Thursday, September 20, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 38 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The city is nally inching closer to actual construction of its ne w state-of-the-art water plant. Tim Taylor of Applied Technology Management (ATM) presented nal documents to be submitted to USDA along with nal approval o f the bid package. After that, a nal meeting will need to be scheduled, along with the closing and preconstruction conference. The welcome news came at the September 13 cit y commission meeting.Grant applicationThe board received the annual local elected of cials and general public Fair Housing Training at the meeting. The training is required in order for the city to apply for $700,000 or more in federal grants. The city must chose a category: housing, either neighborhood or commercial, or economic development. These grants bene t low and moderate income persons, aid in the prevention or elimination o f slums or blight and may alleviate other needs such as emergencies. The board unanimously opted to seek funding for neighborhood revitalization, thinking of focusing on the Pamona Circle, Citrus Street and East Lincoln areas. No matching funds are required. City plans for water plant nalizing by Jordan OdafferThe Cowboys continued their fourth quarter dramatics in a come from behind win vs the Lemon Bay Manta Rays. Lemon Bay came in with a potent offense that was scoring 43 points per game and an undefeated record. Thanks to the Cowboys both the Manta Rays' offensive statistics and record are defunct. In the rst quarter the Cowboys' defense set the early tone by driving Lemon Bay back 11 yards on their rst series with Devante Ray (sr.) leading the charge. After a 14-yard punt return by Cathavius Adams the Cowboys offense drove 34 yards for a score that was capped by a 16-yard pass from Derek Bass (sr.) to Ray. After David Marroquin (Jr.) made the extra point the Cowboys led 7-0. After a short kick the Cowboys defense was forced to begin play at the 50-yard line. However, they were up to the task as Phillip Stansly (sr.) led the charge making 3 out of 4 tackles as the Cowboys forced the Manta Rays to turn the ball over on downs. On the following drive the Cowboys were forced to punt to the dangerous Manta Ray offense. The Cowboys held the Manta Rays to a third down attempt, but were unable to deny Lemon Bay as they scored a 69-yard touchdown pass. The Extra Point knotted the score at 7-7 and it stayed that way until part way through the third quarter when after a blocked punt the Manta Rays converted on a third and long to score on a 22-yard pass. However, on the extra point attempt Adams de ected the kick to keep the score at 13-7 in Lemon Bay's favor. Following the score both offenses jockeyed for eld position, but really could not establish a drive until in the fourth quarter when Ellis Johnson (sr.) returned a punt 26 yards, which set up a scoring drive. Following this scintillating return, Tyler O'Ferrell (sr.) connected with Johnson for a 23yard pass and Johnson nished the drive with a 39-yard scoring run to tie the game at 13-13. After Marroquin's extra point the Cowboys took the lead 14-13 and would not relinquish it. Following the score Luis Hernandez (sr.) recovered a fumble and Adams intercepted a pass to ice the game for the Cowboys. The Cowboys open district play this Friday at Avon Park.

All are welcome and encouraged to participate and enjoy. The LaBelle Give Back Committee’s sole mission is to gather as a community to assist in the funding of various local projects that w ill enhance the lives of our local youth. Each year the non-pro t group plans to raise money to bene t our community for a speci c project. The theme for this rst year is “Lighting of the Parks,” beginning with LaBelle Community Civic Park (adjacent to LaBelle Elementary School). This park is becoming a popular spot for not only families, but also exercise enthusiasts and athletic events. Not only will a portion of the park be lighted, but the group will also install a beautiful water fountain that was previously donated. The second goal the committee chose is Bob Mason Park. Those that have been in the area for many years have watched a beautiful park being misused. The committee felt this park could be enhanced for a more family oriented atmosphere by installing lights. The lighting will ensure safety and security to this beautiful riverside park. After careful reviewing, the Give Back Committee chose these two from a total of 17 parks for this year’s focus due to occupancy and usage. Along with Parks and Recreation, the Give Back Committee believes that lighting the parks will increase safety and security for all LaBelle residents. The Give Back Committee is also very excited about its future goals that will include fundraising events to bene t scholarship funds, LaBelle Little League, Pop Warner and numerous other worthy causes.Fire department Fire Chief Ray Pittman told the board that calls in August increased to 61, with 521 calls for service thus far this year. The department has 23 re ghters on its roster and more on the waiting list. The department has received a grant for an air monitor to measure potentially explosive levels of oxygen in the air. The commissioners asked how the possibility of the county losing an ambulance due to budget constraints might affect the city. Chief Pittman said it could add up to 2030 calls for LFD rst responders per month. Fire ghters respond when an ambulance is called out, he said. The LaBelle Fire Department is funded by both the City of LaBelle and Hendry County The LFD building, which is some 28 years old, may also need a new roof.Safe sidewalksLocal resident Brandi Gonzalez represented the Yeomans Avenue neighborhood in seeking speed bumps or other means o f improving her street. She said the sidewal k is old and unusable, unsafe for walkers or strollers. She presented signatures of her neighbors asking for some relief. Superintendent of Public Works Michael Boyle agreed that the sidewalks are cracked and the road holds water. However, the street needs xing and speed bumps would only make that process more dif cult. Commissioners discussed other ways to improve the safety of the neighborhood, including stop signs. Mayor Paul Puletti suggested the city put in new sidewalks rst the “permanent x” for the area the work on the street and possibly speed bumps in the future.Notable performancesRushing: Ellis Johnson17 rushes for 74 y ards and 1 TD, Danny Robinson6 rushes for 47 yards Passing: Derek Bass16 yard touchdown pass Receiving: Devante Ray16 yard touchdown catch Offensive linemen: David Andrade, Andy Castillejo and Jason Arnold posted their highest grades of the season.

