Teen Court: 'Free shot' for youthful offenders


Program brings law to kids


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Ask the parent of any teen.
Kids listen to each other. That is
the premise behind Teen Court.
Six years ago the program
ended in Hendry County when
the funding dried up. This fall
monies have again become
available. Marcia Salmon, Pro-
gram Service Coordinator for Ju-
venile Arbitration, Teen and Drug
Courts, along with County Judge
James D. Sloan are breathing
new life into the program.
Prospective defendants are
referred to Teen Court by the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
Then Ms. Salmon looks at the
cases to determine which may
be suitable. To be recommended
for Teen Court, the accused may
not have problems at home and
must be doing well at school.
They must be first time offend-
ers, accused of misdemeanors.
Participants are usually the
older teens. Juvenile Arbitration
usually handles younger stu-
dents with one-on-one counsel-
ing along with a parent. Thirty
days after counseling, the teen
and parent return, hopefully with
sanctions assigned during coun-
seling completed. It's a less for-
mal process than Teen Court.
According to Ms. Salmon,
Teen Court provides high school-
ers with life skills and career pos-
sibilities. She said the program
takes selected actual court cases
in which the defendant is a high
school student and tries them
in front of a court of their peers.
The prosecutor, defense attorney,
clerk, bailiff and jury are all made
up of teenagers. These court of-
ficials are coached by profession-
als. Defendants get a handbook
of basic information including

and Teen Court defense attorney David Donaldson of LaBelle

appropriate dress, decorum and
procedure.
County Judge James D. Sloan
said that one of the best parts of
the program is that, after a defen-
dant has his day in Teen Court,
he or she then is obligated to sit
on a jury a twist that lets them
see themselves and the entire
process from a different perspec-
tive.
Judge Sloan has seen the
concept work. He said that
sometimes a defendant thinks
it's a joke. He recalls one cocky
defendant charged with posses-
sion of alcohol who was found
guilty by a Teen Court jury. Still
unimpressed, he stood while
the attractive young jury fore-
man explained their decision in
part by telling him, "I can tell you
one thing. If you had showed
up at my door with a six pack I
wouldn't have gotten into the
truck with you and neither would


any of my friends."
Judge Sloan said he watched
while her statements deflated the
impudent young defendant bet-
ter and faster than any lecture he
could have delivered on the evils
of alcohol.
At the very least, Teen Court
gives kids a new appreciation
for the system and for their own
place in a larger society, but it
can also stimulate a real interest
in a possible career. Judge Sloan
said one of the first defendants in
his previous Teen Court is now a
prosecuting attorney in Florida.
The process teaches kids
analytical skills, public speaking
and active listening picking up
inconsistencies in testimony as
well as the nuts and bolts of the
criminal justice system.
David Donaldson, a senior at
LHS, served as defense attorney.

okayed
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Although many of those in-
volved in placing a new bridge
across the Caloosahatchee River in
western Hendry County will not be
around to see the finished product,
Hendry County commissioners
had the job of choosing the future
site.
It has been a long process -
about three years just to make the
choice but it has finally been ac-
complished. The new river cross-
ing will be on the extreme western
edge of the county, just east of the
Hendry-Lee line.
Opposition came from Alva res-
idents who fear losing their neigh-
borhood tranquility, but Hendry
County residents of Riverbend RV
Park and Cotton Strip were con-
cerned about other alignments that
might infringe on the use of their
properties and also their aesthetic
qualities.
Discussion included whether
and how to retain Fort Denaud
swing bridge as one crossing point,
even though it is in a residential
area and has a strict weight limit.
It was also mentioned that the City
of LaBelle has stated its preference
that a crossing on Bridge Street
remain. As resident Tom Corbitt
and Commissioner Karson Turner
agreed, routing traffic around the

