LaBelle resident GAL of the Year
By Patty Brant
You might think that nine
years of trying to shield a child
from being "run over" by adult
problems would be enough for
one woman. But Donna Baines
can't stop there. Sometimes the
legal system, which was set up
for adults, can present problems
of its own.
That's one reason why Donna
is the 20th Circuit's Guardian Ad
Litem (GAL) Volunteer of the
Year. She has taken on some very
complex cases and is willing to
"fight the hard fight."
For Donna and probably
most GALs, it's all about the kids.
"I get to work with some great
kids," she said, "and I haven't
met anyone in the program I
don't like and respect."
Donna's been in the program
since 1997, when she responded
to an ad for the program. "I
thought it was made for me," she
recalls. She and her husband,
Ron, came to Florida from Mass-
achusetts, where they each had
varied careers. As a landlord,
Donna became involved in help-
ing to take a child out of a bad
home situation. She said hearing
about the Guardian Ad Litem
program made her think,
"Maybe I could save another
Trying to rectify the damage
done in situations that shape
many children's lives drugs,
violence, neglect is emotional.
After all, Donna points out, "this
didn't exist in my world" that is,
until she became a landlord. That
was an eye-opening experience
for her seeing how little many
parents know about raising chil-
dren; how selfish and unthinking
they can be; and how their
actions affect their children.
Being able to provide some
measure of reassurance and sta-
bility to a child in crisis is the
reward for Donna and the other
Guardians Ad Litem are
assigned to look out for the wel-
fare of a child or family of chil-
dren whose parents are involved
in a court case. It is up to the GAL
to get to know the child and learn
their views, if possible. Donna
says some kids want to talk
about their problems, but others
take some gentle coaxing. As the
mother of one daughter 'and five
step-children, Donna thinks she
probably has an instinctive
"sense of kids" that helps her
open the child to accepting her
help. From there she establishes
a relationship with the kids.
Like many GALs, Donna has
no background in child psychol-
ogy, social work or anything of
the kind. "Mostly it's just com-
mon sense," she said, "and a
willingness to do the job."
Being a GAL is actually more
of a moral and emotional com-
mitment than anything else.
Donna said she spends about five
or six hours a month on each
case. The GAL visits the child's
teacher, neighbors, relatives -

Her main focuses at LHS are
discipline, attendance and cur-

she feels it will make their jobs
at educators easier.

Although Mrs. Hatfield has
not been at LHS very long, she
seems to have a firm grasp on
where things need to go in the
ever so chaotic school year. She
is still, however, in the process of
settling in and learning the ropes
a little at a time.

CITY TAXES LEPS THINK AGAIN!: It was really an eye opener to
watch the city commission meeting for the first time this past week. Our
mayor and Hilda Zimmerly could not wait to almost double the taxes for
the citizens of the city, and did not even have a clue as to what they were
going to spend the money on. They were ecstatic at the idea of having so
much of our money to spend this coming year. The city is going to have
over $180,000 more this year, than they did in the past year just because
of the new taxable value of the property of the city. And still our mayor
and Zimmerly wanted to raise our taxes almost double and didn't even
knowwhat theywere going to spend all of the money on!
PAY ATTENTION TO TAX SITUATION: Citizens of LaBelle, please
take an active roll in your city, not doing it can cost you dearly. Thank
goodness that so many concerned citizens showed up, it seemed that
Paul Puletti and Dave Lyons were the only ones concerned with the peo-
ple of LaBelle and had any idea what was going on. If it would not have
been for them and so many citizens showing up, you would be paying
almost double what is on your proposed tax assessment, thanks to our
mayor and Hilda Zimmerly.
TAX PAYERS SHOULD NOT PAY FOR TEEN PREGNANCIES: Your
front page article on teen pregnancy was in poor taste. Teen pregnancy is
epidemic in this area. I'm glad these resources are available but it tells
teens that they can have unprotected sex and the taxpayers will foot the
bill. Teens should be educated to avoid pregnancy. This article relieves
parents of their responsibility for their teenagers. It glorifies teen pregnan-
cy and is slanted like "it'sokay girls, everything will be all right."

commissioner in November that \%ill represent our interests.

