Summer fun: Sunny days and ball players


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Miracle outfielder Evan Bigley helped sev-
en-year-old Austin Revels on with his bat-
ting helmet. Austin played ball last year
for the Rookies. Another camper, Kayla
Wilkes, 11, took her first turn ever at bat
and decided she wants to play for the Dixie
League. After two strikes, she blasted the
ball into the outfield, amazing even herself.
She walked away saying, "I didn't know I
could do that!" And that was what the event
was all about introducing the kids to the
"Great American Pastime" and planting the
seeds of a lifelong love of the game. This is
both Evan's and fellow Miracle player Josh
Baumier's first year with the Miracles. They
told the kids how much work it takes to
make it to "the Bigs" and gave them a few
pointers on the game they both love. It was
all part of the on-going LaBelle Recreation
Summer Camp fun.


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Miracles outfielder Evan Bigley, seated, and
pitcher Josh Baumier, signed autographs for a
bunch of wide-eyed fans at the LaBelle Sum-
mer Camp July 13. The camp is held at the UES
campus.

Pure


water in


future?
By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
LaBelle water customers may
finally be able to look forward to
better quality, thanks to a second
round of President Obama's fed-
eral stimulus money.
The city is hopeful that it will
qualify for part of that funding this
time around.
Anticipating some $2.55 mil-
lion in federal stimulus money
to be used to upgrade its existing
water treatment plant, the LaBelle
City Commissioners adopted an

grades Facilities Plan at its July 9 meeting.
The money would open the door for the
stimulus money, which is being channeled
through the Department of Environmental
Protection.
"For the first time I feel we can produce
something people will be willing to drink
and use... we must rebuild credibility," the
mayor said.
Applied Technology Management's Grant
Misterly reported that the city's proposed
new water treatment plant, to be built in
the pending South LaBelle Community off
SR 29S, is too big to be considered for this
stimulus package.
However, a 0.250 million gallon per day
(mgd) nanofiltration membrane system to
upgrade the current waterplant would be
acceptable.
The new system would filter organics
out of the water, reduce calcium and hard
ness and eliminate color all elements that
plague the city's water system and custom-
ers.
This plan could be "shovel ready" in just
a few days one of the requirements for
stimulus funding. After a hearing in August,
Mr. Misterly said he expects to have a signed
contract by December, and construction
completed six months later. The $3 million
project could be eligible for $2.55 million in
funding, with the rest coming from the city's
gas tax money.
Mayor Paul Puletti added that the city has
made some personnel changes and repairs
at the water plant to facilitate its proactivity
and provide quicker reaction to problems.
One of those problems seems to be a 35-
year build up of lime in the water distribu
tion lines that causes sporadic but serious
water quality issues in various parts of the
city.
The city has initiated a plan of flushing
various lines during the early hours of the
morning. If anyone experiences problems
with their city water, they are urged to call

city hall.
Although the new filtration system is a
"stop-gap" project to improve water qual-
ity till the city can get a new water plant on
line, it will remain active as a backup/hold-
ing system for that new plant.
With the upgrade, the plant will treat
250,000 gallons of water, which will be
blended with the rest of the plant's output
for a total of one million gallons per day ca-
pacity.
The city is planning a special meeting for
July 20 at 9 a.m. to allow the public to learn
about plans for the current water plant and
offer comments.

