Turnpike Proposals Crisscross Hardee


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
; Someday a pair of turnpikes may
cross parts of Hardee County.
The Coast-to-Coast Corridor
from east to west and Heartland
Parkway Corridor from north to


south could become limited access
roads through Hardee County, if
tentative plans by Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise pan out.
Tentative plans call for a four-
lane limited access road of 130 to
150 miles west to east at a cost of


$2.2 to $2.5 billion in today's dol-
lars.
Pamela Richmond, special pro-
jects manager for planning future
toll roads, gave a presentation to
the Hardee County Commission at
its meeting last week.


Richmond said 1.8 million cus-
tomers already use the toll roads
already under the Enterprise sys-
tem, an arm of the state Department
of Transportation. The toll facility
is the largest in Florida and fourth
largest in the nation, owning 600


miles of roads and expressways,
crosstown roads and bridges all
over the state.
The turnpike enterprise is an
effort to "help meet the state's
growing transportation needs while
operating in a business-like man-
ner."
There are over two million
SunPass toll tag customers, many
already purchasing them for occa-
sional trips to airports and other
locations they don't go to frequent-
ly. There are several Sun Pass own-
ers in Hardee and Highlands coun-
ties although the highest concentra-
tion is in urban areas, said
Richmond.
Planning and construction of toll
roads is by bonding, with revenue
from the roads repaying half the
cost by the 12th year and 100 per-
cent by the 22nd year of operation,
she explained. It takes about eight
years to ramp up, she added.
There are four criteria to decide
where a new toll road will go.
There has to be a need for the road;
it must be environmentally sound;
have local support; and be econom-
ically feasible. The pair of pro-
posed roads meet these criteria,
First, the demand is explored.
Aside from SR 60 and SR 70, there
is no direct west to east road con-
necting the Manatee ports with the
east coast. Although the growth rate
in Hardee County is comparatively
low, that could be because there are




XAmnesty

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a break from it, Wauchula
officials have announced it will
have amnesty days this year.
It's the one time of the year a
Wauchula resident can put almost
anything curbside and have it
picked up for free. Amnesty days is
set for all next week, April 17-21.
Clean out your garages, storage
sheds or all-purpose rooms. Put out
anything you want to get rid of,
appliances, old furniture, tree
limbs and other yard debris, junk.
Do no put out old tires. They
won't be picked up because a poli-
cy allowing a few tires per house-
hold has been abused in the past
and it costs the city $5 apiece to
dispose of them. Residents can take
them to the landfill themselves,
said Public Works Director Ray


no good connector to the ends of
the proposed east-west corridor.
That could change as the road pro-
duced economic incentives and
volume of people within a short
distance of the county.
An environmental sensitivity
study considers the cost factors if
there is a lake (high cost) or unde-
veloped uplands (low cost) along
the proposed corridor. Wetlands,
crossing the Kissimmee River,
eagles' nests or other endangered
species, residential development
and other factors are used in creat-
ing a proposed path from point A to
point B with the least environmen-
tal impact, Richmond explained. It
would have to be well away from
the Avon Park bombing range now
being used for training. "The
Pentagon is very protective of it,"
said Richmond.
The two proposed routes are
"just a line on maps, not an align-
ment," she stressed of the tentative
route from Port Manatee to Indian
River. "The route could divert to
include the Florida Internationpl
Airport planned here and the
Sebring Airport, which asked two
years ago for the study on the east-
west connectivity.
The planned roads have DOT
District I support and additional
support could come from donation
of right-of-way, private funding, or
other state, federal or local funding.

Days' Set
McClellan.
Commissioner Jerry Conerly
objected, saying, "If we don't pick
them up, they stay there (in the
yards) and become a problem."
Police Chief Bill Beattie, whose
department handles code enforce-
ment complaints, replied, "We'll
check for that under code enforce-
ment. Tires in a yard become a
mosquito hazard to public health."
Also not allowed are hazardous
waste or batteries. These can be
taken to the county landfill during
one of the quarterly Hazardous
Waste Collection Days, when
insecticides, aerosol cans, paints
and other hazards as well as batter-
ies can be properly disposed of.
So, spend the weekend doing a
bit of spring cleaning and get all
that junk out to the curb. Clean it
out, and put it out, for free.

Of The Herald-Advocate
A 48-year-old Wauchula man has
been accused of molesting his live-
in girlfriend's 9-year-old son.
The man whose name is being
withheld by The Herald Advocate
to protect the identity of his alleged
victim was booked into the
'Hardee County Jail on a charge of
lewd molestation of a child under
12.
The crime is a life felony, pun-
ishable upon conviction by life in
prison.
Circuit Judge Robert L. Doyel
arraigned the man in Hardee
Circuit Court last week, and
ordered him held without bond as
he awaits trial. Further, the judge
appointed the Public Defender's
5i


Office to represent the man, and set
his next court date for May 30.
The man has pleaded not guilty
to the charge.
According to Maj. Claude Harris
Jr., spokesman for the Hardee


County Sheriff's Office, the boy's
mother had spent the night at a
friend's house following their out-
ing to the Strawberry Festival
together.
She arrived back home just


before 6:30 on Monday morning,
March 13, to find her son and her
boyfriend in the living room, on the
recliner. Both were naked.
Harris said the mother told

3 Men Rob Wauchula Hills Grocery Store


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Three out-of-town men who
robbed a grocery store here
Monday morning were arrested
within minutes.
Fabian Vicente Vargas-Balcero,
25, of Deland, and Jairo Martinez-
Broda and Severo Martinez-Boroa,
both of Jupiter, have been charged
with grand theft. All are currently
being held in the Hardee County
Jail without bond.
They are accused of walking into
the Wauchula Hills Supermarket at
1915 U.S. 17 N., distracting a clerk
and taking thousands of dollars
from the store office, Maj. Claude
Harris Jr., spokesman for the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office,


said.
Harris said the crime occurred at
about 9:48 a.m. He alleged the
three men walked into the super-
market, looked around and when
asked if they needed help, said they
needed Christian items for a sick
friend.
As a clerk helped one of the men
with a book, another walked to the
back of the store and a third entered
the store office. Harris alleged the
men kept the clerk occupied while
their partner cleaned out the office,
taking $55,000.
The clerk heard the office door
close, however, and saw Vargas
coming out of the office with some-
thing large concealed under his
shirt, Harris said. She confronted


the men, who ran for the front door
of the store, jumping into a green
van.
The clerk called 911, describing


Martinez-Boroa


the three men and their vehicle.
She told authorities they had head-
ed south on U.S. 17 to Florida
Avenue.


'"The system worked," Harris
said of the arrests. "As soon as we
got the call, the dispatcher put it

It was lots of smoke, but no fire and no bombs. A firefighter stands on the underground bomb shelter behind the house at 904 S.
Eighth Ave., Wauchula, checking the smoke stack as it clears while others wrap up the work from inside the home. The stack
apparently clogged sending smoke into the home. Fire Chief Mike Choate reported that the call came in shortly before 5:30
Sunday evening. Staff on the two engines, rescue truck and supervisor's vehicle found thick smoke and used 150 gallons of water
from a nearby hydrant to extinguish the fire in the bomb shelter. The house was spared. Cause of the fire remains under investi-
gation. Fire-Rescue was able to clear the scene in two hours.

America's immigration policy is extremely important, reports Kevin
Morgan in the current issue of Florida Agriculture magazine published by
Florida Farm Bureau. He is director of the Farm Bureau's Agricultural
Policy Division.
The U.S. Senate has filed several bills for an updated immigration pol-
icy, so a new law could occur this year.
"Immigration policy should address national security, border control
and a workable guest worker program that will enable businesses to access
a legal workforce. Farmers need a reliable and dependable workforce, just
like any other business. Florida Farm Bureau and the farmers we represent
strongly support measures to improve and strengthen the security of our
nation" wrote Morgan.

The Range Cattle Research and Education Center has been keeping
track of rainfall and temperature since 1942.
The 64-year average rainfall at the Ona station is 54.27 inches. Rainfall
there in 2005 was 61.83 inches.
Here is the average rainfall by month: January, 2.19 inches; February,
2.62; March 3.2; April, 2.53; May, 3.8; June, 8.73; July 8.48; August, 8.21;
September, 7.42; October, 3.12; November, 1.97; and December, 2.0.
- The Fertilizer Institute estimates U.S. fertilizer nutrient use fell 5sper-
cent in 2005, to 22.2 million nutrient tons, from 2004. The recifdt was 23.7
million tons in 1981.
Average fertilizer prices in early 2006 were 9 percent higher than the
1990-92 levels. The USDA projects net farm income in 2006 to be $56.2
billion. The record was $82.5 billion in 2004.
Plantings of corn are expected to slightly decline in 2006, with increas-
es for cotton, soybeans and wheat. Estimated U.S. plantings in 2006 are
corn, 80.5 million acres; cotton, 14.4 million acres; soybeans, 74 million
acres; and wheat, 58 million acres.

