Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Dobby, a 20-month-old gibbons at The Talkin' Monkeys
Project in Pioneer Plantation, quickly made friends with .
Amy Parker. Amy is studying primates, soaking up all the
experience and knowledge she can glean from Talkin'
Monkeys Project Director Dr. Debbie Misotti. At right:
Dobby enjoys being the focus of the camera.

Knowledge, passion rescue nature


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The way to improve the world
is for those who have learned to
live in harmony with this earth to
pass their knowledge and passion
down to the next generation.
Debbie Misotti has spent a life-
time learning not just to coexist
with the natural world but to use
her knowledge to enhance na-
ture for everyone and everything
in it. Her life's work merely began
with earning three PhDs (envi-
ronmental science, socio-biology
and biology).
As owner of and inspiration
for the Talkin' Monkeys Project
in Pioneer Plantation, Debbie
has dedicated herself to rescu-
ing monkeys. Her facility is also a
showcase of good environmental
practices that can help keep the
world a beautiful place for all
creatures.
Debbie has always shared her


knowledge and passion with stu-
dents of all ages and levels. This
month she is hosting a young Brit-
ish woman named Amy Parker.
Amy is a kindred spirit. She
has also fallen in love with mon-
keys. For Debbie, gibbons are
the focus of her passion. Amy is
drawn to chimps, but, during her
short stay at Talkin' Monkeys, has
also found that she has an affinity
for gibbons.
Amy found the Talkin' Mon-
keys Project on the internet, by
googling "gibbons." She ex-
plained that Debbie's was the
most intriguing response to her
queries because Amy knew she
could help here she would be
valued.
Held up several days by Ice-
landic volcanic ash, Amy finally
made it here in early May and will
return to the United Kingdom at
the end of the month.
During just this short while,
Amy said she has already had


an "amazing time learning" with
Debbie. No stranger to working
with primates, Amy has spent a
lot of time studying them in Af-
rica, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia
and the US, as well as the UK.
Amy has a masters degree in
primatology, but surprisingly, her
work background is in publish-
ing. She was a copy editor for a
celeb gossip magazine in London
and even has a degree in English
Literature. She said she enjoyed
her work, but somehow just
wasn't satisfied. Her interest in all
primates took her over and she
took a year's travelling sabbatical
from her studies to immerse her-
self in their study.
For Amy, the attraction to pri-
mates was the same as Debbie's
- the depth of their amazing, hu-
man-like eyes. She says chimps
are edgy and aggressive with very
human intelligence, but also ap-

Prepare


for bridge


closing
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
No one is looking forward to
the temporary closing of the La-
Belle Bridge this summer, but the
aging structure is in serious need
of repairs.
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) will be closing
the bridge July 5 through August
8 to make the $5 million in repairs
experts say will extend the life of
the bridge about 15 years. Fund-
ing for the repairs will come from
FDOT sources.
The project begins June 1 with
an early 2011 projected finish. The
bridge will be closed 24/7 July
5-Aug. 8. FDOT spokesperson Deb-

'Multi-million

dollar'

opportunity
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
At the April 27 county commis-
sion meeting, County Administra-
tor Judi Kennington-Korf asked the
board to hire a professional in eco-
nomic development to work on a
specific possible "multi-million dol-
lar" opportunity. The possible deal
is very hush-hush at this time, but
could be a very important boon for
the county if it goes through. The

bie Tower said they understand the hard-
ship that will cause, but it is the only safe
way to make the repairs. It is also the most


effective and least costly way, she added.
Although most of the repairs will be
made to the inner workings of the draw-
bridge, residents will notice a nice new
coating sprucing up the bridge when it's
finished. This coating will help the structure
resist wear and the elements.

