Thursday, June 12, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 24 Burn ban liftedby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The county commissioners lifted the burn ban at their June 3 meeting, responding to the beginning of the summer rainy season. The ban was lifted by resolution, however in the next few weeks that ordinance is expected to be amended. Authority to put in place and lift a burn ban will be designated to the county administrator.County AdministratorThe board completed a very positive initial six-month evaluation for County Administrator Charles Chapman. From now on, his performance will be evaluated annually. Commissioner Janet Taylor’s only concern was that she felt the evaluating tools the questions they use for the evaluation should be re ned. Commissioner Michael Swindle agreed, saying they need to make their evaluation on their knowledge of his performance and ability. For his part, the county administrator thanked the board and noted that he will always have an open line of communication with the commissioners. In other business Clewiston mother and special needs activist, Stephanie Schneide r Busin, spoke at the May 13 Hendry County School Board meeting about the challenges students and families affected by autism face in Hendry County. Mrs. Busin cited the new autism prevalence rate released in March by the Center fo r Disease Control’s Autism and Developmental Monitoring Program as 1 child in 68 being identi ed as having an autism spectrum disorder. In an effort to illustrate the needs in Hendry County are very likely to be greater than what’s on paper, Mrs. Busin states, “In a district o f 7,000 students, like Hendry County, if we’re on par with this statistic, we should statistically have clos e to 103 students identi ed. We currently have 40, up from 27 at this time last year.” “While it is solely up to a parent or guardian to seek a referral for diagnosis for a child, not so coincidentally, CDC statistics indicat e children who are impoverished, and/or females, and/or minorities are less likely to receive a diagnosis and intervention services. Considering an approximate annual median household income of $36,000 and our diverse socio-economi c demographics, these are strong factors behind our numbers in Meet the needs of autistic children History on the moveSubmitted photos/ Waddy ThompsonOn June 3, residents watched as T. A. Youngblood & Sons Building Movers from Sanford moved the 1905 H. A. Rider Home and 1935 Law Of ce on trailers to their permanent home at the LaBelle Heritage Museum, 360 N. Bridge Street. There, they will become part of the museum's growing historical complex, along with the 1911 William Hardy Poole Dry Goods Emporium and Residence. Hendry County Sheriff's deputies, Florida Department of Transportation, Comcast Cable, FPL and CenturyLink all donated their services to make this a reality.

2 Caloosa Belle June 12, 2014Hendry County,” she continued. “The lack of medical and therapeutic resources are also a major concern. There is currently no doctor in Hendry County who diagnoses or treats autism spectrum disorders and there are no certi ed private prov iders of speech, occupational or behavioral therapy services for children with ASD. The treatments and services available on the coast are often out of reach, both nancially and geographically, for the majority of our families,” said Busin. Mrs. Busin expressed to the school board that the speech and occupational therapy services the school district provides are, in many circumstances, the only help and intervention many of these students will ever receive and urged the school board to support enhanced services like social skills lessons provided under speech and language services. She spoke of the need for cost effective programs like peer-to-peer mentoring in the middle and high schools that pair autism spectrum disorder students with nonASD peers who accompany them to class and provide additional academic and social support, improving their academic performance and decreasing instances of bullying due to social and behavioral challenges inherent to autism spectrum disorder. “I stand before you today asking for your support in getting these children the help they need and to offer support to you. I’ve been fortunate over the past three years to have had overwhelming support from the community in my quest to bring autism awareness and resources to Hendry County through autism awareness t-shirt sales. Funds raised in the past have purchased books for families and schools, provided trainings and training resources to Hendry County teachers,” said Busin. This year, I wanted to put funds directly into teachers’ hands so they are able to provide classroom resources for their students with autism because trainings can only take you so far without tangible resources to work with, so it is with great love and gratitude to the folks who purchased autism awareness shirts this year that I am able to present a $3,000 check to the Hendry County Public School Foundation in memory of one of Hendry County’s great champions of children, Ray Clinard, to be used for classroom mini-grants for teachers with autistic students. The board decided to donate two glass book cases in the Administrative Conference Room to the LaBelle Heritage Museum. The bookcases belonged to Judge H.A. Rider and lled with Florida Reports from 18471948. The museum just moved the judge’s of ce and home from their previous location on Lee Street to the museum’s new home on Bridge Street. The donation will free up space in the conference room and will also be a great addition to the museum. Also, a set of old brass keys to the Hendry County Jail were recently found in an old ling cabinet. They are also being donated to the museum. The next commission meeting will be J une 24 in LaBelle. There will be no county commission meeting on July 8. The regular July 22 meeting will be in LaBelle as usual. In August both commission meetings will be held in Clewiston. The regular August 12 commission meeting will be in Clewiston, as usual. However, the August 26 meeting will also take place in Clewiston due to the scheduling of the sector plan for a joint United States Sugar Corporation and Hilliard Brothers venture known as Sugar Hill.

