Preventive care saves infant lives County


You probably noticed the pin-
wheels covering the lawn at the
Hendry County Courthouse sev-
eral weeks ago.
To honor babies that have died,
1,000 + pinwheels were placed in
a "memorial garden" during a cer-
emony that was held on Thursday,
September 23. The Hendry County
Board of County Commissioners
issued a proclamation recognizing
September 23, as Infant Mortal-
ity Awareness Day. Patrick Comer,
veteran newscaster and member
of the Workforce Development
Board, was the master of ceremo-
nies. Kyra Oliver, from the Hayes
Foundation, discussed the topic
of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syn-
drome). Cathy Cortez, Executive
Director of Healthy Start Coali-
tion of Southwest Florida read the
proclamation and presented infor-
mation about infant mortality and
about the Healthy Start program.
LaSheba Travis, Program Man-
ager for the Hendry County Health
Department was also one of the
guest speakers at the event.
The Healthy Start Coalition of
Southwest Florida's statement
is: "Saving Babies' Lives through
Preventive Care." They continu-
ally strive to reduce the number
of infant deaths, and the number
of premature or low birth weight
babies, throughout southwest
Florida.
Healthy Start is a not-for-profit

agency serving Hendry, Glades,
Lee and Collier counties since
1992. They help 17,000+ at-risk
pregnant women and babies each
year.
Their goals are to prevent in-
fant deaths and premature babies,
and promote health and develop-
mental outcomes for children up


to age three. The infant mortality
rate in Southwest Florida has de-
creased by 55 percent since the
program began (1992-2008).
In 2008, in Southwest Florida,
155 babies were born still born, or
died before their first birthday, and
921 babies were born too small or
prematurely placing them at-risk

for future health and developmen-

of fetal and infant deaths is the
health of the mother before she
gets pregnant.

ing an unhealthy birth, $6 is saved
in neonatal intensive care costs,
recurrent hospital and medical

Courts cutting case backlog


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
How does the old saying go?
The wheels of justice turn slowly?
That still may be true, but in
Hendry County judicial officers
are working to reduce court time
and costs associated with housing
nonviolent misdemeanor arrest-
ees.


County Judge James Sloan pro-
vided an update on two programs
- pretrial release and case manage-
ment for county commissioners
at their Sept. 28 meeting.
According to Judge Sloan, dur-
ing its first six months the pretrial
release program conservatively
kept residents out of lock up for
491 days, saving $39 per day for a


total $19,149 in savings to the jail.
In addition, this was time non-
violent offenders could remain at
their jobs and with their families.
Defendants have 72 hours to
come up with their bond to be
released. If they cannot, then they
may be considered for pretrial

millage
by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Hendry County continues to
tighten its belt. The county's 2010-
11 village rate will remain at 6.5
mills, which includes a 14 percent
decrease in total taxes and repre-
sents a $1,962,955 loss in ad va-
lorem taxes.
The funding was made up using
part of the one cent sales tax rev-
enue, $337,716 from the disaster
relief fund and a reduction in the
base health insurance plan. Com-
missioners said money borrowed
from the disaster relief fund previ-
ously has been paid back.
The county's total budget stands
at $11,699,674.
The millage rate and budget
passed 5-0.

Impact fees
Although the county suspended
the collection of impact fees on
new development, Commission-
ers voted to keep the ordinance
on the books, including an inter-
local agreement with the Cities of
LaBelle and Clewiston. Impact fee
authorization was signed in 2005
for a five-year term.
The interlocal agreement in-
cluded a $25,000 contribution to
each of the cities to an escrow ac-
count for LaBelle's downtown de-
velopment and Clewiston's CRA.

release. Judge Sloan chooses prospective
pretrial release candidates and does all first
appearances.
Central in the program is the case man-
agement officer, who interviews all partici-
pants for first appearance and does a cover
sheet for the judge outlining additional in-
formation. Previously, the judge had only a
booking sheet as background for a defen-
dant at first appearance. Now background
information includes things like if they are
a resident and for how long, their ties to
the community, if they're employed and for
how long. All this information speaks to the
defendant's potential eligibility for pretrial
release.
If accepted, the defendant must report
to the case manager once a week and she
notifies them of court dates.
Judge Sloan told the commissioners that
Circuit Judge Christine Greider runs the
case management program. He said the
disposition rate for these cases prior to the
program was 97-98 percent. Now the court
has a 119 percent disposition rate, which
means they are finally clearing the backlog
of cases.
He said Judge Greider moves them out
faster than they come in.
The program allows a greater number of
cases to be disposed of more efficiently, he
said.
For this program the case manager
schedules conferences with the defendant.


