The ve-year plan would give ALTAIR a tax exemption of 50 percent the rst year on all real property improvements and tangible personal property, which include items such as equipment, vehicles and gun ranges. The abatement would begin at 50 percent and decline by 10 percent each year for ve years. At the end of ve years, ALTAIR would have the opportunity to come back before the BOCC and renegotiate an abatement plan. The abatement would not affect property taxes on the more than one-thousandacre facility, which has been off the county’s tax roll since the institution closed down in 2012.With the ve-year, sliding scale tax abatement, the county is projected to lose roughly $24,479.57 in taxes over the ve years. The facility’s propert y taxes are expected to total about $32,000 per year. BOCC members approved the tax abatement proposal with a 4-0 vote with the intention of encouraging ALTAIR to move forward as quickly as posBOCC approves tax abatement for ALTAIR Patty Brant/ Caloosa BelleMaking smilesThe stuffed animals Abuse Counseling and Treatement, Inc., donated to the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce will go a long way to help children cope with bad situations.

Some BOCC members, as well as members of the public, talked about adding a clause that would require ALTAIR to hire so many Hendry County employees or the abatement would become null and void. However, it was noted that dictating who an employee can hire is dif cult and the proposed clause was excluded. In other business, the BOCC voted 4-0 to approve a request from the Hendry County Sheriff’s Department for $7,425.10 from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund to be utilized for DARE classes, activities and graduation ceremonies for all elementary schools in Hendry County.

Arrests "Never take candy from a stranger." This is a statement that kids hear over and over again from their parents. We constantly preach to them that although candy is a delicious treat, sometimes there are manipulative motives with such offerings. Often this is a literal lesson but other times it's an analogy that represents various acts of deception we are faced with today. When discussing av ored tobacco we have a pretty clear "candy" and "stranger." Flavored tobacco products have become increasingly common in the United States, containing avors such as vanilla, orange, chocolate, blueberry and cherry (CDC Tobacco use at a glance, 2011). These deceptive tactics are being used to target youth as "starter" tobacco products and are perceived as safer and better tasting. Among many problems, the major problem here is that tobacco products, even candy- avored, are addictive and carry serious health risks (CDC Tobacco use at a glance, 2011). It is crucial that we recognize our children are falling victim to this misleading marketing strategy. Under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, the sale of cigarettes containing certain characterizing avors other than menthol became illegal as of September 2009 (FDA Flavored Tobacco Product Facts Sheet, 2011). This ban exempts tobacco avored products other than cigarettes. Chewing tobacco, dip, snuff, cigars, cigarillos, and other avored tobacco are still being sold in local retailers. In Hendry County, 1 in 5 youth between the ages of 11 and 17 have tried avored tobacco (Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, 2010). This means that the same children we see riding bikes, shooting hoops, and studying are being targeted by the tobacco industry. With such tempting marketing for youth, it is clear why our kids are experimenting with tobacco. National polls are releasing ndings that more youth between the ages of 12 and 17 are exposed to avored tobacco products or ads than adults (Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, 2010). It is our job as parents, teachers, coaches, and members of the community to get the word out and stand up against the tobacco industry that designs these products with kids in mind.

