Local Men Candidates For Judgeships


Jail To





Add 72 Beds


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Sheriff Loran Cogburn got the
green light to proceed with jail
expansion.
The sheriff came to the recent
Hardee County Commission meet-
ing with an unusual request.
Cogburn asked commissioners to
approve his plan to add 72 beds at
the 15-year-old jail so he can bring
in even more revenue for housing
federal prisoners.
The jail presently has a 171-bed
capacity, but runs an average of 157
inmates due to restrictions of sepa-
rating different kinds of inmates.


Cogburn reported on a meeting
he, his chief assistant Col. Arnold
Lanier and Commissioner Dale
Johnson had recently with Tampa
federal officials which led to plan-
ning to take more federal inmates.
They want them near the federal
court in Tampa due to transporta-
tion.
Presently some are housed as far
away as Miami or Jacksonville.
There is no facility closer than
Hardee County which has room to
accept such inmates, most of which
are pending trial and need to appear
in court periodically.

Bensen Days Here Again


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
It's that time of year again, when
gyrocopters and ultra-lights take to
the skies around Wauchula!
The 36th annual Bensen Days,
Fly-In started yesterday (Wednes-
day) and will. last until Sunday,
April 2.
Anyone interested in seeing the
variety of gyrocopters, ultra-lights
or powered parachutes should defi-
nitely head out to the Wauchula
Municipal Airport five miles west
of Wauchula off Vandolah Road for
a unique air show.
The event's name comes from
Igor Bensen, who began modern
gyrocopter construction in the
1950s.
The Fly-In is run by Richard
Oxnam, who is president of the
Sunstate Rotor Club, the organiza-
tion that sponsors the event. He has
been in charge of the Fly-In for the
past four years.
Around 80 craft are expected to


be on site, with pilots from across
the world. Oxnam said that several
pilots from Japan will be attending,
as well as a few from England and
even Russia. Pilots get their craft
here with trailers similar to boat
trailers. *
At the airport there is plenty of
room for anyone wishing to make a
camp. There are electrical hookups
for RVs and 20 acres for those
wanting to bring tents and camp
out.
Two hot and cold water showers
are also on site, as well as a food
vendor.
In 1998, Bill Clem, a Denver
physician, set a world record here
by taking his gyrocopter 24,463
feet in the air. It was later verified
by the international aeronautical
board in France.
Flights will be taking place all
day long, and visitors who want to
have the wind in their hair can take
a ride, get pictures and chat with
the pilots.


Lawyer Seeks New Trial

For Imprisoned Trucker


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A judge here has ordered the
prosecution to respond to a defense
motion seeking a new trial for a
trucker imprisoned following a
crash which killed two people.
Circuit Judge Robert L. Doyel
issued his order on Wednesday
afternoon of last week in Hardee
Circuit Court.
In it, he denied one claim assert-
ed by defense lawyer John H.
Trevena of Largo, struck another
and directed the state to answer two
more. The State Attorney's Office
has 60 days to show cause why the
defendant, Jean-Claude Meus, is
not entitled to relief.
Meus, 42, of Sebring, was con-
victed of two counts of vehicular
homicide in August of 2003 for the
May 2001 deaths of 40-year-old
Nona Moore and her 8-year-old
daughter, Lindsey. Two other
daughters survived the night-time
crash at Seven-Mile Point on SR


64, when Meus' tractor-trailer over-
turned on Moore's mini-van, crush-
ing it.
The prosecution, led by Assistant
State Attorney John W. Kromholz,
asserted at' trial that Meus was
"maxed out" on his hours 10
within a 24-hour period and fell

Crews Case


Set Fo

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A trial date .has been set in Polk
County for a local man accused of
murder in the 2002 'disappearance
of a Bowling Green woman.
Thomas Jessie Crews Jr., 40, of
Zolf...Springs, -will go to trial in a .
Bartow courtroom beginning May
15. The jury trial is expected to last
two weeks.
Crews faces a second-degree
murder charge in the Oct. 10, 2002,
disappearance of 20-year-old Son-
dra Barrington. He has remained in
jail since his arrest on July 21,
2004, following a grand jury indict-
ment.
Barrington has not been seen nor
' heard from since, and her body has
never been found.
Circuit Judge J. Dale Durrance
put the case on the trial docket last
week despite a defense request for
more time to1 obtain additional
depositions.2 The judge said it was
time for the case to move forward.
The prosecution assured Durrance
it was ready to proceed!
"Our family is very pleased with
the judge's decision today," Shirley
Barrington, the alleged victim's
mother, said from outside the Polk
County Courthouse.,late last Wed-
nesday afternoon.
Sondra Barrington's mother and
father, Shirley and Floyd Barring-
ton, grandmother Earlene Coburn,
uncle David Howell and cousin
Margie Howell had traveled to
Bartow that morning for the pre-
trial hearing, waiting until the case
was finally called.
"I'm very well pleased," Shirley
Barrington said of the upcoming
trial date. "I was overflowing with
joy that it won't linger on any
longer. It's been going on long
enough."
Sondra Barrington clocked out of
her job at DeSoto Memorial
Hospital at 6:03 p.m. on Oct. 10,
2002. She never made it home.'
Her .car, a 1996 Kia Sephia, was
found abandoned on U.S. 17 in
DeSoto County, just two miles
short of the Hardee County line.
Her pursewas still inside.
Her mother said Sondra
Barrington was due to testify
against Crews in court the next day,
Oct. 11, 2002, regarding a domestic
complaint..
Maj. Claude Harris of the Hardee
County'Sheriff's Office said Crews
became a suspect in the disappear-
ance early on.
He said Tommy Crews and
Sondra Barrington had a "tumul-
tuous relationship." They shared
custody of their 3-year-old son, and'
resulting conflicts caused police to
be called more than a dozen times,
Harris said.
Following her disappearance,
authorities fr6m a number of agen-
cies searched three counties -
DeSoto, Hardee and Polk for
evidence and for Sondra Barring-
ton's' body.
"You're not required to have a

body to bring a murder charge in
the state of Florida when you have
other evidence, which we felt we
had," Sheriff J. Loran Cogburn said

after the grand jury's indictment.
But because the indictment does,
not allege which of the three coun-
ties was the murder scene, state law
allows the defendant to choose the
county in which the case will be,
tried.
Crews ,and Assistant Public
Defender J. Mel McKinley selected
Polk County.
In November, Circuit 'Judge
Robert ,L. Doyel, who currently
presides in Hardee Circuit Court,
ordered, the case moved to "Plk
County.
In December, Durrance was the
Polk judge assigned to the case.



EZELLE
Continued From 1A
Hospital Board.
Currently he is a Take Stock in
Children mentor and a board mem-
ber of Hardee Habitat For
Humanity.
Ezelle describes his judicial phi-
losophy as "simple, to give the par-
ties the respect they are due and to
follow the law."
He cited U.S. Chief Justice John
Roberts' statements that "nobody
ever went to the ball game to see
..the, umpire" and that "umpires
don't make the rules; they apply
them" as good judicial perspective.
Lakeland certified public
accountant David M. Touchton is
his campaign treasurer.
Ezelle said he thinks this is
"good timing" for his run for circuit
judge. He said he has been encour-
aged to run, and that he has good
support in the Polk and Highlands
legal. community. Hardee County
has about 10,500 registered voters,
while Highlands has nearly 59,000
and Polk 298,000 registered voters.
A circuit judge handles all felony
cases, trials, probate and juvenile
cases, civil cases over $15,000, and
hears mental health cases.
The qualifying period for candi-
dates for office is noon May 8 to
noon May 12.
Lakeland attorney Steven Selph,
a Polk County judge, has
announced he will run for circuit
judge for the seat currently held by
Judge Judith Flanders who is also
retiring at the end of this year.
Ezelle said Hardee County has
never had an elected circuit judge
or had a circuit judge live in the
county. Ezelle said, if elected, he
plans to continue living in Hardee
County.
Ezelle, a Democrat, had applied a
couple times recently to be appoint-
ed by Republican Gov. Jeb Bush to
a partial term of a circuit judge
when a judge retired in the 'district
but was ndt selected.

Commerce Park Gets "Big Pour"


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It took over 10 hours and 160
trucks to complete the job.
Pouring the foundation for the
68,000-square-foot SCOSTA Corp.
manufacturing company building at
Hardee. County Commerce Park
SAturday.is one of the largest con-
struction jobs around.
SCOSTA is the first of several
businesses 'already committed to
belonging in the .economic devel-
opment park founded by the county
in conjunction with its economic
development arm, the Industrial
Development Authority (IDA).
Saturday's start to filling the 160-
acre park with light manufacturing
and other businesses may have
been a record-setter. Lavon Cobb,
head of the construction company
completing the SCOSTA building,
said the 160 truckloads of concrete
came from Hardee, Highlands and
Polk counties.- "It. was Jahna
Concrete's largest pour in 57 years
iri.the construction-business," Cobb
'said. "I; believe it could be the
largest ever in Hardee County."
Directed by Freddie Jahna, it'
began about 3 a.m. and ""the pour of
over 1,500 yards went .very
smoothly., The' foundation is the.
first step in construction of the
state-of-the-art building for the ,
.metal truss manufacturing compa-
ny expanding to the county.
Company owner said Scott Stanley
said his son Scott will be manager
of the local plant.
A job fair will be held on May 22
at the Workforce Development
office on U.S. 17 South for poten-
tial employees.
Other companies already com-
mitted to moving to the commerce
park off SR 62 about a quarter mile
from U.S. 17 are Organix South
and Milano Tile. Negotiations are
under way with several others who
would like to move to the liew


HMtZUNE PLAN
An article in last week's
issue incorrectly said realtor
Dane Hendry had agreed to
rezoning of property on
Stenstrom Road from the
request R-3 to R-1. Actually, it
went from R-3 (multiple family-
affordable apartments) to R-3
(single family home on a lot at
least 75x100 square feet and
780 square feet of housing.)
R-1 is the most restricted sin-
gle housing code calling for
homes of at least 1,500
square feet.

