For The Herald-Advocate
The annual back-to-school tax
holiday begins Saturday.
' The sales tax exemption is effec-
tive from 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July
22, through midnight Sunday, July
30.
? Florida law provides that during
this time sales tax will not be col-
lected on the sale of books, cloth-
ing, footwear and certain acces-
sories having a selling price of $50
pr less and on school supplies that
cost less than $10.
i Customers can feel free to buy as
mtach as they want, as long as the
items do not exceed the $50 per
,lbthing item or $10 per school

supply item.
The list of eligible items is quite
broad, and some items will still
have the normal sales tax imposed
regardless of price. Rental of eligi-
ble items does not qualify for the
exemption.
Some articles that are tax exempt
are unique, such as belt buckles,
barrettes and bobby pins, hair bows
and ponytail holders, purses and
wallets, bibs and baby clothes,
backpacks and fanny packs, hel-
mets, leotards and hosiery, rain-
coats/ponchos, sleepware and


robes, and swim suits and trunks.
Others are bowling, cleated or
spiked shoes, uniforms, corsets and
girdles, costumes, graduation caps
and gowns, lab coats, martial arts
attire, braces and other supports
and tuxedos purchased, not rented.
Belts for weightlifting, hardhats,
toupees and wigs, and umbrellas
are not on the approved list.
The tax exemption does not
apply to items sold within a theme
park, entertainment complex, pub-
lic lodging establishment or airport.
Articles normally sold together,


(a pair of shoes; gift sets; buy one,
get one free) cannot be sold as indi-
vidual items to lower the price to
meet dollar limits.
When customers use a store
coupon that lowers the sale price,
then the item becomes tax exempt,
but the same does not apply to
manufacturer's coupons or rebates.
The state publication spells out
what each exemption means.
"Clothing" means any article of
apparel, including footwear (with
the exclusion of skis, swim fins,
roller blades and skates) intended


to be worn on or about the human
body. Clothing does not include
watches, jewelry, umbrellas or
sporting equipment.
The term "book" applies to a set
of printed sheets bound together
and published in a volume, such as
instruction manuals, children's
books and music and textbooks.
Newspapers, magazines, other peri-
odicals and audio books do not
meet that criteria.
"School supplies" means pens,
pencils, erasers, crayons, note-
books and paper, legal pads, com-


position books, poster paper, scis-
sors, cellophane tape, glue, rulers,
computer disks, protractors, com-
passes and calculators. It does not
include highlighters or markers,
staplers and staples, or poster
board, computer paper or construc-
tion paper.
For complete lists of eligible and
ineligible items, check the Internet
at www.myfl6rida.com/dor. The
nearest state Department of Reve-
nue service center is in Lakeland
(phone 863-499-2260).
The sales tax holiday comes at
the end of summer and before
school starts ( Aug. 9), making it
the perfect time to buy your school
supplies.

Instead, defense attorney
Jackson Flyte told Circuit Judge
Robert L. Doyel that he"and his
client had reached a plea agreement
with the prosecution, and wanted to
enter a change of plea.
Roberts pleaded guilty on the
spot.
As Roberts took a pen to sign the
paperwork in front of him, the
judge asked, "Mr. Roberts, do you
need some time to read that form?"

Town Council members now have
taken the first step in hiring a man-

Town voters on June 27 did away
with the old strong-mayor system
by a more than 2-to-1 margin. In
special session Monday night,
council members approved an
advertisement to get a town manag-

The ad seeks what it terms a "city

$50,000 a year. It adds the word
"negotiable," however, after that
amount.
It will run in The Herald-

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Former Wauchula resident Jayne Jaudon Ferrer of Greenville, S.C., has
just published her fourth book, "She of the Rib: Women Unwrapped," a col-
lection of poetry of women. The book is dedicated to Carlynne Smith,
Kristy Knight Cox and Cheryl Moye Bishop.
Jayne is the daughter of the late H.L. and Lila Jaudon of Wauchula.
H.L. owned the Western Auto here, and Lila owned Lila's Sewing Center.
Jayne is a 1974 graduate of Hardee High School. Her brother Roger
Jaudon is a 1956 HHS graduate, owned Jaudon's Stores for Homes in
Wauchula and lives in Nashville, Tenn. where he has been in the country
music business.
Roger has a special friend in Dot Pearson of Avon Park.
The third Jaudon sibling, Vera, a 1965 HHS graduate, is married to
Doug Stanfield, formerly of Wauchula.
Jayne's son John Ferrer, a 2002 graduate of Wade Hampton High
School in Greenville, recently fulfilled a boyhood dream of making his own
movie.
Several friends helped make the independent film, a comedy entitled
"Grownups" which is about four children who pledge never to grow up.
Three of them as adults, upon learning the fourth has broken their pact
by getting'married and going to law school, try to bring him down to'their
. level. .
John, a graduate of the Fine Arts Center, wrote the skit as a way to talk
himself into dropping out of the North Carolina School of the Arts.
He brought a $4,000 digital camera and spent $1,000 on props, cos-
tumes and transportation costs for location shooting. That consumed the
$5,000 he had left over from his college fund. The movie was shot in
Ashville and Greenville.
John has worked as a Web designer for Practical Business Systems, a
professional Web site development company in Greenville owned by is dad
(Jayne's husband), Jose Ferrer.
John and three friends earlier this year moved to Los Angeles, Calif.,
to try to sell the film and look for financial backers for future film projects.
John's uncle Roger Jaudon a few months ago mailed me a fine news-
paper article about John's film. The article was published in the Jan. 22,
2006, issue of The Greenville News. It was written by Kathy Spencer-
Mention.
Roger is remembered as quite a pistol growing up in Wauchula.
The Jaudon family has been an important part of Wauchula's history.
Jimmy Hanchey, owner of Hanchey's Carpets, used to work at
Jaudon's Stores for Homes, where Kemen's Auto Parts is now located.
Lila's Sewing Center was adjacent on the south. Hanchey also used to work
at the local radio station and J.W. Earnest & Company Department Store.
Professional wrestling returns to Wauchula the weekend after this one.
See details in an ad in this week's issue. The wrestling matches are co-spon-
sored by radio station WZZS, which this fall will broadcast all the Hardee
Wildcat football games.





Do you have an extra-large heart?
S If so, come see this extra-large English Bulldog mix.
He might be extra big, but he's also extra nice. He is
solid white with brown patches on his ears
and a docked tail.


"No, I don't," Roberts responded
without hesitation. "I'm ready to
go," he said firmly. Then he paused
before adding, "I'm ready to get out
of here."
With that, Doyel sentenced
Roberts in accordance with the
terms of the plea agreement worked
out between Flyte and Assistant
State Attorney Gary R. Ellis.
The judge imposed three years in
state prison for the contraband
charge, noting the new term would
run "consecutive to the four counts
you recently were sentenced on."
Total now: 15 years.
Because of the lengthy sentence,
Doyel waived the monies normally

It requires a bachelor's degree
and a minimum of five years of
management experience, or "an
equivalent combination" of those
requirements. Preference will be
given to candidates with education
and experience in public adminis-
tration, business or a related field, it
states.
Further, the ad seeks candidates
with skills in "consensus-building,"
giant procurement, growth man-
agement, labor relations and fiscal


due for court costs, fines and court-
appointed attorney fees.
Lastly, the judge allowed
Roberts credit for the time he spent
in the county jail since his March
29, 2005, arrest on this fifth charge.
Court records show thaPtthe
introduction of contraband into a
correctional facility charge came as
sheriffs deputies were taking
Roberts back to the jail following a
court appearance on the drug
charges.
Before he boarded the sheriffs
transport van, someone in a passing
vehicle threw someth'ing.-toward
Roberts. He picked it up and
stuffed it into his pants.
It was a pack of cigarettes.
Cigarettes are not permitted in
the county jail. The contraband
charge was then added to those
Roberts already faced.

