2nd Grow House Reveals 225 Marijuana Plants


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A hunting violation from a year
ago has led authorities to the dis-
covery of yet another marijuana
grow house in rural Zolfo Springs.
The inter-agency Hardee County
Drug Task Force arrested two peo-
ple last Thursday night following a
tip from officers with the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Jailed were husband and wife
Brandelis Guerrero, 43, and Rosa
Gonzalez, 31, both of 4485 Murphy
Road. Each was charged with traf-
ficking in marijuana, manufactur-
ing of drug equipment, cultivation
of marijuana and tampering with
utilities.
She posted a bond on Friday to
gain her release pending trial. He
posted bond this Monday, accord-
ing to Hardee County Jail records.
Lt.-Rodger Brutus of the Fish &
Wildlife Commission said the

BB-Gun


Injures


Child, 5
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 5-year-old girl escaped serious
injury after being shot with a BB-
gun by a neighborhood boy while
playing outside.
Bowling Green Police Chief
John Scheel said the accidental
shooting occurred late Friday after-
noon at a house on Lynn Street. A
call from the hospital alerted his
department at 4:46 p.m., he said..
Scheel said the little girl and her
older brother were outside their
home when an 8-year-old boy from
the neighborhood came over with a
BB-gun in hand. He tried to show
the gun to the brother, but the
brother told the 8-year-old he
should not have the gun and asked
him to leave.
See BB-GUN 2A


arrests stemmed from a hunting
incident about one year ago. At that
time, he said, he and Ofc. Clint
Thompson arrested a man for tak-
ing deer out of season.
The officers found him while he
was skinning the deer -in his shed.
They also found 150 marijuana
plants growing in that shed. Drug
charges were levied against the
man as well, Brutus said.
New people moved into the.
home, the lieutenant explained, but
the marijuana grow operation,
apparently stayed intact, according
to a tip he received. Brutus passed'
that tip along to the Drug Task
Force.
Armed with that information, the
Drug Task Force obtained a search
warrant for the Murphy Road resi-
dence, executing it at about 7 p.m.
on Thursday, sheriffs Maj. Claude
Harris Jr., a spokesman for the
Drug Task Force, said.

Study: Hardee Getting Healthier County Grannies
County Grappoles


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"Whatever you're doing about health care, you
should bottle it. You are to be congratulated."
Dr. James Studnicki and his associate Dr. John
Fisher expressed amazement at the way Hardee
County has met health challenges since their last visit
to the community in 2001.
Formerly with the University of South Florida, the
duet have moved to the University of North Carolina-
Charlotte College of Health and Human Services,
where Studnicki has filled an endowed chair in health
research. They are doing a study in California and
another in the Delta Region along the Mississippi
River, eight states of 240 counties that border the river
and are among the worst health status in the U.S.
Studnicki presented the information from the 2007
Comprehensive Assessment for Tracking Com-munity
Health in Hardee County last Thursday. Despite having
among the worst demographics in economics, and rela-
tively few health resources, the county has nevertheless
improved its health status.
Since the study presented in 2001 which was based
on 1999 data, Hardee has improved its relationship with
a peer group and state levels. Then, it was 47.3 percent
favorable when compared to the peer group (three
counties of similar population and income) and the
state. Now it is 52.5 percent favorable in comparison


with both other groups.
In contrast, Hardee ranked 34 percent unfavorably to
its peer group and the state in various health issues.
Now, that is 27 percent.
There has been achievement in improving maternal
and child health, maternal and child mortality, infec-
tious diseases, cancer mortality and physical environ-
ment health issues.
Marsha Rau, nursing director for the county health
department, said after the previous assessment, the ad
hoc health committee wrote grants for primary care,
and an active diabetes care program is in its fourth year.
"Thanks to the County Commis-sion, other health
care providers, and the citizens, we are making
progress. It's the beauty of a small county, that you can
make an efficacious change," she added.
Dixie, Holmes and Okeechobee counties were cho-
sen as a peer group for Hardee, the three counties in the
state closest to Hardee in population, and in demo-
graphics of people under 18 or over 64, percent non-
white and percent below the poverty level. Hardee has
one of the highest Hispanic populations of the state,
about one-third of the county, or 9,000.
This year's study gives Hardee a gold star for
improvements in several areas, but also presents some
red flags or challenges to continue to work on. Physical
environment health and sentient events (ones the per-
son can correct) are still unfavorably higher here.

Rural Acreage At Issue


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Deciding to charge landowners
only one-fourth of the full fire
assessment presents a problem.
Hardee County Commissioners
hope to resolve that problem during
a workshop tomorrow (Friday),
beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Room
102, Courthouse Annex I, 412 W.
Orange St., Wauchula.
The commissioners will search
through the tentative 2007-08 bud-
get in hopes of finding $500,000,
the remaining three-fourths of
assessments for rural landowners.
A public hearing on the fire assess-
ment rates is next Thursday, Sept. 6
at 6 p.m. The first public budget
hearing is Sept. 13 at 6 p.m.


"We need direction (from staff)
on how to find it. There's only a
week before the fire assessment
hearings. We need a list of all agen-
cies' which we assist financially
which also received state funding,"
said Commissioner Gordon Norris.
County Manager Lex Albritton
pointed out that state revenue is
down and every state department
has been told to cut its budget 10
percent. "That means less funding
for these programs. We may lose
Department of Transportation fund-
ing for Steve Roberts Special and
College Hill."
In early August, a consultant pre-
sented the commission with its rec-
ommendation of fire assessment

BB-GUN

Continued From 1A
The brother went back inside his
house, the chief said. Shortly after-
ward, however, he heard his little
sister scream.
Scheel said the girl was struck by
a BB-shot to the chin.
The child's mother took her to
Florida Hospital Wauchula, where
she was treated and then released,
the chief said.
"It was a superficial wound,"
Scheel said. "This time, there was a
good outcome. But, parents need to
realize a BB-gun is a weapon, and
how dangerous it can be."
Further, the chief pointed out,
there are laws governing the pos-
session and use of such guns.
Said Scheel, "For any type of
BB-gun or air rifle, you must be 16
years of age or older to possess it.
And if you are under 18, you must
be supervised by an adult at all
times whenever you have it."
Scheel said the laws are in place
for the protection of children.

worst than the peer or state levels.
"But whatever you're doing, you
are getting extraordinary results,"
said Studnicki.
Some statistics appear skewed
because of the small county effect,
one or two cases when extrapolated
per 1,000 to match the peer or state
statistics. Healthy Start programs
have helped lower statistics in lack
of prenatal care or none in the first
trimester. The number with lifelong
effects from birth defects is also
low in the county, two per year, but
appears high in comparison. ,
There has been progress in com-
bating infectious diseases, with the
exception of the sexually transmit-
ted Chlamydia of which there were
74 cases in 2005. That, however,
translates to 270 per 1,000 in com-
parison to the peer and state levels.
In social and mental health,
Hardee remains very high in the
number of domestic violence cases
and those of juvenile delinquency"
Referrals. Suicide; -:called age-
adjusted mortality, is basically a
white phenomenon, with three
cases in the county in 2005. Motor
vehicle age-adjusted mortality. (not
related to alcohol use) is also high-
er in the white population, perhaps
because of the two-lane roads and
younger populations
Cancer challenges remain in
morbidity (number of new cases) of.
cervical cancer, melanoma, pancre-
atic cancer mortality, lung and
prostate cases (high in black per-
sons) and smoking-related mortali-
ty.
Chronic disease challenges are
chronic liver disease and cirrhosis
(especially among black people),
chronic obstructive pulmonary dis-
ease, diabetes mortality and stroke.
The last two cut across all popula-
tion and age groups.
Sentient events, immunizable or
treatable diseases, still cause avoid-
able or preventable hospitaliza-
tions. These could be late stage
breast or cervical cancer (which if
treated earlier could be curable or
treatable) or perforated ulcer
(which should be treated before it
perforates). It could be pneumonia,
viruses and other illnesses for
which one can be immunized.
There are a higher percentage of
people reporting fair or poor health,
higher amount reporting no regular
moderate physical activity, and
increased obesity reports. There are
fewer people who have had a pneu-
monia shot or blood stool test.
Based on the current report, there
will be another community health
improvement process (CHIP) to
involve various segments of the
community in forming a remedial
plan of education and public
awareness to attack some of the
worst problems.
"You have to measure. If you
don't measure it, you can't fix it.
Overall what you have been doing' -
has been successful. It's like a
report card, it says you are doing
well, but riot why. You are to be
congratulated, it is one of the most
positive reports," concluded
Studnicki.

