Thursday, April 4, 2013 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 90 No. 14 by Savannah Rounddssrounds@newszap.com “I know exactly what people are doing,” stated Hendry County Judge James D. Sloan. “They are getting their jury summons in the mail and saying ‘Oh, look, jury duty,’ and throwing it into the garbage.” When court cases scheduled for March 4 and 5 had to be rescheduled due to a lack o f jury members present, Judge Sloan and other representatives at the Hendry County Court House had to rethink their jury summons process. It began on Monday, March 4, when eight out of 300 people summoned for jury dut y showed up. And it just went downhill from there, with nine out of 450 people summoned on Tuesday showing up, and 22 of the 1,650 people summoned for Thursday arriving. Though they were able to hold a trial on Thursday with the 22 jury members who were Court clamps down on jury summonses by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The voices of others have always been one of humanity’s greatest learning tools. Since ancient times, people have always found truth and passed it along to their youth, forming a continuous link with generations yet unborn. Through the words of others, people can visit unknown places, see sights long gone and better understand what they have not experienced themselves. Dr. Edward Elkowitz was not in the camps that protected Nazi atrocities in the 1930s and ‘40s, but he has heard the stories of fear and horror, despair and hope from the lips of Holocaust survivors themselves. Through his medical practice in Brooklyn, New York, he served four generations of patients. Dr. Elkowitz has retired from his medical practice. He and his wife, Pamelia, live part of the year here in the LaBelle area. For almost 50 years, Dr. Elkowitz practiced in that multi-cultural, multi-ethnic community a melting pot which included a large Jewish population. Inevitably, a number of his patients bore scars from places with unforgettable names that reverberate through history. Places like Auschwitz. Places like Treblinka. The voices of those refugees, full of too much pain, have remained powerful for him. He and Pam have since walked the infamous grounds of Auschwitz. It has been “sanitized,” cleansed of the physical remains of old Polish military buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s that housed many of Hitler’s unfortunate victims before and during World War II. The camp has been transformed into a “respectable” visitation site for the general public. There can still be seen caches of hair, shoes, glasses and so on relics of those who did not survive the madness of the times. Dr. Elkowitz said he was disappointed at the “puri cation” of the camp. “New generations need to see it the way it was to understand,” he remarked. He debunks the notion that German civilians didn’t know what was happening inside the camp. There is a hamlet not far away. With the activities in the camp, including the smell coming from the infamous ovens, local people could not help but know, he said. Commenting on what he saw and felt at Auschwitz, this grandson of Russian Jews said, “You can’t know the emotions I have as a Jew.” Yesterday’s Shadows : Voices behind the barbed wire by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The future of Airglades Airport remains a sticking point for the county commission and for AIA, the private group interested in procuring it. At the March 26 county commission meeting, a representative of AIA, the group interested in taking over Airglades, stepped up to explain its position. The airport is to be a public/priv ate partnership in which AIA has already put some $3 million. In a recent discussion, the FAA pointed out a list of issues with the plan to privatize Airglades. Without reconciliation of these FFA issues soon, AIA will “pull the plug” on the deal, he told the board. AIA’s Malcolm Wade said the issues presented by the FAA are all workable, including the FAA requirement of separate management and purchasing agreements. He explained that the cost method of purchasing is the only viable one in this situation and noted, “We’re the ones taking the risk.” W hat will A irglades’ future be?See Airglades — Page 5 See Jury — Page 5 See Holocaust — Page 2 Submitted photoNew Miss Florida TeenSaturday March 23, 2013 Abby Arnold won the title of Miss T.E.E.N.