New plant
Mr. Misterly also did a power point pre-
sentation of a June workshop on the city's
proposed new water treatment plant, citing
issues with the current plant:
It's over 30 years old passed its design
life
Lime disposal is still a problem
Water quality will improve because
the source will be deeper the Lower Haw-
thorne Aquifer and the city will no longer be
dependent on the stressed surficial aquifer;
No expansion is possible while using
that surficial aquifer. Trihalomethanes, can-
cer-causing agents, will not be an issue with
water from the Lower Hawthorne, where
water is not contaminated by ground run-
off.
Goals:
The use of modern technology will be
more beneficial and cost effective. It will al-
low expansion capacity and eliminate the
use of lime as a softener.
The new process will use a Reverse Os-
mosis membrane and a deeper water source
with no organics or color issues. However,
that source will be saltier, requiring a deep
injection well to dispose of the salt.
The city began planning for the new wa-
ter plant in 2005 and spent two years trying
to hone down its service area.
It has also gone from a proposed 4 mpg
plant to a 2.5 mgd plant, and now a 1.5 mgd
plant. It will, however, retain the ability to be
expanded for a 2.5 mgd plant.
Funding is sought as both grants and
loans. Funds for the $19 million project are
expected to be available this fiscal year.
The design for the new plant is approxi-
mately 30 percent complete with the expec
tation that it will be done in October.
The city still needs to test a pilot well
from the new water source and obtain con-
struction funding.

heroes.
Last year, as many recall, LaBelle lost two
brave young men, one in Afghanistan and
one in Iraq. Staff Sgt. Robert Strickland and
CWO John Hammett, both graduates of La
Belle High School, were taken from us with-
in a seven day period. It was in their honor
that the Fallen Hero's benefit was held last
year. Engraved bricks honoring SSgt Strick-
land and CWO Hammet will be among the
first three placed in this park.
SPC 4th Class Nicholas J. Cutinha,
whose Medal of Honor is on proud display
at American Legion Post 130 in LaBelle,
was remembered last November 22 when
a ceremony in his honor was held at the Ft.
Denaud Cemetery and the American Legion
Post. SPC Cutinha's heroism during one of
the bloodiest ambushes of the Viet Nam era
is detailed on his Medal of Honor citation;
this proud young Manchu was from Alva.
His name is engraved on the third and final
brick to be laid at this ceremony.
The veteran's memorial park has been a
project close to the hearts of many in this
small, tightly knit community. Located at the
corner of Main Street and Hickpochee Ave
(SR 80), it sits in plain sight of the Hendry
County Courthouse; a plain reminder that
the freedoms and rights we enjoy as Ameri-
cans have a price which our veterans have
had to pay, many with their lives.

Our Purpose...
The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a unique
trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of
journalistic service to the citizens of the community
Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive
on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax
surpluses are reinvested in Independent's mission of jour-
nalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the

of the land for the park helped greatly to so-
lidify the project, which is finally coming to
life this month.
At 11 a.m., following the dedication cer-
emony, there will be a benefit luncheon at
VFW Post 10100 on SR 29; the luncheon
will feature a pork dinner, with all the fixings
for a $6.00/person donation. One hundred
percent of all proceeds from the benefit lun-
cheon will go to benefit the Veteran's Me-
morial Park project.
Three local organizations have collabo-
rated to bring this benefit to the people of
LaBelle and Hendry County: the American
Legion Post 130, the VFW Post 10100 and
the Moose Lodge 2398, all in LaBelle. The
park project is hoping to generate enough
funds for the memorial monument. An ad-
ditional $47,000 is needed for the park proj-
ect to be completed.
Anyone wishing to purchase event tick
ets for the benefit may contact the sponsor-
ing organizations:

VFW Post 10100 863-675-8008
Donations to the park project may be
written to 'Fallen Heroes Benefit' and will be
gladly accepted by any of the three sponsor-
ing organizations.
While the laying of bricks at the dedica-
tion ceremony will be limited to the three
young men mentioned, orders for addition-
al memorial bricks are being taken by the
park project, for the donation of $100/brick.
Memorial brick order forms are available at
the American Legion Post 130 in LaBelle.

Thanks for participating!

Apology
I wish to apologize to those folks at the
four-way stop at Cowboy Way and Main St.
just before lunch time this morning. I don't
know what I was thinking. Wasn't on the
phone, just preoccupied with my thoughts I


guess. When the car in front of me crossed I
just followed. Thank you all for not running
over me.