It may be small and rural, but the
Wauchula Municipal Airport pro-

Approval of the revised dress
code for Hardee Junior High.
School has been delayed.
At its meeting last week, the
'Board split on making a decision
about the dress code. Four mem-
bers voted to table the discussion
for clarifications which will be
brought back to a meeting on July
31. Board member Jan Platt sug-
gested approving the student hand-
book with intent to revise some
portions of it.
Most of the dress code questions
centered around the requirement to
wear a belt with pants, shorts or a
skirt. Board member Tanya Royal
initiated the discussion by asking
junior high assistant principals
Doug Herron and Beverly Cor-
nelius is she was appropriately
dressed with an ankle-length skirt,
pull-over blouse which reached her
waist and a sweater.
Both said she was out of compli-
ance of the dress code because her
blouse was not tucked in and she
was not wearing an undershirt or
camisole tucked in. The; revised

dress code says "Undershirts for
girls and boys must be tucked in
pants and secured with a belt. Shirts
and blouses must be long enough
that the midriff is not showing if the
arms are lifted. Students should
wear their shirts tucked in their
pants with a belt securely fastened
about the waist.
The dress code and other issues
in the handbook were reviewed by
a faculty committee of all grade
levels and experience, said Herron.
Dennis Jones, superintendent of
schools, said after more than a half
hour's discussion that no handbook
could be written for all possible sit-
uations. "At some point common
sense and professional judgment
must come into play."
Although the handbook provides
for a phone call to parents to bring
a clothes change, lunch-time deten-
tion or other penalties, the assistant
principals said the intent was to
keep students in class. "We were
not insensitive when these discus-
sions came up. During the 8-8:25
homeroom, the teacher will eyeball
students. Those not in compliance
could be provided with a zip-tie
belt or other assistance on the first
occasion. Those with a habitual
problem will face consequences,"
said both assistant principals.
When Jones suggested some
statement of administrative discre-
tion, board attorney Gavin O'Brien
said there were constitutional
issues in that phrasing and the
courts would not look favorably on
the word discretion. He agreed that
using a common sense approach
was a better way to say it.
Person in the audience suggest-
ed that the more petite girls did not
have the waistline to support a belt
but could wear elastic waist pants
to avoid a baggy look that could be
unsafe or inappropriate. Royal said
that might discriminate against
boys and it would have to be writ-
ten carefully.
The Board asked that the hand-
book be reviewed and certain areas
be revised and brought back to the
July 31 meeting, since the sched-
uled July 27 meeting has been
cancelled. A presentation set for
July 27 on the future improvements
for Bowling Green Elementary will
be rescheduled.
O'Brien said the burden of proof
on compliance rests with the stu-
dents. "If they are questioned, it is
the students' responsibility to show
they are in compliance."
Another area, of the handbook
clarified was. that: students may
bring cell phones to school but
camera phones are prohibited. Cell


phones must be turned off during
school hours and be kept out of
sight in a backpack, but could be
used after school to contact a parent
if needed.

In other action, theBoard:
heard Jones report that the
new K-8 school would open on
time. "A lot of folks have been
-'working hard to make sure it's a
showpiece. There's a lot of thanks
to a lot of employees. The end of a
four-year process is in view.
Teachers will be allowed on cam-
pus on Monday (July 17)," said
Jones.
He said the normal opening day
program for all county staff would
be on Aug. 1 at the K-8 auditorium
and would last about an hour. The
Chamber of Commerce is provid-
ing juice and doughnuts at 8 a.m.
There will be open house/meet

Toni Jennings will visit Hilltop

' 75 YEARS AGO
n' Wauchula Ice & Canning Con-
r pany Has Started Operations: On
L' last Thursday the Wauchula Ice and
SCanning Co., a new independent ice
" manufacturing company, began
operating here. The plant turned out
its first ice on that date, and since
has been operating continuously,
making daily deliveries of the
frozen product.
T.W. Lawton, president of the
company, stated the plant is turning
out about eight tons daily and finds
a good demand for its product, with
indications that soon it will be turn-
ing out 15 to 18 tons daily. The
Plant is located south of town on the
site of the old crate mill.
'Considerable new machinery has
Been installed and the building
remodeled and repaired to take care
of the business. Two trucks will be
operating and ice will be delivered
daily.

S Wauchula Creamery Is Busy
Filling Silos: The week the
,Wauchula Creamery Co., local
dairy concern, is busy filling its
" large silo with corn. H.B. Rainey,
owner, stated he is cutting about 40
Acres of corn this week and has
some of the finest silage he has ever
q had. He has more than 100 acres of
corn, velvet beans and citrons to
provide pasturage for his herd of
cows in the winter.
C.A. White, manager of the
creamery, announces pasteurizing
equipment is being installed this
week and beginning next Monday,
July 20, pasteurized milk and cream
b will be made available to the public.
The company will continue to han-
dle raw milk for those who prefer it.

Florida; University Offers
Scholairhips: Two scholarships to
the University of Florida are avail-
able to boys of Hardee County and
this senatorial district, according to
a letter to Sup. John B. Rooney
from State Sup. W.S. Cawthon.
SThe requirements for eligibility
will be the same as they have been
before. The applicant must be a res-
ident' of the county or district from
which he is applying, and he must
be a graduate of a senior high
school accredited by the Florida
'State Board of Education. Nb per-
son wiohas gra i~ fr gegu-
lar four-year college course may
hold on of these scholarships.

50 YEARS AGO
Resthaven Given $500 Donation:
Under the will of the late Mrs.
Bertella A. Atkins, Resthaven was
this week the recipient of a check
for $500 from Mrs. Marthanna
Conner. executrix of the Atkins
estate. The'board of directors of
SResthaven are agreed that this sum
should be used for something both
permanent and much needed. A
south porch seems to satisfy both


requirements.
A porch from which the guests
can enjoy the cool breeze in the
summer and the warm sunshine in
winter has been a long-felt need.
Guests in wheelchairs or walkers
and those especially feeble have
been particularly handicapped in
getting their share of the outdoors.
It is the hope of those connected
with Resthaven that a completely
jalousie porch can be built. The
$500 is more than a substantial
beginning.

Drunken Driver Chase Results In
$225 Fine: Claude Malone, 25, of
Sebring, paid a $225 fine and lost
his driver's license for a year in
county court this week for drunk
driving following a wild chase
Saturday night on the highway
between Wauchula and Avon Park.
Sheriff Odell Carlton was answer-
ing a call on another matter when he
spotted a 1951 Oldsmobile wearing
from side to side so violently it was
leaving skid marks on the road. He
gave chase with speeds ranging up
to 90 miles per hour.
The sheriff said he was about to
overtake the auto when it left the
highway, jumped the ditch and took
a 300-yard high-speed circle
through the M.A. Smith pasture.
The driver returned to the hole he
had blasted in the fence, again
jumped the ditch and pulled up
alongside the sheriff's car and
stopped.

Safecracking Job At Oil Plant
Fails: An unsuccessful safecracking
attempt was discovered Monday
morning at Jack Cliett's Purol bulk
plant in Wauchula. Sheriff Odell
Carlton said the thieves apparently
had been frightened away before
they could complete the job. They
had succeeded in "peeling" one cor-
ner of the safe door.
A man was held for a couple of
days on suspicion but released
when officers could get nothing
from questioning him. No finger-
prints could be found and little evi-
dence was discovered. Entrance
into the building was gained by cut-
ting a tin wall.

