Man Drowns


n Peace River


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A man searching the river for
fossils last week drowned in its
waters.
James Richard Mullins, 54, a
homeless man without a local
address, had been hunting the
Peace River with friends on
Wednesday ef last week when he
separated from the group just
before dark and never returned.
Hardee County Sheriffs Office
spokesman Maj. Claude Harris Jr.
said Mullins was at Crews River-
side Park on East Main Street with
two buddies. "They were wading in
the river, looking for shark's teeth.

Sixth-grade English students thumb through their books as teacher Felicia Madronal helps out a classmate at the new campus of
Hardee Junior High School this week.


"He walked across the river, it
was three or four feet deep," Harris
described. "He said he was going to
go down toward the bridge."
Mullins went off alone, and never
came back.
Harris said one of the men
reported Mullins missing at 8:20
p.m. It was just before dark, he
noted, and a search was begun.
Participating in the search for the
man were the Wauchula Police
Department, the Sheriffs Office,

tion Commission and a sheriffs
helicopter from Polk County, the

HIGH-FLYING FLAG


BG Incumbents Return


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
There will not be a municipal
election in Bowling Green in
September because incumbent City
Commission members David
Durastanti and Richard Barone
drew no opponents during last
week's qualifying period which
ended Friday, announced City
Clerk Pam Northup.


Barone has been on the commis-
sion since last year when he was
appointed to fill the unexpired term
of Woody Caligan who retired. He
is employed with CF Industries.
Durastanti has been on the coun-
cil for several three-year terms and
is principal of Bowling Green
Elementary School.
They will be sworn in for new
terms at the Tuesday, Oct. 10, com-
mission meeting.
At the Aug. 8 meeting, commis-
sioners voted to approve the first
reading of an ordinance to close the
extension of First Street located
south of Palmetto Avenue.
The commission also voted to
OK the first reading of annexation
of property south of the Fiesta
Supermarket on U.S. 17 North.
City Manager David Elbertson
presented a proposed site plan for
Old Orchard Village on property
along Bryan Avenue east of
Bowling Green Elementary School.
The property is the old Sunshine
Akins house and grove owned by
Joe Jones and lies between Bryan
and Freeman avenues.
Proposed are 50 duplex apart-
ments, a clubhouse, swimming
pool and playground. Proposed are
30 two-bedroom, 10 three-bedroom
and 10 one-bedroom duplex apart-
ments. The property is zoned
Residential-2, said Elbertson.

City Plans Many Projects


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula has over two dozen
projects in various planning stages.
In Monday night's meeting, the
City Commission approved amend-
ing the five-year capital improve-
ments schedule and sending it to
the state Department of Commun-
ity Affairs for its approval.
Several of the projects are in

"I'm sure she wants to see how the
state dollars were spent and how
the school is functioning, so she
can go back to and tell the legisla-
tive body how it is."
"I'll be glad to show it off," Nix
said of her new campus.
Mae Robinson, principal of
Hardee Junior High,' said, "On
behalf of the junior high, we are
delighted to: have the lieutenant
governor come to the school. We
want to show it off because we cer-
tainly have accomplished a lot."
Robinson also said that this
would be a special chance for the
students to meet someone of such
importance in the Florida Legis-
lature.
Toni Jennings is the 16th lieu-
tenant governor, and is the first
woman to hold the position. She is
a native of Orlando, and started off
as a public school teacher at
Killarney Elementary in Orange
County.
She served two terms in the
Florida House of Representatives
and then, in 1980, she was elected
to the Florida State Senate before
becoming Jeb Bush's running mate.

Substation transformer upgrades,

SCHOOL


Continued
At North Wauchula Elementary,
the first day also was trouble free.
"It was wonderful, like we had
been attending school for months,"
said Principal Sonja Bennett, "and
it's going great now, the kids are
getting back into routine." '
Currently there are 510 studelits
at that school.
The first day of school at
Wauchula Elementary went off
without a hitch. "Our first day was
terrific. The new transportation sys-
tem is being worked out with little
confusion," Principal Michele Polk
said.
That new transportation system
refers to the way-the buses are shut-
tling students from other school
zones over to Hilltop Elementary
on the same bus.
"It is a lot like riding a bicycle for
the kids, they are all remembering
the routine and getting back into it
after the summer break," said Polk.
Hardee Junior High School has
moved to its new facilities and
location adjoining the new Hilltop
Elementary this year. It was also
the first time the new junior high
opened its doors to the public.
"Everything went smoothly until
the very end. Transporting the stu-
dents was the only glitch. A lot of
car riders' parents showed up for
the first day, and it all bottlenecked.
But, it was not that much of a prob-
lem," said Doug Herron;, assistant
principal of the junior high.
"We are still working out a few
minor kinks with the buses, since
we have to have two waves os stu-
dents leave, but other than that
things are continuing to run fine
now," he said.
According to Herron there were
927 junior-high students enrolled
on the first day.
Principal Mike Wilkinson of
Hardee Senior High School said,
"Our first day back was pretty
good. There were no major prob-
lems, and the kids are being coop-
erative."
Part of this success he attributed
to the large number of students who
attended open house and received
their schedules early, avoiding con-
fusion on the first day. A total of
1,271 students attended the first
day.
The schools were not the only
ones having a great first day back.
The transportation department
had all of its buses where they
needed to be. Dick Daggett, direc-
tor, said, "It went as good as we
could expect. Everyone got home
safely, and that is our goal."
There were a few issues with get-
ting students to the new school, but
the five members of the Hardee
County School Board were on hand
to ride the buses to Hilltop
Elementary and to help sort out the
children, Daggett said.
Schools Superintendent Dennis
Jones said he believed Hardee
County's was the only district in the
state where all five School Board
members rode school buses and
worked campuses for days, to help
ensure a successful start to the new
scholastic year.
"That's commendable," he said.
Jones also marveled at the
smooth opening for the brand-new
schools, Hilltop and Hardee Junior
High.
"I would thank everybody, but I
risk leaving somebody out, and I do
hesitate because there were so
many people who assured that
school started on time and very
well," Jones began. "But I do want
to take the risk and single out one,
Rob Krahl and his maintenance
staff." He went on to commend the
men for their efforts in moving to
the new campus.


d From IA
School Board Chairman Wendell
Cotton applauded the teachers, who
"were out there. helping, the chij-
dren," giving attention to all.
SMember Tanya Royal echoed his
.statements. "They wanted every
child to know where to go," she
said.
SGina Neuhofer remarked how
well the bus drivers and students
did during what could have been a
confusing time, and Jan Platt, too,
noted that the smooth start was
attributable "to everybody pulling
together."
Member Joe Jones said he
enjoyed his time at the school,
especially showing lost youngsters
how to get to their classrooms.
With only a handful of glitches
and kinks that will all be smoothed
out in time, Hardee schools already
seem to be functioning as well as
they always have, promising for a
won drful school year. ,

It is hard to believe, but Hardee Wildcat varsity footba! begins this
Friday night in a kickoff classic here against Lake Region.
The regular season will begin Friday, Aug. 25, here with Cape Coral
Mariner. Hardee High has a 42-game regular season winning streak.
Head coach Derren Bryan spoke to the Wauchula Lions Club last
Thursday and said the team went to a camp earlier this summer at Lake
Childs and practiced three times a day there. The camp was sponsored by
the Church of the Nazarene, and Hardee's expenses were paid by the local
Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
"It was the most rewarding experience as a coach since I have been
here," said Bryan, who wants to see more Wildcat players go to college.
The Wildcats this year will feature an option offense to better fit the
team's personnel.
Bryan said this year's schedule is the same as last year and is "tough".
Another 10-0 season is possible, but I would not bet on it.
"Our assistant coaches are so important. We have a great coaching
staff. Six of the seven coaches played for the Wildcats," said Bryan. He
credited the entire staff, plus good players, parents and community support,
for the past four 10-0 regular season records.

A lot of people in Hardee County knew Mark Palmer, 45, owner/oper-
ator of Mark Palmer Electric in Highlands County. He was a native of
Hardee County and lived in Avon Park with his wife and two children.
He died suddenly the morning of Aug. 3 of an apparent heart attack. He

St. Michael's Wins Tourney


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Threatening skies did not stop
the championship game.
The 2006 Women's Church
Softball League finished up its
post-season tournament Tuesday
night despite heat lightning and
imminent rain which flooded the
area about midnight.
St. Michael's Catholic Church
fought off a Wauchula First
Methodist rally and prevailed 10-8
in the exciting finish to the season.
First Methodist had taken the regu-
lar-season title with an undefeated
record.
St. Michael's had the early hot
hand in Tuesday evening's tourna-
ment finale.
Glenda Eures, Sami Jo Morgan,
Lori Dees and Stephanie Roberts
circled the bases in the first inning,
aiddd by a triple by Jodi Griffin.
Wauchula went four up, three
down.
St. Michael's padded its lead
with another trio of tallies in the top
of the second stanza. Amy Franks
tripled, Eures was safe on an error
and Morgan tripled to score the first
two. Morgan trooped home on a
Dees single.
Momentum swung to First
Methodist in the third inning when
Shauntee Hines, Heather Heine and
Meagan Smith put runs on the
board to cut the deficit to 7-3. The
Methodists cut the lead to 7-6 with
another three runs in the fifth, with
Smith, Mary Morgan and Aimee

In the sixth inning, the
Methodists forged ahead 8-7 with

and service in Hardee County. His aunt Deanna Conerly furnished the fol-
lowing information:
"Mark Palmer was a descendant of a Hardee County family. He was
born on December 12, 1960, and deceased on August 3, 2006. Mark had
several roots in Hardee County. He was the son of Robert and Mary Palmer.
Mark was born at the Palmetto Clinic in Wauchula and resided in Avon Park
with his wife and children.
"Mary (Carlton) Palmer moved to Avon Park after attending nursing
school in Tampa and married Robert Palmer. Mark was a successful busi-
ness owner of Mark Palmer Electric for a period of years.
"In the sudden event that Mark left this life and started a new life he
was survived by the following family members who loved him dearly:
Violet Mosley, aunt of Avon Park; her daughter, Sharon Bailey and her hus-
band Danny, cousin of Avon Park; Deanna.Conerly, aunt of Wauchula; her
daughter Carla Nava, cousin of Wauchula and her children Vicki and hus-
band Ryan Locklear of Zolfo Springs and Chris Nava of Wauchula; David
Conerly and wife Darlina Conerly, cousin of Wauchula and their children
Justin and Joshua Conerly; Jim Carlton and his wife Virginia, cousin of
Wauchula; their children Ginger Eures and husband Matt of Sebring, Jan
Cook and husband Jay, their children Elizabeth, Bill, Jessica and Jonathan
of Argentina, Daniel and wife Catherine of Zolfo Springs. He was preced-
ed in death by maternal grandparents Dowdney and Muriel Carlton.
S "Mark will surely be missed by this family as well as many other fam-
ily members and friends from all around the community."

