Respect, gratitude etched in granite


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Law enforcement person-
nel came together May 28 to
pay their respects and a debt of
gratitude to two Hendry County
lawmen who lost their lives in
the line of duty. A stone monu-
ment to their memory was
dedicated that day in a solemn
ceremony under the .oaks in
front of the Sheriff's Office.
The monument stands si-
lently in memory of Sheriff Earl
Dyess, Sr. and Deputy Brian
Haas. Sheriff Dyess died in Au-
gust 17, 1980, stabbed in the
early morning hours by several
young prowlers. He had been
Hendry County's top lawman
since 1961, when it was just a
two-man department.
Deputy Haas died in a crash
on US 27 when he was on his
way to a answer a prowler call


April 24, 2004. He had only
been on the department since
August 2002 and went on the
road Dec. 1, 2003.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee noted
the contingents from other lo-
cal departments who came to
honor these two fallen Hendry
County officers. Personnel from
Clewiston Police Department,
Seminole Police Department,
the State Attorney's Office and
Clewiston Fire Department
stood solemnly with Hendry
County officers and members
of the public during the brief
ceremony.
Family members of the fall-
en officers had seats of honor.
Sheriff Dyess' two sons, Fred
and Sermon, and his grand-
son, Fred Dyess Jr., along with
Bob and Norie Hass and Sonny
Haas sat quietly as their loved
ones were eulogized.


Rev. C.W, Howard spoke lov-
ingly of his memories of Sher-
iff Dyess, Sr. - his high school
mentor. Rev. Howard admitted
he was a troubled young man
at that time, and credited Sher-
iff Dyess, Sr., with helping him
get his life in order. The young
man even worked for his men-
tor, manning the radio from
midnight to 7:30 a.m. then
spent a half day in school as a
senior. He said Sheriff Dyess Sr.,
had a unique ability to relate to
people - and he knew how to
express discipline and reach
out to "the underdog."
The reverend noted "Blessed
are the peacemakers," and ad-
monished those in the audi-
ence to remember their cour-
age, their willingness to put
themselves on the line to com-

Tour reveals magic of water resources

business and community lead-
ers with a sense of adventure
hopped on "The Magic Bus" for
a tour of the Caloosahatchee
River Basin and beyond to ex-
amine first-hand the water is-
sues in the region.
In "The Magic School Bus"
series of children's books, Ms.
Frizzle teaches science in a
rather unorthodox manner by
loading her class in the bus
and exploring unknown terri-
tory. The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
took a page from Ms. Frizzle
when Sally McPherson at the
Lower West Coast Service Cen-
ter led the all-day field trip.


After a kick-off briefing at
the Edison-Ford Winter Estates
where Dr. Bill Hammond spoke
about the ecology of the region
and set the stage for the day,
participants boarded the bus.
Driving all the way to Fort
Myers to participate were sev-
eral community leaders from
Hendry County: Janice Groves
with the Economic Develop-
ment Council, Sara Townsend
with the LaBelle Chamber of
Commerce, Janet Papineau
with Hendry County, Gene
McAvoy with Hendry County
Extension Office. Sites visited in
the Glades area included a river
stop at Barron Park in LaBelle,
views of Lake Okeechobee in


Clewiston, The SFWMD field
station in Clewiston, the South
Bay RV Park and the large pump
station at 20-Mile bend (S-5A)
as well as the recently opened
recreation area at Stormwater
Treatment Area I-East.
SExperts shuttled on and
off the bus to discuss the his-
tory and cultural heritage of the
river, restoration projects along
the river for water storage and
water quality, and future land
uses in the basin. Speakers ad-
dressed the history, missions
and governance of water man-
agement as well as develop-
ments that led to the need for

Grand Jury





indicts three


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Two of the four people ar-
rested and charged in a brutal
attack that killed one man and
sent another to the hospital
were indicted by a Grand Jury
May 23.
James Henry Williams of
LaBelle and Virgen Osario of
Clewiston, both 19, were in-
dicted for first degree murder,
attempted first degree murder
and two counts of robbery with
a deadly weapon. The indict-
ment is the result of an incident
last Nov. 23-24, which included
Jaquil Williams, 18, of LaBelle
and Josefa Osario, now 21, of
Clewiston.
According to sheriff's re-
cords, at 1:46 a.m. Nov. 24,
2007, deputies responded to a
robbery report.
One victim said he and an-
other man had been picked up
at the Azteca store on SR 29
and driven to a location called
the "rock pits" near the end of
E Road south of LaBelle.
The two women reportedly
enticed the men with promises
of sex while the two men wait-
ed in their vehicle. �


