Crews Sentenced To Life In Prison


)By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Protesting continually through-
out his sentencing hearing but
never professing his innocence, a
Hardee County man was handed a
ife term last week for the murder
of his former girlfriend and mother
f his child.
Thomas Jessie Crews Jr., 41, of
olfo Springs, was sentenced to life
imprisonment for killing Sondra
Denise Barrington, 20, of Bowling
,Green, on Oct. 10, 2002.
SA Polk County jury had found
him guilty on Sept. 26 of second-
degree murder in Barrington's 2002


disappearance. He was sentenced
on Friday by Circuit Judge J. Dale
Durrance in an eighth-floor court-
room inside the Polk County
Courthouse.
It was a sentencing filled with
outbursts from Crews and stern
admonishments by Durrance.
"It is so obvious that you are just
cold and calculated, and you are
contemptuous to this day," Dur-
rance told Crews after yet another
exchange at the conclusion of the
near hour-long hearing.
"Get him out of here," the judge
then ordered the bailiffs, whose
numbers had increased as the hear-


ing progressed.
But Crews resisted their efforts
and started gesturing at the judge.
"I have a warm heart," he shouted.
His words became unintelligible as
the judge boomed from the bench,
"Get him out of here!"
Bailiffs led Crews away.
The sentencing hearing started
with Durrance asking Crews if he
had anything to say.
"I don't think I have anything
that's going to change your mind,
Your Honor," Crews had respond-
ed.
Then a presentation from the
defense, handled by Assistant


Public Defender Mel McKinley,
began.
McKinley called Randy Crews,
Thomas Crews' brother, up to the
podium to address the judge. He
asked Durrance to consider a letter
from his wife, Stacey Barrington
Crews, who was a cousin to Sondra
Barrington.
The letter was read to the judge.
"I know in my heart he is not that
kind of man," she wrote.
"Regardless of everything you saw
and heard, Thomas is not a mean
man.
"This is an innocent man," her

ZS Voters To Choose Commissioner Monday

Of The Herald-Advocate
Zolfo Springs voters will head to
khe polling place on Monday to
choose between two candidates for
the Town Commission.
SRunning for the slot being vacat-
ed by Minnie McKenzie, who is
retiring, are Sarah Lazo and Didi
'White.Those registered to vote in
the town may cast their ballots
'between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the
Civic Center, 3210 U.S. 17 S.
Whoever wins will join Maggie
Belcher, Lois Dandridge, George
!Neel and Juan Otero at the com-
;j


mission table beginning in Novem-
ber.
Both Lazo and White are new- -
comers to town politics.
Lazo, 34, of Hickory Court, was
born and raised in Hardee County
and has been a resident of Zolfo
Springs for three years.
She is owner and operator of
Sarah's Cuts & Curls on State Road
66 in the town. She also is a full,
time assistant manager at Cato's
department store in the Wal-Mart
plaza in Wauchula.
Her schedule includes classes at
Southeastern University in Lake-


Lazo said she chose to run for
elected office in the town "because
there has been so much chaos."
Explained Lazo, "I feel as a citi-
zen and parent of three children,
knowing that my children are going
to be raised in Zolfo Springs, I want
to know they are safe, the streets
are safe and the elderly are safe."
Lazo said she trusts in God, and
that God guided her decision to run.
"It's a beautiful community," she
said of the town. "I want to help
Zolfo Springs. I want good deci-
sions to be made for the communi-


ty, and I want to be a part of that. I
feel in my heart Zolfo Springs has
had a lot of chaos, a lot of sadness,
and I think it is high time Zolfo
Springs gets straight."
She said she is ready for the chal-
lenge. "If sometimes it takes step-
ping on people's toes in order for us
to live a better life, we will just
have to.
"We live here. I live here. The
people I care about live here. We
need to make a better life," Lazo
said.

Forget U.S. 17, toll roads are the
future.in Hardee County.
A Dec. I meeting in Orlando may
finalize what is already evident,
private investors are supporting toll
roads throughout Florida, but espe-
cially in the rural counties.
The discussion of a pair of toll
roads through Hardee County was
part of last week's Hardee County
Commission meeting when Lynn
Topel brought up the subject during
her presentation on economic pro-
grams which involved the county.
Topel, executive director of the
six-county Florida Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initiative
(FHREDI), came to tell the com-
mission of a business incentive pro-
gram, but changed focus when she
urged commissioners to turn out in
force for the Dec. 1 meeting.
"The North-South toll route is
going to happen. It will be in place
by 2010. The East-West road will
come a bit later," said Topel. Land
for both corridors is being made
available by some large landown-


ers, she said.
Former commissioner Bill Lam-
bert identified two of the landown-
ers as State Sen. J.D. Alexander and
State Rep. Baxter Troutman, both
part of the Ben Hill Griffin family,
which owns acres and acres of
Heartland properties. "They are
pushing for the road to benefit them
that will hurt Hardee County," said
Lambert.
Marcus Shackelford, who also
attended the Oct. 17,regional trans-
portation meeting in Tampa, said,
"It comes down to dollars. There's
not enough tax dollars to maintain
roads and not to build them. So the
state is going to privately-financed
toll roads. It's the big thing on the
horizon. It will all be decided in
Orlando on Dec. 1." He said being
a county of rural economic concern
has not been much help to the
county on this issue.
Commissioner Bobby Ray
Smith, the commission liaison to
FHREDI, said it had worked hard
to get the U. S. 17 four-lane project

County Will Impose Impact Fees Beginning July 2007


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Impact fees won't be effective
until July 2007.
Impact fees for a range of ser-
vices folks building in Hardee
County might want have been
delayed for at least six months.
At last week's meeting, the
Hardee County Commission voted
to wait until July 1, 2007 to imple-
ment proposed impact fees, those
charged to residents, and business-
es and industries coming here, to
help pay for the cost to provide
roads, law enforcement, fire protec-
tion, parks and recreation, emer-
gency services, library and public
buildings to service them.
Pat Steed and Patrick Brett, of
the Central Florida Regional
Planning Council (CFRPC), pre-
sented a short video on implement-


ing the impact fees which have
been discussed for several months.
They recommended using 75 per-
cent of recommended rates effec-
tive July 1, 2007 and go up to 100
percent by Jan. 1, 2008.
They pointed out that ad valorem
tax and other revenue dollars have
to be used for the new services if
impact fees are not applied.
Commissioner Bobby Ray Smith
agreed. "It's either impact fees or
millage."
County Manager Lex Albritton
said the impact fees would be kept
in a separate budget and used only
for expenses related to growth and
its service demands. Impact fees
cannot be used for maintenance or
operational expenditures.
To questions from the audience,
Steed said her agency is presently
completing an impact fee study for


the Hardee County School Board
and would expect to have that com-
pleted before the county would
implement its fees in July and then
they could adjust them if necessary.
Local building consultant Don
Chancey said the effect would not
be as hard on new businesses as
local homeowners, who will add on
or remodel because the cost of a
new home is prohibitive with the
impact fees.
Former commissioner Bill Lam-
bert wondered if population indica-
tors, such as the number of residen-
tial permits in the last year, would
indicate the need for impact fees or
if they would have a chilling effect
on development. Which comes
first, jobs or businesses fees, he
asked.
SMarcus Shackelford suggested
impact fees were a way to get


"champagne costs," higher than
needed to pay for services that
could take years to provide.
Albritton said any study would
not show that ad valorem revenue
dollars exceeds costs of service. Ad
valorem (property) taxes raise
about $1.4 million per mill and the
county is now at nine mills. "How
many of our voters want to pay for
growth. Should every taxpayer
have to pay for new growth?"
"The bottom line is that we're
still not going to catch up. We just
fall farther and farther behind. I
wanted to do 25 percent of the fees
recommended, but we know the
county is not going to stay the same
for ever and we need to prepare to
meet those needs," said Commis-
sioner Dale Johnson. -
After much more discussion, the
commission told Albritton and


County Attorney Ken Evers to draft
an ordinance tentatively setting the
impact fees at the 75 percent rec-
ommended.
The CFRPC report compares res-
idential, non-residential and indus-
trial impact fees of the area with
those proposed for Hardee County.
On single-family homes, aver-
agely 2,000 square feet or three
bedrooms, Hardee's 75 percent fees
would be $3,943, compared to
$7,207 in Polk County, $7,190 in
DeSoto, $5,124 in Manatee and
$2,317 in Highlands.
For the multi-family home of
1,500 square feet or two bedrooms,
those figures are Polk-$6,284,
DeSoto $5,789, Manatee $3,201,
Hardee $2,787 and Highlands
$1,631.

The 2006 Hardee High Wildcat football team has improved during
season and still shows signs of being a Special Team.
The Wildcats labored under the pressure of keeping a four-year regu
season winning streak intact. Hardee moved it's streak to 46 in a row bef
losing to Bartow in Game 5.
The first six games of the season, as the team adjusted to a new opti
offense, the Wildcats made about four turnovers a game. The defense I
been steady all season.
The offense, however, has eliminated turnovers the past two games
Hardee can achieve Special Team status in one of two ways -
defeat DeSoto this Friday night in Arcadia for a fifth straight district title
to be district runner-up and have some success in the state playoffs.
The 2006 Wildcats have overcome the loss by transfer of Chris R
who moved to Lakeland to live with an aunt and is a wide receiver for
USA Today No. 1 ranked Lakeland Dreadnaughts. Rich is playing so
good ball for the deep and talented Dreadnaughts, but the Cats have do
fine without him.

The Wildcat Band put on a very impressive performance at the 1

Football is big in Hardee County, from the pee wee leagues through

The letters CATS stand for Character, Attitude, Trust and Strength.
SHead coach Derren.Bryan, who is expecting his second son this

preparation meets opportunity.
The Hardee-DeSoto football rivalry is the state's oldest, beginning
1923. Hardee holds a 52-28-5 advantage in the series and has won sever
a row, coming from behind in 2005 in the last minute to win 16-12.