"The 160-acre Commerce Park
recently completed is 'shovel
ready,' said IDA chairman Richard
Nicholson, who noted that 30 per-
cent of the park has been sold to
light manufacturing companies.
"The long-range goal is to create
200 new jobs and expand the indus-
trial park," he added.
Jama Abbott, another IDA board
member, said that following the
three hurricanes which devastated
Hardee County in 2004, the County
Commission stressed to its. eco-
nomic development office the need
for jobs to spearhead economic
recovery. "The Hardee County
Commerce Park was built as a
place where businesses could
come. We are looking for high
wage, high skill jobs for which
workers can be trained at the:South
Florida Community College which
is within a mile."
"With 3,500 new homes in the
planning and construction stages
around the county, the construction
industry .has targeted Hardee
County as a viable place to move or
expand their company," says a
press release from the county eco-
nomic development office.

asleep at the wheel, never braking
for the stop sign at the intersection,
knocking over reflector posts and
losing control before toppling onto
Moore's van.
Defense attorney J. Russell
"Rusty" Franklin of Bartow coun-
tered that Meus had not fallen
asleep, but had driven off the pave-
ment as an evasive maneuver after
a third unidentified vehicle sudden-
ly came toward him in his lane.
When Meus tried to get back onto
the highway, he lost control of the
truck and entered Moore's lane as
she drove back to Wauchula fol-
lowing a shopping trip in Sebring
with her children, Franklin said.
His trailer, filled with tomatoes
from Immokalee, rolled over onto
the minivan.
Jurors found Meus guilty as
charged.
At a September 2003 sentencing
hearing, Circuit Judge Charles B.
Curry imposed a 15-year prison
term, a downward departure from
state sentencing guidelines which
called for a sentence of at least 18-
1/2 years.
Meus appealed to the 2nd
District Court of Appeal in
Lakeland, but was denied. The
higher court issued its mandate in
January of 2005.
Following that, Tampa lawyer
Daniel F. Daly filed a motion with
Curry seeking another sentencing
hearing, presenting new testimony
from Moore's two sisters. Curry
granted the hearing in March of
2005, but denied Daly's motion to
mitigate Meus' sentence.
Meus.was sent to state prison.
Meanwhile, Trevena took up the
case, filing his motion to vacate
Meus' conviction and sentence in
December of 2005.
The first of his four claims is that
Meus was denied a fair trial
because the jury based its decision
on the two fatalities, rather than on
proof of the charges beyond a rea-
sonable doubt. Trevena argued that
one of the jurors later told a televi-
sion news reporter the jury decided
to convict because two deaths
resulted from the crash.


Doyel denied that' claim, citing
court policy and abundant case lav-
against' inquiring into jurors
thought processes. Then, Doye
referred to a ruling stating a jury
verdict may not be set aside basec
on an assumption "the verdict was,
a result of a mistake or that th6
juror misconceived the issues."
In his. second claim, Treven
alleges Meus suffered from ineffec
tive assistance'of counsel. He saic
Franklin failed to find and call wit,
nesses who were readily available
and could have refuted the state',
assertion that Meus was sleep
deprived, failed ,to obtain thd

judge said it was insufficient anc
vague, but allowed the defense 60
days to amend it to state a sufficier-t
claim for relief.
The fourth and final claim is thdt
either the state withheld evidence
which favored Meus or that there i,
newly discovered evidence or th
Franklin failed to find such favor
able evidence.
Doyel directed the state t4
respond.
The judge's ruling was filed wit i
the Clerk of Courts Office last
Wednesday afternoon, with copie,
sent to Trevena and the State
Attorney's Office.
The defense has 30 days to
appeal Doyel's order.


Hiding Friend Cause For Arrest


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A local man wanted in Polk
County was discovered in the
house of his friend, resulting in
charges for concealing him.
According to reports of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office,
John Everett McClenithan, of 111
N. 10th Ave., Wauchula, was found
Friday at the home of Paul Russell
Roberts of 3065 Magnolia St.,
Zolfo Springs.
Roberts initially denied
McClenithan was at his house, but
eventually let officers into the
home where they found the wanted
man hiding. Roberts, 50, was
arrested and charged with resist-
ing/obstructing an officer, a first-
degree misdemeanor.


Meanwhile, McClenithan wa
also taken into custody where
search revealed a folded bandana i
a pants pocket. A hypodermi
syringe and metal spoon used to
prepare and inject methampheta
mine were in the bandanf
McClenithan was charged wil
possession of drug paraphernalia,
first-degree misdemeanor.
The Polk County warrants for hi
arrest stem from alleged kidnap
ping of his girlfriend from her Foi
Meade home last Wednesday a
knifepoint. He reportedly held he
hostage in a Lakeland motel rooi
but returned her home on Thursda:
rhorning unharmed.
McClenithan, 39, faces felon'
charges of armed kidnapping bur
glary and aggravated assault-

"Katie Bryan, Emily Adams,
Miranda Powell, Kristin Robertson
and pitcher Jamie Buckley have all
been playing well," commented
Carver late last week.
The return from break pits

Fort Meade as the season finale on
April 13.
Class 3A District 10 playoffs are
at Palmetto starting April 17. Other
teams in the district are Avon Park,
Sarasota Booker, DeSoto, Sebring
and Braden River.
Backing up to March 16, the Cats
hosted visiting All Saints Academy,
which shut the Hardee girls down
16-0 with a combination of power
hitting and ball placement. Hardee
was held in check by a pitcher who
recorded 10 strikeouts, allowing
only Adams and Danielle Hines to
get on base.
On March 17, Hardee greeted
Braden River, which won 11-3.
Hardee started well with an Adams
hit, bunt fielder's choice by
Rebekah Mahoney, single by
Amber Steedley, double by
Buckley and single by Hines before
Hardee was stopped with its three
scores on the board.
Braden River had scored only
one run in the first inning and was
shut down again until adding a run
in the fourth. The Lady Pirates got
on the board in a big way in the top
of the fifth, sending 11 batters to
the plate and bringing seven of
them home. Another pair of scores
in the top of the seventh on back-
to-back doubles and a single ended
the game in Braden River's favor.
Against Haines City on March
20, Hardee tried to play catch-up
ball and fell just short in an 8-7
loss. The Lady Hornets opened
with a half dozen scores in the
opening inning. They were able to
add one in the second and another
in the fourth inning.
Meanwhile, Hardee gradually
Worked its way into the game.
Mahoney drew a walk, followed by
a Steedley hit and passed ball to put
one tally on the board in the home
half of the first.
Two more runners came home in
the third inning. Katie Bryan began
it with a single, advancing on an
error. Mahoney drew a walk and
was later out on a fielder's choice.
Steedley singled again and an error
on a Buckley brought Steedley
home. It was 7-3.
Hardee made it 8-6 with a trio of
tallies in the home half of the
fourth. Robertson was safe when
-the right fielder muffed her hit.
Ashley Alden drew a walk and
Chelsea Owens and Bryan both sin-
gled. An Adams walk pushed them
along: ""*: '
. Hardee rallied for yet another runi
in the sixth inning. Owens was safe
on a fielder's choice which took out
Alden after she had been on first as
the result of an error. With two
away, Adams doubled to left field
to score Owens. She and Mahoney
were left on base.
Hardee's final chance came in
the bottom of the seventh. With two
out, Robertson was safe on an error
and Alden walked. But a groundout
ended the game with Hardee one
run short.
At home against DeSoto on
March 21, Hardee had the early 2-1
lead until pitcher Buckley tired and
DeSoto got a late quintet of scores
for the 7-2 win.
Hardee scored first, plating lead-
off batter Adams in the first inning.
Adams walked, advanced on a
Mahoney sacrifice and came home
on a Steedley hit up the middle.
DeSoto tied the game in the top
of the second on a walk and pair.
Hardee went back in-front 2-1 in
the bottom of the second. Ciara
Lambert doubled to right field
advanced on an Owens hit and rode
home on another by Adams.
DeSoto tied it up again in the top
of the third on a pair of hits and an
error.
The game rocked along until the
top of the sixth, when DeSoto com-
bined walks and hits for a five-run
outburst and held off Hardee for the
7-2 win.
Hardee's final game before the
Spring Break was last Friday at
Booker. Again, Hardee had the
early lead before losing 16-5.
Three Lady Cats came around to
cross home plate in the top of the
first. Adams singled to left and
Robertson followed with another
hit. Steedley drew a walk and
Buckley singled. With hits by
Bryan and Hines and an Owens
walk, Hardee had put three scores
on the board.
Booker tied the game in the
home half of the first on three hits,
a walk and an error.
While Hardee stranded
Robertson in the second stanza,
Booker put five more runs on the
board while sending all nine batters


to the plate, using a combination of
walks, hits and errors. Another five
came across in the third inning.
In the top of the fourth Hardee
managed to plate a pair of batters.
Adams walked and Steedley was
safe on the right fielder's error. Hits
by Bryan and Hines brought the
first two batters home before the
third out occurred.
Booker added four insurance
runs in the bottom of the fourth and
Hardee was three up, three down in
the top of the fifth.


Step Outdoors
With MiWael Kelly


It has been two weeks now and my quest for an Osceola 'obbler has
been unsuccessful. My brothers David and Jonathan along i th my dad
have each gotten a turkey, which is starting to put some pressure on me.
The opening weekend was a complete bust. The turkeys that I found
before the season opened seemed to have moved about a mile south of
where I was hunting.
Full of anticipation, I climbed into my blind well before daybreak on
the opening morning. As the eastern sky began to turn pink and orange I
just knew a gobbler would start gobbling right on top of me. As the time
passed I heard nothing and began to get worried. I knew either the turkeys
had moved or they were just not talking. After about five minutes my fears
were confirmed as I heard a few faint gobbles way to the south.
I still had not totally given up. I hoped maybe there was a gobbler
around me and he just wasn't gobbling. This wasn't the case. At about nine
o'clock I went and got my brother Jeremy, who was hunting a few hundred
yards away, and told him we had to move.
We walked back to the truck to go try a completely different area.
Whenever I opened my door I heard my voicemail ringing. Of course it was
David who had already called to brag about his turkey. We had a little bet
between us brothers on who would kill one with the biggest beard this sea-
son. So, all his voicemail said was you better have killed one longer than
10 inches. That was real nice to know that only three hours into the season
I was way down.
Jeremy and I went on and hunted the rest of the morning without any
luck. We met up with my dad and Jonathan later on at camp. They had been
hunting a different area and did not get one either.
The next morning all four of us went back to where I had hunted the
morning before. We moved down the woods line I was hunting to be clos-
er to the bird I heard gobbling the morning prior. I waited for daybreak and
still heard no gobble. Jeremy and I finally decided to just sit down some-
where. The bird finally gobbled one time, and he had moved from where he
was the day before.
This time he was about a half-mile away. I told Jeremy we have to
move again. We tried to locate the bird again once we got closer but were
unable to.
We met up with Jonathan and dad later in the morning and headed for
camp to cook breakfast. On the way back to the truck I told Jonathan to stop
and look out in a big field. He didn't take me serious and walked out into
the edge of it before looking.
He quickly jumped back behind the palmettos and said he saw three
turkeys. I asked him if they saw him and he said he wasn't sure. Apparently
they had because when I eased out to look I was just in time to see three
gobblers running out the far side of the field about 300 yards away.
After we cooked breakfast we went back out and hunted a couple of
hours with no luck.
Last weekend I was back in the woods for another try. After setting up
camp Friday afternoon I went out to try to roost a bird. Walking back to
where I was going to roost I saw a nice gobbler ahead of me. He must have
seen me to because he retreated back into the hammock. I went on and sat
by some big pine trees where turkeys have roosted in the past. I had a deer
walk right past me but saw no turkeys.
The next morning dad, Jonathan and I went after the gobbler I had seen
the afternoon before. I thought I might know were he was roosted, so we all
went in to set up in that area After only seeing a few hens early, we decid-
ed to split up.
I went to the edge of a cypress strand that had some lush vegetation
growing beside it. I had been there about an hour and not seen anything. I
started doing a lot, of calling in' hopes of luring in a gobbler.
About five minutes after I finished calling a couple of cows walked up
and started feeding off to my left. I got caught up watching them for a few
minutes and then turned to look back to my right and there he was.
A gobbler was standing about 40 yards away. He started walking away
from me so I quickly tried to figure out what to do I knew if I moved real
fastere would' l. He must have seen me while I was watching the cows.
I slowly raised my gun as he walked into the thick cypress trees. Every time
I would start to pull the trigger his head would disappear behind another
tree and then pop out again a few feet to the left. Whenever I moved my gun
over he would go behind another tree. If only he would have stopped. He
walked away without me even getting a shot.
I was sick. I could not believe what had just happened. The gobbler
came in without uttering a sound and caught me not paying attention.
About a minute later I was sitting there sulking when another gobbler
passed about 15 yards out of range. I felt helpless as I now watched two
gobblers walk away from me.
It was about 11 o'clock and I was so mad I decided to quit for the day.
I was walking back to my truck when I bumped into my dad. He told me he
had just seen two gobblers and was unable to get a shot at them. I told him
I knew the feeling as the same two turkeys just did the same thing to me.
He was going to hunt a little longer and then get Jonathan and head back to
camp. I said I would go start lunch and have it ready when they got there.
They showed up at camp around one o'clock and Jonathan told me he
changed spots about 11:30. He said after he sat down he did some calling
and leaned over to set his yelper down. When he looked up he said he saw
two gobblers running off..
I couldn't believe these two lucky turkeys managed to get by everyone
of us within about a two-hour time frame and nobody even got a shot.
They told me after that they left and headed for camp. About five minutes
later I found out they were withholding some information from me. This is
what actually happened.
After letting those two turkeys get away Jonathan got mad and left his
spot to go find my dad. He found him and climbed in the blind with him.
Dad said Jonathan was hanging his head when he told him that he saw two
gobblers heading their way. These were two different turkeys and not the
ones.that we all let slip away earlier in the morning.
Whenever one turkey got into range Jonathan's shot was blocked so
my dad raised his gun up and shot. The turkey went down, and they got up
and started going towards it. About half-way to the downed bird Jonathan
noticed the second turkey standing about five yards away from the one that
had just been shot. The turkey bolted for the woods. Jonathan quickly raised
and shot, killing him just before he made it into the woods.
So while I was cooking them lunch, they each got a gobbler. I guess
Jeremy and I have some real catching up to do. Hopefully this weekend my
spell of mishaps will come to an end and I will be able to finally get mine.
Maybe next time I should stay more alert and stop watching cows, and from
now on they can cook me lunch while I kill a turkey.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered rains over some Peninsula and Panhandle areas brought
minor relief to dry conditions during the week of March 20 through 26.
i Most central Peninsula localities received only traces of rain or recorded
no measurable rain for the week with the probability for wild fire outbreaks
increasing. The rain storms, especially those crossing the southern
Peninsula, spawned tornadoes with some damage occurring. No rain was
reported at Avalon, Brooksville, Dover, Okahumpka, and Tampa; almost
two inches were received at Alachua, Immokalee and West Palm Beach.
Daily temperatures at the major stations averaged from four degrees below
normal at Jacksonville to one degree above at West Palm Beach. Daytime
highs averaged in the 70s and 80s. Nighttime lows averaged in the 40s, 50s
and 60s with several northern and central Peninsula and most Panhandle
localities recording at least one low in the 30s. Cold temperatures brought
freezes and frost to some Panhandle and northern Peninsula localities at the
end of the week.

