Coming together to fight cancer BOCC

Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
Off and running against cancer
The LaBelle Relay for Life event is officially rolling, after the kick off Saturday, Oct. 23, at
the LaBelle Sports Park. Committees are meeting, teams are being formed and folks all
around LaBelle are getting excited about this annual rally against cancer. The rally garners
cash to help find cures and to provide services for those fighting personal battles against
the disease. It helps fund American Cancer Society programs. This overnight event takes
place April 16-17, 2011, at the LaBelle High
School football field. From the opening cere-
mony, through hours of fun, food and walking
for a cure, through the Luminaria ceremony to
the closing ceremony, the entire 18 hours is a
concentrated battle cry against this disease.

With the acceptance of Air-
glades Airport in the preliminary
application to the Airport Privati-
zation Pilot Program (APPP), the
Hendry County Board of County
Commissioners are considering
their next step.
One of the original five recipi-
ents has backed out, leaving Air-
glades as one of four still in the
The county has been working
with a company called Florida
Fresh Cargo to convert Airglades
into an international point of com-
merce, bringing in farm products,
flowers and the like.
During discussion at Tuesday
night's regular commission meet-
ing, Commissioner Kevin McCa-
rthy felt it would be unnecessarily
time consuming to search for other
companies interested in operating
the airport.
Commissioner Karson Turner
took the opposite approach, saying
the county does not know enough
about Florida Fresh Cargo's "ability
to pull this off." He felt the county
needs a vetting process for this
venture. This a very large deal, he
said, and the county needs to look
at it from A to Z. "Generations to
come will benefit from this. We
need to make sure it's done right,"
he added.
Commissioner McCarthy felt the
Request For Proposals (RFP) pro-
cess would not gain anything. All
the same information will be avail-

able anyway as the regular process goes on.
Since the county must do due diligence any-
way, an RFP would just delay everything.
Commissioner Darrell Harris said that
Florida Fresh Cargo was the first to "jump
in" but that "our hands are not tied."
Commissioner Tris Chapman noted
that Hendry is the sixth most economically
stressed county in the nation and the only
Florida county in the top 20. "This is a rare
opportunity to create jobs and increase the
tax base," he said, "so time is of the es-
He added that the county would not have
this opportunity without Florida Fresh Car-
go. "We need to do due diligence and we
will do that. This is a moment in time. There
is no further time to spend. It's a wonderful
opportunity to move forward post haste."
Commissioner McCarthy's motion to skip
the RFP and to negotiate with Florida Fresh
Cargo as potential operator of Airglades
passed 4-1, with Commissioner Turner the
lone dissenter.
In addition, Commissioner McCarthy
suggested a Town Hall Meeting be set ten-
tatively for Monday, Nov. 8, at the John Boy
Auditorium in Clewiston to explain more to
the public.
A Hendry County delegation visited FAA
headquarters in Washington, DC, October
18, where they received formal notifica-
tion of the Federal Aviation Administration's
(FAA) acceptance of the preliminary appli-
cation for Airglades Airport in the Airport
Privatization Pilot Program (APPP).
According to a recent press release, this
puts Airglades in a position to become a
new economic and capacity contributor to

the nation's aviation system. The original
five airports accepted were: Chicago's Mid-
way Airport, Louis Armstrong International
Airport in New Orleans, Puerto Rico's Luis
Munoz Marin International Airport, and
Briscoe Field in Gwinnett County, Georgia.
A general aviation reliever airport, Air-
glades is located seven miles west of Clewis-
ton. It's strategic location along US 27 and
SR 80 is a major factor making Airglades at-
tractive as a transport center.
Commissioner McCarthy will not sit on
the BOCC much longer. He decided not to
seek reelection on the Nov. 2 ballot.
"As I wrap up eight years serving the citi-
zens of Hendry County, I am proud to know
that Airglades has a tremendous future
ahead of it," said Hendry County Commis-
sioner Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy was the
commissioner representative to the delega-
tion visiting FAA's headquarters. "Not only
does this enhance aeronautical capacity for
the region, but it also represents a significant
step forward in the development potential
of AirGlades as an economic driver," said an
enthusiastic McCarthy.
Roger Harrison, President and CEO of
the HCEDC, emphasized how important
teamwork has been during the prelimi-
nary application exploration process. "This
concept is larger than any single agency or
organization, and there is no way we could
have gotten where we are today without a
tremendous spirit of cooperation. Success-
ful team efforts such as this only foster more
success," said Harrison. Speaking about
Airglades, he added: "It's hard to deny how
perfectly situated this airport is. Central to
eight major seaports, located on U.S. High-
way 27 and State Road 80, and within a
short drive of eight million Floridians, we
see the development of Airglades as a viable
long-term positive contributor to our strug-
gling economy."

