Thursday, August 2, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 31 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Hendry County commissioners set the tentative TRIM at 8.6045 mills, an increase of 1.3151 mills over this year, as recommended by County Administrator Judi Kennington-Korf. The 2011-12 millage rate was 7.2894, up from a number of years when the county held the line at 6.5 mills. The action was taken at the Hendry County Commissioners meeting of July 24 in LaBelle. The tentative TRIM had to be set by August 4. Commissioner Darrell Harris moved to set millage at 8.6045 mills. His motion was approved 3-1, with Commissioner Tris Chapman casting the only dissenting vote. Commissioner Janet Taylor was not at the July 24 meeting. At this point in the process, the county’s overall budget total for 2012-13 is expected to be some $63 million, with a de cit of about $2.2 million. Between now and the end o f September when the nal TRIM must be set, commissioners and staff will be concentrating on whittling expenses, trying to make the amount of money coming in match the amount going out. According to staff, most of the de cit has been caused by the Medicaid issue facing the entire Budget tops county agenda by Patty BrantCalioosa Belle Connie Cisnero is not only the Employment Security Representative for the Southwest Florida Works LaBelle of ce, she is living proof of how the program can help. Connie was raised in LaBelle and had been a loan of cer in a cash advance store. Like so many others in the area, she was laid off when the company she worked for failed. She began looking for a job, but knew she wanted to train to become a dental assistant. Southwest Florida Works is in the business of matching up workers with potential jobs and helping make sure they have the skills necessary to land and be successful in those jobs. “I never knew this place existed,” she said of the Southwest Florida Works of ce, until a relative told her about it. She said she rst went to the Immokalee of ce to nd help because she didn’t know there was a center in LaBelle. Theis Kuoman in Immoakee referred her to the LaBelle of ce. That was the beginning of her success story. Connie needed a job and wanted to become a dental assistant. She met with Matt Kindermann of the LaBelle Workfoce ofce, who had helped one of her relatives earlier, and soon found herself in a dental assistant program. Unfortunately, there was another setback in store for her. She graduated last December from the dental program, but found that dentists are reluctant to hire assitants who do not have experience an old story. But she was registered with Employ Florida, submitted her background, updated her information and put in a new resume. Within just a few days she got a call from the Workforce of ce. They needed an employee for the LaBelle of ce. Matt Kindermann was being transferred to Immokalee and they wanted to interview her for his position. Connie was frustrated and upset after all the time and effort she put into her dental assistant training, but Theis felt Connie would New face at SW Florida Works Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantSouthwest Florida Workforce Executive Director Joe Paterno and Workforce Board Member Geri Yoraschek, left, welcomed newcomer Connie Cisnero to the LaBelle satellite of ce.

See Budget — Page 2 See Work — Page 7 See Grades — Page 2 The wait is over for Hendry County schools to get their annual district scoring from the Florida Department of Education. The state has raised the bar this year on academic standards, new assessments that measure students’ progress toward meeting the standards and higher achievement levels for reading, math, science and w riting. A week after releasing the grades, the Department of Education recalculated school grades for districts around the state. Central Elementary in Clewiston is the only Hendry County school affected by the recalculation. Originally Central Elementary receive a “B” grade, but after recalculation it was upgraded to an “A.” This is great news for Central Elementary students, teachers, administration and staff. Former Principal George Duckstein said it is all because of the hard work and dedication of his teachers and entire school staff along with the students, parents, district support, school board, community volunSchool grades decline

