Together with wife Marion, Hawkins is enjoying semi-retirement bliss, grateful for the freedom to spend more time with their son, lovely daughter-in-law and grandson. Hawkins’ favorite cheeky quote is “Life sucks when you only draw four cards.”)By Joel Hawkins“Art is a noble mission. Those who have been chosen by destiny to reveal the soul of a people, to let it speak in stone or ring in sounds, live under a powerful, almighty and all-prevailing force. They will speak a language, regardless of whether others understand them. They will suffer hardship rather than become unfaithful to the star which guides them from within.” Adolph Hitler, 1935 Art and literature are twin mirrors civilization uses to reveal the harsh realities and hopeful dreams of its existence. The prophetic words of Hitler do not mask the irony of his regime and the infamy that would become the Holocaust. In the last 100 years, few manmade events have had the emotional impact and have left such a frightful legacy as the Holocaust. Most everything we know of ancient civilizations has been culled from the literature and art of those civilizations. Ask any American in the last 40 years about the Holocaust and most will point to a movie or TV show that depicted the events of the Holocaust. For many of us, it is through the eye of the storytellers and artists that vivid images of atrocities are brought to life. It is hard (if not impossible) to imagine that one human could engage in such inhumanity, let alone that a regime could administer such horror on an entire people. It is through these artisans that most of us have knowledge of this horri c chapter of our history.Art of the Ghettos and CampsOur earliest glimpses into the horrible conditions came from the hands of the victims themselves. Drawings that depicted the conditions of life in the Ghettos and later Yesterday’s Shadows: The Holocaust and the Arts by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The LaBelle High School Class of 2013 is being shaken by another tragedy. On Monday afternoon, March 18, senior Margarito Reyes died when he lost control of the 2005 Dodge pickup truck he was driving. Eastbound on Cowboy Way at Eucalyptus Blvd., the vehicle crossed the centerline. He lost control and the truck began to rotate counterclockwise, exited the road and struck a group of trees on the north shoulder. The young man was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead due to his injuries. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, he was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. The crash occurred at 2:32 p.m. LaBelle High School Principal Lucinda Kelley spoke highly of the young man. Ms. Kelley said that late Monday they knew there had been a bad accident at that corner but had no idea it was a student. The school had its sports awards that night and it was after the awards that they got the word that it was Margarito. She said she called his teachers at home and others she knew who would be most effected by the news. The school tries to support the students when tragedies like this occur, Ms. Kelley said. At morning announcements Tuesday, they held a moment of silence for Margarito and his family and counselors are available to talk to students or just to give them an extra hug. Teachers are very upset as well. “Nobody wants to believe it’s true,” she added. She recalled Margarito as a faLHS suffers loss of another student It’s time for a Southern Night in LaBelle the annual LaBelle Chamber of Commerce Giveaway.

