by Family Health Center.
He joined the LaBelle Kiwanis
where he was a dedicated mem-

items. All of the proceeds from this event go
directly to helping animals in the shelter.
Once again, the humane society used the
gala to recognize some very special animal
lovers. This year Hannah Boone and Haley
Boone were the dual recipients of the Vol-
unteer of the Year Award. The twins spend
many hours at the facility, playing with the
animals a wonderful way to help social-
ize the dogs and cats and to help keep them
emotionally healthy while they wait for the
right family to adopt them. One of the twins
is allergic to cats so she plays with the dogs
and her sister plays with the cats.
Ellen Ferguson received the prestigious
Cornelius "Keis" Huijer Award for Philan-
thropic Efforts for Animals.
Ellen is the humane society secretary, but
her involvement only begins there. Accord-
ing to shelter director Suzanne Bonnell, El-
len single-handedly planned and put on the
Horse Help 101 seminar as a fund raiser for
the shelter this year. She also solicited vol-
unteers and helped with some 80 percent
of the fund raisers and activities the humane
society put on. In addition, Suzanne said El-
len is "always happy, ready to work and full
of information."

Not surprisingly, the shelter is facing
tough financial times. That's why the fund
raisers are so important. The humane soci-
ety doesn't make any money on pet adop-
tions. The facility pays for vaccinations, fecal
checks, worming and, of course, food and
housing for these animals.
From January through Oct. 23 of this
year. Caloosa Humane Society adopted 113
animals out. A few more should find homes
between now and the end of the year. Up
through Oct. 23, the shelter received a total
of 719 animals (including several horses).
In addition 285 animals transferred to no
kill shelters; 494 transferred in from Animal
Control (both Hendry and Glades).
The number of animals euthanized has
declined this year. Ms. Bonnell said that is
because they now require a fee from own-
ers giving up their pet. "It's unfortunate,"
she said, "but necessary." The shelter charg-
es $20 for cats, $40 for dogs. There is a re-
duced charge for litters if the owner has the
mother spayed.
At this time, all the shelter's volunteer
workers are youths, spending time there
after school and on Saturdays. The facility
averages about ten volunteers per month.

Black and white newspaper is one of the
best free deodorizers you will find. Put them
in stinky shoes, plastic containers that de-
velop musty odors or
ball up a few sheets
and put in the bottom
of your garbage can.
If you want to air out
your winter stuff and
hang it on the clothes
line, for the young
whippersnappers that
is a piece of rope or
wire that goes from
one pole to the other, use two hangers with
one facing one way and the other opposite.
This keeps them from blowing off the line.
Reheat leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet
on your stove burner set at med-low heat
until hot. This keeps the bottom crispy.
When you are using store bought, canned
frosting, whip it for a few minutes with your
electric mixer and it will double in size.
The Chamber of Commerce dinner was,
as usual, a success. The food was good, the
decorations were unusual and clever and I
was having a good time until..... I saw an old
friend talking on a cell phone and went over
to give him a hug. He didn't respond and
the attractive woman next to him looked
surprised. After a while, I walked away,
puzzled. A few hours later I saw them at a
nearby table and realized that I had no clue
as to who they were. I WILL wear my glass-
es more ofter ... I swear!

Thanks for participating!

Case manager?
County Administration, Court Adminis-
tration, and Judge Sloan all threw a sales
pitch to the county commissioners for the
case manager position. The commission-
ers that support this position do not have a
clue about what happens at the courthouse
and why the jail is overcrowded. The jail
has 193 bed spaces available and will have
another 96 available in a couple of months.
That means we will have 289 beds available
for under 200 inmates. Sheriff Whidden has
been giving "notice to appears" on misde-
meanor charges until the courts can get their
house in order (old stacked up cases). The

problem with Court Administration is, they
do not realize that they're the problem. Suc-
cess to them is measured by the amount of
money that they throw away, not the prog-
ress they make. Number one, the case man-
ager makes recommendations to the judge
on criminal misdemeanor and felony cases
that they feel would qualify for release. The
case manager will have no authority to ar-
rest and supervise these defendants, the
case manager can only attempt to monitor
them by telephone. The sheriff's office will
be sent out to baby sit and bring them back
to jail for any violations (we will need more
deputies). Secondly, the case manager will
have no authority or ability to speed up the
state's attorney or public defender's office to
resolve cases, it just will not happen. It's fun-
ny that Court Administration just happened
to find $260,000.00 from our court cost fee
to throw away on this program, while the
current county employees struggle with no
raises and possible lay-offs.
So, if you don't get a warm and fuzzy feel-
ing about this proposed program,,,,just call
your Commissioners.

