Guests are expected. Will their
visits be brief?
Will it be Alberto, Beryl or Chris,
or some of their friends?
The 2006 hurricane season
begins today (Thursday). Before it
ends Nov. 30, any one of the 16
named storms expected this year
could stop or pass by Hardee'.
County.
"Conditions this year are very
similar to last year. They predict 16
named storms, with 7 to 9 turning
into hurricanes and 3 to 5 becoming
major hurricanes," said Emergency
Management director Rich Shepard
as he returned from the annual hur-
ricane conference where he was, a
speaker on two panels!
'The key words are 'culture of
preparedness,' encouraging every-
one to develop a personal safety
plan and get their disaster-kits out
and ready at, the first notice of hur-
ricane action. Everyone should
have an out-of-town or out-of-state
contact who knows where they


have gone away from the storm's
impact. You- wouldn't believe the
number of calls from relatives try-
ing to locate people," commented
Shepard.
With grant funds, he has estab-
lished a separate "information hot-
line" at the Emergency Operations
Center (EOC), '404 West Orange
St., Wauchula. It will be activated
in an weather event and updated
frequently with information on
what is happening, where emer-
gency .food and water can be
Obtained and other information.
The number is 767-0102.
"It's important not; to have a ho-
hum attitude because we were
spared last year. As we know, it
only takes one bad storm to devas-
tate an area," Shepard continued.
The emergency center has been
revamped to include a sound-proof
call center to minimize confusion

U.S. 17 Pedestrian Dies


Over Memorial Weekend


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 27-year-old pedestrian lost his
life Sunday evening.
According .to Florida Highway
Patrol reports, Nicholas Torres, of
1930 Stansfield Road, Wauchula,
was walking in the left lane along
U.S. 17 in the area of Florida
Avenue when he was hit.
The report says it was dark and
Mary Ann Medrano, 37, of Zolfo
Springs, did not see the pedestrian
until her vehicle's right front struck
Shim. He was wearing dark clothing


and was in an unlighted area.
It was 9:25 p.m.
Medrano's 1998 Ford sustained
$3,000 in damages. She was wear-
ing a seat belt and received only
minor injuries.
Torres died at the scene. His
body was transported to the med-
ical examiner's office in Winter
Haven.
He becomes the fifth fatality on
Hardee County roads in 2006.
According to the investigating
trooper, Cpl.' E.J. Finneran, no
charges were filed in the accident.


t's Election Time As Well!


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Although qualifying is over a
month away, at least half ,of six
local officials know they face
opposition.
That's because most candidates
prefer to qualify by the petition
method rather than pay qualifying
fees. Petitions are due in the
Supervisor of Elections office by
noon June 19, giving ample time to
validate all signatures before the
official qualifying period noon July
17 to noon July 21.
In both the Hardee County
Commission and Hardee County


School Board slots, a petition must
have a minimum of 124 signatures
of registered voters. Within 10 days
of qualifying, a candidate has to
appoint a candidate treasurer and
open a campaign account.
Only two commission seats are
up for grabs this year. For anyone
not qualifying by the petition
method, the qualifying fee is six
percent of the annual salary of
'$28,984, or $1,739.04. So far, nei-
ther incumbent faces opposition.
One open slot is District 2,
presently held by' Commission
Chairman Clifton N. "Nick"
Timmerman. It includes all the ter-


ritory of north and west Wauchula
all the way to SR 62 and west from
there to the Manatee County line.
'Another open slot is District 4,
presently held by Commission
Vice-Chairman Bobby Ray Smith.
It includes the area east of U.S. 17
and south of SR 64.
Commissioners Minor Bryant
(District 1), Gordon Norris
(District 3) and Dale Johnson
(District 5) remain in office until
2008.
This year, there are four School
Board slots open. Again, for those
not qualifying by petition, the qual-

MOTEL FIRE


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
Hardee County Fire-Rescue was called to a blaze at an abandoned commercial structure on
Saturday afternoon at 4:39. According to Lt. Larry Factor, firefighters arrived at the Wauchula
Motel at 2311 U.S. 17 N. to find its northeast corner fully Involved in flames. The fire was spread-
ing to the rest of the complex which has remained unused since it was badly damaged in
Hurricane Charley and firefighters from Station 1 tackled the north end while Station 2 fought
from the south end to extinguish the fire. About 9,000 gallons of water were used, Factor said.
The Fort Meade Fire Department sent an engine and a tanker, while Polk County EMS responded
with an ambulance because of the hot fire and the heat of the day. Factor added, however, that
no firefighters suffered any Injuries or heat distress. In all, 17 battled the blaze, with 12 from
Hardee, which also brought two engines, two tankers and two dump tanks to the fire. The scene
was cleared at 6:28 p.m. The lieutenant noted the state Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the
cause of the blaze."

radios provide constant updates on

One day a mailman walked up

Seeing a crippled girl on the

"Let me take it to my mommy,'
begged the girl.
"You can't walk," said the
mailman.
"I know," she answered. "But
you can carry me and I can carry
the package to my mother."
So he lifted her up in his arms

And she handed the package

another six-year term and who next month
will begin another six-month stint presiding
in Hardee County and expect nothing less
of the jurist who won the Governor's Peace
At Home Award in 2002.
And there will be peace in his courtroom
as well.
i Defendants whose T-shirts bear question-
able slogans are admonished not to wear
them before him again. Men seated with
their arms around their girlfriends are
Strongly reminded they are not in a movie
theater. Whispers meet with the judge's
raised eyebrow. Lawyers who once milled
bout the courtroom, talking to each other
"nd to their clients, sit silently in a line on
he first row.
They alternately describe Doyel as "strict,"
'nice," "fair-minded," "tough," "meticulous"
and "intelligent."
Doyel himself admits to possessing some-
:hing of a reputation for being a "stickler for
detail" and for being "intolerant of what (he)
perceives as misbehavior."
He would prefer to be thought of as intel-
igent and fair. "I would like to be known as
someone who makes decisions based on the
law, not personal preferences. I follow the
law, I do not make it," he says from his office
on the third floor of the Hardee County
Courthouse. "I reach fair results, and I gen-
uinely care about the people."
The judge then adds, "I do expect people
to obey my rulings once I make them."
Doyel has been making those rulings since
first taking office in January of 1995. In the
fall of 1994, he ran against'a sitting judge,
Joe Young, and prevailed, becoming the first
judicial challenger to do so in the 10th
Judicial Circuit composed of Hardee,
fHighlands and Polk counties.
It was a climax to a career that began in
teaching.
: Doyel, a native of Oklahoma, received his
'bachelor's degree in business administration
in 1967 at the University of Oklahoma.
From there, he went into the military,
becoming a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy
Supply Corps and earning the Navy
Achievement Medal with a Combat V for
service in Vietnam.
Returning to civilian life, Doyel earned his
juris doctorate in 1975, also at the University
of Oklahoma.
Doyel entered into private practice for
three years, but then blegci'taching law as a
professor in' the' University of Mississippi
School of Law. "While teaching law school,
I thought that additional education would be
useful in my teaching career," he says in
explaining his advanced degrees of master of
laws in 1985 and doctor of juridical science
in 1987, both earned at the University of
Wisconsin.
"Some people think I'm an intellectual," he
adds, "but in the academic world I was con-
sidered a .practical person." The judge goes,
on to describe theorists as teachers and prac-
.tical people as doers. I'm a 'thinker and a
doer."
After 'achieving his advanced degrees,
Doyel began teaching at the Mercer
University School of Law, where he stayed'
from 1985 to 1987.
,"The practical side of me didn't fit well
with the goals of academic instruction," he
explains. "I wanted to do, to be a lawyer."
So he did just that.
One of his former students, John Stidham,
vwas practicing in Bartow, and his firm need-
ed another lawyer. That brought Doyel to the
10th Judicial Circuit. After a year in civil




'Operation Gradu

Targets Alcohol


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
With graduation just one day
away, officers with the Wauchula
SPolice Department and the Florida,
Department of Alcoholic Bever-
(ages and Tobacco worked to halt
underage alcohol use during the
annual celebration.
'Operatidn Graduation' was con-
'ducted May 19 at city establish-
ments that sell or serve alcohol.
Two arrests were made.

