READY TO ROLL


School Breakfasts Not




Free To All Anymore


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
All Hardee County schoolchild-
ren will not be entitled to a free
breakfast anymore following a late-
in-coming decision by the state
Department of Education.
Since 2001, the local school dis-
trict has served breakfast as a free
meal to all students. No more.
Now, breakfast will be dished up
as usual but will come at a cost for
some. Whether students start their
day with a dining tab, and how
much that bill is, will be based on
state eligibility rules.
Children whose families qualify
for free meals will continue to eat a
free breakfast.
Those on the reduced-price plan
will now have to pay 30 cents for
that first meal of the day.
All other students will have to
fork over $1 to eat breakfast at
school.
Shocked by the unexpected
change, School Board members
last Thursday night voted 3-2 to


approve the new plan. Members
Tanya Royal and Gina Neuhofer
voted to reject it, complaining the
state dropped this on the district too
suddenly and without sufficient
lead time to notify parents.
To help combat that problem, the
district has decided not to imple-


ment the new charges during the
first two weeks of this new school
year which begins on Monday.
After that, the "sliding scale" of
free, 30 cents or $1 will apply.
Deputy Schools Superintendent
Rocky Kitchens told the board that

2006-07 Expulsions Total 8


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A seventh-grade boy who socked
a teacher became the final expul-
sion for the 2006-07 school year in
a hearing before the Hardee County
School Board last week.
His hearing was preceded last
month by two others, both for
Hardee Senior High School stu-
dents accused of having marijuana
on campus. One boy carried it in
his front pants pocket, the other hid


it in his shoe, School Board mem-
bers were told.
All incidents occurred in May,
just. prior to the close of the 2006-
07 academic year.
.Last Thursday night's expulsion
hearing for the Hardee Jn ior High
School boy brought the t tal num-
ber for that most severe oftiscipli-
nary penalties up to eight.
It marks a huge drop from the
previous year's 20 expulsions, and

Someone in southwest Wauchula
needs to step up to the plate.
An opportunity for a new city
commissioner from District 6 has
opened due to the impending resig-
nation of Mavis Best (Brown).
Best, a 33-year city employee who
came back from retirement to serve
as. a commissioner, has recently
married and is moving out of the
county. Her resignation is effective
Sept. 21.
Anyone interested in filling her
seat has to be at least age 18 and a


registered voter for at least a year.
Commission members are paid a
total of $430 per month, which
includes $30 toward the utility bill,
$200 salary and $200 expense
allowance.
A potential candidate should
complete a resume and bring it to
the City Administrative building on
South Seventh Avenue in a sealed
envelope addressed to City Clerk
Crissy Abbott. The commission
will rank applicants and choose
someone to fill the District 6 slot
for the next year.
There are seven districts repre-


sented on the city commission, two
from each of the three districts,
which used to be called wards.
There is also an at-large position
for anyone within the city limits.
The at-large seat is occupied by
Jerry Conerly. Districts 1 and 2 are
the territory east of U.S. 17. Seats
are held respectively by Troy Brant,
up for re-election in 2008, and
Connie Spieth, up for re-election in
2010.
Districts 3 and 4 are west of U.S.
17 and north of Main Street.
Commissioners there are Ken

will be Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Vice Mayor Gibson, 53, has
served on the City Commission
since 1996. She is a 1971 graduate
of Hardee High School.
Her husband, Jack, recently
retired from the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation, formerly
served on the City Commission and
was mayor. He is currently chair-
man of the city's historical commit-
tee. They have a son, Daniel, a civil
deputy with the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office.
Fern Gibson said she works well
with city employees and is proud of
them and the three city department
heads: Police Chief John Scheel,
City Manager David Elbertson, and
City Clerk Pam Northup.
"We have a good City Commis-
sion that works well together. We
get the job done quickly and effi-
ciently. Meetings do not last until
midnight like they once did."
Gibson said her goals in a new
three-year term would include
improving animal control and city
sidewalks and, if grants are avail-
able, expanding the city sewer plant
and getting more recreation for
young people, such as a building.
She would like to see the old fire
station improved.
She said the city has to operate
"lean and conservative" because of
tight finances. She noted Bowling

CRASH INJURES 3


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
A Monday afternoon wreck left three people injured, including one child. The four-door sedan pictured above was traveling on
Post Plant Road when for an unknown reason it was involved in a single-vehicle crash at 1:51 p.m. The vehicle overturned and
came to final rest off the roadway on its roof. Two occupants were airlifted to Tampa General Hospital while the child was airlifted
to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, according to Hardee County Fire-Rescue reports. The victims' identities and current
conditions remain unknown. The Florida Highway Patrol, which responded to the scene, said Tuesday afternoon that it had no
record of the crash.

School buses are ready to roll for
opening day on Monday.
And Transportation Director
Dick Daggett reminds motorists to
use extra caution now that a new
academic year is beginning.
Daggett heads a department that
employs 51, including himself, as it
works to provide safe travel to and
from school for about 2,400 Hardee
County youngsters.
It takes 40 buses to do that job,
needed to cover 30 bus routes and
the times some buses are out of ser-
vice and in the shop. Four mechan-
ics keep them running, Daggett
says.
Add to that the 35 bus drivers
who keep them rolling.
There are five bus tutors to assist
the drivers, one driver trainer, two
routing specialists, one parts clerk,
one seQretary, one office manager
and one director.


Daggett notes each bus under-
goes a thorough safety inspection
to state Department of Education
specifications every 20 days. While
this is "an enormous task that takes
a lot of time," Daggett notes it
"ensures that our buses are at their
safest level when transporting chil-
dren."
And that's a job his transporta-
tion workers take as a commitmeiit.
Daggett says that in the next 180
days, his department will:
use over 100,000 gallons of
diesel fuel.
travel more than half a mil-
lion miles.
spend over $30,000 on tires.
use more than $100,000 for
repair parts.
But most importantly, he says,
his department "will do cter. thing
possible to keep your children safe
on their way to school and on their
trip home at the end of the day."

It's time again to get rid of risky
rubbish.
Three months rolls around fast.
The quarterly Hardee County
Household Hazardous Waste
amnesty day is Saturday.
With school starting Monday, it's
an excellent time to use this last
weekend to clean out the garage,
shed, shelves and closets to collect
the variety of hazardous waste you
may have accumulated.
Put it together and take it to the
Hardee County Sanitary Landfill,
685 Airport Road, three miles.east
of Wauchula north of SR 636 (East
Main Street).
Between 8 a.m. and noon, each
household can freely bring up to 60
pounds of household hazardous
waste, pesticides, aerosol cans, flo-
rescent light bulbs and other prod-
ucts in and around your home.
Businesses which generate less
than 220 pounds of hazardous
waste per month may bring their
waste in for proper disposal but
will have to pay current contract
prices. Those with more that 220
pounds and less than 2,200 pounds
may call for pickup at their place of
business, also at current contract
prices.
Pile the trunk of your car or your
pickup full and head to the landfill
to safely dispose of items that do
not belong in with the regular
garbage as they pollute the environ-
ment, take up valuable landfill
space and possibly contaminate the
landfill runoff water.
Rusted disinfectant cans, nearly
empty bottles of floor wax or drain
cleaner, bleach and insect spray,

-returns the district to a downward
trend in expulsions.
While expulsions generally num-
bered in the upper teens or low 20s
for years, in 2002-03 they went
down to 14. The next year, in 2003-
04, they decreased again, to 12.
And in 2004-05 expulsions de-
clined further, to the single digit of
nine.
But 2005-06 broke that pattern as
the need for expulsions soared,
finally ending with 20.
With expulsions for the 2006-07
now finalized at eight, the down-
ward trend is restored.
All students in these last three
hearings were expelled from main-
stream classrooms for the entire
upcoming 2007-08 school year.
Student number six was a 15-

"It's not that many years since we

ed out. "We feel it is the parents'
responsibility, but some kids
weren't eating," Kitchens added.
He asked the board for sugges-
tions.
Kitchens further stated that the
federal government only reim-
bursed the local district 24 cents for
each breakfast eaten by a student
who normally would have had to
pay full price.
Students who qualified for free
meals generated a $1.56 reimburse-
ment for that morning meal. .
For students on the discount'
plan, the money paid back to the
district is $1.26.
The difference in the cost to
serve the meals and the federal
reimbursement "has created a drain
on the food service budget," he
said.

Kitchens explained the switch
was "necessary to meet the budget -
and keep food service operating."',
Formerly, the department operated
under Provision Two of the Federal
School Breakfast Program. That
option has been removed.
He did note, however, that the
district may be allowed to return to
it after developing a "base-line"
year, which is required every four
years.
"I understand it, but I think it's
too quick to spring on people,".

after changes to the district's lunch
prices were put in place for the new

Lunches will cost 50 cents more:
for students not qualifying for free:

Taylor Bolin Enjoys Being


A Mentor, School Voluntecr


"Hulbert

%Homes


By GAYLE KNIGHT (MISS G)
For The Herald-Advocate
Taylor Bolin, 13, knows the
importance of lending a helping
hand and being a mentor to the
kindergarten class of Mrs. Kristie
Gough at Hilltop Elementary.
For over 100 hours during the
2006-07 school year this HJHS
seventh grader rolled out of bed,
often before daylight, to arrive at
school with a smile on her face and
a willingness to do whatever she
could to make learning fun and pro-
ductive for a classroom of ram-
bunctious and inquisitive 5-year-
olds.
"Volunteers are such a valuable
part of our school staff," Hilltop
Principal Tracey Nix said. "It's
especially gratifying to see Taylor
and the other teenagers who are
pitching in to make our school the
best."
"We are working to install pride
in our students and having positive
role models like Taylor is a big step
toward achieving this goal," Mrs.
Nix continued.
Among Taylor's jobs at Hilltop
were reading to the little ones and
helping them take A.R. tests to earn
prizes. She thinks she must have
graded at least a "gazillion" papers
and now realizes just how much
work goes into teaching each day.
"It seems like I spent hours asking
over and over again questions like
'What number comes after 2?' and
'Now, what does 'a' say?"


