Man Charged With 211 Counts Of Animal Cruelty


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A rural Zolfo Springs man under
suspicion for two years was
charged last week with 211 counts
of animal cruelty for allegedly rais-


ing roosters for cockfighting, an
illegal activity in this and 48 other
states.
Milton Arnold Murphy, 51, of
364 Bronco Dr., was booked into
the Hardee County Jail on Wed-


nesday on 211 counts of breeding
animals for the purpose of fighting
and on a single count of possessing
animal-fighting equipment.
All are third-degree felonies and
each is punishable upon conviction


by up to five years in state prison.
Murphy was released from cus-
tody last Thursday afternoon on his
own recognizance to await trial, jail
records said.
A temporary order issued by


County Judge Jeff J. McKibben the
same day as Murphy's arrest seizes
all the chickens, roosters arid hens
alike, but impounds them on the
Bronco Drive premises.
Sheriffs Office investigators are
to have access to the property at all
times in order to inspect the chick-
ens, McKibben said.
Further, the judge ordered
Murphy not to remove any chick-
ens from the site nor add any.
McKibben also said Murphy must
get and pay for any veterinary care
needed by the animals.
The judge left the door open for
further hearings on the matter,
requested by either side.
According to Maj. Claude Harris
Jr., spokesman for the Sheriffs
Office, the arrest is the culmination
of two years of sporadic surveil-
lance by agricultural deputies Sgt.
James Adler and Sgt. Everett
Lovett.
Adler said he and Lovett first
discovered the questionable opera-
tion while on patrol.
"We came across this, and


because the roosters were housed
individually, that's kind of a tip-
off," Adler said. "There is no reason
to house roosters individually
except for fighting purposes."
Adler said he and Lovett kept
their eyes on the property for two
years. "We watched the numbers go
up and down. We were waiting for
probable cause. Anybody can own
chickens. It only becomes against
the law to own them when it is for

Big Development


Planned For


Vandolah Area


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A local medical center is entering
a new realm with plans to develop
a rural residential community on its
872 acres in western Hardee
County.
The Florida Institute For
Neurologic Rehabilitation has got-
ten county support for the "rural
center" which could eventually
provide 5,000 jobs for the area. It
will include shops, eateries, a hotel,
a rehabilitative hospital, multi-fam-
ily housing and office space.
The new residential-commercial
business tract there is part of three
projects planned by FINR.
Currently the rehabilitative facility
at 1962 Vandolah Road has space
for about 80 brain-injured children
and adults who need the therapeutic
and protective setting the facility
affords.
Two of FINR's three new pro-
jects are in Wauchula. Under con-
struction is a 12-unit, 40-to-50 bed
transitional care facility off South
Florida Avenue, west of Florida
Hospital. In the works is a plan
approved by the Wauchula City
Council for a two-story 19,000-
square-foot operations center at
West Main Street and North Eighth
Avenue, the former site of the
Wauchula Feed Store. The first


floor will be a parking garage and
the offices will be on the second
floor.
Most of the FINR rural center-
residential development, including
housing for about 2,750 residents,
will be completed between 2008
and 2019. With nearby Vandolah
Estates marketed by Florida
German .Citrus planning up to
1,250 residents on its 582 acres and
the Sweetwater Ranch "rural cen-
ter" project on nearly 8,000 acres-
in the southern end of the county,
the combined growth in these pro-
jects alone could increase the coun-
ty population by 15,000.
The FINR project presented
recently to the Hardee County
Commission called for a large-
scale Comprehensive Land Use
Plan amendment, which the com-
mission approved and forwarded to
the state Department of Communi-
ty Affairs for its approval.
The "rural center" is a land use
designation for mixed uses. In this
case, it would include higher densi-'
ty housing than the Agricultural
designation allows. FINR is
already connected to the county's
Vandolah wastewater treatment
plant and the new residences and
businesses would also be on that
system.

Of The Herald-Advocate
Bringing marijuana onto campus
has led to the expulsions of three
students in recent hearings before
the Hardee County School Board.
Two more expulsion hearings are
tentatively set for the July 12 meet-
ing of the board, and should bring
disciplinary actions stemming from
the 2006-07 academic year to a
close.
So far, expulsions for the year
total five.
In the first case, a 15-year-old
eighth-grade boy at Hardee Junior
High School was accused of hav-
ing marijuana on him at school on.
March 8. Then-assistant principal
Doug Herron was tipped off by a
student, and called the suspected
boy to the office.
There, with his mother present,
the boy was asked to empty his
pockets. His mother reached in and
retrieved a cigarette lighter and' a
small bag of marijuana from the


boy's left-front pants pocket, a
report on the incident said.
Neither he nor a parent attended
the expulsion hearing.
In the second case, a 17-year-old
11th-grade boy at Hardee Senior
High School was accused of pos-
* sessing marijuana on school
grounds on March 14. Dean of
Students Todd Durden had received
a tip from a student, alleging two
other students were discussing hav-
ing and selling drugs on campus.
Durden and Dean of Students
Teresa White located both young-
sters in question, and interviewed
them. The 17-year-old was asked if
he had anything that would be con-
sidered dangerous or illegal.on him.
He reached into a pants pocket
and produced a paper cigar box
holding a cigar filled with marijua-
na, the incident report said.
Again, neither the student nor a
parent was present at the expulsion
hearing.

DEVELOPMENT
Continued From 1A


In its project narrative, FINR
divides its long-range development
plan into nine categories.
Over the next 20 years it will
expand its rehabilitation center to
add 1,030 patients and an estimated
3,605 staff. Presently, there is an
administrative center, cottages for
pediatric and adult residents, doll,
vocational and woodworking
spaces, activities and canteen units
and the main rehabilitation center.
A 200-room hotel planned for
2010 construction will have space
far 400 guests, and employ 10-to-12
workers.
Two 20,000-square-foot restau-
rants, one constructed in 2010 and
another in 2013, will each service
500 diners and employ 40 staff
members.
In 2011, a general store/coffee
shop on the western entrance off
CR 663 (Ona-Fort Green Road)
will be added in 2011 and employ
five people. Also coming in 2011 is
a 10,000-square-foot day care cen-
ter for up to 150 children. At its
maximum capacity, it will have at

least 25 staff.
A convenience store/gas station
will be added at the Vandolah Road
entrance to the community in 2013
and employ five people. At the
same time construction will begin
on the 900 single-family and multi-
family housing units, a majority for
FINR employees. When complet-
ed, by about 2019, it will add about
2,754 residents, with a maximum
density of 12 per acre and average
seven per acre.
A 200-bed rehabilitation hospital
will be built in 2016, with 700 staff
members of various disciplines to
care for the 200 patients.
The final step of construction
will be in 2021 through 2026, when
a total of 175,000 square feet of
office space will be built for 583
staff members and visitors.
There will be buffers between the
residential, commercial and med-
ical areas and about 330 acres of
wetlands will be undisturbed.
Fifteen acres of recreationaliJand
per 1,000 residents will be' set
aside. There are plans for a 15-acre
equestrian center, pools and gym-
nasiums connected with ,the hotel
and residential development. Up to
two acres may be donated to the
county for a law enforcement and
Fire-Rescue substation.
Four schools would feel the
effects of the approximately 881
students added to the Hardee
County School System. It is esti-
mated that 248 elementary students
from the Vandolah area housing
would attend North Wauchula
Elementary, swelling its population
from the current 533 students to a
surplus of 138. An additional 651
elementary students from the CR
663 area would attend Hilltop
Elementary, which is already near
its 496 capacity.
There would be an estimated 220
junior high students from the FINR
housing, but that school would still
be under its 1,388 capacity. Finally,
the addition of 248 senior high stu-
dents would not exceed the 1,594
capacity at Hardee High, according
to FINR's plant report.