He has recently been appointed to the position of District Data Assessment Coordinator where he will w ork with all the schools and principals on data and assessment. The new Principal for Central Elementary this coming school year is Mr. Jose Roquett, w ho formerly served as a Dean at Clewiston Middle, Assistant Principal at Clewiston High and Assistant Principal at West Glades. The Department of Education predicted schools across the state would drop a letter grade this year because of the new higher standards. According to Gerard Robinson, Florida’s Commissioner of Education, the combination of changes to Florida’s accountability system has caused a temporary drop in some school grades. This does not necessarily mean that the teachers or students are not doing as well as they were before. The tougher standards and new scores raised the bar. These changes also make it dif cult to compare scoring from previous years to the current scores. This can best be thought of as a transitional year for school grades. In LaBelle, all three elementary schools dropped one letter grade this year. LaBelle Elementary went from a B to a C; Country Oaks from an A to a B and Upthegrove from an A to a B. Grades for the other two Clewiston elementary schools Westside and Eastside remained the same as last year. Westside C, Eastside B. Both LaBelle and Clewiston Middle Schools went from a C to a D. High schools will not receive their grades until December. Superintendent of Schools Richard Murphy said, “I and the Hendry County School Board will continue to work to provide our schools and teachers the resources they need to ensure that the students of Hendry County are provided the opportunity to be successful in school. Staff will use this year’s school grades data to help plan improvement activities to increase student achievement in all schools across the district.” GradesContinued From Page 1 state. The State of Florida found that its accounting was in error and that many counties owe millions to the fund. The nal millage rate may be reduced after budget talks are nalized, but it may not be set above this tentative rate of 8.6045. Budget workshops are continuing all this w eek.RecreationThe commission is again confronting head on the continuing East Hendry County Rec funding issues. Commissioner Karson Turner confessed to having “heartburn” over this issue. The request by the City of Clewiston for $50,000 from the county this year, expressly excludes golf from being covered. The interlocal agreement with the county covers Eastern county residents not residing in City of Clewiston. Commissioner Turner warned that the $50,000 in the budget at this time may not make it through the budget process. Referring to East Rec nances, he said, “The process is broken. We need to re-do the whole system.” County Commission Chairman Tris Chapman quickly recapped the past two years of East Rec nancial history. The current request from the county is $250,000. Al Perry said there is no bigger fan of youth recreation than him, but he pointed out that the county doesn’t have the kind of money the department is asking for. He added that this is the worst timing possible Commissioner Turner said he would prefer to increase the non-ad valorem assessment for the department. Clewiston City Commissioner Mali Gardner attended the meeting, offering to help get the rec department’s nances back on track. She said that all interested parties need to sit down together to hash out a solution. The question was deferred to budget workshops now in progress. While on the subject of recreation, the commission approved Hendry/LaBelle Rec’s request to use $16,763.59 about half of its available funding to upgrade Bob Mason Park including pavilions.Wayside ParkAn offer to purchase Wayside RV Park was declined. According to County Administrator Kennington-Korf, in July 2011 bids were rejected because they were less than the park’s appraised value of $250,000. The top bid at that time was $225,500. Commissioner Al Perry noted that Wayside Park could be the most valuable property in Clewiston, adding that there is nothing comparable.Probation movingThe State Probation Department is moving to the old DCF building in LaBelle on Cowboy Way with other judicial agencies. The board discussed the need for providing them supplies, which is required for the State Attorney’s Of ce and Public Defender’s Of ce. The items was also written into the probation department lease. After some discussion about the necessity for the county to pay for such expenses, the board nally approved the lease unanimously, feeling it all worked out in the end with the square foot rental amount. BudgetContinued From Page 1 Information for a photo in the July 26 issue of the Caloosa Belle was incorrect. It was actually Sherrie Easterly who won the door prize at the Seacoast Bank networking breakfast July 18. Sherrie is the owner of Caloosa Massage Works. Margie Stephens, also in the photo, operates her business, Permanent Makeup and Skin Rejuvenation by Margie in the same building, called the Caloosa Rejuvenation Center specializing in all types of rejuvenation including the mind, body, soul or facial rejuvenation. They are “partners” for beauty and wellness (but not in the legal sense) and feel they are THE place for spa services in LaBelle, offering therapeutic and relaxation massages as well as professional pharmaceutical grade skin care needs and permanent makeup.

Also to prevent any problems be sure you know where your precinct is located as it may have changed. In 1936 the total hospital bill for having a baby was $19.00 and two years later it had soared to $22.00. I was born in a charity ward during the depression. I nearly pass out at the price today.

