Chair Mary Risley have been hold-
ing board and team captain meet-
ings for several months.
Businesses, groups and indi-
viduals are asked to field teams of
10-15 members to walk the track
at LaBelle High School. At least
one member of each team should


be walking at all times during the
18-hour event. They already have
ten of the 25 teams they hope to
have this year. You may purchase

opportunities up to $5,000. Their
goal for this year is $45,000 to help.

The theme for this year is "Take

goodies. All proceeds go toward
the final figure to fight cancer.
Each year cancer survivors are
singled out for recognition those
who have struggled and can offer
a shining example to others facing
the fight of their lives. They and
their caregivers are treated to a
special luncheon prior to the day
of the relay.

Orphaned animals thrive on love


Twelve-year-old Kellie Lynn
Martinez is a special young
lady and she proves it almost
daily as she spends unselfish
hours working to make the
lives of many unfortunate ani-
mals better. Kellie's efforts
have not gone unnoticed. She
has recently been named the
Caloosa Humane Society's Vol-
unteer of the Year. She and her
family were surprised with the
honor at a dinner Dec. 8 at
Jorgy's Restaurant,
Kellie has been volunteer-
ing at the humane society for a
year. The seventh grader at
LaBelle Middle School is crazy
about animals. She is the
proud owner and caretaker of
two dogs, two cats, a snake,
one bird, hermit crabs and fish.
Her mom, Shelly Martinez, will
testify that Kellie takes care of
all her own animals. She said
Kellie is great with animals -
always patient and loves noth-
ing better than spending her
free time working with them.


Kellie's dad, David, doesn't say
much but his pride shows just
the same.
Kellie became involved at
the humane society when her
older sister Jennifer took a job
there over the summer. Kellie
tagged along, helping to do
some of the "less glamorous"
jobs like cleaning the cats and
cages. Kellie went every day
and weekends over the sum-
mer and continues to spend
much of her free time there -
no burn out for her! She thrives
on the work. As an aspiring
veterinarian, she jumped at the
chance to learn all about the
animals.
Young Kellie is hooked on
animals but has lots of other
interests, too. She also plays
alto saxophone and clarinet in
the LMS band and is on the
cross country team.
It's obvious that Executive
Director Suzanne Bonnell is as
proud as she can be of Kellie.
Suzanne said that first day at


the humane society, she could
see that Kellie knew how to
take care of the animals. She
has also been impressed with
Kellie's ability to handle
clients, help take care of adop-
tions and even assist in sur-
gery. "She's fantastic!"
Suzanne gushes, "I wish I had
15 or 20 Kellies! She has a
work ethic like an adult."
Suzanne has high praise for
all the facility's volunteers, say-
ing without them nothing
could ever be accomplished.
Recently the facility had to
send 30 animals to Naples
because there just wasn't
enough money here to care for
them all. Suzanne notes that
the humane society facility is
constantly struggling to sur-
vive, although it received a
wonderful legacy from Cor-
nelius "Kees" Huijer. His seed
money was used to build and
open the humane society off

