Thursday, November 1, 2012 50¢ Plus tax V ol. 89 No. 44 by Patty BrantCaloosa Belle The road to Rodina has been a long one, but Hendry County Commissioners took the next step at their October 23 meeting, unanimously voting to transmit the Rodina Sector Plan amendment to the state land planning agency for review. Associate Planner Sarah Catala presented an overview of the overlay to the board. She said that Rodina is planned as a 25,826-acre development in Western Hendry County. The large scale comprehensive plan amendment will redesignate the property from agriculture to the Rodina Community Overlay. The plan has already been adopted after the Department of Community Affairs (now the Department of Economic Opportunity) raised compliance issues and objections by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida were addressed. Rodina is envisioned with a balance of agriculture and natural resources, employment centers, town centers and villages along with a transportation system and support utilities. The sector plan passes long range plans for the development to local authorities. She said the broad scale of the county’s long term transportation in Western Hendry County north, south, east and west network will ensure alignment. Recreational areas will be released in timing with easements. Transmittal was approved, 5-0; the second phase will be adoption of the sector plan.Water storageC43 Reservoir Phil Flood of the South Florida Water Management District brie y explained the Rodina development plan moving forward Submitted photo/ Jerri Lynn MerrittHail, King and Queen!The 2012 Homecoming King and Queen are Derek Bass and Kayla Keller.

Property AppraiserRepublican Kristina Kulpa held this of ce 16 years and said she computerized the of ce during that time, unveiling a user friendly Web site and a streamlined staff. She said she returned $2 million to the county during her tenure and saved $50,000 through computer updates. She said fair taxes promote jobs. She said Hendry residents are being overtaxed now because of Mr. Pelletier's assessments. Incumbent Democrat Phillip Peletier said citizens voted to make a change four y ears ago and exhorted them to "keep that change." He said he has looked at abandoned foreclosures etc. with Homestead Exemptions and put $8 million of value on tax role during the last four years. He said he did away with per diem travel expenses in his of ce and is saving money by picking up ve vehicles from the sheriff's of ce. Tax CollectorTax Collector candidate Republican Tom Corbitt is a retired Air Force colonel. He said if elected he would look for ways to improve ef ciency and outreach; eliminate nonpayment of taxes and seek feedback from the community. He noted a number of properties on the tax deed sale, and businesses w ith tangible personal property at risk. Incumbent Democrat Peggy Hampton has served as Tax Collector for 28 years and maintained perfect audits for many of them. She noted that many residents pay deliquent taxes before the certi cate sale. Her of ce must follow state statutes with regard to any and all late tax payments.Superintent of SchoolsRepublican Paul Puletti is in his third term as mayor of LaBelle. He said that as Superintendent of Schools he would be accountable and ensure quality in every classroom; employ quality teachers. He added that he works well with the school board. A nother priority would be to challenge students to do their best. Incumbent Rick Murphy has served for 14 years on the school board. He said he w ants more AP classes, has added leadership school and springboard classes from LMS to LHS along with summer internships for students. Next year there will be full time v oluntary pre-K and he wants to nd money for career programs. Mr. Puletti stated that Mr. Murphy was taking credit for programs instituted by others mainly by the state. He commented that Hendry County is 63rd of 67 counties on FCAT standings and added, "Hendry is better than that." Mr, Murphy said he wants to increase employee salaries and decrease taxes while improving reading scores. Supervisor of Elections Republican Kevin Drummond said Constitutional of cers need to be held accountable for any discrepancies. He said he wants to increase voter education and participation. He said the of ce needs better Web site accessability. Democratic candidate Brenda Hoots has 21 years experience at the Supervisor of Elections Of ce and is currently Assistant Supervisor. She countered that the of ce has consistently followed the law and the process. She said she's been thoroughly exposed to all aspects of the of ce duties and has the experience and skill to be supervisor. She looks forward to improving voter participation. Non partisan candidate Rose Raulerson Mason has 25 years in public management and banking and wants to work on increasing student interest in voting at the schools. For Ms. Mason, increasing voter registrations and educating adults as well as youngsters would be her priority.County Commission District 3Democratic candidate Don Davis served as a county commissioner for 14 years. He pointed out that two Hendry County races were about special interests and he's "ready to shake it up! He said he doesn't like negataive campaigning; that he was a good commissioner and will be again. He said the county used the one cent sales tax to build the new jail after a referendum for ten years in 1987, but the commission kept the sales tax. The county did not hold to the deal, he pointed out and said he would be responsive to the people. Republican incumbent Tris Chapman has had a successful career in the citrus industry and has been on the county commission since 2008. He noted that he's always voted to lower taxes and accused Mr. Davis of a "tax and spend agenda." He noted that economic development will improve school performance and added that he's backed health care, four laning SR 80, expanding Airglades Airport and cooperation beteen business and government. Mr. Chapman said the county commission is in the process of correcting old wrongs and sold the USDA building in clewiston for $120,000 after neglecting to collect rent for 39 years.Clerk of CourtsRepublican candidate Larry Wilcoxson said his main goal was to be a watchdog of county nances. He noted Hendry's high unemployment and that it is the most taxed county in Florida while being economically depressed. He blamed the situation on poor leadership. Mr. Wilcoxson said he would like to lower Constitutional of cer salaries. He said anyone could check his gures by going to: FloridaTaxWatch.org. Incumbent Barbara Butler, Democrat, has updated the Clerk's Of ce software and decreased its budget by 30 percent. She said their new Web site is hendryclerk.org. She also noted that the Clerk has no control over unemployment or taxes.SheriffRepublican candidate Sheriff Mark Chamberlain said he has been exposed to all phases of law enforcement at Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce as head of the jail.

