Testimony Begins In Murder


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Blood found in the trunk of a car
driven by a Zolfo Springs man is
consistent with that of a Bowling
Green woman who has been miss-
ing for four years.
So began the second-degree mur-
der trial of Thomas Jessie Crews'
Jr., 41, in a Bartow courtroom on
Tuesday. He is accused of killing
his former girlfriend and mother of
his child, Sondra Denise Barring-
ton, 20.
In fact, the prosecution began to


Meus



Rally



Draws



Crowd
By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
A crowd of nearly 100 gathered
around the steps of the Hardee
County Courthouse Saturday in
support of a truck driver sentenced
to 15 years in prison after a crash
which killed two people.
The rally was coordinated by
Patricia Austin of Avon Park who is
also the founder of Operation Free
Jean-Claude Meus. The group was
founded on Aug. 28 in Avon Park,
after the Aug. 7 ruling of Tenth
Circuit Court Judge Robert L.
Doyel, who denied Meus a new
trial.
John.H, Trevena of Largo, the
defense attorney of Meus, alleged
juror misconduct, ineffective assis-
tance of counsel, prosecutorial mis-
conduct and withheld evidence in
the 2003 trial. All four claims were
denied by Doyel.
This ruling upset family, friends
and supporters of the trucker who
made their voices heard on
Saturday.
"I'm here because I want to see
justice through and to see this inno-
cent man released. I am a truck dri-
ver myself and came to show my
support, because I feel he has done
nothing wrong," said Lyndel Ayers
of Bowling Green.
"I am a church minister in Avon
Park, and it is justice that brings me
here today. We do not want to see
an innocent man behind bars," said
Rev. Ismael Monzon.
Supporters at the rally were able
Sto sign a petition requesting a new
trial for Meus or an overturning of
Doyel's ruling. They held signs
with a picture of the 42 year-old-

hint, through opening remarks and
witness testimony, that custody of
that child, Thomas Jessie Crews,
known as T.J., now 6, could have
been a motive in the killing.
And the defense tried to counter,
in its opening remarks and through
cross-examination attempts, that
Barrington was willing to sign over
the custody of T.J. in exchange for
a new car.
The trial, which is expected to
fill the remainder of this week and
continue on into next week, pits
Assistant State Attorney Cass


Castillo against Assistant Public
Defender Mel McKinley.
It is being played out inside the
Polk County Courthouse in Bartow
because the state could not say pre-
cisely where the alleged murder
occurred: in.DeSoto County, where
Barrington's car was abandoned on
Oct. 10, 2002; in Hardee County,
where both Crews and Barrington
lived, in separate locations; or in
Polk County, where the car Crews
was driving that day was later
found in a repair shop and
impounded.

County Raises Tax Miltage To 9


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
County employees received rais-
es and the tax mileage went up as
the tentative 2966-07 budget was
approved, /
At the y9riing meeting of the
Hardee C'unty Commission and
evening initial public hearing last'
Thursday, there were several key
changes to the county's budget for
the next fiscal year.
In response to public outcry,
commissioners voted to reinstate
the $25,000 which .they had cut
from the human services portion of
the budget for funding for Rest-
haven (see related article). The
commission did not, however, raise
funding for the Peace River Center.


The four commissioners present
also approved a resolution adopting
the proposed $73, 227,858 budget
and another approving the ad val-
orem tax increase to 9.0 mills. Tax
revenue of about $3 million is only
a small part of the budget, which
includes grants, licenses and fees,
fines and forfeiture and transfers of
dollars already earmarked for pro-
jects which won't be completed in
the current fiscal year which ends
Sept, 30. Commission Chairman
Nick Timmerman was out of town
and absent from both meetings on
Thursday.
In the morning session there was
lengthy discussion of both the fire-
fighters and public works employ-
ees union contracts which included


hefty raises. Both will be balanced
out in the proposed budget by
reduction in other expenses, such as
.equipment or some other capital
improvement project. They did not
increase the tentative budget. The
Resthaven increase comes out of
the approximately $3 million in


contingency monies, those set aside
unexpected emergencies which
arise during the year.

Judge J. Dale Durrance.

DeSoto Memorial Hospital in
Arcadia, near the point of regaining
(custody of her children after tem-

Sthe age of 20, she was in a part-
time, not even a full-time, job at the

He went on to tell jurors that
Sondra Barrington and Tommy
Crews had split up, and that Crews
married another woman within two
to three weeks of that split.
"Sondra found out about this, she
knew it, and she was livid,"
McKinley said.
"Thomas Crews was, indeed, the
best prospect Sondra had in Hardee
County," he 'continued. "Her
prospects for a decent job were

very limited, she worked at

asserted. "To get away from her
mother, to get away from Hardee
County and all the influences she
had. To get out and to start all over
again." '
MeKinley focused on the fact
that Bairington's body has never
been found.
He told the jury, "When you
carefully.consider all the evidence
presented by the state, that evi-
dence will not rise to the standard
above a reasonable doubt that
Sondra Barrington is even dead, or
that Thomas Crews killed her."
Prosecutor Castillo repeatedly hit
Supon the fact that Thomas Crews
denied seeing Sondra Barrington
that'day when interviewed by
detectives, though witnesses dri-
ving along U.S. 17 saw a vehicle
matching his parked near Sondra's
car, and a man and a woman walk-
ing together toward Crews' car.
Crews lied, Castillo said. Crews
only admitted being with Sondra
alongside U.S. 17 that evening after
she clocked out of work at 6:03
p.m. after he was presented with
the evidence against him.
McKinley explained that Crews
lied because he was under a court
injunction to stay..away-=.from ::;.
Barrington, and faced jail time if he
disobeyed it. He left her there, her
car stuck in the sand, but well and
alive, he said.
Castillo pointed to DNA evi-
Sdence found in the trunk of the car
Crews was driving. He said the
Florida ,Department of Law En-
forcement lab processed a spot of
blood found on a gym bag in the
trunk and compared it to swabs
taken from Sondra Barrington's
parents.
"The blood on a gym bag in the
trunk of this man's car would have
come from a child of Shirley and.
Floyd Barrington," Castillo told
jurors. "The frequency of occur-'
rence of this (match) is one in 300:
million people!"
The prosecutor closed his open-
ing remarks by telling jurors about
Crews' alleged comments to a fel-
low inmate at the Hardee County
Jail. "He did admit to him that he
killed her, and where he disposed
Sof the body," Castillo said.
Searches of the area described by
that inmate failed to produce any
remains. But, he told jurors, the
area involved phosphate pits,
which are filled with alligators.
Both Castillo and McKinley took
30 minutes in presenting their out-
lines of their cases to the jury.
The first of many witnesses then
began to testify, and testimony con-

,on, 48 hours off staffing. For
instance, Polk County has Emer-
gercy Medical Technicans (EMTs)
only, Highlands has a combination
of volunteer fire departments and
county ambulance crews, DeSoto is
in the midst of. merging. with
Arcadia. Finally, the nearest same-
sized county, Okeechobee, was
used as a base comparison, with
end funding at 91 percent of that
county and considered competitive.
In Hardee County, all staff with
the Fire-Rescue Department is
dually certified, both firefighters
and EMTS or paramedics, which
requires a lot of education. Fire
school is four months of daily,
classes and EMTs. add another five
months of full-time classes. To be a
paramedic requires an additional
year of studies, three or four days a
week on days off, the equivalent of
a associate's or two-year degree. To
be a lieutenant, there's another 13
hours of college credit plus a state
exam, in essence another year of
college, focusing on building con-
struction, fire protection, organiza-
tion and other supervisory respon-
sibilities.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
questioned the need for lieutenants.
"I don't understand why we need
more bosses and less workers."
Deputy Fire Chief Dan Harsh-
burger explained state requirements
for accountability. Not only do lieu-
tenants go to calls and assume com-
mand, but also complete computer
documentation of staffing and
how the fire was handled. They
also organize the weekly training
and the daily routines of the fire-
house staff.
After more discussion, the com-
mission approved the contract for
ratification by the union. It changes .
the wage structure to 14 steps and
provides raises of an average 10.38
percent, a high of 18.52 percent for
paramedics and less for the EMT
and lieutenants.

PUBLIC WORKS
EMPLOYEES
Also considered was the collec-
tive bargaining agreement for


lane roads, whether rural back
roads or main highways, must stoI
in both directions if there is not at"
least a five-foot unpaved space or.
barrier between traffic to prevent
crossing over into the school bus or
its students.
"In a 180-days school year, it i9-"
estimated that there are almost two
million illegal' "pass-bys" ol
Florida school buges, each repre-
senting the possibility of tragic
injuries or fatalities to students
Florida Motor Vehicle Laws re-
quire motorists to stop uponr
approaching any school bus whiciW
displays its flashing red lights and
has its stop signs extended,'"
Florida 'officials remind drivers.
License plate numbers can be
turned in and the driver ticketed. 5
For the safety of Hardee County'
children, area motorists are urged,
to abide by the state law and stop
for all school buses to pick up or
.discharge children. "It's more than&
just the law; it's a child's life," cony
eludes the message.



AGE
rFrom 1A
Local 678 for the Road and Bridge
Department apd related employees.
It includes everything from general
maintenance to the weighmaster at
the landfill to truck and equipment,
operators, building inspectors anc
animal control officers, with an
average four percent step raise plu
the cost of living (COLA) adjust
ments.
Again, comparison of similar jolt
descriptions and positions at.other
counties were made. For.the low-
end employee, who were most ou0
of line, increases ranged from 5.9
to 12.58 percent, but averaged 8.14
percent.
"The across-the-board raises usu-
ally don't help the bottom employ-,
ees. This is where the buck stops. 1f
know we have to get good employ-
ees. Let's do this over two years;
and get the rest adjusted next year,'
said Bryant.

"If we don't adjust, we're just a
training ground for others. You jush
go around in circles. If you don't
raise it up where it should be this
year, next year the difference con-
tinues and each year after that,'
countered Commissioner Dale.
Johnson. .b
The motion to approve the con-
tract, including the proposed raises,
was approved 3-1, with Bryant disv
senting.

