According to a criminal complaint led by HSI Special Agent L. Martino and FBI Special Agent B.H. Zartman, two vials of the lethal toxin abrin were purchased from Jesse William Korff, 19, for $2,500. The exchange was made around 2:10 p.m. Jan. 15 at a rest stop located at I-75 Exit 139 at Luckett Road, some 10 miles from Fort Myers. Korff was subsequently arrested on charges of possession and transfer of a toxin for use as a weapon, and smuggling goods from the United States. His rst-appearance hearing was held in Fort Myers on Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 21. He was ordered held for a detention hearing slated for Friday, Jan. 24. He will eventually be taken to Newark, N.J., where he will be held for trial. He will be held in New Jersey because that is where the undercover agent was when arrangements were reportedly being made to purchase the abrin. The agent had apparently told Korff he was going to take the abrin to Canada. This investigation began in April of 2013 when HSI agents began an investigation of illicit sales activity on a website known as Black Market Reloaded (BMR). The BMR website allows vendors and buyers who are users of the site to conduct anonymous transactions online involving the sale of a variety of illegal and harmful goods, stated the complaint. These goods can include, but are not limited to: biological agents; toxins; chemicals; rearms; ammunition; explosives; controlled substances; and counterfeit goods. BMR, continued the complaint, is only accessible on the “Tor network.” This is a special network of computers on the internet, distributed around the world, that is designed to conceal the true internet provider (IP) address of the computers on the network and, because of that, the identities of the network’s users. Even though the Tor network has legitimate uses, it’s also known to be used by cybercriminals seeking anonymity in their illicit online activities. Illicit websites operating on Tor have complex web addresses, generated by a computer algorithm, ending in “.onion.” According to the complaint, BMR maintained an “.onion” web address on the Tor network throughout the HSI’s investigation. From about June 2013 through about December 2013, Korff maintained a seller’s pro le on BMR which he used to advertise the illicit goods, continued the complaint. Korff allegedly told the undercover agent the vials would be hidden inside of two candles and, because of that, could be safel y Muse resident faces federal charges by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Faculty and staff at LaBelle High School feel they are building on the foundation laid by previous principal Lucinda Kelley. First-year LHS Principal Jose Roquett noted that the school sustained a high C in statewide school grading. Mr. Roquett pointed to testing that puts LHS students among the best in best in geometry. LHS students are also standouts in biology, both at or above the state average. He also noted that their chemistry and anatomy classes are “fantastic.” Improvement in all forms of testing starts with the students and is supported by teachers who both know what to teach and do it well, he said. Mr. Roquett is very excited by the increases his students have made from last year. In math, 66 percent of the lower 25 percent of students at LHS improved their grades. In reading, 61 percent of the lower 25 percent also improved. Advanced Placement (AP) results are also good, he added, noting that just ve years ago LHS offered only two or three Advanced Placement classes with just 50 kids. With some 1,030 students, the school now offers 13 AP classes with many students involved. LHS students score well in geometry, biology Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantOne man had a dreamLittle Angels performed on MLK: Jada Barrett, Ciara Williams, Tramaria Johnson and Chanel Broughton.

