by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle It’s about testing yourself seeing what you can do. It’s about making your life better. That’s what’s going on in y oung Flavio Lopez’ mind as he gets ready to tackle the Ivy League at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Actually, it’s what he’s been doing ever since he started school. Just 18, Flavio graduated w ith the LaBelle High School Class of 2013. He’s always been at the top of his class, thanks to the encouragement of his family, teachers and an intense drive to do his very best. Like so many residents, Flavio’s family background w ouldn’t necessarily set him on a path to higher education. His father drives a labor bus and his mother stays at home. After coming to this country with his family from Mexico, he spent his rst school year, 2001-02, in Immokalee, before moving to LaBelle. Flavio still has aunts and uncles in Immokalee and grandparents outside of Mexico City. People always recognized his intelligence. Other classmates always told him he was really smart and that, if anybody could “make it,” he could. Schoolwork came easy to Flavio, becoming a little more dif cult as he progressed, but his determination compelled him to excel. As he began seeking information on colleges, Flavio rst thought he’d probably go to the University of Florida or Florida State University, but then he decided just to see if he could get into an Ivy League school. He found a program called QuestBridge, which helps deserving students nd scholarships. Flavio has four siblings. His older brother, Fabian, graduated from LHS in 2007 and is currently serving in the Navy. As a role model Fabian’s support, advice and motivation have always kept Flavio going when he felt depressed or even anger when he could not see his own progress. Flavio said his dad also impressed on him early with the importance of an education and of putting out the extra effort to earn a scholarship. Extracurricular activities were at a minimum. He was able to spend a little time in powerlifting, National Honor Society, Key Club and Math Club but not as much as he would have liked. He geared everything toward excelling in his academics, especially during his junior and senior years. He worked hard at his Advance Placement (AP) classes and took Edison State College classes enough to accumulate 55 credits, taking two or three extra classes during the fall and spring terms and at least three during the summer. He pushed himself hard to make sure he could get a good scholarship. Tuition for just one year at Brown is around $60,000. Now Flavio has a scholarship for the full four years there. When he was working toward a scholarship through Quest Bridge, Flavio had to rank his choices of Ivy League schools. Number one was Stanford, because he’s thinking of a career in mechanical engineering. Brown was number eight on his list. When he learned that he’d SIGN AND DRIVE A NEW 2013 FOCUS SE FOR ONLY $229 PER MONTH*36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. Only $229 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

The LaBelle Recreation Department carries on a legacy started by a small legion of dedicated people. At the July 16 Rec Board meeting, Recreation Director Ramiro Rodriguez surprised three of those LaBelle powerhouses of community sports with special recognition. With over 40 years of dedicated service, Darrell Harris may be thought of as the “Godfather” of LaBelle youth sports, His years of guidance on the eld, on the court and in the boardroom have earned him a Lifetime Achievement Award, presented at the July 16 board meeting. Also recognized for their continuing dedication to LaBelle recreation, Dave Lyons and Pat Langford each received plaques honoring over 20 years of service. After 45 years Darrell Harris Jr. is still active on the board. Presenting the plaque, Mr. Ramiro told Mr. Harris, “Without you this organization would not be what it is today. An emotional Mr. Harris said bringing different progams to the youth along with facilities for both youth and adults has been his mission and his reward. The accomplishment dearest to Mr. Harris’ heart, having facilities where you can go and see people enjoying them ball parks, soccer elds.

