Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association


SHARING DISEASE-MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCES
All growers have a least one thing in common: They are all battling an
unprecedented number of pest and diseases in their groves.
As more and more growers are impacted by the presence of Citrus
Canker in their groves, the need for information sharing is more important
than ever. Added to the concerns over Citrus Canker is a concern Greening
is also widespread and could be in many, or even most, groves in the state.
Without a state or federal program for either disease, growers are taking the
initiative to help themselves, trying to suppress both diseases
To assist in this initiative, the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers
Association has been covering some of these disease trails in member
groves, then sharing the information amongst its membership.
First, the association covered some trials in the association newsletter.
This information sparked a thirst for more information. Second, the associ-
ation hosted a grower meeting. The meeting featured a panel of growers
who explained their grove and disease situations to the other growers,
including answering questions from other growers. They weren't the only
growers to share, though. Growers in the audience were also forthcoming
with their experiences, making the meeting a true round-table discussion.
The third aspect of this project has taken shape in the form of a Web
site for growers to individually share information and ask questions of other
growers. The site allows growers to communicate on a statewide basis, and
should improve the timeliness of communications. The Peace River Valley
Citrus Growers Association worked with Jerry Ne\\ in,.president of the
Florida Citrus Production Managers Association, and Gary Cooper, of
Southeast AgNet, to design a state\ ide site for gro wers to access informa-
tion, share their experiences and ask questions of other growers.
The "Grower Trials"'site is currently open on Southeast AgNet's Web
site, www.agnetonline.com. Once at the site, growers can click on "Gro\wer
Trials" under the heading of."Citrus" on the right side of the page. The site
offers text, audio and % isual aids for growers..
Growers are also encouraged to share their experiences. Submissions
" ill be carefully\ screened in order to protect users, and pieent false infor-
mation from being released to gro\ ers. The screening process ill also pre-
%ent outside individuals from crowding the boards \ ith unnecessary post-
ings and information.

Southeast AgNet has placed these simple submission instructions on
their site:
1. Send your testimonial in an e-mail, or attached to an e-mail in a
word document format to growertrials@southeastagnet.com.
2. In the subject lind of the e-mail, also include the words "grower tri7
als."
3. Include your name, your grove or business name, address and
phone number with each submission, for verification or clarification purr
poses if necessary. Contact information will be withheld upon request, but
author's name and city will appear with each message or testimonial pub-
lished.
Scientific methods of researching diseases require years of study in
controlled environments. Growers are'faced with this dilemma now and
cannot wait for normal scientific research to be completed. Sharing of
information in real-life situations can make a difference to the industry.
Growers sharing their experiences, both successes and failures, could
save another grower some time or money. As diseases and pests spread,
working together is mandatory for the welfare of the Florida citrus indus-
try. ,
Growers should also be aware Compliance Agreements are still
required for harvesting all types of citrus fruit. If you have not completed
your annual compliance agreement and received your new compliance
number for this year's harvest, please contact your local Citrus Canker
Eradication Program office immediately. It can help \ou get the needed
paperwork completed and have you ready for harvest in no time.
Processors are checking these numbers as loads come into the plant.
Failure of growers to have an updated compliance number will mean rejec-
tion of the fruit upon arrival at the processing plant.

Linda Lou Ranch Hosts State


Citrus Officials Local Growers


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
J.A. and Linda Clark on Oct. 27
hosted a group of about 30 citrus
growers and officials at their Linda
Lou Ranch on Peace Rier south of
Zolfo Springs.
Mike Sparks, executive director
of Florida Citrus Mutual, said the
U.S. government in the past tvo or
three years has provided Florida
citrus growers with $530 million in
canker funds and $370 million for
hurricane damages to their groves.
"It took about 60 years to gener-
ate a billion dollars in growers'
taxes. Florida Citrus Mut'ual is
financially rock solid. The reserves
are down but they will rebuild."
Sparks said Mutual last year.
approved 4 1/2 cents a box tax on
citrus for their members. Mutual
has a $3 million budget, and this
year's Florida orange crop is esti-
mated at 135 million boxes.
"This year the Mutual board
approved a tax of 4 cents a box.
The board wanted a tax of 3 1/2
cents a box. but approved 4 cents
due to the smaller crop. That is still
a half-cent less than last \ear." he
said.
The board of Florida Department
of Citrus voted 10- 1 for tlhAFDOC
to collect the box taxes for Mutual
through the processors and pack-
inghouses. Sparks said three pro-


cessing plants owned by Brazilians
in Florida \were not interested in the
FDOC collecting Mutual taxes. He
said the FDOC decision could be
challenged in court.
Sparks said the U.S. needs a
good lat on immigration to help
keep the nation secure but also
needs a sound guest worker pro-
gram for agriculture "as part of,
immigration reform."
Sparks said he \would like to see
the U.S. Department of Agriculture
expand the Big Three of corn,
\ heat and soN beans to the Big Five
to include fruits and vegetables to
be eligible for federal aid.
Sparks said the Florida citrus
crop years ago reached a high of
240 million boxes but grower
prices \were as los as 65 cents a
pound solids. In 2004 Mutual won
a "dumping lawsuit" against Brazil
for bringing in imported orange
juice to the U.S. at prices below the
cost of production for Florida citrus
growers.
Bob Norberg. director of market-
ing and economic research for
FDOC, said about 80 percent of
U.S. households buy orange juice.
Norberg said per capital, con-'
sumption of range juice peaked at
5.3 gallons in the late 1990s but is
no'\ at 4 S gallons iper person per
vear) and is expected to drop to 4
gallons next Near due to higher

Commission. "Citrus growers have a good culture and lifestyle."

prices, for orange juice and
increased competition form other
.be erages.
He said next year about 90 mil-
lion boxes of oranges will go for
the not-from-concentrate market in
the U.S. and 35 million boxes will
Igo for the frozen concentrate mar-
ket.
SAmong Florida's citrus proces-
sors Norberg said Tropicana han-
dles about 30 percent of the state's
citrus crop and Florida plants
owned bs Brazilian interests will
handle about 45 percent of the
Florida crop.
Several growers suggested a bet-
ter quality of orange juice be served
in the U.S. school breakfast and
lunchroom program to give stu-
dents a better impression of orange
juice.
Linda Clark said some local
teachers bring their own orange
juice to give students before
statewide tests.
A barbecue pork lunch were
served to citrus officials and local
growers w ho attended the meeting.

