St. Matthew’s House is the only emergency housing and recover y program in Collier County. Conference center supports local economy by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle America has always grown some amazing youth. It may go unnoticed in the avalanche of media stories and photos of kids going the wrong direction, but hard working, sacricing young people with big hearts and strong bodies are still out there. With the world in such constant uproar, it seems there is no time when this country can relax its vigilance and the US Marines are always ready to answer the country’s call. That’s because of dedicated young men and women who are willing and anxious to step out and serve. Many LaBelle kids admire the work ethic it takes to be a part of an organization like the Marines and nd their way early to The Few, The Proud. The Delayed Entry Program allows young people to get a strong dose of the reality of a Marine’s world. SSGT David Foraker is the recruiter at the LaBelle Marine Corps facility. SSGT Foraker said he’s always seen the military as “super heroes,” ever since he listened to his greatgrandfather’s stories from his experience in the Paci c Theater during World War II. This 12-year Marine has served his country in aviation maintenance. SSGT Foraker has served in Iraq and three years in Quantico. He said the biggest surprise for him was being classied “Yankee White,” giving him direct Presidential contact, working on the Presidential Helicopter. SSGT Foraker is looking forward to serving for a total of 20 years, then possibly going into the Florida Wildlife ComYouth meet Marine Corps challenge Caloosa Belle/ Patty BrantThis Marine recruit shows the strain and intensity of training. That’s recruit Tyler Burke of LaBelle meeting the challenge at left. Participants in the Delayed Entry Program train twice a week at a private home in Sky Manor in preparation for the “real deal” when they head off to Parris Island for basic training.

Even though we've only been married a year, you have been my love, my life and my everything since we “rst met. The day we did “rst meet, you walked outside your home without makeup on, your hair not brushed and you were still waking up that morning, I knew there was something about you that September 17th 2012. And then you texted me and our life began! I truly believe God brought us together and I am so lucky to have you in my life. You are the ultimate wife and best friend a man could ever ask for. In my eyes, you are simply incredible! And I can not put into words, I can not express enough joy and put enough value to what you have given me the last 2 years.... so much love, so much joy, so much purpose. Just like what I said on our wedding day, I will love you, Jessica, till my last breath, til the end and forever. Happy Anniversary Cupcake!! Your loving husband. ANNIVERSARY 2 Caloosa Belle October 2, 2014mission or forestry. SSGT Foraker and two other recruiters from Lee County, who bring their ETP recruits here spend two nights a week Tuesday and Thursday putting the recruits through tough physical training in preparation for what awaits them when they actually enlist. That effort can make a huge difference for the recruit when he or she gets to basic training. These young men and women receive physical training at Sky Manor. Gary Striker, w ho served in the Marines and in the Air Force, offered his place when he saw the Marines doing their physical training in the parking area behind the Fortune Cookie restaurant. Gary was morti ed that his beloved Marines had no better place to train. Other recruitment centers were even worse off training basically on the sidewalks around Fowler in Fort Myers and similar unsuitable places in Cape Coral. There was a better w ay, he knew, so he made his personal hangar available. These recruits put their full effort into running, ipping huge tractor tires, lifting w eighted ammo tins over and over as well as other heart-pumping, muscle wrenching exercises. They are expected to put everything they have into each of several training stations. And that is exactly what they do. Nothing less is acceptable. "These kids fortify my belief in the future of America," SSGT Foraker said. They're only required to come once a month, he said, but most come twice a week and even drive to Cape Coral or Fort Myers for training. After every three stations they get a one minute rest and water break before they have to dive right back into the next station. Recruits must be a resident of the US, pass medical screening, have no felonies, no visible tattoos and have at least a high school diploma or GED (plus 15 college credits at 100 level) and good standing in academics. The accommodations at Sky Manor for the young Marines couldn't be better. There is even a pool available where recruits who need the required water skills for success can learn them before going off to the real deal. It's not all about physical training, though. Recruits are taught teamwork and that there can be no weak links in the team. Michael Hernandez, 17, is a LHS junior whose brother has been a Marine staff sergeant for nine years. Michael was inspired to sign up when he saw the immediate difference the Corps made in his brother. When his brother returned home on leave, he was a new person with more respect for their parents and an entirely new view of his life. Michael will go into the Corps after he graduates in 2016. Sweaty and breathing hard from his training, Michael said that switching stations with no rest is the most dif cult for him. "But I learned I can push more than I thought I could," He's planning to enlist after graduation and become an aviation crew chief. He hopes to go to college, then become an of cer and become a Navy ight of cer, ultimately retiring from the Corps. Jesus Gomez is also a 17-year-old junior at LHS. He was inspired to enlist when he saw the difference the Navy made in his brother-in-law. The military changed his life and gave him a new perspective the same thing Jesus wants for himself. It was just his rst day at training, but Jesus said the military teaches so many things he wants to do. He already is learning that he will have to give as much as he can without giving up and that he can motivate himself from his mind and forget the pain. Although it's dif cult and you want to give up, the effort is worthwhile, he added. Jesus is looking for an 8-12 year enlistment and would like to inspire his younger brothers the same way he was inspired. He admits his parents are not sure about the military, but he knows it's what he wants. Twenty-year-old Tyler Burke, graduated from LHS in 2013. He's been in the workforce for a while now he did construction and worked with a marketing company. He's working at Sal Cal now, but knows it's time for him to be part of what he described as "an elite group called the Marines." He said he looked at all the branches of the service, before deciding on the Marines. "Since I was four years old," Tyler said, "I've had a strong heart." He also said he has dif culty with the intensity of moving from station to station with all its intensity. "I learned I can push further than I expected," he said. Tyler wants to go into the Military Police. He said his grandfather was on the force in Cape Coral for 27 years and he's always wanted to be in law enforcement, too. He also has a brother who is a staff sergeant in the Air Force. The military is for Tyler because, he said, he's seen the change in mentality it brings. He wants to "get best out of life" and to learn to hold himself with the pride and sel f suf ciency of the military. He hopes to retire from the Corps one day after working his way up the ladder. Tyler leaves for basic training at Parris Island February 16, 2015. In dif cult times, the US has always called on its young people and they have always responded. People like SSGT Foraker and Gary Striker are there using their own experience to help this new generation o f heroes achieve their dream. Becoming a United States Marine.

