Tomato Food

Safety Bill
TALLAHASSEE The Florida
House of Representatives passed
legislation by Representative Steve
Crisafulli (R Merritt Island) to pro-
tect Florida's tomato industry from
underserved public backlash. The
measure allows the Department of
Agriculture & Consumer Services
to adopt food safety standards for
the growing, harvesting, and pack-
ing of Florida-grown tomatoes.
"This is a jobs bill that will en-
sure Florida-grown tomatoes are
the safest in the country," stated
Representative Crisafulli.
This legislation comes in the
wake of a 2008 salmonella out-
break in the United States linked to
tainted domestically-grown toma-
toes. Though the outbreak was ul-

Prosperity comes to Immokalee


By Rick Heers
Special to the Immokalee Bulletin
This week I HOPE, operating out of First
Baptist Church,
has been blessed
by having 30 vol-
unteers in town
from Prosperity,
Pa. A group of
24 teenagers and 6
adult chaperones
flew into Fort
Lauderdale this
past Sunday and
are finishing up
the project begun
two weeks ago by
volunteer group Rick Heers
from Michigan. In
the past month I HOPE has had the privilege


of providing work projects for nearly 100
volunteers from Pennsylvania, Michigan,
Montana and West Virginia. These valuable
workers have contributed over $80,000 of in-
kind services for this local faith-based Long
Term Disaster Recovery Organization. This
week's group is from two Presbyterian con-
gregations in northwestern Pennsylvania,
and, while they've worked very hard during
the day, they have enjoyed the sunny weath-
er, sightseeing around south Florida and
taking an airboat ride around Lake Trafford.
Several in the group have been on previ-
ous missions trips, and they are certain that
Bethel Assemblies 'Ranch' has provided the
ultimate in housing experience for them on
the former Johnson Ranch property.


special to tne ImmoKalee bulletin/HIcK Heers
A group of about two dozen teens on Spring Break along with a few adults, ar-
rived in Immokalee to assist with repair projects on homes damaged through
one disaster or another. The group has performed in-kind services saving
thousands of dollars and making many homes "liveable" again for residents.

OF SERVICE IN IMMOKALEE." Done and or-
dered this 13th Day of April, 2010.
This Proclamation was signed by Fred
Coyle, Chairman, and Attest by: Dwight E.
Brock, Clerk.
Over 300 volunteers from The Church

Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, and
Naples are combining their resources, do-
nating their time and efforts to uplift the spir-
its of their neighbors who are suffering from
the economic hardship in Immokalee.
On Saturday, April 17, the first phase of
the Service Project has taken place. 10 crews
of 5 volunteers each were hard at work on
the homes around Immokalee and at one
church building, Assembly of God, located
on Ninth street. They were power-washed
in the preparation of fresh new paint for the
DOS on April 24. Many of the home owners
mentioned how great the power washing
crews were and were impressed and thank-
ful of the service.

Rainbow Trails Camp for children Local Weather


is now accepting
Hope HealthCare Services is now accept-
ing applications for Rainbow Trails, a camp
for children aged 6 to 17 and their families in
need of special support and counseling.
The all-day camp will take place on Satur-
day, June 12 at Treeline Elementary School
in Fort Myers. Rainbow Trails is provided at
no cost to families.
Rainbow Trails includes two programs
for children and families to meet their spe-
cific needs:
Campers and their families who have
experienced the loss a loved one within the
past year will gain a better understanding of
the loss and grief process. They will have the
opportunity to memorialize and say good-
bye to their loved one.
The camp also serves children who have
a long-term illness, along with their siblings
who may have lost some of their access to
Mom and Dad because of their brother or
sister's special needs. The families will learn
new skills to cope with changing family dy-
namics.
"At Hope, we know that loss, grief and ill-


applications
ness are natural events in life that children
may not fully understand," according to
Hope President and CEO Samira K. Beck-
with. "Through Rainbow Trails, we can help
to alleviate the tremendous emotional bur-
dens that families may be facing. When a
little six year-old says 'Thank you for helping
me,' we know we have made a difference."

