Thursday, July 17, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 29 Dollar General grand opening GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (July 14, 2014) – Dollar General will celebrate the opening of its new Dollar General Market location at 50 N. Bridge Street, Suite 500 in LaBelle this Saturday, July, 19 at 8 a.m. with free prizes and special deals. Dollar General Market will offer LaBelle residents a convenient new place to shop for groceries and everyday essentials at low prices. Additionally, the rst 100 adult shoppers at the store will receive a $10 Dollar General gift card and the rst 200 shoppers will receive a Dollar General tote bag, among other giveaways. “Dollar General is committed to delivering a pleasant shopping experience that includes a convenient location, a wide assortment of merchandise and great prices on quality products,” said Dan Nieser, Dollar General’s senior vice president of real estate and store development. “We hope our LaBelle customers will enjoy shopping at Dollar General’s new DG Market locaby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The community is invited to support women and children victims in a very important way this Saturday. Bears & Barbecue is nally happening at Barron Park July 19 from noon till 6 p.m. This initial event will raise money to complete the new women’s shelter by Abuse Treatment and Counseling, Inc. (ACT). Just last year ACT purchased a facility in LaBelle to shelter women and children temporarily. It’s been several years since LaBelle had such a shelter. ACT is pleased with the site, but the building needs a lot of renovation. Hopefully, this fundraiser will go a long way toward putting it in order so abuse victims can be served. Groups from in and outside of LaBelle are coming together to make this happen. Entertainment Music, music, music! Charlie Souza, bass guitarist with the Eyewitness Band, who has played with Rock ‘n Roll greats including Tom Petty and Gregg Allman and many others. Blues Locomotive from LeHigh will be playing the blues along with some classic and southern rock. Country Singer Jack Michaels will ensure there’s something for everyone on stage. Bikers will be out en force for a huge bike show and poker run with Cruisin’ with Katie. Can’t get enough great machines? How about ‘Yeti’, the Monster truck rides and airboart rides? Check out the Savage 4x4 trucks and jeeps as well. Barbecue The main event barbecue will be an all day affair. The barbecuers themselves will start their preparations on Friday and remain in the park all night. Perfect barbecue takes lots of time as well as skill. Twelve barbecue contestants from professionals to backyard chefs will be going all ou t for bragging rights. Five judges will decide the winners in fou r categories, for a total of 20 judges, including Charlie Souza (from Eyewitness Band doing double duty) two Minnesota Twins baseball players and Florida Rep. for District 80 Mat t Hudson. ACT gets the money from the sale of barbecue armbands: $10 adults, $5 kids. Armbands are also only $5 if you bring a teddy bear fo r law enforcement to distribute to kids in tough situations. In addition to sampling the contestants’ barbecue, you can also look forward to grea t tastes from lots of vendors of Mexican food, fried green tomatoes, corn etc. even a BBQ sundae (meal in a cup)! Some 60 vendors will offer all kinds of interesting things and there will be face painting and bouncehouses for the kids. Bears & Barbecue bene t Saturday by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle LaBelle residents can celebrate a victory. After years of complaining about the city water, the ribbon was nally cut on the new state-of-the-art water treatment plant on July 10. The City of LaBelle celebrated the fruition of its largest public works tours and a luncheon on site. USDA Rural Development State Director Richard Machek has been to LaBelle before. He has come to present substantial checks to help nance the city’s new wastewater plant as well as the new water treatment plant. In fact, Mr. Machek has a personal tie to LaBelle. His grandparents were married on the Courthouse lawn in the 1930s and his daughter was also married there. According to Mr. Machek, “LaBelle should be proud of the foresight and efforts of its leaders to ensure clean, safe drinking water is available to the current and future residents and businesses of this community,” he said. “USDA Rural Development is proud to play a role in this important project.” Mr. Macheck gave LaBelle a pat on the back, saying that the city persevered in this “great project” for the future of LaBelle. In fact, the project survived four mayors: Mayors Sheri Craichy, Randy Bengston, Paul Puletti and Dave Lyons. Rural Development provided over $20 million in funding: $13,029,000 in loans and $7,356,900 in grants.

