NEARING COMPLETION


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Unit of the
American Cancer Society will be
honoring cancer survivors and
those who have lost their battle
with the disease during its annual
marathon event beginning tomor-
row (Friday).
"Relay For Life" is a celebration
of life in honor of those touched by
cancer, and offers communities an
opportunity to participate in the
fight against cancer.
It is the signature activity of the
American Cancer Society and rais-
es funds for programs of research,


LUJUIT IIEO FIrVlT
The Hardee County School Board last Thursday night heard a construction report and considered staffing and transportation
issues for the campus of the new HiiltopElfementary School and the relo ated Hardee Junior High School. This aerial shot shows
the shiny new facility, located off U.S. 17 and Maxwell Road north of Wauchula. Mikl Imbler of P1ter Brown Construction Inc. told
the board five buildings are now substantially complete and four soon will be, with the remaining four ready by the end of May.
Imbler described the project as 4 to 4-1/2 months ahead of schedule. Schools Superintendent Dennis Jones assured board mem-
bers and the public that open houses will be held to showcase the new campus as soon as it is ready. This photo shows U.S. 17
running across the top. The administration building (top center, at the entrance roadway) will greet visitors. The junior high class-
rooms are on the left, with the elementary rooms on the right. In the center are the cafeteria, media center and other shared facil-
ities. The large buildings just right of them are the auditorium and gymnasium. See next week's edition for an update on staffing
and other issues the new schools present.



Marijuana, Fighting Bring Expulsions


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A boy wh9 smoked marijuana at
school and another repeatedly
involved in fights have been
expelled.
That action was taken by the
Hardee County School Board at the
conclusion of two recent expulsion
hearings, held separately and, by
law, closed to the public. Their
decision brought the total number
Of expulsions for the 2005-06
school year up to 15.
The School Board also consid-
ered three more recommendations
for expulsion on Thursday night of
last week. While the hearings are
conducted in private, the informa-
_on presented in them and the final
outcomee will be released to the
public.
p Each of those students was from
flardee Junior High School, and
their expulsions would' boost the
total to 18.
In the two cases noted here, both
students are seventh-grade boys
from the junior high.


In the first case, a 13-year-old
was recommended for expulsion
after he smoked a marijuana ciga-
rette in the boys restroom between
classes.
He was present at the expulsion
hearing along with his mother and
father.
According to Deputy Super-
intendent Greg Dick, School Board
members were told the incident
took place on Thursday, Feb. 23.
The boy, he said, was eight min-
utes late to reading class, and the
teacher detected the smell on mari-
juana on him. Further, the boy had
been seen coming out of a restroom
on the second floor.
Dick said Dean of Students
Gregg White searched the boy,
looking for the illegal drug.


When asked if he had marijuana
at school, the boy reportedly
replied that yes, he did, but that he
had smoked it.
Dick said the boy admitted to the
offense and cooperated with school
authorities.
"Since he cooperated in the
investigation and was honest and
told the truth, the School Board
expelled him for the remainder of
this school year and for the first
semester of 2006-07," Dick said.
The punishment could have been
more severe.
The boy is eligible to continue
his education at Pioneer Career
Academy, the district's alternative
school in Zolfo Springs. He must
meet three requirements, however.
First, he must be evaluated by


Tri-County Addictions. Then he
must complete any of that pro-
gram's recommendations. Lastly,
he also must voluntarily submit to

A 10-year-old boy who picked
up a gun his grandfather had laid on
the trunk of a car ended up acciden-'

Hardee County Sheriff's Office

PARK PLANTING


Pedestrian Killed


On U.S. 17 North


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An unidentified Hispanic pedes-
trian died late Sunday..
According to a Florida Highway
Patrol report, the incident happened
at 11:25 p.m. when the man, whose
identity has not been released pend-
ing location and notification of
family, was walking northward in
the right outside lane in a dark,
unlighted area when he was hit by a
series of vehicles unable to avoid
him.
Wearing dark clothing, the man
was first hit by a 2002 Ford Escape
SUV driven by Anita Huerta
Aviles, 25, of 692 Sampson Acres
Road, Clinton, N.C. She and her
passengers, Antelmo Aviles, 26, of
the same address and Marco A.
Huerta, 18, of 828 S. 10th Ave.,
Wauchula, were uninjured. All
were wearing seat belts.
A 2001 F-450 truck behind the


first vehicle had changed lanes to
avoid the first vehicle and swerved
back but could not avoid hitting the
obstruction he saw in the roadway.
Neither the driver, Michael Andrew
Allison, 33, of 826 Cedar Knoll
Drive, Lakeland, nor his passenger,
Christopher M. Miller, 24, of 6523
Dartmouth Road, Lakeland, were
injured. Both were wearing seat
belts.
In turn, a third vehicle, a 1996
Ford Explorer SUV, driven by
Jesus G. Martinez-Ramirez, 19, of
4601 First St., Bowling Green,
veered left but was unable to avoid
the victim. The driver was wearing
seat belts and uninjured.
The pedestrian received fatal
injuries and was transported to the
medical examiner's office in
Lakeland. He becomes the third
fatality on Hardee County roads
this year. None of the drivers were
charged.

About 75 of the expected 400 trees have been planted so far this week at Pioneer Park. Before
the $133,000 state Department of Agriculture grant project Is completed, there will be 300 live
oaks, 50 longleaf pines, 25 maples and 25 cypress trees scattered around the 100-acre park to
replace most of those torn up by the 2004 hurricanes. Park manager Randall Solner describes
some of the work under way by CSA Land Preparation of Wauchula which will plant and maintain
the trees.

While my wife was visiting her mother one recent weekend, we boys t
at home made a stew with vegetables and ox tail. I had wanted to try ox tail t
for several years, but that is not allowed if my wife is in the kitchen. She
wants no part of eating a cow's tail or most wild game for that matter..
The boys and I loved the ox tail stew and will have it again someday t
when the coast is-clear. a

Most people are very interested in maintaining good health.
A few weeks ago I spent $129 to get four ultrasound screenings from
Life Line Screening at the First Baptist Church in Wauchula for
stroke/carotid artery, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial dis-
ease, and osteoporosis.
My test results came back fairly good, showing a slight blockage on
oimearotdOrtery and'a-little -ow-on-calcium. Since then.-I. he bgun--to- .