Hickpochee Ave € LaBelle, FLExpires August 8, 2013 2 Caloosa Belle July 25, 2013been accepted at Brown, his anxiety eased, but Flavio said he just sat there, silent. Astounded. He calls his emotions “super complicated.” The more he learns about Brown, he said the more pleased he is with the way things turned out. He has found that Brown is very amenable to allowing students to explore their possibilities. The freedom to explore other areas besides his major allows a person to grow and change. The idea appeals to Flavio. Rhode Island is a world away from Flav io’s South Florida home and he wants to take full advantage of the opportunity to see and experience as much as he can. In fact, he’s eager to see as much of the country as he can but this is still home, he said. He’ll always come back. Flavio has spent his entire school career thus far working toward this one goal, pouring everything he has into it. He said the most dif cult part of it all has been juggling everything. During high school, he did enjoy some powerlifting also National Honor Society, Key Club, Math Club not as much as would have liked. There was always a class to take, homework to get done. His advice to students who want to be successful is “to do what I did, but don’t take on so much.” Push yourself, he advises, but he already understands that he missed things along the way. Flavio will be leaving for Brown in the last week in August. At this point he’s getting things ready for the next part of his life. He needs a university email account and his health history. He’s looking at courses. Is it scary? “I don’t think about it. I just move forward,” Flavio commented. He understands that many of the students at Brown will be from wealthy and privileged homes, but he also understands that they’re just people. How will he adjust to it all? “I’ll nd out when I get there,” he says with a shrug. He’s prepared to give them a chance. It will be the rst time he’s had to share living space with strangers. Just another new experience for this exceptional young man. Flavio said his younger brother, Felix, and father have always told him to never give up. Make a better life. As he grew older, Flavio realized he could, and he wants Felix, who is going into the eighth grade this fall, to follow him. Felix said, “Flavio is the smartest person I’ve ever known.” High praise from young Felix, but it also comes with a bene t help with his homework. Thinking about his future, Flavio said he doesn’t want money to be an issue, a burden later in life, but he doesn’t want it to dominate his life, either. He just wants to be happy and accomplish his goals. “That is what’s most important,” he said. “I want to be happy with what I have. I’m not there yet, but I hope to be some day.” Flavio knows that he has many people to thank for his success. LHS math teacher Joy Bridwell is at the tope of his list. He had her for three years and she was a big source o f help, support and encouragement. He adds that all the teachers at the school even the ones he didn’t have in class were excited for him. He would like people to know that they’re no different from him. They can reach their dreams as well, with hard work. “Talent will only take you so far, hard wor k prevails,” he said. Flavio said his mother is happy and also sad that he will be going so far away. Still, like all mothers, she wants what’s best for her son. Flavio will miss being with his family. They are role models to him. He has seen all their hard work and says proudly, “Not a single one ever gave up.” Flavio won’t be the rst. An Ivy League school in a completel y different world peopled with total strangers will be a formidable challenge, but he feels ready to take on the challenge and maybe build a snowman or two while he’s up there. ing to watch kids out there in the evenings, he said, adding that the whole soccer park is busy., adding “It makes you feel good.” The fact that LaBelle recreation facilities are “as good as any around,” is a strong sense of pride, as is knowing that something you did made a big difference in the life of your neighbors. Mr. Harris said he was always active in sports growing up and that natural af nity drew him to the recreation eld. His rst foray into recreation was in Little League a program he stayed with for 22 y ears. He then began the Jr. Pro 45 years ago. In spite of not being familiar with sports like soccer or volleyball, he jumped right in and helped expand signi cant programs for LaBelle. He has also always supported Pop Warner, the new dog park, volleyball and rodeo grounds. Another current Rec Board member, Don Davis, has a long history with the board. He noted that Mr. Harris has been part of LaBelle recreation “since Day One.” Longtime friend and fellow recreation board member Dave Lyons was also recognized that evening for his 20+ years on the board, He noted that his own kids came up through LaBelle sports. Now he’s watching his grandchildren do the same and seeing other grandparents out there cheering on their little ones. “That’s my satisfaction,” he said. Mr. Lyons has been on the rec board since its inception. Mr. Lyons said the board was based on a Municipal Services Bene ts Unit (MSBU) for recreation in western Hendry County. It’s successful makeup two delegates from the county, two from the city and one from the school board is now being duplicated on the east side of the county. “We’ve come a long way,” he commented, thinking of the many rec projects over the years. Over the years, Mr. Lyons has served as a referee, coach and umpire, in addition to serving on the board. He is justly proud of the good facilities the board has worked so hard to build up. He called Jr. Pro basketball, championed by Mr. Harris, one of their best programs. He sees a bright future for LaBelle recreation. The new Sports Park and golf course potential to be huge for our area, he noted. Of the rec board he commented, “It’s a great working board. We get a lot done,” he added. He also had good words to say about the current director, commenting, “Ramiro does a tremendous job keeping everything up” with the resources available. Pat Langford has coached Jr. Pro, umpired in Little League. In fact, his father-inlaw, Jack Patton, was one of the founders of LaBelle Little League. Mr. Patton helped get the Pony League (now Senior League) started. Mr. Langford helped bring in the old Men’s Softball League. Many of LaBelle’s most popular facilities began with an idea by Pat Langford. The Community Sports Park (by EMS), the renovation of the boat ramp on the north side of the Caloosahatchee River it was just marl and dilapidated. It was xed up with a grant with the assistance of former Florida Representative and LaBelle resident Joe Spratt. The James Singleton Park and the Ford/ Sunset Park basketball courts, and lights for the baseball park at Felda are three of Mr. Langford’s ideas that he helped push to fruition. Mr. Langford said he feels his most important contribution has been continuously trying to think of what’s needed that will be good for youth but adults also. “It’s always been for the kids,” Mr. Langford commented. “We don’t care about recognition and have enjoyed every minute of it.” He said he appreciates the honor, but stressed “We did it all together.” Mr. Rodriguez offered his heartfelt than k you to the trio and to all those who “made this happen,” referring to youth sports. Included in that group are people like the late Ken Downing, former Rec Director Phill Pelletier and Rodney Murray and, of course, the parents of the children as well as other volunteers. This list includes people like Onley and Clara Hull who helped form the LaBelle Pop Warner league in the 1970s, Raymond Ramirez, In the ‘80s Judge James Sloan spearhaded the soccer league. Mr. Ramirez said their commitment has allowed the sports community to gro w and continuously move forward. Now, a brand new Sports Complex is in the making, sparked by a group of young men who, themselves, have been shaped by the youth sports experience. Each honoree, in his own way, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to serve. Perhaps the best summation for so much dedication, not only by the trio recognized that evening but by so many individuals over the years, came from Lifetime Achievement awardee Darrel Harris’ explanation of why they do it. Simply but, “Because we love it.” DreamContinued From Page 1 RecContinued From Page 1