Health care issues
Does anyone feel like our healthcare sys-
tem works? Doesn't it seem like insurance
companies are more interested in collecting
premiums than in paying out any claims?
It seems we need big changes. How many
millions of hard-working Americans are un-
insured? Even worse, how many are under
insured? We've all heard the stories of hard-
working middle class Americans having to
file for bankruptcy and losing everything
because of a medical bill. What about you?


God forbid something were to happen an-
cause you to stop working for a month, two
months, three months, how long would you
be able to last? My opinion is that that does
not describe a system that works?
I don't know how it could be changed
without having to pay more. The healthcare
tax that is currently being discussed was ac-
tually proposed by John McCain during the
campaign.
About Obama, if he were to support this
bill, which is actually being moved forward
by Senators of both parties, he will be go-
ing against what he said on the campaign.
Each of us will have to judge that as we will.
Sometimes we all say things that we have to
go back on. That's not to excuse everything


a politician might go back on. It is important
we get this healthcare thing right, though.
Those that are against this cap-and-trade
thing have labeled by those that are against
it as an increased tax. I don't know enough
about it to say one way or the other but be-
ware, just because someone says something
does not make it true.
We certainly have to watch what Obama
is doing carefully and keep him on the
straight and narrow, just as we would with
any other politician, of any party. He does
make me hopeful though. It seems our sys
tem has a tendency to beat people down,
though, regardless of their intentions.


Letters to the Editor


This is for the Caloosa Belle "Public
Forum", in response to an unsigned letter
"Theatre questions" published 7/09/09:
It is truly hard to imagine that anyone in
this day and age, and with the major issues
that most of the world is facing....would
have so little to think about that they would
write two different letters and send them
to be published in a newspaper about the
use of two innocuous words in a song in a
children's play! I know it may sound "offen
sive", but I can only think "Get a life"!
I would speculate that this person would
have no idea how to approach a major
problem or injustice in life, so they choose
to make an issue for concern and contro-
versy over "nothing".
I would think that every member of the
community would be so grateful to have a
person (in this case, a volunteer children's
program director, Emily Ankeney) give of
her time and energies (in addition to her
full time professional occupation) to further
positive learning experiences for our youth,
that they wouldn't even consider question-
ing and criticizing the substitution of 2
words in a song!
I guess if that is the most important thing
in this person's life, she might want to con-
sider volunteer community or charity work.
Let's learn to express less petty criticism
and show more gratitude for sincere giving
and caring when we see it!
Linda Bosley,
LaBelle resident and property
owner.

Children and the theater
Wow! The children's production of
Wipeout! at the Firehouse Cultural Center
was amazing last night!
The kids were nervous for opening
night, but they did it, as they always do, to
the delight of the audience, their families,
and themselves. I drove home praising my
daughter, then I got a bit somber.
It occurred to me that not only was this
night a celebration, it also had a cloud of
sadness over my friend, Emily Ankeney, the
director/producer.
See, Miss Emily does not have any kids in
the play. No nieces, nephews, in-laws.., she
is there doing this for OUR CHILDREN, and
absolutely no benefit to herself (including a
pay check) but the satisfaction of knowing
that she has brought the love of the theater
into the lives of 30+ children. That's it.
I am moved to tears when I read the let-
ters from the past two weeks Speak Out.
My children have participated in the past 3
of the 4 productions Emily has directed for
the kids summer program (Wipeout, Robin
Hood and Wizard of Oz).
Up until this week's letter, I had no idea
that Em was teaching them about "witches,
wizard and dance hall girls."
I was under the impression, as I left my
beautiful 8 year old girl in her hands every
day, that she was teaching them theater, ev-
ery sense of it.
My daughter has learned technical the-
atrical production from a woman who has

