Thursday, September 1, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 35 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle With the budget still off b y $500,000, county administration continues to search for ways to balance the 2011-12 budget. On Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. the commissioners will hold their rst budget public hearing in Clewiston. On Sept. 27 the nal public hearing will be at 7 p.m. in LaBelle The commission is also about to undertake the redrawing of count y political districts.Surtax for operationsHendry County will continue to use proceeds from its one cent sales surtax for operational expenses for the upcoming year. Normally those funds are used for infrastructure. At their August 23 meeting, the commissioners approved an ordinance continuing the practice for the next two scal years.Clewiston subof ceAlthough the old subof ce in Clewiston has been razed, plans for a new facility cannot be nalized until FEMA rules on whether or not Hendry County can rewrite a large scale application. If it is allowed, the county could end up with $1.9 million to build the ne w subof ce, which is to be located next to the health department on Olympia. If the request is granted, the total FEMA payment would be $2.5 County struggles with funds, space By Sonja CrawfordHendry County 4-H/Livestock Agent The Hendry County 4-H Horticulture Judging Team captured rst place in the Florida 4-H Horticulture Judging Contest during 4-H Congress in Gainesville the week of July 2529. The team coached by Patricia Gonzalez and Pat Johnson consisted of Wolfgang Lynn, Andy McAvoy, Harry Plamondon and Stephen Woosley. In the Overall Individual Standings, Harry Plamondon led the way by achieving rst place in the competition. For those unfamiliar with the 4-H Horticulture Judging Program, it is a program that provides 4-H'ers with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in identi cation and selection of horticultural products such as vegetables, fruits, owers and ornamentals. This contest tested knowledge of 200 plants that can be found in Florida divided into four categories of 50 each. The categories are Fruit and Nuts, Vegetables, Ornamentals and Flowers. The contestants had to be able to identify the plants by seeing a sample of a part of the plant such as fruit, root, blossom, leaf or piece of bark. The team will continue to practice to compete in the National competition to be held October 7-10, during the National Junior Horticultural Association Conference in San Diego, California. This team is made up of four young men who worked for months in preparation for the competition. If they can raise enough money, they will be representing the State of Florida at the National Junior Horticultural Identi cation and Judging Contest sponsored by the National Junior Horticultural Association taking place in October 2011 at San Diego. They will be tested on 180 plants that can be found in all 50 states. To see the list of these plants go to this Web site http:// www.njha.org/projects_hortid. html.

These piles also present an unnecessary hazard w hen Mother Nature turns mean. How many residents remember w hen Hurricane Wilma slammed through Hendry County? Illegal trash heaps also prevent the county from mowing the rightof-way along roads. It's a problem that has Commissioner Karson Turner seeing red. W aste piles eyesores, hazardsSee Waste — Page 2

million for the entire project. Subtracting demolition and asbestos survey and monitoring, which have already been accomplished, that will leave the $1.9 million for construction. Accepting FEMA money would require that the new subof ce match the old one in function; that is, it must accommodate the same of ces the old one did: Sheriff, Tax Collector, Property Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections, Clerk's Of ce and Court. If FEMA does not come through, the county has about $1.6 million set aside for the project. That gure includes insurance money and $1 million in ad valorem funds. Using this money, the county would not be constrained by FEMA rules that the subof ce would have to house all the same of ces it did previously. In addition, Commissioner Turner volunteered as a fact nding coordinator to meet with Constitutional of cers and the construction team to sort out the needs of each individual of ce and the possibilities for space. The old ASCS building, which is owned by the county, is empty and could house some county of ces if necessary.Moving dayPlans are being made to ready the old Alico of ce and Department of Children and Families buildings for county of ces. The county must vacate its of ces at the Courthouse Plaza by the end of September. County Administrator Judi Kennington-Korf is working with the departments and Constitutional of cers to draft a plan for using that space. The Public Defender, Court Administration, Probation and possibly one state of ce will all be at the DCF building. The old Alico of ce requires upgraded communications by way of a 50 MB line. Such a line was approved for the DCF previously but never installed. The plan is to switch installing the approved line over to the Alico building. Additional phones will be needed. A Survivable Remote Gateway system at the Courthouse