Hurricane Season Starts Fr


By LAUREN RAULERSON
For The Herald-Advocate
Hurricane Season officially
arrives tomorrow (Friday).
Over the next six months, it is
important to be prepared for a hur-
ricane disaster. In fact, it is predict-


ed that this season will be one for
the books with as many as 17
named storms.
Andrea, the first of the approxi-
mately 17, has already come and
gone before the season has official-
ly started. Born in the Gulf, she


remained a tropical storm, less than
75 mph winds. Barry and Chantal
will be the next visitors.
The Hardee County Emergency
Operations Center (EOC) has made
a few improvements in preparation
for this year's hurricane season.


This year, the county will offer a
Pet-Friendly shelter. Community
members must register before an
emergency to be able to use this
shelter.
Applications are available online
at www.hardeecounty.net/eoc or at


400 YEARS


the Emergency Management Office
at 404 W. Orange St., Wauchula.
The shelter will be the old Hardee
Junior High School, though com-
munity members are encouraged to.
evacuate with their pets or contact a
local veterinarian which will board
the pet before evacuating to the
shelter.
The EOC has also made its com-
munication systems more efficient
by upgrading the computers and
using federal grant funds to pur-
chase the newest mobile satellite
phone system.
The county has taken several
measures to ensure the safety of its
community. However, community
members are expected to prepare
for emergencies such as. hurricane
disasters.
Emergency Management Direc-
tor Rich Shepard encourages local
residents to develop a family disas-
ter plan. Tell a family member or
friend who lives out of the area
where you are going to be in the
case of a hurricane.
Store at least a three-day supply
of home health supplies and three
weeks of medication. Keep an
emergency supply of cash and fuel
to service generators.
One of the main ways to prepare
for hurricane season is to take
advantage of the Hurricane Pre-


iday
paredness Sales Tax Holiday.
Beginning Friday, June 1 and end-
ing Tuesday, June 12, certain items
relating to hurricane preparedness
will have no sales tax.
The 2007-2008 All Hazards
Guide is also a great resource for
disaster emergency preparedness.
The guides are available in English
and Spanish and can be picked up
at local restaurants, grocery stores,
businesses, county offices and the
Emergency Management office.
A National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration (NOAA)
radio is also handy to monitor the
weather during severe storms and
power outages.
If a hurricane threatens Hardee
County this year, the county will
open its shelters. However, the
EOC encourages residents to evac-
uate the county and either visit a
family member or friend or stay in
a hotel which is a safe distance
from the impacted area.
As a last resort, shelters will be
available (see attached list):
Special needs shelters will also be
available for those with severe
medical problems, and those with
tenuous respiratory or cardiac con-
ditions requiring oxygen or con-
stant monitoring.

Herron, Neff Step Up To Plate


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A man who has served as an
assistant principal at Hardee Junior
High School for three years will
now take over its lead.
And a long-time teacher at
Hardee Senior High School will
move into an administrative slot,
filling the void left by the passing


of Assistant Principal Marsha Tim-
merman.
The Hardee County School
Board has unanimously approved
the nominations of Douglas Herron
as principal for the junior high and
Christopher Neff as assistant prin-
cipal at the senior high.
Herron replaces veteran adminis-
trator Mae Robinson, who is retir-


ing with the end of this academic
year. He was recommended for the
job by both Schools Superintendent
Dennis Jones and Robinson herself.
"You have a very capable admin-
istrator in Mr. Herron," she told the
board. "They always say train the
person you want to replace you,
and you have that in Mr. Herron."
Herron's role as principal will


officially begin on July 1. He will
be paid roughly $77,000 a year.
"I want to thank Mr. Jones and
the board for your vote of confi-
dence," Herron said in accepting
the position.
Herron had been a math teacher
at Hardee Junior High since 1989
before becoming an assistant prin-

State Waives Sales Tax


On Hurricane Items
By LAUREN RAULERSON
For The Herald-Advocate
Beginning tomorrow (Friday), there will be no sales tax on specific
items relating to hurricane preparedness.
The state legislature is encouraging Floridians to prepare for this
year's hurricane season and is waiving the sales tax on items from $10
to $1,000, such as batteries, candles. coolers and even generators.
These items will be tax free beginning tomorrow and ending Tuesday.
June 12.
Cell phone chargers and batteries, tarps, plastic waterproof sheeting,
storm shutters, radios, carbon monoxide detectors, ground anchoring
systems, tie-down kits. bungee cords, lanterns, flashlights, artificial ice.
ratchet straps, weather band radios and many other'items will be tax free
over the next two weeks.
Some items which are needed to be fully prepared for a hurricane are
not on the tax exemption list such as medicine, canned food and pet
food. Remember to collect these in addition to the tax free items.
"Don't miss this opportunity to prepare for this year's hurricane sea-
son." says Hardee Emergency Management Director Rich Shephard.

The Hall of Fame was created in
1991 to recognize and display the
achievements of individuals who
were students in the Hardee County
School System.
To be nominated, individuals
must have attended Hardee County


schools and have made, or continue
to make, significant contributions
to their communities and areas of
study.
Charles Frazier more than ful-
filled these requirements. Frazier
attended first through eighth grade

in Hardee County and then attend-
ed the predominantly black E.O.
Douglas High School in Sebring
where he played football. He was a
1958 graduate.
After graduation, Frazier imme-
diately enrolled at Florida
Memorial College on a football
scholarship. However, the next year
that football program was discon-
tinued and he enrolled at Albany
State College, now Albany State
University, in Georgia.
There, he became a member of
the football team and received a.
Bachelor of Science degree with a
dual major in the areas of Health
and Physical Education and Ele-
mentary Education.
He later returned to the universi-
ty and became the Coordinator of
the Upward Bound Program, orga-
nizer of the first baseball team and
an instructor in the Department of
Health and Physical Education.
Frazier retired from Albany State
University in 2001 after serving 39
years in Education.
After graduating from Albany
State College, he attended several
other educational institutions such
as New York University, where he
obtained a master's degree; Florida
State University; Albany Technical
College for an additional degree in
drapery and slip cover design; and
the University of Georgia.
In 1963, Frazier began his teach-
ing career as a science teacher at
East Pike Elementary School in

Some dramatic improvements,
some temporary dips, a few superi-
or scores, and work needed to
improve high school achievement.
That's a nutshell summary of the
2007 FCAT (Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test) scores in
Hardee County.
Take for instance, the 10th grade
where scores show only 42 percent
proficient or receiving a passing
Level 3 grade in reading, while 75
percent passed the math portion.
"Essentially, that means 58 per-
cent of the 10 graders still have five
more opportunities to pass the
FCAT, a requirement for gradua-
tion," said Schools Superintendent
on Tuesday afternoon.
He was mostly pleased with the
2007 FCAT results received last
week. "Overall, it has largely been
a good year for FCAT. As usual,
there are a few soft spots that we
have to attack for next year."
This is the first year for FCAT
science testing, with students in
fifth, eighth and 11th grades tested
in four areas: physical and chemi-
cal sciences, earth and space sci-


Upward
ence, life and environmental sci-
ences, and scientific thinking.
Fifth graders scored an average
of 303, compared to the state aver-
age 306. There was one fifth grader
at the top tier Level 5, with only
two of those at the state average.
Getting at least a Level 3 or passing
grade were 37 percent locally com-
pared to the 42 percent statewide.
The eighth grade scores were a
little more divergent, the state at
298, the Hardee district at 266.
There were on Level 5 students
locally and only one statewide. In
the passing level, the locals had 23
percent compared to 38 percent
statewide.
In 11 th grade, the district score of
289 compared fairly well to the
state's 302. Again, there were no
district Level 5 students and only 1
statewide. For Hardee, 26 percent
passed the test and 37 percent
statewide did.
I'm always reminded that
progress is never an uninterrupted
linestraight to the top. There are a
few valleys once in a while. We
will identify and work hard on
these," said the superintendent.

FRAZIER
Continued From 1A
Zebulon, Ga., where ne later
became principal. He also began
officiating basketball and football
in high schools and colleges, an
endeavor he continued for 25 years.
Frazier has been inducted into
the E.O. Douglas Hall of Fame and
the Albany State University Sports
Hall of Fame.
He married Betty Geiger in 1964
and they had five children,
Yelberton Frazier, Barbara Frazier
Dunnaway, Charles Frazier II,
Charlene Kenyatta Frazier and
Karen Stokeling.
Frazier was an active member of
Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Albany
where he served as a deacon and on
several committees. He was a
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.
member honored by its achieve-
ment award; a Mason of the Prince
Hall Masons of Wauchula, and a
member of several other organiza-
tions.
Frazier died in 2003. His wife
gave a speech in his honor at the
recent banquet and received his
award. Other members of his fami-
ly were also present.
Betty Frazier described her hus-
band as "hardworking, straightfor-
ward, ambitious, intelligent and
respected." She explained that he
put much emphasis on education.
She told the senior class that her
husband valued his faith more than
anything. She told them about her
husband's habit of reading his
Bible every night before he went to
bed and stressed the importance of
prayer and a strong faith.
Frazier joined the group of 32
individuals which make up the Hall
of Fame. Doyle E. Carlton Sr. and
Catheryn McDonald Coker were
among the first to be inducted in
1991, and last year Dr. Sylvia M.
Collins was inducted.
The Hardee County Hall of Fame
and Frazier's recent induction is
more proof that attending a/ small
school in a rural community-does
not limit one's potential for suc-
cess.