China
Continued From Page 1
Language Institute of China,
teaching English to the Chinese.
They will both be heading back to
China in August to teach for five
more years. ELIC is a program in
which Americans travel abroad
and teach English to Chinese stu-
dents from Kindergarten-college
age. ELIC teachers teach about six
classes per day with about 30 stu-
dents in each class. While there,
the ELIC provides housing, utili-
ties, basic medical care, and a
monthly stipend. The teachers'
wage is similar to that of America,
but on an 8:1 to scale. Eight Chi-
nese dollars is equal to one Amer-
ican dollar.
There is a huge need for Amer-
ican English teachers in China,
say Sally and Matt. More people in
China are studying English than
people who speak English in the
U.S. In China teachers are held in
high regard. The Chinese society
takes good care of their American
teachers. For instance, teachers
are "placed on a pedestal" in
China because they are consid-
ered higher or more knowledge-
able than the students. One of the
main differences about teaching
in China compared to the US is
the respect students have for their
teachers. American teachers are
called "foreign experts" by the
locals. They are treated like movie
stars over there with all the locals
wanting to take their picture at all
times.
ELIC offers four different pro-.
grams: Teaching at public univer-
sities, a one year fellowship pro-
gram with a private school and
two summer programs.
During Sally's first year in
China, five years ago, she taught
first, second, third and tenth grade
at private elementary schools.
Her second year she studied
Chinese at N. China University
where she learned 1,500 out of
the 5,000 Chinese characters. Not
only does the Chinese language
have 5,000 characters, compared
to our 26 letters, but Chinese is a
tonal language, so..one word can
have several different meanings
depending on how you accent the
word. The word "tang" for
instance can mean three different
things: sugar, soup or hot.
Her third year she became a
team leader for the first program
that she taught. A team leader
supports first year teachers in
teaching growth, cultural adjust-
ment and acts as a liaison
between the organization and the
leaders of the school. She taught
with and continued in this for the
next four years. She had from 4-7
women on her team each year.
In China, students attend
school from 7:30 a.m.-noon and
then take a two hour break from
12-2:00 for lunch and a nap and
then go back from 2-5:30 p.m. but
other than that there is no school
calendar, although everyone in
China gets the same vacations.
They get one week off:for Fall .
Break the week of October 1. for
National Day and get one week
off for what would be their Spring
Break the week of May I, for
Labor Day. They also celebrate
Spring Festival. Sally says is almost
impossible to get a train ticket
then unless you know someone
that works at the train station. In
January ELIC has a teacher's con-
ference in Thailand which allows
for Matt and Sally to enjoy a great

break from the cold in a beautiful
part of the world.
The first thing Sally said she
had to learn being an American in
a Chinese culture was flexibility
because they don't live their lives
as Americans do. Things usually
change at the last minute and
plans are not made very far in
advance. But, she said, "It's really
fun and different." People have
great respect for each other and
people reciprocate relationships.
All the ELIC teachers stay in what
is called teacher or foreign lan-
guage housing. It is a very com-
munity mindset housing that is
very segregated. "
Salty said, "Living in someone
else's culture makes you realize
how influenced you are by your
surroundings." China is such a
relational culture whereas Ameri-
ca is a very direct culture. Ameri-
cans say what they want and
expect for it to be done in a timely
manner. The Chinese rarely speak
directly or say "no" even when
they mean no. They will say
"maybe" instead and insinuate
what they want done without
actually directly telling you what
to do. They are very loyal to their
friends or "in group." Culturally,
they are really good at service.
Seventy percent of their culture is
an agricultural society; the other
thirty percent is in the service
industry.
The Chinese hold what is'
called a "Moon Festival" in Sep-
tember to remember family
members. Everyone eats pastries
that are like fruit cakes, filled with
things like egg yolk or jellies.
Beijing, China, is ever chang-
ing and growing, becoming a
large city that is rapidly moderniz-
ing. For example, packaged meat
is a new thing there. Five years
ago one had to go to a meat mar-
ket to gel meat, but now you can
buy packaged meat in the grocery
store. Personal care items such as
floss and American brand hair
products are also new and much
more prevalent and easyto find.
As far as food is concerned,
American restaurants are becom-
ing more and more mainstream
with the menus usually in both
Chinese and American. There are
slight differences like the fact that
Pizza Hut is considered fine din-
ing over there. It is a more
upscale, sit down restaurant.
McDonald's offers the same
American menu but also has
other items such as oriental food
like the curry hamburger. KFC is
also very popular. Their menu is
similar to that of the American
menu but has additions such as.
the Taro pie and oriental soup.
Bread and dairy products are not
a part of the average Chinese diet.
Transportation consists of
mainly riding bikes or taking the
bus but also includes walking or
taking the subway. A taxi is the
most expensive form of trans-
portation so most don't take that
route. Travel by plane is expen-
sive for the average Chinese per-
son, so only businesspeople, the
newly rich and some from the
emerging middle class can afford
to travel this way.
For more information about
the English Language Institute call
1-800-366-3542 or go online to
www.ELIC.org. If someone is
interested in teaching in China
they don't necessarily have to
have a teaching degree but they
do have to have a bachelor's
degree and be willing to teach
English to the Chinese.

