During the regular board meeting, the updated plan was read by title for the rst time and commissioners approved it for transmission to the Department of Economic Opportunity, 5-0. It is expected to come back to the local board for a public hearing in May. The updated plan includes information on the new water treatment plant about to come on line, census data and the new water utility rates amended to repay loan to build that plant. The increase is on xed demand and commodity rates only. The plan was approved 5-0. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The ght to prevent Florida Power & Light from building a huge “Clean Energy Center” continues. The board of county commissioners approved zoning in May 2011 that would allow the plant to be built. At its February 25 meeting, the board amended its Economic Development Element of the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and added the de nition of an Economic Engine Project and Target Industries to its Comprehensive Plan. A lawsuit seeking to force Hendry County to reverse its May 2011 rezoning of that proposed site from General Agriculture to Planned Unit Development set for April 21 at the Hendry County Circuit Court has been postponed. The struggle over the 2,300 acre in southeast Hendry County, situated in the midst of panther habitat and adjacent to the Big Cypress Reservation, continued over Earth Day, April 22, at the Hendry County Courthouse as the county commission met. Protesters at the corner of SR 80 and Bridge Street began on Monday, raising signs and seeking support from passers-by. On Tuesday, they were again at the corner and also came to the commission room to hear the proceedings and to deliver their message to commissioners once again. The commissioners listened as members of the Tribe and others spoke passionately on their reasons for opposing the power plant. Speaker after speaker raised the alarm about spoiling traditional Seminole lands as well as the loss of habitat for wildlife like panthers and birds, clean air and irreplaceable wildlands that have shaped the state of Florida and beyond. The plant proposed for southeast Hendry is the same model as one constructed several years ago at Loxahatchee in Palm Beach County. It will pump 22 million gallons of inProtesters ght proposed power plant by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle From the time we are very young, many children are told they can be anything they want. Often, though, students have no idea how to get to their career goal. It’s Community Based Work Experience Program’s Employment Specialist/Job Coach Diane Johnson’s job to guide students to a ful lling career through Vocational Rehab. Ms. Johnson works with students at LaBelle High School. She is also currently getting the program off the ground on the other side of the county at Clewiston High School.

dustrial waste water per day into the aquifer. Protesters fear endangering the area’s water source for humans and wildlife and further stressing endangered species. Heather Billie lives about two miles from the site. At the Monday protest she said she is concerned about what will happen to the air. “When we come to town it feels hard to breathe, we can smell the tar and everything not the owers and nature.” The mother of three children, ages six, three and four months, she said many drivers on SR 80 and Bridge Street gave the protesters encouragement by honking their horns and waving. Panagioti Tsolkas of Earth First lives in Palm Beach County and previously protested against FPL’s Loxahatchee site returned Tuesday and spoke before the commission. He said they lost the ght at Loxahatchee, but are prepared to continue it here in Hendry. He added that he understands FPL’s desire to situate the facility there it’s a perfect site to reach both coasts. However, Mr. Tsolkas said that area needs to remain wild and natural for the creatures and humans that call it home and enriches all of us. He also indicated that FPL is the state’s biggest lobbyist and its “most corrupt.” A Sun-Sentinal report from January 2012 quotes gures from the Environmental Protective Agency study that show the Loxahatchee plant pumps a large amount of greenhouse gases, in particular carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The report further states in part that FPL “calls the gures misleading, saying the plant is a clean, ef cient natural-gas red facility that ranks high on the EPA’s list simpl y because it is one of the largest power plants in the nation.” Group spokesman Frank Billie Jr., was there Monday and Tuesday. He said the plant would not immediately affect the environment, but the effects would eventuall y fall on our grandchildren. He recalled being able to enjoy wildlife and the woods as he was growing up. Contamination was present, but not severe at that time, he said. He pointed to serious water quality problems with a river on the Eagle Butte Reservation in South Dakota as a view to the future should the plant go into use. He said he fears the commissioners already have their minds set but the only acceptable outcome for him and his fello w protesters would be for FPL to sell that property and not build its plant there. “We all deserve a future,” he said, including all people, animals and nature.

