The strategic intent focuses on making Hendry County government an agency that reviews its functions w ith performance measurements and community relevance in mind. Chapman states, “We are working to re-connect and understand our residents. It is our intent to change and become the most transparent, ef cient and community relevant by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At the May 8 city commission meeting, the board learned that some senior housing may be in the city’s future. City Director of Finance Ron Zimmerly said the Area Housing Commission will apply for money speci cally designated for senior housing in rural counties. It would be only one application for the entire county. Mr. Zimmerly noted that it could be shared between both sides of the county by building at Green Tree South in LaBelle and Green Tree East in Clewiston. The housing commission voted to submit an application for a grant and the LaBelle commission concurred 5-0.Utility billsThe city approved a plan that will allow utility charges to be stopped for bills that cannot be collected. The charges could be terminated for various reasons such as the bill is uncollectable, there is an error or it’s in the best interest of the city write it off. Presently someone is interested in purchasing several houses with utility bills in arrears, renovating and selling them, allowing them to become viable customers again. It will take two authorized city employees to stop the billing.Downtown RenovationFred Johnson, a member of the volunteer group working on downtown renovation, explained a plan to improve the city’s downtown area, not only saving old buildings but allowing LaBelle to “tell the story of this place” as a crossroads. He said the city needs a variety of businesses to make downtown a “destination” for locals and visitors alike. He said although many of the old buildings are gone, the basic physical structure remains, waiting for a “rebirth” to become the core o f the community again. The idea is to link a cohesive past and future, he said. Mayor Dave Lyons commented that the renovation is “a process” that will be ful lled through events, facilities, streetscapes and circulation with no local tax money being committed. Fourth of JulyThe board approved the idea of a kayak, canoe and paddle board race on the river for the Fourth of July 4. Senior housing may be on horizon LaBelle High School reveals top scholars LaBelle High School is very pleased to announce that LaBelle High School’s (LHS) Valedictorian and Salutatorian for the 2013-2 014 school year are Yoana Dominguez and Faith Sherrod!

2 Caloosa Belle May 15, 2014operation possible.” Hendry County is committed to hosting two more rounds of Community Values Workshops during the months of January through April in 2015 and 2016. The workshops will be held in community locations for the following areas: Harlem, Hooker’s Point, Felda, Flaghole, Montura, Pioneer, North LaBelle, Fort Denaud, Port LaBelle and Wheeler Estates. The results of the 2014 Values Workshops will be made available on the Hendry County website (www.hendry a.net) in the next few weeks. “It has been awesome to get to know the Hendry County residents through this process this year,” concludes Chapman. Submitted photoSweet to pic for RotaryRene Pratt, daughter of Harold Curtis, runs the store that bears the Curtis name. She shared with the LaBelle Rotary Club the history of the Curtis Honey Business. Pictured with Rene is Andy Higginbothum, President of the Rotary Club of LaBelle. The Harold P. Curtis Honey Co. store has been a xture near the Caloosahatchee River on N. Bridge Street since 1954. The family's hives can be found in the groves, in the pines, in the mangroves and along the beaches of South Florida. Rene explained the world is in the middle of another Colony Collapse Disorder episode. Since 2006, the phenomenon has wiped out an estimated 10 million hives nationally, a loss worth more than $2 billion to beekeepers. Scientists, at this point, can only offer theories. Too many pesticides, perhaps, or too many fungicides in the environment. Perhaps it's disease-bearing parasites infecting bees. It could be poor beekeeping practices that lead to malnutrition. It could be a combination of all of those things, or something undiscovered. Colony Collapse Disorder has been bad for the Curtis Honey Business and for Florida's other 3,600 beekeepers. It's also bad news for farmers who depend on bees to pollinate crops. About $15 billion in fruits, nuts and vegetables are at risk nationally, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Rene explained Africanized bees, are not killers, but "they're pretty mean bees" that don't tolerate trespassers, especially nervous ones. "If you're scared," she goes on, "they'll sense it. If one stings you, now don't pick at the stinger you'll just squeeze out more poison. Just brush it off" and run. You have been marked by bee pheromone. Other bees will smell it and come after you. The Curtis Honey Company has ve types of honey available for sale: Palmetto, Orange Blossom, Wild ower, Mangrove and Sea Grape.