At the rock pits they were
attacked with a cue stick and a
piece of 2x4; they were kicked
and punched in the head and
face. Both had reportedly been
robbed of a total of about $100
in cash.
At 6:45 a.m. the body of
Jose Cruz, 20, was found in the
wooded area off E Road. He
had been attacked by James
Williams and Virgen Osario.
The second victim, Jose Lo-
pez Francisco, 29, had managed
to walk away and summon as-
sistance: He had been attacked
by Jaquil Williams and Josefa
Orsario.
A Grand Jury also indicted
Vernon Dwayne Stevens, 25,
of Clewiston on May 23. He
was indicted for homicide, ar-
son and robbery. Stevens was
taken into custody after a body,
later identified as 60-yeat-old
Epitacio Antonio Hernandez-
Beltran, was found in a burned
residence at 236 Avenida del
Sur in Montura last October.
Another man, Raymond Al-
berto Diaz, 45, was also report-
edly involved in the strangula-
tion and robbery.


Opportunities


ahead I
By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Last year, Florida Gulf Coast
University (FGCU) prepared an
in-depth study of agriculture
in Southwest Florida, its chal-
lenges and its future. The study
reveals what top agricultural
executives see as the area's
strong and weak points in agri-
business; what the future may
hold for local agribusiness. Re-
cently, the overall state of ag-
riculture in Southwest Florida
was discussed.
This article will deal how
surveyed executives feel South-
west Florida agriculture can
deal with the challenges that
will be available in the coming
years.
The word is opportunity,
and the survey reveals 12 areas
of opportunity for Southwest
Florida farmers: citrus, com-
petition, vegetables, alternative
fuels, land and land credits, or-


or ag
namentals, sugar cane, cattle,
environmental, education,
vertical integration and food
safety.
Science is expected to have
a major influence on the citrus
industry in the future, with im-
proved stocks and answers to
canker and greening problems.
Growers with links to proces-
sors will have an advantage, it
is believed, and the use of crop
subsidies will enhance com-
petitiveness.
Growers could also move
operations to foreign soils to
circumvent restrictions.
In vegetables, astute local
farmers should be able to fill
demands for certain crops and
also take advantage of alterna-
tive fuel demands coming into
the picture.
Ornamental demand should
be fueled by a rising housing
market in the future.

current restoration efforts.
At a park beside the river in La-
Belle, the director of the Hendry
County Agricultural Extension Of-
fice spoke about the many facets
Sof agriculture and its economic
impact in southwest Florida.
A drive-by of the SFWMD
Clewiston Field Station included
information on how the District
operates and maintains the sys-
tem of canals, pumping stations
and water control structures and
.how those responsibilities have
multiplied with Everglades resto-
ration projects coming on line.
The bus navigated up to the
top of the Herbert Hoover Dike
for a view of Lake Okeechobee,
so shrunk by the ongoing drought
that, there was actually a fire rag-
ing inside the lake.
. At a lunch break beside the
Dike in South Bay, the Lake
Okeechobee Division Director
spoke about issues and projects
affecting the Lake before the bus
moved on to the District's largest
pumping station to learn about
the enormity of the role water
movement plays in living in south
Florida.
The last stop was at a storm-
water treatment area (STA) where
water is manipulated through
treatment cells and where plants
remove phosphorus and other
nutrients from the water before it
is discharged into the Everglades.
The goal of the "Magic Bus
Tour" was to have 47 community
leaders become aware of regional
water issues and be able to pass
their knowledge on to others.
Participants came from a variety
of backgrounds and experiences
and now they have new knowl-
edge to share.

