County Prepares



For Threat Of



Bird Flu Outbreak


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
Sparks ,were flying at the Bryant Blacksmith Shop and at the park entrance gates as Pioneer Park Days went off with a bang in
2006. Festival director Jane Long said, attendance was up at the annual five-day event in Zolfo Springs, held March 1-5 this year.
Gate receipts increased by about $5,000 or more. The weather was wonderful, business was brisk and the sights and sounds were
super. Long particularly noted the success of the Florida Frontiersmen encampment In Pioneer Village and the various artists at
the entertainment pavilion. For more photos of the fun, see 6&7C.

Will I get the bird flu? Will you?
Health officials are predicting
that the Asian Avian Influenza may
reach the United States this year, or
the next, or the next.
There were three influenza pan-
demics in the last century, all of
which caused far more deaths than
a typical flu season. It may be time
for the next. "The clock is ticking;
we just don't know what time it is,"
warns health officials.
With this in mind, the state is
holding a series of "Pandemic
Pandemonium" workshops around
the state. Hardee County's was
Thursday, when nearly 50 people
met for a tabletop exercise session
on how the county would handle
such an event as a bird flu outbreak.
When it was all said and done,
"the public can do more to prevent
the spread of the flu than we can,"
said Christine Archer, public health
prepqpdness coordinator for the
Hardee County Health Department,
which hosted Thursday's work-
shop.


Archer said "Hardee County is
preparing for the worst case sce-
nario. We have a written plan and
fine-tuned it during the workshop.
We are stockpiling medical materi-
als. But, simple hand-washing may
be the biggest preventative there is.
"It's what people do that will
make the difference. If you are sick,
don't go to work or school. Don't
cough in the air, use a tissue or your
sleeve. Don't shake hands during
the flu outbreak," she continued.
The workshop, involving two
dozen nurses, doctors, School
Board, County Commission, emer-
gency medical services and hospi-
tal personnel, some from surround-
ing counties, was a fount of infor-
mation.
For instance, people typically
carry between 10,000 and 10 mil-
lion bacteria on each hand. During
a sneeze, millions of tiny droplets
of water and mucus, containing
virus particles or bacteria, are
expelled at about 200 miles per
hours. This is a major cause of the
spread of influenza.

He was booked into the Hardee
County Jail at about 5 p.m. on
Thursday. Bond was set at
$31,500. Records show he was
released on Monday as he awaits
trial on the four criminal counts.
Also jailed in the raid was Raul
Molina, 31, P.O. Box 1272, Bowl-

room with Macedo when detectives
arrived and allegedly was found


Hardee County Sanitary Landfill,
located at 685 Airport Road, which
is about three miles east of
Wauchula and north off of Main
Street.
So what is considered haz-
ardous?
Garden and household pesti-
cides, household chemicals and
cleaners, aerosols of any kind, old
paint, florescent light bulbs, used
oil, old petroleum products or
antifreeze, pool or photographic
chemicals, batteries, polyurethane
sealers and more.
None of these items should be
thrown out with regular household
garbage. Doing so contaminates the
landfill and, ultimately, water sup-
plies.
Tires, the landfill advises, are not
considered hazardous waste.
Hazardous household items
should only be brought to the land-
fill on the designated days. There
are three more Household Hazard-
ous Waste Days scheduled for
2006: June 17, Sept. 16 and Dec.
16. In between dates, save and store
hazardous items until the next free
disposal day.
Remember, certain items are
unacceptable for Hazardous Waste
Days. These include explosives,
pyrotechnics, radioactive, infec-
tious and bio-hazardous waste, gas
cylinders, flares, ammunition and

He was booked into the county
jail on charges of possession of
methamphetamine with intent to,
sell and possession of drug para-
phernalia. His bond has been set at
$10,000.
Two other people in the motel
room when detectives arrived were
not arrested. Neither was found in
possession of any drugs.
Bowling Green Police Chief
John Scheel said the raid on Room
14 at the Colonial Arms Motel at
2370 U.S. 17 N. in Wauchula was
conducted following a controlled
buy using a confidential source.
Authorities had information alleg-
ing Macedo was selling drugs from


that room, he said.
Scheel gave the confidential
source $300 to attempt to make a
controlled buy of what is called an
"eight ball" on the street, or 3.5
grams of methamphetamine.
Scheel previously was able to pho-
tocopy $200 of the purchase
money, giving authorities a record
of the serial numbers on those bills.
At about 3 p.m. Thursday, the
buy took place, with officers from
the Bowling Green Police Depart-
ment and the Hardee County Drug
Task Force comprised of the
Sheriff's Office and the Wauchula
Police Department monitoring
the alleged transaction, he said.
Based on that purchase, Det.


Clay Nicholson obtained a search
warrant for the motel room. It was
executed at about 4:45 p.m.

room saw a glass pipe and a strip of

The historic Wauchula Train Depot on East Main Street Is currently on track for repairs to damages sustained during the 2004 hur-
ricane season. Performing the task are workers from Double D Construction Inc. and Florida Restoration Inc. The efforts will
restore the structural Integrity of the building, which lost its north wall, windows, boardwalk and roof to hurricane winds. Most of
the expense will be covered by $350,000 in insurance proceeds. Once complete, the restoration work will again make the depot
an aesthetically pleasing sight while it awaits state Department of Transportation grant money for a full renovation In 2009.

Although some plans for hous-
ing, single and multi-family, con-
tinue despite the problems cropping
up, others will stop for a while.
Janet Gilliard, director of com-
munity development and general
services, advised recently that
applications for all housing assis-
tance programs would not be
accepted after March 15 because
all program funds for this fiscal
year have been targeted.
Subsidized programs designed
to assist with first time home own-
ership down payments and closing
costs, owner-occupied house reha-
bilitation or replacement and simi-
lar projects have run out of money
for the rest of this fiscal year
(through September 2006), Gilliard
said.
-That will, of course, impact the
few remaining renters at the FEMA
(Federal Emergency Management
Agency) "temporary" trailer park
in south Wauchula, who have
passed the deadline to relocate.
At the same time, the Carlisle
S Group renewed its plans to build
the 104-unit low-to-moderate
income Valencia Gardens apart-
S- ment complex off U. S. 17 North
and east of the Farmer's Market in
Wauchula.

Also, David First announced
that permitting is almost complete
for the over-55 single-family home
subdivision off Heard Bridge Walk
called Orange Walk which plans
about 70 homes of 1,200 to 1,500
square feet, a club house, pool and
tennis and shuffleboard courts. He
hopes to break ground about April
1. Sherrick Stone, the local contact
for the lots, has an office at his irri-
gation store.
In other local building, crews
have demolished and removed the
hurricane-ravaged the Wauchula
Garden Center, which will be
replaced by a 3,000 square-foot
prefab shell with an aesthetically
pleasing facade similar to the adja-
cent Hardee Help Center (old
Ausley Memorial Library), said
Wauchula City Manager Rick
Giroux.

A Hardee Correction) Institution
work crew will build the inside
rooms and bring them to the site. It
should be done by the end of 2006,
he added.
There are many other commer-
cial and housing ventures under
way around Wauchula and the
county. Most will be delayed a
while until the Wauchula and coun-
ty wastewater plant expansions are
complete.

Following a damaging hurricane season and political environment, the town of Zolfo Springs is ready for recovery and rebuilding-
Here, workers from Johnson's Excavation clear the destroyed and demolished police and fire department building. Cost for thM
demolition and removal was $17;000. A temporary police department sits immediately north of the old site (background), while ,
temporary fire building sits on a northern corner. The town's new mayor, Mike Schofield, has taken the oath of office, and attendF,
ed his first meeting Monday night. Also, the town has rehired fbrmer-finance director Linda Roberson, who will return to work on
March 27, and Warren Brittingham has been named interim police chief. Jordan & Associates, of Orange Park, was approved as
the town's new grants writer Monday night, and a contract was signed with Key Wastewater, the town's new water and sewer comr
pany. Further, state plans for the widening of U.S. 17 through and south of the town-will be discussed Tuesday at 6 p.m. in a world'

aluminum foil in plain view.
Macedo was searched by
Nicholson, who allegedly found a
cloth pouch in Macedo's right pants
pocket containing four individual
plastic bags of a substance which
tested positive for methampheta-
mine.-
The bags weighed 1.7 grams, 3.4
grams, 3.5 grams and 3.2 grams, he
said.
Further, his wallet held $491,
with $180 of it matching the bills
Scheel had given the confidential
source.
A search of a dresser drawer
allegedly revealed three more bags
of methamphetamine, weighing .5
grams, .4 grams and 2.7 grams.
Scales, plastic sandwich-size bags
and 17.8 grams of methylsufonyl-
methane known as MSM and
commonly used to "cut" the narcot-
ic to obtain a higher profit also
were found.
In all, Scheel said, detectives
found Macedo in possession of
15.4 grams of methamphetamine.
It takes 14 grams of the narcotic
to be charged with drug trafficking.
The search of Molina, conducted
by Scheel, allegedly revealed two
plastic bags inside a cloth pouch in
the pocket of his pants. They
weighed in at 3.4 grams each, he
said.
Scheel then discovered more of
the drug in Molina's right sock, that
bag weighing 1.1 grams, the chief
alleged.
Searches of two others, a male
and a female, did not uncover any
illegal substances.
Macedo and Molina were placed
under arrest.