There is a time line set by the judge for each
case and the case manager works to make
sure all parties (state attorneys, defense at-
torneys, the defendant) meet their responsi-
bilities in a timely manner.
The case management program also
allows the State Attorney's Office to work
on more complex cases without getting
bogged down by routine ones. Therefore,
attorneys can spend more time on each of
those cases.
In addition, the court also saves the post-
age it would otherwise spend to send out
notices of upcoming legal procedures to
defendants.
Other advantages: the defendant is there
in court to hear first hand what is going on
in their case and it gives them an opportu-
nity to touch base with their attorney.
Judge Sloan said there are three catego-
ries of offenses:
Expedited These are simple felonies;
Standard Offenses like possession of
cocaine, burglary, grand theft;
Complex White collar theft, murder,
sexual batteries. These are cases that take
more time to prepare.
The category helps determine if a defen-
dant is a good prospect for the case man-
agement program.
When a person comes into the court
system and is accepted into the case man-
agement program, they sign a notice which
informs him of what to expect, including a
schedule of court appearances and other
legal requirements. Judge Greider said the
defendant is advised of what to expect and
when their case may be resolved.
Judge Greider compared the entire sys-
tem to "spinning plates," and this program

Public hearings
A request to rezone four acres on SR 29S
to high intensity commercial on two parcels
(3019 and 3049 SR 29S) from convenience
commercial. The lots are surrounded by ag-
ricultural, commercial and urban residen-
tial. The request had been approved by the
Local Planning Agency and got the county
commissioners' approval, 5-0.
The board also approved a request from
Southeast Renewable Fuels' special excep-
tion for agricultural processing. The firm
wants to process sweet sorghum, wood
chips or molasses to produce fuel grade
ethanol. It would also produce excess elec-
tricity which will then be sold to Glades
Electric.
The site will include two manufacturing
plants, one for dry ice and one for fertilizer.
The fertilizer plant will process waste mate-
rial from the ethanol plant. The plant is ex-
pected to provide 47 jobs. Owners are in the
process of acquiring permits at this time and
hope to start construction in a month with a
start up date of September 2012. They also
plan a gas station there to promote the use
of E85, an alcohol fuel mixture containing
up to 85 percent denatured fuel ethanol and
gasoline or other hydrocarbon. The 84-acre
site at 1844 CR 835 is bounded on all sides
by agriculture.
There was some discussion about turn-
ing lanes, but the special exception was


granted, 5-0.

Holiday meetings
Traditionally, the county commission
only sets just one meeting in November and
one in December, due to the holidays. How-
ever, this year commissioners opted to meet
twice in November. The November 9 meet-
ing will be held in Pioneer Plantation at the
community center and the Nov. 23 meet-
ing will be in LaBelle as usual. The Dec. 14
meeting will be held at Clewiston City Hall
as usual no meeting on Dec. 21.

helps keep everything moving along, add-
ing that the system doesn't work unless the
people in the system work in an expeditious
and judicious manner.

We've seen positive results and
continue to look for programs.
Judge Sloan

Resident and bail bondsman Kirk Jame-
son, a critic of the program, said it's good
as long as cases move through. He said he
was afraid that if Judge Greider leaves Hen-
dry County, cases might stack up again.
Commissioner Karson Turner agreed
that Judge Greider is the "cog in the ma-
chine we never had before" and noted that
there is pressure for her to go to Naples. The
commissioner added that Judge Greider
"cleaned house" and said that, without her,
the program would have gone nowhere.
However, 20th Circuit Court Operations
Manager Sheila Mann told that board that
the system will work regardless of who sits
on the bench because it holds everyone to
strict guidelines. A new judge coming in
will not have any discretion to change the
system.
The higher goal of the program is to re-
lieve jail overcrowding.
Sheriff Steve Whidden agreed that the
chronically overblown jail population has
declined now, with more nonviolent mis-
demeanor offenders being released. He
said the jail population has been reduced to
some 188 inmates in the six months, and
said that many of those are given a notice

to appear rather than incarcerated. He said
they are once again looking for federal in-
mates to house a program which actually
makes money for the jail.
He said about 25 percent of notices to
appear are written for no valid driver license
offenses.
One of the pluses for these programs,
Judge Sloan said, is that they are not funded
by tax money but through court fees. The to-
tal budget for the Department of Case Man-
agement for 2009-10 was $59,137 which
includes $8,500 for operations and $40,087
in salary all of which came from the Fines
and Forfeitures Fund. Only $33,418 was
spent on salary because the case manager
was not hired right away. Some $6,668 was
actually expended for operations.
In spite of the good report, Judge Sloan
said they really need a full year to accumu-
late more meaningful figures. "We've seen
positive results," Judge Sloan said, "and
continue to look for programs."

