by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Many residents are very wary of the plan to put a drug rehab facility in the Port LaBelle Inn facility. Some 96 residents jammed a January 6 meeting at the inn, at the request of St. Matthews House, the organization proposing to purchase the property and install its program there. Although the meeting was “mostly cordial,” residents were quite vocal about their objections. Jack Zorn, President of Birchw ood Parkway Community, Inc., a non pro t group representing the condos, villas, Ranchettes, Oak Manor and Laurel Oaks, reported that St. Matthews House representative said they have “no de nite plans” for the property. The group would need a special exception from Hendry County to make the voluntary rehab program happen. The county commissioners of Glades County have already gone on record as opposing such a program there. The Port LaBelle Inn property abuts Glades County. Explaining the voluntary rehab program, they said it is set up for 60 men in one year programs. The men would cook and clean for themselves. If the program is implemented at the inn, the bar would be closed. Although they may keep the restaurant open for the public and may open a thrift shop and small farm. Mr. Zorn said he feels the organization’s request for a special exception is inconsistent with Hendry County’s current land use plan. Economics is a big part of residents’ objections, since a program like St. Matthew’s House would be tax exempt. According to Mr. Zorn, St. Matthews House Board of Directors Chairman Joe Trachtenberg said he was unable to answer questions about the tax base, tax exemption and thrift store. However, St. Matthews House has always been a nonpro t organization. Mr. Trachtenberg said Port LaBelle Inn’s owners approached St. Matthews House with the offer. According to Mr. Zorn, Mr. Trachtenberg also said the facility will be closed if St. Matthews House doesn’t buy it. He warned the windows would be boarded up and the facility would be come a target for vandals a prediction most in the audience took exception to. Mr. Zorn said that. at one point in the meeting, a show of hands revealed only one participant in favor of the plan, all others were opposed. Mr. Zorn said he fears losing that site as business property would destroy the anchor of future development in the area and felt that the inn’s condition has been misrepresented. He said all rooms have been recently renovated, along with the kitchen and conference room. At the time of the meeting, he said 38 of its 42 rooms were booked. Mr. Zorn also felt that he’s seen a lot more interest in the property in the last six months. He added that he’s not opposed to the homeless and drug DRIVE A NEW 2014 FUSION SE FOR ONLY $199 PER MONTH*36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2529 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

Al Tagliente, as Dean Martin, got a standing novation to his renditions of Memories Are Made of This, Volare and Return To Me. David Morrow, as himself, came on stage (dressed in his original military uniform) and told the story af how he met Dean Martin while stationed overseas. Special guest speaker Carl Sharp talked about the USO and the branches of the military and ended with a joke that everyone related to. No show would be complete without the voice of “Zim” Bob Way as he sang God Bless America. The post hopes to be able to make this an annual event.

He was previously involved with the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council (SWFRPC), which saw the Port LaBelle Inn as an anchor hub for tourism for Southw est Florida. He said that in 2006 the Birchwood Parkw ay Community, Inc., non pro t group stopped the plan to change the property to mixed density zoning, which he said would have ruined it. The exemption to allow religious and institutional uses within the General Agriculture (A-2) and High Intensity Commercial (C-3) zoning districts was to be considered by the Local Planning Agency (LPA) at its J anuary 15 meeting. Its recommendation is expected to be taken up for a decision at the Hendry County Commission’s January 28 meeting at 5 p.m. in the Courthouse.

Miller Fund is pleased to announce that once again they will be partnering with Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. for Trailways Camp. The camp, which was launched in October of 2012 to address the social isolation experienced by adults with special needs and their caregivers in Southwest Florida, will be held February 17-20 at Riverside Retreat Center in LaBelle. “Trailways Camp is a unique retreat for adults with disabilities,” says Jesi Cason, Trailways Camp Director. “It’s an adventure for people who want to get out into nature, try shing, do arts and crafts and make lifelong friends.” Many adults with disabilities live with aging family members or caregivers and have few social or recreational opportunities that provide relief or respite for their caregivers. Trailways Camp removes barriers to social isolation by giving participants a chance to experience quality social recreational activities in a safe environment while giving respite to the families and caregivers. “A structured schedule of activities supervised by quali ed staff and volunteers makes this camping experience unforgettable,” says Cason. “Each camper is assigned to a team which is led by a counselor throughout the retreat.” For more information regarding the Trailways camp, camper application, or volunteer opportunities contact Cason, at (239)995-2106 ext. 2312 or JesiCason@ goodwillsw .org About The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund Sharon and Jerry Miller started a Donor Advised Fund in Central Texas after their son Robert passed away in late 2005 from complications stemming from a rare neonatal disorder. Robert and his brother Ben both enjoyed camp experiences as children and young adults in Michigan. More and more the Miller’s observed the social isolation and barriers to relationships that developed as children with special needs passed through school experiences, became adults and their families aged. The Millers reside in West Rocks in Sanibel. They have funded and led development of camps for adults with special needs since 2007. In 2011 they established The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund at the SW Florida Community Foundation, and created an Advisory Group that has led local design and development of Trailways Camps.

