Thursday, September 13, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 37 See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Local folks often know what terri c talent we have in Hendry County, but it's especially rewarding when outsiders gure it out. For instance, Jodi Bell is starting her seventh year as Director of Federal Programs for Hendry County School District. She has been selected by the Florida Department of Education Florida Migrant Education Program as the Title I Migrant Program Administrator of the Year for 2012. The honor re ects her "outstanding contribution to Hendry County's migrant students." Jodi has been teaching in Hendry County since 1989, beginning as a Chapter I Migrant kindergarten teacher. She has also been a classroom teacher and school administrator. Currently, she oversees Federal and Title Programs. Jodi Bell, named top migrant education administrator by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At their September 11 meeting in Clewiston, Hendry County Commissioners set the tentative millage rate for scal year 2012-13 at 7.7926 mills. The millage rate currently stands at 7.2894 mills. The rollback rate, the millage necessary to bring in the same amount of taxes as last year, is 7.3445. The tentative millage rate represents an increase of .5032 mills and will generate an additional $843,000 in propert taxes. The commissioners feel the increase is necessary in order to cover the county's $2.2 million shortfall, accrued from a huge unexpected Medicaid bill from the state. For County adopts tentative millage increase by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle County Administrator Judi KenningtonKorf has announced her intention to make a timetable for her resignation. The announcement came at the end of the September 11 county commission meeting, at the prompting of Commissioner Karson Turner. Commissioner Turner's motion to immediately dismiss Ms. Kennington-Korf was seconded by Commissinoer Al Perry. It failed 2-3, with Commissioners Chapman, Taylor and Harris dissenting. In a statement after the meeting, Chairman of the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners, Tris Chapman expressed concern and regret for the actions of some members of the Board of County Commissioners at Tuesday night's meeting in Clewiston. "Judi Kennington-Korf has been a caring and passionate public servant and advocate for the citizens of our community for thirty-three years. Judi's contribution to Hendry County has been signi cant and I disagree with the actions of the board on a number of levels." An attempt by the two young commissioners from Clewiston, Perry and Turner, to have the County Administrator immediately step down was defeated when Commissioners Taylor, Chapman, and Harris voted No'. Commissioner Darrell Harris said that Ms. Kennington-Korf had already agreed to resign and should be given some time to put together a exit plan. "I don't know whether it should be a week or three weeks or ve weeks, but a long time employee like Judi should at least be given a chance to come up with an exit timetable." Chairman Chapman went on to say: "Ms. Kennington-Korf does have a contract, and when she noti ed me of her decision to step down yesterday, she agreed to continue to perform her duties through a transition period. Judi has handled herself with dignity and professionalism, even during this dif cult time." Longtime Commissioner Janet Taylor said, "The county will never have a more loyal, BOCC rebuffs county administrator Celebrate the season with "Fall for LaBelle" a grand evening of fun and great food and recognition of local heroes.