When women are ful lling the role of caregiver to children, spouses and parents, they often forget to take care of themselves. Here are some key facts and information regarding women’s health. Heart Disease Heart disease is responsible for about 29% of deaths in women, according to the CDC. There are far too many w omen dying of heart disease in their 60s, when no one expects to die because that’s too young in this country. There are also w omen who are really ill for many years w ith heart disease which can include being out of breath or not being able to walk up one ight of stairs. Although more men die of heart disease than women, females tend to be under-diagnosed, often to the point that it’s too late to help them once the condition is discovered. Women can reduce their risk of heart disease by modifying their lifestyles to include well-balanced diets and exercise. The American Heart Association lists risk factors for heart disease as:  Increasing age  Smoking  High blood cholesterol  High blood pressure  Physical inactivity  Obesity and overweight  Diabetes Breast Cancer Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It is second to lung cancer as the leading cause of death for women. Experts say the fear of breast cancer can sometimes be exaggerated, stopping women from going to their doctors for screening, or pushing women to make rash decisions about mastectomy, when it may it may not be necessary. The American Cancer Society lists the following as risk factors for breast cancer:  Increasing age  Genes. Nearly 5% to 10% of breast cancer is linked to mutations in certain genes  Family history of the disease  Personal history of the disease  Race. White women have a slightly greater risk of getting breast cancer compared with African-American women. Yet African-Americans have a greater chance of dying from this disease.  Early onset of menstruation (before age 12) or menopause after age 55  Not having children  Too much alcohol  Poor diet  Obesity Stephen F. Sener, MD, president of the American Cancer Society, recommends controlling your weight, exercising, quitting smoking, and talking to your doctor about your risk and appropriate screening for breast cancer. He also says to keep risk factors in perspective. “Just because your mother didn’t have breast cancer, it does not mean you are immune to this problem,” says Sener. At the same time, it’s also important to note that some women who have one or more risk factors never get breast cancer. Osteoporosis Hunched backs, back pain, and frailty used to be things older women had to accept before doctors knew anything more about osteoporosis. Now, there are steps women and girls can take to avoid such problems. Osteoporosis threatens 44 million Americans, of which 68% are women, reports the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Osteoporosis is largely preventable. The behaviors that women develop in their childhood, in their adolescence, and in their early adult years really play a signi cant role in the development of the disease. That’s because bodies build up most of bone mass until age 30. Then new bone stops forming and the focus is then on maintenance of old bone. It is never too late to keep bones strong and avoid fractures. Your body will do what it can to repair bone damage, but you have to provide the tools for it, such as adequate calcium consumption and weight-bearing physical activity. Talk to your doctor about your possible risk of osteoporosis, and what you can do to prevent problems. Risk factors for osteoporosis include:  Increasing age  Small, thin-boned frame  Ethnicity. White and Asian women have the greatest risk.  Family history  Sex hormones.  Anorexia  Diet low in calcium and vitamin D  Sedentary lifestyle  Smoking  Excessive alcohol Depression Depression appears to affect more women than men. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that about 12 million women are affected by a depressive disorder each year compared to about 6 million men. Dorree Lynn, PhD, a psychologist and author of Getting Sane Without Going Crazy, says women need a connection with others in their lives. “They need that sustenance,” says Lynn. “If they don’t have it, they tend to get depressed.” Sometimes, hormonal changes can also trigger the condition, particularly after pregnancy (postpartum) or around menopause. Other risk factors for depression include:  Family history of depression  History of heart problems  Serious chronic illness  Marital problems  Substance abuse  Use of drugs that could trigger depression, such as medicines for high blood pressure or seizures  A stressful life event, such as job loss or death  Diseases that could trigger depression, such as anemia and thyroid disease  Recent serious illness or surgery  Childhood history of physical or sexual abuse  Being a worrier or being overly anxious  Having an eating disorder or an anxiety disorder To help reduce risk of depression, nd reasons to get up in the morning. Things such as work, community, love, pets, and volunteering can be good reasons. May is Women’s Health Month 2014 is proving to be an exciting year for the City of LaBelle. We have made great strides in attracting new businesses and seeking opportunities that will continue to promote our City as we move forward. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the projects that are going on as well as some of our accomplishments. I am sure you all have noticed the new construction of Tractor Supply happening on the west side of the City. With a store size of approximately 20,000 square feet, this project brings a major national retailer to our City along with opportunities for employment. Approximately 15 to 20 jobs will be added to the local economy. Tractor Supply Company is the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States and we welcome their presence to our community. In addition to Tractor Supply, the USave building is being converted into a series of commercial spaces that will offer retail opportunities. Approximately twothirds of the existing building is being retained as a larger commercial space and the remaining onethird will be divided into smaller spaces available for lease. With the proposed new landscaping and building faade, this project will serve as a center of attraction for LaBelle. We are currently seeking additional grant money to be used to connect the two boat wharfs on each side of the bridge. We have submitted a third application to the Florida Boaters Improvement Program for almost $400,000 to make the connection. The City is now able to accept online payments for utility bills! Customers wishing to pay online are encouraged to go to the City’s website at www.citylabelle. com, click on Pay Utilities and follow the instructions for payment.

Inspired by Florida Kiwanis Governor Matthew Cantrall’s Five Steps to Excellence, Kiw anis clubs throughout the state are doing incredible work to address the goals under Y oung Child Priority One, including advocating for and supporting their local Healthy Families Florida programs. Healthy Families and Kiwanis is a natural partnership because both share a common mission to improve the lives of Florida’s most vulnerable children by parent education and support.In scal year 2012-2013, over 49,200 Florida children, almost half of them under the age of ve, were abused and neglected at the hands of their caregivers. An average 135 children are abused and neglected every day and an average of two children die every w eek at the hands of their abusers. These tragic statistics are heartbreaking reminders of why Kiwanis’ partnership with Healthy Families Florida is so important. Healthy Families Florida is an evidence-based home v isiting program proven to prevent child abuse and neglect before it ever happens. Here are some ways Kiwanis Clubs are partnering with Healthy Families Florida:  Participated in Children’s Week that is held in Tallahassee during April every year  Donating diapers Help Kiwanis First Lady Cheryl Cantrall reach her Florida Kiwanis Diaper Dump Project goal of 750,000 by Mother’s Day 2014 and continue to donate throughout the year  Donating educational DVDs, children’s books and home safety items such as outlet plugs and door alarms  Donating Pak N Plays to promote safe sleep practices Unsafe sleep is a leading cause of infant death in Florida  Providing monetary grants  Volunteering to help with graduation ceremonies, parent support groups and/or community events  Serving on local Healthy Families Florida Advisory Boards Together, we can break the cycle of abuse and neglect and ensure that every child has the opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential. For more information on Healthy Families Florida, visit www.healthyfamilies a.org, or contact the Healthy Families Program at the Florida Department o f Health in Hendry and Glades Counties at (863) 674-4041 xt.116 Destruction that can be caused by ooding, extreme weather and hurricanes can wreak havoc on the lives of humans and pets alike. It’s important for “pet parents” in all parts of the country to be prepared to act in the face of a disaster—and that includes having an emergency plan in place for your pets. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) recognized May 8 as National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day. The link below will direct you to the FEMA website and will give you information about preparing your pet for a disaster. http://www.fema. gov/media-library/assets/videos/75356http:/ www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/ videos/75356 Please take this opportunity to learn more about the ways you can keep your furry friends safe in an emergency. Here are a few easy steps you can take:  Ensure your pet is wearing a collar with your current contact information. Because you may be mobile in a crisis, be sure to include your cell phone number on your pet’s identi cation tag.  Create a basic disaster kit with enough dry food and water for each animal to last at least ve days. Medications, medical records and vaccination records stored in a waterproof container will prove helpful, as will garbage bags to collect pet waste. Don’t forget a photo of your pet!  Have a Plan. Your “all-family” plan needs to include how you will transport your animals in an evacuation, possible routes you will take and your destination or sheltering options. Have sturdy leashes, harnesses and carriers you can use to transport animals safely in an emergency.  Stay Informed. Keep an eye on the weather, follow a projected storm’s path and don’t get caught unprepared. Staying informed also means knowing which shelters house both people and pets, monitoring possible road closures and having alternate travel plans.  Know Your Neighbors. It’s best to form a relationship with your neighbors well in advance of a disaster situation. Develop phone list and determine who is home and when. If a disaster occurs while you’re at work, your neighbor may be the only one who can reach your pets.  Vaccinate and Microchip. If you’re ever required to shelter your pets, you’ll want them protected against disease. And the single most important piece of advice we can offer is to microchip your pets. It is truly their ticket home.