Light One Candle
By Dennis Heaney
President Of The Christophers


MAKE IT A GREAT DAY
Recently I interviewed author and lecturer Dr. Stephen Covey on our
"Christopher Closeup" show. Covey, author of "The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People," visited us to talk about his newest book, "Everyday
Greatness Inspiration of a Meaningful Life."
In his introduction to the book, Covey says ". I believe that the
majority of people in this world are good people doing good things, and we
should not let the noise of the negative minority drown out the sound of
good that is around us."
As we visited, we talked about the similarity between the message of
his book and The Christophers: that everyone can make a difference. We
also discussed how much people need to hear positive messages about the
capacity each of us has for making our world better. We agreed that it's
human nature to expect the other person to be the agent of change or action.
If we have the time or interest, we'll participate. The problem is that some-
one has to be the catalyst for change.
The question is: Why not us?
Here's an example. Mike Czarnecki of Milwaukee saw a need for pos-
itive action and he acted on it. During his years as a driver for a baking com-
pany, he'd seen lots of surplus baked goods going to waste. It bothered him
that so many people were going hungry. He thought about how much they
would appreciate these "day-old" items. When he had to take early retire-
ment from his job because of health problems, his wife pointed him toward
the local Knights of Columbus council as an alternative to sitting around the
house. He joined in some of its volunteer efforts for the homeless and in
doing so, began to think about ways to take the baked goods that were going
to be thrown away and use them for something positive feeding the hun-
gry.
Czarnecki started going to bakery outlets, collecting the leftovers and
delivering them to local organizations that feed the hungry. Soon other
members of his Knights of Columbus council joined him in what has
become a major volunteer effort.
Six years later, Czarnecki has organized a route that delivers bakery,
items to more than 100 outlets serving those in need. His van is wearing out,
but he and his wife can't afford to replace it because their retirement income
is minimal. His only reimbursement for his effort is 14 cents a mile from
the Knights of Columbus. "But money isn't ererNthing." he said "It's
important for me.to help people. I love to see the smiles on the little ones'
faces when they see me coming with the bread."
Covey calls someone like Mike Czarnecki a "transitional person." He
has tapped his noblest impulses and made this a better 'world for others.
When Covey says goodbye, he doesn't say, "Have a nice da\." He sas s.
"You make it a nice day!" He wants to emphasize, as do The Christophers,
that we should not wait for someone else to come along and make it a good
day. It's our responsibility, and we all have the same ability to do so that
Mike Czarnecki does. All we have to do is make the decision and then
let it happen.

Robbery Charge: Seven men are in

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger


Hundreds of folks enjoyed last month's "Music in the Park" concert
with Groovus and special guest Martile Blackman. Our next concert will be
this Saturday, aid it features the wildly popular "California Toe Jam Band."
The name is definitely unusual, but the music is very familiar and,
judging from our previous years, very popular! The band will perform '50s,
'60s and '70s tunes that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
When asked about the peculiar name of the band, lead singer and gui-
tar player Harry Havery relates a surprising story. Back when the band was
formed, it had no name. "We were seniors in high school and were prepar-
ing to play for homecoming," he says. There were no plans for the band to
last any longer than that event, so no name was ever chosen. The first cou-
ple of songs they worked on were Beach Boys tunes. One of the original
band members had come with flip-flops on and "his feet were nasty,"
Havery explains. When they finished kidding him about it, they stuck the
California in front of it and the "California Toe Jam Band" was born!
They probably didn't plan on being stuck with it, but after 19 years of
performing, the band plays on.
At 7 p.m. on Saturday, they will perform for Highlands Hammock
State Park and tickets are just $5 per person. Parents, take note that you can
bring your kids. If they are 16 or younger, they are admitted free of charge!
Picnic baskets or coolers are welcome, and the Hammock Inn will be open
for dinners, snacks and desserts.
Other items to bring include a flashlight, lawn chairs or blankets and
your dancing shoes. It will be a fun time, plus you'll be helping support the
park. Hope to see you there, in The Real Florida.
Also on Saturday, the winner of the Robert Butler artwork, "Hammock
Creek," w ill be chosen. You can still get your chance at winning this stun-
ning reproduction of the famous Highwayman painter's canvas of the
park's cypress swamp catwalk. Raffle donations are available at the Ranger
Station. Chances are $10 each, with six chances for a $50 donation. Good
luck!

