Voters Return 3 School Board Members


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Three of four incumbents were
returned to the Hardee County
School Board as primary election
results came in late Tuesday night.
District 3's Gina Neuhofer gar-
nered 51.69 percent of the vote
over Teresa Crawford's 48.31 to
retain her seat. Wendell Cotton of
District 5 took 52.09 percent over
Brian Pohl's 47.91. And in a sur-
prising landslide for a three-way
race, Jan Platt of District 4 captured
55.57 percent of ballots cast, hand-
ily defeating the dual challenge of
Glenn Bergens at 15.69 percent and
Kim Barwick Hanshaw at 28.74
percent.
But the District 1 race ended
without a decision. Incumbent Joe
Jones will have to battle hopeful
Paul Samuels in a runoff during the
general election in November.
Jones kept the lead in Tuesday's


.primary balloting, with 40.28 per-
cent. Samuels stayed on his heels,
at 37.79 percent. A third candidate,
Don Herndon, took the remaining
21.93 percent of the votes.
"I'm pleased how things went
tonight," Jones said from his van-
tage point in the parking lot of the
Supervisor of Elections Office as
results were posted. "I want to
thank everybody for their votes. I
appreciate the support they have
shown me.
"I'm ready to go for it!" he said of
the challenge ahead. "I'll be in there
punching. It's on to November
now!"
Samuels on Wednesday morning
had similar sentiments. "I'm very
excited. I had a lot of supporters out
there, and I want to thank them. I
still have a long way to go and a lot
of hard work to do to be ready for
November."
Campaigning, he added, "has


been fun. It's been rewarding get-
ting out there meeting the people
and hearing their concerns and their
views."
In the only other local races on
the primary ballot, for two circuit
judgeships in the 10th Judicial.
Circuit of which Hardee is one of
three member counties, local voters
favored Nathaniel White by 1,333
votes to John Stargel's 924. Stargel,
however, carried the other two
counties in the circuit, Polk and
Highlands to win the Group 28 slot.
The second judgeship ended in a
runoff for Ernest Jones, who took
1,002 votes here, and David
Carmichael, with 832 Hardee
votes. A third candidate, Kevin
Abdoney, posted only a 317-vote
showing here.
Voters in the three counties will
now choose between Ernest Jones
and Carmichael in November for

. Murder

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
'f The Herald-Advocate
: A murder trial is set to begin on
Monday for a Zolfo Springs man
accused of killing a woman who
has been missing for four years.
Thomas Jessie Crews Jr., 41, is
charged with second-degree mur-
der in the Oct. 10, 2002, disappear-
ance. of 20-year-old Sondra Bar-
.iington. Barrington's car was aban-
doned on U.S. 17 in DeSoto
County on that date, and she has
not been seen nor heard from since.
Her body has never been found.
; Crews became a suspect early
on, Hardee County Sheriffs Office
S spokesman Maj. Claude Harris Jr.
said. And on July 21, 2004, a local
Grand Jury handed up an indict-
ment against him.
Crews was arrested that same
day as he drove home from his
work as a tree surgeon. He has
remained in custody without bond.
*iHis trial, however, will not be
held in Hardee Circuit Court.
Instead. Crews will be tried at the
Polk County Courthouse in Bartow.
Thd reason for that shift in venue
is that prosecutors could not pin-
ppint where the alleged murder
occurred. Barrington, they said,
could have been killed in DeSoto
County on her way home from
work; in Hardee County, where she
lived; or in Polk County, where her
remains could be.
,"Because of the uncertainty of
Where the alleged murder took

dant to choose from among the

bench in Hardee County on two

$12 M


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Whether the road is 2,006 feet
or 10 miles long, its residents still
want to know when something will
be done to make it better.
At a recent meeting of the
Hardee County Commission, a
group of residents of the .38-mile.
Circle Drive in southwest Wau-
chula made it plain to the commis-
sion that they feel ignored for
badly-needed repairs to their road.
That kind of dissatisfaction is not
new to commissioners who heard a
similar plaint from those on
Whippoorwill Drive in May and
from other neighborhoods over the
past year.
The commission discussed the
possibility of bonding against the
revenue anticipated from the five-
cent optional gas tax which went


ion In Road Bonds?


into effect in January. Amounts
from $20 million to $12 million
were discussed, realizing some of
the bonding dollars would go to
other capital projects such as an
addition or administrative building
at the county jail.
J.R. Prestridge, director of public
works, and Mark Frazier, road and
bridge projects coordinator, re-
viewed the updated five-year capi-
tal improvement plan with commis-
sioners. It lists over $8 million in
proposed projects, in addition to
four which are funded through state
SCRAP (Small County Road
Assistance Program) and SCOP
(Small County Outreach Program)
dollars.
In 2006-07 those programs will
help pay for nearly $4 million in
village, resurfacing and drainage
improvements for 10.5 miles of