Square is to be moved to the DCF building so the Court Administration, public defender and probation can continue to use their existing phones. IP phones will be needed for those moving into the Alico building. The total cost is expected to be $4,000. Boring under Pratt Blvd. from the DCF building to the State Attorney's building will allow of ces in both buildings to use the existing data line. If permitting is not readily obtainable for the boring by Sept. 31 when county of ces will make the move, the of ces located at DCF will temporarily use a copper line.Sheriff’s contingency fund Sheriff Steve Whidden's request for $50,000 from contingency funds for "Operations and Personal Services" brought a suggestion from Commissioner Al Perry that more information be submitted for such requests. Although he learned that these are common requests made by the sheriff, the other commissioners agreed they would like to see more detail on what such funds would be used for. Making the most of assetsCommissioner Karson Turner questioned the need for and wisdom of several requests to remove vehicles from the county's asset list. The commissioners felt the vehicles in question should be usable by some county department. County Administrator Judi KenningtonKorf said she will nd out the status of all the vehicles on the removal list. Medical services in jailThe sheriff's of ce requested a nurse position for the jail from now through Dec. 31 only. A nurse spends 12.5 hours on duty at the jail weekly. The county plans to put out a request for proposals for inmate services and restructure the way care is provided in the jail. Commissioner Turner told the count y administrator the board cannot wait to hear the particulars of such a plan until December. He added that the sheriff's of ce "does a wonderful job monitoring the jail" but he wants time for a proper analysis of the jail's medical and drug programs. Ms. Kennington-Korf said she will wor k on the project and return with information in November. The board approved the nurse position, provided by HRMC, through Dec. 31.

Director of Building Licenses and Code Enforcement Bob Bott said his department follows due process when cases of illegal horticulture waste come up. When code enforcement sees an illegal horticultural waste pile, the rst order of business is to stop and talk to the residents. If they are not home, the of cer leaves a door hanger and returns later, What they want is to get compliance. A lmost everyone cleans up the pile once they've been contacted, he notes. Most say they were unaware that they were not in compliance with county ordinance. If they do not cooperate, however, they are subject to a $140 citation. Once the situation gets to that level, Mr. Bott said it must continue the entire way through the legal system. The result is that the case goes before Judge Sloan in county court and the resident could end up with a $500 ne. Of course, the resident may contest the case. On foreclosed property, the county usually ends up hiring someone to do the clean up and puts a lien on the property. The problem is not a small one, Mr. Bott said illegal horticultural piles take about 20 percent of code enforcement's time, especially when people are trimming back, preparing for a possible hurricane. Mr. Bott said code enforcement tries public outreach, seeking voluntary compliance with county codes rst. Cases take about 58 days to complete, he noted. Two cases were resolved in July, he said, resulting in $500 nes for each. One case involved truckloads being taken to Port LaBelle and dumped; the other involved the owners of a mobile home. WSI Facility Manager David Miller said his company just wants to abide by the county code. In reality, the problem of how residents should dis p ose of waste is not dif cult. It's all set out in black and white. Still, some residents don't seem to get the message when it comes to yard waste. Branches, leaves and grass clippings must be placed at roadside in cans or bags. Make sure to cut branches down to no more than 4' long and 4" in diameter. Bundles, bags and other containers shall not exceed 40 pounds. Horticultural pick up is on Wednesdays only do not set it out with your regular garbage. Remember, you can always compost or dispose of your yard waste in a regulated burn, if you prefer. Other types of waste:Regular garbage pick up North/West Hendry County: Pioneer, LaDeca and LaBelle Rural Areas garbage pickup is on Monday and Thursdays. North/East Hendry County: Montura, Harlem, Hookers Point and Clewiston Rural Areas garbage pickup is on Tuesdays and Fridays. South Hendry County: Garbage pickup is on Mondays and Thursdays. Garbage: Place bagged food and household waste within six feet of the curb in an animal resistant container. To dispose of old washers, stoves, hot water heaters, etc., just call WSI to schedule a pick up. There is no additional charge. Same with old furniture just place it out at the curb along side regular garbage. (No additional charge.) Regular residential car and truck size tires are to be placed at curb along side regular garbage. Maximum of four per household. Hendry County Special Districts and WSI are working on putting on two Amnesty Days, one in October and one in April. Watch for details.

