ALTAIR Training Solutions, Inc. is ServiceDisabled Veteran Owned and Operated Business that opened in 2012. As a retired Sergeant Major with a special operations background, CEO Brian Jones founded ALTAIR to provide training solutions for military and government specialized teams. The CEO, leaders, and trainers at ALTAIR understand the importance of staying abreast of technology and creating innovative training packages. "We've been working on this project for several months with Gregg Gillman, President of Hendry County Economic Development Council and other key organizations in Hendry County, and are extremely pleased with the support we've received. This project will create over 150 jobs in the next 3-5 years and will have an extremely positive economic impact on Hendry County and Florida as a whole," said Brian Jones, owner of ALTAIR. "On behalf of the GATES organization, we are extremely proud to be selected as the Construction Manager for this game changing project. To be associated with ALTAIR's leadership and mission, and have the opportunity to work with visionaries such as Brian and Michelle is both humbling and an honor........ Todd Gates, Chairman GATES" Gillman is adamant that the key to the success of this project thus far has been the collaborative effort from the County Administration and Commissioners along with support from Representative Matt Hudson at the state level, working alongside the EDC. "These projects take a lot of stamina and the only way to create successful economic development projects is to remain committed through all the obstacles that naturally arise during the site selection process." "We are truly excited to work with ALTAIR to further our strategic goal of diversifying the Hendry County economy. The multitude of opportunities an organization like ALTAIR brings to our community is amazing," states Charles Chapman, County Administrator. State legislators from around the area also recognize the possibilities.

The On-Premise Cloud Computing won the 2014 NACo Achievement Award. At the direction of County Administrator Charles Chapman, IT was challenged to rearchitect existing technologies and exceed capabilities of neighboring counties, at a fraction of the cost. In 1970 NACo (National Association of Counties) started the annual achievement awards program that recognizes innovative county government programs. Awards are given in 21 different categories and each application is judged on its own merits and not against other applications. Congratulations to the Hendry County Information Technology department for a job well done! Not only did they meet the challenge, the budget savings are signi cant. Hendry wins national award and applaud their willingness to work with the local community and the State to make that vision become reality. I look forward to working with the local government to help facilitate future economic development opportunities for Hendry County” State Representative Matt Hudson “I am pleased that the State has nalized the sale of four closed prisons, including the one in Hendry County, that will bring in more than $27 million to the state’s environmental land-buying program. The purchase of the Hendry site by Altair Training Solutions is especially pleasing as they have a track record of private sector productivity. I would like to thank Governor Scott, CFO Atwater, Attorney General Bondi, and Commissioner Putnam for approving this land deal unanimously.” Rep.

by Dr. Jeff Allbritten, President, Florida SouthWestern State College For more than 50 years, Edison State College has been an integral part of the Southw est Florida community. Beginning July 1, we are Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). While our name is new, it’s important for you to know that our mission, our vision and our dedication to the students, businesses and communities we serve remains the same. Simply stated, this is a name change, not a mission change. In the past few years, we have been undergoing an evolution. In order to continue serving our students, we need to be sure that our academic offerings, and the manner in which we deliver them, are designed to meet the demands of today and tomorrow. We now have ve schools that help us do that: the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the School of Business and Technology; the School of Education; the School of Health Professions; and the School of Pure and Applied Sciences. We have impressive facilities to help our students prepare for their careers, including state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs, a dental hygiene clinic and crime scene investigation software and equipment, for starters. Did you know that we are home to world-class arts icons: the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery and the Rush Gallery? Many people may not recall that we were the rst college to have athletics in this area. Starting in the fall 2015, the Buccaneers will return to competition with our softball and baseball teams. We just signed a 10-year lease with Lee County for the City of Palms Park in downtown Fort Myers. When you look back on your college days, you’re going to remember the friends you’ve made both in and out of the classroom. We continue to have strong academic offerings. Now, by having student clubs, intramural sports and now intercollegiate competition, this college offers the complete college experience. Looking ahead, we will continue to evolve as FSW. We are working on offering international studies and experiences, and continuing to build key partnerships with area businesses and our sister institutions. This truly is an exciting time for everyone.

