Rec Director Ramiro Rodriguez thanked everyone for their help and reminded them of more work days coming up. “It’s hard to get big things started,” he noted, but this project is moving ahead well. Ms. Elizabeth Bumgarner, who donated $25,000 for the park with the promise of doubling that if the residents of LaBelle contribute another $25,000 to the effort, took off her shoes and put in a little sweat equity herself. Zac’s courageous ght against a deadly amoeba last summer continues to bring the community together. His dad, Jesse, said the family is honored to see this new playground go up in Zac’s memory and grateful to those who are making it happen. Zac’s Friendship House, meeting the needs of middle schoolers, opened for the summer and started after school hours on August 18. Located at the old Lions Club, it’s open Monday–Friday from 2-6:30 p.m. TOP: Volunteers from the LaBelle Kiwanis Club, Venture Club and St. Matthew’s House as well as individuals made the work go quickly.

Lender PUD, a 277-acre development to be located at the southeast corner of R 29 and Helms Road. The development will include residential homes, retail commercial and light industrial zones. There are two possible plans. The rst includes 249 multi-family residences, 74,000 sf of commercial retail space, 300,l00 sf of ofce space and 360,000 sf for light industrial. The other option would include 507 multi-family residences; 190 sf of commercial retail space; 90,000 sf of ce space and 80,000 sf for light industrial. “This is a big deal,” Mayor Dave Lyons said, wondering i f this project could almost result in another city. City Planner Shellie Johnson admitted that it will be a big project with big plans that will come into being in phases. Ms. Johnson likened the development to a neighborhood designed for people to both live and work in. The board unanimously approved the PUD. City commission approves development by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The board offered its appreciation to Assistant Planner Sarah Catala for her years of service. She has accepted a position with the Department of Transportation, but promised she will be available to work with the county on District 1 matters.

The Assistant Planner position formerly held by Ms. Catala is to be reclassi ed to a Planning and Community Development Director, who reports to the county administrator. A Strategic Initiatives Coordinator position is also to be developed, who will also report to the county administrator.