"the bachelor of fine arts in dance/theater."
Not to be easily impressed, but I am.
I also know that dance, acting, singing,
production and teaching is Emily's talents,
and she has been generous enough to share
those with children who live and go to school
in a community who never thought these
things were important for our children. (I do
know some of the elementary schools put
on plays and musicals... not trying to take
away from that.).
You hurt her, whoever you are, by attack-
ing her choice to make CHILDREN feel com-
fortable about the words they say. It is NOT
up to you or me to decide a child's comfort
level. The same would have been done for
yours, mine, anyone's.
The entire point of this summer program
is to bring 30 kids of age variance, education-
al, religious and economical background to
work together and become a part of a team/
cast. Emily DID respond to you in the first
letter.
It is NOT about leaving out those words..
it is about teaching the other children around

the lines or scenes that were changed, and
frankly, did not miss the words "hunky" or
"bikini" at all, though they would not have
offended me.
I do know that ALL kids involved left that
theater last night, so full of pride and ener-
gy.
You are right, this is NOT vacation bible
school. It is an amazing summer program
for the lucky kids in our town, run by my
friend, Emily Ankeney, who has so much
love in her heart for arts and children that
she commits her life to doing this, EVEN
when she gets kicked.
One last thing... no one is ever going to
be 100 percent happy with everything they
are involved in.
I hear football moms complaining about
coaches, dance daughters whose moms
don't like the costumes... the fact is, when
you get involved in any kind of activity, you
need to have a tolerance for some things,
because I guarantee you cannot be happy
with every thing.
Oh, and I do believe that tolerance is
taught in the bible.

Farmworkers tackle shortages in healthcare professions


Washington, D.C The Association of
Farmworker Opportunity Programs an-
nounced today that over the past year, grant-
ees from the National Farmworker Jobs
Program (NFJP) have placed and/or trained
over 1,380 farmworkers into healthcare oc-
cupations. These include placements in jobs
such as radiology technicians, CNAs, LPNs,
paramedics and pharmacy technicians to
name a few.
"These numbers illustrate why the Na
tional Farmworker Jobs Program is one of
the Department of Labor's most successful
programs," said David Strauss, Executive


Director of the Association of Farmworker
Opportunity Programs. "In times of record
shortages in the healthcare profession, farm-
workers are receiving training and providing
critical services for our country,"
Florida leads the nation in training farm-
workers and their dependents for health ser-
vices occupations. Of the 241 farmworkers
trained and placed in one year in the State
of Florida, 44 were trained and placed from
the Collier farmworker program (nearly 20
percent).
It is timely considering that iTECH has
openings in the Licensed Practical Nursing

they need to train in this high wage, high
skill occupation.
Immokalee Technical Center (iTECH)
staff and LaBelle office staff are available
Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
to assist potential students with a variety of
training choices. Call 239-658-7080.

H1N1 confirmed results this morning for
the two remaining samples taken from de-
tainees at a detention center within Glades
County. These detainees first became ill with
influenza-like-illness (ILI) on June 27, 2009,
but immediate action was taken to help pre-
vent further spreading of illnesses.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments will continue to closely moni

Pre-existing health conditions often play
a role in how individuals react to the flu.
Florida currently has listed 1,781 confirmed
cases of H1N1 Swine Flu.
Please remember to take the following
precautions to help prevent the spread of
any respiratory illnesses.
Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or seem to be ill.
If you get sick with flu-like symptoms,
stay home and limit contact with others.
Wash hands frequently (for at least
20-30 seconds) with soap & warm water
to lessen the spread of any respiratory ill
nesses. Wash in between your fingers, your
finger nails, your wrists and forearms.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and

The other day at the Kiwanis meeting my

I opened a pack of spearmint gum this
morning and it said right under the cover
"No spears were harmed in the making of

