Ponce de Leon is credited with bringing cattle, horses and citrus to Flroida on his second expedition. The cracker cattle and ponies of today can be traced back to that time. Of couse he brought the hogs and other maladies too. Everyone has a story! Perhaps you share a common community, ancestry, faith, industry or talent. You make Hendry County what it is today and organizers of the celebration want to hear your story. There will be booth space available for communities, churches, food vendors and exhibitors for pro t and non-pro t groups, musicians and historians free of charge. Does your family have a “coat of arms?” Do you have any old photographs to share? Can you w eave palm fronds into hats? Can by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The reorganization of the East Recreation Department continues to progress. At Tuesday night’s Hendry County Commission meeting in LaBelle commissioners discussed the proposed increase o f the special recreation assessment on residential properties in unincorporated East County. The Cit y of Clewiston still needs to sign on to the interlocal agreement. A public hearing for the East Hendr y Recreational MSBU is planned for September 10. As planned, assessments for Central County Water Control District would increase from $20 to $40 per dwelling =. In the rest o f the MSBU assessments would increase from $50 to $100 per dwelling unit. East Rec plan evolving An outpouring of love from the LaBelle community and beyond helped raise over $33,000 at the August 24 bene t for young Zac Reyna, who bravely battled a brain-eating amoeba since August 3. Sadly, he lost the struggle that very day. The Reyna family decided to continue the legacy of giving that surrounds Zac by donating his organs to sustain others facing similar tragedies. As with the major events of Zac’s condition, the family posted the heart-breaking news that doctors held out no medical hope, but the family did not waiver in its faith in God. Posted on Facebook by his family August 24: “At 1:54 today there was a crack of a bat heard. Zac took it deep. My boy hit his homerun. One that I’ll never forget. I’m so proud of him. He left it all on the eld and I can’t ask for more. He did so well that he’ll be the starting 2nd baseman for The Lords team. I sit back and ask myself, what would make me prouder; my son playing pro ball, being a successful business man or being known for changing and saving thousands of lives for The Lord. It’s a no brainer. I love The Lord for giving me such a beautiful son who He chose to change myself, my family and the world for better. Thank you Jesus. It hurts, but you have given my family love and peace. We couldn’t be so strong today without you. I hope that Zac continues to touch people and his time here is remembered forever. We thank everyone for being so Community mourns young hero Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantThe play’s the thingUp Close from a Distance, a play by Chuck Wood, was the Firehouse Community Theatre’s choice in its rst ever play writing contest. It is hoped the Clarence “Bud” Jones Playwriting Competition will be an annual contest, open to members in good standing of the Arts of the Inland artistic group. The contest will be seeking out talented playwrights from around the area. It was named in honor of the late Clarence “Bud” Jones who taught English at Clewiston High School for 20 years. His brother, John and his wife Betty, wished to honor Bud’s memory by creating this competition in his name. The Firehouse Community Theatre is working hard to extend its support of various forms of art. Dreams and reality blend in Mr. Wood’s play, which will be produced by the LaBelle theater group in its 2013-14 season. Up Close at a Distance is a love story that explores the connection between real life and dreams. Pictured from left: John Jones, Chuck Wood, Joel Hawkins and Susan Jordan. See more on Page 2.