TThe Florida Department of Health (DOH) is warning the public about the health risks associated with illicit synthetic substances. Often used to achieve the same high typically produced by drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and amphetamines, illicit synthetic substances are life-threatening and addictive. “Illicit synthetic drugs are dangerous to Florida’s children, adults and families,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “These drugs destroy lives, and are threats to public health and safety.” The number of people using illicit synthetic drugs is growing in Florida. The American Association of Poison Control Centers reported that in 2012 Florida poison control centers received 5,202 calls involving exposures to illicit synthetic substances, a considerable spike compared to 2,906 calls in 2010. Synthetic marijuana, often known as “K2” or “Spice,” is one of the substances whose popularity is “alarmingly high,” as noted by the Of ce of National Drug Control Policy. According to the 2011 Monitoring the Future survey of drug-use trends among youth, 11.4% of 12th graders used K2 or Spice in the past year, ranking it the second most common illicit drug used by that age group. Often sold as incense and falsely marketed as “natural,” labels of Spice claim the product contains a psycho-active material taken from plants. Chemical analyses actually reveal that the active ingredients are instead synthetic cannabinoid compounds. Because these chemicals are considered to have high potential for abuse and no medical bene t, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) designated its ve active chemicals as Schedule I controlled substances, making them illegal to sell, buy, or process. Anyone experiencing an adverse reaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center at 1-800222-1222. DOH protects, promotes and improves the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts. Follow us on Twitter at @HealthyFla and on Facebook.

