LaBelle's Night Out: Getting together


Caloosa Belle/Dale Conyers
Mouth-watering barbecue was the specialty at U-Save's tent with Annette Wallace, Earl Wil-
son and David Childs working the tent Tuesday at the EDC's LaBelle's Night Out. The Hendry
County Economic Development Council's first LaBelle's Night Out attracted 500-600 people
to check out 40 vendors sharing fun, food, information and music. It was a great event that
has sparked a lot of interest in the community. Pleased at the turnout, the EDC is busy con-
sidering an encore performance at some future date.

Guardian
Continued From Page 1
As of last August, Hendry/Glades had
only four GALs. Now there are 16, although
there is a strong need for more in Clewiston
and Moore Haven particularly. Guardians
work in both Hendry and Glades.
There are some 61 cases where a Guard-
ian could be of tremendous help to chil-
dren.
Volunteer Supervisor and Recruiter An-
gela Boykin has been with the program
for three years. She said that Guardians ad
Litem are a growing priority a key stable
force for a child caught up in a court case
they cannot control or possibly even under-
stand.
As supervisor, Angela's main job is to
monitor the program. However, she is
still handling eight cases since there aren't
enough GALs to go around. She is trying
very hard to attract more Guardians so the
program can be more effective and can fo-
cus more on the individual children.
Still, working directly with the children is
the most rewarding part of her job.
Patricia Sims has been a Guardian since
June 2009 and currently has three cases, in-
cluding three sisters ages 9, 11 and 13; an
eight-month old boy; and a 15-year-old girl.
Although still new to the program, Patri-
cia is highly committed. She said her initial
approach to the child is to let them know
she is there for them. Even if the child is re-
luctant to talk, Patricia said they soon find
out they're not alone that nobody's going


Notice of

Public Hearing

The Hendry County Housing
Authority has developed it's Five
Year and 2010 Annual Plan for HUD
and revised it's Section 8
Administrative Plan. The Plans can
be reviewed at the following loca-
tions for review and comment for 45
days starting April 9, 2010:
Clewiston Satellite Office,100 East El
Paso, Clewiston; and the Social
Services Office, 165 South Lee

Hendry county Board of County
Commissioners will hold a public
hearing after 5:00 PM for public
comment and approval at the fol-
lowing location: Hendry County

to hurt them. They are relieved and start to
open up.
Take the case of a particular teenage girl,
Patricia had been warned that this girl was
very difficult and would set up all kinds of
roadblocks for her. Patricia prepared for the
worst, introduced herself and let the girl
know that she was there to help her. Appar-
ently, that was all she needed the girl was
exceptionally polite and opened up. The
two got along very well. The child's reac-
tion may be standoffish at first, Patricia said,
but most kids soon recognize a friendly face
and respond positively to it.
"I catch myself worrying about these
kids," Patricia said. "I'll do this as long as
can as long as can get up. If you want to
help kids, this is the way to do it," she said.
Another Guardian, Yvonne Doll, has
been with the program for several years.
One of her clients was a 15-year-old girl
who was in the program for about a year
and a half. She is not out of the system and
in her grandmother's custody.
This young girl recalls that she was scared
to death of the judge and the legal process.
Once she got Yvonne as her Guardian, she
said she felt safer and it became easier for
this naturally quiet young lady to talk about
her situation.
During their first visit Yvonne explained
that she was there to help her talk things
over. She was interested in knowing about
the young girl's life: what she was doing?
She had been taken from her home, so how
did she like her new home?
She said Yvonne explained to her that
she had nothing to be afraid of the court
was just made up of regular people. Before
long "something clicked" and they got very

