Thursday, September 29, 2011 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 39 At approximately 4:45 a.m. on September 20, deputies were dispatched to the Handy Food Store, located at 200 Old CR 78, after receiving a call of suspicious persons. The caller reported seeing three subjects wearing dark clothing coming from behind the Handy Store. When deputies rst arrived they found that the glass door to the store had been broken and later found a pack of cold beer lying scattered along C.R. 78. Later deputies responded to a home invasion at 692 Palm Avenue in LaBelle. The rst deputy on scene, Deputy Clifton Green, observed one of the suspects running through the backyard and immediately gave chase, along with Sheriff Steve Whidden. Sheriff Whidden apprehended the suspect, who was later identi ed as 17-year-old Francisco Javier Bustamante. As backup units began to arrive on scene deputies set up a perimeter and with the assistance of road deputies, investigators and Sheriff Whidden, all three suspects were located and arrested. The 67-year-old victim was found lying on the oor by the front door of her residence. Suffering from a laceration to the forehead and a stab wound to the forearm, she was later transported for additional medical treatment. A second victim, who also resides at the same residence, was able to run for help requesting assistance from a neighbor. The victims reported to deputies that th e suspects took a 46" television and a cell phon e during the robbery. Investigators were able to recover and return the television to the victims. Investigators were able to determine that th e same three individuals were responsible for both the burglary at the Handy Food Store as well as Arrests made in home invasion robbery newszap.comFree SpeechFree AdsSee Page 4 for information about how to contact the newspaper Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantCars and Vets, American classicsThe South Central Florida Car Club made a donation to the new Veterans Park recently.

The vote came at the city's September 21 public meeting. With the prospect of having to raise water and sewer rates soon, the board decided it was best to hold the line on the budget. The $68,005 difference between what the proposed 3.3810 millage rate and the 3.0 millage the board nally approved will be achieved through holding off on purchasing new software and cutting various line items City holds line on taxesSee City — Page 2 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It was highly contentious Tuesday night, but Hendry County Commissioners have set the nal millage and budget for 2011-12 after hearing pleas from many residents about "who gets what." Perhaps the argument that nally swung the commissioners to adopt the 7.2894 millage rate (up from the steady 6.5 of the past ve years), was the reality that anything less would likel y result in the total loss of funding for some ver y important services. These included 100 percent of the county's funding for Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Barron Library, Empowerment Alliance, HRMC health fair and high school Project Graduations as well as 50 percent of its funding for the health department, mental health, Hope Services and Area Housing. Commissioners learned that slashing funding for Barron Library would ultimately mean that it would also lose much of its state funding. Commissioners Perry, Taylor and Harris all voted yes for the 7.2894 millage rate. Commissioners Turner and Chapman voted against it. The total 2011-12 budget was set at $67,860,010. Millage goes up after hot debateSee Invasion — Page 5 See Debate — Page 2

