Workers red up its rst test engine at the Immokalee facility on August 1. With enough electronic gadgetry to rival a jet cockpit, the control room was packed with people to witness that rst test. Owner Tom Stout deferred to Collier County District 5 Commissioner Jim Coletta to push the button that cranked up the huge engine. A bullet proof window allows the controller a view of the engine as the monitoring process goes on and cameras are used to verify everything that happens. Anyone on site, even inside the control room, dons protective hearing gear while the engine roars. The engine being tested that day is capable of providing power for 7,000 homes and uses 2,500 gallons of fuel. These goliaths put out an average of 17,000 pounds of thrust and 30 megawatts of power. The computers in the control room log information of the actual test for the client to analyze to make sure it operates within the required parameters of their speci cations. The company has 20 employees in total; four or ve may be at the Immokalee facility as needed. They build and test some 24 turbo engines per year. These huge engines are used by facilities like power companies throughout the world. TURBOContinued From Page 1 w ith no roads. The existing water source for the whole village is a 1" standpipe, which only provides water two days a week. The homes the people live in are roughly 4'x8' and are located on former banana plantations. Each home is owned by a member of the same family. By law, they cannot sell the land unless they have consensus between all of the family members, which limits their ability to raise money for the necessary improvements. Steve Schlueter said that St. Lucia has three Rotary Clubs that our District can partner with. DG Schlueter's presentation also highlighted reading programs and a water safety program geared towards presentations at local schools. He also presented the Theme for this year's District Conference Having Fun Helping Others. This year's conference will focus on the activities and fellowship events that each club has held throughout the year. DG Steve Schlueter encouraged our club to take photos at each of our events and send copies to him so they can be made part of the presentation for the District Conference.

3 Immokalee Bulletin A ugust 9, 2012 Master Plan fair to allIn the State of Florida communities are required to plan ahead for future growth. W here would be the best places to put new homes? Where should we put new schools, new parks, new shopping centers, new industry? Where are the special places that are best left in their natural state? For the past ten years the people of Immokalee have been making these choices in meetings, for something called the Immokalee Master Plan. Now, after everyone had agreed, a small group of property owners wants us to start all over again, to change some of the rules, in some cases, to their own advantage. I personally have voted to keep the Immokalee Master Plan is it is. I think it is fair to everybody and can be a basis for our towns future growth. I have also voted to re-elect Jim Coletta. He has shown over the years that he is a friend of our town.Paul MidneyBeware America!The recent shooting, killing and injuring of scores of people at a movie theater in A urora, Colorado has gripped the hearts of every American and has caused a lingering sadness in our hearts-such a horrid situation for individuals and families to deal with for y ears to come. Outpourings of thoughtful expressions of comfort and grief have come from every sector of our wonderful country at the senseless murder of so many innocent lives. And yet, earlier this summer I was stricken with a similar sickening feeling of sadness, grief and anger over recent revelations that many equally innocent lives are being snuffed out because some individuals prefer to give birth to a child of a different sex. It is a slippery slope of moral decay that our country is going down when an organization can condone the killing of a life within the womb because of parental preference, also called conveniently choice, and then to make matters worse, many government of cials are unwilling to call this what it is, infanticide. Experts tell us that the heart of an unborn child begins beating somewhere between three to ve weeks, and yet some still insist that it is not a person. It wasnt that long ago that our country cried out in opposition to the senseless killing of millions of pre-born babies in China when the preferred sex of the child was unwanted. My warning to our beloved country is not a false alarm, but a real one based on history. This summer I just nished a long, but powerful autobiography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas, the keynote speaker at this years Presidential Prayer Breakfast, attended by President Obama and many of our national legislators. Bonhoeffer took a valiant stand against the horrors of the Holocaust that cost him his life, as he opposed the senseless slaughter of at least six million lives because of the choice of Adolf Hitler and his complicit supporters, many of whom knew it was wrong, but followed orders regardless. In America we have witnessed the wholesale slaughter of over 55 million precious human beings. In his last book he wrote, Ethics, Bonhoeffer said, Destruction of the embryo in the mothers womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. The slippery slope may very well lead our country to determining that certain individuals, because of abnormalities or old age may also be expendable for the common good. All true, Americans must evaluate the direction our government is going before it is too late. Without going into details, my mother who passed away a few years ago, was conceived out of wedlock, born and adopted in the early 1900s, but very likely would have been killed had Roe versus Wade been in effect in her time of being in the womb. Ive often thought, where would I be, my six brothers and sisters, our many children and even more grandchildren if, for convenience, choice or whatever word is used, my mother had been aborted. Am I ashamed of my past? Absolutely not! I am proud that individuals made the choice to allow me and the generations of productive Americans who have been born from Audrey to live and impact our society for good. I would only plead that we look very seriously at where our country is headed. All human life must be valued. History need not repeat itself, unless we allow it to do so. Richard L.