FIELD CROPS
Producers are assessing cold temperature damage to recent corn plant-
ings with only light frosts reported for some Fanhandle areas. Corn plant-
ing remained active in the Panhandle and northern Peninsula including a
small acreage planted in Taylor County. Sugarcane harvesting continued to
slow seasonally around Lake Okeechobee with most mills closed. Although
the late week rains slightly increased topsoil moisture, dry conditions fol-
lowing the rain rapidly depleted supplies. Nearly all localities, statewide,
need more rain. Most soil moisture is short to adequate. Washington,
Okeechobee, Lee and Palm Beach counties reported spots of very short
moisture.

VEGETABLES
Strong winds tossed plants and wind borne sand bruised some fruit
when storms passed over southern Peninsula growing areas near the end of
the week. However, no significant damage was reported. The rains washed
away some pesticides but fields dried quickly after the storms and that may
limit any increase in disease. Tomato transplanting for the spring crop har-
vest is underway around Quincy with recent cool temperatures causing no
significant damage to the small plants. Tomato transplanting in the Quincy
area is expected to continue through mid-April. Strawberry growers are
starting to open fields to the U-Pick market as production in 'other states
increases. Recent hot temperatures hindered berry development. Other veg-
etables and non-citrus fruit harvested during the week included snap beans,
cabbage, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, escarole, lettuce, potatoes,
peppers, radishes, squash, sweet corn and tomatoes.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and north, drought and near freezing temperatures
have slowed grass growth. Pasture condition is poor to fair. Most of the cat-
tle are in fair condition. Pasture condition in the Big Bend area is poor to
fair, with the condition a little better at locations that received light show-
ers. Pasture condition in the southwest is poor to good, with most in poor
condition. Drought is limiting grass growth. Cattle condition is mostly
good. Statewide, cattle condition ranges from poor to good with most in fair
condition.

CITRUS
Daytime temperatures were above average the beginning of the week
reaching the mid 80s in all areas, and then cooling down over the weekend.
Rainfall was minor in all areas except Immokalee, which had almost two
inches on Wednesday. Most areas are still dry due to lack of rain for the past
several weeks. Growers and caretakers are irrigating, fertilizing and apply-
ing nutritional sprays. Trees reached full bloom, with varieties progressing
uniformly throughout the State. Early midseason harvest is almost over for
the season, dropping off rapidly the last two weeks. Valencia harvesting,
has picked up significantly the last couple of weeks; however, weekly lev-
els are not as high as last season. About nine processing plants are now
open. Grapefruit harvest is still fairly strong, with the majority of both col-
ored and white going to processing. Honey tangerine utilization is running
about between 100,000 to 150,000 boxes a week being picked primarily
for the fresh market, while the majority of Temples being picked are going
to processing.

Florida Citrus growers are great-
ly encouraged by the supportive
nature of an alert issued by the U.S.
Customs and Border Protection/De-
partment of Homeland Security on
March 27.
The alert issued to all stations
called for their officers to be on the
lookout for parcels and/or other
shipments containing citrus plant
material during passenger baggage
inspection, mail facility inspec-
tions, etc. This action follows the
state of Florida's recent announce-
ment allowing the re-planting of
citrus in areas formerly quarantined
for Citrus Canker.
According to Pat Gomes, nation-
al coordinator for the Citrus Health
Response Plan, USDA, APHIS
PPQ, "If anything, this is clear evi-
dence that they recognize the threat
posed to the Florida Citrus Industry
stemming from the desire of local
citizens to replant citrus in residen-
tial areas and the possibility of per-
son smuggling propagative citrus
materials from outside the United

The annual Ms. Mac's Memorial Benefit golf tournament was held on Feb. 18 at Torrey Oaks Golf
Course with 123 golfers on hand. Mosaic Fertilizer sponsored the event, along with the Hardee
County Council on Aging, Inc. Over $7,000 was raised and will be used with state and federal
grants to provide a variety of services, through H.O.PE. of Hardee, to the elderly residents of the
county. Many businesses and individuals donated cash, prizes and their time in volunteering to
make this event a huge success. Closet to the Pin cash prizes were donated by Suncoast Schools
Federal Credit Union. The winners were Chip Hill, Frank Cline, James Doty and Scott Whitener.

There is a special padded cell
with constant video surveillance.
An inmate in this situation has
nothing in the cell with which he
could hurt himself and is seen at
least every 15 minutes by the hall
officer on watch.
There are a pair of medical cells'
in which there is a fresh air vacuum
where any inmate with an infec-
tious disease can be separated from
the other inmates.
Federal inmates are given the
same clothes, food and recreation
8 times as other inmates. County
inmates pay $3.25 a day toward
their meals and other minimum
needs. They are able to retain half
of monies they receive to use for
commissary or personal needs.
The county gets $50 per day for
each federal inmate, plqs any med-
ical expenses for them are paid. In.
addition, the Federal Marshal's
Office is working on a transporta-
tion plan which would reimburse
the county if local staff transport
them. They would schedule such
trips once or twice a week on spe-
cific court dates.
Both Harris and Harrison said
they would "like to move on a fast
track to get the renovation done."

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


TODAY'S GIRLS DESERVE SAME TREATMENT AS BOYS
In 1885, soon after the publication of "The Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn," a young reporter asked Mark Twain his opinion on the best way to
raise boys.
"Keep 'em in a barrel with a hole in it," the writer replied.
"But, sir," inquired the reporter, "what do you do when the boy out-
grows the barrel?"
"Plug up the hole," Twain said.
Samuel Clemens, AKA Mark Twain, AKA Sieur Louis de Conte, a
fifth-grade dropout, became the quintessential American writer and is
among the most beloved authors not only in America but the world.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens claimed he came by the pen name Mark
Twain from his years on a riverboat where he earned his steamboat pilot
license in 1855. Two fathoms, or 12 feet of safe water measured on the
sounding line, was marked by calling "mark twain!" But another widely
accepted theory is that the name actually came from Clemens's wilder days
in the West where he would buy two drinks and tell the bartender to "mark
twain" on his tab. The true origin of the name is unknown. Clemens also
used the pseudonym, "Sieur Louis de Conte."
Whatever the source of the name, Mark Twain is probably the greatest
writer and humorist America has ever produced. Nobel prize winning
southern author William Faulkner wrote that Mark Twain was "the first
truly American writer, and all of us since are his heirs."
Another Nobel prize winning American author, Ernest Hemingway,
said, "All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark
Twain called 'Huckleberry Finn.' All American writing comes from that.
There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since."


In 1888 Clemens was awarded an honorary Master of Arts degree from
Yale University. In 1901 he received an honorary Doctor of Letters from
Yale and in 1902 he received an honorary degree from the University of
Missouri. Oxford University in 1907 awarded Twain an honorary Doctor of
Letters degree along with Rudyard Kipling, Auguste Rodin and Camille
Saint-Saens.
Not bad for an 11-year-old boy who quit school in the fifth grade after
the death of his father to work as a printer's assistant for a local newspaper
where his job was to arrange the type of each of the newspaper's stories,
thus allowing Sam to read the news of the world while completing his
work.
From 1891 until 1900, Twain and his family traveled the world he had
read about as a child. He witnessed the increasing exploitation of weaker
governments by European powers, which he described in his book,
"Following the Equator." The Boar War in South Africa and the Boxer
Rebellion in China fueled his growing anger toward imperialistic countries
and their actions. With the Spanish-American and Philippine War in 1898,
Sam's wrath was redirected toward the American government. When he
returned to the United States in 1900, Sam declared himself an anti-impe-
rialist and from 1901 until his death, he served as the vice-presiddnt of the
Anti-Imperialist League.
In these later years, Sam's writings turned dark. They began to focus
on human greed and cruelty, and he questioned the humanity of the human
race. Labeled by some as a traitor, several of Sam's works were never pub-
lished during his lifetime either because magazines would not accept them
or because of a personal fear that his marketable reputation would be
ruined.
Samuel Clemens came in with Halley's Comet in 1835, and went out
with it in 1910, as he had prophesied he would.
Mark Twain was truly one of those star crossed individuals the likes of
which the world seldom sees. His humanity, insight, talent and humor con-
tinue to shine like a beacon in a dark world. He is probably the most quot-
ed individual that has ever lived.


