Hendry County has sus-
tained yet another traffic fatality
this year after a 36-year-old
LaBelle woman was involved in
a one-vehicle traffic accident in
the early morning hours of Sun-
day, June 26. Lola M. Treadwell

Memorial Hospital in critical

According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Ms. Treadwell
was westbound on River Bend
Drive, traveling at a high rate of'
speed when her 1999 Ford
Explorer left the roadway,
entering the eastbound grass
shoulder. She veered sharply to
the right and reentered the
roadway while partially rotating

It's not every 27-year-old that
gets to be an actual participant in
creating history, but that's the
way it is soldiers during wartime.
What they do affects the head-
lines of today that become the
history of nations. More impor-
tantly, they affect the lives of us all,
from the most ordinary of citizens
to the top leaders of the world.
Charlie Winn can tell you
something about that. In his own
unassuming, straightforward
way, the 1996 LaBelle High
School graduate makes the war
in Iraq personal for all of us. Peo-
ple like Charlie link the "home-

other side of the world from dou-

Sgt. Winn's dad, Mike, served.
in the'Navy during World War II in'
legendary battles like Guadal-
canal, and reenlisted to serve in
the Korean War. Growing up on
his father's war stories, Charlie
knew very early in life that he
would be in the military.
For Charlie, just getting into
the service practically took, as the
saying goes, "an act of Congress."
As a boy he had problems with
his feet, so when he tried to enlist
he was categorized as having "flat
feet." He took his case all the way
to Washington, D.C., to get the
okay just to enlist
Finally, in 1997, he made it to
basic training at Parris Island 13

only to break his foot a week
before graduating. After rehab he
actually had to be discharged and
reenlisted, going through basic

training a second time, before he
could wear the uniform he'd
always dreamed of.
The worst part of boot camp,
he says, was learning to work as a
team, coming together as a unit.
Then the Marine Corps sent
him to schools at Fort McClellan,
Alabama, and Cherry Point, NC.
He became a Military Policeman
(MP). He was sent to Okinawa,
where he was stationed for four
years "good duty," he says,
adding, "I've been just about
everywhere in Asia -Thailand,
Philippines, Korea, China, Singa-
pore except Australia." He was
in line for Australia when he was
ordered to the Middle East in Sep-
tember 2004. He arrived in
Kuwait with the 31st Marine
Expeditionary Unit (MEU), and
was attached to the Battalion
Landing Team 1/3, 1st Battalion


3rd Marines. From there they
headed into war torn Iraq.
Their main mission was recon
on major supply routes, finding
Incendiary Explosive Devices
(IEDs) along with an ordnance
disposal unit. He and his buddies
mounted 50 caliber machine
guns, 240 g machine guns, Mark
19 automatic grenade launchers
- "big guns" on Humvees.
When they found one often dis-
guised as trash or some other
innocent item they would set
up a 300-yard perimeter, stop traf-
fic, sweep the area for enemy
combatants and then secure it.
Only then could they send a robot
in to detonate the device or
remove it and blow it up. It was
pretty much a full time job Char-
lie said they found 42 mines on

The FHP report indicates'
that Ms. Treadwell had not been
wearing a seatbelt at the time of
the crash. Florida Highway
Patrol is continuing its investi-
gation into the crash.
Family and friends are in
shock over this "senseless
tragedy," saying she loved life
and was a strong, selfless per-
son. The 1987 LaBelle High
School graduate was a math
teacher at LaBelle Middle
School. She leaves behind her


husband, Douglas, and daugh-
ter, Kaler, a 13-year-old LaBelle
Middle School student. She was
the daughter of the late Don
and the late Henrietta Clark.
Mrs. Treadwell is the second
LaBelle Middle School teacher
to be involved in a fatal traffic
accident in just over a month.
On May 21, LMS counselor
Maureen Sullivan died in a
motorcycle crash in Punta

Williams aims



for city seat


"My name is Richard
Williams and technically I am
required to say that "I am rin-
ning for the position of Tax
Assessor Commissioner for the
City of LaBelle." However, he
wants peo-
ple to-real- ,
ize that the
taxes of this
community,
"which we
as citizens
are bur-
dened by,"
are handled
by the Richard
county. This Williams.
title of Tax
Assessor Commissioner is a title
only. "Don't let the title on the
ballot mislead you nto thinking
this position is responsible for
assessing the taxes in which we
all pay as residents of the city.
Perhaps this could be the first
sign of an antiquated system of
government that needs to be
addressed," he notes.
Mr. Williams explains that
his reason for running is to
attain a position as a leader in
this community. Like alrpeople,
he says, one's qualities -


whether leadership or other-
wise -are a direct reflection on
their life experience. He
believes that his life experience
makes him a legitimate candi-
date and asset to this communi-
ty as a city commissioner.
Born in Miami in 1969, he
moved to a small town with his
parents in 1972 in search of a
better place to raise a family. He
grew up on the outskirts of
LaBelle and says he had a won-
derful "Tom Sawyer-like child-
hood." He recalls spending
many days usually barefoot-
ed running the dirt floored
lanes of his families orange
grove, eating Fox grapes and
swinging off a rope into the river
with an occasional ride on a
swing bridge were the high-
lights of his childhood after-
noons.
"I bought my first fishing
pole at Jennings Hardware," he
recalls, "and my first pocket
knife at The Trading Post; ate
my first hamburger at Flora &
Ella's, and considered coconut
cream pie a national treasure. I
was raised in the presence of

Caregivers need


care, support too


ByMarkYoung
It's something more and
more Americans are going
through as the Baby Boomer
.generation begins its decline
into the golden years. For some,
it's a matter of expense and for
others, it's simply a matter of not
wanting to see their loved one
slip away into the anonymity of
"out of sight, out of mind."
Whether it's taking care of an
elderly parent, a disabled child or
any family member who begins
to succumb to age, disease or
tragedy, the burdens of dedicat-
ing one's life to the care and sup-
port of another human being
can be simply overwhelming.
The Caregivers Assistance
and Regional Education (CARE)
Program recognizes the urgency
that is spreading across the
country and will be holding a
free seminar in Hendry County


beginning July 6 and running
through July 14. The July 6 ses-
sion will open with an introduc-
tion to the program, communi-
cation/sensitivity training and
roles, responsibilities and stress-
related issues.
The following day, July 7, the
second session will delve into
key topics of understanding the
aging process and the associat-
ed illnesses and behavior
changes that aging can some-
times impact.
The program continues July
11 with its third session, which
will talk about pre-admission
emergency respite counseling
and linking local caregivers to
their community resources,
which can be invaluable to not
only the person in need of care,
but to the caregiver's health and
welfare as well. The program