PIGLET PLEASURES
Once every four or five months, we go through a period where every-
where you look you see a sow having piglets. The breeding pigs are all on
pasture except for Bear, a 500-pound boar that seems sweet enough, but
can't really be trusted not to cause trouble.
Fred and I were sitting on the porch early one Sunday morning watch-
ing a Yorkshire gilt build a nest not 30 feet from the house. We watched her
pull weeds and nose them around until she got them like she wanted them.
Then she'd lie down and promptly get up and rearrange it all over again.
"She's been like that since yesterday," Fred said, sipping his coffee.
"It'll happen any minute," I said, and he nodded.
Less than a half-hour later she had the first one on the ground, and we
went over and watched her have four more in about two minutes. We spec-
ulated that there would be over a dozen, total.
"While we're on the subject of piglets," Fred said, "you need to know
that the Hampshire sow got out of the fence. She went way back in the
south pasture and had her litter."
"She did?"
"Yeah. She comes up here to eat and get water, but for now she's got
them hidden, and she's not friendly at the moment, so I didn't want you to,
stumble on her and get yourself in trouble. She'll bring them up here when,
they get big enough to travel, maybe a couple of days. Should be any time
now."
"OK."
We stood there for a few minutes more, watching the baby pigs come
into the world, shaky, disoriented, trailing umbilical cords. We marveled at
the fact that they started searching for nourishment the moment their eyes
opened.
"Remember how we used to think that we had to catch them one by
one and dry them off and guide them to the milk?" I asked. Fred grinned.
"Yeah. It didn't take long to figure out they didn't need our help."
We went about our Sunday chores and left the sow to her baby-making
business. I was standing at the kitchen sink when I saw the Hampshire sow
emerge from the weeds in the south pasture. I watched her make her way
toward the house, where there is a water trough, her babies trailing behind
her.
Those babies would never let me hold them, I thought, feeling nostal-
gic. They were too old already. Then I realized the window was rapidly
closing on the opportunity with the brand-new babies that were coming into
the world as I was standing there washing dishes. Before I knew what I was
doing, I grabbed an old cup towel and was slipping on my shoes.
"How you doin' Mama?" I said to the Hampshire sow as we passed
each other, her on her way to the water, me on my way to those new babies.
She barked a warning at me and her piglets formed a circle and stared at
me.
"Don't worry," I said, "I know better than to mess with them now."
The grass was wet against my bare ankles as I made my way to the sow
that was farrowing near the fence. If I got lucky, I could satisfy my mater-
nal longings and not cause any trouble, but I had to be careful.
As luck would have it, there was a tiny boar who had lost his way and
was half in and half out of the fence. The sow was lost in that twilight stage
that accompanies birth and had no idea I was there. The little boar had clas-
sic Hampshire markings, black head, shoulders and rump, with a white
stripe running around his belly in between. I picked him up and he grunted
softly, and I used the old towel to dry off his little face. He blinked in the
morning sun with tender new eyes, and my heart swelled.
"Now listen," I said, as he protested being away from his mother, "I
know you don't need me to do that, but the simple truth is ..." I held him
up where I could look him right in the eye, "the simple truth is," I repeat-
ed quietly, "this isn't about you at all."

WEATHER SUMMARY
Mostly favorable weather conditions existed, except for two days, during
S the week of November 6-12. Rains swept through most of the Slate exclud-
ing some areas near the extreme western coastal southern Peninsula on
Monday and Tuesday. Rainfall totals ranged from minimal trades at
Immokalee to over 2 inches at Carrabelle. Areas receiving at least one inch
of precipitation included Apopka, Brooksville, Dover, Jay, Marianna,
Pensacola, Tampa and Quincy. Most-other localities throughout the State
Received under one-tenth of an inch to nearly an inch of rainfall for the
week. A high pressure system developed mid-week that kept temperatures
around normal at most major stations. Orlando and West Palm Beach tem-
Sperattires were one degree below normal for the week. Pleasant daytime
temperatures were in the 70s and 80s. Cooler evening lows were in the 40s,
50s, and 60s.

FIELD CROPS
Growers reported a lower than average pecan crop in Jefferson County.
Peanut harvesting is finished except for some growers in Jackson County,
who expect to complete harvesting within the next ten days. Rains
improved some topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies, but several areas still
remain very dry throughout the State. Topsoil and subsoil moisture is most-
1 very short to adequate in the Panhandle. Soil moisture supplies across the
Peninsula remained mostly short to adequate. Pockets of very short supplies
were reported in Hernando, Dade, Madison, Palm Beach, Suwannee, and
Union counties.

VEGETABLES
Harvesting of fall vegetables continues to increase moderately over the
central and southern Peninsula localities as growers prepare to meet the
Thanksgiving Day demand. Some areas in the southern Peninsula that have
received less than the average amount of rainfall for the season have been
asked to voluntarily cut back on water usage to ensure there is enough water
for various uses, including irrigating crops. Tomato picking is gaining
momentum in the Palmetto-Ruskin, Immokalee, and East Coast areas,
while in the Quincy region tomato picking is decreasing. Cooler tempera-
tures aided strawberry development around Plant City and Dover.-
Producers marketed snap beans, sw eet corn, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, -'
radishes, squash, and tomatoes.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
- In the Panhandle, the pasture condition is very poor to good, with most
in fair condition. There is very little growth of permanent pasture grass, but
it is adequate for grazing. Small grain winter forage is not tall enough to:
graze. The conditions are good for the continued planting of small grains,
ryegrass, and clover. Cattle condition is mostly fair. Cattle are being fed
supplemental hay. In the northern areas, pasture condition is very poor to
good, with mbst very poor. Grass is growing some and there has been no -.
damage to grass from frost. The cattle condition is very poor to fair, with
most in fair condition. In the central areas, pasture condition is mostly
good. Despite recent rains, the pastures still struggle from the dry fall and
now cooler growing conditions. Most of the cattle are in fair condition.:?.
Many cattle are being fed supplemental hay. In the southwest, pasture con-
dition is very poor to good. Statewide, cattle condition ranges from very
- poor to-good.

CITRUS
Most Florida citrus producing counties have experienced continued dry
weather this past week. The exceptions are in the northern citrus area,
where almost two inches of rain fell in a single day, and in central Florida
which received half an inch for the week. All other citrus producing coun-
ties received less than a tenth of an inch of rain all week. Temperatures have
been in the high 70s during the day, and cooling down to the mid-50s at
night. With dry, warm weather for the last few months, growers and care-
takers are irrigating on a regular basis. Grove maintenance also includes
ditch mowing, irrigation repair, and some applications of supplemental
miticide. Color break is evident on early oranges and grapefruit. Grapefruit
quality is very good. and both colored and white grapefruit are being picked
primarily for the fresh market. Packinghouses are finishing Ambersweet
oranges and Fallglo tangerines with volume of Sunburst tangerine boxes
picking up steadily. Other varieties being picked include early and midsea-
son oranges, Navels and tangelos. Primarily processing plants are
running packinghouse eliminations.

