School Bus Schedules ...Pages 4 & 5 Household Budgeting Y our goals ...Page 5 Pepper Ranch hunting apps ...Page 9 By Patty BrantImmokalee Bulletin Homelessness has always been w ith us, but economic times like these take a bad situation and multiply it many times over. In Immokalee, Friendship House represents salvation for many of those who lose everything. Site Manager John Bianco said Friendship House is organized around the needs and goals of the individuals who reside there. Because there is lot of alternate housing in Immokalee for low income, seniors, the disabled, farmworkers and subsidized housing there are a lot of options for the homeless here. Friendship House provides a total of 44 beds, including 24 bunks for single men; and 20 for single women and families. There are four family rooms, which can be divided as needed to accommodate families. Friendship House is unique in the fact that it also allows single men with children, Mr. Bianco commented. The shelter is staffed 24/7, providing a secure place for those with precious little security in their lives. The average stay at Friendship House is 60 days. The shelter can also accommodate an over ow of 100 cots for short term events like harsh weather.

By Jane NichollSpecial to the Immokalee Bulletin This summer, children enrolled in the Guadalupe S.T.A.R. Summer School program at Pinecrest and Highlands Elementary Schools, had an opportunity to travel the world through books, games, videos and their own talent show. Some even became authors and illustrators for a week. "Around the World" is a theme which has been used for several years. The curriculum focuses on learning about the seven continents of the world using writing, reading and group sharing to engage in learning. Students study the geography of the countries and how the land itself shapes the livelihoods of people living in each country. Cultural aspects of people from different continents are studied, including the clothing the y wear, their music and dance, and foods they like to eat. The diversit y of the ags of the various countries are also studied and copies brighten many classrooms. Each teacher brings her own unique style and creativity to teaching each lesson. Making arts and crafts from different places is an important component of the program. Highlands Elementary School had a talent show and while all classrooms performed, the students gave "fun facts" about the countries on the North American Continent. Family members and friends attended the event. Both Pinecrest and Highlands Elementary Schools participated in writing and illustrating their own books about South Ameri‘S.T.A.R.’ students create their own booksSee STAR — Page 2 When Nicholas Gamez registered for iTECH's Heavy Equipment program, he knew it was a two-year commitment. What he didn't know is that he would get an opportunity to work on Caterpillar equipment as part of a paid internship after only 10 months. Heavy Equipment program opens at iTECH Center Special to the Immokalee Bulletin/ iTECHEleven students from iTECH’s Heavy Equipment program earned approximately $12 to $13 per hour at their summer internships. They also got great letters of recommendation, and some have been asked to apply for full-time positions when their training is complete. See iTECH — Page 2

Independent is owned by a unique trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of journalistic service to the citizens of the community. Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive on profit margins below industry standards. All after-tax surpluses are reinvested in Independents mission of journalistic service, commitment to the ideals of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and support of the communitys deliberation of public issues.We Pledgeƒ€To operate this newspaper as a public trust €To help our community become a better place to live and work, through our dedication to conscientious journalism. €To provide the information citizens need to make their own intelligent decisions about public issues. €To report the news with honesty, accuracy, purposeful neutrality, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compassion. €To use our opinion pages to facilitate community debate, not to dominate it with our own opinions. €To disclose our own conflicts of interest or potential conflicts to our readers. €To correct our errors and to give each correction the prominence it deserves. €To provide a right to reply to those we write about. €To treat people with courtesy, respect and compassion. P P u b l i s h e d b y can countries they had studied the previous week. They used the traditional writing process to organize, write, edit, illustrate, and nally publish their work in a traditional book format. Books were written from the perspective of children living in a particular country. Ms. Regina Hall's rst grade class at Pinecrest Elementary School wrote the book Our Lives in Venezuela. The book was written from the perspective of two children, Maria and Fernando. It included information about the beaches and famous waterfalls, festival celebrations, bull ghts, school life, and what the children enjoy eating. Ms.Regina Hall was pleased with what her students did to complete the project. "The children worked together helping each other. This is an important lesson in life," shared Ms. Hall. "They loved being authors and illustrators. Seeing their work in hard cover will stick with them as a memory." Additional information about the Guadalupe S.T.A.R. Summer or After School Programs can be found on the internet website http://www.gaudalupecenter.org or by calling 239-658-1999. STARContinued From Page 1 Nick spent the summer in Georgia overhauling equipment, working on