Offer ends 04/01/13 Thursday, March 28, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No.13 Moore Haven, Fla., (March 22, 2013) – With the decision by international developer Panattoni Development Company to market and develop Americas Gatewa y Logistics Center in Moore Haven, the master planned, 6,700-acre, international intermodal logistics center is being prepared for tenants and to generate new jobs in southern Florida. Planned for 40 million square feet of manufacturing and distribution facilities on 4,700 acres, with an additional 2,000 acres available for assembly plants, Americas Gateway Logistics Center will provide international and domestic manufacturers and distributors ample space and cost-effective and ef cient access to growing domestic and emerging global markets. (More information can be found online at www.americasgateway. us.) A recently commissioned job creation study determined that the realization of Americas Gatewa y has the potential to create a signi cant number of direct, indirect and induced jobs within southern Florida – as many as 4,300-plus direct jobs, by the year 2018. Positive reception of plans for the center from both domestic and international interests prompted Lykes Bros. Inc. and A. Duda & Sons, Inc., two of Florida’s wellknown, family-owned land companies, to formalize their agreement to implement the plans. Mark Morton, senior vice president of Lykes Logistics center to open This is a continuation of Joel Hawkins’ piece on arts of the Holocaust.Lost music of the HolocaustOne of the greatest tragedies of the Holocaust, in terms of art, is the music that must have been created by countless composers but lost to history. Many musicians were among those imprisoned in the concentration camps. The known musicians, like other artists and craftsman, were often forced to compose and play music under the orders of the camp commanders. Evidence brought forth by survivors of the camps reveals a rich legacy of spontaneously written music by prisoners. One of the most notable victims of the camps was Pavel Haas, a Czech, who had great success until the German occupation of Czechoslovakia when he was deported to Terezin. While there, he participated in musical activities. In 1944 he was transferred to Auschwitz where he was killed in the gas chambers. Another was Rudolf Karel, another Czech who studied and later taught at the Prague Conservatory. In 1943, he was arrested by the Gestapo and jailed. While in prison, Karel composed many works, including an opera titled The Three Hairs of the Wise Old Man. A prison warden secretly supplied him with toilet paper glued together and he was able to write his music down. These works were subsequently smuggled out of the prison. Karel was transferred to Terezin in 1945 where he died of dysentery a month later. Born on July 4, 1897, in Poland, Carlo Sigmund Taube studied piano in Vienna and made a career playing in Vienna, Brno and Prague. In 1941, he and his family were deported to Terezin. There he held concerts of popular and classical music, composed chamber music and formed the Taube Orchestra. In 1944, he died while imprisoned at Auschwitz. Italian musicologist, Francesco Lotoro has catalogued and recorded all the music produced during World War II. The result is a CD encyclopedia called KZ Musik containing all known music composed in concentrations camps during World War II in Europe, North Africa and Asia. Yesterday’s Shadows: Art of the Holocaust Two young men died in a crash on A Road March 22. The crash occurred at 2;28 a.m. According to the Florida Highw ay Patrol, three men were traveling eastbound on A road in a 2003 Cadillac CTS when it traveled onto the south shoulder into a ditch The front right of the vehicle struck the embankment and caused the vehicle to overturn.

