This was truly a community effort to make this event such a success. A huge thanks to everyone that helped with the "Back to School Kids Expo"! LaBelle saw over 500 people! Additionally, there were about 140 Child Identi cation Kits completed in LaBelle! It is a wonderful thing to see the community (organizations, agencies, local businesses, students, and lots of volunteers!) coming together to make this event possible. Other than the extreme heat and a little waiting time in lines... most folks said that it was a great and well organized event!

Through it all, Zac's family has kept in touch with the community, sharing their strength through social media. Excerpts from their Facebook messages from his parents say it all: "Another day and no changes in Zac's condition. His treatment is almost nished and there has been no progress. God is in control. He will come when we least expect it. As Zac's father, it has been dif cult not being able to help him while he lays there. Keeping everyone informed this week has given me a voice to say things I would have never said before but God has his reasons. Keeping my faith is dif cult when I see what Zac is up against, but I have to stay strong through this and believe that it is God's will and He is preparing us for a victory either way. Please pray for Zac and pray that God continues to give us strength these last few days of treatment. The enemy is trying to make us lose hope and we need your prayers. We love you all for supporting us and being part of our family through this tough time. God Bless You and thanks again. "I can't express how much we appreciate all the love and support you all are giving. Your prayers for Zac are being heard. We are still in the storm and it seems to be getting worse. Its time for everyone to look at your own lives and question yourselves if you are right with The Lord. Every life that is changed by this will shine a light on Zachary and the storm will soon be over. We love you all and this has opened our eyes more than I can explain. We have found peace through all of this and it's God lling our hearts with His love. How ironic, Zac is spreading this infection of love while he battles his own. I'm so proud of him. He's God's soldier. He's awesome. Keep praying for a miracle. Thank you all. In Jesus name, Amen." On Friday, August 16, the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades counties held a press conference to continue to raise awareness about Naegleria fowleri. There is a standard process that the Department of Health follows for all diseases, regardless of the disease. That process involves interviewing the family to ask about possible exposure sources. The Department of Health is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC provided the testing that con rmed the case in Glades County. The exact water source of exposure cannot be exactly identi ed because the amoeba occurs naturally in warm freshwater sources such as rivers, lakes, ponds, canals, and ditches. Because the amoeba is found in most freshwater sources, and because of the inconsistency in test results, the CDC does not recommend speci c testing of freshwater sources. For informational research, the CDC does collect information such as water temperatures, water depths, water clarity and air temperatures in the surrounding areas of where a case has been con rmed. 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. There were local news reports questioning exposure risks from water sprinklers. According to the CDC, there are no reports of infections from this route of exposure in the US and it would be very unlikely that this activity could lead to infection. If the sprinklers are using canal water, that would be a slightly higher risk but still very unlikely since people would not generally force that water up their nose. The organism is most commonly found in warm freshwater (lakes, rivers, ponds, canals, and ditches). It should be removed in treated tap water that uses ltration and disinfection and would not be expected to be found in groundwater from private wells (the water is cooler than ideal for Naegleria growth and there would not be abundant bacteria for Naegleria to feed on). Ways to reduce your risk from Naegleria fowleri infection: Limit 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. Put your card in this space for six weeks for Only $90!

Due to the heavy rainfall and isolated ooding throughout the state this summer, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) emphasizes the importance of residents and visitors protecting themselves against mosquitoborne diseases. To prevent mosquitoes from living and multiplying around your home or business, individuals should remember to drain and cover. Drain standing water: Drain water from garbage cans, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainw ater has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets' w ater bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain w ith tarps that don't accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover your skin with: Clothing If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with 10-30 percent DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Cover doors and windows with screens: Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches and patios. Symptoms of West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses may include headache, fever, fatigue, dizziness, and confusion.