By the time Hitler’s authority was established, city dwellers were more or less trapped with nowhere to escape. Country folk had some opportunity to melt into the woods and beyond. He recalled the stories some of his patients related to him from their days living under the Third Reich. One woman presented him with a piece of the board from her bunk at Auschwitz. She took it with her when she was liberated and eventually painted a picture of a Jewish spiritual leader on it, holding a ram’s horn. The doctor plans to donate the relic to the Holocaust Museum in Naples. Then there is the story of two young friends in Poland. As teenagers they ed the Germans. One ran North, the other escaped w ith this family to Russia. They were captured there and incarcerated in a Siberian labor camp. After all this young man lived through, he still felt he had been treated fairly well and, most importantly, he surv ived. The other boy went to the Baltics, which had not yet been taken by the Nazis. At the time the area was neutral. Eventually, though, he was caught there and sent from labor camp to labor camp, as needed. At the end of the war these young men w ent separately to Israel they had no home in Poland to return to. After four years they each made it to New York, not knowing the other had survived. One day a bit of turmoil drew Dr. Elkowitz out to his waiting room. Against all odds, these two young men had rediscovered each other, reunited after their individual ordeals and travels in the doctor’s of ce. The survivors Dr. Elkowitz knew told him of doctors in the camps who would determine the number of calories prisoners could receive just enough to keep the prisoners alive and able to work. In order to survive, you had to have good genes and remarkable mental strength, he noted. One boy who escaped into the countryside survived by eating bark and grass. He eventually joined up with Polish partisans. Another young Jewish man was forced to build planes for Germany early in the war. These planes had canvas wings. He was a small man who devised an ingenious plan. He cut out a section of wing and hid there. He eventually escaped into the wood and ended up in the US where he actually opened a supermarket near Dr. Elkowitz’s of ce. Stories of Nazi genetic experiments still horrify. Dr. Elkowitz tells of one man and his twin who were used as subjects in Hitler’s attempt to build a “super race.” Dr. Elkowitz’ patient was used as the control, his twin brother the experiment. Injected with a substance intended to turn his eyes blue, he died. The other twin was left with the mental anguish caused by surviving. Dr. Elkowitz treated the man’s physical ailments resulting from that internal struggle. Inexplicably, the Germans seemed to “accept” some Jews. One of Dr. Elkowitz’ patients had an incredible story. A stout woman, she was “allowed” to work for the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele, known as the “Angel of Death” for his sadistic experiments on camp inmates, even though he knew she was Jewish, because he was fascinated with her lovely red hair. There were even a number of German army of cers who were Jews. Dr. Elkowitz explains that the Germans needed their education. Many of these Jewish of cers saw themselves more as Germans than Jews; others felt they might be able to use their position to help their fellow Jews. One of the doctor’s patients was a servant for a German of cer, He would polish his boots and make his uniforms. He told Dr. Elkowitz many of the of cers could be “very nice until they put their hats on.” The man made a leather overcoat for Dr. Elkowitz like those he had made for the of cer. His testimony points to a duality in some Germans’ mentality. The doctor knew one woman escaped through a window in her barracks, crawled under electric wires and made it to safety. Dr. Elkowitz was a guest at her granddaughter’s wedding. Dr. Elkowitz said the Germans needed a scapegoat and over the centuries the Jews had singled themselves out, because of their love of education and not being as assimilated as other groups. The doctor also points out that a lot of European Jews tried to leave but were denied safe haven in countries throughout the world. Dr. Elkowitz fears that, in general, people don’t learn from history. And he may well be right. Before and since the horrendous days of the 1930s and 40s, there have been many other holocausts Armenia 1915, Russia in the 1920s-’40s, Cambodia 1970s, Rwanda and Yugoslavia 1990s represent only the tip of the iceberg. But the Nazi plot to exterminate the Jews is a landmark the world holds high as a symbol of inhumanity and an undefeatable will to overcome. This Holocaust Memorial Event by Edison State College puts a focus squarely on the history, the lives, the causes of such tragedies. It remains to be seen what people do with this knowledge.