The battle is over for Zac but he w on the war." On Tuesday, August 27, the family posted: "Tonight at 10:13PM, Zachary Cole Reyna began his journey to save lives. Zac donated all his organs to others that were waiting on a miracle. Through donating his organs, Zac is living on. His heart will be pumping for someone, his lungs will be taking breaths for someone and all his other organs will change the lives of many. Zac is our miracle. His strong spirit will always be among us. He changed all of our lives, brought us closer to God, strengthened our family and his story has touched people around the world. We thank you all for your support and prayers. If your life is not on the right track, we ask that you say this prayer: "Father, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen." Funereal arrangements have yet to be made. We will post information at a later time. God Bless you all." Organizers scrambled to put together the huge event which included an online and live auction, hog hunt and many other fundraising activities. In just about a week over 400 T-shirts, embellished with a cross, Zac's #4, his name and the Biblical reference Isaiah 53:5, helped bring light to the cause along with the family's web site pray4number4. Young Zac's story touched story touched the lives of many who never knew him. According to one of the organizers, Susan Harris Whidden, Saturday's event "was awesome. The community really pulled together. We had people come in from Miami, Naples, North Port and Fort Myers." There will be a softball game at 9 a.m. this Saturday, August 31, at Davis-Pratt Park to continue raising funds for the family. Of the resulting $170,000 to be generated, $125,000 would be allocated to the City of Clewiston to expand its recreational program in the unincorporated county. The MSBU would contribute another $50,000 to the city for use of city recreational facilities by unincorporated county residents. The county would be responsible for maintenance of rec facilities in the unincorporated areas. Because the City of Clewiston will handle all rec programming, the count y still expects to have money to pay for maintenance, capital improvements and debt payments to the general fund.

Once the disaster is declared, Individuals and families can register online at www.fema.gov or by phone at 1-800-5889822, 24-hours a day, when the system is activated. http://www.fema.gov/publicassistance-local-state-tribal-and-non-pro t/ recovery-directorate/national-emergencyfamily Personal and family preparedness The State Attorney’s Of ce, 20th Judicial Circuit announces a new partnership with CheckRighter to administer the recovery of funds through our Bad Check Diversion Unit. The service is provided through the company adventfs.com. The company offers a variety of educational programs for people who write bad checks as well as works towards recovering the funds for the victim. “Even with the technology of today and fewer people using traditional checks to pay for services, bad checks still present a significant problem to our business community. Through this partnership we will continue our strong record of nancial recovery so that victims get their money back quickly.” Steve Russell, State Attorney Under Florida law, some people who write bad checks qualify for diversion. Our of ce through our Bad Check Diversion Unit maintains oversight and control of the process but with the help of CheckRighter the nancial recovery process moves more swiftly. Education speci cally targeted to the bad check writer reduces reoccurrences. Tens of thousands of dollars are recovered annually through our Bad Check Diversion Unit and we look forward to additional continued success. Recover funds from bad checks Road Closure NoticeHendry County Road and Bridge reports that Collingswood Pkwy south from SE/S W Eucalyptus to E Cowboy Way will be closed until further notice to ALL traf c. This is due to all of the recent heavy rains causing the culverts to fail creating washouts in the road. Please seek alternate routes and drive safely. by Katie PurcellIt’s 5 a.m. and Lt. Eric Hall is driving around the wooded grounds of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) training center at the Florida Public Safety Institute, just outside of Tallahassee. He’s checking to make sure the running trail is in good condition. As he approaches the agpole in front of his of ce, he sees the group of FWC recruits lined up in formation. Though the sun has yet to rise, it’s already steamy and their matching gray T-shirts stick to their backs. He parks his truck and gets out, calls “Right face” and takes off at a trot. The recruits fall in behind the ex-Navy SEAL for their morning run, the sound of their shoes and their musical cadence calls the only sounds echoing through the quiet campus. After the 4-mile jaunt, they quickly shower and head to the chow hall for breakfast. The rest of the day is spent in the classroom going over boating laws and boat maintenance, but later in the week they will board a bus and head to the coast for some handson practice behind the wheel of one of their many vessels. Since FWC of cers are responsible for patrolling all of Florida’s woods, including public and private lands, as well as its waters, they must be well-versed on a wide variety of information. Protecting our valuable natural resources calls for a broad knowledge of Florida’s sh and wildlife and a mastery of a variety of technical skills – both physical and mental. Also, due to their jurisdiction and specialized equipment, FWC of cers are often the rst to be able to respond to boating accidents, missing boaters and lost campers, hikers and hunters. Each year, they save around 1,000 people during search-andrescue missions. To prepare for all of that, after obtaining their law enforcement certi cation in Florida through a 19-week basic law enforcement curriculum, FWC of cers have an additional seven weeks of speci c training conducted by staff. For of cers who have already received their law enforcement credentials elsewhere, the FWC periodically conducts academies consisting only of the FWC-speci c portion. They train with their rearms, logging many hours on the range both day and night; meet some sh and wildlife species face to face, including alligators and snakes, and learn how to handle them. They practice loading and unloading boats with a trailer and operating boats in many different weather conditions. Training includes learning safe and ef cient tactics for operating all-terrain vehicles and practicing with them in the woods of the academy campus. They also don protective gear and engage in specialized defensive tactic training drills to keep themselves and others safe. They practice detecting when people are boating and driving under the in uence and learn how to follow a track left by someone in the woods. Additionally, the classroom time includes a focus on state and federal wildlife, sheries and environmental laws and learning sh and wildlife identi cation. If that seems like a lot – it is! FWC of cers are some of the most highly trained law enforcement professionals in the country. During their time at the academy, they eat, sleep, work out and study onsite, soaking up as much information as they can from staff and bonding with fellow recruits. To make it through this rigorous training and become an FWC of cer, it takes a highly motivated, hard-working individual who is passionate about protecting Florida’s outdoor paradise and the people in it. Before being selected to attend the academy, applicants complete a state of Florida application and supplemental FWC application, attend a physical tness assessment session, must pass a background check and psychological evaluation and complete an interview. It takes a special kind of person to be a law enforcement of cer, and it takes a special kind of law enforcement of cer to be an FWC of cer. Think you have what it takes? The FWC is always looking for enthusiastic new members, especially in south Florida where high population rates make for some increased enforcement challenges. There are recruiters across the state to help you through the process. To learn more, visit MyFWC.com/Get-Involved and click on “Law Enforcement Of cer.” FWC of cers-to-be living the recruit life