A re we our own w orst enemies?Enough is enough! I live in a place where most people there dont care or should I say: If they do they dont show it! They rather get upset & talk negative about someone who does care. They rather compete on who did what or whos who. They rather sit back and depend on others to do for them. These are the type of responses you w ould hear in my community: If its not happening to my household, around my house, with my immediate family, then dont bother me. If its not going to pro t me anything, or if I cant get something for out of it then dont bother me. Who does she/he think they are to go try and help get things done, she/he just came here, Ive been here all my life. Why should i do this or that, when they got people paid to do it, even though it just might help improve my neighborhood w here I reside. Its always been like this. Its never going to change, the people up-town, are going to do what they want to and theres nothing y ou can do about it. No one told me they were trying to do anything. Why does it always have to be this or that church, or this person, or that person? I will just move away when I can and not worry about it, because nothing has changed or nothing will ever change. I am not going out there with those people, because I have better or others things to do with my time. These people dont want better and Im not going to waste my time. I just go home and mind my own buisness . unless . Im just realizing how people disliked me. How people really despise me, because I CARE. I care about my community, the condition of my community, the people in my community, and Im always willing to help and wanting better. I even care about those w ho dislike or despise what I do or try to do. I dont dislike anyone, especially for being w ho you are. We may disagree plenty, but thats what make us all UNIQUE. Just imagine if we all brought our uniqueness together along with all our strengths, thoughts, ideas, and willingness to WORK TOGETHER, what we could accomplish. The guy on-the-corner just might be able to encourage the BS graduate to hang in there. Or perhaps that teacher who really cares could help mentor someone who really needs help but afraid to ask. After all We are our community! I dont need anyone to do something to motivate me to do something. I have a brain and heart. I can see the need, and dont mind pulling up my sleeves and digging in. I dont think Im helping, I know Im doing what I can to make things better. I did move here, because I love this place. I know everyone needs help at sometime or the other. I dont live in a bubble; I live in a neighborhood named FORD/SUNSET PARK COMMUNITY. I dont mind doing something that will help anyone in my Community. I dont care what church you attend or what street you live on, you are in my Community. I dont care what your last name is, nor should you care what my last name is. I rather try to do something for myself than to expect others to do everything for me. I dont compete with people; I just try to be the best me I can be. I do have a motto in life I live by: Do your best, the greatest can do no more! Im not ashamed, embrassessed or afraid nor do I need others approval: BECAUSE I CARE! Mrs. Nora Ned Better late than neverDear Mr. Darrell Harris, Today my 10 year old Evan went to ball practice. Unfortunately like my dad, due to my career I cannot ful ll the obligations of coaching his team. Seeing him in his practice gear made me think back oh lets just call it 30 years. Although oceans of water have passed beneath the Fort Denaud Bridge since I played my rst ball game at the old high school (middle school) eld on Lee Street. The names and faces of friends that are now legendary in my mind are still vivid and bright. Names like Ronnie Spencer, Kevin Tucker, Ricky Nipper, Tommy Cisneros, Kevin Mobley, Scottie Stinnet, Mike Burton, Larry Marsh, Craig Moss, Ray Johnson, Joe Mobley, Lynn Jordan and yes even Matt Ellison who probably every once in a while still has ashbacks of that fateful shallow y that sealed the LaBelle All Star season potential run at Little League Greatness. That was the last year I can remember us all together. What a team. My memories of those days are so bittersweet as the Big League chew gum we once savored. I would like to think that together we has an incredible amount of raw youthful talent for a small town. I mean we naturally really played some good ball. That being said however it was YOU sir that took us to another level. It was your strict adherence to the technical side of the game, and the discipline you demanded while on and off the eld that was a huge part of what made us not only a great team, but were lessons that I know have stuck with me through life and have in some way been a part of my success. I dont know if you remember it or not, but the Cubs coach Ol Joe Cisneros when taking in eld would always hit a ball rst to my right, then center and nally left while I played short stop. Just like clockwork he would take in eld. So much so that I always anticipated the ball and automatically broke in a direction when elding. Well knowing that would one day haunt me and the team. Like a young bronc you broke me of it. I remember sweat pouring from my brow beneath that grueling Florida sun as you drilled that ball again and again over and over til I reacted properly and became able to handle any ri e shot that came my way. I remember saying to myself Coach Harris either reall y doesnt like me or really knows what hes doing. Somehow I knew as I was breathing the dust of the last play seeing you toss up the next ball that would quickly be honing my reaction time, that I was going to be a better player for it. And I was right. But little did I realize then that it would be my rst lesson in how discipline, consistency, and repetition pays off. A great and valuable lesson. I was going to send this letter to you vi a snail mail. I just gured why wait? I also thought a man like yourself ought to be recognized before the largest audience possible. I just know someone out there will hopefull y read it and forward it to you. Coach Harris I wan you to know how much I appreciate you sacri cing your time and energy for me personally, and the kids of LaBelle whos lives you have touched over all these years. I want you to know that great memories o f you still dwell in the hearts and minds o f many of us. You sir are a big reason wh y Iunderstand and love, and truly enjoy ever y aspect of what has been called the Perfect Game. I thank you for that and I treasure the times WE all spent together.

