Thursday, September 6, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No.36 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The August 28 county commission meeting brought questions about the possible sale of Airglades A irport to the fore. Airglades was one of only ve original airports chosen as part of a federal privatization pilot program. According to the FAA, its Airport Privatization Pilot Program is intended as a means of generating access to various sources of private capital for airport improvement and development. Private companies may own, manage, lease and develop public airports. A sponsor may be exempt from certain federal requirements that could otherwise make privatization impractical. The airport owner or lease holder may be exempt from repayment of federal grants, return of property acquired with federal assistance and the use of proceeds from the airport's sale or lease to be used by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle With budget considerations i n full swing, Hendry County Emergency Medical Service stands to lose an ambulance and six positions, if the department has to cut its budget by the requested ve percent. Hendry County EMS Operations Chief Donna Aiken said the prospect is "concerning." If tha t happens, she said EMS will have to shift units to cover the count y adequately. Ultimately, the outcome is unknown. It could be a dramatic problem for a patient with a critical medical issue; an inconvenience for someone with a not-so-critical problem. The only part of the equatio n that is really predictable, Ms. Aiken said, is the affect on coverage. "We believe we need all ve units," she continued. "If we only have four we will have to "layer strategy" to mitigate the situation." At this time, three ambulance units are stationed in LaBelle; two in Clewiston. The majorit y of medical emergency calls are from the LaBelle area, Ms. Aike n Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantNew homeABOVE: Bocelli, is the newest arrival at Animal Rescue.

One of the longest-running animal shelters in the area has moved to new digs. Animal Rescue, Inc., has relocated from North Bridge to its new home at 463 E. Lincoln Avenue, LaBelle. “What a relief,” said shelter owner Diane Sheppard. “The old place ooded the dog kennels every time it rained hard. The new facility stayed dry as a bone during Isaac.” About 25 dogs in kennels and 20 cats in the cat room are adjusting to the shelter on Lincoln. But there is more work to be done to complete the shelter facility. Because it’s the rainy season, the outside walls of the building have to be prepped and siding put on soon or else the treated wood will deteriorate. The washer and dryer need to be installed. Pipes for water and drainage have to be run. Damaged gates on the dog stalls need to be replaced. Diane said they also need ll to help alleviate standing water issues. Animal Rescue, Inc., just moved in to this new facility several weeks ago and takes care of these animals with only two full time employees, Diane Shepherd and Angela Biles. Supporters and volunteers Christine Bochicechio, Antonia Rafalsky and special friend Addison Austin, provide untold assistance. The new facility is located in an industrial zoned area. Diane is asking for volunteers to help with these projects. If you love animals and want to help make the new shelter even better for them, please contact Diane at 863/234-1509 or Angel at 863/342-2076. If you can’t donate time and energy, please send a charitable donation to Animal Rescue Inc., PO Box 2441, LaBelle, Florid a 33975. Animal Rescue moves NOTICE OF MEETING 2012 HENDRY COUNTY VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARDPLEASE BE ADVISED that pursuant to Chapter 194, Florida Statutes, the HENDRY COUNTY VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARD (VAB) will convene its Organizational Meeting on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. in the Commission Chambers at the Hendry County Courthouse, 25 East Hickpochee Avenue, LaBelle, Florida, for the purpose of considering matters pursuant to the requirements of Florida Statutes, Chapter 194 and other items as may be appropriate or timely. Petitions, complaints and appeals “led with the VAB will be referred to hearings conducted by Special Magistrates at the Hendry County Courthouse; or at other designated locations as needed. This meeting is open to the public, and interested citizens are invited to attend. No decisions concerning Special Magistrate recommendations will be made by the Board at the meeting. Anyone who appeals a decision made by the VAB will need a record of the proceedings and for such purpose may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, including the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is based. The VAB may discuss other related issues in addition to the above matters at the suggestion or request of the Chairman or members prior to or during the meeting. Barbara S. Butler, Clerk Hendry County Value Adjustment Board 2 Caloosa Belle September 6, 2012exclusively for airport purposes. The commission is looking to Airglades A irport to become the anchor of a regional economic hub, possibly in conjunction w ith another facility planned