just one road. Their patrol area
included several major roads from
Fallujah to Abu Graib prison. It's an
extreme job, heavy on the stress -
'"you're always watching," Charlie
says.
He and his squad did this till the
assault on Fallujah Nov. 8, 2004. It
took only four days to take the city;
but it wasn't till December that the
troops finally secured it fighting
house by house, block by block. It
was the first time Marines had
cleared a city in that way since Viet
Nam.
Before the assault, coalition
forces allowed women and chil-
dren to leave the city, while men 15-
55 had to stay. They were warned
to remain in their homes or be con-
sidered combatants. The house-by-
house operation took weeks, but
Charlie said the worst was finding
homes where civilians had been
executed by insurgents. Charlie's
unit also found seven or eight 500-
pound bombs plus caches of RPGs
and machine guns.
He recalls thev found an old
man carrying $20,000 in sequential
US $100 bills and a Mercedes wired
as IED, all rigged to be detonated.
After that, Charlie reverted back
to his MP job, picking up detainees
and escorting them to holding facil-
ities, and also assisted with EOD

Florida, located at 1200 WC Owen

CARE Program Coordinator
Danielle Musteffe said the pro-

to beleaguered caregivers.
"Basically, we can show that
there is a support system out there

disposal and vehicle recovery.
In January he was part of the
American forces providing security
for the first free election in Iraq's his-
tory. Polling stations opened at 6
a.m., he recalls, but no one showed
up right away. The insurgents tried
their best to keep voters away by
launching rockets and mortars into
the cities, but apparently the prom-
ise of freedom was stronger than
the fear of reprisals, because then a
deluge of people arrived, including
2,000 women (another unusual
event for Iraq) and that was just at
his station in avery small city.
Even Mother Nature is harsh in
that region of the world. Charlie
and his buddies also battled the 144
degree heat in Kuwait, followed by
the 19 degree temperatures in
Iraq's winter all in flat, dirty
desert- definitely not a vacation
paradise.
Still, he believes it was a good
experience. He said he learned a lot
about the country. Their interpreter,
"Jake," was a Catholic he had
always believed that all Iraqis were
Muslims. But the best experience,
he feels, "was doing the job."
Regardless of any political ques-
tions, he and his buddies were
there to help get that long abused
country on track. It's a volatile area
of the worldhe knowV;'but without
Saddam Hussein, they may have a
chance.
The insurgents have their own
agenda, he says, adding that, as sol-


for people who are in the same
boat," said Ms. Musteffe. "We link
them to community resources and
teach them how to be better pre-
pared for emergencies to have
an emergency plan in place in case
something happens to the primary
caregiver."
There are many things a care-
giver needs to understand before
taking on the massive responsibili-
ty of caring for a family member on
a full time basis. But beyond the
;medical needs and everyday needs
of the patient, it is important to fully
understand the task at hand and to
recognize when it's time for the
caregiver to receive a little care in
return.
"We show them ways they can
decrease their stress levels," said
Ms. Musteffe. "The caregiver can
actually be the one who collapses
first by being overburdened with
stress. It will begin to affect some-

Firehouse Youth
to perform July 9-11
Did you ever wonder what
happened to "Sweet Betsy from
Pike"? She ended up in the quiet
little Californy town of Muddy
Springs, where she joins the lady
townfolk in a temperance move-
ment that shuts down the local
saloon. Much to their dismay, the
saloon refuses to be run out of
town and opens a restaurant
where the saloon girls become
waitresses. While all this is taking
place the 'Bad Gang' is planning a
daring bank robbery.
The Dalmatian Youth Troupe is
presenting their summer play,
"Raisin' a Ruckus in Muddy
Springs", by Joyce Gatch and
Henry Avery, on July 9, 10, and
11. This musical comedy is being
performed by an exuberant group
of talented young people from the'
ages of 8-13.
Showtimes will be 6:30 p.m.
on Saturday, July 9 and Monday,
July 11. There will be a 2 p.m.
matinee on Sunday, July 10. Tick-


diers, they don't get into politics.
Still, a lot of the news media project
the wrong idea about the war and
what's really happening over there.
In southern Iraq, things are pretty
calm. For the first time in their lives
people have running water, elec-
tricity and freedom. American sol-
diers find ways to help the locals by
sharing medications, candy and
playing games with kids who have
to grow up way too fast. They have
to be careful, though, to prevent"
reprisals on these innocent people
by fanatic insurgents who see
intimidation as a legitimate
weapon against civilians.
Of his experiences in Iraq, Char-
lie says the most difficult part of war
was dealing with the loss of sleep.
During the assault on Fallujah
troops got just 2-3 hours of sack
time per day and the constant mor-
tar barrages escalated the stress. As
a platoon sergeant over 15 men
and women, he said; his fear was
greatest for them a heavy respon-
sibility. Although he ate well, he still
lost 30 pounds over there, he said.
He's proud to say that all "his"
Marines came back safe and-
sound.
In February, Charlie and his unit
returned to Kuwait; then in April
they returned to Thailand and Oki-
nawa. After four years, he finally set
foot back in the States on June 8 in
Seattle, beginning his leave to come
home to LaBelle. He must report to
recruiter school in San Diego July 5.


one's emotional health first and
eventually that will affect that per-
soi's physical health."
Ms. Musteffe said the caregiver
can begin to become severely
depressed and get a feeling of isola-
tion. She related one story of a
male caregiver who had not had a
break in nine years.
"He was very angry and very
bitter," she said. "It's so important
to not let yourself get to that.point.
Caregivers have to know that they
are not alone, that there is help out
there and that it's more than okay
to accept that help."
Ms. Musteffe said that caregivers
must plan time for themselves and
enroll into programs that offer the
help.
"A caregiver needs to maintain
their hobbies," she said. "They
need to stay active and so does the
loved one."

It's not the assignment he wanted
- he wants to be drill instructor -
but a good Marine accepts his
orders and does the job he's
assigned. Charlie says he'd like to
make the service his career. If that
doesn't work out for him, he'd like
to be a Florida Highway Patrolman.
After recruiter school, he hopes
to be stationed in Fort Myers after
all, it's been three years since he
was hom6. He points out that, since
9/11, all the services have been "run
ragged" with deployments.
Back home after such a long
stretch, Charlie sees the LaBelle-
Fort Myers area with new eyes "I
don't remember it being so big," he
says, adding, "I got lost going to
the mall" and noted that little kids
he knew before are almost grown
up.
While at home, Charlie has visit-
ed with his mom, Carol, grand-
mother Doris Mattice, brothers Pat
(Fort Myers) and Matthew (Lake-
land); and aunts Karen and Kathy.
Charlie said he's looking for-
ward to some less stressful duty. "I
don't want to go back," he admits,
"but I would if I was ordered to,"
then quickly adds he'd rather go
back himself than see new guys
who don't know the ropes learn
the hard way.
Has it been worth it? Charlie just
says, "It's better there now."

