Many times I read the message “shop local” and I started thinking I should “shop local”. I mean, I try to support the local retailers and shop here as often as I can, but, I wondered, do I really know what is available to purchase here. So, I decided that I would do some research to nd out what I can buy and then it hit me that I should do my Christmas Shopping in LaBelle. With that in mind, I decided I would cover a different type of item each week and share my ndings with you. Maybe y ou will want to do your Christmas shopping locally, too. In fact, I challenge you to do it. It’s only 7 w eeks till Christmas, plenty of time to shop around and see what’s out there for sale. I’m starting now because I suddenly realized there are a lot of places to shop and I have a lot of shopping to do. On my rst excursion around town I found Victorian aprons made from antique lace and linens. How cute is that?

And then, of course, there are the favorite children in your life and you want to buy them something really special. I found challenging puzzles, board games, handmade toys, athletic equipment, craft items and books. And the best part of all this is, it is right here in LaBelle. I am getting excited now.

Florida manatees are beginning their annual migration to warmer waters, which is their instinctual response to winter’s approach and surviving the cold. As these slowmoving aquatic mammals migrate along rivers, canals, bays and coastlines, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) cautions boaters to slow down and w atch out for manatees. The average adult manatee is 1,000 pounds and 10-feet long but may be dif cult to spot despite its size. “You can help manatees by slowing down and following posted speed zones w hen operating boats or personal watercraft. Manatees often feed in shallow seagrass beds adjacent to deeper waters,” said Carol Knox, the FWC’s Imperiled Species Management Section Leader. “Wearing polarized sunglasses helps you spot a manatee underwater. Also watch for circular wave patterns on the water’s surface – called manatee footprints – indicating a manatee’s presence below.” Throughout the state, many seasonal manatee protection zones go into effect Nov. 15. Look for signs posted on the water indicating boat speed zones. A “slow speed” zone means a boat should be completely settled in the water, not creating an excessive wake. Go to MyFWC.com/Manatee, and click on Data and Maps to see FWC manatee protection zones. November is also Manatee Awareness Month, a time to celebrate Florida’s of cial state marine mammal. The FWC asks people to report sick, injured, orphaned, entangled or dead manatees by calling the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922), texting Tip@MyFWC.com, or calling #FWC and *FWC via cell phone. Floridians can support manatee conservation efforts by purchasing a manatee license plate at BuyaPlate.com or through their local tax collector’s of ce when obtaining or renewing a vehicle tag. They also can get a manatee decal at those of ces or by visiting MyFWC.com/Manatee and clicking on “Decals.” 4 Caloosa Belle November 7, 2013Serving LaBelle Since 1922To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

