Thursday, July 5, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 27 ORANGE, FL – The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) presented Hendry Count y Commissioner Al Perry with the Certi ed County Commissioner (CCC) designation following his completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the association. Commissioner Perry received the designation with more than 30 other count y commissioners during an awards ceremon y held at the FAC Annual Conference in Orange County. CCC certi cation is not a requirement to serve as a county commissioner in Florida. However, county commissioners may voluntarily enroll in the program and complete a series of courses totaling 42 hours. The coursework is designed to provide information and enhance skills relevant to a comPerry earns designation The well being of any area is inextricably linked to government, from local to national. The state is a vital part of this chain and for Hendry and northeastern Collier counties including Immokalee and Golden Gate Estates. That means having a local champion in Tallahassee. Born and raised in Immokalee, Pam Brown has been a member of this community all her adult life, an activist who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Pam is running for representative of Florida House District 80 with No Party Af liation (NPA). Redistricting has taken the old Florida House District 77 and reformulated it into District 80. As a lifelong area resident and member of an Immokalee pioneer family, she feels she has a strong connection to this area, with an understanding of the folks who have built this area. She has served on the Immokalee Water & Sewer District board for 14 years; on the Lake Trafford Task Force; Collier County Museum Board and Immokalee Chamber of Commerce, Currently she serves as chairman of the Immokalee Fire Board and of the Collier Fire Service Steering Committee. She is also a cofounder and serving president of the Immokalee Area Civic Association. She says she’s ready to start helping her area neighbors at the state level and looks forward to making a difference in three areas she designates as ACE: Agriculture, Commerce and Education. Bringing a “fresh set of eyes” to the table, is one of her strong points, she feels. The daughter of Percy Brown community leader, farmer and rancher she fervently believes in keeping District 80 entrenched in agriculture while at the same time leveraging our traditional lifeline to additional jobs in commerce.

The voluntary program provides information and skills necessary to serve the county's people. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their June 28 meeting the Hendry County commissioners agreed to allow County Attorney Mark Lapp to negotiate the sale of A irglades Airport with a one time lump sum payment going to the county. Existing tenants will continue their leases as they have while new tenants will come under the new agreement. It could take as much as ve y ears to close the sale, Mr. Lapp told the board. In the meantime the county will continue to manage part of the airport.Shovel readyCounty Engineer Shane Parker reported that he has 25 projects that would be eligible for federal funding if it should become available. These shovel-ready projects include drainage, roads and sidew alk improvements. The board directed Mr. Parker to line up similar projects after the county lost possible funding by not having appropriate projects ready.

One year, four months and 17 days before Abraham Lincoln addressed a war-weary crowd at the dedication of a cemetery in Gettysburg, the President signed legislation that made an immediate and everlasting impact on the way people experience their lives. The Morrill Act established the landgrant university system and essentially initiated what could be de ned as "The Education Revolution" that thrives to this day. July 2, 2012, was the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Morrill Act, which created the land grant university system, of which the University of Florida is a part. This public investment in higher education has made a signi cant difference in the quality of life for Floridians. Not only did it allow for the education of those who previously had little access to higher learning, but it created a system in which university faculty and researchers share their knowledge and discoveries with the public for the betterment of Florida's communities and economy. When President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act in July 1862, he demonstrated remarkable foresight, particularly considering the country was in the midst of the Civil War. Lincoln realized the importance of higher education and made Representative Justin Morrill's dream a reality. The passage of the Morrill Act in 1862 provided thousands of Americans access to knowledge and a teaching environment the y most likely never would have experienced. That cause was furthered by the Second Morrill Act in 1890, which provided funding to institutions for black students. A century and a half later, America's 74 land-grant universities continue to connect students with the nest faculty and resources the country has to offer. The University o f Florida is proud to be a leading member o f that group. UF offers more than 100 undergraduate degrees and more than 200 graduate degrees. Our accessibility can also be measured in our affordability. 2012 marks the seventh year in a row that the Universit y of Florida was named the second-best value in public colleges in the U.S. by Kiplinger's Personal Finance. One of only six universities in the countr y with colleges of law, medicine, agriculture and veterinary medicine on one central campus, as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees available via distance and online learning, the University of Florida exempli es the vision of the Morrill Act. UF is also one of only 17 universities in the country to share the distinction of land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant status. Throughout its history as a land-grant university, UF has achieved a great number of successes while ful lling our mission to teach, research and provide service. The quality of our education has produced multiple Nobel Prize winners, as well as U.S. senators, U.S. representatives, state governors, U.S. ambassadors, college presidents and countless leaders of major companies and institutions, from MTV to the United States Marine Corps. Research has resulted in breakthrough products that have changed the playing eld. In one case, quite literally: Gatorade¨. Further evidence is the University o f Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS), which has earned the No. 1 ranking in Agricultural R&D from the National Science Foundation. With nearl y It all began in 1962. Fast forward 50 years and more than 35,000 graduates later, Edison State College continues to be a Southwest Florida leader in higher education.

