Thursday, May 5, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 18 Longtime resident Millard Wagnon is well known for his dedication to veterans and their welfare. As a Navy veteran himself, he is an active member of American Legion Post 130, VFW 10100 and is a staunch supporter of DAV Chapte r 144 as well as of LaBelle Kiwanis. One of his many volunteer activities is providing free transportation for veterans to their VA appointments. On April 2, at the V A Volunteer Awards and Recognition Luncheon at Lexington Countr y Club Fort Myers honored VA volunteers from around the area. Onc e again, Millard was at the forefront, along with other volunteer drivers representing Hendry, DeSoto, Collier, Charlotte and Highlands counties, VA staffers offered their sincer e respect and appreciation to thos e volunteers who serve the VA clinics in Fort Myers, Naples and Por t Charlotte in so many ways. The local VA is the recipient o f services from over 100 local volunteers, ensuring area veterans o f much more than could be provided without their aid, especially in this time of budget cutbacks. According to Volunteer Services Specialist Jean Fishler of the Southern Clinics, “Volunteers are critical in helping us deliver quality care to our veteran patients.” Millard’s 6,250 hours of volunteer service transporting patients from Hendry County to appointments at Fort Myers and other clinics for the American Legion was the highest honor awarded at this year’s luncheon. “The VA Volunteer Program VA fetes local volunteers Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantLink in the chain of nature on Earth DayLaBelle is well known for its impressive concentration of oak trees at Barron Park, the green heart of the city. On April 25 community members dedicated to continuing LaBelle’s well deserved reputation as the City of Oaks into the future, gathered for the ceremonial planting of an oak on the east side of the park. Mayor Paul Puletti said it was a tting place because the city expects to lose some trees on the west side of the park when the new bridge is built. The tree came from the Florida Department of Forestry and was planted by the Hendry-LaBelle Rec Department and City of LaBelle.

That’s Craig Brooks behind the tree. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their April 24 regular meeting, the board of Hendry County Commissioners clari ed the local preference, setting it at 10.4999 percent. The board unanimously passed a motion stating that if a local bidder is within 10.4999 pecent of a non-local low bidder, the local bidder will have the opportunity to match the low bid.Public hearingsHendry County Associate Planner Sarah Catala presented public hearings. She presented LPA recommendations for a PUD amendment on Riverbend Drive. The amendment seeks to reduce a proposed development from 24 to eight residential lots that will share one driveway connection to Riverbend Drive. The area is bordered by Glades County wooded areas, the Caloosahatchee River and, on the east, by low density residential rural estates. Horses and cows will be County sets local preference My name is Robin Knight McLean and I am asking for your support in running for the Of ce of Property Appraiser in Glades County. My husband, Brian, and I live in Muse in the Jacks Branch area where we have been together for 16 years. My family moved to South Florida 80 years ago settling rst in the Clewiston area before branching out to surrounding communities. At school age my family moved to Indiantown where I was educated from Kindergarten through 7th grade. Before the 8th grade we moved to the Paci c Northwest where I graduated from a large high school in Corvallis, Oregon. My rst career was in law enforcement as a cadet deputy and I married a local police of cer. We started a family and changed career paths to the Oil and Gas Industry that was booming in Farmington, New Mexico. My life took another path 18 years later when both children left for college and I moved back to Florida and married Brian McLean.