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, V iolet Raulerson was driving a 2003 Crown V ictoria eastbound on US 27 approaching the intersection of 10th Street in Moore Hav en when she veered off the roadway and struck a crosswalk sign on the south shoulder. The front of the vehicle struck a tree and continued to travel east. The front of the v ehicle then struck an overhead light post in the parking lot of the Glades County Extension Service, coming to a nal rest in the parking lot. The crash occurred at 9:54 a.m. Ms. Raulerson had been wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.Three-vehicle crash results in minor injuryIn another crash last week, a LaBelle resident sustained minor injuries in a crash with another vehicle and a dumptruck. According to FHP, a dumptruck and a Dodge Avenger were southbound on SR 29 near E Road at about 4:24 p.m. The dumptruck, driven by 29-year-old Alain Guzman LaPuente of Naples, was following a 2008 Dodge Avenger driven by Alejandra Santiago, 19, of LaBelle. The third vehicle, a 2005 Lincoln LS, was northbound on SR 29. When Ms. Santiago stopped her vehicle in the southbound lane, Mr. LaPuente failed to reduce his speed and his dumptruck struck the rear of Ms. Santiago's Avenger, Ms. Santiago exited the road, coming to a nal stop in a water- lled canal. After the impact, Mr. LaPuente lost control of his dumptruck, rotating counterclockwise, and entered the northbound lane of SR 29. At that time the left front of the dumptruck struck the left side of the Lincoln, driven by 21-year-old Dalia Marizta Lazalde. The Lincoln continued northward and struck a sign before coming to a nal rest on the grassy shoulder of SR 29. The dumptruck came to a nal rest facing across both lanes of SR 29. Ms. Lazalde was the only injury and was taken to Hendry Regional Medical Center. All involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Mr. LaPuente was charged with careless driving.

Applications Made Easyby Matt KindermannApplications are a necessary evil, whether in paper or electronic form. For the employer, the application neatly organizes important information related to a candidates work experience and background that may not be as apparent from just a resume. The application is also a good way to weed out candidates, especially if it is not lled out completely, the hand writing is messy, or things are left out. This could signify an intentional omission, as if the candidate was trying to hide something, even if it was accidental or the applicant did not know how to answer the question. When lling out any type of application, ensure that all blocks or spaces have something, even if it is "N/A," or "None." It is a little embarrassing to walk into an establishment to ask for an application, only to nd out that there is something they require that you cannot remember, such as that street you lived at 10 years ago, or the number to that fourth reference when you only have three saved on your phone. A good way to make sure that you have all the information you need for an application is to take a generic application with you that you have already lled out. While you may not be able to substitute your pre lled application with the employers form, copying information is better than trying to remember on the spur of the moment. If you are able to, see if you can take the application home where you have more time and can make copies in case of errors and neatly ll it out. You do not have to list references on your resume. I recommend leaving them off unless you do not have more than a few years of work experience and you need a few references to ll up space on the resume. However, you should always have at least 3 business related references that can speak to your ability to work. These are not friends, relatives, or pastors; these are supervisors, volunteer coordinators, or professors. Make sure your references know when you have submitted an application. It looks unfavorable to you if you give a bunch of references but they are all surprised and unprepared when an employer calls.

Jury selection is a very speci c process, beginning with jurors being selected from a list of names supplied by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The judge explained that by law you are required to keep your drivers license information regarding where you are residing up to date. Within ten days of moving to a different location you are required to change your drivers license information to match your new address, therefore making the excuse of not receiving a jury summons unlikely. “I feel comfortable stating that most people are receiving them,” stated Judge Sloan. “And the ones who are not are few and far between.”In the past those who have not shown up to serve on jury duty have not been penalized, though the court does have the jurisdiction to do so. However, with the number of jurors reaching an all time low for this county, it has now become evident that penalties will have to be enforced. “This is not something that we are looking forward to doing,” stated Judge Sloan. “Is it an inconvenience? Yes. But I have a job to do too.” Beginning in May, at the latest, summonses being sent out will include information regarding penalties for disregarding the letter. This will include a fee of $100 and another jury summons for the following month. If the second summons is ignored, the court may impose a ne of $500, a jail sentence and suspend your drivers license. If they still don’t show up, “contempt of court raises the stakes,” he commented. “I know there are a lot of unhappy folks out there,” began Judge Sloan, “but we can’t function as a court unless they