Thursday, June 7, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 23 by Jessica SchultzParents and school administrators eagerly awaited the new FCAT 2.0 scores for Hendry County Schools. With last week’s results, some illuminating information has surfaced abou t the performance of local third graders on the reading portion of the FCAT. Jumping to a new standard mean t some uncertainty as to how well local schools would perform. Of special not e was the reading portion, since the ne w standards required students score a t least a Level 2 on reading to be eligibl e for promotion to the fourth grade. Although the new grading system is mor e stringent, data shows some promising gures for schools in Hendry County. So how did the local third grad e population manage this new generation of standards? The reading portion of the FCA T is graded on a scale from oneve. Statewide gures showed a slight drop in scores for reading, with 56 percen t of all students achieving a score of 3 or higher on the test. Most schools in the county fared worse, with only on e school posting a higher percentage o f students showing mastery of the reading section of the test. Eastside Elementary Schoo l posted exceptional results. Only seven percent of third graders there scored a one on the FCAT. Sixty-seven percen t of third graders passed with a three o r higher. Statewide, only 18 percent of students received the lowest possibl e score for reading. In the county, onl y Eastside and Country Oaks Elementar y in LaBelle had a smaller percentage o f students scoring a Level 1. Promising results for reading FCAT 2.0 Caloosa Belle/ Dale ConyersLaBelle High School graduated 216 seniors June 2 and the celebration t the occasion with each new graduate stepping off the football eld into the next phase of his or her life.

On May 19, 32-year-old Hermalinda Ramirez of Clewiston was driving a 2001 Ford Explorer, traveling east on El Paso Ave. E. She made a wide right turn onto San Diego Street S. When the front left w heel traveled off the shoulder, the v ehicle overturned into the canal, submerging the passenger compartment.

Edward A. Upthegrove Elementary showed 20 percent of students with a Level 1. However, 50 percent of their third graders scored a three or higher to pass to the fourth grade. Clewiston’s Westside Elementary saw 24 percent of third graders scoring a Level 1 the FCAT for 2012. Fifty percent of students passed the FCAT with a three or above. Of particular note, Westside also shows the highest percentage of students in the county who scored a Level 5, with 12 percent reaching that metric. Central Elementary School saw 36 percent of third graders earning a one on the 2012 FCAT. Thirty-three percent of their third graders scored a three or higher. None of the third graders attending Central made a ve on their FCAT, the only school in the county to post zero earnings for that achievement level. Even with Central Elementary posting a higher percentage of Level 1 achievements for Clewiston Schools, it is not the highest for Hendry County. LaBelle Elementary School had 41 percent of their students score a one putting nearly half of all students at that school at risk for being held back. Only 24 percent of LaBelle Elementary students scored a three or higher. Part of the challenge for schools in the rural Hendry County area is the high number of minority, English language learners and special needs students who traditionally struggle on assessment tests. Happy that her school fared most favorably on the FCAT, Lori Duckstein, Eastside principal, was asked how her school overcame the challenges. "Every child will succeed when you have high expectations," Ms. Duckstein said. "The students will rise to meet the standards." Last December, the State Board of Education set higher achievement levels for the FCAT 2.0 Reading and Mathematics. This has been the rst time the Board of Education has raised the FCAT standards in ten years. According to the Florida Department of Education, the "curriculum standards were adopted to help ensure students are being adequately prepared for college and today's competitive job market." Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said the results help determine how and where resources should be focused so students struggling with reading get the extra help they need. "Whether we're preparing a child for college, career training or the workplace, they must have the fundamentals of reading to be successful," said Robinson. As the grading standard is now more rigorous and the test more challenging, students' scores appeared to have gone down since 2011. However, the third grade is on-point for data predictions of this year's test results, according to the Florida Department of Education.

