TRENTON, N.J. – A Florida man has admitted producing and selling potentially deadly toxins ricin and abrin for use as weapons and conspiring to kill a woman in the United Kingdom, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced. Jesse William Korff, 19, of LaBelle pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan in Trenton federal court to an information charging him with ve counts of developing, producing, transferring and possessing toxins, ve counts of smuggling toxins and one count of conspiring to kill a person in a foreign country. Korff was arrested in Florida on Jan. 18, 2014, following a joint investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) and the FBI. “Jesse Korff admitted producing and selling potentially deadly toxins to strangers over the Internet,” U.S. Attorney Fishman said. “Working in the shadows of a secretive computer network favored by cybercriminals, he peddled his poison on a virtual black market of illegal and dangerous goods. Today he admitted he was in the midst of aiding an overseas customer in an attempted murder. Thankfully, an undercover law enforcement of cer posing as a buyer was able get Korff off the street before he could conclude the transaction.” “HSI has worked tirelessly with our law enforcement partners to shutter underground websites such as BMR and arrest those responsible for reckless and dangerous illegal activity,” Andre w McLees, special agent in charge of HSI Newark, said. “Anyone involved in the sale of toxins designed for use in chemical terrorism must be stopped, and this guilty plea shows HSI’s commitment to stopping individuals who show callous disregard for public safety in the interest of making a buck.” “The overriding focus of the FBI’s WMD Directorate, and the primary focus of the FBI’s overall efforts is prevention,” Aaron T. LaBelle man pleads guilty in toxin case By Patty Brant Caloosa BelleHow do you repay a serviceman? Massage therapists Margie and Ron Stephens of LaBelle have found a unique way to do just that with Task Force Dagger, a nonpro t organization with a mission to support disabled Special Operations veterans and their families. Margie and Ron offered their services to these very special people at a Task Force Dagger event in June at Key West. The group’s focus is “Serving those who served US” and supplying their needs through recreational therapy. By providing family activities, they help these American heroes and their families “re-engage with life.” The veterans’ needs are vetted by the soldier’s chain of command or the US Special Operations Command’s Care Coalition to ensure they’re valid and that money donated is used properly. The soldiers they help have served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and were wounded in combat or in service to their country. This year there were 37 participants including 15 children at the Key West event. “They’re an amazing group,” Margie said, Ron’s son Mark is a US Army veteran who retired as a Master Sergeant with Delta Force. He spent 22 years serving his country in Special Operations. It was Mark who got Margie and Ron involved in Task Force Dagger. Also a wounded vet, Mark is with a group called Teen Research Underwater Exploration (TRUE) which involves teens in oceanographic science and conservation. According to their web site Truediveteam.org: “TRUE partners with Task Force Dagger, working with vets and their families to certify them in scuba diving. Task Force Dagger and TRUE Leadership provides The new mission: Finding the way bac k Submitted photoMargie and Ron Stephens of LaBelle are committed to the Task Force Dagger Foundation, helping wounded Special Services veterans and their families adapt to their changing lives. The foundation recently put on an event in Key West introducing entire families to the enjoyment of scuba diving. The foundation is a family affair, with their son Mark, a US Army Special Operation veteran.