He said recent lake water releases to the estuary along with rainfall have increased the water going into the estuary via the Caloosahatchee River. The plan is to "hold" water at the site, allowing it to percolate through the ground. SFWN would like to be able to temporarily store water at the site by the next rainy season. He said the area's porous sand makes it hard to store water. Using test cells at the C43 Reservoir, some will evaporate, and some will seep through the ground, but the site will hold most of the water it receives.

Minimum Wage Changeby Matt KindermannThe Florida minimum wage will increase to $7.79 per hour effective on January 1, 2013, for non-tipped employees, and to $4.77 per hour for tipped employees. This is the third increase in minimum wage for the state in ve years where it has increased a total of 54 cents since 2010, denoting a slightly higher cost of goods for the hourly wage earner. The federal minimum wage has not changed since 2009, and remains constant at $7.25 per hour, although the Florida legislature passed a minimum wage law in 2005 which requires all employers within the state to pay the higher of the two wages. Minimum wage posters are required to be hung in an obvious location at the worksite and can be downloaded and printed from www. oridajobs.org under the Business Growth and Partnerships for Employers tab. Minimum wage is calculated based off the national Consumer Price Index (CPI). CPI refers to an average cost of a range of goods and services. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) factors in the cost of common food items such as hamburger and cheese, along with the price of energy and rent in different urban areas to form separate "baskets" that represent major urban areas. Then they average each basket against each other until they come up with a single cost of a similar basket for the entire country. A simple example for CPI might be a gift basket that has some chocolate, a bottle of wine and some crackers. The change in the price for that basket from year to year could be equivalent to the change in CPI. For more information on CPI, visit www. bls.gov/cpi. Don't forget to download a copy of the new minimum wage poster and if an employer uses an out of state payroll agency, ensure that they are aware of the change for proper compliance.