Program teaches kids life skills Law Offices of Roert Vau A.


Three Harmony in the Streets
counselors and two Hendry
County deputies provided lots of
fun and learning experiences for
kids at Pioneer Plantation's sum-
mer camp last week. Although
the program began in 1997, Har-
mony in the Streets is new to
Hendry County,
The program is based on two
successful programs of the Flori-
da Youth Ranches a summer
camping program and concepts
from Project Harmony, a leader-
ship program. Campers had fun
while learning leadership skills
and conflict resolution.
Perdue University senior Jen-
nifer Bolinger, a psychology
major, said Harmony in the
Streets is a special program
because it is tailored to kids who
don't normally get the summer
camp experience. She said a $1
million grant over two years from
the Attorney General pays for 12
teams to put these camps on,
partnering with local sheriff's
offices.
Shantresa King of Miami and
John Gilham of Deland are the
other Harmony in the Streets
counselors. Shantresa is a nurs-
ing student at Miami-Dade and
John is a sophomore at Daytona
Beach Community College, who
may be interested in a career in
law enforcement.
The kids are challenged to
work together, learning how to
cooperate and coordinate.
Each day the kids had a differ-
ent public'safety program that
taught them about law enforce-
ment (fingerprinting, K-9s), fire-
fighting (courtesy of the Pioneer
Volunteer Fire Department) and
EMS' job of saving lives.
With 14 traffic fatalities
already in Hendry County this
year, Coordinator of the local
Harmony in the Streets camps
Sgt. Barbara Brown (also a Road
Patrol sergeant, School Resource
Officer supervisor and Explorer
coordinator for the sheriff's
office) took time Friday to remind
campers about traffic safety. She
explained how simple things like
taking the time to buckle your

seatbelts or wearing a bike hel-
met can make the difference in
life or death. She and Deputy Mel
Brant went over rules of the road
for bicycles including: riding in
single file at the edge of the road
(not all spread out all over the
lanes) and riding on the right
hand side of the road with the
traffic (walkers should be facing
oncoming traffic). They remind-
ed the kids that bicyclists can get
tickets just like drivers. They also
went over hand signals (right and
left turns and stop) and the fact
that bicycles must stop for stop
signs.
Camp Coordinator Jennifer
Timms said she is averaging 40
kids at camp this year. How did
the campers enjoy the new pro-
gram? Here are a few of their
comments:
Jenifer Aguila, a LaBelle Chris-
tian School student, liked the
sheriff's K-9 and said she found
out that drugs "smell nasty." Jen-
nifer Oliva, a 12-year-old LMS stu-
dent enjoyed the games while

Arthritis education and prevention


The 1 in 3 Florida adults that suf-
fer from arthritis have some hope
for information and possible relief
now that the Florida Arthritis Edu-
cation and Prevention Act has
become law. Governor Jeb Bush
signed Senate Bill 1450 into law on
Tuesday, June 14th.
The legislation, sponsored by
Senator Ron Klein (D-Delray Beach)
and Representative Anne Gannon
(D-Delray Beach), with co-sponsor-
ships from Rep. Holly Benson (R-
Pensacola) and Representative
Greg Ever (R-Milton) will help foster
a statewide program that promotes
public awareness and increases
information concerning the causes
of arthritis, the importance of early
diagnosis and effective ways of pre-
venting- and managing- arthritis.
The bill requires that the-Florida
Department of Health establish,
promote and maintain an arthritis
prevention and education program
to raise public awareness and to
better educate and train health pro-
fessionals.
"We are very pleased that the
Florida Department of Health,
already a good partner in this activi-


ty, will now have a stronger empha-
sis on this important disease that
impacts so many Florida citizens of
all ages," said Anne Forrest, of
Bradenton, President of the Florida
Chapter Arthritis Foundation. The
Florida Chapter of the Arthritis
Foundation was a primary support-
er of this legislation, Forrest
expressed sincere-appreciation to
Senator Klein and Representatives
Gannon, Benson, and-Evers, along
with their staff members, especially
Kelly Skidmore, an aide in Senator
Klein's office, who has severe
arthritis herself "Kelly does not fit
the public stereotype of a person
with arthritis," commented Forrest,
"as she is young and active, but she
is like many Florida residents of all
ages, who battle this chronic ail-
ment daily. We deeply appreciate
what she has done for others."
Florida, Chapter Regional -Exec-
utive Directors were also quick to
express their appreciation of their
legislative team and to the Gover-
nor for support of this new public
health policy emphasis. Jay Bur-
nell, Executive Director of the
Southwest Florida Region of the

Arthritis Foundation, said "In Flori-
da, arthritis currently costs more
than $1.3 billion each year in direct
medical costs and an additional $4
billion in lost productivity. Approxi-
mately 45 percent of those,in Flori-
da with arthritis are younger than
age 65, including children. Arthritis
is a chronic disease or condition
that affects both the young and the
.old and is the number one cause of
disability in our nation. Legislative
actions such as this are key to the
Public Health efforts of the Arthritis
Foundation and, indeed, all Floridi-
ans with arthritis are the beneficiar-
ies of this team effort."
"We still need public support
and we look forward to working
with the Florida Department of
Health seek public and private
funds for this increased activity,"
concluded Forrest. She urged any-
one interested, to contact and sup-
port their local Arthritis Foundation
Office. For more information please

Let's teach children
respect. Almost every major
election one of the candidates
speaks up for money for better
education, larger schools,
more teachers, better pay, etc.
Not once have they men-
tioned some of the most
important issues as beginning
in the first grade and upward
teaching children to first
respect their parents and why
teaching them to respect all
animals domestic and wild.
All animals deserve to be
treated with respect. They are
God's creations and gift to
men, to have them neutered
or spayed to keep down over
population and starvation and
disease. I feel we're long over-
due in teaching our children
to respect both older people


and animals, our wildlife, also
the smaller creatures such as
butterflies, moths, lizards, etc.
All are very important to the
earth, one man a while back
was complaining about a cat
that was dumped off on his
place. Kill the cats was his
plea, agreed with him, also
two boys were tossing kittens
in bags into traffic. How sick!
If these people were taught
in school, as well as their
home, when they were chil-
dren they probably would
have a very different attitude.
I'm trying to emphasize the
importance of educating our
children on these matters
while yet young. Respect par-
ents and older people, respect
all animals and nature.