GRAND OPENING! MARCH 27863-674-1220 220 South Industrial Loop, LaBelle, FL 2 Caloosa Belle March 21, 2013in the Concentration Camps unfortunately w ere not found until after the liberation. They do, however, show rst hand not only the misery and hardships, but also the dignity and spirit of those imprisoned. Liberation forces at the camps uncovered thousands of drawings left by both adults and children portraying the daily life inside the prisons. Most of the authors will forever remain unnamed, but all cannot be forgotten. It is through these testaments that the truth of the atrocities has come to light. Another dimension in the study of the Holocaust is the propaganda machine that the Nazis used to rationalize the treatment and eventual extermination of the Jews. The Nazis used art to create an image of the Jews as a threat to Germany. Through newsreels, posters and political cartoons, the Nazis waged a systematic campaign to dehumanize the Jews living in Germany and Europe. The Holocaust in WordsOne of the earliest Holocaust novels is Der Totenwald: ein Bericht (German, 1945) by Ernst Wiechert. Wiechert was a non-Jewish German sent to the Buchanwald Concentration Camp for criticizing the Nazi regime. The novel provided a rst person depiction of the camps well before the Holocaust entered the public consciousness. Other notable Holocaust ction is: Exodus by Leon Uris, a novelization of the Warsaw uprising in 1943. The Pawnbroker (1961) by Edward Lewis Wallant. A Holocaust survivor makes comparisons between his new life in Harlem and haunting memories of the camps. Eva: A novel of the Holocaust (1959) by Meyer Levin. A Jewish woman recalls her experiences passing as a Christian in Ukraine, her eventual capture and deportation to Auschwitz. The Diary of a Young Girl (1947) by Anne Frank. Arguably the most well-known written account of the Holocaust. Night (2006) by Ellie Weisel. A terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horrors that turns a young Jewish man into an agonized witness to the death of his family. Children of the Flames (1991) by Lucette Lagnato. Nazi Doctor Josef Mengele subjected some 3,ooo twins to medical experiments of unspeakable horrors, of which only 160 survived. This book accounts these atrocities.Through the eye of the lensPlace and time: Rural Poland Daytime A train backs slowly along the tracks toward an arched gatehouse. The women inside the cattle cars don't need a sign to tell them where they are. They've seen this place in nightmares. Pillars of dark smoke rise from the stacks into the sky. It's Auschwitz. Shindler's List, Screenplay by Steven Zaillian (1993) Since 1945, over 350 movies and documentaries have been made about the Holocaust. One of the rst feature lms that included footage from the concentration camps was "The Stranger "(1946) by Orson Welles. Believed to be the rst Holocaust drama is "Ostatni etap" (1948, Poland) by Wanda Jakubowska. Among the award winning lms about the Holocaust are: The Diary of Anne Frank (1959), winner of three Academy Awards (Best Supporting Actress-Shelly Winters, Best Cinematography and Best Set Design). Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) based on made for television drama, one Academy award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Sophie's Choice (1982) won Best Actress Oscar (Meryl Streep). Based on the book by William Styron. Genocide (1982) won Academy award for Best Documentary Feature. War and Remembrance (1988) based on the novel by Herman Wouk, won three Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Miniseries. Schindler's List (1993) won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Based on the book by Thomas Keneally. The Last Days (1998) won an Academy award for Best Documentary Feature. Foreign lms that have won awards include; Life is Beautiful (Italy, 1997), winner of three Academy awards (Best ActorRoberto Beligni, Best Musical Score and Best Foreign Language Film); The Pianist, based on the book by Wladyslaw Szpilman (France/Poland, 2002), winner of three Academy awards (Best Actor-Adrien Brody, Best Director-Roman Polanski and Best Adapted Screenplay); The Reader, based on the book by Bernhard Schlink (England, 2008), winner of one Academy award for Best Actress-Kate Winslet. The plight of Jews was not the only subject matter of lms about the Holocaust. In 1991, the lm Purple Triangles described the accounts of Jehovah's Witnesses in the Nazi camps. The 1985 lm, Novembermond (Germany/France) is a drama about two lesbians in occupied France. Paragraph 175 (2000) was about Gays and the Holocaust. In 1972, Jerry Lewis made a lm called The Day the Clown Cried. In this movie, he portrayed a circus clown imprisoned in the Nazi concentration camps. This lm wasnever shown to the general public. Continued next week vorite of teachers and students alike. He was a supporter of Cowboy athletics. He had lots of friends across grades, she said, "Everybody loved him." "A personable kid" you never saw without a smile. He was working hard to graduate. Ms. Kelley was unsure of what his plans were after graduation. She recalled that h e had two sisters who graduated from LHS previously and that he came from a ver y nice family. It was a shock to the students and teachers, especially after the crash earlier this yea r that took the life of another LHS senior, Rya n Hellard. "This comes just two months exactly after we lost Ryan," she commented. The Class of 2013 has suffered a lot of loss, including the 2006 death of Cheyenne Johnson, just 11 years old at that time.

