Gather at the river in Barron Park as the sun is going down. Fireworks begin about dusk. by Patty Brant Caloosa BelleHendry County Commissioners would not budge on relaxing county rules regarding sexual offenders. Felda resident Lorrie Campbell asked that the county ordinance match state rules, which would allow her boyfriend, a conv icted sex offender, to live in a house near a school bus stop in Felda. Commissioner Don Davis felt the county should “go along with the state” in its less restrictive ordinance on w here sexual offenders can live. Hendry County created a buffer around school bus stops, daycare centers and such. Also, sexual offenders cannot go to public shelters during an emergency, but must go to public areas of the sheriff’s of ce. County Attorney Mark Lapp looked at other counties’ retrictions and concluded that Hendry’s is “pretty strict.” Commissioner Karson Turner said the board needs to consider its rural communities and the fact that it’s hard for the sheriff to patrol outlying areas. They don’t want laxity at bus stops, he pointed out. He added that the county needs to know who the sexual offenders in residence are and where they are. Commissioner Davis countered that these residents have dif culty nding places where they are allowed to live. For his part, he felt the county’s ordinance should match the state. Commissioner Michael Swindle said he empathizes with the problem but “has an issue with him living near a bus stop.” Commissioner Janet Taylor noted that the county ordinance details would not allow sexual offenders to live anywhere in Harlem and or in Hookers Point. She said one gu y lives under bridge, another cannot live with his elderly parents in order to help them. Ordinances allow sexual predators to live inside the cit y limits of both LaBelle and Clewiston. According to Deputy Bonnie Weaver sexual offenders do have areas where they can live within Clewiston, LaBelle city limits and the Seminole Indian Reservation, There are currently 34 registered sexual offenders living in Hendry County. Of those, one is considered obsconded, three are under Department of Corrections supervision, No change in sexual offender ordinanceSee BOCC — Page 2 By Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Aaron Mace, 15, is just a step away from being LaBelle Boy Scout Troop 9’s next Eagle Scout. On June 14, Flag Day, he completed his Eagle project as members of American Legion Post 130 held their annual ag retirement ceremony. Aaron planned and coordinated a new burning pit for the post. Aaron decided on the burn pit because the post needed a permanent one. They had been using a rack made from a bed frame to burn old, worn ags no longer serviceable. Aaron’s pit is made of concrete block about 2.5 feet tall with a grate inside. Aaron took charge of his project, securing donations and workers to build it properly. Donors included Fortress Block, Ace Hardware, Gulf Coast Pavers, Mim’s Welding and Plant World. Randy Wallace laid the block and Frank Schauer cleared the area and did the groundwork and nal grading. His son is another Troop 9 Eagle Scout. In addition to the planning and execution of the plan, Aaron was also responsible for documenting the entire process – 430 hours from beginning to end. He rst began the project on April 5. This Mace close to being an Eagle Scout Submitted photo/ Tricia MaceAaron Mace at the American Legion Post 130's recent ag retirement ceremony.

Of this group eight victims are under 12 y ears of age; 16 under 16 years of age; ve between 16-18 years of age. It is unknown how may victims there are in the computer pornography case or their ages. It is possible for convicted sexual offenders to be released from the sexual offender category if certain criteria are met. Tallahassee funding Hendry County lobbyist Joe Spratt appeared to explain this year's Legislative Session. He said the legislature passed a $77.1 billion budget $2 million over its 2013-14 budget. The budget included some $500 million in tax cuts and $100 million in tax incentives. He said the state is investing funds in w ater quality, in particular the Indian River Lagoon and spring heads, and in affordable housing. He said small counties did well as the Legislature preserved revenue sharing as w ell as SCRAP and SCOP funding for roads. He said small counties will receive some $9 million in new program funding. Hendry County got money for Courthouse renovation, Helms Road and SR 78. Commissioner Turner thanked Mr. Spratt for the "amazing job" he did for Hendry County. County residents will be pleased to know that adequate money is available for mosquito control this year, according to County Engineer Shaner Parker. No changes are proposed for MSBU assemssments except Sky Valley MSBU, which is to be reduced from $195.58 to $175, since lane improvements have been completed. Murray Road MSBU assessments will be the previouly agreed to $800 per year. In other business: There will be no commission meeting J uly 8. The next meeting will be July 22, with w orkshop sessions on the 16th and 18th. The county staff will be looking at planning and building and land use codes and enfocement. A part time temporary assistant was approved for the Harlem Library. Commissioner issued a challenge to come up with a pilot program for 2015 that will get 13-18 y ear olds level ve readers to mentor level 1 readers at Harlem and Clewiston Libraries.