If you are like me, there are times when the last thing I need is someone adding something to my list of things I need to take care of each day. As a busy pastor, employer, husband, father and shepherd over a few hundred people, my “todo” list is long, constantly being managed, edited and reviewed. However, sometimes w e need to stop the hectic pace, sit down, take a deep breath, and access. Recently I read an article written by Regina Brett of the Plain Dealer. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio and recently turned 90 y ears old. Because I was taught to respect older people and their insight, I read what proved to be a wonderful review of what is really important. Here’s Regina: “To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I’ve ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short, enjoy it. 4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself. 7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone. 8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your rst paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the future. 12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don’t worry, God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways. 18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the ow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In ve years, will this matter?’ 27. Always choose life. 28. Forgive. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do. 35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative o f dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.” How’s that for a “to-do” list? # # #Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle, located on Highway 80, across the street from City Hall. It’s a great reminder Why not make yourself a ‘To-Do’ List? ~Lightning Safety Awareness Week is recognized June 22-28, 2014~by Pat Dobbins Millions of lightning ashes happen each year and lightning can claim one or two victims at a time. Lightning strikes usually do not cause mass destruction of property, so it may not be considered as a “high-risk” to some people; However, lightning has killed over almost 100 people in the last few years! According to the National Weather Service Storm Data, over the last 30 years (1981-2010) the U.S. has averaged 53 reported lightning fatalities per year. Only about 10% of people who are struck by lightning are killed, leaving 90% with various degrees of disability. Please note: Lightning Safety Awareness Week is recognized June 22-28, 2014 Did you know that lightning can strike as far as 10 miles from the area where it’s raining? That’s about the same distance that you can hear thunder. So if you can hear the thunder, that means you are within striking distance! Most lightning deaths or injuries happen in the summer. School will soon be out for summer, so take time now to educate your family on lightning safety! “When lightning roars – go indoors!” There are some indoor dangers to remember as well. Stay off of corded phones and computers during lightning. If a person is struck by lightning, please call 911 and get medical care immediately. Heart irregularities, cardiac arrest, nerve damage and burns are common when someone gets struck by lightning. However, with proper treatment, including CPR if necessary, most victims survive a lightning strike. You are in no danger helping a lightning victim. The charge will not affect you. Lightning is primarily an injury to the nervous system, often with brain injury and nerve injury. Serious burns seldom occur. People who do not suffer cardiac arrest at the time of the incident may experience lesser symptoms, which often clear over a few days such as muscle soreness, headache, nausea, stomach upset and other post-concussion types of symptoms, mild confusion, memory slowness or mental clouding, dizziness, and balance problems. Please stay safe this summer and remember: “When Lightning Roars, Go Indoors!” It’s summer. Time for Lightning Safety Patricia Dobbins Les Morgan

Jarad Plair, 2012 graduate of LaBelle High School has been named to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Dean’s List for the spring 2014 semester. Jarad is majoring in Diversi ed Agriculture and holds a GPA of 3.7. Students who achieved academic excellence in their course work during the spring term were recently recognized at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. ABAC cites its top academic students each semester on the President’s List, the Dean’s List, and the Distinguished Achievement List. Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs Niles Reddick said the students who quali ed for the Dean’s List attained a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and carried at least 12 hours of academic work. The purpose of this list is to recognize excellence and scholastic achievement. Jarad Plair on ABAC Dean’s List After meeting with Hendry-LaBelle Recreation Director Ramiro Rodriquez last month, there was no question in Alva resident, Elizabeth Bumgarner’s mind that the LaBelle area children needed a playground. W hat was in question was how long children would have to wait to get it. Was it possible to raise the money necessary to build the rst unit of the playground similar to the Buckingham Park playground w ithin the next six months at the LaBelle Civic Park? The answer was “Yes.” In order to help make this dream of a playground become a reality, Elizabeth Bumgarner, donated $25,000 during the June 15 Hendry/LaBelle Recreation Board meeting and suggested naming the playground after Zachary Reyna. She challenged the LaBelle Community to raise an additional $25,000 which she would match. This would increase her donation to a total of $50,000. Can the LaBelle Community meet the challenge within the next few months? So far $3,200 of the $25,000 LaBelle Community donation has been raised. Individuals, businesses, organizations and foundations who would like to show their support for this project may send their tax deductible contributions to: Hendry/LaBelle Recreation Board “Zachary Reyna Memorial Playground.” PO 1760 LaBelle, FL 33975. In addition to funding, help with fundraising activities, in-kind of labor, site preparation, and landscaping would help provide a playground for the LaBelle area children. For information contact: Ramiro Rodriquez, Hendry/LaBelle Recreation Director at: 863-675-5347. Money donated for Zachary Reyna Memorial Playground Predicting disasters or hazardous incidents is impossible. The next major event can come at any moment. Preparation and planning for the unexpected is the only course of action. On June 11, 2014 more than 70 emergency responders from the region joined forces with Glades County Public Safety, Local Emergency Planning Council, Florida Department of Health in Glades County and W edgworth Fertilizer, Inc. to participate in an “Emergency Response Exercise”. After months of planning, Glades County Public Safety (along with support from responders in the region) demonstrated the ability to operate in response to a major incident that included scenarios involving real people w ith simulated serious injuries. The Planning Team worked closely together with responders and the private industry to provide a learning environment that mirrored a realistic incident. The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties coordinated “actors” by enlisting the help from sixteen Nursing Students at Florida Gulf Coast University. Some of the students role-played as “victims” while others assisted with rapid triage. Kelly Brantley, J udicial Assistant for Glades County also volunteered to role-play in the exercise. The simulated incident occurred at Wedgworth Fertilizer, Inc. in Moore Haven but also included the Florida Department of Health in Glades County which was used as a “medical staging site”. The responders and other exercise participants trained in areas that focused on emergency management, healthcare, the re service, law enforcement, emergency medical services and hazardous materials. Following a hazardous event, response organizations specializing in a variety of skills are mobilized to assist in the rescue and recovery. “This type of training allows responders to deploy to an unfamiliar location and into an unknown situation and manage the incident on arrival,” said John Gibbons, Planner/Program Manager for Hazardous Waste/ Materials Program of the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council. “This was as realistic as you can make it. You respond like you train,” said Bob Kosiba, Exercise Facilitator and Regional Planner/Regional Consultant for the Florida Department of Health. “If you don’t have reality in training, when something happens you’re not going to be as prepared. We learned from each other and shared ideas. This training exercise provided the opportunity to learn together, get a common picture and spend time strengthening professional relationships.” Regional collaboration – Response exercise in Glades County