Center From Page 1 A rt Continued From Page 1 In 2007, produced by Musikstrasse and in conjunction with Lotoro, the documentary Musica Concentrationaria premiered in Rome at the international conference of the same name. The project lled the gap in music history of Europe, and ampli ed the importance of remembering the unspeakable events of the holocaust.On the stageThe live theatrical stage has always been a superb outlet in which to hold up a mirror to human behavior. Going back to the days of Greek theater, plays have painted an image of tragedy and triumph in countless ways. The Elizabethan Theater was alight with tales of the atrocities and tragedies of the human condition. There has been no time in our history that has not been translated for the masses quite like the stage. The story of the Holocaust is no exception. But the dilemma of producing stories about the Holocaust for the stage has been a commercial one. Plays about the Holocaust have not been known for their commercial successes. While garnering strong reviews, most Broadway-bound productions have not had box of ce fortune. The depressing subject matter has made it hard to draw large audiences. The most notable exception to the rule is Abby Mann’s Judgment at Nuremberg. Originally written as a play, it was adapted as a live television drama in 1959 and an Oscar w inning movie in 1961. But did not receive its Broadway debut until 2001 at which time it was nominated for two Tony awards. Bent is a play written in 1979 by Martin Sherman about the persecution of Gays during the Holocaust. Sir Ian McKellen starred in the original London production and Richard Gere starred in the 1980 Broadway production. Good (1982) was written by Cecil Phillip Taylor. The play explores the causes of the Holocaust rather than the consequences, but the implications are just as chilling. A movie adaptation made in 2008 starred Viggo Mortenson. Playing for Time (1985) by Arthur Miller. Based on a true story, orchestra musicians were forced to create a musical background to calm people on their nal walk to the gas chamber. Vanessa Redgrave stars. Other plays do not readily identify the Holocaust but evoke the descriptions and re ections of that singular event. One such play was Harold Pinter’s Ashes to Ashes (1996). While it does not directly mention the Holocaust or the Nazis, the images are clearly that of the camps and the horrors they contained. Fortunately, remembrance of the Holocaust and its aftermath live on in the form of literally thousands of short one-act plays designed for educational purposes. Suitable for students of all ages, many of these theatrical productions are performed throughout schools and other venues around the world every year. They may not be commercial successes but the message they provide is priceless.

Glades County Sheriff’s deputies are inv estigating the theft of numerous items from several hunting camps in Muse on Lykes Brothers property in the area known as Rainy Slough.

Search Engine Optimizationby Matt KindermannSearch Engine Optimization (SEO) is THE buzzword in the marketing world, and whether you are a business owner or a job seeker, you should know this topic upside-down and sideways. SEO is the strategy of ensuring your resume or business appears in the top results of an internet search. When you use Google, Yahoo or Bing to conduct a search for something, results are listed in order based on a number of factors, including the number of keywords you used in your search and how often those keywords are included on the website or webpage. According to statistics posted by the Search Engine Journal, SEO (sometimes referred to as content marketing) is a $16 billion industry, and that 75% of on-line searches never search beyond the rst page of results. Think about the last time you searched the internet for something; how often do you scroll through page after page of results before re ning the words you used to search? Now, imagine you are an employer looking through hundreds of resumes; how many electronic resumes do you search through to nd the right one when they are automatically sorted according to the keywords in your job description? SEO is not really a high-tech skill and can be used strategically by anyone using the internet. Ensure that the resume you post on-line is in Microsoft Word format, not PDF or Microsoft Works, to ensure that the words you used are effectively recognized by search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo, Bing). Then, use as many of the key words or key phrases from the job description in your own resume. Next, check your electronic footprint, such as your Facebook or LinkedIn page, and incorporate those same keywords/phrases are duplicated there. Sites that include blogs or updates, such as Twitter, will add keywords to your page and increase SEO. This is why many companies have blog pages or customer testimonials, because they increase SEO for free. Having LinkedIn contacts or Facebook friends make positive, job-related comments about you on your social media sites will increase your SEO results. SEO is the one of the main reason why you need separate resumes for each type of job you are applying for.