Linda Alvers, editor of the LST534 Newsletter, reports in jest,
"Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to W
spend an additional five months in a nursing home at $5,000 per month." tl
She also added for fun, "The advantage of exercising every day is that h
you die healthier." n

In Washington, D.C. is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The LST D
Newsletter reports guards take 21 steps (alluding to the 21-gun salute, the n
highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary). He then hesitates p
after his about face for 21 seconds before his return walk. The guard's t
gloves are moistened to prevent losing his grip on the rifle. c
The guard carries his rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb. The n
guards are changed every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For
a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, the candidate must be between. d
5-10 and 6-2 feet tall and the waist cannot exceed 30 inches. t
"Guards must commit two years of life to guard the tomb, live in a bar- f
racks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty for the d
rest of their lives. They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and s
cannot disgrace the uniform or the tomb in any way. After two years guards (
are given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as c
guard of the tomb. There are 400 presently worn. The guard must obey s
these rules for the rest of their lives or give up the wreath pin." \i
I assume women are eligible to be guards but do not know that as fact. I

As of April 3 Hardee County had 10,872 active voters. This included c
6,594 Democrats, 3,154 Republicans, 1,039 with no party affiliation, and
85 "other."
The county had 739 inactive voters, including 442 Democrats, 169
Republicans, 121 no party affiliation and 7 "other," according to Hardee
Supervisor of Elections Jeff Ussery.
In recent years there has been a dramatic growth in the number of reg-
istered Republican voters in Hardee County.

The St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in Zolfo Springs had a lovely
dedication service Sunday afternoon, April 9. The church, newly restored ,
after the 2004 hurricanes, is located at 3676 U.S. 17 South.
The pastor is Rev. Eugene Hollimon Jr. The song service was directed .
by Veronica Brown. Sherry Morris played the piano. Steve Wesson was the
guest speaker. There were many honorary guests. Chairperson for the event
was Pearl Welton.
Rev. Hollimon and Sister Welton dedicated the church as a place where
"prayer, is prominent, praise is precious and God's word is proclaimed." s
The church is for worshipping, Christian practice and witness.
Prayers were for St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church to be a "fortress
for the family, a haven for the hurting, a harbor for the lost, a school where
we learn and are trained, a greenhouse where the young are nurtured, a
courthouse where truth is supreme, a workshop where people are crafted
into His likeness, a tool shed where we can be useable for Him,' and a temr-
ple where the presence of God is known." i

Denise Benavides, unit director of
the American Cancer Society for
Hardee and Highlands counties.
The net goal for this year's Relay
For Life is $50,000. The funds
received are not allowed to go over
10 percent of the net goal.
The event lasts for a symbolic 18
hours. From the moment patients
are diagnosed with cancer, they go
through a dark period where they
are troubled with uncertainty. From
there, a shining ray of hope, which
is the treatment, allows them to go
on.
The evening is symbolic of that
time of despair, and the eventual
sunrise represents the return of
hope.
To kick off the event at 6:15 p.m.,
the cancer survivors will make their
way around the track for the
"Survivors' Victory Lap." After
that, a Survivors Reception is held
for them, while members of their
team continue to walk. One mem-
ber from each team walks the entire
18 hours of the relay.

The other boy was punished
according to the school's Code of
Conduct, but was not expelled.
This boy, however, was already on
suspension for fighting at the time
of this new incident, and had been
allowed onto campus only for the
administration of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test.
This made his third offense, Dick
said.
"Because of multiple occur-

board expelled him for the remain-

semester of 2006-07," Dick said.
The boy may attend Pioneer

National Infant Immunization
Veek is April 22-29. It promotes
he benefits of immunizations and
highlights the importance of vacci-
nating children by the age of 2.
The Hardee County Health
departmentt is taking this opportu-
iity to remind parents, caregivers,
providers and the community about
he importance of protecting all
children with timely infant immu-
aizations.
In the first 24 months of life, chil-
Iren need more than 80 percent of
heir vaccinations ,to protect them-
from diseases, disabilities and
leath. The scientific evidence
shows that immunizations are one
)f the most important things parents
;an do to protect their children from
serious infectious diseases, accord-
ng to the National Network for
Immunization Information.
Thanks to immunizations, highly
contagious illnesses such as polio,
measles and pertussis (whooping


cough), which used to be a common
part of childhood, are now relative-.
ly rare in this country.
Immunizations have an outstand-
ing safety record, and as a result of
medical research and ongoing
review by experts in infectious dis-
ease, they are getting safer and
more effective all the time.
Immunizations protect children,
families and the community, mak-
ing them one of the most cost-effec-
tive public health strategies.
Vaccines not only help protect vac-
cinated individuals from develop-
ing potentially serious diseases,
they also help protect entire com-
munities by preventing and reduc-
ing the spread of infectious agents.
Contact the Hardee County
Health Department at 773-4161 for
additional information or to sched-
ule your child's vaccination shots
today. You can also contact your
primary health care provider.

Q&A With A Biblical Perspective


WHAT IS GOD'S WILL?
Q: I am trying to live a Christian life. I have been called to do a
work for God. It gets really hard to do sometimes, when you live with
someone who makes remarks about things. I get angry and lose my
emper. this person knows how to push my buttons. What do I do?
A: When a relationship is unequally yoked together it is very hard. I
read a story the other day- where a man came to the altar and gave his life
to Jesus. His wife cried and cried. The usher handed her a form to fill out
recording his new conversion. The woman said, "That's OK. I've already
filled one out 40 years ago, I've had it in' my Bible every since. That is a
long time to endure percussion and ridicule. But, there are hundreds of tes-
imonies of spouses displaying the same enduring faith. The key is to be an
example and never quit praying.
You say you get angry when he pushes your buttons? You must main-
taini your Christian personality and fight the temptation to retaliate. He is
probably testing you to see what you are made of. The Word says, "I can do
all things through Christ who strengthens me."
On the flip side I am sure there are just as many testimonies of wives
who have left their spouses because the weight was more than they could
bear. It is never God's will for His children to be abused and if that is the
case then you need to seek help. Even verbal abuse can be damaging and
have a longterm effect.
Take comfort in knowing that you're not a doormat but a child of the
Most High God. My advice to you is to pray, pray, pray that God will save
him soon or give you wisdom to know what your next move should be.
don't allow the abuse to beat you down until thee is nothing left of you. You
are very important to God and He loves you very much. He sent His only
Son to die on the cross that you may have a more abundant life. walk in the
peace and freedom Jesus died for.

ChLetter To The Editor
Courthouse Changes Continue Good People Are Helping


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Another state grant will put some
finishing touches on courthouse
renovations which began several
years ago.
A $350,000 Small County
Courthouse Facilities Funds grant
will be divided between the county
and the Office of the Chief Judge of
the 10th Judicial Circuit.
The courts will use a little over
$56,000 for video-conferencing,
sound systems, network wiring and
computers for the county and cir-
cuit courtrooms.
The county will use the remain-
ing $293,679 to deal with the water
intrusion which periodically dis-
rupts first floor activities. Because
the first floor of the 1920s court-
house is partially below ground
level, rains negatively affects the
area.
Drains, sump pumps, a standby
generator, and the trenching, land-
scaping and related activities will
take most of the county's share of
the state monies. Any balance will
be used for construction of a badly
needed storage area for clerk of
court files.
In other action, the commission:
approved a proclamation of
April as Child Abuse and Neglect
Prevention Month presented by
Rev. Jeff Ramsland for the
Devereaux Kids program. There
were 3,194 children received pro-
tective services in Hardee,
Highlands and Polk counties last

Dear Editor,
This letter is in response to all the
news coverage Zolfo Springs has
received lately.
You and your readers may recall
a letter written by myself regarding
"gossip and hearsay" a few months
ago?
If not, let me refresh your memo-
ry. I do not respond to gossip or
hearsay. I never have, and I will not
start now. Because, 99 percent of
the time it is used as a weapon to
hurt others and/or to route attention
away from or to the person starting
it. Gossip and hearsay started is like
a cancer spreading until it destroys
all the good.
I know the accusations are all a
fabrication of one person.
However, I will not start pointing
fingers and bring myself down to
their level. This letter could be con-
sidered as a response.