Praise for march
After reading negative, name-calling
comments in the Letters to the Editor (in the
Naples Daily News) concerning the 912 Tax
marchers written by individuals that were
not there, it appears many people get their
opinion from the televised news media. As
someone that actually attended this march,
I was aware that the mainstream television
and cable news stations were biased but
was naive as to the extent until I watched
their coverage.
The media reported 70,000 marchers.
The estimates are up to 1 million according
to numerous sources. By noon all the trains
were shut down due to over capacity and all
roads leading into D.C. were at a standstill.
And they kept coming.
Contradictory to the media, I observed
the following: All races attended with blacks
in leadership positions as speakers and en-
The majority of ages marching were in
their 20's through 50's.
Every state was represented from Maine
to California. The majority that I spoke with

Do you know: What is Red Ribbon Week?

Red Ribbon Week began after the kid-
napping, torture and brutal murder of Drug
Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agent
Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985. Agent
Camarena had been working undercover in
Guadalajara, Mexico, for over four years. His
efforts led to a tip that resulted in the discov-
ery of a multimillion dollar narcotics manu-
facturing operation in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The successful eradication of this and other
drug production operations angered leaders
of several drug cartels who sought revenge.
As a result, they murdered key informants
and then, on February 7, 1985, they kid-
napped Agent Camarena and his pilot Cap-
tain Alfredo Zavala-Avelar (taken separately
on the same day).
It is believed that Special Agent Camare-
na's death actually occurred two days later,
but his body was not discovered until March
5, 1985. He was 37 years old and was sur-
vived by his wife, Mika and their three chil-
dren, Enrique, Daniel and Erik. During his 11
years with DEA, Kiki received two Sustained
Superior Performance Awards, a Special
Achievement Award and, posthumously, the

Administrator's Award of Honor, the highest
award granted by DEA.
Shortly after Kiki's death, Congressman
Duncan Hunter, and high school friend Hen-
ry Lozano launched Camarena Clubs in Ki-
ki's hometown of Calexico, California. Hun-
dreds of club members including Calexico
High School teacher David Dhillon wore red
ribbons and pledged to lead drug-free lives
to honor the sacrifices made by Kiki Cama-
rena and others on behalf of all Americans.
Red Ribbon Week eventually gained mo-
mentum throughout California and later the
United States. In 1985, club members pre-
sented the "Camarena Club Proclamation"
to then First Lady Nancy Reagan, bringing it
national attention. The campaign was then
formalized in 1988 with President and Mrs.
Reagan serving as honorary chairpersons.
Today, the eight-day celebration is spon-
sored by the National Family Partnership
(previously known as the Federation of Par-
ents for Drug Free Youth), and has become

To be or not to be 'NOBEL?'
With all of the controversy circulating
around the Globe on Obama's being award-
ed The Nobel Peace prize, I thought a few
words from my deceased Grandfather might
have relevance, including that Shakespear-
ean quote, "To be or not to be "NOBEL? and
the issue that prompted Grandpa's words
was the U. S. getting out of Viet Nam.
Grandpa's comments involved a story
about an old Cherokee Indian Chief advising
his grandson about the battle that goes on
inside every human being.
He advised the grandson that there is a
battle between two wolves going on inside
of each of us. One is Evil and is angry, envi-
ous, jealous, sorrowful, regrettable, greedy,
arrogant, self-piteous, guilt-ridden, resentful,
untruthful, false pride, narcissistic, egocen-
tric, and audacious. The other is Good, joyful,
peaceful, loving, empathetic, sympathetic,
hopeful, serene, humble, kind, benevolent,
generous, charitable, truthful, compassion-
ate, loyal, and faithful.
The grandson listened carefully but after
a moment questioned as to which of the
wolves wins out in the battles of life? After
a moment of thoughtful concern, the Chief
simply answered that it is "The one you
Now you can agree or disagree, but it is
quite evident that a "Wolf" is alive and rav-
enously "feeding" in the White House. Is it
Wolf one or Wolf two? And how long do we
have before he huffs and puffs and blows
our country down?