In this new global economy with little or no tariffs (called free trade)
there is no wonder many American companies have established manufac-
turing plants in other countries.
A recent issue of Industries Week magazine reported Nike used Japan
to manufacture its tennis shoes, then went to South Korea, then Taiwan and
now is using China in following low wage rates.
The manufacturing wage in China in 2004 was about 60 cents an hour
in American money. The manufacturing wage in Mexico in 2004 was just
under $2.50 an hour that is why a lot of basic manufacturing plants are
no longer located in Mexico.
Jobs in America paying $8 to $11 an hour look pretty good to Mexican
citizens who can cross the border into America and earn several times what
they could make in Mexico.
A lot of change is going on in the American and world economy. As
long as there is free trade with no tariffs, business owners are going to look
to produce their goods for the lowest cost and still maintain quality.
Nike can make more profit and offer a lower price to meet competition
if they sell tennis shoes made in China on 60 cents an hour labor as opposed
to shoes made in America on $10 an hour labor.
This helps developing countries bring up the standard of living for
many of their workers but can put some downward pressure on developed
countries like the U.S.

College football and athletics can be big business, reports the August
issue of CFP magazine.
The University of Texas, which won the national championship_ last
season, has approved $150 million to remodel and expand their football sta-
dium. This will add 10,000 seats and 44 premium suites and will be com-
pleted in 2008. This is on top of a $90 million football stadium upgrade aid
expansion project completed in 1999. The total seating cpacity will be
over 90,000 by 2008. .
The University of Michigan football stadium-seats 107,000. The uni-
versity is going to add 83 suites and 3,200 club seats in a $226 million over-
haul.
Most universities lose money on their athletic programs, however
some are very profitable. For the 2004-05 academic year, the universities of
Georgia, Michigan and Kansas showed a profit of over $10 million.
Virginia Tech, Texas and Iowa earned over $6 million. Showing a profit of
$5 million were Kansas State, Texas A & M, Alabama and LSU.
Showing a loss of over $7 million were Arkansas Little Rock and
California Berkley. Cincinnati lost $4 million and North Texas $3 mil-
lion. Losing over $2 million were South Carolina, West Virginia,
Washington and Hawaii. Losing over $1 million were Neveda and North
Carolina State.

TRIM Notices In Mail


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The weekend's mail will bring
the first of the annual proposed tax
notices to area residents.
Hardee County Property Ap-
praiser Kathy Crawford and her
staff are mailing TRIM notices to
all property owners tomorrow
(Friday).
The Truth In Millage forms sim-
ply tell residents what they can
expect when they receive their tax
bills in November. It also tells them
of public budget hearings on pro-
posed taxes, and how to appeal
their tax bill.
"Some people are going to be
significantly shocked by the tax
increases this year," said Crawford.
The overall taxable value is up
13.73 percent but the market or just
value of property is up 25.54 per-
cent, she said.
Crawford noted, however, that
,some people will benefit from pro-
tections under the "storm amend-
ments." People who had to rebuild
after losing their homes to hurri-
canes Charley, Frances and Jeanne
will not have the market value
assessments of other new homes. If
they had had homestead exemption
before the hurricanes, they will still
qualify for the Save Our Homes
three percent limitation, Crawford
explained.
Some people will also have
widow/widower, veterans, seniors
and other exemptions, raising their
homestead exemption from the
standard $25,000 (see sample).
When tax bills are received they

which were increased recently to

fire protection assessment, but
those in the municipalities pay the

There are several proposed
changes in millage this year. The
county has upped its to 9.0 mills
from last year's 8.7064. Bowling

age to 7.25, up from the 6.0 it has
been for many years. Wauchula,

TIPS FOR ORGANIZING BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPENDING
Back-to-school time is one of the biggest spending times of the year.
Families are faced with buying school clothes and classroom supplies for
their children. Teachers often are faced with not only buying for their chil-
dren, but for themselves and their own classrooms as well.
It is burdensome to the family budget and quite convenient and easy to
over-extend credit buying, only to face the bills over the coming months,
which lead into the holiday season, which is another heavy spending peri-
od.
So, what to do? The Institute of Consumer Financial Education has 10
tips for helping families avoid heavy debt during this back-to-school time
of year. My hope is that these ideas will help. keep your family sper4iigr
plan healthy! Try these spending tips as you continue filling y0Lr bac-to-
school needs.
1.) Make a list of what is needed by category; for example, clothing,
books, sports; music, etc.
2.) Plan ahead and watch for store sale flyers, flea markets, garage
sales, clearance sales, etc.
3.) Establish a spending plan and timetable for purchases over several
weeks or months.
4.) Comparison shop with at least five different sources for the best
values.
5.) Consider not buying all the needed clothing initially, because it
may all need replacing at the same time. Spread out these purchases over
many weeks. Allow some flexibility so as to take advantage of sales and
true bargains.
6.) Avoid using credit cards to spend income not yet earned. They are
too expensive and users either pay interest or an annual fee, or both, for the
convenience. Some credit card companies routinely promote indiscriminate
spending, which so often can result in overspending.
7.) When it comes to trendy items for school clothes or school sup-
plies, encourage children to become independent and not "go-with-the-
flow" demanding all of the latest fads from the summer's hottest movies,
for example. Fads often lose their steam after school starts because nearly
every other child has them.
8.) If you have more than one school-age child in your house, you may
want to consider setting aside money each month of the year for this
expense to avoid having to divert money away from other expenses. Good
money managers follow this practice.
9.) Use layaway plans for clothing, supplies, etc. whenever possible
and practical.
10. Purchase previously used textbooks, lab tools and supplies, etc.
when possible.

Freda's Foibles
By Freda B. Douglas


I am moving to Alabama. When? At the time I am writing this, all I
can say is soon. With whom? My best friend, Linda, her son, Jason, daugh-
ter-in-law Jennifer, all their dogs and my cat, Jewely.
Why? Because Linda says as long as she lives I will never go into a
nursing home. I've never been in the state of Alabama, but considering that
affirmation, I really don't care where she puts me.
Now, about my column. Perhaps because I have written my column for
over 17 years and know my readers better than most, I figured they would
like to know about my new life. I approached Jim Kelly about changing the
title from Freda's Foibles to From the Hills of Alabama. I suppose because
I would dare to move from his beloved Hardee County, he rejected my
offer.
Don't get me wrong. Hardee County has been good to me, as well as
its people, but there is a difference between us. When my beloved husband,
John, and I came to Florida in 1984 we picked Hardee County, Hardee
County didn't pick us. We joined our church, John joined Kiwanis and
Legion and I secured employment.
Even after I had my stroke in 1994, John and I enjoyed life. Then in
February 2001 my world changed. God took John home. Now I have a
chance, once again, to be surrounded by love. Giving up a newspaper col-
umn is a small price to pay for happiness.

Now I'll remind you, as I have in the past, remember God loves you
and so do I. "


and Peace River Basin Board are
unchanged. School Board millage
decreases from 7,923 to 7.663.
Finally, the Indigent Health Care
millage decreases from .3909 to
.3533. Its millage decreases each
year because the tax paying hospi-
tal costs for county residents treat-
ed at Florida Hospital-Wauchula, is
limited by ordinance to a maximum
of $550,000 per year. With more
residences and businesses in the
county, each taxpayer's share is a
little less. Taxes increase also
because the same millage brings in
more money each year because of
property value differences.
Land values and construction
costs have significantly increased,
resulting in overall higher property
values. The TRIM notices (see
sample) tell residents what their
taxes were last year, what they will
be in the coming year if budgets are
approved and what they would
have been (called the roll-back
rate) if public officials had set taxes
to only raise the same amount of
money as last year.
Taxes are broken down among
each taxing authority. Property
owners who have any questions
regarding the values imposed on
their property should first stop by
the Property Appraiser's Office in
Courthouse Annex II on the corer
of Oak Street and U.S. 17 South or