I could care less what is said
about me, but I am writing to
defend all the other people being
hurt. The people being accused
have done nothing wrong. The one
thing and the only thing they are
guilty of is caring too much 'for"
Zolfo Springs.

the public is very unaware of.

What about the bread and sweets

These are only a couple among
many good deeds performed by
good people of Zolfo Springs. I

Sunday at Pioneer Park in Zolfo
Springs. The shows feature confor-
mation, obedience and rally events.
Rally, a new AKC dog sport
(since January 1, 2005) is taking the.
nation by storm. It is a successful
stepping-stone from the AKC
Canine Good Citizen program to
the world of obedience or agility.
Rally is fun and energizing for both
the dogs and the handlers. Rally is
new to the Heartland Dog Club
shows this year. A rally course
includes 10-20 stations. Scoring is
not as rigorous as regular obedi-
ence. Communication between the
handler and dog is encouraged and
"perfect" heel position is not
required, but there should be team-
work between the dog and handler.
The main objective of rally is to
produce dogs trained to behave in
the home, public places, and in the
presence of other dogs.
AKC obedience trials demon-
strate the usefulness of the purebred
dog as a companion to man. Each
dog competes for a qualifying score
that indicates the dog has per-
formed all the required exercises
correctly for a particular class. The
d-og must earn three qualifying
scores under three different judges
to earn the obedience title for its
level of competition.
Conformation has one dog in
each breed that is Best of Breed
each day. The owner, breeder, a
friend, or a professional handler
shows each dog. Any handler's goal
is to be invisible, moving in such a
way as to highlight the dog's best
attributes. Like coaches, dog han-
dlers may give their dogs a pep talk
before entering the show ring. The
Best of Breed in each breed com-


petes in one of the seven groups.
The first place winner in each group
meets in the Best in Show ring.
Only one dog emerges as the Best
in show for that day.
Conformation dogs compete
against each breed's standard, not
each other. The national club repre-
senting each breed writes its breed's
standard. The dog, in the judge's
opinion, that best represents that
breed, that day, wins. Each standard
varies from breed to breed, depend-
ing on the function the dog was
bred to perform, but often includes,
but is not limited to: size; how the
coat should look including
acceptable colors; the number of
teeth; the size and shape of the
head; and general temperament.
There are classes and prizes for
children as well Junior
Showmanship. The judge assesses
the skills of the junior handler
showing the dog, not the 'attributes
of the dog!
Enjoy a day of family fun and
visit the Heartland Dog Club shows
this weekend at Pioneer Park.
Woody's BBQ is the food vendor.
There are also vendors, who have
many usual and unusual -dog items
for sale. See over 120 AKC breeds.
Watch the obedience dogs jump,
retrieve, and work using only hand
signals. Talk to breeders and own-
ers. Learn why each person thinks
his or her dog is the best!;
Judging begins at 8:30 a.m. on
Saturday (1,088 dogs are entered)
and 8 a.m. on Sunday (1,082 dogs
are entered) and ends' when the
judge selects the Best in Show win-
ner in the afternoon. Free pamphlets
and dog educational material will
be available

Congratulations are due the Hardee boys track team and individual
members of the boys and girls teams.
The boys team won the Class 2A-District 11 championship at last
week's meet. Lisnell Youyoute and Jimmy Cimeus led the squad with a pair
of individual victories apiece. On the girls side of the ledger, Andrea
Parkinson, Postenea Louisjeune and Gloria Solis each also notched a pair
of wins in their events. The girls also won the 4x100 meter relay.
The top four in each event also advance to the Region 3 meet today
(Thursday) at Berkeley Prep in Tampa.

The Mosaic Athletic Benefit Golf Tournament April 8-9 was a success,
raising $40,000 for the 20 or more sports at Hardee Senior High School. A
former Wildcat, Michael Claman successfully defended his 2005 title, beat-
ing former teammate Hiland Sanders by three strokes. More than 100
golfers participated with many individuals and businesses supporting the
event as hole sponsors or contributing in other ways. CF Industries spon-
sored the Friday scramble which preceded the tournament.
In other golf news, congratulations to the winners and sponsors who
also made the recent Project Graduation golf tournament a success.
On tap this weekend is Saturday's sixth annual Ball Drop fund-raiser
to help the cheerleaders at Hardee High attend summer camp. Tickets are
$10 with a first prize of $500, second $300 and third $200. The drop will
be at 5 p.m. Saturday at Torrey Oaks but you do not have to be present to
win. For more information, contact Kristen Albritton or Susannah
Belflower at the school, 773-3181 or buy a ticket from any cheerleader.

The Hardee Wildcat baseball boys had a rough time last week, losing
district games at DeSoto and Palmetto and dropping to third in the seedings
for next week District 10 tournament at Avon Park. Hardee will play at 7:30
p.m. on Tuesday against Braden River.
The Cats showed a lot of spunk in bouncing back from a 4-4 tie to win
in the bottom of the seventh 5-4 against Lemon Bay, which has a 6-2 record
in District 11.

The JV Cats won a pair of district games last week to close out their
season with a 9-5 record, behind a group of sophomore pitchers, Dan
Timmons, Kaleb Saunders, Carl Basey and Josh Spencer.

The Hardee tennis teams were in district play at Sebring early this
.week. In opening matches Josh Ready, Boomer Olliff and Kaitlin Justice
,were successful. The tournament went on through Tuesday with final
.results unavailable at press time.

The Hardee softball girls ended their season at district competition on
Monday evening in Palmetto against Avon Park. The girls had a less than
stellar season and hope to be much improved next season as five of the
girls, Krystin Robetson, Amber and Chelsey Steedley, Jamie Buckley and
Emily Adams succeeded in tryouts for area summer teams and hope to ben-
efit greatly from that experience.

Boys weightlifting ended at sectionals, with Ricky Wiggins and Daniel
Moore coming real close to qualifying for state. David Newcomb and
Jordan Grimsley also look good for qualifying next year.

HJHS volleyball wrapped up on Monday evening at home against
Avon Park. A photo of the eighth and seventh grade teams is elsewhere in
this issue.

It's barely more than a week before the start of spring football drills.
The spring game will be at home this year. The opponent will be Lake
Wales. The game is set for May 19 at 7:30 p.m. See you there...put it on
.your calendar now.

In Men's Church SoftbaIl League, St. Michael's Catholic Church is the
only unbeaten team after knocking off Wauchula First Baptist 21-17 last
week. The games are competitive and spectators are welcome at the


Recreation Complex fields off Altman Road north of the high school for the
Tuesday and Thursday evening games.