practice with the firm, he hung out his own
shingle, practicing criminal law.
Doyel became board certified as a criminal
trial lawyer and as a criminal appellate
lawyer, both in 1991, as he drew closer to the
bench.
He says his teaching experience. and his
board certifications led him to a "scholarly
interest in due process, in conducting fair tri-
als." Aspiring to, and winning a seat on, the
bench "was a natural process for me to satis-
fy my interests in both aspects of the law."
Doyel'says being a judge is "both a thinking
and doing job."
If judges have preferences, Doyel's would
be family law, where he has acquired an
exhaustive list of service recognition and
honors, most concerning domestic-violence
work.
"There, I am the decision maker. There is
no jury," he explains. "I can exercise my best
judgment, and from' my interests, that's
rewarding. Even more importantly, what I do
directly affects the well-being of people. I
can'make decisions that make life better for
people, and see that they are carried out."
It's all about helping people, Doyel point
out. "I'm doing things that directly help peo-
ple," he continues. "When they walk out the
door from a hearing, I've done something
that has improved their life, even if they
don't think so."
He finds one of the most distasteful
aspects of the job is paperwork. "Boy, was I
surprised how much paperwork there is
here!" he says specifically of his current
assignment on the bench in Hardee County.
In Polk County, for instance, judges deal
with one division of law at a time, be it crim-
inal, civil, family or juvenile. Here, one cir-
cuit judge must handle all those divisions at
once.
"Sometimes I wish I knew more about par-
ticular areas of the law," Doyel says he finds
as different issues cross his desk each day.
"It's better in a lot of ways, though," he adds.
"There is such a big variety. I change hats
constantly. And that makes it interesting."
Besides, his time of service in Hardee
County is a pleasure. "It's more relaxed
here," the judge notes. "Everyone is not as
intense about turf. The opposing sides seem
to cooperate better.
"Working with the bailiff and clerks here is
just a delight. They. want to please, to do it
right."
He sums it up, "It's refreshing, across the
board."
Doyel, 60, drives here daily from his home
in Winter Haven. His wife, Chelle, is "an
accomplished jazz pianist," he says, and
works as a keyboardist at Disney World and
for weddings.
Daughter Kathryn works with computers
as a project coordinator in North Carolina.
Son Gregg is a sportswriter in Ohio for CBS
Sportsline.

Home includes two cats, a love of sports
developed as an athlete and as a coach, and
a fondness for reading fiction. "When I was
a professor at Ole Miss, one of my students
was John Grisham. I like to say I taught him
everything he knows," the judge says with a
broad grin.
Spare time, when he can find it, also
means hiking, swimming and weight-lifting.
And though daily travel to Hardee County
cuts into that free time, Doyel maintains he
is very pleased to have garnered another six-
month assignment here during the biannual
rotation of judges.

Of The Herald-Advocate
Frederick May,'72, of Gardner
has received an invitation from the
Queen of England to attend the
350th anniversary celebration of
the founding of the Queen's Guard.
May plans to attend the event
which will be held June 12 at
Buckingham Palace in London. He
was in the Grenadier Guards, for 21
years, joining as a drummer boy at
age 16 and becoming a guard at age
17 1/2.
Back then there were about 3,000
in the guard. Members had to be 6-
2 or taller. May is 6-6 and had two
uncles on his mother's side who
were 6-9.
He will fly out of Orlando June 7
non-stop across the "pond" to
Heathrow International Airport and
will stay at the Victory Club for
retired British military.
May grew up at the edge of
Sherwood Forest in England. He
became an excellent archer and
today has archery equipment he
would like to donate to Boy Scouts.
After 21 years with the guard, he
joined "Her magistry's prison ser-
vice" and worked in England for 7
years.
Then his wife and three daugh-
ters moved to California. He had
seven sisters, and four had married
Americans and moved to Califor-
nia. He helped a sister in the swim-
ming pool and spa business.
His wife, Jean, who stood 4-11,
had cousins, in Toronto. They
would join the cousins for summer.
visits to Florida.
Due to having daughters and the
illegal drug climate in California,
May moved his family to Hardee
County. "I felt the schools here
were the best in central Florida."
His wife passed away eight years
ago. His daughters live in England.
May owned and operated a pres-
sure washing business in Florida
for several years and is now retired.
He teaches archery part-time. He
has given motivational talks to pris-
oners at Hardee Correctional

Chief Loses Appeal


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
;Of The Herald-Advocate
- An embattled police chief fight-
ing to retain his job lost his appeal
Tuesday night.
David Scheid, who was fired by
Zolfo Springs: Mayor Mike
Schofield on May 11, took his case
to the Town Council for reconsider-
ation, and lost in a 3-2 vote.
Council members Roger Green and
Roberta Meyer rejected the firing.
George Neel, Minnie McKenzie
and Maggie Belcher affirmed the
mayor's action.
Scheid already was on suspen-
sion without pay, a result of his
arrest by state agents on Jan. 4 on
five felony counts and one misde-
meanor count.
Those charges two counts offi-
cial misconduct and one count each
of grand theft, tampering with a
witness, fabricating evidence and
misdemeanor petit theft remain
pending in Hardee Circuit' Court.
Scheid .is due to appear in court
again on June 20. His trial is set for
'Aug. 14.
Scheid maintains his innocence
on those charges.
But Schofield's decision to termi-
nate Scheid's employment stems
from the results of two investiga-
tions of former police officer
Warren Brittingham, both conduct-
ed by a private investigator from
Polk County who was critical of
Scheid's alleged 'background
checks of the officer, alleging the
work was sloppy and incomplete.
In Tuesday night's hearing, how-
ever, Scheid said he did not con-
duct the background checks
referred to by the private investiga-
tor.
"Why not?" city labor attorney
Rich McCrea asked. "It was not my
job," Scheid responded. "I wasn't
chief." Scheid was first named
"administrator" over the depart-
'ment, while former mayor Marilyn
Aker was "acting" chief. He later
was elevated to the full title of
"chief."
McCrea noted Scheid's name


On The Agenda

HARDEE COUNTY COMMISSION
The Hardee County Commission will hold its regular session today
(Thursday) beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Room 102, Courthouse Annex I,
412 W. Orange St, Wauchula. The following is a synopsis of agenda
topics that may be of public interest Times are approximate except for
advertised public hearings.
Update on Range Cattle Station programs and staff, Dr. John
Arthington, 8:35 a.m.
Report on 4-H county, district and state events, 8:45 a.m.
Letter of credit of $2.9 million for landfill expansion, 9 a.m.
Assistant county manager and planning director job descriptions.


was on the document. Scheid coun-
tered that his signature wasn't, nor
were any dates-or page numbers.
He said he.did not know who pre-
pared that background investiga-
tion into Brittingham, nor who
placed it in the officer's file.
"Just for the record, we kn6w
that we can't link this document to
me," he said.
McCrea referred to the faulty
background check as "the mystery
report," and said he was surprised
Scheid would "disavow any knowl-
edge of it."
But, instead, McCrea focused on
an Officer Certification Application
sent to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement by Scheid, and
bearing his signature.
In it, he "attests" that he has "col-
lected, verified and (has)on. file
documentation" regarding Britting-


ham's fulfillment of state require-
ments to be a police officer.
McCrea hammered on-that point,
but Scheid repeatedly insisted he
attested to the FDLE application
paperwork only, not to a back-
ground investigation into Britting-
ham's employment application with
the town.
In the end, council members
voted to uphold his firing.
"It's nothing I didn't expect," the
former chief said late Tuesday
night following the hearing. "I was
expecting exactly what happened."
Scheid said he has already hired
a labor attorney from Tampa, and
that he plans to sue the town.
"I'm looking forward to getting
things straightened out," he said.
"I'm glad to get it all out there. I'm
tired of people talking and taking
potshots at me."