In 1802, Thomas Jefferson received a letter from a church in Danbury, CT. The congregation asked the composer of the US Constitution if America would ever undo her stated position of never allowing the Government to a run the local church. This was the practice in England and the results were less that favorable. Jefferson, ever the elder statesmen, replied by letter, assuring the people freedom would always be granted to any person to worship as he or she wished to. It was in his response that Jefferson rst used the now oft-quoted phrase, "separation of Church and State." That phrase was basically dormant until the late 1940s when a researcher read the letter originally sent to the Danbury congregation. Regretfully, "separation of Church and State" has been used to communicate the opposite of what our third president was attempting to convey to the congregation in Connecticut. Today, when people hear that phrase they most often assume it to mean it is unlawful to discuss, mention or address anything in a religious overtone in public settings like schools, political gatherings or the like. However, for those who are aware of our heritage as Americans, we know that as people we are free to express and live out our convictions and personal beliefs. Moreover, the America citizen who follows their faith nds it is instructive to them in all of their relationships, careers and every aspect of their lives, including how the believer should cast his or her ballot. So, why should we cordon off politics from our faith? Consider the biblical personalities who were not only believers in God but also involved in the political arena of their day. Moses was reared in politics having lived in Pharaoh's palace for 40 years. Joseph in the Old Testament was eventually promoted to what we could today refer as "Prime Minister" of Egypt. Elijah interfaced, though not in a friendly way, with King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. David, who reigned 3,000 years ago, remains the best known king in all of Israel's history. Solomon likewise advanced the Jewish nation during reigning for 40 years. Daniel served in three different administrations under as many different kings. John the Baptist was responsible for shaking up the family of King Herod as recorded in the Gospels. Peter and other apostles made their impact on the culture of their day as they spoke boldly for the things of God in the Book of Acts. Paul personally addressed King Agrippa concerning the elements of the Christian faith and its transforming message. From the Biblical pattern noted the believer should refrain from shying away from the issue of "separation of Church and State" and all Christians should vote their principles and personal convictions. How should a Christian vote? First, we should vote with clarity in our convictions. Do not simply vote for what we think is best for people in the church, but rather as a citizen with an overall view o f United States. This type of voting isn't an effort to legislate Christianity. That didn't wor k for Constantine, or during the Crusades. And it won't work today. Jeremiah 29:7 says, "Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." Second, vote with peace. Have we lost all civility during election season? Everything you read on social media and the news is so polemical and divisive. Honestly, one cannot even buy a cup of coffee without being told who to vote for. Between all the smear campaigns and negative ads, we have lost the ability to have conversations with respect and humility. On Facebook thousands of people have been "unfriended" because of what is posted on their home page. As Christians, we should remind ourselves to be peaceable and respectful. Third, vote with knowledge. You should know where each candidate stands on a myriad of issues. To be uninformed is to be swayed by negative ads. You need to evaluate the things you hear in debates and ads with facts. Fourth, vote with others in mind. Proverbs 31:8-9 exhorts people to "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Spea k up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." Clearly the believer should cast his or her vote for the bene t of others. This includes, but is not limited to, being an advocate for the unborn, those in poverty, or those at war. The call is not to think just o f yourself, or to vote for the best tax break, or even the best health plan, but to ask ho w will your decision bene t the largest number of people. James 1:27 reminds us that, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep onesel f from being polluted by the world." Next, vote with prayer. Either President Obama or Governor Romney will be the leader of our country. And regardless of ho w you feel about them, the believer is called to pray for them. Review with this challenge from 1 Timothy 2:1-3 "I urge, then, rst o f all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyonefor kings and all those in authority, that we ma y live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior. Lastly, vote with hope. Don't place your hope in any one person. Ultimately, whoever wins will not deliver on every promise. Rather, vote with hope. Remember, we believe in a God who is sovereign. With that assurance, we rest assured that God is in control. Dr. Les Morgan is pastor of Caloosa Baptist Church in LaBelle. The church is across the street from City Hall on Highway 80. The Christian and the Vote Matt Kindermann Les Morgan

In the early 1930s Alle Feiman, his wife A nna and son Bruce, still known as “Bud” to his family, moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to North LaBelle in hopes of setting up a farm cooperative. They were joined by Alle’s sister Ruth Feiman Kanief who had been living in New York City with her daughter and son-in-law. Alle and his sister were J ewish immigrants from the Ukraine when it w as still part of the Russian Empire. Ruth’s grandson Mark Watkins contacted LaBelle Heritage Museum for possible information on his family’s LaBelle venture. W atkins did know his family were neighbors and friends with the Matusiak family but could not tell LaBelle Heritage Museum’s J oe Thomas more than that. Thomas was not able to nd any references to Alle Feiman or his sister Ruth Kanief living in this area in the 1935 Florida State Census and guesses these intrepid Jewish settlers were here for less than ve years. Jeff Lazar came across the July-August edition of The Jewish Georgian on a recent trip that featured an article about some 2,000,000 Jews emigrating from Eastern Europe to the U S between 1881 and 1914. There was a short paragraph about Alle Feiman and his family coming to LaBelle in the 1930s. Lazar clipped the article and brought it to LaBelle Heritage Museum without any knowledge that Mark Watkins had contacted the museum for information about his grandmother and grand uncle coming here in the early 1930s. The Feiman family and some unidenti ed people are shown in the attached photograph that appears to show the entrance of Lou Jacobs North LaBelle Heights in the background. LaBelle Heritage Museum would like to be able to give Mark Watkins and his cousin “Bud” Feiman more information about their family’s adventures in LaBelle. Joe Thomas asks anyone with either personal knowledge of Jewish settlers in LaBelle in the early 1930s or who remembers older family members talking about Alle and Anna Feiman and their son Bud or Alle’s sister Ruth Kanief to contact the museum at (863) 674-0034.