Youth Sports, formerly called Little League, is under way. Games are
four evenings a week at the George Heine fields behind Farr Field on South
Florida Avenue in Wauchula. The girls Dixie Ponytails division plays at the
field at the Recreation Complex on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Information from community and school athletic events is always welcome.
Please call The Herald-Advocate (773-3255) or e-mail me at news.heral-
dadvocate@earthlink.net with news for this biweekly column. The sports
news deadline is noon Mondays. News will be included as soon as time and
space allows.

a whole bunch of fun is ready for your family! The event begins at 8 a.m.
and lasts until 2 p.m., Park admission is free all day long.

history exhibit. Observe early Dutch oven cooking, homemaking skills, or
play some of their games. Look into their tent and see their actual living
arrangements.
Also in this area will be two new visitors. They've both traveled a long
way to share information on their lives and service. Come see the display

vice. Also on hand will be an 1830s Territorial Militia member to explain

8A The Herald-Advocate, April 20, 2006



WEATHER SUMMARY
Dry weather persisted over most of the State during the week of April
10 through 16. Significant rains fell only on the extreme southern tip of the
Peninsula at the beginning of the week. Elsewhere, only traces fell on a few
central and southeastern coastal localities. Homestead recorded about two
inches of rain for the week; West Palm Beach, about an inch and a quarter;
Ft. Lauderdale, around three-quarters inch; Tampa, around a one-third inch;
and Orlando, about a quarter inch. The potential for wildfires is high for the
entire State with the Division of Forestry fighting a significant fire near
Panama City during the week. Temperatures for the week averaged within
a degree or two of normal in the major cities. Daytime highs were in the 70s
and 80s with Orlando and Tallahassee reporting at least one high in the 90s.
Nighttime lows were in the 50s and 60s with several localities reporting at
least one low in the 40s.
FIELD CROPS
Dry, hard soils are preventing most producers from preparing fields
and planting peanuts and cotton. In Washington County, some growers
returned corn seed due to the dry soils and are considering planting other
rotation crops. Topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies were rated mostly
very short to short statewide. Adequate soil moisture was reported by a few
Panhandle and central and southern Peninsula counties. Dade County
reported a few spots of surplus moisture with the early week rainfall caus-
ing standing water in a few fields. However, the surplus moisture reports
were less than one half of one percent statewide.

VEGETABLES
Harvesting slowed slightly as producers observed the spring holiday
weekend. Tomato transplanting wound down in the Quincy area with grow-
ers virtually finished. Watermelon picking in southern areas gained
momentum as more acreage reached maturity. The dry weather is lowering

the incidence of disease, especially in some northern and Panhandle fields.
Other vegetables and non citrus fruits marketed during the week included
snap beans, blueberries, cabbage, celery, sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant,
endive, escarole, lettuce, peppers, radishes, squash, strawberries, and toma-
toes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, late season grazing of winter forages and clovers has
been severely reduced because of the lack of rainfall. Permanent pastures
are not growing either. Supplemental hay is being fed. In the North, there
are burn restrictions due to dry conditions. Cattle and pasture conditions are
mostly poor. In the central areas, pasture and cattle conditions are mostly
fair. In the southwest, pasture condition is very poor to fair with most in
poor condition due to drought. Statewide, cattle condition ranges from very
poor to good with most in fair condition.

CITRUS
Temperatures in all citrus producing counties were moderately cool at
night for the week, but reached the mid to high 80s during the day, peaking
over the weekend. Another week was recorded with no significant rainfall
in any citrus producing counties. Below average rainfall over the last sev-
eral weeks has spawned dry conditions, causing growers to irrigate on a
regular basis. Final applications of pesticides are being put down; limited
hedging is taking place and some caretakers are discing, chopping and
mowing cover crops. Bloom has ended in all areas with trees forming fruit
for next season's crop. Valencia harvest is in full swing but maturity levels
are still lagging behind last year. The majority of the remaining Grapefruit
continues to go to processing. Honey tangerine utilization is running about
one hundred fifty thousand boxes a week, being picked primarily for the
fresh market, while Temple harvest is winding down for the season.

Freda's Foibles
"By Freda B. Douglas


. Nobody who gave his best ever regretted it.


There are a couple things very wrong about our society that have been
bothering me ever since I became classified as a "senior citizen." If I offend
my younger readers, I ask them to bear with me. You'll be there one of these
,days. And if somebody in my generation doesn't speak up now, things
might get worse.
Are you aware the political candidates you helped put into office as
well as those who got in office without your help live high on the hog
while they are in office and higher on the hog on our tax dollars when they
retire?
That leads me to one of my pet peeves. It's the elected official trusted
with our welfare who raises taxes without giving any heed how his con-
stituents are going to pay for them. He doesn't have to worry about us less
than wealthy voters because if he is expected to pay taxes, we taxpayers
provide him ample money.
Did you ever get political flyers in the mail? Do you think the politi-
cians reach into their pockets to pay the postage? I doubt it. How about their
hospitalization? Yet did you ever have a doctor tell you that you needed
surgery, only to hear Medicare considers that particular surgery "preven-
tive?" How about when your hearing starts to "go south." Medicare also
considers hearing aids as "preventive." Who cares the hearing aid helps a
wearer feel a part of this world?
I could go on and on, but you get my point.
Do the politicians care? Not so you can notice. Would they care if they
were in a similar situation? They would be the first to scream "foul!"
Another sore point with me and Medicare: Medicare will just pay for
one wheelchair, no matter how many years you might be obligated to use
it. When I first got an electric-powered chair, the rule was you might be able
to replace it in five years. What happened? The knuckleheads in
Washington changed the law.
Speaking of wheelchairs, I'd wager you don't find handicapped people
making decisions about designs. I know the company that made mine did-
n't.
Now, closer to home: My electric bill took a $65 jump this month
When I called to see if I could get some financial help with it, I was told,
"You're eligible, but we don't have any funds."
My dad used to have a sign in his office: "I complained I had no shoes
until I saw a man with no feet." The only reason I bared my soul to my read-
ers this week is that I know there are lots of you out there who are much
worse off than I. I just want you to know I care.
If there were a way I could change the system, I would. But nobody
can except those who made it. And they're not going to. They like the cushy
jobs our taxes provide them.
It's easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn't.

Look On The Bright Side
By David Kelly


WHY WON'T WE GO!?!
Many.times we refuse to go to Christ! Dare I say that none of us has
ever had the angel of the Lord appear to us and tell us to go see Christ
wrapped in cloths lying in a manger? But we do have the Word of God all
around us. We have Christ's life to look at. His message has been made
known to us as well.
.... When will we go to it? How will we go to it? At our leisure, when we
need it, desperate for hope? My prayer is that we will do as the shepherds
and-ook at one another.and say "let's go," and make haste doing so.
?And let us not go irreverently unaware of Who we are beholding.
Christ is our intercessor. God, the maker of the heavens and the earth and
our eternal judge, has come to meet with us.
* Lastly, what did they do when they witnessed Jesus?
""'And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been
told them-concerning 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. "And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising
God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. 21And 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."
They made known the saying that had been told them. They returned
glorifying and praising God.