transported to Canada. The complaint details how Korff would bore out the center of a candle then insert the vials. The complaint then details how Korff explained to the undercover agent how he w ould then “... melt the wax I dug out and pour it over the vial and make a at surface on the top so it looks like a regular candle.” He reportedly went on to tell the agent that no precautions were necessary when handling the candle. He then cautioned the potential buyer that when it came time to actually handle the abrin, gloves should be w orn, added the complaint. Korff then allegedly told the agent “... about 220 mg of abrin (is) enough to kill a 440 pound human.” He then went on to advise the agent that because abrin is about the color of light rum or whiskey, it would be best to put it in a cola soft drink, or a shot of rum or whiskey. Korff then said alcohol “... would probably be the best because you know they will drink all of it and they will start to feel u-like symptoms in 48 hours then it will progressively get worse until they die by the fourth day,” indicated the complaint. According to the complaint, the candles were placed in a bag from a nearby McDonald’s then left in some bushes at the drop site. The undercover agent then went to the bushes, picked up the McDonald’s bag and left his payment. While under surveillance, other agents watched as Korff allegedly returned to the drop site and picked up the cash. Abrin is found in the seeds of the rosary pea plant. It is a white-to-yellowish white powder that can be released into the air, used to contaminate water or food, and can be released as an aerosol into an outdoors setting and can be used to contaminate agricultural products. Abrin, which is similar to ricin, can be absorbed into the body through ingestion, inhalation, eye contact and skin abrasions or wounds. Like a similar plant toxin, ricin, abrin causes toxicity by inhibiting the formation of proteins in the cells of an exposed individual. In his alleged conversations with the undercover agent, Korff explained that death due to abrin poisoning “... will look like a really bad case of the u, they will start to show symptoms within 48 hours and be hospitalized by 72 and be dead shortly thereafter and no doctor will suspect foul play so there will most likely be no autopsy but if there is nothing will show up,” stated the complaint. Korff allegedly told the agent he has “... several more doses on hand,” and can always make more. Even the smallest doses of abrin are potentially lethal to humans if ingested, inhaled or injected. 12 Convenient Locations including: 870 W Hickpochee Ave. #1400, LaBelle, FL863.674.0460Our team of board certi“ed doctors treat every eye care need, locally.www.ecof.com 3rd Annual Inland Arts & Music Festival At Barron Park, LaBelle, FL February 1, 2014 9am-3pm Art Work Photograpy Writers Crafters Music Food & DrinkFor more information call: LaVon Koenig at 239-303-5849 or e-mail: artsinland@gmail.comSPONSORBlack Canyon Top Choice Angus Beef (Mi dwest Grain Fed) 6978 Country Rd 78 W € LaBelle FL 33935 Hours of Meat Case: Wednesday-Friday 9-5 € Saturday-9-12 We Except EBT Boneless Chicken BreastRegular Pack $2.99per lb 10lb pack$2.29 € Leg Quarters-$0.99per lb € Boneless Pork Chops-$4.39per lb € Whole Shoulder Picnic-$1.59per lb Whole Pork Loins-$2.99per lb €Whole Beef Brisket-$3.69per lb € Boneless Chuck Roast-$4.99per Ib € Frozen Ox-Tail-$4.59per lb Chuck Chuck 6978 Country Rd 78 W LaBelle FL 33935We Accept EBTLeg Quarters On Sale .79¢ lb USDA Choice Angus Boneless Ribeye on sale $11.99 lb On Sale Italian Mild or Hot $3.79 USDA Choice Angus Ground Chuck on sale $3.49 lb Sale Items through 1-22-14 While supplies last Not responsible for typographical errors 2 Caloosa Belle January 23, 2014He is very proud of the fact that this past y ear’s graduation rate was 76 percent and that 72 percent of LHS seniors scored college ready in reading. Mr. Roquett pointed out that rural schools have special challenges. One of LHS’ is that 75 percent of its students qualify for free or reduced lunches. Of course, there are areas that need improvement. In algebra, which he said is one of those subjects at LHS, math coordinator J oy Bridwell and new teachers work well together. The school is trying to give teachers the kind of tools they need in order to give students the kind of help they need. LaBelle High School is one of just four Florida schools taking part in a pilot project for the Check and Connect Program from the University of Minnesota. Dave Kelly is the coordinator for the program and Lisa Brookins assists in getting other teachers involved. First, Mr. Kelley said, teachers pro led students, identifying 56 who most needed assistance. Twentyve tutors/mentors are involved. The mentors do whatever it takes for the student assigned to them making calls to the home, meeting with parents, sisters or brothers, holding parent conferences, even visiting them at home. They even pick kids up and bring them to school, if necessary. An integral part of the Check and Connect program is to listen to these kids. Often all it takes is an interested adult to push kids in the right direction, Mr. Roquett said. With all the pressures on parents, they don’t always have the time to devote to these kids. In turn, many high school students are shouldering responsibilities beyond their age caring for younger siblings and so on. Some of them don’t have an adult to teach them basic life lessons. Check and Connect volunteers only commit to spending 30 minutes with their student twice a week, but even that much time can be a miracle for a kid struggling in school. Time can be spent with the student before school, during lunch or at school after hours, whatever works with the student’s schedule. Class time is not available for mentoring. The Guidance Of ce and Deans Of ce also talk and help students solve issues. People from all walks of life can be Check and Connect mentors. Anyone interested in becoming a mentor can call Mr. Kelly or Ms. Brookins at 674-4120 to volunteer. Mr. Roquett explains that “more is required of us these days” schools must look for new ways to address issues facing students. Another way LHS helps students prepare for their future is to hold nancial aid programs to help them meet requirements for federal grant monies. “We’re on the path to giving kids the kind of education they need,” Mr. Roquett said. “We have students we can be proud of!” GradesContinued From Page 1 Relay for LifeThe date for this year’s Relay for Life printed several weeks ago was incorrect.