Brian raised his two girls in the swamp and both J ulie and Laura have stayed in the area. Julie McGirt teaches math at LaBelle Middle School. Laura Phillips is an accountant for Liquid Plant in Immokalee and also my Campaign Treasurer. Their husbands, Jeff and Charlie respectively, are also Volunteer Firemen for LaBelle Fire Department. Brian and I are active members in the Alva United Methodist Church. My promise to you will be to focus on emerging technologies and provide a quality product to the Citizens of Glades County. I’m not talking about only assessing property. The picture is bigger than that. Larry Luckey has done his job estimating the market value of property and appraising for tax collection. My vision is much larger. The property appraiser should be the platform to build and network other department data which can be provided to inside and outside customers. Plainly stated, have a kick butt W eb site developed with GIS tools that will display aerials and parcel addressing with correct street names. One address and one address only! This basic product can then be provided to other Web mapping services such as MapQuest, Bing Maps, Google and also Car Navigation Systems such as TomTom and OnStar. Talk about putting Glades County on the map…. wow! Now take this idea and start building layers on this map such as Parcel Land Use, Future Land Use, Building Permits, Recreational Area, Wet Lands and Utility Structures and on and on and on. You now have a product that can be used by real estate appraisers, title companies, insurance companies, water management and interested investors. Do you get the big picture? It’s no longer about just assigning a value to a parcel for collecting taxes, which will continue, but will be used as a tool for many, many agencies and private businesses. I remember years ago trying to re nance my home. It took so long because the assigned real estate appraiser would have to drive to Moore Haven and look up records and he wasn’t going to be in the area for several weeks. I couldn’t wrap my head around why it would take so long until it was explained that the comparables he needed could not be obtained from any networked database. Understand that I found this hard to accept. I was a licensed Real Estate Agent years ago in what I thought was a remote area of the Rocky Mountains but compared to Glades County we were light years ahead in networking our Real Estate information. For the last 8.5 years, I have worked as E9-1-1 Coordinator for Hendry County. I have worked very hard to build an excellent network with the Hendry County Property Appraiser’s Of ce. Phill Pelletier and his staff have relied on me to provide them with addressing and street names. This partnership has resulted in a fantastic product for the public on so many levels. Phill understands that if we tried to do this without working together we would have two different products that would be inferior. His of ce provides the parcel shape les and I provide the street and addressing. Go to his Web site: www.hendryprop.com and look at his GIS Map. The 911 map that is used to locate 911 callers is one of the products of this collaboration. Sheriff Steve Whidden, Police Chief Don Gutshall and the Seminole Police Department use this map for displaying caller location. This same map is also used by the Building Permit and Zoning Department; it’s also used by the Engineering Department which issues driveway permits. The database is used by the Elections Department to verify voter registration. And the map and data are used by the Post Masters to determine if a mailing address or physical address is valid. Are you getting the picture? The data just doesn’t belong to one department. We have broken down so many barriers and have provided a good product to be shared. This is why I want to be the next Property Appraiser for Glades County. I want to break down barriers and build a network. I have the skills, knowledge and just like the Verizon commercial… a lot of skilled technicians standing behind me wanting to help build a network a product that Glades County can be proud of. Understand that this will be a process, it will not all be done in the rst year. It will require budgeting for software, programming and consulting. There is always a start up cost when you change or update technology but you take it one step at a time and don’t reinvent the wheel. Instead build on what you have. Go with what you know, buy only what you need. It’s not a huge expense and it’s not rocket science. But it will take a commitment and I’m willing to take on that commitment. I only have two weeks to get my petitions signed. I am asking for support in getting my name on the ballot. My husband and I will be in the communities asking for your signature. Just give me chance to make a big difference and put Glades County on the map. Email me at swamprobin@msn.com if you want to sign a petition or donate to the campaign. CandidateContinued From Page 1 has certainly bene ted over the years, along with our patients, with Millard’s continued assistance,” Ms. Fisler added. Nationally, the VA Voluntary Service (VAVS) Program is one of the largest volunteer programs in the federal government, thanks to volunteers like Millard. In 2011, their efforts provided a combined total o f over $354 million in time and gifts, including over 27,221,727 miles compiled by volunteer drivers. The VAVS within the V A health care system has assisted direct patient care and support activities since 1946, offering many opportunities for volunteers at the local level.