PEACE RIVER CENTER
MaryLou Kiley, head of Peace .
River Center made a plea to raise
its $15,000 funding to the $32,920
requested. During budget work
shops, the. commission cut thd
requested amount back to the previ-
ous $15,000.
Needs of mental health patient
here have escalated. The local cen-,
ter served about 1,000 Harde4
County residents last year, with
24-hour crisis stabilization, &A
domestic violence shelter and hotW
line, rape recovery resource center.
In the Wauchula center, abou,
750 residents were seen for outpal
tient counseling and' medication
Management, as' well as on-site
counseling several days a week at
the Southern Oaks assisted living,
facility on Will Duke Road. IiR
addition, 61 clients had 114 admis-
sions to the crisis stabilization unif
More and more often, these are
children and teens as well as adults,
said Kiley. "
Eleanor Davis, a county resident
and pyschiatric nurse at Peacs
River Center,said, "Most Hardef
County residents with mental
health problems have nowhere els4
to go. There are seven psychiatrist,'
plus staff who provide a full-range
of services for these residents
Mental illness is no respecter df
persons. Since G. P. Wood (state
hospital in Arcadia) closed in 200(
people have been placed in 46
group homes in the county, which
are served by Peace River Center.1F
urge you to reconsider reducing our
funding. "
Johnson asked how many were
children. Davis said she sees 120 to
180 patients a month in Wauchuig
and about 25 were children or
teens, mostly for depressive o
hyperactivity deficit disorders. 2
Peace River Center has a 21-
member board, which includes

bid for paving Sweetwater Road
came in alm6gt $800,000 higher
than anticipated.
Prestridge was talking about the
state Department of Transportation
!(DOT) contract to mi)' resurface
and make drainage repairs for the
10.539 miles from U.S. 17 South to
SR 66.
"It's a tough decision since we
got the Southwest Florida Water
Management District permit for the
cross drains, which need to be
replaced and widened, particularly
on the north end of that road. I hate
to lose that permit," said Prestridge.
There were three bids and APAC-
Southeast probably came in lowest
because it has the closest product
plant. It's bid was $2,036 million,
well above the $1,452.448 in state
SCRAP (Small County Road
Assistance Program) and hurricane
repair funding for the project,
explained Prestridge.
Drainage costs alone, roughly
122 feet of 18- or 24-inch pipe,
would be roughly $80,000, said
Mark Frazier, Road and Bridge
Department supervisor.
Available money would cut the
road project to 6.75 miles,' perhaps
to its intersection with Crewsville
Road, said Prestridge. He said sim-
ilar problems could occur with
plans for both Ollie Roberts and
Kelly Roberts roads where bridges
are slated for construction under
state funding in the next fiscal year.

Of The Herald-Advocate
SFour council seats are up for

a;m. and.continues through Friday,
Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. at City Hall, 3210

General Election is Oct. 30.
Anyone interested in serving on
the Zolfo Spring Town Council

ironths and be a registered Zolfo
Springs voter. Qualifying fees total
136.
,Seats available are those of Seat
1^inember and interim mayor Roger
green, Seat 2 of George Neel, seat
3) of Mirinie McKefizie a~hd"Seat 5
c(f-Lois Dandridge. Incuribent
Mlaggie Belcher will continue in
Seat 4 until the 2007 election.
i The first three are for two-year
terms. Dandridge was appointed on
June 12 to fill the seat of Roberta
1Ieyer, who resigned in May, until
n


the next regular election. Whoever
fills that seat will serve a one-year
term.
Town voters changed the com-
munity's traditional strong-mayor
system of government on June 27
in favor of the city manager-coun-
cil way used in most cities and
counties now.
Then-Mayor Mike Schofield
opted to fill the position of interim
town manager at a salary of $1,000
per month while selection of a per-
manent manager continues. Green
was selected by his fellow council
members as chairman/mayor.
Recently the council changed its
monthly meeting date from the sec-
ond Monday of the month to the
third Monday of rhe month to-
accommodate city attorney Gerald
Buhr, who added Avon Park to the
cities of Bowling Green, Mulberry
and Zolfo Springs that he repre-
sents. Avon Park's meeting night is
the second Monday, causing him to
ask Zolfo Springs to change its
meeting night.

SThe Country Club at 245 U.S. 17 in Bowling Green will have a bene-
fit barbecue take-out dinner Sunday beginning at 4 p.m. for local resident
John O'Brien who was injured in a recent automobile accident.

Voicing a complaint about taxes paid off Monday for Edward L.
Famer, 75, of Bowling Green.
SFarmer complained at a public hearing Thursday night in front of the
County Commission and on Monday morning called Property Appraiser
K4thy Crawford.
'His local taxes last year were $241 and would have risen to $551 this
year. He also wrote a hot letter to the editor for this week's edition that he
has cancelled.
Farmer said the county on Monday sent out an appraiser for his 10
acres, modest home and ailing orange grove. When the dust cleared, his
proposed new taxes will be $227.86, which is less than last year.
Farmer this year sold 750 boxes of oranges for $3 a box. Last year he
sold 1,200 boxes of oranges at an average of $2.75 a box.
He and his wife live on less than $1,400 a month from Social Security.
"My wife gets less than $400, and I get less than $1,000 a month."
JIe drives a 1991 Ford Ranger with no air-conditioning, and his wife
hasi 2000 Dodge van that is not paid for yet. The house and property are
debt-free.
H .His orange grove first had 600 trees, then he double planted to reach
11,09 trees, and now he has maybe 600 to 800 trees left and does not plan
o replant at his age of 75.
i Some of his trees, on sour rootstock, are dying from root weevils.
'They are having a picnic, and I'm not invited."
,Farmer thinks the county commission should approve a full $25,000
homestead exemption for low income seniors. He was also unhappy the
county commission recently raised gasoline taxes by five cents a gallon.
"Sometimes my mouth gets in gear before my brain does and gets me
in trouble," said Farmer

Ridge North Course in Avon Park. Titled "Golf for Life", the proceeds from

'Local Football Team Preparing
For Game: Wauchula's Wildcats are
working hard these days, preparing
for their opening tilt with Lake
Wales here on Friday, Sept. 25.
Coach McPherson has a large
crowd of hopefuls out for practice
each day, and indications are that he
will have a light, fast team. Some
newcomers are showing up unusu-
ally well and with a few of last sea-
son's lettermen back as a nucleus
around which to build.
Last year Wauchula won the
Ridge Conference title and hung up
a record of nine wins and one tie,
scoring 200 points to their oppo-
nents' 25. Coach McPherson is still
working for a game on Oct. 9,
which now is an open date. He
expects to schedule a tilt away from
home on that date, since he already
has five home games and four on
the road. Home games include:
Lake Wales, Clearwater, Mulberry,
Fort Meade and Arcadia.

Supreme Court Gives Carver A
New Trial: The Florida Supreme
Court on Monday granted a new
trial to William Carver, former
Philadelphian who in May of 1930
was convicted of first-degree mur-
der in the slaying of his wife, Ruth,
at their Sebring home on April 2,
1930. "Thank God, thank God!
That is the best news I've heard in a
year and a half," Carver is quoted as
saying when informed of the ruling.
He has been in jail at Sebring.
since his conviction. He was sen-
tenced to life imprisonment. The
Supreme Court reversed Carver's
conviction on the ground that cir-
cumstantial evidence presented at
his first trial in Highlands County
was insufficient to preclude all rea-
sonable assumption of his inno-
cence. The high court also reversed
the previous decision in the case,
which was an affirmation of the
conviction and sentence.

Alexander Home Here Destroyed
By Flames: Fire of undetermined
origin completely destroyed the late
H.M. Alexander home on South
First Avenue Tuesday night about 9.
Someone who saw the fire brought
word to the firedepartment, which
was then in session. ,The firemen
rushed to the scene but could not
save any of the building or its con-
tents.
The alarm sounded after the fire
truck reached the scene, and several
hundred -Wauchulans were on the
scene shortly afterward. The house,
which belonged to Mrs. H.M.
Alexander, was a total loss, as well
as furniture and belongings of the
Fred Lanier family, who lived in the
house but was away at the time. It
could not be learned if any insur-
ance was carried or how much.

50 YEARS AGO
Wildcats Open Season Tonight At
Fort Meade: The Hardee High
Wildcats will square off tonight
against Fort Meade in Fort Meade
in the season opener for both clubs.
The clash with the veteran Fort
Meade 11 will be a stem test for the
Wildcats' green squad, which has
only seven lettermen returning.


"The world's round," said a girl.
"It ain't!" shouted a boy.
"What is the world then?" asked
a friend.
"Pop says it's crooked," he
answered.
Know why? The Psalmist
confessed, "I was born a sinner."
Want to be straight, not
crooked? Believe in the Savior
and behave the Scriptures.
The Living Bible says, "The
whole Bible was given to us by
inspiration from God and is useful
to teach us what is true and to
make us realize what is wrong in
our lives; it straightens us out and
helps us do what is right. It is
God's way of making us do good
to everyone."


Often and often afterwards, the
beloved Aunt would ask me why
I had never told anyone how I
was being treated. Children tell
little more than animals, for
what comes to them they accept
as eternally established.
-Rudyard Kipling


Both clubs will have plenty of beef
in the lineup, but Fort Meade will
have the big edge in backfield expe-
rience and speed.
The Miners boast two of the best
halfbacks in the Ridge Conference
in Bill Smith and Bill Gillespie.
Both are big boys and unusually
fast for high school football. The
Fort Meade fullback is a speedy
190 pounder. The Wildcats will
start Captain Johnnie Terrell at full-
back. Terrell weighs upwards of
200 pounds but his previous foot-
ball experience has been at tackle.
Billy McCall will get the nod at
quarterback.

New 4-H Club Is Organized: A 4-
H Club for teenage girls was orga-
nized recently at the court house
according to Miss Sara Horton,
county home demonstration agent.
This group will meet from 9 to 11
a.m. on the second Saturday of each
month and, any interested girl is
invited to join. Programs for this
group will be based on the interests
and suggestions of the members.
The first meeting was devoted
primarily to discussing and plan-
ning programs for the coming year,
which will include such topics as:
how to dress becomingly, how to
use make-up, choosing becoming
hair-dos and dating. However, top-
ics which are of value to the whole
family will be included as: baking,
sewing, food preparation, plant
propagation and landscaping.

Youth Center Plans, Activities:
Under the supervision of the City
Council's Youth Activities Com-
mittee the Youth Center is open
daily Monday .through Saturday
from 3:30 to 6 p.m. and from 7 to
9:30 p.m. The various high school
clubs are working with Coach
Williams, city recreation director, to
help make the center a success. The
FFA Club will sponsor activities for
a two week period from Sept. 17-
29.
Monday night, the boys had their
string band there adding to the
entertainment offered. The club is
planning a dance for Saturday
night, Sept. 29. In an effort to satis-
fy the needs of an increasing atten-
dance an enlarged program is in the
making. Several well qualified vol-
unteers have been contacted and
have offered their services.

25 YEARS AGO.
Local Men Charged With Illegal
Sale: After a five-week investiga-
tion by the Sheriff's Office, the
owner of C.B.'s Caf6 and his broth-
er were arrested Monday on charges
of selling marijuana out of a trailer
behind their mobile home on Kiella
Road. They were charged with pos-
session of marijuana, possession of
marijuana with intent to sell and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
They were being held in the
county jail in lieu of $10,536 bond
each. The brothers were arrested at
their home about 5 p.m. Monday
after detectives Joe Moore and Jeff
Maddox carried out a search war-
rant issued by the court. The search
turned up in excess of four and one
half pounds of marijuana, baggies
and a scale in the trailer behind their"
mobile home, Moore said. The
baggies and scale indicated the mar-
ijuana was being sold, he said.