2 Caloosa Belle July 17, 2014gan January 2013. Also from Rural Development Regional Director Michael Botelo and A da Rivera Area Specialist were on hand. South Florida Water Management Intergovernmental Representative Phil Flood said the project is “central to the future of the city” and will help the city grow business. The site includes the 1.5 mgd (million gallons per day) reverse osmosis plant, three wells (including one deep injection w ell), a ground storage tank, high-service pump stations and transmission and distribution piping. Raw water is pumped from the Lower Hawthorne Aquifer and forced at 150 psi through tiny holes in reverse osmosis lters. The water is treated with chemicals and stored in tanks for use. A special aerator (or degassi er) disburses any sulfer smell. A lot of the functioning technology is actually located underground, including the chlorine contact chamber and electric conduit. Plant Supervisor Joseph E. Thomas is the man in charge at the facility. He has 17 y ears of experience in water treatment. He started at LaBelle in 1997, and left in 2002 to work for Lee County utilities, returning to LaBelle in 2009. The entire facility is run by three employees including Mr. Thomas: Franklin Calhoun, with ten-years in water treatment and Marcos Benavidez, 7 years. Mr. Thomas said the 1.5 gallon per day (gpd) plant is permitted by South Florida W ater Management for just under one million gpd the extra water is not needed at this point and that permit is more expensive. However, if demand rises the capability is available to meet it. When more ca p acit y is needed, the p lant is easily expandable up to 33 percent by simply adding more “skids.” He is very happy with the site including the spacious of ce (an upgrade from the “closet” used in the old plant), the deeper wells, increased capacity and the advanced technology. A manual back up ensures that, if something unforeseen did happen and the faciltiy’s computers went down, employees could continue to run the plant. Using generators for both the plant and wells, they could even run the plant without Florida Power & Light, if necessary. The old plant, with a capacity of just under a million gallons per day, will remain in use as a back up. The new facility is located off SR 29 south of LaBelle. Construction began in early 2013 and the new plant has actually been making water since June 23. It has a 70 percent recovery rate (that is,70 percent of the raw water pumped from the ground actually goes out to water customers; 20-25 percent is waste that is injected deep into the ground. When it came time to cut the ribbon, Mayor Dave Lyons noted that the opening of the new plant was a great day in the history of the City of LaBelle. The project began ten years ago. Former Mayor Paul Puletti pointed out some of the dif culties the city encountered along the way: First the city had to iron out service areas with Hendry County, then funding was turned down twice and then the economy tanked. It’s been a long haul, but everyone was proud that it’s nally complete. A special thanks went to the Paul family, who hel p ed the cit y p urchase the land. tion.” Dollar General Market stores offer convenience and value to customers.

It was a “Meeting on HIV in the Southern United States. The Department of Labor and the Department of Education will join forces with other Federal agencies to develop a program to educate and train HIV positive people in order to get them back into the workforce. Pilot programs will begin in rural communities. In years past, each of these Federal Programs would operate on its own but now it is a collaborated effort to help rural areas to continue to get scal support for the education, treatment and prevention of HIV in the Southern United States. Mr. Bobo was invited to attend this meeting because of the stellar successes of the local Ryan White Part-C Program at the Florida Department of Health in Hendry County.

P eace Corps also Releases N ew Public Service Ann ouncement from President Obama Calling on A mericans to ServeWASHINGTON, D.C., July 15, 2014 – Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet today announced sweeping changes to the agency’s application process that will make applying to the Peace Corps simpler, faster and more personalized than ever before. Under this new recruitment initiative, applicants will now be able to choose their country of service and apply to speci c programs, and do so through a new, shorter application. As part of today’s announcement, Peace Corps also released a new video from President Obama calling on Americans to serve. It can be viewed here. “Today our world is smaller and more interconnected than ever before,” said President Obama in the new public service announcement. “And it presents us with an extraordinary opportunity: to connect with people in some of the most remote corners of the globe and show them that America is paying attention, that we care, and that we’re here to help. That’s what the Peace Corps is all about.” “More than 50 years after its founding, the Peace Corps is revitalizing its recruitment and outreach to eld a volunteer force that represents the best and brightest the country has to offer,” Director Hessler-Radelet (RPCV Western Samoa 1981-83) said. “A modernized, exible application and placement system will help Peace Corps recruit Americans who are not just interested