Hefe's a story of a mother who found the importance of following God
through childbirth, as told by in an excerpt from a Peter Marshall book:
"A minister tells of going to a hospital to visit a mother whose firs
child had been born. She was a distinctively modern girl. Her home wa
about average for young married people.
"When I came into the room she was propped up in bed writing.
'Come in,' she said, smiling. 'I'm in the midst of housecleaning and
I want your help.'
"I had never heard of a woman housecleaning while in a hospital bed
i-er smile 'was contagious; she seemed to have found a new and jolly idea
(Or it had found her.)
'I've had a wonderful chance to think here,' she began, 'and it ma:
help me to get things straightened out in my mind if I can talk to you.'
"She put down her pencil and pad and folded her hands. Then she tool
a long breath and started:
'Ever since I was a little girl, I hated any sort of restraint. I always


'You can fail in'love at first sight with a place as with'a peron.ii

wanted to be free. When I finished higli school, I took a business course and,
S. got a job, not because I needed the money but because I wanted to be on
my own.
'Before Joe and I were married, we used to say that we would not be
slaves to each other. And after we married our apartment became head-
quarters for a crowd just like us. We weren't really bad, but we did just what
we pleased.'
* "She stopped for a minute and smiled ruefully.
'God didn't mean much to us; we ignored Him. None of us wanted,
children, or we thought we didn't. And when I knew I was going to have a
baby, I was afraid.'
t "She stopped and looked puzzled. 'Isn't it funny, the things you used'
to think?'
"She had almost forgotten I was there; she was speaking to the old girl
she had been before her great adventure. Then, remembering me, suddenly
she went on: 'Where was I? Oh, yes, well things are different now. I'm not
Free anymore and I don't want to be. And the first thing I must do is clean
my house' (Philippians 2:7).
"Here she picked up the sheet of paper lying on the counterpane.
. 'That's my housecleaning list. You see, when I take Betty (her new baby
girl) home from the hospital with me, our apartment will be her home, not
just mine and Joe's.
a. 'And it isn't fit for her now. Certain things will have to go, for Betty's -
S sake. (And the Lord's.) And I've got to houseclean my heart and my mind.
I'm not just myself. I'm Betty's mother. And that means I need God. I can't
do my job without Him. Won't you pray for Betty and me and Joe, and for
e our new home?'
e "And I saw in her all the mothers of today, mothers in tin apartments
and on lonely farms. Mothers in great houses and in suburban cottages ...
meeting the age old challenge: that of bringing their children to the love and
knowledge of God Jesus Christ.
"And I seemed to see our Savior with His arms full of children of far-
d away Judea, saying to that mother and to all the mothers, the old invitation
so much needed in these times: (Matthew 19:13-15) 'Let the little children
t come...

I believe this generation of young people has courage enough to face
the challenging future. I believe they are anxious to preserve the best of our
d heritage.
I believe that Christ has come to call us home. Let us be faithful on our
journey.
a The shepherds were said to have left, glorifying and praising God for
all they had seen and heard, as it had been told them.
y How wonderful the thought that our God, being in three persons, sent
His Son to be born fully man and fully God, and that His Son Jesus was
k willing to be the way that God called His sinful elect back to Himself.
Jesus knew His birth meant His life would be an example of godly liv-
s ing, but He also knew His death and resurrection would be a redeeming act
that calls broken sinners home.
May you and your family not only answer Christ's call to come to Him
this year, but glorify and praise God for all you have seen and heard Him
do in your life.

President Of The Christophers


GOD WAS HIS CO-PILOT
One by one, we're losing the heroes of World War II.
Tom Brokaw had it right when he called all the men and women who
went off to fight that war "The G'-atest Generation." They did it for the
right reasons and were willing to everything they had. Many did
just that. Every last one of them deir-. -to be called a hero.
The ones I'm talking about here3rinose who pulled off incredible per-
gpnal exploits, made the headlines, wrote the books that thrilled a nation.
And energized a nation, too, enough to sell the war bonds and call forth the
extra homefront efforts that helped make the final victory possible.
: When you read their stories today too often, their obituaries one
remarkable thing they have in common is an unshakable acknowledgment
df their faith in God.
', I noticed that again last month when I read of the death of Robert L.
Scott Jr., one of the most celebrated fliers to emerge during the war and the
author of a notable wartime bestseller, "God Is My Co-Pilot." The obituary
it The New York Times included a photograph of a young and rugged-look-
iig Scott, grinning from the open cockpit of a P-40 that was decorated with
miniature "rising sun" decals, one for each Japanese plane he had shot
down. It was almost impossible to believe that that young man, so trim and
handsome and full of life, was 97 at the time of his death.
: Scott, an Army Air Force colonel at the time who went on to become a
lifigadier general, was stationed in Asis and received the Silver Star for
helping to evacuate thousands of Allied troops and refugees. He also flew
many missions with the famed "Flying Tigers" of Gen. Claire L. Chennault,
experiences described in detail in "God Is My Co-Pilot."
The book developed following Col. Scott's well-publicized speaking
tour for defense workers in 1943; the Scribner Company asked for a mem-
oir and the colonel obliged. According to the Times obituary, the book's title
.Scott had returned to his base in Kunming, China, for medical treatment
ifter his plane was hit by' the Japanese, wounding him and heavily damag-
trig the aircraft. He'was still able to drop his bombs and fire off his ammu-
hition all while flying solo. Thetbook takes up the story:
S I heard the old doctor say, 'No, son, you're not up there alone. Not
with all the things you came through. You have the greatest co-pilot in the
world, even if there is just room for one in that fighter ship. No, you're not
alone"
The doctor's words led to a moment of transformation for Scott. On
hearing them, he said, "blazing lights" spelled out "God is my Co-Pilot" as
jf in a vision.
Thus was born a book and eventually a movie and one of the
imfost enduring phrases to emerge from the war.
SScott and his generation, the men and women who won World War II,,
were truly unique. They lived in an age of certainty that was guided by a
rock-solid faith. The nation and those of us who live on in fact, the entire
free world will forever be in their debt.