She also gets personally involved in getting to know the students and families in order to better address their needs and concerns. One of Mrs. Bell’s co-workers best describes her as “…..a wonderful lady who wears many hats and is always willing to help everyone. W hat makes her a great Federal Programs Director? Her dedication, understanding, and care for the Migrant farm workers and their families…going the extra mile to make a difference in a child’s educational journey. A lways willing to be a team player and leading by example.” Gordon Swaggerty, Deputy Superintendent stated, “I am not surprised that Mrs. Bell is the recipient of this award. Jodi is v ery deserving of the honor of being selected as Migrant Program Administrator of the Y ear for the State of Florida. She is an extremely talented and capable administrator with a great work ethic, but most of all she is truly an advocate for our students and is willing to do whatever she can to help them succeed.” For her part, Jodi said she’s humbled by the “phenomenal staff” that drives the program. There are nine advocates on staff in the of ce, middle school and at UES, where they work with parents. She said the folks on her staff advocate tirelessly, often 12-14 hours a day, for students. “They never say no to families,” Jodi said. Migrant families have a lot of needs and these advocates work to hook them up with resources for whatever those needs may be. They also do needs assessments with parents and teachers. Martha Hernandez in Clewiston and Marie Delgado in LaBelle are the of ce managers. In addition to working with students and families, her of ce monitors 12-15 grants every year, she said. This year the of ce has a little more help, with Barbara Mundy as the new Administrator of Federal Programs. Work often forces migrant families to come into the area late, which means the children start out behind the rest of the class. Staff members hold of ce and home visits, enroll students in school, make sure immunizations and physicals are complete, direct families to appropriate resources and generally make sure these kids are in school every possible day. At the elementary level, children often need homework help. Many of these kids have no one at home that can help them so the of ce offers tutoring and after school programs. For high schoolers, it’s all about credit accrual for graduation so after school help is available. As for all parents, it’s important to know the stringent new Florida graduation guidelines for all ninth grade students beginning their high school careers, so Barbara Mundy works with the guidance counselors. She also helps track freshmen at semester levels so they can make up credits as they go along. Amy Plaza is the program’s high school liaison at LaBelle High School. She helps arrange college tours. Adrian Soto At Clewiston High Schoolis the program liaison and helps get college scholarships for their students. Jodi said she has been able to take students to Washington, DC. every year as juniors in the Close Up program during Spring Break as part of their government studies. The program serves Hendry County migrant students ages 3-21. If they are 18-20 years old and haven’t yet graduated from high school, they are referred to the Adult School and GED prep programs. Last school term there were 1,700 migrant students in Hendry County schools. About half that are currently enrolled as school begins, but more will be coming. It just depends on when families arrive from their jobs elsewhere. For many migrant families, Hendr y County acts as a base where students remain with family while others go on the road to work. Jodi said she likes to work with people. She especially is pleased when students call and ask for help with college paperwork or scholarship paperwork. “It means we’ve made a difference and that the students trust us,” she commented. To demonstrate just how effective her program can be, Jodi said one of their graduates recently went to Brown University in New York, and another is at Notre Dame. She said she “eavesdropped” on the student’s Brown University interview and was impressed with the her poise, articulate answers and how her vision for the future impacts others. Jodi said she is most proud of is the number of kids helped to graduate through this program. Often it takes a lot of work with other states and even other countries to come up with school records and staff uses state resources whenever possible, especially for high school students. For Jodi it’s all about the team. “I guide,” she said, “staff does the work.” 2013 that bill will be some $800,000, which will be paid through the tax increase. At the last commission meeting, cuts from public safety, health and mental health departments and the library were discussed. Commissioner Al Perry was looking for more cuts, suggesting a ve percent across the board cut for the board of county commission budget and a three percent cut for public safety, along with using some $400,000 of the county’s reserves. The nal budget hearing will be Tuesday, September 25, 5 p.m. at the Courthouse. for your business or organization in the civic center before the banquet. Call Sara at 6750125 to reserve space.

Prior to Kavarick reporting the burglary, Hendry County deputies had received information of an early morning burglary. As deputies continued to follow up on the information, they were able to develop leads indicating Paris and another party had committed the burglary. Deputies made several attempts to locate Paris and question her about the burglary but they were unable to nd her.