in imagining a better world, but rolling up their sleeves and doing something about it.” The key recruitment reforms include: Peace Corps applicants can now choose the programs and countries they want to apply to – selecting the path that best ts their personal and professional goals. Applicants can apply to between one and three speci c programs at a time, or they can choose to apply for service wherever they are needed most. The Peace Corps website now lists all open programs by country, work area and departure date, so applicants can browse service opportunities. A new, shorter application is now available on the Peace Corps website that can be completed in less than one hour. What used to be more than 60 printed pages that took more than eight hours to complete is now a short online application that focuses solely but rigorously on the most relevant information to help the agency select the best candidates. Each open Peace Corps position no w has clearly identi ed Apply By and Know B y deadlines, so applicants know when the y can expect to receive an invitation to serve. If they apply on time, they’ll know if the y were selected on time – just like applying to college or a job. These deadlines give applicants more certainty than ever and help them plan for the future. “With the tools, technologies and opportunities of the 21st century, the Peace Corps is giving Americans of all backgrounds the freedom to re-imagine their future and redene their mark on the world,” Hessler-Radelet said. “I believe these changes will help re-ignite the passion of Peace Corps’ earl y days and that more Americans will seize the opportunity to make a difference across the world and here at home.” Hessler-Radelet, who was sworn in as the agency’s 19th director in June and comes from a four-generation Peace Corps family, has led an extensive reform effort since joining the agency in 2010. In addition to the recruitment reforms announced today, the Peace Corps has dramatically improved the quality of support it provides to volunteers, strategically targeted its resources and country presence to maximize impact, and streamlined operations to create a culture o f innovation and excellence. About the Peace Corps: As the preeminent international service organization o f the United States, the Peace Corps sends Americans abroad to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world. Peace Corps volunteers work at the grassroots level with local governments, schools, communities, small businesses and entrepreneurs to develop sustainable solutions that address challenges in education, health, economic development, agriculture, environment and youth development. When they return home, volunteers bring their knowledge and experiences – and a global outlook – bac k to the United States that enriches the lives o f those around them. President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps in 1961 to foster a better understanding among Americans and people of other countries. Since then, more than 215,000 Americans of all ages have served in 139 countries worldwide. Visit www.peacecorps.gov to learn more. Changes to Peace Corps application and selection process The best defense is prevention. Here are some prevention tips: Drink more uids (nonalcoholic),  regardless of your activity level. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. Warning: If your healthcare provider generally limits the amount of uid you drink or has you on water pills, ask them how much you should drink while the weather is hot. Don’t drink liquids that contain  alcohol or large amounts of sugar– these actually cause you to lose more body uid. Also, avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps. Stay indoors and, if at all possible,  stay in an air-conditioned place. If your home does not have air conditioning, go to the grocery store or public library–even a few hours spent in air conditioning can help your body stay cooler when you go back into the heat. Electric fans may provide com fort, but when the temperature is in the high 90s, fans will not prevent heat-related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath, or moving to an airconditioned place is a much better way to cool off. Wear lightweight, light-colored,  loosetting clothing. NEVER leave anyone (or a pet) in  a closed, parked vehicle. Although any one at any time can  suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others. Check regularly on: Infants and young children  People aged 65 or older  People who have a mental illness  Those who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure Visit “at-risk” adults at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching. If you must be out in the heat: Limit your outdoor activity to  morning and evening hours. Cut down on exercise in the hot test parts of the day. When you exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, nonalcoholic uids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat. Warning: If you are on a low-salt diet, talk with your healthcare provider before drinking a sports beverage. Try to rest often in shady areas.  Protect yourself from the sun by  wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also keeps you cooler) and sunglasses and by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher (the most effective products say “broad spectrum” or “UVA/UVB protection” on their labels).