Letters to the Editor Tax billI got my property tax bill and enclosed w as a notice that the Recreational Board had plans to increase the tax for every taxpayer in the county for a skateboard area, basketball court, swimming pool and concession stand, which would also require extra lighting and sod. I would give them the bene t of the doubt that they meant well but I do have some doubts about the money trails that will come out of this. But most importantly I want to remind the board members that just last w eek the local news reported that the of cial unemployment rate for Hendry County was 18.8 percent. Unof cially, that would more than likely mean that the real rate is somewhere in the 20's. They also mentioned that the rate was the worst in the entire state. I commend the Board for thinking of people's comfort and eagerness to be entertained but that doesn't address the problem that many people in this county (including myself) don't have a job. And the food stamps don't cover the costs of all that I consume. I don't have children, but for those that do, what do they tell their kids when they're hungry and could use that (hundred dollars per year)? "Just hang in there, guys. We'll burn some more of our rationed gasoline so that we can drive you to a place where you can shoot some hoops, run your skateboard or take a dip. Then you'll forget all about being hungry, at least for a while." If all of us were employed at decent jobs and working full time, it would be a nice plan, but this is not the time in the midst of a recession to raise taxes for an extravagance when we can't even afford the necessities of life. Why don't they consider making this particular tax an option left up to each individual? This way the residents who can easily afford this tax can volunteer to pay it, while the ones who are suffering won't have to add to their misery. And if there aren't enough volunteers to make the payments, that would mean the taxpayers really have spoken and positively don't want to make such an expenditure at this time. And doing what the taxpayers want is what the people in government are supposed to be doing. This way, the Board wouldn't have to threaten the less fortunate residents by taking measures to hold their homes hostage if they don't comply with the tax that is not essential or practical right now. By the way, whose idea was it to buy sod when grass seed is many times cheaper and the labor to disperse the seed is practically nil? And this is summer, so you guys wouldn't even have to water it. The public hearings on increasing the recreation assessment will be held Tuesday, Sept. 13, in LaBelle City Hall at 5:05 p.m. and at Clewiston City Hall that day, at 5:30 p.m. Darrell BairSidewalksThe sidewalks on Park Avenue are in deplorable condition. I have noticed that sidewalks have been repaired in several parts of the town, some where no one walks. Park Avenue is across from Baron Park and heavily traf cked by pedestrians whenever there is a function in the park. The cracked and broken condition of these sidewalks might pose a liability to the city should someone trip and fall. Maybe someone in city maintenance should look into this. Thank You, Mark SchoenwaldD. C. “Shakeup”Following up on the 5.6 magnitude earthquake that struck D. C. on Tuesday, a group of seismic scientists have settled on what they consider to be the cause. They indicated that it was due to our "forefathers" turning over in their graves. Furthermore they concluded that the quake happened along the "it's your fault line that runs from the White House through the Capitol." Thereby satisfying the long overdue "shake-up" in the White House and Capitol. Talking about "shake-ups," I understand that Obama is really getting a "feel" for what the "common" man is going through in today's economy as he continues his vacation on Martha's Vineyard island resort. It all stems from an attitude, and incidentally, it's important that we all have one. That established, I think it's time we all tune out all the fear mongering and take a personal attitude inventory, and our existence in total. We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers. wider roads but narrower viewpoints. We spend more but have less. We buy more but enjoy less. We have bigger houses, but smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We more degrees, but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, but yet more problems, more medicines, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch too much T V and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values, we talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life, but not life to years. As you can see the list is endless and all starts with not only having an attitude, but what you do with all the options that our God-given lives have been blessed