No Panhandling In Wauchula!


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
People and businesses should be
free to enjoy life without being
approached by panhandlers.
That's the stance of an ordinance
adopted by the Wauchula City
Commission on Monday evening.
Because of complaints received
regarding panhandling in the down-
town area of the city, and its effect
on the public's "safe enjoyment of
the public places," such an ordi-
nance is necessary, says the pream-
ble of Ordinance 2007-07.
It goes on to define panhandling
and set penalties ranging from a
warning on first offense to a fine up
to $500 and/or a jail term of up to
60 days.
Basically, panhandling is follow-
ing a person with the intent of ask-
ing that person for money or other
things of value. It is approaching,
speaking to or soliciting a person in
a way likely to cause a reasonable
fear of damage or loss of property,
or intimidating a person into giv-
ing money or other things of value.
Continuing to solicit after a per-
son has given a negative response
to soliciting, intentionally touching
a person without their consent,

blocking or interfering with safe
passage of a pedestrian or vehicle,
or soliciting money from anyone
who is waiting in line for entry to a
building are all aspects of panhan-
dling which are forbidden.
Soliciting by the spoken word,
written or printed word, bodily ges-
tures or signs to obtain a donation
from an individual are forbidden
(This does not apply to approved
fund-raisers at specific locations).
The ordinance specifically pro-
hibits panhandling near any public

institution (bank, check-cashing

Not All Tees


Allowed For

HJH Dress Code
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
There's a big difference in appro-
priate T-shirts and polo-type shirts.
Hardee Junior High School
administrators made the difference
very specific last week while
addressing the concerns many par-
ents have about the new "Dress For
Success" attire plan.
"T-shirts cannot be just the solid
colors of grey, blue or orange," said
Assistant Principal Beverly
Cornelius. All T-shirts must have a
school or Wildcat logo on them, she
explained. "It could be an HJH
spirit tee, an HJH athletic team tee,
*an HJH club tee, or a T-shirt with
the Hardee Wildcat design."
In contrast, polo-type shirts must
be plain, with nothing embroidered
on them. They must have collars,
and either capped sleeves (for girls)
or short- or long-sleeves, depend-
ing on the weather. However, they
can only be in school colors, either

in 20 feet of an entrance or exit
from a public restroom.
.A panhandler may not solicit a
driver or occupant of a motor vehi-
cle on a public street. The solicitor
should not ask for funds to meet a
specific need when funds are avail-
able for that need or funds collect-
ed are not intended to meet that
need.
Finally, soliciting within six feet
of the entrance to a building with-
out the consent of the owner of the
building, or within 20 feet of any
pay telephone is prohibited.
The new ordinance replaces and
clarifies the previous panhandling
ordinance 2004-07.


FUNDRAISER FUN


County Looks At

Spending Cuts
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"We may be up the creek, but at
least notv. \,e h.,e -the paddle." .
County budget workshops begin
Monday with more than the usual
annual challenge.
When County Commissioners
start the annual page-by-page
review of the 2007-08 budget
effective Oct. 1, they will be faced
with trimming a huge amount to
meet the deficit imposed by the
recent state legislative decision to
force roll-back tax rates.
At the end of last week's regular
commission meeting, Commis-
sioner Minor Bryant thanked Paul
Samuels for the oar presented to
them at the Peace River Watershed
Awareness Week held at Payne
Creek Park in late April. "If the
constitutional amendment passes in
January, we may need this paddle,"
he commented wryly.
During next week's budget ses-
sions, commissioners have to cope
with the state-mandated limit on
how counties and city can levy


taxes this year. They have to take at
the 2006-07 ad valorem tax level
and cut three percent from it. In
effect, this will cut millage from the
current 9.0 mills to about 7.8 mills.
Bryant said the commission
"would have to look at everyone's
part of the budget. The governor
said there would be no curt in law
enforcement or Fire-Rescue but
that may have to happen along with
everyone else."
Other commissioners agreed,
expressing more concern for the
2008-09 budget with a proposed
referendum on the Jan. 29
Presidential Preference Primary
ballot. If approved by 60 percent of
voters, it would change how home-
stead exemptions are determined.
Residents would have a choice of a
75 percent homestead exemption of
at least $50,000 or staying with the
Save Our Homes provision which
limits homestead tax valuation
increases to three percent per year.
Studies show the super exemp-
tion would only provide homestead
tax relief for three to five years,
after which people would again be
awash in high tax bills.
It may be a moot question as

Sheriff Seeks
$1 Million More
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Dispatch, bailiffs, patrol, cross-
ing guards and jailors-takes a lot-of
employees and benefits.
And, the cost of fuel, insurance,
inmate clothing and food and other
supplies just increases the 2007-08
budget of Hardee County Sheriff J.
Loran Cogburn.
Always the first to submit his
tentative budget for the next fiscal
year, Cogburn upped his 2006-07
budget of $7,087,291.98 to
$8,248,643.48 for 2007-08.
He submitted his proposed bud-"
get on May 14, well before the state
legislative session in mid-June
which resulted in a minimum three-
percent cut of county budgets. His;
will be the -first considered when
annual budget workshops begin on
Monday morning.
When approving the bill mandat-
ing local government spending
cuts, Gov. Charlie Crist said police
and emergency services would not
be cut.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Fannie Spivey worked for a bank in Fort Meade for 2 years and then
for Wauchula State Bank for 48 years.
She is a widow and still lives in Hardee County. She picks up leftover
newspapers at The Herald-Advocate and takes them to her granddaughter's
school in Polk County Auburndale High School.
The band there has a newspaper collection bin which is emptied regu-
larly, with the Bloodhound Band program getting a penny a pound.
In four years the AHS Band has earned about $4,000 for this newspa-
per recycling endeavor.
Fannie is proud to help the band program earn some money as well as
keeping old newspapers from going to a landfill to be buried.
She would like to see the Hardee County school system look into get-
ting a newspaper recycling bin.

Former Hardee Junior High School Principal Elmo Roberts will be 82
next month. He is retired and still lives in the Lemon Grove community
near Charlie Creek east of Wauchula.
His brother Martin used to have a grocery store in Wauchula. Elmo
remembers how county farmers would come to town on Saturday after-
noons and spend time visiting and eating hamburgers and hot dogs before
buying their groceries and going home that night.
It was hard to find a parking place on Main Street in Wauchula and one
block on either side of Main Street.
Elmo remembers that hot dogs cost a nickel, soft drinks a nickel and
hamburgers 10 cents.
For lunch some days Elmo would get a dime from his parents and eat
a Moon Pie and a soft drink, sometimes an RC Cola.
Elmo said while being principal his teachers at the junior high were
very good and taught children a lot more than just the subject matter -
such as values and lessons to lead a successful life.
He said he does not know enough facts to comment on today's educa-
tional system in Florida, which places a lot of emphasis. on the FCAT.

there is a challenge before the state
Supreme Court to remove the refer-
endum from the. January ballot
because "its wording is vague and
misleading."
Meanwhile, counties are still
required to make cuts in next year's
budgets. "We will do the best we
can for this three percent cut on this
budget, but if that constitutional
amendment passes, we'll be in a
bad way, at least 20 percent cut,"
said Commissioner Nick
Timmerman.
Chairman Bobby Ray Smith
commented, "I'm scared to death
about sitting down to do this. Until
we get down to work, we won't
know what cuts we'll have to make.
I'm 'disappointed the legislature
painted us all with the same brush.
Hardee County hasn't been spend-
ing irresponsibility, but we're still
going to be affected.
"It will be interesting to see how
many sheriffs in the 67 counties
appeal their budget cuts; I'm dread-
ing next week," concluded Smith.

Commissioner Dale Johnson
took a more optimistic approach. "I
feel it won't be that bad, it's doable
this year. But if that super home-
stead exemption passes, it will be
bad.
"I've asked people what happens
if the sheriff or ambulance services
are cut and they say 'so be it,' but
when I ask if it's their child's life, I
get a different answer. I hope we
don't get hit with that extra home-
stead exemption."
Commissioner Gordon Norris
offered his opinion, I think it will
be one of the toughest sessions any
of us has faced as commissioner.
It's new territory for us. We don't
have the infrastructure the coastal
counties do.
"And, there will be a trickle-
down effect, state cuts affecting
monies available to us. Hopefully,
we can continue services our citi-
zens need and want. We'll give it
our best shot. We'll probably work
through this one, but come January
it will be different. It will be an
educational process between now
and then."
County Manager Lex Albritton
explained that the cuts would
amount to a total of $400,000 in the
97 percent of the 06-07 amounts.
"It will be a transition year. We
don't know how to figure for next
year. If the referendum fails in
January, it will be on the ballot in
November 2008. But the legislators
have capped the roll-back rate to
the increase in average personal
income plus new construction. That
means about four percent per year,"
Albritton said.
He estimated about 10 positions
would be lost. "There will be no
layoffs this year, but every time a
vacancy comes up, we will have to
look at whether we can afford to
replace it. We have no reserves in
this year's budget."
Three days next week may affect
county residents and what services
they may lose by budget trimming.