Formerly known as Vocational and Career Success, the program focuses on career empowerment and post-secondary readiness for students through experiences that stress leadership, skills development and community service. TIF board member Dick Stonesifer has been a staunch supporter of the program since its inception. In Immokalee, 70 percent of high school graduates do not go on to college, he said. We recognize that college is not for everyone, so we want to provide alternative career options and help prepare students for the workforce. Through Career Development, students participate in career panels, job shadowing/ internships, resume writing, interview training, networking, summer camps and more. The career panels feature informative speakers in the elds of technology, law, media, human services, health care, manufacturing and others. The speakers often share personal stories about their educational backgrounds and the struggles they encounter in achieving their goals. Summer internships with area businesses provide students with real-world experience in particular career elds and help them develop professional skills and knowledge. Local companies, such as Naples Community Hospital and Arthrex, have hosted tours, giving students a rsthand look at the workplace in action. These partnerships with area rms are essential to the success of the Career Development program; therefore, TIF is actively seeking local companies interested in becoming partners. Companies must be willing to provide speakers and consider TIF students for internships and employment. We want our students to know what these companies do, what careers are available and even what kind of income can be expected, said Skip Hildebrand, TIF board member and chairman of the Career Development Committee. We want to prepare these students so that when they graduate from high school, they arent lost. To partner with TIF, learn about sponsorship opportunities or volunteer as a career panel speaker, call 239-430-9122. The Immokalee Foundation has a range of programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and career development, direct scholarships, mentoring and tutoring, and opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development.

Florida Dept. of Education offers these statewide School Bus Safety Tips for students and motorists to follow: Motorists: Please exercise patience and caution, especially around children and school buses. Follow these safety practices: When approaching a school bus that is stopped with its red lights ashing and its stop arms extended, motorists are required to STOP in nearly every instance. For more information on Florida's school bus stop law and penalties, go to www.FloridaSchoolBusSafety.gov. Be alert and watch for children at all times, but especially near schools, bus stops, school buses, and in school parking lots. Obey all traf c laws and speed limits, paying extra attention to the lower speed limits in school zones. Do not pass other vehicles in school zones or at crosswalks. Do not change lanes or make U-turns in school zones. Watch for and obey signals from school crossing guards. Do not text or use a cell phone while driving. Only drive or park in authorized areas to drop off or pick up children at school. Parents and Students: Please discuss these safety tips together and be sure to follow them: Discuss and practice the safest way to get to and from school or the assigned school bus stop. Never run out into the street or cross between parked cars. At the School Bus Stop: Arrive at the bus stop about ve minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. Follow instructions from your bus driver or the school district about where to wait at your assigned bus stop. Wait in a safe place away from the road. Do not run and play while waiting for the bus to arrive. Never sit on the roadway while waiting for your bus. Never speak to strangers at the bus stop and never get into the car with a stranger. Always tell your parents, the bus driver, or another responsible adult as soon as possible if a stranger tries to talk to you or pick you up. Loading or Unloading from the Bus: As the bus is approaching, watch for the red ashing lights and the stop arms to extend. When the bus stops, wait for the driver's signal that it is safe to cross the road or board the bus. If crossing the street, look left, right, and left again. When the driver signals that it is safe, walk at least 12 feet in front of the bus where the driver can see you. Never walk behind the school bus. Never run after the bus. Hold the handrail while going up and down the stairs. Go directly to your bus seat and remain seated during the entire ride. Exit the bus only at your assigned bus stop. If you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver. Never try to pick it up rst, because the driver may not be able to see you. Parents or guardians of small children should wait with them in the morning and meet them at the bus stop in the afternoon. Riding in the School Bus: Keep hands, arms, and head inside bus. Always buckle up properly if your school bus has safety belts. Stay in your seat and obey the driver. Remain seated at all times and keep the aisle clear. Stop talking and remain silent when the bus comes to a railroad crossing so the driver can hear if a train is approaching. Avoid any loud or disruptive behavior that could distract the bus driver from safely operating the bus. Be courteous and respectful to your driver. Safely getting you to and from school is a tremendous responsibility that the driver takes very seriously.

