Denaud fatality A 30-year-old LaBelle man died A pril 8 in a one-vehicle crash on Ft. Deanud Road. Three others sustained minor injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Arturo Martinez Vicente, 30, of LaBelle was driving a 2008 Dodge Durango west of Fort Denaud Road at a high rate of speed. He failed to maintain his lane and began to leave the roadway on the north side, struck a garbage can refuse cart and traveled onto the north shoulder. He then struck a ditch culvert, became airborne, struck a chain link fence, tree and contined to be airborne while traveling over the entire width of Matthew Creek. The Durango then struck several trees on the opposite side of the creek before coming to a nal rest lodged between several trees, partially suspended with its right side off the ground and facing west. The three passengers: Por rio Hernandez, 24, Jose Hernandez, 30, and Aburto Corona, age unknown, all from LaBelle, were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. Mr. Vicente and Mr. Hernandez, w ere wearing seatbelts. The other v ictims were not. Jeannie Horlacher is a former Edison State College History Professor. Horlacher graduated from California State University, Northridge and the University of Oklahoma as a History major with minors in the History of American Indians, and the History of American Women.Besides both loving and hating history, Horlacher enjoyed being a newspaper editor, a behind-the-scenes participant in children theatre, and a volunteer with many civic groups. She currently participates as a docent with the LaBelle Heritage Museum. Horlacher lives in Ft. Denaud with her husband, and they both love and miss all of their children and grandchildren.When the rst events of the Holocaust began, in 1933, no one imagined what it would become. Even those who lived through its earliest days could not imagine, let alone believe, the horror that it became. Today, those of us who have learned about the Holocaust from schools, books and stories struggle to imagine the extent of that horror, and yes, we too, have dif culty believing that such a thing could really have happened. But it did happen. Millions of people; men, women and children, died. Millions were Jews; millions were not. All, however, were victims, to some degree, of negative prejudice, from just not liking them' for one reason or another, to the most extreme form of negative prejudice --hatred. There is nothing good in any degree of negative prejudice, and the only good that will ever come from the tragic history of the Holocaust has to start with understanding why and ho w the horrible powers of negative prejudice will have nothing but horrible results! Negative prejudice can attack every human, civil and political right we have. It threatens everything that is important to us, including our lives.

A Clewiston woman died April 3 in a twov ehicle crash on US 27 west of CR 720. Martha Prado, 37, was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Francisco Prado Garcia, 42, was driving a 2004 Ford Explorer east on US 27, west of CR 720 and following a 2009 Nissan Murano. The Explorer failed to observe the Nissan ahead and attempted to take evasive action to avoid it. The front left of the Explorer struck the right rear of the Nissan, driven by Berta Alicia Villafuerte of Moore Haven, age 27, which began to rotate counter clockw ise ahead of the Explorer. Mr. Garcia lost control of his Explorer causing the left front portion of his vehicle to strike the rear portion of the Nissan a second time. The Nissan entered the grassy median and overturned, coming to a nal rest on its roof, facing in a northwest direction. The Explorer began to rotate n a counter clockwise motion after the second impact. The Explorer overturned and rotated clockw ise, coming to a nal rest upright and facing south. Ms. Prado was ejected from the Explorer and pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Prado sustained serious injuries and was transported to Hendry Regional Hospital. Other passengers in the Explorer, foury ear-old Rodrigo Prado and one-year-old Daniel Prado, both of Clewiston, sustained minor injuries. The adults were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Ms. Villafuerte sustained serious injuries and her passenger, Melissa Kay Bryant, 27, also of Moore Haven, suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to Hendry Regional Medical Center. Both had been wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.Fatality on 833In another fatal crash that took place at 8:37 p.m. March 30 on CR 833 east of CR 846, Darren Jim, 18, of Clewiston died. He w as driving a 2000 Polaris ATV westbound in the eastbound lane of CR 833. Another v ehicle, a 2011 Ford F-150, driven by Manuel Mondo Tiger, 53, of Clewiston was eastbound at the same time. The two collided head-on, which redirected the ATV into the westbound lane, which came to nal rest partially in the eastbound lane and partially on the north shoulder. Mr. Tiger lost control of his vehicle, which departed the roadway. and came to a nal rest against a barbed wire fence on the south grassy shoulder of CR 833.