Sheriffs Boys Ranch Plans
Celebration: The Florida Sheriffs


Boys Ranch will celebrate the 24th
anniversary of its founding over the
weekend of Oct. 2-4. A full week-
end of activities has been planned
and the public is invited. Saddle
clubs from North Florida and other
areas have been invited to partici-
pate in a competition which will run
almost continuously throughout the
day on Saturday and Sunday.

National Hunting And Fishing
Day Is Sept. 26: Gov. Bob Graham
has signed a proclamation recogniz-
ing Florida's participation in
National Hunting and Fishing Day
on Sept. 26. "This observance gives
citizens a special day to reflect on
the vast hunting and fishing oppor-
tunities Florida has to offer," said
Col. Robert M. Brantly, executive
director of the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission.

10 YEARS AGO
Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against
Sheriff, City: A $2.4 million person-
al injury lawsuit filed against the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office and
the city of Wauchula has been dis-
missed. A former jail inmate had
filed the civil action early this sum-
mer, seeking damages for an injury
he suffered while playing volleyball
in the facility's recreation yard two
years ago.
He named Sheriff Rickey Dick,
top administrator of the jail, and the
government entity of Wauchula,
where the jail is located, as defen-
dants. He sought $600,000 in dam-
ages and a punitive award of $1.8
million. The man acted as his own
attorney, preparing the document
himself.

prisons are less than official,
recently-released results of the
1996 Scholastic Assessment Test
show Hardee students surpassing
state averages. Hardee Senior
-High School guidance counselor
Teresa Crawford, however, cautions
that only 28 students took the
College Board exam here, "and
that's not enough kids to'be a true
reflection."
In fact, S.A.T. officials did not
send a profile,of test results to the
school, as it will not draw compar-
isons or averages from districts
with fewer than 30 students.
Instead, individual students were
mailed their scores, with no notifi-
cation of the high school. But
S.A.T. figures do show that of the
local sampling of college-bound
kids, test scores came in at an aver-
age of 502 for the verbal and 503
for the mathematics portion.

'Cats Power Past Palmetto 26-6:
The defense paved the way in
Hardee's 26-6 win over Palmetto
last week. It started with a fumble
recovery touchdown by senior
Daniel Irby and continued with
another pair of fumble recoveries,
by junior Rashad Faison and soph
Jake McKibben. Add an intercep-
tion in the Hardee end zone by
junior Francisco Prieto to prevent a
Palmetto tally, and twin sacks by
senior Mike McMillian and a solo
sack by another senior, Will Tyson.
Yes, the defense had a superior
night. But, don't forget the offense.
Junior scatback Ben Wilson rushed
for 105 yards and a pair of touch-
downs, one the long 55-yard race
from defenders and one sheer effort
getting those extra inches at the
goal line. Soph Jake McKibben got
his first varsity tally. Richardson,
Irby and Charles Browdy helped to
tote the pigskin and a trio of
receivers, Faison, Rivers and fresh
Chris McClintock, snared passes
for good yardage.

Domestic Violence Workshop Held


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
A workshop on domestic vio-
lence was held Aug. 25 at the
Hardee County Courthouse.
Circuit Court Judge Robert
Doyel said domestic violence
awareness started in the 1970s with
the women's movement trying to*
get effective anti-rape laws passed.
"An offshoot from this was a
focus on violence perpetrated by ,
intimate partners husbands and
boyfriends.
"Domestic violence is don6 by
men and women, but primarily by
men," said Doyel.
Doyel said domestic violence has
psychological effects on children
who witness the crime.
He said domestic violence is
more widely reported today but that
arrests nationally are decreasing.
He said there is a pressing need
for new approaches for treatment of
domestic violence perpetrators.
Social sciences and ihe commu-
nity should design the new
approaches, which would be made
into laws by the Florida Legislature

and enforced by law enforcement
and the courts, he said.
Two current programs are incon-
sistent. The batterers' program says
domestic violence is about perpe-
trators trying to exercise power and
control.
The AA (Alcoholics Anony-
mous) and NA (Narcotics Anony-
mous) programs teach that perpe-
trators are "powerless to their drugs
Sor alcohol. Those two positions -.
power/control and powerless are
inconsistent." said Doyel. Over half
of domestic violence perpetrators
had been drinking alcohol or using
- drugs at the time of the incidents.
Some 139 people signed up for
the 5. 1/2-hour workshop, including
23 from the Hardee County


Sheriff's Office, 16 from the
Wauchula Police Department, and
representatives from Department of
Children and Families, Department
of Juvenile Justice, Department of
Revenue, Department of Correc-
tions, probation office, Hardee
County Clerk's Office, Kids Hope
United, Gillespie Ministries; Social
Solutions, Peace River Center,
attorneys, Tri-County Addictions,
Florida Department of Health,
school guidance counselors, public
defender staff, and state attorney's
office.
Clerk of Court Hugh Bradley
said this workshop ,was the first
continuing legal education in
Hardee County for credit for the
Florida Bar, law enforcement and
social services. It was organized by


Judge Doyel, who has been
assigned to Hardee since July 2005.
Dr. Kathryn Kuehnle of
University of South Florida sug-
gested while serving jail sentences...
perpetrators could stay in jail at
night and work during the day to
support their families.
There are a lot of repeat offend-
ers. "The programs we have sent
them to have not been very effec-
tive. That treatment (based on
power and control) has not been
effective," she said.
Dr. Kuehnle and Major Craig-
Broughtoin of the Volusia County
Sheriff's Office were the main
speakers. Broughton is considered
the leading Florida authority on
domestic violence injunctions, said
Doyel.

Are Now Easier To Get


Dove hunters will find it esier
than ever to get free quota hunt per-

permits for planted fields in Punta


Gorda, Lake Placid and Polk City

Letter To The Editor

Schools Should Teach Values,

Self-Esteem Instead Of FCAT


Dear Editor:
FCAT. I, personally will be glad
when the FCAT is discontinued and
its importance is no longer of value.
There is too much pressure for the
children to make the grade.
Our society,. pushes to -build
everything bigger and better,
stronger and faster as much as it
can.
There's only one thing wrong
with this picture.
What is the main goal or reason
behind this? What are we really
wanting our children to.learn?
Education is the greatest .gift
anyone canreceive, and that should
be free to everyone who is willing
to learn. It seems that'the more edu-
cation you have, the better you
think you are.
I personally don't agree with
that. Sure, you may have abilities
that others may not be able to do so
easily, but as long as you give your
best effort, there is hope in trying.
That is success, never giving up
the struggle to succeed. No matter
what the struggle in life, whether it
.be grades or life itself.
I have struggled my whole life
trying to fit in society, like most
people. I wish I'd had the opportu-
nity to further my education.
It really makes a difference in
life when you have encouragement
in life to do your best. It also does-
n't hurt to have money in your wal-
let, because that's what it takes to
help get your education. As crude
as that sounds, that's the truth.
Money makes all the difference
in the world to some people.
The more money you make, the
more valuable "you" think you are.
SThe more important you think your
job is, the more important you are
to society. I think not.


permit is a thing of the past. In spite
of the convenience the new system
provides, hunters better not dawdle..
Permits will likely go fast.
To participate, sportsmen must
possess a valid Florida hunting
license, a wildlife management area
permit when applicable and a free
federal migratory bird permit. All
hunters must have the free permit -
there are no exemptions from this
requirement. The three locations
requiring free permits are not.
Special-Opportunity Dove Fields,
Sso dove club memberships are not
valid.
Free dove field :permits will be
issued beginning at 10 a.m. EDT on
Sept. 15, and end at 11:59 p.m.
EDT on Sept. 24. All permits will
be -issued, on a first come .first-
served basis. Permits not issued


No matter what jobyou-have-in- ... during this period will be available
life, as long as it's legal, that job at the respective area check station..
has its own value. Just like you do, beginning at 11 a.m. on the day of


as a human being. It seems society
doesn't accept this thinking.
I work in the school system. I am
not a teacher. I am a lunch lady,
what's wrong with that? I am proud
of what I do, and I do count.
It seems that some think .you -
have to have a degree to count in
the school system. Or, much less,
have a opinion.
Everyone from the principal to
teachers, to lunch ladies, to custodi-
ans, to maintenance, to bus drivers,
to the school Board members make
up the school.
We ... "We" are a team. Not one
job, can do it all by themselves. Not
one j6b is more important than the
other, not one.
As far as the FCAT is concerned,
the children are the main goal, and
their grades are important. But the
FCAT itself shouldn't put so much
pressure to measure up the value of
the school or its students' abilities.
There should be no more big I's
and little U's. I thought when I
grew up there would be no more I
think I'm better than you, but I was
wrong. People still play their little
games. The only thing that changed
was that the people have gotten
bigger and meaner.
But I know who wins all the real
games in this life and the life after,
and that's what really counts.
What we do here will count
there, and I know God is fair. He
gives you a chance, more.than one.
Whatever our job in life, let's do
it with love and respect for all.

... Sheila Miller
Lunch lady and proud of it:

Individual hunters may reserve
only one permit per hunt, but they
may reserve a permit for two differ-
ent hunt dates. Regulations allow
on-e minor child less than 16 years
of age who does not have a permit,
to hunt under the supervision and in
the presence of 'an adult permit
holder. The minor and adult may
both take their legal limit of dove.