This resolution follows numerous efforts by the Commission to seek a proactive solution to these emergency situations. High-water events cause serious nearterm threats to the diverse wildlife in the Everglades, including threatened and endangered species. The plan addresses shortterm high-water impacts while ongoing and planned longer-term restoration efforts are being completed. FWC biologists have provided partner agencies with science-based water management requirements based on seven decades of experience managing the area’s sh and w ildlife habitat. “We always need to be looking at the global Everglades, not just one particular portion of it,” said FWC Commissioner Ron Bergeron. “It’s our responsibility to protect the wildlife in the Everglades, and we need to encourage our partners to help us keep the system alive while the longer-term restoration efforts are being completed.” FWC staff continues to work with partners on efforts to restore this area by participating in planning meetings and providing comments, review and input into future decisions about Everglades restoration.

16 Caloosa Belle June 26, 2014 by Patty Brant Caloosa BelleIt’s impossible to overestimate your eyesight. Every day we all go through life relying on what our eyes tell us. But what if you couldn’t rely on your eyes any more? How w ould you take care of your child? How w ould you work? Or even get to work? How w ould you take care of yourself? How would y ou do the thousands of things you do now w ithout even thinking about them? Maria Fundora is in the unbelievable position of having to deal with the prospect of losing her sight. Diagnosed with keratoconus, a degenerative disease caused by a w eakened cornea, she knows she will ultimately become blind. Maria has lived in the LaBelle area for eight years. She works for the Collier County Public Schools in Immokalee. She has prev iously worked for the Southwest Florida W orkforce Development Board, Harry Chapin Food Bank distributing food in LaBelle and taking Medicaid applications. She also w orked with Lucy’s Angels. Trying to keep it together, she has also worked as a substitute at West Glades School. Maria has a 22-year-old daughter in Okeechobee and a 10-year-old son who is involved with the LaBelle Little League and A ll Stars. This eye condition has her completely frustrated. Her left eye is blurred and everything she sees is crooked. She is relying on her right eye, using hard contact lenses she’s not supposed to, just so she can see well enough to navigate. She’s been going to Bascom Palmer Eye Institute for two years, but her condition only gets worse. This single mother was told she needs a cornea transplant and is already legally blind in one eye as her vision continues to worsen. Nothing Bascom Palmer has done has helped her condition, Maria said. Their only answer is for her to have a cornea transplant. But Maria is adamantly opposed to this inv asive procedure and, through her research, has found that a doctor in California may have a cure for her Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler at the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute. However, the procedure is considered preventative and therefore not covered by insurance. Maria has a CD sent by Boxer Wachler outlining the various procedures, who is a viable candidate for them and other particulars. Maria feels any of four might be helpful for her. She said the procedures may be able to stop the progression of the disease, but cannot reverse it. She is desperate to nd the money for the treatment, which she must have before they will treat her. So Maria is reaching out to the community for help. The past few years have been tough for her. Her house was in foreclosure but she recently signed a modi ed loan so she could keep it. Now she doesn’t even see how she will be able to keep her job if she loses her eyesight. She has no credit. She has received a $7,100 grant to pay for the Holcomb C3r treatment that should stop the progression of the disease but doesn’t know how she will pay for any other procedures or transportation. Insurance may reimburse her for some expenses. She’s not sure at this time what procedure she may be a candidate for, but $23,000 is a minimum. Maria is getting her nal records together and had her last test Saturday. She has an appointment for July 23-24 in California and must have the money at that time. If she doesn’t, there won’t be another opening until September – and that will be too late. United Way is looking for ways to help and Maria is even thinking about raf ing her vehicle because, she said, at this point “it’s not a priority.” An account has been set up at First Bank of Clewiston in the name of Fundera Fund if you would like to make a donation. Dealing with the loss of eyesight Submitted photo/ Tommy VaughanLearning to yOn June 19, the LaBelle Airport sponsored a eld trip for students from LaBelle's Pre K5Th grade Migrant Summer Program. The students were introduced to the different types of aircraft and were taught the mechanics of what allows an aircraft to y. The seventy kids enjoyed learning what it takes to be a pilot from Sam and Patty James and were allowed the opportunity to sit inside the aircraft. They also enjoyed cookies and drinks provided by the LaBelle Airport along with the chance to see aircraft landing at the airport.