Sweetwater Road, 4.3 miles of
Dansby Road, 5.3miles of Florida
Avenue and 5.1 miles of Goose
Pond Road.
As the cost of petroleum arid
construction increases, so does the
estimated costs for these and other
projects. For instance; the Florida
Avenue project will be shortened,
from SR 64 to Carlton Street or
even Stenstrom rather than all the
way to U.S. 17.
These four roads are only a bit of
the 240 paved roads and 250
unpaved roads which cover the 511
miles of roads throughout the coun-
ty. Circle Drive is one of many in
the category 5 or worst roads, but
some 4s and even 3s are in equally,
bad shape. Determining where a
road stands on a priority basis
,includes a variety of factors in the

Do you use Florida Hospital-
Wauchula? If not, why not?
In considering whether to build a
new facility off U.S. 17 North,
Florida Hospital officials wonder
if it will be fully used by area resi-
dents.
John Harding, president and
chief executive officer of Florida
Hospitals-Heartland and Linda
Adler, administer of the Wauchula-
.-based hospital, presented an update
to the Hardee County Commission


last week.
During the video presentation
and long discussion, Harding said a
demographic study was being done
to determine if it would be cost-
effective to build a new full-ser-
vices hospital on the corporation's
property on REA Road off U.S. 17
North. If so, it would need to be uti-
lized by more county residents.
That brought up the question of
why people do or do not use the
present hospital on Carlton Street.
It_ was acknowledged that some

But, with more companies and
individuals not having insurance
coverage, self-pay patients are
increasing. The hospital has been
successful in recovering only about
five cents on the dollar for this care
and last year wrote off over $5 mil-
lion in bad debt and charity.
In contrast, the hospital gets 24
cents per dollar from Medicare and
17 per dollar from .Medicaid. It
needs to be 30 cents on the dollar
for the facility to meet expenses.

pital, Harding said the difference
was in t.he Intensive Care Unit
(ICU),. surgical 'and post-surgical-
and a few other services it doesn't
have now. It will.probably always
have to transfer neuro-surgery, high
risk babies' and"' cardiac care
Patients to largerr hospitals, but with
a full-service hospital, it'could
attract physicians.
Harding pointed out that a hospi-
tal 'is usually the second-largest
employer of the 'community
(behind education. They are usual-
ly a source of high-tech jobs for
young people to remain in the com-
munity, offer job stability and sup-
port othei jobs in the community as
its employees pay for .groceries,
gas, utilities, clothing and similar
items.
It also adds to the economic sta-
bility and growth of a community
as incoming residents want to know
what health care is available. A hos-
pital provides health screening,
health education and outreach, con-
tributes to social programs and pro-
vides for patients with limited
financial means, Harding's presen-.
tation said.
"I don't believe we can be a
robust community hospital without
a better payor mix and without.
being a full-service hospital. Other
communities of 25,000 are doing it.
We are going to do a demographic
study, which we expect to have
ready in about 90 days. Then, we'll
know better whether we should
build a new hospital.
"The community has embraced
us fairly well, but if something goes
wrong it is told over and over. We
have and continue to save lives. We
are riot a band-aid station. We run a
good hospital. But, if someone per-
ceives or actually had a bad experi-
ence, they refuse to use the hospi-
tal. To make a hospital work, a
community has to use it," said
Harding. ,
"Every hospital has its horror
stories. As long as there are people,
there will be mistakes. People have
'to realize that," said Commissioner
'Minor Bryant.
Harding again welcomed input
from the commission and commu-
inity, both on its experiences and its
willingness to partner with the hos-
pital on future building plans.

89 school year. It has steadily
decreased from 1998-99's high of
9.630.
Although the millage rate. is
down, overall the ad valorem
(property) tax levy for the next fis-
cal year has increased because of a
12 percent increase in property val-
ues. Total property taxes levied by
the School Board will raise
$11,927,495, up from the
$11,000,115 of the current year.
The $72.8 million proposed bud-
get is down from the $81.5 million
of the current year, which included
state funding for the K-8 school
which opened last month.
The largest percentage of the
School Board budget is the portion
called Required Local Effort, the
portion the, state requires each dis-
trict to levy in order to be eligible
for a variety of state funding. For
the next year, Hardee will receive
about $18.945 million in state edu-
cation grants. The Required Local
Effort millage, nearly 60 percent of
the total budget, dropped this year
from 5.1 to 4.9 mills. The overall
School Board millage is 7.663.