On a xed income, she commented that an increase would probably affect her more than the other commissioners, but said she felt the board should confront the need to increase the city’s income “sooner rather than later.” The 2011-12 millage of 3.0 vote passed, 3-1. The vote on the nal budget of $23,415,280 followed and was passed 4-0. Commissioner Greg Bone was not in attendance. After the votes, Commissioner Daniel Akin directed the board’s attention to medical insurance issues and the loss of the Alico headquarters building, which will come off the city’s tax role next year. Hendry County Board of County Commissioners recently purchased the building when Alico moved its headquarters to Fort Myers. The county is moving administrative of ces to that site. City From Page 1 Questions about possible Sunshine Law v iolations have come about from a Sept. 19 meeting held by the West Hendry County Council, a local community group. Three commissioners were present at that meeting: Tris Chapman, who was the speaker for the night, Al Perry and Karson Turner. Darrell Harris and Janet Taylor said they did not receive any information about the upcoming meeting. County Attorney Mark Lapp commented that, since this meeting was initiated by a civic group and not the county, it did not have to meet the same noti cation requirements as a county meeting. He added that these meetings cannot take place in secret and must be open to the public even though they may be mainly for the civic group. The meeting was apparently noticed in a local newspaper and Web site. Judging from the number of phone calls she received after the meeting, Commissioner Janet Taylor still had concerns that the public’s perception was soured. The meeting was held at LaBelle City Hall, moved there after it was determined it would be too large for coordinator Mel Karau’s home, as originally planned. Mr. Karau is the president of the West Hendry County Council. Commissioner Tris Chapman said the meeting was mainly held to address the council’s concerns about the possibility of a higher millage rate. He defended the meeting, saying the public needs to have access to the commissioners for an explanation of their property taxes, adding that in these dif cult economic times, the county should keep the tax rate low. Commissioner Chapman was in favor of keeping the roll back rate, which brings in the same amount of taxes as the previous year. He said Mr. Karau contacted him about the meeting. At the time, it was his understanding that he would be the only commissioner there and was surprised to see Commissioners Turner and Perry in attendance as well. Property Appraiser Phill Pelletier, Sheriff Steve Whidden, Superintendent of Schools Rick Murphy and LaBelle Mayor Paul Puletti, along with EDC Director Gregg Gillman were also in attendance. Each commissioner made a statement, then took questions and answers. Commissioner Chapman said his major concern was to correct misinformation that had been circulated about the millage rate. He said he explained the commissioners’ thinking on purchasing the Alico building. The county has been leasing of ce space at the Courthouse Square, east of the jail, and the lease is up at the end of the month. He said the county has paid $1.5 million in rent there over the past several years. In just sixto-eight months, he said the county could purchase the Alico building. He noted that the Alico property has been appraised at $1.2-$1.3 million and the county purchased it for $595,000 some 47 percent of its market value. He said Alico also agreed to donate $25,000 per year to the Hendry County Economic Development Council for ve years. Phillip Pelletier explained how Save Our Homes (SOH) works. He said SOH holds property tax increases to a maximum o f three percent max. Although the tax millage remained the same over the past ve years, assessments have crashed. Homeowners should see some relief soon, he said, because now appraisals are nally beginning to match assessments. Debate From Page 1