by Pudge LehmanI just read a neat gift idea for parents or grandparents celebrating an anniversary. Make a scrapbook of childhood memories or “Don’t tell mom/dad stuff you got away with. Of course, this could be heart attack material so be careful. Also include a section on “Do you remember when?” By the time they have lived a long life they pretty much have everything they need so this will be treasured. I remember the time my kids told me about the “Great chocolate chip cookie dough incident.” They had made the dough but by the time it came to bake them they had eaten so much raw dough that they were sick so before I got home they had buried the small bit of left over evidence in the yard. They avoided my wrath by waiting 25 years to tell. When you travel pack an inexpensive night light to nd your way to the bathroom. I stress inexpensive because you will most likely forget it when leaving. October seems to be lice season in the public schools. Just read where mayonaise will kill the little suckers. Don’t know if this is true but sounds like an inexpensive thing to try. Our crazy English language: Sweatmeats are candy and sweetbreads are meat and not sweet at all. English muf ns weren’t invented in England or French fries in France. There is no egg in eggplant, no ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

HAPPENINGSat the LaBelles #1 Restaurant 7 Caloosa Belle November 1, 2012 Getting started toward collegeIn a competitive college and career market, the junior year is the best time to start the college search process. There is a broad range of colleges and selection criteria for students to research. There are certain tasks a student must complete during their junior y ear, or before, in order to be on track for a great college experience: 1. Schedule an SAT or ACT exam: Early in the junior year is the time to get that rst A CT or SAT test out of the way. Doing it early w ill keep the pressure off and will let your student know where he or she stands and if further exams or test preparation is needed. In fact, LHS Counselors highly recommend that students take the ACT/SAT at the end of their sophomore year. ACT/SAT Scores are used for speci c scholarship programs determined in the fall of a student’s junior y ear. 2. Keep grades up: As a high school junior, time is running out for your student to bump up his or her GPA. Since college application season is typically in the fall of senior year, junior year is often the last chance to get that GPA up for college admissions and scholarships. 3. Compile a college list: Junior year is the time for exploring a wide range of college options, considering various locations, costs, sizes, and offered majors. Visit collegeboard.com, act.org, and facts.org to begin researching colleges and careers. To help parents track their junior and senior’s academic progress, Counselors mailed letters, academic histories, and grades for any senior and junior with D or below grades. Keep in mind, the partnership between the parent and school is critical. Please take advantage of the numerous resources offered by LaBelle High School to track your student’s progress. Parents can access their student’s grades through http:// gradebook.hendry-schools.org/pinnacle/ piv, a parent password and login must be obtained through the LHS Guidance Department. Also, all events and upcoming events are posted on the LHS website at http:// www.hendry-schools.org/education/school/ school.php?sectionid=3&. LHS Counselors Corner Pat Johnson has nished transferring all the VHS tapes of the 2001/2002 Oral History Interviews that had been stored at LaBelle City Hall; however, there appear to be some “missing” interviews.