The hardest part, he said, was coordinating such a project. One of the biggest lessons he learned was responsibility. Troop 9 has been assisting the American Legion with various projects for years, including ceremonies at the Veterans Par k where they help lay the memorial bricks and Memorial Day services at Felda and the Fort Denaud Cemetery. Aaron said he took on this project because of the respect he has for this country's veterans, including both of his grandfathers. All that remains is for Aaron to complete the last touches on his project paperwor k and submit them to the review board next month. He expects their response some time in August. Aaron said he always knew he'd be an Eagle Scout one day, even as a young Cub Scout. At that time he didn't know ho w much time and effort it would take, but he does now.

The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties would like to remind residents and visitors that it is important to "Drain and Cover" this National Mosquito Control Awareness Week. Please take simple precautions to protect yourself, y our family and your neighbors from mosquito-borne illnesses which have received increased attention recently in Florida. "One way folks can help to prevent mosquito-borne illnesses is to follow the "Drain and Cover" method," said Pat Dobbins, A dministrator/Health Of cer for the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties. "Drain or remove water from any containers around your home, cover your skin with clothing and use mosquito repellent and cover doors and windows to keep mosquitoes from entering buildings." DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying: Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, ower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets' water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don't accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER skin with clothing or repellent: Clothing: Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. Repellent: Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house: Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios.

During the summer, children are at increased risk of transportation related injuries from pedestrian, bicycle, and motor vehicle crashes. FDOT offers these tips for making summer safer for everyone: Tips for motorists Slow down and obey all traf c laws, speed limits and traf c signals. Keep an eye out for children walking or bicycling in the street, especially w here there are no sidewalks. Be alert for children playing and for those who may dart into the street without looking for traf c. When backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage, watch for children walking, biking, skating or skateboarding. Tips for parents Be a good role model. Always buckle up, always wear a helmet when biking, and always follow pedestrian safety rules. Supervise young children when they are walking, biking or skating. Provide your children with bright clothing so motorists can easily see them. Make sure your child is properly buckled into the appropriate child safety seat in the back seat. Safety experts advise that all children under the age of 13 should ride in the back seat. Make sure your teen driver understands and obeys all state traf c laws. Tips for youngsters Always buckle up when riding in a car. Ride in the back seat, it's the safest place for young people. Always wear a helmet and follow traf c safety rules when riding your bike. Learn and practice safety rules for pedestrians. It's extremely important for you to use the sidewalk where available, look leftright-left when crossing the road, and always walk facing traf c. Always cross at crosswalks, obey all traf c signs and traf c lights. Teen drivers should avoid speeding and minimize distractions (texting, talking on cell phones, eating, adjusting the radio) while driving. Never overload your vehicle. Require everyone riding with you to use safety belts. Teen drivers should be good role models for younger brothers, sisters, and friends, and should help them learn and follow traf c safety rules. www.dot.state. .us School’s out Traf c Safety Tips Road Watch

A radio talk how host and a call-in listener w ere talking about Christianity in America. In that conversation heard by hundreds of thousands across the listening audience, the host, an avowed agonistic, stated the following: “Why do Christians think they had anything special to do with the founding of this country. Anybody who reads history books knows that Christianity was no more involved in America’s founding than any other religion.” Regretfully, many believe that. However, the truth is that our nation is rooted in the J udeo-Christian-Biblical ethic. Are we a Christian nation? There are two possible answers. 1) If being a “Christian nation” means that everyone is a Christian, then no, we are not a Christian nation. 