pair of district games, both double-
headers with the girls playing at 6
p.m. and the boys about 7:30. On
Tuesday, they were at Braden River
ahd today (Thursday) travel ,to
DeSoto. Tomorrow, they play at
Winter Haven.
SThat's it, until after fall break.
Play resumes. Nov. 28 at home
against Mulberry and on Nov. 30 at
P4lmetto in the last of first-round
games against Class 4-A District 10
opponents.
Head coach Ron Kline and co-
pcach Gilbert Vasquez have one
gcpal in mind this year, produce a
district champion. "We are working
o0 developing a winning program
with the younger kids, too and con-
tinue winning for years," said
Kline. The 'Cats lost 4-3 to
Palmetto in the semifinal round of
district playoffs last year and are
anxious to better that this season.
The district trek began last
Tuesday. After a tough pair of pre-
season tournament losses against
Port Charlotte and North Port,
Hardee gained the services of Jose
Gutierrez, Gilberto Gutierrez, Luis
Reyes and Francisco "Paco"
Lozano who had finished cross
country at the regional meet.


;oys Striko
That helped immediately as
junior captain Reyes scored the
first goal for Hardee in last
Tuesday's 4-2 victory over Sebring.
He scored 13 minutes into the game
to put the 'Cats ahead. Senior cap-
tain Alberto "Chico" Rodriguez
added another score on a penalty
kick 23 minutes into the first half.
Sebring managed a solo score,
leaving Hardee up 2-1 at halftime,
reported Kline.
In the second half, Hardee
padded its lead 3-1 six minutes into
the action when senior Rafael
Hilario scored. With.a little over 16
minutes left in the game, Rodriguez
took another penalty kick for a
goal. Sebring scored once more,
leaving Hardee with the 4-2 win.
Lozano played goalie and "is
looking stronger than last year. His
kicking length has improved from
last year. He is booming them 50
yards or more, which puts the
opponent on their side of the field.
It's great keeping them out and
gives us a chance to jam up the
middle," said Kline.
He also lauded the defense in
Tuesday's game. Juniors Jose
Castaneda and Adam Juarez, soph
Francisco Rivera and freshmen
Martin Vega all came in for acco-
lades for their work. Soph Roman
Alvarez "was all over the place,
too," commented Kline.
At Avon Park on Thursday, Kline
moved Alvarez up to left side strik-
er, with Reyes on the right side.
Eight minutes into the game Reyes
had a corner kick. The header was

Victory
taken by Alvarez and "Chico"
Rodriguez, with the ball getting in
the goal off Alvarez.
About seven minutes later, senior
captain Jose Alonzo took the ball
in, beat the block in the middle and
scored.
At the 25-minute mark, another
senior, Rafael Hilario, passed the
ball to Alvarez, who headed it past
the goalie for the third tally of the
game.
At the 29-minute mark, just 11
minutes left in the half, it was
another pass, from Rodriguez to
Alvarez, who was able to kick it in
past the goalie. Rodriguez, playing
in the middle, between Reyes and
Alvarez, played the "quarterback,"
passing and setting up his wings for
the scores. Hardee led 4-0 at half-
time.
SAll four scores of the second half
were by Reyes. At eight minutes, it
was a pass from Rodriguez. At 17
minutes, Reyes was in front of the
goal "for another nice kick." The
final shots came as time \\as \ ind-
ing down. With two minutes to go.
Reyes had an open shot from the
side and took it. With one minute
left, he scored again.
The only score for Avon Park
came on a rebound of a corner kick.
Lozano blocked it but another Red
Devil was able to put it back in.
Sophomore Efrain Ruiz played
goalie for the first half and %%ill
continue to.alternate with Lozano
to gain experience.

Chris DeLaRosa and Johnny
Huron, sophs Elisio Diaz. Jorge
Juarez, Carlos Ramirez, Domingo

Kline said he is thrilled to ha\e
former:coach Gilbert Vasquez on
the sidelines with him "It's an
extra pair of eyes. and more knowIl-
'edge. We complement each other
well. It is t wonderful to ha\e anoth-
er experienced coach to work
with," concluded Kline.

If you haven't figured out where

Decide where you want to go im

Decide where you want to go in

A successful life is God's will t

died when the two schools couldn't come to an agreement for
nearly 40 years. "
Some point to a fight that broke oit at the end (if a 6-6 gire in
1907 as the reason the rivalry was discontinued, and local folklore
would lead one to believe that it took an act of the Alabama state
legislature to make the game happen in 1948. The fact is that the
schools could not grcce on where to play the game, how much the
players should receive per diem, andt who the officibs should be.
Saying 'enough is enough," Auburnpresident Ralph B.
Draughon and Alabama president John Galialee met several times
in the winter and spring of 1948 and came to agreement that the
rivalry should be resumed.
a Records: Aubunm 9-2 (5-2 SEC West); Alabama 6-5 (2-5 SEC

Alabama's Mike Shula (26-22). l Series: Alabama leads 38-3 1-1.
a Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday. I TV: CBS.
Key for Auburn: Make a tradition of knocking around
Alabama quarterbacks. The Tigers sacked Crimson Tide signal-
caller Brodic Croy!e a school-record I 1 times in last year's 28-18
victory.
Key for Alabama: Win'the first hall, which the Crimson Tide
has.failed to do in the past two weeks in losses to Mississippi State
and LSU. The team leading at the break has won 72.9 percent of
the games in the series.

coming to Durham in 2002 to serve as the Blue Devils' defensive
coordinator. Midway through the 2003 season, Roof found
himself taking over die position of head coach on an interim basis,
and his signature victorycame in his first gane. as the Blue Devils
embarrassed freshman quarterback Reggie Ball and the Yellow
Jackets 41-17.
lhat first win, and a 30-22 decision over North Calxilina in the
.season finale, made the decision easy for Duke's administration,
and Roof.had the word "interim" removed from his tide that
December. Success ias eluded Roof each of the subsequent three
seasons, though, and his young team needs to pull another upset to
entice recruits and show the school's brass that the program has
potential.