Helping SantaThe LaBelle Chamber of Commerce has an event called Christmas in the Park. It is an event that brings a lot of our surrounding area families to Barron Park for an evening of fun and enjoyment for all. We have Santa and Mrs. Claus on the stage with an elf to help direct the children. We have a shing booth where the children put a line over the wall and pull out a little toy. There is a small charge for that. The cost is $1.00 for three tickets. Our biggest attraction is the “snow!” The Chamber has never charged for this, nor do we want to. But due to our nancial situation we need to solicit some funding. This is our biggest expense. As you are well aware, the agricultural industry is large in our area. We also have a large Hispanic population that helps us manage and harvest our crops. The majority of the people that come to this event are Hispanic. Instead of charging these families for enjoying the snow we are asking our agriculture community for some assistance. The cost to bring in the snow is $5,600.00. We are all thankful for the folks that manage and harvest our crops, and to see the children’s faces and the enjoyment they get from this event is priceless. I hope you will consider making a contribution to this worthwhile endeavor. Not only will you be helping your LaBelle Chamber but also our vital agricultural community. Please make checks payable to LaBelle Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 456, LaBelle, FL 33975. Sincerely, Bryan Beer Chamber President Letter to the Editor Have you ever considered that the Eskimos are outstanding hunters? It sounds strange to think about that, but it is true! The reason the Eskimos are among the greatest hunters on earth is because of the enormous skill that is required to be successful in that environment. It is one thing to be “chilled” in the woods of Southwest Florida in January, but when one is hunting in sub-zero degree weather, well, that’s a different day. However, there is one animal that is the most dif cult for the Eskimos to catch. This animal has the greatest intellect, keenest smell, and the sharpest eyesight. And yet for the Eskimos to survive they must trap and kill this animal before it destroys their way of life. The animal I speak of is the white wolf. The white wolf has a sense of smell that can detect the presence of a human up to 2 miles away. It’s suggested that his eyesight is so great that if man had the same eyesight he could read a newspaper from 150 yards away. It is their eyesight, sense of smell, and their cunning that make them the most difcult animal to bring down. And yet, the Eskimos have devised a tactic that never fails. The Eskimos say there is no sense in going against all the ability that the white wolf possesses. To bring down the white wolf, the Eskimos take a knife and sharpen it to a razor’s edge, put it outside and let it freeze, dip it in blood, freeze, again and again until there is a thick coat of blood on the knife. Then they go out into the wilderness and plant it in the ground blade up. The wolf scenting what is on the blade, and sensing that there is no danger, believes he has a free lunch. There is nothing to be alarmed about, so he makes his way to the knife. The blood has drawn him to it, and he licks it and nothing happens, he licks again and again. But with each lick he is working his way closer and closer to what’s going to destroy him. Now, the white wolf gets comfortable and licks faster and faster as he tastes the frozen blood. Then he gets to the blade and slices his tongue but doesn’t even know it, because he is numbed by the bloody ice. Now he is tasting his own blood, but he continues to lick until the blade is clean and his tongue is shredded. He never walks more than a mile before he bleeds to death and the hunter has won. It is similar to the tactic that the devil uses to attack Christians. The devil says there no sense in going against the power of God in you. How many Christians have been tempted to give into sin, tempted to mix God’s standards with the world’s, tempted to take that lustful glance, that rst drink, to tell that little white lie, to cheat on a test, to cheat on their taxes, or to cheat on their spouse. and have taken that rst, second, third lick not knowing that their getting closer to what’s going to destroy them. The devil has planted blades all around us. And all he wants you to do is to get comfortable with the rst lick. No one will ever see, no one will ever know. Your safe, there is no harm. But with every lick you’re getting closer to the blade, to destruction, to death. The blades that Satan offers appear to be beautiful, desirable, something to be longed for, something that will bring satisfaction and pleasure. But they will destroy your life. Countless Christians have been overcome by things that Satan has set in front of them and they lost everything that was truly dear to them, their home, marriage, family, and friends. The lesson is clear. What do you need to be on the lookout for?Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80 across the street from City Hal l What the Eskimos and the Devil do very well Les Morgan The LaBelle Moose Lodge 2398 would like to sincerely thank all those who so generously donated to our Halloween candy fund drive.

Filled with vivid imagery, apocalyptic visions and mysterious gures, Revelation is one of the most intriguing books in Scripture. We read it wondering, “Who is the Beast? The Lamb? The Dragon? When will all this take place?” It leaves us with a number of questions. But, as its name implies, Revelation is intended to REVEAL the divine mysteries to us. It pulls back the veil of heaven and shows us the glories of the Kingdom of God. And in midst of this vision we discover something amazing. We see how our faith, our liturgy, and our worship are a participation in the liturgy of heaven. In Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come you will learn the keys to understanding this mysterious book. You will see how heaven is made mystically present to us in the Mass. You will see how the images and events of Revelation make sense in light of our Catholic faith. Most importantly, you will learn how the book of Revelation can be a source of inspiration and encouragement as we strive to live our faith in the world. Join us for Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come at Our Lady Queen of Heaven in the Parish Of ce beginning January 9, at 7 p.m. and continuing every Thursday until April 3, 2014. For more information or to register for the study call Eric Myer at (863) 517-1096. Registration is until December 15.

My brother was diagnosed with cancer when he was just a toddler; my sister w as diagnosed when she was a teenager; and now my hero, my Dad, has been diagnosed. My Dad has been diagnosed with lung cancer, and he is currently ghting the tough battle. Unfortunately, lung cancer doesn't get much awareness. I would like to have a hand in changing that. My Dad is not the only one battling this terrible disease, and I want all those who are currently battling, those who have battled, and loved ones of those who have passed from this disease to know that we're all in this together. Nobody has to ght alone; their battle is our battle! "November is lung cancer awareness month, and the color representing lung cancer is white. I am asking everyone who can and will to please wear white on Friday, November 15." "Daddy, Your Battle is My Battle! I love you to the moon!"