Brutus and Thompson aided in
the raid.
The investigators allegedly dis-
covered "a large-scale marijuana
grow operation" in the southeast
portion of the residence, Det. Sgt.
Eddie Davis said in a report.
There were 225 marijuana plants
growing in pots, Harris charged.
Searchers also found indoor irriga-
tion, heat lamps, timers, ballasts,
reflective sheeting, three air condi-
tioners, electrical wiring and elec-
trical panel boxes, all used to sup-
port the cultivation of the illegal
drug, he said.
Harris said Guerrero and
Gonzalez lived in the home with
their 5-year-old daughter and 12-
year-old son.
He said the key to the deadbolt
lock on the exterior door of the
grow house was found in the cou-
ple's kitchen. A receipt for an air
handler used in the grow house was
located in their bedroom, Harris


rates needed to fund the Fire-
Rescue Department's fire budget.
The upshot was a $136 annual
assessment for residential cate-
gories, and set amounts for com-
mercial, industrial, institutional,
and transient use (hotel/motel).
Suggested rates for vacant and
agricultural land, which make up
24 percent of fire calls, were $1.98
per acre, or any portion of that, 75
percent at $1.47 per acre, 50 per-
cent at 98 cents per acre or 25 per-
cent at 49 cents an acre.
On a split vote, 3-2, commission-
ers approved the 25 percent rate.
Those approving it, commissioners
Norris, Minor Bryant and Dale
Johnson, said since this is the first
time vacant or agricultural land has
been assessed, it shouldn't start at
the maximum.
Commissioners Nick Timmer-
man and Chairman Bobby Ray"
Smith opposed. Timmerman's
motion to keep 100 percent of the
rate failed for lack of a second.
Both he and Smith wondered where
the county would come up with the
half million dollars to pay the
three-quarters of land assessment


added.
Further, Drug Task Force mem-
bers allege they found the power
line feeding the home was spliced
before 'entering the meter. The
spliced power lines fed electricity,
to the grow house, Harris ex-
plained.
Davis added in his report, "This
is a common tactic employed by
marijuana grow house operators to
conceal the amount of. electricity
used arid to avoid incurring a large
electric bill."
Harris said the marijuaneized
by the investigators weighedrin
excess of 25 pounds.
This was the second arrest for a
grow house in as many weeks. Last
week, 76-year-old Julian Felix
Roque was jailed for allegedly
growing marijuana in a barn at 116
Sweetwater Road in rural Zolfo
Springs.
That time, authorities confiscat-
ed 55 marijuana plants.


which won't be billed to the
landowners.
Timmerman wrote a letter to the
public (printed on page 4B), in
which he says the 100 percent
assessment to landowners is the fair.
and legal way to proceed, and fund-
ing $500,000 from other county
revenues will place a heavy toll on
the residential and commercial
property owners. In the meeting, he
also said it would cut county staff
and programs to make up these dol-
lars.
Every property owner, received a
notice recently telling them the
amount of their proposed assess-
ment and the date of the public
hearing.
Although the fire and solid waste
assessments are included in the tax
bills sent to residents in November,
the amounts are set by the commis-
sion aiid questiofis need to be
directed to the county finance
office which handles those matters.
People can contact that office at
Room 204 in Courthouse Annex I

ALCOHOL AND
BREAST CANCER
For. decades, alcohol has been
'linked to breast cancer risk. Yet
;many women wonder just how big a
,risk alcohol actually represents.
'Recently, a major review in the
;"British Journal of Cancer" exam-
ined 53 studies and provided an
,answer: as daily consumption of
:alcohol rises, a woman's risk of
,breast cancer does indeed steadily
:increase.
That doesn't mean, however, that
:an occasional drink is enough to
"push your luck." According to the
:review, a woman who consumes no
,alcohol at all has an 8.8 percent
:chance of developing breast cancer
,before she reaches 80. A woman
.who drinks one alcoholic drink
:daily faces a 9.4 percent chance of
;doing so. Two drinks a day raise the
:odds to 10.1 percent, and four
:drinks a day raise her chances to
:11.6 percent.
These figures are a bit deceptive
because alcohol does not pose equal
.risks for all women. Its effects may
vary with the quality of a woman's
.diet. For example, several studies
:show that women who don't get
:enough folate a B vitamin found
;in dark, leafy greens and other plant
foods that is essential for repair of
,damaged DNA are at greater
risk. This makes sense, because one
of the ways alcohol is believed to
'increase cancer risk is by damaging
our DNA.
Genetic changes can also affect a
.woman's susceptibility to damage
:from alcohol. All of us, for exam-
ple, possess a gene for producing a
:specific enzyme that detoxifies
'potential carcinogens before they
.can damage our DNA. But some of
:us have an abnormal form of this
'gene that doesn't produce the
.enzyme; women with this abnormal
:gene experience nearly double the
yisk of post-menopausal breast can-
cer. And if women possessing this
,genetic variation drink fairly regu-
larly say, an average of 13 alco-
holic drinks per week for 25 years
,or more their risk increases
.seven-fold.
Another kind of mutation in this
gene doesn't raise breast cancer risk
at least, not by itself. But if
women with that trait drink any
amount of alcohol, their risk of
breast cancer becomes more than
twice that of women with the same
trait who don't drink at all. Alcohol
also increases the risk of breast can-
cer much more in women lo pos-
sess still another kind of genetic
variation that affects enzymes that
metabolize alcohol.
Unfortunately, women don't
,know which form of these various
genes they have. That's why it's
best to exercise caution. A drink
now and then, or even daily, is not
enough to double or triple a
woman's risk of breast cancer.
Nevertheless, the risk does increase
especially in amounts beyond
one drink a day.
It is also important to note that
alcohol may have a greater impact
when consumed at younger ages.
Between puberty and a woman's
first pregnancy, breast cells are
more susceptible to damage from
cancer-causing agents.
And, keep in mind, that limiting
or avoiding alcohol is just one way
a woman can reduce her breast can-
cer risk. Eating more vegetables,
fruits, whole grains and beans is
,another. Diets too low in these
Foods, according to a major report
:from the American Institute for
:Cancer Research, are responsible
'for at least as many breast cancers
,as alcohol. Being overweight after
,menopause raises risk as much as
drinking three to four drinks a day,
;and being obese represents an even
greater risk. One new study demon-
strates that as little as two hours a


week of brisk walking can actually
protect as much as alcohol dam-
ages.

A JAPANESE SALAD
DRESSING
At Japanese restaurants, one
thing to look forward to is the small
mixed salad served before the meal.
In particular, enjoy the orange-col-
ored dressing on top of this salad,
because it is intriguingly familiar
yet deliciously exotic. Although
reminiscent of an old-fashioned,
creamy French dressing (which was
an American invention, by the
way), the taste is unmistakably
Asian.,
It seems, however, that this salad
and its carrot-based dressing are
being served less frequently these
days. Elizabeth Andoh, an
American living in Japan who is an
expert on their food and culture, say
the same thing is happening there.
She said that Western-style cooking
remains popular in Japan, and
sauces of this general type are still
served regularly, but this particular
salad dressing is not used as often
as it once was.
Cooking in Japan is very much
influenced by food fashions and
fads, she said. This dressing, for
example, was created back in the
1970s. It is an example of "yoshoku
ryoori", an approach that adapts
Western-style cooking to the
Japanese palate. A fresh, garden
salad was then a novel idea in
Japan, where meals were tradition-
ally accompanied by pickled veg-
etables. To make a dressing that
would appeal to Japanese tastes,
cooks turned to the miso-thickened
sauces they already knew. They
also employed another much-used
thickening technique adding
very finely grated vegetables or
fruit, such as carrot, daikon radish,
and apple. Both methods remain
common in Japanese cooking, says
Andoh.
To American home cooks, few
cuisines seem as daunting as
Japanese, despite the fact that
Japanese restaurants are every-
where in the U.S. and sushi is
almost as familiar as pizza.
Certainly, few Americans attempt to
make Japanese dishes.

HOMEMADE SOUPS-
EASY AND NUTRITIOUS
It is almost as easy to make veg-
etable soup as it is-to open a can of
vegetable soup. And homemade
soup will have more flavor and
more nutrients than what comes off
the shelf.
A hearty, filling soup, along with
some whole grain bread and a salad,
is a satisfying meal on a cool
November night.
Any recipe for vegetable soup is
just a guide. Add or subtract accord-
ing to taste and what looks good at
the market that day, or in your
refrigerator. Add hot pepper flakes,
a dash of Tabasco or chopped
chilies for a spicier soup. Low-sodi-
um chicken broth can be used
instead of vegetable broth. Spinach
and cabbage would add color,
crunch and nutrients. Have some
leftover bell peppers? Throw them
in.
Whatever goes into the pot, what
comes out is a meal full of nutri-
ents. For years, nutrition experts
have been promoting the health
benefits of at least five daily serv-
ings of vegetables and fruits. They
now say five servings a day should
be the minimum, with nine servings
as a goal.
In addition to containing the
powerful natural anti-cancer sub-
stances called' phytochemicals,
foods like vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and beans are loaded with
fiber, which creates a full feeling
with a minimum of calories. These


foods also tend to keep you feeling
full longer than starchy, higher
calorie foods such as potatoes and
refined pasta.
So vegetable soup can warm you
up, fill you up and build up your
ability to fight disease all in one
bowl.

Getting Sneaky With Veggies
Italians eat vegetables as readily
as we eat fat-laden chips, super-
sweet desserts and soft drinks full
of empty calories. What's more,
they actually enjoy them.
Since no nagging is needed to get
* an Italian husband to eat something
other than meat and 'potatoes, and
no cajoling for a finicky youngster
to eat their peas or zucchini, using
fabulously easy Italian dishes might
help everyone at home to eat more
veggies. Here are a few tips for
doing it in ways that may win over
even a "veggie hater."
First, combine vegetables with
other ingredients that do please. If
you have a meat-and-potatoes stick-
in-the mud, feed them meatloaf.
Just don't call attention to the fact
that you have mixed a package of
chopped spinach into the ground
beef or turkey. This is one of my
favorite tricks, using defrosted
frozen spinach, squeezed dry and
sauteed briefly with chopped
onions and garlic. My neighbor's
10 year-old son, first presented with
this meatloaf, declared, "I don't like
spinach, but it's okay in this."
For picky vegetable-eaters, of
any age, who like pasta, saute a
shredded zucchini or tiny broccoli
florets in olive oil, then add a jar of
prepared pasta sauce. This works
especially well if you use a chunky
sauce containing mushrooms or a
meat sauce. -
Pasta dishes are a great way, in
general, to help people eat more
vegetables. Start by using a veg-
etable-filled lasagna (the frozen
kind is fine), adding extra, veg-
etable-spiked sauce over it. This
way, it's too hard to pick out the
vegetables. Worst case, remember
that even if they eat around the veg-
gies, tomato sauce counts as a veg-
etable.
If disliking vegetables is more a
matter a matter of taste than of prin-
ciple, try puttanesca sauce. No
anchovies, but olives, capers and
garlic, plus chunky tomatoes, give.
it suclirobust flavor that the cauli-
floewer1.hdded' usually goes unno-
ticee. This sice is excellent over;
whole-wheat pasta, either linguini
or penne, which adds extra nutrients
and health protection to a meal.

