LaBelle firefighters struggled in
vain to save a mobile home late last
month. According to Fire Marshal
David D. Lepper, the fire could not
have been accidental. The sheriff's
report states that an off-duty depu-

a man drove a yellow Honda four-
wheeler up to the home on Lot 102
at LaBelle Woods.
The man was dressed in a cam-

a red gas can with him when he
went to the back of the home. After
a short while, he drove away and

Country Oaks loves science


Country Oaks Elementary School hosted
its first Family Science Night on Friday, March
5. Students were able to rotate through sev-
en different stations and watch two dem-
onstrations that showed discrepant scien-
tific events. They learned about chemical
reactions while making invisible ink, density
while making grapes float and compression
strength using eggs.
Through hands-on activities the children
learned about the scientific process by mak-


ing predictions, hypotheses and drawing
conclusions. Each student had a journal to
record their findings that told them the ratio-
nale behind each event.
The idea came to us from the National
Science Teacher's Association conference
in Ft. Lauderdale that some of our teachers
were fortunate enough to attend. Teachers
and Staff at Country Oaks volunteered their
time to make this event a success.

soon thereafter flames and smoke erupted
from the home.
Officers were later allowed entry to the
home of Jeffery Eric Delacruz, 26, and found
camouflage T-shirt and shorts on the bath-
room floor. A yellow Honda Rancher and
red gas can were also found in the garage.

a confrontation with Andres Pequeno, the

LFD Capt. Richard Mourfield said fire-
fighters responded quickly to the alarm but
flames were already licking out the windows
when they arrived. Using their compressed
air system, which he said knocks down a
fire about ten times quicker than a regular
water hose, they quelched the blaze quickly
but to no avail.
"The damage was already done when
we pulled up," he said. The damage was
confined to just the one home, he added,
but it was a total loss and the owner had no
insurance.

Correction
The photo identification on the third
place SCF float was incorrect. Riding on the
Marvin and Patricia Brown of Moore Haven
float were Clara McPherson, Irene Smith
and Marvin Brown.

Letter to the Editor


Parents important in teen success


How 'bout that
I was watching the news and saw a first.
A Congressman was ripping our senators
and representatives. He was telling them the
country is tired of a system that does nothing
to improve our lives. It seems I've heard that
before but never from an elected official.
Let's see if it does any good.
Our elected officials for some reason
have sold us out. In the '60s jobs were plen-
tiful (good jobs).
Then we started giving big breaks to
companies for shipping our jobs overseas.
They brought the North American Free
Trade Agreement into effect and we have
gone down hill ever since.
Instead of helping Third World countries,
improve themselves. We have lowered our
standards of living to theirs. We must do a
better job of letting our elected officials (at
all levels) know we have had enough con-
cessions.
It's time we got our country back on its
feet. There are foreign cars that get 50+
miles to a gallon of gas. Are our car manu-
facturers able to do this?
Our government gets a good tax on every
gallon of gas sold.


Maybe they don't want to take a 50 per-
cent pay cut. Most cars now get about 20
mpg. That means we could save 50 percent
on our gas.
The oil companies would be next in line
- 50 percent less oil needed. Big money peo-
ple are not helping us get our country back
on its feet. It seems the Almighty Dollar has
become more important than our health,
environment and ability to reach the Ameri-
can dream.
We need to become a better educated
nation. I don't have the answers. But I'm just
an old citified country boy.
If we can build a space station we should
be able to solve our problem here in the
USA.
We the people have to voice our displea-
sure (in a proper way) with our current gov-
ernment policies. We need to be informed
each month on what our elected officials
have accomplished.
If they can't get past the (party) problem,
and get something done, we need to make
sure they know they won't get re-elected.
Well, enough complaining for now. At
least we still have the right to do that.
Ed Kuntz

