The special meeting began at 6:30 p.m. Hearing vehement arguments against the plan, the county commission gave up the idea of assessing LaBelle businesses to help fund the project, but left open the possibility of nding private means to accomplish the goal. The proposed golf course would be situated on one section of the Sports Complex north of the ball elds currently being constructed on Forrey Road. LaBelle's Director of Finance Ron Zimmerly took the initiative at the meeting, explaining that several business owners originally brought the idea forward to assess commercial properties for a golf course. The thinking was that the businesses would bene t from additional traf c and customers generated by the course. According to Mr. Zimmerly, these businessmen attributed the by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The LaBelle City Commission unanimously set the tentative 201314 tentative tax millage at 3.1046. The board had allowed for the option of an additional .5 mills but decided to hold the line at 3.1046 since that is the gure at which the budget was balanced. The city's 2013-14 budget is approximately $20 million, including $4.3 million from the general fund plus $15.4 million in Enterprise funding. The total also re ects some $533,000 in ad valorem taxes. The nal public hearing to set the millage rate will be Thursday, September 26, beginning at 5 p.m. in the commissioners' room at Cit y Hall. At that time, the board can apCity sets tentative millage The Caloosa Belle has launched a new and expanded online business directory at its community website to serve businesses and consumers in LaBelle and surrounding areas.

loss of considerable business in recent years to the closing of the old Oxbow Golf Course on SR 80 and the city felt a course would be good for business and economic growth. The city’s position, he said, was further strenghthened by the fact that the site was considered a prime location by several golf organizations. The $5.3 million cost of the course included a country club. An additional $1.3 million would complete the rest of the entire Sports Complex, including ball elds. The plan was to increase the recreation assessment on city businesses from $75 to $100 with the extra $25 going to the sports park. At the September 10 Hendry County Commission meeting, that board approved the $100 recreation assessment, but not to be used for the golf course. Opponents of the golf course attended that meeting as w ell and were very vocal about their feelings. City Attorney Angela Hill explained that no action could be taken at the city meeting September 12 it was an opportunity for discussion only. She added that the plan w ould not be feasible without county approval anyway. Trying to counter feelings that the golf course would be pushed ahead of the ballelds, Mayor Dave Lyons told the packed hall that the ball eld will be done “no matter what.” Speakers Former county commimssioner Bill Maddox took the podium to say that when he was on that county board, they did due diligence on a golf course years ago, and found that public courses could not stand on their own. Resident John Oldford quoted statistics from the National Golf Foundation which showed that a successful golf course requires some 4,000 golfers to live within a ten-mile radius of a course and termed the idea that this project could be successful, “ludicrous.” Resident Dean Tanner spoke brie y in favor of the project, which he said the city needed to “grow good young people.” Tina Noel provided a map showing 130 golf courses in Southwest Florida. She quoted statistics she researched that 60 percent of public courses have lowered their maintenance standards. She said that there is no clear feasibility study showing such a course would be successful and added that the city needs other things more. For his part, LaBelle businessman Glen Scho eld proposed a zipline, saying it would add 20 jobs and make LaBelle a destination, as well as being affordable. Craig Bartoshuk recalled work on the passive recreation park across the river and recommended other possibilities to bring in economic growth, such as a butter y farm or horse trails. Businessman Steve Nisbet pointed out a discrepancy in the proposal to tax businesses by parcel. His business is located on four parcels, he said. As written, he would have to pay the recreation tax on each individual parcel, for just one business. Commissioner Daniel Akin didn’t take this lightly, telling the audience that his idea was to draw in economic activity. Realtor Sheri Denning noted that many good good points were raised, in particular the need for a passive rec park and possibly a zipline. Resident Chris Zimmerly also spoke for the plan, saying the city also lacks adult recreation. At the end of the meeting, Mayor Lyons noted that the board would continue investigating ways to make a golf course a reality, noting that city has the property and water system on site to attract a plausible private golf business. “This can be our economic driver,” he said. “If we cannot to it by special assessment we can nd some other way.” VETERANSHendry County has cancelled their contract with the LaBelle Chapter 144 DAV to transport veterans to their medical appointments.