2 Caloosa Belle August 21, 2014 The cost of this reorganization is covered in the county’s current 2014-15 budget plan. A irgladesCounty Attorney Mark Lapp reported that the management agreement with Airglades International Airport, LLC (AIA) is ready for approval but the negotiation period needs to be extended to accommodate changes made to the agreement by the FAA. The management agreement has to be settled before the county can sell Airglades Airport to AIA. FAA will still need to approve the facility for privatization. County Administrator Chapman said he was encouraged by the level of support throughout the process and reminded the board that, in the end, the FAA has to answer to Congress. Airglades is expected to be turned over to A IA September 1. Commissioner Janet Taylor moved to approve the management agreement. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Darrell Harris and passed 4-0. Commissioner Michael Swindle was absent from the meeting.RecyclingThe county is eligible to apply for a $90,909 Florida Department of Environmental Protection grant program. The grant w ould be used to offset operating costs and keep pickup rates reasonable for residents. Board Chairman Karson Turner noted that Commissioner Harris got the School District on board with recycling but that the county needs to show a turnaround in recycling. Chairman Turner wants to jump start recycling by placing large, well marked bins at both high school football stadiums to get folks to buy in to recycling at these big events and also teach young people to take up the practice. Announcements would also be made at all the games.Commissioner travelsA member of the public and editor of the Hendry-Glades Sunday News took Commissioner Janet Taylor to task, questioning her travels on county business to many out of town and out of state meetings, particularly meetings of African American topics. Commissioner Taylor replied that the board approves of her travels in its name. Commissioner Don Davis agreed that commissioners should have approval for travel, especially when the board will be seeking an increase in taxes from the public. The board agreed that members who travel on county business should report back to the other commissioners and the public about those meetings. All the board members do receive a summary of the commissioners’ travels, but it should be more lengthy and accessible. Commissioner Taylor agreed and said that in November the board designates which commissioners will represent the county on which agencies. If the board does not want a representative on certain boards, she suggested they should vote them down.MedicaidChairman Turner said the big budget question for the coming year is again Medicaid. He said Hendry County expects a huge increase in Medicaid costs Hendry is Number 1 per capita in the state for qualifying residents for Medicaid. He said he and the board will continue to seek a reduction in Medicaid payments for the county. The next meeting will be held Tuesday, August 26, at Clewiston City Hall. BoCCContinued From Page 1 Golf course discussionCity Attorney Angela Hill asked the board for a letter of intent to support a six-month feasibility study for a private company considering putting in a golf course. There is no risk to the city, she said. The letter would simply allow the Elias Brothers company access to the old ef uent disposal site on Forrey Road north of the Sports Park. Only staff time would be expended. The project would include housing and a golf course operated and managed by a private entity. The board agreed to issue the letter.Fire DepartmentChief Clint Walker told the board that July was a very slow month with no structure res. He reported on a water truck grant from the Department of Forestry for brush gear.Chamber informationChamber of Commerce Secretary Carmen Corbitt appeared before the board seeking better communication between the two. She said the chamber often hears suggestions and complaints that would be important to the city and that the city has information important for the chamber. It was decided that Ms. Corbitt would be invited to the meetings to bring concerns to the city.Downtown RevitalizationCity Planner Shellie Johnson said a workshop in September before the public hearing on the downtown revitalization regulations is under consideration. She provided a little update on the revitalization effort, saying the city is one of four invited to an interview August 28 in Tallahassee for a Main Street funding. The cities will be ranked that day. “This could be a game changer,” she told the board.Barron ParkThe city considered information that someone is using Barron Park for dance/exercise lessons and the like and charging. The commissioners were concerned about unfair competition with businesses supporting storefronts. Vendors are not allowed to set up booths in the park for the same reason. After much discussion, no one could decide how to police these kinds of issues.Fair HousingThe board listened to a Fair Housing workshop overview required for the cit y to be eligible for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. The workshop is a reminder of the overall legal protections for categories of residents. The city is currently eligible to apply for an Economic Development grant for infrastructure, mainl y bene ting low-moderate income areas. Come January, the city will again be eligible to apply for housing rehab, neighborhood revitalization and community revitalization grants for a CRA.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Highw ay Patrol will concentrate its enforcement efforts on drunk driving over the next two w eeks as part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign that begins today and runs through Labor Day on Sept. 1. The Patrol will join law enforcement and highway safety agencies across the nation to remove impaired drivers from our roadways in an effort to save lives. “Take a shot at drinking and driving, and w e’ll provide the chaser,” said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. “The choice to drink and drive is a bad decision that could have grave consequences. Be responsible, don’t drink and drive.” To arrive at your destination safely, ALW AYS:  Drive sober, and only sober  Buckle up  Eliminate distractions  If you do drink, plan ahead and have a designated driver  Observe and obey all speed limits The campaign coincides with the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend which marks the traditional end of the summer travel season. All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will patrol interstates and other major state roads during the four-day holiday. FHP Auxiliary troopers also will volunteer to augment the Patrol during the travel period. The Patrols increased presence throughout Florida will deter traf c violations and enhance services to motorists who break down or who need other assistance while traveling. Call*FHP (*347) if you see an impaired or aggressive driver, or to request roadside assistance.

Community Briefs by Pat DobbinsIn spite of the safety advances of the last few decades -seatbelts, airbags, improved crash standards -teen driver death rates remain unacceptably high. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. It’s hard to believe, but on average, eight teens ages 16 to 19 die every day from motor vehicle injuries. Young drivers increasingly die in groups. Young drivers are more prone to driver distractions, reducing their ability to react quickly and correctly to trouble. Along with carrying several passengers, other dangers include texting, talking on the phone, drinking, speeding, and playing loud music. The risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16to 19-year-olds than among any other age group. According to a recent study from the CDC, among teen drivers, those at especially high risk for motor vehicle crashes are:  Males: In 2009, the motor vehicle death rate for male drivers and passengers ages 15 to 19 was almost two times that of their female counterparts.  Teens driving with teen passengers: The presence of teen passengers increases the crash risk of unsupervised teen drivers. This risk increases with the number of teen passengers.  Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use. In 2005, 10% of high school students reported they rarely or never wear seat belts when riding with someone else.  Male high school students (12.5%) were more likely than female students (7.8%) to rarely or never wear seat belts.  Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use.  African-American students (12%) and Hispanic students (13%) were more likely than white students (10.1%) to rarely or never wear seat belts.  In a national survey conducted in 2007, nearly three out of ten teens reported that, within the previous month, they had ridden with a driver who had been drinking alcohol. One in ten reported having driven after drinking alcohol within the same onemonth period.  In 2008, nearly three out of every four teen drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes after drinking and driving were not wearing a seat belt.  In 2008, half of teen deaths from motor vehicle crashes occurred between 3 p.m. and midnight and 56% occurred on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Don’t be afraid to talk to your teen about safe driving. Allow them to take Driver’s Education if it’s offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle insurance company about programs available to teach teens about safe driving tips. Most of all, remember that what YOU do affects your teen! They learn some of their driving habits from watching what you do. Help to teach them to be safe and responsible drivers. Teen Drivers at Risk Pat Dobbins