SPRING SPECIAL! 2 Caloosa Belle April 24, 2014 W ater plantTim Taylor of Applied Technology Management (ATM) reported that construction of the new reverse osmosis water treatment plant is ahead of schedule. Scheduled to begin operation in August, he said it will most likely go into operation by the end of this month. Crews are currently laying pipe to the deep injection well about three miles from the plant.Rec DepartmentThe city commission approved a request by the Hendry-LaBelle Recreation Department that will allow it to borrow $1.4 million on its own to complete the LaBelle Sports Complex currently under construction. The county commission has already amended its portion of the inter local agreement to allow the same thing. The amendment makes it “super clear” that if the Rec Board changes its rate structure, the $25 portion of the current $100 recreation assessment must continue to be used to pay off the loan for the complex. Board approved the request unanimously.In other business:Hendry County Sheriff’s Lt. L. Richardson told the board that things are winding down with the seasonal residents leaving and had nothing remarkable to report. Director of Finance Ron Zimmerly told the board that the application for the third portion of the city’s wharf project has been sent off to the state for comment. The city will again purchase mini diplomas for LHS graduates for the class of 2014. The money has been provided in the city budget. Director of the Economic Development Board Gregg Gillman gave an impromptu overview of several small industrial companies looking at LaBelle. The upshot was that the city is in need of industrial zoning. Mayor Lyons said that one of LaBelle’s downfalls is not having ready-to-go industrial zoning sites. Ms. Johnson said the city has only eight-acre sites and really needs some 20-30-acre sites. The next LaBelle City Commission meeting : Thursday, May 8, beginning at 6 p.m.. practical experience in a student’s line of interest. Sometimes that contact teaches a student that their talents would be better suited to another line of work and that’s ne. It’s all part of the learning experience. They just continue looking for the right t. The program can help students continue their vocational goals even after high school graduation, all the way up to actually being hired. Students under 18 need parental approval to get into the program, a process which can take months, Ms. Johnson said. Ms. Johnson currently is working with two LHS juniors who are exploring the highly specialized careers of equine and canine dentistry. Holley Robertson’s desire to care for horses’ teeth was quite a challenge for Ms. Johnson, but just one call to Sweet Cypress Ranch opened the door to a unique experience with an equine dentist. Holley got the chance to assist the doctor with an actual procedure on a horse at the ranch. Austin Perez, also a junior at LHS, had a similar desire to work in canine dentistry. Ms. Johnson set up an opportunity for him to assist LaBelle veterinarian Dr. Donna Shipley in a dental procedure at the Caloosa Humane Society. Ms. Johnson nds ways to help students along their career path in various ways. Currently four of her students are studying at iTECH in Immokalee. One has graduated from its cosmetology program. The Vocational Rehab program can offer a path to many career goals. Other students in the program are interested in working in culinary arts, cosmetology, computers, daycare, mechanics and nursing elds. Sometimes all it takes is someone to shepherd young people along, to introduce them to the realities of their career goals and to help them access the appropriate training. From then on, the sky really can be the limit.

3 Caloosa Belle A pril 24, 2014 Hendry – During the 6th annual Tobacco Free Florida Week, April 21-27, Hendry Tobacco-Free Partnership and Tobacco Free Florida are emphasizing the importance of teamwork with health professionals to help smokers quit for good. Team Up to Quit is a statewide effort to raise awareness of the resources available to help Floridians quit tobacco. Clear and consistent messaging from physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and health care professionals is important to help Hendry County residents quit. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Surgeon General have recently urged all tobacco control programs and health care professionals to connect more smokers to proven effective resources. In 2012, only half of Florida’s health care professionals reported that they often assessed tobacco users’ readiness to quit or assisted smokers with a quit attempt. Through Tobacco Free Florida, smokers have the option to call the Florida Quitline, use a web-based program, or attend inperson counseling services and they may receive free FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy. For more information and resources, visit www.tobaccofree orida.com/ healthcare. “The health care community plays a critical role in helping patients understand the impact of smoking on their lives,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. J ohn Armstrong. “Patients who discuss ways to quit with their health care professionals are ultimately more successful in their quit attempts.” Why Team Up to Quit?  Patients who work with their health care professionals are ultimately more successful in their quit attempts.  When tobacco users receive treatment according to the U.S. Public Health Service’s clinical practice guideline, they report higher satisfaction with overall health care received compared to untreated tobacco users.  Smokers who quit can add up to 10 years to their life expectancy by quitting. What’s the Impact of Tobacco in Florida?  Florida’s leading preventable cause of death and disease is tobacco use.  If current rates continue, 270,200 Florida children alive today who are younger than 18 years of age will die prematurely as a result of smoking.  In 2009, the annual direct costs to Florida’s economy attributable to smoking were in excess of $19.6 billion, including direct medical costs of $7.2 billion. ABOUT TOBACCO FREE FLORIDA WEEK The sixth annual Tobacco Free Florida Week takes place from April 21-27. Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #TeamUpToQuit. ABOUT TOBACCO FREE FLORIDA Tobacco Free Florida is a statewide cessation and prevention campaign funded by Florida’s tobacco settlement fund. Tobacco Free Florida is managed by the Florida Department of Health, speci cally the Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida. Smokers and smokeless tobacco users interested in quitting are encouraged to call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-U-CAN-NOW to speak with a Quit Coach. To learn about Tobacco Free Florida and the state’s free quit smoking resources, visit www.tobaccofree orida.com or follow the campaign on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TobaccoFreeFlorida or Twitter at www.twitter.com/tobaccofree a.