"I don't know if I want to be a
teacher," she laughed. "It's fun to
be with the kids because they are so
happy, but there's always too much
other stuff to do."
Taylor had the honor of singing
the Star-Spangled Banner at the
first ever awards ceremony at
Hilltop Elementary. "It was excit-
ing to be a part of the Mane Event
and see the little kids when they got
their names called out for good
behavior. They were so cute."
After many hectic mornings at
elementary school Taylor headed to
HJHS where she will be an eighth
grader in the fall.
Softball and volleyball are part of
Taylor's active life at junior high.
She is looking forward to making
both teams again this year as well
as continuing with her dance class-
es. For six years she trained with
Step by 'Step Studio and is current-
ly enrolled at Tip Toes Dance
Studio in Wauchula. She is ready to
do the work that it takes to do
everything and do it well.
Taylor's proud family includes
parents Todd and Millie Bolin,
brother Jacob, 11, and Bo and
Pumpkin, the doggies.
The young teenager has long
been involved in serving her com-
munity. As a fourth grader at WES
Taylor represented her classroom
as a member of Student Council.
She remembers singing at nursing
homes, collecting food items for
the needy, and raising money for


the school's Relay for Life team.
"It made me feel good to help
others," Taylor said.
This summer Taylor and many
other teenagers in her First Baptist
Church Impact Group had the won-
derful experience of traveling to
Stetson University in Deland to
participate in mission work. She
was part of a project that involved
planting flower beds, pruning bush-
es, and cleaning up the grounds for
a non-profit counseling group.
At Stetson Taylor became more
aware of the situation faced by the
homeless. "It was awesome and
cool .to get a chance to provide
lunches for these people. I definite-
ly realize how blessed I am when I
see the needs of so many people,"
she commented.
At a recent meeting of the Hardee
County School Board Taylor was
one of several teenagers who
received a plaque of appreciation
for their dedication from
Superintendent Dennis Jones and
board members.
All this attention hasn't gone to
Taylor's head. Indeed she is quick
to point out that she wasn't the only
one willing to share her time and
abilities at Hilltop. "Be sure to
mention Julian Varela, Kailah
White, and Brian and Savanna
Hagans," she said.
Congratulations and thanks to
Taylor Bolin, a Hardee County
teenager who is truly "Making a
Difference" in the lives of others.


Hardee Superintendent of Schools Dennis Jones recognized
Taylor's volunteerism.

SKITTLES
"Did you mean it, Christopher?" I had to know.
Christopher, who could float easily from being profoundish to being
off the wall, responded, "Rick, you know I did." He was only 9, but I knew
his words were truth that Friday night.
Friday night the gathering was a 7 to midnight prayer meeting.
Heartfelt prayers and worshipful praise music punctuated the evening.
Christopher seemed a little restless. He got up from his seat and stood
at the rear of the sanctuary. I glanced back occasionally. He was doing fine,
even though I did notice he was munching on candy -Skittles.
The did-you-mean-it moment came when he responded to the preach-
er's invitation to accept Jesus Christ. The preacher said, "Raise your hand.'
I glanced back; Christopher's hand was in the air.
After prayers of repentance were offered, I went back to Christopher.
He told me, "Rick, when I came here tonight I felt hungry. And it could-
n't be satisfied by eating these." He pointed to the Skittles he was holding.
He smiled, "Now I feel satisfied."
Jesus spoke of this type of experience during His Sermon on the
Mount. "Blessed and spiritually prosperous are those wxho hunger and thirst
for a right standing with God, for they shall be satisfied, completely."
And David, the masterful author of the Psalms, wrote about his per-
sonal appetite-pleasing encounters with God: "My soul will be satisfied as
with the richest food."
What Jesus taught about, both Christopher and David experienced per-
sonally.
God has something more satisfying than Skittles. God's banquet table
of satisfaction is in knowing Him personally. And you are invited.

Pioneer Park's Hart Cabin


Used In Historical Film
By SUE CARPENTER
For The Herald-Advocate
Director Sandy Scott of the "
Cracker Trail Museum in Pioneer h
Park recently cooperated on a film I --
project depicting 19th century life ,
in central Florida.
It all started when Larry Levy, c
president of the Avon Park
Historical Society and his wife \ --
Elaine, director of the Avon Park ;, -
Historical Museum, visited the
Cracker Trail Museum in Zolfo_
Springs. When they told me of their ..
project, we all felt the Hart cabin ...
would be perfect as a backdrop for
their film," Scott said. t.
Rick Shorrock of Big Byte Video *
Productions in Lake Placid is film- *
ing the docu-drama for the Avon COURTESY PHO0
Park Historical Museum. It is titled Elaine Levy shows some artifacts used as props in film.
"From Founding to Freeze" and is
about the city's first nine years
starting with 1894.
David Flowers plays the part of
Oliver Crosby, the founder of Avon
Park. Jimmy Rae Garner Butts por- '
trays his wife Emma. The period k ,
drama is told in the style of "You
Were There" and is hosted by Hal -
Graves, a local TV broadcaster.
Avon Park Historical Museum .
Director Elaine Levy brought sev-
eral artifacts: hats, pictures, letters,
books, vases, etc. for use as props.
"The Hart cabin was built in
1879 and is probably one of Hardee
County's oldest houses. It fit with :. 1
the time period they are portraying -
in this film," Scott said. I. . .
This section of the former home "
of William Henry and Mary Jane ---
Hart was donated by their great-
grandson, Wendell Smith, in 1979. -
The couple raised four daughters
and three sons in the home when it Larry Levy (left) reviews script with Rick Shorrock.
was in its entirety. The Hart cabin is
located in the Pioneer Settlement -^-
next to the Cracker Trail Museum.
"We had a different film crew
here for a full day last year making
a cowboy documentary. We had a
blacksmith here demonstrating his
work. When they saw the Hart
cabin they also did some filming
inside. They even included the out-
house," Scott said.
Anyone interested in using the
facilities for a project should con-
tact Sandy Scott for permission.
Although projects of that nature are
welcomed, they like to maintain a
normal atmosphere for visitors to
the Pioneer Settlemenit:
"I commend Larry and-fifs group
for putting this together. It will be
a 15-minute film shown at the Avon
Park Historical Museum. It should
be worthwhile, and I'm looking
forward to seeing it. I think this is
great publicity and will help our -
museum," Scott said. Videographer Rick Shorrock (right) films actor David Flowers

Printer Cartridges Can

Mean Cash For BGE


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
Brenda Terrell, a second-grade
teacher at Bowling Green Elemen-
tary School, will be collecting used
printer cartridges for a classroom
fundraiser.
The cartridges will be recycled
by "Empties4Cash," a recycling
and fundraising business. Each of
the cartridges will be given a price,
and the money will go straight into
the classroom.
Prices range from $2-$6 for each
of the cartridges.
Terrell says she got the idea from
a fellow teacher. She will be the
only teacher at BGE that will be
collecting the cartridges.
"I am glad this opportunity came
around. I will be collecting money
not only for my classroom, but I


I


V


would like to help out the other sec-
ond-grade teachers as well," she
said.
The fundraiser will be going all
year long. Money raised will go
toward buying science supplies and
extra books for students.
"A lot of the supplies we need for
our classes we must pay for out of
our own pockets. I will be using
this fundraiser to help lessen the
load," Terrell said.
Students will be asked to bring in
printer cartridges they come across.
Terrell added there will also be a
collection box in Wal-Mart, where
anyone in the community can con-
tribute to the fundraiser.
"I hope that through this
fundraiser I will be able to teach
my students not to just throw
everything away," Terrell said.

City Manager Gets Accolades


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The honeymoon is over and the
family is pleased with the new
addition.
Hired in February 2005, Wau-
chula City Manager Rick Giroux
has survived some early misunder-
standings and obtained a wealth of
praise at Monday evening's City
Commission meeting.
During his hiring, Commissioner
Ken Lambert was cautiously opti-
mistic. "Rather than hire the first
person, we want to get the best per-
son for the position. It will set the
tone for the future. A bad hire is
three times worse than no hire. I
really like his enthusiasm. Every
answer was what I wanted to hear,"
he said then.
The positive comments on
Monday started with Police Chief
William Beattie. "The city manager
praises us a lot, but what you have
here is a diamond in the rough.
He's got us $750,000 for the airport
and a million dollars for the waste-
water plant. He went before the
Economic Development. He did
the $69,000 grant application for
the airport in two days. He's got the
city's heart attached to his own.
Whenever we drop in, he stops
what he's doing and listens to us.