Environmentalists and farmers
have not always seen eye-to-eye,
but as one executive put it, "it
is better for them to have farms
than a Wal-mart parking lot." Be-
tween urban development and
agriculture, agriculture could be a
natural ally for environmentalism
since both sides have a vested in-
terest in taking care of the land.
One bright light of opportu-
nity is science, which continues
to fight against citrus diseases
and to develop stronger root
stocks, according to the study.
Vegetables remain in demand
and agriculture is being tagged
with an opportunity to expand
into the search for viable alterna-
tive fuels.
Ornamentals should remain

farmers and environmentalists to

Port LaBelle Sheriff's Suboffice


dream gets one step nearer


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
After many years, residents
of Port LaBelle are finally seeing
some progress on the promised
Hendry County Sheriff's Subof-
fice for that area.
On May 27, a small group gath-
ered at the site to mark the erec-
tion of a sign at the site. It was the
beginning of the fulfillment of a
promise.
County Commission Chair Ja-
Snet Taylor said, "It's a great com-
munity program, a challenging
time for the residents."
Port LaBelle Community De-


velopment District earmarked
$500,000 for the sheriff's sub-of-
fice years ago.
The ' money was collected
from 1983-89 from Port LaBelle
residents and has been kept in a
fund since that time, according to
Community Development District
General Manager Lester Baird.
The county plans to build a fa-
cility approximately 3,200 square
feet, which the BOCC will design
and own, on the one-acre site.
Port LaBelle CDD added even
more value to the donation by
clearing the land.
The site is located on NW Rain-


tree Drive, just north of Keystone
Circle and northwest of Dellwood
Terrace:
CDD Board Member Michael
Arndt commented, "This is en-
demic of the cooperation that
needs to take place in this county.
It's why the Port LaBelle CDD ex-
ists."
Mr. Lester Baird said Glades
County sheriff's and Florida High-
way Patrol personnel will be wel-
come at the facility. He added that
the suboffice "will make the com-
munity safer with more police
presence than ever before."

County of


Man Finds 30-Carat Diamond After


mammograuhv Using Thera-Gesic�


1 e/


at HRMC


Hendry Regional Medical
Center has enhanced its health
and wellness services available
to women, with the addition of a
new Selenia"' digital mammog-
raphy system from Hologic�.
Digital mammography will allow
HRMC to provide its patients with
the highest quality of care in the
prevention and early detection of
breast cancer.
Digital mammography allows
the radiologist to view the X-ray
image more closely, zeroing in on
suspicious or concerning areas
and enabling them to make de-
cisions about additional images.
Digital mammography takes less
than half the time of traditional
film-based exams.
In conjunction with the digi-
tal mammography unit, HRMC
is also offering Computer-Aided
Detection (CAD). CAD provides
a "second read" of the mammo-
gram by a computer.
This assists the radiologist in
making an accurate diagnosis, like
spell check in word processing.
HRMC provides a comprehensive
scope of services addressing the
physical, emotional and educa-
tional needs of its patients.
Services include screening
programs, diagnosis, interven-
tion, treatment and management
of many different diseases of the
breast, along with educational
and support resources.
Each and every patient at
HRMC receives personalized
care, designed to meet individual
needs. HRMC is committed to
providing exceptional care to the
women and men in the Hendry-
Glades community.

EARNING A LIVING: Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I
work and they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes
my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to
pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. What I do,
have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who,
don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test
to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back
on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping
someone sitting on their butts, doing drugs, while I work. Can you
imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass
a urine test to get a public assistance check?


It's Your Day, Dad!


By Dr. Les Morgan
Several years ago a local news-
paper ran a contest for children
on the subject, "My Pop's Tops"
just before Father's Day. Here are
some of the entries from children,
(misspellings, poor grammar, and
all)
*My pop's tops because he is
not got a bad tempir. He don't get
mad easy, but when he does he
allus has a good reasin - me.
*My pop's tops because he
lets me help him in the garden
even when I don't want to.
*He let's me take acordine le-
sions and practice outside. When
I practice outside he goes inside.
He can hear better from a dis-
tance.
*He is never to tired to sit
strawled out in his easy chair
telling stories while we children
wash up the dishes.
*Every child should love their
father because if it was not for
'their father where would they
be? Nowhere, that's where they'd
be. If it wasn't for father wouldn't
hardly see. no children around
Milwaukee.
Well there you have it, dad...
no way around it - you are tops.
Just ask the kids!
Not long ago I found a piece in
article that details the progression
of how children transition in their
thinking and move in relationship
to the fathers. See if this sounds
familiar.
Age 4 - My Daddy can do any-
thing!
Age 7 - My dad knows a lot...
Sbut not a whole lot.
Age 8 - My father does not
know quite everything
Age 12 - Oh well, naturally,
dad doesn't know that either.
Age 14 - Dad??? He is hope-
lessly old-fashion
Age 21 - Oh, that guy? He is
helplessly out of date.
Age 25 - Oh he knows a little