Wauchila Adds Cost


To Code Enforcement


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula officials are getting
determined about enforcing their
code enforcement ordinances.
They are so determined they
unanimously passed four ordi-
nances on first reading on Monday
night adding costs for homeowners
who violate the city's standards.
Now, residents will be asked to pay
the city back for any costs it has to
impose liens on the property and to
clean it up if the property owner
fails to do so.
The four ordinances, all amend-
ments to the city codes Chapter 11,
involve requirements on lot mainte-
nance, unsafe or dilapidated build-
ings, minimum maintenance and
abandoned or non-operative vehi-
cles. It allows the code enforcement
board or officer to arrange for
cleanup of the property with the
property owner paying $100 plus
abatement costs. Liens become a
first lien owed by the property
owner.
In the last week, the city has filed
three petitions to foreclose code
liens and take possession of the
property. After the property is
cleaned up and sold, outstanding
liens, and other bills such as a mort-
gage are satisfied; then the proper-
ty owner is entitled to any remain-
ing monies.
Because unkempt and overgrown
lots containing rubble, debris and
waste are a menace to the health,
safety and reasonable comfort of
residents, these are prohibited.
Waste weeds or nuisance plants
over six inches on residential lots,
lots not cleared or which have con-
struction debris or yard trash which
can harbor rats or snakes or collects
water as breeding grounds for dis-
ease-bearing insects, paper, wood
scraps, cardboard, glass, rubber and
discarded household appliances on
the property are all prohibited.
Buildings which are unsafe
because of a lack of maintenance or
damage by weather, fire, vandalism
or other conditions also present a
health and safety risk to residents.
When electric, gas, mechanical or
plumbing systems are not fixed,
they add to the risks as do sagging
doors, windows and roofs which
provide access to trespassers and

Life is a succession of lessons
which must be lived to be
understood.

vagrants. All these are prohibited
by city ordinance and can result in
the building being condemned.
Minimum maintenance standards
are similar. Anything which can
cause danger, injury or death can be
a violation, such as an abandoned
well or appliance, or unsafe fences
or structures because the founda-
tions, walls, windows, doors, gut-
ters, chimneys, porches or stair-
ways need to be maintained free of
holes, rotted materials, or other
damage and kept in good condition.
Finally, accumulation and stor-
age of inoperative vehicles, an
excessive number of vehicles, or
vehicle parts or junk also create
hazards and are prohibited.
In each case, the property owner
is notified and given time to correct
whatever problem exists. Failure to
do so could result of imposition of
liens, and eventual loss of the prop-
erty as foreclosure occurs.
Final reading of the four ordi-
nances assessing extra costs to the
property owner will be heard at the
Sept. 11 Wauchula City Commis-
sion meeting which is held in com-
mission chambers in the old City
Hall, 225 E. Main St., Wauchula.

Nutrition Notes


Q: At a fast food restaurant, is
it better to eat chicken nuggets or
a burger?
A: The answer to your question
depends in part on how large a
burger you have in mind. A portion
of five to six chicken nuggets is
comparable to a small hamburger in
inany ways. The two choices are
about equal in protein and choles-
,terol-raising fats, including saturat-
ed and trans fats, although the
nuggets contain 20 to 50 fewer
calories. When compared to a "dou-
ble" or quartei-pound size burger,
however, the chicken nuggets are
much lower in calories and choles-
terol-raising fat.
Sodium is another variable you
should consider. The sodium con-
tent in chicken nuggets varies wide-
ly. Some have less than a fast food
hamburger loaded with condiments,
but others are just as high. If you
use a dipping sauce other than
honey with your nuggets, however,
you lose any sodium advantage.
Instead of chicken nuggets or a
hamburger, a healthier option is a
grilled (unbreaded) chicken sand-
wich. Although this sandwich
comes with a bun, so its calorie

total may not be as low as the
nuggets, the saturated and trans fats
are only about half as high. To get a
healthy, balanced meal with any of
these options, you need to add veg-
etables and fruits. For example,
order a salad, fresh fruit, or both.
Q: Are there nutritional differ-
ences between different types of
olive oil?
A: All olive oils provide
monounsaturated fat, which is
linked to health benefits. To get the
highest levels of protective plant
compounds that are also in olive oil,
choose "extra virgin" or "virgin"
oils. These are the least processed
forms. Different brands, produced
from olives grown under varying
conditions, may differ in their lev-
els of plant compounds or phyto-
chemicals, but all extra virgin or
virgin oils are good choices. Olive
oil labeled "pure" is high in health-
ful monounsaturated fat, but it has
lost protective plant compounds in
refining.
"Light" olive oil is only lighter in
flavor and color, not fat or calorie
content. Although some people may
want light olive oil for baking or
recipes where a robust olive oil fla-
vor is undesirable, so many of the
protective phytochemicals have
been removed during refining that
canola oil could be a healthier alter-
native. Canola oil provides some
omega-3 fat and more vitamin E.
Q: I became a vegetarian to
lose weight, but I'm not losing
any. Why?
A: Vegetarian eating can be a
very nutritious way to eat, but it's
not an automatic ticket to weight
loss. To lose weight, you've got to
eat fewer calories than you burn.
Regular exercise is an important
part of helping you burn calories,
but you also need to consider
whether the foods you eat are too
concentrated in calories. Many of
the foods vegetarians eat for protein
instead of meat such as legumes,
nuts, seeds and cheese are actually
higher in calories than lean meat.
These foods are important, but.you
need to balance them with plenty of
low-calorie vegetables.
Look at what you drink, too. Soft
drinks aren't the only beverages
with a lot of calories. Juices, sweet-
ened milk and sweetened, flavored,
alternative milk drinks, like some
soymilks, can really push your calo-
rie totals up. You should also con-

sider whether you are eating more
than you need to satisfy your
hunger. Overeating even healthful
food will almost surely promote
excess weight. Studies suggest that
if people consume portions that are
25 percent smaller, they can reduce
their calorie consumption without
feeling hungry.
Q: I know that portion sizes
are important, but do I have to
measure everything I eat? What
do I do when eating out?
A: For many people, changing
the size of their portions is one of
the most significant steps they can
take toward more healthful eating.
Studies show that most of us don't
estimate food portions accurately.
With a little practice, however,
people can improve their accuracy
substantially. You don't need to use
measuring cups.
One trick is to compare food por-
tions to known objects to help esti-
mate how much food is in front of
you. For example, use your hand
size. For the average adult, a round-
ed handful is about a half-cup and a
fist is about one cup.
You can also make portion compar-
isons to other things that you're
'familiar with, like a deck of cards, a
computer mouse, or a checkbook.
All three of these are the same size
as a three-ounce serving of meat,
poultry, or fish, which is considered
one standard serving. An ounce of
cheese also a standard serving looks
like four dice, but you might see
how your thumb or fingers com-
pares to this size for an easy,
always-with-you comparison tool.
Another way that studies show
you can improve your ability to
estimate food portions is simply to
practice. Serve yourself typical por-
tions of foods you normally eat and
measure them. Then scoop out half-
cup, one-cup and:two-cup portions
of the same foods and see how they
look on a plate, in the bowls you
usually use, or in drinking contain-
ers.

Linger At The Library
With Diane Hunt
Director


Story Time-will begin again for 3-5 year-olds on Thursday, Sept. 7, at
10 a.m. with children's library specialist Dee Shackelford. Join her for sto-
ries, crafts and games in this unique program designed to teach love of read-
ing and library usage. Registration is not required.
Our fourth free family reading Prime Time program is scheduled for six
weekson, Tuesday nights, from 5:30 to 7, beginning this coming Tudifay
and co6itinuing until Sept. 26. This extremely popular program for families
with children ages 6 to 10 years old encourages parents and children to read
and discuss humanities topics (history, literature and ethical issues such as
fairness, greed, honor and trickery), all fostering high academic expecta-
tions and achievement for children in low-literacy, low-income families. A
discussion leader and storyteller conduct weekly book discussions. Pre-
reading activities are also provided for younger siblings.
In each 90-minute session, a storyteller demonstrates effective reading
techniques specifically designed to teach not only reading, but also the skill
of reading aloud. Families wishing to participate should pre-register at the
library or call us at 773-6438 for more information.
What's New At The Library?
1.) Remodeling of the library continues. The entire library will have a
new air-conditioning unit. Carpet cannot be installed until this project is
complete. Staff continues to move collections of books for the Youth
Services Room. Shelf movers will relocate the entire children's and young
adult collections to the new location as carpet is laid. The carpeting at the
entrance has been removed in anticipation of a new tile floor. Once our pro-
ject is complete we anticipate expanding hours on weekdays and being open
on Saturday until noon.
2.) Free computer classes continue on Tuesdays from 9 toll a.m. and
11:30 tol:30 p.m. Sign-up sheets are in the library lobby.

SDear Editor,
This is not a political endorse-
ment for or against any of the can-
didates in the four School Boari
races. It is simply food for thought.
Usually in Hardee County politics,
people are voted out-not in, but I
am not aware of any hot topics
Swhicli would call for removal of the
incumbents, so maybe folks can
make objective selections this year
(what a novel approach).
First, consider the mdke-4ip of
the board if all four incumbents
lose. We will have a School Board
with the most experience board
.^L member having two,,,years of expe-
rience. I know from my time on the
board a person needs at least one
full year to understand what is
going on, what the acronyms all
"P mean, who does what and so on (I
PHOTO still don't fully understand the FTE
South formula!). Mrs. Royal has proven
ity of to be an effective member, but she
and is :in the middle of her first term.
rned Mrs. Neuhofer has served approxi-
gives mately 15 months.
.Second, upon reading the plat-
forms of the aspiring candidates, it
is apparent to me that few of them
understand the role of a School
Board member. Listed below are
) the statutory duties of a board
member in much abbreviated form.
th the I would suggest all candidates read
such a these and understand what is
fight- required of them and what their