Over The Fence
By Dr. Ross A. Hendry



UNCLE KELLY ROBERTS, THE FUNIEST ONE
SMy Uncle Kelly Roberts was by far the funnies of my uncles and I
ever saw him that he didn't have a smile on his face. \e loved a practical
joke as much as anybody I have ever known and to add to all of that he stut-
t'red, just like Mell Tillis, but it didn't bother him a bit.
He and Aunt Ouida lived on the 40 acres they got from Granddaddy
and later, like everybody else in the family, they inherited land and had a
ranch of their own.
SIt's just that every time anyone saw Uncle Kelly he was in a good
i*ood and he always had a joke. He worked for the State at the livestock
market, and a neighbor down the road named Arch Lanier worked with him,
'and the two of them were constantly going at it.
E. Uncle Kelly always rode a horse with a martingale and while that may
not seem important to a lot of people I remember that term because it was
on the State Board Veterinary license exam and I missed it. I knew Uncle
Kelly rode a horse with a martingale, which is actually two leather straps
running from the girth to the breast collar. Then about 12" to 16" at the end
of each strap there was a brass ring that the reins run through, but I could
jist not remember what it was when I took the State Board in 1968.
S: Uncle Kelly had a really good eye for horse flesh and I think of all my
Uncles he rode the best horses. He worked at the market and knew the guys
from out west and whatever he rode usually came in from there. I specifi-
cally remember he got his daughter Sue the prettiest Palomino mare I ever
Saw when she was 10 or 12 years old.
One time when we were kids, I was staying with Uncle Kelly and Sue
and I decided to go camping. We went across the road down into to a place
.where there was a flowing well in what was my mother's pasture and we
set up camp for the night.
We were having a really good time and had settled down in our tents,
.Which were about a quarter of a mile from the house, when a panther
screamed. I don't think either one of us had never been more terrified in our
l'ves.
We got out of our tents, got our guns, stood back to back and walked
liack to the house, her covering the front and me covering the back. When
iwe got back to the house Uncle Kelly teased us incessantly and as a matter
of fact he didn't give us much peace about it for years after that. Like I said,
Qncle Kelly always enjoyed a good joke. A panther really did scream.
When we were working cows up at Grandma Smith's, Uncle Kelly was
always there and we didn't hire any outside labor except maybe Amos
'Williams who stayed at Grandma's as a ranch hand. It was a family opera-
tjon and all the uncles got together during roundup. My Aunt Mildred did-
in't have a cowboy to send so I think she was the only one who hired a cow-
boy to represent her.
As I mentioned earlier in this story Uncle Kelly had an incredible sense
.f humor about almost anything, including himself. I think a sense of
liumor is a real asset for someone who goes through life stuttering and
Uncle Kelly told this story on himself or no one would have known about
it.
S I believe he was a range rider during the tick eradication program when


the deer were essentially eradicated because they were the vector that the
ranchers couldn't do anything about. The cattle were dipped, but no one
ever developed a way to dip the deer so they were eradicated. I'm sure that
would create a real environmental stink today.
I know he spent a great deal of time in the Everglades hunting and that
was back before the era of modern swamp buggies, radios and cell phones.
It.made hunting in the Everglades a challenge because they had to do a lot
of walking.
He said he was walking one day and before he got back to camp it got
(ark and he got lost. He had a headlamp and every now and then he would
see a light off in the distance so he kept walking toward that light. The light
would go on and off, but he kept walking in that direction.
1 When he finally got to where he could see the light he found out it was
his own headlamp reflecting on a mirror hung up on a tree at the camp.

ing yields to, be down considerably. Delayed maturity for cotton in addition
to peanuts is anticipated with yields predictedito be down with recent rains
not able to reverse damage. The drought has delayed all field crops har-i
vesting in the Panhandle. Growers in Jackson County doubt that any cotton;
will be harvested and expect to lose over 90 percent of the crop. Peanut:

The station in Immokalee received almost two and a half inches of rain, the
majority of which came early in the week. With all citrus producing areas
still behind average rainfall, the precipitation they are getting is good for
the trees. Temperatures were warm this week, with daytime highs in the
upper 80s to mid 90s. Fruit sizes are being reported as variable, with fruit
quality overall good. A couple packing houses will open this week and will
begin receiving Ambersweet oranges and grapefruit.

Cross Country Takes


On Dozen Teams


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee boys and girls cross
country teams challenged the best.
The teams traveled to Clermont
last Wednesday to compete in the
South Lake Invitational, with
Hardee boys fifth overall, with sev-
eral running a personal best despite
a course filled with long, steep
hills, reported Hardee coach Don
Trew.
The competition included the
invitational's host Orlando Dr.
Phillips, Trinity Prep, First
Academy, East Ridge, Circle
Christian, Foundation Academy
and eight other squads.
Hardee senior standout Jose


Gutierrez came across the finish
line fourth with a time of 18:02,
followed by junior Pete Solis
eighth at 19:08. Behind them were
junior Gilberto Gutierrez, junior
Luis Reyes, soph Alex Flores, soph
Justin Hines and junior Arnold
Louis.
The Hardee squads were slated to
go Saturday to Gainesville for the
Gator's Mountain Dew Invita-
tional at the University of Florida
Country Club. Results were not
available at press time.
This week, Hardee hosted its first
meet, the Pioneer Invitational, on
Tuesday at Pioneer Park. Today
(Thursday), Hardee goes to

Hardee girls also participated at
Clermont last week and, although
placing last, had some surprising
accomplishments. In her first-ever
race, soph Edith Leon led the Lady
'Cat contingent with a time of
25:41. Freshman Hope Poucher
was two places back at 25:49.
Seniors Maricela Galvan at 26:37,
and Mandy Cornelius at 26:43 were
next.
Soph Nancy Ramirez at 27:05,
freshman Briana Aguila at 28:54
and freshman Marcela Ramirez at

ing.


Swimmers Fundraiser


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The final push to raise funds to
purchase new starting blocks for
the Hardee High pool is Saturday at
9 a.m.
Hardee boys finished second in a
quad-meet last week at Avon Park
with Lake Placid and Bartow also
participating. The Lady Wildcats
placed fourth overall. Senior Casey
Brutus and sophs Tyler Robertson
and Kaitlin Justice won events and
there were good relay finishes, but
final results have not been received,
reported coach Dick Daggett.
"While our swim team has a his-
tory of focusing athletes in the
important areas of goal-setting,
self-discipline and teamwork, our
student athletes are at a disadvan-
tage as we start from the side or in
the water at home meets and prac-
tices," said Daggett.
Insurance funds from hurricane
damage were used to provide solar
heating at the Recreation Complex
pool north of the high school but
there was not enough funds left
over for the blocks. At the Swim-A-


Thon, swimmers can swim up to
200 lengths or -for two hours,
whichever comes first. The goal is
to raise $2,500.
Sponsors for the swimmers are
welcome to contribute a fixed
amount, or sponsor a swimmer at
any amount from 10 cents per lap
to $1 or more per lap. All checks
should be made out to Hardee
Senior High School.
Those choosing to sponsor a par-
ticular swimmer have many to
choose from. Girls team members
are senior twins Jahna and Juliann
Davis, juniors Sarah Ezelle, Ana
Moric and Noelia Pesquera, sophs
Michelle Beck, Katie Jernigan,
Justice, Courtney Nicholson,
Katiana "Kitty" Pesquera, Rebecca
Quinones, Alex White and Brittany
Wiggins and frosh Yvette Chavez,
Samantha Cowart, Chelsea Gools-
by, Heather Kouns and Alicia
Revell.
Boys team members are seniors
Brutus and Erik Blandin, junior
Sean McCandless, sophs Bradley
Adcox, Sheldon Hartman, Joe
Porter, Chris Reid, Robertson and


* Saturday
Dustin "Dusty" Spears, and fresh'-
men Ottallah Murad, Joshua.;
Rickett and Jacob Willis.
"Our swimmers should be able to:'
complete all 200 lengths of the,
pool, about two and one-fourtfi'
miles. We've been pushing hard fot)
districts. They are an extremely.
hard-working group. It's been eight-
or 10 years since I had a group like'
this."

Volleyball Battles


District Foes


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A series of home district matches
ended for the Hardee volleyball
girls last week with a pair of losses.
The girls tackled Palmetto on
Tuesday and undefeated DeSoto on
Thursday, giving the Lady Bull-
dogs a scare before succumbing.
SThis week is unusual with a trip
to Sarasota Booker on Tuesday, a
visit from Sebring on Thursday and
participation in the Friday-Saturday
Lake Region tournament.
Next week's encounters include
trips to Avon Park on Tuesday and
Braden River on Thursday.
Last week opened on Tuesday
with a visit from the Palmetto Lady
Tigers, one of seven teams in the
wide-spread Class 4A-District 10,
which also includes Booker,
Braden River, Sebring, DeSoto and
Avon Park. Palmetto came in with a
4-1 district record, losing only to
DeSoto.
Hardee started on the right tone
with Madison Graham hitting off a
Palmetto block to even the score at
1-1. It was tied at 3-3 before senior
Jessica Koontz served her team to a
7-3 lead.
Graham served Hardee back in
contention at 6-7 and the teams
swapped points until senior
Brittany Cummins got the hot
hand, hitting the corners to surge to
a 19-8 advantage. Hardee tried to
climb back in the game but was
only able to narrow the game to 25-
13.
In game two, yet another Lady
Tiger senior, Susannah Whidden,
opened with a seven-point service
streak and Hardee never really got
in the game, losing again 25-13.
The Lady Wildcats came out in
game three much more focused,
tying the game at 1-1 and 2-2 and
3-3. Palmetto got a couple of points
ahead and stayed there, leading 5-4,
8-6, 9-7, 10-8 and gradually getting
points ahead to lead 22-15.
SKember Townsend skimmed the
net with several serves to cut the
lead to 22-20, but the teams traded
points until Palmetto finished it out
25-20.
"We waited until the third game
to really get going, but the girls
really hustled. They probably had
more blocks than in a long time.
Sometimes they covered well,
sometimes they didn't. We need to
be more aggressive on the blocks.
We were. getting our passes and
sets, just not putting it away," com-
mented Hardee coach Ken
I Leupold.
For the three games, Graham had
seven blocks, 10 good hits and two
kills. Townsend, Danielle Hines,
Krystin Robertson, D.K. Davis and
Sarah Mahoney shared in blocks.
Libero, defensive specialist,


Marissa Hall, had 11 solid passes,
with Davis at eight and Amber
Steedley at five. Hines had seven
successful hits, Davis eight and
Townsend six.
Megan White had three aces and'
six other good serves, with Bethany
Lang and Townsend sharing in that
success.
Against DeSoto on Thursday,
Hardee had "some close, really
good matches," said Leupold. The
Lady 'Cats lost 20-25, 18-25 and
14-25.
In game one, Hardee was up 18-
15, 19-18 and 20-18 before DeSoto
served it out. Game two was tied at
7-7, 8-8 and close at 10-11 before a
DeSoto run. "They had four runs,
never more than three points at a
time. We served around twice.
Hardee played as a team and had
some fun, too," commented
Leupold.
In game three, DeSoto forged
ahead 5-1 but Hardee tied it at 10-
10 before letting DeSoto swing
ahead to win 25-14. "The girls lost
focus and I wasn't happy with that,
but overall I was pleased with the
start of the second season (the sec-
ond time around to play each dis-
trict team).
Hall again led the team with 11
good passes, along with Davis and
Steedley, "who had her best passing
night of the season." Davis had four
aces and seven good serves as well
as five kills.
Mahoney topped out with nine
good serves. Lang had four aces
and White three plus seven good
serves.
The JV girls had a good outing
last week, despite their dual losses.
Against Palmetto, they won the
first game 25-20, lost the second
25-19 and appeared in control of
the third, and deciding 15-point
game when they were up 12-7.
Palmetto wouldn't quit as Brienne
Weatherhead shot several aces and
hard shots to run her team to the 15-
13 victory.
"The girls played very well in the
first game. In the second, they let
Palmetto get ahead and tried to play
catch up. In the third game, they
were ahead and just completely lost
focus. We've got to be better at fin-
ishing it out when we're ahead like
that," said a disappointed coach
Meredith Durastanti.
Esmeralda Martinez had 11 good
serves and Hannah Marshall added
10. Others in on the service parade
were Naomi Alva~do, Ariel
Hernandez, Marisa Shivers, Dana
Shoffner, Chelsey Steedley and
Halley Marshall.
Against DeSoto, which plays
year-round volleyball of one sort or
another, the JV girls tied at 11-11
before getting overwhelmed in los-
ing 25-12 and 25-6.