The Immokalee Foundation


students really 'clean up'


While many college students were partying
at Fort Myers Beach during spring break, the
students with The Immokalee Foundation
chose to clean up after them.
A dozen Florida Gulf Coast University stu-
dents filled up more than 12 huge trash
bags with garbage collected from Fort My-
ers Beach and along Estero Boulevard last
Saturday. A couple of the students got in a
canoe to pick up fishing line and trash in the
water.
"One of our students who received a schol-
arship through The Immokalee Foundation
took the lead on this project," said Nancy
Omonte, college success coordinator for
The Immokalee Foundation. "They wanted
to clean up the environment and some of
these areas really needed it."
Brittany Gonzalez, 20, couldn't believe how
much trash she found along Estero Boule-
vard. She picked up everything from alu-
minum cans to baby wipes, she said. She
didn't realize what a difference she could
make by picking up trash. "This makes me
want to do more things for my community,"
she said. "It makes me want to contribute."
The Immokalee Foundation makes it a
requirement for its students to offer com-
munity service. Since 1991, the foundation


Immokalee's children through a variety of
programs that focus on mentorship, after-
school activities, college scholarships, the
development of vocational skills and incen-
tives for educational growth. In 2009, The
Immokalee Foundation served 2,700 chil-
dren through its seven core programs: Take
Stock in Children, Vocational Success, Col-
lege Success, Direct Scholarships, The First
Tee of Naples/Collier Program in Immoka-
lee, Immokalee Readers and Community
Grants
"Community service is a very important part
of our program and the students really enjoy
getting involved," Omonte said. "For college
students to get up and be ready at 8:30 a.m.
on a Saturday morning is very impressive."
Venes Scilis, 24, is glad he got up early to
help. "I picked up tons of cans and bottles,"
he said. "It's my responsibility to connect to
the environment. It's where we live and it's
a part of our lives."
The Immokalee Foundation offers a road
map toward a brighter future by providing
the children of Immokalee educational op-
portunities from early childhood through the
start of their professional careers. For more
information, call 239-430-9122 or visit www.

Students First


Highlights from Social
Media forum
By Joe Landon
Collier County District Schools
Monday evening's Community Forum
on Social Media can be viewed from the
comfort of your living room this week-
end on The Education Channel. Panelists
included Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, Naples
High School Principal Nancy Graham, a
high school student, two parents and oth-
ers. It was put on by the School District of
Collier County and the Naples Daily News.
The good sides and the risky sides of using
social media were explored in great depth.
This is must-see TV for you if you are the
parent of a middle or high school student,
or even mom or dad to a 5th or 6th grader
who is into testing, Facebook, MySpace,
YouTube, or any social media sites. Watch
the Community Forum on Social Media at
2 p.m. Saturday, April 24,) and at 2 p.m.
Sunday (April 25th) on The Education
Channel, Comcast cable 99. Social media
safety is all all about awareness, and watching
this forum will certainly make you aware.
Our hope is, because of our awareness,
we can stop the next social media tragedy
from taking place.
The month that's just wrapping up is
School Library Media Month across the
State of Florida. If you get the chance to visit
one of our 50 Collier County public schools,
you'll notice that our school media centers


strictt Schooj seem to be the hub of
S- each school. And the
media center of today
is in no way your "fa-
ther's school library."
Collier Sure, there are still
,,Collier Cou plenty of books in use,
and the media center,
just like the old school library, is there to
help promote literacy and the love of read-
ing. But the media center hooks students
up with the multitude of digital resources
that are out there today, all of the wonder-
ful technology that really enhances instruc-
tion. The media center helps students be-
come effective users of information which
helps them in school today and gets them
ready for the real world they'll face when
they graduate from school. In officially de-
claring the month of April "School Library
Media Month," the Governor credits media
centers with being a "very important asset
in the education of our young people." The
proclamation states that the "school library
media program contributes significantly to
student achievement by providing instruc-
tional support, resources, and services." In
my many visits to our schools, I have found
that the media specialist, the person in the
school that we used to call a librarian, is re-
ally an instructional partner and consultant
in the teaching and learning process taking
place each and every day in our schools.
So we salute our media specialists for the
work they do to help our teachers and stu-
dents become even more successful.


bpeciai to tme ImmoKalee ullietin/ImmoKaiee I-oundation
No partying for this group of busy college students. They spent their Spring
Break working on clean up efforts along Estero Boulevard and also on Ft. My-
ers Beach. About a dozen such students sacrificed their time for the clean up
effort.

Community encouraged to 'Transit Try-It' on Friday


In an effort to raise awareness of pub-
lic transit and healthier lifestyles in Collier
County, Collier Area Transit (CAT), Florida
Department of Transportation District One's
Commuter Services Program, Collier County
Health Department and the Smart Growth
Coalition, have joined together to host "Tran-
sit Try-It" Day on Friday, April 23.
During the event, which will be held
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., participants can
learn about the CAT bus system and try out
public transit to various destinations in the
county. To help encourage ridership, 50 all
day passes will be given away, starting at
11 a.m. For those that have a limited sched-
ule on this day, a shortened "Try It" route is
available to partake in lunch at the restau-
rants along Airport-Pulling Road. Riders may
board the special "Try-It" Route bus at the
CAT Main Passenger Transfer Center at the
Collier County Government Center off U.S.
41/Airport-Pulling Road or on Horseshoe
Drive. This special route will travel from
the Government Center, north on Airport-