excavators and wheel loaders; he took care of skid steers, track exchanges, and bucket exchanges, among other things. Gamez said, "The things I learned at iTECH de nitely prepared me for this internship. Caterpillar has some huge projects in the works, and this program was developed here in Immokalee partly because they're looking for bilingual employees who have a solid foundation in Heavy Equipment Mechanics. The Heavy Equipment program was funded Caterpillar, Kelly Tractor, the Immokalee Foundation, and our CCPS school district. A couple of key members of the Caterpillar and Kelly Tractor organizations have also contributed signi cantly to the program, and they've provided invaluable assistance. They found a rst-rate instructor in former corporate trainer Bob Moore. Moore knows what's required in the eld, and he does a fantastic job of preparing our students to step right into those jobs. The Immokalee Foundation was a key partner in bringing everyone together on this project, and they will provide full scholarships to IHS graduates-from last year or previous years who need tuition assistance. There are still three seats available for students who can begin on Aug. 22. iTECHContinued From Page 1 are isolated from full time residents. Residents get two meals per day Monday through Friday, since most residents are out looking for work. Three meals are provided on Saturday and Sunday. The Guadalupe provides lunches Monday through Friday. When someone needs shelter, the rst order of business is an assessment on the phone or in person. A typical case plan for a new individual is that they must put in 3-4 job applications per day, open a bank account, renew their driver's license or ID, if needed. In effect, they start life from scratch, even getting their birth certi cate. If mental health issues are involved, they are referred to the David Lawrence Center (DCL). Mr. Bianco said residents have had good luck with nding employment. A poultry company recently came through looking for w orkers who would relocate. Sudexo laundry also takes on workers. In addition, residents are encouraged to v olunteer at the facility and several are assigned to certain positions. It's important to keep people productive and give them a stake in where they live. Mr. Bianco said Friendship House complies with all federal and state immigration laws. He added that the facility has good relations and cooperation with the Collier County Sheriff's Of ce. Most of their residents are just grateful for a roof over their heads and somebody to listen to them and provide basic needs. Rarely do they cause any trouble, he said. "Most just really want to know somebody is listening and will extend a hand to help," he added. They may come in withdrawn, he said, but once they break the barrier, most are polite and helpful. Mr. Bianco himself had been in the eld for ve years, starting as a volunteer at St. Matthews House in Naples. He's been at Friendship House for two years. The facility has nine employees including Mr. Bianco and manager and case manager Bianca Salinas. Formerly working in a doctor's of ce, Ms. Salinas has been working in this eld for six years two with Immokalee Multi-Cultural Multi-Purpose Agency (IMMCA) and four at Friendship House. It is her responsibility to screen prospective residents. Ms. Salinas takes background information and asks pertinent questions. She takes calls, walk-ins, referrals from jail, prison or counselors. Anyone who is a sex offender, unstable or suicidal will not be admitted, she said. Residents undergo drug screening initially and randomly; take a breathalizer every evening for alcohol. She helps residents get into the recovery program at St. Matthews or SWFAS and helps them get to the David Lawrence Center for evaluations and medications. DCL also coordinates the PATH program, which can help residents nd employment. Ms. Salinas said the most dif cult part of her job are the referrals because doing this type of service requires building relationships with agencies and programs throughout the entire area. Her favorite part are, of course, the success stories she is a part of. She recalls one woman who had been picked up by ICE for deportation. Her daughter had leukemia and she wanted to stay here. Bianca helped with her court date, and eventually she was allowed to stay till she got treatment for her daughter. In another situation, a man learned he was HIV+ while staying at Friendship House. He was a migrant worker and had not seen his family in Mexico for 15 years. Bianca worked with Avow Hospice to set up treatment and reunited him with his family for the last month of his life. She helped him ful ll his wish. Friendship House also serves as temporary shelter for victims of many horri c disasters, such as the Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Katrina victims from New Orleans and the Tennessee oods. Some had relocated here because of family. Residents at Friendship House have access to the PLAN county medical program treatment for one year and Ms. Salinas can help those quali ed to get into disabled housing. With families in the shelter, there is so much going on, Ms. Salinas said. Kids must go to the clinic with a parent for physicals, vaccinations or treatment so they can go to school. The clinic waives its normal fee for Friendship House residents. She coordinates schedules with a school liaison for the homeless and throws parties for the little ones' birthdays and holidays. Many times the kids don't want to leave when it's time. Residents are often domestic violence victims if that shelter is full. In fact, Ms. Salinas said a few years ago most of the families served at Friendship House were victims of domestic violence. Now the economy is