Matt Kindermann Mark's account of the Resurrection includes two small words that make all the difference. He begins by recounting the women who came to the tomb to anoint our Lord's body for burial. To their amazement they found the tomb empty and an angelic being at the tomb, who announced the resurrection. The angel informs them that the Lord is not there, but He is risen. Then, he says, "But go, tell His disciples-and Peter-that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you" (Mark 16:7 emphasis mine). Do you see those two words that make all the difference? "and Peter"? If you really think about it, there is a sense in which we can say, "that is the gospel in two words." Why would the Lord emphasis this comment in the midst of this angelic message. One might have expected words of antagonism. "Go and tell His disciples-and Pontius Pilate or Herod or Cephas" or any of the others who played a part in His indictment and conviction. Or perhaps one might have expected to nd words of appreciation. "Go and tell the disciples and John." After all, John had been there at the cross with the mother of Jesus when all the others had forsaken and ed. In this same vein of appreciation he could have added the names of Nicodemus or Joseph of Arimathea or Andrew or any number of others. However, "and Peter" were not words of antagonism nor appreciation. Rather, these were words of affection. Our Lord knew Peter's heart. Peter had denied the Lord in his hour of testing and he was in dire need of a word of encouragement, a new beginning, a second chance. Easter weekend is the message of the second chance. Many of us are faced with setbacks or sorrows. Yet on Easter morning we nd hope, a new start, a new life, a new opportunity, and a new beginning. These two little words-"and Peter"-reveal that the second chance is possible! How is this possible? Because of the Resurrection. If there were no Resurrection of our Lord there would be no Gospel, no good news, no new beginning. Those two words"and Peter"-came like water to a man dying of thirst. Peter thought the Lord would disown him. He had failed so miserably. The Bible is the story of men and women who received a second chance. When it came time to deliver a nation, who of us would have picked a murderer? But God did. Moses had blown it. Forty years on the backside of a desert prepared him to be the emancipator of his people. When the Lord spoke to him from a burning bush, he knew the second chance was possible. And what about the fellow that was so full of lust? Who of us would have ever said that a guy like that could have a heart after God's own heart? However, when we read King David's prayer of repentance in Psalm 51 we see that a second chance is possible. And what about Jonah? We all know his story well and remember how "the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time" (Jon. 3:1). He too found that a second chance was possible. It is important to remember, before Simon Peter heard these two words he had gone out and "wept bitterly." When the rooster crowed the coming dawn after his denial, his heart was broken as he was reminded o f his sin. How long were his sleepless nights thinking of his cowardice and failure? Simon Peter denied that he even knew the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, his heart was broken. Can you imagine what he must have felt when he heard the angelic message? Repentance makes the second chance is possible. Judas did not get it because he did not repent. The rich young ruler didn't get it. He was remorseful and went away "sorrowful" but there's no record that he ever repented. Pontius Pilate regretted his evil deed, but we know nothing of his repentance. This truth of a second chance is for men and women like Simon Peter who have repented, who have recognized their sin and wept bitterly over it. The Lord Jesus did not have a private meeting Peter because he was a big sinner and guilty but because he was penitent and sorrowful. It was not his cursing and denial that brought him mercy. Rather, it was his tears. There's no hope for the second chance for one who is simply sorry he got caught but only for that one with truly repentant and broken heart. There are not many second chances that exist in the world. The good news is that with God there's always an opportunity for second chance. The message from the angels clear: "be sure and tell Peter that he is not out, he gets to bat again!" For Peter, and other like him the hope o f Easter is centered in the Resurrection. Because of that, our failure doesn't make a op. It means a new life, a new start, a beginning again. Yes, the second chance is possible.