If you went public school prior to 1963, or perhaps shortly after that, you probably remember the Lord Prayer being recited as a normal activity in the classroom. Try that today. The ACLU, and every atheist group in the land of the freedom, and all across the fruited plain would have you in the fastest sling available, pointed directly to the jailhouse. Regretfully, The Lord’s Prayer is not allowed in most public schools in America anymore. The reason? Simple: the word ‘God’ is mentioned. Heaven forbid! No wait – can’t mention that place either, for that smacks of being intolerant and judgmental. However, students are free to tell teachers, school administrators, and anyone else to go to hell, but that’s another issue. So, today we have what has been called “The New School Prayer.” It was written by a 15-year-iold student, and, amazingly, he w as given an “A+” for the submission. See the following: “The New School Prayer” Now I sit me down in school Where praying is against the rule For this great nation under God Finds mention of Him very odd. If scripture now the class recites, It violates the Bill of Rights. And anytime my head I bow Becomes a Federal matter now. Our hair can be purple, orange or green, That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.. The law is speci c, the law is precise. Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice. For praying in a public hall Might offend someone with no faith at all. In silence alone we must meditate, God’s name is prohibited by the United States. We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks... Guns are allowed, but not the Bible. To quote the Good Book makes me liable. We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King. It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong, We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong. We can get our condoms and birth controls, Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles. But the Ten Commandments are not allowed, No word of God must reach this crowd. It’s scary here I must confess, When chaos reigns the school’s a mess. So, Lord, this silent plea I make: Should I be shot; My soul please take! Amen.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. The New School Prayer The “Ding” Darling Wildlife SocietyFriends of the Refuge (DDWS), with J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, has announced its eighth annual donation of teacher grants. This year the DDWS Board of Directors voted to double the total available grant funds from $5,000 to $10,000 and to expand eligibility beyond Lee County to Charlotte, Collier, Glades, and Hendry counties for conservation education-related projects. Teachers in the ve-county area may apply for grants up to $1,000 to purchase teaching aids, books, and classroom materials; fund new classroom science projects; take eld trips; or conduct work projects in the community. All schools are invited to submit environmental educationor science-related unit proposals by Oct. 31, 2014. The approved proposals will be awarded in November 2014 for projects to be completed by May 2015. “The education committee is very pleased that the board has generously increased the reach of our teach grants,” said Doris Hardy, DDWS Environmental Education Committee chair. “With environmental education funding being cut throughout the school district, teachers and students are grateful to receive our grants to fund special projects. It’s an important part of the society’s mission to educate and make future conservation stewards out of today’s youth pool.” In the past seven years, the Society has granted more than $39,000 to local schools for environmental projects. The teacher grants are funded by DDWS monies received from the “Ding” Darling Foundation earmarked speci cally for education.

Health care providers can learn how to use the registry’s tools and features in quick, free training segments at their own pace and schedule with web-based training available 24/7. All training resources are available in English and Spanish through www. shotsusers.com/training. These trainings are available for both Vaccines for Children (VFC) program participants and non-VFC participating health care providers. Florida SHOTS data upload feature allows health care practices to automaticall y update shot records from their existing medical software into the registry by batch and real time web-service upload. This increases ef ciency and accuracy. Please visit www.FLHealth125.gov for more information.

By Patty BrantCaloosa Belle In years past, Port LaBelle Inn was a center of activity for LaBelle residents. After y ears of decline, new owners are working to bring the fun back to the facility. St. Matthew’s House purchased the property in May. The changes they are making w ere initially distrusted by many in the community and brought out some very stubborn resistance by locals. Now that the effects of those changes are becoming apparent, some folks are having second thoughts. St. Matthew’s drug abuse recovery program is housed at the facility, taking up the entire third oor of the hotel. The second oor and restaurant are open to the public. Slowly, residents are rediscovering the Oxbow Inn. Innkeeper Donna Adams rst came to take over the restaurant in February w ith experience in running hotels/motels and restaurants including many at national parks. Her previous experience had been as a computer operator but she got into hospitality when she decided to retire. In fact she came here to work at Port LaBelle Inn from the Grand Canyon North Rim. She also managed Glacier National Park in Montana for many years overseeing cabins, 120-room facility, two restaurants, a gift shop, general store and meeting room. A native of Canada, her home is in Georgia. She said a bellman at Glacier National Park who was from her area in Georgia brought her attention to the Port LaBelle position and that was all it took. She was only at Port LaBelle for about two months when St. Matthews House took over the facility May 2, but Donna said they are well-matched. She handles the facility’s 23 rooms open to the public – the entire second oor. She also handles the restaurant and conference center. The restaurant includes dining space for 140 and the kitchen. The conference center – the Sabal Palm Room – can accommodate everything from baby showers and w eddings to conferences of up to 100 people. They’ve also hosted a job fair. The Big O Birding Festival last February was a huge w eek for Port LaBelle Inn and had the added bonus of providing a lot of information on Hendry-Glades to newcomer Donna. The conference center will accommodate everything from hors d’oeuvres to a full buffet. The restaurant also caters. Donna said it’s been fun and exciting. She is here full time, a change for her as her experiences out West were only during the tourist seasons. Donna spends her days balancing the restaurant, housekeeping and maintenance, then handling whatever comes up. She said she has competent employees in all areas a total of 14 employees all of whom were here before St. Matthew’s House bought the property. Last February she said the hotel was booked almost 100 percent all the time. Summers are slow around here, she realizes, but she’s looking forward to being busier as the season progresses. The Inn offers Sunday brunch from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. It’s closed Monday, then opens Tuesday through Saturday at 4:00 for dinner. The week rounds out with Taco Tuesday, Wing Wednesday, Cuban sandwiches on Thursday and a big Fish Fry on Friday. There are daily specials and you can always order off the full menu, Donna said. Breakfast is served in the lobby for guests from 5-11 a.m. and there’s coffee 24/7 for patrons and guests. The bar has been closed, but Donna said plans are in the works to make good use o f that space, so watch for that innovation. She said the courtyard is also getting a facelift with new furniture soon. Participants in St. Matthew’s rehab program do a lot maintenance and yard wor k around the facility, but local licensed plumbers and electricians are handle the more complicated repairs. These young men can also be seen throughout the community, helping non-pro t organizations with community projects. “It’s a joy to work with St. Matthew’s group,” Donna said, and hopes the community will come by and get reacquainted with the beautiful facility.