The intensive three-day search, evidence collection, analysis and investigation uncovered an international nexus to Korff. Working through FBI legal attachs, information gleaned from the inv estigation was communicated to foreign law enforcement partners to disrupt international subjects.” According to documents led in this case and statements made in court: In April 2013 HSI special agents began investigating illicit sales activity on an underground Internet marketplace known as “Black Market Reloaded” (BMR). The website provided a platform for vendors and buyers to conduct anonymous online transactions involving biological agents, toxins, rearms, ammunition, explosives, narcotics and counterfeit items. From August 2013 through January 2014 Korff maintained a seller’s pro le on BMR under the screen name “Snowman840.” He advertised the sale of deadly toxins and prov ided his prospective purchasers with information about quantities necessary to kill a person of a given weight, along with instructions on how to secretly administer the toxin to avoid suspicion. Korff sold ricin and abrin to international purchasers in India, Austria, Denmark and England. He smuggled the toxins from Florida to the international purchasers by concealing the toxins in packages sent through the U.S. Postal Service. In December 2013 Korff provided a quantity of abrin to a purchaser in London who claimed she intended to kill her mother. After the purchaser’s receipt and administration of the initial dose, which she claimed w as ineffective, Korff agreed to provide a second quantity of the toxin in order to assist the purchaser in the implementation of the murder plot. Before Korff had an opportunity to smuggle the second dose of abrin to the London purchaser, a federal undercover agent contacted Korff through BMR and negotiated the sale of two liquid doses of abrin. Korff told the buyer about his delivery methods – concealing vials in a carved-out and remelted candle – and discussed how much abrin was needed to kill a person of a particular weight and how best to administer the toxin. Korff also assured the buyer that a victim’s death would appear to be similar to a bad case of the u. Following Korff’s arrest, FBI agents searched Korff’s property over three days and recovered several computers, castor beans, rosary peas, capsules, vials, jars, syringes, lters, respirators and other items commonly utilized in the manufacture, production, sale, packaging, and shipping of toxins and chemical substances. Among the items recovered was a liquid dose of abrin that Korff had intended to ship to the London purchaser. The toxin and murder conspiracy charges to which Korff pleaded guilty carry a maximum potential penalty of life in prison and a $250,000 ne. The smuggling charges carry a maximum potential penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 ne. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 21, 2014. U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of HSI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge McLees in Newark, New Jersey; special agents of the FBI in Newark, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Ford; and FBI special agents under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Paul Wysopal, Tampa Division, with the investigation leading to Korff’s guilty plea. He also thanked HSI in Ft. Myers, Florida, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Susan McCormick, for their work. The U.S. Attorney also thanked the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, including the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Glades County, Henry County and Lee County, Florida, sheriff’s of ces for their assistance. Vital support was provided by the Justice Department’s National Security Division Counterterrorism Section and FBI WMD Directorate in Washington, the FBI Laboratory Division, the DHS National Bioforensic Analysis Center; the U.S. Attorney’s Of ce for the Middle District of Florida; and the London Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), SO15 Counter Terrorism Command, under the direction of Commander Duncan Ball. The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis C. Carletta of the U.S. Attorney’s Of ce National Security Unit in Newark.

Many of these kids will participate in diving events that TRUE and TF Dagger sponsor. “TRUE also is a partner of TF Dagger and supports the annual Dagger Dive events. The Dagger Dive event supports US Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) Service Members (present and former), their Families, along with Kids of Wounded Veterans and Gold Star Kids. This event is designed to help these families to heal; learn a new skill (SCUBA) and enjoy that new skill together; “Recreational Therapy.” T.R.U.E. works with TF Dagger supporting the Service Members and their Families but especially the kids.” Mark said TRUE members also dive and research on coral and scienti c sh counts. A friend who is on the Task Force Dagger Foundation Board of Directors got Mark involved in that group. Mark certi es the Task Force Dagger veterans and their whole families for scuba diving. The TRUE teens, all advanced divers, volunteer to be part of something bigger than themselves. Together the two groups help vets as they struggle to communicate, to get past their disabilities. Mark said that, for some reason, they often connect with kids easier. Teaching families to dive is just another way to help them connect. Task Force Dagger volunteers have many specialties. They are doctors and chiropractors. They work as physical therapists, acupuncturists, prosthetic specialists, massage therapists like Margie and more. Like our armed forces, the Task Force is prepared for all eventualities. It has to be. The vets it serves are dealing with so man y different types of issues and disabilities including blindness, amputations, depression and pain. Volunteers also cope with other types o f “problems” that crop up. For instance, this year a veteran and his anc who had just become engaged, decided to marry that weekend, so the Task Force rolled into action, pulling off an entire wedding in just a few days. “They’re so young,” Margie said of the veterans, and they have the will and the attitude to keep going forward in spite of their challenges. “It’s humbling.” She also noted the support their wives offer them. Margie commented, “They thanked us so much for the massage therapy, but we can’t begin to thank them.” This was Margie and Ron’s second time at the Task Force Dagger event and they’re already planning to go back again next year.