The boy himself also could not

The boy was taken into the emer-

shot wound was revealed. The bul-
let had struck the boy in the left leg,
at the outside of his upper thigh,
Eason said. It traveled in a down-
ward direction, and exited from the
inner side of his lower left thigh.
The bullet continued its down-
ward trajectory, however, and
passed into the inside of the boy's
right ankle.
Eason said as the boy was being
treated, he left the emergency room
and returned to the lobby. There, he
again asked the father where the

In the cover letter with his pro-
posed budget, Cogburn said a plan
to transfer Fire-Rescue dispatch has
not happened. Thus, he needs five
more dispatchers.
Four additional patrol deputies
were approved in this year's budget
but two have had to be assigned to
the courts because of increased
court duties and the docket loads of
Circuit Judge Marcus Ezelle and
County Judge Jeff McKibben.
So, Cogburn is asking to add two
more patrol deputies. He will defer
a request for two more investiga-
tors.
His 2007-08 budget funds 111
positions in administration, court-
house security, dispatch, computer,
crossing guards at the new K- 8


school in Wauchula Hills, bailiffs
and process servers, corrections,
medical personnel at the jail, inves-
tigations and patrol.
Added to their salaries are health,
retirement, liability, worker's com-
pensation and other benefits, uni-
forms, pest control, prisoner bed-
ding and clothing, training, books
and printing supplies, fuel for cook-
ing and vehicles, K-9 supplies and
replacement vehicles to adequately
cover the 600-plus square miles of
Hardee County.
The Sheriff's budget is funded
from General Revenue, fees and
rental of jail beds for prisoners of
overcrowded federal, state and
county facilities.


Bohanan, who went to the resi-
dence, found blood on the bedroom
floor, but saw that the gun was no
longer on the floor where Leyva
said he had dropped it.
One brother of the victim was in
the hospital lobby and Eason asked
him about the gun, then radioed
back to Bohanan that the brother
said the gun had been thrown into a
nearby orange grove. But again
Bohanan's search revealed nothing.
Instead, Bohanan heard from
someone at the residence that
another of the boy's brothers had
taken the gun. Bohanan radioed
that information to Eason, who
found that brother standing outside
the hospital. That brother said he
did, indeed, take the gun and that
he put it inside a car at the home to
secure it so that no one else would
get hurt.
Bohanan found it there.
Eason said the shooting occurred
at about 1:55 p.m. The 17-year-old
was transferred to Tampa- that
evening, he said. His injuries were
described as minor.
Eason alleged near the close of
his report that the bedroom showed
signs of "Southside 13" gang activ-
ity, which also were documented by
police.


Bowling Green BP Store


Criticized By Commissioners


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Bowling Green City
Commission received a report
Tuesday night that bongs and pipes
were being sold at the Stop 'N
Shop BP store in Bowling Green.
Those items were in a glass case by
the cash register and labeled "for
tobacco use only."
However, resident Lamont Lee
said the items are not really
designed for tobacco but are most
often used for illegal drugs such as
crack cocaine and marijuana.
He and John Lee said they
noticed the case of pipes and bongs
appeared in the store Tuesday to
their knowledge.
"If you get caught with one of
those items in your car, that can be
grounds for a search. The sign 'for
tobacco use. only', is a, lie," said
SLamont Lee.
Mayor Perry Knight was upset
over the report. "I am distressed
they would have that in their store.
It is not right."
The commission passed a motion
for a letter of complaint to be
signed by the mayor be sent to the
BP corporation, which has gasoline
and diesel fuel sales at the store,
located at the north end of Bowling
Green.
Lee said a convenience store in
Wauchula by the county schools'
bus garage "stopped selling the
stuff after a complaint. They
recently stopped selling that stuff in
convenience stores in St.
Petersburg," said Lee.
-Commissioner David Durastanti
said, "I knew BP now stand for
Beyond Petroleum. I did not know
this is what they had in mind."
City attorney Gerald Buhr said to
the commissioners, "I guess BP
might stand for bong pipes."
After the meeting Mayor Knight
and commissioners Randy Mink
and Richard Barone, Lamont Lee
and Herald-Advocate publisher Jim
Kelly went to the Stop 'N Shop BP
convenience store and looked at the
case of bongs and pipes. They.
ranged in price up to $24.99, and
there were four or five shelves of
the items. There were several small
sheets of paper with the handwrit-
ten note, "for tobacco use only."
"Even 12 and 13-year-old kids
can see these items," said Lee,
Lee and Mayor Knight felt the
bongs and. pipes promoted and
encouraged illegal drug use; which
city officials strongly discourage.
In other action, building contrac-
tor Bill Reschke requested a zoning

Man Accused Of


Lewd Act In Store


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 36-year-old Wauchula man has
been charged with committing a
lewd act inside a discount store in
front.of a woman and her children.
Willie Lee Grey, of 618 Sally
PI., has been charged with the sec-
ond-degree felony of exhibiting
lewd behavior. Sheriffs authorities
say he performed an indecent act
on himself while in the Family
Dollar Store at 1024 U.S. 17 S.
He is expected to appear in
Hardee Circuit Court this coming
Tuesday. At his June 26 arraign-
ment, Grey pleaded not guilty, and
the Public Defender's Office was
appointed to represent him.
Further, Grey posted a $5,000
bond on June 30, and was released
from the custody of the Hardee
County Jail as he awaits trial.
According to Sheriffs Office
spokesman Maj. Claude Harris Jr.,
a deputy was called to the Family
Dollar Store at about I in the after-
noon on June 6.
A woman there complained that
a man had exposed himself inside
the store and was performing a
lewd act. She said he did so in front
of her and her children. She


Grey
described the man, and said he was
wearing a white T-shirt and orange
shorts.
Dep. Eric Thompson found a
man fitting that description, Grey,
and took him back to the store,
Harris said. There, the woman
identified Grey as the man she had
seen committing the lewd act.
Grey, Harris said, admitted to the
act, but said no one saw him.
He also told authorities he is on
medication for this problem, but
said that he had not taken it lately,
the major added.
Tuesday's court date will be for a
pre-trial hearing in front of Circuit
Judge Marcus J. Ezelle.


Citrus Growers May Be Eligible

For Expanded Electricity Exemption


Florida citrus growers could ben-
efit from a recent expansion of the
sales tax exemption on electricity
used to operate a farm.
The new exemption, which took
effect July 1, means all electricity
used in the processing or produc-
tion of agricultural, products on a
farm is exempt from sales tax. This
includes electricity used in offices,
storage buildings and maintenance
shops.
The previous law's ambiguous
language made it unclear, whether
certain uses were exempt. The revi-
sion could eliminate the need to
install additional meters to segre-
gate eligible and non-eligible elec-
trical power used on the farm.
However, the new law does not
exempt the sales tax on electricity
used in homes or residences even if
they are located on the. farm.
Growers should evaluate their on-
farm electric usage to determine if
they benefit from the expanded
exemption.
If a grower benefits, he should.
contact his electric company and
provide them with an exemption
certificate. For more information-
on the exemption call Rusty
Wiygul at (863) 682-1111.


Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland, is
the state's largest citrus growers
organization with nearly 10,000
members. Visit www.flcitrusmutu-

Wauchula Can't Close


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The I -.ld-Advocate
After lengthy discussion, no
decision was the best answer Wau-
chula City Commissioners could
come up with.
It started as a request at Monday
night's meeting to close an "alley-
way" a half block north of
Louisiana Street, running between
10th and Eighth avenues, with a
dogleg toward Seventh.
It turned out that the "alleyway"
was actually not city property at all.
The city had never used it or main-
tained it.
It's a hiatus between two platted
subdivision," explained City
Attorney Cliff Ables. "When each
was platted, they didn't quite meet
and the space, 10 feet or so, has
been used as an alleyway or back

entrance to some of the properties
along it," he added.
Some property owners describe it
as a security and trash hazard and a
nuisance. At least one owner said
he keep up his portion of it,
although others denied that.
When it was all over, Ables said
it would take extensive research to
find out who originally owned the
extra property so quit claims could
be obtained and the strip divided
between homeowners. Since the
city has no vested interest, it does
not plan to do the research.

In other action, the commission:
Accepted the resignation of
Carl Saunders from the Airport
Authority Board. He has served for
20 years, 18 as its chairman.
During his tenure $2.1 million in
state and federal funds help build
the airport.
Since then, 20 T-hangars have
been constructed and 10 more are
in the works as well as the possibil-
ity of Harvest Aviation as an anchor
tenant. "It's now a $5 to $7 million
plant," said Saunders.
Approved final reading of an
ordinance to allow an additional
$5,000 homestead exemption to
city residents 65 and older who
have less than $20,000 annual
income.
Approved three ordinances
concerning 2.61 acres on the north-
east corner at Stenstrom Road and
Florida Avenue, annexing it into the
city, changing it from county zon-
ing R-3 (multiple family housing)


'Alleyway"
to city R-2 (single-family/duplex).
Approved an ordinance
amending the city's pension plan to
allow a one-time 10 percent pay:
ment to retirees to make up for
cost-of-living adjustments over-
looked in recent years.
Approved first reading of an
ordinance adopting the Floridi
Building Code and Hardee County
Construction Industry Licensing
Ordinance for code enforcement,
permitting and inspection, and
unsafe or dilapidated building
inspection services.
Approved first reading of an
ordinance to require customers to
pay for extension of city electric

A passenger in this sport utility vehicle was injured on Friday, June 29, when the driver rear-ended a tractor-trailer stopped on U.S.
17 at SR 64, Zolfo Springs Police Chief Chris Baty said. According to his report, the crash occurred at about 2 p.m. as Melissa
Kimberly, 24, of Christmas, was driving her 1996 Jeep north on U.S. 17, with five passengers inside. A Mack truck driven by Jerry
Howard Rimes, 58, of Zolfo Springs, was ahead of her in her lane, and was stopped at the highway's intersection with SR 64.
Kimberly approached the intersection, but failed to stop, Baty said. Her Jeep hit the rear of the trailer the Mack truck was pulling,
he said. A passenger in the front seat, Damon Robertson, 23, was not wearing a seat belt and was injured when his head struck
the Jeep's windshield, Baty added. Kimberly was charged with careless driving.