LaBelle, Florida Hendry County Professional Paramedics and EMTs are warning residents that proposed cuts to resources and staf ng at the LaBelle Fire Department w ould leave citizens across Hendry County dangerously under protected. "Even in the worst of times the safety and security of residents of Hendry County must be our highest priority," said Lex Can eld, president of the Hendry County Professional Paramedics and EMTs Local 4520. "We urge our elected of cials to work with us to preserve public safety and help us protect lives." The Hendry County Board of County Commissioners is considering a plan to remove an ambulance from service and lay off three EMTs and two paramedics. A sixth position that is vacant would not be lled. "Reducing staf ng and leaving us with just four ambulances to cover a geographically large county is unsafe. This plan would dramatically increase response times, forcing residents to wait longer for emergency medical help in their greatest time of need," Can eld said. City of LaBelle paramedics and EMTs already are working hard to respond to emergencies despite limited staf ng and resources. Currently, re departments across Hendry County must pool their resources and manpower to safely protect nearly 40,000 residents over 1,200 square miles. A study by a broad coalition in the scienti c, re ghting, EMS and publicsafety communities shows that the size and con guration of an EMS rst responder crew and an advanced life support (ALS) crew have a substantial effect on the ability to respond to calls for emergency medical service. "Reducing staf ng is equivalent to playing Russian roulette with the lives of Hendry County residents," Can eld said. "We urge Hendry County commissioners to work with us to ensure that we have the resources to protect those who live and work here."The International Association of Fire Fighters, headquartered in Washington, DC, represents more than 300,000 Full-time professional re ghters and paramedics who protect 85 percent of the nation's population. More information is available at www. iaff org IAFF: Proposed cuts threaten public safety By Glenda Wilson Hendry Regional is upgrading a number of its patient rooms, and the hospital foundation has pitched in to help. Through community donations, the HRMC Foundation has provided $60,000 towards this project. Room renovations include: New wood tone, rolled vinyl oorings, designed for effective infection control Textured & painted walls New plumbing xtures Renovated bathrooms, which include tile ooring, walls, and showers Marbled window sills New lighting throughout Beautiful cabinets to include wardrobes and vanities (with corian surfaces) New air-conditioners and heating units New state-of-the-art beds "A patient's room in a hospital becomes their home away from home for the duration of their stay. Nursing embraces the physical environment as fundamental in the healing process. Rooms that are quiet, have natural light, comfort, and reduced noise contribute to holistic nursing care and subsequent healing. Our rooms will provide a family centered care space that will assist in the healing process," says Sandi Viall, Chief Nursing Of cer at Hendry Regional Medical Center. The HRMC Foundation has established naming opportunities for those interested in donating $15,000 for a patient room (now includes a new $7,500 patient bed). These donations may be paid by a one-time gift or through yearly installments of $3,000 for ve years, or $5,000 for three years. Several donor plaques are visible on room doors where individuals, civic organizations and businesses have already named rooms through their individual donations. When presenting the check to the hospital, Steve Nisbet, Foundation Chairman and Hospital Trustee, recognized the generosit y of donors, "The foundation members would like to thank all the people in our community who have made this project possible through their contributions to the HRMC Foundation," he said. Visitors are welcome to stop by the foundation and ask to see one of the renovated patient rooms. If you're interested in naming a room, please contact the Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation at 863-983-2735. Foundation donates renovations Apprenticeshipby Matt KindermannThe term Apprenticeship is almost an outdated title reminiscent of a bygone era of master craftsmen and artisans. Some industries still maintain strict apprenticeship guidelines such as union pipe tters, electricians and other construction trades. However, the professional apprenticeship program is alive and well in an array of other industries across the United States, and there are signi cant bene ts to being a Registered Apprenticeship Sponsor. The Department of Labor (DOL) maintains all information for apprenticeship sponsorships (employers) and apprentices (employees) at www.doleta.gov/OA. Programs do not have to be unionized under a formal labor agreement; many apprenticeships exist under Florida's Right to Work rules. The terms usually last anywhere from 1 to 6 years, and include 2,000 hours of on the job experience as well as 144 hours of classroom training, for over 1,000 different occupations including cooks, dental assistants, insurance adjusters and pharmacy technicians. Employers bene t by having access to special grants and tax incentives, as well as the ability to grow your own technical professionals. Manufacturers receive additional assistance with apprenticeship programs through the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) at www.nist.gov/mep, which conducts much of the classroom training through in-state, mobile classrooms. Employees bene t by gaining national credentials while earning a paycheck and experience. There is no minimum or maximum number of apprentices an employer may have. The hardest part is getting started, but the DOL and the State of Florida has representatives standing by to assist you in any way at 404-302-5483 and 850-2450454, respectively.Southwest Florida Works is the regional state workforce board for Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties.