Progress Energy Florida on March 31 filed a plan to improve air qual-
ity by reducing power plant emissions at its Anclote and Crystal River
plants. This will meet federal environmental rules to reduce nitrogen oxide,
sulfur dioxide and mercury emissions.
The first compliance dates fall in 2009. Progress Energy Florida
expects to invest about $736 million in capital costs by the end of 2009 to
meet these new guidelines.
The changes will involve switching to low-sulfur oil and natural gas,
new scrubbers, and more efficient burners. .
Progress Energy provides electricity and related services to over 1.5
million customers in Florida, including Bowling Green.

Dorsey, who was serving process
papers in the area, heard the infor-
mation and met the suspect vehicle
on Florida Avenue headed south.
* "He turned around .to. catch
them" the major went on to
describe, "and they tried evasive
maneuvers and went down several
side streets." Harris said they were
apprehended in the area of Indiana
Avenue and Georgia Street.
"It all happened within minutes,"
he said.
Harris lauded the dispatcher and
Dorsey for a "great job." He also
commended backup officers for
taking the men into custody with-
out incident.
Roughly $49,000 was recovered,
he said.
The men have been charged with
grand theft rather than robbery
because no force was used in the
incident, he added.

children run into his arms when
his hands are empty.

Nutrition Notes

THE NEW WHOLE-GRAIN PRODUCTS
With the appearance of new guidelines that put heavy emphasis on eat-
ing whole grains every day, a variety of new products is appearing that can
make this goal more reachable. While these products are definitely an
improvement over refined grains, we should be careful about what these
products can and cannot do.
Studies show that people who eat at least three servings of whole
grains a day have a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer and
seem to maintain a healthy weight more easily. Since, refined grains, such
as white flour, have their innermost and outermost layers (their germ and
bran) removed, whole grains are higher in fiber and contain 10 times the
amount of vitamin E; four times the potassium, magnesium and zinc; three
times the vitamin B-6; and twice the selenium. Because most adults eat
large portions, the three-serving goal is easy to meet. Two slices of whole-
wheat bread or one cup of brown rice or whole-grain pasta all count as two
servings,.
The new products now on the market make the goal of three whole-
grain servings a day even easier. For years, the American Institute for
Cancer Research (AICR) has been suggesting that whole-wheat and white
flours be mixed when baking. Commercial bakeries have finally caught on.
You can choose from commercial breads, pastas and cereals with various
combinations of whole and refined flours. Three servings of these foods
don't supply-the same nutritional yalue-'asfthree servings ofviwhola grains,
-'but they are an improvement over refined prodiiuts:.Theybmay alsi help
your taste buds learn to enjoy 100 percent whole grains. :,-n hI
Other new products use a completely different kind of whole wheat.
Unlike the vast majority of whole-wheat flour produced in the U.S., which
comes from red wheat, these new products are made with flour from white
wheat. This flour is lighter in color than regular whole-wheat flour. It has a
slightly sweeter taste because its bran layer contains fewer tannins and phe-
nolic acids. White whole wheat has the same higher levels of fiber, vitamins
and minerals as red whole wheat.
Products made withrthis white whole-wheat flour may be 100 percent
whole grain even though they resemble refined versions in color. The tex-
ture is also similar because the primary producer of White whole-wheat
flour grinds it to an extra-fine consistency .
A note of caution about white whole wheat appeared, however, at the
most recent AICR International Research Conference on Food, Nutrition
and Cancer. Studies at the University of Minnesota have shown that ani-
mals eating red wheat develop substantially fewer of the changes in cells
lining the colon that precede colon cancer than animals consuming white
wheat. One of the researchers mentioned that there is little data yet on the


TURNPIKE
Continued From 1A


phytochemical content of white whole wheat. It's possible that the lower
levels of tannins and phenolic acids, which give white wheat its sweeter fla-
vor, reduce its ability to protect against cancer. It's also possible that the
fine grinding of whole-wheat flours diminishes its benefits for bowel func-
tion and lessening constipation, since fiber's form can affect how it works.
Although the new products with whole and refined grains offer a nutri-
tional step up from refined grains, you should aim to eat at least three serv-
ings of true whole grains each day. You can select from whole wheat, brown
rice, rolled oats, popcorn, buckwheat and wild rice, among others. It
remains to be seen, however, whether white whole wheat is the nutritional
equal of traditional whole wheat.

MAKE YOUR COMFORT FOOD HEALTHY
Many people think that real comfort foods must be high-fat, high-calo-
rie and bad for your health. A new study, however, which adds to other
research from the last few years, suggests that a food becomes a comfort
food for physical and psychological reasons. You can take steps to improve
the healthfulness of a favorite food or choose an alternative to warm your
heart.
The term comfort food refers to specific foods people eat for psycho-
logical comfort. They often have moist, creamy textures and other fatty
characteristics. Yet research now suggests that calling a food a comfort food
has less to do with its qualities than with its ability to trigger happy memo-
ries and feelings. Consequently, the foods that people choose as comfort
foods vary depending on their age, cultural background and gender.
Studies show that men are most apt to want comfort foods as part of a
celebration or a reward. They often like warm, hearty foods, like soups,
casseroles, ;steak, pizza, or-pasta. These foods tend to be main-dish entries
their mothers prepared for them.: .
Women, in contrast, often crave comfort foods when they are unhap-
py. Their choices are less likely to require cooking. Ice cream (which is, a
top choice for men, too, in some studies), chocolate and cookies are fre-
quent favorites. More often than men, women express guilt over their com-
fort food choices.
Some research suggests that our decision to eat comfort foods has a
physical basis. Chronic stress can set off a cascade of hormones. One result
is that our pleasure in eating foods high in fat or sugar increases. Because
those excess calories tend to be deposited around the waist, another chain
of hormonal events occurs that turns off the original chain of stress hor-
mones. Although rats exposed to chronic stress usually lose weight, the
same hormonal changes often lead people to eat so much more they gain
weight. However, people can also eat less under stress and lose weight.
Since many main-dish comfort foods like chili come from.a time when
we knew less about food's relation to health and people were more active,
they can cause a weight problem today, unless you alter them. For example,
add or increase the amount of vegetables in soups, stews, casseroles and
chilies you love. Or try replacing some of the meat in these dishes with
beans. You can reduce the fat in sauces and soups and retain a thick, ereainy
texture by using evaporated nonfat milk or pur6ed vegetables like potatoes
instead of heavy cream. Although main dishes like pizza can be' made
healthier by, adding vegetables, a better addition is a green salad or veg-
etable side dish to avoid overeating your comfort food.
Cookies and other bakery items can be made more healthful by reduc-
ing the amounts of fat and sugar, but studies suggest that womeliwho crave
these comfort foods are unlikely to prepare healthier versions. A'more prac-
tical plan is to focus on portion control. For example, try eating small
wrapped pieces of chocolate, or place a few cookies on a plate instead of
holding the entire package.
Some researchers contend that after about four bites of a food your
brain reaches its maximum ability to savor and remember it. Since Tour
bites may be enough to satisfy your craving, don't eat your comfort food
while doing something that distracts you from fully savoring it. By turning
to another activity after eating a small amount, you may get the comfort you
want without the guilt, extra calories, or fat.
Besides explaining why we want comfort foods, research on stress hor-
mones suggests that there are alternative ways to deal with stress. Exercise,
yoga, meditation and even a relaxing bath can all bring stress relief to the
brain. It makes more sense to choose one of these healthier alternatives
instead of one that can hurt our physical health.


COURTESY MAP
Long-range plans call for two toll roads passing through Hardee
County, one from Port Manatee to Indian River and one from
Fort Myers to the Polk Parkway at Winter Haven.


Richmond said a traffic forecast
and financial feasibility study were
being done and she would return to
the commission with 'an update
then.
The north-south Heartland Cor-
ridor would connect the Fort Myers
area to the Polk Parkway and
Western Beltway, but they are still
working on the sensitivity analysis
on it, she said.
Commission Chairman Nick
Timmerman asked if any informa-
tion was available on the economic
impact of these roads. Richmond
said other than knowing that 1,216
more people come to Florida each
day than leave it, she had no such


information because economic
impact is not a factor they consider.
Commissioner Bobby Ray Smith
said the study University of South
Florida professor Lance DeHaven-
Smith did showed there could be an
increase of 58,000 jobs in the
Heartland by 2020. The east-west
and north-south corridors would
attract economic development, the
study said.
In response to a question from
the audience, Richmond said the
number of toll road exchanges in
the county could depend on where
development is expected and if
developers were willing to pay for
them.

