CPR Tools was named Business of the Year. This year’s LaBelle Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year has one of the most recognizable faces in town even though it’s often hidden behind bright makeup. She has an irresistable way of sharing smiles and an inabilit y to say no to just about any good cause. She’s Mary Bartoshuk and she’s one of a kind. She is also the rst person ever to win the LaBelle Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Award for the second time. She was honored in 2007 by the chamber.

(If you don’t count the spot on Donald Duck impression.) Rep. Hudson told the group, “The chamber of commerce is about how we present our businesses” and “They do amazing things.” He continued by saying that growth is “tremendous” in Florida and “Your state is headin g in the ri g ht direction.” He also noted that Florida has a surplus and a balanced budget. He commented on the upcoming Legislative session in the Spring, predicting much discussion on jobs and honing in on rural economic development a particular interest of his. Also expect the Legislature to consider bills concerning gaming and gambling, health (esecially Alzheimer’s Disease) and a subject very important to Hendry County’s Lake Okeechobee and Caloosahatchee River water quality.

Five hundred years ago this year in 1513 Ponce de Leon rst set foot on North America, and he did it in what is now our home Florida! Hendry County’s Heritage Festival is our chance to shed a spotlight on our own unique contribution to Florida. Hendry’s celebration will take place at the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds on November 9, beginning at 9 a.m. The fun doesn’t end until after the last cowboy hangs up his spurs at the rodeo. 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. The covered pavilion may be lled but tents will be available for vendors/exhibitors throughout the Rodeo Grounds. Organizers need to know how many vendors will need electricity for their booth. If you want to be in a 10x10 tent, those will have those available. FYI: Good weather has been ordered and November can be very nice! Ponce de Leon is credited with bringing cattle, horses and citrus to Florida on his second expedition and the cracker cattle and ponies of today can be traced back to that time. These days history reveals a dark side to the European “discovery” of this continent, but the fact remains that there is much to be celebrated as well. That’s what the Hendry County Heritage Festival is all about celebrating what is best about our forefathers (and foremothers!) contributed to our own history. The hope is that every area of the county will join in this once in a lifetime experience. There are lots of traditions and “lost” arts to celebrate. o you share a common community, ancestry, faith, industry or talent? Can you give today’s residents a meaningful look back at life in “the old days” of Hendry County? Organizers are hoping people with talents that re ect those days will share their stories and their skills. Does your family have a “coat of arms?” Do you have any old photographs to share? Can you weave palm fronds into hats? Can you whittle? Can you make sour orange pie? Play a ddle? This will be a great opportunty to be a part of a unique event. If you have a good idea, the committee would love to hear it. A poster contest is under way to create a design and promote Viva Florida 500 Hendry County Heritage Festival that will be suitable for promotional materials and T-shirts. This is open to all ages. For contest rules and applications for booth space, exhibitor registration etc., send an e-mail request to jpapinaw@hendry a.net. Celebrate Florida 500 Eighteen-year-old Joshua D.