Letters to the Editor


Be aware of bed bugs out there!


Why more housing?
Anyone wondering about the fiscal di-
rection the Obama group is taking us only
has to take a drive down Jaycee/Lions Dr..
Look to the left, across from the DMV, and
you will see where your hard earned tax
dollars are going. A huge housing complex,
funded by Obama's Department of Agricul-
ture, is under construction. What you see is
only phase I. There is more to come. Why
on earth is more housing being built when a
large portion of LaBelle housing is for sale?
Why is another housing project being built
in LaBelle when housing projects all over the
country are being torn down because they
all became incubators of crime and corrup-
tion? Wouldn't it be more fiscally prudent for
the DOA to buy housing that already exists
and integrate the potential tenants into the
community? Maybe it's just another case of
"out of sight out of mind" because most of
the country has no idea where LaBelle, FL is
and will never see how their money is being
spent. We sure do need a change, a fiscally
conservative change.
Mark Schoenwald, LaBelle

To the thief who stole from
Caloosa Baptist
Last Friday night, the Youth Room at
Caloosa Baptist was broken into. A large
TV and a computer were stolen. As if that
wasn't enough, on Saturday night, the Chil-
dren's Ministry Room was also broken into
and things were stolen out of it.
Though locked, the doors were pried


opened, entered and property was stolen.
The owner, God, is fully aware of who took
what belongs to Him. He who never sleeps
was watching.
The following is a message to the thief
(or thieves) who stole God's property.
The Lord has entrusted to us as His
people everything we have. You broke into
God's house and stole some of those articles
He intended to be used for discipleship,
changing lives and His eternal purposes. We
have prayed for you, and asked the Lord for
the following:
1) that you would be convicted by God
for your wrong
2) that you would repent before Him
3) that if you came to our church that we
would love you and accept you as a forgiven
person, just as we are, by God's grace.
There was another thief to whom Christ
made a promise of forgiveness. He was on
one side of the cross upon which Jesus was
crucified. That man received hope of an
eternal pardon that day. You can, too.
We forgive you. Please come clean with
God. He will forgive you, too.
The Congregation of Caloosa Baptist
PS: If you know of someone who has re-
cently acquired a large TV and a computer
and you are not aware of how the person
could buy one, please contact us at 863-675-
HOPE. Those TV's may belong to God. You
don't want God's stolen property in your
house.

Caloosa Baptist Church, LaBelle

Bed bugs are making a comeback! Bed-
bugs feed on the blood of sleeping humans
and animals and can live several months
without eating. Research on bedbugs is lim-
ited, but they are not known to spread any
disease. The problems arise from allergic
reactions to the bites, or wound infections
from people scratching the bite areas.
The living space for bedbugs is not spe-
cific to beds. They can live in the cracks and
trims on the walls and
floors, along baseboards,
in dressers and draw-
ers, in four homre, curtains,so Dobbins

and in picture frames. to
Bedbugs have noexcellent "hitch hikersing
to do with cleanliness,
although you should "de- Patricia
clutter" your home so Dobbins
that there would be fewer
places for the bedbugs to
hide. Bedbugs are excellent "hitch hikers"
They crawl into personal items such as
purses, hand bags, brief cases, luggage,
stuffed toys, travel pillows or they can even
crawl into the flap of your shoe or hang out
in the overhead storage areas on planes until
they find their next ride!
Some people think that hotels are the
biggest risk for bedbugs, but reports of in-
festations have included libraries, offices,
theaters and retail stores.
The initial bite of a bedbug is usually
painless and it usually leaves a red swollen
area similar to a mosquito bite. The bites are
usually located on the face, neck, arms and