Letter To The Editor
Fire-Rescue Vehicles Have
First Priority On Roads


Dear Editor,
One morning I was leaving for
work, and what I saw I could not
believe. I heard sirens and noticed
an ambulance going by my house. I
heard more sirens, and by that time
I was at the end of my driveway.
I stopped and saw the fire-rescue
vehicle going by my house. I decid-
,ed to. watch him go on down the
road. What I saw was unbelievable.
The first vehicle pulled over and
stops, as you should. That put the
fire-rescue behind a semi which'
would not jiull over. Not only
would he not pull over, but also the
vehicles that were coming toward
the fire-rescue would not pull over
either. This caused the fire-rescue
to be stuck behind the truck.
People, remember that these res-
cue people are going to someone
who needs them desperately. One


day it could be-one of your loved
ones or maybe your house is on
fire.
It could mean the difference
between life and death. Also, these
guys need your help by getting out
of the way so they can safely get to
where they are going. This is by no
means the only time I have wit-
nessed this. I see it all to often.

Family Residential) for the devel-
opment of up to 12 units per acre of
one and two-story multi-family
townhomes/condos.
Don Chancey did not vote due to
a conflict of interest on the matter.
The property is owned by Noey
Flores, Steven Carpenter, Junior
Archer and Juan DelaTorre and is
located on or about Old Bradenton
Road north of Lost Acres Drive.
Chancy said 40 acres are .devel-
opmental and are keyed to the new
K-8 school. The units will cost in
the $100,000-plus to the $150,000
range. The developer will run
sewer and water lines seven-tenths
of a mile.
Deputy superintendent of
schools Rocky Kitchens said the
property is within two miles of the
new school and that he supports the
project but pointed to the need for
sidewalks so children can walk to
school. Chancey said there is a
potential of 480 dwelling units. He
said a final site development plan
should address sidewalks on the
property.

special use permit for Ernesto and
Jeannie Aguilar for the temporary

Look On The Bright Side
By David Kelly


I know that it is Easter, but I wanted to share with you a Christmas
message where the Good News was first shared.
The Shepherds And The Angels
'And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night. 'And an angel of the Lord appeared to
them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled '
with fear. "And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you .;
good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. "For unto you is
born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. C
"2And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swad-
dling cloths and lying in a manger." "And suddenly there was with the |
angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ""'Glory to
God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is |
pleased!"
"When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds
said to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has
happened, which the Lord has made known to us." '"And they went with
haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. "And
when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them con-
cerning this child.
"And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. "But
Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 2"And the
shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and
seen, as it had been told them. "2And at the end of eight days, when he was
circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he ;'
was conceived in the womb.

Verses 8-14 show us how the birth of Christ is calling us home. We are
not talking about Eustis or Wauchula or Bowling Green or Zolfo Springs or
'wherever you earthly home might be. We are talking about Heaven.
I'm not talking about a Barbara Walters, Buddhist, Hindu or Islamic
heaven. I'm talking about a specific place. Heaven is a place where those
who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will go when they die a
physical death. When they believe Jesus: was born of a virgin, being fully
man and fully God; lived on this earth; was blameless and yet crucified
(making propitiation for our sins); was dead and buried and on the third day
arose from the dead (defeating death and sin); and ascended into Heaven to
sit at the right hand of the Father, Almighty God. This place of Holiness, in
the presence of God praising and glorifying Him forever, is the home I'm
talking about.
Jesus Christ's birth is a reminder that He is calling us home, each year,
each week, each day, each encounter with one another.
From the Greek, the verse 10 translation would be: He, she, it existed,
a great joy; or He the great joy; He is the good news. "He" being Jesus
Christ. In other words, supply "Jesus Christ" in verse 10 for "a great joy."
Next let's look at the history of our being called. The shepherds were
being called to see Christ but it didn't start there. It started in Genesis 1:27.
Look also at Gen 3:9,15 and 9:8-17; Isaiah 49:1, chapter 51 and 52:3-6;
Ezekiel 20:33-34,42; Luke 6:8 and 18:15-17; and John 15:16-17.
Isaiah 54:5-8 says, "For your maker is your husband, the Lord of
hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of
the whole earth he is called. For the Lord has called you like a wife desert-
ed and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off,.says your
God. For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will
gather you. In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but
with everlasting love I will have compassion on you."
So you can see that God does want a relationship with you. He creat-
ed you, redeemed you and even pursues you.
You may be saying, "Why do I care?"
You should care because death is inevitable, unavoidable, we all must
die. You are going to die, I am going to die. Then what?
Read Luke 6:46-49: "Why do you call me Lord, Lord. and not do-what
I tell you? Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them,
I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug.
deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the'
stream broke against the house and could not shake it, because it had been
well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who
built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke
against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great."
One day that stream will break against us, the stream of death. We wil
die, but if we have built our life on Christ, our house will not be shaken, but
if we haven't built our house on the Rock, the ruin of that house will be
great!
Let's look at how the shepherds responded to their calling. Not only
were they called, but they went where they were called. Why? Because they
wanted to see this thing that had happened that the Lord had made know
to them.
Where did they go? To Bethlehem (city of David). When did they go.
Right away. How did they go? Together, looking for a baby wrapped i
swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.
Next week, Part 2. .. .

Of The Herald-Advocate
"We're still moving forward.
Spirits are high and it looks better
and better,"
John Reev president of Van Fleet
International Airport Development
LLC, told the Hardee County
Commission that interest in the
local cargo airport is growing.
He shared copies of a recent
issue of Future Airports magazine
describing the Florida International
Airport's possibilities to increase
capacity to the Florida airport sys-
tem, allowing Miami, Tampa and
Orlando airports to expand their
passenger service.
It cited instances where perish-
able commodities such as flowers
and cattle are trucked to and from
Miami airport to non-Florida desti-
nations and could more efficiently
be handled in a central Florida
location.
Reed presented Fred Fox, man-
aging director of Daedalus, an avi-
ation strategies company. Fox, who
is presently working out of the
Boston area, happened to come to
Wauchula on Wednesday and had
some time to update the commis-
sion on Thursday .on the airport
planning. Fox is working with the
Washington Group International
and FRAPORT, on developing air-
ports around the world- and has
been retained by Van Fleet to repre-
sent its interests.
Fox said he had just returned
from ,Korea and has been to many
other countries exploring possibili-
ties. "Frankly, FRAPORT (the
largest cargo airport group in the
world) doesn't accept any plans
destined to fail. This airport is
attracting a lot of attention to the

point ot, :. management people are
following the example.
"When I started one and a half
years ago, it was hard to see the
viability of this airport. Now 22 air-
ports in the U. S. are filing updates
to add a component for the perish-
able goods transfer process, such as
produce, cut flowers and cattle.
One in Minnesota wants to, but has
no local product to fill the plane on
the return trip, making it not cost
effective."
Ford said the planned Central
Florida airport near Fort Green
would have the advantage because
the cattle are already here and
would not need to be transported
such long distances to an airport.
He said an average of eight cargo
ships daily arrive in the Miami port
daily with cut fresh flowers. The
seven-step labor intensive process
to ship them all over the country
leads to a lot of loss. Instead, they
could be flown the extra 150 miles
to the airport in Hardee County and
distributed nationally a lot easier,
avoiding the congestion of 1-95 and
tourism traffic.
"So, the project here is alive and
doing well. It's attracting interest as
far away as London. It has to stand
on its own merits. Economic devel-
opment is not one of the goals of
the Florida Department; of Trans-
portation-Aviation division (F-

stration (FAA) goals, but the plan
for them looks very encouraging,"
said Fox.
"We have to demonstrate the
economic viability of this project,
that it adds to the Florida trans-
portation system capacity, that it's a
stand alone project," concluded
Ford.
Reed said the economic need and
purpose analysis is almost com-

Ford reiterated. "FRAPORT, the

Reed said later that .he hopes to

Tennis Teams Go District


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee tennis teams finish
up this week and head to district
playoffs next week.
The boys hosted Avon Park or
Monday and the girls greet the
Lady Red Devils today (Thursday).
The Class 2A-District 9 tourna-
ment is at Sebring this year. Other
teams in the district are Sarasota
Booker, Braden River, DeSoto,
Lake Placid, Palmetto and Avon
Park.
Hardee boys lost both matches
last week by 4-3 scores, while the
girls lost 6-1 at Palmetto and 7-0 at
Sebring.
Against Palmetto, Hardee boys
battled, carrying two matches into
the extra set to decide the winner.
At number one Josh Ready downed
Casey Caldwell 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, At
number two singles Walter
"Boomer" Olliff handled Adam
Danziger 6-3, 6-3.
Hardee lost the next three match-
es by points closer than the score
would indicate. Robbie Jones went
down 6-1, 6-4 to Alan Turnquist.

