by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The University of Florida Insitutie of Food and Agricultural Services (IFAS) station at Immokalee is on the cutting edge of agricultural science the hallmark of Hendry County’s past, present and future. For decades this area has been renowned for its winter vegetables, with citrus and other ag products in a supporting role. IFAS and the University of Florida have been working on a new south Florida crop one that looks like a great t for the area and another great support crop. Peaches. Those sweet, juicy beautiful fruits are welcome on tables throughout the world and many new varieties are very compatible with South Florida’s growing conditions. Dr. Robert Rouse is one of the leading gures in developing terri c South Florida peaches. Dr. Rouse’s research has shown peaches can be a viable alternate crop for citrus growers. With no freeze worries, a good market price and a perfect niche in the growing season, the Florida peach has a lot going for it. Agricultural scientists have developed a number of low chill subtropical peaches for this area. Move over citrus; here come Florida peaches Thursday, April 19, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 16 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Hollywood is a long way from LaBelle, but maybe not as far as you might think. Mike Cox of MC Ventures has gotten the attention of the reality show world with his uniquely Florida vehicles. In fact, lming has already been completed featuring Swamp buggies of Florida, a division of MC Ventures, on two popular reality shows. Exact dates are not nalized yet, but the networks have approved both and they will de nitely be aired. One should air in May, the other in June. MC Ventures’ segment on “How Do That Do it” will be featured on the Discovery Channel. They are also the subject of a segment set for a new show coming to the Travel Channel called American Originals, In the rst segment of the rst episode, viewers will watch Mike and his crew as they go through a typical day building not-so-typcal Florida-style buggies. That show will also feature a piece on a Key West company making high pressure sea water jet packs on 100-foot tethers for anyone looking for a unique adventure. Last year Mike said they lmed pilots for a reality show for Pilgrim TV, which owns such shows as American Choppers, Dirty Jobs and Tap Out. Although the networks have not picked up that show at this time, the exposure has sparked interest in lming for other shows. Two different lm crews were in LaBelle in early February to lm the daily process of creating one of Mike’s unique machines. For ten days these Hollywood cinematographers and their crews stayed at local hotels including Port LaBelle Inn and brought a little Hollywood money into area businesses another little perk for the local economy.

That chill unit uctuates, as you move further south on the Florida peninsula. Scientists have managed to develop types of fruit with chill hour requirements that vary, making them viable for Florida's striated temperature zones. Some varieties have been developed that only need 150 chill hours per winter at 58 degrees or below these are the ones south Florida can produce. Peaches coming from Chile ended as of A pril 1 and more northern US states won't have crops available for a couple months after that, leaving the market open for Florida peaches that mature only in April and May. Right now these high quality varieties are coming into season. It's perfect timing, with no other peaches on the market at this time anywhere in the world, Dr. Rouse said. There are some drawbacks to growing peaches in South Florida, however. Peaches are an "intense" crop that needs a lot of care, so they're not for everybody. Citrus growers used to fruit that can take a lot of handling will need a little education to add peaches to their agricultural reportoire. First, the trees must be "trained" by pruning twice each year, once in summer and once in winter. Fruit on the tree must be thinned by hand to ensure large fruit for market. Leaving too much fruit on the tree will result in small fruit, according to Dr Rouse. They'll still be tasty, but too small for marketing. Also, any tree will only support a certain amount of fruit. Harvesting the delicate fruit must be done by hand, with the fruit being gently placed in small baskets. Unlike citrus, peaches bruise easily. There is also only about a week-long window to pick the fruit. When they're ripe, they must be picked immediately. To be a viable crop for a commercial grower, Dr. Rouse advises a serious peach grower put in several varieties so that when one is picked, the other is coming right behind it. Right now no one is growing peaches in the Immokalee area, Dr. Rouse said, although a few years ago one grower experimented with them. At this time, Southwest Florida has about 160,000 acres of peaches from Charlotte to Collier County. Hendry has 65,000 acres, They have already found markets at Walmarts south of Lakeland and at Sweetbay markets. Dr. Rouse warns prospective peach growers to take care with choosing varieties. During extra warm winters, like this past one, fruit production decreases due to a lack of minimum dormancy. Right now these high quality varieties are coming into season. Dr. Mongi Zekri, UF-IFAS, works in the LaBelle of ce and coordinated a recent workshop on peaches at the IFAS station in Immokalee. The Hendry of ce covers Hendry, Glades, Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. At this time, Dr. Zekri said most of the peach groves in this area are concentrated in Charlotte County. He said the extension of ce can provide advice for potential peach growers on appropriate varieties and educational information on how to plant, prune, trim and care for