Submitted photo/ Brenda BarnesKiwanis = fun!The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle really knows how to have FUN!! Last week they celebrated three of their members who turned 70 this year (and a few who are 70-plus years!) Nikki Yeager surprised the club with a song and skit routine "She's Got You" by Patsy Cline...Nikki had the crowd rolling with laughter as she pulled things out of her blouse like records, pictures, rings, and a few other things that matched the words to the song. The three ladies who turned 70 this year are: Nell Broom, Audrey Kinchen and Nikki Yeager. The ladies each told a little bit about themselves and shared pictures and stories of their lives over the years. The club surprised the ladies with a nice cake and club member Millard Wagnon surpised the ladies with a special gift. It was a wonderful way to share a great evening with the Kiwanis Family!

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It aint your kid sisters bike ride. Crisscrossing the country Paul Modoono started his epic journey in August 2012. He cycled to Maine from his native Boston, then out to the countrys midsection in Missouri and on to the Paci c West Coast. He then made his way down to southern California before starting back eastward. Inspired by his best friend, a quadriplegic, he said he rides 200 days per year, trying to spread hope to victims of spinal cord injuries. Its his way of paying it forward. Recently, Paul made a stopover in LaBelle. While in LaBelle he hooked up with his uncle, John Chendley, for a little time off and family catching up. He stood at just under 7,000 miles of his 10,000 mile trip. By the time he gets home to Boston, he gures hell still have about 1,200 miles to go to meet his goal. But its time to get back. He can make those miles up. Paul said he can do 108 miles per day, but its not a good idea. It drains your reserves, making the upcoming ride much more difcult. Its much better do about 40 miles per day. You can keep that (pace) up, he said. His actual daily mileage depends on the weather. In Florida, especially this time of year, he said shorter distances are much more practical. He can deal with the rain, but he doesnt want to be caught in really rough weather and Florida weather can change in the blink of an eye. Paul said he spends about two hours per day in planning navigation and mapping his route. Its just Paul and his custom-sized Cevelo bicycle his two-wheeled Lamborghini tricked out with gadgets that help him navigate and store vital information for him. Paul has no sponsors for his trip, hes doing this all on his own no team to assist him, no friendly faces to spend his down time with. It took a while but hes conquered the loneliness, he muses. Through all his travels, Paul has done serious cycling on all types of roads highways, peaceful two-lane country roads. On the West Coast hes persevered over narrow mountain roads sandwiched in between a mountain, fast-moving semis and a sheer drop off to the ocean. On his way north from Key West, he came up US 27 and west on CR 78 a great road for cycling, he commented. In fact, he loved Florida roads which always seem to have bike lanes. A car is a dangerous weapon to a bicyclist, he noted. Before deciding to make this incredible trip, Paul was already a triathelon athlete, so he understood the training involved. A chef by trade, he had a small catering business in Boston for nine years. When he won the lottery not a fortune, he says but a lifetime annuity just enough to allow him some freedom he decided to make this incredible trip. Twentyve percent of the trip has been awesome, he notes, enough to keep his spirit going. Once its all over, hes looking forward to writing a book about his experience, complete with photos of his rides. Sales from the book will go toward spinal cord research. Hes hoping people he meets along the way will be inspired to send donations to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, a nonpro t organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury and improving the qualit y of life for people living with paralysis. Anyone wishing to donate to the cause can do so online at christopherreeve.org / modoono.