25 YEARS AGO
Man Killed In Zolfo Collision:
One man was killed and three oth-
ers were seriously injured Saturday
afternoon in a head-on collision in
front of Allen's Exxon Station in
Zolfo Springs. Corben Armstrong,
34,;was dead at the scene. Rescuers
had to extricate his body from the
overturned car he had been driving.
Two other passengers in his car,
Corben Armstrong Jr., 11, his son,
and Larry Criswell, 29, were taken
to Hardee Memorial Hospital and
then transferred to Winter Haven
Hospital. Also transported to Winter
Haven Hospital was Clinton
Norman, 21, the driver of the other
car. Armstrong.Jr., was reported as
being in good condition while
Criswell and Norman were in
guarded condition in the surgical
intensive care unit.


A 62-year-old Wauchula man was
arrested in a stabbing death of a
local man who stayed the night at
his apartment. Letcher Myers was
charged with second degree murder
in the death of Harry Sullins, 50, a
local laborer. Myers' bond has been
set at $5,000 cash or $15,000 surety
bonds. Although Sullins had lived
in this area for of 15 years, police
have been unable to find any next of
kin either here or elsewhere.
His body was discovered under a
sheet outside Myers' apartment
Sunday morning by Police Chief
Raleigh Lowe. Lowe, the owner of
the building, said he tried to turn the
case over to the Hardee County'
Sheriff's Department, but they
insisted he put one of his men in
charge of the case and they would
assist him. Cpl. Vreen Crawford is
currently heading the investigation
and is being assisted by Det.
Herschel Selph.


Way Bak Whe


Landfill Site Chosen For Cost
Study: The Board of County
Commissioners took a step forward
on selecting a landfill site for a cost
analysis Thursday. The board
authorized County Administrator
Harry Lampe to find out the esti-
mated cost of having Seaburn and
Robertson do the test borings on the
Mobile site. This site is 150 acres
located just north ( he present
garbage dump.
Commission Chairman Maurice
Henderson told Lampe to get the
estimated cost as soon as possible
and he would call a special meeting
to act on it. The board took this
action after two of the three munic-
ipalities had rejected the offer of the
county providing fire protection for
all in exchange for the cities provid-
ing a solid waste disposal system
for all. Wauchula and Bowling
Green have already rejected this
with Zolfo Springs expected to do
the same on Monday's meeting.

bought cocaine from a cop during a
weekend reverse sting. Hardee
County Sheriff's Office spokesman
Capt. Arnold Lanier said the under-
cover operation was conducted
Friday from 5 to 11 p.m. in an area
known for its narcotics trade.
He explained that in a reverse
sting, an officer portrays a drug
dealer and waits for the customers
to roll in. When a buy is made, offi-
cers monitoring the transaction
from a nearby spot swoop in for the
arrest. The captain said this time the
"dealer" set up shop at the corner of
Will Duke Road and Washington
Street south of Wauchula. His six-
hour stint allegedly attracted an
equal number of buyers.

Murder Suspect Taken Into
Custody: After nearly five months
on the lam, a suspect in the murder
of a 36-year-old Bowling Green
man has been captured. Ironically,
the family that helped send the vic-
tim's body home to Mexico for bur-
ial also helped bring his alleged
killer to justice.
Antonio "Guero" Arellano, 40,
was arrested Saturday in Nashville,
N.C., when the sister of the man


who worked to return Jose
Valenzuela to his homelands potted
him in a coin laundry there. Lt. Jeff
Faircloth of the Bowling Green
Police Department, the lead investi-
gator in the case, left for North
Carolina early thisweek to bring
the migrant farm worker back to
Hardee County to face charges.

Hundreds Volunteer For River
Clean Up: The first annual Peace
River Clean-Up was a seven-ton
success! Nearly 400 volunteers
answered a call for help from any-
one concerned about the natural
resource. And they collected more
than anyone expected. The clean-up
was held all day Saturday, June 15,
from Crews Riverside Park in
Wauchula to Nocatee.
Sponsors asked for help, and citi-
zens turned out in droves. There
were 386 volunteers, 169 canoes
and 24 airboats to be exact. Helpers
ranged from 7 months old to 70
years old. They were school kids,
political candidates, businessmen,
community service workers, prop-
erty owners, National Guardsmen,
outdoorsmen and people who just
have a love and respect for the river.

After Thoughts
By C.J. Mouser


HERCULES' LAST BATTLE
It's not in my normal routine to carry the lower jawbone of a hog
around in the back of my truck, but I've been doing so for a couple of weeks
now. It just kind of happened that way. The jawbone is the end result of a
battle that my husband and I lost, and isn't something that we have even
remotely considered discarding.
Hercules was our first breeding boar. He was a dusky red, floppy-eared
Duroc that stood roughly 40 inches at the back and weighed four or five
hundred pounds. The first time I saw him, I never dreamed of the possibil-
ity of a relationship with this massive boar. He had a job to do and as long
as he did it, that's all I cared about.
And he did it. In his five years on the farm he fathered hundreds of lit-
tle floppy-eared piglets.
But I was afraid of him and not ashamed to admit it. Then one day I
caught Fred standing inside the pen with him, scratching Hercules' big
broad back while he ate.
"Are you nuts?" I hissed.
"He's not going to hurt anybody. He's just a big old baby," Fred said.
As time went on I learned that Fred's statement was true. Not only was
Here gentle, he was like the cowardly lion in "The Wizard of Oz"; he was
scared of everything. Those floppy ears served as blinders, and made it very
easy to sneak up on him. I can't count how many timesI walked up on him
and scared him half to death.
It was the fear of the unexpected and the fear of pain, particularly from
a hypodermic needle, that seemed to lead to Here's downfall. As big and
tough as he was, Hercules was terrified of shots and, unfortunately, every
now and then even big old tough boars need a shot.
After getting poked the first time, Here was wise to needles. I think he
could sell them, because if you walked back there with a shot in your
hand he was instantly on alert:. If he actually saw the needle he would
scream like a woman and run himself into a lather trying to getaway.
Needless to say, when he got sick, like he did a few months ago, treating
him was close to impossible.: ,
"Herc's off his feed," Fred said one afternoon, and I groaned. A boar
survives for two reasons: to eat and to make baby pigs. When he stops
doing either one, there's reason to worry.
"This is going to be a nightmare," I said.
"Yep. He's probably got some kind of infection, and he's going to need,
a shot."
It was just a matter of time before Fred's prophecy came to pass and
we found ourselves.out there with a hypodermic loaded with penicillin.
True to form, aiid even though Fred kept the shot hidden, Hercules divined
that he was fixin' to get poked and he reacted by squealing for all he was
worth and running around the pen until the earth shuddered under his
hooves. ..:.. '*
We knew that calling a vet wouldbe useless; no doctor with any sense
would get in there with him the way he was acting. So there was simply
nothing to do but wait until whatever it was that ailed him put him off his
feet and he didn't have a choice in the matter. We watered down his feed,


Inside Out
By Chip Sallard


"LATTER DAYS": THE END OF SOMETHING
Last S. ;'rday I got invited to a party that started at 8 p.m. At seven,
with a slight headache and an hour to kill, I turned on the TV and sat back
in a chair. Sally jumped up on my lap. With one hand I scratched her head
as the other worked the remote. I thought it ironic that although when I was
a kid we got only two channels, 8 (NBC) and 13 (CBS), both in black and
white, there was always something on I wanted to see; and now, with 100
channels, all in living color, many times I can't find a thing that interests
me.
.Maybe it's just me. TV is no longer the novelty it used to be; and, of
course, my tastes have changed. A lot of shows I used to like might no
longer appeal to me. But, when I think about it, I can't remember one that
wouldn't. Programs like "The Honeymooners," "Bonanza," "The Andy
Griffith Show" (when Don Knots Barney. was still part of the cast),
"Gunsmoke," "The Hit Parade," "The Millionaire," "I Led Three Lives,"
"Dr. Kildaire" and "Howdy Doody" are all shows I'd watch again.
Anyway, last Saturday night as I sat reminiscing and channel-surfing,
a scene came on the screen that announced loudly this was not any of the
aforementioned programs. There, in the snow outside an airport, stood two
young men, 16 or 17-years-old, kissing. Yes, kissing, and I don't mean
polite pecks on the cheek the way Italians do it in mafia movies; no, I mean
real kissing, on the mouth.
"'What is this?" I wondered as I quickly covered Sally's eyes and put
her outside. I don't remember the channel number, but I do recall distinct-