BIRD FLU
Continued From 1A


Alcohol gel hand antiseptics are
very effective in the removal of
bacteria. Thorough hand-washing
for at least 20 seconds with soap
and water also removes many bac-
teria.
It is vitally important to wash
hands after changing diapers, using
public restrooms, and before, dur-
ing and after preparing food. Also
essential is to wash hands after han-
dling the trash, animals or animal
waste, being aroiiUd" a sick person,
or even coughing or sneezing.
If at all possible, avoid touching
your eyes, nose or mouth because
germs are spread when a person
touches something that is contami-
nated with germs and then touches
his or her face. "It's a good idea
after washing your hands in a pub-
lic restroom to use the paper towel
to turn off the water and open the
door. Whoever touched these last


may not have washed their hands
and could infect you," explained
Archer.
The bird flu begins with wild
birds and spreads to chickens and
on to humans, or perhaps from
chickens to pigs to humans, and
then from human to human. There
currently is no vaccine available for
it, -.although antiviral ; medications.
may help some,, .people.
Development of an effective vac-
cine is months away.
It is estimated that the worldwide
death toll from this flu would be up
to 100 million. There have been
outbreaks in at least eight Asian
nations. In the U.S. even a medium-
level pandemic could cause up to
200,000 deaths and 750,000 hospi-
talizations among the 20 million
who become ill from the disease.
From 15 to 35 percent of the popu-


lation, many in the 20s and 300,
could be affected.
The local pandemic plan includes
isolating the sick and their families,I
closing schools and day-cares i
necessary, curtailment of business
travel, shopping and entertainment?
and similar ways to prevent the?
spread of the disease. "The longer
we can delay, the onset of the epi-
demi min our community, th .0ipp.
illness we can prevent. It wilg
take tt'hal 'o60peition from the"-
community," concluded the work-
shop presentation.
Catch-phrases could become thk
norm. "Don't be a dope use
water and soap." or "If you sneeze*
use a tissue, please." Use of hanad
sanitizers may be commonplace.
"Be wise sanitize." And, finally
using a surgical mask, "If you are
coughing and sneezing, here's your.
task wear a mask."


Talking Points:

"Avian Influenza/ Dead birds/ Eating Poultry"

What is Avian Influenza?
"Bird flu" is the common name for avian influenza, an infection caused by avian (bird) influenza (flu)
viruses.
Avian influenza viruses occur naturally among birds.
Bird flu is contagious among birds and can make some birds, including chickens, ducks, and turkeys,
sick and kill them.
Avian Influenza (H5NI) is one of the bird flu viruses that occur mainly in birds, but there is concern that
this virus could change and easily infect humans in the future.
The Asian strain of Avian Influenza H5NI has not been detected in birds or humans in the United States.
Agencies in Florida are monitoring and testing poultry and wild migratory birds for Avian Influenza.


What do I do if I find a dead bird?
Do not handle birds that are obviously sick or found dead.
If you do handle a dead bird, do not rub your eyes, eat, drink or smoke until you can wash your hands.
Report wild bird deaths to http://MyFWC.com/bird
Check this web page for more information: www.MyFloridaEH.com
Owners of "backyard" chicken flocks should contact the Department of Agriculture at (850) 410-0900 if
unexpected chicken deaths occur in their flocks.


What about eating chicken, turkey or eggs?
Poultry that is properly cooked is safe to eat.
Do not eat raw poultry parts, including raw blood, or raw eggs.
After handling frozen or thawed raw poultry or eggs, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
Wash and thoroughly clean all surfaces and utensils that have been in contact with raw meat.
Thorough cooking of poultry meat will kill viruses. The poultry meat should not be pink in any part and
needs to reach 1650F at the center.
Egg yolks should not be runny or liquid.


How can I protect myself from bird flu and other forms of flu?
/ While there is no vaccination currently available for bird flu, these are simple steps that can help pre-
vent any flu:
Stay home when you are sick and keep sick children home;
Clean your hands often with soap and water or, if soap and water are unavailable, with an alcohol-
based hand cleaner;
To keep from spreading germs to yourself and others, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth;
Stay away from people who are sick;
Cover you nose and mouth with a tissue every time you cough or sneeze and throw the used tissue
away.
If you don't have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve.
Do not handle dead birds.


Other important steps you can take:
Wash hands with soap and water immediately after touching a bird
Wear rubber gloves when cleaning birds you plan to eat, or when cleaning bird feeders.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Lt. Col. Robert Douglas was born on the Dixie Highway in Illinois. He
lives in Auburndale and attends the Wauchula Lions Club.
i The Dixie Highway is a long one and come through Hardee County on
the Old Bowling Green Road and Florida Avenue.

1 I recently attended a few games of the boys' high school basketball
state tournament in Lakeland.
Sarasota Booker, in Hardee High's district, won the state title in Class
14-A. Booker defeated Miami Monsignor Pace and Milton in close 'games.
|In football this past season Booker was the state first runner-up.
In basketball height helps. I saw two shorter teams win over taller
teams due to excellent defense and hustle.
Hardee High has never reached the Final Four in basketball. In football
ardee has been first runner-up in the state three times in its class.
The state basketball tournament began in 1922 and was played at the
university of Florida Gym. There was only one classification statewide.
Jacksonville Duval defeated Winter Haven 33-17 to become the first offi-
Sal state champion.
The state went to two classifications in 1938 and to three classifica-
ions in 1946. The state went to four classes in 1951, as Florida's popula-
.ion continued to grow.
The tourney moved to Jacksonville from 1969 to 1976, then to
makeland from 1977 to 1990. In 1994 the tourney wen to six classifications
thich continues today.
The tournament was held in Tallahassee from 1991 to 1995 before
tuningg to Lakeland in 1996 and continuing there.
Lakeland is such a wonderful central location in Florida. My father
graduated from Miami Senior High School, which has won the most state
championships with 18. Malone has won 13 and Port St. Joe 8. Miami High
las gone to the state tournament 51 times.
The Florida Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing
Thursday, March 30, on the proposed 10.9 miles of U.S. 17 improvements
between Third Ave. in Zolfo Springs and the Hardee/DeSoto county line.
-1 An informal open house will begin at 6 p.m. and the public hearing at
71p.m. at the Hardee Agri-Civic Center. People can express their views con-
arning'the location, conceptual design, social, economic and environmen-
tl effects of the Hwy. 17 widening project. FDOT officials will be there,
and there Will be aerial photographs showing proposed improvements.

; For the first time in 20 years the number of cases of soda sold in the
U.S. declined, reports the Beverage Digest as printed in the March 9 Tampa
Tribune.
A 20-ounce soda has 250 calories and 67 grams of sugar. Americans
are opting for healthier diets and are drinking more water, sports drinks
such as Gatorade and Powerade, energy drinks, and fruit drinks. Soda case
sales were off 0.7 percent in 2005.
Coca-Cola Classic was off 2 percent, Pepsi down 3.2 percent, Diet
Pepsi off 1.9 percent, and Diet Coke up 0.1 percent.
There has been a lot of national publicity on many Americans being
overweight and the health problems that condition can bring on, such as
heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

On another health note the Tribune had an article written by Marc
Ikaufman of The Washington Post stating the nation's per capital consump-
tOn of tobacco has fallen to levels not seen since the early 1930s.
The association of state attorneys noted a 4.2 percent decline in tobac-
c use in 2005 and an overall drop of 20 percent since tobacco companies
reached a national settlement in 1998 with the states.
Federal studies indicate about 21.7 percent of high school students
spoke. Just under 21 percent of U.S. adults about 45 million older than
1- -smoke. Kaufman' wrote," "Tobacco 'use remains the leading -pre-
vpqntabl cause of death." Smoking can cause heart and artery disease, can-
cer emphysema and other problems.

Bernard Wilkes, long-time head basketball coach at Jacksonville
Ribault High School, passed away in his sleep the night of March 4 at age

Wilkes had 758 career coaching victories in his 30 years at Ribault, 2
short of the record of 760 compiled by Don Wallen at Martin County High

The current AARP Bulletin magazine reports 400,000 Americans have

The traditional replacement surgery makes an 8 to 12-inch incision and

A recent, AARP Bulletin Magazine reports the estimated debt that
ery American owes the federal government is $156,000. This is due to the
nual budget deficit, the national debt, and promised but long-term
i funded commitments to Medicare and Social Security payments.
An AARP poll of 1,026 adults found 71 percent of responders are
concernedd or "very concerned" about the current deficit. Here is how
t iey Viewed eight possible ways to reduce the deficit:
-Keep the estate tax on estates over $2 million, 69 percent.
-Raise income taxes for households earning over $100,000, 61 per-
csjt.
-Cut defense spending, 41 percent.
---Create a national sales tax, 38 percent.
--Cut farm subsidies, 30 percent.

out of my hands. I grabbed the pole with both hands and held on while
whatfi er dPs' on the other end took off through the reeds. I hollered for"
Kellon to come help me as I followed the fish through the reeds trying to
pull it out into open water. By the time Kellon made it to me I had the fish
almost whipped. Whenever it finally came to the surface it was about a
seven-pound blue catfish. He helped me put it on the stringer, and we went
back to fishing.
After a half hour without another bite we decided to move. This time I
told Kellon I was going to pick the spot since his didn't produce any specks.
I found a place that had some thick grass and lily pads with some vegeta-
tion matted up on top. We got back into the water and resumed fishing.
After only a minute Kellon caught a nice speck. We continued fishing,
catching one here and there until about six o'clock.
When the sun started to go down the nice relaxing cool water began to
get cold. Finally whenever we began to lose feeling in our legs and feet we
decided it was time to get back in the boat.
We were now cold and about ready to go as it was getting dark. On the
way back in, I wanted to try one more spot. This time, fishing from the boat,
we made our way around the edge of some thick grass and vegetation The
first tim'e.Kellon dropped his jig down he immediately pulled up a speck. I
followed with a real nice one.
For about the next 10 minutes we really started catching them. It was
too bad it was almost dark. We stayed until we could hardly see and figured
we should head for the boat ramp before it got pitch black.
We ended up catching about 20 nice-sized specks 'and the big cat.
Luckily we never saw the first gator.