Buhlmahn Groves was seeking to amend the existing PUD to allow citrus trees for the expansion of an existing adjacent grove situated between the river and CR 78. The grove has been there since 1970s. The request was approved. The board approved amendments to buffering standards for the Airglades Planned Industrial District. The required landscaped open space was reduced from 20 percent to ten percent, providing more exibility for businesses.Florida Rural Legal ServicesThe commissioners heard a rundown of Florida Rural Legal Services (FRLS) activity in Hendry County by Donald Isaac. At a previous meeting the board questioned a request by FRLS for some $20,000 in annual funding. The board wanted to know how much FRLS does in Hendry County. Mr. Isaac told them the money is from “pass through” funds. FRLS has no permanent ofce here but staff comes to Hendry County as needed. Mr. Isaac brought information that FRLS handled 177 in cases in 2011 in Hendry. He said his of ce only serves about 20 pecent of the need here at this time. Director of Grants and Special Projects Janet Papinaw brought forward an appliction for ad valorem tax rebates for All Juice and Beverages LLC. Staff is working to revamp the application process, creating a more streamlined approach. A vote on the changes is set for May 8. All Juice and Beverage plans to bring 13 new jobs to the county.

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 3 Caloosa Belle May 3, 2012 A rrest Reports Conservation center stage for city commission by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their April 12 meeting, LaBelle city commissioners proclaimed April Water Conservation Month. Phil Flood of the South Florida Water Management District was on hand to accept the proclamation. He noted the city's storm water and drainage activity and its use of automatic meter readers, w hich he said save money as well as some 1.5 million gallons of water per year. He also provided a quick update on the SFWMD governing board, which cites a seasonal blue algae increase in the river and other area waters. He said the bloom is minimal at this time but the board is monitoring it. He said there are three small patches around LaBelle at this time.These algal blooms can cause an ecological problem, he said and may be caused by heat, water clarity, nutrients and a slow water ow.Tree boardThe commission also passed a resolution setting up a Tree Board in support of the Tree City USA membership. The board and the city's membership in the program are intended to provide health well-managed urban forests by protecting trees. They will also provide cleaner air, shadier streets and aesthetic beauty.Fire report LaBelle Fire Chief Ray Pittman reported that his department answered 78 calls for service in March and the severe dry conditions that led to an 80-acre re Easter Sunday. He said his department is now equipped with new 800 megahertz radios for all vehicles as well as four portables, all received through the county, which has a grant for $400,000 to provide the rest of the portables needed for all county departments. He said former EMT Amy Perez is now serving as the LFD's volunteer secretary and that there is now a full roster of 23 re ghters on the department.Water treatment plantApplied Technology Management's Tim Taylor reported that bidding interest is high for the city's new reverse osmosis water treatment plant. Deadline for bids was April 30. It is hoped the bid can be awarded at the city's May meeting, but a special meeting may be necessary if there are any snags in the process. Pain clinicsBianca Ross, Program Coordinator, Drug Free Hendry County for the Hendry/Glades Health Department, appeared to bring the board's attention to recent legislation on pain clinics known as "pill mills." Ms. Ross, City Planner Shellie Johnson and City Attorney Jimmy Luckey will collaborate to work on an appropriate city ordinance to regulate them. Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSouth Florida Water Management’s Phil Flood, left, accepts the City of LaBelle proclamation designating April as Water Conservation Month. It happened at the April 12 city commission meeting. A two-vehicle crash resulted in minor injuries April 27. The accident took place on SR 29 south of Church Road about 8:14 a.m. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Jose Alfredo Cisneros Jr., 19, of Moore Haven was travelong southbound on SR 29S in a 1999 Chevy Malibu.

The left front of the Cisneros vehicle struck the left side of the Rodriguez vehicle in the northbound lane. After the collision, the right rear tire o f the Rodriguez vehicle blew out and the driver lost control. The vehicle began rotating clockwise in both lanes. Both vehicles came to a nal rest on the east grassy shoulder of the roadway. Both drivers were transported to LeHigh Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