for the Glades County area. Last June the commissioners learned about the application for a grant to upgrade A irglades’ runway. The grant will provide funding for a runw ay coating to strengthen the surface for use by jet aircraft. It will also help pave the way for the eventual sale of the airport The county foresees a bene t of both jobs and pro ts from selling jet fuel to the company. Airglades International Airport (AIA) is the name of the Limited Liability Company (LLC) which is considering buying the airport from the county. LaBelle resident Ernie Redish demanded the county seek an appraisal and bids to sell A irglades. However, Commissioner Karson Turner gave a synopsis of the situation, saying the bidding process would not be practical for this situation since no one else has expressed an interest in purchasing the airport up to this time. He said a new entity called AIA, which includes USSC, Hilliards and Cargo Fresh, is interested in aquiring Airglades as a private enterprise. Commissioner Turner moved that theyclose the deal. It was seconded by Commissioner Darrell Harris and passed 4-0. As an employee of USSC, Commissioner Chapman abstained. The county is responsible for half of an additional $40,000 in legal work. Anything over that amount would be the county’s responsibility alone. Hendry County Economic Development Director Gregg Gillman explained that, with “multipliers,” the deal should result in some 3,000 additional jobs for Hendry County residents. Commissioner Janet Taylor expressed the need to identify the skills required for local residents to obtain jobs so area post secondary schools can make appropriate classes available. The jobs expected to be produced will be logistic-oriented.BudgetThe board set Tuesday, September 11 as the rst public hearing on the 2012-13 budget. The nal will be Septembre 25.EmergencyThe board terminated the local state of emergency for Tropical Storm Isaac as of 8 p.m. Monday, August 27. Commissioner Tris Chapman reported that the Governor’s Of ce called asking how the county fared. He said he told them Hendry received a lot of rain, mostly on the east side bad for a county in which 50 precent of it residents earn their living in agriculture. said. Also, there is no hospital here as in Clewiston and the Clewiston EMS station is located more centrally. All that translates into more lengthy transports for LaBelle ambulances. In addition, one of the Clewiston units remains on standby in Montura from 9-6. Ms. Aiken said the EMS has cut its budget in every possible way. “There is nothing left but an ambulance and personnel,” she commented. In past years the department began using six to eight part timers to help control salaries. Hendry County EMS has a large area to cover, including a section of the county only accessible through Immokalee in Collier County. Although Hendry Correctional Insitition has closed there are still occasions w hen an ambulance is needed down there. Collier County never transported for Hendry, but they would stabilize a patient till Hendry County got there. No more. That means, if a call comes in from that area some 40-45 minutes away wait times could increase for other patients, depending on what else is going on at that time. Within the city of LaBelle, the average response time is 4-5 minutes. In 2011 Hendry County ambulance teams handled 5,300 calls throughout the county. Ms Aiken said that, actually, the overall number of calls were reduced recently because a private company now handles HRMC interfacility transports. However, actual transport calls have increased a total of six percent: two percent for LaBelle; four percent for Clewiston. Five of the units are on duty 24/7. If the county implents the proposed budget, the sixth ambulance will be used as a spare. With an aging eet, some ambulances are over ten years old and have over 300,000 miles on them. The Hendry County Professional Paramdics and EMT Local 4520, part of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) is unhappy with the proposal. If you’d like to learn more about its position check out their page on Facebook. For the EMTs and paramedics themselves it’s personal. They feel they cannot afford to lose personnel. not just because losing your job in this economy is dif cult. The larger issue, they say, is that they feel it will just leave the county’s residents too vulnerable. Glades County does have a mutual aid agreement with Hendry County, but only has two ambulances. Being counted on to answer calls in Hendry County could leave them short. LaBelle Fire Department does have rst responders who can help in emrrgencies, but they have no advanced medical skills and equipment. In addition, every re ghter gets $25 per call they answer. If they had to take up the slack for EMS, that cost would rise for the re department. The rst public hearing on the budget will be Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Clewiston with the nal hearing Tuesday, Sept. 25 in LaBelle. Something else concerning EMS personnel: employees work 24 hours on, 48 off. So, if there is a particularly busy shift, someone is out on the next shift and no part timers are available to ll in, someone is held over to cover overtired and in a stressful position.

