Keynote speaker will be Florida State Representative for Distict 80 Matt Hudson. As always, the chamber is asking for community input to nominate the Citizen of the Year.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, October 5, Chamber plans banquet, says goodbye to secretary by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle President and CEO of St. Matthew’s House Vann Ellison said his organization is looking at purchasing the old Hendry Corrections Institution site outside of Immokalee to relocate its Justin’s Place, a residence for its men’s substance rehabilitation operation. The Department of Corrections closed HCI several years ago and the property has been vacant ever since. Mr. Ellison noted that this is just an inquiry no real negotiations have taken place. He also has concerns that, the longer DoC takes to put the property “on the block,” the worse its condition will deteriorate. In fact, it could destroy the marketability of that property for anyone, he said. At this time, St. Matthews is only in the process of researching the property. If anything is to happen with the St. Matthew’s House inquiry, he added that talks will have to be expedited. No possible cost is known as yet. Mr. Ellison said that several sites have potential as locations for the program, which requires a remote area in order to isolate clients from the temptations of more populated areas. Justin’s Place is currently in East Naples. Justin’s Place has several levels of programs, according to Mr. Ellison. The rst is a seven month residential level a soul searching look at the client’s life. At present the program has some 60-70 clients, This is the level for which St. Matthew’s is considering the HCI site. The second level encompasses the client’s transition, looking toward getting back into the community. This level takes place during the last several months. The third is recovery. St. Matthew’s House has one of these programs in its Golden Gate comCharity interested in HCI site Submitted photoHelicopter crashes off SR 82 On September 29, 2013, at approximately 11:10 a.m. Hendry County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Lazy Springs ATV Park, off of State Road 82 in Hendry County, after receiving reports that a helicopter had crashed. When deputies arrived on scene they found the pilot, 60 year old Donald Purden of Fort Myers, conscious and alert. Purden appeared to be suffering from what was believed to be non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Witnesses reported the pilot had attempted to land when it began to autorotate. The helicopter lifted approximately 30-40 feet into the air and after losing power, the aircraft dropped to the ground. The reported crash is being investigated by FAA. City sets millage, budgetby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle City of LaBelle residents will pay 3.1046 mills for city taxes for scal y ear 2013-14.

Dear Sheriff Whidden, Please forgive the length of time it has taken me to properly thank you for your help in recovering the stolen gibbon babies last week. They are safely in our custody at The Talkin’ Monkeys Project and doing well despite their ordeal. I wanted to personally thank you for helping me by cutting through the red tape with the Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. Your efforts, despite the ridiculously late hour, (ie: 12:30 a.m. and through out the night!), enabled myself and Lt. Joe More of the Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. to perform a sting operation, capture the thieves and recover two young endangered apes. The case has mushroomed into quite an affair, involving US Fish & Wildlife and federal attorneys. The act of traf cking in stolen goods across state lines is minor in light of the violations of the Federal Endangered Species Act. Gibbons are speci cally identi ed in the E.S.A., as protected from harm and harassment. Proprietary ownership of the baby gibbons has been transferred from the Florida Wildlife Commission to the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service and our sanctuary has been requested to be the “Safe Keeper” of these gibbons as evidence in a federal crime. They will remain in our care until it is deemed time for them to be returned to their original home. These gibbons, aged 1 and 2 years were removed in the middle of the night from their home in Nebraska, by some deluded young men and driven across the country to end up in Ft. Myers. Fortunately, with the aid of people with primates across the country and the use of unique networking skills, we were able to cover the country with notices and media coverage. I am proud to say our organization was primary in the coordination of these resources and resulted in a positive end for the entire affair. But, again, this happy ending would not have been possible without your help. Thank you Sheriff Whidden from myself, the members of The Talkin’ Monkeys Project and primate lovers everywhere.

There are many fascinating stories of local pioneer families who built the LaBelle and surrounding area we all know. From the late 1800s almost to the midway point of the 1900s, people came here searching for the answer to their own personal dream. Some stayed, some merely passed through and one family managed to bridge two worlds. A new book, Cowboy Heaven: The Townsends in Florida and the Northern Territory, recounts the struggles, the successes and the lessons learned by one of those pioneer families. When the Townsend family came to Felda in the early 1900s, Florida was starting to bustle, even in LaBelle the population was increasing. Felda remained more isolated and the Townsend family, under patriarch A sa, established itself until his untimely death. At that time his son, Asa, just 19, took over the responsibility for the family. The Townsends ourished in Feda until 1962, when the area started to become less "pioneer" Asa and Maria Townsend picked up stakes and moved their family to the empty, arid Northern Territory in Australia, a place where they were determined to thrive. They left the dream that took them to Felda, gathering up the lessons they learned here and expanded the dream to a new home, half a world away. Since their arrival, the Townsends have made a success of their ranch in the Northern Territory, becoming strong members and supporters of that community. The family has not forgotten that its roots still remain here. Henry Townsend, Asa and Maria's grandson. was born in Felda in 1952 and grew up in Australia. He and his wife, an Australian woman also named Maria, recently visited family in LaBelle and other areas of the States. His Aunt Bessie (daughter of Asa and Maria) returned with them, deciding to return to her old home here. This beautiful book, is well written and contains many incredible photographs of the family in Felda and in Australia. Henry made sure the book was completed because he felt the Townsend family's incredible history needed to be recorded for posterity. He said copious amounts of family input have made this endeavor as accurate and as interesting as possible and is a legacy of the Townsend roots. His Aunt Bessie hopes this book can help explain their family history to future Townsend children. The family has donated a copy of Cowboy Heaven: The Townsends in Florida and the Northern Territory to Barron Library for all to enjoy.