Recommendations and Referencesby Matt KindermannMost job applications, both electronic and paper, have blank spaces to list references Many people skip this application step either because applications can be submitted without them or because they simply don’t plan on listing any references. References are a valuable addition to any application or resume because it immediately shows that one or more people can, and are willing to, attest to your character. By simply listing one or more references, an applicant can show that they were prepared when lling out an application, are organized and are familiar with other people who can speak of some employable quality. There are two types of references; personal and professional. Personal references are considered the least acceptable form of reference because a personal reference denotes an acquaintance that knows the applicant personally but cannot, or should not attest, to skill ability or work ethic. If all you have are personal references, de nitely use them on applications but don’t misrepresent the reference as a professional one because this will come back to haunt you later in the hiring process. To acquire a personal reference, ask people that you socialize with but who are not related to you, such as clergy, coaches, teachers, or people from social groups. Professional references are those people who you have worked with or those you have worked for such as vendors, coworkers, supervisors and customers. These people are the most sought after by future employers because they can attest to your work abilities, skills and ethics. You should have most, if not all, your references be listed as professional. To acquire professional references, ask your old co-workers and supervisors if they would be willing to speak to a potential future employer on a speci c aspect of your abilities. For instance, if you are a CNA, ask a charge nurse if they would be willing to speak on behalf of your bedside manners. If you volunteer as a Secretary or Treasurer for a social group like the Boy Scouts or Kiwanis, ask the Scout Master or President if they would be willing to attest to your organizational abilities. When listing the professional reference, state what ability that reference can conrm, if you have space. To properly document a reference, you’ll need at least their rst and last name, occupational title and place of work, a phone number and e-mail address. In addition to listing references, you may also consider submitting a letter of recommendation from the references. Letters of recommendation are simple and you don’t necessarily need a long letter lled with fancy words. Simply having any type of recommendation letter speaks volumes of your organizational and professional character. Many times, you can write your own letter and have the reference sign it as if it was from them. This is usually easier than asking a reference to write you a letter themselves and you’ll be sure to have it include the speci cs as to what you would like the reference to convey to a potential employer. Recommendation letters should C a r e e r C o r n e r Career Corner Matthew Kindermann The Giving KindI would like to give a special heart felt thank you to Mr. Doyle and Mr. Karson Turner. I recently stretched the limit by asking them to give a helping hand with some electrical work at Doc Keen’s Clewiston Animal Clinic/Critter Care. The guys at Quality Electric jumped in there and gave tirelessly so the clinic could open its door to serve the community. Carson and Doyle, thank you so much for your much needed help! It was a very gracious deed. Suzanne and the gang have their hearts and efforts dedicated to the “critters” as Doc would refer to them. I have spent a little time there trying to do my part to see a dream come true. They have made me a believer ... They Care! Also, a special note of respect and appreciation has to go out to Mrs. Kathy Irey, Mrs. Dana Westbury, Mrs. Gloria McGee and Mr. Larry Kelly. Their giving unconditional time is truly what makes the whole thing work! Stop by, say hello to Suzanne, Mrs. Keen and the crew, I think you will feel something special! The whole idea came about as a tribute to Doc Keen and what he gave to this community and, if you look carefully, you will see that Doc is keeping a watchful eye on things! Sincerely, John H. WardThank You for Your SupportI would like to thank all of the individuals, businesses and organizations that have donated school supplies to the students at LaBelle Elementary School. Due to the current economic situation in Hendry County, many of our parents cannot afford to purchase school supplies for their children. Your donations have made it possible for students to have the supplies they need to be ready and prepared for their teachers’ instruction. I appreciate the support you have given to LaBelle Elementary School. It is wonderful to see the community come together to help our children receive the education the y need to be successful. John R. Bake r Principal LaBelle Elementary School Thank You Hollywood lm makers’ next pandemic is hitting the theaters. The movie is called “Contagion.” Unfortunately, none of us can schedule the next real-life global outbreak. The glitz and glamour of actors and celebrities will be pretending to experience fear, however a real-life pandemic will involve regular hard-working people just like you and me. While you may not be spending your free time preparing for the next pandemic, scientists and public health experts will tell you that it is not a matter of “if” one will strike, but “when.” The new movie Contagion tracks the growth of a deadly virus that quickly erupts into a worldwide pandemic. The idea is frightening enough to make anyone germ-a-phobic, but it is important to remember that the same basic steps people take daily to protect themselves from colds and us could be life-saving during such an event. These include:  Wash hands frequently and thoroughly The Hendry and Glades County Health Departments encourages everyone to wash their hands before and after handling food, after using the bathroom, after changing a diaper, after handling garbage, after coming in contact with pets, and also wash your hands before and after coming in contact with sick or injured people (including your own children). Proper hand washing includes using soap and water and scrubbing your hands for 10-20 seconds.  Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze – As children, many of us were taught to cover our mouth with our hand when we cough or sneeze. New guidance recommends coughing or sneezing into your elbow to minimize the passing germs through your hands.  Stay home from school or work when you are sick – When people go to work or school sick, they can make other people sick. With today’s dif cult economy, man y employees are hesitant to take time off for any reason, desperate to show their dedication to their job to avoid losing it. Employers need to prioritize productivity and remind their employees to stay home when they are sick to protect the rest of their workforce. Florida may face many threats; some may have the potential for large-scale health implications which can include disease outbreaks, natural disasters and even terrorist attacks. There will be another pandemic some day. We witnessed a small glimpse o f this with H1N1 in 2009, but we don’t kno w when the next one is coming, so we must stay prepared and do what we can to keep ourselves and our families healthy.

