Thursday, September 15, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 37 Dr. William Richardson Susanne Bengston Cardiologist, nurse practitioner open of ceby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Through the years many LaBelle residents have been patients of Nurse Practitioner Susanne Bengston, who has built up an enviable reputation. Now, Ms. Bengston is nally realizing a longtime dream. She is opening her own of ce in LaBelle, along with cardiologist Dr. William Richardson. An interventional cardiologist for 26 years, Dr. Richardson also has an of ce in LeHigh Acres. He will be seeing patients in LaBelle beginning in October. Dr. Richardson also practiced in Belle Glade and Pahokee years ago. LaBelle patients can now receive special cardiac treatment here in this of ce, including: stress tests, echocardiograms, halter monitors, nuclear stress tests and non-invasive External Counter Pulsation (ECP) therapy. A native of Bronxville, New York, he has been in Florida for seven years. He began his medical career as a family doctor from 1982-88 after graduating from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1981. He then interned at Southeastern Medical Center in North Miami Beach in 1982. He was an Internal Medical resident at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital from 1989-90 and accepted two cardiology fellowships: one at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, Michigan; the other at Franklin Square Hospital in Philadelphia 1990-91. He then worked for an optional third year at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey, in interventional cardiology. Dr. Richardson felt called to cardiology. He explained, "A lot was going on at that time. Cardiology was advancing so rapidly with new technological developments and treatments for conditions underlying heart disease . angioplasty and by-pass, pacemakers and nuclear cardiology. It saves so many lives. [Cardiology] allows us to intervene in care. It was the right time to be in this profession." He looks forward to even more advances including the ability to treat heart patients using catheters, without having to open the chest and "fascinating" new cures for atrial brillation. He said he's wanted to work in LaBelle since 2003 because it is underserved by specialists, he said, adding that he has trained Susanne in the basics of cardiology, taught her to See Page 4 for information about how to contact the newspaper See Doctor — Page 2 See Islam — Page 2 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Now that the City of LaBelle's new reverse osmosis water treatment plant is about to come up for bids, the next step is for the commission to consider what the new water and sewer rates will be. Rates will need to be adjusted in order to cover the cost of construction. Mayor Paul Puletti brought up the rate adjustment at the city's regular meeting Sept. 8. He said he dreads the thought of it, but "it needs to be done." The new RO plant should dispel any lingering water quality issues like color and odor. A hearing is being planned to discuss new rates.Recreation district assessment passesOn Sept. 13 both the LaBelle City Commission and Hendry County Board of County Commissioners met at approximately the same time, on opposite ends of the county, to discuss the proposed increase to the HendryLaBelle Recreation assessment. Both the cit y and county passed the increase unanimously, although there has been much dissension on the issue. The votes clear the way for an increase in rec assessments for recreation from Pioneer Plantation to Felda from $75 to $100 per year.

Rock Aboujaoude is a longtime Hendry County resident. He is a Lebanese Christian who has spent more time in this country longer than he did in Lebanon. "I'm more American than Lebanese," he noted. Rock points out that all the 9/11 hijackers were extremists, not average Middle Easterners. "There is a phobia about Middle Easterners," he commented, "but it should be about extremists. Typical Muslims do not think that way," he said. "There are a lot of good people everywhere," he continued, "and problems everywhere," adding that bad things happen when ideas go too far. A former Hendry County engineer who now runs his own business, Rock had only been working w ith county for several months on Sept. 11, 2001. That day he was on Islam, also a casualty of 9/11

