The daycare is looking to move from its present location at SR 80 and MLK Blvd. to 88 South Main Street, just across from the Courthouse. The facility, owned by Child Care of Southwest Florida, currently has 49 students ages 1-8. The owner has purchased the building at 90 Main Street, the old probation of ce, to provide of ce space for approximately six businesses. The resolution to allow the daycare at the Main Street site came up at the city's February meeting, but a vote was never nalized. A t that time City Planner Shelly Johnson explained that the property is 1.25 acres and includes a vacant 3,200 square foot commercial building. Access is available from both Main and Hall Streets. Ms. Johnson recommended several conditions for approval of the resolution including internal and site improvements: ingress and egress from Hall Street; striping added for the parking lot; fencing speci c areas including drop-off and pick-up areas and the play area. She said the property would provide adequate stacking for traf c dropping off and picking up children during the facility's hours of operation, 6:30 a.m. till 5:30 p.m. Right turns only would be permitted from the property onto Main Street, similar to McDonalds just north of it, which would be the only exit, with the entrance from Hall Street. Staff also said the plan would t the criteria in the city's land development code. Don Davis, owner of Don's Steak House on Hall Street as well as the old Long Branch, both of which abut the property concerned, expressed concern for the children's safety. He cited big trucks making deliveries to both his restaurant and Burger King. He also noted that the Long Branch property is still zoned for a bar. Resident Julie Wilkins also expressed concerns about traf c in the vicinity. Chris Hernandez, spokesman for property owner, noted that the daycare is currently located in a high traf c area at Martin Luther King Blvd. and SR 80. He felt the site plan for the move was a good one with room for parents to maneuver their vehicles. Representatives of the Children's Garden said they had many of the same issues, but were convinced they would not present problems. She said fencing would be adequate for safety and that the old bar would not be a problem since they do not face the same direction and there are no windows in the building. She added that fencing could be enhanced if any problems arose. The city commission meets tonight at 7 p.m. at city hall.

3 Caloosa Belle March 13, 2014 FORT MYERS, Fla. (March 4, 2014)---The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program has already prepared 853 federal tax returns resulting in over $1.9 million coming back to our community. The ling season continues until April 15. VITA is a free tax ling service available to individuals and families making $57,000 or less. A partnership among United Way 211, the IRS, and United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee makes the free service available at United Way Neighborhood Houses and other locations in Lee, Hendry, Charlotte and Collier Counties. This year the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee is proud to partner with United Way of Charlotte County and United Way of Collier County, and has added four new tax preparation locations. There are a total of 12 locations. The new locations are in Bonita Springs, Immokalee, Naples and Port Charlotte. Volunteers at United Way Houses and other locations have prepared thousands o f tax returns for area residents in the last ve years. Volunteer tax preparers come from man y walks of life and include college students, retired accountants and others who all receive training and certi cation from the IRS. Their service to the community helps people o f low to middle income le their taxes free, and with the speedy e- le returns. Households making less than $57,000 can have their taxes done for free at one o f our 12 locations. The United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, and Okeechobee raises funds for human service organizations in our community, and promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies, focusing on issues and solutions to improve lives. For more information please call United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades at (239) 4332000 or visit www.unitedwaylee.org. Expanded income tax program "I realize that people would like to cross the street to go back and forth to see the various vendors along Bridge Street during the Swamp Cabbage Festival. But, once it is opened to traf c, I have a duty to protect, not only the pedestrian traf c, but the motoring traf c, as well. The only safe way to do that is to direct people to use the crosswalk at Ft. Thompson Avenue or walk under the bridge. If traf c is stopped on the bridge, it creates a dangerous situation for traf c crossing it, especially when they may already be distracted by the festival. "As for taking at least one away in handcuffs; actually there were two. These Lehigh Acres residents had already drawn attention by being belligerent as they entered the festival and didn't want to use the sidewalk to get out of traf c. On their way out, one decided to walk in the traf c lane again. When requested to get on the sidewalk, he challenged my deputy and cursed him aloud with ladies and children nearby. He was arrested for Disorderly Intoxication. One of his acquaintances decided to interfere and displayed a similar, limited vocabulary. He was arrested and charged with Disorderly Intoxication, as well. Both earned additional charges of Obstruction of Justice." The folks clapping on the sidewalk didn't appreciate their behavior at our family event either. "I had a deputy stationed at the crosswalk on Ft. Thompson Avenue to help these people cross the street' so everyone could have a safe and festive day. None of us want to see someone hurt by stepping into oncoming, probably distracted, traf c. Thankfully, we didn't." Steve Whidden, Sheriff HCSO addresses SCF safety Information on a March 2 Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce form was apparently incorrect, causing the wrong man to be identi ed in a Caloosa Belle arrest report