the biggest reason for homeless families, at least at Friendship House. Ms. Salinas also assists with burials and arranging hospice care. Resident Ashley Bennett has been in and out of St. Matthews House for over 20 years. An Army veteran, he was drafted and served in Korea in 1969. Clean cut and well spoken, Mr. Bennett will turn 65 on Labor Day. He was living on his own but a bicycle accident in Naples at the end of July put him in the hospital for ve days. When he was discharged he was transferred to Friendship House because there was no room at St. Matthews. Mr. Bennett is single, has no family and has lived with different roommates from time to time. Those accommodations have not worked out and his health problems make holding a job very dif cult. His seizures are a "frightening experience" for him and for others around him, he said, and he survives on his VA bene ts. He takes the bus to Naples for his VA treatment. He said he feels a bit out of place in Immokalee, not speaking Spanish, but reall y likes the homey feel at Friendship House. Days are quiet at Friendship House. Most of the others head to the library to search the internet for a job. He needs his bike his only transportation but is having a hard time nding it from the Naples Police Department propert y department. Friendship House is the last resort for many people, like Ashley Bennett, who would otherwise have no place to go. HOUSEContinued From Page 1

School of ces across the District are open and ready to register new students. It is very important to register new students before school starts so that the school is able to generate a schedule for the student or have them assigned to a classroom. This helps the District with the assignment of teachers for the start of school. More importantly, it makes for a smoother start to the school year for the student. Instead of being held up for the rst few hours of “day one” w aiting for a schedule, they are able to hit the ground running with the rst bell. For speci c enrollment/registration information, go to the home page of the District Web site at www.collierschools.com and click on the Back-to-School red schoolhouse icon located on the right side of the page. Be sure to check with your child’s school to see if appointments are necessary for registration. Immunization requirements, school bus schedules, as well as other pertinent backto-school information will also be found using the same home page link: http://collierschools.com/backtoschool.asp. To learn more, please call the Communications and Community Engagement Department at 239-377-0180, or send an e-mail to info@collierschools.com. Important registration reminder for parents There are still a few openings at the Immokalee Technical Center for our fall semester! One of interest is the Heavy Equipment Mechanics diesel program. This program is sponsored by Caterpillar and Kelly tractor. It is a two year program preparing students for a career in large equipment repair and maintenance. Other program openings are also available including Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Early Childhood Education and more. Interested students need to contact iTECH to apply, or just stop by. We have advisors reading to assist students in enrolling today! Financial aid is available. Call 239-377-9900. iTECH has program openings for fall semester

This week we’ll talk a little about what happens as we achieve those goals. For some goals, the only impact on our budget will be the one time cost to purchase an item, like a new dress or new suit. Or sometimes, completion of the goal actually frees up money in the future, like when we pay off a loan or a credit card debt. But for other items, there may be a new monthly payment or fee. Like with our car example from an earlier article, once you purchase a car, you may have monthly payments and expenses you’ll need to include in your budget. All of these need to be included in your budget. Or if you had a car before, they need to be adjusted to re ect your new expenses with this car. One goal we should all have is that of building an emergency fund or savings account to handle things that happen unexpectedly. This gives us something to fall back on if someone in the family suddenly gets sick and there are some extra medical bills, or if the car breaks down and needs repairs. Having an emergency fund keeps events like these from becoming crises. Experts suggest an emergency fund large enough to cover six to eight months of expenses. While this may be dif cult to do given all the day-to-day challenges that come up and the current economy, it is important to start tucking away money on a regular basis for savings. One way to avoid the temptation of tapping into that savings is to put the money in a separate account. By watching it grow in its own account, you’ll be less likely to tell yourself you’ll just use a little bit of it now and pay it back next month. One other thing regarding goals is make sure to reward yourself as you reach your goals or steps toward them. Sometimes, just buying the item we’ve been saving for is reward enough, like when we buy a new car. But other times, if the goal was to save $500 over the next year, you might want to give yourself a small reward or special treat when you reach the halfway point of $250. Breaking up the goals helps keep them manageable and the small rewards help keep us motivated. Last, remember things happen unexpectedly. Your budget is a plan or guide for how to spend money and sometimes things happen and we need to change our plan. Try not to be discouraged by these temporary setbacks. Rather, adjust your budget as needed to deal with the immediate situation and to get back on track with your nancial goals.