Independent is owned by a unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the community. Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in Independents mission of journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the communitys deliberation of public issues.We Pledgeƒ€To operate this newspaper as a public trust €To help our community become a better place to live and work, through our dedication to conscientious journalism. €To provide the information citizens need to make their own intelligent decisions about public issues. €To report the news with honesty, accuracy, purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compassion. €To use our opinion pages to facilitate community debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions. €To disclose our own conflicts of interest or potential conflicts to our readers. €To correct our errors and to give each correction the prominence it deserves. €To provide a right to reply to those we write about. €To treat people with courtesy, respect and compassion. by Matt KindermannFor the past two weeks we have been discussing free and low cost career interest assessments designed to increase your awareness of potential opportunities for career advancement and career satisfaction. We suggested writing an Interest Inventory and relating your unique interests to available jobs. Other options include the online assessment found at www.mynextmove.org which is designed to suggest possible careers that match you personality, and the on-line assessment at www.careerinfonet.org which is designed to relate your current skills to different job possibilities. First, after logging in as an individual user on www.employ orida.com, nd the link for "Labor Market Services" under the "Services for Individuals" box on the left side of the screen. Inside the Labor Market Services folder there is an option for "Occupational Pro le." The user can insert different occupation titles which will search for similar occupations, as well as providing a list of all the available jobs for those occupations in the area along with a wage distribution table. For instance, by typing "cashier" inside the Occupational Pro le search, you would receive a list of all the cashier jobs within 50 miles of LaBelle, and a list of similar jobs like Cage Cashier and Retail Sales. Next, nd www.personalitypage.com and click on the question mark for the personality assessment. This is a Myers-Briggs questionnaire, the same type that most psychiatrists charge big money for, and might shock you with its accuracy. If you are a college student, many educational institutions will offer a similar Myers-Briggs test for free or at a reduced rate in the Career Development Of ce. From the website, this assessment will cost you $5.00 and it will take an individual with average computer and reading skills about 45 minutes to complete. At the end of the assessment you can download or print a comprehensive report that explains your personality strengths and weaknesses, along with your ideal career paths. 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 read into the question and attribute building kitchens with working independently. Do not read into the questions!

For job search assistance or employer support, speak with an employment representative nearest you by going to www.sw works. org and click on "Locations." by Denise GrimsleyIn this year's legislative session, we tackled a number of issues important to Florida's Heartland. Unlike the U.S. Congress which meets year-round, the Florida Legislature meets annually in a 60-day session. This year, we had two constitutional responsibilities: approval of a balanced budget and apportioning new legislative and congressional districts. We did both. Balanced Budget. The $70 billion budget we approved was done in the face of a sixth straight year of shrinking tax revenues. Also unlike the U.S. Congress, Florida's constitution requires that we spend no more than we take in. We resolved not to deal with this shortfall with tax increases, and we stayed true to our word. We avoided steep cuts to hospitals, nursing homes and drug and mental health treatment programs. Where state jobs were eliminated, we attempted to do so through un lled positions and attrition. We were able to increase K-12 education funding by $1 billion, as well as funding for the developmentally disabled. I said at the outset of the budget process that it would have to be a budget based on needs, not wants. We know some will cry foul by our attempt to balance the budget without tax increases. But we have prioritized our spending in order to deliver a government Floridians can afford. Job Creation and Tax Relief. Our main priority was getting Floridians back to work by constructing a healthy business environment for our communities with over $223 million in economic incentive programs to attract new businesses and promote job growth. We eased the unemployment tax burden that often hits small businesses the hardest, as well as incentives to support job creation in manufacturing. We also authorized the family-friendly BackTo-School sales tax holiday for August 3-5, 2012, for clothes and books less than $75 and school supplies less than $15. Public Safety. We approved a host of child abuse protections including improvements to the abuse hotline, penalties for failure to report a missing child and nes for colleges that fail to report child abuse (in response to the Penn State scandal). We also increased la w enforcement tools for combating human traf cking which is becoming more prevalent, even in Florida. PIP Insurance. We also approved major Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance reform. I f you're like most Florida drivers, you've seen your PIP premium skyrocketing. Staged accidents and the shady clinics treating socalled victims are driving costs for the rest of us through the roof. The new law ensures drivers injured in an accident are receiving the health treatment they need and helps to crack down on automobile fraud schemes. Smaller Government. I am a rm believer that just because the Legislature meets, we don't need to spend each waking hour creating more laws. In that vein, we approved legislation eliminating over 270 agency rules and regulations. We also passed 50 bills repealing outdated or unneeded laws. In particular, we repealed the burdensome septic tank inspection mandate that would have forced many Heartland homeowners to shell-out hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to comply. This was my nal session as your representative in the House. I appreciate the trust you have placed in me over the past eight years. Reducing the size and scope of government is never nished, nor is the task o f ef ciently doing what government must, at its basic, accomplish. My door continues to be open as we, together, seek to create a government of, by and for the people. (State Representative Denise Grimsley is a Republican serving House District 77 (Glades, Hendry, Highlands, and Collier counties). 2012 Legislative Recap To All our Friends and Colleagues:We here at The Talkin' Monkeys Project w ish to thank all who have taken the time and effort to help us achieve our goal of establishing an educational primate sanctuary w orthy of note, here in Hendry County. It has been a long hard struggle, full of strenuous work, meticulous planning and the proverbial and literal blood, sweat and tears. On Tuesday, March 27, the Board of County Commissioners granted us the ability to plan for the future by ratifying the original Zoning Determination and granting us a Special Exception naming our sanctuary as an educational facility in Hendry County. This will also allow us the opportunity to transfer our sanctuary to an institution of higher learning in the future as an Outpost Noninvasive Research Facility. Throughout the last ten years, we have worked diligently to create a sanctuary worthy of the concept. We hoped to create a place which would be a sanctuary of peace and tranquility for our primates, but also a place for meditation and re ection for the humans who come here. We believe we have achieved an oasis of calm and unique education for the future. The last few years have been extremely stressful under the assault and continued harassment of one particular party who moved into our area well after we had established our facility.