saw the Hendry County Jail.
This was a non-custodial, voluntary in-
terview that was recorded surreptitiously
by Agent Walker and she had not been read
her Miranda rights.
Defense Attorney Amira Fox had sought
to disallow statements Ms. Sibbald-English
made during that interview in which she
stated that every two weeks over 33 months
she cashed checks written to the canteen
account. She said she used the money to
assist her with her two grandchildren and
Judge Greider explained her decision
to deny the motion to suppress, saying Ms.
Sibbald-English had voluntarily responded
to a card and phone call from Agent Walker
and during the interview she was repeatedly
reminded that she could leave.
The defense claim that her confession
was induced by the promise of benefit
to her was also denied by the judge, who
reasoned that Agent Walker was gathering
information only. She found no basis for
the claim in the transcript and tape of the
interview. The judge also cited Ms. Sibbald-
English's signed statement in which she
wrote that she was making the statement
"voluntarily" as cause for not supporting the

defense motion.
Previously, Judge Greider denied a plea
bargain agreed upon by the defense and
prosecution. She ruled that, due to her po-
sition of trust over inmate funds, Ms. Sib-
bald-English should face a minimum of 48
months in the Department of Corrections if
she is convicted.

Thanks to lots of folks like Linda McGee, friend of Tyler Davidson's family,
the 11-month-old is now home again after a drowning accident. In addition
to fundraisers, the baby was remembered in many prayers from friends and
strangers alike. Linda is pictured patronizing the Nuttin Fancy Cafe during its
fund raiser for the family. She is being served by owner Tina Sassaman and
young Zachary Tanner. The cafe collected over $2,000 for the family. The Log
Cabin also graciously put on a fundraiser breakfast for the family.

Watch out for gators
How would you like to meet up with a monster like this 12-foot alligator? The
creatures may be getting ready to hibernate for the winter, but they're still
out there and they're dangerous, according to licensed gator trapper Dennis
Perkins. He snagged this one south of LaBelle and cautions residents to be
careful around waters they are not familiar with. And don't forget about your
pets. Gators love pets, too! Dennis said he harvests 200-300 nuisance ga-
tors per year. Pictured are: Tim Perkins agent, Randy Perkins helper, and

Letters to the Editor

Pretrial release
I'm against this program, most of the
time when government gets involved it's a
boondoggle at best. How did they arrive at
$60,000 salary that is probably in the top 5-7
% of what Hendry County residence make
both regular and elected, but this one posi-
tion was worth that much?
Was it filed by a Hendry County resident?
It seems that the problem worked itself out
due to Sheriff Whidden's release program
(Whidden was against this program from
the start), the newly finished addition to the
jail facility as well as Judge Greider's work
So the position was never needed had
the 3 above issues happened sooner. The
$60,000 plus perks could be well spent else-
where. Why not let the Sheriff take care of
his business and if Judge Greider stays in
Hendry County all should be well in the fu-

