Immokalee, FL: The Collier County Housing Authority’s (CCHA) Jump Start Family Literacy Academy of Immokalee (FLAI) has been awarded a one-year $5,000 grant for the implementation of a health literacy program to bene t its Adult ESOL and family literacy students. This grant, awarded by Florida Blue and the Florida Literacy Coalition, will integrate health and nutrition into the adult ESOL curriculum offered to residents of Farm Worker Village and at Collier Village. The focus is to help students acquire information and resources that will help them navigate the medical system and make informed health decisions. There is a growing recognition among health care providers and adult educators around the country that limited English language and literacy skills can have a signi cant impact on one’s health. Health Literacy is de ned as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. According to the 2003 National Assessment of Adult Literacy’s (NAAL) report on the health literacy of America’s adults, 14% of adults have below basic health literacy skills. Low health literacy is especially prevalent among adults Serving Immokalee, Ave Maria and Eastern Collier County Thursday, June 5, 2014 Vol. 47 No. 23 See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads See Page 2 for information about how to contact the newspaper.newszap.comFree SpeechFree Ads County seeks high value employment Governor Rick Scott has signed into law a State budget appropriations bill that included $2.5 million in state funds to help develop a Soft-Landing Business Accelerator project in Collier County.

Employment Continued From Page 1 HealthContinued From Page 1 by Maribel De ArmasSchool is out and summer is of cially underway as of yesterday! On Wednesday, the last day of school, smiling children said their “see ya laters” to friends and teachers, cleaned out their desks or lockers and left school excited about what summer might bring. For some, summer may include a family trip, summer camps or helping mom and dad around the house. Our high school teens may have summer jobs or may be taking summer classes. Whatever the plans are, learning shouldn’t have to stop just because the school bell isn’t ringing. Research tells us that on average a child may lose between 18 to 22 percent of knowledge during summer break, and this increases to a possible 30 percent loss for an English Language Learner. Keeping up with learning during the summer is critical to curb this loss of knowledge. So Mom and Dad, we need your help. Along with the fun and relaxation summer brings, we encourage you to stay actively involved with your child using our new Keep Learning Alive resource found on our school district website (www.collierschools.com). On the website’s home page, just click on the Summer Information 2014 image (it’s got the ip ops on it). You’ll then have access to the Keep Learning Alive e-book, plus other important information you may nd useful during the summer such as summer food programs, enrollment information, summer school details, and more! In the Keep Learning Alive learning and resource guide, you’ll nd English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies activities organized by grade. You’ll also nd great recommendations for ageappropriate books your child may enjoy during the summer. I guarantee you’ll nd plenty of information and activities to keep your child’s brain active this summer, and in turn, reduce idle boredom. Honestly, it’s as simple as engaging children in the things you and I as adults do every day as second nature – from writing checks to making grocery lists to cooking dinner – not only will it keep them active, but will add knowledge to their developing brains. And certainly, physical activity is also important. Take your kids to a neighborhood park or take a family bike ride – take in our beautiful Florida summer weather – of course, in between our usual 2 p.m. rain storms! Whatever your plans are for the summer, make sure you take time to enjoy having your children home from school.

Myers for additional groceries provided to clients. The next ministry will be lunch Saturday, June 14, at noon. These meals are absolutely free. The National Park Service (NPS) has selected alternative 3 of the Hunting Management Plan Environmental Assessment for implementation. Under the selected alternative, the NPS and the Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in consultation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), will cooperate to implement an adaptive management strategy to manage hunting in the Preserve. Based on the environmental analysis as documented in the management plan and w ith the due consideration for the nature of public comments, the NPS has determined that the selected alternative, is not a major federal action signi cantly affecting the quality of the human environment. Based on the foregoing information, the NPS has determined that an environmental impact statement is not required for this project and thus will not be prepared, and a Finding of No Signi cant Impact (FONSI) w as signed on May, 16 2014 by the NPS. "The implementation of this alternative ensures the continuation of a Congressionally mandated recreational activity within the national preserve while providing for the protection of these special resources at the same time." stated Pedro Ramos, Superintendent, "The adaptive management aspect of the plan allows the responsible agencies to work cooperatively and adjust management as needed based on resource conditions." Next steps in the process of implementing the plan will be to work with the FWC, in consultation with USFWS, to include the Addition Lands areas of the national preserve into the FWC's Big Cypress Wildlife Management Area (WMA). This process will include the establishment of regulations and seasons that will be developed and de ned for all management units within the WMA.
