RAIN-DRIVEN ROADWORK


Rally Saturday For



Imprisoned Trucker


PHO TO BY RALPH HARRISON
Recent heavy rains made water pour over the curbs and into downtown businesses, causing many to use sandbags to prevent
damage to their buildings. Contract crews lowered Main Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues in Wauchula by four inches
on Monday and replaced them Tuesday with a one-inch layer of asphalt, hopefully allowing water to run to intersection drainpipes
and not over thtecurbs. The work was to be completed late Tuesday._ -



Library To Close During Renovation


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
Do you have any reading at home
to catch up on?
The Hardee County Public
Library will be closing its doors for
at least two months starting on
Monday.
SPeople will have to stay out of it
because of the remodeling work
"that is being done. The air condi-
tioning system, carpet and ceiling
'will be replaced during the two
pionths, giving the library a newer,
And more comfortable, look.
The book collections will also be
moved around for more convenient
.access.
"Since Hurricane Charley in


2004, we have been in need of ren-
ovations and now, not only are we
getting those needed repairs, we are
also expanding," said librarian
Diane Hunt.
The entire project will give the
library an additional 3,000 square
feet.
A new youth services wing is
being added, giving children and
young adults a new section of
books on their reading levels. There
will be books for children any-
where from pre-kindetgarten to
pre-teenagers.
Having a new wing gives the
possibility for new programs
geared at child education.
"With the success of the Prime


Time reading program last year, we
will definitely be getting in touch
with the Hardee High School. Key
Club to volunteer time with new
programs for kids," said Dee
Shackelford, youth program coor-
dinator.
Additions will also bring more
space to regular library goers.
When it reopens around December,
there will be more room for people
to comfortably read and use their
laptops.


COMMEMORATION


Not only will the library be
expanding, but the hours will as
well. Though they have not yet
been set, they will encompass
evenings and Saturdays.
While the library is closed,
patrons will still have several ser-
vices available to them. Books can
still be picked up after being
requested by phone or ordered
online, and the drop off box for
books will still be available.

There will be a rally in front of
the Hardee County Courthouse on
Saturday in a public showing of
support for a truck driver sentenced
to 15 years in prison after a 2001
crash which killed two people.
Operation Free Jean-Claude
Meus was organized on Aug. 28 in
Avon Park following the Aug. 7
ruling of Circuit Judge Robert L.
Doyel denying the latest bid by a
Meus lawyer to win a new trial for
the imprisoned trucker.
Doyel, presiding in Hardee
Circuit Court, denied all four
claims asserted by Largo defense
attorney John H. Trevena. Trevena
had alleged juror misconduct, inef-
fective assistance of counsel, pros-
ecutorial misconduct and withheld
evidence in Meus' 2003 trial here.
Meus, 42, of Sebring, was found
guilty of two counts of vehicular
homicide by a Hardee County jury
in that August 2003 trial. The trial
centered on the May 2001 deaths of


Wauchula mother Nona Moore, 40,'
and her daughter, Lindsey, 8.
Prosecutors said Meus, moving a
load of tomatoes, fell asleep at the
wheel after making out on his
allowable driving hours and missed
the tirn on State Road 64 at Seven-
Mile Point, losing control of his
truck and overturning onto Moore's
minivan.

Crews Trial Delayed


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Once again there has been a
delay in the murder trial of a Zolfo
Springs man accused of killing a
woman who has been missing since
the fall of 2002.
This time, however, it will only
amount to seven days.
As Polk County residents sum-
moned for jury duty reported to the
Bartow courtroom of Circuit Judge
J. Dale Durrance on Monday morn-
ing, lawyers in the case argued over
the admissibility of some evidence
at trial.
Durrance will hear from both the
prosecution and the defense and
will resolve the question in an evi-
dentiary hearing set for this Friday


at 1:30 p.m. It is expected to last
from two to three hours.
The judge has allowed a one-
week postponement to the trial of
Thomas Jessie Crews Jr. Jury selec-
tion will begin anew this coming
Monday.
Crews, 41, is charged with sec-
ond-degree murder in the 2002 dis-
appearance of Sondra Barrington.
Barrington, 20, was on her way
home from work at DeSoto
Memorial Hospital in Arcadia
when her car was abandoned on
U.S. 17 about two miles south of
the Hardee County line.
She had been due to testify
against Crews in court the next day
in a domestic violence complaint.

"Monday was a day to remember for all Americans. Yet for this country's fire departments, it marked the fifth anniversary of courage.
Hardee County Fire-Rescue commemorated the anniversary of Sept. 11 with a national online presentation and an encouraging
speech by Fire Chief Michael Choate. All three fire stations met at the Wauchula headquarters to pay respect to the fallen rescuers
of Sept. 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center in New York. Choate also read a letter from a soldier overseas, and inspired his team
to remain passionate and faithful to their calling. The afternoon ended In an moment of silence in reverence of the fateful anniver-

Letter To The Editor

County Commission Should Not

Cut Funding To Resthaven :


Dear Editor:
I am outraged that the Hardee
County Commissioneis would even
consider cutting the allocated funds
for Resthaven in the 2006/07 bud:
get. For almost 60 years, Resthayen
has been one of Hardee County's
crown jewels, an institution' to
which we can point with pride..
Historically, 'the people of our
county have been generous and
altruistic, always willing to give the
extra dollar or walk the extra mile
to help our neighbors and friends.,
Resthaven is the. embodiment of
.that attitude.
S:In the early fifties, my mother
was a Girls' Auxiliary leader at the
,First Baptist Church of Wauchula.
At that time, she and a number, of
"her" girls went to Resthaven
armed with Windex and elbow
grease, and they cleaned windows
and worked hard to prepare' the
opening of the most' venerable
institution in Hardee County. Along
with'Thfem, another community
members invested their money,
time, and toil to ensure that the
elderly people of Hardee, County
would have a low-cost home and
excellent care when they needed it.
At Resthaven's opening celebra-
tion, I was a little girl, but I remem-
ber the pride our community felt in
having worked to establish a place
for our citizens to live when they
could no longer care for themselves
independently.
Since that opening, Resthaven
has served many elderly and laiidi-
capped people, treating them with'
the dignity and special care that
they deserve. There is scarcely a
:family in our area who has not ben-
efited from Resthaven's services at
one time or another.
S' Over the years, the people of our
community and in surrounding
counties :.have looked at Resthiven
as a place not only to be served, but
as a place to serve as well.
Members of Resthaven's Board of
Trustees, who volunteer their time,
have always worked hard to see
that our elderly citizens receive the
best care available anywhere. The
staff, too, is a group of dedicated,
caring people who look beyond

sundown and payday when they do
their job.
:Many families, who could have
chosen to send 'their loved ones
elsewhere have chosen Resthaven
for their parents or other relatives


became of the level of care they
- receive. '.
I think of the nuinbers"of folks
who have given their time, talents,
and resources to Resthaiven over
the years: farmers ho' have
brought loads of fresh vegetables,
organizations such as' the Cow
B'elles who selflessly gave presents
and parties to Resthaven's guests
each year, Sunday school children
who visited, and church groups
vwho came to distribute lap robes
and other comforts to Resthaven's
. clients. Schools, too, have given
their part. Groups such as'Lionettes
a-rid' tlh Niiiorial' inorf Society
have come and entertained the resi-
dents at Resthaven.
There have been Sunday Schdol
teachers who faithfully came each
Sunday. volunteers who were will-
ing to play bingo, singing groups
who entertained, and individuals
who donated money, meat, or what-
ever was needed when Resthaven
needed if. -- "
It is inconceivable to me that
SHardee County's Commissioners
would now ensure Resthaven's
death sentence by cutting its fund-
ing. For years; the trustees and
employees of Resthaven have been
good stewards of the fun~s eitrust-
ed to them.
Resthaven has always been able
to offer excellent care and assis-
tance to our citizens at a low cost,
because the people who oversee the
day-to-day running of,~Resthaven
have been, excellent managers.
No one could say that Rest-
haven's budget has been large, or
even adequate for such. ari institu-
tion. Yet through wise management
and, good stewardship, its,door have
Remained open.
SNoow, however, .the Bord' of
Commissioners proposes a cut;that
is, unconscionable. They are not so
naive as to believe that Resthaven,
which is already struggling.to sur-
vive financially, will beiable. to sur-
vive such a blow.
I. ask them to, .consider' their
motives in making, such,a cuts and

N'
o' Historical Happenings
a. By Tammy Opalek
Tn: Paynes Creek Historic State Park Volunteer


nl

is FORT CHOKONIKLA ARTIFACTS NOW ON DISPLAY
in As a volunteer at Paynes Creek Historic State Park, I am glad to report
that a new exhibit has been installed in the museum at the park.
ql There was talk last summer among the volunteers and State Park
Ranger Neil Gilmore during an annual meeting about artifacts from
Tallahassee which were in the process of being acquired to display, by per-
Mlanent loan from the Bureau of Archaeological Research, at Paynes Creek.
volunteerss have come and gone. I seem to have stuck around, and have
offered to put my writing talents to work for the park to report interesting or
unusual stories on local natural and cultural history.
it I recently received word from Park Manager Jackson Mosley that the
long-awaited artifacts have indeed come to Paynes Creek. They are on dis-
play at the Visitor's Center in a glass case complete with identification tags.
I asked for an interview with Jackson, and brought my digital camera to
"photograph some of the artifacts.
or Jackson told me during the interview that he had requested the artifacts
from the Bureau of Archaeological Research in Tallahassee last year from
investigations which had been done locally in the early 1980s. In fact, he
requested the artifacts from these investigations 14 months ago. It has been
along wait!
) "I thought about having an exhibit like this since I was working here as
a state park ranger in '97, but now that I was promoted to park manager I
-have the authority to acquire dispositions for the park and make decisions
such as this to improve the local history of our community," he noted.
;1 "I want people to come in and take a look at this new exhibit. The plan
is to keep this exhibit of local history growing, in order for people to come
and appreciate and be part of history which stems from the early days of
Hardee County," he added.
The Visitor's Center inside the park has a small but very thorough per-
manent local history museum with many replica historical artifacts on dis-
play. The glass case located in front of the desk immediately across from the
entrancee holds the new display of authentic artifacts Jackson has acquired
from Tallahassee.
Besides the Visitor's Center, there are wood-planked nature trails
around the park which lead to historical sites such as the original location of
Fort Chokofiikla; the site of the Kennedy-Darling Trading Post during the
Seminole Wars of the 1840s; and a monument dedicated to Capt. George S.
Payne and Dempsey Whiddon, who were killed by a band of renegade
feminoles at the trading post.
There also are numerous birding and hiking trailsamong the many
acres of this historic park east of Bowling Green.
bl Jackson knows there are citizens living in Bowling Green or Wauchula
Wiho are directly related to those remembered at Paynes Creek. "Our goal is
4b eventually encourage Hardee Senior High's Florida history classes to
become involved with the history which took place here. We want to learn
Wore from local people who had relatives that were part of this historical
period, to share their stories or information. We could archive here at Paynes
iGreek any additional information. We have already started, but there is a lot
-f information (still) out there," he said.
"n We are continuing to maintain the natural ecosystems around Paynes
Creek, but we also would like to grow (as an organization) because we have
the cultural and natural resources that can benefit the citizens of Hardee
County educationally (as well)," he added.
State park hours are 8 a.m. to sunset. Annual park passes are available.
-General daily admission to the park is $2 per carload.
r Visitors are encouraged to take only pictures and leave nothing but
footprints. Pavilions are available for picnicking; fishing can be done in the
,Peace River and Paynes Creek, and there is a playground complete with a
.Volleyball net for the entire family to be active at the park. Alcohol is pro-
hibited.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Several members of the
Wauchula City Commission were
critical of their new city manager.
At Monday evening's meeting,
the new city head, Rick Giroux,
came in for a share of censure from
the commission for authorizing
costly repairs to West Main Street
without the commission's approval.
Giroux told commissioners the
construction work between Seventh
and Eighth avenues was "to knock
off four inches and repave it with
one-inch of asphalt. Intervention
was needed because heavy rains
were causing water to pour into
businesses along that section of
street where the road is almost as
high as the curb and several inches
higher than the floors in the build-
ings."
Giroux said he had approved the
use of $32,500 from Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
funds for the work. He said he
would bring a resolution approving
the expenditure to the commission
at the Tuesday evening first public
budget hearing.
Commissioners were quick to
comment. "Are we setting a prece-
dent?" asked Commissioner Ken
Lambert. Giroux said he "didn't
think so.but it was done to mititgate
damages for our merchants. It was
a judgment call, why?"
Commissioner Jerry Conerly
said he agreed with Lambert. "Did


the work need to be done so quick-
ly it couldn't come before the com-
mission to approve it?"
Responded Giroux, "With the
heavy rains the last couple of
weeks, there has been $3,000 to
$6,000 damage on some floors."
Finance Director James Brad-
dock noted it was cost-saving to
use a road construction crew from
A-PAC Inc. while they were in the
area and not have the mobilization
costs for them to return and set up
again.
Lambert said, "That doesn't
remove the need to avoid the usual
process of consulting the commis-
sion, despite the merit of the pro-
gram. In fact, though, it's a very old
problem, not an emergency."
Commissioner Mavis Best, a for-
mer longtime employee of the city,
"Even if it was an 'emergency,' I
strongly oppose it. It is a county-
maintained road and the bills
should properly go to the county
(for business damages). I'm con-
cerned because it's not city busi-
ness only, we should have worked
with the county on this."
Both Lambert and Best told
Giroux that they did not expect this
type of decision to happen again.
Mayor David Royal said eight
businesses were affected on that
block when Main Street flooded.
"We discussed it at the time the
road was made too high for the
curb. Like Ken and Mavis, I don't'
think you should take it on yourself


Kelly's Column

Bobby Brown of Wauchula and his daughter Shamika Brown recently
saw Barry Bonds hit two homeruns against the host Atlanta Braves. He then
saw Notre Dame defeat host Georgia Tech 14-10 in football.
He reported gasoline prices are cheaper in Georgia than in Florida.