EXPULSIONS
Continued From 1A
In the final instance, an eighth-
grade 14-year-old boy at Hardee
Junior High School allegedly had
marijuana on him on April 19.
Dean of Students Gregg White
was visiting classrooms on that day
when he walked into one and
noticed that a student reacted suspi-
ciously and quickly shoved some-
thing into his pocket.
White approached the student
and asked him for whatever it was
that the youngster had just put in
his pocket. The boy produced three
packages of marijuana, the report
alleged.
The boy and a parent attended
the hearing, but offered no defense.
In each of the three cases, the
students were criminally charged
with misdemeanor possession of
marijuana.
And in each case, the School
Board took the same action,
expelling the students for the
remainder of the 2006-07 school
year and the first semester of the
coming 2007-08 year.
The students will receive place-
ment consideration at Pioneer
Career Academy, the district's
alternative school in Zolfo Springs.
First, however, they must meet
three requirements: undergo an
assessment by a substance-abuse
treatment facility, completion of its
recommendations, and voluntary
submission to random drug screen-
ings at their parents' expense.

Nutrition Notes
CONSIDER THE VERSATILE TOMATO
It's never too early to start thinking about what to do with all the toma-
toes that will soon be overwhelming gardens and markets.
There are, of course, soups, salads and pasta sauces. But consider mak-
ing a tomato chutney that would be a nice accompaniment to grilled sum-
mer foods.
Chutney which comes from the East Indian word chatni is a sweet
and spicy condiment containing fruit, vinegar, sugar and spice. It is com-
monly served with Indian curries but has become widely used with other
dishes as well.
Using ripe summer tomatoes as a chutney base is a good way to deal
with a surplus crop as well as to add a healthful bite to any meal. Tomatoes
are a rich source of vitamins A and C, and a powerful cancer-fighting
antioxidant called lycopene.
Studies have linked diets high in lycopene with lower prostate cancer
risk, as well as lower risk of stomach and pancreatic cancers.
Lycopene is what gives tomatoes, watermelon, papaya and pink grape-
fruit their color. When tomatoes are cooked, more of the lycopene becomes
available in the cancer-fighting process, so sauces, chutneys and other
processed versions of tomatoes are health-protective as well as convenient.
When choosing tomatoes, look for those that are vine-ripened and
deeply colored. They should feel heavy for their size. Unripe tomatoes can
be ripened in a paper bag at room temperature. Do not refrigerate fresh
tomatoes because their texture will become mealy and their taste watery.
Fragrant herbs such as basil, oregano, dill, parsley and thyme are ideal
seasonings for tomatoes, but more pungent spices like curry powder,
cumin, or chili powder also blend beautifully with tomatoes.
CAN HEALTHFUL EATING SAVE YOUR EYES?
Studies now suggest that the healthful eating habits recommended to
lower your risk of cancer may also help prevent the most common cause of
irreversible blindness that occurs among people in developed countries.
Although age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is still not fully under-
stood, experts say it may stem from damage caused by oxidation reactions.
A past large study showed that high doses of antioxidant supplements might
slow a person's progression from early to late AMD. Research does not
suggest taking high-dose supplements for prevention of AMD, however.
The past study that tested the ability of antioxidants to fight AMD was
the important Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS). In it, supplements
of five to 13 times the recommended amounts of beta-carotene, vitamins C
and E, and the mineral zinc were given to patients who had early AMD,
which was identified by an examination of the retina, or late-stage AMD in
which one eye had significantly worsening vision. After five years, sup-
plement usage was linked with a 25 percent less progression to late-stage
AMD. Because studies don't show any benefit to early supplementation in
preventing AMD, researchers recommend lifestyle steps to lower the risk of
developing AMD. A balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, sunglasses
with UV protection and a hat to limit sunlight damage to your eyes are the
best practices.
Lifestyle steps are supported by a new large study that positively
reports on the ability of a diet with food sources of the antioxidant nutrients
used in AREDS to lower the risk of AMD. This new study followed men
and women at least 55 years old who had no AMD in either eye at the

beginning of the study. After an average of eight years, those whose diets
ranked in the top half of the group for vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and zinc
were 35 percent less likely to have developed AMD. Eliminating people
who used any supplements from the analysis left the results virtually
unchanged.
The levels of vitamin E linked to AMD protection in this study ranged
from 20 to 30 International Units (IU). This range differs tremendously
from the doses of about 400 IU of this vitamin associated with some health
risks in other recent studies. The researchers of this new study also empha-
size that diets rich in several antioxidants seem to lower AMD risk more
than high amounts of any single antioxidant.
To get the levels of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and zinc linked
with lower AMD in this new study, you should eat these key foods each day
as part of a balanced diet: six or more servings of vegetables and fruits (at
least 1 1/2 cups of dark green and 1 cup of orange vegetables per week);
three or more servings of whole grains; 4 to 6 ounces of meat, poultry or
seafood (or bean equivalents); 5 to 7 teaspoons of oils like olive and canola;
and about one ounce of nuts.
Several large studies also suggest that eating fish at least twice a week
may substantially reduce AMD risk. Too much total fat consumption, how-
ever, particularly too much polyunsaturated fat, which is found in fish, may
increase AMD risk. This fat's chemical structure seems especially vulnera-
ble to oxidation reactions that are thought to damage the eye.
In another new study, women who selected foods with the highest
glycemic index had more than twice the rate of very early AMD. These
women's diets tended to be high in sweets and refined grains and low in
beneficial vegetables, fruits and whole grains. The link between their diet
and AMD held fast, even after researchers factored in the amount of fat and
lack of antioxidant nutrients in their diets. Perhaps, too many refined car-
bohydrates encourage inflammation and tissue damage. The women's
shortage of nutrients and phytochemicals from healthful foods could also
explain their extra AMD. risk..

the purpose of fighting," the
sergeant explained.
Harris said that probable cause
came in May, when the officers
heard Murphy had been arrested in
April in St. Lucie County while at a
cockfight. A call to Det. D.T.
Russell of the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office confirmed that
arrest.
Based on the cockfight arrest and
the fact that Murphy "was housing
animals consistent with fighting,"
Adler and Lovett applied for, and
were granted, a search warrant for
the Bronco Drive premises.
That warrant was executed on
Wednesday of last week by Adler,
Lovett and members of the
Southwest Florida Agricultural
Crimes Task Force, which consists
of deputies from Polk, Highlands
and Lee counties, Harris said.
Murphy, Adler alleged, first
denied ever attending a cockfight.
"When reminded of his (April)
arrest, he admitted to going to the
fight in St. Lucie County," Adler
said. "He stated he wished to see
what one was like."
Later, Murphy admitted he had
been raising fighting roosters, the
sergeant charged.
Officers counted 211 chickens on
the property with the majority of
them rooste'Ts. Many of those roost-
ers had their combs and wattles
trimmed, Harris described.
Further, the search allegedly
revealed spur saws, metal spur
sheaths, fight records, pamphlets
on training roosters for fighting, a
cockfighting schedule from "The
Carolina Club," various vitamin
and steroid solutions and syringes
for injecting them, and a number of
other suspicious items, Harris said.
Murphy was placed under arrest
at that time.

By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Bowling Green City Com-
mission at its monthly meeting
June 12 pointed out Main Street
needs to be resurfaced and noted
the street is a county road, therefore
the county's and not the city's
responsibility.
It was pointed out the county
stopped repaving at Hardee Street
recently.
Mayor Perry Knight said Main
Street which becomes Lake Branch
Road is a county road. The sign
says CR-664, said Knight.
Commissioner David Durastanti
said historically the county has
maintained Main Street.
The commission asked City
Manager David Elbertson to write a
letter to County Manager Lex
Albritton regarding the road pro-
ject.
"Our top priority is to have Main
Street paved (resurfaced)," said
Mayor Knight.
Elbertson said the basketball
court at Community Park has been
resurfaced. "We are waiting on a
county permit to build restrooms

He said there has been more van-
dalism at Pyatt Park.
Knight said the property behind
Wauchula State Bank that has been
proposed for housing for the elder-
ly is "wet and poorly drained" dur-
ing periods of heavy rain.
The city is represented by two
county commissioners Dale
Johnson on the east side of U.S. 17
and Minor Bryant on the west side.
City Commissioner Fern Gibson
said the county charges a big tip-
ping fee at the landfill.
Durastanti said 95 percent of the'
homes in Bowling Green would
come off the tax roll if a $50,000
homestead exemption is approved
at the state level. He said city
department heads should watch
expenses and look to see if vacant
positions should be filled.
City attorney Gerald Buhr said
assessments and user fees could be
looked at if the. city's property ad
valorem tax revenues suffer a big
decline.
Elbertson said there is a problem
with the generator at the water
plant.