That way, even when he is not in the LaBelle of ce, cardiac patients, or potential patients, can still receive the necessary care. Susanne has been a nurse practitioner since 1997. Before that she was a registered nurse and started out as a paramedic in Hendry County, beginning in 1981. She received her RN from the University of the State of New York and her Masters in Family Nursing Practitioner from USF in Tampa. "It's been a dream of mine for so long to open a practice where I could work my w ay," she explained. Susanne said she likes to take her time with patients no "cattle calls" at her of ce. She is thrilled to be w orking with Dr. Richardson, whom she describes as a "brilliant cardiologist." She has known Dr. Richardson since 1991 when she w orked in the ER at LeHigh Medical Center. She also recently trained in cardiology under him for three months so she can effectively help out with his patients and do follow ups. They are both enthusiastic about opening this of ce together. It's a nice t, they agree, since they have the same belief system. Both believe in compassionate health care. At their of ce, they plan to provide patients with their undivided attention. In addition to primary care, Susanne can treat lacerations, minor burns, sprains, strains, do sutures and minor surgical procedures, and will see sick children of all ages. Their receptionist is Paulita Urbanowski. She has been in LaBelle for 11 years and worked in real estate and another medical of ce. She may also assist Susanne as necessary. Their of ce is open Monday through Friday 8-5, but will adapt a schedule to LaBelle's needs. Walk-ins are welcome and when necessary Susanne will do on-call home visits to the elderly for follow ups. They accept Medicaid and Medicare along with all major insurance. There is no sliding scale. The of ce is located at 461 S. Main Street, Ste. A. Call 674-0271. Dr. Richardson and Ms. Bengston are looking forward to growing with LaBelle. Islam Continued From Page 1 BillsContinued From Page 1 DoctorContinued From Page 1 The City of LaBelle was prepared to go so far as to withdraw from the West Hendry Rec District if the increase was not approved. The mayor has said that the city has paid its fair share into the board for years and perhaps received half its contributions back one year. The additional revenue will be used to complete ve ball elds at the new Sports Complex planned for Forrey Ave. The city is committed to building the complex to add amenities to this area that will serve residents as well as attract outside visitors. Because the Hendry-LaBelle Rec District is an interlocal agreement between the city and county, both must agree to the same assessment. Mayor Puletti explained that the city is only seeking a 50 cents per week increase to nish the ball elds that kids from all over the western side of the county use. He pointed out that the area needs amenities to bring in traf c and money, noting that for the rst time ever LaBelle lost residents last year. Mayor Puletti added that LaBelle helped outlying communities build rec facilities and w as proud to help. Now the city needs that support, he said. The Hendry-LaBelle Rec Board is made up of Paul Puletti and Dave Lyons from the City of LaBelle, Darrell Harris and Tris Chapman of the county commission and Pat Langford from the school board.MillageThe board also set the city's tentative millage rate at 3.3810 for 2011-12 as listed on the TRIM notice. The nal public hearing on the millage and budget will be Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 5:05 p.m. The millage may still be lowered at that time, but it cannot be raised.South LaBelle Village The path is open to begin construction in South LaBelle Village, now that the LaBelle City Commission unanimously approved the South LaBelle Community Development of Regional Impact (DRI) on Sept. 8. South LaBelle Village covers approximately 1,018 acres on the north side of the huge parcel south of LaBelle annexed in 2004. The DRI will allow mixed use of lots there, setting aside 25,000 residences, 50,000 square feet of of ce space, 300,000 square feet of retail space, 50,000 square feet of medical of ces and also space for some quasi public areas for parks, schools, etc. Water supply and the road network have been the big stumbling blocks in getting this area development on track. his way to Tallahassee to work on a grant for the Fort Denaud Bridge when former County Administrator Lester Baird called him with the news about the terrorist attacks. Rock said he told him ,"I'm not worried," but Mr. Baird relied, "We're worried about you." He came back. "It is my opinion that we should exonerate the region and religion, and target extremism," Rock commented. There is small Muslim population in this area. Abe (not his real name) is a leader of the Muslim community in Fort Myers. Abe does not see America's current situation as a "holy war" or "jihad" pitting Christianity and Islam against each other. Born and raised in Britain, he is very familiar with the con ict between England and the Irish Republican Army (IRA). "These were also extremists," he points out, "but no one referred to the IRA as Christian extremists'." His point: the followers if Islam did not attack America on September 11. Twisted individuals with their own agenda are responsible for that and so many other unconscionable acts of terrorism throughout the world. "Extremists," he explained, "are not against Christians. They are against the human race." Islam condemns these kinds of actions by anyone who perpetrates them, he explained, adding that this type of extremism gives all Muslims a bad name. "People look at us all as if we are guilty," he said. He feels the media is partly to blame because it continually refers to the perpetrators as "Muslim" extremists, linking their deeds and philosophy to the religion of so many peaceful believers. "It's unfair," he commented, "to look at all Muslims as if they were guilty." Abe said his mother is from Africa, his father from India. They met in England where his father came for work. Abe has been in Florida for three years. He and his wife have two young children, ages three years and two weeks. Like all children, they are innocent of any sort of prejudice. He said he knows the time is coming when he will have to help them understand that some people will not like them for what they are. He cannot insulate them from prejudice, so he said he must teach them to be strong. He never had to deal with this type of prejudice at a young age and he never expected that it would be necessary to nd ways to overcome it. "People will talk. Call you names," he plans to warn his innocent children when the time is right. "It's best to ignore it. Time will tell." For himself, he said he tries to be polite to everyone. He wears traditional Islamic clothing and nds that Americans are curious. When they ask, he explains the differences in their outlook. "They usually wal k away with a clear mind," he said. Abe said he recently spoke with a man from Columbia who was doing some work for him. Finding that Abe was a Muslim, the man remarked, "That's that terrorist religion." Abe explained to him the realities of true Islam and that, truth be told, Christians and Muslims are really not that far apart. Abe was in college on 9/11. He said he was in class but started hearing rumors between classes. It was 3-4 p.m. in England. The rumors were crazy . the President was dead . things like that. When he and his friends got a chance they watched the news on TV. In England, he said there is a large Muslim population and they mostl y live close together. They were far away from America, and so felt removed at rst. "I didn't even know who Bin Laden was or that there was a Twin Towers," he said. Then the extremism began to creep higher and he knew it would affect his whole life. That same year, he went to Canada. On his arrival he was questioned for six-seven hours. After several hours it eventuall y became clear to him why. In the end, the Canadians were kind, explaining that the precautions were for safety reasons. But he knew that everything was different now.