A rrests Recently, there has been news coverage regarding Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is one of the V iral Hemorrhagic Fevers. It is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates (such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees). The rst Ebolavirus species w as discovered in 1976 in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo near the Ebola River. Since then, outbreaks have appeared sporadically. Symptoms of Ebola When infection occurs, symptoms usually begin abruptly. Symptoms of EVD typically include fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and lack of appetite. Some patients may experience the following: rash, red eyes, hiccups, cough, sore throat, chest pain, dif culty breathing and swallowing and bleeding inside and outside of the body. The most common occurrence of signs of infection is 8 to 10 days, while symptoms may appear 2 to 21 days after exposure. Transmission When an infection does occur in humans, there are several ways in w hich the virus can be transmitted to others. These include: Direct contact with the blood or secretions of an infected ill person Exposure to objects (such as needles) contaminated with infected secretions Participation in funeral rites that includes direct exposure (contact) to human remains in the geographic area where the outbreak is occurring EVD is often spread through close contact with infectious secretions when caring for ill persons. In order for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have direct contact with an individual who is currently experiencing symptoms or with their bodily secretions. Ebola Outbreaks Ebola virus is typically initially spread to humans after contact with infected wildlife and is then spread person-to-person through direct contact with bodily uids. Patients can transmit the virus through all stages of the illness, including postmortem (after death), if a person comes in contact with the body during funeral preparations. Precautions should be taken to limit virus transmission, through adequate sterilization of instruments and wearing appropriate protective equipment, such as masks, gowns and gloves. As of August 2014, according to the World Health Organization, a total of 1,603 cases and 887 deaths had been reported across the three affected countries. This is the largest outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) ever documented and the rst recorded in West Africa.

By Pat Dobbins August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and Healthiest Weight Florida, in collaboration with WIC, Healthy Start, the Florida Child Care Food Program and the Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention, is announcing its own August Breastfeeding A wareness Campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to promote breastfeeding as a vital health activity as well as encourage breastfeeding friendly communities throughout the state of Florida. Each week a new component will be announced which will introduce new and exciting resources for women and families, employers, child care facilities, hospitals and healthcare professionals. “Breastfeeding plays a critical role in the health of both mother and child,” said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Of cer for Children’s Medical Services. “Educating and supporting new and expecting parents helps create healthy and sustainable practices that bene t Florida’s infants and families.” Infant feeding is one of the most important decisions a family can make. Research shows that babies that receive only breast milk for the rst six months of life are less likely to develop a wide range of chronic and acute diseases including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, obesity and respiratory illnesses. They are also less likely to die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). In addition, breastfeeding for nine months reduces a baby’s odds of being overweight by 30 percent. Mothers bene t from breastfeeding with a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. The Florida Department of Health, as w ell as medical organizations such as the W orld Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics, strongly recommends that babies exclusively breastfeed for about the rst six months of life and continue to breastfeed for at least one to two years to achieve optimal health. Based on 2013 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 71.8 percent of women in Florida have ever tried breastfeeding compared to the national average of 76.5 percent. The Department of Health offers a variety of programs, materials and resources to encourage breastfeeding friendly environments throughout the sunshine state.  The Florida WIC Program offers counseling and breastfeeding materials to pregnant and breastfeeding clients. WIC also participates in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) breastfeeding peer counseling program.  