See Business of the Year on Page 8. Dear Friends, My name is Dean Tanner. I am a retired LaBelle businessman and your Democratic candidate for the District 2 County Commissioner seat for the 2014-2018 term. I was born in Felda, FL, September 18, 1938, to Mutt and Evalena Tanner. I attended schools in Felda, LaBelle and Clewiston. While serving four years in the United States Air Force during the late fties (19561960), I was trained as an Aircraft Missile Hydraulic Specialist and stationed at Patric k Air Force Base in Cocoa Beach, FL. I worked on everything from B-17's to C-130's and F-80's to F-106's. I was a young man living and learning. After my tour of duty, I returned to Feld a and worked for Bill and Sid Maddox on their farms. I did everything from driving tractors, pumping water in and out of the farms, to digging ditches. Next, I went to work for Paul Porter eld at the Standard Oil Bulk Plant (where the Election 2014Tanner runs for District 2 commission seat Dean Tanner, candidate for District 2 Hendry County Commissioner. Tallahassee, FL Secretary of State Ken Detzner has announced the designation of Cocoa Beach, EDGE Business District in St. Petersburg, and LaBelle as the newest Florida Main Street communities. Designation requires three years of intensive training and technical assistance from the statewide Florida Main Street Program to support local revitalization and historic preservation efforts in the community's traditional commercial area. "I am proud to welcome Cocoa Beach, EDGE Business District, and LaBelle to the Main Street Program," said Secretary Detzner. "This important program encourages economic development of Florida's traditional commercial areas within the context of historic preservation. Its efforts foster a return to community independence, emphasizing the traditional assets of downtownlocal ownerLaBelle selected as Main Street community See Candidate — Page 2 See Main — Page 2 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle After years of having to travel long distances to VA facilities, Hendry/Glades veterans may have access to their care locally in the foreseeable future. At their September 23 meeting, the Hendry County commissioners underscored their support for the Veterans Administration plans to open clinics in Clewiston and Moore Haven. Cristie McKillop, Associate Director of the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center, informed the commissioners of the plan. Plans are moving ahead, and the VA is already looking for a Primary Care Team to man the facilities, which will include one Certi ed Nursing Assistant, one Licensed Practical Nurse, One Registered Nurse Care Coordinator and one Medical Doctor or DO. The goal is for the clinics to be operating in late Spring or early Summer 2015. The clinics will share space with the Hendry-Glades Health Department facilities in Clewiston and Moore Haven, with hours Monday-Friday, three days a week in Clewiston and two days in Moore Haven. Hours w ill most likely mirror other VA facilities 7:30-8 a.m.-4-4:30 p.m. However, VA Facility Planner Megan Waterhouse said hours could be more exible.

current Burger King is located in downtown LaBelle). Paul trained me to do it all...hauling fuel to farms, groves, ranches and even to oil well drilling rigs. He and Lorraine taught me all the of ce skills needed to run the business aspect of the company. After I became quite pro cient at my job, they felt comfortable slipping off to the mountains, knowing their business was being well taken care of. One of the most important things Paul Porter eld taught me was, "never forget those who brung you". I practiced that philosophy for the 32 years that I was in business. My dad became unable to work in the early 70s, so I left Porter eld Oil and went to work for him clearing land for the Red Cattle Co. east of Immokalee. Five years later, I bought him out. Year after year, I kept adding equipment to my company and I started a citrus tree removal service. Gilbert Soud was my rst citrus tree customer. The word got out that I knew how to detect the early stages of diseased trees and I got busy. I had to keep adding and upgrading equipment until my sons and I w ere running 13 loaders in four counties. W e worked for A. Duda, all the Collier Company groves, Berry Groves, Alico, Southern Gardens, and many more large or small groves, from 20 acres to 12,000 acres. My wife, Dorothy (Dot) of 34 years, is the daughter of the late Fred and Gladys Browning of Immokalee, FL. We have two sons and two daughters, granddaughters, grandsons, great granddaughter and great grandsons, that live in or close to LaBelle. After our son, Scott, died in 2003, I scaled back and our son, Eric Taylor, took care of the business. Scott was the leader of the 4-H Club in Felda and had a heart for helping young people. The Scott Tanner Memorial Scholarship Fund was founded in 2004 in his memory, designed to encourage and enable students to continue their education at the college level. The fund generates approximately $10,000 annually and has been awarded to deserving students each year for the past 10 years. In 2010, Paul Porter eld's son, Lloyd, passed away and I was asked to step in and manage Porter eld Oil. After a few years, I left it in the hands of our son, Eric. Now I enjoy playing golf three times a week with a group of ex-GI's and I'm running for your District 2 County Commissioner. I'd like to take all of the knowledge that I have learned and apply that business and common sense to the County Commissioner Board. I would appreciate your vote on November 4, 2014. During the past 12 years, we have lost business after business. We were hit hard by the recession and unemployment skyrocketed. Unwise decisions were made. We have seen improvement in the last couple of years but there is still much to be done. I will have the best interest of the people o f Hendry County. I have time to work for you!