Take advantage of our vision sceening and Back-To-School Eyewear Special. Call for Details! Serving the area for over 30 years! 3 Caloosa Belle September 6, 2012 The rst Monday in September is Labor Day and for over 100 years, there is still some doubt as to who rst proposed the holiday for workers. Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the A merican Federation of Labor, was rst in suggesting a day to honor those "who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold." But Peter McGuire's place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International A ssociation of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic. Now is a good time to observe how the w orkforce of today is so vastly different from the workforce of the twentieth century. One of the biggest trends is the evolution away from a life-long relationship between business and the American worker. From the business view point employers needs change due to technology, innovation, globalization, reorganization, and consolidation. The youngest members of America's labor force tend to have a different perspective from other generations on the employer/ employee relationship with a willingness to change positions to learn more skills, diversify their experience, remain competitive in the labor market and while doing so, place a high importance on the need for balance w ithin their professional and personal lives. Another major change is the skill set needed by businesses from days passed to now. To meet these needs we see the introduction of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum into elementary and middle schools. Incorporating apprenticeships and on-the-job training has become vital for today's workforce development. Lifelong learning will result in the most marketable and thus economically secure American Workforce and the future is bright for those who are willing to invested their time and money in improving their skills, hoping to capitalize on the economic recovery. Although it is currently an employer's market, businesses understand the importance to retention, pro tability and ef ciency lies in continually improving the skill sets of their existing labor force. As we continue to move toward economic recovery, some of our recent post-secondary training graduates are poised and eager to return to work. Businesses may get a head start in their recovery by sponsoring a recent graduate in an internship. Funds exist to pay the graduate and allow the business to train a potential new employee to be a productive member of their workforce. These internships sponsored through Southwest Florida Works provide a 520-hour paid work experience for graduates. The business has the opportunity to teach and mentor the graduate to their way of doing business and at the end of thirteen weeks, it is hoped that business has developed the person to be a valuable addition to the company and thus hires the individual. Another option to assist businesses and job seekers is on-the-job training. All too often the business community is looking for a perfect t and thus jobs go un lled for lengthy periods of time. But businesses have the opportunity to offset the cost of hiring someone who has some of the skills but not all of the skills needed to be a productive member of their workforce. By reimbursing a business 50-90 percent of the new employees' wages while training a new hire, Southwest Florida Works hopes to encourage more businesses to hire sooner rather than later and thus help more of Southwest Florida's workforce celebrate this and future Labor Days. For information regarding these programs please contact Peg Elmore (239) 9318200 Ext: 11126 or Matt Kindermann (239) 225-2500 Ext: 15250 Labor Day: Then and Now On August 29, 2012, at approximately 8:30pm, Hendry County Deputies received a call reporting a possible shooting. When Deputies arrived in the area of Nobles Road and Chickasaw Avenue, they found two men lying on the west side of the roadway. Deputies were advised by an interpreter that 50-year-old Rogelio D. Beltran of LaBelle reported that he and his friend were walking down the road when another man walked out from behind some trailers and pointed a gun at them. Beltran stated that he was struck in the back of the head with the handgun and that his friend had been shot in the head. EMS personnel arrived on scene and transported Beltran to an area hospital for treatment. The second, unidenti ed, victim was airlifted to a nearby trauma center. It was later determined that the unidenti ed man did not sustain a gunshot wound but was struck in the back of the head. Hendry County Investigators are unclear as to the motive and are continuing to look into the incident. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce, Criminal Investigative Division at 863-6745600. Two men attacked from behind, left in road On August 29, 2012, between 9:57 p.m. and 11 p.m., Hendry County Deputies responded to reports of two structure res in the Pioneer Plantation area. At 9:57 p.m., Hendry County Deputies responded to the 3055 12th Street, Pioneer, regarding a trailer re. When deputies arrived on scene they found the double wide mobile home fully engulfed in ames. Pioneer Fire Department arrived on scene and was able to extinguish the ames. A short time later Deputies were dispatched to 3950 10th Street, Pioneer, responding to a second structure re. Deputies reported that when they arrived they found a single wide mobile home fully engulfed in ames. Deputies reported that both homes appeared to have been abandoned and there was no electricity going to either trailer. Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce contacted the State Fire Marshall's Of ce, who will continue to investigate the res. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det. Ramiro, Florida State Fire Marshalls Of ce, at 954-321-3704 or 1-877-NoArson (662-7766), Florida Advisory Committee on Arson Prevention (FACAP). Anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of individual(s) responsible for committing arson may be illegible for a reward up to $2,500 through the FACAP. Fire marshal investigates suspicious res Drug Free Hendry County and the Glades and Hendry Tobacco Free Partnerships have been working with local drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention partners to bring a very engaging speaker to our community. Dr. Victor DeNoble will speak at the Moore Haven High School auditorium on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 6 p.m. Victor J. DeNoble, Ph.D. was recruited in 1980 by the Phillip Morris Research Center to build a secret research lab and to develop a cigarette with reduced heart risk. After identifying a nicotine substitute that did not elevate the heart rate in animal models, his attempts to publish his work were