6A The Herald-Advocate, June 28, 2007


,o- ^Kelly's Column
-By Jim


The Fourth of July celebrates the American colonies declaring their
independence from Great Britain in 1776. The American Revolution result-
ed in a new country called America.
People celebrate the Fourth in many ways. Some go to the mountains
or lakes or state or national parks or as part of their summer vacation.
Many people stay home and have a cookout or barbecue and hang out
near a swimming pool or a swimming hole in a creek.
Hardee County is having a wonderful Fourth of July celebration at
Pioneer Park (see information elsewhere in this issue).
There will also be a big benefit barbecue July 4 at Belflower's Flooring
Direct in Wauchula to raise funds for Scott Lang, who received a kidney
transplant last week, and his sister-in-law Tracy Lang who donated one of
her kidneys to Scott (see details elsewhere in this issue).
The basic reason behind the 13 American colonies splitting from Great
Britain was taxation without representation. The colonies were forced to
pay taxes to England's King George III with no representation in
Parliament. British troops were sent to quell signs of rebellion as dissatis-
faction grew.
Richard Henry Lee of Virginia introduced a resolution on June 7, 1776,
and asked the Continental Congress to declare the colonies free from
British rule. The final version was adopted by the Continental Congress on
July 4, 1776. The document was originally crafted by Thomas Jefferson,
with help from Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and
Robert R. Livingston.
The Pennsylvania Evening Post was the first newspaper to print the
declaration on July 6. On July 8 the first public readings were held at
Philadelphia's Independence Square, with the ringing of.bells and band
music.
Some 56 people had signed the declaration by early August.
Philadelphia first celebrated the Fourth of July a year later in 1777.
Thomas Jefferson, seriously ill in 1926 on the 50th anniversary, said
the declaration allowed people to break the chains and "assume the bless-
ings and security or self-government . that restores the free right to the
unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion. All eyes are opened,
or opening, to the rights of man."
Congress in 1941 declared July 4 a legal federal holiday. Food, enter-
tainment and fireworks are part of the holiday and are available in Hardee
County.

Cynthia Krahl, Joan Seaman, Jim Kelly and Michael Kelly of The
Herald-Advocate last week attended the annual Florido Press Association
convention held at Ponte Vedra Beach near Jacksonville.
A highlight was a talk by new Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. He is
Florida's 44th governor and is extremely popular for the job he has done to
date.
His grandfather Adam immigrated to America and shined shoes for $5
a week to help support himself. His children included a teacher and a doc-
tor, who was Charlie's father. Charlie grew up in St. Petersburg.
The governor, who loves to fish and is pro-environment, said he tries
to listen twice as much as he speaks, since people have two ears and one
mouth.


To find out what one is fitted
to do, and to secure an oppor-
tunity to do it, is the key to
happiness.

CASE NO.: 07-186-CA


He praised the Florida Legislature and the press, both of whom he said
are in the public service arena. "We are working in a non-partisan way to
help Florida. I love Florida more than you know."
Crist recently established in Tallahassee the Office of Open
Government and the Commission on Open Co, nment. "It was common
sense and the right thing to do."
Crist said former state attorney general Bob 3utterworth stressed the
importance of open government and is now secretary of the Florida
Department of Children and Families.
Crist said he remembers what his grandfather said, "Every pencil has
an eraser. ?-. ,ie are human and make mistakes."
The governor wants higher teacher pay along with protecting the envi-
ronment. He wants to keep the "public trust." He has met with former
Florida governors Reubin Askew, Bob Graham and Jeb Bush for counsel.
and advice.


Crist has also tackled insurance and property tax problems and is try-
ing to work with Democrats and Republicans in a non-partisan way to help
Florida. He is a former state attorney general, state senator, and state com-
missioner of education.
He has campaigned many times in Hardee County, including 1998
when he tried to unseat popular U.S. Sen. Bob Graham. "What was I think-
ing?"
Crist build up name recognition, made a lot of friends, and at age 50 is
governor of dynamic Florida. He cut a bunch of turkeys from the new state
budget, which is lower than last year's.
Crist, who is trim and does calisthenics nearly every morning, is afso
working with the school system to establish more physical education class-
es and is encouraging Florida's children to be healthy and physically fit.
After about six months as governor-Crist's political honeymoon con-
tinues. Usually honeymoons are over in 90 days or less.

Florida Museum Opens New Shark Exhibit

Bring Your Fossils And "Stump the Smithsonian Paleontologists"


At 60 feet long, Megalodon was
the largest shark that ever lived and
a dominant marine predator. Sharks
are at risk today, with recent popu-
lation declines attributed to
humans. Though Megalodon van-
ished 2 million years ago, its fasci-
nating story inspires lessons for sci-
ence and shark conservation.
The Florida Museum of Natural
History tells this remarkable story
in its exciting new national travel-
ing exhibition, "Megalodon: Larg-
est Shark that Ever Lived," which
opened June 16. The exhibition fea-
tures a 60-foot-long walk-through
sculpture and highlights the evolu-
tion, biology and misconceptions
regarding giant prehistoric sharks.
"The Megalodon exhibit gives us
the chance to showcase current
museum research and our extensive
paleontology collections," said
Florida Museum assistant director
for exhibits Darcie MacMahon.
"Who can imagine a 60-foot shark
cruising all the world's oceans?
The evolution and extinction of this
giant beast capture our imagina-
tions and inspire us to learn about
shark evolution in general and the
importance of shark conservation
today."
As unique as Megalodon was, so
too is the exhibition that tells the
story of this enormous creature.
The exhibition showcases both fos-
sil and modem shark specimens as
well as full-scale models from sev-
eral collections. Visitors enter a
full-size sculpture of Megalodon
through massive jaws and discover
this shark's history and the world it
inhabited, including its size, struc-
ture, diet, lifespan, relatives, neigh-
bors, evolution and extinction.
"Megalodon: Largest Shark that
Ever Lived" also, provides details
on improving the health of our
oceans and survival of threatened
species. Recent worldwide declines
are attributed to commercial and


sport overfishing. Scientists esti-
mate humans kill 100 million
sharks, skates and rays each year,
and the life history of most shark
species makes it difficult for popu-
lations to rebound. For those won-
dering why we need sharks, the
Megalodon exhibition asks guests
to consider the marine food web
domino effect caused by overfish-
ing.
Another exhibition section
describes how this animal contin-
ues to fascinate many, elevating
Megalodon to near cult status.
From biker jackets to postage
stamps, the exhibition explains the
many ways Megalodon remains a
part of human culture through art,
literature, music and film.
"Megalodon: Largest Shark that
Ever Lived" was produced by the
Florida Museum of Natural History
with support from the National
Science Foundation. The Florida
Museum will display the exhibition
through Jan. 6, 2008. Admission to
this exhibition is free, though
museum donations are gladly
accepted.

lodon/ or call (352) 846-2000.

Whether you're 16 or 60, a
healthy lifestyle involves keeping
track of your health care and hav-

inoculations. One of the most
important annual exams for women
is. the Pap smear. This test checks
for cell changes in your cervix
caused by sexually transmitted dis-

Pap smear can find the cell changes
ehrly enough for treatment before
the cells turn cancerous.
SYou can learn more about the risk

Emergency Management Simulates Disaster


By BRETT JARNAGIN
,For The Herald-Advocate
What would happen to Hardee
"County if there was a sudden threat
of Avian Influenza?
The Office of Emergency Man-
agement recently simulated this
event with the cooperation of
,almost 10 organizations from
around the county.
The scenario was tied to an inten-
tional effort by a person to bring the
feared bird flu into the county.
During the exercise, the infected
concentrated his efforts on the
courthouse annex, forcing those
who work there to evacuate.
In order to keep business going
as usual during a disaster, the coun-
ty relies on the Continuity of
Operations contingency plan. It
dictates what parts,of the govern-
ment will remain open during a


time of emergency.
"The purpose of the Continuity
of Operations is to let everyone in
the county government know
where they should be in the event
of an emergency," said Rich
Shepard, director of emergency
management.
Everyone from the annex was
successfully evacuated to the
Emergency Management Office.
"We were able to get everyone
over and keep business up and run-
ning as usual throughout the exer-
cise," said a pleased Shepard.
Shepard attributes the success of
the operation to the tremendous
amount of cooperation that was
required from the different groups.
The countywide organizations
involved during the exercise
included Hardee County Fire-


Rescue, Hardee Amateur Radio
Group, the Red Cross, the Health
Department, the Wauchula Police
Department, the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, Hardee County


Public Works and Florida Hospital.
"It was a great opportunity to test
ourselves in a controlled environ-
ment, and I believe it was a great
success," said Shepard.