Nutrition Notes*

GRAINS IN A SALAD BOWL
For an all-American summer salad, combine corn and wild rice, both
native American crops.
SEuropears had never seen corn before settlers came to the New World.
They quickly included it in their diet, and we've been eating it ever since.
Corn is usually thought of as a vegetable, but it is technically a grain.
While it is high in natural sugar, corn is a good source of dietary fiber and
can be a healthful part of a balanced meal.
Wild rice, too, is not what it seems. It isn't rice at all, but a long-grain
marsh grass native to the northern Great Lakes area. For centuries, it has
been hand-harvested by native Americans in canoes. Wild rice is still gath-
ered that way, but there is also a commercial industry in California and the
Midwest.
The most current dietary guidelines put heavy emphasis on eating
whole grains every day. 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.
Refined grains, such as white flour, have their inner- and outer-most
layers, the germ and bran, removed, leaving only the starchy endosperm.
Whole grains are higher in fiber and have 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 set by national dietary guidelines is easy to meet.
The term "whole grain" means that all three parts of the grain kernel
(germ, bran and endosperm) are included. Brown rice is a whole grain, but
white rice is not. Other whole-grain foods include wild rice, corn (includ-
ing popcorn), as well as cereal, bread and pasta products labeled "whole
grain." Other whole grains include corn tortillas and tortilla chips, whole-
wheat (but not "white" or "wheat") tortillas, bulgur (tablouleh) and kasha
(roasted buckwheat).
Whole grains contain substances linked to reduced cancer risk, includ-
ing fiber and hundreds of health-protective phytochemicals, natural sub-
stances.

Reds Top Dixie Youth


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Although dropping from the
ranks of the undefeated, the
Nicholson Supply Co. Reds are the
2006 champions in the Hardee
County Youth Sports Dixie Youth
division.


Formerly called the Majors, the
Dixie Youth, ages 9-12, finished up
play last Friday without the need
for a championship playoff game.
The Reds finished at 14-1, ahead
of the Joe L. Davis Inc. Braves
which beat them last week, but fin-
ished up at 12-3. Behind them are


WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered showers brought significant rain to a few localities but left
only traces in others during the week of May 22 through 28. Several local-
ities reported no measurable rain for the week. Elsewhere, rain totaled from
traces in several areas, to 2.69 inches in Miami. Wild fire danger remained
high, statewide, with at least one significant fire caused by lightning.
Temperatures for the week averaged 1 to 5 degrees above normal. Daytime
highs were in the 80s and 90s while nighttime lows were in the 60s and 70s.
Alachua, Monticello and Tallahassee reported at least one low in the 50s.

FIELD CROPS
Rain over the Panhandle replenished soil moisture with supplies rated
short to adequate. This. allowed some peanut and cotton planting to gain
momentum during the week. However, dry soils prevented some planting
in Gadsden County. Peanut planting was 59 percent finished by the end of
the week, compared with 76 percent planted by this date last year, and the
five-year average of 77 percent completed. Oats harvesting was active in
Washington County as the mowing and baling of ryegrass hay wound
down. Soil moisture supplies over the Peninsula were rated very short to
short. A few surplus spots were reported for Holmes County but surplus.rat-
ings represented less than a half percent, statewide.

VEGETABLES
Tomato harvesting is expected to start around Quincy within the next
few days. Northern growers are combating spotted wilt virus infestations in
some Washington County tomato fields. A shortage of trucks slowed move-
ment of harvested products as increased vegetable harvesting in States to
the north competed for the trucks. Snap bean harvesting slowed over the
central and southern Peninsula with picking nearly completed. Squash har-'
vesting was very active in Washington County. Other vegetables and non
,citrus fruit marketed during the week included cantaloupes, sweet corn,
cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peppers, potatoes, radishes, tomatoes and
watermelons.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, most pasture is in fair to good condition. The cattle
are in good condition. In the northern areas, pasture is mostly very poor
due to prolonged drought. Most of the cattle are in very poor condition, and
haying of livestock in some locations is going on. In the central areas, pas-
ture condition is mostly poor and some is very poor. The condition of the
cattle is mostly poor. In the southwest, pasture condition is poor to fair, and
Sthe cattle condition is mostly fair. Statewide, cattle condition varies from
very poor to good, with most in fair condition.

CITRUS
Temperatures across the citrus belt were summer-like all week. Highs
ranged from 90 degrees in Ft. Pierce to 97 degrees in both Immokalee and
Lake Alfred. The'southern most monitored-station, Immokalee, had the
most rainfall with over an inch, followed by Ona, in the center of the State,
with just over a half an inch. The rest of the State was dry, with no rainfall
being recorded in citrus producing areas. Citrus areas are still well below
average rainfall for the year andmgroves not well irrigated are showing signs
of stress. Valencia estimated harvest continues to run just under five million
boxes weekly, and will continue to be picked heavily into June in order to
reach complete utilization. Activity in the groves has slowed, with some
growers applying copper sprays to control citrus canker, applying nutri-
tional sprays, mowing and removing brush from groves. Grapefruit harvest
is winding down for the season, with less than 50,000 boxes being picked
again last week. Honey tangerine harvest is also coming to an end, being
picked primarily for the fre

Reds slipped past the Yankees 4-2.
Dalton Hewitt homered and sin-
gled to put one run on the board for

and Jeremy Rowe each also had
scored once. Justin-Bromley's two
hits pushed teammates home. A
Reed Woods hit plated Tatis and
Rowe with the winning runs in the

stranded.
For the Yanks, leadoff batter Jake
Altman scored in the first inning
and Tanner Gough added another
run in the sixth. Altman, Jesse

Braves beat the A's 12-2.
Dawson Crawford, walked, dou-
bled and homered to put three runs
on the board for the Braves.
Leadoff batter Justin Knight scored
all three times he got on base. Luke
Palmer chipped in with a pair of
tallies and Jacob Bolin. Will
Bennett and Chase Revell put one
score apiece in the book.
Justin Forrester and Jared
Jernigan each singled and scored in
the first inning for the A's, aided by
a Matthew Grace hit. Dalton
Rabon, Cole Choate, Grace and
Daniel Miller were all stranded.

A Sincere Thank You I


I would like to take this opportunity
to thank the people of Hardee County
for their support during the illness
and home going of my wife, Debbie.
The flowers, cards, food, prayers, and

these, words are insufficient to

appreciation to this community.
My staff has been loyal and faithful
filling in for me, during my extended
absence, and I now look forward to
ministering to the needs of the people
of this community once again.

Look On The Bright Side Bpr
By David Kelly B. J^B



One of my most favorite poems just so happens to be from one of my
favorite poets, Robert Frost, entitled "A Minor Bird."
A Minor Bird
I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.
Robert Frost "

I was reminded of this poem again this spring as I am most every
spring, but usually for a different reason each time. This year a little bird,
most likely a wren or a thrush, has reminded me of this poem.
In the past a.noisy student or a baby screaming in the middle of the
night or maybe a complaining parent or boss might have reminded me that
all voices, no matter how annoying, have the right to speak.
So it wasn't the annoying liberal media, with which I hope not to be
confused, but a simple tiny, beautiful, ingenious little bird. However, it was-
n't the noise or music or even the hint of a song that first caught my atten-
tion, it was the garage door light
In today's modern world, garage doors are equipped with automatic
lights that kick on whenever a sensor is tripped to light up the garage, just
in case a boogie man or alligator or something unwanted may have crept
into your garage in the three seconds that it was just opened.
Or, if you are like me, to help you not to trip over all the stuff you
should have put away, at Christmas or all the stuff your children were given
at Christmas and now have no other place for except the garage.
Whichever it may be, the garage door light was designed to be helpful
to a human, which is the problem: a human wasn't using the light.
My little friend I mentioned before was trying to build a home last
Friday when I was doing some yard work. In just a matter of minutes this
busy bird had built quite the nest inside our garage door light.'
Being the pacifist that I am I was just going tcqleave it alone and teach
my 3- and 4-year-olds about birds and bird nests and the whole bit. About
an hour later; my wife said she thought her car was burning because she
smelled smoke in the garage. So, being the dutiful husband, I checked it
out. No fire, no smoke, no problem.
Only one thing, though, it did smell a little smoky. So I backed the car
out of the garage and the garage door light kicked on, but I could barely see
it for all the branches and leaves and grass that little Mrs. Wren had placed
in this tiny spot. But I could smell the beginning of disaster, so with great