The board may also set the capitol improvement schedule and other public hearing items.In other business:Acting as the Local Planning Agency (LPA), the board listened to rst readings of resolutions approving a voluntary annexation of GreenTree into the city. Other resolutions will allow for a large scale comp plan designation and rezoning of the multi-family RG-4 in the county to comparable city zoning. The Area Housing Commission of Clewiston, LaBelle and Hendry, which owns the property, currently operates workforce housing on one parcel and plans to put senior housing on a second parcel. The LPA recommended approval and, at the regular commission meeting the board approved the resolutions to be transferred to the state for review. The board will take up the questions again after hearing any comments from the state. Sitting as the LPA, the board also approved a request to amend the Master Concept Plan for four acres located on SR 80 about a quarter mile east of Huggetts Road, allowing a Planned Unit Development on the property. The location is the site of a proposed tractor supply. The board also signed off on a bond for new waterplant for the $13 million loan, closing that portion of funding. Now the cit y can move on to use $7 million in grant funding to complete construction. Tim Taylor of Applied Technology Management (ATM) reported that the main contractor for the plant is on schedule. A lien has been led against the Trading Post for some $20,000 for not complying with the city’s requests to address code violations. The board approved the use of gol f carts on city roads.

To revise a listing, a business must rst “claim” their listing by following the simple steps outlined at the site, or by calling 863-763-3134 ext. 4234. For those businesses that don’t currently have an online presence or web site, BizSearch can act as a company website and provide customized pages, blogs and connection to social media. Tom Byrd, president of Independent Newsmedia Inc. USA in Florida and Caloosa Belle publisher, said BizSearch is not your typical online business directory. The key advantage to BizSearch: Its crucial connection to the company’s news products and community newspapers: “Newspaper websites are typically among the most heavily visited sites in their area because of the strong local news generally only available at that site. That means your listing on our website w ill bene t from the traf c we naturally attract, and a listing in the directory will improve search engine results (SEO) for your business to show up in search engine results,” said Mr. Byrd. In addition, BizSearch will be heavily promoted in the Caloosa Belle’s well-read print newspapers and our increasingly popular social media presence. “Our print and online products combine to create a powerful one-two punch that provides businesses the opportunity to make a powerful impact at an affordable price,” added Mr. Byrd. All BizSearch listings are connected to the company’s online classi eds, allowing a business to link to its classi ed advertisement or brand its classi ed ads with a company logo or contact information. In addition, all BizSearch listings are optimized to run on smartphones and mobile devices. All listings provide consumers with speci c directions to a business. Mr. Byrd said the BizSearch directories provide a valuable enhancement to orida. newszap.com, the entry point to our community websites. In addition to local news, calendars and classi eds, consumers now have easy access to in-depth information about their local businesses. “People crave local news, plain and simple. Of all the thousands of websites out there, studies continue to show that local news sites remain the most popular – and most visited,” said Mr. Byrd. “We’ve been providing important community news and information to LaBelle area residents for many years, and our online community sites allow us to continue and expand that mission.” For additional information, contact a customer service representative at 863-763 3134 or emailing bizsearch@newszap.com

The health department received a comment on Facebook from a woman who said the U.S. Federal Government Grants Department called and claimed she needed to pay more than $600 in order to receive federal bene ts totaling $8,000. She paid the money, never got the $8,000 and asked us how to get a refund of her money. The phone call was a scam. The Federal Government Grants Department doesn't exist. More importantly, the government will never call or text you to ask for money. Even though the woman wrote down the phone number of the caller, it can be hard to trace it back to a real person because of tricks like caller ID spoo ng. This means that she probably won't be able to get her money back. Be suspicious of any call, text, or e-mail that claims to be from the government. Scammers often use names that sound like real government agencies but aren't. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, has more tips on spotting fake callers who pretend to be the government. You can nd the of cial names and contact information for federal government agencies in our A-Z Index of U.S. Government Departments and Agencies. Don't hesitate to contact the agency that claims you owe them money. Be sure to use the contact information listed in the A-Z Index and not the contact information the caller or e-mail provides. If you do get scammed, then you should le a complaint with the FTC and your state's consumer agency.