That message SAFETY. The transportation trainers, who also instruct bus drivers, will present the big, yellow school bus to the new riders at their school. The trainers will cover the "Tips for School Bus Riders" section found in the "Are We There Yet? Staying Safe Between Home and School" guide which will go home with the students so they can share what they've learned. The interactive session focuses on teaching the rst-time bus riders how to be safe and adhere to all the rules such as NEVER picking up anything dropped under the bus, staying away from the 12-foot "danger zone" around the bus, always making sure the driver can see you, and never walking behind the bus among others. Kindergartners will actually practice a school bus stop pickup in the school bus loop with the yellow and red lights. The topic of stranger danger will also be covered. The kindergartners are taught to communicate with their bus driver and always ask questions or talk about any concerns. To conclude the training session, each kindergartner will receive the "Are We There Yet? Staying Safe Between Home and School" guide and a "Be Cool, Follow the Rules" paper they can color that shows the proper way to depart the bus and the "no walk zone" around the bus. The transportation staff asks that parents reinforce the importance of bus safety and review the materials provided. You can also review other important information on the Transportation Department's web site located at: www.collierschools.com/ transportation/. To learn more, please contact Transportation Safety Manager, John McCloskey, at 239-377-0614, or Director, Jeff Stauring, at 239-377-0613. Kindergartners receive school bus safety training The School District of Collier County recently issued a Memorandum-Power of A ttorney-Registration and Enrollment. The Memorandum outlines the guidelines for registration and enrollment of students in the interest of students' safety and welfare as it relates to child custody. Guidelines within the memorandum include: Only a parent or legal guardian may enroll a child in school. If anyone other than a parent tries to enroll a child in school, the Student Services Department will be contacted, prior to enrollment, to determine whether the adult is a legal guardian. The district's Student Services Department will review documentation on a caseby-case basis with the district's Legal Department to establish child custody issues. The Student Services Department will inform the school staff of enrollment decisions. This is an action to ensure that students are legally protected. Therefore, it is recommended that if parents need to leave their children with older siblings or relatives temporarily, they need to make sure that children are enrolled in school prior to their leaving. To learn more, please contact the Student Services Department at 239-377-0505.

Nearly 100 youth and their sponsors from Palm Harbor United Methodist Church arrived this week in Immokalee to work on home repairs for elderly, low income clients of I HOPE. They will be redoing several bathrooms and kitchens, installing new cabinets, redoing walls and oors. Fortunately most of their wor k will be indoors-seven homes in all. Several of the adults are knowledgeable in construction and work alongside I HOPE's supervisor Dave Schubert to oversee the work that is being done. While here the group is staying at Bethel Assembly of God's Ranch, formerl y the Babcock Ranch. Special to the Immokalee Bulletin/ Rick HeersThis large group of helpful volunteers from Palm Harbor United Methodist Church is no stranger to Immokalee nor to hard work. The group plans to continue working on several homes in the area repairing kitchens, baths, cabinets and more. Volunteer group returns to Immokalee Recognition bittersweet as Florida RIF Programs deal with federal funding cutReading Is Fundamental (RIF), the nation's largest children's literacy nonpro t, named the Redlands Christian Migrant Association (RCMA), located in Immokalee, as the national Program of the Month honoree for August. At 80 locations throughout Florida, the RCMA RIF program provides 5,500 children of migrant farm workers and rural, low-income families with books and motivational literacy activities. Each site promotes the importance of family and community engagement at book distributions by encouraging local librarians, politicians, public school teachers, law enforcement of cers, re ghters and other community members to participate. The honor is bittersweet as $24.8 million in federal funding was eliminated for RIF this scal year. As a result, RIF's ability to continue providing free books to the children most at risk of academic failure is in serious jeopardy. Although this could be the last year of RIF's Books for Ownership program, Coordinator Penny Norton is optimistic that she and her team will continue to offer literacy services to the community. "RCMA is committed to continuing a literacy program for both children and parents," said Norton. "Private donors and other non-pro t agencies like the Mexican Consulate have made donations in the past and we hope to be able to depend on them in the future." "Dedicated, passionate and inspiring are all ways to describe the RCMA RIF program," said Carol H. Rasco, president and CEO of RIF. "Ms. Norton and the entire staff at RCMA bring admirable enthusiasm to the program and we are