On Sunday, September 21, 2014, President Bill Clinton and Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton honored the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) For “defending The human Rights of Farmworkers across the United States.” The Global Citizen Award was presented to the CIW by Eva Longoria, Executive Producer of Food Chains, A lm chronicling the work of the CIW. The CI W received the award alongside actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Atifete Jahjaga, The President of Kosovo. President Barack Obam a also spoke at The Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting. President Bill Clinton said of the CIW’s Fair Food Program: “I want to close by saying the most astonishing thing politically in the world we’re living in today… is our Immokalee honorees. We heard our rst speaker say that 20 years ago he was an 18-year-old farmworker… The idea that 20 years later, you could have gotten the biggest companies in the world to agree to use their market power to clean up the labor conditions, to raise the wages to decent wages. You know, all over the world there are people just like you that are 18, who think that their only option is to pick up a gun or a bomb, and you proved them wrong.” Eva Longoria introduced the CIW, drawing on her own involvement in the struggle for farmworker justice: “I chose to advocate for farmworkers early in my life. Not because I was a farmworker, I was not. Not because anyone in my family were farmworkers, they were not. I chose to advocate for them because I eat food. I care about where it’s grown, how it’s grown and in the people that pick it. We are the most well fed nation in the world, and the people who pick our food often go to bed hungry.” Lucas Benitez and Greg Asbed, co-founders of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, accepted the award on behalf of the organization. Lucas Benitez: “Of course, we’d also like to thank the Clinton Global Initiative, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton and Chelse a Clinton for this award, which will only add to the growing visibility of the thousands o f poor communities, from Immokalee to Bangladesh, where multinational corporations EZ Randy Hamilton Chip Dorn 863-675-1866 1EZDRIVE.COM Guaranteed C redit Approval Get a Fresh Start* Cash down payment determined by Lender, down payment and payment may vary.

This is a .77 mill increase over last scal year. The board also will use $500,000 from its disaster relief fund to balance the budget. Last year’s millage rate was 7.7209. In previous years, the board has used non-recurring reserves, which no longer exist, to balance the budget. The increase will allow an across the board salary increase for all county employees the rst for board employees in seven years. It will fund increases in liability and health insurance as well as retirement rates. In addition, Emergency Medical Services will be able to fund operation of all ve ambulances and return three EMT/ Paramedics to the roster, that had to be cut from the service several years ago. In addition to increasing the millage rate, the board has helped balance the budget by cutting costs and increasing efciency, particularly in IT, and reduced all department budgets, according to Hendry County Finance Director Jennifer Davis. Millage rate up over last year Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that occurred on CR 846 east of County Line Road at 6:49 a.m. September 22. Joseph Augustus, 46, of Riviera Beach w as taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition. He was driving a 2010 Nissan and, according ot FHP, was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Twelve passengers from the second vehicle, a 1988 International bus, and the driver w ere all transported to Hendry Regional Medical Center, and another ve were transported to LeHigh Regional Hospital. All 45 of the bus passengers sustained minor injuries. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Mr. Augustus was traveling westbound on CR 846 (Immokalee Road) while the bus driven by Silverio Ramirez-Santiago, 56, of Immokalee, was eastbound on the same road. The Nissan crossed the center line and the bus driver attempted to steer toward the right grass shoulder to evade a collision. The left front of the Nissan struck the left front of the bus, then rotated and came to face northeast in the north grass shoulder. It is unknown if anyone on the bus was wearing a seatbelt. The bus came to a nal rest in the south grass shoulder facing southeast. The collision is still under investigation.