Florida’s Healthy Start promotes healthy behaviors and provides services to pregnant women, women in between pregnancies, infants and children to obtain the support needed to reduce the risks for poor health outcomes.  The Florida Child Care Food Program (CCFP) awards recognitions to breastfeeding friendly facilities and provides education to child care providers through workshops, online modules, and educational materials.  The Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention supports the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, a recognition established by BabyFriendly USA promoting human milk as the best source of nourishment for new babies. Evidence shows several speci c practices in birth facilities can signi cantly affect breastfeeding initiation, duration and exclusivity. For more information, visit www.HealthiestWeightFL.com/bf. Healthiest Weight Florida is a publicprivate collaboration bringing together state agencies, not-for-pro t organizations, businesses, and entire communities to help Florida’s children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living. DOH promotes health awareness during Breastfeeding Month Pat Dobbins by Pudge LehmanMy friend Ann gave me some hints to share... We need all the help we can get in these trying times ... To cut calories use clear soda like Sprite or 7UP to replace the oil in your cake mix but check for doneness a few minutes earlier. Dark soda will remove rust from metal by soaking overnight ... I’ve said this before and will repeat once more ... why do we drink something that will dissolve rust? Use vinegar as a substitute for wine in a recipe by mixing 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water, then use whatever amount the recipe calls for. Am I the only one who has noticed the amount of stuff they are saying we need to buy? Special mouthwash for braces? Special detergents to clean our washers and dishwashers? If they clean our clothes and dishes shouldn’t they clean themselves at the same time? It’s as if they want our hard earned money pretty badly. My annual sister week in New Smyrna went swimmingly and if you heard the special news report of a whale with owery looking skin it was only me taking a dip in the ocean ... The rst fteen years of my life were spent in an old cracker house in South Beach, which was the poor end of Miami Beach in the ‘30s, so it brought back many good memories. Witches Brew TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Sixty-three new troopers joined the ranks of the Florida Highway Patrol after graduating from FHP’s Training Academy. The graduates join the nearly 1,800 troopers who patrol the state’s roads each day to provide protection and assistance to Florida residents and visitors. “For 75 years, the men and women of the Florida Highway Patrol have built a tradition dedicated to upholding the Patrol’s motto of “Courtesy, Service, Protection” to the people of this great state,” said Col. Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “This graduating class represents the future of this agency. I commend them for their dedication and commitment, and I wish them well in their careers with the Patrol.” State Senator Bill Montford, the keynote speaker at today’s ceremony, congratulated the graduates for their accomplishment. “The members of the 128th Recruit Class have put in countless hours of physical and mental training to prepare for a career with the Florida Highway Patrol,” Sen. Montford said. “They have shown their undaunted commitment to serving with the Patrol and making our highways safer. It’s a commitment for which we should all be grateful.” Members of the 128th basic recruit classes went through twentyve weeks of intense physical and classroom training covering topics such as human relations, law, rearms, defensive tactics, vehicle operations and rst aid. While at the Academy, recruits also participated in several community service activities, including blood drives and volunteering to help those living with developmental disabilities. FHP honored new Trooper Christopher Latimer with the Executive Director’s award for achieving the highest grade point average at the academy. The Patrol presented the Directors Award to new Trooper Marla Cuppernoll for demonstrating extraordinary courtesy and dedication during the 25 weeks of training. Two of the new of cers have been assigned to Glades County: Jose Rivero and Ricardo Ruano. FHP graduates sixty-three new troopers