Alligators are a species whose relative w ell-being in a given environment is indicative of the health of its ecosystem, and scientists say the study may have broader implications for ovarian function and obesity in other animals. The ndings appeared in May in the journal Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology. Previous research demonstrated that repeated contact with chemical runoff from spills in Lake Apopka, near Orlando, caused male alligators to develop shorter than normal sexual organs and the loss of normal patterns of sex differences in hormone levels and gonad function. Now, scientists show that environmental exposure to hormonally active toxins such as PCBs and DDT and its breakdown products are also affecting normal genetic functioning in female alligator ovaries. The results: contaminant-exposed female hatchlings are born smaller and shorter, but gain w eight at a faster rate during post-hatching development than alligators exposed to fewer toxins. In this study, the researchers found an association between altered ovary function and changes in body growth rates. Many human reproductive illness syndromes that affect female fertility, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, have symptoms that include altered ovarian gene functioning, a lack of normal ovulation and metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. "The ovaries of the hatchling alligators at rst seem to function normally, but when you hormonally stimulate them, that's when gene expression abnormalities start to appear," said Louisiana Tech University professor Brandon C. Moore, who led the study, which was based on his graduate research at UF in the laboratory of reproductive biologist Louis Guillette. To investigate dysfunction in reproduction, Moore and his colleagues collected alligator eggs from Lake Apopka which has been examined for three decades by scientists surveying the effects of industrial pesticides and sewage pollution. Eggs were incubated and hatched under laboratory conditions. They injected the young alligators with Follicle Stimulating Hormone, or FSH, which regulates reproductive processes in many species, including alligators and humans. "When you give an animal FSH, it's like revving the gas pedal," Moore said. However, there was no "revving" for pivotal ovarian genes of pollution-exposed alligators when injected with FSH in Moore's experiments. In addition, the researchers explored the parallels between the lack of FSH responsiveness and potentially environment-induced human reproductive diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, a disorder where levels of the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone become imbalanced. "Even though we're studying alligators, what makes endocrinology so powerful is that the chemical structure of most of the steroid and thyroid hormones are identical among vertebrates, from sh to people," said Ashley Boggs, a postdoctoral researcher at the Medical University of South Carolin a who also studies alligators near Cape Canaveral. "It's not just about your genes but also about what you've been exposed to throughout your whole life, from embryonic development to puberty to pregnancy." Boggs suggested long-term epidemiological studies would need to be conducted to determine whether human reproduction and development may also be in uenced b y the same contaminants affecting Florida alligators. Such a study would require taking blood samples from expectant mothers and screen for similar chemicals. However, because thousands of chemicals such as BPA and phthalates are used and easily found in the environment, Boggs said it is an enormous task to separate which toxins are in uencing speci c biological functions. This study at Lake Apopka is an important step to answering that challenge, she said. Lake contaminants affect alligator weight, study shows Immokalee Bulletin/ D. HamiltonContaminants commonly found in area lakes including chemical runoff can be detrimental to the health of Floridas alligator population.

