Thursday, March 27, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 13 Looking for grants to nish Sports Complexby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At the March 13 City commission meeting, commissioners took action that will allow the HendryLaBelle Recreation Board to apply for grants on its own that will not obligate the city or the county. Although the rec board, is made up of members from the county, city and school board, it will be able to borrow the money on its own, the city and county boards must still approve the rec board’s budget. To pay off the loan, the rec board will allocate the $25 of residents’ recreation fee (which was previously earmarked for the old plan to build a golf course) in order to nish Forrey Sports Park. Seeking a loan is the only way the rec board can nish the park and not encumber the city and county. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Hendry County commissioners have a lot to think about as they begin to consider their options for th e 2014-15 budget. At their March 25 meeting, they received information on how franchise fees could affec t next year’s budget. Finance Director Jennifer Davis ran through an analysis for th e board. She said that imposing a 5.9 percent electrical franchise fee to all existing utilities in unincorporated Hendry County would bring in an additional $875,000 per year, based on current gures. At today’s property valuation, that would equal approximately .5000 mills, she said. However, new property valu e estimates are due in June and Jul y and the board is looking for somewhat of an increase in those property values. Natural gas is only beginning to come into Hendry County and customers on both sides of the count y could begin to connect soon. If tha t happens, revenue from that sourc e could go up. The impact of electrical franchise fees to taxpayers could b e an extimated .5000 mill decreas e in the proposed millage rate o f 8.9709 mills (which would make i t 8.4709 mills). That gure would b e an increase of 1.25 mills over th e current 7.7209 millage rate. If the board were to impos e Franchise fees could bolster budget Kickin’ up their heels!Caloosa Belle/ Dale ConyersVo-deeo-do and razzmatazz were the watch words for the night at the annual LaBelle Chamber of Commerce Giveaway March 22.

The rec board received approval from the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners at its last meeting and was to adopt the at its Tuesday, March 18 meeting. Mayor Dave Lyons, a member of the Rec Board, said the funding will be used in part to complete lighting and the concession stand. The board approved a zoning change to allow Child Care of Southwest Florida’s Children’s Garden of LaBelle to relocate from its SR 80/Martin Luther King Blvd. site to 88 South Main Street, across from the Courthouse. Last month the commission failed to take a vote on the request so it was brought forw ard again for the vote. The item passed 4-0 w ith some minor changes. Commissioner Greg Bone was not at the meeting.LFDFire Chief Clint Walker reported that LaBelle Fire Department answered 57 calls for service last month, many of them brush res or wrecks. This represents an increase in activity over the same time last year, he said. In other business: The board approved a resolution that will allow the city to seek grant funding for a third section of the new wharf on the river. This portion will close the gap between the rst phase east of the bridge, and the next section to the east. The city has ordered culverts for the washout at Selma Daniels and Withlacootchee Ave. The road will be closed for the work, which should be done in a week or so.

Even with the estimated elecrical and natural gas franchise fees, taxpayers would be hit with a .6900 mill increase over the existing millage (or 8.4109 mills). The board members were cautioned that these are just preliminary gures. Everything hinges on how property values change and on any change in county revenues. Commissioner Michael Swindle made the motion to have staff move forward on budget discussions using the proposed franchise fees. Commissioner Don Davis seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