See the latest and best camping products available to local RVers and lovers of the great outdoors offered by 14 RV dealers, Chris Morse, president of Florida RV Trade AssociationRegion One says. “Attendees can view hundreds of recreation vehicles of all different types, sizes and prices. It also features 80 outdoor and camping supply vendors.” “For many years, the Fort Myers RV Show has been the top RV show in Florida and the Southeast simply because of the high quality products, outstanding displays and cost-saving prices,” Chris explains. The 29th A nnual Fort Myers RV Show features 14 dealers from throughout Florida displaying a large selection of new 2014 recreation vehicles of all styles, brands and price ranges, including folding campers, gas and diesel motorhomes, travel trailers, toy haulers, 5th w heels, park models and van campers. Browse 80 outdoor and camping vendors displaying equipment and accessories. Shipping data from the latest research by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) this past November reveals that wholesale shipments to retailers of all RVs were reported at 21,748, an increase of 5.8 percent over the same period last year. With the limping economy, RV travel remains an affordable option. PKF’s spring 2011 Vacation Cost Comparison Study, the most recent analysis available, shows that RV trips remain the most affordable way for a family to travel because of the signi cant savings on air, hotel and restaurant costs, which continue to rise. The study showed that a family of four could save 27%-to-59% on vacation costs by traveling in an RV, depending on the type of trip taken and RV used. A two-person travel party (the typical empty-nest couple) would save 11-to-46 %. RV manufacturers have improved fuel economy through the use of high-tech composite materials that has reduced the weight of many RVs. The show is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday (January 23, 24, 25, 26). Admission is $8 with children under 16 free. Parking is free courtesy. Thursday’s tickets are discounted to $6 each. To reach the Lee Civic Center, take exit 143 (State Road 78) and go east 3 miles. Go to www.frvta.org/rv-shows for more information.

Someone has, with tongue in cheek, stated, “Money is relative – the more money you have the more relatives you discover!” The reality is nances are simply too important to ignore. It does not matter what continent, what country, or what culture one nds himself or herself, everyone will need to deal with some form of nance. That is why the Bible speaks so clearly concerning money. It is interesting to note that there are almost ve hundred verses on prayer, another ve hundred verses on faith, and nearly two thousand verses devoted to money, our possessions, and the best way of dealing with them. Likewise when you read the parables that Jesus gave it is glaringly obvious that sixteen of thirty-eight of those teaching dealt with nances. It is important to listen to the teaching of Scripture in all areas, especially when it addresses the crucial personal zones of life. Yet, amazingly, people can often discard these guidelines, stating all the church is interested in is money. For example, imagine responding to the bank concerning the mortgage on your house in the following ways: 1. The only time I ever hear from the bank is when they want money. They never pay attention to my other needs. 2. I’m upset at the bank president. He said some things I don’t agree with. 3. That house payment is 1/10 of my income. That’s a whole lot more than I can really afford. 4. I’ll give them what I can every month. But I don’t want to make any long-range promises. 5. We went on vacation last month. The bank will have to wait while we catch up on other bills. 6. I’ll support the bank with my prayers. That ought to do more good than my measly little payment. 7. The bank spends too much money on itself. When it starts giving more away, then I’ll start making house payments again. 8. The bank has a lot of rich customers. It can get along ne w/o my little payment. How do you suppose that would work out for you? I certainly hope you have relatives nearby with an extra bedroom, or at least you enjoy camping! The reality is God’s plan for managing our nances has been proven repeatedly over the centuries. One should support their local church and ministries that promote Gods ways to others. The reason is clear – when a person trusts God with that which has been entrusted to him or her, blessings and assurance are con rmed. Here are some clear lessons from the Bible that help individuals regarding this important matter of why should he or she be a tither. 1. God is pleased by your obedience. Malachi 3:10 Regular giving is a sign of obedience to Christ. We prove our love for Christ by obeying his commands. 2. God is honored by your faithfulness. Proverbs 3:9 He deserves our faithfulness. 3. Tithing helps to keep your priorities straight. Matthew 6:21 I believe that giving to the Lord is the number one priority for a believer. 