Jury Finds Against School Board


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A federal jury has found in favor
of a former school administrator
here who said his civil rights were
violated when his contract was not
renewed after two years.
The case of Kenneth liames ver-
sus the Hardee County School
Board was tried in U.S. District
Court for the Middle District of
Florida in Tampa last week. The


Former Employee Awarded $79,000


trial spanned Monday through
Wednesday, with jurors deliberat-
ing 2-1/2 to 3 hours before return-
ing their verdict for liames.
The jury awarded liames
$32,000 for lost wages and benefits


and $47,000 as compensation for
"emotional pain and mental
anguish," .for a total $79,000 in
damages.
liames, who served as an assis-
tant principal at Hardee Junior


High School in 2002-03 and 2003-
04, said his First Amendment right
to free speech was violated when
he was not rehired for the 2004-05
school year.
Attorneys for liames asserted his


contract was not renewed for
another year because of an Oct. 6,
2003, School Advisory Committee
meeting during which he spoke out
against a recommended plan for
spending reward money from the


state related to school test scores.

killing two men.


Crash At Annual Fly-In Here Kills 2


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A fatal gyrocopter crash marred
the annual Bensen Days Fly-In last
week.
The Friday accident occurred
shortly before 9:30 a.m. when two
men were on their way to Venice,
said Hardee County Sheriff's
Office spokesman Major Claude
Harris.
Harris said pilot Marvin Terry
Eiland, 59, of Crystal River, and his
-passenger, William F. Finnegan, 62,
of Staunton, Ill. crashed in a pas-
ture off Bennett Road, west of Ona.


Although the first emergency call
came from the Maurice "Sonny"
Clavel Road which leads into the
Wauchula Municipal Airport, site
of the 36th annual Bensen Days
event, the crash occurred about a
dozen miles west of Zolfo Springs
and nine miles southwest of the air-
port, Harris said.
The aircraft caught fire upon
impact and both occupants died in
the crash. About 30 acres of pasture
and scrub were burned before
Hardee County Fire-Rescue staff
could contain the blaze. No homes
were threatened, said a press


release.
The National Transportation and
Safety Board and Federal Aviation
Administration continue investiga-
tion into the cause of the crash, the
first of its kind here since the Fly-In
began meeting here in 1993.
"This is a tragic accident and we
express our sympathy to the vic-
tims, their families and the other
attendees of the Fly-In," said
Harris.
The five-day meeting of rotor-
craft enthusiasts from all over
Florida, many other states and
overseas began March 29 and


ended early Sunday. The event's
name comes from Igor Bensen,
who began modem gyrocopter con-
struction in the 1950s. It now
includes one- or two-seater, open-
or closed-cockpit, ultralights and

SUSPICIOUS FIRE


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A local electricity company is
reducing its rates.
The Wauchula-based Peace
River Electric, Cooperative Inc.
(PRECo) announced Monday that
it was reducing its rates $5 per
1,000 kilowatt-hours. The, change
went into effect on April 1, said a
PRECo press release.
All electric distribution utilities
had raised electric rates last year as
a result of the rise ip fossil fuel
costs associated with the active
hurricane season which was espe-
cially hard on the Gulf states caus-
ing a drop in the production of nat-
ural gas during a time of increased
demand which resulted in short


supply and skyrocketing prices.
PRECo provides electric service
to over 30,000 cooperative mem-
bers and consumers in 10 central
Florida counties stretching from
Hillsborough to Brevard. In busi-
ness since 1940, the member-
owned, not-for-profit cooperative
has over 3,000 miles of power
lines. Since it operates at cost, the
money spent to supply power to
consumers is simply a pass-
through, with as much as 70 per-
cent of the electric rate made up of
the costs of power.
Some stabilization in the fossil
fuels market, primarily natural gas,
has allowed PRECo to reduce to its
Cost of Power Adjustment portion
of each customer's bill.

Circuit Judge Robert L. Doyel
has handed Anthony Elzra Small a
split sentence of 15 years in state
prison followed by five years of
probation.
Small, 36, of 5215 Dixianna Dr.,
Bowling Green, had been found
guilty by a Hardee County jury of
escape, depriving an officer of
means of protection or communica-
tion and theft after a one-day trial
in late February.
Doyel imposed the penalty late
in March after receiving a pre-sen-
tence investigation into Small's
background.
Further, the judge set sentencing

Small in jail in the first place for
April 25. In those four cases, Small

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The weather in Hardee County has been extremely dry in the last sev-
eral weeks. Polk County reported the lowest rainfall in recent history for
March with .22 of an inch.

The valencia harvest is underway with prices bringing about $1.65
cents a pound solids. Florida's orange crop this year is about 154 million
boxes. The harvest of early oranges such as hamlins is over.

Beautiful but potentially deadly ... Friday morning I came within two
steps from being on top of a six-foot rattlesnake.
Son Jonathan and I were walking through a thick hammock of oak
trees and cabbage palms at the Avon Park Air Force Bombing Range.
I heard a loud hiss and stopped in mid-step. In my path six feet ahead
was a large rattlesnake, coiled and ready to strike, rattles rattling.
We stepped back Jonathan aimed his new Browning and asked if he
could shoot it. We watched it a minute or two. Its eyes were focused on me.
The bombing range position is that rattlesnakes should not be killed
there.
Since the snake hissed to give me a warning and did not bite me, we
did not shoot it. We retreated out of the thick hammock. It was camouflaged
well against the brown oak leaves on the hammock floor.. .
Both the snake and I had a close encounter with danger. It.seemcd-like
a religious experience. I did a sudden inventory of my spiritual life and was
thankful for the reptile warning. I'm sure the snake is thankful for its safe-
ty also.
You could say it was a.mutual act of professional courtesy.
I have read that half of rattlesnake bites are "dry bites" (no venom). We
were a 20-minute walk from the truck.

President George W. Bush and his closest advisors obviously did not
read nor would have heeded my columns on Jan. 9 and Feb. 6 in 2003. This
was written shortly before Bush launched a war on Iraq in March 2003 to
topple the Saddam Hussein regime.
On Jan. 9, 2003, I wrote in part: "I think America is too dependent on
oil. We need to promote better mileage in automobiles and trucks and not
use so much energy. America needs to focus on improving our economy
and rebuilding our manufacturing base. We need to weed out.corrupt politi-
cians and business leaders. We need to focus on reviewing our foreign pol-
icy. We need leaders who promote strength and freedom and using military
force as a last resort. Would launching a first strike against Iraq and killing
thousands of innocent men, women and children violate the commandment
of Thou shalt not kill?"
On Feb. 6, 2003, I wrote: "I believe Bush is too pro-war. America can-
not rule the whole world and try to impose its will and democracy on all
countries. Bush cannot expect other countries to refrain from developing a
strong self-defense if they choose to do so. Bush should not declare war on
Iraq. That should be a job for Congress or the United Nations, which was
set up to preserve world peace. When you start hostilities or a war, there can
be many unintended consequences. Bush should not cause the death of
innocent people if Iraq's Saddam Hussein does not attack another country
first. I would like for Bush to explore more avenues of peace and world
goodwill. The new war against terrorism is something new for America. Let
us not make a serious error of judgement and strategy by our chief leader.
I hope Bush does not go over the edge from his apparent hatred of Saddam
Hussein. America does not have a history of attacking other countries first
merely because of a perceived threat. Once an attack begins, you do not
know how everything will turn out. If Bush begins a war, I hope he has the
approval of Congress, the United Nations, and the Creator of life and the
universe. As America's president and commander-in-chief, I hope he makes.
the right decisions. If not, there could be terrible consequences. Time will
tell."
It is now April 2006. One thing has not occurred so far that I feared -
small terrorist attacks in America like were happening in Israel.
The aftermath of the March 2003 attack on Iraq has not gone smooth-
ly or as expected by the Bush administration. Maybe there will be a good
long-term outcome. I hope so.
But to date over 2,300 American troops have died and over 30,000 Iraq
residents have died more than the population of Hardee County. Gas
prices are much higher. The budget deficit is much higher. The trade deficit
Sis much higher.
America still needs vehicles to get better gas mileage overall. The
economy is growing. The stock market has gone up. Very importantly,
America has not been hit with another terrorist attack on our soil.
It will be interesting to see what happens on the national and world
stage over the next few years.

Congratulations to the Florida Gators for their 2006 NCAA basketball
title! "

fixed wing craft.
Gyrocopters have an engine-
powered propeller and unpowered
rotor blades. They were initially
designed by Spanish nobleman
Juan DeLaCierva in the 1920s to
replace the unsafe fixed wing
bomber. The Pitcairn was devel-
oped in the USA in the late 1920s to
deliver mail. Amelia Earhart was
one of those pilots landing on post
office rooftops. She set an auto-


g rocopter altitude record of
18.300 feet which h stood for years.
In the 1950s and 1960s. Bensen.
a Britisher, began the modern era of
gyrocopter construction and in the
late *70's increased the American
high-altitude record to 19.100 feet.

He is also chairman of the
Heartland Work Force Investment
Board for the last tw\o years. "I've
enjoyed that. Work force is directly
related to development. You need a
skilled work force and we've shift-
ed the emphasis from the employ-
ees to employers to help them find
the kind of workers they need."
Another interest for Nicholson
has been the Kiwanis, where he has
been a member 'since 1997 and
became Key. Club. sponsor when,
former leader Steve Wofford'
moved away. "I will miss that. I
enjoy working with youth and their
leadership opportunities." .
About three years ago, Nicholson
read about recruiting of foreign ser-
vice officers and "decided to throw
my name in the hat. I never expect-
ed someone from little old
Wauchula, without a degree in
international studies, to be chosen."
The first hurdle was the written
exams. Based on his scores, he was
invited to oral assessments, and
"stayed in the pot. You move list to
list." The ball started rolling and
moved to security and medical
clearances. About the first of
March, he received "the call" and
told his employees.
He's finding it a bit hard to wrap
up participation in the Hardee
Players, economic development

2003-04 school year. She relented,
however, after Schools Super-
intendent Dennis Jones encouraged
her to give flames a second oppor-
tunity.
When liames' second year "did
not improve as had been hoped," it
was decided that his contract would
not be renewed for a third year, a
School Board lawyer said.
Further, liames said Jones wrote
him a letter following the School
Advisory Committee incident be-
cause of his alternative spending
plan. Jones, however, contended it
was not liames' plan that prompted
the letter, but his public criticism of
Robinson at the meeting.
But on their verdict form, the
federal court jurors found that
liames' "protected speech activity
was a substantial or motivating fac-
tor in the (School Board's) decision
not to renew (Iiames') contract for
employment"
Moreover, they did not believe
the board would not have renewed
liames' contract otherwise.
"We disagree with the jury's
decision, but we will abide by it,"
Jones said following the trial.
"We're glad to have this all behind
us so we can move forward with
the business of educating children."
Jones said no appeal is planned.
"It will be my recommendation to
the board that we not appeal," he
said. "The board can certainly