Special offer for those who suffer from



HEADACHES


Thousands of people suffer because
of headaches. The average person
seeks to rid himself of pain the quickest
way, rather than to determine the real
abnormal condition that is causing con-
tinued headaches.
Based upon scientific knowledge
every organ, gland, muscle and tissue
of the body must be supplied with its full
quota of vital energy from the brain to
function properly. This nerve energy
orginates in the brain and may only be
transmitted to its ultimate destination in
the spinal cord by passing through the
openings -in the spinal column and
branching (as an intricate network) to
every organ of the body.
If these delicate nerve trunks are
subjected to pressure of the hard bony
segments of the spine, distress results.
The only possible way this vital nerve
energy can be restored is to free the
passage from the spinal column to the
distressed parts of the ,body. "e -
Upon locating the misaligned'seg-
ments of the spine, your chiropractor,
Dr. Robert Helveston will employ a sci-
entific movement known as adjustment.
The sole purpose of this adjustment is
for restoration of the misaligned verte-
bra to its normal position and the
removal of pressure on the delicate
nerve trunks extending from the spine.
With removal of the pressure, vital nerve
energy is restored and built-up tension
in the muscles is relaxed.


When the nerve pressure is removed
and tension relaxed, harmony exists. All
muscles, glands, cells and tissues begin
working together. Where harmony
exists, it is impossible for headaches to
be present in the human body.
If you are a victim of headaches see
your chiroprac- .,
tor Dr. Robert '- -


Helveston. Let
him correct the


1'


spinal cause
and release ;-
pressure, relax i
tension and ''
relieve pain.
Without harmful

If you suffer from HEADACHES
here is a special offer from Dr. Robert
Helveston. I will almost "give away"
$1 00- worth of my services for $15-0.

August 30, 2007, The Herald-Advocate 5A


Well, we're right back where we were last week, facing Friday night
football, the first game of the season. After the lightning and rain sent the
Wildcats home last Friday, we are hopeful they can get on the field this
Friday, taking on 5A North Fort Myers, which won 7-0 over Cape Coral
Mariner in its classic game last week.
I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to seeing the 2007
Wildcats and expect some solid play from them. Conditioning three times
a week all summer and three-a-days at summer camp have gone a long way
to making them durable and familiar with their new head coach's plans.
So, after all, Hardee swimming, volleyball and junior varsity football
may get under way before varsity football does.
Swimming was scheduled to begin on Tuesday evening at Port
Charlotte, weather permitting. Volleyball was at rival DeSoto, and I doubt
the girls got rained out.
Tonight (Thursday), the volleyball girls host Palmetto. JV play at 6 and
varsity about 7:30. If you'd rather chance it outside, the swimmers start at
5:30 with their first tri-meet of the season with Ridge Community and
Santa Fe Catholic scheduled to come here.
JV football opens its season at home tonight with a visit from Avon
Park. Game time is 7 p.m., at Wildcat Stadium, of course.
It won't be that long before girls and boys golf and boys and girls cross
country also get going. The junior high sports are having tryouts for foot-
ball and softball. The first softball games are at Sebring on Sept. 24, the first
Jr. High football game Sept. 25, also at Sebring.

Summer sports are over.
There was a large crop of kids playing the Summer Sertoma golf tour
at the various Heartland courses. Representing Hardee were Taylor Barlow,
Will Bennett, Bradley Brewer, Tyler, Kyle and Dalton Hewett, Brek and
Lacey McClenithan, Grayson Lambert, Daniel Miller, Trenton Moon,
Justin Painter, and Kaleb and Lincoln Saunders. Painter graduated from
Hardee in June and will play his collegiate golf at Webber.
Also over are the summer softball leagues. Wauchula First Methodist
took the season title and St. Michael's claimed the tournament title in the
Women's Church Softball League.
In Men's Community League, Merrill Lynch was the Division I season
winner and The Krew topped Division II. The Peace River Electric
Cooperative Inc. Legion of Doom came back to be winner of the post-sea-
son, double-elimination tournament.
Other Hardee grads are now in pro basketball, playing in the European






WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered showers brought varying amounts of rain to the State during
August 20 -26. Rainfall for the week ranged from none in Live Oak to over
four an half inches in Avalon. Areas receiving over two inches included
Miami, Ona, Umatilla, and West Palm Beach. Lake Alfred recorded over
three inches and Dover recorded over four inches of rain for the week. All
other areas, ranged from traces to nearly two inches of precipitation.
Temperatures in the major stations averaged from one to four degrees above
normal. Hot daytime temperatures were in the low to upper 90s. Evening
lows were in the 60s and 70s.
fIELD CROPS
In Jackson County, a small acreage of peanuts has been dug with no
yields measured yet. Peanuts are dying due to dry soils in Santa Rosa
County. Extreme heat coupled with the extended periods of lack of precip-
itation has drastically affected potential yields of both peanuts and cotton in
the Panhandle. Peanut condition was rated 10 percent very poor, 30 percent
poor, 40 percent fair, 18 percent good, and 2 percent excellent. Cotton
growers in Santa Rosa County expect to begin picking by mid- September.
Field crops that survived platiting problems and early drought have recov-
ered minimally, especially corn in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.
Oldest planted cotton has generally shut down and is rapidly opening for an
early harvest in Santa Rosa County. Hay growers have been able to get only
one hay cutting due to the dry spell in the Panhandle and central Peninsula
areas. There were some reports of armyworm pressure in some pasture
fields in central Peninsula areas. Topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies in
the Panhandle were mostly very short to adequate. Soil moisture supplies
across the Peninsula were very short to adequate. Marion and Hendry coun-
ties reported very short to surplus soil supplies.

VEGETABLES
Fall crop planting continues actively in the southern Peninsula areas.
Growers continue to market light shipments of okra in Dade County.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture condition was very poor
to good. Stock pond water levels are down or dry. Extreme heat and lack of
rainfall has drastically decreased the pasture crop. Grass for grazing has
been sufficient for the summer, but very little hay has been cut. Livestock
condition varies from very poor to excellent, but most are in fair condition.
In central areas, pasture condition were poor to excellent, but most was in
fair condition due to drought. Cattle condition was mostly fair to good with
some in excellent condition. In Sumter County, some locations have had no
substantial rain since August 3rd and the grass is stressed and yellowing.
Hay crops have been short and armyworms were present in some areas.
Cattle have been nestled under shade trees trying to beat the heat. In the
southwest, pasture condition ranged from poor to excellent, but most was in
good condition. Sporadic rainfall has slowed forage production. Cattle con-
dition was very poor to excellent with most in good condition. Statewide,
cattle condition was mostly fair to good.

CITRUS
SRain showers towards the end of the week assisted growers in several
citrus producing counties in keeping the trees watered. Rainfall for the week
measured from over three inches in Lake Alfred to no rain in Sebring.
Northern and western citrus localities received between one and a half and


.two inches of rain. Daytime temperatures in all monitored citrus producing
counties reached the low to mid 90s. The highest recording was in Sebring
at 96 degrees. Florida's citrus growers reported the crop is in good condi-
tion, with good fruit sets. Fruit sizes on oranges are larger than golf ball size
and on grapefruit, baseball size or larger. Caretakers continued with fertil-
izing programs, oil and copper spraying, mowing, and young tree care.
Irrigation was run regularly, usually two to three times a week. Management
practices to assist in keeping greening under control were being put into
place. Crews are scouting for greening and taking out affected trees.


League. Bowling Green's Theo Jones grabbed MIAA defensive player of
the year honors and set a three-point record of an outstanding 47 percent for
the University of Central Missouri Mules. Now he has signed a contract to
take his talents to Romania. Former Wildcat Ronnie Clark is also in Europe,
playing for a Switzerland team and leading it in rebounding.
There are a couple of upcoming events to put on your calendar.
Duffers, prepare for the second annual Magnolia Manor Open at
Torrey Oaks on Sept. 22, starting at 8 a.m. The cost is $40 per person and
the format will be a four-person scramble. There will be prizes through
drawings and hole plan and food and desserts provided throughout the day.
For more information, visit www.magnoliamanorpark.com or call Torrey
Oaks at 767-0302.
Also coming up is the Sept. 29 pro wrestling card at the Agri-Civic
Center. Bouts begin at 7:30, but the featured event is a tussle between a pair
of former Wildcats. George Rodriguez, 26, who still resides in Wauchula,
is challenging old-timer Eddie White, 27, now a resident' of Plant City.
Word is that White intends to accept the challenge and issue his own. Watch
for more information to be forthcoming.
Hardee Youth Football started last weekend. We had hoped to have
some scores available for you by now, but will have rosters for cheerlead-
ers and players, a full schedule and results by next week's issue.