Darrius Heywaid-Bey, the Tenapins
moved o -2 on the season wtth a -13

matched the longest in NCAA Division I-A
football ths season and was the second-
longest play from scrimmage, ranking
behind Connecticut's Terry Caulley's
98-yard run against Army on Oct. 14.
IIaM I Les-than 96hours after
defensive tackle Bryan Pata
was shot to death outside his home, the
Hurricanes soldiered on and hit the held ;

Amenca wide receiver C Johnson to
13 yards on three catch last week. "They
got after (Yellow Jackets quarterback)
Reggie Ball, and they dida terificjob on'

scheme, and it was some great focus."

positionto win the
Atlantic Division championship after
beating Florida State 24-20 on Oct.5,
suffered its fifth consecutive loss last wee
and willfinish no better than 5-7 this ,'

MESSAGE FROM "A SEMESTER AT SEA"
It was my privilege to read several e-mails, or blogs as they call them
now, from April Morley, a college student who is experiencing what is
called "A Semester At Sea" where students study and experience life in for-
eign countries..
April is the granddaughter of Winnie Duncan, who has worked for me
more years than either one of us like to remember, but I have April's per-
mission to share her experiences and will use them as a series for a few
weeks.
Her first e-mails were very short paragraphs when she was in San,
Diego and HawaiiSh_04y mentioned beaches, swimming pools and snor-
keling Americaa:en she arrived in Japan --Her blog follows.
"Every experi e had so far has been amazing in its own way.
I have basically faced'every fear I already had at this point. In Japan. I
naively thought that climbing a mountain would be a fun and challenging
hike. Well, climbing a mountain is just what it is. CLIMBING. Especially
when I picked the highest mountain in Japan to get my hands dirty rock
;climbing. Did I mention I have always been scared of heights.
"Never-the-less, I made it to the top of the 14,000-foot mountain' aid'"
froze to death whi soaking wet and starving. It was night when we
made it to the top:'WSlept in a shack at the top of the mountain and
climbed down the next day.
"It was the least prepared I have ever been for something and I climbed
it with only one other girl. By the end of the journey, we both felt like war-
rior princesses.
'"To add to the experience we met a Japanese man on the way down
who turned out to be. a real sweetheart. He taught us Japanese while we
'climbed down an then at the bottom of the mountain, he offered to drive:
!us over an houtib '6 '
Not only did hbe' us to l,'*ran: he took us out for sushi since'
'that was on our list of things to do in Japan. He paid for our massive lunch
.'and followed us ill the way to the train station to make sure that \e got
>Lthere all right. .
"I visited Hiroshima which was a little disturbing from an American
standpoint because they saw themselves as victims of American's need to
make legitimate the r ch put into makingthe bombs that were dropped.
S "As much of ailtition as it was for all the innocent people.Japan
suffers from historical amnesia and they completely forget everything the\
did to cause the dropping of the bombs.
"It was a sad day and I cried dunng the video they showed us because
there was a little girl who couldn't cry out anymore after the damage of the
bomb, but you can see the words formed on her mouth screaming momma
:as tears rolled down her cheeks and she was completely helpless and
orphaned.
"I have finallygen sick atr being on the ship which is a breeding
"ground for all the cebbacteriathat w.e have encountered. We wNere at sea
.for two more days befhm we arrived in Myanmar (Burma). ':
; "This should have been an experience I would have had if I could have:
talked with the local people. This place is straight out of a book. The mili-
tary runs every last thing in the lives of the people, as far as having any con--
,versation they have with foreigners.
"It makes Americans seem like spoiled punks when we run around
yelling free speech wi*eut even knowing the meaning of trying to defend.
,ridiculous claims whlM4here are really people in the world who cannot'
even send an e-mail toa 'friend or speak of anything about their lives that
'may give us a clue about how bad it really is.
"It is rarely even heard by most Americans and it is highly recom-
1mended not to visit because of how bad it is. We, as a country, have boy-.
:cotted them so that we show no)support for the government.
"I am realizing that I have so much more to say than I have room for
;so I need to write more often."

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, it is finally late November. This is the time of the
month championships are really won. Rutgers put on a show for a Thursday
Night ESPN audience by defeating Louisville. The Scarlet Knights,a long.
time media joke in college football, is now the media darling. A Top 10
ranking this week is its highest in history. A Dec. 2 game with West Virginia
in Morgantown will determine the Big East Champion. The road to the Big
East Championship always runs through Morgantown where WVU has
won three straight titles.
The USF Bulls got win number seven over Syracuse. Latest projec-
tions have South Florida playing a bowl game in Birmingham. Bull fans
will be more likely to make that trip than the Toronto Bowl. USF finishes:
with games at Louisville and West Virginia.The Bulls stunned the Cardinals.
last year. Let's hope they do it again.
The ACC race is coming to a climax. Georgia Tech has clinched one'
division. The other is still up for grabs. Maryland and Wake Forest could be:
on a collision course over Thanksgiving Weekend. Wake Forest shut out
FSU for the time in Bowden's career. The Terps have come on strong to.
post an 8-2 record. The SEC saw Florida and Arkansas position themselves,
for a showdown in the SEC Title Game in Atlanta. If Florida wins out, the i
Gators could find themselves in the National Championship Game against.
the winner of the Ohio State and Michigan game. Blocked kicks by Jarvis
Moss saved the season for Florida.
S There is still a lot of football to be played. Four one-loss teams lost this
weekend. It is too early to set the bowl lineup. A look at the Top 10 shows
three teams from the Big East and. three from the SEC. USC is. the only
PAC-10 team. Michigan and Ohio State are from the Big 10 while Notre
Dame is an independent in football but a Big East member for all other.
sports.Very interesting, there are no ACC teams in the Top 10?
Governor-Elect Charlie Crist was interviewed by ESPN during the
FSU-Wake game. The new Governor played some quarterback at Wake
Forest before transferring to FSU. He was challenged by the ESPN crew
'about his ability to name all the college mascots. He then blew the call by
not knowing Youngstown State University teams are the Penguins. They
are the only college team named the Penguins! YSU got its nickname in
January 1933. They played a basketball game at West Liberty State College
in West Virginia. It was a 0 night w ith sno%%. They had to push vehicles up
the hill to get there. The gym was so cold the players were hopping around
and swinging their arms. causing a spectator to remark "YSU looks like a
'bunch of Penguins". The name stuck. Come on Mr. Governor. I thought
everybody knew that story?
Now let's look at this weeks Bill O' Fare:
1. Western Carolina at Florida What's a Catamount? UF as many.
points as they want. WCU as many as LF allows.
2. West Virginia at Pitt Mountaineers win the 99th Backyard Brawl
*in fashion. W'VU 52 Pitt 17. .
3. UTEP at Marshall Thundenng Herd w ins at home. MU 33 UTEP.