health Care $$
The Hardee County Commission
unanimously agreed, as the grant
has no cash or in-kind match and
will be used to supplement the
Primary Care grant and Closing the
Gap diabetic intervention program
grants.
Gilliard said the combined grants
provide care for the medically
underserved population of the
county, enabling them to get basic
care at a minimal cost. For
instance, they pay $12 for medi-
cine or $10 for an office visit at
Central Florida Health Care,
Pioneer Medical Center or at the
Health Department, which is the


agency at which people apply and
are determined to be financially eli-
gible for the grant programs.
Gilliard said the programs also
help with pharmacy, outpatient lab
(provided at cost at Alorida
Hospital-Wauchula). The new grant
will help with podiatry (feet) and
ophthalmology (eye) care, espe-
cially for diabetics who may suffer
from lost of feeling in the feet and
retinal problems in the eyes. It may
also help purchase, insulin,
syringes and other diabetic sup-
plies.
In other action at last week's
meeting, the commission:
approved the low bid of
$1,992,702.50 of D.R. Swanson for
the Wauchula Hills water and sewer

Kelly's Column
By Jim


About 360 people attended funeral services Tuesday afternoon for
Buford E. Long at the First United Methodist Church of Wauchula.
At the conclusion of the service his widow Sammie Long and the rest
of the crowd joined in to sing "We A-e The Boys From Old Florida." The
words go, "We are the boys from o;- Florida. F-L-O-R-I-D-A. Where the
gils are the fairest, the boys are the squarest, of any old state down our way.
fey! We are all strong for old Florida;down where the old Gat6rs play. Go
Gators! In all kinds of weather, we'll all stick together, for F-L-O-R-I-D-
: Buford, 74, was the last three-sport letterman at UF (football, baseball
iand track) and played pro ball for the New York Giants.
STwo beautiful songs were played at the funeral: "Somewhere Over The
Rainbow" and "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head." There was also the
Classic Battle Hymn of the Republic, "Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory."
S Buford still shares a UF football season record 14 rushing touch-
downs in a single season. He is tied with all-time NFL leading rusher
Emmitt Smith.
: Several of Buford's old teammates came, including the quarterback
toug Dickey.
Buford's two roommates from 1951 and 1952 were there: Mikey
Kelley (Ocala) who played end and was called "Middle Buster" and Curtis
King (Fort Pierce) who played tackle and end and was called "Big Buster."
Buford, a halfback and defensive back, was called "Little Buster."
"There was not over 10 or 15 pounds difference in our weight," said
King : ,
Presiding over the service were Rev. John Roberts and Rev. William' E.
Knight."- )
The first speaker was Dewey Terrell, president of the First National
"Bank of Wauichula. He developed a strong friendship with Long over the
past 19 years. Long was chairman of the bank's board of directors.
Terrell said Long was loyal, optimistic, always on an even keel, a gift-
ed athlete and true gentleman. Long could see the sunshine behind the
clouds..
Teriell once asked Long how he could be so optimistic in times of trou-
ble. Long replied to the effect.~-:when you have been a Florida Gator for a
long time you deal with and overcome a lot of adversity.
LQng was a charter member of the Bull Gators booster organization

since its formation 25 years ago.
Terrell said Sammie Long is a Hall of Fame first ballot choice as a
caregiver. ,
Long's nephew Jason Turner was the second speaker, saying Buford
was his family's "rock and source of inspiration." Buford showed a lot of
love and hugged people, leaving them with the aroma of Royal Copenhagen
After Shave.d "The grief we feel is the price we pay for love," said Turner.
Episcopal Priest John Roberts said citrus groves go through seasons of
blossoms, fragrance attracting bees, blossoms falling off and leaving
behind young oranges and grapefruit. "Buford bloomed witi.vigor and'bore
much good fruit. He has a new life in eternity. He has completed his earth-
ly journey and has a new peace with the Lord.
"Buford was a man's man, a decent and gentle man. He has gained a
better life in God's kingdom," said Father Roberts.
Long, a native of Lake Wales, owned and operated Buford Long
Equipment Company in Wauchula until 1985 and sold'Massey Ferguson
tractors. He grew oranges and enjoyed playing golf.
A Buford Long Memorial Scholarship.Fund has been established at the
First National Bank of Wauchula.
The Hardee High Wildcats were impressive Friday night in a 31-10
win over powerful '-A Fort Meaei,:ranked No. 1. Hardee was ranked No.
11 in 3-A.and earned'its 44th consecutive regular season victory.
Hardee has a great defense and an improving offense. Special teams
are solid. Another great Hardee crowed went to Fort Meade to support the
Cats. Hardee %ill host Port Charlotte Friday at 7:30.
Two bf Hardee's most faithful fans are Dr. Jim and Debbie Pyle.