During that time she has held a variety of of ces which included treasurer, chairperson for the Arts and Crafts, Home Life and Homebound committees. She helped to win six trophies for the parade oats in the Swamp Cabbage Parade. She was named volunteer of the year for three years. Margaret has helped with many projects, which included approximately 90-plus quilts for our raf es and sales as well as many handmade projects for our bazaars and Pet Fests. She also has a bra on tour which was a president’s project. Margaret loves to dress up as Mrs. Santa for our Winter Bazaar and hand out goodies to the kids. She is at the club house early every Tuesday morning to help open up and put on the coffee for the incoming groups. She would be the rst person at the club house on meeting nights to sweep the steps and porch to make the house ready for others. When we have a fund raiser Margaret is always rst in line. Margaret is now 87 and doesn’t show signs of slowing down much. She still makes many things for our club table and has just completed another quilt for us to raf e. In 2011 she won ve ribbons at the district level. This year she topped the 100 mark for a total of 102 ribbons. She has won 29 blue ribbons, 31 red ribbons, 8 yellow ribbons, 19 green ribbons and 15 white ribbons. She plans on putting all of those onto a quilt to show with pride. That is pretty remarkable for a thirty year member but then Margaret is a pretty remarkable woman. The LaBelle Community Woman’s Club is blessed to have her as a member.

by Les MorganIn his 1961 Presidential Inaugural Address, President John F. Kennedy made a v ery signi cant statement to our nation: "Ask not what your country can do for you, but w hat you can do for your country." In the fourth shortest inaugural speech of all time lasting some 13 minutes, he also spoke of "the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God." There are basic entitlements in life. The Declaration of Independence says that our Creator has given us the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. People are certainly entitled to the bene ts they have worked for and their investment in federal programs, like Medicare and Social Security, because it is the people's money. The negative side of entitlements is when people expect others to provide for them without doing anything themselves. That causes what is referred to as "Class Wars." Regarding this division among people, someone sent me a clearly written email that is worth a read by all. It is as follows: "The folks who are getting the free stuff don't like the folks who are paying for the free stuff, because the folks who are paying for the free stuff can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff. And, the folks who are paying for the free stuff want the free stuff to stop. "And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more free stuff on top of the free stuff they are already getting! "Now... the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist. "So... the people who are GETTING the free stuff have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the rst place. "We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free stuff than paying for the free stuff. How do we respond to the legitimate needs of people, such as those mentally, physically or in other ways incapable to meet their own needs, and not be taken advantage of by others who with a "parasitic, entitlement mentality"? The Bible teaches us crucial things about keeping these social issues in balance. First, God empowered us to provide for ourselves, not to live on entitlements. When God created us he gave us this simple command be fruitful (Gen 1:28). Jesus calls us to produce fruit with our lives that honors him. "This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples" (John 15:8). Then he adds, "fruit that will last" (John 15:16). Let's give consideration to those words today. Second, we get out of life what we put into it. Galatians 6:7 says, "we reap what we sow." Motivational speaker and nationally recognized business leader, Zig Ziglar, used to say, "If it's to be, then it's up to me!" Nobody can live your life for you. You are God-created, but you are self-molded. If you don't like what you're getting out of life, then change your investment strategy. Third, there is a key passage in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 that sums up what to any culture should do regarding people who expect people to provide for them. It reads, "If a man doesn't work, neither let him eat." Any questions? I know opportunities for work and career opportunities are more limited than the y used to be. But there are also new opportunities. We have to work smarter, prepare ourselves and go where the opportunities are. If you sow, you will reap. So don't loo k for entitlements; rather, live an empowered life that says, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" (Phil 4:13). God puts within the heart of every person a sense of pride for doing a job to the best of their ability. Dismiss the "Go get your free stuff" and replace that with "God has blessed me with strength, health and determination to work. I will use these gifts in a proper way!"Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church located across the street from City Hal l in LaBelle on Highway 80. 4 Caloosa Belle June 7, 2012Serving LaBelle Since 1922To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