Matt Kindermann Job Fair Seasonby Matt KindermannJob Fairs are a great way for employers to connect with potential candidates in an uncommitted atmosphere. By design, the event is a means of quickly gaining that “ rst impression” of an applicant, before dedicating the time and energy to scrutinize an application or resume for necessary quali cations or experience. Simply put, it is the reverse application process, where the hiring authorities get a preview of the potential interviewee before the application is considered. Finding a job fair early enough to participate as a business can be challenging, and while there is no local “jobfair. com,” the local workforce of ce can guide the employer to the availabilities in the area. Florida Gulf Coast University offers two job fairs a year, the next one scheduled for April and registration is at http:// www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin. aspx?EventID=1118240. Every college in the area has a Career Center. Connect with employer support professionals at Edison State College (www.edison.edu/careerservices), Hodges University (www.hodges.edu/studentServices/career.aspx), I-Tech (www. itech.edu/partners_2.htm) and Southwest Florida College (www.swfc.edu/graduateplacement/employer/services.php) for direct connection to their respective student bodies. Another great source is the Chambers of Commerce, where members should pay attention to newsletters for upcoming events. Any employer or agency desiring to hold an exclusive “Hiring Event,” where you are the only employer conducting onsite interviews, should de nitely contact your local workforce of ce. Hiring Events allow the employer to utilize the no-fee services of the workforce agency, including facilities, computer equipment, and marketing outreach.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." by Les MorganThe Declaration of Independence, adopted by the Second Continental Congress consisting of 56 delegates and authored by Thomas Jefferson on July 4, 1776, underscores our trust in God: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” While there were slight differences in how those who authored the Declaration of Independence worshiped God, it is clearly discernible that there was by far an overwhelming af rmation that this new America would be dependent on the God of the Bible for His blessing, His con rmation and His oversight for truth. Unless you have been living under a rock in the backside of a God-forsaken hell-hole, you can clearly see America has drifted lightyears away from her earliest stated intentions. How disappointed I was to see and hear that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) platform deleted any mention of God, which has always, without exception, appeared in their past platforms. Moreover, action was taken to say Jerusalem is not to be considered the capital of Israel! What? Ask people on the street of LaBelle what is the capital of Vermont, or Wyoming, and the average person may not know Montpelier or Cheyenne. However, it is a safe bet nearly everyone would say Jerusalem is the capital of Israel! Due to an outcry by many and to their credit, the DNC called a meeting and quickly voted to put the name of God back in their platform. However, my questions included, “Why was God removed from their platform? Who or what committee suggested such action to discredit Jerusalem? Was it the president? Did a non-religious group craft that change? Why was that decision made? What was the message being conveyed to and from that particular political party? Here’s another question – can you imagine how this action would have been received eleven years ago, just two days after the horror of 9/11? What has happened and why? What a privilege to live in a nation that can say we are “one nation under God” and be reminded of God’s provisions every time we exchange our currency which bears the words, “In God We Trust.” The omission of God’s name in our national life is a sad reminder and wake-up call that we are moving further from our spiritual roots in the JudeoChristian beliefs and values into secularism which leaves God out of our lives. Even a cursory review of history will conrm that those nations and people groups who have made that selection have moved into a downward spiral socially, economically, spiritually and politically. Case in point – take any country in Europe. Review where those countries were when God’s ways were held up before the people as the standard and then study where those nations are today. The contrast is like ammoni a smelling salts under ones nose. Or, consider the former USSR. When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize he was asked the question, “What made it possible for the Russian Revolution to take place and for Communism to rise to power?” Solzhenitsyn replied, “Men forgot God.” God told Jeremiah, “My people have forgotten me” (Jer 2:32). Does this not describe America today? When an entire political party de es God and resolves to move forward with Him, is that not an astonishing statement? Can you imagine President Harry Truman (D) publicly declaring as he assumed the highest ofce in America following the sudden death of FDR, “God is dismissed from America and that we would move into our battles apart from dependence on God? “ It is time that America woke up! I challenge the preachers in our area to review with your congregations the founding principles of our country. Af rm the Biblical foundations that were deemed so precious by our fore-fathers they had these truths etched into marble and granite in strategic places like the Supreme Court, US Senate and House of Congress. Clearly this was done so all further generations would kno w what America was built upon from her earliest days. For some this may seem a bit robust. One may wonder if the better