is just the play to lead up to Halloween. Saturday, Oct. 31, Halloween Night, you're invited to
come in costume (optional but wear your Halloween best). You might win two free tickets
to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol for the best judged costume. Play dates are: Oct.

With space at the local jail at a
premium, officials there have re-
lied on creative ways to house an
overflow of inmates having them
sleep on special beds that would
make cots seem like luxuries, or
planning to add modular units to
These measures to address the
overcrowding inmate population
at the Hendry County Jail in La-
Belle have only solved a portion of
the problem, local leaders say.
More needs to be done, and a
solution must be found in the way
that the court system handles mi-
nor charges. Acting on a proposal
from the administrative office of
the courts, Hendry County is con
sidering the creation of a criminal
case manager position that would
do just that.
The idea is to help alleviate the
ever-growing number of inmates
that, at $39.50 a day, the county
must pay for. In its proposal, the
administrative office of the courts
quotes hard figures: a recent reno-
vation has seen the jail capacity
increase to 196 inmates, while the
facility until recently fluctuated be-
tween 230 to 265 detainees.
The creation of the case manag-
er position would obviate the need
to jail based on minor infractions.
The program would work similarly

to systems already in place in Charlotte,
Collier and Lee counties. There, the crimi-
nal case managers and judges consider the
nature of the offense, employment and ties
to the community, and other variables, in
deciding who would be eligible for pre-trial
Rather than take up additional space in
jail, these people would be released and su-
pervised by the case manager.
Participants would also be required to
check in with the case manager, remain in
the county and receive regular telephone
contacts and reminders of court dates and
Specific cases might require participants
to abstain from the use of alcohol, or have
random drug screens, have no contact with
a victim, have a mental evaluation, or any
other requirement of the court.
Aside from dealing with new cases, the
criminal case manager would work closely
with the state attorney's office in identifying
inmate cases that would qualify for some
type of early resolution.
The full-time person would be respon-
sible for approximately 30 defendants in the
pre-trial program, with new cases added on
as old ones are resolved.
The biggest consideration for the county
is the cost of such a position. With Hen-
dry County actively searching for ways to
streamline its budget, the position would
require the county to provide full funding,
including salary, benefits, office space and
other expenses for the new title.
Altogether, the figure for the criminal
case manager position is $60,000, which
the office of the courts argues can be paid
through fees generated by the additional
court cost fee (which has a balance of
$260,000), court facilities fee, or surplus
funds through the Hendry County Probation
The target date for implementation was
originally January 2010, but it may be later
than that; during the Oct. 13 county meet
ing, the item was tabled for future action.

Two charged in burglary
On Oct. 18, deputies with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office responded to 208
Pine Lane, in Montura after receiving a re-
port of a burglary in progress.
Once deputies arrived they made contact
with two men, 24-year-old Ralph Herbert
Landrum and 21-year-old Ben Milton Wil-
son who were repairing a flat tire on a silver
truck they were driving. Deputies were told
by Landrum that the owner, his stepfather,
had given him permission to be on the prop-
erty. Based on the complaint received from
a witness, deputies contacted the property
owner, William Burkett, who told deputies
that he had not given anyone, including his
stepson, permission to be on his property
nor had he given them permission to re-
move any property.
Deputies walked around the rear of the
home and found the rear window open with
the screen torn off and a green plastic chair
next to the window. Ralph Herbert Landrum
and Ben Milton Wilson were then taken into
custody and placed under arrest.
Deputies found, located inside the silver
truck that was being driven by Landrum and
Wilson, miscellaneous items that had been
removed from the home, to include prescrip-
tion medication that was later returned to its
owner. It was further found that a tire and
rim that the suspects were going to use to
replace their flat tire belonged to a neighbor.
The suspects had taken it from the porch
area of the neighbor's home and it was also
returned to its owner.
Landrum, a convicted felon, and Wilson
were arrested and charged with Criminal
Mischief, Unoccupied Dwelling Unarmed,
Trespassing in a Structure or Conveyance,
Larceny, Synthetic Narcotic Possession and
Drug Possession of a Controlled Substance
without a Prescription.
Landrum is currently being held in the
Hendry County jail on $16,000.00 bond and
Wilson is being held on $11,500.00 bond.
Samuel Martin Cuellar, 19, was arrested
Oct. 18 and charged on a warrant as a Fu