which seemed to make it more appetizing to him, and kept him comfortable
until one day he lay down by the shed and wouldn't get up, and that's when
we sprang into action :
We pumped him full of medicine; a massive starter dose followed by
daily reinforcements. Despite our efforts, Hercules died late one afternoon,
lying in the shade behind the shed, his motionless body surrounded by his
latest inquisitive offspring.
Hercules was hooked to the tractor and taken to, "Hog Hill," which is
a section of pasture out by the woods where Mother Nature and her helpers
efficiently take care of such remainders. After a time, there was nothing left
but bleached bones, and, it, was in the lower jawbone that the mystery of
Here's demise was solved, .. .
"Look here," Fred said, pointing to a deep, ragged cavity in the jaw-
bone. "Looks like it might have been cancer. He couldn't eat..There was
nothing we could have done." We were leaning on my truck, and I put the
jawbone down in the bed, because it was a handy place to put it.:
This discovery didn't make the loss of Hercules any easier to take, and
this pitiful remainder of what was once a proud, although somewhat cow-
ardly boar, has been treated with a modicum of.reyerence,,and will serve as
a reminder of one of the first and undoubtedly most productive members of
the farm. .
He will be sorely missed.

ly that in the upper left-hand corner of the screen was the word, "Family.'4
This was a family channel? The title of the film, "Latter Days," sounder
like an Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi flick about the end of time, but I did-
n't expect to see Arnie in this one. Sure enough I didn't, either.
What I figured out was going on was that these two boys, Jim, a freo
spirit from San Francisco and Tim, a Mormon from Utah had met at som%
kind of camp somewhere and fallen in love. Having missed the first hom
and a half or so I don't know what kind of homophobic prejudices the
young lovers endured at camp, but at home it isn't pretty, not for thI
Mormon fellow, anyway. The Church excommunicates him, and his moth
er, who hangs up on Jim every time he calls, is portrayed as real b--, er
witch for not understanding and accepting her son's sexual predilection.
Meanwhile Jim, back home iii San Francisco, is surrounded by a
extraordinarily open-minded, accepting, loving circle of family and friends
He suffers no prejudice but agonizes with the lovesick blues. He keeps call-
ing Tim until Tim's mother, before she slams down the phone, tells him Tin4
has cut his wrists.
Thinking Tim is dead, Jim jumps a flight to Utah to return a pocket
watch Tim's mother had given Tim and which Tim gave to Jim. Momr
answers the door and before she can say anything Jim gives her the watch
and tells her through crocodile tears how sorry he is for all the trouble he
has caused. Before she can close her mouth, which has dropped open, Jim
turns and runs away.
After seeing how clean-cut and nice Jim is, and reading the Scripture
she had had engraved on the back of the watch about love and charity, she
has a change of heart, bursts into tears and rushes back outside to call Jim
to come in. But, alas, he is gone.
The next scene shows Tim, alive and well except for small scratches on
his wrists, knocking on Jim's door in San Francisco. The boys hug and kiss'
Then everyone is sitting around a big dinner table, grinning and toasting the.
glorious reunion. The movie ends with Tim and Jim sitting there at the table
holding hands and smiling sweetly as they gaze lovingly into each other's
eyes.
"Latter Days" may not refer to the end of time, but that it is being
shown Saturday evening on a channel calling itself a family station surely
signifies the end of something.
My headache was worse and I felt a little sick. Figuring I was coming
down with a cold, I decided to skip the party and stay home. I let Sally back'
inside and changed the channel to some. old John Wayne movie.

Cops For Christ
By Sgt. Barry L. Schnable
Hardee County Sheriff's Associate Chaplain


DO YOU SIN ALONE?
This article was inspired by the preaching of Scott Waldron of One-
Eighty Ministries at Lake Denton Camp. When we sin, do we do it alone or
do we take anyone with us?
Well, let's explore some truths about the word. We are the body of
Christ right? The Holy Spirit lives in us sothat God can live through us.
God uses us to do His work on earth.
So back to the first question it seems then that when we sin we take
not only God, but the Trinity with us. Think about that the next time you
sin. As born-again Christians, we are to live as Jesus lived on earth, do as
He would do in every situation. We are to be a witness to the world as to
God's unconditional love and forgiveness. I'll get back to forgiveness in a
minute.
Now, of course, we are not and never will be, on this earth, perfect like
Christ, but that is not what the Bible calls for. God knows that we will sin
in some shape or form. He commands us to try and live our lives like Christ
the best that we can, being humble, repenting of our sins, and striving to be
perfect like Christ. So next time that we curse, mistreat someone, have a
negative attitude or whatever sin consumes our lives, use the "Stop, Drop
and Pray" technique. Stop whatever your are doing or what you are about
to do, Drop to your knees and Pray for God's wisdom, direction and for-
giveness.
They may have taken prayer out of schools and the Ten
Commandments out of public buildings but they can never take away your
freedom, your first Amendment right to Stop and Pray whenever and wher-
ever you want to. Think about the sin you are or about to commit and don't
take God with you.
Now back to forgiveness. When we sin everyone knows that you can
pray to God and ask for forgiveness and your sins will be forgiven right?
Well yes, but it's not that simple. I have heard several people say they don't
understand how God can forgive person A for just telling a little white lie,
and at the same time forgive person B for murder, rape, etc .Well, first
Sof all, we cannot just throw up our hands and say, "Lord I'm a sinner for-
Sgive me",and that's the end.
The Bible says you must confess your sins (not that you are just a sin-
ner but tell what your sins are) to one another. That's right you must detail
to God what your sins are in a real and open conversation to get right with


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


'CAUSE DADDY WOULDN'T GO
Daddy had a little boy, his soul was white as snow;
He never went to Bible class 'cause Daddy wouldn't go.
He never heard the Word of God that thrills the childish mind
While other children went to class, this child was left behind.



the Lord.
And here is a side note He already knows what you did, so don't try
and leave anything out. Do you remember when you tried to do that with
your mom and dad and they already knew what you did? Your punishment
was worse because you tried to hide some facts already in evidence.
God is your Father and He knows everything! When you are done con-
fessing your sins and asking for true forgiveness you will rise feeling won-
derful, if you still feel like a heel, then drop back to your knees and ask God
to talk to you because He wasn't there the first-time you will know when
God is in your presence. You will feel love, relief from your problems and
joy if you feel anything else it is not the spirit of God that is with you,
it is Satan remember he is a master of deceit and don't forget he was an
Angel in Heaven at one time so he knows how to act like God to deceive
you.
So what do you do rebuke Satan in the name of Jesus Christ and ask
God to be in your presence and He will cast Satan away and come to you.
Be true to yourself and to the Trinity. God bless all of you and America.