We pray for God to bless each of you. Eddie and Becky Mason by Pat DobbinsSome wild animals can look very cute and if an animal is sick or injured, your rst instinct might be to try to help it. Please avoid contact with any wild or stray animals to protect you and your family from the risk of rabies exposure. In our area, raccoons, bats and foxes are the animals most frequently diagnosed with rabies. Other animals that are at high risk for rabies can include skunks, otters, bobcats and let’s not forget the stray or unvaccinated cats, dogs and ferrets. In prior years, Hendry and Glades counties have received reports of rabid animals. “Rabies can be a potentially fatal disease. It is important not to handle wild animals, be aware of unusual acting animals and keep pets vaccinated against rabies,” said Brian Prowant, Environmental Health Director of the Hendry and Glades Counties Health Departments. It’s important to remember that you can get exposed to rabies in several ways, not just from an animal bite. Rabies is transmitted through exposure to the saliva and nervous tissue from a rabid animal through a bite, scratch or contact w ith mucous membranes such as the eyes, nose, or mouth. Hendry and Glades County Health Departments work with Animal Control in the cities of LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore Haven in responding to incidents of animal bites. When deemed medically necessary, suspected animals are quarantined and can be tested for rabies through the Department of Health state laboratory. The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies:  Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets.  Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be properly cared for or regularly vaccinated.  Do not handle, feed or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans or litter.  Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly and never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home.  Prevent bats from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools and other similar areas, where they might come in contact with people and pets.  Call your local animal control agency to remove any stray animals from your neighborhood. Animals that are acting unusual or that seem sickly should be reported to Animal Control for handling. Anyone who is bitten or scratched by wild animals or strays should report the incident to their health care provider, as well as Animal Control and the local health department. Please contact the Hendry or Glades County Health Departments: LaBelle (863) 674-4047 ext.152, Clewiston (863) 902-4224 ext. 504, and Moore Haven (863) 946-0707 ext. 200 Please keep your pets under direct supervision so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact Animal Control: City of LaBelle (863) 674-338, City of Clewiston (863) 983-1457, Moore Haven (863) 946-6000. Y ou can limit your exposure to rabies Submitted photoSenseless destructionThe Rotary Club of LaBelle has long taken a keen interest in the laBelle Nature park on Fraser Ave., helping to keep the grounds clean and overgronw areas in check. The group also installed a number of very comfortable benches throughout the park for the pleasure of all who come to enjoy the park. Recently, this senseless act of destruction greeted park goers. Everyone has a responsibility to help keep public properties in good shape for the entire community. Please report such occurances when you nd them.