THE ABSENCE OF GOD
I received the following story from an anonymous source and thought
it worthy of sharing with the general public, those who may or may not
believe in the infinite and powerful God of Scriptures.
A college professor challenged the class with this question:
"Did God make everything there is?"
One student bravely answered, "Yes!"
"Everything, young man?"
"Yes, he did, sir," the young man replied. The professor
responded, "If God made everything, then God made evil, and
if we can only create from within ourselves, then God is evil."
The student didn't have a response, and the professor was
happy to have once again proved the Christian faith to be a
myth. Then another young man raised his hand and asked,
"May I ask you something, sir?"
"Yes, you may," responded the professor.
The young man stood up and said, "Sir, is there such thing
as cold?"
"Of course there is. What kind of a question is that?
Haven't you ever been cold?" The young man replied,
"Actually, sir, cold does not exist. What we consider to be cold
is really only the absence of heat. Absolute zero is when there
is absolutely no heat, but cold does not really exist. We have
only created that term to describe how we feel when heat is
not there."
The young man continued, "Sir, is there such thing as
dark?"
Once again, the professor responded "Of course there is."
And once again, the student replied, "Actually, sir, darkness
does not exist. Darkness is really only the absence of light.
Darkness is only a term man developed to describe what hap-
pens when there is no light present."
Finally, .the young man asked, "Sir, is there such thing as
evil?"
The professor responded, "Of course. We have rapes and
murders and violence everywhere in the world. Those things
are evil."
The student replied, "Actually, sir, evil does not exist. Evil
is simply the absence of God. Evil is a term man developed to
describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. It isn't
like truth or love, which exist as virtues like heat and light.
Evil is simply the state where God is not present, like cold
without heat or darkness without light."
The professor had nothing to say.
A world without God is a desperate, dark world with nothing worthy
of saving. Fortunately, this world has a God who has made the world worth
saving. We know this because this same God enacted a plan that took thou-
sands of years, and that culminated in the sacrifice of His only beloved Son
so that the consequence of sin might be done away with.
That sin, those moments when we act against God because we are not
focused on Him, is forgiven when we give it to God and we are made clean
again by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. It is Him who is our light and Him
who we can mirror in our walk in this dark world.
As Ephesians 5:8-10 states, "for you were formerly darkness, but now
you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the
Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn
what is pleasing to the Lord."
Let us all strive to learn what is pleasing to the Lord as we put away
evil and replace it with goodness, righteousness and truth. We do know that
God is pleased by those who take His offer of salvation. "This is good and
acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved
and to come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3-4). I'm Telling
the Truth.

'ANNUALS' OR 'YEARBOOKS' WE WANT YOURS!
Webster defines "yearbook" as "an annual book; a book giving data of
the preceding year; a publication of the graduating class of a school or col-
lege."
When I graduated from Hardee High School in 1965, we called those
.books "annuals." Very few people refer to them that way anymore, instead
they speak of them as their "yearbooks." However you refer to them, they
are still that thick-padded book with,a distinctive year embedded on the
front cover.
It's that reference book on our home bookshelves that we all seem to
head for when a schoolmate's name comes up and we can't quite remem-
ber what he looked like. A quick shuffling of pages and we can usually find
that face in a particular grade, and we immediately remember.
Internet research for the history of yearbooks did not provide an
answer for when they first came into existence; however, on a site of "vin-
tage yearbooks" one could locate some beginning with the year of 1900.
.The earliest one available on that site was from 1907 at Delaware College.
*I would imagine that those early yearbooks were primarily from colleges
.rather than high schools.
Some genealogy Web sites such as Ancestry.com also offer scanned
images of yearbook pages they have in their inventory. My dad's high
school happens to be one of those schools that Ancestry.com has in its

inventory, and I was able to locate his high school pictures from the partic-
ular years that he attended Hamilton High School in Ohio. Since his two
brothers were one year ahead and one year behind him, I was able to enter
those names as well and pull up the entire yearbook page which included
their pictures.
Our Hardee County Public Library has nine years of yearbooks on its
shelves. They include the years of 1958, 1960, 1962 through 1965, 1967,
1971 and 1974. The media center at the high school has yearbooks on its
shelves from 1949 through 2007.
It is the wish of Cracker Trail Museum that we also have a collection
Sof those memory books of years gone by. Many of us have perhaps not only
our own, yearbooks, but maybe those of our parents or maybe even grand-
parents as well. What a treasure it would be to have a collection of all of
,-the yearbooks from Hardee High School housed within our museum for
Y future generations to enjoy.
Won't you consider donating your "annuals" to the museum, in recog-
nition of the years you spent walking those "hallowed halls of Hardee" or
in memory of your relatives who did the same?

Pioneer Medical Hires Milam


By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
Pioneer Medical Center recently
hired Deborah Milam as a new
physician's assistant.
Milam's first day on the job was
July 24, and she has been busy with
her new patients since then. She is
a Panama City native, who returned
to Florida from Georgia two years
ago.
Her career began as a teacher in
Tifton, Ga., where she taught for 21
years. Milam has a master's degree
in reading education from the Uni-
versity of Georgia.
After a change of heart she decid-
ed to pursue a degree in the medical
field. "I worked full time as an ele-
mentary school teacher while
putting myself through school to be
able to get into P.A. school," Milam
said.
She began attending Trevecca
University in Nashville, Tenn.,
after completing her pre-med class-
es. She graduated in 1995.
The school is a four-year college
close to Vanderbilt University, well
known for its P.A. program.
Milam has experience in gas-
troenterology, surgery, internal
medicine and urgent care.
She currently lives in Sebrihg
and says it was her rural back-
ground that brought her to the
Heartland. "I really like Wauchula


because I enjoy the small-town
atmosphere," she said.
Milam is a pet owner, with two
Doberman pinchers and a cat. Her
hobbies include photography, yard
work and relaxing.
She joins fellow physician's


assistants Gary Gossman and
Lauren Canary in practice.
Physician's Assistant John Gill is
currently away on active military
duty.
Pioneer Medical Center is locat-
ed at 515 Carlton St., Wauchula. '

23 million Americans considered to
have substance abuse problems
right now? Did you know that there
are over 1 million people in this
country receiving substance abuse
treatment right now?
Did you know that the United
States has the highest jail/prison
population in the world and that
roughly 80 percent of that popula-
tion is incarcerated either directly
or indirectly for issues involving
substance abuse?
My name is Emily Milburn, I am
19, and I used to be statistic. I was-
13 years old when I first started
using drugs. My substance abuse
problems finally landed me in jail.
My family was devastated. They
did not understand why I was mak-
ing such poor choices. They did not
know what to do or where to turn.
They were confused, they were dis-
appointed, but more than anything
they just wanted to get me some
help!
Fortunately for my family and
ultimately for me, there are avenues
readily available for people to get
help in our great country. News-

I graduated from the Narconon

After our trip was over I took some lemon/lime Gatorade powder and
prepared two large glassfuls of restorative beverage for us to drink while
cooling off on the front porch.
It is always interesting to see how the river looks under County Line
Road. Once we saw an alligator. Another time we saw the creature from the
Black Lagoon.

In the Summer 2007 issue of Psychology For Living magazine, Kim
Gaines Eckert writes about "Doing Battle With Your Body Developing
A Healthy Body Image In A Toxic Body Culture."
She was obese (20 percent or more over the healthy weight for ier
height) at age 20. She writes she soon was able to lose weight "the old-fash-
ioned way: by eating less and exercising more."
Eckert blames the fashion indusuy partly for some women having
unrealistic expectations on how their body should look. "The average fash-
ion model today is 5-11 and weighs 117 pounds, whereas the average
American woman is 5-4 and weighs 140 pounds."
Eckert writes the miraculous human body "can replace your skeleton
every 90 days, your liver every six weeks, your skin every month, and your
stomach lining every five days.
This Christian-based article says God "created us in His image with a
unity of body and spirit." Our bodies are important, but we are not supposed
to "disdain or hate our bodies." Rather, we are to "present our bodies as liv-
ing sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God" (Romans 12:1).
Our bodies house our souls. We also should not "allow our bodies to
become idols or false gods. Food, money and prestige can be idols, but try-
ing to look like the ideal American female can also be."
Eckert says we should "value and honor our bodies as one part of
God's good creation," to see ourselves as whole persons. "If you misuse
your body by treating it poorly and/or hating it, then you cannot honor and
reflect God fully."
She writes a person can focus on simple things, like breathing, feeling
pain, playing tennis or taking the dog for a walk, feel a breeze on your face,
hugging a friend or playing with a child. Turn negatives into positives.
Enjoy your curves.
Monitor your physical hunger. Eat slowly. Drink plenty of liquids. She
says to learn more about God through pleasurable activities such as walk-
ing through nature or seeing a sunset, through activities that challenge your
physically, and through self-denial.
"Weare 'fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:13). We are not
to worship our bodies, ignore them, misuse them or hiate them, but to
embrace them."

Psychology For Living also reports that Bill Gates, the founder of
Microsoft, and his wife Melinda limit the amount of time their children can
spend on the computer. How much? "Forty-five minutes a day for games
during the week and one hour a day on weekends, plus all the time they
need for homework."
Gates told his son when he moves away from home "you can set your
own screen limits."

New Florida Gov. Charlie Crist recently hosted a two-day summit on
global warming. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called Crist
"another great action hero."
Crist wants Florida to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Florida, with
1,350 miles of coastline, would be vulnerable to global warming that melt-
ed a lot of the polar ice cap and caused ocean levels to rise.
The St. Petersburg Times reported Florida is the third largest consumer
of power in the U.S. and ranks in the top 25 producers of greenhouse gases
in the world. Nearly half of the gases come form the state's power plants.

Hardee County churches for 2006 Top Dollar Amount Given to the
Cooperative Program which funds missionary programs.
Oak Grove Baptist Church, pastored by Rev. Jim Davis, was first in the
state in 1-99 Average Sunday School Attendance giving $54,878.
First Baptist Church of Wauchula, pastored by Rev. Bob Norman, was
first in the 100-299 Average Sunday School Attendance giving
$138,288. Both churches are in the Orange Blossom Baptist Association.
Norman is retired and living in Texas.
First in the state in 2006 Top Percentage Giving of churches of 100-
299 Average Sunday School Attendance was Thomas Memorial Baptist
Church in Quincy at 19 percent of undesignated receipts. The pastor is Rev.
Grant Hignight, former pastor of New Hope Baptist Church.

Hardee had several good rains over the weekend. Bowling Green
received five inches or more.
Water levels are coming up some in the river and creeks.

The Wauchula Elks Lodge has an important meeting for members
tonight (Thursday) at 7 to discuss the future. The lodge has been a big part
of Wauchula for many years.
Long-time manager Buck Disharoon passed away. recently. He did a
good job.