Our government needs to step back

Class size reduction

and Amendment 8

The Florida Association of District School
Superintendents and Florida School Boards
Association support class size reduction
which was implemented in 2002 by the
Florida voters. However, the existing consti-
tutional caps on class size afford superinten-
dents and principals little to no flexibility in
implementing an educational program that
will benefit all students. The Florida Consti-
tution currently limits the maximum number
of students assigned to each teacher in pub-
lic school classrooms in the following grade
groupings. Pre-K thru 3rd grade a maximum
18 students; grades 4 -8, 22 students; and
for grades 9 -12, 25 students. If enrollment
exceeds these numbers by one student the
District is out of compliance. Therefore the
District is required to hire additional teach-
ers or transfer students to another class-
room, school or be fined. In middle and high
schools the current amendment limits stu-
dent's access to core, advanced placement
and honor classes which have a capacity of
25 students. Therefore some students will
not have the opportunity to take these cours-
es because of the limit of 25 students.
Under Amendment 8, the current lim-
its on the maximum number of students
assigned to each teacher in public school
classrooms would become limits on the
average number of students assigned to
each teacher, by specified grade groupings,
in each public school. Amendment 8 also
adopts new limits on the maximum number
of students assigned to each teacher in an in-
dividual classroom as follows: for pre-k -3rd
grade a maximum 21 students; for grades
4 -8, 27 students; and for grades 9 -12, 30
Amendment 8 specifies that class size
limits do not apply to virtual classes, requires
the Legislature to provide sufficient funds to
maintain the average number of students
required by this amendment, and schedules
these revisions to take effect upon approval
by the electors of this state and to operate
retroactively to the beginning of the 2010-11
school year.
Amendment 8 would allow a school to
be over the average in one class provided
that excess is balanced by another class at

The Caloosa Belle is published by Independent

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

that school with fewer students than the al-
lowable average. This would save millions
of dollars and give individual schools a mea-
sure of flexibility not present in the current
The Hendry County School District has
made some tough decisions to address
budget shortfalls in the last two years. Since
the 2006-07 school year the District has lost
six million dollars in revenue. The District
has continued to decline in enrollment and
funding. The additional costs come at a time
with decreasing revenue and declining en-
rollment trends. In order to comply with the
current class size requirement this year the
District had to hire additional teachers, pur-
chase portable classrooms and involuntarily
transfer 50 elementary students from their
original school to other schools. The mov-
ing of students is very disruptive to students
and their educational process.
Amendment 8 allows superintendents
and principals to use common sense while
still maintaining low class sizes, flexibility
and more specialized instruction to those
students who need it most. The proposed
constitutional Amendment 8 is not a repeal
of Florida's class size provision, but simply
a way to make it manageable, cost-effective
and family-friendly.
The Florida Association of District School
Superintendents, Florida School Board's As-
sociation, Florida Chamber of Commerce,
Governor Charlie Crist, Alex Sink, Rick
Scott, Jeb Bush and many others support
Amendment 8, which provides flexibility for
our students' needs. For more information

If you are like me, you probably get
emails from time to time
that have political reports,
updates on who said what,
and who is dating who,
etc... Occasionally I get lit-
tle "ditty's" that are humor-
ous along with goofy jokes
and other non-essentials to -
Recently, however, I re-
ceived an email that "rang Les Morgan
my bell." It is from a school
administrator that, from what I could tell,
had had enough. I find it interesting that a
high school principal can see the problem,
when so much of our society cannot.
The following is a statement that was
read over the PA system in October of 2000,
at the football game at Roane County High
School, Kingston, Tennessee, by school Prin-
cipal Jody McLeod.
"It has always been the custom at Roane
County High School football games, to say
a prayer and play the National Anthem, to
honor God and Country." Due to a recent
ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that
saying a prayer is a violation of Federal Case
As I understand the law at this time, I can
use this public facility to approve of sexual

perversion and call it "an alternate life style,"
and if someone is offended, that's OK.
I can use it to condone sexual promiscu-
ity, by dispensing condoms and calling it,
"safe sex." If someone is offended, that's
I can even use this public facility to pres-
ent the merits of killing an unborn baby as a
"viable! means of birth control." If someone
is offended, no problem...
I can designate a school day as "Earth
Day" and involve students in activities to
worship religiously and praise the goddess
"Mother Earth" and call it "ecology.."
I can use literature, videos and presenta-
tions in the classroom that depicts people
with strong, traditional Christian convictions
as "simple minded" and "ignorant" and call
it "enlightenment."
However, if anyone uses this facility to
honor GOD and to ask HIM to bless this
event with safety and good sportsmanship,
then Federal Case Law is violated.
This appears to be inconsistent at best,
and at worst, diabolical. Apparently, we are
to be tolerant of everything and anyone, ex-
cept GOD and HIS Commandments.
Nevertheless, as a school principal, I
frequently ask staff and students to abide
by rules with which they do not necessar-
ily agree. For me to do otherwise would be
inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocriti-

The Witch's Brew

By Pudge Lehman
I came across
a few old time
remedies for a few
of my old time
ills. For constipa-
tion: swallow two
tumble bugs, one
head first and one
tail first.
Put nine wood lice
in a walnut shell
and bury under a flat stone on the night of
a full moon.
To save electricity, when the dishwasher
gets to the dry cycle just turn it off and prop
the door open, drain any puddles that form
on dishes.

