Defendant Walks




Away From Trial

SThe Jury's Verdict Was 'Guilty';

Authorities Search For Joe Johns


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The jury came back. The lawyers
came back. The judge came back.
But the defendant didn't.
It was 6 o'clock last Thursday,
night when jurors in Hardee Circuit
Court reached a verdict in the drug-
trafficking trial of Joe Paladin
Johns, 30, of 9135 SR 64 W. in
Ona.
'Circuit Judge Robert L. Doyel
read the verdict aloud, guilty on all
five counts: trafficking in metham-
phetamine, possession of oxy-
codone, possession of alprazolam,
possession of less than 20 grams of
marijuana ard resisting arrest with-

One of a mischievous child-

mended by a state Department of
Education study, will come in at a
total of $36,175, which includes
$32,795 for the buildings them-
selves and $3,380 for the removal
of asbestos found in some panels
and a heater.
Four contractors submitted bids
for the work, according to Rocky
Kitchens, deputy superintendent of
operations. The job was awarded to
Forman's Construction of Avon
Park as the low bidder.
Kitchens said the quartet slated
to fall are the original office, library
and two classroom wings, known
as buildings 10, 7, 2 and 3 respec-
tively. Those four structures and a
cafeteria and physical education
rooms once made up the campus
built to serve seventh graders and
some eighth graders, he said.
At the time, Kitchens explained,
sixth grade was still in the elemen-
tary school that was on Oak Street.
Eighth grade was in a wing of the
old high school, upstairs and on the
southwest side. He noted that the


high school had been constructed
for grades seven through 12.
That old high school eventually
became the North Campus of
Hardee Junior High School. And
the old seventh- and eighth-grade
structures became known as the
South Campus.
The North Campus, considered
historic, will remain intact,
Kitchens emphasized.
Currently, it is home to the
Exceptional Student Education
Department and some Red Cross
training classes. Plans are to move
all district administrative offices
there some day, he said, and to sell
the U.S. 17 site now used for that
purpose.
Two newer structures on the
sprawling north-south campuses
also will remain in use. The junior
high's cafeteria will be used by the
pupils at Wauchula Elementary
School. The media center houses
the district's Curriculum Depart-
ment and, soon, the School Board's

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The Hardee Wildcats last Friday defeated a strong Lakeland Kathleen
team and will host the Bartow Yellow Jackets this Friday at Hardee Stadium
at 7:30 p.m.
Hardee has not been this deep into the state football playoffs since'
1995 when the Wildcats reached the championship game against
Jacksonville Bolles.

We hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving season.

Congratulations to the Democratic Paity for gaining a majority of seats
in the U.S. House and Senate in the Nov. 7 election.
The Republican Party got a black eye for President Bush's lack of
progress in the war in Iraq, a scandal of Rep. Foley's e-mails to House
pages, an escalating national debt, a growing trade deficit, a scandal from a
crooked defense contractor, and a loss of high-paying manufacturing jobs
in jobs in U.S.
The biggest single reason for the the Republican decline was the
administration's decision to go to war against Iraq in 2003 based on faulty
intelligence and the lack of progress 3 1/2 years later. Many lives have been
lost, and.many people injured.
By the end of President Clinton's secondferii, the federal budget \% as
balanced with surpluses projected for the next few years.
Then 9-11-01 occurred, and the world has not been the same since for
America. The stock market declined but has recovered and is now at a his-
toric high. Tax rates are low. There has not been another terrorist attack on
U.S. soil since 9-11-01. Those are three good marks for the Republican
administration.
TV star Lou Dobbs has written a book about America's Middle Class
being hurt in recent years through our global free trade policies. It seems
our: markets are more open than some of our trading partners.
The Democrats will be working with the administration and
Republicans on a new direction in Iraq, raising the tax rates for the nation's
wealthy, and helping Middle Class Americans. Historically, Democrats are
for helping the poor and protecting the environment.
Many lower income Americans have been hurt in the last two or three
years by highergas prices, which were caused in no small part by the Iraq
war. The prime interest rate in the last two or three years has.gone from 4
to 8 1/4 percent.
Hopefully the President, Senate and House of Representatives,
whether Republican or Democrat, can work well together to improve our
budget and trade deficits and our image abroad, while protecting our health
and environment.
America needs to improve our manufacturing base and protect our
agriculture. We need to make our TVs, electronics, clothing and shoes here.
Some tax loopholes will need to be tightened.

Two recent news items that one could ponder ...
1. An Orange Park man, 54, credits two small Bibles in his shirt pock-
et for saving his life when they stopped a rifle bullet from two men who
ambushed him as he carried bags of garbage to a trash bin. He had a red
mark and chest pain, reported The Florida Times-Union. He was caring the
New Testament Bibles to give to friends.
2. Heavy winds caused a large tree to fall on an evangelical church in
northeastern Nicaragua while an American pastor was delivering his ser-
mon. Over 100 people were in the church. Eleven died, including the
preacher, Rev. Larry Wayne Poll, a 64-year-old native of Alabama. Why
couldn't the tree have fallen when the church was empty?

Johns, who had posted a $74,000
surety bond on Dec. 14 of last year
to gain his release while awaiting
the disposition of his case, was free
to come and go during the course of
'his trial.
He chose to go.
Sometime while the jury was in
deliberations, from 5:13 p.m. to
nearly 6, Johns decided not to wait
for a verdict that might and did -
go against him.
The verdict, however, stands,
despite the defendant's absence, the
judge noted.
Doyel has issued a warrant for
Johns' arrest.

"It's called a Castaldi Analysis,"
said. "Architects and engineers
ok at the buildings and determine
it will cost more to bring those
ildings up to code to make them
habitable for students than to

n is not justified. Replacement of

the existing buildings with new
construction is warranted."
And that is precisely what
occurred with the opening of the
new junior high campus this sum-
mer.
"Each year, our safety inspec-
tions found more and more,"
Kitchens said. "The maintenance
requirements on them were con-
stantly a problem. At some point in
time, you're better off to tear down
and build new.
"Anytime you replace an air con-
ditioner, you bring them up to
code," he went on to explain. "It got


better to replace them than to try to
repair them or bring them up to
today's code."
Handicapped access and fire
safety were two main concerns, he
added. Another was their construc-
tion. "These have a lot of wood,
which is a no-no now in school
buildings," the deputy superinten-
dent said.
The roofs needed to be replaced,
the roofing decks were rotted, the
trusses were rotted, the soffit and
fascia were bad, the electric service
was inadequate, the wiring was old,
the lighting was insufficient and
inefficient, the fire alarm needed to
be replaced, the intercoms did not
work, the restrooms were not com-


pliant with current accessibility
law, the flooring needed to be
replaced, the ceilings needed
replacement, the glass was break-
able and not safety glass, the venti-
lation was inadequate, the elevation
was too low and prone to flooding,
wet carpet required continual
replacement and mold and mildew
existed, Kitchens said.
Part of the reason these four
buildings will be removed is their
proximity to the path the elemen-
tary youngsters will travel as they
make use of their "new" cafeteria,
he said.
"The junior high cafeteria will
become Wauchula Elementary
School's cafeteria, and it's a safety

concern," Kitchens explained. "The
students would have to pass these
buildings to get to that cafeteria."
The original 1961 cafeteria and
physical education rooms, though
also eligible for demolition by state
standards, will stay standing and
will be used for storage. "They are
set off from these four buildings;
they're farther away," Kitchens
noted.
Kitchens said the demolition will
be followed by the installation of
covered and enclosed walkways
which will take the children from
their classrooms to their cafeteria.
"They will have a roof and sides
to protect the kids from the ele-
ments," he described. "They'll be
enclosed with Lexan, and will be
ventilated at the top and bottom.
They will protect the kids as they
walk across."
Kitchens said similar walkways
are used at Disney World, the
Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center
and in northern climates subject to
snowstorms.
Forman's Construction will
begin the demolition on Monday.
Construction fencing and -barriers
will be put up before any building
comes tumbling down. Some old
sidewalks will be removed as well.
"They'll level it to the ground,"
Kitchens said. "After we get it
done, we'll decide whether to sod it
or seed it. What we'd like to do is
use some of that area for a
Wauchula Elementary School play-


ground or for more parking for
teachers."
Kitchens said Building 10, the
front office, contains 1,800 square
feet. Building 7, the original
library, is 1,750 square feet. Each:
of the 20 classrooms is 900 square
feet, he said.
"I'm split on whether I want to
see them go or not, because we're
responsible for maintaining them,"
he noted. "They. present a bigger
problem to us than a value. Once
kids come out of them,'they can't be
used again for a classroom. We
would have to bring them up to
standards, and the Castaldi
Analysis has already told us it was,
more feasible to build new than to
renovate.
"It is sad to see those old build-
ings go," Kitchens continued, "but;
I'm not so sad to see them go that
my common sense wouldn't say we.
need to take them down and get
them out of there, for safety reasons
and for economic reasons."
A bronze plaque which had been
displayed prominently on an exteri-:
or wall of the old office building,.
has been taken down and saved in'
anticipation of the demolition.
It notes the 1961 construction':
date, and that E. Wilton Stephens
was superintendent of schools at
that time. The Hardee County:
School Board from that period is:
also listed, including Chairman
David R. Stewart and members"

Bowling Green Receives



$700,000 State Grant


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The city of Bowling Green has
received a $700,000 state grant to
improve stormwater drainage in the
southwest part of the city in the
Grove Street area and for play-
ground equipment for the two city
parks.
The grant came from the Florida
Department of Community Affairs
as a community development block
grant, said city manager David
Elbertson. He said engineering
design is underway for the
stormwater drainage project.
Elbertson also said the basketball
court at Community Park will be
improved and that electrical work
will be done soon at Pyatt Park. He
is getting quotes for restrooms at
both parks and a concession stand
at Pyatt Park as part of a state grant
project.
Construction on a new Dollar
General store will begin in early
2007, said Elbertson. The store will
be located at the southwest corer
of Main Street and U.S. 17.
The city commission on Nov. 14
approved spending $6,500 for
Chastain Skillman to do engineer-
ing and architectural work at the
recreation center at Pyatt Park and
to convert the old fire department
building into new city commission
chambers.
The commission agreed to
extend the moratorium on new
building projects, through Dec. 17
until more research can be done.
Mayor Perry Knight said he is
getting complaints of stray dogs in
the city. "There is a serious dog
problem. Wauchula Police Chief
Bill Beattie has offered for his city
to help Bowling Green at no


charge."
City attorney Gerald Buhr said
he needs to check the interlocal
agreement with Wauchula to see if
it includes rounding up stray dogs.
Mayor Knight will report back to
the commission at the December
meeting concerning the dog situa-
tion. The mayor asked police chief
John Scheel to check into the dog
problem.
Commission David Durastanti
suggested the city find another site
for the proposed 50-unit duplex
apartment project proposed for
Bryan Ave. across from Bowling
Green Elementary School.
The commission approved the


final reading of an ordinance to
establish "proportionate fair share
transportation mitigation program,
ect." required by the state for future
improvements.
The commission okayed the first
reading of an ordinance to increase
the minimum lot width in the R-1
single family residential zoning
district from 75 feet to 80 feet.
The commission approved the
first reading of ordinances to assign.
future land use classification of
commercial to the Abdel-Halim
parcel at 4108 U.S. 17 North and to
assign a zoning category of C-1
general retail commercial to the
annexed Abdel-Halim property.

