The increase is needed to repay loans for the city’s new reverse osmosis water plant. Rates will generally increase by 20 percent across the board. Commissioner Hilda Zimmerly noted that recent increases have been very steep because the city had not raised its water rates in many years. LaBelle water customers can expect one more big rate increase in the future to repay the cost of the new plant. After that customers can expect more palatable increases on a regular basis to keep up with the market. The nal vote on the water rate increase will be at the city’s April 10 meeting. The board voted to move its meeting time to 6 p.m. by Patty BrantFour deputies remain sidelined after a March 5 incident in which a man was killed. Hendry County Sheriff’s Deputies R. Leverenz is a 20.5 year la w enforcement veteran; D/S S. Harrynarine 4.5 years, D/S M. Yeomans 1.2 years and D/S J. Kearns 10 months, will remain on administrative leave until the Florida Department of Law Enforcement completes its standard investigation o f of cer-involved shootings. Just before 11 p.m. that night the deputies were called to the scene of a reported battery. The y had just turned onto E Road from SR 29 when they came upon 23year-old Eddy Barrios. When Barrios raised his shotgun and turned toward them, three of the deputies red. The fourth did not have a clear shot. Mr. Barrios died at LeHigh Regional Hospital. In recent years, there have only been three other situations in which Hendry County deputies shot suspects In two of them, deputies were seriously injured. On June 30, 1995, two deputies, Porter Walker and Steven Creighton were investigating a stolen car key complaint and arrived at a SR 29S residence at 8:30 a.m. Thirty-six-year-old Gervas Montique had barricaded himself in a nearby mobile home.

The subject came out of the rear door and attacked Deputy Walker with a machete, striking him in his left temporal area. Deputy Walker red and killed his assailant as he attempted to strike the deputy again. On August 21, 2000, deputies responded to a shooting at 1040 Wallen Street in which 31-year-old Annina Dorene Strange died after being shot multiple times by her estranged husband, Robbie Dale Strange, 37. Working with Glades County deputies on a tip, Hendry of cers located Strange in Muse later that evening on a dirt road south of CR 720. Strange was hiding in a eld next to where his vehicle was located, reportedly smoking crack. When the deputies approached, Strange confronted them. He refused to halt but instead picked up a shotgun and red, striking K-9 Deputy Shelton Blackwell in the leg. Other deputies red at Strange, who was pronounced dead at the scene. A tourniquet was applied to Deputy Blackwell’s injury, likely saving his life. He was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital for surgery. On September 22, 2004, deputies were in pursuit of a vehicle driven by 27-year-old Deanna K. Hall. Deputies were called by another driver who had been rear-ended by Hall while stopped at a red light at SR 80 and SR 29. Hall continued west on SR 80. Pursued by deputies, Hall continued west, then made a U-turn headed back into LaBelle and drove on the wrong side of the road, backtracking several times during the pursuit. She was eventually stopped near the Presto where seven deputies shot at her vehicle. Hall was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital. None of the of cers were injured.