Nutrition Notes


SALMON AND
CRANBERRIES
After the rich foods of
Thanksgiving, a nice piece of fish
Sounds very appealing. And you can
use up the last of the cranberry
sauce at the same time, for a quick,
easy, delicious dinner.
The slight tartness of cranberry
sauce nicely complements the rich
flavor of fatty fish such as salmon.
Salmon is a particularly good
source of omega-3 fat, a polyunsat-
urated fat with two major benefits
it doesn't raise blood choles-
terol, and it seems to have health-
promoting powers that lower the
risk of heart disease and possibly
cancer. Only certain fish are a good
source of omega-3 fats: salmon,
mackerel, herring;'white (afbacore)
;tuna and sardines.- ,
Salmon also are high in protein
,.:and rich in vitamin A and the B vit-
'amins.
When buying salmon, there is
often a choice between farm-raised
and wild, as well as between Pacific
:and Atlantic varieties. Atlantic
salmon is always farm-raised. It is
:also mostly grain-fed, which pro-
:duces a fish that is moister and fat-
tier than Pacific salmon. Atlantic
salmon is farmed in Chile, Western
Canada and Washington State, as

well as in the waters of the Atlantic
Ocean. Most Pacific salmon is from
Alaska and available in a number of
varieties.
Cranberries are abundant this
time of year, so even if you don't
have any leftover cranberry sauce,
it won't be difficult to make some.
Fresh cranberries are usually sold
in 12-ounce bags, which makes
about three cups when chopped.
Select bags with cranberries that
look plump and unblemished. You
can refrigerate bagged cranberries,
tightly wrapped, for two months, or
freeze them, unopened, for up to
nine months. (If a recipe calls for
frozen cranberries, thaw the fruit
just before using, to retain crispi-
ness.) Before cooking, rinse cran-
berries in cold water and remove
stems and any bruised fruit.
Studies show that eating a variety
of colorful fruits and vegetables
every day is key to better health.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS
If you hated Brussels sprouts
when you were young because they
tasted strong and bitter, it is defi-
nitely time to try them again.
Today's Brussels sprouts are sweet-
er and milder-tasting than you may

recall, especially if you have avoid-
ed them since childhood.
Originally, Brussels sprouts were
strictly a home garden vegetable,
where they made for a striking
sight: miniature cabbages rising in
spiraling rows around a rigid, waist-
high stalk. Here and there, cabbage-
like leaves flutter out from the stalk
to shelter the individual sprouts
from sun and rain as they mature.
Today, you can buy these stalks at
farmers' markets. When you get one
home, take your pick. You can cut
off the mature sprouts that cluster
around the bottom of the stalk, or
pick off the finger nail-size babies
near the top, which are tender
enough to toss into a salad.
Around 1900, when commercial
farmers first started cultivating the
Brussels sprouts most of us know,
they sought out varieties that would
be less time-consuming and labor-
intensive to harvest. By the 1960s,
they succeeded ,,growing only those
varieties that were easiest to pick:
Unfortunately, they tasted so bitter
that people were turned off.
Recently, as interest in eating and
enjoying vegetables has increased,
growers have finally responded by
cultivating Brussels sprout varieties
that meet their needs while tasting
far better, too.
At the store, look for loose
Brussels sprouts. Pick out sprouts
around the same size, as small as
you can find. Buy only as much as
you plan to cook within a few days,
because their bitterness increases as
they age. My favorite method is
braising them, which means briefly
sauteing the sprouts in a pan which
holds them in one layer, using just
enough oil to coat them, adding liq-
uid, and gently simmering them
until tender-crisp. I always use
broth instead of water because it
adds flavor. On special occasions, I
take time to halve or quarter the
sprouts lengthwise so the broth pen-
etrates their layers, and I cook them
uncovered so the flavor concen-
trates as the broth evaporates.
Cooking Brussels sprouts uncov-
ered also reduces the "cabbage" fla-
vor, though it takes longer and
requires more liquid.


THE MOST VERSATILE
VEGETABLE?
Butternut squash is one of the
handiest and healthiest vegetables
you can serve. It might win the veg-
etable versatility award, as you can
bake or roast it, steam or boil it, use
it in stews or a stir-fry. Butternut
squash is good in soups, main dish-
es, as a. side dish, and even for
dessert, where it can take the place
of pumpkin or sweet potato as a pie
filling.
The slightly sweet, nutty flavor
of butternut squash is enhanced by a
wide range of seasonings. In
America we tend to stick to cinna-
mon and nutmeg, but butternut
squash also turns up in highly
spiced North African stews, chile

pepper-spiked Latin dishes and in
incendiary Thai curries. It is even
delicious seasoned with
Mediterranean herbs such as thyme
and oregano. The texture of butter-
nut squash is flexible enough to be
served in hearty chunks, or finely
chopped and mixed into risotto, or
whirled into a creamy puree that is
delicious presented as a soup or a
side dish.
Nutritionally, butternut squash
has more vitamin C and beta-
carotene than any other winter
squash. It is also easier to use than
its harder shelled cousins like acorn
and spaghetti squash. In fact, you
can simply boil or steam the squash,
then slip the skin off using a knife
run just under the surface. The
seeds scoop out just as easily. If you
want to cut down on prep time even
more, you can buy butternut squash
already cut up and ready to cook.
Some foods immediately call to
mind an ideal partner, like rice and
beans, peanut butter andijelly, or
tomatoes and basil. For butternut
squash, though, the list of happy
pairings is almost endless. In win-
ter, I particularly like combining it
with apples, chestnuts, and almost
any bean, from green snap beans to
dried Tuscan white or canned, vel-
vety pintos.
Unlike other winter squashes,
butternut is generally available
year-round. Since bigger squashes
tend to be sweeter, buy a nice hefty
one.


JOE GARAGIOLA: GREAT HUMOR & DEEP FAITH
High on the list of people I've long wanted to meet is Joe Garagiola;
former Major League Baseball player, broadcaster extraordinaire and mem-
ber of the Broadcasters Wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame. For many years
I've admired his talent for telling hilarious-stories that come from his long
association with baseball as well as for his deep commitment to his
Catholic faith.
I finally got to meet Joe recently when he was a guest on our
"Christopher Closeup" show. What a joy and privilege it was not only to
spend a couple of hours with him, but to also find that, in person, he is as
genuine and funny as he comes across on television and in his books.
He's easy to visit with, quick with stories, and very comfortable talking
about his faith journey and his love for Mary, the Blessed Mother.
For those of you who are too young to remember (and more and more
people are!), Joe Garagiola began his baseball career with the St. Louis
Cardinals, his hometown team. He was signed right out of high school and

received a bonus of $500, which he immediately gave to his father so the
senior Garagiola could pay off the mortgage on their home. Joe told me,
"When I gave him the money, it was the only time I ever saw him cry."
Joe grew up across the street from another baseball legend, Yogi Berra.
"I can't remember not knowing Yogi!" That's Joe's answer to how far back
they go. His "Yogi stories" have become his stock-in-trade during a very
successful career on the speaking circuit as well as his decades of work as
a baseball color commentator on the Major League Game of the Week and
now with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
If you don't know about Yogi Berra's fame for quotes that make you
go "Huh?" then you've missed some great entertainment. For example, Joe
tells how Yogi's wife, Carmen, asked her husband (who is now 82 years
old) if he wanted to be buried in St. Louis, where he grew up; New York,
where he gained fame and fans as a player and manager; or New Jersey,
where he raised his family and now lives.
Yogi told her, "I don't know. Surprise me!" As Joe says, you can't
make this stuff up, and "Yogi doesn't. He just talks and they come out."
The role of his Catholic faith in Joe's life is central to the way he lives.
Prayer starts his day. Each morning he asks God to help him see the ways
he can be God's hands to people he meets. "I don't go through a lot of for-
mal prayers. I just talk to God like you and I are talking now."
When I asked where his devotion to the Blessed Mother started, Joe
said that he heard Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen say on television one evening
that in a family, if you want to ask your parents for something you go first
to your mother. Joe said that after he met Archbishop Sheen and they had
become good friends, he told him how much that advice meant.
Archbishop Sheen said that he was simply passing on what the Gospel
story about the wedding feast at Cana told us. The servants told Mary that
they had run out of wine, she told Jesus and then told the servants to do as
Jesus instructed. She knew He'd listen to her request and, Archbishop
Sheen told Joe, that's the lesson for us talk to Mary first.
Joe Garagiola uses his God-given talent to make people laugh and, in
the process, helps make this a better world. Thanks, Joe!

Only One Men's Team Unbeaten


By JOAN SEAMAN

When the third week ended, only
one squad was undefeated.

Force.
The Mosaic Regulators have the
least of leads in Division I. Its 5-1

quite close. Behind them are Big T,

Creativity is allowing yourself
to make mistakes. Art is know-

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

OVERCOMING SIN
Some of the most shattering chapters of the Bible tell of adultery and
murder committed by King David at the climax of a life of heroic devotion
to God.
Can this be the same person who killed a giant in righteous anger? Is
this the man who "would not touch the Lord's anointed" when he had a
chance to kill the one pursuing him'? Is this the same man who danced pub-
licly in a passion of devotion for God'?
What is the lesson for us'? Never get complacent about sin! As long as
we are in the flesh and physically alive, we have an enemy, a very patient
enemy, who will destroy us if he can even if we have lived a lifetime of
obedient service!
Perhaps you have determined to live a holy life for God in this corrupt
world. But how are you going to do it? I suggest that you dare to love the
Lord passionately.
A passionate lover of Jesus is not always a comfortable person to be
around. He is narrow-minded. All the interests of his life have been sharply
focused on one thing: pleasing and serving the One who has rescued him
from death and Hell.
He is an enthusiastic man, unbalanced by the standards of an unbeliev-
ing world. The world counts any sacrifice for Jesus a terrible waste of time,
money and talent. This is because the world does not value Jesus or believe
in the task He came to Earth to accomplish.
The passionate man, however, sees nothing else. He is bowled over by
Calvary. He is stunned by such mercy. He can't get over the fact that he can
enjoy, every day, the companionship of the King of Kings.
Responding to such love is the best defense against sin!