Nutrition Notes

YOUR HEART MAY NOT NEED MORE VITAMIN B
The use of three B vitamins folate, B-6 and B-12 as a sound strategy
to promote heart health may be coming to an end. These three \ itamins still
seem to lo\\er blood levels of an amino acid called homocysteme, but this
reduction doesn't appear to affect heart disease or stroke risk. You should
still eat foods that are good sources of these nutrients, but high-dose sup-
plements aren't scientifically supported for now.
Two new studies confirm previous findings that these three B vitamins
can reduce homocysteine'in the blood. In one of the studies. \erv high doses
of folic acid. B-6 and B-12 reduced homocysteine by about 17 percent in
more than 5.500 men and women at least 55 years old with heart-related
disease.or diabetes. In the other study, smaller amounts of B-12 and folic
acid but still well beyond the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)
dropped homocysteine by 27 percent in men and women who had just suf-
fered a leart attack. Previous studies also show similar reductions in homo-
cysteine after folate and B-12 supplementation beyond the RDA.
Why worry about high levels of homocsteine? Normally, they don't
develop, because an ongoing reaction combines homocysteine with part of
the folate molecule to form a substance called methionine. Lack of folate or
B-12 (a participant in the reaction) slov s this conversion. B-6 can help
reduce homocysteine. too. by helping it change to another substance.
Studies suggest that too much homoc steine damages blood vessels. In
past population studies. 25 percent lower levels have been related to at least
10 percent less heart disease, and 20 percent less stroke. In the two new
studies, however, although relatively large amounts of B vitamins did
Reduce blood levels of homocysteine. the risk of heart attack or heart-relat-
ed death was either unchanged or increased. In only one of the studies did
the risk of stroke decrease.
Some scientists now think that high homocysteine levels might indi-
cate heart-related risks not cause them. Others point out that both of these
studies involved people %who already had damaged blood vessels. These
researchers suggest that healthier people might benefit from homocysteine
reduction to prevent health problems. In addition, since people in these
studies only took B vitamins for 3.5 to 5 years. longer use may have helped
because damage to blood vessels usually develops over many years.
However, experts do not want to recommend longer use at high dose lev-
els, since there was a tendency for increased heart risks in one of the stud-
ies.
When the conversion of homocysteine to methionine slows due to a
lack of B vitamins, cancer becomes a risk. Lower methionine levels seem
to disturb DNA production and repair, allowing abnormal cells to form that
could develop into cancer. Diets low in folate may increase the risk of
breast, cervix, lung and esophagus cancers, as well as adenomas and colon
cancers.
Although neither of these two new studies found any impact on cancer
risk, we shouldn't expect any since the most common cancers develop over
at least 10 to 20 years. The impact of B vitamins on methionine levels
would affect only very early stages of cancer development.
As long as you eat an abundance of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and
beans, you should get enough folate and vitamin B-6. Modest amounts of
fish, poultry, lean meat, or dairy products supply plenty of B-12 for most of
us. People over 50 (whose absorption of B-12 from food may diminish) and
vegetarians who avoid animal foods should take a multivitamin or a food
fortified with B-12 daily to get the RDA.



WELCOMING TURKEY LEFTOVERS
If.you're sick of turkey sandwiches but still have leftovers in the freez-
er, there are other ways to use up that Thanksgiving bird.
Turkey can be mixed into a soup, tossed with pasta and vegetables,
added to a salad, or used in a variety of one-dish entries. As the December
holidays approach, you'll be glad to have some cooked turkey on hand
when pressed for time or when entertaining unexpected guests.
Turkey's mild flavor adapts to many cooking styles and cuisines. Most
:seasonings and sauces go well with turkey. Wrap it in a taco, toss some into
* spaghetti sauce, or use it in a stir-fry or curry.
i Another tasty, healthful way to use leftover turkey is in a casserole.
Combined with a whole grain such as barley, turkey can be the base of a
substantial, healthful one-dish meal.
Barley has been popular since the Stone Age. It is a grain used in
breads, soups, stews and other dishes.
Usually sold as "pearl" barley, it has a mild earthy, almost nutty, flavor
that complements many types of vegetables. A single cup of this easy-to-
prepare grain contains eight grams of fiber the same amount of fiber found
in seven cups of white rice. Barley also is rich in protein, potassium, calci-
um, iron and B vitamins.
Butternut squash nicely complements both barley and turkey. It is a
large, pear-shaped winter squash with sweet orange flesh that adds cheeri-
ness to any casserole. Its mild flavor goes well with many other ingredients
and accommodates different herbs and spices.


SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER'
Michael A. Guido
Mener, Georgia


"Lord," my mother used to pray,
"don't let Michael have an easy
life."
I trembled when she uttered that
prayer. But the more I thought
about it the more thankful I was for
it. That prayer made me what I am.
I knew the Lord loved me, and
thatHe would make all things work
together for my good; and as. a:
Christian, I walked by faith, not by
sight.
By faith I turned my obstacles
into opportunities and scars into
stars, and every burden became a
blessing.
I learned to thank God no matter
what happened.

You never want to do anything to will-
ingly hurt your child, and most parents
would hope that the feeling is mutual. But
when you have a toddler who is cutting
teeth, all bets are off.
It was Thanksgiving morning and I was
standing at the sink with my hands inside a
20-pound turkey. I was feeling kind of lone-
ly in the kitchen all by myself when my
baby daughter, Jillian, waddled up behind
me and wrapped both arms around my legs
and hugged me. I was so touched that she
thought enough of me to take time out from
her busy play schedule to come visit me
that I was near tears.
"Are you Mama's girl?" I asked, enjoy-
ing the embrace and yearning to hug her
back, but little things like potential salmo-
nella poisoning and the raw turkey slime
that coated my hands prevented it. I would
have to settle for a verbal display of affec-
tion. "I love you, baby," I said, feeling all
warm and mushy inside.
Her response was to squeeze harder,
which on reflection felt a bit like a boa con-
strictor's grip, and to bite me on the back of
my right thigh with her sharp little puppy-
like teeth.
In a situation like this, your instincts
kind of take over and I did the only thing I
could do under the circumstances, which
was to shake her loose with one mighty'
wiggle. She sat down hard on the floor with
a "hummmmph!'"
I turned around to look at her, feeling'
horrible.
"I still love you, baby," I reassured her
through slightly gritted teeth. She smiled at
me in Chucky-esque fashion, giggled and
toddled away.
Jillian's 20 now and we don't talk about
"the kitchen incident." She still comes to
visit me when I'm cooking holiday meals,
but I'm happy to say she hasn't bitten me in
years.

TLv.iV Is verujthi L g
You'd think that after years of preparing
a holiday meal, I would have a leg up on
organization.
One year I thought I had outdone myself.
I made the cornbread for the stuffing the
night before, baked all the pies and made
the banana pudding. I made sure to visit the
store at least six times the day before the
holiday, as I knew they would be closed

-John Adams


Thanksgiving Day would be the equivalent
of finding the pot of gold at the end of a
rainbow.
I set dinnertime for about 1 p.m. and
spent the morning mixing, mashing, whip-
ping and sauteing. I was putting the finish-
ing touches on the final masterpiece at
about noon, a peanut butter pie for Jake,,
when I asked Jennifer to slip it in the fridge.
for me.
"Where can I put it? There's no room,"
she informed me, while standing in the
open refrigerator door.
Put it on the bottom shelf," I instructed.
"I can't."
Why not?"
The turkey is in the way."
"What?!"
It seems that with all my preparations, I
had forgotten to put the turkey in the oven.
"Go tell your father that dinner will be at
5 instead of 1," I said.
"He's not going to be happy. He already
has his plate in his hand."
The meal was delicious, albeit late, and I
have made it a new habit to put the turkey
in the oven the first thing Thanksgiving
-morning.

Just Desserts
My mother-in-law makes a cake every
Thanksgiving that is to die for.
It's got everything but the kitchen sink in
it. It has chocolate chips, coconut, pecans,
walnuts, fruit bits.:.. you name it, it's in
there.
I look forward to this cake every year
and can't even begin to imagine how much
it costs to make, as it is practically a food
group.
One year she made the cake the day
before Thanksgiving, and I simply could
not keep my hands off of it. I would be
willing to bet that I ate half the blasted cake
by myself. I snuck pieces every chance I
got, right up to the time the turkey came out
of the oven, despite insistent memories of a
childhood warning from my mother ...
"Cynthia Jean, you better stop nibbling.
You're going to spoil your appetite."
When the table was finally set with all
the holiday trimmings. I took one look at it
and felt my stomach flop over. I couldn't
even think about eating ... I was stuffed to
the gills with cake. '
I still lo\e that cake and will always have
trouble keeping my hands off of it, but after
missing a holiday meal I have learned that I
should reserve this wonderful cake for what
it was intended to be:
Dessert.

Nutrition Notes
SOUP'S ON
Fall is the beginning of soup season. From now through the winter
months, a pot of soup is an easy answer to, "What's for dinner?"
From a cook's point of view, there are many reasons for making soup.
First and foremost, it's easy to make. Chock full of such ingredients as veg-
etables, lentils, beans, and perhaps meat, soup can make a hearty entr6e,
especially if bolstered with a salad and bread, preferably whole-grain.
With a little advance planning, soup can last through several meals.
From the diner's perspective, homemade soup has more flavor and
more nutrients than any soup in a can. Homemade soup is also a good way
to control weight, especially since you can control the fat, sodium and calo-
rie content. Soup can create a full feeling with a minimum of calories. It can
keep you feeling full longer than starchy, higher-calorie foods like potatoes
and refined breads, especially if made with hearty ingredients like lentils,
beans and whole-grain rice or pasta.
A vegetable soup can make a particularly satisfying dinner. Any recipe
can be varied to accommodate what's available at the market, what you
have in the refrigerator and individual tastes. For a purely vegetarian dish,
use a vegetable broth; otherwise, a low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth will
provide more body. Spinach and other greens add color, crunch and nutri-

USING HERBS DURING CANCER TREATMENT
Surveys show that many cancer patients turn to herbal supplements
hoping to decrease the side effects of treatment or boost the body's ability
to defeat cancer. For many years, there was no sound research on which to
evaluate the effectiveness and safety of these supplements patients just
took their chances. Although there are still a lot of questions about herbal
supplements, experts now say there is some basis for evaluating them. If
you are a cancer patient considering one or more of these products, it is crit-
ical that you tell your doctor.
Herbs have the reputation of being natural and gentle, but they contain
compounds that can profoundly affect the body. Research continues on how
to harness their bioactivity to make more effective or more tolerable cancer
treatments. The strength that herbals may have for positive effects could
significantly interfere with treatments if the wrong products are used at the
wrong times.
There is another misconception about herbal products, and all supple-
ments for that matter, which everyone should be aware of. Consumers may
not always attain the same benefits observed in research studies, because
supplements may differ from what was used in research. Independent tests
on a variety of herbal products have shown that.some are missing signifi-
cant levels of important compounds, or are contaminated with unlisted
ingredients.
One safeguard against this problem is to check the label for a mark by
the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) that says "dietary supplement veri-
fied" in a circle. For a partial list of supplements verified by USP for qual-
ity you can visit www.uspverified.org. Another organization that indepen-
dently tests the quality of supplements is ConsumerLab.com. Its website is
www.consumerlab.com.
Several reports highlight the problems that a use of herbs 'can cause
during cancer treatment. For instance, depression and anxiety are common
after a diagnosis of cancer. But when people take St. John's Wort as a rem-
edy, this product can interfere with the actions of certain chemotherapy
drugs, decreasing their effectiveness. Furthermore, this herb stays in the
body for several weeks.
Another common reason for using herbs is to deal with side effects of
treatment. Ginger is widely used for nausea. But both ginger and garlic,
when used in large amounts as supplements rather than the small amounts
used in flavoring food/can slow blood-clotting times. Especially for some-
one using one of the chemotherapy drugs that also slows blood clotting,
serious bleeding problems can arise.
A third reason people use,herbs or supplements is to boost their
immune systems. Echinacea is widely used for this purpose. but studies
suggest that after eight weeks, echinacea may actually suppress the immune
system and damage the liver. Another herbal remedy, essiac tea, combines
several herbs and is said to strengthen the immune system and relieve pain.
So far no human clinical trials have been completed to support these claims.
Past animal studies did not verify them either.
A fourth use of herbs or vitamins as antioxidants may seem innocent,
but it ispotentially damaging. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy work by
creating free radicals that destroy cancer cells. Researchers warn that tak-
ing high levels, of antioxidant supplements during these therapies could
actuallycounteract their effectiveness.
Products without proven benefits may be safe for patients who want to
try them. but you should always consult with your doctor in case there are
particular risks for you. .