George Carlin is not a person I routinely read or watched on Saturday Night Live when I was studying theology in Bible College during the mid-1970’s. I was familiar with him, but I didn’t care much for what he was identi ed w ith back then. Either he made some shifts, or I did probably a little of both! but in his later years I had a different opinion of the man. While I still maintain a conservative Christian world-view and give allegiance to the standards of Biblical doctrine, I have a “bit more room” in my toleration-level for the likes of Carlin than I have had in previous years. The following is a piece he wrote. Someone sent me in an email. At my rst reading I thought, “Not bad, Georgie.” After putting it “on ice” for a few months, I decided to thaw it out and include it in the article this week. I hope it causes you to think and review some things. It certainly did that for me. Here’s George Carlin: The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, y et more problems, more medicine, but less w ellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things. We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep pro ts and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete... Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent. Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. And always remember… Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80 across the street from City Hall. 4 Caloosa Belle April 11, 2013 To Reach UsMailing Address: P.O.

De ne yourself, your job and your futureby Matt KindermannDue to a recent opportunity, I am very saddened to report that this article will be my last, but I am grateful for being able to shed some light on employment related issues over the last two years. For this last article I thought we should look at possibly the most important characteristic in getting hired, and ways to ensure you create your own lasting value to an employer. Many people have personally experienced, or heard friends talk about, that ideal job where the skills, experience, and perks all aligned for one perfect opportunity. Then, mysteriously, the employer decides to hire someone else. What gives? Employers write job descriptions based on the skills and education required to do the job. Although, employers often hire for t, and train for skill. Fit, otherwise known as personality or character, cannot be described in a job order. Resume writing, applications, and interviewing is like dating. It looks like a good t at rst when everything is new, but after a while it just doesn’t feel right. Job seekers have to approach job hunting as if they were on a series of rst dates. In fact, if you are in the market for a job, you have to be in “ rst date mode” along each step in the process. Once you reach exclusivity, and are offered the job, you still have to prove that you are an asset. Each day at work, try to ask yourself “how can this be done better,” or “what else can I do?” This is not a suggestion to take on additional responsibilities, but a call to discover different ways of doing things. For example, conduct an internet search for Dave Kerpen and read about his rst job working as a part time concession person on commission. His rst night at work he earned $15 selling 12 boxes of popcorn. The next night, he started doing a little dance and calling out “popcorn” in funny ways, doubling his sales. By the time he graduated college, he was selling 300 boxes of popcorn and earning about $500 a night! Think of your daily assignments as a honey-do list, and be aware of all those “little things” that add up to “big things” like leaving your area a mess, or not putting your supplies away when you are nished. You can ensure your lasting value, making you an indispensable asset, through creatively making your daily routine unique, fun to be around, and more pro table, just like Dave Kerpen; Dave is now CEO of Likeable Media, a New York Times bestselling author, motivational speaker, and contributor to major business periodicals such as Forbes, and Inc Magazine.