Then he goes back to getting the
job done," said Beattie.
Public Works Director Ray
McClellan said the chief stole his
thoughts, but added," It took him
less than 48 hours to put together
the application for the million dol-
lars he just got for the substation.
We've been working on water and
sewer and the substation's been left
out, even though it's the most
important part of our infrastructure.
He was going 100 miles per hour to
get that done in 48 hours. Just the
same, he sits down and solves the
day-to-day problems and makes my
job a lot easier. Sometimes good
deeds don't get noticed. He goes
the extra mile."
Finance Director James Brad-
dock chimed in. "This year's bud-
get was the toughest one of the
seven I've done. He has been
elbow-to-elbow with me on it, let-
ting me vent and discuss it. There's
a lot of wisdom between those
shoulders and he imparted some of
that wisdom to me."
Director of Development Olivia
Minshew, the newest hire, said,
"Ditto. He does a very good job. He
put his confidence in me, though I
am the youngest. He's there behind
me."
City Clerk Crissy Abbott was


BACK TO SCHOOL!
Seems like just yesterday I sat down to write a column that began with
the words, "School's out!"
Well, if that was yesterday, this is tomorrow and school is in.
Teachers started back on Monday of this week, and students will begin
this coming Monday, Aug. 20.
I believe the young ones in Hardee County are eager to return to school
this year, not just to see their friends, but to learn and grow and graduate.
A few days ago I was in Wal-Mart and cut through the school-supplies
aisle. Bad mistake. Twice before I got from one end of the aisle to the other
I was almost run down like a dog by parents pushing buggies piled high
with school supplies and small children.
Narrowly escaping with my life, I took a sharp right into the next aisle
and shifted into second gear when a booming voice stopped me.
"Mr. Ballard! Mr. Ballard!"
I hit the brakes and turned to look at a young man who had been a reg-
ular in my ACE room last year, and the year before that, and the year before
that. ACE stands for Alternate Classroom Environment. It used to be called
ISS, In-School Suspension.
"Well, hello, Barney," I said. (Barney is not the boy's real name.)
"How was your summer?".
Barney grinned big and his whole body seemed to quiver with nervous
energy as if a mild electric charge were surging through his veins. He
grabbed his cap brim and snatched it around toward his other ear. He did a
little dance and almost fell backwards into a baby bottle display.
"It's beeri great," he said, commencing to dance again. "Got me three
hew girlfriends!"
"Lucky girls."
"Man, they got to wait in line for me!"
"I'll be seeing you soon, Barn," I said.
"Hey, that's what I was gone tell you. You ain't gone be seeing me this
year, not in ACE you ain't."
"You gonna stay out of trouble?"
"Got to, man. I got to graduate, and I ain't gone do it if I stay in ACE
as much as I been doing."
"I'm glad to hear you've turned over a new leaf, Barn," I said. "It's
never too late to change. See ya soon but not in ACE."
Barney sprang about a foot into the air and let out a whoop as if some-
one had stuck him with a cattle prod. When he landed he slapped a little
boy, whom I knew to be his brother, on the back of the head, almost knock-
ing him down. The child cut loose a blood-curdling scream and dashed
down the aisle wailing.
"Mama! Mama!"
As Barney took off after him, I hurried toward the front of the store.
I'd forgotten what I'd come for.
As I went out the door, a girl I know who has never been in trouble in
school in her life, was coming in.
"Hey, Mr. B.," she said.
"How're you, Jill?" (Not her real name.)
"Fine."
"Anxious to get back to school?"
"Sure am."
"Me, too," I said.
Walking to my car, I stepped in a big gob of bubble gum.
Where did the summer go'?

brief. "They said everything I need-
ed to say. I work with him every
day."
Commission Chairman/Mayor
David Royal commented," When
you go to other city commissions
and see what goes on, we have the
jewel here in working together. I
see how not many cities are pre-
pared for the future, yet he's helped
us set the groundwork for it."
It came back around to Lambert.
"When we changed to the city man-
ager form of governor, we knew it
meant having a leader." Lambert
quoted from Calvin Coolidge that
nothing gets done by talent as by
persistence and used that to
describe Giroux. "We have a leader.
Thank you for what you're doing."
Giroux, a bit red-faced, buf smil-
ing, replied," Thank you for all the
high praise and keeping me out of
mischief. All these efforts would
not have borne fruit without the


support of the commission."
In other action, the Commission:
heard a report from new
Chamber of Commerce director
Casey Prescott.
Upcoming events include a
Foreign Trade delegation visit on
Sept. 25-26, annual golf fundraiser
Oct. 29, annual meeting and dinner
Nov. 5 and the Christmas Parade on
Dec. 1.
The Centennial celebration will
be Oct. 13 from 4 to 10 p.m. and
city leaders are asked to wear peri-
od clothing at the carnival and pose
with the Teddy Roosevelt imper-
sonator. Main Street will be closed
from U.S. 17 southbound to Eighth
Avenue and from Orange to
Palmetto streets on Seventh
Avenue.

Bowling Green will celebrate its first annual Harrington, Liston and
Lunsford Labor Day extravaganza on Monday, Sept. 3, beginning at 11
a.m. at the park on Dixiana Ave.
There will be food, music and games for a fun-filled day. Donations
will be appreciated. For information call Leonard McGill at 863-445-0760
or Michelle Brown at 863-375-2562.
John Lee is organizing a basketball tournament. James. Carpenter is
organizing a youth 100-yard dash.

In 2006 Winter Haven High School adopted a stricter dress code to
begin the school year.
Students caught violating the dress code were sent to Room 10 to
spend the rest of the day with nothing to do.
On the first day of school there were-442 dress code violations and 40
on the second day. By Sept. 13 there were no violations of the code and no
one had to spend the day in Room 10, reported the Lakeland Ledger on
Sept. 26, 2006.
The new dress code called for all shirts to be tucked in, pants worn at
the waist with belts, and all skirts and shorts to fall to knee length, wrote
Winter Haven High School students Ashlyn Cobb and Brittany Modglin.

Local barber Debra Perry writes this thank-you on behalf of the Angels
Softball team: "The Dixie Youth Angels (9-10 years) girls softball team got
a chance to go to Sneads, Fla., to represent our district in the playoffs. Once
again, Hardee County citizens helped in a time of need.
"We had a very short time to earn some money, but with your help
through our bake sales, rib and ribeye roast sales, and through donations we
were able to help the girls and their families and our coaches with some of
the expenses. Unfortunately we did not win enough games to represent our
state, but next year we will try again.
"Hardee County supports our young people in so many ways, and we
want you to know we thank you so very much."

Ron Luke has retired after 14 years with the Wauchula Police
Department and 12 1/2 years with the Hardee County Sheriff's Office.
He wrote a lot of traffic tickets along West Main Street in Wauchula in
recent years, trying to slow down speeders in school zones. He wrote sev-
eral thousand speeding tickets, including 33 in one day.
The late insurance agent Walter Bailey once told Luke he "has saved
more lives than all the cops put together in Hardee County. People came
into my office and said Ron Luke slowed me down and probably saved my
life."
Ron looks young for 66 and is enjoying his retirement in Hardee
County.

Schroeders Homes in Venice is building four homes in southwest
Florida that are supposed to be "zero energy," using solar power. The
homes at times may need to use electrical energy and at other times can
send excess solar energy back into the grid, wrote Steven Smith in a recent
issue of the DeSoto Sun.
There have been other "zero energy" homes built in recent years in
California, Arizona and New Mexico.
There used to be hundreds of homes in Hardee County that did not use
electrical energy. They could be built again rather easily. Use big windows.
Use palm fronds for fans. Use kerosene lamps and candles. Use pitcher

Congratulations go to Barry Bonds for breaking Hank Aaron's home-

There is graffiti on the Peace River bridge on County Line Road in
Bowling Green. This is ugly and detestable.
There is graffiti on the inside of the handball court at the First United
Methodist Church in Bowling Green. Obscene. These need to be painted
over, and the guilty people need to find something more constructive to do.
There can be strong penalties for defacing public, private or church
property.
Graffiti is repulsive to innocent people to see it.
The Wauchula Police Department recently.covered over 40 instances
of graffiti in Hardee County with paint, including the church-owned hand-
ball court in Bowling Green. Within a week more graffiti was sprayed on
the handball court.

The Lakeland Ledger on July 30 had a nice front page article and pic-
tures of Bruce Durrance, a fifth generation citrus grower from Bowling
Green.
Writer Kevin Bouffard said Florida orange growers received the high-
est farm prices in history this past season $7.35 per box for early and
mid-season fruit and $11.21 a box for Valencias. These were on-tree prices
paid by processors on average.
Statewide the Florida orange crop brought in $1.23 billion, the most in
18 years. The 2006-07 orange crop was 129 million boxes. Some years in
the past have exceeded 225 million boxes.
Bouffard wrote that 15 growers own about 40 percent of Florida's
600,000 acres of orange groves.
Durrance said orange prices were even more profitable for two years
following major freezes in the mid-1980s. Adjusted for inflation into
today's dollars, the Ledger reported prices for the 1987-88 season was
$11.87 for earlies and mids and $15.42 per 90-pound box for Valencias.
A disturbing rend for Florida growers is that per capital consumption of
orange juice in the U.S. has declined five of the past six years dropping
from 5.1 gallons per person in 2001-02 to 3.9 gallons a person in 2006-07.
J.A. Clark of Wauchula is president of Florida Citrus Mutual, and Ben
Albritton of Wauchula is chairman of the Florida Citrus Commission.
Clark said Tuesday locally there appears more oranges this year than
last but they are smaller. An estimate for the 2007-08 Florida crop has not
yet been made.