By Pat DobbinsSpecial to the Immokalee Bulletin Its summertime! Baseball games, swimming, camping, hiking, or just playing outdoors These are all great summer activities, but dont forget about ticks that may be in the same environment. There are several things you can do to help prevent tick bites and reduce your risk of tick-borne disease. After being in wooded areas, grassy areas, or even after a summer picnic, you should check your scalp and hair, behind the ears, the neck and under the arms. Usually ticks try to nd a nice warm spot to hide and latch onto to your skin, but sometimes they can choose the strangest places, so please check your whole body thoroughly. Some ticks are small enough to crawl into shoes or through socks, so when you are hiking, or taking a stroll through wooded areas, tuck your pant legs into your socks so that they cannot crawl up the inside of your pants. Also, its a good idea to wear light-colored clothing, because it will help you spot any ticks that may be crawling around looking for a place to bite! For added protection, you can also use an insect repellent with DEET, but please always follow the product instructions! Repellents containing 20% or more DEET can be applied to the skin, and can provide some protection for several hours. Please talk to your healthcare provider before applying any insect repellents on young children. Before you go into your home, chec k your clothing and your pets for ticks. Ticks may be carried into the house on clothing and pets and any ticks that are found should be removed immediately. Watch for signs o f illness such as rash or fever, and see a health care provider if these develop. Remember that it can take up to 30 days before you have symptoms of a tick related disease. Your risk of getting a tick-borne illness depends on many factors, including where you live, what type of tick bit you, and how long the tick was attached. If you become ill after a tick bite, please see your health care provider. You can get more information about ticks at this website: http://www.cdc.gov/ticks/ Ticks they could be in your own back yard!

According to the 2011 Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, 9.6 percent of middle school and 28 percent of high school students had reported smoking cigars at least once, statistically showing an increase from the 5.1 percent of middle school and 14.5 percent of high school youth that reported in 2010. Comparatively, the 2010 Florida Youth Tobacco Survey determined that in Collier County, 3.9 percent of middle school and 15.1 percent of high school students reported smoking cigars on one or more times during the past 30 days increasing slightly from the 2.6 percent of middle school and 14.6 percent of high school youth that reported cigar usage in 2008. In 2009, President Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control act which restricted the sale of avored cigarettes. Despite this restriction, many other avored tobacco products remain on the market including cigars and little cigars known as cigarillos. With 90 percent of adult smokers beginning before the age of 18, studies have shown avored tobacco products such as cherry, sour apple, peach and watermelon are marketed and produced as a way to entice youth and young adults into a lifetime of addiction. Flavored products, also known as starter products, are meant to hide the harsh taste of tobacco for novice users. Some youth believe the misconception that avored products are safer than nonavored products. Regular cigar use is associated with an increased risk for cancers of the lung and esophagus, as well as linked to tooth loss and gum disease. The mission of the Tobacco-Free Collier Partnership is to make tobacco less desirable, acceptable, and accessible. We as k that citizens, especially parents, remember that all avored tobacco, including cigars and cigarillos, are a growing trend amongst youth. Educate your children on the dangers of avored tobacco products. Youth cigar smoking shows increase in use By Pat DobbinsSpecial to the Immokalee Bulletin With only a few weeks left of summer break, parents are probably thinking about getting their child ready to go back to school. Along with school clothes and school supplies, parents should make sure preventative health measures are included on their childs back-to-school checklist. Success in school starts with keeping students healthy and safe. Parents should take their children to a healthcare provider for an annual well-child check-up and to make sure all vaccinations and medical records are in order. Healthy eating, adequate physical activity and good sleep patterns are also instrumental to success in school. Parents should talk with their children about traveling safely to and from school. This includes planning safe routes for walking or riding a bike, reminding them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing the street only at designated crosswalks, and showing them how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if they are riding a bike to school. If your child is old enough to start driving a car to school, please remind them of some of the basic rules of the road. Dont be afraid to talk to your teen about safe driving. Allo w them to take Drivers Education if its offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle insurance company about programs available to teach teens about safe driving tips. Children in Florida should never have to be without health care. Insurance can improve a childs access to medications and treatment they may need to control childhood illnesses and decrease absences from school. The state of Florida offers KidCare, a health insurance program for children from birth through age 18. Children can be eligible even if one or both parents are working. Children covered by Florida KidCare are eligible for comprehensive health care, including sports physicals, doctor visits, check-ups, immunizations, surgery, prescriptions, vision and hearing screenings, mental health care, dental check-ups and hospital stays. Students with access to these and other preventative health care services are likely to be healthier and perform better in school. For more information about KidCare, visit www.