Safe (KIDS) Act, allows parents to set up credit records for their children and freeze them, effectively blocking thieves from using a child’s personal information to open a credit card, mortgage or other nancial account. Before the passage of this legislation, more than 50,000 children in Florida were victims of identity theft each year. Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen commented, “I’m excited that our hard work has paid off and this bill is nally available to help protect the personal identity of Florida’s children!” This new law requires consumer reporting agencies to establish and freeze a credit record for a minor upon request by the parent or guardian. Parents in Florida can no w ensure their child’s identity and nancial information is safe from criminals. A new website provides information on the law and gives parents tips on how to protect their child’s personal identi cation. It also explains what to do if your child’s identity has been compromised. To stop identity theft before it starts, go to www. FreshFromFlorida.com/ProtectYourChild. Representative Heather Fitzenhagen was elected to serve District 78, which covers part of Lee County and the City of Fort Myers, in the Florida House of Representatives in November 2012. New law protect children’s identity On September 22, 2014 at approximately 9 p.m., the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce responded to an address off Laurel Drive in Clewiston regarding an informational report. Upon arrival, the Deputy met with the Clewiston High School Principal who advised that someone posted threatening comments to injure students at Clewiston High. Hendry County School Resource Ofcers (SROs) and detectives were contacted and they immediately began attempting to locate and identify the poster(s). While the post was continuing to be monitored by the SROs, investigators began contacting the iPhone Application Corporation, who provided investigators with the gps coordinates of the poster. Investigators made contact with Manual Castanon, 17 years of age, a student at Clewiston Middle School, who admitted that he did make the post. “I am very proud of the efforts of our deputies and the relationship that has been established between the SROs and school of cials. Everyone acted immediately to protect our students and staff at Clewiston High School,” said Sheriff Steve Whidden. Castanon was taken into custody by Hendry County Sheriff’s Deputies without incident and transported to the jail. Castanon was charged with Written Threats To Kill or Do Bodily Injury. Castanon is currently being held in the Juvenile Detention Center. Arrest at CMS for written threat