July 20,2006, The Herald-Advocate 7A
As he grew from babe to youth, Dad saw to his dismay,
A soul that once was snowy white became a dingy gray.
Dad even started back to church and Bible study, too;
He begged the preacher, "Isn't.there a thing that I can do?"
The preacher tried and tried, and said, "We're just too far
Behind;
I tried to tell you years ago, But you would pay no mind."
And so another soul was lost, that once was white as snow;
Bible study would have helped, but Daddy wouldn't go.
What a sad sign of our times! But you see this all around you. How
many children do you see at the store or in schools today that know nothing
about the glory of our God and the grace of our,Savior? We often talk about
children walking in their parent's shoes but do we realize how true this real-
ly is? When the parents show no desire for God or His word, then'the chil-
dren cannot be expected to do much better. When the parents do not go to
worship and take God seriously, we cannot expect our children to make it a
point to be the Christians their parents aren't being.
I often hear parents complain about the knives and guns in our schools,
the promiscuity of our teenagers (and younger children) and homosexuality
creeping into our schools. How can they complain when they are laughing
about it on the sitcoms that they watch with their children at night? If your
child' knows that these things have your attention, and they are trying to get
your attention, you can know that they will copy those things.
The problem is not a failure in our school systems. The problem is not
corruption in our government. The problem is not even the toned-down
message of many denominations. The problem is a breakdown of the fami-
ly and the lack of examples that parents set for their children. As Scriptures
says, "My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes watch my ways"
(Proverbs 23:26). We must give our children instructions and examples to
follow. I'm Telling the Truth.J. Adam Shanks is minister of the Church-of

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, makes, streams, pond reservoirs, sprigs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface ofthe lnd or through e ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting fr the presence ofanimals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come fiom sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurrng or result from urban stormwater unoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, orfarming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come fam a variety sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runff and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stomn ter nmaff and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result ofoil and gas production and mining activities.
in order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount ofcertain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in
bottled water, which must provide the sameroectionfor public health. .

Mysterious Tombstone Found


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
A little over two months ago, the
Hardee County Sheriffs office
received an unusual call.
It came from one of the county
employees mowing the ditches on
Hobb Road, which runs between
Polk Road and Doc Coil Road. He
had come across something that
one does not simply find every day,
a tombstone.
Dep. Jamie Wright arrived at the
scene to find a tombstone inscribed
with the name of Carl Hardee, who
was born on June 14, 1910 and was
laid to rest in September of 1929.
His exact date of death can no
-longer be read because of damage
to the stone.
The 19-year-old man died some
77 years ago, which leaves authori-
ties clueless as to where his grave
is.
Hobb Road is a winding,
unpaved road that leads drivers
over a concrete, one-lane bridge in
the middle of pasturelands.
"The tombstone was found north
of the bridge at about 8 a.m. on
May 5, about 100 yards south of
Doc Coil Road," Dep. Wright said.
"It was found about a foot in to the
ditch lying on the side of the road."
Dep, Wright suspects that it was
dropped off after being stolen from
a cemetery.
But, which cemetery did it come
from? "
The nearest cemetery to the road.
is Olive Branch Cemetery, which
according to online sources, hag no
records of any member of the
Hardee family interred there.
Dennis Robarts, of Robarts
Family Funeral Home said that
there are between 25 and 30 ceme-
teries in Hardee County alone.
"There is a family of Hardees in
the Wauchula Cemetery, but there
might also be Hardees in the older
cemeteries in the north end of the
county, like Payne's Creek, Olive

will confirm that there are several
members of the Hardee family
from around the time when Carl
Hardee was alive.
However, there are no missing
tombstones.
An online registry of graveyards
in Hardee County revealed that
there is a Hardee buried in the Lake
Dale Cemetery off of CR 665 and
two Hardees in the Lily Cemetery.
Since the online registries did not
turn up a Carl Hardee interred in
any of the 26 listed cemeteries,
some of the local churches were
contacted.
New Hope Baptist Church on SR
64 was established in 1879, and its
cemetery was opened sometime
during the 1880s or 1890s. The
only person on the registry that
came close to matching Carl
Hardee was a Hardy. Close, but not
a match.
Rilla Cooper of Fort Green
Baptist Church, said'that the church
was established in October 1902
and that cemetery was most likely
established around that same time.
"According to our record books,
Carl Hardee was not a member of
Fort Green Baptist Church," said
Cooper.
Perhaps Carl Hardee was not
even from Hardee County. "We
think that he may have died in Polk
County, but we are not sure," said
Dep. Wright.
The Sheriff's office has been try-
ing to find out where the tombstone
came from as well, but has had no
success so far.
Hopefully, the final resting place
of the man that died young some 77
years ago will soon be located and
his tombstone can return to its
rightful resting place, but as of
now, it is a local mystery.
If anyone has any information,
contact Major Claude Harris at the
Sheriff's office, (773-0304 Ext.
217).


The tombstone was discovered just a few feet away from the one-lane bridge on isolated Hobb
Road.

Panhandle during the week of July 10 16; however, many Panhandle areas
:*remained dry. Rainfall for the week varied from traces, mainly in the
,"Panhandle, to over four inches at Homestead. Some inland areas of the
southern Peninsula recorded unofficial totals of eight inches or more, while
SMonticello reported no measurable rain. In localities receiving rain, most
Reported from a quarter to one and a half inches for the week. Temperatures

Thinking Out Loud


SReally Good Job


Hunting Advice

:By S.L. FRISBIE, IV
Editor's Note: This column was written by publisher S.L. Frisbie IV in the
.'July 13, 2006, issue of the Polk County Democrat in Bartow.
An article on The Wall Street Journal a few weeks ago offered five bits
;.of advice to new college graduates on mistakes to avoid when applying for
i their first jobs.
Paraphrasing enough to avoid a nasty copyright infringement letter
from the WSJ's lawyer, the article counseled:
Don't limit your search to the Internet. Ask for help from real people,
,-even (gasp!) your parents.
Don't address your application To Whom It May Concern. If you
don't care enough find out who's doing the hiring (or at least the name of
Sthe president of the company), you haven't shown a whole lot initiative.
Don't wear shower shoes and bare midriff tops. And guys, if your
jeans hang lower than your underdrawers, forget it; and you can take that to
;the bank.
Don't talk constantly during the entire interviews; do some listening.
Don't stroll out and wait for your phone to ring; follow up with a note
or letter thanking the potential employers for the interview.
Good advice, all of it, and frankly, I summarized it a lot quicker than the
;WSJ did, and with a better sense of humor.
Okay, I've been writing three or four times as long as the person who
'.rote the Journal, who gets his or her (is Aleksandra a man or a woman?)
!'revenge by making three or four times as much money as I do.
SFair is fair.
SI took some encouragement from that article; it reminded me that even
,as low as the unemployment rate is, there are still some qualified folks out
'there looking for jobs. To an employer, that's good news.
Here are a few other hints, by and large stuff that you won't read any-
Iwhere else. It's what I call really good job hunting advice.
.Where it says on the application form "Salary expectation," don't write
;"Negotiable." Hey, I've been hiring people for more than four decades; I
.know that salary is negotiable. Tell me what ball park you're looking at. It
could save us both a lot of time, or it could tell me that your expectations
,,are realistic.
(I recall the .cpmen5 ofa friend who tod me thai he onc I applied to a
phosphate comp~aisrf'li*isirs) :lbb, anrd \~ th he didn't geftif:"tiey already
had a president.")
You'll usually find a place to list three or four previous employers. Fill
it out. If all you've done is wait tables, list the restaurants. I learned years
Sago that anybody who has worked as a waiter or waitress isn't afraid of hard
i work. I like that in a job applicant.
If'your last job was as a bartender or a cocktail waitress, say so, and be
proud of it. (I'm an Episcopalian, and we drink in front of each other. If
you're applying for a, job as youth director at the First Baptist Church,
Maybe you'll want to reconsider this advice.)
List the phone numbers and supervisors for your previous jobs. If you
.can't remember the phone number, one of us is going to have to call.411;
2bettervyou than me, right?And if you can't remember your supervisor's
Same ... what do you mean you can't remember your supervisor's name?
Chances are there's a place to list two or three personal references. Give
this one your best shot. There may be a previous employer or two who
won't have many nice things to say about you, but somewhere along the
Line, you're bound, to have made a few friends.
SPick ones wh6 have the kind of enthusiasm to help you get the job.
Chances are you can make a better choice than your boyfriend or girlfriend.
Or your roommate.
But the chances are I won't even call your personal references. I'm
' going to call your past employers; they're the ones who can tell me about
Things like your work ethic and your loyalty to your employer. They can,
Sand in all likelihood, they will. Even if their company policy discourages it.
SOkay,- too bad I didn't give you this advice before you took your first
,job waiting tables in college four years ago, but give every job your best
shot. Give two weeks (or more) notice when you leave.
I Lkave with a smile on your face, even it it hurts.
It'll pay off later.