peach trees all of which are labor intensive. He noted that workers must be carefully trained in caring for and handling peaches because of their unique properties and delicacy. Zoe Schobert, IFAS Ag Assistant Supervisor, has been with the facility for about ten years, starting in the soil department. She has been working with Dr. Rouse seven years on the peach project, which occupies approximately ve acres at the IFAS station and includes some plum trees. She said peaches are easy to grow but labor intensive. She underscores that cold is essential for fruit growth, as is pruning twice each year. She added that chemicals can be used to help induce dormancy when necessary and peach trees are fertilized similarly to citrus. She cautions that it takes time to learn when peaches are ripe and each variety is different. They cannot be harvested when still green because they will not continue to ripen once they're picked. Zoe advises anyone interested in starting to start small till they get the hang of it and know they really want to do it. Of course, as with all market fruits, peaches require fertilizer, watering, pest and disease control. One advantage for this area is that these new varieties ripen during our dry season. During the summer rain y season pests become more of a problem, but the harvest is over by then. Dr. Phillip Stansly, Professor of Entomology at IFAS, explained some of the pest problems associated with peach trees. He said the Caribbean fruit y is the biggest pest for peaches. Growers should set out bait to detect them. Then take steps to irradicate them. Peaches are also susceptible to types of stink bugs that attack the fruit, weevils that attack the root and white peach scale which attacks the woody part of the plant. Dr. Stansly said peach growers must be observant when Caribbean ies are detected before harvest time. They should also be careful of what they plant in the vicinity o f their peach trees because certain pests will move from one to the other. Peaches Continued From Page 1 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle If you were at McDonald's April 7, you may have thought you heard the sound of angels in the air. And you would be right. The Shock Sisters, ve talented and spirited young ladies from 16 to 8, blended their v oices in praise outside the company of ce on Bridge Street. Sevyn, age 8, Gabriehl, 10, J oelle, 12, Tilitha "Tilly", 14, and Mickaylaa, 16, have been singing all their lives making a joyful noise unto the Lord with their tight, familial harmony. They were appearing with local gospel group Reel Love (the name comes from the command to be " shers of men"), which is made up of Trudy and Mark Henderson with Tim Miller. Tim is married to the girls' oldest sister, Aurielle. The majority of their music is Southern gospel, but it all has a message. Besides showcasing the talent and devotion of these young singers, the event helped them raise money for an upcoming trip to Georgia June 23-29 where they are to perform at several churches and Bluegrass festivals. They are working hard on getting donations for the trip. Home schooled by their mom, Julia, the sisters are always together. Their closeness is re ected in the playfulness they exude with each other as well as the way their voices blend. Until recently, the girls always sang a cappella, but the Hendersons have introduced them to singing with backup music. Trudy is as excited about the girls' talent as their mother, Julia, is. In fact, she has unof cially "adopted" them as grandchildren. The of cial formation of the Shock Sisters came about when Trudy was in charge of the Christmas children's cantata at Caloosa Baptist Church this past year. As she worked with Sevyn, Gabriehl and Joelle, she found they stole her heart. She said their natural family harmony is "awesome" and their inner beauty shines through even when they get a little rowdy. In January church members were challenged to use their God-given talents toward increasing the church's building fund. That's when Reel Love decided to use their talents for the cause and to include the sisters in that challenge. The of cial group rst sang as a group in public at the Front Porch restaurant. They have since performed at McDonald's twice, Cowboy Church in Venus twice, Cowbo y Church in Okeechobee, Maple Corner and Riverbend RV Motorpark twice. In the process, they have discovered that they have actually formed a Music Ministry. Wherever they sing, people are amazed and moved. Julia said they are just about always asked to come back. At the beginning, young Mickaylaa too k the lead in fashioning the sisters into a viable musical group. No doubt her experience as the leader of the sisters just naturally overlapped into the group. Trudy's pride in the girls just shines. "These girls are totally blessed with talent," she beams, adding that the offers and opSisters singing for the Lord in music ministrySee Sisters — Page 3

