Summer School Program at Pinecrest and Village Oaks Elementary Schools. From early in the morning until late afternoon, they were involved in learning about the children living in different countries around the world, with a curriculum which took them to the seven continents. With books like All Kinds of Children, written by Norma Simon, they came to realize that although children may dress differently, eat different food, or live in houses that look different, they do many of the same things each day like attending school, helping with jobs at home, and playing favorite games. Village Oaks Elementary students had the opportunity to sample Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Indian dishes on one of their "cultural days." They also created decorations and cultural artifacts in their classrooms to resemble one of the continents, as an end of summer project. Summer is often the time when children can slip further behind in their academic work if they don't practice what they've learned from the previous school year. The S.T.A.R. students were helped with their reading skills by a retired reading specialist who volunteered in the program again this summer. The children were taught basic reading comprehension strategies and encouraged to use these strategies to help them understand the books they read. Each strategy was linked with a read aloud book to reinforce and practice the reading skill. Trevor's Wiggly Wobbly Tooth by Lester Laminack will be remembered for the many kinds of "connections" all of the children Summer Fun for S.T.A.R.

NAPLES -— The CarMax Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 grant to the Guadalupe Center’s Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program. Funding from this grant will be used to support and enhance this program through the purchase of educational supplies. The Guadalupe Center’s ECE program is nationally accredited, and in order to meet that high standard, a variety of targeted educational activities and supplies are needed. These items are critical to the program’s success and the success of its students. The ECE program purchases and replenishes supplies throughout the year as items are constantly evaluated for wear and tear and age appropriateness. Some of the educational supplies slated to be purchased for the ECE program include manipulatives for ne and gross motor development, books, blocks, creative play equipment, and educational software for computers. The CarMax Foundation was established in 2003 to support the communities where CarMax associates live and work. To date, The CarMax Foundation has granted over $20 million across the country. The Guadalupe Center is a non-pro t educational organization focused on helping impoverished families in Immokalee. The mission of the Guadalupe Center is to “break the cycle of poverty by providing educational, social, and other support programs and resources.” Programs begin at six weeks of age and continuing through college graduation. The Women’s Foundation was created in 1999 to address a potential maternity care crisis in Collier County. Thanks to a partnership agreement between members of the OB/GYN community the Collier County Health Department and Naples Community Hospital, the Foundation provided prenatal, delivery and postpartum care to women in nancial need. Services were paid through Medicaid, Healthy Start or other funding sources. More recently, the Foundation’s nancial circumstances led to discussions of turning operations over to the HCN. “We have been impressed with the Foundation’s work and dedication to their patients and community,” said Healthcare Network CEO Mike Ellis. “When discussions arose regarding us taking over operations, w e couldn’t have found a more perfect t w ith our mission of providing quality healthcare accessible to everyone.” In addition, HCN welcomes ve new care providers including Dr.Thomas Beckett, Dr. Chris Grevengood, Dr. Dean Hildahl, Dr. Max Kamerman, Dr. Wallace McLean, Sarah Clay, ARNP; and Jessica Loerop, PA-C. Last year, the Women’s Foundation cared for 1,100 women, providing more than 8,000 prenatal visits and nearly 1,200 deliveries. According to Thomas VanPelt, former Women’s Health Foundation Executive Director, now HCN Director of Administrative Operations, the move will enhance patient services with additional staf ng and the ability to utilize electronic health records as well as other modern administrative technology.

A new National Park Service report shows that over two and a half million visitors to the national parks in South Florida, spent $206 million last year in surrounding communities. That spending supported over 2,700 jobs in South Florida. The report shows numbers speci c to Big Cypress National Preserve included a total of 1,007,789 v isitors that spent an estimated $75,954,700 in South Florida communities and created approximately 997 jobs. “This report shows that park areas are an important part of our lives in the South Florida. They provide open space for people to enjoy and help to build a strong economy.” said Superintendent Pedro Ramos. The new report shows that national parks are signi cant drivers in the economy, returning ten dollars for every one that is invested in the National Park Service. Parks are the primary economic engines of many gateway communities. Visitors come to the parks from all over the world to experience the amazing scenery, natural resources, history and wildlife that the parks provide. Nearby communities provide visitors with services that support thousands of mostly local jobs. Additional jobs are provided by building, educational and natural resource related projects that take place in parks and utilize local companies. “South Florida’s national park areas improve the quality of life for everyone in South Florida by creating jobs, protecting the environment and providing opportunities for people to get outdoors and enjoy nature,” said Don Finefrock, Executive Director of the South Florida National Parks Trust, a nonpro t partner that supports all four parks through fundraising and community outreach. According to the national economic analysis, most visitor spending was for lodging, followed by food and beverages, fuel, admissions, souvenirs and other expenses. The largest job categories supported by visitor spending were for restaurants and lodging. The report shows nearly $15 billion of direct spending by 274 million visitors in communities within 60 miles of a national park. This spending supported more than 237,000 jobs nationally, with most of them found in gateway communities. The spending had a cumulative bene t to the national economy of nearly $27 billion. Combined 2013 report gures include those for Biscayne, Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks, and Big Cypress National Preserve. The total for the four parks is up slightly from the previous year. This is while visitor spending was down by 1 percent nationally.