by Jose ZaragozaIndependent Newspapers Three candidates have signed up to participate in the 2012 Sheriff race for Hendry County. While qualifying has not ended, the candidates are hoping to stir enough interest in their platforms early on to capture the allimportant voter’s attention come next year. Here are the three candidates that have led of cial documents at the Hendry County Supervisor of Elections Of ce. There is still plenty of time for others to make their bids for the of ce, with the formal qualifying period ending June 8, 2012. By announcing their bid early, all three are able to receive and spend contributions to their campaigns. All three have law enforcement experience, two having worked in New York.Ray Van HoutenRay Van Houten is a longtime resident of Hendry County, having moved from his hometown of Oceanside, Long Island, New Y ork, with several stops in Lake Worth, Big Cypress and Cape Coral along the way. He remembers his childhood well: “Oceanside was much like LaBelle, a safe, family-oriented town that thrived on the principle of everyone looking out for one another. It made me want to become the man I am today.” Van Houten began his career as an Army man stationed in Germany, and after his military career worked as a police of cer with the New York City Police Department, and attributes those experiences to the style of policing he undertakes today. Van Houten has also worked for the Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce, served a tour in Iraq and currently works at the Lee County Sheriff’s Of ce. As a narcotics of cer, Houten’s campaign is squarely focused on attacking the drug problem locally. He cites the importance of major highways and thoroughfares crisscrossing the county, and using them to keep illicit drugs off the streets. “It is time to join the ght against drugs and drug traf cking by hitting it head on,” he said. “We need to utilize every resource available. Where those resources are lacking, we create them.” He does not mince words. “I have seen the damage that drugs can wreak on families and have observed the decline in the standard of living. I have also seen the recent sheriff take of ce and ignore problems. I’m done observing.”Steven MaldonadoSteven Maldonado sharpened his policing skills in Riviera Beach – a high-crime section of Palm Beach County. “If you want to be a cop and learn everything, that’s de nitely the place to be,” said Maldonado. Originally from Puerto Rico, he spent time in New York, served a tour with the Army, and worked for the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce, before starting his own company, Criminal Justice Protections out of LaBelle. The security and training company teaches of cers rearm safety and offers general security services. Maldonado said he doesn’t disapprove of the way Sheriff Whidden has managed the sheriff’s of ce. “Change for the better can always be made, whether Whidden is doing a good job or not,” he said. The candidate said his main focus is on bee ng up the number of deputies patrolling the streets. “If I tell you I’m going to put more people on the street, hold me accountable, but I will make it happen. Things need to change to adjust to today’s economy without hurting the county’s pocket. We can’t ght with people behind a desk.” Maldonado has slowly adjusted to assuming a larger role in his community’s affairs. “After I left the sheriff’s of ce, people came to me and said, ‘Steve, you need to run. You’re a stand up guy and you don’t take crap from anybody when it comes to getting the job done.’”Sheriff Steve WhiddenFor his part, Sheriff Whidden said he is happy with the progress he has made, but would like another term to see even more done. “We’ve done a heck of a job,” said Sheriff Whidden. “We can’t please everybody obviously, but I think we’ve done a real good job.” According to the sheriff, there are plenty of reasons why voters should choose him again to run the law enforcement services in the county – including confronting and delivering a balanced budget for every year that he has been sheriff, and maintaining a high level of accessibility to the community. He said he has trimmed down the administration at the sheriff’s of ce, cutting from nine high-level positions down to four, and adding deputies in the lesser served areas of Montura and Pioneer. He lists as top achievements making more drug arrests in his rst two years of of ce than his predecessor made in four years. He is preparing for his competition simply: by making the same type of realizable promises he made during his rst campaign, and not overreaching simply to gain more votes, he said. “We have candidates who want to add hundreds of deputies, but they don’t realize the seriousness of the budget,” he said. “Yeah, I could add 20 deputies, but then taxes would increase like crazy. People have to be realistic.” He wonders aloud why candidates are running. “I get a lot of guys who want to be sheriff because they want to be sheriff. I’m not an egotistical kind of guy and I don’t believe in that, but a lot of guys, they just want the position.” He said he has enjoyed his time as sheriff, though there is much that still needs to be done. “It’s de nitely a challenge. There are some days I look back and wonder what I got into, but I got into the job to better the community. We’ve come so far it would be a travesty if I was not elected again.” 3 Caloosa Belle September 15, 2011 LaBelleLester Lamont Taylor, 26, was arrested Sept. 9 and charged with battery by strangling domestic violence.