The current Industry Week magazine reports the U.S. Labor
Department says the nation created 5.3 million net new jobs between
August 2003 and May 2006. Overall U.S. unemployment remains a rela-
tively low 4.8 percent.
A more troubling truth is that U.S. manufacturing has lostabout 3 mil-
lion jobs since January 2001. ,
U.S. manufacturing-jobs-peaed -in 1998, at 18.7 million. Today it is
14.2 million, soiie 4.5 million less than 8 years ago.
The percentage of U.S. manufacturing workers belonging to unions has


declined to about 13 percent, compared with about 39 percent 25 to 30
years ago. The United Auto Workers union had seen its membership decline
from 1.5 million in 1979 to less than 600,000 in 2005.
There remain only two major' manufacturers for large commercial air-
craft -.Boeing Co. of the U.S. and Airbus SAS of France.
China and India have experienced great growth in industry in the last
five years.
The magazine article indicated the U.S. must stress education and
training reform along with other business concerns of trade, tax, energy and
regulatory reform.
American industry faces structural challenges requiring new and far-
sighted solutions, said Ron Gettelfinger, president of. the United
.... Automobile; Aerospace and Agricultural ImplementWorkers of America
(UAW). "-
Young Americans need to be attracted to industry to replace retiring
workers. Jobs need to be, clean, competitive-paying and highly skilled.
Too many American manufacturing jobs have gone overseas: We need
to increase our manufacturing base in the U.S.
I recently found out the frog legs sold at restaurants such as Pioneer in
Zolfo Springs'are a product of China.
Maybe we can start growing more frogs in Florida, if we can get more
rain and establish more wetlands aid- stop..using so much herbicides and
pesticides. Frogs.love to eat bugs. We need more bugs- to support more
frogs. .

ildcats Whip Miners 31-10; Host Pirates Friday


]By JOAN SEAMAN
pOf The Herald-Advocate
ti In a battle of miscues, the Hardee
[Wildcats scratched their way to a
31-10 victory last Friday night.
i The victory was Hardee's fifth
,consecutive and 37th win over the
IFort Meade Miners since their
rivalry began in 1949. (They were
rained out in 2002). Fort Meade
'has won 17 games and there was
:-one tie.


The Friday win ups Hardee's vic-
tory streak to 44 regular-season
games. The 'Cats hope to continue
that this week as they face the Port
Charlotte Pirates at home. They
popped the Pirates 34-14 in Port
Charlotte a year ago.
Friday's game of miscues began
early. Fort Meade had possession.
After getting a first down, senior
quarterback Danny Grant went to
the air. His pass was tipped and


caught by junior defender Jordan
Grimsley who raced 44 yards to
paydirt. Pablo Anselmo's PAT was
good. A little over two minutes into
the game, Hardee had a 7-0 advan-
tage.
On its next series, Fort Meade
was stifled and Freddie Cortez
punted the ball to 'Cat back Terry
Redden who got an eight-yard
return. The Wildcats engineered a
12-play drive which included a 27-


yard pass to Lisnell Youyoute.
Stalled at 5-yard line, Anselmo
booted a field goal to put the
Wildcats up 10-0.
Fort Meade started a drive on its
33 and was moving along as the
second quarter started. Forced to
punt, the Cortez attempt was
blocked by Will Krause and recov-
ered by Gerardo Villegas at the
Miner 1. Jayquan Gandy toted it
around right end for the touch-
down. Anselmo nailed the PAT.
One minute into the second quarter,
Hardee had widened its lead to 17-
0.
Fort Meade was not about to
quit. Junior speedster Onterrio
McCalebb returned the kickoff 37
yards to midfield. Then, he went
around right end untouched and
outraced everyone to the goal line.
The Cortez kick was good. It was
17-7.
The Miners shortly had another
chance, when a fumble gave them
the ball at the Hardee 47. Senior
defensive end Johnny Ray Harris
sacked the quarterback. A no-gain-
er, penalty and short gain forced the
Miners to punt.


Shortly, Hardee punted, the ball
back and Fort Meade started over.

Past and present co-workers of Wendell Cotton gathered at thqe
post office on Friday evening, July 28, for a retirement party it
his honor. Cotton's retirement comes after serving as a rural
mail carrier here for 29 years. On his final day of work, postal
employees decorated his truck with large banners which readA
"Happy Retirement!" "Enjoy Fishing, Golfing, Sleeping, Etc.o
Each of them also signed the banners, adding their own funny
memories and well wishes. The photo shows Wauchula
Postmaster Mike Boggs presenting a service award to Cotton on
behalf of the U.S. Postal Service. Cotton's actual retirement da;
was July 31. "I'll miss the many friends I came togkrow on all of
my mail routes," he said. "Twenty-nine years is a long time!"