Smoking, poor dietary choices and physical inactivity are major risk factors that you can change to lower your risk for cancer. Consider these seven cancer prevention tips. 1. Don’t use tobacco Using any type of tobacco increases your chance of developing cancer. Smoking has been linked to various types of cancer such as cancer of the lung, bladder, cervix and kidney. Chewing tobacco has been linked to cancer of the mouth and other areas. Even if you don’t use tobacco, exposure to secondhand smoke might increase your risk of lung cancer. If you avoid tobacco, or if you decide to stop using it, it may be one of the most important health decisions you will ever make. If you need help quitting tobacco, ask your healthcare provider about stopsmoking products. 2. Eat a healthy diet Although making healthy selections at the grocery store and at mealtime can’t guarantee cancer prevention, it might help reduce your risk. Consider these guidelines:  Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Base your diet on fruits, vegetables and other foods from plant sources such as whole grains and beans.  Limit fat. Eat lighter and leaner by choosing fewer high-fat foods, particularly those from animal sources. High-fat diets tend to be higher in calories and might increase the risk of overweight or obesity which can increase your cancer risk.  If you choose to drink alcohol, drink in moderation. The risk of various types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, lung, kidney and liver, increases with the amount of alcohol you drink and the length of time you’ve been drinking regularly. 3. Maintain a healthy weight and be physically active Maintaining a healthy weight might lower the risk of various types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, prostate, lung, colon and kidney. Physical activity counts, too. In addition to helping you control your weight, physical activity on its own might lower the risk of breast cancer and colon cancer. 4. Protect yourself from the sun Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer and one of the most preventable. Try these tips:  Avoid midday sun. Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest.  Stay in the shade. When you’re outdoors, stay in the shade as much as possible. Sunglasses and a broad-rimmed hat can also help.  Cover exposed areas. Wear tightly woven, loosetting clothing that covers as much of your skin as possible. Opt for bright or dark colors, which re ect more ultraviolet radiation than pastels or bleached cotton.  Don’t skimp on sunscreen. Use generous amounts of sunscreen when you’re outdoors, and reapply often.  Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. These are just as damaging as natural sunlight. 5. Get immunized Cancer prevention includes protection from certain viral infections. Talk to your healthcare provider about immunization against:  Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B can increase the risk of developing liver cancer The hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for certain high-risk adults — such as adults who are sexually active but not in a mutually monogamous relationship, people with sexually transmitted infections, intravenous drug users, men who have sex with men, and health care or public safety workers who might be exposed to infected blood or body uids.  Human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a sexually transmitted virus that can lead to cervical and other genital cancers as well as squamous cell cancers of the head and neck. The HPV vaccine is available to both men and women age 26 or younger who didn’t have the vaccine as adolescents. 6. Avoid risky behaviors Another effective cancer prevention tactic is to avoid risky behaviors that can lead to infections that might increase the risk of cancer. For example:  Practice safe sex. Limit your number of sexual partners, and use a condom when you have sex. The more sexual partners you have in your lifetime, the more likely you are to contract a sexually transmitted infection — such as HIV or HPV. People who have HIV or AIDS have a higher risk of cancer of the anus, liver and lung. HPV is most often associated with cervical cancer, but it might also increase the risk of cancer of the anus, penis, throat, vulva and vagina.  Don’t share needles. Sharing needles with an infected drug user can lead to HIV, as well as hepatitis B and hepatitis C — which can increase the risk of liver cancer. If you’re concerned about drug abuse or addiction, seek professional help. 7. Get regular medical care Regular self-exams and screenings for various types of cancers — such as cancer of the skin, colon, prostate, cervix and breast can increase your chances of discovering cancer early, when treatment is most likely to be successful. Ask your healthcare provider about the best cancer screening schedule for you.