A Daily Thought

THURSDAY
Though the Lord God is'
supreme, He takes dare of those:
who are humble, but He stays
away from the proud. Lqrd, even
when I have trouble all around
me, You will keep me live. Lord,
You do everything for me. Lord,
Your love continues forever.
Psalm 138: 6-7a, 8a (NCV)

Christ's reign will and must con-'
tinue until every enemy has
been conquered. The last
enemy of all to be destroyed is
death itself.
I Corinthians 15:25-26 (PME)

SATURDAY
(God says,) "Don't be afraid. I
redeemed you. I've called you
by name. You're:-mine. When
you're in over your head, I'll be
there with you. When you're in
rough waters, you will not go
down. When you're between a
rock and a hard place, it won't
be a dead end... Because I am
God, your personal God.
Isaiah 43: lb-3a (ME)

SUNDAY
.. .because, if you confess with
your lips that Jesus is Lord, and
believe in your heart that God
raised Him from the dead, you
will be saved. For man believes
with his heart and so is justified,
and he confesses with his lips
and so is saved.
Romans 10:9-10 (RSV)


MONDAY
The heart is deceitful above all'
things and beyond cure. Who
can understand it? I, the Lord,
search the heart and examine
the mind, to reward a man
according to his conduct,
according to what his deeds
deserve ... Heal me, 0 Lord,,
and I will be healed; save me
and I will be saved, for You are
the one I praise.
Jeremiah 17:9-10,14 (NIV),

TUESDAY
For God is love; and His love
was disclosed to us in this, that
He sent -His only Son into the'
world to bring us life (eternal).
The love I speak of is not our
lovestor God, but the love He
showed to us in sending His'"
Son as the remedy for the defile-
ment of our sins. If God thus
loved us, dear friends, we in turn
are bound to love one another.
I John 4:9-11 (NEB)
WEDNESDAY
The man who knows right from
wrong and has good judgment
and common sense is happier
than the man who is immensely
rich. For such wisdom is far
more valuable than ,precious
jewels .. -

Rise & Shine

By Ted Simonson-

THE RARE GIFT OF FAITHFULNESS
Here is a list of five saints mentioned in the New Testament. Very little
is said about them but each one is referred to in the same way. What is it
that they have in common?
Tychicus,, Epaphras, Onesimus, Antipas and Silvanus.
Give up? Each man is described as "faithful." Each is described as pos-
sessing #7 of the spiritual gifts listed in Galatians 5. It is rare..
In fact, Proverbs 20:6 states "Most men will proclaim everyone his owni
goodness, but a faithful man, who can find?"
This is not a spectacular gift. It is easy to overlook or mistake for some-
thing else. For example, faithfulness is not going on doggedly. It is not
"plugging away." It is not "hanging in there." It is choosing over and .
over again to go on believing and obeying God.
Daniel Webster, a 19th century lawyer and statesman, was courting his
wife-to-be, Grace Fletcher. As he held skeins of silk thread for her, he said,
"Grace, we've been engaged in untying knots. Let's see if we can tie a knot
which will not untie for a lifetime." They stopped right then and tied a ran-.
dom silk knot that would be almost impossible to untie. subsequently, the
two were married.
Years later after both had left this world for a better one, their children
found a little box marked, "Precious Documents." Among the contents were
letters of courtship and a tiny silk knot one that had never been untied.
This is faithfulness.
The 23rd Psalm is a biography of someone practicing faithfulness.
Sometimes there are green pastures and still waters. At other times it is
walking through the valley of the shadow of death. But whatever it is, there,,
is the assurance that the Shepherd is present. Therefore, my soul is restored;
and my cup runs over.
When I think of faithfulness, I think of our pastor and his family. Better
than any sermon Chuck Wall has preached is the witness of their lives lived
out among us. They have had heavy trials and heartaches like the rest of us
- but they have chosen to go on with God and so have become an exam-
ple.. .
The underlying reason for faithfulness is that God Himself is faithful.
.the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you and keep you from
evil." (II Thess. 3:3)
This is vital because of what faithfulness leads to. ".. knowing this,
that the trying of your faith worketh patience. Patience must finish its work
so tb'p4 6aou a mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1:3) ,
God whits us-o appropriate all of His mercies so that we lack nothing!
And faithfulness is the road that takes-us there! :

Of The Herald-Advocate
With a trio of non-district games
this week, the Hardee Wildcats
wind up the regular season and
head to Class 4A, District 10 play-
offs next week.
A pair of district losses last week
dropped the Cats from the top slot
in the district seedings. Instead, the
Cats ended up with a tie for second
place, and will be seeded third on a
match of the season's games.
This puts the Wildcats in a
Tuesday game at 7:30 against the
Braden River Pirates. Other teams
in the playoffs are the top seed and
host Avon Park Red Devils,
Sebring Blue Streaks, DeSoto
Bulldogs, Palmetto Tigers and
Sarasota Booker Tornadoes.
This week's games were home
Monday for a visit from Lemon
Bay, the Senior Night home game
on Wednesday vs. Auburndale and
the season finale tonight
(Thursday) at Fort Meade.
Seniors in their last week of reg-
ular season action are catcher Justin
Altman, first sacker Robbie Abbott,
pitcher James Basey, outfielder
Brad Gilliard and all-around utility
man Jarrett Benavides.

Softball Girls End Season


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Lady Wildcats fin-
ished up 2006 softball at district
play Monday night.
It finished what coach Donnie
Carver termed "a disappointing
season. Until we have nine girls
that have heart and want to play, it
will be same old, same old," said
- Carver of the winless season.
"The varsity is not the same as
'Little League'. In fact, we had
some girls who wanted, to stay
home last night and play on those
teams. We have the same core of
girls who do a great job and the rest
struggle," the coach said.
Five girls will be playing sum-
mer ball. All five tried out and
made area teams and their families
have made the commitment to get


them to practices and games.
Freshman Krystin Robertson and
eighth grader Chelsey Steedley will
play with the Sebring-based 16-
and-under squad, while junior
Jamie Buckley, soph Amber
Steedley and freshman Emily
Adams all qualified for the Polk
18-and-under team.
In last week's final games of the
season, the girls showed some
improvement in losing 5-0 to
Lakeland Christian rather than the
11-1 loss earlier in the season.
"We should have won 1-0. They
scored all their runs on infield
errors. We left Danielle Hines on
third base when a runner going to
'first was tagged out and interfer-
ence was called, also resulting in
Hines being called out," described
Carver.


The Lady Vikings scored four
runs in a bat-around second inning
with three errors adding to just two
hits to give them the only runs they
would need. They added another
score in the fourth.
Hardee lost the fifth-inning
opportunity when Hines and
Buckley both singled. The Vikings,
with a 16-2 record, were led by
freshman pitcher Melissa Murphy,
who struck out nine Lady Cat bat-
ters, effectively stopping any scor-
ing efforts.
Last Thursday night was a varsi-
ty-only home Senior Night game,
when the lone senior, shortstop

enough to laugh;. all had a great
time.

,Wauchula City Manager Rick Giroux spoke to the Wauchula Lions Club April 13 about various city
Ioects underway. He said over 400 street lights within the city limits have been replaced since
be 2004 hurricanes. The city's sewer plant is at its one million gallon a day capacity, and the city
uncil plans to expand the capacity to three million gpd but that would not be completed until
ate 2008 or early 2009. Giroux hopes the state will allow the city to go to 1.2 mgd within 60 days
Without a plant expansion in order to provide sewer service to several planned subdivisions. He
iid the city may increase the impact fee for tap, sewer and water hookup from the current $1,750
j $5,500 or higher. From left are Bill McBride, whose wife Alex Sink is running for state chief
nancial officer this fall; Rick Giroux; guest Pattie Detwiler; and club president Doug Knight. The
Pons Club meets every Thursday noon at the VFW building at 322 Hanchey Road in Wauchula.
It is a most mortifying reflection for a man to consider what he
#as done, compared to what he might have done.