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

WHAT ARE YOU SAVING YOURSELF FOR?
I went out for track in college. There was something about the mar-
velous exercise of running that thrilled me. And I enjoyed, too, the beauti-
ful expanse of autumn-blessed land through which we passed in our four-
mile cross country races.
But I never won a race because I was unwilling to.hurt myself. The first
mile was always the best. The second mile tired me. The third was pain and
discouragement. And the fourth spelled victory or defeat. Somehow I
always ran slower than I could have if I had pressed myself. As a result, X
shall always remember my coach's face, red with anger, as I finished strong-
ly and hardly out of breath.
"What are you saving yourself for? The race is over now!"
My grandfather was a "runner" of a different sort. He preached and.
taught and traveled and preached again in the tradition of John Wesley.
However, at 65, his health was completely broken. His eyesight was nearly
gone, his hearing lost, his comprehension dimmed. And I'd often heard peo:
pie shake their heads and say, "He should have spared himself a little!"
But what for? My grandfather's exhausted body and mind are an inspi-
ration to me today. Like a great athlete, he had spent himself. He had used
every talent he had for his Christ!
If I could have the assurance of one prayer answered for the rest of my,
life, I would pray that I might "run the good race" as my grandfather ran it;
For can you picture the disappointment on the face of the Master if I g6
home with my abilities unused, my talents unexploited and my energies
carefully preserved? How my hear will burn if my coach's words ar spoken
again there!
"What are you saving yourself for? The race is over now" .

PhosChem


Supply Co.


By BRETTJARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
Motorists on Maiin Street will
have surely noticed the attractive,
new cracker-style house located
next to the Mosaic office building.
Thtfi i's -thef'tardee- offitce"of the
PhosChem Supply Co., a company
founded in 1964 by Carl E. Mears,
Sr. and his father-in-law, Erwin M.
Haynsworth. Originally the compa-
ny was based in Polk County, but as
the phosphate industry has shifted
south, so has it.
"The company is a supplier of
products and services: to various
industries. It takes supplies to coal
fired power generation, plants,
lubrication systems to car dealer-
ships and aggregate rock which is
used to provide the limestone for
road beds," said Jama Abbott, com-
munity relations manager.
President Mark Mears and Vice
President Carl E. "Skip" Mears, Jr.
are currently relocating the busi-
ness to Hardee County.
"We have moved our administra-
tive offices here and will soon be
shifting our entire business to
Hardee County. In several years we
will also be moving our warehouse
facilities that are currently in
Mulberry here," said Mark Mears.
"We chose Hardep County be-
cause it is centrally located for all
of the industries we serve," Mears
added.
Currently the company employs
25 people who are traveling be-
tween each office. In the future
more employees from Hardee
County will be hired.
"We are certainly proud to be
here and we look forward to being
more involved within the commu-
nity," said Mears.
And withthe $24,000 donated to.
Hardee High School students in the
form of scholarships over the past
two years, the company is doing
just that. It is currently the largest
private contributor to scholarship
funds.
"Yesterday [Aug. 22] we met'
with all the principals from the
schools in the county, Dennis Jones
and local business employers to see
how we could help raise money for
the schools," Abbott said.