bedbugs, inspect your sleeping area thor-
oughly, lifting up the mattresses and check-
ing around the framework. They can leave
dark specs (bug excrement) and you can
sometimes see small bloody smears on your
sheets and pillows. They also shed (leave
behind) layers of skins/shells. They are usu-
ally active at night and they are large enough
to be seen.
Extermination seems to be the only way
to get rid of these creepy pests for sure. There
is no quick-fix and many experts say there
is no "miracle" pesticide. It usually takes at
least two treatments to get rid of them in
your home.
The best thing is prevention. If you travel,
check the hotel bed areas thoroughly. Once
you've arrived home, put clothes, hats,
blankies, stuffed animals, etc. in the washer
and dryer in case any bedbugs are trying to
"hitch a ride" into your home. Be careful of
any items that you purchase at yard sales
and second-hand stores. Make sure you in-
spect the items thoroughly!
Other studies suggest that dry cleaning,
freezing temperatures, and high heat (wash-
ing in 120-degree water, steaming infected
areas and drying on high, 120 degrees for
extended periods) can kill the bugs.
There have been some infestations in
Florida, but these have been mainly in areas
with high volumes of out-of-state travelers.
Some studies suggest that places that do not
require year-round air-conditioning seem to
be more susceptible to bedbugs, but please
stay on the lookout for these creepy pests!

Dear Sirs,
On behalf of the Ballard Family and La-
Belle Revival Center we would like to ex-
press our deepest gratitude to the Gathering
of Christian Men.
These men went far and beyond their call
of duty when they volunteered their services
for the Ballard Family Benefit. They gener-
ously donated all the pulled pork, several
coolers full of bottled water and coolers of
ice. They supplied all of the paper goods and
utensils needed for 300 dinners and, as if
this were not enough, they showed up with
a tent, oil, seasonings and everything else
needed to fry the gator meat. They spent the
entire day cooking, and stayed to do all of
their own clean up. What a blessing to all
involved!
The benefit was a great success, and
above all, these men were reflections of
God's love. Their hands, along with God's
hands, reaching out to others, in their time
of need!
We are not only blessed for knowing this
wonderful group of men we call The Gather-
ing of Christian Men, but we were all blessed
that day to watch this group of men give of
themselves, and of their faith. Thank you so
much for your generosity, and love!
Pastor Lester Grant

Teen Court Program is now in session Church Briefs


Teen Court for this academic year started
with training and orientation on September
7. An enthusiastic group of 16 students from
LaBelle High School attended, including four
who were returning from last year.
We were honored to have the services of
six adult attorneys along with Judge Sloan,
who graciously played their part in training
the students in all aspects of court proceed-
ings.
An online video from another Florida
Teen Court Program augmented the session,
as the students watched a real-life teen court
session. In a question and answer session,
the students gave the feedback and indicat-
ed the roles that they would like to assume
in their first actual teen court session.
On September 21, 2010, the first case was
heard and the students did very well. The
teen attorneys delivered themselves in such
a professional manner, prosecuting and de-
fending the issues in the case. The Clerk,
Bailiff and Jurors took their roles seriously
and soon the verdict was read, with the Jury
Foreperson explaining the reasons for the
sanctions given.
Judge Sloan, in his role as teacher and
coach, took the time to analyze the proceed-
ings, and as usual, he offered great advice
to the students. We also welcomed one stu-
dent from Clewiston High School, who was
the lead defense attorney.
It was a real joy to see the commitment
of the students as they embarked on the
road to a possible career in the law-related
field. Please encourage them to continue
developing their skills and apply the lessons
they learn in court to help their friends and

Keep a nice bas-

and every time
you find a piece
of a game, toy, puzzle
or unidentifiable object
just drop it in. Once a week find
their rightful home...
Always clean your shower right after
you've taken one. The steam will loosen
the scummy stuff. Just before you step out
spray the cleaner all over and get out, dry
off. Put on a robe and do a few chores while
the cleaner goes to work. In 5 or 10 minutes
get back in and do any necessary scrubbing
and rinsing.
I can't believe its October already. There
is sooooo much to do. I must get my broom
detailed, oil changed and stuff like that...
I had a piece of one of Debbie Woodford's
soooo good cakes last night. She earns her
name as "Cake Lady."
To keep from having holey walls, use
sewing pins instead of tacks to hang light
stuff on the walls. When I was young, yes, I
WAS young once, I glued my posters to my
bedroom wall. It wasn't until I was a mom
with my own walls that I understood why
my mom freaked out.