in the March 6 issue. Robert Kevin Robbins Sr. 51, was arrested and held in Hendry County Jail, charged with possession of drugs-methamphetamines and possession of drug equipment. The paperwork, and the Caloosa Belle report, incorrectly identi ed him as Robert Kevin Robbins Jr., age 28. We apologize for any inconvenience to the younger Mr. Robbins. Sheriff’s Of ce mixup Montura Hendry County Deputies arrested two men on several charges related to an armed burglary. On Friday, March 7, 2014, Hendry County Deputies responded to a burglary in progress in Montura Ranch Estates. The Sheriff's Of ce was noti ed by a resident of the area who told authorities that his neighbor's home was being burglarized. According to the caller, he saw one of the subject's approach the home armed with a ri e and reported that he heard a shot red, prior to entering the home. As deputies arrived on scene, they observed two subjects leave the home carrying bags, running into a heavily wooded area, dropping some of the property taken from the residence. The property recovered from the scene was later positively identi ed by the resident of the home. The only item not recovered is a 9mm Beretta. Several deputies arrived on scene along w ith Hendry County Canine Units, Clewiston Canine Units and the Lee County Sheriff's Of ce Aviation Unit, to begin a thorough search of the area. A short time later, deputies took into custody both subjects. The rst subject was identi ed as 20 year old Marvin Jaimes of 756 N. Arabeledo Street, and the second subject was 17 year old Adrian Javier Pozo of 701 Siboney Ave., both from Montura Ranch Estates. Deputies located Jaimes at a residence not far from the victim's home. It was reported that Jaimes was standing in the front y ard waiting for someone to pick him up. Poza was discovered by canine units, as he attempted to hide from law enforcement of cers in the thick vegetation not far from the v ictim's home. When Pozo was taken into custody, deputies discovered a large plastic trash bag with six plastic air tight bags that containing a green leafy substance suspected to be marijuana. During the interview Poza admitted that he had taken the marijuana, however at this time law enforcement personnel were unable to determine where the marijuana was taken from. Jaimes was charged with Criminal Mischief, Armed Burglary, Grand Theft, Theft of a Firearm and Resisting Arrest Without Violence, along with three additional outstanding warrants. He was released on March 8, 2014 on $42,500.00 bond. Pozo, a juvenile, was charged with Firing a Weapon into a Residence, Criminal Mischief, Armed Burglary, Grand Theft, Theft of a Firearm, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell, Possession of Marijuana over 20 Grams. Pozo was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice and was sentenced on March 9, 2014, to 21 days con nement in the Department of Juvenile Justice.March 10 home invasionMonday night, March 10, 2014, at approximately 11:30pm, Hendry County deputies responded to the area of Hacienda Street in the Montura Ranch Estates after receiving a call from a resident reporting he had just been robbed. When deputies arrived on scene they spoke with the victim of the robbery who reported that while he was outside his residence three men ran up wearing dark clothing and face masks, pointing guns, and yelling "Police". They forced the victim inside the residence and handcuffed him. During this time the victim reported being struck in the face and was forced to lay face down on the oor. A second victim in the residence was able to run out of the home, but was caught by the subjects and brought back into the residence. The subjects attempted to bind her hands by tying them together with cords found inside the home. The robbers then rummage through the home taking money and jewelry. They later left the home in the victim's vehicle, a 2007 Toyota Corolla which was later recovered. Hendry County Detectives are continuing to follow up on all leads. Anyone with any information is asked to call Hendry County Det. Sgt. C. Bucchofer or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000 Montura home invasions

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. When you face a personal or spiritual attack to your goals and dreams you need to push back! Don’t accept defeat. Don’t let life push you around. You can overcome every enemy you face. David said, “Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame” (Ps 44:5-7). That’s a strong statement for a warrior. Obviously, a soldier in battle is not going to discard his weapons. We, too, need our natural talents and abilities, and do the best we can in life. We need to work hard for success and ght for the things we believe in. However, victory takes more than self-effort in our own abilities. We need to trust the Lord! God doesn’t do everything for us. Don’t accept defeat. Don’t be intimidated. Push back as you ght the good ght of faith, and see the victory the Lord will give you. Two years ago Chickl-A made national headlines when company president Dan Cathy spoke out in support of traditional marriage. Liberals and gays came unglued and launched massive protests against the restaurant. Several mayors spoke out saying they would not allow any more Chickl-As to be built in their cities. They tried boycotting the Christian owned company, but that back red. Instead, Chickl-A had a world record day with many locations selling out of food to supporters. Is it any surprise that the only news the liberal mainstream media has reported concerning Chickl-A has only been the negative? Remember a few weeks ago when the ice storm hit the south? The mainstream media showed footage of miles of cars stranded on the interstates and reported that school kids were trapped on busses for almost 24 hours because of all of the ice. Parents going frantic wondering where their kids were. In all of the icy gloom and doom, chances are good that you didn’t hear about the heroic and generous actions of a Chickl-A along Highway 280 in Birmingham, Alabama. Mark Meadows, owner of the Chickl-A closed early the day of the storm and sent all of his employees