Peregrine falcon removed from state's



endangered species list by FWC


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva
tion Commission (FWC) approved removal
of the peregrine falcon from the state's list of
endangered species on Wednesday.
"Today is a time to celebrate peregrine
falcons," said Rodney Barreto, FWC chair-
man. "This is a tremendous success story."
Through the efforts of wildlife managers
and individuals, the peregrine falcon has be-
come one of the best examples of how wise
conservation practices can assist a species
to come back from the brink of extinction.
DDT usage in the United States nearly wiped
out entire populations of birds decades ago,
including the peregrine falcon. Fortunately,
before the peregrine falcon became extinct,
the use of DDT was eliminated.
As a result of pesticide regulations and
captive breeding-and-release efforts, the
peregrine falcon made a dramatic come-
back from precipitously low numbers in
the 1970s. Peregrine populations dropped
from about 20,000 birds prior to the 1940s to
650 birds in 1965. Of the two populations of
peregrine falcon that pass through Florida,
there are now at least 3,100 breeding pairs.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service delisted
the species in 1999.
Whenever the FWC delists a species, a
management plan must be in place, with
guidelines to ensure the continued conser-
vation of the species. The Commission also
approved the final Peregrine Falcon Manage-
ment Plan on Wednesday. The peregrine
will still be protected by the federal Migra
tory Bird Treaty Act.
"The peregrine falcon is a success story
showing what well-coordinated conserva-
tion can accomplish for a species," said


Obituaries

Mary E Dyess, 89
LABELLE -Mary F. Dyess, age 89, of LaBelle,
passed away July 13, 2009, in Fort Myers.
She was born July 28, 1919, in Fort Myers, to
the late Melville Emory Forrey and the late Co-
rine (Poole) Forrey. Mary was a lifelong resident
of the area. She was a member of the Eastern
Star and attended First Baptist Church.
Survivors include son, George Emory Dyess,
Griffin, Ga.; daughter, Glenda Harris (Darrell),
LaBelle; grandchildren, Jeffrey Glenn Burton,
Michael Francis Burton, Cindy Dyess, Rodney
Dyess, Jeffery Harris, Jerrod Harris; great-grand-
children, Rhonda Ray Burton, Alton Burton, Ro-
nald Burton, Glenn Burton, Tyler Burton, Jeffery
Harris, Maggie Harris; great-great grandson,
Weston Dyess Burton; and many nieces and
nephews.
Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Thursday, July
16, at First Baptist Church of LaBelle, LaBelle,
with Reverend Frank Deerey Jr. officiating. Inter
ment will follow in Fort Denaud Cemetery. Visi-
tation will be Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. at Akin-
Davis Funeral Home, LaBelle.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to
First Baptist Church Building Fund, 330 N. Main
Street, LaBelle, FL 33935.
Arrangements by Akin-Davis Funeral Home -
LaBelle.


Robin Boughton, the FWC's peregrine fal
con management plan leader.
The approved plan acknowledges that
pesticide contamination is an ongoing threat
throughout much of the wintering range of
the species because many South and Cen-
tral American countries lack the pesticide
regulations that have been enacted in the
United States. While peregrines do not
breed in Florida, they are commonly seen in
the state. Many peregrines migrate through
in the fall and some may stay here during the


winter. The plan's objectives stress the need
to ensure coastal habitats, particularly those
in the middle Keys, are preserved.
The Commission will consider allowing
peregrines to be used for falconry when it
meets again in September in Howey-in-the-
Hills.
The peregrine falcon is known as the
world's fastest bird, averaging 25-34 mph
during normal flight and reaching speeds
in excess of 150 mph during dives for prey,
which include doves and ducks.

Revving up their engines
On Saturday, July 18, the Hendry County Motorsports Park will crown the first
ever Fastest Redneck Around the Lake. Competition is open to all two-wheel
drive, street legal pickup trucks. Cash and prizes will be awarded. The fea-
tured event of the night will be the super fast Late Models doing battle on the
newly-renovated 3/8 mile high banked clay in the Budweiser 30. The night will
also include racing in the street stocks, sportsman, pure stocks, V-8 bombers
and mini-stock divisions. Tickets can be purchased at the gate or at a discount
in advance at the UPS store of LaBelle, Central Mobile Homes of LaBelle and
Okeechobee and Hungry Howie's in Clewiston. Gates open at 4 p.m. for fans
and 3 p.m. for participants. Racing action begins at 7 p.m. There will be plenty
of food and other refreshments available so bring the whole family out for a
complete evening of fun.