Richard Nicholson explained the
five types of jobs in 'a foreign'
embassy: "There are the political
folks, the ambassadors and staff;
there is the economic track, budget-
ing and such; there is public diplo-
mancy, the spokespeople; there is
the consulate division, handling
visas, passports and problems of
American citizens abroad.
"And then there is management,
what I'll be doing, the nuts and
bolts of day-to-day functioning, the
motor pool, housing, medical and
security. I'm really looking forward
to it," says Nicholson, as he pre-
pares to head off to the Foreign
Service Institute in Arlington, Va.,
where he will learn which of 300
embassies or consulates around the
world he and his family will go to
first.
"They give us a list of openings
and we prioritize our preferences
'and see what we get," he added.
Nicholson, presently overseeing
operations at the Nicholson Supply
Co. stores in Wauchula and Fort
Meade, grew up in Wauchula and
was valedictorian of the Hardee
High Class of 1984.
He went to Clemson University
where he graduated in 1988 with a

teams He began \,ork for IBM in
Raleigh, N.C. One of his assign-
ments took him to Nice, France.
When he returned to America, he
took a leave of absence and attend-
ed graduate school at Duke
University in Dur-ham, N.C., earn-
ing a Master's Degree in Business
Administration (MBA) in 1993.
During that time, an overseas trip to
Russia further broadened his hori-
zons.
He returned to IBM and contin-
ued work there until after his mar-
riage to Judi in 1995. They moved
back to Wauchula in April 1997.
Since coming back to his home-
town, Nicholson has been active in
the community, an interest he hopes
to extend to communities where he
is assigned overseas.
"The U.S. State Department
encourages local participation as a
way to show others that Americans
are normal and friendly." He will
continue his membership in Ki-
wanis International, which is active
in many foreign countries.
Nicholson has also been active in
the local community as chairman of
the Economic Development Coun-
cil (EDC) and Industrial Develop-
ment Authority (IDA) of which he
has been a member since 1999. He
has been instrumental in locating
the Hardee County Commerce Park

WEATHER SUMMARY
Nearly all localities recorded no measurable rain for the week of March
27 through April 2, except for Ft. Lauderdale which reported traces for the
week. The conditions favorable for wild fire outbreaks continued to
increase during the week. At the end of the week, the National Interagency
Coordination Center reported two forest fires, one in Santa Rosa County
and another in Miami-Dade County. Cold temperatures at the beginning of
the week gave way to hot days and mild nights by the end of the week.
Temperatures for the week averaged normal to five degrees below in the
major cities. Daytime highs.averaged in the 70s with most localities record-
ing at least one high in the 80s. Nighttime lows averaged in the 40s, 50s and
60s. Several areas reported at least one low in the 30s while Tallahassee,
Alachua and Brooksville recorded at least one low at 29 degrees.
FIELD CROPS
Field work in Washington County stopped with the germination and
growth of plants slowed by frost and drought. In Jackson County, produc-
ers continued to prepare fields for cotton and peanuts with planting to begin
over the next two weeks, barring cold weather. In Jefferson County, small
grains need rain. Sugarcane harvesting is virtually done around Lake
Okeechobee. Soil moisture supplies over the southern Peninsula are most-
ly short to adequate. Elsewhere, soil moisture is rated short to mostly ade-
quate. Counties reporting areas of very short soil moisture supplies includ-
ed Washington, Gadsden, Baker, Marion, St. Lucie, Palm Beach, and Lee.

VEGETABLES
Planting and harvesting remained active in central and southern
Peninsula areas as growers started to satisfy the mid-April holiday demand.
Potato growers in the Hastings area continued to plant with some acreage
double cropped following the cabbage harvest. In Jefferson County, water-
melon planting is finished. No major damage was reported in the
Immokalee area from the recent storms and cold weather. Tomatoes in the
Palmetto-Ruskin area suffered no significant damage from the recent cold
weather with picking to get underway by mid-April. Blueberry harvesting
got underway in central Peninsula areas with a very light volume available.
Other vegetables and non-citrus fruit harvested during the week included
snap beans, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, escarole, lettuce,
potatoes, peppers, radishes, squash, strawberries, sweet corn and tomatoes.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pastures are greening up with the warm tempera-
tures, but very little growth. Growth of clover overseeded in pastures is way
behind. Most cattlemen continue to feed hay. The calving season is mid-
way on beef cow and calf operations. There is a demand for high quality
feed. Winter small grains and ryegrass pastures need rain. Permanent pas-
ture is slow to emerge due to late frost and low moisture last week. Pasture
in the Big Bend area was in poor to fair condition. In the southwest, cat-
tle condition is very poor to good with most in fair condition. Pasture was
poor to fair due to drought. Statewide, cattle condition ranges from poor to
good condition with most in poor condition.

CITRUS
Daytime temperatures across the citrus belt became increasingly
warmer throughout the week with all areas reaching the mid-80s by the
weekend. No rainfall was recorded in any of the monitored stations. Lack
of rainfall for the past several weeks caused growers to continue regular
irrigation programs and in some cases increase irrigation frequency. The
dominant grove activity included spraying and herbiciding with some care-

Step Outdoors
With Michael Kelly


Well, another weekend has come and gone,-and I still have not gotten
a gobbler.
Friday afternoon I headed back to the Avon Park Air Force Range for
another crack at the bird that has been eluding me all season. I arrived at
camp that my brother Jonathan and dad Jim already had set up I quickly
changed clothes and headed for the woods to try and roost a turkey.
Whenever I arrived at the first place I wanted to roost I saw my dad's
truck already there so I went on about a mile down the road. I decided to
1 ry a place that I knew held a lot of turkeys, but I had not hunted it all sea-
son.
J The sun was starting to set by the time I got out of the truck. I grabbed
a flashlight and one call and struck out down an old logging road. After
2 walking about a mile down into the area I wanted to go, I started to look
t and listen for a turkey. I didn't see or hear anything and proceeded down
"the road.
t(: By this time it was really starting to get dark so I figured all the turkeys
wouldhave already flown up to roost for the night. I tried some owl hoot-
-( ing in hopes of enticing a bird to gobble and give away his position. I still
heard nothing and began walking farther down the road. After taking only
a few steps I saw about six to eight turkeys about 80 yards in front of me.
3 I watched them go around the corner of a clearing and into a big oak ham-
9 mock.-
I knew they were fixing to fly up so I eased up towards them. I was
right. About a minute later I heard several sets of wingbeats about 100 yards
in front of me. I could tell that one of the birds sounded a lot heavier than
O all the others.
Wanting to make sure at least one of them was a gobbler I started doing
,i some calling in hopes of getting one to gobble. They wouldn't respond at
all, so I figured they may have seen or heard me. I decided to stay there
until it got dark.
While I was waiting for darkness, about four different gobblers start-
ng cutting loose about 400 hundred yards farther down the road. Every
time anything would make a noise they would all answer it with a gobble.
I wanted to get closer to them but didn't want to risk scaring off the flock
that had just flown up right beside me.
Under the cover of darkness I eased out of the woods and headed for
my truck. On the walk back I was trying to decide which of these gobblers
to go after the next morning. I assumed one of the seven I heard fly up was
a gobbler but was not sure.
When I got back to camp my dad and Jonathan were already there.
*J They saw one gobbler, but did not know where he roosted. I told them I had
several birds located. We decided that I would try the flock I roosted and
send them towards the other three or four that were gobbling.
S The next morning we were up early in order to position ourselves on
i; these turkeys. It was an extremely dark night, so we had to use a little flash-
light so I could find my way back into the woods.
When we arrived where I was going to set up I told them the other
i turkeys were about 400 yards away and pointed them in the direction of
Shem. I picked out a place to sit in a blown-down oak tree.
i It took about 30 minutes for it to get daylight enough so I could see.
As I expected, the birds I heard the night before picked up right where they
left off. Shortly after daybreak they were fired up and really gobbling a lot.
j'Finally one thundered off a gobble about 100 yards in front of me. It was
p reassuring for me to know that one of the turkeys was in fact a gobbler.
the I felt confident that these birds would fly down and walk back out into
the clearing where I was waiting. This was not the case whatsoever. I wait-
ed and waited and nothing happened. The birds simply pitched down out of
the trees and went the opposite direction. The other gobblers did the same
(thing to Jonathan and dad. We were shocked that with there being at least
fourr gobblers in the area nobody even saw one that morning. But, at least
i we did all have a good time. And you can bet where you will find me again
I this weekend, only this time I will set up on the other side of these birds,


Nutrition Notes

HEALTH CLAIMS ON LABELS: THE WHOLE STORY
Many foods now carry a label identifying them as sources of fiber or
other substances that can lower the risk of heart disease or other health prob-
lems. In approving such claims, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) requires companies to clarify how a food offers benefits within an
overall healthy diet. But consumers may still miss the details and overesti-
mate the impact of a particular food, especially with only occasional use.
For example, products containing at least 6.25 grams of soy protein in
a standard serving are allowed to carry a health claim linking soy foods to a
lower risk of heart disease. This benefit has been demonstrated .through stud-
ies in which 25 grams of soy protein are consumed daily and are part of a
diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. While research supports the poten-
tial benefit of soy protein and certain other foods as real, consumers still
need to carefully read labels. Otherwise, they may not understand that as



and hopefully I can finally get one.

My brother Jeremy had 4 little more luck Saturday morning than we
did. He went with friend Kevin Sanders, and it didn't take long for them to
get a bird.
The morning did not start off so well when they woke up 45 minutes
late. They quickly got their gear together and hurried to the woods. When
they arrived it was already getting daylight so they quickly set up.
They could hear a few birds gobbling from their roost a few hundred
yards away. They did some calling and began to wait. After not hearing or
seeing anything for about 30 minutes they both began doing a lot of call-
ing.
This drew a response almost immediately, as a bird let loose a gobble.
Soon they could see a bird strutting about 100 yards in front of them. The
bird would run about 20 yards and then stop and strut some more, then run
some more and stop and strut. He kept doing this until he made it into the
decoys they had placed 15 yards in front of them. When he began to get ner-
vous Jeremy raised 'and shot, sending the bird down.

much as tdfour servings every day might be needed to achieve tht, benefit.
Not only does that mean occasional use might not make a significant impact,
it also means you can't expect a day's recommended amount to compensate
for the fat and cholesterol intake of a supersized burger and fries.
Foods containing specific amounts of two particular kinds of dietary
fiber have also received FDA approval to claim they will lower the risk of
heart disease. The two specific fiber sources authorized for this claim are
beta-glucan, found in oats and oat bran, and the husk or outer layer of the
psyllium seed. A food bearing this health claim must be a significant source,
containing at least 0.75 gram of beta-glucan or 1.78 grams of psyllium husk
per standard serving. Furthermore, the FDA requires the food label to note
that research links lowered risk of heart disease to the consumption of at
least three grams of soluble fiber from oats, or at least seven grams of solu-
ble fiber from psyllium husk each day. As the label must explain, this means
the benefits demonstrated in research may require four servings of these
foods daily. Labels must also remind consumers that heart disease risks are
lowered when these foods are used as part of a diet low in saturated fat and
cholesterol.
Do consumers understand this? Or do they expect one bowl of cereal to
meet the minimum required amount of one of these fibers to lower risk?
Another approved claim states that the risk of some cancers may be
lowered by diets low in fat and high in the fiber found in grain products,
fruits and vegetables. To carry this claim, a food must meet the legal defin-
ition for being low in fat and a good source of fiber. The American Institute
for Cancer Research emphasizes that healthy eating habits can substantially
reduce our risk of many cancers. But it is not the addition or avoidance of.
any one food that protects us; it's the overall balance of foods in a plant-
based diet of appropriate portion sizes.
Of course, that's what the food labels say. Yet how many consumers
believe that a bowl of raisin bran cereal or a serving of broccoli is all that's
needed to reduce their risk of cancer?
Health claims on food labels are not a problem. The FDA is quite care-
ful in limiting claims to those that are supported by substantial research. And
the labels require wording that shows how individual foods fit into an over-
all healthy diet. Health claims can help us select a whole-grain bread, calci-
um-enriched juice or low-fat entree. We must need to remember that each
healthy selection is just one puzzle piece in the overall picture of good
health. One food can never complete the entire picture on its own.