Dear Friends and Neighbors, For 16 years I was humbled and proud to be your Property Appraiser. I tried every day to be professional, honest and above all, fair. I hope that you know that I always served you, the residents of Hendry County, with my best effort and best intenti ons. When I lost my bid for re-election in one of the closest races in Florida’s history, some thought I should accept the results without question – I chose to ght. For myself, for those who voted for me and for the rule of law. My opponent would have you believe that ghting is the moral equivalent of complaining – I beg to differ. The election in 2008 came down to FIVE votes – less than of one percent of the vote – so I challenged the results. In an election that close, Florida law even requires an automatic re-count. I fought to make sure the election was fair and that all votes were counted properly. I’m proud to have fought for those principles just like I was proud to ght to keep taxes fair and low for you and your family. I ultimately lost the election, but more importantly, I feel I lost your support and trust. The loss of the election, I can handle. But, the loss of your trust was painful. To those who remain angry that I challenged the election, I understand your frustration – legal challenges in the heat of a political season are not easy for anyone. To those supporters of my opponent who have made this an issue in this campaign, I realize that no explanation on my part will change your mind or your vote – I get that – but it is important that you understand my true motives. You see, I am a ghter. I ght for what I believe in. And I don’t quit easily. We need that spirit back in the Property Appraiser’s Of ce. I’m seeking re-election not vindication. Just like you, I see how the poor economy has affected Hendry County. I want to help. I want to make this a better community, with more of our neighbors working and providing for their families. To get there, we must have fair taxes for our residents and more jobs for our community – it’s as simple as that. This election is about who will ght for YOU and YOUR FAMILY now. today this minute. My name is Kristina Kulpa and I will ght for FAIR TAXES and MORE JOBS – for you, for your family and for our community. I humbly ask for your understanding and your vote – Kristina Kulpa for Property Appraiser. Sincerely,Kristina KulpaPolitical advertisement paid for and approved by Kristina A.

Outgoing President Maureen Jordan offered thanks to the chamber’s dedicated volunteers, including Pudge Lehman, Margie and Ron Stevens, Paula Main, Allison Creed, Mary Bartoshuk and Debra Strickland.

It’s the one opportunity every year w here local South Florida kids get to experience North Pole conditions. If you’d like to be a “Snow Fairy” contact Sara at the chamber, 675-0125. Commenting for the Curtis family as the Curtis Honey House was named Business of the Year, Rene Pratt said, “After all these y ears we’re still down on the same corner! W e appreciate this!” The Harold Curtis Honey Company was nominated for the honor for its continuing support of all things LaBelle. It is owned by Harold and Nancy Curtis and managed by Rene Curtis Pratt. The Curtis family has been in the honeybee business in LaBelle since 1954. Harold’s father, George, came to LaBelle to start their business here. With the right weather and a lot of different oral sources, it was the perfect place for a bee business. In 1982 George Curtis retired and divided the business in half. He gave each son half of the business. Harold named his business Harold Curtis Honey Company and his brother, Elliott, took the name of Elliott Curtis and Sons. They have honeybees located from Clewiston to Sanibel Island to Immokalee and Naples. In years past they have been as far as Boca Grande. They make honey from orange blossoms, palmettos, sea grapes, mangroves and all kinds of wild owers. The wild ower honey is most commonly used as local honey because it picks up so many different pollens. In the store you can come by and see bees at work, taste the different kinds of honey in the area and see where they extract and bottle honey. They have all kinds of products from honey to beeswax candles to salad dressing and honey baskets made by Rene. You can nd local products by other local businessmen and women in LaBelle, such as Everglades Seasoning.. Gator Hammock and more. The Curtis family likes to help our community by selling other people’s products as well as their own. The new Citizen of the Year Sheriff Steve Whidden was lost for words at the announcement and was barely able to comment on his career, saying, “I just love doing it.” Outgoing director Kim Hamilton received a plaque in recognition of her important contributions to the chamber. For the 201213 year, the chamber installed Phillip Pelletier as a new director as well as continuing directors Bryan Beer, Maureen Jordan, Judy Reinbott, Lamar Youmans and Patty Brant. Chamber Director and event Emcee Lamar Youmans announced that the chamber was proud to present ve vocational scholarship this past year. Keynote speaker Dallas Townsend discussed a very important topic that becomes more important every year in Florida water. His historical account of water’s part in the making of Florida, particularly in this area, had the stamp of his personal recollection or of that of his close family. He discussed the devastating Hurricanes of 1926 and ‘28 and recounted how the Caloosahatchee River regularly ooded in this area, especially after it was connected to Lake Okeechobee, up until the ‘50s. He said the last ood in LaBelle occurred in 1953. He reminded everyone that “The good old days are right now, in spite of the recession.” He talked a little about LaBelle’s early schools and sports and that its early history as a cattle county. He talked about the open range, the importance of branding cattle and early dangers to the cattle industry.

