IHS takes win over DeSoto


By Moises Diaz
Special to the Immokalee Bulletin
The Immoka-
lee Indians trav-
eled to Bulldog
Stadium last Fri-
day with hopes
to stay ahead in
district play but
fell just short of i i
a victory. Desoto
high school was
able to capital-


ize on Indian turnovers to edge by
Immokalee 43 to 29.
The Indians cut the lead, 29 to
21, in the 4th quarter with a 10
yard touchdown pass from QB
Tshumbi Johnson to wide receiver
Xavier Richardson with 7:26 to go
in the game. After a Bulldog touch-
down Immokalee had the ball on
their own 29 yard line. On 4th and
10, Johnson threw an interception
which gave the Bulldogs excellent

the 2011 Relay for Life of Immoka-
lee's kickoff event from 5:30-6:30
p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28, at the

member those who have lost their
battle and to support those who are
still fighting this disease. The 2011
Relay For Life of Immokalee will be
on April 1-2, 2011, at The Immoka-
lee High School. For information

With the game now 43 to 21 and Immoka-
lee trailing, senior line backer Jordan Alce
return a 65 yard kickoff for a touchdown to
raise Immokalee's hopes of a comeback. On
the following onside attempt, Desoto recov-

The Indians have a by week and look
to regroup as they face Estero high school
on November 5th in the last district game
for both teams. All four teams are now tied

those teams head to the state playoffs. If
Hardee wins, Immokalee could be the win-
ner of the group with a win against Estero,
having already beaten Hardee earlier in the
year. Immokalee haven't lost to Estero in all
3 games played.


Christmas Around the World plans made


Christmas Around the World Parade and
Gala will host it's annual Christmas Event on
Dec. 11, 2010.
Our Christmas committee is so honored
to select two of our Immokalee leaders.
Grand Parade Marshall is Lt. Michael Dolan
and Co-Parade Marshall is Tony Sanchez.
Lt. Mike Dolan is a Lieutenant for Collier
County Sheriff's Office and served as our
Sheriff's Substation Commander while in
Immokalee.
He grew up in west Texas. Having lived
as a cowboy in Texas in his youth, and lived
with migrant workers during his youth, Lt.
Dolan grew to love the culture and has an
affinity for hard work.
Lt. Dolan, worked as our substation
commander for more than 7 years. Dur-
ing that time he was successful in devel-
oping and maintaining critical community
partnerships that help reduce crime and
increase the quality of life in Immokalee.
Those partnerships came through develop-
ing personal relationships with those who
live and work in Immokalee, people like
our whole community. As Lt. Dolan spoke
to community groups through out Collier
County, he coined the phrase, "This is not
your father's Immokalee." Drug dealers no
longer go unchecked as they try and "own"
a street corner to sell their drugs. Drunks no
longer stagger down our streets as they walk
from bar to bar. Dilapidated trailers, run
down businesses, and overgrown lots once
used for prostitution and drugs have been
torn down and replaced with maintained
green space. Immokalee is not our father's
Immokalee, it's a place we are all proud to
call "My Home." GO Indians!
Tony Sanchez was born in Clewiston, and
grew up in Immokalee and is a member of
the Seminole Tribe of Florida. He graduated
from Immokalee High School where he was

Board of Directors and officers.
"We are so grateful for the talent, com-
mitment, and leadership of our Board of Di-
rectors," states Susan McManus, President of
The Education Foundation. "We're looking
forward to providing significant opportuni-
ties for collaboration between our commu-

mitted to education, and we understand


that we all can play a role supporting our
schools," continued Grover. "We encourage
every individual in our community to find
their seat and get on the bus!"
This year, The Education Foundation
has launched an initiative called Get on the
BusT, which is intended to inspire everyone
to consider how they might get involved in
supporting education. A significant compo-
nent will be a new website, launching soon,

for parents and students, schools, and the
community to support each other through
education.