by Pat Dobbins
The teen years often cause stress for
teens and parents. Parents can't understand
how their well behaved children morphed
into moody teenagers demanding a driver's
license.
It's interesting to
know that teenagers
say that parents are
the most important
influence when it
comes to drugs and
alcohol.
In Hendry County
60 percent of high
school students rank
parents as their #1
source of "believable" Patricia Dobbins
information.
That's why it's so important to talk -and
listen to your teen. Try to connect with
your teen and build a trusting relationship
with them.
Help your teen pursue their interests and
develop their abilities.
Take a walk or go for a drive with your
teen. When there's not much eye contact,
they won't feel like they are under a micro-
scope.
Because a teen's brain isn't completely
mature, they have a terrible time with facial
expressions. (You may feel surprised, but
they may think you're angry.)
Add that to a teen's tendency to act on
impulse, be over-reactive and have limited
emotional control, and you've got a recipe
for major communication problems.
Another fact: Your teen may act up
around you because there's hardly any risk
in it. No matter how horrible your teen may
act, they know that you won't ditch them
(though their friends probably would).
Teens are testing their limits with you be-
cause they feel safe with you. Think of it as
a compliment.
The next time your teen flies off the han-
dle, try using "active listening" to get past
the emotions and on to what's really bug-
ging them.
According to the Web site www.drug-
free.org, it works like this: You listen without
interrupting (no matter what) and then sum
up what you heard for your teen to confirm.
In the end, you get clear information about
their problem and they feel understood.
Once your teen has had their say, you

Our Purpose...
The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent
Newspapers of Florida. Independent is owned by a unique
trust that enables this newspaper to pursue a mission of
journalistic service to the citizens of the community.
Since no dividends are paid, the company is able to thrive
on profit margins below industrystandards. All after-tax

might start with:
It seems like you're feeling...
I hear you say you're feeling...
I wonder if you're feeling...
Am I right that you're feeling...
Then describe the emotions you saw:
It sounds to me like you're feeling hurt
and angry. Is that true?
I hear you saying that you're over-
whelmed. Am I right?
Or, use a figure of speech if that works
better:
It seems like you're at end of your rope.
Is that right?
Are you feeling like that situation is out
of control?
How can you get more involved in your
teen's life? Parental involvement leads to
higher achieving teenagers. Here are some
things that parents can do to develop teen
success.
Talk with your teen, try not to talk "at"
them.
Learn to "really listen" to your teen, and
try not to interrupt them.
Organize family activities and include
your teen in the planning.
Encourage your teen to be involved in
community events.
Attend and actively support your teen's
school activities.
Attend parent-teacher meetings.
Talk with your teen about school and
their activities on a regular basis.
Help them with homework assign-
ments or offer to get them a tutor.
Parental involvement is essential for teen
success. Never give up on your teen. Let
your teens see that you believe in them.
Have open and honest discussions with
your teen.
Don't worry about who's right or wrong
Listen carefully to your teen and their re-
sponses will guide you and help you to con-
nect with them.
Parents when it comes to your teens and
alcohol, tobacco, drugs or any other harm-
ful substance or behavior-- be clear, be firm,
be consistent BE THE WALL!

Increase in local tobacco compliance checks


What is the Division of Alco- Criminal Side:


holic Beverages and Tobacco?
The Florida Division of Alcoholic Bever-
ages and Tobacco (ABT) is responsible for
ensuring compliance by alcohol and tobac-
co manufacturers, distributors, and retail-
ers. In addition to the Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco of the Department
of Business and Professional Regulation, any
law enforcement officer certified under s.
943.10(1), (6), or (8) shall enforce the provi-
sions of this chapter (Law Enforcement Offi-
cer, Corrections Officer, Correctional Proba-
tion Officer.)
A county or municipality may designate
certain of its employees or agents as tobac-
co product enforcement officers. A tobacco
product enforcement officer is authorized to
issue a citation to a person under the age of
18 when, based upon personal investigation,
the officer has reasonable cause to believe
that the person has committed a civil infrac-
tion in violation of s. 386.212 or s. 569.11. (It
is unlawful for any person under 18 years of
age to knowingly possess any tobacco prod-
uct.)


Committing a misdemeanor is punish-
able by taking the person to jail. Normally
the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and
Tobacco (ABT) does not take the person to
jail, but rather issues the person a notice to
appear. This gives them a court date which
they have to follow up with. A misdemeanor
usually entails a little jail time and a fine, but
most of the time those caught selling plead
out and get a reduced sentence.

