At the board’s April 10 meeting, City Planner Shellie Johnson explained that the Smart Code is derived from a national concept calling for a return to seeing downtown areas as gathering places. The projec t is funded by a $20,000 grant from th e Department of Economic Opportunity. The planner is engaged in writing city zoning code for Downtown Walking District that is designed to continue redevelopment along a historical context for the downtown area. The code would encourag e walking, social participation and a “sense of local character” that th e city has been moving toward fo r years. Several years ago the city sough t public input for guidelines based on visioning of a downtown walking district. Ms. Johnson said the nex t step is to write a zoning code to promote that visioning process. First, Ms. Johnson said they identi ed the city’s core area with th e most commercial use and highes t residential density. The idea is to make downtown LaBelle a “destinaLaBelle plans ‘walking district’ Digging deepCaloosa Belle/Patty BrantThe Molina family stood tall at Saturday’s Relay for Life. Their youngest member, Arik now 8 is their own little miracle. At just four years of age, Little Arik woke up crying. His legs hurt. He couldn’t walk, and was soon diagnosed with leukemia. He braved over three years of daily chemotherapy as well as steroids, spinal taps and other treatments from August 2011-November 2013. His parents, David and Arlene, said Arik was the “exception to every rule” about cancer treatment. Their little boy kept his sense of humor throughout, and was a source of strength to his family, including siblings Adan, 11, and Amelia, 18. Today he is cancer-free, a happy well adjusted second grader at Upthegrove Elementary School. A true Relay for Life success story.

LaBelle Middle School is going to do various activities to inform students about Earth Day. We are going to decorate grocery bags; they will have pencils, erasers, and buttons in them. Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson wanted a way to educate people about protecting the Earth, so in the spring of 1970 he made April 22 Earth Day. America used to be the only country to celebrate this holiday. In 1990 Earth Day became a worldwide holiday. Earth Day is all about conserving energy and doing things that are good for the Earth. Earth Day has been successful on informing the public about environmental concerns. Without Earth Day some people wouldn’t care about what happens to our environment. Earth day informs people of the impact their actions have on the environment. To help you can:  plant trees  learn about issues facing the environment  reduce, reuse, and recycle  clean up litter  wear green or brown  buy environment-friendly products How will you celebrate Earth Day?

It is this transitional area that recently caused an uproar with residents surrounding the “Missouri Street PUD,” allowing an apartment complex at the edge of the core downtown district and a single family residential neighborhood. The PUD includes some parking on the street for apartment residents. Ms. Johnson said the code will establish a framework for a small walking district based on the city’s existing small lot pattern and protect its existing historical context. The plan is designed to keep a local av or and includes several transitional areas of varying densities and uses. She said that minor exceptions may be made by staff in some areas, while deviations that cause inconsistencies in the code would need to be addressed by a public hearing. She said many details remain to be w orked out with a draft possibly ready for J une. In a related exchange, resident Bonnie Feickert addressed the board with complaints about the way it handled dealing with neighborhood opposition to the recently passed Missouri Street PUD. She accused the board of doing a “lousy job” of communication w ith residents and said the board of “trusted elected of cials” owes them a better explanation of what happened. She said it felt to residents like the board didn’t care about them and had already made its decision before hearing from them. She added that the board is ”lucky to have” PliDitShlliJhh helped residents understand the process. Mayor Dave Lyons said that he thought the board conveyed information appropriately that night. As per the current zoning code, the property owner could have done the project without making any concessions to the city. City Attorney Angela Hill explained that the commissioners are not supposed to answer questions and interface with the public at meetings. In the end, Mayor Lyons said he was glad Ms. Feickert came and expressed her opinion and that the board needs that kind of involvement.  talk about your environmental concerns  ride your bike instead of driving your car Did you know?  The average American produces more than 4 pounds of garbage per day  Americans throw away 25 billion Styrofoam cups a year  Plastic requires 100-400 years to break down in a land ll  Recycling 2,000 pounds of paper saves 17 trees  The average American uses more than 750,000 gallons of water per year Earth DayContinued From Page 1 CityContinued From Page 1 Submitted photo/ Brenda BarnesEaster FunOn Saturday, April 12 the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle sponsored the annual Egg Hunt and Scavenger Hunt at the LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store. Approximately 50 kids participated in the event and prizes were awarded in four age group categories. There were thousands of eggs scattered all over the eld behind the Thrift Store. LaBelle High School Key Club Members and West Glades Builders Club Members helped the kids to gather their eggs while parents watched and snapped photos. There were 40 scavenger hunt items hidden all over the Kiwanis property for the older kids. Participants in the scavenger hunt had 10 clues; then they had to "guess" what the item was and then search for those items within a certain allotted time. Of course the Easter Bunny (Mary Bartoshuk) was there bringing smiles to everyone! The kids (of all ages) seemed to have a wonderful time!