with. I am convinced that those same options in concert with a positive attitude hold the ke y to "taking our country back." Now that God has delivered his message to the White House and Congress, it is beholden for us to capitalize on the "shakeup" and force them to "shape up!" Exercise your options at the ballot box and direct that attitude full force in any and every way you can until they "get the message" that you are not taking no for an answer anymore! T. W. Bill Neville Structured Job Searchby Matt KindermannThere are hundreds of job search Web sites on the internet such as Monster, CareerBuilder and Indeed. Many people nd that the results of a job search on one of them produces similar results on the others. Most of the larger job search Web sites use a search engine technique called a spider, where a search for a certain keyword, let's say "accounting," will spider web out to all the different job boards to return similar results, or "hits." However, do not just limit your job search to one Web site because some companies may contract with a single site to post an exclusive job opening that you wouldn't be able to nd anywhere else. As a rule of thumb, use all the common job search sites when looking for a job. When you receive a hit on a job search, go to that company's Web site to see what other jobs they have available. Sometimes, good jobs get shuf ed to the bottom of the results list because job spammers repost their openings every day. Most companies only post their open job once. What happens is that the daily re-posts push the others to the bottom of the results list and "bury" them. By going to a company's individual careers page, you will be able to see all the available jobs, not just the one at the top of some list. When you nd a company you're interested in, bookmark that Web site in your favorites list and visit it two or three times a week. Another simple technique is to go to 411.com or YellowPages.com and search for an industry you work in. Get the list of all the companies and visit each of their Web sites, making sure to bookmark them all and visit them every day or every other day. My job search bookmarks has several folders and subfolders of favorites, and even I visit most of them daily. It's true that nding a job is a full time job! Some jobs posted on-line are structured to only take a certain amount of applications, or stay visible for a certain amount of time. So, when a particular job has received its allotted applications it will close automatically. If you are interested in a job you see on-line and it does not list a "closing date," do not hesitate to apply because it could close automatically after a few applications and you'll miss the opportunity. New unemployment rules are requiring claimants to apply at ve jobs a week, which is causing some job postings to close quickly because of ample applications. If you are actively looking for a job, you should be applying for ve jobs a day! This will result, statistically, in about two to eight interviews a week. Apply everywhere. When you stop for gas, shop for groceries or buy a shing pole, ask for an application.

Open pulpitFor the last 33 years that I’ve been Pastor at LaBelle Assembly of God, we have had a program called open pulpit. The purpose of this program is to have a place where people who feel called to preach actually have a place to preach. We are working on upgrading this program and opening it to the public. Preaching is not really a classroom activity it’s more onthe-job training. The only way preachers actually get experience is by preaching during a Congregational service. This not to suggest that theology is not important, because it is. The open pulpit program is simply designed to give God-called ministers the opportunity to perfect their craft so that they can respond to their calling of God. This also extends to worship ministry music and prayer. If this sounds interesting to you please call 675-0900 for a interview.

Powerful audio/video footage of Rachel's Challenge holds students spellbound, followed by a 45-minute training session involving both adult and student leaders. That evening the Rachel's Challenge presenter conducts a powerful session with parents and community leaders. To sustain the positive climate change in a school, Rachel's Challenge offers a year-long curriculum called the Friends of Rachel (FOR) program that continues training students and plugs them into activities that continue the chain reaction of kindness. Darrell Scott, Rachel's father, founded "Rachel's Challenge," a bullying and violence abatement program. Rachel's Challenge will be in LaBelle on Wednesday, September 7. LaBelle High School students will attend an assembly in their school and selected students and teachers will attend the Leadership Training later in the school day.