LHS boys cross country


8th in Titusville


The LaBelle High School boys cross-
country team ran well in its biggest race of
the year on Saturday. The "Running Cow-
boys" placed eighth overall out of 36 teams
at the 11th annual Florida Runners Invita-
tional in Titusville.
"Overall, the boys ran well, and it
showed," said coach Jef Frost. "But they
have a long way to go and must improve
if they wish to reach their desired goal of
qualifying for the state finals on Nov. 20."
Based on their performance Saturday,
the Cowboys would have finished first
or second in the Open Small School and
Open Large School races, but they would
have finished close to last in the Race of


Champions.
"It's like comparing apples to oranges,"
Frost said. "Maybe we would have run bet-
ter in the Race of Champions or worse in
the Open races. You just don't know."
The Cowboys were led by Gabriel Bar-
ron, who finished fifth with a time of 16:31,
and Caleb Baker, who was 13th at 16:41.
Both received medals for finishing in the
top 15. Erick Medina (17:58), David Miller
(18:14), Carlos Santillan (18:21), Andy
McAvoy (19:31) and Val Alsina (19:54)
rounded out the team scoring for LaBelle.
The team's next big race is Saturday at
the Second Annual Lehigh Invitational at
Shell Point Golf Club in Ft. Myers.

body forgot to tell that to the LaBelle High
School team.
The young Cowgirls won nine of their
first 12 matches and are hopeful of returning
to the regionals after placing second in the
district last year.
"We're very young after graduating three
seniors, but we returned two of our key play-
ers and I'm seeing a lot of improvement as
the season goes along," said Lori Perkins, in
her fifth year as head coach.
Winning the district will be very difficult
this season, as defending district champion
Bishop Verot has the inside track.
"We lost to Bishop Verot on Sept. 7, but
came closer than we did last season," Per-
kins said. "We've got them again on Oct. 12
at our place, so it will be interesting to see


what happens."
Key players for the Cowgirls are junior
setter Kendall Marotti with 71 kills, 138 as-
sists and 18 blocks through a dozen match-
es; junior libero Gennifer Raulerson with 93
serve receptions and 51 digs; sophomore
middle blocker Andrea Lutkenhaus with a
team-high 73 kills; freshman outside hitter
Abbie O'Ferrell with 60 kills, 93 serve recep-
tions and a team-best 58 digs; and senior
server Kindall Tindall.
"Kendall runs our offense and is a very
good blocker," Perkins said, "while Gennifer
is our defensive specialist.
Other team members are senior Court-
ney Bancroft, juniors Ashley Cruz and Sa-
vana Cheney, sophomore Kayla Keller, and
freshman Rachael Reinbott.
The Cowgirls took on Gulf Coast, away,
on Oct. 4.

LHS students look toward careers


College & Career Day was held on Sep-
tember 23, in the LHS gym and auditorium.
Lucas Talada and Ben Cross, LHS Seniors
and School Guidance Assistants, coordi-
nated the annual event that provides our
students with the opportunity to research
higher education programs, opportunities
and interest.
Representatives from Florida and out-of-
state colleges, secondary schools, technical
schools and the Armed Services were on
hand to talk to students about their institu-
tions/programs. Students learned about ad-
missions requirements to the various two-
year and four-year colleges and universities.
Professionals also participated and an-
swered student questions about careers in
culinary arts, child care, accounting, cos-
metology, law enforcement, law, veterinary


medicine, optical care and banking. Students
were informed of degree requirements, sala-
ries and other important knowledge about
the different career fields.
LHS is very grateful to Grant Aguilar -
from Hyatt Hotels; Jackie Caro from the
RCMA; Chris Soud from Higginbotham
and Soud;, Merry Kelly from Sissi's Place;
Officers from the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office; Mark Lapp the County Attorney;

LaBelle; Belinda Facundo from Family Eye
Care; and Maria Sandoval and Katy White -
from First Bank of Clewiston. Thanks to all of
them who participated in this year's event.

