Thursday, May 1, 2014 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 96 No. 18 Southwest sector vote postponedby Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Hendry County commissioners continue to face questions about large development. In addition to dif culties concerning zoning for the site of a proposed new energy center in the southeastern part of the county, a proposed development in southwestern Hendry has also been in the works for several y ears. With regard to that plan, at the A pril 22 meeting, Associate Planner Sarah Catala presented a request for a special meeting on the Southw est Hendry County Sector Plan. Property owner Consolidated Citrus, LLP cited scheduling con icts in its request. The board approved moving the hearing to 5:05 p.m. J une 3 in the commission chambers at the Courthouse. After being submitted to the Department of Economic Opportunity, the DEO sent its report back to the county in February and Ms. Catala said she is con dent the nal plan will be ready for adoption at that meeting. The board then cancelled its J une 10 meeting and moved all Food Chains premiered in New York a t the Tribeca Film Festival on April 26, with a special panel discussion on the topic of fai r food following the screening with the lmmakers and expert cast. This new exposŽ delves behind the scenes to reveal how fresh produce gets from farm to table and the stark economic distanc e between grocery retailers and farmworkers along the way. There is more interest in food and fresh produce than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. In this expos Ž documentary, an intrepid group of workers in Immokalee battle the $4 trillion global supermarket industry in a quest for fair wages and living conditions. The Coalition of Immokalee Work‘Food Chains’ premieres by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle Two former LaBelle students are well on their way to making their mark on the world, beginning by attending West Point Military Academy. John Marotti has been at the academy for several years. He will be pro led when he returns home for a few days later in the month. CDT PVT Morgan Pepitone was the rst Hendry County woman to attend West Point and this is her Plebe year. Next month she will be promoted to the rank of corporal. Morgan said she loves studying psychology and literature at West Point and plans to major in either Psychology or History. When she graduates, she would like to be part of the Adjutant General, the legal side of the Army. Eventually, she said she would love to have a license in working with disabled and mentally retarded children. She added, "I'm really passionate about psychology and helping those who have suffered serious brain illnesses, such as PTSD, that would be amazing." Morgan admits that, at times, she struggles with her extremely busy schedule and also dealing with family issues from so far away, but she sees West Point as an opportunity to become "my best self, and to truly be a leader, while also getting the opportunity to represent my country wherever I go." She said West Point has opened many doors for her future which could include staying in the military or even starting her own company one day. She sees that her experiences at West Point have changed her signi cantly, by becoming more responsible, and more mature Please come out and join us as we Celebrate our Annual Black Heritage Festival/ Reunion.

The names of longtime county employees were read into the record, being recognized for their service to the community. 2 Caloosa Belle May 1, 2014as an individual. She said her will to succeed has been v ery important in helping her through her Plebe year. “I have a determination and a drive to do w hatever is laid in front of me. I think that, combined with a positive outlook, helps a lot.” She explained that there are many days at West Point where it can be dreary, either because of the weather or because it is a “Thayer Week” (academically tough weeks at West Point). “But to stay positive and go into every day looking for the good, has you come out a stronger person on the other side.” She quickly admits that her family has been the biggest part to her success thus far, followed by the opportunity to dual-enroll through Edison State College as a sophomore, During the summer before her junior y ear, Morgan attended West Point’s summer leader seminar, getting a hands-on experience of the premier military academy and its training. At that time she commented, “After experiencing it in person, I realized I wasn’t going to get challenged anywhere else the way I would there. It was the best place for me.” So she jumped into the complicated process of applying to West Point. In fact, Morgan was so attuned to the academy experience that she was Congressman Tom Rooney’s number one nomination for the honor. “My family has always been the supportive backbone to my future, and without their support, I would not have the belief in myself that I can do anything. Edison State College helped to open the doors for me to get accepted here into West Point, with my high academic standing.” Morgan will have a busy summer. This year she will be doing Camp Buckner, which is military training for the rising Yuks (Third Class Cadets, or sophomores, at West Point.) The camp is 26 days long. After that she will be home to spend time with her family. While home she plans to get together with the VFW and the Legion and work with them on a few projects. Morgan will be a second lieutenant when she graduates from West Point and will serve ve years of active duty service. ers (CIW), a worker-based human rights group leading efforts to change the system through its Fair Food Program, is pro led in Food Chains. These are the new face of the farmworkers’ rights movement at a time when wages have fallen sharply -even as supermarket pro ts are at record highs. The farmworkers’ ght reveals the extreme imbalance between large supermarket chains and, at the end of the food chain, the laborers who tend to and pick the produce. Food Chains will be released theatrically in Fall 2014.