close. Yvonne made her feel comfortable.
She even spent hours doing her hair and
dress for Homecoming.
"Without her it would have been hard-
er," the teenager confides, "I would not
have known what to do. I would have froze
in the courtroom." Now, after her case has
been closed, she said she wants to be a GAL
herself some day.
Her grandmother was also glad the judge
recommended a Guardian, saying she soon
saw a big difference in her granddaughter.
There were fewer nightmares, her attitude
improved and "a lot of pain went away."
There were more smiles for the first six
months of her ordeal, there were none, her
grandmother remembers; her grades had
been good before the court situation. Un-
derstandably, then she was failing, but now
she's working back to Bs and Cs and her fu-
ture looks good again. That positive outlook
is a direct result of the Guardian ad Litem's
influence.
A GAL sees things about the child other
people don't see or know things that can
make a big difference in a child's experi-
ence with the court.
The next Guardian ad Litem class in Hen-
dry County is set for June 4, 5, 12 from 8:30-
5:30 p.m. at the Dept. of Children & Families
conference room, 485 Cowboy Way. Sat-
urday classes are held in Fort Myers. If the
idea of providing strength, reassurance and
a hand up to a more positive life appeals to
you, call Angela Boykin at 674-4190.
Being a Guardian isn't a "job" or a "hob-
by." It becomes a part of your life. How
many things do you do that pay off in hugs
from four-year-olds and actual appreciation
in the eyes of a teenager?

Letter to the

Editor

Reload and converse
Now that OBAMA "UNCARE" has
"oozed" it's way into all our lives, and he is
already back on the 2012 campaign trail, I
said to myself, "time out," it's time to "re-
load" and converse.
First in order to deal with life, as my Dear
departed Dad used to say, "Always watch for
what is done, not what is said." So with that
in mind, I want to first establish what "they"
-Congress and the White House "perpetrai-
tors" really are not what "they" say they are.
A story that does this is about a fellow in a
bar hitting on a young lady and offering her
money for companionship. She responds by
saying "What kind of a girl do you think I
am?" and he responds, "We've already es-
tablished that, now we are just haggling over
the PRICE!
In support of this, in real time, is the most
recent obscene outburst from VP. (Very
Pathetic) Joe Biden, actually using the "F"
word in jubilant support of the biggest inter-
coursing of the American citizens and tax-
payers in history.
For those of you still expecting that this
Administration and Congress is not serious
about "transforming" America, you might
be interested to know that plans are in the
offing to change our national emblem from
the Eagle to a prophylactic because it more
accurately reflects their plans and actions for
our welfare, now, and for the future. They
add that a prophylactic allows for inflation,
halts production, controls future genera-
tions, protects the perpetratorsr" and gives
you a sense of security while being violated.

Do you have questions about Easter?


Since the year 325, Easter has been ob-
served on the first Sunday after the full moon
following the vernal equinox (the time when
the sun crosses the equator). Therefore, Eas-
ter always falls between March 22-April 25.
Early Christians observed Easter on the 14th
day of Nisan (April) regardless of what day
of the week it fell on.
But, regardless of when
it is observed, Easter is and
will always be a special
day for every believer. It is
special because it of what
it represents historically, '
biblically, spiritually and
personally.
When you look at the Dr. Les
preaching of the apostles Morgan
you find that the Easter
message was the dominant theme of their
message and witnessing. It was the heart
and soul of what they declared. In Acts 4:33
we read, "And with great power gave the
apostles witness of the resurrection of the
Lord Jesus." It is obvious that to them, the
meaning and message of Easter was spe-
cial.
Not everyone believes the resurrection of
Jesus. There are some "theories" as to what
could have/did happen on that first Easter
morning. These suggestions include ideas
such as the "No Burial Theory," that is, Jesus
wasn't really buried, but was attended to by
others until He recovered physically from the
torture of the crucifixion. However, Matthew
27:63-66 defuses that possibility as there
were Roman soldiers on guard duty at the
tomb. Their assignment was clear -"Guard
that Tomb!" Would these men be given a
posting like this unless there was a body
inside? Hardly. There was great turmoil in
Jerusalem already as a result of the death of
Christ. These soldier could be used in other
positions if, indeed, the tomb was vacant.
Another theory is called the "Stolen Body
Theory." In short this idea suggests some fol-
lowers of Christ came to the grave, overpow-
ered the trained soldiers, took the corpse of
Jesus and disposed of it in another location.
Again, the Bible addresses this possibility as
impossible. In Matthew 28:12-13, we read
where the soldiers were paid to fabricate a
story of having fallen asleep while on duty.
There are two questions one would want to
ask the soldiers; 1) "Do you recall in your
training being warned that to fall asleep
while on guard duty is a capital offense?"