Fourth of July: Our 229th birthday


By Barbara Oehlbeck

On July 4, 1776, representatives
of 13 British colonies in North
America adopted an eloquent
statement setting forth the reasons
for declaring their independence
from Great Britain. The public did
not learn the actual words of the
Declaration until July 8. The final
version was called a "unanimous"
declaration, but the word "unani-
mous" would not be properly used
until July 19, when the New York
delegation to Congress, which had
not voted on July 4, reported that it
favored the Declaration. Congress
then ordered a copy of the Declara-
tion engrossed on parchment and
signed by all members of Congress.
Fifty members signed the docu-
ment on August 2,1776.
It was Ernie Pyle who wrote: "I
write from a worm's-eye view."
Well, unlike
Mr. Pyle, I find myself writing
from the soul's eye-view, which
may or may not be explainable and
never to be compared with Mr. Pyle
who won a Pulitzer prize in 1943
for his reporting to millions of
Americans during World War II.
With careful humor and rare sensi-
tivity he wrote how their boys lived
and fought and died as
soldiers...painting word pictures


IS NOT FREE7"7


that portrayed more than photo-
graphs.
There are some who believe
with good reason, that patriotism
cannot be taught. Unfortunately it
seems painfully true that we in this
country are going backwards
instead of forward in "Patriotism
101" although dramatic improve-
ments have been observed since 9-
11...yet, even that seems to be
waning.
And there are those who firmly
believe, that basically, this "lack" is
because we've been given, or have
taken, too much, too soon, and
with too little effort.
There is a disturbing indiffer-
ence, casualness and thoughtless-
ness where patriotism is con-
cerned that is far more dangerous


than any explosives that have ever
been developed.
Perhaps it can be best said by
one who was not born to all our
benefits and privileges. He is Ken
Downing who came to Florida
from Guatemala 20-some years
ago and became a citizen. "The
first thing I did when I got back
from Miami from the ceremony in
which I became a citizen, was to go
straight to the voter registration
office in Hendry County." Mr.
Downing lives and works in South-
west Florida.
"I am a relative newcomer to
this country. It seems that most
everybody ignores, or acts like they
don't want to recognize that even
as we remember 9-11, we live in
one of the last frontiers of tranquili-
ty in the greatest country in the
world.
"What you take for granted
does not exist in most parts of the
world. Yet, instead of counting
blessings, most are complaining
and asking for more. It has been
said that "too much democracy" is
like a child having all the candy he
can eat, not only does he get sick,
but he loses his wish for sweets.
"If we are to preserve our way
of life, everyone is going to have to
work a little harder for the good of
all and not expect a few to do it all.


Democracy doesn't just happen, it
is people who make it work. Too
much is being done by too few for
too many.
"Everybody complains about
public officials and yet the majority
do not vote.
"Everybody expects public ser-
vants to be saints, when we live in a
real world.
"Everybody complains about
law enforcement, and yet few real-
ize the restrictions law enforcers
are working under.
S"As an example: If we look close
to home, we see how so many of
our fine churches have been split
because of internal bickering. And
the same is true of community
organizations which could and
should be cohesive rather than divi-
sive.
"Let us resolve to work together.
Let us criticize, but make it con-
structive. Let us recognize that
those in a position of leadership in
our country are trying, and we owe
them a chance. This is democracy
and I feel we should unrelentingly
fight for it.
"As strange as it may seem, it
sometimes take an outsider to rec-
ognize something you yourself
don't see: We are living in the great-
est country in the world! We must
preserve it!


As the South Florida area
grows and changes, the horse
population is increasing. More
people seeking the rural lifestyle
are purchasing horses for pleas-
ure riding. Some just have them
as pets or "four legged lawn
mowers." Others are becoming
interested in raising and show-
ing horses.
Horse owners follow their
own set of safety rules'for prop-
erly housing, handling and rid-
ing horses. But those who share
a neighborhood with horse
owners should also take care
when interacting with horses.
Horses and humans can easi-
ly co-exist safely as long as the
humans take the time to under-
stand a little about their eques-
trian neighbors.
For example, if you are out
walking and see a horse next to
a fence, it may be tempting to go
over and pet the horse. But that
is not a good idea unless you
first ask the owner. Some friend-
ly-looking horses may not want
you to pet them. Horses can
bite. Likewise, never enter a pas-
ture without the owner's per-
mission, even if the horse is not
near the fence.
If you are a dog owner, obey
the county's leash laws which
require you to keep the dog
under control. This means that if
your dog is outside your house,
it must be in a fence or on a
leash. If your dog is loose and
gets into a pasture, you might


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


find yourself liable for any
injuries to the horses, cattle or
other livestock.
Horses can tolerate loud,
steady noises, but may be star-
tled by sudden, loud noises. So if
you are driving a car, ATV or
other motorized vehicle near a
fenced horse or near someone
on horseback, don't "rev" the
engine or honk the horn. A sud-
den, loud noise could spook the
horse, and a frightened horse is,
very unpredictable. It could try
to jump a fence or bolt into the
path of a vehicle.
Don't litter and don't let oth-
ers in your car throw trash on
the roadsides. Cans and glass
bottles are .a-hazard for horses
and for people who walk along
the roadside.
EDITORS NOTE: Before mak-
ing any change to your diet or
exercise program, consult your
doctor. This is especially impor-
tant if you are on any prescrip-
tion medicines. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."

New law to fight unemployment fraud


Governor Bush recently signed
HB 1693 into law, strengthening
the Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion's (AWI) and law enforcement
partners' ability to aggressively pur-
sue and prosecute Unemployment
Compensation fraud.
The legislation provides penal-
ties and fines for individuals:
Establishing a fake business
by submitting fraudulent records
relating to the business, including
tax and wage reports;
Entering fraudulent data into a
computer system of the agency or
its tax collection service provider;
Using computer facilities of
the agency or its tax collection
provider without authorization;
Deliberately altering or
destroying computer information
or files; or