Getting Cats across the Caloosahatchee and room to roam There’s no doubt that we live in the information age. From desktop computers to laptops to tablets and smartphones, you’re probably never more than two people away from access to the largest source of information ever assembled: the internet. Information on just about any subject is available online to anyone who can nd it. With search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and others, searching through the ever-growing wealth of available information is actually pretty simple most of the time. For most of us, browsing to our favorite search engine and typing in what we’re looking for is regular occurrence. But have you ever seen how many results there are on any given topic? A pretty straightforward search for this phrase: ‘computer repair in labelle, ’ yields ‘About 96,400 results’ in Google. 96,400!! Granted, the likely winners of that search lottery will be at the top of the list because our friends at Google sort things in what they call ‘organic indexes’. This simply means that they know approximately where in the world you are and list the most local results rst. That’s the power of a modern search engine at work. But what happens when you’re looking for information and the answer isn’t going to be something local? What happens when you need speci c information and your simple searches yield far too many links to look through? Answer: Use Advanced Search methods. Here are some basic tips. Search for an exact word or phrase Use quotes to search for an exact word or set of words in a speci c order. Example: “imagine all the people” This is a good technique to use when searching for things like lyrics to a song. Be careful though, because when you use quotes, your search engine will probably not try to correct your spelling or make other suggestions. Exclude a word Add a dash (-) before a word to exclude all results that include that word. This is especially useful for synonyms like Jaguar the car brand and jaguar the animal. Example: jaguar speed -car -automobile Include similar words Normally, synonyms might replace some words in your original query. Add a tilde sign (~) immediately in front of a word to search for that word as well as even more synonyms. Example: ~food facts This example will also nd things like ‘nutrition facts’, etc... Search for either word By default, most search engines automatically assume ‘AND’ between search terms. For example, searching ‘Computer Repair’ means ‘Computer AND Repair’. To search for either word but not both, insert an ‘OR’ like these examples: Computer OR Repair Olympics location 2014 OR 2018 Each search engine has their speci c rules and instructions for advanced searching. The examples given here are from google.com. For more information on advanced searching, use your search engine! Try a search for ‘Advanced Searching’ and see what happens!

Tallahassee, FL -High interest in this y ear’s election may well be a mismatch with sweeping changes in election law that have tightened voter address rules and reduced early voting days. Changing precinct lines and a ballot of unprecedented length worsen the situation, and the League of Women V oters of Florida sees potential problems ahead on Election Day. To make sure that every vote counts, the League is urging voters to take action now to ensure that they are eligible and prepared to vote. A new w ebsite, www.BeReadyToVote.org, makes the process easy. The site is a one-stop shop that allows Floridians to check and update their voter status, register to vote, nd their precinct, request an absentee ballot, check on important election dates and deadlines and be informed about the candidates and issues on the November 6 ballot. “Voters can prevent Election Day delays and frustration--what we call ‘electoral dysfunction’--by being prepared,” says League President Deirdre Macnab. “With the high level of enthusiasm and interest we’re seeing in this year’s election, sharp reductions in early voting days and a very lengthy ballot, we want to ensure a successful experience for every Florida voter. Even if you’re registered, you still should contact your local Supervisor of Elections to check your voter status and update your record if necessary.” Local Supervisors’ of ces throughout Florida are ready to help citizens prepare to vote. Macnab adds, “Being confronted by this year’s pages-long ballot lled with dense legal amendment language and often-misleading titles can also cause problems for unprepared voters and the voters behind them in line. People really need to know the issues and be ready.” Also available through www.BeReadyToVote.org is the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund’s 2012 Florida Election & Voter Guide, which contains nonpartisan information on the presidential and statewide candidates, constitutional amendments, and Supreme Court justices that will appear on the November 6 ballot. The League of Women Voters of Florida, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and in uences public policy through education and advocacy.
