for coffee and the local gossip.
The victim's brother, Larry
Woosley, has acted as spokesper-
son for the family. He said the fam-
ily.is glad that Henderson has been
caught and is off the street. "It
makes it easier," he said, adding
that he could not speak for the
entire family on this point, but for
himself, he wants his brother's
killer punished to the fullest. Larry
said the public response to the
tragedy has been overwhelming -
"the sympathy, support, love and
prayers have been overwhelming-


lywonderful."
He added that the family
knows that Danny tried to help
Henderson. Their only comfort, he
said, is "knowing Danny was truly
a Christian. There is no doubt in
our minds he's in heaven."
"It's a nightmare, just working
through it," he said, adding that
the family will continue to get
through this terrible time because
it is a "strong, close, loving family"
and they "keep each other going,"

The LHS staff goes to USMC


The Marine Recruiter from
this area, Staff Sgt., Day, invited
educators from LHS to attend
their annual Educator's Work-
shop located at the Marines' train-
ing facility on Parris Island, South
Carolina. About 80 educators
came from the 6th district that
includes the Orlando area south
to Fort Lauderdale.
This was an opportunity for
educators to see the process that
a person would go through when
they joined the United States
Marine Corps. It was a four-day
trip, which started off with a din-
ner at the officer's dining area
called TRADITIONS. Educators
were greeted and entertained by
the USMC Band. At dawn the
next morning LHS educators
were bused on to the island to
experience a small portion of


what a new recruit would face.
They were'unloaded from the
bus and were told to step o 'the '
yellow shoe prints. The drill
instructors, SSgt. Gundrum and
Sgt. Fowler, gave a sample of,
what the new recruits would
face. The tour included the first
steps of getting their gear, hair
cuts and medical forms, to the
swimming tests, obstacle exercis-
es, firing range, basic martial arts
instruction, several visits to the
mess hall for lunch and breakfast,
the, medical facility, chapel and
even the PX and museum that is
on base.
Recruits have a 12-week pro-
gram in which they have to pass
the areas of fitness and mental
discipline. The most difficult part
is called the crucible. It is a three-
day period in which the recruits


do over 60 miles of marching and
learn how to work as a team to
get missions done. It is an exer-
cise of actual field events. The
educators witnessed the point of
graduation when the recruits
_became Marines by placing the
USMC insignia on their military
cap.
The next day followed with
the actual graduation ceremony
of the'new Marines as privates in
the USMC. Parents and relatives
all flooded the parade ground
with great pride. As educators the
LHS staff members were given
opportunities at any time to take
photos and ask questions ofwhat
was going on at Parris Island.
What they were able to see were
actual snippets. of what was

Murder

At a press conference January
5, Sheriff Lee had high praise for
officers who worked "around the
clock" on the murder and escape
investigations.
State Attorney Steve Russell has
asked Gov. Jeb Bush to assign
another State Attorney to handle
the Henderson case, fearing the
appearance of any impropriety
since Henderson's mother is an
employee of the State Attorney's

Brigadier General Tryon greeted
them, explained what his responsi-
bilities were and how the island
was set up into different divisions.
They learned that the women who
join the USMC only attend the Par-
ris Island Station. They are kept
totally separate from the men and
have their own division. The men
go either to Parris Island, SC or San
Diego, CA, depending on where
they join. In the short four days
these educators were taught a lot
about how the USMC does things
and why.

In July 2003, Henderson had
Been sentenced to two years state
,probation for stealing a .39 special
Smith & Wesson handgun from
the Woosley residence, where he
had stayed for several months. At
that time he was ordered to have
no contact with Mr. Woosley or his
residence at 1650 SR 29S; was
ordered to have a substance abuse
evaluation and to complete the rec-
ommended treatment; was
ordered to give his best effort at
earning a GED; and was ordered
not to possess any firearm.