She wants to study options for the proposed Heartland Express what would it bring to this area? To her mind, this area's constituents sorely need a representative that treasures their past, understands their present and w ill work for the future. Pam feels education is a "key component" in our collective future but the system is in serious need of attention. At present, she feels, only our educators are being held liable for providing a quality education to our children. She takes issue with the fact that our schools' effectiveness is being evaluated solely on the basis of state assessment tests. The big powerhouses of Tallahassee do not intimidate this local lady. With local roots that go back to the 1880s, taking on the tough ght is in her blood. Her grandfather, Bill Brown, set up the rst trading post doing business with the Seminoles at Big Cypress Brown's Boat Landing, she said. After that, he opened a store in Immokalee. Recently she learned that her grandmother's family founded a town called Jernigan a place we now know as Orlando. In Collier County she has championed a different perspective on several dif cult issues to the board of county commissioners. She prides herself on an open mind, making sure she does her homework and then looks a an issue from all angles before she makes up her mind where she stands. "First do the research," she said, "then get to work." Rural Collier and Hendry need a voice in Tallahassee and Pam hopes to become the individual District 80 constituents can rally around. Pam studied at USF and Georgia Southern. With 28 years experience in small business running her own insurance agency for 15 years as well as 13 with her own catering and canning business, she feels she has the background to help structure a sound local economy. She said she would see her duty as a representative of the people of District 80 not of herself or special interests. She said she believes in keeping locals apprised of the issues that affect them and welcomes constituents to contact her with new perspectives and issues. missioner's duties and responsibilities as an elected of cial. "This certi cation allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities," said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. "The 329 graduates of this program is a testament to the importance of this curriculum to Florida's public servants and our counties." The CCC program coursework covers a variety of topics, such as county government roles and responsibilities, county government structure and authority, nancial management, ethics and sunshine law, negotiation skills, economic development and effective communication. Completion of all coursework averages 12 to 18 months. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension sponsors this program.

The pork steak dinner will start immediately following the ceremonies at the American Legion Post 130, LaBelle. Future improvements to the park include a commemorative plaque that explains how the park was started and how the bene t brought a community together in one of its saddest moments. The LaBelle Veterans Park Committee would like to thank the many people that have helped build this special place, a place to remember and honor those who have sacri ced so much, and thos who continue to work so hard for the freedom that is so uniquely American.

As the state's leading advocate for anonymous crime reporting programs, FACS has developed methods to facilitate crime reporting while maintaining caller anonymity. "There are hundreds of unsolved cases in Florida. With this partnership with Crime Stoppers, the State Attorney General's of ce and FDLE, we are hoping to close as many of those cases as possible," said DC Secretary Ken Tucker. "There are victims in many of these unsolved crimes who are still waiting for justice. We want to help them by solving these cases." The Department of Corrections intends to take advantage of Crime Stopper expertise by providing: An anonymous tip-line for the Department's inmate population to report information. Training on the program for inmates w hen they rst enter the prison system. Informational posters on bulletin boards in inmate housing units and in community corrections of ces. The images and names of Florida's ve most wanted fugitives and ve most wanted absconders, (people on probation who have run away) will also be advertised on billboards and other media.