Are you attributing the sharp, piercing pain that shoots through your w rist and up your arm as passing cramps? More than likely, you have carpal tunnel syndrome, a painful and progressive condition caused by compression of a key nerve in the w rist, the Median nerve. Carpal tunnel is a medical condition in which the Median nerve, running from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist. The result may be pain, weakness or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. Although many associate carpal tunnel syndrome with hours spent working on a computer keyboard, carpal tunnel can actually result from a variety of other job tasks, w here the motions of your hands and wrists are stressed. A few examples of these include using power tools, participating in heavy assembly line work, sewing, etc. Carpal tunnel symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent burning, tingling or itching numbness in the palm of the hands and ngers, especially around the thumb and the index nger and middle ngers. The dominant hand is usually affected rst and produces the most severe pain. Women are three times more likely to develop carpal tunnel than men, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Conditions such as thyroid problems, diabetes, obesity and rheumatoid arthritis can increase the risk of this disorder. It is important to seek early diagnosis and treatment to avoid permanent damage of the Median nerve. A physician can examine the hands, arms, shoulder and neck to determine if a patient’s complaints are related to daily activities or an underlying disorder such as carpal tunnel syndrome. The physician can also use speci c tests to try to produce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Sometimes, it may be necessary for the physician to con rm the diagnosis by performing other tests that use electrical activity (EMG). In special circumstances, various drugs can ease the pain and swelling associated with this condition. When therapy, exercise, and drugs do not alleviate the symptoms, surgery may be recommended. With tiny cutting tools, the surgeon would make a small incision at the wrist and release the compression on the Median nerve by gently transecting the transverse carpal ligament. The small incisions are closed with stitches. When a patient undergoes carpal tunnel surgery, he/she usually goes home on the same day as the surgery and can expect a quick recovery period. The pain and numbness may go away right after surgery, or it may take several weeks. If you have any symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, please seek an evaluation from a physician. The treatment is quick and successful. For additional information regarding carpal tunnel syndrome, call 863983-5026 or 863-675-2356. Don’t ignore Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Looking for a fun, easy-going place with great food? Two Peas Cafe, owned and operated by two of the best known, most experienced restaurant names in LaBelle. Debbie Burchard Klemmer and Vicki Reynolds “grew up” together in the restaurant business, forming a strong friendship along the way. It was LaBelle’s legendary Ella Burchard, who dubbed them “Two Peas in a Pod” because they were so close they even got into trouble together. After being so close for 40 years, the two nally decided to go into business together. Vicki woke up with the clear idea for Two Peas one morning last year. She had planned to move to Texas, but the clarity of her idea changed her mind. She talked to Debbie and soon the concept took shape. As roadblocks presented themselves, help seemed to come from everywhere. One woman purchased Fiestaware for the restaurant and a hood system was donated. Volunteers were painting, putting up shelves and putting in equipment. So much support was coming in from family, friends and church friends that they knew Two Peas w ould be a success. They opened their Two Peas Cafe with just 24 seats last summer and within six months expanded to 70 with the addition of the “Garden Room.” Two Peas opened their doors with just four employees. Now there are ten. The restaurant is a huge success, but not w ithout a lot of work. It only takes 12-13 hour days full of hands on labor to keep it going! Last