I grew up in Fort Myers. After I was old enough to get a job I worked the summers doing construction jobs. I learned about concrete, framing, laying block, and other various jobs. I worked for hard men and learned a lot about foremen and superintendents on the job. I enjoyed framing houses because the work went fast and it was easy to see immediate results. When we framed a house we used the biggest pieces of lumber, the biggest tools and worked as fast as we could. That t my personality for that is how I like to live. Once we nished framing the house and dried it in (roof on and drywall put up), the nishing work would begin. There is where it all started to bog down. Progress virtually comes to a grinding halt. Construction would go from warp speed to a snail's pace! The nishing work, like putting up ceiling trim (sometimes in three layers), nailing baseboards or painting and hanging cabinet doors is often very slow, and very tedious. The reason is clear: it has to be awless. Up to that point a worker, when putting up studs in a wall, can hit a 16-penny nail as hard as he wants with the biggest hammer he can swing. However, he can't do that when nailing up trim inside the house! He has to use tiny nails and a smaller hammer. Finishing work is slow and tedious. Yet, the nishing work is what people see. They don't see the studs inside the wall or the oor joists or the roof timbers. They see the nishing work. Thus, it has to be right and it has to be perfect. The illustration is clear and the application is abundant: when we are born again through faith in Jesus Christ it is a dramatic work of God and it happens fast. We start growing spiritually, learning the Bible for the rst time, making new discoveries and experiencing big changes in our lives. Salvation is God framing our lives, and we see big changes at a rapid pace. It is exciting! However, as we continue to grow spiritually, the changes that God makes in us and that we want to make get smaller. Those changes are much more detailed, less noticeable to others and are often more dif cult to achieve. We move from God's framing work to His nishing work. Just like construction, God's nishing work is time consuming and much more intricate. He continues His work as He shapes us into the image of Jesus Christ. Just like it takes a lot more time and work to nish a house than it does to frame one, so Christian maturity likewise requires time and patience. So are you getting discouraged with your struggles and issues in your Christian walk? Are you trying to make changes in your life? Here's something we all need to remember. God's plan and timetable is different than ours. Be patient. The Lord is faithful to nish the good work He started in you when He saved you by His grace! "Let us x our eyes on Jesus, the author and the nisher of our faith!" (Hebrews 12:2) Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church, located on Highway 80 in LaBelle, across the street from City Hall. God’s Finishing Work: Tedious but worth it Les Morgan Fun for allWe would like to thank A2L Party Rentals for donating a water slide and bounce house to our church barbecue on Saturday, Oct 12. All the children had a wonderful time. Thank you and God bless, LaBelle Revival Cente r Letters to the Editor The National Park Service (NPS) at Big Cypress National Preserve and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) have worked cooperatively to modify the hunting seasons within the Big Cypress Wildlife Management Area (WMA). This modi cation will help make up for hunting days missed due to the recent federal government shutdown. After consultation with the NPS, the FWC has issued an executive order that will extend the archery and muzzleloading gun hunts in the WMA. "This cooperative effort between the Preserve and the Commission highlights the strong partnership between the two agencies," said Big Cypress National Preserve Superintendent Pedro Ramos. The order, issued Friday, Oct. 18, will add an additional six days of archery hunting and ve days of muzzleloading gun hunting. The archery hunt will run from Oct. 31 through Nov. 5. in all units of the WMA. The muzzeloading gun hunt will run from Nov. 6 through Nov. 10 in all units except Deep Lake. There is no quota for either of these extended hunt seasons. The current muzzleloading gun season will continue as scheduled, ending on Oct. 27. "We are pleased that our partners at the National Park Service have helped us extend the hunting season to make up for the time lost while the Preserve was closed," said FWC South Regional Director Chuck Collins. "We hope that hunters are able to get out and enjoy these opportunities." The shutdown, from Oct. 1-16, reduced the archery season by six days and the muzzleloading season by ve days. Regulations speci c to the wildlife management areas can be viewed at MyFWC. com/Hunting. If you have additional questions, please call the FWC's South Regional Of ce at 561-625-5122.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) serves local patients and their families through its Cancer Resource Center, located at the United Way House on Bridge Street. Patients can nd prosthetics, wigs, scarves, hats, etc. there all manner of items to help them feel better about themselves while they're going through the trials of chemotherapy and radiation. Also, the ACS's Look Good Feel Better program in which professional cosmetologists help women bolster their self esteem as they go through their lives coping with cancer. In LaBelle, Letty Balderas of Salon Eight Four uses her expertise for the American Cancer Society's Look Good Feel Better program. Since 2011 Letty has helped breast cancer patients get to a better frame of mind by simply showing them how to use makeup to mask the effects of the disease and treatment and looking better always helps you feel better. Once contacted by the ACS with a client, Letty takes over to work her special kind of magic. Often the client coming in is under a lot of stress, confused and not really sure about w hat's happening. When they come to Letty, she rst shows them a short video of what this program is all about. She gives them a kit from the Personal Products Consultant Foundation, which works with the ACS, providing top brand, hypo-alergenic cosmetics and skin care products essential to helping them regain some of their con dence and feelings of self worth. She teaches them how to apply makeup Most are feeling and showing the effects of chemotherapy, so she shows them how to ll in their eyebrows. She asks them to bring in their wig (which they can get from the Resource Center) and she will cut it in a becoming style suited to them. Letty said many of these women feel awkw ard at rst, even that what they're doing is "sel sh." They need to understand that they are carrying a lot on their shoulders family, friends, often a job trying to keep everything together. This Look Good Feel Better program is a much needed time devoted to taking care of themselves. A little morale boost can go a long way toward helping smooth out the rough spots. A 2002 LaBelle High School graduate, Letty said she is part of this program because it is important. "This is my community," she said, "and I will support it any way I can." For information on how to deal with cancer, contact the United Way House 211 line. Call the United Way House at 1-800-887-9234 and select Option 9. Reach To Recovery The American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery program helps people cope with their breast cancer experience. When people rst nd out they have breast cancer, they may feel overwhelmed, vulnerable, and alone. While under this stress, many people must also learn about and try to understand complex medical treatments and then choose the best one. Talking with a specially trained Reach to Recovery volunteer can give a measure of comfort and an opportunity for emotional grounding and informed decision-making. V olunteers are breast cancer survivors who give patients and family members an opportunity to express feelings, talk about fears and concerns, and ask questions of someone who is knowledgeable and level-headed. Most importantly, Reach to Recovery volunteers offer understanding, support, and hope because they themselves have survived breast cancer and gone on to live normal, productive lives. Through face-to-face visits or by phone, Reach to Recovery volunteers give support for: People recently diagnosed with breast cancer People facing a possible diagnosis of breast cancer Those interested in or who have undergone a lumpectomy or mastectomy Those considering breast reconstruction Those who have lymphedema Those who are undergoing or who have completed treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy People facing breast cancer recurrence or metastasis (the spread of cancer to another part of the body) Volunteers are trained to give support and up-to-date information, including literature for spouses, children, friends, and other loved ones. Volunteers can also, when appropriate, provide breast cancer patients with a temporary breast form and information on types of permanent prostheses, as well as lists of where those items are available within a patient's community. No products are endorsed. Reach to Recovery works through carefully selected and trained volunteers who have fully adjusted to their breast cancer treatment. All volunteers complete an initial training and participate in ongoing continuing education sessions. If you are a breast cancer survivor and would like to volunteer, call 1-800-2272345 to become a Reach to Recovery volunteer. 8 Caloosa Belle October 24, 2013 Services here for local cancer patients Submitted photoThings took a little different turn at the LHS Cowboys football game against Riverdale October 11.