Through the vision of Leonard Lee Ratner and his business partners in the Lee County Land and Title Company, Lehigh Acres grew from a patch of southwest Florida’s wild lands to a beautiful, booming community. Carla Ulakovic celebrates this ful lled dream and more in her new book, Lehigh Acres, the latest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s iconic Images of America series. With the expansion of the Lee County Land and Title Company’s holdings, Lehigh A cres grew to one of the biggest suburban communities in the country. With more than 200 images, Ulakovic reveals the city’s growth and prosperity. Carla said, “The increase in population has led to the addition of new schools; new businesses have been built, and community clubs, organizations, and agencies continue to promote community pride through festivals and cultural events.” Just as Leonard Lee Ratner did not solely grow Lehigh Acres, so Ulakovic credits the Lehigh Acres community with giving her stories, history, and inspiration for this book. “This project was sparked by a curiosity for the town I grew up in and fueled by a desire to preserve its past. It would have been a near-imposable feat to compile this story if not for the diligent historical preservation done by many of this community’s members,” Ulakovic said. Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-3132665 or online.

Carla Ulakovic is a member of the Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce and an honorary member of the Lehigh Acres Rotary Club. She has called on the community’s residents, reviewed personal photographic collections of long-standing local families, and conducted numerous interviews to narrate this visual voyage through the history of Lehigh Acres, from birth of a corporation town to the cultivation of a true community.

Richard James Lynn, 88LaBELLE — Richard James Lynn,better known as “Captain” or “Dick Lynn” of LaBelle, formerly from Kansas City, Mo. departed this life for his next voyage on Oct. 1, 2014 while surrounded by his family he loved so deeply. A celebration of his life was held Oct. 5, 2014 at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Church followed by a gathering of family and friends at the family home where his years of military service were honored by the playing of Taps before sundown. Richard was born on Dec. 25, 1925 in Kansas City, Mo. to James Harrison and Virginia Belle (Ashurst) Lynn. He graduated from N.E. High School and attended Kansas City Jr. College. Richard was a veteran of the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II where he served in the occupation forces of Japan and the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. A mongst his many business endeavors, Richard was a grocery-man and butcher at Lynn’s Markets, the rst grocery chain in K.C. He also developed real estate in Kansas, Missouri and Florida where his generosity allowed many families to own their own homes. Richard’s greatest passion was discovered as a young man when he found the Missouri River. W ithout hesitation he started and operated the Sharlyn Marina and restaurant for 10 years; the rst and last marina on the Missouri River in the Kansas City area. Several years later a horri c re consumed the marina and over 100 boats in storage. Richard began again only this time he chose riverboats. He began with a 60 passenger boat and opened the Kansas City Riverboat Co. in K.C., Mo. During the 18 years he operated there he built the Missouri River Queen, a 600 passenger, triple decker, sternwheel riverboat (now the Georgia Queen in Savannah, Georgia). With a vision and burning desire to grow he moved his entire eet to Kansas City, Kan. and built River City USA. It w as here he added the retired U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredge William S. Mitchell; 320 foot side-wheel dredge. He converted the goliath vessel to a living museum. He added two restaurants, a carrousel, an aviary and two passenger trains with the longest 24 gauge underground tunnel in the country. It was there he built his largest and last vessel (800 passengers) the America. Richard spent over 35 years carrying more than a million passengers safely on the Missouri River and its’ tributaries. In addition, he assisted the local civil defense, re and police departments and the US Coast Guard in numerous search and rescue operations. Captain Lynn was awarded the Congressional Silver Life Saving Medal of Honor, which was presented by Senator Bob Dole. In addition, his rst mate aboard the motor vessel, The Westport Landing, was also awarded a presidential citation by President Richard Nixon. He was a founding member of the Passenger Vessel Association. Richard’s foresight and determination set the wheels in motion for this small, edgling operation to grow to over 600 national and international members today. He has been inducted into the Hometown Heroes of Kansas City, as well as the Hall of Fame for the Passenger Vessel Association, Washington, D.C. Richard and his family settled in LaBelle over 16 years ago and built a home on the Caloosahatchee River where many a special event were held. Richard was unsel sh with his time and equipment, he was dedicated to quiet community service and the betterment of LaBelle thru service to church, school, civic groups, Habitat for Humanity and the United Way. Richard owned and operated 4 game rooms in the area: the Lion’s Den in LaBelle, Let It Roll in Clewiston, Pennies from Haven in Moore Haven and the Pyramid in Lehigh Acres. Richard is survived by his wife Kathleen (K.C.) Stanley-Lynn of the home; his sons Richard J. Lynn and wife Kimberly of Kansas City, MO, David J. Lynn and Darlene of Seymour, MO and Wolfgang J. Lynn student at UCF; his daughters Katherine (K.C.) Lynn of Lake Worth, FL and Charlie A. Lynn of the home; his grandchildren Kari (Lynn) Tomlinson and husband Jeremy, Sparkle, Crystal, Richard (Ricky) and Joseph (Joey) Lynn of Kansas City, MO; his great-grandchildren Chloe, Amelia and J ack Tomlinson of Grain Valley, MO; sisters Celia Irwin and husband Marty and Virgie Holberg and husband Dave; mother in-law Mary Bernadine Mendon-Stanley; brother in-law Joe Stanley (UPS) and 15 other brother and sister in-laws; over 30 nieces and nephews; and his furry “monochromatic pup”, Rocky; as well as many, many friends. What will be missed most about Richard or “Dad”, the man who believed in eating dessert rst w as his white t-shirt, whistling, cheating at cards, long jokes and quest for life. He will live on throughallwhomhetouched. Simonsita O. Villarreal, 68LaBELLE — Simonsita O. Villarreal of LaBelle passed away October 2, 2014 in Lehigh A cres.

