by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Getting off on the wrong track doesn’t mean you have to stay there. Think Drug Court. It sounds like a place you wouldn’t want to end up, but for many people whose lives have been taken over by alcohol or drugs, it’s salvation. Hendry County Drug Court Program Services Coordinator Marcia Salmon attended the National Association of Drug Court Professionals conference in Washington. DC, last week. She returned with renewed vigor for the program and lots of ideas for simple improvements and contacts with other Drug Court programs throughout the country. One project she would like to implement in Hendry County is a Friends of Drug Court non-pro t group that would be able to help raise money to help new Drug Court graduates with housing or school needs. The funds would be reimbursed as the graduate is able. Program alumni would be participants in the organization. Hendry County Drug Court began in 1994. In 2010, there were seven graduates. Unfortunately, thus far there have been no graduates in 2011, but the program is set up on an individual basis. Participants in Hendry County Drug Court have taken some very big steps toward their own recovery by reaching out to help others. They spend time at the United Way House, making repairs, painting and helping pass out food for the hungry with the Harry Chapin Food Bank. In fact, members spend 30-40 volunteer hours per week at the United Way House. According to Arlene Betancourt of United Way, these folks help organize clothing, keep the shed in order and help ensure these United Way programs run smoothly while sharing their hopes for the future. The group meets at the United Way House nightly from 7-8 p.m., opening their doors to anyone who feels led there. Drug Court participants feel drawn to help others. For instance, Marcia Salmon, Program Services Coordinator for the 20th Circuit Court, said Drug Court participants paid for and prepared most of the food for their May 20 Feeding the Hungry free lunch at Barron Park. It was quite a spread, including barbecued ribs, corn on the cob, homemade cole slaw, hot dogs, watermelon and cookies.

Christopher D. Strickland. Our community, lead by the American Legion Post 130, Veteran’s of Foreign Wars, Post 10100, Disabled American V eterans, Chapter 144 and Loyal Order of the Moose, Lodge 2398, responded to this loss by creating our city’s Veteran’s Park. An ongoing project LaBelle’s new Veteran’s Park has involved members of the community, local business and the city commission in honoring our community’s fallen heroes. In memory of Chief Warrant Ofcer Hammett and Sgt. Strickland the city of LaBelle Commissioners proclaimed July 26 as a time to remember and honor these great men. True to their wish of honoring the memory of our city’s fallen heroes the same four civic minded organizations which spearheaded the construction of the park held a remembrance event honoring these men on Saturday July 23, at the LaBelle Veteran’s Park. Community leaders in attendance included LaBelle’s Mayor Paul Puletti who presented a check for one-thousand dollars to the American Legion Commander Tony Alvarez in memory of City Commissioner Easten Burchard. Mayor Puletti spoke of Burchard’s incredible generosity and leadership most recently on the Pollywog Apartment complex. Additional speakers included American Legion Chaplain Herb Zoelner, American Legion Commander Tony Alvarez, DAV Commander Bob Schall, VFW Commander Bob Middleton, American Legion Auxiliary President Sharon Touching service for Fallen Heros Submitted photo/ Waddy ThompsonA member of Boy Scout Troop#9 lays a memorial brick after Saturday’s tribute.