Lee Bentley, III announces the arrest and unsealing of a fteen-count indictment charging Roeshell Denise Williams, Sheree Peterson, and Yajaira Crespo, all of Clewiston, with conspiracy to make false claims to the U.S. Department of the Treasury for payment, and to embezzle and steal government funds. All three are charged with theft of government funds and aggravated identity theft. Williams is charged with one count of conspiracy and four counts of theft of government funds; Peterson with one count of conspiracy, one count of theft of government funds and six counts of aggravated identity theft; Crespo with one count of conspiracy, two counts of theft of government funds and one count of aggravated identity theft. If convicted, they face a maximum penalty of 5 years in federal prison for each count of conspiracy and up to 10 years' imprisonment on each of the theft of government funds counts. They also face 2 years in prison for the aggravated identity theft charges, to be served consecutive to the other sentences imposed. The indictment also noti es The United States intends to forfeit any assets alleged to be traceable to proceeds of the offenses. According to the indictment, between January 2012 and September 2012, the trio allegedly conspired with each other, and others, to le fraudulent tax returns in the names of individuals who did not authorize them to do so. The refunds from the fraudulent tax returns were then deposited into bank accounts controlled by Williams, Peterson or Crespo. The three then converted the funds for their personal use. An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of the federal criminal laws, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty. This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey F. Michelland. Clewiston women indicted by Department of Justice Ten years ago, in the early morning hours April 25, 2004, a young, energetic and dedicated Deputy Sheriff Brian Haas was on duty. He had been employed with the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce for about 2 years and was well on his way to ful lling his lifelong dream of being a deputy sheriff with the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce. He started out as a correctional of cer in 2002 and transferred to road patrol by December 1, 2003. Early on April 25, 2004 that all changed. Deputy Haas, along with Deputy Keith Bennett, were responding from Clewiston to a delayed burglary call in Montura. On the way Deputy Haas was involved in a traf c crash that ended his life at the age of 21. In the minutes that followed his tragic crash, the world was turned upside down for the Haas family. However, during their time of loss, both Bob and Norie Haas were determined to keep their son's memory alive. In 2005 the Haas family established a scholarship fund for Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce employees, Explorers, and volunteers who wish to further their career/education in criminal justice. To date the Haas family has awarded over $30,000.00 in scholarships. In 2004, then Hendry County Sheriff, Steve Worley, dedicated the newly built training facility as the Brian Haas Memorial Training Facility and placed a granite monument in front of the building. Within the community of Hendry Count y and members of the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce, many of whom knew and worked with Brian, still remember and speak of him fondly. "I remember Brian well. He was a wonderful young man, set to take on the challenges of law enforcement and dedicated to the citizens of this county," said Sherif f Steve Whidden. "His parents, Bob and Norie, are seen frequently at holiday and other department functions," he continued, "and they remain involved in Concerns of Police Survivors and participate in an annual retreat that addresses parental survival." Those of us who knew Brian are fortunate to have known this young man, who chose to serve his community with dedication, and his family, who lost their son, but chose to keep his memory alive, by serving others in law enforcement and those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty.

The Florida Department of Health will recognize the 20th anniversary of National Infant Immunization Week April 26 May 3, 2014. The Department reminds parents about the bene ts of immunizing children against vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunizations are one of the most effective ways to protect infants and children from potentially serious diseases. Parents should discuss immunization choices with their child's healthcare provider. "Ensuring that our children are vaccinated at an early age is essential to the health and wellbeing of Florida's kids," said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Of cer for Children's Medical Services. "We encourage parents to follow the recommended immunization schedule, providing immunity early in life, before infants and children may be exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases." Provisional 2013 data from CDC indicate more than 24,000 cases of whooping cough (pertussis) occurred in the US, including 9 deaths. All of the deaths were in infants younger than 3 months old. Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease. Although there has been a decrease in incidence since 2012, case numbers of pertussis in the US remain high. The provisional data for 2013 indicate Florida had 729 cases of pertussis, including one death. This represents an increase in the number of pertussis cases in Florida over 2012. Along with immunizations for infants, adults who care for infants should receive a Tdap booster to ensure that illness is not transferred from caregiver to baby. Through collaboration with health care professionals around our state, we can combat and decrease the unnecessary harm caused by this disease each year by continuing to immunize children and adults. For information about immunizations, please visit www.immunize orida.org or contact your county health department. Health care providers may also sign up to access the statewide immunization registry at http://www. shots.com/ to keep an online record of their patients' immunization records. The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts. May 3 ends National Infant Immunization Week "No time is