Time is a dressmaker special-
izing in alterations.

Proposed Annexation


If Clemens could visit America today, I suspect even he would be dis-
mayed at how little discipline and guidance so many children receive at
home. I believe he would be more surprised that so many girls participate
in the profanity and violence that plague our nation. Today's girls smoke,
drink, swear and fight right alongside the boys. 1
If he were here today, I imagine Sam would recommend the use of bar-
rels for girls as well as boys; because the Virginia Slim cigarette commer-
cials got it right: you've come a long way, baby.

Cats Win 3 More


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat varsity base-
ball team kept its district lead with
a win Friday night over Sarasota
Booker.
, Coming at the end of wins earli-
r in the week over Frostproof and
t. Albans, the district victory
moved the Cats to 15-3 overall and
6-1 in district competition.
They play a pair of district oppo-
nents this week, each of which they
have already defeated once. They
went to Braden River Tuesday
evening and journey over to Avon
Park tomorrow (Friday) for a dou-
ble-header, with the junior varsity
match-up at 4 p.m. and the varsity
squads clashing at 7 p.m.
Next week's games are home
Tuesday for a visit from Booker
and a trip to Auburndale on
Thursday. Hardee finishes up its
regular-season district competition
the following week, with games at
DeSoto on April 11 and Palmetto
on April 14.

;bur Bulldog errors in shutting out
3rostproof on March 21. Junior
pitcherr Jake Spencer went the dis-
ance in facing just 23 batters, with
Sight strikeouts, two walks and
rnly two hits allowed.
Senior catcher Justin Altman
Irew Player of the Game nod from
lead coach Steve Rewis for his
;lutch hitting and good job behind
he plate including the pickoff of
Van Ferguson, who had singled and
attempted to steal second in the
fifth inning.
One of the hits came in the top of
he first on a Donald Brown smack
o left field. A walk was also sand-
iched around a groundout, strike-
ut and fly-out. The next five
linings were three up, three down
or the Bulldogs. In the top of the
Seventh a walk went for naught
9,hen Spencer struck out the final
batter.
Hardee put a quartet of tallies on
Jhe board in the home half of the
frst and kept up the pressure. In the
first inning, Will Krause dropped a
shot in the infield as fielders each
waited for it to fall. He was safe at
second on an overthrow on a steal.

Player of the game


#32 Brad Gilliard
Early in the game, Hardee had no
answer for the pitching of senior
left-hander Jeremiah Meiners. But
since it was the first week of the
Bulldog season, Meiners was limit-
ed to 60 pitches and gave way to
soph Matt Greib and then soph Jon
Suzich.
Led by senior Brad Gilliard,
Hardee found its way out of the 3-0
hole. Gilliard led off .the six-run
fifth inning with a hit and came
around to hit a .two-RBI single
before the final out.
The Washington, D. C.-based
Bulldogs are players in a private
boys school, whose parents are
judges, senators and representa-
tives and similar public employees.
They began their Florida trip with a
loss at Okeechobee, won over Avon
Park and were shut out by Santa Fe
Catholic before meeting Hardee.
They had five more games on their
Florida tour, including double-
headers on Friday and Saturday of
last week. Their regular season
began on March 29.
Against Hardee, Meiners went
head-to-head against Wildcat
senior James Basey. "It was a good
come-from-behind win against a
good program like St. Albans.
Jeremiah pitched well but we
were glad when they changed
pitchers because it's so early in
their season. That gave us a chance
to come back. James hung in there
and kept us in the game. We did
what we needed to go ahead and
stay ahead. Brad certainly led that
effort," said the Wildcat coach.
Both teams went down one, two
three in the first inning. In the sec-
ond each stranded runners. Briant
Shumard dropped a hit in left cen-
ter for the Cats but was left on base.
St. Albans got its first score in the
top of the third. Andy Longosz
singled and Andy Thomas doubled
to left field. A hit by Meiners plated
the first run of the game. Hardee
left Chris Bigelow aboard after he
had drawn a walk.
In the top of the second Clay
Bartlett was safe on an error and
Chris Mauro singled. Bartlett
scored on the double-play ball hit
by Francis Brooke. Steve Morgan
singled to left, stole second and
raced home on a Longosz hit. It
was 3-0.
Hardee prevented further damage
in the top of the fifth, when a single
and error put two men on base. An
attempt to steal home was thwarted
and a double-play ended the threat.
Hardee unleased its attack in the
home half of the fifth. Gilliard
opened by dropping a hit in short
right center. Cody Gullatt drew a
walk. Both advanced on a wild
pitch.
With two away, Palmer slapped a
high hopper off the pitcher's glove
and was 'safe. Jarrett Benavides
walked and Lance Benavides hit to
center field. Abbott was hit by a
pitch. Shumard walked in a run and
St. Albans changed pitchers.
Gilliard greeted Suzich 'with a hit
up the middle. Lance Benavides
scored and pinch runner Mayer also
slid home under the tag. When the
final out occurred, Hardee had a 6-
3 lead.


The Cats denied St. Albans any
sixth inning runs and added anoth-
er trio in the bottom of the sixth.
Altman walked and moved along
on a Bigelow bunt sacrifice. Palmer
walked and Jarrett Benavides dou-
bled down the right field line to
score two teammates. Jarrett went
to third on a sacrifice by his broth-
er, Lance and came home on a wild
pitch to make the score 9-3.
St. Albans got one run in the top
of the seventh on a Longosz hit, a
walk, passed ball and sacrifice by
Will Krasne. Basey struck out the
final batter to end the game and
preserve Hardee's 9-4 win.

#44 Lance Benavides
Junior right hander Lance
Benavides threw five and two-
thirds innings, surviving sixth-
inning difficulty to claim the dis-
trict win for Hardee. He also dou-
bled and was safe twice on errors
by the Tornadoes. For his game
contributions, he earned player of
the game honors.
"We played pretty well, just well
enough to win. We had about a
dozen hits at the right times. Will
(Krause) started the game, but had
been ill and I had to replace him
with Lance, who finished it for us,"
said Rewis. "Palmer, Krause and
Altman added a pair of hits apiece,"
added the coach.
Palmer singled but was caught
trying to stretch to third on an error
on a Benavides hit. Booker left the
bases loaded.
Hardee got its first tallies in the
second-inning bat-around. Gilliard
singled to left, stole second and
raced home on a Jarrett Benavides
double. He came around to cross
home plate on an Altman hit, who
in turn scored on a Palmer hit.
Krause kept it going with'a single,
and Lance Beriavides: was safe oq
an error. But the Cats left the bases
jammed when the last out occurred
with a 3-0 lead.
Booker got a solo tally in the bot-
tom of the second on a walk, hit
batsman and double.
Hardee got that run back in the
top of the third. Shumard walked,
went to third on an error on a
Gullatt hit and home on another
Altman hit. It was 4-1.
Booker got a run in the fourth on
an error and pair of singles to make
it 4-2.
In the top of the fifth, Hardee
added a trio of insurance runs.
Gullatt singled to right field and
Jarrett Benavides and Altman were
both safe on errors, which brought
Gullatt and Benavides to home
'plate. Altman was out on a Palmer
fielder's choice, but he raced all the
way home on a Krause double to
deep left field. It was 7-2.
The Tornadoes were not done
yet, plating four runners on four
hits and an error in the home hqlf of
the sixth before a strikeout and
back-to-back flies to center field
stopped the rally. It was 7-6.
Hardee was three up, three down
in thd seventh. With two away,
Booker tried to get just one more
run but was limited to a single
before the final out of the game.
The poetry of the earth is never
dead.

Way Back When-


This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Advocate,
the Hardee County Herald and
The Herald-Advocate of...

75 YEARS AGO
Unidentified Body Is Found In
Peace River: The body of an
unidentified man about 40 years of
age was found on the bank of the
Peace River opposite Zolfo Springs.
The man, who was judged dead
about two weeks, was neatly
dressed and wore a full suit of
clothes. No marks of identification
were found on the body. It was
found by Allan Johns, who was
fishing about a mile south of the
Peace River Bridge.

Well Known Deer Dog Killed
Last Saturday: "Judge," a red-
boned deer and turkey dog, owned
by Sheriff C.S. Dishong, was run
over by an automobile last Saturday
morning around 10.
Judge, who was son of old
"Biuck," the famous dog killed by a
train four weeks ago, met his death
when he lay down in front of R.O.
Evans's Chrysler automobile park-
ed at Ninth and Main St. This leaves
the sheriff without any of his
famous red-boned slow-trailing
dogs.

Earnest's New Store Ready For
The Public: J.W. Earnest &
Company, Wauchula's oldest and
best-known dry goods and clothing
firm moved into its larger quarters

ulty will move into the new high
school complex on Altman Road
sometime this month.

already accepted nine of the 11
buildings on the campus as substan-
tially complete, which means that
they can be used by the school sys-
tem.

Bates, Reson Holt Jr. and David
Beckley. They visited the junior
high's sister school in Grodno,
along with castles, a' collective
farm, a tank division, the circus, a
ballet and a monastery.

Murder Gets 18-Year Prison
Term: A former Zolfo Springs man
who killed and robbed his sister's
boyfriend to get drug money has

Bulldogs Down JV Cats


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A heavyweight brand of Bull-
dogs defeated the Hardee junior
varsity Wildcats last week.
The Washington, D.C.-based
junior Bulldogs hit often and hard
in the 22-9 win over the junior
Cats, slicing hits through the gaps
in the Hardee defense.
It was Hardee's only game of the
week when the Tuesday game
against the Frostproof Bulldogs
was cancelled because Frostproof
had to close down its JV team.
This week the JV Cats hope to
get back on the winning track with
games Tuesday at Lake Placid and
tomorrow (Friday) at Avon Park in
the 4 p.m. opener of a double-head-
er which is followed at 7 p.m. by a
varsity game.
Coming back from Spring Break,
the Hardee junior Cats face a trio of
home games to end the season. All
are at 6 p.m. at Braden River comes
in on April 5, followed by DeSoto
on April 11 and Palmetto in the


April 14 finale.
The private St. Albans school
fielded a team which appeared larg-
er and more experienced than the
junior Cats. The Bulldogs opened
with five first-inning tallies on five
well-placed hits and a sacrifice.
Dan Timmons singled in the
home half of the first and got all the
way to third on an error but was
stranded.
Each team got a run in the second
stanza. For St. Albans, it was on a
pair of hits and a stolen base. For
Hardee, Brek McClenithan led off
with a hit that dropped in short
right field. He went to second on a
bunt sacrifice by Josh Rodgers. An
error on a Kyle Cobb hit put run-
ners on the comers, with a Kaleb
Saunders RBI getting McClenithan
home. It was 6-1.
St. Albans unleashed another
salvo in the third inning, plating
seven runners on eight hits and an
error. Hardee got only a single to
left field by Will Abbott.
The Bulldogs added five more
scores in inning four on six hits and


an error before Carl Basey came in
and closed out the inning with a
pair of strikeouts and a groundout.
Facing a new pitcher, the young
Cats got going. Jeremy Hollenback
bounced a hit high over the short-
stop's leap. He stole second and
Tyler Robertson moved him along
with a sacrifice. An error on a Ryan
Abbott hit brought Hollenbeck
home. Basey dropped a shot into
short left field and Michael Dixon
followed with a hit to right center.
Will Abbott beat out a hit to deep
short.
Timmons continued with a liner
over the third baseman. Hollenbeck
was hit by a pitch, reloading the
bases. A new pitcher came in and
promptly walked Robertson on four
straight pitches. Ryan Abbott sin-
gled and Logan Thomas was hit by
a pitch. When the inning ended,,
Hardee had picked up eight runs on
seven hits and two errors and still
left the bases jammed. It was 19-9.
The Bulldogs got its final trio of
tallies in the top of the fifth and
Hardee was unable to answer.