plan would be to sit by and take little action. Here’s a question for those considering a “wait and see” position. Did you ever thin k you would see the day in our nation when the Catholic Church would be told by the Government, “You’re position on the preborn does not matter – you must provide healthcare that allows employees to have abortions paid for”? Can you imagine President John F. Kennedy (D), a Catholic, holding such a position? We need to hear the ancient message o f the prophet Hosea: “Hear the word of the Lord...because the Lord has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: There is no faithfulness, no love, no acknowledgement of God in the land...my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge...a people without understanding will come to ruin” (Hosea4:1). He means we are destroyed because of our lack of the knowledge of God and without an understanding of God we will come to ruin. The prophet goes on to tell us, “Come, let us return to the Lord...let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him” (Hosea 6:1, 3). Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church on Highway 80 in LaBelle. The church is located across the street from City Hall. Wake Up, America! Les Morgan

Supports county administratorAl Perry, Karson Turner and whoever else is involved: Leadership is de ned as the ability to guide, direct or in uence people. Lack means a complete absence of a particular thing. After reading the front page of the Caloosa Belle I was stunned to see that Judi Kennington-Korf was put on notice. I thought there must be some mistake. Without a reason or explanation for asking for her resignation, w ithout shame for the way this commission has behaved toward Judi, who has dedicated her entire adult life to Hendry County and its residents. She has done so much with so very little, it's no surprise that someone would envy her ability to the extent they want her dismissed. This ignorant behavior smacks of nastiness unbecoming of leadership and betrayal by people who have been elected by the voters of this county. Why are you not willing to state your reasons? You don't have anything that can stand on its own, except your opinion. You have the responsibility to vote on behalf of your constituents, yet you continue to raise property taxes while the value of property continues to plummet. My opinion is that you are trying to de ect the truth about yourselves by using Judi as the scapegoat. She has been working selflessly for years for this county without an administrative assistant and de nitely not being paid the two positions she has covered. So, instead of being appreciative of her years of dedication and service, you want to hand her a notice. Good luck on your next re-election.

Thank you New York, NY (September 4, 2012) Because many schools don't allow students to use sunscreen or wear a hat outdoors during the school day without written permission from a physician, The Skin Cancer Foundation has created a sun protection form that parents and doctors can sign, allowing students to bring these items to school, apply and use as needed. The form is available at www.skincancer.org/schoolnote. "Every child should have access to proper sun protection at school," says Perry Robins, MD, President of The Skin Cancer Foundation. "Alarmingly, California is the only state with legislation that gives children the right to take sun protection measures at school. Given the absence of similar legislation in other states, the Foundation hopes to ll this void by providing parents with the necessary means to ensure their children stay safe in the sun at school." During a typical school day, it's not unusual for children to receive a signi cant amount of sun exposure. Children in elementary school typically have outdoor recess between 10 AM and 2 PM, a time when the sun is especially intense. Proper sun protection in childhood can drastically reduce the risk of developing skin cancer as an adult. Suffering just one blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence more than doubles a person's risk of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, later in life. The Skin Cancer Foundation has always recommended that everyone, regardless of age and skin color, adopt a complete sun protection regimen. At school, children should be able to cover-up with protective clothing, including broad-brimmed hats and UV-blocking sunglasses. Additionally, they should wear a broad-spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen every day, and be allowed to bring it to school for easy reapplication. The Skin Cancer Foundation's sun protection form ensures that children have access to recommended sun safety measures. The Skin Cancer Foundation strives to educate children about the dangers of skin cancer and the need for early detection and prevention. The Foundation recently debuted Sun Smart U, an interactive education program that includes a robust website for teachers and a free downloadable lesson plan. Sun Smart U was designed in accordance with National Health Standards for middle and high school students and ma y be particularly useful to Health and Physical Education teachers. Through Sun Smart U, students learn about the dangers of tanning through the real-life story of a young woman with Stage III melanoma, and the importance of incorporating a proper sun protection regimen into their everyday lifestyles. For more information, please visit www.skincancer.org/education.About The Skin Cancer FoundationThe Skin Cancer Foundation is the onl y global organization solely devoted to the prevention, early detection and treatment o f skin cancer. The mission of the Foundation is to decrease the incidence of skin cancer through public and professional education and research. For more information, visit www.SkinCancer.org.