Okra harvesting remained active in Dade County. Light supplies of
grape tomatoes were also available. Ground preparations for fall crop plant-

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture condition is very poor to
good, but most are poor due to drought. Stock ponds are very low or dry. In
the central areas, pasture condition is fair to good. In the southwest, pasture
is fair to good with most in fair condition. Statewide, cattle ranges from
poor to excellent with most in fair condition.
CITRUS
Afternoon and early evening showers several days during the week
brought one and a half inches of rain just south of Tampa and less than one
inch to all other monitored citrus areas across the State. High temperatures
the past week were in the low to mid 90s in all areas, except Ft. Pierce






Wasted Time
The time that I've wasted is my biggest regret,
Spent in these places I will never forget.
Just sitting and thinking about the things that I've done,
The crying, the laughing, the hurt and the fun.
Now it's just me and my hard-driven guilt
Behind a wall of emptiness I allowed to be built.
I'm trapped in my body, just wanting to run
Back to my youth with its laughter and fun.
But the chase is over and there's no place to hide.
Everything is gone, including my pride.
With reality suddenly right in my face,
I'm scared, alone and stuck in this place.
Now memories of the past flash through my head
And the pain is obvious by the tears that I shed.
I ask myself why and where I went wrong.
I guess I was weak when I should have been strong.
Living for the drugs and the wings I had grown,
My feelings were lost, afraid to be shown.
As I look at my past, it's so easy to see
The fear that I had, afraid to be me.
I'd pretend to be rugged, so fast and so cool
When actually lost like a blinded old fool.
I'm getting too old for this tiresome game .
Of acting real hard with no sense of shame.:
It's time that I change and get on with my life,
Fulfilling my dreams for a family and wife.
What my future will hold, I really don't know,
But the years that I've wasted are starting to show.
I just live for the day when I'll get a new start
And the dreams I still hold deep in my heart.
I hope I can make it, I at least have to try
Because I'm heading toward death, and I don't want to die.

Wauchula officials gathered last week for the ribbon cutting for the Oak Street Park. Mayor David
Royal (center) had a lot of help doing the honors. Phase I, which includes a championship ten-
nis court, playground, picnic benches, concrete sidewalks and parking areas, was recently com-
pleted with a $200,000 Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program grant and other
monies. On Monday the city was notified of another $200,000 FRDAP grant which will complete
Phase II, drinking fountains, a flagpole, swales, lighting and a basketball court. In photo (from

FLAG COMES HOME!


Q: The label on my olive oil
says that it contains saturated fat.
Isn't olive oil a monounsaturated
fat?
A: Actually, all fat is a mixture
of different types of fatty acids.
These fatty acids ire the "building
blocks"- of fat. For simplicity's
sake, we refer to different sources
of fat by the primary type of fatty
acid in them. We say that saturated
fat is in meat, cheese and ice cream;
trans fat is in hydrogenated shorten-
ings and French fries; monounsatu-
rated fat is in olive oil and peanut
butter; and polyunsaturated fat is in
safflower oil and sunflower seeds.
All of these foods, however, con-
Stain a mixture of fatty acids. We
refer to them by the most common
fatty acid, because the highest
amount indicates the kind of effect
the food is most likely to produce.
Although we describe foods sim-
plistically in this way, what matters
most is how much saturated and
trans fat you consume each day
from all sources. Consequently, you
still need to think about the amount
of undesirable fats in more healthy
fatty foods, like olive oil.
Fortunately, these healthier fat
sources like olive oil increase your
daily sum of saturated fat much
more slowly. Less than 14 percent
of the fat in olive oil is saturated fat,
unlike beef, in which 50 percent is
saturated fat.
Q: I'm trying to stop cleaning
my plate at every meal, but my
husband feels that I'm wasting
food. Is there a healthy compro-
mise?
A: You can follow internal
hunger signals for how much to eat
without wasting food. Paying atten-
tion to these signals is considered
an important part of healthy eating
and weight control. Many people,
however, have grown up with the
idea that cleaning their plate is the
key,:to avoiding food waste. But you
should realize that eating more than
you; need is also wasting food. To
really avoid any waste, you need to
put less food on your plate. That's
the'bottom line, and it should please
everyone. To do this at home, you
can prepare less food. When eating
out, order smaller portions, skip
extra courses, or get an appetizer
and a salad or soup instead of a tra-
ditional main dish. When there's
less food to start with, and you still
can't eat it all, there won't be much
left ,behind.
Another strategy is to practice
saving food for future meals. You
can either serve the food in the
same form, or add it to soups,
casseroles, salads and sandwiches.
To follow this plan, you can make
or buy the same amount of food, but
serve yourself a much smaller por-
tion than usual. If you are hungry
after eating this amount, have more.
When you are satisfied, store the
remainder for another meal.
Leftovers can make a quick healthy
meal on busy nights when you
might otherwise turn to fast-food
restaurants. They can also make
good take-to-work lunches.
Q: Does the vegetable called
jicama have any nutritional
value? How is it prepared?
A: Jicama (the "j" is pronounced
like an "h") is a root vegetable that
looks like a cross between a turnip
and a potato. You can peel it, slice it
into ,trips and serve it raw in salads
or with4a lowfat dip. You can also
41


.cook it by steaming, stir-frying, or
oven roasting. Jicamas have a mild
flavor and crunchy texture.
You should choose smaller ones-
because they're less woody. They
should be free of bruises. A whole
cup of raw jicama contains only
about 50 calories. They are an
excellent source of vitamin C and a
good source of dietary fiber.
Q: Is ketchup a good source of
lycopene?
A: Lycopene, found primarily in
tomatoes, is a natural phytochemi-
cal that acts as an antioxidant and
seems to help lower the risk of can-
cer, like other phytochemicals in
vegetables, fruits, whole grains and
beans. Although lycopene in
ketchup comes in a form easily used
by our bodies, one tablespoon of
ketchup provides only 2.9 mil-
ligrams (mg) of it.
Every little bit helps, but foods
we eat in larger portions can pro-
vide much more. For example, one-
half cup of tomato sauce provides
about 19 mg, while one cup of
tomato juice provides about 23 mg.
If you eat large amounts of
ketchup, you will get more
lycopene. But keep in mind that
your sugar and salt consumption
will also rise. If you eat seven table-
spoons (almost half a cup) of
ketchup, you would get the same
amount of lycopene as in the toma-
to sauce and juice examples above.
But you would also consume half a
day's worth of sodium and about six
teaspoons of sugar. While'tomato
juice and sauce can provide quite a
bit of sodium, too, unless you
choose reduced-sodium varieties,
any choice will have less than
ketchup.
Q: Do I. need to eat some
enriched refined grains to get
folate, or do whole grains supply
enough?
A: The most concentrated
sources of folate, a B vitamin, are
actually legumes (dried beans) and
dark green leafy vegetables such as
spinach, broccoli and kale.
Although they do not contain as
much, grains enriched with folate
are also a significant source.
Refined grains that have been
enriched generally have more folate
than whole-grain versions of the
same product, but breakfast cereals
are an exception. Both kinds of
cereals can be fortified to reach
similar levels. You should choose
the whole-grain kinds because of
their fiber advantage.
However, you do not have to
worry about your folate intake at
all, if you eat in accordance with the
2005 Dietary Guidelines for Ameri-
cans or the American Institute for
Cancer Research's recommenda-
tions for cancer prevention.
Because of their emphasis on high-
folate-content beans and dark green
vegetables, these eating styles will
take you well beyond the
Recommended Dietary Allowance
(RDA) for folate. By eating five to
10 vegetable and fruit servings
daily, you will further increase your
folate consumption. Enriched
grains may be advisable for people
who don't follow these healthy eat-
ing styles. But, although these peo-
ple would get folate, they would-
miss the fiber, magnesium and other
health-promoting plant compounds
found in vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and beans.
Q: Will the small 100-calorie