NATIONAL

GLAUCOMA
AWARENESS MONTH
January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month and the
National Eye Institute along with Family Eye Care are highlight-
ing the importance of regular eye care and good vision.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable vision loss in the
United States affecting about three million Americans. High risk
groups include anyone over the age of sixty; blacks and
Hispanics over the age of forty; people of Caribbean-island ori-
gin or descent, diabetics and people who have a family history
of glaucoma. With no early warning signs of possible vision loss,
doctors urge those at higher risk for glaucoma to get regular
dilated eye examinations to help detect this blinding eye disease.
Glaucoma occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the
eye progressively increases, leading to optic nerve damage and
reduced peripheral (side) vision. As the disease worsens, the
field of vision gradually narrows and blindness may result. No
pain is noted from the increased eye pressure.
Once vision is lost from glaucoma, unlike with cataracts, it
cannot be returned.
Please call Family Eye Care at 863-675-0761 for more infor-
mation or to set-up an appointment for a dilated eye examina-
tion.

30,000 marijuana plants confiscated


Eleven individuals have been
Taken into federal custody after
members of the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office and agents of the
DEA Task Force served search
Warrants on six locations in Mon-
tura Ranch Estates last week. The
discovery is being called one of
the largest of its kind in the state.
The investigation is continuing
into the sophisticated grow house
Operation that involved numerous
properties in Montura.
I Two of the growhouses had
been under investigation for two-
to-three months, while authori-
ties gathered information on the
remaining four over just two days,

The January CTST meeting
I has caught on with the LaBelle
community, and more residents
are bringing their concerns and
wishes to the table.
Aqua Isles residents are con-
cerned over the excessive speed
that truckers and others use
entering the city limits from the
west. The possibility of installing
a traffic light at Martin Luther
King Blvd. and Highway 80 was
discussed. Debra Stallings FDOT,
stated that statistics show traffic
accidents at intersections with
'newly installed traffic lights go
up 200. percent in the first two
years. A study would have to be
ordered with crash data needed.
Stallings also said her experi-
ence in the Sebring area is that
truckers speed up, and then
honk their horns as they run the
red lights. Homeowners that are
frequent travelers of Cowboy
Way and Hwy. 80 have learned
to enter the intersection with
extreme- caution, even when
:they have the right of way,
- agreed Mike Boyle, Harold Bis-
- chel and others. Enforcement
; (tickets issued) for speeding and
red light running seem to be the
only deterrent that most people
.understand. "Getting hit in the
pocketbook with an expensive
traffic ticket and rising auto
insurance premiums do kind of
speak for- themselves," said


Dwayne Pratt LaBelle Fire Chief,
at the December meeting.
On Friday, January 7, 2005 a
man was killed in Riverdale at
the intersection of Highway 80
and Buckingham when a dump
truck turned left into his path.
The mentality of a lot of truckers
is that they are fearless and feel
protected behind all the metal of
a heavy truck. They figure the
other guy will have to yield to
them, regardless of who should
be doing the yielding.
Another citizens group call-
ing themselves the Fort Denaud
Group were in attendance to
bring attention to the lack of visi-
bility of the Fort Denaud sign off
of Highway 80. The complaint is
that because of darkness at night
and the speed limit of 60'm.p.h.
(coming from the west) it is very
difficult to slow down in time to
get into the left turning lane.
Their suggestion would be to
have advance signage. FDOT
and the county seem reluctant
and feel that additional signs
serve as a distraction at times.
Possibly a sign marking the way
to the Historic Fort Denaud
Swing Bridge would be the
answer stated Mike Boyle, City
of LaBelle, Superintendent of
Public Works.
Rock Aboujaoude', Hendry
County Engineer, reported that
1,right of way properties have
been purchased and the design
work is complete for the iealign-


ment of Hwy 29 North and 78,
however the bids have come in
at a much higher than expected
price. Of course, Hendry County
simply does not have the money
for this ambitious project. Rock
will go before the Board of HCC


with his suggestions.
Private citizens are welcome
to attend the Community Traffic
Safety Team meetings the first
Thursday of the month at the
LaBelle Fire Department at 1
p.m.