home. However, the employees and Meadows soon discovered they were not going to be able to get home with all of the stranded motorists stuck on the roads. The manager described the conditions: “Our store is about a mile and a half from the interstate and it took me two hours to get there. It was a parking lot as far as I could see. More people were walking than driving.” Meadows and his employees reopened the kitchen and prepared several hundred chicken sandwiches and distributed them Highway 280. Some drivers tried to pay them, but Meadows and his employees refused to take a single penny. “This company is based on taking care of people and loving people before you’re worried about money or pro t. We were just trying to follow the model that we’ve all worked under for so long and that we’ve come to love. There was really nothing to do but try to help people any way we could.” Meadows kept the restaurant open overnight so stranded motorists could have a warm place to be. A number of motorists slept in booths or on the benches. The next morning, they prepared chicken biscuits for their overnight guests and once again they refused to accept any payment. This Chickl-A restaurant opened their kitchen, doors and hearts to hundreds of stranded motorists and they did so refusing to accept any payment. As one source put it, Meadows and his staff lived up to the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:35 which states: “For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in…” Their actions were truly generous and heroic. I bet you never heard anything about this from the mainstream media. It was too much against their liberal standards to report a Christian company doing something so positive for so many. We need to support this and all company’s with similar values. And a good place to start would be right in our home town!Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Push Back in the Right Time Response to illegal drugs in Glades CountyA young man who grew up in Moore Hav en said the following: “Glades County is no place for a young man unless he has a good job and a family.” That was a true statement then. Moore Haven was a great place to live and raise a family. That is until now. Illegal activity has always been in the Glades County culture. In the sixties it was alligator poaching and illegal shing. Then marijuana distribution moved in. Now it is the other drug scene, meth, coke, crack, heroin and lately the use and sale of prescription pills. Individuals and families are so dependent on the income from the sale of dope that they threaten and yes even murder to protect their illegal activity. Members of the community will not confront or speak out against the dope dealers because of fear for their life or the safety of their families. Dealing in illegal pills and other forms of dope makes the dealer/supplier a criminal and if arrested and convicted could spend time in prison hopefully being rehabilitated. Murder raises the criminal element to another level. When convicted in Florida, the sentence is life or the death penalty. If you committed the murder, expect the death penalty. If you helped carry it, out expect life. The really sad part of this whole illegal drug scene are those individuals addicted to the drugs willing to pay the criminals for the drugs to feed their habit and at the same time keep the drug business going while destroying their own GOD given life. The really sad part are those family members of both the dealer and addict who suffer the consequences from the arrests, jail time, loss of money, dangerous living conditions and heartache that comes with the absence of the loved one either through incarceration, hospitalization or death by drug abuse, overdose or murder. How can and should the community respond? You can take the “turn our heads the other way it’s not my problem” approach. Y ou can think “let the Sheriff handle it, he w as elected for that purpose. You can move away. “If you don’t like the way we live here move.” You can arm yourselves, our constitutional right, go get our concealed w eapons permit and be prepared for the bad guys or even go after them. You can pray about it and let God take care of it. Or you can be HIS instrument and be proactive with strong education from an early age up at home and by demanding the school district provide it. At the same time you can be alert in your neighborhood and report suspicious and known illegal activity to the local authorities. You can be anonymous by calling CRIMESTOPPERS. If you know anyone connected with the recent murder of Mario Hughes, call CRIMESTOPPERS today. Mario grew up in Moore Haven, is an Iraqi Freedom War Veteran, and was still serving as a military policeman in the United States Army Reserve. He had two sons and a daughter who will never really know their father. He died at the foot of his mother in a pool of blood from a bullet through the heart, shot in the back in his parent’s home. Why was he ambushed and executed? Probably because he had and was helping the local authorities slow down illegal drug traf cking in Glades County. The time to act in Glades County is now or Glades will be like Lee County with 12 unsolved murders, mostly drug and gang related. Call CRIMESTOPPERS today if you know anything related to this tragic event.CRIMESTOPPERS: How It WorksIn the event that a crime, or arson tip, leads to an arrest or conviction, the anonymous caller can be awarded up to $1,000.00 for providing the information. This reward is sent anonymously using Western Union, and received using a code name, and a paired secret question and answer. When calling a tip into our operators, they will provide you with a code to use when checking back on if any arrests or actions were taken as a result. If your tip results in an arrest or conviction, you will be given a code name, and a two part question and answer statement to provide to your local Western Union location. Using the code name and the two part security question/answer, you will be able to receive your reward without providing your name, or showing ID. Call the tip line at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).