Business Side:
When a store is caught selling to a minor,
they receive a warning called an "official no-
tice." The Division of Alcoholic Beverages
and Tobacco (ABT) have to get three con-
secutive, positive buys from the same store
in order to file an administrative case against
the beverage license. The penalty guidelines
for an administrative case for a business are
a $500 fine and five day suspension of the
license. If a positive first buy is obtained and
ABT goes back out and the business refuses
the sale the second time, the case is closed
and the process starts all over.


USSC deadline extended


West Palm Beach, FL -The South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) Gov-
erning Board has voted 8-0, with one absten-
tion, to extend the Certificates of Participa-
tion validation deadline contained in the
purchase and sale agreement with the U.S.
Sugar Corporation to acquire 73,000 acres of
land for Everglades restoration.
The Governing Board extended in Para-
graph 4 the contract deadline for the bond
validation from March 31, 2010, to Septem-
ber 30, 2010.
"This Board has a responsibility to con-
tinue the public discussion and review of


this exceptional opportunity for Everglades
restoration," said SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann. "This contract
date extension, brought on only by out-
standing legal challenges to the bond pro-
ceedings, is simply administrative in nature
and allows us to accommodate the Florida
Supreme Court hearing and forthcoming
decision."

ABT works closely with the Tobacco
Free Partnership of Hendry County and pro-
vides information at Partnership meetings
on the results and numbers of tobacco re-
lated surveys conducted in Hendry County.
Since January 2008 ABT has conducted 95
tobacco surveys in Hendry County; 17 as a
result of complaints, three were mandatory
or routine and the remaining 75 were ran-
dom. Of the surveys conducted 16 resulted
in a positive buy meaning the employee, em-
ployer or owner sold tobacco to a minor and
one store received an unsatisfactory survey.
Working with ABT has provided an opportu-
nity for more tobacco surveys to take place
in Hendry County therefore providing the
data to help provide policy to prevent initia-
tion of tobacco use among youth and young
adults. ABT agents are required to conduct
tobacco and alcohol surveys in Hendry and
Glades Counties. With the increase in to-
bacco surveys we have noticed a decrease
in sales to minors. If we continue to show
our tobacco retailers and store owners that
we will not allow our youth to have access
to alcohol or tobacco through an increase in
surveys we will notice that our youth tobac-
co use rates will decrease. Parents, teachers,
and community are the first barrier to help
prevent our youth from starting an addictive
habit. If you know of a store that sales tobac-
co products to minors please contact your
local Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco Law
Enforcement office at (239) 278-7337.

Norovirus or the stomach flu


By Pat Dobbins
Norovirus is commonly called the "stom-
ach flu." (Even though it's not related to any
flu viruses) Noroviruses are found in the
stool or vomit of infected people. Norovirus
is highly contagious and may cause vomiting
and diarrhea and stomach cramps. Symp-
toms usually start within 24 to 48 hours and
most people begin to feel better within one
or two days and have no long-term health
effects.
People can become infected with the vi-
rus in several ways including:
Touching surfaces or objects contami-
nated with the virus, and then placing their
hands in their mouth.
SEating food or drinking liquids that have
been contaminated with the virus (usu-
ally from the food handler not washing their
hands properly)
Having direct contact with another per-
son who is infected and showing symptoms
(caring for someone who is infected, shar-
ing food or eating utensils with someone
who is infected)
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention, norovirus causes 23 mil-
lion illnesses per year. As with many infec-
tions, frequent and thorough hand washing
is the key to preventing the spread of stom-


ach infections like norovirus. This simple
step can help our communities stay healthy.
You can decrease your chance of com-
ing in contact with noroviruses by follow-
ing these preventive steps: Wash hands
frequently, especially after going to the bath-
room, changing diapers, before eating and
prior to preparing food. Carefully wash fruits
and vegetables and cook foods completely
before eating them. Clean and disinfect
contaminated surfaces immediately after
an episode of illness by using bleach-based
household cleaners. Immediately remove
and wash clothing or linens that may be
contaminated with the virus after an episode
of illness (use hot water and soap). Flush or
discard any vomit and/or stool in the toilet
and make sure the surrounding area is kept
clean.
People who have symptoms of vomiting
or diarrhea should not prepare food until
they are completely free of symptoms and
for at least three days after all symptoms are
gone. Any foods that may have been con-
taminated by an ill person should be thrown
away. For additional information, you can
visit www.cdc.gov and look up "Norovirus
Infection" or talk with your healthcare pro-
vider.