of-bounds and another broken up
by Krause. Cortez split the uprights
with a 38-yard field goal to cut the
Hardee lead to 17-10.
Hardee started in good position
after a out-of-bounds kickoff, but
the pass was intercepted. That was
nullified -y a Miner foul and
Hardee had the ball at midfield.
Three plays later, the Krause punt
went into the end zone for a touch-
back at the 20.
The rest of the third quarter was
an exchange of fumbles. After a
Ricky Wiggins sack, Fort Meade's
punt went awry. Two plays later,
Hardee returned it to Fort Meade
with an interception.
The fourth quarter started much
the same. Fort Meade was rolling
along on a nine-play drive when a
quarterback sack jarred the ball
loose and Hardee recovered it at the
Wildcat 26. After a short gain,
Palmer kept the ball, spun into the
clear and raced 73 yards to score.
Anselmo's kick was good, widen-
ing Hardee's lead to 24-10.
Fort Meade tried again, but suf-
fered an interception by Redden at
the Hardee 47. Passes, runs, a
reverse and some more runs by
reserve Herman Patterson moved
the Cats downfield rapidly. Patter-
son carried it for the final nine
yards to score. Anselmo made his
fifth good kick of the night, leaving
Hardee up 31-10.
In the final two minutes of the
game, Fort Meade tried to get
going, but the final sack of quarter-
back Grant pushed the Miners
backward as the game ended.
"I thought it would be much clos-
er. We caught some good breaks.
The final score is deceptive. We
capitalized on a few mistakes and
had a tremendous defensive effort,"
said Hardee head coach Derren
Bryan.
All the coaches agree that it was
one of the longest, hottest games
they had been in, with kids going
down frequently with cramps. Cool
towels on the neck relieved the
players some. "When they got
within seven points and had the.
momentum on.their side in the third
quarter, our defense hung in there
and didn't quit, giving the offense a
chance to get going again," com-
mented Bryan.
"With teams like Fort Meade
with speed, you knew they would
break out and we were glad it was
only once. Overall, our defense
played well and the blitz kept the
ball away from that speed. It was
Good to see (Weston) Palmer also
break loose for a touchdown rtin,"
concluded Bryan. He named
Palmer as offensive player of the
game for his 73-yard run and con-
sistent play in handoffs and passes.
Defensively, Harris and Wiggins
were named co-players of the
game. Harris had nine tackles, a
pair of sacks and caused a fumble.
Wiggins had 12.5 tackles, one for a
loss, and a sack. Andrew Cisneros
also recorded a sack. Krause had
eight tackles, a pass breakup and
blocked punt. Joe Barton added a
fumble recovery and three tackles,
Patterson had four tackles and
Grimsley three tackles and inter-
ception for a TD.
Others, in on the defensive effort
were Logan Thomas (six tackles),
Redden (six tackles, an interception
and two pass .breakups), and
Villegas with a fumble recovery
and three tackles.
Redden got the nod as Special
Teams player of the week for his
two kickoff and three punt return
runs.
Named to the scout player of the
week were running back Kierre
Cook anid linebacker Trey Small,
who simulated the Miner offense
and defense and helped Hardee pre-
pare for the game.

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


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

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


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


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

DISCLAIMER
As of Monday, September 4, the fugitives featured
in this section were assumed uncaptured as verified
by various law enforcement databases. Crime
Stoppers and The Herald-Advocate assumes no
responsibility for those featured who were not want-
ed by law enforcement at the time of publication.

A Daily Thought

THURSDAY
I'm sure now that I'll see God's
goodness in the exuberant
earth. Stay with God! Take heart.
Don't quit. I'll say it again: Stay
with God.
Psalm 27:13-14 (ME)

FRIDAY
No, in all these things, we win
an overwhelming victory
through Him who has proved
His love for us. I have become
absolutely convinced that nei-
ther death nor life, neither mes-
senger of heaven or monarch of
earth, neither what happens
today nor what may happen
tomorrow, neither a power from
on high nor a power from below,
nor anything else in God's
whole world has any power to
separate us from the love of
God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:37-39 (PME)

SATURDAY
(Moses said), "I will proclaim
the name of the Lord. Oh, praise
the greatness of our God! He is
the Rock, His works are perfect,
and all His ways are just; a faith-
ful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is He.
Deuteronomy 32:3-4 (NIV)

SUNDAY
For it is by His (God's) grace
you are saved, through trusting
Him; it is not your own doing. It
is God's gift, not a reward for
work done. There is nothing for
anyone to boast of.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NEB)
MONDAY
Be glad you are His (God's); let
those who seek the Lord be
happy. Depend on the Lord and
His strength; always go to Him
for help. Remember the mira-
cles He has done, His wonders
and decisions.
I Chronicles 16:10-12 (NCV)

TUESDAY
SAnd I heard every creature in
heaven and on earth and under
the earth and in the sea, saying
"To Him (Jesus) who sits upon
the throne and to the Lamb be
blessing and honor and glory
and might for ever and ever."
Revelation 5:13 (RSV)

WEDNESDAY
Set yourselves apart for a holy
life. Live a holy life, because I
am God, your God. Do what I tell
you; live the way I tell you. I am
the God who makes you holy.
Leviticus 20:7-8 (ME)

Wildcat Golf Hits New Low


Lock in a great rate.


By JOAN SEAMAN
-Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee boys golf scored.its low-
'est team score in at least six years.
SSophomore Brek McClenithan
'led the way with his all-time low
scoree of 33 on the home Torrey
,Oaks course last Thursday when
the Avon Park Red Devils came to
Visit. McClenithan sank three
'"birdies en route to his best-ever
-score. .
' Earlier in the week, Hardee


played Ridge Community High at
Southern Dunes and won by 35
strokes, reported boys coach
George Heine. Junior Kaleb
Saunders and senior Justin Painter
led the way with a 38 and 40
respectively. Soph Ben Krause
"shot his low round of the year with
a smooth 39." All three shot a
birdie. McClenithan had a 42 and
classmate Jake Crews a 44. Junior
Kyle Cobb finished the scoring
with 53.