2) If Christianity was overwhelmingly the faith of the majority of Founding Fathers, then yes, w e are a Christian nation. Biblical in uence is undeniably seen in our nation’s Founding Documents. Our ethics and moral codes were accepted as the rule for our social order, based on Biblical principles. America’s history is not timid about this fact. In fact, Christianity was involved in nearly every aspect of our nation’s beginnings. Columbus, in 1504, wrote his reason to discover a new land: “I was led of the Holy Spirit to carry the message of the Gospel to undiscovered lands.” The May ower Compact stated, “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” The Puritans, realizing the backslidden state of the Church of England, came to A merica for the stated purpose of showing how a nation could prosper it citizens lived under the laws of God. The Plymouth Charter says, “The Colony w as established to advance the enlargement of the Christian religion to the glory of God A lmighty.” Likewise, the Delaware Charter de nes its purpose with clarity: “To further propagate the Holy Gospel.” Moreover, the Virginia Charter instructs people to, “Propagate the Christian religion to such people who yet live in ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God.” Those living in Rhode Island perhaps w ould be shocked to nd these words in the Rhode Island Compact: “We submit our persons, lives, and estates unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” On July 4, 1776 Continental Congress signed the “Declaration of Independence” but rst called the signers to prayer and fasting. Pastors were, without doubt, incredibly in uential within the culture. For example, Rev. Frances Bellemy wrote our “Pledge of Allegiance.” Rev. Samuel Smith wrote “My Country ’tis of Thee.” Rev. John Leland wrote the introduction of the rst Amendment to the Constitution. Amazingly, prior to the Civil War, 90% of all of America’s College Presidents, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, William and Mary, and Columbia, were preachers of the Gospel intent to educate youth for Christ. Perhaps it is a little known fact, but still true, that Rev. John Harvard, Charlestown, MA (for whom Harvard was named) proclaimed, “The purpose of the University was that every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well the main ends of his life and studies: to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom as the foundation of all knowledge and learning, and see that the Lord only giveth wisdom. To let everyone seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek Christ Jesus as Lord and Master.” Harvard’s original seal, on campus today, states: “Truth for Christ and the Church.” Columbia University: “the chief things that are aimed in this college are to teach and gauge the children to know God and Jesus Christ and to love and serve Him in all sobriety.” American’s rst schoolbook, “New England Primer”, had the Lord’s Prayer on its cover. Since 1865, “In God We Trust” has been printed on every piece of our currency. The Legislature of New York, 1838: “This is a Christian nation. Ninety-nine hundredths, if not a larger proportion, of our whole population, believe in the general doctrines of the Christian religion.” Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court in 1892 declared in the court’s opinion the United States was a “Christian nation.” We have drifted far, far away from our original intent as a nation. History tell us that we were once great as a nation. It would behoove us to return to that which made us great in the beginning. But what are we to do? Can we really make any difference? I believe changes can come. First, we must pray. 2 Chronicles 7:14 gives this promise: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Einstein understood things about nature of matter, space & time. He also knew ethical behavior depends on existence of an inner moral strength that is xed and that right and wrong are never arbitrary. He said, “The real problem is in the hearts & minds of men. It is not a problem of physics but of ethics. It is to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man.” Second, we must work within the process. God never calls His people to be uncivilized, to speak in a demeaning way towards those in authority, or to be active in radical behavior such as burning down City Hall, of shooting the President, or actions that would blacken the eye of God or His church. It is appropriate, however, to learn what candidates stand for, be well-informed of voting records of political candidates and then to vote according to Biblical principles. Third, we must persevere. President Teddy Roosevelt is credited for the following: “Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood – the virtues that made America. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-atany-price, safetyrst instead of dutyrst, the love of soft living, and get-rich-quick theory of life.” May God Bless America, again.