This was before I told her of the challenge I was putting out in the Caloosa Belle. It looks like some of us LaBellians are on the same brainwave-length. I hope as you read this you will add y ourself to the list of local shoppers. Last week we shopped jewelry and found some beautiful items. This week we are changing direction and looking for tools and electronics. Yes, you will nd them in LaBelle. Do not limit your imagination; think about that unusual gift. Come up with something totally unexpected. The recipient will appreciate that you took the time to come up with a non-traditional gift and the ”local” store owner can add another sale to pro t for this y ear. It’s a win-win. So, what do you think about gifting power tools? There are drills, pneumatic nail guns, tool kits, saws, screw drivers, specialty tools, tool kits, and, oh my, there are too many items to mention. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Hendry County’s state legislators, District 80 Representative Matt Hudson and District 39 Senator Dwight Bullard, were in LaBelle for the annual Legislative Delegation meeting Monday to hear rst-hand where local residents feel they should put their efforts in the upcoming Legislative Session. Rep. Hudson chaired the meeting. County Administrator Charles Chapman was rst up, describing the ongoing problems with the Medicaid adjustments. Economic incentive funding for infrastructure were high on the county’s request list as were quality of life concerns including water issues, parks conservation easements to preserve Hendry County’s natural appeal and to work with the federal government to clean up water ow through Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee River. Mr. Chapman referred to speci c projects in the county’s request. Rep. Hudson cautioned that considerable documentation will be required for these projects and that it should be presented as early as possible. Funds to renovate the aging courthouse are again in the request with updated gures. On behalf of the City of LaBelle, Director o f Finance Ron Zimmerly presented requests to enhance Barron Park and the new Regional Sports Park as well as drainage and the continuation of the city’s wharf project. Also important to the city: rehab for the historic Captain Hendry House and construction of Helms Road Extension. Edison State College, LaBelle Center Director Jeff Gibbs noted the upswing in enrollment at this campus and in the number of credit hours students are taking. He said ESC is working with Airglades Airport’s inland port plans. The campus is in dire need of building and roo f refurbishments, he told the legislators, with two roofs already having been completed. Mr. Gibbs also noted the coming name change for the school, to Florida Southwestern State College. A con ict with another college out of state is causing the change, which will also help to regionalize the college, he said. Continuing the education speakers, Superintendent of Schools Paul Puletti rst offered appreciation for the Legislature’s assistance with a recycling program, saying we have been “well served” by our Legislative Delegates. He went on to explain that schools need some exibility in how they can use state funding and that a fair and transparent system o f school grading is needed. He is also seeking a better mental health delivery plan for students in need. Both legislators agreed more needs to be done in the area of student mental health for kids in the “highest degree of crisis.” Florida Gulf Coast University’s presentation focused on the funding it received last year for student advisors and technical infrastructure. The university also works with small develLocals seek support from legislators Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantFlorida State Representative Matt Hudson, left, chaired the 2013 Legislative Delegation in LaBelle.

Both legislators lauded the programs at FGCU. Two LaBelle High School students did a presentation for the Tobacco Free Partnership/Students Against Tobacco decrying the availability of candy avored tobacco products targeted toward kids. Pat Dobbins represented the Department of Health, saying Hendry-Glades has some of the worst health statistics in the state, particularly for obesity, heart disease and hypertension. She pointed out that small counties like Hendry have uniquely rural issues. These 33 Florida counties need a position to facilitate discussion among them to address their shared problems. She echoed the superintendent of schools, saying the health department also needs exibility in its funding to address unique situations. Ms. Dobbins also did the presentation for Healthy Start which focused on ensuring “above average outcomes for high risk patients.” Arlene Betancourt spoke for Healthy Families, explaining the successes of that program in reaching high risk clients, “saving kids and tax money.” She asked that funding be maintained, explaining that it costs the state $72,000 per year to serve each abused child and just $1,200 per year per child in services to prevent the abuse. Lee Memorial Health System’s presentation centered on care for the uninsured. Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council’s presentation asked the legislators to support the federal water policy for Lake Okeechobee releases and Everglades ood insurance. Angela Hill asked for funding for the Central County Water Control District, to construct the nal 2.5 miles of a levee. This project ties in with water quality issues for all of South Florida. Under public comment, area agriculturalists spoke about the University of Florida’s plan to degrade the Immokalee IFAS research center to a demonstration facility. Gulf Coast Citrus Association’s Ron Hamil began by thanking the legislators for critical funding to combat deadly crop diseases like citrus greening, but explained that funding for the center is critical for area agriculture to survive. Former Ag Agent and long time agriculturalist Dallas Townsend noted the damage done by severe funding cuts. Clewiston Mayor Phillip Roland pleaded for work to clean up north of Lake Okeechobee, the source of contaminated water that ows into the lake and the Caloosahatchee River, eventually causing environmental problems on both the East and West Coast estuaries. Water needs to be stored and cleaned north of the lake as well as south of it, he maintained. Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden was seeking funding for a new jail. After 20 years, he said the jail has reached its life span. A new facility is critical, he told the legislators, which would cost under $25 million. Senator Bullard said he would help get the funding and suggested that sheriff’s personnel concentrate on the amount of data supporting the project.