The Bucs won last week on a 62-yard field goal by Matt Bryant a

An important election is coming up on Nov. 7 with early voting alrea

For U.S. senator I am going to vote to keep Sen. Bill Nelson

I like Charlie Crist, a Republican, for governor. He is Florida's att

years.
Bill McCollum, a Republican, is my choice for attorney general. H
well qualified and is a former U.S. Representative.
For Florida chief financial officer,. I plan to vote forAlex Sink
Democrat who has an outstanding record and qualifications.
Republican Charles Bronson deserves another term as state comn
sioner of agriculture.
'I am still undecided on Republican Vern Buchanan or Democ

funds.
"At the DOT meeting on
Tuesday, it's gone again. They want
N to put passing lanes on U.S. 17
r south instead of four-laning it."
Commissioners wondered how it
) could happen when that section of
r U.S. 17 is the bottleneck on hurri-
cane evacuation routes for south-
5 west Florida, and "why Hardee
County gets the axe again," as
7 Commission Chairman Nick Tim-
merman termed it.
"You need to be active at these
g transportation meetings. It's even
a. more important as they look at sites
and access points to these routes.
That North-South route will pull
traffic off U.S. 17 and out of
Hardee County," said Topel.
Lambert asked about the toll
roads' potentials. Topel said corri-
dor planning is combined with
DOT, the Turnpike Authority,
Department of Community Affairs,
Enterprise Florida, Department of_
Environmental Protection and the
governor's office. They want seven
corridor projects in the state, one'in
the Miami area, one in North
Florida and the others in the interi-
or.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
asked if the Turnpike Authority got
its money by bonding. He said mil-
lions of dollars had been spent on
U.S. 17 and it's lacking one piece
Sof being four-laned all the way.
Topel said toll roads are the
future for state roads. One corridor
would go from 1-75 north to meet I-
4 in Polk County, going through
eastern Hardee County. The other
would go from the Port of Manatee
east to connect to Port St. Lucie.
the Because of the Avon Park Bombing
Range, it would turn southeast,
lar probably bypassing near the
ore Sebring airport as Highlands
County politics demand it. "It can't
ion go near the buffer zone around the
has bombing range, but Highlands
County wants it to cross there,""
said Topel. ,
to Lambert said it was possible that
Ior it would connect with the North-
ich South route to get down to the SR
c 66 area and proceed east to
the Sebring.

She went on to note the case has
been hard on both families. She
asked for a low sentence, and a
prison as close to home as possible.
McKinley then asked Durrance
to consider statements from
Thomas Crews' mother, Sandra
Crews. "His mother is here, but this
is too emotional a moment for her
to address the court," he said. He
told the judge her statement could
be found in the pre-sentencing
investigation that was prepared and
placed in the case file.
Then, he offered a testimonial
from Thomas Crews' employer.
"I have spoken with Walter
Olliff, Mr. Crews' employer, and
Mr. Olliff stated it was his wish to
be here today but his son was in an
accident several weeks ago.and
needs somebody at home to tend to
him," McKinley explained to the
judge,. : .
."Mr.. Olliff said AIr. Cre.\s .\w is
an. exemplary employee and he
would hire him back immediately if
the opportunity arose," the defense
lawyer said. "He handled money,
he collected for Mr. Olliff, and he
always handled it honestly. He was
a crew leader, and he always treat-
ed the crew fairly."
McKinley then pleaded. the
defense's position in the matter,
"The evidence in this case at'jury
trial' does not support a life sen-
tence," he told the judge. "We take
the position that the state neither
proved the death or, that Thomas
caused the death, and we will cer-
tainly be appealing the conviction."
He asked the judge for a term of
from 20 to 25 years.
Assistant State Attorney' Cass
Castillo there called the, victim's
mother, Shirley Barrington, to the
podium.
"Your Honor, this is a very hard
time for both families, especially
my side," she began.
She spoke of the children.
"When Kayla asks why, why did
T.J.'s father kill my mother, what
am I supposed to say to her? What
am I supposed to say to these two
children when Thomas acted as
judge, jury and executioner?"
Shirley Barrington continued,
fighting tears, "She gave her life for
these children because this' man
was so abusive. No matter how
hard she tried to stay away from
him, he called and called, he
stalked her.
"My daughter drew her last
/ breath at the hands'of this man!"
she shouted through tears.
Thomas Crews, sitting alone, on
the front row of the jury box, called
out for the first time, "I object! This
is hearsay!:'
He was quickly quieted by his
lawyer and by the judge.
"My grief is so deep, I have
almost lost my sanity," Shirley
Barrington continued. "I will pull
my daughter from that pond so that
she can rest!
"Twenty-five years?" she ques-
tioned. "There is not enough pun-
ishment any judge can put on this
man that will ever be enough for
me."
As her statement continued,
McKinley offered objections to the
judge, saying the mother's com-
ments went well beyond the bounds
of an "appropriate" victim impact
statement.
Durrance denied his objections.
"His family can drive a road to
go and visit him. I can see no road
to Heaven, except the one I have
planned for my life, and I won't see
her again until my last breath and I
see her in Heaven," Barrington
added.
"Sondra loved this man. Love


got her killed," she said. "I'm beg-6
ging you today, please put him in
life in prison without parole." -
The mother concluded, "I know
it won't bring my daughter back,
but at least all the other mothers
will not have to go through what I
went through, pure torture."
Next to speak was DavidO
Howell, uncle of 'Sondra' Barring'r
ton.
He spoke of the loss to him and.
to his family.
"I don't know how a man could
do what he done," he told the judge&.
"I'll rephrase. A man doesn't beat'an
child, especially his own son's
mother." z
He faced the jury box and said,
"She didn't deserve dying, Thomas-
Crews!" ',
Crews again called out in,
response. j
"He didn't have to kill my nieceji
A man walks away," Howell told
Durrance. "He could have walke'~4
away. 9T
".Inr25 years, I can't go see mH
niete.-n,2 25,years, my kids canrtgqT
seetlheir- cousil-In 25 years, hefA

he said. 'IT
Howell, too, asked fora sentence
of life in prison without parole. .
Prosecutor Castillo then addressA
ed the judge, saying that if it wer-q
not for Crews' own calculated
design in covering up his crime, hflt
would have been convicted of firstirl
degree'murder. '
"I will not use and agree to yotu?
using any of it to mitigate his sen-
tence," Castillo said.-"He has the
ability to affect the sentence he
receives, but absent that," he
allowed his thought to trail off as it
pointed out to the judge that Crews
could say where Sondra Barringi-
ton's body can be found, but woulIo
not do so. : air
Castillo noted that life was thee
maximum sentence the court could
impose.
McKinley countered, "This is a
case where life in prison is not
appropriate. Life in prison is for the
worst criminals before the court.'
and this is not." 1'
Thomas Crews left the jury bo iA
and stood before the judge for thqn
pronouncement of his penalty. on
"Your Honor," he said, "I still
would love to put my kids througlP
college, and I would do that if I was.
able.
"In years to come, I would love
to see that. I would support that ifil
was able," he told Durrance.
Durrance then handed down the:
life term, saying, "I do. find there
are multiple victims in this, not*-
only Mrs. Barrington and the chil-i
dren, but even your own family
members.
"But," the judge continued, "after
hearing all this and I give you the
opportunity to speak, you quickly,
fast-forward to your children ii
college."
Crews began a retort, but was cu
off by the judge.
"Don't interrupt me!"
Crews persisted.
"I've heard from you!" Durrance
said sternly, asking, "Do you hea
me? Don't interrupt me again!"
It was then he termed Crews
"contemptuous to. this day" anc.'
ordered the bailiffs to remove hirr
from the courtroom.
The proceedings were watched
by family members from both sides
and, in an unusual turn, the fore-
man from the jury which convicted_
Crews.
Durrance's judicial assistant,:
Mary Carrier, said later that tlhe:
jury had asked to be informed of:
the sentencing date so that they:
could attend. "In 28 years .I'vej,
never had that happen before," she
said.

WFTHER SUMMARY
Several areas of the Panhandle got some relief from the dry conditions
during the week of October 16 through 22. Most rainfall fell over the
Panhandle and northern Peninsula localities in Jacksonville, Jay, Live Oak,
MacClenny, Marianna, Monticello, Pensacola, Quincy and Tallahassee
with totals ranging from over a tenth of an inch to nearly three inches. Other
areas across the State did not receive any rainfall for the wee;.. Recorded
temperatures at the major stations averaged from two to four degrees above
normal with Miami, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach setting record
highs. Daytime highs were mostly in the 80s with a few reports in the 90s.
Pleasant evening lows were in the 50s, 60s, and 70s with a couple of areas
receiving at. least one low in the 40s.
FIELD CROPS
Rains interrupted some fieldwork in the Panhandle areas With most
activities back on schedule by the end of the week. Rains coupled with
strong winds toppled some cotton on the ground in Santa Roga County.
Peanuts are small but yield is better than expected and near average in Santa
Rosa County. Rain showers made it possible for growers in Washington
County to plow the remainder crop of peanuts. Rains last week also made
digging peanuts easier in some Panhandle areas, but will have little effect
on helping to mature late-planted peanuts. Peanut digging was 64 percent
finished by the end of the week compared with 83 percent last year and the
five-year average of 87 percent completed by October 23. Peanut condition
is rated 45 percent poor, 35 percent fair, 17 percent good and 3 percent
excellent. Areas in the Panhandle and northern Peninsula reported short to
adequate soil moisture with some pockets of very short supplies. There has
been a lack of precipitation in the central and southern Peninsuld areas with
soil moisture rated mostly very short to short with some areas of adequate
supplies.

VEGETABLES
Fall crop harvesting in central and southern Peninsula areas continued
to increase, Clear conditions continued to boost the growth and develop-
ment of vegetables. Tomato harvesting is proceeding at a rapid pace around
Quincy. Growers are still planting peppers and tomatoes in Collier County,
Light harvesting was underway by the end of last week for snap beans,
sweet corn and eggplant. Producers marketed light supplies of'cucumbers,
squash and tomatoes.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition is improving. Land preparation for
small grain winter forage is active. Small grains (oats, rye, and ryegrass)