care I took apart the light, grabbed the magnificently crafted nest of a home
and place it in a shrub in our front yard.
Those of you who know me know the story can't end there.
Needless to say, I didn't tell my wife where I put the nest and she was
the one doing some clipping on said bush in the front yard. After a trip to
the side yard, I came to check out her handiwork to see that where I had
placed the nest high in the bush so the bird could find it, hopefully, was now
gone.
In my wife's defense, I don't think the bird would have used that nest
again anyway, even if she had found it.
But I digress. By our outside freezer we have a laundry basket that I
was supposed to take to the give-away store weeks ago. Good thing I did-
n't.
Seriously, within minutes of damaging one nest, Mrs. Wren had
already completed another in the basket. So before we could take a family
vote on what to do, three eggs appeared overnight in the nest.
Now we have designated times in the day when the door must be open
so Mrs. Wren can sit on her eggs.
Of course my 3- and 4-year-olds are not ecstatic at all over the eggs. I
mean, just because every time we leave the house we must see the eggs,
which means Dad must lift us, up high enough to peer into the basket.
Which Dad doesn't mind at all, either, if he was honest.
Well, the other day Dad was curious, so early one morning after he had.
opened the door to get the paper and got some coffee he decided to check
on the eggs after taking out the trash. As I leaned over and stuck my head
within inches of the nest, a huge fluttering sound startled me and made my
heart skip three or four beats.
Mrs. Wren had already come in and was sitting on her eggs. Whew!
Who needs coffee?
So I guess I will not move any more nests or clap from my door to
silence her song, or even wish she would fly away.
I'll just look on the bright side that we have a self-sufficient pet for a
short while this spring. I guess I've learned that sometimes in life God
gives us little moments like this to enjoy His creation and to show us that
sometimes an unwanted visitor becomes a special friend.

Take The Front Pew!
HARDEE LIVING DEADLINE IS THURSDAY AT 5 P.M.


Now we come to the pew month and the end of "An American
Tragedy." Even though I have read the stbry many times over the years, I
really enjoyed bringing it to you, my readers. Again, I urge you to call me
at 773-5764 if you have any comments or suggestions. I don't write much
any more, but I started young andhave enjoyed it for many years.
.Go ahead, -now, and enjoy the denouement of life with Swifty and his
friends. ;

"N4 doubt," said the setter. "but you never know when an elephant
might drop in, and our regulations require that all consumers must be pro-
vided for."
The Irish setter wrote a notice and handed it to Swifty. The notice gave
. him 30 days to comply, or the government would close hi's store until he
complied. The setter bid him good day and departed.
'Then Swifty walked from his office to the storeroom and told Kitty to
look after things. He had to contact the construction company and arrange
with his banket, the friendly squirrel, for another loan. He said he didn't
feel so good, and was going to drop in on his doctor.
Dr. Quack was a gentle duck who seldom ruffled his feathers, and had
been S wifty's doctor for many years. In his quiet manner, he told Swifty he
had an ulcer. Dr. Quack gave him some medicine and advice about taking
things:easy. Swifty wasn't surprised that he had developed an ulcer, with all
the problems the government was giving him. He thanked the doctor and
returned to his store.
:As he walked into the store, Kitty grabbed him, saying, "There is a Ms.
Pekingese in your office waiting for you."
"Who is she?"
"All I know is,she said she was Ms. Pekingese from the Office of Equal
Opportunity."
Swifty entered his office and introduced himself. He asked the caller,
"What can I do for you?"
With her nose in the air to balance her spectacles, she barked, "We at
the Office of Equal Opportunity have learned you don't employ cows. You
produce and sell eggs, which are considered a dairy product. Milk is a
prime dairy product, and so you should be employing cows."
"My gawd, lady, I don't need cows in my business. I can buy my milk
cheaper than I can produce my own," he said, taking a gulp of his ulcer
medicine.
"That is immaterial," Ms. Pekingese informed him. "According to the
population of this area and the number of chickens employed by you, you
should have at least 2.7 cows pn your payroll."
."Just how do you propose that I hire 2.7 cows? What can I do with the
.3 that I do not need?"
"Come, come, Mr. Swifty, be reasonable. Hire three cows. If you hire
less you will be fined $500 a day until you comply."
Ms. Pekingese wrote an order and gave it to Swifty. Then she arose and.
pranced out of the office. She turned her uplifted head toward Kitty, and
spoke to her as she walked through the front door. With her nose in the air
she did not notice the workmen at the front door. They had removed the
stairs and were.building the forms for the ramp. Ms. Pekingese stepped into
space, and tumbled forward, landing on her face.
The next day a Siberian husky came to the store. He introduced him-
self as the attorney for Ms. Pekingese. She was prepared to sue Swifty for
damages and medical bills. After a two-hour conversation, it was agreed
that if Swifty would pay all the medical bills plus $15,000 it would not be
necessary to go to court.
That night'Swifty could not sleep. After tossing for a couple hours he
got out of bed and went to the kitchen. There he poured himself a glass of
milk. He sat at the table sipping the milk and munching a carrot while he
pondered what had happened.
Things had been so good until that Scottish terrier laid the tax program
on him. Then that bulldog, backed by the boxer, organized his employees.
He might have been able to cope with that but that basset hound and dachs-
hund sure raised the roof. That Ms. Pekingese took the cake. Together they
had gotten the best of him. Swifty sat there mulling things over in his mind
untiljgie dawn began to erase the darkness of the kitchen.
When he arrived at his office, the first thing Swifty did was to call that
*Siberian husky. When the attorney answered the phone, Swifty found him-
self saying, "Mr. Husky, yesterday I agreed to pay Ms. Pekingese's medical
bills plus $15,000."
"Yes, that's right. You haven't changed your mind, have you?"
"As a matter of fact, I have," said Swifty.
"What do you mean?" shouted the husky.
"I mean I have changed my mind. You bring the necessary papers over
here,nd I will give you the keys to the place. I might as well, because this
business has already gone to the dogs."

'Nuff said. See you next time. Just always remember God loves you and
you,-arid.He loves m. too....

Rumors vs. Reality:



The Arrival of the



Seacoast National Name


Last Thursday afternoon I tried my luck at some bass fishing with
friends Kellon Durrance and Chris Hanchey. We heard the bass were real-
ly biting good at Lake Childs, just outside of Lake Placid: We had never
been there before so we decided to give it a shot.
We were not exactly sure where the lake was so it took us a little while
to actually find it. We got to the boat ramp, and I was surprised at how clear
the water was. We could see the bottom in five feet of water. After unload-
ing the boat we caught some live bait to fish with.
After catching bait we were off to start fishing. We drove around the
lake until we found a grass point going out into the lake. We pulled up to
anchor and scared off several nice bass along the edge of the grass.
We put on some bait and threw it up against the edge of the grass and
began to wait. After only about five minutes I looked across the lake, and
out of nowhere came a hard rain. We could, see nothing but a solid sheet of
rain. It began to rain so hard we could not even see' the trees on the other
side. It was blowing straight for us, and I knew we were about to get
soaked. There was nothing we could do, so we decided to just get wet and
let it blow over.
The wind began blowing so hard our anchor would not hold, and we
began getting blown across the lake. The waves started crashing into the
side of the boat, occasionally breaking over the sides. We left our baits in
the water drifting behind the boat. During all this weather Kellon caught the
lone bass of the day, which was about 18 inches long. For the first few min-
utes it was refreshing getting soaked by a cool rain, but after an hour it was
starting to get cold. We waited about 30 more minutes without any sign of
the rain letting up so we decided to call it quits.
We loaded up the boat disappointed it had to rain on the only day we
could all coordinate to go fishing, but we had a good time anyways, even if
we did get wet and cold.

A lion's life expectancy is 30 years at the maximum.