PUD on Missouri St.How many more times will the Caloosa Belle, as well as the Hendry-Glades Sunday News, reprint the same story I have read four or ve articles in these two papers the past three weeks and 95 percent are repeat complaints from the rst letter. Narrow roads, bad drainage, no money for city sewer, orange water, the boundaries of the so called "Walking District," 18 units per acre. Then there was the Bonita Bay and developers issues, etc., etc. Can't the complaining citizens come up with their own ideas? Seems not! Perhaps the big next issue these citizens could get together to write one blistering letter to the editor and all 5-6-7 or so sign the bottom. As a famous Governor of New Jersey said recently to a question what do we do about the government problems, "vote him out." . Oh, I almost forgot, let's throw some dirt on the property owner since he bought the property cheap, like that's not the American w ay. Maybe you folks should have went to the auction and ponied up some money and you could be the proud owners of that location. George Bostick Jr.Neighborhood visionIt's all in the eye of the beholder. When I see our neighborhood, I am so glad that I live here. It's like living at our old camp in the Everglades. When we have visitors we always hear, "This is like living in the woods." And it is! But the city of LaBelle apparently wants to change this old, old neighborhood into a modern, bustling walking area and the only way to do that must be to allow 11 apartments to be built here. It doesn't seem to matter that this neighborhood only has single family homes. Injecting apartments is a must to modernize LaBelle. One look at the area is all it takes to see that idea is wrong. Our neighborhood showed up for the meeting on Feb. 13 and heard "the staff felt this and the staff felt that" and so all of our objections fell on deaf ears. The developer's requests were rubber stamped. Too bad! Next! Have the people in power actually looked at the plan and corresponding sites and evaluated the zoning? Have they determined if the zoning is really appropriate for the area? Would the zoning be appropriate if it was their home sitting next door or across the street? Wouldn't THAT make a difference! Every block should be evaluated and changed if needed. No matter how much they try, LaBelle is not going to become a new Ft. Myers. Thank goodness that is why I live here in LaBelle. I was born and raised in Hendry County this is my home I know the people, I grew up with them. I do not believe that the people who love LaBelle want the new Comprehension Plan not the way it is now. And that's the thing the people of LaBelle love our town. The way it is. Ask anyone how they would change LaBelle. You will not hear "Put apartments in among single family homes." Go out to Missouri St. on the east side between Washington and Fort Thompson Rd. The wooded lot will have 14 of those oaks cut down. Imagine a 2 story, 8 unit building and a 1 story, 3 unit building there. Is that good planning or what? An old established residential neighborhood should not have 11 apartments on .7 Whisper CreekWe at Whisper Creek would like to thank all of the people that donated to our Springfest Week with a special Thank You: Anita Umpieriez, Auto Zone, Badcock Home Furniture, Beef O'Brady's, Bridge Street Auto, Bridge Street Coffee & Tea, Captain Quick Lube, Curtis Honey, Cutting Edge, Don's Steak House, Double Image Salon, Forrey Grill, Hari Liquors, Hungry Howie's Pizza, K&M Drugs, LaBelle, Family Florist, LaBelle Nails, Langford Ford, Log Cabin, Lyons Printing, Nathan's Barber Cuts, Plattner's LaBelle Dodge, Quality 1 Auto Care, Randy's Garage, Rhonda Alison, Rhodes Aluminum, Saddle Up Arcade.