This Sunday, December 22, Caloosa Baptist will be holding its morning service at the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds on Highway 29. The congregation will be sharing the facilities with the Cowboy Church that meets there each week led by Mike McDowell. This is an annual event designed to remind people of the setting where Christ was born when He came to the earth so long ago. “We started this in 2007,” said Dr. Les Morgan, pastor of Caloosa Baptist. “Having been a pastor for more than 30 years, I always wanted to do something unusual to help people engage in what it must have been like when the King of Glory entered our world. That was an awesome price to pay, and it was met with the heart of love that only God could give.” At the “Getting Back to the Barn” service people come out of the traditional Sunday morning setting and enter a completely different venue from a normal worship experience. Not only are there people who usually attend church at this unique service, but there are many who rarely, if ever, visit a church, as well. The dress code is simple – whatever one would wear to clean a barn. Morgan will have on his blue jeans, cowboy hat, boots and a pearl-button shirt. This year Sheriff Whidden “and His Posse” will be performing during the service. The Sheriff is well-known of his guitar strumming country-style playing and singing. Others from the two churches will be singing and playing as well. Those who have attended previous “Getting Back to the Barn” services all seem to have a similar response. One worshipper said, “It is something I had always heard – that Jesus was born in a stable. However, when I think that God’s Hol y Son came and was delivered among the cows, donkey, sheep and other critters, and that He did that for me, I am deepl y humbled.” Jim, a volunteer worker at the church, spoke of how the first “Getting Back to the Barn” service impacted him. “For me, it helped me understand the love of God even more. When I think that He sent His Son to earth and that He was given birth in a filthy animal stall, it reall y moved me. Jesus did that for me. That was powerful, meaningful, experience.” A mother of three children commented on her feelings after attending a “Getting Back to the Barn.” Her reaction was, “My children were born at Health Park in Ft. Myers. Medical teams were on standby in case there were any problems. My physician had been to medical school and was an experienced obstetrician. “The room was sterile, and the attending staff was prepared. It was just the opposite for Mary. She was alone. Joseph may have seen calves being birthed, but he had no knowledge of delivering babies. How awesome is that?” The public is invited to attend the “Getting Back to the Barn” service this Sunda y at 10:30 at the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds. The service will be about an hour long and will be held in the animal holding section. Please bring a folding chair. Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80.

Sheriff Steve Whidden And the men and women of the Hendry County Sheriffs Ofce Wish you a very Merry Christmas 8 Caloosa Belle December 19, 2013 Pioneer Plantation youngsters in attorney Mary Cosmo’s 4-H Club are learning about the courtroom process through mock trails. They role play as attorneys, witnesses, judges and the jury. They learn about public speaking, persuasive communication, respect of different opinions and self responsibility. The club meets weekly at the Pioneer Community Center. The 4-H Advocacy Club is open to 4-H juniors 8-10 years old, 4-H intermediate 11-13 years old, and 4-H seniors 14-18 years old for mock trial practice. Parents are encouraged to participate as jurors and witnesses. Last year they had a mock trial with Judge Sloan at the LaBelle Courthouse, in which the kids participated in State v Deville. 4-H’er J oseph Rourks was an outstanding prosecutor, who hit a home run with his strong closing statement. Zeida Rabelo as Defense Counsel put on a great defense for the defendant, the infamous Cruella Deville (played by Samantha Bunting), who was charged with one count of puppy napping. In the end, the star witness (played by Maggie Gacula) testied with telling evidence, which resulted in a jury verdict of guilty. Cruella Devilla was then sentenced to 30 months of jail and 30 months of probation. Mrs. Cruella Deville was then escorted out of the courtroom in handcuffs and shackles into the holding cell where she still awaits transport. This year the kids are learning to draft their own oral arguments to be argued in our next mock trial. For Ms. Cosmo, personally, it is about being a role model to the youth in our rural area and showing them they really can be anything they want as long as they are willing to work for it. She said she also wants to show them that our small town is not limited in opportunities but limitless in ways to create opportunities. She added that she will always remember the project, friends and lessons she learned from her own 4-H expeience with great role models when she was growing up. 4-H’ers learn life lessons at mock trial Submitted photo/ Mary CosmoPictured from left: Judge Sloan with Joseph Rourks as State Attorney; Samantha Bunting as Cruella Deville; Maggie Gacula as our Star Witness; Zeida C Rabelo as the Defense Counsel; Mary Cosmo 4-H Leader; and Mrs. Rabelo as the Jury Forman.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida leads the nation with more than 17 percent of its population age 65 years and older, and that number is expected to continue to grow. Access to transportation is important to older Floridians who cherish their independence. It is tting that Florida observes Older Driver Safety Awareness Week to help ensure seniors can continue to enjoy their freedom while doing so in a safe manner. FLHSMV offers these tips to assist older drivers:  Plan your day so that you do most of your driving when visibility is greatest and traf c is lightest, such as mid-morning and after lunch.  Plan the route to your destination to minimize left turns.  Look twice both ways before making a turn or entering an intersection.  Minimize lane changes. When you change lanes, be sure to use your signals.  Turn the volume on your radio down or turn off the radio completely.  Have your vision and hearing tested annually.  Heed warning labels on medications. Even prescription drugs can impair driving and judgment.  Consider alternative transportation options. For more information and additional resources to help older drivers remain mobile and independent, visit the Safe Mobility for Life Coalition’s website at www.safeandmobileseniors.org. FLHSMV is an active member of the coalition. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement.