*Stealing financial instruments,
data, or other assets.
"Expanded coordination and
increased prosecution of unem-
ployment compensation fraud will
result in greater recovery of taxpay-
ers' dollars and will provide a deter-
rent to individuals contemplating
such schemes," said Susan
Pareigis, Director, Agency for Woik-
force Innovation. "We intend to
use the additional tools in this legis-
lation to continue our aggressive
protection of public resources in
partnership with our state and local
law enforcement colleagues," she
added.
The law allows the agency to
make all unemployment compen-
sation records relating to unem-
ployment fraud investigations avail-
able to FDLE, the states attorneys,


and the Office of the Statewide
Prosecutor for investigation and
aggressive prosecution of fraudu-
lent offenses.
In addition, the law provides for
penalties to curtail State Unemploy-
ment Tax (SUTA) dumping-the
practice of avoiding unemploy-
ment experience which impacts all
employers in a negative way.
SUTA dumping occurs when:
An employer avoids a high tax
rate by setting up one or more shell
companies and then transfers
some or all of its workforce back
and forth between the shell com-
panies to earn a lower tax rate; or
A person or entity opening a
business purchases an existing
small business which lets them
take advantage of a lower unem-
ployment tax rate for an "acquired"


business as opposed to a "new"
business.
Provisions of the bill will be
implemented by AWI on July 1,
2005.
The Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation is the lead state workforce
agency and directly administers the
state's Labor Market Statistics pro-
gram, Unemployment Compensa-
tion, Early Learning and various
workforce development programs.
Workforce development policy
and guidance in Florida is provided
by Workforce Florida, Inc. Work-
force Florida and the Agency for
Workforce Innovation are partners
in the Employ Florida network
which includes 24 Regional Work-
force Boards who deliver services
through nearly 100 One-Stop
Career Centers around the state.


Children are at high risk for skin cancer


Summer is finally here, and
more than ten million children and
young adults will pack their bags
for camp. The number of day and
resident camps in the U.S. has
grown by nearly 90% in the past 20
years, which means that more and
more children are making their
way to the great outdoors and for
long days of fun in the sun. What
many parents and camp directors
sometimes fail to remember is time
spent outdoors requires proper
protection against the suns harmful
UVrays.
Sports and outdoor activities are
daily events for children attending
camp. Unfortunately, if children
are not properly protected, the time
they spend outdoors can result in
painful sunburns, premature signs
of aging later in life and even skin
cancer.
"Just one blistering sunburn in
childhood can double the risk of
getting melanoma later in life," said


Perry Robins, MD, President of The
Skin Cancer Foundation. "That risk
can be avoided by following some
simple, sun safe guidelines."
To protect your children, the
Foundation recommends the fol-
lowing camp specific sun safety
tips:
Are counselors trained in sun
safety? UV protection should be a
regular part of training. "We
impress on counselors that they
basically have a parental role in
making sure campers are protect-
ed," said Michael Humes, director
of a particularly sun-safe camp
called Regis-Applejack in the
Adirondack Mountains of upstate
NewYork.
When are outdoor activities
scheduled? Ideally, most should be
scheduled for early morning or late
afternoon as UV is most intense
from 10a.m. to4 p.m.
Are campers directed to apply
sunscreen before going outside?


An SPF 15+ sunscreen (water-
resistant formulations are especial-
ly good) needs to be used regularly.
Campers and staff should be
instructed to bring it from home,
apply it 20-30 minutes before out-
door activities, and reapply it every
two hours and right after swim-
ming. The camp also should have a
supply.
Are campers urged to wear
protective clothing? Historically,
campers wore only a T-shirt, shorts,
and perhaps a baseball cap. We
now know that's not enough. "We
ask campers and staff to wear
broad-brimmed hats, which pro-
tect more of the face than baseball
caps do," said Humes. The Skin
Cancer Foundation also advises
wearing a long-sleeved shirt, long

pants, and UV-protective sunglass-
es. In addition, washing campers'
clothes with a laundry aid such as
SunGuard will wash a minimum of
30 UPF protection into clothing and


will last through at least 20 wash-
ings.
Is shade available? Shade
should be easily accessible. At
Camp Regis-Applejack, campers
cabins lie among tall pine trees,
and the athletic fields, beach, and
tennis court are all tree-lined.
With proper guidance, children
can learn to protect themselves and
enjoy summer fun without sacrific-
ing the health of their skin.

awareness about the prevention,
detection, and treatment of skin
cancer.

Former USSR president to visit FGCU in 2006


Florida Gulf Coast University
hosts Mikhail Gorbachev March 28,
2006, in Alico Arena as the second
speaker in FGCU's distinguished
University Lecture Series.
Gorbachev's message "Peace
in the 21st Century" focuses on
global peace in addition to environ-
mental and sustainable develop-
ment policies as a method to pro-
mote peace.
FGCU provost and vice presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Bonnie
Yegidis, who spearheaded devel-
opment of the University Lecture
Series, selected Gorbachev
because FGCU's student learning
outcome for the 2005-06 academic
year is "ecological perspective"
which emphasizes the impact of
individuals on systems, particularly


the environment.
The first parliament in Soviet
history elected Gorbachev as presi-
dent in 1990. After leaving office,
the Nobel Laureate created The
International Non-Governmental
Foundation for Socio-Economic
and Political Studies (The Gor-
bachev Foundation) in 1992 to pro-
vide in-depth analysis of the evolv-
ing social, economic and political
conditions around a globalizing
world.
Ayear later, Gorbachev became
president of Green Cross Interna-
tional, an international independ-
ent environmental organization
with branches in more than 20
countries. He also chairs the United
Russian Social Democratic Party.
According to The Gorbachev


Foundation web site,
www.gorby.ru/en, the overall
motto of the organization is
"Toward a New Civilization" and
the Foundation's aim is "to help
assert democratic values and
moral, humanistic principles in the
life of society. In a globalizing
world, the search for guidelines in
building a new, more equitable
international order is increasingly
important."
FGCU offers free tickets to the
public beginning 2006 for the one
hour lecture and question-and-
answer period. The University
posts updated information on the
University Lecture Series web site,
www.fgcu.edu/uls, as it becomes
available.
In addition to the lecture, FGCU


hosts a press conference for the
media and an intimate dinner with
Gorbachev for major donors to the
University Lecture Series.
For future programming, FGCU
is seeking a donor to endow a $2
million gift that could support the
University Lecture Series in perpe-
tuity. The Series, which this year
featured renowned author and
poet Maya Angelou, was created to
expand the world of ideas and cre-
ative expression, but FGCU hopes
to further develop it into a program
of even greater consequence for
students and the community.