Summer Internsby Matt KindermannThe Workforce Investment Act of 1998 is the law that stipulates how federal dollars are spent training the workforce. This law effects what training programs are available to people meetings certain criterion, what vocational schools consider for program availability, and what incentives employers are eligible for when hiring disadvantaged job seekers. Read the law at www.doleta.gov/programs/factsht/wialaw.cfm. The law mandates that 10 percent of the budget be set aside for youth services, which includes the payroll for several paid youth internships during the summer months. These interns are offered to local businesses at no charge for up to 30 hours a week, for a maximum of 6 weeks during the period when school is out for the summer. These interns are especially interested in local opportunities to work with employers in the healthcare, information technology, and cosmetology industries. Although, any employer that is willing to sponsor an intern is encouraged to contact the Youth Coordinator, Kerwyn Dixon at kdixon@sw works.org, or at 863-2338287. The intent of the internship program is to expose youth to the experiences of the labor market. Through mentorship and on the job training they can experience rsthand the importance of being on time, working a set shift according to a schedule, how to conduct themselves around customers, and what to expect from an employer. More information on the Youth Program can be found at www.sw works.org/ services/youth-services/. Southwest Florida Works is the regional state workforce board for Hendry, Glades, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties. For no-fee job search assistance or employer support, speak with an employment representative nearest you by going to www.sw works.org and click on "Locations." Matt Kindermann "I'll tell ya how to stay younghang around with older people."Bob Hope For many seniors, giving someone a status update often involves inventorying aches, injuries and doctor's appointments. But the "status update" is taking on an entirely different meaning now that more seniors are logging on to Facebookand enjoying the reported health bene ts. Apparently, Facebook can make seniors smarter. (The results of such studies involving Facebook and high school seniors weren't available at time of printingbut we suspect the conclusions would contrast greatly.) Researchers at the University of Arizona conducted a study that showed seniors with Facebook training demonstrating better cognitive performance than those without. Red Orbit reports the experiment involved 14 seniors aged 68 to 91 who never if rarely used Facebook. One group received Facebook training and was asked to "friend" only fellow study group participants and post updates daily. A second group was told they were on a wait list for Facebook training, and instead asked to keep short entries of daily activities at an online diary. Afterward, all participants underwent questionnaires and neuropsychological tests measuring "loneliness, social support and cognitive abilities." During follow-up testing two months later, the Facebook group showed a 25-percent better performance of cognitive abilities than the other study participants. The study aimed to explore how the vibrancy of one's social life can positively impact cognitive activity later in life. One student researcher credited the dynamic qualities of Facebook with demanding greater engagement than the static online counterpart. "When you create an online diary, you create the entry, you save it and that's all you see," Janelle Wohitmann reportedly said, "versus if you're on Facebook, several people are posting new things, so new information is constantly getting posted." Crossword puzzles just can't compete. Hopefully, study participants unknowingly assigned to the ctitious Facebook training waiting list eventually got the teaching the y desired, as social media training is drawing seniors in droves. "It's something we have a lot of demand for," Tammy Gordon, vice president of social communication at AARP, told CNBC.com. "We've been doing a ton of training over the last two years and we're ramping it up even more." The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project nds that more than half of seniors aged 65 and older are no w online and 34 percent of those internet users regularly visit social media sites like Facebook. Whenever large groups of seniors take initinative to learn new technologies that challenge their comfort zones and gro w their minds, it's a wonderful trend. (Speaking of trends, AARP is trending on Twitter with more than 60,000 followers!) Another trend is more disquieting. The American Academy of Neurology projects that if current numbers hold, by 2050 more nearly 14 million American will suffer from Alzheimer's disease and dementia. So if engaging seniors in Facebook and another other social interactionswhether online or in-person, like the VNA of Florida's new Silver Socialites program that organizes outings and provides transportation so seniors can have fun and make friends somehow helps lift their spirits and strengthen their mind, maybe this trend can be reversed. After all, when it comes to aging healthfully, you can never have too many "friends."