Sports Shorts by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Former LaBelle High School football kicker Rey Hernandez has signed a professional contract with the Florida Tarpons. It is a professional indoor football team based in Estero, Florida. They are set to begin play in the Ultimate Indoor Football League for the 2012 season! They will play their home games at Germain Arena. Arena football has been around for several years. It differs from the outdoor game because it naturally, is played on turf and there are no sidelines just walls around the playing eld. The goal posts are shorter than the standard eld and the eld itself is only 50-70 yards long. That means players must adjust to the size limitations. A kicker, like Rey, must compensate for the difference by kicking lower and shorter. "This is another opportunity for me," Rey said. In LaBelle, Rey played for Coach Mitchell Wills in Pop Warner two years and was the kicker for the LaBelle High School Cowboys. Rey said as a Cowboy he learned to keep pushing himself. Hernandez is a 2008 graduate of LaBelle High School and was one of the top kickers in the area at the time. He went on to play Semi-Pro ball in Naples after graduation for Collier-Carnage before making the Tarpon squad. The Tarpons are a rst-year team and they have signed a three-year contract with Germain Arena. "Rey had a lot of things against him in high school that a lot of people don't know. This is a great accomplishment for him and I am very proud of him not giving up on his dream. He has worked hard for a break and truly deserves this opportunity. I am really proud of Rey and look forward for the season to start!" said his former LHS Coach Ron Dunbar. Rey also works at Sal Cal Pizza, and is currently the manager. Now a coach Cowboy special teams coach, Rey is excited about the upcoming season. As a player, Rey said Coach Ray Dunbar made an impact on Rey by in uencing him to "Never, never give up on yourself." It was a lot of motivation, he said, adding, "I'm a positive person not a negative one." Rey continues to have hope for a future in the NFL. "I'll keep working," he said, "till I get my shot." The Tarpons plan a ribbon cutting at the Tarpons of ce, 13723 Jetport Commerce Parkway, Ste. 13, Fort Myers. Tuesday, September 6, 4:30-6 p.m. The season for Southwest Florida's ne w hometown team begins in March 2012.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Departments decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the Department’s proposed action; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department’s proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 396211 CN 9/1/2011 IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TWENTIETH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA, IN AND FOR HENDRY COUNTY CIVIL DIVISION CASE NO. 08-1231-CA OCWEN LOAN SERVICING, LLC Plaintiff, VS.

A free admission pass for two is available at http://www.crackercountry.org/home The LaBelle Heritage Museum Board o f Directors has endorsed Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day at Cracker Country and is encouraging its members and anyone else interested in going to Cracker Countr y to meet at 360 North Bridge Street, the ne w location of LaBelle Heritage Museum, at 8 o’clock on the morning of September 24 to “car pool” to Tampa for the event. Students at this semester’s Florida History class at the Hendry/Glades Center of Edison State College here in LaBelle are already talking about attending and mentioning this special Smithsonian Magazine Museum to their families and friends. This day trip is endorsed and being loosel y organized by LaBelle Heritage Museum, but it is not limited to LaBelle Heritage Museum members or current Edison State College Florida History students. Anyone wishing to participate in the day’s activities is welcome to join us. Please e-mail labelleheritagemuseum@ comcast.net, or leave a message at (863)6740034 if you plan on attending or would like additional information. Some may plan on meeting at the entrance to Cracker Countr y about 10:30 on the morning of Saturday, September 24; while others may want to car pool or caravan from the new LaBelle Heritage Museum location at 360 North Bridge Street in LaBelle. Let us know if you can accommodate any riders, or if you will need a ride yourself. (It was suggested offering the driver $10 a person would be the neighborly thing to do if you will be riding with someone else. $10 is not extravagant for a round-trip ride from LaBelle to Tampa and back.) A picnic lunch at Cracker Country may be the best way to handle the noon meal since there are no restaurant facilities at Cracker Country itself, only some snacks like peanuts and vending machines. There are picnic tables at the entrance to Cracker Countr y if we decide to pack picnic lunches.

by Matt KindermannThe LaBelle Rotary Club was visited this past Tuesday by the Rotary District Governor Denise Hearn. Mrs. Hearn is one of only 535 District Governors in the world, and was elected this year to represent District 6960, which includes all the local Rotary Clubs in the eight-county region composed of Manatee, DeSoto, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties. Rotary International is a worldwide organization of business professionals and community leaders that promote ethical standards and humanitarian assistance, and currently has local clubs like LaBelle in over 200 countries. Mrs. Hearn spoke to local Rotarians about the organizational goals of the 20112012 year, which included the new Rotary slogan “Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.” The District is planning two annual projects, which include a WWII Veterans Honor Flight and a Literacy Project. The Honor Flight is scheduled for Spring of 2012 and organizers are planning on sending about 80 local WWII veterans, their guardians and a medical team, to Washington D.C. The veterans will take a one day tour of the capital memorials, including a ceremonial parade featuring the veterans. The cost is anticipated at about $500 for each veteran and will be paid for by Rotary through indiv idual and club donations. The Literacy Project is a locally focused endeavor to provide “Read to Me” t-shirts and children’s books to the most in-need of the individual communities. Mrs. Hearn applauded the contributions of the LaBelle Rotary Club and shared that our District was in the top 15 of all Districts for charitable giving during the 2010-2011 year. Of course, Rotary cannot be as productive if it were not for the support of the community. This year, the LaBelle Rotary Club is hosting a golf tournament fundraiser on Saturday, October 8, at the Verandah Club in Ft. Myers. The cost is $90 per player. There will be a shotgun start at 8 a.m. with teams of four. Lunch is provided and team prizes will be awarded for rst, second and third places. If you’re interested in playing golf, would like to be a hole sponsor or are able to donate company logo merchandise or other tee gifts, please contact Andy at 863-6753903. Your contributions help fund these local projects. If you’re interested in helping sponsor a veteran on the Honor Flight, please contact Col. Jerry Hearn (Ret.) at 941-907-8013.