The Hardee County Fair is scheduled Feb. 19-24 and Florida State Fair

Health Department


Warns Swimmers


The Hardee County Health De-
partment is warning people to take
precautions while swimming in
freshwater lakes and ponds due to
the threat posed by the amoeba
Naegleria fowleri.
There is an increased risk of
infection by this organism in all
freshwater areas in Florida, espe-
cially during summer months when
the water temperature exceeds 80
degrees Fahrenheit,.
It is important to take precautions
while swimming in freshwater
lakes and ponds. Properly cleaned,
maintained and chlorinated pools
do not pose a risk for this infection.
The following precautions are
advised to decrease the possibility
of infection:
1.) Wear nose clips or hold
your nose shut when swim-
ming, jumping or diving in
any fresh water.
2.) Do not swim, jump or
dive in warm, stagnant fresh
water, such as ponds, storm
water and retention areas.


3.) Seek medical treatment
if symptoms develop or
infection is suspected.
Naegleriafowleri is a microscop-
ic amoeba most commonly found
in the upper layer of sediment in
the bottom of lakes and ponds with
mud floors.
The infection occurs when the
amoeba enters the body through the
nose and travels to the brain and
spinal cord while the person is
swimming underwater or diving.
The disease progresses rapidly,
usually resulting in death within
three to seven days. Symptoms
include headache, fever, nausea and
vomiting, stiff neck, confusion,
lack of attention to people and sur-
roundings, loss of balance and bod-
ily control, seizures and hallucina-
.tions.
This infection cannot be spread
from person to person.
For more information, contact
the Hardee County Health De-
partment at 773-4161.

Florida's Unclaimed Property

Auction Raises Record Funds


Florida Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink announced the Depart-
ment of Financial Services, Bureau
of Unclaimed Property (Bureau)
broke previous unclaimed property
auction records at the Aug. 4 auc-
tion in Orlando, raising more
money than previous auctions and
breaking last year's attendance
record.
"I am thankful to the Floridians
who bid on the wonderful items up
for auction and the members of our
Bureau who worked so hard to
make this event a success," said
CFO Sink, who oversees the
bureau. "Not only did we raise a
record-breaking $800,000 for
Florida school children, we also
raised awareness about the
Bureau's mission of reuniting
Floridians with their unclaimed
property."
During Saturday's auction, the
bureau raised over $817,000 for the
State School Trust Fund from the
selling of 534 lots, or groups, of
items. The top selling item was a
3.3 ct. pear-shaped. diamond that
sold for $22,000, $12,500 over the
reserve price. The highest-per-
centage performing lot contained a
Royal belt buckle and spurs
believed to be from the last
Empress of France, Empress
Eugenie, the wife of Napoleon III.
It sold for $5,000, compared to the
reserve price of $400.
Among the other top selling
items at Saturday's auction were
autographed Hank Aaron and Don
Larsen baseballs that sold for $450,
an un-circulated 1896 $1 silver cer-
tificate that sold for $3,100, a 1934
$500 bill that sold for $2,800, a five
ct. blue-green diamond that sold for
$14,000, and a 17 ct. natural sap-
phire ring that sold for $10,700.
The auction had approximately 450
registered bidders a record num-
ber -'with bidders from 15 states
and one from the United Kingdom.
The public interest in the auction
also led thousands of Floridians to
the Unclaimed Property Web site,
www.fltreasurehunt.org, to see if
the state was holding their assets.
While on a typical day, the
Bureau's Web site receives approx-
imately 4,000 visitors, more than
48,800 Floridians visited the site
the day before the auction (August
3, 2007). In the .first four days of
August,.the Bureau received claims
from approximately 30,000 Florid-,
ians for over $13 million ini
unclaimed property.
Floridians are encouraged to
search not only for their own
names, but also for the names of


their family members and ances-
tors. Many of the accounts held by
the state are in the name of
deceased relatives, and it can be',
difficult for the state to locate the
heirs of these accounts.
The Bureau receives items that
have been abandoned in safe
deposit boxes for at least three
years and spends up to two years
searching for the rightful owners or
heirs. The bureau has had tremen-
dous success in finding owners. In
the past year alone, the bureau
returned a record 255,000 accounts
valued at more than $171 million. ',
But when owners or heirs cannot be
found, the items are auctioned.'.
While the proceeds from the auc-
tioned items are transferred to the",
state's Public School Trust Fund,
the money is held in the original"
owners' name and can be claimed'
for free at any time.
Since the program's inception 46
years ago, the bureau has success---
fully reunited owners with more-
than $1 billion in unclaimed prop-
erty. Over the past five years, the"
program has returned more than
$546 million-- more than half of all
the money returned since the begin-,
ning of the program-- due largely to'
aggressive efforts by the program
to contact owners.
The Bureau is currently holding
7.8 million accounts, mostly from
dormant accounts in financial insti-.
tutions, unclaimed utility deposits,
insurance benefits, premium re-
funds, uncashed checks and trust
accounts, as well as watches, jewel-
ry, coins, stamps and historical
items from abandoned safe deposit,
boxes.
Unclaimed property can be
claimed for free at any time by the
rightful owners or heirs by logging',
on to www.flreasurehunt.org or by
calling the Bureau at 1-88-VALU-
ABLE. Until claimed, the,
unclaimed funds are transferred to
the state's School Trust Fund to.
benefit public schools. Since the
program's inception in 1961, more,.
than $1.5 billion has been trans-
ferred to the fund.
As a statewide elected officer of
the Florida Cabinet, Chief.
Financial Officer Sink oversees the
Department of Financial Services,
a multi-division state agency
responsible for management of:
state funds and unclaimed property,.
assisting. consumers who request
information and help related to
financial: services,. and investigat-
ing financial fraud. Sink also serves--
as the State Fire Marshal.

Few Changes in School Zones


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
There were very few adjustments
to the school attendance zones this
year.
Director of Transportation Dick
Daggett told the School Board last
Thursday that the "minimal
changes will prevent the need for
additional buses and/or drivers."
Most of the 17 pages of the atten-
dance zone book are unchanged.
Zones for elementary school stu-
dents can be affected by student
population at each school, school
choice and new development. This
year's changes are affected by the
new housing developments off U.S.
17 North at the south end of Wau-
chula, and U.S. 17 and Maxwell
Road, almost across from Hilltop
Elementary School and the naming
of Burrus Street for the old Fifth
Avenue when U.S. 17 northbound
lanes were dubbed Fifth Avenue by
the state.
For Zolfo Springs, clarifications
affect students from George
Anderson Road. Those with
addresses 2900 to 3199 will go to
Zolfo Elementary, those from
addresses 2500 to 2899 will go to
Wauchula Elementary.
Wauchula Elementary will also
pick up students on Alton Carlton
Road numbers 100 to 799 who
were going to North Wauchula, and
students from the odd numbered
addresses from 100 to 421, on
North Fifth Avenue (U.S. 17
North), including the new apart-
ment complex.
Wauchula Elementary will also
take students from Fifth Avenue
south numbers 100 to 1199 inclu-
sive and any students on South
Burrus Street (the old Fifth
Avenue).
Going to North Wauchula will be
students from North Burrus
Avenue, and North Fifth Avenue
even numbers from 100 to 421 and
all numbers 505 to 1010.
In other action, the Board:
approved an exception to the
short-term salary schedule for a
retired teacher to return to the high
school to.fill in for a teacher on


extended medical leave.
approved the staff handbook
for Hilltop Elementary School. It
has very few changes, said
Principal Tracey Nix. There were a
few additions of things seen in last
year's book that were needed, she
added.
discussed the consolidated
application for federal funding for a
variety of special education pro-
grams.
approved the annual district
equity update. Sherri Albritton,
who coordinated it, said there are
still some areas on which there
needs to be improvement, but there
is a decrease in gaps in student pop-
ulation and equity in race and gen-
der in student programs, particular-
ly sports.
More girls are still needed to par-
ticipate in sports and an effort is on
to increase it. Girls can participate
in volleyball, basketball, softball
and cross country on the junior
high level and swimming, volley-
ball, cross country, golf, basketball,
weightlifting, soccer, softball, track
and tennis on the high school level.
More minority students are being
encouraged to participate in
advanced placement, dual enroll-
ment and honors courses.
approved the district K-12
reading plan. The about-40 page
plan gives an in-depth report on the
strategies, accountability and pro-
cedures, including reading training,
classroom libraries and literacy
coaches at each school.