LaBelle, FL – On April 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Drug Free Hendry County, Hendry County Sherriff, K&M Drugs and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to K&M Drugs at 149 W. Hickpochee Ave, LaBelle or at 340 E. Sugarland Hwy., Clewiston. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last October, Americans turned in 324 tons (over 647,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at over 4,114 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. When those results are combined with what was collected in its seven previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 3.4 million pounds—more than 1,700 tons—of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines— ushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. DEA is in the process of approving ne w regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) o f controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorne y General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.

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. Thank you for allowing me to share this w ith you, Abuse Counseling & Treatment, Inc. {ACT} has served victims of domestic violence and their children, survivors of sexual assault and human traf cking in Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties for over 35 y ears. We provide 24-hour hotline, safe emergency shelter with 90 beds and a circle of support services which includes individual and group counseling, case management, medical, legal and personal advocacy, assistance with crime compensation and relocation, child assessments and children's program, support and assistance with injunctions for protection, support throughout the judicial system minding accompaniment to court, 24-hour-on-call counseling and support at all local hospitals and our rape crisis center, and profession and community education throughout the communities we serve including middle and high school educational programs. Many victims we serve have only the clothes they are wearing when they arrive. We are able to give them back things they need and a new beginning. Through counseling, services and assistance they are able to make healthier choices and be free from the violence. All services are offered free of charge. ACT is a non-pro t organization funded in part by the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties, Lee County, City of Cape Coral, City of Ft Myers, Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Florida Council Against Sexual Violence, Florida Department of Health, Of ce of Attorney General, fundraising and private donations. Our mission is to eliminate domestic violence, sexual assault and human traf cking through the services we provide by the quality and excellence of our Board, staff and volunteers. Our services will provide the survivors and their children with support and options for beginning the journey to a safe, healthy relationship and life. We presently operate two emergency shelters, one in Fort Myers and another in Cape Coral. Our Hendry-Grades County shelter, which was rented, closed six years ago due to circumstances beyond our control and it has taken us this long to nd appropriate space and funding to purchase a building that can be transformed into a beautiful shelter for these victims and their children. Last month, we purchased a 3,700 square foot building in LaBelle through a grant from the State of Florida. The physical structure is a perfect base to build from, but before we can open our doors a number of improvements must be made. The improvements are mandated and required by law. Having a shelter located in LaBelle, again, is essential to the success and safety of the victims and their children living in Hendry and Glades Counties. This building location is perfect. Our clients will have numerous agencies of which they will bene t from services, within walking distance. Once the facility is up and running, we will also be able to offer forensic examinations for rape victims. Law enforcement and family members will no longer have to travel with the victims to Lee County.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. We are working hard to try and nd the necessary funds to complete this project that is so worthwhile and will have such an impact on the community.