THE 4-DAY SUPER SALE Join us on 5 Caloosa Belle July 17, 2014 by Pat DobbinsJust a few months ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported local transmission of chikungunya in Saint Martin. Local transmission means that mosquitoes in the area have been infected with chikungunya and are spreading it to people. This is the rst time that local transmission of chikungunya has been reported in the Americas. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local transmission of chikungunya is now being reported in other countries in the Caribbean. Since the end of June, 2014, the following Caribbean countries have reported cases of chikungunya: Anguilla, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Dominican Republic, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin (French), Saint V incent and the Grenadines, Saint Maarten (Dutch), Turks and Caicos Islands, US Virgin Islands The CDC recommends that anyone traveling to the Caribbean should protect themselves from mosquito bites. Some people may be more likely to get chikungunya, or have severe disease, and be at higher risk for other reasons. Travelers in high-risk groups should discuss their travel plans with their health care provider. These groups include the following: People who have arthritis People with serious underlying medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or diabetes) People older than 65 Women who are late in their pregnancies, because of the risk to babies born at the time their mother is sick Long-term travelers, including missionaries and humanitarian aid workers and people visiting friends and relatives People who might have dif culty avoiding mosquito bites, such as those planning to spend a lot of time outdoors or staying in rooms without window screens or air conditioning. Chikungunya is an illness caused by a virus that spreads through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of chikungunya are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash. Chikungunya disease rarely results in death, but the symptoms can be severe and disabling. Most people who get sick feel better within a week. In some people, the joint pain may last for months or years. Travelers who go to these islands in the Caribbean are at risk of getting chikungunya. In addition, travelers to Africa, Asia, and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Paci c are also at risk, as the virus is present in many of these areas. The mosquito that carries chikungunya virus can bite during the day and night, both indoors and outdoors, and often lives around buildings in urban areas. There is currently no vaccine or medicine to prevent chikungunya. The only way to prevent chikungunya is to prevent mosquito bites. Preventing bites can be dif cult, but it is important as you can get sick after just one bite. Follow these steps to reduce the chances that you will be bitten by mosquitoes during your trip. Prevent mosquito bites: Cover exposed skin by wearing longsleeved shirts, long pants, and hats. Use an appropriate insect repellent as directed. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. Use products with the following active ingredients: DEET (Products containing DEET include Off!, Cutter, Sawyer, and Ultrathon) Picaridin (Cutter Advanced, Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus, and Autan [outside the US]) Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) (Repel and Off! Botanicals) IR3535 (Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition and SkinSmart) Always follow product directions and reapply as directed: If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen rst and insect repellent second. Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, and mouth. Stay and sleep in screened or air conditioned rooms. Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. If you feel sick and think you may have chikungunya: Talk to a health care provider if you feel seriously ill, especially if you have a fever. Tell them about any of your travels. Get lots of rest, and drink plenty of liquids. Avoid spreading the disease by preventing more mosquito bites. Chikenhunya Fever What is the current situation? Pat Dobbins by Pat DobbinsOne way to help prevent a Naegleria fowleri infection due to swimming is to refrain from water-related activities in warm freshwater. Your actions can help reduce the risk of Naegleria fowleri infection by limiting the amount of water that goes up your nose. These actions could include: Hold your nose shut, use nose clips, or keep your head above water when taking part in water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater. Avoid putting your head under the water in hot springs and other untreated thermal waters. -Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature. Avoid digging in, or stirring up, the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas. NOTE ~ You cannot get infected from drinking water contaminated with Naegleria. You can only be infected when contaminated water goes up into your nose. Each year, educational materials are shared with the community about Naegleria fowleri infection to help raise awareness and assist swimmers in making informed choices about their recreational activities. Hundreds of millions of visits to swimming venues occur each year in the U.S. that result in 0-8 infections per year. It is unknown why certain people become infected with the amebae while millions of others exposed to warm recreational fresh waters do not, including those who were swimming with people who became infected. For the latest information about the amoeba please visit the CDC's website www.cdc.gov/parasites/naegleria/general. html or http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/naegleria/pathogen.html The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend testing untreated rivers and lakes for Naegleria fowleri because the ameba is naturally occurring. Also, there is no established relationship between detection or concentration of Naegleria fowleri and risk of infection. Posting signs based on nding Naegleria fowleri in the water is unlikely to be an effective way to prevent infection because: Naegleria fowleri the ameba is naturally occurring Infections are rare -The relationship between nding Naegleria fowleri in the water and the occurrence of infections is unclear The location and number of ame bae in the water can vary over time within the same lake, river or body of water. There are no rapid, standardized testing methods to detect and quantify the amoeba in water. Warm water precautions ~ What you can do Pat Dobbins