The event was coordinated by FHREDI, Florida’s Heartland Regional Economic Dev elopment Initiative and the Heartland Educational Consortium. The purpose of the event was to bring together the Heartland educators and economic developers under one roof with Governor Scott to learn about w hat is happening in our region, what efforts are being made, and where the Governor is leading the State. Economic development is extremely competitive and education and workforce preparedness are critical factors in attracting and retaining businesses. A trained workforce is a product of education. Florida is striving to lead the way in workforce development and career-path based education that will prepare students to be productive at the next level after high school. The Hendry County Economic Development Council had a booth at the event highlighting the attributes of Hendry County. This event also enhanced the momentum of the EDC’s Hendry County Education Improvement Task Force. The Task Force is gearing up to create a strategic plan that will make a positive difference for Hendry County students and their preparedness for higher education, workforce or the military. These are the Hendry County leaders who attended the Governor’s regional event.

This year’s Caloosa Chase 5K run was the biggest ever, according to LaBelle High School Cross Country Coach Jef Frost. “It was a rst for us in many ways. We had over seventy runners in the 5k and then another twenty to twentyve in the 1 Mile Fun Run, and we ran out of t-shirts that has never happened before”. Frost also added, “next year we will be a little more organized for a larger group. Also, it will be our 20th year; so I hope to do some special to mark the occasion (maybe breakfast?).” The rst runner to cross the nish line in this year’s race was former LHS Cross Country runner and current Webber Universit y student-athlete Gabriel Barron. He recorded a course record time of 16:25 for the 3.1 mile course. The rst female runner to cross the nish line was Jackie Galbraith, who had a time of 23:55.

Putnam four honorees who w ill be inducted into the Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame for 2014. These individuals have made outstanding contributions to Florida’s agriculture industry and mentored future leaders in this eld. Retired Director of the University of Florida Hendry County Extension Of ce, Dallas served 39 years as an extension agent in Southwest Florida and was instrumental in working with IFAS and the agriculture industry to bring more research capacity to the area through the UF/IFAS Southwest Florida Research and Education Center. His involvement with youth and 4-H is legendary, coaching more than a dozen 4-H teams and thousands of 4-H youth. The award winners will be honored on Feb. 11, 2014 at the Ag Hall of Fame Dinner Current Director of the UF Hendry County Extension Of ce, Gene McAvoy wrote the following letter in support of Dallas’ nomnation. “As a life-long Floridian, Dallas Townsend has worked tirelessly during his 39 years with the University of Florida Extension Service to serve the needs of the farmers and ranchers of Southwest Florida and help improve their productivity and economic well-being. “In an age of increasing specialization, Dallas stands out as a county extension agent who was broadly versed in a range of subjects and who could converse with and relate equally with producers of all types from citrus to livestock to vegetables. Throughout his career, Dallas worked on a range of practical issues from fertility programs to pest and disease management as well as pesticide and worker safety programming that bene tted farmers and ranchers large and small. “In addition to his willingness to help others, Dallas displayed a keen awareness of the larger picture and realized that if the agricultural industry in Southwest Florida was to remain competitive in the global market place and contribute economically to the wellbeing of the region; farmers and ranchers would require assistance at the macro level. To this end, he was instrumental in working with IFAS and agricultural industry in bringing the research capacity to the area through the establishment of the UF/IFAS Southwest Florida Research and Education Center. He was also instrumental in working with the Hendry County Extension Advisory Committee in obtaining grants for a new Hendry Co Extension Center. “Dallas was active in a number of organizations including the Hendry County Cattlemen’s Association, Gulf Citrus Growers Association and the South Florida Ag Council. “Dallas pioneered the multi-county Extension Agent concept and under his leadership garnered the support of the agricultural industry, the University of Florida and local governments in SW Florida to establish the Hendry County Extension Of ce as the regional agricultural extension of ce for Southwest Florida. This agreement provides agricultural interests in SW Florida with four specialized agents in the areas of citrus, livestock, sugarcane and vegetables who are able to provide the level of expertise required by commercial agriculture in the region. “Dallas’s involvement with youth and 4-H is legendary. His fundamental belief in the power of youth has made him a leader in this regard. Dallas coached 16 Hendry Count y 4-H Meats Judging Teams from 1980–1999, with three of his teams taking rst place in National Competition. Over the course of his career, he inspired and touched the lives o f literally thousands of 4-H youth. “His nomination was supported by a great many area agricultural leaders including Hugh English, former VP at Duda, Ron Hamel, Gulf Citrus Growers, Dr Bernie Lester, retired CEO Alico, Tom Jones, Barron Collier Companies, Joe Marlin Hilliard, John Stitt and others.” Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame honors Dallas Townsend