Letter To The Editor

Shirley Barrington Gives

Thanks For Prayers, Support


Dear Editor:
To the people of Hardee County,
we the family of Sondra Barrington
would like to thank you for the
many prayers for our daughter.
Without you people I do not feel we
could have made it without you
standing behind usj-n our.tinme.pf
need. o ,,,..
We thank you all so much from
the bottom of our hearts. You the
people of Hardee County made it
possible for us to put Thomas
Crews away for good.
I, the mother of the missing
child, had just about lost all respect
for the judicial system. I thank God
for Judge Durrance. He has once
again restored my faith in the court
system.
I do not always agree on some
things, but justice was done on Oct..
20, 2006. Judge Durrance, I want to
especially thank you for your role
in Sondra's case. I understand that
you cannot show interest in either
side. I am so glad you took the time
to listen to everyone's side and
made the only decision that could
have been made.
You showed me once again that
the system still works, no matter
what race, creed or color you are.
Friday, Oct. 20, 2006, justice
prevailed once again. It was the day
we the family of Sondra Barrington
have been waiting on for four long,
years. As I said in the the begin-
ning, there is no perfect crime.
Sooner or later your faults will
surely find you out.
Thomas Crews willingly and
Swantonly did take the life of anoth-
er human being. I feel so much bet-
ter now knowing that he will spend


the rest of his life in prison without
parole. This way at least he will
never again be able to hurt some
other mother's sweet :and innocent
daughter.
We the family of Sondra
Barrington are still not through
with her case yet, until we are
allowed to move her from where
she is at now to a peaceful resting'
place. We her family cannot rest
and neither can she. :
Sondra will never be forgotten as
long as we live. Some judge should
be willing to sign another warrant
so we can get her out of where we
need to move her to a final resting
place for her.
Once again thank you all for
your prayers and moral support.
May God go with each and every-
one of you. '
I would like to thank our Herald-
Advocate for bringing you the peo-
ple of Hardee County the news
from the Bartow courtroom back to
Wauchula.
Your friend in Jesus Christ, our
S Lord and Savior,
Shirley Barrington

and clover are being planted at a rapid pace since the mid-week rain. The
dry spell of the past couple of months has left many ponds dry; all ponds
and streams are very low. Cattle condition is mostly fair. In the northern
areas, extremely dry conditions are delaying planting of winter annual for-
ages. Cattlemen are feeding supplemental hay. Hay supplies are short with
several producers looking to purchase hay. Most of the cattle are in fair con-
dition. Many fish ponds are almost dry. In the central areas, pasture condi-
tion is very poor to good with most in fair condition. Most of the cattle are
in poor to fair condition. Grass has not grown much due to drought. In the
southwest, grass has all but stopped growing. Pasture condition is poor to
fair and most of the cattle are in fair to good condition. Statewide, cattle
condition ranges from poor to good with most in fair condition.

CITRUS
Several areas across the citrus region reached record or near record
high temperatures this past week. Sebring recorded the highest temperature
at 93 degrees, followed by Lake Alfred at 92 degrees. Rainfall continues to
be sparse and behind average in all areas. Growers continue to irrigate due
to lack of rain over the past several weeks. Most trees are in good condition
with maturity levels on all orange varieties running slightly above average.
Sugar to acid ratios are running just a little behind average for this time of
season due to higher acid levels. Early oranges are showing slight color
break in the southern region, while grapefruit are showing good color break
in many areas. Grove maintenance, includes pre-harvest mowing, herbicid-
ing, and late supplemental sulfur spraying.





Someone For Me
Someone simple someone sweet
Someone to love me would be so neat!
I don't ask for much,
Just someone with a true heart and trust.
I need a Love who will be faithful and true,
One that doesn't make my heart stay blue.
I need a Love that will stand by my side so proudly,
Who would call for in the dark so loudly.
Someone who will hold me when I cry deep sad tears,
Someone who wants to be with me and only me for years.
Someone who doesn't tell me lies,
Who truly listens to me when I cry.
Someone who offers me the moon, the stars
and the great big skies.
Someone who doesn't make promises that they know
they won't keep,
And someone who isn't afraid to take that great big leap!
Someone with a great sense of humor,
And someone who doesn't talk so much that they talk
your head into a tumor.
Someone who's not afraid to shed a tear,
'AAd who from time to time shows that they have some fears.
Someone who knows how to love and not be all in a rush,
Someone your body knows it can trust.
Someone who doesn't play games with your heart,
But lets you know where you stand right from the start.
Someone who sees no color, no age, no size,
But only what your heart and soul has to offer them inside.
Someone simple, someone sweet, someone to love me
would be so neat!

SINCE 1906


"A Family Tradition for 100 Years"
In 1906, my grandfather, William T. Robarts, founded ROBARTS FUNERAL PARLORS.
He set high standards for himself to provide superior service. This kind and gentle
man became known for his compassionate care and genuine concern for the fami-
lies he served.

These same standards were carried on by my father, Wilfrid T. Robarts, and now, as
our family commemorates 100 years of service, we still continue the tradition.

Over the years, our commitment to professionalism and compassionate care for
families has made our service distinctive.

Therefore, when you select ROBARTS FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, you can expect the
same distinctive service my family has been famous for since 1906.

We guarantee the finest care available at the lowest cost. You can rely upon our
reputation and my personal commitment to back it up.

6A The Herald-Advocate, October 26, 2006


Dear Editor:
Hello Hardee County, since this
is my first article for our local
newspaper. Please let me tell you a
little bit about myself. I am a long-
time Hardee County citizen and
attend the Bowling Green Church
of God.
I have a wonderful wife,
Stephanie, and three small children
who take up most of my time,
Zack, Caleb, and Hannah. I serve
on several capacities in my church
as well as in the community and
consider public service a privilege
and a sacred opportunity.
This led to Governor Jeb Bush
appointing me on May 2004 to the
Central Florida Regional Planning
Council.
I do apologize for not keeping in
contact with the citizens of Hardee
County. It has taken me awhile to
get familiar with some of the issues
Central Florida faces and decide
what I consider worth writing to the
public. I have since decided to
report on what is happening at the
regional level and let you decide
what you consider important. I will
attempt to provide some informa-
tion of what the council is.
Good or bad, Osceola and the
other counties included in the East
Central Florida regional Planning
consider themselves Central
Florida even though Hardee is part
of the Central Florida Regional
Planning Council along with
Highlands, Polk County. Polk
County is also included in the
Central Florida Regional Growth
Vision that is currently taking place
in "Central Florida."
I was privileged to attend a
Regional Leadership Forum hosted
by the Regional Board of Advisors
in Orlando this past week. Many
prominent business and govern-
ment leaders attended the forum,
and the main emphasis was a
regional growth vision,
The Central Florida Regional
Growth Vision is a 15-month
endeavor to engage citizens, com-
munity leaders, and elected offi-
cials throughout the Central Florida
Region in intensive "community
conversations" that will lead to a
50-year vision and policy frame-
work to guide future growth in
Central Florida as quoted by the
executive summary.
S After reading this, you might;
wonder: What does anything hap-
pening in Orlando matter to Hardee
County? Why is regional planning
important to a small county?
To answer the first question I
think it would be beneficial to look
at some examples of regional coop-
eration and planning that can be
seen with our local hospital, com-
munity college, and other services
that would require an extensive
amount of cost for each individual
county.


Dear Editor:
I am concerned that our county is
on a collision course with what will
be considered in the future a devel-
opment nightmare.
The Board of County Commis-
sioners will soon consider a request
for a special exception for a trailer
park for Florida Avenue and
Metheny Road. How could such a
request come before our Board of
County Commissioners for proper-
ty that is currently an orange
grove?
The process is quite simple -
just complete a two-page form and
go before the county Planning and
Zoning board and request a zoning
change. The Planning and Zoning
board has declined only one request
this year.
The request is heard by the
Board of County Commissioners,
which has the final authority over
all zoning changes. Once approved,
the rezoned property can developed
arbitrarily into any type of develop-
ment that is in compliance with the
proposed zoning.
Unfortunately this property at
Florida Avenue and Metheny Road
property was rezoned R-3 in March
2005 for single family site built
homes, not for a trailer park.
The only reason the Board of
County Commissioners is hearing a
special exception for the trailer
park is that the current Land
Development Regulations (LDR)
requires a special exception be
approved. That area of Florida
Avenue is currently overcrowded
with the traffic from North
Wauchula Elementary and the addi-


Florida Hospital has made some
major improvements in the technol-
ogy that handles its medical records
and its operations in the Heartland
Division. The costs for these pro-
jects would have been prohibitive
for a stand-alone hospital located in
our small county. The same goes
for our satellite community college
that is supported by the main cam-
pus in Avon Park.
The Regional Planning Council
also operates a transportation dis-
advantaged program for Hardee,.
Highlands, and Okeechobee coun-
ties. Since many of the specialized
medical facilities are located in
Highlands County this is directt
benefit for Hardee County.
As you can see, regional cooper-
ation can help our families, chil-
dren and elderly in a very real way.
Can we do anything more for the
citizens of this county? I am glad
you asked.
I believe we have a great oppor-
tunity for public transportation,
specifically for our high school
graduates who attend our commu-
nity college. The ability for the
working class and lower income
families to be able to find trans-
portation for their children to attend
college would greatly be improved
with a public transportation system.
Should Hardee County govern-
ment foot the bill for public trans-
portation? Absolutely not. The sys-
tem can be done through regional
cooperation and the private sector
along with community support.
This is just one example of region-
al solutions for local problems.
What is going on in Orlando will
be a prototype for how regional
visioning and coordination policies
are applied to the 2005 Growth
Management law. Knowing that
some state funding is being tied to
this legislation, I believe it would
be helpful to give some considera-
tion to how the plan is shaping up.
The bad taste of Post-Charlie
visioning that was conducted by
federal and statewide governments
may make some of us doubtful of
this process.
I have had an opportunity to talk
to some of the county commission-
ers about why there was nothing
done from all the visioning. They
all said it was a matter of funding
the projects.
This said, whoseresponsibility is
it to make sure visioning isn't a
waste of time and effort. I don't
think it's the county commission-
ers, city officials or any other gov-
ernment agencies.
I think it is up to the citizens of
this county to be impassioned by
the ideas that are generated and
hold the elected officials account-
able. If one or two ideas are
implanted I believe the process is
well worth it for the betterment of
our community.


tion of 286 trailers across from the
school will only multiply the traffic
congestion.
Many residents have sent letters
to the Board of County Commis-
sioners requesting that they .deny
the special exception. Many resi-
dents have called to speak directly
to-members of the Board of County
Commissioners, but some have
cited that speaking to residents on
this issue is restricted.
Possibly our Board of County
Commissioner's misunderstand the
Florida Sunshine Law -- which
states they cannot discuss a voting
issue with another board member,
but speaking to voters on issues is
in no way restricted.
I know the Board of County
Commissioners has recently hired a
planner. I am very hopeful that with
continued input from the communi-
ty the Board of County Commis-
sioners and the County staff will
ensure that all future development
will be distinctly compatible with
the surrounding neighborhoods. I
am not against growth, but devel-
opment without good planning is
not beneficial to the future of
Hardee County.
I urge all citizens who oppose a
trailer park on Florida Avenue to
have your voice be heard, because
we are in danger of the whole coun-
ty being rezoned without rhyme or
reason. The special exception is re-
scheduled for the November 16,
2006, Board of County Commis-
sioners meeting at 8:30 a.m.
Sincerely,
Kathleen Roehm
Wauchula


I will leave you with this quote
from the Mayor of Tavares:
"Visioning with implementation is
hallucination." May we not give up
on new ideas.