PEEK INTO THE FUTURE
What if the anti-God crowd succeeds in driving religion out of the
schools, the military, Congress, even churches? What would America look
like 50 years from now? Here's a peek.
Time magazine interviewed Kanye West, rap artist of the year in 2004
and a nominee for 10 Grammies. "What do you say to people who see a
contradiction between the devoutness of your Grammy nominated hit,
"Jesus Walks" and the profanity and sexual content in the rest of your
album?"
West replied, "Contradiction is part of who everybody is. I am a real
person, and I make mistakes and I laugh and I cry and I smile and I hate and
I love."
In other words, contradiction is not something to be concerned about.
Even lying is normal. Not to worry.
Now listen to Peter Singer from another part of our culture. Singer'
teaches philosophy at Princeton University and is called by the New Yorker,
"the most influential philosopher alive." He's not even interested in the
same-sex marriage question. He's already moved on to the legal infanticide
of children who are ill or who have older siblings in need of body parts.,
"There is no moral problem with that," says Singer.
"Is there anything wrong with a society in which children are bred for,
spare parts on a massive scale?" "No problem" says the soft-spoken Ivy
League professor.
Such thinking is monstrous to most present-day Americans, but part of
our horrified reaction is due to the presence, even in diminished degree, of
the Bible in our land. but what if the Bible's presence were. totally elimi-
nated? Things more horrible than the thinking of West and Singer would
emerge from the darkness.
Whittaker Chambers, a half century ago, wrote, "Man without God is a
beast, and never more beastly than when he is most intelligent about his
beastliness."

f. Museum Musings
S..By Sandy Scott

Cracker Trail Museum Curator



ANTIQUE TOOLS ,
The Midwest Tool Collectors Association is an organization comprised:
of individuals whose purpose is the study, preservation and understanding:
of the early tools, implements and devices used by our ancestors in their
homes, shops, farms and on the seas.
The organization was started by 16 tool collectors in 1968, and today
the membership has grown to about 4,000 individuals located in all 50:
states as well as Canada, Europe and many other countries.
Quite by chance a couple of years ago, our museum was visited by a
member of this organization. He quickly became very interested in the con-
tents of the C.A. Bryant Blacksmith Shop and offered his expertise in help-
ing sort through and identify some of the acquisitions located in the build-
ing.
Philip Baker and Bill Morgan, both directors of the Florida organiza-
tion, kept in contact with former curator Areca Cotton prior to her retire-
ment last October and later with me.
After a few delays, last month Bill came to the museum and spent
Friday and Saturday cleaning and identifying items in an area that he set up
under the covered area next to the Blacksmith Shop.
Two objectives % ere laid out by the collecors for assistance to Cracker.
Trail Museum. First,;"they would clean and identify the -ise of the items'
along with information on the maker when possible and approximate time
it was made. Second, they would assist Cracker Trail Museum in arrang-
ing displays by trade or function. For example, The C.A. Bryant Blacksmith
Shop is home to acquisitions of the blacksmith, carpentry, wheelwright and
automotive trades.
These members of the Midwest Tool Collectors Association give freely
of themselves to large and small museums alike. Philip Baker and other
local members have an ongoing relationship with the George Washington
home at Mt. Vernon and have been assisting with the restoration of the
adjoining buildings.


COURTESY PHOTO .
Tool expert Bill Morgan with two interesting and unusual items
found at the Cracker Trail Museum in Pioneer Park in Zolfo:
Springs.
Several unique items were identified by Bill after he cleaned and oiled
them with a mixture of turpentine and boiled linseed oil. An intricate design
was discovered on a tri-square, and it was identified as late 19th century.
Another was a large plane that was manufactured by the Owasco Tool Co.
of New York. He explained the Owasco Co. used prison labor at the
Auburn Prison for the manufacturing of its tools.
After Bill left, he called and said he had just scratched the surface at
our museum. He further stated that he would let the other tool collector
members know about this project and ask for volunteers to meet at a later
date to complete the work at the museum.
Those volunteers have now been gathered and a group of them will be
working at the Blacksmith Shop on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24-25. This
is a wonderful arrangement for Cracker Trail Museum, and we are very
appreciative to the Midwest Tool Collectors Association for giving of its
time to further assist us in making this asset of the museum even better.
If you are in the neighborhood on that Friday or Saturday, please feel
free to come by and watch these talented individuals at work.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Recent rains during the week of August 6 through August 12 increased
soil moisture in some areas, but others remained very dry. Rainfall events
concentrated in certain counties and ranged from less than an inch in most
counties to over one inch in Hillsborough, Orange, Hernando, Collier, Polk,
and Gadsden. De Soto, Franklin, and Jefferson counties reported over two
inches of rain for the past week. Despite the increase in shower activity, the
extreme high temperatures limited the gains in soil moisture. Temperatures
at all the major stations averaged above normal for the week. Daytime highs
were in the upper 90s while nighttime lows were in the 70s. All counties
reported daytime high temperatures above 93 degrees. Marianna and
Palmdale reported at least one daytime high at 100 and 104 degrees
Fahrenheit, respectively.

VEGETABLES
This week's rainfall delayed some fall vegetable crop preparation in
some central Peninsula localities. In Washington County, snap beans and
some squash were being planted. Okra harvesting remained active in Dade
County.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition was mostly fair. Some locations
were still dry with pastures wilting. Ponds and streams are dry. Hay for live-
stock was reported in short supply in Leon County. There have been some
cattle sold off as the hay supply is short and little hay was harvested until
well into the second half of the growing season. In the northern areas, pas-
ture condition was mostly fair and cattle condition ranged from very poor
to good with most in fair condition. In the central areas, pasture condition
was poor to good. The heat index has been very high and livestock were
nestled under shade. In Sumter County, armyworms have arrived. In the
southwest, pasture condition ranged from poor to excellent with most in fair
condition. Statewide, cattle condition was mostly fair.
CITRUS
This past week was extremely hot in all citrus producing areas. Lake
Alfred had a record high of 98 degrees on Saturday; all other areas were in
the mid to high 90s and some near record highs on one or two days.
Although most areas are below average rainfall for the year, normal sum-
mer rains have eased the severity of water shortages. Total rainfall for the
past week was between two tenths of an inch on the east coast to almost two
inches on the west coast. Caretakers are busy fertilizing, spraying summer
oils, and controlling cover crops. The combination of the heat and dry air
has caused growers to run irrigation on a regular basis. Fruit sizes on early
oranges are slightly larger than golf-ball size and smaller on late oranges.
For the most part, in well-cared-for groves, the fruit looks good and grow-
ers have a positive outlook for the upcoming season.

Be slow to fall into friendship; but when thou art in, continue firm
and constant.

10B The Herald-Advocate, August 16, 2007


Safe Keeping
By Rich Shepard
Emergency Management Director


YEAR 3 A.C.
Aug. 13, 2004. Need I say more? For those of you new to the area, just
ask anyone who lived through that day what it was like.
If you are new to the area, or new to Florida in general and never expe-
rienced the fury of a hurricane, I urge you to make your preparations now.
Don't know what you should be doing to prepare? Contact our office and
we can point you in the right direction.
Two topics are on the menu for this month's missive: long-term recov-
ery and lightning safety.
Long-Term Recovery
Who didn't learn something after Hurricane Charley? You might have
learned that there are some things you won't repeat, Not repeating a mis-
take can often be more valuable than repeating something that was suc-
cessful.
Those lessons weren't lost on planners at the state and federal level,
either. In fact, some of those lessons are being applied at the state's
Logistics Response Center, a new facility opened in Orlando about a month
ago. This facility currently houses:

Lightning Safety
Florida is far and away the lightning capital of ;i,c United States. There
are more lightning strikes recorded in Florida than several other states com-
bined. Here are some facts about lightning that can help give you some per-
spective:
25 million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes occur in the United
States each year.
The air within a lightning strike can reach 50,000 degrees fahrenheit.
Lightning can heat its path five times hotter the surface of the
sun.
One ground lightning stroke can generate h JO million and 1
billion volts of electricity.
More people are killed each year by lightning than tornados.
So what can you do to avoid becoming a lightning victim? Here are
some simple things you can do:
Lightning can strike as far as 10 miles away from any rainfall, so
when a storm approaches, seek shelter immediately.
If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be a potential vic-
tim.
If you are outside, avoid high places (flagpoles, towers, electricity
poles), bleachers, baseball dugouts and open/exposed gazebos.
If you are trapped outside, lie low or crouch down in a ditch if pos-
sible
If you are inside a house or a vehicle, stay there.
It's important to remember there is no "absolute protection" from light-
ning. You best bet is to avoid risky behavior and seek shelter as storms
approach. If you would like to know more about lightning and lightning
safety, visit the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)
at http://www.noaa.gov/lightning.html or the National Severe Storms
Laboratory at http://www.nssl.noaa.gov/.

TIP OF THE MONTH
With kids returning to school on Aug. 20, be on the lookout for young-
sters at bus stops, walking to school and, of course, all those first-time dri-
vers! Remember, managing your emergencies begins with you.