It has been encouraging lately to see gasoline prices locally fall from
about $3 a gallon to about $2.59 a gallon.
The summer driving season is over and no major hurricanes have
helped cause gas prices to fall. Some experts feel gas prices will come
down more in the near future, as OPEC is continuing their oil production
and the price per barrel of oil is falling.
Many Americans are driving less or cutting corners in other areas of
their spending. Some are buying more fuel efficient vehicles.

My son Jpnhatha, and, I recently saw,.Wanda Gunn and her husband
Jimmy at a local grocery store. Wanda, recovering froin a serious motorcy-
cle accident about two years ago, then wrote this note:
"So good seeing you two. I am really doing good. Today we went to
Sebring and came home and cooked supper pork chops, made:tomato
gravy, could not find the rice but later found it, and green beans and tea.
"I walk a half mile one or two times a day. If you want to put some-
thing in the paper that you saw me and how I am doing, you can!"
Wanda, who used to own a hair salon in Wauchula and was chef for the
Kiwanis, Rotary and Lions clubs, said they will be moving Sept. 19 back to
their home at 1031 Morgan Grice Rd. in Wauchula.
Since being released from rehab Wanda and her husband have been liv-
ing at the home of Pat Jones, her former sister-in-law, in Fort Meade.
Wanda hopes soon to get her hair styling license and her driver's
license. She told us, "I'm a tough old bird."

The current issue of Citrus Magazine reports local growers can again
hear the official USDA citrus crop estimate Oct. 12 at 8:30 a.m. at the Joe
L. Davis Barn east of Wauchula. Breakfast will be served. This is sponsored
for the 10th year by the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association.
Radio Stations WZZS will broadcast the estimate. The station is also
broadcasting all Hardee High Wildcat football games this season.
Pickers' rates last year went from 80 cents to a dollar a box early in the
season to about $2 a box by July, reported Mike Carlton, director' of pro-
duction and labor affairs at Florida Citrus Mutual. This was because many
Hispanic laborers had left and gone back to Mexico.
They were concerned they could not get a guest worker permit if
already in the U.S. illegally. Carlton indicated over half of the laborers were
in the state illegally, based on not being able to link names with U.S. Social
Security numbers.
Harold Browning of UF-IFAS indicated Florida citrus growers are
going to have to be spending more money spraying for psyllids to curtail
citrus greening, also more for copper sprays to help control canker.
Tom Spreen of UF-IFAS indicated last year's orange prices for
Hamilins and Valencias combined was about $1.33 a pound solids delivered
*in.
Orlando consultant Elizabeth Steger has forecast 123 million boxes of
oranges in Florida for the 2006-07 year. Some experts feel that estimate is
too low. The Oct. 12 USDA forecast will give us a much better idea. The
smaller the crop, the higher the prices to the growers.

The Hardee High Wildcats were very impressive Friday night in a 44-
0 win over Port Charlotte, for Hardee's 45th straight regular season win.
The No. 11-ranked 3-A Cats will host St. Pete Catholic this Friday at 7:30
p.m. The Cats show signs of being a "Special Team."

Jessie Chestnut, 70, of River Chase Apartments in Wauchula, called
last week to report a good deed. She and her mother Lela Ballard, 92, had
brought groceries in Wauchula and when she got home her wallet was gone.
About 7:30 that night a large man knocked at the front door and
returned her wallet, which had about $150 cash which included the rent
money.
She had shopped at Eddie's Discount Groceries at 1040 S. Hwy. 17 at
the old Wauchula Plaza,
Eddie and his wife Maria own the store. They are from Costa Rica and
had owned and operated a discount grocery store in Bradenton before relo-
cating here about a year ago. The store is open 9 to 7 seven days a week.
Maria had helped load the groceries into Jessie's car. She drove off,
and the wallet fell from the car. Maria looked for a phone number or an
address and found the driver's license.
Jessie and her mother have lived together since 1967 when her father
Tom Ballard died. Jessie did not know who returned her wallet but'
described him as a "huge man" and said, "I still have faith in the human
race."
Jessie said three years ago his niece lost a purse containing $1,000 cash
at the Bradenton Mall. It was her vacation money. His niece began to cry,
but Jessie checked at the Lost & Found department. Asked to describe the
purse, Jessie said it had $1,000 in it. The purse had been turned in with the
money intact. "That taught us a lesson," said Jessie.
Jessie said he and his wife moved here to open their business in order
to help people on a tight budget. The store sells name brand groceries,
including fresh milk and eggs. Many of the grocery items had been pur-
chased as clearance stock from big grocery stores. They are sold at less than
regular prices, said Eddie.


and come tell the commission
later," said Conerly.
City Attorney Cliff Ables com-
mented that two actions would
have had to happen. The City
Commission would have to
approve the situation as an emer-
gency and then recess and sit as the
CRA board to approve a resolution
to spend the $32,500 for the
expense which was over the statu-
tory amount the city staff could
approve.
Best said when damage bills are
received, they should be forwarded
to the county.
Lambert wondered how anyone
could file a claim against a
known, pre-existing condition. Was
the county even aware we were
going to fix their road. Give them
the $32,500 bill and any claims,"
he concluded.
Giroux apologized for his action,
promised it would not recur and
said he would get with county
staff as soon as possible.

In other action, the commission:
Accepted a resignation letter
from former District 6 Commis-
sioner Amy McClellan who has
moved out of the county. Elected-to
a four-year term to -begin in
November, Best was sworn in by
Ables and took her seat at the com-
mission table.
Chose Janelle Knight as a
member of the Planning and
Zoning Board to replace Best.
Another vacancy is coming up soon
as Juan Delatorre has moved out of
the community.
Discussed overdue lease pay-
ments and utilities contract with the
proposed operator of a Cuban
restaurant to go into the old
Cranford Building, now called Park
Place, adjacent to Heritage Park at
Main Street and South Seventh
Avenue. The tenant is giving until
today (Thursday) to bring pay-
ments up to date and start his busi-
ness or the city will seek a different
tenant. "Our graciousness has run
out," said commissioners of the
year-long attempt to get a business
at that location, which had been
remodeled with CRA funds.
Previewed sketches of the
murals to be painted on the north
wall of the City Administration
Building south of Heritage Park.
Megan McKibben, director of
Main Street Wauchula Inc., said the
work would be done in several pan-
els, describing a sawmill and tur-.
,pentine still, citrus, cattle, phos-

McKibben said work should
begin within 30 days. The city pro-
ject has been on the Sebring artist's
list for a year and nine months. The
city is to pressure clean and prepare
the primer for the artist to do the
work.
Heard from Olivia Minshew,
community development director
on the mural ordinance and efforts
to streamline the process for
approval. Either the Historic
Preservation Board and/or the Main
Street Board, whoever has a quo-
rum, can review and make recom-
mendations to the Planning and
Zoning Board on people's request
to place a mural on their business.
The ordinance will be up for first
reading at next month's meeting.
Heard an update from Giroux
of his main projects at this time.
Spent quite some time re-
viewing draft ordinance 2006-14,
which amends the city's Unified
Land Development Code. The 19-
page document worked out in a
recent workshop, still had several
changes made on historic commer-
cial and commercial and residential
setbacks, density and when a
Special Exception or Variance
would be needed.
The. ordinance may come up for
first reading at the Oct. 9 meeting.
Approved two ordinances on
first reading and two resolutions.
The ordinances include one for a
second restatement of the plans for
a pension board (which was inad-
vertently never approved in 2000.
Although a third restatement has
been approved, the prior one must
be on record, said Ables.
Another ordinance was a
required budget amendment to rec-
oncile accounts for transfers
between departments, said Brad-
dock. A final one will be done with-
in 60 days after the end of the fiscal
year, Sept. 30, said Braddock.
The resolutions were to allocate
and expend wastewater plant and
other funds, and award a low-
income housing replacement pro-
ject to the low bidder. Minshew
mentioned that there is still money
available for eligible residents for
repair or replacement of a home
damaged by the 2004 hurricanes.
Learned the city's final bud-
get hearing has been rescheduled
for Sept. 25 at 5 p.m. due to a con-
flict in the date first set.

RESTHAVEN NEEDS TO STAY OPEN
Every now and then something comes along to make the hair stand up
on the back of my neck like an old cur dog. The recent crisis evolving at
Resthaven Nursing Home and the County Commission's decision to reduce
funds for it had that effect on me.
Resthaven, in my opinion, has always been a special institution that has
served older people who did not have strong family support or a place to
go.
My father was there for a brief period of time so I can testify to the fact
that Resthaven is special, It is very different from a normal nursing home,
and it provides really good care for the people who live there.
Even though, as a family, we had other options for my father, there are
a lot of people with nothing but a Social Security check and no family.
Unfortunately there will always be some people like that, but as far as I am
concerned we have a moral obligation to keep Resthaven open.
We could set up some kind of fund to pay for people's care in a private
institution in Hardee County, but I am afraid this would never happen.
I have a great deal of respect for the people on our County Commission
and many of them are my personal friends. I realize they have an extreme-
ly difficult job and an awesome responsibility, but I believe the cut in fund-
ing for Resthaven is worth a little more consideration.
I would point out that the modern nursing homes are operated for prof-
it, and fees for care in those institutions far exceed what Medicare and
Social Security is willing to pay. Frankly, as a county, we will not be doing
our duty if we don't maintain this institution for those citizens who simply
don't have other options.
One thing about Resthaven is that it is very different from ordinary
nursing homes. It smells different, the food tends to be more cracker-based,
and people in the community donate deer, beef and other food when they
have it, and it creates a home like atmosphere for the people who live there.
I am vehemently against closing Resthaven, and I didn't realize we
have been giving as little as $50,000 a year to this institution. I realize there
are expensive and complex issues in government, like liability and insur-
ance, but in my opinion it would be a feather in the cap of this commission
Sif they would get their collective heads together with the citizens of this
county and work out a solution to Resthaven's problems.

ZS Changes

Its Monthly

Meeting Day
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The m:lithly meeting of the
Zolfo Springs Town Council has
always been on the second Monday
night of each month.
Never say "never." And never
say "always."
Council members have unani-
mously agreed to change their tra-
ditional meeting day so that their
lawyer will be free to take on a new
client and monthly meeting, the
city of Avon Park.
Zolfo Springs will now meet on
the third Monday of every month.
Sessions will still begin at 7 p.m.,
however, despite one council mem-
ber's bid to switch to an early start
time, too.
One change is enough, fellow
members said. Additionally, the
matter was discussed at a previous
meeting, and met with objections
from a couple town residents who
said a 6 p.m. meeting time would
prevent many working people from
attending.
The change in date was a conces-
sion for long-time city attorney
Gerald Buhr. Buhr also counsels
the cities of Bowling Green and
Mulberry. And when the position
became open, he applied for the
legal work in the city of Avon Park
as well.
But Zolfo Springs and Avon Park
shared a meeting night.
"We appreciate what you've done
for us. We can bend a little,"
Chairman Roger Green said as the
council voted to change its meeting
day.
"I want to thank you very much
for your assistance," Buhr said after
the vote. "I'm loaded up with cities
now," he added, saying he felt cer-
tain no further changes would be
necessary.
The new meeting schedule
begins this month, with the regular
session set for Monday, Sept. 18,
the third Monday night of the
month.

Golf Boys Split Matches


By JC'.N SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wildcat golfers had back-to-back
good golfing in last week's match-
es.
However, on Thursday the 'Cats
hosted Lakeland High in a return
match-up with the Dreadnaughts,
which has been the only squad to
beat Hardee this season.
"Scoring a 156 would beat nine
out of 10 teams, but the Dread-
naughts are an outstanding group
with several shooting under par,"
commented Hardee coach George
Heine.
Senior leader Justin Painter
rounded the Torrey Oaks course in
36 with a pair of birdies. Junior
Kaleb Saunders was next at 37 with
one birdie. Jake Crews came in at
41, James Olliff at 42 with one
birdie, Ben Krause at 43 and Kyle
Cobb at 45.
Earlier in the week, the Cats had
traveled to Lake Wales Country
Club to take on Frostproof and
Sunrise Christian, winning over
both. Hardee charted a 166,
Frostproof 175 and Sunrise over
200.
Again, Painter was the leader,
scoring 38 with one birdie.
Saunders was on his heels with 39,
followed by Krause at 42, Cobb at
47, Olliff at 49 and Brek McCleni-
than at 50.
"We've been shooting pretty
well, and our lower team scores
show it," added Heine.
The boys team hosted Frostproof
and Fort Meade on Tuesday at
Torrey Oaks and travel today'
(Thursday) to Placid Lakes to take
on the Green Dragons. Monday,
and possibly Tuesday, there is com-
petition in the Hawkins Invitational
at Sebring. Next Thursday, Hardee
faces Sebring at the Sun 'N Lakes
course.
Hardee girls finally got a match
in last week, playing at the Imperial.
Lakes course in, Mulberry. "We
probably shouldn't have played, it
was a mud bowl," noted Lady
Wildcat coach Byron Jarnagin.
Hardee placed third, behind host
Mulberry and Frostproof.
Junior Kristen Cumbee and soph
Kirsti Roehm came around the
course in 72 strokes, followed by
senior Ciara Lambert at, 75 and
Kelly Jo Smith at 76.
The Hardee girls will go to the


Hawkins this year. Instead, coach
Andrea Brown will bring her Avon
Park girls to Torrey Oaks for a,
nine-hole challenge.
This week, the girls were. at The
Bluffs to play DeSoto on Tuesday


and host Lake Wales today
(Thursday).. Next week, in addition
to playing Avon Park, the girls g8
to the Lake Wales Country Club
Thursday to play against
Frostproof.