First Impressionsby Matt KindermannQuestion: What’s the difference between a ve minute interview and a 40 minute interview? Answer: Your rst impression. Being invited to an interview means that your resume has passed the initial round of scrutiny and the employer wants to see you. Being offered an invitation to interview should tell you that the employer believes that you are quali ed for the job, even if you did not meet some of the advertized quali cations. Try to relax your nerves and feel con dent in your quali cations going into the interview because you have already successfully passed the rst stage in the hiring process! However, it is permissible to feel nervous and it is expected that some nervousness will show during the interview; but, too much nervousness could be a sign of low con dence and an interview killer. Be 15 minutes early for your interview and when you arrive let the secretary or other staff know who you are and why you’re there. If you’re unfamiliar with the area where the interview will be held, take a eld trip a day in advance to see where you’ll park and where to enter the building. It’s embarrassing to have your potential employers looking out the window watching you play frogger across the street in order to make your appointment. From the time your vehicle enters the same street that the employer is on, consider yourself on candid camera. On the eld trip you took to see where to park, you should also see how other people dress at the work site. Dressing appropriately for the interview means dressing one step above the work dress. If other employees regularly dress in khaki’s and a polo, then wear a collared shirt and tie or a nice blouse. If employees regularly wear ties and blouses, wear a pressed suit. Ensure that your accessories and scents are used in moderation. Do not bathe in cologne or bronzer, and leave your cell phone in the car. When you enter the interview room, remembering to smile, make sure to shake the hands of all the interviewers and call them by their rst name. Try to remember their names and use them when answering questions. Do not sit until being asked to and when you do, sit on the edge of the chair instead of slouching or leaning back. When answering questions, keep your answers to a limit of 45 seconds while ensuring to look in the eyes of all the interviews as you talk. Keep smiling. When the interview is over, shake everyone’s hand, thanking them by name. Typically, a candidate only receives one chance at a rst impression during the interview. However, if you are entering places of employment and asking for an application in person, then you are in essence conducting your rst interview. Some employers require an application to be lled out in person because it allows the opportunity to see how a candidate presents themselves outside of the interview process. This is a great indicator as to how the candidate conducts themselves outside of the workplace. If you are going into businesses asking for an application, you need to adhere to the interview rules and dress appropriately, which means putting on slacks and a nice shirt and leaving the cell phone in the car.

The rst apple said, “Look at all those people ghting, robbing, rioting -no one seems willing to get along with his fellow man. Someday we apples will be the only ones left. Then we’ll rule the world.” Replied the second apple, “Which of us -the reds or the greens?” Have you ever seen a prejudice act take place? How did that impact you? Were you sickened inside? Or, did you want to imitate a similar action as quickly as possible? Elizabeth Blackwell, the rst woman doctor in America, started her practice in New York in 1851. Not only was she unable to nd patients -no one would even rent her a room once she mentioned that she was a doctor. After weeks of trudging the streets, she nally rented rooms from a landlady who asked no questions about what Elizabeth planned to do with them. Quaker women, who had always been receptive to the goal of equal rights, became Elizabeth’s rst patients. But no hospital would allow her on its staff. Finally, with nancial help from her Quaker friends, Elizabeth opened her own clinic in one of New York’s worst slums. The clinic opened in March, 1853. Elizabeth hung a sign out announcing that all patients would be treated free. Yet, for the rst few weeks, no one showed up. Then one day a woman in such agony that she didn’t care who treated her, staggered up the steps and collapsed in Elizabeth’s arms. When the woman was treated and recovered, she told all her friends about the wonderful woman doctor in downtown New York. The dispensary was soon doing well. It eventually expanded, moved, and is now a branch of the New York In rmary on East Fifteenth Street. Prejudice can be exhibited towards another because of their skin color, their heritage, their home of origin or even their intellectual abilities. For centuries people believed that Aristotle was right when he said that the heavier an object, the faster it would fall to earth. Aristotle was regarded as the greatest thinker of all time, and surely he would not be wrong. Anyone, of course, could have taken two objects, one heavy and one light, and dropped them from a great height to see whether or not the heavier object landed rst. Apparently, however, no one did. That is, until nearly 2,000 years after Aristotle’s death. In 1589 Galileo summoned learned professors to the base of the Leaning Tower o f Pisa. Then he went to the top and pushed of f a ten-pound and a one-pound weight. Both landed at the same instant. The power of belief was so strong, however, that the professors denied their eyesight. They continued to say Aristotle was right. Viewing another and assessing their social strata can be prejudicial if we are honest with ourselves. While we must all be cautious and guarded against being gullible, there is a place for giving people the bene t of a doubt. That was true for Dodie Gadient. Dodie Gadient, a schoolteacher for 13 years, decided to travel across America and see the sights she had taught about. Traveling alone in a truck with camper in tow, she launched out. One afternoon rounding a curve on I-5 near Sacramento in rush-hour traf c, a water pump blew on her truck. She was tired, exasperated, scared and alone. In spite o f the traf c jam she caused, no one seemed interested in helping. Leaning up against the trailer, she prayed, ‘Please God, send me an angel . preferabl y one with mechanical experience.’ Within four minutes, a huge Harley drove up, ridden by an enormous man sporting long, black hair, a beard and tattooed arms.