It’s an ideal time for focusing on child safety, and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will do just that by launching its Child Safety Awareness Month. The theme of this inaugural awareness campaign is “Every Child is a Human Caution Sign.” “Whether playing in the yard, riding in the backseat of a vehicle, or waiting at a school bus stop, a child is a human caution sign, “ said Captain Nancy Rasmussen, Chief of Public Affairs for the Florida Highway Patrol. “They are living reminders that we need to slow down, pay attention, and abide by trafc laws for their safety as well as our own.” Each week, DHSMV will focus on different traf c related safety issues involving children, such as seatbelts and child restraints, bicyclist and pedestrian tips, school bus safety, and making sure a child is not behind the vehicle when backing up. The Department, in partnership with other state agencies, will be distributing safety reminders, such as: Be Alert While Backing  Walk around your vehicle to check for children playing.  Turn off your radio to better hear your surroundings.  Keep your foot on the brake until you completely shift into reverse.  Back out slowly.  Teach children to never play in, on, around, or under vehicles.  Know your vehicle’s blind spots and look again before backing. Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety  While on a bicycle, ride in the same direction as traf c and obey all traf c signs, signals and lane markings.  Always use a headlight and taillight at night.  Pedestrians should use the sidewalk if there is one; if not, walk on the side of the road facing traf c.  Always cross streets where pedestrians are expected, such as corners and crossw alks.  And be visible. Wear bright and re ective colors on your clothes, shoes and/or w ristbands. Bus Safety  Motorists are required to stop when approaching a school bus that is stopped with its red lights ashing and STOP arms extended.  The only time traf c approaching an oncoming school bus does not need to stop, is if there is a raised barrier such as a concrete divider or at least ve feet of unpaved space separating the lanes of traf c.  Motorists should be alert and watch for children especially near schools, bus stops, school buses, and in school parking lots.  At bus stops, children should wait in a safe place away from the road.  Children should never walk behind a bus.  Remember, Stop on Red, kids ahead! Seatbelts and Child Restraints  Buckle up. A seatbelt is your vehicle’s most important safety feature, but it only works if you use it.  Florida law requires the use of seat belts by drivers of motor vehicles and all children riding in a vehicle under the age of 18.  Keep children in the back seat, at least through age 12, if possible. Front seat air bags, when deployed, can be dangerous to children.  A new law taking effect in January 2015 will require children 4 and 5 years of age to ride in a booster seat.

BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA Karson Turner, Chairman 7 Caloosa Belle A ugust 14, 2014 cipal at LHS and LMS. Even before school started, he said he realized that being principal is very different. Quoting President Harry Truman, he noted, “The buck stops here.” It’s been a busy summer. Mr. Pickles hired 13 new teachers, ve brand new teachers and eight veterans, in subjects across the board. Mr, Pickles said he comes from the community has been involved in it for years and understands it. That makes him able to tap into many people and organizations willing and able to help. When a need comes up, he said he can meet with the school’s community parnters,including the health department, United Way and others like Big Brothers Big Sisters, which is coming in. All have roles to play at the middle school, he points out, because all are services that help kids. Mr. Pickles knows who to call for help. Experience, he said, is the key. Changes are coming. For instance, the schools are moving away from FCAT and going to what are called Florida Standards, Mr. Pickles said, sort of a tweaked Common Core standard. Middle schoolers can look forward to other changes, too. For instance, LMS is changing from its maroon and white colors to red and white to mirror the high school. The idea is to share a common identity with the high school; to build a relationship and also pride in the community. Math teacher Dustin Ledford, a former Hendry County Teacher of the Year from LHS is making some changes. Middle schoolers have been taking Algebra 1 eighth grade, but he’s challenging seventh graders with it this y ear and adding geometry to eighth graders’ schedule. That will give them two math credits to take to the high school, The move is being welcomed by parents, Mr. Pickles said. Some 40 kids have already signed up for the classes. Another big change for the school there is no assistant principal, but two deans. Veteran teacher Bobbie Spratt returns and is joined by John Klinger, who has been at the middle school for six years teaching science and is retired military. In general middle school is a different culture, according to Mr. Pickles, and the toughest changes for middle schoolers are always the natural physical and social upheavals. They’re just starting to gure out who they are and who they want to be. At the same time, they have to get ready for high school. Middle school is a gauntlet of challenges daily for everyone, he said pointing out, “Everyone has bad days. We need to have patience and keep trying different things to reach each kid.” One of the most dif cult situations for middle schoolers, and those responsible for them, is bullying. It’s a challenge that takes time to gure out, Mr. Pickles said, adding