Look On The Bright Side
By David Kelly


FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
Wake up, Friday night "non-lighters."
If you have been dead or unable to comprehend anything over the last
four years, then you may have an excuse, otherwise this is your wake-up
call.
The Friday night lights in Wauchula have been burning bright over the
last half- decade. The Wildcats have rattled off some 45 regular-season vic-
tories in a row. (Maybe 46, but this was written before the game.)
Now I know we have all these doubters who insist they don't play a
tough schedule and those who want to pressure Coach Derren Bryan and his
excellent staff to win in the postseason. To these people I say phooey!
The Wildcats have beaten state champions, repeatedly, they have beat-
en playoff- bound teams repeatedly, and yet they continue to win.
As a Class of '90 graduate with Coach Bryan and life-long friend, I
admit some bias. And having a brother who played in the 1995 State
Championship game and two brothers who were part of the streak and
another brother who is in ninth grade who hopes to be part of the streak, I
tend to have a vested interest in the Wildcats' success.
Yet, I can't seem to understand how any Wildcat at heart could be truly
disappointed with the Wildcats' performance. I know Wildcat games are
well-attended, but they should be 7,000 strong every Friday night.
The other thing people must keep in mind is that high-school athletics
has a tremendous amount of obstacles to overcome each week. These are
high-school athletes we are talking about, teenagers. If there is one thing I
know it is the difficulty in getting teenagers to do anything constructive,
much less to do it on a consistent basis.
The Wildcats have won despite people quitting, injuries, girlfriend
breakups, deaths in families, bad grades, sickness, tempers, disappointed
and disillusioned parents, bad calls, bad decisions, hurricanes, playing a
season without a stadium, and on and on we could go.
Are you kidding me, this streak is incredible! Sure there are other
schools that have won back-to-back state championships, 20-something in
a row and blah, blah, blah.
I know there are schools with longer records and all that, but 45 in a
row is special, 50 in a row will mean five full seasons being undefeated.
There is a team here in Central Florida, the East Ridge Knights. The
Knights are a 6A school that has a 33 (maybe 34) regular-season winning
streak. They play a stellar schedule as well. And maybe they will one day
eclipse the Wildcats.
And, of course, if my dad was writing this article he would point out
Lakeland High School, which has won 33 consecutive games and two state
championships, and this past week flew to Ohio to play a game. And sure-
ly the Wildcats aren't there, yet.
However, I think with a few more years the Hardee program will
resemble Bill Castle's 5A dynasty.
Maybe this is the year the Wildcats bust out and win it all. Maybe
not.
Whatever the case for this season, Wildcat fans are truly blessed to
be a part of a winning tradition. They should revel in the glory of having a
winner to cheer for. Sure there is always room for improvement, but there
is also the idea of enjoying what you already have.
Don't take for granted any more Friday nights! Go out under the
lights and watch your Wildcats win.
And if they don't, cheer for them anyway. Go 'Cats!

yard gain. After a water break,
Gandy added three yards. Palmer
rolled out and passed to King for a
pickup of a dozen yards. Cimeus
had carries of 13 yards. Patterson
had a pair of tough three-yard car-
ries and Cimeus was stopped at the
one. Senior kicker Pablo Anselmo
notched a 17-yard field goal to put
Hardee up 3-0.
On the kickoff, a fumble was
picked up by Courtney Feazell,
who ran 80-plus yards for a touch-
down, nullified by a penalty. St.
Pete started at the Hardee 44.
Scrambling while trying to pass,
Girardi picked up six yards. A
Sanders run was stopped at the line
of scrimmage as the first period
ended.
Starting the second quarter, a
carry was fumbled out of bounds
and a pass was too long. Hardee
took over on downs. The 'Cats
went three and out and were forced
to punt. Sanders got only a three-
yard runback. On the first play
from scrimmage, White intercepted
the; Girardi pass and gave the ball
back to the Wildcats at the Baron
36
his time the 'Cats capitalized.
lCmeus went quickly off left tackle
for an 8-yard gain, then went over
the right side for 24 yards. He went
behind Cameron Durham and the
rest of the offensive line for the
final four yards to pay dirt.
Anselmo's kick made it 10-0.
On a penalty on the PAT, Hardee
kicked from the 45, with Anselmo
putting it in the opposing end zone
for a touchback. The Barons gained
a yard and lost one on the Hardee
blitz, before play was halted at the
7:40 mark because of lightning in
the area. The stands quickly emp-


tied as well.
Play didn't resume until after the
rain slowed about 9:20. A shotgun
pass went out of bounds and St.
Pete punted. Hardee started in the
hole on a 15-yard penalty and had
faced a first and 24.
Cimeus gained eight yards back
but a pass attempt was tipped and
incomplete. With the wet field, the
ball was slick and a high snap
caused a fumble, giving the Barons
the ball at the Hardee 14.
When Girardi faded back to pass,
he was hit hard by Will Krause, jar-
ring the ball loose: An alert
Wiggins picked it up and outran
everyone 80 yard to score. A fake
PAT was negated by the St. Pete
defense, but it was 16-0.
Patterson, Jester, Villegas, Alex
Lanier, Wade Mahoney, Kierre
Cook, David Newcomb, Jordan
Grimsley, Gandy and Marwin
Simmons lined up as Anselmo
kicked off. The ball sailed into the
end zone for a touchback.
There were twin penalties on the
first play, a personal foul and an
illegal forward pass. Hardee chose
the latter because it was a loss of
down, making it second and 14.
D.J. Robinson and Johnny Ray
Harris stopped a pass attempt and
make it third and 18. An incomplete
pass led to a punt.
The ball rolled dead on the
Hardee .43. Gandy, Palmer and
Cimeus ran the ball, before Palmer
found King along at the 30. He
avoided would-be tacklers and
jumped into the end zone with
Hardee's fourth score of the
evening. An Anselmo kick made it
23-0 with 48.5 seconds.
The officials again noted light-
ning in the area and stopped the
game. With their offense limited to

would hide in a closet whenever a thunderstorm came up.

less than a dozen yards and no first
downs, and facing tough academic
tests in the morning, St. Pete decid-
ed not to wait it out.
Hardee amassed 182 total yards,


56 on two completed passes to
King and 126 on 20 carries, 74 by
Cimeus. Defensively, Newcomb
had eight tackles, Joseph Barton
4.5 and Harris three plus a sack.


Krause added twin tackles, one for
a loss, and caused the fumble which
Wiggins ,gathered for a long TD
run.
"The defense did a good job


shutting down their Division I
receiver and running back. Barton
has been playing good ball as well
as the others we mentioned," said
defensive coordinator John Sharp.

KNOW YOUR CHOLESTEROL NUMBERS
Septe;,,er is National Cholesterol Education Month. The theme this
year is "Know your cholesterol numbers Know your risk Give your-
self some TLC."
September is a great time for adults to have their cholesterol measured
because cholesterol numbers help determine the risk for heart disease -
and knowing your cholesterol numbers and your risk can help you get start-
ed on lowering both..
Individuals can check their risk status with the online calculator at
http://hp2010.nhlbihin.net/atpiii/calculator.asp?usertype=pub.
Total cholesterol is the sum of all the cholesterol in your blood. The
higher your total cholesterol, the greater your risk for heart disease. The
total values that matter most to you are as follows. Less than 200mg/dL is
a 'Desirable' level that puts you at lower risk for heart disease. A choles-
terol level of 200 mg/dL or greater increases your risk; 200 to 239 mg/dL
is considered "Borderline-high.' 240 mg/dL and above is considered 'High'
blood cholesterol. A person with this level has more than twice the risk of
heart disease compared to someone whose cholesterol is below 200 mg/dL.
High density lipoproteins (HDL) is the "good" cholesterol. HDL carry
cholesterol in the blood from other parts of the body back to the liver, which
leads to its removal from the body. So HDL helps keep cholesterol from
building up the walls of the arteries. An HDL of less than 40 mg/dL pro-
vides a major risk for heart disease. A reading between 40 and 59 mg/dL is
better. An HDL of 60 mg/dL and above is considered protective against
.heart disease.
Blood cholesterol levels can be determined by a simple blood test.
Contact your physician to initiate this process. Once you know your num-
bers, visit the website and calculate your 10-year risk using the risk assess-
ment calculator. Remember ; .. your goal should be to keep your LDL cho-
lesterol low and your HDL cholesterol high for an overall cholesterol read-
ing of less than 200 mg/dL.
This is a very user-friendly website and I recommend trying it. I did
and found it to be easy to navigate and very informative. Get on the path to
good health today and know your cholesterol levels.
In the coming months I will talk about the different kinds of fats and
how they affect cholesterol levels. Stay tuned! You may contact the Hardee
County Extension Office at 863-773-2164 for more information.


To Your Health!

GET 5 TO 9 A DAY!
Most Americans struggle to get their recommended 5-9 servings of
fruits and vegetable each and every day. We are fortune to live in Florida,
where there is an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetable options.
Most people do not realize how easy it is to get their five to nine daily
servings of fruits and vegetables. Servings are much smaller than people
think. One serving is only 1/2 cup of cooked vegetables or fruit, 1/4 cup of
dried fruit, 3/4 cup of 100 percent juice, or one cup of salad or leafy greens.
A large salad, for instance, can add up.to two or three servings of vegeta-
,bles. '
Fresh, frozen, dried, canned and juiced fruits and vegetables all count
towards the "5 to 9" goal. A glass of 100 percent juice with breakfast, a
banana for a mid-morning snack, a salad at lunch, some carrot sticks or an
apple in the afternoon, and pasta with cooked veggies and tomato sauce at
dinner is just one example of how easy it is to get up to nine servings a day.
Stock up on dried, frozen and canned fruits and vegetables so thb' are
always available for your family. Keep ready-to-eat fruits and vegetables s
available in a bowl on the kitchen counter and at eye level in the refrigera-
tor.
Apples, pears, grapes, carrots and celery sticks are just a few examples
of some quick and easy snacks. You can also pre-cut larger fruits and veg-
etables and store them in plastic sandwich bags to grab on the go. Have fruit
at breakfast daily. Add lettuce, tomato, onion, sprouts, cucumber or other
favorites to your sandwiches. The possibilities are endless!
Variety is the spice of life, even with fruits and vegetables. Try some-
thing new! Ever tried a tangerine, kiwifruit or baby bbk choy? Bring home
a new fruit or vegetable. Add something new to a green salad, such as man-
darin orange slices or dried cranberries. Add cucumber and tomato slices on
your sandwich,and a add peppers and carrots to a healthy side dish. Trying
new fruits and vegetables will keep you and your family' interested in
healthy food, and you may find some new favorites.
Get involved in your community to help make fruits and vegetables
more available to all community members.