Instead of throwing that old belt away,
cut it off, punch a few holes and recycle it
for the dog.
When you decide to paint slip a plastic
shopping bag over the paint tray. When done
just slide the bag off. A lot less clean-up.
There is a conspiracy against the elder-
ly. They think we won't notice but rise up
people and fight against this abomination.
Clothing manufacturers are in on it too.
They have suddenly started labeling a size
10 or 12 as 18 or 20. Do they think we won't
notice? Another thing, everyone drives so
fast these days! You're risking life and limb if
you pull onto the freeway.
All I can say, is their brakes must wear out
awfully fast, the way I see them screech and
swerve in my rear view mirror.

I suffer from that affliction enough unin-
tentionally. I certainly do not need to add an
intentional transgression.
For this reason, I shall "Render unto Cae-
sar that which is Caesar's," and refrain from
praying at this time."
However, if you feel inspired to honor,
praise and thank GOD and ask HIM, in the
name of JESUS, to Bless this event, please
feel free to do so.. As far as I know, that's not
against the law----yet."
The response was stunning. One by one,
the people in the stands bowed their heads,
held hands with one another and began to
pray. They prayed in the stands. They prayed
in the team huddles. They prayed at the
concession stand and they prayed in the An-
nouncer's Box!
The only place they didn't pray was in
the Supreme Court of the United States of
America the Seat of "Justice" in the "one
nation, under GOD."
Somehow, Kingston, Tennessee, remem-
bered what so many have forgotten. We are
given the Freedom OF Religion, not the Free-
dom FROM Religion.
Praise GOD that HIS remnant remains!
We will be voting next week throughout
our land. If ever there is a time for the Godly
people to stand up and be counted for their
God-honoring convictions and for righteous-
ness sake, it is now!
The freedom He has granted to us in this
amazing country is unlike any that has ever
been known in the history of human-kind.
Additionally, the gift of liberty that has been

than to get off of the couch, out the door and

Keep kids safe on Halloween, Sunday, October 31

While the streets will come alive with
scores of little ghosts and goblins, super
heroes and princesses in search of goodies
Sheriff Steve Whidden would like to offer
some safety tips for parents to ensure a fun
time is had by all this Halloween.

Parents and Caregivers
Purchase or make costumes that are
light colored and clearly visible to motorists
Decorate (and get the kids to help!)
or trim costumes, "goody bags," and other
containers with reflective tape that will glow
in the beam of a car's headlights
Reflective tape can be purchased at bi-
cycle, hardware, and sporting goods stores.
Make sure costumes are short enough
so they don't cause children to trip or fall
Children should wear well-fitting, stur-
dy shoes
Accessorize with flexible props, such
as rubber swords or knives. Inflexible props
can cause serious injury if a child should
Apply face paint or cosmetics directly
to the face, and make sure it is non-toxic.
A loosing fitting mask can obstruct a child's
vision. If a mask is worn, be certain it fits
securely. Masks should not impair a child's
hearing or field of vision. If necessary, en-
large ear and eye holes. Tie hats, and scarves
securely to prevent them from slipping over
the child's eyes.

Pets get frightened on Halloween. Put
them up to protect them from cars or inad-

If you use candles, place the pumpkins
well away from where trick-or-treaters will
be walking or standing. Battery powered
jack-o'-lantern candles are preferable to a
real flame.
Make sure paper or cloth yard decora-

may forget to "stop, look, and listen" before
they cross the street.