Donaldson, Kalan Royal and
Lincoln Saunders stroked doubles.
Saunders, Jonathan Kelly and
Michael Forrester each came

Donaldson each had a pair of hits.
Porter, Danson Hensley and Dustin
Maddox singled and were left on
base. Others playing for the
Rangers this season were Danny
Rodriguez, Kyle Bodeck, Royal,
Kelly and Forrester.
The season finale on Friday was
another close encounter, with the
Braves barely beating the Red Sox
5-4.
Leadoff batter Carson Davis was
the only twin-tally batter for the


Braves. Tyler Cobb had twin hits.
Conner Davis, Mink and Farr each
chipped in with a run. Others play-

Bronson Announces New Measures


For Nursery Owners In Florida


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is announcing
new steps nurseries are taking to
protect water, quality and quantity,
,and create green spaces around the
State, while remaining a competi-
tive industry.
A list of newly developed "Best
Management Practices" will be
released to, growers to use which

recharge areas and create and main-
tain open or "green" spaces, an
important issue in a state dealing
with continued growth.
"The nursery industry must
remain competitive to stay in busi-
ness under increasing pressure to
develop the land," Bronson said.
"This BMP guide will help growers
keep a competitive edge while still
taking into consideration the impor-
tance of maintaining and.improving
water quality and ensuring an effec-
tive and efficient use of existing
water resources, which are in short.

very important issues which must
be addressed."
The Best Management Practices
manual was developed over the past
three years by a dedicated group of
growers, with input from local,
state and federal agencibs'as' well as
Miami-Dade DERM, Dade Farm
Bureau, South Dade Water and
Conservation District, and the
University of Florida/IFAS. The
nursery industry is the single largest
sector in Florida's agricultural
economy.
In addition to addressing water
issues across the state, the BMPs
will also help address concerns' in
south Florida about water quality in
the Everglades by reducing nutri-
ents and pesticides from entering
the Everglades ecosystem'.
The manual was distributed dur-
ing a "Miami-Dade Nursery BMP
Kickoff Event", sponsored by the
Miami-Dade Extension Office on
May 31, 2006. The event was held
at John D. Campbell Ag Center,
18710 SW 288th Street,
Homestead, Florida from noon until
2:00 p.m. A list of speakers address
edvarious topics including water-
shed protection.

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


2 CENTS ABOUT THE DA VINCI CODE
There has been so much in the media about the new movie, "The Da
Vinci Code," that you probably are tempted to just glance over this article
because you are sick of hearing a t,
I would understand.
I'm a little sick of it myself. But. .I the need to stick in my own two
cents about this movie and book that'~ve come out in recent years.
I personally have not seen the movie and have only read bits and pieces
of the book. I have read several articles about the scandals surrounding this
piece of fiction, and understand the story line and have had the story line
explained to me in detail. (I haven't had time to read it but I will soon.)
I understand the historical misrepresentations and inaccuracies that are
mentioned in the book; also the representation of Christ as merely a man,
married to Mary Magdalene, who bore Him a child, making her the bearer
of Christ's blood and therefore the Holy Grail (which is never mentioned in
.the accepted Protestant Bible).
S I understand the ramifications of these facts, if they were true. They
:would prove.the Bible story inaccurate and, therefore, the story of Christ a
Sfallacy and hoax nullifying and voiding our faith as we know it. It is quite a
.task .Dan Brown, the author, has taken upon himself, to bring down
:Christianity as he has been accused of attempting.
: Well, my two cents about this book and movie is that it can be used for
'ill or for good. God has a way of turning what is intended for harm and using
'it for His cause. Take Jesus' execution on the cross, for example; Satan
:.thought he had won while God used it for the redemption of all who would
'"turn to Christ. ,
X:i "The Da Vinci Code" could be used to make us lose faith in God or turn
::our backs on God. I dairesay that only those who are looking for an excuse
.:to turn their back on God will find that cause in "The Da Vinci Code."
TThis book is nowhere near accurate or powerful enough to cause such a dif-
*:ference.
:' I particularly am thankful to the book because it has created a reason


for us to give a defense of the hope that is in us. As 1 Peter 3:15 says, 'be
ready always to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason for the
hope in you, with meekness and fear."
There is nothing wrong with asking questions. Too many of us have
trusted our church organizations too long. We just believe what they believe
instead of believing what the Bible says. Too many of us have trusted in man
to give us the answers to eternal life instead of looking to God in His Holy
Word! Too many of us have been entirely unprepared to answer others. How
many of us will be prepared to answer God?
Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" has created for us an opportunity to
be stronger in our faith, to share our faith, and to live in our faith.
It is easy for us.to become complacent in our belief and stagnant in our
Christian walk. It is righteous to be consumed by the fire of a living God and
His living Word (Heb. 12:29). Let's seize the opportunity! I'm Telling the
Truth.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

A PLEA FOR SENSITIVITY
The danger is not that you or I will rob a bank or sell nuclear secrets to
China. The danger is that we will live insensitively. We will be absorbed in
our own success or failure while all around us and maybe right across the
breakfast table will be people who are lonely, fearful and suffering.
That's what selfishness will do for you. It will harden your heart, nar-
row your field of vision, choke out your compassion until you can live a life
as cruel as a Gestapo agent and yet think yourself a pretty decent chap!
I talked with a man once who told me that his wife of many years just
packed her suitcases one day and walked out without a word. He said, "I
had no idea that she was unhappy!" This is a classic case of living insensi-
tively. When a man has no idea of what is bothering his wife until she walks
out, that man has been pretty unobservant. Or maybe I should say that his
attention and intelligence have been focused somewhere else, probably on
his job.
The Bible helps us to keep focused on God. "Thou shalt love the Lord
they God with all thy heart, soul, mind and strength." (Mark 12:30). When
we are focused on God, He is able to direct us, to warn us, to encourage us
and especially to make us aware of the people around us.
The sensitive man is not a mystic lost in reverie. He is a good neighbor
who looks after others. He is especially aware of people in need and who
are suffering. He will take time to find out what he can do to help.

Lake Dale

News:
By Mary Cole

Hello, Lake Dale residents and
readers. I don't know about you, but
I've been sweating out! I mean
literally! And I'm not talking about
sweating to the oldies, either.
It seems to me that Mother
Nature has left her mark on our
yard. The leaves and limbs have
multiplied. Raking and picking up
leaves isn't as much fun as it used
to be. Yuck! Now sweating, I've
been told, is good for you. In mod-
eration, of course! So I've decided
to watch my health. Raking a little
here and raking a little there, stop-
ping for a long leisurely break,
while enjoying the beautiful world
we live in. I hope you have a chance
to enjoy your little corner of our
beautiful world this week.

Robert Taylor celebrated the big
3-0 this last week. Happy birthday
and many more, Robert!

Vacation Bible School will be
June 4-8 at Lake Dale Baptist
Church. Times are 6 to 8:30 p.m.
This will be my first time teaching
Bible school. I've had so much fun
preparing for it. I feel confident that
the children will have a great time
studying God's Word.

Nora DeVane spent last Saturday
with her sister, Cathy, and brother,
Newell, attending the 90th birthday
of her aunt, Thelma Campbell of
Ocala. She visited with family and
friends that she hasn't seen in some
time. Among those were her
cousins Larry and Shirley Ingram.
Larry and Shirley have been serv-
ing as missionaries in China for
many years. Everyone enjoyed vis-
iting and spending time the birthday
girl. At 90 years old, she still enjoys
good health and good spirits.

Wilma Torres is in Sarasota
Memorial Hospital in critical condi-
tion. Continue to keep her and the
family in your thoughts and
prayers.

Angie Hines and son Cole, Nora
DeVane, Sylvia Torres and sons
Mark, Tony, Michael and Richard
and I enjoyed a visit to Hardee
Lakes Park. It was nice to have a
placq to take the children and spend
the day resting. The alligators still
give me great pause, but the peace-
fulness of the lakes overrides any
'fears I have, plus I have a good
strong eye.