by Amanda NelsonIf your child attends one of the many schools in our area, then odds are he or she is going to have homework at some point during his or her educational career. The point of this article is not to debate whether or not children should have homework or how much homework is considered too much. We all have our own opinions. I am simply going to offer some tips that might help make the process a little easier! Generally speaking, the purpose of doing homework is to ensure that concepts are understood well enough for a child to arrive at the correct answers independently, outside of the classroom and without a teacher’s help. Homework also provides time for practice of new material, preparation for activities that will occur in the classroom and extension assignments that will apply previous learning to complete long term projects such as science fair projects or research reports. I truly believe one of the best things you can do when it comes to homework is to create a routine! Here are a few ideas that can be implemented at home to make it all a bit easier and more manageable. Give your kids a break! Please do not expect them to come home from school and sit down to do more work as soon as they walk in the door. They have been bombarded all day with skills and drills, and they need to relax! Allow them some time to have a healthy snack and play outside. This will give them a chance to unwind before tackling the homework that remains ahead. A tired kid can equal a frustrated kid! If you see that your child is growing frustrated while doing homework then STOP! At this point learning has ceased. The harder you push your kid the more stressed you are both going to get. It is okay to take a short break during homework too! Try breaking the activities into two or three shorter segments. Make sure that you have a designated are a and time for your child to study. It should be a well lit area with limited distractions. Keep necessary materials within reach so that time is not wasted searching for whatever is needed. Turn off the television, but do allo w soft music if your child prefers some white noise while working. If time constraints are a factor then consider limiting extracurricular activities. It is great to get kids involved in clubs, sports or other interests but don’t overdo it! If you are staying up late at night to nish homework, then it might be time to re-examine your child’s social calendar! Also, be creative and use travel time in the car to practice ashcard or reading skills! When you and your child do not understand an assignment then it is time to see k help. See if the teacher has any tips on the school’s website, look over class work that was sent home, ask a relative, call a classmate or search for free sites on the internet that might offer assistance. When all else fails and you honestly cannot complete an assignment send the teacher a note, email or phone call explaining the situation. The teacher might be able to pair your child up with a homework buddy or suggest other resources that will be helpful. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, please don’t allow older siblings to complete your child’s homework! This makes the homework pointless and only hurts your child in the end. It is ne to lend a helping hand to provide guidance, but it is your child’s responsibility to provide the answers!

Coach Chris Siner said, “We played a really good game Friday night. Unfortunately, to beat a team as good as Clewistion you have to play a perfect game. We made some mistakes toward the end that cost us. Great effort by the Cowboys though!” Pictured: Caleb Rimes. This Friday November 9 Homecoming! 4 p.m. Homecoming parade down Main Street into Barron Park. The Cowboys meet Moore Haven Terriers at home 7:30 p.m. For the rst time in school history, both of the LaBelle High School Cross County teams w ill be headed to the State Finals. the girls cross country team will be making its rst appearance in over ten years and, for the boys, it's a repeat and third time in the past four years. "Both of these teams have worked so hard this year," said Coach Frost. "I am very happy for both teams. They really deserved this! The girls' team has been so consistent all year, placing either rst or second in the smaller Tuesday races and usually in the top third at invitationals (which usually have many larger schools). At regionals this past Saturday in Tarpon Springs the girls were led once again by senior Ana Figueroa. she placed seventh overall with a time of 21:59. Sophomore Ana Arreola was 15th overall w ith a time of 22:24 Next in for the girls were freshman Esmeralda Rodriguez and sophomore Thelma Santigo, who nished 26th and 25 with times of 22:54 and 22:58, respectively. Senior Tess Frost nished the scoring for the Cowgirls, nishing 35th and posting a time of 23:37. J uniors Bianey Serrano and Mayra Ramirez also ran well for the girls' team. With their strong fourth place nish (out of 11 teams), the Cowgirls made it to State, outdistancing the fth place team from Berkeley Prep by 20 points and the sixth place team from Anclote by over 90 points (top six move on to the State nal Saturday in Tallahassee). The boys team also nished fourth despite some sub-par performances from a couple if its top runners. "I don't know if was the weather, the course or maybe even some pressure to also make it to State once the girls quali ed," said Coach Frost. "They (the boys) have run well all year. I guess it was their time for a let-down of some kind." The timing was not good for the Cowboys as the fourth, fth and sixth spots would be decided by four teams. "We knew it was going to be tough," Coach Frost added. "When I noticed they were not running their best I though for sure we were going home!" But their times were good enough as they beat out ( fth place) Lemon Bay by a mere seven points and Berkeley Prep (sixth place) by almost thirty. The Cowboys were led by senior Joel Chairez (18th) with a time of 17:49, sophomore Enrique Jienez (22nd) 17:58, sophomore Justin Reyes (27th) 18:04, sophomore Dalton Hyser (42nd) 18:50 and sophomore Eduardo Benitez (52nd) 19:23. Pedro Dimas and Omar Pena also ran well for the Cowboys.
