by Patty Brant Immokalee Bulletin Immokalee takes its sports seriously. Yoshi Smith is a perfect example of just how important sports is to young people in this town. A standout at Immokalee High School, recently had his jersey retired after seven years playing arena football for the Tarpons. Yoshi couldn’t recover 100 percent from an accident on SR 82 in February 2012, putting a premature end to his football playing days, but it hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for hard physical training and conditioning. It also got him thinking, focusing on another important factor in Immokalee leadership. When his jersey was retired a few weeks ago at an event at Florida Gulf Coast University, Yoshi presented a speech on leadership to I.H.S. 9-10 graders. At 34, Yoshi is the rst Immokaleean to be enshrined in the Arena Football Hall of Fame in Fort Myers. “I feel blessed,” he said, “there are a lot of special athletes from Immokalee with the talent to go somewhere.” Leadership is what Yoshi sees as his new calling. He wants to be a beacon for kids, helping them nd their way to success. Yoshi is forever proud or and grateful for his arena football experience for the travel, for the opportunity to meet good people. “It was cool,” he says with a big smile. It brought him great friends like former player Joe Ross and has him thinking about coaching semi-pro one day. Yoshi loves to work out and play ball, still using the skills he honed as a full back, line backer and defensive end. He graduated from Immokalee High School in 1999, where he played football, basketball and baseball. Then it was off to Elsworth Community College in Iowa. He remembers it as an “awesome experience” of football and education. But he opted to leave after just 1.5 years. He was needed at home to help with his younger brother George, who had been paralyzed in an Indians football game several years earlier. His mother was in a bad position, trying to hold everything together and Yoshi knew where he needed to be. Now George has graduated from iTECH and is focusing on his own career in spite of his wheelchair, putting all his energy into building his own recording studio the rst in Immokalee. Certi ed by the National Federation of Professional Training, Yoshi is also building his own dream a personal membership gym. Both facilities are being built at their home, permits and zoning requirements already taken care of, Yoshi said. He is planning a clean, professional membership gym with 45-minute sessions by appointment only. He’s also taking up boxing now. You will still see him at the Sports Complex, though, since he will concentrate his gym sessions later in the day. He will also be focusing on his business helping clients lose or gain weight through a Visalis Body by Bob Project which allows him to provide protein shakes with nutrients for kids in need.

(June 26, 2014) – The Immokalee Foundation recently hosted an after-school tennis program at Pelican Marsh as part of its mission to inspire the underserved youth of Immokalee through education. The afternoon of tennis instruction was led by Jim Holt Sr., who also serves as assistant coach of the Gwynedd-Mercy College women’s tennis team in Gwynedd Valley, Penn., and other members of the Center Court Athletics, a volunteer group of players from the Pelican Marsh Tennis Club. In addition to providing tennis lessons to TIF youth, Center Court Athletics also works to secure donations of rackets, balls and miscellaneous equipment to be used in the program. Sixteen students from RCMA Charter School and four from Immokalee Middle School learned the basics of the game and practiced their skills with short games and drills as they rotated among three sets of volunteer instructors. They had the opportunity of hitting balls at targets; volleyed back and forth; and tested their ability to hit the ball in different sections of the court. Holt, who co-founded the program, said he hopes learning the game will enrich the students’ lives as it has his own, “I enjoy helping with my favorite sport, and I hope they’ll bene t from it like I did, playing tennis all over the world. Maybe later on, they’ll be playing at Florida Gulf Coast University or even Wimbledon.” After the instruction portion of the afternoon, the students had the opportunity to watch their four coaches play a round of doubles from a courtside vantage point. Thanks to the Holts and the Center Court Athletics volunteers, the Submitted photoJohann Saurbier helps students of The Immokalee Foundation with the basic and ner points of tennis.