Tennis Teams Split With Pirates


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee tennis teams had totally
different outcomes in playing Port
Charlotte last week.
The boys swept the Pirates while
th.e girls battled in vain.
Thursday matches against Sara-
sota Booker were cancelled due to
the rain.
The local teams will practice a
bit over the Spring Break to stay in
shape for the final push toward the
Class 2A District 9 tournament on
April 17-18. They have only a


handful of matches before the dis-
trict competition.
Hardee girls went to Port
Charlotte last Tuesday shorthanded
because of cheerleading tryouts.
Junior D.K. Davis was the only one
who had played tennis before this
year. Accompanying her were
junior exchange student Stephanie
Knauer and freshmen Kaitlin
Justice, Clara Durrance and
Amanda Porter.
Coach Ken Leupold noted; "I
was very pleased with the girls who
went. The first three matches were


very close. Clara Durrance and
Amanda Porter showed a lot of
improvement from the start of the
year."
Davis played at number one sin-
gles against Lady Pirate Jemma
Colone and pushed the limit in the
7-5, 6-1 loss. Knauer ,picked up
Hardee's only victory in beating
Kelly Brown 6-4, 7-5. At number
three Justice went three sets before
losing to Brittany Ard 6-4, 7-9, 10-
3.
Relative newcomers, Durrance
lost 6-1, 76-1 to Jessica Cruz and
Porter lost 6-2, 6-1 to Scarlet
Nelson.
In the doubles pro-set matches
Davis/Justice lost 6-3 to
Colone/Brown and Knauer/Dur-
rance lost 8-2 to Ard/Cruz.
Hardee boys j went to' Port
Charlotte on Wednesday. "The
matches were a little closer than the
scores indicate, which is good. It
means we are winning the deuce
and ad points now. Our mental
games were better as well," com-
mented Leupold, whose boys'
squad is now 6-4.
Junior Josh Ready and seniors
,"W alter "'Boomer" Olliff, J6hn Paul.
' Barton, Robbie Jones and Kevin
Sanders made the trip south. '
Ready started by beating Mike
Baker 6-0, 6-1 in the number one
singles. Olliff followed with a 6-2,
6-1 win over Brandon Bernard at
number two and Barton took care
of Josh Patrick 6-0, 6-2.
At number four, Jones faced the
only three-set match in coming
back to down Dustin McMullen 5-
7, 6-4, 6-2. At number five, Sanders
defeated Mike McMahn 6-3, 6-0.
In doubles competition,
Ready/Olliff worked for a 6-1, 6-2
win over Baker/Bernard and
Barton/Jones shut out Patrick/-
McMullen 8-0.

WATCH OUT FOR WHITE COLLAR PSYCHOPATHS
SELLING INVESTMENTS
Con artists, hustlers and financial predators charm, lie, and manipulate
heir way through life.
To most people the word psychopath brings up images of characters
ike Hannibal Lechter, the caged murderer played by Anthony Hopkins in
he movie "Silence of the Lambs". However, white collar crooks who sell
)hony investments, pull loan scams, or commit other devious financial
:rimes often display the same ant-social behaviors as violent psychopathic
criminals Here are some personality traits of people with antisocial per-
;onality disorders.
A psychopath or sociopath is someone who manifests aggressive, per-
verted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse. While
criminal activity is not a necessary requirement for the diagnosis, psy-
zhopaths often run into legal difficulties because of their disregard for soci-
-tal standards and the rights of others. Many sociopaths wind up in prison.
Research suggests that sociopaths are indifferent to threats of physi-
zal pain or punishment. They show no indications of fear when threatened
and have a total disregard for the consequences of their actions. Significant
s the finding that they have no conscience. The world evolves around the
psychopath. All that matters is his needs and wants. Family, friends and
acquaintances are often hurt physically, emotionally or financially when
dealing with a psychopath.
Psychopaths are master manipulators and extremely good liars. One
:ehavioral expert, Dr. Robert D. Hare, believes psychopaths-are neither
sociopaths nor psychotics but instead are people who are well aware of the
difference between right and wrong and simply choose to ignore the dis-
tinction. In his book, "Without Conscience: The Disturbing World of
Psychopaths Among Us," Dr. Hare provides a checklist for recognizing a
psychopath. Not all traits need to be present to be diagnosed a psychopath
but the binding trait is a lack of conscience. Prevalent psychopathic behav-
iors include a glibness and superficial charm, grandiose sense of self worth,
a conning and manipulative demeanor, a parasitic lifestyle, lack of realistic
Tbng-term goals, lack of remorse or guilt, irresponsive and impulsive
behavior, and being a pathological liar.
Most of us have difficulty recognizing psychopaths. Research suggests
they are not the product of broken homes or the shortfalls of a materialistic
society. They come from all walks of life and there is little evidence that
their upbringing created their behavior. Psychopathic traits usually surface
at a very early age and are believed to derive from biological or genetic fac-
tors.
Psychologists suggest that by the time that a psychopath is in his late
teens, the disorder is permanent. A romantic relationship for a psychopath
'is an opportunity to find a trusting partner who believes their lies.
Psychopaths rarely stay in long-term relationships because everything
about the relationship is a game. They gain your affection quickly, fool
you with words, and intrigue you with grandiose plans. They do the same
thing in their business dealings. They don't play by the rules and lie com-
pulsively. One behavioral expert describes them this way, "psychopaths
don't discriminate who it is they lie-to or cheat. There's no distinction
between friend, family and sucker."
Sociopaths don't seek psychological or psychiatric therapy or other
kinds of help. That's because they don't believe they have psychological or
emotional problems. If they are arrested for a crime they may be ordered to
participate in therapy or counseling but don't volunteer. It is also suggest-
ed that they don't benefit from therapy. Instead, a therapist is just one more
person to con. A psychopath lies, role plays and manipulates until they
believe the therapist is convinced of his qr her rehabilitation. Once that is
accomplished they go back to their deceptive ways and move on to their
"next victim.
Now that you know how to recognize a few of the most common per-
sonality traits of a sociopath, you should think twice before writing a check
!the iiex time a gib salesirian. says, "What a deal I've got for you!" He may
be a-sociopathic wiiite 61collafiook looking for his next victim. -. .

SEEING IS BELIEVING
I don't know if you're like me but I will let you in on a liulie secret: I
have a hard time believing in something if I don't see it for myself. It is not
that I think people are being dishonest or that I am scared of being
scammed; I just want to see things for myself. Maybe that is why I like sci-
ence so much. In high school, I loved being able to see for myself the way
animals' bodies function and how everything worked together.
I'm the same way about spiritual things. I want to see something in the
Bible for myself. I refuse to take someone else's word for it. I'm not a close-
minded person. I'm not even cynical or skeptical. I just.want to see things
for myself. So when someone comes to me and starts "preaching," I have a
tendency to say, "Show me!" I try to do this in the most tactful way possi-
ble and want them to know that I am not criticizing them, I just like to see
things for myself.
Personally, I feel that a lack of this quality is one of the problems in the
religious world. This is one of the reasons why there are so many denomi-
nations of "Christianity," if that is what we are going to call it. Christianity
was intended to be one group of people following after Christ, not many
groups trying to please themselves (John 17; 1 Cor. 1; Eph. 4). People need
to stop taking a preacher's word for it (and I'm a preacher saying that).
People need to stop having blind faith in their pastor, preacher or priest and
start having faith in God. If we just take a man's word for it, then our sal-
vation is based on the frailty and possible error of man If we only take
God's word for it, then we can know that our faith is unshakable and true!
It's like Luke wrote of the Christians in Berea:
(11) And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica,
in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind and
searched the Scriptures daily to see if those things were so.
(12) Therefore many of them believed, and quite a few of
honorable Greek women and men (Act 17:11-12 ).
What an outstanding, honest group of people! Here, Paul and the disci-
ples were teaching these men and women a more perfect way of Christ yet
' they wanted to see it for themselves before they believed.
Oh, that we would all be this way! The next time you hear God's word
ask for proof! Any man who teaches God's word will be honored to show
you where the Bible states the facts that he is teaching. Any man who can-
not show you, you should not listen to because our faith is to be in God
rather than man!
See it in God's Word before you believe it! I'm Telling the Truth!

RETIREMENT SAVINGS WITH A BIGGER PAYOFF
Truth be told, saving for retirement is about as much fun as flossing
your teeth; you only do it to make life better in your golden years.
Of course, it would be more appealing if there were a way to sweeten
the payoff, such as the new Roth 401(k) becoming available.
This new feature of the traditional employer-sponsored savings plan
expands employees' options for tax-free retirement income by allowing par-
ticipants to designate some or all of their deferral contributions as Roth
401(k)' deferrals'Traditional 401(y) deferral contributions defer tax liability
; onhai contributikobasrwellas the earnings until they are later withdrawn.
With the new Roth 401(k) deferrals, contributions are taxed in the same year
they are made, but both the savings.and earnings come out tax free when
withdrawn, assuming certain requirements are met.


March 30, 2006, The Herald-Advocate 5B

There are additional advantages associated with designating some or all
of your deferrals as Roth 401(k) deferrals. By creating a stream of tax-free
income at the time of retirement, you are able to diversify your income
between taxable and non-taxable thereby allowing you to better control the
taxes you pay. In addition, assets held in a Roth 401(k) can be rolled over to
a Roth IRA. This is particularly relevant when estate planning; 401(k)s,
including Roth 401(k)s, and traditional IRAs requires individuals age 70 1/2
and older to take out a minimum amount each year. Not so with the Roth
IRA. Roth 401(k) assets rolled into a Roth IRA can continue to grow tax-
free and potentially create a tax-free stream of income for your beneficia-
ries.
Determining the benefits of designating deferrals as traditional or Roth
401(k) deferrals depends on your age, current and anticipated tax brackets
and other individual considerations, but in most cases you'll end up with
more retirement income going the Roth 401(k) route. By designating your
401(k) deferrals as Roth 401(k) deferrals you don't get to defer taxes on the
dollar set aside for your future, but you'll get a big tax break when you take
them out. And the more years you have to save before retiring, the bigger
your payoff. In addition the Roth 401(k) might be of great interest to those
whose incomes prevent them from funding the conventional Roth IRA.
In other respects, deferrals designated as Roth 401(k) deferrals closely
resembles the Roth IRA. The rules defining qualified distributions allows
the earnings to be distributed tax-free are similar, including a five-year lag
since the first contributions and the requirement that the employee have
reached 59 1/2 years of age.