Within another few minutes, he agged down a larger truck, attached a tow chain to the frame of the disabled Chevy, and whisked the whole 56-foot rig off the freeway onto a side street, where he calmly continued to work on the water pump. The intimidated schoolteacher was too dumbfounded to talk. Especially when she read the paralyzing words on the back of his leather jacket: Hell's Angels -California'. As he nished the task, she nally got up the courage to say, Thanks so much,' and carry on a brief conversation. Noticing her surprise at the whole ordeal, he looked her straight in the eye and mumbled, Don't judge a book by its cover. You may not know who you're talking to.' With that, he smiled, closed the hood of the truck, and straddled his Harley. With a wave, he was gone as fast as he had appeared. Given half a chance, people often crawl out of the boxes into which we've relegated them. The Bible warns its readers about being prejudice. Leviticus 19:15 says, Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. Likewise, Deuteronomy 10:17-19 expresses this so well: "The Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the wido w and loves the alien, giving him good and clothing. And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt." All are in constant need of God's mercy. The epistle of James shows us on what terms we may have it: "judgment without mercy will not be shown to anyone who has not been merciful." May God help all of us to be the people we are called to be before God. Clearly, that includes dismissing anything that smacks o f prejudice.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church, located 200 yards behind A Country Christian Men to meetThe September meeting of the LaBelle Gathering of Christian Men will be held at Life Ministries, located at 725 West Hickpoochee Ave. LaBelle on Monday, September 19, at 7 p.m. Pastor Jorge Rodriguez will bring our message and dinner will be provided.

Pictured from left: Senior Warden Jack Neitzke, Tiz Wade LEM, Lavonne Ledbetter LEM, and Father Alan Kelmereit. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At the August 23 meeting of the Hendry County commissioners, Associate Planner Sarah Catala presented an update on the Capital Improvement Schedule. The Capital Improvement Schedule lists proposed county public works projects, based on standards of service forecast for the next ve years. The schedule now allows capital projects to be listed without funding sources. Projects may now be listed as either funded or unfunded and given a level of priority. Ms. Catala told the board that this will increase Hendry County's ability to gain more points on certain grant applications. The county's top projects include Airglades Industrial Park and LaBelle Airport improvements, SR 80/US 27 interchange, resurfacing parts of US 27, completion of SR 80 four-laning, adding lanes to SR 29, easement acquisition, drainage and storm w ater management projects throughout the county, construction of recreational facilities at the Hendry-LaBelle Sports Complex, lighting as well as other improvements at other parks around the county. Commissioner Tris Chapman said the commissioners have learned a lesson about approving shovel-ready projects when they don't know when the funding is coming. Recently a sidewalk plan that was ready but unnecessary at this time was constructed in Felda because funding came in unexpectedly. The commissioner underscored the need for shovel ready projects to be in queue, but stressed communication. He wants a bigger variety of shovel ready projects available when funding arises.Fire departmentLaBelle Fire Chief Ray Pittman reported that Felda Fire Department currently has four volunteer re ghters in Felda with two more coming on one from Forestry and one from Immokalee Fire Department. Both have already gone through training. LaBelle re ghters have been answering 80-90 calls per month, but are down to about 45-50 at this time. County could gain points on grant applications