Golden Nuggets i
By Lorraine and John Gillespie i
Alpha & Omega Freedom Ministries of Wauchula


Do you not see and know that your bodies are members of .
Christ? Am I therefore to take the parts of Christ and make them
parts of a prostitute? Never! Never!
I Corinthians 6:15
The Scriptures go on to talk about when a man joins himself to a prosi
titute, he becomes one with her in the flesh. But the person who is united td
the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.
Paul tells us to shun immorality and all sexual sins, including ir
thought, word or deed. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside
the body, but he who commits sexual sins does it against his own body.
If we belong to God, our body is the temple of the'Holy Spirit Who
lives within us, Whom we have received as a gift from God. We are not ou
own, so we are to honor God and bring glory to Him in our body.
If we struggle in these areas, we can cry out to God to help us to over
come and to hate our sin.
A Golden Nugget would be to not sin against the temple of God.

HJHS Football Hits The Turf


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After tryouts and practices, the
Hardee Junior High School
Wildcats are ready to hit the foot-
ball field for real on Tuesday.
The youngest Wildcats have their
games at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays
from Sept. 19 through Oct. 24. The
Heartland Conference schedule
includes five opponents, and a sixth
game against one of the five teams
on a rotating basis. This year,
iHardee's sixth game is a rematch
with rival DeSoto.
The junior 'Cats open their six-
game season on the road, playing at
DeSoto on Tuesday and Avon Park
on Sept. 26, before coming home
for a pair of games, Oct. 3 vs. Hill-
Gustat and Oct. 10 vs. Sebring.
After an Oct. 17 game at Lake
Placid, Hardee greets DeSoto in the
season finale on Oct. 24.
Although they are practicing on
their new field at the more spacious
new Hardee Junior High School,
the junior 'Cats will play their
home games at Wildcat Stadium.."I
hope the players can understand
how special it is to play in Wildcat
Stadium. There's a long history of
games there. It's an honor to step
out there," said HJHS head coach
Gregg White.
He will coach the quarterbacks
along with volunteer assistant
Justin Hays. Co-coaches Hacam
Shweil (defensive ends and tight
ends) and David Beumel (receivers
and defensive backs) join White on
the official staff. Other volunteer
assistants are Myron Refoure (run-
ning backs and linebackers) and
Mike loannidis (offensive and
defensive linemen). White and his
assistants are former Wildcat play-
ers, anxious to follow in the tradi-
tion established.
S"I'm really impressed with our
group this year. We have another
group of honor-roll kids with 2.8 or
3.0 grade point averages. As coach-
es, our goals are about building
"character, not being an athlete stu-
,dent, but a student athlete. Winning
:isn't as important as being a good
citizen at school and home, being a
good reflection of the team and
family. We have three priorities,
God, family and school," said
White.
Starting with 103 signees, the
coaches had 93 actually complete
physical and attend the affection-
ately called "Coach White Camp,"
tryouts. "We couldn't keep them
all; we had to cut to 61. Some of the
seventh graders are a year away
fromi.contributing and. will shine
next year when they have had the
huge advantage of learning our sys-
tem," commented White.
Of the 31 eighth graders on the
squad, 22 'are returnees from the
2005 season.. There are 27 seventh
graders, plus managers Caleb
Abbott, Kaleb Albritton, Manuel
DeLaRosa, Brian Hagans, Timothy
SRice and Caleb Sheffield.

Hardee Girls Run To Victory


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee girls cross country
Steam outran all opponents to win a
quad-meet at Highlands. Hammock
last week.
Hosted by Sebring, the Early
Bird Invitational featured runners
from Lake Placid, Walker
Memorial Academy and Hardee as
well as the host team. Hardee girls
came in with the low score of 47,
followed with Sebring at 51 and
Lake Placid at 70. Walker didn't
have enough girls for a team score
but junior Jessica Ewing won the
girls race in 22:05.
A Sebring runner was second and
Lake Placid third, but Hardee gar-
nered the next three spots to gain
key points. Senior Maricela Galvan
led Hardee in at 27:28, followed by
classmate Mandy Cornelius and
soph Hope Poucher, who crossed
together at 28:08.
Others picking up points for
Hardee were, freshmen Briana
Aguilar, soph Ashley Patarini, and
freshmen Laura Galvan, Guadalupe
Flores and Briana Esquivel.
Coach Don Trew was not able to
field a full varsity squad for the
Sept. 7 boys run, using some JV
runners in place of upper classmen
who are having difficulties getting
their paperwork completed.
As a result, Hardee boys finished
fourth overall, with Sebring win-
ning the run with 33 points, Lake
Placid second with 66, Walker with
67 and Hardee a distant 127.
Two of the Wildcat runners
placed quite high. Soph Justin
Hines was sixth overall at 21:103,
with junior Jean Frenot seventh at
21:12. Other Hardee runners com-
ing in were freshman Nathan
Tomlinson, and sophs Jose Rod-
riguez and Lee Cortez.
This week Hardee varsity run-


ners attend the South Lake Invita-
tional at Clermont on Wednesday'
and University of Florida run at
Gainesville on Saturday. "Both will
offer strong competition," said
Trew.
Coming up is the Pioneer Invita-
tional at Zolfo Springs on Tuesday,
Sept. 19. That run starts at 4:30
p.m. Hardee's annual Alumni Run
is at the high school on Sept. 26 at
5 p.m. All former Wildcat and Lady


Wildcat runners, faculty and staff
are welcome. For more informa-
tion, call Trew at 773-3181 or e-
mail him at dtrew@hardee.K-
12.fl.us.

The final home cross country
runs are the Little Cypress Invita-
tional at 4:30 on Oct. 3 at Little
Cypress Golf Course and the Oct.
17 Hardee Lakes Invitational at 5
p.m.

BUDGET
The Florida Citrus Commission has approved a budget for the '*
Florida Department of Citrus utilizing the 2006/07 crop. Of most discussion -.-
was the processed orange tax rate, which was ultimately approved at $.22 ,,
per box. The Commission also set the tax rates for other varieties of citrus,
which are processed grapefruit $.35, fresh grapefruit $.35, and fresh orange ;
$.16. Increases stem from smaller storm impacted crops in recent years ",'
bringing in less revenue to conduct advertising, no carry-over from year to ,
year and no federal or state funding to offset grower taxes.

EXEMPTIONS .,
Agricultural producers are now exempt from sales tax on farm elec- ,
tricity. The exemption covers virtually all aspects of a farmer or rancher's
business operation, including the preparation, planting, cultivating, har-
vesting and processing of agricultural products. It includes aquaculture,
horticulture, floriculture, viticulture, forestry, dairy, livestock, poultry, bees
and any or all forms of farm products.
To qualify for the exemption, agricultural producers must furnish their
utility provider with an exemption certificate stating that the electricity will
be used directly and exclusively for the production or processing of agri- .
cultural products. Producers can contact the Florida Department of. ;
Revenue for forms and other information about the exemption at ,,
http://www.myflorida.com/dor/ or they can call the agency's taxpayer ser-
vices section at 1-800-352-3671 or (850) 488-6800. Forms are also avail-
able from PRVCGA's office (773-2466). .

AGREEMENTS
The Florida Department of Agriculture distributed new versions of the ,
state's compliance agreements for grove & caretakers and for fresh fruit.,
movement. Growers should have received mailed copies of the agree-
ments by the state. If not, they can be found at http://www.doacs.- '4
state.fl.us/pi/canker/index.html.
Growers should read over the agreements carefully. Fresh growers .
must sign up for the pre-harveSt inspection or will not be able to harvest
fruit for the fresh mrgket:'iProcessed growers should also read the compli-
ance agreement carefully and be aware of the provisions. Although they are.
less restrictive than in the past, they still have several requirements you
should understand. The biggest change is the need to have a Citrus Health
Response Plan, which can be compared to the business plan required in the
past. Also, you may only do business with others who have a Citrus Health ,
Response plan in place. This is a new statement.
Growers must allow inspection of their records (CHRP Plan), training,
decontamination, etc. Decontamination is required upon departure from
the grove. All citrus trees planted in new or established groves must be cer- ,
tified disease-free and obtained from a citrus nursery registered with the
Department and under a Citrus Nursery Compliance Agreement.
We have also received the latest draft of the Citrus Health Response ",
Plan and have posted it on our web site at www.prvcga.org. You can also
obtain a copy from the association office.

FUNDING PROGRAMS
Two new cost share funding programs are available to growers who are.-
interested in improving water quality in their groves and are participants in. '
Best Management Practices. First, the Facilitating Agricultural Resource!.
Management Systems Program (FARMS) program has added the newly'
created Mini-FARMS Program. It is designed to assist small-acreage grow-
ers (growers with 100 irrigated acres of less) on water resource projects that' :
reduce water use, improve water quality or assist in the conservation and','
restoration of natural systems. ''

table observation wells, water-control structures, weather stations and other '
Water conservation methods approved by the local Soil and Water'*.
ConserVation District Boards. Maximum funding is set at $8,000 of cost- -'
share reimbursement per project.
Larger projects, for aquatic weed barriers, flashboard water control ris-
ers, lowv.volume irrigation systems, precision application equipment grade:
stabilization, water retention, agrichemical mixing stations, water observa--'
tion wells and soil moisture measurement devises are eligible for cost-share ''
funding under a program offered by the Florida Department of Agriculture-'

Hardee Grad LL World Series Ump


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Wauchula native received hon-
ors at the Little League World
Series this year.
Greg Archambault, who was
born and raised here, playing Little
League baseball and going on to
play Hardee Wildcat baseball in
high school, carried his interest in
the sport to action behind the plate.


ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

MONDAY
Breakfast: Cereal, Doughnut,
Juice, Yogurt, Milk -
Lunch: Chicken Fryz or Sausage

After 30 years of working at it,
Archambault was selected as one of
10 umpires across the United
States to officiate at the Senior
League World Series (ages 15-16)
held in Bangor, Maine in mid-
August.
Archambault, a former fireman
and assistant chief in Wauchula,
moved to Fort Myers over 20 years
ago. He was featured in the Aug.
13, 2006, issue of the Fort Myers
News Press by writer Chris
Umpierre, accompanied by a huge
photo of Archambault making a
call at the plate in a recent
Southwest Florida league game.
Umpierre described how, turning
50 in August, Archambault has no
plans to quit umpiring. He worked
-his way up, doing both college and
high school games as well as Little
League competition at various


ages. In 2001 he was chosen to
umpire in the Little League
Southern Regional and did well,
leading to his selection for this
year's top games, where an umpire
from Canada, one from Puerto Rico
and 10 from the U.S. were chosen.
Working the early game of the
tournament, he was selected as the
top umpire of the series and voted
to umpire at the plate for the cham-
pionship game between Hawaii and
Venezuela, reports his proud mom,
Jeanne Archambault, formerly of
Wauchula and now living in
Valrico.
It's a long way from Wauchula to
Bangor, Maine, but Archambault
has made it a lifelong goal. Next in
line is selection to umpire a Little
League World Series at Williams-
port, Pa., the home of Little
League.

