by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The Hendry County library system offers some of the most important resources available, although they may unfortunately also be some of the least used. Director for the Hendry County Library Cooperative System Ava Barrett has been on the job for a y ear and eight months and continues to work diligently for the entire three-library system, although the Clewiston Library is the main of ce. Ms. Barrett said the system works as a team or group with things like joint training and she is looking forw ard to adding services to the entire library system. One of the projects Ms. Barrett is working on is bringing ebooks to the Hendry County system. Although many people are enamored w ith the idea of being able to read a book online, the Hendry library system does not yet have that capability. That's because, at $8,000 annually, the cost is out of range. Using the system, library patrons w ould set up an account on the library's web site using their library card, which would allow them to download ebooks onto their computer, phone, iPAD or any similar device. The service would be free to the user, and would work like Amazon, but the library patron would have access to that ebook for a speci ed length of time. Ms. Barrett said she's been fund raising for the ebook program for a year, but the recurring expense is too much for the library's budget. The Hendry library system is one of only a handful of systems in Florida that currently does not have ebooks available. Karen Hildebrand, Director of Barron Library, echoes her comments. "We are so excited with the forward movement the Hendry County Libraries are experiencing. However, considering the fact that nine out of ten libraries across the country have integrated ebooks into their systems, we still have a long way to go," but adds, "We look forward to additional opportunities to grow and expand our offerings in the future." Ms. Barrett is researching setting the library system up as an MSTU its own taxing entity in the county to eliminate much of the budget shortfalls that have plagued the system over the past few years and to provide services like ebooks. She hopes to have the taxing unit set up by 2016. There are three libraries included in the system: the main library in Clewiston, Barron Library in LaBelle, and Harlem Library (Director Florida Thomas). Last year, Ms. Barrett procured a $50,000 grant from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation and is working on another grant to Thursday, August 7, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 91 No. 32 See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It's just about time for school to start once again and LaBelle High School is gearing up for the students' arrival August 18. When they arrive they will be greeted by a new principal, Dr. Robert Egley. Long time Athletic Director Dave Kelley has taken over Assistant Principal duties. Dean Lori Perkins is joined by newcomer Ryan Harris. Deans will have wide ranging responsibilities including student conduct, supervision, class management and behavior. Head Football Coach Chris Siner and Mr. Harris will be sharing Athletic Director duties. Already they're working on fund raising for sports programs. Dr. Egley served as principal at LaBelle Middle School, where he and his team of teachers and administrators brought the school grade up from a D to a C. He served as principal at Clewiston High School for four years and was principal at Glades Day four years and locals will also remember him as a candidate for Superintendent of schools ve years ago. Dr. Egley's rst day at LHS was June 9. Since then he and Mr. Kelley said they6 have been working hard, putting together a good team. Making sure the best people are in the right jobs, Dr. Egley commented, is most important key to success. He said he looked for highly quali ed teachers who also care about kids. He said they have recruited 17 educators (in Guidance, Spanish, business education, seven in English/Reading (having a reading endorsement), three in math, one in social science, one in science, one new dean and one paraprofessional. English teachers who do not have a reading endorsement have one year to earn it. Planning for the year, Dr. Egley and Mr. Kelley agree that keeping students engaged "from bell to bell" every full 50-minute class Country Rhythm Cloggers enjoy performing LHS has new administrator Submitted photo/ Pat Beding eldOn June 21, 32 Country Rhythm Cloggers performed at Wild Adventures in Valdosta, Georgia. This picture was taken after a 45-minute performance featuring the different groups in several songs, along with a number featuring the entire group.They had an outstanding performance and were invited back for the Theme Parks Bluegrass Festival. After their show the cloggers and their families enjoyed a day in the park. Directors Pat Beding eld and Jesse Whitman want to thank the families for their help and support and the cloggers for all their hard work and dedication. The entertainment director sent an email stating that we were the best group they had ever seen. We missed all the cloggers who were unable to attend and hope they will be able to go with the team to perform at Universal Studios in June, 2015.