Thanksgiving they had 191 orders for pies. Debbie cooked all night to have them ready for customers. Debbie continues to delight taste buds with Granny Ella’s pies after adding her own twist to her grandmother’s pie recipe. The ladies offer great LaBelle favorites like fried green tomatoes and what they call the “Original Burger” topped with slaw delicious avors LaBelle folks have cherished over the years with a bit of twist. Debbie is also the homemade soup maker. Vicki specializes in cakes fresh coconut cake, chocolate coconut and pineapple coconut cake, along with carrot cake, red velvet cheesecake and hummingbird cake. Most of the time you’ll nd Debbie in the kitchen while Vicki caters to the customers. Both women agree that they’re fortunate to have the employees they do and want them to feel good about what they do and “take ownership” of their jobs. Breakfast and lunch is served Tuesday through Saturday Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look for the hot lunch specials and soup; Saturdays are so busy they serve breakfast and the regular lunch menu only. Open 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m., breakfast is served till 11 a.m.; lunch from 11-2. They close for Sundays and also on Mondays to thoroughly clean the place. Customer favorites include their chicken salad, club sandwich, the Original Burger and Hoppin’ John. For dessert it’s the coconut cream pie, 10-1. The ladies say they cater to locals they love their Snowbird friends and customers but, in true small town fashion, they rely on the locals for their year round business. They believe in the community circle of support and do all they can to shop locally for supplies, ingredients and other needs. Employees even rotate wearing T-shirts to promote local businesses. Like so many of LaBelle’s businesses, Two Peas participates in fundraisers for the schools and nonpro ts. Two Peas Cafe is so popular that there is often a waiting list to get inside, but the y don’t take reservations. They do take MasterCard, Visa and Discover for orders over $10. You can like them on Facebook (along with 1,100 other followers) and see their daily specials. Unable to come sit in their clean, cheerful restaurant? Two Peas does a lot of take out. Call 863-675-2891 to have your order read y for you to pick up. Two Peas is located at 870 W. Hickpochee Ave. Ste. 500. 8 Caloosa Belle May 15, 2014 Two Peas Cafe gives you a taste of old LaBelle Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantDebbie Burchard Klemmer and Vicki Reynolds are ready to take your order at Two Peas Cafe.

Submitted photo/ Joe ThomasHistoric steam engine moved to LaBelle wharfCity of LaBelle crews moved the E. C. Warren rotary steam engine from its former location at LaBelle Heritage Museum’s 150 South Lee Street site to the LaBelle Wharf across from Barron Library on May 5 as part of the LaBelle Heritage Museum relocation to the Downtown LaBelle Historic District. The engine was built by E. C. Warren in 1938 based on earlier patents awarded to world-famous electrical and mechanical engineer Nikola Tesla, who was belatedly acknowledged as the inventor of wireless radio telephony shortly before his death in 1943. It replaced the 500 HP reciprocating steam engines originally installed in the 1917 Herreshoff Manufacturing Company commuter yacht Navette. The yacht was built for renowned nancier J. P. “Jack” Morgan to enable him to comfortably commute from his Long Island estate to his Wall Street of ce, when Edward C. Warren purchased the sleek shallowdraft 114 ft. vessel some years after Morgan’s death. Warren and his family moved to the LaBelle area in the early 1950s. Plans call for the construction of a shelter for the engine, similar to the colorful riverfront gazebo shown in the background, with a plaque highlighting the history of the Navette and its rotary steam engines that directs interested visitors to LaBelle Heritage Museum at 150 North Bridge Street to view the original Herreshoff plans for the Navette, Warren’s 1938 plans for the rotary steam engine, a model of the Navette as it once looked and other memorabilia from the Navette, and additional information on E. C. Warren and the Warren family as well as learning more about Nikola Tesla.