sew, grow and assemble the products we all consume. In these communities, horri c tragedies and instances of dehumanizing abuse have darkened the headlines over and over again: unsafe factories, workers forced to labor against their will, a culture of sexual harassment and violence without redress. For these workers, the traditional models of corporate social responsibility have failed them often with tragic consequences. And so we asked a simple question: What if we as workers ourselves, designed our own social responsibility program to protect our own human rights?" Greg Asbed: "That simple question enabled us to design in partnership with Florida's $650 million dollar tomato industry and a dozen of the world's largest retail food corporations a new way forward that we call Workerdriven Social Responsibility. This model led to the Fair Food Program, a social responsibility program that is designed and enforced by the very workers whose rights it is intended to protect, in collaboration with the growers and retail food companies whose risks it has mitigated with unprecedented success. With this approach, we've seen almost unimaginable change happen in only three growing seasons, including a near total reduction in the sexual harassment and violence against women in the elds, the injection of over $15 million into farm labor payrolls to address grinding generational poverty and, perhaps most dramatically, the elimination of forced labor in an industry once dubbed "Ground Zero for ModernDay Slavery" by federal prosecutors. Indeed, in 2010, our colleague Laura Germino stood with then Secretary of State Clinton to receive the State Department's "Hero" award for our help in prosecuting slavery in Florida's elds. Today, just four short years later, we have traveled the road from prosecution to prevention, eliminating slavery altogether through the strict market consequences that underlie the Fair Food Program. Today our program is poised to expand into new states and new crops, and we couldn't be more excited about the future for low-wage workers, not just in Florida, but around the world. The vast promise of marketbased, workerdriven social responsibility is only no w beginning to unfold, but the CGI Global Citizenship Award will surely provide an incomparable boost to our efforts to establish this important breakthrough as the gold standard for the protection and expansion o f fundamental human rights." Greg Asbed and Laura Germino were also accompanied by a very special guest. Their nine-yeaer-old son, Isaiah Germino Asbed, a student at Upthegrove Elementar y school, had this to say about his experience: "This is a huge moment for me, and I kno w that not many 9 year-olds have done this. I'm really excited to go see so many famous people, and I'm also just really proud of m y parents, that they could get this incredible award. And I'm really at a loss for words otherwise." 2 Caloosa Belle September 25, 2014 A wardContinued From Page 1 Submitted photos/ Marley MoynahanIsaiah Germino Asbed interviewing President Bill Clinton.

LaBelle Heritage Museum, through a collaboration with the Clewiston Museum and the Florida Humanities Council, will present archaeologist Katie Smith at LaBelle City Hall's Commission Chambers, 481West Hickpochee Ave. (State Road 80) on W ednesday evening, October 8, at 7 o'clock. Ms. Smith, a classically trained archaeologist w ho studied Ancient Hebrew, Palestinian, and Greco-Roman peoples and their languages as an undergraduate, has broadened her sphere of interest to include the prehistoric Belle Glade Culture that once inhabited Florida's Lake Okeechobee region. Limited information on the Belle Glade created more questions than answers on these pre-historic people. Through modern technology, archaeologists are now starting to ll in some of the missing links as they research these mysterious people that time forgot. Ar-chaeologist Katie Smith will share discoveries from the ongoing research she conducts on the skeletal biology of the Belle Glade people. Her ndings are based on the "Belle Glade" skeletal collections held at the Smithsonian Institution. This presentation, the rst of four scheduled for the 2014/2015 Program Year, is made possible by a Florida Humanities Council Neighborhood Grant awarded to the Clewiston Museum who invited LaBelle Heritage Museum to collaborate on this Special 2 Year Speakers Program bringing guest speakers to small communities that otherwise might not have experienced and bene tted from such programs. The remaining three pro-grams, scheduled for November 2014 and January and February 2015, will feature noted area paleontologist Mark Renz, archaeologist Melissa Timo on water traf c on the Ca-loosahatchee and the Big Lake in earlier times, and story-teller Butch Harrison, who per-petuates the almost lost art of Cracker story-telling. The public is welcome at these admission-free programs but is asked to arrive early enough to be seated for the 7 o'clock program since the presenters often have some dis-tance to travel at the conclusion of their programs.