County Delays Impact Fees


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County will not imple-
ment its impact fees until Jan. 1.
During its meeting last week, the
Hardee County Commission opted
to delay its impact fees for six
months, from the July 1 proposed
starting date to Jan. 1.
The Hardee County Builders
Association appealed to the board
to delay its impact fees to allow
prospective homeowners and
builders to get going on their pro-
jects. Once started, a project has to
be completed within three years or
be subject to the impact fees.
The commission will schedule a
public hearing because the original
ordinance approving impact fees
has to be amended.
Also, the commission had autho-
rized the required 90-day notice of
its intent to implement school
impact fees about Oct. 1. That and
the warehouse impact fees slated to
begin Oct. 1 are also postponed
until Jan. 1.

In other business at last week's


meeting, the commission:
Appointed builder/ plumber
Benny Hash to complete the term
of the late Thurmon Bell on the
Construction Industry Licensing
Board. The term continues until
Dec. 1, 2009. Hash is currently
president of the Hardee County
Builders Association and past
member of the Affordable Housing
Advisory Committee.
Appointed Donna Jeffers
Powell to the Indigent Health Care
Board to replace John Gill, who has
served his maximum two years on
the board. Powell has 20 years
experience in the nursing field and
brings that expertise to the board
which approves payment of hospi-
tal bills for indigent county resi-
dents.
Changed the position of
Payroll Specialist to pay grade 21,
at a salary range of $25,111.22 to
$34,616.09. Nancy Stevens recent-
ly retired from the then pay
grade 23 position which coordi-
nates employee pay with the Clerk
of Courts designee responsible for
issuing checks.


Approved Resolution 07-24
in support of a multi-county com-
munity transportation coordinator
and formation of a local coordinat-
ing board as recommended by the
overseeing agency, Central Florida
Regional Planning Council.
Members of the board will come
from service agencies and resident
representatives from Hardee,
Highlands and Okeechobee coun-
ties to set and approve a budget and
criteria for Transportation Dis-
advantaged trips for elderly and
disabled indigent residents.




CONCENTRATION


Majors All-Stars Go To State


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Majors All-Stars
split its final two games to be
District 7 runner-up and qualify for
the state championships.
After coming up the loser's
bracket, Hardee had a return match-
up against Wahneta on June 19.
Matt Grace took the mound and
had a stirring performance, walking
one and allowing only three hits
against Wahneta in the 3-2 victory,
which automatically earned the
Majors All-Stars a trip to
Okeechobee the weekend of July
14. Both winners and runners-up
advance to the state tourney.
The double-elimination district
tournament was held at Fort
Meade. In this semi-final game,
Grace limited Wahneta to seven
men on base to claim the win.
Hardee led off with a score in the
first inning. Jacob Altman and
Kramer Royal hit back-to-back sin-
gles. Altman was retired on a Luke
Palmer fielder's choice, but Royal


raced home on a Vince Grimsley
hit. Wahneta left one runner strand-
ed. It was 1-0.
Hardee picked up another score
in the second frame. Mason Gough
singled up the middle and went to
second on a passed ball. With two
away, Luke Winter doubled to cen-
ter and Gough flew home. Again,
Wahneta left one runner stranded.
Hardee led 2-0.
It was the same in the third
inning. Altman singled and ad-
vanced on hits by Palmer to cross
home plate. Wahneta went down in
order, with Grace picking up a pair
of strikeouts. It was 3-0.
Although Hardee left runners on
base in the fourth, fifth and sixth
innings, none got home. Wahneta
attempted a rally in the home half
of the sixth, plating two runners on
an error, double and single before a
ground-out ended its hopes. Hardee
won 3-2.
Other members of the winning
team were Kris Johnson, Cody
Dean, Colton Mills, Justin


Forrester and John Michael
Chason.
Hardee's next challenge was to
beat defending state champion
East Lakeland team twice as it had
no losses. Johnson was on the
mound for Hardee.
Neither team scored in the open-
ing inning. In the second East
Lakeland used walks and a hit to
bring two runners home and take a
2-0 lead. In the home half of the
inning, Grimsley led off with his
second homer of the tournament,
this one over the right field fence. It
was 2-1.
That was as close as Hardee
would come. East Lakeland added
an insurance run in the top of the.
fifth on a walk and back-to-back
singles. Hardee accepted the sec-
ond-place trophy and each member
of the squad also received a trophy.
Information for this article was
supplied by Tanya Royal. Other
teams are invited to provide their
results as quickly as possible.


Experts on Elizabethan cuisine contend that the "funeral baked
meats" Hamlet makes so much of were meat-pies.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
THE CARDBOARD BOX
Once upon a time, there was a man who lived in a cardboard box. It
wasn't much to speak of, but he called it "home". Day after day, he' ttued
from his foraging expeditions around town and found sanctuary and rest at
the end of an alley in his box.
But an angel from heaven interrupted his meager existence on'day by
appearing in splendor at the head of his alley.
"Get up, John! Your prayer has been answered!"
John scrambled up, blinking his eyes in the early morning. Then he hur-
ried out to the sidewalk to pursue the angel.
They passed rapidly through the slum area of town, then out into sub-
urbia. The angel stopped at last in front of a beautiful two-story colonial
mansion. The lawns were well clipped. Flowers clustered beside the big
front door.
"It's yours," the angel said. Then he dropped the keys in John's hand
- and vanished.
About a month later, the angel returned to see how John was getting on.
He knocked at the front door but no-one answered. He opened the door and
stepped inside. Everything looked in perfect shape. The angel walked
through the downstairs, then upstairs where he noted that none of the beds
looked slept in.
At last he went downstairs to the basement and here he saw the old,
familiar cardboard box stationed in the middle of the floor. A sleepy-eyed
John crawled out.
"John! What in the world are you doing in that box? This whole house
is yours. You don't need to sleep in that thing any more!"
John grinned sheepishly. "I know" he said, "An I'm ever so grateful for
this place. It's so magnificent I hardly dare to use it. My old box isn't much,
I know, but I feel more comfortable in it."
How many people actually feel this way about the Christian life? It's
lovely and grand but too wonderful for every day use. They prefer their old
habits, their own ways of thinking and acting. As a result, they never move
"upstairs" to the kind of living God has prepared for them!

Criticized By Former Resident

COURTESY PHOTO
James Massey of Wauchula received a big surprise as he celebrated his 50th birthday with a bar-
becue on June 16. He was surprised by his mother, Lucy Massey, and by his sisters, Ann Medford
and Cathy Criswell. All traveled from Rome, Ga., along with Criswell's husband, Kenny, and

20 years he has lived here, it was the biggest surprise that his mother made the trip for the first
time. She is 72 years old. Also helping Massey celebrate were many local friends, wife Shelly,
daughter Reggie, and grandson Parker.