SPEND OR SAVE?
The biggest factor determining the size of your nest egg lies in your nat-
ural inclination to save. If you're the rare bird who would faithfully invest
the front-end tax savings from the traditional 401(k) in another tax sheltered
environment each year, and your tax rate falls in retirement, you might end
up with almost as much as if you'd saved through the Roth version.
However, the Roth 401(k) quickly starts to outpace the traditional option if
the tax savings associated with the traditional 401(k) deferral are not set
aside for retirement.
Even so, designating deferrals as Roth 401(k) deferrals is not meant to
entirely replace traditional 401(k) deferrals. In considering which option to
choose, certain factors in an individual's current situation may override the
after-tax value of his or her retirement assets.
The most obvious near-term advantage of traditional 401(k) saving is
its positive impact on cash flow. While individual factors will vary, here's
one such scenario: You earn $100,000 a year and invest $10,000 in your'
retirement plan. Assuming you're in the 28 percent tax bracket, your after-
tax annual income is $64,800. That's $2,800 more in take-home pay than
you would have available if you'd invested that $10,000 in a Roth 401(k).
Another consideration, depending on your income, has to do with the
Roth's impact on your current income bracket and eligibility for other
potential tax breaks. Because Roth contributions are made on an after-tax
basis, your taxable income will be higher than if you invested in a traditional
401(k). This could phase you out of tax breaks such as the child tax credit,
the earned income credit or the higher education expense deduction.
MIX AND MATCH
In many cases, the optimal solution will be a blend of the traditional and
Roth 401(k) deferral designations. For 2006, deferral contributions to
401(k) accounts are limited to total of $15,000, with a catch-up contribution
of $5,000 allowed for those who are age 50 or above.
To allow participants to designate some or all of their deferrals as Roth
401(k) deferrals, employers need to work with their plan provider to make
this option available. Until your employer implements the Roth 401(k) fea-
ture within your plan, you, as a participant will not be able to designate any
of your deferrals as Roth 401(k) deferrals. When the Roth 401(k) opportu-
nity does not knock, however, the many variables that need to be considered
make it prudent to consult with a qualified professional financial advisor
before designating some of your 401(k) deferrals as Roth 401(k) deferrals.

Banknotes issued by hundreds of banks were used as money in
the United States during the early and mid-1800s, known as the Wild-
cat Period of American banking.

QUAIL EXPERT


PPD SNACKS


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
James Martin, a quail expert and University of Georgia student working on his doctorate degree
in wildlife management, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club on March 7 at the Panda Restaurant.
The main reason for the decline in quail numbers is habitat loss and degradation, he explained.
He added that grass is bad for quail, as are too many trees that serve as perches for hawks and
owls. Clean fence rows and excessive herbicide use are not good for quail, he said. Quail cover
should be at least 12 inches high. Quail generally lay 12 to 14 eggs per nest, and eggs hatch in
23 days. Native grasses and plants plus prescribed burns at two-year intervals are good for quail.
Supplemental feeds should be scattered rather than be in feeders. Managing land for optimum
quail populations can cost up to $130 an acre a year. Pictured are (from left) Bob Hanchey, Adam
Butler, Martin and Jeff McKibben.

Senior Citizen News
By Jim Walton

It was another marvelous evening of music and dancing Thursday,
March 23, at the Catheryn McDonald Senior Center in Wauchula. Since this
was to be our final gathering at the center until sometime this fall, our host-
ess, Darlene planned a special program of music, coordinated in advance
with the band based on the 1950s and 1960s TV musical program band
leader, Kay Kaiser's "Collage of Musical Knowledge." Our audience not
only had to guess the correct title of the band's number being played, but
they had to guess correctly the contents within the little paper sacks that
Darlene held up in reference to the number that the band was playing.
Whoever got the correct answers, won the prizes within the bags. For
instance, the number "Pennies From Heaven" had a sack containing some
penny coins. The number "Room Full Of Roses" had a rose brooch in its
sack, "Write Myself A Letter" had a ballpoint pen and "Give Me A Little
Kiss" had candy kisses in its. It was lots of fun. The audience got to win all
the prizes in the musical knowledge.
Mike from Wagon Wheel RV Park won the evening's door prize this
time. The program's mystery number fooled us again. It was "I Am
Throwing Rice At The Girl That I Love."
Our friends prepared a fabulous snack table with fine food and drinks
for all present to enjoy. At intermission our friend Jerry gave us some com-
edy one liners that had us rolling with laughter.
During the second half of the evening events, the band hit it up with
great dance numbers and touch light songs of the 1940s and 1950s. They
even did a lively "boogie woogie" number this time, "The Chattanooga
Shoeshine Boy."
: They then finished out with a series of numbers in remembrance of
Vaughn Monroe and other great crooners of the 50s that really highlighted
all of this past season's gatherings here at this lovely center. They were
"Seems Like Old Times"; "There I Said It Again"; and "All Of Me." The
band's concluding number was the hope of all present tonight, and that's
"We Will Meet Again." As the band concluded this number, all present gave
the band and our lovely hostess a standing ovation for their extra effort in
preparing another season of excellent music and dancing here.
We all wish to especially thank the Senior Center's management and
their staff for making this hall available to us.
As we departed, we all embraced one another, wishing the best of
health and happiness and hoping to see one another again this fall.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

THE CROSS
The Cross is the most powerful symbol in the world, in this century or
any other. In two simple strokes, one vertical, the other horizontal, it tells us
all we need to know about ourselves and about God.
About ourselves: that we hated Him so much we killed Him. About
God that He loved us so much, He endured death in order to save us.
How longwill we gaze upon this cross before our hearts are broken?
What else do we need to know before accepting Christ's salvation? How
.many Bible studies do we need to take before throwing ourselves before
Him in submission? What more must God do to win our loyalty?
Sadly, it seems that we will do just about anything to escape this mes-
sage of the Cross: we will install it over our churches. We will use it in the
names of universities. We will attach it to a chain and wear it around our
necks. We will have it engraved on our tombstones.
But to live daily in the shadow of the Cross, in the humble conscious-
ness of what we have done and what He has done about it, there seem to be
few who are interested. This is because the Cross destroys self-esteem. It
ruifis pride. It causes us to give up all hope that somehow, by good works,
ivriting books, passing laws, giving to charity, even fighting wars, we'll win
God's favor.'
Although universal, the Cross is intensely personal in application. It is
useless to single out the first century scribes and Pharisees for the mon-
strous crime because it has been repeated every century since. One look at
a newspaper's front page and you can read about the same jealousy, hatred
and murder that was present at Calvary. Then, take an honest look in your
own heart and you will have to admit to the same capabilities.
Fortunately, there is good news. God met man's worst with His own
Best. That's why the Cross signifies forgiveness and salvation, a way out of
rebellion and into the family of faith!

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a lot of
ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
-Joseph Wood Krutch

My Angel


in Heaven


5 years have passed.
How much more must we endure,
before the pain that we feel is no more?
It seems as if only yesterday that I heard a voice telling me,
that my son was gone.
NO! THIS CAN'T BE!!
Time now stood still.
My heart pulsated in my throat, I couldn't breathe,
as the memories flashed before me.
No one could've prepared me, for such an unbearable pain.
Words can't even begin to describe.
He was our morning ray of light that broke through the clouds,
starting every ones day off with a smile.
Take a deep look into his eyes, there you'll find a galaxy of stars, and
just as you begin to fall, you realize nothing else in the world matters.

He is, "My Angel in Heaven"

Forever Loved and Never Forgotten.

Mothers and Mothers-to-be,
Your children are one of God's most precious gifts.
Don't let them slip away from you.
Show them just how much you love them, because it's you who helps
them overcome the challenges of every day life.

Always remember A mother's love is endless!

Mail Call
Darkness and loneliness fill my cell
with pain and fear too great to yell.
I wait for the mailman to deliver to me
as I wipe away tears that no one will see.
I pray so sincere with head raised above;
"Please, God, soon send a letter of love."
I long to gaze upon pages so dear,
with riches to bring my loved ones near.
Words of diamonds on pages of gold
a message from heaven as their story is told.
We love you, miss you, pray you'll be free
a treasure-filled envelope just for me.
Please bring memories of joys I once knew
family, friends and things I would do.
The darkness and pain of my cell will prevail
as my name, again, was not called for mail.

Km-


And God's peace (shall be yours, that tranquil state
of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and
so fearing nothing from God and being content with
its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace)
which transcends all understanding shall garrison
and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ
Jesus. (vs 9) Practice .what you have learned and
received and heard and seen in me, and model your
way of living on it, and the God of peace (of troubled,
undisturbed well-being) will be with you.
.. -Philippians 4:7, 9 (AMP)
The world is always talking about peace and everyone is seeking peace
and wants peace, but they look for it in all the wrong places. The Bible talks
a lot about peace and, to be honest, real peace can only come from God. As
you grow in Him and learn more about His ways and build a relationship
with Him you can have a peace you never dreamed of having before.
When you are assured of your salvation and His love for you, knowing
He will work everything out for your best you will be able to sleep at night
without torment. Part of that assurance is knowing that, if He loves you, He
will also take care of your kids and He loves them even more than you do.
A Golden Nugget would be to.give Him all your cares and leave them
W.jb Him so He can work out what is best for everyone involved... ...

I received this bit of prose from a friend of close to 45 years- I don't
have as many friends as some people, but I treasure each one God has put
into my path. Here is how this anonymous piece reads: May you always
have sunshine to greet you wherever you go. A fun loving spirit you never
outgrow. Joy in the journey whatever you do. God's presence to guide you
and help;see you through.
A Great Recipe came from. a local church. Read it carefully and try to
live as it suggests. This piece is also anonymous.
Fold two hands together. And express a dash of sorrow,
Marinate it overnight. And work on it tomorrow.
Chop one grudge in tiny pieces, add several cups of love.
Dredge with a large sized smile, mix it with Lhe ingredients
above.
Dissolve the hate within you by doing a good deed.
Cut in and help your friend if. he/she should be in need.
Stir in laughter, love and kindness, from the heart it has to
come.
Toss with genuine forgiveness and give your friends some.
The amount of people served will depend on you.
It can serve the whole wide world if you really want it to
Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and
patience.. Colossians 3:12, and above all, remember God loves you, and so
do I.

-Rendezvous Full Weekend


Boy Scout Troop 813 hosted the
Calusa Rendezvous at the Hardee
Lakes park northwest of Wauchula
in mid-February.
A total of 14 troops comprised of
at least 125 scouts and 53 adults
attended the event that lasted from
Friday evening until Sunday around
noon. The scouts checked in after 3
and up until 10 p.m. on Friday
night.They were assigned a camp-
site that had been laid out in a pie
shape by coordinator Jerry Strick-
land and began construction of the
main event, their gateway. A meet-
ing of the senior patrol leaders was
held on Friday night and the sched-
ule for Saturday was discussed.
Quiet time started at 11 p.m. and
Taps was played at-midnight ---.
Reveille was ,played at 6 a.m. and,
the day had begun. All of the troops
prepared their own breakfast and


clean-up and the flag ceremony
took place at 8:30 a.m. The senior
patrol leader from each troop con-
ducted the flag ceremony and after
the flag was raised, each Scout
leader was asked to step to his left
and conduct a uniform inspection of
the troop beside him. When this
was completed the troops were dis-
missed to their campsites to change
into more fitting clothing and began
their day of events.
Events included knot tying
relays, fire building, orienteering,
first aid, pioneering and several
.other skills used by the scouts on a
regular basis. The menus ,ranged
from lasagna to roasted duck. After
that event was judged, the troops
-went back to their-campsites to pre,-
pare. supper, arid get ready for the
campfire and Webelos cross over.
During this time a couple of the


Scoutmasters prepared their own
variety of chili which was judged
later that night by the senior patrol
leaders attending the closing meet-
ing.
The campfire was a huge success
and the fifth grade Webelos crossed
over the bridge to the world of boy
scouting. After the excitement of a
huge towering fire controlled by
Scott Kaplan and Sam Fite, the skits
and songs began and lasted for sev-
eral hours.
Sunday morning was a little
foggy but beautiful- nonetheless and
at 8:30 the flag ceremony was held
once again and dismissed to chapel
,led by Skip Calder of New
Beginning Mintistries who spoke to
all of the u'ustworthmess and duty
to' God which is" part of the Boy
Scout law and promise.
'After chapel, the boys were dis-
missed to their campsites to begin,
taking down'their gateways, gather-
ing their belongings and cleaning
,up their area before they started
home.
The Calusa Rendezvous is an
annual event and had been held at
Pioneer Park since its inception and
previous to Hurricane Charley but
because of the damage in 2004, the
event was transferred to Hardee
Lakes and has been held there for
the past two years. It is scheduled
again next year on the same date.

