and reach for your belongings. A child might be asleep, so don’t always count on “noise” from the child to remind you of their presence. Please call 911 immediately if you see an unattended child in a car. Please never leave your child alone in a car, not even for one minute. It seems like an innocent act to leave a child in a back seat while you make a quick run into a store to pick up a fe w things; however, this is dangerous because it only takes a few minutes to put your child at risk. The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle distributed window decals to local agencies that interact with parents and children. Parents can put the decals on their vehicle as another reminder to never leave a child unattended in a car! 6 Caloosa Belle June 27, 2013 Gardner Swift Nightingale, 93LABELLE Gardner Swift Nightingale died at home in Mass., Tuesday, June 18, 2013.

Charles White of Clewiston is an Agricultural Unit Sergeant with the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce and was elected as President of the Florida Agricultural Crimes Intelligence Unit (FACIU) at their annual training seminar in Daytona Beach on May 16. FACIU is a Non-Pro t organization made up of law enforcement of cers in the specialized eld of agricultural related crimes investigations with the purpose of sharing information on crimes affecting the agricultural communities throughout the great State of Florida. The Intelligence Unit began in 1978 with the gathering of agricultural deputies from several counties along with the Of ce of Agricultural Law Enforcement. By 1980, these meetings evolved into an intelligence exchange unit known as the Florida Citrus and Cattle Intelligence Unit. In 1985, the organization changed its name to the Florida Agricultural Crimes Intelligence Unit. Ag Deputies are responsible for the investigation of a wide variety of farming, ranching and agricultural related crimes that can be anything from theft of livestock, plants, farm equipment, fuel or metal to trespassing, improper use of four-wheelers, illegal dumping, loose livestock on the highway and animal cruelty. The Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce offers a county-wide farm/ ranch watch program that works in the same way as a neighborhood crime watch. The Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce has two full time Ag Deputies and three part-time Reserves that are hands-on with ranchers, farmers and land owners introducing ways to secure equipment, sheds, vehicles, produce and livestock in order to deter crime. Sergeant White began his law enforcement career in 1978 as a Fish and Wildlife Of cer, serving in Broward, Collier and Hendry County. In 1982, he joined US Sugar as Captain of Security. In 1998, this Captain of Security was converted into a contracted law enforcement position through the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce where White continued serving as an Agricultural Investigator and in 2009 was promoted to Sergeant of the Ag Unit. Sergeant White said he is honored to serve as the unit’s President and proud to represent Hendry County. White has been a member of FACIU since 1984 and served as last year’s President of the Southern States Livestock and Recovery Enforcement Association, which consists of Law Enforcement Of cers across the Nation. White’s rst action, as FACIU President was for the unit to participate in the Florida Cattlemen’s Association Convention in Marco Island during the week of June 17th – June 21st. The Florida Agricultural Crimes Intelligence Unit website partnered with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and is shared under the Florida Fusion Center Network site. If you are looking for an Ag Deputy in your county or wish to join FACIU, contact your local law enforcement agency and ask to speak with one of their Ag Deputies.

When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors! Summer is the peak season in Florida for one of the nation’s deadliest weather phenomena – lightning. Lightning accounts for more average deaths per year than tornados and we have people working outdoors in this county every day. Remember, the safest place to be during lightning activity is a large enclosed building. If you are away from a building, the second safest location is an enclosed metal v ehicle, car, van, etc., but not a convertible, bike or other topless or soft top vehicle. If caught outdoors, and no shelter is nearby, stay away from tall trees. Crouch in the open, keeping twice as far away from a tree as the tree is tall. Historically, the months of June, July, and A ugust are the deadliest months for lightning strikes in South Florida. This is due to the combination of our region’s near daily thunderstorms and the plethora of outdoor activities held during this time when children are out of school. Nevertheless, lightning is a threat yearround in South Florida.Lightning safety tips for inside the home include: Avoid contact with corded phones.  Avoid contact with electrical equipment or cords. If you plan to unplug any electronic equipment, do so well before the storm arrives.  Avoid contact with plumbing. Do not wash your hands, take a shower, wash dishes, or do laundry.  Stay away from windows and doors; stay off porches.  Do not lie on concrete oors nor lean against concrete walls.

Summer advice: When thunder roars, go indoors! by Pat DobbinsAs we head into the summer, temperatures keep will keep rising. The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties want you to be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke become more common in very humid environments. High humidity reduces the effectiveness of sweating and cooling the body. To avoid becoming dehydrated, it is important to drink plenty of uids (especially water) even if you don’t feel thirsty. Signs of dehydration include thirst, weakness, nausea, muscle cramps, headache, and feeling dizzy or light headed. Warning signs of heat exhaustion can vary, but may include the following:  Heavy sweating  Paleness  Muscle cramps  Tiredness or weakness  Dizziness and/or fainting  Headache  Nausea or vomiting  Your skin may be cool and moist  Your pulse rate may be fast and weak  Your breathing may be fast and shallow When heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat stroke. Try to cool of f and seek medical attention if symptoms get worse or if the symptoms last longer than one hour. Here are some ways to help prevent heat exhaustion or heat stroke:  Drink lots of water or drink cool, nonalcoholic beverages  Wear lightweight and light-colored clothing  eek an air-conditioned location when possible Take a cool shower or bath  Do not engage in strenuous activities when you know temperatures are at high levels Plan ahead. If you know that you will be outside for extended periods of time, please be sure to have water available. Get into the habit of drinking water throughout the da y (not just when you feel like you have a dr y mouth).

ORLANDO, Fla. „ If youre planning to sell your home, remember that “ rst impressions count. A home with curb appealŽ invites buyers to step out of their vehicles and begin their tour of the property. In todays market, its a price war and beauty contest,Ž says Courtney Silverman, a Realtor with The Keyes Companys Weston of“ ce in South Florida. Here are four simple ways Silverman and other Realtors suggest sellers refresh their yards to make a lasting “ rst impression. € Remove the Clutter „ Pick up any toys, bicycles, or yard equipment and store them in your garage. Park any spare vehicles down the street to ensure an unobstructed view of your home. Clean the porch by sweeping it, pressure washing, and adding a welcome mat or ” ag. € Give Your House a Facelift „ Update your door. Whether you repaint it or replace it, a fresh door welcomes the buyer into the home. Replace or clean your doorbell and address numbers. Paint the trim and shutters around your house. Clean windows, doors, and rain gutters to refresh the appearance of your home. € Update Your Landscaping … Keep a wellmanicured lawn and consider adding some fresh elements, such as bright ” owers, shrubs, new mulch or small accent plants. Trim back any overgrown trees or shrubs that could block the view of your home. € Take Care of the Small Details … Remove the cobwebs and bugs from around your porch and door. Sweep away any leaves or lawn debris. Taking care of the small details, like chips in the paint or a wasps nest can make the difference between a warm welcome and a not-so-pleasant entrance. By cleaning and updating the exterior of your home, you can make your house stand out from the others on the block. My father told me, One never has a second chance to make a “ rst impression,Ž says Silverman. The same applies to properties for sale. So, take the time to make the front of your home as attractive as possible. Its the “ rst step toward a successful sale.