Just before school started Publix Super Markets conducted the annual drive for "School Tools for Cool Kids," supplies to help students enter the school year with the tools they need to be successful. The school supplies many of us take for granted paper, pencils, pens, crayons, rulers are the very tools that can make a difference in the education of a child. The bags of school supplies collected by Publix were delivered to and stored at the Harry Chapin Food Bank warehouse in Fort Myers. United Way and Publix volunteers sorted the supplies into large bins that were then delivered by Harry Chapin trucks to the Hendry County Schools warehouse, the Glades County School District of ce, Hendry-Glades Behavioral Health Center and the St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. Glades County School District Director of Administrative Services Scott Bass accepted the supplies for Glades County students, along with Jenny Allen of Glades County Community Development. Hannah Pelle, United Way Director of Allocations and Community Planning said, "Publix Super Markets is an extraordinary example of a company that puts high value on giving back to the community.

by Jordan OdafferAfter a bye week, on senior night, on the Monday before Homecoming the Cowboys came out and made up their game with Gatew ay Charter School that was rescheduled due to lightning. After Ellis Johnson opened up the scoring with an 18 yd touchdown run, but the Point After Touchdown attempt w as no good leaving the Cowboys up 6-0. The defense led by Caleb Rimes stopped the Grif ns on their next possession, but the offense was forced to punt back to the Grif ns. Derek Bass and Danny Robinson led the next charge for the Cowboys defense who again forced the Grif ns off the eld. On the following possession Danny Robinson had 21 y ards and scored his rst touchdown of the season. On the next series Kip Stansly and J erome Baxter helped stale mate the Grif ns and got the ball back to the offense. On their next possession the Cowboys scored on a 22 y ard run by Danny Robinson and Jorge Betancourt's placement made the score 19-0. The next series saw Luis Hernandez, David A ndrade, and Baxter make plays before Ellis J ohnson intercepted a pass on the last play of the half and returned it 62 yards, but was stopped before he could score. However, Johnson used that momentum to return the opening kick 80 yards for a touchdown on a reverse and Betancourt's placement moved the score to Cowboys 26 Grif ns 0. On the next series Danny Robinson led the defense and Ellis Johnson booked another interception to make his third of the season. Following the change of possession Ellis had 2 carries for 35 yards and a touchdown making the score 32-0. On the following defensive series Even Vasquez, Derek Bass, and Devante Ray wreaked havoc on the Grif ns offense and the Cowboys got off the eld when Eduardo Gonzalez intercepted a pass and returned it deep into Grif n territory setting up a 31 yard touchdown pass from Tyler O'Ferrell to Derek Bass. After Betancourt's extra point the Cowboys led 39-0. The Cowboy defense then forced another Grif n fumble and recovered it inside the Grif ns ve to set up Jason Gener's 3 yard touchdown run. Betancourt added another point after touchdown and the Cowboys extended their lead to 46-0 which led to a mandatory running clock. As the Cowboy's defense returned to the eld David Andrade continued his stellar play and helped force a punt, but after a mishandled snap Derek Bass recovered a fumble and Betancourt closed out the scoring for the Cowboys after he added an extra point his fth of the game.JV Cowboys run away from Red Devils 29-0.Sterling Casseus opened up the scoring for the Cowboys on a 67 yard run and put the Cowboys ahead 6-0. Both defenses settled in and the score remained 6-0 until Hugo Vargus connected with Julian Jaramillo on a 15 yard pass to put the Cowboys ahead 12-0 when Vargus connected on a two point conversion to make the score 14-0. The Cowboys defense continued to play tough as they forced the Red Devils to continually turn the ball over. The Cowboys extended their lead when Glen Burton received a pass from Hugo Vargus and took it 20 yards to score another Cowboy Touchdown. Following the score Hugo Vargus connected with Jake Martinez to extend the lead to 22-0. To close out the scoring Luke Story recovered a fumble in the end zone and Pedro Dimas connected on an extra point to close the game out in the Cowboys favor 29-0. Some defensive standouts were Angle Vasquez who had an interception and Hector Rodriguez who recovered a fumble. The JV Cowboys nished the season 2-6 and got better each week.