Caloosa Belle


Consider state



amendments

By Katrina Elsken
Special to the Caloosa Belle
Nov. 2 Florida voters will decide the fate
of six amendments proposed to the state's
constitution. This is the first of a four part se-
ries about the proposed amendments.
Amendment #1: Repeal of Public
Financing Requirement
Ballot Summary: Proposing the repeal
of the provision in the State Constitution that
requires public financing of campaigns for


elective statewide office who agree to cam-
paign spending limits.
Sponsor: The Florida Legislature
Background: In 1987, the Florida Legis-
lature established public financing for those
running for statewide election. In 1998, it
was approved by 64 percent of the Florida
voters as a constitutional amendment.
2005: the Legislature voted to triple the
amount of campaign funding candidates
could raise and still qualify for state funding.
2010: a candidate for governor could
raise $24.9 million and still qualify for public
funding.
In the last election, candidates for gover-
nor and the four Cabinet offices received a
total of $11 million in public funding.
A "yes" vote on Amendment #1 would
repeal the public financing system and stop


using tax dollars to help fund campaigns.
A "no" vote would keep the current pub-
lic financing system in place.
In favor: It is too expensive to run for pub-
lic office; without public financing only mil-
lionaires can afford to run for office; without
the availability public funding, incumbents
have an unfair advantage.
Against: Florida tax payers can't afford
to give millions of dollars to political cam-
paigns, most Florida candidates have been
successful in raising enough money for their
campaigns even without the public funds;
the increase in the amount candidates are
allowed to raise and still receive public fund-
ing defeats the intent of the plan.
Florida is one of only ten states with this
program.
Supporters: Those encouraging voters


HENRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Puil Progression: Promotion/Retention
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute social promotion. Florida Statute 1008.25 requires that any student who
exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading, based upon locally determined or statewide assessments conducted in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3 must be given intensive reading
instruction immediately following the identification of the reading deficiency. The student's reading proficiency must be reassessed by locally determined assessments, or
through teacher observations at the beginning of the grade following the intensive reading instruction. The student must continue to be provided with intensive reading instruction until the
reading deficiency is remedied.
If a student's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated by scoring at Level 2 or higher on the statewide assessment test in reading for grade 3, the student
must be retained.
The parent of any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading must be notified in writing of the following:
1. That his/her child has been identified as having a substantial deficiency in reading.
2. A description of the current services that are provided to the child.
3. A description of the proposed supplemental instructional services and supports that will be provided to the child that are designed to remediate the identified area ofreading deficiency.
4. That if the child's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, the child must be retained unless he/she is exempt from mandatory retention for good cause.
5. Strategies for parents to use in helping their child succeed in reading proficiency.
6. That the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is not the sole determiner of promotion and that additional evaluations, portfolio reviews, and assessments
are available to the child to assist parents and the school district in knowing when a child is reading at or above grade level and ready for grade promotion.
7. The districts criteria and policies for mid-year promotion.
8. Each school district shall provide written notification to the parent of any student, who is retained because his/her reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of third
grade, that his/her child has not met the proficiency level required for promotion, and the reasons the child is not eligible for a good cause exemption as provided by Florida law.
The notification must include a description of proposed interventions and support that will be provided to the child to remediate the identified areas of reading deficiency.
Successful Progresesion for Retained Readers
The 2004 Legislature amended section 1008.25, Florida Statutes, to create a new paragraph (7) that provides that all students who are retained in third grade must be provided intensive
interventions in reading to ameliorate the students' reading deficiency, as identified by a valid and reliable diagnostic assessment. This intensive intervention must include effective instruc-
tional strategies, participation in the school district's summer reading camp, and appropriate teaching methodologies necessary to assist those students in becoming successful readers, able to read at
or above grade level, and ready for promotion to the next grade.
This section also requires each school district to establish at each school, where applicable, an Intensive Acceleration Class for retained third grade students who subsequently score at Level
1 on the reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The focus of this class shall be to increase a child's reading level at least two grade levels in one year. The
school is required to report the following:
Mid-Year Promotion
According to provisions in the Hendry County School District Pupil Progression Plan, students who were retained the previous year may be considered for mid-year promotion provided the
student has demonstrated the ability to read at grade level and shows mastery of the state standards for the grade level in which he/she was retained. The student must have the skills nec-
essary to successfully function at the grade level to which he/she is being promoted mid-year.
Good Cause Exemption from Mandatory Retention
The Hendry County School Board may only exempt students from mandatory retention for good cause as stated in Florida Statute 1008.25. According to this statute, good cause exemptions
shall be limited to the following:
1. Limited English proficient students who have had less than two years of instruction in an English for Speakers of Other Languages Program.
2. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates that participation in the statewide assessment program is not appropriate, consistent with the requirements
of State Board of Education rule.
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on all alternative standardized reading assessment approved by the State Board of Education.
4. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that he/she is reading on grade level as evidenced by demonstration of mastery of the Sunshine State Standards in reading equal to
at least a Level 2 performance on the FCAT.
5. Students with disabilities who participate in the FCAT, and who have an individual education plan or a Section 504 plan that reflects that the student has received the
intensive remediation in reading for more than two years but still demonstrates a deficiency in reading, and was previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2.
6. Students who have received the intensive remediation in reading for two or more years, but still demonstrate a deficiency in reading, and who were previously retained
in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2 for a total of two years.
The district school board must annually report to the parent of each student the progress of the student toward achieving state and district expectations for proficiency in reading, writing, sci-
ence, and mathematics. Student results on each statewide assessment must be reported to the parent. The evaluation of each student's progress must be based upon the student's classroom
work, observations, tests, district and state assessments, and other relevant information.