Effective Thursday, June 5, locking operations at the W.P. Franklin Lock & Dam near Fort Myers and the St. Lucie Lock & Dam near Stuart are being conducted every two hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

"This is standard operating procedure whenever the lake falls below 12.5 feet" said Steve Dunham, Chief of the Corps' South Florida Operations Of ce. "We encourage boaters to be aware of the lake level and consider that drafts will continue to decrease if the lake drops more in coming weeks. The updated schedule means that lockages will occur at Franklin and St. Lucie at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m., and 7 p.m. Operations at the other three locks, Ortona, Moore Haven, and Port Mayaca, will continue on demand between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Should the lake drop below 11.5 feet, additional reductions in service will be necessary.

My dad was born and raised in Venus, FL, just about 15 miles north of Palmdale AKA, Fishing Eating Creek. He was reared during the Depression and knew what it was to wonder where the family of six children w ould be getting their next meal. In December, 1941, the day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he enlisted in the Marines. For three and a half years he personally witnessed the horrors of war in the South Paci c. In 1945 he married my mother and they settled in Ft. Myers and raised four children. Both of my parents had their own businesses and worked hard. While I have not always agreed with my dad about his viewpoints, one thing I have always been appreciative of was what he instilled in his children. Laziness and the "entitlement mentality" was unacceptable at 2268 South St.! That strong work ethic has never failed me or my siblings. My challenge to the fathers on this Father's Day weekend is to instill that same standard into your children. The following was written by a 21-yearold female who apparently grew up with a father like mine. Clearly she is viewing where we are in many areas of our country and is troubled. It's her future she's worried about and this is how she feels about the "social welfare-big government" state that she's being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion. From the Waco Tribune Herald, in Waco, TX, she titled her article "PUT ME IN CHARGE." "Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho-Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job. "Put me in charge of Medicaid. The rst thing I'd do is to get women birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job. Also, there is nothing the matter with a vasectomy for all of the volunteer fathers who don't support their children! "Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your "home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place. In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we nd for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low pro le tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good." "Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem. "If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices. "While you are on government subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a con ict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job. Not bad, huh? Sound harsh? Insensitive? Even "unchristian?" Please be reminded on the teaching from 2 Thessalonians 3:10: "If a man doesn't work, do not let him eat." Granted there are those who genuinely need help due to physical or mental limitations and the Scripture calls all believers to aid those who are incapable of caring for themselves. However, there is a signi cant difference between those who can't work and those who are too sorry and simply won't work. If our nation continues to slide in the downward position of "freebies for all" I shudder to imagine where we will be in ten years. Dad here's your chance! Stand up, be a man and be a role model of hard work, integrity, and God-honoring pride of being a real man by supporting your family. We have plenty of parasites that are being produced and multiplied. Dare to be different, dad! Do your job, love your family. Establish a role model of what is desperatel y needed in our country.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. This Father’s Day you can set the pattern, Dad! Four months ago I couldn't spell "Lebellian" and now I are one. Although I began working in LaBelle in September 2012 at Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church as Minister of Music and began a music studio on that site, I still commuted from Ft. Myers until late January this y ear 2014, when I came as Mrs. Jeff Perry. I was overwhelmed at the instant response in 2012 to the studio with a immediate rush of piano, voice, ute and guitar students. Since then we have added home school general music classes, disability, special need and handicap music therapy, and lessons for preschoolers and senior citizens. Coming is group guitar and group piano. I want to take a pause to say a great big thank you to our county and community for such a wonderful welcome. I came from w orking on Sanibel Island for 4 years, but w as formerly from Chicago for 31 years. Each week as I started my trek here in the community, I discovered new treasures. I was pleasantly surprised every week about LaBelle. I had bought a car here 2 years previously, and came and went to service my car, but had not delved into all the treasures and surprises that I now experience. I felt called here to Hendry county to enhance, lift and build Fine Arts and Private Music Education, along side working at Carlson as Minister of Music. People were instantly connecting to me, welcoming and helping me nd my way. I felt like I "came home" at 54 years old. I had been raised in an agriculture community in Washington state similar to LaBelle, but had forgotten the warmth, love and family feel a community can provide. I have been speechless at the help and support I've received, not only in the church, but in the community. I do not feel like an outsider or stranger. I love LaBelle! I love it that LaBelle contained the love of my life, Jeff Perry. This community has gotten behind our courtship, wedding and marriage to a mouth dropping level. In all my travels and experiences and transitions of life, I have NEVER felt the instant settling in warmth, help, and love that my LaBelle has offered to me. It has restored my faith in human kindness and community. Watch for my occasional articles keeping you posted on what's happening new in Fine Arts and private Music in Hendry County. July 28-Aug. 1 we are providing a Fine Arts camp for Hendry County. Call Carlson Church for more details. With sincere thanks, Hannah (Czoski) Perry Letter to the Editor June 1, 2014 FORT MYERS, Fla. Today, Governor Rick Scott signed the 2014-15 state budget, which includes $6.5 million for renovation projects at Edison State College, which will become Florida SouthWestern State College on July 1. "The funding for our renovation work means the science classes our students need will continue in an environment that helps them reach their educational and professional goals," said Dr. Jeff Allbritten, President, Edison State College, soon to be Florida SouthWestern State College. Most importantly, $5 million will support the complete renovation of Leonhardt Hall, a 47 year-old science and learning facility, the most heavily utilized science laborator y building across the college. The remaining $1.5 million will be dedicated to general maintenance for regular projects across the Lee Campus in Fort Myers. SouthWestern College to renovate