Church Briefs Healthiest Weight Florida was launched in January 2013 by the Florida Department of Health in response to Florida’s number one threat to public health – the challenge of weight. The initiative is gaining momentum and Florida now has the 12th healthiest weight in the nation, up from a previous rank of 19th. “With only 35% of Floridians at a healthy weight, we recognize the continuing urgency of our weight challenge,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “Florida is making progress relative to other states, yet sustained effort is essential to bend the weight curve. The Healthiest Weight Florida initiative intends to secure a healthier future for Florida’s children, adults, families, businesses, and communities.” The new ranking comes from the report F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future 2013, which was released by the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). According to the report, Florida’s obesity rate for baby boomers is almost 31 percent while the rate for seniors in Florida is just under 23 percent. The obesity rate among young adults (18-to 25-year-olds) in Florida is nearly 15 percent. The Healthiest Weight Florida initiative focuses on collaboration across state agencies, local not-for-pro ts, private organizations and others to help people make more informed choices about healthy nutrition and physical activity. Through partnerships, the initiative promotes community-based strategies to improve school, workplace, food and beverage, physical activity, and messaging environments. The F as in Fat report calls for the expansion of policies at every level to support healthy choices and for increased investment in prevention. The report acknowledges that at current rates the estimated ongoing costs to the healthcare system are unsustainable. On Florida’s current trend, the costs o f care for four chronic diseases from obesit y alone—diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and arthritis—are estimated to be $34B over the next 17 years. To learn more about this collaborative statewide effort, visit www.HealthiestWeightFL.org. Read the full report at www. fasinfat.org.

Florida ranked 12th healthiest weight in nation Submitted photoAround the globeIn June of 2110, LaBelle resident Martiline Bailey enjoyed a visit from her granddaughter, Zara Dawn Bailey, who lives in England, Zara is the author of a book called Ada, the story of a young girl taken from her parents and raised by the king and queen. Sadly her grandmother passed away this year, but Zara would like LaBelle to know that she has followed her dream of opening her very own drama and performing arts school in Birmingham, England, called “Know You. Be You” (KYBY). Against all odds and stereotypes about young people, Zara said she decided to do something positive, empower children and young people ages 5-16 to be con dent, great and shine the star in them. KYBY is an independent performing arts school. The focal point of the curriculum is the personal development of the child by creating a fun and encouraging atmosphere, where children feel comfortable to be themselves and learn through drama and performance. Zara said, “My grandma was a well loved and respected woman in the LaBelle community, which is why I am sharing this with you.” You can check her website out www.knowyoubeyou.co.uk.