7 Caloosa Belle September 4, 2014 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Dr. Ryan Parrish is the newest member to join Parrish Family Chiropractic, 80 N. Main Street. His brother and fellow chiropractor J osh opened the of ce in LaBelle ve years ago with Dr. Selena Parrish. A 2006 graduate of LHS, Ryan went to Edison for two years, then on to FGCU before studying chiropractic at Life University in Atlanta, GA, where he graduated last December He said he found that he enjoys helping people feel better and that it's really gratifying, seeing patients barely able to function, return smiling with relief or completely w ithout pain. He said that some patients can hardly walk and are almost screaming in pain. In just a couple weeks with proper chiropractic care, the difference can be "awesome," he noted. In recent years chiropractic has earned a more scienti c basis, he said, supported by research, and teaches more speci c improvements. Dr. Ryan said he is looking forward to gaining more practical experience and mutual education through his partnership with his brother. Ryan said his own experience as a chiropractic patient led to his interest in the eld. "I always knew I would be in health care. I just didn't know exactly what," he commented. He said in high school he had a lot of lower back pain from sports, mainly basketball, and he always liked the preventive approach of chiropractic. Dr. Ryan said that often alignment problems start as a child when bones get knocked out of place. It can go unnoticed by youngsters, but the problem doesn't go away. Instead it shows up later in life. Dr. Ryan said the most common complaint is low back pain usually caused by an in amed or herniated disk. Their practice isn't all about procedures and treatments, The Parrishes can also provide the bene ts of massage and share prevention methods. They make referrals, accept most insurance and even do the paperwork. There is no age limitation for chiropractic patients and Parrish Family Chiropractic can treat patients from neonatal up through the elderly. Chiropractors are required to take 40 hours of continuing education every two years through the Florida Chiropractic Association to keep up with fast paced treatments. Dr. Ryan is happy to be back in LaBelle and his wife Gwen already loves the place. They have a six-month-old daughter they are looking forward to raising in LaBelle. Dr. Ryan said chiropractors may be thought of as a primary care "portal of entry" because they are trained in primary and diagnostic procedures they know when a condition requires chiropractic treatment and when a patient should be referred to another physician. Dr. Ryan invites any young student who may be interested in chiropractic to shadow him and others to get a true idea of the eld. Collecting information should be their rst course of action, he said. Parrish Family Chiropractic is open from M-Th 8:30-6 and Friday 8:30-4. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins will be accommodated as they can. You can call 863-675-0421 or go to http:/ / www.parrishfamilychiro.com.