Now let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare:
1. Florida at Tennessee Chris Leak, either displaying senior leader-
ship or pushed by Tim Tebow, is having a great start to his last season as a
tty Gator. Having outscored two CUSA teams by a total of 66-7, UF invades
or Knoxville for the always anticipated showdown with the Vols. UT is on a
& mission to erase the memory of 2005 for its part. Look for a good one in the
iel Smokies with UF on top at the end by a score of 34-30.
nd 2. Maryland at West Virginia A good border clash that will come to
end soon. Seems Maryland, in ACC fashion, would rather schedulee
William and Mary and other I-AA teams for OCC opponents now that the
ACC is expanded. Tdo bad, this has been'a great rivalry. Steve Slaton,
ed WVU running back, l\ed the nation in rushing after week one but only
Splayed in-two series this week gaining 100 yards. ESPN's John Saunders
or calls him a smart pick fbr the Heisman. WVU 41 Maryland 17.
ed 3.' Miami at Louisville The Cards have lost All-American back
's, Michael Bush along with top corer Rod Council and an offensive lineman
for the season. Brian rBrohm will still pass Louisville to another home win
in this one. They may not score over 60 against this former Big East team
ts, like they did the last one (Temple) but 40 is not out of the question.
Louisville 41 Miami 23.
or 4. Marshall at Kansas State The last time Marshall went to
or Manhattan to face the then-6th-ranked Wildcats, the Herd came home with
to, a victory. After scoring 50 this week, the Herd is ready to Thunder again.
:e, Marshall 31 Kansas State 24.
'ry 5 Clemson at FSU The Tigers are probably still trying to figure out
.how they could lose.at home to a team like Boston College. While they are
thinking about it, FSU sends them home 1-2. FSU'24 Clemson 20.
Sh, 6. LSU, at Auburn The SEC is taking center stage this week with
prime time games here and in Knoxville. Look for a WAR on the Plains of
or Auburn with the home team defending its turf. Auburn 33 LSi 30.
ito 7. Wofford at South Carolina Spurrier may need this one before the
nd rest of the SEC schedule. Would be nice to see former Hardee Wildcats,
Rashad Vance and Brian Kemp, spark an upset for the Terriers) though.
South Carolina 38 Wofford 13.
8. USF at UCF The Bulls may have a hard time winning in
Orlando. Struggling with Florida International was inexcusable. They
jumped all over the Knights in Tampa. last year, so the Knights have
ut; revenge on their minds.UCF did not fair well in Gainesville either but the
ed loss to the Gators won't hamper them for this rival game. UCF 28 USF 27.
S 9. UAB at Georgia Dawgs take care of business in this contest with
,ar a CUSA foe. UGA 41 UAB 13.
'10. Mississippi at Kentucky Good matchup between the mid level
SEC. UK in a squeaker. UK 33 Ole Miss 30.
11. La-Monroe at Alabama The Tide barely escaped with Vandy!
tty They better get it in gear for the rest of the SEC schedule. A date with
Florida is coming up soon. Alabama 45 La-Monroe 10.
ch 12. Michigan at Notre Dame Big traditional game. Michigan is try-
-n, iirto come back strong after an off year in 2005. A win in South Bend
Iu would be the medicine to make them feel a lot better. Michigan 34 Notre
,Dame 31.
13. Nebraska at Southern Cal The Huskers are good again but not
ed to the level they once were. USC seems to have just reloaded. USC 42
Nebraska 21.
d, 14. Michigan State at Pitt The Panthers have Dave Wannstedt grin-
;s, ning.at 2-0. The Big East needs another win over a name Big 10 team and
the Panthers, led by Tyler Palko,deliver it. Pitt 34 Michigan State 20.
15. Ohio at Rutgers The Scarlet Knights are enjoying their best
s start in years. Rice and Leonard on the ground and Teel through the air have
the rest of the Big East noticing the change. Rutgers 45 Ohio 17.
e!d 16. Tampa at Atlanta If Simms has another outing like the Ravens
en game, the Bucs will be down 0-2 early in 06 .Hopefully, the loss will fire.
nd up the Bucs. Atlanta 16 Tampa 13.
17. Buffalo at Miami Bills are not a gimme in 06. Fish have to
rebound though. Miami 23 Buffalo 20.
18. Houston at Indianapolis --Peyton's Place, Nuff said. Indy 38
h, Houston 20.
e 19. New England at N.Y. Jets Chad Pennington is back and better
than ever, at least after game one analysis. The Pats struggled with Buffalo
& but, as usual, found a way to win. Champions do that. Pats 27 Jets 24.
id 20. N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia McNabb starts the season in great
fashion. Can Eli counter? Philadelphia 30 Giants 23.

A Daily Thought

THURSDAY
O God, in ages past You laid the
foundations of the earth, and
made the heavens with Your
hands! They shall perish, but
You go on forever ... But You
SYourself never grow old. You are
forever, and Your years never
end.
Psalm 102:25-26a, 27 (TLB)

FRIDAY
We, therefore, make it ow ~mbi-
:tibn, wherever we are, here or
there, to be acceptable to Him
(the Lord). For we must all have
our lives laid open before the tri-
bunal of Christ, where each
must receive what is due him for
his conduct in the body, good or
bad.
SCoririthians,5:9-10 (NEB)


SATURDAY .
Then, if My people, who are
called by My name, are sorry for
what they have done, if they
pray and obey Me and stop their
evil ways, I (God) will hear them
from Heaven, I will forgive their
sin, and I will heal their land.
II Chronicles 7:14 (NCV) ,

SUNDAY
They will make war on the Lamb
(of God), and the Lamb will con-
quer them; For He is the Lord of
lords, and King of kings, and
those with Him are the called
and chosen and faithful.
Rev. 17:14 (RSV)

MONDAY
Therefore, say, "This is what the
Sovereign Lord says, "I will
gather you from the nations and
bring you back from the coun-
tries where you have been scat-
tered, and I will give you back
the land of Israel again."
Ezekiel 11:17 (NIV)

TUESDAY
That is why God has now lifted
Him so high, and has given Him
the Name beyond all names, so
that at the name of Jesus every
knee shall bow, whether in
Heaven as on earth or under the
earth. And that is why, in the
end, every tongue shall confess
that Jesus Christ is the\Lord to
the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:10-11 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
Then Job replied to the Lord. I
know that You can do all things;
no plan of Yours can be thwart-
ed... Surely I spoke of things I
did not understand, things too
wonderful for me to know ...
My ears had heard of You, but
now my eyes have seen You

Devasting serves and kills shut
_out the Lady Wildcat volleyball
squad in its only match last week.
Coach Ken Leupold had hoped
his short-handed team would do
better against the 2-4 Braden River
team which was 0-3 in the tough
Class 4A District competition it
faces. When it was over, Braden
River had its first district win,
while Hardee dropped to 1-4 in dis-
trict play and 3-4 overall.
"The girls played real hard and
I'm not disappointed in their
efforts. They just had some prob-
lems with the net serves. I'm really
impressed with their (Braden
River) serves. We started blocking
the returns and serves better at the
end, timing our blocks better.
Overall, I was pleased with them,"
said Leupold, who had to do with-
out the services of three starters
who sat out the games for discipli-
nary reasons.
Hardee never quit and continued
to battle the Lady Pirates until the
final point in the three successive
games.
Game one was tied at 1-1 and 2-
1 and the Lady Cats led 5-3 behind
the serving of Danielle "Dani"
Hines. Freshman phenom Regina
Aluise served to take her Pirate
team to a 15-5 advantage, several
serves skimming the net and drop-
ping over with little room for a
return. Madison Graham brought
Hardee back to 15-9 and Megan
White added points to close to 20-
16 before Braden River closed it


out 25-19 behind the Aluise serve.
In game two, Braden River had
first serve, with soph Meggan
Staats reeling off a few points to
give her team a lead they would not
give up. Hardee narrowed it to 6-4
before Aluise came up and put the
Lady Pirates in front 13-5. And so it
went, but Hardee would not quit.
With Hines serving, the Lady Cats
came from a 24-16 deficit before
the.Bradenton team could get the
final point.
White started Hardee off well in
game three and kept ahead for a 4-
2, then 6-3 lead off good net play
by soph Krystin Robertson, White,
Hines, Graham and D.K. Davis.
With Robertson serving, Hardee
came back from a deficit but could
not get over the hump. White got a
couple more points to make it 12-
15, but Braden River was success-
ful hitting off the Hardee blocks
and upped the lead to 19-13.
Davis got Hardee back to 15-19
but Sarah Tickner served out to
give her team the 25-17 game and
match point.
For the three games, DaVis had
four aces and seven good services.
She also had 15 kills, with White
adding 11 and and Graham seven.


In Business
By Brett Jarnagin



BALLOON BOUNTY A rather unique service is now available in
Hardee County.
Tammy Kirk began the new business, Decorating With Balloons,
around a month ago. Since then she has been working out of her house,
catering to all sorts of occasions with her balloon creations.
This is not her first business venture,'however. Several years ago, Kirk
'ran Tammy's Video in Bowling Green and a day care called Imagination
Island.
Kirk is an artist who crafts intricate shapes out of balloons .aid a fe,
other accessories. "I wanted to show everyone that you can decorate witfi
balloons and still be elegant," she said.
From arches and columns to decorate a wedding reception to baby bot-
tles and pacifiers for a baby shower, her balloons mold to the theme.
Kirk started out doing hand-made balloon creations for her family. '1
guess I just wanted do something different," she said. At first it would take
her hours to blow up the balloons and then shape them by hand.
Now she has a machine that assists her with inflating them, allowing
her to shorten the length of time it takes to create a shape. "For a column,
it would take me about 45 minutes," Kirk said. I :
According to Kirk, only the highest grade balloons are used in her crg-
ations. They are of better and consistent shape than those found in most
stores, and are biodegradable. *
Anyone wishing to add a bit of flair to their inxt soiree should giyl
Kirk a call to place an order with Decorating With Bal-ns at 781-0749.4

Letter To The Editor

Rally Is Planned Sept. 16

For Jean Claude Meus


Dear Editor:
Finally we have a voice! I am
referring to: Operation Free Jean
Claude Meus. Although I have read
many editorials about the injustice
in the Jean Claude Meus case and.
written and spoken myself witl.
many members of this community,
there is more power in numbers,,
and that is what we have now. The
editorials have been great and
should continue to pour in to the
newspaper.
Jean Claude is the fiancee of my
sister, Rebecca Chenoweth, and we
dearly love hiin. We have found out
through the injustice done to him
the havoc wreaked upon the fami-
lies of those with innocent loved.
ones behind prison bars.
I I attended the meeting held in-
Avon Park by this wonderful group
of business leaders and concerned
citizens who have followed this
base and are aghast that Jean
Claude is still in prison when facts
have shown that this man should
have never been behind bars in the
first place. If ever a legal case was
wrong from the start, this one defi-
nitely was.-
At the meeting I had the oppor-
tunity to listen to Ashley Moore's
recall of the events that tragic night.
'14Now a beautiful young woman at
the age of 17, she vividly recalls
that fateful night she lost her. moth-
er and younger sister.
iShe remembers hearing. the
warning blare of Jean Claude's
'hrn and the lights coming towards
the van. She also recalls how Jean
,.Claude came to. her as she was
trapped in the van and reassured
her that she was not going to die.
She questions why the authori-


ties never asked her what occurred
that night since she was definitely a
witness. Her mother proudly smiles
down from Heaven at her.-
My children and I will be part of
the rally being held on Saturday,
Sept. 16, in front of the Hardee
County Courthouse at 12 noon to
show our outrage at this injustice
done to this loving man we know.
-We will also be writing letters
stating our feelings and sending
them to the P.O. box Patricia Austin
has set up just for:the letters from
-the c6mfmunity. These letters will
not only help with getting justice
locally but will also be-hand deliv-
ered to Governor Bush.
If you need to contact Patricia
Austin she can be reached at 453-
'4008. There is also an e-mail
address for this cause. That is
op_free_jcmeus2006 @earth-
link.net. The address to send the
letters to is JCM, P.O. Box 2000,-
Avon Park, FL 33826-2000.
Three people lost their lives in
that tragic accident on SR 64. Nona
and Lindsey Moore died instantly
and are in the arms of their Maker.
Jean Claude lost his the day that he
was put behind bars for something
that was an unavoidable and hor-
rendous accident.
Please help in giving ,Jean'
Claude back his life by not only
writing letters and mailing them to
the P.O, box but by attending the
rally being held bn the 16th. This is
. our last chance to save this man
from being a victim of the legal.
system.

WHAT DO THE YOUNG PEOPLE THINK?
During the .month of, May, the Hardee County Drug Prevention
Coalition sponsored'an essay contest to find out what ideas our youth have
about how to stay drug free. The contest proved to be very interesting.
Each member of the coalition.read all the entries and.voted for the five
best. These students, all from Hardee Junior High School, will receive an
award of $25 from the coalition and will:have their essays published in the
newspaper. The teachers of the student winners will receive $50 for supplies
for their classrooms.
Lindsay Moon from Kathy Mulcay's class was selected as the top win-
ner.
The other winners include Alejandra Gonzalez anid Tabathft Prestridge
from April Rogers' class; Gregory Garza from Libby Moore's class; Mayra
Nolasco-Cruz froni Kimberly McGuckin's class; and Brenda Miranda from
Lori Bromley's class.
Effective prevention teaches skills and life lessons such as: knowing the
facts, walking away, choosing friends who are not involved with risky.
behaviors, having alternative ideas for fun and relaxation, and setting goals
for.the future. -
This contest showed, many youngg people do have a plan for staying
away from drugs. Here is the top essay: : ;,
I Plan To Stay Drug Free!
By Lindsay Moon
I'm drug free and proud! Some ways I can stay drug free are extracur-
ricular activities, thinking'how drugs can affect my future, and saying no to
peer pressure and temptations. It's very important for me to stay drug free.
I have all my life to look forward to and I don't need to mess it up now!
I'mi involved in many extracurricular activities. I cheer, go to church,
represent Student Council, I'm a member of Honor Society, yearbook staff,
and I have a little brother to look after. I don't have time to do drugs.
S Besides extracurricular-activities, I have to think about how taking
drugs could affect my future. I can't have a good education if I've fried all
my brain cells by abusing drugs. No one wants to hire a drug addict either.
Finally, I'll say no to peer pressure and temptations. Many people have
.given into peer pressure. I'll cHoose the right friends to hang out with. I
have to stay away from temptations. For example, when people get invited
to a party with music, friends, and no parents, they don't think twice before
going. When they say no parents, most-likely there will be drugs. Even
though the party sounds funi I won't.go because there'll be peer pressure and
I don't want to get involved.
To conclude,.'ll-always stay' fug free. Ways I can stay drug free are
extracurricular activities, thinking how drugs could affect my future, aind
saying no to peer pressure. I want to set a good example for others. It's very
important for me to stay drug free so I can live life to the fullest.