David said he is taking part because he feels
knowledge of the court system is a benefit
to everyone. Participating in Teen Court is
exciting, he said, and an eye opener. During
the September mock trial, he said the pros-
ecuting attorney kept him on his toes and
caught him off guard a number of times. He
added, "School is easy. This is hectic!" a
new understanding of the adult world he
and his peers are about to enter.
As a defense attorney, David said it's his


job to bring out the good qualities of the
accused, show his client in the best light
possible. That evening, he revealed one de-
fendant as a good athlete and student with
a job, who wants to enter the military all
facts that help give the jury a better total
picture.
Community service, the highest sen-
tence a Teen Court jury can hand down, is
required, although just how much is up to
the jury. Additional sanctions may also be
handed down.
Another aspect of Teen Court is that after
their trial, defendants must serve on a jury
two to four times as part of their sentence.

LHS. She was a jury member in Teen Court.

city could be devastating to its downtown
area.
Commissioner Tris Chapman, in whose
district the new bridge site is located, said
the overwhelming choice of his constitu-
ents is the westernmost location. Commis-
sioner Chapman moved to approve that
alignment. Commissioner Kevin McCarthy
seconded. The motion passed, 4-0. Com-
missioner Janet Taylor was not present.
A presentation on the bridge crossing
and SR 29 expansion is set for 5:30 p.m.
today (Thursday, Nov. 5) at LaBelle Civic
Center.

Case manager approved.
The commissioners also approved a re-
quest to implement a case manager posi-
tion for the courts.
Court Operations Manager Sheila Mann
was joined by County Judge James D. Sloan
and 20th Circuit Judge Christine Greider in
presenting the program.
The position will screen and supervise
defendants deemed eligible by a judge for
pretrial release.
The position would entail interviewing
defendants, conducting background checks
and screening for possible mental health or
substance abuse issues before a defendant
could be released.
Ms. Mann said there have been 870 fel-
ony cases thus far this year and 1,091 are
projected. She commended Judge Greider,
who has expedited the docket and disposed
of 673 cases.

It will be the responsibility of the case
manager to expedite cases to increase the
court's efficiency. She said it would also
mean a fiscal savings for the jail.
Dedicated funding is available, they reit-
erated. No ad valorem taxes will be used.
The money will come from the an addition-
al court costs fee of $65, which currently has
a balance of $261,257. That money is desig-
nated for very specific purposes, including
this program. The total budget for the proj-
ect is $59,136.29.
Sheriff Steve Whidden was also not in fa-
vor of the position. He said he initiated the
practice of issuing notices to appear rather
than making arrests for many misdemean-
ors. He said in January there were 265 in-
mates in the Hendry County Jail. At the time
of the commission meeting there were 188.
Judge Greider said that most counties in
the circuit have the program and it has been
shown to be an effective case management
tool. It gives people their time in court on a
timely basis, she noted.
Candidates for the program will only be
considered 72 hours after they have been
arrested to ensure that they are not able to
make bond and don't pose a threat to the
community.
Judge Sloan said he would return in six
months to report on the program or at any
time the commission specified.
Commissioner McCarthy made the mo-
tion to try the program for a three-year pe-
riod, stating that no ad valorem monies will
be used and that, if it can save money in the
jail, The motion passed 4-0.

She didn't know what to expect when she
volunteered for Teen Court, but said she
would like to act as the prosecutor one day.
Monica Lee is also a sophomore at LHS
and served as a juror that night. She said
she was nervous her first time in the Sep-
tember mock court, but when it was over
she was excited. "I loved the whole thing,"
said, and agreed that she'd like to prosecute
a case one time.
Kacie Hull is a senior at LHS. She served
as the Clerk of Courts and on a jury. She
said she expected it to be harder. She said
having this opportunity is a real eye opener.
She plans to become an x-ray technician,
but appreciates the chance to see what the
law is all about.
Gabriela Reya is a junior at LHS who
served as bailiff at the mock trial and a jury
member at Teen Court. She said it's the jury
that's in the hot seat it's their job to decide
guilt or innocence and to decide an appro-
priate sentence. She said she's not really
comfortable with passing judgment, but is
ready to listen and may be interested in be-
coming a lawyer some day.
Patricia Ainsworth is a senior at Moore
Haven High School and served as prosecut-
ing attorney in a possession of marijuana
and alcohol case. She thinks she may be
interested in a career as an attorney or fo-
rensic pathologist.
Patricia said Teen Court teaches aware-
ness and the importance of choosing good
friends. It also shows teens that anyone can
end up on the wrong side of the law, ad-
mitting that she has held other kids' bags
before without knowing what was inside.
Dalecia Brown, a sophomore at Moore
Haven High School, sees Teen Court as a