Water Rules Still In Effect


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Severe water shortage restric-
tions continue at least through the
end of September.
As one of the 16 counties in the
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SWFWMD), Hardee
County is included in the recent
notice extending the Modified
Phase II orders for public utilities,
wells, rivers, ponds and lakes
around southwest Florida.
Lawn and landscape watering
remains limited to one time per
week. On a less-than-two-acre
property, watering is pcims u ible
before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. on
your allowable watering day.
These are allowed according to
the person's address. Those with
addresses ending in 0 or 1 may
water on Mondays; 2 and 3 on
Tuesday; 4 and 5 on Wednesdays;
6 and 7 on Thursdays; and those
ending in 8 or 9 or no discernible
address, on Fridays.
Despite occasional thunder-


storms or rain showers, drought
indicators such as groundwater lev-
els and river flows, indicate a con-
tinued water deficit.
By Aug. 7, rainfall recorded at
the University of Florida ag sta-
tion, the Ona Research Center, was
well below the 10-year average of
58.45 inches. It was at 22.65 with
half the rainy season past.
Before the year is out, it could
rival 2000 as the driest record year
on record at the Ona station. That
year there was only 32.02 inches of
rain. The previous low was in 1956
when 36.73 inches of rain was
recorded.
SWFWMD divides its 16 coun-
ties into three distinct areas to
record its aquifer levels and rain-
fall. Aquifers are the underground
layers of rock and sand that hold
the water which supplies more than
80 percent of the area's water sup-
ply.
The north region includes Citrus,
Hernando, Lake, Levy, Marion and
Sumter counties. The central region

is Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas
and Polk counties.
Hardee is in the south district
with Charlotte, DeSoto, Highlands,
Manatee and Sarasota counties.
According to report of Aug. 10,
aquifer levels in this area were the
worst of the three portions of the
SWFWMD areas.
The aquifer level, past the year's
halfway mark, remains 2.54 feet
below the normal range of 0 to
eight feet.
Historic yearly rainfall in the
south region varies from a high of
62.65 inches in the hurricane-dri-
ven year of 2004 to a low of 32.84
in 2000. To date this year, the south
region is drastically low, a total of
1.90 inches so far in August com-
pared to the historic average of 8.02
inches for the first two weeks of
August.
From January to July, the south
region's historic average is 30.15
inches. This year, from January to
July, it has received only 22 inches.
There are other water rules most
residents need to know. Car wash-
ing is limited to once per week.
Fountains and other aesthetic-only
water features may only operate
eight hours per day. Hand watering
is permissible on non-lawn land-
scape areas, such as flower beds.
The average Floridian uses about
124 gallons of water a day, with up
to 50 percent of it used for outdoor
water use. The extended water
restrictions hope to make signifi-
cant inroads into the non-household
amounts.
In addition, residents are urged to
become conservation wise. For
instance, a leaky faucet can waste
of over 2,000 gallons a year (and
increase the water and sewer bills,
such the sewer bill is a percentage
of water use). A leaking toilet can
waste 200 gallons of water a day,
more than one person's average


use.
Installing water-saving appli-
ances and fixtures can save thou-
sands of gallons of water. A quick
shower instead of a bath can save
20 gallons of water. Don't let water
run when you are brushing your

A ,newspaper was supposed to
carry the headline: "Battle-Scarred
Veter#R- Gone To Rest." But it
came out: "Battle-Scared Veteran
Gone To Rest."
The mistake was discovered
and a change was made for the
afternoon edition. But it read:
"Battle-Scarred Veteran Gone To
Roast."
I don't know if he went to rest or
to roast, but there's a heaven to
gain and a hell to shun.
God doesn't force anyone to live
in heaven, if they don't want to. And
He doesn't send anyone to hell.
People choose it.
God has done everything in His
power to keep you from it. He put
His Son on the cross.
Why don't you choose His Son
and heaven today?


People who are sailboat buffs look down their noses at
powerboats. Conversely, those who pirefer powerboats think
there is too little action in the sport of sailing. It's a matter of
personal preference.
Fortunately, there is enough water in the world to permit both
kinds of boating. There is enough of everything on this earth to
enable us to live in dignity while doing personally what we like
best, if we use our resources carefully antd remember to consider
our fellow man.
Personal preferences...consideration. These two things apply
to boating. They also apply to choice of a mate. where to live, kind
of occupation, and where and how to worship. We have freedom of
choice, we just have to use it! Choose to worship this week.

Letter To The Editor

Parent Supports New

Junior High Dress Code


Dear Editor:
The past two weeks, there have
been letters published complaining
about the new Junior High dress
code. I have two boys in elemen-
tary school and one in high school,
and I was so disappointed that the
dress code is only for Junior High.
I am all for a dress code! I can't
wait until next year, when my son
will be in Junior High. I wish the
entire district would adopt this
dress code.
It is most certainly cheaper, as
jeans and solid polos can be
washed and worn the next day, and
no one would ever notice. I also
don't consider school shopping a
substitute for a vacation. It's more
. like torture to me (as well as my
kids). Too many of today's youth,
as well as their parents, are disre-
spectful of authority, and this is the
result.
School is a place for our children


to learn and to prepare for life in the
real world. I do not know of many
businesses that do not have dress
codes for their employees, and I
certainly do not know of any that
allow your undergarments to show,
or wear clothing that is ill-fitting or
with vulgar phrases printed on
them.
If our children are taught to
"dress for success," as this code is
in place to do, rather than worry
about what the next person is wear-
ing or being embarrassed that they
don't have the name brand clothing
that everyone else seems to be
wearing, perhaps they will be better
educated and more highly equipped
to get the job of their dreams as
adults.

Sincerely,
Jean Norris

Florida Ag In The Classroom

To Fund 21 Volunteer Grants


Agriculture field trip programs,
nutritional programs with emphas-
es on Florida commodities and
aquaculture curriculum distribution
are just a few of the projects
Florida Agriculture in the Class-
room Inc. approved for funding as
part of its 2007 Volunteer Grants
program.
The non-profit association based
in Gainesville approved 21 grant
projects around the state, many of
them to be carried out by Univer-
sity of Florida/IFAS Extension.and
4-H programs, county Farm
Bureaus, local fair organizations,
among other non-profit organiza-
tions. It will spend more than
$27,000, and project organizers
estimate they will reach nearly
15,000 students statewide.
"We are proud to fund projects
Florida agriculture industry volun-
teers and others carry out to edu-
cate Florida students and teachers
about the importance of our indus-
try," said Cara Martin, chairman of
Florida Ag in the Classroom and


assistant director of government
and community affairs for Florida
Farm Bureau.
"Without this grassroots network
of volunteers, we wouldn't be able
to reach nearly as many students
and teachers around the state,"
Martin said.
Florida Ag in the Classroom uses
proceeds from the sale of the agri-
culture specialty license plate, or
the Ag Tag, to fund its teacher and
volunteer grants programs, among
other Florida Ag in the Classroom
programs.
The 2007 Volunteer Grant pro-
jects include:
"Gardening for Orphaned
Animal Life" Sawgrass Nature
Center & Wildlife Hospital in Coral
Springs will conduct a project in
which students plant, feed, monitor
and harvest seasonal vegetables
using hydroponics growing sys-
tems and raised bed planting.

decides who will receive the covet-
ed permits.
Demand for these hunts is typi-
cally greater than the number of
available permits, but hunters can
increase their chances of being
: selected by submitting as many $5
nonrefundable applications as they
like. Successful applicants pay a
permit fee of $50 to $175, depend-


ing on the special-opportunity hunt
area selected.
Participation rules limit out-of-
state hunters to one permit per hunt.
The FWC created special-oppor-

sportsmen looking to take an
Osceola, the "crown jewel" of the
turkey hunters' Grand Slam. The
FWC designs special-opportunity
turkey hunts to take place on large
tracts of land, with great habitat,
healthy turkey populations and
with a limited number of hunters.
The Osceola is a highly prized
subspecies of wild turkey, found
only in peninsular Florida south of
and including Dixie, Gilchrist,
Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay
and Duval counties. All hunts take
place within the Osceola turkey's
range.

Attitudes On Ag
By Bill Hodge
Retired Farmer & Rancher

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the 2007 Farm Bill for five
years on July 27. The American Farm Bureau endorsed the bill and said it
indicates strong support for continuing a basic level of public investment to
ensure a secure and reliable domestic food supply for American consumers.
The largest chunk of funding is $190 billion for nutrition programs,
$42 billion for conservation programs and $24 billion for other programs.
The total bill is $286 billion over five years.
The bill reduces farm payments one percent, increases conservation 11
percent and increases nutrition programs three percent. The largest increase
is in rural development programs by 31 percent.
The new Farm Bill is $20 billion less than the previous bill. It also
includes $1.6 billion in new funding for speciality-crop research, conserva-
tion, pest and disease programs and nutrition.
There is much debate in Congress on House Bill 2421. A group of sen-
ators and some House representatives have made a proposal to remove the
words "navigable waters" from the Clean Water Act, and replace those
words, with "waters of the U.S." This would place regulation and control
of all waters in the United States, including farm ponds, roadside ditches
and every conceivable "water," under government regulation. Write or call
your representatives in Washington and tell them to vote against this bill.
Nearly every wet area on your ranch or farm could become regulated.
One of my favorite magazines is "Country." It has a wealth of good
information and farm stories you would enjoy. The August/September issue
features an outstanding article on one of Hardee County's farm families, the