to vote "yes" on Amendment # 1 include the
Republicans in the state legsisature, led by
Sen. Mike Haridopolus.
Opponents: Democrats iare encourag-
ing voters to say "no" to Amendement #1,
as well as Common Cause of Florida and the
League of Women Voters.
Amendment #2: Tax Break for
Deployed Military Personnel
Ballot summary: Proposing an amend-
ment to the State Constitution to require the
Legislature to provide an additional home-
stead property tax exemption by law for
members of the United States military or
military reserves, the United States Coast
Guard or its reserves or the Florida National
Guard who receive a homestead exemption
and were deployed in the previous year on
active duty outside the continental United
States, Alaska or Hawaii, in support of mili-
tary operations designated by the Legisla-
ture. The exempt amount would be based
on the number of days in the previous cal-
endar year that the person was deployed on
active duty outside the continental United
States, Alaska or Hawaii in support of mili-
tary operations designated by the Legistla-
ture. The amendment is shceudle to take
effect January 1,2011.
It would provide an additional homestead
property tax exemption for members of the
US military or reserves, the Coast Guard or
its reserves, or the Florida National Guard
who receive a homestead exemption and
were deployed in the previous year on active
duty outside the continental United States,
Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military op-
erations designated by the Legislature.
Sponsor: The Florida Legislature (unan-
imously passed both houses)
Background: Supporters of this bill seek
to help military service members and their
families while the service member is de-
ployed overseas.
Those in the military reserves often face
financial hardships when they are called
up for active duty overseas, due to the dif-
ference between the reservist's pay from a
civilian job and his or her military pay. The
family of any military service member de-
ployed overseas may also have additional
expenses. The amendment only applies
to military service members and reservists
who own a home in Florida and already
qualify for homestead exemption.
In supporting the amendment, the Mi-
ami Dade County Commission passed a
resolution stating: "The property tax credit
proposed by SJR 1302 and HJR 833 would
serve to help military families when one or
more family members are deployed over-
seas, especially during these trying econom-
ic times."
In opposing the amendment an editorial
in the St. Petersburg Times stated, ""Florid-
ians who are serving their country in the
military during times of war should be hon-
ored.
Supporters: The Florida Legislature
unanimouslyy passed by both houses),
Governor Charlie Crist, Veterans of Foreign
Wars (VFW), the Miami Dade County Com-
mission, the Bradenton Herald.
Opponents: The St. Petersburg Times
editorial board and the League of Women
Voters of Tallahassee.

lines Center for Public Policy web site www.

What a Day! Kiwanis Kid's Day was a success!


What a day it was! Bounce houses,
stuffed animals, popcorn and sno-cones all
free for the kids to enjoy! Saturday, Sept 25,
was another successful Kiwanis Kid's Day at
Barron Park. There seemed to be more kids
than ever, but there was plenty of fun for ev-
eryone.
This was the first year for "Kid's Got Tal-
ent" and the judges (Phill Pelletier, Martha
Pierce and David Childs) had a tough time
deciding on a winner, but 11-year-old Emily
Schwartz sang her way to the top. She was
the winner for the 9-12 year old division.
Sadie Gaskins (8) and Sarah Sodrel (7)
won the prize for the 8 years and under di-
vision. All of the kids were winners though
because Beef O'Brady's and Wendy's of
LaBelle donated gift certificates for all of the
contestants.
Kiwanis provided trophies for the win-
ners and United Way donated backpacks full
of school supplies.
Many thanks to Ace Hardware for donat-
ing two bicycles that were raffled off for only
50 cents a ticket. One lucky winner, Keven
Frederick, only spent $2 on raffle tickets and
he was excited to hear that he had won the