How to decorate for
Christmas Boat Parade
What's this? You don't think Christmas
Boat Parades are your 'cup of tea'? Well, if
it's just because you really aren't sure how
to go about HOW to decorate your boat, we
have just the thing! was kind enough to post how-
to directions on decorating your boat to the
full extent and to the benefit of our beautiful
1. Make a decorating plan for your boat.
Decide if there is enough room for a Christ-
mas tree; make sure it doesn't block the cap-
tain's view so he can safely navigate. Decide
if you can use plug in Christmas lights or if
you need battery operated lights. Decide on
the type of decorations you want to use. For
instance, it may be a themed Christmas boat
parade requiring special decorations. Keep
in mind that the decorations need to be vis-
ible from the shore. Small decorations are
difficult to see.
2. Buy only decorations and Christmas
lights that are rated for outdoor use. If you
are using battery-operated lights, make
sure you have plenty of batteries on hand.
Be sure to check each string of lights before
you hang them. Remember that both sides
of the boat will be seen if you are making a
circle during the Christmas boat parade. The
Christmas tree or Santa Claus on a sleigh
should be placed high on the boat and in
the center, where it can be seen from both
3. Use rope lights whenever possible on
your boat. Rope lights are easier to string
and won't get caught on netting or small
items. Use bright colored or white lights be-
cause the lights will be the background for
the rest of your decorations. People watch-
ing the boat parade are usually far away and
can only see decorations that are brightly lit.
4. Decorate with two or three color com-
binations only. If you use too many colors,

the whole boat will become a blur to the
spectators because of the reflection on the
water. Place a few more strings of lights
to outline the shape of your boat, and the
whole decorating scheme will become clear
to those viewing the Christmas boat parade.
And have fun!

Cowboys celebrate first win of the season!

by Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The Cowboys got their first win of the
season last week against Gateway Charter
School, with a lopsided 27-8 victory.
"It feels very, very good. We needed this
one," Head Coach Hal Bennett said of the
matchup. "I think the coaches and kids feel
like the monkey is off our back."
Although the Cowboys have struggled all
season, Coach Bennett has not wavered in
the confidence he has in his team.
He said he believes this win will help the
Cowboys focus better and that will carry
through the rest of the season.
"The kids are happy," he said adding,
They made a good showing both offensively
and defensively."
It was a victory well deserved, he said.
Defensively, Coach Bennett said the Cow-
boys allowed just one big pass play.
"We had them buffaloed and they're

a tricky team to stop." He pointed out that
Gateway was using sets rarely seen.
Itwas a challenge to recognize their plays,
then execute a defense against many of their
plays. The Cowboys re-
acted and adjusted well to
Gateway's new tactics.
The Cowboys forced
four turnovers and shut
down their "odd" offense.
Coach Bennett said that
was a testament to his as-
sistant coaches. "I tip my
hat to them," he said. Juan Cantu
Offensively, LaBelle had
a couple long drives. Senior
running back Chris Garcia turned in 15 car-
ries for 153 yards rushing and scored twice.
Center Josey Scannell blocked and
opened holes all night. He'd done a good
job all year, coach said, despite injuries.
Last week LaBelle added more size in the

guessing because they're tough and very
good, coach said.

Hendry County bus drivers were recognized last week during National School
Bus Safety Week.

School bus drivers recognized

October 18-22 was National School Bus
Safety Week. The week is set aside each year
to remind motorists to obey traffic laws and
to keep students safe. It is also a time when
we recognize the excellent work done by
our local school bus drivers and mechanics
for the excellent jobs they do.
Hendry County has 69 buses and trans-
ports 4,568 students to and from school
each day. Sixty-eight percent of our total stu-
dent body rides the bus to school. Our buses
travel over 5,000 miles per day and around
1.2 million miles each year.
All of our drivers complete a rigorous
training and licensure process before they
can drive a bus and must also complete and
annual eight hour update and physical ex-
amination. This helps make our buses one
of the safest forms of ground transportation.
School buses are more than eight times saf-
er per vehicle mile than smaller passenger
vehicles. Each school bus must also meet
very specific requirements and safety stan-
dards. Each bus must be inspected at least
every 30 days by a state-certified inspector
to ensure the mechanical and safety systems
are in proper working order.
To ensure the safety of our students all
school bus drivers must:
Possess a Commercial Driver License

with a Passenger and School Bus endorse-
Pass a criminal background check by
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
and the FBI.
Pass pre-employment and random
drug and alcohol screening.
Pass an annual medical examination
using federal standards to ensure fitness to
Pass annual dexterity testing to deter-
mine ability to perform required duties.
Pass a periodic driver's license review.
Successfully complete a 40 hour Bus
Driver Training program.
Superintendent Richard A. "Rick" Murphy
and the Hendry County School Board are
very proud of the District's excellent safety
record regarding student transportation. All
of the employees in the Transportation oper-
ations show great care when it comes to the
safety and well being of our students. Meloni
Timgreen and Albert Williams in Clewiston
and Jeannie Lynch and Jeff Perry in LaBelle
and their staff do a superb job of transport-
ing our most precious cargo. We currently
have 81 licensed drivers. This includes regu-
lar drivers, substitutes and extracurricular
drivers. If you see a driver thank them for the
excellent job they do.