It has finally arrived. Spring gobbler season opens on Saturday. I am
leaving riday morning for the Avon Park Air Force Range to set up camp
and do a little scouting.
Later in the afternoon I will be joined by my brothers Jeremy and
Jonathah, as well as my dad. Hopefully between the four of us somebody
will get one.
To all of you giving them a try this weekend, I wish you good luck.

Okie Relays At

Avon Park


"I '~"~"


Step Outdoors
With Michael Kelly


Saturday afternoon I was able to do some speck fishing with friend
Kellon Durrance. We left town about two o'clock Saturday afternoon and
headed for Lake Istokpoga.
When we got to the boat ramp there were trucks lined up waiting to
pull their boats out of the water from a bass tournament that had just fin-
ished. They were having the weigh-in so we walked up to see the catch.
There were two big bass, one weighing eight pounds and the other nine
pounds, 15 ounces. The winners had five fish weighing 18 pounds.
After some of the trucks cleared out we finally launched our boat and
were headed off to find some specks. We didn't know exactly where we
wanted to fish so I told Kellon I was going to drive around the edge of the
lake until he spotted a place he thought looked good. After about 10 min-
utes he spotted a stand of pencil reeds he wanted to try.
When I stopped the boat Kellon made sure it was the right .depth
because we were going to wade fish. Most people think we are crazy for
wading, but you can really catch a lot more fish wading than out of a boat.
It is funny to watch other boaters go by and look at us like we have lost our
minds wading in the water with a perfectly good boat anchored nearby.
The only real drawback to wading is the chance of having a run-in with
an alligator. Most of the times while wading you rarely see a gator, and if
you do they usually swim the other direction. If you are careful and keep
a close watch out for them there usually aren't any problems. Just in case,
it is always nice to have a plan B, so each of us had a pistol strapped around
our necks if a gator wanted to get a little brave.
Once we got our poles ready and tied on a jig, we jumped into the
water. It was probably about four feet deep-and was nice and cool. Thejigs
we were using had a red head, chartreuse body and a white tail. Kellon went
around the left side of the reeds and I started off to the right.
After about 10 minutes of no action, something almost pulled the pole

FOR LENT: GIVING UP, GIVING MORE
S I'm stijlnot sure whether or not this was supposed to be what Lent w
Y;all' about, but I do remember that back in Minneapolis, .Minn., the ot
'guys in my class and I would spend endless hours trying to decide what'
,were going to give up. The general idea was this: it would have tobe son
thing that was really "sacrificial," but yet not so tough that you could t
possibly do without if. It wasn't an easy call.
Then Sister made it easy. W.ell,,sort of. She explained that for Lent
could do something positive, such as going to daily Mass. That put a wh4
new light' on'things.4k was a lot better at "doing" than I was at giving thi
UP.
Actually that's still the case, and I'm encouraged with each passing
year to discover as I find out more and more about Lent that Sister
Irenita had plenty of company when it cantorppmmending doing soni-
thing positive for the Lenten season. The, basic idea is that undertakigg

Meet the Doctor

Dr. Robert Helveston
licensed in the states of Florida,
Kentucky and Tennessee. After
graduation from Chiropractic
college, I have done extensive
Post Graduate studies which has
allowed me to successfully deal
with problem cases, structural
rehabilitation, extremity prob-
lems, migraine headaches, etc. I
am a member of the Florida
Chiropractic. Society and
The International Biocranial
Academy.
I moved to this area due to the
people and surroundings.
DOES CHIROPRACTIC
REALLY WORK?
Absolutely! Here are some
findings from studies done by
chiropractors and orthopedic
surgeons.
Harvard Medical School
Health Letter Sept. 1990
"Chiropractic treatment of
low back pain which affects 75
million Americans, is superior
to the standard regimen admin-
istered by medical doctors, a
major British study has conclud-
ed. Chiropractic almost certain-
ly confers worthwhile long-term
benefit in comparison with hos-
pital outpatient management,"


said Dr. T.W. Meade, a British
medical doctor who headed the
study conducted at 11 hospitals
and chiropractic clinics."
Federal Medical Study
Endorses Chiropractic For
Back Pain US Agency for
Healthcare Policy and Research.
December 8, 1994 A panel
of 23 doctors headed by Dr.
Stanley Bigos, M.D., Professor
of Orthopedic Surgery, studied
3,900 medical articles on low
back pain. Their conclusions
were that "Chiropractor's
manipulation of the spine was
more helpful than any of the fol-
lowing: traction, massage,
biofeedback, acupuncture,
injection of steroids into the
spine, back corsets, and ultra-
sound. Surgery was beneficial
only in 1 out of 100 cases!
MIGRAINE HEADACHES
GONE!
*In Australia, the federal gov-
ernment commissioned a study
to determine if chiropractic care
wa effective in treating
migraine headaches. 85 patients
who suffered from migraines for
an average of 19 years were
divided into three groups. One
group received chiropractic
treatment, the other two groups
received traditional medical
therapy. All three groups report-
ed some relief, but the chiro-
practic group reported superior-
ity on all levels studied!
Would you like even more
proof that chiropractic works?
Then listen to these comments
from my patients...
PATIENT SUCCESS
'STORIES
"I was suffering from severe
pain in my right shoulder and
arm. The pain was .almost
unbearable during the day and I
could not sleep at night. I went


to a medical doctor who told me
it was a pinched nerve in my
neck and wanted me to .see a
neurologist for possible surgery.
I called Dr. Helveston who x-
rayed my neck and explained
my condition to me. After one
session the pain was dramatical-
ly reduced. That night was the
first night I had slept since the
pain began. The best decision I
ever made was to seek the serv-
ices of Dr. Helveston."
-Jeff Smith
Dear Dr. Helveston,
I want to take this opportuni-
ty to say "Thank You". When I
hurt my back following
Hurricane Charley, leaving me
in severe pain and limited
mobility I thought I would have
to see a back specialist and
might even face surgery. Then
someone suggested that I see a
Chiropractor. This was an idea
that .I wasn't comfortable with
because I have always been
skeptical of Chiropractors. Not
being able to handle the pain I
decided to give you a chance
and I am glad that I did. After
following your 90 day treatment
and rehabilitation program I am
as good as I used to be with
complete mobility and pain free.
I praise the Lord that he worked
through you to bring about heal-
ing to my back. I hope this letter
will encourage others who are
just as skeptical as I used to be
to at least consider the possibili-
ty of a Chiropractor. Who
knows, it might just work.
-Sincerely,
Rev. Jim Davis
GUARANTEE OF GREAT
SERVICE
Obviously I cannot guarantee
results. No one can. But there is
one guarantee I can give you,
that is a guarantee to give my
best effort.


Plus, if I do not think I can
help you, I will tell you and
refer you to another specialist
who might be able to help.
LIMITED TIME OFFER
Obviously, with an offer like
thigh, I cannot afford to do it for
very long. So I picked March
20-31.
If you'd like to take me up on
my offer and see what chiro-
practic can do for you, all you
have to do is call our office and
set up an appointment.
Phone 773-9713
Call This Number Only
Call anytime between the

20-31.
I expect to get flooded with
appointments for this event, so
please call as soon as possible
to assure that you do not miss
out.
Thank you very much, and I
look forward in trying to help
you get rid of your pain so you

Florida Citrus Mutual



Hosts Fruit Handlers


-By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Florida Citrus Mutual held a bar-
becue luncheon on March 9 for fruit
handlers at the Linda Lou Ranch
south of Zolfo Springs.
The meeting was hosted by
Mutual president Marty McKenna
and ranch owners J.A. and Linda
Clark.
McKenna said Mutual has hired a
headhunter to recommend candi-
dates for chief executive officer, a
position held temporarily by J.A.
Clark. There are 10 resumes so far.
"We hope to hire someone by
:mid-summer or fall," said
McKenna.
A challenge faced by Mutual is


collecting voluntary dues of three
cents a box from growers. At least
one processor is not collecting dues.
A new plan may be needed to col-
lect dues for Mutual.
Clark said the Florida orange
crop has declined from a high of
240 million boxes to the current 154
million boxes, thereby reducing the
amount of potential dues available
to Mutual.
Clark said Florida Citrus Mutual
and U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam virtu-
ally wrote the hurricane relief bill
that resulted in growers damaged
by the 2004 hurricanes receiving
storm loss compensation of up to
$1,500 an acre.


Clark said Mutual has spent close
to a million dollars on a lawsuit on
.illegal dumping of foreign orange
juice into the U.S. ,at prices below
cost.
Foreign interests own about 50
percent of the citrus processing
capacity in Florida.
Clark asked handlers to keep
Mutual informed of citrus growers
who are not members of Mutual or
who may be upset with Mutual.
A truck hauling a semi-load of
citrus gets five to six miles per gal-
lon of fuel.
The menu consisted of ribs and
chicken, baked beans, potato salad
and strawberry shortcake.