be parents
I'd like to comment on the
issues presented at the LaBelle
Middle School meeting on
December 20. The fact that
only 20 individuals cared
enough to attend tells me a lot.
Most of the parents that I've
seen want to put the responsi-
bility of raising their children
on teachers, law enforcement,
TV, babysitters. And they
whine about a dress code
infringing on their children's,
rights. Yet the dress codes are'
necessary because mothers
send their daughters to school
with clothes that are inappro-
priate for school bellybuttons
showing and the little tank
tops show too much. They're
not at home when the chil-
dren come home so the kids
are left to the own devices and
they spend their time watch-
ing x-rated TV, surfing the
internet and that kind of ques-
tionable behavior because
you know there are sexual
predators that would just love
to get an unknowing child on
the internet. Is it any wonder
that they're too. old too soon
and they rush headlong into
situations that they don't have
the maturity to handle. It's
beer proven that kids that join
gangs do so because they have
the need to belong. Well,
where are the parents? Most of
the fathers are around, making
a good& living here in LaBelle.
Society's going from bad to
worse and it's up to the par-
ents to step up to the plate and
be parents and stop blaming
teachers, law enforcement for
not doing their job. It seems to
me that parents are not doing
their job. Mothers: talk to your
daughters. Fathers: talk to your

One student's
point of view
I'm an, ex-student of
LaBelle Middle School. I went
there last year for seventh
grade. I had to change schools
and even moved to a new
town because of all the
rumors going around about
me. I hated that school but I
loved LaBelle. This was my
town where I wanted to grow
up. Then I had to leave at the
age of 13. What is.wrong with
that?
I was there last year when
all these fights went down
about "redneck/rebels" and
Hispanics. I'm not going to lie
- I was a "redneck girl." I was
there at the fights. These fights
have been going on for a long
time. I remember last year a
Hispanic kid brought a rebel
flag to school. We went to
lunch that day, then in front of
all the "rednecks" he was cut-
ting it right in half. Last year for,
hat day I was wearing a rebel
flag hat and a teacher came
running up to me and pulled it
off my head, almost made me
fall over. It's not just the His-
panics all the kids fight and
cause trouble.
This town is a little cracker
town where my grandpa's
grandpa and his grandpa
lived. I'm proud to be a "crack-
er/redneck." I love to go mud-
ding and ride ATVs. I'm never
going to step down from who
Iam.


do it?"
The young boy was apologetic.
"Please, mister.-.please, I'm sorry
but I didn't know what else to do,"
He pleaded. I threw the brick
because no one else would stop..."
With tears dripping down his face
and off his chin, the youth pointed
to a spot just around a parked car.
"It's my brother," he said. "He
rolled off the curb and fell out of his
wheelchair and I-can't lift him up."
Now sobbing, the boy asked the


stunned executive, "Would you
please help me get him back into
his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's
too heavy for me."
Moved beyond words, the driv-
er tried to swallow the rapidly
swelling lump in his throat. He hur-
riedly lifted the handicapped boy
back into the wheelchair, then took
out a linen handkerchief, and
dabbed at the fresh scrapes and
cuts.
A quick look told him every-

FAITH IN ACTION
in LaBelle
Volunteers are unique individu-
als. There are those who continual-
ly volunteer on a daily, weekly or
monthly schedule. However, the
term "episodic volunteer" refers to
a volunteer who provides a service
once in awhile. One such volun-
teer is Les King.
Mr. King was born in Lexington,
Kentucky, in 1936. He has six sib-
lings and is the second oldest child
in the family. He is no stranger to
hard work. At the early age of nine
he was sacking groceries at a local
market. He was appointed the
youngest deputy constable in the
State of Kentucky at nineteen years
of age. Les was also declared a
colonel and admiral by the Gover-
nor of Kentucky for his outstanding
citizenship. He has traveled all over
Caribbean, United States and
Canada while working as an engi-
neer and machine inspector.
After living in Kentucky and
Georgia, Florida became his home
in 1975. Mr. King moved with his
family to get away from the cold
weather. He retired in 1996 and
was a caregiver for his mother until


thing was going to be okay.
"Thank you and may God bless
you," the grateful child told the
stranger.
Too shook up for words, the
man simply watched the boy push
his wheelchair-bound brother
down the sidewalk toward their
home
It was a long, slow walk back to
the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the driver never
bothered to repair the dented side
door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: "Don't
go through life so fast that some-
one has to throw a brick at you to
getyour attention!"
God whispers in our souls and
speaks to our hearts. Sometimes
when we don't have time to listen,
He has to throw a brick at us. It's
our choice to listen or not.