Phlebotomist Roxy O’Rourke, left, took special care with blood donor Jessica Vasquez at the Community Blood Drive Sept. 8. Jessica is a 2001 graduate of LaBelle High School and has been donating blood ever since she was a student. She understands the importance of giving blood since her two-yearold daughter was born prematurely and needed a blood transfusion as a tiny baby. The next community drive is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 10. by Pudge LehmanTo make your kitchen appliances look like new use car polish... If your toddler insists on locking himself in his room stuff a small piece of aluminum foil in the hole that the bolt goes into. Do this when they are not around or they will promptly remove it. To remove sticky labels or old contact paper try to pull up a corner and aim your hair dryer, on the heat setting, and lift it up. Before broiling put a little water in the bottom of the broiling pan to reduce popping and make clean up easier. If you are short, and even if you’re not, put the mixing bowl in the sink, on a damp dishcloth. This level is more back friendly and spills and spatters are quick to clean up.

Although there was a somewhat disappointing turnout for the rst event last year, some 3,000 motorcycles were attracted to the event. However, organizers are pleased that it was well handled and was marred by no problems. The Legion Riders are seeking the city’s permission to sell beer again this year. Event coordinator Ray Levanthal would like to move beer sales and consumption into the park itself, w ithout of a fenced area like last year. Mr. Levanthal said he feels they can contain beer consumption to the park area. Beer sales require approval by the city commission. If the commission will not allow beer sales this year, he said the Riders are committed to putting the event on anyway, he noted. He said the event brings money into LaBelle for the Legion’s community projects. Mr. Levanthal was asked to return to the October meeting for the board’s decision.Fire DepartmentFire Chief Ray Pittman reported there were 550 calls for service in August. He said the department has a full roster, but is still looking for unpaid members. He added that LFD received a generator from the Department of Forestry and also a $10,000 grant for radios and gear. He said the re department is considering how to manage calls with the sheriff’s of ce moving all dispatch to a central location and going to an 800 megahertz system. Chief Pittman said the re department could change with the rest of the county or stay on its existing equipment with an upgrade. HCSO Lt. Minnie Bryant said the sheriff’s of ce is still working on its radio issue. “It’s been a long time coming,” she said, adding they have checked it out and the 800 megahertz system is “awesome.” The cost $55,000-$60,000 to city. “It’s a huge of cer safety issue,” she said.In other businessApplied Technology Management’s Tim Taylor reported that they have applied for a water conservation grant on behalf of the city. Last year the city got new meters last year through a similar grant. The board also approved a $500 donation to the Hendry County 4-H Horticulture Judging Team going to nationals in San Diego. The donation is contingent on if money can be found in budget. Special exceptions for temporary buildings at both the Education Center of Southwest Florida, Inc., and Caloosa Baptist Church were extended for two more years Discussion on the Landscape ordinance was continued till the city’s October 13 meeting. Changes are being considered to codes governing the removal of large old oak trees.

Typically, the best treatment for otherwise healthy adults with acute bronchitis, colds and most types of sore throats is to simply help alleviate symptoms, according to new principles. All too often antibiotics are prescribed for adults with upper respiratory infections caused by viruses, which do not respond to antibiotics meant to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics are appropriate to ght bacterial infections, however, taking antibiotics for viral infections, such as a cold, most sore throats, acute bronchitis and many sinus or ear infections WILL NOT: Will not cure the infection Will not keep other people from getting sick Will not help anyone feel better The excessive use of antibiotics among outpatients has contributed to the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in many communities. Increasing antibiotic resistance among common pathogens is leaving fewer effective drugs available to treat infectious diseases. When resistance develops in rst-line drugs, the remaining alternative drugs may be less effective, more expensive and more dif cult to administer. Dangers of Antibiotic Resistance Colds and many other upper respiratory infections, as well as some ear infections, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can't treat (like colds or other viral infections) they can stop working effectively against bacteria when you or your child really needs them. Antibiotic resistance is when antibiotics can no longer cure bacterial infections. W idespread overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics is fueling an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria. So there may come a time when you or your child really needs an antibiotic for a bacterial infection, and it may not work. Did you know? Antibiotic resistance is one of the w orld's most pressing public health threats. Antibiotics are the most important tool we have to combat life-threatening bacterial diseases. Increasing antibiotic resistance is compromising the effectiveness of antibiotics. Patients, healthcare providers, health departments, hospital administrators and policy makers must work together to employ effective strategies for improving appropriate antibiotic use which will ultimately saving lives. What can you do to help? Do not demand antibiotics when a doctor says they are not needed. Do not take an antibiotic for a viral infection like a cold or most sore throats. Do not take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. The antibiotic may not be appropriate for your or your child's illness. Taking the wrong medicine may delay correct treatment and allow bacteria to multiply. If your healthcare provider prescribes an antibiotic for you or your child: Do not skip doses. Do not save any of the antibiotics for the next time you or your child gets sick. Remember, just because your healthcare provider doesn't give you an antibiotic doesn't mean you aren't sick. Talk with them about the best treatment for your or your child's illness. When you or your child has an upper respiratory infection, here are some things that your healthcare provider may suggest: Over-the-counter treatment options that may help you or your child feel better Increase uid intake, (drink lots of water) Get plenty of rest Use a cool-mist vaporizer or saline nasal spray to relieve congestion Soothe a throat with ice chips, sore throat spray, or lozenges (do not give lozenges to young children).