They presented two checks: one for $525 on behalf of the GGCA and one for $100 from camp ground owners Nick and Paul Swartz. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle At the March meeting of the LaBelle City Commission, Kenny Kinney suggested that the city revisit its residential zoning with regard to mobile homes, saying anyone can put in a mobile home with an engineer’s seal and minor changes. That does not meet the spirit of LaBelle’s zoning, he said. A lot of mobile homes are well cared for and the city needs mixed residential, but should not go backward. When the door is opened to used mobile homes, Mr. Kinney said the city ends up with problems. The request to voluntarily annex property on Cowboy Way across from LaBelle Elementary School was approved. The property is used to build a bakery. The attending requests for a small scale comprehensive plan amendment and to change the zoning from Hendry County residential high density to LaBelle business general were also approved.Code enforcementThe city commission is working on providing two procedures to deal with code citations. An ordinance to allow for both judicial and an administrative magistrate was read for the rst time at the meeting. It will come up for passage next month. The idea is to streamline the process and make it more efcient.In other business:Staff will look into allowing volunteers to drive golf carts on city roads to pick up trash in residential areas. Mike Zimmerly approached the board about the project. It will require a city ordinance to override a state statute. The commissioners unanimously approved new non-exclusive franchise for Teco Peoples Gas to extend gas lines into the city, using city rights-of-way. The next regular city commission meeting will be April 11. Code enforcement on front burner

Are we ashamed to tell the people what’s going on? I wanna know,” exclaimed Niel Reddish at the March 14 Hendry County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting. “And are you folks going to decide it yourselves? Or is it already decided?” The discussion of Airglades Airport, located here in Hendry County and owned by the BOCC, quickly turned into confusion regarding whether or not residents knew the entire truth of the matter. “I think the transparency here, on the airport, should be a little better,” began Reddish. “I guarantee you that anybody other than you folks don’t really know what’s going on. To sell it? There’s all kinds of controversy going on with that. Do we give it to [U.S.] Sugar and guarantee so many jobs? People’d like that, but now I understand that may not be true; that they’re not going to guarantee any jobs and may pay us something else. So, the question comes up: the Sunshine Law [being violated] here?” The BOCC is currently in the process of receiving bids for the purchase of Airglades, some of which exceed $20 million. However, Reddish quickly went over his time allotted to speak on the subject, which prompted Chairman Karson Turner to ask him to move on to his next subject. “I believe the man [should] be able to talk,” said Commissioner Don Davis. Shortly after, Reddish moved on to the next topic: the empty county administrator position. “This is something that you don’t like to touch because it’s powerful,” he began. “Everybody’s talking about how you can’t make up your mind here, and it doesn’t look good for the commission or for the county.” Previously BOCC members went through a selection process to narrow down candidates for the county administrator position, which became available nearly six months ago. However, after narrowing down the candidates to the top two nalists, commissioners decided that they wanted to re-bid the position, not completely satis ed with those they had spoken with. Phillip Roland, Mayor of Clewiston wanted to revive the Airglades discussion. “I’d like to say one thing about the airport,” began Mayor Roland. “I think that if we check the records, back through 60 years, there has never been a dollar that the county has got from Airglades to spend in Hendry County. It doesn’t happen. All of the money has always had to go back and be spent on Airglades, and that’s not talked about a lot. The last two or three years, I think Hendry County has spent money on Airglades. “I don’t know how much money, but I think there’s been money out of the general fund spent on Airglades and you can’t do that. You just absolutely can’t do it. On the jobs, for the cost of Airglades I think makes sense. If you’re guaranteed jobs over a certain number of years, absolutely! You can give it away and make money for Hendry County through the taxpayers, through jobs, through other avenues.” Chairman Turner responded, easing Mayor Roland’s concerns. “I will make the argument that some o f the taxes that we take in for Airglades -I’ve always heard that too Mayor Roland -that no money ever leaves that airport, but that’s not true. The lease payments, some of the ad valorem taxes that are paid to Airglades ... go back into general fund.” Another item brought to Commissioners by Chairman Turner was the idea of a meeting that Tammy Hall, Lee County commissioner, thought would be bene cial to the BOCC. “At last Friday’s County Coalition for Responsible Management of Lake Okeechobee [we] got up on a bit of a soap box about some of the issues and the fact that we get beat over the head for not seeing productivity from the district on the Herbert Hoover Dike or the C43 Resevoir,” stated Turner. “We thought it would be a good idea to have a joint meeting between Hendry, Glades and Lee county commissioners.” Commissioners agreed, with Mayor Roland wanting the municipalities of Hendr y County to be included.