Job Fairsby Matt KindermannNow is time to start planning for the fall employment drive that begins around August in conjunction with the school year, and the tourism and farming industry seasons. Job fairs can be found advertised in newspapers, local business magazines and at the social service agencies. One source for non-collegiate job fairs is www.southwest oridaemployment.com/fair. Most colleges in the area organize at least one job fair each year and post upcoming employment events on their Web sites under the student services section. The intention of the colleges is to help their alumni nd jobs, although, these events are generally still open to the public. To prepare for a job fair, try to get a list of employers that will be on-site and tailor some of your resumes for those you really want to see. Ensure you have ample copies of your resume, dress in business professional, and expect to spend a lot of time waiting in lines. Polish your 45 second elevator speech and smile at everyone. Your only goal at a job fair is to secure a followup interview. So, don't go overboard by trying to land a job with every recruiter because they'll notice you at the next booth over telling the next guy how much you want to work there. Make an appointment with a Career Development Representative at your local workforce of ce for no-fee, one-on-one review of your resume prior to the event. If you feel you are capable of developing your own resume, try to stay away from the templates on the word processing software. Everyone uses those and you want your resume to look unique. Microsoft Of ce is now available for under $12 for government and non-pro t employees. To get a one-time discounted download of Of ce 2010, go to www.microsofthup.com and enter your work email address. If Microsoft determines your work e-mail address to fall under a government or non-pro t entity, it will send you a program code to use in purchasing the discounted software. Ensure the computer you download the software to is one that you will use for a while as this software usually costs around $100 and cannot be transferred from one computer to another. Southwest Florida Works is the regional state workforce board for Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties. 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." Post of ce woesBesides not having a stamp vending machine, the Post Of ce has been neglecting the potholes at the entrance to the parking area on the west side now for countless years. Are they getting the right contractor for the money we spend with the Post Of ce? Why, after all these years of them collecting the fees from the public won't they just repave the parking lot? I have an alternative solution. Everyone that has had front end damage i.e. sliced tires, damaged tie-rods, struts and front end alignment on their vehicles get all their bills together and take them to the Caloosa Belle for them to save. Then in about a month any attorney can go collect this information and le a class action lawsuit! Perhaps this will get the Post Of ce's attention!Political signsYou see them on the sides of the road, in yards, pastures, even billboards. These are political candidate signs. But one area that is decisively lacking in signs is Port LaBelle on the Hendry County side. This is due to the fact that approximately a week ago the candidates were informed that there was a complaint that they should be removed from the yards of those who own and rent in the area. Because of this, most of the signs were removed and explanations given to those who were supporting the candidates. Even though this is the case, not all the signs were removed as per the email sent out by the Homeowner's Association for Port LaBelle. If one were to drive through the E. Sun ower Circle area they would see one sign still standing in the yard of a homeowner. It is not that it is unfair to the candidates that complied as they were asked to comply, but instead it is the fact that one candidate did not comply at all to the request to remove all political signs that had been sent out. Was it that there is a conspiracy within the Homeowner's Association to support a particular candidate and using their powers to this extent, or is it just an oversight and the candidate did not remove their signs. Or is it that the candidate believes that they are above the others. No matter the reasoning behind the lac k of removing the sign, this cannot be allowed. If one will keep their signs up, then the rest should be allowed to return the signs to those that have supported the candidates. It needs to be said that no-one candidate should be above the others. I will not name names but if this is not taken care of then perhaps it is time to start other means to get fair results for the candidates that complied with what was requested of them. Speak Out Great adventureAfter returning from our sailing tour we are left with many memories of the Caribbean, its incredible people and fellow sailors. Some of our best memories are of the people who were helped by the clothing, band instruments and school supplies donated by great folks here in LaBelle. We are so pleased with your generosity. We're headed off again, this time on a land journey to the Western states and Canada. We will be returning to LaBelle later, then off again on a sailing trip in the fall. Again, we appreciate the donations folks made. Know they made a difference in the lives of a lot of people in very dif cult circumstances. John and Kathy Potts S/V Hana Hou Sitka, Alaska Thank You Matt Kindermann 300 different crops produced throughout the state, Florida -the nation's leader in that category -faces a more diverse set of challenges. UF/IFAS has risen to the occasion and embarked on research initiatives to meet those challenges. Dedicated to developing knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources and the life sciences, UF/IFAS is also charged with the responsibility of making that information accessible throughout the state. To that end, each of Florida's 67 counties is served by a dedicated UF/IFAS of ce. This was made possible by the 1914 SmithLever Act that provided federal support for land-grant institutions to offer educational programs through cooperative extension efforts. For a century and a half, in thousands of ways, big and small, the University of Florida has helped make Florida a great place to live, work and play through its core mission of teaching, research, and outreach, and it has played a vital role in helping the United States produce the safest and most plentiful food supply on earth. As we move into a period of continued budget cuts and expectations to do more with less, please help spread the word about UF/IFAS Extension, 4-H, the services we provide, and the great people that work at UF.

Obituaries by Pat DobbinsMillions of lightning ashes happen each year and lightning can claim one or two victims at a time. Lightning strikes usually does not usually c ause mass destruction of property, so it may not be considered as a "highrisk" to some people, HOWEVER, lightning has killed over almost 100 people in the last few years! Did you know that lightning can strike as far as 10 miles from the area where it's raining? That's about the same distance that you can hear thunder. So if you can hear the thunder, that means you are within striking distance! Most lightning deaths or injuries happen in the summer. School is out for summer, so take time now to educate your family on lightning safety! "When lightning roars go indoors!" There are some indoor dangers to remember as well. Stay off of corded phones and computers during lightning. If a person is struck by lightning, please call 911 and get medical care immediately. Heart irregularities, cardiac arrest, nerve damage and burns are common when someone gets struck by lightning. However, with proper treatment, including CPR if necessary, most victims survive a lightning strike. You are in no danger helping a lightning victim. The charge will not affect you. Please stay safe this summer and remember: "When Lightning Roars, Go Indoors!" Summer: Time to exercise good lightning safety habits Patricia Dobbins