Bulldogs face hurdles


despite the University of Georgia's proximity to Atlanta, it
won't be easy for the Bulldogs to return there to defend
their Southeastern Conference championship.
Atlanta served as the Bulldogs' base of operations for the final
three games of the 2005 season as they defeated Georgia Tech in
the regulkr-season finale and beat LSU 34-14 in the conference
championship game before falling to West Virginia 3s-35 in the
relocated Sugar Bowl. The Bulldogs will hase to continue their"
dominance of Tennessee and avoid two major stumbling blocks in
rivals Florida and Auburn to earn their fourth Eastern Division
championship in the last five years.
Mark Richt has the best record of any Georgia head coach after
five seasons, but is a combined 3-7 against tihe Tigers and Gators.
Georgia Bulldogs
SHead Coach: Mark Richt (52-13). m 2005 Record: 10-3 (6-2
SEC East). I Key Returnees: RB Thomas Brown, RB Kregg
Lumpkins, RB Brannan Southerland, C Nick Jones, T Daniel
hInan, K Brandon Coutu, DE Quentinl Moses, LB Brandon
Miller, LB Jarvis Jackson, S Tra Battle, P Gordon Ely-Kelsd.
* Key Losses: QB D.J: Shockley, WR Bryan McClendon, TE
Leonard Pope, G Max Jean-Gilles, T Dentis Roland. DT Gerald
Anderson, DT Kedric Golston, DE Will Tlompson, CB Tim
Jennings, CB DeMario Minter, S Greg Blue. l.Predictio4! 10-2
(6-2 SEC East).
Outlook: The biggest question facing the Bulldogs heading
into the season is at quarterback. Joe Tereshinski, who got the start
in Georgia's 14-10 loss to Florida last season, has been unable to
distance himself from the three other signal-callers in camp. Until
a quarterback and a play-making wide receiver are found, the
running game should carry the team. Defense was hit hard by
losses in the secondary, but the linebacking corps remains intact.
Florida Gators
* Head Coach: Urban Meyer (48-11). it 2005 Record: 9-3 (5-3
SEC East). N Key Returnees: QB Chris Leak, RB DeShawn
Wynn, WR Dallas Baker, WR Jernalle Cornelius, WR Andre
Caldwell, C Steve Rissler, T Drew Miller, DT Marcus Thomas,
DT Steven Harris, LB Brandon Siler, LB Earl Everett, P Eric
Wilbur. a Key Losses: WR Chad Jackson, C Mike Degory, T
Lance Butler, G Tavares Washington, DE Jeremy Mincey, LB
Todd McCullough, CB Vensell Brown, CB Demetrice Webb, S
Jarvis Herring. 5 Prediction: 9-3 (5-3 SEC East).
Outlook: Five seasons have passed since Florida last won an
SEC championship, and assistant head coach Charlie Strong is the
only remaining link from the 2000 team. In addition to a potential
quarterback controversy involving incumbent Chlris Leak and
vaunted freshman Tim Tebow, the schedule is brutal, with
interdivisional games against Alabama, Auburn and LSU.
Tennessee Volunteers
m Head Coach: Phillip Fulmer (128-37). m 2005 Record: 5-6
(3-5 SEC East). 0 Key Returnees: QB Erik Ainge, RB Arian
Foster, WR Jayson Swain, T Arron Sears, K James Wilboit, DT
Justin Harrell, B Jonathan Wade, CB Inquoris Johnson, S
Jonathan Hefiney, S Antwan Stewart, P Britton Colquitt. Key
Losses: QB Rick Clausen, RB Gerald Riggs, WR C.J. Fayton.
WR Chris Hannon, G Cody Douglas, C Richie Gandy, G Rob
Smith, T Albert Toeaina, DE Jason Hall. DE Parys Haralson, DT
Jesse Mahelona, LB Kevin Simon, CB Jason Allen.
Prediction: 9-3 (5-3 SEC East).
Outlook: Phillip Fulmer brought back former Ole Miss head
coach David Cutcliffe, who served as tise Volunteers' offensive


coordinator from 1993-98, to revitalize a stagnant attack.
Quarterback Erik Ainge completed only 45.5 percent of his passes
last season and the ground game rtaked only ninth in the
conference in rushing yards. Having to replace the majority of the
defensive front seven will put even more pressure on Cutcliffe and
the offense.
South Carolina Gamecocks
* Head Coach: Steve Spurrier (149-45-2). a 2005 Record: 7-5
(5-3 SEC East). 0 Key Returnees: QB Blake Mitchell, RB Mike
Davis, WR Sidney Rice, WR/KR Kenny McKinley, WR/DB
Syvelle Newton, C Chris White, T Jamon Meredith, DE Jordin
Lindsey, DT Stanley Doughty, CB Fred Bennett. a Key Losses:
RB Daccus Turman, WR Kris Clark, TE Carson Askins, OL
Nu'Shan Goddard. T Jabari Levey, G Freddy Saint-Preux, K Josh
Brown, DE Orus Lambert, LB Ricardo Hurley. LB Lance Laury,
LB Dustin Lindsey, S Ko Simpson, S Tremnsine Tyler, P Josh
Brown. 0 Prediction: 7-5 (4-4 SEC East).
Outlook: After starting Steve Spurrier's first season in
Columbia at 2-3; the Gamecocks won five consecutive conference
games. South Carolina lost its final two games of the 2005
campaign, but there were plenty of encouraging signs for Spurier.
The combination of quarterback Blake Mitchell and wide receiver
Sidney Rice hooked up 70 times for 1.143 yards and 13
touclidowns. The return of running back Cory Boyd, who was
suspended lust season, should bolster the offense.
Kentucky Wildcats
Head Coach: Rich Brooks (100-134-4). a 2005 Record: 3-8
-(2-6 SEC East). Key Returnees: QB Andre Woodson, QB/WR
Curtis Pulley, RB/KR Rafael Little, TE Jacob Tammne. G Michael
Aitcheson, C Malt McCutchan, T Hayden Lane, DE Durrell
White, DT Jason Leger, LB Joe Schuler, LB Braxton Kelley, LB
Wesley Woodyard, CB Bo Smith, S Roger Williams, PTim
Masthay. Key Losses: RB Arliss Beach. WR Glenn Holt. WR
Scott Mitchell, K Taylor Begley, DT Trey Mielsch. DE B. Jay
Parsons, CB Antoine Huffinu, S Muhammnad Abdullah.
a Prediction: 4-8 (2-6 SEC East).
a Outlook: The Wildcats were woeful on both sides of the ball
last season, ranking 107th nationally in total offense and 103rd in
total defense. Look for opposing defenses to key on running back
Rafael Little, who surpassed the'1.000-yard rushing mark in 2005
and served as the team's leading receiver. Seven starters return to
a defensive unit that yielded 31 or more points seven times last
season.
Vanderbilt Commodores
a Head Coach: Bobby Johnson (71-71). 0 2005 Record: 5-6 (3-5
SEC East). x Key Returnees: RB Cassen Jackson-Garrison, FB
Steven Bright. WR/KR Earl Bennett, WR Marion White, T Chris
Williams, G Josh Eames. T Brian Stamper, K Bryant Hahnfeldt,
DT Tleo Horrocks, DE Chris Booker, LB Kevin Joyce. LB
Jonathan Goff, CB Josh Allen. S Reshard Langford. 0 Key
Losses: QB Jay Cutler. WR Erik Davis, TE Dustin Dunning, C
Trey Holloway. DE Herdley Harrison. DT Ralph McKenzie, LB
Moses Osemnwegie, CB Andrew Pace. S Kelechi Ohanaja.
N Prediction: 4-8 (1-7 SEC East).
a Outlook: With road games at Michigan and Alabama to start
the season, life without Jay Cutler should prove to be difficult for
the Conmmodores. There are plenty of playmnakers returning on the
offensive side of the ball, which should ease sophomore Chris
Nickson's transition into the starting role. The defense will be hurt
by the loss of lip!ebackcr Moses Osemwegie.

PART ONE: COASTAL DIVISION
Season Preview


Hokies r(

Atlantic Coast Conference play, Virginia Tech was
favored for two straight title when it traveled to
Jacksonville last December to face Florida State in the
inaugural league championship game.
Florida State was the longtime standard-bearer of the ACC, and
:he one team the Hokies had not yet played since moving over
from the Big East. The Seminoles had cost Virginia Tech the
national championship in 1999 with a 46-29 victory in the Sugar
Bowl, and who better to avenge the greit Michael Vick than his
younger brother. Marcus.
Getting slammed to the ground on six sacks didn't stop Marcus
Vick from throwing for 335 yards and running for a pair of scores,
but Florida State still claimed its 12th conference championship in
14 years by holding on for a 27-22 win.
Instead of playing in a BCS bowl, the Hokies were relegated to
:he Gator Bowl tnd a return trip to Alltel Stadium. While Virginia
Tech enjoyed some redemption with a 35-24 win over Louisville
:o close out an 11-win season, Vick was left to explain his second-
quarter stomp on Louisville defensive end Elvis Dumervil.
Frank Beamer and school officials lhad lad it with Vick, who
vas suspended for die 2004 season due to legal problems and was
caught making obscene gestures to fans at West Virginia earlier in
the 2005 campaign. An apology couldn't save Vick, and the
Hokies liow have to rely onil redshirt sophomore Scan Glennon
under center.
Virginia Tech Hokies
E Head Coach: Frank Beamer (188-102-4). 0 2005 Record:
11-2 (7-1 ACC Coastal). Key Returnees: RB Branden Ore.
WR Eddie Royal, WR David Clowney, T Duane Brown, C Danmly
McGrath, K Brandon Pace, DE Chris Ellis. LB Vince Hall. LB
Xavier Adibi, S Aaron Rouse. P Nic Schmitt. U Key Losses: QB
Marcus Vick. RB Cedric Humes. TE Jeff King, G/C Will
Montgomery, T Jimmy Martin, G Jason Murphy, DT Jonathan
Lewis, DE Darryl Tapp, LB James Anderson, CB Jimmy
Williams. o Prediction: 10-2 (6-2 ACC Coastal).
i Outlook: QB Sean Glennon should be able to ease into the
starting role. since the first four games are far from challenging.
Branden Ore ran for 647 yards and six touchdowns last season,
and the top three receivers are all back. Defense and trademark
special teams play could have the Hokies back in a BCS bowl.
Miami Hurricanes
Head Coach: Larry Coker (53-9). 0 2005 Record: 9-3 (6-2
ACC Coastal). 0 Key Returnees: QB Kyle Wright, RB Tyrone
Moss. RB Charlie Jones, WR Ryan Moore. TE Greg Olsen. C
Anthony Wollschlager, K Jon Peattie. DE Baraka Atkins. LB Jon
Season, S Kenny Phillips, S Brandon Merriweather, P Brian
Monroe. M Key Losses: RB Quadtrine Hill, WR Sinorice Moss. G
Tony Tella, T Eric Winston, G Tyler McMeans. DE Javon
Nanton, DE Thomas Carroll, LB Rocky Mclntosh, CB Kelly
lennings, KR Devin Hester. 8 Prediction: 11-1 (7-1 ACC
Coastal).
Outlook: Larry Coker couldn't have asked for a better
beginning to his career as a college head coach: a national
championshipp in his first season in 2001 and four Big East
championshipss before the Hurricanes moved to tie ACC. But,
Coker is on the hot seat thanks to back-to-back 9-3 seasons and
consecutivee Peach Bowl trips. Anything less than a trip to the
conferencee championship game could warrant a change.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
I Head Coach: Chan Gailey (52-33). 2005 Record: 7-5 (5-3