Hidden Job Marketby Matt KindermannOnly about 25 percent of jobs are advertised and open for outside applications. It is a striking thought to imagine that for every job that you see, there are three more usually better jobs that you do not know about. These mystery jobs are called the "hidden job market." A common question is how one can crack this hidden job market and get that really good job that you would otherwise never know existed. It is no small wonder that most of these hidden jobs are either available exclusively to existing employees or waiting for a person with a speci c skill set to come along. For instance, a company that outsources its marketing plan might consider promoting an existing employee who can provide the same service in-house, or the company may offer an in-house marketing position to an employee of the outsourced company. To get yourself considered for these hidden opportunities it is important to identify your capabilities to your existing employer, your customers and your vendors. First, be happy to go to work, even if you hate your job. Be the best at what you do, even if it is cleaning the oors. You cannot be considered for advancement until you have mastered the basic duties. Second, position yourself for advancement by letting managers know that you can do more, without sounding like you do not appreciate your current position. Funny as it sounds, there is a thin line between selflessly contributing to company goals and sounding ungrateful. If you are an internal candidate, apply or advancement opportunities but do not get discouraged if you are not selected. Your supervisors will know that you are trying and your name will stay at the top of their memory. If you are an external candidate, make friends with someone at the company. Give them your resume and remind them to keep an ear out for possible opportunities, but be careful to not be overbearing by constantly asking if your inside contact has "heard anything yet."

System Tools Good to use!The most common complaint about computers running the Windows operating system involves system speed. Last week w e discussed how certain hardware upgrades might be helpful in speeding things up. This week, we’ll talk about some related issues that can sometimes be handled with software. The best part is that the software is probably already installed on your hard drive because it is part of most Windows operating systems. From our last article, we now know that starving the operating system for disk space can be a bad thing. While hard drive upgrades are de nitely one way to go, there are times when cleaning up unneeded and unw anted les on the disk may just be all you need. For this, there’s a Microsoft tool called ‘Disk Cleanup’. Microsoft describes this tool pretty thoroughly on its Web site: “The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk by searching your disk for les that you can safely delete. You can choose to delete some or all of the les. Use Disk Cleanup to perform any of the following tasks to free up space on your hard disk:  Remove temporary Internet les.  Remove downloaded program les. For example, ActiveX controls and Java applets that are downloaded from the Internet.  Empty the Recycle Bin.  Remove Windows temporary les.  Remove optional Windows components that you are not using.  Remove installed programs that you no longer use. Unless you’re very savvy and can do some of the disk cleanup yourself, it is a good idea to run the Disk Cleanup tool periodically. Disk fragmentation can seriously affect the speed of your system as well. Files are seldom written from start to nish on your hard drive. Your computer is ‘smart’ enough to nd all sections of a le even though parts of it may be scattered across your disk. This scattering is called fragmentation. The Disk Defragmentation tool, or ‘Defrag’, realigns les on the disk, reducing the amount of ‘scatter’ and therefore reducing the amount of effort the drive must go through to retrieve and use any single le. A good time to run defrag is after deletion of lots of les or any large les (like after running the Disk Cleanup, mentioned above). ‘Defrag’-ing the drive is a good practice. Ho w often you should defrag depends entirely on your computer usage. As always, when in doubt about anything involving your computer system, contact a quali ed technician for help and advice. If you have any questions, send them to computercorner@cprtools.net. Who knows? Your question may be answered in the Caloosa Belle! Until next time, happ y computing from the Computer Corner!This column is presented as a free service to the community and is for information purposes only.