and 2) "If you were asleep, how do you
know who stole the body, or if was stolen at
all for perhaps Christ arose and walked out
on His own?"
The next theory would be the "Halluci-
nation Theory." This hypothesis suggests the
disciples simply were unable to mentally en-
dure the reality that He was really dead. Thus,
because they wanted Him to "be alive" so
badly, they only thought they saw Him alive
on multiple occasions. It wasn't really Him
at all, but rather a hallucination. Their mind
was playing tricks on their emotions!
Certainly, it is a possibility for one to be
overcome emotionally with such devastat-
ing news of Jesus' death, even to the degree
of having dreams and the like. However, I
Corinthians 15:6 tells us that there were
more than five hundred people all at the
come time who saw Christ alive, heard Him
speak to them and was in their midst. Surely
an audience of five hundred individuals see-
ing the same thing simultaneously is beyond
possibility of anything other than reality.
A fourth proposal as to what happened
on the first Easter is the "Swoon Theory."
The idea of this theory is that Jesus didn't
actually die, but He simply "swooned" -that
is, He went unconscious under the excruci-
ating pain of the beatings, the cross and the
entire event on Calvary. Later while in the
tomb He resuscitated. Miraculously, He was
then capable of moving the stone weighing
several tons by Himself and walked out of
the tomb. Also, Jesus, much to the chagrin
of the Roman soldiers, all of whom were
trained in hand-to-hand combat, was able
to knockout the small regiment of military
single handedly! Afterwards, He made a
mad dash into hiding where he lived happily
ever after.
Perhaps the counterpoint found in John
19:33 would help deflate this "Swoon theo-
ry" foolishness. Check it out for yourself.
A final theory of the resurrection that has
been proposed over the centuries is what is


known as the "Spiritual Resurrection The-
ory." This thought suggests Jesus' "body"
didn't rise from the dead, but what arose
was simply His spirit. His physical person
deceased, but not His "inner-man."
If that is so, how is it that Jesus said to
Thomas, "Reach your finger in here, and
look at My hands; and reach your hand
here, and put it into My side. Do not be un-
believing, but believing" (John 20:27.) That
recording simply doesn't make sense other
than the truth that Jesus physically came out
from the grave.
While there are various theories and in-
sinuations about the resurrection of Christ,
there are also some undeniable facts. These
specifics demand an audience of those seek-
ing the truth concerning the world-changing
event of the resurrection. These proofs in-
clude such things as the stone was rolled
away (Luke 24:2),the tomb was empty (Luke
24:3), the Church was formed (Matt 16:18),
there were multiple eyewitness accounts in
the Gospels (I Cor. 15), most of whom paid
with their lives rather than recant what they
experienced. These facts are essential, im-
pressive and cannot be discarded like an old
beer can after a bachelor party.
What about you? Are you convinced?
Are you a believer in the reality that Jesus
conquered the grave exactly as He said He
would and was predicted in the Old Testa-
ment? If not, please explore the statements
in this article. Do your research and then let
me know what you discover at drlkml@ya-
hoo.com.
If you are a believer, be sure to worship
at the church of your choice this Easter Sun-
day. And, why not a friend, or two (or ten!)
with you?
We do serve a Risen Savior! Hallelujah!
Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist
Church in LaBelle, located 200yards behind
Flora & Ella's on Highway 80. He believes in the
Resurrection and preaches it routinely!