honor their civic duty.” While civic duty is a good incentive to serve on the jury, the court will excuse citizens for various reasons, as long as they are submitted in writing. “We get very few phone calls from people who cannot come,” stated Judge Sloan. “Instead they just don’t show up.” However, most are not aware that after serving they are exempt from doing so for the next 12 months. After that they can still receive summons, but are not required to serve or have any other reason for not going. “It became very real, very fast last week,” said Judge Sloan. Another thing becoming very real, very fast are the penaties that will now be enforced. “Again, this is not something that we are looking forward to doing,” stated Judge Sloan, “but we have to.” Jurors must be at least 18 years of age, US citizens with a Florida Drivers License of Florida ID. According to Judge Sloan, people may not respect jury service think of it as an inconvenience but there can be serious consequences if a jury cannot be seated. If a speedy trial is warranted, and the court can’t nd enough jurors, the allotted time could run out. It is possible that all charges would have to be dismissed in that case. So, citizns answering the call to jury duty can be critical. At the very least postponing a trial due to lack of jurors disrupts cases in the pipeline -it obstructs the ow of cases. If the judge has four trials for the week, Tuesday-Friday, he needs 18 prospective jurors per day 72 for the week quite enough for seating a jury. Circuit Court needs a larger jury pool, he said, because the attorneys usually have more challenges they need 30-35 per felony case. Judge Sloan said the court has the authority to send bailiffs out to pick up noshows or gather other citizens to serve. However, it’s expensive for the sheirff’s of ce to send out deputies. So, the court has settled on the $100 ne. Prospective jurors do still have the option to call and explain why thay cannot be there. The court tries to be reasonable, but it is a responsibility of citizenship and should not be taken lightly. If you serve on a jury, you are exempt from having to serve on another jury for one year. You may still receive a summons, but he said not to ignore it. Just call the jury clerk. If you cannot make it on a speci c day, call and make arrangements. Unfortunately, Judge Sloan said that many do not appreciate the importance of what they’re doing as a juror. “To them it’s just an incomvenience.” Jury Continued From Page 1 The board members are also frustrated at the lack of progress in the venture. Commissioner Don Davis reiterated his point that the airport has yet to be productive and that he is tired of spending taxpayers’ money to shore it up. “We’ve got nothing out of it since the FAA turned it over to us,” he said. Commission Chairman Karson Turner noted that the Airglades privatization is a unique situation because the FAA has never built a community airport from scratch before. However, with San Juan airport phased out, the FAA will be focusing more on Airglades, Chairman Turner said, and added that the FAA will make sure Airglades remains an airport, no matter what. He added that this deal has the potential to set a precedent for the FAA in airport privatization Some 1,300 jobs are anticipated at Airglades if the deal goes well, more if commercial jets can be accommodated. Eventually, that property will go back on the tax roles. However, Commissioner Davis recalled what happened when General Development, the company that built Port LaBelle, went bankrupt. The county was stuck and all it received was 13 miles of right-ofway on SR 80. “Anything can happen,” he noted. The contentious discussion ended on a softer note, however AIA wants an answer to its concerns at the April 9 meeting. A irglades Continued From Page 1

The Big Bunny had lots of smiles to pass around as the kids quickly picked up the spirit of the occasion. Submitted photoEaster fun Lots of eggs and lots of kids! That’s what was seen at the annual Easter Egg Hunt held by the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle on Saturday, March 23. Over one thousand eggs were “hidden” behind the Kiwanis Thrift Store and the kids raced out into the eld hoping to nd the prize egg! There were approximately 70 kids happily gathering eggs as their family members watched and cheered them on. The LaBelle High School Key Club had fun helping the kids out in the “egg eld.” The older kids (ages 11-12) had a great time with the scavenger hunt. They had to put on their thinking caps to solve the clues in order to win their prize! Prizes were awarded for each of the three age categories, but every child that attended received a goodie-bag so no one went home empty-handed! (Thanks to the Kiwanis Builders Club from West Glades School for helping with the goodie-bags!) Additionally, a very popular part of the day was visiting with the Easter Bunny! Kids of all ages, including the adults, all seemed excited to see the Easter Bunny. The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle would like to extend a warm thanks to everyone who helped make this a special day for the kids and a big thank you to the parents and family members for allowing their children to be a part of the event!