TIME STANDS STILL FOR NOTHING
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and tie
Southwest Florida Water Management District were legislatively charged
to complete a cumulative impact study on the Peace River. The results will
be used in making recommendations for action to the 2007 Florida
Legislature.
In a series of public hearings around the area, the results of the study
have been outlined in three- to four-hour presentations. While none of thi
results are surprising, they do outline continued deterioration in the natural
system from a variety of sources, basically human interaction:
The status of the system documented in the 1940s and years since
shows extreme changes in the land use. While growth by all facets 6f
human life in the area is cause for the changes, this interaction has been cat-
egorized into three areas causing the most impact to the Peace River and its
tributaries. They are public water supply, over-allocated ground water
resource (mostly agriculture), mining and climactic changes.
The study delves into five subcategories: regulatory, land use, hydrol-
ogy, water quality and fishes. Each of these categories was studied comn
paring information from the 1940s to the present day. An abundance if
information was given in the presentations. The information can be found
on the Web at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/water/mines/prcis.htm. '
We encourage all area landowners to review these presentations. The
information is detailed enough you can drill down into smaller watershed
such as Charlie Creek or Horse Creek and others that can be associated wit
your ownership.
All human interaction with the system has created impacts. The que;
tion now is how to minimize those impacts to assure a healthy system is
sustained and how to go about assuring those decisions are ultimately acted
upon. The Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association will be working
with the newly formed committee to study the information and participate
in creating a recommendation to the Legislature.
Regulatory actions ate always possible. Yet there seems to be a conr
sensus from the participants, including the lead agencies, to work with all
parties to determine feasible modern-day workable solutions.

Changes From 1940 To 1999:
Greatest Overall Increase Improved pasture, (from three percent
to 27 percent.
Greatest Single Conversion Native upland habitats to ag, 54 per.
cent.
Greatest Loss of Wetlands To agriculture, 18 percent; and to min;
ing, 10 percent.
Intense Agriculture Increased from 107,115 acres to 229,832
acres.
Improved Pasture Accounted for 27 percent of the, watershed in
1999, up from three percent in 1940.
Improved Pasture Largest increases are in the Peace River at
Arcadia, Charlie Creek and Horse Creek sub-basins.
Data shows significant increases in flows in Joshua Creek, Horse
Creek and Prairie Creek, which are directly related to agricultural dis-
charges during the dry season.
Joshua Creek shows the largest changes in water quality characteris-
tics in the entire basin.

Other News
A new state law effective July 1 exempts electricity used for agricul-
tural production from the state's sales tax. The regulation requires those
requesting the exemption separately meter electricity used in production
activities from the electricity used for other purposes. If the electricity is
centrally metered and is used for both tax-exempt and taxable purposes, the
purchase of the electricity is subject to tax.
.The exemption covers virtually all aspects of a farmer's 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. There is a Web link with the Florida Department of
Revenue Information Publication on the Ag Electricity Sales Tax
Exemption or you may also contact our office for the forms.
Worker Protection Standard inspections are being conducted in our
area by random spot checks and full audits. Be prepared by reviewing your
operation to assure standards are being met now.
In the April edition of our monthly newsletter, "Citrus Grower," we
provided refresher information as to required standards. You can view the
article on our Web page at www.prvcga.org. Information is also available;at
your local extension office.

Golfing 'Cats Add Twin Wins


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee Wildcat golf turned in
Good performances last week in
picking up a pair of victories.
The local boys upped their record
to 7-2 with wins over Frostproof at
home and Lake Placid at Placid
Lakes.
This week, the Wildcats went to
Sebring on Monday to join 35 other
teams in the annual Hawkins
Memorial Tournament. Today
,- (Thursday), the 'Cats are at Sun 'N
Lakes to face Sebring.
Next week's matches are Tues-
day at home against Lake Placid
and Thursday at the Pinecrest to
face Avon Park.
In last week's Tuesday match at
home against the visiting Bulldogs.
of Frostproof, Hardee won handily
153-182. Senior Justin Painter, as
Usual, paced the 'Cats with an
even-par 36 with three birdies.
..Junior Kaleb Saunders came in one
shot back at 37 with one birdie.
Classmate James Olliff came


home in 39 with one birdie.
Soph Jake Crews shot 41 with a
birdie, classmate Ben Krause 42
and junior Kyle Cobb 46.
The 153 was another low score
for Hardee. "Our team scores con-
tinue to be impressive. We will see
how we stack up against teams we
don'tplay too often when we go to
the Hawkins," commented coach
George Heine.
Last Thursday at Lake Placid,
"Hardee came away with another
victory; the score as 159-217. Lake
Placid has a very inexperienced
team and it showed by their score,"
noted Heine.
"We were again led by senior
Justin Painter, who came in with a
37, which could have been much
lower but he let a couple of loose
swings get him at the end," said
Heine. Saunders followed with a
39, which included a double bogey.
"Jake Crews continued to play
solid golf with a 40 and Brek
McClenithan had one birdie in
shooting a 42," continued Heine.


"Ben Krause slipped in with 44-
his putter has been mad at him in
recent matches. Kyle Cobb shot 51
and he, too, is struggling with his
putter. Hopefully, they will have
their putting woes corrected by dis-
tricts (Oct. 9-10)," concluded
Heine.
Meanwhile, Hardee girls have
been short-handed as well as bat-
tling afternoon showers. They host-
ed DeSoto and Lake Wales on
Thursday, with only two Lady
Wildcats playing. Kristin Cumbee
shot 56 and Ciara Lambert shot 63,
reported coach Byron Jarnagin.
Lake Wales shot a team 240 and
DeSoto 255.
Instead of going to the Hawkins
this week, Hardee hosted Avon
Park on Monday. Today (Thurs-
day), the girls are slated to travel to
the Lake Wales Country Club to
play Frostproof. They return there
next Tuesday to play Lake Wales
and-Sebring. Bartow visits Torrey
Oaks next Thursday.

as needs arise. Shown at one of the presentations are (from left) Mosaic employees Mike
Chanen and Willie Anderson, Bowling Green Elementary School Principal David Durastanti and

COURTESY PHOTOS
A group of motorcyclists called the
Patriot Guard Riders showed up here
on June 25 in support of 1st Lt.
Errington Lorimer Hendry, a fallen
Hardee County veteran. They can be
seen standing guard outside of First
Baptist Church of Wauchula in the top
photo, holding American flags. The
riders were asked to attend the funer-
al by Sean Holcom, who is Hendry's
grandson-in-law. Holcom is a member
of the Patriot Guard and is also on
active duty in the military. He is cur-
rently stationed in Fort Bliss in El
Paso, Texas. Members of the Patriot
Guard are veterans, active military
service personnel or just regular peo-
ple who share a love of motorcycles
and a great respect for those who risk
their lives for America. They are
nationwide, and attend the funerals of
fallen veterans and act as an honor
guard and as family supporters.
Twenty-seven of the riders from all
across Florida attended, and lined up
their motorcycles at the church, as
the middle picture shows. Through
the rain, the Patriot Guard led the
funeral procession to the New Zion
Baptist Church cemetery, bottom pic-
ture, where Hendry was laid to rest.

Florida Citrus

Acreage Decreases


*On Friday, the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA) released its
Commercial Citrus Inventory Pre-
liminary Report indicating an over-
all decrease in Florida citrus
acreage.
SThe 2006 total for all citrus
acreage is 621,373, down 17 per-
cent from the 2004 census. The net
change, a loss of 127,182 acres, is
the greatest in any non-freeze peri-
od and second overall on record.
Citrus trees total 81,909,000, a
decrease of 16.4 percent from the
pIrevious census and 23.5 percent
from the 1998 high of 107,110,200.
Polk county continues to lead in
acreage while Hendry, Highlands,
DeSoto and St. Lucie cdiunties-
make tip the top five. The top five
counties account for nearly 55 per-
cent of the state's citrus acreage and


nearly 56 percent of the state's cit-
rus trees.
All orange acreage is down 15
percent from the previous census to
529,241, only 13.5 percent higher
than the record low of 466,252 in
1986. Valencia trees represent 55
percent of the total, the greatest por-
tion. in the series dating to 1966.
Grapefruit acreage declined 28.8
percent from the previous census to
63,419, the lowest total acreage
since 1966.
The Florida citrus industry has a
$9.1 billion economic impact to the
state, employs nearly 90,000 people
and covers 750,000 acres in the
state. Florida Citrus Mutual, found-
ed in 1948, is the state's largest cit-
rus ..grower's organization with
nearly 10,000 grower members.