FCAT SCOltS
Continued From 1A
Jones said he was more
impressed with the long-term trend
line, where he saw some dramatic
gains for Zolfo Springs Elementary
(ZES) where the third grade read-
ing scores had gone from 48 in
2002 to 77 in 2007, and 52 in 2002
math scores had jumped to 84 by
this year.
Similar gains were seen in ZES
fourth grade math (42 in 2002 to 86
in 2007) and reading (41 percent in
2002 to 61 in 2007) and also in fifth
grade scores-reading 36 in 2002
to 71 in 2007 and math 44 in 2002
to 63 in 2007.
"I've got to say we're on the
right track and attribute the upward
trend line to making professional
development a priority, providing
teachers with more and better train-
ing in behavior management and
classroom instruction techniques.
"In today's educational environ-
ment, where accountability is king,
I'm very optimistic that the future
of the trend line is good. The teach-
ers are working hard and taking
advantage of increased professional
advancement offered to them to
increase their classroom abilities,"
continued Jones.
He noted that an entire.summer's
vacation for teachers is "a myth.
Very few teachers have the entire
time off," he said. During the sum-
mer they plan to work on weak
areas, identifying students who
need help and planning their cur-
riculums accordingly.
Teachers also attend a variety of
workshops, for instance the Heart-.
land Educational Consortium ses-
sion in Lake Placid where the
speaker will be a national expert on
curriculum.

Another half dozen teachers have
begun the tedious process to
become National Board Certifi-
cation teachers. One such group is
about to take its board exams, Jones
said.

school's Teacher of the Year in
2003, and went on to win the dis-
trictwide title that year.
He is a 1980 graduate of Hardee
Senior ,High School; and received
his bachelor's degree from Warner
Southern College in Lake Wales.
Herron earned a master's degree in

University of South Florida in
Tampa in 2004.
His instructional career has
included a 10-year term as the math
department chair, and over five
years as chairman of the school
improvement committee. He has
sponsored the Superintendent's
Scholars program, and was a
founding sponsor of the junior
high's Latin American Club. Her-
ron also was an assistant dean of
students.
He describes the field of educa-
tion as "a calling" for him.
Beverly Cornelius, who worked


alongside Herron as an assistant
principal under Robinson, told the
School Board she was pleased with
his selection as principal. "I'm very
happy foi Doug," she said. "I am
looking forward to it."
Neff had been a teacher at
Hardee Senior High for about 13
years before taking over the duties
of an assistant principal.
He is a 1990 graduate of South-
east High School in Bradenton, and
earned his bachelor's and master's
degrees at the University of South
Florida in Sarasota and Lakeland,

earned in May of last year.
Neff is a national board-certified
teacher. He also served as a coach
for the high school's Academic

He calls the field of education a
"legacy" left to him by his grand-
mother, a legacy he would like to
pass on to others.

Hanging It Up After 400 Years


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Fifteen Hardee County Schools
System retirees have gathered
plaques of recognition and acco-
lades.
In their activities, they have com-
pleted 400-plus years of service to
the students of this county. It varies
from the 38 years of retiring
Hardee Junior High School
Principal Mae Robinson to 15
years.
Honored at last week's School
Board meeting were Carol Barber,
Cheryl Bone, Gladys Cofield-
Whiters, Janie Evans, Doris Green,
Catherine Jackson, Ruby McClel-
lan and Sarah Jo McInnis. Craig
Bumby, Jerald Carlton, Judy Dean,
Linda Ford, Linda Tindell and
Lavonne Weeks were unable to
attend and will receive their
plaques shortly.
Robinson was feted at a surprise
reception at Best Western Heritage
Inn & Suites on Thursday after-


noon. Hired as a science teacher at
the junior high on Aug. 18, 1970,
Robinson went on to become its
Dean of Students in the 1980-81
school year. She went down to
Zolfo Springs Elementary in the
fall of 1989 to become its principal,
but returned to the junior high in
1996 to become its principal. She
was the first principal at the new
Hardee Junior High campus.
Schools Superintendent Dennis
Jones, who was a teacher with and
under Robinson, remarked, "I can
never remember a day when Mrs.
Robinson did not act with class,
dignity and professionalism.
"In addition to the above quali-
ties, I could add humility and
unselfishness because it was never
about Mae, it was always about her
staff and her school and the chil-
dren under her care. She didn't
want any honors. If her school did
well, she gave credit to those
around her."
At the reception, Robinson was

NOTICE OF POTENTIAL FUNDING AVAILABILITY

The Hardee County Board of County Commissioners is consider-
ing applying to the United States Department of Agriculture
(USDA) for a Housing Preservation Grant (HPG) of up to
$594,000. These funds must be used for one of the following pur-
poses:
o To benefit very-low income persons; or
o To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight;
or
o To meet other community development needs having a
particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and
immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community and
where other financial resources are not available to meet such
needs.
The categories for which these funds may be used are in the
areas of housing rehabilitation homeowner occupied, single-fami-
ly dwellings.

Hardee County would like to receive citizen views concerning the
community's housing needs regarding this grant.

Further information and a copy of the proposal is available at The
Hardee County Office of Community Development, Courthouse
Annex, 412 West Orange Street, Room 201, Wauchula, Florida.
For information concerning the proposed grant contact Judith
George, Grants Coordinator, at (863) 773-6349.

Any non-English speaking person wishing to inquire should call to
arrange for a language interpreter to be provided. To access a

presented with a scrapbook filled
with personal notes from friends
and colleagues to commemorate
her 38 years of service. Past and
present teachers presented her with
earrings with 38 diamonds, one for
,each year of service. Making the
presentation were Libby Deubner,
Amy Rigney and Doug Heron.
Among others applauding her were
Linda Strickland, Annette Zuniga,
Wendy Mayer and Susana Castillo.
Jones opened the School Board
presentation by quoting his favorite
poster in the next door teacher
training room. "The world is
moved not only by mighty shoves
of its heroes, but also through the
aggregate pushes of its honest
workers."
He added, "The folks of this
school system who go to work
every day do honest work and do it
wel ,, It's what drives any organiza-
tion. If you don't have them, it is
doomed to failure."
Jones said some of the retirees
had been part of the school system
for the nearly 30 years he has been
in the community and "it will be
different without you here.
Everyone has a unique set of quali-
ties and skills. We send you on your
way with our hopes and prayers for
a successful retirement."
The retirees honored were:
Catherine Jackson, 26.6 years,
eight as a tutor at Fred Dennis
School and the rest at the junior
high. She plans to take care of and
enjoy her four grandchildren.
Ruby McClellan, 25 years as a
food service worker at the junior
and senior high schools. "She real-
ly set the good tone here. She per-
severed," said high school
Principal Mike Wilkinson.
Sarah Jo Mclnnis, 29.5 years at
the high school, teaching French,
drama, ESOL, English and Mass
Media. She was noted for her com-
mitment and love of students.
Janie Evans, 25-plus years in
food service management at Wau-
chula Elementary, which was a pri-
mary shelter during and after
Hurricane Charley. With dedica-
tion, she remained there to provide
what anyone needed. Principal
Michele Polk came just before the
hurricane and found it a time of
bonding as she worked with Evans
serving tea to first responders and.
doing many other tasks.
Doris Green, 31 years in food
service at North Wauchula Elemen-
tary. At lunchtime. Thursday, her
school gave her a special send-off.
Principal Sonya Bennett said Green
will be remembered for her "ser-
vice with a smile. She was never
known to be without a smile or
helping someone."
Carol Barber, who has been with
the school system over 30 years.
She began as a terminal operator


(secretary), became a tutor, then
balanced family and her own
school to get a teaching degree. She
has worked at the junior high,
senior high, educational center and
Zolfo Springs and Bowling Green
elementaries. For the last 16.6
years she has been a teacher.
Gladys Cofield-Whiters, 32
years as a secretary at the education
center, Zolfo Springs and Bowling
Green elementaries and the junior
high, "one of the really nice peo-
ple."
Cheryl Bone has a total of over
21 years at the junior and senior
high schools. "She a true friend to
anyone in need in her sphere of
influence," said Jones. "I don't
know anyone with a heart as warm
as hers. We call her car 'the ambu-
lance' because she's always taking
someone somewhere," said Wilkin-
son.
Additional honorees were Linda
Tindell, 24 years, food service,
high school; Judy Dean, 15.6
years, bus driver in transportation
department; Craig Bumby, 35
years, teacher, high school; Linda
Ford, 34 years, secretary, most
recently at Exceptional Student
Education; Jerald Carlton, 16.6
years, teacher, high school; and
Lavonne Weeks, 30.8 years, most
recently as food service coordinator
at the district office.
And, so comes to a close, at least
400.6 years of service to the Hardee
County School System.