Mr. Jules was pronounced
dead at the scene. Mr. Yeager and
a passenger, Paul J. Sulwiskows-

injuries and transported to
Naples Community Hospital.
There were two other passengers
in the bus: Brian A. Hunt, 20, and
Marc A. Smith, 39, both of
Naples. Other passengers: in the
Deleon vehicle were: Juan T.

was no word on injuries.
Just three minutes later, at 5
a.m., a 1999 Acura, driven by
Martha D. Telusnor, 45, of
LaBelle, was headed west on
Immokalee Road. She struck the
Jules vehicle, which was disabled
in the road after the head-on
crash with the transit bus. Ms.
Telusnor told FHP the only thing
she could see were the lights of a

vehicle due to the dense fog. She
steered right in an attempt to
avoid hitting anything near the
deputy's vehicle and struck the
rear bumper of the Jules vehicle.

ed Way Partner Agencies are
there to help anyone through
those tough times in life," said
Cliff Smith, United Way Presi-
dent.
A local network, 31 agencies
and programs will receive funds
from the 2006-2007 United Way
of Hendry/Glades fundraising
campaign. These agencies
include, The Salvation Army, The
Children's Advocacy Center,
Child Care of Southwest Florida,
Healthy Families and many oth-
ers. This network of agencies
serves a diverse range of need in
our community, including nur-
turing youth and children,
strengthening families, improv-
ing health and independence for
the sick and elderly, providing a
safety net for people in'crisis and
helping the disabled reach their
potential. The network of Unit-
ed Way agencies helped over
21,000 people in Hendry and
Glades counties last year. Exten-
sive volunteer involvement
allows the United Way to keep
fundraising costs extremely low
and community volunteers eval-
uate agency performance and
tlioroughly study agency budg-'
ets and programs to make sure
United Way dollars are spent effi-
ciently and with impact. All the
money raised through the Unit-
ed Way of Hendry and Glades
County Campaign remains in the
Hendry and Glades county area
helping people who really need
help.
Those that are in need of serv-
ices, or those wishing to volun-
teer their time, to organize
employee-giving programs or to

paign can contact the United

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog."
Most citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe
their public officials at work, or to determine how well public insti-
tutions are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs"
than "watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog"
role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a
courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your

Caloosa Belle. Thursday, December 21,2006


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Rotarian Jim Brownlee presents a check for $1,100 to the
Salvation Army. A surprised and grateful David Westphal
accepts the donation at the Dec. 5 Rotary Club meeting. The
club meets at Boo Boo's Restaurant Tuesdays at noon.
Rotarians raised the money by selling hot dogs at the recent
Christmas in the Park event.

Rotary supports goals


of the Salvation Army


By Patty Brant
Rev. Jay Goforth of Carlson
Memonal United Methodist Church
provided some little knw:,\n back-
ground on the %ery velJknowTi Sal-
vation Army. He said I 'ishjalli y a
church, established in London,
England, in 1865 by a Methodist cir-
cuit rider named 'William Booth. He
was assigned to the dangerous and
very poor neigh-borhoods of the
East End and began tending to the
criminals and prostitutes of the
area, filling empty seats at the
Methodist church with the outcasts
of society. VWhen he was himself
cast out of the Methodist church he
established the Salvation Army to
help mend broken lives. Answering
a reporter's question about his
members being "volunteers" to:
help the downtrodden, he said,
"We are not volunteers. We are a
salvation army."
In 1880 the Salvation Army was
launched in the United States
where it is better known for its
social \vork. Rev. Goforth told the
Rotarians that he was a member of
the Salvation Arm, church and
worked with gangs and prostitutes
in New York Cih, \\esiern Pennsyl-
vania, Hartford, Conn., and other
places before joining the Methodist
church. The Salvation Army
remains %ery close to his heart, he
said.
Salvation Army Community
Relations Director Da\id \Westphal
gave an overview of the LaBelle
Service Unit. In 2005, he said the
local unit assisted 5,175 people and
ministered to about 1,000 prison-
ers. At Christmas, 2,578 gifts and
food baskets were provided to the
needy. The unit also provided
Thanksgiving food baskets and