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


WHAT DO YOU MAKE?
The following story comes from John Shay Sr.:
A group of dinner guests were sitting around a table discussing life. A
CEO decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a
kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to
become a teacher?" He reminded the other dinner guests what they say
about teachers: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."
To stress his point, he said to another guest, "You're a teacher, Susan.
Be honest. What do you make?"
Susan, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness, replied: "You
want to know what I make? I make kids work harder than they ever thought
they could. I make a C+ student feel like the winner of the Congressional
Medal of Honor. I make kids sit through 40 minutes of study hall in absolute
silence.
"You want to know what I make? I make kids wonder. I make them crit-
icize. I make them apologize and mean it. I make them write. I make them
read, read, read. I make them show all their work in math and perfect their
final drafts in English. I make them understand that, if you have the brains
and follow your heart, you can go and do anything. And I teach them if
someone ever tries to judge you by what you make, you must pay no atten-
tion because they just didn't learn."
Susan paused and then continued. "You want to know what I make? I
make a difference. What do you make?"
That story makes me want to stand up and give a big round of applause.
I'll be honest. It sickens me how we treat our teachers in America today.
They are the ones who truly make a difference and we do not give them the
respect, nor the pay, that they deserve. They are not even paid as much as
babysitters. The going rate for babysitters in America is about $4 an hour
per child being watched. So let's figure this out:
If a teacher, teaching in the richest country in the world, has 20 kids in
her class (and many times it is more than that), then she should be receiving
about $80 an hour!
Let's be stingy and only pay them for when they are face-to-face with
our children (and nothing for the hours of planning and grading they put into
it), about five hours a day. Multiply that by 180 days a year. A babysitter,
doing a teacher's job, should expect to make $72,000 a year! And that is just
if they play with our kids, not teach, train and educate them. Unfortunately,
most school boards and state governments decide that it should be more like
$29,000 a year.
Like the Bible says, "The laborer is' worthy of his reward" (1 Timothy
5:17). This passage is referring to elders but I think that the principle is the
same wherever it is applied. Our teachers are worthy of much more!
Teachers today play the role of feeder, mother, teacher, friend and comforter.
They are the ones who hold our children's lives every day.
We need to give our laborers a better reward. It is the duty of every
Bible-believing human being to give our teachers more than we do. Our kids
are worth the best! I'm Telling the Truth!

Step Outdoors
With Michael Kelly


Well, another week has come and gone and still no turkey.
Friday afternoon I headed back to the Avon Park Air Force Range for
another crack at the gobblers that have been eluding me all season. After
setting up camp my dad and I headed into the woods in hopes of roosting a
bird.
About seven o'clock we were walking along the edge of a fresh burn,
and I spotted two turkeys about 300 yards away. We stopped and got out a
pair of binoculars so we could tell what they were. I then saw a third turkey
move out into the opening, and this one was in full strut. He gobbled once
and strutted around for a few minutes. Then, all of the sudden he came out
of strut and in an alert position. Then he bolted for cover. I don't know how,
but he must have seen us watching him from that far away.
After that miscue .we split up and sat down near some large oak trees
where the turkeys like to roost. As darkness approached four hens fed past
me and flew up for the night, but there was no sign of the gobbler I had seen
earlier.
I met back up with dad, and we started to do some owl hooting in hopes
of getting one to gobble and give away its position. We started walking
through the trees continuing to look and listen in the fading light. Then we
heard some loud wingbeats overhead and looked up to see a turkey flying
away from us.
The next morning we went in the area of where the turkey flew the
night before. We sat up about 100 yards apart, hoping that the bird would
come by one of us. Shortly after daylight I heard two turkeys fly down
behind me.
After about an hour with no luck, we needed to move. I started walk-
ing towards my dad's blind so we could try a new spot. Whenever I got
about 70 yards away from him a turkey flew out of a tree practically right
over my dad.
We think it was the same bird that we had scared off the night before.
The turkey must have seen us walk in, and then watched my dad build a
blind and sit down 30 yards away. It never made a sound, and my dad had
no idea it was there.
After scaring that turkey, we split up and headed off to new areas. I
headed back to the burn that I had seen the turkeys in the evening before.
It wasn't long before I saw two turkeys feeding off in the distance. I picked
up rhy call and yelped at them a few times. They changed direction and
headed straight for me. I was disappointed whenever I could tell they were
two lone hens. They came up to within about 15 yards away before they
turned around and fed off. I didn't see anything the rest of the day.
The next morning I was back in the same area. After not having any
luck early in the morning I moved to a new spot. I was slipping along the
edge of a big meadow in hopes of spotting a gobbler out in it. I saw one all
right but not the way I had hoped. As I rounded the edge of some myrtle
bushes there was a gobbler standing in the wide open. I don't know how I
didn't see him earlier. We saw each other at the exact same time and were
both equally as surprised.
He bolted for cover, and I was helpless because the turkey was about
20 yards out of shotgun range. I watched as he vanished into the' bushes.
For a moment I thought about chasing after it to see if I could catch up close
enough to it for a shot. I decided not to scare it even worse in hopes I could
see it again later in the morning. I went on the rest off the morning without
seeing another turkey. If I had it to do over again I think we would have had
a footrace to see 'who was faster.
So here I sit with 12 days left in the season. It has definitely not gone
the way I had planned, but I still have hope. I won't give up until the last
day. Hopefully next week I will be able to write about success instead of
close calls and near misses.

The Hardee County Board of County Commissioners and the Hardee
Chamber of Commerce will be putting on "Nature Fest 2006" at the grand


April 13, 2006, The Herald-Advocate 9A

opening of the new Hardee Lakes Park, located off Ollie Roberts Road in
Fort Green, on May the 6th. Included will be the 2006 Hardee Lakes
Fishing Tournament. There will be a bass tournament for adults and a bank
fishing tournament for juniors.
The bass tournament will have a $45 per boat entry fee. All of the reg-
istration money along with additional prize money and prizes will be given
out to the winners and through drawings.
. The tournament will be catch and release only. The winners will be
decided by the total weight, with a maximum of two fish per boat. There
will also be a $10 prize for the biggest bass caught in each lake.
Since there are four lakes in the park, boaters will be assigned to a lake
by a drawing held at the tournament meeting. To make it more fair, prizes
will be given for each individual lake. Since lakes one and two are the
largest, they will pay for first, second and third place. Lakes three and four
are smaller so they will have fewer boats on them. These lakes will pay for
first and second place.
The schedule for the morning will begin at 5:30 with registration. A
tournament meeting follows where lake assignments will be given out. The
fishing starts at 6:30 and will last until the weigh-in at 1:15 p.m. At 2
o'clock the results will be announced and the prizes given out.
The bank fishing tournament for the junior division is being put on by
the Florida Council on Crime and Delinquency. Prizes will be given out for
the biggest fish caught from the bank, as well as many door prizes. The bait
will be provided for any youngster who wants to fish. To sign up your chil-
dren call Walter Williamson at 773-0766.
World renowned angler Bill Dance will be there all day putting on a
fishing expo and assisting in handing out all the prizes. I have watched his
fishing show for many years and look forward to meeting him.
There will be a limited number of boats allowed in the tournament so
be sure to sign up early. Look for the registration form also in the paper this
week. For additional information, tournament registration or to be a spon-
sor, contact Erica Scheipsmeier at 375-4450.