Homecoming Week at LHS rapidly approaching!

Homecoming Week begins on Monday,
Nov. 1, and ends with our annual Homecom-
ing Dance on Saturday, Nov. 6. Each day at
LHS will be special, with theme days, trivia
contests and nighttime events. Monday is Pa-
jama Day. Wear your favorite, but school ap-
propriate, bedtime apparel. Slippers are fine
but let's leave the pillows at home! Tuesday
we take a trip back in time for History Day.
Do you have a favorite historical figure or
time period? Dress like Abe Lincoln or bring
back flower power with your best 1960s at-
tire. We're feeling groovy already.
Wednesday is the always popular Sport's
Day. Wear your favorite team's clothing
and support your favorite team. Rivalries
will be front and center today! Thursday is
Mis-Matched Day. Clothes don't
problem today! Just wear what you have
within the School Dress Code.
Friday is traditionally Spirit Day and time
to show vour Cowbov Dride. Proudlv wear

have a lot more planned for Homecoming
Week. Thursday is a big sports day as the
annual Boy's Volleyball and Girl's Powder-
Puff football games are played. Bragging
rights for the entire year are at stake in these
events. Beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the LHS
gym, the Freshman boys take on the Sopho-
more boys. Who's the best team? The boys
must win two out of three games to prove
who is best. Come and find out for yourself
for the low price of a $1 admission fee.
Be sure to stick around for the second
set of games as the Senior boys take on the
Junior boys. Starting time is approximately
5:15. These young men have met for the
last two years, and this is the last chance for
the Seniors. Who are the big dogs and who
should have stayed on the porch? You are
guaranteed at least four fun-filled games and
maybe six.
Following the conclusion of the last Vol-
levBall game. there is the extremely Ponular

The action begins with the Freshmen girls
taking on the Sophomore girls. Finally the
class of 2014 girls gets to play in the games
for the first time ever, instead of just watch-
ing from the stands. Are they too much for
the Sophomores? You can find out for an-
other small admission fee of $1. The final
game of the night features the Junior girls
and the Senior girls. How hungry for victory
are the Seniors in their last game? Are the Ju-
nior girls ready? Vendors will be selling hot
dogs, drinks and much more. Fun and food
for the whole family!
Friday will also be a very enjoyable part
of Homecoming Week. During all lunches,
we will have Karaoke. Time to quit singing
in the shower and show everyone what you
can do! This is a third year we have been
providing this entertainment for the students
and it is always a lot of fun. At 4:00 there will
be the annual Homecoming Parade down
Main Street and into Barron Park. There will

of the Homecoming Court and the crowning
of the King and Queen. This is sure to be a
very special night.

Ron Dunbar 2010 LHS Alumnus of the Year These locally-owned small businesses
appreciate your support!

The Student Government at LaBelle High
School is pleased to announce our 2010
Honored Alumnus, Ron Dunbar. Ron is a
1977 graduate of LaBelle High School. After
graduation, Ron attended Minot State Uni-
versity in Minot, North Dakota. At MSU Ron
earned a graduate degree in Physical Educa-
tion, with minors in Driver's Education and
Geography. While in college, Ron met and
married a girl from Williston, North Dakota.
Following graduation, Ron and Cheryl Dun-
bar returned to LaBelle where Ron began
working at LaBelle High School. Over the
past 27 years, Ron has influenced thousands
of young men and women in his roles as
Baseball Coach, Football Coach and Teach-
er. Ron is also the proud father of two sons,
a daughter, and grandfather of two.
When Ron was a student at LaBelle High
School, he was a member of the Football
Team, Basketball Team, Baseball Team, L-
Club, and was the Yearbook editor. It is no
surprise that Ron's fondest memories of his
high school years at LHS are playing sports
and hanging out with friends.
Ron's post graduation years at LHS have
provided him with a multitude of memories,
but a few of them stand out above the rest.
Ron shared that "Watching movie star Burt
Reynolds land on the LHS football field in
1995 to visit the football team before their
trip to Daytona to participate in the State
football finals" ranks near the top of his list.
Other special memories include the 1990
Girl's District Basketball championship over
Pahokee, the 1994 and 1995 football teams,
which were back-to-back District cham-
pions, plus the first ever District Baseball
championship win over Bishop Verot High
School in 1998. Candidly though, Ron shared
that he is most proud when he watches the
LHS graduates proceed across the stage at
Senior Graduation and "take their next step
into the future."
All of the members of Student Govern-