The current Elks magazine has an article on the history of soap,which
was discovered in ancient Roman times. A lady who washed her clothes in
the upper Tiber River discovered her clothes were cleaner after animals
upriver was slaughtered and their carcasses burned.
It was the animal fat and the wood ashes in the water that did the trick.
Soap was named after Mount Sapo (a fictional place?) and made with ani-
mal fat, ashes and water. Some soaplike substances dated back to 2800 BC.
The Phoenicians in about 600 BC began to sell soap, made with goat
fat, wood ash and water. Salt was added to make the soap harder, wrote
Victor Parachin. Soapmaking thrived in Spain and Italy'in the Eighth
Century. That was long before you and I were born.

Lack of soap and bathing contributed to the spread of deadly diseases
such as the Black Plague, some historians speculate, wrote Parachin.
Legend has it King Louis XIV of France (1643-1715) once had thfiree
soapmakers beheaded when they produced soap that "severely irritated his
sensitive skin." The remaining four royal soapmakers "started using olive
oil rather than the harsher goat fat in their soap."
Early American settlers started making their own soap with wood
ashes, animal fats and leftover cooking grease. Some was harsh to the skin.
A factory accident in America in 1879 resulted in a new and popular
soap. Harley Proctor, who helped found Proctor and Gamble, and his
cousin James Gamble developed a nearly pure white soap. A factory work-
er one day did not turn off a mixing machine when he went to lunch. The
mix was poured into hardening frames anyway, and the soap contained tiny
air bubbles and floated.
SIt was an instant success for P & G White Soap. After attending church
and hearing Psalm 45 from the Bible, Proctor renamed the new product
Ivory Soap in 1879.
Knowing the electric lightbulb might eventually ruin his profitable
candle trade, Proctor touted Ivory Soap as "the soap that floats."
Laboratories tested the soap and found only 56/100 of 1 percent to be impu-
rities. He then began the successful marketing theme that Ivory Soap was
"99 and 44/100ths percent pure."
Proctor retired wealthy at age 44, reported the Elks magazine.
When doctors started washing their hands frequently, infection rates
among patients dropped dramatically. In the old days medical students did
not wash their hands between performing autopsies and before examining,
patients. In the early 1800s maternal mortality rates were as high as 20 per-
cent in Austria. Dr. Semmelweiss discovered doctors "went straight to the
delivery room after performing autopsies on women who had died of puer-
peral fever," wrote Parachin.
French chemist Louis Pasteur later demonstrated "infectious diseases
were transmitted as a result of microbacteria, or germs."

On Tuesday morning, Aug. 21, my neighbor W.H. Harward Jr., 83, and
I jogged in slow motion 3.3. miles. We go to the Peace River bridge and
back. The weather was warm, but there was a slight breeze,

Hardee Hosts North Fort Myers Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
First chance to get a look at the
Hardee Wildcats.
The 'Cats will actually take the
field for the first time this season,
weather permitting.
With the cancellation of last
week's pre-season classic because
of .thunderstorms in the Auburndale
area, Hardee fans will actually get
their first look at the 'Cats when
they host North Fort Myers tomor-
row (Friday) night.
All Hardee got for its efforts last
week was a long bus ride. Hope-
fully, the first game of the season,
against the Class 5A-District 12
squad from Lee County, will be
more productive before Hardee
clashes with longtime rival Fort
Meade on Sept. 7.
North Fort Myers comes to Wild-
cat Stadium with a win under its
belt, taking Cape Coral Mariner 7-
0 in last week's fall classic game.
There are 15 seniors, 14 juniors
and a half dozen sophs suiting up
for North Fort Myers, including a
pair of quarterbacks, senior Bo
Billman and junior Jose Feliciano.
Kicker/punter Trey Yeatter is a
junior. The weighty line includes a
pair of 280-pound senior tackles,
Shane Makar and Thomas
Trammell.
Hardee counters with 12 seniors,
18 juniors, six sophomores and a
talented freshman. Quarterbacking
duties go to sophomore Ezayi
Youyoute and senior Jordan Grims-
ley. Punter Tyler Bumby is a senior.
Tackles, senior Tyrone Pace, a 285-
pounder and junior Jordan Baker, a
280-pounder, are the heaviest on
the Wildcat line.


Head coach James landoli and
his staff will try to stop the 3A-12
Wildcat attack of Head Coach Tim
Price and his assistants, John
Sharp, Steve Rewis, David
Mahoney, Lee Thomas .and Greg
Mann.
Seniors taking the field for their
final Hardee season include Grims-
ley, Bumby, Pace, Joseph Barton,


Jimmy Cimeus, Jayquan Gandy, David Newcomb, Charlie Powell,
Eddie Hunt, Jason Jester, Wade Carlos Ramirez, Damien Richards,
Mahoney, Kriss Rossman, Gerardo Juan Salazar, Logan Thomas, Justin
Villegas and Olnel Virgile. Tomlinson and Brett Tyson.
Juniors stepping up to the task Underclassmen are sophs
include Baker, Skylar Alden, Chris Youyoute, Tyler Alden, Nick
Anderson, Kenneth Bonds, Battles, Dalton Farr, Antjuan Jones
Devante Carter, Alex Lanier, and Kelsheem White, with fresh-

THE OLD TESTAMENT IN MOTION

By Special Guest Speaker Ed Diaz

Ever feel that the Old Testament is impossible to understand? You are not
alone! For most Christians, putting the Old Testament together is like trying to
do a large jigsaw puzzle without ever getting to look at the picture on the box.

Well, there's hope! Ed Diaz will join us each Wednesday in September and
show us the big picture on the box lid!

By the end of our study, you will be able to recall and repeat the important
chronological events, including, the major people and places.
Plus you will have a great time in the process!

This is a study you don't want to miss.
So join us each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in September (5. 12. 19. 26)
as we put the Old Testament in motion.

Rise & Shine

ACCOUNTABILITY
One secret strength of the movement associated with John Wesley was
"accountability"; Most of the time, the early Methodistg did not meet in
mass meetings. Instead, small groups met where members held each other
strictly accountable for their actions and attitudes. Wesley had a beautiful
phrase for this. He called it "watching over one another in love."
Before someone entered one of these little communities, he would be
asked a series of questions to see if he were really serious. Today, these
questions might be considered "an invasion of privacy." But those early
Methodists were determined to live open and transparent lives, not just
before the penetrating gaze of heaven but before their comrades on earth as
well.
Does any sin, inward or outward, have dominion over you?
Do you desire to be told of your faults and that plain and clear?
Do you desire to be entirely open so as to speak everything that is in
your heart without exception, without disguise and without reserve?
What is the value of living like this? Does it not remove all excuses for
living falsely or superficially? Does it not deprive the devil of "elbow
room" to cause mischief? Does it not keep everyone humble and small in
his own eyes? Does it not unite and strengthen those who pray together?
Perhaps it would be too much to challenge a whole Sunday School
class, Bible study group or church congregation to live like this. But two
friends could do it with God's help until they got good at it. Then perhaps
each could begin practicing the same transparency with a new friend.
This is called "mentoring" and there's not much of it going on these
days. But it is extremely valuable for those who desire to grow spiritually.

TRADITIONAL SKILLS


Hardee/Polk Renew Fire Pact


COURTESY PHOTO
Twenty-five youngsters ages 8-18 participated in the six-week Back To Basics summer day camp
recently conducted by Home & Community Educators and 4-H and Family & Consumer Science
youth and staff. Traditional skills, sometimes lost in this techno-world, were shared by experi-
enced adults with the enthusiastic youngsters. They were taught how to sew, paint, cook, bake
and to work wood, and completed such unique craft projects as the one displayed above.
Participants also heard from guest speakers from throughout the community. Back To Basics,
the first program of its kind and initiated in Hardee County, is in its sixth year. It is funded by the
Hardee County 4-H Foundation and a number of local businesses.


BEAUTIFICATION AWARD


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
At least for another year, Hardee
and Polk counties will help each
other fight fires.
At its last meeting, the Hardee
County Commission signed off on
the 2007-08 fire protection agree-
ment in which Polk County will
pay $8,000 for Hardee to cover
some of the southernmost areas of
the huge neighboring county.
Station 3 in Bowling Green is the
closest unit and first to respond to
fires across the county line but
within its outreach.
In that designated "Service
Area," Hardee County will be re-
sponsible for fire/arson investiga-
tions or maintaining a presence on
site until a state arson investigator
comes, since maintaining the inves-
tigative chain of evidence is key to
determining the cause.
In return also, Polk County will
provide mutual aid to Hardee fire
response support, sending special-
ized equipment, such as hazardous-
materials support, mobile com-
mand or communications vehicles
and aerial devices, and breathing
air service. Polk County will either
move to the scene or provide sta-
tion coverage for Hardee staff
fighting the fire.
"They come to use a lot more
than we go to them," said Fire
Chief Mike Choate.
Hardee is obligated to use as
much as possible bof the $8,000 for
upgrading equipment and/or pur-
chasing new equipment.
In other action, the commission:
approved a modification of
the agreement with CF Industries,
mainly correcting a typographical
error in the original agreement and

Heartland Rural Economic Initia-
tive (FHREDI) and Florida's Fresh-
water Frontier. Bryant questioned
the total $12,137.90 in view of cuts
to other groups during the budget
process.
Smith, who is the liaison and reg-
ularly attends FHREDI meetings,
said Hardee has benefit from the
showcases of economic develop-
ment, bringing in business opportu-
nities and also is top on the
agency's list of transportation pri-
orities. "U.S. 17 in now the fron-
trunner on FHREDI's list of most-
needed transportation, because it is
an evacuation corridor and access
key for the county and southern
. counties," said Smith.
discussed the Orange Walk
subdivision rezone, which was
inadvertently approved as a change


from Agricultural-1 to Residential-
2 as a Planned Unit Development.
However, R-2 zoning requires
7,500-square-foot lots (75'xlOO')
with setbacks of 30'front, 20' rear
and 7'sides.
The Orange Walk PUD at,
Tustenugee Trail and Heard Bridge
Road (almost opposite where REA
Road ends), is planned for.71 resi-
dential lots of 50'x100' or.5,000
square feet. It also plans setbacks of
20' front, 20' read and 5'sides.
Commissioners said all their dis-
cussions approved the engineering
and design provided and did not
intend for it to have R-2 zoning.
"Smaller lots were considered more
affordable for the mostly senior cit-
izens who will reside there," said
Commissioner Nick Timmerman.
The PUD is a mechanism to get
below the R-2 lot size but remain a
residential community, explained
County Manager Lex Albritton.