Save yourself a hassle. Make sure you place your horticultural waste properly at roadside for disposal. When code enforcement sees an illegal horticultural waste pile, they rst talk to the residents to get compliance. However, a $140 citation can be written for noncompliance. The case goes to county court and the resident could end up with a $500 ne. Of course, the resident may contest the case. The rst approach is public outreach. Here's how to do it: 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: 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.

Two of our local 4H Clubs achieved a spot in a National Competition from winning big in the State Competition. In April, Hendry County’s 4H Meats Judging Team placed second in the State Competition and will be going on to represent the State of Florida in the Western National Round-up 4H/FFA Meats Judging Competition taking place in January 7-10, 2012, in Denver, Colorado. This team is made up of four hardworking and enthusiastic young people: Adam Bar eld, Andrew McAvoy, Jared Plair and Katelyn Steelman. The team put in a lot of study and hard w ork over several months to prepare for the contest. The contest will consist of thirty Retail Identi cation cuts from a list of 132 (beef, pork, and lamb), six judging classes of cuts and/or carcasses (beef and pork), as well as three sets of reasons/question on judging classes. In July, Hendry County’s 4H Horticultural Identi cation and Judging Team won the First Place award in the State of Florida 4H Congress July 2011 and will be going on to represent the State of Florida and compete in the National Junior Horticultural Identication and Judging Contest sponsored by the National Junior Horticultural Association taking place in October 7-10, 2011 in San Diego, California. This team is made up of four young men consisting of Wolfgang Lynn, Andrew McAv oy, Harry Plamondon, and Stephen Woosley. The team worked several months in preparation for the competition for their win at states. One of the team members, Harry Plamondon, earned the First Place Overall A ward. The state contest tested knowledge of 200 plants that can be found in Florida div ided 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. In San Diego, they will be tested on 180 plants that can be found in all 50 states. To see the list of these plants visit the Web site at http://www.njha.org/projects_hortid.html. Cooperative Extension Service Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences HENDRY COUNTY The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences is an Equal Employment Opportunity Af rmative Action Employer authorized to provide research, educational, information, and other services only to individuals and institutions that function without regard to race, color, sex, age, handicap or national origin. It will take approximately $12,000 to send both teams and an adult coach to attend the respective National Competitions. This w ill pay for entrance fees, hotel, air fare, meals and conference activities. So far, we have collected about $4,000 in donations and money budgeted from the county 4-H program as well as the state 4-H program. There isn’t much time to organize fund raisers but we intend to earn as much as we can through various fund raisers. Since the teams will be representing the whole State of Florida we are also soliciting sponsorships from interested individuals and organizations in Florida. If you are willing to help sponsor these young adults, please send a check payable to Hendry County 4-H to the above address. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. As you may know 4-H is one of the nation’s largest youth development organizations. The 4-H movement includes six million 4-H youth in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities across America. Did you know that youth engaged with 4-H are: nearly two times more likely to get better grades in school; nearly two times more likely to plan to go to college; 41 percent less likely to engage in risky behaviors; and 25 percent more likely to positively contribute to their families and communities. 4-H science based programs such as the horticulture competition provide added value to both schools and communities and increase the number of students pursuing science, engineering, technology and applied math elds in their academic studies and careers. Kids like these represent the future of agriculture. Florida Senator Bill Nelson, former Senator Bob Graham, as well as Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, Katherine Harris and Bill Grant were all 4-Hers. Check out Hendry County 4-H, and you will nd young people taking the lead in addressing today’s challenges. 4-H is where young people explore, learn and discover in a safe environment. In 4-H, youth nd their true passions, gain con dence and give bac k to their community. They are indeed the future of our country. I hope you will be able to help the kids and thank you for your consideration of this matter.

Carroll is co-owner of Hilliard Brothers of Florida, a family-owned and operated agribusiness. She is part of the third generation of family members to manage the company’s diverse agriculture, real estate and dev elopment operations.