manned a food pantry throughout
the year. It also provides monetary
assistance for electric bills, gas,
transportation and medical expens-
es and even furniture. No one with
a need is turned away, he said.
Donations are needed and
always appreciated, Mr. Westphal
said, although he cautioned that
people should not send out-of-date
canned goods to charities because
they have to be discarded. Every
year, he said the Salvation Army has
to discard about 40 percent of the
food stuffs they receive because
thev are out of date so your good
intentions may not come out the
way you want them to.
He told the Rolarians that resi.
dents can pick up paper grocery
bags marked with suggested food
items. You are requested to fill the
bag at your own leisure and return
them, filled, to the Salvation Army.
The items in that bag can feed a
family of four for week and a half.
Salvation Army board member
Callie Walker reported that the
LaBelle Unit was established 12
years ago. She recalled its first
budget was just $600 per year. The
proposed 2007 budget is over
$100,000. She said the food pantry
provided 853 boxes of food last
year, including meat, at a cost of
about $30,000 and noted that the
2005 kettle drive was the most suc-
cessful ever, bringing in almost
$13,000 for the cause. She also
noted that about 80 percent of the
funds raised during the Christmas
season by Salvation Army bell
ringers stays right here in LaBelle.
.- -The Salvation Army provides
assistance all year round because,
as Mr. Westphal said, "Need knows
no season."

It vill take six plus million dol-
lars to construct the facility that will
house the Education Center of
Southwest Florida in 2009. Since
the ECSWF is a non-profit private
career and technical education
school there will be no state funds
for this construction. How can you
support the construction and oper-
ation of the ECSWF? Listed are
some ideas for you to consider.
Remember the operation of the
school is under the direction of a
diverse, competent and qualified
board of directors representing you
and the best interests of your com-
munity whether it be LaBelle,
Clewislon, Moore Haven, Pioneer,
Ortona, Montura, Palmdale. Alva.
Muse, Crescent Acres, Ft. Denaud
or other location within a 30 mile
radius of the school and even fur-
ther.
I. Give a healthy donation to the
Education Center of Southwest
Florida, P.O. Box 183, LaBelle,
Florida 33975 remembering the
school is a 501 (C) (3) organization
eligible for a tax break. Your dona-
tion would go in the building or
scholarship fund... ..
2. Become an annual sponsor
of a building, classroom or pro-
gram.
3. Provide a scholarship yearly
or whenever the opportunity is pre-
sented. For example, $ 3,500
would sponsor a local student to
enroll in the heavy equipment
operator training program, $3,000
would sponsor a student for the
construction trades worker train-
ing program. $150 would sponsor
a student to enroll in either the
Quickbooks accounting class or


the beginning computer classes.
-1. Invite representatives from
the ECSWF to speak to your
church, fraternal, civic or other
service organization.
5. Send information about job
openings at your business or other
businesses to the ECSWF to share
with students and others inquiring
about employment.
6. Ask howv the ECSWF can
assist in meeting the training needs
of your company's employees or
prospective employees. The edu-
cation center may be able to coor-
dinate \our training needs.
7. Recommend the ECSWF pro-
grams to those in need of employ-
ment or needing to upgrade their
workforce skills. The education
center may be able to guide them
or meet their need.
8. Support the Captain Hendry
Dinner each fall. Buy a ticket to
attend and bid on the cakes and
other items in the auction. The pro-
ceeds go to the ECS\\T.
9. Speak up for the ECSWF.
Share the ECS\\T visionn to provide
training for the workforce in south-
west Florida, especially in Hendry
and Glades counties to meet the
needs of local businesses. Share
your ideas to promote or raise
funds for the ECSWF with board
members of ESWF staff.
10. Encourage your business or
employer to become an active
partner with the ECSWF. There will
be a need for advisors: for the pro-
grams, teachers for the classes,
directors to serve on the Board and
equipment. Your business or
employer can be a partner in meet-
ing these needs.


No charges filed against Pratt


The State Attorney's Office has
found that there is insufficient evi-
dence to file any charges against
former Fire Chief Dwayne Pratt.
According to the SAO's disposi-
tion notice, "no 'evidence of a
crime" as stated in the affidavit


filed by the Investigator Larry
Preece was found. Forgery is a
third degree felony
An investigation had been
ongoing since October 29 in refer-
ence to alleged forgery in his for-
mer position as fire chief.