FROM
THE
SOWER'
Michael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia

A mother said to her daughter,
"I wonder if a nice girl would be
holding Tom's hand?"
"Mom," she answered, "a nice
girl has to."
Too many say, "Live it up! If you
love me, make love with me." But
that is not love, it's lust. And lust
leads to disgust.
Others say, "Live it up! Plea-
sure-soak it up. Time-use it up.
Youth-live it up." But you'll have
to live it down, and you can't live it
over.
So open your heart to the Lord.
Then you'll be alive with love
that's sweet and satisfying, and
you'll enjoy an exciting life here
with eternal life hereafter.

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


JOHN WHO?
To play "word association," I say "John who?" and you go "John ...
Wayne."
Right?
No, I'm not psychic. Most everybody knows of John Wayne.
If you are a rock-and-roll connoisseur, you maybe said "John Lennon."
If you're into literature, you might have thought of John Steinbeck. Or
John Cheever or John Updike.
But how many of you, even you with a literary bent, went: "John
O'Hara"?
John who?
O'Hara. The one who was born in 1905 and grew up in Pottsville, Pa.
He immortalized the little town in his fiction as "Gibbsville," and wrote the
collection of connected stories called "Pal Joey" that was made into a
Broadway musical and then a movie starring Frank Sinatra. The one who
wrote "Butterfield 8," whose movie version won Elizabeth Taylor a Best
Actress Oscar; who wrote "Appointment in Samarra," "A Rage to Live,"
"From the Terrace" and many other novels, and over 400 published short
stories.
The John O'Hara who did not win the Nobel Prize, whose pal John
Steinbeck got it instead, inspiring O'Hara to fire off a letter of congratula-
tions, ending with: "I can think of only one other author I'd rather see get
it." He was not referring to his other pals Ernest Hemingway or F. Scott
Fitzgerald, either.
John O'Hara never made to Yale, and obsessed and fretted over not
doing so for the rest of his life. (Having been kicked out of several expen-
sive boarding schools, he was lucky to finally graduate high school.)
Patrick O'Hara, his father, a highly respected, tee-totaling Pottsville,
Pa., surgeon, was mortified by his eldest son's drinking and debauchery,
which began at age 12 or 13, but used his influence to get him a job with
The Pottsville Journal, from which he was fired for showing up drunk,
hung-over, or not showing up at all.
For the next year young John worked any job he could find, from the
coal mines to the train yards and everything in between. He was fired'from
them all for showing up drunk, hung-over, or not showing up at all.
When his father died and debt and the Great Depression gobbled up the
family's assets, O'Hara high-tailed it for New York, where he lived in cheap
flophouses and supported his legendary boozing and womanizing by work-
ing for, and being fired from, many newspapers and magazines. He was
fired from each for showing up drunk, hung-over, or not showing up at all.
For the next 12 years he was always broke, always borrowing. Also he
was always drunk or hung-over. He was a mean drunk. He started bar
fights. Standing six feet one and weighing almost 200 pounds and having
learned to box as a boy, he won most fights even when he was almost too
drunk to walk. Women adored him. Except those he took a swing at.
He drank daily at such speakeasies as the Stork Club, "21," and the
Algonquin Round Table even when it meant living in cramped $2 a night
rooms with no running water.
By 1930 he managed to stay sober long enough to finish his first novel,
"Appointment in Samarra," which was an instant success and hailed by crit-
ics as a brilliant first novel. It was probably the best long fiction he ever
wrote, though some of his short stories like "How Can I Tell You?" and
"Alone" are small masterpieces. His friend Dorothy Parker told -him, "If
Hemingway reads your story, 'Alone,' he will cut his throat from envy."
Parker also helped O'Hara find his title for his first novel, pointing out
a passage in W. Somerset Maugham's play, "Sheppie," which "tells of the
encounter in the Baghdad marketplace between a merchant's servant and
the female Death. The servant, jostled by Death and startled by a shock of
recognition on her face, flees, riding his master's horse north to the putative
safety of Samarra. What a coincidence! Death had been surprised to see that
very servant in Baghdad, 'for I had an appointment with him tonight in
Samarra.'"
"There's my title," said O'Hara. "Appointment in Samarra."
After the publication and success of "Appointment in Samarra," the
output of O'Hara's work was phenomenal, if uneven. The wonder is, in lieu
of his riotous lifestyle, not that so many say "John who?" but that he man-
aged to write anything at all.

Strong coffee, much strong coffee, is what awakens me. Coffee
gives me warmth, waking, an unusual force and a pain that is not
without very great pleasure.

Deserved


Dear Editor,
Today I had the honor of attend-
ing Hardee County's Memorial
Day service. At this service, I was
struck by how few of our fellow
citizens showed up to pay their
respects to our war dead.
This was a short service, requir-
ing no more than 30 minutes of our
time. Thirty minutes to honor these
men who gave their lives defending
our country.
I imagined what others must be
doing, what others must have found
to be more important than giving
up a half hour of their time to pay
tribute to the men who paid the ulti-
mate price for the freedoms we
enjoy today.
My husband, who was not born
here, was struck by how many men
from this small county had lost
their lives in battle. I was not,
because this county has always
been known for its patriotism and
love of this country and God. It
does not surprise me that we have a
disproportionate amount of fallen
soldiers, for every time America
has called, our men and women
have answered.
After the service, my husband
was conversing with two other
Vietnam veterans, both of whom
Served at the same time that he did.


Day Service

More Attendance


My husband expressed that he was
disappointed that so few showed up
for the service:
The other veteran said, "They
don't care. They just don't care."
My husband remarked that he still
cared and if he was the only one
who cared, he would go on caring,
for he still hears the voices of the
buddies he lost in Vietnam, good
men who served bravely.


That conversation made me very.
sad and also ashamed. Ashamed
that so few would show up for
something so important; important
because men and women are still
fighting and dying for this country
and the very least the citizens of
this county could do is to show 'up
for these services, the ones on
Memorial Day and Veterans' Day
and show their respect for these
service people.
Nothing could be more impor-
tant. Nothing!
God Bless America!

What have we gotten ourselves
into?"
Local Cattlemen Sign Contract:
The long-dreamed-of new fair
building and rodeo arena are in the
process of becoming a reality and
are expected to be completed in
time for this year's fair in the fall.
They will be built on 13.5 acres of
land near the Agri-Civic Center
donated by Mr. and Mrs. Doyle
Carlton Jr.
John Stannage, local contractor,
signed a contract with the Hardee
County Cattlemen's Association
Friday afternoon to construct two
buildings at a cost of about
$300,000 with a completion date of
Oct. 1. This will allow six weeks
before the annual Hardee County
Fair opens on, Nov. 16. The Hardee
County Cattlemen's Association is
now sponsor of the fair, and it


decided to set the date back one
week because the Future Farmers of
America who go to Denver for
national fat stock show and meat
judging contest are not here to show
their own animals.

School Board Nearing Show-
down: Within the next two weeks,
the School Board may be asked' to'
take action against the contractor of
the new high school in order to get
the project completed. Ever since
the February completion date,
Superintendent John Terrell has
threatened to ask the board to assess
liquidated damages against Morrick
Construction Co. to get the new
school finished.
Now Terrell says he may ask the
board to consider taking over the
project from the contractor and fin-
ishing it themselves with the money
that has been withheld. "It is a
touchy situation," he told the board
Monday. "We are not getting the
things finished we think should be
finished," he said.

Cattlemen's Arena off Altman Road
Friday evening for graduation.