suppressed by Philip Morris. He was red; his laboratory and data seized. In 1994, after a decade of being silenced by a secrecy agreement, Dr. DeNoble became the rst whistle-blower to testify before Congress about his research conducted within the tobacco industry. His research showed that nicotine has addictive properties similar to other drugs of addiction. His congressional testimony was the cornerstone for sweeping changes in public policy regarding tobacco use, the national tobacco settlement and the events leading up to President Obama's signing into law the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act in 2009. Dr. DeNoble is also the subject of the 2011 lm documentary "Addiction Incorporated." Since his congressional testimony, Dr. DeNoble has been speaking to a wide range of audiences about his experience in the tobacco industry and providing education about the science of drug addiction. Dr. DeNoble will explain how the developing teen brain is susceptible to addiction and how exposure to tobacco and other drugs can affect the brains of users for a life time. This presentation will help the community understand the need behind many of the efforts that prevention partners are working on in Hendry and Glades Counties. There will be time for questions and answers, so please consider attending this worthwhile event. Bring friends and family to hear from the man who helped shine the light on a very dark industry. Tobacco Free Glades County will conduct its next meeting on September 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Moore Haven High School Auditorium and Dr. DeNoble will be the featured guest during this meeting. If you have any questions, or if you would like more information, please contact Doug Freer at the Glades County Health Department at (863) 946-0707 xt.404. Whistleblower to speak locally

Matt Kindermann Interview Observationsby Matt KindermannThis past week I had the privilege to observe several interviews that were conducted one-on-one between the candidate and the supervisor. The position was for a non-pro t, grant-based program, working in the area schools. Of all the applications received, the supervisor chose to interview only those who had a history of self-initiated work. Because the position required the individual to travel and work semiautonomously with other agencies, the employee needed to have demonstrated that they were capable of producing with little or no supervision. As the interviewees arrived at the scheduled location, they were greeted by a receptionist and instructed to ll out a pre-employment questionnaire and background check authorization. The receptionist attempted to engage each candidate in conversation. After each interview, the supervisor asked the receptionist if the candidate appeared sociable and friendly. So, be aware to treat kindly those that you come into contact with during your interview! As I observed the interviews, I paid special attention as to how the supervisor responded non-verbally to the candidate's answers. A raised eye-brow or a moment of speechlessness after an answer can tell you a story! A few complaints the supervisor had concerning how the candidates presented themselves included: showing too much skin for the position (for a job working in schools!); wearing sunglasses on their head during the interview; too much jewelry; and not showing up early enough to complete the paperwork before the scheduled interview time. If you have not been to the location of the interview before, you should do a dry run to determine the time it would take to arrive 15 minutes early. For a position that requires traveling, getting lost on the way to the interview might create an impression of incompetence.Southwest Florida Works is the regional state workforce board for Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties.

Rosie Rosario, now 31 and is the mother of four beautiful children, Kassi (12), Hailee (7) and her twins Tommy and Shalynn (4). Rosie grew up in LaBelle all of her life and has been known and well-liked by many local residents. Several years ago she moved to the Orlando area to venture out looking to make a better life for herself and her family. She furthered her education, secured a wonderful pre-school teaching position at Kids R Kids, and bought her own home. She and her family were very happy. But soon that all changed. On Saturday, August 25, 2012, Rosie and her four-year-old twins were on their way home from a day of haircuts and school shopping. The weather turned erce. She lost control of her vehicle and was struck by another vehicle. Rosie and Tommy both sustained serious injuries and were hospitalized in critical condition but remain stable. Their little angel Shalynn, however, did not make it out of the accident. She now rests in peace with the Lord. Something a mother and father never expected to hear. As these past few days have been very hard for Rosie and her children, the times ahead will be even harder. Their healing process will be long and dif cult, both physically and emotionally. But Rosie and the children have lots of loving, caring, compassionate family and friends, and most importantly the Lord to help them get through this journey. "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles." Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) Although times are rough for all of us right now now is the time for us to pull together as a community for someone who needs our help. There will be a lot of unexpected expenses such as funeral and medical costs, food and clothing costs for the children, and gas costs from the travels back and forth to hospitals, doctors and therapists for Tommy. Rosie will remain hospitalized for quite some time due to the extent and nature o f her injuries. Friends and family are asking all Rosie's LaBelle friends to please help. A special account has been set up at First Bank in LaBelle in Rosie's name. You can visit the drive-thru window or go into the bank to make your donation. All donations will be used strictly for the funeral expenses, medical expenses, and care of the children. Look for collection bins/jars at local businesses hot pink/black/white. Food gift cards and gas cards will be helpful as well. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Lisa or Andy Herrero at 863-675-7297. Rosie's friends want to thank all of you in our community, ask that you continue to pray for this beautiful family, and may God richly bless each and every one of you. Crash, loss of child devastates beautiful local family Submitted photo Rosie Rosario and her twins were victims of a traf c crash in Orlando August 25. Tommy, seated to her right, suffered major injuries as did his mom. Tommy's twin, Shaylynn, did not make it. Sisters Kassi, age 12, and Hailee, age 7, are also trying to cope.