LMS appreciationI’d like to use the Speak Out to give a shout out to Mr. Pickles at LaBelle Middle School. Our schools, teachers, and principals are under a lot of pressure lately. The new state test has everyone on edge, but I’d like to say thank you for looking out for my child’s grades, progress, and helping him transition into his new 6th grade environment. Thank you, Mr. Pickles and Staff! Grateful Grandparents Speak Out Recognition for dedicated emergency workersIn the very early morning hours of Friday, September 19, a horrendous re broke out in our garage/barn, only feet from our home. Awakened by the intense glow, popping and explosions from the ames we immediately noti ed 911. Deputy Josh Woods from HCSO had noticed the 911 call dispatched to the re department as he was coming over the bridge and within minutes he arrived at our location and he immediately noted that the re was quickly making its way up our breezeway to our home. He and another deputy gathered all the water hoses they could nd and began spraying down our house, roof and breezeway to prevent the re from reaching our home and family. He worked diligently until the re ghters arrived only minutes later. Once Josh Rimes from LFD and the rest of his re ghters arrived they moved in quickly and began battling what they referred to as an extremely “ erce” structure re. It took them until dawn to put the re out, but our home was not touched. Many times our emergency department workers go unnoticed for the work that they do for us. The community takes them for granted, “that’s their job,” or have no problem complaining about something that didn’t go the way they wanted it to go. But we are here to say thank you, thank you, thank you to Josh Rimes and his team, who worked consistently and diligently to prevent the re from spreading to our home and to Deputy Josh Woods for going above and beyond the call of duty, as well as the other deputies; and for this we are forever grateful to all of them. We cannot thank you guys enough, all of the emergency of cers involved for a “job well done” and for protecting and keeping our family and home safe. Words cannot express our gratitude for the commitment and dedication to the people of our community that all of you so selflessly give. We personally feel extremely blessed to have men and women like you protecting our families. God bless you!

Witch’s Brew September 25, 2014 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – Members of Cape Coral’s Korean War Veterans of Southwest Florida Chapter 155 established a scholarship endowment for military students attending Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). For the last nine years the chapter has funded $1,000 scholarships for a veteran or the sibling of a veteran from Southwest Florida who is registered at FSW, but this year the organization decided to establish a $15,000 endowment to augment its annual scholarship giving. “Approximately ve years ago it was voted on by the organization to raise funds to start an endowment in our chapter’s name, knowing that this would be on record long after we’re gone,” said Bob Kent, treasurer for KWVA Chapter 155. “The funds for this effort have come from several raf es, soliciting at local establishments such as Wal-Mart and RaceTrac, Aviation Day at Page Field, and several small grants from various corporations.” On average, 400 students enrolled at FSW receive veteran’s bene ts each year. While these students are each eligible for the $1,000 scholarship, the endowment paves the way for more of them to receive this vitally important assistance. Veterans at the college train in all variety of elds that bene t the Southwest Florida community. “I am immensely thankful for the scholarships I received from the Korean War Veterans. They helped me meet my nancial obligations in the trying times of the recession,” said FSW student and veteran Carlos Barahona, who explained that he was onl y able to nd temporary work while going to school. “Some of these obligations included purchasing computer parts and peripherals, paper and ink, and anything involving transportation to and from school like gas, car insurance and maintenance.” Barahona, who is in his nal year of completing a Bachelor of Arts in Education at FSW, concluded that the scholarship played a major role in his success at the college and he was proud to be a part of a culture that cared for fellow comrades. Arlene M. Knox, senior director of Development and Planned Giving at the FS W Foundation, said the endowment is an exciting chance to continue supporting our veterans. “The annual scholarships have been so helpful for veteran-students at FSW and this endowment is not only ensuring that the giving continues, but that more of these students will be eligible in the future,” she said. Florida SouthWestern State College is Southwest Florida’s largest and one of the most affordable institutions of higher education. FSW will debut its intercollegiate athletics program in the fall 2015. Visit www. FSW.edu for more information.

Arlene received the award from Bruce Boyd, a “past” Lt. Governor for Kiwanis Division 19. In addition, several names were misspelled in the September 25 edition of the Caloosa Belle: The “outgoing” President of Kiwanis was Arlene Bettencourt; “incoming” President was Mary Ruth Prouty; “secretary” is Karan Roach.

Rotary lights the wayGovernor Doragh said the theme for the current Rotary year, ‘Light Up Rotary’ “makes us think what Rotary is, it illuminates Rotary, (shows) a clear path forward, a well-lit path. “What are we doing? Let’s ignite Rotary, set off a bon re, reworks, so people will join the 2,200 members we now have in the district.” Discussing Rotary’s premier worldwide program, polio eradication, DG Doragh said “there is nothing further from the truth that the polio ght is not being won. The only way (that would happen) is if we quit. Rotarians don’t quit!” When the eradication drive started, an estimated 1,000 people a day contracted polio – now it’s down to just one. Two of the three types of polio have been eradicated, and “we believe we are on the verge of completing the job” by wiping out the remaining strain. Most cases are now in mountainous northern Pakistan but local leaders are buying into the inoculation program. Governor Pete said, Rotary has started the blue bucket program to collect coins for Alzheimer’s research. Florida was the last state to get involved in this speci c Rotary Program. Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is aimed at developing leadership skills among high school students. A similar program Seminar for Tomorrows Leaders (S4TL) for junior year students. is supported by the LaBelle Rotary Club. Governor Pete closed his visit by saying this Rotary year we want to hold up a torch for the world… it’s better to light even one candle than none.” Pictured from left: Fred Kobie, Assistant Governor Area 6, Holly Kobie, President Rotary Club of LaBelle, Cindy Doragh, District Governor Elect and Pete Doragh, District 6960 Governor.