Beding eld was recognized for over 25 years of youth-focused service toward the promotion of clogging. Friends and family waiting in the wings to greet Beding eld who was unaware of the honor awaiting her during the Florida Clogging Convention's closing evening presentation. Beding eld is the director of the Country Rhythm Cloggers in LaBelle. Pictured: Andy Howard and Pat Beding eld. From her Letter of Nomination by Andy Howard: Pat gave me my rst clogging lessons around 1989. She has been a close friend and mentor, and I hope to illuminate why she deserves this award. To fully appreciate Pat's service, you would have to know LaBelle, Florida, or imagine a small rural community that has an overall de cit of opportunities for youth and families, and the existing resources and activities were somewhat limited to church, school and sports until the 1980s. The clogging she has fostered is multifacetedit has touched me on a personal level, and in great appreciation for what it has done for my family, my friends, and my special hometown on the Caloosahatchee River in small, rural Southwest Florida. What is most, it afforded me the opportunity to become close friends with Pata relationship that was nurtured as a youth through her mentorship and example, into my adulthood where I am most proud to call her a tremendous friend. I safely offer that this feeling is shared with my family and many, many friends. Pat has a signi cant, yet understated presence in LaBelle and also in the clogging community at large. She is a rare individual that has remained focused on youth involvement and opportunity, and insuring clogging is experienced by kids.

As a parent, one of the rst decisions you have to make is how to feed your baby. This decision is important and should re ect what is best for your infant's health now, and in the future. The WIC Breastfeeding Team with the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) in Hendry and Glades Counties can help you. Here are few examples that can help you to decide about breastfeeding: A new mom might say: "Wow, my baby is here and beautiful as can be! Should I breast feed or formula feed?" Classes are provided at the Department of Health of ces in Hendry and Glades Counties. Classes are available in English and Spanish. Some of the basic reasons why a mother should decide to breastfeed: Baby's Health: Breastfeeding and human milk are the natural and normal way to feed your baby. Experts agree that babies who receive only breast milk for about six months and continue until the rst birthday (along with the right beginner foods) get the most bene ts! They are less likely to develop health problems including ear infections, diarrhea, asthma, obesity and breathing problems. Breastfeeding also gives the best nutrition to help babies grow well and "sets the stage" for doing really well in school! Mom's Health: Moms bene t from breastfeeding too. Moms who breastfeed tend to have less risk for breast and ovarian cancers, diabetes and high blood pressure. They even lose weight faster after having their babies. Environmental Health: Breastfeeding makes the environment cleaner by reducing the amount of trash that lls our land lls. Babies go through about 9 12 cans of formula each month. Imagine how many cans all the formula fed babies go through each year! Family's Financial Health: Breastfeeding is free. Babies who only are given breast milk are sick less often so mom misses less work. That also means less time and money is spent on doctor visits and medicine. A parent may say: "I had a hard time nursing my rst child. I just didn't make enough milk. However, when I started formula, I had to go through several different formulas to nd one that didn't constipate her, cause her to throw up or cause her to just be fussy! I really want to breastfeed my next baby and want to know if some mothers can't make enough milk. WIC gives you support when you need it the most! The classes include information about things that make breastfeeding complicated and give ideas to make breastfeeding successful. There is also "one-on-one" support. The WIC Breastfeeding Team consists of two International Board Certi ed Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), Breastfeeding Peer Counselors and WIC staff. The IBCLCs have hours of education on breastfeeding. Doctors rely on IBCLCs to help mothers meet their breastfeeding goals. WIC Peer Counselors are trained to provide "motherto-mother" education and support through breastfeeding classes, support groups and one-on-one counseling. All WIC staff has also been trained to help teach you how to breastfeed your baby. To reach your breastfeeding goals, you need an extended team of "helpers" and healthcare professionals to support you. This breastfeeding team can include family, friends, physicians, nurses, midwives, employers, and childcare providers. Together, the community breastfeeding team provides information to boost con dence, protects mothers against critics, gives reassurance, and lends a hand to help breastfeeding mothers succeed. WIC is an active part o f the community breastfeeding team. Another parent might say: "I want to breastfeed, but I have to go back to work right after delivery!" Being separated from your baby is dif cult but WIC can provide support to help you through the process. There is also a breast pump loan program available for mothers exclusively breastfeeding and going back to work or school. The team can help you gure out how and when to pump.