Fundraiser Benefits


Transplant Recipient


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A July Fourth fundraiser was
held in Wauchula to benefit a man
who recently received a kidney
transplant.
The car show and barbecue at
Belflower's Floors Direct on U.S.
17 drew more than 30 antique, col-
lectible and performance cars and
over 300 attendees in an effort to
help defray the medical expenses of
Scott Lang.
Lang underwent a kidney trans-
plant at Tampa General Hospital on
June 14. Both he and the donor, sis-
ter-in-law Tracy Lang, are doing


well.
The surgery was performed
using a new less-invasive technique
that speeds recovery time and min-
imizes the scar. Scott Lang re-
mained hospitalized for a week.
Three months is the critical mark
for rejection. Meanwhile, Lang is
recovering ahead of schedule but is
not yet permitted back to work.
Tracy Lang is doing well, and has
returned to her normal routine,
including work.
"I have to travel back and forth to
Tampa for testing twice a week for
the next three months, and I will be
on anti-rejection drugs for the rest


of my life," Lang noted. "But," he
added, "I feel better than I have in a
long time."
Well enough to be a part of the
holiday event. "I was told to stay
away from crowds of people," he
admitted, "but I had to be here. I've
just been careful not to get too
close."
The event included the car show,
a barbecue, a silent auction for a
generator, and door prizes.
By mid-September Lang will
know if the kidney he received
from his sister-in-law will be his
permanent cure.


History: Wauchula


On July 4 Of 1910


Bob Belflower (right) draws tickets for door prizes.


Edited by Spessard Stone from The
Courier-Informant of Bartow dated
July 7, 1910:
The Fourth In Wauchula
The enterprising and prosperous
little city of Wauchula celebrated
last Monday in a manner to make it
in reality, as well as in name, a
'.'Glorious Fourth."
The streets were overrun from an
early hour in the forenoon until
night by a crowd of visitors and cit-
izens which could not have num-
bered less than 2,000. Not an
unpleasant incident occurred, so far,
as we were able to learn, and the
day was a perfect success in its
every feature.
At 10 o'clock a.m., the large
crowd assembled at the speakers'
stand that had been erected for the
occasion, and after some fine music
by the Wauchula Cornet Band,
Mayor A. Yancey Teachy wel-
,comed the large audience in brief
but eloquent.and appropriate terms.
He then introduced Gen. E.M.
Law of Bartow, who occupied
about 45 minutes in a historical and


political sketch of events from the
4th of July 1776, when the
Declaration of Independence was
made, until the present time.
Gen. Law was followed by Mr.
Doyle E. Carlton, a recent graduate
of Stetson University, in a most
excellent address of 25 minutes on
"The Moral and Legislative Phases
of Prohibition."
A five-minute speech on
Prohibition by Frank Wideman.
also a graduate of Stetson
University, came next in order, and
this was followed by a brief but
interesting talk by Rev. Sankey F.
Stephens, representing Southern
College, of which he still is a stu-
dent.
The speeches were interspersed
with music by the band and songs
by the Stetson Quartet, some of the
latter being exceedingly humorous
and catchy.
In all, the exercises at the stand
consumed less than two hours, and
no one was too tired to do justice to
the splendid barbecue dinner which
followed.
The afternoon was spent in sports

Clues Can Tell Time To Many Americans Develop

Consider Assisted Living Cataract On Eye Lens


When is the right time to suggest
parents or loved ones can no longer
live safely on their own?
Sometimes, the decision is forced
by illness, an accident or other cir-
cumstances related to aging.
For other elders, changes are
subtle. In a special report on assist-
ed living, the July issue of Mayo
Clinic Women's HealthSource lists
warning signs to help gauge when
seniors need assistance in the home
or alternative living arrangements.
These signs may also indicate that a
call or visit to a primary care doc-
tors is in order.

without trying is a signal that some-
thing is wrong. It can indicate a sig-
nificant health problem, such as
cancer, dementia, depression or
heart failure. Weight loss can also
be related to difficulty finding the
energy to cook or problems with
grasping cooking tools. changes in
the ability to taste and smell can
make food less appealing.
Poor home maintenance. Piled
up dirty dishes or clutter, over-
grown grass or any big negative
changes in home upkeep are clues
that seniors may be having health
problems or age-related changes
that hinder them from keeping up
with household chores.
Lack of personal hygiene.
Failure to keep up with daily rou-
tines teeth brushing, bathing and
basic grooming can be signs of
trouble.
Mood changes. Everyone has
good and bad days, but a different
mood or outlook on life could be a
sign of depression or another health
concern. Losing interest in hobbies
or daily activities is not a natural
sign of aging.
Memory loss. Forgetfulness
tends to increase with age, but
there's a big difference between
normal absentmindedness and the
type of memory loss associated
with conditions such as Alzheim-
er's disease or other forms of
dementia. Early warning signs can
include repeatedly asking the same
questions; having difficulty finding
words; using inappropriate words;
and being unable to complete
familiar tasks.
Mobility problems. Muscle
weakness, joint problems and other
age-related changes can make it
difficult to move around and per-
form basic tasks or chores.
Unsteadiness increases the risk of
falling. And falls can cause major
injuries and even death inn older
adults.
It can be difficult for all involved
to determine that independent liv-
ing is no longer safe or practical.
Sometimes, a family member's
expression of concern can be the
impetus needed for the elder to
realize it's time to see a care
provider or consider other living
arrangements.

There is only one quality worse
than hardness of heart and that
is softness of head.


Here's an eye-opening statistic
from the July issue of Mayo Clinic
Women's HealthSource: By age 80,
more than half of all Americans
either have a cataract or have had
cataract surgery.
A cataract occurs when the nor-
mally clear lens in the eye becomes
cloudy, blurring vision and prevent-
ing the lens from focusing an image
on the retina, the light-sensitive tis-
sue at the back of the eye. While
cataracts don't spread from one eye
to another, both eyes are commonly
affected.
The only effective treatment for a
cataract is surgery to remove the
clouded lens. Typically, it's
replaced with an artificial lens
known as an introcular lens. Made
from clear plastic, acrylic or sili-
cone, introcular lenses become a
permanent part of the eye.
Cataract surgery is one of the
safest and most effective surgical
procedures performed in the United


States. In years past, it was often
recommended that patients wait for
a cataract to turn white before hav-
ing it removed. Today, there are no
set recommendation,: .;i the the
best time to remove a cataract. The
standard is to have one cataract
removed at a time, allowing the eye
to heal prior to the second surgery.
Most cataracts don't disturb
vision in the early stages, but as the
clouding progresses, a cataract can
interfere with everyday life. After
successful surgery, patients notice a
vision improvement within days.
Complete healing generally takes
four to six weeks.
Regular eye exams remain the
best way to detect cataracts early
and monitor their progression.
Adults of any age can develop a
cataract, but age is the single great-
est risk factor. For people over 65,
an eye exam at least every other
year is recommended.

and there's no recommended rou-
tine screening for it.
Recent studies have raised ques-
tions about whether computerized
tomography (CT) scans could ben-
efit those at high risk for develop-
ing lung cancer. A CT scan is an X-
ray technique that uses a computer
to provide detailed images of inter-
nal organs.
Current smokers have the highest
risk of lung cancer. Smoking caus-
es about nine out of 10 lung can-
cers.
In an interview in the July issue
of Mayo Clinic Women's Health-
Source, David Midthun, M.D., a
Mayo Clinic physician, says it's
important to be wary of claims that
CT scans improve survival for lung
cancer patients.
"Screening will increase survival
statistics just by moving up the date
of lung cancer diagnosis and
detecting more cancers," says Dr.
Midthun, a researcher with a spe-
cial interest in lung cancer screen-
ings. "But screening may not lead


to people living longer than they
would have without screening or
reduce their chance of dying of the
disease."
In one recent study, investigators
showed that CT lung scans detected
three times as many cancers as
expected, but also resulted in 10
times as many surgeries as expect-
ed, and did not reduce the number
of people with advanced cancers or
reduce the likelihood of deaths
from lung cancer.
Several randomized controlled
trials on CT screening for lung can-
cers are under way. Answers may
be a few years away. For now, says
Dr. Midthun, it's not known if CT
screening for lung cancer is inef-
fective. "This scanning just hasn't
been proven to reduce the likeli-
hood of dying of lung cancer," he
says.
No doubt Jack the Ripper
excused himself on the grounds
that it was human nature.