your local community, put your business in
front of a targeted demographic, let people
know you are good at what you do and that
you care about your customers and you
want to be found easily. All of this can be


accomplished with the use of social media.

tionships and create new ones.

LaBelle's Traveling Majorette Uniform


Nancy Risher Mott
A series of novels by Ann Breshares, The
Traveling Pants, has become a best seller,
and the first book was made into a movie
in 2005. The novels tell the story of several
young women who acquire a pair of magi-
cal jeans that fit all of them perfectly, even
though they are all different shapes and
sizes. The jeans were passed from friend to
friend enhancing their beauty and helping
them find love and contentment.
LaBelle has its own version of The Trav-
eling Pants in the form of a majorette uni-
form.
In April of 2009 Nancy Mott received a
package in the mail. Tucked inside a small
box was a silver sequined, red velvet uni-
form worn by the LaBelle High School Band
majorettes in the 1960s. A note from Patricia
Lewis Speir was attached to the uniform. Tri-
cia had kept the uniform for fifty years and
was passing it on as a reminder of the good
ole days when a troop of girls wore these
uniforms in concerts and parades the Edi-
son Pageant of Light, Chala Nitka and the
Hendry County Fair.
During the 2010 Old Timers Dinner, the
Traveling Majorette Uniform was passed on
again. Wrapped in tissue and tucked into a
gift bag, Nancy handed it to Sue Moss Schru-
ers, another former majorette of LaBelle
High School. Sue pressed it to her body and
joked about wearing it to the up-coming
1960s Class Reunion.

Nancy Mott, Elinor Jones and Sue Moss Schruers all had memories of their
majorette uniforms.


Later in the evening Elinor Jones arrived
at the dinner and was surprised and pleased
to see the uniform in near pristine condition.
She was the seamstress who handmade all
the uniforms during that time period. Her
handiwork has survived and is still admired
and appreciated.
The majorette uniform, unlike the magi-
cal jeans in the novels, does not fit the wom-
en who wore it years ago. It doesn't make
them beautiful and sexy again none of us

can get into it to find out if it's magic! But
it does bring back happy memories, smiles
and laughter.
We each remember that we once
squeezed into this beautiful little creation
(or one like it) and we looked good! That's
magic enough.
Where will the uniform travel from here?
Nobody knows. If you were a LaBelle High

be next to receive it.

Spirit Week held at LaBelle Middle School


LaBelle Middle School students, faculty
and staff enjoyed a week of celebration
the last week of January to celebrate "LMS
Spirit Week" sponsored by the LMS Future
Business Leaders of America (FBLA). The
theme for the week was "Return to the
'80s" and students and teachers were chal-
lenged to a door-decorating contest. All 5th
period teachers and students were put to
the challenge. There were some very un-
usual scenes on the doors. The winner of
the door decorating contest was Mrs. Park-
er's 6th grade class.
Other activities for the week included
Pajama Day, Rubik's Cube Day, Jersey/Hat
Day, Dress like your favorite 80's Character
Day and Friday was "Spirit Day." Students
participated honorably during each day and
had lots of fun.
On Friday, students were treated to a
"Pep Rally" at the end of the day. LMS band
members serenaded the students as they
entered the gym. Several of the LMS teach-
ers "lip synced" to various 80's songs. Some
of the groups "performing" that day were
Boy George and Guns and Roses. It was
hilarious! Thanks to all the teachers who
participated.
The 2010 Spirit Court made their first
appearance to thunderous applause: Sixth
grade representatives were Mr. Joey Leon
and Miss Elena Madrid; Seventh grade rep-
resentatives were Mr. Flavio Soto and Miss
Ashton Beer. The 8th grade finalists for King
and Queen were: Mr. Eduardo Gonzalez,


buDmittea pnoto
Spirit week King Albar Ramirez and Queen Katie Guerrero are surrounded by
their court.