bit about it, but not much.
Age 30 - I must find out what
dad thinks about'it.
Age 35 - Before we decide,
let's get dad's idea on.it, ok?
Age 50 -What would dad have
thought about that?
Age 60 - I wish I could talk it
over with dad once more.
Dad, it is a great title you have.
While mother's have access to
the spirit of a child like no one
else on earth, and many ways,
so do you. To your little boys you
are rpore than Tarzan, Superman
and Spiderman together. Don't let
those children down!
To the little girls in your home,
dad, you are several things -
strong, protector, lover of their
mother, keeper of the house, and
the one who will affirm them as
those girls enter their teen years
and adulthood. Assume the posi-
tion, Dad.
The Bible gives you a place in
the home unmatched by any oth-
er. Deliver the goods! Any dead
fish can float downstream! Be a
man! Be the dad!
Admiral Richard Byrd wrote
the following on his deathbed:
"At the end, only two things re-
ally matter to a man, regardless
of who he is and that are the af-
fection and understanding of his
family. Anything and everything
else he creates are insubstantial.
They are the ships given over to
the mercy of the winds and the
tides of prejudice, but the fam-
ily is an everlasting anchorage, a
quiet harbor where a man's ships
can be left to swing to the moor-
ings of pride and loyalty."
Wise words from a wise man.
What are you going to do
about it, dad?

loosa Baptist Church in LaBelle,

Letters to the Editor


Relay: Pride and
gratitude
In taking a moment to reflect
back on the previous Relay for
Life year, saying thank you does
not seem enough for all the hard
work that went into this event.
Our committee chairs put their
hearts into planning; the relentless
training and support we received
from our American Cancer Soci-
ety Staff Partner Valerie Ehrenfeld;
and the amazing teams.
What can I say, without Teams
there is no Relay. This year we
doubled in size and our Team
Captain meetings were always
full and they took this information
back to their Team Members giv-


ing us the BEST RELAY EVER!
After a full year of planning we
get to the big day. Visualize an
empty football field at daybreak.
There is no noise and a hint of
dew still lingers.
Then you hear the noise of
trucks and people as they circle
the track to begin setting up for
Relay for Life.
I love taking a moment to sit
in the bleachers and watch this
unfold. Our campsites were un-
believable.
What talent these people have.
Before long the smell of food has
us all circling the track checking
each other out.
In comes the huge bounce
house, slides, etc. and we are


open for the community. Can you
believe that Fox 4 even showed
up?
Our .survivor walk (the real
reason we were there) is always
a joyous moment but this year
as the teams gathered to cheer;
each one of us is filled with inspi-
ration.
Watching them walk around
that track, their steps light and
their faces glowing we are all
filled with a sense of determina-
tion; we will make a difference!
This was my fifth year working
with Relay for Life.
My heart could not have been
prouder as I watched our Com-
munity come together to help in
the fight against Cancer.


Going on the field that day I
knew that we were very close to
our goal of $55,000.
Throughout the night we ral-
lied together, ate together, en-
joyed great entertainment togeth-
er and endured the bitter cold
- together!
As the sun rose Sunday morn-
ing and eachlof us began to thaw;
we made our final count and
the total amount raised was an-
nounced- $73,359.19.
There is not much else to say,
Well done, LaBelle! Be proud, Be
thankful and be ready for next
year!