Note: Linda Norman concluded her talk by reading this poem:

"Mommy, What is a Veteran?"
by Linda Ellis
"Mommy, what is a veteran?" My child asked in an innocent way'.
"And could you please explain to me itwhyt whe have a eera 's Day\'"
My mind searched for the adjectives that might help me clarify
those people, who for their country, have looked death in the eye.
I quickly grabbed the dictionary to see what Webster mnav have used.
but- "one who served in the armed forces,"
were not the words that I would choose.
But, how do you describe a veteran soldiers you have never met,
those you'll never knowthe names of and et .... never willfor ge?.
How do you describe a veteran? lHot do you coin el a defiition
for those nt ho brought this country's dreams to their tihimate fruition.
How do you describe a veteran.' Strangers who fought for you.
Men and women who risked their lives for people they never knew?
How do you describe a veteran and the sacrifices they made
so that you and your children's children could live free.. and
unafraid?
How do you describe a veteran for a child's sake?
You say "A veteran is a person to whom
we owe every breath we take.


Post commander Frank Mancini stands by monument honoring
local men who died in wars defending their country and free-
dom.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
USE OLD AGE WISELY
I never planned on becoming an old man. It just crept up on me, year
by year.
I never really noticed, because there were so many interesting things to
do. Then, the other day, I looked in the mirror and, by golly, there was an
o)d man looking back at me if ever I saw one.
SEven as a kid, I dreamed about growing up, but never with the idea of
actually getting "old". What I had in mind was somebody perpetually 25 or
maybe 30. I knew there were people out there who were older. There were
grandmothers and grandfathers and folks like that. But they just sat in rock-
ing chairs on front porches'and read newspapers.,
SOnce in a while as a kid, I went to funerals, so I knew people eventu-
"lly died. But that, too, was never a part of my plan. Life was just too excit-
ig. There were so many things to learn, so many experiences to savor. I
kas sorry when the first climbers reached the top of Mount Everest, because
'd hoped to be the first.
SAs life moved on, I found there were other kinds of "Everests" that
were every bit as tough to climb as that mystic mount in the Himalayas. I
got busy climbing some of them career, marriage, a growing family.
And, before long, the kids were grown and gone, then were reappear-
ig carrying grandkids with funny, round faces that grinned and looked like
their dads and moms and a little like me.
SI switched careers a few times and blew out more candles on more
makess and before I knew it, there was that strange wrinkled face looking
,back at me from the mirror.
S What happened to that life I'd always dreamed of as a kid? Well, it
.ame all right, but it had changed and I'd changed too.
r Now my years are winding down. I'm keenly aware now that life is
actuallyy very short and it's all preparation for another life, one described in
the Bible as going on forever,
I'm so glad I learned about that other life and the One who waits for me
there when I was young enough to let that knowledge help me with
important decisions.
J- Like the one before me now. What kind of an old age am I going to
@hoose? One marked by fretful preoccupation with my aches and pains, or
dne where I'll use my declining powers to be a blessing to others and show
the Lord how grateful I am for the wonderful years He has given.
I've made my choice. How about you?


Wauchula Church of the
Nazarene is planning a special
Thanksgiving evening service next
Wednesday, Nov. 22.
The congregation invites every-
one to join them "in giving thanks
to our Lord for all of His bountiful
blessings." The church is at 511 W.
Palmetto St., (corner of Palmetto
and North Florida Avenue).
The First Baptist Church of
Fort Meade is hosting a gospel
sing on Monday at 7 p.m., featuring
the Hemphills. Joel and LaBreeska
Hemphill have recorded and sung
gospel music for over 38 years, on
television and overseas.
Rev. Kenny Slay and the congre-
gation at the church on 307 E.
Broadway St., Fort Meade invite
everyone to join them in enjoying
the Hemphills concert.

ProCorp Subdivision Approved


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After months of wrangling a
huge subdivision in west Wauchula
has been approved.
Local attorney Steven Southwell
and contractor Greg Macklin pre-
sented the modified agreement and
conceptual site plan for up to 165
homes to the Wauchula City Com-
mission on Monday night.
The relatively smaller Tract 1
which exits on Louisiana Avenue
will be "estate" lots with a mini-
mum lot width of 95 feet and mini-
mum of 20,000 square feet. Some
lots will be larger than an acre.
The larger Tract 2, which exits on
SR 64 will have a mix of housing.
About three dozen will be town lots
with a minimum 70-foot minimum
width and minimum of 1,250
square feet of living space, 1,800
square feet under roof (including
garages, etc.)
The remaining lots in the south
tract will be minimum 1,600 square
feet of living area, 2,200 square
feet under roof.
The subdivision will be under
homeowners association manage-
ment and will include Charleston-
type street lighting of no more than