Choice, WR Calvin Johnson, T Andrew Gardner, C Kevin

Gerris Wilkinson, S Dawan Landry, S Chris Reis. I Prediction:
9-3 (6-2 ACC Coastal).
N Outlook: The hit-and-miss play of Reggie Ball over the past
three years has prevented Georgia Tech from moving into the
upper echelon of the conference. Everything is in place for Ball to
flourish in his senior season. Calvin Johnson was named the
conference's preseason Player of the Year, and four starters return
to the offensive line.
North Carolina Tar Heels
Head Coach: John Bunting (62-50-2). 1 2005 Record: 5-6
(4-4 ACCCoastal). U Key Returnees: RB Ronnic McGill, RB
Barrington Edwards, WR Jesse Holley. T Brian Chacos, G
Charleston Gray, K Connor Bartl, DE Brian Rackley, DT Shelton
Bynum, LB Durell Mapp, LB Larry Edwards, CB Jacoby
Watkins, S Trimane Goddard, S Kareen Taylor, P David
Wooldridge. Key Losses: QB Matt Baker, WR Mike Mason,
WR Jarwarski Pollock, C Steven Bell, T Skip Seagraves, G Kyle
Ralph, DE Tommy Davis, DT Chase Page, LB Tommy
Richardson. Prediction: 6-6 (3-5 ACC Coastal).
Outlook: Joe Dailey, who set numerous school passing
records as a Nebraska sophomore in 2004, appears to be locked in
a battle with redshirt freshman Cam Sexton to replace Matt Baker
at quarterback. Giving either Dailey or Sexton time to find wide
receiver Jesse Holley, and keeping Ronnie McGill healthy are the
keys to bowl qualification.
Virginia Cavaliers
Head Coach: Al Groh (63-66). n 2005 Record: 7-5 (3-5 ACC
Coastal). I Key Returnees: WR Deyon Williams, TE Jonathan
Stupar, TE Tom Santi, G Marshal Ausberry, G Branden Albert.
DE Chris Long, LB Jennaine Dias, LB Clint Sintim, CB Marcus
Hamilton. S Tony Franklin. K/P Chris Gould. 0 Key Losses: QB
Marques Hagans, RB Wali Lundy, T D'Brickashaw Ferguson, T
Brad Butler, C Brian Barthelmes, K Connor Hughes, DE Brennan
Schmidt, DE Vince Redd, LB Ahmad Brooks, LB Kai Parham.
9 Prediction: 7-4 (4-4 ACC Coastal).
Outlook: Christian Olsen takes over for Marques Hagans
behind center, and he has three dependable targets in Deyon
Williams and the tight end combination of Jonathan Stupar and
Tom Santi. The Cavaliers' biggest concern is replacing three-
fifths of their offensive line, including the fourth overall pick in
the NFL Draft D'Brickashaw Ferguson.

Duke Blue Devils
Head Coach: Ted Roof (5-22). n 2005 Record: 1-10 (0-8
ACC Coastal). [ Key Returnees: RB Justin Boyle. RB Ronnie
Drunmer, C Matt Rumsey, T Cameron Goldberg, DE Eli Nichols,
DT Casey Camero, DE Patrick Bailey, LB Michael Tauiliili, CB
John Talley, CB Deonto McCormick. S Chris Davis. U Key
Losses: QB Zack Asack, QB Mike Schneider, TE Ben Patrick, TE
Andy Roland, G Jim Moravchik, G Tyler Krieg, T Lavdrim Bauta
DE Phillip Alexander. LB Brendan Dewan, S Brian Greefie.
Prediction: 2-10 (0-8 ACC Coastal).
Outlook: The Blue Devils' strengths lie on the defensive
side of the ball. Fifth-year senior Eli Nichols leads a trio of
returning starters on the defensive line, while John Talley and
Chris Davis will hold down the secondary.

WEATHER SUMMARY
SDaily showers dropped from traces to nearly four inches of rain during
August 6 through 13. Minimal rains have not eased drought conditions with
wild land fires sparked in some southern Peninsula localities. Most stations
reported under an inch of rain for the week. Areas receiving over an inch of
precipitation included Dover, Homestead, Jay, Miami and Okahumpka.
Fort Lauderdale received over three inches. Quincy received nearly four
inches. Temperatures in major cities average around normal to three
degrees above normal. Daytime highs ranged from the lower to upper 90s.
Evening lows were in the 60s and 70s.

FIELD CROPS
Continuous lack of precipitation is damaging several field crops in the
Panhandle and northern Peninsula localities. Growers need substantial rains
to elevate topsoil moisture supplies. Drought conditions have resulted in
almost no pecan crop, with growers indicating a very low nut set for the
year in Jefferson County. Most of the cotton crop in the Panhandle is suf-
fering immensely and will not recover from the drought. Some cotton has
shown early flowering in Jefferson County. Some peanuts in parts 'of
Jackson County are in excellent condition with scattered rains improving
the peanut condition. Ninety-eight percent of the peanuts are pegged com-
pared with one hundred percent pegged last year and the five-year average
of ninety-nine percent. Despite recent rain relieving drought in some fields,
hay will be in short supply this year since fifty percent of the crop has
already been lost to the drought in some Panhandle areas, Hay cutting is
spotty and delayed due to localized showers in parts of Jefferson County.
Topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies across the State are rated mostly short
to-adequate. Marion and Dade counties reported short to surplus moisture
supplies.

VEGETABLES ,
Rainfall delayed some fall crop preparation in the central and southern'
Peninsula localities. Fall tomato and watermelon growers in Washington
County have completed plantings. Okra harvesting continues active in
Dade County.

-. LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES' .
In the Panhandle, drought continues to negatively impact pasture con-
dition, which is mostly in poor to fair condition. In Jefferson County, cattle
are spending much time' in shade rather than grazing. The length of the
drought has severely, lowered the pasture condition in this area. In'
Washington County, recent rains helped improve pastures and the hay crop.
In the north and Big Bend areas, pasture condition is mostly fair to good.
Pasture in the central area is fair to.good. In the southwest, pasture condi-
tion ranges from very poor to good as weather has been drier. Statewide,
cattle condition ranges from poor to excellent. Cattle in the Panhandle and.
north are mostly in fair condition and those in the central and south are
mostly fair to good with some cattle in excellent condition.

CITRUS
Citrus producing counties' recorded uncharacteristically dry weather
for this time of year. Less than a half inch of rain was recorded in many of
the monitored stations. Hot temperatures prevailed in all localities', with
daytime highs averaging in the mid to high 90s. Sebring reported one day-
time high at 98 degrees. Growers are irrigating due to insufficient rain and
hot weather, attempting to keep the new crop on the trees in good condition.
Fruit sizes are still being reported as variable, with early and mid oranges
larger than golf-ball size, and grapefruit as large as baseball size. Many
small sizes are also being found on healthy trees. Activity in the groves is
limited and includes primarily applications of summer oils, cleaning ditch-
es, fertilizing, mowing and irrigation. Some of the larger groves that have
the ability to irrigate regularly are resetting new trees.


Mosaic Wins Men's Tourney


Look for the obvious; if you find something else, they will name it
after you.
Dr. Brock admitted he still has.the faded restaurant receipt. The
thoughts written.on it were geared toward humor,-but they seemed to
make more sense with every year he practiced.
Dr. Brock received a diploma in Chicago that qualifies him as a Board
Certified Equine Veterinarian Specialist, a feat that only 84 people (as of
January 2006) have been able to accomplish. He wondered if his study in
Claredon and the notes scribbled on the back of a restaurant receipt
taught him more.
Even though Dr. Deyhle was speaking to a young man about veteri-
nary practice, I think these proverbs that came from a wise old veteri-
narian in Claredon, Texas, could apply to almost anybody.

REMINISCING

WITH

DR. BO BROCK

B y:Dr. Ross A.