Laus Deo. One detail that is never mentioned is that in Washington, D.C. there can never be a building of greater height than the Washington Monument. With all the uproar about removing the Ten Commandments, etc., this is worth a moment or two of your time. Becoming aware of this amazing historical information is vital to our generation and those that follow. On the aluminum cap, atop the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., are displayed two words: Laus Deo. No one can see these words. n fact, most visitors to the monument are totally unaware they are even there and for that matter, probably couldn’t care less. Once you know Laus Deo’s history, you will want to share this with everyone you know. These words have been there for many years; they are 555 feet, 5.125 inches high, perched atop the monument, facing skyward to the Father of our nation, overlooking the 69 square miles which comprise the District of Columbia, capital of the United States of America. Laus Deo! These are two seemingly insigni cant, unnoticed, and, perhaps often mispronounced, Latin words. Out of sight and, one might think, out of mind, but very meaningfully placed at the highest point over what is the most powerful city in the most successful nation in the world. So, what do those two words, in Latin, composed of just four syllables and only seven letters, possibly mean? Very simply, they say: ‘Praise be to God.’ Though construction of this giant obelisk began in 1848 when James Polk was President of the United States, it was not until 1888 that the monument was inaugurated and opened to the public. It took 25 years to nally cap the memorial with a tribute to the Father of our nation, Laus Deo’ Praise be to God!’ From atop this magni cent granite and marble structure, visitors may take in the beautiful panoramic view of the city with its division into four major segments. From that vantage point, one can also easily see the original plan of the designer, Pierre Charles l’Enfant ... a perfect cross imposed upon the landscape, with the White House to the north. The Jefferson Memorial is to the south, the Capitol to the east, and the Lincoln Memorial to the west. “A cross?” you ask. “Why a cross?” What about separation of church and state? Yes, a cross. The term “Separation of church and state” was not, is not, nor has it ever been in the Constitution. So, read on. How interesting and, no doubt, intended to carry a profound meaning for those who bother to notice. When the cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid on July 4th, 1848, deposited within it were many items including the Holy Bible presented by the Bible Society. Such was the discipline, the moral direction, and the spiritual mood given by the founder and rst President of our unique democracy ‘One Nation Under God.’ Have you ever read George Washington’s Prayer for America? Ever heard about it? Here it is: Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And, nally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and paci c temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religions, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.’ Laus Deo! It is hoped you will alert others of this great historical reality. Every child should know, as well as every sister, brother, father, mother or friend. May God Help America! Laus Deo!Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. He routinely prays that America will awaken from her slumber and return to her roots of looking to God instead of her Government for support. Laus Deo: What does it mean? Editor:LaBelle’s vandals have struck the LaBelle Heritage Museum again! First, it was stealing the irreplaceable models of a mother Florida Panther and her cubs donated by the late Helen Quinn, famous not only for building her own home down to the very last nail but also for her furniture and upholstery w ork. This model was something local children always liked to pet and hug when they v isited our museum. Next, the vandals took an 8 ft. replica of a windmill from the north side of the museum, Many visitors really had no idea what a windmill did and were fascinated by an explanation of how windmills were used not only in the old days and still are today. Most recently, these vandals ripped a banner off the front of LaBelle Heritage Museum that showed T. A. Youngblood & Sons Building Movers, Inc., as the company who will move the historic H. A. Rider buildings from their temporary home on South Lee Street to a permanent home at 360 North Bridge Street. These vandals may live in LaBelle, but they are de nitely not part of LaBelle. If anyone of them brags about what they did to the museum, please let them know their petty vandalism is not appreciated and only shows how unthinkingly cruel and downright heartless they really are. Joe Thomas, President LaBelle Heritage MuseumFranchise feesDear Editor:I understand the Hendry County Commission recently had discussions regarding a new “franchise fee” which would be assessed to utilities in unincorporated Hendry County. This “fee” is a use tax which would be assessed to utilities and would then be passed directly down to customers who live outside Clewiston and LaBelle. The information provided to the County Commission was based on data provided by FPL and indicated an average increase of $6.48 per month or $77.16 annually for a “typical” 1000 kw FPL electric bill. For reference, I own and pay utility bills at two homes here in Florida and one back in Massachusetts (AKA Taxachusetts). As shown below, my utility bill here in unincorporated Hendry County has the highest rate of these three already. It is 59% greater per KWH than my house served by FPL which includes FPL’s franchise fee and 16% greater than my home in Taxachusetts, which has surcharges for energy ef ciency and renewable energy which has helped tiny frigid Massachusetts have more than double the installed solar capacity than the “Sunshine State” (https://openpv.nrel.gov/ rankings). The recent addition of natural gas is one of the greatest new attractions for businesses to relocate here. It is environmentally and economically a great driver for the area. Unfortunately, the addition of these franchise fees will probably keep the gas companies from affordably expanding to more business and residential areas. The high cost of utilities make it dif cult for businesses to thrive and survive in this area and actions that increase these rates will surely dissuade new business from locating here. Our commissioners should reject this job killing, economically unsound idea. Oppose franchise fees on our utilities!Dan Kallin Clewiston, FL Letters to the Editor Les Morgan