Letter To The Editor 1

Hwy. 17 AndrIEA Rpad Is

A Dangerous Intersection


Dear Editor,'
A couple of weeks ago while
attending a memorial service I
came across deputy Bobby Brown.
He suggested I write you and men-'
tion Hwy. 17 and REA Road.
He remembered an article I wrote-
sometime after the lights were put
up. I sat in my car at Winn-Dixie
parking lot and watched.
Cars coming down REA Road do


not always yield. They turn to U.S.
17 going north and do not look. On
Hwy. 17 going south or north, I
watched tires screech. I saw people,
cuss and yell at each other.
Deputy Brown agrees we need a
sign stating "dangerous intersection
ahead" or drop the speed limit,
even up to putting ridges in road
like we have at North Florida Ave.
and Hwy 64. This may stop or slow

a lot of people from being killed or
hurt. .
The EMT also agrees with this as
they see the horrible effects that ,
take place.
My friend was'hurt by someone
running a red light. I am only one
person, and we need to pull togeth-
er and make a change.
. These things I wrote are true and
could happen to you.
And to top it all, a lady in a truck'
in front of me took a left turn on red
at Carlton Street and Hivy. 17
North. There could have been a
wreck. She was lucky. God bless.

AN OPEN LETTER TO

ALL HARDEE COUNTY RESIDENTS
FROM: MIKE MATHIS AND CROWN FORD
Crown Ford has been your local Ford dealer for over a year now, and
we are very proud to serve Hardee County. I know that many different Ford
dealers have come and gone over the years, but I can assure you that
Crown Ford is here to stay. In fact, we've bought property here that will one
day become an all-new dealership.
Over the last year we have madeseveral improvements to our facility to
serve you better. We have given our building a much-needed facelift to
improve its appearance. We have invested over $50,000 in our Service
Department to bring state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair equipment to
Hardee County.
Some of these improvements include a new computerized alignment
rack that will align your vehicle to exact specifications, and Hardee
County's only road-force tire-balance machine that balances your tires
according to actual on-the-road driving conditions. Our new air-condition-
ing repair unit will diagnose any A/C problem and repair it in a fraction of
the time it used to take. We are proudest of our three Ford Master
Technicians, who represent the finest technicians anywhere.
Myself and our sales associates are all Hardee County residents and
are here to assist you with your new and used vehicle needs. Our low over-
head allows us to sell you a new Ford for less than any competitor. With
over 200 new Fords in stock, chances are we'll have the right one for you.
If not, we'll get you what you want within 24 to 48 hours, and still save you
money. We are very proud of our Used Vehicle Department. We price our
used vehicles on the money, and we don't play pricing games at your
expense. Additionally, we feature the nicest cleanest used cars and trucks
in the area.
As a Hardee County business we feel it is our privelege and honor to
help support our community whenever possible. In the past year,, Crown
Ford has donated over $25,000 to Hardee County schools, youth activities,
churches and other charitable organizations. We will continue to support
these organizations in the years to come. In addition, any business need
or supply that we can buy locally, we do so. It's the right thing to do.
In closing, thank you to the hundreds of residents who have given us an
opportunity to serve you this past year. It has been our pleasure. To those


of you who have not, come see us sometime. Even if it's just to have a cup
of coffee and say "hi." You're always welcome at Crown Ford.
Sincerely,
Mike Mathis
General Manager
Crown Ford, Wauhcula

Lady Cat



Softball Slow


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee girls softball seems to
have come to a standstill.
The Lady Cats are having a hard
time putting runs on the board
while allowing opponents to score
heavily.
The girls dropped their most
quintet of games by combined
scores 69-17.
The girls will continue efforts in
a home stand this week and next.
Today (Thursday) the Lady Cats
host All Saints Academy in a 6 p.m.
varsity-only game. Another is
tomorrow at six against Braden
River.
Next week, the junior varsity
gets in a pair of games. On
Monday, Haines City comes in for
a pair of games rescheduled from
April 14. On Tuesday, the home
games are against DeSoto. These
games have 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.
starts respectively, with the JV get-
ting the early game.
There is a varsity-only game at
Sarasota Booker on March 24.
Then action ceases until after
Spring Break, when the varsity
travels to All Saints for an April 4
game.
Dating back to the Feb. 28 home
game against Avon Park, the varsi-
ty outings haven't beep that good.
In this game, the Lady Red Devils
opened with four runs, added a half
dozen more in the top of the second
inning, three in the third and three
more in the top of the fifth. A game
has to go to the fifth inning before
the 10-run mercy rule steps in to
end the game. .
Hardee stranded runners in the
second, fourth and fifth innings.
Emily Adams singled to right cen-
ter and stole second in the home'
half of the second inning. In the
fourth, Jamie Buckley singled up
the middle and got to second on the
overthrow. In the fifth, Chelsea
Owens was hit by a pitch and left at
first base.
In the March 3 game at Braden
River, Hardee had its best outing,
but came home on the short end of
an 11-5 score Braden River put a
pair of scores in the book in both
the first and second stanzas. In the
third, Hardee narrowed the gap
with a three-run outburst. Miranda
Powell began it when the second
baseman muffed her hit. With one
down, Amber Steedley drew a walk
and Rebekah Mahoney was safe on
a bunt. An error on a Buckley hit
allowed the three teammates to
score. It was 4-3. Braden River
upped that to 5-3 with one run in
the bottom of the fourth on a walk,
fielder's choice and pair of hits.
Hardee tied the game in the top
of the fourth. Ashley Timmons and
Powell were safe on their hits and
an error in right field on a Steedley
hit plated the first two runners. It
was 5-5.
The Lady Pirates regrouped in

the bottom of the fourth, putting
five tallies on the board while send-
ing 11 batters to the plate. A final
insurance run in the fifth cemented
the Braden River 11-5 win.
At home on March 7 against
Lake Placid, Hardee again tried to
play catch-up softball. Lake Placid
got two runs in the first inning on a
series of errors. Hardee answered
with a run of its own on an error on
a Steedley, sacrifice by Mahoney
and Buckley hit.
The Lady Dragons exploded in
the top of the second to put seven
scores on the board on five hits,
walks and an error. It was 9-1.
Hardee got one back in the home
half of the inning when Adams
drew a walk and stole her way
around the bases,
Allowing only one run on a pair
of errors in the Lake Placid third
inning, Hardee went to work in the
bottom of the inning. Five Lady
Wildcats came around to cross
home plate as 11 batters went to the
plate. Singles by Mahoney,
Timmons, Buckley and Casey
Johnson and a double by Mahoney
kept runners moving along.
Lake Placid put three runs on the
board in the fifth inning and one in
the sixth. Hardee stranded runners
in the fourth, fifth and seventh
innings, but got one more score in
the sixth. Danielle Hines was safe
at first and advance on a wild pitch
before an error on an Adams hit to
left field, brought Hines home. The
final score was 9-5.
At Fort Meade on March 9, the
Lady Cats were shut out by a strong
Lady Miner pitching performance,
retiring nine of the Hardee batters
on strike-outs. Fort Meade put runs
on the board in each inning to win
11-0.
On Friday evening at home
against Booker, Hardee battled for
the first three innings. Booker was
limited to a pair of scores, in. the
first inning on a hit batter, double
and single. Hardee stranded
Timmons and Buckley.
It was four up, three down for the
Lady Tornadoes in the second at-
bat. Hardee halved the Booker
score with a run of its own. Hines
singled to left field, went to second
on a Kayla Nix sacrifice and came
home on an error on a Krystin
Robertson hit coupled with a Steed-
ley RBI single to left field.
Booker put another pair of tallies
in the pocket in the top of the third
on a hit, walk and error. Hardee
answered with another run.
Timmons left off with a double,
went to third on a Buckley sacrifice
and home on an Adams hit to left
field.
The game began to unravel as
Booker continued to score, adding
twin scores in the fourth, five in the
fifth and five more in the sixth.
Hardee left the bases loaded in the
fourth, one aboard in the fifth and

one in the sixth in enduring the 16-
2 loss.
Meanwhile, the infrequent junior
varsity games have had mixed
results. Against Lake Placid on
March 7, the junior Lady Cats bat-
tled in an 11-6 victory. The junior
Lady Dragons picked up a pair of
first inning tallies and added four
more in the top of the third.
Hardee didn't get going until the
home half of the third,-but put three
tiins oni the board Jerrica Grimsley
drew a walk, Ashley Alden sifi~led
to right and Lindsey Moye walked;
They were pushed home by a com-
bination of teammates, stolen bases
and passed balls. It was 3-5.
Hardee had a big time in the
fourth inning, adding seven runs
while sending 11 batters to the
plate. A double by Ciara Lambert
was the big blow.
Hardee added the final score in
thp fifth inning. Alden walked,
stole second and third and raced
home on an overthrow before the
game was called on the time limit

Navy Seaman Apprentice Jules F.
Warren and his fellow shipmates
participated in a Sailor-swap during
a schedule deployment while
assigned to the amphibious dock
landing ship USS Carter Hall,
homeported at Naval Amphibious
Base Little Creek, Virginia Beach,
Va.
The seaman is the son of Cindy
L. Warren of Wauchula and joined
the Navy in February 2005.
During the sailor-swap, U.S.
sailors experienced shipboard life
on the French ship Courbet by
going on tours and dining on French
cuisine. The French sailors saw the
amphibious side of the U.S. Navy,
when they rode ,opntwo Lapding
Craft Air Cusion (LCAC) hoyer-
crafts embarked on Carter Hall.'
The purpose of the sailor-swap
was to build comraderie between
the two ships conducting maritime
security operations (MSO) in the
Persian Gulf. LCAC is a high-speed
landing craft capable of carrying a
60-75 ton load. It is used to trans-
port weapons systems, cargo and
personnel from ship to shore and
across the beach.
The primary mission of the dock
landing ship is to transport person-
nel, vehicles and cargo to any
coastal environment worldwide and
launch the equipment ashore in sup-
port of military or humanitarian
assistance operations.