Women Infants & Children (WIC) Your Go-To Place for Breastfeeding Information and Support! "If you will preach to broken hearts, you will never want for a congregation." These were the words of the speaker from the rst pastors conference I ever attended held in 1981. They ring securely in my spiritual ears yet today. The reason these words are so true is because the world is full of people who are dealing with the emotional pain. Because we live in a fallen and sin- lled environment of people needing help I have pursued training in counseling. Scores of folks everywhere seek comfort, understanding, and a "shelf" on which to put their struggling souls so they can get some rest. Finding that rest starts with forgiveness and making a choice to move forward. In working through forgiveness it is important to rst de ne what forgiveness it is not. First, forgiveness is not that same as forgetting When you forgive someone your memory isn't suddenly wiped clean of the offense. God does that, but we can't. Forgiveness is not regaining automatic trust of an individual. It wouldn't even be logical to immediately trust the person who injured you or somehow betrayed your trust of them. No matter where one lives on this earth, in every culture, trust is always earned. When it is violated, it can be earned again, but it isn't going to happen in ten or twelve minutes. (News ash sometimes trust is not earned again for ten or twelve years!) Additionally, forgiveness is not a removal of consequences. The offender may still have consequences to face due to his or her actions. Forgiveness does not mean one is to ignore the offense. To pretend nothing happened in the violation is magical thinking. Those who engage in such "make believe" eventually will have to address this inner turmoil. The reason is simple: faking pain only results in resentment and anger that leads to unhealthy disasters. Instant emotional healing is rare because some pain runs deep and takes longer to heal. That said, it is important to de ne what forgiveness is. Scripture is clear that those who want to walk this life as a Christfollower have an obligation to forgive even as we have been forgiven (Eph. 4:32.) This is directive from Scripture is tough because costs the hurting person to have a forgiving spirit. Have you ever noticed no one has to learn how to hold a grudge? Please note, however, that the Bible doesn't say "forget", but "forgive." Clari cation again we should not allow forgiveness to be an open door for continued abuse. That doesn't lead to a healthy relationship. The goal given from the Bible is to free our hearts of the anger, bitterness, and frustration. God commanded it. Why would He do that? Here is what I have learned over the years as a counselor and pastor. Failing to forgive begins to control the one harboring unforgiveness. Unforgiveness serves no purpose to repair the relationship or you. Holding onto the pain certainly doesn't teach the offender a lesson or make him or her a better person. Letting go of a right to get even is part of release. In Acts 7:54-60, Stephen had to make a choice to forgive those who were stoning him, an action that actually took his life. Selecting to move forward past that pain is to say without reservation, "Yes, it hurt. I didn't like it, but I'm moving forward despite the pain." A choice like this is not easy, but is a conscious decision made by the injured party. It is the rst step towards healing the weight of the offence, and opens a door for emotions to heal. Bottom line we've all been hurt. And we all have a decision to make remain in the hurt, (and move into bitterness), or move forward into forgiveness. Whom do you need to forgive?

