by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their July 23 meeting, county commissioners opted to keep the preliminary TRIM gure (the working gure counties use to set the nal millage rate every year) to 7.7029. That is the same amount as for this scal year. Commissioner Don Davis had suggested an additional .5 mills be added so the board will have a little "wiggle room" in considering the nal millage rate. However, that option was set aside with a nal 4-1 vote. Commissioner Janet Taylor was the lone dissenter. Now that it has been set as a working gure, the nal millage rate may ultimately be lowered from that amount, but it cannot be increased. Current scal year 2012-13 comes to a close September 30. The public hearing dates suggested by County Adminstrator Charles Chapman County sets prelimiary TRIM Thursday, August 1, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No. 31 Hendry County Schools have received their 2012-13 grades from the Department of Education.

Mr. Puletti explained that, if you look at the whole picture, LaBelle Elementary School has actually improved and is rebounding. Country Oaks is a tradiationally high performance school but lost ground according to the state's grades. He said the school district is very pleased that Upthegrove Elementary maintaned its B. He expressed disapointment in LaBelle Middle School's grade, saying "It shouldn't be a D." He went on to say that LMS' Algebra 1 end of course scores were very good, w ith a 70 percent passing rate. In the Clewiston area, the district is very happy that Eastside Elementary retained its B, saying they are very "proud of what they've done." Central Elementary slipped to a B from an A and Westside stayed at a C. At Clewiston Middle School, the only Hendry school that got an F, Mr. Puletti said the district has its work cut out for it, looking at ways of increasing scores performance levels. High School grades will not be available until the fall. The superintendent said the district is "looking at everything" to improve the scores and he is working with principals and administration. The district will be doing assessments and adjustments, he said. The new Common Core curriculum will be fully implemented this year. Mr. Puletti said there are a lot of misconceptions about the program, but also some valid points. Basically, he noted, Common Core is an infusion of reading into courses not traditionally heavy on reading like science, math and social studies. Mr. Puletti feels that Hendry's increases are not counted in this grading system, which based on the Florida Comprehensive Academic Test (FCAT), but "We're not where we'd like to be."

(July 26, 2013) – Continuing their tradition of corporate philanthropy, The Bonita Bay Group is sponsoring its 40th Habitat for Humanity home. It’s one of two homes sponsored by the company this year. T he Bonita Bay Group began supporting Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties with its rst home sponsorship in the year 2000. The fortieth home, located on Gunn Circle in Port LaBelle, is one of two homes Habitat built in Hendry County during this scal year. The modest three-bedroom home will make a big difference in the lives of the Solis family. Jesus, Marla and their four children have been living in a two-bedroom, single-wide trailer. “This means a better future for our children,” said Solis. “It is a dream come true.” Through the use of volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat homes are sold to the homeowners with an interest-free mortgage and monthly payments set at less than 30 percent of the homeowner’s income, making homeownership an affordable reality. Habitat homeowners must qualify nancially for the program; they are required to save $1,200 toward their closing costs; attend classes focusing on homeownership, budgeting and home maintenance; and complete 250 hours of “sweat equity” by volunteering at Habitat. “We could not accomplish what we do without the dedication and generosity of companies like The Bonita Bay Group,” said Habitat CEO Kitty Green. “The people that have galvanized to support our mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope for families in need have contributed literally millions of dollars and through their efforts built scores of homes. “We are very grateful to The Bonita Bay Group for sponsoring this home, and to all of the volunteers who worked on it.” For more information on home sponsorship or to volunteer, call (239) 652-0434 or visit www.habitat4humanity.org.