MAKING THE FRONT PAGE
When I came back from vet school to practice at Matthew's Aniinal'
Hospital in Arcadia in the late 1960s, I was involved with the rodeo and
assumed a variety of responsibilities. Several years later I became president
of the Arcadia Rodeo Association, but one of my first chores as a new direc-
tor was at the Saddle Club rounding up a Shetland pony that was to be given
away in a raffle at the rodeo the following day.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about all the damage to my vehicles as
a practicing veterinarian, but this pony chase was the first time I managed
to total a car. I was driving my wife's brand new 1974 Oldsmobile Vista
Cruiser, and we were trying to run the pony out of the pasture and trap him
in the arena.
It was in the days when they had just put all the catalytic converters on
cars which was designed to treat the exhaust before it leaves the car to
remove a lot of the pollution. However it caused cars to run hot, and when
my wife's car got too hot it stalled and caught fire to the grass underneath.
That beautiful new Oldsmobile burned up completely.
Somebody had apparently noticed the smoke and flames and called the
fire department. They came with sirens blaring, but the only thing they
could do was just stand back and watch it finish burning.
When it was all said and done, the only thing on the car that wasn't
destroyed was a "Drawtite R" graphite trailer hitch that was bolted to the
back of the frame and, I remember specifically that the chrome rear view
mirrors were just puddles on the ground beside what was left of the car.
Frankly it would take years and more poor decisions before I learned
not to gather horses or cows with my vehicle.
I caught a ride in one of the fire trucks, and they took me by my house
and dropped me off. When I got there my wife was on a float in the swim-
ming pool and I told her, "you know that siren you heard, it was your car
burning up." Her reply was, "Somehow I knew that had something to do
with you," and she paddled off to the other end of the pool.
This story made the front page of both The Arcadian and the Hardee
Herald-Advocate. The Arcadian just described the burning car and pony
event in colorful language, but Jim Kelly wrote the article of his life. He not
only wrote about the pony and the car burning but described, in detail, the
time when we were kids and lived on Pecan Avenue. I had decided to stand
up on the seat of a bicycle one day, just to show them I could, while it was
rolling down the road. I did pretty well, but the problem came when I tried
to get down and ended up with the ultimate case of road rash.
I wrote Jim a letter and told him about how ironic it was that a man can'
graduate with two degrees from two different universities and accomplish
all kinds of positive things in his life, but the only time he makes the front
page was in stories about two absolute fiascoes in his life. Once was when
he was a 12-year-old child and the other when he was a 30-year-old man
not quite grown up.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered rains during the week of July 2 8 raised soil moisture
ings in most areas. Rainfall amounts ranged from a quarter inch or less
Alachua, Bronson, Live Oak, and Monticello, to over five inches in Broo
ville, Daytona Beach, and Sebring. Most stations reported an inch or m
of rain for the week. Temperatures at most of the major stations were n
mal. Daytime highs were in the 80s and 90s while nighttime lows wer
the 60s and 70s. The Florida Department of Agriculture's Division
Forestry reported a total of 95 active wildfires on 98,912 acres as of Jul
2007.

FIELD CROPS
Recent rainfall helped cotton, peanut, and hay growth in m
Panhandle and northern Peninsula areas. In Jackson County, rain for
week ranged from two tenths to over three inches with 25 to 30 percent
the field crop area still under severe drought conditions. The rain
increased peanut condition with ratings improving to 5 percent very p(
20 percent poor, 35 percent fair, 20 percent good and 20 percent excell
The recent rains greened hay fields but more rain is needed to ensure a
quate growth. Dry conditions caused a substantial nut drop from pecan tr
in Jefferson County. In Washington County, most field crop produce
applied fertilizer to stimulate production and fight weed problems since
bicides were less effective on drought-stressed plants. The recent r
improved soil moisture with most ratings adequate. In Dade County,
week's significant rainfall led to minor flooding and standing water in ma
locations. In Hendry County, nearly daily rains raised water levels in po
and canals. Marion and Hernando counties reported surplus soil moist
supplies. The scattered nature of the recent rain left some skipped ar<
especially in the Panhandle and Big Bend area, with soil moisture rated v
short to short.

VEGETABLES


In Jefferson County, the watermelon harvest neared the end with sc
poor yields realized by growers. Tomato picking is nearly finished in
Quincy area. Okra harvesting continued in Dade County.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition was very poor to good with most in
condition. Pastures were extremely short but responding to the rain. N.
producers applied fertilizer to pasture to get more forage growth. W
problems were severe in pastures as herbicides are not working well
drought-stressed plants. Hay and cattle feed was in short supply. Some
tle have been sold due to lack of forage and expensive hay. In the norti
and central areas, pasture condition was poor to fair with most in fair c
edition. Pastures have greened greatly and have significant growth. In
southwest area, pasture condition was very poor to good with most in g
condition. In Desoto County, daily rain improved pasture condition
Hendry County, rainfall began to raise water levels in stock ponds. Pas
condition improved rapidly. In Okeechobee, pastures started to green up
grow. Many producers sold calves early to reduce the cows need for for
Statewide, cattle condition ranged from very poor to good with most in
condition.

Thunderstorms and heavy showers developed early in the week, allevi-
ating much of the dry surface conditions present across the citrus producing
region. One to three inches of rain fell in a few hours in several areas on
Tuesday and lighter rains continued for the next couple of days. Sebring had
the most rainfall for the week at over five inches, followed by Ft. Pierce at
over three and a half inches. Lakes, ponds, and general water reservoirs are
beginning to refill following a dry spring and early summer season. High
temperatures reached into the 90s in all areas with the highest recording in
Lake Alfred at 95 degrees. Cultural practices include fertilizing, applica-
tions of summer oils, copper spraying, hedging, and resetting of young
trees. The trees are making good progress with some new growth due to the
recent tropical weather. The new fruit is sizing well across the State and
growers have a positive outlook for next year's crop. Harvest of Valencia
oranges was completed, except for limited amounts to fresh squeeze plants.


The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to
see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can
give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.

A fellow got frightened during a
battle. He ran behind a tree and
started to cry. One of his friends
said to him, "Don't be a baby!" "I
wish I was a baby," he sobbed,
"and I wish I was a girl baby. I'm
frightened."
Do you know why some people
won't come to Christ and confess
Him? They're afraid.
It takes courage to be a
Christian. The Christian faith isn't a
religion of helpless husbands,
spineless spinsters, bashful bach-
elors, or cowardly children.
It's a religion of brave believers,
whose motto is: "If God be for us,
who can be against us?"
I dare you to turn your life over to
the Lord and to live for Him!

The Squeezin's
By Barbara Carlton
Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association


CITRUS SUMMER HAPPENINGS
Each year as the citrus fruit harvest comes to a close, it seems activity
within the industry also slows. The 2007, year has proven different: Activity
has continued into July. Growers have much to keep them busy in July and
August.
The Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, in coop-
-eration with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, will be hosting statewide information sessions on new guidelines
and regulations for the Citrus Health Response Program.
The purpose of these workshops is to help growers, nursery owners
and caretakers understand the new guidelines and regulations, as well as to
provide tools to effectively manage citrus production.
The agenda will include a program overview video covering nursery
requirements, budwood certification, decontamination, survey techniques
for greening and canker, and best management guidelines for citrus dis-
eases.
There will also be presentations on disease suppression techniques for
the Asian citrus psyllid, citrus greening and citrus canker. Agriculture offi-
cials and UF/IFAS staff will be in attendance to answer questions in a
panel-discussion format. The video will also be made available to growers
.for employee training and reference.
Meetings are scheduled around the state. Three of the meetings will be
easily accessible to Hardee County growers:
Tuesday, July 17, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the UF/IFAS Stuart Building,
1710 U.S. 17-98 S., Bartow.
Wednesday, Aug. 1, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, Family Service Center,
310 W. Whidden St., Arcadia.
Thursday, Aug. 2, from 9:30 a.m. to noon,. Highlands County
Extension Office, 4509 S.E. George Blvd., Sebring.
The Peace River Soil & Water Conservation District's Board of
-Directors' cost-share funding contract with the Florida Department of
Agriculture, Office of Water Policy, closed June 30 and the board looks for-
ward to starting the new contract year.
With the 2006-07 contract, a record $245,000 was committed to area
growers who implemented best management practices in their groves and
participated in the cost-share program to implement some desired updates
within their groves.
In Hardee County, over $68,000 was paid to help growers change to
cost-saving environmentally friendly production practices. Already Hardee
County growers have applied for nearly $124,000 in funding from the
2007-2008 contract soon to be executed.



Florida Has New Passport

For Its 160 State Parks


The Department of Environ-
mental Protection's (DEP) Florida
Park Service has released its State
Park Passport allowing visitors to
document their state park visits by
collecting stamps in the full color
booklet. Each of Florida's 160
award-winning state parks is repre-
sented on a page of the passport
along with other important infor-
mation about the state park system.
"Once visitors acquire the first
stamp, filling the passport often
becomes a life goal for individuals
and their families," said Florida
State Parks Director Mike Bullock.
"Whether it's a day trip, side trip,
weekend get-away or long vaca-
tion, visiting a Florida state park
creates memories to last a lifetime
and this passport helps visitors
remember those visits."
The Florida State Park passports
are on sale for $7.95 each. Visitors
can buy a passport at the ranger sta-
tion of a Florida state park or on the
web at www.FloridaStateParks.org
or by calling (352)628-5343.
The release of the passport is in
conjunction with the national and


statewide celebration of July as
Recreation and Parks Month. The
theme for this year's celebration is
Let's Go Outside, encouraging
young and old alike to go outdoors
and recreate, exercise, learn about
the environment and spend time
with family.
The first two-time Gold Medal
winner honoring the nation's best
state park service, Florida's state
park system is one of the largest in
the country with 160 parks span-
ning more than 700,000 acres and
100 miles of sandy white beach.
-From swimming and diving in
Florida's rivers and springs to bird-
ing and fishing or hiking and riding
on natural scenic trails, Florida's
state parks offer year-round out-
door activities for all ages.
Battle reenactmentss and Native
American festivals celebrate
Florida's unique history, while art
shows, museums and lighthouses
offer a window into Florida's cul-
tural heritage.