The Jerusalem artichoke has
nothing to do with either Jeru-
salem or artichokes. It is actually

Rashad Faison put one big distrac-
tion out of the way on Monday
night. The versatile 5'10", 180-
pound senior made a verbal com-

at the University of South Carolina.
Faison said Tuesday that he had
talked with Gamecock head coach
Brad Scott last week, and made his
final decision in a phone conversa-

Due to NCAA rules, Scott is unable
to offer comments until signing this

Letter To The Editor

Ad Valorem Property

Taxpayers Axed Again


Dear Editor:
Recently the Hardee County
Commission authorized a study of
our fire assessment fees. The
Government Services Group is
nationally and state-accredited to
determine fire assessment fees that
are fair and legally defensible,
according to law.
This most recent study was done
later than usual (the last one was in
2001). This was caused mainly by
the hub-bub and confusion related
to Hurricane Charley.
The study breaks down fire fees
according to percentage of calls.
The local percentages were as fol-
lows: residential 39.27 percent;
commercial 16.27 percent; indus-
trial warehouse 2.35 percent; insti-
tutional 16.99 percent; transient .77
percent; vacant land 24.34 percent.
The study group gave several
options for assessing these fees. In,
previous years, vacant land was not
assessed because of problems with
parcel size differences. This time,
the study group said it would be
legal to assess vacant land by the
acre.
Using percentage of calls, the
Government Services Groups
reported that the mostfair and legal
way to assess the fire fees is to have
residential at $136.00 per year;
commercial at approximately $0.23
per square foot; transient $10.00
per unit; vacant land at $1.96 per
acre. Any assessment less than this
will require an ad valorem subsidy
to complete the fire budget.
At a recent commission meeting
to set the highest rate, the commis-
sion voted three to two to set the
high rate for land at 25 percent of
the proposed fair and legal rate as
determined by the study group.
This means that an extra $500,000
will have to be made up through
other budget means. This, of
course, must come from ad valorem
taxes, which are funded mainly by


residential and commercial proper-
ty owners.
Why did these three cominis-
sioners vote to unfairly tax ad val-
orem instead of funding fairly with
the recommended fee noted by the
study? To answer this, it is impor-
tant to know who would be most
affected by the full $1.96 per acre
assessment of vacant land.
The mining companies are, by
far, the largest landowners in
Hardee County. They would be
assessed the most money if the 100
percent fire fee had been enacted.
It seems that two of our commis-
sioners' "families" lease land
directly from these mining compa-
nies. Having leases in their fami-
lies' name may be technically legal,
but, in my opinion, this raises moral
and ethical questions when dealing,
directly with something that affects
the mining companies. The" third
commissioner who voted to lower
fire fees to $0.49 per acre lives in a
district largely owned by the mines.
Interesting, huh? I personally
would be interested in joining
forces with other ad valorem tax-
payers to test the legality of this
less than fair attack on ad valorem
dollars.
Raising an additional $500,000
to cover costs and balance the bud-
get will ultimately result in job
cuts.

Respectfully,
Commissioner

The Osceola is a highly prized

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


/.-


FINE, THANK YOU
As far as I'm concerned, fine is a fine.word. So is swell. I've got noth-
ing against those words. The reason I intend never to use either of them ever
again isn't because I don't like them, but because Hem wore them out.
Every time I write them an image ;- z into my head of slipping on an old
pair of socks that someone has worn holes in, washed all the color out of,
and tossed in the trash.
Hem was a stickler for using the precise word, for making every word
count. He never used a $10 word if he could get by with a 10-cent word. He
knew the $10 words, but believed they were showy and pretentious.
He tried to keep description to a minimum, believing that if a piece
were written well enough and truly enough, unstated description would
ooze out between the lines.
He utilized the "iceberg theory," which says that what gives an iceberg
its dignity and grace is not the one-fifth you see above water, but the four-
fifths below the surface you do not see.
He developed the theory that something omitted can still affect the
reader as if it were there; he believed that certain things in a story that the
author knows, he can leave out, thus adding power and giving the reader an
emotional jolt which he feels but does not understand:
To Ernest Hemingway, ostentatious adjectives or adverbs such as grand
and grandly, splendid and splendidly, excellent and excellently, etc. were
anathema so time after time, he resorted to the simple words swell and
fine.
As in: It was a swell party; we had a fine time.
After the publication of "A Farewell to Arms," which was a fine book,
the word fine caught on among the reading public to such an extent that
anyone using a bigger, fancier word was considered a show-off or, worse,
a sissy.

In his first, and possibly his best, novel, "Appointment in Samarra,"
John O'Hara in one scene has his hard-drinking, self-destructive protago-
nist, Julian English, sitting alone in the locker room of his country club,
drunk, head in hands, thinking thoughts in which fine appears often. Then
English reflects upon "A Farewell to Arms" and thinks about what a fine
book it is and what a fine word fine had become.
But I never.really realized, until recently, as I was reading a thick tome
called "Selected Letters of Ernest Hemingway," the degree of Hem's obses-
sion with those words, fine and swell. He uses at least one, and often both,
in almost every letter and usually more than once.
As in: Dear Scott (Fitzgerald), was swell seeing you in Paris. Hadley
had a fine time. You were plenty cockeyed all right, stewed to the gills. It
will be swell if we bump into each other in New York next month. Hope
"Tender is the Night" sells truckloads. Love to your swell wife Zelda and
to you too my fine cockeyed old friend.
Single handedly, Hemingway pushed fine from being a swell choice of
words into the dust bin of Tritesville. He nudged swell right along behind
it.
Now I know what you're thinking: Hey, they're only words. What's
the big deal? A word is just a word. A word never hurt anyone.
Wrong. .
One of the greatest lies of all time is the little verse we teach children:
"Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me."
Of course words hurt us.-A simple word like goodbye can be devastat-
ing. It would be fine if we'd all try to be more aware of our words, and the
tone of voice with which we utter them.
Wouldn't it be swell if we'd all remember that?
This old world that keeps right on turning, over which the sun rises
every day, upon which the rain falls on the just and the unjust, can seem so
cruel but it could be a fine place if we'd all be more discriminating in
our choice of words.

BETTY'S OFF THE BOTTLE
Betty Davis, the calf, is off the bottle. This didn't come about due to
any real planning or because of any tight schedule that deemed it was time
to wean her. It happened because Pete, the stupid dog, found her bottle and
chewed the rubber nipple clear off of it.
If that wasn't enough, Betty is getting bigger and milk replacer is
expensive. At the time the nipple got chewed up, it also happened to be time
to buy more milk. Needless to say, Betty was abruptly weaned.
To say she took it well would be an outright lie of the greatest magni-
tude. .
Much like any other baby, Betty had a routine. In the morning, she was
let out of her pen and she would take her bottle near the front porch. That's
also where she got her ears scratched and a little bit of attention. In the
evening, she was baited back into her pen for her nighttime feeding.
When the bottles ceased to come, there was no more quality time being
spent talking to her while she guzzled down her three quarts a day. She no
longer came on the gallop when we walked outside holding the bottle that,
in her mind, was the only thing standing between her and starvation.
To put it simply, Betty was a psychological mess. She had no idea
whether to come or to go, or where to, or when to. She complained bois-
terously, and it was this complaining that led me to believe that she blamed
my husband for her miserable milk-less existence.
Shortly after the infamous last bottle, when I spoke to Betty offering
words of encouragement and support, she would bawl pitifully in response.
When Fred spoke, she would bawl to drown him out. Conversations held
when Betty was nearby ended up going something like this:
Me: "Have you seen the shovel?"
Fred: "It was over by the (Moooooo!) the last time I saw it."
Me: "The what?"
Fred: "I said it's over by the (Mooooo!)"
Me: "I can't hear you!"
Fred: "I said (Moooooo!)."
"I think she's doing that on purpose," I said.
"I think she is, (Moooo). This morning she stood at the frontqporch and
bawled for an hour," Fred said.
Betty went on mooing pitifully any time someone came out of the
house, creating the illusion that we were surrounded by calves. I think the
mournful bawling finally, got to Fred, because I went to work one morning
and came home that evening to find a new bag of milk replacer sitting in
the spot where the empty one had been.
I questioned Fred later that day:
"I thought we weren't buying any more milk for Betty. I thought she
wasn't getting a bottle any more."
"She's not. She's getting a bowl full every night. But that's it! I'm not
buying any more milk after this, and that's the end of it," he said.
Now Betty has a new routine. Since she gets her bowl of milk every
evening in her pen, she has taken to putting herself away every night like
clockwork. This new arrangement really couldn't have worked out any bet-
ter if we'd planned it.
The mournful mooing has stopped, and Fred is able once again to fin-
ish a sentence in Betty's presence. But if you happen to go outside carrying
a white jug of any size or shape, she will happily trample you, thinking her
bottle has returned.
Some habits die hard, for us animals of any species.

Cats seem to go on the princi-
ple that it never does any harm
to ask for what you want.