June marked the beginning of another
season of partnership between the South
Florida Water Management District (SF-
WMD) and the Hendry-Glades Audubon,
whose experts lead public birding tours at
the District-managed Stormwater Treatment
Area 5 (STA-5) in Hendry County. Most tours
are guided by Audubon's Margaret England,
who recently received the District's first
Ambassador Award to recognize her com-
munity service and commitment to assist
the District and provide increased access to
public lands.
"The diversity of species at STA-5 is truly
breathtaking, and the partnership with the
Hendry-Glades Audubon is a significant pub-
lic service," said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "These treatment wet-
lands are effective at cleaning water flowing
into the River of Grass and, as an added ben-
efit, have also become wildlife havens that
showcase the environmental and economic
significance of Everglades restoration."
Birding, a national pastime, is big busi
ness, with 48 million people observing birds
both around the home and through vacation

travel. A 2001 report by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service concluded that nationwide
birding generated $32 billion in retail sales
and created 863,406 jobs.
Non-consumptive bird use (non-hunting
activities) supported more than 19,000 jobs
in Florida in 2006, and wildlife viewing ac-
tivities generated more than $3 billion state-
wide that year, according to a state report.
Second in the nation only to California, bird-
ing generates an estimated $477 million in
retail sales in Florida every year.
During the past 15 years, Stormwater
Treatment Areas have proven to be the wa
ter-cleaning workhorses of Everglades resto-
ration, utilizing plants to remove phospho-
rus from water flowing into the Everglades.
Since 1994, six STAs with a combined
area of more than 52,000 acres -have re
tained more than 1,000 metric tons of total
phosphorus that would have otherwise
entered the Everglades. Overall, Florida has
invested more than $1.8 billion to improve
Everglades water quality.
At each Stormwater Treatment Area, wa-
ter levels are managed at an optimal depth

Get the 'jump' on fleas


By Pat Dobbins
Hendry/Glades Health Dept.
Fleas love the Florida weather and they
can make life miserable for dogs, cats and
even humans.
Did you know that fleas can jump 100
times their body length?
Flea pupa can attach themselves to car-
pet and other fibers. Their
cocoons make them re
sistant to most chemicals
which make them diffi-
cult to control.
The pupa stage usu-
ally lasts from seven to
10 days, but if there is no
host around, the adult
flea can survive dormant Patricia
in the cocoon for up to Dobbins
six months!
Fleas survive by sucking the blood of
their hosts. The hosts can be dogs, cats, rab-
bits, squirrels, rats, mice, chickens, and even
humans will do in a pinch!
Fleas often breed in large numbers where
pets and other animals live. Fleas can trans-
mit disease and tapeworm. Some people
suffer more than others from flea bites. Flea
bites can cause intense itching which can
lead to infection.
Flea bites usually have a small red spot
and around the spot there is a red halo with
very little swelling.
Many people do not react to flea bites at
all, but other people are sensitive and can


suffer severe allergic reactions.
Suggestions to treat flea bites on humans
include:
*Resist the urge to scratch and wash the
bites with antiseptic soap to help reduce the
risk of infection.
*Use calamine lotion, or other "itch"
creams to help relieve the itching.
*See your healthcare provider or ask a
pharmacist for advice on appropriate medi-
cations to reduce any swelling. Please see
your healthcare provider if the symptoms
worsen or if a secondary infection devel-
ops (indicated by discharge of pus from
wounds).
Flea control is difficult for pet owners
to implement because two things must be
done:
(1) treat the pet and
(2) treat the premises. Pet treatment
alone is not sufficient because the animal
quickly becomes re-infested from fleas that
will remain the untreated areas. There are
many products available to prevent fleas on
your pets as well as products to treat them if
they do get fleas.
Please call your vet for information on
what's safe for your pet.
(Patricia Dobbins is the Administrator for the
Hendry and Glades County Health Departments.