Miss Katie Guerrero, Mr. Ezequiel Juarez,
Miss Karra Gutierrez, Mr. Jarred Miller, Miss
Rachel Reinbott, Mr. Albar Ramirez, Miss
Katelyn Thorn, Mr. Mark Sloan and Miss
Cassidy Willis.
Friday night was the "Spirit Dance" and
the crowning of the King and Queen. Stu-
dents danced and enjoyed good food and
glow necklaces. Finally the time came for


the coronation. Returning from last year's
court was Miss Tabitha Parker who helped
crown the King and Queen. The enve-
lopes please...King: Mr. Albar Ramirez and
Queen: Miss Katie Guerrero.
FBLA members would like to say thank
you to all who participated in the week's
activities and we look forward to an even
bigger and better Spirit Week next year!

Economic Counicl plans big 'Night on the Town'


by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
New Economic Development Council
Director Roger Harrison and board mem-
ber Emily Bates received the city's blessing
to close Fort Thompson Ave. from Bridge
Street to Main, Tuesday, March 30, from
5-9 for a Night on the Town event. The pro-
gram will run from 6-8 p.m. The event will
include about 18 local vendors who will set
up booths and tables along the street. Local
stores and restaurants will line the street and
the community is invited to check out the
food and other wares they will have avail-
able. The plan includes music provided by
several youth bands.
The city commissioners approved closing
the street for the event and agreed to help
clean up.

Water conservation update
The board heard a presentation by South
Florida Water Management District's Terry
Bengtsson on the Lower West Coast Water
Supply Plan. He said the plan must be up-
dated every five years and is intended to al-
low the district to meet future demands. The
new plan goes up to 2030. By that time the
population of Hendry County is expected to
increase by 44 percent and increase to 1.5
million for the entire district.
LaBelle is continuing its standing one-
day a week only watering regulation and the
county has reinstated it burning ban.

Special exception
for car sales
The board approved a special exception
for B&B Wholesale to allow an independent


used car sales lot at 605 S Bridge Street. The
lot was previously used for the same pur-
pose. The lot will mainly be used for short
time car storage a few hours only and
some minimal car sales.

In other business:
The commercial sign standards ordi-
nance remains unadopted until next month
due to a mix up in numbering.
The board unanimously amended the
city's Land Use Code for business and in-
dustrial zoning.
Fire Chief Ray Pittman reported there
were 65 calls for service last month. The
department has several new brush trucks
and seven Felda firefighters are training. He
also noted that the state will be increasing
firefighter I class standard from 160 hours to
246 hours.
The Hendry-LaBelle Rec Board will han-
dle all contract for the Sports Park on Forrey
Ave.
Grant Misterly of Applied Technology
Management noted that since the city broke
ground on its new nanofiltration system to
improve the existing water plant's output
last month, pipes have been installed and
work is continuing.
As for plans for the new plant, RUS is re-
viewing the latest revision. After that, it will
be forwarded to the national office.
There have been meetings with SFWMD
on the source water for the new water plant.
Mr. Misterly also said that designs for the
new plant are now 60 percent complete.
Superintendent of Public Works Michael
Boyle reported that placement of culverts
along Martin Luther King Blvd.MLK is almost
done and repaving the road itself should


soon begin. The plan is to put in a third lane
using impact fee money already collected.
Water lines are in for the Pollywog Creek
development on Jaycee/Lions Drive and
electricity is being put in now. The develop-
er is paying $35,000 to repave Jaycee/Lions
Drive when construction is complete. If pos-
sible the city will tie that work in with MLK
to reduce costs and may also put in a turn
lane.
Plans are in the works to pave the area
between city hall and the civic center, which
is prone to flooding. The city is looking into
some decorative brick work. Paving is also
planned at the city's new wharf along with
placement of a bench.
The city's April 8 meeting will begin at
5:30 p.m. for EAR amendment discussion
At the behest of the Traffic Safety Team,
the commissions reluctantly voted to take
down an oak on Elm St. that is an obstruc-
tion to traffic. Commissioner Hilda Zimmerly
brought the matter to the board's attention.
To replace the tree, two more will be planted
elsewhere in the city.
The board voted to do an independent


Suit today.


