By Geoffrey Ionescu en-USCaloosa Belle After living and working as an artist in the hustle and bustle of New York for 20 years, en-USChristopher Robin Obetz decided it was en-US time to slow things down. And he found the en-US perfect companion to accompany him on en-US his new adventure in LaBelle. My parents are getting older and I want en-USed to create a special way for us to spend en-UStime together, Chris explains, I got the idea en-US of buying a tugboat because its sturdy and en-US solid and it only goes slow, and that is what I en-US needed most at the time. I went on Craigslist and saw that someone was selling a 26 foot en-UStugboat in LaBelle. Mind you, at the time I en-US had absolutely zero nautical abilities whaten-US -en-US soever.en-US But life is an adventure! So I ended up en-US in LaBelle, at a house with a red barn on the en-US Caloosahatchee River. The carpenter that en-US was selling the boat stored it in the red barn, en-US and as soon as he opened the barn doors, I en-US was staring at the words Little Toot on the en-US bow of the little tug boat, and it was love at en-US rst sight! Obetz says.en-US The author of Little Toot, Hardie Gramaten-US -en-US ky, was a senior animator at Walt Disney Studios for six years before writing the Little Toot stories. According to Chris it was des en-US-en-US tined to be, two Disney Characters meeting; en-US Christopher Robin and Little Toot. en-US I create mixed media assemblage, en-US Chris goes on, and the ongoing theme in en-US my artwork which is pervasive in my whole en-US life is forgotten beauty found, which directen-US -en-US ly relates to me nding Little Toot and how I en-US see the world.en-US In a way, Little Toot saved my life as en-US much as I saved his, Chris explains, my en-US artwork has always been based on creating en-US beauty out of what is lost and forgotten.

Caring support network. tle Toot was abandoned in the barn, and I at the time had some personal issues in my life, so we saved each other. He slowed me down to six knots to get a better appreciation of life. Because instead of going from A to Z as fast as possible Little Toot forced me to go only six knots, and the slower you go the more you appreciate the beauty in the world around you. With the help of Little Toot, I started the Little Toot Foundation, which gives me the chance to follow my own dreams in helping other people reach theirs. The Lit tle Toot Foundation strives to be the wheel house from which children, their families and friends can learn to become their own story tellers and artists. Together with the Freedom Waters Foundation we take kids with serious illness, disabilities and other special needs out on the water with Little Toot, which makes them and their families, at least for a few hours, forget about their issues. Although we cant cure their illness, I can help put a smile on their face for a day, and that is what this is all about for me, Chris says with a smile on his face. Hurricane Irma Right before Irma hit last year Little Toot and I were almost ready to go on the water together, Chris says. This was last Septem ber and I was ready to start Tooting, then Irma came. Little Toot stayed behind in the repair dock to sit out Irma in Alva. The second day after Irma came right through Alva, I went back to check on Little Toot. I couldnt even get down to the marina with my car, so I had to walk through the waist-deep water to get there. I wasnt even thinking about the dan gerous electrical wires and snakes that could be in the water, I just wanted to get to Little Toot. I turn the corner and the rst thing I see is Little Toot smiling at me with his big bow. The whole barn roof was ripped off, except for the piece of roof right above Little Toot. Little Toot survived Irma to help others, Chris says. The next step for Chris is writing the of cial sequels to the Little Toot childrens books: I will be writing the sto ries and my photography will be the basis for the illustrator to draw the scenes for the childrens books, which I am very excited about! Hardie Gramatkys daughter who I am very close friends with gave me per mission to write the ofcial sequel to the Lit tle Toot books and start the Little Toot Foun dation. I simply want Little Toot to bring smiles and joy to all he meets. Through his wheelhouse lives will change and dreams will come true. Together with the LaBelle Downtown Re vitalization Corporation captain Christopher Robin named November 16 the ofcial Little Toot Day in LaBelle. Everyone is invited on November 16 at the docks at the Barron Library in Down town LaBelle to welcome Little Toot and meet captain Christopher Robin. LaBelle El ementary second and fourth grade kids are outdoing themselves by creating a special welcome for Little Toot and Mayor David Ly ons will ofcially proclaim Little Toot Day at 10 a.m. See you November 16 on Little Toot Day!