Snook Season


Begins Sept. 1


The statewide harvest season for
snook reopens Sept. 1, and anglers
should note several new snook reg-
ulations are in effect. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission recently changed
snook bag and size limits and har-
vest seasons to help protect and
preserve snook stocks in Florida.
There is now a one-fish daily bag
limit per person statewide for
snook and a slot limit of 28 to 32
inches total length in Atlantic
waters and a 28 to 33 inches total
length limit in Florida's Gulf,
Everglades National Park and
Monroe County waters.
In addition, the snook harvest
season will close on Dec. 1 in the
Gulf, Everglades and Monroe
County and will reopen March 1.
In the Atlantic, the season will
close on Dec. 15 and reopen Feb. 1.
New rules also allow anglers to
carry more than one cast net aboard
a vessel while fishing for snook.
These rule changes are to provide
additional protection for Florida's
valuable snook populations, which

Plan Allows Growers


To Keep Disaster $$$


Florida Citrus Mutual recently
announced that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture has reached an
equitable resolution to the issues
surrounding the 2004 hurricane dis-
aster payments.
In recent weeks, the Farm Ser-
vice Agency sent many citrus, veg-
etable and nursery growers letters
saying they may have to pay the
disaster money plus interest back if
certain guidelines mostly deal-
ing with crop insurance had not
been met. The refunds would have
reached into the tens of millions of
dollars.
Under the proposal announced
by the USDA, producers can avoid
having to pay refunds by providing
proof of 2008 federal crop insur-
ance, or NAP coverage. If the sales
closing date or application closing
date for 2008 crops has passed,
then evidence of 2009 coverage is
acceptable.
In other words, if growers get
crop insurance now they won't


have to refund the disaster pay-
ment.
"Florida Citrus Mutual would
like to personally thank USDA;
Secretary Johanns for measuring
the facts in this case and making a
fair decision," said Michael W.
Sparks of Florida Citrus Mutual.
"We also acknowledge the hard
work of the Florida Congressional
delegation including senators
Martinez and Nelson, congressmen
Putnam, Boyd, Mahoney, Feeney
and Buchanan as well as the leaders
of other Florida commodity'
groups."
Growers who have already
refunded disaster payments will be
able to get it back by providing the,
Farm Service Agency with the
same insurance documentation.'
Sparks suggested growers contact
their county office immediately to
start the process.
If you have any further ques-'
tions, call Mutual's Grower Affairs
Division at (863) 682-1111.

History: The 1949 Dedication


Of Hardee County High School


Edited by Spessard Stone from The Florida Advocate
of Sept. 2, 1949.
On April 20, 1945, the Hardee County'High School
building at the southeast corner of Bay Street and
Florida Avenue was completely gutted by fire.
Subsequently, Hardee County High opened for the
1945-46 school year on May 24, 1945, with all pupils
bused to the Zolfo Springs High School building.
On April 19, 1948, C.A. Fietland Inc. of Tampa
was awarded a contract for the new high school.
Dedication ceremonies for the newly constructed
Hardee High School on Florida Avenue in Wauchula
were held on Aug. 31, 1949.
"Residents of Hardee County turned out en masse
on Wednesday afternoon for the dedication cere-
monies of the Hardee County High School. The ideal
weather added greatly to the day's enjoyment.
"Teachers from the Hardee County Teachers'
Association greeted guests at the front of the building
and acted as tour conductors through the rooms and
the plant. The high school band, Mr. Paul Creech,
director, played at intervals throughout the program
and, as always, the music was beautiful.
"As one enters from the front, the large outer office
to the left of the hallway opens into the office of the
principal. The library, home economics department,
physical education department, audio-visual room, an
infirmary and a history room, 11th to 12th grades and
lounges are included on the lower floor.
"The library has the main room, a room for recre-
ation reading, which may also be used for a confer-
ence room, a work room and a supply room. The
tables and chairs are hickory, while the shelves are
roomy and cleverly placed for convenience.
"The upper floor has the commercial department,
science rooms, student activity room, class rooms and
boys and girls' restrooms. The wood used is, for the
most part, oak.
"The chalk boards in the class rooms are made of
treated glass, green in color. Yellow chalk will be
used, and there will be no glare.
"Fluorescent lighting is used in all the rooms, while
Greens Fuel gas will supply the heating.
"All arrangements have been carried out in the
most modem manner possible, and all equipment is of
the best and newest models obtainable.
"The lunch room is spacious and commodious and
here, also, tools and equipment are all that should be
wished for.
"The program opened with a flag ceremony. This,
as well as all the program, was held at the east of the
building, in front of the main entrance. Members of
the Herger Williams Legion Post No. 2, American
Legion, had charge of the ceremony.
"In his address, Post Commander Emil Causey pre-
sented the two flags, one was given by Sen. Claude


Pepper and Rep. J. Hardin Peterson. The flag had
flown over the White House in Washington before
being sent to the Legion Post.
"The other flag had been presented by Mr. and Mrs.
B.D. Dees in honor of their son, Bartley Dees, killed.
in action in the Pacific. It was sent home with the
body of the son.
"After prayer by Addison Whitman, post chaplain,
Carl Hanna and Jack Melendy raised the colors (the
second flag) while the bugler played "To The
Colors." This was followed by the playing of "The
Star Spangled Banner."
"Miss Ruth Southerland, general supervisor, greet-
ed the guests with her accustomed poise and grace,
introducing county and city officials, visitor from
DeSoto, Polk and Highlands counties, and two former
teachers in the county high school, Mrs. Winifred
Evans and Miss Grace Godley.
"Mrs. Evans dedicated the Ara Carlton Finley
Memorial Library, paying tribute to Mrs. Finley's
devotion to her profession and to the affection always
present between her and her students.
"Miss Southerland next introduced J.K. Chapman,
deputy superintendent of schools for the state and for-
mer very popular principal of Wauchula High School.
Mr. Chapman's pleasure in returning to visit
Wauchula was equally felt by all who heard him. He
told his listeners that the high schools equaled or sur-
passed any new building he had visited.
"Mr. Chapman introduced State Supt. Thomas D.
Bailey. He traced the increase in revenue of school
funds since 1940 and urged that students improve to
the utmost their opportunities.
"Rev. Otis Garland gave the closing prayer, one of
dedication. In conclusion, members of the Legion
Post retired the colors.
"Throughout the afternoon, iced orange juice and
assorted sandwiches were served in the lunch room.
Members of the Woman's Club, Junior Woman's
Club, Garden Club, Business and Professional
Women's Club and Wednesday Musicale had this fea-
ture in charge.
"Baskets of the most gorgeous flowers were used
effusively in all the rooms. These were gifts from the
various business houses of the county and from other
friends.
"An estimated crowd of 3,000 people attended the
dedication.
"Members of the faculty of Hardee County High
School include the following teachers: Joel Evers,
principal; Isabel F. Akins, E.E. Bagwell, Katherine
Bostick, Golda Carlton, Frances Causey, Paul Creech,
Ralph Fritz, R.G. Manley, V.G. Matherly, Sarah
Mclnnis, Thelma Cole Miller, Alice T. Pearce, C.A.
Platt, Mattie Mae Saunders, Norma Shackelford,
Louise Southerland, Mary Louise Van Natta, Maude
Wilkinson and Lorraine Young."

THE
SOWER

Michael A. Guido
Mener, Georgia


A native of Africa said, "Years
ago when one in my village died,
the witch doctor put into his hand
as he left this world a dead man's
bone."
But he added, "Now that I'm a
Christian, I'm holding the hand of
my living Lord, for the Bible says,
'Yea though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil; for Thou art with me.'"
One day I reached out to the
Lord Jesus and He took hold of my
hand. When I pass through the
valley, He'll be holding my hand as
He receives me into heaven.
Will He be holding your hand?

Former Hardee Wildcat standout Johnny Ray Harris has just completed his first week of football
camp at the University of the Cumberlands (Ky.) under Head Coach John Bland. Team and indi-
vidual drills, team-building activities and conditioning were the goals of the camp which includ-
ed 130 student-athletes. "The young kids showed us that they can help us," said Bland. Harris
(second from left) is joined by Florida teammates Bob Evans, to his right) and Robert Chester,
Jarvis Williams and Desrick Jones. The Patriots have been picked third in the Mid-South
Conference East pre-season poll. They hope for a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic
(NAIA) play-off berth. The season starts Sept. 1 in Corbin, Ky against the Bulldogs of Union
College in the "Battle for the Brass Lantern."