learning experience, especially since she is
considering the law as a possible career.
Adult volunteers are an integral part of
Teen Court. LaBelle attorney Jimmy Luckey
coached David as the defense attorney. Mr.
Luckey said Teen Court is an excellent pro-
gram, and especially likes having former de-
fendants serve on the jury after sentencing.
Mr. Luckey also said that providing manda-
tory minimum and maximum sentences
sets a good balance and he is pleased with
the proactive and creative sentencing open
to the jury.
Stephanie Bendeck of the State Attor-
ney's Office was impressed with the teens
serving as prosecutors that evening, saying
her young proteges were "sponges" that
soaked up everything they could.
The defendants were anxious before
their proceedings began. One young man
was accused of possession of marijuana
and alcohol; another of possession of sto-
len property; and the third of battery. After
the trial, the father of one of the defendants
(who had been found guilty) said that this is
a fantastic project that lets the kids see both
sides.
A mother said she hopes the experience
will teach her son to make better decisions.
Teen Court can help reduce the number
of cases in the court system; teach life skills
to teens; engender a new respect for the
law; and give young people a taste of law
as a career. It can provide deserving young
offenders with a second chance.
As young "defense attorney" David Don-
aldson put it to his clients, "This is your free
shot."
And those just don't come around all
that often at any age.

Letter to the Editor


Aqua Isles
Aqua Isles is a retirement home commu
nity in LaBelle with an RV section occupied by
a mix of permanent residents and snowbirds.
Aqua Isles owns the land and services, and the
residents own their own homes.
A local family owned Aqua Isles until two
years ago when it was sold to an outside inves-
tor. The family who owned it are good business
people who also did quiet charitable work both
within and beyond Aqua Isles borders. There
were about 350 winter residents and about 40
permanent residents when Aqua Isles was sold
to this Investment Corporation. The corpora-
tion bought at the top of the real estate bubble
for around ten million dollars. The bubble burst
and the corporation said it would sell Aqua
Isles to its residents for about 16 million dollars.
Some Aqua Isles residents were desperate to
buy and wanted to pay the $16 million in spite
of the park's market value, which is under $6
million. The deal fell apart because of lack of
support from Aqua Isles residents.
So, here we are today. The investor can't sell
the park to its homeowners for a huge profit,
and was forced to revise its business strategy.
It is raising rents by 23 percent January 1, 2010
following a 30 percent increase January 1, 2009,
to the point that rising vacancy rates cause it to
lose more money than the higher rents give it.
In simpler terms, Aqua Isles is losing money
by raising rents. Aqua Isles is down to 28 per-
manent homeowners. That's almost half from
two years ago. This statistic doesn't include un
counted permanent residents who live in small
homes legally classified as RV's. The park is still
excellently managed but has a growing repu-
tation for being overpriced and under staffed.
Why would a savvy investor do this?
The only scenario fitting all my premises,
is it's trying to drive the permanent residents
out, starting with the less expensive homes and
working its way up from there. An example:
Across the street from my home is an empty
lot. An old but very active lady owned a modest
but well kept home on that lot. She couldn't af
ford the rent under the new owner and had to
leave Aqua Isles. Her home was sold for $100 to
someone who towed it away. She's lucky she
has a kind daughter who took her in.
Tomorrow we may have less than 28 per-
manent resident homeowner families. Mobile
homes are rapidly declining in value because of
the excessive rent. Where do senior citizens on
fixed incomes that can't afford the higher rents,
go after losing their home? For many of them
their home was their only financial cushion.