If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up
somewhere else.

it will be open for four days, from

Commissioner Minor Bryant. "The
park was developed by reclamation


after mining, along with gas
pipeline dollars and state recreation
grants.
Bryant met Friday with Diana
Youmans, public relations manager
for Mosaic Inc. (formerly IMC and
Cargill Mining, which merged last
year), and Sandy Larrison of the
Hardee County Chamber of
Commerce, which has been meet-
ing weekly to plan this major event;
Youmans, who has worked in
mining for 17 years and been a
member of the county park board
for most of the time, was excited.
"This is the first reclamation pro-
ject of my career. It's the reality of
what reclamation can do, this won-
derful asset for public recreation.
Credit goes to the county commis-
sion for insisting on lakes in the
reclamation plans.

house at one time or another. Louise
married William Troy Cooper in
1935 and moved to Tampa to live
for 35 years.
Louise commented that this*
house on Bryan has been a gather-
ing place for the family. Next
Tuesday's date was a scheduled get
together of 12 relatives. The annual
Shirley Reunion is celebrated in the
fall at this house, where 75-100
family members will gather. Louise
will celebrate her birthday on Nov.
5, when another gathering will take
place all day as relatives sit and talk
late into the night on her screened
porch with comfortable chairs.
This house burned in the attic in
1938. There were no fire trucks; the
firemen had to use-a pump to put
out the fire, which was confined in
the attic. That date was March 15
because Louise mentioned that it
was so cold outside that night that
there were icicles from the roof the
next morning from the water drip-
ping that the firemen had pumped
into the attic!
Louise also added that the family
gathers there for Easter and cele-
brates with a family Easter Egg
Hunt. All of the cousins would
search for colored eggs across the
street, which was once a vacant lot
with lots of trees and bushes. There
is a house built there now.
One of Louise's fondest memo-
ries of the house was leaving for
Bowling Green First Baptist
Church on Mother's Day when her
mother wore a beautiful flower cor-
sage.
Louise does all of the gardening
outside of this historic house. She
says that she thoroughly enjoys it
and that it gives her a chance to talk
to neighbors when they are strolling
by.
A heartfelt thank you to Mrs.
Louise Shirley-Cooper for sharing.
her thoughts and history of her
wonderful home!

home game last Wednesday.
The young Cats finish their sea-
son this week. Tuesday, they greet-
ed the DeSoto junior Bulldogs and
the game tomorrow (Friday) is
home against the Palmetto junior
Tigers.
Last week's win put the junior
Cats in good position to end the
season with at least a .500 record.
The victory over the junior Pirates
put the Cats at 7-5 for the season.
In last week's game, sophomore
Carl Basey opened the game and
pitched four strong innings. He
retired the junior Pirates in the top
of the first on a pair of strikeouts
and a fly to center field.
Hardee was also limited to three
batters in the home half of the first
as a Ben Krause walk went for
naught when a liner to first caught
him a bit off base. A Dan Timmons
hit up the middle also produced no


runs as it came just before the final
out.
It was another one, two, three in
the top of the second, Pirates going
down on a fly-ball, strikeout and
ground-out. Hardee got Josh Rod-
gers aboard but he was out going to
second when Ryan Abbott singled
down the right field line.
Braden River got on the board
first, plating a pair of batters in the
top of the third on a four singles
and an error.
Hardee bounded back in the
home half of the third. With one
away, Krause singled to left field. A
Timmons hit moved Krause along
and a walk loaded the bases. A
Jeremy Hollenbeck double to left
field brought the first two-some
home. A Rodgers single up the mid-
dle kept it going and Ryan Abbott
followed suit. By the time nine bat-
ters had gone to the plate, five had
scored and Hardee had a 5-2 lead.
The Pirates were up and down in
a hurry in the top of the fourth.
Basey struck out the first, the next
flied out and the third ground out.


Hardee plated one run in the bot-
tom of the fourth. Krause, Will
Abbott and Timmons hit consecu-
tive singles, with Krause the only
one to get all the way'home. It was
6-2.
Kalebt Saunders went to the
mound in the top of the fifth. The
Pirates greeted him rudely, putting
together singles and doubles to nar-
row the Hardee lead to 6-5.
In the home half of the fifth,
Hardee added an insurance run.
Ryan Abbott drew a walk, as did


Saunders. Singles by Tony Mar-
tinez and Krause and a walk by
Will Abbott kept junior Cats going
around the bases, with Ryan Abbott
coming home. It was 7-5.
The insurance run paid off as the
junior Pirates tried to rally in the
top of the sixth inning, the final
inning on the time limit. A walk,
double and single brought the first
batter to home plate, before
Saunders struck out the final batter,
leaving Hardee with the 7-6 victo-,
ry.

Rise & Shine

THE INFLUENCE OF DADS
Do you dads out there realize how much of an influence you have on
;your little sons? Your boys live within the boundaries of your family.
Almost never do they travel abroad to observe how other children live.
'Sure, they watch shows on TV but even the smallest spectator learns that
this isn't real life.
Can he stay up an hour longer, buy a candy bar, decide to finish his
spinach or not? Such things are determined by you. No wonder he thinks
{you know everything.
i4 He's learning how to view and treat women by the way you treat your
,wife and his mother. He's learning how to handle disagreement and conflict
by studying how you handle it. He's learning about honesty and integrity as
"he. watches you demonstrate it.
Most of all, he is learning about God by the way you speak of the
Almighty and whether or not you play a part in the work of your local
church.
Here's a few verses by poet Edgar Guest:
'There's a wide-eyed little fellow
Who believes you are always right.
And his ears are always open
As he watches day and night.
Your are setting an example
Every day in what you do,
For the little boy who's waiting'
To grow up just like you."
Does our example as fathers really make a great difference? Several
years ago the Christian Life and Faith magazine presented some unusual
(facts about two families. In 1677 an immoral man married a woman with a
ibad reputation. Nineteen hundred descendants came from this union. Of
'these, 771 were criminals, 250 were arrested for various offenses and 39
were convicted of murder. These people spent a combined total of 1,300
years behind bars and cost the state nearly $3 million.
The second family included Jonathan Edwards, the outstanding New
England preacher. Of the 1,344 descendants, many were college presidents
and professors. One hundred eighty-six became ministers of the gospel.
Eighty-six were state senators, three were Congressmen, 30 were judges
and one became Vice-President of the United States.
I don't think people are chiefly influenced by political events, by what
part of the country they grew up in or how much money they have in the
bank. I think it's the influence of the family father.
Let's be grateful if we have a dad who loves and serves the Lord. Let's
'pray for him and encourage him all we'can.. He's a rare breed and is uni-
versally needed. Especially by his boys.


I Until the 1700s, ballerinas wore long, heavy. skirts, tight corsets.
and heeled slippers--all of which limited their ability to jump and per-
form other energetic movements.

Lady Cats In Final Week


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Lady Wildcats finish
up their season at home tonight
(Thursday).
The varsity-only Senior Night
game will be at 5:30 against Fort
Meade.
The Lady Cats had a trio of
games last week and, although
coming out on the short end, "are
playing much improved ball," said-
Coach Donnie Carver.
Class 4A District 10 softball
playoffs are next week in Palmetto.
Seedings and times of play have
not yet been announced. Other
teams in the district are DeSoto,
Sebring, Avon Park, Braden River,
Sarasota Booker and the host
school Palmetto.
Last week began with a Tuesday
trip to play powerful All Saints
Academy with its stellar pitcher
Lindsey McClellan who had 177
strikeouts this season. Although 13
Lady Cats also became strikeout
victims, the Hardee girls showed a
difference in the 8-2 loss from the
16-0 shutout to All Saints earlier in
the season.
Hardee limited All Saints to 10
hits, with Natalie Maynard and
McClellan each getting three of
them. For Hardee, a pair of scores
came in the fifth inning. Emily
Adams singled to right and Chelsea


Owens followed that with a double
to left'field. Amber Steedley plated
her teammates with a solid hit to
right field.
Hardee had a bad outing at Avon
Park last. Thursday, losingll-2 to
pitcher Ashton Shirey and compa-
ny. Hardee's only scores came in
th'e fourth inning. Krystin Robert-
son was safe on an error and stole
second. An error on a Steedley hit
allowed Rbbettson to" cdme"honi -
Hits by Jamie ',Buckley ,,apd
Danielle Hines moved Steedle to"'
home plate. '
The Lady Cats came home on
Friday to face Palmetto, which plat-
ed three runs in the top of the first.
With two away, Jessie Koopz and
Cassey Lewis trotted home on the
wings of a Mallory Underwood
home run over the center field
fence.
Hardee answered with one run in
the home half of the first inning.
Adams opened with a single to
right field, went to second on a wild
pitch and third on a bunt sacrifice
by Robertson. An Owens sacrifice
brought Adams home.
A Brittany Cummings double
brought a pair of teammates home
for Palmetto in the top of the sec-
ond. The Lady Tigers chipped
away at Hardee, finding the holes
and hitting solid hits. There were
k


three runs in the third and two more
in the fourth on a Lewis homer that
put Palmetto up by 10 runs, and
looking for a mercy rule victory.
Hardee would not give in and
scored twice in the home half of the
fourth. With one away, Owens
drew a walk and a Steedley bunt
took a high hop and she beat it out.
Buckley sliced a shot past the sec-
ond sacker and Owens raced home.
Sieedley ended up on third -and
Buckley went to second on the


/, I


overthrow.
A Hines sacrifice brought
Steedley home before the third out.
It was 11-3.
In the top of the fifth, Hardee
kept Palmetto from scoring, leav-
ing a pairof runners stranded. Lady
Cat Kaila Nix walked andwas left
on base.
Palmetto bounded back in the top
of the sixth, sending 10 batters to
the plate and bringing six of them
home to take a commanding 17-3
advantage. The deflated Lady Cats
went down quietly, one, two, three
.i-. he.bholtomILt.he-inning and the
game ended.