The needs assessment consists of demographic, socioeconomic and health status information that will be used to identify areas w here targeted interventions and policy changes may have the greatest impact. Once community needs are identi ed through quantitative data analysis of demographic, socioeconomic and health status information, and qualitative interviews, the strategic planning process can begin. The demographic, social and economic characteristics of a community can strongly in uence the community's health status and related service needs. These indicators should be a primary consideration when designing and developing any system of care within the region. The assessments include information such as: Demographic data such as population, age, race, ethnicity and gender Socioeconomic data such as income, poverty, unemployment and education Health status information such as maternal and infant health data including birth rates, low birth weight, teen births, prenatal care, immunizations and infant death. Other health information such as leading causes of death, chronic diseases, communicable diseases, hospitalizations and emergency room visits Health Resources such as: Medicaid, Uninsured, Physicians and Facilities, Federal Health and Professional Shortage Designations Social and Mental Health such as: Suicides, Crime and Domestic Violence and Baker Act. These assessments are completed with community input which includes Interviews with Community Leaders and some assessments also include results from Focus Groups with Community Members. A copy of the community health assessments can be found at the Health Planning Council of Southwest Florida website: http://www.hpcswf.com/health-planning-services/community-health-assessments/ Other information can be found on the Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Networ k website: http://www.lorhn.org/ Community health assessments completed for Hendry, Glades Patricia Dobbins TALLAHASSEE For the rst time this year, the Florida Legislature included personal computers and accessories as school supplies for Florida's kids during the Backto-School Sales Tax Holiday. Retailers are expecting that to give the popular tax holiday a signi cant boost this year, as families take advantage of tax savings and markdowns, said Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the Florida Retail Federation. As in previous tax holidays, clothing and shoes up to $75 will be tax exempt, along with school supplies up to $15 from August 2 to 4. In addition, personal computers and accessories selling for up to $750 will be tax free. "Most families in Florida own a computer of one type or another, and we expect that many will take advantage of the tax savings to purchase computers for their kids or upgrade their own. And you'll see great deals on clothes, shoes and school supplies. It's a winning proposition for Florida's families and for our retailers, because we'll see a good boost in commerce over the weekend," McAllister said. "Stores are actively competing with each other for customers, and that usually means plenty of mark downs to attract shoppers." Retailers in Florida are expected to boost staf ng by about 20 percent during the tax holiday weekend to accommodate shoppers. In general, retailers expect an average increase of between 30 and 40 percent in store traf c over the weekend because of the sales tax holiday. McAllister said that retail spending in Florida remains strong, and he expected retail sales to at least match last year's growth. A National Retail Federation survey predicts that families with school-aged children will spend an average of $634.78 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics in 2013, down from $688.62 last year. "Back-to-school sales were up about 6 percent in Florida last year, and we are close to that pace right now," McAllister said. "Because of the tax holiday, retail stores generally perform a little better in Florida than in states without a sales tax holiday." (Editors note: The Florida Department of Revenue has developed a smartphonefriendly QR code for use during the 2013 sales tax holiday to access the list of taxable and tax-exempt items. In order to use the QR code, use a smartphone QR application to scan it, and it will download an alphabetical list of items.) During the tax holiday weekend, there will be no state or local sales taxes due on personal computers and related accessories having a sales price of $750 or less, purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. The term "personal computer" includes any electronic book reader, laptop, desktop, handheld, tablet, or tower computer, but does not include cellphones, video game consoles, digital media receivers, or devices that are not primarily designed to process data. The term "related accessories" includes keyboards, mice, personal digital assistants, monitors (except those with TV tuners), modems, routers, and nonrecreational software. As in previous tax holidays, clothing and shoes up to $75 will be tax exempt, along with school supplies up to $15. That includes pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, notebooks, notebook paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composition books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue or paste, rulers, computer disks, protractors, compasses, and calculators. ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE SALES TAX HOLIDAY A study by The Washington Economics Group (WEG) that examined the impact of the back-to-school sales tax holiday con rmed that increased spending during the three-day period in 2010 generated $115 million more in taxable sales, and $293 million more in overall sales. That generated an additional $7 million in revenue to the state of Florida. HISTORY OF THE SALES TAX HOLIDAY IN FLORIDA The rst sales tax holiday in Florida was enacted in 1998, and ran for seven days from August 15-21. It applied to clothing and footwear valued at $50 or less. It was patterned on a sales-tax-free period rst enacted in the state of New York. There have been 11 sales tax holidays in Florida in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Florida's sales tax holiday was expanded in 1999 to a nine-day holiday spanning two weekends from July 31 to August 8 and the value of tax-exempt clothing raised to $100. The holiday in 2000 was nearly identical. In 2001, school supplies with a selling price under $10 were exempted for the rst time, while the clothing exemption was reduced to $50. After a two-year hiatus, the nine-day holiday returned in 2004 and continued through 2007 with an exemption on clothing under $50 and school supplies under $10. In 2005, to encourage residents to stock up on emergency supplies, Florida added a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, which continued through 2007. When the sales tax holiday returned in 2010, it was a three-day holiday from August 13-15 with exemptions on clothing under $50 and school supplies under $10. The three-day tax holiday was repeated in 2011 from August 12-14, with increased exemptions of clothing up to $75 and school supplies up to $15. In 2012 it ran from August 3-5.