Shouting praises to the Lord!
LaBelle kids from first through sixth grade were treated to 'Roof Tops' Music Camp at
Carlson Memorial United Methodist Church. About 58 children enjoyed a week's worth
of fun from 8:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. with lunch and T-shirt included, all for only $12. The
children had music, arts and craft, bible and drum classes. About 25 capable teen
helpers and adults volunteered making the Music Camp quite a hit with everyone
involved. The grand finale was a musical performance held on Friday evening.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)

your property because of a tree, the City will give you a permit to remove it.

legendary figures. I remember lis-
tening to discussions with Mr. Bur-
chard at his regular table at Flora &
Ella's; afternoons at Mrs. Mattice's;
weekends of lessons on how to
behave at Thelma Cross' house;
neighborhood lunches at Mamie
Hire's home; tractor rides with
Wayne Vaughn; and who could
ever forget football games at
Owens stadium and Mrs. Hull
keeping us kids all in line?
Mr. Williams hopes to keep
memories of a bygone age alive
and well: There were 4th of July
activities with sack races and
rodeos with greased pigs; a festival
once a year where the entire com-
munity showed up to celebrate
our existence together. "The over-
whelming presence of the Semi-
nole peoples in all their color
always fascinated me," he contin-
ued, "and I played baseball at clean
facilities, and in a nice neighbor-
hood. I was proud to be from my
town. I rode my bicycle from my
house to town often. No one ever
worried when the sun went down
because we all looked after each
other.
I was educated in the local
school system. Names like
Howard, Basquin, Dobson,
Simms, Marcum, Frierson and so
many others were my teachers. I
had wonderful friends: Tommy
Cisenaros, Kevin Mobley, Steve
Perry, Tammy Ballard, and lately
Bernard Culliver. I honor them in
the life I set out to live each and
every day. Our kids are the most
important asset we have. We need
to do better for them," he acknowl-
edged.
He recalls helping his family run
a "Mom and Pop" business which,
like so many others, closed down.
"Preserving the heritage of our
farming, and ranching families is
so very important," he says.
He graduated high school and
attended a year at Edison Commu-
nity College with the help of a car-
ing local banker. "My father lost his
job of 25 years due to corporate
greed and corruption. The working
men and women of America
deserve better," he said.
"I attended school overseas
with a focus on international busi-
ness. I got to know the cities and
cultures of many places: Singa-
pore, Dubai (in the United Arab
Emirate) and Lisbon, to name a


475 E Cowboy Way, LaBelle.

few. I can tell you from experience
ours is the greatest nation in which
to live. The American people are
the finest and most generous in the
world."
A pilot with American Airlines,
Mr. Williams feels he is a represen-
tative of the largest Airline on the
planet. As a co-pilot, he is second
in command of a $50 million air-
craft that on regular occasions
seats up to 148 souls of whom he
is responsible for the safety, securi-
ty and well being while under his
control. He has chosen not to fly
internationally so he can be in
touch with his family at any time.
"My schedule allows me to be
flexible and never gone from home
more than a few days at a time. My
career is a testament to the kids of
my small town that you can do
anything you put your mind to," he
points out
He also points to his active
involvement in the community. "I
don't have the luxury of time to be
a politician making my rounds," he
says, "there is a war going on in
every community across our
nation. We are fighting a war
against moral and ethical decay
laced with drugs and impropriety. I
ask you to join the fight. I would
rather invest what finances I can
spare in the youth of our commu-
nity than on campaign signs."
Mr. Williams is proud to say that
he hails from 'the small town of
LaBelle, Florida. He believes that
having a vision for the future of the
city he loves, caring about his com-
munity and the future of his chil-
dren is leading him into the realm
of politics and says, "I am ready to
take on that role. If chosen to lead I
will do so responsibly with honor
and dignity. It will be my honor to
serve the citizens of LaBelle, Flori-
da and Hendry County."
"I will be addressing the issues
our community is facing and there
are many, as well as giving you the
opportunity to ask me questions or
better yet put myself in direct con-
tact with your needs by calling a toll
free "Message Line." I have set up
'this message system not only as a
tool for this campaign, but it will
also carry over to be used as a
means of communication to better
stay in touch with your needs and
concerns. It will also help keep you
informed of the issues that are
being addressed at the city level,"
he said.
"Although many of you, myself
included, live our lives at a very fast
pace, we are truly living in the "age


scores at the West Glades Ele-
mentary School, Monday through
Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Job Fair in
Central Florida
Looking for a job? Meet your
next Employer at the 2nd Annual
President's Job Fair (In honor of,
and approved by, President Bush)
on July 14 from 12:00Noon-
4:00pm at the Central FL Fair-
grounds, Orlando, .FL. Presented
by Central FL Employment Coun-
cil (non-profit) & Lynx in partner-
ship with Florida ARF (Associa-
tion of Rehabilitation Facilities).
An invitation to individuals with
disabilities will be from 11a.m.-
12noon the same day. The admis-


of communication." There is no
reason that any of us should find
ourselves "out of the loop" and not
in touch with the happenings and
concerns that are taking place in
our own community. You will find
the message line number on my
five homemade campaign signs
that will be strategically located
throughout the city," he said.
"Whether you are a voting citi-
zen of the City of LaBelle or a con-
cerned citizen of our greater com-
munity, I would like to thank you
for your time and consideration in
advance. If you are new to the
realm of politics as I am, I welcome
you to the table of Democracy. I
truly feel that at no other time in the
history of our small town has it
been more important that the citi-
zenry of our community become
actively involved and participate in
not only the selection of the future
leadership of LaBelle, but also
become actively engaged in the
formation of a common vision for
the future of LaBelle. We must all
realize that, regardless of whether
or not you qualify to vote, the deci-
sions that are made by your city
council can and most likely will
have an impact on your quality of
life.
"I would also like to echo this
sentiment by saying that there are
generations of American veterans
in our community, and all over this
great land that have served and
sacrificed so that we can enjoy this
freedom of choice. At this very
moment serving under a relentless
never-setting sun, another genera-
tion of Americans stands fast and
united to help others to secure this
very right. I urge you to get
involved, stay involved, and take
part in this very important process.
May God bless them and keep
them safe."
Mr. Williams further explains

that he has no animosity toward
Bob Miller, the man he is running
against. Although he-feels there is a
natural tendency for people to
interpret a challenge for political
office as an automatic assault or
questioning of a person's integrity,
he says he holds no malice
towards any of the current leader-
ship. "I respect Bob Miller's service
to our community as a city com-
missioner for the City of LaBelle. I
recognize the commitment and
sacrifice one must make as a pub-
lic servant. What's more, I appreci-
ate and understand the impact
public service has on one's family. I
would like to take this opportunity
to publicly extend my regards and
sincere offering of best wishes to
the entire Miller family as this elec-
tion will be soon contested."
To his wife and family he says, "I
thank you for your time and sup-
port. I rest confidently in knowing
that you understand that I pursue
this honorable endeavor in the
hopes that each of you may enjoy
growing up and living your lives in
a community you will be proud to
call home. To my supporters I say
thank you also. You have humbled
me in your support of my leader-
ship and inspired me to rise to this
challenge. I will now take this chal-
lenge to task."
"I would like to offer my sincere
gratitude and thanks to Indepen-
dent newspapers and the entire
staff of the Caloosa Belle for afford-
ing myself this medium of commu-
nicating with the people of LaBelle
and Hendry County. I hope I speak
for all of your readers when I say
thank you for your fair, equitable
and responsible reporting of this
years elections."