Independent is owned by a unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the community. Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in Independents mission of journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the communitys deliberation of public issues.We Pledgeƒ€To operate this newspaper as a public trust €To help our community become a better place to live and work, through our dedication to conscientious journalism. €To provide the information citizens need to make their own intelligent decisions about public issues. €To report the news with honesty, accuracy, purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compassion. €To use our opinion pages to facilitate community debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions. €To disclose our own conflicts of interest or potential conflicts to our readers. €To correct our errors and to give each correction the prominence it deserves. €To provide a right to reply to those we write about. €To treat people with courtesy, respect and compassion. There are many calls given in the Scripture for people to give thanks. For example, Ps. 107:8-9 tells us “Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satis es the longing soul, and lls the hungry soul with goodness.” In Ps. 106:1-2 we are told to “Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can declare all His praise?” There are times when a personal declaration is given: “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.” (Ps. 69:30). In Deuteronomy 8:10 we nd it is appropriate to thank God for His provisions of food. Paul reminds us in Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” To those in the city of Thessalonica he says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thess, 5:1618) And David calls the people to “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. (Ps. 100:4.) Rather than rolling your eyes when it’s your turn to bow your head and give thanks, try being grateful. The result just might be good for you. From boosting your mood to improving your relationships, research shows that being thankful is good for your health. If you don’t want to voice your gratitude, writing a letter may do the trick, according to various studies by Steve Toepfer of Kent State University at Salem and his colleagues. “If you are looking to increase your wellbeing through intentional activities, take 15 minutes three times over three weeks and write letters of gratitude to someone,” Toepfer said in a statement, referring to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Happiness Studies. Toepfer and his colleagues had 219 students with an average age of 25 ll out questionnaires to gauge their well-being, returning to the lab to ll out the survey three more times, with each visit about a week apart. Some of the students wrote a letter of gratitude each time they returned to the lab, while the control group didn’t write about being thankful. “The letter writers were instructed to write a letter of gratitude to anyone they wanted, however, the letter couldn’t be trivial and it couldn’t be a ‘thank you’ note for a gift or ‘thanks for saying hello to me this morning,’” Toepfer said. “The participants had to write about something that was important to them.” The results showed that the subjects’ levels of happiness and life satisfaction improved after each letter they wrote. In addition, depressive symptoms decreased over time with the letter writing. Similarly, in a study published in 2010, researchers from the University of California, Riverside, and Duke University in Durham, N.C., asked 220 participants ages 20 to 71 years to write letters of gratitude over a 6-week period, while the control group was asked to list their past experiences. The study found that participants who wrote letters of gratitude demonstrated larger increases in life satisfaction than the subjects in the control group. Counting your blessings doesn’t just cheer you up — it can improve your health and energy levels as well. A 2007 study conducted by researchers at the University of California, Davis, and the Mississippi University for Women found that organ-transplant recipients who kept “gratitude journals” listing ve things or people that they were grateful for each day scored better on measures of general health, mental health and vitality than those who onl y made routine notes about their days. The study was presented at an annual meeting of the American Psychological Association. “We found that increased feelings o f gratitude can cause people’s well-being and quality of life to improve,” study researcher Robert Emmons, a professor who specializes in the study of gratitude at UC Davis, said in a statement. “We are all walking around with an amazing resource: gratitude,” said Toepfer, author of the Kent State University study. “It helps us express and enjoy, appreciate, be thankful and satis ed with a little effort. We all have it, and we need to use it to improve our quality of life.” So, you can be a grouch, or you can be grateful. It’s your call!Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. W hy should you be thankful? Glad you asked Les Morgan Shop localI found this article (Shopping Treasures in LaBelle) to be totally useless. The author, Janice Groves, encourages us to shop local yet doesn’t mention where to nd these “treasures.” Maybe because mentioning the merchants would be considered free advertising? By not saying where she found these items, what good did it do to even write about it and on the front page no less? If the paper did say where she found these items and the merchants noticed that public did respond, they might be moved to actually put a display ad in your paper once in a while. Since I haven’t a clue what businesses she’s referring to....I’m doing my shopping on Amazon. Gayle Wilkins LaBelle I’m sorry you see it that way, but the series is not intended to get someone to start at home, jump in the car, head for a speci c store, pick up a speci c item and head back home again. The idea is to energize enthusiasm for all local retailers by pointing out things available in LaBelle that people might feel they had to go elsewhere to purchase. We want them to get out and poke around a little, nd things for themselves, explore what’s right in their backyard rather than simply snatch up speci c gifts in a frenzy. Okay, we know everyone’s time is limited, but not having to drive to Fort Myers or elsewhere will save lots of time and gas money that can be spent on more gifts or even given to charity. You could even do it on your lunch hour. Lots of folks are shopping on line too, but many of us spend a good chunk of our day on the computer. Who wants to go back online to look for gifts when you could drive a few blocks, maybe meet a friend or neighbor, spend a few minutes actually speaking to other human beings and discover what’s right here in your own community?