SUMMER SPECIAL! 6 Caloosa Belle July 17, 2014 The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle is proud to sponsor a "Venturing Crew". At a recent Kiwanis Meeting the rst members of the "Venturing Crew" gave a presentation of their structure, their of cers, and what they plan to do in the near future. Tim Holland (A LaBelle Kiwanis Member) w ill lead the crew and gave an overview of w hat was needed to achieve various ranks. Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, or age 14 through 20 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens. Venturing crews can specialize in a variety of avocation or hobby interests.Goals Young adults involved in Venturing will: Learn to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values in the Venturing Oath and Code. Experience a program that is fun and full of challenge and adventure. Become a skilled training and program resource for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other groups. Acquire skills in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts and hobbies, religious life, or Sea Scouting. Experience positive leadership from adult and youth leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles. Have a chance to learn and grow in a supportive, caring, and fun environment. Methods The aims of the Boy Scouts of America are to build character, develop citizenship, and foster personal tness. The Venturing methods listed below have been carefully designed to achieve the aims of the Boy Scouts of America and meet the needs of young adults. Leadership All Venturers are given opportunities to learn and apply proven leadership skills. A Venturing crew is led by elected crew of cers. The Venturing Leadership Skills Course is designed for all Venturers and helps teach them in an active way to lead effectively. Group Activities Venturing activities are interdependent group experiences in which success is dependent on the cooperation of all. Learning by "doing" in a group setting provides opportunities for developing new skills. Adult Association The youth of cers lead the crew. The of cers and activity chairs work closely with adult Advisors and other adult leaders in a spirit of partnership. The adults serve in a "shadow" leader capacity. Recognition Recognition comes through the Venturing advancement program and through the acknowledgement of a youth's competence and ability by peers and adults. The Ideals Venturers are expected to know and live by the Venturing Oath and Code. They promise to be faithful in religious duties, treasure their American heritage, help others, and seek truth and fairness. High Adventure Venturing's emphasis on high adventure helps provide team-building opportunities, new meaningful experiences, practical leadership application, and lifelong memories to young adults. Teaching Others. All of the Venturing awards require Venturers to teach what the y have learned to others. When they teach others often, Venturers are better able to retain the skill or knowledge taught, the y gain con dence in their ability to speak and relate to others, and they acquire skills that can bene t them for the rest of their lives as a hobby or occupation. Ethics in Action An important goal o f Venturing is to help young adults be responsible and caring persons, both now and in the future. Venturing uses "ethical controversies" to help young adults develop the ability to make responsible choices that re ect their concern for what is a risk and how it will affect others involved. Because an ethical controversy is a problem-solving situation, leaders expect young adults to employ empathy, invention, and selection when they think through their position and work toward a solution.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (July 10, 2014) – Three Rotary Clubs have supported Child Care of Southwest Florida’s efforts to provide highquality early education to low-income children with a combined $8,500 contribution to the agency’s scholarship fund. Rotary Club of Fort Myers contributed $5,000, Rotary Club of Fort Myers South donated $2,500, and Rotary Club of SanibelCaptiva added $1,000. “Once we shared research results with the Rotary Clubs, they were eager to support our efforts,” said Executive Director and Rotarian Beth Lobdell. “Studies prove that children who are deprived of high-quality early-education experiences are far more likely to drop out of school, experience teen pregnancies and run into trouble with the law. Ninety percent of the brain’s neurons develop by the age of 5, so kindergarten is too late to start providing an effective learning environment.” Child Care of Southwest Florida provides early-education and voluntary prekindergarten programs at six accredited centers in Lee and Hendry counties. Scholarships are prov ided to low-income families, allowing them to maintain employment and providing their children with the continuity that fosters learning and social development. When the agency learned of unexpected funding cuts that would impact many of its families, its board of directors launched a fundraising effort to keep affected children in its centers. “Low-income families don’t always have access to high-quality programs, and dependable child care is critical to their employment,” said Board Chair Karen Miller. “We could not let any of our children leave for nancial reasons, and we’re grateful to the Rotary Clubs and others who are helping us cover the shortfall.” Rotary Clubs bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships and take action. The clubs, with Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, w ork to make lasting improvements in their communities and around the world.

10 Caloosa Belle July 17, 2014 It started eighty years ago. Women from LaBelle would gather together and once a month took a ride over to Fort Myers to meet w ith other women. The club was known as GFWC Woman’s Club of Fort Myers, one of the rst in Florida. They discuss local events, national affairs and international issues. A fter the rst year of commuting back and forth to Fort Myers the group seems to have grown into a caravan of women with the same mission. The LaBelle Women with a healthy prodding from Fort Myers decided it was time to form a club for LaBelle. One of the husbands heard of the efforts and offered the use of the local movie theater for the women to hold meetings. Eighty years ago the LaBelle Community Woman’s Club w as born. The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through v olunteer service. Our government of cials should not be held accountable for community service. We need to be responsible for ourselves and nurture our neighbors. What’s needed is a renewed commitment to civic participation. You join a club because you support the principles of the organization. Our community service programs span all areas of lives of our members, their families, and communities: arts, conservation, education, home life, public issues, and international outreach. Our challenge this year is to bring mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, doctors, teachers, and community leaders who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of others into this club. We are non-partisan and non-denominational women volunteers and we need you!