Free Crapemyrtle Trees


Five free Crapemyrtle trees
will be given to each person who
joins The National Arbor Day
Foundation during January 2005.
The free trees are part of the
nonprofit Foundation's Trees for
America campaign.
"Crapemyrtles were selected
for this campaign because of
their elegant color and form,
making them an attractive addi-
tion to the home landscape,"
John Rosenow, the Foundation's
president, said. "These small
flowering trees boast perfect, six-
petaled flowers of pink and red,
with leaves that change from
summer green to autumn red,
orange, and yellow.
The trees will be shipped


postpaid at the right time for
planting between February 1 and
May 31 with enclosed planting
instructions. The six to twelve
inch trees are guaranteed to
grow.
Members also receive a sub-
scription to the Foundation's col-
orful bimonthly publication,
Arbor Day, and The Tree Book
with information about tree
planting and care.
To receive the free trees, send

THE BRICK
A young and successful execq-
tive was traveling down a neigh-
borhood street, going a bit too fast
in his new Jaguar. He was watch-
ing for kids darting out from
between parked cars and slowed
down when he thought he saw
something. As, his car passed, no
children appeared. Instead, a brick
smashed into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the brakes and
backed the Jag back to the spot
where the brick had been thrown.
The angry driver then jumped out
of the car, grabbed the nearest kid
and pushed him up against a
parked car shouting,
"What was that all about and
who are you? Just what the heck
are you doing? That's a new car
and that brick you threw is going to
cost a lot of money. Why did you

Christian Women's Outreach Group to meet


In case you have not been to a
Christian Women's Outreach
meeting or maybe you have just
moved to town, you'll want to
know about this organization. It is
a group of women from several
churches that enjoy getting togeth-
er quarterly for fellowship, friend-
ship, a time or worship and uplift-
ing messages from speakers. The
group is interdenominational and


does not speak or teach along
denominational lines. It meets four
times a year, at various churches
and just enjoy a mini retreat right
here in LaBelle.
Members want to extend an
invitation to all women in the area
to come and join them. Their next
meeting will be on Saturday morn-
ing, January 29, at Carlson Memor-
ial United Methodist Church on


Campbell Street, in LaBelle.
The doors will open at 9:30 a.m.
for a time of hospitality and the
service begins at 10. The meeting is
usually through' by noon. The
group has also begun offering
baby-sitting services.
Members hope to come togeth-
er and grow in love with our Lord
and each other. If you have recently
moved to this area, you are cordial-


ly invited. If you do not have a
church home, hey will be glad to
make you aware of the different
churches in LaBelle. If you do not
attend a church, they would love to
have you come, this is a good
opportunity to meet and form
friendships.
Look fot more information in
next week's paper.

By Jo Coombs
"Mr. Webster" gives many defi-
nitions for family. The dictionary
states that a family is a group of
people living under one roof. It
states family means a group of peo-
ple of common ancestry. Nowhere
in the many definitions of family is
the word "love" mentioned.
Hendry County has a family that
was recently described as a "Yours,
Mine and Ours" family. Ryer White
was first married to Trudi Barnes.
After Trudi passed away, he mar-'
ried Lily Grainger. Lily had children-
from her marriage to Mr. Grainger.
Then she and Ryer also had chil-
dren.