Dixie Youth On The Move


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The six teams in the 2006 Dixie
Youth league had games last week.
Formerly known as the Majors,
the players gave it their best in the
half dozen games they played.
By week's end, the Nicholson
Supply Co. Reds and Joe L. Davis
Braves were the only two unbeaten
teams, both sporting 3-0 records.
The All Creatures Animal Hospital
Yankees were at 2-1. Trailing the
leading trio were the Chapman
Fruit Co. Athletics (A's), Country-
side Growers Devil Rays and
Florida Fuel Mets.
The Reds won Monday's only
game 9-3 over the D-Rays.
Leadoff batter Dalton Hewitt
smacked three hits and put a trio of
tallies on the board for the Reds.
Justin Bromley and Jeremy Rowe
each chipped in with a pair of
scores and Malik Tatis added one
more with a two-run homer cap-
ping the four-run first inning.
Others playing for the. Reds were
Kolton Mills, John Chason, Reed
Woods, Trenton Moon, Elijah

ford, Jacob Bolin and Chase Revell
each had twin trips to home plate
for the Braves. Adding solo trips
were Vince Grimsley, Luke Palmer,
Kramer Royal, Kyle Schrank,
Andrew Lee Will Bennett and
Casey Bryant.
For the Mets, there were solo tal-
lies by Dalton Reas, Kris Johnson,
Dallas Juarez, Dustin Goodwyn,
Wyatt Maddox and Eric Klein, who
homered for the final Mets score of
the game. Others playing for the
Mets are Garrett Albritton, William

Meanwhile, on Field 1, the

Dixie Boys On Slow Track


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2006 Dixie Youth season
made slow progress last week.
The Florida Fertilizer Braves had
their first game of the season, a vic-
tory. The BJD Red Sox played a
pair of games and lost them both,
dropping to 1-2. And, the Torrey
Oaks Rangers downed the Sox to
move to 1-1 overall. Results of the
Braves' Thursday game at Fort
Meade against NorthEast Winter
Haven were unavailable at press
time.
Last Monday's game for the
Dixie Youth, formerly called the
Juniors division, had the Braves
beating the Red Sox 8-5.
Carson Davis and Dalton Farr
each doubled for the Braves.
Conner Davis pitched the win and
also had three hits and put three tal-
lies on the board. Dustin Ratliff,
Farr and Carson Davis were twin-
score batters. Tyler Cobb added a
solo score. Others playing for the
Braves were Justin Fones, Joe
Adams, Grayson Lambert, Kendall


Mink, Brandon Holton, Caleb Reas
and Wade Staton.
For the Red Sox, Nick Battles
scored three of the team's five runs.
Jacob Mayer and Dillon Rabon "*
rounded the bases to put the other :
tallies on the board. Others playing
for the Sox were Marcus Chancey,
Taylor Barlow, Clay Choate,
Andrew Foreman, Kyle Ward, Tre
Anderson, Trenton Muntz, Thomas ;
Flores and Jacob Anderson..
The Friday evening game
between the Rangers and Red Sox
also ended with a three-run differ-
ence, with the Rangers winning 11-
8.
Danny Rodriguez, Kody Porter,
Lincoln Saunders and Kalan Royal
scored twice apiece for the
Rangers. Tyler Alden, Michael
Forrester and Dustin Maddox
chipped in with solo scores. Others
playing were Josh Rickett, Kyle
Bodeck and Danson Hensley.
Mayer and Barlow each rounded
the bases twice for the Red Sox.
Chancey, Flores and. Foreman
added a run each.


.M Inside Out

WAL-MART EXPRESS LANE BLUES
Although I hate Wal-Mart, that arch enemy of mom-and-pop grocers
everywhere, I think its employees are swell. They're gals and guys just like
me trying to scratch out a living in an era of runaway inflation, rising crime,
pollution, pornography, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, wars, rumors of
wars, and lunatic world leaders grasping for nuclear weapons like Roseanne
grabbing for that last bite of buttered popcorn.
Most Wal-Mart employees are honest, affable and willing to run all the
way across the store to help a disgruntled customer find an item that, usu-
ally, was right under his nose. Occasionally, of course, you encounter an
employee having a bad day who growls a little bit, but if that never hap-
pened I'd think Wal-Mart employed robots instead of human beings and
I assure you it would if it could.
In a way, it has, what with those self-checkout machines that talk to
you with such fake sweetness I'd like to squeeze rough lemon juice down
the slick throats of every one of them. Does anyone really believe Wal-Mart
installed those money-grubbing monsters for customer convenience?
Machines work for free. They never take coffee breaks or go to lunch, never
take vacations, or ask for benefits.
One would think Wal-Mart, one of the largest most successful corpo-
raAdfis in thevwbrld, could afford to hire enough help so that customers-
wouldn't have to wait in outlandishly long lines.
A few weeks ago I wobbled (why do I always get the buggy with the
loose wheel?) into the express lane with only three buggies ahead of me. A
big sign above the register said: "10 Item Maximum." I only had six items
and, believing I was actually going to get in and out in 20 minutes, a big
grin on my face.
I looked at my watch. The time was 4:20 p.m. My grin began to fade
as time crept by and the line did not move. Not an inch. I stepped out of
line, looked around the two buggies in front of me and saw to my horror
that the buggy parked before the register was packed tight and piled high.
An employee walked by. I stopped her and said, "I thought this was the
express lane, ma'am. Ten-item max?"
She smiled apologetically. "I'm so sorry, sir. It is. But if a customer
doesn't see the sign, or can't read it, we can't turn them away. We're
ordered not to."
My eyes darted around for a shorter line. There wasn't one, not even
among self- checkouts machines. I heard air hiss through my teeth and I bit
back words so unchristian I almost choked on them.
My watch now said 4:40 and still the line hadn't moved. I could see the
girl working the register nervously sorting newspaper coupons, food
stamps and WIC coupons, which are used for special products for pregnant
or breast-feeding women. The manager was called to help.
The woman with the buggy spoke no English because another employ-
ee, a young Spanish girl, was called over to interpret. The buggy woman
was forced to ration her attention between the interpreter, the register girl,
the manager and four small children, all under school age, who ran about
wildly, screaming and grabbing things off shelves.
When finally I escaped into the great outdoors, it was 5:20. I had wast-
ed one hour at Wal-Mart, waiting in the express lane to purchase six items
I could have lived without.
That's just one Wal-Mart horror story. I have a jumbo shopping bag full
of them.
I bet you have a few, too. Send your favorite to me at the e-mail address
below or to P.O. Box 746, Zolfo Springs, FL 33890. The most horrible, sub-
ject to editing, will be published in this space at an unspecified date.