WEATHER WARNING SIREN TEST

The City of Wauchula is committed to protection of its residents; therefore we have updat-
ed the City's weather warning siren. We will be conducting a test of the system on Friday,
June 1, 2007 (the first day of hurricane season) at 12 o'clock Noon for one full minute.
Residents, are encouraged to inform family and friends of the test and to take the opportu-
nity to review your'household severe weather plan. Due to the recent tornados in Central
Florida we encourage each of our citizens to be aware of the danger that these storms can
cause.

If you hear the siren at any other time, and there has not been an advance test date notifi-
cation such as this, you should assume that an actual weather emergency is in progress
and seek shelter immediately. The siren will continue to sound in 30-second blasts until the


danger has passed.


There's a bunch of miscellaneous notes for this segment of my column
First is the upcoming United Methodist Men's annual Frank Zajicel
missionary benefit golf tournament. Church leaders from Wauchula an(
Bowling Green Methodist churches are looking for a few good men to par
ticipate in the annual tournament on June 16; beginning at 8 a.m., at Torre,
Oaks Golf Course.
Zajicek made his first missionary journey to Guatemala in 1991,
worked for two years with South American Missions in jungle village min-
istry. For the next 10 years he served the Wayuu Indian people in northeast
Columbia. In 2001 he married Luz Estela Ricardo and they have been
assigned to San Ignacio de Velasco in eastern Bolivia, working with local
church and community leaders.
To sign up for the tournament, which costs $40 per person and will be
a four-person team scramble, contact Charles Cannon at 773-6045, Torrey
Oaks at 767-0302 or the church office mornings at 773-4267.

Another thing coming up is the Wednesday Night Fights on ESPN on
June 13, featuring Wauchula's own Edner Cherry defending two of his sev-
eral lightweight belts. Plan now to be at home to see this.

News on Hardee grads..
The University of the Cumberlands, also known as Cumberland
College, in Williamsburg, Ky., announced last week that it has signed 2007
Wildcat grad Johnny Ray Harris of Bowling Green, to play for head Patriots
coach John Bland. Harris had an outstanding year defensively for the
Wildcats in the fall of 2006.
Ronnie Clark, a Hardee grad of over a half dozen years ago, is now
playing basketball in the European league on the Switzerland International
Team. In the finals recently he scored 42 points and had 19 rebounds. He is
maturing as a player and person, reports Nick Timmerman, who went to
Switzerland recently to see Ronnie play.
The young man is also getting a good look-see from both the Italian
and Spanish leagues and may remain overseas to play in those before
returning to his Atlanta home. He has an excellent 60 percent completion
on both three-point and two-point goals.

On the local level, Will Krause was selected to play on the state east
All-Star team in the 29th annual Florida Athletic Coaches Association -
Pepsi All-Star Classic at Firemen's Field, where numerous major league
scouts and others were on hand to look for local talent. The West All-Star
team won the event 9-2.
Hardee Wildcat coach Steve Rewis was selected as head coach for the
East team, with his father Hoppy Rewis, head coach for the Sebring Blue
Streaks, as his assistant. Besides Krause, the East team included Chaz
Abeln, Charley Peck and J.C. Schoop. Krause hopes to attend either
Clemson or the University of Florida and play baseball.

Hardee may have lost its spring classic football game at Lake Wales,
but it accomplished what the coaches and athletes wanted. First-year head
coach Tim Price and his staff had the opportunity to get a good look-see at
all of the 60-plus players who came out for spring practice, and all the play-
ers got a chance to get on the field in a game situation and show what they
could do.
Now, there are three conditioning sessions per week, Tuesdays,
Wednesday and Thursdays to improve stamina and muscle during the sum-
mer months.
Information from community and school athletic events is always welcome.
Please call The Herald-Advocate (773-3255) or e-mail me at news.heral-
dadvocate@earthlink.net with news for this biweekly column. News will be
included as soon as time and space allows.

From left are John Maddox, who led the Pledge of Allegiance; guest speaker Circuit Judge
Marcus Ezelle; and post commander Frank Mancini, who read President Abraham Lincoln's
Gettysburg Address.


The Gettysburg Address
Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon
this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to
the proposition that "all men are created equal."
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that
nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long
endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war We have come
to dedicate a portion of it, as a final resting place for those who
died here, that the nation might live. This we may, in all propriety
do. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot conse-
crate, we cannot hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and
dead, who struggled here, have hallowed it, far above our poor
power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long
remember what we say here; while it can never forget what they
did here.
It is rather for us the living, we here be dedicated to the great
task remaining before us... that from these honored dead we take
increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last
full measure of devotion.. that we here highly resolve that these
dead shall not have.died in vain, that this nation shall have a new
birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people,
for the people shall not perish from the earth.


Circuit Judge Marcus Ezelle was the keynote speaker at the
annual Memorial Day Service held at American Legion Herger
Williams Post No. 2.

In regards to calories the most
important factor for weight control
- donuts vary. Yeast or raised
donuts usually contain from 170 to
270 calories each. But the denser
cake donuts can run from 290 to
360 calories, while cream-filled
options tend to be 300 to 390 calo-
ries each.
Contrary to what you might
expect, muffins are rarely lower in
calories. The 3-inch muffins grand-
mother made had only 120 to 160
calories. But today's giant bakery
muffins contain from 340 to 630
calories each, without any butter or
other spread.
Bagels, on the other hand, can
have fewer calories if you are
careful about portion size. The 2
1/2-inch "mini-bagels" have about
72 calories. But 4 1/2-inch deli
bagels contain 300 to 380 calories
each without any cream cheese.
Beware of "reduced-carbohydrate"
bagels. In at least one such product,
te amount of fat is increased, so
tiAre are as many calories as in a
regular bagel.
The health concerns about donuts
extend beyond calories, however.
Most donuts have from two to five
grams of saturated fat and two to
five grams of trans fat. That's a
quarter to one-half the recommend-
ed daily limit for saturated fat.
Unfortunately, the bakery
muffins for sale are hardly better.
Most donuts have from two to five
grams of saturated fat and two to
five grams of trans fat. That's a
quarter to one-half the recommend-
ed daily limit for saturated fat.
Unfortunately, the bakery
muffins for sale are hardly better.
Most contain from 11 to 27 grams
of total fat. Of that total, 2 to 8
grams are saturated fat. Although
the trans fat content of muffins is
extremely low in most cases, the
total saturated fat plus trans fat of
giant bakery muffins is only slight-
ly less than donuts. Reduced-fat
muffins are usually a better option.
They have only 2 to 5 grams of total
fat, and only 0 to 2 grams of that is
saturated fat. And unlike other


reduced-fat products, the sugar con-
tent in these muffins is generally the
same as in regular muffins. Calories
remain in the 300 to 400 range.
Bagels are another good choice
for limiting total and saturated fat.
Even those big deli bagels usually
have no more than 2 grams of total
fat and only a trace of saturated fat.
Bagels with cheese or chocolate,
however, can hold as much saturat-
ed fat as a donut.
Of course, the fat content of
bagels is heavily influenced by the
topping. About two tablespoons of
regular cream cheese add around
100 calories and 6 grams of saturat-
ed fat. This will make your bagel
the saturated plus trans fat equiva-
lent of a donut and the calorie
equivalent of one or two donuts.
Light cream cheese is a healthier
topping with 90 calories and 5
grams of saturated fat, but peanut
butter is even healthier. Although
two tablespoons of peanut butter
has 185 calories, the fat content has
a better makeup with only 3 grams
of saturated fat and just a trace of
trans fat. Because of the protein, a
peanut butter bagel should 'satisfy
your hunger for a long time, too,
while donuts probably won't.
If you choose carefully, bagels
offer another advantage: nutritious
whole grains. But you will need to
look for whole-grain bagels closely.
Bagels with a "whole wheat" label
come from whole grains, but "nine-
grain" and "multi-grain" bagels
may not. To know for sure, look at
the list of ingredients. A whole
grain should be the first item. If you
see just the word "wheat," the prod-
uct is mostly made with refined
white flour.
Contemplation often makes life
miserable. We should act more,
think less, and stop watching
ourselves live.

If you make it plain you like peo-
ple, it's hard for them to resist

The Hardee County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday night hosted a
patriotic salute to the American military troops at a steak dinner at the local
National Guard Armory. About 175 people attended.
Local troops were honored, and the special guest speaker was our U.S.
Rep. Vern Buchanan. The coordinator was local GOP chair Erica
Scheipsmeier. Look for more coverage and pictures in next week's Herald-
Advocate.
On May 28 The Tampa Tribune stopped distributing its daily newspa-
per in Hardee County and two other counties. It was quite a shock to
Hardee's estimated 600 home delivery and 120 rack customers.
The Lakeland Ledger originally planned to stop distributing in Hardee
County as well on May 28 but had a change of mind. The Ledger, which
distributed about 253 issues daily, has stopped its home delivery but is
keeping its rack sales in Hardee.
The Ledger has about 26 racks in Hardee County, including Wal-Mart,
Stop N Shop, Dollar General, Pioneer Restaurant, B&G Grocery, Presco,
Sellers, two Post Offices, Patches, J&R Grocery, Wauchula Supermarket,
Circle K, Preston, Florida Hospital, Double J Restaurant, The Herald-
Advocate, Hess, Winn-Dixie, and BP. There are also seasonal racks at var-
ious RVparks.
Possible future Ledger rack locations are King Fries, Country Cooler,
Driver's License Office, Nicholas' Restaurant, Bread Board, and Hanchey's
Carpets.
For more information call Ledger circulation director Sam Diaz at 863-
802-7200,
Hardee County needs to be served by at least one daily newspaper.
Someone once said reading a good daily newspaper is a poor man's college
education.
The Herald-Advocate this time of year sells right at 5,000 copies a
week, with winter sales about 300 higher.