Cats Divide District Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat nine split
district games last week.
The Cats traveled to Bradenton
to beat Braden River 8-3 before
Friday's jaunt to Avon Park in a 3-
2 loss.
This week, the Cats hosted
Sarasota Booker on Tuesday and
journey up to Auburndale today
(Thursday). Next week is another
pair of district encounters, these on
*the road at DeSoto Tuesday and
Palmetto on Friday.
The season ends with home
games April 17 vs. Lemon Bay and
April 19 against Auburndale and
~he April 20 finale at Fort Meade.
The Class 4A-District 10 tourna-
ment is April 24-28 at Charles R.
;Head field in Avon Park. With its 7-
'2 district record, Hardee remains in
the top spot, depending on the final
,three district games.

.HARDEE 8, BRADEN RIVER 3
Player Of The Game


Palmer led off with a single but was
caught stealing. With two away,
Lance Benavides singled and raced
home on an Abbott double to deep
right field. Braden River was three
up, three down.
In the top of the fourth, Hardee
went down in order. The Pirates
plated one run on a hit, stolen base,
sacrifice and single.
The fifth stanza was quiet for
both squads. A walk and an error
left two Pirates on base.
The Cats sent 10 batters to the
plate in the top of the sixth. Lance
Benavides opened with a walk,
went to third on another Gilliard
double. Cody Gullatt drew a walk
to load the bases. When Jarrett
Benavides was hit by a pitch,
younger brother Lance came home.
A Justin Altman single.kept the
parade going, scoring Gilliard and
Gullatt. Palmer tripled down the
right field line to bring more team-
mates Jarrett Benavides and
Altman in. Palmer came home on a
Krause single.
Braden River was able to get one
run in the home half of the sixth on
an error and long single.
The Shumard double in the top of
the seventh only left him stranded
when the third out occurred. The
Pirates took advantage of a walk,
hit and errant throw for one more
score in the bottom of the seventh,
making the final score 8-3.

AVON PARK 3, HARDEE 2
Player Of The Game


!


Davaris Strange singled up the
middle for the Devils in the home
half of the inning. He got to second
on a Johnny Sedlock bunt sacrifice
but was left there when the next
two batters were out.
Hardee scored again in the top of
the second. Jarrett Benavides
skipped a hit past the shortstop's
stretch to left field and went to sec-
ond on an error by the leftfielder.
Altman smacked a hit up the mid-
dle just out of reach of the second
sacker and Benavides hurried
home. Chris Bigelow singled to


right field but a fielder's choice
resulted in out three. Hardee had a
2-0 lead. Paul Conrad singled and
was stranded by the Red Devils.
Each team went down in order in
the third inning. In the fourth,
Shumard was safe on an error and
Gilliard singled to left field. The
duo was left on the bases when
back-to-back outs ended the effort.
Avon Park got Taiwan Perry aboard
with a walk. He raced to second on
a wild pitch but was left there.
The fifth inning was uneventful.
In the sixth, Hardee left Abbott
stranded after he had smacked a
double to the center field fence.
Avon Park bats came alive in the


home half of the sixth, enabling the
Red Devils to knot the score 2-2.
With one away, Lee Albritton drew
a walk, advancing to second on a
Matt Devlin hit. When Conrad
dropped a shot in right center,
Albritton scooted home. Catcher
Luke Sedlock hit a high one off the
right field line just out of reach of
the diving Gilliard. Sedlock took
advantage, bouncing one past sec-
ond to score Devlin and leave run-
ners on the corners. Hardee got the
third out without further damage.
A Palmer single to right center
went for naught in the top of the
seventh.
The Red Devils took the opportu-


nity for last at-bat to score the win-
ning run. With one away, Strange
singled to deep short. Johnny
Sedlock slapped a shot past the left
fielder and the speedy Strange
raced home with the winning run to
the roar of the jubilant home crowd.
"It was just a tough loss. We
played well and came up on the
short end. We do the best we can.
We are still in first place in the dis-
trict, with two wins over Sebring
and scoring the most runs in the
two games we split with Avon
Park," said obviously disappointed
Wildcat coach Steve Rewis.
The Cats are 7-2 in the district
and Avon Park is at 6-2.


#6 Briant Shumard
The Cats picked up their seventh
^district win in last Tuesday's trip to
play at Braden River.
Senior James Basey faced 31 bat-
ters in recording three strikeouts,
and allowing four hits and four
walks. Four Wildcat errors also
helped the Pirates.
Junior Briant Shumard stroked a
single and a double, and "made
,some nice defensive plays," to earn
TPlayer of the Game honors.
Hardee stranded Will Krause in
he first inning. He got to third on a
ance Benavides hit, but a double
Ilay took out Benavides and
Iobbie Abbott to end the at-bat.
Braden River was retired in order, a
'double play taking out the only run-
'her.
Hardee got on the board in the
top of the second. Shumard singled
to left and got to third on a Brad
"Gilliard double. Shumard scored on
Sa wild pitch and Gilliard came in on
a Jarrett Benavides sacrifice. The
,Pirates left the bases jammed after
a pair of walks and an error loaded
them.
The Cats picked up an insurance
run in the top of the third. Weston


#14 Weston Palmer
This was a classic Hardee-Avon
Park game, with the Red Devils
hoping to avenge an 8-3 loss to the
Cats in Wauchula.
Junior pitchers, right-hander Will
Krause for the Cats, and lefty
Johnny Sedlock for Devils, went at
it for seven full innings, backed up
by strong defenses.
Hardee got on the board in the
top of the first with a pair of errors.
Palmer's hard hit hopped off the
glove of the third sacker. An
attempted pickoff went awry and
Palmer ended up at third on the
play. With one away, a Lance
Benavides hit brought Palmer
home.


In our life there is a single color,
as on an artist's palette, which
provides the meaning of life and
art. It is the color of love.
-Marc Chagall

Termites Are Swarming!


It is that time of year again. If you find that these little bugs
have invaded your home, please give us a call. Since 1998,
The Heartland Bug Doctor has treated hundreds of homes
here in Hardee County for these subterranean termites and
we have had no retreats. The reason is simple. We use the
best chemical, we mix it at the proper rate, and we put it
everywhere it belongs. The reason termite treatments fail is
one or more of these 3 factors are compromised in order to
get the lowest price. We never compromise and we always
kill the termites. If you find swarmers in your home, call us
and use this ad to get $100 off of the treatment of your home

Split Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
-.The Hardee Junior Varsity
Wildcats posted a win and loss in
games last week.
':While their classmates were on
Spring Break, the young Cats won
at Lake Placid on Tuesday 8-5 and
lost on Friday 5-1 in the opening
game of a double-header at Avon
Park.
-The split in games leaves the
junior Cats with a 6-5 record with
three home games remaining on the
schedule. Tuesday they greeted
Braden River. Next week is the
final pair of games, Tuesday
against DeSoto and Friday hosting
Palmetto.
At Lake Placid on March 28,
ardee stretched a second-inning
ad for the 8-5 win.
Both teams were up and down
quickly in the first inning. Will
bbott was safe on an by the third
hacker and Lake Placid got a single
nd walk off Kaleb Saunders to
Strand two runners.
In the top of the second, howev-
fr, Hardee sent nine batters to the
plate. Brek McClenithan singled to
start the hit parade, advancing on
in error and coming around to
core on a Josh Rodgers hit.
Michael Dixon drew a walk and
')oth. scored on a Tony Martinez
ingle. He was out stretching for
second.
Saunders drew a walk and moved
along on a Ben Krause sacrifice,
'tolen base and passed ball to put
i-he fourth run on the board. Will
Abbott and Dan Timmons both
walked. After a double steal,
Abbott scored on a balk. When it
..nded, Hardee had a 5-0 lead.
The junior Dragons came back
with one run on a pair of hits and an
error. They picked up another tally
.I the home half of the third on a
lit, hit batsman, pair of fielder's
Choices and a single. Another
)ragon scored in the fourth inning
on a walk, long single and fielder's
choice. It was 5-3.
I After a quiet fifth and sixth
lnings, Hardee plated another trio
of runners in the top of the seventh.
')immons led it off with a double
,nd scored on an error on a pickoff
attempt. Will Abbott and
fcClenithan stroked back to back
singles. Abbott scored on. an error
?y the catcher Ad McClenithan
,,rossed home plate on a Tyler
2obertson sacrifice.
The Dragons tried to rally in the
'ottom of the seventh, but reliever
tarl Basey came in and shut them
siown after a single, passed ball, hit
Latsman and another passed ball
allowed twin tallies. Basey allowed
walk, but got a strikeout and pair

of groundouts to end the game.
At Avon Park on Friday after-
noon it was a different story.
Timmons was on the mound for the
first four and one-third innings.
Basey again came on in relief,
allowing only a solo homer for the
remainder of the game.
Hardee got its only score in the
top of the first. Krause drew a walk,
but was picked off first by left-
handed Red Devil hurler Shevas
Hicks. Will Abbott then drew a
walk. He stole second and went to
third on a Timmons sacrifice. A
McClenithan hit to right field
brought Abbott home. It was 1-0.
Avon Park went down one, two,
three in the home half of the first.
Hardee followed suit in the top of
the second. Avon Park got Kyle
Jackson aboard on an error in the
bottom of the second but was
stranded. Hardee left Rolertson
aboard in the top of the third.
Avon Park tied the game 1-1 in
the third inning. Hicks fouled off
the ball until he earned a walk.
Terrell Connor beat out a slow
grounder. With Calvin Rosa at bat,
Connor was picked off first. An
attempt to get Hicks out at second
went into the outfield and allowed
him to come all the way home.
Rosa grounded out. Logan Hunter
drew a walk but was left on base
when the next batter struck out.
In the top of the fourth, Hardee
stranded McClenithan and Ryan
Abbott after each had walked.
Avon Park picked up a pair of
runs in the bottom of the fourth.
Jackson was safe on an error as a
bad bounce got past the second
sacker. Buddy Duke then doubled
over the left fielder's head to put
runners on second and third. A
,Sergio Duran sacrifice fly got
Jackson home and a passed ball put
Duke at third, ready to come home
on a Hicks hit up the middle. It was
3-1.
Hicks struck out the Hardee side
in the top of the fifth. Meanwhile,
the junior Devils added an insur-
ance score. Rosa walked on four
straight pitches and advanced on a
Hunter sacrifice. A pair of wild
pitches while Heath Barnes was at
bat brought Rosa home and Basey
to the mound. He got a pair of bat-
ters to fly out to end the inning.
Avon Park's only other tally was
in the sixth when Rivera hit the left
field fence above the home run
stripe, making the final score 5-1.
Hardee ended the game quickly
with a three up, three down effort in
the top of the seventh, including a
pair of Hicks' strikeouts, giving
him 10 for the game. Hardee pitch-
ers combined for five strikeouts.