Chosen People Ministries is an
over 100-year-old mission that was
founded in 1894 by Leopold Cohn,
a Hungarian rabbi who came to
believe that Jesus was the Messiah
of Israel. From humble beginnings
in Brooklyn, New York, Chosen
People Ministries has grown into a
worldwide ministry with outreach
centers in Argentina, Australia,
Canada, England, France, Ger-
many, Israel, Mexico, Ukraine and
the United States.
Throughout its long history,
Chosen People Ministries has been
uwavering in its commitment to
bring the Gospel message of salva-
tion in Jesus "to the Jew first and to
the Gentile" throughout the world.
In stressing the Jewish roots of
Christian faith, Chosen People Min-
istries hopes to make the message
of the Messiah more accessible to
Jewish people and also to help
Christian believers achieve a
greater appreciation of the Jewish
basis of their own faith traditions.
This meeting is open to the pub-
lic and Carlson Memorial would
like to invite the Christian and Jew-
ish community to attend. For more

LHS runners look
forward to season
By Coach Jef Frost
and David Mock
The first race pretty much
went as' expected as both teams
jumped from the frying pan of
daily practice and into the fire
of big time competition.
The Ft. Myers Optimist Invi-
tational is the area's largest invi-
tational with some 20 teams
competing from Naples to Sara-
sota. Teams range in classifica-
'lion from small 1A schools all
the way up to large 5A schools.
'As usual the course was wet
and muddy so it. contributed to
slcouer times for all runners. ,-.
This year t' %%uere able to
ttake a varsity girls team and
both a JV and varsilt boys
team. Although the girls varsity
team did not place very high
(171h out of 18 teams) it was a
good learning experience for
them. The team was led by
Sophomore Irene Garza who
finished 60th out of 127 runners
with a very respectable time of
25:38. She was followed by
Karina Marines 28:17, Nancy
Vasquez,29:27, Missy Olivarez
30:53, Rhonda Burton 30:09
and Ashley Pittman 32:03.
For the boys varsity, it was
pretty much the same story as
they finished 15th out of 18
teams. Drew Dyess came in first
for the Cowboys (62nd over-all
out of 135) with a time of 20:32.
Jacob Staples was second with
a time of 21:08. He was fol-
lowed by Jose Guillen 21:35,
Oscar Tovar 22:14, Brandon
Temples 24:03 and Benito
The boys JV team ran strong
and will lead to some spirited
competition on the boy's team
to see who makes \arsity (top
seven runners) at the end of the
season. Transfer student Jan
Blazek finished first with a time
of'21:40. Cesar Mateo was sec-
ond at 22:04. He.was followed.
b\ Ta\I or Saw\atzk 24:33, Juan
Gomez 25:07 and John Ramos
Competition for:'the top
seven boy's \'asitv spots is fur-:
ther complicated by the Fact
that three of the team's best
runners did not compete Satur-
day in Ft. M\ ers. Senior Stafford
King returns as the team's only
runner to qualify for regionals

SFromm and sophomore Caleb
Rhoden further add to the
teams depth. The team's next
race is Tuesday, September 19,
at Bishop Verot.
LMS fields cross
On Saturday, September 9,
the LMS Bronco Cross Country
team ran in its first ever meet,
the Seahawk Cross Country
Invitational in Naples. The girls'
team ran their hearts out for an
impressive 4th place finish
among eight schools. Leading
the way for the girls was Miriam
Carranza. Also scoring valuable
points for the girls' efforts were:
Yesenia Resindez, Angela Mar-
tinez, Jesse Whitman and
The boys team did not fair
as well as a team, but Tyler
O'Ferrell placed fourth individ-
ually and Nicolas Laredo just
missed the top 15 with a 16th

Friday was a great day for the
LaBelle High School football team.
Many were pumped up and ready
for the game. That day the high
school held its first pep rally of the
school year. It was a great way to
get everyone excited about the
rivalry game against Bishop Verot.
With the students, players and
coaches excited about the game it
was only time before the players
would step out onto the field at
7:30 p.m. However, it wasn't until
8:00 p.m. that the game would
start because of the lighting that
started to fill the sky.
In the first half of the game, the
Cowboys continuously made great
plays and runs as Bishop Verot
trailed behind. Andrew Tovar's 40-
yard run in the first quarter put
LaBelle on the scoreboard first.
The star scorer of the game was
Lucas Pratt as he made two touch-
downs scoring on a 43-yard pass
from Caleb Jordan and on a 16-
yard pass from Jordan both in the
second quarter. The Cowboys had
a great scoring game as they fin-
ished the first part of the game with
21 points. Also in the second quar-
ter, Caleb Lutkenhaus hit paydirt.
on a 25-yard pass from Jordan.
Verot also scored in the second
In the third quarter, Gabriel
Puente's 73-yard run lit up the
scoreboard for the Cowboys once

had a really hard time getting
things running offensively. The
Vikings have a very strong attack,

digs for the Cowgirls. "Heather
was all over the floor, determined
not to let anything fall!" She
picked up 14 out of the 37 digs for
the Cowgirls. "I. was extremely
happy with the hustle that the girls
put forth for this match. The team