Pulling Road to Horseshoe Drive, every half-
hour during the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. event. A
special CAT van will follow in case anyone
gets stranded. The regular fare is $1.50 per
trip; qualified reduced fare is 75 cents per
trip. Exact amounts please, drivers do not
carry change.
Supportive businesses on Airport-Pulling
Road have joined in the effort, by offering
promotions to encourage participants to
ride the CAT bus to their locations. Partici-
pants should show their bus pass or the spe-
cial Transit Try-It flyer available on the buses
to receive special promotions.
"On behalf of the Collier County Board
of County Commissioners, I encourage resi-
dents, visitors, and employees alike to use
this day to try our county's bus system, Col-
lier Area Transit (CAT)," said Collier County
Commission Chairman Fred Coyle. "Transit
Try-It Day is a great opportunity for all to
see the many benefits of public transporta-

tion, improved air quality, increased mobility

Coyle.
"Changes in travel behavior, as well as
changes in some worksite operations can
help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
and reduce a worksite's overall carbon foot-
print," said FDOT District One's Commuter
Services Program Director Christine Diaz.
"Considering that one gallon of gas pro-
duces 20 pounds of carbon dioxide, even
small changes in commuting behavior and
fuel usage can have a positive impact on the
environment," Diaz said.
"The goal of the Try-It Day is to encourage
people to try other options besides driving
their cars for local trips," said Dr. Joan Colfer,
Collier County Health Department Director.
"On average throughout the nation, people
who take public transportation get their 30
to 40 minutes of daily recommended physi-
cal activity, have lower rates of stress, and
live more active lifestyles," Colfer added.
CAT route maps are available at area li-
braries, employment agencies, government
office buildings, hospitals, Naples Area
Chamber of Commerce locations and vari-
ous area businesses and shopping centers.
Route and fare information can also be ob-
tained at: http://colliergov.net/CAT (The
current fare chart is also located at the end
of this release.
Bicycle racks are available on the front of
the CAT buses so anyone wishing to ride a
bike to the bus stop can then take it along
and continue riding to his/her destination.
Members of the Board of County Com-
missioners may be present during this
event.

FWC to stock Lake Trafford


Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission (FWC) will
stock 150,000 Florida largemouth bass fin-
gerlings in Lake Trafford, the largest lake
south of Lake Okeechobee. The 1,500-acre
freshwater lake is an important resource for
boating, fishing and wildlife-viewing.
Over the past few years, the lake has
been the focus of a multimillion-dollar,
multi-agency restoration project. So far, par-
ticipants have dredged the lake of 8 million
cubic yards of muck that, in the past, trig-
gered algal blooms and fish kills. To date,
the FWC has contributed over $3 million for
dredging and re-vegetation of Lake Trafford.
Dredging could be complete by 2011.
As part of the restoration, the FWC will
restock the lake with native largemouth bass
on Thursday, April 22. The agency will stock
an additional 50,000 advanced fingerlings
about four weeks from now. These finger-
lings are from the Florida Bass Conservation
Center in Richloam.
"We are working to re-establish a self-


sustaining, healthy fish population in the
lake," said FWC freshwater fisheries admin-
istrator Barron Moody. "We anticipate that
this stocking, and a similar effort planned for
next year, will bring about the return of lar-
gemouth bass fishing to the lake."
An 18-inch-minimum-length regulation
for largemouth bass specific to Lake Trafford
is in effect in anticipation of these stockings
and to protect the fish from premature har-
vest. For complete freshwater fishing regu-
lations, go to MyFWC.com/Fishing.
Fishing license sales help pay for stock-
ing and other bass conservation efforts.
Currently, the FWC is offering freshwater an-
glers a special value-added bonus package
when they upgrade to a five-year or lifetime
freshwater fishing license. For details, visit
MyFWC.com/License.
In addition, the FWC is seeking angler
input on the proposed draft Black Bass Man-
agement Plan. To learn more and complete
a survey, go to MyFWC.com/BassPlan_Sur-
vey.

given day, we certainly can go through a lot


of towels. These generous donations help
make the animals comfortable," said DAS

Special to the Immokalee Bulletin/IHS

Project Earth
Thanks to Key Club President, Maria Bustamonte, two brand new oak trees
were planted on Wednesday, April 14, on the north side of Immokalee High
School. The trees, which stand 8' and 10' respectively, were planted as a part
of the Key Club's Earth Day project. The idea to plant the trees began when
Bustamonte contacted Davenport Nursery to ask for trees to be donated to
the school for the Key Club's Earth Day project. The nursery was happy to
assist with the request, and donating two healthy oak trees.