preciates the gibbons. At the other end of
the spectrum, gibbons are more laid back
and playful.
Thus far, Amy has worked on three ani-
mal projects: lion cubs in South Africa; a va-
riety of animals in Namibia; and orangutans
and chimps in Malaysia where she said the
people there are amazingly welcoming. It's
a beautiful country, she says, and there is
lots of work to be done there.
Asia and Africa are both fascinating plac-
es and perfect for studying primates because
of their lack of facilities and general knowl-
edge of these nearest relatives in the animal
kingdom. There is much to be done there,
Amy said, whereas there is so little space for
such projects in the UK. Primate study there
is mainly limited to zoos, she explained.
The newest resident at Talkin' Monkeys
is Webster, a white handed lar gibbon that
came from a pet shop operator in Fort My-
ers. All Debbie's monkeys have been res-
cued with one exception. Dobby is now
about 20 months old and was actually born
at the facility, an unexpected little bundle
born of two elderly gibbons named Mon-
keyboy and Stitches.
Dobby and Webster live in solitary cages
right now, but Debbie hopes to combine
them in a small familial group natural to
their species. Gibbons, she said, like to be
part of family and have strict social mores.
That includes any human they accept into
their group. If one of the group does some-
thing unacceptable, the transgressor is first
threatened or warned verbally, then the
injured party puts their teeth lightly on the
transgressor's skin or smacks them. Lastly,
they will bite the other monkey, followed by
comforting them (I'm sorry I had to do that,
but I told you to stop.) Tough love.
Gibbons display beautiful family interac-
tion. Bonded pairs hold hands and snuggle.
Animals at The Talkin' Monkeys Project
have the benefit of natural surroundings
while being confined in spacious cages.
Debbie and her husband, Tom, recently add-
ed 12 foot towers to the cages and plan to
network them all together through chutes in
case the monkeys ever need to be moved.
The facility opened in Pioneer Plantation
in 2003, complying with all county permit-
ting and legal requirements. Debbie is also
active community members, providing edu-
cational opportunities for all ages and even
community service hours in conjunction
with the Florida Probation Department.
In her characteristic environmentally
responsible fashion, Debbie has planted
a 30-foot bamboo perimeter around the
compound for acoustics and because it is
an important part of the environment for
many monkey species. She recycles almost
everything and has a trenching system to
deal with the animal waste. Bamboo is also
a wonderful water filter, she said.


The project owns 17.5 acres next to the
compound as a buffer and green ecology
lab. Students from Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity are going to conduct water conserva-
tion and solar panel experiments there.
Debbie's volunteers have dwindled to
about five due to economic constraints.
Having Amy here, even if only for a few
weeks, is a huge benefit, Debbie comments
since Amy is so knowledgeable and skilled
with the monkeys.
Debbie has set up emergency protocols
for all exotic animals in Florida, using pro-
tocols she designed for this facility (on file
with the local, state and federal authorities)
and expanding them to accommodate all
types of animals. She also consults with the
Florida Wildlife Commission.
Debbie's goal has always been to make a
difference a goal she has met admirably for
both her monkeys and her human friends.
She sees Amy starting out toward her goal
early enough to be truly effective.

ties will be alerted to bridge closings via
message boards at prominent locations.
The grating will be replaced and inside
workings, including electrical, mechani-
cal and some structural issues will be ad-
dressed.
Work will continue past August with
some 20 planned overnight (8 p.m.-5 a.m.)
and 20 one-lane closings (8 p.m.-5 p.m.) as
crews complete their work.
FDOT has promised that the bridge will
be open for the beginning of school.
The county will set up emergency per-
sonnel posts on both sides of the bridge
to accommodate any law enforcement or
medical situations that may arise.
Businesses will also feel the pinch while
the bridge is shut down. Coming at a time


when the economy already has many busi-
nesses struggling, the prospect of additional
fuel costs and time to circumvent the La-
Belle Bridge is worrisome.
A law enforcement presence will be sta-
tioned at the old Fort Denaud swing bridge
to ensure the 5,000 weight limit will not be
exceeded.
Traffic headed north or south on SR 29
will be rerouted to the Fort Denaud, Alva or
Moore Haven bridges during the period the
LaBelle Bridge is closed.
The contractor for the LaBelle Bridge will
be Coastal Marine, a company with con-
siderable experience with bascule bridges
(drawbridges). Coastal recently completed
work in Lee County on the Wilson-Pigott
Bridge on SR 31.

board was asked for a $25,000 contribution
to hire a consultant. Commissioners felt this
opportunity is "out of our scope" locally and
agreed to split the cost with EDC, with each
coming up with $12,500.


According to Commissioner Chapman,
this is a "multi million dollar economic op-
portunity . the biggest in this century."
With that type of potential, he saw the need
for a special consultant for job this big.

Accused poachers in custody


Officers with the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission (FWC) use
their extensive knowledge of the woods and
water to track down individuals who are
suspected of abusing our state's precious
fish and wildlife resources. That's just what
happened Thursday night, on a dark country
road in Hendry County.
Knowing that high water forces deer out
of the swamps and up near roads to feed,
officers conducted surveillance on County
Road 832 near Okaloacoochee Slough Wild-
life Management Area when they noticed a
van turning around several times and shin-
ing lights in the woods. Officers stopped the
van and questioned the subjects. Inside, of-
ficers found four deer that had been shot.