The state of our DemocracyEditor:Our democracy belongs to the public, not the market place, and our airways belong to the public, not to the market place. The elimination of the Fairness Doctrine during the Ronald Regan administration, has allowed people with money to have more of a say in our democracy and essentially buy the kind of government that will keep them on top economically. Broadcasters no longer are obligated to serve the public interest. They are only obligated to serve the shareholders or the market place. We have lost the main source of information in order to be an educated consumer and voter. The more recent Supreme Court decision of Citizens United will surely accelerate domination of our democracy by those with money. I listen to the BBC because they have a broadcasting policy like the Fairness Doctrine. The British people knew that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction, while the American press were lax in presenting the facts. Juan Puerto, M.D.Respect for authorityEric Holder’s media statement that he hoped he would not have to talk to his son that his father had with him on how to act around enforcement of cers. This is not a race question. All fathers should teach their sons and daughters to respect authority law enforcment, school, elders, etc. Anyone who attacks another person with intent to harm or kill them should expect that person to defend themnselves any way they can. If you were beaten and didn’t know what might happen next, but you had a legal weapon on you, would you shoot whoever beat you? At that time, I would be afraid of the attacker returning to kill me. I would probably shoot the attacker. There are too many variables and circumstances to really say if it didn’t actually happen to you. We are all different in how we handle life threatening situations. The whole key is to respect authority and react calmly if put in a stressful situation. If we feel we are wrongly accused, then there are legal ways to address the situation. Any time a person loses their cool and hits or otherwise attacks someone, that puts them at risk for retaliation. So, I think self control is the answer. Rspect all forms of authority. If you are unjustly accused you will be exhonerated of any charges brought on you. Above all use your head before you act. The world today is a stressful place. You never know how a stranger is going to respond to you. That also goes for your friends. But what do I know? I’m only an old citi ed country boy.

Arrangements by Akin-Davis Funeral Home LaBelle.John B. Boy, 96LABELLE — John B. Boy, of LaBelle, passed away peacefully July 16, 2013 in Lehigh Acres. He w as born Mar. 25, 1917 in Johnson City, Tenn., to David C. and Kathleen Boy and was the second of three brothers. He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering. During his time at Georgia Tech, John was on the Honor Roll, a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma, Bulldog Club, Pi Delta Epsilon, A.S.M.E, Skull and Key, Interfraternity Council, Technique Editor in Chief, Yellowjacket, Blue Print, Student Council, ANAK Vice-President and Athletic A ssociation Student Member. Following graduation, he worked for Proctor and Gamble at the Buckeye Oil Company until W WII broke out and at that time enlisted in the U. S. Navy. He served our nation throughout the entire war and became the Captain of three different ships -a subchaser, USS C350, a patrolcraft, USS PC613 and destroyer escort, the USS Holton, DE-703. John and his crew from the USS Holton held annual reunions that were lled with great passion and memories of their younger years. W hile in the Navy on assignment in Miami, John met and married the love of his life, Nancy Adams, who predeceased him. Shortly after the war, John went to work for United States Sugar Corporation in 1946. Through his engineering ingenuity, he improved the ef ciency and productivity of sugar cane harvesting by converting/redesigning track mounted tractors to rubber tires which was combined with his successful redesign of sugar cane loading machines. Those redesigns allowed the Florida sugar cane industry to begin a process of mass production in the elds and factories which ultimately led to the size and ef ciency of today’s industry. John later became Executive Vice President of the Corporation in 1961 which led to his promotion to President/CEO in 1970, a position he held until his retirement in 1987. He became ViceChairman of the Board of Directors at that time. Under his leadership, the Corporation not only prospered by tripling its production, but he led the way in charitable giving to the surrounding communities of swimming pools, youth centers, an auditorium, day care facilities, housing projects and multiple scholarship programs. Two of his proudest achievements during his tenure as President were the creation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan whereby the employees would own 47% of the Corporation and the commencement of the diversi cation of the Corporation into the growing/processing of citrus. John was the beloved and respected leader of the sugar industry as noted by the numerous accolades that he accumulated and/or achieved during his career which included “Sugar Man of the Y ear”, Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame, Honorary Doctor of Humanities-Florida Atlantic University, “White Hat” award by Agribusiness Institute, President of the Florida Sugar Cane League, President of the Florida Sugar Marketing and Terminal Association, State Director of Florida Chamber of Commerce, Council of 100, Florida Land Council, Florida Farm Bureau, 1975 Citizen of the Year for Clewiston, Florida and Dedication of the Sugar Festival in 1992. He is survived by daughter, Betsy Terrill (Jim); sons, John Boy, Jr. (Connie) and H. Lane Boy; grandchildren, Jamie Terrill, Christopher Smith, Jennifer Price, Suzanne Boy, Stephanie Crawford, Rachael Boy; and ten great-grandchildren. Visitation was held Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. at Akin-Davis Funeral Home in Clewiston, Florida. The Funeral Service was held Friday, July 19, 2013, 11:00 a.m. at Evangel Assembly of God, Clew iston, Florida with Rev. Samuel Thomas Ph.D. of ciating.