packs of about six cookies help
me try to lose weight?
A: By helping you limit your
snack portion, a small six-pack of
cookies would definitely be a wiser
weight-loss -move than munching
from a full-size package of cookies.
But are you sure that your small
package is a low-calorie treat?
Check the label. Many small pack-
ages of cookies contain 190 to 270
calories. Instead of one of these,
you should try taking just one or
two regular-sized packaged cook-
ies. Even better, a delicious piece.
of fresh fruit would give you few
calories, good nutrition, and more
fiber to keep you feeling full longer.
Q: Only charred meat makes
grilling a cancer risk, right?
A: Black char on red meat or
chicken does contain a high con-
centration of cancer-causing sub-
stances, but the risk from grilling
comes from. more- than char.
Cooking meat at a very high tem-
perature either indoors or outdoors
increases the formation of sub-
stances called heterocyclic amines
(HCAs). These carcinogenic sub-
stances can cause genetic mutations
in our cells that lead to the develop-
ment of cancer. To reduce their for-
mation, studies show that you
should cook at lower temperatures.
This change adds only about two
minutes to the cooking time, but
produces substantially fewer HCAs.
Although it is important to cook
meat thoroughly to kill bacteria and
make it safe to eat, the more well-
done you cook meat, the more
HCAs there tend to be.,
Another potential cancer risk
from grilling comes when you cook
high-fat meat that drips fat, creating
a lot of smoke. As the smoke rises,
another class of carcinogenic com-
pounds called polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons (PAHs) is deposited
on the meat. To reduce this prob-
lem, grill lower fat choices and
avoid flare-ups. To further decrease
your total carcinogen exposure,
limit the portion of grilled meat you
eat. You can grill vegetables and
fruits instead. They're delicious
grilled, and they don't form, HCAs
or PAHs. Or add some side salads to
your meal to switch your dining
focus to vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and beans that provide a
wide range of cancer-fighter sub-
stances.
Q: I've heard a lot about a
cheese called queso fresco, which
is popular in Mexican cooking?
How nutritious is it?
A: Queso fresco is a fresh
cheese, like farmer's cheese, that is
not aged, unlike cheddar and Swiss,
for example. The fat and calorie
content of queso fresco varies,
because it can be made entirely of
whole milk or partly with skim
milk, just like ricotta cheese, which
comes in two versions. Queso fres-
co can be crumbled on salads or
sprinkled on soups. It is also popu-
lar as a stuffing for peppers,
because it softens but does not melt
when heated. You should feel free
to enjoy this cheese in modest
amounts as a way to add flavor and
protein to plant-based dishes.
However, pregnant women and
people with impaired immune func-
tion (including many elderly peo-
ple) are advised to avoid it and any
other fresh cheese, since they are
potential sources of listeria bacteria
that can pose serious health con-
cerns for these groups.

Love is an irresistible desire to
be irresistibly desired.

Hardee 11-12s Beat Bartow

Start State Playoffs Saturday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
. The last of the Hardee All-Star
teams got into action recently in a
big way, claiming the District 7
Championship.
Beating Bartow two of three
times, the Hardee All-Stars will
advance in the winner's bracket in
the state tournament which starts
Saturday at the East Lakeland field.
Bartow. will go in the runners-up
bracket.
It took a half dozen long games
for the local All-Stars to complete
district play, as coaches, kids and
parents journeyed daily to the Pittas
Complex in Bartow.
Hardee took the opening game
on July. 8 over rival Fort Meade 8-
I with a trio of pitchers having a
dominant performance. Justin
Bromley pitched three innings,
Wintz Terrell took two more and
Malik Tatis finished it off.
Together, they retired on strikeouts
15 of the 27 batters they faced.
In the next game, Hardee faced
Wahneta and again won handily,
10-1.
Dalton Hewitt, Justin Knight and
Tatis opened with back-to-back sin-
gles. A Terrell sacrifice plated one


run and an error on a Jesse Zuniga
hit brought others home. Bromley
and Murrell Winter each singled
before the final out. Hardee had
plated four runs.
Hardee added another quartet of
scores in the third inning when
Hewitt doubled. Knight was
walked and the pair executed a per-
fect double steal. Tatis also drew a
walk and Terrell was hit by a pitch.
A Dawson Crawford walk and sin-
gle by Winter kept the runners
moving along. The first four
scored. It was 8-1.
Hardee picked up a run each in
the fourth and fifth innings. Hewitt
singled, stole second and third and
scored in the fourth and Carter
Lambert did the same thing in the
fifth.
Bromley took the mound and
went the distance in the 2-1 victory
July 10 in the first game against
host Bartow. He recorded a dozen
strikeouts, allowing three hits, a
walk and hit batsman. An opening
triple in the top of the seventh, fol-
-lowed by a double, plated Bartow's
only run.
Hardee, the victim of eight
strikeouts, waited until the bottom


of the seventh for its come-back
heroics. Hewitt drew a walk and
Knight was hit by a pitch. They
scored on a hit by Tatis and error
when Terrell was at bat.
On to another game against Fort
Meade on July 11, this time down-
ing them 11-1 in a game shortened
on the 10-run mercy rule. Vince
Grimsley and Terrell shared mound
duties for the first three innings and
Hewitt took over for the last two.
Hardee started scoring in the sec-
ond inning when Terrell doubled
and Bromley, Winter and Jeremy
Rowe followed with singles. In the
third inning Jake Altman was
walked, stole second and third and
cruised home on an error on a
Grimsley hit.
Twin tallies were added in the
fourth inning. Tatis doubled, Terrell
walked and an error on a Zuniga
hit allowed the first two to come
home.
Hardee's final scores came in the
top of the fifth, when a bat-around
produced a half dozen .tallies.
Hewitt and Knight both doubled
and Tatis smacked a three-run
homer over the fence. Terrell was
hit by a pitch and Bromley and
Winter both walked, stealing their


way home before the final out.
In the second meeting with
Bartow on July 12, the home team
used a three-run fourth inning to
steal a 4-3 victory and force a
championship game. Hardee got on
board in the bottom of the first
when Tatis singled, stole second
and third and raced home on a
passed ball.
Hardee padded its lead with
another score in the second stanza.
Crawford was safe on the third
sacker's error and was pushed
around the bases by Winter, Altman
and Daniel Miller.
Bartow got one run back in the
top of the third to make it 2-1.
Hardee picked up the equalizer in
the home half of the third when

Hewitt singled and stole his way
around the bases. It was 3-1.
Bartow forged ahead with its trio
of fourth inning scores, starting
with a solo homer by Alex
Rakestraw, followed by a pair of


walks and stolen bases to bring two
more runners home.
The rest of the game was a
pitchers' duel, with neither team
able to get anyone on base or home.
The evenly matched teams went
at it again on July 13, each having
one loss in the double-elimination
tournament. Again Hardee got on
the board first. In the second
inning, Zuniga got aboard and
wouldn't quit until he had crossed
home plate on an error on a
Crawford hit.
Hardee went farther ahead with a
pair of runs in the top of the fourth
inning. Knight singled, Tatis drew a
walk and Terrell doubled to score
them both. Bartow responded with
a trio of scores in the home half of
the inning on a combination of
walks, a single and pair of doubles.
Terrell relieved Tatis and retired the
next three batters.
Both team stranded batters in the
fifth. In the top of the sixth, Tatis


waited patiently for a walk, and
Lambert, Zuniga and Bromley each
singled. An error on a Crawford hit
kept the runners moving. The first
four batters scored, giving Hardee a
7-3 advantage.
Bartow tried to rally, with
Mitchell Starling lifting a solo
homer over the fence. Two more
runners got on base, and the tying
run was at the plate, when Terrell
knuckled down and struck out the
final batters to give Hardee the
championship.
If Hardee can repeat its heroics in
the state championships in Lake-
land, it could advance to the World
Series in Goodlettsville, Tenn. in
August.
Members of the district champi-
onship are Hewitt, Knight, Tatis,
Terrell, Zuniga, Bromley, Craw-
ford, Lambert, Winter, Altman,
Miller, Rowe and Grimsley, along
with their coaches Tommy Taylor,
Kenny Hewitt and Brian Knight.