A0~


audit of the city's books. The one-time audit
will not be part of the annual audit. Commis-
sioner Hilda Zimmerly said there has been
no indication of wrongdoing, the board just
wants to get an accounting as an old em-
ployee leaves and a new one comes in.

LMS science students shine at fair


After months of research, experimenta-
tion, class presentations and an outstanding
school science fair, LaBelle Middle School
students walked away from the 2010 Heart-
land Regional School Science and Engineer-
ing Fair, held on Feb. 17 at the Pemayeta
School on the Brighton Indian Reservation,
with numerous awards.
Joanna Flores, Jessica Gonzalez, Thalia
Compean, Hugo Vargas, Dane Mourfield,
Emileigh Eiden, Glen Burton, Danny Keller,
Tania Santiago, Magali Salinas, Victoria Bass,
Yasmin Cortez, Marisol Diaz, Anna Lopez,
Alari Foutch, Courtney Inman, Nicole Rosita
and Michael Vasquez represented the IMS
science department and their teachers, Mr.
David Blake, Mrs. Marti Dayton, Mrs. Tammy
Carter, Mrs. Amanda Hollingsworth and Mrs.
Carol Grigsby, very well as they were hon-
ored with ten ribbons and a special award.
With 278 students, representing fourteen
schools from Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
Hardee and DeSoto counties, our students
found they faced grueling questions from
several highly qualified judges over a period
of about three hours as they vied for top
spots at the awards ceremony.
Taking third place were three students
with projects in the categories of Physics,
Environmental Sciences, and Chemistry.
These ribbons went to eighth grader Nicole
Rosito, with a project entitled "Metals/Tem-
perature/Magnets," seventh grader Yasmin


Cortez with 'To Flush or Not to Flush," and
sixth grader Emileigh Eiden with "The ABC's
ofOJ."
With projects in Engineering and Phys-
ics, second place was awarded to seventh
grader Tania Santiago with the project "Does
the Type of Fruit Affect How Much Power it
Has?", sixth grader Dane Mourfield with
"Where Do You Store Your Popcorn?" and
sixth grader Hugo Vargas with "Batters Up."
Taking first place at the Heartland Region-
al Science Fair was seventh grader Glen Bur-
ton in the Environmental Sciences division,
with a project entitled, "Caloosahatchee
River: How does the Opening and Closing of
the Locks Affect the Quality of Water?" Only
12 middle students were chosen from the
Heartland fair to further compete at the state
level and Glen was one of these. He will now
proudly represent our school and our town
in the Florida State Science Fair, which will
be held on April 7-8, 2010 in Orlando.
In addition to these awards, a special
award was given to a deserving student
entitled the "Harris Future Female Scientist
Award", along with one hundred dollars.
Tania Santiago was honored to accept this
award for her outstanding work with gener-
ating power using the acids from fruit.
Thanks to the dedication and persever-
ance of outstanding teachers and students
alike, LaBelle Broncos once again shone
brightly at the regional science fair.

PK readiness
C.O.E.S. held its first Pre-K Parent Night on Feb. 24. It was a fun and informa-
tive evening. Principal James Sealey and many teachers volunteered their
time to prepare and present three activities to about 35 involved parents.
Parents learned how to engage their preschoolers with colorful, learning cen-
ters. They also received a bag full of goodies and a copy of Chicka Chicka
Boom! Boom!, a favorite book amongst kindergartners. Remember, parent
involvement is critical to a student's success. C.O.E.S. expects to have ad-
ditional Pre-K nights in the near future. Look for notices coming home with
your student.