FORGIVENESS AND UNDERSTANDING
Recently I ran into an old friend and how fortunate it was that I did.
16e had not talked for several years and both gone through major events in
ur lives. Before we had parted ways there had been, as we both agreed,
-rsonality differences between us. Over the years both of our fathers had
Sssed away, and there had been several changes in our professional and
irsonal lives, Amazing isn't it that in all of our differences that we had so
auch in common. Even though it had only been a short time we both had
hanged, we both have grown and we both admitted that we could have
ibne things different years ago.
But that's what life is all about right? Live and learn, forgive and for-
get. After talking for some time, I believe we both came away remember-
ig the good times and realizing that we had some of the best times of our
dtireers when we worked together. We understand now that we made mis-
akes and now have forgiven each other and are better for it. Jesus taught
Peter in Matthew 18:21-22 about forgiveness;"Then Peter came to Jesus
hid asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins
ainst me? Up to seven times?". Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven
es, but seventy-seven times."
We ask for forgiveness from Jesus all the time don't we? And the Bible
lls us that Jesus forgives us every time because of his unconditional love.
',6w arrogant of us not to forgive our brothers and sisters time and time
ain when Jesus does. We should all be more "humble," as my Christian
rather conveyed to me, or more specifically humble ourselves. Jesus
,arns us not to be boastful or prideful or full of ourselves but to humble
ourselves before the lord.
l n courage everyone to talk with the ones you can not bring yourself
> forgive and be more like Jesus, how much better will you be after grant-
ig forgiveness? I'm grateful that my brother forgave me for my shortcom-
igs in years past. It has brought a peace to a part of my life that weighed
heavily on me more than he is even aware of. Even though we had our dif-
rences I believe we have grown closer now understanding what we
ned from our adversities. I consider him one of my closest friends.
Consider the following and I hope you can apply it to your life as I
ve to mine.
4 May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant
to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of
faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on
the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
May you give forgiveness as much as you receive it.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul
the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love it is there for each
and every one of us to embrace.
SGod bless you and your families and have a wonderful, and thankful
f. L -* ./..

CLASSIFIED ADS FOR LOANS
Recently I received a phone call from a Naples resident who was swin-
dled out of $700 in an advance fee loan fraud. Advance fee loan frauds
aren't new. The problem is, they keep popping up.
Most victims fall prey to a misleading classified advertisement in the
local newspaper that's says money is available for loans. The ads usually
run under the financial or personal sections and say something like this,
"Cash loans for any purpose, bad credit ok."
The people who place these ads are not lenders, do not represent
lenders and have no intentions of giving you a loan. They know that if you
are responding to a classified advertisement then you are probably desper-
ate and unable to get a funding through a conventional lending source like
a bank.
The classified ad lists a toll free number so you can apply for the loan
over the phone. When you dial the number you get an answering machine
or a "loan officer" who asks about your needs. These unlicensed loan bro-
kers use fake names and act sympathetic about your financial hardship as
they lure you in.
You will be required to provide lots of personal information. The ploy
here is to make you believe you are completing a loan application. In real-
A ity, it is more likely the information will be used to steal your identity. At
[is some point the broker says he or she will call you back after an underwriter
y, or manager has reviewed your application. After the nonexistent loan is
approved by the nonexistent underwriter you are asked to send an advance
fee or good faith deposit.
The fee or deposit is usually a percentage of the loan amount. For
example, if you want $10,000 then you may be asked for 5 percent of that
amount, $500.
)n The swindler asks you to mail a money order to a post office box out-
et side of Florida or wire money via Western Union. Money orders are
p-. requested because they are as goqodas cash and difficult to trace. If the fraud
involves a businesssJan. the scam may go on for much longer ,while the
swindler keeps you on'the ho ," _
With business loans'the waiting period can 'ary from several months
to a year or more. While waiting for the loan you are frequently asked to
provide more information about your business or finances. This is a stalling
tactic. Requesting more information gives the impression that your loan
application is being processed and will be funded. Often, even when you
provide the requested information, you are told that the data is incorrect or
insufficient. That gives the crooks more time to work the scam.
After a while, most victims of business loan frauds grow tired of wait-
ing and become seriously concerned. That is when you realize you have
been defrauded. By then, the loan broker's phone is disconnected, the office
is closed and the broker is nowhere to found.
Another caveat. Don't think that because a classified ad is running in
the newspaper that the newspaper has checked its credibility. In fact, most
newspapers don't check advertisements for truthfulness. Turn to the classi-
fied section of newspapers or magazines and you will likely find some form
of disclaimer, saying it is your responsibility to investigate before doing
business with the person of business that placed the ad.
The above information is important to remember because fraudulent
ads regularly appear in newspapers. The phone numbers and sales pitches
may be different but they all lead to the same dead end. You respond, you
send money, you are ripped off.

Outta' The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission


DUCKS MORE THAN THEY'RE QUACKED UP TO BE
Well, I hope all you turkey hunters in the South Hunting Zone took a
; nice bird or two this year as your season is coming to a close. For those of
us in the rest of the state, we still have until April 23 to bag us a good long-
beard. But after spring gobbler season, there's really not much hunting to
talk about, so I'd like to tell you about another bird one that needs our
help.
As Easter approaches, many parents buy mallard ducklings for their
children. We've done that for generations, but consequences have caught up
with us.
These ducks can live 10 years. They might make nice pets while they
are still small enough to fit in your hand, but when they become full-grown
and the novelty wears off, people often grow tired of caring for them and
I-decide to turn them loose. Most don't realize that it is against the law, and
these mallards pose a serious threat to Florida's native wildlife.
Besides making it illegal to release mallards, Florida law also requires
anyone possessing, buying or selling mallards to have a permit from the
Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC), and the birds must be kept in a cage
as long as they live.
One reason for this rule is that domesticated ducks can transmit dis-
eases and compete with native wildlife for food and habitat. It's actually
illegal to release any animal into the wild if it poses a disease hazard. But
the most important reason is releasing domesticated mallards into the wild
ji threatens the existence of the Florida mottled duck.
i The Florida mottled duck, also called the Florida duck, is a unique sub-
species found only in peninsular Florida. It keeps to a small home range in
inland and coastal wetland ecosystems.
4| To hunters, the mottled duck is a highly prized game bird found in
many ponds, lakes, rivers, marshes and canals in central and south Florida.
They are large ducks, brownish in color, with both sexes being darker than
a mallard but slightly lighter than a black duck.
This species is one of only a few nonmigratory ducks in North
America. The mottled duck spends its entire life within Florida.
In the spring, wild mallards fly north to breed and are not present when
.the mottled duck mating season begins. On the other hand, store-bought
Smallards don't migrate and instead become established, year-round resi-
dents of Florida. These domesticated mallards crossbreed with mottled
ducks and produce hybrid offspring. The offspring are fertile, which com-
pounds the situation. Each year, there are fewer purebred mottled ducks
Left, and the trend is driving the Florida mottled duck toward extinction.
Communities around the globe have seen similar problems. In New
Zealand, domesticated mallards, released to provide hunting stock, have
devastated the local grey duck populations. Now, 95 percent of the grey
ducks in New Zealand are hybrids.
The Hawaiian duck is another example. This endangered bird has been
all but completely hybridized and may be genetically intact only on the
island of Kauai.
Meller's duck in Madagascar is yet another example.
The fate of the Florida mottled duck could be similar as its population
is relatively small, estimated at only 30,000-40,000 breeding birds. FWC
biologists say between seven and 12 percent of the state's mottled ducks are
showing genetic evidence of hybridization.
Floridians purchase more than 12,000 mallards a year, and many of
them make their way into nearby waters. Given these alarming figures, plus
the fact the population of mottled ducks is small, it wouldn't take long for
the Florida mottled duck to disappear.
,, The solution starts with not .buying your child a mallard duck for
Easter.
as. To go a step further, don't feed or shelter domesticated mallards; help
, spread the word; and consider requesting permits to remove any that may
-'1live on your property.

After Thoughts
By C.J Mouser


Apparently there's no age limit on responding to the call of the wild.
It was well after dark and I was sitting on the front porch, watching the
hogs under the yard light as they rooted around for the final bits of feed that
they might have overlooked.
I heard a dog barking just as clear as day way back in the grove. Most
dogs around here are accounted for, so I knew it was a stranger and sound-
ed like it was baying a hog. This is not good. Sometimes a hunter's dog may
get away from him, and these dogs might not always make the distinction
between a "wild" hog and a "tame" one. I went to alert my husband.
"Fred. There's a dog out in the grove." I said, sticking my head through
the front door.
"How do you know?"
He came from the kitchen to the front porch. It was dark out there, and
we couldn't see a thing, but we both squinted that direction anyway.
"I heard it barking." I said. About then it yowled again. No mistake, it
was after something. So Fred rousted our son Jake.
"There's a dog baying out back," he said.
The boy came running, tripping all over the skis he calls feet.
"How do you know?" he asked, eyes all round and serious.
The apple clearly doesn't fall far from the tree.
"Listen!"
There it came again, frantic barking through the darkness, lifting eeri-
ly over the treetops like the wail of a banshee. Whatever it was after, it was
closing in.
"Want me to go check?" Jake asked, a grin splitting his face. It was a
redundant question; in his mind he was already gone.
"You ought not go back there by yourself." Fred said.
"Why not?"
"You might get hog cut, and you'll bleed to death before you can make
it back."
"I'll be all right," he argued.
A second later he ran for his flashlight while Fred peered at me in the
dim glow of the porch light.
"If I wasn't so old and crippled up, I'd go with him," he said, looking
wistful.
"That's the h--- of it." I said, and we shared a moment of complete
understanding about things our minds want to do and our bodies deny us.
Jake found his way back to the front yard, flashlight in hand. He picked
up a short length of rope and began to coil it around his hand as he listened.
I nudged Fred and we smiled at each other, knowing the propensity Jake has
for catching things of the swine persuasion.
"We don't want that hog, Jake." Fred warned.
Jake gazed across the yard at us, his eyes shining in the light.
"Neither do I." He replied. "I want that dog."
"Well, I want 'em both gone. Let me get the tractor and I'll go with
you." Fred said firmly.
Then they were gone, the tractor rumbling away carrying man and boy
... or two men or two.boys ... depending on how you look at it. I sat
down and stroked my pup Mooch's head. Like Fred she wanted to go,
although rather than being old and tired, she was too young, but that didn't
stop her from barking like mad and wiggling all over. We sat together and
listened to the tractor motor grow fainter and suddenly there was silence.
Also gone was the barking of the strange dog. I suspected that the tractor
would scare the dog and the hog off, and I'm sure Fred did too. This little
foray into the grove had nothing to do with catching a wild hog, or even the
dog. It was pure fun is all it was. An excuse to traipse into the darkness and
see what was what.
Mooch and I sat and watched the headlights of the tractor go back and
forth and occasionally heard Fred and Jake's voices raised above the sound

of the engine, but couldn't make out what was being said. Mooch yawned
- widely and then sighed and lay down on her blanket. I stood, stretched and
went into the house. I don't know exactly when they returned, and didn't
waste my breath asking about what they found, but based on the flush on
their faces and the satisfied air, I would say they found whatever it was they
went looking for. .. even if it was just a little adventure.