Debate de candidates
Los candidates para ocuparel
puesto de alcalde en la proximas
elecciones del 19 de Julio han
expuesto al public su opinions
de como seran sus suntos priori-
tarios en La Ciudad de La Belle.
Randy Bengston es el candidate

desea votar mas temprano podra
hacerlo desde el 5 de julio en la
Oficina Supervisora de Elec-
ciones localizada en La Corte, el
horario sera de lunes a sabado.
desde las 8:30 hasta las 5 pm.
Estos son los principles asuntos
para los dos candidates.
Puente: Bengston dice que no
hay un plan absolute par un
puente nuevo pero La Ciudad
debe trabajar con el Departa-
mento de Transportacion en el
asunto el piensa que se deben de
usar otras rutas como alternati-
vas, la mayor Craichy argument
en contra porque ella dice que
un puente nuevo no esta en los
planes de Transportacion.
Craichy quiere conservar el cen-
tro del pueblo como esta mien-
tras Bengston piensa que es
tiempo de cambiar, de hacer
cosas nuevas.
Alcantarillado: Craichy dijo
que al principio habian pre-
supuestdo 9 millones para el.

Mayor tiempo complete:
Randy Bengston dijo que el con-
tinuara como Director de Seguri-
dad Publica pero estara dis-
puesto cuando sea necesario si
lo ocupan para asuntos impor-
tantes. Los otros empleados o si
contratan a un Manejador
pueden resolver otros proble-
mas. Craichy no esta de acuerdo
con esto, ella es mayor tiempo
completo.Segun ella La Ciudad,
no puede contratar a un Mane-
jador.
Planes Para el agua: Bengston
piensa que se debe cooperar
con los vecinos de Port La Belle,
Ford Denaud o Glades para solu-
cionar el problema porque la
plant de agua es muy vieja.
Craichy argument que lo nece-
sario es otro sistema de
tratamiento.
Policia: Los dos candidates
estan de acuerdo en que no se
paguen salaries .para dos Ofi-
ciales que cuiden La Ciudad
cuando el Departamento de Poli-
cia podria hacerlo.
Al final del debate public
Craichy dijo: "Bengston es un
buen hombre y un buen servidor
de ambulancia pero no sabe
nada de como manejar el gobier-
no de una ciudad" Por su part
Bengston agradecio los pre-
supuetsos que Craichy ha con-
seguido pero al final dijo:
"Nosotros estamos de acuerdo y
en desacuerdo, es tiempo para
un cambio y los votantes son los.
que deben de decidir

The biggest bang for the buck!


By Do ma Meister
The best deal for your money
this summer just happens to be
the Hendry-LaBelle Summer
Recreation Program. For only 30
bucks a week the children are
kept entertained with supervised
planned physical activities (out-
doors and indoors), arts and
crafts, a game room filled with
fun and educational board
games, fed a healthy lunch and
afternoon snacks, watch movies
and even taken on field trips.
Every other week on Fridays
the campers enjoy swimming at
the Immokalee Swimming Pool
for an additional $1 admission
charge. The weeks they travel by
school bus to Raymond's Roller
Rink in Ft. Myers the extra charge
is only $4 for admission and skate
rental. Every Tuesday the
campers are bused to a movie
hosted by the Assembly of God
Church on Fraser Street in
LaBelle.
At this time 100 kids are enjoy-
ing their summer days from 8
a.m. until 4 p.m. hanging out with
their friends and making new
ones. (Early and late drop offs and
pick ups are also available.)
Camp Director Augustine Ross
says the camp is full at this time,
however you may have luck being
added to the waiting list. Call 675-
675-5347 and leave a message for
Recreation Director Phil Pelletier.

shirts, and Stargazer Telecom for

During the 2004 season, each infield-
er for the Texas Rangers hit at least 20
home runs. Amazingly, only one other
team in major league history the 1940
Boston Red Sox had an infield four-
some that rang up 20 dingers apiece.
Meanwhile, Oakland's Bobby Crosby
cracked 22 homers, tied for secondmostI
ever by a rookie shortstop. Any idea
Iwho hit the most? The answer is I
I Boston's Nomar Garciaparra with 30 inI
I his first season at shortstop, 1997. By
I the way, Crosby might have a tough I

You have to really love golf to play in
parts of Montana. Golfers playing on
courses in the Helena, Ga atin and
Lewis and Clark National Forests have
been warned to be on the lookout for
bears. The Montana State Department
of Fish and Wildlife has suggested that
golfers on those courses wear noise-
making devices such as little bells,
I which would alert but not startle the
I bears. Golfers were also urged to carry
pepper spray in case of a direct con- I
Srontation. Apparently, yelling 'Fore' I
won't do any good. L

Las Vegas has always been a boxing
town because gambling and prizefight-
ing go hand in hand. But until 1980,
Vegas wasjust one of many destinations
Io beaig fits. It all changed tat year
because of the Muhammad Ali-Larry
Holmes heavyweight championship
bout, the first real mega-fight. Caesar's
Palace constructed a temporary 25,000-
seat stadium; and the casino promptly
doubled its take for the entire month in
one weekend. Ever since, Vegas has
been the primary home to big-time box-
ing.

WHEN YOU NEED A
MAJOR FIX-UP
You have decided that it is
time to sell your home. After tak-
ing an objective look around, you
realize that you have a lot of work
to do in order to prepare your
home for the market. If it will
take more than just cleaning to
get your home ready for showing,
it may be time to call in two pro-
fessionals a home improvement
contractor and a real estate pro-
fessional.
The ideal listing has a modern
kitchen and bath, fresh paint, and
beautiful wood floors or wall to
wall carpet. Your agent can offer
suggestions about what your
house needs, what colors or cabi-
net styles are popular with buy-
ers, and tips on cost effective
improvements. The contractor
can work with you to put your
plan into action. If you feel that
the costs or disruption of a major
remodeling project would be
overwhelming, you have the
option of adjusting the asking
price to compensate for the con-
dition. Your agent can prepare a
market analysis to give you an
idea of what you can expect to
net from the sale of your home,
for both scenarios; market value
with improvements and without.
Sherri's daughter, Bonnie, a C.P.A.,
brings her expertise to form a dynamic
team ready to serve all your real estate
needs.