New Livestock Indemnity Program announced

WASHINGTON, July 7, 2009 Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced that eligible ranchers and livestock producers can
begin applying for benefits under the provisions of the Livestock Indemnity Program in the 2008 Farm Bill on July 13.
"This program will provide livestock producers with a vital safety net to help them overcome the damaging financial impact of natural
disasters," said Vilsack.
The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides assistance to producers for livestock deaths that result from disaster. Using funds from
the Agricultural Disaster Relief Trust Fund established under section 902 of the Trade Act of 1974, the program is administered by the USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA). LIP compensates livestock owners and contract growers for livestock death losses in excess of normal mortal-
ity due to adverse weather, including losses due to hurricanes, floods, blizzards, disease, wildfires, extreme heat and extreme cold. Eligible
losses must have occurred on or after Jan. 1, 2008, and before Oct. 1, 2011.
The following table provides the final dates to file a notice of loss and/or application for payment for either 2008 or 2009 livestock
losses.
Date of Livestock Death Final Date to File a Notice of Final Date to Submit an
Loss Application for Payment

Specific provisions for the other supplemental agricultural disaster assistance programs authorized by the 2008 Act the Livestock For-
age Disaster Program (LFP), the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program (SURE), the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees,
and Farm-Raised Fish (ELAP) and the Tree Assistance Program (TAP) will be implemented through separate rulemakings and announced
at a later date.

Water safety is an important topic this
time of year. One of the many aspects of
water safety is supervision. When children
are swimming or playing anywhere near the
water it is vital to have an adult assigned to
watching them. Whether it is an inground
pool, a lake, an aboveground pool, the
beach or a small, blowup kiddie pool, a re-
sponsible adult must be in charge. It only
takes a second for something to go wrong.
The adult assigned as the pool watcher
should not become distracted by other activ-
ities, the phone ringing or involved conver-
sations. Their eyes should be on the children
nonstop. If they need to go inside for any
period of time, they should assign another
adult to watch them or get everyone out of
the water.
Even when everyone is inside, watching
your children can make all the difference.
Children can quickly figure out how to get
outside and water can pique their interest.
For this reason, it is also important to set up
layers of protection. Locks, alarms, barriers
and safety covers are some of the items that
can help.
Children can be curious, creative and in-
novative. Adult supervision is necessary for
safety in and out of the water.
Have a designated pool watcher to
keep an eye on swimmers at all times
Learn CPR
Keep your safety barriers and layers of
protection in place at all times
Never swim alone, this means adults
too
Do not use a pool/ spa while under the


influence of alcohol or drugs
Do not use glass containers around the
pool
Keep the pool area well lit if swimming
after dark
Go in at the first sign of thunderstorms

Preparedness training is key to survival!


By Pat Dobbins
Hendry & Glades Counties Every year
staff members at the Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments get together for
their annual "Preparedness Day Training."
This year the staff enjoyed a special guest
speaker: Jim Syoen, Sky Warn 4 Weather
Forecaster with WFTX-TV/FOX 4. The train-
ing event took place at the Hendry County
Health Department-Clewiston site on Friday,
June 19. This year's theme was "We Are Sur-
vivors!" All staff members were encouraged
to dress in their "survivor-tropical gear" and
Jim Syoen decided to join in on the fun by
wearing his Hawaiian shirt, shorts and deck
shoes! The staff members thoroughly en
joyed the wisdom and wit of Jim Syoen, and
really appreciated that he drove over 70 miles
to join the event! He was definitely the "posi-
tive thunder" of the day! He talked to the staff
about the hurricane season outlook, how dif-
ferent weather patterns and hurricanes form
and some basic "survival skills".
He opened the floor so that questions
could be asked, which prompted discus-
sions on tornadoes, lightning and thunder-
storms. He also talked about past storms


to remind everyone how quickly the path
of a storm can change. The staff members
tried to convince him to play his tuba, but he
shared some comical stories as to why his
tuba was being "cleaned."
Other guests at the event included Arlene
Bettencourt with United Way and 211, the
Hendry County Emergency Management Di-
rector Lupe Taylor and her Executive Assis-
tant Kelly Dyess. Additionally, Brett Slocum,
the Regional Emergency Response Advisor
for the Department of Health, provided the
staff with some valuable information.
The training events included prepared-
ness challenges that encouraged staff to
"think outside of the box" when it comes to
disaster preparedness. Staff members were
divided into teams and were give disaster
scenarios in which they had to come up
with response solutions.
Hendry County Emergency Management
donated a weather radio and other prepared-
ness goodies as prizes. It was a challenging
but fun learning experience! Hopefully it
will be a quiet hurricane season but if not,
the staff members at the Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments are prepared!

