For the third year in a row, the VegHeads 4-H youth club will be gifted tens of millions of seeds by Rural King of Bonita Springs. As one of their community service projects, the club sorts the donated seed packets, creates a variety pack, then provides it to the public at no charge.
Beginning August 7th, their free Fall vegetable seeds will be available at Veterans Park Rec Center at 55 Homestead Road South in Lehigh Acres. For Rec Center hours or directions, call 239-369-1521.

A father and his two adult sons love drinking beer together. The two sons start removing the bottle of Miller out of dad’s hand and replacing it with the likes of Sierra Nevada, and Dogfish Head.
The result took the three men deep into the exploration of the world of beer.
Nick the oldest son was in the Army. Jacob the younger son was working in Denver. Mike the dad, was owner of a small business living in Lehigh Acres. Then life changes really took action in 2014. Nick got out of the Army came back to Lehigh. Jacob started a family and thought it would be best to be close to home, moved back to Lehigh Acres. We built a business plan and headed into the brewing business.

There’s still a lot more summer to go, and health experts have some tips for those who are going to spend time away from home: Don’t stray too far away from healthy eating habits you may have developed.

One of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt.

America’s addiction to opioid-based painkillers and heroin just got exponentially more dangerous than ever. The most potent painkiller on the market, prescribed by doctors for cancer treatment, is being made illicitly and sold on the streets, delivering a super high and, far too often, death.
The drug, fentanyl, has been around since the 1960s. Its potency works miracles, soothing extreme pain in cancer patients who are usually prescribed patches or lozenges. But it can also kill.
Fentanyl made headlines when it was identified as the cause of music legend Prince’s death.
Some drug dealers trick addicts by combining fentanyl with other drugs, like heroin, because it’s cheaper.
The drug can be taken as patch or pill but is usually abused intravenously.

On June 13, the Dixieland Jazz Band gave their first performance at the Hope Care Center in Lehigh Acres. When the band members started showing up, they were worried that they would be too loud for our guests but were reassured that they were welcome.
The band started in the first wing, where two family members sat at a back table. As they set up, our volunteers started walking from room to room offering cake and ice cream to the residents and families. Staff members closed the doors to reduce the volume a little, but as soon as the band started playing, doors started reopening. Family members came out with big grins on their faces.

Amazon said on Friday that it had agreed to buy the upscale grocery chain Whole Foods for $13.4 billion, as the online retailer looks to conquer new territory in the supermarket aisle.
For Amazon, the deal marks an ambitious push into the mammoth grocery business, an industry that in the United States accounts for around $700 to $800 billion in annual sales. Amazon is also amplifying the competition with Walmart, which has been struggling to play catch-up to the online juggernaut.