Track Champions


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee boys track and field
team claimed the boys Class 2A-
District 11 championship last week.
Lisnell Youyoute, Jimmy
Cimeus, Andrea Parkinson,
Postenea Louisjeune and Gloria
Solis each added a pair of first-
place finishes in the meet at North
Port last week.
The top four in each event also
advance, including all the girls
which won the 4x100 relay.
Coaches Don Trew, Rod Smith
and Rob Beattie have their work
cut out in preparing those who will
go on to the Region 3 meet at
Berkeley Prep in Tampa today
(Thursday).
Behind the 172 points of Hardee
boys in the District 11 meet, were
Lithia Newsome with 144, Lemon
Bay with 111.50, Clearwater
Central with 73 and DeSoto with
65.50. But they will also face
strong opposition from Avon Park,
which won the District 10 meet,
followed closely by Frostproof and
Haines City. In the District 12
meet, Immokalee won, followed
closely by Golden Gate and Fort
Myers Dunbar, a trio which will
challenge Hardee in regionals.
Hardee girls, who placed third in
districts with 124 points, behind
Lemon Bay with 138.50 and
Newsome with 128, will also have
keen competition today. Avon Park
,nipped Frostproof 127 "to 125 to
take the District 10 title and Golden
;Gate, Immokalee and Fort Myers
Bishop Verot were the top three in
District 12.
Trew described "a fine effort" by
:girls distance runners Mandy
Cornelius, Maricela Galvan and
sore Vanessa Hollon battling shin
splints in keeping the pressure on
eventual winner Lemon Bay.
"Under pressure the Manta Rays
number 3 runner had to be helped
off the track after 4 of 8 laps. The

meter relay, 46 hundredths ahead of
the nearest of seven competitors,
Clearwater Central Catholic.
Louisjeune won the long jump
and triple jump and placed second
in the 200 meter dash. Behind her
in the triple jump was Parkinson in
second place, followed by
Christina Jena in seventh and
Nancy Ramirez in 12th. In the long
jump, Santresa Harris was 10th,
Prine 13th and Daisy Escoto 17th.
Escoto and Ruiz were far behind
her in the 200 meter.
Solis won both the shot put and
discus. In the.shot, she won with a
toss of 27 feet 5 and one-half inch-
es, ahead of Lemon Bay's Michelle
Rhoden at 27-5. Lady Cats Cynthia

In Texas a man got tired
thieves breaking into his store, s
he rigged up a 12-gauge shotgun
to shoot anyone who entered
after hours.
One morning he came to woi
and forgot to dismantle the tra
He opened the door and the g
went off. As he fell to the floor, I
cried, "I've shot myself!"
What a picture of sin. It's fir
delightful, but it becomes destruc
tive.
The Living Bible says, "Th
wicked man is doomed by his ow
sins; they are ropes that cat(
and hold him."
Don't get caught, by your ow
sins. Instead, yield to the Lol
who'll forgive you and give you

Weightlifting Ends


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2006 Hardee High
weightlifting season closed at sec-
tional competition last week.
First-year coach Hacam Shweil
had hoped some of his lifters could
advance to the state meet, but none
were able to.
"We had some boys who could
have made an at large bid but
missed by their totals. Ricky
Wiggins missed by 10 pounds and
Daniel Moore missed by 15
pounds.
"'But a lot of the guys had per-
sonal best at every lift, even
Haceem Shweil, who is still bat-
tling a wrist injury. Jordan Grims-
ley at the 169 class has a 425 total,
which is very competitive and
gives him a great shot at making
state next year," commented the
coach.
"David Newcomb is one of my
more promising athletes. He has a
215-pound clean and jerk at the


139-pound weight class and a 200-
pound bench," added Shweil.
"I am very excited about next
year and can't wait to see what we
can do."
Wiggins had a 255 in the bench
and 255 in the clean and jerk in the
183-pound weight class, tying
Jesse Soloman of Haines City, who,
however, had a 280 in the bench
press.
Moore combined for a 585-total
in the 238-pound class, with a 300
in the bench and 225 in the clean
and jerk.
Competition at the sectional meet
in Fort Meade included lifters from
Mulberry, DeSoto, Sarasota
Cardinal Mooney, Haines City,
Englewood Lemon Bay, Lake
Placid, Sebring, Avon Park, Bartow
and Frostproof.
Others competing for Hardee this
season were Jose Salvador, Steven
Naranjo, Eric Cobb, Ismael
Mancillas, Jackson Mosley, Jesus
Jaimes and Cameron Durham.

:"This is a good group of kids,
very coachable and willing to work.


They have a willingness to do what
you ask. I'm happy with their sea-
son," said Sharp, who along with
Daniel Barnett, works on preparing
these players for varsity competi-
tion.
The young Cats posted victories
last week over both DeSoto and
Palmetto.

Cops For Christ
By Barry L. Schnable
Hardee County Sheriff's Office Sergeant


ALL COPS ARE CHRISTIANS RIGHT?
I have had this question or the statement,"I thought all cops were
Christians" posed to me several times. My response is always the same,
"No, but God's working on it". That is the simple truth. I explain that cops
are people just like you; we have the same likes, dislikes, problems, tri-
umphs, struggles, temptations, etc.... We are no different than anyone else
with the exception of our profession.
Those of us that go to church, and talk about Christ say that we are
Christians, but what is a Christian? Acts 11:26 "and when he found him, he
brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with
the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called
Christians first at Antioch."
Disciples were called Christians by non-Christians referring to them as
the people who followed Christ and it also believed that it meant, in the
beginning, to be a derogatory term ridiculing those who followed Jesus.
The best definition I found is, "a follower of Christ, a spiritual brother or
sister to others and one who strives to be like Christ".
I am a cop and I have not always been a Christian by this definition. I
am a Christian now and I do everything to convince other officers to also
be Christians. I tell them about two specific Scriptures that give insight into
officers being called by God to their profession. The first is Matthew 5:9
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God" and the
second is Romans 13:1-2 "Everyone must submit himself to the governing
authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.
The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he
who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has institut-
ed, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." Very power-,
ful words, even greater responsibility for those of us charged with enforc-
ing the laws of this great nation which was established by God.
But, unfortunately, the answer is still the same. No, all cops' are not
Christians. Before you become too judgmental, ask yourself (based on the
definition above) are you a Christian? Many people claim to be a
Christian, act like they are, talk like they are but don't walk like they are.
You know the old saying, "they can talk the talk-but they can not walk the
walk". So don't judge officers too quickly when you find out that they are
all not Christians in the mainstream definition or even in your own defini-
tion of a Christian because they are only human, not superhuman.
However, do thank them for leaving their families, their spouses and
their children everyday to literally put their lives on the line to protect
yours. When you feel like being judgmental ask yourself do you wear
body armor to work, do you strap on a gun, do you run towards trouble or
shots being fired or do you run away? --Would you do our job? No? Welf
then you understand some of what it takes to be a cop. Pray for us, Christiaii
or non-Christian alike. We need your support and encouragement. We are
always there for you when you call for help, can you be there for us?
God bless and keep safe!

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