Part 2
ANIMAL ABUSE ISSUES


Over the course of my 40 years in practice, I have been to countless
seminars to discuss an emerging change of values regarding animal cruelty
and animal rights.
The issues, in my opinion, are two different subjects, but they are tied
together as applied to function in our society and in the developed world.
The issues are primarily driven by forces in Europe and in the United
States. Frankly the rest of the world has far more serious issues to deal with,
like providing food for themselves. Their animals are dealt with in differ-
ent ways.
In China, for example, they eat dogs. My daughter-in-law, who was on
the staff at Duke University, was on a trip to China recently, and she talked
about riding by and seeing thousands of dogs being raised for human con-
sumption and not for pets.
The French still relish horse meat, but there has been a new wave of
resistance by activists groups in the United States against killing horses for
human consumption. Now, most horse meat from this country is shipped to
S Europe.
Europe is either behind us or ahead of us regarding how we react to this
issue. I recently heard a speaker at a seminar in Orlando discuss a veteri-
narian's responsibility for writing a health certificate. He said, for instance,
if an animal is put on a truck to go to an abittour, or slaughter house as it in
known in this country, that veterinarian could be fined as much as $15,000
if one of the animals suffered even a minor injury during transportation.
Apparently, this would be a reflection on the judgment of the veterinarian
who wrote the health certificate.
In Europe, in the Common Market, if an animal is older than three
months of age the veterinarian must administer general anesthesia to cas-
trate young male animals or to dehorn anything. Frankly this seems extreme
to me.
Animals in this country are usually castrated as early as possible
because there is less blood loss, and it is done so rapidly that time tempers
any pain. This idea would horrify ranchers if they were required to admin-
ister general anesthesia to the thousands of calves they work every day.
In California recently, the city of Hollywood passed an ordinance that
prevented declawing cats. That law was later overturned and court chal-
lenged because in California a city does not have the right to pass a law that
,supersedes the State Veterinary Practice Act, which was passed by the leg-
islature.
By and large veterinarians line up on the side of declawing because we
realize thousands of cats would lose their home if they continued to destroy
expensive furniture and harm their owners.
I would admit a diligent person could possibly train a cat to use a
scratching post, but cats are popular pets in our society because they require
less time and attention than a dog. Actually cats can manage and maintain
'themselves Jn a confined apartment much better than dogs.
SMany cats owners are, elderly, and they have extremely fragile skin
:which puts them in the position of having to choose between declawing or
Inot having a cat at all, despite the fact that they are such wonderful and
!devoted companions.
I recently read an article in the newspaper about a move to establish
:laws that would give animals the same protection that children have. In
essence, the animal's owner would be in a custodial position and be legal-
ly responsible for a pet's care and behavior, so it has become a relevant
issue for veterinarians and for pet owners.
l Transcend political correctness and strive for human righteousness.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, it's finally here.
The opening weekend of college football is upon us. Grab the charcoal
and steaks with the rest of the tailgate necessities and head to a game or curl
up on a couch for a long weekend. Games begin Thursday night on ESPN.
There are many tuneup games for the big schools but there are some great
games also.
.. One conference we have not previewed is Conference USA where
UCF resides. Boise State opened some eyes with last year's win over
Oklahoma in a bowl game, shattering the myth of Non-BCS Conferences'
not being worthy of a BCS game. There have always been teams that were
politically denied the bowl and the money that goes with it; Tulane in 1998
and Marshall in 1999 both went unbeaten and did not receive a bowl wor-
thy of their accomplishments. Neither did UCF in the Dante Culpepper era.
These, now CUSA teams, were more than deserving. CUSA power
Southern Miss has embarrassed a few BCS teams in its history also, just ask
Brett Favre. Could 2007 break the CUSA exclusion ?
The UCF Golden Knights welcome fans to a brand new 45,000-seat
stadium in 2007. The impressive Bright House Networks Stadium will host
ESPN's Gameday Crew and the Texas Longhorns on Sept. 15. Not a bad
spotlight to have on a school craving national attention. UCF returns 19
starters from a disappointing 2006 squad that dropped from 8 wins to 4 after
a great 2005 campaign.
The East Division of CUSA looks to have Southern Miss in the driver's
seat. The Golden Eagles return 16 starters from a 9-win season including
Damion Fletcher, a 1388-yard rusher as a freshman. Add to the ground
attack Antwain Easterling, a back who was rated as one of the nation's top
five last year as a high school senior. USM plays an interesting schedule in
2007 also. The Eagles visit Tennessee (9/8/07) and Boise State (9/27/07).
They do not have to face Houston or Tulsa, predicted to be the top CUSA
West teams. However, USM will find out the road to a CUSA Title runs
through Huntington, W. Va. on a Sunday night ESPN game in October
when they face Marshall.
Marshall should return to its winning ways and capture one of CUSA's
seven bowl spots in 2007. All-American Center Doug Legursky leads an
:experienced offensive line. Senior QB Bernard Morris is facing stiff chal-
Ilenges from a pack of talented QBs not seen since Chad Pennington and
Byron Leftwich were there. The receiving corp is led by All-American
Cody Slate at tight end while Darius Passmore leads a group of WRs rem-
inisent of the days when Troy Brown and Randy Moss were All-Americans.
Defensive coordinator Steve Dunlap is one of the nation's best.
Improvement was a given there as soon as HC Mark Snyder announced his
hiring. The Thunder will be back in the Herd in 07.
The movie We are Marshall comes out Sept. I on DVD. The story-
line is about the fateful plane crash on Nov. 14, 1970 that took the lives of
,75 people including the Marshall football team, coaches, boosters and the
flight crew. The film conveys the unimaginable grief and hard times at the
Huntington, W. Va. school and its struggle to keep the football teams' mem-
ory alive by saving the program. The Herd suffered through losing seasons
from 1971 to 1984 when it finally had a winning record. Those winning
records continued throughout the 1990s when Marshall won National
Championships in 1992 and 1996. The Herds' 117 wins made Marshall the
winningest team in college football in the decade of the 90s. If you thought
Rudy and Glory Road were inspirational, you haven't seen anything yet.
"We are Marshall" is a must for anyone's collection.
CUSA Predictions for the East Division are Southern Miss 10-2,
Marshall 8-4, East Carolina 7-5, UCF 6-6, Memphis 6-6 and UAB 1-10.
The West Division looks like Houston 11-1, Tulsa 10-2, SMU 6-6, UTEP


5-7, Rice 5-7 and Tulane 4-8.
Now for this week's Bill 0' Fare:
1. Western Kentucky at Florida Tebow will lead the defending'
National Champions to an impressive 55-14 win in the Swamp. Ponce
DeLeon wrote in his diary in 1513 that he had never seen so many Gators
when he landed on Melbourne Beach. If he makes it to the game, he better
buy a program. He will see 105 Gators play in this one.
2. Marshall at Miami What do Tommy Bowden at Clemson and
new Canes HC Randy Shannon have in common? On Sept. 2 both can
lament how they lost their head coaching debut to Marshall. The last home
opener ever in the Orange Bowl for the Hurricanes will echo with the chant
"We are Marshall ". Marshall 24 Miami 17 GOOOOOO Herd.
3. Western Michigan at West Virginia The nation's best backfield
will put up 400 yards on the ground as the Mountaineers make Parents Day
for the students one to remember. West Virginia 58 WMU 7.
4. LSU at Mississippi State The Tigers open the season on a.
Thursday night making a statement on ESPN. LSU, West Virginia and,
Southern Cal are the top 3 pre-season teams predicted to play for a National :
Championship in January. LSU 44 MSU 13.
5. East Carolina at Virginia Tech Skip Holtz would love to ruin the
day for VPI. CUSA fans would love to see it also. ESPN has the Gameday
Crew in Blacksburg for this one. It would be a long shot. VPI 45 East
Carolina 21.
6. Oklahoma State at Georgia Mark Richt has a solid opener. The
Cowboys have 17 starters back from a 7 win team. Good cross conference
game to watch. Georgia 31 OSU 21.
7. Kansas State at Auburn This is not a good year to play Auburn
on its home turf. KSU is not what it was a few years back either. AU could
be the SEC West sleeper team in 07. Auburn 34 KSU 13.
8. FSU at Clemson Time for another Bowden Bowl. This time the
Tigers' ground game helps the son overcome the father. Clemson to take the
ACC in 07 is still the call here. Clemson 31 FSU 24.
9. Troy State at Arkansas The Hogs do have the Darren McFadden.
Can he get his yards against the Sun Belt's best team? Don't sell the Trojans
short. Arkansas 27 Troy 17.
10. Tennessee at California Great matchup of the SEC and Pac-10.
Either team could be a contender or spoiler in its own conference. Cart
Hefney cover DeSean Jackson? Cal 31 Tennessee 27.
11. Elon at South Florida Bulls tuning up for Auburn? An upset of
Auburn would rank with their wins over Louisville in 05 and West Virginia .
in 06. USF 56 Elon 10.
12. Western Carolina at Alabama Saban opens easy, Catamounts
get a nice paycheck. Bama 49 WCU 7.
13. Georgia Tech at Notre Dame GT is ready despite losing Calvin
Johnson. GT 33 Notre Dame 17.
14. Murray State at Louisville Cards need a warmup or two before
embarrassing Kentucky. U of L 59 Murray State 13.
15. Mississippi at Memphis A strong chance for CUSA to lodge a
win over the SEC. Memphis 24 Ole Miss 21. .
16. Idaho at Southern Cal Trojans mash these potatoes. USC 62
Idaho 17.
17. Appalachian State at Michigan Mountaineers are the 1-AA
National Champs. Good time to show their cause against the Big 10. Many
MAC Teams compete well against this Big 10, why not Appy? Michigan 27
Appy State 17.
18. Houston at Oregon Another stunner for CUSA as the Cougars
take the Quack away from the Ducks. UH 37 Oregon 27.
19. Buffalo at Rutgers Scarlet Knights, ready to challenge for the
Big East Title, open with a MAC team. There is some enthusiasm in Jersey.
Rutgers 41 Buffalo 17.
20. Louisiana-Lafayette at South Carolina Gamecocks lurking in
the SEC, ready to attack the big boys? USC 38 LL 10.

Class Available On


Managing Grazing


The South Florida Beef-Forage
Program will be holding its second
annual Grazing Management
School on Sept. 5-6.
The school begins with class-
room work in Arcadia on the first
day and concludes out in the field
in Ona on the second day.
Grazing management concepts
and methods are discussed in a
classroom setting during that day,
and the theories taught are support-
ed by practical applications in the
field during day two's tour to
selected area ranches and the Ona
Range Cattle Research & Edu-
cation Center.
Grazing management is the
manipulation of livestock grazing
to obtain specific outputs of live-
stock products. It involves careful
management of both pasture and
animals to meet desired objectives.
The course is sponsored by the


South Florida" Beef-Forage Pro-
gram of the University of Florida's
Cooperative Extension Service. It
is conducted with the volunteer
assistance of area-livestock produc-
ers and Allied Industries.
It represents separation of the
original Forage & Pasture Marage-
ment School into subject compo-
nents that can be taught in a couple
of days, and is a more advanced
course than the recently offered.
Grazing Management 101. It is part
of a continuing multi-county edu-
cation effort to help south-central
Florida producers raise and market
higher quality beef cattle, per cow
per acre, profitably.
Registration for the Grazing
Management School is $80.
Registration forms and program
brochures can be obtained by con-
tacting Hardee County Extension
Director Lockie Gray at 773-2164.