4. You are eligible for a blessing. Malachi 3:10 But remember, the blessing is not always monetary – God has not promised “health and wealth” to the Christian. The believer is to be content in whatever state he is placed and God has promised to shield us from trials that we are not strong enough to face. 5. Guards Christians from sel shness. Acts 20:35 Tithing reminds us that ultimately our money does not belong to us. 6. God loves a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:6-12 Are you excited about the opportunity to serve God with your nances? 7. Tithing supports the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19-20 Your tithe should go to your local church and God has chosen to work through the church during this ages. 8. Tithing ensures that your needs will be met. Matthew 6:33 God has promised that our needs will be met. Needs – but not necessarily “wants”. 9. Tithing helps to meet the needs of God’s people. I Corinthians 16:1-2 Hopefully your church seeks to use at least a portion of its budget to help those less fortunate. 10. Tithing reminds us that God is the true owner and giver of all that we have. I Timothy 6:17-18 All we have belongs to God and the tithe helps to remind us of this fact. In closing let me say that from the time I was thirteen, and made $1 an hour (cheap even in that day!) I was taught to tithe. That is a pattern I have always maintained, and have never seen the Lord fail to do what He promises to do.Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located across the street from City Hall on Highway 80.

16 Caloosa Belle January 23, 2014 Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantHelping youth to understand the pastThe community celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day Monday, January 20, with traditional parade and activities at Kid Jones Park. Dr. King led the ght against segregation in a way that encouraged peaceful interaction. Organizer Nora Ned reminded the audience that "we can do what we want because of the people who led the way." Rev. Alonzo McKenzie explained that adults need to teach the children why events like this one are important so the dream will not be lost; they must understand what others had to endure to appreciate what they have. Nora Ned, Ray Field Johnson and Rev. Alonzo McKenzie all stressed the importance of relaying the messages of past struggles to the younger generation. Young Faith Patrick, a rst timer at the annual celebration, said she sees cliques at school based on race and feels there is still more work to be done in bringing people together. Pictured: Jazmyne Hendrix and Jayda Hendrix, seven-year-old twins, Chanel Broughton, 7 and Ciara Williams, 7. by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle What began as an appeal on a code enforcement complaint evolved into a larger discussion of migrant housing and boarding houses at the January city commission meeting. Frank Powers came appealing a citation on a house he owns on Tropicana. A group of single men occupy the house, which is zoned for single families, during the ag season. He said he has done so for over 20 years without complaint. A neighbor complained that she did not feel safe living in close proximity to the house with so many single men. Mr. Powers was informed that he could go before the board of appeals, which can hear the case and either uphold or overturn the infraction. Another man owning a residence which houses single men was also at the meeting. This residence is located on Martin Luther King Blvd. He had multiple citations which had not been addressed, but he was also told he could take his eligible issues to the board of appeals. However, deadlines had passed on many of those citations, so they would have to stand. Ms. Hill explained that the city’s housing code enforcement is “complaint driven,” meaning that the city does not speci cally look for these types of violations, but when a complaint is lodged the process begins. City Attorney Angela Hill also said the city can rewrite its zoning regulations to allow migrant housing and boarding houses in speci c areas, if the board chooses to. She said the Department of Health permits migrant housing according to its own guidelines, which do not coincide with cit y zoning regulations. She added that LaBelle has more migrant housing permits than the City of Clewiston. Ms. Hill felt that permits for migrant housing should be subject to both the department of health and zoning rules, with applicants verifying that they are in proper city or county zoning rst, then securing department of health certi cation. On the west side of Martin Luther King Blvd., a Residential Neighborhood Urban zone, migrant housing or boardinghouses are allowed with a special exception.Missouri Street PUDA request to rezone 0.7 acres on the east side of Missouri Street between Fort Thompson and Washington Avenues from MultiFamily Residential to Planned Unit Development postponed until the city commission’s February 13 meeting. The project proposes a maximum of 11 residential rental units to be developed as two apartment buildings.  The next regular city commission will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 13, at cit y hall.