Yeomans Ave. LaBelle 863-675-2015www.spectaculareye.com 5 Caloosa Belle A pril 11, 2013make it personal, so, to that end, take some time to think about the things that are important to us. Our families, our friends, our faith, our culture, these are our treasures, but what protects them? Laws? To some degree, yes, but we all know that although we can create laws, we can’t legislate respect. We can enforce the law when someone tries to harm, destroy or take away our right to be who we are, but that doesn’t really offer us the protection we need. Learning the “why” that motivates people to harm others, just because they’re “different,” is where we have to start, and that is why it is important to remember events such as the Holocaust. The negative prejudice that drove the Holocaust rst targeted the Jews, then it spread to other groups, Roman Catholics (including priests), Poles, Russians, gypsies, gays, Jehovah Witnesses, the physically impaired, the in rm elderly, the ‘politically incorrect’, the poor, and the rich (unless their support was solidly behind the Nazi goal to build a “pure race”), and more – many, many more! All of these people had the same treasures that we have --families, friends, their faith and their culture. Could what happened to them happen to us? Today? Yes. It can, and it does. Can we protect ourselves against such a thing? Yes, we can. We can protect our right to be who we are by learning about the differences among us, and respecting our rights to be different. By doing that, we protect not only others, but we protect ourselves as w ell. Easy to say, right? But is it easy to do? No. It’s dif cult to do, but it’s possible, and we have the power to do it. Each one of us has the personal power to collectively, all of us together, have a national impact. Start by doing some personal soul-searching. Nothing is stronger than our ability to hate! Nothing. Not even our ability to love. Ironically, hate is our weakest link, both personally and nationally, but it’s strong enough to destroy our ability to love! In the case of the Holocaust, it dominated sentiment throughout the entire Western World to the extent that it extinguished over 11 million lives! Who were these victims? We didn’t know them! We only knew what their persecutors wanted us to know, yet, many of us found ourselves admiring the persecutors, or at the very least, justifying their crime because we believed what they told us! The victims were Jews, gypsies, gays, Catholics, doctors, lawyers, bankers, grocers, teachers, young, old, healthy, in rm, poor, rich! Nationally, Germans, Italians, Albanians, Danes, Fins, French, Greek, Dutch, Hungarians, Lithuanians, Norse, Poles, Czechs, Russians and Yugoslavians were among over 30 nationalities targeted during the Holocaust. Most of us know only about the Jews who died in the Holocaust. They didn’t live up to Adolf Hitler’s dream for a nation of strong, as-close-to-perfect, human beings, who would systematically take over Europe and reign supreme! But Hitler’s estimation of a person’s value wasn’t limited to targeting the Jews. He master-minded the elimination of millions of people whom he hated, and he was encouraged by many more who hated them, too! Hitler claimed to be God-driven: “In standing guard against the Jew I am defending the handiwork of the Lord….I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.”* Ironically, as each Holocaust victim died, so did their knowledge, their skills and their potential. Some of the very things that, in fact, build strong nations! Who is on our hate list today? Sadly, many of the groups who were on Hitler’s list are on our lists, too. Why? What do we really know about them? And, of what we think we know, how much is true? Yes, we have ‘bad’ people among us, but ‘bad’ isn’t exclusive to any group! It transcends everything – nationality, ethnicity, social and economic standing, religion, profession. Hating people just because they’re different is bad! Actually, it’s more than bad – it’s deadly! People are not ‘bad’ just because they’re Jews, Muslim, Black, Hispanic or anything else, and they don’t deserve to die just for being who they are! Fortunately, there were people who knew that. The Holocaust was hate-motivated, but there were many people who witnessed the harm it produced and they would not be led. Because of their goodness and bravery, many lives were not lost! Many of these heroes were everyday people. They didn’t know the victims an y more than we knew them, but their compassion, and their love for human dignit y drove them. They, too, are part of the most important lessons of the Holocaust: Holocaust survivors are products of love! Love is strong. It allows us to respect each other, and it drives us to do grand, marvelous deeds together. Hate drives us, too, but there are no hatedriven deeds that deserve our respect, personally or nationally. Let’s not perpetuate the destructive sentiment of the Holocaust; let’s be the heroes! Remember the Holocaust and don’t let it happen, again! *Mein Kampf, Vol 1, ch 2. LessonsContinued From Page 1

Many local business people would buy one or two paintings almost every time Al Black came through LaBelle in the 1960s and 1970s since they were not only eye catching but easily affordable at their original prices, usually under $45. Art critics usually ignored these African American artists notwithstading their popularity with the public and the growing number of their paintings displayed in local of ces and residences throughout Southwest Florida until the 1990s when they were “discovered” and given the name “Highwaymen” in recognition of their marketing practice of going up and down South Florida highways and stopping to sell their paintings wherever they saw groups of of ces and stores where there were possible buyers. Some of the early Highwaymen paintings have commanded prices 1,000 percent higher than their original cost, and many imitators have attempted to cash in on their fame. Al Black visited with some 50 visitors at LaBelle Heritage Museum, sold some autographed copies of the latest book about him as well as both original Al Black framed paintings and prints. He captivated his audience with his personality as well as with his art. When Black, his wife and 13 year-old daughter packed up for their trip back to Fort Pierce, he told museum president Joe Thomas that he looks forward to being invited back to participate in future retropectives of Highwaymen art.