PAGE ONE


TO A FELINE

It was a troubled time when I heard your plaintive call,
Cracked the door, saw you gaunt and shivering in the chill
of beginning fall.
You brushed past my leg and onto my prized Persian
rug, looking back and pleading,
"Let me stay! Don't shoo me away! It's a friend we've
both been needing.

Oh, what an unwavering companion you've been!
Your soft, fleeting caress as you glide by my shin,
Your earnest, warm gaze from a fluffy maze, either
tender or reproving.
Napping the whole night in front of my bed without
once moving.

Morning. Not on the front or back porch or lawn.
It's now the whole night that you've been gone.
My load was lighter during your brief tenure.
The days without you will be much harder to endure.

Oh, there you come, racing toward me from afar!
No open displays. You have other ways. It 's more
subtle you are.

Sports Sense
& Nonsense
By Joan Seaman


Hey! Hey! Hey! It's the big week of the year for Hardee sports, when
the oldest rivalry in the state meets again. All Wildcat fans are urged to'
show up in Artadia for Friday night's game against the Bulldog. Hardee has:
a seven-game win streak on the line against the Bulldogs but, more impor-
tantly, needs the victory to be undisputed district champions and host early
rounds of the regional playoffs.
Hardee won at Haines City last week, scoring in the first eight seconds
of the game and several more times in the lopsided 35-6 victory, despite the
heroics of Hornet senior Kendall Berry, a Division I Ole Miss signee: It's
not the first time, Hardee shut down talented opposition. St. Petersburg
Catholic had a pair of South Carolina signees who could make no progress
against the Wildcat defense.
Congratulations to the Hardee swim teams. Hardee boys placed second
among the 11 teams in their district competition in Winter Haven last week,
while the girls placed six of the 12 teams in their division. All of the swim-
mers will go on to regional competition Saturday. Soph Tyler Robertson
earned a pair of district gold medals, with senior captain Casey Brutus pick-
ing up another. The duo joined with Chris Reid and Josh Rickett to win the
400 freestyle relay. Girls captain Kaitlyn Justice placed second in the 100
freestyle.
Cross country teams were at district competition in Tampa yesterday
(Wednesday). Senior Jose Gutierrez has the best chance to advance,
although the boys team could have with the successes it has had all season
when they stay focused on the job at hand. Hardee girls could also make
themselves known, with soph Edith Leon andsenior Maricela Galvan lead-
ing the pack. One can hardly wait eighth grader Vanessa Hernandez to get
to high school as she is already the best times of her high school teammates
and opponents as well.
The volleyball girls and golf boys and girls faced tough opposition in
their district playoffs and are all finished with their seasons. In boys golf,
senior Justin Painter had an outside chance by tying for the third position to
go to regionals, but lost out in a playoff hole.
The junior varsity football team stopped Sebring 34-7 to finish with a
, seven-game win streak to offset the opening game loss to Port Charlotte.
With a team that is mostly freshmen, Coach Rod Smith and company will
have quite a few back to continue to prepare for their varsity roles. Some
will go up to the varsity now.
Junior high softball finished up with a win over Hill-Gustat, capping a
.500 season with a 6-4 record. Losses came only to Sebring and DeSoto in
the seven-team conference which features playing each team twice.
Coaches Shari Knight and Beth Sasser will lose only five to the high school
level and have a good group next week.
There were no results available from junior high football last week.
The junior high Wildcats finished up the season at home on Tuesday
evening. Those results were not available at press time.
Fall sports are getting started. Boys soccer will be in a two-game pre-
season tournament in Port Charlotte next Tuesday and Thursday. Girls soc-
cer starts Tuesday at Frostproof. Both teams have road games until the
Wildcat football team no longer needs the Wildcat Stadium field.
Boys and girls basketball starts in mid-November and girls weightlift-
ing may get started before the Christmas holiday break.

In other action, the commission:
approved after public hear-

Hardee County Economic Devel-
opment District, commonly called
the Dependent Board, as it is no
longer needed. It was an interim
board to handle phosphate sever-
ance tax monies until the appointed
Independent District Board, offi-
cially the Hardee County Economic
Development Authority, was for-
mulated and began its tenure. Bill

approved a contract and
change order with low bidder
APAC Southeast and agreement
with the state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) for the SCRAP
(Small County Road Assistance
Program) funds for re-paving of
Sweetwater Road. The lowest bid
was $800,000 higher than the
monies DOT had allotted for the
project, so it was cut down. Instead
of the entire length of the road, the
work will only be done from U.S.

include all culvert replacements.
declined to support a propos-
al by Collier County to amend the

of members of the Florida Water

it would virtually assure Hardee
County would have no representa-
tion on that board, because the
more densely populated coastal
counties would outvote Hardee.

Of The Herald-Advocate
An agreement with Polk County
Will send about $8,000 a year here,
The Fire Protection Agreement
spells out who will answer fire calls
in the southern section of Polk
County abutting Hardee County.

Fire-Rescue Chief Mike Choate
told the Hardee County Commis-
sion at its meeting last week that
Hardee will automatically answer
call for aid up to the overpass a
mile north of the city limits. "Most
of those calls come in to us any-
way," said Choate of those Bowling
Green residences north of County
Line Road to the overpass,
Choate said this is the first agree-
ment between the two fire districts
other than mutual aid, which will
continue as it has always been. This
agreement, differs only in Hardee's
official acceptance of some Polk
territory for the year-long agree-
ment to pay Hardee', County $8,000
to take on this responsibility.
The agreement also makes
Hardee responsible for initial
fire/arson investigations in that
area, maintaining the scene and any
evidence until a state arson investi-
gator arrives.

fit to Hardee County, Polk County

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
THE SECRET OF DEPENDENCY
The great truth about living a life of devotion is that drawing near to
God is the answer to all problems. This simplest of all answers is the one
most often passed over.
We will try music to inspire us, good books to encourage us and fine
sermons by the best of preachers. But simply turning to God is chosen last.
We either feel that our problem is too small for Him or something we ought
to be able to handle ourselves.
It deeply offends human pride to admit that we can do absolutely noth-
ing in our own strength and need God continually.
"The flesh profits nothing" (John 6:63).
Can it really be true that we can do nothing of any value ourselves? We
ask this question because we hope that regular church attendance or more
Bible study or an hour a day of prayer will one day fit us to "stand on our
own two feet."
The truth is that the mature saint is one who has learned through hard
experience never to trust himself but to hide in God's hand in all situations.
He has learned that he is no match for he devil.
Devotional writer Jeanne Guyon writes, "When a little child is(sitting
on her mother's lap and imagines that she sees a monster lurking in the
shadows of the room, she does not run to fight it. She will hardly look at it,
but will quickly draw closer to her mother in full assurance that she is safe
in her mother's arms."
Is this childish behavior too elementary for us, or does the child in the
illustration show the highest kird of wisdom?

75 YEARS AGO
Wildcats Are Ready For Clear-
water Team: Clearwater, strong
football eleven from the West Coast
city, will battle the Wauchula
Wildcats tonight in what promises
to be the feature game of the sea-
son. The game will be played under
the lights on the local athletic field
and will get under way at 8 p.m. In
the game tonight Wauchula will be
seeking its fifth win of the season,
having won from Lake Wales,
Winter Haven, Sebring and
Sarasota.
The local eleven have not been
defeated since the 1929 season, and
have won 13 straight games since
being held to a scoreless tie with
Fort Pierce back in September of
1930. This season Wauchula has
scored 79 points to the opponents'
14. Clearwater also is a strong team
and has not been beaten this season.
They won from Winter Haven last
week by 20 to 6 and the week pre-
vious beat Tarpon Springs 41 to 6.

Free Motion Pictures Of Health
Are Coming: Free showings of
health motion pictures were
announced for Hardee County yes-
terday by County Superintendent of
Public Instruction J.B. Rooney. The
pictures are shown under the aus-
pices of the Florida State Board of
Health and a short talk will be given
with each showing. The showings
will be held at various places in the
county.
The pictures will show how dis-
ease is spread and how it can be
prevented. Dr. A.C. Hamblin, of
Tampa, a member of the state board
of health, stated he expects to be in
Wauchula when the pictures are
shown here Monday night week.
All are invited to see the pictures
when they are shown in their
respective communities.

Mr. Clemens brought to the Advo-
cate office.
All were large, fully developed,
and ready to grace tables of the
nation. The grapefruit cluster came
from the 65-acre grove belonging to
J.G. Lewis, of Savannah, which is
located three and a half miles north-
west of Wauchula. This grove is
rather young, but Mr. Clemens esti-
mates it will produce 5,000 boxes
of fruit this season.

Board Planning More 'Salt
Roads': The Hardee Board of
County Commissioners last week
purchased a distributor and a roller
for the construction of more "salt
roads." The purchase was made for
cash from theA.E. Finley Company
of Lakeland, the only bidders. The
price paid for the roller was $1,692
and $3,077 for the distributor.
The distributor will be used to
spread the salt and the roller for
packing after the salt and soil have
been thoroughly mixed. Several
weeks ago the county concluded
construction of. several miles of
"salt road:" on Heard Bridge Road
and a much shorter stretch in
Wauchula.

Jackets Blank Wildcats 13-0: The
Hardee High Wildcats were
blanked for the first time this year
last Friday night at Bartow as the
Yellow Jackets handily spanked the
Cats 13 to 0. The Wildcats feeble
offensive posed only one threat all
night long, and that came in the late
third quarter when the Cats mount-
ed a drive from their own 36 to the
Bartow 11 before losing the ball on
downs.
The Yellow Jackets scored late in
the first quarter on a 61-yard drive
that required only a few plays
including two long passes, the last
good for 25 yards and a touchdown
by Abner Coker. The kick for extra
point was good and the Jackets led
by 7 to 0. In the second quarter the
Wildcats had to fight hard to keep
the Jackets from scoring .oberts
recovered a Bartow fumble in the
Cat 6 to end one threat and on
another occasion the Cats intercept-
ed a Bartow pass on their own 36.

Hardee-Sarasota Divided Over
Water Authority: The county com-
missioners are deeply concerned
about the role Hardee County will
play in the creation of the Peace
River-Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority and the formation
of the interlocal agreement which
will be the guide for the proposed
six-county water authority. The
commissioner's representative on
the authority is John Roy Gough.
Gough presented a draft of the
proposed water authority to the
commissioners at last Thursday's
meeting. "It's done got hot and
heavy," reported Gough, referring
to a regulation he insisted be placed
in the agreement if Hardee County
is to sign. The paragraph, which
Gough succeeded in having placed
in, reads: "Neither the formation of
this Authority nor the use of the
Peace River by this Authority as a
source of potable supply shall serve
to trigger any efforts by the
Authority or'any of its members to
reclassify the Peace River as to
Quality."

