It took a couple checks for ve-year-old Brooke Miller to realize it really was her dad standing there in the lunchroom, but when she did she broke into a run to get to him. Brandon has been in the Navy for eight years and is currently stationed at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor in Washington State. Brooke and her three-year-old sister Lilly, along with their mother, Ashley, have been in LaBelle just since June. Dad has orders for the USS Iwo Jima at Mayport next April. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle After 29 years as Hendry County Tax Collector, Peggy Hampton has decided to retire as of November 30. She said she’s just ready to move on. The Governor will appoint someone to ll her seat until the 2016 election. It was January 1, 1985, when she took of ce, succeeding Mildred Lewis. She had worked at the Tax Collectors Of ce for a while in the ‘70s, then went into banking at First Bank, and at Federal Land Bank (now Farm Credit). When she was approached by the Democratic Committee to run for the ofce, Peggy said she knew it was “risky,” but she was young and ready for a challenge. Throughout her tenure she has enjoyed working with people, she said, as well as the challenge of modernizing the of ce. She said she has particularly bene ted from good relationships with Clerks of Court Charlotte Fitzsmmons and Christine Pratt. She recalls only having one computer for taxes and even manually typing in some documents very time consuming and tedious work. The Tax Collectors Of ce isn’t just about “taxes.” The of ce has several departments which include licenses: driver licenses, occupational licenses, hunting and shing licenses, license plates, titles and vessel titles/ renewals. The Driver’s License Bureau is a real challenge, she said, and costly to operate. When the state decided to close the Drivers License Bureau in Hendry County, Peggy volunteered to take it over because she did not want to see local residents do without. Since Glades County does not have a Driver License Division, and the larger surrounding counties (including Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Lee) have such a high demand that it’s often easier to come here rather than to their home county. It’s not unusual for people to have to wait in long lines to renew their driver’s license. Of course, the of ce also collects taxes for all county districts. Over the years, the county budget has grown from $5 million in 1985 to $50 in 2014 and the work has grown right along with it. At the same time, budget cuts always brought her the most headaches, she said, Hampton resigning as Tax Collector Peggy Hampton October 24, 2014 – The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) has of cially released a Fair Food label to help shoppers identify which tomatoes come from ethical farms. The label will be available to all grocery stores and restaurants that participate in the Fair Food Program. Participants in the Program pay a small premium when they buy Florida tomatoes, with the premium going to increase wages for farmworkers. They also commit to a worker-created Code of Conduct to ensure safe working conditions and prevent forced labor, sexual harassment and child labor in the elds. The Fair Food Program has been called “the best workplace monitoring program in the US,” in the New York Times and “one of the great human rights success stories of our day,” in the Washington Post. “We have waited nearly ve years before revealing this label to the world today,” said Cruz Salucio of the CIW. “Over those years, we have been doing the hard, day-by-day work of building the Fair Food Program in Florida’s elds — educating workers about their rights, investigating complaints, and identifying and eliminating bad actors and bad practices — so that today we can stand behind the fair conditions and effective monitoring process that this label represents,” continued Salucio. “We couldn’t be more proud of this laFair Food label releasedSee Resign — Page 2 See Label — Page 2

It symbolizes the new day for workers in agriculture that we, as farmworkers and in partnership with consumers across the country, have fought so hard to make real.” Whole Foods and Compass Brands, a major presence on university campuses, w ill be the rst members of the Fair Food Program to display the label in their stores and dining facilities. The label is a product of the Fair Food Program, which was created out of the success of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW)’s Campaign for Fair Food. There are currently 12 retail food giants participating in the program, including Subw ay, McDonald’s, Whole Foods, Chipotle, and Walmart. The founders of the CIW were recently honored with the Clinton Global Citizen A ward, presented by Eva Longoria. Longoria has been a longtime supporter of farmworkers, including the CIW and the Fair Food Program, and recently executiveproduced Food Chains, a documentary lm that chronicles the CIW’s Campaign for Fair Food. “The Fair Food Label is a historic moment for both consumers and for workers. In an era when there is so much interest in food, this label will allow consumers to know that the products it represents were picked by people in what has been called the ‘best working environment in American agriculture,’ on the front page of the New Y ork Times” said Food Chains director Sanjay Rawal.