Veterans living on the western side of Hendry/Glades will be eligible to transfer to take advantage of the close proximity of the local clinics. If a veteran is already enrolled at a VA facility and wants to transfer care to another V A facility, for instance, a local vet currently enrolled at Bay Pines, wishes to go to the Hendry-Glades clinic, they must contact the local facility. Staff there can download the veteran's information and coordinate appointments as appropriate. When all information needed to determine eligibility is available at the new VA facility, the process can be completed via phone. The clinics will take advantage of webbased medicine using a secure web camera in a Telehealth connection. When a situation calls for it, the veteran may use non-VA health care for specialty services, Ms. Waterhouse said. Those services are authorized by the VA, which then manages and monitors them. At the commission meeting Chairman Karson Turner asked Ms. McKillop to reach out to coordinate with Broward and Dade counties for veteran serv ices. He said funds are needed to improve veteran services and protect our v ets, as well as the right legislation an issue he wants to get local lobbyists inv olved in. In a related issue, commissioners discussed attracting volunteer drivers to transport veterans to medical appointments. Commissioner Janet Taylor was in the process of helping to get several certi ed. Veterans Service Of cer Dave Abney said that, as of October 1 the county took over transport of veterans to VA facilities using the DAV van driven by volunteers. Volunteer drivers receive per diem food expenses and may only drive 4-6 hours per day. Volunteers must undergo background checks and health screenings.

Submitted photo/ Mel KarauRotaryLindsey Sampson, Director Lee County Solid Waste Department explained the success of the 25year cooperative relationship that Hendry and Lee Counties have enjoyed relating to the management of both counties’ solid waste. This relationship was built using the Interlocal Government Agreements rst signed by the counties in 1990 and 1991. The result is that both counties share in the use of the following award-winning facilities: A Waste to Energy Facility (WTE) capable of continuously producing 58 Megawatts of clean, renewable electricity from the combustion of 1836 tons of garbage per day. A modern double-lined land ll for ash and solid waste disposal with leachate collection and ground water monitoring. The land ll also serves as disposal back-up if there are operational problems at the WTE. Two transfer stations in Hendry County to ef ciently transport the Hendry recycling material and solid waste to the appropriate processing plants in Lee. A successful composting facility in Hendry County that produces Class AA fertilizer using yard waste and biosolids as feedstock. This cooperative relationship between Hendry and Lee Counties is projected to continue for at least the next 25 years, and very possibly much longer. Those desiring additional information about Lee/Hendry Integrated Solid Waste Management System, can contact Mr. Sampson or Ms. Schweer at the Lee County Solid Waste Department.