Circus Scheduled To Arrive Here
Next Wednesday: It won't be long
now. The Hoxie Brothers Circus
will be rolling into Wauchula early

phants will pull the big top, the
largest round tent in the world, into
the air.
Performances will be given in the
afternoon and evening at 4 and 8:30
p.m. The acts in each one-hour and
40-minute show include a large
number of skilled and accom-
plished performers and trained ani-
mals recruited from throughout the
circus world. In one act, four circus
starlets perform acrobatics in har
mony on a Spanish web while
trapeze artist Miss Dunuska of
Czechoslovakia performs high
above the center ring.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An experienced Hardee soccer
squad takes the field on Tuesday.
Although still missing eight play-
ers still out in fall sports, the 2006
soccer Wildcats are senior laden
and enthusiastic.
"The boys have been doing vol-
untary conditioning and a lot play
in the men's league, so they are in
strong running shape and have their
skills honed and ready to get into
competition," said returning coach
SRon Kline, who led this team to the
: second round of post-season play-
offs last year.
Lost to graduation are Jose
Salvador and Tony LeCocq. But
hine of, last year's juniors are
expected to be big contributors.
Jose Alonso, Alberto "Chico"
Rodriguez and Pablo Anselmo are
the senior captains along with
junior..Luis Reyes.
Anselmo, classmate Andrew
Cisneros and soph Carlos Ramirez
are finishing up football. "We hope
they go a long way and wish them
well," commented Kline. Reyes,
and seniors Francisco "Paco"
Lozano, Jose Gutierrez are still run-
ning cross country and expected to
advance to regional competition
shortly.
Kline said practices are going so
well, the team usually closes with a
scrimmage. "I'm happy to see those
younger players I chose last year
have come out this fall and look so
much better. They are ready for
advance. Also, there are some good
rookies," said Kline, noting espe-
cially David Rodriguez who may
be goalie, and two other freshmen,
Martin Vega and Ivan Narvaez.
Soph Isaac Vasquez is still in
switiming regionals. Other new-
comers are junior Jorge Lopez, still
on the football field, junior Gerardo
Villegas, sophs Jorge Juarez, Hum-
berto Nolasco, Domingo Santiago
and Jesus Calvillo, and freshman
Murad Ottallah.
But Kline, will depend on his
most experienced players to resume


where they left off last season.
The seniors are Alonso,
Anselmo, Cisneros, Gutierrez,
Lozano, Rodriguez, Chris DeLa-
Rosa, Rafael Hilario and Johnny
Huron. Joining Reyes from the
junior class are Jose Castaneda and
Adam Juarez. Sophs are Roman
Alvarez, Elisio Diaz, Franciso
Rivera, Efrain Ruiz and Ramirez.
Running for 90 minutes is ex-
hausting, so reserves are expected
to pick up much of the slack and be
ready to step in at a moment's
notice, especially early in the sea-
son, when some are still in other

A Chicago physician, specializ-
ing in research on ulcers, an-
nounced his laboratories had to
abandon the use of dogs in their
experiments. They refused to get
tense and worry, and that's what
produces ulcers.
When ulcers were inflicted
upon a dog by artificial means,
he'd cure himself by refusing to be
bothered about anything.
What a lesson.
Two things cause worry. Fail-i
ure in the past and fear about the
future. You can't do anything)
about them.
But God can pardon your past
and give you peace and power for
the future.
"Don't worry about anything,,
says the Living Bible, "instead,
pray about everything."

Psalm 8
All is quiet. Concentration is thick. Making a Psalm a
good move takes careful consideration. Thursday
Life is like a game. Each of us is responsible for zr
our own moves, whether in response to another's or Eza :i-22
whether we make the first move. Whatever the
situation, we take action based on what we know of Neheiah 8-
the rules and what we have learned from
experience. Where can we turn for wisdom and guidance?
In Proverbs 2:6 it says, "For the Lord gives wisdom, and
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." We are
responsible for our own moves, but we are not alone. We can
turn to God for guidance.
Visit your house of worship this week and learn how God's
wisdom can help you in the game of lfe. It's your move.

lost tree of the last four meetings by a combined 14 points.

A Daily Thought

THURSDAY
Look, God is all-powerful. Who
is a teacher like Him? Who can
say what He does is absurd or
evil? Instead, 'glorify Him for His
mighty works for which He is so
famous.
Job 36:23-24 (TLB)

FRIDAY
God is so great that we cannot
begin to know Him. No one can
begin to understand eternity. He
draws up the water vapor and
distills it into rain, which the
skies pour down.
Job 36:26-28 (TLB)

SATURDAY
Can anyone really understand
the spreading of the clouds and
the thunders within? See how
He spreads the lightning around
Him, and blankets the top of the
mountains.
Job 36:29-30 (TLB)

SUNDAY
By His fantastic powers in
nature, He punishes or blesses
the people, giving them food in
abundance. He fills His hands
with lightning bolts. He hurls
each at its target. We feel His
presence in the thunder.
Job 36:31-33 (TLB)

MONDAY
My heart trembles at this. Listen,
listen to the thunder of His
voice. It rolls across the heav-
ens and His lightning flashes out
in every direction.
Job 37:1-3 (TLB)

TUESDAY
Afterward comes the roaring of
the thunder the tremendous
voice of His majesty. His voice is
glorious in the thunder. We can-
not comprehend the greatness
of His power.
Job 37:4-5 (TLB))

WEDNESDAY
For He directs the snow, the
showers and storms to fall upon
the earth. Man's work stops at
such a time, so that all men
everywhere may recognize His
power. The wild animals hide in
the rocks or in their dens.
Job 37:6-8 (TLB)

Holy Bible: (KJV) King James

Wildcats Sting Hornets


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat 11 took the
gameto the Haines City Hornets all
evening.
The 'Cats scored in the first eight
seconds of the game and never
looked back, taking a 28-0 halftime
lead and coasting to a 35-6 victory.
Twice the Wildcats started from
inside their five-yard line and
worked their way out of trouble.
The defense held Hornet quarter-
back Kendall Berry, a potential
signee with Division I Ole Miss, to
a net 90 yards on 18 carries and one
touchdown.
"It was a good win, hopefully a
precursor to the game against
DeSoto," said Hardee head coach
Derren Bryan. (See related story on
this week's DeSoto game in the
oldest rivalry in the state).
At Haines City, Hardee had first
crack at the ball and took full
advantage of it. Onel Virgile caught
the ball at the 26-yard line to get the
'Cats going. After an incomplete
pass, senior quarterback Weston
Palmer handed off to junior
Jayquan Gandy and cut off right
tackle to run untouched for 74
yards to the Haines City end zone.
With 11:42 left in the first quarter,
senior kicker Pablo Anselmo made
it a 7-0 game.
Haines City started its drive at
the 23. Deonte Fielder had a couple
of short runs and Rueben Rodgers
picked up a first down. After Berry
gained a half dozen yards on the
keeper, the Hornets went backward.
Logan Thomas and Johnny Ray
Harris stopped him on the next
keeper,:then sacked him for another
seven yards, forcing a punt.
The punt was downed at the.
Hardee 4-yard line. After a couple

short gains, Palmer hung on to the
ball for a, 15-yard run. Jimmy
Cimeus and Herman Patterson car-
ried the ball, but back-to-back
incomplete passes to Lisnell
Youyoute forced a punt. Shortly
Haines City punted it back.
This time, Hardee started at its

the last of the first quarter and early
in the second to tack more points
on the board. Passes to Youyoute

David Espinoza punt was too high
and Hardee's Gerardo Villegas
recovered the errant ball. A couple
of no-gainers and Palmer eluded
defenders long enough to loft a pic-
ture-perfect pass to Jermaine King
for the 11-yard TD. Anselmo made
it 21-0. midway through the second
period.
A sack by Thomas forced anoth-
er Haines City punt. On the second
play from scrimmage, Palmer cut
through the line, turned left and
raced 40 yards to score again.
Anselmo made the halftime score
28-0.
Although Berry had a 50-yard
kickoff return to start the second
half, penalties shortly forced a
punt. An penalty backed the
Hornets up five yards for a rekick,
which rolled dead at the Wildcat 1.
Gandy and Cimeus alternated
carries and got Hardee out to the
25. A pass to King netted 15 more
yards, but facing a 4th and 12 at the
35, Hardee was forced to punt.
Berry kept the ball for repeated
long gains. A pass to Rodgers in the
end zone was batted away by
Wiidcat senior drianild White.
SWheti the :i rnrets got to the
Wildcat 3, the quarter eided, ldav-
ing Berry with a pair of short runs
to get into the end zone 53 seconds
into the final period. The two-point
conversion try was stopped short of
the goal line. It was 28-6.
The teams exchanged posses-
sions once more. The next time
Hardee got its hands on the ball, it
took six minutes and 13 plays to go
95 yards downfield for the final
score of the game. A 30-yard run by
Patterson and another for 47-yards
were the big plays. Gandy got to
the 2-yard line on a 28-yard scam-
per, but it was Patterson who took
two tries to punch it in. Anselmo
made the final talJy 35-6.
For the game, Cimeus, Gandy
and Patterson each had nine carries.
Gandy had the most success with
121 yards and a touchdown. Palmer
had five carries for 54 yards and a
pair of scores, as well as six of 13
passes for 112 yards, one a TD
strike to King.