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is reminding Florida residents
to keep safety in mind when using
generators this hurricane season.
The. use of generators increas-
es during a disaster but they can
create. additional tragedies if not
used properly. The majority of
carbon monoxide deaths from
generators each year is caused
because people use them indoors
or in garages, balconies, carports
or crawl spaces. Partially enclosed
areas are not safe for generator
use. Carbon monoxide (CO), a
colorless, odorless gas, can leak
into vents and cause illness or
death. Open windows and fans
do not prevent the build up of this
gas.
"Unfortunately, we have
seen people killed because they
thought their garages or balco-
nies were ventilated enough to
prevent poisoning," Bronson said.
"The safety guidelines provided
by manufacturers should always


be consulted before a generator
is used."
Symptoms of carbon monox-
ide poisoning are similar to the
flu. People who feel sick, dizzy or
weak while inside -- but feel bet-
ter when they leave their home
-- should be cautioned that there
might be carbon monoxide pres-
ent and they should get immedi-
ate medical attention.
When purchasing a generator,
consumers need to make sure
they get one that is rated for the
amount of power they will need.
Appliances and equipment usu-
ally have labels indicating power
requirements. The wattage of a
light bulb indicates the power
needed. Consumers should con-
sult an electrician if they cannot
determine the, amount of power
they will need. Generators should
be used only for the minimum
needs of a household in an emer-
gency because fuel supplies may
be limited.
CO poisoning is not the only
danger generators pose if used


which requires health insurance
carriers to provide coverage for
mental illnesses in the same way
they provide for physical health.
"5,000 Friends is proof that
there is power in numbers," said
Valentine. "That is why it is so im-
portant to grow the organization


improperly; generators can elec-
trocute people or start fires.
Follow these safety tips to pro-
tect against poisoning, electrocu-
tion and fires:
-- Never use a generator in-
doors, including in garages, bal-
conies, crawl spaces or other par-
tially enclosed areas.
-- Place the generator outdoors
and away from doors, windows
and vents and put it in a covered.
location.
-- Follow the directions that
came with the unit.
-- Install battery-operated car-
bon monoxide alarms.
-- To avoid electrocution, keep
the generator dry and operate it
on a dry surface under a canopy-
like structure. Dry hands before
touching the unit.
-- Plug appliances directly into
the generator or use a heavy-duty,
outdoor-rated extension cord that
is rated in amps or watts at least
equal to the sum of the connect-
ed appliance loads.
-- Never try to power a house


and continue to offer an avenue
for mental health advocates to
voice their support."

Witch's Brew


By Pudge Lehman
The rule of testing your smoke
alarms at least once a year is a
good one. I, however, don't have
to do that. Nearly every time"'I
cook I manage to set it off. Last
week it was twice in one morn-
ing. I burned my scrambled eggs,
waved my kitchen towel in front
of it to stop the noise and then
burned my toast. It was set for
English muffins and I put thin
rye bread in it. Sara gets anxious

-- Don't overload the generator.
Don't operate more appliances
than the output rating calls for.
-- Turn off all equipment pow-
ered by the generator before shut-
ting down the unit
-- Never store fuel for the gen-
erator in the home, and use prop-
erly labeled safety containers to
store the fuel. Also, do not store
excessive amounts of fuel.
-- Before refueling the unit,
turn it off and let it cool down.
Fuel spilled on hot engine parts
can ignite.
"Generators can be a lifesaver
in an emergency when people
follow safety rules," Bronson said.
"They need to read the instruc-
tions well before a storm or other
disaster is headed their way."

homestead.
If you qualify for portability it
will allow you to carry your cap

the market value of your new
homestead property is .greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty you will be able to carry your
"Save Our Homes" benefit forward

If you are downsizing, mean-
ing the market value of the new
homestead property is less than

By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
People can make a difference
at any age - there is no minimum
or maximum age limit. LaBelle
High Schools students are prov-
ing that by their enthusiastic sup-
port of the school blood drive.
Rhonda Kosh, teacher and
LHS Blood Drive Coordinator, is
clearly proud of the students who
participate in the drive.
Florid Blood Centers' Donor
Development Coordinator John
Messer made the trip out from
Fort Myers to present LHS Princi-
pal Dan Gilbertson with a special
award for its participation in the
high school blood drive.
Mr. Messer pointed out that
drives like the one at LHS are im-
portant because blood donations
save lives "and there's no replace-
ment for that."
He said Principal Dan Gilb-
ertson is very supportive of the
student drive. He added that
he is very proud of the LHS stu-
dents, who are very friendly, well
behaved and courteous as they
come put to share their good

by LHS students this past term.
The award money will be used
for scholarships for students who
gave blood. Some will be used for
a crisis team for students in need;
and some will go to the school's
wellness program.
The program includes infor-
mation on nutrition and exercise.
She said the students really
want to donate. "It's very impor-
tant to them," she said. One of
the students has an uncle who
was diagnosed with cancer and,
she explained, "It gives them a
sense of empowerment."
Students need to be at least
16 years old to donate blood. Six-
teen- and 17-year-olds require pa-
rental permission, of course.
This is a student-driven proj-
ect, Ms. Kosh pointed, out. The
students also circulate a sign up
sheet and generally make sure
each of the four donation events
for the year goes off well.