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The Hendry-LaBelle Recreation Department is making a serious attempt to tap into a part of the community’s multi-faceted culture and economy by starting to bring in performances by big name Hispanic musical acts. The department’s rst such concert showcased Los Tucanes de Tijuana, attracting some 2,000 fans to the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds. With a huge fan base, the group has sold out performances in major venues like Dodger Stadium and the Houston Astrodome. The group brought a professional concert package with it, lighting and staging, treating the crowd to a top notch concert experience. Rec Department Director Ramiro Rodriguez is elated about the success. “The crowd made the rodeo grounds pavilion look small!” he enthused. It was a beautiful day for the event, which Ramiro proudly says went off without even one complaint. The concert offered Mexican transplants from all over South Florida an opportunity to enjoy a welcome taste of home. Ramiro is serious about making LaBelle an attractive place for top level professional music concerts of all types, transforming this into a destination for music lovers to come, enjoy their favorite bands and, in the process, give LaBelle a healthy economic boost. Pro ts from such projects go into the Rec Department to be used for the bene t of all residents. In fact, the Rec Department is thinking about another concert on Friday, May 9, for Cinco de Mayo. Details will be available later.

Shellie explained that a group of local citizens have initiated an effort to support the City in a revitalization campaign for downtown LaBelle. Recognizing the need to rejuvenate our economic and historic commerce center, she said they are committed to recreating a vibrant, economically successful downtown while preserving its unique historic character and resources. Rather than serving as a map dot on a major corridor between two sides of the state, the purpose of this effort is to promote LaBelle’s Downtown Walking District, its cultural offerings and signi cance along the Caloosahatchee River as a destination for residents and visitors to enjoy. She said the group believes that the success of these revitalization efforts lie in the hands of the community and through local engagement and volunteerism they can bring renewal to our downtown, creating a destination that re ects our civic pride and heart of our community. If you would like to show your support for this effort, please join them on Thursday, May 8, at 6 p.m. at the City Commission meeting.

Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the bend? During the week of May 5-9, I would like to extend an invitation to celebrate and honor our man y deserving teachers. We all know how bus y things can get at the end of the school year tests, eld trips, paperwork, report cards and graduations. Most everyone is looking forward to a summer break lled with fun in the sun! With all of the hustle and bustle of daily life, it can be easy to forget the little but very important things like showing our thanks. If your child has had an awesome educational experience this year, then perhaps you will consider honoring his or her teacher(s) this week. Other than family and close friends, there are few people in a child's life that have more of a profound impact than teachers. School professionals have a great deal of in uence and responsibilities on a daily basis. Take into account how much time most children and teens spend with teachers. Generally, at least seven hours a day, ve days a wee k are spent at school under the supervision and guidance of educators. Many students spend even more time after school in activities with these same teachers. Aside from the amount of time that is actually spent with your child, take a moment to appreciate how much "extra" wor k a teacher often does after hours. Fantastic teachers don't just work their contracted hours. They come in early, stay late and take materials home. Many work in their classrooms during the summer too. A trul y outstanding teacher goes above and beyond every day just to make sure that your child receives the best education possible! Kudos to all of those dedicated teachers! Here's a fact. It doesn't have to cost money to show appreciation for a teacher. Sometimes a simple "thanks" is all a teacher needs to hear in order to feel respected and valued. Sending in a simple note or card o f appreciation can also make a teacher's day. A kind gesture can be worth its weight in gold! If you would prefer to buy a gift consider giving the teacher a basket of supplies for the classroom, some treats from a local bakery, a plant or bouquet of owers, a boo k from a favorite author, movie tickets, a nice fountain pen or a gift card to a restaurant. You can search the web for ideas on how to make homemade gifts too. Trust me. No matter how you choose to acknowledge your appreciation for a teacher it will be well received and cherished for many years to come. You've probably seen or heard the saying, "If you can read this thank a teacher!" Remember, it's never too late to express your gratitude to a great educator!