'Cats Kick Kathleen, Host Regional Final Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A field goal!
That was the margin of victory
for the Hardee Wildcats in the 3A
regional semi-final game last Fri-
day night.
Tomorrow (Friday), Hardee
hopes to avenge an early season
loss to the Bartow Yellow Jackets
and claim the 3A regional champi-
;onship in the process. The District
'10 runner-up Jackets are 9-3 over-
.all. \while the Wildcats are 11-1,
their only loss all season 32-31 to
Barto\\ in an overtime battle royal.
S This time the Wildcats have
,home field advantage and that
intangible aura of playing before
their loudly appreciative home
crowd. Besides giving Hardee the
,Region 3 championship, a victory
,would also send Hardee on the road
Ifor the final two games of the year.
iDec. 1 would be the usual 7:30 p.m.
battle, at either Belle Glade Glades
Central or Naples, whoever wins
ithe Region 4 title game.
SA win on Dec. 1 would propel
;Hardee to Dolphin Stadium in
Mihami for a 1 p.m. game on Dec. 8
.for the 3A state championship.
+: Before that, Hardee has to take
eare of business against Bartow,
which beat a weaker-than-usual
Sarasota Booker Tornado squad
. vWhich had barely gotten past
'Jistrict 12 runner-up DeSoto the
:previous week. The game was tied
until the fourth quarter when the
Jackets got three quick TDs in the
final quarter for the 28-7 win.
SBarrow quarterback Devarious
Cook used passes to Jasper
Stephens and Malcom Johnson
and the running of Carl Edler and


Alfrederick Jones.
Hardee took its win last week
over heralded Kathleen as senior
quarterback Weston Palmer used
TD passes to Jermaine King and
Onel Virgile and the running of
Jayquan Gandy, Jimmy Cimeus and
Herman Patterson.
The winning weapon for the
Wildcats may again have been soc-
cer star Pablo Anselmo who
notched a 38-yard field goal, was
four-for-four on conversion kicks
and boomed three touchbacks to
keep Kathleen from a long kickoff
return for a touchdown such as it
had once in the game.
It was a total team effort for the
smaller Wildcats against the Red
Devils. "They make the impossible
possible. They did all we asked
them to do. We asked for a lot and
they responded. This is a special
group. They took it on themselves
to win," said Wildcat defensive
coordinator John Sharp.
Head coach Derren Bryan
agreed. "Our kids believe in them-
selves. They played hard. This team
is a model of what we want from a
team. It was an outstanding game.
It started back in summer camp
when they formed that kind of team.
thinking. To beat a team like
Kathleen, it took everyone doing
their best. We're fortunate to have.
one of the best kickers in the area"
said Bryan.
It was a battle from beginning to
end. By halftime, Hardee had a lead
it would not surrender. Kathleen
had more total yardage at the half,
218 yards to Hardee's 206. The Red
Devils had seven first downs to
Hardee's three. But the Cats were
up 17-14. By game's end, each

team had added twin touchdowns,
and Hardee had surpassed Kathleen
in total yardage in the 31-28 win.
The game started on an ominous
note. Hardee lost the coin toss.
Kathleen deferred and Hardee had
first crack on the offense as the
cheerleader banner urged the
Wildcats to "Burn'the Devils." But,
after one first down, Hardee was

Kathleen went to work on an
eight-play 67-yard drive for the
first score of the evening. Antwan
Murray went the final 16 yards and
a Michael Dunn kick put the Red
Devils in front 7-0. It i\ould proe
td be their only lead of the game.
Junior running back got Hardee
going % ith a 65-yard kickoff return.
After a few short runs, Anselmo
narrowed the score to 7-3 with a
38-yard field goal.
Kathleen looked like it would
march downfield again, starting
from its 20-yard line after an
Anselmo touchback kick. The Red
Devils got to theHardee 39 before
being forced to punt.
The punt was downed at the


Hardee 3-yard line just before the
first quarter ended. On the first play
of the second stanza, Cimeus took
the pitch. ran down the sideline to
midfield, cut back across the field
and was finally stopped on the

going with a four-yard Gand\ run.
He ran the ball twice more before
Palmer tossed the ball across the
middle to a wide open Onel Virgile.
The Anselmo kick put Hardee up
10-7.
Another touchback kick put
Kathleen at its 20. A.Mondrel
Lathan 26-yard run appeared to get
the Devils going. But Will Krause
caused a fumble which was recov-
ered by Briant Shumard and


Hardee was in charge.
A 58-yard pass play from Palmer
to King gave Hardee the lead.
Palmer threw from the Hardee 42
to the Kathleen 40. and King did
the rest, breaking tackles and racing
over the goal line. Anselmo made it
a 17-7 Wildcat ad antage.
In fits and starts Kathleen moved
downfield on its next series, with
penalties moving them backward
and forward and a pass from'
Dominque Davis to T. J.
Lawrence netted 65 yards. Four
plays later Davis shoed through
the line for the s core. Dunn's kick:

Salvation Army Needs Bell


Ringers For Hardee County


The Wauchula Service Unit of
the Salvation Army is preparing for
the start of the annual Christmas
Kettle Drive.
Bells will begin ringing starting
tomorrow (Friday) and continuing
through Saturday, Dec. 23. It pro-
vides an opportunity for Hardee
Countians to become involved in a
very worthwhile community ser-
vice project.
All money collected in kettles in
Hardee County stays in Hardee
County. Cash and checks are
accepted. These funds are then
distributed locally through the
Hardee Help Center.
Hardee County raised a total of
$10, 587.49 through the Salvation
Army Christmas Kettle Drive in
2005.
' Hardee County has some faithful
givers, and faithful ringers are
needed. If you would be interested
in assisting with bell ringing for the
2006 Kettle Drive, contact Mary
Alderman, kettle coordinator, at
773-2164 from 8 to 5 Monday
through Friday.
'This is one way you can give
back to your community by helping
others. Please remember that if
ypu can't help by ringing, you can
ielp by giving.
THE ORIGIN OF
CHRISTMAS KETTLES
The Salvation Army captain in
San Francisco had resolved, in
December of 1891, to provide a
free Christmas dinner to the area's
poor. But how would he pay for
the food?
,As he went about his daily tasks,
that question stayed in his mind.
*tlddenly; his thoughts went back
to his days as a sailor in Liverpool,

England. On the stage landing he
saw a large pot, called "Simpson's
Pot," into which charitable dona-
tions were thrown by passersby.
The next morning he secured
permission from the authorities to
place a similar pot at the Oakland
ferry landing, at the foot of Market
Street. No time was lost in secur-
ing the pot and placing it in a con-
spicuous position, so that it could
be seen by all those going to and
from the ferry boats. In addition, a
brass urn was placed on a stand in
the waiting room for the same pur-
pose.
Thus, Capt. Joseph McFee
launched a tradition that has spread
not only throughout the United
States, but throughout the world.
By Christmas 1895, the kettle
was used in 30 Salvation Army
Corps in various sections of the
West Coast area. The Sacramento
Bee of that year carried a descrip-
tion of the Army's Christmas activ-
ities and mentioned the contribu-
tions to street-corner kettles.
Shortly afterward, two young
Salvation Army officers who had
been instrumental in the original
use of the kettle, William A.
McIntyre and N.J. Lewis, were
transferred to the East. They took
with them the idea of the Christmas'
kettle.
In 1897, McIntyre prepared his
Christmas plans for Boston around
the kettle, but his fellow officers
refused to cooperate for fear of
"making spectacles of themselves."
So McIntyre, his wife and his sister
set up three kettles at the
Washington Street thoroughfare in
the heart of the city. That year the
kettle effort in Boston and other
locations nationwide resulted in


150,000 Christmas dinners for the
needy.
In 1898, the New York World
hailed the Salvation Army kettles
as "the newest and most novel
device for collecting money." The
newspaper also observed, "There is
a man in charge to see that contri-
butions are not stolen."
In 1901, kettle contributions in
New York City provided funds for
the first mammoth sit-down dinner
in Madison Square Garden, a cus-
tom that continued for many years.
Today, however, families are given
grocery checks so that they can buy
and prepare their own dinners at
home. The homeless poor are still
invited to share holiday dinners and
festivities at hundreds of Salvation
Army centers.
Kettles now are used in such dis-
tant lands as Korea, Japan, and
Chile, and in many European coun-
tries. Everywhere, public contribu-
tions to the kettles enable the
Salvation Army to bring the spirit
of .Christmas to those who would
otherwise be forgotten to the
aged and lonely, the ill, the inmates
of jails and other institutions, the
poor and unfortunate.
In the United States, the
Salvation Army annually aids more
than 4.5 million persons at.
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Kettles have changed since the
first utilitarian cauldron set up in
San Francisco. Some of the new
kettles have such devices as a self-
ringing bell and a booth complete
with public address system over
which the traditional Christmas
carols are broadcast. Behind it all,
though, is the same Salvation Army
message, "Sharing Is Caring."