Happy ending
It's an ending that does justice to that holiday favorite, "It's
a Wonderful Life" well, almost. Anyway the folks at Fam-
ily Eye Care were thrilled when they got a call from a
woman who had Chocolate their beloved moose. It
seems the woman had unwittingly purchased the pur-
loined moose from a stranger. Seeing the "missing" photo
in last week's Caloosa Belle, she immediately called the
rightful owners to return Chocolate to his family. By this
time the devastated "family" had tried to assuage their sor-
row by purchasing another moose. So, Chocolate
returned home to a happy family and a new girl friend, they
call Hottie. The pair can be seen at the office, contentedly
grazing side by side. Who knows, by next Christmas there
could be yet another addition to the moose family!

life insurance, Part 1

immercial,

an pay off
eirs. Many
*e used for
SMortgage
ugh banks


sell this coverage through their
agents, those rates are not always
the lowest. You can use a form
known as an ATIMA form (As
Their. Interest May Appear) to
assign to a bank or mortgage
holder, only the amount of your
policy necessary to cover the
mortgage. The balance goes to
your spouse or whomever you
name. Covering your mortgage
debt is almost always an excellent
idea.
If you have minor dependent
children, they stand to.collect
from the Social Security Adminis-
tration a reasonably fair monthly
income, payable to your spouse
or the other parent/guardian who
will raise them at your death.
However, that may not be suffi-
cient to maintain them, .as they
have been accustomed. Addition-
ally your spouse, working or non-
working, may not be able to earn
enough income to replace your
lost wages Thus the family suffers.
Consider a limited-duration term
policy to provide additional fund-
ing for your children and spouse.
These policies are generally inex-
pensive.


Cook and prepare holiday food safely


As local residents get ready for
the holiday season, Hendry and
Glades County Health Depart-
ment Director Neftali Fernandez,
M.D., emphasizes the importance
to safely prepare and store food to
prevent possible food borne ill-
nesses.
"As family feasts are being pre-
pared for Christmas, local resi-
dents and visitors should practice
proper food hygiene," said Dr.
Fernandez. "Residents should
wash their hands and counter
tops thoroughly before and after
preparing foods to help eliminate
bacteria. Foods should be cooked
at the appropriate temperature
and leftovers should be stored in a


refrigerated area."
Dr. Fernandez also suggests
that food preparers adhere to
safety tips in order to prevent pos-
sible food borne illnesses.
Factors that can contribute to
food borne illnesses include:
improper storage of food
(inadequate refrigeration temper-
ature or hot holding temperature)
improper washing of hands
and fingernails
improperly cooling foods
cross contamination (e.g.,
from uncooked meat to salad
ingredients)
improperly cleaned and san-
itized eating and cooking utensils,
work areas and equipment


contamination of food, uten-
sils and equipment from flies,
roaches and other pests.

People who have liver disease
or diabetes, who have had gastric
surgery or who are Immune-com-
promised should avoid eating ra\v
oysters or other raw animal pro-
tein during the holidays. Oysters
that are thoroughly cooked or
have been post-harvest treated
can be consumed by people with
the above underlying physical
conditions to minimize the risk of
infection from Vibrio vulnificus.


The Hendry Glades County
Health Department promotes and
protects the health and safety of
the two counties through the
delivery of quality health services
and the promotion of health care
standards. For additional informa-
tion please contact them at any ot
their three sites or via e-mail
address at:
http: doh.slate.l1.us chd-
Hendry home.html. For more

What is your advice for raising children?


Rick Fineout said, "My favorite
Christmas memory is getting
Christmas trees that are too
big for the living room and
... then having to trim 3 ft. off the
top and the bottom."


Connie Fineout said, "My T "
favorite Christmas memory
took place back in 1990 when .
we took our 10 year-old fos-
ter son named Greg, to cut
down a Christmas tree in i
New York State."


Dilsey Graham Lee said, "My
favorite Christmas memory was
when I was young and spent
*" Christmas with a dependable mom
and dad and a loving family. Now I
Just consider it a blessing to be
alive and a part of Hendry County
Where I was born and raised. I
have nine siblings. I am the 5th
one. I have four older and four
S younger siblings. I couldn't think
of a better place to live than in
LaBelle. My daddy, Eddie Graham,
was the first black deputy in
LaBelle. Merry Christmas, Happy
New Year and God bless to all."