Can’t wait to see you there! On Monday, March 3, LaBelle Cowboy senior pitcher Travis Burchard pitched his second career no-hitter as the Cowboys crushed the Immokalee Indians 13-0! Burchard struck out nine and walked three to win his second game of the young season. Travis did a tremendous job on the mound. He was in complete control throughout the game, locating his pitches down in the strike zone. Travis never allowed Immokalee to hit the ball out of the in eld, giving up a total of 11 ground balls to shortstop and second base the entire game. That’s tough for any pitcher to do, no matter who you play. “I am really proud of him and how he has become a complete player over his career,” said Coach Ron Dunbar. Senior center elder Sergio Flores led the Cowboy offensive barrage going 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBI. The speedster also stole three bases an scored three runs. Juniors Jarred Miller and Danny Keller were both 2-for-4 with 2 RBI, while sophomore Baylen McCormick went 2-for-3 with one RBI. On Friday, March 7, the Cowboys lost a tough 3-2 contest to the Tigers of Clewiston. Burchard and junior Felix Hernandez combined to pitch a solid game on the hill, but the Cowboy offense never got untracked, collecting only 4 hits for the evening. Hernandez had 2 of those hits for the Cowboys. “I will give Clewiston a lot of credit. They played hard and never gave in. Pitcher Dakota Jackman did a great job locating his pitches and keeping us off balance most of the night. Also, their second baseman Sammy Rios made numerous big plays every time we started to make a run. We just need to come out of the gates with a little more re and keep the heat on,” Coach Dunbar commented. The Cowboys are now 4-4 on the season.

by Pat DobbinsThe month of March is recognized as “National Colorectal (Colon) Cancer Awareness Month”. Of cancers that affect men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second leading cancer killer in the United States. Take action! Screenings can help nd pre-cancerous polyps, which are abnormal growths in the colon or rectum. These polyps can be removed before they get a chance to turn into cancer. Having regular screenings can also help nd colorectal cancer at an earlier stage and treatment during an early stage often leads to a cure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year, about 140,000 people in the US are diagnosed with colorectal cancer and more than 50,000 people die from it. However, about one-third of adults aged 50 or older (Which is the age group at greatest risk of developing colorectal cancer) have not been screened appropriately. The risk of getting colorectal cancer increases with age. More than 90% of cases occur in people who are 50 years old or older. Colorectal cancer screening saves lives, but many people are not being screened according to the national guidelines. If you are 50 years old or older, get screened now. If you think you may be at higher than average risk for colorectal cancer, talk to your healthcare provider about getting screened early; it could save your life! Precancerous polyps and colorectal cancer don’t always cause symptoms, especially at rst. You could have polyps or colorectal cancer and not know it. That is why having a screening test is so important. Symptoms for colorectal cancer may include:  Blood in or on the stool (bowel movement).  Stomach pain, aches, or cramps that do not go away.  Losing weight and you don’t know why. These symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer. If you have any of these symptoms, the only way to know what is causing them is to see your healthcare provider. There are some steps to help decrease your risk of getting colorectal cancer such as increasing the intensity and amount of your physical activity, avoiding obesity and weight gain around the midsection, and not drinking too much alcohol. You can also lower your colorectal cancer risk by not smoking. If you think you may be at high risk for colorectal cancer, talk to your healthcare provider about when and how often to get tested.

Wayne Daltry served as Executive director of the Southwest Regional Planning Council for 20 years and directed Lee County’s Smart Growth Dept. for several years.