Young At Heart Honored


The annual "Young At Heart"
reception was held on May 11 at
the Catheryn McDonald Senior
Center in Wauchula. The event is
sponsored by the Hardee County
Council on Aging during the month
of May, Older American's Month,
to recognize and honor Hardee
County's senior residents.
Ann Martin, Executive Director,
of the Hardee County Council on
Aging, welcomed everyone. Rev.

Hardee Help Center, led the invo-
cation and Mr. Jack Clark,
President of the Hardee County
Council on Aging led the flag
salute.
Plaques were presented to Phil
Glorius, Grace Glorius and
Imogene Gilliard, all aged 93, and
Katie Williams, age 89. All four of
these outstanding seniors were rec-
ognized for their 15-plus years of
dedication and service as Board
Members for the Hardee County
Council on Aging.
The winners of the "My Favorite
Older Person" essay contest were
present to read their winning

ducted in the fifth-grade classes of
all elementary' schools in the coun-

Tim Davis, minister of music at
First Baptist Church of Wauchula,
provided the entertainment for the
event.
The winning essays are printed
unedited below:

CLARENCE BOLIN
by Kramer Royal
First Place Winner
My favorite older person in the
world is my Pops. My Pops is my
favorite older .person because we
go fishing together; he is a very
generous person and we do fun
things together. I love doing these
things with my Pops all the time.
The first thing I love doing with
my Pops is fishing. We always go
fishing together at rivers, lakes and
ponds. I remember once we were
fishing on Lake June in Lake Placid
at noon on a June day. We were
fishing close to the weeds and I cast
my line right in front of them. Then
I reeled slowly, then something
jerked real hard. Then I called my
Pops and said, "I got something
Pops!" He said, "I caught the
weeds." Then all of a sudden an
enormous bass jumped out of the
water. I knew Pops was proud and
it was more special because he was
with me.
The next reason my Pops is my
favorite older person in the world is
that he is a very generous person.
He has shown me how to be gener-
ous by watching him help my great
grandmother do things while she
was alive. He helped her get round
after surgery and got her stuff, such
as drinks, pills and her clothes. He

also helped he at other times when
she felt happy and rejoiced. He's
also generous to people who are
going through a hard time with a
death or a family crisis. He also
helps people who have gone
through many obstacles in their
childhood or adult life.
The last thing I love to do with
my Pops is having fun together. I
like to play all kinds of sports with
him, like basketball and baseball. I
also like to build things out of
wood, like forts and birdhouses.
But my favorite fun things to do
together is to grab a bag of Lay's
chips or popcorn and sit in a reclin-
er and watch John Wayne movies. I
remember when I was little I would
climb in Pops lap and we would
watch a John Wayne movie like
"The Quiet Man," "Eldorado" and
"Hellfighters." But our favorite is'
"The Green Berets." We must have
seen it hundreds of times, but it
never gets too old for us.
I've just written about my
favorite older person. It's hard to
find the right words to describe
Pops, my Grandpa. You just have to
meet him in person to understand
how special he is to me. My Pops
name is Clarence Bolin, and when
you meet him, you will know why
he is my favorite older person.

GRANNY BECKY
by Haley Andrews
Second Place Winner
My favorite older person is my
Granny Becky. She died a few
years ago. One reason I looked up
to her was because she was nice
and kind, also because she helped
others and she let me hunt Easter
eggs there.
My first reason I look up to her is
because she was very nice and
kind. Whenever I would come over
to her house, not too far from our
church, she would hug and kiss me.
She was an old country lady who
wouldn't put up with any nonsense:
The reason I like her was because
she didn't pinch my cheeks and
slobber all over me. That's why I
liked her.
Second, I looked up to her
because she helped others. When
somebody was sick, she'd help.
When someone got hurt or cut,
she'd be there to help. When others
that had died that she knew, she'd
go and summon the loved one's left
behind. She was great.
My last reason I looked up to her
was because when Easter rolled
around, we were over there eating
and hunting eggs. She'd stand there
and watch us hunt for those eggs
and gaze at us having so much fun
and not arguing. She loved us so
much and whenever we were sit-
ting at the table before finding the
eggs, we would listen to her and
talk about the good things that had
happened.
That's why I wrote this story to
explain why I looked up to her.
Three reasons are because she was
nice and kind, helped others and let
us hunt eggs. I loved her.
MY GRUMPY
by Kayleigh Johnson
Third Place Winner
I would like to introduce you to
one of my favorite older people. At
85 years young, my "Grumpy," as I
call him, never takes life too seri-
ously. There may be a shuffle in his
step and a stoop to his shoulders
but he always has a kind word and
a chuckle for everyone he meets.
From my earliest memory, my
great-grandfather has called me
"June Bug." In fact everyone in the
family has a nickname lovingly
given to them by Grumpy. I, like
everyone else, am fiercely protec-
tive of my special name. Recently
Grumpy made an elaborate corner
shelf for my knickknacks. This tal-
ent to make beautiful things out of
wood is just one of the things I
admire about this man. Another
trait he has and one I hope to inher-
it is his ability to plow through
life's problems. From the top of his
wide brim gray hat, to the tips of
his well worn black boots, Grumpy
is unique, an American original. He
will always be one of my favorite
older people.

CARL FRANKLIN
HENSLEY
by Daniella Patterson
Third Place Winner
My favorite older person would
have to be my Grandpa. My grand-
pa past away when I was four, I
don't remember much, just the spe-
cial memories that we had. My


grandpa was the best. He always
helped others, but he was always
there for me. Any man can be
called papa, but it takes a special
man to be called grandpa. He was
the one that helped my learn to ride
my first bicycle. My grandpa plant-


ed a tree for me, and now that tree
is grown. I call that tree
Wildflower, because my grandpa
had the most bluest eyes you've
ever seen, and they glowed like
bright blue diamonds. One special
memory that I remember is he
would take me down the road on
his lawnmower every single day to
see cows in the field. Every now
and then I will cry. At the funeral I
remember that the song they played
was "If You Could See Me Now."
My church sings that song often for
memories of my grandpa, which his
name is "Carl Franklin Hensley."
Everybody would cry when they

played that song. That just tells you
how much my grandpa was appre-
ciated. I've already started crying
while writing this story. But I can't
help it, I just love him so, so much.
What can I say, he was great. My
grandpa had very small eyes and a
very small mouth. When my grand-
pa smiled it would show his dim-
ples, and I loved that about him.
My grandpa would be 84 years old,
he past in 2000, when he was 77
year old. My grandpa was a
Christian man so I don't have to
worry about him that much. That is
why my grandpa is my favorite
older person.

MY GRANDMA
by Michael Albritton
Extraordinary Achievement
Award
My favorite older person is my
grandma. She takes care of me
when I am sick. She asked God to
make a miracle so that I can see.
She prayed every night that I could
see better and better. She helps me
with my homework. She looks after
me when I am riding my bike, she
waits until I get to the post office
then she goes inside because she
knows I am safe with other kind.
She makes sure I have the right
safety equipment for my bike.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

"SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND!"
We readily agree with the practical wisdom in this statement. If you've
lost something, you're not likely to find it unless you get busy and start
looking in all the usual places: desk drawers, the closet, the bookcase, the
garage, etc.
A good beginning might be to ask another family member if they have
noticed the missing article tucked away somewhere.
But this statement in Scripture (Luke 12:31) refers to finding God!
How in the world is a person to do that?
Let me suggest a few time-honored ways:
(1) Consult the classics. Read the lives of St. Augustine, Francis of
Assisi, Brother Lawrence, St. Terese. These books and others are "classics"
because they tell so well the search for God that others have made. Why not
benefit from their examples?
(2) Go to church. Get to know some of the Lord's present-day saints.
Ask them to share with you their own personal search for God. You may
receive some valuable advice.
(3) Read the Bible regular. This is God's holy word. Love it.
Memorize it. Apply it. Remember that the royal road to God is not discus-
sion and study but obedience.
(4) Prayer. I admit that this may seem like a wilderness for a beginning.
However, your perseverance will be rewarded. And "practice makes per-
fect." Talk to God as a Father. Believe that He listens and that He wants
nothing more than to reveal His heart to you!