Lillie Mae Leathers said, "I --
have a loving memory of
being raised in LaBelle and
spending Christmas with my -
mother and father when they -
were still alive and my hus- "
band Johnny Leathers before
he was in the nursing home
in LaBelle."

Bob Roper said, "My favorite
SlE w ""--^- Christmas memory happened the
Year of 1936 or 1937 when I was
I about ten years old and my older
Brother bought me a bike. He
worked as a paper boy for the
Miami Herald and gave 25 cent a
week to a bike shop to have a bike
made for me. The only question I
remember him asking me was
P-' lF what my favorite color was. Of
S course I told him royal blue and
that was the color of my bike."


Marisela Hernandez said, "My
favorite Christmas memory was
when my whole family got together
here in LaBelle and we celebrated
Christmas together. We hadn't
seen each other for awhile
because they're from Mexico."


To al: Politically,


correct salutations


Spousal Protection. In our
world today, this does not just
apply to wives. It applies to hus-
bands as well. If a working
spouse dies, the survivor is left
with a serious loss of annual
income. It's not only the mort-
gage and child-rearing expenses.
It's the automobile, and clothes,
and food, and a whole lot of other
bills coming due. You probably,
but not always, have some group
term life insurance through your
employer. It is most often about
two years of your annual income.
It usually is not enough. You also
need to check the beneficiary on
it. I have seen many times when a
child is named as a loving gesture,
but that may' really hurt financially
and emotionally the spouse. A
permanent plan of insurance,
such as a cash-building Universal
Life policy is. frequently used for
this need. From your agent
require an illustration fully funded
to age 100 at a reasonable interest
rate.
Next week I will continue with
a whole bunch of additional
ideas. Wayne C. Swvitzer, CLU,

Chamber makes season special


.w-.. .... ---
Submitted photo/Elaine Hudson
Randy Hudson in his football uniform before his surgery.

Enjoying life again


By Kristin Hunter
Randy Hudson is the typical 15-
year-old boy. He played football
and went through the same things
most teenage boys do, until one
day in September. Sitting in class,
he noticed that his neck felt sore. By
the time he told his parents about a
week later it had turned into a
bump about the size of golf ball.
Antibiotics did the trick, or so it
seemed, but as soon as he finished
them, the bump started coming
back., Eventually, the doctor
referred him to an oncologist. Dr.
Salmon could not cure it with even
stronger antibiotics. A cat scan told
them was that it looked like a large
abscess lull of puss or a lump of
some kind. Then the lump
changed position from a ball to
stretching out the full length of
Randy's neck. Only surgery was
lelt to find out if it was cancer.
%\ell. 1,hat ihe\ found was a
er- large abscess full of puss and.
severe inflammation. He went in


for surgery on Friday the 13th of
October, about one month after
having a sore neck. They were
absolutely no bacteria in the
drainage. Even the doctor was sur-
prised. Apparently, the antibiotics
got rid of the bacteria but there was
no way to drain the puss. It would
have only continued to get bigger
without surgery.
4The Hudsons have a total of
$47,000 in doctor bills. Al one point,
the insurance company denied the
hospital stay claim and it is still
under medical review The scary
part is Randy wasn't sick when it
came on. He had been healthy,
playing football, so the Hudsons
thought that maybe it was from
being hit in football practice.
Mrs. Hudson says, "The
unknown as a parent was our
biggest tear. We assumed the
worst and hoped for the best."
Randy says he feels fine now and is
just a little sore where the scar is
healing But rih sa\s the pirls think
it's really cool.

times I think she's right.