Light One Candle
By Dennis Heaney
-' President Of The Christophers

THE OTHER SIDE OF SUCCESS
While you can't tell a book by its cover; it's also true that a thought-pro-
voking title for a book or a catchy headline can make you want to discover
what it's about..I felt that way when I saw the "BusinessWeek" article "How
Failure Breeds Success:". The premise: the very best businesses don't just
expect mistakes to happen, they embrace them and learn from them.
Since success is the be-all and end-all of business, youhave to give
credit to people and organizations that are willing to look long and hard at
failures, examine what went wrong and why and go on to do better.
Most of us aren't comfortable spending much time thinking about our mis-
takes:.In fact, the greater the distance we can put between ourselves and our
.blunders, the happier we are. Failure is bad enough, but the fear of the con-
sequences can be devastating. Knowing that your job and your reputation
are on the line can make anybody want to play it safe.
One example in the "BusinessWeek" story was Intuit Inc., which last
year targeted youngg people with a media campaign designed to get them to
use their tax-preparation services. It bombed. But instead of running for
cover, the original development team did an in-depth postmortem of the
whole project and camne'iip-with useful,insights. This proved so valuable
that the company chairman Scott Cook'gavethe.team a special award, say-
ing "It's only a failure if.we fail to .,.. learn ;;."
: Remember the Edsel? In 1957, it was the Titanic of the auto industry.
But by 1964, Ford's research enabled it to offer its customers stylish afford-
ability with the classic Mustang. Ray Kroc, founder of McDonald's, was
looking for a meatless sandwich, but his Hula, Burger (grilled pineapple
topped with cheese) didn't have many takers (I wonder why). They kept
looking for a better option and found it in their Filet-O-Fish. Does anyone
recall Apple's Lisa line of computers in the 1980s?.They were slow and
expensivee. but Apple's. further, research led to the popular, user-friendly
Macintosh. : '. : ,'
Failure can do more than teach us: it can inspire us to excel. One of my
Favorite stories of success built on failure is that of Roger Bannister. At the
1952 Helsinki Olympics, most track and field fans expected him to take
home the gold medal for Great Britain ini the 1;500 meter. He expected it
himself. But after being jostled during the race, he.never really contended
and ended up a disappointing fourth. But, instead of letting failure have the
last word and retiring from competition, he set:his sights on breaking the
four-minute mile.
S-. For years, the idea of shattering that barrier had become the target of
runners the world over. even though some said it was humanly impossible.
Bannister, then a medical student, kept training and,-two years later, he
Stroke the f6ur-minute mark by. six-tenths of a second. His feat'was hailed
around the globe.
One of the most intriguing things about Bannister's achievement was
that, within three years, 16 runners had run the rile in under four minutes.
One man shattered a barrier not only of time and speed, but of determina-
tion and resolution. Today, the record has been broken many times, and cur-
rently stands at 3:43.13, setby Moroccan Hicham El Guerrouj in 1999.
Bannister. who went on to be a respected neurosurgeon and college
president, later said, "My failure made me look for one more challenge."
That's the good thing about failure: it won't stop you in your tracks
unless you let it.

'Cats K.O. Pirates; Greet Barons Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats handed a
shellacking to the Port Charlotte
Pirates last week.
The Cats completely shut down


the Pirate attack and took advan-
tage of every opportunity for a
score of their own, including a safe-
ty, in the 44-0 victory.
This week the Wildcats take on
the St. Petersburg Catholic Barons,

which are sporting a 1-2 record.
After an opening 29-24 win over
Lake Highland, the Barons have
lost close games to Clearwater
Central Catholic and then Tampa
Jesuit, which won last week 32-29
on a last second field goal.
Hillsborough County and Baron
outstanding Jock Sanders running
back was held to just 91 yards. The
Barons also feature senior quarter-
back David Giraradi, who is famil-
iar with Hardee after the 34-10 loss
to the Wildcats last season.
"The Barons are good athletics,
with one of the top running backs
and a quarterback who likes to
throw. They will spread us out.
They are big up front, use a seven-
man front and will match up
against our guys. We will have to
stay on our blocks if our running
backs are to break it loose," said
Bryan. "Weston (Palmer-quarter-
back) is getting more comfortable
with our system every week. You
can run it in practice, but in the
game situation, it's different. He
watches the film and sees things
every week."
Against Class 5A Port Charlotte
last week, Hardee came out with a
strong game on its mind. "Port
Charlotte had snme injuries and it


depends on the 11 you can put on
the field," commented Hardee head
coach Derren Bryan.
"I was pleased that we came out
in the second half intent on 'finish-
ing the ball game,' and not letting
Port Charlotte sneak back in it.
"We're still having troubles with
fumbles, just not getting the ball in
the pocket securely while we carry
it," Bryan added.
Junior running back Jimmy
Cimeus was sidelined and remains
day-to-day, as does senior line-
backer Andrew Cisneros who
sprained an ankle on the first or
second play of the game.
Bryan said he was able to get
everyone in the game, noting


sophomore lineman Alex Lanier,
who "is working into the starting
rotation and works hard to learn it."
Bryan named the starting offen-
sive line and tight ends as the
Offensive Players of the Week,
naming Tyrone Pace, Kyle Parrish,
Haceem Shweil, Dan Timmons,
Cameron Durham, Jacob Bena-
vides, Onel Virgile and Jermaine
King for their contributions.
Defensively, soph David New-
comb took Player of the Game hon-
ors, for eight tackles, two for a loss,
and a sack.
Senior kicker Pablo Anselmo
took Special Teams Player of the
Week with six-for-six on conver-
sion kicks, several kickoffs into the


end zone and a saving tackle:
On the Scout Team Of the Week
are lineman lan Durrance and
defensive end/tight end Kriss
Rossman.
Joining in the tackle parade were
Ricky Wiggins with eight tackles
and a sack for a safety; Johnny Ray
Harris, 8.5 tackles and a sack; Terry
Redden, five tackles and an inter-
ception (one every game so far);
Briant Shumard, six tackles, two
for a loss, and several pass
breakups; Logan Thomas, four
tackles; and Lanier, three tackles.

Avon Park, Bartow, Frostproof,
Lakeland George Jenkins, Lake
Placid, Lake Region, Mulberry and
the host Sebring squad, Hardee was
Sable to pick up second-place points
in two events in Saturday's daylong
' event.
The Invitational is sponsored by
Tim and Martile Blackman annual-
ly. Sebring won both divisions, tak-
ing both the girls and boys titles.
Some of the other teams, like.
Hardee, had some swimmers miss-


ing because of work or family
plans.
The relay-only meet gives coach-
es an opportunity to try swimmers
in a variety of events and, perhaps,
learn some unknown strengths of
their swimmers, said Hardee coach
Dick Daggett.
Hardee teams both placed fifth of
the nine teams involved. For the
Lady Wildcats, it was victories over
Avon Park, Bartow, Mulberry and
Frostproof. The Wildcats also won
over the same four teams.

Davis, Katie Jernigan, Kaitlin
Justice and. Courtney Nicholson ..
combined to place second, behind
Sebring's A team .and'-ahead bfthe -
Jenkins A squad and several others.

Sarah Ezelle, Katiana "Kitty"
Pesquera andAlicia Revell finished
in the middle of the pack.
The co-ed team of Nicholsonand
Justice, along with Casey Brutus
and Tyler Robertson placed second
behind Jenkins and ahead of all the
other squads in the co-ed 200
freestyle. Chelsea Goolsby, Jerni-
gan, Joshua Rickett and Chris Reid
earned eighth-place points.
Hardee girls also added a third-
place finish in the 200 backstroke.
The 'Cats had third-place points in
both the 400 freestyle and 200
freestyle.relays.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

HAVE YOU MADE THE CONNECTION?
Millions of believers are agreed that our heavenly Father is all-power- -
ful and all-knowing. They lift their voices in praise every Sunday acknowl-
edging His greatness.
But how many acknowledge the richness, the privilege and the glory of
being sons and daughters of such a God? And how many act like this in their
eryday lives?
The Apostle John wrote about this in 1 John 3:1: "How great is the love
e Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God, and
at is what we are."
Conversion is a supernatural act in which ruined sinners are forgiven
d recreated as members of another family. They are not natural people
Almost anybody can make an effort to clean up their language, quit bad.
bits and come to church more regularly. This is different. It's a change
om the inside out. We literally become "new creatures" because of our
ith in Christ. His grace supports us. His words nourish us. His example
Inspires us.
It is not enough to acknowledge how great God is. We must make the
connection between His life and ours and start walking and talking like the
One who is now our Father!

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Lady Wildcat swim
team came through at the end,
eking out a 148-146 victory over
Avon Park at its pool.
"All the races were close for first,
second and third place, a lot of bat-
tling for those points. We started
out with a 19-point deficit with no
divers and Avon Park assured of
those points, but our girls came
back strong and got within six
points at the final event, the 400
freestyle relay. We needed to win
and have our second squad get at
least third-place points," explained
Hardee coach Dick Daggett.
"The girls came through and
were so excited. They are such a
young group, filling voids, compet-
ing strong against juniors and
seniors. They will be so strong in
the next couple of years. We have a
couple working on dives and they
may be ready for that by the
Heartland or district meets," he
continued.
The Hardee girls have just two
seniors new to the sport, one veter-
an junior, and nine sophs and four
frosh.
Hardee boys placed a close sec-
ond in Thursday's meet, despite
getting seven first-place finishes.
They were without the services of
junior Tony Stevens and was down
to 11 swimmers. "Avon Park just
had more depth," commented
Daggett. Hardee lost 139-126.
:Hardee girls took second and
fourth place in the opening 200
medley relay. Soph Courtney
Nicholson got the girls on the win-
ning track with a victory in the 200
freestyle by over five seconds. Alex
White, Chelsea Goolsby and Jahna
Davis picked up third-, fourth- and
seventh-place points. Avon Park
was only up 24-23.
Becky Quinones, the only Lady
Wildcat in the 200 individual med-
ley split the two Lady Devil con-
tenders to pick up six more points.
Soph Kaitlin Justice won the 50
freestyle, with Jahna Davis in third

third, fourth and fifth place.
In the 200 freestyle relay, Hardee
teams placed second and fourth.
Jernigan, Goolsby, White and
Jahna Davis were second and
Quinones, Beck, Heather Kouns
and Cowart were fourth.
Justice led Hardee back by win-
ning the 100 backstroke. Quinones
was third, Jernigan fourth and
Ezelle fifth, adding 20 points to
Hardee's side of the ledger, and
narrowing the score to 126-124.
Although Wiggins won the 100
breaststroke and Kouns placed
fifth, Avon Park picked up 15
points for second, third and fourth
place finishes. The Lady Devils led
141-135.
Down to the finale. Nicholson,
Jernigan, Wiggins and Justice won
the 400 freestyle and the second
team of Beck, Revell, Goolsby and
Ezelle placed a strong third. The
girls combined for 13 points to just
five for Avon Park, enabling
Hardee to win the meet 148-146.
Meanwhile, Hardee boys started
out ahead, winning the 200 medley


relay. Tyler Robertson, Casey
Brutus, Joe Porter and Chris Reid
combined for a season's best
2.04.72.
Soph Dusty Spears continued the
trend, winning the 200 freestyle,
although Avon Park placed second
and third and got more combined
points to narrow the score to 18-16
but still in Hardee's favor.
Hardee fell behind when Porter
and Sean McCandless placed third
and fourth in the hotly contested
200IM. Hardee got another

in Avon Park's favor.

Otallah sixth, combining for a
dozen Hardee points. Robertson's
win in the 100 butterfly made it
Avon Park 68, Hardee 59.

second over four Avon Park com-
petitors in the 100 freestyle. The.
many Red Devil points, however,
kept it a nine-point spread, 82-73.
An Avon Park swimmer won the
500 free, but Hardee added second
by Rickett and third by Adcox to
put Hardee down just 90-84.


In the 200 feestyle relay, howev-
er, Avon Park placed first and
third, while Hardee was second and
fourth. Placing fourth, fifth and
sixth in the 100 backstroke dropped
the 'Cats farther behind.
Brutus and Porter placed first and
second and Spears fifth in the 100
breakstroke, getting 17 points to
just nine for Avon Park.
Hardee's team of Reid, Rickett,
Robertson and Brutus won the 400
freestyle relay, but Avon Park got
second and third place to win the
meet 139-126.
Hardee swimmers were in the
Blackman Relays on Saturday at
Sebring.
This week, they went Tuesday to
Avon Park for a tri-meet with
Bartow. The 'Cats attend a quad-
meet at Avon Park on Sept. 19, with
Sebring and Lake Placid joining
Hardee at the event.
Hardee returns home for the final
home meet on Sept. 26 against
Mulberry and Lake Gibson.

Politics is not like an ocean voy-
age or a military campaign...
something which leaves off as
soon as reached. It is not a pub-
lic chore to be gotten over with.
It is a way of life.