Working with UF/IFAS entomologist, Dr. Phil Stansly and the GCGA leadership team, Mears helped to create and support what has become the ‘Gulf CHMA’,” Hamel added. “Whenever our leaders have called on Paul...he has gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide timely service,” Hamel said. “He represents ‘the best’ in a State of Florida, FDACS employee.” “Today, Mears continues to provide dedicated support for our CHMA efforts, offering positive advice and data resources to enhance our efforts,” said Hamel.

The Solis Family, Jesus and Marla Solis with their children, are pictured in the doorway of their new Habitat home in Port LaBelle. This was the 40th habitat for Humanity home sponsored by The Bonita Bay Group, which has been supporting Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties since the year 2000. The modest three-bedroom home will make a big difference in the lives of the family, who have been living in a two-bedroom, single-wide trailer. 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; 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. For more information on home sponsorship or to volunteer, call (239) 652-0434 or visit www.habitat4humanity.org.

Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the Permitting Authority at the above address. As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is suf cient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and location in the Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW). If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a signi cant change to the draft/proposed permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft/proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments led will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led with (received by) the Department’s Agency Clerk in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions led by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be led within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 14 days of publication of the attached Public Notice or within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review pro vided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: oquendo.ana@epamail.epa.gov. Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The nal Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or signi cant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/Florida.htm. Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

Have you noticed the virtual removal of respect in our culture? Why has the American culture become so rude? Does it bother y ou? Not too long ago, if someone was cussing in public that individual was thought to be ill-bred and ignorant. Nor was it too long ago that a real American stood to his or her feet and a gentleman took off his hat when the ag passed by in a parade. As a boy I duly noted that when a woman came in the room, all the men stood up offering her a seat. And God help the moron who didn't hold the door for a lady in public! Things have changed, though, haven't they? Today, we notice when a man doesn't swear, or if he shows any appropriate honoring of a lady. What happened? A quick review of our recent history shows there social moorings that were in place for centuries have eroded. Result: a new tone has surfaced. It seems people have shifted into an "entitlement" position, who now believe he or she is given a free cell phone, an EBT card, rent-free housing and, complete medical care with no nancial responsibility to them whatsoever. And, like the moron who was so discourteous as to not hold a door for a lady y esteryear, God have mercy on the one who says people should work for what they have instead of existing in an "I expect all my freebies" mentality. Respect is always an enhancement to any environment of people. It produces a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity such as a nation or a religion. Respect grants a feeling of regard for the actual qualities. It conducts itself in accord with a speci c ethic of respect. Rude conduct is to display disrespect. Speci c ethics of respect are of fundamental importance to various cultures. Respect for tradition and legitimate authority is identi ed by J onathan Haidt, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, as one of ve fundamental moral values shared to a greater or lesser degree by different societies and individuals. Respect one of the ten commandments given in Holy Scripture. "Honor (respect) your father and your mother" is an admonition given eight times in the Bible. Respect is both given and received. We expect other people to respect us in return for the respect we should show them. Respect cannot be measured as a quantity, cannot be bought or traded, but it is earned and built over time. However, it can be lost with one stupid or inconsiderate act. One can ask or beg for respect, but only others can bestow us with respect as a result of their perceived treatment by us. Continued caring interactions are then required to maintain original earned respect. Respect should not be confused with tolerance, since tolerance doesn't necessarily imply subordination to one's qualities but means treating as equal. Arnold Glasow wrote, "The respect of those you respect is worth more than the applause of the multitude." Motivational speaker and leader, John Maxwell, offers seven action steps that can enable people to earn respect and show respect. Respect yourself and those you work with Exceed the expectations of others Stand rm on your convictions and principles Possess maturity beyond your years Experience success in your family life and career Contribute to the success of others Think ahead of others Respect of others begins with self-respect and comes with understanding a person is created in God's image. Respect is a building block of meaningful relationships. To place value on others always results in others being enhanced, including yourself. Ari Kiev writes, "Everyone wants to feel that he/ she counts for something and is important to someone. Invariably, people will give their love, respect, and attention to the person who lls that need." The opposite is true, too. Disrespecting others causes tension to escalate. Respecting others causes others to exceed what they have done before. By setting high personal standards for yourself sets a standard that encourages others to get rid of the "get by" mentality and push toward excellence and not just adequacy. Respect is seated in strong personal principles. There is another word for those principles convictions! Strong convictions precede great actions. Often it is tempting to make palatable decisions that promise safety instead of bold ones that involve risk. Godly people aren't afraid to say what their convictions are and call others to take the higher road. That always leads to increasing the dignity of others. Taking a stand is not always easy. It requires respecting what is true, right and honorable. As Ed Cole said, "this doesn't come with age; it comes with acceptance o f responsibility." So, do you miss respect in our society? Begin to bring change by setting a pattern the models respect. Respect God's Word, truth, what is honorable and af rms others. Let's get after that, shall we?Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80 across from City Hall.