In the Avon Park match, the Red
Devils "are a much better team than
they showed," said Heine, whose
team won 145 to 185. "They all
had a bad day," commented Heine,
who was elated at the McClenithan
break-out score. "Justin had a solid
36 with one birdie and Kaleb came
in with a 37 with two birdies."
Cobb finished in 39, his low round
of the year, and Krause ended with
a 43, "not his usual round."
Heine was pleased with the
team's effort. "This was our lowest
team score in the six years I have
been coaching. Hopefully, it will
carry over throughout the remain-
der of the season and into districts."
Hardee is in the 11-school Class
IA, Region 6, District 16, which
includes several west-coast private
schools, always a challenge for the
Wildcats.
Meanwhile, Hardee girls contin-
ued to be slowed by the weather. At
Tuesday at Southern Dunes, the
girls finished so late they quit, still
getting home at 10 p.m. "We were
down 208-218 with two girls not
able to finish on the hard, slow
course," said coach Byron'
Jarnagin.
Thursday, at Cypress Wood
against Lake Region, the rains
came just as the match was starting.
This week the Hardee boys were
at Lake Wales Country Club ,on
Tuesday, battling both Frostproof
and Fort Meade. Today (Thurs-
day), the 'Cats host Lakeland. Next
Tuesday, the Wildcats greet Frost-
proof and Fort Meade in a return
match at Torrey Oaks. Next
Thursday, Hardee travels to Placid
Lakes to take on the Green Dragons
on their course.
For the Lady Wildcats, Tuesday's
match was at home against Lake
Region. Today, they travel to
Imperial Lakes to play Mulberry
and Frostproof. Next Tuesday, they
go to The Bluffs to play DeSoto
and on Thursday host Lake Wales.
Both teams will go to Sebring on
Sept. 18 to play in the annual
Hawkins Tournament.

after the age of 50 for all walks of life. It began as a result of a few women
deciding to greet middle age with verve and humor.
: The founder's name is Sue Ellen Cooper: While visiting a friend in
Tucson, she impulsively bought a bright red hat at a thrift shop, for no other
reason than it was cheap and quite dashing. A year later she read the poem
"Warning" by Jenny Joseph which depicted an older woman in purple
clothing with a red hat. It was then that she decided to buy a red hat for the
friend she was visiting and a copy of the poem. Her friend got so much
enjoyment from the red hat that Sue Ellen gave the same gift to another
friend, then another, then another.
One day the friends noticed they had become a sort of Red Hat Society
and should go out to tea. They decided they would find purple dresses
which didn't go with their red hats but would complete the poem's image.
Soon, each of them thought of another woman or two that she wanted
f n idicdide,-and they bought more red hats. The group grew to 18 ladies and
they started encouraging other interested ladies to start their own chapters
(as 18 women didn't fit well around a tea table). Each chapter could hold
events and whatever activities they wished.
Now, this club holds conventions where entire hotels are filled with
women wearing red hats and purple outfits.
Red Hats At Hardee Manor
At Hardee Manor we have a group of red hat ladies who meet once a
rionth. They are our residents dressed in their red hats and purple outfits,
and are led by Activities Director Bernice Murphy. They hold meetings and
have different activities such as crafts, writing poems, making quilts, girl
jalk, tea time and much more.
.; Family members buy them earrings, purses, and any other item that
goes with their colors of red and purple. These ladies have even given them-
selves an official name. They are known as "The Glamour Girls," and
glamorous they are indeed. Each of them has her own red hat hanging on
i e wall of her room.
SAfter I learned the true story of the red hat ladies society I wished they
ad something for my age (for those in their 40s) Guess what? They do.
Women ages 50 and under can also be apart of the red hat ladies society.
tey, however, have to wear a pink hat and lavender outfits.
SIf there is anyone out there interested in being a part of this 50-and-
S der age group, call me, ma\ be we can start one in Hardee County and be
S glmorous too. I'm a phone call al\a.. Work 773-3231. cell 445-0097.

In the junglesof South America
we came onto two missionaries
who bathed daily, dressed for
dinner and kept their bodies afid
souls in good shape.
"Why?" asked our friend.
"We have a fear of going'
native," they replied.: '
We met other Americans in the
jungles. Their moral standards
fell apart. Their bodies and souls
became dirty.,
Something like this happensito
some Christians who, living with
non-Christians, fail to maintain a
godly testimony:. They g6 native'
by imitating the life aout them.
Don't copy the behavior of the
world. Be a new and different
person. Copy Christ!l

GAME OF THE WEEK
Georgia at South Carolina


The heat is
after one of his most satisfying weeks as-head coach, Steve
Spurrier will feel even better if his Gamecocks beat visiting
Georgia on Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium and
take the inside track to the SEC East championship.
Spurrier was pleasantly surprised by the performance of his
defense, which lost 10 starters from a year ago, as the Gamecocks
opened conference play with a 15-0 victory at Mississippi State.
Less than 48 hours later, Spurrier was given a standing ovation by
90,000-plus fans at Florida Field as the Gators celebrated the 10th
anniversary of their national championship season.
Georgia didn't re-emerge as an SEC contender until Spurrier
left Florida for the NFL's Washington Redskins following the
2001 season. Including last year's two-point victory over the
Gamecocks, the Bulldogs arejust 2-11 against Spurrier-coached
teams.