15-feet high. Internal roads will be
built to city specifications and
turned over to the city.
The subdivision, on the west side
of Terrell Road between Louisiana
and West Main Streets, has;been
zoned county A-1 (Agriculture).
One ordinance approved annexing
the property into the city limits
with a zoning of R-1 (Single-fafii-
ly residential) and land use of SER
(Single-family residential), aid
sent the land use change to the state
Department of Community Affairs
for its approval in the city compre-
hensive land use plan.
On another front, commissioners
postponed a decision on the request
to put-a commercial sign along U.S.
17 northbound or off Burris Ave-
nue (the former Fifth Avenue)
which lies parallel to U.S. 17 north-
bound (which became Fifth Ave-
nue). Present regulations prohibit
an off-premises sign.
Wauchula State Bank president
Robert Hanchey asked to place the
sign on a vacant property owned by
Bill Crews. The property is not
contiguous to the bank property.
After lengthy discussion of a
larger sign that would list all Main
Street businesses, and/or "all city

businesses, the commission decid-
ed it needed more time to perhaps
amend the city sign ordinance.
The discussion also included the
need for a directory sign listing all
the community's churches. That
issue will be studied as well.
In other action, the commission:
swore in new commissioners
Connie Spieth, David Royal, Jerry
Conerly and Mavis Best. Spieth,
Royal and Conerly were re-elected
without opposition. Best replaces
former Commissioner Amy
McClellan who left the community.
The commission chose to contin-
ue Royal as Mayor and selected

commission will review the current
list of committee assignments and

THANKFULNESS HEALS!
Happy November! The month our thoughts are focused on our harvest
of blessings, on gratitude and giving thanks.
Melody Beattie said "Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns
what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos
to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a
home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings
peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Whether it is learned, part of our in-born personality or even seeming-
ly unrealistic, positive thinking may help you heal!
Positive thinking, and its power over health, is something most of us
have heard about. Since Norman Vincent Peale coined the phrase "the
power of positive thinking" in his 1987 book of the same name, hundreds
of medical studies have examined the role of attitude on the human condi-
tion.
What scientists have discovered is that optimists those who are
thankful are less likely to become sick and more likely to overcome ill-
ness than pessimists are. This includes all illnesses, from colds and the flu
to heart disease and cancer.
Even if you are not a positive thinker by nature, there are techniques
you can learn to help you put an upbeat spin on life. These include:
Change your interior dialogue. Talk nicely to yourself, even if you
have fouled up.
Listen to your self-defeating thoughts, and then argue against them.
Disappointed? Do something you enjoy! If you've had a bad day, try
to have a good evening.
Pessimism is escapable. Take charge and fight negativity.
Express gratitude to loved ones, friends, coworkers, neighbors, to
.yourself and to God. Gratitude turns negatives into positives. When we are
thankful, we find even more blessings to be thankful for.
Practice thankfulness. You simply will not be the same person after
consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance in your life.
And it can be very healing!

Soccer G
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Lady Wildcat soccer
team got its first goal 9f the season
in a close encounter at Avon Park
last Thursday.
The girls were showing improve-
ment and getting more and more
enthusiastic as the second week of
the season came to a close.
This, week includes another pair
of double-headers, with the girls
playing at 6 p.m. and the boys at
7:30. This week's games were
Tuesday at Braden River and today
(Thursday) at DeSoto. After fall
break next week, the first home
games are set for Nov. 28 vs. Lake
Placid.
Actually, Hardee had success in a
couple of close matches last week.
The Lady, Cats played at Sebring
last Tuesday. They were elated at
halftime after a scoreless 40 min-
utes, reported coach Rob Beatty.
"In the first half, they had control
and were doing several good
things, several shots on goal, bring-
ing the ball up the wings and then
opening opportunities up the mid-


hirls Get On Board


dle.
"Unfortunately, they were so
excited at halftime, they couldn't
settle down as the second half start-
ed. As a result, Sebring scored in
the first 25 seconds. Abit later, they
scored again on a lucky shot which
swooped up and fell into the cage,"
commented Beatty.
After that the Hardee girls settled
back down, regained focus and shut
Sebring down. "But we resorted to
bad habits, swarming to the ball,
until the last five or 10 minutes
when we were fighting hard to
score. It was a good effort,'' con-
cluded Beatty, who alternated
senior Christina Badillo and fresh-
man Kristina Garcia as goalie.
It was another good effort last
Thursday, when senior JMaggie
Rodriguez was fouled while dri-
ving hard to the box and was hit
from behind. "It was a beautiful-
penalty kick, a hard shot to the left
end of the goal," said Beatty,
"Our girls are getting better pass-
ing. We came out sluggish and they
scored once about two minutes into
the game. We got into stride and


began getting opportunities. It was
1-0 at halftime," the coach related.
"We got more shots on goals in
the second half. We're not afraid to
shoot on goal. They got another
goal 19 minutes into the second
half. Kristina (Garcia) had 11 saves
and only missed that one.
"Our speed is good, but their
girls get back real f.t Actually, if
our goals had gone in, though, we
could have won 4-2. That's two
games this week, which could have
been won. I let some younger play-
ers, Marce Ramirez, Vicky Con-
treras, get some time in. They need
to work.more on ball handling and
I expect it to get better, it is better
than at this time. last year,"contin-
ued Beatty, who expects his team to
continue to be competitive and pick
up some wins.
Other girls playing this year are
Cynthia Briseno, Ramona Campos,
Mandy Cornelius, Ashley Islas,
Melissa Hollon, .Esmeralda
Martinez, Luisa Gonzalez, Esna
Francisco, Daisy Escoto, Lucy
Ruiz, Nancy Ramirez, Sara Lopez,
Abigail Hernandez and Erika Felix.