Construction project on West Cowboy Way from Amanda Street to SR 29 CountyContinued From Page 1 knowledgable and dedicated worker than J udi Kennington-Korf. It’s a sad day in Hendry County that we have come to this. After 33 years of dedicated service to Hendry County, this is the reward.”Previous meetingAt their August 28 meeting, commissioners approved a request from Associate Planner for Hendry County Sarah Catala to change the zoning from residential/medium density to Planned Unit Development for 4.2 acres at 4975. SR 80W. The owners were granted the zoning change in 2009, but were unable to get a site plan for the property in the two years alloted. Therefore, the zoning reverted to it former zoning. Ms. Catala told the commission that the owners still want to develop the property to high intensity commercial with three of ce/ w arehouse structures and three residences. The change was granted on the condition that a front road or easement be set aside on the northide of the property for public and landowner use.Sterling BlueprintJohn Pieno presented a management system for county government intended to improve employee productivity, customer satisfaction and the county’s return on its investments. Sterling Blueprint is a not-for-pro t public-private partnership begun 25 years ago under the Departmentof Commerce. Mr. Pieno said at this time 40 states partcipate. The plan offers a review of the management system with measurements and encouraging improved communitcation. There is a xed cost of $7,500 to set up system and for mentoring. The board decided to look at the plan seriously after the budget is set.Franchise feeCounty Administrator Judi KenningtonKorf suggested the board implement a franchise fee ordinance for unincorprated Hendry County. It was suggested that uch a fee would provide some income from utilities such as FPL, Glades Electric Co-op, Lee County Co-op and the new natural gas lines coming in. Commissioner Chapman was favorable, saying that already some 71 businesses have hooked up to the natural gas line coming into the east side of the county. Ms. Kennington-Korf said it could be a recurring revenue stream for the county. She said the maximum franchise fee for electric companies is 5.9 percent.Population reportSarah Catala presented the new preliminary population report from the Bureau of Economic and Buiness Research (BEBR) at the Univerity of Florida. The 2010 Census shows 27,345 permanent residents of Hendry County. BEBR’s preliminary estimate is very close: 26,288. The estimate used for state revenue sharing will be 26,028. (Unincorporated Hendry County also lost 260 inmates when HCH closed.) Ms. Catala told the board the difference would have a slight effect on the county’s revenue sharing. However, Commissioner Turner said he’d like to challenge these numbers. The discussion will take place at the commission’s rst meeting in September.Also:-Hendry County Engineer Shane Parker received authorization to use $69,655 in SCRAPP funding to repave three miles of CR 835 beginning from 5.75 miles south of US 27. -The county is still wrestling with the best way to reconstitute the East Rec Board from overwhelming monetary issues. The West Rec Board has been held up as a model. It has two members from the city, two from the county, one from the school board but the East Rec does not have to be formatted the same way. Commissioner Perry said the best option is to get the right community volunteers for the board. A study group will decide the makeup of the board as well as appropriate fees for users. Commissioner Chapman was against instituting a sliding scale, saying those don’t satisfy anybody. Commissioner Turner said an advisory board is needed, that could ultimately morph into the nal board. Clerk of Courts Barbara Butler suggested that the county could use some of the $6 million in the solid waste fund to help residents in the MSBU to lower garbage fees for one year. newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads Your community directory is a click away!