Hoop Girls Beat Booker


By JOAk SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They may have been very late
getting home, but the Lady
Wildcats brought a win in their
pockets.
A bus breakdown and relief from
a Manatee County bus and driver
got the Hardee girls basketball
team home about midnight
Thursday, but the trip may have
been worth it all as the girls defeat-
ed Sarasota Booker for the first
time in recent memory.
Coming on the heels of a
Tuesday defeat by Palmetto, the
Thursday win, the first of the year,
was important to the girls in setting
the tone for the rest of the season.
The only game this week was
Tuesday at home against Braden
River, another district opponent.
Then, it's off for the long holiday
weekend. Play resumes at Sebring
on Nov. 28, followed by a trip to
Fort Meade on Nov. 30 and a visit
from DeSoto on Dec. 1.
Still without senior guard D.K.
Davis, Hardee opened its regular
season Nov. 14 at home against
Palmetto. Andrea "Drea" Parkinson
tipped the ball to senior Christina
Jena who threw to soph Sabrina
Holmes on the run for the first two
points of the game.
From there it was a seesaw battle.
Palmetto. tied the game at 3-3 and
6-6 before forging ahead a bit for a
6-8 advantage by the end of the
slow-scoring first quarter. It was
another defensive game with lead
changes in the second period which
ended \with-'Palmetto up 15-13 at
the half.
The second half started sloOily.
but Palmetto kept the pressure on to
take a 30-17 advantage 'Tnto the
final eight minutes Theyv main-
tained that through the'iend of the
game and won 39-24.
Senior Taneya Woodie scored 19
points to pace the Lady Tigers. For
the Lady 'Cats, it was Holmes with
10 points and Gloria Solis eight
more. Solis grabbed a half dozen
rebounds and Holmes four:
At Bookei on Thursday, it was
Lady Wildcat basketball from the
get-go. "They played four full quar-
ters instead of just three like-on
Tuesday. Everyone contributed. We
went from a zone defense to man-
to-man and each girl stayed with
her opponent. They were talking to
each other, pick, pick, or coming
across. They are gelling as a team,"
said pleased coach Ken Leupold,
who is handling the varsity in the
absence of head coach Don Gray,
who is recuperating from open
heart surgerN.
Hardee started the game getting a
pair of three-point goals off
inbounds play. The first was by
Jena, the second by Holmes.
Sherisa Jones stole the ball and
scored as the buzzer ended quarter
one. Hardee was up 8-6. Hardee got
shots from Solis, Holmes and
Parkinson to lead 18-12 at halftime.
In the third stanza, Hardee
widened its advantage to 26-17
behind the shooting of Jamie
Buckley, Jena and Holmes.
"Booker came out with a smoth-
ering, hacking full-court press early
in the fourth quarter to cut. the
Hardee lead to 35-32. But the Lady
'Cats passed the ball \ell against
the press and ran the man-to-man
offense well to build up the lead
again and take the 40-32' win,"
reported Leupold.
Booker ended up with 16 fouls
against only 10 for Hardee.
Chelsea Brown finished with a
game-high 15 points, while fellow
Lady Tornado Latavia Matthews


added 10.
Holmes and Jena each had 13
'points to pace Hardee. Solis added
six, Parkinson four, and Buckley
and Jones each.. two points.
Parkinson pulled down 11 rebounds
with eight each coming from
Buckley and Solis. Jen led the team
with seven steals which Parkinson
and Buckley each stole the ball four
times, reported Leupold.
Other varsity contributors.to the
floor game were Paige Avery, Ciara
Lambert and Erica Ureste.
The junior varsity had an open-
ing game last Tuesday too. It was
the first-ever game for several of
the players against a team which
had more sophomores and had
already played its first game.
Palmetto ran roughshod over the
junior Lady 'Cats, shutting them
out 19-0 in the first quarter and 39-
4 by halftime. Even with a running
clock the second half, Palmetto
continued to press against the obvi-
ously outmatched Hardee girls, fin-
ishing the game 48-6.
The leading Palmetto player,
who stayed in the entire .game,


scored 22 points and another
added 11. For Hardee, Carleen
Brown, Brandy Crockett and
Megan White each had two points.
Other junior Lady 'Cats are
Charlene Anderson, Barbie Hino-
josa, Courtney Packard, Jennifer
Redden, Andrica Rivers, Lindy
Rossman and Ashley Smith.
"It was our first game, having the
team we did, some knowing no bas-
ketball. They grew from the first
half to the second and I expect
them to improve exponentially and
keep getting better every game,"
said first-year JV coach Karen
Polly.
After Thursday's game at
Booker, the coaches commented on
"the great improvement over the
previous game. They only lost to
Booker 36-28. Soph Naomi
Alvarado moved down from the
,varsity to give the JV the stability
and leadership it needed. She
scored 11 points. Hinojosa added.
six, including two-of-two from the
charity stripe. Crockett sank five-
of-six free throws. Brown had three
points and White two.

Safe Keeping
By Rich Shepard
Emergency Management Director


OUT WITH A WHIMPER
With the end of November rapidly approaching, we bid so long and
farewell to Hurricane Season 2006.
I know I can speak for everyone when I say we needed the break!
Responders from the state and local level (including, yours truly) are all
relieved to not have a repeat of the previous two years. Of course, since less
than favorable conditions have existed since late September, this year's
Atlantic Hurricane Season has been over (for all intents and purposes) since
late September. The atmospheric conditions that led the Atlantic to bp rela-
tively quiet did, however, cause the Pacific to be very active. Those sdme
conditions are also leading researchers to believe we may have a very active"
winter storm season as a result of an increasing El Nino effect.

An Uninvited Winter Visitor
The El Nino effect, the same condition that limited hurricane-develop-
ment, is a naturally occurring phenomenon that leads to warming sea-sur-..
face temperatures in the central and east- central waters of the Pacific
Ocean, specifically in the areas around the equator. When El Nino condi-
tions begin to surface, forecasters and climatologists look for three impor-
tant indicators:
Major shifts in patterns of tropical precipitation
Changes in pressure
Shifts in wind patterns, specifically the Jet Stream
It's important to remember El Nino is a necessary mechanism for
maintaining long-term climate stability. El Nino transports built-up heat in
the tropics to higher altitudes via atmospheric circulation. Ail climate-relat-
ed indicators are pointing to a moderate El Nino .season this winter and
spring.

S.So Why Should I Care?
If you were alive and old enough to remember the last time a "moder-
ate" El Nino impacted Florida, it resulted in the March 1993 -Storm of the .


Century." Ring any bells yet? This system resulted in some of the most
severe, non-tropical storms to ever impact Florida. Some of the impacts
included:
Snow and sub-freezing temperatures in North Florida
Sustained winds of 50 mph with gusts over 70 mph
Strong squall lines, micro-bursts, and tornadoes
$1.6 billion in property damage-
47 fatalities, including the last recorded "non-hurricane tornado"
related death
Almost all the tornadoes and severe weather occurred after dark, in
fact, it was very late at night while most people slept. This is common for
winter and spring storms, and reinforces the need for purchasing a NOAA
Weather Radio.

And Now For The Good News
There is an up side to the El Nino effect. For the most part, this effect
will bring some welcome changes in our overall weather patterns in winter
and.spring, including:
A wetter than average winter (we can use the rain!)
A cooler than average winter
Typically, the El Nino effect inhibits the "hard freeze" and deep cold
conditions
' .It's important to remember the El Nino is a naturally occurring phe-
nomenon,, The National Weather Service, Climate Prediction Center, and
NOAA monitor these, conditions with satellites, buoys, ship reports, and
many. other sophisticated systems. You can learn more about El Nino and
other weather patterns by visiting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration at www.noaa.gov, the National Weather-Service Tampa
Office at http://www.srh.noaa.gov/tbw/html/tbw/, or The National
Climactic Data Center at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/ncdc.html., Of
course; you can link to all these sites from our homepage, www.hard-
eecounty.net/eoc.

TIP OF THE MONTH
Family disaster planning doesn't stop when hurricane season ends!
Keep disaster supplies fresh, restock what you've used, and if you don't
have one, get a NOAA Weather Radio.

The soul has a taste for goodness, just as the body has an appetite
for pleasure.

ACKNOWLEDGING GOD 50 TIMES OVER and
SHere's something about our beloved United States of America that I
;ne er knet until a friend's e-mail message called my attention to it. Since
.it's something \worth knowing, and since it's especially appropriate to keep
.n mind at this time of Thanksgiving, I'd like to pass it along to you.
S.. It's simph this: all 50 states acknowledge the existence of God in their '
institutionss, and most of them more than two-thirds remind their cit-
i-zens that it's God who specifically deserves their thanks.
:; That may be an inconvenient truth for those intent on doing away with:
NII references to a Divine Being in our public life, but it's a truth nonethe-
ess. Those who hope to achieve that goal would have to start by amending
:the constitution of each state to delete any mention of God, under whatever
;name. To date, however, all 50 stand gratefully intact.
Most state constitutions make the point quite emphatically, declaring at
hie outset that the people of that state are "grateful to God" or "grateful to V
Almightv God." Arizona's is typical in this regard: "We, the people of the
:.tate of Arizona, grateful to Almighty God for our liberties, do ordain this OL
:Constitution ." A few others declare that they are "grateful to the ,
supreme e Being" or to "Divine Guidance" or "the Sovereign Ruler of the
universese," but all make essentially the same point.
SOther states adopted a slightly different approach, expressing "pro-
:ound reverence for the Supreme Ruler of the Universe" (Colorado) or the '
.fact that "through Divine Goodness all men have, by nature, the rights of
::orshiping and serving their Creator according to the dictates of their con- '
Sciences ." (Delaware). In each case, however, the reference to divine
utilership is there.
SThis is a point that would have resonated with the founder of The
:'hristophers. Father James Keller. Time and again he called attention to the
reliance e on God that our own Founding Fathers demonstrated repeatedly,
. :and he \ earned of the inroads being made by those who would gloss over (or
:pven eliminated that all-important part of our history.
SIn his best-selling 1948 book, "You Can Change the World" which
helped significantly in establishing The Christophers as a national presence
,4-- Keller pointed to the Declaration of Independence as an especially valu-
,able case in point. Not content with a draft that referred to the "Creator" as
40e, source of rights and to "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," its
writers added two critical phrases. "Appealing to the Supreme Judge of the
I world for the rectitude, of our intentions" was one, and the second conclud-
ed the document: ".. with a firm reliance on the protection of divine
'providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and
'-our sacred Honor"
SIn specifically referring to God, and to Him.as the source of all our
.blessings, all 50 states were simply following the direction set so many
*'years ago by our Founding Fathers.
This is something to bear in mind as we gather to give thanks. It's not
too likely, but if anyone needs a reminder as to where those thanks should
,'be directed, our state constitutions show the way.

Reclaimed Land Can Still Provide Benefits


~
,

J
r_


By ANGELA PETERSEN
For The Herald-Advocate
Central Florida has become
accustomed to the sight of ravaged
land, dirt piles and massive
draglines threatening the value of
its land, but change is delivering
benefits and opportunities for
mined land's future use.
Lands that once appeared unsal-
vageable and plagued with miscon-
ceptions are being transformed into
valuable economic and environ-
mental resources.
These mined lands are being con-
verted into parks, lakes and agricul-
tural lands.
"The mining industry is trying to
turn a disadvantage into an advan- -
tage," University of Florida geolo-
gy professor Guerry McClellan
said.
In the 1970s, Florida's Legis-
lature passed a law requiring phos-
phate companies to reclaim mined
land.
"Dozens of old phosphate mines
still look like moonscapes because
those properties were mined before
land reclamation became law,"
McClellan said.
A plan for the landscape and
future use of the land is designed
before the mining begins, and it is
the mining company's responsibili-
ty to return the land to those
planned conditions, he said.
Phosphate mines ha\e been the
location of lakes that were absent
prior to mining, said Mark Brown,
director of the Center for
En ironmental Polico at IF.
Land reclamation provides
Hardee County, a location which.
Shas no natural lakes. with public
lake access and recreation that was
previously una ailable.
These lakes contain abundant
fishing opportunities with popula-


tions of largemouth bass, bream,
speckled perch, catfish and the
occasional alligator.
"Lakes landscaped on reclaimed
lands are very rich and productive,
as well as deeper," Brown said.
Florida phosphate rock naturally
contains radon, creating the possi-
bility of environmental hazards.
"This is a limiting factor on how
the land can be used," McClellan
said. "It is usually converted into
open spaces, ponds, lakes and
parks."
"The radon concentration in
stirred land can get higher, so it will '
never be approved for homes built
directly on the ground," he said.
Homes built directly on the land
could be affected by radon, because
the radon could rise into the home
becoming trapped in a closed-in
area.
Before the 1940s, Florida homes
were built'on piers, and the breeze-
way under the house would prevent
the radon from directly entering.
As Florida !continues to rapidly
develop, the amount of land used
by the mining industry is a concern.
"Primarily Central Florida coun-
ties like Polk, Hardee and eastern
parts of Manatee are being affected,
but do they really want -develop-
ment?" Brown.said.
The mining industry is creating
opportunities to generate income
b. successfully reclaiming land.
Bienville Plantation, a renowned
hunting and fishing operation in
White Springs in Northern Florida
is located on former mined land.
The resort accommodates sports-
men and families with hunting and
fishing facilities \while generating a
large income.
Reclaimed land maintains an
ability to sustain agriculture and
w wildlife.