If you are interested in learning more about best management practices
and applying for cost-share funding, contact Geovanne Stinghen at (863)
993-4846.
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program also is helping grow-
ers make needed improvements. It is a voluntary conservation program
offering cost-share assistance to farmers and ranchers promoting agricul-
tural and environmental conservation. The program currently provides cost-
share assistance of up to 75 percent for certain conservation efforts or to
address resource concerns. Examples of projects relative to citrus produc-
tion include excessive nutrients and organic in groundwater or surface
water, aquifer overdraft, and inefficient water use on irrigated land.
The application process is limited to October through mid-December,
with project awards announced in mid- to late February. This year the pro-
gram has provided $1,308,268 of funding for Hardee County growers. If
you are interest in participating, contact Inara Montalvo at 773-4764,
extension 3.
The Florida Citrus Commission set the 2007-08 Florida Department of
Citrus budget and program plans by approving box tax rates. After can-
vassing the industry, and returning with mixed input, the commissioners
voted 8-4 in support of a processed orange rate. All other varieties were
approved on a unanimous vote.
Rates for the 2007-08 citrus season are as follows: processed orange
$.24, processed and fresh grapefruit $.35, processed specialty $.24 and
fresh specialty $.17.
The Florida Department of Citrus had requested a higher assessment,
due in large part to three items: matching greening research funds, abscis-
sion chemical registration and increasing reserves. Instead, the department
will now work within a $60 million budget, falling short of the requested
funding by $15 million.
Programs for the coming year will continue to focus on the health and
wellness message for advertising, public relations and Internet outreach.

Do you want more and more of God's kindness and peace?
Then learn to know Him better and better:
2 Peter 1:2
The Scriptures go on to say as vr :ome to know Him better, He will
give us, through His great power, everything we need for living a good life.
He even shares His own glory and goodness with us!
By that same mighty power He has given us all the other rich and won-
derful blessings He promised. For instance, the promise to save us from the
lust and rottenness all around us, and to give us His own character. As we
come to know Him better and better, we hate that fleshly part of us and
want to let it go and be more like Him.
As we come to know Him more, we will want to put our own desires
aside and will desire to please Him instead. Believe it or not, we will also
love other people more and enjoy being with them. We will grow more
.fruitful and useful to our Lord Jesus Christ.
A Golden Nugget would be to study His Word so we know who He is
and what His desires are, so we can be more like Him.

Janice Wheeler Is New Owner Of Hardee Livestock Market


By SUE CARPENTER
For The Herald-Advocate
Janice Wheeler recently pur-
chased Hardee Livestock Market
Inc. from Robert Ray Smith. She
has lived in Hardee County since
1973 and worked at the Livestock
Market for the past six years in var-
ious capacities, taking in cattle,
helping in the barn and doing what-
ever was required.
At Wheeler Farms Hardee
Livestock Inc., her brother, uncle
and cousins are now involved, with
her cousin Mark Wheeler acting as
the new president of the corpora-
tion.
"It's a family affair, but we still
have valuable people like Miss


Judy, who's been taking care of the
office for 27 years and Lewis
Chancey who has been the barn
manager for 31 years," Wheeler
said.
. "I started attending auctions at
age five when we lived in Lake-
land. If I behaved and got all my
chores done, Saturday morning my
Uncle Irving would take me to the
Cow Palace. I tell him this is all his
fault. I'd plead for bottle babies or
calves, but because we lived in
town, cows weren't permitted. As
an adult I've been able to raise and
show Limousin cattle the big red
beef," Wheeler said.
Robert Ray Smith is still with the
market as a consultant, giving


Janice Wheeler feeds, three orphaned bottle babies.

and visit with the people and the
cattle. I'm an animal person,"
Wheeler said.
The worst part of the job is the
weather, because it can't be con-
trolled. If there's a drought, people
must sell earlier than they want to.
When there's rain, lightning and
thunder, people don't like to come
out in bad weather. If there's a hur-
ricane, you might lose a roof and
have other complications. Or if
there's a freeze and the grass is
gone, the farmers have to sell early
because they don't have anything
to feed their cattle.
The Hardee auction starts at noon
on Monday and goes until they run
out of cattle. Usually six to eight
people bid. Some are buying for
two or three different companies,
so that gives a more competitive
atmosphere and a higher price.
Only cattle are auctioned. The mar-
ket is regulated by packers, stock-
yards and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
"If someone buys 200 to 300
head and are coming with semis to
transport them to a feedlot or
slaughterhouse, we keep the cattle
in pens with hay and water until
they arrive," Wheeler said.
"People who deal with cattle for
their livelihood always treat them
well, because that's how they make
money. Beef is high in protein, it's
good for you and tastes fantastic.


Newer methods of breeding and
feeding now make the beef with
less fat that's lower in cholesterol,"
she said.
Wheeler has opened the north-
bound entrance to make it easier for
people to come and go. She is also
building a drive-through unloading
dock so people won't have to back
up.
"Some of the smaller buyers and
sellers only come here two or three
times a year and are not familiar
with our set-up. Now they just need
to fit between the posts, and we'll


do the rest. We're trying to make it
as people-friendly as possible. We
want this to be an easy, comfortable
place for the buyers and dealers to
get together," Wheeler said.
Although prices are presently
down, they have been exceptional-
ly high. "Fourteen years ago my
first calves cost $75 and now they
go for $300. Back then I paid $75
to $125 for a high-priced heifer.
Now they're $300," Wheeler said.
Wheeler is grateful everybody in
her family is always ready to help
and stand behind her.


"My daddy and uncle all come
and help. Even my brother and
nieces help with sales. My
youngest niece who's only 12 has
already informed me that she plans
to take it over when she's old
enough. This is a family affair."
The Hardee Livestock Market is
located at 1201 South Sixth Avenue
in Wauchula. Call 863-773-9747.
Office business hours are 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Cattle are taken in on Sunday from
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Monday
from 7 a.m. until the sale is over.

FROM
THE
SOWER

SMichael A. Guido
Metter, Georgia


Wheno od made me oyster, He
guaranteed its security. He built
the oyster a house, a shell for
protection.
When hungry, the oyster just
opens his shell and in rushes the
food.
But when God made man and
the maid, He said, "Fill the earth,
and subdue it; you are the masters
of the fish and birds and all
animals."
Then He gave man seed-bearing
plants and fruit trees, and said,
"Farm the ground."
And the Living Bible adds, "Work
for your living. He who does not
work shall not eat."
God meant for us to aspire and
then to perspire, to hope and then
to hop to it.

A day at the beach.... How many times can you fill a bucket with sand?
There's always enough sand on the beach to fill a bucket over and over
again! There's enough to build sandcastles all afternoon and never run
out of sand. God made an enormous sand pile!
It's the same with God's love plentiful like the sand, there is always
enough. Our God is "a compassionate and gracious God...abounding in
love and faithfulness" (Psalm 86:15). There are many things in this worlds
that are in short supply. God's love is not one of them...it's the one thing
we can never "use up".
We can go to God over and over again to "refill the bucket." He always
has enough love for each and every one of us. Visit your house of worship
this week and every week and learn about God's infinite love.

Hank is a labrador retriever. He has been waiting for a good home since May. lie
has a valid rabies vaccination, so his adoption fee is only $35. Hank likes to roam.
A fenced-in yard with some land would be perfect for him.
Adoption fees are $45 and include a rabies vaccination and spaying or neutering of
the animal. C1itact 773-2320 if you are interested in adopting any cats or dogs
that desperately need a loving home. The kennel location is 685 Airport Road,
Wauchula, at the county landfill.

Dear Editor:
To all irresponsible pet owners
of Hardee County:
I recently had the privilege to
adopt a wonderful little dog from
the Hardee County Animal Control
Shelter. I would like to thank the
person for not caring enough about
her, so I could bring-her into my
home.
There were so many beautiful
dogs and cats (and kittens), I could
not even begin to comprehend what
had happened that brought them to
this shelter, except for one fact:
you, as a pet owner, just didn't
care!
Let me give you a couple of facts
that I hope will make you, the irre-
sponsible pet owners, so sick that
you will not be able to sleep for
weeks!
1. Last year, the Hardee County
Animal Control impounded 1,517
dogs and cats!
2. Last year, the Hardee County
Animal Control euthanized 1,171
dogs and cats!
3. Only three percent of the ani-
mals taken in by the Hardee County
Animal Control were saved! The
other 97 percent, you guessed it -
euthanized!
There is a program called
P.A.W.S (Pet Awareness With
Sterilizations). It is a program to
assist animal owners with low cost
spaying and neutering of dogs and
cats in unincorporated Hardee
County! Wauchula and Zolfo
Springs did not ask for any of the
grant money for their residents, but
the money is there for those of you
outside the city limits.
Being a pet owner is a big
responsibility! It is not to be
entered into in a haphazard manner.


summer lawn, you may need to
know about a condition that can
plague folks all year round -
arthritis. This booklet answers your
questions about the basic facts of
this disease and offers treatment
suggestions.
Summer will be gone before you
know it, so be sure to order your
Catalog today. There are three easy
ways to get your free copy:

It is a commitment made by you to
the animal. You are not the only
one involved in this relationship-
commitment. But you have the ulti-
mate say in what happens to the
pet.
It is there to give you uncondi-
tional devotion, no matter how you
treat him/her. When you drop
him/her off somewhere in the mid-
dle of nowhere, do you ever won-
der if your pet was actually res-
cued, hit by car, or just plain
starved to death because he/she did
not know how to fend for itself?
Every animal at the shelter had a
story to tell, and even though they
were kenneled, they were happy.
They had food, water, and human
contact. Most of them don't know
that their time is nearly up because
you didn't care enough to be a
responsible pet owner!
Yes, I saw your beautiful
German shepherd, the black lab
mix, the happy hound mix, the
beautiful, sad-eyed white pit bull. I
saw the cats that had one too many
litters (whose fault was that?) Not
Miss Kitty's. She was doing what
comes naturally! Oh, and the kit-
tens that you were so excited about,
but now they need a home yes, I
saw all of them!