by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It seems the dif cult times never stop. Every time one thing goes right, something else goes wrong. The same holds true for individuals, families, businesses and nonpro ts. For three years Jay Lawrence has been keeping his charity, Hands Up, a oat as best he can using the limited resources available resources that are being stretched further almost daily. Part of the Hands Up charity is the Stingray football team. Although the deal for the Stingrays to play at Immokalee High School stadium fell through, the football dream in Immokalee never dies and that door has not closed completely, Jay said. Proceeds from the team go toward Hands Up, along with other donations. The group provides equipment and supplies not covered by insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. for disabled individuals who cannot afford these necessities. Often, they are the means by which they can live a ful lling life. When requests for help are received through the group's Web site, Hands Up volunteers comb through them, looking for the most dire needs. The 501 c 3 group services Southwest Florida including Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee counties. Himself wheelchair-bound since a traf c accident in 1996, Jay is not one to give up on a dream. When he got his prognosis after his crash he'd never walk again he raised his right arm to indicate that he wasn't going to take the doctor's decision. In 2007, he said he took a part time sales position with the Florida Stingrays in Fort Myers. After only four months he was promoted to VP of Operations. Today he has an active and ful lling life with the Storm, Hands Up, a wife and daughter. That wheelchair doesn't seem to slow him down at all. He is bringing that same energy and cando attitude that he applied to his physical setbacks to his charity. Jay knows rst hand what having a prosthesis or a wheelchair means to those in need. He understands how hard it is to get these things into the hands of the people who need them. Often they don't have an y idea where to go. The charity is personal for Jay. In fact, he said he has a "garage full of stuff" equipment that can be just exactly what someone needs to be able to live their life more comfortably; to do what they need to do on a daily basis. His dream is to expand nationally and allow others to start their own chapter. He believes this will be a great opportunity for other disabled people, and especiall y wants to include disabled veterans. Jay is using his experience with the football world and his work in the private sector to help support his real passion, Hands Up and the work it does for the disabled.

by Barbara OehlbeckHow many times have most of us heard the statement, “I’m going to write a book?” A las, mostly this is an empty statement formost people, yet there are exceptions. This is one of them. “Bitter Secrets” by Patty Brant, editor of the Caloosa Belle, is a just-out book, the result of Patty’s determination. While this is Patty’s rst book, the sequel is well under w ay. “Bitter Secrets” tells the ctional tale of Molly Martindale, an orphan who came to the small, very southern town of “Oxbow” in South Central Florida, to live with a great aunt she barely knew. The loss of her parents and uprooting from her home in western Pennsylvania was w renching, but before long “Oxbow” became Molly’s town. Ms. Brant’s characters are so real the reader all but talks back to them. She deftly paints a realistic picture of Oxbow with its share of good ‘n bad and enough mystery to make excitement run high. With every passing day Molly begins to w eave together the story of the lost Parker family, who left Oxbow in 1943 under some v ery dubious circumstances. Back in 1983, nobody in Oxbow will talk about the family, in fact all traces of their existence have been erased. Molly’s curiosity leads her to Georgia, w here it is said the family was bound, and w here she struggles to reveal more bits of the whole story. Molly learned in a hurry that all the pieces of the puzzle didn’t t, but not being the giving-up kind she kept digging. When fate led her steps to cross with a w heelchair-bound Vietnam veteran doors began to open that she’d never known to exist. When an old, worn diary words of a lonely 13-year-old girl gone 40 years surfaced, Molly could not erase its images from her mind. Throughout the book Molly moves cautiously from clue to clue guided in part by cold, misty visages that apparently only she is aware of. With each visitaion Molly’s terror ramps up, pushing her to nd answers to the question she cannot evade. What really happened to the Parker family? Ms. Brant has been the editor of the Caloosa Belle since 1991. “Bitter Secrets” has earned a spot as iUniv erse’s Editor’s Choice for 2012. This book is currently available locally at the Caloosa Belle newspaper, where Patty is happy to autography copies, and at the LaBeIle Chamber of Commerce. It’s also available at Barnes & Noble, Books A Million and Amazon.com in paperback, hard back and e-book versions. A book signing for “Bitter Secrets” will be held Tuesday, July 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the LaBelle Heritage Museum, 360 N. Bridge Street. The public is cordially invited.