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Tractor Supply Co. is the newest business to take up residence here in LaBelle, and Store Manager Alisha Jewell said they aim to be a real part of the community. Located at 1840 W. SR 80, the 19,000 square feet store had its Grand Opening Saturday, June 7. They’ve already joined the Chamber of Commerce and are supporting local causes like the Caloosa Humane Society. Ms. Jewell, a six-year employee of Tractor Supply, worked her way up to her present position at various stores, including Bartow, Lake Wales, Wauchula and Clewiston. She exudes enthusiasm for the job like when she talks about the best part of the company. “No doubt about it,” she said, it’s our mission and values.” She beams about all aspects of their “amazing” customers mostly hard working people with ranches, farms and pets as well as her team. She takes pride in “great customer service” that she said keeps her team “always doing their best for the customer at right price.” Part of their regular service includes special ordering of parts and rain checks. They will also send products out for repair. She points out that the fun of the job is just part of everyday. Alisha personally hired all 13 original employes at the store and they are building a cohesive, outstanding team that also knows how to have fun important because the store has been really hopping since opening for business May 31 In addition to the staples of a store of this type, many customers may be surprised by the other products like seasonal items. Right now Tractor Supply is having its Country Summer Event Special offering items from picnic tables to ip ops. Find Power Plus Plan, private service plans for speci c items, exclusively at Tractor Supply. Come to Tractor Supply for things like dog food and even clothes like C.E. Schmidt jeans and boots, not just tractor supplies. You will also nd private label brands like Retrieve dog food, 4 Health dog food, Producers Pride, Ground Work lawn and garden chemicals, Job Smart tools and air compressors Alisha said her goal is just to work her hardest every day to help customers and her team to succeed every day a challenge to be sure because “no two days are the same in retail.” From the most expensive riding mower to the perfect pet food, Tractor Supply offers what you need, and if by chance they can’t help you, they’re just as happy to send you to another local store. They want to be a part of, and an asset to, the community. Tractor Supply is open seven days 8-8, except Sundays when they open at 9 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Call 863-674-1217.