Tallahassee –March 5, 2014 – More children in Florida are starting the day with school breakfast, but the state – and Hendry County – still are missing more than half of eligible children. A new report released recently by Florida Impact and the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) found that Florida schools served 48.5 low-income children breakfast for every 100 that received lunch during the 2012-2013 school year -an increase from the previous school year when 46.9:100 received breakfast. Hardee County had a participation rate of 43.1:100 during the 20122013 school year. According to the report, A Good Start for Learning: School Breakfast Participation in Florida, increasing participation in the School Breakfast Program so that 70 lowincome children eat breakfast for every 100 who eat school lunch would feed an additional 249,000 low-income children statewide and bring in an additional $64 million in federal funding to the state. Higher participation also provides countless rewards for children and schools. Research demonstrates school breakfast’s contribution to improved school attendance and student behavior, higher learning and test scores, and improved student health. The report measures the reach of the School Breakfast Program throughout the state and in each of Florida’s 67 county school districts by comparing the number of low-income children eating school lunch to the number of such children eating school breakfast. Participation rates ranged from 93.4 lowincome children eating school breakfast to 100 eating school lunch in Glades County to 33.9 to 100 in Sarasota County. Hendry County ranked 57 out of 67. Had it met the 70:100 goal, 1,222 additional Hendry County children would have received breakfast each day and the county could have gained $307,692 in additional federal resources. “Florida must make breakfast more accessible to students. Expanding participation in breakfast is one of the most effective ways of promoting health and academic success for low-income children,” said Dr. Debra Susie, Florida Impact’s Executive Director. “Increasing breakfast participation rates will help students start the day healthy, and prepare them to learn.” The report highlights a number of strategies that districts can implement to increase participation rates. Chief among them is offering breakfast free of charge to all children, as well as moving breakfast service out of the cafeteria and into the classroom, the bus loop, or using other service alternatives. A report on national school breakfast participation and trends released by the Food Research and Action Center last month found that school districts across the countr y with the highest participation rates all have large-scale programs that allow students to eat breakfast in their classrooms at the beginning of the school day. Nationally, increased participation in the School Breakfast Program this year also was driven by new strategies, including the Community Eligibility Provision, which allows high-poverty schools to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students without the need for individual applications. Research by FRAC found that in the original seven participating Community Eligibility states – D.C., Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Ohio and West Virginia – average daily breakfast participation among lowincome children increased by ve percent, compared to 2.5 percent in all other states. Community Eligibility option was implemented in Florida in the 2013-2014 school year, and 378 schools across 21 count y school districts are already participating. Further expansion of community eligibility across the state presents a tremendous opportunity for growth in school breakfast participation, and Florida Impact is urging school districts across the state to take advantage of this successful new provision. “Many counties in Florida are making progress, but additional steps need to be taken to get more children starting the da y with school breakfast,” said Susie. “Florida Impact and FRAC are joining together and urging school leaders across the state to make increased participation in school breakfast a priority. This is a program that ghts hunger, improves nutrition, and empowers children to learn. Florida can – and must – do more for its low-income children.” CLOSING ANNOUNCEMENTEffective March 10th, 2014 Englewood Home Health Care License # 20328096 Patients requiring further services will be assisted in transfer process to another agency of patient choice.

A pologiesOur apologies to Mr. James B. Hull whose name and last line were inadvertently cut off of his letter last week. W here do we go from here?Mr. Bostick is quite right; we have talked the problem of the Missouri St PUD to death. It’s time for action. Here are the facts: 1) the apartments w ere approved because they are compatible with the current “downtown walking district” speci cations. 2) The plan was conceived and approved during the real estate “bubble” when optimal growth was expected. 3) The “bubble” burst the real estate market crashed and the plan no longer ts our situation. 4) The code review board, the driving force behind the plan no longer exists. Here are the problems: 1) the city is required by law to have a comprehensive plan but we no longer have a way for citizens to petition to modify the plan. 2) Bringing concerns to the city commission board meeting is not workable as evidenced by the crowds at February meeting. 3) The city planner is quite willing to talk with people one on one but has no opportunity to meet with groups of people. 4) The people on the other hand are not organized. There is strength in numbers yielding a united petition for changes. 5) The current method of using letters to the editor publicly airs a problem. Can the results of these exchanges solve any problem? Surely we can gure out a way to talk to one another civilly and productively. Any ideas residents? City hall? Rita Dunne Beloved PetA short while ago we lost a beloved pet, a cat dear to our whole family. This cat could sense you were ill or troubled never left y our side. We lost our beloved Lil’ Bit due to three loose dogs These dogs roamed our neighborhood for about a month. They chased our horses, tore up our feed. These dogs at one time were someone’s pets. One dog in particular looked skinny, lost and sad. I called Animal Control so that he could be caught and possibly nd a home. Our neighbors kept their pets safe while the dogs havocked our neighborhood. These dogs had already killed some of our ducks. One night our beloved Lil’ Bit escaped while I was loading things in a car. I did not see him get outside or I would have retrieved him. He never went far, about two hours later we were watching a movie and heard a horrible sound. I knew it was the dogs killing another duck. I never heard a cat scream. I started looking for our pet and could not nd him. I panicked. I knew they had caught him. I called the Sheriff’s Department. A deputy came and helped me search for what I knew would be a body. It was very dark, no moon, We could not nd him. The next morning to our horror, we found him. He was horribly mauled. Please, if you want a dog, please take care of it. Keep it fenced, in your home, etc., I do not blame the dogs, They are animals. I blame the owner. He let these dogs run free to terrorize the neighborhood. Now what used to be someone’s dog will be euthanized. All three of them. Blood and scratches found on one of them. The owner must not care. Our entire family is grieving for what our precious cat endured. We will live with horror for a very long time. Please keep your pets from killing others. I want to see the day when so many animals are spayed so much that it will be dif cult to acquire a cat or dog that they will be treasured not tossed out like trash. Terri Pearce It’s Saturday. It’s just another beautiful day but there’s one thing missing. It’s an amazing cat. His name is Lil’ Bit. He would still be here if it wasn’t for those crazy dogs who mutilated the wonderful smart cat. He had an amazing trick. He knew when you were ill or in trouble. Lil Bit was a miniature lion and his worst fear was dogs because when he was little he got attacked by dogs. It’s sad that he had to die with his worst fear biting him, so people out there, please keep your dogs inside or in a fenced in yard. CelinaWhat’s up with this?A big thank you to Jimmy and Jeanette Hull and to Don and Judy Jones for having the conviction, eloquence and fortitude to inform us of yet another “done deal” regarding the property of LaBelle. Please note FOURTEEN live oaks to be removed and nine parking spaces to be dedicated on Missouri Street. That alone should have raised some eyebrows and lent voice to concern! Elected of cials where are you? What’s going on? Would you allow this on your street next to your house? See you all at election time!