Some reclaimed land is really
good for citrus, Brown said.
Pine trees are commonly planted;
on reclaimed lands to rebuild a nat-
ural appearance because unlike oak.
trees, they require little water.
"Pine trees have potential eco--
nomic and environmental benefits,
but is it replacing diversity with
one.kind of tree, McClellan said.
Mining is an essential industry
that is making improvements by-
reducing its negative impacts on.
the environment.
"We can't do without these
industries," McClellan said.,
"Seventy-five 'percent of fertilizer:
in the United States is based on the
Florida phosphate industry.
"Mining companies have re--
duced their water consumption at:
least 50 percent and recycle 99 per-
cent of their water," he said.
"There has been a big transfor-
mation in the thinking of mining
companies," he said. "There is a lot
of (public relations) in good envi-
ronmentalpractices."
The Hardee Lakes Park is an
example of a recreational park that
was developed on reclaimed land.
The park supports spacious land
for campers and numerous fishing
tournaments.
Tommy Weems, a Wauchula res-
ident and Hardee Lakes Park visi-
tor, has camped with his family at
the park a few times and was never
aware that it was once mined land.
"It was a petty open place with,
plenty of trees for shade," Weems
said. "It looked natural."

2004 graduate of Hardee High
School, is a junior at the University.

lic relations. Her parents are

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
What happens when your proper-
ty rights run head-on into your
neighbor's objections?
That knotty problem and an addi-
tion to property tax exemptions for
low-income seniors were among
the items on the agenda for the
short-handed Hardee County Com-
mission last week.
After discussion, the three com-
missioners at the meeting post-
poned any decision on either. Com-
missioner Vice-Chairman Minor
Pryant was attending a meeting in
Tallahassee where he is the com-
rpission liaison. Commission
Chairman Bobby Ray Smith
opened the meeting, then left to
participate in the manual ballot
recount in the Vern Buchanan-
Christine Jennings election.
That left former Commission
Chairman Nick Timmerman to step
back in charge and commissioners
Gordon Norris and Dale Johnson to
make most of the motions. In fact,
one matter %as postponed because
Norris declared a conflict of inter-
est, leading t\mo commissioners

unable to act as a quorum.
The property rights issue came
up during the zoning portion of the
commission meeting. A Special
Exception to build a retirement
mobile home near North Wauchula
Elementary School was withdrawn.
Special Exception for Mark
Smythe to put a single-family
mobile home on half an acre off'
Apostolic Road was approved
without controversy.
The third' zoning matter, a
request for a Special Exception to
put a mobile home on 1.21 acres off
Kazen Road west of Terrell Road
drew opposition from neighbors
who said it would devalue their
homes, it was their understanding
there were deed restrictions limit-
ing homes to at least 1,250 square
feet, and that it would be a hurri-
cane hazard. A petition from sever-
al neighbors was presented by one
of the. adjacent landowners who
oppose a mobile home on the west
end of Kazen Road, which report-
edly has no mobile homes nearby.
Those farther off in the neighbor-
hood are buffered by trees-from the
home sites at the west end, said one
speaker.
Paul and Brenda Sutton's plan to
place a Homes of Merit mobile
home would not decrease values,
said their attorney John W. H.
Burton. Sutton said the type he has
chosen after much research is like a
site-built home, rated to withstand
135 mph winds.
Several other adjacent property.
owners added their voices. to the
disagreement. They said they
understood it met zoning require-
ments for a Special Exception but
felt their objections should be con-
sidered, protecting their rights and
their homes from devaluation.
That left commissioners to strug-
gle with the compatibility issue.

Cops For Christ
By Sgt. Barry L. Schnable
Hardee County Sheriff's Associate Chaplain


WHO'S YOUR HERO?
What is the definition of a hero? Well, the dictionary defines a hero a
"a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for brave deeds anr_
noble qualities" or as "a person noted for feats of courage or nobility of pur.
pose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life."
What are noble qualities? Noble is defined, "of an exalted moral oa
mental character or excellence."
Typically, we think of heroes as movie actors, athletes. music stars an
a little closer to home, as nurses, firefighters and cops.
Whatever or whomever your hero is, see if he fits the definition.
Is he distinguished? Does he display courage and bravery? Is he of
exalted moral character?
How many times do we hear about our supposed heroes being arrested
for drugs, committing immoral acts, pornography, abusing children
defrauding the public and more, or worse?
In the type of hero classes I listed, there are truly heroes in the world
ly sense. But the ones you always hear about are the fallen heroes whos i
sins have b6en found out. What do all these heroes have in common? They
are all in the public's e'e. And when one falls, we all fall, right? Wrong'
We all feel the effect of it because the public forgets, that one bad appk
doesn't mean the whole basket is bad. Their actions affect.all of. usa
People draw conclusions,and stereotypes people. such as saying at
nurses are mean, all music stars do drugs or all cops cheat on their spouse
es. It is.simplynot true, but people will lump us together w ith the few whd
do commit such acts. '
So, who should your hero be? Who should your children's hero be'?
"Hero" is also defined as someone who has performed a heroic aci
such as an officer who gives his life for his partner or some unknown cit-
zen. How about Someone who gave His life for everyone? What's the say"
ing, "Sacrifice the one to save the multitude?" "
How about a person %ho gave His life unselfishl\. willingly for every
one in the past, present and future? Yes, that's right. I'm talking about Jesu
Christ. -
And, by the way, did you see anything in those definitions about heroes
being arrogant or self-serving' I didn't either. Jesus was the most humble1
hero you will ever meet..
Matthew 20:28 or Mark 10:45 clearly tell us, "For even the Son of Man
did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for
many." That is the true definition ofa hero. ;
He was a servant just like \we are supposed to be. ,
One more definition before I close. Public servant: "a person who"
holds a government position by election or appointment." Servant: "a per-
son ho series others." '... ; .
I want to ask all the officers out there; Do you fit the definition of a
hero, of a servant? If you don't, it's very easy to do. We have plenty 6df
acronyms in law enforcement, so let's add one more to help you become a
true hero WWJD. \ which stands for What Would Jesus Do?
Read up on the character of Christ, and then in every decision youJ
make remember WWJD and I guarantee you will make the right decision
e\er\ time. Make Jesus .our Hero. and remember to serie not be served..- :
God bless \ou, and I pra\ that lou seek Him out to be your Hero. youTr
children's Hero and your children's children's Hero!

FARM-CITY Week

Nov. 17-23 with the Hardee County Farm Bureau


Andrea and Steve Johnson are the 2006 winners of the Florida Farm Bureau's
Outstanding Young Farmer and Rancher award. The Johnsons own Johnson Groves
and Farm located in Hardee and Manatee counties. Steve was recently elected to
Florida Farm Bureau Federation's state board. He represents District 14 which covers.
Hardee, Polk and Highlands counties.


Agriculture is vital to local economy
During this year's Farm-City Week, Hardee County Farm'
Bureau is pleased to recognize Steve and Andrea Johnson of
Bowling Green as the winners of the 2006 OutstandingYounig
Farmer and Rancher contest.
The Johnsons manage 3,232 acres in Hardee and Manatee
IFARM-CITY counties. Johnson Groves and Farm, Inc. includes cattle and
citrus with all aspects of the business being handled interna -.
ly. They also own and operate Johnson Harvesting, Inc., which is not only a
fruit brokering firm but also manages harvesting crews for their farms and.
others. Steve is an active board member of the Hardee County Farm Bureau
and now serves on the state board of the Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
Agriculture remains important in Hardee County where there are 1,142
farms on 346,191 acres. Total value of livestock and crops sold from Hardee
County was $166 million in 2002 according to the USDA's statistics.
Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation. Instead, the interde-
pendence of the two creates jobs, products, markets and relationships that
make our economy and nation strong. Join with us in recognizing Hardee
County agricultural producers and allied industries and the contributions
they make to the economy.


Food For Thoughti
From Florida's Frmners

GAM .,.QF-THE WEEK,
Wake rorest at Maryland
rt -


Next stop, J
don't pull out thie slide rule. The inath is real simple for both
teams this Saturday night when Wake Forest travels to
Maryland.
The Demon Deacons. who were picked to finish dead last in the
Atlantic Division. could find themselves in the ACC
Championship Game if they can defeat the Terrapins. The game is
truly a do-or-die proposition for a Wake Forest team that is
coming off a 27-6 prime-time loss to Virginia Tech, since another
loss would knock the Deacons out of contention for their first
conference championship since 1970.
Despite last week's 38-16 loss at Boston College. the Terrapins
still have a shot at putting together their fourth 10-win season in
six years. No matter what Boston College does Thanksgiving
night against Miani, Maryland could go to Jacksonville with a
victory over the Demon Deacons.
a Records: Wake Forest 9-2 (5-2 ACC Atlantic); Maryland 8-3
(5-2 ACC Atlantic). 8 Coaches: Wake Fores's Jim Grohe
(68-67-1); Maryland's Ralph Friedgen (49-22). I Series:
Maryland leads 40-13-1. U Kickoff: 7:45 p.m. E' Saturday.
STV: ESPN.
Key for Wake Forest: Get the job done up front. The Demon
Deacons collected only 62 rushing yards on 32 carries against
Virginia Tech.
Key for Maryland: A ground game. The Terrapins haven't
gained I(X) rushing yards in any of their last four games.

Key for Boston College: Defense needs to stay on the
offensive. The Eagles. who rank iftih nationally in turnover
margin, scored three defensive touchdowns against Maryland.
Key for Miami: The offense has to do its part. The Hurricanes'
defense ranks in the top 16 nationally in rushing defense, total
defense, scoring defense, sacks and tackles for a loss.

X Records: Florida 10-1 (7-1 SEC East); Florida State 6-5 (3-5

a bad Division I-AA team isn't anything to be proud of. Florida
put together its first complete game in some time last week against
Western Carolina.

Gators' array of playmakers? Chris Leak ranks 15ll nationally in
pass efficiency and has four receivers who average at least 30
yards per game receiving.
South Carolina at Clemson
a Records: South Carolina 6-5 (3-5 SFC East); Clemson 8-3 (5-3

1995 with a 52-7 win over Middle Tennessee.