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80, across the street from City Hall. Our Heritage and Our Hope Les Morgan We know the deadly consequences of tobacco use in Hendry County and we encourage our students to never to start. Unfortunately, this advice is not as effective if the people who give it don’t back it up. It has been stated by countless youth in Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) chapter about faculty, staff, parents and visitors smoking or using tobacco near or on school grounds. Tobacco free schools are an important step to building a healthier future for all of us. That’s why it’s time for Hendry County School District to move forward with a 100 percent Comprehensive TobaccoFree Policy by working to approve the recommendations set forth by the Center’s for Disease Control (CDC). These policies create a safe and healthy environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors while sending a clear message about the dangers of tobacco use and that tobacco doesn’t belong in our schools or on our campuses. In the United States, nearly nine out of 10 smokers start by age 18. In Florida, more than 18,900 kids (under 18) become new cigarette smokers each year. Tobacco use initiation often leads to a lifetime of addiction, resulting in devastating diseases, and early death. In fact, one of three youth who continue to smoke will die early because of smoking. That’s why a clearer message needs to be sent. We can look at neighboring, Glades County School Distict and other surrounding counties as an example. They don’t allow tobacco-use on any School Distirct property during school or at any events held on school property and a plan to help adults quit tobacco and provide educational support to students has been outlined. The Hendry Tobacco-Free Partnership and SWAT want our schools to be 100 percent tobacco free – inside and out! Join us in taking a stand against tobacco in Hendry County.

The Florida Department of Health today announced that research grants in the amount of $1,600,000 each are being awarded to the H. Lee Mof tt Cancer Center and Research Institute and the University of Florida. This grant funding will be used to expand research into tobacco-related diseases, such as lung cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of all cancer-related deaths, and is the most common tobacco-related cancer. "Florida is creating collaborative research networks to accelerate progress in the care of patients with cancer and tobacco-related disease," said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. "These projects will move us closer to becoming the premier destination for cancer treatment, research and prevention." Funding for the awards comes from the J ames and Esther King Biomedical Research Program which supports initiatives addressing tobacco-related diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and pulmonary disease. The Department will issue a new funding opportunity announcement for the King program as well as the Bankhead-Coley Cancer Research Program prior to July 15. H. Lee Mof tt's research project will seek to detect lung cancer early, when it may be treated more successfully. The research focuses on improving the accuracy of cancer scanning using a type of x-ray scan called low-dose CT screening. Mof tt plans to translate the work of their research teams into improved computer software to analyze the scans and provide more accurate results. Mof tt will advance the quality of care and Florida's research infrastructure by sharing everything in this project -the screening methods, computer software programs, and education materials -with hospitals, univ ersities and research institutions in Florida. Mof tt plans to engage health care providers and the community to ensure that the people at high risk know that screening is a lifesaving choice. The University of Florida will use this new grant to expand an existing research network that includes nearly 40 percent of all Floridians through a network of 22 hospitals, 416 clinics, and more than 3,000 physicians. This project will seek to improve quality of care for tobacco-related diseases by testing new ways of providing care in real-world clinical settings. The project is signi cant because it will increase enrollment of vulnerable populations in research studies to better understand ways of improving health outcomes for everyone in Florida. The project will expand the existing research network, provide education for physicians on conducting research in real-world settings, and collaborate with the Florida Department of Health to reduce regulatory barriers to conducting large-scale research at many institutions. State Representative Marti Coley said, "Working to nd better treatments and a cure for tobacco-related diseases, such as lung cancer, is so important for the citizens of Florida. I want to express my congratulations to the research teams that have been awarded these critical grants and wish them great success." State Senator Eleanor Sobel said, "It is important for Florida to stay on