Hendry,:DVM .S
Dr. Hendry
Wetry not to plagiarize when we write our articles, but every now and
then I run across something so good it seems like a shame not to pass it
on, sowe are-very careful, at this time, to give credit to Dr. Bo Brock from
Lamesa, Texas.
Dr. Brock writes articles in the DVM Magazine, which is a monthly
veterinary newspaper journal published each month. His article in the
July 2006 issue was written not long after he had passed his board eerti-
fication as a Equine Veterinary Specialist. In this article Dr. Brock was
reflecting on where he learned the most and if it was his years of practice,
studying for the board certification or interning for two years in
Claredon, Texas, with the wonderful 68-year old Dr. Chuck Deyhle who
had 40 years of practice experience.
When I was in the Academy of Veterinary Consultants I had the plea-
sure of meeting Dr. Deyhle and appeared on a couple of discussion nation-
al meeting panels with him and as an expert witness in a court case in
Muskogee, Oklahoma. I always felt like I was sitting at the feet of God.
Dr. Brock tells, with humor and wisdom how he graduated from a vet
school that had all the modern technology and every possible piece of
diagnostic equipment available. When he arrived in Claredon, he thought
he had stepped back into the cave-man days.
Dr. Chuck Deyhle told the fledgling veterinarian when he had gradu-
ated from vet school 40 years before, a well-equipped veterinarian had a
lariat rope and a bottle of topical sulfa drugs.
In vet school Dr. Brock described how they would put on scrubs, ster-
ile gloves, cap, mask and gown then scrub for six minutes for anything
that might turn into serious surgery. He learned that in Clarendon every-
body knew there was a serious surgery about to take place when Dr.
Deyhle stripped down to his undershirt. However, after his two year stint
with dr. Deyhle he admitted he had learned the art of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Brock spent his last day in Claredon with Dr. Deyhle at a feedyard,
which entailed a two-hour drive. He was Dr. Deyhle's biggest fan by then
and asked for any additional nuggets of knowledge, and he scribbled them
down on the back of a restaurant receipt:
Never deodorize a skunk.
Always leave a small crawl hole when dealing with clients.
IPractice for a good reason.
Above all, do no harm.
Spend time with people.
The only difference between humor and tragedy is who it happens
to.
Learn to laugh at yourself, and don't ever take yourself too serious-
ly.
Perception is reality.when it comes to clients.
Count your successes and don't dwell on your failures.
Avoid professional menopause.
You can always spot pioneers because they will have arrows in their
fannies.

cey and soph Kirsti Roehm.,
The Wildcat schedule was not
complete at press time. For August,

He came to isee .me one
morning, suffering from bottle

you let the Lord snap your trap?"
"If He only would he sobbed.
"He would," I said, "if you'd turn
to Him with all your; heart. He
promises, 'I will end your slavery
and restore your fortunes.'"
"I'll turn," he answered. Weep-
ing, he called on the Lord and was
beautifully converted.
Do you feel trappedi;by, some
emotion or evil? Trust in the Lord.
He'll snap your trap!,

History: Hardee Hurricanes


By SPESSARD STONE
For The Herald-Advocate
Editor's note: Prior to Charley, Frances and Jeanne in August and
September 2004, we had Donna on Sept. 10, 1960, but, also, others, of
which I here relate two minor unnamed storms.
Tropical Storm Did Light Damage Here
Sept. 26, 1945 Wauchula and Hardee County emerged from the trop-
ical storm which visited South Florida late Saturday afternoon and Sunday
with a minimum loss, and thus was principally citrus fruit blown from the
trees. Avon Park and Sebring, west of us, suffered considerably when trees
were uprooted and fruit blown from the trees ...
In Wauchula the light company suffered the loss of several poles and
electricity was cut off for several hours, while some sections of the city did
not get electricity until Monday. Trees and limbs were blown across the dri-
ves and short currents caused considerable trouble ...
The greatest damage here was the electric lines, which threw the city
into darkness during the early hours Sunday morning. A few trees were
blown down and shrubbery. The stucco on the west side of the J.W. Earnest
& Company's building was loosened by the rain and great sheets of it fell
into the street...
Hurricane Wipes Out Young Vegetable Crop In County;
Citrus Loss Small In Area
Sept. 19, 1947 For the first time in years The Florida Advocate is late
in reaching its subscribers this week due to conditions and circumstances of
which we had no control. Blame it on the hurricane which visited this sec-
tion Wednesday night and put this city's electric light and power system out
of commission and threw the city in darkness. It was partially restored at
noon Thursday, but it was not dependable. We expect to have the papers in
the post office early Friday morning.

The storm originated in the South Atlantic about a week ago and
moved slowly northwest .,,idl opposite Palm Beach and then turned west,
striking near Fort Lauderdale and cutting across the state, entering the Gulf
below Fort Myers.
In the City of Wauchula no heavy damage is reported. The electric lines
were down in some sections, a few trees were blown down and tree limbs
were scattered along the streets and sidewalks.
Citrus suffered a small loss in Hardee County though it is impossible
to attempt to estimate the loss; it is not expected to be heavy. The vegetable
crop was practically wiped out by the heavy rains and winds; the cukes and
eggplants were just getting started good and it looked as though there
would be a large yield. The farmers were very optimistic. Most of the farm-
ers are planning to plant again.
The electricity was cut off in Wauchula about 11:00 o'clock
Wednesday night when the wires were blown down and in order to prevent
accident or fires, the electricity was cut off. The city electricians were on
the job early Thursday morning and worked like Trojans to restore the
power. The telephone company also suffered damage when trees in the rural
sections fell across the lines; some poles were also blown down.
All schools in the county were closed Wednesday at noon to permit the
students to get home ahead of the hurricane.
Highway Patrolman Miller picked up a broadcast sent out by his
department Thursday morning, stating that Punta Gorda and Fort Myers
were badly hurt by the storm.
Cuke Crop In County Wiped Out By Rains
Sept. 26, 1947 90 Percent Of Pepper And Eggplants Also Hard Hit
Authorities in the latest survey of the damage of the hurricane which r
visited this section on Wednesday night of last week are of the opinion that
the vegetable crop, especially the cukes, is a complete loss. There is likeli-
hood, however, the farmers who have peppers and eggplants will be able to
save a portion of their crop. The heavy rains incident to the blow which vis-
ited South Florida on Monday night added to the loss of the vegetable
crops. Rain fell in torrents early Monday evening and a light rain continued
throughout the night.
Damage to the citrus crop as a whole was slight. A small portion of the
grapefruit was blown off the trees, but the oranges held very well ...
The greatest damage in Wauchula was in the residential section where
the wind played havoc with trees and shrubbery.
On account of the heavy rain, which inundated several of the county
roads and washed out bridges, the school board ordered the schools closed
for several days ...
Spessard Stone is currently working on a history of Hardee County, with
tentative publication in December 2006. He would welcome photos and
information on churches, civic organizations, county officers and African
American churches, citizens, and the Lillian Brown school. Stone can be
reached after 5 p.m. at 773-2275 or spessard44@earthlink.net.

Men's League Ends

With Weekend Tourney


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
By putting an extra evening of
games on the schedule, the 2006
Men's City Softball League fin-
ished up last week.
That enable themito head into an
all-day double-elimination post-
season tournament on Saturday..
Teams of both divisions battled
until late afternoon to get a winner
declared.
Obvious advantage went to The
Regulators, winners of Division I
and the only team with a 12-1
record. It's only loss was Aug. 1 to
Nicholson's Supply Co. as interdi-
vision play began.
Most of the season teams played
within their'divisions. Behind the
Regulators in Division I were
Mosaic Phosphates and Mid-
Florida Credit Union, each at 9-3.
Gomez Tree/Debris Removal and
Robert Flores & Sons were also
tied.
Nicholson's finished in the top
spot in Division II with a 9-4
record. Merrill Lynch was next at
7-6 and the Peace River Electric
Cooperative Inc. (PRECo) was


close behind at 6-7. Florida Fence
Post and The Krew rounded out the
Division II standings.
In the last two weeks of play,
there were some very close encoun-
ters. For instance, on Aug. 1, Flores
nipped The Krew 22-21. On Aug.
3, both Field 3'games were single-
run victories, when The Regulators
barely beat PRECo- 16-15 and
Nicholson's edged Gomez 6-5.
In games on Aug. 8, the only
tight game was PRECo's 12-11 win
over Nicholson's. In makeup
games on Aug. 7, the Field 4 games
were close. At 6:45 PRECo downed
Flores 16-14 and at 8:15 Merrill
Lynch slipped past Gomez 18-15.
The final regular season games
were last Thursday, when The
Krew hopped past Gomez 18-8 in
the first Field 3 game and Merrill
Lynch nipped Mosaic 16-15 in the
nightcap. Meanwhile, over on Field
4, the final games of the season had
The Regulators outscoring Fence
Post 22-7 and Nicholson's knock-
ing Flores 19-4.
Failing to plan is planning to
fail.

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Advocate,
the Hardee County Herald and
TheHerald-Advocate of...

75 YEARS AGO
Wildcats Schedule 10 Football
Games: Ten football games will
compose the schedule of the 1931
edition of the Wauchula Wildcats
local high school football team. The
tentative schedule, announced
today by City School Supervisor
John M. Crowell, includes nine
games already booked for definite
dates and one open- date in the 10-
game schedule.
Several new teams are to appear
on the Wildcats' 1931 menu,
including Clearwater and Sarasota..
The season will open in Wauchula
on Sept. 25 with the Wildcats meet-
ing Lake Wales here. The following
week Wauchula meets, Winter
Haven, but the location of thisngame
has iot been determined. Oct. 9 is
an open date, but this likely will be
filled, before the season is under
way.

Fine Country Home Sold To
Arcadia Man: One of the finest
places in Hardee County, the old
Steve Roberts home two miles east
of Zolfo Springs, changed hands
last week, being sold to Charlie
Anderson, of Arcadia. The deal was
handled by J.G. Anderson, of the
Anderson Realty Company, and the
property sold includes a modem 10-
ropm country home, with modern
conveniences, 60 acres of land, and
20 acres in grove.
On the same day this deal was
closed Mr. Anderson sold a house in
Wauchula on South' Seventh
Avenue to J.A. Anderson. Strangely'
enough, none: of the Andersons
mentioned are related and Mr.
Aniderson says he has never sold
any property to a man named
Anderson before in his life, and all
the deals were made on the same
day.