Heather Heine, daughter of
Michael Heine and granddaughter
of Alberta Weidman of Wauchula
made the Dean's List at the
University of South Florida.
The Dean's list is one of the
highest academic honors given
while in college.
Heather's asis6 elected to be
in the International Honor
Society, being at the top 15% of
her graduating class.
She is a 2004 graduate of
Hardee Senior High.
She recieved her AA degree
from South Florida Community.
She is currently a senior at USF
with plans to transfer to Warner
Southern this fall and complete
her degree in Business Manage-
ment. Soc6:28p


Dear Editor:
Being a Hardee County resident
the majority of my life and analyz-
ing how grass roots apathy is some-
times trivialized throughout small
towns, I felt I needed to respond to
an incident that occurred May 13,
2007. I could not imagine my out-
look on government power would
change so drastically after just one
injustice performed against my
brother.
Five of us were playing pool
with music playing at my brother's
house when six officers showed up
due to an apparent noise violation.
Approximately 10 minutes later,
after we had complied with the
original request, one of the original
officers returned and proceeded to
arrest my brother as he tried to clar-
ify the situation. He was acquitted
(three days later) for a charge of
"disorderly conduct" with a Wau-
chula police officer.
Being a witness to the incident I
was enraged and upset how a
deputy acted towards my brother
and myself as U.S. citizens. I have
never been arrested for any type of
offense or incident. I feel my fami-
ly and I have been respectable
Hardee County citizens for many*
years.
I am the first to admit when my
brother is offensive of any kind. He
did nothing illegal in this situation
accept act in an appropriate or
"carefree" manner with the officer.
I am writing today not just for him
but for the others who have been
seen or been a part of misused
authority.
So the question I ask is why do
certain individuals abuse too much
government power? There is
money, greed, control, and self-
interests that place certain people
with a sense of entitlement.
Tolerating abusive power with
national government officials is
widely the norm but not generally
accepted. I truly except more from
local government officials because
being from the same community
they should not exploit their
authority in certain high ranking
positions.
The definition of government is
a body that has the power to make
and the authority to enforce rules
and laws within a civil, corporate,
religious, academic, or other orga-
nization or group. In its broadest
sense, "to govern" means to rule
over or supervise, whether over a
state, a town, a set group of people,
or a collection of people.
- .So on thelocal level'the local
law enforcement would be consid-
ered the arms of government. So
these are the people we trust with
our lives and families' lives to do
the right thing.
The first amendment states
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of reli-
gion, or prohibiting the free exer-
cise thereof; or abridging the free-
dom of speech, or of the press, or
the right of the people peaceably to
assemble, and to petition the gov-


ernment for a redress of griev-
ances."
So how when it comes to peace-
fully standing up for what you
believe in and know what is right
you are thrown in jail? The first
amendment just told me there will
never be a law that reprimands you
when speaking your mind in a
peaceful nonviolent way.
So how can law enforcement
officers do that very thing? Is it due
to lack of knowledge or education?
Maybe, they do not know how to
respond to someone who is making
valid points; their first response is
just to arrest them. Their thought
process is to arrest first, ask ques-
tions last and that alone is a viola-
tion of a persons' rights as a citizen.
Could it still be personal vendettas
from high school (as sad as that
sounds)? Could it have to do with
local small town funding? Maybe
we are not paying enough to attract
qualified candidates from other
areas who want to do the best they
can.
Whatever the case maybe there
needs to be a change, and that
change needs to be soon. For these
few bad individuals potentially
through their actions and ways can
infect a whole police force and
could end up costing the city of
Wauchula a large sum of money.
"Once a government is commit-
ted to the principle of silencing the
voice of opposition, it has only one
way to go, and that is down the path

4B The Herald-Advocate, June 28, 2007


History: Profile Of John Collier


Edited by Spessard Stone from Kyle VanLandingham's revised article onf
John Collier in "South Florida Pioneers 15/16" (Jan. April 1978), and
used with permission.
John Collier, according to various U.S. censuses records, was born
possibly as early as 1815 or as late as 1824. He is believed to have been a
son of Henry Collier of Dooly County, Ga, who died in 1840; however,
John's name is not mentioned among the heirs. Among the heirs listed in
the estate proceedings is Piety Collier Crews, and it has long been estab-
lished that she was a sister of John Collier, the subject of this sketch.
John Collier was first married to Caroline Hall. They were living in
Dooly county as late as 1846 but were residing in Gadsden County, Fla.,
when the 1850 census was taken. The 1860 census for Lafayette County,
Fla., shows John Collier and wife "Louiza." Whether she was actually
Caroline Hall or was a second wife is not known.
During the early to mid-1850s, John Collier and family moved to
Manatee County. His oldest son, William Green Collier, served from early
1864 to April 1865 in Capt. F.A. Hendry's Company, CSA. His other adult
sons, Calvin Collier and John Collier Jr., both enlisted at Fort Myers in May
1864 in Company B, 2nd Florida Cavalry, U.S. Army.
In Manatee County on Nov. 6, 1866, John registered the following
mark and brand: JC. On a roll of persons between the ages of 18 and 45
liable for military duty in Manatee County taken July 15, 1869, the names
of John Collier Sr., Green Collier and Calvin Collier appear. Manatee
'County mark and brand records show the following entries for Nov. 3,
1869: Mary Collier, brand AC; Pleasant Collier, brand PC; Henry Collier,
brand HC; George Collier, brand 99; and Bryant Collier, brand 9.
John Collier Sr. was married to Mary Locklear Conyer on Oct. 9, 1869,
according to Manatee County marriage records. The family Bible gives the
date as Sept. 24, 1869.
John Collier and family are shown in the 1870 census for Manatee

County. His personal estate at that time was valued at $15,000. In the 1880
census the John "Colyer" family was residing in Brevard County. During
the 1880s, they moved back to Manatee County and were living there in
1885 when the state census was taken.
Kirk Munroe, the noted adventurer and writer, was on an expedition of
the Kissimmee River and was staying at Basinger in 1882 when John
Collier moved his family from southern Brevard (present-day Okeechobee
County) to Manatee County.
He made the following entry in his diary for Feb. 19, 1882: "Old man
Colyer with 3 wives and 14 children came over river with teams, moving
to Charlie Apopka Creek. They are camped near the house." On Feb. 20,
1882, he wrote: "Pierce (John M. Pearce) and Mann went with Colyer to
Istakpoga creek today and on return reported steamer in site of Micko's
Bluff."
In Nov. 1885, John Collier faced charges of adultery in the Manatee
County Circuit Court. A sworn deposition from Samantha Jacobs relates
that "she (Jacobs) knows that Collier does not live with his wife and a
woman named Minerva Crawford visits at the Collier Place. The same M.
Crawford has six children and she claims that John Collier is the father of
four of them."
Jacobs went on to say that she herself "has one child and she knows the
father of the child and states that J. Collier is the father of her child." She
also claimed that Collier "induced her to live with him under the promise
of marrying her when he obtained a divorce from his first wife."
A check of the 1885 census of Manatee County reveals that Minerva
Crawford was a head of family with six children. It has been confirmed that
at least one of them, Virginia, born Jan. 29, 1875, was the daughter of John
Collier and Minerva Crawford. Virginia married Jefferson Davis
Thompson, April 17, 1893, in DeSoto County.
John Collier Sr. was married to Samantha Jacobs on Feb. 18, 1886.
Their daughter, Dora Collier Hall, remembered her family during her early
childhood living about four miles west of present-day Avon Park.
John Collier's will, dated Jan. 6, 1892, was filed in the DeSoto County
Courthouse. He mentioned his children: Green, Elizabeth Green, Calvin,
John Jr., George, Bryant, Pleasant, Isabelle, Martha, Perry, Dora and Berry.
Collier died on June 2, 1896, and was buried in the Bowling Green
Cemetery. His grave is marked by erroneously gives his death date as June
27, 1897. The grave marker states that he was 72 years of age.
After Collier's death, his widow married Matthew Talley on Aug. 4,
1896.
The birth dates for John Collier's first 12 children are in many cases
estimates and educated guesses because the available data is conflicting. A
family Bible lists the birthdates for the children, but it is now obvious that
the dates given for he oldest children are erroneous. Consequently, census
records have been used to establish the dates.
John Collier's children are as follows:
1. William Green Collier, born March 22, 1840-43; died Feb. 16,
1920; married Mary Ann Wiggins, July 8, 1869.
2. Mary Elizabeth Collier, born 1842-43; married (unknown) Green.
3. Calvin C. Collier, born June 22, 1842-43, according to pension

1866; (2) Beulah I. Whidden Sparkman, Oct. 10, 1897.
4. Irene Collier, born 1845-47; married (1) Lewis Jenkins; (2)
Richmond R. Crews, Oct. 9, 1869. Crews was a former slave of
Piety Collier Crews (Mrs. Dempsey D. Crews Sr.).
5. John Collier Jr., born June 22, 1846, according to pension state
ment tombstone has June 22, 1853, but must be in error; died Feb.
1, 1934; married (1) Sallie Lewis, Dec. 12, 1865; (2) Mattie
Kemp, Oct. 16, 1902; (3) Letitia Guest Skipper, Jan. 2, 1915.
6. Henry "Bunk" Collier, born Dec. 25, 1855-56; died July 17, 1920;
married Ann Gillespie, Sept. 25, 1872 (in 1885 Manatee County
census his wife's name is given as Texas).
7. James B. Collier, born 1857.
8. Catherine Collier, born April 20, 1858, according to Bible but
could be as early as 1853.
9. George M. Collier, born March 18, 1859, according to Bible but
tombstone has 1858; died Aug. 11, 1937; married Susan North,
Nov. 22, 1883. '
10. Wiley Bryant Collier, born June 18, 1860, according to Bible; died
Jan. 4, 1921; married Jane E. Whidden, May 12, 1881.