Florida and 7 of9 against Middle Tennessee.

a Records: North Carolina 2-9(1-6 ACC Coastal); Duke I0-11

Virginia redshirt freshman quarterback Jamccl Scwell threw for
217 yards on 23-of-33 passing and ran for two touchdowns last
week against Miami. Jason Snelling is the team's top rusher and a
pass-catching threat.
East Carolina at N.C. State
Records: Fast Carolina 6-5 (5-3 Conference USA East); N.C.
State 3-8 (2-6 ACC Atlantic). a Coaches: East Carolina's Skip
Holtz (45-34); N.C. Stute's Chuck Amato (49-36). a Series: N.C.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well Football Fans, it is Thanksgiving weekend. Lots of turkey on the
,table with football on the tube is on the menu. The Tampa Bay Bucs have
;a rare Thanksgiving Day game with Dallas at 4 p.m. College teams play
:Friday and Saturday in the annual rivalry showdowns. There are several
-bowl scenarios that will play out this weekend. The following weekend will
. see several conference championship games.
* Of course, all this leads up to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,
Bowl Season! Any bowl destination for your favorite team is speculation at
'this point.The bowl folks will be filling the spots after these two weekends.
I Would anyone really want to see an Ohio State versus Michigan
'rematch for the National Championship? It would be cause to demand a
"playoff system which is long overdue. Gator Coach Urban Meyer, has stat-
'ed that sentiment and most fans would agree with him. There are several
'teams with just as much claim to playing in the title game as any Big 10
team that played a weak schedule. Would Ohio State be 12-0 if it played an
:SEC schedule? Would it be 12-0 playing a Big East schedule? It's ver
doubtful in either case.
There were many outstanding individual performances in college foot-
'ball this week. Louisville's Brian Brohm passed for 274 yards and two
-touchdowns against South Florida. Brigham Young QB John Beck threw-
,for 464 yards and four touchdowns in BYU's victory. Marshall running
back Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 261 yards and five touchdowns to lead the
;Herd to a win over UTEP. The best one-two punch of the weekend was
turned in by West Virginia All-Americans Pat White and Steve Slaton
-against Pitt. QB Pat White threw for over 200 yards.and ran for over 200,
:including two rushing touchdowns. Slaton ran for over 200 and had 160
;receiving while scoring five touchdowns. The Heisman Trophy, according
to WVU coach Rich Rodriguez, should be split into two pieces and given
'to White and Slaton. Considering their statistics and team record, it would
'be hard to disagree.
The Bucs played a good game in the victory over Washington. The
-Swami guaranteed a win by a 24-17 score. The final score of 20-17 was
-close to the prediction. The Bucs were better than the Jets, Packers and
:Rams all of whom were shut out this weekend. Chad Pennington, Brett
Favre and Marc Bulger, all unable to put points on the board in an afternoon
-is a head scratcher. Peyton Manning lost to Dallas on the same day. How
long to Super Bowl Sunday?

S Now let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare:
1. Florida at Florida State Rivalries can sometimes be a toss-up. In
:'his case, not even close in 2006. Gators defense adds insult to Jeff
;,Bowden's departure with a shutout. UF is a little better than Wake Forest.
Florida 33 FSU 0


2. USF at West Virginia Bulls have seven wins and a bowl game for
the holidays.That should warm them on the trip back to Tampa after Slaton
and White run up 400 yards on the ground. WVU 49 USF 10.
3. Marshall at Southern Miss -Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for over 200
yards against UTEP and scored five touchdowns. The Herd pulled out all
stops and will again this week to get their sixth win and be bowl eligible.
Marshall 38 USM 27.
4. Louisville at Pitt Maybe wishful thinking on my part but
Louisville will face a fired up Panther team who will want to win number
seven on senior day. Tyler Palko will lead the Panthers to a Cincy over '
Rutgers type victory. Pitt 33 Louisville 31.
5. Oklahoma at Oklahoma State Good solid rivalry game. Sooners
miss Peterson. OU 34 OSU 30
6. Boston College at Miami Eagles send Coker packing. BC 27
Miami 13.
7. Notre Dame at Southern Cal Trojans should roll over the Irish.
Notre Dame has a played a schedule that is Lame. The Irish are members
of the Big East for all sports except football. It is time the conference tells
Notre Dame to get in for football or get out. Southern Cal 35 Notre Dame
17.
8. Syracuse at Rutgers Cinderella saw midnight strike the clock
against the Bearcats. The national spotlight is now off the Scarlet Knights.
They still have enough firepower to handle the Orange. Rutgers 31
Syracuse 13.
9. South Carolina at Clemson Can Spurrier pull off a stunner?
Clemson 34 South Carolina 24.
10. Mississippi State at Ole Miss:- The Old Egg Bowl. Always an
entertaining game despite records. Both teams have improved over the sea-
son. Ole Miss 24 MSU 19.
11. Wake Forest at Maryland Both teams laid eggs last week. Wake
needs a win to face Georgia Tech for the'ACC Title and the Orange Bowl.
Wake Forest 31 Maryland 27..
S 12. Cincinnati at Connecticut Bearcats are bowl bound. They set
their goals and achieved them. They are the most improved team in the Big
East. UC 23 UConn 13.
'13. LSU at Arkansas Hogs looking ahead to Florida for the SEC
Title get stunned.This is a must-watch game. LSU 35 Arkansas 31.L
'14. Kentucky at Tennessee -- UK is going to a bowl. Its season is
made. Tennessee 38 Kentucky 17,
; 15. Georgia Tech at Georgia ACC versus SEC. No contest, right?
Georgia 27 Georgia Tech 20.
16. Tampa at Dallas Three games in 11 days? Bucs will be beat up
,for this one. Gruden will be asking the NFL about this schedule. Dallas 24
Tampa 14.
.17. Houston at New York Jets Pennington. and Jets redeem them-
selves for being shutout against the Bears. They beat New England on the
road and get shutout by Chicago at home? Guess that is football. Jets 24
Houston 17. :
18. Miami at Detroit Lions usually play well on Thanksgiving
Days. Detriot 23 Miami 16.
19. Denver at Kansas City good rivalry game. KC 28 Denver 24.
20: Philadelphia at Indianapolis Manning comes back strong. Indy
31 Philadelphia 21.

your enemies. Never mail them.

A HOLIDAY WITH PURPOSE "
I am concerned about the people of America and their lack of control.
We are coming up on the "holiday of eating." Now, I know that it truly is
the holiday of Thanksgiving, but all most people do on this day is sit in
recliners watching parades or footbae; and eat, Eat, EAT!
This holiday has lost its appeal to the heart of thanksgiving for most-
people. This holiday has lost its appeal to God as the Provider, the Giver of
all good things (Matthew 6:25-33; James 1:17).
This holiday has become about laziness and gluttony, instead of wor-
ship and thanksgiving, to many people in our nation. For instance, I care
across this poem; intended to be humorous but instead sickeningly telling!
'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned the dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees ...
Happy eating to all, pass the cranberries, please.
May your stuffing be tasty, your turkey be plump.
Your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious; your pies take the prize.
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.
No mention of God in this poem. No mention of thankfulness. No mein-
tion of a heart of gratitude turned toward a God of giving.
So let me challenge you his holiday. Turn to.the person-eating next to
you and let him know how thankful you are for him. Turn your heart to your
family and let them know that you love them. Turn your soul to God to
praise Him and give Him' the glory that only He is due.
Spend some time ;on your knees before you spend some time at the
table, and fulfill in this day that cause that is its namesake: Thanksgiving,!
I'm Telling the Truth!
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is
everlasting" (Psalms 118:1).

Boys Soccer Leads District


Look On The Bright Side
By David Kelly


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Although it's early in the season,
Hardee Wildcat soccer is undefeat-
ed in district action.
SThe Cats are dominating Class
4A District 10 to date with a 4-0
record. Last week they added victo-
ries over Braden River and DeSoto
to those over Sebring and Avon
Park.
, When they resume play after the
fall break, The Wildcats will host
;Mulberry next Tuesday and travel
'to Palmetto for a district game next


Thursday. On Dec. 1, they host Port
Charlotte, followed by a return
engagement with Braden River on
Dec. 4. They will meet the final dis-
trict opponent Sarasota Booker on
Dec. 5 at home.
At Braden River last Tuesday,
Hardee won 5-3. The first Wildcat
score came six minutes into the
game, at the 34.22 mark, by Alberto
"Chico" Rodriguez. Braden River
scored at 20:19. Another Rod-
riguez goal with 11:27 left in the
first half sent Hardee into the half-
time break with a 2-1 advantage.


Nearly five minutes into the sec-
ond half, senior Chico Rodriguez
score on a pass from his freshman
brother David Rodriguez. Chico
scored again midway through the
period. With 8:55 left in the game,
soph Roman Alvarez was crossing
left to right and took a pass from
Chico Rodriguez for a header into
the goal.
Braden River scored twice in the
second half of the very physical
game which saw Braden River
assessed three yellow or warning
flags.


School Lunches: The Votes Are In!


SBy BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
SFall is famous for its nationwide
elections, but another one went on
in elementary schools last month.
The votes have been counted for
j students' favorite lunch entr6e, and
the winner of the 2006 election is
Pete Pizza. This popular candidate
beat out such competitors as Rocco
Taco and Sally Salad for the covet-
ed title.
SThe theme of voting was shown
in all of the cafeterias countywide
with American flags and red, white
and blue decorations. Cafeteria


workers dressed for the occasion,
sporting patriotic clothing and
shirts with their chosen candidates
on them.
National School Lunch Week
was a big success across the entire
county, with each school having
over 500 parents attend. In eating
lunch with their children at school,
parents got a chance to see how
children are being fed and how they
are being taken care of.
Though it was through the atten-
dance of parents that made the
week a success for all, the real suc-
.


cess came from the staff of food
service employees that made every-
thing possible.
All members of the food service
staff in the county have been
trained in nutrition and the wellness
program that is implemented to
teach the children to "eat to live."
This is shown through the whole-
wheat breads used and non-fat milk
that teach students to make healthy
choices while eating.
It just goes to show that educa-
tion really\ does not just stop in the
classroom'


Hardee coach Ron Kline was
equally enthusiastic about last
Thursday's win over DeSoto, the
reigning district champs. Hardee's
"confident unity" was the telling
point as the 'Cats fashioned a
workmanlike victory. "It was a
good tuneup for the upcoming
Palmetto game in lest than two
year," said Kline.
Alvarez scored the first Wildcat
goal five minutes in .the half.
DeSoto shortly scored on a rebound
kick for the Wildcats. That left the
halftime tally 1-1. Hardee was
playing even with the Bulldogs,
who feature feature fast foot skills,
passing ability and are taller than
the Wildcats.
The first 15 minutes of the sec-
ond half remained scoreless, until
Alvarez fed junior captain Luis
Reyes for a goal. With 9:45 left in
the game, Reyes scored again.
Hardee's dominant conditioning
and speed was the difference as
Jose Alonzo, Jose Gutierrez and
Chico Rodriguez were able to catch
up and steal the ball from their
opponents.
Hardee's final score was with
just 6 minutes left when soph
Efrain Ruiz nailed a high arcing
shot from 30 yards out. It hit the
post and spun into the goal for the
youth's first goal of the season.
Other Wildcat players are
seniors Pablo Anselmo and Andrew
Cisneros (still on the football field.)
Chris DeLaRosa and Johnny
Huron; juniors Jose Castaneda,
Gilberto Gutierrez and Adam
Juarez; sophs Elisio Diaz, Jorge
Juarez. Francisco River, Domingo
Santiago and Isaac Vasquez: and
freshmen Jesus Aguirre, Ivan
Rodriguez and Martin Vega.