ment would like to congratulate Ron on his
selection as the 2010 LaBelle High School
Honored Alumnus. They also recognize and
respect Ron for "coming back home" where
he continues to be a dedicated coach and
teacher. Those who know Ron and his de-

votion to the students at LHS, are convinced
that the success many of our graduates enjoy
would not have been possible without the
encouragement and guidance provided by
some exceptional LHS staff members, like
our 2010 Honored Alumnus, Ron Dunbar.

And, I am ready to prove it.

Crossroads Church

moves to Miracle Tower

Crossroads Church of Lehigh is an-
nouncing their move from 411 Lee Blvd.
to 235 Joel Blvd. at Miracle Tower. Pastors
Mike and Shala White would like to take
this opportunity to invite everyone to come
to a gathering of believers and experience
a freedom, love and a new sense of Jesus
Christ. They say they truly believe that God
is the answer for every situation in your life.
They previously pastored in LaBelle.
"We are so excited. The Lord has
brought us to Lehigh Acres and we are
thrilled. We are not exactly new to Lehigh
as we started here on June 9, 2010. We
have steadily grown since then and we
outgrew our building there on Lee Blvd.
We are very thankful for this as we see the
growth that the Lord has provided. We are
now in our new location at 235 Joel Blvd.
where we have plenty of room for many
new classes and activities."
Pastor Mike White has been in the min-
istry for 26 years. He has served as Pastor
in four churches, three of which he started
from the ground up. He has always had
his wife Pastor Shala White working along
side of him. She has always been involved
in children's ministry, teens, young adults
and women's ministry. She has always
started and directed a drama team at ev-
ery church they have pastored with much
success reaching young people in the com-
Along with pastoring, the Whites trav-
eled for seven years full-time singing and
evangelizing across the United States. Dur-
ing this time they were blessed by the Lord
seeing over four thousand people come
to Christ. They also had nine songs on the
national and international gospel music
charts and were featured on many national
radio and television stations. During this
time their two children were always in-
volved in their ministry and as adults are to-

day. Michael plays the bass and the drums
and Dara sings and is the co-director of
their drama team. "We are very thankful to
have our children working with us." says
Pastor Mike.
They believe they are on a journey de-
signed by the Lord and He has called us to
Lehigh Acres. We look forward to meeting
the other pastors here in town and we pray
for all the churches to be blessed and see a
great move of God.
The Lord has put together an awesome,
fresh, new beginning. We would love to
have you join us. Maybe you have always
thought about going to church someday
and you have kept putting it off because of
how church was when you were a kid. Or,
maybe you have been hurt in the past and
it is time to give church a try again. What-
ever the reason -now is the time! What
a privilege -He is calling you! If you feel
led by God and you are waiting for Him to
open a door for you to be used, maybe this
is just what you have been waiting for. It
is so exciting to begin again and see how
God puts things together. The fields are
ripe and the harvest is ready.
They feel have truly been blessed by the
move of God here at Crossroads and would
love to see you. Come to any or all of our
services and join us for dynamic preaching,
teaching, great music and experience the
love of Jesus Christ in a very personal way.
Isn't it time for a new beginning? God is
real and relevant in today's world so come
and find your direction at the "Crossroads."
We are located at 235 Joel Blvd. at Miracle
Tower. Service times are Sunday at 10:00
a.m. and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. The phone
number is 239-281-5757 or 239-369-4231.