Wilbur and Susan Robertson family of Sweetwater.
It takes you through a week of work by all family members. The week
is May 21, during the height of watermelon season. It makes me proud to
know people like the Robertsons here in Hardee County.
It is alarming to hear. day as I write this column that Britain has found
a second case of BSE in a cattle herd in their country. We cannot have too
many safeguards here to try and prevent that occurring in a U.S. herd. Our
Asian beef markets are somewhat skeptical of the safety of our beef as it is.
We are still working to get Korea to open its markets from an incident two
years ago.
The Florida Division of Forestry began July 30 to re-offer the Southern
Pine Beetle cost-sharing program to eligible non-industrial private forest
landowners. The program offers up to 50 percent cost reimbursement for
pre-commercial thinning and prescribed burning treatments, and a $50 per
acre incentive for landowners who conduct a first pulpwood thinning.
Visit your local Florida Division of Forestry for more information.
Some years ago Florida was the national joke over the pregnant sow
issue that was voted on as a constitutional amendment. Now we have caged
layers at issue. Florida Farm Bureau reports that one or more groups whose
ultimate goals is the elimination of animal agricultural, are attempting to
get city and county governments to pass ordinances and resolutions
requesting people to refrain from eating eggs produced by caged layers.
At least two Florida cities, Winter Springs and New Port Richey (with
no commercial layer operations) have adopted such resolutions. If you hear
of any proposals such as these, please inform the Hardee County Farm
Bureau or me. Where do these people in Florida with their anti-agriculture
mentality come from? Must be run out of other states to here!
Florida Farm Bureau is sponsoring a Brazil Study Tour Jan. 20-28,
2008. Registration is limited to the first 30 paid participants. The tour will
meet with policy makers, ranchers and farmers in diverse fields of agricul-
tural production, much of which mirrors Florida's vegetables, citrus, live-
stock production, horticulture, etc. There will be a time to do some sight7
seeing and build new friendships.
Tour stops will include: major sugar and ethanol plants, an animal dis-
ease control facility, livestock production, citrus groves, two member co-
ops, and a hydroelectric plant. A $500 deposit is required to hold a reserva-
tion. Cost of the tour is $3,800 double occupancy, $4,400 single occupan-
cy. You must be paid in full by Sept. 15. If you want more information, call
me or call Frankie Hall at (353) 374-1542.
Sept. 17 will be our annual Hardee County Farm Bureau meeting and
membership drive. If you are a member, you will receive a notice by mail.
If you are not a member, come out and join us anyway and find out all the
benefits of being a member and join. There will be a good meal, fellowship,
prizes and a good program.
October will bring the annual Florida Farm Bureau convention in
Daytona Beach. Be sure to consider going. It's always interesting and infor-
mative. Contact the local Hardee County Farm Bureau office for details.
Congratulations to Brittany Hines, who won the Hardee County Farm
Bureau speech contest with a talk on "Global Agriculture." In preparation
for the district Farm Bureau competition, she has given her speech to sev-
eral local civic organizations and will represent us well in the district. We
wish you the best, Brittany.

Well, there's only a few more days of freedom before kids head to the
classrooms on Monday.
Many of the scholar/athletes have been busy already. The two weeks of
band camp are over. Volleyball and swimming have been in practice and
getting under way more and more.
For football fans, it's not too early to get your season or reserve section
tickets from Coach Kapusta at the Adult Education Center. Call him at 773-
3173. He also has football caps available and they are also at Hanchey's
Carpets on East Main Street.
New Head Coach Tim Price and his staff are coming off a successful
week of football camp over in Lake Placid. The three-a-days got everyone
lots of playing time and a good look-see. There were 39 out, including three
freshmen the coaches wanted to put to the test.
This week will be a relatively easy week of practices at 3:30 each day,
in preparation for the after-school schedule which starts next week. They
will culminate the week with a trip to Bartow on Saturday to participate in
a round robin with seven other teams. Each team will get 10 offensive and
10 defensive plays against each of their opponents. Hardee will probably be
set against Winter Haven and Lake Wales.
The fall schedule gets under way with next Friday's Fall Classic. This
year, the Wildcats will go to Auburndale to take on the Bloodhounds. The
regular season will begin on Aug. 31 with a visit from North Fort Myers,
followed by another home game on Sept. 7 against longtime rival Fort
Meade.
JV football, under head coach Rod Smith, also gets going shortly,
opening at home on Aug. 30 against Avon Park.
Swimming and volleyball also have early starts. Both begin on Aug.
28, swimming at Port Charlotte and volleyball at DeSoto. Both are at home
on Aug. 30, the swimmers hosting both Ridge Community and Santa Fe,
and the volleyball girls greeting Avon Park.
Boys and girls golf, and boys and girls cross country will be on the
greens and the field shortly as well, and it won't be long before junior high
softball and football follow suit.
Youth football also has an early start, beginning on Aug. 25. We will
print the schedules and rosters of players and cheerleaders as soon as pos-
sible.
The adult softball leagues resumed play this week. The Ladies Church
Softball League had four teams left in the post-season tournament. The men
have a couple of nights to finish their regular season and start a double-
elimination tournament.
Information from community and school athletic events is always welcome.
Please call The Herald-Advocatae (773-3155) or e-mail me at news.heral-
dadvocate @earthlink.net with news for this biweekly column. News will be
included as soon as time and space allows.

Letter To The Editor

Hardee Junior High Dress

Code Is A Great Idea


'Dear Editor:
This is to the response of Mrs.
Guerrero's letter to speak out, that I
am for the dress code, not against
it!
Well, I think it is time for Mr.
,Herron and everyone at the Junior
'High to know that there are people
twho are proud of the new dress
;code. I am a Junior and High
,School alumni, and I would like to
.say that this is %ery brave arid great"
'thing that Mr. Herron is helping
-control the dress code in the school.
I can see from past letters that
people care more about the clothes:
issue than anything else. Everyone
'.was not happy when schools
?enforced nametags, however we
got used to the idea.
My son is still a toddler, but
knowing these new rules I would
;have no problem having my child
go to school with this dress code. It
I should be clear that this is not "uni-
' form dress code."
I lived in Louisville, Ky., for four
years, and the dress codes for a
school with uniforms were hasher.
The children had to wear navy blue
and red Polos with khakis, there
were no T-shirts, no logos, no
denim.
Mr. Herron and the rest of the
staff for HJH, this is a good, no,
this is a great idea! You should
know that not everyone is against


it. Maybe you should have just
made it a total uniform school
because you have been more than
lenient allowing jeans and shorts.
Everywhere I have worked for has
had a dressing code. Sports teams,
band, and teachers have a dress
code.
As the HJH website states, "We
ask the cooperation of parents with
our 'Dress for Success' attire plans..,
"It'is our desire to creat&'An environ-
ment that will serve the best inter-
ests of all students at the school."
Thank you, Mru Herron, for prov-
ing, to me and my family, that not
only do you care about my child's
education, but you also care about
his well-being.
I hope that you get the "coopera-
tion of parents" so that they can be
an example to their children to be
cooperative for you and your staff,

Thank you HJH,

school brings mixed emotions to
parents and children alike, but little

issue of The Herald-Advocate)
seems sure of his reaction to the sit-
uation.
Mom Alma Mendoza comforts
her son as he joins kindergarten at
Bowling Green Elementary School
early Monday morning. He was one
of 4,195 youngsters in class that
day, down six percent from last
year, a drop felt mostly at sec-
ondary school levels.

Public Hearing On Zoo Tuesday:
Critics and supporters of Pioneer
Park and its animal refuge are
urged to come to a meeting Tues-
day evening. As part of its applica-
tion for an up-to-$ 100,000 grant for
park improvements, a public hear-
ing is being held.
"This is the perfect opportunity
for people to suggest what they
would like to see and how it should
be developed," said County Man-
ager Gary Oden. The long-range
plan will be to create a conserva-
tion wetland type of habitat.

Leo Davis Is Proud Of His
Labrador Retriever: Everyone who

Davis is a breeder of pointing
Labrador Retrievers.
Davis is one of the six breeders
throughout the U.S. who can breed
labs that not only fetch, but also
point game. Davis has had many
successes with his champion point-
ing lab, Victor XII. He has placed
first in every field trial he has par-
ticipated in, except for one where
he placed second.

Letter To The Editor

Over-Taxation Could Threaten

Future Of Hardee Agriculture


Dear Editor:
During the fire assessment dis-
cussion at the commission meeting
on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2007, the
accusation was made that taking
more money of ad valorem taxes to
fund fire protection would some-
how result in agriculture being sub-
sidized.
During the meeting, I also refer-
enced a Florida Farm Bureau study
that sharply refutes that contention
and stands for the proposition that
ad valorem taxes on agricultural
land raise revenue in excess of the
cost local government expends pro-
viding services to that agricultural
property.
Subsequently, I contacted Mr.
Frankie Hall at Florida Farm
Bureau and requested a copy of that
study. The study was actually con-
ducted for Hillsborough County
titled "The Contribution of Agri-
business to Hillsborough County,
Florida." The study was originally
done in 1996, and updated again in
2005.
The study was done by
Stewardship America Inc. and
CH2M HILL, Inc. I have read the
study and feel extremely confident
that a similar study for Hardee
County would show similar find-
ings.
The bottom line is that for every
$1 in county revenue generated by
residential property, the county
spent $1.27 on residential property.
In contrast, for every $1 in revenue
generated by the county on agricul-
tural land, the county spent only 25
cents.
The study also sets forth proper-
ty categories for commercials,
industrial and vacant property, all
of which also subsidize residential
property. Enclosed are copies of the


cover page and page 5 of the study
setting forth this basic proposition.
The entire study is well over 100
pages long and can be found on line
at http://www.hillsboroughcoun-
ty.org/econdev/resources/publica-
tions/agriculture/2005economicim-
pactstudy.pdf.
In closing, I acknowledge and
appreciate the budgetary challenges
facing all local governments in
Florida in today's fiscal environ-
ment. However, I would also appre-
ciate those issues being resolved
based on facts rather than on
rhetoric.
Agriculture has been and
presently is the backbone of Hardee
County's economy. Whether or not
agriculture continues to be a viable
factor in Hardee County's economy
in the future may well depend on
whether or not agriculture is treated
equitably in the county's tax and
fee structure.
Placing a fire assessment on
agricultural land on a per acre
basis, particularly when the county
has very limited physical resources
to actually fight large fires, simply
means that agricultural land will
subsidize others in the county to a
greater extent than is presently the
case. If you are going to do that, at
least be up front and admit it.