Letters to the Editor


Weather Forecast


Residents of Immokalee
Please pay particular attention to what
FDOT is saying below. The environmental
forces within the state are making a move
to remove a number of future road projects
from consideration due to what they perceive
as environmental concerns. What is not be-
ing concerned is your health, safety and wel-
fare. It is of paramount importance that you
attend the FDOT meeting and express your
dismay to any consideration being given to
the "no build" option. In addition ask about
the future Immokalee S.R. 29 bypass. I am
sure that you will be as disappointed with
FDOT response to that question as I was.
Jim Coletta
Collier County Commission

Public Hearing: S.R. 29 from
S.R. 82 C.R. 80A
The Florida Department of Transporta-
tion is holding a public hearing on Tuesday,
Nov. 16, 2010 to present a conceptual plan
developed for future improvements to S.R.
29 from S.R. 82 to C.R. 80A in Collier and
Hendry Counties. The hearing will be held at
the LaBelle Civic Center, 481 W Hickpochee
Avenue, in LaBelle.
Throughout the S.R. 29 Project Develop-
ment & Environment study, the department
continues to consider a "no build" alterna-
tive as an option, although the preferred al-
ternative is to expand S.R. 29 from two to
four lanes. Subsequent project phases (de-
sign, right-of-way, and construction) pres-
ently are not funded in the department's five
year work program. Some right-of-way ac-
quisition is required to widen the road and
build stormwater ponds.
Staff will be available at 6 p.m. on Nov. 16,
to answer questions and to discuss the study
and proposed roadway improvements. Il-
lustrations and study documents also will
be available for review. At 7 p.m. the formal
hearing begins and our staff will make a
presentation about the preferred alternative.
People may make comments about the study
and preferred alternative for the record ver-
bally or in writing at the hearing. They also
may send comments to the department (by
e-mail or U.S. postal service). Comments re-
ceived by Nov. 26, are considered part of the
public hearing. The department anticipates
submitting the study document and our rec-
ommendations for improvements to S.R. 29
to the Federal Highway Administration for
approval January 2011.
The department has notified property
owners within 300 feet of the project as well
as public officials, organizations and citizens
expressing interest in this project about the
upcoming public hearing. Project informa-
tion and illustrations related to proposed
improvements will be available for public
review from October 25 through Nov. 26, at
two locations. One is the Barron Library, 461
South Main Street, in LaBelle and the second
is the department's office, 801 North Broad-
way Avenue, in Bartow.
If you're aware of anyone needing trans-
lation services or special accommodations
at the hearing, please ask him or her to
get in touch with the department's project
manager, Tony Sherrard, at least seven days
before the hearing so he can make these ar-


rangements. Mr. Sherrard may be reached
by telephone at 800-292-3368 or by e-mail at
antone.sherrard@dot.state.fl.us.
If you have questions about the depart-
ment's study for S.R. 29 from S.R. 82 to C.R.
80A, please don't hesitate to let me know.
We look forward to the public hearing and
the opportunity to present information to
community members about proposed im-
provements to this significant transportation
corridor in Collier and Hendry Counties.
Sincerely,
Stanley M. Cann, P.E.

Smaller government will...
Republicans want a smaller government,
but this would give more power to the large
corporations. We already know what large
corporations like banking, oil, insurance,
pharmaceutical and manufacturing are ca-
pable of, whenever government oversights
are present. A smaller government will
empower large corporations to exploit the
middle class and put more small businesses
in jeopardy.
As large corporations gain more freedom
to operate, we will gradually lose a govern-
ment of the people, by the people and for
the people.