The LaBelle Cowboys got their first taste
of victory Oct. 23. It was Homecoming, and
a district game against Gateway Charter. The
Cowboys walked away with a whopping
42-6 win under their belt.
"It was a good one!" an overjoyed Coach
Hal Bennett said. "We played very, very
He added that the Cowboys minimized
mistakes and played a complete game. Pos-
sibly most important, his boys gained confi-
dence as a result of the win. It was the most
important ingredient that they lacked, he
Coach Bennett still sees
"big things ahead of us"
and expects to finish the
season strong. ---
As a team, the Cowboys
racked up 458 total yards
on the night their best
showing of the season. Of
those yards, 350 of them
were on the ground. "We
ran the ball well," coach Chris
noted. Garcia

The Cowboy offensive line and receivers
all blocked well, Coach Bennett said. They
blocked the right people and stayed on their
blocks. Defensively the Cowboys held Gate-
way to just 150 yards total.
Everybody was on game
for this one.
"The kids deserved this
one," Coach Bennett said,
"They have for a while."
The Cowboys have had
several very close ones.
"This win is truly a cred-
it to their preparedness and Jordan
hard work on the practice Phillips
field," he added.
Offensive Players of the Week soph-
omore quarterback Jordan Phillips had a
"whale of a night," coach said. He carried
the ball 12 times for 148 yards rushing; com-
pleted 8 of 9 passes for 102 yards, had 3
touchdowns and no interceptions.
He shares the award with junior running
back Chris Garcia. Garcia
had seven carries for 67
yards rushing; 3 rushing
touchdowns and three re-
ceptions; 37 yards receiv- ,
ing and caught one touch- r
Defensive Player of
the Week senior lineman
Armando Ayala had ten Armando
tackles, two of them for Ayala

losses and forced a fumble.
Special Teams Player of the Week
- senior place kicker Robert Facundo was
six for six on extra points. The coach also
credited him with good
kick offs. He said the team ,
found a weak link in the -...
Gateway returned and Rob-
ert kicked the ball right to .
him all night.
Practice Player of the
Week Justin Walker can
be counted on to help out
each week, coach said. Robert
He's a first year player and Facundo
gets more play time week-
ly. "He jumps in every time," Coach Bennett
The Cowboys are preparing for Friday
night's district game against their county

rival Clewiston Tigers. Coach Bennett com-
mented that it's been a strange year in dis-
trict play. He noted that Clewiston is strug-
gling. The perpetual powerhouse is having
a 2-5 season so far. Both
LaBelle and Clewiston re-
cently lost to Lake Placid in
district play.
Still, Coach Bennett said
the Cowboys will have
their hands full against
their cross-county rival.
The Tigers have talent and
are well coached. Justin
The Cowboys are com- Walker
ing off a big win. Both
teams will have to refocus. Coach Bennett
sees these two teams as evenly matched and
expects a "dog fight" for the Hendry County

Getting a jump on Relay for Life
The Tolar family is in its third year supporting the Relay for Life. Debbie Tolar
said they participate because "It's the best way to save lives." As the mother
of a cancer victim, Debbie said it's emotional but a "sweet, good feeling"
and she loves to get the youth involved. A mock Relay for Life attracted in-
terested folks to the Sports Park Oct. 6 where they could learn what it's all
about. For the real Relay the Tolars will set up a "Mash" unit and hope to have
hospital bed races and even an appearance from "Hot Lips Hoolihan." She
said it takes bravery and a lot of character to face cancer. Their "Mash" unit
includes from left: Marie and Cory, Tony and Debbie Tolar, Jana Smith and
Brittany Deras. If you would like to have a team at the Relay for Life, please
contact Yvette Williams at 675-0136 or Laura Watkins at 239-707-8305. their
goal is to have 25 teams this year. Nine teams have already signed up.

Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is an annual ministry sponsored by Samaritan's
Purse, a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization engaged in
crisis relief and community development. Founded in 1970 and active around
the world, Samaritan's Purse offers aid to the victims of war, poverty, natural
disasters, disease and famine in response to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
The organization is based in Boone, NC, and is headed by Franklin Graham, the
son of evangelist Billy Graham. Shoeboxes are decorated and filled with age/
gender appropriate items and taken to a church for blessings and transported
to a "drop off" point for shipping to their final destinations. These local ladies
are working to make this ministry a success in our community. If you would like
to be a part of this project and donate small items such as toys, toothbrushes,
toothpaste, small children's books, etc. please bring them to the Salon Mer-
cedes, 70 Yeomans Avenue. They are also in need of monetary donations for
postage ($7 per shoebox). Share your blessings and make a child smile.