Honest Attorney & Other Oxymorons
Ninety-nine percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name.
-La rry the Cable Guy


Oxymorons are fun. Some of my favorites are jumbo shrimp, pretty
ugly, living dead, exact estimate, deafening silence, freezer burn, genuine
imitation, business ethics, ethical politician, corporate conscience, govern-
ment organization, federal budget, military intelligence and dare I say it'?
- honest attorney.
Once I audited a course in criminology at the University of South
Florida in Sarasota. Sgt. Mike Yance, a homicide detective, taught the class,
which met for three hours every Monday night.
Every night Sgt. Yance showed videos, then opened the floor for ques-
tions and discussion. A lot of what-Iearned was disturbing. If ignorance is
bliss, knowledge can be unnerving.
Mike, as Sgt. Yance asked us to call him, showed us case after case
where violent criminals with long rap sheets were turned right back out on
the street. One case in particular still haunts me.
A career criminal whose crimes included battery, armed robbery, child
molestation, rape, torture and murder was back on the street. One week
after his release he climbed a fence near the rear of a gated community,
dropped down into the back yard and hid behind some shrubs near a swim-
ming pool.
The lady of the house was home alone. When she came outside, the
man attacked. For hours, fueled by crack cocaine, he satisfied his twisted,
sadistic fantasies. Finally, he slit her throat.
He was arrested three hours later in a bar half a mile from the house.
He confessed, but due to a technicality, his attorney had the case dismissed
before it ever got to trial. Again, he was back on the street.
In the documentary of this travesty, a reporter confronted the criminal's
attorney. "You knew he was guilty. How could you send such a monster
back out into society?"
The lawyer smiled.
"I was just doing my job."
Later the same reporter questioned the judge. "How can a thing like
this happen?"
The judge.shook his head. "Unfortunately, the truth plays a very small
part in courtrooms today. It's a game in which one lawyer tries to outsmart
the other."
Violent criminals walk free every day because of technicalities;
unscrupulous lawyers; weak-kneed, liberal, preening judges; and a general
loss of ethics and honor throughout the entire judiciary system.
One night on "The O'Reilly Factor," Bill O'Reilly spoke with a pub-
lic defender regarding Alejandro Avila, alleged killer of 5-year-old
The laws of conscience, which
we pretend to be derived from
nature, proceed from custom.

youth summering at Campobello '
Island in New Brunswick, .

Samantha Runnion. O'Reilly asked his guest if he were appointed to defend
Avila, would he do so'?
"Of course," replied the lawyer. "I would have to."
"No, you wouldn't," said O'Reilly. He cited a statute that says should
an attorney find a case sufficiently repugnant, he call refuse it.
This lawyer scratched his three-day stubble.
"In America everyone in entitled to a defense."
"All right," O'Reilly said, "but what if you take the case and, private-
ly, Avila confides in you that he has molested dozens of-little girls and
he also admits torturing and murdering Samantha Runnion would you
defend him then"
"In this great country even the guilty are entitled to a defense."
"So knowing your client molests little girls, knowing he brutalized and
murdered Samantha Runnion and, if acquitted he'll do it again, you'd still
do everything you could to set him free?"
"Of course I would. It's my job."
O'Reilly leveled his gaze at the man.
"That, sir, is repugnant."
"It's our system," the lawyer replied smoothly. "It's the best one in the
world."
There are thousands of cases frighteningly similar.
"Godfather" author Mario Puzo wrote, "A lawyer can steal more
money with a briefcase than any gangster with a gun."
One of Shakespeare's characters declaimed, "The first thing we need
to do is kill all the lawyers!"
Puzo was right. But Shakespeare's solution is a bit extreme. If we kill
all the lawyers, who will we hire to help us beat the rap?

Shanna Crenshaw Couture

Reports From North Carolina


Dear Editor:
A couple of times since my move
to North Carolina, I have spoken
with you by phone, updating you
on my condition since a car wreck
that I had been involved in. Now, I
would greatly appreciate it, ifu yUt1-
would be so kind as to run this "
ter in your paper'so that the good
people of Hardee County will know
not only how I am but where I am!
I moved off without telling very
many people at all. Thank you for
the letters that you have placed in
the paper for me over the years, and
I wish you all many blessings from
God.
January 31, 2005, a night that
changed my life forever! I was
going home after a long day of dri-
ving, doing my normal job, and all
of a sudden, in an instant, I was ft'
never be the same again, although
we didn't know yet..
I was headed southbound on
Highway 17 and after starting to
turn right onto REA Road, a big
work van came flying up from
behind me and he told the trooper
that he knew he was going to rear-
end me, so instead of going in the
left hand lane and going around me

(which was clear), he went to the
right, in the median, T-Boned me
on the passenger side, spun me into
a vehicle that was sitting there
waiting to go eastbound, and spun
me totally back southbound again. I
said all of that to say this:
,When the paramedics got there, I
know they didn't really think I was
hurt that bad. I heard the remarks a
SQuple of them made. Then when I
got to the emergency room, the
doctor and the nurses were nice, but
I overheard them saying it was just
a muscle sprain or strain. How
wrong they were, how traumatic of
a life's change this has been not
only for me, but for my family as
well, and not only physically but
emotionally.
When I got home for days, I
could not walk more than itty-bitty
little baby steps, and that was hold-
ing on to something or someone
and walking very slow. I was in
excruciating pain. But I was alone.
I was on my own and had to pay my
own bills. I tried to fight the pain
and get back to work. But I could-
n't.
Finally, I decided I needed to go
see a chiropractor. They treated me
for quite awhile and had me on pain
pills and muscle relaxants. But con-
trary to what some may think, I did
not (and still do not) want to be on
that. I wanted to be working. I
loved my job, I loved the people I
met everyday, and even the people
I worked for.
But even with the medicine and
the chiropractor's treatments I was
still in agony. So finally they decid-
ed to send me for MRI's. And you
will never believe what they said.
They did one of my head, neck
upper middle and lower back, and
the outcome was that every disc in
my neck and back except for two
are either flattened, protruding or
bulging and my spine was very
curved. I have a compressed nerve
in my neck that makes my arms and
legs go numb and it makes my left
eye twitch uncontrollably. Some-
times it only does it for a couple of
seconds, but sometimes it does it so
long my face draws up.
When my arms and legs go
numb I fall. Sometimes if I am sit-
ting down or laying down and it
happens, I just don't get up until it
passes, but there are a lot of times
that it happens when I least expect
it and I fall. I have fallen so much,
that I could not begin to tell you
how many times there have been.
Needless to say, I have had a
drastic lifestyle change. Used to, I
could work. Now, I get disability.
Used to, I could stand at my sink
and wash dishes, or at my stove and
cook, at my bed to change the
sheets and make it, or stand to
sweep and mop or vacuum my
floors, but all of those things are
now done on a chair on wheels so

that I can scoot around the house on
it. It used to be hard to sweep sit-
ting until I found a short broom,
now, it's not too bad. Used to, I
could go to Wal-Mart or any other
store I wanted to and walk around
and look or shop, now when I go in
I can't do nothing if there's not one
of those electric carts there for me
to ride in.
Used to I could go to the beach
and walk in the water's edge and
collect sea shells and smell the salt
water,,and hear the waves crashing
and relax at the beauty of the ocean.
Now I can only dream about it.
Without being in unbearable,
excruciating pain, I cannot stand
for more than maybe five or ten
minutes at best now, and cannot
walk but very sort distances. I
think you see what I am saying. My
life as I knew it before January 31,
2005, just does not exist anymore.
I think sometimes at how hard
my life is, but as hard it is and as
challenging as it is from day to day
just to get through that day's pain
and that day's struggles, I remem-
ber two very important things. One,
I could be laid up somewhere para-
lyzed in a nursing home or totally
dependent on my family or dead,
and two, that as hard as it is now,
there is always someone that is
worse off than I am.
I want each and every person in
Hardee County to know that I do
care about each and everyone of
you, and I do not hold any hard
feelings for anyone. If anyone
would care to contact me, you can
email me at shanibug@msn.com
and I will then give you my mailing
address or phone number if you
want it. I also want everyone who
helped me financially, and through
prayers, when I had my wreck to
know that you were such a bless-
ing, and I thank you humbly from
the bottom of my heart. I still have
it very hard with the all of the bills,
but I am not asking you to help me.
I just wanted to thank you all for
what you did in the past and for
praying for me and to let you know
where I am and how I am now.
Now, as to the big question.
Have any of you, especially the
doctors and emergency room nurs-
. es wondered, where in the heck has
Shanna Crenshaw gone? She hasn't
been in here for a long time!
Amazing enough, it has been over
two years since I have been in
there! Wow! Well, I live in Murphy,
North Carolina, about 20 miles
from my parents, and I have a big,
but old farm house with cows and
mules and whatever else runs
around out there (they belong to the
neighbors).; I love North Carolina.
It is very.*. beautiful, peaceful,
serene. Just what I needed. I am
nine miles from town and that kind
of hurts a little because of the soar-
ing gas prices, but that you get used
to after awhile.
The one thing I don't know if I
will be able to get used to is this
crazy North Carolina winter. It was
"cold". It even snowed here about
the middle of April. On the morn-
ing of May 21 it was 38 degrees
here! That's crazy! My yard rolls,
and with my clumsy self (as I said
earlier my injuries makes me fall a