Want to help at the Caloosa Humane Society, but not up to cleaning stalls or scooping litter? Adopting a pet or giving a donation makes huge differences in the lives of local animals, but if neither is possible for you, there are other important ways to help. “Dog walkers” enhance the lives of four-legged friends. Walking a dog exercises its muscles, heart and lungs, helps with agility and bene ts the digestive system. The human gets exercised at the same time. Walking also helps burn off pent up energy, thereby making the dog calmer in the kennel and more adoptable. Walks make dogs happier and healthier. Walking dogs also promotes emotional bonds between dogs and humans. Dogs learn to trust people again as they experience outings on a regular basis. It’s heart-warming to see a shy dog who once cowered when approached, change into eagerly wagging its tail at a person holding a leash. Dogs want to love humans and dog walkers make it more likely that an animal will nd a “forever home” sooner. Besides walking dogs, there are other ways animal lovers can help. Both cats and dogs thrive when people pet and play with them. Socializing helps the animals become more responsive, relaxed and friendly. Most animals love to be talked to and cared for. Positive attention reduces the chances of depression, anxiety and “acting out” behaviors. Have you heard of pet therapy? Animals are great for us, too. Who can resist a puppy tugging at a toy? Or the soft purr of an inquisitive cat? If you are interested, animals also bene t from grooming. There’s nothing like a good brushing it feels good. If any of these activities appeal to you, please contact Caloosa Humane Society at 863/675-0997 or stop by 1200 Pratt Blvd, LaBelle, for more information. Please remember that volunteers earning community service hours or ful lling school requirements will be assigned duties by the shelter staff.

Facility emission units are also subject to Rule 62-296.570, F.A.C. (Reasonably Available Control Technology for NOx and VOC; and Rule 62 296.410, F.A.C. (Carbonaceous Fuel Burning Equipment.) and Rule 62-212.400, F.A.C., [Prevention of Signi cant Deterioration (PSD) and Best Achievable Control Technology (BACT)]. The existing facility consists of a sugar mill, a boiling house and a painting booth facility. The facility’s operations are powered using steam furnished by six boilers. The total steam generating capacity of the boilers is 1,181,854 lb/hr. The boilers are capable of burning carbonaceous fuel (bagasse and residue), fuel oil, small quantities of on-spec used oil, and natural gas. The boilers are equipped with dust collectors and wet scrubbers to control particulate matter (PM) emissions. There is a painting booth facility at the site. The facility potential emissions are 4,106 tons per year (TPY) of nitrogen oxides, 1,770 TPY of particulate matter, 5,010 TPY of volatile organic compounds and 23,149 TPY of sulfur dioxides. The facility is limited to 14 tons per day of sulfur dioxide. The facility has miscellaneous insigni cant emissions units and/or activities.

Notice of Intent to Issue Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue a draft Title V air operation permit revision to the applicant for the project described above.

The Permitting Authority will issue a proposed permit and subsequent nal permit in accordance with the conditions of the draft permit unless a response received in accordance wi th the following procedures results in a different decision or a signi cant change of terms or conditions. Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the draft Title V air operation permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the Permitting Authority at the above address. As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is suf cient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and location in the Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW). If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a signi cant change to the draft permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments led will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led with (received by) the Department’s Agency Clerk in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions led by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be led within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Petitions led by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 14 days of publication of the attached Public Notice or within 14 days of receipt of this Written Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the speci c rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