the frontline of the effort to address all cancers and speci cally those tied to tobacco use. This grant funding from the James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program will assist these research institutions in their mission to nd cures and share that information with the rest of the state." Dr. Daniel Armstrong, Chair of the Biomedical Research Advisory Council said, "As the state strategic research priorities were being developed, the Biomedical Research Advisory Council recognized an opportunity to fund enduring infrastructure in the prevention, diagnosis and cure of tobaccorelated diseases. This infrastructure can bene t investigators across the state and help us realize advances to reduce cancer burden. The funded projects demonstrate desired collaboration across institutions, shared scienti c advisory boards, and meaningful ways to include input from research participants and community advisors. Importantly, these projects include speci c plans to share results and make infrastructure available to any researcher in Florida." "We applaud the state's continued commitment to funding cancer research and the effort to position Florida as the premier destination for cancer treatment and research," said Thomas Sellers, PhD, MPH, center director and executive vice president of Mof tt Cancer Center the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center based in Florida. "This grant will be used to improve the excellent research being conducted at Mof tt and the funding will enable greater collaboration among the network of research institutions across the state." University of Florida President Bernie Machen said, "This grant funding enables us to expand on the nationally-recognized research we have been conducting for several years. A key distinction of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Florida is to serve as a central source which connects resources, people and ideas that lead to increased collaboration and new discoveries." Dr. Myra M. Hurt, Senior Associate Dean for Research, Graduate and Undergraduate Programs at the Florida State University College of Medicine said, "We are pleased to collaborate on this grant with the University of Florida that will accelerate the sharing of information across the research community and lead to increased potential for better prevention technology and new treatments for patients." Stephanie Leeds, vice president for advocacy in the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) said, "We appreciate the strategic grant funding that the Florida Department of Health has awarded to these distinguished institutions. Cancers that develop from the use of tobacco affects so many Floridians and their families. It is critical that we remain relentless in our pursuit of better prevention methods, improved treatment and collaborative research throughout our state." Martha Bogdan, President and CEO for the American Lung Association in Florid a said, "Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer o f women, killing almost twice as many women as any other cancer. On average, less than half of all women diagnosed with lung cancer will be alive one year after their diagnosis. The American Lung Association in Florida applauds this investment of research by the James and Ester King Research Program and we remain committed to working toward a day when Florida families will be free from the pain and loss caused by tobacco-related illnesses." Dr. Charles E. Wood, Chair of the Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics at the University of Florida and the American Heart Association member on the Biomedical Research Advisory Council, said, "These awards provide critical resources that will allow for vibrant research on diseases that stem from tobacco use. We are particularly pleased by the new level of collaboration that is now made possible with these speci c projects." 1EZDRIVE.COMGuaranteed Credit Approval EZAuto Sales Chip Dorn Randy Hamilton863-675-1866 HERE’S MY CARD Keep the number of these locally owned businesses on hand for all of your service & shopping needs. 5 Caloosa Belle July 3, 2014 DOH awards grants to expand research into cancer and tobacco-related diseases by Pudge LehmanDaughter Suzy can always nd the funniest sayins'.

I used to think those TV cooks that took out a bowl for garbage scraps made another bowl to wash but turns out it's a real timesaver. My friend Pat Hashman gave me a recipe for weed killer containing white vinegar but I've temporarily missplaced it but in the olden days we used vinegar for lots of stuff. We used it diluted with water for a hair rinse (made it shiny) rashes, sunburn, clothes softener in the washer. Odor remover in the wash, washing windows and oors AND shining up dull pennies. This calls for a history lesson for you young whippersnappers: A penny is a small coin that you will observe older people bend over to pick up.....if they still can....I still can but it's not a pretty sight.