"played real well, although it does-
n't show on the stat sheet, causing
muffed punts along with Briant
(Shumard)." Soph Postene
Louisjeune also got in some qual-
ity time," and junior Marwin
Simmons had four tackles and three
pass breakouts, reported defensive
coordinator John Sharp.
"Overall, the kids stepped up and
produced for us. We will see both
the running and passing game this
week, and hopefully will see good,
sound leadership," said Sharp.
Hardee won the coin toss and
deferred to the second half as the
cheerleaders urged the Wildcats to
"Sink The Pirates."
The opening Anselmo kickoff
went into the end zone for a touch-
back at the 20-yard line. Pirate


quarterback Kevin McLafferty
handed to senior running back
Jason Myers who met Redden after
going only three yards. A pass to
Victor Candelaria was completed
with a 12-yard gain. A couple of
uncompleted passes later, and the
Pirates punted.
Redden took it on the move and
eluded a couple of tacklers before
being brought down on the 'Cat 38.
A late hit penalty on Port Charlotte
moved the ball across midfield.
Jayquan Gandy, Palmer and
Herman Patterson (stepping in for
Cimeus), alternated toting the foot-
ball to the Pirate 8-yard line, where
a fumble gave it away.
When punting it back, a high
snap and hurried kick gave Hardee
the ball at the Wildcat 44. On the
first play from scrimmage, Palmer
faked to Patterson and slipped
through the line and ran untouched

56 yards to the end zone. The
Anselmo kick was good. With less
than three minutes left in 'the first
period, Hardee had a 7-0 lead.
Simmons, Jason Jester, Wiggins,
Gandy, Newcomb, Lanier, Krause,
Wade Mahoney, Patterson and
Villegas lined up across the field
for the Anselmo kickoff, which
went into the end zone for another
touchback. Port Charlotte lost
ground and was forced to punt on a
fourth-and 28. Redden brought it
back to the Pirate 18.
On the first play in the second
stanza,. Palmer weaved his way
through the line and ran 16 yards
for another TD, with Anselmo con-
necting on the PAT to make it 14-0,
just six seconds into the period.
Again Port Charlotte was forced
to punt. With another good Redden
runback, Hardee started on the
Pirate 17. One pass was broken up.
Then, Palmer found King in the left
side of the end zone for a touch-
down. A little over 95 seconds had
gone by. Hardee upped its lead to
21-0.
Another sack forced Port
Charlotte to punt again. Hardee
started at its 43 and worked its way
downfield, eating up the clock. On
.a reverse, Lisnell Youyoute missed
a couple of tackles and got to the
Pirate 18. After the water break,
Hardee coughed up the football,
giving it to Port Charlotte deep in
its own territory.
At the 1:28 mark, a fumble
returned the ball to Hardee at the
18. One pass was incomplete. A lat-
eral went to Youyoute, who fol-
lowed Patterson down the field, but
stepped on the sideline at the 4. .
Gandy went into the end zone on
the next play. Just before halftime,
,Hardee led 28-0.
Hardee. had first possession to
start the second half, starting at the
45 after a good 43-yard runback by
Youyoute. Patterson broke through
the line for 17 yards and a pass
went to King for 22 yards. Finally,
Patterson went off left tackle to the
end zone. Less than two minutes
into the half, Hardee let 35-0.
A penalty against Port Charlotte
was assessed on the kickoff, with
Anselmo kicking the ball through
the uprights, but it was just another
touchback. A sack three plays later
put the Pirates in a tough position.
For the first time in the evening,
Hardee was held without a first
down and forced to punt.
Port Charlotte was at its 10-yard
line after a Lanier tackle on the
punt return. A penalty put .the-
Pirates back to the five-yard line
and Wiggins stopped the runner for
a two-yard loss. When McLafferty
went back to pass, Wiggins sacked
him in the end zone for a safety.
Hardee's lead was 37-0.
On the free kick, Hardee started
on its own 14, abut got out of trou-
ble as Gandy regained his balance
and kept going for a 23-yard run.
Jordan Grimsley took turns carry-
ing the football, getting a nice 19-
yard gain, before Gandy got'19
more. Hardee was moving along as


the third period ended.
The fourth period was a running
clock. A fumble gave the ball to
Port Charlotte which was unable to
capitalize on it when Redden inter-
cepting a pass intended for Randy
Bianchi. Three quick plays and
Gandy followed blocker Haceem
Shweil into the end zone. With the
final Anc lmn kirk the score was


44-0.
More and more reserves began
hitting the field and Port Charlotte
picked up a couple of first downs
before an intentional grounding
penalty turned the ball over to
Hardee on downs. Donald White
picked up 15 yards and Hardee let
the clock run out.
For the night. Palmer went five-


of-seven in passes for 69 yards;
Palmer also had nine carries fo'r
109 yards and two touchdowns.
Gandy had 10 carries for 67 yards
and two touchdowns. Patterson hadt
10 carries for 93 yards and one TD
Grimsley, White and Youyou

ing day of hunting season, specifically archery.
Archery season provides a great opportunity to take a trophy whitetail
and is arguably one of the best times to do so, along with hunting the rut.
If you're stealthy enough an;, nave done your homework, you've got a good
chance of having a nice one walk out in front of you.
Florida's divided into three hunting zones, and you'll need to know
which zone you'll be hunting in because season dates vary.
Hunting season comes in first in the South Hunting Zone, where
archery season begins this Saturday and ends Oct. 8. Next up is f t' 'Central
Zone, which runs Sept. 23- Oct. 22. In the Northwest Hunting Zone,
archery season begins Oct. 14 and ends Nov. 12.
To hunt during archery season, you'll need a Florida hunting license
and an archery permit.
If you're a Florida resident, a hunting license costs $12.50. Nonresi-
dents may pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. The
archery permit costs $5 for in-state and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to hunt one of Florida's many wildlife management
areas (WMAs) must purchase a management area permit for $26.50.
All of these are available at county tax collectors' offices, retail outlets
that sell hunting and fishing supplies, or by calling toll-free 1-888-Hunt-
Florida or clicking MyFWC.com/license.
The most common game to take during archery season are deer and
wild hog. During this period, deer of either sex are legal game, regardless
of antler size (except for spotted fawns). The daily bag limit on deer is two.
Bag limits on WMAs can differ, so consult the area brochure.
Wild hogs are considered livestock on private lands and with
landowner permission can be hunted year-round with no bag or size lim-
its. On most WMAs, there's no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to
take during any hunting season except spring turkey. On a few WMAs lim-
its do apply, so check the area brochure.
In addition to hunting big game, it's also legal to shoot gobblers or
bearded turkeys during archery season. Only one can be taken per day and
there's a two-bird fall-season limit. It's against the law to hunt turkeys in
Holmes County during this period, and you can't shoot turkeys while
they're on the roost, over bait, when you're within 100 yards of a game-
feeding station or with the aid of recorded turkey calls.
If you're quite the marksman, gray squirrel, quail and rabbit are three
other species legal to take during archery season, and there's a daily bag
limit of 12 for each.
Only bows may be used during archery season no crossbows
allowed, except for hunters with a disabled crossbow permit. Bows must
have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are per-
mitted. For hunting deer, hog and turkey, broadheads must have at least two
sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after
sunset. Except for turkeys, you're permitted to take resident game over corn
or soybeans, as long as the game-feeding station's been established for at
least six months and maintained year-round. It's against the law to use such
bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do during archery season include possessing
firearms, using explosive or drug-injecting arrows, using bows equipped
with electronic computational or laser sights and possessing a bow on an
airboat in Miami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt deer, .hogs or turkeys, but you can use bird-
dogs if quail hunting. Otherwise, the only time you can have a dog in the
woods while hunting is on a leash, and you're using it to trail wounded
game.
Here's hoping all your preparation and persistence pays off, and wish-
ing you luck on taking that monster buck. As always, have fun, hunt safely
and ethically, and we'll see you in the woods!
Tony Young is a media relations coordinator for the FWC's Division of
Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him with questions about
hunting at Tony.Young@FWC.com.

Don't Be 'Fasionably' Late!'
HARDEE LIVING DEADLINE IS THURSDAY AT 5 PM.


DUST YOUR HEART
I was recently cleaning up my office and, boy, did I find some dust! If
you have allergies, call me instead of visiting, because I have piles of dust.
Now at home, I take it for granted because I have 'a good wife who
cleans and does the thankless jobs constafitly. I have never had to worry
about getting lost in a pile of dust at home. But in my office, where it is my
job, there were loads of dust that I had neglected to clean up. It was in spots
that I never look, like the back of my chair. My books were clean. My desk
was clean. But in those nooks and crannies, life had become a mess!
That's how life is. The areas in which we spend little effort collect dust.
Those nooks and crannies in which we spend little time get old and dirty.
Those nooks might be projects around a house that is falling apart. Those
crannies could be small areas like dental hygiene and neglecting to visit a
dentist, or they might be large areas like your marriage and spiritual condi-
tion with God.
Any area of life that is neglected is going to fall apart or fall out, in
regard to neglecting your teeth!
Life needs constant attention. A marriage is not built out of neglect, but
by careful love and affection. A family is not built out of watching televi-
sion, but by spending time with your children and making the most of each
moment they are young.
Life with God is not made by sitting in a pew or by saying "God bless
you" when someone sneezes. It is built by carefully giving attention to the
Word He has provided and by gathering with God's people and worshiping
with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
I've never understood why preachers preach and people believe that
God made life as a Christian simple. It is not simple. It is no easier than life
for Christ was on this Earth. And if God Himself suffered in blood, sweat
and tears on this Earth, then why would we think that God expects any less
out of us?
So let me encourage you to dust off your Bible, crack it open, sit down
and enjoy the words of the Creator. Dust off your hands and do some good
deeds for others in need. Dust off your heart and let the Lord take residence
inside.
As the Holy Spirit put it, through Paul, "When the kindness and love of
God our Savior toward man appeared ... according to His mercy He saved
us through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit"
(Titus 3:4-5).
Let the Lord wash your hearts and renew you, dust you off through bap-
tism, and make you clean of sins (Acts 22:16). Then keep your heart clean
as your God lives in it. Don't let the dust of neglect build up in your life and
heart. I'm Telling the Truth!

Sports Sense
& Nonsense
By Joan Seaman
__________' ____


Hardee Wildcat football continues to dominate the news. with its 45z
game regular season win streak. Of course, if you ask head coach Derrea
Bryan, he will tell you it's a three-game streak as this is mostly a new crop
of Wildcats and new type offense. The 'Cats will have their hands full at
this week's home game against the St. Petersburg Catholic Barons, which
feature one of the top running backs and quarterbacks in Hillsborough
County.
Haridee has a niew-lighted sign at the'north (visitors) enid of the fiela
which highlights the winning tradition of the Wildcats"'yer many years:. J

Congratulations are in order for former Wildcat football and basebai
player Greg Archambault. Starting with Little League, the now-Foit MyerS
resident, has become so interested in baseball, he went into officiating and
has done so in Hardee and later Lee County Little League, school and cof
lege games. His abilities led to selection as a regional umpire and the
opportunity to be one of 10 nationally to be chosen to umpire in the Littli
League World Series held in Maine this summer. He did so well,'he was
selected as the plate umpire for the championship game between Hawa'
and Venezuela.

Former Wildcat lineman Justin English is now playing college ball, fr
the Milsaps Majors of Jackson, Miss. (See picture and cutline elsewhere in
this issue).

The junior varsity Wildcats regrouped and won handily 20-8 in last
week's game at Avon Park. The junior Red Devils scored just before the
game ended. Come see the junior Wildcats at home tonight (Thursday
against DeSoto.

Hardee cross country girls, led by seniors Maricela Galvan and Mandy
Cornelius and soph Hope Poucher won the Early Bird Invitational run, t
Highlands Hammock last week. Hardee boys were shorthanded, with a cou-
ple of key varsity runners not eligible yet due to paperwork. Alumni, dorn'
forget to sign up now for the Sept. 26 Alumni Run at the high school at 8
p.m. Call Coach Don Trew at 773-3181 or e-mail him it
dtrew@hardee.Kl2.fl.us. :

Lady Wildcat swimming came from behind to place first and third iMi
the final event and win 148-146 over Avon Park in its pool last weel
-Hardee boys were defeated by Avon Park. Both teams did well against
strong competition in the nine-team Blackman Relays on Saturday.

Boys golf is doing well, with senior Justin Painter and junior Kalei
Saunders coming in at or just over par in most matches. The team has only
succumbed to Lakeland High (twice) in its early outings and is carrying
5-2 record. Girls golf is another matter, as they have been rained out in mosl
of their matches to date. '

The volleyball girls have run into a hard row to hoe. They have lost
some key district matches recently. But, expect them to regroup and cornt
back strong later in the season with teamwork that will win close matches
for them.

Hardee Junior High fall sports are getting under way. The softball girlt
start on Monday at home (the Recreation Complex field north of the higi
school off Altman Road) on Monday. All games are at 4:30. Coaches Shafi
Knight and Beth Sasser have a strong group of veterans of youth baseba$
play. The girls are also home on Sept. 21 against Avon Park before hittirig
the road.
The junior high football squad gets into action on Tuesday, when the
young 'Cats travel to DeSoto to face the middle school team there. Hard&
"-
is not home until Oct. 3 when Hill-Gustat visits but has three of its fin4
four games at home, including the finale, a return match-up against DeSot4
on Oct. 24.

Duffers, gather your clubs and turn out for the Magnolia Manor tp
a golf tournament to benefit the restoration of the Magnolia Manor rcr -
ational park for kids and teens. From the baseball field to playground equip
ment to restrooms, major renovations are needed and you can help.
Cost is $40 for the tourney on Sept. 23, beginning at 8 a.m. at Torrey
Oaks Golf Course. The format is a four-person scramble and will include
prizes and drawings as well as lunch and desserts. For more information,
call the golf course at 767-0302 or 863-832-2800 or e-mail at www.magt
noliamanorpark.com.
Information from community and school athletic events is always welcome.