You don’t have to drive to Okeechobee to enjoy the food at Lightsey’s Restaurant. any more. Lightsey’s Fish Co. and Restaurant is opened open in The Glades just a 10-15 minute drive from LaBelle east on SR 80. Owner Ray Arrants has over 30 years in the original Okeechobee location, that was opened in 1977 by his dad Charles B. Arrants and uncle Andy. Ray grew up in the business it’s in his blood. As a boy at age Twelve, he would w ork doing everything from busing tables to shucking oysters. He learned from his dad and uncle soaking up their passion for nothing but the very best in seafood. He buys the sh and seafood he serves himself, w ith painstaking attention to quality. Ray hand picks all their sh and meat himself with an eye toward quality and a “no skimping” approach. As Ray says, “Never compromise quality and my customers will come back.” When looking for a place to expand, Ray was drawn to the “potential” of the location on the Caloosahatchee River about ten miles east of LaBelle, next to The Glades Park. Lightsey’s proudly serves fresh seafood and lake delicacies. Whatever seafood makes you smile, you’ll nd at Lightsey’s. Fresh dolphin, whole cat sh (or sharpies if you ask the ole timers), frogs, even gator tenderloin and Lightsey’s original cat nger lets. You’ll surely come back for the smoked sh dip and gator appetisers For the hearty appetite there’s a 20-ounce steak and you’ll de nitely want to try the chowders, stews and bisque. Watch for the daily specials along with their original fare and new items. Enjoy your favorites, then nish your meal with a lovely peach cobbler or key lime pie. Sunday is a perfect time to enjoy their all you can eat buffet. Manager Wendy Long is proud of their trained staff and quality of service she says is “a cut above.” In addition to head cook Lisa Bird, there are two full time cooks and an intern. The wait staff are part timers. Diners will notice the display case which Ray plans to ll with sh and fresh desserts later. You can also pick up some of Lighsey’s own seasoning developed by Ray’s dad. There is loft dining with spectacular views of the river and a private dining area is coming soon. Plans are to make Lightsey’s a lively spot for friends and family to meet. There will be a band once a month and great events like Halloween parties. They expect to build a dock as well. Did we mention that Lightsey’s can be accessed from The Glades Marina? Don’t forget to look for Lightsey’s Facebook listing. Actually, you won’t just go there for the food. Lightsey’s has it all. The ambiance at Lightsey’s is amazing. No matter how many times you’ve been there you’ll want to check out the spectacular antique mirrored bar and stained glass window panes. Future plans include selling whole sh and oysters by the bushel and a breakfast menu. Look for some outdoor dining Lightsey’s is on a lovely spot on the river, you know. Look for wraps, salads, sandwiches and a bigger dessert menu. Lightsey’s is open Monday-Thursda y 11:30-7:30; Friday and Saturday 11:30-9 and Sunday noon till 6 seafood buffet only. Just remember Lightsey’s motto: “if it swims, crawls or hops we probably serve it.” Lightsey’s: Seafood like it was meant to be