Smokey Bear celebrates 65th birthday


The FL Division of Forestry has an-
nounced that they will be co-hosting Smokey
Bear Birthday Bashes in Glades County to
celebrate Smokey Bear's 65th birthday and
provide critical information on wildfire pre-
vention.
Since his "birth" on August 9, 1944,
Smokey Bear has been a recognized symbol
of conservation and protection of America's
forests. His message about wildfire preven-
tion has helped to reduce the number of
acres burned annually by wildfires from
about 22 million (1944) to an average of 7
million today. However, wildfire prevention
remains one of the most critical environ-
mental issues affecting our country. Many
Americans believe that lightning starts most
wildfires. In fact, on average, 9 out of 10
wildfires nationwide are caused by people.
The principle causes are campfires left unat-
tended, trash burning on windy days, arson,
careless discarding of smoking materials or
barbecue coals and operating equipment
without spark arrestors.
Join them in Glades County August 8
from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Perry Park in Moore
Haven.
Smokey Bear is the center of the longest-
running public service advertising (PSA)
campaign in U.S. history. Since 1944, he has
been communicating his well-known mes-
sage, "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires."
In 2001, the term 'Wildfires' was introduced
to include all unwanted, unplanned fires in
natural areas such as grass fires or brush
fires. The Smokey Bear campaign is a criti-
cal tool specially designed to ask for every
citizen's conscientious commitment to be
responsible with fire.
Every few years, new PSAs are created to
reach a specific target audience. The current
campaign specifically targets young adults
who live in the wildland/urban interface
people who are likely to be casual camp-
ers, hikers or mountain bikers and feel they
would never be responsible for a wildfire
-- to remind them that Smokey is counting


on them to prevent human-caused wild-
fires. New television and radio PSAs were
launched in June to celebrate Smokey's
birthday and continue to decrease the num-
ber of human-caused wildfires. The ads en-
courage young adults to "Get Your Smokey
On" that is, to become like Smokey and
speak up when others are acting carelessly.
The ads also direct audiences to visit www.
smokeybear.com for more information
about wildfire prevention.
"Smokey Bear is the nation's symbol for
wildfire prevention and his important mes-
sage has been communicated to genera-
tions of Americans during the past sixty five
years," said Helene Cleveland, Fire Preven-
tion Program Manager, U.S. Forest Service.
"Smokey's enduring message is as critical
today as it was when he was introduced in
1944 and I am confident that the national
campaign and FL Division of Forestry's ef-
forts on the ground will continue to raise
awareness about wildfire prevention is-
sues."
Smokey Bear has been rated one of the
most recognizable figures in America, rank-
ing alongside Mickey Mouse and Santa
Claus. Smokey is recognized by 97 percent
of adults and 3 out of 4 adults are able to
recall Smokey's message of "Only You Can
Prevent Wildfires" without prompting, ac-
cording to an Ad Council tracking survey.
The Forest Fire prevention campaign was
ranked 26th on Advertising Age's Top 100
Advertising Campaigns (March 1999), along
such commercial advertising giants as
Campbell's Soup and Burger King.
The Wildfire Prevention campaign was
developed in partnership with the Ad Coun-
cil, a private, non-profit organization that
marshals talent from the advertising and
communications industries, the facilities of
the media and the resources of the business
and non-profit communities to produce,
distribute and promote public service cam-
paigns on behalf of non-profit organizations
and government agencies.