Dear Editor,
We are writing this letter as a
reminder that Project Graduation
2006 for Fort Meade High School
Seniors is going to be here very
soon. Project Graduation is an all
night celebration for all our seniors,
which is alcohol and drug-free.
During the evening they will be
provided food, entertainment and
other activities to make the evening
a night to remember. Parents and
other adult volunteers will super-
vise this lock-in activity. We feel
this is a worthy celebration for the
safety of our children on a special
night in their lives.
The parents of the Seniors Class
are responsible for the planning of
this party with your help and sup-
port. So far we have had several
fundraisers to raise money, but our
main source of income comes from
the community and business dona-
tions. We have worked hard but
with a little more than two months
away we are still short of our fund
raising goal.
If you could please help us in any
way it'would be greatly appreciat-
ed. No amount is too small because
it all helps to make this project suc-
cessful. If you would like to donate
please send your donation to:
Project Graduation 2006, Fort
Meade High School, P.O. Box
1001, Fort Meade, FL 33841.
On behalf of all the 2006 gradu-
ating seniors, their parents, and the
administration, we would like to
thank you for your support.,

For all that, even among those in
authority, a number believed in
Him, but would not acknowl-

banned from the synagogue.
For they valued their reputation
with men rather than the honor
which come from God.

Then the chief priests and the

Senior Citizen News
By Jim Walton

What a fabulous evening for all in attendance on March 9 at the
Catheryn McDonald Senior Center in Wauchula. It was a near perfect set-
ting again weather-wise, starry skies, beautiful moon and a gentle breeze
swaying the tall palm trees. It was a true Southern night for romantic music
and dancing.
The band's performance was excellent, providing the audience with a
Mfhe combination of country western, love ballads, along with fine waltzes
d swing music of the 1940s. Numbers were done in remembrance of
untry artists Red Foley, Hank Williams and Gene Autry. Romantic num-
rs were played in gratitude for the evening moon. They were "Moon
Over Miami" and "Allegheny Moon.".
The band then did some hit numbers of the 1950s and 1960s in honor
Patsy Cline, Vaughn Monroe, Patty Page and Perry Como, just to name
few. The band then closed out the evening's events with sing-alongs and
jimming. The evening mystery number was guessed this time. It was a song
t of the 1940s, 'That's My Desire."
Our next gathering at the center will be today (Thursday) at 7 p.m. This
ill be real special! All Irish in honor of St. Patrick. The Three Notes Band
l ad guitarist Bill Hartigan, from the Oasis RV Park in Zolfo Springs, will
sing old Ireland's traditional ballads with raw-bone Irish brogue. So please
dome and enjoy this night of entertainment. Be sure and wear green! There
will be contests and door prizes.
We appreciate the management at the center for their marvelous coop-
eration, and also all who helped set up.




Rise & Shine

By Ted Simonson

STRANGERS AMONG US
Relationships in America are taking a beating. The result: millions are
walking around among us disconnected and lonely. They exchange greet-
ings with us. They chat around the water cooler. They even get married and
have children. But they feel like strangers and observers.
Years ago, our country was mostly rural. There were plenty of strong
relationships because family members and neighbors worked together to
produce food, clothing and shelter.
! The Industrial Revolution moved families into the cities to work in fac-
tories. Fathers, especially, were drawn out of the homestead and fields to
spend much time away from growing families.
Later, there was another big change and people moved to the suburbs
apd a higher standard of living. This created a demand for a "two-income
mily." Mom followed Dad into the work force, leaving the kids a day care
alone at home.
Some studies have estimated that the spouses of these families spend an
erage of four minutes a day with each other. Time with the kids? Five
Minutes daily!.
Time working beside Dad in the workshop and beside Mom in the
Kitchen have been replaced by computers, TV, books, videos and class-
rioms.
o The enemy of our souls has deceived us into believing that financial
tin is more'important than relationships. More people than ever are expe-
encing a high standard of living but are looking across the breakfast table
strangers.
What can be done about this situation? Well, some are "biting the bul-
1 t" and have given up the second income (which seldom adds as much as
expected to the bottom line). Mom has come home.
An increasing number of families are home schooling and running
home based businesses. It's tough, but it's an attempt to bring the family
beck together again so that solid relationships can be established.
"'There's'anotheraspect ofitll this that is seldom noticed, and that is our
relationship with God. When the family is broken up, our relationship with
the Lord is damaged too. When God is marginalized, people pay a bitter
price. Five minutes a day doesn't cut it in a marriage -or with our Maker
other. We end us shallow and unsatisfied.
Augustine said, "0 Lord, thou has made us for they self and we are
stless till we rest in thee."
Life.is not about money or fame. It's about relationships. They are cost-
and time consuming, but they are worth it!

A pair of Hardee juniors took
honors in last weekend's Heartland
Conference Tennis Tournament.
Josh Ready soared to the top in
the boys number one singles and
exchange student Stephanie Knauer
claimed the girls number five sin-
gles title.
For Ready, the Heartland win
capped a successful week which
began with his singles and doubles
wins over Lake Placid last Tuesday.
This week, the regular schedule
resutned, with the Wildcats hosting
the Sebring Blue Streaks in boys-
only action on Monday. On
Tuesday, both the girls and boys
squads travel to Braden River and
on Friday, they both go to Lemon
Bay.
There are two road matches next
week and then there is Spring
Break. Next Monday, both Hardee
teams go to Palmetto and on
Tuesday the girls travel to Port
Charlotte.
Last week, the Hardee boys out-
lasted Lake Placid 4-3 on a sunny,
breezy Tuesday.
"Behind 3-2 in the team score at
the beginning of doubles, both
Hardee doubles teams lost the first
set. But both fought back, winning
the second set and taking the dou-
bles matches in the 10-point
tiebreaker played in place of the
. third set. All of the matches were
close and could have gone either
way," said coach Ken Leupold.
"We've been working a lot on the
mental part of tennis. There were
some good spurts of good mental
tennis during the matches today,"
concluded Leupold.
Hardee won the number one and

Anatomy Of An Auto Policy
By: Scott Hardcastle
State Farm agent


Picture this scenario: A woman leaves her car
securely locked and safely parked on a quiet side
street. But the unexpected happens. When she
returns, her car is severely damaged.
This scenario has a happy ending. After the
initial shock, she calls her insurance agent. The
agent guides the woman through the claim
process and explains that her car policy's colli-
sion coverage will pay the cost, after the
deductible is met, to repair her car.
Why insurance?
State laws require owners and drivers of motor
vehicles to be financially responsible for dam-
ages they cause in a car accident. Insurance sat-
isfies this requirement. In addition, optional cov-
erages are available that can further reduce your
risk of significant financial loss from a car crash,
even if it is not your fault.
Types of coverage available
There are various types of coverage available
when purchasing an Auto insurance policy.
Liability: Pays damages for bodily injury to
others and damage to property that result from a
wreck that is caused by an insured under your
policy. Also pays for other costs including legal
defense and court fees in the event an insured is
sued because of a car wreck.
Collision: Pays for damage, after a
deductible is met, to your insured car when it
strikes, or is struck by, another vehicle or object.
Comprehensive: Pays for damage to your
insured car that was not caused by a collision.
Some examples include damage caused fire,
wind, hail, flood, vandalism, theft, or impact


with an animal.
Medical Payments Coverage: Pays the rea-
sonable and necessary medical expenses for an
insured that is injured in a car crash, regardless of
who is at fault for the wreck.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Pays dam-
ages to an insured that is injured in a car crash
caused by a driver who does not have liability
insurance.
Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Pays
damages to an insured that is injured in a car
crash when the persons) responsible for the
wreck accident has insufficient liability insur-
ance to fully compensate the insured for the
injury.
Car Rental Expense: Pays eligible rental car
expenses if your car is not drivable because of a
loss which would be payable under Collision
Coverage or Comprehensive Coverage.
Emergency Road Service: Pays for items
such as towing expenses, the cost to deliver gaso-
line, and specified labor charges to unlock your
car if the key is locked inside the car. r
When shopping for insurance, it's important to
look at more than the total cost. Become familiar
with the amount and type of coverage that is
being offered. Also, note what isn't being cov-
ered, who is covered while driving your vehicle
and the quality of customer service in the event
of an accident. And always remember to make
sure the company you're insured by is financial-
ly strong.
The bottom line is that you should understand
your policy and buy the amount of insurance you
think you need. Paid advertisement 3:16c

By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Commission
on Friday discussed land develop-
ment regulations concerning minor
subdivision plats, which have five
or fewer parcels.
Of particular impoiuance are
drainage and roads.
"The plans need to be certified
not to adversely affect surround-
ings properties regarding drainage
and public right of way," said
County Manager Lex Albritton.
In Ag-1 zoning five acres is
required for a house, along with
200 feet of public road frontage.
Commissioners Gordon Norris
and Minor Bryant recalled how
Golfview Estates near Zolfo
Springs appeared to be high and
dry when platted for the subdivi-
sion, but proved to have major
drainage problems and cost the
county a lot of money to try to fix.
Albritton said land zoned Farm-
Residential requires one acre of
land for a house plus 100 feet of
public road frontage.
He said people are abusing the L-


1.15 provision that allows for a
family member to build a home on
2 1/2 acres in A-1 zoning. "Some
people are circumventing the five-
acre rule and not building a house.
An L-1.15 has no road frontage
requirement."
Albritton also noted one county
road is one-lane only and allows no
room for an oncoming vehicle to
pass due to poles and a ditch along
the narrow road. Commissioners
agreed such a road is not a candi-
date to serve a minor subdivision.
Commissioners discussed wheth-
er a road to a subdivision should be
paved.
Hardee building official Mike
Cassidy said the county needs a
planning department and an engi-
neering department.
The commission also discussed
cleaning up property damaged by
the hurricanes and mowing vacant
lots that are grown up. Some aban-.
doned cars are also an eyesore.
The county can clean up proper-
ty and send the property owner a
bill and then file a lien if not paid.
County attorney Ken Evers said it


is often hard to collect liens, if the
property has a big mortgage or two
on it.
Several real estate people attend-
ed the meeting and expressed con-
cern over too many stipulations on
land sales and subdividing parcels.
The commission agreed to
instruct county -staff to update land
development regulations for a
future public hearing, .
The commission is concerned
that people not build homes in low
areas and have major flooding
issues during a 50- or 100-year
rainy season. Polk County has sev-
eral housing areas that are subject
to flooding during heavy rainy sea-
sons.
The next total solar eclipse
viewable in the U.S. won't occur
until Aug. 21, 2017. Its path of
totality will stretch from Oregon
to South Carolina.
The Star-SpangledBannerwas
designated the national anthem
by Act of Congress in 1931, 117
years after it was written.