10 scholars. Then guidance coun,
,selors Peggy Sadler, Ron Beldiii

Returning Hope To



Rural Afghanistan


By LOCHRANE A. GARY
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Part 1: After 34 hours of continuous
airline travel from Fort Myers, I was in no
mood to be left standing by myself outside
the terminal in Kabul, Afghanistan. But
Sphere I was with my five heavy duffel bags
full of veterinary tools and livestock sup-
plies and not a soul in sight.
The armored personnel carrier directly in
front of the terminal doors was manned by
five soldiers, one of whom was an
American. When I asked directions to the
parking lot, he pointed,with his rifle to a
group of vehicles about 500 meters away. It
took me three trips to haul my luggage
through the sand, but there was my contact,
Carson Coleman, chief of party for Land O'
Lakes Afghanistan, waving his arms above
his head. He had just learned of new securi-
ty precautions which forbade any vehicular
traffic within 500 yards of the terminal, and
he had no opportunity to warn me ahead of
my arrival.
After a three-hour security briefing and
warm welcome, I was taken to a guesthouse
to relax before my assignment began early
the next morning. The guesthouse was very
modest by U.S. standards. I was the only
American staying there at the time. This
was done to maintain a low profile. I would

be picked up at a different time by a.differ-
ent driver in a different vehicle, and
returned by a different route at a different
time on each day of my 31-day assignment.
For the next month I would be privileged
to serve, as a livestock consultant to Land
O' Lakes International Division on a
USAID grant entitled "Dairy Industry
Revitalization in Afghanistan." This was
my ninth trip to the area but my first trip
into Afghanistan. Land O' Lakes personnel
had proven to be totally reliable and trust-
worthy on three previous trips to Azerbaijan
and once to South Africa. I was well pre-
pared, felt reasonably secure, and was
excited to begin work.

Scope Of Work
My responsibilities would include train-
ing four veterinarians (two husband/wife
teams) and nine female extension workers.
The veterinarians were to be trained in field
testing for brucellosis and tuberculosis,
both of which are zoonotic diseases trans-
missible to humans. Additionally, we
screened cattle for inastitis using the
California Mastitis Test, synchronized
estrus in cows and heifers for artificial
insemination, and semen tested bulls in
conjunction with Breeding Soundness
Exams. Training was provided in fecal


exams of cattle and small ruminants and
identification of larvae.
The four veterinarians were exceptional
students, eager to learn and put the training
to practical use. All they needed was
enough encouragement to develop the need-
ed confidence to put the training into prac-
tice. We did this by conducting several days
of intense practice at a private undisclosed
location out of sight of the villages where


we would test and breed the cattle.
By doing this, we all felt comfortable
and worked well as a team when entering a
village. We usually had 75-100 observers
surrounding us in each village. Some were
cattle owners, some were skeptical onlook-
ers and, of course, lots of children. We even
attracted the local shura, or local governing
council, and in one instance an imam, or

The Wauchula Kiwaniis Club donated these and other gifts for the women who care for the fami-
ly cattle. Though extremely pleased with the tools, the women are unaccustomed to having their
pictures taken, and their uneasiness shows here. Among the useful items are surgical tools, trim-
ming and dehorning equipment and feeding bottles.

When Eddie Cantor was
young man, he was in a hurry to
hit the top. But his grandmother
cautioned, "Don't go so fast, sor',
or you'll miss the scenery."
One night, years later, after
making another hit, he received a
telegram from his wife. Their
fourth daughter had been born.
Then he remembered his
grandmother's words, "You'll miss
the scenery."
"How much I had missed," he
said. "Ever since that moment of
truth, I've made it a point to pause
and enjoy the scenery."
Enjoy the scenery, and don't
forget the next world while living in
this one.
The Bible says, "Be careful how
you live. Make good use of every
opportunity you have."

Everyone loves a wedding!
/ Flowers, music, beautiful gowns -

everything is perfect for the
special occasion. When
the newly married
couple leaves the church
they can choose the path
S their journey together
will take-their love can
be an "eternal
springtime".
For, when love comes
Sto the altar, it is full of
hope... and faith...and
promise. If love returns
to the altar week after
week, it will discover
God's unceasing renewal
of those sacred vows.
But it isn't quite so
simple as praying
together and staying together. As
Proverbs 3:3 says, "Let love and
faithfulness never leave you; bind
them around your neck, write
them on the tablet of your heart"
Marriage is a couple's unending
quest for every spiritual insight
That will enable them to
understand... to appreciate... to
Scherish... each other and God!

AFGHANISTAN
Continued From 1C
Muslim priest.
In Afghanistan it falls to the women of
the family to work with the cattle. Prior to
my arrival, nine women had been selected
out of 24 villages to be trained as extension
workers. They were required to be literate
and were chosen for being hard working
and of excellent character and reputation.
Some were married and some were still
maidens. Their husbands and fathers had to
be convinced of the worthiness of the pro-
gram, and all subject matter and materials
were carefully scrutinized. The local shura
in every village also had to place its bless-
ing on the program before any instruction
could be conducted. These nine women are
currently serving as "trainers," teaching
other female "dairy farmers."
Afghan women are not allowed to go
outside the family compound, so all their
interactions with project women extension
agents occur in their homes. Gaining the
trust of the women dairy farmers and their
families is developing over time. Afghans
do not allow their women to even interact
with outside women (women from another
family) unless it is approved by the men in
the family. It is noteworthy that all project
data is collected by women extension
agents and all of the project participants are
women.
It is extremely difficult to convey to a
Westerner how carefully protected the
'Afghan women are in the rural village set-
ting. Even after the Taliban were ousted by
American military forces in 2001, women
still do nbt venture outside the four walls of
their home compound unescorted or with-
out wearing the burqa, or head-to-toe cov-
ering. One of the female veterinarians, her-
self an Afghani, shared with me that it had
taken her over a full year to gain the trust


of the village elders in order to even enter
the village.

Farmer's Field Day.
The most exciting single event which
took place during my stay was the Farmer's
Field Day hosted by the Land O'Lakes sub-
agreement partner, Afghan Reconstruction
Council. The event included animal judging
and the awarding of prizes to the first five
places in each class. Farmers were awarded
prizes for the best rooster, ewe, ram, dairy
cow, bull and ox. It was my privilege to
serve as one of the four judges for this
event.
This was a wonderful day for everyone
in the village, as they all seemed to enjoy
seeing the animals paraded in front of the
judges. It was clear from the group's
response that they especially enjoyed the
clapping and laughter when the prizes were
awarded. Several very important advisors to
the Minister of Agriculture attended the
event as well as some very influential local
officials. It was clear to all that this village
had not experienced this much joy and
heartfelt celebration for many years.
-The success of this field day proved to
me that this type of program could be a
success in other project villages as well. It
is important for the reader to recognize that
Afghanistan is recovering from 23 years of
war. Laughter and smiles do not come easi-
ly.
Lockie Gary is the director of the Hardee
County Extension Service. He makes fre-
quent trips to Central Asia, where he con-
ducts humanitarian and livestock assistance
projects. Many of the livestock tools and
veterinary supplies used on this trip were
donated by'the Hardee County Kiwanis
Club. See Part 2 next week to learn about
the religion and culture ofAfghans. For
instance, Gary will tell readers to imagine
a city offive million without a single traffic
light!

classes.


The military presence remains strong in Afghanistan, as do the remnants of war. This vehicle car-
ries workers who sweep mine fields. Lockie Gary notes that on occasion one sees vehicles with
red cloths tied to them like flags. They represent the Mujahadine, who fought against the Taliban,
and freedom fighters who died. They are considered sacred, Gary said.

\This is known as a fat-tailed sheep. It is a local breed of sheep, very meaty and very well-adapt-

"Pattycakes" are placed under the round lid on this stove and are used as a fuel for cooking and
heating. A ready supply is stacked floor to ceiling. Manure collected from the fields is also used,
along with straw, to form bricks to build houses.


Extension Director Lockie Gary's accommodations while in Afghanistan. Gary explained that
because he was a male outsider, he was not permitted to sleep within the family compound,
where there are women. He slept with the livestock, in a cattle stall. His bed frame hangs on the
wall. At night, he covered its bark rope with hides and blankets.