Church Briefs by Pat DobbinsThe Hendry and Glades County Health Departments advises parents, childcare workers and healthcare providers to make sure that children are properly immunized against Pertussis, which is a respiratory disease commonly called “whooping cough.” The Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) experts also advise new parents, grandparents and relatives to get fully immunized before being around an infant. Since January 1, 2012, DOH has identi ed 112 con rmed and probable cases of Pertussis, (with at least one case in twenty-two of Florida counties). These counties include: Alachua (3 cases), Broward (2 cases), Citrus (1 case), Clay (1 case), Collier (4 cases), Miami-Dade(15 cases), Duval (2 cases), Escambia (1 case), Gulf (1case), Hillsborough (35 cases), Lee (13 cases), Leon (1 case), Martin (1 case), Monroe (4 cases), Nassau (3 cases), Orange (3 cases), Osceola(3 cases), Palm Beach(7 cases), Pasco (5 cases), Polk (5 cases), Seminole (1 case) and Volusia (1 case). The occurrences in Florida are consistent with the rise in cases seen across the United States. Recently, outbreaks have occurred in Montana, North Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin, and Washington State. Family members are most often the transmission source of pertussis to infants. A typical case of Pertussis starts with a cough, runny nose, sneezing and a low-grade fever. After 1-2 weeks, the coughing becomes more severe. Rapid coughing ts can occur that often end with a whooping sound. Pertussis is spread when infected individuals cough or sneeze while in close contact with others. Pertussis is most dangerous for infants and children, and it is usually a milder disease in adolescents and adults. Pertussis can be treated with antibiotics. How can Pertussis be prevented?  Children 6 years of age and younger are routinely vaccinated against tetanus, diphtheria and Pertussis. Ask your healthcare provider if your children have received all o f the Pertussis shots needed for their age.  Age-appropriate immunization with a vaccine against Pertussis is required in Florida for attendance in licensed child care centers and schools through seventh grade. Vaccination of children attending child cares and schools helps to protect both the children who receive the vaccine, and the children surrounding them. Protect yourself and others from whooping cough

As visitors, LaBelle came to bat rst. In the rst inning, both teams had two players hit long y balls that were caught for outs, and bunts that were put out on rst base. Top of the second and with 2 outs, Abbie O'Ferrell hit a single, but was stranded on base. In the bottom of the second, LaBelle walked the rst batter. This was the only walk given up by LaBelle in the game. After two outs, Bishop Verot hit a single bringing the rst batter in for a run. This hitter was left on base after LaBelle struck out the next batter for the third out. The score was 1-0 in favor of Bishop Verot. Top of the fourth and with 2 outs, Rachael Reinbott hit a single, but was stranded on base. Top of the fth, Abbie O'Ferrell was the rst player at bat. She hit a single to left eld, but no one was able to bring her home. In the bottom of the sixth, Bishop Verot hit a single. Before being put out at second base, another player hit a single which brought in their second run. This made the score 2-0 in Bishop Verot's favor. With two outs in the top of the seventh, Abbie O'Ferrell hit a stand-up double, and was left stranded on base at the end of the game. Behind the pitching of Gennifer Raulerson, each of the Cowgirls displayed their defensive prowess. Whether it was catching a y ball or throwing someone out, each one did their job and did it very well. Even the catcher wasn't left out as one of the pop-ups came her way and Elanee Marroquin caught it for the out. The defense that the Cowgirls displayed could not have been better. Hopefully, all of these team mates, except Seniors, will return next year for another exciting season of Cowgirl fastpitch softball. Cowgirls fall to Verot Head Coach Maurice McClain, Sr. is proud of how his Cowboys nished off the 20112012 weightlifting season!