The meeting of part of this spe-
cial family was the highlight of a
recent trip to Gibsonton (a small
town just south of Tampa). It
should have felt a little strange to
meet new people, but when meet-
ing John Grainger (a former
LaBelle resident) and his wife, Lor-
raine, it was like visiting relatives.
During this visit, they spoke of a
mini-reunion, which had taken
place a few days prior. When the
annual family reunion was held,
John was sick and couldn't attend,
so the idea of a mini-reunion was
proposed.
Attending this mini-reunion was
John's mother-in-law, Edna Parker,


of Gibsonton; daughter Michele
Grainger Frye, son-in-law Kevin
Frye, grandson Josh Frye, all of
Tampa; sister Lucille Grainger
Snow, friends Sandy Tillman Hud-
son, Margie Hudson Ergle, all of
Felda; sister Jency White Rauler-
son, her daughter Rose Mason,
Rose's daughter Heather Mason
Harris and Heather's daughter
Kelsey, sister-in-law Evelyn White,
her daughter Louise Rimes, and
Ittsy Bittsy (the dog), all of LaBelle;
brother and wife Lloyd and Faye
Grainger, their son and his family
Mayo and Tammy Grainger and
three children, all of Mulberry; sis-
ter Gladys White McElyea and hus-


band Coyce of Huntsville, Alaba-
ma; niece and husband Coleen
and Hutt Gibson from Pensacola;
friend Annette Tillman Naughton
of Lakeland (formerly ofFelda).
Can you image the look on the
manager's face when all these
folks showed up at one time at
Ryan's Steakhouse for dinner?
When people show this kind of
love for each other, "Mr. Webster"
needs to get with the program and
amend his definition of family to
read: Family means a group of peo-
ple together because of love for
each other (and show the White-
Grainger-friends family as an exam-
ple).

Oops! This photo should have run with the LaBelle Child
Development Center's Reading Is Fundamental article in
the December 23 issue. These CDC students enjoyed the
caterpillar story as read by volunteer Kristi Paulin. 52
children attend this facility, one of four RCMA locations
in the LaBelle area. The photo that ran with the article
was actually East Coast Migrant Headstart students
enjoying an LHS band concert and RIF Day. We apolo-
gize for the error.

Dean's List. The Dean's List is'
comprised of Southeastern
College students who main-
tain a luil-time academic load
and earn a.3.5 grade point
average 'or higher for the
semester. Her academic
achievement stands out this
semester all the more with the,
many distractions due to three
hurricanes, which ravished
the campus and the only
county in the history of the
United States to experience-
the eyes of three, hurricanes in'


one season.
Southeastern believes
being on the Dean's List this
past fall is a testament to her
discipline and perseverance
that she pressed l1:i\Nald
toward:her success. Kristel is
a 2003 graduate from LHS and
is currently majoring in Com-
munications at Southeasterh
LIollege and has maintained a
3.5 or better since she enrolled
there.
She is the daughter of Joel

Cowgirls soccer is 2 for 3 in 2005


By Roger Alexander

The Cowgirls soccer team has
continued its great play as the
girls stormed through a Christ-
mas tournament and then won
two of three matches after the
New Year.
In the tournament LaBelle
defeated Lake Placid in the
opening round by a score of 5-2
before taking care of Riverdale
by a3-1 margin.
In the first game the Kelly


twins took care of all scoring as
Mellisa had three goals and one
assist, while sister Meghan had
the other two along with two
assists. Doriann Dyess and Becki
Lozano had the other assists,
while Maria Rodriguez collected
10 saves at the goalie position.
Against Riverdale Mellisa got
another two goals while Lozano
picked up the other one.
Rodriguez got her seventh
shutout while stopping three
attempts at goal.


