Ima g e is for illustration purposes onl y Offer ends 08/31/13 Thursday, August 15, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No. 33 The Port LaBelle Community Development owns and maintains about 180 lane miles of roads or about 90 miles of two lane roads. The condition of the roads, which are about 30 or more years old, is deteriorating. The road surfaces are cracked with a number of potholes. The expected life of the roads has been exceeded by many years. The District operates on ad valorem property taxes, very little of which is used for repair and maintenance of road surfaces. The District repairs potholes from time to time, utilizing a cold patch material. Some of the roads need major improvements by overlaying with an inch of asphalt. The cost of the overlay is estimated at $70,000 for one mile. The Board is proposing to increase the millage rate by .50¢ per thousand and place the proceeds in the Restricted Road repair account, which is expected to generate about $39,000 in one year. The new funds will be added to the Restricted Road Fund balance of $43,000, which will provide an estimated $82,000. The $82,000 will pave one plus mile of roadway. The road will be selected based on an inventory of roads, with the worst condition being rst for improvements. The public is invited to comment on the proposal. The Board of Supervisors for the Port LaBelle Community Development District has scheduled a Budget Workshop for A ugust 19, 2013, at 5:30 PM at the District of ce located at 3293 Dellwood Terrace, Port LaBelle. PLBCD proposes tax increase for improvements By Katrina ElskenSpecial to the Caloosa Belle LABELLE--A LaBelle Middle School student is ghting for his life at Miami Children's Hospital. Zachary Reyna, 12, has been diagnosed with primary amoebic meningoencephalitisor PAM. The infection is caused by Naegleria fowleri, a brain-eating amoeba. PAM is deadly in most cases. According to the Center for Disease Control, in the past 50 years only three victims have survived, including the recent case in Arkansas of 12year-old Kali Hardig, who is still hospitalized. An online campaign "Pray4Number4" has Facebook and Twitter fans all over the country sending prayers that Zachary will be the fourth. According to family members who have posted updates on Facebook and Twitter, Zachary is believed to have come in contact with the amoeba while kneeboarding in a ditch near his home in Port LaBelle on Aug. 3. When Zachary started showing signs of illness, at rst the family just thought Zachary had a "24-hour bug," according to Zachary's older brother, Brandon Villarreal. But when the normally active boy slept all night and all day, his mother sensed something was wrong. On Aug. 7, Zachary was hospitalized in Fort Myers. The next day, he was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital, where he is in pediatric intensive care. According to family member's reports on social media, a spinal tap showed positive for DNA remnants of the amoeba. The boy underwent surgery on Aug. 10 to relieve pressure on his brain. Zachary's doctors in Miami are in contact with the doctors in Arkansas who treated Kali Harding. According to Brenda Barnes of the Hendry County Health Department, initial symptoms of PAM usually start within one to 7 days after infection. The initial symptoms may include headache, fever, nausea, or vomiting. Other symptoms can include stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, seizures, and hallucinations. After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly. While keeping vigil at the hospital, Zachary's family is also using social media to warn others of the dangers of swimming in warm freshwater lakes, ponds and canals where the amoeba may be found. "Keep bringing your prayers," Dann y Reyna, Zachary's uncle, tweeted Tuesday. "The support around the country is awesome. Also spread the word on amoebas. Keep our children safe. "Zac is a ghter and will kick this amoeba," he stated. Zachary's parents posted the following message online Tuesday morning: "Zac is still ghting. Doctors are saying things have not changed. We are still strong on our end because we know God will step in when he is ready. Keep praying." According to Danny Reyna, Zac is an athlete who loves being outdoors.

It’s his turn to hit it out. Bring the runs home so we can go home.

A love offering was taken at the end of the service and $3,194.16 plus $75 in gift cards was given the help Zachary’s parents. A special account has been set up at First Bank of Clewiston and donations can be made at any branch. Posts about Zachary can be found on Twitter at #pray4number4. Although the Port LaBelle area where the boy likely came in contact with the amoeba is south of the Caloosahatchee River, it is in Glades County. This is why the initial reports identi ed it as a Glades County case. When the county lines were originally drawn, the winding Caloosahatchee River was the border between Hendry and Glades Counties. However, the course of the river was changed slightly when it was channelized for navigation and ood control. Because of this, some areas of Glades County are on the south side of the river and some parts of Hendry County are on the north side.