Lock in a great rate.

He was twenty years old, and
was in a hole minre often than a
gravedigger.
He was poor at spelling, worse
at reading, and very bashful.
He was fired from his first three
Jobs, and:couldn't find a fourth. j
But he had one good quality
He wouldn't give up. So he started
making brushes and selling them
door to door. Then he did well.
His name?Alfred.Fuller, founddl
of the Fuller Brush Company.
The only way to make a "come
back" is to go on. But go on with
God. Pray, prepare and perse-
vere.
The Living Bible says, "Put God
first, and He will direct you and
crown your efforts with success."

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

REVERIE BY A CORN CRIB
I walked over a hill or two, rolled under a barbed wire fence and walked
to my neighbor Joe's house for a visit. He wasn't home so I took shelter
from a sharp spring breeze by sitting on a log beside a corn crib. My 80-
',ear-old body was glad for the rest.
From my vantage point, I looked over a quarter acres of land newly
)lowed up. It was usually reserved for Joe's garden.
As I took note of the big furrows ripped up, peeled back and crushed
)y the tractor wheels, I began to see a portrait of my life and the lives of
Others I knew. Change. Change. Change. And, so many times, the changes
seemed as abrupt and violent as the cloven ruts before me.
SLike a death in the family. No matter how long you anticipate it, it
always seems to come unexpectedly. From distant miles the family mem-
bers come to wonder how we will manage without the departed loved one.
And yet younger members step forward, take responsibility and we move
bn.
SThere will be a second plowing of Joe's garden and maybe a third
nd when all has been buried and rained on, someone from that farm house
vill come and sprinkle seed. Then they'll leave that troubled piece of earth
Itself, to wonder what will happen to it next in its bewildered, upside-
own condition. But faithful as the word of God, thin lines of sprouting
green will appear and then stronger shoots and finally full developed plants
weighed down with fruit.
"Grandpa! We're going to town and you're going with us!" In the late
morning sun, I'd almost fallen asleep beside the corn crib. I looked up and
a passel of bright faces, like new flowers, were blooming around me. There
was Scott, Jeremy, Theo, Gregory and tall Ian. Where had they come from,
thesee new members of my fast-expanding family?
I stood up with an effort, remembering my doctor's appointment in
own.: I looked once more at the poor, riven earth of my friend Joe's garden.
t looked so forsaken and forlorn. And it would be plowed still again.
But after that, oh my, just you wait! My God loves to make beautiful
things out bf change!

A trio of state grants will expand
park projects here.
The recently released state bud-
get approved by Gov. Jeb Bush
included $600,000 for parks in the
county and city of Wauchula. Each
was for $200,000.
In all, the state 2006-07 budget
funded $31 million for local parks
across the state through .the state
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection portion of the budget and its
Florida Recreation Development.
Assistance Program (FRDAP)
,grants. DEP said such monies
enihaiice nearby communities by
increasing outdoor recreation op-
portunities and improving public
access to Florida's natural re-
sources. .. .
"Recreation areas plan.an impor-
tant role in Florida's economy,
drawing both residents and visitors
to the state's natural resources,"
said Gov. Bush as he signed the
budget for the fiscal year which
begins Oct. 1.
"Through grant funding from the
state, counties throughout Florida
have the opportunity to expand and
improve parks," he concluded.
Two of the grants will be used on
county parks, one existing and one
to be constructed. First is for Phase
I of a new Ball Complex, adjacent
to Hardee Park. The funds will be
used on a baseball field, and associ-
ated play and picnic areas, restroom
and parking.
At Hardee Park, just north of the

12B The Herald-Advocate, July 20,2006


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a brief break, Men's
League softball resumed last week.
As the week ended, only the
Regulators in Division I were
unbeaten. With a 7-0 record and the
season past the midway point, it is
unlikely anyone will be able to
overcome that lead.
Behind the Regulators in
Division I are Mosaic Phosphates
at 4-3 and Mid-Florida Credit
Union at 3-3. Gomez Tree & Debris
Removal and Robert Flores & Sons
complete the standings.
Division II has twin leaders.
Nicholson's Supply and Peace
River Electric Cooperative Inc.
(PRECo) are both at 5-1 and
Merrill Lynch follows at 4-3. The
Krew and Florida Fence Post round
out the standings.
Games last Tuesday began with a
pair of low-scoring affairs. On
Field 3, PRECo topped Merrill
Lynch 12-7.
For PRECo, it was Rodger
Brutus with a homer and single and
Brian Pohl and Michael Mahoney
each also with a pair of hits. Daryl
Henderson, Pohl and Brutus each
crossed home plate twice.
Ches Graham and Ruben Rivas
each homered for Merrill Lynch.,
Graham was the only twin-tally
batter. Rivas, Thomas Trevino,
Felix Salinas, Mike Carte and
Daniel Barnett each added a run.
Meanwhile, on Field 4, Mosaic
won 9-5 over Mid-Florida.
For. Mosaic, Robert Deuberry
had three RBIs on a pair of hits.
Dana Hughes, Greg Moye and
Harold Smith were twin-score bat-
ters. Austin Helms, Mikey Driskell
and Deuberrry added a run apiece.
For Mid-Florida, it was Kellon
Durrance and James Blum each
stroking a homer. Travis McCleni-
than, Lewis Martin, Wayne Gra-
ham, Blum and Durrance each put a
run on the board.
The Field 4 late game was a 21-
13 win for the Regulators over
Flores.
Ron Yeager homered twice and
Richard Torres and Gary Mills each
doubled for the Regulators. Yeager,
Todd Rogers, Mike Jeter and John
C. each circled the bases three
times.
Marty Gainous launched a grand
slam homer, in the first inning for
Flores. Raul Garcia and Julian
Garcia each raced around the bases
three times. Eric Cobb tripled to
score a pair of teammates.
On Field 3, the Tuesday nightcap
was a 35-18 victory for Nicholson's
over Fence Post.
Over the fence and in-the-park
homers were hit by Nate Lee, Jake
Ehling, Lamar Gilliard and Matt
Gilliard for Nicholson's. Ehling
also stroked three doubles and
Steve Barber and Brad Gilliard
each tripled. W.T. Redding was the
only six-score batter, while Matt


Provau came home five times.
For Fence Post, Ron Carter,
Jason P. and Weston Johnson each
homered. Jason also hit a triple and
double in nearly hitting for the
cycle. Kaleb Saunders, Justin
Painter, Roy, Johnson and Jason
each circled the bases three times.
Both Field 3 games on Thursday
were nail-biters. In the opener,
Merrill Lynch nipped The Krew
20-19.

each homered for Merrill Lynch,
while Felix Salinas and Roy
Rodriguez each tripled. Francisco
Rodriguez, Ray Rivas and Salinas
each doubled. Rivas was the only
four-score batter, while Thomas
Trevino was the only one with four
hits and four RBIs.

Johnson came around to score three
times while Rogers had a perfect
four-for-four scoring night.

PRECo. Rodger Brutus doubled
three times. Mahoney was the only

in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.