The Firehouse Community Theatre proudly presents this year’s “Off Bridge Street” production, Night Watch, written by Lucille Fletcher and directed by Mike Shough. Night Watch is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.” An outstanding Broadway success, this ingeniously devised thriller builds steadily in menace and suspense until its nal, breathstopping moment. Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees (or believes she sees) the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The police are called, but nd nothing except an empty chair. Elaine’s terror grows as shortly thereafter she sees still another body—this time a woman’s—but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas. Her husband, claiming that Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown, calls in a lady psychiatrist, who agrees with his suggestion that Elaine should commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment. From this point on, the plot moves quickly and grippingly as those involved—Elaine’s old friend and house guest, Blanche; the inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door; and the nosy German maid, Helga—all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery o f the play as it draws towards its riveting and chilling climax. Night Watch stars Jeni Dyess, Travis Dowhen, Doug Patterson, Laura Reed, Joel Reinking, Dennis Rock, Lori Shula, Brittan y Steinke and Joe Timm. Assistant director / stage manager is Linda Patterson. Showtimes are Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 2 p.m. Night Watch runs for one wee k only, and please note that this is not part o f our regular season ticket package.

He shares this same passion for teaching, and his students often leave his class viewing biology and bugs in a whole new light. Dr. Hermann comes to us after retiring from the University of Georgia after 30 years of instruction. When interviewing for the position, he said to me, “I just got bored in retirement, and I missed teaching terribly.” I rst met him on the Lee Campus after being introduced by the now Dean of Pure and Applied Sciences, Dr. Theo Koupelis. Indeed, I was looking for a distinguished elderly gentleman, but what I found was a downto-earth, pony-tailed man, deep in study about bugs and clinging to a butter y net! Needless to say, Dr. Hermann has brought a lot of “life” to the Hendry/Glades Center. His interest, now expertise, in entomology, all began from his childhood exploits on the bayou. Dr. Hermann is a native of New Orleans and lived just a mile down the road from the swampy regions where the mouth of the Mississippi meets the Gulf of Mexico. His mother would tell him growing up, “Henry, don’t spend too much time down by the bayou, or you’ll get sick.” Despite her best efforts, young Henry was just too attracted to the wildlife. He would often escape for hours, enchanted by the pristine waters and the simplicity of the natural habitat. In other w ords, the interactions of reptiles, bugs, tics and parasites were worth getting poison ivy and at least one trip to the hospital! What began as a childhood interest led to a career in both graduate and undergraduate instruction at Louisiana State University. He mused with me once that after receiving his Ph.D. in 1967, he was so immersed in study that he heard a man humming a song about a “yellow submarine” and had no idea what the man was singing about. That same dedication is displayed today as he instructs our current students. What I admire most about “Hank,” as I like to call him, is that he always has time for everyone else, and he never stops learning. He just recently took on a few new Anatomy and Physiology classes so our students would no longer have to travel to the Lee Campus or take the course online. The truth is, many of his students just realize how fortunate they are to have him as an instructor and cannot wait to take another one of his classes. Dr. Hermann has written 17 books, over 100 articles, and co-authored nine chapters in as many books over the past several years, and he has just recently nished a book for children that my son is reading at this moment. Our goal is to have Dr. Hermann host seminars and workshops for our science teachers in town, and maybe even have a book signing “meet and greet” this fall. Until then, feel free to stop in at the Hendry/ Glades Center and see him. His students do it all the time. Feel free to “bug” him—it’s okay!Dr. Duke DiPo is the Academic Service Coordinator Academic Coordinator and fellow professor of Religion and the Cornerstone Experience at the Edison State College Hendry/ Glades Center. Dr Hermann from ESC campus was Born on the Bayou

The students had the opportunity to watch barrel racing, relay races, team tying and a roping demonstration. These demonstrations were given by West Glades School own Cross Fulford and Ty Murray. Horses, a calf and an Angus bull were present at the event. Students learned about how the animals are cared for and what they eat. To end the day, students were able to join in the fun with a mock relay race using stick horses and try their hands at roping the steer dummies. All the students enjoyed the rodeo and had lots of fun. A big thank you to Mr. Brad Murray for taking the time from his day to come out to bring the animals, supplies needed and overseeing the event.