The Hardee JV had only one
game last week, losing 8-4 to Avon
Park. Hardee got the first score in
the opening inning,. when Ashley
Alden was save on an error, stole
second and third, and scored on a
Casey Johnson hit. Avon Park came
back with two runs on three hits
and two errors.
In the top of the'second, Hardee
went in front 4-2. Christina English
walked. A Lindsey Moye double
had English racing home. Alden


walked. A Ciara Chancey doubled
put Moye and Alden at home plate.
Avon Park knotted the game in
the bottom of the second and went
on to add three more runs in the
third and a final tally in the fourth.
On Friday, the Hardee JV did not
have enough players to field a team
and played a scrimmage against the
junior Lady Tigers. For the final
week of the season, the JV will join
with the varsity.


The search for truth is more precious than its possession.

Picnic Tables Coming To Park


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The final touch, benches and pic-
nic tables, are coming to Oak Street
Park.
Already being well used, the
Phase I renovations to the park
alongside the Catheryn McDonald
Senior Center at North Eighth
Avenue and West Oak Street in
Wauchula, are a little shy of com-
plete.
At Monday evening's Wauchula
City Commission meeting, discus-
sion centered on the need for a
place for parents to sit while their
children enjoy the new playground
equipment.
Director of Public Works Ray
McClellan reported that tables and
"benches out of steel are being built
and will be cemented in the ground
around the playground.
Olivia Minshew, community
development director, reported that
the contractor did an on-site visit
and planned for shade tarps or a
canopy over the playground area.
An official ribbon-cutting for the
newly remodeled park will be set
shortly.
Commissioner Jerry Conerly in-
quired when Phase II of the park
would be done. Minshew said the
state grant cycle opens in June or
July and she would keep the com-
mission posted.
In a similar matter, the commis-
sion discussed delays in opening a
proposed Cuban restaurant at Park
Place, the renovated old Cranford
building adjacent to Heritage Park.
Minshew reported there is a
signed contract, delayed because
the businessman incurred heavy
hurricane damages in a similar
business in South Florida. Plans
now are to have it open by late May
or early June.
Minshew also said the duct work
'and stove fan would be done and
inspected by the end of the week,
finishing hurricane repairs which
were paid 80 percent by insurance
Sand 20 percent by Community Re-
'development Agency (CRA) funds.
City Manager Rick Giroux said
the balance paid by CRA funds
,.would be repaid by the monthly
,rent. The lease includes the upgrad-
ed kitchen and awaits only appli-
ances being moved in.
Commissioner Amy McClellan
said because the facility is now
being locked in as a restaurant with
the $23,000 kitchen, it was impor-


tant to get something going.
"Business is business. The city
owns it. I'm anxious to see some-
thing happen. He needs to start pay-
ing his rent We've been more than.
generous with the delays."
"If it fails to materialize there are
other interested parties," said
Conerly.
In other matters, the commission:
approved on roll call vote the
second reading of an ordinance cre-
ating the "Wauchula Water and
Wastewater Chapter 180 Reserve
Area, which gives the city first
option to provide these services
within a five-mile area around the
city, if it does not infringe on ser-
vices Bowling Green. Zolfo
Springs or the county already pro-
vide or have in the future planning
stages.
approved first reading of a
series of ordinances to annex near-
ly five acres on South Florida
Avenue which will become a
Florida Institute for Neurologic
Rehabilitation assisted living facili-
ty, assign the property a zoning des-
ignation of Commercial I and send-
ing the land use plan change to the
state for approval.
approved first reading of an
ordinance to amend the pension
plan advisory committee composi-
tion to include members from the
fire and police pension committee
as these pensions are being incor-
porated into the city pension sys-
tem.
approved an ordinance of
budget amendments to include the
purchase and installation of an
emergency generator for the city
administration building. "That's the
last step in storm preparations,"
said Giroux. Recently, storm shut-
ters were installed to protect the
building in case of a hurricane. "By
the end of the month, we'll be able
to function despite the weather sit-
uation," Giroux said.
approved a resolution accept-
ing the state's renewed designation
of a Rural Area of Economic
Concern, which includes DeSoto,
Hardee, Hendry, Glades, Highlands
and Okeechobee counties and the
cities of Pahokee, South Bay,
Immokalee and Wauchula.
"The designation gives us extra
points on grant applications and
also brings us technical assistance,"
said Giroux.


learned that a planned request
for a variance to build d' /lexes on
Alice Street off Heard Bridge Road
was withdrawn. There was opposi-
tion at the Planning and Zoning
meeting and that board was recom-
mending it not be approved.
Instead, the owner will replace a
hurricane-damaged home with a
three bedroom, two bath concrete
block home compatible with the
existing residential area. .
decided that it was not inter-
ested in selling the eighth lot in the
Avalon Park subdivision where the
city trailer park was eliminated and
single-family homes built. Al-
though the city may change plans
to put a small playground or park
there because of the Oak Street
park improvements, the commis-
sion wanted more time to pursue its
options.
learned there are delays in
opening the Peace River Park east
of town. A park ranger is there.
However, the state park service is
coming to burn trees downed by the
hurricanes and opening will await
the completion of this work.
learned that a correctional
institution work crew, will work
Tuesday through Fridays and will
start with cleaning out the ditch
from U. S. 17 to the river. .
learned that a skate park con-
test with about 80 skaters was fea-
tured on local news channels.

Light One Candle
By Dennis Heaney
President Of The Christophers


THE LIGHT OF EASTER'S DAWN
When it comes to symbols, Easter certainly has its fair share. Eggs, bas-
kets, bunnies (especially chocolate ones!) all come to mind. There may be
fewer bonnets on parade than in years past, but chicks and ducks and other
fluffy spring newborns are common trappings of the season.
All are popular signs of the Easter holiday, as opposed to the Easter
holy day. And I enjoy them. Jelly beans, chocolate eggs, marshmallow
chicks what's not to like? Besides, I might be drummed out of the
Grandparents Hall of Fame if the Easter Bunny didn't provide brimming
baskets for all of our grandkids.
Still, Easter is no more a simple spring festival than Christmas is just a
winter break.
Easter is not only the most solemn Christian feast, it's the celebration
of life over death and forgiveness over sin. Christians come in many denom-
inations, and, God knows, we disagree about many things. Yet we can agree
that on that first Easter morning, the universe changed because Jesus of
Nazareth, the Son of God, rose from the dead.
So while we hide colorful eggs for the youngsters to hunt and enjoy a
feast of roast lamb or baked ham, or whatever our family tradition calls for,
we must remember the spiritual essence of Easter long after we step outside
of church.
I've come to believe that the essential symbol of Easter is light.
Recently, I found a story that reminded me of the power of light as it shat-
ters the darkness. I've been reading the manuscript for a new 60th anniver-
sary edition of "You Can Change The World." This book was written by the
Rev. James Keller, the founder of The Christophers, and I'll be telling you
more about it in a future column. It was one of his recollections that got me
thinking about light and Jesus Christ and about what God asks of us.
Father Keller was arranging for a benefit concert to be held at the old
Metropolitan Opera House in New York City and the assistant manager
offered to show him the seating arrangements. It was late and the auditori-
um was dark. The man told Father Keller to wait while he headed for the
bank of light switches. Suddenly, he struck a match and "that speck.of light
was greater than all the darkness around it."
Father Keller continued, "That's how it is with us. The least person, no
matter how insignificant, who is interested in bringing the light of Christ's
truth to the whole world is likewise a pinpoint of light in the darkness and
is, by God's grace, greater than all the encircling gloom."
Our Christian liturgies reflect these beliefs. Many Easter Vigil liturgies
include the blessing and lighting of the Paschal candle which, in turn, lights
all the candles which members of the congregation hold. Many denomina-
tions around the world celebrate Easter sunrise services so that people can
join in prayer and song as first light dispels the night.
These customs are beautiful, but they are meaningful because they cap-
ture the real meaning of Easter: the victory of God's love over human fear,
hatred and indifference. As the dawn reveals the emptiness of His tomb,
Jesus Christ makes Himself known to us as the true light of the world.
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it"
(John 1:5).
With God's help, we will add our light to His and brighten our own cor-
ner of the world. Happy Easter!