Online off-road vehicle training course available for park visitors by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At the September 11 LaBelle City Commission meeting the City of LaBelle Planner Shellie Johnson presented an overview of the envisioned Downtown Walking District. She said the Downtown Regulating Plan will cover streets, commercial streets, rear alleys and drives that will be oriented toward pedestrian traf c. In the future, if the plan is accepted, construction in the downtown area will be built up to street, with large windows and doors providing views in and out, wide tree-lined sidewalks, with seating and parking behind buildings. The plan would also restrict building forms in the district, being limited to having awnings, balcony, front porches or stoops. Colonnades would be acceptable and buildings would be limited to three stories (maximum 55 feet), but more generally two stories (42 feet maximum). City administration will be able to accept may variances so the process should be simpli ed. Mayor Dave Lyons noted that this project is a "really big deal" and the entire board of commissioners opted to have another workshop on the process to ensure it is well understood and workable. LaBelle Fire Department The nal water supply LFD Assistant Chief Art Perez noted the date, September 11, and recalled that 2,977 people died in the attack on America, with yet another 120 re ghters dying from the results. He said LFD handled 45 calls last month, many small res. He said three new hires have been delayed because they're waiting on background checks. Lt. Richardson of the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce promised to make sure they get done. The LFD can have a total roster of 25. The re department needs acquired buildings they can destroy for training. Hauling off debris would be the responsibility of the owner. Ms. Hill noted that some condemned houses may be used for this purpose. In other business: Resident Sam Ballard asked the board to approve a no parking zone at his mother's house at Hall and Fraser mothers house. The no parking area will be 75 feet on the south side of Fraser and 75 feet along the west side of Hall Street. He said cars ruin the lawn, crushed the city water meter box and destroy landscaping, regardless of what he has done to keep them from parking there. The request was approved. Tim Taylor Applied Technology Management ATM reported that a water treatment plan change order was approved by the USDA. City Attorney Angela Hill said the city needs to transfer some right-of-way for Helms Road to the county, but needs to be careful to reserve a general utility row-ofway across the road. Ms. Hill will prepare the appropriate paperwork. Walking district plan presented

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINIC! 6 Caloosa Belle September 25, 2014 by Pat DobbinsAlthough some progress has been seen lately, childhood obesity is still a major public health problem. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 17% of US children are obese, and certain groups of children are more greatly affected. Research shows that children who are overweight or obese as preschoolers are more likely than children of normal weight to be overweight or obese as adults and suffer lifelong physical and mental health problems. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. There are no simple solutions to childhood obesity. The problem is in uenced by many different factors such as the lack of community places to get physical activity or a lack of access to healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Research shows that fruits and vegetables are important in promoting good health and is important when someone wants to lose or manage weight. Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and contain lots of water and ber (both help you to feel full). Additionally, these foods also contain essential vitamins, minerals, and ber that may help protect children against health conditions later in life. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is important for everyone and especially children because it helps with their growth and development. Children can eat or drink fewer calories and stay full longer by substituting fruits and vegetables in place of foods with higher-calorie ingredients such as added sugars and solid fats. Childhood obesity can be prevented. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for kids to eat healthier and move more. We can all use this month to raise awareness about the obesity epidemic and sho w people how they can take steps toward a solution. Here are just a few ideas: Encourage families to make small changes, like keeping fresh fruit handy or going on a family walk after dinner. Motivate schools to be healthier. Help them provide healthy food options and dail y physical activities for students. Ask healthcare providers to be leaders in their communities by supporting programs to prevent childhood obesity. Working together, states, communities, and parents can help make fruits and vegetables the easy choice for children and adolescents and help decrease childhood obesity. September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month LaBelle area residents may be interested in an organization called Open Hearts and Homes, which allows an orphan from foreign country to live with a local family for a few weeks. This orphan hosting program allows these kids, many of whom have never had the opportunity to share in the family experience, to do so. During their few weeks here, many of these children can receive health care they would not have access to in their home country. Although many of these children are eventually adopted in the US, it is not expected that Open Hearts and Homes families adopt them. This is simply an opportunity for the children and the families to get acquainted. The organization plans to bring over Eastern European children, ages 7-14, twice a year during the summer and winter for a three-four week vacation. In addition to host families, this non-pro t Christian organization needs helpers to assist in taking these children to doctors' and eye appointments and entertainment opportunities. Since the cost of bringing a child over here to participate is about $2,800, participating families, as well as anyone interested, are asked to raise funds to help. If you'd like more information on how to bring American families in touch with children in Eastern European nations and provide unique experiences for all, you can contact Stephanie Conner at 863-517-0542. Open Hearts and Homes in LaBelle OKEECHOBEE United Way Community Leaders in Hendry and Glades Counties recently completed the allocation process that determines the needs of local health and human service agencies. Volunteers set a goal of $247,400 to be raised during the 20142015 United Way Campaign. The allocations process ensures scal and performance accountability for all programs and initiatives, and at the same time helps assure the real human service needs of the community are met. Teams of volunteers analyze each United Way partner agency's effectiveness, the need for the serv ice the agency provides and the impact of United Way funding on meeting the community's needs. Four teams with a total of 31 Hendry and Glades community leaders reviewed 28 agencies and recommended funding 48 programs. Team Leaders were Kate English of Pavese Law Firm, Ron Zimmerly with the City of LaBelle, Andy Tilton of Johnson Engineering, Tommy Perry of Johnson-Prewitt & A ssociates, Scott Bass and Mike Carter of the Glades County School District. Last year the United Way of Hendry and Glades goal was $223,000 and the campaign surpassed the goal. The 2014-2015 Campaign will begin raising funds toward the $247,800 goal in mid-September. Tommy Perry will chair the campaign. The funds raised for the United Way go to the 28 local United Way Partner Agencies including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Abuse Counseling and Treatment (ACT), Hope HealthCare Services and Children's Home Society. All funds raised in Hendry and Glades Counties support programs in Hendry and Glades.