The total amount of scholarships totaled close to $25,000! The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle is dedicated to our youth and awards annual scholarships to the top high school student candidates selected by the club’s scholarship committee. The scholarships are designed to recognize and support exceptional students graduating from LaBelle High School, who have distinguished themselves academically, as leaders in extracurricular activities and services to their communities. The scholarships consist of a cash award to be used towards the student’s tuition. A huge thanks goes to the community, because the funding to support these scholarships comes from the proceeds of the Kiwanis Thrift Store. Over the last few years, over $120,000 has been awarded to LaBelle High School students! The next time you clean out your closets, or have “leftovers” from a yard sale, please consider donating your items to the LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store so that scholarships can continue to support the local students! The LaBelle Kiwanis Thrift Store is located at: 155 S. Bridge Street in LaBelle. Several reading contests were held at LaBelle Middle School over the past few months. Students always enjoy some friendly competition and reading while competing is even better! During the second and third quarters of the school year a Reading Counts contest between classes in each grade took place. The teacher’s class in each grade that earned the most Reading Counts points was treated to a pizza lunch courtesy of the LMS PTO. Second quarter class winners were Mr. Holland’s 1st period (8th grade), Mrs. Narehood’s 1st period (7th grade), and Mrs. Romesser’s 5th period (6th grade). Not wanting to be outdone, during third quarter, a different set of teachers and students came out victorious. Classes that earned pizza lunches from the PTO were Mrs. Kidd’s 3rd period (8th grade), Mrs. Dillman’s 4th period (7th grade), and Mrs. Layton’s 4th period (6th grade). All throughout the second semester LMS held a Sunshine State Young Readers Awards Contest. Two students read all 15 middle grades books and passed their quiz for each book. They will receive gift cards and a book for all of their hard work. Congratulations to 7th graders Arleth Ortiz and Sara Cordova.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 2, 2014) – It took a village to move a playground when Community Cooperative donated equipment to Child Care of Southwest Florida. A spontaneous public-private partnership materialized to relocate no-longer-needed play structures from Community Cooperative in Fort Myers to CCSWFL’s new LaBelle early-education center, scheduled to open June 30. Employees from Waste Pro, a waste-removal service company, had volunteered to dismantle the equipment, and The Mitchell Family offered to transport it in a Bud Light semitrailer. When some of the pieces were unexpectedly too big for the truck, Sam Galloway Ford came to the rescue with a atbed truck and assistance from All Star Rentals. “Watching this effort unfold and seeing everyone so willing to help was wonderful,” said Community Cooperative Executive Of cer Tracey Galloway. “It was more of a challenge than we anticipated, but everyone w as determined to get the project done.” In January, Community Cooperative (then CCMI) closed its Montessori Preschool, and most of its 34 preschoolers transferred to Child Care of Southwest Florida’s P.A. Geraci Child Development Center, less than two miles away. The move eliminated some duplication of services within the Dunbar community and was consistent with the United Way philosophy of partner agencies collaborating on shared services. When Community Cooperative offered the unneeded equipment, CCSWFL’s new LaBelle center was the right place to rebuild the playground. “Our new LaBelle center, less than a mile from the current Children’s Garden of LaBelle location, is a larger facility with room for an expanded outdoor play area,” said Executive Director Beth Lobdell. “With the move, we expect to increase our enrollment by a dozen youngsters, so the new playground will be well used.” Since its creation in 1984, Community Cooperative has been providing emergency food outreach and resources to communities across Lee County, as well as partnering with agencies throughout Southwest Florida. Child Care of Southwest Florida, founded in 1967, works to strengthen and enhance the lives of children and their families at six accredited early-education centers in Lee and Hendry counties.

Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantLaBelle Woman’ Club members gathered all the sanitary kits for girls they have completed to take to the Ocala Woman’s Club for disbursal to young girls in need in Malawi, Africa. The kits will prevent monthly disruption in their studies so they can complete their education. Pictured from left: Sharyn Schlitter, Lori Hornick, Tina Noel, Lilly Hart, Lesly Rodriguez and Elvia Rodriguez. Because members of the LaBelle Woman’s Club care enough to work hard for others, numerous young women in Malawi, A frica, will have the opportunity to spend more time getting an education. In fact, sanitary kits constructed by these local ladies w ill make it possible for these girls to spend some 60 days a year in school than they otherwise could. The community opened its heart to the cause, providing over 1,100 bars of soap, 1,144 Ziploc Freezer Bags, 756 wash cloths, 847 shields, 895 liners, 105 bags and 443 pairs of panties all in just the last six months. Each kit includes a draw string bag, wash cloth, bar of hotel soap, eight absorbent annel pads and two moisture barrier shields to hold liners in place, a pair of panties size 1016 and a visual instruction sheet with a gallon size zip lock bag. Many women of the community have donated colorful materials, cottons and dark annels for the project. Women from the local club delivered all the items for Days for Girls kits to Ocala on Friday, June 6. The project isn’t over yet. More kits are still to be made and the group is having a Days for Girls sew day on June 17 to work on bags and liners. They have some “super sewers” who have knocked out the more dif cult shields, but could use a few more volunteers to help with the easier tasks. For more information on the project, go to DayforGirls.com. If you would like to help the LaBelle club complete its commitment, just call Tina at 863-674-1324 or email her at noel_tina@ hotmail.com.

To some, an ideal home sits atop a hill and has enough rooms to accommodate generations upon generations of family members. To others, a home small in stature but with views to die for is all a homeowner needs. While preferences may vary on the home itself, there are a few things buyers of all shapes and sizes prefer when shopping for the home of their dreams. Agreeable weather. Vacation home shoppers often prefer year-round warm weather so they know their respite from the cold is never too far away. For example, a locale such as Port St. Lucie, Florida boasts an average temperature of 73.7* F, providing the ideal getaway to snowbound men and women stuck in the throes of winter. Affordability. A dream home stays a dream for many people because of the misconception that it is beyond counties also offer and affordable cost-of-living vacationers will appreciate. Accessibility of activities. While an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is great, no one wants to escape to a place with nothing to do. When shopping for a place to buy or build your dream getaway, be sure Proximity to other hotspots. Even if you’re looking for a place to simply unwind, a dream home’s proximity to hotspots or other exotic locales never hurts. Port St. Lucie, for example, offers all a vacationer needs to and Orlando. Proximity to major airports. Unless you plan on living in your vacation home year-round, you’ll want the be as expensive.