"Caution is needed this time of year due to drier weather conditions," states Melissa Yunas, Florida Forest Service. Saturday a wild re threatened two homes and damaged one boat and a power pole off of Ash Road. The cause was unauthorized debris pile burning. On Saturday, March 22, Cypress Fire, off Ash Road started about 1:44 p,m. and burned 20 acres. The Sunday, March 23, Altman, off Alman Lane, burned three acres. Florida Forest Service and Glades County Fire Department want to remind residents to know the law before you strike that match. "Your local Florida Forest Service in Palmdale can answer your burning setback, authorization and onsite questions," Melissa explains, "if your re escapes then you can be held liable for any damages or injuries." Sunday a wild re ignited off of Altman Lane and Glades County Fire Department quickly extinguished the grass wild re. Florida Forest Service investigated the cause and found it was ignited by equipment. Florida Forest Service & Glades County Fire Department want to remind residents do not pull off of roadways into tall, dry grass. Hot exhaust pipes and muf ers can easily start wild res that you may not see until it's too late! State Wildland Fire ghters encourage homeowners who live near nature to build a wild re emergency kit, and make a wild re plan with your family. Design your home and landscaping with safety in mind, and use materials and plants that might contain a re, instead of fueling it. Regularly cleaning gutters is a must, and move ammable objects like patio furniture away from the house. Protect vinyl and wood construction materials; they are more vulnerable to re. And if there is a wild re nearby, evacuate early! Take your emergency kit and follow your family wild re plan. Learn how to be a good neighbor with nature at www.

March Madness got its name because the NCAA basketball tournament provides stunning upsets each season. Unpredictability is a big part of the tournament’s appeal. At any point in the competition, an unknown squad can suddenly catch re, hitting shot after shot, to knock off a heavily favored opponent. However, if you were lling out an NCAA tournament bracket from 1967 to 1973, then you should have chosen the same champion every single year. Coach John Wooden’s UCLA Bruins won seven consecutive titles! No other men’s collegiate team has won more than two NCAA tournaments in a row. Why did John Wooden’s teams win so often? Obviously, they had talented players, but what set UCLA apart from the competition was their commitment to loyalty. UCLA’s players were intensely loyal to their leader, Coach John Wooden. Why were they so loyal? One reason – they trusted him! President John F. Kennedy wrote in his book Pro les in Courage, “Great crises produce great men and great deeds of courage.” How do we respond when we face a great crisis? As Christians, how does our faith change how we respond to a great crisis? Can you really trust God? One of the most popular stories in the Bible is the story of Job. Job was a godly man, who loved his family and was very wealthy and in uential. Job would appear today on the show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. But then tragedy came his way, and he lost everything. Instead of giving up his faith, he declared, “Yet will I trust him” (Job 13:15). He suffered bankruptcy. He faced the death of his children. He battled disease. He had marriage problems as a result of the other troubles. Everything went wrong, but he could say, “Yet will I trust him!” What can we learn from Job about trusting God? Trust God in spite of feelings. Job went through the same feelings of confusion, depression and fear that we go through when we suffer a tragedy. But he held on to his faith in God. “Yet will I trust him” means in spite of my feelings I will trust Him. Just because we trust God doesn’t mean we aren’t going to be angry, disappointed and depressed. It means we aren’t going to let those feelings control us and destroy us. We can rise above our feelings by our faith. Trusting God doesn’t mean your life is going to be perfect. “Yet” means that life brings us both positive and negative: good times and bad times. Faith is not fantasy! We can face the realities of this life and still worship our God because He is with us in bad times as well as good. Faith doesn’t always keep us out of the re, but it always takes us through the re, so that we are rened as pure gold. Trusting God is a matter of personal conviction based on your experience with God. “Yet will I trust him,” is a very personal statement. You can’t hitch a ride on somebody else’s faith! You have to be able to say from your heart, “I will trust him.” Nobody can do that for us. As you experience God more and more in your life, your personal faith in Him will get stronger so that you can make it through anything life brings your way. Trust God for a new chapter in your life. The Lord turned things around for Job and gave him twice as much as he had before his troubles. You need to know you can write a new chapter. What you’re going through right now is not the nal chapter. God will turn things around for you just like he did for Job. You need only to look to Him and trust Him and not let anything keep you from trusting Him.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. Who can you really trust?