:City Council To Issue Booklet On
Wauchula:'At a meeting of the city
council held last Friday night, city
officials agreed to have 2,500 book-
lets printed for free distribution for
those interested in this section. The
booklets will be printed by. the
Advocate and will be ready for ci'.r-
culatibn -'nit week. ih 'Tidviaitag
of Wauchula;'a, bbIf a wiiiterresoirt
and a plade to live will be dis-
cussed.
Those wishing copies of this
booklet' should apply or write to


City Clerk W.G. Hays. They will be
sent to any address in the United
States or Canada free of charge.
This is the first booklet that the city
has issued for publication in several
years.

50 YEARS AGO
r'ctured on the front page of the
A",. 17, 1956 issue of The Herald
Advocate is H. T. Shultz of Fort
Green, who is posing with his chief
assistant and the hide of a seven-
foot, six-inch rattle snake that he
caught recently in Polk County.
Shultz and his little dog, which
trails and bays rattlers, captured the
snake alive but it later died of
injuries.
"It was a mean one and I had to
handle it roughly to keep it from
biting me," Shultz explains. It
broke off a fang striking a forked
stick that he uses to pin down
snakes that won't respond to his
soothing conversation. Shultz
makes his living catching and sell-
ing reptiles.

Jet Planes To Stunt At Bartow: A
spectacular 20-minute supersonic
air show by the' Thunderbirds, a
special solo feature flight in an F-86
by the Air Force's chief test pilot,
parade of AF Academy cadets and
the first official appearance of Miss
Florida of 1956 since her election,
all await thousands of spectators at
Bartow Air Base Aug. 18 in phase-
out ceremonies for the T-6 Texan.
Long the workhorse of the Air
Force's training program, the T-6
Texan will give way to progress as
student pilots takes to the air in the
last mission for the USAF trainer at
9 a.m. Aug. 18th. This plane has
been used to train more pilots than
any plane in the history of aviation
and became an all-important spotter
for the jets in the rugged terrain of
Korea during the Korean conflict.

Medics Winners Of Champion-
ship: In a spine-tingling, extra-
inning game Saturday morning at
Farr Field, the Wildcats' Medic
Team, sponsored by Dr. Collier,
won the Eaton's Department Store
trophy, symbolic of the Interme-
diate League tournament champi-
onship.
As play started, both teams
showed signs of nervousness and at.
the end of twoi iinii6s'Fort Green
,.,was'ahead 6-5. In the fourth inning,
Bill Bryan relieved captain Dewey
Terrell of the pitching chores after
Fort Green had gone ahead 8-5.
However, from the fourth inning
through the eight, Bryan struck out


12 batters as he threw the ball by his
opponents, allowing no hits and no
runs.

25 YEARS AGO
Sunday Beer Sales Illegal In
Wauchula: A local bar caused quite
a stir Sunday when its owner, taking
advantage of the uncertainty sur-
rounding a new Wauchula ordi-
nance, opened for business and sold
beer all day long. Wauchula police,
no longer sure of what the law actu-
ally was, refrained from making an
arrest as Elton Cowart, owner of the
Amble Inn, kept his 'bar open from
6 a.m. to midnight selling beer.
Police Chief Raleigh Lowe said
his men did not arrest Cowart
because he though the city was
being set up for a false arrest suit.
He was under the impression that
the' state ordinance prohibited the
selling of beer on Sunday, Lowe
also thought that the state law was
now superseded by the city's new
ordinance so it no longer applied.
He said the city attorney had left out
the prohibition against selling beer
on Sunday.

DER Fines Zolfo $100 A Day
Due To Water In Garbage Dump:
The state Department of
Environmental Regulations (DER)
began last Thursday fining Zolfo
Springs $100 a day for violation of
its consent order for its garbage
dump. In an effort to show DER the
town was cooperating, Monday
night the council approved closing
the dump immediately and bringing
the brush to the Wauchula dump.
Zolfo was already bringing its
garbage to Wauchula but it was
putting brush in a 20 to 25-foot
deep pit that had water standing in it
at the old town dump. Council
Chairman Wendell Batey sad one
DER representative looked at the
Zolfo dump on Tuesday of last
week and said it looked a lot better,
but they had to get the water out.

Training, Record Keeping
Serious Grand Jury Issues:
Although there has been much talk
about financial recommendations of
the grand jury, there are some more
serious issues in the report that have
not been aired. These issues revolve
around the operation of the
Wauchula Police Department, its
traini.ng,gogramjolicy for keep-
ing records and jpperation with,
other police agencies.
The responsibility for the depart-
ment lies with one man, Raleigh
Lowe, who has been police chief
for the past 11 1/2 years. In general,


WayBak he


are Labrador retrievers, along with
some golden retrievers, Australian
shepherds, short-hair collies and a


few German shepherds. The wait-
ing list to receive a dog free of
charge is about 18 months.


Lowe is defensive about the report.
He does not agree with most of the
grand jury's findings and feels
much of the criticism is unwarrant-
ed. "If they (the grand jury) look
into other police departments, I
think they would find them in worse
shape than the Wauchula Police
Department," he said.

10 YEARS AGO
Democrats Host Local Political
Rally: Are there so many candidates
you feel like resorting to the draw-
ing-names-from-a-hat method of
selection? Don't! Voters can gather
valuable information to make edu-
cated choices at the polls by attend-
ing part or all of a rally and forum
for Democratic candidates this
weekend.
Sponsored by the Hardee County
Democratic Party, the event will be
held on Saturday at the Agri-Civic
Center on Altman Road in
Wauchula. It will run for about
eight hours, from 1 to 8:35 p.m. The
highly-organized event provides for
separate time slots for each county
race. Formats, too, will differ, with
some speeches and other questions
and answers, State Committee-
woman Nancy Dick explained.

Twins, 12, Receive Sentence:
Twelve-year-old twin girls who
spent recent holiday weekends
stealing cars and joy-riding will
now be spending time apart and in
counseling. Launa and Lauren
Hooten, of Waiuchula, appeared in
Hardee Juvenile Court on Thursday
before Acting Circuit Court Judge
R. Earl Collins. Earlier they had
pleaded no contest to grand theft
charges for taking a car and going
on a three-day lark in it during the
Memorial Day weekend.
They pulled the same stunt again
over the July 4 holiday, even while.
on detention awaiting a final ruling
in the first incident. Following the
recommendations from the state
Department of Juve~tile Justice,.
Collins ordered the girls into'Leel'"
4 commitment. That is a moderate
risk, restrictive level where they
will be placed in a home/family
environment with other youngsters.

MENDING YOUR MARRIAGE PART IV
14. Love always trusts. You must trust your mate. Your mate must
trust you in your marriage. If you do something to hurt that trust, it will take
a long time to repair, boih of you must work toward complete trust again.
It may be hard for you to let go, but you must if your marriage is 'to suc-
ceed.
15. Love always perseveres. You made a commitment to your mar-
riage; now work it. Your vows were for sickness and in health till death you
part. Put that into practice. Of course, if your mate is physically abusive, do
not stay in a relationship that may harm you or your children. Be safe and
seek help for your mate as well as yourself.
16. Love never fails. When you truly love a person, you will love
them no matter if they do not perform up to your expectations. Remember,
no one is perfect. Your petty annoyances with your mate are not worth end-
ing your marriage.
17. Love is faithful.Be faithful to your mate. Have faith in your mate.
If you stray and bring adultery into your marriage, it will destroy your mar-
riage. But even then, if you both are strong in the Lord you can get past it.
With forgiveness, counseling and turning back to God, even adultery can be
forgiven.
18. Hope for the best for your marriage. Fill your marriage with
hope. Read the Word, speak blessings over your marriage, pray every day
for your marriage.
19. Above all love is the key. If you love your mate, everything will
fall into place. Of course, use the things listed above, but if you do not love
your spouse by showing love to them, your marriage will be rocky and
unstable. Find out what love means to your mate. Nurture those things in
your marriage. If it is words of love, speak your love. If it is gifts they need,
bring them gifts. If it is service they desire, help them or-do something nice
for them. Know what your mate needs and meet those needs through love.
A Golden Nugget would be to use these nuggets in all relationships,
but especially to your mate.

When a man comes to me for advice, I find out the kind of advice
he wants, and I give it to him.