Sen. J.D. Alexander Honored

By Nursery Association


State Sen. J.D. Alexander (R-
Lake Wales) was presented last
week with the 2007 Legislator of
the Year award by the Florida
Nursery, Growers and Landscape
Association for his leadership, hard
work and dedication to Florida's
nursery and landscape industry.
"I thank the Florida Nursery,
Growers and Landscape Associ-
ation for presenting me with this
award, and I look forward to con-
tinuing to support and represent the
agribusiness industry in the state
legislature," said Alexander. "As a
citrus grower, I understand the
challenges faced by the Florida
agribusiness industry and the
importance of sustaining a produc-
tive industry for the many
Floridians who work in and depend
on the industry."
"Sen. Alexander through his leg-
islative leadership and understand-
ing of agriculture, small business


and nursery issues was an absolute
logical choice, and he is a true
advocate of the nursery and land-
scaping industry," said Director of
Government Affairs Jim Spratt,
who presented the award to
Alexander. "He led the charge inr
the Senate and fought tirelessly for
appropriations set aside for the
University of Florida IFUS pro-
grams that will benefit, the entire
state and the nursery and landscape
industry."
Alexander represents Senate
District 17 which includes parts of
DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, High-
lands, Okeechobee, Polk, and St.
Lucie Counties. He was first elect-
ed to the Florida Senate in 2002
and has been subsequently re-elect-
ed. After completing his first term,
Alexander served as the Senate
Majority Whip for the 2004-2006
term in the Florida Senate.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered rains in most areas aided crop and pasture growth during the
week of June 18 24. Rain amounts totaled from traces at Jay, Ocklawaha,
and Okahumpka, to nearly three and a half inches at Tampa. However, the
rainfall skipped some localities, especially those in the Big Bend area and
western parts of the northern Peninsula. Temperatures for the week in the
major cities averaged from one degree below normal to one degree above.
Daytime highs averaged in the 80s and 90s. Jay reported at least one daily
high at 101 degrees. Nighttime lows averaged in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.
FIELD CROPS
Cotton and peanut growth were boosted in those localities receiving
recent rains. However, some fields remain in very poor condition with
plants wilting due to high temperatures and a lack of rain. Some producers
continued to replant acreage where seeds failed to germinate. Reporters
rated peanut condition as 18 percent very poor, 40 percent poor, 30 percent
fair, and 12 percent good with 15 percent of the crop pegged. Virtually all
dryland corn acreage has been negatively impacted due to drought. Soils
remain very dry in some localities because recent rainfall skipped these
areas. Topsoil moisture was rated adequate and subsoil moisture was rated
short to adequate over thesouthern Peninsula. Topsoil moisture was rated
very short and subsoil moisture was rated short in the Panhandle.
Elsewhere, both topsoil and subsoil moisture rated very short.

VEGETABLES
Most harvesting in the central and southern Peninsula is finished for the
season. However, Dade County producers continued to cut okra.
Watermelon and organic vegetable harvesting in the Suwannee Valley area
is expected to continue during early July. Watermelon harvest also advanced
at a rapid rate in Washington County. In the Quincy area, growers are
expected to market tomatoes through mid-July. Potato digging is expected
to finish up around Palatka this week. Some light amounts of blueberries,
cucumbers and squash were also picked during the week.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition is very poor to good with most in
poor condition due to drought. Stock ponds are very low or dry. Pasture
grass is growing but slowly. New crop hay is being fed to cattle as pasture
grass is very short due to drought. Cattle condition is mostly poor. In the
northern areas, pasture condition is very poor to fair with most in fair con-
dition, and cattle condition is mostly fair. In the central areas, pasture con-
dition is very poor to poor and cattle condition is very poor to fair. In the
southwest areas, pasture condition is very poor to good, depending on
recent rainfall. Pastures are beginning to green up and producers have been
able to reduce supplemental hay feeding. In the southeast, beef and dairy
production have significantly improved due to sporadic rainfall over the last
two weeks. Statewide, cattle condition ranges from very poor to good with
most in fair condition.

During the past week, it has beenhot with temperatures ranging from*
the upper 60s to low 70s at night, and the mid-90s during the da\. Short
afternoon and evening scattered rainfalls were sporadic in most citrus pro-
ducing counties. Southern and interior citrus areas received just less than
one inch of rainfall, while all other monitored areas had a quarter of an inch

low water levels in canals and ditches, and some afternoon tree wilt. Even
with the dry weather, overall the citrus trees look good, and the fruit is siz-
ing well. Valencia harvest is winding down and it is being picked for fresh
squeezed juice. It is expected that small quantities will still be harvested
throughout the summer. Caretakers are irrigating heavily, mowing, fertiliz-
ing, and applying summer oils. Those growers who are able to get resets are
putting new trees in the ground.

As water travels over the land or underground it can pick up substances or contaminants such as
microbes, inorganic and organic chemicals, and radioactive substances. All drinking water,
including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts
of some contaminants. It's important to remember that the presence of contaminants does not
necessarily pose a health risk.

The system continues to have a MCL violation for Sulfate and Total Dissolved Solids, which are monitored quarterly. Sulfate usually is
introduced into water from soil leaching. Some studies indicate that high sulfate levels may cause mild diarrhea in some people. Total
Dissolved Solids (TDS) usually are from erosion of natural deposits.
Bowling Green failed to properly) sample for Uranium in 2006; as a result the City will take additional samples in 2007.
MCLs are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated constituents, a person would
have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health
effect.
In 2004, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found no potential sources of contamination near
the wells or in the water. Source water assessments are posted at http://www.dcp.state.fl.us/swappt/. .

Harris Heads To Kentucky


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
Johnny Ray Harris has made his
choice.
The 2007 Hardee High graduate
recently was signed by the
University of the Cumberlands in
Williamsburg, Ky. He was among a
half dozen other football players
from Florida, and over two dozen
signees from Michigan, Tennessee,
Georgia and Kentucky for the
recruiting Class of 2011.
- Other Florida recruits came from
Bradenton (Lakewood Ranch
High), Lakeland (two from Lake
Gibson High) and Gainesville (two
from Buchholz High).
' Harris .played tight end and
defensive end for the Wildcats all
four years in high school. In his
senior year, he was named to the
Class 3A All-State Defensive


Team. He excelled as defensive
lineman with 89 tackles, eight
sacks and two fumble recoveries.
He was a hefty part of the Wildcats'
44-game win streak and helped the
'Cats advance to the regional semi-
finals in his senior season.
At the signing last week, Harris
said he was "a little nervous, but
excited" about attending college in
Kentucky this fall. He will play as
defensive end for the Patriots under
the direction of second-year head
coach John Bland and his staff. A
trip to Kentucky for the July 14 ori-
entation will help him get a better
feel of the campus and football pro-
gram.
"Johnny Ray really knew where
he was going, and we are all
extremely proud of him," said for-
mer Wildcats head coach Derren
Bryan.