FORT MYERS, Fla. (July 11, 2014) – The application process for the 2015 UNITE (Uniting Nonpro ts In Teaming for Excellence) Award will open Aug. 1 and close on Sept. 30, 2014. Established by Myers, Brettholtz & Company, PA and supported by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Cape Coral Community Foundation and the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades counties, the UNITE Award is a regional award that recognizes successful nonpro t collaborative models across Southwest Florida’s vecounty area that exemplify excellence and community impact. Its goal is to provide information to the nonpro t community about collaborative models that have succeeded in our area and to share proven effective practices for nonpro ts working together. The Bob Janes Triage Center/Low Demand Shelter was the winner of the inaugural UNITE Award in January 2014 and received the $25,000 cash prize. In addition, each of the runners up, Families First: Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, Inc. and Child Care of Southwest Florida, Inc., and Southwest Florida Addiction Services/Lee Mental Health Merger, received $2,500 thanks to funding made available by the Wayne Smith of the Smith Famil y Foundation who wished to reward the other nalists for their dedication to collaboration in the community. The 2015 winner will be announced at the annual Myers, Brettholtz & Company’s full-day nonpro t seminar to be held on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015, at the Holiday Inn Fort Myers Airport-Town Center. “Each of the 27 entries we received last year were inspiring,” said Lori SampsonWilson, principal of Myers, Brettholtz. “It clearly shows that our regional nonpro ts are working together to achieve positive collaborative results.” The Bob Janes Triage Center/Low Demand Shelter is a collaboration with the Salvation Army of Lee, Hendry and Glades counties, the Lee County Board of Count y Commissioners, law enforcement, Lee Memorial Health System, SalusCare, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the United Way. The Triage Center serves primarily as a voluntary pre-arrest diversion program to reduce the number of individuals with mental illness and/or substance use disorders that are arrested and sent to jail for minor offenses. “We were so appreciative of this recognition of our efforts that help make a difference in the community,” said Major Thomas Louden of the Salvation Army. “The cash award was put back into the program to help participants with incidental expenses for job readiness such as needed medications, apparel for job interviews and other various items that will help them get bac k on their feet and become independent.” To be eligible for this year’s award, a collaboration has to: Be based in the ve-county Southwest Florida area (Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendr y and Glades) Involve two or more entities (i.e., nonpro t organizations, businesses, and/or government agencies) Include a lead organization that is a 501(c)(3) nonpro t Have a structure that is evidenced by a formal written agreement (i.e., memorandum of understanding, contract or merger agreement) Be able to demonstrate the impact o f the collaboration through measurable outcomes Have been in operation for a minimum of 18 months, with a formal written agreement in place no later than March 1, 2013 For more information on the UNITE Award, call 239-939-5775 or visit Myers, Brettholtz & Company’s website at www. mbcopa.com, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s website at www. oridacommunity.com or the United Way’s website at www.unitedwaylee.org.

Barron Library’s Summer Program Sponsored by Kiwanis Club of LaBelleBUGS, BUGS, and KIDS, where would we be without either one of them? The library had their fair share of both on Tuesday morning as they discovered how important ‘Bene cial Insects’ are to all of us. Frank & Liz, with the help of Mr. Rob, shared interesting facts about how bees keep our food supply growing and Lady Bugs keep the bad bugs away from the plants. The kids used magnifying glasses to look at different kinds of bugs, and then made their own lady bugs. Following the presentation, the lady bugs were released into the ower garden to continue their work. Remember, there is a new educational program each week for your children to enjoy. July 22 Computer Science – CPR Tools July 29 Science of Aerodynamics Joe Timm August 5 Healthy Lifestyle Food & Exercise County Health Dept. Make sure your children continue to read throughout the summer so they don’t fall behind. We want all of the kids to be on target when they start back to school in August. Keep track of each book they read and turn the report into the library on or before August 4th for the chance to win a prize. 1EZDRIVE.COMGuaranteed Credit Approval EZAuto Sales Chip Dorn Randy Hamilton863-675-1866 Put your card in this space for six weeks for Only $90!