In fact, Ms. Barrett said she wants to integrate the library’s children’s section into the schools and would love to add to the county’s resources. Recently, LaBelle and Clewiston completed a seminar for home businesses with the nal class coming up at the Harlem Library. The library will even pay the license fee for any small home bound business successfully completing the course. In LaBelle, the EDC’s Educational Task Force provided money for replacement computers at the library, with help from Commissioner Karson Turner and Rep. Matt Hudson. Ms. Barrett is also looking forward to bringing in the Microsoft IT Academy course to all three libraries with $20,000 from the Hill Foundation. The program will allow people to become certi ed in Microsoft in online classes at the library. Participants must go to Clewiston Library for the certication exam, however. The class may be instructor led or self teaching. There is so much going on at the library, it would be a great idea to get better acquainted with what’s available from around the world just around the corner. LibraryContinued From Page 1 is crucial to the students’ success. Dr. Egley said that FCAT is still applicable in reading the state mandates more and more online course exams. It’s the school’s responsibility to evaluate what the kids do, and support their needs with more Advanced Placement (AP) classes, guiding students through rigorous courses for college or mainstream to career readiness. Juniors and seniors will be encouraged to take ACT/SAT tests to get them thinking forward. They plan to expand Mr. Kelley’s very successful Check and Connect program that helped 52 at risk students become more successful last year. The program pairs a teacher with a students needing a little extra attention and opens a connection with the family. Many of these students “live in a different world,” Mr. Kelley notes, and a little extra encouragement can make a big difference for them. “Thank God for public schools,” Dr. Egley said, “It’s the last hope for some of these children.” Last year LHS had 22 mentors who provided special attention to certain students. LHS administration plans to treat all students as if they will be a success. The ethic of care is there for students, but they are responsible for their own educational future, the men agree. “The ethic of care in Hendry Count y schools is amazing,” Dr. Egley commented. Testing is a big change for the schools. Much of it must be done online. For man y students, that’s really a comfort zone. “The world has changed,” Dr. Egle y points out, “these kids are digital natives.” LaBelle High School faculty and staff are preparing to guide students on their journe y to success in college, a vocation or IT.

God’s good.’ ‘Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?’ ‘Yes’ ‘Are you good or evil?’ ‘The Bible says I’m evil.’ The professor grins knowingly. ‘Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment. ‘Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?’ ‘Yes sir, I would.’ ‘So you’re good...!’ ‘I wouldn’t say that.’ ‘But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us w ould if we could. But God doesn’t.’ The student does not answer, so the professor continues. ‘He doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?’ The student remains silent. ‘No, you can’t, can you?’ the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. ‘Let’s start again, y oung fella. Is God good?’ ‘Er..yes,’ the student says. ‘Is Satan good?’ The student doesn’t hesitate on this one.. ‘No.’ ‘Then where does Satan come from?’ The student falters. ‘From God’ ‘That’s right. God made Satan, didn’t he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?’ ‘Yes, sir.’ ‘Evil’s everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything, correct?’ ‘Yes’ ‘So who created evil?’ The professor continued, ‘If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works de ne who w e are, then God is evil.’ Again, the student has no answer. ‘Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?’ The student squirms on his feet. ‘Yes.’ ‘So who created them?’ The student does not answer. The professor repeats his question. ‘Who created them?’ There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. ‘Tell me,’ he continues onto another student. ‘Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?’ The student’s voice betrays him and cracks. ‘Yes, professor, I do.’ The old man stops pacing. ‘Science says you have ve senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?’ ‘No sir. I’ve never seen Him.’ Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?’ ‘No, sir, I’m afraid I haven’t.’ ‘Yet you still believe in him?’ ‘Yes’ ‘According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn’t exist... What do you say to that, son?’ ‘Nothing,’ the student replies. ‘I only have my faith.’ ‘Yes, faith,’ the professor repeats. ‘That is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence. The student stands asking a question of his own. ‘Professor, is there such thing as heat? ‘ ‘Yes. ‘And is there such a thing as cold?’ ‘Yes, son, there’s cold too.’ ‘No sir, there isn’t.’ The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room got very quiet. The student explains. ‘You can have heat, more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but nothing called ‘cold’. We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but no further. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowes -458 degrees. A person or object is susceptible to study when transmitting energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is total absence of heat. Cold describes the absence of heat. It cannot be measured. Heat is measured in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.’ A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer. ‘What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?’ ‘Yes,’ the professor replies without hesitation. ‘What is night if it isn’t darkness?’ ‘You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, ashing light, but if you have no light constantly it’s called darkness, That’s the meaning used to de ne the word. In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker.” The professor begins to smile ‘So what point are you making, young man?’ ‘My point is your philosophical premise is awed, and so your conclusion must also be awed.’ ‘Flawed? Can you explain how?’ ‘You are working on the premise of duality. You argue that there is life and then there’s death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something nite, something we can measure. Science uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?’ ‘If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.’ ‘Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?’ The professor begins to shake his head. ‘Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher? The student looks around the room. ‘Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor’s brain?’ The class breaks out into laughter. ‘Is there anyone here who has ever heard, felt, touched, or smelt the professor’s brain. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.’ ‘So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?’ The professor just stares at the student. Finally, the old man answers. ‘I guess you’ll have to take them on faith.’ ‘Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,’ the student continues. ‘Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?’ Now uncertain, the professor responds, ‘O f course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man’s inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.’ To this the student replied, ‘Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence o f God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.’ The professor sat down. The student was Albert Einstein. In 1921 he wrote a book titled God vs. Science. In that volume he wrote, “Something cannot come from nothing, thus something as amazing as our universe is the evidence o f an extreme intelligence. He is God.”Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church located across the street from City Hal l on Highway 80 in LaBelle. The Day Science Collided With God Dr. Les Morgan

The hospital supply chain is a complex, interconnected system that, if managed effectively, creates value, builds a competitive infrastructure and meets supply demand w hile controlling costs. Creating the processes to support such a system requires an understanding of hospital nances, purchasing, receiving, inventory, and distribution; Gail Wiseman (HRMC's Director of Materials Management) and Heather Davis (HRMC's Materials Management Specialist) have that necessary knowledge. Just last month in Nashville, Tennessee, Karla Jackson (Regional Director of Quorum Purchasing Advantage) presented Gail and Heather with the Top Overall Contract Compliance Award, recognizing Hendry Regional Medical Center for its dedication to supply chain savings through compliance with Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) contracts. HRMC receives Compliance Award Hendry Regional Medical Center is all set to provide school physicals for the children in our community. Summer is still in full swing, but the rst day of school will be here before you know it. If you haven't already scheduled an appointment for your child's school or sports physical, now is the time to do it don't wait! Often, school physical examinations are the only times throughout the year that children visit medical facilities. HRMC suggests using yearly school physicals as an opportunity to build and add to a child's complete medical history. This can help ensure that the youngster's progress and development over time are monitored and that potential emerging problems are detected. Don't get caught up in the last minute rush, Schedule physicals for your school-aged children today, Call the Forbes Family Care Center in Clewiston 863-983-3434 or the Convenient Care Center in LaBelle 863-675-2356. HRMC offers school physicals by Denise W. Thompson Clewiston Christian School preschool teacherPreschool plays an important role in a child's opportunity for growth. For many children, preschool is the rst time a child takes part in a structured classroom setting with a teacher and other groups of children. It is also the beginning foundation for preparing them for elementary school. Preschool promotes social and emotional development, language, cognitive skills and also helps develop motor skills. Research states that children attending preschool have been shown to yield bene ts in academic achievement, behavior, education progression and attainment, delinquency and crime, and labor market success, among other domains. The rst few years o f a child's life are a particularly sensitive period in the process of development, laying a foundation in childhood and beyond cognitive functioning; behavioral, social, and selfregulatory capacities; and physical health. When choosing a preschool you should choose a high-quality program that suits your child and family. You can feel assured that your child is well cared for, and that he or she enjoys the activities along with making friends, and that he or she is building the knowledge, skills and con dence to do well in kindergarten. Why is Preschool important in early childcare education?

Call 239-728-5332. by Pat DobbinsWith only a few weeks left of summer break, parents are probably thinking about getting their child ready to go back to school. Along w ith school clothes and school supplies, parents should make sure preventative health measures are included on their child’s back-toschool checklist. Success in school starts with keeping students healthy and safe. Parents should take their children to a healthcare provider for an annual “well-child” check-up and make sure all vaccinations and medical records are in order. Parents should talk with their children about traveling safely to and from school. This includes planning safe routes for walking or riding a bike, reminding them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing the street only at designated crosswalks, and showing them how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if they are riding a bike to school. Healthy eating, adequate physical activity and good sleep patterns are also instrumental to success in school. Please take time now to update your children’s immunizations and get the required documentation they need to start school. Many health care providers and families have already begun the process to get ready for the new school year.