The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has announced that the Hendry County Library Cooperative has been awarded one of the Foundation’s largest grant awards in this grant cycle. Fifty thousand dollars will go towards a new initiative called “I-HELP”, which is an acronym for “Impact on Hendry Employability Library Program”. The proposal was developed by Ms. Ava Barrett, Library Cooperative Director, and County Grant Writer Janet Papinaw, inspired by a highly skilled, but unemployed library customer. Ms. Papinaw states “This program was designed to provide training to the unemployed, underemployed, and small business entrepreneurs, to help build their skills for success.” The Hendry County Libraries have partnered with Goodwill Industries, the Southwest Florida Workforce (SWFL Workforce) Development Board, J Groves Group (formerly of the Florida Gulf Coast University Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and the Hendry County Economic Development Council, and will administer the program under the direction of Ms. Barrett. Member libraries are Harry T. Vaughn (Clewiston) Public Library, Harlem Community Public Library and LaBelle Free Public (Barron) Library. The program will offer business start-up classes in the libraries; provide classes promoting educational growth and basic technological employability skills; and offer easy access to computers and on-line resources. A small business resource and training center will be created at the Clewiston Library, to be utilized for this program. “The idea of I-HELP is to demonstrate that libraries provide more than just books. Libraries are obligated, as a public service organization, to do their part to help alleviate the economic, technological and educational challenges of the community. Libraries serve many important roles in people’s lives such as safe havens, centers for free education and community gathering places,” said Ms. Barrett. In this initiative, the SWFL Workforce Board will expand its “Youth Connections” program for transitioning at-risk high school students into the workforce; Goodwill Industries will provide computer readiness skills, employment readiness skills and micro-enterprise classes; J Groves Group will provide a 10-week “Business2Day/Independence2morrow” curriculum; and the Hendry County EDC/Leadership program will provide presentations on developing leadership skills. “Now the real work begins and I loo k forward to working with all of our regional partners for the good of the residents o f Hendry County,” Ms. Barrett said.

The Florida Department of Education de nes bullying as "Systematically and chronically in icting physical hurt or psychological distress on one or more students or employees that is severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment; or unreasonably interfere with the individual's school performance or participation." Remember, this can be done person to person or through cyberbullying (using texts, emails, phones, computers and/or other electronic devices to bully). There are generally three different roles that children can play when it comes to bullying. Kids can bully others, they can be bullied or they may witness bullying. Sometimes kids may be both bullied and bully others. If you suspect or know that your child is bullying or being bullied by schoolmates, then you must be engaged and address the behaviors! Let your child know that if the behavior of another person hurts or harms another person, either emotionally or physically, it is considered bullying and it is WRONG! It is also important to teach your child to report bullying incidents to adults. Standing by and doing nothing is no better than doing the bullying yourself! Bullying has occurred for centuries, yet we are just beginning to understand how serious the problem truly is. Short and long term effects include depression, anxiety, anger, suicide, stress and even some mental illnesses. Many parents wonder how to talk to a child about bullying and cyberbulling. The following is an excellent list of questions obtained from the www. stopbullying.gov website for you to discuss with your child. What does "bullying" mean to you? Describe what kids who bully are like. Why do you think people bully? Who are the adults you trust most when it comes to things like bullying? Have you ever felt scared to go to school because you were afraid of bullying? What ways have you tried to change it? What do you think parents can do to help stop bullying? Have you or your friends left other kids out on purpose? Do you think that was bullying? Why or why not? What do you usually do when you see bullying going on? Do you ever see kids at school being bullied by other kids? How does it make you feel? Have you ever tried to help someone who is being bullied? What happened? What would you do if it happens again? If you suspect that your child is bullying or being bullied at school, talk to your child's teacher and principal. The sooner the problem is addressed, the sooner it can be resolved. Remember that the law takes bullying very seriously. The old "boys will be boys" or "she's just teasing" are no longer valid excuses or reasons for this type of behavior. Bullying can be prevented if we all work together!