The Florida Department of Health is raising awareness about the important steps families can take to improve the health of babies and decrease the impact of birth defects. January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month and the Department is encouraging women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy to take steps to have a healthy pregnancy. “With birth defects impacting one in every 28 babies born in Florida, it is important that families are aware of this serious matter,” said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Ofcer for Children’s Medical Services (CMS). “The Department works hand-in-hand with health care providers, families and researchers to improve disease detection and ensure care.” Birth defects are caused by genetic and environmental factors, or a combination of both. The majority of birth defects do not have a known cause. If you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, the Department recommends that you:  Go for a pre-pregnancy checkup and talk with your health care provider about any medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity or seizures.  Women of child bearing age should take a vitamin with 400 micrograms of folic acid daily.  Eat a healthy balanced diet; maintain a healthy weight and exercise.  Avoid cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs.  Avoid exposure to hazardous chemicals.  Check with a health care provider before taking any medications, including overthe-counter medications.  Talk to your health care provider about vaccinations; many are safe and recommended during pregnancy. The right vaccinations at the right time can help keep you and your baby healthy.  Seek prenatal care as soon as you think you may be pregnant.  Discuss your family medical history with your health care provider and seek advice from a genetic counselor if there is a history of birth defects in your family. The Florida Birth Defects Registry (FBDR) is a statewide population-based surveillance system that identi es children born with birth defects with the goal of determining risk factors, identifying clusters and promoting collaboration to prevent birth defects and reduce associated morbidity and mortality. For more information about the prevention of birth defects in Florida, please visit www. fbdr.org. The Department also partners with the National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) and the 2014 NBDPN Birth Defects Prevention information packet is available online at: http://www.nbdpn.org / bdpm2014.php.

Norovirus is highly contagious and may cause vomiting and diarrhea and stomach cramps. Anyone can be infected and get sick with noroviruses. Symptoms usually start within 24 to 48 hours and most people begin to feel better within one or two days and have no long-term health effects. NOTE--People with Norovirus illness are contagious from the moment they begin feeling sick until at least 3 days after they recover. But, some people may be contagious for even longer. There is no vaccine to prevent Norovirus infection and there is no drug to treat people who get sick from the virus. Antibiotics will not help if you have Norovirus illness. This is because antibiotics ght against bacteria, not viruses. Norovirus can spread quickly from person to person in crowded, closed places. People can become infected with the virus in several ways including:  Touching surfaces or objects contaminated with the virus, and then placing their hands in their mouth.  Eating food or drinking liquids that have been contaminated with the virus (usually from the food handler not washing their hands properly)  Eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated with Norovirus (someone gets stool or vomit on their hands, and then touches food or drink).  Having direct contact with another person who is infected and showing symptoms (caring for someone who is infected, sharing food or eating utensils with someone who is infected) The best way to reduce your chance of getting Norovirus is by following some simple tips:  Wash hands frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, before eating and prior to preparing food.  Carefully wash fruits and vegetables, and cook foods completely before eating them.  Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness by using bleach-based household cleaners.  Immediately remove and wash clothing or linens that may be contaminated with the virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap).  Flush or discard any vomit and/or stool in the toilet and clean the surrounding area. People who have symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea should not prepare or handle food until they are completely free of symptoms and for at least three days after all symptoms are gone. Any foods that may have been contaminated by an ill person should be thrown away. For additional information, you can visit http://www.cdc. gov/Features/Norovirus/ or talk with your healthcare provider. What is Norovirus?

The Cowboys placed 3 players in double gures scoring with Grant Gillman netting 17, Alfredo Mar 12 and Michael Lopez 10. Jordan Lopez led in rebounding with 6. Danny Keller injured his ankle in the second quarter and did not return, so not having the second leading scorer for this tight game was a factor. The two wins were against Lake Placid, 57-43, and Clewiston, 49-45. Alfredo Mar led in scoring with 11 against Lake Placid with four others scoring at least 7 points. Rebounding was led by Mark Sloan with 7. The Clewiston box score was not available as of this writing.

His work focuses on information to increase the ef ciency and pro tability of the citrus industry while helping farmers adjust to environmental concerns. At UF, he provides overall leadership and coordination for the development and implementation of citrus programs by conducting expanded educational programs for commercial citrus producers and providing technical expertise, support, and cooperation for growers. Internationally, he has focused much of his work on assisting citrus farmers in Egypt, Tunisia, and Saudi Arabia. In these countries, he has trained over 500 farmers in a comprehensive range of citrus topics, including the selection of citrus rootstock that is more tolerant of the biotic and abiotic constraints to fruit production, best management practices including new irrigation and fertilization technologies, and the use of more effective strategies for controlling weeds, insect pests, and diseases. Replacement of old low-yielding groves with healthy nursery trees from certi ed disease free budwood is important to improve fruit yield and fruit quality in these countries. The participants in Dr. Zekri's training programs have stated that the y would change or improve their management practices because of the information gained from his educational programs.