They want to encourage all fans to attend this Friday's Cowboy football game at home vs. Lemon Bay. Go Cowboy football team! by Jordan OdafferAfter a hard fought game the Cowboys had two goal line stands in the last ve minutes to put Evangelical Christian away. The Cowboys scored a 13-7 victory over the Sentinels behind a strong running game and a tough defense. The game appeared to be on the way to a shoot out as the Cowboys marched down the eld and scored when Derek Bass (sr.) connected with Tyler O'Ferrell (sr.) on a 17y ard touchdown pass that was immediately answered by a 7 play, 64 yard drive by the Sentinels. With the score knotted at seven, both defense settled in. On the following possession the Cowboys were forced to punt, but Arnoldo Ayala (so.) forced a fumble on the return and Correy O'Ferrell (sr.) recovered the fumble deep in ECS territory. The Cowboys were unable to get into the end zone, but David Marroquin (jr.) made a 30-yard eld goal to lead the Cowboys into the second quarter up 10-7. To start the second quarter Luis Hernandez (sr.) produced a quarterback sack on third down that got the Cowboys offense back on the eld. The Cowboys failed to convert on a fourth down and gave the ball back to ECS. However, on the ensuing play Eduardo Gonzalez (jr.) intercepted a pass and returned it to the Sentinel's 5-yard line, but the return was negated by a block in the back. After a solid drive featuring Ellis Johnson (sr.) and Danny Robinson (so.) the Cowboys again called on Marroquin to kick a 33y ard eld goal to take a 13-7 lead. The rest of the quarter was a defensive struggle besides w hen Jesus Karr (jr.) broke a 37-yard run down to ECS's 15-yard line to set up another Marroquin attempt, but this one sailed left just before the half. In the third quarter both teams exchanged possessions, but neither team could really get offensive momentum going, and the quarter ended with the Cowboys still leading 13-7. However, that is when the drama started. About half way through the quarter ECS was able to drive inside LaBelle's 10y ard line, but were stopped on fourth down. Following that stop the Cowboys attempted to run the clock out, but lost possession of the ball on a center exchange on third down from their own 2-yard line. After a timeout, Devante Ray (sr.) Caleb Rimes (jr.) Ryan Drapal (so.) David Andrade (sr.) Kip Stansly (sr.) Luis Hernandez (sr.) Danny Robinson (Jr.) Tyler O'Ferrell (sr.) Cathavius Adams (sr.) Eduardo Gonzalez (jr.) and William Podubynskyj (sr.) bowed their necks on ve straight plays and got the ball back for the offense in dramatic fashion. Bass then took the snap from Chris Jasiak (sr.) and knelt on the ball to run out regulation. Upcoming Football GameWho: Lemon Bay HS (2-0 )@ at LaBelle High School (1-1) When : Septmber 14 at 7:30 p.m. Last Year: Lemon Bay held LaBelle off 20-14 at home. This year: The Manta Rays are 2-0 and have outscored their opponents 43-10 in the rst two games of the season. They bring in an explosive offense that is very diverse and set up to confuse their opponents using exotic formations and misdirection. Second year coach David Ogilvie has done an excellent job preparing his team to be successful this year. Come out and support the Cowboys Thursday and Friday night this week. JV Cowboys lose hard fought game to Tigers in home debutAgainst Clewiston the JV Football Cowboys suffered a tough loss, 12-0. LaBelle was in position to score three times, but missed three eld goal attempts. However, there were bright spots on both sides of the ball as numerous JV players contributed to the effort. Some players of note were Jesse Pequeno, Jesse Cavazos, Glenn Burton, Marcellous Mitchell, Scott Morrison, Homer Garcia and Jack Rivas. These young Cowboys have worked hard this week to get ready to take on Naples this Thursday night at home.

The boys team led by senior runner Erick Medina posted a 5k time of 17:40. Erick, w ho participated at the state nals last year, is wanting his senior year to be his best yet, w hich means dropping more time throughout this season. A promising new runner for the girls team this year is sophomore Ana Figueroa, who nished rst for the girls team posting a time of 24:22. Next up is a small meet with Estero High School and then the varsity boys travel to Lakeland to take part in the Jim Ryan Invitational, a huge cross country event. Both coaches Jef Frost (boys) and Jenny McClain (girls) believe the teams are off to a good start, but have a lot of hard running at hand to get through district competition and make it to state.