Roald Dahl is one of the most famous children’s authors of all time; writing such classics as James and The Giant Peach, The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Esio Trot, George’s Marvelous Medicine, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Matilda. The 4th Grade at Country Oaks Elementary is excited to kick off our year-long author study by reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. Students are creating their own ‘Dream Jars’, which mimic an important element from the story and allow students to express themselves creatively in their literature and writing studies. Students will also be working on designing mouse size inventions to go along with Roald Dahl’s book The Witches, combining science and language arts. The opportunity to study the books of Roald Dahl allows the students an opportunity to study an author’s style in writing over multiple pieces of literature, discerning a writer’s voice, making text to text connections and text to self connections. Students will be using their books to engage in critical thinking skills and enhance their depth of knowledge through strategic and extended thinking activities. The 4th grade at COES looks forward to sharing their projects throughout the year. COE students study author Roald Dahl

LaBelle area residents may be interested in an organization called Open Hearts and Homes, which allows an orphan from foreign country to live with a local family for a few weeks. This orphan hosting program allows these kids, many of whom have never had the opportunity to share in the family experience, to do so. During their few weeks here, many of these children can receive health care they w ould not have access to in their home country. Although many of these children are eventually adopted in the US, it is not expected that Open Hearts and Homes families adopt them. This is simply an opportunity for the children and the families to get acquainted and provide recreational and culture experiences. Since the cost of bringing a child over here to participate is about $2,800, participating families, as well as anyone interested, are asked to raise funds for “their” child. If you’d like more information on how to bring American families in touch with children in Eastern European nations and provide unique experiences for all, you can contact Stephanie Conner at 863-517-0542.

20 Caloosa Belle October 2, 2014 The gift, which will directly bene t the college by providing new technology and student scholarships, was presented by SWFL Children's Charities trustees and event co-chairs Elaine Hawkins and Dorothy Fitzgerald from the nonpro t organization on Aug. 7. "The FSW Foundation is committed to strengthening educational programs that support our local economy by soliciting inv estment opportunities for new technology that better prepare our graduates," said Dr. Louis J. Traina, vice president of institutional advancement at FSW. "It's the support from local foundations like the SWFL Children's Charities that makes it all possible." "Students who graduate from the School of Health Professions are part of the driving force of our local economy, not only providing vital services to the public but choosing to live and raise families here in Southwest Florida," said Dr. Jeff Allbritten, president of FSW. "With this generous gift from the SWFL Children's Charities, we will continue to ensure that graduates are highly skilled w hen they step foot into this growing job market." The gift came at an opportune moment as FSW invests in new technology to keep nursing education cutting edge while also satisfying recent state legislation that permits an increase in the total clinical training that can be achieved through simulation, from 25 to 50 percent. "We like to give to organizations that make a difference in our community," said Hawkins. "Seeing the enthusiasm for the new technology and how it bene ts our community is what motivates the Wine Fest trustees to keep giving year after year." The FSW School of Health Professions offers two bachelor's degrees, 11 associate's degrees, and six certi cate programs, preparing local students with the credentials to work in nearly every health-related eld. Dr. Marie Collins, dean of the School of Health Professions, said that the gift from SWFL Children's Charities will support nursing, respiratory care and dental hygiene clinical education in the areas of pediatric and obstetric care. The college will speci cally use the gift to invest in: Scholarships for nursing, respiratory care and dental hygiene students A birthing mother and newborn simulator A pediatric simulator A mechanical ventilator for skills practice on pediatric patients A panograph X-ray machine for pediatric patients treated at the Dental Hygiene Clinic "Clinical and lab fees are necessary to support the complex needs of health professions programs. These fees quickly add up. Scholarships are critical for our students so they can focus less on the nancial aspects and focus more on obtaining the highest level of clinical competency and experiences." said Collins. According to Collins, simulations at FS W ensure that every student receives an equal and consistent educational experience. "We all bene t from health care and education," added Fitzgerald. "They are the fundamentals of any great community." "Through the use of simulation education, we can guarantee that every student has equal experiences with medical scenarios such as complications which ma y occur during and immediately after birth. These simulated scenarios may be repeated over and over again to allow students to gain the skills and con dence needed for optimal real world patient care." Over the last six years, SWFL Children's Charities has raised more than $11.6 million in donations to bene t only three local charities serving children: The Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida, the Music Therapy Program at Florida Gul f Coast University and the Pediatric Nursing Program at Florida SouthWestern State College.