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger


TWENTY ONE YEARS OF FESTIVALS...
SIt's hard to believe that Highlands Hammock State Park's Civilian
Conservation Corps festival hits year number 21 this November. That's 21'
years of celebrating our heritage wi'' "raft shows, music, outdoor fun and
CCC Alumni reunions. A lot has changed in 21 years. Come along with me
for a brief history of the Civilian Conservation Corps and this special event.
The Civilian Conservation Corps Festival got its start, of course, with
the CCCs. This national program offered employment to young men during
the Great Depression. It was also one of the largest, most successful envi-
ronmental restoration projects ever undertaken in this country. Millions of
young men, their families and communities benefited from this almost
decade-long program. The era began shortly after the "Black Friday" stock
market crash and ended with the start of WWII.
Between 1934 and 1942 the corps was active at Highlands Hammock.
At that time, its main work was on two adjacent sections of land that bor-
dered Highlands Hammock Park. They planted thousands of trees and
plants, landscaped, built water catchment devices, roadways, bridges and
4iiite a few buildings. If you have eyer eaten at the Hammock Inn, or
browsed through the state CCC Museum, then you have seen its handiwork.
Both buildings were constructed by the CCCs during tenure here.
Now you may have know that these were CCC buildings, but you
might not have known that the lumber for them was actually harvested, cut
and milled at a sawmill that the CCC operated. You might also be surprised
to know that the giant turtle shell in the restaurant was actually only one of
several ancient bones found during the excavation for water pipe lines by
the CCC boys.
Grand plans were laid out for these enrollees and, in the mid 1930s, the
proposed Florida Botanical Garden and Arboretum was estimated to cost
perhaps $10 million at completion. Highlands Hammock became one of the
first state parks in 1935. It wasn't long after these two projects merged that
the grand effort had to be abandoned due to the war. After the war was over,
the vast plantings and reflecting pools had been lost to the elements, and
this immense project was never revived. As well, most of the enrollees of
CCC camps nationwide had enlisted in the war effort and then began new
lives after it was over.
SBack in 1985, a desire for a reunion amongst these former CCC boys
led to the first CCC Alumni gathering here at the park. Allen Altvater, the
'&iginal park superintendent and former CCC camp leader, enjoyed getting
fthe group together to reconnect, visit and reminisce about their days in the
corps. Many enlightening stories about our park's history were shared in


this informal setting and sparked the idea of an annual reunion: As time
went by, the reunion activities were expanded on, mainly to give the men
and their families some additional activities to enjoy during their celebra-
tion.
Over time, it was determined that all this history was too good not to

share, and the general public was invited to help us honor these men and
their works here at the park.
Each festival year seems to grow a bit larger, as do the crowds.that par-
take in the activities. Back in 2000, our offering of craft vendors, live enter-
tainment and children's activities brought in about 1,8000 visitors. This
attendance number stayed pretty constant until 2004, when over 3,000 peo-
ple decided to join us for the day's activities. Last year's attendance also
was over 3,000 and we look forward to providing a fun festival again this
year on Nov. 4.
One component to these events has always remained, even as other
things have changed. The event has always been a.reunion day for our for-
mer CCC boys and their families. In 2003, the National CCC Alumni orga-
nization held its annual reunion in Sebring, and the members came to the
festival for the day. Interviews and remembrances have been shared, as have
many artifacts, which now fill the state's CCC Museum here at the park. Our
local CCC Chapter and its volunteers have helped us to keep the memories
of the CCC alive by providing educational programs, volunteer assistance
and staffing for the museum.
So be sure to mark your calendars for this year's event, which will hap-
pen on Nov. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Also, don't forget to visit the CCC
Museum the next time you visit the park. Chances are that you will meet
someone there that is either related to, or may have even been, one of our
CCC boys here at the park.
November will also be the month that the "Hammock Creek" work by
the famous Highwayimen Painter Robert Butler will be given away. The
Music in the Park concert will be held two weeks after the festival, on Nov.
18. Raffle tickets are still available at the park's Ranger Station or at the
MidFlorida Credit Union at 6105 U.S. 27 north, where the painting is on dis-
play. Raffles are $10 each or six chances for $50, and all proceeds benefit
the park via the Friends of Highlands Hammock. Good Luck!

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.

Terrace, FL 33637-0926. Phone (813) 632-7600, extension 138 or 158 for an appointment.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,Florida
Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below. -
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department'sproposed per-
mitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57,.Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General. Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth. Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlarge-
ment of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period
tbr filing a petition for, anadministrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3),Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or
within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first.; Under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice
of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regard-
less of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above atthe ti e of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for enlarge-
ment of time wi hin fourteen days of receipt of. notice shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's rightto request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57 FIcrida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another pa) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information: ,, :
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone 'number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the Department permit
identification number and.the county in which the subject matter or acdvity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department
action; .- .- .
(c)' A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests is affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrants reversal or modification
,ofthe Department action;
S(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g). A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that
the petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party
to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue
mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any
person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). Theagreement must
contain all the information required ,by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The
agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above.
Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not
result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to
mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 1.20.57, Florida
Statutes, for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution
of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons
seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final
.decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall
be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify'the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action
and electing remedies under those two statutes. 9:14

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
(Held out from last week.)
Well Football Fans, it is here! Opening weekend of professional foot-
ball. It should be a good one. Yes, there are plenty of good openers as the
three Florida teams shoot for the Super Bowl. Tampa opens at home against
Baltimore. The Bucs' defense was the NFL's best last year. No reason to
expect any less in 2006. The offense looks to be improved with a more
mature Chris Simms.
Jacksonville hopes Byron Leftwich can shrug off the pre-season slump
the offense was in and score some points. The NFL's sixth best defense
from a year ago can't do it alone. Meanwhile, The Dolphins are predicted
by some to face Carolina in the Super Bowl.
After the first week of college football, a few things are clear already.
Notre Dame is nowhere near a Top 10 team after beating a mediocre ACC
team by only 14-10. California probably won't face West Virginia for the

National Championship either.Good call, Mr. Corso, on that prediction. The
Golden Bears are doubtful to unseat USC in the Pac 10. The ACC proved
the experts are on target with their predictions the conference is now the
"BEST" conference in America. 1-AA Richmond shut out Duke, Pitt humil-
iated Virginia, Rutgers ran over North Carolina while Maryland beat 1-AA
Wm & Mary by 10 and Boston College barely upset Central Michigan.
Yeah, the ACC will surpass the SEC. Maybe in LaCrosse
Now, let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare
1. UCF at Florida UCF played itself into the CUSA Championship
Game last year. This team always plays the big boys'tough but UF will use
them as a tuneup for the Vols. Florida 38 UCF 13.
2. Eastern Washington at West Virginia The first ever meeting
between these teams became necessary when Buffalo backed out of the
scheduled contest at WVU. The offense will fine tune itself in preparation
for Maryland next Thursday. Look for many players to see the field in this
one. Steve Slaton.leads the nation in rushing after week one. WVU 52
SEWU 17.
3. Troy at FSU The Trojans will need more than a trick horse to win
in Tally. FSU 44 Troy 14.
4. Hofstra at Marshall The Herd dominates this one. The offense
lights it up too.Bernie Morris looks much improved at QB in 06. Marshall
41 Hofstra 10.
5. Vanderbilt at Alabama Please Vandy, seek membership in CUSA
Where you can compete. Michigan and now Alabama? Alabama 31 Vandy
13.
6. Ohio State at Texas Don't be too shocked if the Longhorns keep
it close. Last year's 25-22 Buckeye win will probably resemble this game.
It is the top game of the week, must watch category. Ohio State 27 Texas
23.
7. Penn State at Notre Dame Come on, JoPa, take out the Irish
before we have to endure a whole season of commentators pushing Notre
Dame for the National Championship. Penn State 26 Notre Dame 24.
8. Florida International at USF Bulls win the games they are sup-


posed to win. The big game is next week against UCF in the Battle of I-4.
USF 40 FIU 17.
9. Illinois at Rutgers The Illini get Zooked at the Birthplace of
College Football. Rutgers beat Princeton 6-4 in 1869 in the first college
football game ever played. This one won't be close as the tandem of Brian
Leonard and Ray Rice team up for a pounding of the Zooksters. Rutgers 49
Illinois 21.
10. FAMU at Miami Always love the FAMU Band. The team will
struggle to hold its own against the Canes. Look for the Miami defense to.
dominate. Miami 38 FAMU 7.
11. Georgia at South Carolina Dawgs send the Old Ball Coach d
message. It will take a little longer to unseat the UGA boys from the SEC
Top Spot. Georgia 31 USC 17.
12. Air Force at Tennessee Mi'*arily, Nothing can stop the U.S. Air-
Force. In college football, the Vols wil shoot them down. UT is back with
a mission. Tennessee 38 AF 13.
13. Louisville at Temple The Cardinals lost Heisman hopeful;
Michael Bush with a broken leg. Very sad for U of L and the player. Brian
Brohm will lead this win over the Owls. Louisville 66 Temple 17.
14. Auburn at Miss. State Irons looked good running the ball for
the Tigers. Let's see if MSU can stop him. Auburn should come down to the:
wire with LSU ip the SEC West. Auburn 43 MSU 14.
15. Arizona at LSU Tigers roar at home against the Pac 10. LSU 42'
Arizona 16.
16. Baltimore at Tampa Bucs open with a statement. Tampa 34
Baltimore 17. ,
17. Pittsburgh at Miami The Fish take advantage of Big Bens oper-:
ation and sack Charlie a "Batch" of times. Can you see the Fins in the Super
Bowl? Miami 27 Pittsburgh 20.
18. Dallas at Jacksonville Jags get some offense and the defense
steps up. Jax 30 Dallas 21.
19. Atlanta at Carolina Carolina primed for the Super Bowl run.
Carolina 33 Atlanta 20.
20. N.Y Jets at Tennessee Pennington is back. Jets 24 Tenn. 21.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The HeraldAdvocate
SIf Avon Park hadn't scored in the
final minute, it would have been a
'shut-out.
The Hardee junior varsity
'Wildcats took the game to their
opponents on their own field and
Won convincingly 20-8 in last
Thursday's game.
' Tonight (Thursday) the young
ACats host the DeSoto junior
,Bulldogs in a 7 p.m. game at
!Wildcat Stadium. Next Thursday's
game is also at home, against visit-
ling Lake Placid.
j; "Apparently we tweaked the
recipe just right. The kids played
hard and the coaches coached them
well. After they got a good run on
the first play from scrimmage, we
,buckled down and our defense flew
;;around the ball," commented head
coach Rod Smith on Friday morn-
kng.
" "We did much better (after losing
he season opener) and there were
gnot nearly so many missed tackles.
jiThey had a big, strong fullback and
after he broke that long run, they

off," Smith concluded.
The game statistics tell the story.
*Hardee had 34 carries for 271 yards
and three touchdowns, with punter
Jesse Aguirre nailing two of the
three conversion kicks The young
'Cats had 12 first downs en route to
overcoming an interception and
three fumbles. They lost 30 yards
on four penalties.
In contrast, Avon Park had 23
carries (some forward, some back-
ward) for a net total of 140 yards
and one TD. Five of 11 passes were
completed for a plus six yards. The
Red Devils lost 10 yards on two
penalties and suffered three fum-
bles. They had eight first downs.
Avon Park had first possession
at its 29-yard line. The bruising
fullback broke over left tackle for a
50-yard gain on his first carry.
Then, he gained two and the tail-
back went over left guard for two
yards, then a grudging one more.
Tyrell Smith and Antjuan Jones
stopped a fourth-down attempt
around right end and Hardee took
over on downs.
Starting at their own 19, the
Wildcats went on an eight-play
drive. Kelsheem White and Marvin
Cook combined for first downs,
until quarterback Esayi Youyoute
rolled out to pass, but kept the ball
and raced down the right sideline
for a 49-yard TD run. The kick


failed, but Hardee was up 6-0 with
nearly four minutes left in the first
period.
On its next series, the Red Devils
had two good plays before the
quarterback was sacked by defen-
sive end Jonathan Kelly, who
forced a fumble and recovered it.
As the game moved into the sec-
ond quarter, Hardee was moving
along well when an interception
turned the ball over to Avon Park at
its 12. Nick Battles and Brett Tyson
'joined forces to stop a runner for a
loss. On the next play, an Avon
Park fumble was recovered by safe-
ty Josh Rogers at the Red Devil 36.
It wasn't long before a Hardee
fumble gave it back to Avon Park,
which was unable to capitalize on
the turnover and shortly made its
own fumble, recovered by Juan
Salazar at the Hardee 46.
This time around Hardee took
advantage of the possession, with
White getting a first down on a 16-
yard run. Youyoute stumbled,
caught his balance and kept run-
ning to the Avon Park 1-yard line.
After an errant pass, White ran the
ball in for the score. With Aguirre's
kick, it was a 13-0 game with two
minutes left in the half. Hardee
took over on downs on the Red
Devil hurry-up drive and ran out
the clock.
Hardee got possession on a
touchback to start the second half.
Youyoute, Rogers and Jones moved
downfield. Just before getting to
the end zone, a White fumble
turned the ball back to an Avon
Park defender which got it out to
the 12.
Quite quickly, Avon Park punted
the ball and Hardee took over on
the Red Devil 48. White and
Youyoute alternated carrying the'.
ball. Jones got it to the 1-yard line
and Youyoute slipped' in from there
for the tally. Aguirre's boot made it
20-0.
For the remainder of the third
and most of the fourth quarter, the
teams traded possessions. A fumble
gave the ball to Avon Park for one
last.try as the clock wound down..
The Red Devil quarterback got
loose for a couple of good runs, the
final 14 getting him into the end
zone. A pass added .a .two-point ,
conversion and made the final tally
20-8 with just 39 spconrds left irnthe
game. ''

Before the first crisp leaves crackle along the pavement, we get,,
ready for a new school year. Though some youngsters anticipate
this rite with more enthusiasm than others, they will usually agree
upon one fact They don't like homework!
Why have homework anyway? Is it really necessary? Well,
perhaps it is necessary, for though the classroom is the place of
learning, homework is an exercise in application...a time to use that
knowledge...a time to reinforce what we've learned.
Our spiritual life somewhat parallels this concept We attend
God's house and study His Word. The rest of the week is
"homework", as we apply this wisdom in our daily lives, away from
the sanctuary and amidst temptation.
Attend your chosen place of worship this week; and after you
have learned of God's will... always do your homework.