Edison Collegiate High School-Collier

receives unanimous district approval


The Edison Collegiate High School Col-
lier took another step closer to reality yester-
day when the Collier County School Board
unanimously approved its application at its
October meeting held at Immokalee High
School. Earlier this week, the Collier County
Public Schools' Charter School Review Com-
mittee recommended approval of Edison's
application to the full board.
"This approval solidifies the groundwork
for another strong partnership between
Edison State College and the Collier County
School District," said Dr. Jeffery Allbritten,
President, Edison State College Collier Cam-
pus. "We look forward to working with the
school district to create new educational op-
portunities for students in Collier County."
The next steps, said Allbritten, are the
development of the curriculum for the high
school, hiring a principal and building the
school.
A partnership with Jackson Laboratory, if
the project comes to Collier County, would
add further benefits for students.
"This will provide an amazing opportu-
nity for students in Collier County to study
and interact with some of the preeminent
researchers working on the very frontiers
of scientific discovery," said Allbritten, who
added that the current planning is to locate
the collegiate school on the grounds of the
biomedical village in eastern Collier County.
The collegiate school is STEM-(Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)


focused with a four-year curriculum. In ad-
dition to their high school diploma, students
would also have the opportunity to simulta-
neously earn an associate degree.
Admissions decisions would be based on
applicant records and test scores, teacher
and community recommendations, college
placement scores, and interviews with par-
ents and students. If more than 100 qualified
applicants are identified, students would be
selected through a lottery system.
The proposed Edison Collegiate High
School -Collier will be funded by the State
of Florida and open under a charter issued
by the Collier County School Board. Edison
State College Trustees would establish poli-
cies and provide oversight for school opera-
tions.
Planned for a fall 2013 opening, the
school will accept 100 ninth grade students.
By the fourth year, the school is targeted to
have 400 students in grades 9-12. The Collier
school would be the third for Edison State
College, which has successfully launched
charter schools in Charlotte and Lee coun-
ties.
The Edison State College Collier Campus
has an annual enrollment of over 4,000 stu-
dents. Opened in 1992, the 80-acre campus
is located off Collier Boulevard at 7007 Lely
Cultural Parkway, three miles north of Ta-
miami Trail East.


Students First


Thank you Mrs. Howard
By Joe Landon
Collier County District Schools
The School Dis-
trict of Collier County
is recognizing a mile-
stone in the career of
one of our outstand-
ing principals. But to
do that, and to frame
the accomplishment,
we need to travel
back in time:
*The year was
1960 (the date, actu-
ally, August 22, 1960 Dorcas Howard
a long, long time
ago).
*Dwight D. Eisenhower was President.
*"It's Now or Never," by Elvis, was the
number one song on the radio, and "Gun-
smoke" the top-rated show on TV.
SThe cost of a gallon of regular gas was
25-cents. Average pay about $300 per
month, and rent about $100 per month.
*And, on August 22, 1960, a little more
than 50 years ago, Dorcas Franklin (later
to become Dorcas Howard) was hired by
the Board of Public Instruction of Collier
County as an elementary teacher at Bet-
hune School in Immokalee. The rest, as
they say, is history.
Today Dorcas Howard, who was mar-
ried to Huey Howard in 1963, is Principal
of Immokalee's Village Oaks Elementary


O -ct Schoo, been since 1991.
(4r t School School, and has
o If you spend a
S 1 day with Dorcas,
you'll easily see
how much she
V loves her job and
'ON her students. She
SCollier Cao seems to know
each of her 598
current students personally, and she has
touched the lives of literally thousands of
students over the course of her long and
distinguished career. Dorcas Howard pro-
vides us with a shining example of commit-
ment, dedication, and loyalty. She is pas-
sionate about public education -a grand
lady, yet so unassuming! Dorcas Howard is
someone we are privileged to know, some-
one we are fortunate to have on the school
district team.
Mrs. Howard was recognized by the
School Board during last Thursday's Board
Meeting in Immokalee. She exchanged
hugs with Chief Instructional Officer Mar-
tha Hayes and the five School Board Mem-
bers, with husband Hueybyher side. It was
a total surprise for her. Current and former
teachers and staff from Village Oaks were
there in force to support their beloved Prin-
cipal, many wearing school colors purple

bouquet of 50 purple and white roses. As-
sistant Principal Lynda Walcott reports that
Mrs. Howard is still smiling to this day, as is
everyone who knows and loves her.