SAttitudes On Ag
By Bill Hodge
Retired Farmer & Rancher

The sudden passing of Findlay Pate makes us realize how fragile we
are in life. Findlay's contribution to the Florida and Southeastern states cat-
tle and forage industry was immense and will long be remembered. His 22
years as director of The Research Cattle Station (RCS) at Ona saw great
benefits to the cattle industry from the programs he directed in cattle cross-
breeding and forages. He was always ready and willing to take time to share
with you the results of their programs and his 35 years' experience in the
cattle industry.
I counted him as a good friend and spent hours with him in discussion
on various topics. Our most recent work the past two years was working
with Martin Adjeu and Lockie Gary on the mole cricket problem. We had
planned to start a new series of capturing and testing in April to try and see
the results of our past years' effort. I will miss his quick smile and eager-
ness to help. It's not goodbye Findlay but Dieu vous Garde.
Florida Farm Bureau Day in Washington, D.C. is scheduled for May
22-May 25. Farm Bureau members who participate will have the opportu-
nity to visit with' national lawmakers and department officials and discuss
matters of interest to farmers and ranches. Call Hardee County Farm
Bureau office 773-3117 for more details and to get your name on the list to
go.
USDA officials say they no longer believe that it is possible to eradi-
cate citrus canker. Officials say, based on USDA scientific analysis of the
potential spread of the disease from the unprecedented 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane seasons, anew management plan must be devised. As a result of the
USDA decision, the Florida legislature will have to revisit the laws that
guide the canker eradication program. USDA has already suspended any
payments for removal of canker trees.
The U.S. Senate will schedule a vote in May on the permanent repeal
of the death tax. Senate majority leader, Bill Frist, said there is strong sup-
port for ending the death tax. President Bush's budget for fiscal year 2007
includes a section that calls for permanent repeal of the death tax. Senator
Frist says he will do everything in his power to bury the death tax once and
for all.
American Farm Bureau members at their annual convention in January
cast a resounding vote to extend the current Farm Bill until a new world
trade agreement is reached to increase foreign market access for U.S. farm-
ers and ranchers. A number of U.S. Senators are supporting a resolution to
extend the Farm Bill. They say there is too much uncertainty at present with
world trade agreement proposals to write a new Farm Bill. At this time they
say a new bill would probably not be as good for U.S. agriculture as the pre-
sent bill.
Some lawmakers are considering changing Florida's Greenbelt Law,
which allows counties to assess agricultural land on the basis of its use.
Florida Farm Bureau supports the Greenbelt Law in its current form and
opposes an ad valorem recapture tax. Contact your state senators and rep-
resentatives and discuss the law with them. Farm Bureau's position is the
law should not be changed. County officials have full power under current
state statues to deal with abuses of greenbelt. The Florida constitution pro-
vides that agricultural land may be taxed solely on the basis of its character
and use. Keep the greenbelt in its current form.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson


A NEW TOOL
en "Finally, a tool to help you put God first in everything you do!"
This was the headline I read recently in an advertisement in a Christian
ce magazine. It was announcing a personal planning calendar and appointment
er organizer. A "tool" to help you put God first? I thought that was done
ito through self-denial, prayer and the deliberate practice of thanking God for
everything, even when we don't feel like it!
Evangelicals are inveterate activists., .They ar, .cons.agtly try lng t
)th improve and streamline faith. But e&en Microsoft can't create software that
er will make piety easier, faster, better'!
The Bible tells us that Jesus Himself "learned obedience through the
things that he suffered." Shortcuts were available to Him but He refused to
use them. When arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane, He told His disci-
ples to put away their swords. "Do you think I cannot call on my Father and
He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?"
Self-denial is never fun. It's hard work, but God will give special grace
td folks who are serious.H6 doesn't make it easy because He's in the busi-
ness of building character in people who don't have any, establishing kind-
ness and generosity in people dedicated to their own pleasure. It's a big
turn-around, but He can accomplish it if we'll give Him half a chance.
But we must forget about "tools," gimmicks and self-help programs
*k. that offer to make a piece of cake out of the demands of righteous God.
The Children of Israel found it hard going in the wilderness and they
ws blamed the Lord. We must not make the same mistake. Hang on! Ask God
at for patience and perservance. At the end of the line is the Promised Land.
he It's worth every sacrifice to complete your journey and hear the Master say,
"Well done, thou,good and faithful servant!"

Letter To The Editor

Bible Passage Shows Man

The Way To Get Wisdom


Dear Editor,
During a time of great excite-
ment, my mind was called up to
serious reflection and great uneasi-
ness. Though my feelings were
deep and often poignant, still I kept
myself aloof from all these parties,
though I attended their several
meetings as occasion would permit.
In process of time my mind



Concert H

Funds F(
Tickets are on sale for the first of
two South Florida Community
College Summer Series perfor-
mances. Legendary country singers,
Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin
Brothers, kick off the Series with a
benefit concert on Saturday, May
13 at 7:30 p.m., in the 1,500-seat
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus, Avon Park.
"Following the success of last
year's Three Dog Night concert,
this series is designed to raise funds
for needed SFCC Auditorium reno-
vations," said Doug Andrews, dean,
SFCC Cultural Programs.
Over 40 years ago, Larry, Steve,
and Rudy Gatlin started singing in
their hometown of Abilene, Texas,
and from there they went on to
make music history. Over the
course of a four-decade career that
has taken The Gatlin Brothers from
dusty Texas stages to White House
performances, from Broadway to
Grammy Awards, to the top of the
country charts, there has been one
unifying element: music.
In the early 70s, Larry Gatlin
moved to Nashville to write songs
that would be recorded by names
like Johnny Cash, Kris
Kristofferson, Barbra Striesand,
Tom Jones, and Elvis Presley.
In 1972, Larry landed a solo deal
with Monument Records through
friend Kris Kristofferson and invit-

desire to be united with them, but
so great were the confusion and

ed his siblings up to Nashville to
sing backup on his first two albums
- 1974's "The Pilgrim" and 1975s
"Rain Rainbow." The success of
1977's "High Time" record featur-
ing the number one hit, "I Just Wish
You Were Someone I Love,"
encouraged the brothers to become
an official trio. Over the next
decade, the brothers scored more
than a dozen Top 10 hits. It was also
in 1979 that Larry Gatlin won the
American Country Music's Top
Male Vocalist; "Straight Ahead"
won Album of the Year, and "All
The Gold In California" won Single
of the Year.
Ticket prices for this benefit per-
formance are $22.50, $35, and $50.
Tickets can be purchased by con-
tacting the SFCC Box Office,
weekdays, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., at

Two levels of sponsorships are
available for this performance. For
a $1,000 donation, Gold sponsors
will receive four tickets; for a

Two Wauchulans Place At State


A pair of former Hardee Wildcats
lead also in the classroom and state
competition.
Cale Rasmussen and Ruben
Rivas, both football players and stu-
dents at Webber International
University in Babson Park near
Lake Wales, helped their school
qualify for recognition, bringing
home trophies with their seven
teammates.
Rasmussen placed third in the
Hospitality Management exam and
Rivas placed second in the Sport
Management and Marketing exam
and fourth in the Marketing
Concepts Exam.
They joined nine other members
of their Phi Beta Lambda chapter
who went to the state PBL confer-


ence March 23-24. Based on their
performances, seven students will
go on to compete at the 2006 Future
Business Leaders of America-PBL
national leadership conference
which is being held in Nashville,
Tenn. June 24-27.
At the state level, Webber stu-
dents had to compete with business
leadership students from 28 other
state colleges, including the
University of Florida, Florida State
University and University of
Central Florida. Topics varied from
decision making to accounting
analysis, desktop publishing, finan-
cial concept, business ethics and
marketing to public speaking and
job interviewing.

right and who was wrong.
My mind at times was greatly
excited, the cry and tumult were so
great and incessant. The Presby-
terians were most decided against
the Baptists and Methodists, and
used all the powers of both reason
and sophistry to prove their errors,
or at least to make the people think
they were in error.
On the other hand, the Baptists
and Methodists in their turn were
equally zealous in endeavoring to
establish their own tenets and dis-
prove all others.
In the midst of this war of words
and tumult of opinions, I often said
to myself: What is to be done??
Who of all theses parties are right,
or are they all wrong together? If
anyone of them be right, which is
it, and how shall I know it?
While I was laboring under the
extreme difficulties caused by the
contests of these parties of religion-
ists, I was one day reading the epis-
tle of James, first chapter, fifth
verse, which reads:
"If any of you lack wisdom let
him ask of God, who giveth to all
men liberally, and unbraideth not;
and it shall be given him."
Never did any passage of scrip-
ture come with more power to the
heart of man that this did at this
time to mine. It seemed to enter
with great force into every feeling
of my heart. I reflected on it again
and again, knowing that if any per-
son needed wisdom from God, I
did; for how to act I did not know,
and unless I could get more wis-
dom than I then had, I would never
know; for the teachers of religion
of the different sects understood the
same passages of scripture so dif-
ferently as to destroy all confidence
in settling the question by an appeal
to the Bible.
At length I came to the coriclu-
sion that I must remain in darkness
and confusion, or else I must do as
James directs, that is, ask of God. I
at length came to the determination
to "ask of God," concluding that if
he gave wisdom to them that lacked
wisdom, and would give liberally
and not upbraid, I might venture.
Some of the questions I have:
Where is the prophet, priesthood
keys, and Divine Revelation?
As we know there were prophets
of old such as Adam, Noah, Samuel
and Moses. We all know that these
were great men of God. They had
authority to run the Lord's Church
here on the earth.
They received Divine Revelation
for the world; they had the priest-
hood. How blessed were the people
during those times; they had
prophets who taught the full truth,
not just parts and pieces of the
truth.
We know that God and Jesus
Christ are the same yesterday,
today and forever; so where are
these things now?

Apostolic Lighthouse will con-
tinue revival services again this
weekend. Evangelist Dan Davis
will again be the speaker at nightly
services at 7:30 beginning tonight
(Thursday) and concluding Sunday
with 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. services.
The church is located at 310
Orange St., Bowling Green.
Everyone-' is invited to join in this
special time.


Howard W. Richards was hon-
ored at a retirement reception held
on Thursday, March 23, 2006, at
the Hardee County Civic Center.
Family, friends, co-workers, and
business associates gathered to fel-
lowship and reminisce together
with Howard as he was recognized
for his 28 years of service with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Natural Resources and Conserva-
tion Service (NRCS) Agency.
Howard has been the District
Conservationist in the Wauchula
USDA Service Center since 1985.
Prior to becoming the District
Conservationist in Wauchula, he
served as a Soil Conservationist in
Wauchula and Arcadia, then trans-
ferred into the District Conserva-
tionist position in DeLand, where
he served until he returned to
Wauchula in 1985.
A special pictorial history of
Howard's service to agriculture


along with pictures of friends, fam-
ily and co-workers was displayed
during the reception. A host of
friends and family related fond
memories of Howard and the time
spent with him as he served his
community and the agricultural
producers in this area. Howard was
also the recipient of several special
commendations and certificates of
appreciation which spanned his
career.
He will be sorely missed by co-
workers and by the agricultural pro-
ducers in this community he has so
faithfully served, but is looking for-
ward to a long and well-deserved
retirement, said many who attended
the special event.

The question isn't who is going
to let me; it's who is going to
stop me.

