Domestic violence has prob-
ably been around as long as there
have been relationships between
people. In all that time, you might
think we would have learned to
live with one another to just get
along.
However, the sad truth is, we
still need things like Domestic Vio-
lence Awareness Month to direct

tragedy.
The shelter, located in Naples, accepts
victims from all over Collier County. It began
as a few individuals trying to help out.
The shelter incorporated in the Inid-1980s
and in 1989, had 20 beds. In 2002, the shel-
ter had 60 beds. Although wornen are the
vast majority of clients, it is also open to men
and has a kennel for farnily pets.
The shelter's Development and Public
Relations Officer Mary Ann Green said of-
ten the farnily pet can be used by abusers.
By threatening to harm a beloved pet, the
abuser can keep control over their spouse
or partner.
Ms. Green said the average stay for a
domestic violence victim is 20-40 days, but
there is a transitional program which can
last for two years.
Since last December, she added, the shel-
ter has seen its highest census ever. Right
now, there are 56 shelterees and eight pets
housed there.
She said she is not sure of the reason for
the rise. Although the economy may cer-


tainly create additional stress which can lead sary.
to increased domestic violence, it is not the Staff also works with employers so they

Irnrokalee Children's Fair, Vigil & Peace
March happens Tuesday, Oct. 26, at 3 p.In.
Fair; 6 p.In. March on Main Street. The fair
will be at the Sports Complex, 505 Escarn-
bia Street.
Join The Shelter's Irnrokalee Outreach
Office for an afternoon of awareness and
fun! The day begins with a Children's Fair
complete with garnes and refreshments, as
well as booths by local service agencies, fol-
lowed by a Candlelight Vigil renernbering
those lost to domestic violence and honor-
ing victims and survivors.
At 6 p.In., the cornrunity joins Shelter
staff and volunteers for a police-escorted
Peace March on Main Street, advocating for
peace in our hornes.

30, 9 a.In. to 2 p.In., at the Collier County

will provide a presentation on intimate part-
ner violence and the impact of abuse on
one's health during this cornrunity event.


know what to do if the abuser should show
up at the victirn's job.
One of the first things staff does is to help
the victim devise a safety plan. Ms. Green
said that, on average, a victirn will leave their
abuser seven times before making the final
break. That means, they need a plan of ac-
tion to help then get through until they have
the courage to make the break permanent.
Two thrift stores provide one third of the
funding for the shelter. The rest cornes front'
fundraisers, grants and donations.
In Irnrokalee, the Linguistics Cornru-
nity Meeting will take place Tuesday, Oct. 12,
9 a.In. to 11 a.rn. This meeting is for con-
Inunity leaders and nonprofit agencies in
Irniokalee and features a panel of speak-
ers discussing services available for children
and domestic violence victims within the
cornrunity.
The Seminole Tribe hosts the Red Ribbon
Parade on Monday, Oct. 18, beginning at
3:30 p.In at the Seminole Tribe of Florida Ad-
Ininistrative Building, 301 Lena Frank Drive.
The Shelter will participate in the parade,
and have an informational booth, as part of
their Red Ribbon Week, a drug prevention


cause.
"Batterers abuse because they are 'al-
lowed' to," she said. If a person loses their
job, that creates more financial stress and
also may lead to the abuser being at hone
more there is just more opportunity for in-
cidents to occur.
In 2009, 1,824 Irnrokalee clients were
provided with outreach services 197 of
those were children.
When it is no longer safe for a victim to
remain in their cornrunity, the shelter is the
last resort. Of course, having to go to the
shelter in Naples means the victim and chil-
dren are removed from farnily and friends,
from their job if they have one and the chil-
dren from their school. Their safety is of pri-
mary importance.
At the shelter, staff tries to make life as
normal as possible with support groups and
after school activities for the children. Par-
ents are required to take care of their chil-
dren, cook for themselves and do their own
laundry. They teach life skills to the adults
and provide links to other services. They
help then learn things like how to balance a
checkbook, budgeting and cooking if neces-

October is residns

Rights 1Month
Today more than 160,000 Floridians live
in nursing homes and similar long-term care
settings, and many are unaware of their
rights and the resources available to protect
and defend them.
Every October, Florida's Long-Term Care
Ombudsman Program partners with the
Office of the Governor to secure a guber-
natorial proclamation of Residents' Rights
Month. The occasion calls attention to the
fundamental rights of Florida's frailest elders
to be treated with dignity and respect, and to
have a say in decisions affecting their care.
Long-term care residents have state-man-
dated rights including fair and courteous
treatn entm privacy, voting and control over

The Ombudsman Program is a govern-
ment-funded resource available to help
defend residents' rights and ensure their
safety and well-being. Sadly, a volunteer
ombudsman is sometimes the only visitor
or voice a nursing home or assisted living
facility resident has. As Florida celebrates
Residents' Rights Month, I encourage com-