Still, she was glad to be able to turn money back over to the county each year after managing to invest it, easing the county’s overall burden somewhat. She also noted that handling tax deed applications is harder now because so many residents have suffered from the economy. It’s been good working with state agencies, she said, and would advise her successor “to be patient. There’s a lot to learn.” The Department of Revenue provides training and it may even be available online these days, but she cautions that it’s good to meet with other tax collectors throughout the state. They can provide “good ideas and you will learn a lot from them.’ Peggy said she’s looking forward to retirement so she can spend more time with family, do some traveling and just enjoy the “freedom.” She will stay active and the community and plans to continue helping the Salvation Army cook its Thanksgiving dinner for 600. “It’s been an honor and privilege to serve the residents,” she said. “I will miss it.” L abel C ontinued From Page 1 RetireContinued From Page 1 Apologies for a mistake in the Paying it Forward photo of the Suncoast Credit Union in the Thursday, October 23, issue of the Caloosa Belle.

It can make you miss work, school, and activities that you enjoy. Many providers in the area offer the u shot at a reasonable rate. The money you spend getting the u shot w ill out-weigh the costs of lost time from work should y ou get the u. Remember, if you do get sick, please stay home! You don't want to take the risk of infecting others! The top three reasons you should get y our u shot: 1. Protects You and Other People Getting a u shot not only protects you from getting the u, but you are also protecting y our family, friends, co-workers, or anyone that you may come in contact with. 2. Prevent Severe Illness Over 200,000 people are hospitalized every year from u related complications. Kids under 2 years of age and adults over 65 years of age are more likely to be hospitalized from the effects of the u. 3. Prevent Flu-Related Deaths Each year, over 36,000 people in the US die because of the u. Most of these deaths are infants and people aged 65 and older. More people die from the u than from any vaccine-preventable disease. Remember to wash your hands often. Try not to touch your eyes, nose & mouth until you've washed your hands thoroughly. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Discard the tissue in the trash and wash your hands immediately afterwards. If you do get the u, stay home, get plenty of rest, drink plenty of liquids and avoid alcohol and tobacco use. Talk to your doctor about recommendations for getting a u shot. Remember that it takes up to 2 weeks to provide protection after you get the shot. Protect Yourself. Protect your family and friends. Get Vaccinated! Be healthy: Don’t let the u sneak up on you!

Cremation Arrangements by Akin-Davis Funeral Home LaBelle.Lancy GayleLABELLE — Lancy Gayle, affectionately known as Richard or to his siblings as “Bull” w as born in Quickstep, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica on Dec. 29, 1949 to Richard and Beatrice Gayle. He was the 10th of 17 children born to this union. At the age 15 he left home and moved to Old Harbour, where he lived and worked until he migrated to the United States in the early 1970s. He worked w ith U.S. Sugar on the Okeelanta estates for a number of years. He lived in Dade City, Florida working on the farms which is what he loved to do. He worked in every state from Florida to New York on various crops apples in N.Y., watermelons in Ga., and beans and cucumbers in the Carolinas just to name a few. He nally settled down in LaBelle in 1979 being a crew leader picking oranges for A. Duda and Sons. He started L&M rentals in 1981, where many migrant workers lived during the orange season, but farming was in his blood and he never gave up. He worked at A. Duda and Sons until his dream of being a farmer came to fruition. He purchased the property on G road and began his own farm. He farmed produce such as okra, collard greens, sweet potatoes, cabbage and pumpkin. He reaped and delivered to many stores in the tri-county area. Stores such as Bravo, Save A Lot, the farmer market in Immokalee and many more, just to name a few. Richard as he was called by many was loved by many, there was not one person who met him, who didn’t love him. He gave of himself to everyone, even to those he didn’t know. Everyone knew the man who sold the greens even when they didn’t know his name, if you had money, you got greens but if you didn’t have money, you got it just the same. Richard knew the Lord, he devoted his life to the Lord and insisted he wanted to be baptized before the end of the year 2013, and he was baptized in September of 2013. He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife Joyce; sons. David, Charlie and Selvin; daughters. Shelvaunda, Stacy and Eleanor. Twentyone grandchildren; ve brothers, Frederick, Abraham, Melrose, Winston and Cordel; six sisters, Adel, Joan, Miriam Ambriozine, Maxine and Idie; a host of nieces, nephews, friends and well-wishers.

How to win: When participants arrive they will purchase paddle(s) and a chip with a number matching each paddle number will be added into the draw bin.

A number is then drawn and if it matches their paddle, they won the item! If they chose not to bid on the item and their number is drawn another number will be drawn until a bidding number is drawn. You gotta play to win! Each paddle is $2. Bring in four canned goods or two nonperishable food items and get one free paddle per person.