Dear Santa,
I have been extremely good this
year. Better than last year. I've put
up almost all my Christmas decora-
tions. Here are some things I want
for chistmas. First, I want a soft air
pump shotgun. That's a shotgun
that shoots plastic bb's! Second, I
would like a new Wongose bicycle.
I've had my old rusty bike for five
years and it is also broken. For my
third gift, I want two dvd's. One of
the dvd's is Ice Age the Meltdown
and the other one is Pirates of the
Carabian. Those are the gifts I want
for Christmas.
Sincerely,
Blenn Burton
Dear Santa-how are the elves?
And how is Mis. Clase? Are you
coming in a rein deer or in a sleigh?
I hope you bring me presents, that
would be great. Oh how isit in the
North pole? Is it real cold? Or is it
hot? I think it must be real cold. And
I think it must be real cold in the
South pole to.
Love, Luis Chairez
DearSanta,
What I want is a Harry Potter
nutcracker. I really want one
because Harry Potter is my favorite
movie ever. Plus, I love the nut-
cracker ballet. It's so cool! I would
really appreciate it if you brought
me a new and nice Harry Potter


nutcracker. That is what I would
like for Christmas, a Harry Potter
nutcracker.
Sincerely,
EmmaWhite
DearSanta,
What I want for Christmas is an
IPod.
I like IPods because you can
hear any music you want. If you
want you can change any music to
anther song.
I want the thin ones because
you can put it in your pocket of your
pants or shorts. My favorite coler for
the iPod is green. You really need to
be careful because if it falls it can
break. And you can take it with you
to run or work or clean the house. I
think almost all the iPods you can
put like 1,000 songs in it.
If I was you I would get an ipod
for Christmas because they are
really cool.
Thankyou,. : .
Evelyn Soto
Dear Santa,
Can you get me a porter, dvd.

Dear Santa,
I wish that I could have some-
thing to play with when I'm lone-
ly. Someone who will always be
their when I'm sad. Who am I
talking about? A puppy, because I
have two little sisters. So that's
why they won't'let me have a
puppy, because they think it'll
scare them. I have earned it,
because I always take care of my
sisters, I always did my chores.,
And if, you give me a puppy I will,
always, wash him, feed him, and
walk him around to be in good
health. So please Santa, let me
have a cute, wonderful, little
puppy that'll be a best pal to me,
and I'll be the best friend that a
puppy could ever have..
Your Pal,
Jose Errequin
PS Merry Christmas

Dear Santa,
I've been a good girl, I never
get into trouble, well maybe once
or two but that's okay.
I want a lot of things for Christ-
mas, but I don't know what to
choose. Whatever you give me I'll
be happy with. Just remember
I'm always a good girl.
Your pal,.

Dear Santa,
Hi, I was hoping you could get
me a phone. My parents don't
%%ant me to have one, but I was
thinking Since I do my chores
and homework, maybe I could
get one. I have been good, but my
brother has not. He says that I can
get a doll, but not a phone. If I get
this phone I promise I would do
twice the chores and homework,
if you get me a phone. I would
like the phone to have small but-
tons. There would b-ea special
place in my room for it. So if you
... get me a phone, I would bring
'you more cookies. It would d be
good for me because if I get in a
situation that I can't get out of. I1
could call my mom or dad. So if
you get me this phone, I thank-
you.
Love, Ashley
SPS I will still leave cookies for
you %%hen you come.

Dear Santa,
Hey, I would like a nice PS3 for
Christmas because I have been
good and I help my mom with my
baby sister a lot. I hope you have a
good Chrismas. But I also would
like to have a nice Chrismas with
my family. I hope you and Miss
Santa have a good cheerful Christ-
mas day with the family. I also like
a bigger house so I can have a big-
ger room, please Santa, please.
But tell Mrs. Santa to have a Won-
derful Christmas. But can I please
have a really nice car'" Well, if you
can't get that it is fine. I have'a
great family, so please let them
have a Joyful Christmas. May I
have a nice 4 wheeler? Thank
you.
Yourpal,
AdriannaArriola

Dear Santa,
My parents won't allow me to
have a mouth grill, but if you
would get me one I know they
would understand.
They would understand
because if they think back they
would see how hard I worked. I
did chores all day, they still would-
n't let me get a grill. It would help
me become more popular. My
parents say they look like rotten
teeth and they think it looks stu-
pid. I worked at a part time job. I
earned enough money for it, they
still didn't let me buy it. But I
believe you can get it for me and I
promise to be the same person I
was before..I tried to persuade
them to buy it, but she would find
out.


I tried and tried and tried, but
,maybe you will hopefully get it for
me.