Dirt Road Diaries
By C.J. Mouser


My 16-year-old son and I can't work together. It doesn't matter what
the project is, if we try to do it together, it will turn into an ordeal and one
of us will walk off mad.
SWe needed a ditch a foot deep by about eight inches wide and roughly
30 feet long, to lay some underground cable. Despite knowing what we
know about trying to work as a team, we went out there and tried it anyway.
He showed up with two shovels and I showed up with a post-hole digger,
and the battle began.
"What're you gonna do with that?" he asked, eyeing the post-hole dig-
ger.
ger. "Dig the ditch," I said in a tone that implied it should have been obvi-
ous.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. That's the dumbest thing I ever heard of. It'll take
days that way. And what is that for?"
I had pulled a roll of neon-orange surveyor's tape out of my pocket and
was unwinding it.
"Well, see, we need a straight line. If we don't have one, our ditch will
wobble all over the place."
"Mom! You're making this way too hard. That will just get in the way."
"B,oy, just stand there and hold your shovel until I get this tape strung."
He sighed and leaned on the handle of his shovel until I got the sur-
veyor's tape in place.
"There," I said, brushing off my hands. "Now if you'll just ." I
began, but was interrupted by the sound of a shovel striking dirt and some
serious under-the-breath muttering.
"... surveyor's tape ... gonna be here all day ...'
He broke ground with a grunt and then flung the shovel full of dirt over
his shoulder with a hiss.
"Jake! Don't just fling that dirt anywhere! We have to refill this ditch
once we're done, we're gonna need that dirt." I
"Mom. We're not baking a cake here. I think I know a thing or two
about digging a ditch. It's not brain surgery."
"No, but it can stillbe done neatly," I replied firmly
"Yeah, and it'll take us a week!"
"You'll see," I said, dragging the post-hole digger to the other end of
the tape. "I'll start at this end, and we'll see who gets to the middle first and
whose ditch is neater." I was rewarded with more muttering.
"... have a life, you know .. don't plan to be here this time tomor-
row ... dumbest thing I ever heard of!"
I rammed the post-hole digger into the dirt and was just pulling it up
full when the surveyor's tape came streaming at me in a frilly mass of
orange, tangling in a heap at my feet.
"Oops," he said. "I cut it with the shovel by accident."
"Accident, my Aunt Fanny! Well, you can just wait while I retie it."
"Mom! We don't need it!"
"Look, boy," I growled, "I'm the Skipper, you're the Gilligan. We're
gonna get this ditch dug my way! I know we'll fight and fuss through the
whole thing, and I'll end up smacking you with my hat and you'll go whine
to Mr. Howell about how mean I am, but in the end we'll have our nice neat
ditch and we'll be best friends again."
I retied the surveyor's tape and was headed back to my end of the hole
which really hadn't even begun yet when the tape came hissing
through the air again and ended up back in a pile at my feet. He didn't even
look-up this time, and offered no apology.
I noted that his part of the ditch was halfway to the middle point. I was
way, way behind and I knew that I was beat, but rather than admit it, I
switched tactics.
"You want some iced tea?" I asked.
"I sure do," he replied.
On my way out the door with the tea, I grabbed a lawn chair and pulled
it up next to the work area. Then I sat and talked to him and rewound the
surveyor's tape while he finished digging the ditch, about 15 minutes or so
. later.
OK, the ditch was a little wobbly. And, well, the dirt was little scat-
tered. But it would serve nicely for the purpose.
"Good job, Gilligan!" I said, grinning at him.


He didn't ask me to admit that he had been right and I had been wrong,
.He just quietly drained the glass of tea, smacked me on top of the head with
his cap and walked away.
And we were best friends again.


t Was awakened this morniny from. a not-so-sound
sleep be that shrill, whirrinY sound.
Much earlier than always, but for the last time in
this never-to-be-forgotten old town.
That long, Lumbering vans sidled up to the curb a
split second before sunrise,
Flashing a mover's address former our new home
town to the neighborhood's sLeepe, peering eyes.
The btrL packers swarmed into the house like
stagehands between scenes, removing the props,
Lovinglet-selected objects of comfort that gave
respite from the raging current that never stops.
Puiv.ng up stakes. Perched for flight. Reacting to
these surroundings for the last tim.e.
Fluttering eyelids remind with a pang of an
avoided collision and emotions I'll never berhowme.
Passing the high-steepLed church where I sought
higher ground to sur/ve the foods that grew,
Homes of tense, surface creatures who meant well
and those who didn't but pretended to.
Midafternoon. That once-vibrant abode now a bleale
relic of our recent past.
on the freeway, hovering in suspended animation
between then and now, mvelancholt of severance
receding at last.

stopped their drive and won," said
Smith. .
....TiglXt. (Thursday),. the. junior.
Wildcats take on the Lake Placid
junior Green Dragons in a p.nfi
game.
Last week's game "was a super
experience, Our kids came together
as a group," commented Smith.
The statistics were pretty even.
Hardee gained 152 yards on 33 car-
ries, while DeSoto had 158 on 38
carries. Hardee had seven first
downs, DeSoto nine. Each team
lost possession on a fumble. Hardee
had 11 penalties for 8S yards, while
DeSoto had nine for 70 yards.
The difference, perhaps, was in
the passing of freshman quarter-
back Ezayi Youyoute, who had 15
carries for 100 yards and was four
of seven in passing for 77 yards,
including a 43-yard TD play. In
contrast, DeSoto was one of six for
only 25 yards.
DeSoto took the opening kickoff
and went forward, and backward on
twin penalties, to punt to Hardee.
The junior Wildcats went on a 10-'
play drive to score the only TD in
the- first half. Marvin Cook arin
Antjuan Jopes joined Youyoute in
carrying the football, while Terrell
Smith came back to get an 18-yard
pass and run five more yards to put
Hardee at the 1-yard line. Cook
went over the goal line for the
score. A bad snap nullified the
conversion kick.
For the rest of the first and all of
the second periods, the teams bat-
tled, going forward and back.
Linior St. Louis recovered a
Bulldog fumble and DeSoto alertly
recovered a punt return.
As the first half ended, DeSoto
was driving toward the Wildcat
goal line. A good pass rush by
Nolan Neuhauser slowed the
attack. With 48 seconds left
Bulldog Xavior Robinson got a
first down at the Hardee 7. A penal-
ty pushed the Bulldogs back five
yards and the Hardee line rushed
forward to sack the Bulldog quar-
terback as time ran out.
Opening the third quarter,
Hardee received the kickoff and
began a 14-play drive which ended
abruptly when a fumble gave the
ball to the Bulldogs on the DeSoto
26.
The junior Bulldogs took full
advantage, marching the opposite
way in eight plays, stalled a bit
when Jonathan DeLaRosa tackled
the Bulldog quarterback Robinson
after a 31-yard gain. Three plays
later, Robinson went over left
guard to score. A conversion pass
was broken up by Hardee's Smith.
It was a tie game, 6-6.
Early in the fourth quarter,
Hardee and DeSoto swapped pos-
sessions as each tried to get control.
Just past the midway point, Hardee


took over on downs and spent four
minutes on a seven play drive, cul-
minted by a Youyoute 27-yard
pass to Smith at the DeSoto 30. He
was free to outrun everyone else to

SOWER
Ihchael Guij ,
Mener Georga


A lady raised a sea gull from
birth. He was tied in the yard, and
was given everything he needed. k,
But he refused to eat. He lost his ;.
spirit.
One day the lady drove him to "
the. shore and released him..
SSuddenly he cocked his head and,
listened. Then he stretched his'.
neck and raised his feathers.)
Away he soared to the other gulls.-
They heard his cry and welcomed-
him.
The Bible says, "Deep calletlt
unto deep." The deep within you
is calling to the deep beyond you.
You were made for the Lord.
You'll never be satisfied until you
come to Him. Come now, won't
you?

GAME OF THE WEEK
Wake Forest at Mississippi


iIiiistrauon oy Bncu riantC Zw


Rebels bring new look
T hi yer ws sppoed o bediferet fr Oe Mss.toucdows il tstwe~aLi-i vitor sivaluuii'i


This year was supposed to be different for Ole Miss.
Ed Orgeron made the change that he felt were necessary to
turn the Rebels into bowl contenders after a 3-8 showing in
his first season at the helm. Orgeron emphasized more of an
attacking defense and brought in former University of Miami
assistants Dan Werner and Art Kehoe to help an anemic offense
that averaged just over 10 points per game in the final six games
last season.
The arrival of former Indiana running back Ben-Jarvus Green-
Ellis and former Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaeffer on
campus gave Wenier, the offensive coordinator, the players he
needed for his scheme. Green-Ellis currently ranks third in the
SEC in rushing yards, but Schaeffer las struggled in his first
season back in big-time college football.
While Schaeffer and Orgeron may take the brunt of the
criticism, the defense has been woeful against Missouri and
Kentucky the past two weeks and ranks 102nd nationally in total
yards allowed. The unit must come to play against undefeated but
beatable Wake Forest on Saturday or the Rebels risk limping into
the bulk of their SEC schedule at 1-3.
* Records: Wake Forest 3-0(1-0 ACC Atlantic); Mississippi 1-2
(0-1 SEC West). 0 Coaches: Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (62-65-1);

Running back Jimmy
1 A Johns, defensive back
Lionel Mitchell and linebacker Juwan
Simpson were suspended for breaking
team niles and sat out the Crimson Tide's
41-7 victory over Lonislana-Monroe.
"We've had seven guys this summer break
team rules," Alabama head coach Mike
Shula said. "We had two suspended,for:
the Hawaii game and two suspended (for
the Vanderbilt game) as well as ifeth tree '
(against Louisiana-Monroe). We are going
to discipline guys when they don't do
things right."
viy"RAN SAS Houston Nutt
announced on Sunday
thatjunior free safety Matt Hewitt is
making the move to linebacker. "We don't
know how fast (Hewitt) can come, but we
feel pretty good about it," Nutt said.
"Right now we will go with that. I don't
know if Matt is going to start, but we will
see how It goes."
i~iURN Punter Kody Bliss earned
the SEC's Special Teams
Player of the Week award after averaging
48.2 yards on six punts in last week's 7-3
victory over LSU. Bliss had a 61-yard punt
in the first quarter and added a 62-yard
punt In the second quarter.
DIRIniA DeShawn Wynn
S established himself as the
Gators' top tailback by running for 104
yards on 22 carries In last week's 21-20
victory at Tennessee. "The tailback,
DeShawn Wynn, nmnning for 100 yards,
that doesn't happen very often against
(Tennessee's) defense," Florida head coach
Urban Meyer said. "I'll let you know right
now, he's starting against Kentucky."
B 3RIA Quarterback Matthew
R A Stafford threw for 107
yards on 10-of-17 passing, ran for a 4-yard .
score and added another nm of 9 yards In
his first career start as the Bulldogs shut
out UAB 34-0 last week. "Matthew did, for
the most part, very well as far as making
decisions," Georgia head coach Mark
Richt said. "Overall, I thought he did a
nice Job. Matthew has proved to be a great
runner. That's just one more thing
defenses have to deal with."
IBurTUCKY Andre Woodson threw i
for 290 yards and three
touchdowns, Including two to Dicky
Lyons Jr., in last week's 31-14 victory
over Mississippi. Woodson moved into
ninth place on the school's all-time
passing list with his performance.
LSU's second-to-last possession
last week stalled out when a
fourth-down defensive passing
interference penalty against Auburn was
waved off. "The officials said that (Auburn
defensive back Eric Brock) tipped the
ball." LSU head coach Les Miles said. "I
know the rule. If the ball is tipped at the
line of scrimmage, there Is no pass
interference."
DilGSISSIPPI The Rebels fumbled six
times and lost four of
them against Kentucky. "We usually do a
good job protecting the football, but we
Just didn't do a good ob of it (last week)."
RB Ben-Jarvus Green-Ellis said.
miSS STATE After picking up jst
five penalties over Its
first two games, Mississippi State was
fagged five times and lost 41 yards
against Tulane. For the first time since
1996, the Bulldogs have committed five or -
fewer penalties In three consecutive
games.
CCARDLINA Steve Spurrier has
IP OLI A said that Syvelle
Newton will get his second straight start
at quarterback this week against Florida
Atlantic. Newton took over for the
suspended Blake Mitchell and accounted
for 263 yards of total offense, Including 67
nlshing yards, in the Gamecocks' 27-20
victory over Wofford.
IINNSSEE Justin Harrell tried
to gut it out against
Florida, but a runptured biceps tendon
proved to be too much to overcome and he
is now out for the rest of the season.
Harrell Is the last Tennessee player to wear
No. 92, which was retired In honor of late
NFL Hall of Famer Reggie White.
jANJDERBILT After collecting only
WM DERBIL 203 yardsof total
offense In their first two games, the
Commodores had a breakthrough last week