A Daily Thought

THURSDAY
Where is the god who can com-
pare with You, 0 God, wiping
the slate clean of quilt, turning a
_ blind eye, a deaf ear to the past
sins of Your purged and pre-
cious people? You don't nurse
Your anger and don't stay angry
long, for mercy is Your specialty.
That's what You love most. And
compassion is on its way to us.
You'll stamp out our wrongdo-
ing. You'll sink our sins to the
bottom of the ocean.
Micah 7:18-19 (ME)

FRIDAY
Surely you know that you are
- God's temple, where the spirit
of God dwells. Anyone who
destroys God's temple will him-
self be destroyed by God,
because the temple of God is
holy, and you are that temple.
I Corinthians 3:16 (NEB)

SATURDAY
Lord, You are kind and forgiving,
and have great love for those
who call to You. Lord, hear my
prayer, and listen when I ask for
mercy. I call to You in times of
trouble, -because You will
answer me.
Psalm 86:5-7 (NCV)


SUNDAY
Above everything else, be sure
that you have a real deep love
for one another, remembering
how love can- "cover a multitude
of sins." Be hospitable to one
another without secretly wishing
you didn't have to be! Serye one
another with the partictlarj gifts
God has given each one of you.
I Peter 3:8-10a (PME)
MONDAY
David sang, "The Lord is my
rock, my fortress and my deliv-
erer, my God is my rock, in
whom I take refuge, my shield
and the horn of my salvation. He
is my stronghold, my refuge and
my Savior."
II Samuel 22:2-3 (NIV)

TUESDAY
If you then, who are evil, know
how to give good gifts to your
children, how much more will
your Father who is in heaven
give good things to those who
ask Him!'
Matthew 7:11 (RSV)

WEDNESDAY "
You shall give due honor and
respect to the elderly, in the fear
of God because I am
Jehovah your God., .

First Baptist Dominates Tourney


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula First Baptist swept
through the Men's Church League
post-season tournament.
The Baptists won a pair of games
en route to the tourney title
snatched from St. Michael's
Catholic Church 28-11 in the
Tuesday night finale, a clash of the
top seeds.
The tournament opened on
Monday with two games on each
field.
On Field 3, First Christian out-
lasted Bowling Green Baptist 14-
11.
A Randy Benton homer and dou-
bles by Dusty Massey, James Blum
and Josh Albritton highlighted the
First Christian win. Albritton was
the only three-hit batter. John
Scheel; Alan Tubbs, Blum and
leadoff batter Eddie each circled
the bases twice. Massey, Joseph
Johnston, Chris Knight, Reed
Benton and Randy Benton and
Albritton each came home once.
For Bowling Green, Lewis
Martin homer twice, a grand slam
in the six-run first inning and a twin
tally shot in the seventh. Wally
Helms came around to cross home
three times, Martin and Jeremy
Goodwyn added two scores apiece
and Austin Helms, Bryan Cook,
Hank Butler, Ian Trott, Paul
Roberts and Michael Allison added
a run each.
Meanwhile, on Field 4, Christian
Heritage won the Zolfo Springs
battle with a 31-6 victory over St.
Alfonso's Chapel.
Willie Dickerson homered,
Scotty Whitener and Eric Russell
each tripled and Richard
Cummings, Harold. Smith and
Dickerson each doubled for
Heritage. Cummings, Dickerson
and Russell circled the bases four
times apiece. Jared Tisko, Whitener
and Harold Smith were triple-tally
batters. Tony Smith, Donald
Kersey, Wayne Parrish, Trent
Skinner and Johnny Gonzales each
crossed home plate twice.
For St. Alfonso, Isauro
Figueroa's double was the only
long-ball hit. Sam Rivera came
around' to score twice. Sergio
Zamora, Alex, Samuel and Mike
chipped in with solo scores. Eddie
was stranded twice and Ivan
Figueroa and Jose Gomez were
stranded.
In the Field 4 late game, St.
Michael's grabbed an 11-7 win
over Heritage.
For St. Michael's, Ray Rivas
tripled and Mike Carte both tripled


and doubled. Rigo Briones socked
a double to bring three teammates
home. Roy Rodriguez also dou-
bled. Thomas Trevino, Carte and
Ray Rivas each came across home
p, late twice. Ruben Rivas, John
Roberson, Robert Navarro, David
Navarro and Briones added solo
tallies.
Tony Smith had a pair of hits and
three RBIs to pace Heritage. Tisko
came around to score three times,
Whitener added twin scores and
Harold Smith and Russell added a
run each.
The Field 3 nightcap was brief as
First Baptist leapt past First
Christian 23-1.
Mark McGee and Daniel Barnett
each homered for the Baptists.
Michael Kelly tripled and McGee,
Brian Alexy and Jay Belflower
doubled once while Efran Schrader
doubled twice. Schrader, McGee,
Alexy and Barnett were triple-score
batters, Gerry Lindsey, Kellon
Durrance and Dale Carlton had
twin tallies and Todd Rodgers,
Belflower, Steve Johnson, Bob
Norman and Jerry Albritton came
home once each.
A Blum solo homer was the only
tally for First Christian. Hits by
Reed Benton, Kevin Rickett, Tubbs


and Eddie went for naught as they
were stranded.
That brought First Baptist and St.
Michael's to the championship
game on Tuesday evening, where
the Baptists decisively downed the
Catholics 28-11 with a 17-run first
inning sending them off and run-
ning.
Rodgers homered twice and
Lindsey and Belflower added solo
homers. McGee tripled. Alexy dou-
bled three times and Durrance
twice. Barnett,. Durrance and
Rodgers crossed home plate four
times each. McGee and Lindsey
had triple scores and Belflower and
Kelly had twin tallies, Norman,
Johnson, Albritton, Carlton and
Schrader added solo trips around
the bases.
For St. Michael's, the R.ivas
brothers, Ruben and Ray, each
homered. Ray picked up thre&RBIs
on his shot, while Ruben's was a
solo homer. Calvin Brutus and'
Roberson were three-hit batters.
Ray Rivas, Roberson and David
Navarro circled the bases twice
apiece and. Ruben Rivas, Calvin
Brutus, Rodrigiuez, Briones and
Robert Navarro came home once
each, with a Rodger Brutus helping
out in the scoring.

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
The Crime Stoppers program is designed to protect the iden-
tity of the caller. WE DO NOT WANT YOUR NAME, JUST YOUR
INFORMATION. When you report a tip using the Crime
Stoppers toll free number, you will be assigned a special iden-
tifier code.
Once your information has been received, the Crime
Stoppers staff notifies the appropriate law enforcement
agency. If your information leads to an arrest or the recovery of
stolen property, you may become eligible for a cash reward.
The Crime Stoppers Board of Directors makes the final deci-
sion on the reward amount.
Because your anonymity is guaranteed, it is very important
for you to retain the assigned identifier code in order to be able
to collect the cash reward. You will be given instruction on how
to collect the money.


PROCEDURES FOR CALLING IN A TIP
To anonymously report information for an unsolved case call toll free
1-800-226-TIPS (8477) ahf report your informatoin to the Crime Stoppers
staff member.
You will receive a special identifier code. This code is your.only link to
the Crime StopperS.
You will be asked to check back with Crime Stoppers and give your
code to find out if your information led to the arrest or the recovery of
stolen property.

WHY DO WE NEED CRIME STOPPERS
CRIME STOPPERS is based on the principle "Someone other than the
criminal has information that can solve a crime."
CRIME STOPPERS was created to combat the three major problems
faced by Law Enforcement in generating that information:
Fear of REPRISAL
Reluctance to get INVOLVED.
An attitude of APATHY.
CRIME STOPPERS resolves these problems by offering anonymity to
people, who provide information about crimes. Paying rewards whent the
information supplied leads to a Felony arrest or a Felony Warrantissued.
Your information can help solve a crime. It could be something you've
seen, heard, or found. It may be a name, a physical


description, or a license number. CRIME STOPPERS
is'truly a community undertaking, with tthe flow of
information between the public, and the police, vital to
its success. You can pass along details of local crimi-
nal activity without ever revealing your identity. And in
doing so contribute towards a safer living environ-
ment.


WHO BENEFITS
The Community Citizens are involved. Crimes are
solved. Stolen Property is recovered. Narcotics are
confiscated. Criminals are placed behind bars.


DISCLAIMER
As of Monday, May 29, the fugitives featured in this
section were assumed uncaptured as verified by var-
ious law enforcement databases. Crime Stoppers and

ment at the time of publication.