Hardee Looks For



Victory Over DeSoto


Teams Challenge For 86th Time


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In the 86th meeting between two
of the oldest squads in the state.
there's more than just pride on the
line.
The Wildcats hold their destiny
in their hands as they travel to
Arcadia Friday night for a game
that could very well decide the
2006 Class 3A-District 12 champi-
onship. DeSoto could play the role
of spoiler, and possibly force a
playoff for the right to advance to
post-season play.
"They play a good Wing T and
will throw everything at us. It's a
must-win for us to be district cham-
pion," said Wildcat head coach
Derren Bryan, whose job it will be
to keep Hardee focused for this big
game.
The Florida High School Athletic
Association mandates which week
district games can be played, so the
end-of-the-season DeSoto-flardee
encounter is no longer possible. If
Hardee wins Friday night, it will be
yet again an undefeated district
champion. If DeSoto wins. and
Avon Park beats Sebring. it could
completely upset the apple cart.
"We need to have our seniors
step up like they can. We had a lot
of guys have a good game on
defense at Haines City because
they stuck with the fundamentals
and we need them to do that again.
and better," said Hardee defensive
coordinator.
"We play on the road as well as
any team around. This group of
seniors knows what it means,"
added Bryan.
The 'Cats feature 22 seniors, led
by quarterback Weston Palmer,
receivers Jermaine King and
Lisnell Youyoute, running back
Herman Patterson and kicker Pablo
Anselmo on offense, defenders
Will Krause, Briant Shumard,
Johnny Ray Harris, Donald White
and Ricky Wiggins, and linemen
Jacob Benavides, Haceem Shweil.
Kyle Parrish, Cameron Durham
and Daniel "D.J." Robinson. Other
seniors in their final game of this
rivalry are Andrew Cisneros, Eric
Cobb, Eddie Hunt, Reggie Griz-
zard, Ian Durrance and Julian
Garcia.
DeSoto counters with its own 18
seniors, many of which were instru-
mental in the 49-14 win over
Sebring, just two weeks over a 14-
6 loss to Avon Park. Look for
quarterback Sheldon Shine to con,
nect with his junior brother Shay
Shine, or hand off to Tony Wallace
or to J.J. Peterson to try for anoth-
er 100-yard-plus game. Defens-
ively, Bryan Wyrick and Naser
Elabed could pose big problems as
well as a host of linemen.
Hardee is looking for its eighth
consecutive win in the longtime
rivalry. DeSoto last won 20-14 in
1998. Hardee holds a 52-28 advan-
tage in the age-old battle between
the two teams which began official

DeSoto wins: 28


corfbat in 1921. There have been'
five ties.
They actually played as
Wauchula and Arcadia teams in
1909 and 1917, before Hardee was
established as a county in 1921.
Two games were played in 1923,
with DeSoto winning both of them.
The 2005 Bulldogs threatened, but
were turned back 16-12 on some
Hardee heroics.
At game's end, the Walter F.
"Buck" Carlton trophy will be
awarded to the winning school.
Symbol of the long-standing com-
petition between these schools, the
Carlton trophy was first presented
in 1965 in honor the DeSoto man-
ager and avid fan who had died in
1964. The trophy was retired in
1972 after DeSoto had three con-
secutive wins, a stipulation of the
original presenter.
The trophy was reactivated in
1982 by Bruce and Sue Carlton and
won by Hardee in 1982, 1983 and
1984. DeSoto and Hardee alternat-

Swimmers Go I


By JOAN SEAMAN
S Of The Herald-Advocate
All of the Hardee Wildcat swim
S team is going to regional competi-
. tion.
Hardee swimmers garnered four
S first-place finishes and three sec-
ond-place finishes en route to earn-
S ing advancement to the Region 2
meet at Trinity Prep in Orlando late
this week.
At last week's Class 1A-District
5 meet at the Rowdy Gaines Pool in
Winter Haven boys finished sec-
ond overall with 280 points. Lake
Placid dominated the meet with a
boys total of 545. After Hardee
were Avon Park at 195, All Saints
of Winter Haven 193, Davenport
Ridge 185, Haines City 184, Lake-
land Christian 143, Frostproof 133,
Mulberry 105, Lake Wales 99 and
SSanta Fe Catholic 36.
Hardee girls placed sixth of the
12 teams in their division. Lakeland
S.. Christian won with 417 points, fol-
lowed by Lake Placid, 383, All
Saints' 236.50, Haven Christian,
200, Avon Park 161 and Hardee
159. Behind them were Santa Fe
129, Frostproof 114.50, Lake Wales
95, Davenport Ridge 58, Haines
City 56 and Mulberry 21.
With so many swimmers, there
were several preliminaries in some
events. Swimmers were divided by
seed, with no top seeds in the same
preliminaries. Any one swimmer
was only permitted to participate in
two individual and two relay
events.
With three districts in Region 2,
each can send the top eight in each
event on to the regionals, which are
limited to 24 in each event.
Hardee's top places came by
sophomore Tyler Robertson, who
won both the 50 freestyle and 100
freestyle. Senior Casey Brutus won


the 100 breaststroke and Hardee
won the 400 freestyle relay. The
boys placed second in the 200 med-
ley relay and Brutus placed second
in the 200 freestyle. For the Hardee
girls, captain Kaitlyn Justice placed
second in the 100 freestyle.
The swimmers survived a gruel-
ing 14-hour day in last Tuesday's
district meet, with the first prelimi-
nary at 8 a.m. and the final event at
8 p.m. Most of them had been up
since 6 a.m., said proud coach Dick
Daggett, who most of his swim-
mers qualify to go ahead or as an
alternate.
In the first event of the day, the
200 medley relay, Hardee girls
moved from sixth in the preliminar-
ies to fifth in the finals. Sophs
Rebecca Quinones, Brittany
Wiggins and Alex White and fresh-
man Chelsea Goolsby finished in
2:31.86 and qualified for regionals.
For the boys, it was a move from
third place to second in tle;-200
medley relay, shaving 2.23 seconds
off their time. It was Brutus,
Robertson, and sophs Chris and
Joe Porter finishing at 2:03.54.
None of the Hardee girls quali-
fied for the finals in the 200.
freestyle. In the boys division,
Hardee placed second, third and
fifth, with Brutus, Reid and Josh
Rickett. All three automatically
advance.
No Hardee girls were in the 200
individual medley finals, but for the
boys Sean McCandless made the
finals, where he placed 13th over-
all.
Hardee girls were noticed in the
50 freestyle, where Justice dropped
her time from 29.22 in the prelims
to 29.11 in the finals to place
fourth. Classmate Courtney Nich-
olson placed 10th.
Robertson picked up his first win

in the 50 freestyle, cutting his pre-
lim time of 24.50 to 24.04 for the
best of the day.
In the diving, Hardee had no girls
in competition, but got fourth-place
from Bradley Adcox and sixth from
Sheldon Hartman.
For the 100 butterfly, White was
10th for the girls and Porter placed
eighth from the boys.
Justice moved from third in the
preliminaries to second overall in
the 100 freestyle. She dropped her
time from 1:03.87 to 1:03.37 to
move ahead of Danielle Rivers of
Lake Placid. Nicholson came in
11th.
No Hardee girls were in the top
eight in the 50 freestyle. Robertson
took another medal when he shaved
45 hundredths of a second off his
best time for a finish at 54:06. Reid
placed llth.
Hardee swimmers did not place
in the top eight in the 500 freestyle.
In the 200'freestyle relay, it'was
Jahna Davis, Katie Jernigan,
Nicholson and Justice combining
for a fifth-place finish. Porter,
Rickett, Dusty Spears and Isaac
Vasquez worked for a seventh-
place finish in the boys division in
that event.
For the 100 backstroke, neither
Hardee girls nor boys placed in the
top 10.
Wiggins just missed with a ninth-
place finish in the 100 breaststroke.
Brutus picked up his first-place
medal in this event, slicing his
1:07.82 in the preliminaries to
1:06.19 in the finals. Porter placed
10th.
In the final event, Hardee girls,
Jernigan, Justice, Nicholson and
Jahna Davis placed fifth in the 400
freestyle relay.
Hardee boys aced the final event,
with Rickett, Reid, Robertson and
Brutus coming in at 3:54.01, almost
six seconds against second-place
Lake Placid.
Other Hardee swimmers con-
tributing to the successful day are
Jacob Willias and Murad Ottallah
for the boys and Michelle Beck,
Yvette Chavez, Samantha Cowart,
Juliann Davis, Sarah Ezelle,
Heather Kouns, Ana Moric,
Katiana Pesquera, Noelia Pesquera
and Alicia Revell.
"They all contributed all season
and they all get to go," said
Daggett.

HOPES AND DREAMS AND WISHES
What does the future hold for you and your children?
As a parent I wondered about this on a regular basis. The possibilities
are endless, limited only by your imagination. There are opportunities avail-
able around every corner, and with each decision and choice you make, you
prepare for those opportunities.
The following essay by Gregory Garza, of Hardee Junior High School,
is evidence that many of our youth today are hoping, dreaming and planning
for the future. The challenge for adults is to be available to help them stay
focused on their goals and dreams, and to teach them how to make good
choices and decisions. High aspirations and the desire to make the world a
better place are values that should be nurtured and encouraged in our young-
sters.
Here is Gregory's essay:
MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
By Gregory Garza
I plan to stay drug free in my future because I believe that those who
choose to go down the dark path will not see the bright path and all of its
glorious rewards.
I will grow up and use my scholarship to get a degree in business man-
agement so that I may get into a money making business and use my wealth
to help the unfortunate change their lives for their greater good. Doing this
will help them build up their confidence and eliminate the use of drugs.
Drug use is never in a solution to resolving problems. I plan to make a dif-
ference in this world.
Did you know that smoking pollutes the air which we breathe? It has
been predicted that much of this is the cause of our natural disasters. I want
to help stop this because I would be able to save millions of people's lives
every year. I want to be a good role model to children and adults.
In conclusion, I plan to stay drug free. I will be able to make the world
a better place not only for me but for everybody else.

The Hardee Junior School soft-
ball squad closed out its season last
Thursday with a victory.
The junior Lady 'Cats finished
the season with a 6-4 record, losing
only to DeSoto and Sebring in the
six-school Heartland Conference.
"I'm just proud of them overall
for how hard they worked. Six and
four is a winning record, so you
have to be proud of that. Several of
the girls are now playing travel
ball, and that will make a tremen-
dous improvement in their game. I
hope all the girls will be playing
city league ball in the spring. I real-
ly think girls' softball in Hardee
County is getting better and better
and I hope the community will con-
tinue to support them,' said Coach'
Shari Knight, who was assisted by
Beth Sasser.
In the final week, Hardee split
games.
Last Tuesday, Hardee hosted
DeSoto, but came out on the short
end of a shutout, 11-0, having a
hard time with DeSoto pitching.
The junior Lady Bulldogs used an
eight-run fourth inning to cement


at 25:50.
Other Hardee girls contributing
to the second-place finish were
Mandy Cornelius, Laura Galvan,
Daisy Escoto, Guadalupe Flores
and Sara Lopez.
Eighth grader Vanessa Hernan-
dez continued in record-breaking
times in the JV race, coming to the
wire at 23:17.
Hardee boys were again paced by
senior Jose Gutierrez, to the finish
at 17:32. Junior brother Gilberto

the win.
It was different on Thursday at
Hill-Gustat Middle School in Se-
bring, when Hardee won 21-9.
Hardee started slowly, plating a
pair of runs in the top of the first
inning. Elvira Servin and Amanda
McNabb smacked back-to-back
singles. With one away, Courtney
Chason added a single. A walk and
hit batter moved runners along until
a fielder's choice forced Chason
out at home. Hill-Gustat got its
only lead of the game with a trio of
tallies in the home half of inning
one on a combination of Walks and
hits.
Hardee cleared the bases and
kept running in the second stanza,
sending 16 batters to the plate and
bringing 13 of them around to
score. Emma Marshall, McNabb,
Kate Krause and Chason each
crossed home plate twice and
Servin, Taylor Bolin, Sabrina
Hernandez, Courtney Parks and
Emily Starratt chipped in with solo
scores. Both Servin and McNabb
had twin hits and Chason homered
during the flurry, with Hardee lead-
ing 15-3.