Great and glorious events which
dazzle the beholder are repre-
sented by politicians as the out-
come of grand designs whereas
they are usually products of
temperaments and passions.
-La Rochefoucauld


THANKFULNESS
How will we show our thankfulness this Thanksgiving?
There are many ways to show thanks. And in many of those ways we
don't ever approach our own feelings of thankfulness. Instead we respond
in programmatic ways that our parents or books or society says we should.
Oftentimes we are laughed at or questioned or are the object of bewil-
derment by others when we try to.show thanks in our own individual way,
which is why many of us don't show thanks in unique ways.
Writing a note now takes too long. Sending a card via the mail is
almost obsolete.
Making a homemade gift is sometimes seen as cheap instead of heart-
felt. Writing a song or poem is often confused with corny instead of caring.
Sharing your heart is often seen as weak rather than open and loving.
In order to give thanks I feel it has to come from the heart. How do we
share our hearts with those who might hurt it?
Easy! You don't care about getting hurt. You show people how you feel
and take the chance of being burned or angered or disappointed by the com-
ments of others. And when I say "chance," I mean accept the fact that oth-
ers will hurt you.
When you deal with people you deal with their messy lives and your
messy life. When the two mix, things get messy and people usually get hurt.
That is just to be expected.
However, in a life where there is always going to be hurt, there is
always room for healing arid loving and restoration and forgiveness and
thankfulness. There is also room for more anger, more hurt, hate, and unfor-
giveness.
How will you show your thanks this Thanksgiving?
We will either spend time being thankful to others or be so busy enjoy-
ing our "own desires" that we don't see a need to be thankful at all, or we
will be so disappointed;and so angry that thankfulness will never cross our
minds.
Every day I breathe I am very thankful. I am so thankful for life itself.
Many of you know that I'm adopted and thankfully so. My very being here
is something to be thankful about.
There are so many things to be thankful for in life. Our own lives, fam-
ilies. friends, homes. jobs, and possessions are all things to be thankful for
in this world. However, the one person we should be most thankful to is
God.
Without God it is hard to be thankful or to find anything to be thank-
ful about..
With God it is hard not to be thankful. It is hard not to think of others
first and yourself second. It is hard not to pray for people or want to meet
people's needs before you pray for yourself or meet your ow n needs.
Have you spent time praying a prayer of thankfulness to God for things
that have nothing to do with you? Have you prayed for others before you
start making a list for yourself? Have you made a list to God, and prayed it
out loud. of everything you are thankful for?
I challenge you to take time this holiday to do just that. Make a list of,
24 things each day you are thankful for and pray them back to God. Or
make a list of seven things and pray them back each week or make a list of

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

BEING SENSITIVE TO GOD
The real danger is not that you and I will rob a bank or kill someone.
The danger is that we will live insensitively. We will be absorbed in our own
successes and failures while all around us maybe right across the break-
fast table are people who are lonely, troubled and desperate. --
Growth in spirit is most often, hampered by a preoccupation with other
things, service, ideas and grand causes. Out of these things emerge a sched-
ule that keeps people busy from morning to night. They simply cannot pray
in simplicity like the boy Samuel, "Speak, Lord. They servant heareth."
Job provides us with a stunning example of sensitivity toward God.
Standing in the midst of devastation, he proclaimed, "The Lord giveth. The
Lord taketh. Blessed by the name of the Lord" (Job 1:20-22).
Job never forgot that he was a creation of God and that God had every
right to do as He pleased with him. This conviction kept him steady in
adversity and sensitive..
Joseph, sold into slavery by his wicked brother, wept when they
appeared years later to beg for grain in famine. How could he be so mag-
nanimous except by the vision of a magnanimous God who turned evil into
good and enabled Joseph to rescue his father's house?
Although Saul sought again and-again to kill him, David refused to
retaliate because Saul had been anointed king by God.
Sensitive to God! Is there anything more important?
Being saved isn't good enough! Jesus said to His disciples, "I have
called you "friends" (John 15:15). Let's advance, then, becoming ofie with
Him in thought and heart and spirit!

Plans Off

For MH Park

Near School
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The request to place a 286-lot
mobile home park near North
Wauchula Elementary School has
been \ withdraw n.
The first request for a Special
Exception for the retirement mobile
home park for residents 55 and
older was postponed from Oct. 19
to Nov. 16 to ""explore options to
benefit all parties concerned."
Instead of attending the delayed
second hearing, EHK LLC, owner
of the 68-acre property, w withdrew
the request in a Nov. 1 letter signed
by 'company managing partner
Robert Krause.
.Opposition to the proposed
mobile, home park at the intersec-
tion of Florida Avenue and
Metheny Road centered &mostly on
the 'proximity to the school at
which traffic congestion is a prob-
lem before and after school.
Other objections were to chang-
ing the single-family "quiet neigh-
borhood" in the Metheny Road
area.

75 YEARS AGO
Hardee Man Escapes' From
Raiford Prison: Sheriff C.S.' Dish-
ong on Monday received word from
Superintendent J.S. Blitch of the
state prison farm that Bernard
Whitten, life--term convict, had
escaped. Whitten will be remem-
bered by many in this section as
having shot and killed his wife in
1921.
Whitten escaped Saturday night
and Superintendent Blitch believes
Whitten's brother-in-law and his
brother-in-law's wife helped him
escape. They had been visiting him
last week and were in a clay-col-
ored 1927 Chrysler sedan bearing a
Tennessee license number. Whitten
was con icted of murder and sen-
tenced. .,

Nllaml Men Held Here Are Sent
To The Gang: Two Miami, men,
Bob Perry and Harvey Searcy, who
were arrested in Wauchula Monday
morning by Sheriff Dishong, have
been sent to work on the county
road. Searcy engaged in a fist fight
with Cody Smith at the latter's
home on South Sixth Avenue.
Smith proceeded to bloody his
head with the back of a hatchet,
according to the sheriff. In the
meantime, Perry, who was Searcy's
companion, had bought some gas
and left town without paying for it.
He was caught in Arcadia and when
a check was made it was found the
men were using a Ford license for a,
Stutz automobile. In liet.of a $25
fine, both men were placed on the
county chain gang.

Wauchula Will Battle Bartow
There Tonight: Facing two. hard
contests within a week, the,
Wauchula Wildcats journey to
Bartow tonight for their annual bat-
tle with the Summerlin Yellow
Jackets of that city. The game will
begin at 8 p.m. and will find the
Wauchulans in good condition after
several days' rest. .
The squad was given arrest fol-
lowing the Armistice night game
here with Fort Meade, and did not
report again for practice until
Monday afternoon. It was a long
layoff for Coach McPherson's
squad, but it is thought to have
given them a much needed rest after
a hard schedule of eight games to
date, seven of which were won.

50 YEARS AGO
Cats Trounced By Blue Devils:
The Hardee High Wildcats took a
25 to 7 shellacking from the Winter
Haven Blue Devils last Friday night
and wound up. their Southwest
Florida Conference schedule with a
winless 0-5-1 record for conference
play. The tie was with Lake Wales.
Winter Haven took the opening
kickoff on its own 26 and proceed-
ed to chew out a 76-yard touch-
down march that put them ahead 6
to 0. Speedy Grady Smith skirted in
for the final 13 yards. The Wildcats
then initiated a drive of their own
which carried deep into Winter
Haven territory, but a 15-yard
penalty" for holding and a.Blue
Devil pass interception halted the
drive on the Winter Haven 14.

Hardee High Cagers To Be
Inexperienced: Basketball practice
began in earnest last week as Coach
Dunning Terrell began the difficult
task of trying to build a new basket-
ball team out of inexperienced
boys. About 25 reported the first


day and only 18 boys are still out as
some of the boys, found it difficult
to correlate basketball with their
other activities.
Only two of these saw any action
'last year. They were Lance Whid-
den and Billy Anderson. The only
varsity boy returning this year will
,be John Terrell and at the present
writing, he is nursing a serious
Charlie horse received in the Fort
Myers football game. John, along
with Pat Counts, Terry Warren, Bill
Dickey and James Hinson, will
report Monday Nov. 26.

A pair of pre-season games last
week were experience for the short-
handed Hardee Wildcats.
"When I scheduled these back in
March, I had an idea I probably
wouldn't have my football players
in yet. I was looking at these as two
tough practices, better than at home
against ourselves," said Hardee
head coach Vance Dickey, in his

fourth year leading the Wildcat
five.
His prediction came true as the
Wildcat eleven are still in playoff
mode, while both Charlotte and
Sarasota had full squads for the
two-day tournament. Hardee lost
both games, with its combination of.
varsity and junior varsity players.
"We got beaten good, but accom-
plished a lot on where the guys
were individually. The boys played
hard and for the most part tried to
execute our game plan. There were
a lot of turnovers against the high-
powered Charlotte team which had
all its experienced starters against
our mostly inexperienced squad.
Hardee started the regular season
with a varsity-only game at Braden
River on Monday night, and
resumes play after Fall Break with
a pair of home games. Frostproof
comes in on Monday and Sebring
on Tuesday. Hardee travels to
DeSoto on Friday, Dec. 1. Games
the following week are at home
against Avon Park Tuesday and
Lake Region on Thursday before
going to Frostproof on Dec. 8.
Against Charlotte on Nov. 14,
Dickey saw the possibilities for his
junior duo Mark St. Fort and
Arnold Louis, both of whom played
summer AAU ball. St. Fort scored
in every quarter for 23 points,
including 'a pair of treys, a half
dozen deuces and quintet of free
throws. Louis added 17 points on
five deuces, a trey and four points
at the charity stripe.
Dickey used the opportunity to
get all his players in the game.
Junior Josh Jackson had six points
and classmate Alex Flpres four.
Both went to the Eckerd hoop came
last summer. Junior Pete Solis
added two points.
Other Wildcats getting into
action were junior Javier Felix,


sophs Lucas Juarez and Ladarius
Pace, and freshmen Ryan Blair,
Nathan Tomlinson and Charles
Allen.
Charlotte won the game 89-52
behind the shoot of Dago Pena with
34 points and Chris Stephenson
with 24. Five other players were in
single digits.
Also getting his first Hardee
experience was new varsity assis-
tant coach Jonathan Pippkens-
Smith, a first-year algebra and
geometry teacher at Hardee High.
He played basketball in high school
and junior college in New Mexico,
before coming to Florida four years
ago to coach both boys and girls
hoops at Walker Memorial
Academy. He and wife Ashlee, and
Daughter Savannah, who will be 2
years old in December, came to
Hardee County this summer.
On Thursday, Dickey, Pippkens-
Smith and co-coach Travis Bone
took their charges back to Punta
SGorda to play the Sarasota Sailors,
which started four seniors and a
sophomore.
Hardee started afire. St. Fort
tapped to Solis and the game was
on. Jackson sank a three-pointer


and St. Fort notched a long two.
Louis stole the ball, but Sarasota
took it back on an errant pass into
St. Fort.
Then the Sailors got moving,
running off five unanswered points
by inside men Andy Peterson and
Mark Dubois. With another St. Fort
shot, the Sailors were up 12-7 at the
end of the first period.
Flores opened the second period
sinking both ends of a one-and-one
as he was fouled. Sarasota subbed
frequently, keeping fresh bodies in
the game. By halftime, Hardee was
down 32-16.
The second half was more of the
same as Dickey eventually cleared
his bench and got everyone some
playing time. Gradually, Sarasota
coach Dan Oness also got his play-
ers in the game, one freshman anid
two sophomores joining upper-
classmen before the final 57-36.
Peterson was high for Sarasota
with 21 points, with seven other
players in single digits. Hardee
responded with 19 by St. Fort and
10 by Louis, all in the fourth quar-
ter. Jackson added five and Flores
two.