I know sometimes it is necessary
to place an animal at the shelter,
health reasons of an elderly person,
a situation that won't allow you to
take your pet with you, but those
are usually the ones that get adopt-
ed rather quickly. But to give
absolutely no concern or considera-
tion about what happens to your pet
when you drop them off or discard
them like garbage is an absolute'
shame.
I don't care what your lame
excuse is. The fact of the matter is:
you have created a burden on the
residents of Hardee County. It costs
money to put an animal to sleep,
and it costs a lot when one multi-
plies it by the numbers listed above.
Why don't you, as the owner of a
pet make it your responsibility and
take it to the vet? Have it put to
sleep for $20 or if you want the pet,
but don't want any "little ones"
running around or Fido or Tom
being the cause of "little ones", call
the P.A.W.S. program at 773-2320.
The funds are available until some-
time in August 2007.
Now is the time to do something
good for the county. Get your pet
spayed or neutered! Be responsi-
ble! Not a responsibility!
Thanks,
Terrin L. McKelvey-Green
Zolfo Springs
P.S. I do not work for any of the
organizations mentioned in this let-
ter. These are my facts and opin-
ions. No one coerced, paid, etc., me
to write this letter.

Telling The Truth ...
By J. Adam Shanks
Preacher


A SAD SAFETY TIP
Today I received a safety tip by e-mail about keeping your car keys
next to your bed when you sleep. This way if you hear someone breaking
into your house, you can set off your car alarm with your key fob. Any thief,
killer or rapist is likely to be run off by the noise, and maybe the neighbors
will look out their windows and then be able to help identify such a dan-
gerous character.
Putting the value of such a safety tip aside, it is sad that this is the way
we have to live in today's world. It used to be that neighbors knew neigh-
bors by name, spent time getting to know each other, and took care of each
other.
In today's world, we're lucky if we even know what our neighbors look
like from a distance. In today's world, we not only are unfamiliar with our
neighbors, we wouldn't trust them farther than we can throw them. (Luckily
this is not the case with my neighbors!)
We are constantly in fear of terrorists, murderers, rapists, thieves and
many others. We hear every day on every news station about the latest
crimes. We watch television dramas that depict heinous crimes being com-
mitted to people like you and me. We hear that friends of friends have suf-
fered at the hands of some criminal.
Our world is a world of fear.
Because of this world of fear, we seriously consider the advice in safe-
ty tips we receive, recognizing their value and that they could just save our
lives some day.
This is not the world that God intended us to live in. This is not the kind
of life that we were created for. It is the life that we have created for our-
selves through sin and its passing pleasure. Murder is often the result of
revenge: a sin. Rape is often the result of sexual lust: a sin. Thievery is often
the result of covetousness: a sin. These things we live in fear of are the
result of people who have not learned to walk with Christ.
So let me challenge you tonight to watch the evening news, listen to
the deplorable state of the world around us, and thank God that you can
avoid that world.
God has given us a chance to "escape the corruption that is in the
world" (2 Peter 1:4). God has given those who have escaped this world
exceedingly great and precious promises. Although we might live in fear in
this world, we can look forward to a world of perfected people in Heaven
one day.
We can live in the paradise that God created us for, in His presence
worshiping Him daily. We can put away our key fobs, and our cars for that
matter, and walk those precious streets of gold. We can live above fleshly
desires and desire only the things of God.
And what a glorious, eternal day that will be! I'm Telling the Truth.


My oldest daughter, Jillian, and I were standing in the kitchen one
morning; she with her hands in a sink full of sudsy water and me holding
an empty coffee cup that was screaming to be filled. I hadn't been awake
long, which could explain how I fell victim to the prank she was setting up.
"Mom, did you see that great big spider in the window between the
glass and the screen?" Jillian asked.
I pulled back the curtain and looked. I had seen the spider before and
it was huge. It was what we call a grove spider; a great big brown thing with
4 body the size of an M&M peanut. One long crooked leg was hooked in
the screen mesh, and it was just dangling there, with all the rest of its legs
draped around it like the ribs of a broken down umbrella.
"Yeah," I.said, yawning. "I would say it's long dead, considering it's
just hanging there by that one leg."
"No, he's not dead," she said firmly. "If you don't believe me, you
come in here tonight and look and you'll see him running all over the place,
catching the bugs that get inside the screen. He's not dead. He's just sleep-
ing."
I gawked at her, really, really needing coffee at the moment, but took
another look at the spider. It appeared to me to be rather dried up and shriv-
eled for something that was actually alive.
"Hanging by one leg like that? Nah. He's dead as a hammer."
"No, he's not, I swear. You come in here tonight and look, you'll see.
He's smart; he plays dead, and then when it's dark he catches all the bugs
he wants."
"Jillian, there is no way a spider would sleep like that, upside down and
hanging by one leg."
"Fine, whatever you say."
I shrugged it all off and forgot about the spider, going on about my day.
At nightfall, when we were all gathered in the house again, Jillian grabbed
me by the arm and led me to the kitchen.
"See? I told you!" she pointed.
My mouth dropped open and I stared. There was the spider with the
long legs, no longer hanging lifelessly from the screen, but running around
slaying insects like a little spider ninja.
"Well, I'll be!" I said. Just about that time Fred walked into the kitchen.
"You'll be what?"
"Look at that spider."
"What about it?"
"Did you know that he hangs from the screen all day long by one leg,
looking like he's dead, and then he chases bugs all night? I didn't know a
spider would do that."
"They don't," Fred said.
Here's where I had a chance to avoid being humiliated but, as I am
prone to do, I just charged ahead.
"Well, how do you know?" I challenged.
"I just know."
"OK, fine! But I know I saw that spider hanging by one leg just this
morning, still as a statue, and now he's running around fit as a fiddle." I
swept back the curtain to show Fred where the spider had been hanging
and, dang it all, there was the same sad spider dangling there by that same
long leg.
"Did it ever occur to you that there could be two spiders? One dead and
one alive?" Fred asked, cocking an eyebrow.
By now Jill was hooting like a hyena and Fred was staring at me like
I'd lost my mind.
That dead spider hangs there by that one long leg to this day, a
reminder that spiders do not play possum and that in this house, it's war,
and it's every gullible man for himself..

Outta' The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission


JOIN THE DOVE CLUB NOW!
To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but spend-
ing quality time in the outdoors with good friends and family. One of the
best ways to do that is through dove hunting. And, with that in mind, it's
easy to see why great dove hunts are in such high demand and often diffi-
cult to find.
That's why the Florida Wildlife Commission created its special-
opportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance to experi-
ence exceptional dove hunting on the state's best public dove fields.
Dove Club permits allow one adult and one youngster under 16 to hunt
all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and
enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds. There are a total of
eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields, and all are half-day
hunts and take place on Saturdays.
There are seven special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout
the state from as far west as Pensacola to as far south as Miami.
One of the fields is on Fussell Farm Public Small-Game Hunting Area
in Polk County. Another is on Allapattah Flats in Martin County.
The five remaining fields might be familiar to some dove hunters, and
they are: Schneider Farms in Escambia County, Caravelle Ranch in
Putnam County, Lake George Dexter/Mary Farms Unit in Volusia County,
Hilochee in Lake County and Frog Pond in Miami-Dade County.
Last year, more than 1,200 hunters participated in the special-opportu-
nity dove hunts and took nearly 2,700 birds, for an average harvest of bet-
ter than two birds per hunter.
Dove Club permits went on sale July 1, and hunters can purchase these
season passes at any county tax collector's office, license agent, online at
MyFWC.com/dove or by calling toll-free 1-888 Hunt Florida. They're sold
first-come, first-served, and the best fields go quickly, so you'd better get a
move on.
In addition to Dove Club permits, there's another permit hunters might
want to apply for in July, and that's a recreational use permit.
Recreational use permits were designed by the FWC to keep certain
wildlife management areas within the system. Landowners of these proper-
ties were under heavy pressure to lease their lands to private individuals for
hunting clubs willing to pay a lot more money for use of the properties, so
the FWC created the Recreational Use Program as a way to encourage
landowners by providing more revenue to them, allowing these 10 proper-
ties to stay open to public hunting.
These select wildlife management areas are in the northern half of the

state, where demand for premium hunting land is high.
The areas are: Blue Water Creek, Escambia County; Robert Brent,
Gadsden and Liberty counties; Flint Rock, Jefferson and Wakulla counties;
San Pedro Bay, Madison and Taylor counties; Nassau, Nassau County;
Grove Park, Alachua County; Gulf Hammock, Levy County; 12-Mile
Swamp, St. Johns County; Relay, Flagler County; and Fort McCoy, Marion
County.
A recreational-use permit allows the permit holder and one dependent
youth to hunt, fish and use the property for other recreational activities.
With the exception of hunting, the permit holder's spouse and other depen-
dent children also can fish and use the property for recreational purposes.,
These permits provide great opportunities for families to enjoy the
great outdoors together with activities such as camping, hiking, horseback
riding, ATV riding and wildlife viewing.
Get ahold of a 2007-08 Recreational Use Permit Worksheet if you'd
like to apply for one of these great areas. Worksheets can be downloaded
from MyFWC.com/hunting under "Recreational Use" and are available at
FWC regional offices and tax collectors' offices in close proximity to the
specific WMAs.
Worksheets may be submitted online at MyFWC.com/hunting or at
any license agent or tax collector's office as of Tuesday. Permits are issued
first-come, first-served, and you can check availability at
MyFWC.com/hunting under "Limited Entry Hunts."
You may only apply for and receive one recreational-use permit for the
same area, and once you get one, it can be renewed annually for the next
two years, essentially making it a three-year permit. Also, all applicants are
included in the antlerless deer permit drawing, if those permits are
approved for the particular area.
So if you'd like to join the FWC's Dove Club or apply for a recre-
ational use permit, you need to do it this month. Here's wishing you luck in'
drawing the hunt of your dreams.

Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him with questions about

Pro-Growth, Declares Commission


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
All five County Commissioners
are in favor of orderly growth in the
county.
When a county resident chal-
lenged the Hardee County Com-
mission during its meeting last
week, everyone declared his posi-
tion.
The resident said she had heard
repeated comments in the commu-
nity that the members of the com-
mission and County Manger Lex
Albritton are anti-growth and asked
that each one go on record on the.
issue.
Most said they were for good
growth, not just anything that
comes up.
Commissioner Gordon Norris
related community concern with
recent negotiations for Graybar to
come into the county's industrial
park. "It's a great employment
source and it is welcome anytime
we can have that."
Commissioner Minor Bryant
said he wasn't sure it was worth
responding, anyone who sits in


commission meetings can tell. "We
want smart growth, not just any-
thing anywhere. There has to be
growth and planning for it. We do
need to be careful what happens.
Because several of us are in agri-
culture is not a reason to paint us as
anti-growth."
Commission Chairman Bobby
Ray Smith said, "I am pro-growth,
but we need to look at every
request carefully."
Commissioner Nick Timmerman
agreed. "But we need, our depart-
ments need, to be friendly, not
adversarial to potential business.
Growth has to be planned for
according to the rules."
Finally, Commissioner Dale
Johnson commented, "I'm also for
smart growth. But I have heard sev-
eral people say they are anti-
growth, the county is beautiful the
way it is, leave it alone."
Albritton spoke last. "People say
we're anti-growth when we ask
questions and that offends people.
We are not trying to make it diffi-
cult but have to 'ask questions for

BIKE SAFETY: PROTECT YOUR HEAD
Each year in the United States roughly 250 children die in bicycle-
related accidents, and about half a million more are injured in bicycling
accidents.
Although it's estimated that 75 percent of the serious injuries could
',have been avoided if a helmet had been worn, only about 20 percent of chil-
dren in the United States wear a helmet.
Bicycle helmets are a matter of life and death. Wearing one should not
,be optional for your child.
This can't be emphasized enough, and in many states it's the law.
According to the Florida Department of Transportation, any bicycle rider or
:.passenger under 16 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet that is proper-
:ly fitted, fastened securely, and meets a nationally recognized standard.
A child's head should always be protected while biking. Remember
that three out of four bike accidents involve an injury to the head, and a
'.crash could mean permanent brain damage or death for a child who doesn't
wear one while riding.
Today's helmets for children are very lightweight and comfortable.
-Pick bright colors that are clearly visible to everyone driving or riding on
;the road. For fun, children can even decorate their helmets with cool reflec-
tive stickers.
Look for a helmet that's well ventilated and fits your child well. When
,;buying a helmet, turn it over and look inside for either a "CPSC" or "Snell"
,:sticker. A CPSC sticker means the helmet meets tough Consumer Product
',;Safety Commission standards, which were introduced by the U.S. govern-
'ment in 1999. A "Snell" sticker means the helmet is approved by The Snell
'Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization that tests helmet safety and
,.also sets stringent standards.
Make sure your child's helmet has the correct fit and adjustments. Even
'the best helmet can't help protect your child's head if it doesn't fit correctly,
so fit is very important.
A helmet should sit level and firmly but comfortably on your child's
"head. It shouldn't be tilted forward or backward, and your child shouldn't
,,'wear a baseball cap underneath it. The helmet should have strong wide
straps that fasten snugly under the chin. No more than a finger's width
1, should be able to fit beneath the strap when it's fastened correctly, and it
,should always be fastened while riding.
After taking a serious hit, helmets lose their capacity to absorb shock.
.They're designed that way; the inner foam structure is altered by a very hard
blow. If your child ever has a significant fall and hits any surface hard with
*the helmet, immediately replace the helmet.

this board to make sufficient deci-
sions. People shouldn't be offended
by disclosure. Development does-
n't come free and there have to be
impact fees and processing fees to
pass the costs back to those who
cause them.
"It (growth) has got to be embod-
ied in rules and regulations applied
with consistency and fairness,
"Albritton concluded.
A couple of those issues had
arisen earlier in the commission
meeting.
Everett Shawn Rimes raised a
question of why he couldn't get a
building permit for a home on 12
acres he had purchased off Ollie
Roberts Road.
Nick Staszko, county director of
planning and development, ex-
plained the problem. Rimes owns a
12.5-acre lot in Paradise By the
Lake, a minor subdivision, platted
in 1996. However, because Payne
Creek, a protected waterway, runs
through the property, it would
require at least 20 acres to build a
house.
The minor subdivision was plat-
ted according to Florida Statute
Chapter 177. "We wouldn't have
known then what plans there would
be for future development," said
Smith. Bryant asked if Rimes could
donate a conservation easement
and retain enough 'acreage for his
house. The property cannot be re-
subdivided because it is already
part of a platted subdivision.
Attorney Ken Evers explained
that although the property met set-
backs from the flood plain, it did
not meet the density requirements
of the county's Comprehensive
Land Use Plan.
After more discussion, Rimes
was asked to find out how many
useable acres he had outside the
flood plain and Evers was directed.
to seek the Attorney General's
opinion on what would be a legal
method to resolve the problem.
Bryant asked about a request to
create a minor subdivision on a six-
acre parcel off Sweetwater Road.
Staszko said this was the way to
appropriately make the property
eligible for building permits.

In other action, the commission:
Approved Resolution 07-29
establishing filing fees for Com-
munity Development permits creat-
ed under Florida Statutes Chapter
190. This is a special taxing district
of less than 1,000 acres. One of
more than 1,000 acres must be
decided by the Land and Water
Adjudicatory Commission, com-
prised of the Governor and Cabinet.
On a community development
which intends to sell bonds for its
property, the commission (by state
law) has to have certain informa-
tion to make its decision. Hardee's
proposed $9,000 in fees is consid-
erably less than the six nearest
counties surrounding it.
Approved an updated fee
schedule for services at the Hardee
County Health Department which
provides more than 12,000 undu-
plicated individual services a year.
Heard a report on the 40th
anniversary party held at Cracker
Trail Museum in Pioneer Park on
June 21, when more than 100 peo-
ple visited between 4 and 8 p.m.
Reappointed Tomas Macias
to another four-year term on the
Industrial Development Authority.
Heard an update on hurricane
preparedness by Emergency Man-
agement Director Rich Shephard.
A neutral or weak La Nina
weather system will increase the
likelihood of hurricanes happening
this year. Of 13 to 17 named
storms, seven to 10 will become
hurricanes and three to five of them
may be major events, said Shepard.
"If only one hits here, it's a bad
year," he commented, as he
described additions which make
hurricane preparedness here more
effective.

Dear Editor:
Last year my son was suicidal
after the breakup of his girlfriend. I
didn't know about his suicidal
thoughts at the time, although I
could see he took it pretty hard.
But thankfully he happened to
find the website for St. Ann's
Episcopal Church of Wauchula on
the internet. That website listed a
phone number for a suicide hotline,
which thankfully he called.
He was able to get the help he
needed, and he was later able to
talk to us about how he felt, thanks
to the hotline. Today he is fine and
enrolled in college and very happy.
If anyone ever has suicidal
thoughts, they should call the sui-

cide hotline at 1-800-784-2433 or
1-800-999-9999 (for teens).
I want to -thank St.. Ann's
Episcopal Church for the wonder-
'ful information on their website.
I was looking at the website for
the first time today, and I saw they
have information on where to get
help for alcoholism, physical
abuse, runaways, mental health
issues, school violence and much
more (too much to list).
I can't thank them enough for all
the help they've given my family
and the community.

Sincerely,
Anonymous and Grateful'

Thompson, Guerndt Invent Hole
Burner For Plastic: A new agricul-
tural device patented by two Zolfo
Springs men could mean a revolu-
tion for Central Florida farmers.
Ken Thompson and Fred Guerndt
Jr. have developed a device to be
put to practical use by local farm-


ty to publicly say how they feel
about the possibility of a state
prison being placed within the
county.
The County Commission, at its
weekly Thursday meeting, passed a
motion to hold a public hearing on
the state prison issue July 29 at the
Agri-Civic Center. If the hearing is
anything like the initial discussion,
it promises to be a lively evening.

If I had not taken the time to call
to find out the legal aspect I could
have been issued a ticket or worse!
If fireworks, are- illegal; then it
should be illegal to sell them! That
makes sense to me!
So who is responsible for this?
Wal-Mart? City Council? I want
my money back, and I want this

If we buy them, we can pop them

Dear Editor:
I am very confused and maybe
some of your readers have an opin-
ion about this!
We purchased fireworks at the
local Wal-Mart and the huge fire-
work tent that was set up at the
parking lot! While setting up to
shoot these fireworks off, someone
said there is a law against shooting
the fireworks!
Since we were outside the city
limits, I decided to contact the
Sheriff's Department and was told
that yes, indeed, we are only
allowed us use sparklers and other
things that do not explode.
Then why in the world were they
allowed to sell the fireworks in the