GRAN INAUGURACI"N!Se Habla EspaolUrgent & Convenient Care Center Katie Drake, D.O. A family business, including Mike, his wife Lorie and their daughters Bailey and Candice. MC Ventures has been in business since 1995. Mike and Lorie Cox started out making a pretty good living building dump truck bodies and trailers. They expanded their business by building swamp buggies, about one each year as a hobby. When the economy slipped, Mike and Lorie were looking for a way to bridge the loss in business. Their answer was to build swamp buggies and related parts on a full time basis. That decision, supported by some good friends, turned out to be a good one nancially and has also opened doors the Coxes never dreamed of. To date, the shop has produced over 50 swamp buggies for individuals, the Florid a Wildlife Commission, US Park Service, South Florida Water Management and the Seminole Tribe. In addition, they built a search and rescue buggy for the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce and re buggies for the Seminole Fire District, US Park Service and SFWMD. These re buggies are similar to regular swamp vehicles but are tted with tanks, pumps and giant tires to navigate through the swamp. Mike said his creations were credited with saving a lot of land and possible lives during the big Everglades re last year. portunities to sing at churches and events are continuing to come in. Now for the big news. A horse trainer, one of Julia's clients is a personal friend of country music stars the Bellamy Brothers and he is setting up a recording opportunity for the girls to make a CD of Christian music. Julia said they're making selections for the CD and practicing them hard while they're waiting for the call to come in. In the meantime, the girls are w orking on their own demo CD and learning more technical aspects of singing like timing. Each of the girls is unique. Sevyn is best at memorizing the words. W ith long swaying hair, she loves to mimic fashion models. Gabriehl mainly sings the low parts, but also does well on the high and lead parts. She's starting to learn the mandolin, but really needs a left-handed instrument if anyone has one. So far, she's managing to play the instrument upside down, but she really needs to have the proper instrument. She w ants to be a horse trainer. Tilitha sings with her sisters sometimes, but prefers to be in the background. As the group's bass guitarist, she picked up the basics in just three weeks from Mark. Tilly is the artist of the group. She loves sketching and drawing cartoons. Her talents also including acting and photography. All the girls have appeared with the Firehouse Cultural Centre. Joelle sees herself as a marine biologist one day studying sharks at the Georgia A quarium. Leader Mickaylaa has "the lungs" and most often sings lead, although the girls all sing at three or four levels of harmony, depending on the song. She's the perfectionist w ho gets frustrated when she doesn't feel she's got it just right. OUtside of music, animal husbandry her big interest. Big brother Caleb, 18, doesn't sing with his sisters. He's just very proud and wants the girls to "do something" with their talent "something big." Julia says her family has always sung and, although she also sings, she says she "just likes to hear the girls. "I'm very proud of them." Julia notes that their girls are dedicated to their craft, practicing songs for hours. She adds that it's worth doing well, if only for a season. Trudy has nothing but admiration for Julia as well, saying she's hardworking and energetic. In Trudy's words, working with the Shock girls has been a loud, confusing, but great time but no one knows where it will end. "God has a plan for us," Trudy is convinced. "We'll walk where He leads and continue getting better. We couldn't do this without God." Sunday, April 22, the Shock Sisters will be singing at the Cowboy Church in Venus. Head north of SR 29 to US 27, then north four or ve miles and turn left on D Jetson Road. Go another mile or so and look for big cross. Services begin at 9 a.m. with Pastor Frank Dana.

Career Interests Part 1 of 3by Matt KindermannEveryone knows someone who is perfectly happy in their job. You might catch yourself rolling your eyes when that unrealistically upbeat employee tells you all they ways in which their job is great. You might wonder how that lucky target of your jealousy found such a terri c career match. Well, there are many tools to assist the job seeker in identifying which career paths best suit their personal characteristics. Some are offered by for-pro t institutions that charge a signi cant fee. However, we have put together a list of many free and low cost tools that offer similar or even identical advice. The rst and easiest thing you can do is to make a list of all the things you like to do, this is called an "Interest Inventory." Revisit your interest inventory once a day for a week, crossing items off, rewording some, and adding others, until you are satis ed that you have a concise list of activities that you would be willing to do as a job. These interests can be as silly as "play with frogs." Next, after each interest, write down all the job key words you can think of that correlates to the task. For instance, if you have an interest in frogs, you could relate that to careers as a zoo keeper, nature park guide, or python hunter. Finally, conduct a job search on www. employ orida.com using those key words to locate a related job. Another good way to assess your career interests is to go to www.mynextmove. org and click on "Tell Us What You Like To Do." This assessment is free and will take a person with average reading and computer abilities about 20 minutes to complete. At the end of the assessment the program will show you a colored graph revealing your top two strongest personality traits. To view jobs associated with your codes, click "Next" and select a job zone which is the level of education you possess. As an example, high school graduates should choose job zone two and BA/BS holders should select job zone three. For best results concerning a personality assessment, always pick the answer that corresponds most with what you like to do, rather than what you want to do. If the question asks if you would like to build kitchens, do not mark the "strongly agree" bubble if you have been doing kitchens for years but hate it. Also do not mark the strongly agree button if you attribute building kitchens with working independently. The question is about kitchens, not about working independently. Do not read into the questions! Choose answers as if you were grading yourself on your ability to be objective.