Hoop Girls Start Season


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Lady Wildcat hoops got going on
Tuesday evening at home against
district rival Palmetto.
:Today (Thursday), the girls jour-
jey west to tangle with Sarasota
Pooker. Next week's games are
t ome Tuesday against Braden
Liver and Thursday at Sebring. It
till be early December before the
fnal two district rivals, DeSoto and
Nvon Park, are seen.
- Hardee had a mixed outing in last
Ieek's pre-season Tip-Off Tourna-
$ent at Sebring. In game one on
tuesday, 'Hardee was overrun by
(keechobee 51-24. On Thursday,
lardee came back stronger to
oppose LaBelle in a 43-41 loss.
S"The difference was like night
ind day. We weren't getting back
n n defense quickly against
Okeechobee and that's why the
Lady Brahmans beat us. We
worked on that in Wednesday's
practice and tonight was different,"
,aid interim coach Ken Leupold,
Assistant filling in for head coach
b:on Gray who is sidelined while
recovering from heart surgery.
: Also sidelined were a pair of var-
Sity players, seniors D.K. Davis (in-
jured knee) and Jamie Buckley
;flu).
" 'Tonight, was one of the best
rebounding games I've seen in our
kids. They kept the opponent out
:vith the 1-3-1 defense. We
switched from man-to-man and ran
:he zone and it worked well. We



SWEETBAY GRAND O0


would like to have won, but I'm not
disappointed with their effort," said
Leupold.
Last Tuesday's game against
Okeechobee was uphill all the way.
Hardee was down 13-4 after the
first period and it only got worse.
Hardee had no answer for Tierra
lMien, who hit 10 deuces and a pair
of treys enroute to a 27-point night
for Okeechobee.
For Hardee, senior Christina Jena
had eight points, Buckley seven,
junior Gloria Solis and soph
Sabrina Holmes each four points,
and senior Ciara Lambert and soph
Naomi Alvarado each two points.
In Thursday's game against
LaBelle, it was difficult to get any
momentum as jump ball calls were
as frequent as foul calls. LaBelle
was called for 21 fouls and Hardee
for 19.
Junior center Andrea "Drea"
Parkinson tapped the ball to Solis
and the game was on. Back and
forth it went, with junior Paige
Avery at point, Jena as shooting
guard, and Solis and Lambert as
forwards.
It was almost two full minutes
before Irene Garza canned a pair of
free throws to put LaBelle in the
lead. As the first quarter' passed,
Parkinson hit one-of-two foul
shows and Jena nailed a deuce. At
the midpoint, Hardee had a 3-2
lead. Fifteen seconds later Garza hit
a deuce and LaBelle led 4-3.
By the end of the first period,
LaBelle was hitting its free throws


and had a 12-5 advantage. Holmes
came in and hit back-to-back shots
to narrow the gap to 14-9. LaBelle
had its largest lead at 21-11, before
Hardee climbed back in the game.
Jena and Parkinson hit free throws.
With a Solis shot at the 10-second
mark, Hardee had cut the LaBelle
lead to 23-18 by halftime.
Each team had a player already
with three fouls and several with
two fouls as coaches made halftime
adjustments.
Early in the third stanza, Garza
hit a pair of free throws and Solis
drove baseline and dished to Jena
for a score. Holmes' play began to
make a difference. She got a trio of
free throws. The first bounced up,
in and out. She nailed the next two
dead center. Shortly, she began hit-
ting three-point shots.
When Erica Ureste took a Jena
pass to score, it was a 28-27 game.
Hardee took its only lead at the
2:05 mark when Jena drove in and
handed to Parkinson for the bank
shot. Hardee led 29-28.
That lasted about 15 seconds
when Nancy Vasquez scored for the
Cowgirls to make it 30-29. Late in
the third period and early in the
second LaBelle lengthened its lead.
Solis got both ends of a one-and-
one and Holmes hit another trey,
cutting the Cowgirls lead to 37-34.
After Chelsey Ramos sank two free
throws, there were several minutes
when both teams came up dry.
With a little over three. minutes
left in the game, Jania Thompson


got a shot in the key and put the
Cowgirls up 41-34. Garza rebound-
ed and went all the way to make it
43-34.
The rest of the game belonged to
the Lady Wildcats, who wouldn't
concede. Jena hit a free throw,
Holmes a trey. She was fouled on
the next trey and hit all three shots,
making it 43-41. Hardee ran out of
time before the girls could score
again.
For the night, the high scorer was
Holmes with 18 points, including
four treys and five of six free
throws. Jena added eight points,
Solis a half dozen, Parkinson five,
and Avery and Naomi Alvarado
each two points.


For LaBelle, Garza was high
with 14 points, while Ramos and
Thompson each had 11.
Getting on the court Tuesday of
this week were the junior varsity
players who have waited for their
opportunity to play. JV games are
at 6 p.m., with the varsity squads
going at it about 7:30.
Hardee has a new coach on the
hill. Reading teacher Karen Polly
brings a wealth of experience and
enthusiasm. She played three years
at Fort Lauderdale high and four at
Florida International University in
Miami, which was in the NCAA
playoffs during her time there. Her
coach there had played pro ball for
the New York Liberty and the


Sacramento team. Half of her col-
lege squad was from Europe.
With' that caliber of competition
at power forward, weak side for-
ward and center, Polly is bringing a
new feel and challenge to the Lady
Wildcats. Her husband Chris Polly,
an eighth grade science teacher,
and their child Karisma, who will
be one year old in December, are
sharing her for the season.
Her JV squad includes senior
Andrica Rivers, new to the sport,
juniors Charlene Anderson, Court-
ney Packard ard Megan White,
sophs Biandy Crockett and Barbie
Hinojosa, and freshmen Carleen
Brown, Jennifer Redden, Lindy
Rossman and Ashley Smith.

Thank you Hardee County for the encourage-
ment, support and perspective you so gra-
ciously gave to me over the past several
months. I have grown a great deal personally
through this experience. I sincerely hope and
-;:, honestly expect that we as a community have
grown as well, so that the issues at hand will be
addressed. The strength of our school system
and future success of our students will 'always
be worth getting involved and striving to make a positive differ-
ence. We ALL have the responsibility to work together for the


greater good. THANKS AGAIN!