Respectfully yours,
Joe Wright, President
V & W Farms Inc.
Avon Park
Editors Note: A copy of this letter
was also sent to the Hardee County
conmnissioners, the county manag-

Bureau. Below is part of the 2005

County.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
How terrible it will be for people
who call good things bad and
bad things good, who *think
darkness is light .and light is
darkness, who think sour is
sweet and sweet is sour! How
terrible it will be for people who
think they are wise, and believe
they are clever!

sorrow means, for. they will be

God's loyal love couldn't have
run out; His merciful love could-
n't have dried up. They're creat-

great Your faithfulness (to us)!
I'm sticking with God; I'll say it
over and over He's all I've got
left.
Lamentations 3:23-24 (ME)

SUNDAY
So now, since we have been
made right in God's sight by
faith in His promises, we can
have real peace with Him

our Lord has done for us.

MONDAY
God has made everything beau-
tiful in its time. He has also set

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well Football Fans, it's time for the SEC preview. Now it's time to look
at the best conference in college football. Another outstanding year with
more intense rivalry in 2007 is what is in store for fans this year. I can see
8 of thel2 SEC teams having winning records at season's end if they dom-
inate the out-of-conference schedule. The question is whether the SEC will
have a team in the National Championship game again this year. History
has proven the SEC worthy.
The SEC races in the East and West could turn out to be three-way
races down to the wire. Tennessee, Florida and Georgia should control the
SEC East but Spurrier may throw a monkey wrench into conventional
thinking. The SEC West has LSU despite the loss of DeMarcus Russell, in
the driver's seat. Auburn will be pushed by Alabama with both behind the
LSU Tigers. The others in both divisions will compete for the last bowl
slots after the big powers.
The SEC will welcome a new head coach at Alabama as Nick Saban
takes the job rejected by Rich Rodriguez of West Virginia. Those two
.coaches grew up next door to each other back in West Virginia.

Now let's look at the SEC races:
SEC
1. Florida The Gators lost 8 on defense but UF doesn't rebuild, they
reload. Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin will lead the prolific Gator Offense to
:new heights in 2007. UF will lose at LSU but will rebound to beat LSU in
the SEC Title Game in Atlanta. A 12-1 record could get the defending
National Champs back into the big game.
2. Tennessee The Vols will depend on Eril Ainge to continue his
solid play to repeat the success of 2006. A 9-3 regular season looks on the
horizon in Knoxville.
3. Georgia The Dawgs should be improved in many areas in 2007.
,9-3 could be the end result but a game with South Carolina could be the real
test for that 9th win.
4. South Carolina The Old Ball Coach has the Gamecock fans
squawking louder than my pet cockatoo. Ticket demand by USC fans will
,keep many Gator fans in their RVs or at a sports bar instead of inside
,Williams-Brice stadium on Nov. 10. Many experts are leery of a breakout
year for the Gamecocks. 8-4 is the view from here.
5. Kentucky Is it basketball season yet? Not so fast, my friend Rich
Brooks has the Cat Fans thinking fall for a change. 2006 saw a bowl win
!over Clemson included in an 8-5 season. 6-6 could get the Wildcats back to
another bowl somewhere.
6. Vanderbilt The Commodores return 16 starters. Could this be the
;: year? 5-7 would be an improvement.

SEC WEST
1. LSU Les Miles has 14 starters returning. The running game
should be very strong to compliment the passing game. The tough games
'-'(Florida, South Carolina and Auburn) are in Baton Rouge. A possible land-
mine could be at Alabama. LSU could finish 12-0. They will return to
*`Atlanta in December.
2. Auburn Senior QB Brandon Cox will guide the Tigers to a great
.'season in 2007. A final record of 10-2 could set the tone for a National
;,.Championship run in 2008.
3. Alabama Saban is getting the big bucks to revive the Tide.
.,,95,000 came to the Spring Game! 8-4 or 9-3 will begin a turnaround in
".Tuscaloosa.
4. Arkansas The Hogs have Darren McFadden to watch in the
,'Heisman race. After an 8-4 season, he will watch Steve Slaton accept the
,'Heisman trophy in New York. The Hogs will be fun to watch though.
5. Mississippi State -- Coach Croom is looking for improvement in
/2007. 4-8 is the view from here.
6. Ole Miss Rebels coach Ed Orgeron is feeling the heat in Oxford.
'The Rebels must win the out-of-conference games and hope for a break in
*,a couple SEC games to escape a big letdown in 2007.

Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association


DETECTION OF GREENING A WAKEUP CALL
Local growers diligently inspecting their groves for disease have de-
tected the presence of greening in Hardee County. Leaves from suspected
trees sent to diagnostic facilities have confirmed greening truly is the
dreaded disease.
Although detection of the disease in Hardee County is disappointing,.
as it was the only county within our region not to have confirmed cases of
greening until these detections, it was not an unexpected event.
For over a year the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer
Services (FDACS) and the University of Florida Institute of Food &
Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) have been urging growers to take protective
actions in their groves, as it was felt greening, even back then, is wide-
spread throughout Florida.
The incidences of greening currently reported in Hardee County are
located in 36-27-17 and 34-26-12. Hardee growers are doing everything
possible to protect their groves, and known greening-infected trees are
being destroyed. Some growers in these areas are also working together to
complete aerial sprays of their groves to eradicate the vector, the citrus
psyllid.
Although, specific knowledge is lacking, growers who have studied,
traveled and educated themselves on the disease believe success lies in
completing a three-fold program: controlling psyllid, removal of diseased
trees, and use of clean disease-free replacement stock.
While information specific to greening in Florida is being compiled
through experience and research, growers are calling upon all resources to
learn more about greening. Experts from other countries have been called
upon to share their knowledge with our growers in venues such as the annu-
al citrus conference. The upcoming Citrus Expo will also feature Juliano
Ayres from Brazil, who will present to Florida growers his experience with
the disease, providing insight.
A presentation by Dr. Michael Rogers, UF IFAS will help growers bet-
ter understand the life cycle of the psyllid. Better understanding of the psyl-
lid will help growers better control the pest within their groves at a lower
cost. Less psyllid will mean less opportunity of disease spread.
FDACS held a group of informational meetings around the state to
help growers better understand both citrus canker and greening with an
integrated Citrus Health Response Program. The information was format-
ted in a series of video clips, which will be available to growers for employ-
ee education sessions. CDs will be provided to our office shortly for grow-
ers. They will also be available at the upcoming Citrus Expo.
Growers, are expected to provide business plans outlining their activi-
ties to maintain their groves' citrus health. Draft plans are provided to help
growers more easily complete this task, which contain questions to help
growers effectively create a plan optimal for their grove properties and
make needed assignments to employees. The forms can be obtained from
our office or by following the Citrus Health Response Program links at
www.doacs.state.fl.us.
No compliance agreement numbers are required this year for harvest
of processed citrus fruit. Federal fresh-fruit regulations are changing, and if
changed will allow fresh growers to follow suit. Until that change is made,
however, growers who harvest fresh fruit must have their groves inspected
30 days prior to harvest. Contact the Avon Park Citrus Health Response
Program at (863) 298-7777, scheduling your fresh harvest inspection to
insure your fruit is able to be picked on schedule. It is hoped the regulation
will be changed by Oct. 1. We recommend growers do not count on this
date, rather preparing for delays.
There is no better action for growers to take than spending time in the
grove observing tree health. Although greening is hard to detect, growers
can do a better job controlling all pests and diseases by familiarizing them-
selves with changes in tree health. If you suspect greening, send in a sam-
ple. The proper sample protocol and needed submission forms can be
.-obtained from our office or on the World Wide Web at
-wwx.doacs-.siate.tl.us. ust tfollox\ the citrus-gceening links.
Diagnostic results are taking about to \\eeks. An additional diagnos-
tic facility will be created at the IFAS Research & Education Center in
Immokalee with funds provided during the 2007 Florida legislative session.
Please be sure to thank your local state legislators for this much-needed
facility.
I look forward to seeing Hardee County citrus growers at the upcom-
ing Citrus Expo, Aug. 22-23 at the Lee County Civic Center. Peace River
Valley CGA will be in Booth 715. See you there!

At the City of Bowling Green

had a citizen report to us that the
Gasco Convenience Store, 5211
U.S. Highway 17 N., had. recently
displayed a glass pipe (bong) and
other pipes that could be used for
drugs.
We were very concerned, and
after the meeting several commis-
sion members and a resident went
'to the store to see for ourselves and
tell the owner that we didn't feel
that this is something we wanted in
Bowling Green.
The cashier stated the owner
wasn't there and would tell him we
had come to see him.
The next day the owner asked to
meet with me. He explained he had


cocaine and possession of marijua-
na), 120 days on first charge, six
months on second, CTS and con-
current with prison sentence, out-
standing fines and fees placed on
lien.

actions of $10,000 or more were
filed recently in the office of the

Forgiveness is the answer to the