Parents reminded of students' days off


The School District of Collier County's
2010-2011 school calendar includes two
Hurricane make up Days which are sched-
uled for Thursday, Nov. 11, and Friday, Nov.
12. What this means for students and par-
ents is that all Collier County Public Schools
will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 11, and
Friday, Nov. 12, since we fortunately have
had no need this year to close schools be-
cause of bad weather.
These will be days off unless some-


thing develops in the tropics before then
that would force the closure of schools.
While the official Atlantic hurricane season
doesn't end until November 30th, accord-
ing to the National Hurricane Center, there
is no activity in the tropics that currently
poses a threat to Florida.
The district's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Administrative Center, and all district of-
fices, will be open for business as usual on
Nov.11 and 12.

LWIT partnerships create strong program


The Automotive Service Technology stu-
dents at Lorenzo Walker Institute of Tech-
nology (LWIT) had a recent opportunity to
thank their benefactors. Representatives
from Lowe's and Germain Lexus of Naples
were on campus so that the students, in-
structors, and administrators could person-
ally show their gratitude for several gener-
ous donations made to the program this
past year.
Lowe's is a new business partner with the
program. They provided the program with a
state-of-the-art Cobalt tool box and a full set
of tools. Germain Lexus of Naples is also a
partner and have donated a 2006 Lexus 130
to the program. "In an industry like auto
service, the technology changes constantly
and it is vital that we provide our students
relevant hands-on experience that will make


them successful in the workplace," said
LWIT Principal Jeanette Johnson. Many
Germain service technicians have been em-
ployed directly out of the program.
Instructor Eduardo Cruz described him-
self as an "ambassador" for the program,
going out and cultivating relationships with
the community.
Automotive Services Technology is of-
fered as a vocational certificate program at
LWIT. Prospective students are encouraged
to contact the school for more information
about enrolling. The shop also provides re-
pair services to the general public, depend-
ing on availability.

Lori Snell is the new pastor in the com-
munity of Immokalee. On Friday, Oct. 1, at
the 120th Session of the South Annual Con-
ference of the African Methodist Episcopal
Church (A.M.E.C), Bishop McKinley Young,
the presiding prelate of the Eleventh Episco-
pal District of the A.M.E.C, which includes
440 churches in the state of Florida and the
Bahamas, read the pastoral appointments
for over 100 ordained ministers, of which
several would receive their first pastoral ap-
pointment, ever. When he read the appoint-
ments for those ministers who would be ap-
pointed to serve at one of the 20 churches
in the Central District of the South Annual
Conference, which includes Immokalee,
much to her surprise and elation, Rev. Lori
Snell heard her name being called, at which
time she was appointed as senior pastor of
Allen Chapel A.M.E Church, which is located
at 208 S. 3rd Street in Immokalee. Rev. Snell,
who was ordained an itinerant elder in the
A.M.E.C in 2007, humbly and gratefully, ac-
cepted the appointment.
After ten years of faithfully working side
by side with her husband of twenty years,
Rev. Kelvin Snell, who serves as the senior
pastor of Bethel A.M.E.C of Moore Haven,
Florida, Rev. Snell finally came to the realiza-
tion that her calling had not been fulfilled. Af-
ter prayer and discussion with her husband
and family, all understood and agreed that
God was calling her into pastoral ministry.
After securing the blessings of her husband
and her three sons: Joel (19), Gabriel (18)
and Daniel (16), she was at ease with the
direction in which the Lord was taking her.
Rev. Lori, who was born and raised in
Naples, and is a graduate of Naples High
School and Johnson C. Smith University in
Charlotte, N.C, where she earned a B.A de-
gree in mass communications, absolutely
loves and has a passion for the people and
needs of Immokalee. She has taught at Pine-
crest Elementary School for over ten years,
where she has served in several leadership.
The students of Pinecrest know her as the
"singing teacher," because whenever she is
walking with her students across the cam-
pus, she is usually heard singing a variety of
songs to them that promote learning and the
display of positive behavior.
She has only been at Allen Chapel, one of
the oldest churches in Immokalee, for three
weeks, and already she has walked through
various Immokalee neighborhoods passing
out hundreds of flyers and plans to pass out