Fort MyersThanks to the generous support of The Southwest Florida Community Foundation, and an anonymous donor, attendees of the Trailways Camp for adults w ith disabilities will soon be able to enjoy the fun and safety of a dock during their camp sessions. Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. will receive the $13,000 grant to go towards the construction of the dock and connected pathway. Trailways Camp is a partnership between Goodwill and The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund. The camp is held at Riverside Retreat in LaBelle. Trailways, which was launched in October of 2012 to address the social isolation experienced by adults with special needs and their caregivers in Southwest Florida, offers a variety of outdoor activities including shing along the Caloosahatchee waterfront. The dock will provide a secure, stable, and ADA compliant foundation for these activities. $10,000 has also been pledged to the project by the Board of Trustees of The Florida Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. "We are deeply grateful for the generous hearts of those who have acted to make this project possible," says Trailways founder Sharon Miller. "The shing pier and walk w ay is a major step toward improving access for adults with mobility and other challenges, and is consistent with the partnership goal of providing safe, fun, and quality programs." Many adults with disabilities live with aging family members or caregivers and have few social or recreational opportunities that provide relief for their caregivers. Trailways Camp gives participants a chance to experience quality social recreational activities in a safe environment while giving respite to the families and caregivers. "The addition of this dock will really enhance the camping experience," says Jesi Cason, Trailways Camp director. "We can't wait to incorporate it into our activities." Construction on the dock and pathway, which will be donated by Hammerheads of Sanibel, is anticipated to be complete by early 2015. For more information regarding the Trailways camp contact Jesi Cason at (239)995-2106 ext. 2312 or JesiCason@goodwillsw .org. About The Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund Sharon and Jerry Miller started a Donor Advised Fund in Central Texas after their son Robert passed away in late 2005 from complications stemming from a rare neonatal disorder. Robert and his brother Ben both enjoyed camp experiences as children and young adults in Michigan. More and more the Miller's observed the social isolation and barriers to relationships that developed as children with special needs passed through school experiences, became adults and their families aged. The Millers reside in West Rocks in Sanibel. They have funded and led development of camps for adults with special needs since 2007. In 2011 they established The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund at the SW Florida Community Foundation, and created an Advisory Group that has led local design and development of Trailways Camps.

The facility will be located at latitude 26 42’ 37” N, longitude 81 32’ 00” W, at 5942 State Road 80 West, LaBelle, Florida 33935, in Hendry County. The plant will also receive 2,448 gallons per day of reverse osmosis concentrate water by way of its in uent lift station. The Department has assigned permit le number FLA8183 I 3-002-DW3P to the proposed project. The intent to issue, application le, and draft permit are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department’s South District Of ce, 2295 Victoria Ave, Suite 364, Ft. Myers, Florida 33901, at phone number (239) 344-5600. The Department will issue the permit as drafted unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-1 10.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be led (received by the Clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel before the end of the time period for ling a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be led within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may le a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a quali ed representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any. which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department’s decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 467307 CB 9/25/2014 Public Notice Public Notice ADVERTISEand Get Results Community Briefs READING A NEWSPAPER...leads you to the best products and services.