JV End On Winning Note

th


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Hes~d-Advocate
"It's a great way to end the sea-
son."
Head coach Rod Smith was elat-
ed at his team's final victory in last
week's home game against Se-
bring. Over the season, the junior
'Cats outscored opponents 195-38,
including four straight shutouts
leading up to the season finale.
If it wasn't for the opening game
27-14 loss to Port Charlotte, the
difference would have been more
substantial. As it was, Hardee went
on to win all the other games, most
by a substantial margin.
"We lost that first game and I
wish we could play it over. The
kids really came on, bought into
our system and learned to trust their
coaches and what we were teaching
them. It's a difficult enough adjust-
ment for ninth graders to the high
school experience and come on so
well," continued Smith,
A communication breakdown on
coverage allowed Sebring's only
score in last week's game, said
Smith, who expressed his apprecia-
tion to the parents, kids and coach-
es for "quite a season, coming back
to win seven in a row."
Co-coaches were Todd Bolin,
Dan Duke, Barry White and James
Carpenter, with Rodney Spinks as
manager.
Hardee had to overcome five
fumbles to steal this win from
Sebring, which gave up four inter-
ceptions, their quarterback only 5-
of-,12 for 30 yards. The junior
Streaks gained 139 yards on 23 car-
ries for a total offense of 169 yards.
In contrast, Wildcat freshman
quarterback Ezayi Youyoute went
3-for-5 for 46 yards. On the ground,
the 'Cats gained 239 yards on 29
carries, making a total offense of
285. yards. Youyoute scored twice,'
Kelsheem White added another and
the defense had a pair of tallies, a
safety and an interception run-back
for a TD.
The game began with a Sebring
22-yard kickoff return. A pair of
penalties and incomplete passes
and a key tackle by Jonathan Kelly
stopped the Streaks. A high snap for
the punt went into the end zone for
a safety.
The Hardee offense had its turn
next, starting at the Streak 44 after
a. good runback by Marvin Cook.
White gained five and Youyoute
added five. more. Antjuan Jones got

a first down, and Youyoute faked
the handoffs and scampered over
right tackle for the 21-yard TD. A
bad snap nullified the conversion
kick attempt.
Carson Davis stopped the
Sebring runback at its 20. After no-
gainers on the run and pass,
Youyoute intercepted another Blue
Streak pass attempt and ran it back
25 yards for the score. The Jesus
Aguirre kick made it a 15-0 game
with over eight minutes still left in
the opening quarter.
Hardee would add yet another
tally in the first period. After-
Sebring went three and out, Hardee
took the punt back to midfield.
White broke a pair of tackles for a
23-yard gain. Jones ran twice for
good gains, and he and White ran
for five yards apiece. Finally, White
went over the goal line. A bad snap
stopped the kick. It was 21-0.
Sebring ate up the rest up the first
period and well into the second
stanza before giving up the ball on
downs. Passes and runs got Hardee
going, until a fumble gave the ball
to Sebring. The Streaks took advan-
tage with a seven-play, 58-yard
drive, which ended with a 25-yard
pass for the touchdown. The PAT
kick was good, cutting Hardee's
lead to 21-7.
Michael McTaw returned the
kickoff to get Hardee going.
Hardee fumbled the ball and
Sebring returned it on an intercep-
tion as the first half came to a close.
McTaw took the second-half
kickoff back 59 yards to put the
'Cats in good position. It took
Hardee only four plays for
Youyoute to find Josh Rodgers
open in the end zone for the 14-
yard TD throw. The Aguirre kick
made it 28-7.
Sebring managed-one first down
on its next series before being.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well Football Fans, it is the last weekend of October. There are a few
significant games this weekend but November is the month that champi-
onships are won. The Big East and Big 10 especially are looking toward
key games between West Virginia and Loiisville, and Ohio State and
Michigan respectively. The ACC and SEC will settle theirs in
Championship Games.
Miami suspended 13 players for the Duke game but all will return this
week. The school's president would not look at the film of the altercation
with FIU instead sidestepping the problem with the press.Remember when
South Carolina and Clemson had a. similar problem and both schools
refused to allow their teams to attend bowl games? Don't expect that to hap-
pen with Miami this time.
Florida State losing to Boston College has to be the low point in FSU
modern history. The Eagles though have benefited from moving to the ACC
where they can be more competitive. They will finish better than their usual
fifth place when they competed in the Big East. One has to wonder how-
long the slide will last until FSU officials say that's enough?
The Big East is enjoying a great season.West Virginia's Steve Slaton
and Rutgers' Ray Rice are two of the top five backs in the nation while West
Virginia's Pat White and Louisville's Brian Brohm are two of the top five
in America. With two Top 10 teams and an unbeaten Rutgers at 16th,
tle0Big East has erased any negative doubts about the strength of the con-
ference.
To demonstrate the fallacy of polls in college football, consider that
Tennessee is ranked ahead of Florida in the AP Poll. Both are 6-1. Florida
beat Tennessee. Go figure. Look for the Gators to lay a 30 point whipping
on the Dawgs this weekend.
Michigan State came from 38-3 down to Northwestern to win 41-38. It
was the greatest comeback in college football history. Hats off to the
Spartans.
The Bucs win on a 62-yard field goal at the buzzer. I still remember
seeing Tom Dempsey kick the 63-yarder back in 1963.Wow, that was a long
time ago.,
USF had its shot at Sunday Prime Time on ESPN but the Cincy Bearcat


defense stole the night from the Bulls. USF needs one more win to be bowl
eligible. Pitt, Louisville and West Virginia make that a tough road. Maybe
Syracuse at home will be the one? Maybe an upset of Pitt in Tampa instead?

Now let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare:
1. Florida vs. Georgia Remember when this used to be a big deal?
Truth is the series is so one-sided in favor of UF it is a laugher. UGA beat
Mississippi State by 3 points at home. The Gators should beat the Dawgs
by 25 or 30. It will be a dawg day afternoon for UGA. Florida 35 Georgia
10.
2. FSU at Maryland Good Grief, Charlie Brown, the Noles lost to
Boston College. Now, Maryland will become bowl eligible with this win
over FSU. Maryland 34 FSU 23.
3. Memphis at Marshall Thundering Herd appears to have turned
the corner with a confidence win on the road at UAB. Memphis has only
one win over a 1-AA team. Ahmad Bradshaw had over 200 yards rushing
this week and should add to that against the Tigers. He needs 117 to reach
1,000 for the season. Marshall 38 Memphis 17.
4. Syracuse at Cincinnati These Big East teams may not be going
to a bowl but both have shown much improvement over 2005. This game
should be a battle for positioning in the Big East standings. Cincy 17
Syracuse 13.
5. Vanderbilt at Duke The Battle of the SATs should result in a win
for the.SEC team. Vandy 33 Duke 13.
6. UCF at Houston Kevin Kolb should have a great day for the
Cougars passing. The Knights have one win against a 1-A team and that
was a gift from Marshall. Houston in a blowout. Houston 44 UCF 13.
.7. Kentucky at Mississippi State UK could fall victim to the
Bulldogs.if the close loss to UGA was not a fluke. The UK wins have not
been against any real powers either. Mississippi State 31 UK 27.
8. Auburn at Ole Miss Tigers should have no trouble from the
Rebels. Auburn 34 Ole Miss,10.
9. Tennessee at SouthCarolina Spurrier has a chance for a quality
win in the SEC race. The Vols better beware but from here it looks like a
close win for the Tennessee bunch. UT 24 USC 20.
10. Miami at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets should be fired up to
make amends for the Clemson loss.Of course, the Canes are coming off
their big.upset of Duke too. Georgia Tech 27 Miami 13.
1. 'FIU at Alabama They will probably lose to the Tide but at least


FIU will not be in a free-for-all with the Tide players defending their house.
Alabama 33 FIU 7.
12. UConn at Rutgers Huskies had a good game plan to contain
West Virginia's great run game. Slaton had only 15 yards on 9 carries in the
first half before exploding in the second half. Now, UConn must deal with
Rice and Leonard with their 106th-ranked run defense. Rutgers 35 UConn
13.
13. Notre Dame at Navy Irish won't need their luck in this one;
Notre Dame 38 Navy 10.
14. Minnesota at Ohio State Minnesota beat North Dakota State
10-9. Amazing how weak the Big 10 is except for two teams. The talking
heads on ESPN question the strength of schedule of Big East teams like
West Virginia, Louisville or Rutgers, all of whom could play for the top
spot in the Big 10. Ohio State 60 Minnesota 0.
15. Southern Cal at Oregon St. Trojans should trap the Beavers and
take their hides easily. USC 34 Oregon State 13.
16. Arizona at Green Bay Brett gets it done at home. Pack 24