Cumberland is in the east divi-
sion of the National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA)
Division I Mid-South Conference.
It has had a football program since
1985. The maroon-and-white play
their home games in the James H.
Taylor II Stadium in Williamsburg.
Last season they went 6-4 overall,
3-2 in conference, just missing a
playoff bid. They placed 11 players
on the All-Conference Team.
The 2007 season opens Sept. 1
with the traditional rivalry with
Union College in Corbin, Ky. in the
"Battle of the Brass Lantern." The
season continues through the sea-
son finale at another Kentucky
rival, Pikeville College.
"I wish him well and hope that he
takes advantage of this great oppor-
tunity," said Hardee Senior Higt
School principal Mike Wilkinson.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Working around thundershowers,
the 2007 Women's Church Softball
League got all its games in last
week.
The ladies play on Tuesday and
Thursday evenings at the Recre-
ation Complex fields off Altman
Road north of the high school.
Spectators are welcome to come
cheer their favorite teams. There is
one game on Field 2 and two on
Field I each of those evenings.
There is no admission fee.
At the end of the second week of
play, the standings have changed
just a little. Wauchula First Metho-
dist remains unbeaten with a 3-0
record. St. Michael's Catholic is at
3-1. First Christian had three games
after being idle last week due to
Vacation Bible School and is tied
with St. Alfonso's Chapel, each
with 2-1 records.
Following along are.New Vision
Worship Center, New Hope Baptist
and Celebration-Hardee campus.
The 6:45 game on Field 1 last
Tuesday was a thriller, with St.
Michael's barely getting past St.
Alfonso's 16-15.
Sami Jo Morgan homered and
doubled to pace St. Michael's. Lori
Dees added four hits and was the
only four-score batter. Morgan and
Virginia Jackson each came around
to score three times. Stephanie
Roberson added twin hits and tal-
lies, and Glenda Eures, Amy
Franks, Emily Ward and Katie
Boyette scored once each.
Maggie Olvera tripled and
Rosemary Rojas, Liberty Mush-
rush, Gloria Solis and Nora
Compos each doubled. Rojas,
Mushrush, Olvera and Solis each
circled the bases three times. Sonia
Deemer added twin scores and
Irma Arce added a solo score.
he late game on Field 1 was also
a nail-biter, as New Hope edged
First Christian 6-5.
Lori Barberee had the only long-
ball hit for New Hope, a double.
Erin Garza was the only batter to
cross home plate twice. Julie Farr,
Regan Davenport, Melissa Hartley

"I lovelyou so," bragged a young,
man to his girlfriend, "that I'd scale
the highest mountain or swim the
deepest river to sit at your feet."
But when he left, he promised,
"I'll come back tomorrow night- if
it doesn't rain."
Like that boy, we declare our
love for the Lord with our lips, but
we deny it with our lives. For the
Bible says, "You that love the Lord
hate evil."
Evil isn't a trifle, it's a tragedy;
it's not a plaything, it's a poison.
It's not enough to avoid evil, you
must abhor it. You can't love the
Lord without hating the evil He
hates.

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


SIGN OF THE TIMES
What follows consists of snatches of conversations 1 have overheard
during the weeks since The Tampa Tribune announced its decision to pull
out of Hardee County. The dialogue is pieced together here as one conver-
sation, set in one place. The characters are fictitious.
The Tampa Tribune has pulled out of Hardee County. It's hard to
believe, but understandable as the company, according to a source high up
on the corporate ladder, was losing big bucks here.
As I waited my turn for a haircut" I asked how long the Tribune had
been in Hardee County.
"I'm 81 years old and I've read it every day since I've knew how to
read," Bud McBiddy said. "My daddy read it when I was a boy. I had to
haul off and run to our mailbox by the hard road and fetch it for him every
day before I caught the school bus. Daddy wouldn't do nothing of a morn-
ing until he'd had his coffee and read the Tribune. I expect I'll go through
withdrawals when it quits coming."
"You can have it mailed to you," I said.
He shook his head so hard that Walt, who was cutting his hair, had to
yank back his clippers.
"Ain't the same as having it waiting for you in your front yard every
morning when you wake up. Come by mail, it'll be a day late, at least, and
who wants to read old news? I dang sure don't! By then I'll have already
seen it on the TV."
"It's the principle of the thing," said the Rev. Dr. Thomas, who sat in
the middle barber's chair. This is the thank you Hardee County gets for gen-
erations of loyal support?"
"I hear they're losing lots of money on us," said Jake Barnes, the shop
owner who was cutting Thomas' hair. "I'm surprised they haven't pulled
out sooner."
"They've made enough money in Hardee County to buy a bank!"
McBiddy exclaimed. "Maybe they ain't making as much as they want to
right now, what with the price of gas and all, but I guarantee you they're not
losing not if you look at the long haul and not just the short run."
Brenda Barnes, Jake's wife, who was putting an.apron on a man I did-
n't know, looked at me. "You ought to write about this. Tell them how we
feel about it."
"I'm afraid feelings don't enter the equation," said Thomas. "It's about
the bottom line, and feelings don't add any dollar signs to it."
McBiddy snorted. "Amen to that, preacher! It's like that dad-blamed
Wal-Mart down yonder. You think anybody there cares how many little


stores they run out of business? Take John Spivey.. That store in Bowling
Green has been in his family since the '40s, now it's boarded up like a hur-
ricane was coming!"
The Rev. Dr. Thomas sighed. "I'm afraid it's a sign of the times. I'm
afraid America, as we know it, is wobbling on her last leg."
"What's going on, acher?" Bud McBiddy asked. "Is the Second
Coming nigh?"
Thomas shrugged. "The signs all point to it, but who knows? Jesus said
no one, not even Him, knew the day of His return. Only the Father knows
that."
The stranger whose hair Brenda was cutting stroked his beard and
spoke up. "What's going on, my friends, is that we've been lieu to. America
has been sold out."
"Who done it?" McBiddy snapped.
"Read a book by Jim Man's called "Rule by Secrecy."
"Us here in Hardee County are too stupid to read," McBiddy said.
"That's how come they quit bringing us the Tribune."
"What's the book about?" I asked.
Secrets. Secret societies. Cabals. International conspiracies. A peek
into human history you never got in high school."
"What's it got to do with us not getting the Tribune no more?"
The man looked at his reflection in the mirror on the wall behind me
and did not say anything.
"I think we're going to have to read the book and find out for our-
selves," I said.
"It's a shame and a dang disgrace," McBiddy said.
"A sign of the times," said Thomas.
I hung around until gray beard was gone.
"Who is that man, Jake?"
"Never saw him before. He said his name was Jim."
"I think I'll buy that book," I said.
"Me, too," said McBiddy.

Deal Me Out!
By Marjorie Bateman
Hardee Drug Abuse Prevention Coalition


WHICH ONE ARE YOU?
If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.
At the beginning of this month I happened to be visiting Indianapolis.
The front page of the Indianapolis Star ran a story about a former Colts
quarterback hosting a graduation party at which alcohol was being con-
sumed by teens.
The article talked about the practice of adults hosting parties often
at graduation time where teens are allowed to consume alcoholic bever-
ages. The adults may or may not directly provide the alcohol, and they may
have "ground rules," such as handing over car keys or staying in the house
or on the property, in an effort to make the event "safe."
These ground rules only provide a false sense of security. Teens may
become so intoxicated thatfthey suffer alcohol poisoning, disappear and
drown in their own vomit, or injure or kill themselves or someone else
because they get behind the wheel of a car before they are completely sober.
While most parents will deny that it is a common event, teens know the
regularity in which these events take place.
Parents who think they are providing a safe environment for the
inevitable experimentation do not stop to gather all the facts. The first fact
that must be considered is that it is illegal to provide alcohol to minors.
Period. Second is that you are putting young people at risk, and this risk can
come back to haunt you.
Last year, Columbia University's National Center on Addiction &
Substance Abuse said most people are not aware of the reality on this issue.
Its report showed that 99 percent of parents said they would not serve alco-
hol at their teens' parties. But nearly a third of teen partygoers had attend-
ed drinking parties where parents were present.
Teens report that it has gone on for a long time. And, without dating
myself, this was true even when I was in high school.
Parents need to realize they are opening themselves up to many liabil-
ity issues, both criminal and civil.
Parents need to be good role models and teach that you can have a
good time without the aid of alcohol. Whether teenage drinking is per-
ceived to be a tradition or right of passage, it is time to make a change, and
this can only begin to happen if adults throughout a community set the
example and lead the way.
Many societal problems are the result of substance abuse, which often
begins at a tender age. These problems cost each and every citizen money
in the form of their tax dollars.
The average addict goes through rehab seven times before successful-
ly maintaining a sober life. Many of these people do not have insurance that
pays for this treatment, which means that the programs are paid for through
tax dollars your tax dollars.
It is an enormous problem that must be dealt with in every communi-
ty and neighborhood in the country.