Telling The Truth ...
By J. Adam Shanks
Preacher


SPRING IS IN THE AIR!
I love spring! This time of year just reminds me of how great our God
really is! The Creator of the universe and our world gave our world a time
of renewal and a*time where things are born again!
It is easy to see where I am going with this. Not only did God give the
world a chance to be born again, He also did the same with us.
It's an interesting story in the Bible where Jesus talks about being born
again. It is found in John 3, where a Jewish scholar comes and speaks to
Jesus at night. This scholar knew that going to talk to Jesus could be detri-
mental to his career, so he sneaks over to Jesus at night and acknowledges
the superiority of such a great teacher as Jesus Christ. Jesus then starts to
teach this man, with the comment that "unless one is born again, he cannot
see the kingdom of God."
What a strange statement! I don't know what time of year this was but
I like to Imagine that it was the time of year where blossoms are just com-
ing otit and the trees were newly budding. Jesus looks at this man and says
you have to be renewed.
Now, it is easy to understand this Jewish man's response when he ques-
tions, "How can a man be born again? Can he enter a second time into his
mother's womb and be born again?" I do not detect any sarcasm in this
man's questions. I think that he genuinely wants to understand.
| Jesus' response is vague, but easy to understand when we look at other
Scriptures. He answers, "Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he can-
not enter the kingdom of God." Jesus refers to the watery baptism that is for
remission of sins. He refers to the role of the Holy Spirit that we receive
when we are baptized into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy
Spirit (Matt. 28:20; Acts 2:38). He refers to the immersion that we receive
when we are accepting Christ and His regeneration or renewal (Titus 3:5).
We must, as Jesus stated, be born again if we are to see the kingdom of
God. And that is what we all want to see. No mater how beautiful the sea-
son of spring is, it will not compare to the glory of the kingdom of God. I'm
Telling the Truth!

WEATHER SUMMARY
Most areas of the State received no rainfall, increasing the use of crop
irrigation, during the week of March 6 through 12. Only Ft. Lauderdale,
Kenansville, Live Oak, Marianna, Pensacola and Umatilla reported traces
of rain for the week. The potential for wild fires increased, especially over
the central and southern Peninsula. Temperatures hovered near normal in
most major cities with daytime highs in the 70s and 80s. Pensacola highs
for the week averaged 7 degrees above normal. Nighttime lows averaged in
the 40s, 50s and 60s with some Panhandle and northern localities recording
at least one low in the 30s.
FIELD CROPS
The dry, clear conditions spurred land preparations for field crop
planting in the Panhandle and northern Peninsula. In Jackson County, corn,;
planted earlier is up to a good stand and small grains are growing well.
Corn planting is active in Suwannee County with growers irrigating plant-
ings. Sugarcane harvesting is slowing seasonally around Lake Okeechobee;'
with some mills already closed. Most localities reported short to adequate-
soil moisture supplies. St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties reported a few
spots with very short soil moisture.

VEGETABLES
The dry conditions allowed planting and harvesting to proceed at a
rapid pace. Producers started setting watermelons in Suwannee County.
Cabbage growers increased cutting to meet the St. Patrick's Day demand.
Other vegetables and non citrus fruit marketed during the week included
snap beans, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, escarole, lettuce, parsley,.
peppers, radishes, squash, strawberries, sweet corn and tomatoes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition is poor to excellent. Small grains
are responding to moderate temperatures and growing well. Grass growth
is held back in some locations by drought. In the north and central areas,
pasture condition is poor to good with drought the limiting factor. Over
seeded-.small'grain'forage is growing.. In the southwest,.pasture condition is

CITRUS
Above average daily temperatures were recorded for the week of March 6
through 12, with most areas recording at least one day in the mid 80s. The
highest temperatures were in the south at over 86 degrees. No rainfall was
recorded for the week in any citrus producing counties. The warm temper- '
atures and lack of precipitation encouraged growers to continue daily irri-.'
gation. Topping, hedging, fertilizing and spraying is taking place after har-
vest. Bloom is progressing well with some trees showing a bouquet bloom
and some trees just beginning to form bloom buds. Feathery new growth is'
evident on trees in well-cared-for groves. Early midseason harvest has,
begun to wind down and processors are reporting only a few million boxes
left for harvest. Valencia harvesting is underway, but still running behind.,:
last year's weekly levels. Grapefruit harvesting is still strong with about,
two thirds of the weekly totals going to processing. Honey tangerine ha vest
is holding steady at over one-hundred thousand boxes weekly, while
Temple harvesting continues to be nominal.

JV Cats Add TwinWins


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee junior varsity
Wildcats pocketed a pair of wins
last week.
The young Cats beat both Lake
Placid and DeSoto to up their
record to 5-1.
This week, it's another pair of
games. Tuesday, the team went to
Palmetto for a 6 p.m. encounter.
Tomorrow (Friday), the junior var-
sity game is a 4:30, the opener of a
double-header at home against vis-
iting Sebring. The varsity squads
play the nightcap at 7 p.m.
Next week Hardee goes to
Frostproof on Tuesday for a 6:30
p.m. game. On Wednesday, there is
the junior varsity-varsity home
double-header against St. Albans of
Washington, D. C. during its spring
tour. The JV game is a 4:30.
Other games coming up this
month are March 28 at Lake Placid
and March 31 at Avon Park.
The game against Lake Placid at
home last week was moved up
from Thursday to Monday due to
the Green Dragon exam schedule.

runs in the second inning on a hit
batter, pair of walks and an erior. It
was 4-1. Hardee was retired despite

Rodgers was hit by a pitch. All of
them scored on a combination of a

THE CHAMP
Until three years ago, when my son Kyle got involved in wrestling, I
had no idea how popular a sport high-school wrestling is. Hardee High
School has no wrestling team nor did any college I attended, so what little
I knew about it I learned from Dusty Rhoades, Hulk Hogan and Rick Flair.
Therefore, when I attended Kyle's first tournament, I was startled at the
good sportsmanship, cool-headed courage, fair play and the lack of kicking,
stomping, gouging, throwing one's opponent over the ropes and out of the
rink onto a concrete floor or cracking heads with metal chairs.
Legitimate wrestling doesn't happen in a rink bordered with ropes, but
on padded mats laid out on gymnasium floors. The gym at Manatee High
School in Bradenton, which hosted the tournament I attended a couple
weekends ago, kept four matches going simultaneously from 10 in the
morning till 5 in the afternoon: two on each end of the gym and two in the
huge upstairs balcony. Contestants ranged from kindergarten age to high-
school seniors. It's been a long time since I've seen anything as cute as
those little 5-year-olds dressed in full wrestling regalia and head gear, try-
ing to pin each other's shoulders to the mat.
Wrestling requires patience as well as strength and skill and lightning
reflexes, because one can wait as long as an hour between matches. Who
wrestles who is determined by age and weight and a complex process of
elimination.
The uniforms all the wrestlers wore were alike in design if not color.
Skin tight, they go to mid-thigh and cover the upper body with thin straps
over the shoulders like old-fashioned undershirts. Kyle's uniform was
almost identical to a swimsuit worn by a very young F. Scott Fitzgerald in
a photo of the writer frolicking on a beach with wife Zelda.
Before his first match Kyle walked over to where 1 sat, in a chair by
the scorekeeper. Looking at his tall, lean, muscular physique without an
ounce of fat, I experienced a deep surge of pride and at the same time an
intense, throat-tightening regret that my little boy had grown up so fast.
Almost overnight, it seemed, he had transformed from a bouncing baby
boy into an intelligent, powerful, confident young man three inches taller
than his mother and gaining fast on his father. His brawn is balanced by
humility and sensitivity and a keen intelligence. Approaching his 14th
birthday, an eighth grader at Lincoln Middle School, he made straight A's
the first quarter and all A's except for one B the second.
I stood up as he approached me and he looked me in the eye, his gaze
steady, his hazel eyes clear and sharp and focused. He held out his hand and
gave me a firm handshake. I hugged him and wished him luck.
He pinned his opponent in minutes, winning the match as he won every
match he wrestled that day.
He won first place twice, once in his own weight division and again in
a heavier weight group which he had asked to wrestle in, adding two more
medals to a collection already large enough to decorate a Christmas tree.
After the tournament he came home with me to go to Pioneer Park Days.
Wrestling is a draining activity and he fell asleep on the drive home,
but as I pulled into the garage his eyes snapped open and he was instantly
awake and ready to go.
I had to take him back to Bradenton that same evening, but what's
another 100-mile round trip for the honor of spending time with The
Canip..