Letter To The Editor

Inmate Does Not Like

Food, Treatment At Jail


Dear Editor,
To the voters and taxpayers of
Hardee County ... I never wrote a
newspaper before but after spend-,
ing the last 10 months in this jail
and seeing the things that I have
saw I just felt an obligation to do so
now.
A couple weeks ago I read a let-
ter another inmate wrote about the
treatment we receive here and com-
pared it to treatment Guantanamo
terrorists receive. Well, actually
this is not true. The "terrorists" are
fed better, they receive the proper
medical attention.
An indigent inmate in this jail in
the free world are denied their basic
needs. Proper nutrition, prepared
by Sheriff J. Loran Cogburn's dieti-
cian, is a joke.
Picture this a piece of light
bread cut in half and two ounces of
apple sauce for breakfast. Half-
cooked pintos, two ounces of rub-
bery green beans, a couple of hot
dogs. Supper rice with watery
gravy, a couple ounces of pudding
for a grown man?
I was a kitchen trusty. You ought
to see the size of the rats in this
place and how nasty the kitchen is.
When they are notified that the
inspector is coming, it is all out
clean-up. They get a two-day warn-
ing that the inspector is coming.
If the sheriff's office is so confi-
dent they are running this great law
enforcement facility, have, some
random inspections from a neutral
inspector. Let a dietician ikho is not
on this payroll look at how these.
portions are and how little they are :
feeding us. ,
They really do serve rotten veg-
etables and guess what? We eat
them because we are that hungry,
and no matter how you feel about
crime, you as citizens cannot allow
this to continue.
Eighty percent of the inmates
here are unsentenced, innocent
until proven guilty. It could very
easily be you or your children in
here, because in J. Loran Cogburn's
mind it don't matter who you are.
If you are in this facility, you will
be mistreated verbally, physically,
mentally. He don't know what
human dignity means. Demand an
investigation. Call prison inspec-
tors. Talk to your county commis-
sioners. Stop these atrocities. Seek
the truth.
Stop telling them when inspec-
tors are coming and them writing
disclaimers about every letter that
gets wrote to this paper. Florida
Statute blah, blah, blah, and deny
everything. Of course they will
deny all of it. They are in the
wrong.
Stop taking their word and
demand an investigation. But most
importantly after you find the truth
out and the next time you go to the
polls show Mr. Cogburn just how
much the good people of Hardee
County appreciate his brand of law
enforcement and his administra-
tion's running of this facility.
Thanks for your time, and by the
way we pay $3.25 a day to be fed
this garbage. They take half of your
money that your family sends you.
So $20 you get to keep approx.
$6.00.
Something is wrong with that,
people, and by the way our dieti-
cian is also the commissary lady.
Surprise, surprise.
Sincerely,

Freda's Foibles
By Freda B. Douglas


ra~$~/~mm.


The air is nippy and the brisk breeze demolished what curl I had, but it's
a glorious day and we shall rejoice and be glad in it.
On days like this when I'm writing my column I just want to make my
readers smile and get that warm fuzzy feeling you get when all is right with
your world.
This week I'm going to quote a verse written by Catherine Slater on a
birthday card from my very best friend. My prayer is that all of you have
the kind of very best friend I am fortunate to have.
The other bit of poetic prose was written by Bob Perks, a very dear
internet friend whom I have never met face to face and might never meet,
but through his writing I have cried him through serious family illnesses,
laughed when he romps with one of his dogs and sympathized with him
through trauma and trials.
"I wish you enough!"
written by Bob Perks (c) 2001
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear
much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough "Hello's" to get you through the final
"Goodbye."
You are my "help put things in perspective" friend.
My "you understand because you've been there" friend,
My "help it's one of those days" friend
There's a lightness of heart that comes from just telling you
about my day and listening to yours.
Whether we solve the problems of the world or not
just because I've got a friend like you to laugh with
everything feels like it's going to be OK.
So Happy Birthday to my "just don't know
what I'd ever do without you"
My Very Good Friend.
Catherine Slater
* Now, I ask of you, do smile at the next stranger you meet. He might
wonder what you're up to, but I'll wager he smiles back. Just remember,
when you're smiling, God loves you, and you, and so do I.

Dixie Belles Have Sh(


Brenda and Danny Terrell cele-
brated their 35th wedding anniver-
sary on March 29 in Bowling
Green. Danny has been a resident of
Bowling Green all of his life;
Brenda has lived here since the sev-
enth grade. They knew each other at
Hardee High School.
I visited Brenda yesterday at her
home, which had been damaged by
ing of Hurricane Charley in August of
s that 2004. Her home is still in the
Road, process of being repaired from what
began as water damage in her front
living room. The front room flood-
ed after the second hurricane,
Frances. The water which carrie
through her bay window continued
'1 to wreak havoc, as her floor
absorbed the moisture like a
sponge. It is now two years later,
,ing and house repairs continue to be
ave made for better living conditions
,my for her and her husband.
all Brenda told me that she is thank-
I of ful that their house was not taken
of during the hurricanes like so many
Iho others in the community; yet the
journey has been long to fix her
ery *house to be a home again, being put
back together piece by piece.
e is "I don't want to see any more
will hurricanes but they will be there
ing again in the future," she reflected.
"We need to always prepare the best
talk we can for the hurricanes and

Successful Book


By LAUREN RAULERSON
For The Herald-Advocate
The children's book Lee-Ann
Paasch illustrated as a summer pro-
ject is now flying off of the shelves.
The book is called "Iowa from
the Sky." The book began when
Paasch's sister-in-law Sharon Rex-
roth saw a need for good quality
children's books. She has previous-
ly lived in Iowa and desired to
change the misconception many
have that Iowa is a dull state in the
middle of nowhere.
Paasch did the illustrations in the
book from cover to cover. All of the
illustrations are watercolor and
very detailed. The book has been
published and, because of such a
high demand in Iowa, is in its sec-
ond printing.
Rexroth wrote a poem about
Iowa which, after a few revisions,


became the text of the book. The
book is from the perspective of
Iowa's state bird, a gold finch,
which flies over Iowa and shows
the reader different towns and cities
in the state.
The finch visits Des Moines, the
Holland town of Pella, the City of
Five Seasons; Cedar Rapids, Sioux
City; and many other key places in
Iowa. The book gives interesting
facts about the cities. For example,
which city in the United States
packages the most popcorn per
day?
The illustrations are unbeliev-
ably accurate. Paasch did much of
her research by gathering brochures
and books on the specific places in
Iowa the book mentions, using
Encarta Encyclopedia, the National
Geographic, and even calling many

.Lee-Ann Paasch poses with the bok she. recently illustrated,
"Iowa from the Sky."


cities in Iowa's Chamber of
Commerce so her illustrations
would be accurate.
Paasch says it takes five hours to
do a page, excluding the research.
In designing the page, Paasch con-
siders the text, the research she has
done, contrast and balancing the
proportions of the page.
She first sketches the sizes and
shapes of the objects she plans to
illustrate. She then transfers the
sketch to a watercolor page. The
page is first soaked to get rid of the
sizing. This allows the paints to
play around.
Once the preliminary steps have
been taken, Paasch says, "I become
lost in it." She also says the key to
watercolor is "not too much."
There are personal stories behind
almost all of the illustrations. For
example, she painted her husband
on one of the pages.
Paasch attends Maranatha Bap-
tist Church in Zolfo Springs where
her husband is the preacher. She
teaches at the small Christian
school at the church. Paasch teach-
es fourth grade students and under
while her husband, Richard Paasch,
teaches fifth grade through ninth.
They both have degrees in edu-
cation and teach a Christian based
curriculum. They teach Science and
Math directly from the Bible. Lee-
Ann Paasch has taught every grade.
She also teaches art to her students.
The book was published by a
Small publisher, Quixote Press who
hasn't ever experienced such a suc-
cessful project. Plans are being
made to make a book for all 50
states. However, Paasch will not be
illustrating all of them.
Paasch is currently working on
illustrating a similar book on the
United States. The narrator of this
upcoming book is of course, the
Bald Eagle. Paasch is also interest-
ed. in illustrating the book for
,Florida.
So what is next for Paasch and
Roxroth? They plan on talking to a
Christian publishing company,
Zondervan, about doing realistic
Christian children's books.
While Paasch has found success
at her doorstep, she has no desire to
leave her community, her job or her
church. She is excited about the,
successful book and is anticipating
future projects, but believes this is
where she is supposed to be.

a coal mine.
At a cost of twenty-five millic
dollars, and at a speed of about
inch a minute, it took them about
month to move the church half
mile down the road.,
One of the great ;songs of ti
church reads, "Like a mighty arn
moves the Church of God." Bu
wonder how long it tbkes to mow
some churches to obey the Gre


on
aEn
a
a


- .ummission.
Our Lord commanded, "Go ino
all the world, and preach the
gospel to every creature."
It's about time we put some
expression to our impression,
some motion to our devotion, and
go with the gospel.

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


THE CHAMP TAKES A TUMBLE,
BUT DAD GETS PINNED
Kyle has been very active physically his entire life. Almost as soon as
he could walk he was enrolled in gymnastics. He took Kung Fu for several
years. He played Tee-ball. He loves all sports and, as I wrote a few weeks
.go, he has excelled in wrestling and has won many championships. He has
traveled to several states to tournaments and he has a big bag full of tro-
phies.
.1 Having observed his physical prowess as well as his mental and emo-
tional growth through the years, having seen him roll and tumble bumble
pell-mell to the bottom of a great many hills and always come up grinning,
I couldn't get it into my head his ankle was actually broken. Sprained, yes
but broken? I could not believe it.
Saturday night just after dark his pal Caleb helped him into the house
4nd onto the recliner in the living room. He lay back with his foot up. He
told me he'd been playing football in the park across the street, stepped in
a rut made by police cars and fire trucks, tripped, and that a boy had fallen
right on his twisted foot. He said he heard it snap and felt the pop, and he
believed it was broken. That would not compute. I couldn't get it into my
head.
I walked past him toward the kitchen for some Tylenol (my first mis-
take, his mom later informed me I should've gotten Motrin or Ibuprofen,
for the inflammation) and I stumbled over our dog, Sally, and my leg
bumped his foot. He told me later that during the entire ordeal that was the
only time he almost cried. It was an accident, of course, but that doesn't
stop the sick feeling I get remembering my clumsiness caused him such
pain.
I made him soak in a tub of hot water (another blunder, mom said; I
should have iced it). After his bath he dressed himself and I helped him
back to the recliner. He told me again he thought it was broken. My mind
still couldn't accept it.
He wanted to call his mother, who lives in Bradenton. She is a school
nurse. He talked to her a while, then handed me the phone; she quickly con-
vinced me to take him to the emergency room.
We arrived at the hospital at 8:30. Although there were only two other
people in the waiting room, it was nearly one a.m. before they finally called
us back. After the agonizing wait, things moved fast once they called us and
we were in and out in less than an hour. X-rays showed a break right below
the growth plate. A doctor gave Kyle half a pain pill, put on a temporary
cast and sent us home. I had no idea a broken bone would hurt in so many
ways.
Sunday afternoon I had to take Kyle back to Bradenton, and Monday
his mother took him to an orthopedic specialist as the emergency room man
had advised. He put on a hard cast, but still temporary. In two weeks, when
the swelling goes down, that cast will come off and the permanent one will
go on. For six weeks.
Once Barbara and I were satisfied Kyle had had the best care we could
provide and were assured he'd heal 100 percent, the financial aspect of the
ordeal began to come into focus. Barbara told me cost of the one visit to the
doctor in Bradenton was almost $1,500. The Wauchula hospital informed
me today that all the charges have not been tallied, but already the bill
stands at $1,200.
That's just the beginning.
x Mom says Kyle is zipping around on his crutches as if they were an
-extra pair of legs; that his agility at taking the steel stairs at school two at a
Time is making her a nervous wreck.
: The champ took a tumble, but when he isn't using his crutches to set
ifour-legged racing records he's using them to fend off sympathetic females,
as Dad lies flat on the mat, pinned by guilt at his inability to believe the
bone was broken, his hesitancy in going to the hospital and his oafishness
in bumping into the injured ankle.
n Compared to the crushing weight of regret for such glaring fatherly
failures, the frightening and astonishingly high pile of mounting medical
,ills,seems almost insignifioqt.