Woman talk
Phyllis Wallace, host of Lutheran Hour Ministries' Woman-to-Woman Talk Ra-
dio, came all the way from Collinsville, Illinois, to bring a message to Christ
the King Lutheran Church in LaBelle. Phyllis spoke to the congregation about
"There's a Broadcaster in All of Us!" She speaks nationwide on embracing
stress, overcoming your past and opening the gifts you have hiding under
your "stuff." She endorses the priceless value of humor in getting through
life. Her upbeat, candidly refreshing enthusiasm for being a "Free Woman"
comes through her stories, eliciting laughter and tears as she shares how
the Truth sets us free. Phyllis contends, "It may take longer than you want to
learn a lesson from life, but it never takes longer than you have!"

than what he had previously. Roo-
Roo is still available for adoption!

Operation Medicine Cabinet comes to Hendry and Glades

The time has come to clean out your
medicine cabinet. Did you know that home
medicine cabinets are the number one
source for prescription drug abuse among
our youth? Florida teens abuse prescrip-
tion pain relievers more than any other il-
licit drug except marijuana, according to the
2008 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey.
And, according to the United Way Commis-
sion on Substance Abuse, prescription drug
abuse is skyrocketing. This fact has fed the
increasing rates of opiate-related deaths in
recent years.
Now there is something you can do to
help reduce the risk of prescription drugs
falling into the wrong hands. On Saturday,
Nov. 13, you can turn in your expired, un-

used or unwanted prescription drugs -no
questions asked -to one of the local Op-
eration Medicine Cabinet" drop off loca-
tions. Drug Free Hendry County and the
Hendry and Glades County Sheriff's Offices
have partnered with U-Save Supermarkets,
Walgreens, and the Glades County Health
Department to offer this community pro-
gram for the first time in Hendry and Glades
Medication drops offs will be welcomed
during Operation Medicine Cabinet between
10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, at the

Operation Medicine Cabinet" is one
way that the community can actively reduce
youth prescription drug abuse by removing
the source from their homes. This program,
endorsed by the Florida Crime Prevention
Association, provides a safe way of destroy-
ing pharmaceuticals through incineration,
which environmental specialists consider
the best method. By burning the pharma-
ceuticals, as opposed to flushing or sending
medication to the landfill, we avoid pollut-
ing our environment. Help spread the word
and encourage your friends and neighbors

to gather unused or expired prescriptions,

Caloosa Belle


LaBelle Bike Fest 2010 was an all around success

By Ray 'Bouncer' Leventhal
The Inaugural LaBelle Bike Fest (LBF),
held on October 9, 2010, was conceived for
many reasons, not the least of which was to
bring new faces into LaBelle and to highlight
the beauty and warmth of Barron Park and
the City itself. Part of the charm of our City is
the presence of the Veteran's Memorial Park,
located on SR80, across the street from the

Hendry County Courthouse. This event was
also intended to help fund the completion of
this beautiful park.
All committee members, event workers
and organizers donated their time and effort
to make the LBF happen. The volunteers,
through their efforts and generosity, have
done our City a great service for which they
are due our thanks.

Given the attendance by about 2,200 mo-
torcycles throughout the day, the peaceful,
serene setting of Barron Park full of vendors,
the presentation of some of LaBelle's finest
food offerings (the Taste of LaBelle) and the
bike games hosted by American Legion Rid-
ers Chapter 130, it is easy to state that the
event was a great success.
While all that is true, the real success is
in what happened after the LaBelle Bike Fest
Committee's wrap-up meeting on October
23, 2010. Over $2,000 was donated to the
Veteran's Memorial Park Fund.
The stated beneficiary of this event was
the Veteran's Memorial Park and it was a
great pleasure to see that donation being

handed off to American Legion Post 130's
First Vice Commander, Bill Davis.
Sponsors are an important part of any
such event and this one was no exception.
Many, many thanks to all of our event spon-
sors: City of LaBelle, CPR Tools, Inc., Sea-
coast National Bank, Goldstein, Buckley,
Cechman, Rice & Purtz, PA., T & M Portable
Restrooms, Inc., Hendry County Economic
Development Council, Waste Services, Inc.
The LBF committee will meet again in
January and begin the planning of next
year's event, with the hope that the annual
LaBelle Bike Fest will continue to bring more
people and commerce into our wonderful