Cats Split




Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee varsity Wildcats won
one and lost one last week.
The Cats went to Lemon Bay on
Thursday night and came home
with a come-from-behind 4-2 vic-
tory. On Friday, at home against
district rival DeSoto, it was a dif-
ferent story as Hardee came out on
the short end of a 3-2 game.
This week there is a trio of home
games, Tuesday vs. district rival
Palmetto, Wednesday when
Lakeland High comes to call and
Friday evening hosting Sebring in a
double-header with the junior var-
sity start at 4:30.
Next week, Hardee host'
Frostproof on Tuesday and St.
Albans of Washington D. C. on
Wednesday during its annual spring
break trip to Central Florida. The
week ends with a Friday trip to yet
another district rival Sarasota
Booker.
By the end of last week, the Cats
had moved to 10-2, including a pre-
season 4-1 record. They had been
undefeated in the regular season
until the loss to DeSoto and are
now 6-1, 3-1 in district play.

team," said head coach Steve
Rewis.
Both squads were three up, three
down in the first inning, Basey
gaining two of his strikeouts. In the
second inning Brad Gilliard singled
to right field but was stranded.
Lemon Bay went another one, two,
three.
Hardee was limited to three bat-
ters in the top of the third. Lemon
Bay got on the board with a leadoff
solo homer by Ryan Brew. The next
three batters went down in order.
The game rocked along for the
fourth and fifth innings, a Briant
Shumard hit in the fifth gomg for
naught.
Hardee broke loose in the top of
the sixth. Catcher Justin Altman
singled to right center, Weston
Palmer was hit by a pitch and Will
Krause singled. An error, walk, and
another hit by Gilliard plated the
first three batters.
Hardee was up 3-1. Aston Beyer
singled for Lemon Bay in the home
half of the inning. Trying to steal
second, he was nailed by a perfect
Altman to Palmer throw and the
next batter flied out to end the
inning.
Hardee got an insurance run in
the top of the seventh. With two
down, Krause singled and raced
home on a long Lance Benavides
single. It was 4-1.
In the bottom of the final inning.
Corey Phillips doubled. A sacrifice
fly moved him to third. A' Casey
Hannihan single broughtV him
home. Two quick fly-outs ended
the game.

:#20 James Basey
After a few days layoff from the
previous Friday, the Wildcats trav-
eled down to Englewood to take on
Class 4A rival Lemon Bay on
Thursday night. Senior James
Basey pitched the full game "in his
,best outing of the year" and earned
,game honors. He faced 24 batters in
*seven innings, scattered four hits,
had no walks or hit batters and
struck out four.
"We played really good defense
and scored three runs in the sixth
inning to go ahead. James gave up
only one run in the seventh to give
us a quality win against a quality


#42 Robbie Abbott
Senior Robbie Abbott topped the
Wildcat effort with its only scores,
a solo homer and single. Pinch run-
ner Remington Adams scored for
Abbott on the second hit.

Lance Benavides opened on the'
mound for the Wildcats. An error
allowed one runner, who was
stranded on third. Hardee also left
Beriavides' pinch runner Adams:
aboard in the home half of the first.
DeSoto got its first run in the sec-
ond inning as Matt Heine singled to
left field and sprinted home on a
Dustin Orr hit which seemed to be
a double play. Officials ruled the
fielder missed second base as he
swiped by and the throw to first
was a bit late. The runner was
caught in a run-down between first
and second, but Heine alertly stole
home in the process.
Gilliard was safe on an error, and
designated hitter Cody Gullatt sin-
gled to right field, but both were
stranded.
DeSoto picked up an insurance
run in the top of the third. Caden
Cross fouled off several pitches
before singling to left field. He
stole second, went to third on a sac-
rifice and came home on an error
on a Daniel Price hit. It was 2-0.
An Orr hit left him stranded in
the top of the fourth. Abbott cut the
lead in half with his fourth inning
solo homer over the right center
field fence. It was 2-1.
In the top of the fifth, Krause and
Benavides switched positions and
the Bulldogs went down in order,
as did the Wildcats. The top of the
fifth was another one, two, three
Bulldog outing.
Hardee got going in the bottom
of the sixth. Krause couldn't beat
out a grounder, and Benavides flirt-
ed with a homer in deep right field.
With two away, Abbott singled to
left field and Adams went in to
pinch run. A Shumard walk moved
Adams to second and he raced
home on a Gilliard hit. A strikeout
left two runners stranded, but it was
a tie game 2-2.
DeSoto wasn't ready to quit. Orr
singled up the middle and tried to
go to second when Dalton Day
struck out, but was caught before
he got there. With two down,

THE Y
.* ` SOWER

Michael A.Guido
Mentter, Georgia


Mary loved church, but her
sister didn't. One day Mary said,
"Let's play church." "All right,"
answered her sister, "but let's
play I'm absent."
Too many do. But the Living
Bible says, "Let us not neglect our
church meetings, as some people
do."
Going to church doesn't make
you a Christian any more than
going to a garage makes youian
automobile. But if you're' a
Christian, you'll love God's house
and God's book.
You'll read up, pray up, sing up,
and never give up or shut up until
the cause of Christ is built up.
Too many church members-
hear without heeding, read with-
out responding, profess without

practicing, and confess without
changing.


This young catcher Is lookingat the batter who is next on deck. He is
probably wondering ifhe is a good bitter. Likewise, the batter on deck has
been waiting for his turn, feeling anxious, getting warmed up, and trying
to "feel" his swing. Finally, it is his turn and as he approaches the batter's
box, he looks at his coach for final instructions.
The scenario of life is similar. To live with confidence we must trust
God's hand as He guides us through each day. Though unseen, God is our
coach. If we have carefully practiced our batting, wewill "feel" a good hit.
2 Corinthians 3:5 tells us, "Notthatweare competent in ourselves to
claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God."
Our "playbook" is the Bible. Practice is each week at your chosen
house ofworship. We are part of a team that performswith confidence,
for we know God has us "next on deck".

time. The next dance is Saturday

asking for volunteers to set up the
tables for the dances in November
and December and to organize the
New Year's Dance, as she does not
come until January. All the bands
have been booked.
BINGO
The paper specials on March 3

just like to win a small bingo.

his nephew, Peter Clark, who is a

who has traveled to about 75 for-
eign countries. He spoke of the pro-
gram he is presently involved with
in Africa, which was very interest-
ing.
The sacrament of Holy Com-
munion was observed. Prayers were
offered by Rev. Don Merillat and

Welcome to our newest Lake
Dale residents, Joe, Ashleigh and

Questions and laughter about "who

conversation lively. All had a great

GO FOR THE "GREEN"
Yes, green and St. Patrick's Day go together! But, instead of thinking
about wearing green, think about eating green this St.. Patrick's Day and
throughout the year. The national 5-a-Day campaign advises to "Go Green.
Go Healthy."
Green fruits and vegetables contain many health-pronioting phyto-
chemicals including lutein and indoles. These potent antioxidants help pro-
tect against certain cancers and help maintain vision health and strong
bones and teeth.
Some examples of green fruits and vegetables include avocados, green
grapes, honeydew melons, kiwi fruit, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, green
beans, green cabbage, leafy greens, lettuce, peas, green pepper and spinach.
For additional green fruit and vegetable sources, check the 5-a-day fruit and
vegetable website at www.5aday.com.
Some "green" food ideas for St. Patrick's Day or any day include:
Eat a tossed lettuce salad and add extra green with green peppers.
Enjoy cabbage in coleslaw and add some chopped crispy green
Granny Smith apples for a nice flavor.
Of course, corned beef with cabbage is a natural for St. Patrick's
Day!
Include some kiwi fruit in your fruit salad for a touch of green; or
glazed kiwi over a sponge/angel food cake. For tips on preparing kiwi and
some recipes, again, check the 5-a-day website at www.5aday.com.
Add some frozen green peas to a soup mixture or to chicken and
pasta recipes.
Add avocado slices to salads and sandwiches. To maintain avocados'
green color, eat them immediately or sprinkle them with lemon or lime
juice. Through two tablespoons of avocado have about 5 grams of fat, it's
mostly heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. For tips on choosing and prepar-
ing avocados plus recipes, again, choose the 5-a-Day website listed above.
Enjoy your favorite dip in combination with broccoli florets and
other vegetables. Try adding two additional greens: chives and dill.
Try spinach noodles with your topping of choice; or spinach souffle;
spinach omelet; cream of broccoli or spinach soup; or finely diced spinach
in any chicken noodle or rice soup.
Add green vegetables to pizza, such as chopped green bell pepper,
chopped chives, chopped green onions or chopped green olives.
Whatever green vegetables and fruits you decide to add to your daily
menus, remember you are adding vitally healthy nutrients to your diet. Your
body will ultimately benefit from these phytochemicals such as lutein and
indoles, so choose to "go for the green" everyday and enjoy the benefits of
these health-promoting nutrients!
By the way, "Happy St Patrick's Day!"

Pearsall, Dale and Linda Brewer,

Freda's Foibles
By Freda B. Douglas .



This is the day. God has made. We shall rejoice and be glad in it.

God has been so good to me. Sure, I've had some difficulties in my life
and great sadness, but God has seen me through each trying time. For
instance, Saturday is my 73rd birthday, and despite everything I am able to
sit up and take nourishment, work every day (if I want to and, therefore,
don't always) and I'm able to read my daily devotionals and thank God for
allowing me to wake to another day. Would that all of you could be so for-
tunate.

In case some of my readers might wonder, my cat, Jewely, is still alive
and well. She is about 6 and finally, seemingly, has learned something. She
has always been and possibly will always be an outdoor cat. Now, howev-
er, when I let her out and tell her I don't want her to stay long, if I remem-
ber to leave the door ajar so she can come in on her own, she comes in,,
mostly within the hour. Normally she comes into the office to let me know
she is in. But if I am involved and don't go directly to close the door, when
I do I'll find her sitting on the porch, thus telling me I didn't close the door
when I should have.