Any comments they provide will be con sidered and incorporated into the proposed comprehensive plan language, if appropri ate, and presented to the county board later for adoption. According to the economic impact state ment provided by FPL: The facility will provide direct and indirect economic ben ets to the county, including benets from increased local expenditures for goods and services during its construction and opera tion. Approximately 200 jobs will be gener ated during its sixto 10-month construction period. Use of local labor will be encour aged, where possible. Once the solar project is in service, it will pay taxes for the remain der of its economic life, which is expected to be more than the taxes currently paid on the land in its current use of citrus farming. No more than 70 percent of the site will be taken up by power generating facilities, and a minimum of 30 percent will be open space, either left in native vegetation or land scaped. Solar panels will be allowed to rise no more than 20 feet off the ground. Once the plant is built, it will be unmanned except for occasional maintenance and monitoring visits. Agricultural uses (although not citrus production) still will be allowed on parts of the property not in use for power genera tion, and an educational/visitor center facili ty also may be built. For this development, FPL will reap the benet of a property tax exemption the Flor ida Legislature enacted in 2017 for renew able energy source devices that are installed after Jan. 1, 2018; the company will not pay taxes on 80 percent of the assessed value of the power generating improvements made to the property. The staff report pointed out, however, that there is no comparable tax break for three previously approved FPL power gener ating facilities in Hendry County: the Hendry Solary Energy Center and Hendry County Clean Energy Facility, both located on CR 833 south of CR 846; and the FPL Hammock Solar Energy Center, located off Sears Road. Planning and Community Development Director Margaret Emblidge said, We wont know how much the value will be until theyve actually completed their construc tion. Commissioner Michael Swindle said he wanted to make a statement and get our board to chime in here, if they feel it nec essary. Mr. Swindle said: I still have a bruised kidney over the beating we took from FPL on a large tract of land in the southern part of the county. I am super-excited that FPL is in this county. ... I want to see this project happen (and) more projects happen; but I want to see some tangible returns on in vestments that I still have a bruised kidney from the beating that we on this dais took for months to make this possible, rather than taking property that we are not going to see full benet from and developing it and transforming it before the other property is developed. Commissioner Karson Turner replied: I cant speak for other commissioners, but I think you probably have a 5-0 vote of sup port on that, Commissioner Swindle. And I think its a great time to ask for an update as it relates to the south county project on that piece down there because we were raked over the coals. And I think youve seen noth ing but a unanimous vote of support when we conduct business with FPL and welcome (the company) with open arms. While it was noted that construction is expected to begin within one to two years, an update on that progress was promised.

Marvin Ruble, a Vietnam Veteran, the Commander of the VFW of LaBelle and the 1st Vice of the American Legion of La Belle was honored by being selected to be on the Collier Honor Flight, Saturday, Octo ber 20th. Together with 75 other Veterans, Marvin Ruble ew to Washington to visit the monuments. It was a good, solemn thing for me, Marvin says, at rst I was a little reluctant because I dont feel like a hero, my brothers that gave their lives are the real heroes. The heroes are on that wall in Washington, those are the real ones. I even got the see the White House and the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier, that was very impressive, Marvin explains. I was stationed in Germany rst but asked for a transfer to Vietnam. My older broth ers had been there and I didnt want them to outdo me, Ruble says jokingly. I spent thirteen months in Vietnam as a combat en gineer and a year in Korea after that. When we came home from visiting the monuments in Washington we received such a warm welcome I couldnt believe it. Especially seeing my three little grandbabies after a day like that. I didnt really know people liked us, because when we came back from Vietnam, we did not receive such a warm welcome. We got spit on and called all sorts of names. This Honor Flight really helped me get closure. Of course in a way, you never get closure from something like that, but the way they treated us that day really made me feel like I actually was a hero. Ruble Continued From Page 1 We at Grace Baptist Church wish to thank Sheriffs Ofce and the local Fire Department for there great help with our initial Family Fun Day. The ofcer and rst responders were very kind, helpful, informative, gener ous, and fun. They were the hit of the day. We at Grace Baptist appreciate your efforts immensely.