moving uniforms down to the
junior varsity and the eighth
grade program. In the past, the
uniforms were sold and the
money went to the football
program.
The varsity got new uniforms
In 1973. Only 50 new helmets
were ordered, which will go to
the varsity. Next season,
Kapusta said, he will buy
another 50 helmets. In all, about
125 helmets will be needed when
new football safety rules take
effect in 1978.
"'It'll be easier on the
program financially if we buy a
few new helmets each year
instead of all in 1978," said
Kapusta. He dosen't have the
ill on the 50 helmets, but he
said they cost between $30 and
$40 each.
Inside the helmet is foam
padding that forms to. the
player's head once it is on. The
foam padding completely
surrounds the head and absorbs
much of the impact when the
head is hit.
The helmet is a clear plastic.
The Wildcat decal and orange
coloring is on the inside. With no
paint on the exterior, the
helmets can not be chipped.
"They don't need recon-
ditioning," said Kapusta. He
said the old helmets needed
repainting every year or so.

.GAME OF THE WEEK
Boston College at N.C. State


Eagles sharpen talons


H having already parlayed its good fortune into a spot in the
Top 25, Boston College can establish itself as the top team
inthe ACC's Atlantic Division with a victory Saturday
night at North Carolina State.
The Eagles were the beneficiaries of big breaks as they held off
Central Michigan 31-24 in the season opener and pulled out a
34-33 double-overtime victory over previously 18th-ranked
Clemson in Week 2. Boston College was taken to tie limit again
last week, but Matt Ryan threw a touchdown pass in overtime and
the defense recorded an interception on the game's final play to
secure a 30-23 victory over BYU.
Reeling from back-to-back losses to Akron and Southern Miss,
it's crucial that the Wolfpack right the ship and generate some
inuch-needed momentum by pulling the upset in their conference
opener.

With their 30-23
S6TON COLL. double-overtime
victory over BYU, the Eagles made Tom
O'Brien the winningest coach in program
history. O'Brien (69-42) surpassed Joe
Yukica, who collected 68 wins over 10
seasons from 1968 to 1977. "I'm honored
to be able to do it, but there's a lot of
people who have a lot to do with it,"
S 'Brien said.
EMSON The Tiger claimed the
program's first win at
Florida State since a 34-23 victory in the
second game of the 1989 season. Florida
State, which was ranked ninth in the
national polls, was the second-highest-
rated opponent that Clemson has defeated
on the road. The Tigers beat eighth-ranked
North Carolina 10-8 in 1981.
M( Quarterback Thaddeus Lewis
was sidelined in the Blue Devils'
36-0 loss to Virginia Tech after sustaining
a helmet-to-helmet hit. "He's a tough kid
and he took some shots in there, but he'll
be ready to go against Virginia (on Sept.
30)," Duke head coach Ted Roof said.
m nep n sr ^Tony Carter scored two-
points on a blocked
extra point return and went 69 yards for a
score after Florida State blocked a field
goal against Clemson. The Seminoles had
never returned a blocked extra point
before Carter did it, and the blocked field
goal was the program's first since a 37-0
victory over Notre Dame in 2003.
IwTPCH The Yellow Jackets
collected 501 yards of total:
ofense In last week's 35-20 victory over
Troy, marking the first time since the 2004:
Champs Sports Bowl game against
Syracuse that the program has surpassed
the 500-yard mark. "I thought that
(offensive coordinator) Patrick (Nix) and
his staff did a superjob of keeping them
off balance not knowing where the ball
was going and taking advantage of their
pursuit and their speed and their
swarming to the football," Georgia Tech
head coach Chan Galley said.
pM VAy T Last week's 45-24 loss at:
West Virginia marked
the program's 18th consecutive road loss
to a top-five opponent. The Terrapins' last
road victory over a top-five team came on
Oct. 7, 1950, when they defeated Michigan
State 34-7.
With last week's 31-7 victory
-I ,over the Hurricanes.
Louisville ended the nation's longest
streak of consecutive weeks in the top25.
Miami had spent the last 107 weeks in the
top 25 before getting bounced Sunday, a
streak that started on Nov. 28, 1999 with a
45-13 victory over Syracuse.
AON Making his first career
start. redshirt
freshman quarterback Cam Sexton helped..
the Tar Heels to a 45-42 victory over
Division I-AA Furman last week by
throwing for 265 yards and two
touchdowns on 14-of-20 passing. "I think.
(Sexton) played with an awful lot of
poise." North Carolina head coach John
Bunting said.
IW-.STATE Sophomore quarterback :
Daniel Evans relieved
Marcus Stone and threw for 97 yards and ..
a touchdown on 8-of-11 passing in the
Wolfpack's 37-17 loss at Southern Miss.
"He got his feet wet, which is good, and he.,
did some good things, that Is for sure,"
N.C. State head coach Chuck Amato said .;
of Evans.
p INA Chris Gould averaged a
career-best 47 yards on
five prints In last week's 17-10 loss to
Western Michigan. Gould's 59-yard punt in
the third quarter was the longest of his
career and the longest by a Virginia punter
since 2001 when Mike Abrams booted a
67-yarder in a 43-7 loss to Florida State.
LkT.ECH Sean Glennon had his
TEC first 300-yard passing
game, completing 15 of 25 passes for 301
yards last week against Duke. "I thought
(Clennon) did very well," Hokles head
coach Frank Beamer said. "I'm as happy
about the fact that he had time to throw. I
think our offensive line has gotten better
In that situation."
Yw FOREST Redshirt
sophomore
linebacker Aaron Curry registered two of
the Demon Deacons' five sacks in last
week's 24-13 victory over Connecticut. It
was the most sacks collected by a Wake
Forest team in Jim Grobe's five-plus
seasons as head coach.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue Permit No. FLAI 19890
to the City of Wauchula, for a permit to re-rate a 1.0 MGD 3MADF Type I secondary treatment domestic
wastewater treatment plant to a 1.2 MGD 3MADF Type I secondary treatment domestic wastewater
treatment plant The facility is located at 155 Griffen Road, Wauchula, FL 33873, Wauchula, FL 33873, in
Hardee County.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an
administrative hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline
for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may
petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the 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.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt
of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under section
120.60(3) of the 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) of the 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, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will
be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-
106.205 of the 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 Department permit identification
number and the county in which the subject matter or activity 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 are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department
action;
(f) A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the
Department action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants
the Department to take.

A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action is based shall state
that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as
required by rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a
petition means that the Department's 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.
Mediation under section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes is not available for this proceeding.

The application is availablefor public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Southwest District Office, 13051 North Telecom
Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637-0926. 9:21c

Letter To The Editor

A New Hospital Would Be

Good For Hardee County


Dear Editor:
I'm writing in reference to the
recent article in The Herald-
Advocate pertaining to Florida
,Hospital's plans for a new hospital
ftn Wauchula. I would like to know
'if Florida Hospital has serious
'intentions to do so, and if so, does
'otur County Comm'issioni arid eco-
nomic development support such?
As a concerned citizen, I for one,
believe that a-new quality hospital
'i essential to this county if this
.county is serious about growth,
ahich our politicians claim.
Korida Hospital purchased the
propertyy on North Hwy 17 some
years ago and has claimed their
intentt was to build a new hospital.
i"'There has been little to no excite-
'nent or mention of this by our
county Commission since they
ought their location. Instead, ener-
gy has been focused on an airport
?that may or may not materialize.
'I recall the public meetings that
iook place after Hurricane Charley.
pThe consensus of most residents
from those meetings showed that
)we want our town to grow, attract
'high wage jobs, and at the same
"Lime retain are small town image.
SYet, there never seemed to be
S~


mention of the fact that we were
getting a new hospital. And now,
after reading The Herald-Advocate,
I am under the impression that we
may not?
Perhaps no one has taken time to
consider what a hewv hospital could
mean for this community. As is
commiion knowledge, Florida is
growing fast and growing older;
There are already plans to build a
55 and older community just past
where the site of the new hospital
would be. These older residents
need and require quality health
care. This is why Florida has more
pharmacies than any other state.
Plus the fact that if high wage jobs
is what this county wants to attract,
look at what the health care indus-
try pays.
The trickle down effect of a new
hospital is too many for me to list.'
Just take a look at Sebring at what
Florida Hospital has done for their
city if an example is needed.
Please, I ask that our county
doesn't drop the ball on this one.
It would be a major disservice to
the residents of this county if our
county does.
Sincerely,
Russell Graylin Smith
Wauchula


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
You, 0 Lord, are concerned for
men and animals alike. How
precious is Your constant love,
0 God! All humanity takes
refuge in the shadow of Your
wings. You feed them with
blessings from Your own table
and let them drink from the
rivers of Your delight.
Psalm 36:6b, 7-8 (TLB)
FRIDAY
I send this letter to you in God's
church at Corinth, Christians
cleaned up by Jesus and set
apart for a God-filled life. I
include in my greeting all who
call out to Jesus, wherever they
live. He's their Master as well as
ours! May all the gifts and bene-
fits that come from God our
Father, and the Master, Jesus
Christ, be yours.
I Corinthians 2:2-3 (ME)
SATURDAY
Be careful what you think,
because your thoughts run your
life. Don't use your mouth to tell
lies; don't ever say things that
are not true.
Proverbs 4:23-24 (NCV)

SUNDAY
(Jesus said), "That is why I tell
you, whatever you pray about
and ask for, believe that you
have received it and it will be
yours. And, whenever you stand
praying, you must forgive any-
thing that you are holding
against anyone else, and your
Heavenly Father will forgive you
your sins."
Mark 11: 24-25 (PME)

MONDAY
The Lord God is with you; He is,
mighty to save. He will take
great delight in you. He will quiet
you with His love. He will rejoice
over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

Let Christ's peace be arbiter in
your hearts: to this peace you
were called as members of a
single body. And be filled with
gratitude.
Colossians 3:15 (NEB)

WEDNESDAY
Attention, Israel! God, our God!
God is the one and only! Love
God, your God with all your
heart. Love Him with all that's in
you, love Him with all you've
got/