El tema de este ano es:
El que tiene salud, tiene esper-
anza; El que tiene esperanza, tiene
todo... De el regal de'esperanza,
Lleve alguien querido a una sita
La premisa del Dia de Llevar
Alguien Querido a una sita Medica
es que las personas identifiquen
alguien quien sepan que no visit a
su medico rutinariamente, que le
hagan una sita y que el dia de la
sita, eleven a la persona al medico.
Tambien el dia sirve como recorda-
torio a todos que no nan hecho
sitas para si mismos de la impor-
tancia de una sita medical.
Las personas sin seguro o aque-
llas que no tengan buena cobertu-
ra, deben de Ilamar a su departa-
mento de salud del condado para
obtener information sobre servi-
cios gratis o de bajo costo.

tamento Nacional de Salud y Servi-
Los departamentos de salud de
los condados, juntos a socios aflia-
dos, ofreceran servicios medicos

Las personas que no pueden
hacer sita para el 19 de septiembre,
deben de hacer sita para una fecha
convenient y establecer una ruti-
na de chequeos medicos.
El 23 de agosto el jurado de
LaBelle encontro a Jorge Aguilar
Batalone culpable del delito de
agresion sexual en contra de una
menor de edad 11. El 18 de sep-
tiembre se le dara sentencia. Bat-
alone fue arrestado el 12 de enero
del 2004 despues que una menor
de 11 anos dijo a su mama que
habia sido sexualmente atacada.
El incident ocurrio en un hotel
donde Batalone habia Ilevado a la
victim y otras dos menores mas
No hay evidencia forensic en el
caso porque la victim dijo del
asalto a su madre hasta un mes
despues ya que se encontraba muy
asustada. Sin embargo, ella le
conto el incident a una de las otras
menores que estaban en la piscina.-
Batalone tambien llamo a la madre
de la victim y pidio disculpas.
STener una carrera y ser buenos
padres son las dos cosas mas
importantes que se pueden tener.
Generalmente cuando las
sabilidadyyo quiero hacer muchas
cosas, quiero estudiar medicine

reflexionar en lo important que es
la education. Como voy a sportar

Hoy tengo al padre de ella manana

ar para apoyar a mi hija. Yo aprendi
esto de mis padres, mi madre siem-

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Even the little boots got into the act last week as the LaBelle firefighters, assisted by the
American Legion Riders collected money from drivers at the intersection of SR 80 and SR
29 for their annual Muscular Dystrophy Drive. Pictured from left: Kenny Wirigard of the
Legion Riders with seven-month-old Landon Adam Marquith, LaBelle Fire Fighter Tim Allen,
Diane Davis, Mel Brant and Bill Davis, all of the Legion Riders. The group pledged $2,800
for MDA. Another crew worked the corner Saturday. Little Landon is the son of Adam and
Amanda Marquith, both EMS employees in Clewiston, and the grandson of Hendry County
VA Officer Rick Marquith and his wife, Patsy.

I love working at the polls on
voting day. I get to see people I
don't get to see any other time.
Homer Brewer is our deputy and
our entertainment. His latest joke:
- A man had a flat tire in front of an
insane asylum. He proceeded to
take the lug nuts off and acciden-
tally kicked them into the storm
drain. He stood there scratching
his head wondering what to do.
ivo boys were sitting on the
fence surrounding the place and
use two off
get you to a
garage if you drive slow." The
man asked why they were in an
asylum seeing as how smart they
were. The kids answered "We're
crazy not stupid."
Speaking of voting... We as a
county should be ashamed. The
turnout was embarrassing. It
takes just a few minutes of your
time to try and change things.
If your magazines start piling
up on you promise yourself to go
through two whenever you sit
down to watch the news. Save
articles you want and toss the
This quip from Homer. We
were waiting to get into the
polling place and the mosquitoes
were eating us and Homer took
his cell phone out and said "It's