that it’s not just one single type of kid who gets bullied. There can be many different reasons why a kid gets picked on and there are almost 800 students at the middle school every day. Staff must counsel both the ones being bullied and the bullies. The school board has a manual staff must follow in those situations, but it simply takes time for kids to open up and a solution can be found. Middle school is a great place for kids to get into sports. At LMS they have a choice of football, volleyball, and boys or girls basketball. He also hopes to offer soccer before too long. All sports are self suf cient, meaning the school board pays for coaches only. The athletic department must fund-raise for uniforms, tickets, referees and so on. Former Middle School Football Coach Russ Bell began the long term project of providing a football eld for LMS a dream that continues but probably won’t be coming true very soon. Mr. Pickles said the school is in need of a lot of topsoil for the eld before it can move forward. Mr. Pickles said he welcomes parents’ input and their calls when they have issues. He’s very willing to adapt to working parents’ schedules. “My job is to solve problems,” he points out “We’ve got a good staff, good kids,” adding they’re excited to work with the community. “The kids’ job is to learn.” He’s looking forward to the new year and hopes anyone in the community that has a program they think might be of help will bring it to his attention, including churches, civic organizations and so on. He’s very willing for them to come talk to the kids or volunteer. Just come see. There are lots of ways to help. The middle school open house is tonight, Thursday, August 14, 4-6 p.m. NewContinued From Page 1 Take a Florida Forest BreakIf you are searching for an affordable day or weekend trip in Florida, then look no further than your Florida State Forest.

SUMMER SPECIAL! 12 Caloosa Belle August 14, 2014 By Pat DobbinsTeenagers can hardly wait to get behind the wheel for the very rst time but parents tend to have mixed feelings. Reaching teens with any kind of message is a dif cult challenge for parents. Parents are relieved that they don't have to always be the chauffer, but worry about their teen's safety. Parents need to "practice what they preach". Teens are more likely to wear a seatbelt, follow the rules of the road, and be a calm and courteous driver if the y see you doing the same. Teens need to remember that driving is a privilege, not a right, and not all teens are read y to drive even when the law says they can. Just because a teen has a permit, doesn't mean they are ready for every driving condition. Most crashes involving teen drivers include one of the following factors: Nighttime driving, speeding, teen passengers, weather conditions, reckless driving, inexperience, and alcohol. Motor vehicle crashes are the number-one cause of death among American teens and sixty- ve percent of teen passenger deaths happen when another teenager is driving! Over 5,000 teens die each year in car crashes! That's over 13 teens per day! The best thing a parent can do is to start teaching children at a young age about safe driving and then once the teen has a permit, let them practice-practice-practice! Ultimately, the teen will have to make decisions about their driving habits, but it's up to parents to be role models and enforce rules to encourage safe driving. Ask your insurance agent or the local department of motor vehicles for more information on teen driving and remember to buckle up! Teen Getting Behind the Wheel?

Did you ever go to a wedding reception, birthday party or holiday event and just sit there while the music plays and others are out on the dance oor having a great time? Now you will no longer have to sit and watch others doing what they call dancing! Dance classes are being held in the club house at Maple Corners on Whidden Road, just north of LaBelle (directions to be provided). Since starting the classes in 2006, over 150 LaBelle residents and people from as far away as Clewiston and Fort Myers have gone through the paces and learned to "cut a rug" in style. Students in the beginning classes have learned to dance the waltz, fox trot, rhumba, swing and Texas Two Step with a few steps of the polka and merengue thrown in. At the request of the students an advanced class was added a few years ago in which the students were given some additional steps for the dance they had alread y learned, along with being introduced to the cha cha, samba and mambo. It's easier than you think and you will be amazed at your ability after the eight weeks of lessons are over (just in time for all those holiday parties!) In addition to the group classes Diane and Nick have also taught private lessons as well as preparing couples for that special dance on their wedding day. Classes are held on Monday evenings beginning on September 29, 7-8 p.m. Class size is limited to the rst 15 couples, so call to reserve your place in the class at 675-1020. 18 Caloosa Belle August 14, 2014 Community Briefs