be a “good t” for the LaBelle of ce. Connie came to work at Southwest Florida Works on February 26. Although the position is not in the eld she had envisioned for herself, Connie is very hapy with the way things have turned out. She still gets to help people, which is what she said she always wanted. As a longtime LaBelle resident, she is also familiar with the plight of her clients. “I can relate,” she said. As Geri Yoraschek, employer and board member of the Education Center of Southwest Florida put it, “If you’ve ever looked for a job, you know what it feels like.” So it’s easy for Connie to empathize with the desperation of job hunting. She really does understand. Using the computer also scares some people, Connie pointed out. Now, the state requires anyone signing up for unemployment to do so on the internet. Anyone who doesn’t have access to a computer can do this at the of ce, she said, and she can even show you how to do it. Part of the process of looking for a job includes taking a standard assessment exam, which tests the job candidate on reading, cognitive skills and math, so a prospective employer can gauge their competence level for the job available. Employ Florida is the state’s job bank system for Southwest Florida including all sources. The system can narrow the information down to a speci c eld as small as a couple square miles for those who may have transportation issues. All you have to do is put your resume into the system. Employers can search Employ Florida for interesting resumes, especially those referred by the Southwest Florida Works Center. Geri Yorashek and her husband, Richard, have rst hand experience using Southwest Florida Works to nd employees. In addition to saving money by cutting through unnecessary information about potential workers, the system is also free for businesses. Ms. Yoraschek said because Employ Florida has already taken care of screening candidates for the speci c job your business has open, it can recruit employees without incurring any expense to the employer. “It makes the process easy,” she said, adding that recruiting can be especially expensive for small businesseses like hers because it is so time intensive. When you’re sorting through resumes and interviewing potential workers, you can’t be doing your regular business. Connie said job seekers should pay extra attenion to their resume. A good resume should be short and to the point with good grammar and punctuation. Executive Director Joe Paterno said Southwest Florida Workplace provides classes and resources for job seekers. It’s a place where you can get the training you need for the right job. He said the state has a target occupations list that the local board can add to, so you can get the training you need in a good job with a future. Mr. Paterno said the long range plan is to partner with Edison State College to have classes in the back room or the center. The center can also set up an employer designed training program to cater to a business’ speci c needs, using educational resources from the county, school district, Edison, Education Center of Southwest Florida and other schools. The center also tracks clients for one year after their training is complete. As an employer, Ms. Yoraschek said attitudes have changed on employment. Employers don’t want job hunters to come to their place of business any more. They would rather pick out the resume that seems the best t for them. Going through the Southwest Florida Workforce allows the employer to ll positions with a minimum of expenditure of time and money. Mr. Paterno has a hopeful eye on the future, saying he sees somewhat of an upswing in Southwest Florida’s economy. Southwest Florida Workforce has full service of ces in Port Charlotte, Naples, Clewiston, Immokalee and Fort Myers; and two satelite of ces in LaBelle and Cape Coral. Local companies are invited to call Connie when they need to hire someone, using their database of employees in the area to match up with an employer. They can also set up on the job training and internships. Check out their Web site at www.sw works.org for their many classes and programs. If, as Connie feels, you are “not aware of what we do here,” you can contact Connie by email at ccisnero@sw works.org, phone at 675-1412 or come in to the of ce at at 921 Anvil Circle, off Cowboy Way and across from Fort Knox Storage. Her success stories give Connie plenty of satisfaction. She recalls one man who came in every day doing job searches, and a woman who had been looking for work for three months and was nally referred to the State Attorney’s Of ce. Finding a job takes a positive attitude and persistence, but if you’re serious, either have or acquire some skills, you will be able to say with the pride one man did, “I’m not unemployed any more!” MALDONADO Political Advertisement Paid for and approved by Steven Maldonado, Democrat for Sheriff NEW AGE NEW VISION VOTE ON AUGUST 14TH, 2012 E E SheriffHendry CountyCriminal Law Serial Proling Taser Instructor Organized Crime S.W.A.T.

This is the 13th horse with EEEV infection with onset during 2012. The Glades County Health Department encourages everyone to take basic precautions to help limit exposure to mosquitoes. You should: Consult with your veterinarian on getting your horses vaccinated for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile V irus (WNV). Avoiding mosquito bites is the best way to prevent disease. Protect yourself against mosquito-borne diseases by remembering to "Drain and Cover:" Drain standing water to stop mosquitoes from living and multiplying around home or business. Drain water from garbage cans, or other containers where water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, and other items not being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pet's water bowls once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don't accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools and keep them appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover the skin to protect from mosquito bites and diseases mosquitoes carry. Clothing Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and long-sleeves. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label, especially those with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other EPA-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. L Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. Mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of 3 years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than 2 months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent rst to their own hands and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly tor clothing. Glades horse has mosquito-transmitted virus

What she does, is help people look and feel better about themselves. Her new salon, The Hair Studio, is where she makes it happen. Antonia learned her trade at Sun State A cademy in Fort Myers and has been doing hair since 2004. Ever since she graduated from there she has been working in LaBelle as a hairdresser.