Manor Memories
By Yolanda Esquivel
Hardee Manor Healthcare Center


Working at Hardee Manor for almost three years I've seen some awe-
some handwork from several of our residents. I would like for you to meet
a special lady who loves to give of her talent.
' Meet Carmen Rivera who was born in Puerto Rico on Feb. 8, 1928. she
has been living at Hardee Manor for almost a year. She shared the follow-
ing story with me.
'My mother died when I was eight years old. I was the youngest of five
children. I was placed in an orphanage by my sister and left there. I have
not seen any of my brothers or sisters since then. When I was nine a fami-
ly adopted me. They were not kind to me. I was made to sleep on the floor
and was taken out of school. My clothes were hand-me-downs from their
own children. I loved to sing while I was growing up. I even won several
singing contests. My kids can tell you much I love to sing."
As far as moral values this is what Ms. Carmen had to say on the sub-
ject. "I know I was strict on my kids. They had their chores that they were
to do when they came home from school. I had to work sometimes two jobs
to support them. One thing I did not allow in my house was foul language.
When I said something it was to be respected. No one was allowed in the
house if I was not there. I know I was strict, but I had to be. I instilled the
importance of education on all my five children, and four out of the five
graduated from high school.
Now Ms. Carmen has three daughters Loida DeJesus from New York,
Migdalia Patterson and Velia Craycraft both of Wauchula. She also has two
sons, George DeJesus of Arizona, and Robert Galarza of New York. Ms.
Rivera enjoys talking about her 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchil-
dren.
As always I love to interview family to find out what memories they
want to share about their parents.
"Mother really didn't take a lot of time for herself because she was so
busy taking care of us," explains daughter Migdalia, "My mother had a hard
life as a child. She worked as a custodian for a school and raised all five of
us by herself. I do remember mom loved to dance and entertain people. She
also loved to sing. I remember my mom and I would sing together all the
time."
This past Christmas Ms. Rivera shared her talent by spending hours
making beautiful bracelets out of beads with each staff member's name.

THURSDAY
But on the.first day of the week,
at early dawn, they went to the
tomb, taking the spices they had
prepared and they found the
stone rolled away from the
tomb, but when they went in
they)did not find the body.
Luke 24:1-3 (RSV)

FRIDAY
But the angel spoke to the
women, Do not be afraid. I know
you are looking for Jesus who
was crucified. He is not here...
He is risen just as He said He
would.
Matthew 28:5a, 6a (PME)

SATURDAY
Now, that same day, two of the
disciples were going to a village
called Emmaus ... Jesus came
up and walked along with them
but they were kept from recog-
! nizing Him.
Luke 24:13, 17 (NIV)

SUNDAY
Then He started at the begin-
ning, with the books of Moses,
and went through all the
Prophets, pointing out every-
thing in the Scriptures that
referred to Him at that
moment, open-eyed, wide-
eyed, they recognized Him ...
and He disappeared.
Luke 24:27, 31 (ME)

MONDAY
Later that same evening, when
the disciples were together
behind locked doors, for fear of
the Jews, Jesus came and
stood among them, "Peace be
with you!" He said, and then He
showed them His hands and His
side.
John 20:19 (NEB)

TUESDAY
Jesus led His followers as far as
Bethany, and He raised His
hands and blessed them. While
He was blessing them, He was
separated from them and car-
ried to heaven.
Luke 24:50-51 (NCV)

WEDNESDAY
Jesus' disciples saw Him do
many other miracles beside the
ones told about in this book, but
these are recorded so that you
will believe that He is the
Messiah, the Son of God, and
that believing in Him you will
have eternal life.
John 20:30-31 (TLB)

celebrated their 60th wedding
anniversary last Sunday afternoon
at Lake Dale Baptist church. Family
and friends helped share their spe-
cial moments with food, fellowship,
lots of love and well wishes for
many more years to come.

This past Saturday, Donna and
Wayne Newman enjoyed a com-
bined birthday party for their grand-
children, twins Justin and Jessica,
who just turned eight years old, and
Jaidyn who just turned one year old.
They celebrated their birthdays at
Payne Creek State Park in Bowling
Green, spending time with their
family and friends.

Mark Torres Jr. celebrated his
15th birthday this last Monday with
a party. Friends and family who
attended all had a good time.

Sattirday evening I 'attended a
barbecue ad ilrty for my nephew
Keith Stark: Keith has graduated
from Fire Fighting School in Ocala.
Hosting the party were his grand-
parents, Faye and Thurman Lowe
of Zolfo Springs. Family and
friends were there to celebrate this
wonderful occasion. We are proud
of you, Keith.

She personally gave the bracelets to us in appreciation of the care we have
given her. The employees went around showing their handmade bracelets;
I still wear mine.
As I said, our residents just keep me amazed wit the awesome hand-
work and talent they possess. Our dining room tables are decorated with
handdiade crafts every season and holiday that come along.
The thought of Ms. Carmen making those bracelets for our staff
reminds us of why we chose this job in the first place. It's because the elder-
ly need us. They don't ask for much, and when they show us love as Ms.
Carmen has, it makes our job worth it.
Bottom line, we love caring for our residents! We're here for you, 773-
3231.

WHAT EQUALS 100%?
I recently received this encouragement by e-mail:
What does it mean to give 100%? or MORE than 100%? Ever wonder
about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? How could
one achieve 101%?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these
questions:
If: AB CDEF GHIJ KLMNOPQRSTU VWXYZ
Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
2122 23 24 25 26.
Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K is 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 which equals
98%
and
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E is 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =96%
But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 equaling 100%
AND, look how far the love of God will take you...
L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D is 12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that: While
hard work and knowledge will get you close, and attitude will get you there,
it's the Love of God that will put you over the top!
It is so important to realize that without the love of God, we will not be
worth anything, As 1 John 4:19 says, "we love because God first loved us!"
4ot plydo God's children experience ithe lo' e olf God.,we"ian have
loverfor God.d, The way that we,show that loye for God is through kel- ping
His commandments (1 John 2:5). Those commandments include living
right, worshipping right, and becoming right with God through His plan of
salvation that includes believing (John 3:16), repenting (2 Corinthians 7:9-
11), confessing our belief (Romans 10:9-13), and being baptized into Christ
(1 Peter 3:21).
It is a sure thing from the Word of God, as sure as a mathematical equa-
tion, that living in the love of God is the only way to be 101% sure you are
right and 101% sure of our entrance into Heaven!
I'm Telling the Truth!

TEACHING YOUR ADULT CHILDREN ABOUT MONEY
After footing the bill for decades of diapers, babysitters, back-to-school
supplies, summer camps and extracurricular activities, most parents look
forward to the time when their children become adults and take control of
their finances.
However, many parents are learning that while their grown-up kids are
living like adults, they are still acting like children when it comes to man-
aging their money.
Although experiences vary widely, many young adults look to their par-
ents for some type of financial support. Some ask for help paying off stu-
dent loans and credit card debt. Others seek support to meet monthly rent,
car payments, save for a house, health care costs or other living expenses.
Many move back home to better balance their budgets while starting their
careers or recovering from major setbacks like job loss and divorce.
In fact, the number of U.S. households with children over the age of 18
who still live at home has grown dramatically, rising by almost 70 percent
from 2000 to 2004. (Source: SRIC-BI's 2004-2005 MacroMonitor).
A 2001 study by The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard
University found that one in seven men and one in 12 women between the
ages of 25 and 34 live with their parents. A new law in New Jersey requires
employers to extend family coverage to older children, up to age 30, as
dependents, so long as they are not married and don't have children of their
own.
Given these facts, it's not surprising that a recent study of pre-retirees
and retirees discovered that the most-desired financial advice was help edu-
cating children about money. The study, the New Retirement
MindscapeSM, was conducted in 2005 with 2,000 people age 40 to 75 by
Ameriprise Financial in collaboration with Age Wage, a leading market
authority on baby boomers, and Harris Interactive, a leading market
research firm known for the Harris Poll.@
The New Retirement Mindscape research found that 52 percent of
respondents said the most important advice they could get from a financial
advisor if costs were not a concern was "help to make my children more
financially savvy." In households with financially dependent children, 61
percent rated it as their top financial advice need.
Further, the New Retirement Mindscape researchers learned that baby
boomers expressed great concern about their children's financial capabili-
ties and planning. During the study, these concerns often outstripped wor-
ries about their own retirement preparation, including receiving help with
issues related to Social Security, pensions and health care benefits. Parents
revealed that they feel daunted by the economic complexities and lack of
job security that their children now face. Moreover, many indicated that
their children would respond better to an outside, professional opinion.
What are some of the financial complexities facing today's young
adults? Many college graduates are burdened with high college loan pay-
ments and credit card debt. A recent report from the National Center for
Education Statistics revealed that 65 percent of bachelor's degree recipients
borrowed to finance their undergraduate education; the average amount bor-
rowed was $19,300 and the average monthly loan payment was $210. A
2004 Nellie Mae study found that 76 percent of undergraduates have credit
cards and the average outstanding balance was $2,169. Other key issues
include difficulty in finding well-paying jobs and establishing careers, ris-
ing housing costs and indulgent parents and grandparents.
Whether your adult children are sharing the family home with you or
asking you to co-sign the loan on their next car, consider these tips for help-
ing preserve your financial security.
Consider The Nature Of Your Child's Request
Find out why your child needs money and whether or not he or she may
seek your help again. Then, consider your own finances and assess whether
you'll be putting your current budget or future retirement savings in jeop-
ardy by supporting your child. There are no scholarships, loans or financial
aid programs for retirement;,yp, may need to'put your children second this
time, Your children h~lye dqcies to build their financial security, while you
may be just a'few years away from your retirement date.
Even if you have the resources to help your child financially, you may


want to consider the long-term consequences before agreeing to help. Well-
intentioned gifts may be too much of a good thing and could encourage life-
time financial dependency. What you gain in today's good will may lead to
future resentments that hurt your adult parent-child relationship.
Establish Boundaries And Create A Plan
Whether your child is moving home after college or needs help paying
down credit card debt, you can avoid problems later by making sure that
both parties know what is expected. Once you've agreed on a plan, consid-
er drafting a specific, written agreement. If your adult child is returning
home to live, be sure to communicate your ground rules such as paying rent
and living costs and sharing household responsibilities.
Set A Time Limit
Before giving your child a loan or allowing him or her to move back
into the house, work together to decide exactly how long the situation will
last. For example, establish a payoff date for the loan and decide on a move-
out date from your family home. If you are giving him or her a set amount
of money per month, elect a date by which he or she will be financially inde-
pendent again.
EncourAge Savings Habits
Want to motivate your adult child to start saving for retirement, contin-
uing education or a down payment for a car or house? You can reward finan-
cially responsible behavior by giving your child a match on any money that
is set aside in a long-term savings account.
Be A Role Model
Demonstrate positive money management skills by financially prepar-
ing for your own retirement and building the foundation for a secure future.
Consider working with a qualified financial advisor who can help you stay
on track financially while you provide the emotional and financial support
that your child needs.
A financial planner can help reinforce healthy financial habits with your
adult child like budgeting, planning and managing investments and debt.
Professional advice may be the boost you need to assist your child through
a tough time while encouraging positive money management and financial
independence.