Lucy's Angels awards Hendry Regional


On Friday, May 2, 2008, Lucy's
Angels for Breast Cancer, Inc.
awarded Hendry Regional Cor-
porate Health with grant funds
of $7,000. Hendry Regional Medi-
cal Center will use the money to
provide free mammograms and
diagnostic procedures to qualify-
ing men and women, who reside

and friends of Lucy Perez who,
at the age of 39, was diagnosed
with breast cancer. Lucy died
of the disease in 2005. All funds
raised are designated specifically
for Hendry and Glades Counties.
If you would like to contribute to

Ask your candidateP
Q: As a commissioner, how ' .
would you reach out to the out-
lying areas in your district? '

A: Whether you live in Felda, Ft.
Denaud or on the county line, ' ..
,you ARE a resident of Hendry -. ," :
County. Just because you live in an outlying area,
does not mean you should be a dumping ground
for undesirable businesses or problems. The peo-
ple of these areas deserve the SAME county serv-
ices as everyone else. As a county commissioner
staying informed through regular meetings and
community involvement is very. important. I
would like an opportunity to represent ALL of dis-
trict 3 and be the voice for those who feel they are
not being heard.

Martha Pierce, Director, and her team of counselors for the
annual summer camp event at Riverside Retreat.


Martha Pierce, Director, and a
team of counselors from all over
Florida are busily preparing for
the annual summer camp event
at Riverside Retreat. They are in
training for outdoor recreation,
learning how to create hoop
houses, play with the large hoops
and generate fun and excitement,
while generating a sense of com-
munity. The theme for this year's
camp is La Frontera, exploring
the boundaries in our lives and
discovering that there is no where
that God will not go to reach us -
even if it means the cross!
Youth in grades 6-12 will come
together July 13 - 19 for a week
of music, recreation, Bible study,
swimming and so much more!
Children in grades 2-5 will en-


joy their week at camp July 20-25.
Like their counselors, these chil-
dren come from all over Florida
and all walks of life.
They enjoy vibrant music by
Joey Nicholson Ministry from
Georgia, home cooked meals
by Gloria Reese, worship skills
taught by church leaders in La-
Belle and the surrounding areas.
Bible study at the retreat will be
lead by college age interns and
counselors.
If you are interested in sending
your child to this camp, just con-
tact Riverside Retreat at 863-675-
0334. There are still a few spaces
available.

Graduacion 2008
El Estadio de La Preparatoria
fue una vez mas el scenario de
la graduaci6n .del 2008 en La-
Belle. Esta vez 264 estudiantes re-
cibieron sus diplomas. Familiares,
maestros, administradores y ami-
gos estuvieron alli para felicitar a

reir, compartir y celebrar el esfu-
erzo de 12 afios de escuela.
Los Valedictorianos Freddy
Martinez y Brittany Baker dieron
las gracias a familiares, maestros
y comunidad en su discurso. Re-
saltaron la importancia de que
creciendo en una comunidad
pequefia donde hay tanta diver-
sidad cultural les ha ensefiado a
ellos una fundaci6n muy fuerte.
Brittany habl6 de los desaffos
que las viejas y nuevas genera-
ciones han enfrentado mientras
que Fredy.compar6 su clase con
el equipo de futbol Americano
de Los Vaqueros que hace cuatro
afios no tenian experiencia. pero
con esfuerzo se han ganado el re-
speto del area, de la misma man-
era muchos compafieros han
sobresalido en las organizaciones
de la escuela.
La que di6 el discurso de ap-
ertura en la ceremonia Mallory
Allen dijo: "Nosotros compro-
bamos que hemos tenido 6xito
y que cambiamos nuestra propia
definici6n de lograr las metas."