They sought donations from attorneys and others who also assisted in getting donations. LaBelle City Hall’s Relay for Life team donated bottled water. Last year the Drug Court group from LaBelle played the Clewiston side in a softball game. LaBelle lost but it didn’t dampen their enthusiasm for meeting the world on their own terms. This year the LaBelle group decided to give back to the community. They even entered a oat in the SCF parade in February. The group’s next community project will be to bring some of the at-risk juveniles from Marcia’s juvenile program to watch a Drug Court session. There they plan to talk to the kids show them the “end game” if they continue down the wrong path. Dubbed their “social director” and chef for the free lunch, Drug Court participant Steve Donaldson and his group put the w hole thing together. At this time ten participants are active in Drug Court; three are inactive two went into a residential facility and the other one to jail. It is a stark reminder of what can happen if they don’t make it in this program. In Drug Court, each participant is sponsored by someone who has already been through the program and has gotten their life together a safety net built into the system. Casey Rodriguez is in the sixth month of the 12-month program. She sees herself as more positive now with positive thoughts, getting the tools to live her life the way she truly wants to. She calls it “Life without destruction.” Casey was busted for possession of cocaine while on probation for possession of marijuana, Her probation of cer got her into Drug Court. It’s changed her whole direction, Casey said, adding that she got started with the w rong people, the wrong atmosphere. In Drug Court, “the people are awesome,” she said with a smile. Now she works for Clark Mosquito Control. She wants to get her CNA license back and continue in the health care eld. She said she’s learning to adjust to life. Her three boys, aged 20, 11 and 5 are a big incentive. “They’re good kids,” she said, and proud of the progress she’s made. Another Drug Court participant, Ruel Montez, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine in 2009. He said his drug of choice was marijuana, but he got caught trying to sell meth. It’s a familiar story wrong crowd older boys drinking and doing drugs. It looked like fun. At 25, Ruel said he’s done it since 13. He was transferred to Drug Court from Collier County because he could not afford to live in Naples where his probation of cer wanted him to go. Ruel lives in Immokalee and said he’s “doing way better . I’m not paranoid any more, waiting for a knock on the door.” He’s working as a window framer now and wants a better life. He’s thinking of cutting hair something he’s always liked to do; maybe nding a way to include another lifelong hobby, drawing. He might end up getting a CDL. Whatever avenue works out for him, he’s determined to do it clean. Substance Abuse Coordinator Denise Knox has been in LaBelle for six months and in her profession for 15 years. She’s impressed with the Drug Court program here. “There’s some kind of heart in this town I haven’t seen anywhere else,” she muses, adding, “we really need some type of half way house here.” Looking around at the program participants so involved in the Drug Court activities, she said, “These people want a new life. They won my heart. They need a recovery community.” “They’re all smart, intelligent, bright, creative that all needs to be reinforced, They’re thought of as criminals that’s what drugs do. They deserve credit for their spirit.” “Six months ago there was not a lot of peace for these people. They were sad, rushing, didn’t see any hope. Now they’ve blossomed,” she comments. “When hearts connect, lives change,” Denise said. 2 Caloosa Belle July 28, 2011 CourtContinued From Page 1 Leventhal, representing the American Legion District Thirteen Dennis Bruland and representing the VFW District Eric Risch. All stressed the importance of honoring our nation’s Veterans, both living and fallen, as well as the sacri ce families of service members make. Following the remembrance event a ceremony was held to lay bricks engraved with the names of local veterans throughout the park. It is indeed true that freedom is not free, however, so long as our brave service men and women are willing to ght and die not only to protect the freedom and equalit y of our country’s citizens but to liberate men and women living under oppressive regimes the world over, our great nation will continue to serve as a shinning city upon a hill.

Better known as the Grandparent Scam, it works like this. Typically the grandparent receives a distressed phone call from someone pretending to be his or her grandchild. There are several variations to the scam but usually the supposed grandchild explains that he or she is traveling in Canada or Mexico and is in some kind of trouble, ranging from an arrest to an auto accident. The con artist pleads with the grandparent to wire money to post bail or pay for damages, usually amounting to a few thousand dollars. As part of the scam the grandparent is asked to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram, right away. Scammers sometimes contact people randomly. They also use marketing lists, telephone listings and information from social networking sites, obituaries and other sources. Sometimes the scammers don’t know the names of the grandchild. For instance the caller may say “Hi, grandma,” hoping that you actually have a grandson. If you ask, “David, is that you?” the scammer will say “Yes!” Often these crooks will call in the middle of the night and take advantage of the fact that you may not be awake enough to ask more questions and you may not want to disturb other people by calling them to con rm information. If you realize you’ve been scammed, contact the money transfer service immediately to report the scam. If the money hasn’t been picked up yet, you can retrieve it, but if it has – the money is gone. If you get a call or email from someone claiming to know you and asking for help, ask some questions that would be dif cult for an imposter to answer like the name of the person’s pet, or the date of their mother’s birthday. Try to contact the person who they claim to be directly. If you can’t reach the person; contact someone else, a friend or relative. Don’t send money unless you’re sure it’s really the person you know. Beware of the Grandparent Scam