COES April Students of the Month The Florida Department of Health urges all residents and visitors to consider the health risks of using illegal synthetic drugs. Taken to achieve the high associated with drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine, these synthetic substitutes are life-threatening and addictive. Within the past week, up to 30 individuals in Alachua County became severely ill after using such substances. Synthetic marijuana, often known as “K2” or “Spice,” is one of the substances whose popularity is “alarmingly high,” according to the Of ce of National Drug Control Policy. Labels on Spice products often claim that they contain “natural” psycho-active material taken from a variety of plants. Spice products do contain dried plant material, but chemical analyses show their active ingredients are synthetic cannabinoid compounds. The adverse effects of synthetic marijuana use may include agitation, extreme nervousness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, a racing heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, tremors and seizures, hallucinations and dilated pupils. Spice may also raise blood pressure and cause reduced blood supply to the heart. In a few cases, it has been associated with heart attacks. Anyone experiencing an adverse reaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center as soon as possible by calling 1-800-222-1222. If there is a life-threatening situation call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room. Department of Health emphasizes risks of using illegal drugs TAMPA -It’s summertime and as the temperature increases so do the chances for thunderstorm and lightning activity. Next week is Lightning Safety Awareness Week and the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) reminds people to take steps to prevent lightning-related damage to their homes and businesses. “To truly protect your home or business and its contents, consider investing in a certi ed lightning protection system to reduce the risk of damage. Contact your local utility company to inquire about programs to provide and install these systems; many companies provide this service. If this is not available in your area, consult a licensed electrician to install the system,” Rochman said. Additional steps home and business owners can take to protect appliances and electronic devices from power surges caused by lightning strikes include: 1. Plug electronic devices (laptops, DVD players, etc.) into a surge protection device, not a power strip. Both allow you to connect multiple electronics to a power source; however, a power strip does not protect against a spike in electrical power. A surge protection device, however, protects devices from such spikes. 2. Connect telephone, cable and/or satellite TV and network lines to a surge protection device. 3. Check the packaging labels to be sure the surge protection device has been tested to UL 1449. 4. Purchase a surge protection device with a Joule rating of over 1,000. The Joule rating typically ranges from 200 up to several thousand. Remember, the higher the number the better. 5. Look for a surge protection device with a clamping voltage rating (voltage at which the protector will conduct the electricity to ground) between 330 v to 400 v. “Lightning is one of those severe weather events that doesn’t command as much attention but causes an estimated $1 billion a year in property damage. We must acknowledge lightning’s power and do what we can to protect our structures and the valuable belongings inside them from the effects of a strike,” Rochman said.

That’s where it starts at Dunkin Donuts. The LaBelle franchise opened for business Friday, June 27. From sandwich makers to nishers (who complete the signature donuts and bagels), Dunkin Donut’s’ 30 new employees spent over a week in training before a customer ever came through the door. Each employee is instructed in the company standards, timing for donuts, ringing up customers and problem solving the customer always comes rst! Store Manger Dawn Steedley said all the store’s varieties of donuts are big sellers, but glazed, chocolate frosted and Boston cream are the stars. Complete your meal with any of Dunkin Donuts’ varieties of sandwiches. Dunkin Donuts’ own blend of coffee brings customers back time and again. The brand is also available in grocery stores, but not exactly the same as at the original Dunkin Donuts shop, Ms. Steedley said. If you want the “real thing” you need to stop by the restaurant for a hot steamy cup. Specialty coffees, including swirl avors are always very popular. Dunkin Donuts entire menu is available all day so you can order your favorite breakfast sandwiches and PM sandwiches any time of the day or night. Dunkin Donuts is preferred by many coffee lovers because of its family orientation and competitive pricing. The restaurant seats 38 and is wiavailable. The franchise owner has stores in LaBelle, Clewiston, Immokalee, the Naples area and will soon add one in Lake Placid, for a total of 21 stores by 2015. The franchise is making its way inland from the West Coast. Located at the LaBelle Plaza at SR 80 and Lee Street, Dunkin Donuts opens at 5 a.m. Monday through Saturday; Sunday 6 a.m. and closes 10 p.m. (That could change, though, once they know what the customers want.) Don’t forget about catering and preordering; credit or cash, said Store Manager Dawn Steedley.