FCB helps schools with your old recyclables


LaBelle -Do you have old cell phones
and accessories laying around that you don't
know what to do with? Or is your ink about
to run out on your printer? Do you have an
old pair of eyeglasses from when your pre-
scription last changed? Do you drink a lot of
canned sodas at home or at your office? If
so, Florida Community Bank wants to recycle
your old stuff! Florida Community Bank will
have collection boxes for all of these items
in their lobby and will be collecting through
the month of April in honor of Earth Day.
First, FCB is collecting old cell phones
(with batteries attached) and any accesso-
ries to donate to "Cell Phones for Soldiers."
Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by
teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist
from Morwell, Mass, with $21 of their own
money. Robbie and Brittany have been col-
lecting old cell phones and recycling them.
The cash they receive is used to purchase
prepaid calling cards for our soldiers serv-
ing in the Middle East. Their story is amaz-
ing -you can read more about it at www.
cellphonesforsoldiers.com.
Second, FCB is collecting inkjets, iPods,
laser cartridges, PDA's, cameras, GPS sys-
tems, DVD's and video games for LaBelle


Elementary School. All of these items can
be recycled and the money goes back into
the school system. "Cartridges for Kids" is
behind this program and it not only pays
cash for recyclable items, but it also pro-
tects the environment by keeping these
items out of landfills and helps preserve our
natural resources. "Cartridges for Kids" has
been working with schools and non-profits
since approximately 1999. You can find out
more about the program at www.cartridges-
forkids.com.
Third, FCB is collecting old eyeglasses to
donate to Lions Clubs International. Lions
Recycle for Sight Program helps to con-
serve sight by providing usable eyeglasses
to children and adults throughout the world.
Donated eyeglasses can help millions to ex-
perience corrected vision for the first time,
enabling them to read, attend school, gain
employment and take care of their families.
For more information about the Lions Clubs
and their eyeglass recycling program, you
can log on to www.lionsclubs.org.
And lastly, FCB is collecting tabs from
aluminum cans to donate to the Ronald
McDonald House. As the most well-known
program, the Ronald McDonald House pro-

at nearby hospitals. The Ronald McDonald I '
House Charities, Inc. also has two other core A IIA[I LA V R ]
programs which include Ronald McDonald
Family Room and Ronald McDonald Care
Mobile. Ronald McDonald Houses work
with local recycling centers to raise money
by collecting tabs from aluminum cans. Un-
like the whole can, the tabs are pure high-
quality aluminum and are easier to store.
One pound of tabs is worth 57 cents, and
one gallon of tabs (approx. 4,175 tabs) is
worth $1.49. For more information, log on
to www.rmhc.org/giving and click on Pop

Please look around your house and see
if you have any of these items. Let's do our
part by recycling and, at the same time, we
can help others. Drop these items off at

LaBelle, FL. For more information, call 863-

Pastors return


from Haiti

Pastor Frank Deerey and Youth Pastor
Preston Long were able to go to Haiti with
a group from the Florida Baptist Children
Home on February 20 -27, 2010. There were
17 people in the group and they brought
supplies to the Hope for Haiti Orphanage in
Ouanaminthe, Haiti.
This orphanage was founded by Danita
Estrella in January 1999 and more infor-
mation about this ministry can be found
at (danitaschildren.org). Some of the items
brought to the orphanage were diapers, chil-
dren's medicine, bandages, mosquito nets,
insect repellent, hand sanitizer, shoes and
clothing.
Over 60 the children at the orphanage
have come from the Port au Prince area.
Some of these children are still recovering
from their injuries because of the quake.
The teams' job while at the orphanage was
to help these children feel a part of the or-
phanage and help them adjust to their new
life.
Many of these children came to the or-
phanage scared, hungry and alone. We also
installed shelves so the orphanage could
organize all the clothing they are receiving.
The team also did some minor repairs and
discovered the boy's home needed a new
generator. Our group was able to come up
with enough money to buy them a new gen-
erator.
The experience was an eye opener. There
are great needs in Haiti and at times they
seem overwhelming but there are people
who have made a commitment to Haiti like
Danita Estrella and others.
The Florida Baptist Children's Home is
partnering with orphanages like this one and
others in other countries. If you would like
to help with the Florida Baptist Children's
Home international ministries you could go
to their Web site fbchomes.org and click the
international tab.
Sunday, March 28, Pastor Frank and Pas-
tor Preston shared about their trip to Haiti.