Officers charged three Miami-Dade coun-
ty men Lazaro Lopez, 48, of Hialeah, An-
dres Mena Jr., 25, of Miami and Andres Mena
Sr., 45, of Miami with four counts each of
illegally taking deer at night with a gun and
a light during the closed season and four
counts each of hunting from a county-main-
tained road. The men were booked into the
Hendry County Jail on the misdemeanor
charges.
"As this case shows, suspected poachers
will travel long distances to kill deer," said
FWC Capt. Jeff Ardelean. "FWC officers are
dedicated to protecting our fish and wildlife
resources, particularly when they are most
vulnerable."

Panther kittens killed


Two more panther kittens were killed in
the past several weeks.
May 3 at 1 a.m., FWC received a call from
the Collier County Sheriff's Department
about a dead panther on Golden Gate Blvd.,
between 5th and 7th Streets NW, Collier
County.
FWC responded and found that an
8-month-old female panther kitten had been
killed by a vehicle around midnight. The kit-
ten did not have kinked tail or a cowlick and
was not marked previously with a transpon-
der chip. Although no sign of the mother or
other kittens were observed at the scene, the
kitten's carcass was placed in the adjacent
woods to ensure that if the family group re-
turned, they would not be hanging out by
the roadside.
FWC responded to a vehicle killed pan-
ther kitten April 29, in Hendry County at the
intersection of Church Road and S. Church


Road near the Hendry County landfill. The
kitten was estimated to be about six months
old, weighed 32 pounds, was a female, and
did not have a kinked tail, cowlick or tran-
sponder chip.
Because of the kitten's age (still depen-
dant on its mother) and the history with
mothers hanging around the vicinity until
the fate of their kitten is known, FWC left
both kittens near the scene over night in the
hopes that the mothers would find them.
In both cases a remote camera was set up
at the site and when checked the following
morning. No panthers had returned to the
body. The carcasses were removed and tak-
en to Gainesville for a necropsy. The remains
will be deposited with the Florida Museum
of Natural History.
This is the fifth vehicle-killed panther in
2010. Two died as a result of intraspecific ag-
gresion and one of unknown causes.

Relay for Life
The 2010 Relay for Life held at the LaBelle
High School football field May 1 and 2 was
an outstanding event.
A big thank you to everyone who worked,
chaired a committee, judged, helped and
kept the fun and enthusiasm going for the
18 plus hours.
Survivors and Caregivers took their lap
and the Luminaria ceremony was the most
touching ever.
Thank you to Rotary who served the par
ticipants breakfast to show their support and
thanks.
It was exciting to have so many new
teams who worked so hard along with the
experienced teams to help make this a suc-
cessful relay.
Team tents popped up quickly on Sat-

teams left their camp sites spotless.
Thank you to everyone who helped with
the final cleanup.

Reduce drug abuse


Stopping drug and alcohol abuse, oth-
erwise known as prevention, remains the
key to reducing drug abuse locally as well
as nationally. The most effective way to ad-
dress drug and alcohol abuse and its devas-
tating consequences is through education.
Research confirms that if young people
make it to adulthood without experiment-
ing with drugs, they are far less likely to
start using later in life.
Successful prevention will result in less
crime, violence, traffic fatalities, disease,
injuries, child abuse, lost productivity and
addiction. By investing in prevention, the
dire consequences of alcohol and drug
abuse can be averted. According to the
Office of National Drug Control Policy
(ONDCP), current research demonstrates
that for every dollar invested in research-
based prevention, $10 is saved in treatment
costs alone. Of course, no dollar amount
can be placed on the human suffering and
anguish that results when parents witness
a child descending into a lifestyle of drug
use that can end with addiction, prison or
death.
Recent scientific findings on the effects
of substance abuse on the adolescent


brain also underscore the vital importance
of prevention efforts. During early child-
hood, the brain undergoes rapid growth.
Important areas of the brain continue to
develop and mature through adolescence
and young adulthood. Substance use dur-
ing adolescence can disrupt and impair
brain function in the prefrontal cortex and
other important areas that are crucial to
learning, memory, motivation, and judg-
ment. The disruptive effects of alcohol and
other drugs on the developing adolescent
brain can have serious, long-term conse-
quences.

County would like to thank parents--plus
Hendry County merchants who sell alco-
hol--for making an effort to keep alcohol
out of the hands of teens and for sending
clear messages against underage drinking
to youth. Thanks to these efforts, statistics
show that most Hendry County teens do
not drink alcohol. We are asking commu-
nity members to thank local businesses
that are serious about keeping alcohol out
of our teens' hands.


Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor:
This past week, May 2-8, was National
Pet Week. Various organizations such as the
American Veterinary Medical Association
Auxiliary and pet related local enterprises
have called attention to pets and the im-
portance of the human-animal bond. I am
writing to remind everyone that humane so-
cieties and shelters such as the Caloosa Hu-
mane Society in LaBelle are working tireless-
ly 24/7/365 with ever dwindling resources to
provide care for homeless and abandoned
pets that would otherwise have nowhere to
go and no one to advocate for them. I'm sure
by now everyone knows there is a pet popu-
lation problem. Supply has far outpaced
demand. According to the National Council
on Pet Population Study and Policy and the
Humane Society of the United States:
Seven puppies and kittens are born for
every human birth in this country day after
day.
Four million dogs and cats are put

down each year when shelters run out of
space. That's one death every 8 seconds.
55 percent of dogs and puppies and
71 percent of cats and kittens that enter
shelters are ultimately put to death. Some
abandoned pets have a better chance than
others. The young and the small have an
edge. Dogs that are large, black and perhaps
of the "bully breed" persuasion have almost
no chance of leaving the shelter through the
front door. Cats and dogs abandoned on the
street are doomed but for the remote kind-
ness of strangers.
And so, we do have an animal problem,
but we also have an equally serious human
problem. We live in a society where acqui-
sition many times swings on a whim. The
novelty of something newly acquired can

VITA returns $1 million to



low income residents


FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 7, 2010)-- The
United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades and
the Consumer Credit Counseling Service an-
nounced that the total dollars returned to the
Lee, Hendry and Glades lower income tax-
payers by the Volunteer Income Assistance
program was $1,079,000. The announce-
ment was made at a ceremony honoring the
volunteers who prepared the tax returns on
Wednesday, May 5.
Consumer Credit Counseling (CCC) and
the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades
provided free tax preparation services for
hard-working people and their families. The
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program
(VITA) volunteers prepared and submitted
approximately 600 free and confidential tax
returns. The 70 volunteers were trained and
certified by the IRS.
"We are pleased to announce that the
VITA program returned over $1,000,000
to lower income taxpayers at a time when
many of them are struggling to meet living
expenses. The average refund to VITA par-
ticipants was $1,785 which may have pre-
vented the foreclosure of someone's home,
or purchased groceries for a family for sev-
eral months," said Roger Mercado, Director
of Allocations and Community Planning for
the United Way.
A prime goal of the free service is to
help tax payers who qualify for the Earned
Income Tax Credit (EITC) and other similar
credits to receive them. A large number of
taxpayers who could qualify for the EITC
do not claim the credit. Last year, the Con-










FREESUMMERTIME VPK
All children attending kindergarten in
August are qualified to attend this FREE

TER NOW to reserve your child's place
at Kid City. Enrollment is limited. CALL
TODAY 675-7529 or 239-229-1635.

NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNFICANT IMPACT AND
NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS
May 09, 2010
Glades County
PO Box 1018
Moore Haven, FL 33471
(863) 946-6000
These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements
for activities to be undertaken by Glades County.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about June 2, 2010, Glades County will submit a request to the Flori-
da Department of Community Affairs for the release of Community Develop-
ment Block Grant funds under Title I of the Housing and Community
Development Act, as amended, to undertake a project to assist low to mod-
erate income households with the repairs of damage from Tropical Storm
Fay. The following are the activities and budget for the use of CDBG Disas-
ter Recovery Funds:
Replacement Housing: One unit $100,000.00
Temporary Relocation: $5,762.30
Affordable Rental Housing Rehab $28,129.36
Rehab: Two Units $62,009.24
Total: $200,924.00
The activities shall take place in unincorporated Glades County and the City
of Moore Have. The exact locations are unknown.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
Glades County has determined that the project will have no significant im-
pact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact
Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is
not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmen-
tal Review Record (ERR) on file at the Glades County SHIP Office, Commu-
nity Development Building, 198 6th Street, Moore Haven FL 33471 and may
be examined or copied weekdays 8 A.M to 5 RM.

have been satisfied. The State's approval of the certification satisfies its re-
sponsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows
Glades County to use the CDBG funds.

cerbfication for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission
date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are

failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR

To prevent perspiration stains on the
headband of your hat, stick an adhesive
maxi or mini pad or panty liner on the band
where your forehead touches. Replace when
needed. POINT OF ADVICE ... Hook the hat
on securely with a bungee cord in case it
blows off... Saves a lot of 'splainin.


Five ounce disposable drinking cups fit in
an empty Pringles can for trips or camping.
If you are cooking a roast in the crock
pot, or any other method, pour in some left-
over coffee in with it. This makes good, dark
gravy, too. Too many years ago the original
Heloise printed a hint about putting regular
tea in with a roast. It makes it extra tender.


When measuring sugar- .
and flour use a cheap paper
plate for the overflow from
leveling the stuff off. Then
just squeeze the plate in half and pour it
back into the container. I just pop it a few
times to get all of it off and put it in the mi-
crowave to use as a spatter shield.