Thanks to our donors and thank you LaBelle for supporting the kids!LHS Red and White GameCowboys of all ages got to strut their stuff on Friday, May 11, during the Annual Red and White game which is a great opportunity for players to get reps and develop their skill set while being closely evaluated for the upcoming season by the coaching staff. There were a number of young bright spots and as we head into the summer program it appears that the Cowboys football team is moving full speed ahead!Cowboys fall to Palmetto Ridge to Conclude Spring PracticeWhile the Bears of Palmetto Ridge did outlast the Cowboys during their spring football nale there were plenty of bright spots for the young Cowboys. With a number of key players our younger players stepped up and lled in with admirable effort while ghting tooth and nail w ith Palmetto Ridge. With four minutes left in the game the Cowboys attempted a crucial eld goal to take the lead, but the kick sailed to the left. On the ensuing play the Bears star running back Ron Johnson (Early University of Florida commit) broke off of the right side and never looked back on a score that proved to be the difference maker.Bright spots:Both the offensive and defensive lines appeared to be more cohesive and physically capable for the Cowboys. This should pay big dividends this season. -A mix of veterans made plays along with newcomers who stood out as well. -Veterans of note-Caleb Rimes, Chris Jasiak, David Andrade, DeVante Ray, Ellis Johnson, Jonathan Rodriguez, Luis Hernandez, Paul Luckey, and Phillip Stansly among others -Noteworthy NewcomersArnoldo Ayala, Bryce Godwin, Jason Arnold, Jesus Karr, Jorge Betancourt, Travis Burchard Thank you for coming out to support the Cowboys and we are looking forward to a great season.

If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a signi cant change to the draft/proposed permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft/proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments led will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led with (received by) the Department’s Agency Clerk in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions led by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be led within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 14 days of publication of the attached Public Notice or within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’s action is based must contain the fol-lowing information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. 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.gov/region4/air/permits/Florida.htm. Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(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.

Thank you so much for your interest in our homeless pets! by Pudge LehmanWhen drilling a small hole stick a post-it note to the wall right under the place you’re going to drill and fold it to make a shelf. It will catch the plaster dust. Before you get into a boat put your keys, license, etc. in a sealable plastic bag and seal it almost closed. Blow air into it and seal the rest of the way. If anything happens it will oat. Don’t waste money on fancy cosmetic bags to carry in your purse. Use a plastic sealable bag. You can see the whole contents without opening it up. Keep a few ice packs in the freezer for emergencies. Put a cup of rubbing alcohol and two cups of water in a heavy duty freezer bag, press as much air out as possible and seal. This remains slushy and not get hard. Daughter Suzy took me to the Black Heritage Festival a few weekends ago. It was so great. I saw a lot of kids I hadn’t seen in years, some in a whole lot of years. Witch’s Brew

LaBelle High School student Tyler Sherrod attended the 2011 Seminar for Tomorrow’s Leaders (S4TL) on the campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland and spoke to the Rotary Club about his experiences while at the seminar recently. Rotary Club President Michelle Brunetto said, the Rotary Club of LaBelle is proud to sponsor at least one S4TL student each year from LaBelle High School. Tyler explained they participate in a week-long S4TL experience and heard from national motivational speakers, Rotarians and others, about the importance of making good decisions and giving back to their community. And, of course, he said they learned the values of Rotary. Lectures, discussions, “rap sessions,” motivational talks and interchanges of ideas/concepts are all a part of challenging S4TL participants to develop leadership abilities as they prepare to enter their senior year of high school. Tyler said students attending the seminar are challenged to utilize all available skill, knowledge, talent, expertise and intelligence toward speci c goals. The ultimate goal of the seminar is for each student to leave with a new selfawareness, ready to not only better use their natural abilities but also to serve others in leadership throughout life. The Rotary Club of LaBelle thanked Tyler for coming back to the Rotary Club to share his seminar experience and talk about the impact the seminar will have in his life.

Mini Health FairsJune 2012 The Hendry and Glades County Health Departments have lifted the advisory for the Caloosahatchee River waters, but they’re still advising people to use caution. The advisory was rst issued in April for the river’s freshwater segments from the Moore Haven Locks extending westward through LaBelle to the Lee County Line, and included the river’s tributaries because of possible sporadic but potentially harmful algae blooms. While the advisory is no longer in place, the conditions are still possible for al g ae growth. Those going in the water to swim or sh, or those letting their pets or livestock go into the water, should still use caution. If the river waters look greenish, off-color, smell different or if you see dead or distressed animals or marine life, local health of cials are recommending folks not to sh in the waters, not to participate in recreation in the waters and do not to drink the water. To report dead or distressed marine and wildlife call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (863) 648-3200.