Most of what comes my way is worth responding to, saving, ling for later events, etc Then there is the email that gets the "deep six" action, never to be heard from again. This past week I received an email that nailed me right between the eyes. I read it then re-read it again. It was powerful. I am including it in my article this week. It is true and is told in a very moving way by a mother of three kids. It happened one day at a McDonald's as a family was there for breakfast. I hope it impacts you as it did me. I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college degree. The last class I had to take was Sociology. The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every human being had been graced with. Her last project of the term was called, Smile.' The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their reactions. I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway. So, I thought this would be a piece of cake, literally. Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went out to McDonald's one crisp March morning. It was just our way of sharing special playtime with our son. We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone around us began to back away, and then even my husband did. I did not move an inch... an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of me as I turned to see why they had moved. As I turned around I smelled a horrible dirty body' smell, and there standing behind me were two poor homeless men. As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was smiling'. His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God's Light as he searched for acceptance. He said, Good day' as he counted the few coins he had been clutching. The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend...... I realized the second man was mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman was his salvation. I held my tears as I stood there with them. The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted. He said, Coffee is all Miss' because that was all they could afford. (If they wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something. He just wanted to be warm). Then I really felt it the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and embraced the little man with the blue eyes. That is when I noticed all eyes in the restaurant were set on me, judging my every action. I smiled and asked the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a separate tray. I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid m y hand on the blue-eyed gentleman's cold hand. He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, Thank you.' I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, I did not do this for you. God is here working through me to give you hope.' I started to cry as I walked away to join m y husband and son. When I sat down my husband smiled at me and said, That is why God gave you to me, Honey, to give me hope.' We held hands for a moment and at that time, we knew that only because of the Grace that we had been given were we able to give. That day showed me the pure Light of God's sweet love. I returned to college, on the last evening o f class, with this story in hand. I turned in m y project' and the instructor read it. Then she looked up at me and said, Can I share this? I slowly nodded as she got the attention of the class. She began to read and that is when I kne w that we as human beings and being part o f God share this need to heal people and to be healed. In my own way I had touched the people at McDonald's, my son, the instructor, and ever y soul that shared the classroom on the last night I spent as a college student. I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I would ever learn: UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE Much love and compassion is sent to each and every person who may read this and learn how to love people and use things, not love things and use people. Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart To handle yourself, use your head. To handle others, use your heart. God Bless you. Now, go be a blessing to someone.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist located 200 yards behind A Country Place restaurant in LaBelle on Highway 80.

I live in Port LaBelle. If my grass gets over six inches high, I get a letter from PLB Unit 4 saying I am not complying with PLB rules. I will later get a ne if not cut. The Greenbelt behind my home is over 3 FEET HIGH. All of us here in PLB Unit 4 pay $180 per year for the greenbelts to be mowed and the pool maintenance, etc. The grass is so high, it can have snakes there. I am afraid to let my child go into our back yard. No telling what kind of animals could be lurking there. Since they are so quick to send us a letter when our grass is high, should we all send them a nasty letter and, de nitely a ne, for THREE FEET! I do hope the POA staff reads this and replies to us.Pet peevesThrowing stuff out of car windows into ditches and roadsides. Trash all around cans at driveways. All the junk one owns piled all out in the front yard. Men and women with pot guts hanging out from under way too small shirts. People that don't even acknowledge you when you stop to allow them to cross in front of you in a parking lot. Screaming kids in public places. Cigarette butts in the sand at the beach. Most of all: Feet up on the headrest of the seat in front at the movies! My head goes there...not nasty feet! For that matter, feet up on any public seating.