Twenty minutes after baker,
Joe Gregor of Florida, put some
rolls in the oven, the fire alarm
sounded.
Joe pulled out the rolls, and ran
to fight a neighbor's .fire.
When he returned, he put the
half-done rolls back in the oven. In
a few minutes they were done-
crisp and delicious:
Joe told his flour salesman. His
company perfected the process.
Today you can buy Joe's partially
baked rolls everywhere.

F or most of us, having someone to admire and look up to is
important. We need heroes Many of us still remember a teacher,
a friend, a neighbor or a national figure whose actions influenced
our lives in some way.
Today it seems as if there are fewer people we can look up to.
When we are coping with our trials and tribulations, we need a hero
we can trust who sets a steadfast and wise example. We need a
dependable role model.
Jesus of Nazareth was a source of steadfast strength for His
disciples and all those He encountered. He cared for this world and
loved and forgave everyone, no matter what his or her actions.
Let Jesus be our hero! Worship only God and, as Exodus 20:6 tells
us, He will show "...love to a thousand generations of
those who love me and keep my commandments". / *-
Why not learn more about this hero at your
chosen house of worship! t

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger


On April 1, from 4 to 8 p.m., the Friends of Highlands Hammock State
Park will host the first Old Florida Heritage Social. This afternoon of art,
food, music, storytelling and visiting will celebrate the pioneer era of early
Florida and is sponsored by Mid-Florida Federal Credit Union.
Highwayman artists, Robert Butler and R.A. McLendon Jr., as well as
other artists like Janet King, Alice Hansen, Arthur Armstrong, Barbara
' Wade and Mollie Doctrow, will be on hand with recent works. Doug Kelch
photography and writer Nancy Dale will be here as well. The Back Porch
Revival Old Time String Band, will be performing sweet and sassy old-time
music full of bounce and humor during this event.
The event will take place at the park's Recreation Hall and even the
catering will be well-suited for a spring afternoon in central Florida. There
will be ribs, chicken, swamp cabbage, collard greens, barbecue beans, corn
bread and various liquid refreshments. Best of all, the vittles will be avail-
able for eatin' whenever and however you like.
a Cracker cowboy Hank Mattson will spin yarns and tales of early
Florida around 6 p.m., as long as folks quit dancing long enough for him to
get a word in edgewise. Chances are you may know some of the folks he's
Selling tales about.
n We reckon you'll see folks you know, as many of our heritage families
rn will be there. Don't forget to bring a copy of your favorite family recipe to
include in the upcoming Heritage Cookbook. We want to have some fami-
ly stories to go with those recipes too, so be sure to tell us not just about
Granny's amazing vinegar pie, but also about Granny's childhood growing
up in the scrublands.
n This event is limited to the first 200 people, which could easily be just
one or two of a handful of our pioneer families, so please consider pur-
N chasing your tickets early. Tickets and additional information are available
n by phoning Ann Hardy at (863) 214-6707. Tickets are also available for
n purchase at the following locations, Bonnett Therapeutics, Couture's
Gallery and Highlands Hammock State Park's administration office. Ticket
costs are $20 for adults and $10 for children under age 12.. Additional con-
tributors to this event are Winn Dixie, Kash n Karry and Albertsons.

After Thoughts
By C.J. Mouser


One of the primary keys to knowing how smart we are, is to recognize
on occasion how smart we aren't.
That's probably one of the hardest things we'll ever do; be aware of the
fact that no matter how sure we are of the outcome of a situation, there's
always the possibility that we might be wrong.
History has proven that my husband has the ability and willingness to
hide things from himself.. He's always hunting for something that he swears
he put here or there only to find out that after he put it here or there, he
needed it, and used it, and ultimately put it somewhere else. It's happened
dozens of times. He'll get this sheepish expression on his face after blam-
ing everybody in the house of trying to "mess with his head," turning the
house upside down, and in general just being a bear to get along with.
So, when he called me last Friday morning to tell me that someone had
moved his keys I just sighed.
"I saw them this morning. They're there somewhere." I offered.
"Okay." He said doubtfully, and hung up the phone.
"That was your father." I said to Jenny, as I drove her to school. "He
lost hisakeys."
"Again?"
"Well, of course you know he didn't LOSE them." I said sarcastically.
'"Someone took them or moved them or hid them from him."
She 'giggled.
I dropped her off, bid her a good day and was pulling out of the park-
ing lot of the high school when my cell phone rang again.
"I've turned this house upside down." Fred spat. "They're not here."
I sighed. The man can't find his own behind with both hands most of
the time. This has happened over and over again. He's been known to leave
his keys in some odd places. And how am I supposed to help him fix the
situation from 30 miles away? I don't call everybody in the house when I
misplace something whining I just keep looking until I find them.
"You need to go through the house and check every flat surface. I saw
them this morning .. they're there. You just have to find them."
"I've already done that!" He yelled, and I held the phone away from my
ear in self defense.
"It does no good to get angry. That won't help you find your keys."
"I don't need a lecture, I need my keys!"
"Don't yell at me 'cause you can't find your stuff!"
I hung up on him. I had things to do -- had to go to work. He needed
to calm down and help himself. I don't know what good he thought he was
doing by hanging on the phone yelling at me when all he needed to do was
focus and find those stupid keys. I drove to work, walked in, powered
up my computer and fixed a cup of tea. I was just getting into my own focus
mode when my cell phone rang again.
"Grrrrrrr!" I growled when I recognized his number on my cell phone
display.
"Yeesssss-uh!" I hissed.
"I have been over this house every inch! I have even pulled the
cushions out of the couch!"
I gritted my teeth.
"Fred ..." I began working myself up to telling him that I was going
to turn off my phone if he didn't leave me alone, when he asked me a thor-
oughly ridiculous question.
"There's no way you could have put them in your pocket, is there?"
"Pffft. Yes Fred, that's exactly what I did." I snarled. I stood up and
rammed my right hand into my jeans pocket, checking, just to mollify him.
"Of course I took your keys with me when I left, that makes perfect sense."
I began to pull stuff out of my pocket, then switched the phone to the other
ear and rammed my left hand down into my left jeans pocket.
If I had pulled a full-grown rattlesnake out of that pocket it would have
been better than what I actually found in there. His keys lay in the palm of


Deal Me Out!
By Marjorie Bateman
Hardee Drug Abuse Prevention Coalition


ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE
When was the last time you thought about the people in your life who
are a positive influence on you? Who makes life pleasant for you right here
in Hardee county? The Hardee County Drug Prevention Coalition is col-
lecting stories about people who make a difference. One of the most pow-
erful preventive factors in a person's life is have a positive person in your
life. All too often we do not stop to think about people who help us occa-
sionilly or on a regular basis, whether these people are parents, teachers,
coworkers, friends or an occasional acquaintance that helped in a time of
need.
One common reason for a person becoming involved in the use and
abuse of alcohol or other drugs is a need for help in coping with life. All too
often it seems that our society focuses on the negative to the point where we
can forget to look at the positives in our lives. The Hardee County Drug
Prevention Coalition is sponsoring a project that invites everyone to look at
positive people who have made a difference in their lives. Whether you
think of this person as a hero or an angel in your life we would like to hear
about it.
Take this opportunity to recognize and celebrate someone who has been
a positive influence. Maybe they are a source of continuous help or support
or just someone who happened into your life for a brief period of time. Here
is your opportunity to thank them in a special way. Write their story in 500
words or less and send it into Hardee County Drug Prevention Coalition at
412 West Orange Street, Room 103, Wauchula, FL 33873. All entries will.
be read and evaluated based on criteria developed by "The Angel Project"
and an overall winner will be announced at an award ceremony.
All entries will be published in a collection that will be available for
sale, with the proceeds benefiting the prevention coalition's scholarship
fund for Hardee County students. Some stories may be featured through the
"Deal Me Out" column of The Herald-Advocate.

my hand, staring back at me with insidious glee. (Yes, keys can do that,
when you have irreparably crammed your foot into your own mouth.) I
balled my fist around them and my heart clutched up and shuttered in my
chest like a rusty brake. My brain scrambled for some way to get out of this
situation. The few seconds that went by between my realizing what I knew,
that he still didn't know, were agonizingly long. But try as I might there was
no way for me to lie, cheat or steal my way out of it. "
I have no explanation. I can no more explain why I put his keys -
keys to Vehicles that I never drive, keys to the doors, gates and tool boxes
where he works, the little metal objects that open the very portals to his life,
and without which he cannot function on any level in MY pocket'and
drove away with them.
"Oh my God." I said finally. "They were in my pocket."
The relief of confession lasted a few blissful moments and then I pre-
pared for the backlash.
There was a moment of stunned silence and then the phone.wept dead.
There was only one course of action; I had to drive the 30 miles back home
and eat not crow, but something bigger, much bigger, much more disgust-
ing buzzard, yes eat buzzard, and hand him back his keys ... and apol-
ogize.
IeOn that 30-mile drive I had time to think about how I was going to han-
dle this situation. It was going to be a very long weekend, now that I had
done this dirty deed. I pulled into the yard, located him, handed him his
keys, apologized and immediately started packing to go camping. In 15
minutes I had everything I needed in the truck, announced my intentions
and escaped from what I felt sure was going to be two days of serious pay-
back.
Okay, it was the coward's way out, but even though I am still pretty
sure that I know everything ... and the eventual outcome of any given sit-
uation, I never claimed that I wasn't a chicken.