LHS basketball


After the Christmas break
LaBelle came out strong as they
easily defeated Golden Gate 8-0.
Mellisa picked up five more
goals, while Meghan added the
other three. They each had three
assists while Amanda Wright got
one. Rodriguez got her seventh
shutout while stopping three
attempts at goal.
Things weren't so good the
next match as LaBelle was over-
powered by Gulf Coast, a team
that is undefeated. LaBelle was
quickly down 6-0 by the half and.
went on to lose 8-0. This was the
first time this year LaBelle was
unable to score in a game.


is 1 for 3 in 2005 Sports Briefs


By Roger Alexander

The Cowboy basketball team
came out of Christmas Break and
found the going tough. They were
involved in three physical games
and were able to come away with
just one victory.
That victory came against
Moore Haven as the Cowboys
built a 28-12 halftime lead on their
way to a 49-35 victory. Chad
Lutkenhaus led the way .with 15
points while grabbing, seven
rebounds.
In the two losses the Cowboys
fell to Bishop Verot by a 52-38
margin and lost a close one
against Immokalee by .a 52-49
score.. Once again Lutkenhaus
was the top scorer for LaBelle


against Verot as he put up 14
points.
In the Immokalee game things
were rough as LaBelle players
were constantly getting knocked
down without the calls going their
way. LaBelle went to the free
throw line just 14 times while the
Indians made it there more than
33 times.
Still, with all that LaBelle fell
just short as Holden Jones led the
attack with 20 points while
Lutkenhaus put up another 14.
Jason Williams added 10 more
for the Cowboys.
LaBelle will play at Lake Placid
before coming home for two.
They will first host Palmetto Ridge
and then take on North Port
tomorrow night.


Cowboy's soccer 7-5-1


By Roger Alexander
The Cowboys soccer team lost

score of 3-2. The two scores for
LaBelle were made by Juan Rios

Cowboys will pla\ three tough
matches this week as they face
Bishop Verot in Ft. Myers before
coming home to host
Immokalee. They then will travel

Lake Okeechobee voted best freshwater fishing


The 2004 Best of Florida
Awards featured in the September
2004 issue of Florida Monthly
named Lake Okeechobee as the
best freshwater fishing spot in the
state.
Over the past ten years, the'
magazine has polled readers for
the "best of" everything the Sun-
shine State has to offer. Choices
are given in over 140 categories,
from the Best Main Street to the
Best Outdoor Caf to the Best
Bike Shop. Under the Natural

SHERRI AND BONNIE DENNING
THE REMEDY FOR
SELLER'S REMORSE
Seller's remorse is not a com-
mon affliction, but it does hap-
pen. There are various reasons
you may be bitten by the
"remorse bug" after 'you've
accepted an offer. It may be diffi-
cult to move for sentimental rea-
sons, or because the circum-
stances that led you to sell in the
first place have changed. You
may have a nagging suspicion
that you undervalued your home.
Before you'place a call to your
Realtor asking to back out of the
agreement, however, think care-
fully about the consequences.
As with any legal proceedings,
a sudden variation from the con-
tract can engender inl!!iric!.ri
penalties. Depending on the
terms of your agreement, you
could be liable for "costs and
damages" based on "incompletion
of specific performance" (namely
the selling of your home) and
even "costs of sale" that would
oblige you to pay the agent's
commission. If you experience an
attack of seller's remorse, it's best
to take a breath and gain some
perspective by remembering your
motivation to sell in the first
place. Don't let a common reac-
tion interfere with your intended
life change.

Which NFL stadium has the largest I

fans at more than 92,000, while the I
Indianapolis Colts play before the I

Among all sports, which athlete's jer-

the start of the new millennium?
Surprisingly, it's the maroon and gold I
No. 3 worn by LeBron James ofthe
NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. The
James jersey has outsold thatof Shaq,
Kobe, even Michael Jordan, as well as
NFL sales leaders Brett Favre and
Michael Vick. James was astonishing

And then there ere the jerseys worn
bythe players of the Croatian soccer
club Dinamo Zagreb. The team had
won seven league tides since 1991, but
after Zagreb lost 8 of its first 11 games,
in 2004, irate members of a hard-core'
fan club named the Bad Blue Boys
interrupted a practice and demanded
that the players hand over their jer-
seys because they weren't worthy of
wearing the team blue. The players
complied, finishing their practice in
plain shirts, and were told they would i
get their jerseys back only after show-
ing they deserved them. Apparently i
they got the message, because Zagre
promptly went out and defeated 1
Zadar 2-1. I