thankful for their commitment to improving literacy for children, families, and communities." RIF launched the Program of the Month initiative to honor the ongoing efforts of local programs ful lling RIF's mission, which relies on innovative programs promoting children's literacy in their communities. Thanks to thousands of volunteers, children all across the country are discovering the joy of reading. RCMA reading program nationally recognized The Collier County Public School District is reminding parents that Florida law states that children must meet current immunization requirements (have current immunization records) before they can be admitted to or attend Florida schools. Individual schools sent notices home last spring, advising parents of immunizations their children require before the start of school. Of special mention students entering seventh grade must have documentation of a Tdap booster. A new requirement for children entering kindergarten is also in effect. A fth dose of polio vaccine is needed if the fourth dose was given before the child's fourth birthday. Parents of students who received immunizations during the summer should bring their child's updated Florida Certi cate of Immunization form to the school of ce BEFORE school begins on Aug. 22. Those who still need to receive immunizations should contact their private physicians as soon as possible to ensure that the child will be in compliance with state and local requirements. The Collier County Health Department provides school-age immunizations free of charge, on a walk-in basis at their locations in Naples/Main Clinic (239252-8395, 239-252-2564, 239-252-2684), and Immokalee (239-252-7300). Both locations are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students who do not have all required immunizations will not be permitted to attend school. Immunization requirements for the 2011-12 school year can be found on the school district's web site at. Just click on the Back-to-School red schoolhouse icon located on the right side of the page. The requirements can be found by clicking on the No Shots! No School! link. They are posted in English, Spanish, and Creole. The important immunization notice for students entering seventh grade can also be found there.

IWSD announces temporary change of drinking water disinfection treatmentIWSD will be temporarily changing the disinfection process for the IWSD potable (drinking water) water supply. Until Aug. 15, IWSD will disinfect the water with free chlorine rather than combined chlorine/ammonia (chloramines). This conversion to chlorine (which is a stronger disinfectant) from chloramines (which is a longer-lasting disinfectant) allows IWSD to perform a water distribution system purge as recommend by the Department of Environmental Protection for water utilities using chloramines as their primary disinfectant. This change began on Aug. 1st and IWSD will then return to the chloramines disinfection process on August 15, at 8 a.m. This temporary change in disinfectant does not cause adverse health effects. However, during the period customers may experience a slight increase in the taste, odor and color of the water due to the change in treatment. Customers on kidney dialysis who use a proportioning machine to prepare dialysate at home are advised to contact their equipment supplier or physician take any appropriate steps to accommodate the change in water disinfection and to install the proper ltering devices if needed. Customers are asked to call IWSD at 239658-3630 with any questions concerning this change in disinfectants. Public Notices

One of the management challenges is dealing with large masses of unsolicited-and often unneeded-goods that arrive from well-meaning, but ill-informed organizations outside the area. Very close to that is handling large numbers of unaf liated spontaneous volunteers that often descend on a declared disaster area. Members present that included the Collier of ce of Emergency Management Serv ices, the American Red Cross, the Salvation A rmy, Lutheran Services, the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance program, UMCOR, the United Way, I HOPE excitedly applauded the comment that soon there would be an area COAD/FVOAD. COAD stands for Community Organizations Active in Disaster, while FVOAD represents Florida Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. Kevin Smith, CEM, Emergency Disaster Services Director presented the valuable workshop. While he heads up the Emergency Disaster Services for the Salvation Army, he also has been elected to chair the FVOAD. His vice chair, Kathy Broyard who also serves as the statewide coordinator for the Florida Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Network also was in attendance at the meeting. Critical in the disaster response and recovery effort are local businesses, faithbased organizations-e.g. churches, and synagogues, local service agencies-e.g. Catholic Services, Guadalupe, community foundations, Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, Elks, Moose Clubs. Issues dealing with the national donations strategy, the donations management process, and ways to incorporate the many local, state and national volunteer organizations were discussed. Thanks to training sessions such as this one, Florida is leading the way in being prepared to handle future natural and/or man-made disasters.