Under the Gun Tattoo and Art Gallery is a focal point for tattoo enthusiasts, like owner Lucas Pratt. His excitement for his craft is infectious. Lucas, with the help and support of his family and ance, Krystie, nally has his dream shop. It took months of planning and work, but he and partnerand co-owner Chris “Casper” Buendia, are creating things of beauty that will last a lifetime. Casper has ten years experience in the tattoo industry, working on Main Street in Orlando. Lucas calls him “very artistic” and a “big asset.” Lucas, himself, has been tattooing for four years but wanted to be a certi ed professional. Apprentiships are usually expsensive and take a long time. Lucas didn’t have the time to go through the entire process, so he took every seminar he could in person and online, working toward his goal for 1.5 y ears till he thought he was ready. Now he and Casper are both fully certied tattoo artists with all their health requirements up to date. Enhancing his depth of art, Lucas took graphic design at Tallahassee Community College and also painting seminars. He said he is taking advantage of all the technology of his generation, including using Facebook to help ihim launch his business. Lucas said his shop is “like nothing else” you’ll nd light on the ego. You won’t nd the stereotypical “attitude” of tattoo parlors and tattoo artists there. He’s con dent you’ll have a great experience at his shop comparable or even better than in Fort Myers same quality at a better price. He takes care to explain to his clients just what they can expect, uses his experience and knowledge and invites the customer’s input into the nished product. A devout Christian and down-to-earth hometown boy, he said his shop re ects himself and his neighbors’ attitudes and atmosphere. Lucas wouldn’t have it any other way. Casper, also a LaBelle native, may look a little rough, but he’s really just an artist totally into his work. Both are in the process of becoming certi ed to do piercings as well and expect to be completely set up for it in the coming months. Although both men are highly skilled, Casper is more into new school, big colorful, bold tattoos. For his part, Lucas said he’s getting more into realism. Lucas wishes to offer special thanks to former mayor Paul Puletti for helping him navigate the process of city zoning while he was in of ce. He is also grateful for all the work and support his family, including his parents, Dwayne and Renee Pratt, and Uncle Harold James Curtis, put into the shop. That includes muscle power like building walls and creative work like painting as well as moral support. Tatoos are not the only special services Lucas and Casper offer at the shop. They also offer designer shoes and hats. And you won’t believe what else “Tattoos” aren’t just for people any more. Lucas decorated the complete top half of Shone Phillips’ Ford F350 in Sharpie drawings all in freehand, and covered it with clear coat. Art is the focal point of Lucas’ life. He says he’ll do anything in art and graphic design. His love of art took off with former teacher and mentor Jim Foutch, whose art you will nd covering the walls all on consignment. Tattoos have a bad rep a criminal stereotype but it’s really just another way to enjoy art, Lucas explains. It’s art you’ll be wearing on your skin for the rest of your life, so he and Casper make sure it’s done right. Under the Gun is open noon to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday and by appointments as well. Lucas understands that tattoos are a luxury, especially in these tight nancial times. But, he believes, that every now and then it’s good for the soul to splurge a little. Check out the art gallery on the walls o f the shop. More of Jim Foutch’s art will be hanging there in the coming months. Not only does it dress up the shop, it’s there for art lovers looking for the right piece for their own of ce or home. At just 23 years of age, Lucas wants to help out the town that helped him. His way is to do it through his art. Under the Gun Tattoo and Art Studio is located at 283 S. Bridge Street. Call 863-6740087 for more informaiton.