Collier C~auO Kinsley. The topic
for the next acad-

p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19, is reading. Then
math will be the topic in November (at the
meeting scheduled for Nov. 16). Speaking
of math, the school district's new math
program, for students in Kindergarten
through Grade 5, is talked about in-depth
on the current edition of the Parent Con-
nection TV show. Teacher Lisa Young and
the district's Elementary Math Coordinator,
Amber Nottidge, appear on the show and
discuss the new curriculum in great detail.
Meantime, Pinecrest Elementary School's
Math Coach, Felicia Taylor, tells us that the
new math program has students "investi-
gating" math concepts, and it places teach-
ers in a new role -that of "facilitators of
student learners." So if we have your inter-

Immokalee Bulletin


WASHINGTON -Military nernbers
whose service was involuntarily extended,
or whose retirement was suspended be-
tween Sept. 11, 2001 and Sept. 30, 2009, due
to stop loss are entitled to retroactive pay-
Inents of $500 for each month they were ex-
tended, according to Department of Defense
officials. But the deadline to receive those
benefits is rapidly drawing to a close. The
deadline to apply for the benefits has been
extended to Dec. 31, rather than the original
deadline of Oct. 21.
"You served with honor. You did your
duty. And when your country called on you


again, you did your duty again. Now, it's
time to collect the special pay that you de-
serve," said President Barack Obarna during
a recent White House announcement.
COnly about 58,000 of the 145,000 eligible
<:lairns have been paid, leaving more than
$300 million available to eligible veterans.
The average payout for each veteran is close
to $4,000. The president said that the pro-
grarn has caused sorne confusion and skepti-
cisrn among those who have served. "Sone
veterans think this is sorne sort of girnrick
or scarn, or that it's a way for the govern-
inent to call you back to service. Nothing is
further from the truth. You worked hard. You


earned thisrnoney. It doesn'trnatter whether
you were active or reserve, whether you're a
veteran who experienced 'Stop Loss' or the
survivor of a service nernber who did -if
your service was extended, you're eligible.".
The 2009 War Supplemental Appropria-
tions Act established the Retroactive Stop
Loss Special Pay and throughout the past
year the services have been reaching out to
eligible veterans, service nernbers and their
families through direct mail, veteran service
organizations and the media. Originally, by
law there is no authorization to make pay-
rnents on claims submitted after Oct. 21,
2010, but thanks to the extension, claims


made up until Dec. 31, will be authorized.
Do not delay in submitting your clairn and
use the Oct. 21, date as a reminder of the
new deadline. Eligible nernbers should
print, complete and sign Department of De-
fense Form 2944, Clairn for Retroactive Stop
Loss Payment.
The information can be found on
their service's stop loss web site, acces-
sible from: www.defense.gov/horne/
features/2010/0710_stoploss/, or call: Arrny:

on 14 plays to score their third touchdown
of the game. On 3rd down with 16 yards to
go on the Titan 22 yard line, QB Tshumbi
Johnson rolled out to his right and threw
up a prayer. The ball, which looked to be
easily caught by Titan defense back Derek
St. Claire, was tipped by Immokalee's own
wide receiver sophomore Xavier Richard-
son. Richardson came down with the ball
on the one yard line and quickly went into
the end zone.
On Golden Gate's next and final posses-
sion, Mouton took over rushing for 41 yards
and running out the clock.
This week the Indians host Hardee Senior
High in a district match on Friday night. The
Wildcats are coming off a disappointing lost
to the Avon Park Red Devils in a 3 to 0 shut-
out. Immokalee, who haven't lost a home
game, look to take an early lead in district
play with a win over Hardee.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m., let's show our In-
dian Pride and cheer on the football team in
its first district game this season.

Cal Ripken Leaguers learn
new skills in first season

This is a new season for the Cal Ripken
League in Immokalee, unfortunately only
one team was able to be formed on such a
short notice. There were two games played
in Lehigh Acres Flonida at Veterans Park this
past weekend. They were both heartbreak-
ers for Immokalee because the first game
according to Manager Trevino the players
were nervous because it was the first fall
game which Immokalee has never played
before and also a big difference in com-
parison to Little League. In the Cal Ripken
Division, one is able to lead off and steal,
and in Little League you have to wait for
the ball to reach the catcher before you are
able to leave the bag.
The second game was the real heart-
breaker because Immokalee was leading
up to the second inning and then mental
mistakes began to take over. As a result we
lost the game.
"We are very proud of our kids they have
played well. Most runs were scored on er-
rors and mental mistakes. The Immokalee
Pool Sharks will continue to improve as the
season progresses," stated William Trevi-
no, Jr. The Pool Sharks will have their next
home game on Oct. 9, at 1 p.m., Oct. 16, at
1 p.m., Oct. 18, at 6:30 p.m., and the Oct.
30, at 4 p.m.
Please come out and support our home
town team, The Immokalee Lions Club
will be in charge of concessions, if any one
would like to donate monetary funds or
items for the Immokalee Lions Club Com-
munity Yard Sales feel free to speak to one
of the members that are at the stand.