Meanwhile, the investor is recapturing part of
his corporate investment, because even though
rents are going up, home values are dropping
faster than comparable homes in surrounding
retirement communities. People are still buying
homes in Aqua isles because the rising rents
are offset by steeply declining home prices.
Projected income for Aqua Isles will continue
to diminish as rents are raised, so why is the
investor applying this tactic? The only scenario
I can figure that fits with the facts, is it's trying to
eventually drive all the homeowners out of the
park, starting with those on fixed incomes.
Aqua Isles is the most desirable large piece
of riverfront land in LaBelle. If redeveloped into
another use it could draw a higher income, but
the time is not right. The investor could sit on his
ten million dollar mistake and wait for the real
estate market to recover, meanwhile cutting
his losses and getting rid of his homeowners
and other permanent residents by continually
raising rents. Dropping home values will draw
more buyers until the scheme runs its course.
It seems to be a good business strategy under
the circumstances if the investor could afford to
sit on his ten million dollar mistake and ignores
the harm he's doing.
I'm not familiar with the investors and have
no idea where they draw a distinction between
money and kindness, or if their investment cor-
poration even realizes the consequences of its
business decisions. I only know people are los-
ing their homes, so an investment corporation
can minimize its losses from a bad business
decision. It isn't right, and unless stopped will
spread to other homeowners living on leased
land. FL State Senator David Aronberg has
taken an interest in our plight and has advised
us to file a complaint with the Florida Dept. of
Business and Professional Services. That com-
plaint is now circulating in Aqua Isles.
The Senator's heard from many Aqua Isles
residents, but what about those living in LaBelle
Woods, Grandma's Grove, Whisper Creek and
others on leased land? Each of these parks is
locally owned and all have good relations with
their homeowners, as far as I know. But what
happens when their owners retire and an in-
vestment corporation buys the park and wants
to redevelop it into something else?
If you're concerned, call Florida State Sena-
tor Dave Aronberg at 1-877-435-7351 to show
this isn't just an Aqua Isles problem. It wouldn't
hurt to call all your other local legislators as
well.

Cowboys head to Island Coast


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
A disappointed Coach Hal Bennett said
Monday morning that his team should have
beat the Clewiston Tigers Oct. 30. However,
he said he's proud of the boys because their
game showed character . ..
Michael Pittman's 50-
yard kick off return to the
30-yard line was a high
point. The Cowboys were 1
in the endzone in just four -
plays with a Jordan Phillips
pass to Chris Garcia.
After that, they just
couldn't seem to get on Andre Jones
track defensively, coach
said. With lopsided 27-6 score going into the
locker room, the Cowboys made some ad-
justments at halftime. After that, they forced
four for straight 3 and outs.
In the third quarter, Chris Garcia scored
on a 30-yard run and Andre Jones came up
with the two-point con-
version to make it a 27-14 n .
game.
The Cowboys then re-
covered an on side kick
to start a drive that ended -
in a 3-yard score, again by
Chris Garcia. Chris was
also filling in for the regu-
lar kicker who was out sick Chris Garcia
and made the extra point to close the score
to 27-21.
LaBelle got the ball early in the fourth
quarter and, once again, it was Chris Garcia
making the play. He recovered a fumble.
Unfortunately, the Cowboys themselves
fumbled and the Tigers took it all the way
for a touchdown. In the span of just a few
seconds it went from at 27-21 game to a 33-
21 game, taking the life out of the Cowboys,
Coach Bennett said. The
Cowboys struggled, then
rallied, but the Tigers had it
all their way at that point,
upping it to a 40-21 game.
Then, in a two-play '
drive, Garcia hit pay dirt
again with a 67-yard touch-
down, but the extra point
escaped the Cowboys. The Michael Pitman
game ended in a 40-27 loss
for the Cowboys. As expected, it was an ex-
citing game, Coach said, adding, "Clewiston
is a good team but not that much better than
LaBelle. In the second half the Cowboys
came out and played some football."