Say hello to Afeez. You’ll de nitely know him when you see him. He stands 7 feet 3 inches, the same height as the tallest basketball player currently in the NBA. Statistically, only one in ten million people are that tall. Afeez Agoro is 38 and from Nigeria. It’s his rst time in the United States. Afeez is hosted by the Intelligentsia International of ce where he wants to expand his skills in computer technologies while also visiting other parts of Florida over the next few months. About his rst impressions of LaBelle he said, “This town is so quiet compared to my home city of Lagos. I think I will like it once I get used to the calmness. And the people seem nice. The rst time I went to a store, people said hello to me and some asked to have pictures taken with me. It was so good to experience a welcoming atmosphere.” While he may be tall, his basketball playing days are over. People of extraordinary height often experience bone and joint problems after the age of 30, and Afeez is no exception. “I can get around ne but am a little slow and can no longer walk long distances, much less shoot hoops. But I still like to watch basketball games and look forward to seeing some while I’m here,” said Afeez. This year Intelligentsia International will have welcomed a total of 35 visitors to LaBelle. The of ce recently hosted 18 science and engineering students from Brazil as part of the Brazilian Science Mobility Program that brings 4000 students a year to study at US universities. During the summer these students undertake technical and cultural internships and Intelligentsia hosted more Brazilian interns than any other organization in the USA. The small LaBelle of ce had to turn away another 40 Brazilian students who wanted to come for the summer. But the summer rush is over and Intelligentsia has just a few visitors now. In addition to Afeez is Leopoldine Mathieu from France and Ian Chou from Taiwan. Leopoldine, an agronomy student, is helping Caloosahatchee Riverwatch organize communit y events while Ian, an aerospace engineering graduate from Dartmouth is building a uid dynamics computer model of hurricane wind forces on rooftop solar panels. A feez Agoro is a big guy in our small town HERE’S MY CARD Keep the number of these locally owned businesses on hand for all of your service & shopping needs. 1EZDRIVE.COMGuaranteed Credit Approval EZAuto Sales Chip Dorn Randy Hamilton 863-675-1866 Rick PopeBarberSpecializing in: Fades, Fohawks, Flattops, Blowouts, Regular, Styles, Scissor Cuts, Senior Cuts, Kid Cuts & Hot Shaves Please call me at (954) 448-8475 For a Great Haircut Put your card in this space for six weeks for Only $90!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK! 19 Caloosa Belle September 25, 2014 Florida hunters planning to hunt deer, moose or elk out of state this year need to be aware of certain laws and regulations aimed at preventing chronic wasting disease (CWD) from entering our state. CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild cervids (white-tailed deer, mule deer, moose and elk) within 22 states, two Canadian provinces and in South Korea. The disease causes degeneration of the brains of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. There is no known evidence that CWD can be transmitted to livestock or humans. The disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota, Maryland, Texas, Alberta and Saskatchewan Canadian provinces, and in South Korea. Hunters need to know that it is against the law to bring into Florida whole carcasses of any deer from any of the above-listed areas. The purpose of this measure is to prevent CWD from being brought into the state. The infective agent is more likely to be concentrated within the brain, eyes, spinal cord, lymph nodes, tonsils and spleen of the animal. This infective agent, called a prion, can be accidentally deposited into the environment, where it can remain for years and can infect other deer. Many states have a prohibition in place that is similar to Florida’s. It is OK, however, to bring into Florida deboned meat and nished taxidermy mounts, tanned hides, cleaned skulls, antlers and teeth from any of these places, as long as all soft tissue has been removed. For more information about CWD or this rule, visit MyFWC.com/CWD. The website also provides links to wildlife and health agencies with more in-depth information about the disease. Please report deer found sick or dead of unknown causes to the CWD hotline: 866-CWD-WATCH (866-293-9282). Floridians hunting deer out of state need to be aware of laws Submitted photo/ Waddy Thompson