better than Florida Volunteer Month to re ect on how much the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) appreciates its volunteers," said FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley. "FWC volunteers are exceptional collectively and indiv idually in offering their time and efforts to help conserve Florida's amazing wildlife diversity." More than 4,000 volunteers help with 80 v olunteer projects annually, bringing a wide range of skills, experiences and perspectives to the FWC team. Their efforts lend to the agency's success in conserving the naturally beautiful habitat of Florida, which is a key to w ildlife sustainability. Over the past six years, FWC volunteers have contributed 656,955 volunteer hours to make great strides in conservation as they tirelessly continue to: Fight the formidable battle against inv asive species. Expand the range of many valuable imperiled-species-monitoring projects. Instruct Florida's youth, residents and v isitors on how to become responsible anglers and hunters. Educate the public about living with w ildlife. Improve the visitor experience at many w ildlife management and wildlife environmental areas. For example, volunteers discovered a rare wasp species. This rare invertebrate effort was a partnership with the Florida Natural Areas Inv entory to identify rare invertebrate species as well as determine invertebrate diversity at Chinsegut Wildlife and Environmental Area and the Citrus Tract of the Withlacoochee State Forest. Volunteers also expanded the nest box monitoring range for the Southeastern America Kestrel Partnership. Volunteers monitored 10 boxes in Hernando County during the 2011 breeding season and are currently monitoring 95 boxes throughout the north central and southwest regions of Florida. The kestrel nest box monitoring program is a citizen science effort to help biologists assess kestrel populations statewide. Individual volunteers also shine as much as the collective work of all 4,000: David Blatt, from Chassahowitzka, became the FWC's Division of Habitat and Species Conservation Volunteer of the Year for 2011-2012. Bruce Antognoni, from White Springs, was the FWC's Volunteer Hunter Safety Instructor of the Year in 2012. Danielle DeSilvestro, a high school student from Gibsonton, became a national nalist for the 2013 Future Farmers of America Pro ciency Award for work completed with the Tarpon Genetic Recapture Study through the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute during the summer of 2012. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet signed a resolution on March 18 proclaiming April as Florida Volunteer Month. This resolution supports National Volunteer Week, which began in 1974 and occurs in April, to celebrate volunteers and encourage volunteer participation at the local, state and national levels. "This is a great time to stop and thank our volunteers for their hard work and dedication to helping us further our mission," said Wiley. Volunteering provides an opportunity for Floridians to help sustain and improve our habitat and wildlife for today and the future." To those who have not yet explored the rewarding experience of volunteering, it is never too late to get involved. Learn more about the FWC Volunteer Program at MyFWC.com/Get-Involved. FWC volunteers highlighted Commencement season is always an exciting time at the Hendry/Glades Center as our faculty and staff prepares to say farewell to some of the familiar faces we've become accustomed to seeing over the past year. However, commencement is not about saying goodbye. As the de nition states, commencement is in fact "a beginning or start," and a commencement ceremony is not only a celebration of the achievements of students; it is a celebration of what is yet to come for these graduates. This year, 15 Hendry/Glades Center students will make college history and celebrate commencement in what will be the last Edison State College graduating class. It will be a bittersweet moment for all of us as we not only watch these students transition into their next stages of life but also as the college begins a new chapter of its own as Florida SouthWestern State College. As we approach this year's commencement on May 2, the Hendry/Glades Center has been a urry of activity. We've held our annual Foundation Scholarship Luncheon thanking our generous, local supporters for their dedication to student success and education. We've also held a graduation reception for graduates and their families. This year, we had 10 students inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society. It is not an easy feat to be accepted into this international honor society. Students must maintain a 3.5 grade point average and take at least 12 credit hours at Edison State. We congratulate these students on their hard work and dedication to their studies. The Student Life Of ce held an awards ceremony recognizing students succeeded in academics and who have played an active role in their college and community outside of their classes. We very much enjoy this event because it allows our faculty to recognize their high-achieving students and allows our students to recognize their peers. Hendry/Glades students have accomplished many amazing things this year. Whether they are continuing on with their education or entering the workforce, the faculty and staff at the Hendry/Glades Center wishes the class of 2014 a bright new beginning with many more successes along the way. Jeff Gibbs is the Director of the Edison State College Hendry/Glades Center. He can be reached at (863) 674-6008 or by email at jgibbs3@edison.edu. Commencement season at Edison State College

The eight classes consisted of beef carcasses, pork carcasses, pork hams, beef rounds, beef loins, pork shoulder blade roast, lamb shoulder square cut roasts and beef loin top loin steaks. Beef and Pork carcasses were selected for note classes for questions. After the judging and retail identi cation was complete the individuals were given ten questions on pork carcasses and beef carcasses. In the Overall Individual Standings, Shelby French led the way by placing seventh in the state with Katelyn Steelman trailing behind in eighth place. Katelyn Steelman was awarded 3rd place in Retail Identi cation with Gage Grif n capturing fourth place in Total Judging.