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger


CHANGE
Spring has rapidly warmed into summer, and many changes are hap-
pening here in the Hammock.
Summer migrants, like the summer tanagers, eastern kingbirds and red-
headed woodpeckers fly in. Baby animals such as white-tailed deer and rac-
coons are common, and the number of people present at the park on any
given day drops dramatically. These are just a few of seasonal changes
occurring here in Highlands Hammock State Park.
Other changes you might notice dre within our staff. Several staff
members are relocating, leaving or just coming back, and we wanted to give
you an update.
Park Ranger Dave Crandall, who joined us four years ago after mov-
ing up from Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, will now be moving to the
Clermont area. "I really enjoyed being here," says Dave. "I think Highlands
Hammock is a real treasure of the Sebring area and I will really miss it."
Dave's favorite aspects of the park include the ones most often men-
tioned, the wildlife and plant diversity. "This community also has a very
proud heritage, and I've met some very interesting people while I've been
here," he adds.
Another rather interesting person you might have met out here recent-
ly is Park Ranger Leesha Miller. Leesha "returned" to us. as a park ranger
about six months ago. Leesha had previously been employed as a state park
patrol officer, and had been in service to our park quite a few years ago in
that position. Leesha always loved the park and hoped to return here one
day as a ranger.
While that did finally happen, Leesha was recently offered a security
management position that she just couldn't pass up. Unfortunately she, too,
will be leaving us soon.
You might remember that Park Ranger Scott Paterson was assigned to
our District 4 "Viper" Strike Team for this past winter's fire season. Ranger
Scott is taking a break from his duties with the team after spending hun-
dreds of hours either implementing prescribed burns or fighting wildfires
all over central and south Florida. Scott has greatly enjoyed all of his
adventures this past winter, and has many interesting stories about all that
he has seen and been part of during this busy fire season. Look for more on
those experiences in later articles.
Park Ranger Judy Buchanan is also back to the park after spending
eight days deployed as part of the "White" Fire Strike Team. Judy and nine
crew members were sent to the Seminole State Forest on wildfire suppres-
sion. Judy earned the nickname "Little Foot," mostly due to her ability to
drag long lengths of hose underneath 10-foot-high palmetto clumps in the
remote areas where her team fought fires.
"These guys were good! Each team member shared their expertise and
experience so that all of the team was able to come away from this fire with
more knowledge," says Judy.
Judy's favorite moment during this grueling experience was when the
care packages arrived. "All of us on the fire line received a gift packet with
silly things like paddle balls, water guns, lollypops and gum," Judy says. "It
was a real stress reliever and greatly appreciated."
As these and, undoubtedly, more changes occur, there are some things
that never change. Highlands Hammock State Park will always be a pro-
tected green space in our area, offering a heavenly glimpse of The Real
Florida that we all can appreciate.
Come visit soon and make some summer memories with your family.

Alpha & Omega Freedom Ministries of Wauchula


Don't worry about things -food, drink, and clothes. For you
already have life and a body and they are far more important
than what to eat and wear.
Matthew 6:25
Our life seems to be so full of worry, and all it does is cause us to have'
ulcers, strokes, heart attacks, and many other health problems. It proves our
faith is not doing too well and the only way to please God is by our faith.
Besides, worry is a sin and we should repent when we worry.
God takes care of the birds, animals and flowers, so what makes us
think He will not take care of us. Why should we Christians be like the hda-,
then? We take pride in providing for ourselves just like they do and yet God
is the One that makes the way for us to get the provisions we need. We
should be grateful and recognize that God sees our needs. If we give Him
first place in our lives and live as He wants us to, our needs will be met.
Sometimes we believe He has failed us and is not helping us, but He is
trying to get our attention with where our heart is and our attitudes. It would
be a good thing to choose a Golden Nugget that will help us put God first
and change our attitudes.

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply
that all who are laughed at are geniuses.

Bobby Hanchey, an Indian artifacts collector, speaks to the Safe and Smart Futures Enrichment
Summer Program students at the Hardee Junior High School on June 12. The program gives stu-
dents a chance to learn an enriching curriculum other than their standard studies during the
year. The students must earn the right to participate in the program, which is an extension of the
after-school program. Approximately 55 students are enrolled in the program which lasts during
the month of June. Middle photo shows Wyatt Maddox, an upcoming sixth grader, tries throwing
an atlati under the coaching and supervision of Bobby Hanchey while fellow students look on.
Bottom photo shows teacher Marie Lambert as she takes a turn trying to throw the dart. The atlatl
is a wooden shaft about two feet long that has a rounded tip which is placed in the end of a six-
foot dart. When thrown, the tool becomes an extension of the arm and propels the dart with 15
times more force than when- thrown by hand. The atlatl was a weapon used by prehistoric Indians
before the bow and arrow was invented around 500 A.D.

Light One Candle
By Dennis Heaney
President Of The Christophers


TONY DUNGY: A PORTRAIT IN FAITH
Last month, "Time" magazine published its list of the hundred most
influential people in the world. They broke down the list into various cate-
gories, including leaders and revolutionaries, scientists 'and thinkers, and
heroes and pioneers.
I was happy to see that one member of the last group is Tony Dungy,
head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, one of the most respected men in the
world of sports. This past season, he became the first African-American
coach in the NFL to win the Super Bowl.
I've been watching Tony Dungy for over 30 years, starting when he
was an outstanding quarterback for my University of Minnesota Golden
Gophers. He is the quintessential "class act," and it's not hard to understand
why people on and off the playing field look up to him.
A man of strong principles, he takes his job as a coach seriously.
Maybe that's why so many of those around him see him as a mentor and a
teacher. But it was a couple of columns by Rick Reilly in "Sports
Illustrated" that really told me all I needed to know about the quality of this
man.
Now, the first article was actually about another guy, Mark Lemke, a
truck driver from Iowa. He wrote to Reilly last summer to tell him all about
his son, Cory, a 19-year-old who had set a bunch of local golf records, been
an accomplished wrestler and above all, a great kid and his best pal.
Lemke said he'd been meaning to write Reilly for years, but had just never
gotten around to it until his son was killed in a motorcycle accident.
A lot of us read that story of a father's pride, love and grief. I bet more
than one dad or mom stopped to think for a moment about his or her own
children, about the brevity of life and the finality of death, before moving
onto other matters.
One of those readers was Dungy. But he didn't move on.
In a follow-up article that appeared a few weeks ago, Reilly wrote that
Dungy phoned Lemke to say, "I'm just calling to offer my condolences to
you and see if there's anything I can do to help you." Before you think,
well, that was a nice thing to do, understand that it-was a lot more. At
Christmas time a year earlier, Dungy's oldest son, James, 18, had hanged
himself.
The coach and the truck driver shared a terrible grief.
Over the following months, they stayed in close touch by e-mail and
phone. Reilly writes that "they go deep sometimes. Lemke gets hot at God
for taking Cory. Dungy tells him that's normal, but he adds that if they keep
their faith, 'we'll see them again.' "
Then the Colts make it to the Super Bowl and Dungy invites Lemke to
be his guest. The day before tfhe big game they meet in person for the first
time; they talk and they pray. The next day the coach makes history.
But for Mark Lemke, his friend Tony Dungy has done far more than
that. "He helped me keep my faith," he says. "He taught me that he and I.
we're not alone."
I can't imagine the loss these men have felt. I don't want to. No father
or mother should have to know the immeasurable anguish of burying a
child. But I completely agree with Reilly when he says that "there is a way
through the pain. And that way is through each other."
No matter what you've heard, nice guys don't finish last. Sometimes
they even wind up on the cover of "Time."