I wonder about the postal service in Florida. Seems to me the higher the
postage, the slower the service. I sent a package to Australia on Dec. 2 and
I got an e-mail from the recipient on Jan. 8 telling me the package had just
arrived. The package wasn't important and I've never been to Australia, so
it could have taken that long. But I had a new downline in California and I
sent her a box about the size of a shoebox and it took a month to get there.
I have been to California and, believe it or not, California is part of the con-
tiguous United States.
Lately I have had reasons to send out media packs through the U.S.
Postal Service. I called a lady in Bradenton today to discuss her media pack,
which was mailed on Feb. 21, and she doesn't have it yet. Sad commentary,
I know, but unfortunately so very true.

Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.

May you have a blessed week, and if you see a stranger be sure to
extend the glad hand of fellowship. Remember, God loves you, and you,
and so do I..

Motocross Racer Moves To Hardee County


By MICHAEL KELLY
For The Herald-Advocate
A local teenager is making his
mark in motocross racing.
Gene Capica Jr., 13, along with
his parents Gene Sr. and Monica
Capica, have recently moved to
Hardee County from North Port.
The family is currently building a
house in the New Zion area.
Gene started riding dirt bikes
when he was five years., old on an
XR50. He said from that day on, he
has loved riding his bikes. He has
since owned five bikes. Now he
rides an 85cc and races with the
Florida Trail Riders.
The Florida Trail Riders (FTR)
are composed of over 2,500 mem-
bers throughout the state. They
hold 11 races a year all over the
state, with about 900 racers show-
ing up at each event. Gene has been
racing with the FTR for the past
three years.
The races are designed to test the
endurance of the riders. The course
is usually laid out in a woody envi-
ronment with trails running through
the trees. Each lap is about eight
miles long, with the racers running
four laps for a total of 32 miles. The
course takes the participants about
one and a half hours to complete.
Currently, the Hardee Junior
High eighth grader sits on top of
the standings for the 2006 champi-
onship.for the, FTR Association.
Gene said, "As long as I keep fin-
ishing the way I have been, I will
win the championship in my class."
The most recent race was held at
Gatorback Cycle Park in
Gainesville where Gene won first
place, beating the second-place fin-
isher by over a minute.
Since most of these races are so
far away the family usually travels
together and stays in their RV for


the weekend. The Capicas enjoy
staying at the race and socializing
with all the other riders. They say,
"It is a real family event and we
have a great time at every race."


Gene hopes that one day he can
get sponsored and be able to make
racing his career, but for now is
focusing on winning the FTR 2006
championship.

After Thoughts
By C.J. Mouser


COFFEE MUGGED
I took my daughters camping over the weekend novice campers all
... roughing it in the elements.
Since there was no rain in the forecast, we left the optional roof canopy
off the tent so we could look at the stars. We went to bed near midnight and
slept until about 6:30 a.m., when I woke half-frozen and soaking wet. At
some point Jenny, my youngest, abandoned the tent in favor of the truck. I
discovered this when I stirred around shivering and moaning and Jill woke
up complaining.
"I'm cold! And wet!" she whined.
The temperature had dropped overnight, and as I lay there trying to fig-
ure out where I went wrong, I heard it.
Drip. Drip. Drip.
It was dew. A heavy one.
"Coffee," I croaked, "that'll thaw us out. C'mon, let's get a fire going."
We stumbled around in the pre-dawn darkness, fumbling for damp
wood and searching for dry paper. The sun was just starting to peek out by
the time I got the percolator ready and settled onto the fire. We huddled

under blankets in companionable silence, staring at the little pot ... wait-
ing.
"You know," I said to Jill, "they say a watched pot never boils."
"Yeah, but you also say that 'they' don't always know what they're talk-
ing about."
"That's true ... but in this case I think they were right, so stop looking
at it."
OK, it was a tad bit superstitious, but I was freezing my rear-end off
and needed my coffee. Now.
"Mom, look at the pot."
"No. And I told you not to look at it," I said, focusing on the sun com-
ing up over the lake.
"But Mom, it looks like it wants to tip over."
I immediately dismissed the superstition and stared at the pot. It did
look like it was tilting a little. I thought about it for a second, realized that
if the pot turned over it would put out the fire and we would have to start
all over. About the time I came to that conclusion, the coffee pot tipped over
and put the fire out.
I immediately said a few choice words, and Jill remarked on our lack
of intelligence.
"It was pretty dumb to just sit here and let the coffee pot turn over and
put out the fire. Why didn't you grab it?"
By then the smoke was about to choke us to death and I had lost my
patience.
"Well, in the first place, I really didn't think it was going to tip over,
and the handle was hot and I didn't have anything to grab it with. Why did-
n't you grab it?"
She was silent for a few seconds, and then ...
"What you said."
So, we started over; relit the fire and refilled the percolator. This time
I used less coffee, as I was now living with the fear that if it had dumped
once, it could dump again. Fifteen minutes later the coffee was boiling and
perking and filling both of us with joy and anticipation. I dribbled the pre-
cious liquid into Jill's cup, at which point she wrinkled her nose and blinked
at me.
"What?"
"It looks like creek water."
I glanced into her cup, and it was true. It looked, and ultimately tasted,
like hot brown water. Apparently in my nervous state, I had been too stingy
with the coffee. We had waited 15 minutes for coffee that was too weak to
do anybody any good.
If you say a word, Jill..."
"Well, Mom! I could have driven to town by now and brought us back
a gallon of coffee..."
"No! We're going to have coffee made over our fire! That's what camp-
ing is all about. We're roughing it."
This time I put in half the amount of water, and twice the amount of
coffee. We waited the allotted 15 to 20 minutes, and ultimately what came
out of the pot was a rich brew that would make any mountain man glow
with pride. I imagined Juan Valdez standing there in his sombrero and ser-
ape, clutching the reins to his mule and beaming at us.
By now it was 8 a.m. Jenny emerged from the truck like a drowsy but-
terfly out of a cocoon, the warmth of sleep emanating off of her in waves.
"Mmm," she said with a tender smile. "Fresh coffee." She held out her
cup, then took a sip and grimaced. "Does anybody else's taste like it has dirt
in it?"
Jill snorted and I shot her a look that would curdle milk
The air was fresh and crisp, and the lake birds were winging across the
water, with the sky glowing orange and red behind them. We crouched
around the fire drinking our ashy, dirty coffee while the sun began to bum
off the dew.
Despite everything, it was the best cup of coffee I think I ever had.


NEW TAX BREAKS IN THE NEW YEAR
Exciting new tax savings in 2006 include credits on buying a hybrid
car, home energy-saving tax credits, the introduction of Roth 401(k)'s and
much more. So, do something good for the environment, save more for
retirement or give a larger gift to a loved one and you may also benefit with :
a sizable tax break. It's a win/win way to approach a new year of spending.
Buy AHybrid
If you bought a hybrid gas-electric car in 2005, you could claim a
deduction of up to $2,000. However, if you buy a hybrid in 2006, you are
eligible for a tax credit of up to $3,400. (In general, credits are more valu-
able than deductions because they represent a dollar-for-dollar reduction in
your tax bill, as they are subtracted directly from the money you owe the
IRS. Further, you don't have to itemize to claim them.)
But if you want the estimated $3,150 credit on a Prius, or any other car
from Toyota or its Lexus unit, you better move fast. Because of rules link-.
ing credits to an automaker's overall hybrid sales, credits for Toyota hybrids
will likely be halved at the end of September, according to the December
"Money" magazine.
It is important to note that the hybrid car credits vary a lot, and some
very fuel-efficient vehicles get no credits at all. In some cases, though, the
credits may be large enough to almost entirely make up for the additional.
cost of the hybrid as compared to a non-hybrid.
For estimated tax breaks on different vehicles, visit the Web site of the
American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (aceee.org/transporta-
tion/taxcredits06.pdf). The IRS will release official credit amounts for qual-
ifying vehicles when available.
Home Energy
Thanks to the Energy Tax Incentives Act of 2005, you can claim a tax
credit for energy-saving measures such as energy-efficient fixtures and.
appliances; for example, central air conditioners, new insulation or exterior
doors and windows. This tax break is limited to home improvements during
2006 and 2007.
It is important to note that the credit for eligible home improvements,
such as new insulation and external doors, is generally 10 percent of the
cost, though for some items, the credit is a flat amount (up to a lifetime max-
imum of $500). So if you take a credit of $300 on energy-saving improve-
ments in 2006, the most you could take in 2007 is $200. There are also
lower caps on specific improvements, but you can use a combination of:
improvements to reach the $500 maximum. For more information, go to-
www.energytaxincentives.org.
Gift Tax
You may have made your $11,000 in tax-free gifts before the end of
2005. Now you may make the gifts even larger, as the annual exclusion
increased in 2006 to $12,000. So feel good about giving to family and
friends, and consider giving more than ever before, especially if you may be
subject to estate taxes. Remember that couples can combine gifts, totaling
up to $24,000 per recipient per year.
Roth 401(k) Plans
Starting with Jan. 1, employers have been able to offer Roth 401(k)
retirement accounts. This new product allows employees to save up to,
$15,000 per year (or $20,000 if you are age 50 or older) total contributions
in combination with any pre-tax 401(k) contributions made. The contribu-
tions come from after-tax salary deferral dollars, but the funds enjoy tax-,
free compounding and tax-free withdrawal of qualified distributions.
Seek Help
With so many new tax laws and new tools for saving available in,
2006, consider enlisting the help of a financial advisor to work with you to:
update or create a financial plan and map out your savings and tax strate-,
gies. -