The Hair Studio is a full service hair salon (no nails, please), providing highlights, full service waxing, cuts, styles, perms, up-dos and makeup. She keeps up to date with the changing world of hair styling. Although she never thought she wanted to open her own salon, Antonia said she has found that everything has fallen into place. She credits the smooth transition from stylist to stylist/owner with help from her family, her clients and, of course, God, and appreciates all the support she’s been receiving. Antonia loves to see the effect her work has on clients results that make her customers feel special and give them a lift. She said she also tries to understand the impact her work might have on customers how it can change their whole day their whole perspective. In addition, Antonia understands the struggle everyone is going through during these times, and her prices re ect it. She believes strongly in keeping business in LaBelle. She sees no need to go to Fort Myers to have your hair done when you can stay here and get good service at less expense. She also believes in helping her community. She is especially committed to the ght against breast cancer, participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and Lucy’s Angels. She did pink hair extensions for Lucy’s Angels this past year with proceeds going to that group. She also walked with some of her clients in the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure event.

Recently Drug Free Hendry County Staff discovered that many residents believe that most Hendry County Teens drink, some even suggesting that 90 percent of our teens drink and they must lie on our surveys. Other thoughts are that kids drink because they are bored. We’d like to address these misperceptions. First, let’s look at the numbers At the end of the school year there were 1,868 teens enrolled in high school in Hendry County. That means that in order for “most” of them to be drinking, 1,681 would have had to get their hands on alcohol during a weekend in the past 30 days. That gure alone is enough to make you rethink the statement “everyone drinks”. As for teens lying on surveys, that’s just plain silly. First, research shows that most people around the world are honest on anonymous surveys. Second, knowing what we know about the teen brain, they would be more likely to lie about their negative behavior, not their positive non-drinking behaviors! The fact is however, our annual survey actually asks students, “Did you tell the truth?” the overwhelming majority of them say yes. Additionally, this is the fourth year we’ve given the same survey that’s four graduating classes that have all said about the same thing on this survey. It’s one thing to think that teens might lie, but it’s another to really believe that they would be lying the exact same way every year over four graduating classes. Let’s give our teens a break why is it so hard for us to believe that the y make healthy decisions and that most o f them are doing the right thing? The surveys that we use for our dat a were completed here in Hendry County. Students from LaBelle High School, LaBelle Middle School, Clewiston High School, and Clewiston Middle School complete 2 surveys related to underage drinking. The Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey (FYSAS) is completed every two years in nearly every county in the State. The evaluation is professionally done by well-educated statisticians, mathematicians, and evaluators. The Teen Social Norms Survey has been done each year in select counties throughout the state, including Hendry and Glades Counties. We have been administering it to students since 2008. This survey is evaluated by Dr. Greg Barker of Northern Illinois University. There are questions built into both surveys to invalidate the inconsistent responders or liars. In fact, many students we talk to also feel many students lie on the survey but they themselves say they don’t. I have found a couple of students who admitted they lied, out of the hundreds I’ve spoken to. Most students tell the truth – especially since it is a totally anonymous survey. NOW for the statistics. Both surveys are pretty consistent across all responses. Concerning alcohol THE 2010 FYSAS indicates that 33.3 percent of our high school teens have used alcohol in the past 30 days. That is almost ve percent lower than the state average. It also indicates that 15.8 percent of students are binge drinkers – meaning they drink ve or more drinks in a row. While it still indicates that most teens don’t drink it raises a ag since about half of those drinkers are binge drinking – which is extremely dangerous. The 2010 TEEN NORMS Survey indicates that 32 percent of Hendry County high school students report “they have had at least one drink of alcohol in the past 30 days”. Yet when asked about their peers those same students believe that 81percent participated in the aforementioned behavior. This means that most (68 percent) of our teens are making good decisions, despite popular opinion It is highly unlikely and probably impossible for any county to have a 90percent underage drinking rate. There are actually counties in the state that have a higher drinking rate than us – think college towns and spring break communities. Please also note that lifetime use and regular use are different and have different rates. Survey says: Most teens don’t drink Public Notice IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TWENTIETH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HENDRY COUNTY FLORIDA CIVIL DIVISION CASE NO. 09-1160-CA PREMIER AMERICAN BANK, N.A., d/b/a FLORIDA COMMUNITY BANK, a Florida corporation, Plaintiff, vs. JAMES M.