FCAT – Florida’s Comprehensive Assessment Test. Even though April is still several w eeks away, I thought this would be a good time to remind students and parents that the FCAT dates are closing in quickly. Testing dates for the FCAT can be found on the Hendry County School Board’s website (hendryschools.org). If you’ve been following my articles then you probably know how strongly I feel about routines. Why not start a routine now that might possibly help your child do his or her best on the test? Tip #1: Try to stay healthy. Over the next several weeks help your child make good eating choices, keep germy hands washed, avoid unnecessary con ict and get plenty of rest. (Remember, if your child has a fever, then he or she should not go to school.) Tip #2: Review homework and books. Go over homework and correct mistakes each night. Also, question your child about the books he or she is reading to build recall and comprehension skills. Reviewing class w ork in the weeks leading up to FCAT can be very bene cial. Go online and use FCAT Explorer (fcatexplorer.com) to nd FCAT type questions for your child’s grade level. (Practicing online will be helpful as students begin to transition from paper and pencil tests to testing on computers.) Teachers can assist with login information if needed. Tip #3: Encourage success. Don’t stress out yourself or your child right before the test. Yes, a lot can ride on this assessment. However, the situation is stressful enough, and young minds don’t need the added pressure. Discuss the importance of the test, stay positive and remind them to always try their best! Tip #4: Go to bed at an appropriate time. Turn off the television or video game and get a good night’s sleep. Brains can recall and analyze information much better if they are well rested. Tip #5: Provide a good protein-rich breakfast. A well balanced meal (think scrambled eggs and not sugary cereal) in the morning is fuel for the brain. Hungry kids are more easily distracted and fatigued so encourage your child to eat! Free breakfast is offered at each school, but during testing times a kid may need a little more yummy in his tummy! Tip #6: Dress appropriately. Make sure out ts are comfortable and not restrictive. Your child will be sitting in a chair for some time. Tight or heavy clothing may become distracting. Layer comfy clothes or send a light jacket in case the classroom is cold. Tip #7: Arrive on time each day. This is de nitely not the time to be late or have an unexcused absence. Once the testing begins, children cannot enter the classroom until that session has ended. Children generally perform better when taking tests with their peer groups rather than at a make-up time. Of course these tips could be considered useful year-round. However, I think they are especially important during the weeks leading up to and including the week of actual assessments. Stay tuned next month. I will discuss some test taking tips for students! FCAT – Tips Before The Test March is Colorectal (Colon) Cancer Awareness Month Amanda Nelson

Tina, a 100 percent disabled veteran, has given unsel shly of her time and service to a multitude of w orthy organizations. She’s been a driving force behind the Woman’s Club for the past few years, and she never thinks twice before throwing her efforts behind any project the club tackles. When you rst meet Tina, she can come across as a bit aggressive or overly assertive. But, you soon learn that this is a result of her undying passion to help others and to drive necessary change in our community. She wants to be in the know. She wants to nd out what needs done. And, nally, she sees to it that any worthy project is tackled w ith style! This is true for her work with the W oman’s Club as well as with the many other organizations she supports—Disabled A merican Veterans, The American Legion, Daughters of the American Revolution, Heifer International, Days for Girls, Dress for Success, Humane Society, Women for Women international, Hacienda House, Community Sew, American Sewing Guild and many other community projects—especially any project with an emphasis on education or veterans services. She walks the walk... She asks no one to do something she wouldn’t do herself. She doesn’t just say “you should...” She says “we will!” She helps plan the projects and then jumps in feet rst to see them through to the end. She invests her time, her effort and her nancial support as well as rallying both physical and nancial support from any other source possible. She talks the talk... She is a strong advocate for any worthy cause. She will make it heard and known through every venue available to her. She creates and distributes posters and news releases. She uses word of mouth, the press and the various internet outlets. For example, in 2013 her efforts managed to help stop our community from taking on a 30 year monetary commitment to a golf course that many believed was doomed from the beginning. She supports a broad mix of projects sewing quilts to be raf ed to support the Woman’s Club scholarship fund—purchasing all materials out of pocket; sold raf e tickets for those quilts till her hubby accused her of selling her “stuff” on the street! She spearheaded bringing a lecture series on genealogy to the club and community. One of the Woman’s Club’s best fundraisers this past year was called a Mother’s Day Off Basket. Tina rounded up over $600 worth of gift certi cates for services and merchandise from area businesses. These were put into a raf e basket and all proceeds from the raf e went to the club’s scholarship fund. She has served as club secretary since 2012. She single handedly gathered and compiled its yearly reports for 2012, going member-by-member and generating lists of hours and donations. This was the rst time the club had reported in probably more than ten years. She’s always on the lookout or potential members and fundraising ideas. She doesn’t hesitate to put her money where her mouth is and uses her own funds to get projects rolling. Late in 2013, Tina was distressed to learn of the need for feminine hygiene products in so many parts of the world. She worked to inform the Woman’s Club and communit y of this need and has challenged the club to make 500 kits for Days for Girls (daysforgirls. org) during 2014. She encourages other club members to nd projects and bring them to the Woman’s Club for help. Members o f the LaBelle Woman’s Club are grateful to have Tina as a member. Her spirit, passion and energy make so man y things possible. Tina Noel has been nominated for Volunteer of the Year for 2013 Tina Noel