July 10, 2013 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – Edison State College School of Health Professions is enthused about the Dental Hygiene Program’s recent make-over of the Lee campus Dental Hygiene Clinic. State-of-the-art dental equipment was recently installed that included sixteen new dental chairs (16-Pelton & Crane, Spirit 3003) and renovation of the dental materials lab. These upgrades will provide dental hygiene students with the most modern technology for the procedures that occur daily in the clinic and will also offer added comfort for the patients. The Dental Hygiene Clinic opened in December 2000 and serves 3,000 patients annually. The Clinic is equipped with sixteen dental suites including dental radiographic units and an instrument sterilization center. The Clinic incorporated electronic (paperless) patient records in 2004. Faculty, staff and students in the program also service the local community through participation in several projects such as: National Give Kids A Smile Day, Project Dentist Care, Elementary school presentations, Buckingham Exceptional Educational Program, Gulf Coast Dental Hygiene Table Clinics, JDRF Walk, Dental Health Month activities, Assisted Care Facilities Presentations, and Edison’s Light House Commons Nutritional Project. The Edison State College Dental Hygiene program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. For 18 consecutive years, graduates have earned a 100 percent pass rate on the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination. The Program boasts a 90% completion rate among students accepted into the program, with 258 graduates since 1995. Each class is diverse with students of various age and ethnic backgrounds. English is a second language for 30 percent of the students enrolled in the program. The Dental Hygiene program also partners with the Continuing Education Department to offer an injectable dental anesthesia course for Florida’s Registered Dental Hygienists. This is a result of recent legislative change that expanded the scope of skills performed dental hygienists. National attention has determined the oral health connection to other systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, low infant birth weight, and nutritional deciencies. Dental hygiene focuses on the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, through treatment and patient education. Results of national studies show that 80% of dental disease occurs in 20% of our population who are dentally underserved. “The Dental Hygiene Clinic is not only a great resource for providing clinical education for our students, but also a tremendous asset for our community members who may not have access to dental care,” said Karen Molumby, Program Director of Dental Hygiene. “Patients receive outstanding preventive dental care at an affordable price while students obtain valuable hands-on experience, supervised by our talented and experienced faculty who are licensed Dental Hygienists and Dentists,” added Dr. Marie Collins, Dean, School of Health Professions. Edison State College dental hygiene clinic gets makeover Roger Young, 67LABELLE — Roger Young, renowned spinner of tall tales and tireless pursuer of sport sh, slipped the bonds of this world to go to his eternal rest on July 22, 2013. Roger is survived by a large, extended, and div erse family built on his endless and sel ess love for all good people. Roger was known as “Dad,” “Grandpa,” and “PawPaw” to many people and he loved them all like family, whether or not they were related. During his many years of service as a site supervisor at Country Oaks Elementary, he was known to the kids as “Mr. Young” and to everyone else as “Tell Roger that thing is broken again.” He often spoke with joy in seeing the many children who came through the school and blossomed there. For many years, Roger’s ball cap, plaid shirt, and gigantic ring of keys were as much an important part of the place as any building or playground. Perhaps his greatest joy was his unending love of the outdoors and the glory of nature in all its forms. From the Florida shore to the Rocky Mountains, he traveled every barren, forgotten, and ill-advised path he could in search of nature in all its untouched glory. He often found that when you went far enough that you did not know precisely where you were, that usually meant you were in the right place. His second love, of course, was his endless pursuit of sport sh with rod and reel. While to most people, Roger was a kind and friendly man, to sh he was terror made real, clad in blue jeans, a plaid shirt, and a mesh baseball cap. Many a bass, pike, and cat sh succumbed to his preternatural skill in making sh throw caution to the wind in favor of whatever lure or bait he presented that day. His closest shing secret was passed on to his children with hushed reverence “think like a sh.” Roger, in death, has chosen his path as he did in life to live simply and surround himself with the love of those close to him. He wanted no great pomp or fanfare, just a simple gathering of his family and celebration of a long and loving life. While his family mourns his passing, they also celebrate a life well lived and well loved and invite you to do the same. In lieu of owers, Roger Young’s family has asked that donations be made in his name to the Ronald McDonald House.