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger


FESTIVAL FUN!
Highlands Hammock State Park will host the 21st annual Civilian Con-
servation Corps Festival on Nov. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Talk about variety! There will be arts, crafts, animal encounters, enter-
tainment, snacks, produce, pioneer demonstrations and even some cooking
lessons.
This great festival gets an early start with the Highlands County Square
Dancers showing off their moves at 9, followed by the Tennessee Kountry
Kouple. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the 12- piece G.I. Joe Swing Band will per-
form Big Band music of the '30s and '40s.
Craft vendors and artisans will provide a wide variety of handmade
crafts. Look for homemade jams and jellies, woodcrafts, paintings, pottery,
jewelry, floral arrangements, stained glass, Red Hat favorites and much
more. You can also buy local fruits, vegetables, herbs and native plants.
Wrede's Wildlife and Woodland Wonders are bringing native wildlife,
while Croc Encounters of Tampa provides close encounters with alligators,
crocodiles and other reptiles. Archbold Biological Station joins us with sev-
eral snakes and ecology activities as well. Lakeside Stables pony rides will
be available, and Highlands County Fire Prevention's Fire Safety House
and robot, Pluggy, will help kids learn fire-safety skills.
Step back in time with The Time Travelers and their pre-1840 demon-
stration of life as early pioneers. Try their tomahawk throw or learn some
dutch-oven cooking skills with the Cracker Trail Dutch-Oven Cooking
Society.
Park staff will provide hayrides and tram rides through the park. Get
your $2 tickets at the Friends of Highlands Hammock tent. Peace River
Electric Cooperative's Electric Junction Safety City will be here, too.
Don't forget to bring a hearty appetite for the Hammock Inn's great
variety of festival foods. Goodies include breakfast sandwiches, biscuits
and gravy, and pastries from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Hot dogs, chili dogs, Frito pies,
sausage, and smoked pork sandwiches as well as smoked pork dinners and
turkey legs are all planned for this event. Sweets include wild-orange pie
and ice cream, hot apple dumplings, and blackberry cobbler. Plan to load
up on some goodies and relax while you eat and enjoy the musical enter-
tainment.
This annual CCC Festival is held to honor the men of the Civilian
Conservation Corps, a civilian workforce established by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt in 1933. Over three million men were put to work in every
state of the Union. They helped build this park.
Enrollees often were fondly referred to as Tree Troopers, Soil Soldiers
and the Colossal College of Calluses. They reforested wastelands, devel-
oped recreational facilities, worked in erosion control and fire fighting and
built dams, bridges and roadways during the grips of the Great Depression.
Come revisit history with us during this fun event. The only thing bet-
ter than coming for the day is coming for the weekend! A few campsites are
still available by contacting Reserve America at 800-326-3521 or online at
www.ReserveAmerica.com. For more information on the festival, contact

Soccer Girls



Get Started


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
As the fall moves toward winter,
girls soccer gets ready to take the
place of volleyball.
Returning girls coach Rob Beatty
has been working with his team in
preparation for the season opener at
Frostproof on Tuesday. Then comes
Lake Placid next Thursday before
moving into the district competi-
tion of Sebring, Avon Park, Braden
River, DeSoto and Palmetto.
"We got most of last year's team
back and are starting in much better
shape this year," said the coach,
whose 2005 team lost 1-0 to
DeSoto in the final moments of the
playoffs last spring. He lost then
seniors Karissa Manchester,
Roxana Torres, Heather McKinney,
Azucena Miranda and Vanessa
Hollon to graduation.
"We've been able to replace
them with some really solid girls,"
said Beatty. "We're starting with


probably our strongest opponent of''
the season in Frostproof, so I'm'
going to use the opportunity to see "
all of the players in action. It's a
non-district game. But, I expect we '
will be very competitive in the dis-
trict this year," he added.
Returning are seniors Christina "
Badillo, Cynthia Briseno, Romona"''
Campos, Mandy Cornelius, Ashley
Islas and Melissa Hollon, along
with juniors Esmeralda Martinez
and Luisa Gonzalez, and sophs.
Marce Ramirez, Esna Francisco'*'
and Daisy Escoto.
Coming out for the sport are
Maggie Rodriguez, sophs Lucy..-..
Ruiz, Nancy Ramirez and Diana
Leal and frosh Sara Lopez, Abigail
Hernandez, Kristina Garcia, Erika
,Felix and Vicky Contreras.

Fish Busters Bulletin
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission


"Ilnthis world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
:.Unfortunately, Benjamin Franklin was pretty much on target regarding
the .ertainty of taxes. Though an argument could be made about other cer-
tainties in life, his point was that cont-',uting to our government through
the paymentt of taxes cannot be avoideL.
SFor our local governments, property taxes are one of the major rev-
enue sources contributing to the public services in our community.
::In order to collect these property taxes, there are three separate gov-
ern tient entities that have a unique and distinct role in producing that "cer-
tai'n' tax bill that each property owner receives in November. First, the
projierty appraiser annually appraises all property within the county at mar-
ket value as of Jan. 1 in accordance with Florida Law and Department of
Revenue guidelines. This year "market value" reached record highs, and
property owners without the advantage of the "Save Our Homes" home-
steadt benefit or an agricultural classification will definitely feel the effects
whn they receive their bills.
:After the values have been established, the taxing authorities set their
mileage rates (tax rate) based on the amount of tax dollars necessary to fund
their annual budgets. The Truth In Millage notice that each property owner
received in August is sent out to put each property owner on notice of the
taxable value and proposed taxes for the upcoming year. The notice also
includes Special Assessment Fees that are not related to the property value,
for services such as garbage collection and disposal and fire services.
Following the establishment of the value and tax rates, our tax collec-
tor, Zee Smith, calculates the amount of taxes due in preparation for send-
ing out tax bills in November and begins collection of the taxes levied. Tax
bills paid prior to the month of March receive the following discounts:
November, four percent; December, three percent; January, two percent;
and February, one percent.
Any questions pertaining to the payment of taxes can be directed to the
Tax Collector's Office.
If you did not receive a TRIM notice this year, it is very important that
you contact our office to confirm or correct your mailing address. If we do
not have your correct mailing address, then you will not receive a tax bill
and unpaid taxes will be subject to delinquency fees.
When you stop by the Tax Collector's Office to pay your taxes, step
across the hall to see us. We're always anxious to assist you with your prop-
erty needs!
Don't forget to visit our Web site at www.hardeepa.net. Do a search
and find an aerial photo of your property.

THE MOON MAKES THE FISH BITE
The best time to go freshwater fishing, for me. is whenever I get a
chance.
But if your schedule is flexible and you want to be a bit more scientif-
ic about it, pay attention to the moon. Many fish and game activity calen-
dars you see in news media and elsewhere are based on the Solunar Theory.
developed by John Alden Knight.
In 1926, Knight considered some folklore he picked up while fishing
in Florida and decided to evaluate 33 factors that might influence fresh or
saltwater fishes to be more active periodically. Three of them seemed to
merit further examination: sunrises/sunsets, moon phases and tides.
From that, the avid fly fisherman created the Solunar Theory, which he
named for Sol, the Roman sin god, and Luna, the Roman goddess who per-
sonified the moon.
Anglers already knew tides were an important factor in saltwater fish-
ing success, and recognized the connection between tides and moon phas-
es. Meanwhile, American Indians, and other groups that depended on hunt-
ing and fishing for survival, realized animals were more active during full
and new moons. Knight speculated the relationship between the sun and
moon, rather than tidal stages, might provide a way to predict fishing suc-
cess.
Knight determined that midway between when the moon rose and set.



Free Training Offered

For Construction Jobs


Florida reBuilds is a new pro-
gram offering free training in con-
struction-industry trades for people
in Hardee and neighboring coun-
ties. Classes are available now.
The Florida reBuilds Program is
a joint partnership of Heartland
Workforce, South Florida Com-
munity College and local construc-
tion companies to recruit, train and
employ skilled workers.
"The residential and commercial
construction industry has been, and
will continue to be, a powerful
force for economic growth and
high-wage jobs in DeSoto, Hardee
and Highlands counties," said
Roger Hood, executive director of
Heartland Workforce. "Designed to
fill much-needed positions in our
local construction industry, this no-
cost program will provide training,
incentives and one-on-one place-
ment assistance to over 120 individ-
uals who wish to train for one of
seven entry-level construction
trades."
Seven trades are available to
interested participants, including:
carpenter, carpenter's helper, dry-
wall and ceiling tile installer, roofer,
roofer's helper, painter, and con-
_struction laborer. These trades have.
an average pay of $9-15 an hour.
"We are looking for unemployed
and underemployed workers, work-
ers dislocated by storm activities,
veterans and individuals seeking a
career change," said Hood. "Even
non-traditional candidates like ex-
offenders, high-school dropouts,
youth aging out of foster care and
homeless have the same opportuni-
ties for no-cost training, job place-
ment assistance and an impressive
starting salary."
With classes already under way,
open enrollment will continue
through June 2007.


Training is held at the South
Florida Community College cam-
pus in Lake Placid. Classes are
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5
p.m., with instruction lasting up to
five weeks.
Candidates can enroll by contact-
ing Ben Carter at the Heartland
Workforce Highlands One-Stop
Career Center, 2730 U.S. 27 N.,

and vice-veisa, fishing activity peaked. He coined the phrases "major
Solunar periods" and "minor Solunar periods" to describe them. These peri-
ods of greatest animal activity not only fish last 90 minutes to three
hours, depending on the moon's relationship to the sun, its distance from
Earth and the sun's angle from the equator.
In 1936, Knight published the first Solunar Tables based on this infor-
mation. However, we now know that, to be accurate, the precise times from
each table must consider the geographic location and be adjusted for day-
light saving time, when appropriate. You can approximate these times by
adding six hours to the rise and set times for the moon. (See
MyFWC.com/Fishing/Schedule/LunarCalculator.html for an online calcu-
lator for any date and location.)
The intensity of Solunar periods' impact varies according to the posi-
tion of the moon, its distance from Earth and the angle of the moon above
or below the equator. New moons provide maximum impact when the sun
and moon are traveling in rhythm with their forces combined. During a full
moon, they are opposite one another, with one or the other nearly always
above the horizon, and they provide a strong secondary peak. Then the
intensity tapers off to a minimum during the moon's third quarter. June has
the greatest combined Solunar influence.
You should also consider local weather patterns. Fish and wildlife have
an innate ability to predict weather and react accordingly. Barometric
changes, especially a downward trend, often can turn fishing off.
Conversely, sometimes an approaching cold front seems to make fish go
into a feeding frenzy to beat the bad weather. Typically, if the barometer is
steady or rising and the air temperature is significantly higher than the
water temperature, a stronger response to the Solunar periods is likely, but
immediately following a cold front, some fish are rather lethargic.
Temperature is also associated with spawning times and can be a key fac-
tor in the seasonal patterns of fish behavior.
A natural day for fish, and many other animal species, revolves around
a twice-daily "biological clock" that appears to coincide with lunar time. It
is based on the time it takes the moon to complete one rotation of the Earth,
an average of 24 hours and 53 minutes. This explains why ocean tides are
about an hour later each day and why most fish, freshwater species includ-
ed, will feed up to an hour later each day. Regardless of whether species are
most active in daytime or night, sunrise and sunset are important to their
movements and feeding.
So when you put it all together, the odds are if you go fishing six hours
after the moon rises or sets, and that time coincides with sunrise during a
new moon, while the barometer is rising, the water levels are adequate,
water quality is good, there are plenty of big hungry fish looking for food
and not too many big hungry mosquitoes, you've got the optimum fishing
time.
Or if all this confuses you as much as it does me, then remember: The
best time to go fishing' ... is whenever you can!