Cherry Takes Belts With TKO


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula boxer Edner Cherry
picked up three more belts from his
fight Friday night.
"It was a tough fight; I had to
play smart and use my knowledge
and wisdom. I learn something
from every fight" said Cherry early
this week after returning from
Chester, W.V., where he successful-
ly defended his NABA (North
American Boxing Association) title
and took the vacant NABF (North
American Boxing Federation) title,
along with stealing two belts from
his opponent.
Daniel Alicea, of Camden, N.J.
had put his WBO (World Boxing
Council) and USNBC (U.S.
INational Boxing Council) belts on
the line for the 12-rounder nearly in
his back yard.
"Before we left Tampa, my train-
er, Peter Fernandez, reminded me
that we cannot go in someone's
back yard and win easily. You have
to knock him out or win big on
points. You can't leave it to the
judges, or you have to make their
decision easy." said Cherry.
Friday's 12th-round TKO moved
Cherry up in the sanctioned rank-
ings. He is now 14th in the world,
13th in the WBC and 10th in the
WBA (World Boxing Association)
ranks. He hopes to meet WBA
champion Juan Diaz some time in
the near future.
"I want to thank Wauchula for its
100 percent support. People are
always encouraging me anytime
they see me and it motivates me. I
want to put Wauchula on the map."
There was a lot of pre-game hype
iby ESPN II's Friday Night Fights
:announcers, comparing the 24-
iyear-old Cherry as an up-an-com-
ing lightweight prospect who is
i"fire-tested, having been seen on
television many times," to Alecia,
the 33-year-old who "is offense-

minded and knows only one gear,
coming forward." The announcer
favored Alecia's 14-year boxing
history against Cherry's five-year
professional with 30 amateur fights
in an eight-year span.
Cherry was coming off a victory
streak which included an llth
round TKO of formerly unbeaten
Monty Meza-Clay, who incidental-
ly was on Friday night's undercard,
taking an eight-round bout against
Dean White and winning on a 6th-
round stoppage due to a cut over
White's left eye.
Alecia had posted 3-2 in his last
five fights since moving up to the
S135-pound lightweight division. He
had fought a featherweight title
bout in 2002 at 126 pounds. TV
ring announcer Teddy Atlas said
Cherry was the bigger, stronger
fighter and "should stay outside
and look for the uppercut," while
Alecia should "use his speed and
look for the right hand over the
Cherry left hand."
With the fight set, Cherry came
out in his characteristic "Cherry
Bomb" red trunks, high red socks
and red shoes to counter Alecia,
backing him up with his jab and
combinations. In 'the feeling-out
process, Alecia landed a couple of
good shots, with Atlas giving the
round to Alecia 10-9.
Cherry took all the other rounds
on the Atlas scorecard. In the sec-
ond round, Cherry landed with his
left hook and two right hand shots
plus a series of punches which
nearly felled Alecia, who fell into
the ropes twice to avoid a knock-
down.
Realizing he had hurt his oppo-
nent, Cherry came out afire in the
third round using uppercuts, body
shots and combinations to attack
the body and slow his opponent.
In the fourth, he began to wear
Alecia down and caught him com-

ing in, but Alecia was able to fight
off the ropes. Round five was simi-
lar and sixth had the same sound.
Atlas commented on "Cherry's
maturity. He's learning to do things
to give himself the advantage and
not his opponent."
Between rounds Fernandez told
Cherry it was time. "Let's go
home." But Cherry appeared to
have hurt his right hand, with
Fernandez telling Atlas he believed
the right knuckle was broken.
Cherry literally stopped in his
tracks and shook the hand after a
particularly hard shot. "It was bone
on bone. It hurt a lot but I knew it
wasn't broken. He has a hard head.
I did the same with the left hand in
the ninth round. I had to ease off,
fight, ease off."
Fernandez reported to Atlas that
he had told Cherry, "We'll see
about the hand on Monday. Just
stay on the stick and go to 12.
'You've got a job to do."
And, stick Cherry did, using the
left jab, "sticking" it in front of his
opponent and dancing away, get-
ting body shots in with the injured
hand. "He got in a couple shots, but
I had to stand my ground."
And, so he did, drawing praise
from Atlas, who commented. "He's
not the first fighter to finish a bout
injured, be it a hand, shoulder, eye,
cut, or whatever. The difference
between a good fighter and a great
fighter is one who can fight on."
In the last three rounds, Alecia's
right eye began to swell and he was
markedly slower but still coming
forward. Cherry continued to move
in and out, hitting the right cross,
left to the body, while not allowing
Alecia to get "in the home of
Cherry."
In the 12-round, Cherry "contin-
ued to do a consistent steady job of
'strong left hooks, and at one time
had Alecia cornered for nearly 40
seconds. Finally, when he landed a
couple of big shots, the referee
stopped the fight at 1:50. Cherry
had landed 268 of 916 punches, 29
percent. Announcers said it was
right to stop the fight as Alecia,
could have been badly hurt if it
Scontinued,4 .. ..... -
"Daniel Alecia fought' d tough
fight. He put his belts on the line
and I did too. The referee stopped
the fight because he was getting
hurt. His eye was nearly swollen
shut. He was taking too many
shots," said Cherry.
"We watch film of fights and
look for better ways to handle
things. Then, we practice those sit-
uations. I knew I had to take him
off his game, move a lot. He can't
stand that, he wants to fight straight
up," said Cherry, who had sparred
50 rounds with Tampa pro Nate
Campbell in preparing for the bout.
It paid off for the new champion.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S.L. Frisbie, IV

The Peril Of Pointing A Gun


Dear Editor,
Hillsborough County jurors sent
a clear signal to criminals in Tampa
last week:
(1) If you point a gun at the head
of a law-abiding citizen, you do so
at your peril.
(2) That peril may not end when
you quit pointing the gun at your
victim's head.
A jury found Lawrence Storer,
owner of a Thai restaurant, inno-
cent of manslaughter for running
down and killing a man who had
just robbed him at gunpoint.
Admittedly, it was a close call
from a legal standpoint.
We have law enforcement agen-
cies and a couit system to discour-
age vigilante justice, among other
reasons. As frustrating as the crim-
inal justice :system may be some-
times, it is 'a fa better alternative
than stringing up a horse thief from
the nearest tree.
In the Taipa case, the facts were
not at issue:
*On Oct. 29, 2003 Shantavious
Wilson, *24, pointed a gun at
Storer's face as he sat in his truck
late at night in front of his restau-
rant, Sumos Thai Cafe, on East
Twiggs Street.
The weapon was a BB gun, but
clearly looked like a nickel-plated
.45 caliber automatic.
Storer managed to hide $2,000
in his truck before Wilson marched
him at gunpoint inside the restau-
rant, where Wilson took a bag of
change, then left.
Storer locked the door and
called 911,: then returned to his
truck and started pursuing Wilson
while remaining on a cordless
phone with the 911 operator until
his phone lost the signal.
Storer ran over Wilson, killing

him.
A good argument can be made
that Storer, having called the
police, should have sat back and let
them do the job, if they were able to
get to the scene in time to catch the
fleeing gunman. That would have
been the safer course of action, and
would have ended any accusation
of vigilante justice.
That is the decision that a calm,
cool and collected citizen would
have made.
Having just had what appeared to
be a deadly weapon shoved in his
face, Storer presumably was nei-
ther calm, cool nor collected. He
was, we may safely guess, both
outraged and scared out of his wits.
He took an action that was nei-
ther rational nor merciful.
Does that make him a felon
deserving of a 15-year prison sen-
tence? Not in my opinion, or the
jury's.
Let there be no mistake about it:
I don't countenance vigilante jus-
tice.
But when you decide to stick a
gun in a guy's face, you have decid-
ed to start it.
And you do so at the peril that
the other guy not you may
decide when and how to end it.

Hewetts Top Young Golfers


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Tyler and Kyle Hewett of
Wauchula are already leading local
golfers.
The brothers excelled in the sum-
mer Sertoma Junior Goc Tour cen-
tered in Highlands County, which
also plays at courses in Hardee and
DeSoto counties.
Tyler, only 10, took the boys 14-
and-under Player of the Year award
in end-of-the season ceremonies
Monday evening. On the 9-hole
course, he averaged 47. He won 13
of 15 of his events with a total of 85
points, easily outdistancing Silas
Berry who finished with 67.5
points. Wauchula's Jhett See fin-
ished third in the boys 9-10 age
group with 52 points.
Kyle, 8, playing in the boys 6-8
age group, also claimed the win-
ner's trophy, taking the top spot in
11 of 12 events. His age group
plays only six holes, at which he
averaged 37. In last weekend's'
finale, he hit 31 on Saturday and 29
on Sunday.
Several other Hardee golfers also
took honors at Monday evening's
awards banquet.
Trenton Moon won the boys ages
11-12 group with 85 points.
Lincoln Saunders took the boys
13-14 title with 70 points.
Little Lacey McClenithan placed
third in the girls 10-13 division, but
took home the girls Best Sports-
manship award.
Hardee junior Kaleb Saunders
won the boys 15-16 division with
76.5 points to beat Sebring's Aaron
Snyder, who finished with 74.5
points.
Wildcat senior Justin Painter
placed third in the boys 17-18
group with 56 points, just behind
Sebring's Roben Griffin at 56.

To Hardee County Voters,


My name is Don Herndon. I grew up in Hardee
County in the Lake Dale area. I attended school
and participated in numerous activities.
Because of good school leaders and teachers I

was encouraged to pursue my college education.


After a football career at the University of
Tampa and the New York Giants I began my
teaching and coaching career. I can recognize
success, and failure, both in the classroom and
on the field. I know what it takes to be a winner.
Honesty, integrity, dedication, perseverance,...


Please consider my life skills when selecting a
candidate for Hardee County School Board,
District 1.

Well, there are accolades and upcoming events aplenty to report on.
First is Edner Cherry and his 12th round TKO on Friday Night Fights
seen on ESPN II, which earned him three more belts, the vacant NABA
title, as well as two his 37-year-old seasoned opponent put up for the fight.
More importantly, Cherry upped his ranking significantly, now 10th in the
WBA, 13th in the WBO and 14th in the world. He hopes to fight WBA
champ Juan Diaz shortly.
Cherry fought nearly the last half of the fight wounded and still took
the fight to his weary opponent. The referee finally called the fight at the
1:50 mark of the 12th round.
Ringside commentators noted Cherry's gutsy performance and said it
was the difference between a good fighter and a great fighter, one who is
able to fight on despite an injury or setback.
We understand 16-year-old Dalton Davis and Hardee grad Stephen
Judah both broke records at a weightlifting meet in Orlando last weekend.

this weekend by the next issue.
The Hewett brothers both earned trophies at the Sertoma Junior Golf.
banquet on Monday evening. The season ended with a Saturday-Sunday