6 Caloosa Belle August 1, 2013 by Dale Conyers If you’re like the majority of us, you work from 9 to 5 Monday through Friday, spending over 40 hours a week sitting at a desk looking at the same old walls all day long. Most of us do what we can to make our work areas homier by pasting up stuff that re ects our personalities on those boring walls. Some of us don’t have the luxury of decorating our workspace and just have to bear the sterile work environment those barren w alls create. Tina Shepard, a bailiff at the Hendry County Courthouse, found herself in just that type of environment and was determined to do something about it. In her spare time Tina runs her own w edding and portrait photography business, Tina Shepherd Photography and her interest in photography gave her an idea – Why not use the walls at the courthouse to highlight w ork by local photographers, since there really isn’t anywhere in the area for local artist to display their work. To get photographs of Hendry and Glades counties, Tina started a group on Facebook called HENDRY/GLADES PHOTOGRAPHERS and using some of the names fellow wedding photographer JerriLynn Merritt provided, she started invited local photographers to join the group. It didn’t take long for people to join the group and start sharing their photographs in different albums on the group’s page. Tina and a committee from the courthouse went through the photographs and started picking out the ones they’d like to see printed. After the photos where picked it was up to the photographers to get the shot printed, framed and displayed. Each photographer was allowed to include their business card with the framed print, so anyone who wants to get in touch with them about the print can do so. To date 23 pictures are on display in the judicial section of the courthouse and Judge Sloan is impressed with the quality of the work now on display. Tina is always looking for more photographs because the courthouse is a big building. She hopes to have artwork displayed in every section of the building. If you’re a local photographer, join her group on Facebook and start uploading some of your work there. Tina also plans on going to the schools this fall to see if the teachers would like to display student art Local photography graces Courthouse walls Caloosa Belle/ Dale ConyersBeautiful framed photographs taken by area residents may be enjoyed as they decorate the Courthouse walls.

Thank you to Van and Quinten from the Seminole Tribe of Florida for their great presentation earlier. They made the Seminole heritage and traditions so interesting for the children, as well as teaching a great lesson for all of us. Everyone made their own dream catcher to take home as a reminder of everything they learned. The Florida Trackers' learned about the Jacksonville area and had a special treat as Ms. Patty Register, talked about her favorite critters and how they are cared for at Gatorama. Thanks so much to Mr. Butch Wilson from the Clewiston Museum, for his interesting presentation. The children were excited about the museum pieces brought for them to examine as well as the packets of sand and rock they were able to dig through, looking for sharks teeth and other treasures.

Not only is it Nationally Accredited, which aligns it with the highest standards of excellence, it takes each individual child into consideration when planning the daily activities. Director Sonya Flores says, “We use an assessment tool called Teaching Strategies Gold that helps us understand where each child is developmentally in the areas of growth. This gives us the opportunity to work with the child on skills where improvement is needed in order for that child to be ready for Kindergarten.”