(Photo by Glen Stacell) Thanks to the new Full Moon Ghost Rider Tram Tours, park visitors can now see the magni cent Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park in a new light--the illumination of a full moon. The new “Ghost Rider” tram, named in honor of the famous Ghost Orchid found in the park, is operated by the Friends of Fakahatchee. The Fakahatchee is home to more orchid species than any other place on the North American continent. The Preserve is also a haven for diverse wildlife and migratory birds. Only three Full Moon tours will be offered this season: Thursday, January 16; Friday, February 14; and Saturday, March 15. All tours start as the sun is setting, prime time for spotting some of the mammal residents of the Strand as well as birds settling in for the evening. A naturalist will lead each tour to point out interesting features of the park. “The 24-passenger tram is high and dry and will provide an excellent platform for v iewing park features illuminated by the full moon,” says naturalist Glen Stacell. “Citydwellers will be amazed at how their vision changes as their eyes adapt to the moonlight.” The tram is wheelchair accessible and some seats face backwards. The Full Moon tours leave from the ranger station at 137 Coastline Drive, Copeland, off Janes Scenic Drive. Please arrive early as the tram leaves promptly according to the following schedule: Thursday, January 16 – Depart at 4:45 p.m., return 7:00 p.m. Friday, February 14 – Depart at 5:00 p.m., return 7:15 p.m. Saturday, March 15 – Depart at 6:00 p.m., return 8:15 p.m. Reservations for the Full Moon tours are $25 per person and can be made by visiting www.orchidswamp.org Public NoticeHENDRY COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE SUBMITTED BY: C.

Faith, Hope and Love Many things in life are often surpassed because they are dressed in overalls and appears to be hard work.” Those are the truest words spoken from Thomas Edison and highly applicable in my life. As of Friday, December 13, 2013, I will be a graduate of The Florida State University and continuing my education at Georgetown University in the Fall of 2014. Prior to graduate school I will be traveling abroad to London as an International Program student interning with the City of London Contingency Planning Corporation. The many recognizable transitions that I will be experiencing are due in great part to those who clothed themselves in the assiduous garment of hard work to ensure that I had a loving and stable environment. In 1990, as a premature asthmatic newborn within the Children and Families Hendry–Glades County Foster Care Division, I and my two brothers needed a home. Thankfully many angels were available to harken their hearts on Christ’s children. The Rosario Family of LaBelle and the loving home of Maxine Evelyn Gilkes is where we were nurtured. These two loving families had ample support throughout the community and I am very grateful for the health care provided by Dr. Valiant. The necessity of having a village to raise a child was proven in our case and I would additionally like to thank the late Mozetta Bell, Joyce Perkins Jones and Charlie Ford. Even today, I appreciate the reminiscent moments with Mrs. Diane Croskey, Gloria Reese and Pastor and Mrs. Bell about the details of my adolescence. My con dence, stability and excitement for the future would not be possible without the community at large, I humbly thank you. As a change agent in society I will be attaining my Master’s Degree in Urban Planning with a future career goal of working with the National Olympics to combat gentri cation issues (the buying and renovation of houses and stores in deteriorated urban neighborhoods by upperor middle-income families or individuals, thus improving property values but often displacing low-income families and small businesses pre and post-Olympic Development. Summers experienced with Daniel Fry of the Seminole Tribe of Florida gave me a great glimpse of integral community development experiences which aid in my advancement. All in all, I am humbled and lled with gratitude for the heart of others that were willing to make sacri ces to ensure I had ample opportunities for success; I hope that I am making everyone proud.