COE raises the bar for


community service projects


In 2009-2010, the Country Oaks Elemen-
tary School Colts have been busy excelling
at their regular academics as they do each
and every year. However, this year they have
added more community service projects to
their goals for the year.
The Scholars Club is a group of students at
COES who have an A or A/B average, excel-
lent conduct and leadership qualities. They
have worked hard to get all students at COE
involved in community service projects this
year. When the bad economic times made
the holidays difficult for many local families,
the students held a Thanksgiving Canned
Food Drive. When an earthquake rocked
Haiti, the students raised over $200 for relief
efforts. When the Muscular Dystrophy As-
sociation needed schools to support their


Shamrocks for MDA fundraiser, the Scholars
Club signed COES up for the job. They set
their goal at $800, which would send one
child to MDA Summer Camp this year. They
are already at almost $200 and working hard
to meet their goal and make a difference in
someone's life.
The COES community service efforts
continue in more ways than raising money.
The Colts Conserve Club hosted a Science
Night on March 5 at COES. The allowed
COES families to do simple hands-on sci-
ence activities together. Colts Conserve is a
student organization that runs recycling pro-
grams at school and emphasizes science in
and outside of the classroom. Students have
also adopted endangered animals as part of
their conservation efforts.

Wire on LSN
The LaBelle Sports Network is making it
easier than ever for you to get your news or
accomplishments in front of our commu-
nity.
LSN, the Caloosa Belle's free Web site
devoted to youth, recreational and leisure
sports, is now featuring a convenient online
Sports Wire tool in which leagues, organi-
zations, schools and individuals can submit
their news. As with the results and photo-
graphs that are posted on LSN, the material
on the Sports Wire will be sent to the Ca-
loosa Belle Sports Department for possible
inclusion in the print product.
If you are a reader of the Caloosa Belle,
you are familiar with the items that will com-
prise the online Sports Wire. The link will be
a landing spot for what appears in print as
local briefs -information announcing the
formation of teams, tryouts, meetings, reg-
istration dates, reminders, events...anything
you want people to know about.
"Newsworthy Events" are usually photo-
graphs highlighting the achievements of a
team, school or an athlete. Really, though, a
Newsworthy Event can be anything you want
it to be -everything from a stair-climbing
contest to a write-up on a free-throw contest
to a photo of lifelong friends who competed
against each other in a varsity soccer match.
It's our way of saying 'Yes' all the time.
Now, the Sports Department will be col-
lecting that type of information through
LSN. The value of the Sports Wire is longev-
ity. A local brief will be visible on the LSN
site for 21 days, in addition to appearing in
the newspaper at least once. A Newsworthy
Event will appear on LSN for the remainder
of the current sports season as well as, space
permitting, taking its spot in the print prod-
uct. Go to www.newszap.com and click on
your community home page. Once there,
click on "Sports," then, click on the LaBelle
Sports Network icon.
While at the LSN site, click on the "Sports
Wire" tab at the top of the page and access
"Add a new Sports Wire" link. Select either
"Sports Brief" or "Newsworthy Event (Spot-
light)." Input the required information and
click "Submit" when finished. Registration
is required.

Girls Varsity Basketball


Team will miss seniors


The LaBelle High School Girls Basket-
ball season came to an abrupt end with a
second-round, district loss to Bishop Verot at
Dunbar High School.
The Cowgirls ended the season
with a 9-10 record, including big
wins against Clewiston, River-
dale, and Lemon Bay.
This team lost some key
people from the prior year
and replacing their big
numbers was a tough task.
Coach Lutkenhaus was ex-
tremely proud of the way
that our younger girls stepped
up and played varsity, and pro-
vided tremendous support to the
program.
We will lose seniors Jo Wilson, Ada John-
son, and Kailin Cash, but will retain a young
core of players including Junior Brianna Ra-


mos. Sophomore returners will include Ge
nifer Raulerson, Savannah Cheney, and Ire
Castro. Freshmen varsity returners Andr
Lutkenhaus, Mariah Molina, and Pai
Taylor provide a solid return
nucleus. This team will spe
time this spring and summ
improving their skills, a
competing against neig
boring schools. We lo
forward to improving a
providing future exci
ment to the LaBelle Co
munity.
Our team wishes to tha
all supporters, including U-Sal