Invasion From Page 1 Patty BrantCaloosa Belle In a year when belt tightening is hitting everyone from government down to individuals, questions are being raised by some residents about Port LaBelle Community Development District’s (CDD) new budget for 2011-12. The District is asking that its 2010-11 millage rate of 3.4 mills be increased to 4.05. The rollback rate, the amount necessary to bring in the same amount of taxes as this year, is 3.7369. The CDD has cut $101,121 in expenses, General Manager Lester Baird notes, but even so PLB must increase its revenue. As is the case with both the county and the City of LaBelle, Port LaBelle has lost ad valorem income. Although there is no de nite population count for Port LaBelle, the total number of utility accounts approximately 1,500. Mr. Baird said some $42,000 in CDD reserve funding was placed in the general account last year money that is no longer available. “It’s a tight budget,” Mr. Baird said, adding that the board didn’t want to increase the millage but felt there was no choice. The budget does re ect a slight increase in salaries since employees are now required to pay into their dependents’ health insurance. In four years, he said, employees will be required to pay half of their dependents’ health insurance costs. Port LaBelle CDD has four employees, including Mr. Baird. Barron Water Control has six and their salaries are shared by both entities through an interlocal agreement. Mr. Baird continued to say that the district has some big capital needs and foresees a bigger budgetary problem next year when aging equipment and road improvement will have to be addressed. “We can barely scrape by with mowing and mosquito control now,” he added. Port LaBelle Community Development District meets October 3 at 5:30 p.m., 3293 Dellwood Terrace, to nalize its 2011-12 budget and millage. The proposed budget includes no capital items except one culvert that must be replaced, and the cost of that project is shared with Barron Water Control District. Barron Water Control Water District is a separate taxing district. Mr. Baird explained that Barron Water Control District has ve different taxing rates: urban, the most intensely populated areas requiring the most maintenance, pa y $51.27 per acre, prorated for smaller lots; agriculture, which requires drainage onl y has the lowest rate of $4.02 per acre; irrigated lands, $21.97 per acre; no drainage, which is half the urban rate; and urban grove, $25.64 per acre.

TAMPA, Florida September 22, 2011 Hungry Howie’s is taking action to help save lives by partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one of the leading breast cancer organizations in the world. NBCF’s mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer through education and by prov iding mammograms to those in need. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Hungry Howie’s goal is to raise over $230,000 for NBCF in 2011 with over $160,000 having been raised in 2010. Hungry Howie’s will “go pink” a third y ear in a row with pizzas being served in pink boxes and decorated with the breast cancer awareness ribbon. For every large pizza purchased at Florida and Alabama locations in October, Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to NBCF. Up to an additional $1 will also be donated to NBCF when customers purchase pink ribbon magnets at Hungry Howie’s locations and share their stories of hope and inspiration about their experience with breast cancer on Hungry Howie’s Facebook page. Founder/CEO of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Janelle Hail, who is a 30year breast cancer survivor, says, “The rst time I hugged a woman who was provided a mammogram through NBCF’s help was like holding love in my arms. Today, I live my life with hope for my future and want to share those experiences.” Hungry Howie’s Love, Hope & Pizza campaign will begin October 1 and take place throughout the entire month. Hungry Howie’s Founder Jim Hearn expresses, “As a community, we can help to heal the lives of patients and their loved ones. Together, we can face the challenge of breast cancer and make a difference.” Founded in 1973, Hungry Howie’s is one of the nation’s largest pizza franchises and originator of the Flavored Crust Pizza. Hungry Howie’s was ranked in the top 100 of Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 in 2009. Recognized as one of the leading breast cancer organizations in the world, NBCF’s mission is to increase awareness about breast cancer signs and symptoms through education, early detection and by providing mammograms to those in need. NBCF provides Help for Today...Hope For Tomorrow. Hungry Howie’s goes pink 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 w ith 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: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.

When Save Our Homes was enacted back in the ‘90s, it was only concerned with protecting homesteaders from a rising market and no provisions were made for a declining market. This issue is being addressed in the November 2012 General Election with Ballot #4. The above graph shows the assessed value of a homestead property granted in 2002. While the market value remains above the assessed value, the assessed value will only increase by the CPI or three percent whichever is less (this year there is a 1.5 percent increase). There are 1,222 properties like this in Hendry County for the 2011 tax year, of them 722 will see an increase to their taxable value.

The Imagination Station has a total of 40 slots for VPK students and the original class has 20 children enrolled. This second class is lling up fast. With six teachers, Imagination Station can accommodate babies all the way to after school students up to about 12. This is Vicki and Raul Grimaldo's rst experience with having a day care, although V icki taught school for 22 years. She taught preschool at the old Christian School for seven-eight years and was a paraprofessional at Country Oaks in ESE. The couple also had foster care children for seven-eight years and don't forget years of Pop Warner, baseball and soccer with their own kids. Their decision to open their day care w as a "dream come true" with the hope of meeting the community's needs. Kids at Imagination Station enjoy educational fun, especially Circle Time with music and dance nonstop action. They prepare for Pre-K by learning shapes, numbers, letters and blending all the basics. There are eight learning centers for the kids: library, kitchen, blocks, writing, table toys, math and science, art, computers and soon cooking and they each take their turn at them. Those who need to, pick up English along with social skills and the educational tools they need to be a success in school in a few years. The state-funded VPK program is for all four-year-olds going into kindergarten next year and is free to all. While Vicki and the other teachers care for the little ones, Raul keeps everything in tip-top shape. Imagination Station parents supply lunch for their children.