FAMILYEYECARE(863)675-0761www.familyeyecarelabelle.com PATRICK STEWARTAGENTElizabeth Mendoza, CSR100 South Hall Street, Suite A LaBelle, FL Bus:863-342-8156 Fax: 863-342-8167 e-mail: stewartinsgroup@gmail.com 5 Caloosa Belle July 28, 2011 by Pat DobbinsWith only a few weeks left of summer break, parents are probably thinking about getting their child ready to go back to school. Along w ith school clothes and school supplies, parents should make sure preventative health measures are included on their child’s back-toschool checklist. Success in school starts with keeping students healthy and safe. Parents should take their children to a healthcare provider for an annual “well-child” check-up and to make sure all vaccinations and medical records are in order. Healthy eating, adequate physical activity and good sleep patterns are also instrumental to success in school. Parents should talk with their children about traveling safely to and from school. This includes planning safe routes for walking or riding a bike, reminding them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing the street only at designated crosswalks, and showing them how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if they are riding a bike to school. If your child is old enough to start driving a car to school, please remind them of some of the basic rules of the road. Don’t be afraid to talk to your teen about safe driving. Allow them to take Driver’s Education if it’s offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle insurance company about programs available to teach teens about safe driving tips. Children in Florida should never have to be without health care. Insurance can improve a child’s access to medications and treatment they may need to control childhood illnesses and decrease absences from school. The state of Florida offers KidCare, a health insurance program for children from birth through age 18. Children can be eligible even if one or both parents are working. Children covered by Florida KidCare are eligible for comprehensive health care, including sports physicals, doctor visits, check-ups, immunizations, surgery, prescriptions, vision and hearing screenings, mental health care, dental check-ups and hospital stays. Students with access to these and other preventative health care services are likely to be healthier and perform better in school. For more information about KidCare, visit www. FloridaKidCare.org or call 1-888-540-5437. Back to School health, safety and well-being Pat Dobbins It’s time for school physicalsHendry Regional Medical Center is all set to provide physicals for the children in the community. Summer is still in full swing, but the rst day of school will be here before you know it. If you haven’t already scheduled an appointment for your child’s school or sports physical, now is the time to do it – don’t wait! Often, school physical examinations are the only times throughout the year that children visit a medical facility. We suggest using the yearly school physical as an opportunity to build and add to a child’s complete medical history. This can help ensure that the youngster’s progress and development over time are monitored and that potential emerging problems are detected. Don’t get caught up in the last minute rush, schedule physicals for your school-aged children today. Call the Convenient Care Center in LaBelle (863-6752356).Breakfast at schoolHendry County Schools offer breakfast at no charge to all of their students, every school day. Breakfast times may vary from school to school, so check with your child’s school of ce for the time schedule. Breakfast is the most important meal and needs to be a part of your child’s educational day. The National School Breakfast Program was enacted to ensure that school children are being served a nutritious breakfast daily. Studies have proven that higher academic and social achievement occur when breakfast is consumed. Make sure that your child starts off his day right with breakfast at Hendry County Schools.Sunshine State Books available at Barron LibraryBecause of a generous donation from the Swamp Cabbage Festival Committee, Barron Library was able to purchase the full collection of the Florida Sunshine State Young Reader Award Books for 2011-2012.

This year the American Legion was able to sponsor four juniors from LaBelle High School, all National Honor Society members. (From left to right) Humberto Salinas, Andy McAvoy, Lane Goodwin and Carl Baker, Boy’s State Chairman standing in the back. Shamus Samerdyke, (sub-photo) also attended, but due to an attack of appendicitis, was rushed to surgery and was forced to come home one day early. Mr. Samerdyke was voted in as a Senator, wrote and sponsored a bill that was voted and passed on the “mock” Senate oor. Shamus did complete the course and received his Senate pin. Boy’s State delegates are chosen after a rigorous interview process from high school juniors with at least a 3.2 grade point average, as well as leadership qualities. This is a comprehensive one-week leadership course in state and local government, developed to offer our youth a better perspective of the practical operation of government and to show that the individual is responsible for the character and success of government. Delegates who are selected to attend this program “learn by doing” as they progress through the various phases of government.

The organization, which is based in Orlando, represents 1,500 watermelon growers, shippers and importers. “I want to thank the National Watermelon Promotion Board for making this possible,” said Chastain. “They’ve been on board with us for a couple of years now in the Fastruck Series and late models. I’m glad to nally get the chance to live the dream and run with the big boys. I’m going to be running against the best of the best at Indy and I’m just glad that they stuck behind us and are looking to take the next step like we are. I’ve been dreaming about this for a long time and I’m glad that it’s nally coming together.” Although this will be the rst start for Chastain in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, it is not the rst exposure to NASCAR for the NWPB.
