Hometown Hero 2012: Mary Bellcase Dear Readers, On behalf of the staff at the Zachary Post and Feliciana Explorer, I would like to extend a hearty congratulations to Mrs. Mary Bellcase, the papers’ 2012 Hometown Hero(ine)! Mrs. Bellcase, as our readers know by now, is the compassionate, tireless leader behind Zachary Community Helpers, an organization that helps to fill the more urgent needs of many of the area’s struggling families. All year long, Mrs. Bellcase is answering calls: one for a new pair of shoes for a little one’s pinched toes, a heater for a family with no central heating system or food for empty bellies. Her busiest time of year is the holidays, when she and her team of volunteers organize a toy drive for area children. Mrs. Bellcase chose Zachary Community Helpers as the recipient of the $500 prize. Knowing how thrifty Mrs. Bellcase is, we know these funds will go a long way. Over and over as the competition progressed, Mrs. Bellcase expressed sincere surprise–first at her nomination, second at being selected as a finalist, and finally when she was informed

The Lady Broncos have had a strong season this year. Even though the weather has had them practicing daily in the cold and rain, they have remained strong and fierce. Last week, the team defeated Walker 3-0 and Denham Springs 5-0, keeping them undefeated in District! The ladies continue to practice and focus on strong ball skills, communication and team work. They will finish their regular season games this week at home Tuesday against St. Michael and then Friday against Central. The game on Friday against Central is also senior night. Everyone is invited to cheer on the team at 6 p.m. both nights.

Engles, public relations chair, the idea for this fundraiser came from Carrie Branch whose husband was battling terminal cancer four years ago. Branch had the idea of a party, Mardi Gras style, that would also raise much-needed funds. “When Carrie’s husband took a turn for the worse, they were not able to contribute as much time as they wanted to making this party come to life.

For many of us, cancer will never touch our lives; but sadly, there are far more community members whose lives have been touched by cancer. This year’s queen is Mrs. Danya Doiron Delapasse, and her story is known to many. After a lengthy and inspi-

rational battle with cancer, her husband, Dustin Michael Delapasse, 38, passed away in September of 2012. It is stories such as this that inspire the committee for the gala to press on for a good cause while having a great time. Mrs. Delapasse will be joined by King Tom Ed McHugh.

that she was the winner. I suppose for someone who has silently and selflessly worked for 25 years at the same mission, accolades are unexpected and beside-the-point. But for those of us whose lives aren’t lived in service, her efforts are beyond admirable…they are amazing. When we embarked upon our inaugural Hometown Heroes competition, we envisioned an opportunity to highlight individuals who make a lasting impact on our communities but who are not often recognized for their service. The response we received from the public was overwhelming. Not only did we receive an outstanding pool of nominees, we also received hundreds of votes from the public who selected the hero that most inspired them. Thank you to everyone who participate; we hope through this contest that we have provided a way for the community to sufficiently express its thanks, not only to Mrs. Bellcase, but to all of our nominees

and finalists. To the finalists: We are so appreciative of the time each of you gave towards this effort. We understand that revealing your thoughts and motivations behind the service work you all provide can seem like an unnaturally public expression of something that is very private. But by sharing your stories, we know that you inspired others to give a little more of themselves and to see the value in the un-glamorous, behind-the-scenes work that you all do. We know that your stories had an impact on the community because we were told so by readers … again and again.  To the nominators: Thank you for taking the time to submit your nominee. It is as great a gift to sit down and write 500 words by deadline to honor the work of someone else as it is to actually do the work itself. Without your effort, the community would never have come to know about these inspiring heroes; and for that, the community would have been a little poorer. Nalini Raghavan, Editor