It is the inoculation intended to cure many of the ills af icting our country from corner to corner, cities and rural areas alike. It is exactly what Marie Capita and IMBIZ are all about. The center may be located in Immokalee, but it reaches out to a much larger area, including LaBelle. An attorney with a degree in nance, Marie was a natural for the position, which she began in 2010 in the cramped county code enforcement of ce shared with the district Collier County Commissioner. As of August 1 IMBIZ is a new name, but the same mission to help Immokaleeans become successful entrepreneurs. In March 2013 Marie submitted the paperwork to transform IMBIZ into an independent non-pro t 501 c 3. The paperwork went through and, as of August 1 its ties with Collier County were severed, and IMBIZ stood on its own for the rst time. It's a dream come true for Marie. With no more ties to county government, funding opportunities increase, she said, and she can search out private funding as well. Many banks have Community Redevelopment Agencies that focus funding on local businesses exactly the same group IMBIZ focuses on. The federal Community Redevelopment Act requires commercial banks receiving FDIC insurance to provide loans to low and moderate income communities. Marie said there are 42 banks in Collier County that are potential sources of support. Marie's job, and the focus of IMBIZ, has not changed since the beginning. The idea remains to provide assistance to entrepreneurs so they can build their small businesses, which in turn strengthens the local community Of course, she is seeking funding from various foundations and other potential sources. Marie feels it will be easier to get funding from those who relate to small entrepreneurs. In a racially mixed community with many newcomers, Immokaleeans don't necessarily have an academic background in business like so many in the more populated areas do, but they make up for that it in hard work and passion for their dream. And that's the starting point for Marie and IMBIZ. It's hard for coastal people to appreciate the de cit local folks have in the "mechanics" of how modern business is done, she said things like where to go to get information; or even how to use a computer. IMBIZ exists to help novice entrepreneurs gain these types of skills and experience. There are 13 participants enrolled in entrepreneur class and Marie said she gets a lot of walk ins who just need a quick answer. She also gets referrals from banks of people who need a loan but aren't set up properly to qualify. Lots of people are interested in their shorter classes for things like Quick Books, computer basics and using social media like Twitter and Facebook for marketing that have been attractive to LaBelle participants. Many people are also interested in nding out how to utilize advantages for minorities and qualify for government contracts. A food safety class guides entrepreneurs in how to secure FDA certi cates and even patents. IMBIZ also partners with SBDC (Small Business Development Center) and SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives) to bring other services to Immokalee. Marie's job requires patience, she said, as well as passion. IMBIZ isn't just for Immokaleeans. Its courses bring in students from LeHigh, LaBelle and the surrounding area. Marie dreams of increasing the programs' visibilit y through more programs and a much-needed community kitchen. IMBIZ is open 9-5 Monday-Friday but call rst. Marie often offers workshops at night and has exible hours. Call 239-867-4411 IMBIZ of ce is located at Jubilation on Lake Trafford Road, in what was previously Hodges University building. If you want to start a business IMBIZ has effective means to guide you through the process, provide information and checklists and to help you make your business plan to become a legitimate business.

Did you ever go to a wedding reception, birthday party or holiday event and just sit there while the music plays and others are out on the dance oor having a great time? Now you will no longer have to sit and watch others doing w hat they call dancing! Dance classes are being held in the club house at Maple Corners on Whidden Road, just north of LaBelle (directions to be provided). Since starting the classes in 2006, over 150 LaBelle residents and people from as far away as Clewiston and Fort Myers have gone through the paces and learned to “cut a rug” in style. Students in the beginning classes have learned to dance the waltz, fox trot, rhumba, swing and Texas Two Step w ith a few steps of the polka and merengue thrown in. At the request of the students an adv anced class was added a few years ago in w hich the students were given some additional steps for the dance they had already learned, along with being introduced to the cha cha, samba and mambo, It’s easier than y ou think and you will be amazed at your ability after the eight weeks of lessons are over (just in time for all those holiday parties!) In addition to the group classes Diane and Nick have also taught private lessons as w ell as preparing couples for that special dance on their wedding day. Classes are held on Monday evenings beginning on September 29, 7-8 p.m. Class size is limited to the rst 15 couples, so call to reserve your place in the class at 675-1020.