GAME 0O
LSU at


SEC is see


Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday aftemoon for the premier
matchup of the weekend.
More than the SEC Western Division championship could be
hanging in the balance when sixth-ranked LSU visits third-ranked
Auburn. The winner will not only be another game closer to a trip
to Atlanta for the conference championship game, but also will
establish itself as the top team in the country's toughest league and
a national championship contender.
If you like defense, then this is the game for you. LSU, which
ranks second nationally in pass defense and third in total defense,
hasn't given up an offensive touchdown in its past 14 quarters.
New Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp has his unit
ranked ninth in pass defense and 12th in total defense after
impressive showings at Washington State and Mississippi State.
The defenses may be good, but you can't overlook the two
offensive superstars in this game. Auburn running back Kenny
Irons, the conference's leading rusher, ran for a career-high 218
yards in last year's 20-17 loss to LSU. and LSU quarterback
JaMarcus Russell has a variety of weapons at his disposal.:
I Records: LSU 2-0 (0-0 SEC West); Auburn 2-0 (1-0 SEC
West). 9 Coaches: LSU's Les Miles (41-23); Auburn's Tommy
Tuberville (87-47). N Series: LSU leads 21-18-1. Kickoff: 2:30
p.m. CT Saturday. TV: CBS.
Key for LSU: Control the line of scrimmage. Auburn's four
starting defensive linemen have combined for 22.5 tackles this
season, including 8.5 sacks.
Key for Auburn: Redemption for kicker John Vaughn, who
converted just one of his six field-goal attempts last year at LSU.


The Rest of the Matchups
Arkansas at Vanderbilt
a Records: Arkansas I-1 (0-0 SEC West); Vanderbilt 0-2 (0-1
SEC East). I Coaches: Arkansas' Houston Nutt (94-63);
Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson (71-73). a Series: Arkansas leads
4-2. u Kickoff: 11:30 a.m. CT Saturday. 0 TV: Lincoln Financial
Sports.
Key for Arkansas: No repeat of last year. The Razorbacks
were flagged nifie times and lost 88 yards in last year's 28-24 loss
to the Commodores.
Key for Vanderbilt: Don't let Darren McFadden be the
difference. The Arkansas running back appears back to 100
percent with a 184-yard perfonnance in last week's 20-0 victory -
over Utah State.
SUAB at Georgia,
a Records: UAB'I-1 (1-0 Conference USA East); Georgia 2-0
(1-0 SEC East). I Coaches: UAB's Watson Browi (92-143-1);

GAME OF THE WEEK
Clemson at Florida State
'-, ,P.


lustrauon ny meruc anmt e t W


Son must shine again


e has beat dear old dad d Florida State two out of the last
three years, and Tommy Bowden will have to do it once
again on Saturday night for Clemson to preserve its hopes
of an ACC Atlantic Division championship.
Neither squad is feeling particularly good about itself heading
into the eighth Bowden Bowl. The Seminoles have yet to look like
their once-dominant selves with back-to-back lackluster victories
over Miami and Troy State, but it beats the situation that thie
Tigers are facing.
Following a devastating 34-33 double overtime loss at Boston
College, Clemson faces the most crucial early season game of tihe
Tommy Bowden era. A loss would put the Tigers two games back
in the division standings and relegate them to playing the role of
spoilers for the rest of the season.
0 Records: Clemson 1-1 (0-1 ACC Atlantic); Florida State 2-0
(1-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Clemson's Tommy Bowden
(71-38); Florida State's Bobby Bowden (361-107-4). 0 Series:
Florida State leads 15-4. Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday. N TV:
ESPN.
Key for Clemson: Put pressure on Drew Weatherford.
Weatherford was 12-of-27 for 117 yards with two interceptions
and was sacked six times last year against Clemson.
Key for Florida State: Find a ground game. Florida State has
picked up 46 yards on 53 carries in the first two games of the
season and ranks I18th nationally in rushing offense.

The Rest of the Matchups
Maryland at West Virginia
* Records:. Maryland 2-0 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); West Virginia 2-0
(0-0 Big East). a Coaches: Maryland's Ralph Friedgen (43-20);
West Virginia's Rich Rodriguez (86-58-2). Series: West
Virginia leads 21-20-2. M Kickoff: 7:45 p.m. ET Thursday. a TV:
ESPN.
Key for Maryland: Stop Steve Slaton. The West Virginia
running back, who had 200-yard games against Georgia in the
Sugar Bowl and Marshall in the season opener, ran for 105 yards
and two scores on eight carries in last week's 52-3 victory over
Eastern Washington.
Wake Forest at Connecticut
a Records: Wake Forest 2-0 (1-0 ACC Atlantic); Connecticut 1-0
(0-0 Big East). a Coaches: Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (61-65-1);
Connecticut's Randy Edsall (34-43). Series: Connecticut leads
1-0. i Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. M TV: ESPN360.
Key for Wake Forest: Stop the run. UConn freshman Donald
Brown had 118 yards and two touchdowns, and the Huskies had
437 yards in the season-opening 52-7 victory over Rhode Island.
Duke at Virginia Tech
a Records: Duke 0-2 (0-1 ACC Coastal); Virginia Tech 2-0(1-0
ACC Coastal). m Coaches: Duke's Ted Roof (5-24); Virginia
Tech's Frank Beamer (190-102-4). N Series: Duke leads 7-6.
* Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV: Raycom/Lincoln Financial
Sports.
Key for Duke: After collecting 312 yards of total offense inl
last week's 14-13 loss to Wake Forest, freshman quarterback
Thaddeus Lewis has to prove that he's not a one-hit wonder.


Key for Virginia Tech: Yards after the catch. Sean Glennon
completed 10 of 17 passes forjust 66 yards in last week's 35-10
victory at North Carolina.
BYU at Boston College
a Records: BYU 1-I (0-0 Mountain West); Boston College 2-0
(1-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: BYU's Bronco Mendenhall
(7-7); Boston College's Tom O'Brien (68-42). 0 Series: Tied 1-1.
* Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. ITV: ESPN2.
Key for Boston College: The Eagles' secondary must step up
after letting Clemson's Will Proctor throw for 343 yards on 25-of-
40 passing.
Troy at Georgia Tech
RecordsTlroy 1-1 (0-0 Sun Belt); GeorgiaTech 1-1 (0-0 ACC
Coastal). N Coaches: Troy's Larry Blakeney (120-61-1); Georgia
Tech's Chan Galley (53-34). a Series: First meeting. Kickoff:
1:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: None.
Key for Georgia Tech: Be leery of the trick play. Troy wide
receiver Gary Banks took a toss from Omar Haugabook and threw
a 42-yard pass to Toris Rutledge in the near-upset of Florida State.
Western Michigan at Virginia
* Records: Western Michigan 2-0 (1-0 MAC West); Virginia 1-1
(0-0 ACC Coastal). 8 Coaches: Western Michigan's Bill Cubit
(43-22-1); Virginia's Al Groh (64-67). 0 Series: Virginia leads
2-0. I Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. M TV: ESPN360.
Key for Virginia: Continued improvement from the special
teams, which were awful in the season-opening 38-13 loss at
Pittsburgh.
Miami at Louisville
* Records: Miami 1-1 (0-1 ACC Coastal); Louisville 2-0 (0-0 Big
East). N Coaches: Miami's Larry Coker (54-10); Louisville's
Bobby Petrino (31-8). r Series: Miami leads 9-0-1. Kickoff:
3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. aTV: ABC.
Key for Miami: Avoid a shootout. Unlike the 2004 game, in
which they pulled out a 41-38 victory at the Orange Bowl, the
Hurricanes may not have the offensive firepower to hang with
Louisville.
N.C. State at Southern Miss
a Records: N.C. State 1-1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); Southern Miss 1-1
(0-0 Conference USA East). N Coaches: N.C. State's Chuck
Amato (47-29); Southern Miss' Jeff Bower (104-73- ). I Series:
Tied 4-4. 0 Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. 0 TV: None.
Keys for N.C. State: Exploit Southern Miss' rushing defense.
Andre Brown ran for 248 yards and two scores in last year's 21-17
victory over the Golden Eagles.
Furman at North Carolina
a Records: Furman 2-0 (0-0 I-AA Southern); North Carolina 0-2
(0-1 ACC Coastal). I Coaches: Funnan's Bobby Lamb (26-12);
North Carolina's John Bunting (62-52-2). 0 Series: North
Carolina leads 4-1. a Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. M TV:
ESPNU.
Key for North Carolina: Miscues can't put the defense in
impossible situations. An interception and a punt block in the first
half led to two short touchdown runs by Virginia Tech last week.


I sTON COL. Although he was
listed as doubtful
for last week's game against Clemson
because of an injured ankle, Matt Ryan ;
threw for212 yards and a touchdownon
22-of-38 passing In the 34-33 overtime
Victory. The Eagles may have dodged a
bullet with Ryan's Injury, but

ON five overtime gamesin
program history, the Tigers are currently -
riding a three-game losing streak In extra-,
session contests. Boston College, which
recorded a 16-13 overtime victory at Death .1
Valley In 2005, blocked an extra point In
the second overtime last week before
scoring the winning TD.
MMKU Freshman quarterback
Thaddeus Lewis made his first
start last week and threw for 305 yards
and one touchdown on 21-of-32 passing in
a 14-13 loss to Wake Forest. His yardage
was the most compiled by a Duke
quarterback In his first start since Dave
Brown threw for 444 yards in 1989. :: "'
R T.lSA CT. Linebacker Buster" '
Davis, who claimed ACC',
Defensive Line Player of the Week honors
for his 12-tackle performance against
Miami, helped the Seminoles pull out a
24-17 victory over Troy with an
interception at the Trojans' 29 late in the
game. Joe Surratt went on to score the
game-winning 4-yard touchdown run.
f LrpM For the first time in 40
made ti years, the Yellow Jackets
made two interception returns for
touchdowns in the same game. Djay
Jones intercepted a pass on Samford's first
series and went 28 yards for a touchdown, '
while Jamal Lewis notched another .
touchdown with a 97-yard Interception
return In the 38-6 victory.
Y VT.A m Despite being outgalned
321-274 by Middle
Tennessee, the Terrapins posted a 24-10
victory last Saturday. "Statistics are for
losers, and we lost the game," Middle
Tennesse-ne1,--A-U-Lcn -KMoisiL-


tennessee head coacn Kick Stockstll
said.


i MIT Derron Thomas, who is
listed fourth on the
Hurricanes' depth chart, rushed for 109
yards on 11 carries and was one of four
Miami backs to run for at least 60 yards In
last Saturday's 51-10 victory over Florida
A&M. Javarris James ran for 75 yards and
two touchdowns on eight carries, Tyrone
Moss scored once and collected 64 yards
on eight carries and Charlie Jones ran for
two scores and 62 yards on 11 attempts.
FPeARfULNA Following the Tar
Heels' 35-10 loss to
Virginia Tech, head coach John Bunting
said that he and his staff will re-evaluate
the team's quarterback situation. Joe
Dailey was 10-of-17 for 55 yards with two
interceptions against the Hokles, while
Cam Sexton was 9-of-21 for 124 yards with
one touchdown and two Interceptions.
I SKTAnT After holding
Appalachian State to 133
yards of total offense in a season-opening
23-10victory, the Wolfpack defense was
exploited by Akron for 381 yards last
week. Akron running back Dennis
Kennedy ran for 131 yards and three
touchdowns, Including a 1-yard plunge
that gave the Zips a 20-17 victory.
3TmNIA The Cavaliers secured a
13-12 victory over
Wyoming when the Cowboys missed an
extra point In overtime. "I was lucky
enough tobe part ofa team town the
Super Bow'on a kick (XXV, as an assistant
with the Giants) on the last play of the
game that went wide right," Virginia head
coach Al Groh said. "This one felt almost
as good." h s
IWL.TECH Redshirtsophomore r
Branden Ore rushed for
115 yards and three short touchdowns on
22 carries and collected 37 yards on two
receptions against North Carolina. "I think
our offensive line got better today,"
Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer
said. "Brandon Ore, I thought, was
sensational, and I think wejust got to tidy
up some things (offensively)."
MCE FPORiT Chip Vaughn
blocked a field goal
attempt as time expired to preserve the
Demon Deacons' one-point win over Duke.
"What a game." Vaughn said. "I was happy
and mad at the same time because It was
such a close game."

Fix it or close it, a tough choice
in any situation.
An 18-hole, four-person scram-
ble golf tournament will, hopefully,

Magnolia Manor Park.
Wendell Cotton, chairman of the

Aug. 31, urging the members to
individually participate and spon-