Pictured from left: Joel Bayon, Lee Rutter, Mark Shopp (Pitt’s Pen), Javier Centeno. by Coach Jordan OdafferIn their district opener against the Avon Park Red Devils the Cowboys started out slow, but settled in partway through the rst quarter. The Red Devils took the opening kick back inside Cowboy territory and scored on their rst play from scrimmage as Tyler Johnson raced for a 45-yard touchdown down the left sideline. On the following kickoff the Cowboys still looked rusty as they struggled to eld the kick and had to start pinned deep in their own end. After a three and out the Cowboys punted to the Red Devils, who used their running game to score another easy touchdown in 6 plays, capped off by Charles Louis' rst touchdown of the night. After another series where the offense struggled, it looked as though the Cowboys w ere going to be in for a long night until their defense woke up. The Cowboys stopped the Red Devils and got the ball back for the offense, who found the end zone early in the second quarter when Senior Noel Gutierrez connected with Sophomore Jonathan Rodriguez for a 32-yard touchdown pass. David A ntunez converted the point after to cut the de cit to 14-7. The teams exchanged possessions until late in the rst half when the Cowboys aided the Devils with 35 penalty yards on a drive that led to the Devils taking a 21-7 lead on the strength of Louis' running ability. After halftime the Cowboys came out and passed the ball well at times, but struggled to nd a running game to help add consistency. In the second half the defense, which w as led by Luis Hernandez, Delindio Watson, Anthony Likens, Devante Ray and Lenel J ones, held the Red Devils scoreless. With the defense playing tough, the offense stepped up and scored a touchdown early in the fourth quarter when Gutierrez connected with senior Lenel Jones on a 24y ard touchdown pass, which was set up by Junior Ellis Johnson's 34-yard part return. Antunez's extra point trimmed the de cit to 21-14 and his onside kick following the extra point gave the Cowboys the ball back. On the following drive Sophomore Danny Robinson took a swing pass 27 yards into the red zone, but the play was brought back for one of the Cowboys' numerous penalties. The drive ended with Gutierrez being hit while throwing and the Red Devils intercepting the pass. They then ground out the clock on the ground to earn their rst win of the district season. The Cowboys played very hard and with great intensity on Friday night, but made too many mistakes and needed to play with more composure. That will be a point of emphasis for the rest of the season for the young Cowboys.JV loses heartbreakerThe Cowboys JV football played tough against the Port Charlotte Pirates. The Cowboys scored in the rst quarter when freshman Jose Lopez connected with freshman Jake Martinez, but the Cowboys missed their extra point. For the rest of the night the defenses for both teams stood their ground and made points very hard to come by. The Cowboys went into halftime with a 6-0 lead. The defensive struggle picked up where it left off in the second half. The defenses were hitting hard and carrying out their assignments, however the Pirates notched one touchdown and the extra point, which was the difference. Some standout players on defense for the Cowboys were Arnoldo Ayala, Even Vasquez, Jesus Peqeuno and Garrett Coker. The 7-6 loss was tough, but the young Cowboys look to bounce back and get into the win column this Wednesday at 6 p.m. when Lemon Bay's JV team comes to town.

These links are now on display on the cafeteria stage. Other events took place throughout the week to help the students of Country Oaks understand the importance of commemorating the memory of such a tragic day. Mrs. Luckey showed a schooltube video on “Heroes,” while individual classroom teachers showed other age appropriate videos or simply just discussed the tragic events of that infamous day and how it has affected so many lives and our country since.

Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electr onic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: oquendo.ana@epamail.epa.gov.. Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The nal Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or signi cant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.oviregion4/air/pennits/Florida.htin. Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661 d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d (b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