I have never met a person who wanted to study the Bible, or who did so faithfully who did not need some guidelines. Since the Bible was declared to be complete, multitudes have poured over its pages gaining inspiration, truth, and help in their personal lives. How grateful we should be for a copy of God’s Word. As hard as it is comprehend here in America, there are millions of others around our globe who are not allowed to own a Bible. Many multiple others may possess one, but they do not know how to read, so it is of little assistance to them. Below are some ideas I have found to be helpful in my Bible reading over the last thirtyve (+/-) years. I have bene tted from these and perhaps you will as well. 1. Pray for understanding. Before you even begin to study, ask God to guide and show you His will. Remember that it is the Creator who gives true understanding through His Word. You cannot gain it on y our own. (See Ps 119:33-40; Proverbs 3:5-8; J eremiah 9:23-24.) 2. Keep an open mind. Willingly admit w hen you are wrong & change, even if it means letting go of a long-held belief or tradition. Acts 17:11 offers this challenge: These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. 3. Humbly seek instruction and correction. Approach the Bible with a teachable, humble attitude. The Word of God judges our innermost thoughts & show us who we really are, reveals every aw in our character. So be ready to heed its correction as is seen in Jeremiah 10:23-24, Isaiah 66:1-2 and Romans 8:6-9. 4. Accept the inspiration of all the Bible. The entire Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. When studying, keep in mind that He inspired the w ords you are reading; God is directly speaking to you. The passage in 2 Peter 1:21 afrms this: No prophecy came in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake moved by Holy Spirit. In John 6:63 Jesus claims, It is the spirit that quickens; the esh pro ts nothing: the words that I speak unto y ou, they are spirit, and they are life. 5. Plan time for regular study and try to maintain it. Over time you will look forward to this daily experience. Notice how Ephesians 5:15-17 exhorts the believer to study the Word. 6. Let the Bible interpret itself. If something is confusing, let clear biblical passages shed light on those areas you nd dif cult. Scriptures don’t contradict one another, but complement each other. Don’t force your personal point of view. Use the context and other relevant scriptures to nd the correct meaning. (See 2 Peter 1:20, John 10:35, 17:17 and Is 28:9-10.) 7. Study topics. Concentrate on one subject, one doctrine or book at a time. Use a concordance or other study aid to put together all the scriptures relevant to a subject. This will allow you to see all that God has to say about a particular topic. In 2 Timothy 2:15 Paul writes, Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 8. Read the whole Bible. By reading every section of the Bible, you give yourself a broad familiarity and perspective that will help you shed preconceived ideas about doctrinal subjects. 9. Compare different translations. The Bible was written in ancient languages, and scholars sometimes differ on how certain verses should be translated today. A literal rendering is often preferred, but a thoughtfor-thought translation or paraphrase is sometimes better at capturing the intent of ancient gures of speech. 10. Use study aids properly. They can provide valuable historical background or point you to other scriptures that add clarity to your reading. Aids include concordances, lexicons, dictionaries, maps and commentaries. 11. Seek guidance from your church leadership. God has commissioned His servants to guide people into a fuller understanding of His Word. We nd in Proverbs 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Nehemiah 8:8 states they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading. 12. Take notes. Jot down notes and explanatory comments in your Bible. Use a marking system with colors if that helps you. 13. Obey God’s Word and prove it right. Put God’s Word to the test by practicing the things you are learning. The best way to determine that God’s commands and teachings bring true peace and blessings to you is by living them. Psalms 111:10 tells us, The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever. 14. Hold fast 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Paul also states, Col 1:22-23 In the body of his esh thru death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister. God bless you in your Bible reading.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Keys to Help You Understand the Bible By Brenda Barnes Special to the Caloosa Belle Naegleria fowleri (commonly referred to as the “brain-eating amoeba”), is a microscopic amoeba which is a single-celled living organism. It can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals. Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose. Once the amoeba enters the nose, it travels to the brain where it causes PAM (which destroys brain tissue) and is usually fatal. Infections usually occur when it is hot for prolonged periods of time, which results in higher water temperatures and lower water levels. The peak season for this amoeba is July, August and September. Naegleria fowleri infections are rare. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 28 infections were reported in the U.S. from 2003 to 2012. The infections occurred from exposure to contaminated recreational water. You cannot be infected with Naegleria fowleri by drinking contaminated water and the amoeba is not found in salt water. Initial symptoms of PAM usually start within 1 to 7 days after infection. The initial symptoms may include headache, fever, nausea, or vomiting. Other symptoms can include stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, seizures, and hallucinations. After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly. Naegleria fowleri is found in many warm freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers in the United States, but mostly in southerntier states. The low number of infections makes it dif cult to know why a few people have been infected compared to the millions of other people that used the same or similar waters across the U.S. The only way to prevent a Naegleria fowleri infection is not to participate in freshwater-related activities. You may reduce your risk by:  Limiting the amount of water going up your nose. Hold your nose shut, use nose clips, or keep your head above water when taking part in warm freshwater-related activities.  Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels.  Avoid digging in, or stirring up, the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas. For more information about Naegleria fowleri, you can visit the CDC website http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/naegleria/ Risks of Swimming in Freshwater Lakes, Ponds and Canals

School Readiness is subsidized child care based on need. Last year over 1700 children had a literacy buddy. A literacy buddy is a volunteer who agrees to receive letters from a child and then purchases a book for the child and mails it to the child at his child care facility. In the rst few weeks of school, children w rite letters requesting a book on a particular subject from a literacy buddy. Their early w riting skills consist of mostly scribbles and pictures and their teacher scribes to explain w hat the child is communicating in the letter. After the child receives a book from their literacy buddy, the child then mails a thank y ou to the buddy. This exchange takes place three times during the school year. The exchanges are spread out over the year so the v olunteer can observe the child's growth and encourage the child by letter as his literacy skills develop. Exchanges take place through the mail so that anyone anywhere can be a literacy buddy. Many winter residents are literacy buddies. Children come to the classroom with different literacy experiences and abilities. When children hear books read aloud, they come to understand why learning to read is important. They learn that people read for different reasons books that tell a story can be read for pleasure; books full of facts and information can be read in order to learn new things. Children learn a great deal when they listen to books read aloud they hear new words, learn new ways of saying things, and are introduced to new ideas, different people, and faraway places. For many children in the Literacy Buddy Project, there are no books or reading materials in their homes for parents to provide these experiences. Their literacy buddy may provide them with the rst book they have ever owned. When teachers, parents, and communities work together to build optimal learning environments, children's success in reading and writing can be expected. As a literacy buddy, you can make a difference in the child's exposure to books and help them develop a love of reading.