Chris Garcia was named both Offensive
Player of the Week and Special Teams
Player of the Week. Chris averaged 36.5
yards per punt, putting three of them inside
the 20 yard line. All were in the third quar-
ter.
Practice Player of the Week was An-
dre Jones.
The Cowboys go on the road this Fri-
day against Island Coast in a district game.
They're tough and bigger than the Cowboys.
They have a lot of depth and talent and they
play good ball. Still, according to Coach Ben-
nett, they do have weaknesses to exploit,
but the Cowboys will have to minimize their
mistakes. He said Island Coast has beaten
Lake Placid and Dunbar, but they also have
a lot of turnovers. He hopes to take advan-
tage of that weakness.

November is


Diabetes Month

Diabetes affects your body from head to
toes. This includes your eyes. The most com-
mon and most serious eye complications of
diabetes is diabetic retinopathy, which may
result in poor vision or blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for
damage to the tiny blood vessels (capillar-
ies) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the
back of your eye that captures light and re-
lays information to your brain. These blood
vessels are often affected by the high blood
sugar levels associated with diabetes.
Nearly half of people with known diabe-
tes have some degree of diabetic retinopa-
thy. The longer you have diabetes, the more
likely it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy.
Initially, most people with diabetic retinopa-
thy experience only mild vision problems.
But, the condition can worsen and threaten
your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with
early detection and treatment, the risk of
sever vision loss from diabetic retinopathy
is small. At Family Eye care, we provide di-
lated eye examinations to thoroughly assess
ocular health to prevent the development of
ocular and medical complications of diabe-
tes. Please call our office at (863) 675-0761
for more information.

Art: A dream revisited


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
This tough economy has many people
looking for alternate ways to make ends
meet.
For Jane Ochoa McInturf, that means
digging into a dream she set aside years
ago. Born without her right hand and fore-
arm, Jane is not one to give up, She has
always worked and managed to care for a
husband, three sons and her elderly father.
Art has always been her passion. As a
child she started drawing from comics -
Fred Flintstone and Garfield. That grew
through her school years at Immokalee
High School, where she said her art teach-
er, Marvin Manning, encouraged her to
take it to the next step. She did study art
at Edison College for a year in Fort Myers,
but then got sidetracked by life: marriage,
family, making a living.
Jane was raised in Immokalee, graduat-
ing from IHS in 1974. She, her husband and
their youngest son now live in LaBelle.
She and her husband, Gordon McIn-
turff, have three sons. The eldest is 34. He
attended Immokalee High School and is
now in the Army. Their middle son is 20
and attended college in Iowa on a baseball
scholarship for a while. He now lives in
LeHigh and has made Jane a grandmother
for the first time.
Their youngest is 12, a student at La-
Belle Middle School. He loves baseball just
like his older brother.
Jane also cares for her 81-year-old fa-
ther, Frank Ochoa Sr. of Immokalee.
Jane's husband has always worked
- in security and in shipping/receiving in
Immokalee. For the first time in over 40
years, he is out of a job.
Although Jane is disabled, she has al-
ways worked. She used her art skills, do-
ing some drafting for a time and worked at
numerous jobs.
Also out of a job, she is looking back to
her art as a possible means of supplement-
ing the family income.
Jane especially likes to work in pencil
and charcoal but also works in water color
and oils.
She like outdoor subjects trees, flow-
ers, buildings and will do scenes. She said
she does not do portraits, however.


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Jane Ochoa Mclnturf proudly dis-
plays some of her artwork.
Jane said she has also been diagnosed
with polymyalgia her bones hurt all over,
especially her left hand and fingers. Still,
she says she won't give up her art. In fact,
she's thinking of trying to use her feet to
continue her art.
Jane will be showing and selling some
of her art at the LaBelle Woman's Club art
show, on SR 80W, Nov. 13, from 4-8, and
Nov. 14 from 9-2.