lot), when it rains and gets muddy,
or snows and is slick, down I go.
And I don't mean walking down
the hill or up it.
I've got to tell you this. It will
make you laugh! On Christmas eve,
I got a half-shepherd half-chow
puppy. My husband was carrying
her down the hill, and I had got the
neighbors mail. I made it almost to
the porch and slipped (luckily my
head didn't hit the concrete). I was
muddy from head to toe, was trying
to get up and couldn't but I had my.
neighbors mail, and I was laying
there holding her mail, my arms
sticking straight up in the air, not a
speck of mud on my wrist, hand or
her mail as if daring the mud to get
on it. Finally my husband helped
me up. Thank God I wasn't hurt.
But now after going to the doctor
and reporting all of my problems,
and all of my falls and testing for
this and testing for that I now walk
with a walker, or cane depending
on how steady I feel, I use five
liters of oxygen at night because of
COPD with chronic bronchitis.
I asked the doctors about surgery
to fix my back but I am not a can-
didate for surgery. Several doctors
have said this is irreversible, and
that the only thing they can do is
give me pain pills and muscle
relaxants. I get so upset sometimes,
so depressed, having heart prob-,
lems, COPD with chronic bronchi-
tis, now all of these problems with
my injuries. Oh, brother! What a
life. Well I guess it could be worse.
I think that what really frustrates
me is one, having to use a cane or
a walker to get around, and two,
having to depend on my husband or
my dad or Medicaid transport to
take me where I need to go.,
Since that night I have driven
maybe four or five times if that.
When I drive, I freak totally out! I
panic, my stomach knots up, I
shake from head to toe, my heart
feels like it is in the pit of my stom-
ach, and I get very sick to my stom-
ach; I am very scared of driving and
that's really a shame. Before I
would get in a car and go anywhere
I wanted to no matter what time of
day or night it was or how far it
was, by myself. I was just never
afraid to get in the car and go. But
now if someone mentions that they
need for me to drive I hide, and
that's no joke. I freaked out that
bad, just driving my nephew to the
bus stop one morning that was less
than 1/4 of a mile from the house!
Another thing that's bad is I am

I just want to say I thank God for

Please continue to keep me in your

Well, thanks for reading, and feel

3 TO 6 P.M.: PRIME TIME FOR RISKY BEHAVIORS
Do you know where your children are and what they are doing
between the hours of 3 and 6 p.m.? These hours are the most likely times
for your child to become involved in risky behaviors such-as alcohol, drug
or sex.
More than 200 organizations across the nation recognized Wednesday,
May 2, as National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Day. The Florida Depart-
ment of Health wants everyone to be aware of the importance of helping
youth avoid pregnancy until they are physically, emotionally and financial-
ly ready for parenthood, preferably after marriage.
Why should we be concerned about this issue that some people may
feel does not affect them? Actually, the crisis of teen pregnancy affects all
of us where it hurts the most: our pocketbooks!
According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, teens
19 and younger who had babies in 2004 cost Florida taxpayers roughly
$481 million. In Hardee County alone teen births cost taxpayers over
$446,340 in 2005. That is probably a conservative, amount and may actu-
ally be higher than that. Teen pregnancy and child births have significant
social and economic impact.
Let's look at the consequences of teen pregnancy and decide for your-
self if this is the future you see for yourself or for your children.
Consequences for the Teen Mom are:
50 percent more likely to drop out of high school and will never
complete requirements for a high school diploma, thus greatly limiting job
possibilities;
50 percent more likely to depend on welfare for daily living;
25 percent will have another child before the age of 20; and
More likely to stay a single parent.
The consequences for the Teen Dad are:
More likely to drop out of school entirely and never complete either
high school or college, and;
Earn $5,000 less annually.
The consequences for the Baby are:
More likely to be born at a low or very low birth weight;
More likely to die within the first month; and
Are at a higher risk for disabilities.
These consequences can last a lifetime and put children, families andc
thus, communities at risk and have far-reaching negative impacts on our
society.
What is a parent to do who wants to keep the lines of communication
open with children regarding sex? These tips from the National Campaign
to Prevent Teen Pregnancy Web site may help you have "The Talk" with
your kids. Here they are:
Be clear about your own sexual values and attitudes;
Talk with your children often about sex, and be specific;
Supervise and monitor your children; have them involved in orga-
nized after-school activities;
Know your children's friends and their families;
Take a strong stand against your daughter spending time with a boy
significantly older than she. Don't allow your son to develop an intense
relationship with a girl much younger or older than he;
Help your teenagers have options for the future that are more attrac-
tive than early pregnancy and parenthood;
Let your kids know that you value education highly; and
Know what your kids are reading, watching, learning and listening
to.
These tips for helping your children avoid teen pregnancy work best
when they occur as part of strong, close relationships with your childrep
that are built from an early age. But, it is never too late to get the conver-
sation started.
The Results Are In!
Among 15- to 19-year-olds for teen births, Hardee County is number
thue .in the state of Florida. Among teens under 18, Hardee County is
number two in the state.
These are statistics that no one should be proud of. There is a Hardee
County Teen Pregnancy Prevention Alliance and a Drug Prevention
Coalition which meet monthly to educate the citizens about the hazards of
teen pregnancy. Abstinence is the only 100 percent effective method of pre-
venting teen pregnancies, and these coalitions are working diligently to
help teens understand abstaining from sex is the only guaranteed way to
avoid pregnancy.
If you would like to join in these efforts, come and be a part of the solti~
tion by getting involved in the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Alliance and
Drug Prevention Coalition meetings. They meet the second Tuesday of
every month at 9 a.m. at the Hardee County Extension Service Office.
Call 773-2164 for more information on how you can get involved,.

resource for both teens and parents.

Dixie Boys Finish Up


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of close encounters last
week ended the 2007 Dixie Boys
season.
The 13- to- 15-year-old had a
pair of games between the Florida
Fertilizer Braves and the BJD
Excavating Red Sox on Monday
and Tuesday evening, with the Red
Sox managing wins in both games.
The Torrey Oaks Rangers had
finished their season the previous
week, ending up 12-1 for the sea-
son championship. Players for the
Rangers are Kyle Bodeck, Scott
Donaldson, Deonte Evans, Michael
Forrester, Tanner Gough, Dalton
Hewett, Steve Hodges, Sean
Homes, Jarrius Lindsey, Jeremy
Rowe, Kalari Royal, Lincoln
Saunders and Malik Tatis. They are
coached by Shane Forrester,
Tommy Taylor and Fernando Tatis.
On Monday of last week, The
Red Sox claimed a 9-7 win over the
Braves.
Leadoff batter Jacob Mayer and
Kyle Ward were each triple tally
batters for the Red Sox. Ward
smacked a triple and Dillon Rabon
hit a double. Daniel Miller had twin


scores and Chase Revell added
another. Murrell Winter had two
hits and Trenton Muntz one. Other
Red Sox are Taylor Barlow,
Thomas Flores, Julian Valera and
Austin Carey.
For the Braves, leadoff batter
Caleb Reas had two hits and three
scores. Dustin Ratliff added twin
hits. Justin Knight, Brandon
Holton, Carter Lambert and Gray-
son Lambert each came around to
score once. Other Braves are
Dawson Crawford, Joseph Adams,
Justin Fones and Wintz Terrell.
Tuesday's game was even tighter,
with the Red Sox nipping the
Braves 12-11.
Ward homered, Revell tripled
and Rabon doubled for long-ball
hits for the Red Sox. Rabon and
Ward each circled the bases three
times. Mayer chipped in with twin
scores and Miller, Barlow, Muntz
and Flores each touched home
once.
For the Braves, Fones and
Grayson Lambert each doubled.
Ratliff came home three times and
Adams and Crawford were each
twin-tally batters. Reas, Fones,
Holton and Carter Lambert each
crossed home plate once.


Nutrition Notes

SOME LIKE IT COLD
An uncooked pasta sauce is a quick, cool way to deal with the heat of
August. Served over whole-wheat pasta, it's not only good and easy, but
good for you.
A sauce of vegetables and mushrooms over some whole-wheat fettuc-
cine meets many of the daily requirements for a healthful diet.
Whole grains are chock-full of nutrients and have a wonderful nutty
taste. Whole wheat, corn, oats, brown rice and other whole grains contain
powerful antioxidants that fight cancer, as do those found in vegetables and
fruits.
The key to whole grains' enormous cancer-fighting potential lies in
their wholeness. A grain of whole wheat is composed of three parts:
endosperm, bran and germ. When wheat or any grain is refined, the bran
and germ where most of the protective phytochemicals and fiber are stored
are removed.
Studies show that people who eat at least three servings of whole
grains a day have a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer and
seem to maintain a healthy weight more easily. Since refined grains, such
as white flour, have their germ and bran removed, whole grains are higher
in fiber and contain ten times the amount of vitamin E; four times the potas-
sium, magnesium and zinc; three times the vitamin B-6; and twice the sele-
nium.
A no-cook pasta sauce completes this nutritious grain. Cut some porta-
bello mushrooms into generous chunks to make the sauce meaty and satis-
fying. The zucchini, carrots, basil and peppers add color as well as nutri-
ents.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Seek God while He's here to be
found; pray to Him while He's
close at hand. Let them come
back to God, who is merciful,
come back to our God, who is
lavish with forgiveness.
Isaiah 55:6-7 (The Message)
FRIDAY
So shun youthful passions and
aim at righteousness, faith, love
and peace, along with those
who call upon the Lord from a
pure heart. Have nothing to do
with stupid, senseless contro-
versies; you know that they
breed quarrels.
II Timothy 2:22-23 (RSV)

SATURDAY
Reverence for God gives life,
happiness and protection from
harm. .Stop listening to teach-
ing that contradicts what you
know is right.
Proverbs 20:23,27 (TLB)

SUNDAY
For God has allowed us to know
the secret of His plan and it is
this: He purposes in His sover-
eign will that all human history
shall be consummated in Christ,
that everything that exists in
Heaven or earth shall find its
perfection and fulfillment in Him.
Ephesians 1:9 (Phillips)

MONDAY
Then Asa called to the Lord his
God and said, "Lord, there is no
one like You to help the power-
less against the mighty. Help us,
0 Lord our God, for we relay on
You.
II Chronicles 14:11 a (NIV)

TUESDAY
This man was healed by the
name of Jesus Christ of
Nazareth... There is no salvation
in anyone else at all, for there is
no other name under heaven
granted to me by which we may
receive salvation.
Acts 4:10a,12 (NEB)

WEDNESDAY
The Lord is the light and the
One who save me. I fear no one.
The Lord protects my life, I am
afraid of no one.