At last, an end to the project is nally coming into view. Work on two segments, three miles from SR 833 to US 27 and ve miles from Birchw ood Parkway to Dalton Lane, begin early this month. Construction will take place on one side of the road at a time, allowing twow ay traf c to ow on the existing roadway. According to DOT, over 14,500 vehicles pass through that section of the highway daily; 22 percent are semi tractor-trailers. Construction on both will be concurrent, and they are expected to be complete in Spring/Summer 2013. The $9 million CR 833-US 27 segment w ill be challenging maintain traf c on existing roadway for the CR 833-US27 section. Motorists will notice construction signage, erosion control and the compiling of materials to the site along SR 80 at CR 833. When it’s done project Public Information Of cer Dave Parks said traf c ow will be monitored and communication remain open between Hendry County and DOT. The brand new SR 80-US 27 interchange under construction is also expected to be complete in the winter of 2013. As always, motorists should be watchful for construction mainly during the daytime, however, some work may take place at night. Completion of those two most recent projects will leave only two more segments: Birchwood Parkway to Dalton Lane and Dalton to Indian Hills. There is no ROW or construction funding for those two sections at this time, but it is “in the pipeline.” When those last sections are complete, all of SR 80 will be a divided highway through all of Hendry County. Also SR 29 south of LaBelle from Spencer to Cowboy Way is in the early design phase, w ith PD&E complete Hendry County Commission Chairman Tris Chapman was at the event. He said it took a lot of convincing to get the Regional Planning Council and Florida’s Heartland Regional Development Initiative (FHREDI) on board with the SR 80 widening project. The project became a priority two years ago w hen it was found that SR 80/US 27 was the most dangerous intersection in Florida and the sixth most dangerous in the entire country. Funding for the project is mainly coming from federal monies and the state Small County Road Assistance Program (SCRAP) fund. SR 80 construction projects commenceCaloosa Belle/ Patty BrantInterested locals attended the informational session presented by the Department of Transportation meeting Augut 29 at Port LaBelle Inn.

Leading the way were sophomores Glenn Burton, Scott Morrison, and Freshman Marcellous Mitchell who each scored a touchdown. Varsity falls to 0-1 due to mistakes The Cowboys played a physical game and had opportunities to start off the season 1-0, but failed to keep mistakes in check in a crucial 4th quarter vs the Cardinal Mooney cougars. After grabbing the momentum in the 3rd quarter the Cowboys suffered two coverage breakdown on long passes as the Cougars pulled away for the win. The Cowboys offensive line was stout and opened holes for their stable of running backs and the defense was very tough against the run. The Cowboys look to reverse their fortune on Friday night when they travel to Fort Myers to take on Evangelical Christian School. JV rally falls short Vs.

Panther Research to Be PresentedHendry-Glades Audubon invites everyone to a free program on Monday, September 10, at 7 p.m. at the Cooperative Extension, Dallas Townsend Building 1085 Pratt Blvd. in LaBelle. Caitlin Jacobs, MS candidate, Dept. W ildlife Ecology and Conservation, UF-IFAS w ill present her research on the” Florida Panther and Calf Mortality.” The Florida panther is the only puma population currently found in the eastern United States. While in the 1980s the population was thought to be as low as 20-30 individuals, recent conserv ation efforts have resulted in an estimated population of 100-160 panthers. This population growth has placed panthers in closer proximity to humans and ranch lands.