After winning well on Monday,
the Hardee volleyball girls lost to
two district opponents last week. '
SThe girls won, at Lake Region on.
:Monday, but went to Sebring
Tuesday only to lose in three sets.
On Thursday, they hosted the Avon,
Park Red Devils who had not won
a match and lost to them.
The pair of losses drops Hardee.
to 1-3 in Class 4A-District 10 play.
SOverall, the Lady 'Cats are 3-3,
winning the season opener at
Bartow, beating district rival
Sarasota Booker and the victory
.over Lake Region last Monday.
Fortunately, there was only one
game this week, a visit from anoth-

,er district opponent Braden River
on Tuesday. Next week's game are
visits from district foes Palmetto on
Tuesday and DeSoto on Thursday.
Last week began with a strong
game against the Thunder at Eagle
Lake. Hardee downed Lake
Region 25-20 in the first game and
lost the second 25-10. Momentum
stayed with the Thunder early in the
third game, but swung back to
Hardee late. Down 20-12, the Lady
'Cats came back to win 25-23.
They went on to win game four 25-
12 behind the serving of senior
Bethany Lang and junior Megan
White. Helping win the match
were senior hitter Megan with nine
kills and six blocks and classmate
D.K. Davis who led the team in


passing and return of service.
At Sebring on Tuesday it was a
different story as no one really
stood out for Hardee in its three-set
loss. The local team had difficulty
returning the serves of Rachel
Ashley and the blocks and spikes of
Brittany Bullock. Hardee had
spurts of kills and dinks, especially
in the third game, when it was tied
at 18-all before the Lady Streaks
put the game and match away.
Hardee had perhaps hoped for a
better outcome on Thursday at
home against winless Avon Park,
but the team of five seniors and
three juniors was pumped up and
ready. In game one, there were six
ties, the last at 15-15 before Tiffany
Gregor put four :service points in
the book and Danielle West added
three more. Kysi Wooden got the
last two points with a wicked


served which skimmed the net and
was nearly impossible to return.
Avon Park won 25-18.
The Lady Devils were enthused
as they started game two with a half
dozen points by Nataly Barrios
before Hardee got started. Hardee
got one point and Avon Park added
two more, as the Lady Cats seemed
out of sync. For every point Hardee
got, Avon Park doubled or tripled
it, jumping out to a 12-4 lead.
Sarah Mahoney got an ace and
three other services to cut the lead
to 12-8, but Gregor went on a string
of eight good serves before one
went a bit long. Avon Park led 21-
8. Kember Townserd tried to rally
Hardee with a couple of good
serves, but the Lady 'Cats were
only able to narrow the gap to 22-
14. West served it out for Avon
Park's 25-14 win.
Hardee came out more alive in
Game 3. Behind the serving of
Lang, Hardee took a 4-1 lead and
widened it to 5-2 and 6-3 before


Wooden led Hardee to a 7-5 deficit.
When Missy Lander began serving
for theDevils, Hardee appeared to
have no answers as she reeled off
seven straight points to put her
team up 12-9.
Hardee would not go down easi-
ly, but Avon Park clearly was more
coordinated and determined as it
went on to win the final game 25-
19.
"We had no focus tonight, we
were not in sync. At times we ran
into each other," said coach Ken
Leupld. "I was pleased with their
hustle. We had no practice with
games- Monday and Tuesday and
Wednesday off for the storm and it
showed. We just were not playing


together," he added.
The Hardee JV, which has seven
freshmen on its 10-girl roster,
showed its inexperience in all three
matches last week. They lost in
straight sets at Lake Region and
also at Sebring, losing 25-14 and
25-20. "We were in there but miss-
ing eight serves didn't help," said
JV coach Meredith Durastanti. *
In game one against Avon Park,
Hardee tied the game 2-2, before
slipping behind 6-2 and eventually
losing 25-13. Game two was tied at
5-5 and 7-7 as the JV Lady 'Cats
fought for points. Again, inaccurate
serves and difficulty digging out
strong serves of the opponent cost
Hardee the game 25-10.