Sierra Club Joins 3 Counties

In Fight Against Ona Mine


On Friday, May 11, the Sierra
Club filed a petition to intervene in
the proceedings before Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP) against the
Mosaic Co.'s proposed phosphate
mine known as the Ona Mine.
Sierra Club's action will support
the Peace River Water Management
Authority and Charlotte, Sarasota
and Lee counties in their fight
against the mine.
The proposed Ona Mine would
be in Hardee County, near where
Manatee, Hillsborough, Hardee and
Polk counties meet. The permit
would allow mining in the first
phase of the project, referred to as
the Ona-Fort Gree'i extension, on
about 4,000 acres in the Horse
Creek-Peace River watershed.
"The phosphate companies have
been trying for years to paint a pret-
ty face on their strip mining. The
ugly truth has now come out, and,
that is, that upstream activities have
an effect on water downstream, and
phosphate strip mines has already
had a serious impact," said Sue
Reske, chair, Sierra Club Greater
Charlotte Harbor Group.
Sierra Club takes this action fol-
lowing the Florida Court of


Appeals remand of the mining per-
mit to DEP for reconsideration in
light of the Peace River Cumulative
Impact Study. That study confirms
that the cumulative impact of the
phosphate mines causes harm to the
river.
According to the Cumulative
Impact Study: "There seems to be
little doubt that the loss of streams
and wetlands in the Peace River
watershed, as well as the loss of
base flow. . impair the ability of
the Peace River to provide sustain-
able public water supplies."
"We are taking this action to help
protect the people who use the
Peace River and Charlotte Harbor
for drinking water, fishing and
recreation," said Eric Huber, Sierra
Club senior staff attorney. "The
Sierra Club looks forward to assist-
ing the counties in ensuring that the
Florida DEP fully considers and
protects against the impacts of
phosphate mines, now and in the
future
The cumulative impact study
also determined that development
and agriculture have also adversely
affected the Peace River Watershed
over the years.

help with gas mileage, extend the
life of your car and ensure a safer
ride, but there are many cost-free
ways to save money, as well." He
suggested several, including:
Smooth out your driving style
by avoiding "jack rabbit" starts and
sharp braking. Both waste gas and
can represent a hazard for others on
the road.
It is estimated that every mile
per hour driven above 55 MPH
costs one percent in fuel economy.
So, slowing down can be both safe
and fuel-efficient. Maintaining a
constant speed also maximizes
your car's performance. If road
conditions permit, use the cruise
control.
Air conditioners can account for
a 10-15 percent impact on mileage.
If you can't avoid it, do not turn on
the air conditioner as a first
response to the heat. Start your
drive with the windows open to
exhaust the hot air out of the rear
windows and then put on the A/C if
needed. This will also enable the air
conditioning to work faster and
more efficiently when turned on.
Accelerate as you approach a
hill, rather than hitting the gas and
switching gears once on the incline.
Lighten the car's load by
removing all unnecessary items
from the trunk, such as the bag of
sand and shovel from the winter.
Every 200 pounds of weight
reduces gas efficiency by one mile
per gallon.
If you have to carry a lot of bag-
gage, avoid using a roof-top con-
tainer, which will increase the air
drag. If you drive a pick-up truck,
the open bed will have the same
impact, so put a cover on it.
Keep your tires inflated to the
level recommended by the manu-
factureer. Incorrectly inflated tires
impact fuuel efficiency.
Plan your trip routes and com-
bined trips to minimize travel.

SEEDS t
FROM
THE
SOWER"

MIichael A. Guido
Mener. Georgia


Teddy Roosevelt lived every day
with gusto He was never known to
rest, except when he slept.
He was called, "The Apostle of
The Strenuous Life."
By "strenuous" he meant using
your brain as well as your brawn;
being enthusiastic as well as
engaging.
But while he was busy, his life
wasn't barren. He produced, he
didn't just piddle.
The Living Bible says, "Be sure
you use the abilities God has given

Museum Musings
By Sandy Scott
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


Cracker Trail Museum will be celebrating its 40th anniversary on
Thursday, June 21. At its dedication on June 24, 1967, Polk County Rep.
William H. Bevis took on the role as master of ceremonies and officially
opened the proud vision of The Peace River Valley Historical Society.
Mitchell Hope was the museum's first curator, and was the driving force
in obtaining many of the acquisitions that are on display today. He spent
much of his time planning for the interesting arrangement of these items, as
evidenced in his numerous drawings and notes that are retained in museum
files.
The primary objective of the museum as outlined in its June 24 program
was to "guarantee adequate preservation of the collections and effective use
of its contents." It continued to state that its goal was to provide education-
al programs for the public and to capture the spirit of the past and make it
live.
If Mitchell were alive today, I feel he would give the museum a thumbs
up in the way the museum has attempted to carry on the objectives of The
Peace River Valley Historical Society.
Twenty-six years after the museum opened its door, its size was expand-
ed in 1993. This provided additional space to house the already bulging
collection of precious memories of our Hardee County residents.
* At that dedication on June 6, 1993, Maurice Henderson welcomed many
of you who came out to browse through the addition which now included
the Bryant Blacksmith Shop and Hart Cabin. Royce Tyson Jr. and Minor
Bryant took part in this dedication and I am sure special recognition was
given to that fledgling group ofindividuals from The Peace River Valley
Historical Society and its vision for the future.
Many of our residents again took part in the 30th year anniversary of the
museum on Feb. 22, 1998. Many of you may remember comments about
this wonderful asset to our community, Walter Olliff Jr., Milton Lanier,
Barney Whitman, a letter from Gov. Lawton Chiles which congratulated the
Board of County Commissioners on its 30th Anniversary and its efforts in
establishing, displaying and preserving the history of our great state of
Florida.
I am sure many kind words were spoken at that anniversary celebration,
with the acknowledgement that the museum has indeed carried out the orig-
inal objectives by displaying and preserving Hardee County's past.
For the past 20 years, Hardee County elementary-school.children have
visited the museum and adjoining buildings through the efforts of Kayton
Nedza and the Outdoor Classroom program. This year, 390 students visit-
ed between the months of December and March. In addition to Hardee
County's, schools from Highlands County regularly visit the museum.
These students received detailed information concerning life as our
ancestors lived it. They questioned the use of particular items on display,
including flat irons, pitcher pumps, butter churns, spinning wheels and trea-
dle sewing machines. They visited the Hart Cabin and were given an expla-
riation of how families lived in the 1880s. They toured the 1886 Post
Office and learned about James "Acre-Foot" Johnson, who carried the mail
65 miles every day by foot between Fort Meade and Fort Myers.
They were taught the importance of the country blacksmith shop back
when C.A. Bryant serviced the community in the 1800s, and they may have
giggled at the sign which reads: "Smile with me while I work Don't swear
itn this shop for the Lord is my helper." It is the same sign that hung in the
blacksmith shop many years ago and accompanied the building when it was
moved to Pioneer Park in 1972. And those'students were also able to open
the door to the outhouse and gaze upon that little necessary building that
many of us still hold way down deep in our memories.
Cracker Trail Museum has indeed grown from its beginning 40 years
ago. Those pioneers who had a vision for a museum in Hardee County are

LIFE'S LITTLE ANNOYANCES
God's ways are higher than our ways, according to the prophet Isaiah'
(55:8-9).
I'm struck by this often when I try to understand the circumstances of
life. All of us are aware of the tragedy of 9/11. All of us are aware of the
horror that changed our world forever. Nearly all of us watched the news
that day, hoping against hope and praying to God for those families.
What you might not know is that many had reasons to rejoice that day.
They were the people who were side-tracked, made late for work by life's
little annoyances.
Here is a list of some that I have heard of. The head of one of the com-
panies survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten. Another fellow
was alive because it was his turn to bring doughnuts. One woman was late
because her alarm clock didn't go off in time. One was late because of
being stuck on the New Jersey Turnpike because of an auto accident. One
missed his bus.
Another spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change..
One's car wouldn't start. One went back to answer the telephone. One had
a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.
Another couldn't get a taxi. One man had put on a new pair of shoes that
morning, developed a blister on his foot and stopped at a drugstore to buy
a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.
What seemingly insignificant circumstances, annoying little mishaps!
Those people probably were irritated about those things that day, before
they realized what they had escaped. They were probably angry about the
telephone ringing or the blister. But it ended up being a blessing that they
thank God for every day now.
What little circumstances of life have helped you avoid tragedy? You
may never know.
It could be that God sent a little annoyance your way to help you avoid
the greatest tragedy. And God does this to give us one more chance to turn
to Him. As 2 Peter 3:9 states, "The Lord... is patient with you, not wishing
for any to perish but for all to come to repentance."
How many tragedies has God helped you avoid? How many chances
has God sent your way? How many times has God preserved your life and
protected your soul in order to give you one more chance to turn to Him?
We may never know. All we can know is that God expects us to turn to
Him and repent. I'm Telling the Truth.