The Squeezin's
By Barbara Car/ton
Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association


WHAT'S NEW IN THE CITRUS INDUSTRY EVERYTHING
The Florida citrus industry is changing daily and growers who do not
pay attention to changes could find themselves in a situation where they are
wasting time and money. Today's citrus industry requires business prowess
and knowledge.
Some of the biggest changes are coming in the form of disease and pest
management. The citrus canker eradication program has ceased. Now, pest
and disease management will be dealt with through what is called the
"Citrus Health Response Plan." While the plan is still in draft form, changes
to current procedures are many, and more changes are coming each day.
Things are changing so quickly, a delay in information could cost
growers money. For example, as the industry discusses the new plan, cur-
rent procedures of the citrus canker eradication program are being made
obsolete. Requirements to tarp off loads of fruit moving from a citrus
canker quarantine area have been dropped and it has now determined citrus
can. be harvested from a citrus canker diseased tree.
These changes during the harvest season could provide a cost saving to
growers with every load of fruit moved. Continuing to perform regulatory
required activities when they are no longer mandatory should be a business
decision by the grove owner, not done simply because of lack of knowledge
of changes made.
R6vertingiback to the Citrus Health Response Plan (CHRP), notable
items in the current draft are: ,
1) The plan is meant to address citrus health as a whole, and is. hoped


to address future pest and disease problems, going further than citrus canker
and greening.
2) Mandatory tree removal is not mentioned for the diseased trees nor
exposed trees for any disease, including citrus canker in the commercial
sector or the residential sector.
3) Much of the detail is referenced to the Compliance Agreements
which, may or may not be the same as the current compliance agreements
being used in the citrus canker eradication program.
4) The plan calls for registration of citrus production sites, through
annual compliance agreements and submission of a production practices
business plan.
5) Decontamination will be required for citrus canker, as well as other
pests and diseases.
6) Grower and state commercial grove surveys are proposed as well as
reporting of incidences of exotic pests and diseases.
7) All citrus plants for commercial groves must be certified disease-
free and obtained from a certified citrus nursery.
8) Fruit for fresh markets must be inspected within 90 days of harvest.
9) Management strategies will be provided by IFAS on an individual
basis. Although, regulatory officials will not get involved in production
strategies, the mandatory nature of this will be dependant upon language
incorporated in the compliance agreements.
10) Growers will be required to maintain a log of all training provid-
ed to employees, who will be required to complete new worker orientation
and annual refresher courses.
Much focus is placed on citrus nurseries in an effort to protect growers
from receiving diseased trees. There will be no bare root trees once the plan
goes into effect. Requirements for citrus nurseries will be significant and
will increase the cost of trees. Area growers are reporting cost increases
already, even before the plan takes affect.
Copies of the CHRP can be obtained from PRVCGA's office, or from
the internet at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/ppq/pdmp/citrushealth/ or
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/chrp/.
There certainly is no consensus in the industry as to what is the prop-
er course. However, most, not all, growers seem to be interested in making
their own production decisions, subject to their grove's situation. While that
is concerning to some, it allows free enterprise to dictate the response.
With stronger prices, most growers are willing to continue removing infect-
ed trees up to some undetermined level and continue decontamination prac-
tices to protect their groves from pest and diseases, whether citrus canker,
greening or other yet to be discovered problems.
A recent economic report on future prospects of the Florida citrus
industry, by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences paints an encouraging picture. While the report does predict con-
tinued declines in citrus acreage in Florida and in the total crop produced
by Florida growers, prices to the grower are expected to increase. In short,
those growers who are successful in maintaining their groves despite rising
costs, alternate land uses and increase incidences of pests and disease, are
expected to profit financially from the effort. A complete copy of the eco-
nomic report can be obtained from the web at www.fred.ifas.ufl.edu.
As a part of the demise of the Citrus Canker Eradication Program,
changes are also being made to tree insurance. While details of the tree
insurance policy to be offered are still being worked out, it is the govern-
ment's intent to pay growers who destroy citrus canker diseased trees and
exposed trees up to 100 feet. Payment will require a form be completed by
the Florida Department of Agriculture to verify tree destruction.
Growers can still choose to purchase the basic catastrophic (CAT) cov-
erage or increase their coverage through a buy-up policy. A CAT policy will
continue to be $100 per tree type per county. Buy-up coverage costs vary
depending upon a grower's specific needs and the coverage purchased.
Changes and options are too broad to cover in this article. We recommend
growers contact their insurance agent to discuss specific needs. May 24,
2006 is the closing date to rewrite existing policies. All other applications
will be subject to a 45-day waiting period.
As you can see much has happened in the last month. We encourage
commercial citrus growers to stay informed of these changes and partici-
pate in educational meetings when available as a method to assist in the
transitions coming for the Florida citrus industry. Our communities' well-
being depends upon the commercial citrus grower's ability to thrive.

The Herald-Advocate of...

75 YEARS AGO
Deputy Milton M. Dishong Dies
In Wreck: One of the saddest deaths
that has ever occurred in Wauchula
happened late Wednesday night
when Milton M. Dishong was killed
in an auto accident on the curve
near Big Charley some two miles
north of Gardner.
The body was discovered by a
deputy sheriff of Bradenton, who
informed Sheriff Dishong. He
arrived at the scene and recognized
the body as that of his brother. The
man's watch had stopped at 12, and
it is supposed that the accident
occurred around that time.

Mandis Buys Out Peace River
Dairy: Demos Mandis, well known
Hardee County dairyman who oper-


ates a large modern dairy in the
eastern part of the county and who
has been servicing Avon Park,
Frostproof and Sebring for several
years has entered the local field.
He has purchased Peace River
Dairy, formerly owned by J.M.
Stevens, and has moved the cows
and equipment to his dairy 14 miles
east of Wauchula. He will begin the
delivery of milk in Wauchula on
Wednesday.

last Friday night at their away


game, and then returned home
Tuesday night to lose 5 to 0 to
Venice-Nokomis High.
Pat Counts, with a double and a

ting star for the Cats at Plant City.
Johnny Terrell got a single and a
double in five trips. Dan Hunter
pitched the victory for the Wildcats,
giving up only two singles.

behind the Hardee High School
gym and the walk will begin at 9.
There will be a Mini-Walk behind
the school for kindergarten through
grade three, but all others are to par-
ticipate in the 20-mile walk.
Coordinators for the Walk-A-Thon
are Mrs. Rosalind Bass and Mrs.
Catherine Evors.

Movie To Be Filmed: Hardee and
Manatee counties will be the loca-
tion for a feature movie to be filmed
beginning the latter part of this
month. The movie, "Hole In The
Wall," was written by Charne
Porter of Orland, and Carter Lord of
Lakeland is the director and execu-
tive director.
Lord and some members of the


staff have been in Hardee County
since mid-January preparing for the
film. Two weeks ago the crew spent
three days filming as preliminary
work for the main filming. It is
expected to take 10 weeks to com-
plete.

Extension Given On Payment Of
$2 Million Bond Money: The coun-
ty's collection of about $2 million
in estreated bonds on seven accused
drug smugglers who jumped bail in
March has been put off another
month.
At the end of last month, when
the bond money was due, Circuit
Judge Oliver L. Green gave surety
agents a 30-day extension to come
up with the seven defendants or pay
the money.

10 YEARSAGO
14-Year-Old Victim of Murder
Suicide: A 14-year-old girl was
killed on the way to school last
Thursday morning by the young
man whose advances she had
rebuffed, who then turned the gun
on himself.
Lucy Chavez, an eighth grader at
Hardee Junior High School, was
shot three times and died in the
ambulance on the way to the hospi-
tal. Martin Dimas, 21, collapsed
dead at the scene of a single gun-
shot wound to his chest.

Fire Destroys House Early: It was
going to go up in flames anyway, as
a training exercise for the Bowling


Green Volunteer Fire Department,,
but not without precautions and noti
at 3 a.m. on Sunday.
The vacant wood-frame house on
West Grape Street in the city was,
scheduled for a burn, but went
down early. The blaze brought out
four engines and 12 firefighters
from the county and city. It took:
7,000 gallons of water and 40 min-'
utes to extinguish. The state fire
marshal's office is investigating the
cause of the premature blaze.

One Last Time!: Officials gather
for a final meeting in the old
Wauchula City Council chambers at
City Hall. The historic 1920s struc-
ture has been closed for several
months in the preparation for reno'
vations.
That big day, a groundbreaking of
sorts, came on Tuesday. Johnny L.
Robinson Construction, which is
heading up the project, began the
first of what will be months of work
to restore the structure to its original
grandeur.

Pros Battle Alumni 102-101;
For four 10-minute quarters, the
University of Florida Swamp
Shooters and Hardee County's own
Swamp Stompers covered the
length of Wildcat gymnasium iri
noni-stop scoring Friday night.
The Swamp Shooters seemed to
have the upper hand early on, btt
nearly let a victory get away frorh
them, clinging to their lead in the
final quarter for a 102-101 victory.'

We had 157 people at our last
dance of the season. The dance,
floor was full. The Stonebridge
Country Band was a big hit, with
our own Diane Pearson and Ted
Bertin. They did a great job of play-l
ing and singing.
Ted lives in Welland, Ontario,..
Canada, with Linda; they have beed
together for 10 years," they hav
three children and one grandchild,.
Ted is from a musical family and
has been performing since age five;
He joined his parents on stage at
that time. Ted had his own band for.
twenty-five years called Mountain
Road. Five years ago Ted went to
jam at a senior center and mei
Diane Pearson and her band. They
sang well together and recruited
two other musicians and Stone-
bridge Country Band was formed.
Ted plays a lot of different instru-
ments; banjo, steel guitar, bass gui-
tar and drums, All his playing is by'
ear, a born talent that was fashioned
by his musical family. Ted built his
own recording studio to cut his own'
CDs and now does recordings for
other artists.
Stonebridge Country Band is
well liked as we could hear from
just two of the members and they-
have a busy schedule back in
Canada. Ted and Linda own and
operate food vending trailers at var-

ious fairs, car shows, etc., during
the spring and summer months.
They have really enjoyed our park
and the friendly people here. They
plan to return next season and per-
haps buy a place. We would love to
welcome them back.

WELCOME
This is a long overdue welcome
'to our managers here in Pioneer
.Creek RV Resort. They are Jack and
Judy Green. Along with their staff,
they have really done a great job of
keeping our park looking good and
running smoothly. I hope they are
with us for a very long time.

END OF THE SEASON
As this will be our last report for
the season, we would like to say we
appreciate all the people who have
told Edna and I that they really
enjoyed what we wrote and the pic-
"tures we have sent into The Herald-
Advocate. We have enjoyed getting
the stories from everyone and meet-
ing a lot of the people that we had'
'not met before doing this. It has
:been a real learning experience, and
a lot of fun.
Money is better than poverty, if
only for financial reasons.

And after He had appeared in human form, He
abased and humbled Himself and carried His obedi-
ence to the extreme of death, even the death of the
cross! Vs. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted Him
and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is
above every name, Vs. 10 That in the name of Jesus
every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth
and under the earth. Vs. 11 And every tongue confess
and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the
glory of God the Father
-Philippians 2:8-11 (Amp)
That really says a lot, and yet people won't bow to Him now. One day
everyone will, but it may be too late to save them. He gives us opportuni-
ties now, if we will take them. Think about it, if you were to die within the
hour where will you spend eternity? Heaven or Hell? Hell is real, whether
we want to believe it or not. More is said about it in the Bible even than
heaven.
A Golden Nugget would be to repent of your sins and confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord and receive Him into your heart now. Time is running
out watch what is going on in the Middle East and you will know we
don't have much time left in this world. Surrender before it is too late!