Of cancers that affect men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. 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. The 2014 Surgeon General’s Report, The Health Consequences of Smoking—50 Years of Progress concluded that smoking causes colorectal cancer. If you smoke, quit smoking completely. For help quitting, call 1 (800) QUIT-NOW, text the word “QUIT” to 47848 from your mobile phone, or visit smokefree.gov. If you don’t smoke, don’t start, and avoid secondhand smoke! 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.

Washington D.C. March 12, 2014 –Five migrant/seasonal farmworker college students will be selected to live and work in D.C. for an intensive eight week internship and professional mentoring program. The goal is to provide life altering experiences and networks to help students make the intellectual, cognitive, and emotional transition from agricultural life to that of a professional. Instead of youth working in the elds harvesting fruits or vegetables in the sweltering summer heat, they will live with host families, be placed in positions from the Department of Agriculture or the National Education Association, to the Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs, or Farmworker Justice. They will all be overseen by the National Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Association. The goal of Migrant Seasonal Head Start is to prepare children to enter school ready to learn. Born 49 years ago from a desire to remove as many obstacles to academic success as possible, President Johnson created Head Start in 1965, as part of his War on Poverty. In 2014, President Obama reafrmed the value of Head Start by providing 8.8 billon dollars to extend Head Start opportunities for America’s vulnerable children. This internship is a capstone to those investments. “Every child needs a helping hand and a mentor. Professionally, we all had someone help us get where we are today,” states Cleo Rodriguez, Jr., Executive Director of NMSHSA. “NMSHSA is proud to continue extending our hand to students from across our great nation. We hope our investment will impact the lives, goals, and dreams of our interns and in turn we hope these new professionals will impact the lives of countless other migrant and seasonal youth in years to come!” The selected farmworker students must be former Migrant/Seasonal Head Start children (The Of ce of Head Start serves three divergent populations: Regional Head Start, Native American Head Start, and Migrant/ Seasonal Head Start.), be enrolled in college, and come from a family that is, or has, worked the agricultural elds of America. We recognize the many obstacles of being both a migrant/seasonal farmworker and a college student. Therefore, the youth we are targeting are those who will bene t the greatest from the structure and potential of this opportunity. Our paid internship offers: stipends, on-the-job training, networking opportunities, professional skills development, leadership development and personal/professional mentoring from consummate D.C. professionals, many of whom are also former farm workers. Despite entering our third program year, we already count great success as donations and sponsorships have increased to double the possible number of interns, and previous participants have earned year long fellowships, and continued toward both master and PhD’s. 2014 applications are available at nmshsaonline.org and are due no later than 5 pm EST on March 31, 2014. About National Migrant Seasonal Head Start Association: The National Migrant Seasonal Head Start Association (NMSHSA) consists of Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Directors, Staff, Parents, and Friends who work on issues unique to Migrant and Seasonal Head Start children and their families. By advocating for resources, creating partnerships, and affecting public policy, we help member agencies provide quality comprehensive services.

At the age of 16, Patrick had the misfortune of being kidnapped by Irish raiders who too k him away and sold him as a slave. He spent several years in Ireland herding sheep. At the age of 22, he managed to escape. He made his way to a monastery in England where he spent 12 years growing closer to God. Did you know

This week he w ill be moving to the outpatient program at Shepherd Clinic for about six weeks. Caleb looks forward to being home in time for graduation. We truly appreciate all the support we have received from the community.” That support continues.