Cool Summer Recipes


Brown edge wafers
Delicious, Delightful, Quick,
and Easy
LINDA KOEBERT'S
Many Splendored Summer-
time Wafers
Vanilla Brown-Edged Wafers
Ingredients:
1 cup butter (half butter + half
margarine perfectly accept-
able) (1)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 eggs
Mix all ingredients until well
blended. Drop small teaspoon
size of dough onto buttered cook-
ie sheet. Pfe-heat oven to 350-
degrees, then bake 10-12 min-
utes.
Yields 6 dozen.
Variations on the theme of
brown-edged wafers, include:
Using dark brown sugar instead
of white. Remember when using
brown sugar, it must be
packed/firmed in the measuring
cup to equal the sweetness of
white. Raw brown sugar (usually
unrefined) is also very good.
These two brown sugars make
the wafers take on a caramel fla-
vor. You may or may not use the
vanilla.
Add your favorite nuts,


coconut, raisins (which, of
course, you'll plump in warm
water before adding to batter), or
for a special touch, add your
favorite food coloring or cinna-
mon drops.
This is the best of the wafer
recipes for making orange crisp
wafers. Everything's the same as
for the vanilla version except
you'll add 3 rounded tablespoons
fresh-grated orange rind, referred
to as "zest." If you want a very
orange flavor simply add more
"zest". (As is the case in many
recipes, some ingredients lose
their identity yet they add a certain
flavor to the overall which is the
case when making orange crisps.
The inclusion of vanilla simply
makes the crisps even more tasty
though it loses its identity as vanil-
la.)
For an elegant dessert, just
before serving, stack several
wafers with vanilla ice cream in
between. Serve with a bit of
chocolate syrup drizzled over the
stack with a cherry on top.
And with strawberry still avail-
able, rather than vanilla ice
cream, use strawberry ice cream,
then top with fresh strawberries,
either mashed or whole.
If you're a yogurt fan, of course
your favorite fruit flavor is a very
good substitute for ice cream.
These simple wafers keep


wonderfully well when simply
placed in a cookie jar with a tight
lid. And when wrapped air tight
and placed in the freezer, they'll
keep for months without- losing
crispness or flavor.
From the minute you decide to
bake a batch of brown-edge
wafers 'til they're out of the oven
and ready to serve, the time is
about 15-20 minutes. Too bad the


delicious fragrance can't be bot-
tled!
And be sure to bake enough so
that your family and guests can
ask for seconds or even thirds.
(1) I have "cheated" and used
1/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup mar-
garine and so far no one has told
the difference!

Vacation driving tips for dog days of summer


Summer is here and many driv-
ers will be hitting the road for
vacations and weekend get-a-
ways. "Hot weather brings
unique. challenges," said Ray
Palermo, director of public rela-
tions for auto insurer, Response
Insurance. "It can present danger-
ous conditions for both the vehicle
and its occupants." Each summer
sees more than 7 million car
breakdowns on the road and he
suggests that most summer break-
downs can be easily avoided.
Before heading out be sure you
check out the basics, including:
oil, transmission fluid, windshield
washer, battery level and strength,
tire pressure (including the spare),
cooling system (which should be
flushed and refilled at least every
two-years), belts and hoses and


have a well equipped emergency
kit and tool box in the trunk.
"Drivers need to stay cool as
well," noted Palermo. "Our stud-
ies have shown that 75 percent of
drivers are fearful of encountering
road rage and 37 percent said they
had personally experienced it in
the previous six months." Don't
escalate aggression on the road by
responding to it. Stop periodically
to refresh yourself, take along
moist towelettes and water.
When driving in hot weather
it's particularly important to keep
an eye on the lights and gauges. If
your temperature gauge moves
up, turn off your air conditioner
and turn on your vehicle's heater
to its highest and hottest setting. It
will be uncomfortable, but it will
help draw some of the heat away


from the engine. If you are
stopped in traffic put the car in
"park" and lightly step on the gas
to help circulate coolant. If the
temperature light goes on or if the
gauge enters the red zone, imme-
diately pull off the road to a safe
spot, well away from traffic. Do
not drive any further not even to
the next exit. Driving with an over-
heated engine can cause serious
damage to the engine.
Do not attempt to remove
the radiator cap itself. The pressur-
ized coolant is extremely hot and
will spray out with great force. Do
not pour water over the radiator or
engine, since a dramatic change
in temperature could cause dam-
age. After the engine cools a bit,
add a 50-50 mix of coolant and
water to the reservoir to bring it up


to its proper level.
Even when not stranded due
to a breakdown, summer heat can
pose dangers. Never leave a child
or pet in a parked car in summer
heat. Even an outside tempera-
ture in the 80s can quickly bring a
car interior to well over 140
degrees.
Bring a cell phone for emer-
gency calls, but don't use it while
driving. Response's studies have
shown that driving distractions
have become the number one
fear on the road.
'ITo free brochures, Driving
Tips for Hot Weather and Hitting
the Road Safely, and other infor-
mation are available at their web-
site: www.response.com.


Rainfall spikes mosquito population, disease


Heavy spring rainfall has trig-
gered major increases in the state's
mosquito population and resulted
in a spike of Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) cases among
horses, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson reported today.
As a result, Bronson is urging
horse owners to make sure their
animals are vaccinated against the
disease and advising all Floridians
to take precautions to minimize


their exposure to mosquitoes.
"It's critical that the public take
notice that we are experiencing
large increases in Florida's mosqui-
to population and begin taking
steps to protect not only their hors-
es but themselves, as well," Bron-
son said. "Many common mosqui-
toes are capable of carrying a
number of potentially dangerous
diseases."
As of today, 51 horses in 22 Flori-
da counties this year have contract-


ed EEE a virus that results in
brain swelling and is generally fatal
in horses, and sometimes fatal in
humans. No human cases of EEE
have been detected yet in 2005,
according to health officials.
By contrast, only 45 cases of
EEE were recorded for the entire
year in 2004, leading some to
believe that this year's cases could.
approach the approximately 200
recorded in the two heaviest years
in recent history 2003 and 1982.
On average, Florida records about


62 cases of EEE each year.
Bronson said this year's num-
bers make it all the more important
that horse owners check with their
veterinarians to make sure that
their animals have been vaccinated
against the disease and to make
sure that booster shots are up to
date. While no West Nile Virus
cases have yet been reported this
year, horses should be vaccinated
against that mosquito-borne dis-
ease also, Bronson said.