Some Florida school districts have found certain strategies to be highly bene cial in helping increase participation their School Breakfast Programs. Make breakfast a part of the school day Move breakfast out of the cafeteria before school and make it convenient for students to participate Implementing alternative delivery models have proven to be the most successful strategies for schools to increase breakfast participation. Options include Breakfast in the Classroom All children are offered breakfast in their classroom, either at the beginning of the school day or early in the day. Grab-and-Go Children can easily grab the components of their breakfast quickly from the cafeteria line or from carts or kiosks elsewhere on school grounds and eat outside of the cafeteria. Second Chance Breakfast -Offers students a second chance to obtain and eat breakfast after homeroom or rst period. No cost to Students Providing "univ ersal" breakfast at no-charge to all students, helps erase the stigma associated with free breakfast Support from teachers and administratorsGaining support from the school administration and teachers is essential to providing a seamless School Breakfast Program. Provide a free breakfast for teachers. Provide specialty trashcans for breakfast trash only. Serve what they like Providing breakfast items that the children are interested in and want to eat. It helps draw them to the program. Second chance for older students Serving middle and high school students after rst period allows them ample time to socialize in the morning before the beginning of the day and provides them with a nutritious start early in the day. Involve students in the process In a high schools with a culinary program, having students in training to help pack classroom breakfasts for the next morning provides necessary training time for these students and helps support the school breakfast program. Combat litter For graband-go models, schools implement garbage pick-up for students who are late to class; this eliminates the litter but also encourages students not to litter in the rst place. For the little ones, schools can assign one student each week to pick up the classroom breakfast trash and deliver to a central, designated spot outside the classroom to reduce impact on the janitorial staff.

The good news comes after years of habitat problems for the lake in northwest Collier County, the largest natural lake south of Lake Okeechobee. During the mid-1990s, excessive amounts of muck created poor w ater quality with low oxygen levels that led to several large sh kills. The problems nearly eliminated the largemouth bass population in this location. In 2004, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) led a multimilliondollar dredging/restoration project. The task took six years to complete after crews removed more than 6 million cubic yards of muck. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) established a plan for controlling problem exotics such as hydrilla and West Indian marsh grass, and helped restore bene cial aquatic plants like bulrush and Illinois pondweed. Starting in 2010, the FWC began restocking the lake with 500,000 largemouth bass ngerlings to help supplement the native population. Today, the stocked bass make up about 40 percent of the bass population at Lake Trafford, and are generally at least 12 inches long. Several agencies continue to work together to improve the long-term health of the lake, and their efforts are paying off. A t a recent bass tournament, the winning team caught ve sh that together weighed 28.2 pounds. The largest sh out of the bag w eighed 7.5 pounds. The second-place team had a bag limit of ve sh that totaled 25.4 pounds, with the largest sh weighing 6.7 pounds. As if good shing alone weren't enough reason to sh Lake Trafford, the FWC's TrophyCatch (TrophyCatchFlorida.com) program just announced a special incentive. An award will be given to the angler who has the rst bass heavier than 8 pounds from Lake Trafford that is approved for TrophyCatch recognition. This package contains several items, including a U.S. Reel casting reel, Glen Lau DVD, gift certi cate for four adults at Airboats and Alligators at Lake Trafford Marina, in addition to standard TrophyCatch incentives. To learn more see our social media sites at Facebook.com/TrophyCatchFlorida, and visit Facebook.com/ TheParadiseCoast. Bass are back at Lake Trafford

The kitten was rescued last May in Collier County after the panther had apparently been struck by a vehicle. The approximately 9-month-old female kitten had a fracture in her right hind leg, rib fractures and bruising around the lungs. Rescuers took her to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida, where she had surgery that used a steel plate to mend the bone together. After she recovering she was transported to White Oak, a conservation center in Y ulee, where she received care until she was fully healed and ready for release. A four-year-old male, wearing a radio collar, was discovered dead March 17 at the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area, which encompasses sawgrass marshes, tree islands, levees and canals. The cause of death is unknown. The panther will be sent to the lab of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in Gainesville for a necropsy. This year seven panthers have been found dead, four from vehicle collisions. A n estimated 100 to 160 panthers remain in Florida, most occupying Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park and the private lands to the north and west of these areas.