Filled w ith 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. The Study will be at Our Lady Queen of Heaven, 355 South Bridge Street LaBelle.Church and StateThe intersection where church and state meet in the United States is a busy juncture, with a long and fascinating history.

Homecoming Week 2013 at LaBelle High School was once again a very enjoyable experience. This annual event began on Nov ember 4 and concluded on November 9. There was a lot of school spirit on display, and students seemed to enjoy all of the activities. Each day of the week had a different them and students dressed up to t that theme. Monday was Blast from the Past Day with J ulian Jaramillo, Magali Salinas, Branagin Ragoonanon and Joland Hull voted best dressed. Tuesday was Sports Day with Andres Garza and Suzi Cruz being judged best dressed. Rachael Reinbolt, Logan White and Briana Dobbins were best dressed on W ednesday, Character Day. Thursday was Opposite Day and best dressed were Jolan Hull, Branagin Ragoonanon and Paulina Magana. Best dressed for Friday's Spirit Day were Paul Luckey, Elijah Luckey, Matthew Reyna and Shelba Kelley. During each day of Homecoming Week, there were trivia contests. Several teachers challenged students to guess answers to questions and earn points for their respective classes. The school-wide contest was "Who's Your Mummy," where students guessed the faculty members face behind the mummy mask. On Wednesday night, the girls took the eld for the annual PowderPuff competition. In the rst game, the Freshmen shut down the Sophomores 186. In the second game, the Juniors ousted the Seniors 15-12. In the championship game, the defenses prevented any touchdowns, but the Juniors won on a rare eld goal 3-0 to take the 2013 LHS PowderPuff championship. For the second time ever, the women staff members at LaBelle High School challenged the PowderPuff champion to a game. This was a very close battle with the faculty dominating the time of play and scoring a touchdown that was later reversed. The game ended in a tie 00. During the day on Thursday, the Boys VolleyBall games took place. In the rst set of games, the Seniors crushed the Juniors. In the second set of games, the Sophomores beat the Freshmen. Then the Sophomores called out the Seniors and a winner take all game was played. In spite of their enthusiasm, the Sophomores were no match for the Seniors. The Seniors easily cruised to victory and earned the title as the 2012 Boys Volley Ball champion. At 4 p.m. on Friday, the annual Homecoming Parade took place. This great traditional parade travels down Main Street from the U-Save parking lot to Barron Park. Each of the four classes at LHS created their own oats for the parade with the Junior Class being judged the best and the Senior class entry coming in second. When all the points were calculated for the coveted Spirit Trophy, it was the Senior class that won on a last minute surge over the other classes, winning the Spirit Trophy by a mere 40 points. They beat the Juniors 1800 to 1760. On Saturday night the annual Homecoming Dance was held and our theme this year was "A Night on the Nile." Members of Student Government transformed the cafeteria back in time to ancient Egypt. A local family generously loaned the school many nice Egyptian items to add to the mood. Students enjoyed music, food, and drinks until midnight. The faculty, staff, and students of LaBelle High School want to thank all of the wonderful people who helped make Homecoming 2013 such a success. We want to especially thank Mr. Pat Langford for his generous loan of 9 great Langford Ford vehicles which transported the 2013 Homecoming Court members in the parade and the King and Queen at halftime. Thanks also to the LaBelle Volunteer Fire Department, the City of LaBelle, and the Hendry County Sheriff's for their assistance. Our nal thank yous go out to the great people who helped with the tailgate party before the Homecoming Football game. We really appreciate the efforts of LaBelle Dodge, Kiwanis, Hendry County Health Department, Drug Free Coalition, Jeffrey Burton, Mary "The Clown" and the LaBelle Rotary Club.

Ms. Evelyn Foss has been at Oakbrook Nursing Home for just three of her 106 years, but it’s home now. Last Thursday, November 14, her daughter Royene Hankins, and granddaughter Toni McDaniel of Illinois, gathered with residents and staff to celebrate the milestone. Ms. Foss was born in Iowa and began life on a farm. Just a baby at the time, she doesn’t actually remember the family’s rst automobile, which replaced the horse and buggy, but family lore has kept the event fresh for her. Living through wars, the horrendous inuenza pandemic of 1918 (which she herself contracted but survived), the Great Depression and over ten decades of life, Ms. Foss was alert and excited about the day, complete with cards, a cake, a hand painted likeness of her from a friend and a special puppy visit. She raised two children and was still living on her own at age 97 on the Suwannee River. She has ve grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren with three more on the way.