Last Sunday night at the congregational meeting of Caloosa Baptist, a major shift was determined for the life of the church. After discussion for approximately 50 minutes, the church voted 100 percent to buy the former Flora & Ella's restaurant and property, along with all the furnishings and equipment. The church plans to use the building for educational needs, a larger fellowship hall, administrative of ces and to help service some of the needs within the LaBelle community. "We really need the space," said Dr. Les Morgan, pastor of the church. "We have seen more than 200 people come to faith in Christ in the last few years. We are full in both the sanctuary and in our classrooms. We have to move ahead to stay true our vision Be disciples and make disciples." There were a host of reasons that led the church to vote as it did. For about two years ideas were being explored on building a new sanctuary, adding classrooms and modifying existing facilities. However, purchasing the restaurant is considerably more economical than building an entirely new edi ce. The church intends to expand the current sanctuary to double its seating capacity, saving the congregation approximately $600,000. Also, with the church having ownership of the restaurant building it will provide highway frontage to the public, as well as additional parking. Pastor Morgan continued, "There are many people In Hendry County needing help, especially in today's economy. Having the restaurant facilities will allow us to come alongside of the people of LaBelle and surrounding areas. We want to assist families as best we can at holidays and other special occasions. This will enhance that effort." Recent modi cations have been done to the building as various restaurants have attempted to develop an ongoing business there. Therefore, the facility does not require any updating or renovation for the church to be able to begin its ministry there immediately after the legal transfer is completed. The church is thrilled about this decision to buy the restaurant. A great eruption o f thanks was given when it was announced that the vote was unanimous, followed b y clapping and singing praise to God. The unity was felt by those present and the tears o f joy were genuine. "We know what the will of the Lord is," said one member. "We are united and will be going to move forward to impact our community in a greater way and as affectively as possible." The church's building committee will continue to develop ideas for the expansion of the current sanctuary. These suggestions will to be presented to the church for approval in approximately three months. Construction will begin shortly afterwards as nances are secured. Caloosa Baptist welcomes any persons looking for a church home. The congregation gladly receives people of all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Service are at 9:15 and 10:30 Sunda y morning, at 6:00 Sunday evening, and the mid-week service is at 6:30 Wednesday evening. Caloosa Baptist is located on Highway 80 in LaBelle across from City Hall.

CPR Tools, Inc., your local computer repair, Data Recovery and Data Security Company is pledging to donate a portion of every commercial sale during the month of May to LaBelle High School. The company, in a show of support for the school, will contribute 10 percent of all May 2012 sales to the high school. John and Sue Benkert own CPR Tools and they feel strongly about the role of schools in preparing our youth for life in the “real w orld.” John said, “I believe that education should be our number one priority as an individual and a business, teachers should be given the tools to prepare students to lead us in the future.” Sue summed it up best with her comment, “What better way to support our local community than through those w ho educate and prepare our children with skills they’ll use the rest of their lives?” Principal Lucinda Kelly commented, “LHS is very pleased to be supported by this generous community effort from CPR Tools. Our students are a great investment and this is a wonderful way to help provide extra programs and incentives for them. This type of innovative giving is unprecedented!” This effort, which is part of CPR Tools “Cultivate, Prepare & Realize” program will occur annually and is designed to help our schools bridge the nancial gap between funding and the cost of providing a quality education for our youth. Another part of the program has CPR Tools employees volunteer their time to talk to students in the classroom about such topics as resume writing, interviewing and more. For the entire month of May when someone purchases any service or product CPR Tools will donate 10 pecent of that purchase to the high school. CPR Tools is not only the world leader in data recovery, the company will also perform data erasure services that meet all government laws and standards including HIPAA, HiTECH, GLBA and others. Whether you own a business that has to comply with personal information protection laws or you simply want to donate or recycle your computer CPR Tools can help.