WEATHER SUMMARY
Light rains by the end of the week came too late to prevent several wild
fires throughout the week of April 3 through 10. More rains are needed to
decrease the persisting dry conditions across the State. Minimal rains
improved soil moisture supplies in some localities. Areas across the
Peninsula are still at high risk for more potential wild fires. Rainfall
amounts varied. Immokalee reported no rainfall; four inches were recorded
at Avalon. Other areas receiving over an inch of precipitation included
Alachua, Citra, Monticello, Pierson and Putnam Hall. Dover recorded two
inches of rainfall for the week. Elsewhere, all other localities received
under an inch of rain. Daytime highs were in the 80s with a few cities
reaching the 90s at least one day. Pleasant evening lows were in the 50s and
60s with some localities recording at least one nighttime low in the 40s.
FIELD CROPS
Substantial rains are needed across the Panhandle and Peninsula areas
to help elevate soil moisture supplies. Topsoil and subsoil moisture sup-
plies are rated mostly very short across the State. Growers in Washington
County have stopped fieldwork due to dry, hard soils. Dry conditions have
prevented summer perennials from actively growing in Washington
County. Pecans are budding out in Jefferson County. Growers are unable to
begin planting cotton due to extremely dry soils in Jackson County.

VEGETABLES
Harvesting in the central and southern Peninsula remains active as
growers supply the spring holiday demand. Dry conditions have led to
insect and disease problems in Dade County. Producers in the central
Peninsula are picking blueberries with light supplies available. Strawberry
harvesting is nearly finished in the Plant City. area. Growers marketed snap
beans, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, escarole, lettuce,
potatoes, peppers, radishes, squash, sweet corn and tomatoes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, most small grain for grazing is poor due to drought
and permanent pasture growth is slow due to late frost and drought. Hay
supplies are low. Most stock ponds are receding. In the central areas, many
cattlemen are about to feed the last of their hay. In the southwest, pasture
condition is very poor to fair with most fair due to drought. Statewide, cat-
tle condition ranged from very poor to good with most in fair condition.

CITRUS
After what began as another dry week, thunderstorms passed across the
State on Saturday evening and into Sunday morning bringing varied
amounts of rainfall to most of the citrus producing counties. The heaviest
recorded rainfall was in the northern citrus areas at almost an inch, the least
in the center of the State at less than one tenth of an inch. Immokalee
recorded no rainfall. Daytime temperatures across the citrps belt were inthe
. mid tohigh 80smost:of the week, reaching over 90,at, Jast;oneday in Lake
*Alfred. Frequent irrigation, has become common .practice in ,all areas.
Growers are putting out final applications of pesticide, still continuing to
hedge behind harvesting of grapefruit and some caretakers are discing,
chopping and mowing cover crops prior to and following harvesting.

Varieties of oranges and grapefruit are beginning petal drop and forming
pea-sized fruit. Field workers reported that new fruit on grapefruit is pro-
gressing well on the east coast. Valencia weekly harvest has picked up as
the main effort, but maturity levels are still lagging behind last year. The
majority of grapefruit continues to go to processing. Honey tangerine uti-
lization is running about one hundred fifty thousand boxes a week, being
picked primarily for the fresh market, while almost all of the Temples being
picked are going to processing.

#44 Lance Benavides
Junior Jake Spencer had a good
outing on the mound, throwing six-
plus innings, with classmate Lance
Benavides finishing the seventh,
and extra eighth inning for the win.
Benavides also drilled a three-run
homer to give Hardee a first-inning
lead and took player-of-the game
honors.
Hardee opened against the
Bloodhounds pitcher with a Palmer
single and Krause as a hit batsman
before Benavides smacked one
over the fence. Hardee led 3-0.
The game rocked along to the
third inning when each team plated
a pair of scores.
Krause singled, Lance Benavides
drew a walk and Krause raced
home on a Robbie Abbott hit.
Abbott was out on the Shumard


fielder's choice which brought
Benavides home. Gilliard singled
to left field but two were on base
when the final out happened.
Auburndale got twin tallies from a
walk, double and single. Hardee
was up 5-2.
Auburndale made it 5-4, with
another pair of scores in the home
half of the fourth on back-to-back
singles and a double. The.
Bloodhounds knotted the game 5-5
with a solo score in the fifth on a
single, stolen base and error.
In the sixth, Hardee retook the
lead with two runs. Altman singled
but was out attempting to steal.
Jarrett Benavides, Gullatt and
Palmer all singled, with the first
two coming home on the Palmer hit
to deep left field.
Auburndale came back with its
own pair of runs in the bottom of
the sixth on a walk, hit batsman and
error.
Neither team could score in the
seventh, sending the game to an
extra inning.
In the top of the eighth, Hardee
sent eight men to the plate. Bigelow
drew a walk, Palmer doubled to
center field and back-to-back walks
loaded the bases and pushed
Bigelow to home plate. An error on
a Gilliard hit allowed Palmer to
come in. Hardee led 9-7.
Auburndale left two runners on
base when Benavides struck out the
final pair of batters to preserve the
Hardee win.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER'

Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia
U


You and I were born to live.
Christ was born to die-for our
sins. But He didn't stay dead. He
arose, "Then came Jesus." .
Meet the Christ. He who left ii
sadness returned in gladness
with the same body that wai
nailed to the cross and laid in th
tomb; not a phantom.
Mark the contact. Christ cam4
"then," to turn their remorse inti
radiance, their trials into triJ
umphs.
Mark the capability. They ha(
left all, and lost all. 'Then" Chris
came, giving them pardon
peace and power.
They're yours for the taking.


In life, Christ bowed His head in prayer, arms stretched out to the multitudes. On the
Cross, He bowed His head in death, arms tortuously stretched to thdr limits and
encompassing the sins of the world. Fulfilling the will of His Father in Heaven, Christ was
Crudfied, forever merciful and forgiving, praying with His last breath in behalf of His
persecutors, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:24).
Christ's mission was sure, His struggle to endure the pain of His Crucifixion was for
the eternal forgiveness of the sins of the humankind. God sacrificed His Son for you and for
me... forever.
On this Easter Sunday, may we bow our heads in humility as did our Savior so long
ago, and thank God Alnmighty with our hearts and souls for this life of His Son. On this most
special of Christian occasions, may your burden be light, for Christ has bome it on Calvary.

With just a half dozen teams in
the league, everyone gets to play

8:15 games on Field 3 and only a
6:45 game on Field 4 at the
Recreation Complex fields just

There is no admission cost.

Golden Nuggets
By Lorraine and John Gillespie
Alpha & Omega Freedom Ministries of Wauchula


When angry do not sin; do not ever let your wrath
(your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last
until the sun goes down.
-Ephesians 4:26
It seems by this Scripture what causes the anger to become sin is when
we let it go beyond the sun going down. We know from our studies and
teachings if we don't deal with anger quickly it can grow into bitterness and
unforgiveness so it certainly opens the door for the devil to walk right into
our lives.
It can affect all our relationships including; our families, friends and
co-workers. It causes us to murder, do sexual offenses, hate, stress, sickness
in our bodies, and separates us from God.
I have heard people say I'll never forgive that person. It will cause the
unforgiving person all kind of problems. In fact, the Bible says if we won't
forgive others He won't forgive us. So if your prayers are not being
answered, a Golden Nugget would be to search your heart (or rather let God
do it, we don't know our own heart), then repent of your anger and unfor-
giving heart quickly.


The worst of a modern stylish
mansion is that it has no place
for ghosts.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes


Venice is like eating an' entire
box of chocolate liqueurs in one
go.
-Truman Capote

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

"MUSIC IN THE PARK" FEATURES EMANON JAZZ
Hey folks, mark your calendar for the next fun night out here at
Highlands Hammock State Park. Pack up a delightful picnic basket or treat
yourselves to dinner at the Hammock Inn, then kick back, relax and enjoy
great jazz tunes.
Emanon Jazz is returning to the Hammock. This is the band that helped
us get it all started a few years ago. Emanon's performance was the one that
kicked off the "Music in the Park" concerts and brought rave reviews from
attendees.
David Naylor, Doug Andrews, Davis Collister and Bill Anderson are
Emanon. Together they bring nearly a century of performing experience to
the stage, as each one of them has a long history of musical performances.,
All have played both locally, throughout the U.S. and even abroad.
All the guys mention how much fun it is to be a member of a group
where all the performers are "top-notch." Those of us who have heard them
perform can attest this as a true statement. It's obvious that these guys have
a lot of fun playing music together. "We just love to play, and especially to
play jazz," says Davis Collister, the bass player.
"The jazz music that Emanon plays is not just fun, but also listener
friendly," adds band member Doug Andrews. "The core of the music is
drawn from both the Great American Song Book, music by Porter,
Ellington and Mercer, as well as the great jazz standards by Parker, Monk;
Coltrane, Mingus and many others of our great musical heritage. "These are
just not heard often enough these days, says David Naylor. "We play this
music because we love it, but at the same time we are also trying to keep
the melodies alive by performing this body of literature."
So plan to come listen to the soothing sounds of jazz as you a re bathed
in starlight and immersed in the quiet surroundings of the state park. The
peace of the woods and the flicker of candlelight and moonbeams offer a
perfect setting for an evening of jazz. We hope to see you, out here in the
"Real Florida".