The only head of government in the last century to give birth to a
child while in office was Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto,
in January 1990. .

WEATHER SUMMARY
A cold front swept over the State late in the week of November 13 19.
Cold weather crossed from the Panhandle down the southern Peninsula'
which caused some regions to.experience light frosts. Despite the cooled
temperatures, harvesting progressed on schedule. Scattered showers
brought over two inches to Pensacola while other areas across the State
received nearly an inch of rain. Areas receiving over an inch of precipita-
tion included Carrabelle, Dover, Jay, Jefferson, Lake Alfred, Live Oak;
Monticello, Tallahassee, and Tampa. Most major stations reported temper.
atures from one to six degrees below normal for the week. Warm daytime
highs were mostly in the 70s and 80s. Cool evening lows were in the 40s,
50s, and 60s with a few areas in the 30s.

FIELD CROPS
Some cotton growers in Santa Rosa County have completed over 70 per-
cent of harvesting. In Jackson County, rains halted peanut and cotton har-
vesting. Peanut harvesting is expected to finish once the fields dry.out.
Peanut and cotton harvesting was delayed in Washington County due to
rains. Soil moisture supplies increased in areas receiving rainfall. Topsoil
and subsoil moisture supplies are rated mostly short to adequate with some
spots of surplus supplies across the State.

Surplus 2 0 8 0 0 1
VEGETABLES
Harvesting to meet the Thanksgiving demand continued at an active
pace. Warm days and mostly cool evenings aided crop development which
allowed field activities to progress on schedule. Growers plan on marketing
light shipments of strawberries within the next week. Cooler temperatures
have aided strawberry development. Tomato picking around Quincy is vir-
tually complete. In central and southern Peninsula areas tomato picking is&
increasing. Producers are picking snap beans, sweet corn, cucumbers, egg-
plant, okra, peppers, radishes, squash, and tomatoes.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition is very poor to good with most in fair
condition. The last of small grains for grazing is being planted. Stock ponds
have very little water despite recent rain. Unseasonably cold weather and
little rain is limiting forage growth. Recent rain has just kept the winter
grazing alive. Cattle condition is mostly good. Some ranchers are feeding
hay for the first time in several years and almost all livestock are receiving
hay and other supplements at this time. In the northern areas, pasture con-'
dition is mostly fair. Frost in the past two weeks has damaged pastures.
Cattle condition is fair to good. In the central areas, pasture is very poor to
good with most in poor condition. Due to the cold weather, recent rains
appear to be of little benefit for pastures in recovering from the dry fall
weather. Most of the cattle are in fair condition. In the southwest, pasture'
condition is mostly fair.

CITRUS .
A cool front accommodated by rainfall swept across the majority of the,
citrus'producing regions on Thursday bringig over an inch of rain to the.
center of the State and dropping nighttime temperatures to the mid to low"
40s in several citrus producing counties. The east coast continues to expe-;
rience very dry weather, receiving the least rainfall this past week at less,:
that one tenth of an inch.-Daytime highs have been in the mid-80s on sev-.
eral afternoons in all areas. In most citrus areas, the recent dry weather has:
caused growers and caretakers to continue regular irrigation .programs.'
Grove maintenance also includes ditch mowing, irrigation repair, and some
applications of supplemental miticide. Fruit quality on early oranges and
tangerines is being reported as good. Grapefruit quality is very good with
the large majority of colored grapefruit being picked for the fresh market,
and white grapefruit being picked fairly equally for both fresh and;
processed. Pickers are moving more hea ily into Sunburst tangerines this
time of year and wrapping up Fallglo tangerines and Ambersweet oranges;.
Other varieties being picked include early and midseason oranges, Navels;
and tangelos. Several packinghouses are open with about a dozen process-,
ing plants open and beginning field run operations.

Focus on the really important things in life.
Do not drink and drive.
Spend some time as a family talking about goals for the future, fam-
ily goals and individual goals.
Lead by example. Think about this saying: "Don't w\orry that chil-
dren never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you" -
Robert Fulghum.
Teens who learn anti-drug messages at home are 42 percent'less like-
ly.to use drugs.
Know what your children are doing, their activities and how they
spend their time.
Be involved in your kids' lives. It's not pestering, it's parenting.
Lots of kids get in trouble with drugs right after school, from 3 to 6
p.m. Try to be with your kids then, but if you can't, make sure your child is
doing something positive with an adult around: sports, jobs,'clubs, after-
school programs. If your kids have to be at home, make sure they are doing
homework or chores and not hanging out with friends.
Listen to your child. Ask open-ended questions that encourage con-
versation. Avoid questions that kids can answer with a simple yes. or no.
Make it clear that you are listening and trying to understand your child's
point of view:
When you set ground rules, involve your children in the process and
tell them why certain rules are important. "Just because I said so" does not
cut it. Remember to be specific and discuss the observable behaviors that
\ou expect from your children.
Parents are still one of the most powerful parts of any community pre-
vention effort. Help your children prepare for their future by being an active
and int oled parent. Clear rules and open communication reduce stress and
allow you to have a more peaceful holiday season.


WOW! A district championship, and now a regional championship
within reach. The Hardee Wildcat football team has found more ways to
win, the foot of Pablo Anselmo, the passing of Weston Palmer, the running
of Jimmy Cimeus, Jayquan Gandy P"d Herman Patterson, the receptions of
Jermaihe King and Onel Virgile.
And, yet it all boils down to teamwork, work ethic and desire, some-
thing the Wildcats have a heaping helping of. The unheralded offensive and
defensive linemen, defensive linebackers and backfield all step up each
week and make the plays they need to;
Hardee has the opportunity to beat Bartow tomorrow (Friday) for the
Region 3: championship. A victory would also propel the Wildcats into a
state semi-final game Dec. 1 against Belle Glade Glades Central or Naples,
probably at Belle Glade. The winner of that game goes to Dolphin Stadium
in Miami on Dec. 8 for a 1 p.m. game against the winner of the Region/1-
2 game to see who will be state champions.
Let's get behind the Wildcats for this final drive to the state finals!!
While the football Wildcats are doing well, let's not forget the soccer
boys, who are unbeaten in District 10 action. They have defeated Sebring,
Avon Park, Braden River and defending district champion DeSoto to date.
The only other district teams are Palmetto and Sarasota Booker, both strong
teams, but ones which can be beaten. And, the soccer team still doesn't have
its football players out yet.
.You can watch the soccer boys. and girls, in their first home games on
Nov. 28 at Wildcat Stadium. The girls play Lake Placid at 6 p.m. and the
boys take on Mulberry at 7:30.
The Hardeeigirls are getting better and better, no more 8-0 shutouts and
early trips home. They battled DeSoto to a 1-0 loss last Thursday and are
gelling as a team: They could use 'our support.
-. Basketball is also going on. Both are without important pieces to their
puzzle, The girls are. missing head coach Don Gray, who is recuperating
from quadruple bypass surgery and senior forward D.K. Davis with a knee
injury. The boys are without a bunch of football players.
Hardee girls won their first game of the season last ,week, downing
Sarasota Booker in the:Tornado gym. They-played at home against Braden
Riveron Tuesday evening. They'll resume regular schedules after the Fall
Break. ,
SHardee boys played short-handed with a combination of varsity and
junior %arsity players,as they began with a pair of pre-season games last
week, It was a good experience for all, especially the Wildcat "big men,"
Mark:St. Fort andArnold Louis, who will be counted on to pace the 'Cats
this season.

The only other: winter sport, girls weightlifting, begins with a Lift-A-
Thon fundraiser on Tuesday at the high school. Coach Jan Brutus has a half
dozen.returnees to anchor hopes for a good outing at sectionals and region-
als. ,. :

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


The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to V & W Farms, Inc.
The dairy site encompasses 1410 acres on the south side of State Road 64 about four miles west of Avon Park,
Florida. The dairy will have an annual average total mature dairy cow population of 2000 dairy cows consisting of:.
about 1580 lactating cows, 30 pot/cripple cows, 350 dry cows, and 40 springers. There will also be approximately
450 heifers, 86 calves, and 200 beef cattle on the dairy on an annual average basis. Flush water from the freestall
and feed barns flows to one of two primary lagoons (LAG I and LAG2). The milk parlor is flushed with freshwater.
LAG I and LAG2 gravity flow to a third waste storage pond (WSP). The flush water used in the freestall and feed
barns is recycled water from WSP3. Approximately 208,000 gallons per day of net effluent flow to the WSPs has to
be pumped to five sprayfields on-site on an as needed basis. Solids cleaned from the waste storage ponds and
cooling pond paddocks are temporarily stored on surrounding land that drains back to the ponds. The solids will
either be taken by a commercial solids handling company or will be used by a third party for land application at
agronomic rates. All non-contact roof runoff is diverted away from the wastewater system. The facility is located at
Latitude: 27 35' 04" N, Longitude: 810 35' 47" W on 8798 Highway 64 East. Wauchula, Florida in Hardee County.

The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at Southwest District Office, 13051 North Telecom
Parkway, Temple Terrace. FL 33637-0926.t, t6 .O~ :: ". ;'. ..

The Department will issue the permit with th attached conditions unless a timely petition for aniadministrative
hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The
procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may
petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information set forth below and must:be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of.
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlargement of the time for
filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled' to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,,Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Depaiiitment's action is based must contain the following
information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner, the name, address, and telephone number of
the petitioner's representative, if any; the Department permit identification number and the county in which the
subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department action; .
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle the petitioner
to relief, and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become
a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 11:23c

HOLIDAY STRESS
Tis' the season to be jolly!
As we enter this holiday season, one way to ensure a happy healthy hol-
iday is to be aware of the added stress the holidays bring to everyone.
Stress is one of the major contributing factors leading to substance abuse.
Oftentimes people set expectations that are unattainable for themselves and
others.
Stress affects everyone in a different way and often adults forget that
children feel the stress, too. Parents need to remember that young children
still need to get at least eight hours of sleep at night, eat a healthy diet and
have everyday guidelines reinforced. Older children and teenagers also get
very busy and have expectations that can.be unrealistic.
In this fast-paced life of the 21st century, holiday hustle and bustle can
make it worse.
Here are some thoughts to keep in mind and, hopefully, help set the
standard for responsible decision making. Recognize stress in yourself and
in those you love. Take steps to reduce the effects of stress on everyone.
Get plenty of rest and insist that your children do so as well.
Be flexible.