For instance, nine-year-old James Galusha had the time of his life training dolphins in the Keys. A fourth grader at Country Oaks Elementary, James and his family just moved here from the Keys, but he got to spend a good portion of his summer at the Dolphin Research Center Grassy Key in Marathon. His grandmother, Rebecca Rhodes, is the Director of Volunteer Research there. His mother, Jennifer Wingard, said he’s v isited there many times, but this summer he spent a solid three weeks there, packed w ith the experiences of a lifetime. The center is home to 22 Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. Of those, James said 16 were born there, the rest had been rescued or came from other facilities that could not take care of them. Some of those born there are actually descendants of Flipper possibly the most famous dolphin ever, with his own TV show. James’ summer included everything from helping his older sister in the gift shop stamp v isitors’ hands to hands-on dolphin training. James said he helped out in the sh house cleaning buckets and then feeding the dolphin from them. He’d throw sh from the bucket into the dolphins’ mouth. His summer was lled with activities most of us can only dream about, like hugging sea lions. These huge marine mammals have mostly nice dispositions, he said, but they w ill bark if they’re feeling a little unsure. James described how trainers get the dolphin to follow them around the pool by throwing sh and ice chips into the water. J ames held on to the dorsal n as the dolphin learned what was expected of him. J ames was helping to train adult dolphins, w hich weigh in at about 600 pounds. Dolphins love to play and easily become bored, so trainers also use whistles to call the dolphins back when they tire of the routine. They love to do tricks like front dives, back and spiral dives. Another trick the dolphins learn is to mimic sharks by only allowing their dorsal n to show above water and moving their tail back and forth instead of their natural up and down motion. The training is “all about what they want to do,” James said. The animals feed off the crowd’s energy so a lot of clapping and hollering really gets them excited and ready to show off. The dolphins live in a natural lagoon on the Gulf side of the key. Gates and fencing keep the dolphins in and predators out. However, the barriers can be lowered to let the dolphins out when foul weather threatens. They usually return on their own, but last year staff had to pick one up in the Bahamas. Often, the return of the dolphins from the ocean signals a small baby boom. The oldest dolphin at the center is 45 years old; the youngest in just one. James has lots of information on dolphins, like baby dolphins cannot swim or breathe. They are entirely dependent on their mothers, who also need a helper to assist then in this 24/7 labor of love. James made lots of aquatic friends at the center like Louie, a two-year-old teenage dolphin, who was rescued by the Coast Guard from Louisiana during the oil spill in September 2010. At that time he went to the Audubon Nature Institute. He was the rst live dolphin to be found stranded. In February 2011, he came to make his home at the center. At his age, dolphins still rely on their mother without human intervention, he would not have survived alone. The nonpro t center relies on tourism, which James’ work indirectly supported. Staff tries to encourage social interaction among dolphins and they usually adjust well to their new surroundings, James said. Just nine, James has a lot of time to decide what he wants to do with his life when he grows up, but his experience with some of nature’s most fascinating creatures will surely be a part of him forever. Dolphins: experience of a lifetime Submitted photoNine-year-old James Galusha made friends with lots of dolphins and other animals at Dolphin Research Center Grassy Key Marathon this past summer.