WANT TO COME?
Concert admission is just $5 per person, payable at the picnic area
entrance. Remember, accompanied children 16 & under are admitted free
of charge. Registered campers receive a discount, paying just $3 per person.
Make a weekend of it by calling 800-326-3521 for campsite reservations!
Reservations also available online at www.ReserveAmerica.com. *
The park entrance fee of $4 per vehicle (up to eight people) applies
before 6 pm. for those desiring to set up picnic sites early. Concert begins
promptly at 7 p.m. Bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating, picnic baskets
or coolers, and flashlights for the brief walk back to your vehicle following
the concert. The Hammock Inn (863) 385-7025 will be open and serving
dinner, desserts and snacks.


WHAT IS GOD'S WILL?
Q: How do you know God's will for your life? I feel I'm standing
at a cross road in my life and I have no idea which path to take. How
can we truly know what we are supposed to do? I am so afraid of mak+
ing the wrong move and messing up everything.
A: Life doesn't come with a road map; we all wish it would. We have
to pray, listen and know that God is leading us and it is not our desires,
whims and wishes.
Life is full of curves and twists and if chose our p:" n way we w would
get ourselves lost on this journey called life. Sometimes-we already know
the right direction but we stop and stare into our compass questioning its
credibility because the right way isn't always the easiest. We want to take
the path that someone has already prepared; beaten down the briers, pulled
up the stumps, killed all the snakes and made easy for our feet to tread
upon. But, sometimes we have to take that big leap of faith and trust that
God .will catch us.
Robert Frost, a famous poet, once wrote "Two roads diverged in the
woods, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the dif-
ference."
When you're staring down a fork in the road how do you know which
path to take? Listen to the voice of God and allow His peace to guide you.
When do you know you've taken the wrong path? There will be no
peace or joy and you'll be in constant turmoil tossing about as a boat on a
sea with nowhere to land. God's perfect will isn't always easy but it's cou-
pled with peace, embraced with joy and full of happiness.
As the Children of Israel marched, along being chased by their enemy,
they questioned if God was directing them. Moses in all his faith knew God
had plotted out the journey and wouldn't leave them. Even with a seastand-
ing in his way, he prayed, listened and obeyed. Talk about a road least trav-
eled, I'd say no one has every crossed the bottom of the Red-Sea. But if it's
a journey God has ordained He will walk with you on it.
Your first step is to pray for God to show you what you need to do.
Then trust Him to see you through. He will never leave you nor forsake
you.
Signed Penny

Seniors Act Up!: Pictured on the


Freda's Foibles
By Freda B. Douglas


He arose! He arose! What a glorious world that phrase gave to us chil-
dren of God.
For several years I have been following Cayce Charities, whose letter-
head declares: "Serving the Needs of Central Arkansas for Over 45 Years."
I have even written about its need for warm clothing during the holidays or,
at least, a donation of money so it can buy necessities for needy children.
At that time, the charity was attempting to handle the needs of about 500
children and.elderly. ... ..-. .......
*-- Now, especially since hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the number of clients
:it.serves has topped 5,000. Now, besides warm clothes it gives out furniture
and appliances as well as bedding, and the list goes on and on.
.2 The charity has been using the gymnasium of an abandoned school for
its giveaways for several years but, alas, the owners of the school building
will put it up for sale "to the highest bidder" the first day of May. JoAnn
Cayce believes a bid of $30,000 will take it, although nobody can be sure.
A lot of prayers have to be submitted along with the cash donations.
She makes a more than generous offer. Although any donation is tax
deductible because it is a registered 501C charity, accurate records will be
kept and if the $30,000 bid doesn't take the building, and you ask that your
donation be returned, she will see that it is done.
She. goes on to say the building has been well-maintained and they'
won't find it necessary to do any maintenance to keep the project open for
the people who depend on them for sustenance.
In the sense of charity prevalent in Hardee County and in the Lenten
spirit, won't you open your hearts and pocketbooks to help these needy
children? The address to send your donations and your prayers is: Cayce
Charity, P.O. Box 38, Thornton, AR 71766.
If want to call JoAnn Cayce to verify the facts I have quoted, her num-
ber is (870) 352-3104. God will surely bless you for whatever size donation
or prayer you send.
May you have a blessed Easter, and remember God loves all His crea-
tures

The Dixie Youth boys, formerly
called the Juniors division, began
play with a Saturday tilt.
The Torrey Oaks Rangers and
BJD Excavating Red Sox were the
first two teams of the 13- and 14-
year-old division to get going. The
third local squad, the Florida
Fertilizer Braves, was idle.
The three teams will compete
against each other and teams from
Fort Meade, Northeast -Winter
Haven and Bartow in the coming
weeks, leading up to the May 29
championship game, if necessary.
Saturday's game was dominated
by pitchers Kody Porter' for the
Rangers, and Nick Battles for the
Red Sox, which won 1-0. Porter
struck out eight and Battles retired
a dozen on strikeouts. Good defens-
es for both teams backed up the
pitching performances.
The Red Sox got their only run in
the top of the sixth when Jacob

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


CREATION: TOOLS, ART & EVOLUTION
Without tools, evolution of man most likely would have ceased some-
where near the mouth of the cave. Can you imagine early hominoid crea-
tures crawling out of the cave's dank safety into the bright light of day to
face saber-toothed tigers bare handed?
When we highly-advanced 21st-century sophisticates hear the word
"technology," we just naturally think of computers scanning the sum of
man's knowledge in the bat of an eye or starships zooming through the
galaxy at the speed of light. We tend to forget that, basically, technology
refers to the ability of human beings to make things that sustain them and
give them some control over their environment.
The earliest technology consisted of stone tools made by chipping
away at one stone with another, creating an edge, making an early axe.
These technological marvels eventually were set into wooden handles.
Time, once set into motion, continued to creep onward and technology
evolved to such an astonishingly high degree that magnificent creations like
bone needles were invented. These were used to make nets and baskets, and
even to sew animal hides together for clothing.
One day a wheel came rolling downhill. Then came a wagon, a buggy,
a stagecoach, a car by then, of course, man was eyeing the final fron-
tier, the stars.
Tools not only have allowed man to survive, but prevail. It has been
argued in high places that it is tools that separate man from lower animals,
those lacking self-awareness and, so far as we know, a soul.
I think the thing that sets man apart is art.
Not just the Mona Lisa and the Sistine Chapel, but those early axes and
bone needles also, masterpieces of ingenuity at that stage in God's"plan of
creation!
It isn't actually the art that sets man apart it's his ability to create it.
Before he can make anything, even a toothpick, he must imagine it.
"Imagination is a magic dream," says a song: "a bridge across the
ocean, a highway to the moon. ." I believe, further, imagination is that
likeness of God in which the Bible says man is created. Imagination is of
mind, a reality separate from the gray matter of the brain.
Indian mystic Paramahansa Yogananda in his awe-inspiring best-sell-
ing book, "Autobiography of a Yogi," suggests all physical matter is built
upon a foundation of mind energy, that all of physical existence as we expe-
rience it is an illusion, part of a dream of God. (Quantum physics seems to
support this idea to some degree in its assertion that even solids as sub-
stantial as steel are made up of more empty space, between atoms, than
actual matter; Hindus would say this space, which glues all physical matter
together and keeps it from spinning wildly into chaos, is part of the mind of
God.)
The greaj Christian mystic, artist, philosopher and poet William Blake,
who moments before his death in August of 1827 "began to glow with
celestial radiance as he burst into song praising the things he saw in
Heaven," believed Jesus was the greatest artist who ever lived, the universe
His canvas, His human life His masterpiece.
Some may find it surprising that I toss around freely such apparently
opposing terms as Christian and Hindu, mystic and Christ, evolution and
creation. But I think too often we limit Christ and that such terms are not
necessarily mutually exclusive.
After exposure to Dr. Gerald L. Schroeder's "Genesis & the Big
Bang," "The Science of God," "The Hidden Face of God," and Marvin
Olansky's "Monkey Business" an interesting look through the murky
cloud of misinformation that has surrounded the 1925 Scopes "Monkey
Trial" since the 1960 Hollywood film "Inherit the Wind" muddied the
waters I am far from convinced that evolution is as certain as many in
that camp would have us believe.
But if some degree of evolution should evolve from fiction into fact,
isn't it a brilliant tool for the Master Artist to have employed in the sculpt-
ing of His universe? .,