So, what's to be done? First, let me sug-
gest renewed faith as a primary response.
I'm not talking about faith in the government
to solve all our problems they can't, nor
about faith in our own ability to take care of
ourselves that doesn't seem to be working
too well, either.
I'm speaking of faith in God. Before you
dismiss the idea as a waste of time or wish-
ful thinking, you might seriously consider
the possibility that it's the only really worth-
while idea out there.
I'm not going to waste time arguing the
existence or reality of God. He is real: I know
that from experience and so do other peo
I will suggest that if you have steadfastly
shut him out of your life, you might carefully
examine just how satisfied you are with your
life right now. Is everything the way you'd
like it? Or is it in serious need of improve-
ment, and you haven't the foggiest idea of
where to start?
God is the place to start. For one thing,
he doesn't hold grudges about all the stuff
you've done that hasn't turned out right,
that's hurt other people or yourself, or that
you know was just plain wrong.
In addition, it's his intention that you
have a life that is rewarding, satisfying and
purposeful. If you find yourself focused only
on your problems, you might want to find
a way to see past them to what life can be
rather than what it is now.
I'm not talking about showing up at
church for a few Sundays figuring that God
will then owe you something.
I'm suggesting that you have an open
mind, and that you be willing to make a
commitment to faith even before you are
certain of the results.
I promise that you have nothing to lose
and a whole lot to gain. You may even be
surprised at the difference God and his peo
ple can make in your life and how quickly it

Following the conclusion of the last Vol
leyBall game, there was the extremely popu-
lar Girl's PowderPuff football game. The girls
check their manners at the gate and come
in ready to play hard. The action began with
the Freshmen girls taking on the Sophomore
girls. Finally, the Freshman girls got to play in
the game instead of just watching. The final
game of the night featured the Junior girls
and the Senior girls.
Friday will also be a very enjoyable part
of Homecoming Week. During all lunches,
we will have Karaoke, presented by the men
who will DJ the Homecoming Dance. Last
year we did it for the first time and it was
a huge success. A lot of fun was had by all
who attended. At 4 p.m. there will be the an
nual Homecoming Parade down Main Street
and into Barron Park. There will be class
floats, Homecoming Court members, hon-
ored alumnus and a few surprises. Come
and join in the fun! At 7:30 p.m. the an
nual Homecoming football game will begin
against Gateway Charter School. Halftime
will feature the introduction of the Home-
coming Court and the crowning of the King
and Queen. This night is sure to be a very
Homecoming Week concludes with the
Saturday night Homecoming Dance. Stu-
dents will try to transform the LaBelle High
School cafeteria into a special place. This
year's theme is "Night at the Carnival." It is
a semiformal event and tickets went on sale
October 19 for $13, or two tickets for $25.
Tickets will be available at the door the night
of the event, but will cost $20. Students at
LaBelle High School and alumni are wel-
come to attend.
The members of Student Government
have been working hard to make this the
best Homecoming ever with class contests
each day of Homecoming Week. All the
members of the winning class earnrf the
coveted Spirit Trophy. All the students in the
winning class will also receive a special ice
cream reward. One contest will be "Who's
Your Daddy," a trivia contest with pictures of
the fathers of some of the staff members at
LaBelle High School. If you have any ques-
tions about the activities of Homecoming
Week, please contact Mel Greenleaf, Student
Government Sponsor. He can be reached at
LaBelle High School by calling 674-4120. We
want to thank the entire LaBelle community
for their support of the activities of LaBelle

The Mass Communication class at Edi-

Editor of the Caloosa Belle Newspaper, to
a special forum. Eager students prepared a
variety of questions regarding the newspa-

of the student panel, which included Tiffany

ranged from the history of the Caloosa Belle
to its future projects. Ms. Brant did not have
conclusive answers to all questions but of-
fered insight to students with her responses.
Other students from Dr. Nancy Dale's
Speech classes asked questions at the end
of the panel discussion presentation, D. J.

In discussing her background, Ms. Brant
was asked how she got her first job at the

After the event, Nancy Burnette, mass
communications student, hosted refresh-
ments with cookies and sodas to give audi-
ence and students an opportunity to social-