Masthead photo courtesy of Waddy Thompson Serving Immokalee, Ave Maria and Eastern Collier County He has a special love for working with middle and high school kids and may some day decide to coach high school football sports. He notes that he has already assisted in training all the I.H.S football players who have gone off to college in the past eight years. As an independent promoter, Yoshi hopes to build leaders by teaching kids to be active for at least 60 minutes per day. Yoshi readily admits that his biggest support comes from God, his family and his job. Looking back on his early days, Yoshi said he didn’t go all way to the NFL because he was not focused. To make it to the pros, you have to have the passion and be able to focus. When he was in college, his main focus was on home his mind and heart were not in football. Still, he says he never thought he’d be in this position. He grew up poor. He wanted to stay out of trouble and sports was the way for him to do that. It’s still important for him to be a role model for kids. Money, he said, is not important. In fact, it’s a stresser. And Yoshi is very happy with his life. “I like what God has put on my plate,” he said with a smile. And he’s all about sharing it. He said he’d love to be able to build a Boys and Girls Club; apartments for low income families and for single parents; to help people get a job. Yoshi’s role models are his mother, who “held down the fort for the family in such dif cult circumstances and was always there with unconditional love. Next, his brother George. Watching his younger brother go through his physical and emotional traumas inspire him to be a better brother, father and man for the community. “I saw George go down (Yoshi was a senior at the time, George a junior). He’s the reason I wanted to come home and be a leader . I did not want to let him down. I wanted to make positive out of a negative to use it for motivation. George will motivate me till I die. He’s a symbol. You can knock him down but you can’t keep him down.” He wants Immokalee’s kids to see that to keep praying and believing,” Retired from arena football, Yoshi is focusing on God and family including his kids ages 14, 8, 1), but he knows no one can take his past away. “I earned it,” This is just the beginning for Yoshi and he’s ready to lead, He wants to see Immokalee grow. Some day he’d like to travel the world as a tness trainer over world, seeing the sights and meeting people. Yoshi has lots plans. He’s kicking off his own clothing brand, with a Yoshi Smith Training Fitness logo. He’s got demo shirts from a Miami company and Immokalee’s Donna Izaguirre’s DKY Design doing production. “I paid my dues,” Yoshi said, but he’s not ready to quit. He’s ready to use his experience, his skills and his heart for Immokalee’s kids to move forward. TIF program continues to inspire and provide Immokalee youth by providing opportunities to build physical and social skills that help its participants grow, learn and advance to educational and professional heights that otherwise may not have been possible. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence.

Give Obamacare a ChanceThe New England Journal of Medicine’s Journal Watch, dated July 1st 2014, stated that “Healthcare reform in Massachusetts was associated with a drop in mortality.” In 2006, the state of Massachusetts expanded Medicaid and provided subsidies for private insurance. As a result, 270,000 adults gained insurance coverage. After 2006, all causes of mortality in Massachusetts decreased by 2.9%. The Supreme Court recently allowed the states to deny Medicaid coverage to the unemployed and those making less than $15,000.00 a year. This allowed political opponents to gut an essential part of Obamacare. This is what’s happening in the state of Florida, where Republicans are denying medical coverage to over one million adults. It is costly to provide minimal Medicaid coverage to over a million people, but is far more costly not to do so. The uninsured miss more work due to illness, die sooner and often leave taxpayers to care for their families when they are gone Also, the poor utilizes the Emergency Room more often for medical care, resulting in higher medical insurance rates for others. Using the Emergence Room also creates large debt that is economically crippling for years. We are shocked when we hear about death squads killing thousands in a third world country, but when thousands are allowed to die in this country, due to lack o f preventive medical care, we are oblivious to the deafness caused by political ideology.

Here are some prevention tips: Drink more uids (nonalcoholic), regardless of your activity level. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. Warning: If y our healthcare provider generally limits the amount of uid you drink or has you on w ater pills, ask them how much you should drink while the weather is hot. Don’t drink liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar–these actually cause you to lose more body uid. Also, avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps. Stay indoors and, if at all possible, stay in an air-conditioned place. If your home does not have air conditioning, go to the grocery store or public library–even a few hours spent in air conditioning can help your body stay cooler when you go back into the heat. Electric fans may provide comfort, but w hen the temperature is in the high 90s, fans w ill not prevent heat-related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath, or moving to an airconditioned place is a much better way to cool off. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loosetting clothing. NEVER leave anyone (or a pet) in a closed, parked vehicle. Although any one at any time can suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others. Check regularly on: o Infants and young children o People aged 65 or older o People who have a mental illness o Those who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure Visit “at-risk adults at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching. If you must be out in the heat: Limit your outdoor activity to morning and evening hours. Cut down on exercise in the hottest parts of the day. When you exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, nonalcoholic uids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat. Warning: If you are on a low-salt diet, talk with your healthcare provider before drinking a sports beverage. Try to rest often in shady areas. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also keeps you cooler) and sunglasses and by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher (the most effective products say “broad spectrum” or “UVA/UVB protection” on their labels).