Speak Out By Dale Conyers Caloosa Belle The United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties kicked off their 2018-2019 Hendry & Glades Campaign on October 25 at Hope Connections in LaBelle. The goal for this year is $334,900. The mon ey raised will be distributed to 28 Partner Agencies and 64 programs right here in Hendry and Glades counties. United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties is a fund-raiser and distributor but its also much more than that. The critical needs of our communi ty require more than just quick xes. In this new era, we must work together with our partners in the community to realize a shared vision for change. In turn, we allow for new partners, new collaborations, and new resources, while bringing our commu nity together to focus on issues and build solutions that will continue to improve lives. No single group can address the complex problems that matter most. In Hendry and Glades counties, United Way partners with 28 agencies that provide over 60 programs in the community to address the issues that matter most in our community by improv ing lives and delivering meaningful results, Lisa Sands, Hendry/Glades Manager, LaBelle United Way House Coordinator.

Margaret England updated everyone on the work being carried out by the Unment Needs Coalition for the long term recovery from Hurricane Irma. Marci Van DHuynslager of the Clewiston Police Department spoke about the Alloca tions process: The Allocations process is the cornerstone of our United Way. It ensures scal and program accountability for all agencies receiving United Way funds while meeting the social services needs of the com munity. In the process, volunteers challenge each agencys effectiveness at providing ser vices, review the need for those services in the region, and analyze the impact of United Way funding in meeting those needs. Local Volunteers in Hendry and Glades Counties are divided into ve teams and review agen cies throughout the community. This years Pacesetter results were an nounced by Mali Gardner, Campaign CoChair and Lisa Sands. This years Pacesetters are: Glades School District Employees $1,656 Hendry School District Employees $8,593 City of Clewiston Employees $3,380 Johnson-Prewitt $7,000 Monsanto $10,000 RCMA Glades $696 Verandah $2,500 Florida Community Bank $1,500 US Sugar $10,000 Hilliard Brothers $44,000 First Bank Employees $2,700 The Pacesetters moved the United Way 50 percent closer to their goal.

Community Briefs By Cliff Avery en-USSpecial to the Caloosa Belle I think most people have read the scripture Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel en-USof Jesus Christ baptizing them in the name of en-US the Father Son and Holy Spirit. In theory we all agree that this should be done by every Christian. Many times we en-USlacked opportunity. Here is an opportunity en-US knocking at your door. Each Saturday morn ing at 10:30 a.m. we go out to areas of La Belle and knock on doors and invite people en-USto come to know Christ. We go out 2 x 2 or en-US sometimes by three and share the gospel. You en-US may choose to be a silent partner just listen to en-US Gods wonderful plan of salvation or you may en-US take an active role in sharing of the gospel. en-US You do not need to be attending our church en-US to participate. You can pass out your own en-US literature. We are in desperate need of those peo en-USple that are bilingual because many Spanish en-USspeaking families lack a clear witness be cause of our limited language abilities. You may ask what gospel are you shar en-USing? It is found in 1 Corinthians 15: 1-5 en-USNow, brothers and sisters, I want to remind en-US you of the gospel I preached to you, which en-US you received and on which you have taken en-US your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, en-US if you hold rmly to the word I preached to en-US you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 en-US For what I received I passed on to you as of en-US rst importance : that Christ died for our sins en-US according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was en-US buried, that he was raised on the third day ac cording to the Scriptures If this sounds interesting to you please call 6750900.

Park project supports local veteran By Nikki Yeager Special to the Caloosa Belle The Veterans Park began as a project of the three veterans organizations in LaBelle, the Amer ican Legion, VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and DAV (Disabled American Veterans). Originally they sold bricks to help fund the park, along with community donations, the park became a reality. Trees and plantings bring the park together along with special features and seating. The park is maintained by the City of LaBelle. The Veteran or ganizations came together and visualized a Wall with names of Veterans to be a feature of the park. Veterans Day, Nov. 11, is to be the Veterans Day Grand Opening Ceremony featuring the Wall and the 1934 Bell donated by a city resident in memory of her veteran husband. Under the direction and vision of Ramiro Rodri guez, the Hendry/LaBelle Recreation Director and youngest member of the rst Hispanic Family to become the Pioneer Family for the 2018 Swamp Cabbage Festival, many local businesses, organi zations and individuals are working together as a team, volunteering time, services, supplies, equipment, sod, plants and all the many, many details. We are looking to bring even more of the community together as our working TEAM. Come check out the project that is already in progress. YOU can be come a part of bringing our community together for our Veterans. It is exciting to watch the progress with so much time and dedication being a part of this beautifying project. Support our Veterans, become a part of the progress. Call 863-673-4404 to join our team! Thank you for all you do for our community and each other as local businesses and organizations.