Convenient access to the areas largest team of specialists.From cardiologists to general practitioners to pulmonologists and 7 Caloosa Belle A ugust 21, 2014 Submitted photo/ Karen HildebrandFIZZ! BANG! BOOM! READ!It was a busy summer at Barron Library with programs offered for all ages. There were over 1,000 attendees for the Elementary age group and approximately 200 participants in the Middle School programs. Encouraging the children to continue reading throughout their summer break is always a key part of the libraries summer program. This summer, with the sponsorship we received from the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle, the library was able to offer prizes for reading. Winners of the two bikes were: Joellen Erskin, who read 82 books and Rolando Sandoval, who read 71 books. Congratulations to these two young readers. We are proud of your accomplishments. Barron Library wishes to thank all of our presenters, including our ‘Mad Scientist’, Joel Hawkins, all of the parents who made sure their children attended the weekly programs, and the Kiwanis Club. We cannot thank the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle enough for their generous donation, which made the success of our program possible. Best wishes to all the students and teachers who will return to the classroom this week. Barron Library’s Summer Program sponsored by Kiwanis Club of LaBelle. Submitted photoKelly Boone, center and some of the local Girl Scouts. Submitted photoSome of the local Girls Scouts at a recent event held at Barron Library. Kelly Boone is a leader to 10 Junior Girl Scouts (5th grade girls) in LaBelle and also serves as the LaBelle Service Unit Manager and products sales coordinator, managing and supporting 8 troops with about 80 girls... all of these roles are volunteer positions. Kelly has enjoyed this leadership role and loves to see the small community of LaBelle create leaders of tomorrow. She says, “My favorite part as a Girl Scout leader is watching the girls react to new experiences.” Some of these experiences, they would never get to do if it wasn’t for Girl Scouts. “Watching them do something they didn’t know they could do is amazing,” said Kelly. Why does she take the time to do this for the girls and other volunteers? She wants to help establish self-suf cient young women and knows that the Girl Scouts curriculum is the right program to do this. Girl Scouts inclusive and “safe space” concept for girls and young women to come together to be themselves is something you can’t get anyw here else. Her theme this year is a princess theme… sounds a little girly? Nope… some of the activities are going to learn include self-defense (Mulan), sign language (Ariel), and the big service project this year is focused on reading and literacy (Belle)-just to name a few. Kelly is hoping to nd some new parents who will stand up with her to lead so the LaBelle Girl Scout community can continue to thrive. Girl Scouts is a volunteer-led organization and is in need of new volunteers for the upcoming school year.

It used to be illegal for men to be shirtless on U.S. beaches as it was felt that the sight of a man's bare chest in public was immoral and women and children had to be protected from that sight.

School Briefs Giving schoolchildren a chance to learn all about Florida black bears is a great way to teach them about wildlife, while sharpening their skills in reading, math, science and problem solving. For that reason, the Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has updated its Florida Black Bear Curriculum, and put it online for the rst time at BlackBearInfo.com. The revised Florida Black Bear Curriculum is free, easy for teachers to use, and meets the new Florida Standards for educational curricula. The curriculum offers 10 lessons on topics such as “The Black Bear Necessities” and “Oh Where, Oh Where is the Florida Black Bear?” and includes hands-on activities such as mapping and role-playing. There are also v ideos for students to watch such as the FWC’s “Living with Florida Black Bears.” “The Florida Black Bear Curriculum takes children’s curiosity about black bears into the classroom, where learning about black bears can improve kids’ skills in basics like reading, math, science and problem solving,” said Sarah Barrett with the FWC’s black bear management program. “Whenever FWC staff talks to kids about Florida black bears, the response is overwhelmingly positive because kids are eager to learn and ask great questions about bears.” With more encounters today between people and bears in Florida than in the recent past, it is increasingly important for children to learn about the state’s bear population. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum was designed for children in grades 3-8 and has been in use since 1999, when it was created as a joint project of the FWC and Defenders of Wildlife. But anyone is welcome to go to BlackBearInfo.com and take advantage of the educational material there. Black bear curriculum teaches kids