The CDC has received reports of 1,993 cases of West Nile v irus disease in people, including 87 deaths. Over 70 percent of the cases have been reported from six states (Texas, South Dakota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Michigan). A total of 28 cases have been reported in Florida this year (Duval, Escambia, Hillsborough and Okaloosa counties). A t this time, no cases have been reported in Hendry and Glades counties. Symptoms of West Nile Virus People typically develop symptoms of WNV between 3 and 14 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Symptoms may include fever, headache, and body aches, nausea, v omiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. Symptoms can last for as short as a few days, though even healthy people have become sick for several weeks. Eighty percent of people (about 4 out of 5) infected w ith WNV will not show any symptoms at all. Some people infected with WNV may develop severe illness. Severe symptoms can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. Talk with your healthcare provider if you have concerns or show symptoms of WNV. Prevention is Key Being outside means y ou’re at risk. Pay attention to avoiding mosquito bites if you spend a lot of time working or playing outside. Everyone can take basic precautions to avoid getting mosquito bites by following the recommendations of the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments in the “Drain and Cover” prevention message listed below. Drain and Cover To prevent mosquitoes from living and multiplying around your home or business: DRAIN standing water:  Drain water from garbage cans, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainwater has collected.  Discarded old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren’t being used.  Empty and clean birdbaths and pet’s water bowls at least once or twice a week.  Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water.  Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated and empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER your skin with:  CLOTHING If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves.  REPELLENT Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with 10-30% DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective.  Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. COVER doors and windows with screens:  Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. For more information about West Nile Virus visit: http://www.doh.state. .us/environment/medicine/arboviral/WestNileVirus. html or http://www.doh.state. .us/Environment/medicine/arboviral/Prevention.html W est Nile Virus and you “As you get older, your immune system gets weaker and you become more susceptible to the u virus, so get your u shots early before this year’s outbreak begins later this month,” cautioned Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens. Weber pointed out that “it is literally a matter of life and death for older Americans, particularly those over 65.” He cited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which reports that some 36,000 Americans die each year from the u and that seniors account for 90% of those deaths. The u season starts in late September and early October, but it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to become fully effective. So, Weber urges older Americans to get their shots as early as possible, noting that the vaccine is fully covered by Medicare. “Set an appointment with your family doctor to get vaccinated as soon as this year’s batch of serum is available or go to the ‘Flu Near You’ Website [https:// unearyou.org/] to nd locations by Zip Code where the vaccine will be available.” Meanwhile, the AMAC chief suggested, “take precautions such as limiting contact with friends and relations who may be showing symptoms of illness like coughing and sneezing. And, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after excursions that involve mingling in crowded public spaces and after riding public transit systems.” Weber pointed out that those who wind up getting the u this year have recourse. There are antiviral drugs available to treat the illness, particularly if you act quickly, he said. The World Health Organization reports that u vaccines can be up to 90 percent effective in preventing illness and that it slashes in uenza death rates by as much as 80 percent. “There is no need for anyone to risk infection. The vaccine is widely available throughout the country and free for those on Medicare. And for those older Americans who are not old enough for Medicare, many communities offer free and/or low cost vaccinations. The shots don’t hurt, but the u can be downright deadly,” Weber said.About AMACThe Association of Mature American Citizens [http://www.amac.us] is a vibrant, vital and conservative alternative to those traditional organizations, such as AARP, that dominate the choices for mature Americans who want a say in the future of the nation. Where those other organizations may boast of their power to set the agendas for their memberships, AMAC takes its marching orders from its members. We act and speak on their behalf, protecting their interests, and offering a conservative insight on how to best solve the problems they face today. AMAC urges seniors to get flu shots early A Customer Service workshop is scheduled for Thursday, September 20, at the historic Clewiston Inn from 2-4 p.m. You w ill not want to miss this opportunity to take advantage of this informative experience.

Tried this one last w eek. To prevent boil overs when cooking pasta, just lay a w ooden spoon over the pot while it’s boiling. Guess what? No mess. For power outages go out into the yard and pull up a few of y our solar lights. Put them in a tall heavy vase or glass and you have light for hours. If you set them or candles, in front of a mirror they give off twice the light. To keep the house in reasonable order give each kid a different color bucket or put their names on them. Before bedtime have them gather up their stuff and take them to their bedroom. This is soooo much fun to tell every body how to keep order when, in fact, when I had three of my own the house looked like the county dump. Still does... but it’s MY OWN DUMP... Picture this...When I nally expire my kids will rent the hugest dumpster they can nd, back it up to the door and start tossing all my treasures into it. Say’ins: Sometimes the majority only means that all the idiots are on the same side at the same time.....or... You don’t have to attend every argument you’re invited too.... or.... What happens if I get scared half to death, twice? W itches Brew