Submitted photo/ Bobbie SprattLMS teacher: Ms. Natalia RoseHello everyone! I’m Ms. Rose. This is my rst year teaching with LaBelle Middle School, and I’m loving every minute of it! The wonderful staff and faculty have welcomed me with open arms and big hearts—and I know I have found a home here at LaBelle Middle School. Thank you. I especially want to thank the students for accepting me and reminding me every moment of my day why I have chosen teaching as a way of life. On a personal note, I split my time between Florida, Texas, Nevada, Pennsylvania and New York (I grew up being called a military brat!), and I’ve raised three sons, Anthony, Joey and Stephen (all in their 30s now) and a daughter, Princess (17 years young and auditing college classes at NYU!). Their dad tells them they’re all bookworms just like their mom. I agree. I’m also thrilled to announce that my family has added its rst grandchild, baby Stephen. By the way, thank you all at LaBelle Middle School for your prayers and well wishes for baby Stephen. Moving on, I spent most of my early years as a costume designer and custom garment maker, producing nearly anything a client would request. I was, and still am, great at it, too! Still, I decided to let it be a hobby rather than a career, switching, instead, to teaching, where I could give more of myself to the community than any item of clothing could ever convey. I’m eternally proud of myself for making that change, as I see the meaning in that choice each day in the faces of the students and coworkers that tells me that what I do at LaBelle Middle School is unequivocally valued and appreciated. With that in mind, over the past ten years, I’ve been asked many times why I chose to teach in the subject area of Special Education (ESE). My answer is pretty much the same each time: I tell them, “Special Education’s where I’m needed the most and my skill-set is invaluable.” Although I’ve spent the past two decades growing in and through education to secure a solid knowledge base in English, Biology, Middle Grades Curriculum, Elementary Education, and even Pre-K Education, I focus my attention on giving that extra support to my students in my ESE classes to help ll the progress gaps in the general education curriculum that ESE learning opportunities and environments provide. So, I will stay that course, and as Mr. Kenneth Pickles reminds us each day: “Adapt, Adjust, and Overcome.” Thus, with a strong and committed education team, I’m a key element in bridging those education gaps. 12 Caloosa Belle October 9, 2014 Submitted photo/ Tracie BoonePet of the WeekOctober is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and Caloosa Humane Society is having a Benchwarmer Adoption Special to help our dogs who have been riding the pine for more than 6 months get into the game of family life.

The girls team won second place in their race. Facing stiff competition from Sebring and teams across the heartland of Florida the Cowboys and Cowgirls prevailed. The boys team is moving ever so closer to their goal of winning their district this year. Congratulations to both the boys and girls teams as they have endured one wet and soggy running season so far. Junior Pro is staring its 47th year. It’s come a long way since Don Pratt at Gulf Oil took a truck rim, welded a pole to it and added a back board so LaBelle kids could play basketball.

In uenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. "Getting vaccinated is the single best way to protect yourself and your family against in uenza," said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John H. Armstrong. "I encourage all Floridians to get your u v accination before Halloween, wash your hands often and stay home when you are sick." Everyone aged six months and older should get the u vaccine. Vaccination to prevent in uenza is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from in uenza, such as pregnant women, children under the age of 5 and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease). It can take up to two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against in uenza virus infection. In the meantime, you are still at risk for getting the u. That is why it is important to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the u season really gets under way. Symptoms of the u may include headache, fever, severe cough, runny nose or body aches. Contact your health care provider immediately if symptoms appear. The Florida Department of Health offers the following prevention tips: Get vaccinated every year since u viruses change. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth since germs are spread this way. Avoid close contact with sick people. If you or your children are sick with a u-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, unless you need medical care. Check with your healthcare provider, local pharmacies and your local county health department to see where u vaccine is available.