many more, inviting people to come to Allen
Chapel. Also, she has put the plans in action
to host a Saturday morning book club, called
Read Every Day (R.E.D Book Club), that will
be geared toward students in grades 1-5, to
promote literacy. She has partnered with Mc-
Donald's and Pinecrest Elementary School
to help bring this program, which will start in
November, to fruition. Also, on Oct. 31, Rev.
Snell and the members of the Chapel, as she
calls the church, will host their first Fall Fun
Festival, which will afford a safe and fun en-
vironment for children in grades K-5 to come
and enjoy free food, games and prizes. Every
Sunday, Rev. Snell preaches always ends the
service with individual prayer for those who
desire it. She is a genuine giver, and firmly
believes that God blesses a cheerful giver. At
each 11 a.m. Sunday worship service and at
the 5 o'clock Wednesday night bible studies,
Rev. Lori asks the members and participants
to look in their worship bulletins for a sticker
or some type of clue which she gives them.
If they find the sticker or clue, she gives
them gift certificates to various Immokalee
businesses. Rev. Snell says that this not only
promotes a jovial church atmosphere and
builds community within the church, but it
helps the local businesses. Also on Wednes-
day nights, she stops by a local pizza restau-
rant and buys hot, fresh pizzas for those who
attend bible study. No one ever knows what
she will have on Sundays. So far she has
brought freshly made homemade brownies
and other goodies. Welcome Rev. Snell!

Annual fishing clinic reels in another successful outing


For the fourth consecutive year, the Flori-
da Sea Grant/University of Florida Extension
Program partnered with the Panther/10,000
Islands National Wildlife Refuges and Port of
Islands Marina to host a kids' fishing clinic
in honor of National Wildlife Refuge Week.
Each year students from Collier County's Mi-
grant Education Program are invited to attend
the clinic which was held recently at Port of
Islands Marina (525 Newport Drive). A total
of 49 students from Eden Park, Highlands,
Lake Trafford, Manatee, Pinecrest, Tommie
Barfield, Village Oaks, and Immokalee Com-
munity Elementary Schools; East Naples,
Manatee, and Marco Island Charter Middle
Schools; and Lely, Lorenzo Walker Techni-
cal, and Naples High Schools took part in


this year's clinic.
The program incorporated goals such as
promoting the importance of the National
Wildlife Refuges, and engaging local youth
with a positive outdoor learning experience
by teaching them fundamental and ethical
fishing skills. Students rotated through a se-
ries of skills stations including casting, knot
tying, common tackle, fishing regulations,
and ethical angling practices, before the
culminating activity of fishing along the ma-
rina's seawall. The students caught tarpon,
snappers, and mojarras! Half the group en-
joyed pizza while the other half went on a
manatee boat tour, and then they switched.
The event is a great example of team
work. The School District of Collier Coun-


ty Migrant Education Program provided
bus transportation and chaperones, Col-
lier County Parks and Recreation donated
shrimp, Marco Island Sport Fishing Club sent
volunteers, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission sent an officer, and the
refuge sent staff and volunteers to teach the
skills stations. The Port of the Islands Marina
also donated the lunch (pizza), Double R's


Manatee and Nature Tours provided the eco-
boat tours, and Fish Florida donated the rod
and reels and tackle boxes that the students
got to keep and take home -one of many
highlights of the day.

County Florida Sea Grant Extension Agent
Bryan Fluech 239-438-5594.

Kids from all over Collier County "went fishing at the fourth annual Florida Sea

Islands Marina. Kids rotated from station to station learning everything from
species identification (Left) to casting and reeling in the big one. The clinic was
all part of a Migrant Education program for kids in elementary to high school.