The Hendry County Special Needs Shelter located at West Glades School, in Muse, has auxiliary power and is capable of providing a safer refuge for individuals, and their caregivers, who require health oversight. It is strongly suggested that you pursue primary evacuation plans with family, friends, neighbors, church organizations, etc. Speak with your physician and family about your transportation and sheltering needs. If you require hospitalization, have your physician execute the necessary pre-admission procedures well in advance of a known, pending disaster such as a hurricane. Again, talk to your family, friends, and neighbors about providing you with evacuation transportation. If you live in a mobile home park or an area with an established homeowners association, inquire about your association's disaster plan. Also, if you have special needs that do not require medical sheltering, speak with your Minister, or af liate religious association, or civic organization to see what types of evacuation sponsorship programs are available. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed. If you need to attend the West Glades School PSN Shelter, you are required to register before you arrive at the shelter each year, and you are required to bring a caregiver with you into the shelter. Registration forms for Hendry County residents can be obtained from the Hendry County Health Department and the Hendry County Emergency Management Of ce. Once your completed registration is received and reviewed, you will receive noti cation as to whether you qualify for the Special Needs Shelter or not.

by Pat DobbinsLast month, April 21-28, was recognized as National Infant Immunization Week. It is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs in promoting healthy communities. National Infant Immunization Week provides a valuable opportunity for our community to tell people the importance of vaccinating all children. Vaccination is one of the most important ways a parent can protect a child’s health. Today, children can be protected from more vaccine-preventable diseases than ever before. Infant immunization is a safe, simple and inexpensive way to protect children from potentially deadly infectious diseases. Babies need many immunizations before two years of age to protect against serious childhood diseases like polio, measles, whooping cough and diphtheria. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offers the following tips for parents and caregivers:  Take babies to the health department, a family doctor or a clinic for their recommended shots. Immunizations start at birth and continue throughout the rst two years of a child’s life.  At each visit, discuss immunizations with a or health care provider. Ask if the baby is up-to-date on shots.  Keep the immunization record in a safe place and bring it to every doctor’s visit.  Ask the doctor when to return for the baby’s next shots. Make an appointment and write it down.

by Cynthia MottDorothy Hill Risher was born on her family’s Fort Denaud homestead in 1916, seven years before Hendry County pulled on its boots, broke from Lee County and claimed its own borders. In 1937, Dorothy Hill married Wallace Risher, from South Carolina. The couple produced three children: Wally, Deanie, and Nancy. The Risher children grew up in LaBelle’s Belmont neighborhood, one street over from their mother’s childhood home. Wallace and Dorothy were married 55 years, parting only when he died. The three Risher children married one year apart: Wally to Gina Mendez in 1960, Deanie to Frank Cardimen in 1961, and Nancy to Elmer Mott in 1962. In this age of fty-percent divorce rates, a remarkable thing happened — all three Risher-sibling marriages have now passed the half-century mark. Collectively, her children’s marriages have given Dorothy grandchildren through great-great grandchildren, for a whopping total of thirty-plus offspring. Dorothy turned 95 last fall, so continues to see and enjoy the results of her own commitment. What is the secret to all this marital longevity which, incidentally, was not passed on to every member of the succeeding generation? What wisdom is amassed in 150 collective years of marriage? Answers differ. Nancy said, “Our parents stayed married, but they always told us if we were unhappy in a marriage to get out of it, because life is short. I think you need to respect your spouse, and to need them. We’ve been very blessed. Plus, a lot of it is just pure luck.” “Not so!” said her husband, Elmer. “What it all boils down to is love, real love. With it you can make it through anything, and without it you just can’t.” Gina and Wally agree: “You have to share the same basic values — love and the commitment to stay married. ” Deanie said, “The secret is love. Plus, a great sense of humor and dancing in the kitchen for fty years! Adoration and a little patience on both sides helps too.” However, Deanie’s husband, Frank, ma y have come the closest to real truth. He said, “The secret to the three Risher kids staying married fty years is simple —they all married saints!” 870 W.