This past weeK I was blessed with
a call concerning the origin of Fort
Chokonikla. I did not realize at first
that this was the reason when the
Officer from the Bowling Green
Police Department called me the
day The Herald Advocate was pub-
lished last week. I thought quietly,
"Did I park. obstructing a fire
hydrant or safety zone at school
today?" Alas, my fear of a non-exis-
tent parking matter vanished as the
kind officer explained that he was
reading my article about the mural
and that the name, Chokonikla, was
Native American for "burning
house". He said I needed to do more
research why it was called that but
expressed delight that I chose this
topic to highlight in the article.
Okay. I plan to invite this helpful
soul into my first grade classroom
to speak about the importance of
following rules"nbw that school is
in its last two' months and''rfirst
graders seem to think summer vaca-'
tion has already arrived, wth this
warmer weather. The officer did
mention that guest speaking from
staff about safety could be arranged
with permission from my principal.
Back to the subject about the
Fort. I spoke to the Park Manager of
Payne's Creek again, Ranger Jack-
son Mosley, and he added that the
nineteenth century trading post of
Captain George S. Payne and
Dempsey Whidden was burned to
the ground when these two were
massacred by the local Native
American tribes residing near the
Peace River on July 17, 1849.
Hence the Native American word,
"chokonikla" or "burning house"
where the trading post was burned
to the ground. Many do not realize
that Payne's Creek is a Historic
State Park of Florida with several
nature trails to enjoy, with one lead-
ing to the actual site of the trading
post where Payne's Creek joins the
Peace River. If you follow the curve
in the road past the filtration plant
of Bowling Green, the entrance to
Payne's Creek is not much farther
on the right.

God Bless You, and have a won-
derful time if you visit such an
'important monument this spring or
summer!!

FRIDAY

head with a&.clubyflspit on Him;
and knelt down ini mock wor-
ship. After they had their fun,
they took off the purple cape
and put His own clothes back
on Him. Then they marched Him
out tonail Him to the cross.
S .Mark 15:19-20 (ME)

SATURDAY ,
Carrying His own cross, Jesus
went to a place called the Place
of the Skull, which in the Jewish
language is called Golgotha.
There they crucified Jesus. They
also crucified two other men,
one on each side, with Jesus in
the middle.
John 19:17-18 (NCV)

SUNDAY
By now it was about midday and
a darkness fell over the whole
land, which lasted until three in
the afternoon; 'the sun's light
failed. And the curtain of the
Temple was torn in two.
Luke 23:44-45 (NEB)

MONDAY
After this Jesus, knowing that all
was now finished, said "I thirst.
. He said, It is finished," and He
bowed His head and gave up
His spirit.
John 19:28. 30b (RSV)

TUESDAY
Now there was a man called
Joseph, a member of the Jewish
council. He came from the
Jewish city of Arimathea ... He
went to Pilate and asked for
Jesus' body. He took it down
and wrapped it in linen and
placed it in a rock-hewn tomb
which had not been used
before.
Luke 23:50a, 61b (PME)

WEDNESDAY
And as the body was taken
away, the women from Galilee
followed and saw it carried into
the tomb. Then they went home
and prepared spices and oint-
ments to embalm Him; but by
the time they were finished it
was the Sabbath, so they rested
all day as required b the Jewish
law.

NEWS OF INTEREST


There were 17 Red Hat ladies
that went to a local restaurant for
lunch on March 17. We had a good
lunch and a very nice time visiting.
Ev Bates is giving up the leader-
ship, so we need someone to take it
over. Ev did a. great job. We all
appreciate her and the work she put
into it.
We served 200 at the last ice
cream social and 180 were at the
pancake breakfast last Saturday.
Ervin and Marion Williams have
a visitor for a few weeks; their son
is here Ervin Jr., great accent "little"
Ervin. They are all from New
Waterford, Nova Scotia.
At the Barbara Fairchild show we
had a full house. There were 36
people at the Bocci Banquet in
Sebring.
The Bowling League had their
banquet at Sebring too. The
bowler's presented Hazel Roebuck
with a bowling pin from the
Wauchula Lanes, that they had all
signed, to show their appreciation
to Hazel for the work she does with
the bowling league.

THE PINK HAT SOCIETY
The Pink Hat Society is com-
prised of six members, Bob Walker,
Bill Bates, Wally Thorne, Jim
Apple, Bob Johns and Denis
LaChance. The originators were
Bob Walker and Bill Bates. Bob
Walker noticed that Bill Bates
always hung up the washing for his
wife Ev, and he would tease him


about it. At a Monday coffee hour a
few years ago he presented Bill
with a pink hat with clothes pins
attached to it, and Bob also had a
pink hat on at the time. So, knowing
they could have a lot of fun with
this, they decided to surprise some
other men by inducting them into
the society. Wally was the first
inductee, then Jim, Bob Johns and
Denis each was inducted at a-vari-
ety show we have had. Each would
receive a pink hat, pink shorts or a
pink shirt. Since Bob Walker was
never really inducted into the soci-
ety, this was done at the March 13,
coffee hour. Bill presented Bob
with flowers, a new pink hat, candy,
a good sport award and a fluffy pink
pony appropriately called "Pinky".
As this is Bob and Martha's last.
year in the park this induction was'
very emotional for Bob and his pink
hat friends and also for those of us
watching. All of this information
comes from Bill Bates who has
been married to Ev for 51 years.
they have three children, five
grandchildren and two great-grand-
children. They have been in our
park for 12 years. They live in East
Hampton, N.Y. Bill and Ev are on
the church committee and Ev has
been chairwomen of the ladies Red
Hat Society for three and a half
years. Now Bill Bates, whose hang-
ing of the wash brought it all about
will be chairman of the Pink Hat
Society. The guys look forward to
the next man to be the honoree or
"victim."

park this coming weekend, every-

EASTER BASKET EXTREME MAKEOVER
With Easter around the corner, stores and houses will soon be filled
with marshmallow peeps, jelly beans and chocolate Easter bunnies. All of
which are sure to have both the young and the young at heart bouncing off
the walls for days to come and adding excess calories and fat. In fact, it
seems that just about every h; ',y e celebrate in the United States
encourages candy consumption.
By the time the Halloween cay. is gone, Christmas arrives, then
Valentine's Day. St. Patrick's Day brings green cupcakes and other goodies,
and now, Easter is just around the corner! What's a responsible person (par-
ent, teacher, loved one, etc.) to do?
Below are a list of suggestions to fill those.baskets with alternative
treats this Easter season.
Fill the basket with hard-boiled Easter eggs instead of chocolate
candy eggs. A plush bunny, chick or favorite animal can also be a nice addi-
tion.
A small bag of pet treats or a dog bone can be great for a person who
: has a dog or cat or you can make a basket for the family pet as well.
Stuff plastic Easter eggs with stickers and other small items such as
coins. Youngsters love to get money and a small amount seems like so
much to them. Remember to supervise very young children around small
items because they can be a choking hazard.
Depending on the age of the child, consider placing earrings,
bracelets or other small pieces of jewelry inside the eggs.
Sports trading cards, books, bubble solution and a fun new bubble
blower, craft supplies such as construction paper, colorful pencils and
erasers, a packet of flower or vegetable seeds and a small pot to plant them
in and perhaps a deck of playing cards like UNO or Old Maid. These items
- are fun, unexpected and provide an activity to do later in the day.
If chocolate is a must, try chocolate or yogurt-dipped pretzels or
chocolate dipped fruit such as strawberries or orange slices.
Sugar-free gum, packages of cheese in fun shapes, teddy bear-shaped
graham crackers, and sugar-free fruit rollups all make a nice addition to the
basket.
A disposable camera and mini photo album will allow your child to
explore photography. Suggest that your child take photographs of family
members, their room, the backyard, their school and their friends to create
a photo album of pictures of all sorts.
A cookbook, an oven mitt, and cookie cutters will give your children
the opportunity to create an assortment of goodies themselves. Under your
supervision, let your children decide which recipes to make and let them
put most of the ingredients together to give them a sense of accomplish-
ment and creativity in cooking. Try to steer them towards healthy recipes
when at all possible.
For those who are active and like to be outdoors, suggestions include
a pass to a state park, a bike helmet and a water bottle, a pair of sunglass-
es, sandals and sunscreen.
You know your loved ones better than anyone else so be creative with
an eye toward both fun and health and fill the basket with alternatives to the
standard drug store Easter offerings. Try to make a basket that will utilize
and enhance creativity and give the two of you some fun activities to do
together. Making your friend or family member their own Easter basket will
make them feel special,knowing that you thought of them to share the hol-
iday.

Look On The Bright Side
By David Kelly


You are His.
That's as simple as it gets.
I've found recently that grumbling and complaining are great stum-
bling blocks to having a good day.
There is nothing like the Word of God though to set you straight. If you
need a dose of humble pie start there.
Romans 14 is quick to give me and us a reality check. It helps me to
think, "Well who do you think you are Mr. David Kelly? Do you really have
all the answers?"
Verse 12, "So then each of us will give an account of himself to God."
Saved or unsaved, we must face our Maker and give an account to
Him. WOW! If that doesn't make you walk a little straighter, nothing will.
Verses 17-19, "For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and
drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So
then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding."
Grumbling and complaining come from a deceitful heart, peace and
joy and righteousness come from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit allows us
to pursue peace and mutual upbuilding instead of "Why do they want to
do things that way? If they would just ask me I'd tell them the right way to

do it. Gosh! Can't anyone do things right the first time."
Encouraging notes and phone calls and even e-mails can be uplifiting
and build others up in Christ. A kind word in a conversation can do won-
ders as opposed to an aggravating comment or an antagonistic remark
which could last longer and fester into anger and even hate.
How many times in life has someone, maybe a parent, coach, teacher,
former friend, relative, maybe even a total stranger, said something to you
that was hurtful. Many times we remember those words and/or actions for
years. Many of you can stop .reading this right now and think of three or
four instances where people have hurt you with words. Maybe you even
still need to reconcile with someone who has hurt you. Do it today; you
both will feel better for it.
On the other hand, there are many of us who can stop and rattle off
three or four memories where someone really encouraged us with words or
actions. We can look back over the years and see how these words have
helped us to help others. Even a smile has the ability to encourage a lost
soul and a simple how are you, can be the olive branch that brings peace
and joy to a troubled mind.
To pursue peace means you must run after it with the intent of catch-
ing it. Mountain lions don't pursue young deer with half-hearted attempts or
they would all starve. They run like the wind because they understand the
importance of their task.
To live with joy is impossible without realizing who Christ is and what
he has done.
If it were up to us we'd sit around and find faults all day long with the
world and everything in it.
"Oh, George Bush is ruining our country because he won't bring the
troops home; Oh, the Arabs are going to take over our ports and terrorism
will reign; Oh, the Asian bird flu is going to kill everyone in a matter of
months; Oh, FEMA still hasn't paid me my due for Hurricane Charley, Oh,
if they'd just ask me I could fix it..." But living with joy is so much bet-
ter than complaining and whining about what you don't have or won't have
because when you live with joy you get to live with everything you have
right now.
When we really take a hold of verse 8, "If we live, we live to the Lord
and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we
die, we are the Lord's," we begin to understand that only by the inworking
of the Holy Spirit will we bear any. worthy fruit.
You see, we are His whether we profess Christ or not. God is the ulti-
mate judge. He will be just in the end. His justice will be true and Holy. If
you are not a Christian and don't have any desire to know God, I just want
to be up front with you, one day you will know Him and it won't be pretty.
Call upon God today, repent of your sins, and ask Him to save your soul,
start living for Him and not yourself.
We must have faith in Christ. We must believe in the power of the Holy
Spirit and the faithfulness of God. Because, when we doubt God and the
things of God we sin. Verse 23, ". .. For whatever does not proceed from
faith is sin."
Stay in God's Word this month. Be encouraged by Jesus Christ. Let the