Carroll holds a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Business A dministration (MBA) degree from Auburn University. “I am honored to be the Hendry-Glades United Way Campaign Chair. Considering the huge need in our community, it’s a big job,” said Carroll. “I am asking for your help because it is extremely important for our community that we reach 100 percent of our goal. “It is a higher goal than for last year’s campaign, but the needs in Hendry and Glades County are great, and we are optimistic about meeting the goal. Every gift is important no matter what size, because added together they can make a real impact,” Carroll added. Cliff Smith, President of the United Way commented, “We are very pleased that Mary Beth is the 2011-2012 Campaign Chair for Hendry and Glades Counties. Her enthusiasm and commitment to the community make her a role model for all of us. Please join her in the campaign and make a real difference for this community.

A local network of 30 agencies and initiatives will receive funds from the 2011-2012 United Way of Hendry and Glades fundraising campaign. These agencies include: Goodwill, The Salvation Army, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Child Care of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families, United Way 2-11 and many others. This network serves a diverse range of needs: nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, meeting critical needs such as helping the elderly and disabled live independently and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods. The network of United Way agencies helped over 21,000 people in Hendry and Glades Counties last year. In addition to housing the United Way 211 helpline program, many agency programs and services can be found at the LaBelle United Way House on Fort Thompson Ave. A new United Way House has also opened in Clewiston on Sugarland Highway to bring additional services to the area. A third United Way House is being planned for Moore Haven. All money raised through the United Wa y of Hendry and Glades Counties campaign remains in the Hendry and Glades area, aiding members of the community who reall y need the help. None of the money is used for overhead costs, and 100 percent of the donations are used to support programs in the community. In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives. For more information please call The United way at (800) 887-9234, or visit www. unitedwaylee.org. United Way of Hendry and Glades kicks of local campaign TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Department of Health (DOH) today released the 2009 statewide Florida Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data and 2010 county-speci c data reports. These important health statistics assist DOH and local communities in monitoring health and behavior trends, responding to emerging issues and making health-related policy and intervention decisions. “The Florida Behavioral Risk Factor Surv eillance System is an extremely important collection of data because it gives us a glimpse into the personal health behaviors of Floridians,” said Dr. Julia Gill, director of DOH’s Division of Disease Control. “From the results of this statewide survey, we can measure where progress has been made and where work is still needed, allowing us to better focus our resources.” The BRFSS report contains state and county-speci c information on a variety of issues related to health status, health care access, lifestyle, chronic illnesses and disease prevention and control practices. The data is broken down by socio-demographic characteristics to aid in the identi cation of populations at highest risk for illness, disability and death. Overall, the statewide data shows that about 83 percent of Florida adults consider their health good or excellent, but only 24 percent of adults are consuming the recommended ve or more servings of fruits and v egetable per day. Additional trends and ndings include: In the past 14 years, the prevalence of reported high cholesterol among adult Floridians has increased 28.1 percent. In the past decade, the prevalence of diabetes among adults in Florida has increased 57.4 percent. College graduates signi cantly engaged in more leisure time physical activities than other education groups, with the prevalence of Floridians who engage in no leisure time physical activity decreasing from 27.1 percent in 1996 to 24.7 percent in 2009. The prevalence of high blood pressure has risen 37.8 percent in the past 14 years. The prevalence of Floridians who currently smoke has declined from 1997 (23.6 percent) to 2009 (17.1 percent). The data also show that over 26 percent Florida adults are obese (de ned as having a body mass index of 30 or more) and nearly 37 percent are overweight (de ned as having a body mass index between 25 and 29.9). These indicators match up with nearly 25 percent of people who have not participated in any leisure time physical activity, over 40 percent who have been told they havehigh cholesterol and nearly 11 percent with diagnosed diabetes. “This signi cant increase in obesity rates, combined with the rise in other weightrelated trends such as high cholesterol and diabetes, is a clear indicator that Floridians should prioritize healthy eating and exercise,” said State Surgeon General Dr. Frank Farmer. The BRFSS is a state-based system of health surveys administered by telephone. Conducted since 1986, DOH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) use this data to shape state and local priority health issues, plan and evaluate prevention and control programs, educate the community and policy makers about disease prevention, support community policies that promote health, and prevent disease. More than 35,000 interviews were completed with adults in households for the data to be representative of the overall state or county populations. The 2009 CDC summary reports, the 2010 county reports and the new “Florida Behavioral Risk Factors: Results from the 2000 to 2009 Florida Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System” are available online at http://www.doh.state. .us/Disease_ctrl/epi/ brfss/reports.htm.