Safe Keeping
By Rich Shepard
Emergency Management Director


HURRICANE PREP 101
Welcome to May's edition of Safe Keeping. In this month's column,
we are going to discuss hurricane preparations: what you can do to prepare
your home and family and what the Emergency Operations Center in doing
to prepare as well.
A Culture Of Preparedness
Whatever your opinion of our previous governor, he had a couple of
good ideas. Not the least of which was to try to develop a "Culture of
Preparedness" for all Floridians. The idea is if you can do things within
your family circle to prepare for disasters, you'll be better able to put your
life back together after any disaster, regardless of the cause.
Additionally, he was putting everyone on notice that the government


STILL HOOKED
Q: I want to be happy. I've given my life to Jesus and when I did,
I expected to be happy. I thought some kind of sparks would fly and my
life would be turned around instantly. No matter how hard I try, I feel
that I can't get out of this mode I'm stuck in. If Jesus set me free, why
do I still feel so bound?
Signed, Unhappy
A: I have a wonderful illustration for you on this question. The other
day my parents and I took my children fishing. My dad caught a soft-shell
turtle and pulled it in. He got it to the bank and worked to set it free. Finally
he succeeded, and the turtle was free to swim back into the river. But,
instead of swimming, it just laid there. Being the inquisitive person I am, I
asked why the turtle was just lying there. My dad said, "Because he thinks
he's still hooked."
There are people just like yourself who are not enjoying the blessings
of God because they think they are still bound. You're not walking in the
freedom Jesus died for; instead you are stuck in a neutral mode. No one can
make you walk in freedom. You have to choose to set your mind to that
mode.
Choose to be happy, pursue peace, and seek for joy. Did you know that
we are a blessed people, a holy nation, a royal priesthood, joint heirs with
Jesus, the bride of the King? We are the head and not the tail.
You have been redeemed, ransomed by your kinsman redeemer.
You've been purchased with a high price from the slave market. So, why
are you still living like you're bound?
The worst lie the devil is telling people is that they are bound to their
past, doomed, stuck in a mode they can't get out of. But, that is a lie from
the pits of Hell.
You can walk in the authority and power that Jesus died for. But, you
must choose to believe this. You must know who you are in Christ. Set your
mind to think positive things.
The joy of the Lord is your strength. "Those who wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they
shall run and not grow weary, and they shall walk and not faint ... let the
weak say I am strong," Joel 3:10.
Soar like the eagle that is free and beautiful. Choose today to be happy.
Read the Word and let it come alive inside you.
Signed, Penny


can't and shouldn't be everyone's only disaster plan. Think of it as a kind
of "we can do this" mentality because regardless if it's local, state or feder-
all government, you should rely on yourself first and government second.
So why all this fuss'? A July 2006 study published by the Harvard
School of Public Health indicated many people still don't get it. The study,
conducted in hurricane risk counties in Gulf and Atlantic Seaboard states
(all 67 Florida counties were included), revealed some scary statistics:
33 Percent of people who said they would stay if told to evacuate.
54 Percent of people who said they would not evacuate because they
believe the roads will be too crowded.
67 Percent of people who indicated they would not evacuate because
they were somewhat/very worried about conditions in a public shelter.
23 Percent of people who don't have a First Aid kit.
63 Percent of people who don't have a pre-arranged family meeting
place.
What do these statistics say'? They indicate that many people are still
not taking steps to protect their own lives. Below are some simple things
you can do to begin making preparations to protect your family:
Have a family disaster plan. You can get help creating one by visiting
www.floridadisaster.org.
Have an out-of-area contact. Tell them where you're going if you
evacuate.
Have a plan for your pets. Consult your vet or animal care provider
for boarding arrangements.
Obtain a minimum of three days of home health supplies and three
weeks of medications.
Have an emergency supply of cash, typically $300 will be adequate.
Remember, having some kind of plan is better than no plan.
Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?
Evacuate or stay; that is the question. Forgive the puns but the question
of evacuation comes up all the time. When evacuations are ordered, they
are not taken lightly. Telling people to leave their homes is serious and
something we don't do on a whim. So if evacuations are ordered, you
should take them seriously.
Having said that, sheltering in place is a viable alternative to public
shelters. Of course, your first course of action if evacuating should be to
leave the area. Public shelters are an option, but you should consider it only
as a last resort if you have no other option.
Below are some general evacuation guidelines that might help you if
you ever need to make that decision:
If you live in an RV, mobile home or wood-frame house, you should
consider evacuation.
If you live in a well-built concrete block home, you should consider
the severity of the storm before choosing to evacuate.
If you are choosing to evacuate, let someone know where you intend
to ,go.
If you are choosing to stay, make sure you have adequate supplies on hand
well before the storm affects our area.
Are We Prepared?
Hardee County's Emergency Management staff members are busily
preparing for this year's hurricane season. Some of the new plans and pro-
cedures in place for this year include:
The Pet-Friendly Shelter program.
Revised and upgraded computer system to improve communications.
Mobile satellite phone system (provided by federal grant dollars).
Additional staff and volunteer training.
In addition, all Emergency Operations Center staff participated in the
Statewide Hurricane Exercise on May 8 and 9. The scenario for this year's
exercise was the Okeechobee Hurricane that struck in the late '30s. The
track took the center of the storm over thc northeast corner of Hardee
County. The EOC staff had a chance to try out some of the new systems and
make sure everything is 100 percent operational before June 1.
TIP OF THE MONTH
When the power goes out and traffic lights are off, treat all intersec-
tions as four-way stops until law enforcement officers are able to direct traf-
fic or the lights are restored. Alsu, use caution if you must drive after a
storm as there may be debris or power lines in the road. Please report any
debris blocking the roadway so crews can begin the clean-up process.
Remember, managing your emergencies begins with you.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and
services we deliver to you every day Our water source is the City of Wauchula, which receives its water from wells in the Floridan Aquifer. The
water is then filtered by reverse osmosis and chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
Ifyou have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Andy Maddox at 863-773-6686. Wauchula Hills

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As
water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals an4 in some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in
bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk More information about contaminants and
potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-
4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). 5:31 C

FLORIDA MARKETS AT A GLANCE

For the week ended May 17, 2007:

At the Florida Livestock Auctions, receipts totaled 7,431 compared to
7,839 last week and 6,769 a year ago. According to the Florida Federal-
State Livestock Market News Service: compared to last week: slaughter
cows and bulls were steady to 1.00 to 3.00 higher, feeder steers and
heifers were steady to 1.00 higher


Opens Saturday: Will Ana be the
first of an estimated 11 unwelcome
visitors to Florida this year? If, and
when, she comes, will most of us be
prepared for her stormy stop'?
Ana is the first name of storms in
the Atlantic Ocean area for 1997.
She will be followed by Bill,
Claudette, Danny and Erika. Some
will be merely named storms.
Seven are predicted to become hur-
ricanes and three of them a catego-
ry 3 or above.

Marching Into The Future: Two
hundred twenty-three members of
the tardee Senior High Class of
1997 will head off in their own
directions this weekend as they
begin a new chapter in their lives.
The final installment of their high
school careers will be written
tomorrow night, with graduation
ceremonies at 7 o'clock in the
Cattlemen's Arena at the County
Fairgrounds off Altman and
Stenstrom roads in Wauchula.

Local Country Music Singer
Records Album: Local country
music singer James Platt will
release his new album entitled
"Almost Home" in the coming
days. On his recent trip to Nashville
to record the album, he spent five of
the six days in a studio.
"Between the band, the produc-
ers, the engineers, the mixers and'
me, it took five days to cut 35 min-
utes of music," he said.
Accompanying him on the trip were
Shawnia Terrell and Jimmy
Hanchey.
Genius is the power of lighting
one's own fire.

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
City of Wauchula

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and
services we deliver to you every day Our water source is the Floridan Aquifer. The water is filtered by reverse osmosis, then chlorinated for
disinfection.
Ifyou have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Andy Maddox at 863-773-6686. The City of
Wauchula routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January I to December 31, 2006.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following
definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as
feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level ofa contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, f exceeded triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pgfI) one part by weight of analyte to I billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to
health
In 2004, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found potential sources of contamination near the
wells. These included petroleum storage tanks and a wastewater treatment plant. The level of risk is high. Source water assessments are posted at
http://www.den.state.il.uslswapp/.
